  1. Wake up people. Belinda Lee 5d My client just told me her family went to get tested for Covid stood in line for 4&1/2 hours so they gave up and left only to get test results in the mail that said they tested positive when they didnt even get tested. Hope a few of you get to see this before its taken down.
  2. The way the govt has set up the game, hospitals will lose millions no matter how they try to avoid it. Who mandated they shut down? Who is costing them those millions? The only way they can even try to survive is by inflating the numbers to get the money the govt will give them. Seems to me the govt has set up a game where you comply with their scam in order to survive, or you go broke and close your doors. That's a powerful amount of control there and it appears it's being used to promote this horror story. There's tons of evidence proving the numbers are being inflated. Anyone that denies it is just living in denial. This virus issue is being blown way out of proportion as far as it's risks to the general population. There are many other risk factors in America right now taking ten times as many lives every year that have never been a concern for the govt and never caused the economy to shut down or deprive people of basic rights. Why does COVID 19 rate such oppression? It's massive manipulation being used to transform this country and your rights and freedoms. People better wake up and stop defending their own demise, which is not going to come from this virus. I wonder how many of you virus fearing people have any clue what the ramifications of a total economic collapse look like. You better start investigating that scenario so you understand exactly what your asking for when you keep supporting the destruction of the US and world economy thinking you are saving the world. In the overall scheme of the most elite 1% in the world, no lives matter.
  3. That is most certainly a factor, but it is not being presented as one by the media or those who promoted those protests. "It’s impossible to ignore that this surge in new COVID-19 cases began in the middle of June, a rather eventful month. At least one of the protest marches in California following the killing of George Floyd was attended by an estimated 500-1,000 people. However, the protests and riots occurred in many California cities, and contrary to the stated aims of public health officials during an active pandemic, many lawmakers encouraged participation. In fact, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti attended one of the protests himself and neglected to wear a mask. Garcetti would later concede that the protests were very likely linked to a large number of new cases. From poor compliance to massive protests, many of the factors leading up to the surge in new cases were likely independent of reopening efforts, or of any policy aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19. When the fervor following Floyd’s death reached a fever pitch, it was unlikely that the massive crowds would cooperate with social distancing and mitigation measures. That said, if policymakers prioritized public health and suppressing the pandemic, they should not have encouraged protesting." The Daily Signal
  4. Good analysis from The Daily Signal. California has been cautious in reopening and has maintained many of its mitigation measures during this time. In the time that Texas was well into its third phase of reopening, California had only begun moving into its second, yet is seeing a similar surge in cases. The facts suggest that the recent surge is the result of an uncooperative public more than a failure of reopening. California has been slow and deliberate in loosening restrictions on a county-by-county basis. For instance, some dine-in restaurants have been opened, provided establishments can meet certain guidelines, but hair and nail salons, public events, and spectator sports remain closed. California has imposed a statewide mask requirement since June 18. Furthermore, Gov. Gavin Newsom is adamant on waiting for a vaccine before normal life can resume. With such a focus on caution, why has California seen such a rise in cases? Newsom recently blamed it on the “young invincibles,” young adults who are not complying well with disease precautions. To that end, Newsom has ordered the closing of bars and indoor areas of restaurants in many counties, including in Los Angeles, Orange, and Sacramento counties. Bars and pubs offer an environment that is particularly conducive to transmitting respiratory diseases as patrons cluster together at the bar shouting their drink orders over the din of the crowd and, typically, loud music. Anecdotally, many bars and restaurants in California have not been complying with occupancy guidelines, so it would be unsurprising if many of the new cases can be linked back to such establishments. Also anecdotally, many Americans simply do not know how to wear a mask properly—for instance, by leaving their noses exposed or pulling their masks down to talk with others, thereby negating any benefit a mask might have. It’s also impossible to ignore that this surge in new COVID-19 cases began in the middle of June, a rather eventful month. At least one of the protest marches following the killing of George Floyd was attended by an estimated 500-1,000 people. However, the protests and riots occurred in many California cities, and contrary to the stated aims of public health officials during an active pandemic, many lawmakers encouraged participation. In fact, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti attended one of the protests himself and neglected to wear a mask. Garcetti would later concede that the protests were very likely linked to a large number of new cases. From poor compliance to massive protests, many of the factors leading up to the surge in new cases were likely independent of reopening efforts, or of any policy aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19. When the fervor following Floyd’s death reached a fever pitch, it was unlikely that the massive crowds would cooperate with social distancing and mitigation measures. That said, if policymakers prioritized public health and suppressing the pandemic, they should not have encouraged protesting. The good news is that bar patrons and protesters are typically much younger than the population at high risk for mortality or severe disease due to COVID-19. Between June 18 and July 7, California added more than 110,000 new cases, which represented a 72% increase. The majority of cases are among people between 18 and 49 years of age, while the vast majority of mortality was among those 65 and older. The mortality rate currently remains low, and even though we expect mortality to lag cases, enough time has passed that we have not seen the expected rise in mortality. There’s still time for that to change, but hopefully, a corresponding surge in deaths does not materialize. California, like other states, is reacting to changing facts on the ground. The events of the past month have been extraordinary, but moving forward, all of us must continue to take the pandemic seriously while balancing the need to resume normal American life to the extent possible. The increase in new cases is concerning—no matter the state—but we must temper our evaluation of the situation by relative risks to the younger population, who are less vulnerable to the severe disease manifestations. There are reasons for optimism that, despite the large number of cases, we likely will not see a return to the dire situation that characterized the early stages of the pandemic.
  5. Some People Fry Everything.
  6. China expert Gordon Chang told FNC's Tucker Carlson on Thursday that he believes the coronavirus was accidentally released from a Wuhan research lab and says an exiled virologist from Hong Kong's claims of a coverup are "credible." https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/07/12/gordon_chang_exiled_scientists_claim_that_china_accidentally_released_covid-19_is_credible.html?fbclid=IwAR2dUssDXyMiElpmTirDms9c-cFL1JvDpuvQE1_IM2LMbahCZasW--glf8M
  7. This is mean and verges on child abuse.
  8. I like your confidence, but I think you will be embarrassed.
  9. Then there's this....... Tens of thousands of coronavirus tests have been double-counted, officials admit https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/tens-thousands-coronavirus-tests-have-double-counted-officials/?fbclid=IwAR1v7y4RLxmC3-tY-A9lRWKueuWCYltHggpO1DOQthRu_mW_jm9RYhUa-jk
