From the Wordpress article on May 1, 2021, by Scott Locklin.
All the things they got wrong as of August 2021 listed here. Hoping I don’t have to write another one of these, though not optimistic. I’ve been writing this stuff down since the last shitpost on the topic, so some or most of it will seem irrelevant now. Really you can stop reading now; people were at each other’s throats over this crap, literally until February 24 when Putl0r cured the world of corona-chan. The Empire of Lies (aka the US establishment) hasn’t acknowledged that it basically goofed everything up, and is presently engaged in distracting you with more nonsense. I’m here to remind everyone what unbearably incompetent morons they all are.
Most important thing in the world. I had the wuhan coof. Considering the debauched life I’ve lived, it scarcely seems possible I survived, but survive I did (as a probabilist, I gave myself 999/1000, which is about my probability of dropping dead in a given year at my age). It started as a dry cough, which I attributed to the faggy little cigarillos I occasionally smoke. I was then sick for approximately 3-4 days, at which point I was back in the park smoking cigarillos with my pal “Henry.” Henry suggested I avail myself of the abundant local public health facilities in case my still nasty sounding cough was the ‘rona after all. It turned out it was. Shit I noticed: it made the skin on top of my head and back sore in an uncanny way. I think it also gave me a fever, but I didn’t have anything ’round the house but a pulse oximiter until I was mostly over it. I also felt run down for maybe a week afterwords, where I would wake up feeling amazing, but slowly develop more achey symptoms over the course of the day. Nothing terrible; cough got a bit worse and I felt ratty, so I just took nyquil and went to sleep. My doctor made me not exercise for a month until he was able to stick tubes up my ass and X-ray and probe every inch of my body to tell me what I already knew: I am in reasonably good health for a man of my poor moral fiber. Incidentally my little illness occurred a week after writing about how badly the establishment fucked up. It sure did seem for a while like the lizard men were sending assassins with old timey bug-spray pumps filled with ‘rona after unbelievers, but I’m pretty sure I either caught it from wresting with a sleazy woman or having some other tests done in a hospital.
Because I am a meathead, I popped more than my usual allotment of vitamins and so on for the duration of my illness. Doxycycline and quercetin both seemed to have an acute effect; I popped the doxy thinking I might have had a lung butter infection from a dirty mask (likely a big chunk of Spanish Flu casualties). One of my dudes recently had this problem and I didn’t want to bug my doctor over the weekend. Doxy almost immediately made me feel better. As it turns out it seems to have useful antiviral properties as well (which I knew about), and kills off whatever other nasty bacterial shit might be living in your lungs. I take vitamin-D and an assortment of minerals and other vitamins as well, which I double up in times of sickness. Oh yeah, I also have used NAC for years as a hangover pill; I took some of it, and it seemed to loosen up the lungs a bit. Fuck you FDA; I’m out of your reach now. Double fuck you to Gupta-weirdoes who insisted I join you in your conformist and possibly dangerous follies: look on my insanely superior immune system and despair. I also have long-haul symptoms: it seems to have cured my presumably previously arthritic joints, which are now smoothly operating as they were in high school. Thank you based wuhan-coof. I’m making a joke about it, but it was a fairly puzzling and very strong effect. Google hasn’t turned up any studies about this, so it’s quite possible that the doxycycline killed off some chlamydia of the joints or something, though I mention it in case there were others, or if someone would like to look for such effects. I would have willingly subjected myself to an illness of that severity (unpleasant, but normal) to fix up my joints.
Both delta and omegatron variants were attributed ridiculously high rates of infection, as far as I can tell, through a statistical artifact. The same statistical artifact, more or less, that made corona-chan appear to have a 10% fatality rate at the beginning of the pandemic. We’re not measuring the spread of variants; we’re measuring the spread in test (for the variant) availability. Of course each variant looks higher in infection rate (aka basic reproduction number R); the supply chains for genomic sequencing tests are improving each time we roll out a new one. People start looking as soon as they get the heads up, so they see it; this phenomenon “spreads” faster than the virus itself does. Same story with prior variant spreads. A guess on my part, but arguably a pretty good one; for a while you could see a phenomenon called “muh flurona” where someone might have flu and covid at the same time …. because they now have PCR tests which test for both. Lol, retards.They again have oddly specific “just so stories” on how the variants came about -aka supposedly omicron came from an AIDS patient in Botswana. I believe that about as much as I believe in the bat sandwich idea they pitched the first time. Each variant was supposed to be even more teeth chatteringly scary, as pitched by “experts,” but it appears evolution works as expected and they’re evolving to be more harmless. Assuming it wasn’t another lab release designed to get us to herd immunity (remember the very specific just so story about Botswana AIDS patients), in which case, well done sirs: please report to the penitentiary immediately where the rest of us can keep an eye on you.
I called it publicly in August 2021, though it was obvious by June or so: they do not work as anything resembling a sterilizing vaccine. From a public health point of view: they do not work at all to prevent spread of disease. For the first few weeks, your immune system is actually depressed; attacking your own body for making spike protons. You get a degree of immunity after that, maybe a bit more than a degree if you are an old person, and then …. nothing. Most of my vaccinated friends has had the disease by now. You can see it in the overall statistics. The vaccine rolled out, and a fairly high number of people took it; in the US, something like 70% of the adult population. Higher in other countries. Yet Covid deaths in 2021 are higher than the previous year,. Incredibly, this is blamed on the ‘unvaccinated’ who appear to have nothing to do with the situation. If vaccines did anything useful in preventing the spread, the case count would be lower. You need some pretty fancy statistics to report otherwise. Intervention has been done; everything got worse.They tried to blame the unvaccinated and “variants” on the failure of the vaccines, but it doesn’t work that way. I’m pretty sure, based on the statistics from the trial data (everyone interested should read the original study), they never really did much that was useful, but even if they were 100% effective on the first variant and negative effectiveness on omegatron (as appears to be the case, presumably via original antigenic sin). The people calling the shots should have thought of that. That’s why they get to call the shots; they’re supposed to know more than neurotic hippy mamas and Ray Peat fans who have a vastly better track record in this matter. Whether or not you can blame “the variants” for making vaccines useless, the fact remains that they are useless: the mandates and passporting nonsense must stop immediately. People responsible for these mandates and totalitarian measures must be removed from positions of authority for failure, and preferably subjected to Nuremberg style courts for crimes against humanity. And yes, vaccines were supposed to lower the deaths and quash the spread; don’t let them try to do revisionist history here and claim that “vaccines” were supposed to only “reduce the severity.” It is abundantly obvious they didn’t even really do this, at least on a public health scale. Despite everyone declaring victory, US excess deaths look to be about the same in 2022 as they were in 2020 and 2021. More on this later.
Yeah, well, if they don’t work, getting more of something that don’t work isn’t going to work either. It absolutely boggles my mind that the MRNA technology which is a completely silly fucking idea, the one thing it has going for it: you can deploy upgrades almost as easily as iphone upgrades. But they don’t. You’re getting the same shitty and irrelevant 2019 spike protein as was on nature’s menu in 2019. Meanwhile, virums don’t give a fuck, because humanity has never defeated any lung borne ailment.
Well, it doesn’t seem to be as bad as the tinfoil helmet brigade thought it might be: so far anyway. Red deer conspiracizing aside, we know now that the vaccines do cause problems with the circulatory system: particularly with the young. They also cause problems with the nervous system, but it appears the circulatory problems are the worst things so far. While there are numerous studies claiming vaxcucks, even adjusted for demographics live longer than the unvaccinated, there are very troubling indications this is the result of systematic miscategorization of vaccine status. There’s plenty of anecdata at this point as well: soccer players dropping dead and tennis players not feeling well and dropping out is rare enough it makes the news every time it does happen. Seems a lot less rare this year. I think Steve Kirsch is overestimating the dangers of the Covid vaccine, but he’s probably closer to the mark than “the establishment.” BTW, “establishment” types who have their tits in a bunch, please give me your estimates for serious illness or death from these fake-vaccines. Yeah, that’s what I thought: you have no fucking idea.
This one was trumpeted to the skies by the media in hopes of …. I dunno, maybe driving up Pfizer’s stonk price. 50+ coauthors ought to be your first hint there is something wrong with this turd. They didn’t publish the raw data, the second. Looking at the data they did publish, it doesn’t actually say what the headlines or the conclusions said. You can read more about it here if you care, but the whole thing is laughably insane. Of course the fact that every other study on earth came to the opposite conclusion as well as a vague understanding of how immune systems and vaccines work (hint: vaccination mimics natural infection on your immune system by subjecting it to virus parts) were evidence enough this assertion/paper is baloney. Getting covid and recovering is not only is more protective than vaccines at peak vaccine effectiveness, the effectiveness of natural immunity seems to increase over time. There were all manner of assertions along these lines; also that vaccines somehow help people who were already over the illness: they were all wrong.
People actually said this. I assume it was issued (please note original was removed)from the secret lizard narrative command center, then dropped because it didn’t play well in the A/B testing., as they mercifully have stopped saying this.
Your schnozz and other mucus membranes are an important part of your immune system. There are all manner of immune systems in your different mucus membranes, and you can design different vaccines to stimulate immune responses in them. For example, nasal vaccines are broadly protective of the entire upper respiratory tract. When you inject things into your epithelium, you basically get no immune response in your upper respiratory tract. Covid “vaccines” have so far been injected into your epithelium, which is probably helpful if the virus breaks through into your circulatory system, but it doesn’t do much to prevent you from the virus setting up shop in your schnozz and lungs. Roughly speaking; from physics you can understand why the vaccines might prevent death in severe cases, but don’t prevent you from getting the damn thing in the first place. This is probably also why flu vaccines are not particularly effective.
They finally have some treatments in the drug pipeline. They’re claiming results almost as good as the literature on ivermectin, which “the establishment” (aka pharma industry representatives) has been disparaging as “horse paste.” One of them, Merck’s molnupiravir, causes birth defects. Ivermectin doesn’t. ( EDIT ADD: Molnupiravir might be placebo for Merck stockholders.) Remdesivir hilariously still has no evidence for effectiveness (lower than the hydroxychloroquine level of statistical significance) at doing anything but making Gilead’s CEO more wealthy, but is widely prescribed and approved by the FDA. Monoclonal antibodies appear to be effective depending on the varient, and probably should be given out more widely, earlier, just like what Joe Rogan did. Incidentally, while I’m at it ….
The things he says make more sense than any mainstream media or public health authority. He has provided a platform for people who apparently know what they’re talking about, as well as people who don’t, and seems to have come up with a reasonable treatment modality by listening to smart people when they’re right and ignoring retards. Mind you, Joe Rogan smokes DMT and talks to grey machine elves. He is a stand up comic who smokes enough weed to tranquilize elephants and used to have a job making people eat worms and do other stupid human tricks. I’m pretty sure he believes in ancient astronauts and his primary hobby is training to pull people’s arms off. Yet somehow, perhaps by virtue of having high normal testosterone levels, he has more common sense and a bigger audience than the entire media, political, medical establishment of the world’s Hegemon. This is of course absurd and terrifying. We’re lucky to have him, as he seems to be a decent and curious person with a backbone; something almost entirely missing from legacy media figures. Congrats Joe; you deserve it. For those of you who are horrified by this, you could do a lot worse.
Lockdowns did absolutely nothing for disease spread. Vaccine mandates or passports are simply totalitarian theater: we know the vaccines don’t help prevent transmission or getting it, and are somewhat harmful. The worm-like authoritarians calling the shots keep implementing such things presumably do so to make it look like they’re doing something, and because they’re afraid of what will happen to them if they don’t go along with the nonsense. Normal people were denied access to public facilities, including the right to work, for no apparent reason. Some countries have literally made concentration camps, and we’re supposed to be OK with this. There used to be all this mystery around why regular people went along with communist or nazi atrocities. This is not a mystery any longer: we’ve run a real life Milgram experiment and now we know who the baddies are. People advocating for this nonsense are actual totalitarian numskulls living among you who would send you to the extermination chamber because they’re afraid. It’s the real life Banality of Evil; the mask Karen next door who rejoices in the suffering of normal people. Sure some of them you could always tell there was something wrong with them, but an awful lot of it seems to be regular people who happen to be invertebrates, or whose lives are so fucked up and pathetic they enjoy being sadistic to others. The nice thing about the interbutts and databases is it can be conveniently recorded who was naughty and who was nice for future reference.
They count as “the establishment.” At least some of them are evidently insanely stupid. Sotomayor thinks (as of Jan 8 2022) there are 100000 children on ventilators (the actual number is closer to 0), Covid deaths are at an all time high, and Omicron is deadlier than Delta. She also thinks vaccines are safe and effective, but is afraid of being in the same room as one of her colleagues who is also vaccinated but refuses to wear a mask because he’s not a hysterical bullying nitwit. Breyer thinks a vaccine mandate would prevent 100% of US cases, rather than 0% of US cases as turned out to be the actual number. Kagan thinks vaccines and masks stop transmission of covid. I assume this sort of thinking is common among affirmative action beneficiaries, hysterics and victims of the last two years of bullshit, but all of these beliefs are false. I guess it could be worse.
The report can be found here. The claim that it is disinformatsya can be found here. As a result, people couldn’t share something published by the British Journal of Medicine on social media. As far as can be told, because the wrong people took notice of it. I guess we’re supposed to think Pfizer is beyond reproach despite their long history of fraud and paying kickbacks. What this seems to be, is, in fact, news: the type of investigative journalism that would be published everywhere in normal times because pharma companies are mostly crooks who don’t give a shit about your health.
Some of the tinfoil helmet types get very worked up over Klaus Schwab and his cabal of comfortable slacks wearing goons and their ideas for the “great reset.” Aka the same numskulls who fucked up the pandemic and made everyone miserable for the last two years think they need even more power for the next time this happens. While there may be some imbeciles who believe this, there were imbeciles who think you can cure rabies by making tea from the hair of a rabid dog. I think most of us have had enough, and if that lot doesn’t want to end up hanging from the gibbet (which they all probably deserve somehow), they need to, like, take a long vacation. Preferably among normal people rather than their deluded lizard counterparts.
The last half year or so have seen a few of these, basically because you’d have to be an absolute moron to not notice the crap they’re asking us to do doesn’t work. Since nobody is actually taking responsibility for anything, and most of it is mealy mouthed prevarication, rather than groveling admission, they’re all worth noting.
For example, the CDC now admits herd immunity is impossible using the current technologies. Iceland admitted this months earlier and instituted a characteristically humane and decent set of policies as a result. The CDC doesn’t actually admit they should stop doing things that don’t work, or set out any common sense goals we can meet moving forward, but it’s a start.
The CDC also admits that PCR tests are kind of meaningless because they can stay positive 12 weeks after an infection; something that was a conspiracy theory and “disinformation” before, even though it was very obviously true: the man who invented it even said so. Various others have finally noticed high PCR cycles are shitty tests. Oh yeah, the CDC also got caught literally trying to change the cycle threshhold for vaccinated people to make it look like the vaccines were working. That’s sort of an admission about PCR tests that tin helmets had been deplatformed for saying for a year and a half earlier.
It’s OK for people who have covid to treat patients. They still have to be vaccinated for some reason. Actually this isn’t an admission which is at all true, it’s insane, but it’s a sort of admission of failure.
Isolation time is now 5 days instead of 10. Why? Don’t know, nobody’s telling us! Maybe Delta’s CEO bullycided Rachel Levine? The important thing though is the admission that these numbers are nonsense they pull out of their ass.
Yeah, it’s airborne all right. Duh. A 5 year old could have told anyone that in February of 2020.
I mean, how could you not trust the US military? To be fair I have no real way of knowing what’s going on here, or why they made such an outlandish claim. The results are extremely preliminary, consisting of test tube assays. There’s a phase-1 trial including 29 people (control group 5 people), all of whom are under age 55, so they do seem to be setting themselves up for “nobody died” levels of success. Really though, the best signal this is probably baloney or harmful rat poison is the way the cock-holsters in the media regurgitated this press release as if we’re all saved. Using their historical performance in reporting facts, this probably means it doesn’t work and is worse for you than smoking banana peels.
Imagine if you worked at an Antarctic base. Your coworkers were all vaccinated, tested multiple times and quarantined multiple times before arriving; for a total of something like 20 days quarantine. You’d think you are pretty safe from covid right? Well it turns out, no, not so much. That’s just bizarre. It’s also an extremely important case study: vaccines, tests and quarantines do not work, even in the best possible circumstances.
It may be that my instinct to lock up fat people and let everyone else outside was correct. In addition to dropping dead of ‘rona more, the virus actually reproduces in adipose tissue, making them possible super-spreaders. Either way, Joe Rogan’s suggestion of making fatties into normal specimens is a better public health intervention than forcing everyone to take muh “science juice<tm>.”
There is some weird evidence that ‘rona was circulating a long time before people started chimping out about viral videos from China showing numskulls faking like they were sicker than they are to jump the queue to the hospital. For example, Barcelona toilet water had DNA from ‘rona in January, where the first cases were not until February. French and Italian blood samples seem to have ‘rona in them in September of 2019. These were ELISA tests on samples where people had some kind of severe lung problem. If you want to think about something really crazy; something corona-virus looking was spotted in the summer of 2017 …. in crop samples. I have no idea; maybe it’s a coincidence. It sure is weird though. All of this is of course quite remarkable and has terrible implications for our “elites” mitigations.
I looked at two data sets during this pandemic; the early cruise ship data which helped me nail the IFR, and the CDC data on pneumonia deaths. Early on, I decided to discount the pneumonia deaths (which are Corona-chan, Flu, and who knows what else), and just look at deaths. Dead people are, by definition, unpolitical. Labeling them is political. I showed my work in a gist that approximately nobody looked at in my last note on this subject, so I’ll do it a little more explicitly this time. Here is the gist for the updated calculation. Note that this is an incredibly naive analysis and there are all kinds of models you can festoon it with to get more accuracy. I’ll try to note the defects in the calculation as I walk you through it. On the other hand, it is also a useful analysis which provides bounds on what’s going on and how effective the “experts” have been in preventing extra deaths and illness.
Here is a plot of US weekly deaths.
The first thing you should notice is the last couple of weeks of 2022 are not completely counted yet. This is a sort of sample bias pervasive in their data. You can totally understand how it works; it’s work that gets collected on the local level and bureaucratically reported up the pipe as time goes on. The cool thing about the CDC is they actually capture this by reporting the counts at each week, so you can estimate the historical reporting delay and so on. Anyway, we can ignore this effect, since we have plenty of other data. You can download the data sets every week, check them into your local githubs and make sure they’re not changing the world underneath them (I did; I’m paranoid).
You can see from the raw weekly data set that there have been bad flu years in the past, but the rona virums was worse. It’s also not insanely bad compared to total yearly deaths, which, in a normal year is something like 2.8m. My model for how many people should die in a normal year is very simple indeed: it’s the yearly average of all the years before 2019. In this data set, the figure is 2,845,815 expected yearly deaths. You’ll note that in general, annual deaths in the US have a slight upward trend. That’s because Americans are getting older, due to the boomer population bulge. There are ways of compensating for this; I won’t bother, as it’s a second order effect you can fiddle with to try to weigh the scales in favor of whatever you’re arguing for.
So, if you want to know how many extra deaths per year since corona-chan and its associated “expert” health interventions, just take the mean value per year, subtract off your model of expected annual deaths, and that’s the toll we paid. Since we only have data up to the 15th week of 2022, we’ll scale the values by 52/15. Again, the last few weeks are underestimates, but since it’s a timeseries and winter is worse than summer and spring, this will probably be pretty close to the real value.
I’ll just state what the values are since none of you will run the gist:
2020 extra deaths: 500,361
2021 extra deaths: 612,546
2022 (predicted) extra deaths: 561,459
What can we learn from this? Well, for one thing, we learn that despite lots of people in 2021 and 2022 being vaccinated, about the same number of people died. You could argue the pandemic is more endemic in those later years, and 2020 was the most locked down year, but…. the numbers are about the same. You could draw all kinds of wild conclusions from this. One conclusion is inescapable though: the public health interventions, lockdowns, health passports, vaccines as condition of employment, censorship of competing views, all of it is a big, giant failure. The numskull “experts” who imposed the last two years of evil on us failed.
There are all kinds of arguments people make with politicized data, but at the end of the day this is the number people give a shit about. Did more people die, or fewer people die? Well, in 2021 anyway, more people died. The only acceptable answer for these goons is “fewer excess deaths.” You know, like happened in Sweden in 2021. The country that did nothing (they did vaccinate people). Go look for yourself on https://mortality.org
It sure looks like 2022 will be more of the same. As I said the last time, the technocratic managerial state, the main western governmental system since 1945, has failed. Our “expert class” -more or less the same morons who fomented a war in Ukraine earlier this year, have demonstrated themselves to be numskulls at best, sadistic vermin at worst. Wherever they are on this spectrum, they deserve something between the pillory and the gibbet. Though at present, you retards have fallen for it and are already on to the Next Thing.
