‘Utterly baffling’ Really? Are you kidding me, or do you think we’re stupid?
You introduce -intentionally, or even otherwise – the bug into an elderly populated nursing home environment and you’re ‘baffled’? Now, of the same attention can be paid to the Gubbernor of New York state and the mayor of New York City…………

‘Utterly baffling’: 76 vets die of Covid at soldiers home

They stormed the beaches at Normandy, liberated Nazi concentration camps and fought the Cold War in Korea and Vietnam only to die in their beds from a virus that infiltrated the veteran’s center in western Massachusetts that was their home.

But on Friday the loved ones of the 76 veterans who, starting in March, died from the coronavirus at the Holyoke Soldiers Home, received a measure of belated justice.

Former Superintendent Bennett Walsh, a Marine, and the home’s ousted medical director, Dr. David Clinton, were each charged with five counts of “wantonly or recklessly” causing or permitting bodily harm and five counts of neglect or mistreatment of an older or disabled person, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healy announced.

“My heart goes out to the families that lost loved ones at the Holyoke Soldiers Home,” Healy said. “They risked their lives from Normandy to the jungles of Vietnam and to know that they died under these circumstances is truly shocking.”

Walsh, 50, and Clinton, 71, are accused of making the “disastrous decision” on March 27 to mix patients already displaying symptoms with healthy patients and accelerate the spread of Covid-19 through the center.

But the charges Healy announced stem specifically from the decision by the pair to place five asymptomatic veterans into what had been a dining area “a few feet apart” from four other vets who already had Covid-19. Continue reading “”

A 54-Year-Old Man Died From Eating Too Much Black Licorice

A 54-year-old man in Massachusetts suffered cardiac arrest after consuming too much black licorice, a new case report from the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) says. The patient was in a fast-food restaurant when he gasped suddenly and lost consciousness, according to the case report. His whole body began to shake, but he remained unresponsive even after those movements stopped.

First responders arrived about four minutes after the man lost consciousness and started doing CPR; they also shocked the patient’s heart four times and administered multiple medications, including naloxone, which is often used to treat opioid overdoses. The patient’s “mental status” returned, but then his pulse stopped, causing first responders to resume CPR.

He arrived at a hospital half an hour after he’d gone into cardiac arrest, still unconscious. “The patient was an unresponsive, middle-aged man who had undergone mechanical CPR and had no external signs of trauma,” the case report says. Doctors intubated the patient and performed an electrocardiogram (ECG), a test that tracks electrical activity in the heart and allows doctors to find and diagnose heart problems.

Doctors noted that the patient didn’t have a history of experiencing chest pain or heart failure. “He had a poor diet, consisting primarily of several packages of candy daily; [three] weeks earlier, he had switched the type of candy he was eating,” the case report says.

It turns out, the patient stopped eating his usual fruit-flavored soft candy and instead switched to eating licorice-flavored candy. The licorice-flavored candy contained glycyrrhizic acid, which is converted to glycyrrhetinic acid after consumption. Glycyrrhetinic acid, in turn, inhibits the enzyme needed to convert cortisol into cortisone, along with the metabolism of other corticosteroids, leading to increased levels of cortisol in the kidneys, which can set off a whole slew of problems in the body.

Will the COVID-19 Response Be More Deadly Than the Virus? Early Indications Say Yes.

When President Trump advocated reopening the economy, he warned that the lockdowns might have more of an adverse impact than COVID-19. Some assumed he was only talking about the economic implications but he also noted the risk of drug overdoses and suicides. We have seen increases in both of those types of deaths, along with significant mental health impacts.

However, the tragedy of extended lockdowns is compounded by people not seeking medical care.

The United Kingdom is noting this trend in raw numbers. From The Telegraph:

Unexplained deaths in private homes are nearly nine times higher than those from Covid-19 amid fears that many people are still not accessing life-saving medical treatment.

The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that there were 830 excess deaths at home in the week ending September 4 compared to the five-year average. In contrast, just 99 people died with coronavirus mentioned on the death certificate in the same period. Only seven of those died at home.

The figures also show that there were 371 fewer deaths in hospitals, suggesting hundreds of people who would normally have been taken in for treatment had died at home instead.

Even accounting for that number, it still means there are around 450 excess deaths a week at home, from unknown causes, of people who may not ordinarily have died.

Recent studies have shown that many people did not seek help for serious conditions, such as heart attacks, in recent months.

The article warns of the risks associated with the first lockdown, now that Europe may be experiencing a resurgence of cases. In the last eight weeks, 1,117 death registrations listed COVID-19 as a cause. Excess deaths at home were 5,556 leading some medical experts to warn the COVID-19 response is now more deadly than the virus. Continue reading “”

Each one of those ‘underlying’ conditions are life threatening in and of themselves, so we’ve locked down and disrupted the society and economy of an entire nation and made healthy people do all sorts of crazy things for a bug that is deadly to people that are already sick. A good question is how many of these people would have died anyway, even if they hadn’t caught thee bug?
Also, a point is the doctors were calling the deaths a result of the bug just because the patient had it and more even if they presented with a symptom of it and never did a test to confirm it.
Are the people who have been saying this has been a set up deal from the start the crackpots some made them out to be, or were they actually the ones who could see through the miasma of possible disinformation?

CDC: 94% of Covid-19 deaths had underlying medical conditions

The Centers for Disease Control released information showing how many people who died from COVID-19 had comorbidities or underlying conditions as they are sometimes referred to by doctors.

According to the CDC, comorbidity is defined as:  ” more than one disease or condition is present in the same person at the same time. Conditions described as comorbidities are often chronic or long-term conditions. Other names to describe comorbid conditions are coexisting or co-occurring conditions and sometimes also “multimorbidity” or “multiple chronic conditions.”

Comorbidity and underlying conditions can both be used to describe conditions that exist in one person at the same time. These can also contribute to a persons death who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Click here to read the entire report from the CDC.

The CDC said: 

Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.

The CDC says people need to always social distance and perform best practices when it comes to staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths.

* Influenza and pneumonia
* Respiratory failure
* Hypertensive disease
*  Diabetes
* Vascular and unspecified dementia
* Cardiac Arrest
* Heart failure
* Renal failure
* Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
* Other medical conditions

According to the CDC 9683 died in the United States with only having COVID-19 listed on their death certificate. Continue reading “”

A Telling Sign? Vaccine Top Executives Dump Their Stock

The U.S. Health and Human Services’ Operation Warp Speed has pledged to deliver 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 2021,1 if not sooner.2 However, developing a safe and effective vaccine normally takes years and begins with animal studies. The COVID-19 vaccines are all being rushed straight into human clinical tests, forgoing lengthy animal trials altogether.

Such fast-tracked vaccines pose unknown risks, which are further magnified since governments are granting COVID-19 vaccine makers immunity from liability for all vaccine injuries and deaths that occur after the vaccines are recommended (or mandated) by public health officials.

At the end of July 2020, AstraZeneca announced most countries it expects to supply with COVID-19 vaccine will grant the pharmaceutical company complete liability protection if people are harmed.

In the U.S., vaccine makers already have something of a “free pass” when it comes to vaccine injury liability and lawsuits through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 19865 and the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, passed in 2005. Continue reading “”

Some social workers denounce plan to pair with NY police for mental crisis calls
A group of mental health professionals gathered outside Buffalo City Hall, calling the planned partnership ‘unsafe and unproven’

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A group of social workers, mental health professionals and concerned community members met outside Buffalo City Hall Thursday to denounce Mayor Byron W. Brown’s proposal for a new police unit that would pair officers with social workers on mental health emergency calls.

Brown first outlined plans for a behavioral health team Aug. 22.

On Monday – two days after a Buffalo Police officer shot and wounded a homeless man who has a history of mental illness – Brown announced the new team would begin next month.

A group of social workers, mental health professionals and members of Agents of Change penned a letter in opposition to that plan, which was sent to the mayor and Common Council members Thursday.

“While embedding social workers into police departments or having social workers accompany police on mental health calls may appeal to the general public, it is ineffective, unsafe and unproven to reduce police violence in mental health crisis situations,” said Nicolalita Rodriguez, a clinical social worker, during a news conference on the steps of City Hall.

More than 3,000 contract bacterial disease after Chinese lab leak

More than 3,000 people in China have contracted the bacterial disease known as Malta fever following a leak from a lab last year, health officials said.

The outbreak originating from the Zhongmu Lanzhou biological pharmaceutical factory left 3,245 people sickened with brucellosis, the Health Commission of Lanzhou said, according to a CNN report.

Authorities have tested a total of 21,847 people in Gansu province, which has a population of 2.9 million, and another 1,401 people have preliminarily tested positive.

No fatalities have been reported. Continue reading “”

Pennsylvania’s pandemic restrictions are unconstitutional, judge rules
Lawsuit was filed by Butler, Greene, Washington and Fayette counties

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s closing of “non-life-sustaining” businesses and restrictions on gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic were ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge on Monday.

“We’re aware of the ruling and are reviewing the decision,” a spokesperson for the governor’s office said Monday afternoon.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV was made in a case in which Butler, Greene, Fayette and Washington counties are listed as plaintiffs. The counties had filed suit, claiming the shutdown orders were unconstitutional.

Stickman, an appointee of President Donald Trump, wrote in his ruling that the Wolf administration’s pandemic policies have been overreaching, arbitrary and violated citizens’ constitutional rights. Continue reading “”

More proof that the lockdown is a scam: Sweden, which never had a lockdown, or a mask mandate, now has a lower total, cumulative per capita COVID-19 death rate than the U.S.

Sweden never had a lockdown.

And Sweden never required people to wear masks.

In fact, Sweden never even recommended that people wear masks.

Making vaccines is hard. You’re trying to kill the bug, without making the patient sick, or worse, killing them.
It’s that ‘The cure can’t be worse then the disease‘ thing…….again.

AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine study halted after ‘potentially unexplained’ illness

Late-stage studies of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate are on temporary hold while the company investigates whether a recipient’s “potentially unexplained” illness is a side effect of the shot.

In a statement issued Tuesday evening, the company said its “standard review process triggered a pause to vaccination to allow review of safety data.”

AstraZeneca didn’t reveal any information about the possible side effect except to call it “a potentially unexplained illness.” The health news site STAT first reported the pause in testing, saying the possible side effect occurred in the United Kingdom. Continue reading “”

Coronavirus: Joe Biden Says He’s Willing to Shut Down Country Again

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden revealed Friday that he would re-lock down the United States if scientists recommended the extreme measure to stop the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

“I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists,” Biden replied when asked by ABC’s World News Tonight anchor David Muir if he would shut down the country if experts proposed the measure.

“I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus,” Biden, flanked by running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), said. “That is the fundamental flaw of this administration’s thinking to begin with. In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus.” Continue reading “”

“Let me tell you a story. It’s about six passenger flights from Wuhan that led to an unprecedented global disaster.”
These six flights help to explain why the entire world was gripped by fear, with consequences that we’ll be living with for many years to come.

In 2020, the world became convinced that a deadly coronavirus was plaguing the human race.

A virus that could kill nearly 1 out of every 100 people it infected, or so we were told.

Come with me, and I’ll show you where that belief came from.

Remember that in March, Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London predicted 510,000 Covid-19 deaths in Britain and 2.2 million Covid-19 deaths in the US. Healthcare systems would be overwhelmed.

This could only be avoided by “non-pharmaceutical interventions” (lockdown, etc.) Continue reading “”

U.S. reports fewer than 50K new COVID-19 cases for 3rd day in a row

Aug. 12 (UPI) — For the third day in a row, new COVID-19 cases in the United States have totaled fewer than 50,000 — the first time in more than a month that the daily national tally was under that mark for three days.

The case count Tuesday was 46,800, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.

There were 47,000 cases Sunday and 49,500 on Monday. The United States averaged around 60,000 new cases per day during July.

The last time new U.S. cases were under 50,000 for three days was July 4-6. Continue reading “”

Aug. 4 (UPI) — For the second day in a row, researchers say new COVID-19 cases in the United States have numbered under 50,000.

About 45,400 new cases were recorded Monday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, the first time since late June with two straight days under 50,000. There were about 47,500 on Sunday. U.S. cases averaged about 60,000 per day in July.

The university has recorded 4.718 million U.S. cases since the pandemic began and 155,400 deaths. Continue reading “”

We should follow Sweden’s model, ending the purposeless economic shutdowns. Common sense dictates that the best course is to continue masking where necessary, and maintaining social distancing. Meanwhile, like the Swedes, we should open our economy. And now, while we still have one to open.

One Swedish Model To Copy: No More COVID-19 Lockdowns

We’re getting an awful lot of very bad advice from public officials about how to handle the resurgent coronavirus pandemic. All of a sudden, we’re told, we must lock down the economy again, for our own good. Common sense and experience, it seems, have flown the coop. Just look at Sweden, which avoided a lockdown and slashed its daily COVID-19 death rate.

Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari is the latest to create a stir by saying he favored a “really hard” four-to-six week lockdown of the economy to get the virus under control and help the economy rebound later. Continue reading “”

Ohio Abandons Its Hydroxychloroquine Ban After Public Outrage

The state of Ohio has reversed its ban on the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus just hours after announcing the move. Outraged citizens pressured Republican Governor Mike DeWine to intervene and successfully shut down the ban. The Ohio Board of Pharmacy announced the ban to go into effect on July 30, but DeWine stepped in and snuffed out the ban Thursday.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Medical Procedure at Hospital

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has undergone a nonsurgical medical procedure in New York City and expects to be released from a hospital there by the end of the week, the Supreme Court said Wednesday night.

The court said in a statement that the 87-year-old Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive procedure to “revise a bile duct stent” at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The stent had originally been placed last August, when Ginsburg was treated for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas.

Yale Epidemiology Professor Touts Hydroxychloroquine Against COVID-19

“In the future, I believe this misbegotten episode regarding hydroxychloroquine will be studied by sociologists of medicine as a classic example of how extra-scientific factors overrode clear-cut medical evidence,” wrote Harvey Risch in a recent edition of Newsweek magazine.

Risch is not a writer for the New American, nor is he a truck driver, politician, insurance adjustor, real estate agent, or tax accountant. Rather, Dr. Risch is a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, and he said unequivocally that hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name of Plaquenil, is “the key to defeating Covid-19.”

Dr. Risch has published over 300 peer-reviewed articles, and is on the editorial board of several leading medical journals. He wrote, “I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines.” Continue reading “”
