  • Horowitz: Justice for George Floyd and for all of the 7,000+ black homicide victims every year

    conservativereview.com ^ | 5/28/20 | Daniel Horowitz
    When thousands of rioters burn down private businesses and even violently attack a woman in a wheelchair in response to an abhorrent act committed by one police officer, it is clear that the George Floyd riots are not about justice, as shown by the viral footage of the Minneapolis riots and the attacks on L.A. police officers yesterday. But what exposes this so-called movement as nothing but a dangerous anarchist mob, more than when and how they act, is when they fail to protest and actually remain silent when even more black lives are at stake.

Hospitals and intensive care units in California and other states have remained largely empty so far. Based on the respective positive test rates, Dr. Erickson calculates that the lethality rate of Covid19 is currently 0.03% in California, 0.05% in Spain, 0.09% in Sweden and 0.1% in New York State, while the lethality rate of the flu in the USA is around 0.13%.

According to Professor Ioannidis, the lethality of Covid19 is „in the range of seasonal flu“. For people under 65 years of age, the mortality risk even in the global „hotspots“ is comparable to the daily car ride to work, while for healthy people under 65 years of age, the mortality risk is „completely negligible“. Only in New York City was the mortality...

For those interested, please read previous dated editions with the same title April 16, 2020 The London Times reports that 50% of current British excess mortality might not be caused by the coronavirus, but by the effects of the lockdown, general panic and partial social breakdown. This amounts to 3000 deaths per week. In fact, this figure could be even higher, as the British corona definition also includes deaths with (rather than from) coronaviruses as well as „suspected cases“. In addition, around 50% of „corona deaths“...

    April 15, 2020 Medical updates In the British Telegraph, Professor Alexander Kekulé, one of Germany’s leading microbiologists and epidemiologists, calls for an end to the lockdown as it causes more damage than the virus itself. In people under 50 years of age, severe disease or death are „very, very unlikely“. The general population should develop rapid immunity, while risk groups should be protected. One cannot wait for a vaccine, which will take at least six to twelve months, but must find a way to live with the virus, Professor Kekulé said.The German Network for Evidence-Based Medicine reports that the lethality...

    The first case of the Wuhan Virus in the US is thought to be on January 19, 2020 when a 35-year-old man showed up at an urgent care clinic in Snohomish County, Washington. In New York, it was a woman in the last week of February. Now, many are saying that the Wuhan Virus had been around earlier and in greater numbers. During the second week in March, colleges began closing and sending students home. I present this timeline to show how they may have already been widely infected, including the spring breakers. Mid December 2019 - Winter semester ends...

    April 6 & 7, 2020 The latest figures from a special report by the German Robert Koch Institute show that the so-called positive rate (i.e. the number of test positives per number of tests) is increasing much more slowly than the exponential curves shown by the media and was only around 10% at the end of March, a value that is rather typical for corona viruses. According to the magazine Multipolar, there can therefore be „no question of a dangerously rapid spread of the virus“.Professor Klaus Püschel, head of forensic medicine in Hamburg, explains about Covid19: „This virus influences our...

    April 5, 2020 In a 40-minute interview, the internationally renowned epidemiology professor Knut Wittkowski from New York explains that the measures taken on Covid19 are all counterproductive. Instead of „social distancing“, school closures, „lock down“, mouth masks, mass tests and vaccinations, life must continue as undisturbed as possible and immunity must be built up in the population as quickly as possible. According to all findings to date, Covid-19 is no more dangerous than previous influenza epidemics. Isolation now would only cause a „second wave“ later.The British Medical Journal (BMJ) reports that, according to the latest data from China, 78% of...

Yes, say Rudi Anschober and Bernhard Benka, members of the Corona Task Force in the Ministry of Health. „There is a clear rule at present: Died with the corona virus or died from the corona virus both count for...

    April 2, 2020 (I) USA Biophysicist Felix Scholkmann has visualized the fact that in the US (as in the rest of the world), it is not the number of „infected“ people that is increasing exponentially, but the number of tests. The number of „infected“ people in relation to the number of tests remains basically constant (oscillating between 10 and 20%), which speaks against a current viral epidemic.Number of positive and negative tests (left) and percantage of positive tests (right) (Scholkmann, US data) Germany According to the latest influenza report of the German Robert Koch Institute, the number of acute respiratory...

(Photo by Eric Baradat/AFP via Getty Images) (CNSNews.com) Of the 16 countries reporting the highest number of confirmed cases of the China-originated coronavirus COVID-19, the United States has the smallest number in proportion to its population. President Trump on Wednesday attributed the relative success thus far in containing the outbreak at home to a decision early on to impose travel restrictions from China, a move which he said had prompted accusations of racism from his critics. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports a cumulative total...

    This one will get you thinking! It has teeth. Just to be clear.....this is not opinion..they are factual. Life is not a fairy tale. If you lose your shoe at midnight, youre probably drunk. If women are upset at Trumps naughtiness, who bought 80 million copies of "Fifty Shades of Gray"? Bill Clinton paid $850,000 to Paula Jones to get her to go away. I dont remember the FBI raiding his lawyers office. Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems womens rights only matter if those women are liberal. They sent more troops and armament to arrest Roger...

    Last month, the satire site The Babylon Bee lawyered up after liberal fact-checker Snopes tried to deplatform it by calling it "fake news" and suggesting the Babylon Bee did not rise to the level of satire. The Babylon Bee's lawyer sent a demand letter, and Snopes altered the offending article. But last week, Snopes unloaded two more attacks on the Bee, and the Bee vowed to keep fighting back."Snopes is at it again. We had hoped that a demand letter from our attorneys would prompt changes. And it seemed to. Snopes did go back and edit theirdefamatory fact-check, revising...

    Mass shootings/shooters/truth. Where do I go to actually find out truth in these various shootings?I'm certain some things can be linked through various connections, i.e. young people (males specifically) who've been on mind altering drugs, spending time on internet playing violent video games, seeing themselves without friends, close knit families, bonds with good teachers/mentors, etc.Not all of these shootings have the shooters showing these traits, others, like the Las Vegas shooter, we've been locked out completely and when there are numerous witnesses who claim that there are more than one shooter but get shut down completely, no discussion about external...
