scenes 7:06 - re the YTube vid. We notice the complete dodge of the question. He basically refused to answer, which makes the topic of the question even more chilling.

Dr John Campbell, is a Brit, who has made numerous videos on his interpretations of this Wuhan virus tournament, from its beginning. He commented on the GBD (Great Barrington...) on 10/8 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lSmSWx6kjA.

He is guarded on accepting all of the recommendations in GBD. A main objection is the lack of references on the GBD website to support their talking points. The signatories may well have published papers, but it would have been better had they pointed to a list of references.

There are uncertainties with the future of the virus, and of its effects on those who get it and recover. But the one thing of which I am certain, many politicians have been super-quick to acquire the crown of despot. Possibly they intend to be the winners in this tournament. But on the bright side, maybe they'll let me clean the stables.

Efox 801am - Yes, they've published and spoken a lot on the C19 response topic, and I guess it was a trade-off between making their declaration short and readable, and going into another well-documented harangue on why our response policies are dumb.

"many politicians have been super-quick to acquire the crown of despot."

Amen Brotha.

Luckily, the modern US Left has a two-step plan:

. Have the government acquire more power via fiat and finance.
. Acquire the government.

It might be considered Communism except that they have no intention of providing useful work to anyone. There needs to be a good term for Communism minus Labor that isn't simply 'Authoritarianism', which is too broad a concept.

The current Blue Mob tool set simply leads you down the road of society constructed as a large version of a private prison, complete with guards, owners, staff, and (mostly) inmates who don't dare sit at the wrong table in the cafeteria. If you're an owner, the details really don't matter.

The latest from the WHO - it looks like a lot more people have or have had the Woo-Hoo virus. Remember - it's all settled science!

This year to date: way more kids have died from the flu than because of C-19. Tell me why we are closing down schools. Because of the flu?

I was thinking about the weaponization of medicine this afternoon.

Two articles:

"In this double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial that included 132 participants and was terminated early, there was not a significant difference in reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction–confirmed SARS-CoV-2 incidence between hydroxychloroquine and placebo cohorts."
https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/2771265


"Early treatment with HCQ on the first day of admission is associated with a reduced risk of 53% in transfer to the ICU for mechanical ventilation."
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1201971220321755

Guess which paper is directly or indirectly referenced in 100's of MSM news articles. If you guess the one that sez hydroxychloroquine is ineffective, you'd be right. It isn't that they care one whit about the subtleties in the matter, it's just another front in the holy war against Trump.

We even have our own Sgt. Schultz from this war regularly showing up on George's page, so it's not like there's anything new here.

George Rebane

Has anyone asked our Board of Supervisors what their knowledge about the above is and what inputs they are using to make C19 response policy for the county? I am also guilty, but I did send the link to this post to Sup Dan Miller and CEO Alison Lehman.

Dr.Rebane @ 9:44 am in response to E. Fox, extraordinaire

“and I guess it was a trade-off between making their declaration short and readable, and going into another well-documented harangue on why our response policies are dumb.”

Yep. It does appear to be an exercise in fritillary. Don’t fit on a bumper sticker. The blind blindly following ‘science’ . Science worshippers. The Holy Grail. Don’t dis the Scared Cow. The science is settled, you flat Earthers. Whew, glad I got that off my chest. Bra was too tight.

Suffer me the indulgence to waste my time and post ‘science’.

‘No Outbreak at Disney World Three Months After Reopening’

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/no-outbreak-at-disney-world-three-months-after-reopening/

Disneyland still closed near the Big A, 28,000 people got pink slips. Or was that 30+ thousand?

The silver lining to all this is this very morning I went to small town, USA. A gentleman was wearing mask that made me smile. It was a larger style in patriotic colors that read boldly, “This mask is as worthless as our government”.
Now, Dr.Rebane, there is your bumper sticker slogan on this complex topic of science co-mingling with politics (and policy). Always A silver lining, even in the contamination of science.

lol. This figures.

"WATCH: Dr David Nabarro, the WHO's Special Envoy on Covid-19, tells Andrew Neil: 'We really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method'. Watch the full interview here: "

I did like the first paragraph from the City Journal article:

"Public health authorities in California have unveiled a “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” that requires counties to meet new “health equity metrics” in order to emerge from the current Covid-19 lockdowns. It’s a broad experiment in social justice. Under the plan, counties must reduce “disparities in levels of transmission” in “low-income, Black, Latino, [and] Pacific Islander” communities before they can move forward with reopening. In effect, local businesses must remain closed until local bureaucrats are satisfied that ill-defined racial quotas have been met."

So basically the .gov holds everyone's economic life hostage until some sort of equity thing happens. Said equity thing is whatever you want it to be.

They really have lost their minds

George Rebane

scenes 923am - "...lost their minds."? Another interpretation is that their taste of power during this pandemic has brought out the true intents of their evil plans for America. I think it behooves the rest of us to react to such diktats as if they are meticulously planned. See also my latest 'Ruminations'.

re the latest from the WHO - apparently they realized that not being productive leads to poverty.
Gee - what happened to the leftys shrieking about "dollars over lives"?
and the ever famous - "I follow science"?
And now they'll claim they were correct all along.

re D 842am - Here is the latest in the growing set of Exhibits A demonstrating that progressives are totally inured from anything, no matter how obvious or available, which contradicts their party's narrative.
