At the time of writing, the death toll for the coronavirus pandemic eclipsed 56,000 — approaching the number of combat casualties for Americans during the Vietnam War. However, when you consider that over 115,000 people have contracted the virus and recovered, over 1 million Americans have tested positive for the virus overall, and that many, MANY more Americans have likely come into contact but remained asymptomatic, our understanding of the virus changes entirely.
The revelations about Coronavirus have been coming in fast and hard, changing the way we think about the “pandemic.”
We know now that the virus did, indeed, originate in Wuhan, China. We know that the advice of the World Health Organization had the effect of promoting Chinese propaganda about the nature and the origin of the disease. We also know that the death rate of those who have been infected and develop COVID-19 is much lower than has been supposed.
These facts have been verified and corroborated by numerous authoritative sources. These facts have been suspected by many since the beginning of the “pandemic.” They are an important part of the reasoning of those who protest lockdown ordinances, and those who suspect that the virus is a psychological weapon designed to cripple our economy.
Even now, the mainstream news networks are still pushing the same lines. They are saying that those who want to reopen the economy care more about money than lives. They are saying that people who go about their business without masks are as bad as murderers, and they are encouraging people to turn in their neighbors if their neighbors break social distancing guidelines.
Many politicians are also clinging bitterly to the lockdown rhetoric. They continue to threaten citizens with fines and jail time if they do not obey quarantine protocol. Despite the fact that the virus has at worst, a death rate of .5%, and at best .4%, we still have government leaders calling for stricter lockdown protocols as well as additional surveillance powers to track those who are not proven immune.
But despite the continued scramble to wield power over the American people, the so-called pandemic is now being brought under control.
Recently, Bill Clinton held a teleconference with California Governor Gavin Newsom discussing what they call “contact tracing.” This would be a technologically based means of marking those who have been diagnosed with the virus and anyone who comes into contact with them. This would be a dramatic expansion of current surveillance powers, and as any student of history knows, once the government obtains a new power over citizens they never relinquish that power.
To maintain their hopes of expanded power, they have to convince the public that the threat has never come under control, and that additional “waves” are likely to occur.
To be clear, we are not denying that the Novel Coronavirus exists, that it has caused deaths, and that it is dangerous. What we are saying is that the danger has been vastly exaggerated, and that those who would wield control over you are taking advantage of the fear. But the real threat has always been less than the flu, car accidents, and far less than the harm done by medical error, which has been on the rise since medical records have been digitized.
Stanford University professor of medicine Dr. Jay Bhattacharya recently told Tucker Carleson, “I don’t think it’s as deadly as people thought. The World Health Organization estimated initially 3.4%. It’s likely, much closer to the death rate that you see from the flu per case.”
