Unedited project Veritas footage showing real-life problems are censored by the "mainstream" media. Ridiculous Borat films are played up... as long as conservatives are on the receiving end. Go figure.

You can’t comment because it’s a self-evident truth:

Neither Trump nor his sycophants give a fig about public health

Mind-reading is not "self-evident truth".

The above are the headlines in Japan Today, highlighting the return of violence and turbulence in the respective countries again after a relatively quiet year.

The troubles in these place have been ongoing. Just because the media choose not to report on them, does not mean the year was "quiet".

The non-news about the Borat prank with Guilliani is all over the bubble news, but how many of the bubble media consumers have even heard the name Bobulinski? That news is completely blanked out in the bubble.

Perfect demonstration of political meddling by the "mainstream media".

People spreading such disinformation are the reason some places have a runaway spread of this virus. Listening to them or believeing them leaves everyone vulnerable. This is much more deadly than the Flu.

Current best estimate for infection fatality rate, as per CDC:

0-19 years: 0.00003 = survival rate 99.9997%

20-49 years: 0.0002 = survival rate 99.98%

50-69 years: 0.005 = survival rate 99.5%

70+ years: 0.054 = survival rate 94.6%

How "much more" deadly than the flue is this, exactly? Do you have data?

This is classed as a "pandemic" by all the experts for a very good reason.

Classing something as a "pandemic" does not mean fascist population control.

Those spreading conspiracy theories should be taken with a grain of salt. The lock downs and other precautions are required to save lives. Simple as that.

No, not as simple as that. The lockdowns come at a cost, including a cost human lifes, which can easily exceed that of the virus.

Advocating for no masks, no lock downs or other precautions is beyond irresponsible it is idiotic.

This is not a black-or-white issue. You can recommend some sensible measures without the Victorian overreach.

[quote]Quote exactly what it says and what you posted.[/quote]

Check yourself. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html , table 1. You are welcome.

[quote]You are aware that fatality rates differ by country, aren’t you? Please tell me you know this. Keep it relevant and accurate.[/quote]

Not only by country, but also by area. In this case case, the CDC figures are based on USA figures, which are a slightly higher than France. So for France, you might want to lower them even more.

[quote]Why are deaths increasing in France? The figures from France show a large increase in deaths per day alongside a large increase in infections.[/quote]

How do you define “large”? Keep it relevant and accurate. What I see is a slight increase in daily deaths, nothing remotely like the spike in March/April. And nothing to justify sensationalist headlines.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/france/

[quote]After you’ve dealt with this, please post the figures which show what must be a huge increase in testing in France.[/quote]

You can only talk about “cases” if you have testing. If you test more, you find more “cases”, if you test less, you find fewer “cases”. Simple fact.

[quote]Otherwise, again you come across as someone whose sense of honesty has been horribly mutilated by political bias and a pathology for conspiracy theories.[/quote]

Thanks for the deep argument. I could comment on as what you come across as, but Ill pass.

Links, please. This looks suspect.

Go to the CDC page. It is right there.

This is a story about France. Why are you ‘quoting‘ CDC figures? Are these figures specific to France?

Because I have a bookmark to the CDC page. Do you expect the French figures to be radically different?

Are you still standing by your belief that the spikes in infections have no relation to the spikes in deaths?

Yes. "Infections" do not mean deaths, and reflect testing more than anything else.

The increase in cases may not lead to more deaths but anyone who needs to be on a ventilator may develop long term effects from the virus.

One thing the medical profession has learned is that ventilators do more damage than good. Are you perhaps clinging outdated stories from a time when the virus was much less known than today?

Trump blamed the "Biden lockdown" forgetting the he won't be president until next month?

It is amazing to see the view from inside the bubble. If all their friends are in the same bubble and all they watch is the homogenized corporate media, people seriously do not realize that there is a whole universe outside the bubble. I suppose you do not even know who Tony Bobulinski is? Outside the bubble, it is huge issue, inside the bubble he gets the Voldemort treatment.

This looks so much like 2016, even if Big Tech and the media are putting both thumbs and then some on the scale.

klausdorth

so, 800 deaths a day is nothing?

Depends what you compare it with. Out of the blue, the number means nothing. As I said, looking at the statistics, the death rate remains flat.

And please don't blame it on the democrats .... this is Trump's and his administration's fault!

But guess the States as well as the rest of the world have to put up with this clown for another roughly 2 weeks!

I have always argued against drawing a simplistic straight line between Corona results and politics. But if you must, please notice that as before, the handful of states with astronomic Corona deaths (which pull up the entire Corona average number) are all Democrat run. This latest blip in low-death rate states that the media is now salivating over is statistically irrelevant.

n relation to this, there is a very interesting interview with Dr Mike Yeadon, a long-time and highly accomplished biochemist from the pharmaceutical industry, on his take on why this virus is not the danger that governments, the mainstream media and pharma PR claim it to be.

I ask skeptics to give it a listen before dismissing it.

Nobody notices how the media have switched their narrative from "deaths" to "cases"? "Cases" for a disease that kills almost no-one are of course irrelevant. But people must be kept scared, it seems.

More evidence, not that any is needed, that this president will do nothing to protect our electoral process from foreign interference if it’s to his benefit.

Since both the CCP and Russia would be happy with a corrup Biden presidency, that accusation is a bit of a contradiction in terms...

Ok, what exactly is the crime? A VPs son arranges for his father the VP to meet someone from a foreign business he works for and that foreign nation obtw just happens to have the third largest troop contingent in Iraq under the US flag. 

You mean the foreign business that hired him without any other qualifications than being the VP son and without any other business duties than to talk to the VP? And that foreign business that is slated to receive a massive amount of funds from the US, which the VP then threatened to cut off, unless the prosecutor who was going to investigate this foreign business was fired? And "son of a gun, it worked".

Yeah, you are right. Nothing to see here. Move on. Lets go back to watching CNN.

Why isn't anyone saying anything about this when they had lots to say about previous articles on this topic? Isn't this the kind of muslim they were wishing for? Surely some words of praise are due?

Sure, I praise him. But he is one of too few, and as the article himself notices, he got his own death threats already from the fundamentalists.

There are islamic reformer like this (note also Majid Navaz in the UK), but they too few and they are fighting an uphill battle.

So Chalghoumicalled on mosques in France to pray for the teacher. Do not hold your breath for that. One thing you can be certain is that we will not read any reports about thousands of mosques holding prayers for the murdered infidel who showed Mohammed cartoons in class.
