Impending Doom, Indeed!
We will not mince words. America is indeed suffering from a dangerous plague – a plague of misanthropic fear-mongering from the likes of Dr. Fauci, the Scarf Lady and the Biden’s new CDC director, among countless others of the self-designated Virus Patrol.
All three took to the mainstream media in recent days, with new CDC director Rochelle Walensky getting positively teary-eyed as she allegedly veered off-script to sound yet another Covid Alarm:
“I’m going to reflect on the recurring feeling I have of impending doom,” Walensky said, appearing to hold back tears.
“We do not have the luxury of inaction. For the health of our country, we must work together now to prevent a fourth surge.”
What? Where? Wait!
Here’s the source of Doom. Well, if you have your magnifying glass handy you might possibly spot it – the squiggle down there in the yellow box below!
Actually, she was not nearly done. When it comes to paint by the numbers exaggeration and hysteria the following is hard to top.
It seems that the reason for Walensky’s alarm is that from the winter-flu season peak on January 13th, when the 7-day moving average reported 251,912 so-called “new cases”, the 7-day rate had plummeted by 77.8% to 55,840 on March 15th, but as of March 28 it was down by only, um, 75.3%!
The nation is recording a seven-day average of about 57,000 new Covid-19 cases per day, a 7% jump over the last week, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a White House news briefing on the pandemic.
You can’t make up this kind of calculated mendacity, including, presumably, the off-script scripted tears.
That’s especially because it’s now an established fact that upwards of 60-80% of these “new cases” are not medical cases at all: They are asymptomatic individuals who got swabbed and had their nasal secretions run to at 35-40 CTs on the PCR test, which immense magnification systematically generates false positives based on harmless RNA fragments and dead viral debris.
Yet with only 15,000 to 20,000 actual infected cases per day at best, of which 95% will not result in serious illness, hospitalization or death, the head of the CDC is out yelling fire in the theater still another time.
“I remain deeply concerned about this trajectory,” Walensky said. “We have seen cases and hospital admissions move from historic declines to stagnations and increases. We know from prior surges that if we don’t control things now, there is a real potential for the epidemic curve to soar again.”
Walensky urged the public to “take this moment very seriously,” adding people should continue to wear masks, stay 6 feet apart and avoid crowds or traveling. “We can turn this around, but it will take all of us working together,” she added.
We have bolded the last sentence because that’s what the political class is really all about. They are forever searching out societal ills–some real, mostly imagined – that require state-orchestrated collective action to remedy. After all, that is how they gain power and pelf in the arena of politics and governance, and on that score the Covid-Hysteria was made to order.
By contrast, under a regime of spontaneous markets and social order, tens of millions of uninfected or asymptomatic people would never be getting Covid tests in the first place, and they certainly would not have been quarantining or shutting-down their normal economic and social lives.
All of that flowed from the misbegotten predicate that the coronavirus was some kind of modern Black Plague equivalent, but with a hideously perverted twist: Namely, that to stop its spread the healthy and well should be isolated at home or via distancing and masks on the infinitesimal chance that they might unknowingly have a sufficient viral load to transmit the pathogen in the community.
The fact is, back in the more benighted times of earlier centuries, they quarantined the sick, not the well; and when people got sick from seriously dangerous pathogens, they stayed home because they were too sick to wander around the community.
Stated differently, in the face of serious general contagions, society didn’t need officialdom constantly beating the tom-toms to induce fear-based changes in behavior that were not warranted by the facts at hand.
To the contrary, in the midst of real pandemics, communities quickly apprehended the dangers and organized themselves to cope. And when the sick stayed home or were committed to treatment or isolation facilities, real contagions and viruses eventually burned themselves out.
Not this time. There was no spontaneous community defense because the Covid is lethal to only a small subset of the population, consisting of the very elderly with weak immune systems and the co-morbid already suffering from other life-threatening conditions.
Beyond that, the”science” provides no basis at all for the notion that healthy or asymptomatic people transmit the virus. The political class’ false project of “stopping the spread”, in fact, buried the real science which overwhelmingly ixnays the whacko theory that healthy people going about their ordinary business are stealthy vessels of disease and death.
Instead, Fauci et. al. have seized upon the prosaic mechanics of human activity centered around social congregation, which inherently generates the probability that a respiratory virus–whether relatively benign or deathly – will spread through the community, and called it “the science”.
But that is not the science of Covid at all, which actually says that for 95% of the population it is not a lethal pathogen, as we will amplify below.
Instead, “community spread” is just an obvious mechanical fact of social life that got peddled as the “science” of lockdowns and became the basis for the whole regime of economic-martial law that has been stood-up since March 2020.
In any event, the sheer destructive absurdity of the matter was crystallized this weekend by the 55-year government lifer and windbag, Anthony Fauci, who has single-handedly made a mockery of “the science” and the U.S. Constitution during the past 14 months.
Said the sainted Dr. Fauci on the weekend CBS show:
“When the children go out into the community, you want them to continue to wear masks when they’re interacting with groups or multiple households,” Fauci proclaimed during an appearance on CBS News.
Fauci added that “children can clearly wind up getting infected” even if other kids they play with have been vaccinated against coronavirus.
With respect to the bolded phrase, what in the world is this dope talking about?
Of course, kids get infected with all kinds of germs which pass-around the classrooms and playgrounds, but in the case of the Covid, few of them get sick, virtually none are hospitalized and, thankfully, a nearly invisible fraction become fatalities.
Indeed, after a full year of this full-on Covid-Hysteria, here is what we know about the “kids”. To wit, there are 73.2 million of them in America (17-years and under), yet only 238 of them are reported by the CDC itself as being among “all deaths involving Covid-19″.
As a statistical matter that represents just 0.3 mortalities per 100,000 population. The tip-off that this is ultra-thin gruel by any standard can be illustrated many different ways, but here are three of them:
- For the same 17 years and younger population during the same period (weeks of February 1, 2020 to March 24, 2021), the mortality rate from all causes other that WITH-Covid was 51.9 per 100,000 or 160X higher;
- The WITH-Covid mortality rate for the truly vulnerable population 85-years and older was 2,460 per 100,000 or 7,500X higher.
- The pediatrics association estimates that kids account for 13% of Covid “cases”, but have accounted for only 0.05% of deaths – meaning that the survival rate is 99.993%.
Nor is that all. Even the CDC tables show that nearly 20% of the WITH-Covid deaths in this age cohort also included pneumonia; and that there were also 602 deaths from pneumonia that did not include a positive Covid test or physician’s diagnosis.
Stated differently, among the entire youthful population of 73.2 million, there were 194 deaths from pure Covid versus 602 cases from pure pneumonia and another 179 deaths attributable to influenza.
So why in the world is Dr. Fauci worried about children being “infected”?
The answer is simple: He isn’t.
His game is stopping the spread for its own sake, and taking 73 million children hostage to the dictates of the Virus Patrol is all in a day’s work.
In fact, when it comes to the science of picking statistical pepper out of what is self-evidently numeric fly-shit, Dr.
