The sting: When Donald Trump was interviewed by Sharri Markson they speculated on the origin of the virus. It’s fair to say they both thought it had come from the Wuhan lab. Trump clearly concluded that it was accidental otherwise, as he said, it would have been an act of war.
So far, I believe, we’ve had three possibilities mooted. One is an animal to human transmission, liked by those fond of China for various reasons or who fear retaliation in one form or another. A second is an accidental escape from the lab, favoured it seems to me by an increasing number of people based on the circumstantial evidence. The third is a deliberate leak orchestrated by the CCP, or a faction in the CCP, in order to damage the West.
I plump for the second, but only if forced out of my ‘don’t-know’ comfort zone. Let’s face it, my opinion is worth diddly-squat. Even so, I will mention a fourth possibility, which is perhaps a little conspiratorial for comfort. It’s titled how drug companies make a bonanza.
Suppose you have an untried, experimental, spike-protein vax in the back office with no takers. You need the right transmissible infection. Nothing of great lethality. Nothing of triviality. The right infection happens. A convenient coincidence? Maybe. Sometimes life works out. Everything almost falls into place. There’s a missing link, as it were. And then comes Trump, in all naïve innocence, I believe.
COVID was taking a political toll. Trump needed a vaccine. He put Warp Speed into action. Great cover for the speedy production and distribution of vaccines which normally take five and more years to prove. Enter Trump again and HCQ. Now who got him to promote HCQ? That queered the pitch for therapeutics.
Vaccines could not have been given emergency authorisation if effective therapeutics were in use. Therapeutics had to be driven out of the medical marketplace. And associating them with Trump did the trick.
If you think this is a stretch, how in the world have we got to a point where people are being persecuted (including being robbed of their livelihoods) for refusing to take a ‘vaccine’ to combat a disease of very limited lethality; which, in any event, doesn’t prevent you getting the disease or passing it on; whose effectiveness quickly wanes; and whose long-term effects are, by definition, unknown. And, worse, and morally repugnant, where very young children, at no risk from the disease, are now being lined up, as though guinea pigs, to take the jab.
Sure, useful idiots predominate. But I, for one, am not ruling out sinister players. Cui Bono.
Death stalked the land in 2020 as COVID wreaked havoc with our medical infrastructure. Bring out your bodies heralded each morn. Not quite.
In fact, the ABS reports that deaths in in 2020 at 161,300 were fewer than in 2019 at 169,301. The 20 leading causes are listed. COVID didn’t make the cut, but was given special mention as the 38th. It reportedly caused 898 deaths with a median age of 86.9 years compared with 81.7 years for deaths as a whole. Sad though most deaths are for families and friends, how can those dying in their mid-eighties be described by the Prime Minister as each a “terrible tragedy,” without losing all sensible perspective and running out of superlatives fit for purpose.
Let me mention the 3,144 women who died in 2020 of breast cancer, with a median age of 72 years. The 2,186 people who died of melanoma, with a median age of 64.7 years. The 16,587 who died of heart disease, with a median age of 84.7 years. The 3,139 who committed suicide, with a median age of only 43.5 years. Children also died in 2020; each properly described as a terrible tragedy.
By the way, make of it what you will. Set against COVID deaths of 898, influenza -pneumonia deaths in 2020 were down 1,837 on their level in 2019 (admittedly a high year). But they were also down 815 on their level in 2018 (not a high year). Net-zero COVID/ Flu deaths perhaps?
The risk of dying from COVID is small, vanishingly small if you are neither old nor have serious underlying illnesses. That of course doesn’t fit the agenda. You can’t scare people witless and force novel so-called vaccines on them by telling the truth.
You have to invent a different truth built on modelling hyperbole, misinformation and secret public health advice. Then you can mask them, isolate them, prevent them having access to cheap therapeutic medicine, and then, finally, vaccinate them and their children. And boosters are dessert. Money rolls in.
