The ever-fearmongering CDC has been forced to admit that the true figures regarding deaths from coronavirus are extremely LOW. Of course, the mainstream media and most politicians (from both parties) will ignore this reality, but that doesn’t change the truth of it one iota.
Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19.
The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26% — almost exactly where Stanford researchers pegged it a month ago.
Until now, we have been ridiculed for thinking the death rate was that low, as opposed to the 3.4% estimate of the World Health Organization, which helped drive the panic and the lockdowns. Now the CDC is agreeing to the lower rate in plain ink.
Plus, ultimately we might find out that the IFR is even lower because numerous studies and hard counts of confined populations have shown a much higher percentage of asymptomatic cases. Simply adjusting for a 50% asymptomatic rate would drop their fatality rate to 0.2% – exactly the rate of fatality Dr. John Ionnidis of Stanford University projected.
More importantly, as I mentioned before, the overall death rate is meaningless because the numbers are so lopsided. Given that at least half of the deaths were in nursing homes, a back-of-the-envelope estimate would show that the infection fatality rate for non-nursing home residents would only be 0.1% or 1 in 1,000. And that includes people of all ages and all health statuses outside of nursing homes. Since nearly all of the deaths are those with comorbidities.
The CDC estimates the death rate from COVID-19 for those under 50 is 1 in 5,000 for those with symptoms, which would be 1 in 6,725 overall, but again, almost all those who die have specific comorbidities or underlying conditions. Those without them are more likely to die in a car accident. And schoolchildren, whose lives, mental health, and education we are destroying, are more likely to get struck by lightning.
And slowly but surely, medical professionals are beginning to awaken to the gross hyperbole (and even deception) of the mainstream narrative regarding corona. At this point, I would suggest that any medical professional who isn’t willing to acknowledge the hyperbolic nature of the corona narrative is doing so out of the blatant fear and intimidation that is being waged against them by the medical establishment—a medical establishment that is being bribed with millions and even billions of dollars from the federal government to go along with this charade.
A 30-year registered nurse I know, whose credentials include an RN, BSN and ACN, said this:
I have been a registered nurse for 30 years, the majority of which has been spent in the community health setting. All of my jobs during that time involved infection control, whether that was part of orientation and general practice or more often a vital part of my responsibilities as a manager. Quite frequently, I had the responsibilities of writing policies and procedures regarding infection control and also was responsible for training and oversight of infection control. I also have continuing education for my RN licenses and many of that also involve infection control.
None of what is currently occurring today (particularly relating to the wearing of masks) in any way squares with either my training, education or practice, and I have worked in a wide variety of settings from labor and delivery to home health to corrections and everywhere in between.
For my entire career, the wearing of masks was clearly understood to be to stop the possibility of gross contamination of a sterile field and to prevent the splashing of patient bodily fluids on the face of the medical personnel. When I was fitted (fitted - as in specifically conformed to my face) with an N95 mask, it was again clearly understood that this was to help prevent the gross contamination of tuberculosis, which is not caused by a virus. If our faces or the mask itself were altered in any way (loss/gain of weight, mask crushed, etc.), we understood we would have to be RE-fitted in order for the mask to work properly.
Besides the fact that the COVID-19 testing is completely flawed, the case and death rates grossly distorted, it is clear that if the fear-mongering that is being propagandized everywhere a person turns were actually correct, we never would have survived as a species. Even a scintilla of critical thinking easily shows how ridiculous current "recommendations" and practice truly are.
Never before in history have healthy people been so demonized and campaigned against. It is unprecedented and for good reason, because it is completely erroneous.
Regarding the massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, once again, things are not as they appear.
Israel has officially denied any involvement in the Beirut port blast. The Israelis also deny their frequent bombing attacks in Syria and any connection to the sabotage explosions and fires in Iran since the beginning of the year.
But a retaliation from Iran is just what Israel and the US Deep State have been waiting for so they can finally justify a war against Iran and impose a regime change like in Iraq. It appears that the Israel reign of terror and sabotage is now aimed at overthrowing the Hezbollah-controlled government of Lebanon.
The Israeli government is ruthless. Not only does it kill enemy leaders in Lebanon, but threatens to destroy Lebanese civilian infrastructure if Hezbollah dares to retaliate—just as they did in years past. How does destroying power plants, water supplies, roads and bridges help bring peace? It doesn’t, and it is strictly meant to antagonize the Lebanese public and turn them against Hezbollah.
As for the establishment “terror” label being attached to Hezbollah, it is true that Hezbollah is responsible for terrorist attacks in the past, but in the most recent decade the roles have reversed. The US Deep State and Israel have been creating and supplying terrorists to invade Syria and Iran, putting Iran and Lebanon in the forefront fighting Deep State backed terror in the Middle East.
The fires and small white flashes of either munitions or fireworks going off couldn’t have caused the ammonium nitrate to explode at all, let alone cause a nuclear-like blast wave. Scientific American explains what it takes to make an explosive bomb out of ammonium nitrate:
Ammonium nitrate does not burn on its own. Instead, it acts as a source of oxygen that can accelerate the combustion (burning) of other materials.
It’s relatively difficult for a fire to trigger an ammonium nitrate explosion. The fire would need to be sustained and confined within the same area as the ammonium nitrate prills.
Also, the prills themselves are not fuel for the fire, so they would need to be contaminated with, or packaged in, some other combustible material.
This is the second time this exact same weapon has been used, and the first was an attack on Syria in January of this year by Israel.
The only kind of warhead that is small enough to fit on a tactical missile to create this kind of shock wave is a small tactical nuke —which only the US and Israel have in the West.
I think this was a low yield tactical nuke with reduced radiation. I’m surprised no one reliable is taking radiation readings in Beirut. Apparently, everyone believes the propaganda about the nitrate explosion.
Since this has the same explosive pattern as the Israel attack on Syria 7 months earlier, I’m convinced that Israel and the Deep State are behind this—trying to destabilize the Lebanese government.
I think Israel not only knew about the fertilizer being there, their saboteurs must have started the fire before the strike to give a semi plausible reason for the huge explosion.
I think we are seeing a new kind of mini nuclear weapon here.
These educated but rigid thinking professors are basing everything on large nukes, the only ones we have pictures of. I think this could be a new kind of tactical nuke which has been under development and deployed secretly during the last few years. Well, they’ve seen one now [a nuclear bomb], even if they are in denial about what they are seeing.
I urge readers to watch my message from last Sunday in which I expose both the corona and Beirut explosion deceptions.
Plus, here is one of my interviews on Beirut television.
The architects of tyranny are working overtime right now. And they are smart, subtle, sinister and deadly serious. Great discernment and courage are required of us if we are going to overcome their evil machinations. Seeing through the corona façade and Israel deception will go a long way in helping us.
P.S. For the very first time, I am able to announce that we have reprinted the classic treatise of one of America’s most important (and least remembered) Founding Fathers, James Otis. The book is entitled The Rights Of The British Colonies Asserted And Proved.
From my Introduction to the book:
James Otis (1725 - 1783) is regarded as one of the most brilliant of America’s Founding Fathers. Considered the top jurist in Boston (and the role model for John Adams), Otis is probably more responsible for the sacred American doctrines enshrined in the Fourth Amendment of our Bill of Rights than any other single founder.
When Otis petitioned the court in 1761 in protest of Britain’s issuance of general warrants and writs of assistance, John Adams, who was present in the courtroom when Otis spoke, said this was “the spark in which originated the American Revolution.”
James Otis is also widely regarded as one of America’s two “firebrands” of the revolution, the other being Samuel Adams.
Otis’ writings and “pamphlets” were as instrumental to the cause of American independence as those of his friend, Thomas Paine.
This treatise comes from the mind of a scholar and the heart of a patriot. His explanation of the necessity of Natural Law to the cause of Liberty and Good Government is unequaled among Colonial writers.
In particular, this treatise was an impassioned appeal against taxation without representation.
This is one of Otis' finest works. Read this work, and step into the mind of a genius—and one of America's most important (and least remembered) Founding Fathers.
John Adams said this about James Otis: “I have been young and now I am old, and I solemnly say I have never known a man whose love of country was more ardent or sincere, never one who suffered so much, never one whose service for any 10 years of his life were so important and essential to the cause of his country as those of Mr. Otis from 1760 to 1770.”
