They have spies and thugs out the wazoo. In Flushing NY they sent goons out to beat up protestors. They also have to bribe people into being CCP supporters at there 7-12 people anti protest groups. All souless thugs doing the ccp's bidding.

Join Epoch Times senior investigative reporter Joshua Philipp as he looks into the origins of the novel coronavirus—the CCP virus.

Philipp's investigation covers the facts from the Huanan Seafood Market to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. As he digs deeper, he finds suspicious activity connected to China's communist authorities and its military. Through the investigation, featuring top scientists and national security experts, a more complete understanding of the situation surrounding the rise of this pandemic is unearthed. Official reports and publicly available information soon lead to more questions and surprising findings.

The CDC Confesses to Lying About COVID-19 Death Numbers

By Matthew Vadum

Can any government statistics on COVID-19 deaths be trusted?
It is an open question now that we are learning that the highly respected, world-class Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been lying to us.
This revelation comes a few days after I wrote here at American Thinker that New York City was lying about COVID-19 deaths. The normal rules about reporting deaths have been violated by that city in the rush to inflate the body count, presumably to steer more taxpayer money to the Big Apple.
That the CDC isn’t telling the truth to Americans is no conspiracy theory: it’s right out there in the open for everyone to see. The CDC openly admits that it is fudging the COVID-19 death figures.
We know this because, among other truth-tellers, a plainspoken small-town physician from Kalispell, Montana, has pulled back the curtain.
Dr. Annie Bukacek, MD, explained in a presentation how death certificates are made. (See “Montana physician Dr. Annie Bukacek discusses how COVID-19 death certificates are being manipulated,” YouTube, April 6)
Why should anyone care how a certificate of death is made?
Everyone should care “today when governments are making massive changes that affect our constitutional rights and those changes are based on inaccurate statistics,” Bukacek says.
The system is deeply flawed, she argues.
Few people know how much individual power and leeway is given to the physician, coroner, or medical examiner, signing the death certificate. How do I know this? I've been filling out death certificates for over 30 years.
More often than we want to admit, we don’t know with certainty the cause of death when we fill out death certificates. That is just life. We are doctors, not God. Autopsies are rarely performed and even when an autopsy is done the actual cause of death is not always clear. Physicians make their best guesstimate and fill out the form. Then that listed cause of death … is entered into a vital records data bank to use for statistical analysis, which then gives out inaccurate numbers, as you can imagine. Those inaccurate numbers then become accepted as factual information even though much of it is false.​
This has been the way it has been done for some time, Bukacek says.
So even before we heard of COVID-19, death certificates were based on assumptions and educated guesses that go unquestioned. When it comes to COVID-19 there is the additional data skewer, that is –get this— there is no universal definition of COVID-19 death. The Centers for Disease Control, updated from yesterday, April 4th, still states that mortality, quote unquote, data includes both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19. That’s from their website.
Translation? The CDC counts both true COVID-19 cases and speculative guesses of COVID-19 the same. They call it death by COVID-19. They automatically overestimate the real death numbers, by their own admission. Prior to COVID-19, people were more likely to get an accurate cause of death written on their death certificate if they died in the hospital. Why more accurate when a patient dies in the hospital? Because hospital staff has physical examination findings labs, radiologic studies, et cetera, to make a good educated guess. It is estimated that 60 percent of people die in the hospital. But even [with] those in-hospital deaths, the cause of death is not always clear, especially in someone with multiple health conditions, each of which could cause the death.​
Bukacek refers to a March 24 CDC memo from Steven Schwartz, director of the Division of Vital Statistics for the National Center for Health Statistics, titled “COVID-19 Alert No. 2.”
“The assumption of COVID-19 death,” she says, “can be made even without testing. Based on assumption alone the death can be reported to the public as another COVID-19 casualty.”
There is a question-and-answer section on the memo.
One question is, “Will COVID-19 be the underlying cause?”
The answer is: “The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID-19 being the underlying cause more often than not.”
Another question is, “Should ‘COVID-19’ be reported on the death certificate only with a confirmed test?”
The answer is:
“COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” [Boldfacing in original]​
“You could see how these statistics have been made to look really scary when it is so easy to add false numbers to the official database,” Bukacek says. “Those false numbers are sanctioned by the CDC.”
“The real number of COVID-19 deaths are not what most people are told and what they then think,” she says.
“How many people have actually died from COVID-19 is anyone’s guess … but based on how death certificates are being filled out, you can be certain the number is substantially lower than what we are being told. Based on inaccurate, incomplete data people are being terrorized by fearmongers into relinquishing cherished freedoms.”
It’s hard to argue with what Dr. Bukacek says, but no doubt angry social media mobs will find a way as her chilling words enlighten the populace that has been bullied into submission.
Of course, the disease’s body count is not the sole concern we should have about the Chinese contagion, but it is undeniably the primary driver of the rampant mass hysteria that has allowed state and local governments across America to crush our cherished civil liberties.
As they say in newsrooms: if it bleeds, it leads. Deaths are always going to be more “sexy” than confirmed cases. It is the number that really, really counts, and Americans know this.
The fraudulent death statistics also give ammunition to the legions of snitches and scolds who try to shame their fellow Americans for attending church or playing catch in an empty park or taking a harmless drive in the countryside to prevent themselves from going stir-crazy.
The fake death data from the CDC, coupled with wild guesstimates from experts, and the relentless barrage of fear porn the mainstream media subjects Americans to around the clock, have been getting results, even with a plague that is, so far at least, underperforming.
First, experts told us 2.2 million Americans would die. Then the number fell off a cliff, plunging down to around 200,000.
As of April 8, the number of those expected to die from the disease by August 4 was down to 60,000, or roughly a very nasty flu season. The new figure comes from the influential model produced by the University of Washington that the White House regularly cites.
Has social-distancing, wearing face masks, hosing down packages with bleach, using hand sanitizer that is at least 60 percent alcohol, and washing hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds helped bring the grim worst-case-scenario body count down?
Probably, I’m guessing, but it’s hard to know for sure.
Maybe those epidemiological modelers can be forgiven for scaring the bejeezus out of Americans. Epidemiology is not, after all, an exact science, as its practitioners sometimes acknowledge.
But those who have force-fed modelers skewed data that led to the terrifying death forecasts that stampeded governors into pushing the nation down the road to totalitarianism need to be held to account.
Let the investigations begin.

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-reportedly-said-reject-bailout-193313887.html Trump says no Corona virus help for the Post Office...
  • President Trump reportedly said he wouldn't sign the CARES Act — the $2.2 trillion stimulus package — if it contained bailout funding for USPS, according to The Washington Post.
  • Lawmakers have warned the postal service could run out of money by June.
  • USPS is asking Congress for a $50 billion bailout and $25 billion in loans from the Treasury Department to make up for losses.
  • At least 19 USPS workers have died from COVID-19, and around 500 have been infected, USPS leaders told lawmakers.

I don't disagree with this, however there would be chaos if the post office were to go away. Just the loss of registered mail would disrupt a lot of things. That's how most PMs get delivered, isn't it?

Stop with the nonsense, that's one of the reasons why we are in this mess. Think who will get blamed? Trump for not bailing them out again and again and again with taxpayer money or Amazon for being rich, not paying taxes & exploiting a needed public service?

What I want to know is how they get such cheap pricing. Fed Ex told them to stuff it. Why don't the head of the post office do the same thing? Hard to run a mail order business paying "fair" prices.

The board that runs the USPS has given away the farm with Sweet-Heart Deals to Amazon and other majors. And have taken over the Business Ads/Shoppers' Weeklies/ "Fliers"/ "Hand Bills" Door to Door that used to be paid for by the individual businesses to independent contractors. My brothers and I used to make money by delivering "Hand Bills" for local grocery stores, Carpet Cleaners Specials, Drug Stores, Restaurants, ...
Plus years ago the Federal Gov. passed a law giving the ChiComms a similar deal to Commie Businesses shipping into the US. That LAW is still on the books and the USPS loses money on every piece from Commie China without a subsidy for reimbursement.
By Law the USPS has to FUND 100% of all Postal Retirees Obligations. All other agencies of the U.S.Gov. simply make Retirement Obligation a line item in their fiscal budget requests.
FEDEX and UPS have dump contracts for most of their final destination deliveries. Another LOSS Leader the masters of the USPS have "F" up.
All on the backs of people who buy stamps and use the postal service.

If Trump can't get the House and Senate to agree with him, he must be in the wrong. I hope the package gets blocked because the Moral Hazard of bailing out failing businesses is wrong.

Many were not failing until lockdown. That puts responsibility on the government. Many truly failing businesses will not re-open.

Why would you do that unless you were getting something out of it. Anyone that looks at it knows it simply "don't add up".
A mistake is one thing........ ignoring the facts & bleeding the people for more and more taxes to pay for your corruption must stop!

But then again that does explain how China sells & has free shipping for a cheap item........ corruption.

We are paying for it one way or another. Either through postal fees or taxes or debt. Take these people's credit cards away from them and make them run it like a business!

USPS is needed by society but not to subsidize china & amazon. Very same thing can be said for all the businesses that want free shit but rarely create the number of jobs that were promised! Very much like the footprint of an electric car vs a gas car when EVERYTHING is factored in.

EDIT TO ADD; I always thought walmart was subsidized by china as distribution locations for their crap. That makes it an act of war. Infiltrate, screw American businesses into before forced to make things in china, put mom & pop stores out of business, get every tax deal they can. Simple when you look at it as a long term plan. China makes long term plans. US makes 4 year election cycles.

I personally, while not really religious, detest these governors making church gatherings illegal. The way I see it is that religious freedom was one of the reasons this country became what it is. This means to me, if a certain church wants to handle rattlesnakes and people get killed it was their religious right to do so and is none of my business. Regardless the governor's and mayor's think they have the right to deny religious freedoms among other things these days. However this judge follows my thoughts exactly so I am not alone in my thinking.

For Easter, a federal judge wrote a luminous decision defending religious liberty
By Andrea Widburg
On Saturday, American Thinker pointed out that Democrat-run jurisdictions, at both the state and the local level, seem to be enjoying a little too much the power that a public health emergency has put into their hands. One of the examples was the order Mayor Greg Fischer issued in Louisville, Kentucky. He banned all Easter services, including drive-ins, and explicitly instructed his police department to write down the license plate numbers of people attending a drive-in Easter Sunday service.
The On Fire Christian Center sought an emergency temporary restraining order in the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. Not only did Judge Justin R. Walker, a Trump appointee, issue the restraining order, he also wrote a stirring and almost poetic defense of religious liberty in America. You can read the entire 20-page decision here, but this post will highlight just a few examples of the points Judge Walker made to support his order.
The decision begins by describing how, more than anything else, America was built the idea of religious liberty. He explains how the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth willingly suffered hardships in their search for a promised land and a place to worship freely, and how America’s drive for freedom of worship led to the Constitution’s unique promise that government may not interfere with the “free exercise” of religion.
At the time of that Amendment’s ratification, religious liberty was among the American experiment’s most audacious guarantees. For millennia, soldiers had fought and killed to impose their religious doctrine on their neighbors. A century before America’s founding, in Germany alone, religious conflict took the lives of one out of every five men, women, and children. But not so in America. “Among the reasons the United States is so open, so tolerant, and so free is that no person may be restricted or demeaned by government in exercising his or her religion.” (Footnotes omitted.)​
Walker acknowledges that pockets of America have failed to live up to this audacious idea. Sometimes these actors were individuals and sometimes they were government entities. While individual actors are bad, the consequences are profound when it's government that impinges on religious worship:
It threatens liberty of all kinds. That’s because, as de Tocqueville wrote, “religion, which among the Americans never directly takes part in the government of society, must be considered as the first of their political institutions; for if it does not give them the taste for liberty, it singularly facilitates use of it.” (Footnote omitted.)​
From this starting point, Walker discusses the facts of the case, which boil down to Mayor Fischer’s conclusion that COVID-19 allowed him to use police power to block all forms of worship, even if parishioners remained in their cars, separated from each other.
Walker acknowledges that society has an interest in preventing a deadly disease from spreading. However, that does not mean the state can engage in “‘a plain, palpable invasion of rights secured by the fundamental law.’”
One of the main problems with Mayor Fischer’s edict is that it manifestly is not neutral but is targeted at religious worship. The Mayor is fine with other drive-through behaviors, “including, for example, drive-through liquor stores.” The Mayor also did not ban parking lots, “including, again, the parking lots of liquor stores.”
Indeed, Walker notes, Louisville holds that liquor stores are an “essential” activity, allowing drive-through liquor stores with pick-up windows, parking in lots outside of liquor stores, and even entering liquor stores while others were shopping. And it was in this context that Judge Walker wrote timeless words that should go down in American judicial history:
The Court does not mean to impugn the perfectly legal business of selling alcohol, nor the legal and widely enjoyed activity of drinking it. But if beer is “essential,” so is Easter.
There are several pages more of strong legal analysis supporting Judge Walker’s conclusion that Mayor Fischer violated the Constitution. In closing, though, Judge Walker doesn’t summon the law. He looks, instead, to the faith that underpins Christianity and that our Constitution protects:
The Christians of On Fire . . . owe no one an explanation for why they will gather together this Easter Sunday to celebrate what they believe to be a miracle and a mystery. True, they can attempt to explain it. True, they can try to teach. But to the nonbeliever, the Passion of Jesus – the betrayals, the torture, the state-sponsored murder of God’s only Son, and the empty tomb on the third day – makes no sense at all. And even to the believer, or at least to some of them, it can be incomprehensible as well.​
But for the men and women of On Fire, Christ’s sacrifice isn’t about the logic of this world. Nor is their Easter Sunday celebration. The reason they will be there for each other and their Lord is the reason they believe He was and is there for us. For them, for all believers, “it isn’t a matter of reason; finally, it’s a matter of love.​

Taiwan Releases Email Showing They Warned the WHO in December About Virus, Were Ignored



Well, this may explain why the World Health Organization has been so hostile to Taiwan during the Wuhan virus pandemic, with the Director-General even accusing the tiny nation of racism last week.



Apparently, Taiwan sent an email in December to the WHO warning them about the occurrence of a new disease in China and asking for more information. That information being investigated that early in the game could have saved tens of thousands of lives. Instead, Taiwan was ignored.



Remember, by mid-January, despite these warnings, the WHO was still insisting that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. They hadn’t pushed China or sounded the alarm at all, instead letting the communist nation essentially write the press releases being put out. Even when it became clear China had lied and covered up the outbreak, the WHO still accepted their information as fact, something they are continuing to do to this day.



Perhaps the worst part of this regarding Taiwan is how they’ve been treated by people like Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and his lackeys. An official from the WHO literally hung up on an Asian journalist not controlled by China’s state party because she asked about Taiwan. These people are so deep in the pocket of the Chinese that they can’t see daylight out the top.



Rumor has it that President Trump will lay out guidelines for us to begin to reduce funding and put the squeeze on the WHO. That’s absolutely the right move. We’ll see if the media choose to support what’s right or if they side with China again.

https://www.vox.com/2020/1/23/21078325/wuhan-china-coronavirus-travel-ban



That means Trump enacted a travel ban from China on 1/19/2020 against ALL recommendations. How did the media respond?



Look what reporters and the "expert" health officials and doctors said then compared to how they are eviscerating Trump now for "not acting fast enough." I think it's time we all understand how these companies are obviously working in concert against our president.

Another trip to Bellevue Hospital and the NYC Morgue. Cannot see any visible signs of over crowding or overworked staff. Asked several hospital workers if there is overcrowding inside the hospital and they all sound surprised at my question. Then there is the prize Media Circus when the FDNY lined up more than a dozen trucks in front of NYU Langone and started blasting their sirens to create a spectacle.

Lady on the radio today in Michigan. She had to go to the hospital (not flu or virus related) and had 4 nurses to her. They had nothing else to do.
They were serious but joked don't die on us or we have to report it as a covid19 death........ really we do.

This Is The 'Supercut' Video President Trump Just Played In The White House Press Briefing



Daily Caller
@DailyCaller






This is the supercut video President Trump just played during the coronavirus briefing. It includes clips of MSNBC and CNN pundits downplaying coronavirus, @maggieNYT defending his China travel ban, and Govs. Cuomo and Newsom praising his administration's response. Trump explained that the montage was simply thrown together quick by a couple of White House staffers, who have hundreds more clips - even better clips, in some cases - that they could have used, Trump said.

World's Largest Pork Producer Shutters Key US Factory After COVID-19 Outbreak, Warns Of Shortages

Operations at one of Smithfield Foods' key U.S. factories have been brought to a halt after a coronavirus outbreak among employees. Smithfield is the world's biggest pork producer.


Now, the company is warning that meat supplies are "perilously close to the edge of shortfalls," according to Bloomberg.


The company is shuttering its Sioux Falls, SD plant, which accounts for 4% to 5% of U.S. production. The news comes after more than 200 cases of Covid-19 were reported among employees.



Smithfield’s Chief Executive Officer Ken Sullivan said: “The closure of this facility, combined with a growing list of other protein plants that have shuttered across our industry, is pushing our country perilously close to the edge in terms of our meat supply. It is impossible to keep our grocery stores stocked if our plants are not running.”



Smithfield had planned on closing their plant for 3 days, but South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem asked them to extend the closure to 14 days.

Replying to @govkristinoem



The situation at Smithfield is a challenging one. They've self-imposed a 3-day shutdown of the plant. And while I applaud them for that, more decisive action is needed.

That's why we've asked Smithfield to close the plant for two full weeks. (7/8)

The plant has 3,700 employees who will continue to receive pay for at least two weeks during the shutdown. The plant won't re-open until Smithfield gets the nod from local, state and federal authorities.


The news again highlights how fragile the world's supply chains are during a global pandemic, especially as worried citizens hoard food items and clean out grocery stores. There have also been bottlenecks with trucks and ports, exacerbating efforts to get food from producers to consumers.


Worker safety also remains an issue, especially after deaths have been reported at meat factories owned by JBS SA and Tyson Foods. Workers not only share workspace in many of these factories, but are also in close quarters in break rooms and locker rooms.



The risk at these plants remains among the employees and not with the end-consumer, since Covid-19 isn't a foodborne illness. But when an employee gets sick, the plant needs to be quarantined and closed for deep cleaning, which costs valuable time, money and resources.

Sullivan continued:
“Unfortunately, Covid-19 cases are now ubiquitous across our country. The virus is afflicting communities everywhere. The agriculture and food sectors have not been immune. We have continued to run our facilities for one reason: to sustain our nation’s food supply during this pandemic.”
“We have a stark choice as a nation: we are either going to produce food or not, even in the face of Covid-19,” Sullivan concluded.​
Recall, back in late March, we wrote an article noting that the people responsible for handling the world's food supply at places like Smithfield were starting to get sick.

Morgan Stanley Publishes Full Timeline Of Upcoming Coronavirus Milestones; Sees Second Coronavirus Peak In December
Perhaps more surprising, and diabolical, is what the hell is a bank doing evaluating a so called medical pandemic.

Not only did China admit to harvesting and editing over 100 versions of the coronavirus, but they also fingered the National Institute of Health (NIH) as the government agency responsible for awarding close to $4 million in research grants to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.



According to an article published by Daily Mail, “The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. government.”



Experimenters grew the virus in a lab and injected it into three-day-old piglets. Intestinal samples from sick piglets were ground up and fed to other piglets as well.



Daily Mail



The same article states that it’s a “conspiracy theory” to think that COVID-19 came from the Biosafety Level 4 Laboratory (BSL-4) in Wuhan, and stressed that the virus originated in a bat conveniently located only 20 miles away from the lab at Huanan Seafood Market. There’s a big problem with this however. No bats were ever found being sold at the Huanan Seafood Market.

This seems like an appropriate time to note that the Biosafety Level 4 Laboratory (BSL-4) in Wuhan is a specially designated World Health Organization (WHO) research lab.



Nature



In other words, the virus did not have the ability of being passed from animal to human until those working in the bioweapons lab edited elements of the virus that would make that possible. Though the Chinese want to place all blame on the virus originating from bats (in a seafood market no less), the science speaks for itself and it’s telling a different story.



The novel coronavirus COVID-19 so closely resembles two different bat SARS-like coronaviruses that it appears COVID-19 was created through “copy and pasting” the exact amino acid similarity and cannot be a natural mutation within bats or any other mammal.



The issue is in the S protein, otherwise known as the spike protein (seen in the image below as the blue rods that align the outside of the cell) which in natural occurrences of SARS-CoV-1 don’t have the ability to penetrate Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 Receptors or (ACE2 receptors) ripping the veil, and allowing the pathway of the virus to invade humans cells and destroy them.

"There are only a few places left in the world where hydroxychloroquine is still effective AGAINST MALARIA"
... but "regular quinine" still works most of the time in those places... if I read some articles correctly...

Still drinking my "Concentrated Indian Tonic Water"... as a preventive precaution...
Funny, it's supposed to "prevent leg cramps", but I got heatstroke in the garden last week (dehydrated - eighties weather), and a HORRIBLE night of leg cramps... anecdotally...
