It’s been four months of lockdown/quarantine, or whatever you want to call it, and this is where we are:
Just about everything we have done in “response” to the virus has been a complete and utter failure. All the changes we’ve had to accept in our lives the past four months have amounted to that chart above.
Our governing class apparently doesn’t actually care about Coronavirus since they allow mass protests to go on during the middle of this “pandemic”. They’re selectively hysterical about all this. I’m sure I’m not the only one who officially stopped caring about coronavirus once it became clear that the governing class didn’t care, either.
If they truly cared about containing the virus, then they would have swiftly and vigorously crushed any and all mass public protests, riots and gatherings at the start.
But no. Those marching for Social Justice™ are apparently immune from the virus.
The moment the governing class allowed tens of thousands of people to gather in the streets, shoulder-to-shoulder, not socially-distanced, and in blatant violation of just about every CDC guideline, that was when millions of other Americans stopped taking the coronavirus seriously.
Just look at this ridiculous headline from the New York Times:
Then maybe these “experts”–who are so frequently cited, and whom we’re all expected to worship and submit to unconditionally–are total hacks who only got the title “expert” by kissing the right asses and having the correct politics.
Virus cases are spiking after seemingly getting brought under control by the end of May. Gee, I wonder what mass, nationwide event happened right around the end of May that could’ve caused that?
But now they’re acting like the protests have had nothing to do with the resurgence of the virus. They’re blaming it on Republican governors in Florida and Texas in a naked attempt to flip those states Blue in the election.
They’re really trying to seamlessly transition back to COVID-19 HYSTERIA as if they didn’t put it on pause for over a month to allow anti-white race riots, looting and a full-blown cultural revolution to take place.
Idiotically, Texas’s governor appears ready to cave to the media pressure and impose a second lockdown:
Republicans who try to govern based on pleasing the media will always fail, yet few of them ever seem to realize this.
It was a combination of massively increased testing and the protests that caused daily new cases to spike. Anyone who fails to understand this should not be in a position of power.
There are tons of cases that are asymptomatic now being diagnosed, which is why the cases are increasing way faster than the deaths.
But the bottom line is that the lockdown orders and the masks and the social distancing: it did not work at all.
It’s been four months and we’ve made zero progress against the virus, which we still somehow believe we are in control of.
How much longer can we do this? “Until we get a vaccine” is not a valid answer. People are already going crazy.
Just reopen the country, let people live their lives normally, and wait for herd immunity to take over. We’re probably pretty close already at this point anyway.
If the virus was as bad as it was hyped back in March, I wouldn’t be saying this. But time has shown that this virus is not that bad.
It’s obvious that total cases are way under-counted and total deaths are way over-counted. The CDC even admits total cases in the US may be 10x higher:
A larger denominator alone would dramatically reduce the death rate.
But not only should the denominator be much higher, the numerator should be lower as well. We’ve long known that the government has been over-counting coronavirus deaths:
There is a big difference between dying OF coronavirus and dying WITH coronavirus.
And this is a big deal because these people who merely died WITH coronavirus are still counted in the super-scary 💀OFFICIAL COVID-19 DEATH COUNT 💀.
But if the virus alone didn’t kill someone, and was instead merely an added complication in an individual’s already bad medical situation, then it seems to me like maybe we shouldn’t count that as a COVID-19 death, or at least put it in a separate category.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear or read about Coronavirus deaths, my assumption is that those deaths are solely due to Coronavirus–perfectly healthy people who caught the virus and died solely because of it.
But we don’t isolate those deaths. We group them in with the people who died with Coronavirus as well as a whole host of other medical problems like diabetes, obesity, etc.
The death rate–at least the perceived death rate–is extremely important because it governs our entire response to the virus. The higher the death rate the more drastic measures we take. It means the public is more willing to go along with the government’s plan to combat the virus.
But if the death rate is in reality much lower than the official figure, then it means the virus isn’t nearly as deadly as people believe it is, and thus much of our response to the virus is unjustified and unnecessary.
We’ve been dealing with viral pandemics for centuries. And there’s not a whole lot we can do to “beat” them. We must let the viruses run their courses. We like to think we’re in control, but we’re really not.
And the worst part is, the little part of this that we can control, we’ve totally failed on by placing COVID patients into nursing homes–essentially putting a fox into a hen house deliberately. In fact, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home policy was so bad that House Republicans have opened an investigation into it:
“The novel-coronavirus death toll in New York’s nursing homes is tragic. More than 6,000 American seniors died of COVID-19 in nursing homes and long-term-care facilities across the Empire State, yet grieving families have no answers for how this happened or who is responsible.
As the ranking member of the US House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, I am charged with investigating “preparedness for and response to the coronavirus crisis.” By all accounts, New York’s handling of the crisis in its nursing homes has been a colossal failure.
The failure demands investigation. We have to protect against similar tragedies in the future.
Our investigation centers on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision, on March 25, to force nursing homes to accept known COVID-positive patients while also prohibiting homes from even testing patients for COVID-19 prior to admission. This policy, which remained in place for more than six weeks, likely contributed significantly to the thousands of elderly deaths in New York nursing homes.”
According to the New York Times, 40% of total US coronavirus deaths were either nursing home patients or staff:
That’s more than 55,000 deaths. Here’s a state-by-state breakdown with each state’s nursing home share of COVID deaths included:
Consider this: 42% of all US coronavirus deaths are linked to nursing homes, while the total nursing home population in this country is about 1.5 million, according to US News & World Report. That means 42% of all US coronavirus deaths come from less than half a percent of the US population. So for the 99.5% of Americans who are not living in a nursing home, your odds of dying of coronavirus are significantly lower–and they were already significantly low to begin with.
Even despite the disastrous nursing home situation that the media refuses to talk about, and the over-inflated death toll, America has 26% of the world’s cases and 24% of the world’s deaths. We’re still doing better than we should be doing.
At the end of the day, I just don’t think the virus is that dangerous unless you’re over the age of 80 and/or have other underlying medical conditions.
As of today, we’ve run 41.8 million COVID tests in the US and have 3.3 million positive cases. That means we’ve tested about 12.6% of the total US population. That’s a pretty large sample size. The positive test rate is 8%, meaning 8% of the 41.8 million people tested were positive. If we expand that number out to the whole US population, then that would mean we probably have around 26.4 million cases of coronavirus in America–slightly lower than the CDC’s claim (headline posted earlier in this piece) that the actual case count could be 10x higher than the official number.
If we take the official and likely over-inflated death count of 137,000 (again, as of July 12) and compare it to the 26.4 million cases figure, we have a virus with a death rate of 0.0051–or half of one percent.
And if you believe, as I do, that the official death count is over-inflated, then the real death count is likely even lower than 0.5%.
And that’s for the whole population. But we all know older people have a far higher death rate than younger people.
These figures are a few weeks old, but according to the CDC as of June 17, 80% of COVID-19 deaths were people over the age of 65:
This is not to say that seniors don’t matter or anything like that. That’s not what I’m saying at all. What I’m saying is that life can and should go back to normal for most of the country–the people who are more likely to be hit by a bus than die of coronavirus.
We can’t do another lockdown. We can’t just keep the country frozen in time for much longer. Life has to resume for people. This has been a massive disruption to people’s lives. It’s borderline psychological abuse. You’re isolating people and disrupting their daily routines. You’re depriving them of the things they enjoy. Many people have even been deprived of their jobs, and now feel useless.
There’s only so much Netflix people can watch before they go insane.
The mass rioting and looting all over the country is not a coincidence. Yes, a major part of it is the mass brainwashing of America regarding “social justice.” Another part of that was the fact that the riots and looting were organized, encouraged and enabled by Elites.
But a major part of it was that people just wanted to get out of their houses and do something for a change. They wanted to feel alive and free again. A major reason the riots were so bad and so widespread was because of the lockdowns. People went crazy. If you think all of that stuff would have happened without the preceding 2.5 months of lockdown, you’re just wrong.
It would be one thing if this truly was a deadly virus worthy of our fear, but it’s not. At first, lockdown felt necessary–it felt like we were hunkering down and saving our own asses. It was nice to relax at home with the family and do nothing–for a little while.
But after the first few of weeks of lockdown, most people stopped fearing the virus. And that’s when the trouble started: because the lockdowns were still in place yet most people weren’t actually afraid of the virus anymore.
Once people realized the virus was overhyped, they started to resent the fact that they were under lockdown because of a virus that wasn’t that scary.
And now here we are in mid-July, with life still largely disrupted and paused.
Face it: COVID-19 just isn’t all that bad. Most of our efforts to “flatten the curve” and “slow the spread” have been entirely in vain. Masks are a joke, as is social distancing. By the way, if one works, why do we need the other?
We’ve been socially distanced for four months. We’ve only been wearing masks for three months because the CDC initially said not to wear a mask until they did a 180 and demanded everyone wear a mask everywhere at all times. We wrecked our economy voluntarily, and while it’s in recovery now, it’ll never be the same.
None of it has worked. The only control that we as a society have had over the virus was the choice of whether or not to transfer COVID patients to nursing homes, and many governors failed horribly there.
We are largely powerless against this virus. The virus is going to run it’s course, and that’s fine because the virus isn’t even that bad. Time to go back to normal.
