If the world is at war and the most prized territory is the mind of humanity, then there are at least two reality-bending fronts and questions in this war: (1) has the world experienced an extraordinarily dangerous and deadly “pandemic” from January 2020 to the present?; and (2) on January 6, 2021, did a rogue band of domestic terrorists and insurrectionists violently attempt to overthrow the United States government?
The reality-based community is waking up to the fact that the answer to both of these questions is, emphatically: No.
The keyhole-vision pictures inserted into our collective brain by these false narratives looked so real while we were caught in the middle of them, especially when the scary charts and photos were accompanied by equally scary and incendiary words. The sane and sober facts now provide a much more realistic, and much broader, picture and perspective. With time and space, we can now discern reality from narrative, fact from fiction.
Because language is so important and so misused and abused by the authors of these false narratives, let’s please stop using the words “pandemic” and “insurrection” unless they are followed by the term “narrative,” as in “fictional story.” We can also stop using the word “vaccination.” When we use the identifying labels that the false narrative authors carefully choose and apply in order to get us to admit to a fiction by merely repeating a false and misleading label, then it becomes much harder for us to later draw the hard line between stories that exist only in our heads versus stories that exist in objective reality.
The pandemic narrative, The Covid Scare, is a fiction. The 2020 Seasonal Flu is reality. The January 6 “insurrection” is a fiction. The sad fate of the abused and misguided Bonus Army 2.0 is reality.
THE COVID SCARE
As the facts continue to roll in, it is apparent that the “pandemic narrative” was the 2020 Seasonal Flu–together with its very real deaths, and very negligible everyday risk–repackaged and reframed, with the signficant help of perception-altering smart phones and computer screens, into The Covid Scare.
The sad and sober facts now show that Donald Trump himself stipulated, on September 19, 2019, via Executive Order 13887, to The Covid Scare talking points, namely: (1) that a non-lethal influenza could henceforth be labeled a “pandemic” and treated as such by public health authorities on the payroll of pharmaceutical companies; (2) that public policy required acceptance of the propaganda that “vaccination is the most effective defense against influenza”; and (3) that a 5-year federal government plan was necessary to increase influenza vaccination rates. Mr. Trump also accepted a $1 million inauguration donation from Pfizer, in 2016, after which he lost interest in investigating vaccine-caused injuries in children. The leader of the free world, from Day 1, thus may have fallen prey to the iron rule of incentivized human behavior–you get the behavior that you reward. Financial incentive bias and reciprocity bias explains how a man famous for his ability to “read a room,” became blind, deaf, and dumb to the fact that none of his one-time supporters have any interest in becoming Pfizer lab rats.
The relevant medical facts now show that the 2020 Seasonal Flu, like all prior seasonal flus, had a slightly increased mortality risk for only 1 percent of the population–the very old and very sick who were also isolated in nursing homes–and posed very little increased risk to anyone else. The 2020 Seasonal Flu is the fact. The Covid Scare is the fiction.
Esteemed Stanford professor, M.D., and statistician John Ioannidis, has weighed in and called “BS” on The Covid Scare. By his account, employing statistically relevant samples and using serum antibody tests rather than hocus-pocus PCR tests, the 2020 Seasonal Flu was a statistically normal flu season for the vast majority (>99 percent) of people. The people hit hardest by the 2020 Seasonal Flu were less than 1 percent of the population–the very old and very sick who were isolated in nursing homes. Moreover, isolation, more than anything else, appears to have increased their risk. According to Dr. Ioannidis, the median infection to fatality rate (IFR) for those under 70 years old ranged between .0027 and .59 percent. For the small percentage of the population who were over 70, already very ill, and isolated in nursing homes, the risk presented by the 2020 Seasonal Flu was very real: 2.7 percent. Thus, out of every 110 very old, very sick, and very isolated people who contracted the 2020 Seasonal Flu, 3 died. This figure may still be overstated because we have never before so closely examined the lethality of the seasonal flu on the elderly. Nevertheless, these are very real deaths of very real people. And at the same time, this is not the story of an extraordinarily dangerous “pan”-demic.
The fact that the WHO and CDC continually redefine the terms “pandemic,” “herd immunity,” and “vaccination” should tell us something about the nature of the war we find ourselves in. It’s not about health or safety. It’s about reality and who defines it.
When we remember The Covid Scare and all those who attempted to convince us and our loved ones into believing the lie that the 2020 Seasonal Flu was something much bigger and more broadly dangerous than it was, let us also never forget that the abettors of The Covid Scare–including most state governors, state and federal politicians, health officials, social media influencers, corporate media–are the reason that so many people died alone, isolated from their families and friends. The Covid Scare authors and abettors are responsible for two years of monstrous and unnecessary scaring of children, lockdowns, isolation, travel restrictions, face masks, countless business failures, spending-the-future through unprecedented money printing, and now capital-consuming inflation. They were in positions of authority. They had responsibility. They attempted to use a fictional crisis to reset the governed-by-the-consent-of-the-governed societal relationship into Warden v. Prisoner. And they failed, miserably. Going forward, we should not only ignore the wanna-be Wardens, we should actively avoid them and work diligently to unseat them from any positions of power that they currently hold. The wanna-be Wardens have proven, through their inability to discern fact from fiction in a time of crisis, that they pose a serious danger to civilized society.
They must go.
Technology (smart phones and computers and the ease of internet access) is what helped The Covid Scare authors transform the very real and very negligible risk of the 2020 Seasonal Flu into The Covid Scare. Technology will also solve this problem. Now that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected the The Covid Scare and has refused to force vaccinations on 80 million unwilling people, it seems that the likely next step is for the users of public transportation to recognize that, just as OSHA does not have jurisdiction over the seasonal flu, the CDC does not have jurisdiction over inter-state public transporation. No one on any subway or city bus should be wearing a mask. Real civil rights lawyers should be looking for opportunites to challenge the CDC’s claim that it has the legal authority to fine someone riding in-state public transportation $100,000 for not wearing an unhealthy mask on their face to prevent transmission of the seasonal flu.
The burden of proof is now on the The Covid Scare authors (and the CDC) to prove that the 2020 Seasonal Flu was a real and extraordinarily dangerous threat. They need to provide facts that refute Dr. Ioannides’ IFR rates for 99.9 percent of the population. They need to explain how the risk of a 5 year old contracting the 2020 Seasonal Flu (or its ever-evolving variants) is greater than the risk of injecting him or her with an experimental gene-modifying drug, where the drug purveyor is collecting billions from the U.S. government and at the same time is absolved of all legal liability.
