Vid: ‘Sudden drop' in post-election cases explained by timely change to virus guidelines

Sky News host Rowan Dean says he always predicted once Joe Biden was safely ensconced in the White House the US would see a "sudden drop" in the pandemic panic.

#1  A few weeks ago I post that Wuhan Flu Season #2 Mortality Rate numbers had peaked in the USA on or about Dec. 12th, 2020. The CDC has since updated its data to show Dec. 26th, 2020 now.

12/26/2020 Week ending date in which the death occurred .

All Deaths involving COVID-19 ----> 20,902

Deaths from All Causes 75,570

Deaths involving COVID-19 and Pneumonia 10,345

All Deaths involving Influenza JUST 25?

It seems the C-19 is a cure for Death by Flu.
Given 2017-2018 FLU season deaths ran over 80,000 and the average is about 45,000 per season.

To me the data shows the Wuhan Flu following a typical Flu Season cycle. Oct/Nov to April/May. Season #1 peaked April 18th, 2020. Season #2 seems so far to have peaked in December 26th, 2020.

I feel the early Peak is a mixture of now knowing some REAL FACTS vs. the CDC/MEDIA/POLITICALLY driven PANIC of Season #1, plus better sanitary practices and Herd Immunity. The VAX could not have played a Major role as it was just starting to roll out on Dec. 20th, 2020 and the immunization effect takes a few days to be active.

#2  Yes, the cases are trending lower, but the deaths are not.

64,905 deaths since Biden's inauguration (thru Feb 7)

122,620 since Jan 1.

Put that in your pipe, media slugs, and smoke it.

#5  could some of those so called covid deaths be from the flu?
the criteria used for attributing deaths to covid were notoriously lax; cases involving murders and auto accidents were included. also deaths from typical covid causes like pneumonia were attributed to covid even without any testing.
this was in part because hospitals received monetary support for reporting covid deaths, but not for reporting flu deaths.
Its too bad that we can no longer believe anything we are told but do not see with our own eyes.

#6  the immunization effect takes a few days to be active.

I’m seeing the claim that the immunization effect of the first jab is something like 60%, and three weeks after the second jab it reaches the full 95%. Do I understand correctly?

60% effect is still going to lower infection rates and severity of infection for those who do catch it

#7  They want the vaccinated to continue wearing masks. How much confidence does that inspire?

#8  So how long in time will the vaccine be effective ?
Think that is the question.

#9  Forgotten upon a credenza
Amidst the frenetic cadenza,
One photo -- no name --
In a nondescript frame
Of our toothless old foe, influenza.

Democratic Congressman retracts claim Israel ‘burning down Palestinian villages’
[IsraelTimes] A Democratic Congressman accused Israel of "burning down Paleostinian villages" on Friday, later walking back that comment and indicating that he was "referring to Israeli settlers who have burned Paleostinian orchards" and the Israeli military "which has demolished or bulldozed [Palestninian] villages."

Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) asserted in an interview on Friday with MSNBC that US President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Candidate for president in 2020. Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
would "radically reset" American ties with Israel and hold the latter more to account for its human rights

#4  Conservapedia: Ro Khanna is the Democratic party representative from California's 17th Congressional District in the U.S. House. Khanna was elected to the office 2016. California's 17th Congressional District is located in Silicon Valley. Khanna, the quintessential Marxist elite technocrat, was endorsed by the far-left Justice Democrats. Khanna is a former U.S. Department of Commerce Deputy Secretary.

#5  So do his chi com masters hate Israel too?

They trade with Israel and buy Israeli companies as often as permitted, Woodrow — I think it was President Trump who insisted Israel back out of a deal to let China manage the Haifa docks, and there were not long ago discussions about China building a highway connecting the docks to [possibly Jordan and Egypt?] and making Israel the shipping hub for the Middle East. Some Chinese, like some South Koreans, study the Talmud to absorb whatever ineffable thing it is that makes Jews so successful.

On the other hand, after an ancient, forgotten community of Chinese Jews was rediscovered by the outside world a few years ago, the Chinese government first publicized them — presumably to generate tourist income — but now are persecuting them, possibly following the pattern of persecuting anything outside the State that put the Falun Gong and the Uighurs in the target zone. But there is no Jew hate as such.

Were You Wondering Where All Those Illegals At The Border Were Going To End Up
[Breitbart via Lucianne] U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order Thursday that denies state and local governments any authority to reject the drop-off of refugees into their towns and communities.

In essence, former President Donald Trump’s policy (Executive Order 13888 of September 2019) gave state and local governments a say in whether they have the capacity to provide refugees a pathway to become self-sufficient and successfully integrate into American society.

#2  Unobserved. In late 2020 perhaps the largest shipments of drugs ever captured occurred in Paraguay. It was said to have had a value of $500 million. Drugs were packed in charcoal and were being shipped, hold on, to Israel.
