Listening to the Coronavirus 'Experts' Has Led to Death and Despair
Ron Paul Institute ^ | 05/18/2020 | Ron Paul

On April 21st the Washington Post savaged Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s decision to begin opening his state after locking down for weeks. “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination,” sneered the headline.

The author, liberal pundit Dana Milbank, actually found the possibility of Georgians dying to be hilarious, suggesting that, “as a promotion, Georgia could offer ventilators to the first 100 hotel guests to register.”

Milbank, who is obviously still getting paid while millions are out of work, sees his job as pushing the mainstream narrative that we must remain in fear and never question what “experts” like Dr. Fauci tell us...

On April 21st the Washington Post savaged Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s decision to begin opening his state after locking down for weeks. “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination,” sneered the headline.

The author, liberal pundit Dana Milbank, actually found the possibility of Georgians dying to be hilarious, suggesting that, “as a promotion, Georgia could offer ventilators to the first 100 hotel guests to register.”

Milbank, who is obviously still getting paid while millions are out of work, sees his job as pushing the mainstream narrative that we must remain in fear and never question what “experts” like Dr. Fauci tell us.

Well it’s been three weeks since Milbank’s attack on Georgia and its governor, predicting widespread death which he found humorous. His predictions are about as worthless as his character. Not only has Georgia not seen “coronavirus…burn through Georgia like nothing has since William Tecumseh Sherman,” as Milbank laughed, but Covid cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have seen a steep decline since the governor began opening the state.

Maybe getting out in the fresh air and sunshine should not have been prohibited in the first place!

In fact, as we now have much more data, it is becoming increasingly clear that the US states and the countries that locked down the tightest also suffered the highest death rates. Ultra locked-down Italy suffered 495 Covid deaths per million while relatively non-locked down South Korea suffered only five deaths per million. The same is true in the US, where non lockdown states like South Dakota were relatively untouched by the virus while authoritarian-led Michigan, New York, and California have been hardest hit.

In those hardest hit states, we are now seeing that most of the deaths occurred in senior care facilities – after the governors ordered patients sick with Covid to leave the hospitals and return to their facilities. There, they infected their fellow residents who were most likely to have the multiple co-morbidities and advanced age that turned the virus into a death sentence. Will these governors be made to answer for this callous disregard for life?

Yesterday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar admitted the obvious: "We are seeing that in places that are opening, we're not seeing this spike in cases." So why not open everything? Because these petty tyrants cannot stand the idea of losing the ability to push people around.

Shutting down the entire United States over a virus that looks to be less deadly than an average flu virus – particularly among those under 80 who are not already sick – has resulted in mass unemployment and economic destruction. More Americans may die from the wrong-headed efforts to fight the virus than from the virus itself.

Americans should pause and reflect on the lies they are being sold. Masks are just a form of psychological manipulation. Many reputable physicians and scientists have said they are worthless and potentially harmful. Lockdowns are meant to condition people to obey without question. A nation of people who just do what they are told by the “experts” without question is a nation ripe for a descent into total tyranny. This is no empty warning – it’s backed up by history. Time to stand up to all the petty tyrants from our hometowns to Washington DC. It is time to reclaim our freedom.

Leftist scumbag Dana “Over His Head” Milbank ought to look at NYC’s stats as America’s No. 1 Death Destination. He’s a moron, idiot, cretin, lowlife and dirtball punk.

I've been waiting for some scientific evidence of that, or at least some strong anecdotal evidence.

Do you have a link to anything?

Coronavirus Experts = Divide & Control & Eliminate “non essentials” from “essentials” with a vehicle that is a totalitarian’s dream. Trial balloon of what works, what doesn’t in a run anywhere at anytime. Wedges able to be driven between states, businesses, collectives and even families. Originators never held accountable with built in “plausible deniability”. Unfortunately the battlefield has been prepared and we will be at war for the rest of our lives. Asymmetric war. Fat man, little boy, tiny germ. A justice system has not yet been designed to deal with this depth of wickedness.

The same people who handled this COVID-19 virus incident poorly are the same people that want to take over your healthcare

GLOOM, DESPAIR AND AGONY ON ME
From the TV Show “Hee-Haw” (1969 -1992)

Buck Owens & Roy Clark

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

We figured she was rich, loaded to the hilt
And we figured she had class like the Vanderbilts
‘Cause we had heard for years how she was so well reared
How was we to know they meant the way she was built

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND SUICIDES

A very good interview with a real live expert, that does not claim to be all-knowing.

The interview is 55 minutes and goes quickly.
Well worth the time.
At 35 minutes he mentions that SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND SUICIDES are anticipated with the lockdown/economic loss...

YES, 75,000!

Niel Ferguson actually has a HISTORY of sky high death estimates.

His projections led to millions of British livestock killed due to hoof and mouth disease projections. And it turned out inspectors were spreading it through unsterilized shoes.

He predicted up to fifty thousand dead from mad cow disease.

He predicted up to 200 million dead from bird flu. Note that’s worse than the Wuhan virus and they still didn’t lock everything down.

Decisive COVID model the "most devastating software mistake of all time"
wnd.com  | 5/18/2020 | WND staff

The coronavirus death-forecast model that apparently convinced President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to shift to a policy featuring unprecedented lockdowns of the healthy "could go down in history as the most devastating software mistake of all time, in terms of economic costs and lives lost."

That's according to two software company executives writing in the Daily Telegraph newspaper of London.

David Richards, CEO of the British-American software firm WANdisco, and Konstantin Boudnik, the company's vice president of open source development, were referring to the Imperial College of London report March 16 forecasting 2.2 million deaths in the United States and 500,000 in Britain from the coronavirus.

However, just 10 days later, the lead author of the report, Neil Ferguson, told a drastically different story when he testified under oath to a British parliamentary committee.

Ferguson said the U.K. death toll was unlikely to exceed 20,000 and could be much lower.

"Since publication of Imperial's microsimulation model, those of us with a professional and personal interest in software development have studied the code on which policymakers based their fateful decision to mothball our multi-trillion pound economy and plunge millions of people into poverty and hardship," Richards and Boudnik wrote.

"And we were profoundly disturbed at what we discovered."

They found the model "to be totally unreliable."

The authors noted that when other scientists tried to replicate the findings using the same model, they failed.

The software engineers described the model as a "buggy mess that looks more like a bowl of angel hair pasta than a finely tuned piece of programming."

"In our commercial reality we would fire anyone for developing code like this and any business that relied on it to produce software for sale would likely go bust."

It wasn't the first time for Ferguson.

The Express of London noted earlier this month that his models in the fight against the swine flu a decade ago also were way off. He predicted 65,000 people in the U.K. would die. But only 457 succumbed to the disease.

As WND reported March 26, Ferguson's coronavirus study was cited by the White House, Downing Street and other governments in their decisions to implement unprecedented "social distancing" measures.
