The CDC is not a ‘public health’ agency, it’s a vehicle for corporate lobbying

Go to www.cdcfoundation.org/FY2019/organizations and go through all the funding throughout the fiscal years. It’s all Fortune 500 banks and corporations, Coca Cola, Amazon, GlaxoSmith Kline, etc! Do they really care about ‘public health’, or are they backing a medical tyranny?

2018 2017 2016 2015

From the CDC’s foundation’s page:

“The CDC Foundation is an independent nonprofit and the sole entity created by Congress to mobilize philanthropic and private-sector resources to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s critical health protection work.”

This coronavirus is the strangest virus I've ever heard of. It's very dangerous the way it spreads. It is so mysterious the way it lurks in schools, but then dies at Home Depot. It can wreak havoc in churches, but not in abortion clinics; praying people are exceptionally vulnerable! Although it’s Mind-boggling how it vanishes when people stand close together holding signs, destroying businesses, homes, property, monuments, etc. Yet, standing to watch a marathon or a concert triggers its wrath. It is sneaky. It can spread when buying clothes at Kohl's but not at Target. It is non-alcoholic. It can't spread when you are buying beer. It lives for two days on Amazon boxes, you must wait 48 hours to touch them but It can't survive on Dunkin Donuts coffee cups, so enjoying a hot cup of joe is safe. It is the most curious thing, how it lives on basketballs, baseball bats and ballet bars, but dies on WWE ropes and Walmart shopping carts. It is spread by hair stylists, dog groomers, and dentists, but not by bank tellers, cashiers, and fast food workers. It's so smart. It won’t bother the first 10 people but it knows when the 11th person shows up so be careful if that’s you. It even knows what you want vs what you need. If you want a massage or your nails done it is very actively on the prowl and not even a mask can stop it but If you need a plumber, it is weak, and a mask will keep it away. It also seems to be most dangerous after 5:30pm so businesses must start to close before the virus comes out and wreaks havoc upon the populations. Whoever heard of such a smart sneaky virus?!?

Down the rabbit hole
I found it also changes the job responsibilities of those furloughed. When you get called back to work, you find out that many more tasks are added to your job description. If you can't do your (old/new) job, you get laid off and a new (cheaper) person is hired to do your (new/old) job.

(true story)

Jim Jordan fights back after Jerry Nadler tries to silence a GOP member for refusing to wear a mask

Some House Republicans are pushing back against a new requirement for donning facial coverings

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday attempted to enforce a new rule pushed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) requiring committee chairs to "exclude members who fail to comply" with wearing a mask during proceedings. But when Nadler tried to skip over a mask-free Republican's speaking time during a meeting, Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) pushed back. The Hill reported that the Capitol physician — at the request of Pelosi — issued guidance Tuesday night requiring lawmakers to wear facial coverings for all meetings "in a limited space, such as a committee hearing room, for greater than 15 minutes." A senior Democratic aide told the outlet that the speaker had asked committee chairs to "enforce rules of decorum and exclude members who fail to comply." While overseeing a Judiciary Committee meeting the next day, Nadler reminded his colleagues of the new rule — saying he had been "lenient" for most of the day — but warned that moving forward, "anyone who is not wearing a mask will not be recognized to speak. Period."

Immediately thereafter, Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.), who was not wearing a mask, sought to speak to argue his case for not covering his face. Nadler ignored him and attempted to skip over the congressman to allow a Democrat to take the allotted time. "McClintock has tried repeatedly to make his point," Jordan interjected. After Nadler made another effort to move on to the Democrat, Jordan said, "No, no, it's our side. You just had a Democrat speak, it's our turn." After a back-and-forth, Nadler eventually relented, allowing McClintock to express his opposition to the mask rule and its enforcement. The California Republican argued, "I consider masks much more effective at spreading panic and much less effective at stopping a virus."

Corporations, Airlines, State Governments House of Reps (D's) all imposing rules, not imposed by the federal government, Muzzles are a choice not a mandate..Subversion of individuals Civil Rights, needs to be called out, American's need to Stand Up Unified in One Voice, Remove the Masks (Muzzles). We need a National Muzzles OFF show of Unity. There are moar of us than of them. In addition it wouldn't be a bad idea to voice the refusal of wearing these muzzles through the use of memes directly to all corporations social media accounts who are participating in this sham.

I had the fleeting thought that this whole event is a "boy who cried wolf" routine by design, getting us to drop our guard when "the real virus" hits.

At an event today. No one buying this BS! I know around 100 people out of 500 people for years. Maybe 50 wearing masks & only 25 wearing them correctly. Most around their neck or not wearing them at all. It was over 90 deg. As the day wore on fewer and fewer masks.

Friends from Michigan I said does your governor know you escaped? Lets just say this board has been very very nice to her. Then things that were said I can't repeat........ and that's the good part. Sems lots of police are quitting and retiring in mass.

Friends from Indiana....... planned hoax. I said we need blindfolds so we can't see the shit they are trying to pull. Laughed & just said this is crazy.

Friend from NY. He spoke about locking down things so they can't be looted. Knows no one with the kung flu.

Friends from Ohio...... fed up, not working but doing well because of the extra $600 + unemployment.

I made a point of asking everyone if they know anyone that had it or died. No one does..... no one!

I don't know what's coming, other than more fascism and its allowed economic predation, but it's pretty obvious that within this exercise, it is not the virus that is causing the problems we're having today. Just as the virus has been the excuse for environmental toxins since 1918. The virus is the excuse, that's all.

Another thing mentioned by many to my above post. One guy said he knows of Dr.s quitting because they would not fill out chi na kung flu, beer vires, covid as the cause of death. Then went on to mention the financial ties to that.

Trump baited the MSM last night with the quote "I wanted to stop all the testing". They took the bait.

How many false positives from all the testing?

Oh look....


https://outline.com/WEjDXz

CDC coronavirus test kits were likely contaminated, federal review confirms

The test kits for detecting the nation’s earliest cases of the novel coronavirus failed because of “likely” contamination at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose scientists did not thoroughly check the kits despite “anomalies” during manufacturing, according to a new federal review.

The review, conducted by two Department of Health and Human Services lawyers, also said there was “time pressure’’ at the CDC to launch testing, and “lab practices that may have been insufficient to prevent the risk of contamination.’’ The lawyers, from the department’s general counsel’s office, were not named.

Neither the review, released late Friday, nor an accompanying statement from President Trump’s chief spokesman at HHS assigned blame to any CDC scientist or official by name.

The review is the first confirmation by the Trump administration that the original test kits were likely contaminated, and that the problem appeared to have occurred in late January within the CDC’s headquarters in Atlanta. In general, HHS has defended the administration’s efforts to counter the pandemic.

The three-page review also acknowledged that, after weeks of delay, the likely contamination ultimately prompted the CDC to jettison a problematic component of the test kit. The component was intended to detect coronavirus strains other than the one that causes covid-19, the disease that has killed more than 117,000 Americans.

The Washington Post reported on April 18 that the test kits had generated false-positive results — caused by the CDC’s contamination — at 24 of the first 26 public health labs that tried them out before analyzing samples from actual patients. The Post also reported that an examination by the Food and Drug Administration had concluded that the tests failed because of substandard manufacturing practices and that the CDC violated its own laboratory protocol in making the kits.

The false positives arose during testing of “negative control’’ samples that contained highly purified water and no genetic material. That aspect of testing was essential to confirm that results would be reliable and not skewed by contamination.

A spokesman for the CDC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the HHS review. The review was first reported Friday by Sinclair Broadcast Group


>The review was first reported Friday by Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Internal HHS investigation finds CDC's early test kits were 'contaminated'

A three-page summary of findings issued on official letterhead on June 19 by the office of HHS General Counsel Robert P. Charrow, who opened the investigation on orders from HHS Secretary Alex Azar on March 1, found that an “initial batch” of test kits produced by CDC relied on a “reagent” that was likely contaminated.

Reagents are substances introduced into chemical tests to produce reactions that scientists can study to learn about other substances.

The report said the faulty kits represented the second of two sets of test kits that were developed by the CDC starting in late January. The first set shipped off in limited numbers to public health authorities and was apparently used without incident.

However, the review acknowledged that it was the second, defective batch for which CDC leadership harbored more ambitious plans. The faulty kits, the report stated, were “developed to be manufactured by CDC as a first wave of testing to be shipped to public health laboratories across the country until commercial laboratories and diagnostic companies were able to come online” with mass-produced kits of their own.

“One of the three reagents in this initial batch of manufactured test kits was likely contaminated,” the general counsel’s office concluded. “These tests are so sensitive that this contamination could have been caused by a single person walking through an area with positive control material and then later entering an area where tests reagents were being manipulated.”

Models are dependent on three things:

- Accurate algorithm
- Good data
- Objective modeller(s)

All of the COVID modelling has none of those things.

This isn't beer virus per se, but is relevant considering the context:

Bank stress tests set to shine light on pandemic's fallout

One of the great unknowns about the coronavirus pandemic is the extent of the damage it will do to banking systems. This week could provide some insights into its impact on the world’s largest and most important system.
On Thursday (US time) the US Federal Reserve Board will release the results of its annual stress testing of US banks, which should provide some early indications of how the banks are coping with the first phase of the coronavirus.

The US bank stress test will give the world a snapshot of how the banking system is coping with the pandemic. Credit:AP
Those insights might have some broad relevance to other systems, including our own, given that at this point we don’t really know how the banks are coping with the economic fallout from the pandemic, and the emergency relief measures they have put in place to help customers.
The tests might also help explain why the Fed appears to be doing things that are, at face value, unnecessary at this point.

Last week the Fed, which had been buying securities in exchange-traded funds that invest in corporate bonds, announced the start of a new program of direct secondary-market purchases of bonds.
That raised eyebrows given that, after freezing at the onset of the virus, corporate debt markets in the US had been functioning well. Interest rates and spreads are low and credit freely available even for issuers of high-yield or "junk" bonds.

Why would the Fed intervene in a market that doesn’t appear to need intervention? Perhaps it is because another channel of corporate funding – the banks – isn’t holding up quite as well and it wants to bolster the markets as an alternate source of credit.
US banks, like our Australian banks, are confronted with a massive challenge as a result of the lockdowns and reduced economic activity flowing from the pandemic. Large swathes of their consumer and business customer bases have lost most of their cashflows, some inevitably permanently.

Businesses, large and small, and households are being given various forms of forbearance – interest and repayment deferrals and, to some degree, increased credit – as the banks try to preserve as much of their customer bases and of the economic activity that will generate their future profit as possible.
At some point – post-September here at the latest – they will have to move to a form of triage to excise those borrowers without any prospect of survival from their balance sheets to protect their own profitability and capital bases.
At the moment banks are understandably introspective, focusing on their existing customers. Here the Reserve Bank created a $135 billion term funding facility – three-year money at a 0.25 per cent interest rate – to encourage and effectively subsidise bank lending.

"If the US banks can cope with the most adverse of the economic outcomes, then our banks ought to be in a stronger position to weather the storm."​

Only $6 billion of that facility has been accessed so far, suggesting either that the banks have more than enough deposit funding and liquidity for their needs or that the demand for new credit, or their willingness to lend, has dried up. New lending requires capital support at a time when the banks know their capital bases will be eroded by large-scale coronavirus-related losses.

The US stress tests are designed to assess the capital adequacy of US banks using various scenarios based on differing levels of recession.
Before the coronavirus the most adverse scenario was for unemployment peaking at 10 per cent in the third quarter of 2021 and GDP falling 8.5 per cent over that same period. Earlier this month the Fed projected US unemployment to spike to 9.2 per cent and GDP to fall 6.5 per cent – this year -- with only a weak recovery over the next several years.
In response to the coronavirus outbreak it has added three new scenarios to its tests: a "V-shaped" rapid recovery; a "U-shaped" gradual improvement and a "W-shaped" path in which there is a second wave of the pandemic.

The Fed can force banks to withhold dividends and/or raise new capital if banks fail their tests. Even though the US banks hold a lot more capital and liquidity than they did before the global financial crisis, the tests are likely to show that as a group the banks are being stressed within a system that had high corporate leverage going into the new crisis.

The Fed’s response to the pandemic might not be solely about trying to prop up the banking system and a corporate bond market that is far more central to corporate funding than it is in most other markets.
In its semi-annual report to the US congress in May the central bank warned that losses from the coronavirus could strain the finances of the banks, given the historically high levels of business borrowing. It also highlighted the leverage levels of hedge funds and noted that they had been severely affected by the volatility and asset price declines at the onset of the pandemic.
Since the financial crisis there has been a marked transfer of financing activity from US banks to "shadow banks," like hedge funds. In recent years the fastest-growing segment of US corporate borrowers has been at the most highly-leveraged and riskiest end of the market, amid weakening protections for non-bank lenders.
Concern about the impact of falling asset prices – equities in particular – on the non-banks and on the access highly-leveraged companies would have to credit may explain why the Fed’s actions since the pandemic developed appear designed to prop up equity and high-yield debt markets.
The US banking system is likely to be scarred by the pandemic but within the shadow banking system and the junk bond market and leveraged lending more broadly could lie the seeds for another financial crisis.

The Fed normally issues bank-specific data in the results of its stress tests but will only provide aggregated data on how the banks perform under the various coronavirus-driven scenarios. That should, however, provide some understanding of the condition of the sector and of its ability to absorb the hits to the US economy under the different scenarios.

Our major banks went into the pandemic with more excess capital and liquidity than most other system and some of the banks have subsequently raised capital and withheld or reduced their dividends to preserve capital.
Nevertheless, the results of the US tests should provide some general sense of how banking systems are being, or could be, impacted by the pandemic. If the US banks can cope with the most adverse of the economic outcomes, then our banks ought to be in a stronger position to weather the storm.

Done. I tried 123, 124, 125, 126 and 793. Each time I got a different top link saying that's how many new covid cases in a particular locale.
As in, the location given was the only thing changed. They also weren't the same websites.

There's some monkey business going on here in Victoria. The rest of the country has effectively shut down beer virus and Victoria has somehow had a week of daily new cases in the mid teens (hardly worth mentioning ordinarily). It runs contrary to everything that has happened here in the past two months as the state had the strictest lockdown in the nation and more people stayed at home than anywhere else in the country.

I'm not sure, I drove through one of the areas they've designated a hot spot and the cops had cordoned off a couple of blocks but no medical people anywhere to be seen. I smell a witch hunt.

Follow the wives…
World Health Organisation fails to mention its 'goodwill ambassador' Peng Liyuan is the wife of China's President… saying only on its website that she's a singing star, amid concerns over WHO's handling of the coronavirus pandemic


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8351105/WHO-hails-goodwill-ambassador-Peng-Liyuan-fails-mention-shes-wife-Chinas-President.html

Peng Liyuan is listed on the World Health Organisation’s website alongside former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker as one of nine ‘goodwill ambassadors’.

When she was appointed, the then-head of the WHO hailed the Chinese folk singer’s ‘world famous voice and her compassionate heart’, saying she was ‘a big bright star with a huge and respectful audience of admirers’.

There was, however, no mention of the other reason why Peng is so well known – she is the wife of Xi Jinping, President of China and leader of its Communist Party.

Initial COVID-19 Infection Rate Possibly 80 Times Faster Than Originally Reported: New Study
https://www.zerohedge.com/economics...80-times-faster-originally-reported-new-study

Tue, 06/23/2020


excerpt:
  • A new study out of Penn State indicates that Covid-19 may have spread much faster in the U.S. than first originally thought - and therefore is likely less deadly than originally thought.
  • The study estimates there may have been as many as 8.7 million cases during the last three weeks of March, versus roughly the 100,000 that were reported.

Another Study Finds School Children Typically Don't Spread COVID-19 To Parents




The latest study of how COVID-19 manifests in schoolchildren suggests that children don't play a major role in spreading the virus, according to a Bloomberg report.



Ever since a mysterious inflammatory syndrome first emerged in children infected by SARS-CoV-2, researchers around the world, but especially in the US and Europe (where the syndrome was most widely found), have been working to determine the nature of the connection between this syndrome and the virus.



Of course, there's an important economic factor at play here as well: Before adults can be expected to return to work en masse, provisions must be made for schoolchildren, since childcare is prohibitively expensive for most families. Many colleges across the US have decided to resume classroom-based learning in the fall, even if students will abide by new COVID-19-sensitive social distancing guidelines. And while most expect elementary, middle and high school students to return to the classroom, most states have yet to make a formal decision.



Scientists at Institut Pasteur, a massive French research institute named after the scientist who invented the pasteurization process for milk, studied 1,340 people in Crepy-en-Valois, a town northeast of Paris that suffered an outbreak in February and March. The study included 510 students from six primary schools.



Among these students, researchers found three students who had contracted the virus. But in each example, it appears the kids didn't pass the virus on to their parents, or teachers.



Scientists at Institut Pasteur studied 1,340 people in Crepy-en-Valois, a town northeast of Paris that suffered an outbreak in February and March, including 510 students from six primary schools. They found three probable cases among kids that didn’t lead to more infections among other pupils or teachers.



The study confirms that children appear to show fewer telltale symptoms than adults and be less contagious, providing a justification for school reopenings in countries from Denmark to Switzerland. The researchers found that 61% of the parents of infected kids had the coronavirus, compared with about 7% of parents of healthy ones, suggesting it was the parents who had infected their offspring rather than the other way around.



This small study is one of several suggesting that young children do not often spread the coronavirus. Though there has been at least one study showing the opposite.

Nursing Homes Shocked at 'Insanely Wrong' CMS Data on COVID-19



One facility supposedly had eight coronavirus deaths for each bed



When the administrator of the Saugus Rehab and Nursing Center in Saugus, Massachusetts, heard that a new Medicare website reported her facility had 794 confirmed cases of COVID-19 the second highest in the country and 281 cases among staff, she gasped.



"Oh my God. Where are they getting those numbers from?" said Josephine Ajayi. "That doesn't make any sense."



Those weren't the numbers that her facility reported to the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network, under new rules from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), she said.



Ajayi said her 80-bed facility actually reported 45 residents have tested positive and five residents died, although the CMS website showed no Saugus deaths. About 19 staff members tested positive for the virus, and most have returned to work, she said.



Officials at skilled nursing facilities around the country said Monday they were shocked to see their data reported inaccurately wildly so in some cases, as at the Saugus home on the new CMS public website launched Thursday. The numbers are scaring families, harming their reputations, and in some cases are physically impossible, given the number of beds or staff in their facilities, they said.
