Excerpts: “Overnight, our society is doing what radical leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her fellow Green New Deal fanatics have demanded: An almost total end to air travel; personal automobile travel down to a trickle; promises of free health care for all quickly becoming the new status quo; and the ability of people to sit at home without working and receive a pay check from the government. The Democrats want that to continue indefinitely.”
From the outset of this story of the ravages of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been cautious about coming to conclusions about what’s really going on. The information coming out of Communist China has been corrupted and unreliable from the beginning, and the inconsistent reports and estimates from the American medical experts engaged in virus mitigation have also clouded a clear picture from emerging.
Five weeks into the country’s shutdown due to the coronavirus crisis, however, it looks unmistakably like a big PsyOp – a psychological operation designed to entrance people for the purpose of hidden agendas. The whole thing, in fact, has morphed into what it was intended to usher in – a bare knuckles political-ideological battle for what our future will be like.
There’s a great quote I heard on Friday from a small business owner. She said “I’m no longer concerned about losing my life. I’m concerned about losing the life I’ve built.”
I have a long career of reporting on the politics of health care as well as national politics. In 2020, we are dealing with both of these areas: the medical issues of Covid-19 and how it is being politically weaponized, including as part of a much larger agenda that fast tracks a global system of surveillance, medical mandates, and control. The essential subtext is the politicization of everything due to this year’s fall elections and the hatred of President Trump by Democrats and the media.
There’s been what I’ve called a flu d’état – a takeover of our supposedly democratic political process by unelected and unaccountable administrative state medical bureaucrats who are deeply and permanently embedded in the system of modern medicine – a collection of businesses that now consumes about twenty percent of the Gross National Product.
Here are several issues that are hardly ever addressed.
First, we hear every day that more and more Americans have now died from Covid-19. As of this writing, the number of fatalities is reportedly approaching 40,000. But have they all really died of or from coronavirus, or with corona virus? In Italy, which was hard hit, there’s a credible medical report that 88% of the deaths were caused by the patients’ comorbidities – one or more serious preexisting conditions which, along with their old age, actually took their lives.
This past week, a study that included researchers from Stanford, released online before publication, reported the results of the testing of over 3,000 representative volunteers in Santa Clara County in Northern California The researchers determined that the infection rate could be between 50-85 times greater than previously thought. If that turns out to be the case, the death rate from Covid-19 will be less than from the seasonal flu.
We just don’t have the correct numbers – from China, which criminally covered them up, destroyed documents, and disappeared the doctors who tried to alert their colleagues and the world. We also don’t have accurate numbers from the United States, either.
This situation here is not necessarily the result of a nefarious cover-up – it’s just the way things go with science and medicine. Medicine, Inc. is not perfect; far from it. Yet we are being asked to trust these fallible self-selected scientific experts with the future of our entire civilization.
Overnight, our society is doing what radical leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her fellow Green New Deal fanatics have demanded: An almost total end to air travel; personal automobile travel down to a trickle; promises of free health care for all quickly becoming the new status quo; and the ability of people to sit at home without working and receive a pay check from the government. The Democrats want that to continue indefinitely.
