The Boldest Prediction of 2020

Everything you need to know about COVID-19 testing, including RT-PCR tests. And how it leads to one of our biggest predictions of 2020.

Dear Reader,

Over the past decade, many of you have witnessed my predictions come true – from a Trump presidency to the most recent V-shaped stock market rebound.

And no matter how obscure these predictions were, time eventually proved them correct.

I proved this to you last week in a recent post, COVID-19 Predictions for the Stock Market: Were We Right?

In fact, if you would have listened back in March – when the world was falling apart – you would likely be in a solid financial position.

Does that make me a psychic? No.

Does that make me a lucky guesser? Perhaps a little.

But what’s most important when it comes to these predictions is research – more importantly, unbiased research.

You see, many people get too caught up in one view that they are unwilling to see another side; others get too caught up in the fact that what seems abnormal is a conspiracy theory.

The U.S. election is the perfect example.

It doesn’t matter if voter fraud evidence is abundant; those who hate Trump will dismiss all of it.

The next perfect example is COVID-19 (COVID).

It doesn’t matter how much evidence shows that the current testing methods for COVID-19 are highly inaccurate – as Musk recently tweeted through personal experience himself – governments around the world will force a lockdown.

Elon Musk Covid-19 Test TweetBut the question is, “Why?”

Today, I am going to end this letter with one of my boldest predictions ever. I urge you to honestly read this letter in its entirety – whether you agree with me or not. This may be the most important letter you will read in 2020.

Most importantly, I will walk you through how I came up with this prediction – so that you, too, can do the same in the future.

Here goes.

The Biggest Test in the World

COVID cases are skyrocketing all around the world. But what does that really mean?

To answer that, we need to start from the beginning: the COVID test.

There are two types of COVID tests: diagnostic and antibodies.

Since a diagnostic test is what confirms if you have an active coronavirus infection, that’s what we’ll focus on.

So how does it work?

Via the FDA:

“Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests– molecular tests, such as RT-PCR tests, that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins from the virus.”

In other words, there are two major forms of COVID diagnostic tests: RT-PCR and Antigen.

The Gold Standard

In Canada, and the U.S., the RT-PCR tests are the gold standard for diagnosing COVID – so that is what we’ll focus on.

Via The Canadian Government:

“To date, testing has relied on RT-PCR testing performed on a nasopharyngeal sample (N.P.) or alternate respiratory sample collected by a health care professional. This testing method will remain the gold standard for detecting SARS-CoV-2 infection in Canada.”

RT-PCR stands for Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction.

Now, I can go into many details about what this type of test actually is, but I’d rather refer you to the many sources out there – since I am not a scientist.

But let me simplify it as best as I can.

Viruses are complicated assemblies of molecules, essentially packets of information (DNA or RNA) forming a genome.

The RT-PCR test attempts to highlight specific parts of the virus sequence. However, because these molecules are hard to detect, the DNA/RNA must be amplified or multiplied a number of times before it can be highlighted.

When it comes to COVID-19, the RT-PCR test is looking for the sequence SARS-CoV-2, an RNA virus.

RNA viruses are very well-known, ranging from influenza and measles to EBOLA and ZIKA.

The RT-PCR test does not identify the whole virus but sequences of its viral genome.

In other words, the test itself doesn’t prove there is a virus, only that specific gene sequences of the virus exist.

That means it can lead to many false positives.


The virus doesn’t have to exist in its complete form for the test to show a positive result; all it has to do is find a small part of the gene sequence.

The great thing about the RT-PCR test is that it has the ability to find something, no matter how small, by merely amplifying it as much as necessary to find it.

We call this the amplification cycle or cycle threshold (Ct).

A Ct of 40 means that the lab has exponentially amplified the cycle 40 times. In other words, it’s 2 to the power of 40. So 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2…40 times over.

This is extremely important.


Via NY Times:

“The PCR test amplifies genetic matter from the virus in cycles; the fewer cycles required, the greater the amount of virus, or viral load, in the sample. The greater the viral load, the more likely the patient is to be contagious.

This number of amplification cycles needed to find the virus, called the cycle threshold, is never included in the results sent to doctors and coronavirus patients, although it could tell them how infectious the patients are.”

In other words, the higher the Ct, the lower the viral load and the harder it is to culture a virus from the sample.

Via Eurosurveillance:

“We observed a strong relationship between Ct value and ability to recover infectious virus. The estimated OR of recovering infectious virus decreased by 0.67 for each unit increase in Ct value (95% CI: 0.58–0.77) (Figure 2). Virus propagation was successful from five of 60 samples with Ct > 35; all five were from symptomatic cases and none had severe illness. The estimated probability of recovery of virus from samples with Ct > 35 was 8.3% (95% CI: 2.8%–18.4%).”

Take a look:

Their study shows that using a Ct value of 35, the probability of recovering a virus from a sample is just 8%. Anything above 40 is improbable.

This leads us to viral load – a great indicator of how contagious or how sick someone is, based on how much of the virus they have in their body.

This is the same rationale for wearing a mask.

Masks can prevent large particles from entering your system, but not all of them. The idea is that if someone infected with COVID sneezes on you while you’re wearing a mask, the less likely you are to get sick because only a small amount of the virus may have entered your body – perhaps not enough to make you sick.

Simply put, the more virus you get into your body, the sicker you might become.

In other words, an RT-PCR test doesn’t tell you if you have a virus or even that you’re sick or contagious, it just tells you some sequence of a virus exists.

Furthermore, the test cannot distinguish between inactive and reproductive matter.

That means a positive result may happen simply because the test found a fragment of a molecule, for example, a fragment of a molecule from a person who won a battle with a benign cold coronavirus in the past.

But therein lies the biggest problem.

Do you know what Ct count most labs use?

Forty. Four Zero. 40.

Recall that it’s highly unlikely that a lab can even culture a virus at all using a Ct value of 40.

What does that mean?

Via NYT:

“Most tests set the limit at 40, a few at 37. This means that you are positive for the coronavirus if the test process required up to 40 cycles, or 37, to detect the virus.

Tests with thresholds so high may detect not just live virus but also genetic fragments, leftovers from infection that pose no particular risk — akin to finding a hair in a room long after a person has left, Dr. Mina said.

Any test with a cycle threshold above 35 is too sensitive, agreed Juliet Morrison, a virologist at the University of California, Riverside. “I’m shocked that people would think that 40 could represent a positive,” she said.

A more reasonable cutoff would be 30 to 35, she added. Dr. Mina said he would set the figure at 30, or even less. Those changes would mean the amount of genetic material in a patient’s sample would have to be 100-fold to 1,000-fold that of the current standard for the test to return a positive result — at least, one worth acting on.”

If a Ct of 40 is too high, why are labs around the world using it? Why does the WHO recommend a Ct as high as 45?

I’ll get to that in just a bit.

The Truth About Ct

Let’s take a look at what happens when we start to use a more realistic Ct.

Via NYT, continued:

“In three sets of testing data that include cycle thresholds (Ct), compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York and Nevada, up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus, a review by The Times found.

On Thursday, the United States recorded 45,604 new coronavirus cases, according to a database maintained by The Times.

If the rates of contagiousness in Massachusetts and New York were to apply nationwide, then perhaps only 4,500 of those people may actually need to isolate and submit to contact tracing.”

In other words, the data suggests that only 10% of those who tested positive for COVID may actually be infectious and need to isolate, if they’re even sick or contagious at all.

So why are we locking down entire populations?!?

But wait, it gets worse.

NYT continued

“Officials at the Wadsworth Center, New York’s state lab, have access to C.T. values from tests they have processed, and analyzed their numbers at The Times’s request. In July, the lab identified 872 positive tests, based on a threshold of 40 cycles.

With a cutoff of 35, about 43 percent of those tests would no longer qualify as positive. About 63 percent would no longer be judged positive if the cycles were limited to 30.

In Massachusetts, from 85 to 90 percent of people who tested positive in July with a cycle threshold of 40 would have been deemed negative if the threshold were 30 cycles, Dr. Mina said. “I would say that none of those people should be contact-traced, not one,” he said.

Other experts informed of these numbers were stunned.

I’m really shocked that it could be that high — the proportion of people with high C.T. value results,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. “Boy, does it really change the way we need to be thinking about testing.”

But wait, it gets worse…again.

Via NYT:

“…Several scientists working with harmless genetic material have discovered that their research may have contaminated their coronavirus tests.

… Experts noted that these incidents had exposed troubling weaknesses in testing and isolation strategies, and should serve as a powerful reminder of both the promise and perils of coronavirus diagnostics, which continue to be rolled out at breakneck speed.

The contamination events played out similarly at several institutions. The Church lab, where five people have tested positive, was among the earliest. Nine scientists in three separate research groups at the neighboring Wyss Institute were soon to follow, as well as two members of a lab at M.I.T. run by the Crispr scientist Feng Zhang. Some 50 miles south, 10 people at Brown University suffered a similar experience shortly after the campus reopened for fall term. Six more such cases have been identified at Cornell.

… After the spate of positive test results this summer, researchers at the Wyss Institute and the Church lab, led by the virologist Lindsey Robinson-McCarthy, started to survey their surroundings for genetic residue. Wayward bits of DNA, they found, had made their way onto equipment, sinks, door handles, backpacks and clothing. A few fragments even hitchhiked home with one researcher, contaminating a doormat that then deposited the molecules onto the shoe of an unwitting family member.

“It was everywhere,” said Gabriel Filsinger, a member of the Church lab who has been working with coronavirus genetic material and tested positive in June. “It went further than we would ever imagine. My backpack has been continuously positive this entire time.”

Not everyone who came into contact with the DNA ended up with a positive result. But many of the tests that were taken required people to swab their own noses; genetic material could have drifted in atop an unwashed hand, or via a nostril teeming with fragments of inhaled DNA.”

In other words, there is a possibility that many who tested positive for COVID may have been misdiagnosed – especially when you consider that many of these testers are volunteers who have received very little training.

Combine that with an RT-PCR tests that amplify at a staggering rate of 2 to the 40th power, and you have a recipe for false positives.

I know this sounds crazy, but this is fact – I challenge any doctor or scientist to dispute what I have just shown you.

Now, what if we were to extrapolate the Ct count for everyone who died from COVID?

We already know that many who died from COVID not only had underlying conditions but were mostly of old age. Could COVID have sped their demise?


But shouldn’t we learn more by extrapolating their Ct data from the RT-PCR tests?


But why don’t we?

Herein lies the most significant question.

While I can’t give you an exact answer, let’s look at what’s happening around the world to determine that.

Hold onto your hats because you WILL change the way you view the world after this.

The Global Reset

I have written about the next great economic reset many times; for example, here and here, and in 2017, when I wrote via my letter, “These Six Events Will Determine Our Future:

“When we reach the near extremities of modern civilization, the ultimate consequence is a complete reset of the financial system – a complete reset of government.”

At first, I thought the reset would be caused by a massive financial meltdown – or even war.

But given how deep the world is in debt and how intertwined our global economies have become, the bubble would have to keep going.

For example, if the U.S. prints money to stave off a financial crisis, every country ends up doing the same – and the cycle repeats.

War, on the other hand, only pushes citizens away from its government and rulers.

So, what’s the next big solution?

How do you reset the entire world and have every country synchronized to do it?

How about a global lockdown that forces the entire global economy to suffer at the same time?

How about a global pandemic that forces every government to pour debt onto its citizens?

Now, I know this sounds crazy, but what if I told you that the biggest players in the world have already planned this out?

What if I told you they already have the blueprint for the world’s reset?

What if I told you that they even call this plan “The Great Reset?”

Don’t believe me?

Just ask the world leaders who are part of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The Three Components of the Great Reset

Via WEF:

“The Great Reset agenda would have three main components.

The first would steer the market toward fairer outcomes.

To this end, governments should improve coordination (for example, in tax, regulatory, and fiscal policy), upgrade trade arrangements, and create the conditions for a “stakeholder economy.” At a time of diminishing tax bases and soaring public debt, governments have a powerful incentive to pursue such action.

Moreover, governments should implement long-overdue reforms that promote more equitable outcomes. Depending on the country, these may include changes to wealth taxes, the withdrawal of fossil-fuel subsidies, and new rules governing intellectual property, trade, and competition.

In other words, it’s a global coordinated effort to raise taxes, get rid of fossil fuels, and share intellectual property.

Continued via WEF…

“The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability.

Here, the large-scale spending programs that many governments are implementing represent a major opportunity for progress. The European Commission, for one, has unveiled plans for a €750 billion ($826 billion) recovery fund. The U.S., China, and Japan also have ambitious economic-stimulus plans.

Rather than using these funds, as well as investments from private entities and pension funds, to fill cracks in the old system, we should use them to create a new one that is more resilient, equitable, and sustainable in the long run.

This means, for example, building “green” urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.”

In short, the Great Reset will include massive government spending via higher taxes to usher in a new wave of “building green urban infrastructure.”

Continued via WEF…

“The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges. During the COVID-19 crisis, companies, universities, and others have joined forces to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, and possible vaccines; establish testing centers; create mechanisms for tracing infections; and deliver telemedicine. Imagine what could be possible if similar concerted efforts were made in every sector.”

One can immediately think of a coordinated effort to track everyone by tracing infections and vaccine records.

After reading the WEF’s Great Reset agenda, you may be thinking, “How come that sounds so familiar?”

“Who has been talking about a wealth tax?”

“Who has been talking about massive green infrastructure programs?”

Let me tell you.

JB and JT: Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau.

Biden has long talked about increasing taxes and the inclusion of a wealth tax.

Trudeau and the Liberals have done the same – most recently in Trudeau’s throne speech.

And when it comes to green infrastructure?

Yup, they are committed to those as well.

Here’s Biden’s:

And Trudeau? He has already begun this process since he’s been in power, with billions upon billions already committed and more to come.

It’s no secret that Trudeau and Biden are big supporters of the WEF and its players.

If you’re not familiar with WEF, you may be familiar with Davos – the invitation-only event comprised of world leaders and billionaires. Davos is the WEF’s annual conference, where no one is allowed except billionaires and world leaders.

What’s Next?

I am sure by now your head is spinning. But we’re not done.

Last week, I made a post about my COVID-19 predictions.

In that post, I recalled one of my predictions: COVID-19 will come back for a second wave.

And it won’t come back simply because people aren’t wearing masks or following social distancing – it will come back because the weather will get cold. And with cold weather comes colds, flus, and COVID-19.

That also means more people will be scared and rush out to get tested. As this happens, the positive test numbers will undoubtedly climb in all of the countries around the world that are entering their coldest months.

In my last post, I showed you how many countries had COVID cases spike around the same time and in lockstep; it was so coordinated that it was almost as if it was planned. Could all of these nations and the people within them somehow stopped social distancing and wearing masks at the same time?

I doubt it.

But regardless, cases will only climb from here. As such, to combat the spread of COVID, the government of many of these countries will once again force or threaten some sort of lockdown on its citizens.

Is it a surprise that Trudeau has already told Canadians that Christmas is at risk?

It won’t matter that most RT-PCR tests are false positives – the tests will increase, just as in the U.K., where the U.K. Ministry of Defence has called in the British Army to assist in the nationwide Covid-19 testing programme.

The Outcome

Cases will rise. Businesses will shutter.

In the U.S. alone, the travel industry directly employs 9 million people and indirectly, 15.8 million.

I can all but guarantee that most of us won’t be flying out of the country anytime soon.

This is one of those letters that I fear will come true. It’s one of those where I truly hope I am wrong.

But based on what I just told you, my conclusion is rather simple.

The COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions will be used once again for the purpose of this Great Reset.

The billionaires associated with this Great Reset will end up owning everything in the aftermath. They will be the only ones left with enough money to pick up the broken pieces of the economy.

Moreover, they will end up owning entire sectors of the economy (think the travel industry) by buying bankrupt corporations (think retail outlets, hotels, and airlines) – and even bankrupt countries.

The government will also step in and buy the broken pieces of these assets and turn them into low-income housing, to further support their initiative and sustain their grasp on voters. The Canadian Liberals are already doing this.

This will be the biggest generational wealth transfer in history.

It’s no wonder Biden’s tax plan calls for an incredible increase on the effective tax rate on estates, equal to a whopping 67.3%!

Take a look:


Good luck leaving anything to your children when you pass.

What about work?

Without a doubt, unemployment will climb – and even moreso as AI takes over. This will force governments to establish some sort of universal basic income (I already predicted this in my letter from 2016, The Secret Government Experiments). Much of this will be paid for by the hard-working and risk-taking entrepreneurs, as the wealth tax forces them to become less-wealthy and thus less challenging to the elite.

Those with homes and mortgage payments who have lost their jobs will be able to remain in their homes but will have to hand over their property through some type of reverse-mortgage-style payment. Those who remain solvent will see their property taxes increase to level the playing field.

Think this is far-fetched?

Just take a look at the WEF’s prediction for what the world will be like in 2030:

WEF 2030 Prediction

That’s right. One of the first predictions from the experts and world leaders at WEF is that “You’ll own nothing. And You’ll be happy.”

But guess what? Someone will own it all – it just won’t be you.

And it will all happen in the name of “saving” you – not the drastic lockdown measures based on a test that has a 10% accuracy rate.

Now, if you think this sounds too crazy, watch Trudeau’s speech from September 29, 2020 below:

He even said this pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset! Did you ask for a reset prior to COVID?

Hmm, sounds awfully like the WEF’s Great Reset Plan…

Via WEF’s Now is the Time for a Great Reset:

“The COVID-19 crisis is affecting every facet of people’s lives in every corner of the world. But tragedy need not be its only legacy. On the contrary, the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future.”

And if you’re not familiar with what Trudeau is referring to when he speaks of SDG’s, it’s the WEF’s Sustainable Development Goals that are to be achieved by 2030 – yup, the same year where the WEF predicts, “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy.”

Oh, the irony: WEF leaders have a plan to achieve their goals by 2030, but also predict that in the same year, you won’t own anything.

Could their plan be the reason behind their prediction?

Now, I am not saying the WEF orchestrated the COVID pandemic by any means, but they certainly are using it to move ahead with their initiatives.

When COVID first hit, very little was known about it. But over the last 6 months, we have learned a great deal including the fact that it really is not as deadly as we once thought.

Furthermore, we have always known that a high Ct is unreliable. So why on earth are we still using such a high Ct value when it comes to COVID testing?

You tell me by clicking the link below.


It’s crazy to think that the entire world is willing and accepting of lockdowns based on the results of a COVID-test that is so highly inaccurate. This is fact and cannot be disputed.

Am I saying COVID isn’t something we should worry about? Certainly not.

But I am saying the numbers don’t add up to these severe economic and social global lockdowns being deployed.

Sweden didn’t lockdown, and Britain did – yet, the two nations have comparable disease and mortality statistics. The U.S. states are no different.

I hope after reading this letter, you see the bigger picture.

More importantly, I hope this newfound knowledge will help you make better investment decisions moving forward.

Because the only way to survive this is to either make more money, or convince the majority to fight back on how COVID is tested – hard to do when the media thrives off negativity.

Prepare for another lockdown.

Seek the truth,
Ivan Lo

  1. kosic thought of the day – Corona Virus – why its here and what is the goal (wriiten march 30) … hello folks,
    the US is now the epicenter like i said it would be last sunday
    i know this would be the case as the US wanted to infect its population and China happily agreed to assist as they are godless scum by virtue of being communists
    (communism was the idea of a child of satan)
    remember the US is owned by the same satanic scum that used the greatest zionist (hitler) who ever lived to wipe out the jews and kill 10’s of millions of christians because we christians loved killing each other as they knew we would gladly do that as national pride was above serving the God we claimed to be a servant of
    just a few years ago the US requested the saudi’s to send over some nut bars so they could fly planes into the WTC so they could use that as an excuse (false flag) and then destroy the mideast
    so given the above we know the US would be so corrupt and evil …lets examine the logic as to why u would want to infect the world with a virus
    in 30 to 50 years the system would crash due to underfunded pensions
    so since we know this to be a reality how would you solve it
    kill off the old now so you would not need to pay them later is the reason this virus was made
    the other reason was to bankrupt all the people who owned their own business so that the powers that be can consolidate their power in totality by creating 2 classes the poor and super rich (no more middle class) as the best slave is a poor one
    the final reason is the usher in the new world order which is a few nations versus the 192 we have now as when the economies of africa collaspe as they cant contain the virus will lead them to become one nation as is the case with europe as it will implode due to the fact you cant save italy from its debts
    the end game is when india collapses under the virus it will create the grounds for a war between india and pakistan as that serves the interests of the people who created the virus …. this is the war i have been speaking about for years that
    starts in and around 2025
    the benefits to china is it eliminates its enemy india and america gets rid of the only muslim nation with nukes as the zionist scum have realized that the christians today will no longer fight wars on their behalf
    if it wasnt man made China would have multiple epicenters but they dont as that was the agreement they made with the owners of the US who asked them to infect europe and the world
    why is italy the epicenter in europe..its because rome is within europe and the goal of the zionist has been to murder christians since time began as God sent Jesus to save the jews from the grips of satan and because of this christians have been slaughtered whenever a chance presented itself (ie. wars)
    this my friends is the future
    i hope u stay safe as it will pass and the good news is we will be made poor but at least we wont be destroyed in a war (thats us (WESTERNER) the over educated over consuming over sexed godless people who worship satan and dont even know it via liberalism which came from athiesm and its leader satan) … humans need to slaughter themselves before they remember God and it will happen again as this cycle never ends as people always put themselves first when it should be God first …THATS THE LESSON THAT NEEDS TO BE LEARNED AND HOPEFULLY AFTER THIS SLAUGHTER WE HUMANS WILL NEVER FORGET IT …

    1. Without getting too political – it would put a massive wrench in many world leaders goals. Hence, such a coordinated effort from media to remove Trump. Trump is a nationalist – globalists hate them.

  2. Thank you for the insightful commentary as always it comes from a stance of intelligence and philosophy and not from a perspective of fear and panic. I always knew that this was not something that originated by accident and that it was just human error . I believe this has been in the works for several years and 2020 just happened to be the perfect storm for releasing this world wide pandemic as ways and a means to control the global economy and society itself .. I am glad there are people like yourself that question and don’t just accept whatever our governments throw at us , but if this is in some way going to sustain our economy and make life a little easier to digest and to live in a more fair world economically speaking and can get rid of poverty at some level and make it easier for people to attain some of their goals im all for it .

    1. Thanks Erick. Your comment is truly appreciated. It’s unfortunate that the majority aren’t open to information unless it suits their views. We were even called murderers for publishing the statistics related to COVID. Take a look at WEF’s leader, Klaus, and his views on the world…

  3. More importantly, I hope this newfound knowledge will help you make better investment decisions moving forward.
    That statement does not compute based on what you have laid out. What kind of investment is there? Please follow up with a recommendation/example.

    1. Great question Anthony. As we mentioned before, investments related to mental health is great. Commodities will also be a good idea given the infrastructure plans from China and from all of these green initiatives. Real estate will be good once it bottoms 18-24 months from now – however, taxes and regulation may make the rebound slower. Most importantly, as you invest more and conduct more research, you’ll be able to take the knowledge in this letter and use it to whatever suits you.

  4. Absolutely true, it is as if the prime ministers of each country is on the payroll of the WEF and others.
    Please tell us of assets to own that they cannot touch. I know bitcoin is one. What are the others? Please inform us . It will be a life saver.
    Thank you for the insight and understanding.
    God Bless

    1. Hi John, unfortunately, the government can and will try and reach into everything of yours. This is one reason why many wealthy Canadians have already left the country or moved their assets abroad. They have also purchased physical metals such as gold – but more as protection. Lots have purchased art and luxury goods such as watches and jewelry.

  5. In agreement with Anthony Short’s comment, the hope to make better investments seems contrarian as it will all be taken away if your predictions are correct. I agree with your views but fail to recognize how better investments will help in any way.

  6. I strongly believe that Trudeau is complicit in the computer-driven false election results recently found in the US that twice put him into power. News that the Dominion computer system that is plaguing the US election was found to be in Canada. Now Trudeau trots out his economic Reset again. Who with enough clout can bring this to the attention of the Canadian public and the appropriate government / legal officials who can call for an investigation of the last two elections? This needs to be done and be done now.

  7. I have always been a skeptic about COVIT-19 due mainly because of the discrepancies emerging in the details from country to country. China & other countries have somehow solved it with minimal cases/deaths, while others like the US are still struggling bigtime with it. I have long thought about a conspiracy theory (you have outlined well) at play here, have no proof of that and hard to believe they would purposely cause such tragedy. Nonetheless, a great reset does make sense here because we always have some kind of black swan event (i.e. 9-11 crash, Bear Stearns financial collapse, dot-com crash etc.) to reset things & that have severe and widespread impact from time to time, so I’m not putting the conspiracy theory past the powers at be just yet. Good article.

  8. Ivan – your letter lays out exactly what I have thought is going on for some time. This needs wide circulation. Can you make it shareable on social media?

  9. Good points and I learned something about testing. But you also ignore many facts. And you still use the usual things that are half truths. Florida is not getting cold and never did(I live here). Deaths are getting worse and are among a younger cadre of people than before.

    China and many other Asian nations, used to cooperating with Government and enduring “hardships” like wearing masks are NOT
    seeing great increases in virus and never had the per capita rates of the USA.Their economies are fine.

    Lastly, your predictions of billionaires owning everything by 2030 seems counter intuitive if Biden and friends are going to tax them out of existence.

    I could go on and on, but I am still waiting for your WTER prediction to come true-maybe by 2030?

    1. The cold weather is simply a guide on what happens generally when the weather gets colder – such as the flu season. Florida, even when warm, has its flu season which started early this year. If someone has a small fever from the flu, they go get tested. A rise in tests means a rise in the number of cases.

      As for as China – do you think the CCP are going to allow a test that is so highly inaccurate? They are laughing at the western world.

      As far as billionaires go – do you think billionaires keep their money in the US for Biden to tax? This is the problem with raising taxes – it only hurts the lower level millionaires. The ultra rich have the financial means necessary to avoid taxes. Just ask them.

  10. YO! mike… If there was such a thing as this god fella, the likes of you are the proof that he is messin’ with the “united” states of murica rather than blessin’… And as for the corona “crisis”, it’s nothing compared to the real and far more serious social/economic sickness destroying the social structure of the lemming like human race. Oh, and it’s a very timely weapon of mass distraction as the parasites get bailed again with TRILLIONS as they have the herds squabbling and tearing each other apart over the billions in scraps that trickle down…

  11. You forget that China “plays” with these money, so-called intellectuals. Populism will finally realize that our democracy is just rich, egos that never do what the people want. There will be civil unrest, inflation and loss of faith. Scary times.

    1. For sure John. We have a lot of information on this, but tried to leave what people could misinterpret as conspiracy. We have had many discussions with “experts” on what’s really going on – for example, China’s grasp on Biden and other notable democrats. Is it a coincidence that a virus that (believed to have) originated from China, is now destroying the western world, while China is winning and in full operation? But again, I wanted to leave this as politically unbiased as possible.

  12. The only way out of this is an informed public. Canada is a rich country that needs a visionary Prime Minister. What we have now is a globalist bringing the country to its knees

  13. Ivan do you think there will be sharp correction in the market before the reset or we will continue more or less with the same volatility till then

    1. Hi Hasmet, as we predicted before in the last newsletter before the US elections – we thought the market would continue its climb, supported by news of a vaccine, regardless of a Trump or Biden victory. There are a few caveats: 1. Stimulus might be put on hold because the US does not have a confirmed President. 2. If Trump somehow wins in court, I would bet there will be severe riots – not peaceful protests. I say this based on historical precedence over this past year. The extreme Left has been far more violent and destructive than the extreme Right. If Trump wins, I fear the extreme left, and many others, will cause serious violence and unrest. And, of course, it will be blamed on Trump. We are at a scary crossroad here. A Biden victory means the agenda of the globalist will be put into play – higher taxes, regulation, etc. If Biden removes liquidity from the market, we could see it fall – but it depends how much of that is combated by stimulus. If Trump wins, we will see further deregulation and the stock market could continue its climb as liquidity continues – however, potentially at the expense of serious civl unrest.

      Personally, I am slowly taking non-core positions off the table. If a lockdown ensues, there is a chance that the market will drop – but by how much? Remember this: If the market drops 10% from here, which it very well could, it’s still better off than it was at the beginning of the year and extremely better over the past 6 months. I would say we should take any serious drops as a potential buy-signal – especially if you have a long-term view.

      And please note that this is not investment advice, but merely my opinion – please do your own DD and speak to professionals before making investment decisions.

  14. Why do you ask me to subscribe to your free news letters when I already do.
    Do you have an investment news letter that is available for a fee? If you do it is not advertised very well.
    Why don’t you show us you have some testicular fortitude and take a position and use your contacts to protest what is going on as they are in the USA?
    No one elected Trudeau to take us on this path, or to legalize pot. Where is the referendum? I wish Canadians had some balls instead of laying down and accepting all this crap.

    1. Hi Glenn, the asking for you to subscribe is merely a function of our website – the additional subscription you may be thinking of is subscription to your comment responses when you make a comment – not our newsletter. Hope that helps.

      As for protesting in Canada, our abilities are limited but we try our best to inform Canadians as much as we can – believe me, we take a lot of slack doing it. Unless Canadians are better informed, no amount of protesting can achieve this. And you are right, I wholeheartedly agree with you on standing up and not accepting this crap. Canada will be in the hole over a trillion – and Canadians who support Trudeau will blame it on COVID – yet, Trudeau probably spent less than 10% of that on emergency measures – the rests he sent over seas and elsewhere.

      Lastly, we do put ourselves on the line every time we publish a controversial article due to the size of our readership. And believe me, off the record, we have been attacked by many for revealing truths. Hope this helps.

  15. Ivan, I have been following you for many years and you are very good at finding good investments and trends. However, my good man, this sounds like Q-anon talking.

    I fear you may be correct in many ways but WEF ‘world control’? Governments worldwide colluding to bring a ‘new world order’? A ‘plan’ to dominate monetarily for the world’s richest people?

    Such an idea has as much chance of succeeding as world peace. We as a species are hampered by our egos. The authoritarian, the dictator the military regimes and the rich people will not bend to this type of coercion. Once in a position of ‘authority’ or ‘control of the populace’ we don’t give it up easily.

    Aside from that, it is a bleak future to behold. Stay safe and keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks for your comments Roy. With regards to your statement: “fear you may be correct in many ways but WEF ‘world control’? Governments worldwide colluding to bring a ‘new world order’? A ‘plan’ to dominate monetarily for the world’s richest people?”

      Actually, WEF, and more importantly Davos, is literally comprised of world leaders and billionaires who get together to steer global policy. You could use the term NWO, and make it seem like a conspiracy. Or you could word it as a collaboration between world leaders and billionaires – which is exactly what it is. Not really a conspiracy here. Take a look at the messaging between all of these leaders, directly out of the WEF playbook…Great Reset…Build Back Better…

  16. Mr. Lo,

    I have enjoyed your letters and had a comment and a gracious reply to one of your earlier ones on the Covid,

    The beginning parts of this one on the unnecessarily high sensitivity of the Covid test are also very interesting, and probably compelling. Regardless of the probably overly high sensitivity, hundreds of thousands of people are getting sick enough to require medical care and overloading of hospitals in many areas. So how can that be happening if the tests are too sensitive? Or perhaps the results are not contradictory just too inclusive, and we just need to determine the CT PCR level that is high enough to require medical attention, and not worry about lower values? Especially if lockdowns are contemplated this seems to be necessary.

    However, you go off the rails and inaccurately report the implications of the probable false positive tests in the rest of your report:

    1. As a United States citizen I was shocked to see you state that Biden favors a wealth tax The very article you link, says that he does not: ‘”Former vice president rejects calls for new ‘wealth’ tax on millionaires and billionaires” At the very least you should correct this slur against Biden.

    2. Your citation of various writings of authors given publication space by the WEF are not inaccurate but laughable and mainly show that the WEF allows all kinds of malarkey predictions to be published with no attempt at quality control. Importantly, there is no statement that the WEF has approved these idiosyncratic predictions as official WEF policy, for to do so would merely get the WEF laughed at. I just provide two examples:

    ‘6. Today’s Syrian refugees, 2030’s CEOs. Highly educated Syrian refugees will have come of age by 2030, making the case for the economic integration of those who have been forced to flee conflict.” Some of them will be CEOs, but how many and of what meaningful companies in the next decade? The U.S. won’t even admit enough deserving refugees.

    “8. “By the 2030s, we’ll be ready to move humans toward the Red Planet.” What’s more, once we get there, we’ll probably discover evidence of alien life,” Yep, with all our other problems the WEF is going to sponsor colonizing Mars?

    3. The idea that the world governments are in cahoots lead by the WEF to orchestrate a world wide lock down to lead to a global “Reset” is perhaps an idea in Trudeaus mind, but humorous to United States citizens since the United States is not even capable in instituting a nationwide lockdown in its own country. In conclusion as we have seen with other aspects of governmental response to the Covid, the better explanation is not some great international “Reset” plan led by the WEF, but merely that the governments just don’t have the answers yet, and make mistakes. The conflicting advice on mask wearing over the last months is a good example.

    Don’t ascribe to venality that which can better be explained by incompetence.



    1. Thanks again for your well-organized comments – and most importantly, sharing your views in a manner where we can spark discussion! Here are my replies, as best as I can given time.

      First, your comment: hundreds of thousands of people are getting sick enough to require medical care and overloading of hospitals in many areas.

      That is actually not a factual statement. Very few hospitals across the US are overloaded – this is grossly being exaggerated by the media. There are just over 40k hospitalized currently in the US with COVID, not hundreds of thousands – of which, if you follow the Ct values for testing positive, may or may not be in the hospital because of COVID (they could be in there for something else and feeling sick, but tested positive.)

      US Hospital capacity is well over 900,000 beds.

      That’s just over a 4% capacity – if you consider that many hospitals have shut down elective surgeries etc. Of course, this doesn’t include the beds being used for other things – but many of these things have been shut down. There is a reason that many of the pop-up tents sites have been removed – they have remained empty for months. A simple search on this and you can see this.

      Now to your numbered questions:

      1. Biden has rejected calls for a direct wealth tax, but is increasing taxes on the wealthy, including estate taxes. Take a look at the graph. So you are correct in that it is not a direct wealth tax. A direct wealth tax is taxing someone based on how much they are worth. For example, if they are worth $10mmm, then we tax them 1% every year based on that worth – regardless of the money they make that year. My apologies for calling a wealth tax, with regards to Biden.

      2. WEF’s predictions for 2030 is just that: a prediction. However, their 2030 goals for SDG and Great Reset are actually plans and policies they are putting in place for world leaders. Those are official WEF policy, with many of them being enacted, including in Canada. As for the refugees, there is a reason why Canada and the US (if under Biden), has plans to substantially increase the intake of these refugees.

      3. It is not only in Trudeau’s mind, but the minds of many across western nations. UK, France, etc. As for the United States, without playing into politics, you will see that Biden does have an agenda to force a federal lockdown – however, many US citizens – especially those who support Trump – are against it. The US, under a nationalist (Trump) is by far the globalists’ biggest enemy. Perhaps that is why there is such an attack on Trump and his followers. Again, trying to not get political, but US history has always proved that nationalist-presidents are often attacked.

      Hope these are proper responses!

      Thanks, Alorchip

  17. The information regarding Sweden is outdated. Their death rate was approximately three times higher than their Scandinavian neighbors. Their economic downturn only less by a small margin. (Shifting the blame to the control measures from the virus itself, akin to blaming the medicine for HIV for Aids, in an earlier time) Just last week Sweden announced new restrictive measures due to the spiraling death rate. No doubt there are too many false positives. Nonetheless the death rate, which lags the number of cases by two weeks, is rising again here in the USA. As the rate of infections is rising at an accelerating pace, as is to be expected with an epidemic, it may soon pass some grim milestones. I predict more than half a million deaths by next late Spring/early Summer. So far my earlier personal online predictions have been pretty much on the money. How many more without restrictions? Is this leading to the great reset? The latter question is above my pay grade

    1. Thanks for your comments – Sweden data comparable to UK, was my point – and that remains true. However, as for death rates increasing, that is all in how the data is being measured. Again Ct values would detemerine if someone truly died from COVID, or something else such as old age. For example, in Canada, we currently have just over 11k deaths from people who tested positive for COVID. Do you know the number of those that belonged to a long-term care home? More than 90%. Data is important – and if we are talking about cases, we have to start from the beginning of that data: how tests are being done and what defines a covid case.

      The best example I can think of is this: many of us walk around with E Coli or Staph in our systems, which is very normal. If we were to use the same Ct values applied to this, we would literally all test positive for a staph infection or E Coli infection. But that simply is not the case. Recall that it is extremely difficult to culture COVID-19 for anything using a 35 Ct value. But it is extremely easy to simply swab your mouth and put it in a culture dish to culture E Coli or Staph. Bacteria vs virus, I get it. But this is just a thought process on why the first stage we should focus on is the testing.

  18. So we are to make more money. Any ideas as to how to do that. Short the market or ride it higher? Invest in gold?? Your thoughts??

  19. Just two things: If you wanted to be accurate to the true state of affairs, you should have written, “If you are a Trump loyalist, it doesn’t matter that there is zero evidence of any serious voter fraud, you will not listen to the facts anyway, but only to the lies of your leader.

    and second, testing may give a false reading of the number of infectious persons, but overflowing hospitals is cause enough for some limiting of economic activities that involve close contact of persons with others who may be spreaders without knowing it.

    Oh and just one more thing, this news is several months old, so welcome to the party!

    1. Thanks for your comment John. However, again, trying not to play politics here.

      Your comment: If you wanted to be accurate to the true state of affairs, you should have written, “If you are a Trump loyalist, it doesn’t matter that there is zero evidence of any serious voter fraud, you will not listen to the facts anyway, but only to the lies of your leader.”

      Actually, there is significant irregularities in many counties with evidence that we have witnessed ourselves. Second, we could deem these irregularities for now since they have not been proven in court. Simply saying there is zero evidence is absolutely incorrect. Zero = 0. Even if there is one case, then it cannot be zero. That is fact. Do you really think that in 150 million plus votes, there’s not even ONE count of voter fraud. Come on now! This is exactly what I mean by being unbiased.

      And second to your comment: “testing may give a false reading of the number of infectious persons, but overflowing hospitals is cause enough for some limiting of economic activities that involve close contact of persons with others who may be spreaders without knowing it.”

      As I explained in a response to another comment, hospitals are nowhere near overflowing. There are some that may are at capacity when accepting COVID patients who test positive, but very few are overflowing, if any:

      “Very few hospitals across the US are overloaded – this is grossly being exaggerated by the media. There are just over 40k hospitalized currently in the US with COVID, not hundreds of thousands – of which, if you follow the Ct values for testing positive, may or may not be in the hospital because of COVID (they could be in there for something else and feeling sick, but tested positive.)

      US Hospital capacity is well over 900,000 beds.

      That’s just over a 4% capacity – if you consider that many hospitals have shut down elective surgeries etc. Of course, this doesn’t include the beds being used for other things – but many of these things have been shut down. There is a reason that many of the pop-up tents sites have been removed – they have remained empty for months. A simple search on this and you can see this.”

  20. I see a comment which is not really true. To say that Sweden with no lockdown had the same mortality and death rates as Britain and the USA is correct but ignores the fact that Swedes are much healthier and more sensible to following government guidelines.

    On trips over a 40 year period I did not see a lot of obese citizens in Sweden. Pay attention to the photos of COVID patients in ICU hospital wards around the world. I see perhaps 80% of the photos showing obese patients! This is why the USA has the highest death rates in the world. No one ever mentions this fact. Check it out whenever you see a patient on a ventilator.

    Canada with a slightly less obesity problem has only 40% of the death rate per capita compared to the USA! Why is this? I credit our politicians of different stripes generally working together with rules and regulations rather than the total lack of coordinated effort by US politicians led by an inept president who is more concerned about the stock market than human lives

    Trump has been a do nothing leader who has to take a large measure of responsibility for the COVID death count in the USA. If he had only followed Canada’s leadership although far from perfect , the USA could have saved 120,000 lives!

    1. Hi Bob, thanks also for your comment. You make a very good point re: obesity. To that, you also mentioned death rate for the US – which I don’t believe is correct. But that could be related to reporting and how it is reported. If people test positive for COVID and we come back to find out that their Ct values showed that it took 35 Ct – they may not have died from COVID at all. Again, I am speaking hypothetically. Also, your point re: obesity is a great one. Take a look at Canada and you will see that the majority of deaths overall (90% +) are from long-term care homes. Does that not tell us something? Of the over 300k cases of testing with symptoms in Canada, we have merely a few hundred deaths from people not in a long-term care home. Pretty crazy.

      Lastly, US and Canada have very different testing rules – in the US, you can get tested if you want. In Canada, they turn you away if you don’t have any symptoms. The US has far greater testing numbers than Canada for that reason.

  21. Thank you Ivan for the POWERFUL message! I really appreciate all your effort and enjoy reading your letters. Thank you for sharing these controversial topics with your readers. You are really brave and care about your readers! I can see that. 🙂

  22. Thank you for replying to my comment-but your answers dont really ring true in full-which is what taints your otherwise excellent review of testing. Here are my comments to your reply.

    The rise in testing and positives is not nearly as important as the dramatic rise in hospitalizations and deaths recently-everywhere. Especially in Republican states(like N. Dakota-which has the highest per capita rates in the WORLD). Florida has regressed lately and not due to flu-season.

    South Korea is a better model than China(a democracy)-they are fine compared to any US state.

    Lots of Billionaires keep their money in the US because most of their billions are in their stocks(Facebook,Amazon,Tesla,Bloomberg,Twitter, and Berkshire Hathaway are just a few of many US companies with billionaire

    Even the KOCH brother(only one left)Who is a strong advocate for lower business and personal tax probably has most of his money in the US. As for millionaires(there are many many more of these than billionaires)-they will be just fine with somewhat higher taxes. They are NOT going to have all their assets taken away. That is just ridiculous.

    Lastly, your WTER letters have still not panned out. I dont blame you, it still seems to me like a good speculation. But, so far. your prediction on this stock is not even close as I suspect your conclusions will also be not close.

    1. Thanks Steve. 1. Please see my other comments re: dramatic rise in hospitals: “There are just over 40k hospitalized currently in the US with COVID, not hundreds of thousands – of which, if you follow the Ct values for testing positive, may or may not be in the hospital because of COVID (they could be in there for something else and feeling sick, but tested positive.) US Hospital capacity is well over 900,000 beds. That’s just over a 4% capacity – if you consider that many hospitals have shut down elective surgeries etc. Of course, this doesn’t include the beds being used for other things – but many of these things have been shut down. There is a reason that many of the pop-up tents sites have been removed – they have remained empty for months. A simple search on this and you can see this.”

      2. Lots of Billionaires keep their money in the US because most of their billions are in their stocks (Facebook,Amazon,Tesla,Bloomberg,Twitter, and Berkshire Hathaway are just a few of many US companies with billionaire
      founders) – that’s not how it works. Billionaires have holdings outside of the US and can own stock through these holdings companies. They could have a trust or holdco outside of the US (Panama used to be a big spot), and still own shares of US stocks. There are many tax loop holes – and they are used most effectively for people with hundreds of millions. Not so easily for people with less. Believe me on this one – we know a lot of hundred plus millionaires and some billionaires.

      3. Even the KOCH brother(only one left)Who is a strong advocate for lower business and personal tax probably has most of his money in the US. As for millionaires(there are many many more of these than billionaires)-they will be just fine with somewhat higher taxes. They are NOT going to have all their assets taken away. That is just ridiculous. – Just ask the owners of hotel chains and small business owners – if you go bankrupt, your assets get taken away.

      4. WTER – this one has been a great trade if you followed our original piece – as the stock soared to multi-bagger level months after our initial report. We then did another report post-pandemic and the stock is still higher than the price it was when we launched that one. I guess it depends where someone got in. But yes, we had hopes that it would be higher than where it trades today, since we are mostly a long-term style investor. But let’s not forget another recent idea, CXB, which is also hundreds of percentages higher.

  23. Ivan,

    Hope this finds you well.

    What can I say, its all true. This is the end point of creating an orderly society. The cattle are being moved into the pens for branding and slaughter.

    You will be tagged for your protection. You will use the government crypto for your benefit. Trust us to take care of you.

    Just wait till the age laws come in. Laws that allow those in power to remove not relevant to the public good and then we will have a truly orderly society.

    There is no way out because the majority believe what they are told, there is no truth but my truth.

    Again a brilliant piece of work. Those who know al ready know, those who don’t never will. Showers anyone?

    Thanks, Bob

    1. Bob, thank you and I very much appreciate your comments. Sad part is, no matter the data, the sheep follow. However, we won’t stop sharing our research – even if people deem it too conspiracy – which makes zero sense. A bunch of world leaders (government officials) and billionaires get together in hopes to work together – yet, they’re not working together in a coordinated effort?

    1. Technically, our prediction isn’t over. Also, on the night of the election, our prediction was correct. And again, if you read some of our content and our comments, regardless of political views, you will see that outside of what may be considered fraud or irregularities, Trump won on the night of election. The massive voter turn out in favour for Trump proves a lot of this theory. Again, I strongly urge people to not look at this as support for Trump – it really goes both ways. If there is voter fraud in favour of Trump, it needs to be addressed. If there is voter fraud in favour of Biden, it needs to be addressed. Only then can democracy live on. It’s not about Republicans vs Democrats, it’s about the people behind both groups who are really in control. I believe that past Republicans have also contributed to a lot of chaos in the past, just as much as the Democrats.

  24. Ivan, your facts may be right but your conclusions are far fetched. The COVID tests may be too sensitive but how is that proof that we are being manipulated? Ok the government response is excessive but how is that proof that it is concerted towards a covert plan to take over the world? If the plan was so covert, why would it be openly the subject of discussion and even a theme for the WEF? The global reset discussed by WEF is merely an ideological view imagined by executive chairman Klaus Schwab to seize the opportunity to rethink our economic model in better terms. It suggests orienting our economy towards social values of equality, of sharing (both material and intellectual property) as well as environmental preservation. How does that clash with commonly discussed concepts of the future? How does that lead to more inequalities, less freedom and more government control? Furthermore, I don’t see what’s wrong with the idea of building a more equal, more environmentally friendly economy? And what is wrong with having more low-income housing? WEF ideas and talks might be scary since coming from a financial and political elite, but the ideas themselves are far from scary. By the way, no treaties or acts are signed at WEF, it is not the like the WTO or the UN. Nonetheless, it’s worth keeping an eye on social and green initiatives. Though I trust your goal is to inform and not to influence, I fear you are doing more of the latter this time. I appreciate most of your letters and the information that is shared but I have to disagree with your thoughts on this one. I suggest you steer clear from conspiracy theories and stick to the point… what should we, readers as well as investors, retain from the current direction our economy is taking?

    1. Thanks Jean-Francois for your comments. A few things. You are right, it is not proof that we are being manipulated. So I ask you this.

      1. Why are we using such high Ct values, and why is this not being discussed? In places like Portugal and Germany, there are already lawsuits as it relates to the high Ct values.
      2. It isn’t a covert operation. It is out in the open, but as soon as it is discussed, people think it’s a conspiracy.

      Lastly, what was the conspiracy here? That WEF and the people associated are using the pandemic to further their agendas? Not a conspiracy at all – in fact, it’s completely out in the open – they even say so. The idea of world leaders and billionaires meeting together to work together is what WEF is about. As is the UN and WTO, which are comprised of the same players. They gather to work together. Not conspiracy. If you take a look at their agenda, however, it is high taxes – that’s just one. In fact, here is the mission statement of WEF:

      “The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.”

      Read up Klaus’ ideological views – and his book. You will see his views are extremely socialist bordering on that humans become drones with one queen working to control them all. Read his book – if you don’t find it scary that global leaders are working to adopt his views, then please share why after.

      The idea behind “stakeholder capitalism” and how Klaus perceives it is one that contradicts free markets. Here is a good article that doesn’t delve into the the authoritative spiel that Klaus provides, but rather a realistic one:

  25. But Trump did win. On the night of 11/3, he was rolling to 300+ electoral votes. Only when the battleground states stopped counting in an UNPRECEDENTED MOVE, did they miraculously find hundreds of thousands of ballots for Biden and no one else. Open your eyes.

    1. In fairness to Angela, what’s the conspiracy? And no, definitely do not keep your eyes closed. Please explain, for example, the following video: We have checked and researched the facts contained herein, publicly available information, and the facts are correct. Opinions can be discussed, but an explanation for arguing this should be had.

    2. Ivan and Marie’s additions are dead on…shocking how many people have bought in to this “safety/security” lifestyle over independence/personal freedom…if I pass on anything to my children…personal freedom and financial uncertainty should always trump guaranteed benefits and security from government. It’s not real security but subservience.

  26. Equedia — “only then can Democracy live on”; surly you gest? You have yet to produce facts that ” Trump won on election night”. Angela’s suggestion that one should “open your eyes” implies that only she can see. This Klaus guy is known for his Euroscepticism, climate change denial, homophobia and immigration, and support of free-market capitalism (wiki) and no, I doubt I spend the time with this book. Looks to me that you are playing both sides of the fence. Conspiracy: secret agreement involving great treachery — easily done with DAVOS. But I don’t believe you have swayed me enough to say that you have the open eyes.

  27. “On the night of the election, our prediction was correct” – Is this a direct quote from the Trump camp? I won’t explain why this is a dumb response because you’re smart enough to know why.

    1. I also won’t explain why my response is justified. Trump was by far in the lead on election day. Was he not? Pretty straight forward if you ask me. Perhaps you misinterpreted what I meant to say: there is, in fact, a lot of irregularities, and if we based the results only on election night, then yes, Trump won. Of course, with “COVID” things changes – my apologies for that.

  28. Thank you for your analysis & conclusion. I find it logical & reasonable until it gets to the part about liberals. Since Davos is where only governments & billionaires gather, it looks to me there is no liberal vs other “divide”. Money doesn’t gravitate or accumulate only to either liberals or others. There are both liberals & others who successfully accumulate wealth. So the implication that liberals constitute the WEF looks biased to me.

    Never-the-less, your effort, analysis & sharing are very much appreciated & I thank you againg.

  29. Hello,

    it looks like you’ve made a series of new sensational discoveries. Sorry to say, none of these are new. Fighting climate change and mostly pollution should’ve started decades ago. If you don’t agree how hard it is to breathe in big cities, then good for you. If you agree we need to continue to use fossil fuels, then good for you. If you don’t care about the future of our children, again: good for you! Raising taxes? Here what W.Buffett and Bill Gates said:
    I’m not a liberal or a conservative, I look at common sense economics and fiscal and monetary policies for all, not only for the wealthy. I follow Ray Dalio and I suggest you read about the cycle behind raising and falling empires. It is far more illuminating than your sensational piece. Also, it is based on history and as we know history repeats…Here is the link:

    We can agree to disagree but your tone and bias was totally disappointing.


    1. Not sure where you are going with this Oliver. I never spoke of climate change once. I merely said this is a coordinated effort to steer things in a certain direction. How did you get into do I care about our children? I absolutely do – because our children, if we keep going down this path, will never be free to make a choice and dream of success. Most will now never own a home – as per the “experts” predictions. And as it relates to raising taxes – you pull up an article from two of the richest men in the world? Oh, the irony. And yes, I follow Ray Dalio also. Common sense, especially when it comes to economics, is that if you borrow more than you make, you go into debt. That is exactly what is happening all around the world. Please don’t tell me debt is a good thing.

      Lastly, next time you think of climate change – there is science that it’s not man-made and there is science that it is. However, what is not up for debate are the resources required to pursue this. Do you know how much mining will take place? Do you know the energy requirements (from oil and gas) that is required to fulfill those dreams? Do you know the amount of holes the world has to dig to acquire those resources? Do you know just how much pollution will be caused as a result? Once you do the research on this, please come back and comment.

  30. It is called leadership; Countries like Sweden, New Zeland had good leaders. We have a moron as a leader, a leader that does not know the meaning of: HUMANITY, SOCIETY,CULTURE. yet, has 0ver 70,000,000 blind followers.

    Also you say increase of taxes. Are you afraid not to take the monies with You when You gone? how much money do your children need to live after you are gone. Biden will only increase taxes on those that make more than $ 400.000.00.

    I find this report extremely BIAS

    1. Thanks Lucho, but you see, I never gave my opinion of politics. You are actually the one that’s being extremely BIAS.

      Is Biden and Trudeau raising taxes? Yup. Did I call them morons? Nope.

      Yes, I speak of taxes. And you are absolutely wrong on Biden only raising taxes on those who make more than 400k. There is such a thing called trickle down. You raise taxes on corporations, they move to other parts of the world – like China. Jobs (and money) will, and have always, shifted to places that have lower taxes. And in all fairness, what’s wrong with someone who took a risk and worked hard to be wealthy? They should be penalized for that? How did you make this comment? From your computer or iPhone? The companies who built them are worth trillions. And you are asking to tax the middle class? Do you only want slaves and kings? Because that’s precisely what is happening.

      If you want fair treatment, and it appears you do, everyone should pay an equal tax rate – except, perhaps, the billionaires. That is fair. Just because you might not have the drive to take a risk and make more money, doesn’t mean everyone has to be like you.

      Lastly, if you want to talk politics, let me ask you this: How did Biden and his family make their tens of millions? Politics. How did Trump? Business.

  31. Ivan — I suggest you research Saez and Zucman’s The Triumph of Injustice or review Bloomberg Businessweek Where The Money Is (May 27 2019) about these two authors. Your statement: ” what’s wrong with someone who is wealthy and took a risk to make that money and worked hard? They should be penalized for that?” is outdated and you are preaching old-school propaganda which is a significant part of the problem for capitalism. Keep this in mind: the wealth is not visible in plain sight — it’s visible in the data.

    1. Thanks again Anthony. However, that is precisely my point: tax the super rich, not the people who have a few million or even those who make over 400k. If you start increasing tax on those people, jobs will be lost as small businesses represent the biggest job creator.

      The book you speak of talks about how billionaires barely pay tax – and that’s what I said in a previous comment: that these type of tax schemes are really only achievable by those who have hundreds of millions. The book is about the ultra-rich, billionaires, not paying taxes.

      Lastly, there is a big difference between free-market capitalism and the capitalism Klaus’ speaks of. In fact, that’s also where people always get it wrong: capitalism isn’t evil – crony capitalism is. Capitalism is merely a market where one can choose to buy or sell based on demand and supply. Isn’t that freedom?

      We’re on the same page here…but let’s not confuse the middle or wealthy middle class with billionaires. Remember, WEF is for world leaders and billionaires to set agendas for the rest of the world. In other words, the billionaires pull the strings and the politicians get wealthy. Precisely my point in the Letter where billionaires and the elite will steal the bankrupt businesses for pennies on the dollar. Look up how Amazon won the diaper business when it first started – you will see my point.

      You ever wonder how a life-long politician like Biden is worth tens of millions? And how his son makes millions, when he was a drug addict? Again, not being political, but feel free to answer those questions.

  32. I appreciate your updates, Ivan. My opinion, fwiw: I just returned to the Atlantic coast (NE FL) from a 4000 mile drive to visit family in Arizona. An excerpt from my email this morning to my sister: “If Trump can’t turn this thing around, I think the “USA” is totally screwed. This may be part of the “global reset” that has been planned for years, and it all comes together with a fake pandemic, assigning nearly all deaths to a non-existent virus, and “testing” millions of people with a fraudulent PCR test (which is actually a manufacturing/concentration process with nearly 95% false positives) just to scare the shit out of them and lock down the country, then “vaccinating” everyone on earth with a potentially toxic (on demand) Mark of the (Bill Gates) Beast. Then intimidate and totally intimidate everyone. Gun sales are up, but ammo started disappearing months ago. If Americans can’t get ammo, it’s a lot cheaper just to throw rocks rather than throw empty pistols. We stopped at 3 more WalMarts (total ~ 8-9) on our trip, and two enormous Bass Pro stores (in LA and in AL), plus other gun shops, and there wasn’t a bullet for sale anywhere. They had a few boxes of lead for reloading shells, but they didn’t have any powder. Shotgun shells were the only thing I saw anywhere (Hint: Buy a shotgun ASAP, and as much ammo as soon as possible. Stick to SLUGS or buckshot or BB shot, or #2 or # 4. Don’t bother with #6 or # 8 fine shot – for birds). This is happening now, and it is NOT GOOD. It was a real eye-opener stopping at sporting goods and gun stores over a 4000-mile drive around the country. Our local WalMarts told me 7 weeks ago that they would have more ammo in “next week” … and then they said “next month” … but today they still don’t have a thing, and maybe never again will. Dumbocrats don’t even have to threaten to confiscate firearms, if they have already eliminated the supply chain for ammo.

    An hour ago, I finished going through several US online ammo suppliers, and on one site, out of > 1000 products of common calibers, bullet weights and forms, and numbers of shells (20 to 1000+), probably 99.9% were out of stock, and they invited me to request an email alert when the desired product will be available. This really scares me. The coup by the CIA has already been accomplished. I just drove 4000+ miles around the US, and I couldn’t find a single bullet for sale anywhere !!!!!!!!!!! We even took a side-trip to Tombstone, Arizona to have lunch at Big Nose Kate’s Saloon, and I stopped at the local “gun and ammo” store in town. He had one box of 44-40 ammo (who the hell wants that?), and when I asked if he had any common pistol or rifle ammo, he said that he had a 50-round box of .22 shorts, but he sold it a couple weeks ago. We are already screwed; it’s time for the New Resistance.

    1. Thanks Dave. While there will be many that think you’re right-wing crazy for saying stock up on ammo and guns, here’s the part that’s truthful: when police are not allowed to help you when a criminal is breaking and entering your house or place of business (just look at Oregon and Cali), whose left to defend you?

      As a parent and husband, I would do anything to protect my family. I am sure most feel the same way.

  33. I don’t why everybody is so confused about the pandemic ? I have researched pandemics and they all have 3 waves and last around 2 years and millions of people can die during that time. Just look at the Spanish Flu millions died and the economy was in the the toilet as a result. In a way it is a natural reset and we will all have to be prepared for the worst.
    I believe another stock market crash is immanent close to the 1930’s over the next 2 years, so prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

  34. One argument I’m hearing is if the getting so many false positives, why are hospital visits and ventilator patients on the rise?

    1. 1. Hospital visits almost always increases during flu season – and more so now than ever before. Why? Because the moment someone catches a cold now, they rush and get a test, which could be positive, and rush to the hospital thinking they’re going to die from COVID.
      2. Ventilators have shown they are more likely to kill than to save a COVID patient. You can read more here:

      I want to be clear also: COVID can be deadly. Just as the flu has been many times – and even just a couple of years ago. We should be careful and stay healthy. We should be much more cognizant when around people with underlying conditions or those over the age of 70. But the solution can’t be worse than the disease.

  35. I think we need to re-think how we live in Canada. Alot of our immigrants live in multi family settings and this gives the entire family stability and strength. Re-structuring our households would be a huge change to many of us but might be the only way to survive this reset like it or not. Time will tell, and thank you for not being cowed into silence for fear of not winning the popular vote. We all need to hear this even if we don’t agree.

  36. You imply that there is a lot of evidence of election fraud that is being ignored. I have not seen or read of any evidence just allegations and the court rulings seem to support that position. What am I missing?

    1. Thanks Fred for your honest question. The court rulings that have been ruled are just a small portion of the lawsuits – many of which will go to the Supreme Court. Right now, there are over 100 signed affidavits from witnesses which include poll watchers and those who worked at the ballot centres. It’s crazy that every media outlet says there is no evidence – affidavits are precisely that, evidence. Furthermore, there are numerous “irregularities” which we cannot call fraud yet (because fraud implies intent). Again, this isn’t support for Trump – I am merely pointing out facts. This is one guy exposing some of the “irregularities”: Yes, he is a bit harsh and comedic but his facts are bang-on based on similar research we have done.

  37. Ivan…you forgot a few things!!!!

    The Great Reset plan – reform everything from government, energy and finance to food, medicine, real estate, policing — even how we interact with our fellow human beings.

    Klaus Schwab (WEF Head) also urges industry leaders and decision makers to “make good use of the pandemic” and “not letting the crisis go to waste”

    – Electronic ID/Bank & Health Records/Social Credit Score – monitor and control the world through digital surveillance. You’ll be tied to it through an electronic ID linked to your bank account and health records, and a social credit ID that will end up dictating every facet of your life (China does social credit score system already)

    – Sustainable Development is Technocracy (ESG) – BLACKROCK is the face behind this new style of investing, but the head of the snake remains at the top (Global Elitists – ie, WEF)

    – Privately owned Assets – Schwab announced the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset Initiative in June 2020, which includes stripping all people of their privately owned assets

    – FOOD – WEF has partnered with the EAT Forum, which will set the political agenda for global food production (the EAT Forum is: wants to transform our global food system by replacing wholesome nutritious foods with genetically modified lab creations) EAT collaborates with imitation meat companies such as Impossible Foods, which was co-funded by Google, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates – EAT is working with UNICEF in 3rd world countries right now – the diet aims to cut the meat and dairy intake of the global population by as much as 90% in some cases – why do you think they put out news/sound bites every few weeks about meat packing & processing plants employees testing positive for covid? Want to scare the lemmings into never eating any form of meat again – pre-planned wide adoption of plant based meat alternatives – keep the Kobe beef for them…scare and deter the masses from eating their food source

    – MONEY – central banks worldwide want to introduce a CB digital currency (CBDC) – it will allow the banks to surveil and control your life

    No person in their right mind would agree to it if aware of the details of the whole plan. So, to roll this out, they had to use psychological manipulation, and fear which are the most effective tools in the toolbox.
    FEAR (environment, COVID-19)
    – demoralization (shaming) – dehumanization (masks) – crisis (casedemic) – normalization (“new normal”)
    BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION (social distancing)
    HEALTH ID’S (health & credit system) (vaccination)
    FINAL OUTCOME – controlled world of smaller numbers of PERFECT people

  38. Hey Ivan

    You are on point.

    Dr Rashid Buttar covered exactly what you mentioned. Some of his videos were censored and taken off youtube because they did not like the content. Others speaking the truth were also taken off. Check him out at He has patients in like 94 countries.

    Check out report ‘ Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development. By the Rockefeller Foundation. This is a trial run we are going through. Well planned. Almost perfect.

    Very interesting times indeed.


  39. Ivan, I really enjoy ready your newsletter.
    There may be something to the idea that governments are taking advantage of the Covid pandemic to forward their socialist agendas, but I really think it’s giving them too much credit to actually say that they have engineered it. They aren’t that competent. I can’t really explain why such a high testing threshold is used, but I basically see it as government covering its own ass for chronically underfunding the healthcare system for so long. Basically, publicly funded heathcare is tuned to underserve the needs of the population by the maximum amount that governments can get away with. It’s how they try to control the costs of a politically designed system that was never sustainable to begin with. Now this rather more serious strain of flu comes along and infects a large percentage of the population. Even though only a small percentage of those actually get sick enough to require hospital treatment, it’s enough to overwhelm a system where hallway treatment was already the norm. Basically I think they’re afraid that nobody will want to be a front line healthcare worker after this. So the rest of us have to endure the lockdowns so that they can save their asses for the next election. Not really much better than your scenario, but I think there is a chance for us to influence the outcome. I will say however that it is troubling to me that mainstream media have completely bought government line. This lends credence to a theory that the US election was ‘stolen’, but I’m not saying I’ve bought into that yet. Again, I don’t think they have the competence to pull it off.

  40. Hi Ivan

    One of your comments was that real estate would bottom in 18-24 months. What forces do you believe will make this happen. Interest rate hikes? The governments would be bankrupting themselves if they allowed this to happen no?
