They lied to us

Karl Denninger observes that the lies about the lethal threat from COVID-19 are already unraveling:

We were all lied to about how “horrible” 2020 was going to be — and was — in terms of excess death.  Indeed this is the “justification” used for everything — ‘Warp Speed’ (despite the now-emerging risks of killing people wholesale), lockdowns, mask orders, destruction of businesses, ruining a full year of student education in the United States and more.

The CDC paraded around their charts telling us repeatedly that people were dropping dead at a ridiculous rate and so did the media.  You know, people were dying but otherwise wouldn’t have?  This was the entire reason that politicians, businesses, schools and others gave us for all these “measures”; we had to do it because people were going to and did die at a wildly-excessive rate.  This was an awful pandemic, remember — the worst since 1918, dwarfing all recent experience.

What if I told you that was all a lie?

Fact: It was a lie.

2020 was not the worst excess death year since the 1918 pandemic.

It was second.

The worst year in recent memory was…. wait for it…… 2017.

That’s right — all of the screaming, the lockdowns, masks, development of stabs, all of it: We did it and are still doing it for, what we now know, was a complete and total load of bull****.

In 2017 the excess death rate was 14.7{cc08d85cfa54367952ab9c6bd910a003a6c2c0c101231e44cdffb103f39b73a6}, with 400,732 excess fatalities (more than in 2020) resulting in 13.0 million years of lost life and this was wildly higher than in 2020 because a very large percentage of those excess deaths in 2017 were in working-age people who had a lot of years left, on average, where in 2020 an enormous percentage of the deaths were in nursing homes where the average life expectancy at admission is SIX MONTHS.  How much worse was 2017?  Let me quote it for you:

The comparison is more striking when years of life lost is the measure used. Goldstein and Lee estimate that the mean loss of life years for a person dying from COVID-19 in the United States is 11.7 y. Multiplying 377,000 decedents by 11.7 years lost per decedent gives a total of 4.41 million years of life lost to COVID19 in 2020, only a third of the 13.02 million life years lost to excess mortality in the United States in 2017.

In terms of years of life lost due to excess mortality 2017 wasn’t just worse than 2020 — IT WAS THREE TIMES AS BAD and more people, by gross count, died in excess as well!

In short the media, Fauci, Birx, your Governor, your county and city Mayors and all the so-called experts lied through their teeth and rat****ed you, your employment, your social life and scared you to death over a disease that in fact resulted in less excess death by a factor of three in terms of years lost than an entirely-ordinary year three years prior during which nobody said a damned word.

We should use every means available, fair or foul, to shove this fact up the rectums of all government agencies and so-called “experts” that screwed us for what was not a record-breaking year in terms of excess deaths.  In short they lied; just three years earlier we had a worse year and yet not one peep was uttered nor a single action taken that harmed or destroyed a person, business or freedom.

Bet this won’t get into the public consciousness?  Like hell it won’t.

It’s already happening.

Got that? Fewer people died in 2020 than in 2017. So much for the dread “pandemic”. Early on, I wondered what the result would be when all of the dire predictions turned out to be baseless and false. What a pity that so many people chose to believe the liars and permitted their genes to be modified for fear of absolutely nothing. 

Fauci’s babbling about racism sounds a lot like a film studio’s marketing department attempting to establish SJW credentials in the hopes of inspiring NPCs to buy tickets in support of a movie that everyone knows is going to bomb.
