Pandemic News the Left Cannot Deny ^ | October 22, 2020 | Jeff Davidson

Posted on 10/22/2020 7:30:17 AM PDT by Kaslin

On the path to voting Donald Trump out of office, the Left’s media machine would like to suppress revelations about the Biden Crime Family. As early as 2001, Senator Joe Biden set up his son, Hunter, with a lucrative ‘consulting’ agreement with a large bank. The agreement called for Hunter to receive $100,000 per year, concurrent with Joe, ‘the big guy,’ helping the credit card industry to attain passage of a bill to hamper consumers’ ability to file for bankruptcy. 

Reports also are emerging that Biden had been sugarcoating huge payments to family members long before that, added to the growing evidence of what transpired between the Bidens and Ukraine, China, Russian, and Kazakhstan. 

The Left Can’t Spin This

Huntergate, nevertheless, might not cause the most uneasiness for the Left. What will? Drum roll please.... The news that by comparison, the U.S. is doing better than Europe in handling the pandemic. President Trump has guided the U.S., even if in a zigzag way, towards a better outcome, as of late October, than most of Europe.

In Germany, Angela Merkel is alarmed that the country is heading for new daily highs in coronavirus infections. Other European countries are seeing record numbers of infections including Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Switzerland.

A report by the U.S. Health editor at the UK’s Daily Mail says, “Daily coronavirus infection rates are 48% higher in the UK and nearly four-times higher in the Netherlands compared to the U.S., where [in Netherlands] the latest 'wave' of the pandemic is growing more slowly.” 

Mounting Woe in Europe

Although the U.S. still incurs the most new cases daily, around 48,000, in Belgium, France, the UK, and Netherlands, a larger proportion of the populations are being infected on a daily basis. Now eight months into the pandemic, 620 out of one million people in Belgium, for example, are becoming infected compared to 166 people in the U.S., based on seven-day rolling averages, as calculated by Our World in Data.

In France, new cases are at 355 daily per million, and French police went so far as to search the homes owned by a former prime minister and other top health officials following complaints about shortages of masks and other vital equipment. The director of the Paris Regional public health agency reported that half of its intensive care beds are occupied by coronavirus patients, with their hospital beds filling rapidly as well.

Poland and Portugal are both experiencing an uptick in cases. Sweden, which was celebrated for its non-lockdown approach to the pandemic, is now considering implying tougher restrictions on the population.

Winning on the Home Front

The countries cited above have attempted lockdowns, compulsory use of masks, curfews, social distancing, 10-person limits at bars and restaurants, and so on: Nothing seems to help and no one has a particularly sound plan for diminishing the number of new cases. Joe Biden, however, could do better? Sure thing!

Spain and Italy have achieved some measure of success with Spain at 230 new cases daily out of every one million residents, and Italy is at 140 per day. New infections in the UK are at 250 out of every one million residents, and in the Netherlands, new cases are at 448 daily per million.

In other words, longitudinal results here and abroad strips away the Left’s contention that Trump somehow failed in addressing the pandemic. Given that U.S. infection and mortality rates are dropping, and compare favorably to European nations, where can the Left turn? 

Suppression is all They Have

As always, the mainstream media will suppress any news about how the U.S. compares in terms of new cases daily and anything else that helps President Trump's cause. With the Biden Crime Family revelations, the lack of Joe and Kamala’s effectiveness, or even appearance, on the campaign trail, and a variety of other factors that favor President Trump, the Left is panicking.

Certainly, rising infection rates abroad are not a cause for cheer, but the hardships faced in Europe put into perspective the challenges that world leaders are experiencing in grappling with this menacing virus. And, by comparison, it shows that President Trump has done rather well. 

The leftist media machine would not like to have such news front and center in tonight’s debate, or in newspaper headlines. Facts have a way of emerging, however, and the fact is the U.S. is doing better than many, many nations around the world.

The experts said we’d have 2 million dead.

Trump has us down to around a 10th of that.

The media calls it a failure.

And it would have been much lower if the states of New York, New Jersey, Michigan and California didn’t send the elderly sick from COVID-19 into nursing homes.

the challenges that world leaders are experiencing in grappling with this menacing virus.

Sad that even relatively conservative outlets give this sham credence with statements like this. COVID is nothing more than the flu, in its contagiousness and it’s lethality. That so many people are allowing it to be used to control them, to force them to live miserable lives of fear and isolation, to destroy lives and livelihoods, is really pathetic.

Are you sure that happened in California? It wouldn’t surprise me but I don’t recall news stories about that.

It did happen in California but the death rate was WAY lower because most Californians get enough "natural" Vitamin D from Sun exposure even in winter (about 45% of the state is south of the 37° North latitude).

The sickness and death rates in the US would be much lower if everyone followed Dr. Fauci's example of taking 6,000 IU of Vitamin D per day. Dr. Fauci is in a position to know that Vitamin D is effective against respiratory infections in general, and the Chinese Virus in particular. Of course, the 6,000 IU would have to be scaled up for larger people (probably 10,000 for PDJT).

Some questions I would like to see posed at the "debate":

What is Dr. Fauci's blood level of Vitamin D?

What is Preident Trump's blood level of Vitamin D?

Is the CDC going to try to duplicate the study that showed the following for patients treated with HCQ vs HCQ+vitamin D:
Sent to ICU 50% 2%
Died 4% 0%

This was a small study, and it should have been replicated by now, but there is no money in Vitamin D. The cost of the calcifediol is about $1,000 to $2,000 per study subject at retail prices. Ordinary vitamin D would only cost about $10, but would not act quickly enough for Covid-19 patients.
