John McAfee &

DJ J Scrilla

The Corona Theories

Transcript:

 Sasha:

And we’re live. Hello everyone! Welcome to the HODLCast. Today we have Mr. John McAfee with us, and my husband, J Scrilla. John, how you doing?

John:

I’m doing great. Thank you. Everybody’s smiling and happy, and I’m drinking a mint Julep so I have to be happy.

Sasha:

Oh, that sounds good. Now I’ve seen a lot of your tweets. It doesn’t seem like you’re very scared of the Corona virus compared to diarrhea or regular influenza and whatnot. So if it’s not, what do you think? Basically, we’re geared up for world war three here. We’ve stocked up on food and weapons.

John:

All right, here’s the truth. If someone came to me and said, listen, we’re going to remove one of two viruses from the world, the flu or the Corona virus, which would you choose? Get the fucking flu out. Because I have a chance of getting that, and 600,000 people a year die from the flu. And in five months, coronavirus has killed less than 10,000 people. Wake the fuck up, people! I have no fear on it. I can count, and add, and subtract, and multiply. It’s got a flat curve. Don’t listen to the mainstream media.

J:

Why do you think they’re saying it? Why do you think they’re leading us to believe that it’s so dangerous?

John:

Wait a minute. Let me ask you a question. Let’s have a real fucking conversation here and now. Let me ask you a question. Can you think of any reason in the world that anyone in the world might want this to happen? No. I can think of 5 million possibilities, the Chinese, finally, here’s one. Let’s start with the least likely. The Chinese, who are being pushed and bullied by the world, and China, yet is the world power in terms of industry. We should be bowing down to them in all frankness, but no, we’re stupid here in the West because our history of power makes us project that power into the future. Or we will all ways be powerful, right? So that’s the arrogance of the West. No wonder the Chinese think raw fucking barbarians because we are. Now back to the Chinese. They are getting sick of this thing. Someone says, why don’t we just make it believe who is sacrifice? The largest city, not in terms of people. No one dying there. People, less than 10,000 in the world in five months is not a problem, but the Chinese, they’re clever, why don’t we seal of a city? And let’s find a virus that doesn’t move very fast or kill many people and infects some people, I mean people are infected anyway, probably been infected with this for a thousand years. No one’s ever looked forward or tested for it. The symptoms are identical to the flu. So now, this is not very widespread, so let’s use that farmers who called it the corona virus. We will seal off the city, why? Because if we see seal off the city, then no one can go inside to verify these statistics that we’re throwing outside the wall. But keep in mind, say we’re sealing off the city for health reasons. Oh, okay, since you all know it’s an air borne virus, and if I sneeze into a slight breeze, it will carry these droplets in miles. I’m just waiting for the dome to come down. Did one come down? No, no strangers. No one questioned the absence of the dome. Did they? So the Chinese are smart enough to know sealing off that city without the dome is not going to do Jack bad about the spreading. A breeze can blow a sneeze 15, 20, or 30 fucking miles over the wall. And the breeze if you ever seen wind stop because there’s a sign saying, do not pass. No, I haven’t. And yet the Chinese want us to believe that that is the fucking reality. Now that we got the sign right here, you do not pass under penalty of law. I didn’t see a wind come by greeted you, fuck me please. That’s what they think us. But nevertheless, if you look at the statistics, they’re all coming out with a city where no one can verify the fucking truth. No one, nobody. Well, suddenly, what if, how hard would this be? Let’s say the ambassador to the United States. Chinese ambassador begs for a visit with the president. Mr president, I am so sorry. We have been deceiving you, but not for any evil purpose. Because we thought we might be able to stem this horrific disease that’s coming from our country. And the truth is this, no, there just haven’t been 10,000 deaths, there were 4 million people there, only 10,000 remain alive. And this is what’s going to be happening in your country. You need to shut down your borders, and shut down your industry, and stop your travel money coming in, and stop everything that makes you powerful. It’s like, listen, my enemy over there, why don’t we send him a cake that’s poisoned, or it’s the same fucking thing. Well, that’s one. Can you not think of at least 100 others that are different? I can. All I know, I have no clue what’s happening. I don’t have a crystal ball. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. All I know is this virus is not a problem. The problem is the world’s government’s reactions to it. Please, can you not see this?

J:

Do you think it was an excuse so what the market’s crashed up, blaming the governments?

John: That’s a different scenario because that assumes that America had a protagonist. No, you want me to play that one out for you? There are five options for America. Let’s take option one. America, even though it knows China is its enemy, every governor wants more control over their own citizens. Do they not? Every fucking government. I mean, if you had absolute control, you got to stay in your house. Like we were for almost a week locked up in Spain for fuck sake. You can’t go out on your balcony. You walk out on the street, you’re rescued.

Sasha:

They wouldn’t let you on the balcony?

John:

Nothing. No outside. Nobody outside. You might sneeze. Think about it. What if you are on your balcony and you’re sick and you sneeze. You’ve now endangered the 50 square miles. And when you are out, you cannot come within three feet of another person. I got a cost to you yesterday before we left, or the day before. I’m in a supermarket because I was talking quietly with my driver. I’m 74, I’m half deaf, right? I’m going to lean in to hear some things. You don’t want to be rude by speaking loudly in supermarkets, in a fucking quarantine. So I’m leaning in and he’s speaking. And then came in two big fucking security people with mean looking faces and separate us. And for a second I didn’t understand you. Oh, got it. So then I found the answers, noticed others, in metacognition, mixing my German and my Spanish, barely intelligible, and they’re going, Oh fuck, I can’t deal with this thing.

Sasha:

Did they know who you are?

John:

No, they did not know. I would have been arrested on shore. Anyway, so we’ve been living in that thing, people. So we know, and I’ve known this all my life, how severe a dark dungeon fear can make. Because that’s what it’s made. That’s what it made in Spain. Think about it, you can’t invite your friends over. You can’t invite your family. You can’t go visit your friends, you can’t go just your family. Only two reasons to be outside. I am legitimately going to a grocery store and then they will check your origin and the story you said you’re going to. And make sure you have not stray more than three blocks from that straight fucking line. And if so, you’re in trouble. You can’t be in a car with another person. We got stopped a day before that because I have a driver, I’m 74, I’m tired of driving, number one. Number two, I’m too blind to get a license. So I don’t know why that would have anything to do with it. Nevertheless, I try to respect things that people say might be dangerous to others, and have a driver. But man, we were stopped. Fortunately, lives leave by the laws. We were coming back from buying food, not we had strayed from our origin, but we had come a long way. Why? The food is cheaper down here. I’m sorry, but where we’re coming from, whatever that believed anything in crisis. So, I just did my thing. I spoke in Spanish. So now, they’re thinking this is going to take hours. Number two, it’s a fucking tourist and he’s probably not happy. No, they wanted to see the groceries you have in the back seat. What were they? A bottle of rum, really nice rum, a bottle of olive oil, cilantro, basil and mint fresh. That was it. But these were groceries. So it was legal. So what could they do? Yes, that’s life under martial law. And people know that’s happened to me before. I’ve travelled the world, so it’s nothing new. But try to imagine your life being that 24 hours a day.

J:

Are you going back on the boat?

John:

No, absolutely not. I can’t go back to that part of the world, and it’s almost impossible to arrange to get it to where we are. It costs $100,000 to ship it. It doesn’t carry enough fuel to do a transoceanic passage. So anyway, we’ve abandoned the boat. This was after we got out of jail from the Dominican Republic. We went underground, we’ve been running from country to country, right in The Bahamas. Why? No extradition there. So they have to reign some devious thing. That took three months and we were enjoying ourselves. Went to Cuba and the Cuban government called us in, Janice and I. The United States has unofficially, because you don’t official channels requested that we return it to the States and returned from favourites. And said that we are just inclined to do so. But your presence here now will be a big concern and embarrassment too. So we’re giving you 72 hours to leave our country. But they were very polite about it. You know, within 58, it’s about two days to get the boat prepared for a long passage cause we had to be at sea for four or five days. Right? So we left Cuba, we’re at sea for four and a half days. Rough fucking weather. The dogs were sick, everybody was vomiting. It was so fucking horrible. Anyway. Nine people and four big ass dogs, plus a crew on a boat in the storm. And so after that calmed down, we finally pulled in to the Dominican Republic. We were rested before we came in to dock. Their internal security came out there. They were SWAT teams and surrounded the boat, they rested us and said, you have to go back to America.

Sasha:

Yeah, they’re probably just planning to go get a nice hotel, or relax.

John:

Oh fuck yeah, we didn’t need a hotel. The boat’s very nice when it’s not at 90 degrees. But no, just to get quiet, a nice night’s sleep, get everything air conditioned down below again, plugged in to shoreline. Because the generators can’t do everything, especially in a storm, right? You got too much other work to do keeping the boat afloat. So no, we don’t have the boat. We don’t tell anybody where we are.

J:

Are you still running for president?

John:

No, in the state of North Carolina and the libertarian primaries, I came in second. But the winner, no, the Horn Berger? Warn Baker? Back Walker? I don’t know the man. I’ve never met him, he is the number one runner. I got 8.7% and McAfee got 8.2% I call that a win, considering I was stuck in a place where I can’t tell anybody where I am, even that other prey is calling around every different day campaigning and stumping in a different town. Well, fuck me. That’s some kind of win, right?

Sasha:

Well, as a big claim, I haven’t been in Bitcoin for a little while, Jeff too. We have a lot of our assets in it. We thought bitcoin would do well under this kind of crisis, but it has not.

John:

See, you’re looking at the wrong thing. You’re looking at the price of Bitcoin. And has it done well? Here’s what I call doing well with crypto currency. We have everything in DAI, which is pegged to the dollar, right? When I get paid for doing work that comes in. In Monero except for work, otherwise I can burn that one there instantly when someone is to be paid, like sort of a contractor, which is draining me dry always all my life. In any case, you have to get paid in on there or else. I’m sorry, I cannot use you and once you do. So what does it mean? Do well. I live with people and know that there are tens of thousands more of us around the world that no longer touch in any way. The old economy based on field currency. Everything we do, every piece of work that gets paid for everything we buy from houses to cars. You name it. Bulletproof vests, shoes.

J:

What about your music? You listen to Bitcoin music?

John:

I don’t know what that is, I’m sorry. I don’t know much about music.

J:

You’re saying you do everything about bitcoin. Do you have bitcoin music?

John:

I’m certainly not. Other than as if the play thing that people use most cryptocurrency for, which is going to make money off other than that, sorry, I’m not involved in that part. Not interested in that part. And you may do it once you wish in that part and I can give you no advice in that part. I can tell you about coins or that use. You want to hear about those? That’s fine. But I can’t tell you about anything.

J:

No, I was asking, do you listen to music about cryptocurrency?

John:

No. So listen, people with guns chase us around. We don’t have time to listen to any fucking music, except maybe a few minutes a month. And if I had a choice to train Beethoven, Bitcoin music, I’m sorry, we’re a good show music. Please give him the Beethoven, or at least I know what I’m getting at. Shakespeare says, thus we flee from things we know not of, and instead had here to those nightmares that we know.

Sasha:

What do you think of the vaccine idea or the eugenics around? So the conspiracy theory is that bill Gates and the probe right Institute put a patent out on the Corona virus in 2015, and now he’s quit his board of director positions with Microsoft. And he’s going into making a vaccine for the virus.

John:

No, well, I ranked that number 11 in probability. But definitely, number one is the handshake between China and Donald Trump that under the table, serious mother fucking shit going on. They both know there’s no problem. However, both we’re going to use this to lock their fucking countries down. You think is not happening. I just came from Spain, where you can leave your house without permission slip. Is that how you want to live? You’re out and where’s your slip.

Sasha:

So what should we do in America when they start trying to put that kind of a restriction in place? Like us individuals.

John:

Do you think you’re going to be any different than the Spanish? No, you’re going to go to your homes, lock your doors. Why? At first, because you’re going to die. You got side from this horrible bug, this terrible thing. Which in truth, statistically the flu has 100 times greater chance of killing you than the coronavirus separate will. These are the numbers, people. So we know it is an insignificant mother fucking thing. I mean I’ve been going out, I’ve been looking, I’ve been looking the hands handles of shelves, shopping cart in markets just to show my friends. Good God. Are you people crazy or what?

Sasha:

Sure. Lick the toilet in the plane. We got this videotape of yourself, John.

John:

No it’s not. It was a personal thing to show my friends, seriously, people wake up. No, I’ve been licking the bottoms of my shoes when I get home to show people stop, right? Please stop.

Sasha:

What about the rumours that black people can’t get it?

John:

Are you serious? That started with me. I started that one and a U S Congressman called Jack Dorsey on Twitter and demanded they take it down. Twitter actually locked me out for six hours. It’s gone now because I want to keep copies of things. But nothing less, however, what it said was this, Oh, have you people heard that black people cannot possibly get Corona virus, and I believe that we can mobilize the blacks as saviours somehow in fighting this fires. And then I went on, and I know that many of you made gel outfits, yet, every single medical study were black jeans, and Chinese chains are combined. The only thing that ever comes out, it was a car thief. They can’t drive. And so this proofs, so now, I don’t think it was dad who was who in their right mind, Oh, the blacks will save us. They know they took this racist. So I finally apologize openly on Twitter and made a tweet. I’m really sorry. This is my wife. And to the best of my knowledge, and she’s black, and I had a photo of us. How can I possibly be a racist motherfucker? Because I left to choose a black life when I’m going to have to be blind to it. I knew she was black before I met her. I don’t know. People are just crazy. I mean, you’ve got to frame humor today. Such a major frame that just screams out humor, or else the subtlety will get you Whoa. That is not humor. That’s racist. Because anybody who actually believed that to be medical, which was Twitter’s reason for taking it down. It was the best medical advice to the coronavirus. Here’s the thing, you just brought up a point and I really hadn’t seen quite this way before. There are two ways I’m seeing the world. Number one, it’s a threat or an opportunity. We’re number two. It’s just the most humorous thing that God could ever have devised, way over in the humorous thing category. So we got arrested in Dominican Republic, their jails are not to be recommended for those who want jail experience. I would choose Mexican, aint that bad. Only bad if they feed you for the job and everybody’s happy and fit. But not the Dominican Republic. So four days from this thing, are you got some sneaky, I have a lot of jail experience people, so I know how to do this in any case. So the first night and everybody’s pissed except man, so Janice is the only female, but she’s right in the building next to us. There’s no glass in the windows. It’s just rusted iron bars from 14th century. Seriously, It’s like dungeon Ville. However I am. So Coolio, Who’s the engineer on the boat, were all arrested together, and Janice, they pit all the men in one building. I admitted, I understand why she was not laughing all night, but I was, so I’m here. This has got to be some funny athlete and suddenly Coolio takes off his pants.

It’s got Mickey male’s underwear, he’s 30 and he’s a black whack Haitian, tough characters. So I’ve never noticed how you were before. And so the other guys are just laughing up a storm and Coolio was having none of it. And so we were laughing all night. Right. Janice is so pissed when we got out, cause she was not laughing over there. I can understand once he had no one to joke with everybody speaking Spanish. That’s rough. I don’t know how we got off on because you’d asked me a serious question. Yeah, well I didn’t answer it. I’m positive. So just move on. Yeah. Oh good.

Sasha:

So I think I’d asked you anyway, so you think the vaccine coming for it? Or some kind of eugenics conspiracy theory would be ranked around 11? You think the number one conspiracy theory would be that U S and China are doing?

John:

I would give it 90% certainty. And Europe just goes along because Europe goes along with whatever happens in the U S. And this has to be some major thing that even Trump was not aware of because I would like you to go back in history, in time, like three days, four days, maybe a week to where Trump actually tweeted, Oh, I think, listen, this thing is blown out of proportion, which it is, Hey, it’s not going to be a problem. The following day is on-going. It’s like someone can say, Trump, did you not get the memo or watch. This is the party line. Are we clear? We’re locking this country down? Oh no, I didn’t get that memo. This is the reality of life people. Although instead of being, here’s how do you know, presidents get the memo in reality.

Let me give an example, which we all have seen. Second Gulf war. The C I A needs Iraq to be neutralized. In fact, there’s the word now I know people in the C I A very well. They were my first and biggest customer at McAfee. So now, it goes back to 1988. So I have a long and involved history with this person. Now here’s the other work. By the way, to make this more realistic, the C I A has a word for instance, they call them transients as a transient. Who’s got his, who’s controlling him on this thing? Who’s controlling him on that thing? Well, I’ll tell you, someone was shortly controlling him on the Iraq thing, wasn’t it? Because the C I A decides we’re going to bomb them into the Stone Age. And then it got critical. It got seriously critical. And so listen, this is taking too much of my time.

I want them destroyed tomorrow. Make it happen. And that got passed to DC where the higher ups in the CIA, you answered tomorrow. All right, Jed, you went to the president. This is what was said. Mr president, please, I’m sorry to bother you on you busy schedule, about a matter of the utmost versions you have just occurred, sir, please could you sit down and sir, what I’m about to tell you is the most horrific thing that could possibly happen to America. Iraq has nuclear weapons, Mr President, and missile capabilities capable of delivering those missiles to our closest ally, and Mr President. We believe that an attack is imminent. Our closest ally, England, that London, the entire city would be separated from the face of the earth. Mr president. Now we are out here to advise you what’s the presence. We’re not here to pull your strings network and we’re certainly not here to give you a memo.

That part they did not say. It’s true that in myself, they ended with, we’re not here, sir, to try us nearly to inform you of the truth, which I had no choice. Four rounds later, we started the bombing of the country that we bond into the stone age where the nuclear weapons, no. Everybody knew it except the president and Congress. The American people knew it. Certainly the Europeans know them, everybody in the middle East, they are nuclear weapons. Have you lost your mind? That was the truth. Now that’s how the C I A operates. Except they very seldom go to the extreme. You’re telling lies. They tell the absolute truth. Which part of it they choose? Yes. All right. So let’s say, okay, we’ve got to stay at home while one of them is yours. So what is your name, and your neighbour’s wife wants to hit on you and wants you to dump your wife.

So once a week, and the husband doesn’t know this because he doesn’t get involved in the home part of life. That’s his wife. That’s his Queen’s domain. And she’s been having something done in the basement. God knows what, maybe a shed built for him. Who knows once a week on a Wednesday, this guy gets out because, Oh, your wife is there. And so now you leave out everything. Your wife is having an affair. No. That’s the proof. As Fred wants him to see it. What do you mean you’re upset? So right off the bat, you’re not looking at it as if it’s an affair. Now I’m all I’m saying is there’s this guy, I don’t want much about it.

Every Thursday, he comes over and spends a couple hours, it gets us jointly. Now I told the absolute truth. Did I not? The truth was accept the fact that I believed. So please God. Do you understand how easy it is? Literally people with the truth. This is what the CIA is good. So in any case that we bombed a rock, that was a lie cause no one could figure out the truth. It would make it happen in four hours. Then lie, tell them they got nuclear bombs. Who knows this? Bomb them into oblivion. So that’s one theory.

J:

What about aliens? The theory that aliens, they’re locking down so the aliens can invade.

John:

I don’t know where it is, but it’s down in the name of 134 thousands, it’s not very high on the list. Not that is not on the list. When I say the list, is that possible? Is it probable? I’m a statistician. I like numbers.

J: Can you run through the one through five top things you think?

John:

I really can’t because we’re running out of time, ladies and gentlemen.

Sasha:

So if they want to distribute, there’s some bill coming that we’re going to get UBI basically $2,000 per adult, $1,000 per kid through this time. Do you think they’ll start a fed coin to distribute it or how would they distribute the money in today’s infrastructure?

John:

I have no clue. But anyway, thank you for having me on.

Sasha:

Thank you, John. And we really enjoyed talking with you.
