Before delving into the panic over Omicron (AH-muh-krahn / OH-muh-krahn) and a few details about its gene sequence (aka B.1.1.529), readers may want to review my previous pandemic missives in “The Great Pivot – Disregard of Informed Consent and Echoes of Nuremberg Part 2” from Jul. 31 (Twitter thread), and “The Jabs Do Not Make You Free” from Sep. 8.
Plebes from the investor class and automated robbin-da-hood trading platforms caught wind of an Omicron panic while recovering from Thanksgiving indigestion at sunrise on Black Friday. If you were paying attention, hints of trouble brewing were reported in Dubai about the Omicron genome, and the foreign mainstream press and U.S. financial rags printed stories on Thanksgiving about a new variant with an extremely high number of mutations.
The Dow futures plunged 1,100 points before New York opened for retail traders on Friday. Those who tried to catch falling knives all day long in the stock market got whacked. Gold spiked to a high of $1,815, but closed at $1,792 on profit taking and for covering margin calls in other asset classes. Here is a brief summation of Friday’s 1 p.m. EST holiday close:
Dow tumbles 900 points for worst day of year on fears of new Covid variant, S&P 500 drops 2%… “U.S. stocks dropped sharply on Friday as a new Covid variant triggered a global shift away from risk assets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 905.04 points, or 2.53%, for its worst day of the year, closing at 34,899.34. The S&P 500 lost 2.27% to close at 4,594.62, while the Nasdaq Composite slipped 2.23% to finish at 15,491.66. The Dow was down more than 1,000 points at session lows. Bond prices rose and yields tumbled amid a flight to safety. The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note fell 15 basis points to 1.49%. This was a sharp reversal, as yields jumped earlier in the week to above 1.68% (bond yields move inversely to prices). Asia markets were hit hard in Friday trade, with Japan’s Nikkei 225 and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index both falling more than 2%. Germany’s Dax index slid more than 4%. Bitcoin fell 8%. The Cboe Volatility Index, often referred to as Wall Street’s “fear gauge,” rose to 28, its highest level in two months. Oil prices also tumbled, with U.S. crude futures down 12% and breaking below $70 per barrel.” – CNBC, Nov. 26

Consider this excerpt from my Jul. 31 article:
“Dr. Peter Navarro interviewed Dr. Robert Malone today and war-gamed the party line pushed by government officials and mainstream media about the pandemic’s evolution and potential consequences of intervention by jabbing an experimental gene therapy into billions of arms under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and not FDA approved application. Navarro said ‘the authoritarianism does not match up with the science’ and Malone coined recent revelations as ‘The Great Pivot.’ That deep dive interview is posted near the end of this article in its entirety, along with one damning quote among the many… The most important takeaway, IMHO, was justified concerns about Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE risks) spurring vaccine-resistant mutants (i.e., breakthrough cases, immune escape) in the middle of a hot coronavirus outbreak, as you ‘cannot vaccinate your way out of a pandemic’… During the winter and spring of 2020, I often quoted virologist Dr. Henry Niman while he educated virus gormandizers that tuned to alternative media radio when COVID was ripping through China and Italy (D614G mutation). One of his concerns was virus recombination because the viral reservoir was growing exponentially as it seeded the entire planet. I reiterated his information in numerous articles and interviews that began with my first pandemic-related piece on Jan. 21, 2020.”
There is a communication issue surrounding Omicron that’s short of answers to a lot of questions that originate from months of misinformation, censorship, lack of informed consent, and reptilian-like fear. Knowledge about this pandemic, the virus, its source, virulence, and future are constantly evolving and delivers new insights along the way, thus clarifying the dirty details to those who improvise, adapt, and overcome. Let’s take a jab at sorting out what we do know and don’t know as of this afternoon about Omicron.
Omicron’s gene sequence can be tracked in real time at GSAID, which is a genome database populated by independent sources from around the world. Omicron is a brand-new lineage with a phylogeny that branched off the D614G mutation that originated in Italy during the winter of 2020 via the initial Wuhan strain. Omicron does not appear to be a continuation of Alpha, Beta, Delta etc. As of today, there are 127 genomes collected.

Infections vs. S-gene Dropout (mutation) as of Nov. 26, 2021
Thus, the media produces the following:
- Botswana variant with ‘horrific’ mutations could be ‘worse than Delta’ – DailyMail
- Omicron doubles the mutations of Delta, Italian lab image shows – SCMP
- South African doctor says Omicron symptoms are ‘unusual but mild’ – Telegraph
- Are We Overreacting to Omicron? – Brownstown Institute
- COVID variant spreads to more countries as world on alert – AP
- Pfizer vaccine ‘ready in 100 days’ if Omicron is resistant – Business Insider
- UK, Germany, and Italy detect Omicron, Israel closes borders – Reuters
- World Medical Association boss compares Omicron with Ebola – News.AM
- Belgian Prime Minister Says New Variant Heralds Arrival of ‘COVID-21’ – Summit
- UK announces new restrictions on travel and face masks – Telegraph
- Omicron variant detected in more countries, scientists race for answers – Reuters
- ‘It’s Coming’: NY Declares State of Emergency Ahead of Omicron – NBC
In summary, Omicron is a freakish mutant, the genome points to higher transmissibility than Delta, and any clarity on how virulent or lethal it is will not be known for several weeks because that is the nature of nature. In the meantime, evidence is growing from officialdom that confirms many months of adverse reactions and death due to experimental jabs, professional and youth athletes are dropping dead on live television, the patent history on SARS and the jab has been traced back to the late 90s, and citizens of the world are revolting over lockdowns and coercive inoculation tactics by their government and media.
