Here are my Facebook posts rebutting the corononsense that is spreading there. The order is most recent post on top. To see what I believe about covid-19 read my "COVID-19, VACCINES & RULING CLASS DOMINATION AND CONTROL." (H/T to David Redbranch for coining the word "corononsense")



"Young and middle-aged people, barely sick with covid-19, are dying of strokes. Doctors sound alarm about patients in their 30s and 40s left debilitated or dead. Some didn’t even know they were infected" [1]

Those dying of covid-19, contrary to what some people think, are not people who were about to die imminently anyway; they are people who would not expect to have died for another decade or more despite their current non-covid-19 illness. [2, 3]


5G Corononsense: "5G is what's really causing covid-19"

Maybe 5G is dangerous--it's possible--but it isn't what's causing covid-19. How do I know? Iran has no 5G but lots of covid-19.

On April 24, 2020 Developing Telecoms reported of Iran [1]:

"Earlier this year, Iran’s telecommunications minister was reported as saying that the country will start work on 5G in late March, and that the country might be able to offer implementation – and services – as early as next year."

But on March 17, 2020 Business Insider reported of Iran [2]:

"The coronavirus has caused a full breakdown in Iran, with an unknown death toll, infected leaders, and massive burial pits visible from space...Iran has become one of the worst-affected countries by the coronavirus pandemic, reporting nearly 1,000 deaths and more than 16,000 cases."

The same story can be told of other nations that did not have 5G but did have covid-19. For example Indonesia is experiencing many covid-19 deaths [3] but there is no 5G there yet [4].





Corononsense: "Wearing a cloth mask is dangerous because it restricts oxygen intake."

According to this absurd, and groundless, "logic," most Japanese people should be dead by now. Read about the history and prevalence of mask wearing in Japan and note that one reason they wear them is to get good air. Try explaining this widespread mask-wearing fact of Japanese society--for many decades now!--with the idiotic theory that masks are dangerous to wear. Good luck.



Hey, "scamdemic" folks:

What do you think the evil ruling plutocracy (yes the ruling plutocrats such as Bill Gates and their servants such as Dr. Fauci really are evil l1]) and its mass media and obedient politicians would do if--contrary to your "scamdemic" belief--there REALLY were a very dangerous highly contagious disease that was truly what the evil plutocracy claims covid-19 is?

Just do the thought experiment please.

What do you think the mass media and politicians would be doing in this hypothetical situation of a REAL pandemic? [2]

What do you think the medical journals and WHO and CDC would be saying and doing in that hypothetical case of a REAL pandemic?

Would the establishment (Big Pharma, WHO, Gates, Fauci, mass media, etc.) act in a way to make the rich richer? Would it promote vaccines and drugs that made Big Pharma richer instead of doing things that Big Pharma didn't like? Obviously yes. Duh. That's the nature of the establishment, as we all know. (Do you think you're the only ones who know this?)

Would the establishment act in a way to tighten its control over people? Well, yes, obviously. That's its nature. Duh. (Again, do you think you're the only ones who know this?)

If you can make a persuasive case that the authorities would, in this hypothetical case of a real pandemic, behave substantially DIFFERENTLY than how they are now behaving, then let's hear you make that case.

But if you cannot make that case, guess what? Then you don't have a persuasive case that the pandemic is really just a scamdemic, do you?
1. I discuss why Gates and Fauci and the ruling plutocracy really are evil in my article: and in this article I link to my article that is all about the evil Bill Gates:
2. Read here why Hitler stopped his secret evil euthanasia program because of public outrage at it when it was discovered by the public. Note that all ruling classes know that they must act in a way that maintains at least a minimum of credibility (as acting for the welfare of the general public) in the eyes of the public so as to avoid being overthrown by a revolution. Note that our current ruling class is doing exactly the same thing regarding the pandemic--trying to maintain its credibility as acting to promote the welfare of the general public, and that THIS is the obvious reason it has instituted things such as the stay-at-home orders, duh.




**EDITED TO ADD: I wrote this post to help my friends sort through misinformation and did not expect it to go viral. Several commenters have asked me to cite sources, and I agree that this is important to do. I still have a day job, but I have edited to include primary sources for all points when possible.**SECOND EDIT: People seem to not understand that PubMed (ncbi) is the international database for cataloguing medical research studies and instead think it only contains government-funded information or research. This is not the case. It is basically the Google of peer-reviewed research studies.**

*The following statements represent my personal informed views and not those of any institution*

First, background: I’m a physician (specifically a board-certified pathologist, which includes microbiology and laboratory medicine) with a master’s degree in epidemiology.

In the last day or two, several friends have shared or posted about a video “documentary” called “Plandemic”. The film depicts now-discredited former researcher Judy Mikovits who shares a plausible-sounding narrative about the current pandemic. The problem here is that nearly all of her scientific statements are demonstrably false. If you have more to add to this list, or credible data to the contrary, please start a discussion. I suspect there are many more false claims in this video, but these are just the ones that stuck out to me as a physician with epidemiology training.

- She states “There is no vaccine for any RNA virus that works." Incorrect: Polio, hepatitis A, measles, to name a few. (Source:
- Her retracted paper was actually not about vaccines at all, even though she insinuates that it was. (Here is the article:
- She states that Ebola could not infect humans until it was engineered to do so in her laboratory. This is false. (Here is an article describing an outbreak of Ebola in 1976, long before Dr. Mikovits was conducting research:
- Likewise, many other zoonotic viruses have been shown to gain mutations that allow them to infect humans. This would not be some kind of new, crazy idea. We actually predicted it years ago: we just didn’t know exactly which virus or when it would occur. (Here is an article from 2015 discussing the likely emergence of future coronavirus pandemics: )
- She states that the US was working with Wuhan to study coronaviruses years ago, like it’s a “gotcha” moment: yes, of course we were doing this – Wuhan is a coronavirus hotspot and it makes sense to study this family of viruses where it naturally occurs. (Same article as above: )
- She states that COPD lungs are identical to COVID-19 lungs. As a pathologist, this is ludicrous – any practicing physician would be able to tell COPD from COVID-19, both clinically and histologically. (One article discussing an overview of tools for diagnosing COVID19, one about CT specifically, and one about histology specifically )
- The statement taken out of context from the CDC death certificate recommendation reads in full “In cases where a definitive diagnosis of COVID-19 cannot be made, but is suspected or likely (the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed”. In these instances, certifiers should use their best judgment in determining if a COVID-19 diagnosis was likely. Testing for COVID-19 should be conducted whenever possible.”. My physician colleagues are not being pressured to put COVID-19 on death certificates when it should not be there. (Here is the actual document with instructions for
filling out death certificates from the CDC: )
- The idea that physicians are incorrectly diagnosing COVID-19 due to financial incentive is also ridiculous. Medicare sometimes bundles payments for some conditions (i.e. if you have a heart attack, medicare may pay XX for your treatment) – it’s possible the hospital could get paid $13,000 for your COVID-19 admission, but do you know what that’s based on? The fact that the average cost of a hospital admission for a respiratory condition is $13,297. (I can’t post a scientific study here, since this isn’t a scientific fact, but this article describes the procedure in detail:…/fact-check-medicare-…/3000638001/ )
- She states that hydroxychloroquine has been “extensively studied in this family of viruses” – in fact, it has not been studied well in coronaviruses. It HAS been studied in malaria, which is not a virus. (Here is the one study that was performed that people like to cite, and it is an in vitro study (not in humans), of SARS (not COVID-19), and chloroquine (not hydroxychloroquine): ). And yes, it is considered an essential medicine for the treatment of malaria. Not for coronaviruses.
- Furthermore, the data on hydroxychloroquine are much weaker than they originally appeared: the small study that was highly publicized was not a randomized controlled trial, and the only patients who died were those who received hydroxychloroquine (and these were EXCLUDED FROM ANALYSIS!). This is terrible science. Even so, we want to investigate all possible treatments, so controlled trials are being conducted on hydroxychloroquine right now. (One study published on May 7 shows no benefit to using hydroxychloroquine )
- She insinuates that there is a hydroxychloroquine shortage as a result of reduced production. In fact, the shortage has resulted from an increase in demand: people who take this medication regularly are writing extended prescriptions and because physicians are using it for COVID19 patients because they have nothing else to try. (…/health-forum/fullarticle/2764607…).
- “All flu vaccines contain coronaviruses”. Nope, absolutely false. (In fact, it’s so false based on the way vaccines are made that there are no studies specifically stating this claim. It would be like trying to conduct a study to examine whether humans can live with zero oxygen. Nope, we can’t. No study needed.)
- The ideas that sheltering in place somehow harms your immune system or that you may reactivate a virus in yourself by wearing a mask have been thoroughly debunked in other posts and I won’t get into the details here. Both national societies of emergency medicine have condemned the statements of these doctors, one of whom is not board-certified. (Please refer to Dr. Kasten’s post and others about these)

- Lastly, private companies removing false information from their platforms does not represent repression or promotion of propaganda. It’s helping to promote the spread of sound scientific information. If you think lies should be permitted to circulate freely alongside the truth with the intention of reaching people who won’t be able to tell the difference, you are part of the problem.



The Lancet article states:

"People often wear masks to protect themselves, but we suggest a stronger public health rationale is source control to protect others from respiratory droplets. This approach is important because of possible asymptomatic transmissions of SARS-CoV-2.13
Authorities such as WHO and PHE have hitherto not recommended mass masking because they suggest there is no evidence that this approach prevents infection with respiratory viruses including SARS-CoV-2.3
, 4
Previous research on the use of masks in non-health-care settings had predominantly focused on the protection of the wearers and was related to influenza or influenza-like illness.14
These studies were not designed to evaluate mass masking in whole communities. Research has also not been done during a pandemic when mass masking compliance is high enough for its effectiveness to be assessed. But absence of evidence of effectiveness from clinical trials on mass masking should not be equated with evidence of ineffectiveness. There are mechanistic reasons for covering the mouth to reduce respiratory droplet transmission and, indeed, cough etiquette is based on these considerations and not on evidence from clinical trials.14
Evidence on non-pharmaceutical public health measures including use of masks to mitigate the risk and impact of pandemic influenza was reviewed by a workshop convened by WHO in 2019; the workshop concluded that although there was no evidence from trials of effectiveness in reducing transmission, “there is mechanistic plausibility for the potential effectiveness of this measure”, and it recommended that in a severe influenza pandemic use of masks in public should be considered.15
Dismissing a low-cost intervention such as mass masking as ineffective because there is no evidence of effectiveness in clinical trials is in our view potentially harmful."

The European Respiratory Journal article states:

"In line with the recent recommedation by US CDC for healthy people to wear a cloth face cover in public [14], we strongly support the use of cloth masks as a simple, economic and sustainable alternative to surgical mask as a means of source control for general community use, so that disposable surgical masks and N95 respirators can be reserved for use in health care facilities. Such intervention is likely to be life-saving in many resource limited settings."



""We are starting to near 3,000 deceased, a horrifyingly large number," noted the chief epidemiologist at Sweden's public health agency, Anders Tegnell, at a press conference on Wednesday.

"Tegnell, who has been leading the country's COVID-19 response and previously defended the nation's decision not to impose a lockdown, this week admitted he was "not convinced" the unconventional anti-lockdown strategy was the best option to take.

""I'm not convinced at all - we are constantly thinking about this," Tegnell told Aftonbladet, the Swedish newspaper based in the capital Stockholm." [1]

Sweden is also now facing an ECONOMIC DOWNTURN as bad as nations that did have a lockdown. [2]



The word "deadly" is not well defined. Some say, "Fewer infected people than we previously thought die of covid-19; so it is less deadly."

Others say, "Covid-19 is more contagious than we first thought, so far more people will get infected and hence--even if the percent of infected who die is smaller--far more will die than we first thought; so it is more deadly."

People use a definition that suits them; there is no "correct" definition.



If you've already decided that the covid-19 disease is a hoax, or "no worse than the flu" or that anything government authorities do, or say you should do, to save lives is a bad idea because it is only about creating a tyranny over you, then you will be able to find YouTube videos that tell you, "You're right!"

These videos will not provide any, you know, actual EVIDENCE that you're right. They will instead provide things such as:

* Suggestive questions: "Is it possible that...?" (Well, lots of things are possible in that they wouldn't violate the laws of physics. But plausible? More plausible than other easy-to-know-of explanations? Well, that's another story that the video doesn't want you to even think about. For example, it is EXTREMELY PLAUSIBLE that the authorities--despite being agents of an evil ruling and oppressive plutocracy [1], as they indeed are--do things such as order stay-at-home for the purpose of maintaining the minimum level of credibility (as serving the welfare of the general public) that ALL ruling classes require to avoid being overthrown by revolution. This is why even Hitler had to abolish his evil euthanasia program when the public found out about it and was furious. But according to the "logic" of stupid YouTube videos, Hitler, being an evil man, must have abolished the euthanasia program purely to advance his evil agenda, and the smart thing for people to have done back then would have been to fight to keep the euthanasia program going--to thwart the evil Hitler! And our government leaders, according to this same stupid logic, must be telling us to stay at home purely in order to strengthen their tyrannical rule over us and not at all about serving the welfare of the general public. And so, according to this stupid logic, we should NOT stay at home!)

* Unsubstantiated claims: "It has been found that..." (The two now-famous California doctors throw in phony arithmetic to make their pitch sound "scientific" to the gullible. Their trick is to use a bunch of plausible numbers with one totally absurd one they pulled out of the air to derive an absurd result. They're very good con men, not scientists or even honest men.)

* Stupid innuendo accusations: (A Dr. Buttar employs this in his now-famous video. He says very dramatically essentially (I'm paraphrasing here), "Aha! Dr. Fauci in 2017 predicted there would be a dangerous unknown infectious disease that the Trump administration will be confronted with in his coming term. HOW DID HE KNOW??? Hmmmmm." As if Dr. Buttar did not know that every person knowledgeable about infectious diseases knew that what Dr. Fauci said was true because of their familiarity with the centuries-long history of novel emerging infectious diseases striking humanity. This stupid accusation against Fauci ("How did he know???") is like accusing a traffic expert of complicity in a fatal traffic accident because, a few years before it, he/she announced, "Mark my words, in the next few years there will be a fatal traffic accident.")

* Dramatic alarming music as background to all the above

I write about actual reasons for being very critical of the establishment (including Bill Gates) and people who serve it such as Dr. Fauci [1]. I write about why and how to remove the rich from power [2]. But I talk about this with substantiated claims, not BS.



This man speaks as a scientist who happens to take his Christianity seriously; he does not speak as a Bible fundamentalist or anything like that. In fact, you'd not even know he was a Christian until the last few seconds of his talk.



We Are Soooooooo Blessed!

Our fearless leader does not want us to go body-bagless [1] so he is providing for us, God bless his heart. Now all he expects from us in appreciation is to let him stay in the White House another four years, so he can continue to provide for us, so that even while we die for the glory of the Dow Jones and Goldman-Sachs and of course the most honorable and noble "persons" [2] of our nation (the greatest nation there ever was in the whole wide world!), life as we know and love it [3] will not perish from this earth.
2. Note that these "noble persons" rely on the Democratic Party leaders as well as the Republican Party leaders to prevent good people from removing them from power.



1. The reason a person--even one who doesn't think he/she is infected with covid-19--should wear a mask in public is NOT to protect him/herself from others (the mask doesn't do that), but to protect others from him/herself. [1a]

The recently discovered fact is that people who are infected and contagious may have very mild (and possibly zero) symptoms and not think they have covid19 [1b]. This means that nobody really knows if they are contagious or not. Even if one had a negative test for infection, it could have been a false negative and/or one might have become infected after getting that test.

2. While a homemade mask won't stop the OTHER person's exhaled virus from infecting you, it will prevent the large mucous droplets (where most of the virus resides) that you exhale or cough or sneeze from traveling very far; this is how it helps to protect others.

3. Yes, it is true that the CDC and WHO and the Surgeon General, early in the pandemic, told the public NOT to wear a mask. This was BEFORE it was known that people without any symptoms could be very contagious. Before this fact was known, it was thought that

a) the only contagious people would be sick people who would be staying at home or hospitalized and hence

b) there was no reason for people going in public places to wear a cloth mask since it wouldn't protect them from getting infected and might make them feel as if they were protected and be less careful to wash their hands and not touch their face, and

c) if the general public bought the N95 mask that COULD protect them this would make it harder for the health care providers--who were at a MUCH greater risk of infection--from being able to obtain a N95 mask because of the shortage of such masks.


4. Wearing a mask in public places is a form of mutual aid. Choosing not to wear a mask when in public places is a form of SELFISHNESS. It really is as simple as that. This is why most people--despite the inconvenience and annoyance--wear a mask in public places: most people share the value of mutual aid, not selfishness.

i. which reports "The viral load that was detected in the asymptomatic patient was similar to that in the symptomatic patients, which suggests the transmission potential of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patients. These findings are in concordance with reports that transmission may occur early in the course of infection5 and suggest that case detection and isolation may require strategies different from those required for the control of SARS-CoV."

NOTE that the one (so far) example (that I am aware of as of May 8, 2020) of a totally asymptomatic person infecting others with covid-19 (reported in the NEJM) was based on the belief that the asymptomatic person (a Chinese woman who visited Germany and infected some Germans she met with) was truly asymptomatic. It later became known (after finally communicating with her in China) that she had been feeling tired and less than 100% well, although still well enough to attend a meeting and appear to others as asymptomatic.


Only 17.6% of people in the United States do NOT have a pre-existing chronic illness or condition that makes them be at high risk for a bad outcome when infected with the covid19 virus. [1]

Let’s practice mutual aid. [2]




I'll try to answer this using my experience of it. You see, I've had covid, tested and confirmed. I caught it in work (emergency services worker) just before the 1st lockdown in the UK. I took it home and gave it to my missus and our 5 year old boy. All tested all confirmed. I know where I caught it and when but can't say here. 2 of my colleagues also got it from the same contact. I took the precautions that we were advised to at the time which was basically wear gloves, wash your hands and hope for the best. There were no face masks and no eye protection for us then. I was symptomless when I went home and I had no choice but to go home having nowhere else to stay. My partner and boy had nowhere to go so we had to wait and see. A truly awful position to be in but in the UK emergency workers are no better than cannon fodder. Some of us will die and the government is fine with that. Hey ho, it's always been that way and always will be.

3 days after ‘meeting’ the person suspected of having it 2 of my colleagues that were also exposed to it reported that they felt ill. They looked it too! 1 ended being pretty poorly while the other recovered in a day or so. I was feeling confident because I was fine, no symptoms at all. That was until 11pm that night when in the space of 30mins or so my temperature went from normal to 38 degrees and felt pretty ill. I had a headache (not a bad 1) a temperature and a very mild occasional cough. No big deal I thought. In the space of a day I developed the worst sore throat in my life, significant joint pain and fatigue. The headache and sore throat cleared within a day then i had an upset stomach for half a day. I started to feel better and that was about it or so i thought. Over a month later i have lower leg pain from my knees to toes. If I stand for too long my feet bruise, especially my middle toes. My sense of smell is shot. It's not like a can't smell anything, it's just that everything smells similar to copper coins. My sense of taste is affected too. Most things don't taste of much at all. Chocolate and salt being about the only exceptions. So not too bad really.

My partner was much worse than I. She was hit hard with chest pains and her cough was terrible. She would cough so relentlessly that she couldn't breath and would be gasping for air. It was scary beyond words. I was worried she would end up in hospital and she was really quite poorly for a full 2 weeks, barely able to get out of bed or function. She is also hit with joint pain, fatigue ruined sense of smell and is still coughing weeks later.

Our 5 year old coughed for half a day and was off his food and grumpy for a day. Thankfully that was it for him. He's fine now.

I'll say here that we're both pretty fit, she's a good runner and I mountain bike on rest days and go to the gym and train hard 4 or 5 days a week. At least I did when they were open. We're trying to build our fitness up but it feels like our bodies are resistant to it somehow. I'm out on my bike but not able to do half of what I did. She is breathless after a walk now. The after effects of this bloody virus are somehow worse than the actual illness in our experience. I'm back in work but she is still off.

So I've seen 1st hand 3 examples of infection with 3 very different levels of severity. This infection ranges from no symptoms at all to death and the big problem is that you cannot possibly know which outcome you will get beforehand. You may be fine, you may die. Chances are you'll end up somewhere in between the two extremes but what a chance to take. I would not recommend catching covid, deliberately or otherwise.


Antibody tests support what’s been obvious: Covid-19 is much more lethal than the flu (this is a Washington Post article free to view)

Here's an excerpt:

Higher infection rates mean lower lethality risk on average. But the corollary is that this is a very contagious disease capable of being spread by people who are asymptomatic — a challenge for communities hoping to end their shutdowns.

The crude case fatality rates, covering people who have a covid-19 diagnosis, have been about 6 percent globally as well as in the United States. But when all the serological data is compiled and analyzed, the fatality rate among people who have been infected could be less than 1 percent.

But as infectious disease experts point out, even a seemingly low rate can translate into a shockingly large death toll if the virus spreads through a major portion of the population.



Read why Judy Mikovits’s journal article had to be retracted against her will but with the approval of her co-author in 2011[1]. Note that this all happened way before the covid-19 pandemic. Also note that as of 2018 there was still no known cause of chronic fatigue syndrome [2], meaning that no other scientists ever confirmed the claims of Judy Mikovits. Judy Mikovits has a truly TERRIBLE history and reputation as a scientist, earned long before the pandemic.

Austria Has 90% Drop in Coronavirus Cases After Requiring People to Wear Face Masks

Here's an excerpt:

The number of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases in Austria dropped from 90 to 10 cases per one million people, two weeks after the government required everyone to wear a face mask on April 6. 

According to Daily Mail, "Austria seemingly managed to reverse its crisis by making masks compulsory on April 6, following a spike in infections in late March."



Thought of this yesterday.. Do we have mass demonstrations, claiming it is a restriction of one's Rights -- when we are told to STOP at a STOPLIGHT. I mean, what if i don't want to? ..
There is actually.... zero difference.. between this.. and what stupidity we have seen. I wish someone would just offer this comparison.




9/11 was a false flag. Here are the things that indicate it:

1. There was a total cover-up on the facts of the 9/11 attack, indicating complicity in it by those doing the cover up. For example, the video footage of whatever hit the Pentagon was never made public. For example, there was never an explanation given for the free-fall acceleration collapse of the towers; only at first a denial of the evident video-recorded fact and then a theory given for it that conflicts with the laws of physics (the "pancaking" theory). For example, the behavior of G.W. Bush and his Chief of Staff conflict with the official story, as I wrote about [1], and there is no evidence that Muslims hijacked planes on 9/11 [2]. The list goes on and on and on. [3]

2. The official story (as indicated by #1 above and much more) consists of assertions about events that are, in their very nature, events of which HARDLY ANYBODY HAS PERSONAL DIRECT EXPERIENCE. No ordinary people saw who piloted or controlled whatever hit the towers or the Pentagon. No people living after the event saw what happened inside the now-missing planes. The 9/11 event was an event in a very limited physical space during a very limited time period for which there are virtually no direct witnesses who saw the true culprits committing the evil deed.

3. Because of #2 above, it was EASY for the ruling plutocracy to announce its official story of 9/11 as PURE ASSERTION, tell the mass media (which the plutocracy owns and controls) to report it, and ensure that any doubters would not gain mass credibility.

4. Because of #3 above, it was a perfect inside job that could be, and was in fact, used to justify a war--the War on Terror--entailing the invasion of foreign nations and the mass killing of innocent people there. This war was of huge strategic importance to the entire ruling plutocracy, which is why the entire ruling plutocracy and its media and politicians supported it. [5]


1. The covid-19 pandemic is an event that is being directly experienced and observed by literally millions of people (all of the hospital workers and families of patients, and funeral home operators and nursing home operators, etc.) in virtually every nation on the planet. The increase in the number of people dying from a new kind of lung/blood (and other organs it is now known) disease is NOT something that is just being asserted by the mass media (like the "19 Muslims hijacked the planes" assertion). No! It is being directly seen by millions of people all over the planet.

2. The official story of the pandemic makes perfect sense. Unlike "19 Muslims hijacking 4 planes and defeating the defense of the most highly defended building in the world by flying a plane in a manner that pilots know is virtually impossible by a skilled pilot, never mind a newbie as in the official story," the official story of the pandemic is perfectly consistent with the science of biology and the fact that there have been LOTS of very dangerous pandemics in the history of the human race.

3. While the ruling class uses the pandemic to advance its oppressive aims in some ways, as it also used the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, there is nothing that the ruling class is doing that is analogous to its using 9/11 to justify the War on Terror invasions. Nothing, in other words, that the pandemic is being used to justify is on the kind of huge scale as the War on Terror--something big enough and of such *strategic* importance [5] as to justify (for the evil people behind it) the risk of being exposed as complicit in something as terrible as a pandemic that has already killed FAR more people than 9/11.

The 9/11 false flag was clearly designed to justify the War on Terror. In contrast, the only thing that one can point to if one wants to argue that the pandemic was designed to justify something oppressive, is the stay-at-home orders. But in contrast to the War on Terror, which ALL the billionaires (and ALL the politicians beholden to them and ALL the mass media they controlled) supported--because it was truly in the strategic interest of the entire ruling plutocracy [5]--many billionaires and politicians are OPPOSED to the stay-at-home orders and view them as CONTRARY to their financial interests (which they are!) [4].

It is far more plausible to understand the stay-at-home/mask policies as things that the rulers know they must do to maintain at least a minimum of credibility (needed to prevent a revolution) in the eyes of the general public as being concerned about protecting the general welfare of the public.

THE FACT THAT THE RULING CLASS LIES AND ORCHESTRATES FALSE FLAGS DOES NOT PROVIDE EVEN ONE IOTA OF EVIDENCE THAT COVID-19 IS A SCAM AND NOT--LIKE HURRICANE KATRINA--A REAL DISASTER (unless, of course, one's mode of thinking is "Everything the ruling class says is a lie--always without exception," in which case one would have to stop believing that 2 plus 2 is 4, or that gravity makes things on the earth fall down instead of up--all "lies" told to us repeatedly by the ruling class, right?)
5. The War on Terror is the key pillar of the ruling class strategy of social control of Americans--an Orwellian War of Social Control that requires a bogeyman enemy, one that Israel's ethnic cleansing creates (which is why the entire U.S. plutocracy--Jews and non-Jews alike--support Israel) as I discuss at



Some (not all!) of the people who object to the stay-at-home policy have a truly fascist outlook that goes like this: "The ones who die are the weak ones; the strong ones are the only important ones, not the weak ones: the strong should not let the weak pull them down. Those who are weak should sacrifice themselves willingly for the good of the strong. The strong are of transcendental value"--as the "volk" or the "race" or the "nation," etc, depending on the particular flavor of fascist outlook. There is no way to defeat somebody with opposing values by arguing facts. One needs to defeat them by ensuring that they do not come to power, by any means necessary.




A Dallas salon owner who refused to close her salon in defiance of a Texas stay-at-home order, and who was jailed for that, claims that she had to open her salon to feed her children. [1]

Either the woman is telling the truth (about only being able to feed her children by opening her salon) or she is lying. Let's assume she is telling the truth. What, then, is the significance of this event?

Conservative leaders promote this response: "Let us go back to work so we can feed our kids; the government is imposing tyranny on us in the name of a spamdemic."

Liberal leaders promote this response: "The stay-at-home order is a proper order to provide for the welfare of the general public by minimizing deaths from covid-19."

Note that neither the conservative nor the liberal leaders say: "The welfare of the general public requires BOTH a) the stay-at-home order AND b) the sharing of social wealth (such as food and housing and health care and education and entertainment, ETC.) according to the egalitarian principle of "From each according to reasonable ability, to each according to need or reasonable desire with scarce things equitably rationed according to need."

RESULT: Divide and rule. It's happening before our very eyes. It is by suppressing any expression of the egalitarian values and aims of the VAST MAJORITY [3] of the general public, and ONLY by this CENSORSHIP, that the ruling class (consisting of both liberals and conservatives) is able to remain in power with divide-and-rule.

Our job is to expose what is going on, not to take one or the other side in the phony orchestrated liberal versus conservative conflict. People who support the stay-at-home policy AND ALSO condemn the government for not making food and housing available according to the egalitarian principle (by at least canceling rents and mortage paymens) are on the right path to egalitarian revolution. [2]



As the Boston Globe article [1] shows, MORE PEOPLE ARE DYING NOW THAN BEFORE. It's not--as the "scamdemic" folks claim--that it's just "covid-19 death" labels being applied to people dying of the usual causes.

"In an average busy month last year, the Ruggiero Family Memorial Home handled 20 funerals. “As of today we’re at 71,” he said last Thursday, as April came to a close, during a brief break between his third and fourth services of the day. “I’ve never seen anything like this....While comprehensive figures for April aren’t immediately available, throughout the state “everybody’s numbers are at least double, and in East Boston and Chelsea, they’ve tripled,” said C.R. Lyons, president of the Massachusetts Funeral Directors Association.

"In mid-April, 10 calls came into Ruggerio’s in one day. That single-day demand matched the number of services his home might handle in an entire slow month last year. Nowadays the white board in the downstairs office, on which he schedules his work, is filled with notes: three funerals on a Wednesday, four on Thursday, five Friday."

The pandemic is real, not a "scam"; read my "COVID-19, VACCINES & RULING CLASS DOMINATION AND CONTROL" about the larger context. [2]



The utter "let them eat cake!" stinginess--towards people who are suffering from the stay-at-home policy--of the U.S. government/plutocracy compared to, say, the more generous policies of the government of Denmark[1] or that of the UK [2], is the REAL reason we should be picking up our pitchforks and storming the seat of government.

The "Let us go back to work" (and infect more people) protesters are a mix of idiots and just plain simple selfish jerks.

MOVE ALONG, NOTHING TO SEE HERE. THEY'RE JUST LABELING DEATHS FROM THE USUAL CAUSES AS "COVID-19 DEATHS" NOW IS ALL. Brazil's President Bolsonaro reassured Brazilians that it's just a "little flu." [1]

"Before the outbreak, the city of Manaus, the capital of the state, was recording an average of 20 to 35 deaths a day, according to the mayor. Now, it is recording at least 130 a day, data from the state's health secretary show.

"People in the region also have been widely ignoring isolation measures.

"There also are signs in the much larger cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo that suggest authorities may not be able to handle a huge increase in the death toll. A field of fresh graves that was dismissed in April by President Jair Bolsonaro as excessive has since been filled." [ ]

Yes, the ruling class (including Fauci and Gates and WHO and CDC and Big Pharma) is evil and oppressive. No, pandemics do really happen anyway. Read about the evil ruling class and vaccines at .



They wouldn’t be overwhelmed if all that was happening was that “covid-19” labels were being applied to deaths due to the usual causes, would they?

An excerpt from this article:

Funeral Directors Group Enlists Volunteers for COVID-19 Funeral Home Relief

By / Apr 23, 2020 (RobertHoetink/iStock/Getty Images Plus)

The staggering numbers of coronavirus deaths in some states have left funeral homes without enough personnel to manage the deceased. The National Funeral Directors Association has coordinated member, nonmember, and student volunteers to assist.

As of April 22, New York and New Jersey had almost 20,000 deaths related to coronavirus. Those deaths have left hospitals and funeral homes overwhelmed, so the National Funeral Directors Association stepped in to help.

NFDA organized a program to coordinate member, nonmember, and mortuary science student volunteers who wanted to assist funeral homes in states with a large number of COVID-19-related deaths.


Comparing COVID-19 Deaths to Flu Deaths Is like Comparing Apples to Oranges

The former are actual numbers; the latter are inflated statistical estimates

An excerpt from the article is:

The question remains. Can we accurately compare the toll of the flu to the toll of the coronavirus pandemic?

To do this, we have to compare counted deaths to counted deaths, not counted deaths to wildly inflated statistical estimates. If we compare, for instance, the number of people who died in the United States from COVID-19 in the second full week of April to the number of people who died from influenza during the worst week of the past seven flu seasons (as reported to the CDC), we find that the novel coronavirus killed between 9.5 and 44 times more people than seasonal flu. In other words, the coronavirus is not anything like the flu: It is much, much worse.



There is a small but very vocal minority of people who are basically selfish--they don't want to be inconvenienced by the social-distancing policy to save other people's lives and so they grasp any stupid argument or phony YouTube to use as an excuse for their selfishness--to justify their ignoring social distancing policies. Good people should repudiate the selfish people sharply. Selfishness like theirs is the opposite of the egalitarian value of MUTUAL AID.

If these selfish people were truly concerned about the UNJUST hardship that people are suffering due to the stay-at-home policy, then they would be joining the GOOD people who are fighting for things such as canceling rents and mortgage payments during the pandemic; and they would be fighting to extend that egalitarian way of thinking to aim at shaping all of society by the egalitarian principle of "From each according to reasonable ability, to each according to need or reasonable desire with scarce things equitably rationed according to need."




Some people blithely say, "Hey, let's let everybody who isn't real old or already sick with something get infected with the covid-19 virus so we'll get herd immunity. So what if lots more people will need hospital ICU beds and staff that won't be available, and so what if they would have had a much better chance of living if they got sick later when better treatments would have been known and available, it's HERD IMMUNITY we need, right?"

Read this and see what you think about that strategy.

[NOTE: South Korean scientists recently said they believe--based on some observations--that one cannot get covid-19 twice. I hope they are right, but let's see if this is confirmed or dis-confirmed by subsequent studies.]



(Their video is embeded in this article)


At time point 4:01 these doctors say they "tested 5,213 people in Kern County and we had 340 positive covid cases." They then point out, "Well, that's 6.5% of the population.' [Note they don't use this result in the rest of their video--but it sounds very impressive, makes them seem like just "go with the data" guys, right?]

Then they say (4:38), "In California we have 33,865 covid cases out of a total of 280,900 total tested. That's 12% of Californians are positive for covid."

Then they say (5:13) that in California "We have 39.5 million people....that equates to about 4.7 million cases in the state of California....We've seen 1,227 deaths in the state of California with a prevalence of 4.7 million. That means you have a 0.03 chance of dying from covid-19 in the state of California... Does that necessitate sheltering in place?" [Clearly they meant, or at least ought, to say "0.03 percent chance" but when you're playing fast and loose with numbers what's a couple of decimal points to worry about?]


There are NOT 4.7 million covid-19 cases in California, as these doctors assert. There are 45,031 cases according to and 43,464 cases according to (accessed on April 28 in each case.)

There are FAR fewer covid-19 cases in California than these doctors are claiming. These doctors got their enormous 4.7 million number by claiming that 12% of Californians are positive for covid19, and they got the large 12% number in turn by taking 33,865 divided by 280,900 and they got that 280,900 number from NOWHERE!!

Clever, uh?

Throw out a lot of numbers, with most of them being plausible (like their number of fatalities), but stick just one crazy number in the mix (number of cases), and you can get whatever result you want if you know most of your listeners are not going to pay close and critical attention.

Now to continue with some real numbers for the state of California. There are 1,809 covid-19 fatalities and 45,031 cases according to the first site mentioned above, and 1,755 covid-19 fatalities and 43,464 cases according to the second site mentioned above. The first site gives the percent of covid-19 cases who die as 1,809/45,031 = 4.0% and the second site gives it as 1,755/43,464 = 4.0% as well (within round off to nearest tenth of a percent.)

So, instead of asking the question that these doctors ask, "Does having a 0.03% chance of dying from covid-19 justify sheltering in place?" the ACTUAL question should be, "Does having a 4.0% chance of dying from covid-19 justify sheltering in place?"

Reasonable people might very well answer the ACTUAL question differently than the way they'd answer the BOGUS question.


Google censors my anti-Zionism YouTube videos, so I have no respect for its censorship policy. I'd actually prefer it if Google did not censor these doctors but made refutations of their bogus video widely available.



Please understand that the covid-19 pandemic is truly dangerous [1] and that social distancing/masks make sense.

Please understand that if the ONLY thing the social distancing/masks (masks are not to protect the wearer but rather the other people he/she comes into contact with--something many of the anti-mask people seem not to grasp) accomplishes is to delay when people get sick and hospitalized, this would save lives because:

a) they would be more likely to get an ICU bed and staff, AND

b) they would be more likely to benefit by newly discovered methods of treatment and drugs for treatment.

Note: there is no guarantee that anybody is EVER going to be immune to covid-19, since natural immunity may not happen (and if it does it may be short-lived) and a safe vaccine may not be created (none was ever created for HIV despite more than 20 years of trying very hard!).

Note: The fact that somebody has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 does not mean they are immune to that virus. Therefore the "All we need to do is let lots of people get infected and we'll have herd immunity" idea is crazy: there might end up being only a lot of infected people quickly needing unavailable hospital care from doctors who have not yet learned better ways of treating them.

Yes, having herd immunity is better than not having herd immunity. But sometimes herd immunity doesn't happen, and doing dangerous things in the mere hope of making it happen is not smart. Recall how the large majority of Native Americans died from novel European germs because herd immunity did not develop to save them from that catastrophe.

Also note that most people grasp the importance of social distancing/masks and despite the terrible inconvenience they do it as a form of MUTUAL AID (one of the two key egalitarian values); they don't just think about their personal inconvenience/desire and act like selfish jerks. To address the hardship caused by social distancing/masks good people have demanded that the ruling class make social wealth be distributed according to (or at least more according to) the egalitarian principle of "From each according to reasonable ability, to each according to need or reasonable desire with scarce things equitably rationed according to need." Thus people in Boston organized a caravan protest to demand that rents be canceled. [2]
1. The pandemic is the reason that lots more people are dying now than previous years, as is evident from the very reliable "deaths from all causes" statistics from many nations:
Note: The excess deaths are also found in Sweden (18% increase in deaths) where there has been essentially no involuntary lockdown, which undermines the claim by some that the only cause of the excess deaths is the forced lockdown.



Around the world, more people are dying in 2020 of ALL CAUSES than before [1] when there were the "normal" flu epidemics.

Think about this.

First, deaths from all causes is one of the most reliable statistics. It is the same number no matter how wrong the cause of death given in the death certificate.

Second, the same story of more deaths in 2020 than previous years emerges from MANY nations. Are all the governments concocting phony death counts?

What, other than the current covid-19 pandemic, could plausibly explain why more people are dying this year than previous years? (Hint #1: Deaths shot up in Indonesia this year but 5G is not going to be installed there until 2022. [2] You can check other nations about this to your heart's desire. Hint #2: Deaths shot up 12% over past experience in Sweden where they had only minimal and voluntary "lock down" and so the hardship of "lockdown" can't explain it. )

Forget the problems with the test for SARS-CoV-2. Forget whether doctors are being pressured to call a death a "covid-19 death" even if it isn't. Forget what the true "case fatality rate is." None of these things matter; they cannot explain away the fact that more people are dying now than last year.

If you can come up with a plausible explanation for something other than covid-19 causing the increase in deaths, and provide actual evidence for it (i.e., data collected and analyzed without bias, not just suspicions or hunches or YouTube videos by some "expert" bloviating about the [irrelevant!] problems with the SARS-CoV-2 test and about what the real case fatality rate is, etc.), then let's hear what it is.

But if you cannot come up with a more plausible explanation than covid-19, please don't pontificate about how covid-19 is "just another flu," OK?






In 2018 there were 159,332 lower respiratory tract deaths in the U.S. Are the "covid-19" deaths a sub-set of the lower respiratory tract deaths that would normally be occurring, or are the covid-19 deaths IN ADDITION to those normally occurring deaths? It's hard to say for absolute sure, and maybe we won't know until 2021 when we have the data collected and made available. But it is extremely likely that the covid-19 deaths are in addition to the normally occurring lung disease deaths we would have expected absent the covid-19 epidemic. Here's why.


If the number of people dying of lung disease is spiking higher (and at an exponentially increasing rate) than in previous years, this alone would indicate that something--presumably covid-19 disease--is indeed causing the unexpectedly large number of lung disease deaths.  When you see hospitals reporting such a spike, it suggests that covid-19 disease is not about simply being infected with a harmless virus that happens to be spreading among people who were going to die anyway.


There is evidence that the number of people dying of lung disease during the covid-19 epidemic is in fact greater than the number of people with lung disease who would ordinarily be expected to die.

For example:

"There were 161 deaths each day on average in Massachusetts in 2017, with cancer topping the list at 35, followed by heart disease at 33, and respiratory deaths at 16. By comparison, DPH this week reported daily new COVID-19 death tolls statewide of 70 on Sunday, 88 on Monday, 113 on Tuesday, 151 on Wednesday, and 137 on Thursday." [ ]


For example, in one town in Italy:


"Gori said there had been 164 deaths in his town in the first two weeks of March this year, of which 31 were attributed to the coronavirus. That compares with 56 deaths over the same period last year." [ ]


This is evidence that the covid-19 deaths are NOT a sub-set of those who would have died anyway, but are additional deaths caused by SARS-CoV-2.


Another example is a NYC hospital:


"The number of very sick COVID patients coming in is tremendous. I don’t know if the word is exponentially or logarithmically, but the curve goes up steeply. ...The emergency department is just patient-to-patient lined up and packed in....Three weeks ago when we started to plan for this we came up with ideas like, This is the room that we’ll put a [seriously ill] coronavirus patient in. And then if there are a bunch of other patients, maybe four or five who are slightly sick, we’ll put them in this area where we close the door and keep them separate from everyone else. We were thinking about this room and that room. And now I’m up to 27 patients in my emergency department who are positive, waiting for beds in the hospital, and another 24 who are under evaluation. Those plans are ancient history now. In an ideal world, everyone has their own room, they would have negative pressure airflow and a face mask on and a dedicated nurse to care for them with a moderate ratio of patients. We can’t do that. No one can do that right now. Every hospital in New York is a variation of mine....I would say 10 to 15 percent of the staff is out [sick with COVID]. Many of them have been tested, while some have just had symptoms and we know clinically that they’re positive. Some of the employees that are at higher risk for contracting the illness are our respiratory therapists. They’re putting people on ventilators and working around the part of the patient where they might get some aerosolized particles. They are uniquely skilled employees, and they’re dropping like flies. Normally I would have five on during a shift. I have two today, at the exact time I have more patients on ventilators than before. I think we’re seeing three to four COVID deaths a day now. And that has changed in the past couple of days." [  Read the entire article please; the evidence is even more striking if you do!]


Another NYC example:

In a matter of days, the city’s 911 system has been overwhelmed by calls for medical distress apparently related to the virus. Typically, the system sees about 4,000 Emergency Medical Services calls a day.

On Thursday, dispatchers took more than 7,000 calls — a volume not seen since the Sept. 11 attacks. The record for amount of calls in a day was broken three times in the last week.[ ]


An example from Paris, France:

Officials in the Paris region have been scrambling to locate more intensive care beds, ventilators and medical staff and spread the load of patients across the capital and its broad girdle of suburbs.

“The wave is here. The numbers are dizzying,” said Aurelien Rousseau, the Paris regional head of the Public Health Authority, adding that efforts were being ramped up to meet the surge in infections.

France has already increased the number of intensive care units (ICU) from 5,000 to about 8,000, but doctors say the Paris region is close to its limit. The capital itself is trying to increase current capacity from 800 to 1,200 ICU. [ ]


​An example from Boston:

On Thursday afternoon, Dr. David Brown stood in the emergency department at Massachusetts General Hospital and took in a troubling indicator. One after another, sedated patients in the glass-doored bays were hooked to ventilators to help them breathe, thick tubing disappearing into their throats.

Doctors here normally intubate one or two, maybe three, patients a day, before sending them to an intensive care unit.

“We’ve done 10 so far today and it’s only 4 o’clock,” said Brown, chief of emergency medicine. “These patients can’t wait until they get to the floor.”

A senior resident dressed in a light blue gown, Dr. DaMarcus Baymon, raced by, and Brown asked how he was doing.

“Busy, very busy,” Baymon said, the steady rhythm of beeping monitors nearly drowning him out. Asked about the intubations, Baymon said, “We’ve never done this many, back to back like this.” [ ]


This video is a NYC ICU MD who has been treating covid-19 making the point that covid-19 is a "disease different from any we have ever seen" (time point 4:57). [h/t E.P.] [ ]

This does not seem to be a case of people who were going to die anyway of lung disease dying at the same rate as in past years. It seems like more people are dying of lung disease now than in the past. This indicates that there is a new cause of death, on top of the "normal" ones that killed people with lung disease in the past. It surely seems that the new cause of death is covid-19 disease, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

More reports of an otherwise unexpected upsurge in patients needing ICU beds and ventilators (for more days than usual, also) are as follows: here  and here and here and here and here and here  and here and here and here and here and here (a video) and here .

This upsurge in patients with severe lung disease cannot be explained by saying it's just the normal number of such patients we've always been seeing in past years except now many of them are being called "covid-19." Nor is it credible that all of these reports of what is happening inside hospitals are bogus. If they are bogus one would see hospital workers reporting they are bogus on social media. But they are not doing that.

There is, furthermore, a spike in the number of people dying at home, which would not be the case if the only thing happening was that people who would normally have been expected to die are now being labeled as a "covid-19" death:


"In recent weeks, residents outside Boston have died at home much more often than usual. In Detroit, authorities are responding to nearly four times the number of reports of dead bodies. And in New York, city officials are recording more than 200 home deaths per day — a nearly sixfold increase from recent years."  [ ]

Around the world, more people are dying in 2020 of ALL CAUSES than before when there were the "normal" flu epidemics. [ ]


Think about this.


First, deaths from all causes is one of the most reliable statistics. It is the same number no matter how wrong the cause of death given in the death certificate.


Second, the same story of more deaths in 2020 than previous years emerges from MANY nations. Are all the governments concocting phony death counts?

But if you cannot come up with a more plausible explanation than covid-19, please don't pontificate about how covid-19 is "just another flu," OK?


A Right and a Wrong Way to Condemn the Ruling Class During Covid-19


Condemn (using all safe means, including possibly demonstrations consistent with appropriate social-distancing) the ruling class for its refusal to make social wealth be shared according to the egalitarian (and WIDELY supported) principle: "From each according to reasonable ability, to each according to need or reasonable desire with scarce things equitably rationed according to need." Read how people in Boston are doing this. [6]

This principle, if implemented, would mean that everybody except freeloaders*, whether the stay-at-home, etc., policies to control the covid-19 pandemic prevented them from working or not, would be able to obtain (either for free or with money they would be given) what they need or reasonably desire with equal status regarding rationed scarce things: food, shelter, health care, medicine, education, entertainment, fun stuff too.

This is, in fact, what the vast majority of people want. [4] Virtually all of the various complaints about the status quo and about the government's inadequate or wrongful response to the needs of people during the pandemic that are being made are based, implicitly if not explicitly, on the egalitarian principle. (Please read my article about the ruling class & covid-19 [5]).


Condemn the government for its stay-at-home, etc., policies and hold demonstrations demanding--in effect--that we go back to the "good old days" of class inequality (capitalism) with people working as wage slaves (a.k.a. employees) for masters (a.k.a. employers), with people being treated like dirt by the upper class in order to make people accept our place at the bottom of a very unequal and unjust society [1].

Betsy deVos loves this wrong way and is funding it. [2] [3]


* Freeloaders are people (rich or poor!) who are able to contribute reasonably but refuse to do so AND demand to be given the fruit of the labor of those who do contribute reasonably. People who cannot--for physical or mental reasons or because of ruling-class-imposed involuntary unemployment--contribute are not freeloaders. People who are children or above the retirement age have a "reasonable contribution" of zero. People who take care of children (their own or others) or who attend school or an apprentice program appropriately are contributing reasonably.

Tucker Carlson Is At It Again: This Time Trying to Show that Stay-At-Home Does No Good

Compare Tucker Carlson's claim, April 22 [1] with Business Insider's report April 20 [2] about Sweden.

Tucker Carlson:

"Sweden famously has never locked down...And without locking down, Sweden--and this is the key--has fared far better than other European countries that did lock down. That includes Britain, Italy, Spain, Belgium." (Why these but not other countries???)

Business Insider:

"Sweden's lack of strict lockdowns contrasts sharply with the rest of Europe, and it has yet to see a downturn in COVID-19 cases. The country — which has a population of about 10.2 million — has seen 15,322 cases and 1,765 deaths from the virus so far, making the death rate per capita at 17.3 deaths per 100,000 people.

"Sweden's Nordic neighbors Norway and Finland approached the virus differently, and it could be why they're facing just a fraction of COVID-19-related deaths.

"Norway went into lockdown in mid-March, closing schools, restaurants, cultural events, gyms, and tourist attractions. It also banned outside travelers. Finland, which has been stockpiling medical supplies since the Cold War, restricted border traffic, banned gatherings of 10 or more people, and closed schools as part of its coronavirus guidelines.

"Norway, which has nearly 5.4 million people, has seen 7,191 cases and 182 deaths, with a death rate per capita at 3.37 deaths per 100,000 people. Finland, with a population of 5.5 million, has seen 4,014 COVID-19 cases and 141 deaths, with a death rate per capita at 2.56 deaths per 100,000 people.

"For a further comparison, the United States, which has a population of 328.2 million, has seen 800,932 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and 43,006 deaths, with a death rate per capita at 13.1 deaths per 100,000 people.

"Anders Tegnell, the state epidemiologist who created Sweden's relaxed coronavirus response plan, told local media that the country's fatality rates show the spread of the virus is starting to "plateau," according to Bloomberg.

"Charts released by Pantheon Macroeconomics, however, contradict Tegnell. Sweden's COVID-19 cases appear to still be rising, and Norway's appear to already be on a downslide.

[See the graphic in the [2] link]

"This side-by-side of Sweden versus Norway shows that Sweden may have made a mistake in taking a relaxed approach to lockdown. Ian Shepherdson / Pantheon Macroeconomics

"Bo Lundback, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Gothenburg, told Agence Frances-Press that a change needed to happen.

What about the Comparison of US states with versus not with lockdown orders?

Tucker cites a study [5] by a professor Wilfred Reilly comparing seven states without lockdown orders to the remaining ones with such orders and reports that a regression model showed no difference due to the lockdown order.

But here's something curious about Reilly's study. He counted Massachusetts as a state with a lockdown order. Read the WBUR (a Boston, MA NPR radio station) article titled, "Gov. Charlie Baker Wants You To Stay At Home. He Just Won't Order You To," to see that Massachusetts doesn't actually have a stay at home order. But Massachusetts does have a high death rate; you can see it is among the states with the most covid-19 deaths despite not having a very large population [3] and you can read at another site [4] that ranks the U.S. states by covid-19 deaths per capita this about Massachusetts: "COVID-19 related deaths as of 4/21/2020: 28.4 per 100,000 people -- 5th highest (total: 1,961)."

Furthermore, the distinction between Massachusetts' "advisory" versus other states' formal orders to stay at home is one that the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation asserts is a very important one in terms of how people actually behave. This university institute incorporated this distinction in its regression model to predict the number of future covid-19 deaths in Massachusetts; their prediction was higher than what the governor of Massachusetts agreed with. A Boston Globe article [6] (that requires a subscription to read) reports on the dispute between the University of Washington institute's scientist, named Mokdad, and the Massachusetts governor:

"It may seem largely like a semantic difference, but the power of the “order” counts significantly in the University of Washington model, and Massachusetts’ long-term outlook appears far worse without it, Mokdad said.

"Mokdad defended the model, saying an advisory is a weaker message and does less to promote social distancing. “When the government comes out and says, 'Hey, we have a serious problem, stay at home,’ people are more likely to stay at home,” he said. “When you say it’s an advisory and leave it up to the people, I mean — it is sending mixed messages at this time. The language is very important.”

The point is this: Professor Reilly did some cherry picking. Knowing that Massachusetts with its very high covid-19 deaths per capita would make the "no lock down order" category of states have a higher covid-19 deaths per capita average if he included it in that category, he put it in the other category--the "lockdown" category. One can only wonder how many other such little hidden decisions the professor made to ensure he got the result that he wanted. Peer review is aimed at (not always successfully by the way) weeding out articles in which such cherry picking is evident.

But Give the Devil His Due

I will admit it. Tucker Carlson is an EXTREMELY effective propagandist. He exudes sincerity and moral outrage and a "let's just rely on the data" objectivity. It reminds of the famous line by Jean Giraudoux: "The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made." [7]


5. This is not a peer reviewed study, just an article by the author:



Note that the TOTAL number of deaths due to a particular cause is the AREA UNDER THE CURVE of weekly deaths. Clearly the total number of deaths due to covid-19 by "week 33" of this "season" is going to be far larger than for the earlier flu of 2017-18. Those who say covid-19 "is just another flu" point out that the total number of CURRENT deaths (up to only "week 9") due to covid-19 is a lower number than the total number of deaths due to the flu up to "week 33," but SO WHAT!!!

Look at how previous contagious disease deaths/week decline over time from their peak. Is it a sudden drop? No. On the contrary it is a slow (almost horizontal) decline. Consider what this means if we are now at the peak of covid-19 deaths/week (a very optimistic assumption) and the decline is slow (almost horizontal) like the earlier infectious disease deaths/week. Then consider how many more total deaths (the area under the curve) there will likely be (in this OPTIMISTIC scenario) by "week 33" due to covid-19 compared to the earlier flu or pneumonia deaths. OK?



Those who think that covid-19 deaths are just people who would have died anyway being labeled "covid-19 death" might want to hear what this doctor says about his covid-19 patients.

I suppose one can, if one wishes, dismiss these reports about what infection with SARS-CoV-2 does, as just some doctors speaking or writing from a script given to them by Bill Gates to make us fear the spread of this virus. But before one does that, it would behoove one to see if there are other doctors saying that in their experience the virus doesn't ever do this.



As a person who has written often about how 9/11 was an inside job false flag [1], and who has written about how Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates and WHO and the U.S. and Chinese governments are part of a world-wide oppressive ruling elite [2], I am embarrassed by the crop of covid-19 skeptics (people who deny that the pandemic is dangerous and requires social distancing) who, unlike 9/11 Truthers, make absurdly unpersuasive arguments. (If I were Fauci, I'd be thrilled that my critics were these crop of unpersuasive skeptics; I might even make it worth their while.)

Here is a good example: an ABSURD CLAIM ABOUT DR. FAUCI

Dr. Rashid Buttar, who claims that there is not a dangerous covid-19 epidemic, that the virus cannot "jump 13 feet," that hospitals are virtually empty, etc.) is interviewed on a video at At time point 6:22 Dr. Buttar says that Dr. Fauci, very suspiciously, in 2017 predicted the current pandemic would happen during the Trump administration. Dr. Buttar asks, "How did he know?" and adds that nobody can predict the market even three days in advance; how did Fauci predict a pandemic three years in advance?" Dr. Buttar asserts that Dr. Fauci deliberately ensured that the covid-19 virus would be created in a lab and used to cause a pandemic. (He gives no actual evidence for this, by the way, just assertions.)


If you actually watch the video of Fauci's 2017 speech (it is embedded--with the title "Pandemic: Preparedness in the next administration..." at and listen to the whole speech you will see that Fauci relates his many decades of experience with numerous different infectious diseases. At the end of his talk (at time point 38:23) Fauci then totally reasonably says, BASED ON HIS DECADES OF EXPERIENCE WITH INFECTIOUS DISEASES, that we need a public health emergency fund. Here is how he defends this point. He says about the years of the incoming (Trump) administration: "Will there be a resurgence of Zika? ...What about influenza? Are we going to get a new pandemic? And the third bullet [of his power point slide] is probably the most important. What about the things that we're not even thinking about? But what is for sure, that no matter what, history has told us definitively that it will happen because infectious diseases, as I said eight years ago, is a perpetual challenge. It is not going to go away. So the thing we're extraordinarily confident about is that we are going to see this in the next few years."

This is hardly a "How did he know????" prediction. It is obvious that Fauci was making a totally reasonable prediction based on his knowledge of past infectious diseases. And he wasn't predicting any specific infectious disease. He was predicting one that "we're not even thinking about."

Any infectious disease expert would have made the same prediction. It's a no-brainer if you're well-informed about infectious diseases. Dr. Buttar's "gotcha" is a nothing-burger gotcha if ever there was one. I'm sure Dr. Fauci, if he saw this video, would think, "With critics like Dr. Buttar I don't need fans."

If Dr. Buttar makes such absurd accusations against Dr. Fauci, then it follows there is hardly any reason to take seriously anything else he asserts.


Dr. Buttar and his ilk are an embarrassment to me. Why? Because the ruling class establishment that Dr. Fauci is a key part of DOES deserve to be sharply condemned. But it should be condemned for what it *truly* does. As I explain [2], what this ruling class establishment does is to provide drugs and vaccines as a SUBSTITUTE FOR (rather than as a possibly--depending on good, not biased, science--worthy supplement to) making our society healthful for ordinary people by things such as ensuring that people have clean water (not like Flint!) and nutritious food (not "food deserts" as in so many places in the U.S. today) and abolishing the oppression of people that entails treating people like dirt (read about 18 examples of this [3]) and thus putting us under unnecessary stress that weakens our immune systems, etc.

THIS is what the ruling class "health" establishment should be condemned for. Concocting unfounded accusations only detracts from what we ought to be doing.




In case you want to know how the CDC categorizes deaths with respect to covid-19, here is the CDC instruction form:

The CDC is certainly NOT telling doctors to list all deaths as covid-19 deaths, as some have falsely claimed.



For the umteenth time, and for those that still don't get it, pay attention now:

The fact that further testing for covid-19 infection shows there are a LOT of people who have been infected with the covid-19 virus who had zero or only very mild symptoms is NOT GOOD NEWS. The fact that these new numbers show that the case fatality rate is lower (because the denominator of cases is larger) than previously estimated IS NOT GOOD NEWS.

Why not?

Because what it means is that the covid-19 virus is able to spread far more widely and quickly than earlier flu viruses. This is so because the covid-19 virus has lots more hosts it can infect, hosts who do not stay home because they are sick (as with earlier flu viruses) but who go out and mingle with others and spread the virus to others. This is GOOD NEWS FOR THE VIRUS AND BAD NEWS FOR US!

What this means is that the number of infected people is huge and therefore the small percentage of them who die (the case fatality rate) is a LOT of people. A small percent of a HUGE number is a big number. 1% of a million dollars is a lot more than 10% of a hundred dollars, right?

Some earlier disease viruses did not infect as many people and so even though a larger percentage of infected people died the total number who died was smaller. Ebola, for example, killed a very high percentage of those who were infected. But for this very reason Ebola could not spread very far (its hosts died before spreading it to very many other people) and was limited to a small geographical region. And it therefore killed fewer people than a world wide pandemic can kill.



If there were an avalanche and the government ordered people at the base of the mountain to evacuate, some idiots would refuse and would mount a protest against the "Fascist government."

Those idiots are quite visible in parts of the country today.

They don't grasp the fact that the truth about SARS-CoV-2 cannot be inferred from the fact (yes, it is a fact!) that the government is run by agents of an oppressive billionaire plutocracy.




"There were 161 deaths each day on average in Massachusetts in 2017, with cancer topping the list at 35, followed by heart disease at 33, and respiratory deaths at 16. By comparison, DPH this week reported daily new COVID-19 death tolls statewide of 70 on Sunday, 88 on Monday, 113 on Tuesday, 151 on Wednesday, and 137 on Thursday." [ ]
