Election Day At Last – For Whom The Bells Toll –

Trump’ s wild chase to hold his hate fests are over. The result of those that have happened in the past are beginning to be known. Here is the conclusion  that Trump rallies : “ultimately resulted in more than 30,000 incremental confirmed cases of COVID-19” and “likely led to more than 700 deaths.”  It so heart warming to hear that like Johnny Appleseed we have Donnie Virusseed criss-crossing the nation planting virus and death where ever he goes.

His gatherings have some people masked but the great majority of the folk have none and are crowded in together. What kind of man puts himself over the people who allegedly care to come to listen to him? Some suggest wearing masks interfere with a person’s freedom which is absurd because you do not have the freedom to cause harm to others. Masks prevent the spread of the virus and help to prevent a person catching it.

I suppose I’ll have the minority opinion from those who believe in the Deep State and do not believe in climate change who will tell me masks do not work. One person said do you arrest people if they won’t wear masks at the hate fests. Obviously not but if you wanted to protect those people you would not let them attend without a mask. Didn’t they do that at the debates? A simple step by Trump could have saved 30.000 people from catching the virus but he just did not give two cents worth of care for those people.

As for those people who say masks don’t work, do you think that any of them go about without masks. That’s what is so hypocritical about the Trump people. They know masks work to prevent the spread of Covid but in their delusionary support of Trump they say otherwise. The reason we still have so many brave health care workers tireless trying to save lives is because they wear masks. Doesn’t it make sense if they do it then others should do the same thing?

Some though point out that Dr. Fauci at one time did not advocate wearing masks. Here is what the Mayo Clinic says about that:

So why weren’t face masks recommended at the start of the pandemic? At that time, experts didn’t know the extent to which people with COVID-19 could spread the virus before symptoms appeared. Nor was it known that some people have COVID-19 but don’t have any symptoms. Both groups can unknowingly spread the virus to others.

These discoveries led public health groups to do an about-face on face masks. The World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now include face masks in their recommendations for slowing the spread of the virus. The CDC recommends cloth face masks for the public and not the surgical and N95 masks needed by health care providers”

What then can you say about Trump who puts those who come to listen to him tell his endless lies and who cheer “lock her up” at greater risk of catching Covid? Isn’t he showing the most extraordinary callousness toward those poor souls who gather before him? Fortunately the Quiet Americans figure out that Trump  cares so little for his supporters who truck in to see him that he must care even less for them and that is why they threw him out of office.

    Internal Documents Show The FBI Is Only Interested In Punishing Anti-Trump Speech By Its Employees

    Thu, Nov 5th 2020 9:23am — Tim Cushing
    It doesn’t pay to anger the man in charge. Trump’s DOJ is more vindictive than most, it appears. Documents obtained via a FOIA request by Lawfare shows the FBI is more motivated to hunt down internal critics of this administration than any other it has served previously.
    Two agents involved in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server have already been served up for punishment by this administration for their texted anti-Trump sentiments. Their political texts violated FBI internal guidelines — ones meant to prevent personal feelings from tainting investigations. But to date, the FBI really hasn’t done much about this sort of behavior. It took criticism of Trump to force the FBI to finally start dealing with this misconduct.
    As Scott Anderson and Benjamin Wittes point out, this recent discipline is an anomaly.
    Five employees, the documents show, have been disciplined for private communications using government devices in which they have criticized President Trump.

    US military cases and deaths/ UK statistics watchdog criticizes govt/prime minister for false use of statistics
    While we cannot rely on the Covid statistics that are being provided, still, new numbers for cases and deaths in military servicemembers were released yesterday that are worth a mention.

    Total cumulative diagnosed cases in active and reserve servicemembers “nears 59,000.” Yet only nine servicemembers have died: 3 National Guard, 5 Reservists and 1 on active duty.

    Hospitalizations: 755. Only 1.3% required hospitalization.

    The “mortality rate among military personnel is currently 0.017%” or less than one death per 6000 diagnosed cases.

    —————–
    From the Daily Mail, verbatim:
    Statistics watchdog scolds Number 10 for lack of transparency over Covid-19 data used to justify second lockdown
    The UK Statistics Authority slammed the use of unsupported data
    It warned of public trust falling apart if statistics are not used properly
    It comes amid accusations the Government used dodgy data for the lockdown
    A graph showed 4,000 deaths per day in December if no action was taken
    But the model has since been shown to be out of date and inaccurate
    Sir Patrick Vallance, No10’s Chief Scientific Adviser, suggested there could be a shocking 4,000 deaths per day by December 20 if nothing was done using a now-infamous graph

    Sir Patrick Vallance, No10’s Chief Scientific Adviser, suggested there could be a shocking 4,000 deaths per day by December 20 if nothing was done using a now-infamous graph. The scenario was based on the assumption that there would be 1,000 per day by the start of November. Real numbers of people dying are significantly lower

    How Could It Be Possible? Spending $25 Billion on Covid tests bought lots of them, but are any accurate? Spending $Billions on drugs bought us worthless remdesivir, suppressing cheap alternatives… and the article I wished I could have written
    How could it possible that so much of the Covid pandemic narrative: its bat origin (untouched by any lab); the story that human incursions into nature cause our pandemics and must be stopped; the saga in which effective medications are suppressed and useless ones are promoted; the way that cases are diagnosed; and the value of non-pharmaceutical interventions like masks–might all be false, based on fake science, fake statistics, and lying public health officials?

    How could it be possible? Chris Martenson wrote the article I wanted to write, and explains how he (and I) came to fall down the rabbit hole, and gradually came to accept a totally different narrative than the mainstream media and government officials have proclaimed. What happened to us is simple:

    He writes,

    Please read Martenson’s complete article. I understand that this is too much of a leap for many people to make, but if you have read this far, keep watching what is happening.

    Here is a lighter version of what Martenson is saying, in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal written by Holman Jenkins, Jr., published October 30. It is titled, “The Other Media Blackout: How can Americans use good sense about an epidemic about which they are fed false information?” His final sentence is, “We battle the virus, while being fed a colossally distorted picture of the epidemic and its progress by an incompetent and sociopathic press.”

    See how so much of what is written about Covid does not make any sense, and reassess what you hear, as often as you can. Try to put the pieces together.

    Today I received three news items that were so jarring to the Covid story we are meant to believe, so inconsistent with each other, that I had to mention them.

    —————————–

    First, we have been told that 25-50% of cases may be asymptomatic. Fauci said this recently, and it has been a standard belief since the start of the pandemic. (I happen to think it is way low. But anyway…)

    Second, we have been told there are 2 tests to use to diagnose a current case: the PCR test and the rapid antigen test. Using these tests, massive numbers of Americans have been diagnosed with Covid-19, up to 100,000 per day. Cases have been rising rapidly, and as a result harsher lockdown measures are being enforced in some states and some countries.

    Third, we assume that government officials want to reduce cases, that they impose quarantines and restrictions to protect us, and that they respond sensibly to the results of Covid tests.

    Here are the news articles:
    1. 75 prisoners at 2 Maine prisons, and 9 staff, have been diagnosed with Covid using rapid antigen tests. The vast majority of prisoners were asymptomatic, and a few had mild symptoms.

    2. “FDA warns about false positive results from COVID-19 (rapid) antigen tests.” Reuters reported that after false positive tests in nursing homes, FDA wanted to remind us that we can’t trust these tests.

    3. New Jersey state Senator Michael Testa released a leaked document from the NJ Department of Corrections, which directs correctional staff to release and transport Covid positive prisoners to train and bus stations on November 4. Staff are directed to wear full PPE while transporting prisoners.

    —————————-

    So, are the prisoners positive or negative? If negative, or noncontagious, why are staff donning PPE? If positive, why are officials releasing them to public transportation? Is the goal to cause more cases?
    Are the tests false positives? Or are most “cases” asymptomatic?

    Why are we using tests that FDA warns us may be inaccurate? Does any of this make sense?

    There are only 3 types of tests commercially available in the US: the rapid antigen, the PCR (a.k.a. molecular test) and the antibody test. There are dozens of different PCR and antibody tests. The antibody test is intended to tell you if you have previously had Covid. None are very accurate. FDA does not know how accurate they are, nor how they compare with each other. See my previous posts on the huge problems with PCR and antibody tests. All were approved by FDA under emergency use authorizations, and have not undergone full FDA screening and approval.

    Congress approved $25 BILLION DOLLARS for Covid testing, so we are doing lots of tests. We have shortages of reagents, shortages of other test materials, the tests are non-reproducible… but a lot of money was made available for testing, so, we are testing.

    Has it helped reduce cases? Has it prevented spread? Who knows. There is no way to tell. We cannot compare it to the past, because we were testing very few people then. We can’t compare regions, because so many different companies’ tests are being performed, even within one lab. Dr. Fauci has now admitted that PCR tests may be using cycle thresholds (35 and above) that are only testing for “dead nucleotides”–his words, not mine.

    You are being told to trust the science. And who am I to tell you, there isn’t any?

  8. How goes the revolution? All the contradictions of bourgeois society are evident. The apocalyptic moment is upon us. Chose the revolution. Down with the capitalists, and, their running dog lackies. It all starts tonight. It’s not about the ballots, and, their counting, but, about how many feet you can put in in the street. The stones will thunder.
    All praise to the fighters. All power to the dialectic.

    1. What is it with the running dog references? I never understood it. Running dogs are beautiful and express freedom and movement. Who was the author of that phrase? Mao? Pretty fucking stupid.

      “Down with the capitalists, and, their running pangolin lackies!”

  9. Trump never did move toward the center. To the bitter end, he played to his base. Too divisive. And too silly. Dying your hair blonde and coloring your skin orange is not a good look. Hope the country can unite behind Biden, who has faults of his own.

    1. Matt heralded Hillary’s victory and Trump’s defeat on election day in 2016. Matt again heralds Biden’s victory and Trump defeat today. Right now Matt has a 50-50 chance of being right.

      1. Health Experts advise people to not smoke ciggies. 480,000 die annually from ciggies and 48,000 die from second-hand smoking.
      Health Experts advise people to wear masks, social distance, and wash hands. Some people ignore the Health Advisories. One study found 50% of Americans wearing masks.

      2. MASKS: I read one article in Nature: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-02801-8: “In a review of observational studies, an international research team estimates that surgical and comparable cloth masks are 67% effective in protecting the wearer.”

      Nature concludes masks are “not infallible” but useful, and if we can get 95% of Americans to wear masks all the time, we’d save one hundred thousand lives by the end of the year. Good luck!

      If only people would stop smoking ciggies, stop using drugs, stop speeding, stop high fat diets, stop going in stores without masks.

      3. Nursing Homes (most N.H. patients have long lasting co-morbidities.) Studies show that about 40% of nursing home deaths are with Covid. Sixty percent of nursing home deaths have no Covid. Of the 40% N.H. Patients who died “with Covid” may have died “with” Covid and not “from” Covid. Covid may have accelerated many inevitable, imminent deaths.

      The problem in attributing deaths to Covid is that a pre-Covid study showed that there were about 1.6 million nursing home patients, and about 53 percent of patients had died within six months. Another pre-Covid study showed 300,000 nursing home patients annually die from Infectious Diseases, such as urinary tract infections, bacterial or viral pneumonias, influenza, diarrhea diseases, anti-biotic resistant staphs).

      4. The Stanford Study associating Trump rallies with 700 Covid deaths proved no causation.

      1. Roughly, 150 million have tested in U.S. for Covid and 10 million have tested positive, so about 7% (0.07) of tested are Covid positive. (Annually, in U.S. we had about 3 million deaths from all causes. (Actually, CDC reports all deaths for 2018 at 2,839,205 and 2019 at 2,852,609, so for simplicity we’ll round off annual deaths to 3 million.) If we had 3 million deaths in 2020, 7% would have died “with” Covid. Seven percent of 3 million is 210,000 dead “with” Covid. So without attributing whether a Covid death is simply “with” Covid, statistics alone would anticipate 7%, 210,000, of the Dead, would test positive for Covid.

        As of today, since March, we have about 237,000 deaths with Covid. Let’s say over year, from March 2020 to March 2021, there would be about 300,000 deaths “with” Covid. So we’d expect 210,000 statistically annually of dead would die “with” Covid. The excess deaths (300,000 minus 210,000) would mean 90,000 excess deaths likely (possibly, arguably) attributable to Covid.

        Understand, that perfectly healthy people have sudden heart attacks or strokes or infectious diseases or cancers and are dead within days or a few months. Persons with long term comorbidities oftentimes suddenly succumb to their underlying diseases and sometimes succumb to an unrelated disease (flu, or Covid, or staph resistance, or melanoma)
        All eventually inevitably will succumb to their underlying diseases or a new disease.

        We would not list Shingles as a cause of death (only 100 deaths per year associated with Shingles.) Simply because persons died “with” Shingles, did not mean they died “from” Shingles. Annually, about 500,000 have Shingles. We did not list as a cause of death if someone died “with” Acne. It is a legitimate question to ask whether we are simply listing Covid deaths as people who died “with” Covid, or people who die with similar symptoms. Pneumonia and Influenza symptoms are similar to Covid. (P.I.C.) Even if someone has Covid symptoms, we know that most have mild Covid symptoms and the presence of Covid symptoms does not mean the Covid caused a death.

        We will have to await retrospective studies to determine most likely how many died “from” Covid, not just “with” Covid.

    Why Democrats Still Love to Spy on Americans
    OCTOBER 28, 2020
    AMERICAN SPECTATOR
    BY JACK CASHILL

    Michael Hasting’s expose on John Brennan ended here. (NY Daily News)
    The very last op-ed progressive journalist Michael Hastings wrote for BuzzFeed was titled, “Why Democrats Love to Spy on Americans.” Ten days later, on June 17, 2013, Hastings emailed his BuzzFeed associates warning them, “The Feds are interviewing my ‘close friends and associates.’ ” He added that he was “onto a big story” and had to go “off the rada[r] for a bit … hope to see you all soon.”
    Hastings did not get to see those associates soon or otherwise. In the early morning hours of June 18, his leased Mercedes crashed into a palm tree at high speeds in a residential Los Angeles neighborhood. The car burst into flames upon impact, and Hastings’s body was burned beyond recognition.
