Last month, Gideon Lichfield, the Editor-in-Chief of MIT Technology Review, wrote about a proposal from the Imperial College of London, the institution that created the fake models that warned the US would suffer 2-million deaths from COVID-19. A new model shows six spikes that are projected to continue through to November 2021. The discredited staff now concludes that isolation and school closures will be needed two-thirds of the time, roughly two months on and one month off, until a vaccine is available, which will take at least 18 months.
A Chinese study showed that the country’s PCR swab test is so inaccurate it gave a false positive 80% of the time for those who were diagnosed based on contact only. Nevertheless, authorities can use these tests to claim a pandemic and shut down society. Last week, Professor Anthony Costello, of University College London’s Institute for Global Health, made essentially the same prediction, apparently based on the same computer models. UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock says the government will soon release a contact-tracing app to track everyone’s movements and show the identity of everyone they come near. According to he BBC, cell-phone users will be required to answer an on-screen questionnaire. If judged to be ‘at risk’ of infection, alerts will be sent to everyone they have been near, ordering them to immediately go into self-isolation. A similar app was used in China during the initial phases of the pandemic. Citizens who refused to install it were banned from entering public spaces and from using public transport. -GEG
To stop coronavirus we will need to radically change almost everything we do: how we work, exercise, socialize, shop, manage our health, educate our kids, take care of family members.
We all want things to go back to normal quickly. But what most of us have probably not yet realized—yet will soon—is that things won’t go back to normal after a few weeks, or even a few months. Some things never will.
It’s now widely agreed (even by Britain, finally) that every country needs to “flatten the curve”: impose social distancing to slow the spread of the virus so that the number of people sick at once doesn’t cause the health-care system to collapse, as it is threatening to do in Italy right now. That means the pandemic needs to last, at a low level, until either enough people have had Covid-19 to leave most immune (assuming immunity lasts for years, which we don’t know) or there’s a vaccine.
How long would that take, and how draconian do social restrictions need to be? Yesterday President Donald Trump, announcing new guidelines such as a 10-person limit on gatherings, said that “with several weeks of focused action, we can turn the corner and turn it quickly.” In China, six weeks of lockdown are beginning to ease now that new cases have fallen to a trickle.
But it won’t end there. As long as someone in the world has the virus, breakouts can and will keep recurring without stringent controls to contain them. In a report yesterday (pdf), researchers at Imperial College London proposed a way of doing this: impose more extreme social distancing measures every time admissions to intensive care units (ICUs) start to spike, and relax them each time admissions fall. Here’s how that looks in a graph.
Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.
A former UK Supreme Court judge’s comments come in the wake of reports that the government is planning to issue ‘freedom passes’ for people who agree to vaccination or twice testing negative for the virus in one week.
Rudy Giuliani said that 1.8-million mail-in ballots were sent out, but 2.5 million were counted. He said that 672,770 votes that were not inspected by anyone were secretly stuffed into the ballot box. A witness described the huge “spikes” in Pennsylvania ballots that went 600,000 to Joe Biden vs 3,200 for Trump.
Businessman warns people to prepare storing food and water. Some grocery stores in New Mexico were shuttered by the state after workers tested positive for Covid-19. This has resulted in people waiting for hours in lines to get food. 45 million people are unemployed and homelessness is on the rise.
Airlines are likely to require passengers to be vaccinated, because governments are poised require vaccines as a condition for lifting quarantines for new arrivals. “Common Pass,” is an app endorsed by the World Economic Forum to evaluate the Covid-19 test results of passengers and determine whether they should travel.
The captains of industry reportedly have united against Trump in support of a Biden, and now the nation’s top executives have urged Trump to begin the transition process. The executives in all of these companies are committed to globalism, which means the end to American as a sovereign, independent nation.
If Democrats take control over all three branches of government, they plan to pass the Heroes Act that will allow a permanent Democrat majority. Illegal aliens would receive stimulus checks. Federal inmates with ‘health conditions’ will be released. States will receive a $500-million grant to release inmates.
Antifa leader Adam Rahuba tweeted to Trump: “If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas. Your supporters will not be able to go to work or go to the grocery store to feed their families. We are armed and will retaliate to attempts of vehicular homicide.”
New York Governor Cuomo says, if people are thankful for the sacrifices that seniors have made, as well as doctors, nurses and “essential” workers, they should show respect by isolating on Thanksgiving. He said, “Be alone physically. Be connected spiritually.”
Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris celebrated the news that President Donald Trump will allow General Services Administrator Emily Murphy, who received death threats, to begin the initial steps for a transition of power to Biden. Trump has not conceded.
The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.
The CDC claims the purpose of isolation is to protect vulnerable people. However, housing a bunch of sick people together has already proven to increase death rates. The timeline to terminate the program depends on sufficient hospital capacity, vaccines, and/or when the so-called pandemic subsides.
San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura, & Riverside County Sheriffs will not enforce the curfew order. The Los Angeles Sheriff will take a voluntary compliance approach, will not make any arrests related to order. Several of the sheriffs are refusing to enforce the curfew, questioning the constitutionality of the edict.
The Erie County Sheriff and Health Dept. officials attempted to disperse a meeting claiming it was in violation of Gov. Cuomo’s new 10-person-or-less rule for gatherings. The crowd stood its ground and demanded the police leave. Law enforcement complied, apparently because they did not have an arrest warrant.
The Biden criminal-justice plan would slap crippling cost of consent decrees on police without any evidence of civil rights violations, and would expand consent decrees to prosecutors’ offices for prosecuting crime. Black Lives Matter, Kamala Harris, and Biden are silent on the topic of Black-on-Black homicide.
Some critics say she made unrealistic claims about the number of votes that were flipped. Powell said she plans to forge ahead with her lawsuit representing Americans “who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic.”

The entire block was placed under quarantine amid chaos and confusion, as the health department withheld information from neighbors subjected to the quarantine. There is no evidence so far that the man actually died of the coronavirus.
Data indicates that 128 people, less than half of one percent of the population, have died from illness attributed to the coronavirus. The population of Nevada’s population is 3.2 million people, and it is estimated that 900,000 people have already lost their jobs, with 300,000 of those filing for unemployment.
