As detailed and forecast in the Trends Journal, since the mainstream media began peddling COVID Hysteria this past January, and politicians across the globe seized on it by issuing unprecedented, draconian lockdowns based on unsubstantiated, non-scientific, made-up orders, we warned of the dire socioeconomic and geopolitical implications that are now unfolding.
The riots ripping across the United States are but one example of the unprecedented convergence of man-made disasters that will destroy lives and destroy nations if we stay on the ruinous path paved by politicians.
We have entered the “Greatest Depression.” The implications of millions of businesses going out of business and hundreds of millions out of work and out of money will kill tens of millions.
Rather than reviving Franklin D. Roosevelt’s message during the Great Depression that “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” when it comes to COVID-19, from the media and politicians, instead, we constantly hear their emotionally paralyzing message: “The only thing we have to keep fearing… is fear itself.”
Ignored by Fear Mongers
Out of the mainstream news is the story from Rome of Italian doctor Alberto Zangrillo, head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milano, which had been hit hard by coronavirus, who said on Sunday, “In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy.”
Dr. Zangrillo called out the politicians and their “experts” for spreading COVID Fear, saying, “We’ve got to get back to being a normal country. Someone has to take responsibility for terrorizing the country.”
Indeed, it was the cover of our 3 March Trends Journal: “CORONAVIRUS 9/11 – SPREADING TERROR.”
Now much of the world hides behind their masks, abhorring human contact, living in terror that COVID will kill them.
Germany’s COVID Con Game
There’s a battle going on in Germany between the government and their Presstitutes to silence a leaked report from their Interior Ministry that defied the official lines of COVID Hysteria. The report said politicians were overestimating its dangers, and the new virus was no more dangerous than many other viruses.
They noted, as the facts continue to substantiate, that those who would die from the virus were near the end of their lives and were weakened by pre-existing illnesses.
They also pointed out, as we have in the Trends Journal, that 1.5 million people worldwide died from the 2017-2018 flu compared to 250,000 (at the time of the leaked report) from coronavirus.
In 2017-18, 25,000 Germans died of the flu. Today, 8,618 have died from COVID.
How much clearer can it be? Why do so many believe what they are being told?
We know why, and we have been writing about it since the end of January: Media and Political Puppet Masters Peddling COVID Hysteria.
Yinon Weiss, a bioengineer, recently stated in RealClearPolitics, “Leaders relied on these faulty models. Dissenting views were suppressed. The media flamed fears and the world panicked.” Also stated by Mr. Weiss,
- “Among people under 65, the odds of COVID-19 death are roughly in line with existing baseline odds of dying in any given year.
- If you are a healthy individual under 50 years old, the survival rate of those infected by the virus is 99.99 percent.
- The median age of Italian COVID-19 deaths is over 80, not a single person under 30 had died, and 99 percent of those who did had preexisting illnesses.
- The whole linchpin of the lockdown argument is that it would have been even worse without such a step. Sweden never closed down borders, primary schools, restaurants, or businesses, and never mandated masks, yet 99.8% of their people under 60 have survived, and their hospitals were never overburdened.”
TRENDPOST: Although we have reported many of the facts above in previous Trends Journals, we continue to do so to illustrate the numerous COVID Fallacies promoted by the mainstream media and politicians, which generally have been accepted as truth by the vast majority of the public.
Now, there is a push by the media and their favored “experts” to criticize Sweden for not imposing dictatorial lockdown measures, hyping what they want to fabricate their case.
For example, they’ve pointed out that Sweden’s death rate is higher than other Baltic states including Norway, Finland, and Denmark. When measuring per capita deaths per population, however, Sweden – where events with more than 50 people were banned and universities and secondary schools shut down, but few other restrictions were imposed – its per capita COVID-19 death rate is about the same as France, the UK, and other European nations that have been locked down.
Moreover, with 4,395 deaths out of a population of 10,000,000, or 0.044 percent, and with over 50 percent of the virus victims chronically ill from elder care homes, Swedes have not suffered the dire financial hardships of those locked down.
For example, Denmark’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to fall by an estimated 5.25 percent due to the lockdown, which will be worse than the 2007-2008 financial crisis, while Sweden’s GDP grew at an annual rate of 0.4 percent in the first quarter.
TRENDPOST: As we continue to note, the media whores who keep selling fear and hysteria ignore the fact that previous virus and flus were as deadly or more deadly than COVID-19. According to World Health Organization data published in 2017 (when Sweden had 230,000 less people), “Influenza and pneumonia deaths in Sweden reached 3,589, or 4.74% of total deaths.”
This metric holds true worldwide. By the sheer facts, the coronavirus was/is artificially pumped up into an epidemic by money-hungry media that was losing viewership (see our 5 May article, “CNN – How Low Can You Go?”) and power-hungry politicians who pumped it up to epidemic proportions.
Believe the “Experts”?
When the virus fist hit China, as we have long noted in the Trend Journal, the media kept promoting inflated virus death projections. Among them was Imperial College epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, whose deeply flawed model, predicting some two million people in the United States would die from the virus, contributed to the lockdown hysteria.
Mr. Weiss also noted, “This is the same Neil Ferguson who in 2005 predicted 200 million could die from the bird flu. Total deaths over the last 15 years turned out to be 455. This is the same Neil Ferguson who in 2009 predicted that 65,000 people could die in the U.K. from the swine flu. The final number ended up around 392. Now, in 2020, he predicted that 500,000 British would die from coronavirus.”
TRENDPOST: To date, with some 40,000 COVID related deaths in the U.K., the Imperial College projection was just 460,000 off the mark. As for its U.S. fatality projection, they missed it by 1,890,000, yet this is essentially ignored… and they keep quoting the Imperial College’s latest forecast models.
Mr. Weiss goes on to note further inaccurate forecasts including America’s most “respected” experts in the world including America’s favorite, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
- “On Feb. 17, just a month before the first U.S. lockdown, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said that this new strain of coronavirus possessed ‘just minuscule’ danger to the United States.” In early March, the surgeon general said that ‘masks are NOT effective in preventing [the] general public from catching coronavirus.’
As late as March 9, the day Italy started its lockdown, Dr. Fauci did not encourage cancellation of ‘large gatherings in a place [even if] you have community spread,’ calling it ‘a judgment call.’”
- “There are now places like Santa Clara County in California, entering its third month of lockdown despite COVID-19 patients occupying less than 2 percent of hospital capacity and none on ventilators. Yet there are 2 million county residents effectively under house arrest. Some doctors and nurses in the area had their pay cut by 20 percent so hospitals could avoid bankruptcy, reflecting perhaps the epitome of this senseless catastrophe.”
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: As the media keeps counting those who died from the virus, they omit the hard facts and scientific data of who is dying and why.
And for the general public, as the 28 April Trends Journal cover illustrates, the vast majority are “DUMB ENOUGH TO BELIEVE BUSH’S WARS, DUMB ENOUGH TO BELIVE THE COVID WAR.” Also oblivious to the hard facts and scientific data, the majority believes what Presstitutes sell them and obediently follow their leader’s orders.
