World-famous Celebrity makes shocking statement about the Flu

And the Coronavirus

After a prominent celebrity went public with the following statement on national television, I tried to contact him for a follow-up. No luck so far. He does seem to urge people to take the flu shot, but his other remarks are potentially explosive, if you fill in a few blanks and glean the implications. Here is his statement:

“I want you to understand something that shocked me when I saw it. I spoke with Dr. Fauci on this and I was really amazed, and I think most people are amazed to hear it. The [ordinary] flu in our country kills from 25,000 people to 69,000 people a year. That was shocking to me. So far, if you look at what we [in the US] have with the 15 people [diagnosed with the coronavirus] and they’re recovering, one is pretty sick, but hopefully we’ll [he’ll] recover. But the others are in great shape. But think of that. 25,000 to 69,000 [ordinary flu deaths annually]. Over the last 10 years, we’ve lost 360,000. These are people that have died from the flu, from what we call the flu…”

He seems to be pointing a big fat accusatory finger at US public health agencies, like the CDC, as he says, Look, all these deaths from ordinary flu every single year, like clockwork, and you don’t declare THAT an epidemic or an emergency, so why are you issuing stern warnings when 15 people in the US have been diagnosed with the coronavirus; imagine the reaction if we had 35,000 deaths year after year from the coronavirus in the US; you would go nuts; what’s wrong with you people?

You can see why I wanted to follow up with him. All sorts of issues to explore and discuss.

Of course, as I’ve shown in these pages many times, he’s dead wrong about how many people can be confirmed as annual flu deaths in the US. That number is really miniscule. Nevertheless, his point stands: if national public health agencies CLAIM that 35,000 people a year die of ordinary flu, why don’t they call that an epidemic? And why do they call 15 “coronavirus cases” in the US an emergency?

I wanted to sort all this out with him, but it looks like I won’t be able to.

His name is Donald Trump, and he made his comments Wednesday night during his address to the nation (at the 5m35s mark).

The press made very little mention of this, except to disparage him for daring to compare ordinary pedestrian flu to the white-hot coronavirus situation. What is ordinary about the claim that 360,000 Americans per decade die of the flu? That’s a puzzle, isn’t it? I just called my doctor. He told me to take two Thorazine, go to bed, and think about it again in the morning.

    Jon, I also saw that, on the news yesterday. I watch most all the time. Sly like a FOX. You may read between the lines also. The Ordinary MEASLES or FLU, etc. that we come down with, Runs it’s Course. VERY FEW Die from it. Then we run to Dr. Needle, and get “OUR” Vaccinations to “Protect” us from the MEASLES and FLU. DUE to getting the Vaccines, which CAUSE’S many, if not most, of us to come down with a MUCH WORSE, BY FAR, case of the ATYPICAL form of the MEASLES or FLU. Now MANY of us, DIE from the ATYPICAL MEASLES or FLU. POISONED from “OUR” SHOTS, that the “Good” Dr. Needle gave us. Very often we can get “OUR” vaccines “FREE.” How very Noble of them.?? Nothing comes for “FREE” from the Medical Mafia, Unless there is something in it for “THEM.” OH, YES, “There IS A LOT IN IT FOR THEM.” IN MANY WAYS.!!!!!

  3. WestcoastDeplorable says:

    The CDC ADMITS they calculate annual flu deaths based on a formula, not empirical facts. In other words, it’s a guess and probably not an educated one!

  4. Lisa Harper says:

    If the CDC spewed *The sky is falling*, many would believe them. The flu shot, as with prescription drugs, has brainwashed millions in believing they cannot survive without some poison being ingested or injected in to their body. Let’s make up a ridiculous figure, and the drugs and shots will be flying off the shelves. I still agree with Jon…this is total BS, and sadly with all the ongoing hype and hysteria, one would think that tomorrow the sky will be falling.

  5. Kate Woods says:

    I’m frankly surprised that someone as credible as Mike Adams is pushing this agenda as well. I’m not afraid of the Corona boogey man.

    • cynthia silveri says:

      Yes, I am troubled by Mike Adams stance on this as well. I absolutely believe this PLANDEMIC is a crock of you know what.

    • MaidinAmerica says:

      Ive noticed this also. And what’s with the big push for getting tested? With what? Unreliable test kits? What else could be observed in these “tests”? And with this huge distraction what is the deep state trying to pull off behind the scenes?

  6. Troy says:

    53 mins into the presser a journalist compared the “0.1%” mortality rate of the flu vs “2-3%” mortality rate of coronavirus.

    I noticed Trump corrected him on both stats. He said the flu is “much higher [than 0.1%]” then he expressed the “2-3%” stat was a “we think.” [We think its 2 to 3%] His people don’t seem to be so sure.

  7. Troy says:

    Speaking of celebrities, Dr. Drew (Pinsky), was briefly interviewed a few days ago and essentially said the same thing:

    “I’m really pissed at the way the press is reporting the coronavirus. […] They should be reporting it like ‘In spite of the fact that there are tens of thousands of more causes than we thought originally, its milder than we thought, and only 300 people have died.’ Worry about the flu.” … “Influenza is way more likely to kill you.”


    Dr Oz also made a contextual argument in this brief interview:

    “The mortality rate is small.”

    “It might be as big as SARS but SARS only took 800 people. The flu takes 40 – 50 thousand lives. Put it into perspective, 800 lives or 50,000 lives. I mean, com’on.”


  8. Wayne says:

    Hey Jon I live in Toronto, and remember the SARS “crisis” vividly. It always struck me as odd that Toronto was the only North American city that had a major SARS outbreak. Like why not Buffalo, a stones throw away. Vancouver get’s heavier air traffic from Asia, but was incomprehensibly spared a SARS crisis. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle too

    But why Toronto and not those cities. Probably because those places didn’t have grandstanding public health officials. The province’s Chief Medical Officer, Sheela Basrur, was on TV everyday, scaring the crap out of the public with breathless warnings. The ministry also claimed victory when it was all over. But if it really was as deadly as the narrative had us believing, then I’m a bit skeptical that their measures really did anything. But it was a happy ending for the Ministry of Health, because the following year Sheela Basrur’s office got a big budget boost. Because of SARS. The only winners in Toronto’s SARS “Crisis”, were the media, and the Ministry of Health

  9. BS Detector says:

    And yet the CDC sales pitch for flu shots has NOTHING about the numbers or relative percentages of those who “died from the flu” who were also VACCINATED for it. Their silence on the matter is DEAFENING.

  10. Redpill says:

    The CDC pushed the lie that 80,000 people died from the Flu in the 2018-19 flu season. Think about it. That would mean in the 6 months Flu Season about 13,300 deaths per month, over 400 deaths per day. Why hasn’t the media reported on daily funerals? Surely deaths of this magnitude would be reported on. This would be a CDC/pharma dream to push the flu shot.

    CDC states they have no idea how many get the flu or die from it. States only have to report on the deaths of children from the flu-not adults.

    Notwithstanding its incessant use of influenza statistics to justify its flu vaccine policies, the CDC tries to have it both ways, cautioning that because “influenza activity reporting…is voluntary,” influenza surveillance in the U.S. “cannot be used to ascertain how many people have become ill with influenza during the influenza season.” A larger problem is that the vital statistics that form the basis of the CDC’s surveillance data conflate deaths from pneumonia and influenza (P&I). The CDC concedes that this conflation complicates the challenge of specifically estimating flu deaths:

    The system “tracks the proportion of death certificates processed that list pneumonia or influenza as the underlying or contributing cause of death. This system…does not provide an exact number of how many people died from flu” [emphasis added].

    An article was published in 2012:
    Flu deaths reality check | CBC News-Credibility of flu models disputed.
    stated this:

    “The fact is, no one knows how many people die after being infected with the flu virus. The death estimates are not based on body counts, lab tests or autopsies.”

    Apparently multiple models that are used by the CDC and Canada Some of the models include this:

    “Another model assumes that every extra death that happens in the winter is a flu death. At the risk of oversimplifying, this is the basic formula of that model: winter deaths (minus) summer deaths = death by flu virus.

    That includes winter deaths from slippery sidewalks, snowy roads, freezing temperatures, plus all the winter heart failure, lung failure and deaths from cancer. In the language of the computer model, all excess mortality in winter is considered “death by flu.”

    The model extrapolates that the flu virus will cause more deaths across all causes, including “disorders of the nervous system,” stroke and “disorders of the digestive system.” Which means that according to the model, flu causes 33 more “accidental falls” every year, 18 more “accidental poisonings,” and 68 more deaths from “psychotic conditions.” But what does flu have to do with deaths from accidental poisonings or accidental falls? to guess how many people are infected by the Flu and how many die.

    If you want to know exactly how many people die from Influenza go to the CDC’s National Vital Statics Reports which they have messed with yet.

    This is what I have a problem with and what I predict. There are those claiming it’s the rollout of the 5G in Wuhan that caused the so-called coronavirus. I have also read that sometime in October there was a massive inoculation program (vaccinations) that occurred. The Chinese were vaccinated with the SARS-Covid-2 vaccine. At least 2 clinical studies show that once vaccinated they were more susceptible to the COVID-19.
    The worst cases/deaths have occurred in Kirkland, WA where Bill Gates invested $10,000,000 in a company:
    I believe in coincidences but nothing like this one.
    I believe it was the combination of the vaccine and the 5G rollout that created the problem. Add to that the horrible pollution in China, I know I was there in 1992 for 1 month and could hardly breathe.
    Trump et…al are breathlessly waiting for the BIG Pharma to save us with vaccines. They are on the fast-track to have one. Of course anyone in their right mind will not take it. How many months/years does a manufacturer have to wait, testing the safety and efficacy of a drug? In this case not much.
    I predict we will have a huge rise in “coronavirus” cases after the vaccination programs – it will be the vaccine itself creating the illusion of a virus causing deaths and illness.

    The statistics on how many die of the flu are nonsense. If so many people die of the flu, why have I so far not known anyone personally who has died of the flu? And I am a senior citizen. Several years ago I researched the statistics, and I found out that the CDC combined the number of deaths from pneumonia (a large number) with the number of deaths from the flu and then claimed that all those people died from the flu.
