.Welcome to Finance and Fury, the Furious Friday edition. This is episode two in the coronavirus series, so if you missed last Friday’s episode, it might be worthwhile going back and having a listen to it.  It covered the concept of the economy and how we make it up, but today well jump in to it.

The whole point of this series is to look at the question “Is the cure worse than the disease”. In this episode we’ll start to look at this. First we need to go through the numbers that have been represented to us and we’ll start from the disease side of the equation.

This episode is all about the numbers, and when it comes to numbers, this is one of my personal strengths as I’ve spent my life looking at numbers. I will spend some of the time in this episode looking at the validity of the numbers being presented to us. In addition to numbers, another personal strength is pattern recognition, which makes me good at what I do. On the flipside, I know that can make me fairly abrasive and to the point which is a downside to my personality, because I’m no much a people pleaser, but prefer to just present the facts as they become apparent.

  1. Numbers are important, as they are the justification for shutting down the whole economy
  2. In this episode, we will look deeper into the numbers. Once these numbers are explained, it might start to raise some questions, if they haven’t for you already, on the factors being represented as the justification for the shut downs
    1. When it comes to these numbers, none of this is my thought or opinion. They come from experts who have spent their lives researching pandemics, or from the official statistics which can easily be misrepresented, as nobody has taken the time to explain any of this, or on the other side of the casual observer, not been bother to take the time to look deeper. On the media’s side, they are just willing to misrepresent the facts if they think it will get additional ad revenue through views. For scientists, additional funding, for hospital insurance payments or for governments, greater control.
  3. This episode is to help provide evidence – not just rely on Arguments based on emotions or from Authority – because as we will see – those presenting these arguments are relying on inaccurate statistics as their foundations
    1. In addition – Once you see how these numbers and statistics are being reported – you might see why I question the official narrative

Before getting into the numbers surrounding the disease – how many people have been affected by the Government restrictions

  1. No way to be sure – but hazard a guess to everyone in some way or another
    1. Personally – through being restricted in their choice of association – or even going out in public without potentially getting fined, professionally or economically through loss of employment or income, or investments/super dropping – Effects – range massively – but far more wide spread than those who have the disease

 

Let’s get into the numbers – First – and the easiest – is the cases being reported – Corona cases versus active cases – the total cases being reported are not the number of active cases –

  1. The total cases – 2m – but recovered 500k – in Aus – 6.4k but 3.6k recovered – 2.7k with the illness – but 97% have mild conditions – so the number who have recover now is greater than those who have it – apparently –
  2. But – all the data points like worldometer – click on the sources – it is from Twitter or Channel 7
    1. There are no links for sources from any health officials that are verifiable – you have to dig deeper to find the sources from each state’s health authorities – but even these are based around the assumptions of testing – which we will get into
    2. Other sites like ourworldindata had to stop using the WHO data to inconsistencies in reporting
  3. Trusting the numbers for this pandemic – relies on consistency of accuracy – but in Previous cases – Swine Flu of 2009 – the CDC and other government organisation got caught out for not testing anyone – whilst continuing to report increasing numbers in cases –
    1. So the CDC ceased to test people – But yet – the media kept reporting ever higher numbers – even though there was no way to track this – but people believe that any source from the media must be legitimate – as otherwise they would be caught out
    2. CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, was working on a Swine Flu story discovered that the CDC had secretly stopped counting US cases of the illness – while, of course, continuing to warn Americans about its unchecked spread – but her story got crushed – managed to track down the original and other reports on this – links in the show notes –
    3. Understand that the CDC’s main job is counting cases and reporting the numbers – so what was the Agency up to, and why stop?
      1. Here is an excerpt from the 2014 interview with Sharyl Attkisson: “We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! But in the end, no [CBS television news] broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype.” – why is this? Well – it went against the narrative
    4. But what is being said today sounds very similar to events playing out back then – in 2009 announcements were coming out of the WHO and the CDC; there was this bad virus; it was spreading; travellers were carrying it; people were being tested at airports; the source of the germ seemed to be animal-to-human transmission (a coronavirus); deaths were being reported; fear was rising
      1. At this time – focusing on the 2009 Swine flu pandemic – it was hyped to the sky by the CDC and the WHO – and western media – where every major health organisation was calling for people to take the Swine Flu vaccine
      2. But the problem was, the CDC was concealing a scandal – that they stopped testing – while, of course, continuing to warn Americans about its unchecked spread
    5. Reporters and by extension – the average citizen was saying that this was the big one – other people were saying that this was a bioweapon created in a lab to destroy humans – exactly like what is playing out just like now
      1. Then, the CDC estimates there are 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US – but was a guess with no actual testing – instead of coming clean – they doubled down and said 1 in 6 people in USA might be infected
      2. We will come back to this and many other so called pandemics in a future episode – as these diseases are an easy out for governmental or corporate liability from making people sick – know it sounds crazy – but wait until we go through it in a future episode – as I said – been doing a lot of research and am fairly decent at pattern recognition – ironically – at the very same time many people are getting sick from pollutants from air pollution in Wuhan or northern Italy (massive cases of pneumonia or COPD) or faeces lakes around the pig farms in Mexico in 2009 – but a random virus is the cause – but what about all the other people in the world getting sick? Great question – again we will go into this in further detail in a future episode – along with the virus hunter organisation responsible for this
  • The same thing is playing out now as back then – the media and politicians are massively focusing on the numbers –
    1. Politicians – shutting down every day life and by extension the economy based around nothing truly new – they might say this is a new disease – but listen to any honest virologist or doctor – it is SARS 2
    2. Media – getting a lot more in revenues from reporting these numbers – and being their own source for statistic sites
      1. Most reporters, when an epidemic is announced, take the bait – always looking for news – the worse the better –
      2. A new virus story always sounds good – it will get attention – as people will want to know about it if it can be dangerous to them
    3. These are just some of the factors to why I am suspect of the numbers – if someone is a proven liar – do you continue to trust what they say – We have all had that one friend – who embellishes the truth or just lies cause they are insecure – question: do you trust them when they tell you about the time they hung out with some famous person?
      1. If there was no real Swine Flu epidemic beyond what the media, WHO and CDC was telling us – why should we trust them this time around? Well – because people are dying – this is where it is important to look at the numbers of those dying – and the causality versus correlation

Before we get into that – lets go through the testing and the methodology

  1. The testing – how it is being done and what is the accuracy for false positives – lets have a look at what is being used as testing – and how it was formulated – as I haven’t seen anywhere in the mainstream run through this – when you learn how it is done – may raise some questions
  2. Watched a lecture from Dr Andrew Kauffman – He has two full hour lectures – first is in the show notes – but in summary
    1. Traced the events back to ground zero at Wuhan- where the Covid-19 reportedly originated at an unsanitary seafood wet market – went through how the first tests were conducted surrounding a mysterious case of pneumonia – just note that Wuhan is the most polluted city in the world – and all history – heavy metals and also has one of the highest pneumonia rates in the world – but instead of looking at other possible causes like “bad seafood” from unhygienic conditions in the wet markets, or just the worst air pollution known to man – the medical team immediately suspected a virus – as the patients did not recover after taking antibiotics
      1. Out of the first 198 patients, lung fluids were taken from 7 of them; but instead of “purifying and visualizing” the suspected virus, what the team did was look at the genetic material called RNA and its sequencing; a diagnostic test called PT-PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) was quickly undertaken by which it was concluded that the RNA pertains to the Covid-19
      2. But as these tests merely looked for the RNA – this has been misleadingly as a testing base – as no actual virus was identified – just markers in people who are sick – however it has been thus used as a basis to identify the virus
  • But the basic flaw of this kind of method is that the RNA present could also be present in other particles in the lung fluids such as exosomes; as a result, exosomes could have been misidentified as the virus
    1. exosomes naturally occur in body cells and can be found also in the lungs. Exosomes are produced by the body’s cells to fight toxins coming from a variety of sources: disease, infection, toxic substances, stress (fear), ionizing radiation, cancer, asthma, injury, etc. These exosomes play a beneficial role in a person’s health because these enzymes fight toxins or injury to a cell when there is an insult or infection in the body
  1. These was no “gold standard” provided for the test – which would require the “purification and visualization” to determine that the RNA came only from the virus, not anything else – instead – the test failed to meet the “gold standard” and the result is that exosomes would also be detected in those tests
  2. He presented electron micrographs of exosomes and of what is thought to be Covid-19 – Two sets of comparative micrographs reveal the similarity of their shape and appearance – measurements by nanometer, the size and diameter of what is said to be Covid 19 and exosome, whether inside or outside a cell, are exactly the same. Both of them also contain RNA and the same ACE 2 receptor
    1. Also – expert James Hildreth, M.D., the President and CEO of Meharry Medical College who said in his professional article that “. . . the virus is fully an exosome in every sense of the word.”
  3. the production of exosomes that are, in turn, detected as “false positive.” – this test does not conclusively determine if a person is infected with Covid because it functions only in the finding and sequencing of RNA which could be present in other particles.
    1. It is estimated that this has a rate of 80% for error, this test could lead to a “false positive” that could bloat the numbers of so-called positive tests
    2. So – The more testing, the more cases with the number of false positives being present – estimates around 80% of false positives – similar to the number of those who show no symptoms – question – if someone has no symptoms – are they sick?
    3. In addition – in regions where there have been larger groups of the population tested – many come back as having already had the illness or have anti-bodies to it – which should bring up additional questions in the methodology being used

Last but not least, the death rates – this is the one that most people are relying on – that huge numbers are dying – well – lots of people die every day

  1. Dying of coronavirus – or dying with coronavirus – or even a false positive in testing – first – lets look at how death certificates are reported
    1. CDC advice on death certificates – ‘COVID should be reported on the death certificate where it is assumed to have caused or contributed to death’ “if the deceased had another chronic condition such as COPD that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in part 2 – but technically not the actual cause of death
      1. But as one Doctor reported in the US – Dr Scott Jensen – don’t even need to test someone for Covid – you can assume it contributed to death if they died of respiratory illnesses – like pneumonia
    2. Other diseases – like Pneumonia deaths in the USA have gone down massively – whilst Corona has gone up to pick up the shortfall – for example – when looking at the weekly cause of deaths from pneumonia or the flu – these have gone down for the most recently reported figures – up until week 11 of the year – about mid-march
      1. 2014 – 52k, 2015 – 58k, 2016 – 47k, 2017 – 53k, 2018, 64k, 2019 – 48k – this year for 11 weeks – 43k – or about 10k less than average – which is about the same as the deaths from Corona reported back then – not implying anything – just find the discrepancy in numbers interesting given the testing and reporting on death certificates
    3. Even numbers in Italy – If you have no pre-morbidity – has a 0.9% chance of death from Covid – of those average age has been 78 – then – over 50% of deaths have been in those with 3+ pre-morbidity condition – i.e. have cancer, heart disease, etc.
      1. All of these numbers and reporting of deaths based around the leeway in classifications and historical statistical averages seem suspicious – at the minimum they should be questioned
      2. For those saying Drs are dying from this – well Drs are dying – but is this outside of the norm? Drs can be some of the unhealthiest people – doing shift work – my friends tell me about the overweight smokers who are Drs they work with – all because someone is a Dr doesn’t make them immune from death! This argument is silly when you look into it
    4. What about medical errors – here – rather than is the cure worse than the disease – is the treatment worse than the disease?
      1. Remember Medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death – this isn’t to disparage the medical industry – my two best friends are Drs in the hospitals – their jobs are much harder than mine – but a lot of it is guess work – and when the higher up authorities give you a false positive or treatment plans to base your decisions on – issues will happen –
      2. For example – one Dr in the USA has called for hospitals to stop using ventilators for Covid patients – it is apparently a respiratory disease – so why is this?  
    5. They claim that the treatment using Ventilators – are they actually causing deaths –80% of patients put on ventilators have died – one Drs is pushing for stopping using them – As whilst there is an oxygen deficiency in blood cells in positive patients – which could be from a number of factors – the ventilators increase pressure in lungs – which can kill if not needed
    6. Why in the USA were they being used? – beyond the false positive testing – one statement from Minnesota State Senator, Dr. Scott Jensen has shed some light on this – he says:
      1. “Right now Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much. Nobody can tell me, after 35 years in the world of medicine, that sometimes those kinds of things [don’t] [have] impact on what we do…”
      2. He also clarified that these 2 payouts mentioned are standard insurance payments from Medicare in the USA – which would go to the hospital and some hospitals have a pay-share plan with their staff doctors – commission structure
      3. In comparison – take a Medicare patient who is diagnosed with simple non-COVID pneumonia. The hospital would receive a one-time Medicare lump-sum payout of $4600 – when looking at the economics and incentives – there is a big incentive – at least in the USA for a positive Covid test and to treat with a ventilator – even through it might kill the person

So in summary, if anything, all of this should at least raise some questions. This is why I have been suspect of this whole situation from the start, as based around the errors in the testing along with the classification in reporting of cause of deaths – no way to accurately tell how dangerous this illness is – but I do have a good idea about how dangerous it is to shut down whole sections of the economy – we went through that last week

  1. When it comes to Australia = Our curve has flattened – if not crashed – but the vast majority of cases initially were from those overseas – but again – given the misinformation around the official reporting – the question remains – is not the cure worse than the disease

 

Next Furious Friday episode, we will again be looking at this further, into the economics of the situation. Also, next Say What Wednesday episode will be looking at this also due to a great question around this whole topic.
