As many of my readers know, In April 2020, I diverted from writing a major book on 9/11 to compose a long blog post on the COVID-19 crisis. September 11, 2001, remains a watershed event that redirected American foreign policy onto a deadly course of Middle East Wars that cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars, and domestically brought then-unprecedented intrusions on civil liberties in the name of security.
However, in 2020 the international response to COVID-19 was clearly superseding 9/11 in urgency. It was a systemic event threatening to bring down the world’s economies, and fast-track a global Orwellian police state, which we in alternative media had long warned about—complete with digital ID, cashless society, universal vaccination, and a surveillance state with strict limits on individuals’ ability to travel, work, and buy or sell. It was a cataclysmic shift of Biblical proportions.
Why publish a paperback? For weeks, as the COVID situation developed, I continued to update my blog post, placing the amendments in italics with dates. However, this system soon became unwieldy, and the sheer size of the post too intimidating to invite online reading. A point was reached where a book (which has turned out to be over 200 pages) was clearly needed.
In an era of draconian Internet censorship, a book also presents an opportunity to preserve, in hard copy, information that is increasingly at risk for being digitally flushed down what George Orwell called “memory holes” in his futuristic book 1984. In particular, I wanted to create a volume that would give readers access to data that has been systematically deleted by YouTube and made nearly impossible to find on major search engines, making the phrase “do your own research” less and less achievable.
I have striven to make the book something one can share with “blue-pilled” friends and family members. With nearly 300 endnotes, everything is sourced, quoting numerous scholars from around the world—virologists, epidemiologists, immunologists, pathologists, microbiologists, infectious disease specialists, including Nobel Prize winners, as well as front-line ER physicians and family practice MDs. Although, necessarily, I often refer to alternative media journalists, I also frequently draw on mainstream sources including the CDC.
To simplify reading, I have divided the book into five sections totaling 27 chapters—enough chapters to (hopefully) cover each topic relevant to COVID-19, while also keeping chapters short enough so that reading is not discouraged. Here is the table of contents:
PART ONE: THE LOCKDOWN
1. The Economic and Health Impact of the Lockdown

I have added an index to the book to make locating specific content easier.
Are there disadvantages to a paperback over a blog post? Sure. One cannot click-and-play a video in a paperback! However, in the book I have taken pains to provide written transcripts of video content, selecting excerpts with the greatest relevance and interest.

UPDATE 10-15-20. After selling more than 3,500 copies for Amazon since publication on August 20, and receiving 50 customer ratings (92% five-star, 8% four-star) Amazon has banned COVID-19 and the Agendas to Come, Red-Pilled for unspecified “content violations.” PURCHASING INFORMATION: Individual paperback orders can be placed at Power of Prophecy https://www.texemarrs.com/; best to call them during normal business hours, weekdays 8-5 Central Time, 800-234-9673. The book is also now stocked by American Free Press 1-888-699-6397 or at this sales link. As Amazon had been the distributor, their ban temporarily cut the book off from mainstream bookstores, but I have now contracted with a distributor who has gotten it back in bookstores, including Barnes & Noble, Booksamillion, Powell’s Books, and other retailers. For people in the continental U.S. who would like the book in bulk for broad distribution to friends, family and public officials, I offer it myself in bulk quantities (at discount rates). INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, please note that the paperback is now listed by the UK-based Book Depository, which offers free shipping internationally. Canadians may buy the book directly from Indigo at this link.
ALSO, SINCE AMAZON’S CENSORSHIP HAS MADE A KINDLE E-BOOK IMPOSSIBLE, I AM MAKING FREE PDF, MOBI AND EPUB VERSIONS OF THE BOOK AVAILABLE. Click here for details.
