hey, remember 6 weeks ago when @IHME_UW predicted a big uptick in swedish deaths unless they all started wearing masks?

let's see how that turned out.

oooh, not so well. not only are we not seeing an uptick, it has instead dropped to zero. no deaths since 10/13 (1)
it's worth pointing this out because these guys revise history more than a marxist economic history textbook.

they update their "models" to backfit and look like they have been accurate.

but the tests of a model is forward prediction.

and IHME fails this test miserably.
they have sophisticated public relations and know how to hide the fact that they have been stunningly wrong, over and over and missed by 10-100X in many cases, but screenshots don't lie.

make sure you grab some too.

the version of history you save may be your own...

several months back, the danes undertook a large, randomized, controlled mask study

it has been completed for some time

the lead investigator says they will publish it "as soon as a journal is brave enough to accept the paper"

sounds like the results do not support mask use... Image
given the fearsome government pressure on this topic & the intense slant in the journals, if this showed that masks worked, they'd have all the top publications fighting over it.

the results must be terrible. even no efficacy seems mild for this kind of response

was it "harm"?
because that would not be at all surprising, especially if they actually measured adverse events as well

this large, well run study showed that even fitted masks used by trained surgeons in operating theaters increased risk of post op infection. (by 34%)

you want to see true bravery and scientific and intellectual integrity?

try this:

ms kuppalli throws down the gauntlet!

and i respond with several sets of data showing mask inefficacy.

her response: block the cat.

could there be a clearer admission that she has no argument? Image

this is the sort of weak rejoinder i think many of us have come to expect from the political arm of team apocalypse. Image
i guess we'll never know just why she recanted all the anti-mask science her much vaunted expertise had taught her and flipped to the opposite position.

you'd think such an "expert" would have clear data and be able to share it.

if there is one thing that galls me, it's the self righteous sanctimony of partisan weather vane "experts" like @KrutikaKuppalli making appeals to their own authority and trying to shame others into silence

but when you pile rank hypocrisy on top of that, it becomes intolerable. Image

she loves to hector others on what an expert she is and expressing that "she knows the science" and you don't.

the issue here is that she's a partisan liar

she agreed with what scott is saying now as recently as march. she said that was science Image
it turns out she used to know the science as recently as february of this year.

scott's science. the actual science.

march really as that flight picture is from march 11. Image

fun thread on the early covid response of andy cuomo. predictably, the facts tell a VERY different story than the big book of fairy tales he just published.

and this does not even get to the horrific policy of forcing cov+ patients into nursing homes then lying about it.
that policy was among the worst in the world. 6 US states did it. they are ~19% of us population. they had 45% of covid deaths. the same thing happened in spain, italy, quebec, and everywhere it was tried.

andrew did it. then he lied about it. then he tried to cover it up.
it was his order. he put his name on it. then, when asked about it, claimed to not know who did it.

then, he changed the way NY state reported nursing home deaths to hide the results of his policy.

this was deliberate and dishonest.

can literally anyone be surprised by this?

we knew this all along.

this is why the NIH allowed gilead to change the primary endpoint of this trial 2 weeks before it read out: because it provided no survival benefit and they could see it in the data.

this drug would have failed a fair trial. they literally changed the rules in the middle and found a subset (recovery) that was, frankly, not that efficacious either, and jammed it through

i'm sure it had nothing do do with the 8 people paid by gilead on the NIH panel for covid
how is that not a massive conflict of interest?

how were these people not recused?

this was an extreme and one might even say outlandish action to take.

it does not appear to have been done with clean hands.

is that how you want your drugs approved?

the first rule of economics is that resources are scarce and there are never enough goods or services to meet demand.

the first rule of politics is to ignore the first rule of economics.

so, should any of us be surprised that they ignored all the rules of epidemiology as well?
we have allowed 100 years of pandemic guidelines to be thrown out the window and be replaced with scientifically illiterate grandstanding and demagoguery.

we have elevated fools and charlatans to posts of dictatorial power and turned them loose upon an unsuspecting populace.
they mistook reality (on the right) for the bizarre and improbable tenets of their dated, failed models that had been rapidly repurposed to spread fear and push for budgets once more.

read this whole article, it's wonderful.
