Fact or fiction?
CovidGate And The Folly Of Lockdown Nation
By David Stockman
April 17, 2020 "Information
Clearing House" - We are
getting sick and tired of the CNN/Cuomo Brothers
inquisition and the Coviddeath Cavalcade. Their
relentless, morose, partisan coverage of the
coronavirus pandemic is the single greatest campaign
of misinformation, disinformation, propaganda,
scaremongering and elitist prattle we can recall in
our entire lifetime.
Indeed, Joe McCarthy’s Red Scare was a Sunday School
picnic compared to CovidGate. And just as there were
no commies secretly subverting America 66 years ago,
there is no deathly contagion stalking the American
people today and no public health emergency that
remotely justifies the Lockdown Nation regime that
the CNN/Cuomo Brothers and infectious disease lobby
have foisted on the country with virtually no public
debate or democratic accountability.
By every measure, New York is the aberrant epicenter
of the Covid-19 outbreak. So what you find in the
New York stats has got to be definitive, but what
they’re conclusive about is the very opposite of the
hysteria being propagated by the Cuomos & friends.
The New York data, in fact, show that Covid-19
almost pinpointedly attacks the old, the frail, and
the medically vulnerable, not the general
In turn, that means that public health measures
should be focused on identifying, isolating,
protecting, treating and supporting the very small
sub-population that is bearing the brunt of the
illness and deaths, while allowing the vast bulk of
the population to get back to normal social and
economic life forthwith.
As we document below, the peak of new cases and
deaths is now in the rear-view mirror. So what we
can glean from the New York stats through April 13th
reporting is definitive and will only get even more
definitive in the weeks ahead.
As of 1PM today, the nationwide death count “WITH”
Covid-19 was 23,529. And we go full monte with CAPs,
quotes, bolds and italics for the reason that it is
self-evident the virus per se didn’t kill
many or most of these people: It triggered organ and
function failures that were already embedded in
pre-existing morbidities. And that truth is
validated in spades by the New York data. As of this
afternoon, New York had reported 10,834 corona
deaths or 45% of the national total.
But when you look at the break-out by age categories
and rates relative to population, the numbers are
· Under 50 years: 642 deaths or
4.9 per 100,000;
· 50-69 years: 3,174 deaths or 65 per 100,00;
· 70-79 years: 2,888 deaths or 272 per 100,000;
· 80 years+: 4,130 deaths or 1,086 per 100,000.
In short, 18% of all the Covid-19
nationwide deaths crawling across the CNN screen
today have been among New Yorkers 80 years and
older; and 7,018 or 30% of national deaths and 65%
of New York Covid-19 deaths have been among those 70
years and older.
