The Unprincipled And Incoherent Mess Of The Democrat Party

I think Donald Trump broke not only modern fake news journalism but the Democrat party as well.

2020 has been one jibber-jabber of a year. Where reason went poof-paaf.

Leaving aside the historic and epic stupidity of lockdowns that exacerbated economic turmoil with dubious results while leaving tens of millions without work - as well as the obscenely incompetent performance of Democrat Governors - the party has also abandoned any semblance of respect for the Constitution, law and order, and basic overall political ethics.

You have a fake woman of color (whose father bragged about being part of a slave owning family) who advanced her career through trampling on the downtrodden and good old fashioned patronage (swallowed whole) and a possibly increasingly mindless careerist. Sleepy Slow Joe is ready to trade yer chains for masks. No sooner did this unwholesome duo hitch up, they called for a nationwide mandated mask law and contact tracing. While they call to restrict gun rights and defund the police.

Oh. And Harris essentially called Biden a racist during the debates and thinks he's a rapist when she believed his accusers.

Democrat Mayors have allowed for rioting and burning of their cities embracing violent Marxists organizations like BLM and Antifa. On their march to defeat Trump, they're prepared to 'burn it down' like good little far left-wing loons.

The messaging of the party has been impossible to pin down. We know there's a civil war between establishment Democrats, Progressives (attached to Sanders) and a still more left-wing flank led by AOC. This has left Biden stacking his team with Sandernista economic advisors and now a law enforcement hard liner in Kamala Harris.

On one end, Biden pushes the irrational Green New Deal but promises to bring back manufacturing (the antithesis of the green plan) to America. The DNC accepts notions of defunding the police, but announces Harris as a running mate who together with Biden who authored a pro-crime agenda with Clinton in the 1990s, represent the opposite of this message.

Of course, look for them to disingenuously disavow their tough on crime past. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me Biden is all but a figure head now at this point. He's clearly not of sound mind so it looks like the Democrats are aiming for a Biden step-down in order to pave the way for the first woman of colour President.

The DNC are all about empty symbolism and identity politics and are beyond parody.

The other perplexing part of her nomination (aside from her reputation as having reached her position thanks to her relationship with a powerful California politician in Willie Brown - think of him as a Pelosi only for California. That wields a lot of power) is why a running-mate from California?

The state is blue and likely to remain blue.

Regardless, the Biden/Harris ticket is a loser one. I don't see how this galvanizes the Democrat base and anyone sitting on the fence or a registered Independent who's paying any attention is not likely to fall for this cynical option.

All told, I think Trump has done a solid job despite all the adversity he has had to face. The media and the shenanigans of the DNC has been epic in its attempt to tear him down. I do expect some voter fraud attempts as the Democrats are going to attempt one final nuclear push but it won't be enough.

The Democrats are a bunch of spazzes and loons.

Don't be surprised Trump wins in November. And possibly big.

I just can't see how anyone can for for






Tom Waits For No Pandemic



Indeed.

Contact Tracing Is The Sibling Of Nazism

Excessive compassion can be a bad thing.

I'm seeing a whole lot of it during this pandemic.

At the moment, hysteria is gripping people's minds and I'm afraid the scars will remain for the rest of their lives.

For those of us keeping a strong and healthy disposition, we can't but watch in disapproving disappointment.

Man will do what it has to do when fear dictates reason.

Politically speaking, the rhetoric and actions of public officials in dealing with the virus has been a travesty and a showcases in mental cruelty.

Sometimes I wonder if the narcissists running our affairs are only mirroring the narcissists who demand for more sado-masocistic treatment. They live in a irrational embrace.

There's no way to begin having a rational discussion. It's all empty virtue-signalling and vapid slogans all the way down. 'Wear a mask, save a life' and 'people wear seat belts and this is a small price to pay' and all that stupid line of thinking only stupid people can possibly utter.

We have politicians who treat lockdowns as if it's a viable strategy. In California, that middling moron Garcetti threatens to shut off people's water if they dare gather to party. In Wisconsin, whoever runs amok in its public institutions decided it people must wear masks on Zoom calls to set a 'good example' and 'remind' people they're in a pandemic.

It's less about science and more about control and theatre at this point.

And people continue to buy into this hideous superstition.

I heard the other day British Columbia wants to hire 500 contract tracers  Brown shirts to track people with Covid. Anyone with a grasp of Nazi German history knows how this plays out. Just replace Covid-19 with Jews.

We've already conditioned people to think healthy people (through the asymptomatic theory)they pose a danger to public threat. It's not a stretch to think contact tracing can easily result in jail time - and if things really get out of hand (and we're on that trajectory unless we reign it in) much worse.

And what harm is it doing to children? Learning to see everyone as a danger, and being trained that it’s normal to react this way to a new flu virus will inevitably psychologically impact them. If schools don't open and we continue to deprive them of activities the lack of socialization will prove the most damaging. 

We are fucking up children’s minds and their future. I feel really bad for anyone just getting out of high school now.

We taught kids a terrible lesson. And we made it worse with the masks. It infuriates me parents who put kids in masks pushing it as a faux-virtuous act. 
Adults deserve a smack across the face for projecting their fears onto kids. Public officials can rot in hell as far as I’m concern for what amounts to child abuse in my view.
Despicable.
We're handling this pandemic poorly and miserably.

Empirical Theater: When Precaution Merges With Empiricism

Let's cut to the chase.

Masks - along with social distancing - are nothing more than a non-pharmaceutical response rooted in the precautionary principle.

In the absence of hard science during a health crisis, the prevailing UNICEF motto is 'better safe than sorry' ergo the precautionary principle must prevail.

Unintended consequences be damned.

However, masks are being sold to the public as a measure that can stop the spread and whatever else they claim to the point - and this is where the crux of contention lies - of mandating them under punitive measures.

Masks can only provide potential benefits if it has a high compliance. That is, upwards of 80% of the population. There was already a fair bit of voluntary usage but for some reason governments - as they're apt to do - decided to side with specious studies and force a mandate through.

Masks on their own are just about useless. We have 100 years of data on this and it's telling until April of 2020 the WHO, CDC and other medical practitioners never suggested they be used for a reason.

The empirical science doesn't support it. Simple as that.

Moreover, a lot of things have to go  right to achieve some level of success including proper mask handling is essential (it's absurd the Quebec government thinks kids in schools will learn this and quite frankly it's not a habit they should be forming based on the available data and limited benefits).

We've somehow conflated arbitrary measures (which is precisely what these are) with being actual empirical science. This is what hysteria does. It pulls everything and anything out of context making an incoherent mess of how to approach a health crisis with the power of deduction and critical thinking.

If you want to wear a mask and think it's essential by all means go ahead. You can justify it all you want. Engage in faux-virtue pretending you're doing it for your nation or some other nonsensical reason.

Just do not claim it's science.

It's not.

I've examined just about every major paper cited in favor of masks. I'm not sure how they've come to be seen as evidence. But I suspect politicians and some in the media (the more honest ones anyway) know this. Usually, I see 'growing body of evidence' and 'may support' as the key phrases supporting mask usage. The former has half the sentence right. There are more studies but at best the limitations in the studies condemn them to conclusions of 'may suggest' they work.

Whereas the body of evidence against masks stipulate clearly through stern methodology they're effectiveness are inconclusive.

Again. I argue the government should downgrade back to voluntary use. We should not be engaging in social engineering based on the evidence.

But be happy. Superstition is now mandated.

You're now being socially engineered by Mother Bull Shit.

*****

Quick word on people buying into the government propaganda of masks being a symbol of virtue.

We're in a situation now where people are assaulting others for not wearing masks. We've seen cities encourage neighbours to snitch on one another.

The basic broken logic employed is: People who don't wear masks threaten my life.

Governments then sic cops on people who don't comply.

If you were to conduct a survey with people who believe in masks as a virtue about how'd they behave under Nazi rule the vast majority would likely think they'd be saving Jews.

Except they wouldn't. A precious minority of people risked their lives to save Jews. The statistical probability is most people would likely either remain silent or be collaborators.

So if you snitched on a neighbour during the pandemic, chances are you'd snitch on the Jews.

The ones who don't go that far (and perhaps think it's wrong) but still consent are the ones who thought 'Yeh the Jews are bad but'. You're no better. You likely accept the use of force against people for the greater good.

So get off your high horses. Your so-called virtue are acts of submission.

*****

I did an informal test today with medical masks.

Medical masks are thin tissue and fibres. So I wanted to see if I could smell Febreeze through the mask. I did. So imagine how easy it is for a virus to get through.

The other thing I did was grab my ultra-violet flashlight (I wore the mask outside in 33c heat with high humidity. It was a horrific experience. I can't believe people aren't outraged that they're being forced into such a cruel habit) and examined if stains were present. Yup.

Now imagine millions of people using them (and you can almost bet your house that a huge number of people are not using them as single-use or handling them properly - in order to conduct proper mask handling you essentially need to be a robot).

Shadow boxing with a virus.

Bad Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

It's time to have a serious discussion.

If you're paying attention, there's some troubling realities amidst us.

Here's how I'm interpreting what I've observed since February of 2020.

I noticed that a  novel coronavirus hit the world (after China didn't notify the world). This virus, based on flawed models that distorted our perception of its danger, then led to some of the most draconian measures in world history including quarantining healthy people for the first time. We inverted  hundreds of years of established virology and proceeded with policies not backed by any kind of science. The lockdowns were based on excessive doomsday scenarios that predicted millions of deaths.

As time went on, the virus has proven to be largely non-lethal (the tragedy of nursing homes was a one-time anomaly not likely to repeat itself) with a high survival rate coupled with effective treatments which further help people and even save lives. The system never got overwhelmed and it's not likely to do so come this fall. Even if it does, it will be pass fairly quickly. We've seen the system stressed and stretched during a bad flu season.

The lockdowns aren't only have a ravaging pernicious negative impact manifesting itself into a wealth of social ills including civil unrest, it also delayed getting nations to herd immunity.

Why did government do this? The reason given was to 'flatten curves' and 'save lives' but neither of these are tenable justifications anymore.

With all the data and positive developments, why haven't we followed and pivoted away from our original track? Why are we doubling down as if Covid-19 is still a danger to us? It's a serious virus, but not an existential threat.

Now we're being told masks help to stop the spread. This is not established science. It hasn't been since the 1920s when research on the effectiveness of masks began.

They tell us the 'growing body of evidence' proves masks work. If you base it on studies coming out since March if 2020 you can make this claim but it's a highly misleading one. They give the impression that recent research debunks 100 years of mask studies that counter this narrative.

The fact is the body of evidence doesn't support mass mask usage. In fact, there's sufficient evidence to be concerned it can increase health risks.

So what we have now is a situation where political leaders and public health officials unleashed a specious lockdown leading to inhumane outcomes. Rather than rethink and pivot given this fact, they've now moved on to the even more dubious claim masks work. Who knows what the consequences of this will be?

The idea we can just put a social animal like humans into a work from home environment and not expect a negative fall out from this is unrealistic. It presupposes we can all just adjust and be merry. Mental illness is prevalent in our society, asking people who enjoy a degree of socialization to suddenly work in isolation is bound to be problematic.

We've micro-managed and re-arranged our lives for this. This is change under false pretences. Is this a hill we want to die on?

Don't be fooled or convicted the measures are working. You're better off being skeptical about this.

We failed with the masks. We've signalled to the government we will trade liberty for safety.

Worse, we've now attached to it the notion of patriotism. If you don't comply to this 'social contract' (designed by unelected people of course) you're the enemy of the people.

In this case, the analogy to Nazi Germany is appropriate. Go read the works of medical doctors during that period. Now read this evil piece of propaganda from these three nutcases in USA Today.

Naturally a left-wing doctor and lawyer and a bioethicist penned it.

But we need to take these claims serious now. There are forces behind the scenes operating in the dark. They claim to be doing it in our best interest, but I'd be extremely wary and skeptical of this.

My advice? Find the confidence to believe in your concerns and express them. Don't be bullied into thinking you must believe credentialed people as if you're incapable of critically assessing what's being presented.

The only way you can achieve this is if you're free and have free access to information.

That's why they're censoring it.

They know you can be enlightened and pulled away from the established narratives.

Be concerned.

Be very concerned.

Daily Derp: Coronavirus Panic Continues Despite The Lies, Mixed Messages And Positive Data

Apparently, if you dare go against the government narrative that makes you a 'Covidiot'.

I see that a lot from mainstream writers. Here in Quebec the talking heads are swallowing whole the notion of 'doing it for the nation' nonsense where it comes to mass mask usage. One guy spoke of 'Le Contrat' with an actual letter attached in his article.

Oh the sophomoric vapidness on display!

The thing is, those of us casting a skeptical eye are driven purely by facts and science. I think this blog as done a strong job of showing and linking to various world experts outside the mainstream realm questioning the specious prevailing logic guiding policy.

Are those scientists 'covidiots'? Looks like they are according to these bums in media.

Bottom line: There's not enough empirical evidence backing MANDATED masks wearing.

We have this. They resort to name calling and public shaming.

Just who are the idiots?

As for Quebec itself, it takes its cues more from the CDC and Fauci than it does Sweden and Dr. Tegnell.

The thing is, Sweden is acting right in with established virology and science. It's us and other places fooling ourselves believing we're thinking outside the box.

Some box.

******

Body may recognize the coronavirus through T-cells.

This is encouraging news.

And possibly another notch under the 'end the panic sooner than later' belt.

******

I have a huge problem with the notion of healthy people being perceived as a threat to others.

Don't people see the danger in this kind of thinking and where it can lead?

I think people who choose to not wear a mask are acting rationally.

And it is not established that or clear how asymptomatic people transmit the virus.

There's no need for this crazy rhetoric about 'asymptomatic people killing others'.

What do you want to do? Arrest them? Have them committed?

And do NOT say this is not possible assuming we won't go there. We're already in the hysteria so anything is possible and plausible. Germany flirted with the idea and we're not immune from it.

******

If you argue in favor of wearing a mask on the grounds it's courteous and respectful to your fellow man in a spirit of humanity but support the lockdowns you've lost the plot and moral high ground given the awful unintended consequences it has inflicted on people.

But it's easier to engage in symbolic faux-virtue than to actually ponder that which you cannot see.

To me, a true humanist laments the lives ruined or lost due to the lockdowns. It's called being empathetic to real misery.

Wearing a mask is just manufactured consent. It has no virtuous and very little scientific value.

Does anyone not realize the utter absurdity of wearing a mask into a restaurant until they reach their table and then remove it for the night and then put it back on to leave?

No one thinks how preposterous this is?

******

Is it me or did the data from the Diamond Princess reflect the data we've learned about the virus?

20% got infected and 1% died - or 14 people. According to the flawed scary models that the lockdowns and our reactions were based, it was supposed to be 116. Half of the ship had asymptomatic people. So if they posed such a danger why didn't more people die? Why didn't it spread like wild flower in such a contained space?

The answers are stating at us in the face and we continue to believe otherwise.

Furthermore, it lends more credence to the WHO's now retracted claim asymptomatic people don't spread the virus as easily.

This fact prompted Dr. Fauci to write in the NEJM it would be “akin to a severe seasonal influenza”

Turns out Fauci was right and he was right about masks.

So why did he flip?

Can it be we're simply looking at it wrong?

******

Heaven forbid we ever admit we were wrong and Sweden was right.

I'm both envious and happy for Sweden.

******

In my opinion?

The people who pushed the 'this is going to kill us' narrative?

Like that guy at Imperial College Neil Ferguson and everyone who bought into it along the way?

They should be arrested and charged for crimes against humanity.

I'm serious.

The seeds of destruction left behind by their errors is inhumane. The lockdowns were never rooted in any kind of science and never will be.

I would like for someone to calculate the difference between people already adjusting their behaviours in the economy prior to the lockdown with government announcing a full scale lockdown.

*****

The same goes for legacy media and social media. They're censoring doctors and scientists who are espousing actual ESTABLISHED science. By denying people access to this information they in effect are killing people.

HCQ and RFL-100 work. What's so controversial about this? We should be happy.

But TDS is so severe now, it's actually costing lives.

Trump was right.

They were wrong.

And the election meddling by social media has begun.

*****

In any event, the suspension of critical thinking continues I'm afraid as people continue to hold on to the notion that just because the virus is out there without a vaccine means we need to live in fear and modify of habits (ie masks) despite two major facts: One, the lethality is not what it was once thought and racing towards flu like levels (it's already marginally higher) and two, the improved and effective treatments.

People need to come to terms with the fact that the probabilities of them being an outlier are extremely remote and that the vast majority of people infected survive it. There are some concerns for sure but overall the idea we continue to allow clueless bureaucrats micro-manage our lives is preposterous and no longer tenable.

Leaders that continue to employ drastic and draconian measures like we see in California, Ontario, New York, New Jersey, Quebec, New Zealand, and Australia are no better than arsonists setting fire to a building.

This is what those leaders are doing they're burning down the mental and economic health of their nations out of pure fear.

******

Dr. Fauci has proven time and again he doesn't mind lying if he believes it's for the greater good. He's the mad scientist comic villain personified. He has sent so many mixed signals and refuses to behave in any dignified manner it's a marvel he hasn't lost credibility with the majority of people.

I'm almost certain the second it's announced the pandemic is over or Trump wins in November, he'll be looking for new work.

Notice his smug, hand waving gesture at the end. Rep. Jordan did a good job calling him out.



******

To expand on Fauci, he says to wear goggles. A PhD doctor specializing in coronaviruses explained to a friend of mine that the virus does NOT go through the eyes.

So why is Fauci spouting his damn mouth off like this?

It only confirms Jordan's line of questioning.

******

California chaos. Californians have been wearing masks for three months now. And they're bitchy about protecting this pseudo-science too.

What a clown place.

Apparently there's an exodus. Well, if there is one my advice to the places taking Cali refugees in is do NOT let them impose their politics on your place. Fight back hard and viciously as the left does. They will turn your state into a disaster zone.

When people fled communist nations back in the day, they didn't vote for socialism or communism. They're the most fervently anti-communists out there because they lived under such depraved and violent regimes. Just like them, Californians who invade places like Texas, Colorado and Tennessee should not import the very politics that ruined California. They should be glad to leave it behind.

The pandemic plainly showed Republican states are sane and sober.

They certainly don't need the bankrupted stupidity of a Gavin Newsome.

******

As mentioned, treatments are developing quickly almost rendering the idea of waiting for a vaccine somewhat unnecessary.

Why do I get the feeling some powerful people and companies are angry the virus didn't cooperate? Someone or something keeps pushing this pandemic.

The truth shall prevail. Hopefully.

*****

Matt Novak follows orders like a good little sheep.

Not sure what he saw that was bonkers here. Seems like Wittkowski is more right than not.

The only bonkered people are the ones who keep acting like this virus is still a threat. It's a health concern that we can handle.

No reason to lockdown or mask up. And that's just the way it is.



******

One way to know if the 'white lab coats' are serous about this pandemic is by simply observing what they do.

If Harvard experts demand 13 states lockdown immediately, then they should graciously donate their pay checks to charity until it passes.

Same with Fauci whenever he says other people's lives have to be interrupted with potential life altering consequences. Think that Anthony? 'Pees'a cash' as we joked in Italian. Loosely translated as flash the cash; put your money where your damn mouth is.

Same with the politicians. Here in Quebec, they announced another lockdown is not a likely scenario even if there's a second wave which they think will arrive. Gee, thanks masters. I'd like to think they saw the destruction it causes but I'm not so sure.

Those politicians in Australia and New Zealand should be TRUE leaders and cough up their pay checks and stand in true solidarity with their people.

Then I'd take the phrase 'we're in this together seriously'. Until then, it's just empty bull shit.

But boy do the mid-wits eat that up.

******

Nova Scotia reported no new cases but keep the emergency measures in place.

How no one can raise a hand here and ask 'wtf?' really is distressing.

Then again, when you pander to the lowest common denominator....


NS is open. You just need to quarantine for 14 days & wear a mask to protect our aging & vulnerable humans. This is the reason why our case numbers remain low & the cases we DO have are a result of TRAVELLERS. We have NO community spread ATM and would like to keep it that way
❤️"






I think this person has it exactly backwards and hasn't thought through at all what they just wrote.

Anyway.

Back to the 'do as I say and not as I do' part.

Enter Mayor of Brampton, Ontario Patrick Brown.



If you go to his Twitter account his excuse is just about as lame as you'd expect for a dictatorial Mayor.

Basically, he blamed white supremacists for his hypocrisy.

I gotta look for my shocked face mask.

******

Not Wuhan virus related but it involves cops and hypocrisy. L.A. councilman supports defunding police but loves to call them for protection.

Like how Minneapolis councilmen defunded the police but kept a private security force for themselves.

*****

What does a hysteria look like?

College students and professors stage 'die-ins' across the country.

First off, I'd fire the professors.

Second, someone should inform these twits their demographic is largely safe and that the virus comes with a 99.8% survival rate.

*****

Homeschooling is sky rocketing. Parents are basically telling the system to go fly a kite. In fact, it may actually save children from the social justice factory of propaganda that has become of education.

The teacher's unions, because they're teachers, don't understand the concept of unintended consequences. They're so arrogant they believe everyone will just love them and accept their decision to screw kids over.

The other appalling thing about arguing to keep schools closed and online is that it pressures low income families who don't have the luxury of staying home since they have to go to work.

Teachers better realize fast they're not indispensable.

Go back to work.

*****

Domestic violence death rises due to lockdowns.

Those deaths are ABSOLUTELY on the heads of politicians who imposed lockdowns.

And you know who you all are.

Fauci, Whitmore, Legault, Arruda, Ford, Murphy, Boris Johnson, Newsome, Cuomo, Inslee, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Spain, Germany and so on.

All on your damn heads.

And the social angst you clowns are pushing with the useless masks will also be attributed back to you.

LeBron James Is A Paper Tiger Just Like China

Lebron James, in his oh so brave Twitter spat with the President, doesn't care if Trump - or anyone else who disagrees with his his brand of Comfort Wokism for that matter - doesn't watch the NBA.

A couple of things about this.

This strikes me as somewhat a selfish and self-absorbed position. He's not thinking of the overall health of the NBA when he alienates part of its fan base or customers. It's a misguided if not foolish position to state publicly. Imagine a major corporation coming out and saying 'We don't care if you buy our product. We believe in 'X' and you should too. If not, bye.'

This is where we're at in 2020. Completely incapable of respect for one another.

Watching NBA players kneel with an American flag behind them was just about the silliest thing I've seen yet. Get real. If you're kneeling during the anthem of your nation it's the same as spitting on it. Simple as that. If you have such a problem with the nation that has provided you with fabulous wealth and fame perhaps the problem lies within you.

And Lebron lacks respect for his league and the fans who may disagree with him.

It's about as short sighted a position to take as you can get.

This is further compounded by the league's utter and laughable hypocrisy with its relationship with China. Clearly, Lebron doesn't care about that. The behavior of the communist party in China is one of tragedy be it through their lying about Covid-19 or crimes against humanity with regards to the Uyghurs. To say nothing of their infamous sweatshops.

This is where part of Lebron's wealth derives.

And he has the audacity to continue to pretend he's fighting for justice? And even there, his support of BLM makes him nothing more than a useful idiot for a Marxist organization. There's a bigger game at play here on two fronts and the NBA and James are just pawns in that game.

Lebron is not putting a single thing in his life on the line. Not a cent. He's not risking anything.

He's no hero.

He's just a sad indictment of faux-virtue run amok.

Contrast this to Gino Bartali. He's an example of a principled athlete who risked his life.

Bartali stared down a real authoritarian in Mussolini who actually crushed, imprisoned and killed dissenters. Lebron and Popovich can eat popcorn from the comforts of their couches as they safely bash Tump from a left-wing platform like Twitter. Such bravery. There are no black shirts in Trump's America no matter what the voices in their heads say.

Nor did Bartali cozy up with Nazis to stick it to Mussolini as the NBA does by siding with communist China. Bartali was his own man with his own moral framework and was driven by pure principles. 

The war robbed Bartali of his prime years. To that point, he had be the winner of one Tour de France and twice the Giro d' Italia. When the races resumed after the war, he won each one more time. It's not a stretch to think his five Grand Tours wins would have doubled and put him among the top three winners in his history. 

But he did something bigger than that during the war. He save the lives of countless Jews putting his life on the line riding his bike carrying documents under the noses of Nazis.

Bartali didn't take a knee. Didn't squawk about 'not caring if anyone watched'. Didn't toot his own damn horn. He never alienated people.

That's a damn hero.

Not the self-entitled, millionaire, prima donna whiners we have today.

Lebron is a paper tiger. Just like his master China is.

A cousin: MLB is BLM backwards. Think about it.

Anyway....Your daily fetish of corona.

Cuomo on Covid: “if everything I do saves even one life, it will have been worth it.”

This from a man who legislated the most liberal abortion law in North America.

These are not principled individuals.

*****


In the 'No shit' files. Incentive to inflate deaths is there as per CDC.


“I think you’re correct in that we’ve seen this in other disease processes, too. Really, in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV — the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there’s greater reimbursement,” Redfield said during a House panel hearing Friday when asked by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer about potential “perverse incentives.”
Redfield continued: “So, I do think there’s some reality to that. When it comes to death reporting, though, ultimately, it’s how the physician defines it in the death certificate, and … we review all of those death certificates. So I think, probably it is less operable in the cause of death, although I won’t say there are not some cases. I do think though [that] when it comes to hospital reimbursement issues or individuals that get discharged, there could be some play in that for sure.”
In the meantime, this leads to lockdowns and masks.
It fuels hysteria.
Man are all these people gonna be in history books.
And not in a good way.
*****
Everyday we learn more about Covid. And the more we learn, the more it becomes evident we're exaggerating and over reacting.
But this is not the science they want to follow. They've staked too much of their reputations on it being Coronazilla.
I've read as little as 20% is needed to hit HI. A doctor friend of mine said 50% is more than enough for this virus.
*****
More treatments, potential herd immunity and 99.8% survival rates. 
Remind me why we're panicking again with the excessive protocols?
Geneva-based Relief Therapeutics Holdings AG RFLB.S has a patent for RLF-100, or aviptadil, a synthetic form of a natural peptide that protects the lung. US-Israeli NeuroRx Inc. partnered with Relief to develop the drug in the United States."

Huge protests in Berlin against draconian restrictions. Some reports had it as little as 20 000 others at 80 000. I heard as many as one million.

Naturally, media (including the far left woke New York Times) of course described them as 'Neo-Nazis and other names. As if perfectly sane and rational people can't disagree with the protocols. And with science and data to back them up!

Hopefully this comes to North America soon. Canadians in particular in Quebec and Ontario need to stop being made fools and ask hard questions. There should be no mask mandates and no return to lockdowns. We're six months in. Either they lied from the beginning and knew they were going to do this, grossly incompetent or just plain engaging in copy cat policy. Quebec certainly gives that impression. Canada is boasting they did a good job. Did we? Ford turned Ontario into a dictatorship and Quebec saw it fit to trample of civil liberties. Were these decisions necessary at such a high price?

I say no.

Wake up people already. Covid-19 is NOT lethal. And if it's not lethal living in fear of it bending to measures in order to avoid catching it is NOT intelligent or a LIFE.

It really is hard to get a read on the WHO but I remain skeptical of this organization.

Maybe a paywall.
"At least 22 of the Chinese companies on the initial FDA emergency-use authorization list—including some still on the list—were named in fake or invalid certifications claiming their products passed European health and safety tests or were certified in Europe, according to a review of company marketing materials from official websites and from middlemen purchasing masks."
China is asshole.
That's it for now. Looking into studies discussing whether the lockdowns were effective.
Hope to come back soon with it.
In the meantime, let's pull out 'I, Pencil'.

For those who don't see a problem with lockdowns or understand the unseen consequences, this classic story of how intricate the economy is even for something as seemingly simple as a pencil.

You lock that down, you lock down human activity and livelihoods. 


Ignorant AND Selfish!

"the 2 guys ignorantly said they don't believe in wearing masks"

Nothing like TMZ pimping pseudo-science, mask-splainin'. This is what we call a judgment statement. Besides, just like people are entitled to bellevue in masks, people are entitled to not.

Thanks Harvey. But I'm gonna stick to my own INFORMED opinion.

As this blog persistently has shown the past month. The case for mandatory masks is weak.

I'm a simple man. If a crazy state like California is buying into the mask hysteria it likely means you should to the opposite. 

Instead of attaching judgement pretending to 'follow science' and writing articles essentially absolving abhorrent and violent behavior, Californians may want to take a step back and consider the stupid behavior of their leaders and Teacher's unions playing a disgraceful and embarrassing game of petty politics at the expense of children.

Now that's ignorance given what we know about this virus and its relationship to children.

In short? They should be forced back to work or else they forfeit their damn jobs. In any event, judging by the signs and rhetoric I've been hearing from teachers, it may not be a bad idea for parents to keep their kids away from them. The public school system are nothing but shells of indoctrination now that failed the education of kids miserably.

Now fuck off TMZ.

Me listening to all this craziness:
