    By -6433 That the people who write Salon, or Vox, might not be all and entirely up to date with reality isn’t that much of a surprise. After all, how much reality to you get to encounter living the nice Brooklyn Life? But we would rather hope that those who write the New York Times have a slightly closer relationship with the truth than the arts graduates who can’t do art. Bryce Covert shows us that there are still things the NYT needs to know though: I agree with her on one point: It is the American way to champion...

    This year is on track to be the deadliest in U.S. history with a total of more than 3 million deaths expected by the end of December, due in large part to the coronavirus pandemic, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Associated Press reported Tuesday that preliminary numbers suggest the U.S. will have at least 3.2 million deaths by the end of 2020, about 400,000 more than in 2019...
  • The Science and Politics of COVID-19: How Statistical data can be manipulated to conform to a variety of desired outcomes

    American Thinker ^ | 12/08/2020 | Philip Mella
    One of the most important lessons of the past nine months is that epidemiological models are predicated on assumptions and that statistical data can be manipulated to conform to a variety of desired outcomes. They are therefore an alluring target for political exploitation. It was therefore noteworthy when a November 22 study published by Johns Hopkins University was subsequently deleted by the university because an official stated that it "was being used to support false and dangerous inaccuracies about the impact of the pandemic." The study, titled "A closer look at U.S. deaths due to COVID-19," was conducted by Dr....

    MenRec ^ | 12/2/20 | Staff
    CNN was on the receiving end of a fair share of mockery following an “exclusive” report in which documents were discovered showing China downplayed their coronavirus numbers and lied about the origins of the pandemic. The ‘breakthrough’ reporting involved information President Trump has been explaining to the American people for ten months, yet was ridiculed by the mainstream media. He was even called xenophobic for daring to blame China for mishandling the outbreak. ... Viewers were quick to jump all over CNN for reporting what was already widely known by anybody with a working set of eyes and ears. “CNN...

    The link leads to a 40-page Scribd document by several noted mathematicians who studied the Pennsylvania election. They found several critical abnormalities that ALL benefit Biden. The total number of suspicious votes is over 300,000. More than enough to swing the election to Trump. Because it's a Scribd document, I cannot cut and paste. Sorry.

  • US Death Statistics 2018 vs 2020

    11/16/2020 7:41:18 AM PST · by Truthsearcher · 18 replies
    According to CDC at this link total number of deaths in 2018 in the US was 2,839,205 (2019 data is not available yet). And according to the CDC at this link, the estimated total deaths in the US as of Nov 16 in 2020 so far is 2,487,350. If death continues at the same rate for remainder of the year then 2020 total would end up being 2,842,685, which would be essentially identical to 2019 (difference of 0.1%).

  • How the United States really ranks globally with COVID-19: Charts tracking infections and deaths per capita shows US isn't the worst - despite having the largest totals (UK reporting, not the US)

    Daily Mail ^ | October 22, 2020 | Emily Crane
    The United States has the highest number confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in the world amid the ongoing global pandemic. More than 222,000 Americans have now died from coronavirus and there have been 8.3 million confirmed infections. But given the large population of the United States, how does the country's coronavirus outbreak track when compared to other countries? The data shows that a greater proportion of the populations in smaller European, Asian and South American countries are now being infected and dying on a daily basis when compared to the US. The United States still leads the world with the...

    Abraham Wald was a Hungarian mathematician, but his work with statistics in 1943 would prevent the Navy armoring exactly the wrong places on planes, saving the lives of countless flight crews who likely would have been shot down if their most vulnerable parts were left exposed. .... As Jordan Ellenberg wrote in How Not To Be Wrong, there was a running joke in the SRG that Wald's secretaries had to rip notepaper out of his hands as soon as he finished writing on it because he didn't have the clearance to read his own work. .... So the only planes...

    Mathematics and statistics has been a second language for me for 35+ years in my professional life. They are a necessary tool that can be used to measure, estimate, build, engineer and solve programs. They can also be used to persuade. Most people understand that the latter can often be misleading and abused, hence the infamous saying, "Lies and damned lies and statistics."This morning's lesson focuses on Margin of Error.The first thing to understand about measuring anything is there is error. It does not matter if it is weight, volume, mass, or public opinion. Margin of Error (MOE) states by...

    Areport from the UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) shows that since at least June 19th, more people in the UK have been dying of influenza than Covid19. This, of course, is despite the fact that “Covid19 deaths” are incredibly vaguely defined. Under UK law a person only has to test positive for the Sars-Cov-2 virus at any point in the 28 days prior to their death for “Covid19” to be on their death certificate, a policy which totally ignores the fact the majority of Sars-Cov-2 infections are completely symptomless (and has already resulted in huge over-counts). Meanwhile boring old...

    American Thinker ^ | Deane Waldman
    The official U.S. COVID-19 death toll is approaching 150,000, twice the number of flu deaths in 2017-2018. At least 73 percent of those who are listed as “total deaths” died with the virus not because of it. Nonetheless, our country has been frightened into draconian measures to combat COVID-19, viewing it more like Ebola than what it truly is: a respiratory virus that primarily attacks those with life-threatening pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, chronic lung disease, and/or immune deficiency. The death rate from COVID-19 has been reported as 3.5 percent, implying that at least three out of 100 Americans who become infected will die. This is false. A percentage is a ratio,...

    It is unlikely that pundits, politicians, and the general public have ever been so obsessed with numbers as they are right now. I speak, of course, of the numbers surrounding deaths and illnesses attributed to COVID-19. For months now, every new day has brought new headlines about total COVID-19 infections, total deaths, and estimates put out by models claiming to predict how many deaths will soon occur. These numbers have become the focal points of many politicians' careers. This is especially true for state governors and other politicians in executive positions who now in this time of "emergency" essentially rule...

    Over the past few months, we have seen many coronavirus statistics.  We have also seen many statistical errors, which have made some of us skeptical.  My complaint is that not enough of us have been skeptical.  From the point of view of someone who uses statistics as part of his work, these errors are simplistic.  Allow me to name a few of the errors and show how they can deceive people.Choose which attribute to measure (deaths versus cases).  The COVID-19 pandemic is an experiment with seven billion guinea pigs: us.  At the beginning of the experiment, the cases and deaths were counted.  The cases were determined...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/14/2020 | Joe Hoft
    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...

    “One death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.” This pithy aphorism—variants of which have been attributed to several historical figures, mostly Joseph Stalin—is key to understanding the hysteria that has dominated the first half of 2020 in the USA. Its meaning seems simple enough: death only matters inasmuch as the ones dying are made to matter. Accordingly, if just one person dies—but you know (and presumably like) that person—such a death becomes “tragic.” Conversely, no matter how astronomical their number, the deaths of nameless and faceless people carry no “intimate”—that is to say, no emotional or...
