Motorcycle accidents ruled Covid deaths? In the rush to paint Florida as the epicenter of the “second wave” of the coronavirus outbreak, government officials and their allies in the mainstream media have stooped to ridiculous depths to maximize the death count. A television station this weekend looked into two highly unusual Covid deaths among victims in their 20s, and when they asked about co-morbidities they were told one victim had none, because his Covid death came in the form of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. In fact the “spike” that has dominated the mainstream for the last couple of weeks is full of examples of such trickery.

Washington state last week revised its Covid death numbers downward when it was revealed that anyone who passed away for any reason whatsoever who also had coronavirus was listed as a “Covid-19 death” even if the cause of death had nothing to do with Covid-19.

In South Carolina, the state health agency admitted that the “spike” in Covid deaths was only the result of delayed reporting of suspected Covid deaths.

An analysis of reported daily Covid deaths last week compared to actual day-of-death in Houston revealed that the recent “spike” consisted largely of deaths that occurred in April through June. Why delay reporting until now?

We do know that based on this “spike” the Democrat mayor of Houston cancelled the convention of the Texas Republican Party. Mission accomplished?

Doesn’t it seem suspicious that so many states have experienced “delayed” reporting of deaths until Fauci and his gang of “experts” announced that we are in a new nightmare scenario?

Last week in Florida – which is perhaps not coincidentally the location of the Republican Party’s national convention – another scandal emerged when hundreds of Covid test centers reported 100 percent positive results. Obviously this would paint a far grimmer picture of the resurgence of the virus. Orlando Health, for example, reported a positivity rate of 98 percent – a shocking level – but a further investigation revealed a true positivity rate of only 9.4 percent. Those “anomalies” were repeated throughout the state.

“Cases” once meant individuals who displayed sufficient symptoms to be treated in medical facilities. But when the scaremongers needed a “second wave” they began reporting any positive test result as a “Covid case.” No wonder we have a “spike.”

Politics demands that politicians be seen doing “something” rather than nothing, even if that something is more harmful than doing nothing at all. That is why Washington is so addicted to sanctions.

The same has been true especially in Republican-controlled states in the US in response to the coronavirus. Faced with a virus that has killed about one-third as many people as the normal, seasonal flu virus in 2018, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has endorsed a partial shutdown of the economy resulting in millions tossed into the despair of unemployment. Then he arbitrarily shut down bars because massively increased testing showed more people have been exposed to the virus. And he mandated that people wear face masks. Neither shutting down bars (instead of restaurants or Walmarts) nor forcing people to wear masks will have any effect on the progression of the virus through society. But at least he looks like he’s doing “something.”

We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?

    Most people on “our” side, like Dr. Paul, assume without questioning that the virus is real. How do we know that for sure?

    I admit that coronaviruses are real, but this specific Covid-19 I’m not so sure. And the testing, how specific is it to any particular virus. My understanding is doctor’s cannot be sure what they are testing for and that anyone who might have the flu or other common cold virus would likely test positive.

  2. Has Covid-19 become the most politicized disease in US history? It’s looking that way.

    This virus threat is being used to lockdown America, re-shape our economy and culture, and steer the US towards becoming an even more expansive welfare state. Free money is flying out the window. This is a Democrat specialty. The Dems will always promise more. Welfare recipients are their base.

    There’s no way that Trump or the GOP can drain the swamp or reduce the size of government if millions of people are being put out of work to ‘stop the spread’. The Covid-19 pandemic is a Big Government wet dream come true. As the Mainstreet economy shrinks, watch the public sector expand. This means that there will be an inevitable loss of freedom, independence, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance.

    Free health care in hospitals staffed by public servants

    Because the VA and DMV are such models of “public servants” providing good service. “Free” health care means your doctor’s office is staffed with typical government employees, utilizes Pentagon style purchasing and waiting lists that are longer than your lifespan.

    Seeking your first job when you’re not even in debt yet because universities are part of the bureaucracy?

    Not in debt? Under this model you are never out of debt since you are eternally paying through the nose to the government.

    Few people in prison because no profit to be made from prisons

    End the drug war and you cut the prison population greatly.

    A government robbing us just for things like that?

    The government deciding how the fruits of your labor are spent, not you. I trust myself more than I do any person of such low character and suspect morals that they became a government employee.

    Given that they allow tuberculosis and other previously vanquished diseases to enter our borders unimpeded, this has nothing whatsoever to do with public health. This is politicized to the extent that it’s a media created panic over a perfectly mundane coronavirus. If the media hadn’t blasted this across the airwaves 24/7, absolutely nobody would have noticed anything out of the ordinary.

    People get coronaviruses. Sometimes if they’re old and/or weak, they die. It’s been happening without fanfare since long before recorded history.

    That something so utterly mundane could be the source of a national or global panic should come as absolutely no surprise for anyone who has been paying attention. Have we so quickly forgotten about the panic these same shills foisted upon us over the mundane fact that our planet’s atmosphere is dynamic?

    I’m ready to be done with it all. My next heart attack can’t come soon enough. This world is just too damn stupid for me to tolerate.

    “As the Mainstreet economy shrinks, watch the public sector expand.”
    Maybe. But all the evidence — at a State level — points the other way. As mainstreet declines, so do State tax receipts. Thus, public sector shrinks, rather than expands. Of course, Washington may bail out the States…LOL !!

    Libertarianism as caricature of itself– any way it worked adequately, by default, at the leading edge of the westward expansion up to 1870 – 80 or so. Now, in a nation of 330 million, not so much.
    I do agree with this assertion: “End the drug war and you cut the prison population greatly”. And save billions upon billions each year in prison budgets.

  17. We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?

    Yes, our liberties and livelihoods are under assault, but why are you stipulating to the central lie in this flood of falsehoods that are being used to attack us? This is typical of you, Dr. Paul. “The virus is real”, my ass. Enough with your day late, dollar short, half stepping pronouncements.

  18. Neither shutting down bars (instead of restaurants or Walmarts) nor forcing people to wear masks will have any effect on the progression of the virus through society.

    A four-year old without severe brain damage would be capable of recognizing the nonsense in that sentence of yours for what it is.

    We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian.

    Well, if it’s a matter of principles, why do you need the additional point that those measures you cite as examples of that assault are ineffective (and resort to nontruths to that effect)?

    But is this a matter of principles? Is libertarianism your cause because its consequences are deemed materially good for the human race or because you wouldn’t be able to live as a spiritually fulfilled person in a less free world and would rather die for that freedom?

  20. Quick story relayed to me by a highly reliable, vetted source. A local couple registered online to have a COVID-19 test for both of them. They drove to the test site and checked-in with the attendants and told to wait. After a lengthy amount of time they decided to wait no longer and would come back another time. Keep in mind, NO TEST WAS DONE on either of them. Two weeks after this they received notification they both had tested positive to COVID-19.

    So, this should trouble everyone. How often does this happen? Is it being directed? Is it a small percentage of tests/non-tests being screwed up?

    We are being lied to and manipulated. There is no “NEW NORM” only a different version of the same crap from leadership at all levels.

  21. There is a branch of mathematics called measure theory, which, for example gives the area under a curve. Without masks, social distancing, and lockdowns, you have a short, steep curve, meaing lots of cases and fatalities in a short time. With them, you have a longer curve that is much less steep. The deaths are spread out over a longer period. But eventually, everyone gets exposed. There is no proof that these measures will lessen the total number of deaths in the long run. What is certain is that the damage to both our economic well being and our civil liberties is much greater when these measures are employed.

    From a mathematical standpoint, the COVID 19 equation is a complex system of functions with many unknowns. The best we can do is get partial solutions based on approximations. The great delusion of social engineering is that political action and edicts have much more effect than they actually do. This delusive belief hads afflicted politicians since the beginning of time.

Free money’s flying out the window. This is surely a Democrat specialty. The Dems will always promise more .. After all, welfare recipients are their base.

    Unfortunately, there’s no way DJT or the GOP can drain the swamp or reduce the size of government if millions of people are being put out of work to “stop the spread”. I fully agree, the Covid-19 pandemic certainly is a Big Government wet dream come true.

    Where I digress, Mark, is where you state the mainstream economy shrinks and the public sector expands. The vast majority of the workers who lost their jobs are angry and want their jobs back. They don’t want welfare .. Only those who don’t want to work want welfare.

  23. @aspendougy

    I was _very_ concerned about CV back in February while NYC tourist bureau wanted people to visit from around the world and then (in early March) Spanish politicians lined up in Madrid for the women’s march.

    But–the issue was going to be flooding of hospital ICUs.

    We now know (hindsight is 20-20) that did not materialize in most of the world (and most of the US).

    So, lockdowns at this point are not justified–and the politicians have enough knowledge to come to the same conclusion.

    Folks have a good reason for anger at this point.

    I appreciate the Joni Mitchell, Dieter, but do you have cover of that Bob Dylan song? He wrote good lyrics, but I just don’t need to listen to him that badly…

    I can’t say anything about Mr. Cochran (never read anything by him), and but my quick impression of Mr. Karlin and my reading of Ron Unz’s stuff tells me that they only like to write about things that make Americans look terrible. Mr. Unz has some very good theories about what may have been hidden in America’s past, but all his conspiracy theories must be anti-Americans, or he doesn’t seem at all interested. On this COVID-19 thing, my impression is that Ron Unz is completely full of shit.

    I brought him up here because he uses this metaphor Idiot wind – for The Press – – – . This song is not too good anyhow, but – but, but geniuses even fail in very interesting ways. He gave his initial (biblical, by the way) reference to the zeitgeist at large in – Blowin’ in the Wind – all that stuff, that is blowing in the air – in the air we breathe, we inhale – – – he gave this metaphor a distintive turn in its direction and had it then that the zeitgeist turned into the realm of – – – Idiots – – – what I hadn’t thought of when I first posted Idiot wind as an answer to a comment of yours is – – – that this is your genuine territory – I mean, if I think of the title of your blog – – – Peak Stupidity.

    Anyways – I just wanted – I have a perverse knack for that, I admit here, that I’m guilty of that kind of misbehavior – – – I just wanted to make things a little bit more complicated than they look in your initial comment. To make my point simple: I don’t think this CO-19 business is simply us against them (the blogging sphere, let’s say, against the mainstream). – It’s also us against us – in the blogging sphere – even here at the Unz Review …! – Steve Sailer wrote a lot about Gregory Cochran’s CO-19 ideas in the beginning – in March, April. Cochran had understood, that Japan and South Korea and Tawan etc. had made some very smart moves – and look, what they got: A very soft landing, as it looks! – – – Cochran was right in this hindsight. but he was wrong when he proceeded from that and made predictions about the Infection Fatality Rate, that looks way off now (by a factor of 5 at least, but rather ten in the end. The same is true for Anatoly Karlin. I don’t condemn them for making wrong predictions, of course. But I’d hold that maybe now would be the right time for them to – make – – – – Corrections – (I love the novel by Jonathan Franzen with the same title).

    In Germany / Austria / Switzerland it could well be that the number of Fatalities caused by CO-19 lies at the level of or even a tad below those of a regular flu season, according to the quite insightful ex-Epidemiologist and Berne virus–expert Beda M. Stadler. He writes – in German, sigh – on achgut.com.

    At least in hot weather (32 Centigrade in Athens right now) a mask sweats your nose and face up and makes you more likely to cough or sneeze, not less. The air quality of Athens is nothing to shout about. Other than as a social compliance measure, most masks are of little value but you have to wear one to enter supermarkets, by Greek government decree. Although I have not seen it strictly applied. One supermarket insisted while in another the workers were not wearing them, much less expecting it of the customers.
    I think a lot of Greeks go through the motions so as not to be fined or closed down but think it is BS.

    A blogger named E.H. Hail used to comment here (mostly under iSteve), but he got sick of all the pro-Corona-panic stuff. I later pointed him to C.J. Hopkins and Mike Whitney here, and Mr. Sailer has been off the topic (with the one exception in my link back to Mr. Mouse) for months now.

    However, Mr. Hail had just gotten sick of the hype on unz, but his Hail to You blog has lots of his very well-written essays with lots of numbers and graphs. He got up through part 15 of a series on the Corona panic, and his concentration is on Sweden, along with America. It’s not quite your neck of the woods, but close. I one of his posts, he did give some numbers for cities in Germany, as I recall.

    If you have time, please check out Mr. Hail’s site. He gives numbers and other details, while Peak Stupidity is more about (mostly-) humorous rants and anecdotes. Speaking of those, and regarding this Season 2, or the Kung Flu re-Panic, we have a series of 6 parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6 – on this.

    Well, of course, Dieter. I don’t fault Ron Unz for whatever kinds of theories and predictions he’s made regarding the Kung Flu. He’s the proprietor here, after all.

    Maybe you didn’t read all the threads at the time, in particular under Steve Sailer’s posts, back over 2 months ago when Mr. Sailer was, to put it tactfully, quite worried about this COVID business. Mr. Unz came on there giving out his bogus numbers and math based on one basic ratio of which we STILL don’t have any accurate values of either the numerator or denominator (the mortality rate).

    OK, fine, comment away, Mr. Unz, you are the proprietor here. I take umbrage at this guy using silly names and insults for anyone in the comment section who disagreed with the idea of this Kung Flu being the next Black Plague, certain to kill MILLIONS in America, MILLIONS, I tells ya! The thing is, there’s no way Ron Unz could do anything but skim my comments, as I have nearing 14 thousand, and the site’s got many millions, I’d guess. Yet, he goes and argues with bits and pieces, and if you don’t agree, you are a whatever name he comes up with.

    He kept making threats about cutting off the comments from said commenters, but I’ll give him lots of credit for being true to himself here and not doing that, as he is a big stalwart for free speech. So, we come full circle here – I appreciate the site and the owner very much. That doesn’t mean the guy doesn’t act like a ‘tard sometimes. Same here, perhaps. ;-}
