"Absolutely Crazy" - Sub-Zero Freezer Demand Erupts Ahead Of Vaccine Distribution 

"Absolutely Crazy" - Sub-Zero Freezer Demand Erupts Ahead Of Vaccine Distribution 

Tyler Durden

Demand for sub-zero freezers has erupted over the last month following encouraging COVID-19 vaccine developments from Pfizer and the German firm BioNTech.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has to be stored at -70 degrees Celsius - standard commercial freezers don't get that cold - forcing many hospital systems across the country to panic buy these special freezers from refrigerator-maker So-Low Environmental Equipment. 


Dean Hensler, vice president of So-Low, told CNBC's Squawk on the Street that "right now we are out of everything." 

Hensler said the anticipation of coronavirus vaccine distribution had unleashed a massive buying wave of ultra-cold freezers by hospital systems that plan on storing then distributing the vaccine. 

Last week, Pfizer-BioNTech filed for emergency use authorization with the FDA for approval - a meeting had been scheduled for Dec. 8, 9, and 10 - Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said the first doses of the vaccine could be shipped out within hours of the EUA approval.

Reuters quoted President Trump on Thursday evening, saying the vaccine could begin delivery as soon as next week. 

The largest hurdle for a nationwide vaccine rollout is the expanding need for cold storage. 

"We had heard that the Pfizer was going to have to be stored at minus 70. We took it upon ourselves to say, 'Hey, listen, we've got to do something about this,'" Hensler said. 

"Our phones started ringing off the hook the day it ... got out to the public. That inventory we had built was gone like in three weeks, so now we're building everything per order," he said. "We're running about six to eight weeks on delivery right now. It's been crazy. It's been crazy."

"We're going to work Friday after Thanksgiving," Hensler said. The way the company sees it, he said, "The quicker we can get freezers out, the more people can get vaccinated, and we can get back to the old normal, rather than this new normal."

Earlier this week, UPS announced it would produce thousands of pounds of dry ice per day and provide cold storage facilities and transportation for COVID-19 vaccines. 

"Dark Winter" Was A CSIS Scenario Code-Name Covering Biological Weapon Use Against America

"Dark Winter" Was A CSIS Scenario Code-Name Covering Biological Weapon Use Against America

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

Could it be possible that the phrase “dark winter”  has some sort of deeper meaning that most of us are not meant to understand?  We have heard that phrase over and over again in recent weeks, and usually it has been used in discussions regarding the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.  But it also turns out that “Dark Winter” was also a code name for a high level simulation that was conducted back in 2001.  That simulation envisioned a scenario in which a widespread smallpox attack was unleashed inside the United States.  As you will see below, the simulation was “designed to spiral out of control”, and the hypothetical consequences were absolutely disastrous.


The reason why this is a concern is because so many of these “simulations” and “exercises” end up mirroring real life events that happen at a later date.

For example, most of you have probably heard about Event 201 by now.  On October 18th, 2019 a group of prominent individuals gathered in New York City to simulate what would happen during a worldwide coronavirus pandemic…

Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.

Of course COVID-19 started spreading in China just a few weeks later.

We have seen this same pattern happen so many times, and now we are being told over and over again that a “dark winter” is ahead.

For example, Joe Biden specifically warned us about a “dark winter” during the final presidential debate in October…

Joe Biden warned at Thursday night’s presidential debate that the U.S. was “about to go into a dark winter,” echoing the concerns of public health experts who caution about increased daily Covid-19 case counts converging with the annual flu season.

“We’re about to go into a dark winter. A dark winter,” Biden said. “And he has no clear plan, and there’s no prospect that there’s going to be a vaccine available for the majority of the American people before the middle of next year.”

It is interesting to note that he repeated the phrase twice.

It is almost as if he was determined to make sure that he said it correctly.

And then he started using the phrase over and over again on the campaign trail and he kept using it even after the voting was over.

For example, here is an instance where he used the phrase on the Monday after the election…

Joe Biden on Monday warned that a “very dark winter” is approaching as the U.S. coronavirus case count nears 10 million.

“There is a need for bold action to fight this pandemic,” Biden said in Delaware. “We’re still facing a very dark winter.”

I never thought too much about his use of that phrase, but could it be possible that it is actually some sort of a code word or signal?

We do know that it was a code word for a high level exercise that was held in 2001.  The following comes from Wikipedia…

Operation Dark Winter was the code name for a senior-level bio-terrorist attack simulation conducted on June 22–23, 2001.[1][2][3] It was designed to carry out a mock version of a covert and widespread smallpox attack on the United States. Tara O’Toole and Thomas Inglesby of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (CCBS) / Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and Randy Larsen and Mark DeMier of Analytic Services were the principal designers, authors, and controllers of the Dark Winter project.

It is interesting to note that smallpox is a highly infectious disease that involves sores appearing on the skin.

For those that have read my latest book, you already understand why that detail is so important to me.

And as I already mentioned above, this exercise was specifically designed “to spiral out of control”…

Dark Winter’s simulated scenario involved an initial localized smallpox attack on Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with additional smallpox attack cases in Georgia and Pennsylvania. The simulation was then designed to spiral out of control. This would create a contingency in which the National Security Council struggles to determine both the origin of the attack as well as deal with containing the spreading virus. By not being able to keep pace with the disease’s rate of spread, a new catastrophic contingency emerges in which massive civilian casualties would overwhelm America’s emergency response capabilities.

Could it be possible that Biden and others are using the phrase “dark winter” to signal that something is about to spiral out of control?

I don’t know.  I am just asking the question.

In Operation Dark Winter, the spread of smallpox also resulted in a “massive loss of civilian life”…

The disastrous contingencies that would result in the massive loss of civilian life were used to exploit the weaknesses of the U.S. health care infrastructure and its inability to handle such a threat. The contingencies were also meant to address the widespread panic that would emerge and which would result in mass social breakdown and mob violence. Exploits would also include the many difficulties that the media would face when providing American citizens with the necessary information regarding safety procedures. Discussing the outcome of Dark Winter, Bryan Walsh noted “The timing–just a few months before the 9/11 attack–was eerily prescient, as if the organizers had foreseen how the threat of terrorism, including bioterrorism, would come to consume the U.S. government and public in the years to come.”[4]

So let me try to summarize what we have learned.

Operation Dark Winter envisioned a scenario in which a highly infectious disease that causes sores on the skin spirals out of control and causes a “massive loss of civilian life”.

And suddenly Joe Biden and other elitists have begun repeating this phrase over and over again as we head into 2021.

Reality is often stranger than fiction, and the table has been set for some really, really strange things to happen.

"High Degree Of Confidence": Deep-Dive Data Analyst Says More Illegal Votes In AZ Than Biden Margin Of Victory

"High Degree Of Confidence": Deep-Dive Data Analyst Says More Illegal Votes In AZ Than Biden Margin Of Victory

Pro-Trump statistician Matt Braynard - whom the FBI just asked to share his findings concerning his data-driven investigation into illegal and fraudulent voting in the November election - says he's confident that there were more illegally-cast ballots in Arizona than Joe Biden's current margin of victory.

"I have a high degree of confidence that the number of ballots that were cast that should not have been cast, illegal ballots, surpasses the margin of victory as it stands right now," said Braynard said at a public hearing on election issues in Arizona.


Braynard, a former Trump data strategist who runs the Voter Integrity Project, made headlines after raising money to purchase voting information for a 'deep-dive' analysis looking for fraudulent activity. Earlier in the hearing, he said that he and his team called Arizona residents who had never voted before, yet voted in this election. One of them is a felon who can't legally vote.

Other voters say they were issued mail-in ballots but did not request them.

Braynard says 'no one' can be confident of the vote count until questions he's raised over voting integrity have been answered.

Following Braynard's comments, data expert Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai said that the only way for Biden to have caught up with Trump's lead in Arizona following election day is if votes came in a 130% Biden and -30% for Trump.

Switching gears to voting machines - Col. Phil Waldron (Ret.), a cybersecurity expert, testified that his team warned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that voting machines are vulnerable to hackers and manipulation.

"When I started working on this project in August, I called them up and said, you guys have got to come out and look at it. They did. They spent an initial three hours going through this data. At the end of that, one of them said, ‘I think I need to go outside and throw up," said Waldron, speaking of Dominion Votings Systems machines.

DHS employees followed up multiple times, traveling to Dallas to obtain over 600 gigabytes of data from another team working with Waldron. Waldron’s team gave them another over 200 gigabytes and they analyzed that.

“After they analyzed, there was a scan, a passive scan done. They conducted a limited scan and determined that there were vulnerabilities. They held numerous meetings,” Waldron said.

Asked why nothing seemed to be done before the election to fix the vulnerabilities, Waldron said he believed it was either incompetence or a lack of commitment to doing something, at the senior leader level.

Woldron also says he's seen traffic going from Dominion voting machines to Frankfurt, Germany (where you may recall, a trove of documents released by WikiLeaks (Vault7) claimed that the US Consulate is a 'covert CIA hacker base):

The implications are enormously vague once an understanding of what is implied is actually used in the present tense of to imply. But then it's really imp1y, and there's a big difference between imply and imp1y, though few may observe it.
