    Pike County Courier ^ | May 27, 2020
    The number of confirmed coronavirus cases at Belle Reve Assisted Living Center is 25 residents and in-patients, plus 5 employees, according to the data. At Belle Reve Health Care Center, there are 10 coronavirus cases among patients and residents, with the number of deaths and employee cases less than five. Belle Reve accounts for nearly half of the 18 deaths reported so far in Pike County. The totals released by the state do not specify how many of those who died were employees or how many were residents. The department of health says the intention of the data is “to...
  • Why was the U of M Covid Model so "Wrong" About Predicting Deaths through Memorial Day?

    05/27/2020 2:58:38 AM PDT · by JohnRand · 118 replies St Paul Piomeer Press ^ | 05/26/2020 | Dave Orrick
    Earlier this month, the University of Minnesota School of Public Health released projections from a revised coronavirus computer model that said deaths might double by Memorial Day. That didn’t happen. In fact, to a layman, it doesn’t even look close. Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm and a key official involved in the model both acknowledged Tuesday that the short-term death projections of the model are notably higher than the reality — but both defended the value of the model.
  • Horowitz: The CDC confirms remarkably low coronavirus death rate. Where is the media?

    Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19. The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality...
  • Horowitz: The Coronavirus Distortions Are a National Scandal

    Today, we break down the math of coronavirus death rates to show just how inflated the death count is and also just how confined the risk is to a small population. This is incontrovertible math from hard data. Once people realize the shocking math of who has actually died from the virus, the universal lockdowns will be a national scandal.

    Doctors in Northern California say they have seen more deaths from suicide than they’ve seen from the coronavirus during the pandemic. “The numbers are unprecedented,” Dr. Mike deBoisblanc of John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, told ABC 7 News about the increase of suicide deaths adding that he’s seen a “year’s worth of suicides” in the last four weeks alone.

  • Mexico urges U.S. to probe of 'all' officials with ties to ex-minister

    Reuters via YAHOO ^ | May 4, 2020
    Mexico's president on Monday urged Washington to investigate "all" officials, including members of elite U.S. law enforcement agencies, with ties to a former Mexican security minister accused of taking bribes from a top drug gang. The arrest of ex-Security Minister Genaro Garcia Luna in Dallas late last year sent shockwaves across Mexico, where he had spearheaded a militarized assault on powerful drug gangs beginning under former President Felipe Calderon in 2006. Garcia Luna was subsequently indicted on charges of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the Sinaloa Cartel, the gang once led by drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman....

    New York health officials were warned in writing that a Brooklyn nursing home where 55 patients have died of coronavirus was overwhelmed — weeks before it began topping the state’s official list of resident COVID-19 deaths, damning emails show. Cobble Hill Health Center CEO Donny Tuchman sent a desperate email to state Health Department officials on April 9, asking if there was “a way for us to send our suspected covid patients” to the hospital built inside the Javits Convention Center or the US Naval hospital ship Comfort — the under-utilized federal medical facilities on Manhattan’s West Side. “We don’t...

    The president of the Southern Baptist Convention is taking heat for sitting down for a feel-good discussion with a controversial Muslim scholar and failing to criticize Sharia and defend Jews. JD Greear shared the stage last week with Omar Suleiman at North Carolina State University as part of an interfaith dialogue presented by The Veritas Forum, which brings faith-based thinkers in front of college students. Even before their first words were spoken, the two guests brought their own controversies: Greear has been accused by some Southern Baptists for overseeing a leftward drift of the world’s largest denomination. Suleiman, meanwhile, has...

    After weeks of ignoring the series of scandals surrounding former Vice President Joe BidenÂ’s son that surfaced during President Donald TrumpÂ’s impeachment trial, reporters are suddenly interested again as Biden reclaims his frontrunner status for the Democratic presidential nomination.The focus on Joe BidenÂ’s son, Hunter Biden, which never received adequate media attention in the first place, tapered off throughout the presidentÂ’s impeachment trial and became nearly absent by the time Senate proceedings got underway. In the same week Trump was acquitted, Joe BidenÂ’s presidential hopes began to plummet following a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses. BidenÂ’s chances of becoming...
  • Bloomberg’s 2016 comments degrading farmers are totally off-base

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s campaign slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders I-Vt. for circulating a 2016 video of Bloomberg’s comments on farming in which he said, “You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.”. Bloomberg’s campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said that the comments were “completely out of context.” The problem is that the rest of Bloomberg’s comments don’t help him. Take his comparison to the information economy. “Now comes the information economy and the information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology...

    Florida man strikes again. The former mayor of Milton, Fla., was sentenced last week to 51 months in prison and ordered to pay back $650,000 he stole from the United Way. Guy Thompson, who served as Milton’s mayor from 1994 to 2014, stole the funds while he was the executive director of the United Way in Santa Rosa County, according to the Pensacola News Journal. Thompson “devised a complex scheme where he kept a portion of money intended for use to pay United Way’s regular bills and expenses by replacing it with other donation checks no one at United Way...

    Hunter Biden's attorneys fired back Monday after a private investigation firm again attempted to stage a highly unusual intervention in his ongoing child-custody dispute in Arkansas, this time claiming its investigators have lawfully obtained access to Biden's bank account records and confirmed his involvement in a massive, $156 million "counterfeiting scheme." In a motion to strike, Biden's legal team unconditionally denied the unverified claims, and called the effort by the Florida-based D&A Investigations another obviously bogus "scheme by a non-party simply to make scandalous allegations in the pending suit to gain media attention without any material or pertinent material." D&A...

    Whereas abuse of power is a separate issue, how can the House impeach Trump for "Obstruction of Congress" when it is the Constitutional right of the co-equal Judicial Branch to act as the arbiter in the event of the House of Reps wanting the White House to comply with summons and turning over what it believes is important and pertinent documents, the White House/Executive as another co-equal branch says take it to the courts to decide, the House of Reps refuses, then demands that the Executive acquiesce to its demands, unconstitutionally acts as if it possesses those Judicial Branch powers...

    I don't know if this qualifies as a "bombshell" or not, but George Papadopolous last night said that he was being spied on BEFORE he joined the Trump Campaign. He stated that it started when he was working for Ben Carson. If this is true, must we not expect that Obama was spying on ALL ogf the candidates, not just Trump?

    ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE - Pope Francis said Tuesday that the latest round of financial scandal at the Vatican is actually a success story, because the situation was revealed thanks to an internal Vatican probe, which he said demonstrates that new controls are working. The pontiff also called both owning and deploying nuclear weapons “immoral,” saying that point should be added to the Catholic catechism, and suggested that it might be time to re-think the veto power wielded by a handful of countries in the United Nations Security Council. His comments came during an airborne news conference on the return...

    Fifty weeks before voters say yea or nay to Democrats’ plan for a graduated income tax that would rake in new dollars by the billions, here’s what the people of Illinois see: · Citizens see federal agents ripping at the innards of Illinois governance and politics. From clout artists at Chicago’s City Hall to lobbyists for a big utility to one state legislator who allegedly tried to bribe another, the feds are exploring how bills pass, how favors flow and how politicians scam their fellow citizens. These are individual cases, for now. But the intensifying percussion of warrants, raids and...

    I, for one, have grown weary of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), appearing on every other talk show bloviating about spygate, Ukrainegate, collusiongate, and all the wrongs committed against the Trump presidency and then doing nothing to fight back other than getting his face in front of the camera. Lindsey, do your job or get off the pot -- call some hearings, as you promised, and go for the Democrat’s jugular. Show that passion you showed during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when you went on an epic rant against that bevy of Democratic presidential wannabes who...
