ZERO COVID – The Insanity Continues: Beware the Dangerous Water Ahead!

Angry Wet ChickenNews headlines with Fauci included this gem, “We will not let up until COVID is no longer a viral infection.”  Seriously?!?!?!  If that is the goal, why has that not been the case with Chickenpox, Ebola, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Spanish Flu, ZIKA, and the list of viral diseases goes on and on!

Here are a few more gems on COVID:

      • On Monday, Biden pressed private industry to mandate vaccination, stating, “Do what I did last month, require your employees to get vaccinated or face strict requirements.”
      • Anthony Fauci told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “I respect people’s freedom, but when you’re talking about a public health crisis … the time has come, enough is enough. We’ve just got to get people vaccinated.”
      • Anthony Fauci announced on MSNBC that everyone should mask, vaccinated or unvaccinated: “Instead of worrying what kind of mask, just wear a mask. Wear a surgical mask, a cloth mask … We need to wear masks.” Biden went further, extending his push for masks to small children: “You have the tools to keep your child safer … make sure that your child is masked when they leave home.”

How hard is it to keep a child in a mask; almost near impossible!  The science is in; take any mask; if you can fog your glasses, then the mask is ineffective at stopping the micron level of COVID. The most straightforward test I know to see if a mask might or might not protect you against COVID.  If the mask doesn’t protect you, guess what?  Wearing that mask is only making problems worse, not better.

Now, let’s talk Delta-Variant, Science, and COVID recent infections.  A friend of mine works in a hospital in Ohio.  Out of 100 patients seen who had contracted COVID in the first couple weeks of August, 99 had been vaccinated, wore a mask religiously, and followed every one of the CDC guidelines for social distancing and COVID living.  The one exception caught the flu, and the flu became COVID through exposure.  I mention this not to paint the entire globe with the same brush but to reflect a truth science has been screaming.  When you vaccinate against viral diseases, those vaccinated become a target for mutant strains, and the vaccine might or might not help prevent the mutant strains from making a person sick.Gravy Train

Straight science found in every viral disease paper I have read and researched.  Take a moment, read, and then compare the hysteria of COVID to every other viral infection on the planet and ask questions.  Polio is considered “eradicated,” polio as a virus is still alive and well; we just have really superior vaccines against polio infections.  Chickenpox, mumps, measles, and rubella are common viral diseases children get vaccinated against; the diseases are not dead; we have developed vaccines and spent decades researching the daylights of these diseases and their mutant strains to understand the diseases and improve the vaccines.

From the CDC, we find the following:

      • “The best way to prevent chickenpox is to get the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox used to be very common in the United States.  In the early 1990s, an average of 4 million people got chickenpox, 10,500 to 13,000 were hospitalized, and 100 to 150 died each year.  Chickenpox vaccine became available in the United States in 1995.”Question 2
      • “Hilleman’s mumps vaccine was then used in the combination measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, which was licensed in 1971. The rubella component of the vaccine was changed in 1979, but in the United States, the mumps and measles vaccine viruses have remained the same since 1971.”… “Reported cases decreased by more than 99% after both the mumps vaccination program started in the US in 1967 and children regularly received two doses of MMR vaccine.”Question 3
      • No vaccine, and since 2019, no confirmed cases of Zika Virus have been reported in the US or its territories. Remember back in 2014 through 2016, all the pandemic emergencies, the executive actions, the mandates issued by President Obama to “flatten the curve” and “protect our hospital infrastructure” over Zika related viral infections.  Neither do I; in fact, Obama could not even stop playing golf to be bothered to discuss Zika.

Mosquito

      • “The (H1N1)pdm09 virus (Swine Flu – 2009) was very different from H1N1 viruses that were circulating at the time of the pandemic. Few young people had any existing immunity (as detected by antibody response) to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus. Nearly one-third of people over 60 years old had antibodies against this virus, likely from exposure to an older H1N1 virus earlier in their lives.”  Swine flu has a vaccine, but that pandemic did not require mask mandates or include fear for hospital infrastructure and a refusal to practice common sense medicine.  The swine flu virus, H1N1, may have killed 15 times the number of people counted by the World Health Organization.  The H1N1 pandemic struck down primarily young people, many living in Africa and Southeast Asia.  Beginning in 2009, the virus swept the globe and the WHO counted 18,500 swine flu deaths that laboratory tests had confirmed. But according to new estimates from researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus probably killed between 105,700 and 400,000 people around the world in its first year alone, and an additional 46,000 to 179,000 people likely died of cardiovascular complications from the virus.”

Motivation and COVID

Tom Clancy uses the acronym MICE or Money, Ideology, Coercion, and Ego, as the reasons to describe why people become spies.  Except, this acronym also applies to why people act in an anathema manner to common sense, good social order, and proper discipline.  A friend and I discussed COVID and the government tyranny; the political models do not fit since President Trump was defeated.  Economic models do not match actions and reasons for taking more steps.  Social and psychological models do not include the activities of the actors driving the COVID mandates and hysteria.  Science has been utterly rejected, twisted, and destroyed.  Medicine is being twisted and destroyed.Lemmings 1

It wasn’t until MICE came along in the conversation as primary motivating forces that logic started to appear; now, I am not fully cognizant of what was seen in that brief flash, but what I saw, I will describe.

      • Money – There are TONS of cash involved in COVID-Mandates, masking mandates, vaccination mandates, and so forth. Literally, you could take the money and count it by weighing the money by the ton!  Thus money’s influence and motivation cannot be discounted, and following the money is critical to understanding why the COVID virus has to be eradicated before the pandemic can end.
      • Ideology – Unless the ideology is to wipe out populations, such as the elderly and infirm, then I do not think ideology can be a motivating influence or at least a primary motivating force in COVID and the government and media actions.
      • Coercion – Tyrants have always wanted to coerce large populations. As a primary motivating force, coercion cannot be discounted nor eliminated.  Worse, When viewed through the lens of coercion to force people to do as told for personal power and enjoyment, coercion has plenty of solid arguments as a primary force for motivating governments and political leaders to act as they have and continue the pandemic “emergency” as long as possible.
      • Ego – Of all the primary motivating forces, ego fits the best after coercion and before money. Why; because of Fauci!  Here is a practical nobody vaulted into the public limelight and only remains popular as long as the pandemic kills people.  How many other research scientists have been treated similarly, throwing out the first pitch of a baseball season, actively sought for TV interviews, on speed dial by the politically connected and powerful elite.  Oh yes, ego has a role in motivating the pandemic to continue as long as possible!

Lemmings 5Motivation is the reason why people act.  Logic is the reasoning and is generally fully understood after the action was taken; but the motivation to act, the impulses that drive us to our feet giving us the energy to act in a specific direction, exerting our will, minds, hearts, and souls towards a goal, can generally be deduced through MICE.  Therein lay both the power and the tragedy of human relations.  Therein also lay the pattern for understanding why people act one way, and a person will act differently.  The influence of groupthink is too strong for individual voices to counter, and people go along with stuff they would typically abhor personally but accept as a group.

Are there people involved in COVID who are the sons of Mary; probably.  Are there those involved in COVID purely for the perceived health emergency and nothing else; this is also statistically probable.  Yet, for all these potential anomalies, the vast majority of those pushing the COVID pandemic and health emergency are in it for the money, the ideology, because they have always wanted to play “Storm Trooper” and force people to accept their rule, or simply because of the pleasure of having their egos stroked.

Knowledge Check!One thing every citizen of a representative government should know by now, tyranny has many faces, multiple names, but only one result.  The death of liberty too often in world history has been accompanied, not by the crash and thunder of conquering armies, but the applause of the deceived masses.  Well, COVID and this “health emergency,” “pandemic,” “global crisis,” is but one of tyranny’s names, and liberty is dying a slow and horrible death.

Dollars and Sense – Inflationary Spending and Fiscal Insanity

Bobblehead DollThese articles have discussed money, monetary policy, fiscal sanity, and government spending several times this year.  Some have called me alarmist for raising fiscal sanity during a “Global Health Crisis.”  While COVID-19 (Sars-COV-2) is undoubtedly a viral disease with a 98%+ survival rate, I cannot in good conscience call this a “Global Health Crisis.”  The pandemic declaration was a political move, the mask mandating, business closures, and every other hysterical move have been carefully formulated to present a problem where none exists.  Has Sars-COV-2 mutated; absolutely, but the emotional hysteria has mutated far faster.

Dollars and SenseApathy

When you pass paper to a store clerk, are you spending money; no, you are spending confidence.  Your confidence in the dollar’s strength, as represented by a check, cash, money order, credit card, etc., is what is being spent.  Why was the Great Depression so lasting and detrimental; a lack of confidence in the US Dollar.  People who saved their money formed sane fiscal policies personally and acted logically lost their confidence in the US Dollar, and the dollar went into a great depression.

Since President Clinton, the US Government has been on a drunken spending spree and does not appear to be stopping unless the citizens demand they cease and desist!  What does this mean for you and me; everything costs more for two reasons inflation and interest.  When the government prints money, too much money increases prices, and too few goods chase too much money, resulting in people suffering.  When the government borrows money, the interest must be serviced; the interest will increase prices and usually absorb some of the extra capital on the market to bring down inflation.Lemmings 2

Except, Quantitative Easing (QE) is hindering the absorption of money on the market.  Hence America is witnessing something truly remarkable for the first time in financial history, the debt (principal), the interest, and the extra capital, all of these storms are combining into a major conflagration economically speaking.  Usually, at this point, a country begins to look for a place to go to war, which explains China and its expansionist policies in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean.  Too much debt, too much interest, a military needing worked, and assets need to be stolen from other countries.  Typical historical thinking, war truly is grand larceny on a massive scale!

Where are America and China headed; let’s ask Czarist Russia, USSR, Nazi Germany, East Germany, China, North Korea, Italy, Venezuela, Greece, France, and who knows how many other economically unstable countries historically and presently.  Going to war will not solve this economic crisis, though some may try that solution.  The only solution worth advancing at this critical juncture economically is reducing the size of government, placing a firm halt on all government spending, and refusing the politicians to get into debt for at least two decades!  Yes, this means changing Social Security, Welfare, Medicaid and Medicare, and every other government benefit program to fit a reduced budget and smaller government model.  Failure to tighten belts for the next two decades will bankrupt America, and most of the world, making the Great Depression look like a summer picnic.Lemmings 4

Gold and Oil, real estate, Gross Domestic Products (the goods manufactured in America for sale), trade, all of these wealth tools and more cannot support the debt incurred, the money printed, nor the size of the government from the city and county to the White House.  As this trend continues, Wall Street will continue to be tumultuous, at best, and the confidence in the US Dollar will continue to slide.  But, as the dollar slides, which global currency will begin to take up the slack?

The Euro has discredited itself and is not worth the paper it is printed on.  China thinks they will step into the void and take up the slack with the Yuan, except their financial situation is almost as bad as Venezuela’s and Cuba’s, but their size and government type keep this hidden from the public.  Even though the Yuan is in junk status, the Communist government hides these facts; the truth is leaking out in higher trade tariffs and other global trade and finance costs.  Russia’s economic situation still has not stabilized with the fall of the USSR and will probably need another two to three decades until it can compete on the global economy again.Gravy Train 2

I heard a postulation that the Arabian Oil Rich nations of the Middle East would produce an OPEC-backed currency if the US Dollar fails.  I highly doubt this as a solution, but the potential is there.  Another person claimed the lack of confidence in the US Dollar would lead to the World Bank/International Monetary Fund (IMF) issuing currency for the world; boy, would that be a significant problem!  Yet, the American Dollar is being purposefully destroyed by the current crop of politicians, and nobody is standing up and declaring ENOUGH!

Inflation

The US Government, and many others globally, have increased their drunken spending since Jan/Feb 2020 to incredibly extensive levels and used a “Global Health Crisis” as the excuse.  Except when Ebola was sweeping the world, we did not have this level of insane spending and government intrusion.  Ebola is far deadlier, easier to spread, and yet the Ebola disaster is barely remembered.  Bird Flu, Swine Flu, SARS, MERS, all these viruses have had their time in the media hysterical spotlight, every single one of them is deadlier than Sars-COV-2, easier to spread, and they were never a cause for a global pandemic.Gravy Train

Inflation is caused by poor economic policy, where the government grants itself the ability to print money.  Inflation is not just money and monetary policy; inflation is also confidence, faith, and trust.  Inflation is how the government acts, thinks, and behaves.  Inflation is as real as COVID-19 and just as deadly as Ebola while being more problematic for everyone.  From Dec 2020 to the end of July 2021, inflation has increased the price of goods and services by 3.8%, seasonally adjusted, or 5.4% non-seasonally adjusted, which means that prices go up as a seasonal adjustment in the summer.

Fiscal Insanity

Consider with me an analogy; you live in a community of houses and pay a Homeowners Association (HOA) Fee.  Your neighbor has decided they can write checks on your checking account, and the HOA has granted them legal protection to write checks on your bank accounts.  Because your neighbor has legal protection, you sell off assets to provide the funds for your neighbor.  You sell to other neighbors letters of credit that you promise to pay interest on, provided your other neighbors hold those letters of credit for specific amounts of time.  Except, your neighbors stop buying those letters of credit over time because they do not like how your neighbor keeps writing checks and spending your money.  How do you keep this house of cards from blowing over and losing everything?

Tax BurdenAmerica is in this position right now!  Trend lines show a steady downward trend in the value of the US Dollar.  Inflation will keep increasing prices as too much money is chasing too few products on the market.  Debt needs to be serviced and interest paid.  But, when the interest payment is the only thing being paid, and the principal will also need to be serviced, where and how does the principal get serviced when the interest is absorbing all the monthly payments?  Simple economics, money once created and put into the money market, cannot just be absorbed or disappeared.  Just like food doesn’t disappear once consumed, the offal must come out and be handled responsibly.  Well, the dollar is in an offal position and needs responsibly handled!

COVID-19: The Origin Story

Knowledge Check!Please note, from the beginning of November 2019, it was clear that there was a viral disease that had upset the Government of the People’s Republic of China (China). As a result, people were getting sick, the news was being censored, journalists published, and the viral infection had started in Wuhan Province, China. So, shortly after Christmas (2019), Big-Tech began censoring the stories that had originated in November 2019 and restricting access to the truth.  Those of us who were closely following these events started to suspect things that raised concerns.  The combined actions of the media, social media, the Chinese Government, and the lackadaisical world governments raised eyebrows.  By February 2020, COVID-19 was on us, and the travel restrictions were already 90-days too late!

From February 2020 to the present, the only truth about the origins of COVID-19, beyond simply that it started in Wuhan Province, China, is pure suspicion and absolute conjecture!  However, every citizen on this planet needs to be concerned!  The Daily Signal ran an interesting article on COVID-19 that should wake every American up to the dangers President Obama’s (D) Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) promised when stating, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

Plato 2American policy on using biological, chemical, or nuclear weapons, in war or peace, the user was subject to a nuclear strike in retaliation.  President Obama (D) and his “Red Lines” in Turkey that weren’t worth spit on hot pavement changed this policy.  One of the more problematic theories put forward has been that China used COVID-19 to “Dry Run,” a bio-war weapon, and gather real-world data on how the world would respond.  I have covered the links to this in previous articles and am not repeating myself for emphasis!  This scenario is frightening in the extreme, especially since China has nuclear retaliatory strike capabilities.  Worse, China has climbed in bed with Russia and Iraq, both of whom are skilled at invading the US/Mexico border with impunity.

Should China admit the United State’s involvement in the gain of function research at the Wuhan Virological Laboratory on coronaviruses, what does this do to credibility and US Relations?  The United States halted the gain of function research on coronaviruses and other viruses.  EcoHealth Alliance, an organization taking American tax dollars, sent their research to China to keep the research going.  We have several American college laboratories with their hands in the gain of function virology research.  How much, who, when, and why all remain pure guesswork now, as much of those articles have also become “mislaid” on the Internet!  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google specifically have worked overtime scrubbing these source articles as “misleading” on COVID-19 as the official reason for censoring knowledge.  The truth will shortly come out as to how much money China invested in getting Big-Tech and Social Media into bed together and working for the PRC’s Marxist Government!Apathy

Until February 2021, I had access to several peer-reviewed sources that walked the reader through how research done in the United States was sent to Canada, Australia, Japan, and eventually to Wuhan Province, China.  Unfortunately, Big-Tech and Social Media continue to censor and scrub, and these resources have evaporated.  If you have links to these resources, please share them in the comments section.  The lock on information is as bad as the disinformation and propaganda machines of Nazi Germany where COVID is concerned, and that also should be investigated thoroughly!

Two questions hinge upon the origin of COVID:

  1. What should be the penalty?
  2. How should the penalty be delivered?

Keep a couple of thoughts in mind; China is not their Government; what responsibly do taxpayers have in representative governments who helped gain function research?  Are the people of China to pay with their lives for the actions of their detestable Government?  In a representative government, the people are where the “buck stops” when accountability and responsibility are needed.  Is the reason for taking action and getting involved in your Government clear?

Bird of PreyAmerica, I cannot stress this enough, I am not excusing the Wuhan Laboratory for their practices.  The news has reported bad freezer gaskets, trash just dumped, and thousands of other errors in operational laboratory practices that should never occur in a certified laboratory researching viral gain of function research.  I am not excusing the American Government nor EcoHealth Alliance for their roles in this COVID-Farrago.  However, the fix to recovering from and avoiding future bio-weapons being released is to be found in the capitals of the US and all her states.  The Government in America is the problem, and the solution begins with the ballot box!

NO MORE BS: COVID Mask Discrimination Policies and Your Health

Millstone of Designed IncompetenceThe Atlantic published an article well worth reading, “End the Hygiene Theater.”  To summarize, SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19’s official name) is an aerosol and does not survive in the outdoors or on surfaces.  Just like 99.9% of all viral infections.  Consider how much money the government mandates had wasted on power cleaning surfaces since August 2020 when the scientific peer-reviewed journals began publishing the science of aerosol viral fighting tips.

Angry Grizzly Bear15 April 2020 was a high watermark day for me; I was forced to go to the Sandra Day O’ Connor Federal Courthouse to fight three citations for not physically being able to wear a mask at the VA Hospital here in Phoenix.  My injury at the hands of the VA Police was not allowed as evidence; the policy that continues to hinder care at the VA Hospital was not allowed as evidence.  However, it was used frequently as an excuse, and my being erroneously declared a behavior problem at the VA was inadmissible as that is an internal policy of the VAMC.  The end result, I lost more money to pay the fines.

In the US Republic of America, you have the right and freedom to wear a mask if you choose. Suppose you desire that face diaper as a safety blanket, even though peer-reviewed science has found zero evidence that masks help; feel free to wear a mask.  Please understand that thousands of people cannot wear a mask due to medical conditions, medications, and other breathing problems, which means alternative health measures are needed.  Medical policies should never be written as one-size-fits-all.  The policies writers are discriminating and putting people’s health at risk.

ApathyAs my breathing has become more labored since my spinal injuries in 2002, at the hands of a First-Class Petty Officer, I have had to exercise more healthy options to keep myself safe.  I take vitamin supplements, including C & D, at both a medical professional’s request and my wife’s knowledge.  I drink tonic water, which has quinine in it, specifically the tonic water sold at Trader Joe’s, for it has no high-fructose corn syrup and less sugar than soda, so my diabetes does not take a hit.  I was told by my primary care provider, at the VA almost 10-years ago that quinine will help my nighttime leg cramps, it worked for me.

I am not a medical professional, and am not saying everyone will have the same benefits; the quinine in tonic water has helped me, and overtime I have experienced less sick time from common colds, flues, and other aerosol borne sicknesses.  Always discuss with your doctor the vitamins and drugs being taken, this is also your right and freedom!

Historically, quinine has been used as an anti-malarial drug, and is effective in calming muscle cramps, leg restlessness, and is a base ingredient in chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine.  “Use of chloroquine (tablets) shows favorable outcomes in humans infected with coronavirus including faster time to recovery and shorter hospital stay.  US CDC research shows that chloroquine also has strong potential as a prophylactic (preventative) measure against coronavirus.  Chloroquine is an inexpensive, globally available drug that has been in widespread human use since 1945 against malaria, autoimmune diseases, viruses, and various other conditions.”  Facts are coming from multiple peer-reviewed resources since 1950, including Dr. Fauci.

Angry Wet ChickenTo arrive at court, I had to walk more than ¼ of a mile from the closest parking spot to the 2nd floor mezzanine of the Federal Court House.  By the time I got through the US Marshall security buttress, I was completely out of breath, and the first words out of security’s mouth, “Where is your mask?”  I explained I have breathing problems, and they insisted I at least carry a mask to meet the “stringent judge mandated legal requirements for mask policies.”  Thankfully, they did not insist I wear the mask, as I would have become an emergency right then and there.

Leaving me with an incredible question, “How can the US Marshall’s in charge of security at a Federal Courthouse use common sense and keen observation and make executive decisions, but the VA Police on Federal Property cannot do the same?”

The answer to that question lies with the draconian leadership and the egos inherent in the VA.  Same Federal Policy regarding masks but applied with 180-degrees of separation.  The VA Police Officer who oversaw my asset forfeiture/remediation did not have a problem with my not wearing a mask the entire time we spoke.  We maintained 6’ of separation and conducted business like adults.  Yet, in the VAMC, this officer would have been under obligation first to arrest me, which always leads to me being injured, cite me, then kick me off the property.  All Federal Property, all handled by sworn legal officers possessing arrest authority, and we have two different outcomes.

Foghorn Leghorn - MedicationAs a point of reference, there are more than several hundred thousand people like me in America right now who have breathing conditions that preclude wearing a mask for personal health and safety.  Polio victims with lung scarring are especially susceptible to COVID and should not wear a mask.  I know veterans who are missing a lung, who struggle to breathe, they cannot access the VA for medical care; this is mask discrimination!  I know cancer patients who, due to the drugs and cancer, cannot wear a mask and cannot access the VA for cancer treatment; this is mask discrimination.  I am one of several thousand people on a steroid to help breathing problems, where a mask is warned against wearing for physical safety and personal health.  However, I am still denied VA Medical Care over the mask policy.  The list of medical conditions and breathing issues is endless. Still, the policy from the Federal VA Director’s office, supposedly, does not come with a line, “except for those with approved medical conditions.”  I claim allegedly, as I have yet to receive a copy of this mask mandate policy or find a copy anywhere online.  I have even gone so far as to use an FOIA request for the policy and never have received a response.

I asked a supervisor about the policy at the VAMC and was pointed to a marketing sign.  I asked a hospital director, in fact, the patient advocate director, and was told there is no official policy.  Because that would require writing things down, and the VA refuses to document anything for fear of reprisal and recrimination.  Also, a topic I have covered ad nauseam and ad infinitum in these articles to no avail, as an excuse for designed incompetence.

Never Give Up!Ask yourself this question, “Who is the primary person responsible for my health, myself, the media, the insurance companies, or the government?”  For how you answer that question will determine how you approach situations where your health is jeopardized.  We have programmable vaccines being passed off as a cure-all for a virus that makes up the common cold, yet people are still catching the common cold and testing negative for COVID.  We have had flu vaccines around since the 1930s, with mass vaccination campaigns since 1945; yet until COVID came along, we still had people dying from the flu every year!  By the way, an interesting fact, no one has caught the flu since February 2020; do you believe the COVID testing works?

America has witnessed years when the flu guessers guessed the wrong flu variant strain, and the flu vaccine people got was 100% ineffective.  Yet magically, this COVID vaccine comes along to end all those problems without long-term testing and in-depth research, and how many are lining up to get their COVID shot?  After getting the COVID jab, how many still are forced to live under COVID mandates?  See, the problem is not COVID; the problem is who controls your health decisions, the government, the media, the insurance companies, or you?

Non Sequitur - DecisionsThe discrimination we have been told all through school is “bad,” but the VAMC can mask discriminate against the population they are duty-bound to serve, and there are no legal consequences; where are the lawyers?  We have people who have been and are suffering from COVID-related vaccine sicknesses who lost their legal rights to sue the pharmacological manufacturer; where are the lawyers?  I would think the ACLU would be head over heels angry at this blatant abuse of people’s rights, except they are silent on these issues.  We have hundreds of thousands of veterans who cannot access their medical center, their doctors, and so forth due to a policy that isn’t a policy and are dying; where are the lawyers?

Dont Tread On MeWho controls your healthcare choices, you or the government?  I know my answer!

NO MORE BS: The Statistical Lies – COVID Version

ElectionRecently, the death toll of COVID was advertised as 500,000 dead, per CDC.  Another factoid that slipped under the radar this week, influenza deaths and cases have dropped to zero since COVID-19 government hysteria happened, also per the CDC.  Until 2020 the US could lose between 12,000 to 61,000, globally 290,000 and 650,000 deaths to the annual flu, also per the CDC.  Yet, 2020 has seen zero deaths or influenza cases.  Does something sound suspicious about these statistics?

2019, measles deaths surged with a 50% increase to 207,500.  These statistics come from the WHO.  From the CDC, we find cigarettes kill 480,000 annually in the US alone.  According to the CDC, 3,000 Americans die of foodborne illnesses.  Motor vehicle fatalities kill 1.35 Million people in the world, according to https://www.asirt.org.  According to the CDC, heart disease kills 659,041, cancer 599,601, Diabetes 87,647, yet none of these other deaths receive any of the same attention as COVID.  Why?

Detective 2Why does a virus that forms the common cold, per the CDC, get all this attention, money, and other resources?  What is so special about COVID?  Many have accurately called me heartless, cold, and distant where death is concerned.  I do not share in the emotions, actions, and social heritage where death is concerned, and the traditions surrounding a death are always morbid to me.  Hence, when we talk about death statistics, I focus more on the statistics than on the individuals, families, and communities.  Still, if COVID is a “special circumstance,” are 500,000 deaths really that tragic when we lose more people to cancer and heart disease annually?

Several political representatives filled my email inbox with marketing materials marking the 500,000 deaths to COVID, and I cannot fathom why COVID is getting the attention.  When heart disease and cancer can be fought and won, and with those being fought and won, less would suffer from viral and bacterial infections, like COVID.  Let us open one more topic for discussion where COVID deaths and statistics are concerned, veracity!

VirtueWhat is veracity?

Webster’s dictionary is spot on in their definition, “conformity to fact; accuracy; habitual truthfulness.”  Veracity is the ability to share knowledge without a bias for lies built-in.  Veracity is the key to truthfulness and long-term trust relationships and is one of the first and most glaring absences in dealing with the media, politicians, used-car salespeople, and lawyers; generally, in that order.

Questions?

How can anyone believe the statistics put forth by the CDC when motorcycle accidents where the patient died, but the hospital called the accident “COVID-related?”  There is an axiom worth knowing in computer programming, GIGO (Garbage In equals Garbage Out), which means that you get trash out for results when you put bad data into a data set.  Since February 2020, many have discussed the GIGO properties in the CDC reported deaths where COVID is concerned.  Why should we trust the veracity of CDC data sets?

blue-money-burning-2Shortly after cleaning out the marketing materials hyperventilating over the 500,000th death by COVID.  My email box filled with politicians begging for my support for “The American Rescue Plan” from COVID as being pushed by the fraudulent president and his minions.  Another $1.9 Trillion of “aid” to America, except, America does not have the money, the “Rescue Plan” does not end the government worsened health crisis, and one of the worst bill riders is to raise the American Minimum Wage to $15.00 an hour.  Why should I support legislation that will intentionally worsen the financial health of America?  Why should I support legislation where the government wants to increase the minimum wage, killing private sector employment?  Does anyone need a refresher course on how bad the $15.00 minimum wage has been to Seattle and every other place where it has been made mandatory?

Blue Money BurningWhat else is in “The American Rescue Plan” for goodies, bennies, and pay-offs that make this legislation different from any other legislation to date?  Will America be sending money to African nations to increase sunshine harvesting efforts as a global climate change initiative?  The inanity and asininity in the legislators pushing these “plans” leave me mentally breathless!  In the category of mental breathlessness, why do all these COVID-recovery bills include loan programs?  Why increase personal debt, business debt, and other debt levels, and call this a benefit?  Loans are not a benefit!  Loans are captivity and chaos, not joy and pleasure!

Here is a direct quote from one of the politicians sending marketing materials:

“To end the pandemic and get our nation healthy again, the American Rescue Plan will mount a national vaccination program to establish community vaccination sites nationwide. It will also invest $46 billion to ramp up COVID-19 testing, an initiative that will propel us forward in our fight against the virus, allow us to safely reopen schools, and get us closer to herd immunity.”

Theres more“End the pandemic,” this is a government decision that shut down and mandated to cause chaos in America and end an economic rebound.  Why not merely pass legislation declaring the pandemic over and let people get back to work?

Why are we spending another $46 Billion on testing for the common cold?  Which Big-Pharma has their hands out begging for government goodies while passing bennies back to the politicians pushing the extra funding?  Let us talk about schools reopening; because everywhere I look, the schools are reopened, students are attending class, and there has been no spike in infection rates.  Something discussed over the summer when it was discovered that children largely escaped any harm from COVID but were mentally harmed and became suicidal because of the freedom shattering “health emergency” measures taken by the government, at the behest of the hysterical media.

Detective 3Please, help me understand how a virus, inherent in the common cold, is going to help “herd immunity?”  The common cold continues to kill, regardless of herd immunity.  What exactly is in that “vaccine” that will aid in reducing the common cold?  Worse, catching one of the coronaviruses in the common cold has been found to create immunity to COVID-19 (Sar-COV-2).  Hence, why exactly is COVID-19 being treated as a “pandemic, health emergency?”  Why was a vaccine needed?  What is so “novel” about COVID-19 that every other viral disease does not have or does not create?  Why is COVID-19 being treated like a “pandemic” when measles is worse, is more easily transmitted, and possesses a higher death rate?

SARS has been around since 2002, has a mortality rate of 9.6%; no political hay was made over this viral infection.  MERS has been killing people with a mortality rate of 34.4% since 2012, no pandemic declaration, no health emergency, no massive spending bills.  2019-nCOV has a mortality rate of 2.2%.  Why is COVID-19 being treated like the worst viral disease globally, especially when H5N1 Bird Flu (1997) is still killing 52.8% of the population who catches this viral disease?  Look at the politicians who have come and gone since 1997 and tell me why other reactionary governments did not hyperventilate over their viral infection, but somehow the politicians in 2019 are allowed to overact to COVID-19 violently.

This closing passage from the political hack marketing email for “The American Rescue Plan” has me baffled.

“The hardships of this crisis cannot be overstated. So much has been lost this past year: lives, jobs, financial security, and our ability to embrace one another freely.”

Theres moreThe government created the hardships, increased the losses, ended jobs forever, ruined financial security plans for millions of people, and acted foolishly repeatedly, all while being egged on by Big-Tech, Big-Pharma, and the corporate media.  You, the government, have created a “healthcare emergency,” used your media lapdogs and a 24/7 news cycle to blow up emotional reactions in populations, and I want you to stop the madness!  End the shenanigans forthwith for your actions are atrocious, and I refuse to pay one more penny into this madness you have created from lies and emotional hyperbole!  COVID-19 represents the epitome of why every democratic society needs to reduce the size of government, regain individual rights, and declare the government a fraud!
