From my perspective based off of the information from the CDC, not only do they frighten the public with overinflated COVID-19 deaths, but they still use Pneumonia, Influenza-like Illness, AND COVID-19. So when they determine if we are below the epidemic threshold, there is pneumonia and flu-like illnesses AND the presumed and confirmed cases.
Even if COVID-19 goes away completely, which it wont (flu is still here, life goes on), we may never get below the epidemic threshold because of the pneumonia and flu-like illness count.
Their explanation is not very helpful. Basically they dont want COVID-19 deaths to be undercounted..
As I explained in my article, Not That Kind of Inflation…, the overinflated death rate, the focus on case counts (and acting as though asymptomatic cases matter), and the ticker never resetting at season changes are just part of the fear aspect of Leftist propaganda.
If you look at the death count, over 125,000 COVID-19 related deaths are people over the age of 65. In order to make COVID-19 look like a mass murderer, they can include deaths by car accident, surgical complications, sepsis, injury self-inflicted or not, cardiac arrest, and more as long as there is suspected or confirmed COVID-19, ante/postmortem. If they didnt add all of those deaths, it wouldnt be dramatic or believable that it was an epidemic.
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again, I dont think the virus is fake, I think the fearmongering hype over it is another piece of the Marxist revolution. Fearful people will do just about anything for guidance and reassurance of their safety. Fear is a tool for ultimate control.
COVID-19 has been politicized by the Marxist Left, the “Democratic Socialists,” and though there was potential for a global crisis that they could use for their revolution, it wasnt the massacre they anticipated or needed to alter the fate of our nation the way they wanted. They persist in their unconstitutional lockdowns and mask mandates to isolate and dehumanize We The People.
When they realized it wasnt going to work, they started raising social unrest. Racial tensions were stirred. It’s still going after three months of rioting with the Left backing their path of destruction. Enabling them by giving in to their demands and releasing the rioters without even a citation or because of bail reform. The ones committing crimes egregious enough to need bail are bailed out by the virtue signaling liberals who give money to the BLM movement.
Anytime the rioting dies down a little, COVID-19 suddenly is the focus of the media again with fabricated spikes in cases and deaths through faulty testing and over inflation. The “experts” like Dr Fauci literally telling us that he won’t “opine” on whether BLM “protests” spread COVID-19 (but going to church or voting are too dangerous). Fear. Fear. Fear.
The Left wants you to be afraid. We must not let the Left’s fearmongering agenda control our lives. They want us to be divided. Divided by race, religion (or lack thereof), sex, sexual orientation, party, class, mask vs no mask, vaccine vs no vaccine, and the list goes on.
The Left thrives on divisiveness because people are easier to control when in small victimized groups with other groups to hate. Then they began to meld the “minority” groups (basically everyone except straight white men and Republicans) to all be NeverTrumpers that they’ve been grooming for communism fighting against American Patriots.
