COVID cases are on the rise, or so we are told daily by a hysterical media. Newspaper headlines scream panic as this recent USAToday article proclaimed, “COVID-19 cases rising in 39 states – 9 months into the pandemic: We are overwhelmed.” It’s the American people that are overwhelmed. Nine months into masks and lockdowns, with a presidential election just weeks away, facing a daily barrage of doom and gloom from the media. Are cases really on the rise or are these simply positive tests? The above article, one of many warns, “A startling nine states setting ominous, seven-day records for infections.” 39 states reported

It's an ill wind that doesn't blow fortune to someone. In this case, covid has been the answer to the Democrat's prayers.

At my hospital we test covid patients every day until they are negative, so they may have 10 positive tests. EACH TEST is submitted to the state as a positive result. That has to stop!

When number totals are added continuously from the beginning, every single new case adds one more to the total for a 'NEW RECORD'. Yes, it is part of MSM lying to get Harris elected president. Honest reporting would look at PER DAY numbers which are only marginally higher than six weeks ago.

#1.. Yup. Tiny hospital with average census of 20. We have a robust outpatient surgery program. But really small hospital over all. We test for Covid in our town every 15 min/8 hours a day/7 days a week. That’s a lot of testing. Now multiply that by however many HUGE facilities are testing every day throughout the country. Now add the fact that the year is coming to close and deductibles will renew to 0 in January. Everyone is scrambling to get their knees/shoulder/hips replaced. Health care is a cabal. It’s driving this testing. And they’re making money on every single test that’s run.

Between false positives, multiple testing of patients, and analyses extending out beyond 33-34 steps, and a symptomatic tests, I have no faith in the reported data, but rejoice that it may well be showing a growing herd immunity. In my county, deaths with covid have shrunk to de minimus levels, and it appears nationally that our current death rates (total) are lower than last year

The measurement is so biased the data is virtually meaningless. Cases is meaningless, more testing = more cases holding everything else constant. The fact that we are on a pace to have a very normal total death rate in the US, even lower that some recent years, is quite telling.

Anytime there is a new segment of the population being tested ie. Colleges and Universities we've seen an increase in cases, but hospitalizations are down and deaths way down. I suggest you use the word "cure" (the new dem trigger word) when discussing with friends and family. The Trump and staff, including Chris Christie (with several underlying conditions) have all recovered after receiving the "cure".

This may sound morbid,but what we need to be looking for is "excess hospitalizations" / "excess deaths". This is the kind of data actuaries look at to determine things such as life insurance rates. The Medical Examiner in one of our more populous counties wrote an open letter decrying the fear, uncertainty, doubt and panic being sown by politicians and the media. Not to mention that every hospitalization or death classified as cv19 means more money to the hospital and state. Thus there is a perverse incentive to inflate numbers. If we find excess deaths or hospitalizations, we need to push to see that the causes are correctly and honestly reported. Was it due to cv19 or was it something else, because with healthcare facilities locked down, many people either could not or were too afraid to get the on-going medical treatment they required.

Well, of COURSE it's fake news. You can't believe any of the numbers they're throwing out. One of my wife's friends told us about 2 of her friends in Florida, who decided to get tested for coronavirus. They went to the testing center and filled out all the forms, handed them in, and got in line for testing. After about 30 minutes they decided not to wait any longer, and left without getting tested. The next week, they both got their "test results" in the mail - and they both tested positive. We're being played.

Here's an interesting experiment some of you may want to replicate. I took a red Sharpie and made several not large but noticeable red spots on the outside of my face diaper. The only time I wear the fool ting is at the grocery store up until I have paid and the food belongs to me. In 18 days now nobody staff managers security or other customers has even mentioned the apparent blood spots on my mask. If they do I intend to ask them what sterilization procedures they use on their masks.

There is no way you can tell me so many tested positive, including people who registered, got tired of waiting and left, but received a letter they tested positive. People should be dropping like flies. Somebody can correct me, but it's my understanding hospitals are getting money for positive patients.

It was recently reported that Patrissa Cullors, a founding woman of Black Lives Matter, was signed by Warner Brothers to a multiyear deal across all of its programming platforms that “encompasses scripted and unscripted series, longform series, animated and kids programming, as well as digital content.” In a statement released by Cullors after the signing, she mentioned that a reason for celebration is that “Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling.” Historically, yes. Contemporarily, no. (This begs the question: Why are most examples of oppression from the past?)

Who’s up for yet another story about the indoctrination of our youth in the nation’s public schools? This tale comes to us from O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and while still disturbing, it at least has something of a happy ending. 12-year-old Jackson Cody is a typical 7th grader who attends this school and his class is somehow being allowed to attend school in person. Recently, after the first presidential debate, one of Jackson’s teachers scheduled a classroom exercise where the students would discuss the debate and what they thought of it. That’s when things took a turn for the worse. Jackson made the “mistake” of saying that he

It was another one of those Jussie Smollett-like "hate crimes" that sounded perfectly made up to any well-adjusted person, which probably explains why liberals fell for it, hook, line, and sinker.

On the 197th day of “15 days to slow the spread,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom (Democrat, of course) has moved the reopening goalposts yet again. Originally counties had to meet metrics aimed at ensuring adequate rates of testing and the availability of hospital/ICU beds/ventilators. (Contact tracing was supposed to be a part of that, but that effort’s been a big fat joke). Once hospitalization rates, ventilator usage, and death rates plummeted over the summer Newsom changed his strategy and enacted by gubernatorial fiat a tiered system that completely ignored those metrics and instead focused on daily new cases and positivity rate.

The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to say, Mrs. Barrett is at least as qualified for the bench as was Mrs. Ginsburg. Ginsburg was confirmed 96-3 in just 50 days.

During Thursday’s final debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R.

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that election officials must accept mail-in ballots even if the signatures on them don’t match those on file for a voter. The justices said nothing in the state’s laws required signatures to be verified, so if election officials are satisfied with the vote save for the signature, they cannot reject it.(Snip) President Trump’s campaign had challenged the state over the issue. Signature matching is considered a key check in many states that run elections through the mail, and election officials are trained in how to spot matches and to question signatures that don’t appear to match.

He was referring to an abandoned laptop that contained emails suggesting that Joe Biden had, in fact, met with Hunter Biden’s foreign business partners, contrary to what the former vice president has claimed.The emails also suggested that the Biden family had pursued a business venture with a Chinese company — a claim corroborated before the debate by former partner Tony Bobulinski.
