Santa Clara County Public Health Officer Dr. Sarah Cody May Have Saved One Million American Lives

by Ron Unz

“Under a decaying and decadent political system, there is often a dangerous tendency to select public officials based upon ideological factionalism or the blandishments of self-interested lobbies. During normal times, this may lead to the sort of inefficiency and corruption that saps the strength of a society, but during a severe crisis, survival itself may be at risk. Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never even heard of Dr. Sarah Cody, but I am greatly relieved that my local officials are appointed based upon the highest standards of meritocratic competence. The contrast with America’s national government could not be greater.”

  1. There is still nothing published proving this virus makes anyone sick. Did the Chinese do the initial testing? If so nothing has been broadly shared. Any work done by Chinese doctors should have been replicated in other countries. Nothing has been published.

    In the 90’s Nobel laureate in chemistry Dr. Kary Mullis joined the fight against AIDS. The first sentence he typed “HIV, the virus that causes AIDS……. He needed a citation for this fundamental premise. He never found one. It doesn’t exist. He went on to post a reward of $50,000 to anyone who could prove the claim. He died with the money.

    Everyone wants to bash Trump for being “unscientific” but the sad truth is there is no real science yet shown to us peasants that this “Covid19puffypdiddyvirus” causes any disease.

  2. anon[137] • Disclaimer says:

    I think Ron Unz claimed 100 million people would die of this flu.
    Maybe he can come here and state his initial estimate, and then bullshit the numbers down. 🙁

    True, and there is also no test that can identify the presence of this “virus” in a human body. I went looking for the actual science behind this thing as soon as the panic button was pushed by government employees like Ron’s heroine, Sarah Cody. I was able to find none that even qualified as science.

    This could just as well be called The Great Cornholio Virus. It’s as believable as that same comic show character.
