    Elizabeth Mach, 45, allegedly approached a 50-year-old man after he removed his face covering while leaving a Costco store in Mettawa in Lake County, on June 16, the Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday. Police said Mach slammed her shopping cart into the stranger and told him to put his mask back on because he hadn’t fully exited the store. It sounds like he’d had his receipt checked and was exiting the warehouse store when Mach rammed his cart. That was her first mistake. She then, according to the report, goes into 2020 freakout mode on him. “I am a schoolteacher and...

    This is really STUNNING information! The Texas Department of Health released numbers recently comparing the coronavirus to the last two seasonal flu viruses.The coronavirus was actually less lethal than the flu in the state! The flu had a mortality rate of 0.03% and 0.04%. The coronavirus has a mortality rate of 0.01% in Texas.This won’t make any headlines. Via Dr. Andrew Bostom.

  • 'Opioid overdoses are skyrocketing': as Covid-19 sweeps across US an old epidemic returns

    ...The American Medical Association said it was “greatly concerned” at reported increases in opioid overdoses in more than 30 states although it will be months before hard data is available. Public health officials from Kentucky to Florida, Texas and Colorado have recorded surges in opioid deaths as the economic and social anxieties created by the Covid-19 pandemic prove fertile ground for addiction. In addition, Brumage said significant numbers of people have fallen out of treatment programmes as support networks have been yanked away by social distancing orders. “I’m a firm adherent to the idea that the opposite of addiction is...
  • More Florida Covid Craziness – One Local News Station Finds Multiple Clinics Errantly Reporting 100% ‘Positive’ Test Results

    It is becoming apparent that injecting politics into coronavirus reporting is contagious. The state of Florida has become the ever-growing focus of activities surrounding the coronavirus and the way it is handled by the politicians. The reasons for this are numerous: Florida is a swing state in November, GOP leadership is at the helm, the press is desperate to cover for the incompetence seen by the Mayor and the Governor in New York, and any good news on the COVID front cannot be allowed to make President Trump look good in any fashion. As Governor Ron DeSantis has done a...
  • Three Reasons the China Coronavirus Incidence and Mortality Counts Reported by the CDC Are Likely Fraudulent

    The reporting on the number of deaths coming from the CDC are fraudulent. Here are three actions the CDC is taking that promote these fraudulent numbers. 1. WE REPORTED IN APRIL – States are forced to include probable cases in their COVID mortality reporting. The CDC is forcing states to recount their coronavirus deaths to include confirmed cases and probable cases. Several states are in the process of reassessing their numbers based on this questionable new rule. In April New York state added 3,700 deaths to their numbers to include presumed but not confirmed cases. The CDC is forcing...

    Good news. The Los Angeles Teachers Union has kind of, sort of agreed to re-open schools. All they require is a laundry list of unrelated far-left demands that would make Bernie Sanders blush. It’s for the children, after all. Daily Caller DailyCaller(tweet) LA Teachers Union Demands Defunding Of Police, Medicare-For-All And Ban On New Charter Schools As Conditions For Reopening Schools A major Los Angeles teachers union said in a research paper issued Thursday that the reopening of schools should be conditioned upon the passage of Medicare-for-All at the federal level, along with a slew of other left-wing policy staples...

    Retraction Watch ^ | July 10, 2020 | Ivan Oransky
    In early June, as controversy swirled over a high-profile study of hydroxychloroquine and COVID-19, Christian Funck-Brentano started receiving aggressive emails, texts and tweets. Funck-Brentano, professor of medicine and clinical pharmacology at Sorbonne Université and Pitié-Salpętričre University Hospital in Paris, and a colleague had published an editorial in The Lancet alongside the study — purportedly based on data from a company called Surgisphere — citing the results and sounding an alarm about the cardiac risks of hydroxychloroquine. Within days, that paper was retracted, along with a paper in The New England Journal of Medicine about different medications also allegedly based on...

    White House coronavirus task force member Admiral Brett Giroir said fellow task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci “doesn’t necessarily … have the whole national interest in mind” when dispensing advice on how to deal with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Giroir, the assistant secretary for health and White House coronavirus testing czar, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday to discuss the ongoing coronavirus response with anchor Chuck Todd...“I want to just put this to rest,” Giroir responded. “There is complete, open, honest discussion within the task force. The task force meets three or four times a week. The vice president...

    City Journal ^ | July 13, 2020 | Jonathan M. Ellen
    It’s reasonable to conclude that we may see continued outbreaks for more than one to two years, despite feverish efforts to develop a vaccine. As such, the U.S. needs to come to terms with a stubborn reality regarding Covid-19: namely, that the virus may persist into the foreseeable future. Given the consequences of many of the mitigation efforts on mental health, unemployment, education, and the economy, America needs to reckon honestly, and apolitically, with what science tells us about the virus—who is getting infected and what we can do to prevent infection, absent a vaccine. We shouldn’t use the hope...

    The humanitarian group Oxfam's warning that the economic shutdowns imposed to combat the coronavirus may lead to more than 120 million additional people starving to death this year was brushed off by viral expert Dr. Anthony Fauci as "a false narrative. Look, millions of people starving to death each year is normal. The coronavirus is novel. It is incumbent that this novel threat remain the primary focus of world heath efforts." "I am especially concerned about the rise in the number of confirmed cases that has followed the risky decision to allow nonessential businesses and activities to prematurely resume," the...
  • Florida Sets a New Single Day Record for Coronavirus Cases — And This Brings Plenty of Good News

    The media is salivating this morning over Covid cases in Florida, but it is not a symptom of the coronavirus; more like a side effect of their obsession with slandering the state, and its governor Ron DeSantis. Yesterday Florida set a new record when it reported the highest single day increase in coronavirus cases by any state since the outbreak. This jarring announcement requires a significant amount of analysis, but let us first get the hysteria out of the way. Florida hit an alarming one-day high on Sunday with 15,300 new coronavirus cases, shattering both the state and national record...

    American Greatness ^ | July 10, 2020 | Angelo Codevilla
    I knew for sure that Anthony Fauci is a fraud after listening to him for about 10 seconds—as anyone who listens carefully would have known as well. President Trump had been charging the Chinese government with obscurancy and deception in its handling of the novel coronavirus outbreak. Fauci had dealt intimately with the Chinese on that matter. His National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Centers for Disease Control had partially financed the notorious Wuhan laboratory where Chinese scientists were researching the virus. Fauci knew a lot. A reporter asked Fauci if he agreed with Trump that the...

    Twitter user Kyle Lamb put together a chart showing the number of deaths reported by the Coronavirus Tracking Project linked to the China coronavirus. The results of his work show that the CTP is adding deaths each week from prior periods that make the current period death totals appear greater than they really are and some of these additions are very suspect. The number of deaths reported publicly come from the Covid Tracking Project. Kyle Lamb created a chart using data from the CDC that shows the number of COVID-19 deaths reported by the CDC and the weeks the death...

Brazil is using this treatment widely and, as you will hear in the report, it appears to be highly effective. Please be sure to also watch Lessa explain the real reason (besides TDS) why there is so much hostility towards hydroxychloroquine as a treatment.

    Janitor's view ^ | July 11, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    Teen athletes have traditionally been classified as "boys" or "girls" so that girls can participate in sports without having to compete against boys who are usually stronger and faster than girls. This system worked as long as everyone agreed on which athletes were girls and which athletes were boys. Today some disagree about who qualifies as girls and who qualifies as boys. One thing hasn't changed. There are two different genetic types of athletes. One type has two "X" chromosomes. The other has an "XY" combination of chromosomes. Athletes who have an "XY" combination of chromosomes are usually stronger and...

    VIDEO The descredited and subsequently retracted hydroxychlorquine study had hardly appeared in Lance magazine before CNN pounced on it with great eagerness to try to prove President Donald Trump wrong. This is yet another of their horribly WRONG reports on this treatment which on July 3 was contradicted by a Henry Ford Health System study which showed that hydroxychloroquine significantly reduced mortality among COVID-19 patients. Once again, CNN WRONG and Trump RIGHT!
