Looks Like Trump Was Right About
The Coronavirus Fatality Rate

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 4/24/2020 4:58:05 PM

In early March, President Donald Trump was lambasted for saying on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show that he had a hunch the coronavirus fatality rate, which the World Health Organization pegged then at 3 to 4 percent, was in fact much lower, under 1 percent. Many commentators, myself included pointed out that the beginning of a pandemic medical crisis was not the time to be floating hunches. But, as we always knew was possible, it looks now like the president might well have been right. New data from random antibody tests conducted in New York State suggest that as many as 2.7 million people statewide have had the coronavirus.

15,000 deaths. About .5%…Looks as though PDJT got it right again…..

I will wait until my dying day for the Mainstream Demomedia to acknowledge this. I told my liberal-minded daughter this two months ago and she said I was crazy. I can print articles like this and leave them on her dresser.

Death rate = Number of deaths divided by number of COVID-19 sufferers. Garbage in ---> model (manipulation of numbers and assumptions) ==> Garbage out. Remember a model is made up of only numbers and operands like (+,-,/,square root,powers,mean,mode,etc. and arbitrary variables or factors). Number of deaths is probably a good or close to good number as corpses are hard to hide. Number of COVID-19 patients is very unreliable due to minimal testing plus a guess at the number of uncounted and asymptomatic occurrences. Model specifics and the authors haven't been revealed "for safety of modelers". Then Garbage out is derived from maybe a 90% reliable number being mathematically masticated in a model into a completely unreliable number from which unsophisticated minds decide that we shut down the economy. Why does the economy have to be shut down other than because President Trump orchestrated the path to a booming healthy economy? This can not be allowed to continue according to the main stream media and the Washington elite. The answer is to vote Republican across the bard in November.

Hey MSM dripsh_ts, just start a headline with, 'Looks Like Trump Was Right About _______,' every other day and you can't go wrong. Do that and you might even get a significant number of people to read your worthless papers and watch your insufferably boring news hours.

The democrats have figured out that the hysterical death rate forecasted is a dud now, so they have moved on to the ''firing'' of a bureaucrat that President Trump never heard of. Poor, pitiful democrats. A life of anger and sadness...

Remember that the doctors and hospitals have been instructed by federal medical authorities to list Covid-19 as the cause of death if the cause "could" have been from Covid-19. So with a positive test or - “if the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty.” - without a test the diagnosis is supposed to be Covid-19. Even if a co-morbidity could have been the actual cause. This is likely to significantly inflate the number of Covid-19 deaths. Additionally, if a person without insurance dies of Covid-19 the hospital gets a fairly large payment from the federal government and if they had insurance the hospital gets a 20% bonus over usual rates. Another reason to diagnosis Covid-19 if possible.

16 Reasons Why I Believe Joe Biden
Sexually Assaulted Tara Reade

Primarily because I incorrectly believed her story had changed over the course of a year, had moved from unwanted touching to a flat-out sexual assault, I at first had trouble believing Tara Reade’s claim she was sexually assaulted by presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden in 1993. When Reade originally came forward in April of 2019, she joined about a half-dozen women who have credibly accused Biden of unwanted touching. And I say “credibly” because Biden has serially committed acts of unwanted touching in public. (Snip) Now, however, Reade tells a much more lurid and disturbing story of being sexually assaulted by Biden. While working for the then-Delaware Senator while in

After weeks of taking endless and often irrelevant questions daily from a hostile press, President Donald John Trump took none at Friday's briefing on corona virus. Wolf Blitzer of AT&T's Cosmic Nonsense Network called the president chicken for not indulging a self-important press with a moment to pretend they are as important as the president. La dee dah. His network airs the least amount of these daily briefings among the 3 major cable news channels. It is pretty difficult to make the case that you are interested in informing the public when you don't show the press briefings.

Is North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dead? Is he in a critical condition? Here's why I believe the answer to both questions is no. First off, at least as of this writing, the U.S. intelligence community, the U.S. military, and their counterpart services in South Korea have no credible evidence of Kim's death or serious ill-health. That matters because the United States has a very robust and wide-ranging intelligence effort to monitor Kim's situation and those of his inner circle at all times. (Snip) What of the news reports suggesting otherwise, you ask? Well, those rumors online are being circulated by unreliable sources. And then being recirculated by more reliable sources.

A Washington Examiner report on a recent expansion of John Durham’s team, to include U.S. Attorney Anthony Scarpelli, may reconcile recent earlier reports by John Solomon of “clear evidence” showing Durham is narrowing in on some key DOJ and FBI figures. According to the Examiner Scarpelli was brought over in part based on his work on Violent Crimes and the Narcotics Trafficking Section of the DOJ. In that capacity Anthony Scarpelli would hold a Top Secret/SCI clearance (he does); which becomes a valuable necessity for the specifics of the type of investigation ongoing.

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded bat-coronavirus research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China to the tune of US$3.7 million, a recent article in the British newspaper Daily Mail revealed. Back in October 2014, the US government had placed a federal moratorium on gain-of-function (GOF) research – altering natural pathogens to make them more deadly and infectious – as a result of rising fears about a possible pandemic caused by an accidental or deliberate release of these genetically engineered monster germs.(Snip) Dr Anthony Fauci(Snip) outsourced in 2015 the GOF research to China’s Wuhan lab and licensed the lab to continue receiving US government funding.

We all deserve protection from the coronavirus, which is now our nation’s second-leading cause of death. To get it, we must cooperate and make sacrifices. Our culture has a wonderful way of taking controversial or partisan figures and weaving them into the broader story of America. When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, for example, his secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, purportedly said, “Now he belongs to the ages,” which was a way of saying that the battles Lincoln fought and the leadership he provided would stay with us and shape the nation going forward.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is pitching herself as a potential running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden. Though Abrams has benefited from fawning media praise, selecting her would come with its downsides for Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Here are five reasons why Abrams would be a risky choice. Abrams has never been elected to an office higher than Georgia state representative, serving as minority leader in the state legislature — and she doesn’t even hold that office at the current moment.

When you think of it, it's nothing short of incredible that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. One might have thought 2016 would have been Biden's year (if he was ever going to have a time at bat), since Barack Obama's two-term presidency had just ended, and most vice presidents who try for the top spot do so immediately following their bosses' departures. But, as is often the case in politics these days, party nominees can result from when the party decides it's someone's "turn." That was the case the last go-around: the Democrats decided that it was Hillary's turn,

Washington—President Donald Trump said Friday that he won’t approve a $10 billion loan for the U.S. Postal Service unless the agency raises charges for Amazon and other big shippers to four to five times current rates. “The Postal Service is a joke because they’re handing out packages for Amazon and other internet companies and every time they bring a package, they lose money on it,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. The president was responding to a question about reports his administration plans to force major changes in postal operations as the price for approving a $10 billion loan that was included in the government’s $2 trillion economic rescue package.
