Shame The Devil …by telling the truth.
HERE’S A SIMPLE AND INDISPUTABLE TRUTH: 200,000 Americans HAVE NOT died of COVID-19 (C19)– or even as a result of C19. Nowhere near that number can be said to have so died.
That number (or whatever the number to which the purported national C19 death toll has risen by the time you read these words) is the product of months of unsupported attributions of C19 as a cause of death– the months in which far and away the larger portion of the current total being flogged by beneficiaries of panic was added up.
BEGINNING IN EARLY MARCH, the predicted plague-level disaster of C19 had failed utterly to materialize. Fewer than 100 American deaths could be attributed to the disease at that point despite many millions being exposed during the preceding three+ months of generally unhindered transmission by every international traveler arriving from anyplace already infected– including Wuhan itself, as a matter of fact.
C19 has long incubation periods and unusual persistence on surfaces (or so we are told). Most infected persons remain completely oblivious to this remarkably harmless malady version of the flu. Thus, C19, the flourishing of which closely tracked that of this year’s routine seasonal flu, will have reached every corner of the USA during those three months of December 2019, and January, February, and March of 2020.
Here’s the dynamic: During that three-month+ period, fully a billion people flew on airplanes from everywhere to everywhere. Everyone who had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone from Wuhan, or with anyone from any of the places to which anyone who had had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone from anyplace to which anyone who had had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone who had had contact with anyone from Wuhan had gone, was potentially exposed to C19.
Is this clear? HUGE numbers of disease vectors flooded America last winter. Even people living at all times in the remotest of rural areas were equally exposed since mail is delivered pretty-much universally; goods are shipped into all places; and even the most outpost-grade Qwik-Stop gets its groceries from and through other, much less out-of-the-way places and facilities.
The CDC estimates that 38,000,000 to 54,000,000 American cases (infections) of seasonal flu took place from October 2019 to March 14, 2020. Discounting for the slight duration differential (C19 actually first arose in mid-November of 2019, but wasn’t reported until early December), and in light of its longer transmissibility window, it can reasonably be estimated that C19 infected 36,000,000 to 51,000,000 Americans last winter, and had run its course in each such case.
But again, by March 4, fewer than 45 Americans had died from C19. See the CDC’s own statement to this effect here.
IT APPEARS THAT THIS LOW BODY COUNT was a problem for someone’s purposes. On March 4, instructions issued forth from the National Vital Statistics System directing the nation’s hospitals and other health-care providers to begin fudging the numbers.
Here is the instruction that went forth, commanding America’s doctors and perhaps more importantly and significantly, its health-care facility administrators, to begin calling deaths “C19 deaths” even when they had no sound basis for doing so:
Let’s repeat this, distilled and with emphasis added, to make sure no one misses it: “It is important to emphasize that Covid-19 should be reported on the death certificate where the disease is [merely] ASSUMED to have caused– or even just assumed to have contributed to– death.” (See the whole notice here, also with my highlighting.)
On March 24, the CDC doubled-down with this nonsense, issuing follow-up guidance being even more straightforward with the fudge encouragement:
SO, THERE YOU GO. All the ramp-up death reports, from fewer than 45 on the day this “guidance” was first issued to the present 200,000+ were only designated as such under guidelines allowing for guesswork and figure massaging.
Every one of those subsequent 199,955+ C19 ascriptions has been made under this fudge-favoring “guidance”. Everyone has been made while those making the calls have been immersed in a 24/7 Kool-Aid bath claiming that C19 is the über-disease like none saw before.
Of course, every death from that point forward with any respiratory distress characteristic (as in the case of all flu deaths, for instance, or all COPD deaths in which as little as the common cold contributed) was going to be deemed a C19 or C19-related death! AND THEY ALL WERE.
Even many deaths by a heart attack, stroke and other causes in which the patient also happened to have been tested and discovered to have C19 (even though possibly a very mild, unthreatening infection) are likely to have been listed as C19 deaths, as well, under the terms of the first “fudging” instruction, in which it will (or can) have been assumed to have “contributed” to the death.
Further contributing to the misreporting in a very big way is the premium payout to healthcare providers for designating in-patients as C19 victims (see a USA Today “fact check” about these premiums here— but you have to get to the very bottom of a long page before they finally say, “True”). This multi-thousand-dollar bonus program creates an obvious perverse incentive to err in the direction of C19 diagnoses which feeds into the predisposition to do so based on the panic-mongering mentioned above…
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN? It means that every utterance or publication of “200,000+ dead” from C19 IS A LIE. NO ONE can honestly make that declaration, and no governor or state health department can declare a C19 fatality figure for their given state or region which encompasses all the state or regional deaths ascribed to the disease since March 4.
The MOST that can be honestly said by anyone is that some number of Americans have died as a result of C19– and that the number is likely quite small, in keeping with the data accumulated up to mid-March before the numbers began being tainted with the issuance of the “fudge factors” by the National Vital Statistics System instructions shown above, and the perverse payout incentives.
That kind of qualified declaration is the only kind consistent with the actual data, and thus the only kind respectful of the actual “science” of this disease.
SO HERE’S MY CHALLENGE TO EVERYONE: SHAME THE DEVIL!! Slapback at every false fatality-total assertion with this real data, and the real conclusions they require.
Call or write to your local radio and TV stations and demand honest reporting. Call or write to your local newspapers and do the same.
Begin tracking the number of times false reports are made for future public airing and condemnation and tell the perpetrators that you are doing so. Inform them of the true facts and tell them that you’re having done so is being memorialized and will be made use of in the future public discussion of their fitness for their licenses and audiences.
And so on…
LET’S NOT FORGET, it is the fake reports– and the sense of emergency that they perpetuate (and are meant to perpetuate)– that are continuing the ruination of the American economy. It is the fake reports– and the sense of emergency that they perpetuate (and are meant to perpetuate)– that are continuing the ruination and of the personal economies of you and your neighbors.
It is the fake reports– and the sense of emergency that they perpetuate (and are meant to perpetuate)– that are terrorizing a generation of young children; imposing the grotesque absurdity of “masking” and “social distancing”; and being leveraged to secure a national acquiescence to socialist totalitarianism.
It is the fake reports– and the sense of emergency that they perpetuate (and are meant to perpetuate)– that are conditioning you and your neighbors, and your children and theirs, into acceptance of despotic government in the name of the crisis du jour. And this is acceptance to a degree undreamt of by despots of the past.
At no time in the history of Western civilization has the current degree of servile, robotic subordination of a populace been achieved by even the most persuasive motivation or dire circumstance.
What’s going on in America (and much of the rest of the world) IS INSANITY, and it is delivering all the evil consequences of mass insanity. That insanity, and its evil consequences, are based on a lie.
Tell the truth.
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
“Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked.”
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do.”
P.S. ABIGAIL HAMBORSKY, 17, has shared a cartoon that sums up some of the insanity in just a simple little image and a few simple words:
Abigail’s ‘toon and the ironies it exposes prompt a wry smile, to begin with. On reflection, though, we have to all recognize that there’s nothing funny about the destruction of lives and the encouragement of twisted thinking that are both being brought about by this ongoing C19 panic attack.
It has to end. Tell the truth and shame the Devil.
