The insanity continues, and so shall my rants...

1. CDC: as long as you muzzle your 3 year old in California, no vaccinated adults at a weeklong sex party in Massachusetts will have an asymptomatic positive PCR test
2. Masks dont work & prob make it worse: "rates of all infection[s] were highest in the cloth mask arm, w the rate of ILI statistically significantly higher in the cloth mask arm"
"Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97%"
"may result in increased risk of infection"
3. 18 years ago, during SARS 1, Australia fined people up to $110k for suggesting that masks work…
4. CCP is aware of the divisive & destructive hysteria building over "Delta" in the US and they plan to use it against us by pretending another strict lockdown will eradicate it. 300 cases but in 15 different provinces, so roughly 20 in each? I think not.…
5. 300,000 more people died at home last year than in a normal year. 273,000 of them were not from COVID. Lockdowns kill.

6. Related to 4 above, anyone who works in the financial/investing community knows that China fabricates its national economic data; I'm not sure why there is a reluctance to believe the same would not hold true for its pandemic figures
7. Nancy Pelosi is 81 years old and therefore, assuming she is vaccinated, at 96 times the risk from COVID as my unvaccinated kids. I am glad she is following the science and not wearing a mask. But please, don't make my kids either. Image
8. The moralizing of infection needs to stop. What is next? Do we contact trace any elderly person that gets infected with a cold from their grandchild that turns into pneumonia, and then charge the child with a crime? We have truly lost our minds. This is a mass hysteria.
9. The four largest health insurers had record profits last year because no one received medical care. That's ... not a good thing.

- Centene: gross profits up 72% in 2020
- Humana: up 41%
- Anthem: up 22%
- United Health: up 16%
10. The health authorities are basically the disease version of the Federal Reserve. Every year since the financial crisis they have produced a chart like the below saying they expect to raise rates and they never do. The government has no idea what they're doing and no exit plan Image
11. The fundamental issue we have is there is a new societal risk (here to stay) that we must learn to live with

However, such message is untenable in an entitled society where everyone has learned to blame someone else for their problems and demand solutions from politicians
12. The US has contrived a narrative that Delta is more dangerous in an attempt to stoke fear and drive more vaccination. However, in the UK the hospitalization per cases ratio continued to drop during their Delta wave Image
13. In fact Delta, like every other wave we've seen, appears to run its natural course to peak over a 45-50 day period Image
14. Indeed several other European countries already saw their Delta wave come and go with no increased risk contrary to the US fear driven narrative Image
15. For fun, look at France's winter and spring wave compared to the 1918 wave in Paris. Look familiar? See how the months line up? Virus gonna virus ImageImage
16. Notice how CDC is suddenly interested in tracking hospitalizations and deaths with an incidental COVID diagnosis in vaccinated people - about 25% are coded as COVID but have nothing to do with it. Obviously this applies to non-vaccinated people as well & likely higher % Image
17. Boomers, please shelter in place at your single family home w yard that you purchased for a fraction of its current price (inflated by lockdown/Fed) that is now beyond reach of the younger generation and working class that have been doubly screwed over by lockdowns Image
18. This:
-is unconstitutional
-is not "limited" if it applies to 90% of the country
-same metric will be used to attempt to impose further national restrictions
19. A congressional report yesterday stated that it believes COVID leaked in Wuhan no later than September 2019. There were ~700k flights per month from China to the US during that timeframe.…
20. But also consider the following: ImageImage

Even in the Zerocovid police states of Australia& NZ, pediatricians talk more sense than those in USA regarding child Delta:

"Its important to note that many [child hospitalizations] were for social hospitalisation statistics do not provide a good marker of severity"
We "would like to reassure children and their parents that while the COVID delta variant has shown that
children are able to be infected and transmit COVID-19, COVID-19 is and generally remains a
mild infection in children."
"children are affected by...restrictions causing impacts on education and mental health.”

"Although one death has been recorded, the child in question was a 15-year-old boy who
was being treated for pneumococcal meningitis"

As predicted, nothing in Biden's plan will accomplish anything other than to further & dangerously divide the nation

Interestingly, some data from the UK came out today that refutes everything in his plan (other than increasing treatments which is of course good)

Let's look...
1. "Vaccinating the Unvaccinated" (mandates for workplaces)

Case rates are comparable or higher in vaccinated adults than unvaccinated.

Seems like it should be a personal choice given it clearly doesn't stop transmission.
2. "Protecting the Vaccinated"

Ugh, isn't that what the vaccine is for?

Anyway, the data looks decent, though nothing like what we were promised.

As the prior chart demonstrates, transmission is not stopped by the vaccine anyhow, meaning it offers personal protection only.

When COVID hit, I began hearing rumblings of a book called Unrestricted Warfare, written by 2 former Chinese Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) senior colonels & published by PLA

In short, it describes what war will look like in a post-nuclear, mutually assured destruction, age
I read the book cover to cover and I thought you might be interested in some quotes/passages I highlighted, which I encourage you to read w current events in mind.

“the media has become an immediate and integral part of warfare”

“China can pump propaganda into the American media while restricting American media’s access to the Chinese media landscape”

A non-military attack could “cause the enemy nation to fall into social panic, street riots, and a political crisis”

Another day, another European country embarrassing the US with its rational child COVID policies (this time courtesy of Norway):

First, and most importantly: "Children under 12 years are not recommended to use face masks"

"Children who play together do not have to keep a distance. Children can have friends for sleepovers if everyone is well"

"Leisure activities are important for the physical & mental well-being of children & adolescents. Therefore, leisure activities should be maintained"

"Transmission in schools and childcare centres contributes only to a small extent in the spread of COVID-19 in the society"

"in areas where adults are mainly vaccinated, it is expected that an increasing proportion of all cases will occur among the child population"

A brief meandering thread

1. Many argue over the cost-benefit analysis of COVID measures (eg lockdowns, masks). This is jumping the gun: first, an actual benefit must be established, which has not occurred for either masks or lockdowns. So all we have are the immense costs.
2. "Odious debt" is a legal theory that sovereign debt incurred to oppress a population is unenforceable

Govts have spent $trillions locking ppl in their homes, promoting an environment of fear, closing schools & businesses, & banning worship, dating, & visitation of the ill 🤔
3. If Im being pessimistic, it strikes me we r basically in same place as 18 mths ago despite having implemented catastrophic lockdowns & administered billions of vax doses: w a virus that hits the elderly/comorbid very hard but which all others overcome w minor, if any, symptoms

On Wed, Biden said he'll "say a lot more about children & schools next week"

I think a Natl mask mandate is coming. Why? To prevent disenrollment in pub schools & to prevent data frm showing it makes no difference

Consider this study on disenrollment bc of remote learning:
Just released today:

"Specifically, our estimates suggest that offering remote-only instruction increased disenrollment by
42 percent... relative to in-person instruction"

The same will hold for masks IF other options are available

Biden and the US left's continuing demand for masks on kids in schools is a complete world outlier. There is ZERO evidence of effectiveness (let alone cost-benefit analysis). It's pure sunk cost fallacy at this point given how rabid the debate has been.
