U.S government officials and roleplayers from multiple organizations and agencies conducted a live bioterrorism exercise dubbed DARK WINTER at Andrews Air Force Base on June 22-23, 2001. Exercise participants played out a fictional biowarfare event, tasking National Security Council members to coordinate a smallpox crisis response.
Exercise participants were allowed to respond to events any way they deemed necessary. Adding realism, exercise administrators showed fictional breaking news clips to cooperators making decisions, allowing officials to collect data.
The “final script” for the 2001 DARK WINTER Exercise gives an initial geopolitical context for the scenario, which mentions tensions between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Interestingly enough, in the 2021 COVID-19 lockdown era, tensions between Taiwan and China are at an all-time high. The “final script” is beginning to match what is currently occurring in the U.S. and worldwide.
Looking for more similarities between COVID and the smallpox script, page 5 asks the make-believe council, “what should the American people be told?” This question comes as part of the roleplay given to the participants representing the President, the National Security Adviser, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency director. Right off the bat, the government’s ill intentions show in the exercise text.
Mirroring the rhetoric we’ve seen on the news regarding the current pandemic, the final script offers “governor’s remarks,” echoing what we hear today. In the 2001 DARK WINTER scenario, “Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating” announced terrorists had used a smallpox weapon to attack the state, successfully overwhelming hospital emergency rooms in Oklahoma City. Making matters worse, hospitals were short-staffed after workers feared they too would acquire the disease. Where have we heard this before? Does it not sound all too familiar?
Of course, in response to the fictional outbreak, the Defense Department and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ordered a 72-hour rapid vaccination program. At the same time, the Food and Drug Administration opened up restrictions on vaccine production, allowing for more doses to be fast-tracked. It was again matching similar provisions for COVID-19 under the guise of the “invisible enemy,” a term coined by former President Donald J. Trump.
Jumping forward to pages 24-30 of the DARK WINTER exercise, we get into the meat of the story, which no one in their right mind can deny is outright shocking. The similarities between the 2001 roleplay and the COVID-19 era are uncanny–dubious at best and chilling.
Page 24 paints the grim picture that thousands of ill or anxious persons around the country sought care, yet nurses and doctors were exhausted, and many medical workers failed to show up in fear of catching the contagion.
“Most hospitals report grossly inadequate supplies and insufficient isolation rooms to care for patients with smallpox,” text from the exercise states. “Some hospitals in Pennsylvania reportedly face imminent bankruptcy, and possible closure as the need to care for floods of anxious patients interrupts normal revenue streams.”
Again, this matches up with what the news is reporting this week, claiming hospitals are “on the brink” of failure. Right now, the healthcare workforce is struggling to keep up with demand after being short-staffed. But don’t fear, New York Governor Kathy Hochul says she plans on replacing hospital workers unwilling to take the magic potion with vaccinated members of the Army National Guard.
“Gov. Kathy Hochul said this weekend she was prepared to call in medically trained National Guard members and retirees, or vaccinated workers from outside the state, to fill any gaps,” reports Fortune. “The governor has held firm on the mandate in the face of pleas to delay it and multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.”
“The deadline for hospital and nursing home workers in New York state to be vaccinated against COVID-19 arrived Monday with the prospect of severe staff shortages fueled by workers getting suspended or fired for refusing to be inoculated,” the agency reports.
Another critical aspect of our current reality related to the final script is that officials have halted travel to and from many countries unless the traveler can show proof of vaccination or up-to-date negative COVID test results. This happens in the script and is happening in real life. To boot, one well-crafted section in the roleplay accounts for criticism of the government’s response to the smallpox outbreak, much like how the American people have criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci over the government’s COVID response. There are too many coincidences.
Adding another element to the side-by-side comparison between the 2001 DARK WINTER final script and the previous and current administration’s response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we see yet more connections. Oklahoma Gov. Keating closed all schools, colleges, sporting events, and other public gatherings in the roleplay, no longer offering the general public their god-given right to assemble. The governor’s office also mulled closing all stores.
“Merchants throughout the state have petitioned the governor’s office to keep shops open, citing the importance of the holiday season for business,” text from the exercise says. “Already shoppers are sparse, with many avoiding places where there are crowds. Malls across the country are nearly deserted.”
Does this not once again seem familiar? And this–the DARK WINTER final script fictional headline reads, “Food Shortages in Some Cities; Many Restaurants Close.”
“Due to slowdowns in transportation and reluctance of drivers to make deliveries to cities with smallpox cases, some cities are beginning to experience shortages of milk, bread, and other staples,” according to the exercise paperwork. “Panic buying has begun to occur in parts of Philadelphia.”
Additionally, the dialogue portrays DoD reluctance to augment civilian healthcare systems with military personnel and supplies. However, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul claims otherwise in real life and has authorized National Guard members to replace state healthcare workers who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine, as previously mentioned.
Page 27 of the play-by-play script reveals a “memo delivered to the Attorney General” and “emergency legal authorities” that mentions the Stafford Act. Keep in mind, former President Donald Trump enacted the Stafford Act on March 13, 2020, when he declared a national emergency with the help of all 50 states’ governors. The script is unfolding some 20 years after its authoring.
“In accordance with this determination, the Federal Emergency Management Agency may provide, as appropriate, assistance pursuant to section 502 and 503 of the Stafford Act for emergency protective measures not authorized under other Federal statutes,” wrote President Trump in the March 13 letter. “Administrator Gaynor shall coordinate and direct other Federal agencies in providing needed assistance under the Stafford Act, subject to the Department of Health and Human Services’ role as the lead Federal agency for the Federal Government’s response to COVID-19.”
“In order to meet the challenges caused by this emergency pandemic, I have encouraged all State and local governments to activate their Emergency Operations Centers and to review their emergency preparedness plans,” he wrote. “In the meantime, I expect FEMA to continue to review all ways in which it can provide assistance to States consistent with the authorities provided to it by this letter and by statute.”
The DARK WINTER final script mentions “the use of federal troops for law enforcement purposes” in a manner that would circumvent the Posse Comitatus Act. While the paperwork says the government may not use the Army and Air Force for law enforcement, it also extends the prohibition to the Navy and Marines. This means that officials can order National Guard troops to enforce laws, but not the military. However, according to the plan, officials will mobilize federal troops if the President invokes the Insurrection Act, which some online conspiracy theorists speculate was already secretly summoned following January 6, 2021, capitol insurrection.
The scenario admits that the Department of Health and Human Services has the authority to respond to health crises across state lines. As the script simulates, the “Federal Quarantine Law” adds another layer, technically violating Americans’ civil liberties. Giving authorities the power to quarantine patients, forcibly draw blood or inoculate patients, and dispose of bodies in ways controversial to religious dogmas.
Drawing parallels between the 2001 DARK WINTER final script and today’s COVID-19 pandemic, we can easily see the play-by-play unfold. The world’s a stage, and you are watching the most incredible show on earth. The only thing left for world governments is fully ushering in the New World Order by engaging in a martial rule. They have already restricted our movements, but they urn for total control. They wish to control every aspect of our lives. The only thing they need now to be in complete control is a new Pearl Harbor, as the globalists mention in their very own Project for a New American Century whitepapers. A terror attack or a major natural disaster such as an asteroid impact or mega-tsunami would give them exactly what they want. Make no mistake; such an incident might be on the schedule.
President Joe Biden has referred to a “dark winter” on at least three occasions, adding suspicion.
