Johns Hopkins study explodes COVID death hoax; it’s re-labeling on a grand scale

“This patient who died had an ordinary heart attack.”

“Not anymore. We’re repackaging it as COVID.”

Don’t blink. Johns Hopkins may delete or retract their analysis at any moment. Their author’s study is devastating. Too hot to handle.

UPDATE: Yes, I wrote that opener a few hours before Johns Hopkins stepped in and DID retract the article. Boom. [1] [2] [3] [4]

Hopkins claims the article has been used to spread misinformation about the pandemic, and contains factual errors. CDC is cited as one correct source of facts. Hmm.

Regardless, here is my article, finished before the Johns Hopkins retraction. Since then, I’ve only polished it a bit in several places, for clarity:

Months ago, I told you this, in a number of articles: The overwhelming percentage of people who are “dying from the virus” are actually dying from traditional diseases.

These people have been relabeled and repackaged as “COVID-19.”

It has nothing to do with “the virus.”

A new analysis from Johns Hopkins confirms this in spades.

The Johns Hopkins News-Letter article, in a student publication, is headlined, “A closer look at US deaths due to COVID-19.” It lays out the case made by “Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins.”

As you keep reading, keep this in mind: If the so-called increase in mortality from COVID is offset, almost exactly, by a decrease in deaths from all other major diseases…

Indicating that the so-called COVID deaths are nothing more than an exercise in re-labeling, then…

You can say there is a new coronavirus, but it’s even less harmful than flu, because virtually everybody recovers…

Or you can say the whole story of a new coronavirus is a fake narrative. There is no new virus.

My readers know I’ve been offering much evidence for the latter conclusion.

Here are key quotes from the Johns Hopkins News-Letter article:

“These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.”

“This comes as a shock to many people. How is it that the data lie so far from our perception?”

“When Briand looked at the 2020 data during that seasonal period, COVID-19-related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual since heart disease has always prevailed as the leading cause of deaths. However, when taking a closer look at the death numbers, she noted something strange. As Briand compared the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to [deaths per cause in] 2018, she noticed that instead of the expected drastic increase across all causes, there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising, as seen in the graph below, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes.”

“This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, as depicted in the table below, the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be [may have been] recategorized as being due to COVID-19.”

“The CDC classified all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths. Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths. This is likely the main explanation as to why COVID-19 deaths drastically increased while deaths by all other diseases experienced a significant decrease.”

“’All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,’ Briand concluded.”

“’If [the COVID-19 death toll] was not misleading at all, what we should have observed is an increased number of heart attacks and increased COVID-19 numbers. But a decreased number of heart attacks and all the other death causes doesn’t give us a choice but to point to some misclassification [re-labeling],’ Briand replied.”

“In other words, the effect of COVID-19 on deaths in the U.S. is considered problematic only when it increases the total number of deaths or the true death burden by a significant amount in addition to the expected deaths by other causes. Since the crude number of total deaths by all causes before and after COVID-19 [was first announced] has stayed the same, one can hardly say, in Briand’s view, that COVID-19 deaths are concerning.”

Of course, there is some mealy-mouthed backtracking in the article. The virus is deadly and the pandemic is real, etc. But the data are the data.

The whole COVID operation is a hoax.

If I thought other honest researchers would investigate and re-calculate the Hopkins analysis, I would say, let’s see what they come up with. But based on my experience, there will be, at best, a brief flurry of articles in the press about this extraordinary finding, and then the scientific and press denizens will move on, as if nothing happened. That is their way. They briefly expose a scandal and then they slither off to cover up the scandal.

The other possibility is: Hopkins will retract the analysis, claiming it was flawed. That is the other strategy the low-crawling creatures sometimes deploy.

So there you have it.

Hoax. Con. Fake.

As I keep reporting, the virus (never proven to exist) is the cover story for the true phase-one goal: destruction of the economy.

If the virus were real, if it were attacking people left and right, the all-cause mortality numbers would be through the roof.

But they aren’t.

“I have a great idea, Bill. Let’s declare a fake pandemic. We’ll report all sorts of high death numbers. But really, we’ll just be subtracting numbers from other traditional diseases that cause deaths, and we’ll add those numbers to our fake pandemic.”

“Sounds great, Tony. Can you pull it off? I mean, it’s pretty obvious.”

“Sure, we can pull it off. And if some journalist with a mainstream reputation or an institution suddenly develops a brief infection of ETHICS, we’ll call their work a mistake or a lapse in judgment.”

“You mean an institution like the World Health Organization or Johns Hopkins?”

“Right. We’ll say the institution didn’t issue the study, it was just one of their people, a lone researcher. And if necessary, the institution, under pressure, will back off. But that’s assuming anyone noticed the study in the first place. Normally, these ‘revelations’ surface for a moment and then sink like a stone. No one cares. A pandemic is a money waterfall. The beneficiaries won’t sacrifice their bottom lines, or their reputations…”

Of course, people can rise up and raise holy hell.

  1. Low Voltage says:

    COVID-19 is nothing more than a Hollywood movie that the entire world is acting out, and this is the only sense in which “we’re all in this together.” Unfortunately, too many people are enjoying their part in the drama, and there’s no evidence or lack of evidence that will ever pry them away from their fantasy world.

    • Epicurious says:

      A high current comment. Smiley face.

    • Bob Mazza says:

      Well said.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      Watching American TV shows with the stars wearing face nappies and taking them off and on shows they are loving the play acting. I worked out based on 2018 deaths of 2.84 million deaths in the USA there are 7,000 less deaths a month this year in spite of the massive population increase. And if they were certain they had a new disease or virus they would not count something like covid equivalent in the USA and Covid like in the UK, why don’t the media blow up the nonsense. If I could find it without much trouble from Australia surely stupid Americans can find the data.

      Like in Texas where they have the gall to claim people from 100-110 with up to 7 co morbidities died of covid.

      • JD Benisi says:

        Let us each put our laser printers to work. Make copies of these articles and mail them to physicians in our neighborhoods. It important to inform those in the trenches..those that will be instructed to vaccinate. Knowledge is Power. Knowledge on a grand scale will lead to resistance.

    • Katy says:

      SO what about all those videos of people struggling to breathe in hospitals saying I thought it was a hoax, but it’s not?

  2. Kat says:

    what is the “excess deaths over the past five years”? some bimbo tried to pass that off on me; this was before this study came out i believe

  3. Hi Jon, some more info pertaining to this report.
    https://wmbriggs.com/post/33680/

    Keep up the good work. Thanks

  4. Vj says:

    What about these stories of long haulers of covid? Is there a blog about that? I couldn’t find one.

    • TS says:

      I won’t say that I am a long hauler but I would like and appreciate anyone’ thoughts on this matter. I have been without taste or smell, in the absence of nasal congestion for the past two weeks. Does anyone have any insight into what might prompt a loss of the senses for this length of time; not to mention those who have experienced it for longer. Thank you.

      • April Besch says:

        Regular flu can cause loss of taste and smell too. Flu is your body’s natural detoxification. Also consider if you are living near any newly installed 5G small cells. Radiation can also cause this symptom.

  5. green says:

    Counting deaths is not as straightforward as recording every death. Throughout a year there will be constant revisions to death counts. Right now the raw data on all deaths reported does show excessive deaths but these excessive deaths have no causes yet and that is normal for each year.

    The study is right that the current deaths with official causes show the increase in COVID deaths match decreases in other causes. But that can change once the other deaths receive official causes. So we cannot make an accurate judgment until the year is completed. However it should go both ways where officials cannot spread their misinformation on deaths either.

    • Haniel Adhar says:

      The excessive deaths are attributable to patients being treated for a disease they do not have.

      The Medical Industry is the 3rd leading cause of death in America, and it is much more viable a source of death than any virus.

    • Epicurious says:

      So what percent of total deaths is deaths due to known causes?

  6. el Gallinazo says:

    The archive link still works and I saved the article as a pdf. Very sloppy not to pull the archive also, but not as sloppy as the vote fraud.

  7. martin chretien says:

    It seems rather obvious to me that you can not suddenly magically have a decrease in all other causes of deaths just when supposedly a new disease comes around. That would make no sense. My only problem is other sites like Mike Adams at natural news wrote an article saying all cause mortality in the US was over 200,000 more than usual. I also read another article saying that it was over 100,000. However I trust this woman’s research because she has impeccable credentials and is from a super mainstream source, John Hopkins. I am not sure if there is a real virus at all. I think that there may have been or is a new bacterial pneumonia. Covid could be a passenger virus that accompanies the pneumonia but does no harm. Jon however makes a pretty powerful case that a virus has not been proven to exist and the PCR test is definitely useless and easily manipulated based on number of amplifications whereby more amplifications leads to huge percentages of false positives. I can see that an intelligent group could pull off a plandemic to usher in a NWO. I do a daily podcast on corona at the below website. I am on twitter as freeheartman

    • Haniel Adhar says:

      Mike Adams is full of it. There is no 200,000 increase in deaths.

      We all would see this personally and no one has.

      He’s not as smart as he thinks he is, and there are dozens of “outlets” that are trying to say how much of a killer this “virus” is but no one can agree on how many people it actually has killed. The real number is zero.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      Usually,

      Pneumonia is a secondary or opportunistic infection, due to the body’s weakened immune defenses. This is why Azithromycin was included in the treatment regimen with HCQ (and hopefully, Zinc supplementation too) – to combat the secondary bacterial infection of Pneumonia.

      However,

      As we all should know, Pneumonia is often deadly enough itself, and could happen to anyone with a severely-depressed immune system.

      So we still have to look at other factors (environmental, especially) that would have contributed to the weakening of people’s immune systems to the level that they become even more susceptible to any existing infectious agents in their environment. – There again, the WHO, CDC, NIH, and other such “health agencies” and their corporate proxies would deny any other contributing causes – because that would threaten the profitability of their “preferred treatments” (read: experimental “vaccines”).

    “…is the cover story

    destruction of the economy.”

    Over the weekend, one governor wants to limit or ban Christmas-mall shopping.

    These retailers NEED this shopping, to merely survive.

  9. BoogeymanSlayer says:

    Thanks, Jon, for your logical reporting. As soon as I heard the initial story, my intuition said this was suspicious and deserving of scrutiny. You are one of the very few journalists who start at the beginning and determine if the story can or cannot be true.

    If NO virus has ever undergone the gold standard process and verification, is this the same or different? If different, can it be verified, etc. If the initial proposal is false, how can anything afterwards possibly be true?

    You have clearly dissected the C19 stories and detailed how the facts do not support the official story. Your reporting keeps us who think like you, sane. For example, if the earth is round, it cannot also be flat, in terms of the overall geometric shape, and vice verse. In this C19 story, the facts support an agenda that fails to support and actually conflicts with their story.

    Thanks for catching the truth telling and sharing them. I hope you save the web pages when you find your fact gems.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      Jon helped me confirm my early suspicions too!

      I was questioning all of this “malarkey” back in February (and felt all alone in my questioning it). – I knew, then, that something was very seriously wrong with the whole picture. – I smell BS pretty quickly, especially when the main message is: “be fearful, be horrified, do as WE say!”

      • Marilyn Shepherd says:

        I read the first report from Dr Wodag who exposed the 2009 swine flu scamdemic, then started looking for other indie media because the MSM is wall to wall propaganda.

    • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

      Boogy wrote — “For example, if the earth is round, it cannot also be flat, in terms of the overall geometric shape, and vice verse”

      Rick says- Am I to interpret that as an open mind on flat earth? Because I actually do a flat earth blog with pretty good attendance. Additionally– this covid hoax can easily be over-written and buried-in-history if another hoax was exposed. I think the flat-earth-truth could do it. It was very popular a couple of years ago, around 2017. I might label this “asymetric psychological warfare” or APW.

      Asymmetric warfare – Wikipedia
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asynchronous_warfare

      Asymmetric warfare is war between belligerents whose relative military power differs significantly, or whose strategy or tactics differ significantly.

      Rick continues- They present covid hoax. We present a flat earth exposee. Just a thought. Are you interested?

  10. Viva Hoffmann says:

    How about the Governor of California, Paul, who was ordered by Judge Sara Heckman, in November, not to impose any more covid restrictions as they were unconstitutional (California constitution i believe). Doesn’t see to have stopped Newsome though maybe his language has changed so that they aren’t “mandated.”

  11. Donella says:

    I’ll bet some student at the Johns Hopkins news-letter department got a severe spanking and is still sitting in the corner right now while they mull over his Rorschach Test. Perfect crimes must go undetected…YOU IDIOT!!

    Long ago, before cameras were mounted everywhere and tracking apps were just a twinkle in Apple’s eye, I had a casual acquaintance with a guy whose supplementary income was small-time robbery. He said his modus operandi was “when you’re going to pull off any kind of a heist, the first thing you have to is to create a diversion on the other side of town…never fails”.
    He was smarter than he looked.

    • Wilma says:

      Isn’t it interesting that Johns Hopkins was involved with that simulated emergency training back in fall 2019 dealing with a viral public health emergency that probably morphed into the real world applied COVID fear mongering?

    • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

      That’s the way I see it– and Jon’s exposee here, nicely written by the way jOn, is that they’ve relabelled Marx’s “Communist Revolution” as “the Great Reset”. It might be interesting for someone to do a gematria on those.

      Jon’s imaginary dialog could continue as…

      “I have a great idea, Bill. Let’s declare a fake pandemic. We’ll report all sorts of high death numbers. But really, we’ll just be subtracting numbers from other traditional diseases that cause deaths, and we’ll add those numbers to our fake pandemic.”

      “Hey, Frank! Yeah– and during the fake pandemic, while we soften up those damn free entrprisers, we’ll relaunch our Communist Revolution using our tactics… like more control, shutdowns, and social reporting by the people on one another! And we’ll totally destroy Christmas too”.

      “Wow Bill– that’s great. We can call it Communists Working Together!”

      “No, no, Frank. That’s too obvious. Take the word
      Communist out of it and use the word Great… like Trump did with make American great again. Let’s see… Uh… Great Revolution? no no no. Um… Great Reset..? THE Great Reset?”

  13. Haniel Adhar says:

    They retracted the story because it was true.

    Period.

  14. Kia Kaha says:

    Interesting…. I was reviewing this report myself last night, feeling drawn to it as significant. It ties in with many other aspects I’m looking at; the ongoing social engineering, eldercare, the multi-pronged attack on our natural immune system and the inappropriate medical treatment trends vs restoring healthy and powerful individuals within a naturally healthy environment and society.

    According to the CDC, there have been almost 300,000 excess deaths due to COVID-19.
    Aside from naming everything under the sun as RONA….

    How many of those 300,000 deaths can be attributed to early misdiagnosis, didn’t know what disease they were treating, and inappropriate hospital protocols, using intubation via ventilators on lungs that could not withstand the pressure and the high level of psychotropic drugs that would send any normal person already in extreme health trouble over the edge? Sounds more akin to a recipe for euthanasia. Nurses reported patients health returning and a good prognosis when leaving their shift, then shortly after the next shift putting the patient on a ventilator unto their death.

    What disease are we treating?
    4/14/2020

    Is it 5G? Because if it is, they plan on it and vaccines sticking around as if we have to learn to live with it, drug it, live small and die from it. That is not why we are here.

    They since discovered that the blood cells were stacking up and unable to carry oxygen. What the patients needed was pure oxygen. We all do, so masks are not helping but to create more patients. We need oxygen for a number of things, two being clear seeing and clarity of mind. What is causing the blood cells to lack oxygen and stack up instead of flow?

    I’m interested in knowing the cause. Once we know the worldwide cause, we can eliminate it. That is the way to restore our freedom of movement, privacy, etc. I’m not interested in acquiring more diseases, another harmful vaccine to further degrade our natural immune system, nor in perpetuating and monitoring this sickness as if it is here to stay as a cover for other malevolent intentions. Vulture criminals are. They have a history.

      I started looking at RF meters a few years ago but have yet to purchase one and learn to use it. I might update my activity on the front– and get one– and avoid areas where RF is high as in 5G. I’m in Phoenix in a nayberhood that’s not yet 5g’d but I don’t know what I’m driving through. Might install an RF meter in the car and at home… even carry one. Good ones are a few hundred dollars so might start with one.

      5G is 60Ghz.. or less- but it resonates the hemoglobin cell which carries oxygen… thus the shortness of breath in covid-labelled people. Hemoglobin can’t pick up and transport a 5g resonant O2 molecule… thus people fell down in Wuhan. Nobody fell down here yet as reports go but shortness on breath is cited as a symptom.

      IMO, Jon’s citing of many causes for covid-related symptoms is good as it goes but for my tastes, he short-changed 5G– the obvious center of the launch of thousands of 5G antenna in Wuhan and n. Italy. School shutdowns, I’ve seen written about, can’t cite sources off top of head, are for secret 5g antenna installs.

      Invisible Rainbow, famous book on EM pollution- cites numerous case studies through history of increased health problems with tranmitters for EM RF radiation. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it, said Sponge Bob was it? … and it looks like we’re repeating it.

        Rick, and Kia Kaha too

        Good article this morning at needtoknow.news (G. Edward Griffin’s site) about ‘Rona numbers and 5g implementation. Um, NOT from Johns Hopkins, so it might still be there to read! (She was an economist, not a doctor…that’s partly why JH pulled the article.)

        Stacked red blood cells are called “Rouleaux Formation”. Numerous videos show how this can happen in less than a minute with exposure to a S.M.A.R.T. meter. (“5g Apocalypse” is the most recent I’ve seen that comes to mind.). That being said, it doesn’t have to be 5g @ 60GHz to mess up oxygen transport. (And is any 5g in the US right now being broadcast at 60 GHz?? No consumer meters at the present time will measure that high a frequency.)

        Finally, Cory Morningstar at theartofannihilation.com wrote an article in October of this year titled: ‘Mandatory Masks in the Age of Climate Emergency & Planetary Biodiversity Crisis’. In that article is an embedded YouTube video from a post-doctoral researcher reporting the effects of plastic micro fibers on lungs. The fibers come from clothing, (and masks….cloth or ‘surgical’ masks).

        So I was think’n after reading Cory’s article and watching the video: anyone remember way back when this whole thing started in China, and China didn’t know what it was (lol), but many patient’s CT scans had the appearance of ‘broken glass’? And most of those cases were in Wuhan, arguably one of the most polluted cities in the world, where people have worn masks outside, for a long time? Could those ‘broken glass’ infiltrates on CT possibly be plastic microfibers and macrophages (immune cells trying to clean up the fibers) spread throughout the lungs?

        Might explain why some ‘perfectly healthy’ people got the ‘Rona when they flipped on the 5g switch in Wuhan…

        Or it’s the ‘virus’.

          Rick says– ok SMART meters at any frequency can mess up O2 transport? Wow. I have a SMART meter on my gas-meter at the back of the house… I estimate about 10 ft from my inside bedroom– I’ve put up tin-foil & black-out curtain around the side facing my room but maybe we should recap here not only RF meters but RF shielding too. Lots online with RF shielding but I have not been motivated to actually go put stuff on my credit card. Maybe start today with this post.

          • Piksil says:

            Rick:

            It’s distance relative. As I recall, the measured distances were 1 foot away from the SMART meter. (Also, it was not specified which type of meter, but I am going to assume that the RF transmitters are basically similar in electric, gas, water, etc meters.)
            Shielding should help, and distance is your friend.

            Rouleaux Formation is just one of the RBC ‘disruptions’ reported with RF exposure. But that one seems to be the one that could interfere with oxygen transport the most.

            Then throw in all the other documented damage caused by EMR/EMF…..

            I hope to get to the point to be able to accurately assess and remediate our EMFs as much as possible. The sooner the better, I’m sure.

          Yes, Piksil, 5G rollout and Rona spread announced together, obvious clue.

          After making my comment about 5G yesterday, I decided to spend the day looking into the association between 5G and Rona symptoms. 5G can produce flu-like symptoms and way worse. I found several websites of interest.

          They’re onto it. This is when we have the corner and edge pieces so all the familiar puzzle pieces slide more easily into place.

          Rona isn’t a virus, no mask needed, in fact reduces oxygen intake and CO2 exhale, but it is something and it’s lethal. Stacking blood cells unable to carry oxygen, key evidence. Govt misdirection using propaganda as one of their tactics to promote confusion and conflict in the public. Govt uses the word “advancement” to refer to science and tech, but words have 2 meanings, it’s a military term, weaponized.

            Thanks for these links!
            I have ‘Radiation Dangers’ bookmarked, but hadn’t been there in a while. She’s added quite a bit since I read that article. (And nice to see a couple of Jon’s articles quoted as well.)

            Magda Havas and Alison McDowell (wrenchinthegears) bookmarked as well. I think Alison has really tied all of this together, although she won’t say much about the Rona because she says she hasn’t a medical background. But with Rona being a cover for the Great Reset (or 4th Industrial Revolution, Agenda 20 or 30, UN SDGs, NWO, whatever it’s to be labeled as), the Rona part is being covered by others.

            Which goes back to your links. It will be interesting to see if there is a 3rd wave after the vaccine is rolled out. Hopefully some of these researchers will question vaccine ingredients and increased susceptibility to EMFs. Maybe even publish some stats (as long as it’s not on a Johns Hopkins student site!)

            A cabin in the mountains would be nice….maybe one of the only ‘safe’ places left. All natural non-metallic construction might even keep it safe after all the satellites are in place.

      Looking into nursing homes tells a bigger story, how this story ends…

      This is where alopathic “medicine” leads. So many health complications. it’s a combination of social engineering, women out of the home and communities and into the workforce, men out of the country and into wars, always vaccinated, financial manipulation and a narco-government.

      In contrast, my grandmother took care of her mother, my great grandmother, until she was 96 and passed peacefully in her sleep. She had 8 children, lived on a farm, through the depression, always plenty enough, never knew how many would be seated at her table, friends, neighbors…

      Now it’s like this…so little compassion and care. This entire system needs to be arrested so we can establish a way of life that expresses who we are, not who “they” are.

      Creative destruction – Wikipedia
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_destruction

      Creative destruction (German: schöpferische Zerstörung), sometimes known as Schumpeter’s gale, is a concept in economics which since the 1950s has become most readily identified with the Austrian-born economist Joseph Schumpeter who derived it from the work of Karl Marx and popularized it as a theory of economic innovation and the business cycle.

          She still believes in vaccination as an “immune therapy” too, but that does not take away from her position on the subject that “vaccination” should be left to the individual’s own choice, not as a government-mandate.

          • Lyn P says:

            lf this is about Dr. Judy, her conception of vaccines is completely different that the injections we are “programmed” about. Her notions involve oral therapies and no toxic adjuvants.

            Out of so many authors and texts on the topic included there ( which indeed are worth reading) , just the one that explains so well and so logic the entire hoax is missing : JON RAPPOPORT !

          • Jim S Smith says:

            @ Lyn:

            That statement was based on what she told her interviewer in the first Plandemic – The Movie, when asked if she was “anti-vax”, and she said “no”, she supports them as “immune therapies”.

            So to interpret her general answer to the question of “vaccines” (as in “yes, supportive”) did not leave much room for reinterpretation otherwise.

            I am aware that she is not at all supportive of all or even ANY of the toxic adjuvants and stuff that are included in the vaccines. But she has shown support for vaccines in general through that answer.

            She MAY have changed her stance since then, but I have not seen much more that shows me such a change in thinking has taken place.

    • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

      What do people mean when they say “people rise up”? or …”stand against it”? When people say things like that, all I do is take another sip of beer, continue to fix dinner and make sure I have good movement in the morning before I go grocery shopping. I certainly have no vision of what it would mean for me to “rise up” or “stand against”. People I meet who are masked up all over town are not going to rise up. Nobody is going to rise up. There IS no rising up. There’s little people putting up resistance to mask-orders or shut-down orders here and there, reported on nightly news. That’s it.

      Rather than rise up, why not say prepare for war. In this sense, the preppers are more astute. Nobody wants to rise up but everyone in the know wants to prep. I’m prepping. In my own way. But I’m not going to rise up. Forget rising up. Rising up doesn’t work. I don’t wear a mask and humor those who do where I can and wear an exemption lanyard. Minimal resistance, really. And prepping. I like to study Matt Dillon, McGuyver and James Bond.

      Take a look at the “actors” for Event 201, if their site is still up.
      And note that it’s the “Bloomberg School….at Johns Hopkins” as in Michael Bloomberg.
      M Bloomberg’s degree is in electrical engineering, but his specialty is data analytics. He’s elbow deep in this whole reset as well, and has been since before Event 201….most of these technocrats/globalists have been involved well before “The Great Reset” became public. They’ve had a huge head start, and are waaaaaay closer to their ‘reset’ than most think. (Look at how ‘schooling’ has been ‘transformed’ in a little over 10 months in the US. But also look at wrenchinthegears.com or newschoolorder.com and see how this has been a goal that’s been worked on for many years.)

      Yeah, it was nice not seeing Birx for a while….maybe she was in Italy for the winter scarf rollout, hiding in her basement a la Biden, or channeling Louis Pasteur… whatever….I missed her like a kidney stone.

      I think we may see UN military forces on American soil….as well as US troops. Not sure which would be worse.

        But Johns Hopkins is also part of the effort.

        You may also remember some of their “findings” in the lead up to this SHAM-demic, and all of these “proposed solutions” we are living under right now too.

        I have had some serious questions about Johns Hopkins for a long time, just as with most of the other “big universities and institutes” – especially when looking at the large list of “donors” and other super-rich “philanthropists”.

        They are ALL in the same bed, regardless.

            And THAT’s where I go looking, by following an old maxim: “Follow the money”.

            – “He who pays the piper, names the tune.

            THAT’s why it is always wise to be on the lookout for “who” pays for the “research” done, and how they may benefit from the (pre-concluded) “results”.

            When a fully-fledged research project costs so much money to conduct, wouldn’t you think that there is an open door for anyone with the money, and with a commercial interest at the end – simply “buy their way in”?

            Anytime I see the term “stake-holders” at any of these confabs, that IS also a red-flag with me, because to them, apparently: We are all just “trespassers” on their (commercially-owned) planet.

            This is entirely a mindset of the globo-psychopaths who want it all. Right and wrong be damned!

  25. Lewis Papier says:

    The Johns Hopkins Newsletter made three main points in retracting Genevieve Briand’s article.

    1. The first appears like character assassination: As assistant director for the Master’s in Applied Economics program at Hopkins, Briand is neither a medical professional nor a disease researcher.

    2. The second is broken into two parts which perhaps someone can explain what their argument is. What’s wrong with using percentages?

    a. Briand was quoted in the article as saying, “All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers.” This claim is incorrect and does not take into account the spike in raw death count from all causes compared to previous years. According to the CDC, there have been almost 300,000 excess deaths due to COVID-19.

    b. Additionally, Briand presented data of total U.S. deaths in comparison to COVID-19-related deaths as a proportion percentage, which trivializes the repercussions of the pandemic. This evidence does not disprove the severity of COVID-19; an increase in excess deaths is not represented in these proportionalities because they are offered as percentages, not raw numbers.

    3. The third is merely minimizing the importance of pre-existing conditions and attributing everything to Covid (The standard specious argument without substantiation): Briand also claimed in her analysis that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may be incorrectly categorized as COVID-19-related deaths. However, COVID-19 disproportionately affects those with preexisting conditions, so those with those underlying conditions are statistically more likely to be severely affected and die from the virus.

      These “points of contention” make absolutely NO MENTION of the willful “liberalizing of the COVID statistics”, as mentioned not only by Barbara Birx, Anthony Fauci, but also published on the CDC’s own website in their memo from early March – in an emphasized text – that “No laboratory test or confirmation was needed”! – Basically, if the treating doctor “felt” that the deceased “may have had COVID”, that the doctor was instructed to just put “COVID” on the death certificate!

    I dared my husband not to wear his mask in LA county today since he was heading up there to do business. He decided to attempt this at a Starbucks… They were immediately alarmed by him and he was told to put his mask on and be thoughtful to other guests. He went on to tell them that it wasn’t real, a true hoax and that he felt sorry that people haven’t figured it out yet. He did in the end pull a mask on to actually get his coffee, but he felt good about doing his small part to crack people’s solid unwavering beliefs about the lie. I as well try to talk to people about it each day anywhere I go… Most of the time, where our home is in the countryside of San Diego, people know what is going on and agree it is a hoax. LA county is trying to keep people inside, scared, and from talking about the truth. This is turning lots of people into paranoid sheep.

    From: coreysdigs.com
    COVID-19 Pt. 2: CDC’s New “PIC” and The Hidden Data
    “Most people aren’t aware that the CDC has lumped influenza together with Covid and pneumonia in death rates with a new name called “PIC.” This comes after the CDC confirmed that only 6% of Covid-related death certificates indicate Covid as the only cause, while 94% list other illnesses as the cause with an average of 2.6 comorbidities. In other words, if someone was in the hospital dying of heart disease and they tested everyone for Covid to separate them to other rooms or wings, Covid was marked on their death certificate. A perfect example of this is a nurse Corey’s Digs recently spoke with who had four deaths at her hospital. Two were in hospice care, one died of stage four cancer, and the other died of end stage COPD, but all four were documented as having Covid, so those deaths get added to the tallies being told to the public, who are none the wiser. What does that do to the actual statistics….”

      Makes the death statistics virtually meaningless, much like how the Climate Research Unit of East Anglia University did to the raw temperature data – so as to make their “climate models” look more like the Earth really is warming up (and has been for centuries – by their “model”).

      One of the biggest cardinal sins when talking about statistics: Use the raw, collected data as is for the calculations. Any such pre-alterations of the collected data, makes any result from using them dubious at best, and totally fictitious at worst.

    Everybody go back and watch the 90s film:
    “Wag the Dog”. The tail, or should I say the tale, is wagging the dog big time.

      His tail tells.
      His tail tells a tale.”

    Jon, when I posted the link to your post to lewrockwell on Facebook, the “fact-checked” the post as False Information and provided link to their “fact-checkers” –

    I don’t have the expertise to analyze their arguments, but it there seems to be a lot of obfuscation there with dueling interpretations of the data. Maybe another blog post dissecting this?

      This I gotta see!

      If anyone around here is a very tough act to follow, when it comes to “fact-checking”, they have their work cut out for them if they really want to tangle with Jon!

      Perhaps I ought to try my hand at debunking these ‘debunkers’? I took on a few such “educated” some years ago. “They” would never cede ground to the fact that I PWNED them, using their OWN words to boot.

      Jon will have no problems here, I’m very sure of that.

    I’m a bit late to the party, but…

    In brief, one of Dr. Briand’s main conclusions, that Covid-19 has NOT increased the number of U.S. deaths, is directly contradicted by readily available CDC data. Therefore it is surprising that the newsletter has achieved such notoriety.

    In the 2nd paragraph of Dr. Briand’s newsletter she states, “From mid-March to mid-September, U.S. total deaths have reached 1.7 million”, without mentioning that the corresponding total for 2019 was 1.43 million. That’s almost a 20% increase. Significant, don’t you think?

    All the more surprising, then, that the author concludes, “Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary.”

    They found no evidence, evidently because they didn’t look very hard. No wonder the newsletter was retracted!

    Deaths from all causes so far this year have *already* reached almost 3 million, compared with about 2.85 million for the whole of last year. And that’s with two weeks left in the year, plus the weeks-long lag in data reaching the CDC. Total deaths this year will likely reach about 3.2 million. Roughly a 12% increase on last year.

    Data source: CDC
    https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Weekly-Counts-of-Deaths-by-State-and-Select-Causes/muzy-jte6

    See for yourself. Download (export) the above spreadsheet and sum ‘All Cause’ deaths for 2020 and Jurisdiction = United States. As of now, the total is 2,999,326.

    You can also verify the numbers I gave above for mid-March to mid-September by summing weeks 12-38 for 2019 and 2020.

    Note also the large increase in weekly deaths compared to 2019, beginning in week 13. For example, in week 15 (w/e 11th April), 78,998 Americans died this year vs. 55,636 last year. So much for Dr. Briand’s “Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers.”
