During the second week of January, only 23 people tested positive for the flu in the US compared with 14,657 people who tested positive during the same time last year. The total number of general deaths did not change significantly, which is evidence that flu cases are under reported and Covid cases are over reported.
Twitter troll Douglass Mackey, aka Ricky Vaughn, was arrested last week and faces ten years in prison for accusations of “tweeting” memes prior to the 2016 election that poked fun at Hillary Clinton and for voters to “text” their votes. Based on this, Mackey is charged with interfering with an election.
The press is portraying this as massive rioting and violence, but we notice from the images in this news story that – just as in the US – the number of violent rioters and looters could be agent provocateurs, hired to throw bricks, break windows, set fires, and turn public opinion against those who resist lockdown.
