COVID Hype and Dem Governor Tyranny Up – Mortality? Down

By Terry | Deception by Omission

Former long-term Goldman Sachs employee Democrat Governor of NJ, Murphy, orders mandatory face masks because case numbers are rising. Meanwhile, mortality rates continue to decline, as even the NY Times was forced to admit in an article written 5 days before Murphy’s mandatory outdoor mask order was issued.

Murphy claims it is not about politics, but health being one of the first states to require indoor masks. He doesn’t offer real science to back that up, just orders. Perhaps what he also said is the real clue as to why he is more akin to LA Mayor Garcetti than Florence Nightingale:

But, unfortunately, we have been seeing a backslide in compliance as the weather has gotten warmer, and not surprisingly as a result, our rate of transmission has similarly crept up.

Could compliance be the real concern here? Based on his interchange with Tucker Carlson during a Fox interview, one could quite easily make that case.

Murphy is the political genius who couldn’t justify his rationale for charging 15 citizens for peacefully assembling at a Synagogue funeral on Tucker Carlson’s national television show. Murphy claimed that the Bill of Rights is “above his pay grade.”

Meanwhile, he also failed to identify the “science” behind his orders to restrict religious gatherings but allow liquor stores to remain open.

Above his pay grade? What is this genius doing in government if he does not even know how the Federal Bill of Rights applies to the citizens of his state? My guess, he knows and is practicing willful ignorance to suit the Democrat’s power-based need to rule over the citizens of the state. See his response below:

Murphy completely avoids answering the direct question on both the science and the Bill of Rights. Why? Because he has no evidence nor authority under either. His justification is rising case numbers.

The real question is: Just how valid are these supposed case numbers? Let’s take a look at what the CDC says about the COVID case numbers and about the tests and see.

CDC Facts About What Counts As a COVID Case

The CDC breaks down COVID cases into two categories:

  1. Confirmed
  2. Probable

So, what constitutes a “probable” case, according the CDC?

probable case or death is defined by one of the following:

  1. Meeting clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19
  2. Meeting presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence
  3. Meeting vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID19

Criterion One

Under the first criterion, you don’t even have to have a confirmed COVID lab test to be counted as a COVID case in the numbers. All you have to do is have symptoms that fall into the COVID category (which could, in fact, be caused by a whole range of other causes) and be around someone else diagnosed with COVID (epidemiological linkage).

Uh, circular diagnosis isn’t it? What if the person had some COVID-like symptoms and was around someone else diagnosed with COVID, yet never had a confirmed test for COVID?

Sorry, that too would count as a COVID case. Anyone seeing how numbers in COVID cases could be massaged up here?

Criterion Two

It meets presumptive laboratory evidence which is:

  • Detection of specific antigen in a clinical specimen
  • Detection of specific antibody in serum, plasma, or whole blood indicative of a new or recent infection*

*Serologic methods for diagnosis are currently being defined.

What is an antigen? According to MedlinePlus from the U.S. National Library of Medicine- NIH, an antigen is:

Any substance that causes your immune system to produce antibodies against it. This means your immune system does not recognize the substance and is trying to fight it off.

An antigen may be a substance from the environment, such as chemicals, bacteria, viruses, or pollen. An antigen may also form inside the body.

MedlinePlus – NIH

So, according to the NIH an antigen could be pollen, bacteria, or viruses (note the plural meaning any viruses). A pretty general criterion isn’t it?

Also, note that the diagnostic methods of detecting this general antibody in the serum have not even been defined yet, according to the CDC.

This then begs the question– How can you detect a specific antigen in a clinical specimen if none has been defined yet? Doesn’t that make criterion two completely worthless?

Not to the CDC, media or politicians using the COVID numbers to justify their orders. Like Murphy’s response of silence to direct questions, logic and common sense does not apply when it comes to the COVID panic.

Criterion Three

Again, you don’t need to have a confirmed COVID test to be included in the numbers under this criterion. You just have to meet the vital records criteria.

This, of course, begs the question of what exactly are the vital records criteria? So, once again, let’s see what the CDC defines as a vital records criteria:

  • A death certificate that lists COVID-19 disease or SARS-CoV-2 as a cause of death or a significant condition contributing to death.

In other words, based on the squirrely criterion we have just gone over, a person can qualify as having COVID without even having confirmatory testing or solid evidence of having COVID because symptoms can be caused by a wide range of other disorders, including a common cold, and still be considered a COVID case.

As Italy and Sweden demonstrate only about 4% of the COVID mortalities had no serious preconditions:

The median age of the deceased in most countries (including Italy) is over 80 years (e.g. 86 years in Sweden) and only about 4% of the deceased had no serious preconditions. The age and risk profile of deaths thus essentially corresponds to normal mortality

Swiss Policy Research – Facts About Covid-19

All of which points to a fact not being acknowledged in the COVID death counts. A person can die with a COVID diagnosis without actually having been confirmed that it was caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Or put another way, you can die with a COVID diagnosis, not of the SARS-CoV-2 COVID virus.

COVID Tests- How Accurate Are They?

You may ask, “Yes, but what about the people that do have confirmed COVID tests? Aren’t they valid COVID deaths?”

Perhaps, then again, perhaps not.

According to the CDC 2019 real-time diagnostic panel report:

Positive results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease.

CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel

In other words, your condition could be caused by a bacterial infection or another virus, yet show positive results from the real time RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase -polymerase chain reaction) tests.

Or, you could have no condition (symptoms aka asymptomatic) and have a bacteria or a virus other than the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and still test positive to the RT-PCR test.

Hence, despite the implications of accuracy from Big Pharma champions like the Mayo Clinic, there is a big problem that has not been acknowledged:

In the absence of a “gold standard,” researchers are finding a high frequency of false negatives among SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests.

Multiple Studies Raise Questions About Reliability of Clinical Laboratory COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests

There is no time-honored “gold standard” test for the SARS-CoV-2 virus which is leading as noted in some studies to inaccuracy rates as high as 29 and 38%. On this fact alone, the RT-CTR tests could be off by one-third or more.

Additionally, as the CDC notes, a bacterial infection or other viruses could cause a positive test result which leads to a few questions:

  • What percentage of positive COVID test results are caused by a bacterial infection?
  • What percentage of positive COVID test results are caused by other viruses?

Is this perhaps why antibacterial drugs like azithromycin used in the hydroxychloroquine protocol are effective? They are treating a bacterial infection, not a viral infection.

Is this also why people diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 are asymptomatic (have no symptoms)? They actually don’t have the virus but rather bacteria or other viruses, which btw all of us carry or we would not be alive.

Despite these CDC admitted flaws:

Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.

CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel

It doesn’t matter if they result from false positives like bacteria or other viruses.

It doesn’t matter that there is no accepted gold standard test which generates false positives as high as more than one-third of the results.

What counts is that the flawed test came up positive. If it came up positive, you are counted in the case numbers.

Can you see how this would tend to inflate COVID case numbers, particularly in light of the increased number of tests being administered these days? Who does that benefit?

Well, for one, the hospitals. As noted by 35 year, board certified practitioner Dr. Scott Jensen, hospitals get to charge Medicare/Medicaid cases $13,000 vs. a standard $4,600. If they place a COVID patient on a ventilator, they can charge $39,000.

With hospitals hurting for income because they have been forbidden to provide elective or scheduled surgeries (the highest revenue generator for hospitals) do you think a COVID diagnosis offers them an opportunity to recover some of that lost income?

As Dr. Jensen notes, it obviously does.

Naturally, the medical authorities are investigating the doctor because he dared step outside the approved narrative.

The truth is there are a lot of vested interests that do not want the truth about COVID or the industry as a whole criticized in any way. There is a great deal of money at stake. $3.65 Trillion annually in 2018 alone according to Fortune. (Numerically that would be 365,000,000,000,000.)

Qui Bono?

The question to ask is who profits from all of this COVID panic? Based on the results one would think that Big Pharma has a stake in this game.

Perhaps not right away, but certainly on down the road. There is a huge vaccine bonanza at stake with global dosage administration in the balance.

Don’t expect all of the public to think that industry with more than $3.65 Trillion annual intakes in the U.S. alone doesn’t have economic considerations in mind? More people see through that hollow claim than admitted to by the medical-industrial complex, so to speak.

Also. the more people that sell themselves into the modern medical monopoly from this panic means that many more trusting patients in the future. Quite a lucrative future bonanza in fact.

Democrats at the local levels such as Democrat governors in NJ, California, Michigan and NY are the most aggressive and imperial in asserting their authority over the population.

Republican governors are the most liberal in allowing for personal freedom in their states. Now, the case numbers are suddenly rising in those liberal states which have allowed their citizens to return to a more normal life.

Based on the facts stated in this post from the CDC guidelines itself, I believe we can all see how this could happen.

All along, I have seen this pandemic panic as little more than an opportunistic power grab to take control of the population by governments globally. Study it without bias. Observe the responses of government and the medical powers to be. I believe you will discover the same.

Unless, of course, you have a vested interest not to. And, with an industry that generates over $3.65 Trillion annually and a government with a debt level of $26.5 Trillion and growing – power represents a lot of money.
