COVID-19 And What the Data Tells Us

The Punchline: We got it wrong and now we’re largely tracking it wrong…

Did you know the “new cases” in daily reports are actually “old infections newly reported”??? Most of what is reported is old news and not indicative of what is happening or how we are trending.

We must look at “Date of Onset” to do ACCURATE trend analysis, but the CDC stopped reporting onset data in April.

Using our own Data from the CDC, we can see that while 45,000 cases were reported on March 23, in reality we already had 140,000 positive tests that had yet to be reported (date of onset).

And now that we know testing only captured 5–10% of actual infections, based on multiple studies, it appears at least several million (yes Million) were already infected by March 23rd, which were never tested.

The CDC is also now combining PCR & Antibody tests, so the “new cases” could be some of the millions of cases from 4 months ago. NPR called them out on it.

Per Nate Silver, a world-renowned Statistician, the average person might as well ignore the cases being reported, it’s apples and oranges.

We are suffering from data illiteracy in this country — from the Institutions capturing it (like the CDC) to the Politicians making decisions from it, to the Media reporting on it, all the way down to the Public consuming it.

Think of it this way, the CDC now believes (as do I) that ~10% of the U.S. has already been infected (i.e. 32M). So if we tested everyone with antibody tests, we’d have ~30 million new cases added to the report. Clearly we wouldn’t have truly had 30,000,000 new infections in 1 day… but our main sources of news are reporting it that way. If your state/city is using this data, rather than the date of onset or hospitalization data, then they don’t understand how to use data.

As someone who modeled Covid19 in March and accurately predicted it (so far), this is how I believe our reporting should look. *The CDC actually took a similar approach in reporting the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic*

  • Covid19 is serious, but it’s significantly less than we thought
  • Fatality: According to data from the best-studied countries and regions, the lethality of Covid19 is on average about 0.3%, which is about ten times lower than originally assumed by the WHO. The CDC is now estimating ~0.26% in the U.S.
  • Fatality in Context (i.e. Risk): The risk of death for the general population of school and working-age is typically in the range of a daily car ride to work. The risk was initially overestimated because many people with only mild or no symptoms were not taken into account. i.e. we’re capturing most of the deaths but only 5–10% of the infections. Risk varies by age significantly. For kids (particularly toddlers), they are ~20X’s more likely to die from the Flu or Pneumonia than COVID. For those over age 70, the risk of fatality is ~2.5% — this is much higher for those in poor health.
  • Risk & Symptoms: For every 100 people infected ~20-50 of them will show no symptoms (i.e. asymptomatic). Of the symptomatic, ~80% have mild symptoms. Even among 70–79-year-olds, about 60% remain symptom-free. So when accounting for symptomatic + asymptomatic, ~90% have mild or no symptoms. While most won’t know it, for a few, it’s vicious and deadly. *I had it, and it was brutal*
  • Immunity: For the ~30M Americans who already had Covid19, we don’t yet know how effective or how long the antibodies will last. But based on other Coronaviruses, it’s reasonable to assume it’s protective for 6 to 34 months. We also don’t know what % of our population has a strong enough innate immune system to prevent infection in the first place. But up to 60% of the population may already have some level of cross-reactive protection at a cellular level due to contact with previous coronaviruses. So it is possible up to 70% of the U.S. has varying levels of resistance.
  • Comorbidity: is very high. i.e. The median or the average age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years and only about 1% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. In NYC almost everyone had underlying conditions.
  • Highest Risk: In many states, up to two-thirds of all extra deaths occurred in nursing homes — we clearly failed our most vulnerable 😢
  • The Costs: (Lives vs. Lives) not Economy vs. Lives. We may never know this fully, but up to 50% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by Covid19, but by the effects of the response, i.e. policies & panic. For example, the treatment of heart attacks and strokes decreased by up to 60% because many patients stopped visiting hospitals.
  • The Costs: The number of people suffering from unemployment, psychological problems, suicides, delayed treatment, and domestic violence has skyrocketed. Several experts believe that these may claim more lives than the virus itself. According to the UN, millions of people around the world may fall into absolute poverty and famine, which causes more disease/death. One estimate from professors at Stanford & Duke has calculated we’ve now lost more years of life due to our response than the virus.
  • Data Accuracy: We have gaps everywhere, but “hospitalizations” are probably the cleanest and earliest indicator we have. Everyone wants to talk about Fatalities, and we have work to do there. We’re missing some, but we also have clear instances of over-counting, i.e. gunshot victims counted because they had tested positive. It’s not clear whether we have more instances of over-counting or undercounting — or whether they died from or simply with Official figures usually do not reflect this distinction. We’ll need a strong post-mortem study that looks at these.
  • Data Accuracy: For now the best method we have to cut through the noise is to look at mortality in total, “excess deaths.” And even this depends on what you believe. i.e. if we assume 50% of the excess deaths are from our measures, then we’ve over-counted by 70%. If we assume Covid19 is the only variable at play, then we’ve undercounted by 15%. In any case, our counts are likely “in the ballpark” — i.e. tens of thousands.
  • Baselines & Context: The normal overall mortality per day is about 8,000 people in the US. Influenza mortality per season is up to 80,000. Most of our leading forecasts suggest Covid19 will account for ~5% (150,000) of our typical annual deaths (~3,000,000).
  • Capacity: Many clinics in Europe and the US remained strongly underutilized or almost empty during the Covid19 peak and in some cases had to send staff home. In the U.S. we lost 4M healthcare jobs so far and numerous operations/therapies were canceled, including some organ transplants and cancer screenings.
  • Capacity: At peak, New York City had around 1 in 6 hospital beds open and around 1 in 10 ICU beds open. Hospitals had capacity. Nationally, the CDC reports that “COVID Like Illness” at most represented ~7% of hospitalizations … it’s currently under 2%.
  • Forecasts: Most current forecasts assume we’ll go from ~130K fatalities to 150–200K over the coming months. And using the CDC IFR estimate, this means infections would go from ~30M to ~50M. There is debate about how much higher it will go and the size of the second wave. Some believe we’ll top out between 15–20% of the population infected, whereas others say 70–90%. I’d point out we have never had a pandemic over 20–30%.
  • Sources & Scientific Debate: We’ve  used a long list of great resources to put this all together: WorldoMeter, OurWorldinData, and the CDC. We’ve also found unherd.com to be one of the better sources on “context” and a balanced discussion for Covid19. If you only follow MSM and Social Media, chances are you may be surprised to learn there is a fair number of seasoned and credentialed dissenters, including Nobel Prize-winning scientists who completely disagree on the approach most of the World’s governments have taken. In fact, one of the Top 100 most cited scholars, a BioMedical Statistician, and Sr. Epidemiologist from Stanford, John Loannidis, wrote a scathing paper and then conducted one of the first seroprevalence studies. He was berated for it (and to be fair, it did have issues). Only now the CDC and almost every serology study are showing he was more right than wrong (on a rate basis), and more accurate than those who criticized him. The question has to be asked, are we listening to the right scientists?
  • Source Accuracy: Most of the predictions have been grossly wrong For example, many models assumed a 20% hospitalization rate, whereas we’re seeing ~1%. The models that influenced UK & US policy predicted 90K deaths by now in Sweden for not locking down, they are closer to 5K. At the center of many of our policies/strategies was Imperial College & Neil Ferguson. He is the same modeler who said 200M people could die from the bird flu (vs. 282 actual) and H1N1 had a fatality rate of 0.4% (actual was 0.026% or 15X’s lower). Plus, whoever Cuomo and DeBlasio were listening to in NYC when they said they needed 30,000 more ventilators within a week or tens of thousands more would die — should lose credibility. We need to start listening to those who are right and stop listening to those who are wrong.
  • Media Accuracy— Unfortunately, many media outlets have failed to report accurately and with context, and yes, in some cases have totally misrepresented the data and/or used images incorrectly. Some used emotional headlines like “cases surging” while cases were actually decelerating from 30% daily growth rates down to 2–4% … and they would quote “more people dead than 9/11,” but don’t mention that more people die EVERY DAY from normal causes than 9/11. I make no conclusions as to whether it’s incompetence or mal-intent. But it’s definitely wrong, misleading, and fear-mongering.

Summary

Just remember this while digesting these numbers: these findings are the results of thousands of charts, “facts” given by various government and private healthcare entities, and reams of medical data. Assumptions MUST be made in compiling all this. But we’ve tried to abandon any use of opinion in the preparation of these numbers. True numbers with actual experienced data points are mandatory if we expect any accuracy in results computation.

What we WILL be able to do is build on these numbers as new data and numbers on all fronts are experienced going forward. Projections shown above are estimates, but these estimates are based on past facts and projected going forward using several assumptions drawn for past experiences.

Just know this: COVID19 is no doubt a serious disease. Any medical condition that kills is a horror in itself, and one that kills thousands is hundred times worse. Fortunately, we can all breathe a little easier knowing that it looks certain we will in no way see 1900s Spanish flu numbers with COVID! At least that’s one really good thing we can draw from all these numbers. And there’s no opinion there!

The Evil of Wealth and Fame: The Gates

At the world vaccine summit on June 4, Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, used the protests against racism that have been taking place in the United States to say that African Americans should be among the first to receive a vaccine for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.

I didn’t just make that up, folks. Melinda Gates made a racial demand known that the COVID-19 vaccine, which the Gates Foundation has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in its development, should be made available first to African Americans in America. No doubt that sounds like a worthy cause. But why would she make such a sweeping suggestion?

During an interview with Time magazine, the wife of Microsoft’s co-founder revealed that those who should receive the vaccine for the CCP Virus after the medical staff around the world should be African Americans in the United States, even though she did not give a clear explanation for her statements.

“The first people that need this vaccine are the 60 million health care workers around the world. They deserve to get it before anybody else. Then you start tiering,” said Melinda Gates, who, when asked who should get the vaccine next, replied, “In the U.S., that would be black people next, quite honestly, and many other people of color.”

Gates’s arguments are consistent with the media narrative that has been circulating condemning racism in the United States in the wake of the outrage that was formed by the death of African American George Floyd on May 25 at the hands of a white police officer. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is known for funding expensive and controversial vaccination projects around the world with the goal, according to the foundation’s website, of fighting individual diseases or addressing global health challenges in the face of potential future outbreaks.

This organization has also been leading the funding for the World Health Organization in recent years and was only surpassed by the United States. However, President Donald Trump in April ended funding for the organization because it had failed in its primary duty to protect people, allowing the pandemic to spread around the world.

The WHO has also received numerous criticisms from the governments of different countries that distrust the transparency of this international organization in the handling of the virus and the efforts of a coverup that could exist due to the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Meanwhile, the arguments that Melinda Gates would have used to announce that African Americans would be the first to receive a vaccine point to an “equitable way” of dealing with the discrimination experienced by people of color.

“This pledging event means governments around the world will step up in global cooperation to all say, ‘We care about this vaccine getting out equitably,” said Gates, who also noted that “people with underlying health conditions, and then people who are older” would be next in line to receive the vaccine.

Gates’s statements quickly drew criticism from some social network users who questioned whether the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s plans were racially and politically motivated.

“Evidently they do and Melinda Gates wants black people to be the first to get the Bill #GatesOfHell population reducing vaccine that he holds the patents on,” wrote one Twitter user Diamond T.

“Racist Bill Gates has it all figured out. He can reduce the black population and make billions doing it. #ExposeBillGates,” he added.

Regarding the U.S.’s disassociation from the WHO, Melinda Gates noted that no institution is perfect and that amid the pandemic, the last thing [government] should do is make changes or withdraw. “The U.S. government is the largest funder of the WHO. Nobody can replace the funding the U.S. was putting into the WHO,” Gates added.

In mid-May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided to suspend a project on coronavirus testing that had been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The initiative, known as the Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network, or SCAN, said in a statement, “The FDA has not raised any concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of SCAN’s test, but we have been asked to pause testing until we receive that additional authorization,” Reuters reported.

According to the platform designed by the White House, We Are The People, a petition, is currently underway to have Congress investigate the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for “crimes against humanity” and “medical malpractice.” So far, the petition has reached a staggering 580,000 signatures from citizens concerned about the role of the two philanthropists’ foundation in the spread of the coronavirus.

So What’s Up with The Gates?

Their hands are anything but clean, folks.

In 2009, several schools for tribal children in India became sites for observation studies for a cervical cancer vaccine that was administered to thousands of girls aged between nine and 15. The girls were administered the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine in three rounds that year under the supervision of state health department officials. The vaccine used was Gardasil, manufactured by Merck. It was administered to around 16,000 girls in the district, many of whom stayed in state government-run hostels meant for tribal students.

Months later, many girls started falling ill and, by 2010, five of them died. Two more deaths were reported from another village where an estimated 14,000 children studying in schools meant for tribal children were also vaccinated with another brand of HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GSK. Earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported that scores of teenaged girls were hospitalized in a small town in northern Colombia with symptoms that parents suspect could be an adverse reaction to Gardasil.

A standing committee on health and family welfare that investigated the irregularities pertaining to the observation studies in India tabled its report in 2013. The committee found that the objective behind the observation studies in India primarily was to collect and record data on the effect of the vaccines on the minor subjects. Another aim is to help the relevant authorities in India make an informed opinion on introducing the vaccine into India’s immunization program.

The standing committee report was a shocker, but it became even more significant when it was mentioned that the study was sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
Gates revealed that he was funding several efforts in partnership with other companies and countries to “save months because every month counts.” “Our early money can accelerate things,” Gates told The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. “Of all the vaccine constructs, the seven most promising of those, even though we’ll end up picking at most two of them, we’re going to fund factories for all seven, and just so that we don’t waste time in serially saying, ‘Okay, which vaccine works?’ And then building the factory.”

Gates added that spending “a few billion dollars in this situation we’re in, where there are trillions of dollars — that’s a thousand times more — trillions of dollars being lost economically, it is worth it.”

Follow the Money

The Gates Foundation has funded numerous vaccination tests conducted throughout the African continent through the years. Unfortunately, the accuracy of the information that comes from those nations has been questionable at best. And there are those in some news outlets that question whether or not dollars and cents in the millions donated by the Gates clouded the accuracy of those vaccination study results. The problem is that NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE.

Yes, there have been reports of tests that have been ineffective, somewhat effective, and successful. But the fact that those trials and their results have not been widely reported casts doubts on the entire Gates Foundation vaccination concentration.

Many say anytime there are questions of anything in politics or business that prove or appear to confirm success are usually based on one and only one thing: money. And the Gates Foundation has many who point fingers at the Foundation for funding and trying to hide negative results of their third-world testings kept quiet, wondering if there are personal goals and objectives for their doing so.

Keep in mind, Bill Gates made it clear as long ago as in 2010 that (paraphrased) he is NOT a population control nut, instead, he because he cannot see Earth sustaining the current annual population growth indefinitely, we MUST find ways to stop the growth of population, but NOT at the expense of those already alive.

Bundle those thoughts with these questions:

  • Why are vaccinations THE most important medical process in our lifetimes and those of our children and grandchildren? (that according to Bill and Melinda Gates)
  • What are the financial probabilities of successful discovery, positive testing, development and market of vaccines for pretty much everything: COVID-19, HPM, Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, and other diseases? Some have put the potential dollars that will be made when a COVID-19 vaccine goes to market as $100 billion per year! Gates famously said he intends to create an environment in which EVERY child on Earth will be required to be vaccinated by these vaccines. Imagin the ongoing profit to be made.
  • A scary thought when considering Melinda Gates’ statement that African Americans should be at the front of the line for COVID-19 vaccinations has horrified many. Why? With their multiple public comments for the necessity of population control, what better way to accomplish that than with something inserted in a vaccine? What else could be mixed with the vaccine serum in a syringe that is dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine?

Summary

We can take this down all sorts of mysterious and spooky paths — this “conspiracy theory.” One can go to several different fact-check sites and search “Gates population control theory.” You’ll see several articles published by several reputable news sources that debunk any concern of such evil even being considered.

I am indeed not maintaining that these thoughts in this story are factual. We are careful to take that approach every time we present something that hasn’t been verified. In this case, these thoughts have NOT been verified, but because the facts of all of this have been purposely hidden, covered-up by those medical technicians involved in this process who certainly don’t want to be exposed, which is easily accomplished because of the undeniable financial prowess of the Gates family.

What should be done? What CAN be done?! Those are real questions. Unfortunately, my answers can only be for me:

  1. I will NEVER take another vaccination. I have received several in the past for the flu and pneumonia. I shudder to think I have NO idea what was included in those syringes. Quite honestly, the flu virus does not work in even a majority of its uses in the U.S., and no one says a thing about it. If there is a reality in such a vaccine, wouldn’t it be prudent to question its continued usage?
  2. I will continue to diligently research the laboratory test results that I can find anywhere on Earth: who initiates those studies, who holds the researchers accountable for findings, and who funds them. We have ongoing research underway to try and get details of the reported failed human tests completed in remote African villages for polio and HPM vaccines funded by the Gates Foundation.

For you, I suggest you question EVERYTHING! It is no longer sufficient in the U.S. to without thought trust what we hear from medical “experts.” If nothing has ever given you pause for doing so before, indeed, with all of the untruths and misinformation we have received from numerous experts regarding COVID-19 should make you question!

No, doing so is not easy. It takes time; it takes developing relationships with people who you usually would not do so. It takes work. Our commitment here is to keep doing so. You would not believe the plethora of emails, texts, that include stories, names, theories, and statements by people regarding all of this. What do we do with it all? We research it. Our underlying assumption when we begin is this: we’ll look at each asking the question, “What if we DON’T prove it’s false? What will the potential cost be, and for whom?” That’s a scary responsibility?

“To Whom much is given, much is expected.”

That’s a lofty characterization of stewardship of all things that have been given to us. You may be angry at me for saying what I say in closing: “Now that you know how and what on which to base YOUR research, you’re responsible for what you do with it!”

Facts about Covid-19 REAL Facts

There will be no podcast today. What would normally be today’s podcast with this story will be included in our on-air show at “TNN Live” beginning at 9 AM Central this morning. Join us by clicking the “Click to Listen Live” blue horizontal button at the top of this story at 9 AM.

Yes, we’ve heard and have listened to numerous “experts” for months now who have each pontificated the “truths” about COVID-19. The problem is that every one of these “experts” has been wrong: at best most of the time, but mostly all of the time. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been looking for COVID-19 facts and perspective from real experts who have no vested interest in whatever the outcome will be of COVID-19 other than that of a regular citizen of some country — ANY country — on Earth.

We’ve found that!

What we are presenting to you today are fully referenced facts about Covid-19, provided by experts in the field from multiple countries who have ALL done this one thing: compiled statistics based on “REAL” research and provided the results of the research compiled from several hundred doctors in the fields of infectious disease, epidemiology, and immunology. We do this to help our readers make a realistic risk assessment.

In this research, we have provided dozens of hyperlinks within each of these notes with which you can (and we certainly advise that you do) use yourself to see the background basics on which these conclusions are based.

“The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” (Albert Camus, 1947)

Overview

  1. According to data from the best-studied countries and regions, the lethality of Covid19 is, on average about 0.2%, which is in the range of severe influenza (flu) and about twenty times lower than initially assumed by the WHO.
  2. Even in the global “hotspots,” the risk of death for the general population of school and working-age is typically in the range of a daily car ride to work. The risk was initially overestimated because many people with only mild or no symptoms were not taken into account.
  3. Up to 80% of all test-positive persons remain symptom-free. Even among 70-79-year-olds, about 60% remain symptom-free. Over 97% of all persons develop mild symptoms at most.
  4. Up to 60% of all persons may already have a certain cellular background immunity to Covid19 due to contact with previous coronaviruses (i.e., common cold viruses).
  5. The median or average age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years, and only about 1% of the deceased had no severe preconditions. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially corresponds to normal mortality.
  6. In many countries, up to two-thirds of all extra deaths occurred in nursing homes, which do not benefit from a general lockdown. Moreover, in many cases, it is not clear whether these people died from Covid19 or extreme stress, fear, and loneliness.
  7. Up to 50% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by Covid19, but by the effects of the lockdown, panic, and fear. For example, the treatment of heart attacks and strokes decreased by up to 60% because many patients no longer dared to go to the hospital.
  8. Even in so-called “Covid19 deaths,” it is often not clear whether they died from or with coronavirus (i.e., from underlying diseases) or if they were counted as “presumed cases” and not tested at all. However, official figures usually do not reflect this distinction.
  9. Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid19 turned out to be false. Many of these young people either did not die from Covid19; they had already been seriously ill (e.g., from undiagnosed leukemia), or they were, in fact, 109 instead of 9 years old. The claimed increase in Kawasaki disease in children also turned out to be false.
  10. The standard overall mortality per day is about 8000 people in the US, about 2600 in Germany, and about 1800 in Italy. Influenza mortality per season is up to 80,000 in the US and up to 25,000 in Germany and Italy. In several countries, Covid19 deaths remained below strong flu seasons.
  11. Regional increases in mortality can occur if there is a collapse in the care of the elderly and sick as a result of infection or panic, or if there are additional risk factors such as severe air pollution. Special regulations for dealing with the deceased sometimes led to further bottlenecks in funeral or cremation services.
  12. In countries such as Italy and Spain, and to some extent the UK and the US, hospital overloads due to strong flu waves are not unusual. Also, up to 15% of doctors and health workers were put into quarantine, even if they developed no symptoms.
  13. The often shown exponential curves of “corona cases” are misleading, as the number of tests also increased exponentially. In most countries, the ratio of positive tests to tests overall (i.e., the positive rate) remained constant at 5% to 25% or increased only slightly. In many countries, the peak of the spread was already reached well before the lockdown.
  14. Countries without curfews and contact bans, such as Japan, South Korea, or Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events than other countries. Sweden was even praised by the WHO and now benefits from higher immunity compared to lockdown countries.
  15. The fear of a shortage of ventilators was unjustified. According to lung specialists, the invasive ventilation (intubation) of Covid19 patients, which is partly done out of fear of spreading the virus, is, in fact, often counterproductive and damaging to the lungs.
  16. Contrary to original assumptions, various studies have shown that there is no evidence of the virus spreading through aerosols (i.e., tiny particles floating in the air) or through smear infections (e.g., on door handles or smartphones). The main modes of transmission are direct contact and droplets produced when coughing or sneezing.
  17. There is also no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of face masks in healthy or asymptomatic individuals. On the contrary, experts warn that such masks interfere with normal breathing and may become “germ carriers.” Leading doctors called them a “media hype” and “ridiculous.”
  18. Many clinics in Europe and the US remained strongly underutilized or almost empty during the Covid19 peak and, in some cases, had to send staff home. Numerous operations and therapies were canceled, including some organ transplants and cancer screenings.
  19. Several media were caught trying to dramatize the situation in hospitals, sometimes even with manipulative images and videos. In general, the unprofessional reporting of many media maximized fear and panic in the population.
  20. The virus test kits used internationally are prone to errors and can produce false-positive and false-negative results. Moreover, the official virus test was not clinically validated due to time pressure and may sometimes react positively to other coronaviruses.
  21. Numerous internationally renowned experts in the fields of virology, immunology, and epidemiology consider the measures taken to be counterproductive and recommend rapid natural immunization of the general population and protection of risk groups. The risks for children are virtually zero, and closing schools was never medically warranted.
  22. Several medical experts described vaccines against coronaviruses as unnecessary or even dangerous. Indeed, the vaccine against the so-called swine flu of 2009, for example, led to sometimes severe neurological damage and lawsuits in the millions.
  23. The number of people suffering from unemployment, psychological problems, and domestic violence as a result of the measures has skyrocketed worldwide. Several experts believe that the measures may claim more lives than the virus itself. According to the UN, millions of people around the world may fall into absolute poverty and famine.
  24. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden warned that the “corona crisis” will be used for the massive and permanent expansion of global surveillance. The renowned virologist Pablo Goldschmidt spoke of a “global media terror” and “totalitarian measures.” Leading British virologist professor John Oxford spoke of a “media epidemic.”
  25. More than 500 scientists have warned against “unprecedented surveillance of society” through problematic apps for “contact tracing.” In some countries, such as “contact tracing” is already carried out directly by the secret service. In several parts of the world, the population is already being monitored by drones and facing serious police overreach.
  26. A 2019 WHO study on public health measures against pandemic influenza found that from a medical perspective, “contact tracing” is “not recommended in any circumstances.”

Summary

OK: start throwing rocks at me! You might scream, “Dan, when I click on these links, I’m forwarded to documents and other information that is exhaustive in content. I don’t have time to do research that requires that much time!”

I know that: that’s the purpose of TruthNewsNetwork. I am a research fanatic. My wife will tell you I spend hours on end digging, searching, not believing what I find, and therefore digging some more for hours, seven days a week. That’s my hobby.

Rather than continue to deal with all of the politically partisan stories that appear in the hundreds daily and try to confirm the voracity of each, we thought it would prudent (and more attentive to your time) to ferret out sources that are genuine “News” sources. In this case, dozens of professionals from every applicable medical field from multiple countries have formed a platform to give analysis and facts NOT based on politics.

Please let us know your thoughts on this structure to give you facts and its backup process for exhaustive details. As always, our commitment is to do that for you daily.

Facts matter! Our quest is to continually provide those to you everyday.

Will We Ever Know?

Today we find ourselves still mired in nothing but a big pile of question marks. We’ve been dealing with COVID-19 since February when the U.S. started having confirmed cases of Coronavirus. We’re less than a week away from June. And we still don’t know the answers to this virus!

Why is knowing all this stuff so important? There are many reasons:

  • The cost in human lives, human resources, national resources, lost time and gross domestic product, skyrocketing unemployment, massive business losses not to mention the political costs for the blame for everything to do with responses are incalculable;
  • If we cannot find a verified source for the virus, how can we know for certain what measures will be effective to first eradicate it and then assure it doesn’t happen again?
  • What if China or Russia, either in solo or in tandem, weaponized the virus against the U.S. and/or any other countries on Earth? Wouldn’t doing so be sufficient to initiate massive actions against any responsible country by any and all countries impacted?
  • “If” China really did weaponize it to use against the U.S., and its “accidental” leaking from their Wuhan laboratory sparked the worldwide pandemic, are there no financial repercussions for China for their responsibility?

But, I guess the most important thing we need to know is when will it be safe for us to return our normal lives? I’m fearful that until we can answer that question, American life MAY recover some of its economic vitality, but I think it will take years to revitalize multiple segments in our economy. There are certainly horrors in our economic infrastructure that as of yet have not even been identified.

For today, why don’t we start at the beginning and go to the “horse’s mouth” to lay some type of foundation on which we can build answers to try to get going in our massive rebuilding project?

Chinese virologist Shi-Zheng Li, who has studied the origin of the coronavirus in SARS-like bats previously, said the virus everyone now knows is just “the tip of the iceberg.” Shi works at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, an institution that, in light of international criticism blaming the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for spreading the virus, has aligned itself with the CCP’s misleading explanations. Although there are now a growing number of reports denying the natural origin of the CCP Virus, in an interview on Monday, May 25th with a CCP state-run television station, Shi said an international effort is needed to prevent similar outbreaks of infection and that knowledge of viruses carried by wild animals is necessary. Shi’s recent warnings created even more suspicions about the CCP’s intentions in the pandemic after she was the target of numerous criticisms. She did manage to decode the virus strain in three days in December last year. As reported, Shi’s discovery could have been very useful in the early development of diagnostic tests as well as vaccines to treat the disease, “IF” the CCP would have warned the World and cooperated with the U.S. who offered on multiple occasions to send virologists and immunologists to China to help with the virus problem. The CCP declined each time. Shi confessed that after communicating her findings in a conference she had attended last year to research new unidentified diseases, she was fearful about the possibility that the CCP Virus had escaped from the laboratory. Rumors began to circulate on social networks that Shi had at one point been pressured to discard the reports she had prepared, was forced to flee with several confidential documents to the U.S. Embassy in Paris, although later she herself denied the information through the Chinese social network WeChat.“No matter how difficult things are, it (defecting) shall never happen. We’ve done nothing wrong. With a strong belief in science, we will see the day when the clouds disperse and the sun shines,” wrote Shi.

Gao Yu, a reporter who interviewed Shi, said, “We learned later her institute finished gene-sequencing and related tests as early as January 2 but was muzzled.” That meant, of course, that the knowledge of the virus, its release, and how and where it initially traveled was already known at the first of the year.

Amid the controversy over Shi’s statements, a 15-page intelligence report obtained by the Australian newspaper Saturday Telegraph was released, which points to the silencing of several doctors by the CCP who tried to talk about the virus. The document also indicates that important evidence was destroyed and doctors working on a vaccine were denied access to samples. According to the declassified file, the CCP began censorship on Dec. 31 of last year.

The CCP has at the same time reinforced the idea that the virus did not come from the Wuhan lab after Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said this month that the Wuhan Virology Institute was not the source of the outbreak after reviews of the facility were conducted, The Washington Times reported.

But amid the global alarm generated by the pandemic, more studies and statements by medical experts have gradually come to light that suggests the CCP Virus may have had an artificial source.

In April, Richard H. Height, a well-known molecular biologist whose expertise on the CCP Virus has been highlighted several times by the Washington Post and MSNBC, told the Daily Caller News Foundation that there was a high probability that the virus had leaked from a laboratory accident.

A recent study by a group of Australian scientists investigating a cure for the CCP Virus found “a remarkable coincidence or a sign of human intervention.”

The findings made by the scientists led by Dr. Nikolai Petrovsky of the University of Flinders, Australia, were observed after analyzing high-throughput computer models to study the virus’s ability to attack 12 varieties of exotic and domestic animals.

“The results clearly show that the COVID-19 virus is exquisitely adapted to infect humans,” Petrovsky said.

Summary

There you have it from the horse’s mouth: the scientist who was there from the beginning. And here we are at least six months into the existence of this virus and its being loose running amuck all over the Earth and we still don’t know almost everything!

Call me a simple guy, but to me, something just doesn’t smell right. We’ve all heard the conspiracy theories about the purpose and the origins of the virus: Chinese scientists developed it in a Canadian laboratory on behalf of the CCP and sneaked it out of Canada back to the lab in Wuhan; a Chinese scientist who hated the U.S. and the rest of the West intentionally took the virus from the lab and personally carried it to Canada and the U.S. and then released it. And the stories go on and on. But we’re here almost six months later and we know very little about this virus — heck we don’t even know if it for sure is a virus!

One would think that being the foremost country on Earth in just about every field of science and medicine, having THE virus guy in this from the get-go who has for half a century been up to his eyeballs in infectious disease research on behalf of the nation, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and having what is reputedly the most proficient national science research entity on earth in the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we would already know something. But here we sit after the first boring Memorial Day weekend of my life and we cannot even agree how far apart it is safe for people to socially distance!

One thing IS certain: our current President, even with the incessant flack and insults and even threats he faces daily, is the only President I can remember who actually performs better when he’s under fire. If all it takes for him to step up to the plate to hit a guaranteed homer is pressure, we have the right to expect nothing less! But the problem for President Trump is this is happening in a field that is outside his circle of knowledge. That certainly doesn’t mean he’s stupid — anything but that. But as a successful business manager who has run companies with thousands of employees for decades, he knows that when knowledge in any specific area is missing, there’s someone out there that has the information necessary to push through any challenge. And for this challenge, the “experts” — Pelosi and Schumer — made it clear he needed Anthony Fauci. Of course, they insisted that he have someone who could “get him to listen to real advice” and take whatever actions the experts recommended.

How’s that Fauci guidance working out for us right now?

“If” the Democrats are somehow NOT part of the initiation of this pandemic, (and I pray they have no involvement) they certainly didn’t waste a minute to line up with stones and are wasting no time to start the stoning of President Trump. They, as quickly as they could, weaponized COVID-19 and made it a Donald Trump responsibility — or they’ve tried to.

I don’t know what their weaponization intentions were, but I doubt they considered the cost to the American people and the economy this pandemic and its fallout is today. So they just continue to go with the flow. Nancy and Chuck better pray that if they did have some role in this that it never comes to life. You think those Michigan folks showing up at the state Capitol in Lansing with those guns strapped to their legs were a bit upset for missing their haircuts and manicures, wait until they are told that Democrats orchestrated this shutdown!

I always like to end by giving my advice about what we can do. But I don’t have any! I’m just like every other American at this point. We can pray. We can watch, listen, and learn. We can continually try to find answers even though to do that we are forced to wade through the weeds of disinformation and lies from the Left.

Here’s the one thing I hold onto: our divine Father led our forefathers away from the totalitarian rule and gave them a new start in a new place with a new clean slate. They very carefully used that slate to craft and establish the greatest representative republic in World history. I believe that the same process is being put in place today to lead us out of this desert in which we find ourselves: hungry, thirsty, lonely, and confused.

Hang in there! And as my Cajun Mom used to say to me when I would get discouraged as a kid: “Keep on Keeping on.” Good advice for me then and good advice for all of us now.

Will the Real Anthony Fauci Please Stand Up?

NOTE: There will be no podcasts until Monday, Memorial Day. There WILL be daily stories. Additionally, “TNN LIVE” will NOT air today through Monday but will return Tuesday morning, May 26. In the way of explanation, we are making some changes — upgrades — to make our programming better and more inclusive of our audience. Please pass this message along to those you know are part of the TruthNewsNetwork family.

 

For three years, critics of President Trump have claimed that he arrogantly refuses to listen to his experts and that his exaggerated sense of self prevents him from accepting his limitations.

Applying that narrative to Trump’s initial failure to appreciate the gravity of the coronavirus, NBC host Chuck Todd asked former Vice President Joe Biden, “Do you think there is blood on the president’s hands, considering the slow response? Or is that too harsh of a criticism?” Even Biden called the criticism a “little too harsh.”

“A little too harsh”? Trump, neither a doctor nor a scientist, merely followed the advice given to him from his medical experts. The problem is that a lot of the advice was vague, inconsistent, contradictory, or flat-out wrong.

Dr. Anthony Fauci needs no introduction. He has become a respected voice in explaining the coronavirus, what to expect from it and how we can fight it. Democrats and Republicans praise him and his dedicated service under six presidents, both Republicans, and Democrats. But his advice has been well short of perfect. On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a “pandemic.” Before this declaration, what did Fauci say?

This is from a Jan. 21 interview with Newsmax:

Host: “Bottom line, we don’t have to worry about this one, right?”

Fauci: “Well, you know, obviously, you need to take it seriously and do the kinds of things that the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security are doing. But this is not a major threat (emphasis added) for the people of the United States, and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.”

On Feb. 3, Fauci told CNBC: “It’s still an evolving situation. We don’t know exactly where it’s going to go, what the pattern is. But clearly right now at least the number of cases are accelerating.” And in late March, William Haseltine, Ph.D., former professor at Harvard Medical School and distinguished researcher in biophysics and biomedicine, admitted: “Well, we know it’s highly infectious, and as the days go by, we’re learning it’s more infectious than we thought it was, say, a month ago, even two weeks ago.”

The medical experts’ advice has also been inconsistent on whether nonmedical personnel with no symptoms should wear face masks in public. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently issued a directive to do so: “Out of an abundance of caution, this is what I’m saying to all New Yorkers: Take a scarf, take a bandanna, just anything you have at home, just cover your face if you’re going to be in close contact with people who are not your own family under your own roof.” The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, issued a similar directive.

But just days earlier, on March 26, the World Health Organization tweeted: “If you do not have any respiratory symptoms, such as fever, cough, or runny nose, you do not need to wear a medical mask. When used alone, masks can give you a false feeling of protection and can even be a source of infection when not used correctly.”

When used alone, masks can give you a false feeling of protection and can even be a source of infection when not used correctly.”

“To Mask or not to Mask?” Here are Fauci’s instructions on what to do:

Let’s quickly see a potpourri of “Fauci-isms” that do a whole bunch to discredit his credibility. These are in addition to what was shown above.

1.)  Dr. Fauci says he warned Trump in January that the US was in real trouble but that is not what he said publicly.

**Fauci said he told the administration “we were in real trouble” from the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus in mid to late January and that Trump’s travel bans were instituted too late to be effective. Earlier that same weekend Fauci told CNN that lives were lost because Trump didn’t heed his advice for social distancing and lockdowns in February.

**In January Dr. Anthony Fauci told Newsmax TV that the United States “did not have to worry” about the coronavirus and that it was “not a major threat.”

2.)  Dr. Fauci warned of an apocalyptic coronavirus pandemic — then just weeks later he later compared the coronavirus to a bad flu.

(March 26, 2020) Last week morning Governors Gavin Newsom from California and Andrew Cuomo from New York announced complete lockdown on state residents due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There had been 16,067 cases of the coronavirus reported in the US at the time.
There had been 219 deaths in the US due to coronavirus at that time.

The following morning NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci told reporters during the daily White House press conference, “I strongly agree” with the New York and California governors for shutting down their state economies.

This was based on the highly flawed models on the coronavirus that were being peddled at that time.

But what a difference a week makes! The previous Thursday, Dr. Fauci co-authored a report on the coronavirus in the New England Journal of Medicine.

In the report Dr. Fauci now argues that the mortality rate of the coronavirus may be much closer to a very bad flu.

(Here are the details of THAT News)

Dr Fauci authored article in NEJM today supports contention below that COVID fatality rate may be much closer to very bad flu. H/t @mizdonna @Barnes_Law @ITGuy1959 @ScottAdamsSays @theconservador https://t.co/4hQZR8DvZb https://t.co/d4wvZzgctS pic.twitter.com/9x59TsVEKk

3.) Dr. Fauci based all of his predictions on garbage IHME models that were OFF BY MILLIONS and then told reporters the next week, “You can’t really rely on models.”

4.) On March 20th Dr. Fauci jumped in and “corrected” the president during a press briefing on hydroxychloroquine treatment for coronavirus saying, “You got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective.’ It was never done in a clinical trial… It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.”

5.)  Dr. Fauci pushed these garbage models every step of the way.

March 20th Dr. Fauci claimed 1 million to 2 million Americans would die from coronavirus. Then he said 100,000 to 200,000 Americans will die from the virus. A month ago he agreed 81,766 Americans would die from the coronavirus. Five days later the experts cut the number of deaths to 60,415 projected deaths.

6.) WHITE House coronavirus expert Dr. Tony Fauci said Sunday (April 12th) lives could have been saved if the U.S. had been shut down earlier. Speaking on CNN, the immunologist said the U.S. could start to reopen next month, but warned a second wave of the virus could still hit the country. During the interview, Fauci revealed that the government had been advised to begin social distancing measures in February. President Trump announced plans to roll out “self-isolating” in mid-March.

Dr. Fauci said President Trump should have shut down the economy in February.

But on February 29th,  Fauci told the TODAY Show that you don’t need to “change anything you’re doing.”:

Summary

Here’s the short from this journalist on the validity of what Dr. Anthony Fauci has to say regarding COVID-19: listen to what he says. Before making ANY decision about taking action based on his advice, confirm it in at least two other sources or ignore it altogether!

This man almost by himself gave advice to all those responsible for the life and death of Americans, he parlayed his perceived knowledge and expertise into convincing 50 governors, a President, and 300 million other Americans that if we did not totally shut down the economy of the U.S., we were all going to die!

We listened…we acted…and he is WRONG!

The Facts are In: Hydroxycloroquine is a Hoax

Washington Post Opinion Piece

THE HYPE over the drug hydroxychloroquine was fueled by President Trump, who touted it repeatedly. The president’s claims were not backed by scientific evidence, but he was enthusiastic. “What do you have to lose?” he has asked. In desperation, the public snapped up pills and the Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization on March 28 for the drug to be given to hospitalized patients. On Thursday, Mr. Trump declared, “So we have had some great response, in terms of doctors writing letters and people calling on the hydroxychloroquine.”

Now comes the evidence. Two large studies of hospitalized patients in New York City have found the drug was essentially useless against the virus.

One study, by Eli S. Rosenberg and colleagues, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, examined 1,438 patients suffering from infection across 25 hospitals in the New York area between March 15 and 28. The study also looked at those who received hydroxychloroquine along with the antibiotic azithromycin. Mr. Trump had heralded the combination as “a real chance to be one of the biggest game-changers in the history of medicine.” The conclusion of the study: “Among patients hospitalized in metropolitan New York with COVID-19, treatment with hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, or both, compared with neither treatment, was not significantly associated with differences in in-hospital mortality.”

The second study, by Joshua Geleris and colleagues, examined 1,376 patients at New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Irving Medical Center in northern Manhattan from March 7 to April 8. Their conclusion in the New England Journal of Medicine: “In this analysis involving a large sample of consecutive patients who had been hospitalized with Covid-19, the risk of intubation or death was not significantly higher or lower among patients who received hydroxychloroquine than among those who did not.” The results, they said, “do not support the use of hydroxychloroquine at present” except in clinical trials.

The two studies were observational. Separate, controlled clinical trials are underway, including one sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. But both of these hospital studies examined a group of patients significantly larger than the tiny, initial research by the maverick doctor Didier Raoult in Marseille, France, that triggered the frenzy.

Then there’s this story:

TRUMP’S MIRACLE DRUG: French Study of 1,000+ Patients Including Seniors See 98% Success Rate with Hydroxychloroquine-Azithromycin Regimen

In late March FOX News host, Laura Ingraham reported on the latest study by the French research team led by the renowned epidemiologist Dr. Didier Raoult was able to repeat his findings from a previous study.

This time Dr. Raoult administered hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to 80 patients and observed improvement in EVERY CASE except for a very sick 86-year-old with an advanced form of coronavirus infection.

(Here are the details of the trials of this test. It may be hard to read.)

My Few Questions for the “Experts:”

• Why were not the findings of the two studies for the summary of their findings listed as are those in the French study? Isn’t it mandatory for a reputable study to disclose those findings so as to give them some credibility?
• Stories all over the news yesterday quoted “experts” and “doctors” who said, “Hydroxychloroquine will kill you.” Where are any facts to confirm those claims?
• If as media pundits keep saying that HCQ CAN kill you, why would the FDA even allow its use in any format under any conditions? “Will Kill” is pretty demonstrative and final.
• If tens of thousands of doctors around the world are self-prescribing Hydroxychloroquine for themselves as a prophylactic against COVID-19, doesn’t it make medical sense there should be a sound basis for their doing so?
• Why do the deaths of 60,000 Americans not spur the “experts” to conduct the clinical trials they demand are necessary to green-light Hydroxychloroquine for formal use against COVD-19 in an emergency 24/7 setting? Could it be that either 60,000 is to them an acceptable loss of life against a virus or could it be there’s some reason they want to downplay the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine for use against COVID-19?

Summary

It is curious that although the new “miracle COVID-19 drug” remdisivir is still in early testing and there are no completed clinical trial studies from which its efficacy is confirmed – in Dr. Fauci’s analysis of Hydroxychloroquine’s test results, remdisivir’s results currently would be called “anecdotal” as he has termed Dr. Raoult’s results – the FDA immediately when notified of its readiness for clinical trials green-lighted remdisivir human tests. That is VERY rare.

Many experts feel there is an economic purpose for the downplay of Hydroxychloroquine’s benefits of treating the virus.

Wait: don’t think for a second big Pharma has no stake in this pandemic and therefore no concern for the findings of clinical trials for both remdisivir and Hydroxychloroquine. That’s exactly what Democrats who were begging for control of the House in the 2018 election promised they would immediately do after being sworn: FORCE BIG PHARMA TO SLASH DRUG PRICES FOR EVERYDAY AMERICANS! That has NOT happened. Any price reductions in prescription drugs Americans have seen came about by measures taken by the Trump Administration with NO involvement of Congress. Big Pharma is “Big” solely because of their monopolies in the U.S. perpetuated by the largest and most financially qualified to “facilitate the legislative concerns” of Big Pharma: Lobbyists.

Several years ago I spent two months on business in Switzerland. My original plan was for that trip to last two weeks at most. I had prescriptions that while there needed to be refilled. I had my doctor email those prescriptions from the U.S. and headed to a Swiss pharmacy. To be brief, one month of my prescriptions purchased at my pharmacy at home cost about $150. The exact same prescription drugs in Switzerland cost $35.

What’s the difference? Big Pharma through U.S. federal legislation through the years has parlayed contacts with legislators to make sure drug prices are artificially inflated that are sold in the U.S.!

You don’t think they see drugs for COVID-19 as the latest gravy train they need to control?

By the way, I have a Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin prescription that I WILL fill if and when I show the first symptom of COVID-19. I have total confidence in MY doctor who told me to do it because he’s doing it!

Healthcare: Fear Driving the Narrative of Decisions

Lot’s of us have memories of getting in pretty serious trouble as a kid and Mom or Dad making US go pick the switch with which we were going to the “tar beat out of us!” Which switch do I choose? If I pick one too skinny, they’ll get mad and get a BIG one. If it’s too big, it will hurt too much!”

That fear came knowing the certainty our penalty for making a wrong decision was an “either-or” choice. We’re facing a much different fear today.

Danged if We Do and Danged if we Don’t

“What are the RIGHT things to do about Coronavirus? What are the WRONG things to do for Coronavirus?”

If your answers for those two questions you are certain are the correct answers, please share them with all of us– QUICKLY!

The truth is, we’re getting answers for everything. But we’re not getting CORRECT answers for everything. And our fear comes from not knowing which are true.

If you want to see the most effortless picture of the fear that has engulfed several hundred million Americans over this, take a walk through Central Park on Memorial Day.

Go to the park early. At 5:45 am, it is occupied by maybe 100 runners and cyclists, spread over 843 acres. A large portion of these early-bird exercisers wears masks. Are they trying to protect anyone they might encounter from their unsuspected coronavirus infection? Who knows. But if you run towards an oncoming runner on a path that will keep you at least three yards away when you pass each other, he is likely to lunge sideways in fear if your face is not covered. The masked cyclists must think that there are enough virus particles suspended in the billions of square feet of fresh air circulating across the park to get into their mucous membranes and, “AHA: you’ve got Coronavirus!”

These are probably dead-wrong beliefs, yet they demonstrate the degree of paranoia that has infected the population. Every day the lockdown continues, its message that we are all going to die if we participate in ordinary life is reinforced. Polls show an increasing number of Americans choosing to continue the economic quarantine indefinitely so they won’t die! The longer that belief is reinforced, the less likely it will be that consumers will show up at reopened restaurants or board airplanes in sufficient numbers to bring the economy back to life.

Very few find the facts of outdoor viral transmission. The truth is that the chance of getting infected across a wide-open, windswept space is virtually nil, even if the imaginary carrier were not moving quickly past his potential victim. Closeness to the carrier, prolonged exposure, and being in an enclosed space are the biggest risk factors. Even the New York Times, one of the most aggressive purveyors of virus hysteria, could not avoid acknowledging this commonsensical truth about outdoor transmission. Most viral specialists will agree that outdoors is safe, and there is undoubtedly no cloud of virus-laden droplets hanging around. The key word in that sentence is “Most.” And even then what they tell us is their opinion based on the best information they have. But in the back of our minds we know that all of the COVID-19 views are still mainly minus factual explanations. The bottom line, most doctors THINK, “It is safe to go for a walk and jog and not to worry about the virus in the air.”

Those fearful Central Park bikers would ask, “Are you sure enough of that to base your life on it?”

FEAR.

Scientific studies of how viruses travel usually assume indoor settings. A recent study from China confirmed that the risk of coronavirus infection occurs overwhelmingly indoors. The researchers identified only one outdoor outbreak of disease among over a thousand cases studied. Most transmissions occurred at home.

Japan, with an elderly and highly urban population of 126.5 million, rejected a nationwide economic lockdown and emphasized instead the need to avoid the three Cs: confined spaces, crowded places, and close contact. It has had only 360 deaths at the end of April.

Americans, for the most part, have NOT adopted those opinions of the Japanese. And the American media and the healthcare officials we see everywhere on television are NOT considering that Japanese plan to fight Coronavirus either.

The public health establishment is fighting desperately to maintain the current degree of hysteria in the populace, to prolong its newfound power over almost every aspect of American life. “Death will erupt if the lockdowns are lifted,” the experts warn every few minutes on the cable news networks. “It’s going to backfire,” Dr. Anthony Fauci warns again and again. Even as evidence keeps mounting that the virus is MANY-TIMES less deadly than was advertised, the public health professionals are hardening their economy-killing prescriptions, rather than loosening them.

David Kessler, a former head of the FDA, claims that Americans will need to eliminate two-thirds of their social contacts for a year or more until a vaccine is developed. The federal government should commandeer private factories to produce the millions of test kits that will be required daily before anyone can be “fully free,” he says.

A professor of pediatrics warns that restrictions must not be loosened “anytime soon,” because the models that show a decline in cases after a peak are untrustworthy. Of course, the invariably inaccurate upward slopes of those same models have been endlessly quoted to us to justify the shutdown.

A Harvard epidemiologist predicts the necessity of social distancing through at least 2022. “Employers should not let their employees leave the office for lunch until a vaccine is developed,” said former FDA commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, and a former CDC deputy director. Restaurateurs may not appreciate this recommendation.

For some reason, scientists circulate ancient findings that have little bearing on actual risk but hold great potential to increase anxiety. An infectious aerosols scientist from the University of Maryland told the New York Times for the paper’s social distancing infographic: “It’s not like, oh it’s six feet, the viral particles are all fallen, and there’s nothing.” Translation: “don’t dare to think that you are safe from others at distances over six feet.” The New York Times notes happily, with another scary diagram, MIT researchers have observed particles from a cough traveling 16 feet and those from a sneeze traveling as far as 26 feet. But the dosage at such distances would be incapable of infecting anyone.

The experts’ alarms over a post-lockdown surge in infections may not be necessary, however. A majority of Americans already believe that danger is everywhere at the same time (that’s correctly called “ubiquitous”), and are prepared to sacrifice millions of more livelihoods to feel “safe.” Seventy-three percent of respondents in a recent Wall Street Journal poll were worried that they or someone in their immediate family would become infected — a proposition that would translate to over 300 million infected Americans. Though recent data from New York and California reveal that the virus’s existence in the population has been much greater than previously known (and the death rate much lower than our experts have asserted), it is unlikely that 300 million Americans will become infected. Fifty-eight percent of poll respondents were more worried about relaxing the stay-at-home restrictions than about the economic damage that prolonged restrictions would inflict. Only 32 percent of respondents were more concerned about a failure to lift the quarantine restrictions promptly.

Newspaper reader comment sections and the Twitter-sphere spew righteous anger upon anyone who suggests the most minimal reinstatement of ordinary life. Even blue state politicians are not immune from backlash. New York mayor Bill De Blasio came under fire for announcing that the city’s traditional Fourth of July fireworks celebration would go forward. “We’ll find a way to put on a show that will show how much we love our country,” he said uncharacteristically. A representative Twitter commenter shot back: “is this genuinely what you think people are worried about right now?”

We are in a race between the ideology of “safetyism” (that’s a brand new word — another -ism) and the facts. The future depends on which side wins. The data is clear. The coronavirus danger is narrowly targeted at a particular portion of the national population: the elderly infirm, especially those located in New York City and its surrounding suburbs. It possesses a minimal risk to everyone else. New York State accounted for 42 percent of the national death toll on April 24, with 77 percent of those New York State deaths occurring in New York City.

The average death rate from coronavirus in New York City is 128 per 100,000. In New York State, it is 71 per 100,000. To put those numbers in perspective, the national death rate for all causes was 723.6 per 100,000 in 2018; for heart disease, it was 163.6 per 100,000. New York’s coronavirus death rates bear no resemblance to the country at large, despite New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent pronouncement that “an outbreak anywhere is an outbreak everywhere.” California’s coronavirus death rate is four deaths per 100,000; Pennsylvania’s, 13 deaths per 100,000; Utah’s, one death per 100,000; Washington State’s, nine deaths per 100,000; Wisconsin’s, four deaths per 100,000; Georgia’s, which we are supposed to believe is about to unleash a mortal plague upon the country, eight deaths per 100,000 and after several weeks of the “stupidity of reopening their economy slowly” has NOT evidenced those dire predictions; Texas’s, two deaths per 100,000; and Florida’s, four deaths per 100,000, despite its elderly population. An MSNBC pundit gleefully predicted several weeks ago that Missouri would succumb because it had not halted its economy soon enough. Its virus death rate stands at four deaths per 100,000.

For further perspective on those state rates, the death rate of flu and pneumonia in 2018 was 14.4 per 100,000, for kidney disease, it was 13 per 100,000, and for diabetes, it was 21.4 per 100,000. In other words, most of the country has suffered a toll from coronavirus that is markedly lower than the annual deaths from the flu and a host of other ailments.

Nursing homes are ground zero for the disease since their populations are exclusively the elderly infirm. Twenty-three percent of all coronavirus deaths nationwide were in nursing homes, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis. In Minnesota, 73 percent of total deaths were linked to long-term care facilities. In Massachusetts, 55 percent of all deaths were in such facilities.

To cancel most of the country’s economy for a problem, however tragic, that is highly localized was a devastating policy blunder that must be immediately corrected. The lockdowns are setting fires to everything that makes human existence both possible and meaningful. Lives are being lost to the overreaction. Heart attack and stroke victims shrink from calling 911, so they don’t burden hospitals now dedicated exclusively to COVID-19 cases. People with Cancer have had their stem cell transplants put on hold; heart surgeries are being postponed indefinitely. The cancellation of “nonessential” procedures has prevented the diagnosis of life-threatening diseases. Tumors and potentially deadly brain aneurysms are going undetected. Drug abuse deaths from economic despair and isolation are already rising, as data out of Ohio suggests. The United Nations predicts tens of millions more lives globally, stunted by extreme poverty and hundreds of thousands of childhood deaths.

Summary

What’s going on in the messaging of Healthcare officials and many politicians? Purposeful creation and perpetuation of FEAR. Think about this: every example of countries throughout history falling to pieces lies prey to someone or some group of people who sow fear in the populace. Why do they do that? Human beings from every country on Earth have one thing in common: fear. Evil people, despots, dictators, and conquering marauders know that seeding a battle, war, or political coup d’état with fear gives the insurgents power over the people they are attacking. Fear most often is used quietly and kept hidden. Details of the unknown keep the fires of fear burning brightly.

But isn’t that what this is all about? Daily we hear the stories that tell us that COVID-19 mortality numbers have been way too high from the beginning, that infections have been low because of the numbers of tests given, and when tests are given in large numbers the cases of COVID-19 drop significantly when put in the context of the number of infections. Those are pretty good things to know when keeping 330 million citizens informed, don’t you think?

Sadly, we may be too late to stop the devastation. More people will certainly die from COVID-19. But the numbers which have been artificially inflated by many healthcare officials to make this pandemic seem a real pandemic are NOT going to increase rapidly. Few will honestly state the truth of this, but I will: when the dust settles, we will know that COVID-19 has been devastating to one demographic of people. You already know who comprises it: elderly with comorbidity. In other words, they have additional serious medical conditions. Remove the numbers from that segment along with all the FAKE numbers added at the advice of the CDC to purposely INFLATE mortality rates, and we’ll all suddenly realize: this has been just a slightly above normal flu season!

And for that to be used to add to fear to weaponize the political climate around the world is a travesty and a fraud against billions of people!

You just can’t make this up!

Stimulus or “Porkulus?”

The adage “Never let a crisis go to waste” certainly rings true today. Tax-and-spend Democrats have ramped up their cries for more money — MUCH more money. It’s in the form of a new stimulus bill that could be on its way through Congress by the end of the week, as House Democrats on Tuesday announced plans for $3 trillion in new spending to combat the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new $3 trillion Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act (HEROES Act) would nearly double the $3.6 trillion in stimulus spending already approved by Congress since mid-March—and that’s after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D–CA) stripped out about $1 trillion in additional spending requested by various lawmakers, according to Politico. The new bill includes another round of stimulus checks for all Americans, funds further coronavirus testing, and spends billions to bail out states and government agencies straining under pension debt and the collapse of tax revenue due to the coronavirus.

As it looks today, it would blow-by the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Recovery Act (CARES Act), passed in late March, as the largest stimulus spending bill in U.S. history. The Treasury has already borrowed more than $3 trillion in just three months, and the new proposal will undoubtedly add to that total.

The draft of the bill released Tuesday includes a $25 billion bailout for the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service, which could lose as much as $13 billion this year and is on a fiscally unsustainable path.

The HEROES Act also contains $540 billion in aid for states and $375 billion for local governments. That’s in addition to the $150 billion relief fund for states established by an earlier stimulus bill.

The bill also includes another round of stimulus checks for all Americans, with payments capped at $1,200 for individuals and another $1,200 per dependent, with a maximum of three dependents allowed. Those payments will be means-tested in a similar way as were earlier payments authorized by the CARES Act. The HEROES Act also incorporates a Democratic proposal to provide $100 billion in new funding to a Housing and Urban Development program offering assistance to renters.

The 1,800-page bill would also extend the federal unemployment payments authorized by the CARES act through January 2021. Those extra $600 in weekly unemployment payments are meant to soften the blow for laid-off workers at a time when the unemployment rate has spiked to 14 percent and is likely to go higher. But the added unemployment payments are also expected to make reopening the economy more difficult, as workers may be hesitant to return to their jobs as long as the boosted benefits remain available.

The HEROES Act also includes some provisions that seem unrelated to the public health and economic crises unleashed by the pandemic, like a provision that would temporarily reinstate the state and local income tax deduction — known as the SALT deduction. That deduction, which primarily benefits wealthy people who live in states and localities with high taxes, was capped by the 2017 federal tax reform law. Restoring the reduction has been on Democratic to-do lists ever since.

The omnibus bill also includes a provision giving marijuana-based businesses greater access to banking. To some, that’s a worthwhile (and long-awaited) measure, but another thing that seems disconnected from the stated purpose of the HEROES Act.

In some ways, however, the HEROES Act is already looking like a return to some sense of normalcy in Congress — though “normal” is nothing too great when it comes to congressional spending. The bill has already drawn more opposition than the first three rounds of coronavirus stimulus, which passed quickly and with only token resistance, and is likely to be subject to significant negotiation and rewriting before it is passed.

The Postal Service bailout is one point of controversy, for sure, with the White House and Republican lawmakers opposing a similar plan in earlier rounds of coronavirus stimulus. The timing of the new bill has also been questioned by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R–KY), who on Monday said Congress needed to give the previous stimulus spending more time to have an impact.

McConnell has also expressed worry over the mounting levels of debt. “We now have a debt the size of our economy,” McConnell said Monday. “We have to take a pause here and take a look at what we’ve done.”

Republicans have mostly abandoned fiscal conservatism since President Donald Trump took office, but the prospect of borrowing another $3 trillion right now might get those anti-deficit spenders fired up again.

When asked about McConnell’s comments, Pelosi told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Monday night that waiting was not an option.

“We have to put money in the pockets of the American people, recognizing the pain, the agony that they are feeling,” she said. “To those who would suggest a pause, I’ll say the hunger doesn’t take a pause. The rent doesn’t take a pause.”

The passage of another significant spending bill to respond to the economic crisis created by the pandemic seems almost inevitable. If not by the end of this week, then it will probably happen sometime shortly. The failure of lawmakers to use the economic boom of the past decade to fix America’s fiscal problems — the national debt, the Post Office, state pension systems, and so on — has never seemed more foolish. And foolish is putting it nicely.

Let’s look at this new spending plan in the context of what is happening today. Indeed, Democrats are using the Coronavirus Pandemic as the basis to tag to the nation’s $20 Trillion+ debt with another two to three trillion dollars. And if you think they plan to spend it wisely specifically (and only) to soften the bite Coronavirus has taken out America, you are sadly mistaken.

If you remember correctly, we at TruthNewsNetwork were the first to do the deep dive into the minute details of the CARES ACT. We brought to you proof and details of the billions of dollars Pelosi demanded in her first draft, some of which was removed by the Senate. Not nearly enough was removed. Who will ever forget and forgive the “poster-child” example of pork Pelosi forced on us to pay as part of that bill that was supposed to be for Coronavirus assistance: $25 billion for the Kennedy Center. And to make it worse, the next day, the Kennedy Center notified their musicians the next Friday would be their last paychecks. And then they laid-off 400 employees! Pelosi states that this bill will be “exclusively” for assistance to all those who have been negatively impacted by this pandemic.”

What’s In the “Heroes Act?”

That’s a simple one. Just take a look for yourself. Here’s the link so you can download and look at it during your coffee break today. It’s only 1800 pages long!

https://truthnewsnet.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/New-Stimulus-Bill.pdf

By tomorrow’s story, we’ll have dived into the middle of this package and ferreted out the “good” and the “bad” for you. Though there no doubt will have features specifically targeted for the American people, businesses, and states who have all struggled because of the economic shutdown (the UNNECESSARY economic shutdown), you can rest assured it if full of pork. And, it includes the authorization for vote-by-mail. Don’t be shocked: Pelosi said: “any House bill offered this year will demand vote-by-mail to be approved.”

First Glance Problems

  • If passed and signed into law as-is, this will be the largest stimulus bill in U.S. history. When you tag its price tag to that of the already $3 Trillion CARES Act and other smaller relief packages, the U.S. will, in less than eight months, added $7 Trillion to the nation’s debt.
  • The bill will pass the House without using the bill-passage normal process. What’s the problem with this? Americans expect lawmakers to fully investigate every piece of legislation through committees and even subcommittees. Each takes plenty of time to find out what is in and behind every piece of legislation before it goes to the full house or Senate for deliberation there. In a bill this size, there would be multiple amendments proposed first in committees and subcommittees. Each of those committees would, once their changes are finalized, vote to move it forward or to table it. If it started in a subcommittee, it would then go to the full committee, which would then conduct the SAME process as the subcommittee did. Only after that committee passes it forward would it go to the floor of the House for consideration. There it would go through the same process! Then and only then would it go on for a vote. Whew! That’s tough. But what it does is assure Americans our legislators considered every little item to make sure it is necessary and appropriate as finalized to serve Americans as best as possible.
  • Pelosi will demand this process be suspended for “the emergency status in which we find ourselves. We cannot make the American people wait while Republicans fight to keep money from all those Americans who are fighting for rent and food for their families!” That’s the way she operates. Remember when Obamacare was before the House, and she was asked what was in the bill? She famously responded, “We must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in the bill.” That without question is the craziest statement I’ve ever heard a member of the American government utter. And, by the way, both the House and Senate passed the ACA with unanimous votes of their party members without a single member having read the bill! And if she can, she’ll do the same thing with this bill. Americans’ only hope is that the Senate will turn away any such bill.

Summary

It’s a war, folks! If you listened to our show yesterday, Dr. Judy Mikovich, in an hour-and-a-half, gave us piece by piece exactly what is going on with this pandemic. To boil down her extensive and detailed and learned analysis of it all, it’s a hoax! She never said people are not dying and that the infection is in any way a fraud, she made it clear that the way its presence is being manipulated to control Americans, our economy, and our healthcare system is fraudulent. In my book, that makes it a war.

So what can we do? This is the time where each of us needs to make a concerted commitment to learning the complete details of this Heroes Act headed to Congress. We MUST become so familiar with its basic terms that we can and will reach out to our elected officials to make sure they know our support or lack of support for all or any of the provisions of this bill. Folks, if we don’t let them know, many of those 535 members of Congress will assume we just don’t care. And that certainly is not factual.

We will once again do the deep dive into these 1800 pages of the Heroes Act and will come back shortly with them in bullet point format for you. However, I suggest you already contact your members of Congress and let them know your displeasure with the massive spending they are doing while forcing our nation through economic blackmail to put 33 million out of work supposedly because of Coronavirus.

It’s war, folks…all-out war. And we’re all IN the fight whether we want to be or not.

This is the time when we discover who are patriots and who are committed to the lawful operation of our government, specifically for United States citizens. That’s what they are supposed to do: period.

Meet Dr. Judy Mikovits

Today on TNN Live starting at 9:00 AM Central, you will meet Dr. Judy Mikovits. She will be with us live. It’s two hours you do NOT want to miss.

I have listed below all the “good” things — “truthful” things — about Dr. Mikovits. You can do an internet search for yourself to read the other side of things created, published, and perpetuated by the Mainstream Media. And much of it is NOT complimentary.

Question: Why is that?

Answer: Because the power junkies on the Left do NOT want her scientific accomplishments in various immunological fields presented to the American public. So they do what they always do when someone will not cave to their whims and political partisanship: they ATTACK! And you will se that there attacks on Dr. Mikovits have been relentless and devastating: even jail!

Who are these evil people who have perpetrated these hoaxes about Dr. Judy and her work? Some of the people who are at the forefront of virology, vaccines, and immunology.

Today we have unfettered access to ask her any question we want. And we WILL exercise that access. You will NOT hear any softballs. We will push as TruthNewsNetwork always does to get to the truth that is always based on facts.

Your days are critical to you. We know you’re very busy. But with COVID-19 destroying most if not all of your good things in life, don’t you owe it to yourself and your family to take an hour or two to listen to and discover the facts about this horror movie in which we all find ourselves?

That is easily answered.

Though you’ll get the opportunity to meet and listen to her tell her story, answer our questions, and discuss the realities of COVID-19, its origins, its sources, and who is involved in this process to find medicine that can destroy it, we want you to take what you hear and find for yourselves (and confirm) all she says.

I’ve done that. I’ve had the opportunity to read her new book. It’s mind boggling!

Make sure you’re here at 9:00 AM Central, click on the blue horizontal banner on the right side of the top of our homepage that says “Listen Live.” You will go right to our interview live with Dr. Judy. In the interim, here’s the background of this amazing doctor.

Dr. Judy

Dr Judy Mikovits has a Ph.D. in molecular biology and biochemistry with over 30 years of experience. She has directed programs on HIV, cancer, epigenetics and neuroimmune disease with a focus on the development of novel drug and diagnostic technologies.

In 2011 when she made a horrifying discovery that was contaminating all vaccinations, she presented her data to government officials and was threatened and told to destroy all her data. When she did not, she was jailed, her career systematically destroyed, and a gag order put in place for four years threatening that if she spoke out she would be thrown back in jail.

The gag order has been lifted and now she’s talking.

In this interview, she will share insight into: 

  • The release of the coronavirus in China 
  • The impact that this double strained RNA virus has on the body
  • Whether US citizens should be concerned about exposure
  • the ONE THING YOU SHOULDN’T DO out of fear of the virus
  • and many resources to help you create a confident immune system 

Dr. Mikovits has written a revolutionary book called Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases.” The book details the discovery and consequences of retroviruses in vaccines and their effects on current health issues.  She also has  a new book,  Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science

Dr. Judy Mikovits was instrumental in our fight against HIV. She earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University in 1992.

At National Cancer Institute she developed purification methods for Interferon alpha used in the first immune therapy treatment for hairy cell leukemia in 1986. In 1986-7 she developed production methods to insure biological materials manufactured using human blood products were free of contamination from HIV-1. Her Ph.D. thesis changed the paradigm for the therapeutic treatment of HIV.

Her pioneering work during a twenty-year career at the National Cancer Institute includes the discovery of the modulation of DNA Methylation machinery by human retroviral infection and the development of the concept of inflammatory cytokinesand chemokine signatures of infection and disease. Therapies that are still standard of care twenty five years later and credited with saving millions of deaths from HIV/AIDS. In 2001, she moved back to the industry where she directed the Cancer Biology program of EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals.

In 2009, Drs. Ruscetti and Mikovits’ labs isolated for the first time a new family of human retroviruses then identified as XMRV. In 2012 it was learned XMRV was a contaminant of the Silverman lab and the XMRVs isolated were a new human exogenous and transmissible retrovirus family, which are strongly associated with neuroimmune disease and cancer. Dr. Mikovits has co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters of the book “Plague”.

Summary

As we all try to puzzle through these purposely hidden elements of the COVID-19 pandemic, shelter-in-place, social distancing, and slamming shut the jobs of 33 million Americans, we all need to remember one thing. Many of us feel much of the ancillary actions taken by our government during this pandemic — specifically shutting-down the American economy — was initiated and implemented by some one or some ones with extreme political power for one purpose and one purpose only: intensify their political power over Americans while destroying any opportunity for there to be a second Donald Trump term in office.

Why would they do such a thing? What is the advantage for some to do that?

I’ll answer by saying this: a long time ago, someone much smarter and wiser than I make a profound declaration about people: “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

Money is NOT evil. What some people want to use money for often IS evil. And money creates more often than we can imagine trouble for people that quite often are fatal.

In this pandemic, today as you listen to Dr. Mikovits and me do this: “Follow the Money.”

How Committed Are Leftist Americans To Keeping the U.S. Shutdown?

We haven’t yet determined the exact desired endgame the Leftists in media, and the government are driving for. But it is certainly clear now that there ARE specific purposes coupled with coordinated plans and particular operations to do just that: shut down the U.S. economy. There are far too many “coincidences” occurring for it to be anything but that. Want some examples?

“Big Daddy” Policeman Digging Enforcement

Leftists love to attack law enforcement and revel when they see police officers abuse their power — especially when those instances are caught by a bystander and published in social media. They want all in the world to know just how supportive of the common man they are and how they always stand between those nasty police officers, Border Patrol agents, state troopers and even the FBI and John American. That was BEFORE COVID-19!

It’s almost as if someone went to Baskin Robbins and brought back gallons of each version of its products.  And when you’ve got would-be tin-pot dictators from New Jersey to California to Virginia to ‘Governor Karen’ ‘saving lives’ by stopping would-be home gardeners from planting seeds up in Michigan, there’s no shortage of THOSE to go around. Pre-COVID, who would have ever dreamed that from a civil liberties standpoint, things could go downhill this fast and in so many ways? People are getting arrested for going to church, taking walks on the beach, picketing abortion clinics, and even protesting the policies of their own government. Sure, it seems sick to us regular folks, but stuff like this is what leftists live for.

“Hey Mister, Want a Dollar?”

Leftists have never seen a dollar, a million dollars, a billion or a trillion dollars that they can’t spend — quickly! They’ve been able to wrestle control of about $3 trillion taxpayer bucks away from Trump’s U.S. Treasury straight into the hands of Americans, all the while taking credit for giving voters money just because they’re breathing. Spending money has never been difficult for Leftists. And through the fear of an economic pandemic together with the COVID-19 infections, they have effectively parlayed their all-consuming objective to control the dollars and cents of ALL Americans to become puppeteers. They knew that when they floated the trial balloon of government shutdowns it would be impossible to sell that concept to Americans without a fistful of dollars. That gave Nancy and Chuck an idea: let’s seed our control doctrine with money: not OUR money, but THEIR money. “Let’s let ’em take a few days off on us!” There’s no way the left doesn’t win long-term when money like that goes out the door that fast.

“Shame on You!”

I watched as a hairdresser who owns a shop in North Dallas stood before a judge for her egregious wrongs: she had determined to — four days ahead of the “state schedule” — re-open her beauty shop. The law came after her with a vengeance! First, with a cease and desist order. She may have messed-up when she tore up that order on live television at a “lockdown” test. The judge was going to pop her for tearing up the cease and desist order but gave her one last chance IF she would apologize. She then told the judge: “Your Honor, I cannot apologize for doing something that was not wrong. I cannot apologize for feeding my kids!” He ordered her to serve seven days in jail and a fine.

This is America! One would expect empathy from a judge, especially for something like this. Nope. She’s going to do the time and pay the fine. If that judge happened to be a Republican, the Left would have by now broadcasted every detail of his life they could find and would probably event an evil thing or two with which to brand him. We’d know anything wrong that he was doing or had ever done, that’s for sure. Leftists WILL stand for someone in tough situations, but only if they can easily find a way to paint the picture that THEY are kind, understanding, giving and sympathetic to average Americans and their plights. Republicans don’t care! And never have more opportunities existed for that than the recent trend of COVID-shaming people for daring to want to keep their children fed and a roof over their heads. If you’ve got to pretend to care about lives, caring about those taken by this virus allows them to look virtuous and still live out their evil dreams, knowing full well that the economic devastation that’s to come will kill far more than coronavirus ever would have.

Watching Everyday “Joe’s” Suffering

Ordinary Americans are nowhere near worthy of being considered valuable in any way to the Left. Their sole worth is wrapped up in one thing only: their vote. Hillary put them all in her basket of deplorables: “deserving censure or contempt.” To them, deplorables deserve any terrible thing that happens to them, just because they are deplorables. Most leftists hate most everyday Americans, especially if they’re conservative. In their eyes, the more bad things that happen to the deplorables, the happier are Leftists. Leftists think deplorables should give no thought to losing their jobs, their homes, their cars because of COVID-19’s requirement that we all just sit down and wait. After all, that’s what good Americans do. Why? Because the elites know more than deplorables and elites maintain that lockdowns are the right thing to do.

They’ll hold on to that concept, but only as long THEY can maintain their standard of living while being locked down themselves in the comfort of their large estate in northern California or their massive townhouse in Washington, D.C. It’s sort of fun to watch the deplorables worry about little unimportant things.

Holding onto Hope to Beat Donald Trump

While Congress is “fighting” this overblown pandemic from the safety of its members’ home offices, they aren’t in session getting things done for the American people, and Trump appointees and judges aren’t being confirmed either. Indeed, the Senate went back in session this week, but little can be done other than confirmation hearings. That plays perfectly into their BIG objective: “Get Rid of Trump!” They have been, can now and will continue to use every element of COVID-19, real or unreal, to discredit Trump and all of his accomplishments as President — few if any for which they gave him credit. If he single-handedly found a cure for cancer tomorrow, by the end of the next day, they would be holding a House vote on impeachment articles against him for inventing cancer so that he could find the cure and take credit for it!

It’s that stupid out there.

They MUST run the ship; they MUST keep the economy shut down as long as possible while brain-washing Americans to believe everything Leftists say about COVID-19 and its numerous ways to sneak into our lives and kill us while we’re asleep.

Sadly, in doing so, they are willing to bankrupt the nation.

Why on earth would the left EVER want to get America back to work? Most of those leftist power brokers are politicians with cush jobs or cush jobs awarded them by politicians. It will not impact them economically at their level. But it will destroy average working-class Americans they KNOW are Trump supporters. That’s all that matters to them: “Dump Trump.”

They don’t care about saving even one life by staying closed. Forget about what they “say.” Concentrate on what they “do.” What they are doing is plotting a path to regain control of the House while keeping the Senate in November. Of course, they want the White House as well.

Their Plan

They’ll do anything to perpetuate all that’s necessary to blind the public to the truths of COVID-19. They’ll even create fake news reports that bolster their claims that “if Americans leave their homes, go back to work or church, venture out into the streets, grocery stores, theaters, or to the dry cleaners someone’s going to die!”

They’ll even go so far is faking COVID-19 drive-in testing for CBS to make it appear that “thousands of Americans are waiting in line just to be tested to make sure they’re still O.K.”

CBS did it in Michigan. One hospital’s workers created a fake scenario for a CBS report that aired, showing several cars in line for the testing. Project Veritas was tipped the charade was happening and documented it for you.

Summary

Every day more rabid and desperate news stories attack any thought for any state to abandon conventional wisdom and put their economies back in business. Almost every media source identified as “left” or “leaning-left” are rushing to press to remind Americans of the certain death to everyone who lives in North America “if” we re-open the government and each state’s economy:

(Associated Press) `If this thing boomerangs’: Second wave of infections feared

“We’re risking a backslide that will be intolerable,” said Dr. Ian Lipkin of Columbia University’s Center for Infection and Immunity.

New York City Mayor DeBlasio: “My message to the rest of the country is to learn from how much effort, how much discipline it took to finally bring these numbers down and follow the same path until you’re sure that it’s being beaten back,” he said on CNN, “or else if this thing boomerangs, you’re putting off any kind of restart or recovery a hell of a lot longer.”

“If we relax these measures without having the proper public health safeguards in place, we can expect many more cases and, unfortunately, more deaths,” said Josh Michaud, associate director of global health policy with the Kaiser Family Foundation in Washington.

Each of the above headlines came from the same news article!

Isn’t it obvious that the Left are consciously crying loudly to not reopen our states?

Why?
