Is COVID Logic Finally Rearing Its Ugly Head in America??

Despite the massive level of misinformation being peddled by political actors, autocrats at the state level, and partisans masquerading as journalists, it appears that some level of sanity is arising when it comes to COVID.

An eminent Canadian physician, Dr. Roger Hodkinson, said in a statement that

“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driving by media and politicians. … [It] is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.

“This is nothing more than a bad flu season. … There is no action needed. Masks are utterly useless. Social distancing is also useless.

“Positive testing results do NOT indicate clinical infection. It is simply driving public hysteria and ALL testing should STOP immediately unless you are presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem. Using the province’s [Canada’s Alberta] statistics the risk of death under age 65 is 1 in 300,000. You’re being led down the garden path.”

Sadly, that’s true. Denmark just completed a large (6,000 initial participants) random, controlled study and found that during the measurement period (which was at least twice as long as the suspected incubation period of the virus) there was no statistical difference in rate of infection between those who wore masks either “all the time in public” or “most of the time in public” and those who “never” wore masks.

1.8% of those with masks were infected; 2.1% of those without masks were infected – within the statistical level of confidence.

Our problem is that we have tyrants claiming to “follow the science.” But they don’t believe in science; they worship science. Here’s a good graphic showing the difference between science and science worshipping, which is a religion, not science.

It is understandable that a “journalist” with an agenda (is there any other kind?) would follow the worshipper model. Few have any training, and those that have training allow their political persuasions to overrule what remains of their intelligence.

But large numbers of Americans are intelligent enough to make their own decisions … any they’re doing so. And now that Biden has presumably “won,” the urge to continually present misleading, vacuous thinking is finally waning. Even the NY Times, is now publishing stories that begin to move toward rationality.

So, while autocrats in states like

  • New York, (where Cuomo still hasn’t released how many citizens died because of the order he personally signed that sent active COVID-19 victims back into nursing homes),
  • New Jersey
  • Vermont
  • Illinois
  • Minnesota
  • Montana
  • Idaho
  • Washington
  • California
  • Alaska

are or were (thank you SCOTUS!!!) overriding the First Amendment rights to free practice of religion, the facts are slowly, slowly, ever-so-slowly beginning to come out.

Tune in over the next few days. I’m planning to lay out the truth that is emerging.
