CDC director says US may see 'precipitous
decline' in omicron cases like South Africa

Original Article

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday there is a good chance that the U.S. will follow the "ice-pick"-shaped curve of South Africa's omicron surge of the COVID variant, but cautioned that it could roll through different parts of the country at various times, as previous waves have. "I do think in places that we are seeing this really steep incline, that we may well see also a precipitous decline, but we're also a much bigger country than South Africa," Walensky said in a briefing with reporters.


And the size of the country matters because? Wild-eyed Rochelle is as dumb as a post. Peter Principle. Listen to her, read her language. Gibberish. But it’s clear that she is the advance party sent out to dig Zhou & Co out of the Omicron panic hole they’ve been digging...

And does this CDC person, who has lied to us so often, see this as a bad thing? Are they going to cry if we don't have enough fear?

So a "precipitous decline" still justifies a nationwide mandate for vaccinations, and extreme penalties (loss of job, no entry to restaurants, travel ban, etc.) EXACTLY WHY???

This will never do. You are going to need to trot out the next variant pretty quickly in order to keep the fear ramped up, the schools closed, and keep your thumbs down on America. It's a long time until November, and mail-in ballots are key to rigging the elections.

The disappearance of the flu in 2020 is an indication that the testing identifies corona viruses but doesn't discriminate amongst them. I would think the only way to positively ID any variant would be using microscopy and there is no way there is time nor money to do that with every test. Ergo - everything is C19

The virology and epidemiology community have labeled this a "White Hat" virus for the old cowboy movies where the good guys wore white. A normal virus like influenza mutate 2-3% to become less virulent. This they claim is different in that it is missing fragments and have other attachments more benign, like a cold. Did a lab save us from the Chinese and our tyrants?

I just love this sentence. Public health messaging is hard? It's just like any other authentic messaging.....Gather your independent facts, ensure their veracity and TELL THE TRUTH. And that is where the problem occurs with this beady eyed incompetent and the FJB administration telling the truth.

Like Fauci, she also claimed heterosexual sex could give you AIDS --- despite world-wide stats proving it was impossible. Don't worry, though. This decrease in flu cases is a minor setback. There are still 11 Greek letters left for more "variants" to hit us between now and the 2022 elections. BTW --- if you can stand on line for hours waiting for a false positive COVID test & also show an I.D. then you can stand in line to vote!

The Washington State Board of Health may soon amend state law to authorize the involuntary detainment of residents as young as 5 years old in Covid-19 “internment camps” for failing to comply with the state’s experimental vaccine mandate. WAC 246-100-040, a proposed revision to include Covid protocol under the state’s Communicable and Certain Other Diseases act, outlines “Procedures for isolation or quarantine.” The measure would allow local health officers “at his or her sole discretion” to “issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.”

Space is the ultimate strategic high ground. This domain is divided into various zones. First there are the orbits around the Earth: low-Earth orbit, medium-Earth orbit, and geosynchronous orbit. Ancillary to those orbits are the Lagrange points, which are the orbits separating the Earth from its moon. Next up is the Earth-Moon system. If you control the orbits around the Earth and the Lagrange points—as well as the moon itself—you effectively have total dominance over the Earth below. Today, China is poised to dominate not just the orbits around the Earth, but the entire Earth-Moon system. The Americans, despite having won the original space race with the Soviet Union, have

In 2021, CNN’s weekday prime-time viewership dropped 38%. Fox News Channel was down 34%. MSNBC dropped 25%. This no doubt helps to explain why unpopular hosts like Chris Wallace at Fox News and Joy Reid at MSNBC are being removed from their slots.The old broadcast television evening newscasts also declined: ABC’s “World News Tonight” was down 12%. CBS “Evening News” was also down 12%. NBC’s “Nightly News” declined 14%.As for legacy print media, the losses were equally staggering:The Washington Post had a 44% decline

When it comes to the treatment of COVID-19, many Western nations have been hobbled by the politicization of medicine. Throughout 2020, media and many public health experts warned against the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), despite the fact that many practicing doctors were praising its ability to save patients. Most have been silenced through online censorship. Some even lost their jobs for the “sin” of publicly sharing their successes with the drug. Another decades-old antiparasitic drug that may be even more useful than HCQ is ivermectin. Like HCQ, ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential drugs, but its benefits are also being ignored by public health officials and buried

Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist and immunologist who has contributed significantly to the technology of mRNA vaccines, issued a strong caution for those who seek to have their children vaccinated against COVID-19. “Think twice before you vaccinate your kids. Because if something bad happens, you can’t go back and say, ‘whoops, I want a do-over,'” (Snip) serious adverse events can occur and can be “so severe that it puts your child in the hospital.”Malone noted that with regard to myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, “there’s a good chance that if your child takes the vaccine, they won’t be damaged, they won’t show clinical symptoms—[but] they may have subclinical damage.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reported a 1,066 percent increase in fentanyl seized in south Texas ports during fiscal year 2021. Border agents at eight ports of entry extending from Brownsville to Del Rio said that between Oct. 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2021, they seized 87,652 pounds of narcotics that would have commanded a combined estimated street value of $786 million, CBP reported on Jan. 5. Of this, 41,713 pounds was marijuana, 8,592 pounds was cocaine, 33,777 pounds was methamphetamine, 1,215 pounds was heroin, and 588 pounds was fentanyl.

The DOJ’s revelation came Jan. 6 in a response to a motion from the defendants to admit as evidence 258 statements they believe will prove the FBI entrapped them. The statements that the defendants want to have admitted as evidence include audio recordings, where an FBI informant “Steve” is allegedly heard making statements about how to plan and execute the kidnapping of Whitmer.

Most people look at the choice of Kamala Harris for Vice President and scratch their head. “Why would anyone pick a person so wildly devoid of political talent or even the basics of likability?” they wonder. The conventional wisdom is that she checked the right number of boxes to fulfill left-wing interest group demands, which is partially true, of course. Overlooked, however, is how there is one more, rather good and important reason Joe Biden, or really any politician, would pick someone like Harris: because by comparison, you’ll always look better. Harris is such a singularly grating personality that she polls lower than lemon juice on an open wound.

Hospitalizations of U.S. children under 5 with COVID-19 soared in recent weeks to their highest level since the pandemic began, according to government data released Friday on the only age group not yet eligible for the vaccine. The worrisome trend in children too young to be vaccinated underscores the need for older kids and adults to get their shots to help protect those around them, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since mid-December, with the highly contagious omicron variant spreading furiously around the country, the hospitalization rate in these youngest kids has surged to more than 4 in 100,000 children, up from 2.5 per 100,000.
