Watch what? Remember.....your last link made fun of ex-Qanon followers like yourself, and you didn't know......because you didn't watch it yourself.

The two minutes starting at 3:33 are about Covid. It shows how so many states announced 33 new Covid cases. Its 33 this, 33 that....Bill Gates predicted 33,941,33 cases at one point..and it goes on.

33 is one of their pet numbers, btw.

One state reported that 33 new cases brought their total up to 99. Amazing coincidences!!

Start watching at 3:33.....Right, 3:33, they apparently have a sense of humor. This video might be put on the youtube naughty list.


It also has some historical points

First of all, thank you for using your own words. Second... well, this sounds like it's little more than GIGO. If you're claiming that any state is claiming 99 cases, for example...

Sounds like it's not quite numerology. Rather, that "33" just happens to be a goto number for the secret communist subverters.

Given that he's citing a youtube video called "Communist Subversion | A Plan For Total World-Wide Control | Part 1," it would be wrong to attribute the original claim to Bubba. There are plenty of valid things to poke at, really, so there's really no excuse for lines like that.

No. Its not about numerology. 33 is one of their pet numbers.


You're not the first to make this mistake. Its a common mistake in certain cultures.

19.5 is another of their pet numbers. It is actually 19.478. It comes from a part of their somewhat secret pet geometry.

Look it up if you're interested in learning something new.

They will display their numbers as sort of a wink, similar to their secret handshakes. 33 shows up far more often than it would otherwise.

"NATO will transfer 33 tanks to Greece's army"

"NASA plans 33 million dollar mission to Mars"
(both items were actual news headlines, and there are endless examples passed around in some circles. It's become a joke.)

33 and 19.5 have appeared in so many NASA instances its ridiculous.

7:30 PM is 19.5 hours. They throw that one in too.

There was an episode of West Wing where they inserted 33 and 19.5 everywhere they could, after Aaron Sorkin had been informed about this stuff.

A bird would tap on a window in sets of threes, at 730PM each day.
Martin Sheen and the others all were tapping their pencils on their desks in sets of threes. There were many other instances in that episode.

There were websites listing appearances of the pet numbers, across the past 100 years or so. It's a secret society thing.

So when you see in that video so many states incorporating 33 into their Covid number reports, its them either signalling their cooperation, or winking at each other. The newscasters are probably clueless, just reading what they are handed.

The 33 cases of Covid items appear briefly in the beginning. I'm about halfway through the video. Its a good one, as some of the newer ones tend to get better as we learn more. I imagine they will tie in the Covid scam towards the end of the video.

This explains why you argue here and not on the COVIID-19 thread in the science section.

Who is "They"?

Because secret conspiracies have to provide clues to their existence. It’s the law.

Funny thing is that all of this is in plain sight.

The video mentions the academician Carrol Quigley (Tragedy and Hope).

At the 1992 DNC convention, Slick Willie signaled his New world Order allegiance by praising Quigley, who chronicled (and admired) the development of the New World Order crowd. Its all on the record.

No, you just saw what you wanted to see and made up a silly little fairy story around it. Or, someone made up a silly little fairy story and you bought into it.

It's a projection. Online neo-nazis love to sprinkle their significant numbers on messages that they post, so of course they think that everyone else is doing that too.

For example, if you see a western guy end his post with '88' you can be quite certain that he is a neo-nazi, as '88' means 'Heil Hitler' in neo-nazise.

I once saw an online WWII memorabilia shop advertise a copy of Hitlerjugend songbook for 88.88 euros on multiple sales platforms while their all other prices were in full euros. That price was an advertisement for the nazi crowd: "come buy from us and support your fellow nazis".

yeah, you are right.

but that only works one way: unobtrusively signaling that you are playing for the same team when you are the underdog fighting against Big Brother.

Big Brother knows perfectly well who is and who isn't working for it - no need to wear a 6MWE T-shirt.

88? Is this some kind of reference to the WW2 era German 88mm AT/flak gun?

H is the 8th letter of the alphabet, hence "88" = "HH", shorthand for "Heil Hitler".

Oh okay, it just wouldn't have surprised me if they had a fetish for one of the better pieces of Nazi kit.

But QAnon made the gross error of making a bold, specific prediction that would be seen to be gloriously, awesomely wrong when it failed to come to pass.

QAnon let you down, and worse, made you look like a fool even to yourself. So now you're averting your eyes from its smoking wreckage and are casting about for a new cult of secret knowledge that will give you that smug feeling of intellectual superiority that you used to get from "knowing" that Trump had a secret plan to stay in office and root out all the Satanist, cannibalistic, pedophile A-list actors. But be sure to learn your lesson about championing any prophecies this new cult advances. It's already claimed that the virus would magically disappear after November 4th, so if they start pooping themselves into a corner again, be sure to stay within hopping distance of the exit.

Sounds like you had a brush with reality, got spooked, and ran away. It happens a lot.

Tell that to the numbers

A 1.5 minute video history of the math (odds analysis) around the consensual results of 152 HCQ studies, to date.

Do you not know HCQ is proven safe.... taken weekly for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis, and taken weekly for preventing malaria in the tropics, where it is dispensed without a doctors prescription because it is common and safe ?

By now it is probably thousands of doctors agreeing it should be made available. Over a thousand are in America's Frontline Doctors.

Of course there's every possibility that he indeed believes the dangerous, debunked, cement-headed CT chum he uses for bait.

So is water. However neither water or HCQ cure Covid 19.

It is clear you don't understand basic scientific concepts.
