CDC dinner High risk Indoor Intelwars Parade Thanksgiving

CDC urges Americans to avoid Thanksgiving parades, large indoor gatherings

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations for Americans planning festivities for the Thanksgiving holiday in November, deeming crowded parades and large indoor gatherings to be “higher risk activities” due to COVID-19.

What are the details?

The guidance suggests that “staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others,” but to be aware of the risks involved “if you must travel.”

It also lists traditional activities in categories from lower to moderate to higher risk.

Higher risk activities include:

  • Going shopping in crowded stores just before, on, or after Thanksgiving
  • Participating or being a spectator at a crowded race
  • Attending crowded parades
  • Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgment and increase risky behaviors
  • Attending large indoor gatherings with people from outside of your household

Small outdoor gatherings, visiting pumpkin patches and attending small outdoor sporting events are considered moderate risk activities, and lower risk activities listed include having a small dinner with only the people who live in your household, or having a virtual dinner rather than meeting for the holiday in person.

Before the CDC issued its memo, Macy’s announced that it would modify its famous Thanksgiving Day parade this year due to COVID-19, saying the procession will not be live. It will be viewed only on television and without spectators on the streets of New York City as it has for the past 90-plus years.

Fox News reported:

Out-of-state marching bands will have to wait until 2021 to participate, and local musical performers will take their place. The total number of participants will be down 75% from last year, Macy’s said, and those who do participate will be socially distanced and wear face masks.

The Thanksgiving guidelines were issued by the CDC after the agency warned against trick-or-treating for Halloween in 2020, deeming it higher risk along with trunk-or-treat events, hayrides, and other festivities associated with the fall celebration.

The Hill noted Monday that the coronavirus pandemic “has infected more than 7.1 million and killed 204,905 people in the U.S.,” according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

blaming young people CDC Conspiracy Fact and Theory Coronavirus COVID-19 deadly Dr. Robert Redfield Fear gin up fear hand washing Headline News intelligent virus Intelwars LIES Mainstream media mask wearing Mutations occult ritual panic Prepare propaganda second lockdown

Coronavirus Mutations? Or More MSM Fear Mongering?

The coronavirus has apparently mutated and is more contagious than before when the rulers shut down the economy back in March.  It isn’t more deadly, but it can now survive hand washing and face masks ritualistically worn by almost everyone now.

Tyrants: “Prepare To Wear Masks & Socially Distance Even After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine”

A new COVID-19 mutation appears to be even more contagious, according to a study — and experts say it could be a response by the virus to defeat masks and other social-distancing efforts, as reported by Fox News. That means the cases are continuing to rise even though the public is masked and obeying social distancing guidelines.

[WATCH] Social Distancing is a “CIA Protocol” That Amounts To Torture

David Morens, a virologist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that the new study should not be over-interpreted, but added that the virus could be responding to public health interventions such as social distancing.

“All those things are barriers to transmissibility, or contagion, but as the virus becomes more contagious it statistically is better at getting around those barriers,” he said.

Morens noted that this could mean that the virus might continue to mutate even after a vaccine is available, meaning the vaccine will have to be tinkered with – just as the flu vaccine is altered each year. –The Guardian

Experts also want you to know that cases are on the rise.  At a hearing before Congress on Wednesday, Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), emphasized data that shows that young Americans have been driving the rise in cases. According to Redfield, people aged 18 to 25 have made up 26% of new coronavirus cases – the largest of any age group. (This sounds like an excuse to lockdown everyone for this phony casedemic, but take that information as you will.)

Redfield also said more than 90% of the American population remains susceptible to COVID-19, crushing any belief about widespread immunity developing.

This seems to be an attempt to in up some fear and manufacture consent for another lockdown. Hopefully, Americans don’t fall for this again.

CDC Intelwars Matthew irvin Oregon coronavirus Oregon covid Youngest covid victim

Oregon’s youngest COVID-19 victim did not actually have the virus, according to CDC test

An Oregon family is searching for answers after new testing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that their son, once presumed to be the youngest COVID-19 victim in the state, did not actually have the virus.

What are the details?

Matthew Irvin, 26, died suddenly in early July after falling severely ill just a few days prior. At the time, state health officials said his death was likely the result of the coronavirus due simply to the fact that he displayed several of the symptoms.

According to KGW-TV, Irvin was listed as the state’s youngest coronavirus victim.

“When including him in the death count, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) used information from Irvin’s death certificate, which listed COVID-19 as a cause or significant condition contributing to his death,” the news outlet said. “The state reports people who died from the disease and with the disease as the same thing. It says it’s in line with national recommendations from the CDC.”

But the family was always suspicious of the diagnosis. None of Irvin’s co-workers, family members or roommates tested positive for the virus, the family said. A coronavirus test administered at the hospital during Irvin’s emergency room visit came back negative, the outlet reported.

And now, according to the family and the state medical examiner’s office, new CDC testing proves conclusively that he did not have the virus. After an independent autopsy came back inconclusive, the family sent a sample of Irvin’s lung tissue to the health agency, and the CDC’s examination showed no evidence of COVID-19.

On Wednesday, the Oregon Health Authority announced Irvin had been removed from the state’s coronavirus death toll list.

What else?

The family said their experience could be just one example of many in the state where medical professionals and health officials got it wrong.

“They did blood tests and his white blood cell count was elevated so they said it looked COVID-like, basically,” Irvin’s mother, Kimberly Irvin, told the local news outlet. “From early on I felt that the COVID diagnosis was incorrect.”

The family wanted an autopsy conducted immediately after his death, but the state medical examiner’s office reportedly refused, saying it was understaffed. Yamhill County also refused to do an autopsy, the report noted.

“They didn’t look at it differently. They assumed it was COVID and should have done an autopsy to find out why this young man died,” said Irvin’s stepfather, Michael Laheyne.

In search for answers, the family hired a private pathologist to conduct an autopsy. It came back inconclusive, the report stated, but the pathologist said Irvin’s passing was related to a quickly progressing lung issue, and blood clots. It was also at this time that Irvin’s lung tissue was sent to the CDC for testing.

Anything else?

Other stories about inaccurate coronavirus death toll listings have circulated since the beginning of the pandemic, raising speculation that the coronavirus numbers in America may be inflated.

TheBlaze has covered some of the inaccurate reporting in Florida, which allegedly include a 20-year-old who died in a motorcycle crash, a 60-year-old who died from a gunshot wound to his head, and a 77-year-old who died of Parkinson’s disease.

Then, in late August, the CDC published a report stating that just 6% of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. list the only cause of death as coronavirus without any other comorbidities.

CDC Cdc halloween Coronavirus halloween Halloween Intelwars Trick-or-treating

CDC says trick-or-treating is too ‘high risk,’ suggests small ‘open-air costume parades where participants can remain 6 feet apart’ instead

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has put a major damper on forthcoming fall festivities with its newly released guidelines for celebrating Halloween amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses,” the guidelines state, adding that Americans will need to practice the October tradition differently this year.

Among the traditional activities considered to be no-no’s by the health agency are trick-or-treating, crowded costume parties, haunted houses, and even rural fall festivals. So essentially everything fun that many Americans associate with the holiday.

Here’s the full list of “higher risk activities”:

  • Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
  • Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots
  • Attending crowded costume parties held indoors
  • Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming
  • Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household
  • Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgement and increase risky behaviors
  • Traveling to a rural fall festival that is not in your community if you live in an area with community spread of COVID-19

Fortunately, the CDC has not left Americans without ways to celebrate, but made sure to suggest “several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween.”

Of course, these suggestions all account for proper sanitation and usually involve people staring awkwardly at each other from at least six feet away.

Among the agency’s suggested “lower risk” or “moderate risk” activities are:

  • Small group, open-air costume parades where participants can remain six feet apart;
  • Outdoor costume parties where protective masks are used and social distancing is required;
  • Outdoor movie nights
  • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
  • Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
  • Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with

The guidelines also made sure to clarify that costume masks don’t count as protective face coverings, for all the clever kids who thought they’d be able to kill two birds with one stone.

“A costume mask (such as for Halloween) is not a substitute for a cloth mask,” the guidelines note. “A costume mask should not be used unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face.”

“Do not wear a costume mask over a protective cloth mask because it can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe,” the guidelines add.

“Instead,” it continues, one should “consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.”

CDC covid Intelwars Mask mandate Masks Redfield Robert redfield

Commentary: Suddenly masks are more effective than vaccines? Thousands of doctors are likely surprised to hear that.

Your doctor has clearly been trying to kill you all along. Or is suicidal. Or both. Other than that, situation normal. Everything’s fine. We’re all fine here. How are you?

I know that because the director of the CDC, Dr. Robert Redfield, told me so this week when he said masks are even better than vaccines. Because I simply don’t remember a flu season when I saw doctors regularly wearing masks as a routine preventive measure. Not at casual doctor’s office visits (where the flu is more dangerous to children than COVID). Not at parent-teacher conferences or youth sports games (my God, why do doctors hate children so much?). Not at the golf course (foursome or death wish? You decide).

What utter psychopaths. They spend all day telling you to lose weight, eat better, and stop smoking, only to go out in the world and breathe hellfire into the universe.

Clearly, doctors should never, ever be able to take their masks off from now on, especially since we have learned so much cool woke science since March. I mean, Karen has reliably told me that I have to wear a mask so the virus doesn’t jump the six degrees of separation between me and Kevin Bacon. Meanwhile, should I spend time exercising outside in the vitamin D-packed sunshine, I risk infecting my grandma, who is riddled with co-morbidities.

And I think I can speak for all of us when I say thank Allah for Karen’s nagging persistence on that front. Such a blessing. Redfield is only now catching up with her wisdom.

So what the hell, doc?! You are meeting with my co-morbid grandma and everyone else’s co-morbid grandma in your practice every single day, as the flu just plays Russian roulette with the maskless lot of you? Have you no decency? Have you no shame? It’s just if you were conducting open heart surgery without a mask on, coughing your foulness into a vulnerable chest cavity. May as well at this point. Clearly nothing matters to you monsters.

In a way, we are all chest cavities now. So the doctor without a 24/7 mask on, no matter where he goes and no matter what he does, is basically no better than a jihadist. Are we all clear on this? I mean, it’s just science. And the science, as always, is settled. Until it’s a very fluid situation, of course.

Hard to believe a medical establishment that was finally getting it right on the fact that a man can have a uterus has been so in the dark about the fact we beat the Black Plague with masks.

Perhaps all doctors should now live together in communes if they can’t otherwise embrace the seriousness of their craft. What a failure the Hippocratic Oath has been, not to mandate that doctors wear masks at all times all these years. Clearly, lives of chastity, poverty, and total obedience may be in order to bring greater focus and irrational obsession to keeping me safe from everything I imagine that isn’t remotely real.

The doctor has spoken. All hail the mask. Now pass the Kool-Aid and give me something cool like a comet to worship.

CDC Coronavirus Coronavirus conflicts Intelwars Mask mandates

Horowitz: CDC Director Redfield says masks are better than a vaccine. But the virus is still spreading in masked-up places.

Distribution of a vaccination was supposed to be the candy castle at the end of the Candyland coronavirus journey for all of us. We were told our lives must remain in shambles and our faces must be covered until there is a vaccine. Well, in one fell swoop, whether he meant to say this or not, CDC Director Robert Redfield told a Senate panel that the post-vaccine situation on the ground will be less stable than the current untenable situation in America.

In what is perhaps the most cloddish comment to be uttered by a public official since March, Redfield went out of his way to tell a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday that masks are better than vaccines. “They are our best defense,” said Redfield in response to a question from Senator Jack Reed (D-R.I.). He added, “I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine, because the immunogenicity may be 70 percent, and if I don’t get an immune response, the vaccine is not going to protect me. This face mask will.”

We have been living through months of universal mask-wearing in many parts of the country and the world, yet the virus is spreading prolifically. Japan, Hong Kong, Israel, France, Peru, Philippines, Hawaii, California, and Miami are just a few examples of places with prolific spread long after very strict mask mandates and high compliance were in place. Is that better than a vaccine? Is Redfield suggesting that a vaccine would net an even worse result?

On the one hand, government officials are panicking about continuing community spread throughout the country and the world long after the mask mandates were in place. On the other hand, Redfield is saying that masks are more effective than a vaccine. I guess that means that even if we immediately obtained the best vaccine imaginable, we would actually have even more cases than we do now? In other words, a vaccine is worthless. Unless it’s the masks that are actually worthless, as Redfield himself said clearly, regarding the idea of healthy people wearing them everywhere.

You see, masks are so effective that the CDC recommends that someone exposed to an infected individual indoors quarantine even if both the infected individual and the exposed person were wearing masks. But if both of them have something that offers more protection than even a vaccine does, then what is there to fear?

We literally have the CDC going from saying in May that there is “no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks” to the idea that masks are better than a vaccine. Well, if we are all “vaccinated” by wearing masks, then why do we continue with all the other shutdowns and restrictions? Why aren’t there thousands of people at sports games?

The bureaucrats are willing to insult our intelligence to the point that they think there is no limit to our suspension of disbelief. It’s one thing to suggest that masks might be a little more effective than they originally thought. But how are we to believe that they went from 0 to 100 without any political considerations when the politicians are sounding the alarm about the spread of cases long after the mask mandates? In fact, during a February hearing, Redfield went so far as to encourage people not to buy medical-grade masks, saying there’s “no role for these masks in the community.” From “no role” to “the most important” tool – and we are to believe this is about science and not politics?

Until now, officials might have been able to explain away the spread in places like Hawaii with the speculative, unverifiable assertion that perhaps without mask-wearing, the spread in some of these places would have been even worse. But Redfield now contends that mask-wearing is more effective than a vaccine. How in the world could such a mass spread of the virus occur if that were true? And how could Sweden have achieved such a flat curve and reduced its cases to negligible numbers without a vaccine and without harnessing what Redfield said is “the most important, powerful public health tool we have”?

Then again, if you are in possession of the most powerful tool, wouldn’t you learn how to use it properly? While Redfield was extolling the magical, mythical powers of the mask, he took the mask he had been wearing from an unsterile table and touched the inside and outside without washing his hands. Presumably, that was the mask he put back on when he exited the hearing, in violation of every protocol of one-time mask use, hand-washing, and disposing of the mask. Perhaps that is why the virus is spreading more than ever despite the near-universal use of a “tool” that is supposedly better than a vaccine.

Finally, now that Redfield believes that “this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine,” why do I need to wear one? If I don’t get the flu vaccine this year, that doesn’t make Redfield more in danger of getting the flu. If he is wearing his coat of protection, shouldn’t that be even more effective, regardless of how others choose to exercise their rights over their own bodies?

CDC centers for disease control and prevention COVID-19 face masks Intelwars Mask mandate Robert redfield

CDC director says masks are more effective against COVID-19 than a vaccine. Months earlier, he said the opposite.

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that masks are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — even more effective than a vaccine.

Director Robert Redfield, testifying before a Senate committee, urged everyone in America to wear masks in public, saying the pandemic could be controlled in six to 12 weeks if everyone complied.

“These face masks are the most important, powerful public health tool we have,” Redfield said. “And I will continue to appeal to all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings. I’ve said it, if we did it for six, eight, 10, 12 weeks, we’d bring this pandemic under control. These, actually — we have clear scientific evidence that they work, and they are our best defense.

“I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine, because immunogenicity may be 70% and if I don’t get an immune response, the vaccine is not going to protect me. This face mask will,” Redfield continued.

The messaging from the federal government about face masks has been — and continues to be — all over the map. In February, Redfield testified before Congress and was specifically asked if healthy people should wear masks.

Redfield answered, “no.”

Redfield and other top public health officials have repeatedly stressed to the public that the purpose of masks is not self-protection, but rather preventing a person from spreading the virus to others. His Wednesday comments directly contradict that and could further undermine public confidence in a pending vaccine that people are already wary of.

“Most face masks do not effectively filter small particles from the air and do not prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales.” Redfield wrote on Aug. 25. “The role of face masks is for patient source control, to prevent contamination of the surrounding area when a person coughs or sneezes.”

Adding to the confusion, President Donald Trump defended the fact that he doesn’t often wear masks during a televised town hall event Tuesday night.

“A lot of people don’t want to wear masks,” Trump said. “A lot of people think that masks are not good.”

Immediately before he said that, the president criticized Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has no governmental role or authority, for not instituting a national mask mandate.

“Well, I do wear them when I have to, and when I’m in hospitals and other locations,” Trump said. “But I will say this: They said at the Democrat convention they’re going to do a national mandate. They never did it, because they’ve checked out and they didn’t do it. And a good question is, you ask why Joe Biden–they said we’re going to do a national mandate on masks.”

Americans bill bloodstream CDC Coronavirus COVID-19 Department of Defense Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Federal Reserve Force Forecasting free vaccine Headline News health care workers Intelwars mandatory Military plans released playbook Prepare Robert redfield store food toxic concoction vaccinated everyone vaccnine vital workers

The Government Has Released Their Initial Plans To Force a Vaccine on EVERYONE

Earlier today, the Trump administration released its plans to vaccine everyone in a short time.  Three potential vaccines are currently in Stage 3 trials in the United States and could be ready in weeks, President Donald Trump said Tuesday.

Time is running out. And Trump has the military lined up and ready to distribute this vaccine to the public, whether you want it or not. The plan is to distribute the vaccine first to health care and other vital workers, as well as those most vulnerable (likely the older populations). After production ramps up, it will be made available to all Americans who want it. If you decide you don’t want it, don’t worry, the military will help convince you.

The Department of Defense and federal health agencies have outlined plans for a coronavirus vaccine, which includes having them available for free for all Americans. We have warned that the DoD is about to become the enemy of the public. Instead of committing terrorism abroad, they will be going that here. Prepare yourself.

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

This toxic concoction will also be “free.” The government says they will foot the bill (borrow money from the Federal Reserve) to get everyone vaccinated, according to the Watauga Democrat. 

“Preparing for the implementation of the safe and efficacious COVID-19 vaccine programs is a critical next step in the efforts to protect Americans and reduce the impact of COVID-19 and restore our normal way of life,” Centers for Disease Control and Director Dr. Robert Redfield said Wednesday, according to CNN.

The plans came in the form of a report to Congress and a “playbook” for states and local governments, according to the Associated Press and Fox News. The agencies are looking at January for a potential beginning of a vaccination campaign, although it remains possible that this could come later this year.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s playbook, the vaccination campaign will be “much larger in scope and complexity than seasonal influenza or other previous outbreak-related vaccination responses.”

President Trump said in a “Fox & Friends” interview Tuesday that a vaccine could be approved “in a matter of weeks.”

Time is almost up. Once this vaccine gets into your bloodstream, you cannot take it back out. This one is different from every other vaccine made, and it’s going to be necessary if you want to get groceries or leave your house. Mandatory or not, they will do what they can to convince you to take this vaccine.

Stay alert and be prepared.

bill gates CDC covid COVID-19 Covid-19 vaccine FDA Intelwars

Bill Gates says he isn’t sure he can trust the FDA on a coronavirus vaccine

For months, liberals who have fought against all attempts to reopen the economy have insisted that it would be irresponsible to allow any public activity (other than riots) until a vaccine is developed and distributed.

Now that it seems possible (albeit unlikely) that such a vaccine may be ready for distribution, many of those same people have shifted gears to say that any vaccine released under the oversight of the Trump administration is not to be trusted anyway — and now Bill Gates has joined the chorus of liberals actively attempting to undermine public confidence in any potential vaccine and thus discourage participation in a vaccination program.

In an interview with Bloomberg Television, Gates said that he doesn’t trust either the Food and Drug Administration, which is responsible for public oversight of vaccines, or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, when it comes to providing responsible oversight over the development of a COVID-19 vaccine.

“We saw with the completely bungled plasma statements that when you start pressuring people to say optimistic things, they go completely off the rails. The FDA lost a lot of credibility there,” Gates said. Gates’ comments were an apparent reference to controversy over the effectiveness of blood plasma in treatment of the coronavirus.

Gates went on, “Historically, just like the CDC was viewed as the best in the world, the FDA had that same reputation as a top-notch regulator. But there’s been some cracks with some of the things they’ve said at the commissioner level.”

Gates did say in the interview that he eventually expects a safe and effective vaccine to emerge from the process, but he did not elaborate on what might cause him to trust the FDA’s or CDC’s oversight of the process.

Presumably, however, a change in the White House would cause Gates to change his tune, as Gates has been a strong proponent of vaccination for other diseases worldwide.

Gates is far from alone among liberals in this refrain. Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris stirred controversy earlier this month when she stated that she would not take any vaccine that was released before the election. “The View” cohost Joy Behar likewise engaged in some conspiracy theorizing last week when she stated that she would not take the vaccine until Ivanka Trump took it first.

Fauci’s Warning: “Hunker Down” Over Winter, Second Lockdown Coming

Dr. Anthony Fauci alluded to a second lockdown, saying Americans need to “hunker down” this winter because COVID-19 is “not going to be easy.” This is all about control, as the mainstream media reports that coronavirus cases remain “unacceptably high” as schools and restaurants reopen, and flu season approaches.

We have already been warned that a “darkest winter” is in store for us, could that include another lockdown? Most likely. Prepare for it now, because autumn is quickly approaching. We have also already been told they are planning a second lockdown, so that might be something to at least make preparations for right now.

“We need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it’s not going to be easy,” Fauci said during a panel discussion with Harvard Medical School on Thursday according to Market Watch The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases drew on his experience (and fraud) battling the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s, which began with a handful of cases before becoming a global pandemic that has caused tens of millions of deaths and infected more than 70 million people worldwide in the decades since. For an in-depth look at who Fauci really is, check out the documentary, Plandemic. This documentary has been heavily censored all over the internet but can be watched here. 

The psychopath Fauci also warned that we should expect the worse, and not hold out hope that these tyrants will stop committing terrorism against us. “We’ve been through this before,” he said. “Don’t ever, ever underestimate the potential of the pandemic. And don’t try and look at the rosy side of things.”

“I keep looking at that curve, and I get more depressed and more depressed about the fact that we never really get down to the baseline that I’d like,” he said.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Robert Redfield also recently warned that Americans are in for “the worst fall, from a public health perspective, we’ve ever had, citing concerns of a possible “twindemic” of COVID-19 cases and the seasonal flu both overwhelming hospitals. The flu has seen between 140,000 and 810,000 people hospitalized each year since 2010, and is responsible for between 12,000 and 61,000 deaths a year. –Market Watch

It sure looks like they are advertising and ramping up the propaganda for another lockdown.  Be alert, and prepared, but don’t fear. These tyrants feed off of your fear, and this COVID-19 scare is nothing more than that and their own statistics prove it.

Cares act CDC CURRENT EVENTS Evictions federal agencies Intelwars

CDC Declares Itself Landlord of All Rental Property in America

“So great moreover is the regard of the law for private property, that it will not authorize the least violation of it; no, not even for the general good of the whole community. In vain may it be urged, that the good of the individual ought to yield to that of the community; for it would be dangerous to allow any private man, or even any public tribunal, to be the judge of this common good, and to decide whether it be expedient or no. Besides, the public good is in nothing more essentially interested, than in the protection of every individual’s private rights.”
– William Blackstone 

In response to the economic suffering brought about in large measure by its own actions taken in response to the COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has now claimed for itself the power to prevent landlords from controlling their own rental properties.

As first reported by zerohedge.com, the CDC announced last Tuesday that it was suspending most evictions from rental property at least through the end of 2020.

The zerohedge story reports that in a phone call with the media, CDC officials “said the order will apply to Americans who qualified for direct payments under the CARES Act.”

CARES Act — the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act — is the $2 trillion stimulus package passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump on March 27, 2020. The economic aid package included assistance for renters unable to pay their rent as a result of government reaction to the coronavirus outbreak.

As for how this new bureaucratic fiat differs from the CARES Act, zerohedge reports:

Under the CARES Act, only renters in federally-backed rental units were protected from eviction. This covers any rental unit in United States, so long as the renter meets those requirements, where they’ve demonstrated that they are at risk of becoming evicted,” an official said. There’s also currently a moratorium on evictions for federally-backed, single family home mortgages.

In order to qualify for eviction protections, renters will need to download and fill out several forms provided by the CDC on its website. Renters will then give the completed forms directly to their landlord.

An official quoted in the zerohedge report said, “This will be a declaration presented to the landlord, if that landlord approaches a tenant with an intent to evict.” Should a landlord refuse to allow the CDC to exercise control of his property, the landlord’s failure to comply with the mandate “would become a criminal offense,” the CDC official added.

In cases of a dispute between the landlord and the tenant seeking to avoid eviction, the CDC official said these cases would be heard in local courts.

One would look in vain to find authority over private contracts and private property granted to any branch of the federal government, much less to some agency of dubious purpose such as the CDC.

In a report on the new edict published at the Mises Institute, Jeff Diest quotes an unnamed “federal official” trying to explain how the CDC’s reach should rightly extend to private property and the ability of individuals to execute and enforce contracts:

Congress has delegated broad authority to HHS, the Surgeon General and CDC, to take reasonable efforts to combat the spread of communicable diseases, and frankly I think it makes sense for those authorities abroad because we don’t know for any given situation or scenario what steps will be needed to stop the spread. I think, in this particular order, the CDC has made a very compelling case that it is quite problematic at this particular time. It’s focused on this particular pandemic, which is obviously the uniquely powerful grasp in the nation’s entire history in terms of the effect it’s had that for a bunch of reasons in particular, that the home has been sort of the focal point of people social distancing and building, sort of a safe space themselves over the past few months, and also the fact that if people get kicked out, they may end up in overcrowded congregated living facilities or homeless shelters, and that is a potential recipe for a big spread of COVID-19.

Wow. Well, that would surely satisfy Samuel Adams or Patrick Henry.

It should be noted by everyone who values republican government and the concept that the only legitimate government is a government that acts with the consent of the governed, that the CDC’s seizure of power over private property was not approved by Congress. In fact, there was no oversight by the representatives of the people whatsoever. This decree is, by any definition of the word, tyrannical.

It is no exaggeration to say that liberty in the United States today is not under attack from one, single identifiable despot, but from hundreds of federal agencies and commissions, each of which is tacitly allowed by Congress and the president to exercise immense legislative, executive, and judicial power.

What is relevant to Americans today is the realization that such consolidation of government authority, in the hands of one (or many) agents of the federal government, is tyrannical and will eventual lead to the denial of the full panoply of rights all of which should be shielded from bureaucratic despotism.

Finally, apart from the accumulation of powers being accomplished by these alphabet agencies, there is another aspect of this growth of government that is anathema to our republican form of government.

One of the royal abuses of power in the “long train” listed by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence seems to accurately describe these agencies’ autocratic agenda. “He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance,” Jefferson wrote.

And, as Jefferson warned at another time, “It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. 173 despots would surely be as oppressive as one.”

In fact, it would be preferable that the authority of land owners to protect their property — and the livelihood that property affords them and their families — had been usurped by a single presidential tyrant or even 535 tyrants in the legislative branch, as at least those people are subject to election by the people and theoretically the people could run the tyrants out of office by refusing to reelect them. The officials at the CDC, however, are subject to no control by the people of the United States and cannot be held accountable by them, no matter how despotic their decrees become.

CDC Eviction moratorium Illegal order Intelwars President Trump property rights

Horowitz: Venezuela in America: CDC to confiscate property rights with new anti-eviction order

“Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.” ~James Madison

Rational thought, constitutional rights, basic freedoms, and ability to breathe unmasked air have been axed at the altar of the coronavirus cult. Now, it appears that the CDC has the power to destroy the property rights of landlords and force them to house chosen classes of people on their property, contrary to contractual agreements. We fought a revolution over this issue.

On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that the CDC will put a moratorium on all private lease evictions in the United States until December 31. Which, in this day and age, will likely mean that a government canceling of rent or evictions to some degree will be enshrined as a permanent policy of government.

After reading various headlines reporting the announcement, you might have thought this was referring to federally run housing units or at least rentals or mortgages backed by the federal government. Nope. The federal government is suspending all private rental evictions for individuals earning less than $99,000 or families earning less than $198,000. In other words, it is confiscating the private property rights of countless American businessmen who are struggling just as much as renters.

We have heard incessant accusations from this administration and other Republicans that Joe Biden and the Democrats will transform this country into a socialist hellhole. But if this order is not socialist, than the term has no meaning. At least the eviction cancellation provision of the CARES Act in March was passed by a legislative body and only applied to federally funded housing, such as mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This is an unaccountable executive action governing strictly private contracts.

The order will formally be published in the Federal Register on Friday.

Extra shocking, this order comes at a time when government is handing out free funding to everyone. So if officials plan to keep the country afloat through servicing debt, why is there a need to harm landlords? With all the handouts going around, they should just give the tenants the money to pay the landlords. Now government is taking its redistribution scheme a step further by using citizens’ private property for handouts.

“President Trump is committed to helping hardworking Americans stay in their homes and combating the spread of the coronavirus,” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said during a briefing announcing the order on Tuesday.

Again, how is this different from Joe Biden – both in the approach to the virus and to economics? How about cutting off funding in the budget bill later this month to all states that continue the lockdown so we don’t continue to suffer the economic collapse fueling the rent crisis in the first place? If more states were like South Dakota, we wouldn’t have to worry about evictions. Alternatively, how about at least conditioning the federal eviction cancellation only to states exempting landlords from property taxes this year? Why should property owners have to suffer for government malfeasance?

What will happen with private rental businesses is the same thing government bailouts, mandates, subsidies, and confiscations do to every other industry. It will chase small-scale landowners out of the rental business and suck these properties into the grasp of corporate real estate moguls who have the economies of scale to deal with the eviction problems, gobble up the government relief programs, and use cheap prices to purchase property from desperate small-scale sellers.

This latest grab of power to terminate private contracts exemplifies the broader violation of the national social compact, expressed in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Constitution. The government now controls our lives, liberty, and property without any due process or even legislative process or public input. It can just declare any long-term progressive goal vital to stopping the spread of the virus without showing any evidence of necessity, effectiveness, or constitutionality.

Whether it’s mandating the covering of our humanity with masks, the shutting of businesses and churches, the confiscation of land, or the release of violent criminals from prison, it’s all for the public good – and can be done by any executive authority. The CDC’s acting chief of staff asserted in the unpublished order, without providing any evidence, that the CDC has such power because an eviction moratorium is “reasonably necessary measure under 42 CFR 70.2 to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States.”

How far has our government strayed from the principles of the national contract we all adopted in 1789? James Madison flatly asserted in Federalist 54 that “Government is instituted no less for the protection of the property than of the persons of individuals.” Even toward the end of his life, long after the Constitution was adopted, Madison was still concerned with property rights. He went on to explain at a constitutional convention of Virginia lawmakers in 1829 that individual and property rights “cannot well be separated” because “the personal right to acquire property, which is a natural right, gives to property, when acquired, a right to protection, as a social right.”

In other words, government was created for the express purpose of protecting property. Now it is being used to retroactively dissolve private contracts voluntarily forged between two citizens and engage in Venezuela-style state-sanctioned theft. If government can do this so easily, what can it not do to us? As John Adams warned in 1787:

“The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If ‘Thou shalt not covet,’ and ‘Thou shalt not steal,’ were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free.”

Our politicians continue to forget that there is no emergency exception to fundamental rights in the Constitution, most certainly not property rights. A decade before the American revolution, Sir William Blackstone, the English jurist who so greatly influenced the legal thinking of our Founders, wrote in his “Commentaries on the Laws of England,” “So great moreover is the regard of the law for private property, that it will not authorize the least violation of it; no, not even for the general good of the whole community.” Which is why Jon Jay concluded, “No power on earth has a right to take our property from us without our consent.”

Sadly, the only rights that have not been infringed upon under the guise of emergency powers this year involve the one true constitutional exception to fundamental rights, which is habeas corpus during a rebellion (Art. I, Sec. 9, Cl. II). Nobody is even asking for the rioters to be held without habeas rights or other due process, but they are not even being held or stopped with those rights. They have free rein to plunder, burn, and maim without being prosecuted. Meanwhile, coronavirus is being used to illegally strip peaceful business owners of their property rights.

Unless this tyranny changes, Joe Biden and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have won this election regardless of the vote tally on November 3.

CDC eviction fines Intelwars Jail Landlords moratorium

Citing coronavirus pandemic, CDC issues nationwide eviction moratorium

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a sweeping moratorium on evictions nationwide, which decrees that landlords who are found to be in violation of the order face fines of up to $100,000 and a year behind bars.

What are the details?

The agency was granted purported authority for the action through an executive order signed by President Donald Trump last month, which “instructed federal officials to consider measures to temporarily halt evictions,” according to CBS News. CBS noted that “senior administration officials explained that the director of the CDC has broad authority to take actions deemed reasonably necessary to prevent the spread of a communicable disease.”

The outlet reported:

Renters covered through the executive order must meet four criteria. They must:
— Have an income of $198,000 or less for couples filing jointly, or up to $99,000 for single filers.
— Demonstrate they have sought government assistance to make their rental payments.
— Affirmatively declare they are unable to pay rent because of COVID-19 hardships.
— Affirm they are likely to become homeless if they are evicted.

Bloomberg reported that Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said Tuesday that the move could impact “close to” 40 million renters.

Reason pointed out that landlords who violate the order — which goes into effect Friday and extends through the end of 2020 — can face steep penalties if they evict a renter covered under the federal government’s mandate. The penalties are steep: As much as year in jail and up to $100,000 in fines.

Advocates for both landlords and renters have criticized the CDC’s mandate.

Property rights advocates are crying foul over whether the government has such authority in the first place. Libertarian-leaning GOP Rep. Thomas Massie (Ky.) declared on Twitter, “If society concedes that the CDC can unilaterally seize property (with their ridiculous rent moratorium) our devolution into a ‘bureautocracy’ is complete, and private property no longer exists.”

Meanwhile, tenant advocates are calling the measure insufficient because the order requires renters to pay all unpaid rent after it is lifted.

Diane Yentel, president and CEO of the National Low Income House Coalition tweeted in reaction to the news, “while an eviction moratorium is essential, it is a half-measure that extends a financial cliff for renters to fall off when the moratorium expires and back rent is owed. This action delays but does not prevent evictions.”

She added, “Congress & the White House must #GetBackToWork on negotiations to enact a COVID-19 relief bill with at least $100 billion in emergency rental assistance. Together w/nat’l eviction moratorium, this would keep renters stably housed during and after pandemic.”

agenda Aluminum auto immune disease CDC Censorship Children Conspiracy Fact and Theory Coronavirus COVID-19 Del Bigtree DNA Emergency Preparedness Headline News Hoax injection Intelwars LIES Lior Gantz mandatory mandatory vaccines MMR neurotoxins Politica... propaganda rushed scamdemic vaccine schedule vaccines Vaxxed Virus

Heavily Censored Del Bigtree: “They’re Telling You What Their Agenda Is”

Del Bigtree the producer of the documentary Vaxxed, recently sat down for an interview with Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group.  Bigtree laid out exactly what’s in a vaccine, and what will be going into your body, and why this coronavirus scamdemic vaccine is nothing like we’ve ever seen before.

Bigtree jumps right in when he explains his history of researching vaccines, more specifically, the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) shot that was shown in studies to give children autism. Bigtree recounts how he started to get pushback fro the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) when he was asking for double-blind placebo studies on vaccines that prove they are safe and effective. Basically, those studies either aren’t being done, or they are not showing vaccines to be safe as we’ve been told.

On top of all f that, Bigtree says the vaccine manufactures and doctors who administer vaccines have no obligation to ensure you are safe when administering them.  If you have a side effect or are killed by a vaccine, the taxpayers are liable, not the company that created the vaccine.  If you think that’s bad, wait until you hear what’s in store for us with this COVID-19 vaccine agenda.

The coronavirus vaccine will not be undergoing phase 3 trials, let alone double-blind placebo studies, and all of the manufacturers have demanded they be protected from the public if they kill or injure anyone with this rushed injectable product. If you are still under some delusion that this vaccine won’t be mandatory, either by force or otherwise, you don’t understand what’s going on.  Those in power need you to submit and take the vaccine. “It’s really an outrageous moment we find ourselves in,” says Bigtree, summing it all up.

This is a worldwide issue too, says Bigtree. COVID-19 is bringing in everyone (adults and children) into the forced vaccine program. This should alarm anyone. If any other human can force something into your body against your will, you are not free. But they only need slaves in the New World Order.  He’s been warning people to wake up for years now. “There is going to be something that they use to scare us into an adult vaccine program,” said Bigtree. “You think it’s just the COVID-19 vaccine, but you’ll have to get the catch-up schedule to catch up with the children’s vaccine program,” which includes 72 doses of vaccines.

Mandatory vaccines have the DNA of other humans (aborted fetal  DNA, worm DNA, cocker spaniel DNA) in them, says Bigtree. It’s time the public is aware of what they are injecting into their children. Not to mention the aluminum, which is a neurotoxin when ingested, yet we inject it directly into the bloodstream.

So what’s the overall goal of the ruling class? Bigtree says he doesn’t delve into conspiracy theories, but “let’s just take them for their word. They’re telling you what they’re agenda is. When you hear them say, long before ‘our lives will not get back to normal until we have a vaccine, months ago.’ That’s an agenda. Right there, they just told you the main goal.”

And yet, they’ve moved the goalposts from there.

They Moved The Goalposts…AGAIN!: “It’s Not Over When The Vaccine Arrives”

I still have a few questions Bigtree: what is in the new COVID-19 vaccine? Why is THIS vaccine necessary for the entire population?

Asymptomatic authoritarian CDC centers for disease control and prevention Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Dr. anthony fauci elections fear mongering Government HAWAII Headline News healthy people Hoax Intelwars liars mainstream media hoax mandatory testing mandatory vaccines medical martial law Models plandemic propaganda scamdemic symptomatic TOTALITARIANISM

CDC & Fauci CONFIRM: COVID-19 Scamdemic Was A HOAX!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has admitted on their website that the entire coronavirus scamdemic was a huge lie and massive mainstream media hoax. Only 6% of COVID-19 deaths reported were actually from the virus. Dr. Anthony Fauci also had some interesting remarks about asymptomatic carriers too.

Fauci said asymptomatic carriers aren’t the problem either, and that has never been the case EVER in any epidemic. (Notice how no one is calling this a pandemic anymore.)

“In all of the history of respiratory born viruses of any type, asymptomatic tbeen the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is ALWAYS a symptomatic person. Even IF there’s a RARE asymptomatic person that might transmitan epidemic is NOT driven by asymptomatic carriers.” –Dr. Anthony Fauci, authoritarian leading the coronavirus task force

So why all the fear of normal healthy people? We are living through a totalitarian nightmare. In Hawaii, all motorist ar now being forced to submit to coronvirus tested if you are on a certain highway. This is tyranny, folks. Wak up. If you have no control what does into your body (vaccine, nose swab, etc.) than you are not free, so stop pretending you are.

How much is 6%? Not much in a nation with a population of well over 300 million. The mainstream media has already started working in overdrive to say these statistics don’t mean you shouldn’t be living a life full of fear glued to your TV for the latest fear porn numbers. The coronavirus that governments shut down the entire globe for was responsible for a mere 9,000 deaths in the United Staes.

All other cases had other comorbidities and contributing causes (such as car accidents):

Truth is treason in the empire of lies. But don’t worry.  Trump has the military ready to deliver a vaccine in a “powerful way” to all Americans, even though this was all a gigantic lie based on their own numbers. So the real question is why is Trump pushing this vaccine so hard, so fast, with force from the military, and what the hell is in it?

This was a scam from the very beginning and unfortunately, far too many Americans fell for it. Just because this information is out there now, doesn’t mean the the New World Order will stop. Wait for something worse.  Brace yourself, because those in power will not be relinuishing it easily so we can have our lives and freedom back. The rest of this year could get rather intense, especially since we’ve been promised a horrific election and a “dark winter.”

6 percent coronavirus deaths 6 percent covid death CDC Cdc covid Coronavirus deaths Covid deaths Intelwars

CDC: 6% of coronavirus deaths were solely from COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published a report stating that just 6% of COVID-19 deaths listed the only cause of death as coronavirus and no other comorbidities.

“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” the CDC website reads.

Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, noticed the important information on the CDC’s website on Aug. 6.

Based on the CDC’s data, 94% of people have died with coronavirus, along with one or more other underlying health issues. The CDC’s Aug. 28 update stated that there were 167,558 COVID-19 total deaths, which means 10,053 died solely of coronavirus alone with no other health conditions.

The CDC’s figures are derived from provisional death counts, which are based on death certificate data received and coded by the National Center for Health Statistics.

“Provisional death counts deliver the most complete and accurate picture of lives lost to COVID-19,” the CDC states. “They are based on death certificates, which are the most reliable source of data and contain information not available anywhere else, including comorbid conditions, race and ethnicity, and place of death.”

The CDC listed the following as the top underlying medical conditions linked to coronavirus deaths:

  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Respiratory failure
  • Hypertensive disease
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular and unspecified dementia
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Heart failure
  • Renal failure
  • Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
  • Other medical conditions

Dr. David B Samadi MD, urologic oncology expert and robotic surgeon, commented on the CDC news.

“As a men’s health expert, many men have been affected by COVID-19,” he wrote on Twitter. “The CDC today revealed that only 6% of COVID deaths were in patients without existing comorbidities. 94% of the deaths were in cases with pre-existing conditions. This affects the entire public.”

Former New York Times investigative reporter Alex Berenson wrote on Twitter:

A lot of people are jumping on the @cdcgov statement just 6% of US #Covid deaths list #Covid alone as the cause. But to use that figure to claim ‘COVID ONLY KILLED 9,000 AMERICANS’ is wrong. Other causes include conditions like pneumonia, which can clearly be Covid-related. A better way to use the data may be to TAKE OUT causes clearly unrelated to #sarscov2. I’d include Alzheimer’s, sepsis, dementia, cancer, and unintentional injury (Let’s be conservative and leave off kidney failure, diabetes, obesity, and strokes). The other advantage of leaving off those conditions is that there is significant overlap in, say, diabetes and obesity (and the CDC reports the average COVID death certificate included 2.6 other conditions). That’s less likely for the conditions I included. So, okay, the five conditions on my list were on about 50,000 certificates (assuming no double counting). The accidental deaths and poisonings alone were 5,000. Those deaths – at a minimum – are much more likely to fall in the WITH rather than FROM #Covid category. It would also be nice if @cdcgov offered more specific information about the 77,000 deaths that had other ‘unspecified’ conditions listed. But this is a start, at least – and it’s in keeping with the other steps the CDC has taken recently.

CDC Coronavirus Intelwars Suicide young adults

CDC: Over 1 in 4 young adults contemplated suicide in June amid COVID-19

New data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that more than one quarter of young adults in the U.S. considered killing themselves in the month of June, a startling statistic that lays bare the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on mental health.

What are the details?

In a survey of 5,412 adults conducted June 24-30, 25.5% of those between the ages of 18 and 24 reported “having seriously considered suicide in the 30 days before completing the survey,” the agency reported. To compare, that is more than double the percentage of adults overall who reported suicidal ideations during the time period, at 10.7%.

The CDC found that young adults were hit harder in other mental health areas, including “symptoms of anxiety disorder or depressive disorder, COVID-19-related [trauma- and stressor-related disorder] TSRD, initiation of or increase in substance use to cope with COVID-19-associated stress,” noting that “prevalence decreased progressively with age.”

Just over 40% of all the adults survey reported having at least one adverse mental or behavior health condition in June, and that percentage jumped to 74.9% among those in the 18-24 subgroup.

The numbers confirm the fears CDC Director Robert Redfield expressed last month, when he warned that younger people would be at greater health risk of suicide, drug abuse, and influenza than from exposure to the coronavirus.

Redfield, who has advocated for the reopening of schools, said during a Buck Institute webinar, “There has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools. We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID.”

He added, “We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID.”

‘Increased instances of depression’

While the young have been hardest hit, The Washington Examiner noted that “the pandemic has contributed to increased instances of depression and anxiety across all age groups,” according to the CDC’s numbers.

The outlet reported:

Public health experts have warned that unemployment and financial hardship would contribute to increases in mental health issues. CDC analysts suggested Thursday that any intervention at the local level and prevention efforts include strengthening economic support systems to reduce financial stress, as well as to address racial disparities in healthcare.

CDC Conflicting information Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Spread of coronavirus

CDC: face masks with vents, valves don’t prevent spread of coronavirus

The Centers for Disease Control now says that face masks with vents or valves — like the ones medical professionals sometimes wear to protect themselves from COVID-19 — don’t prevent the spread of coronavirus.

What are the details?

In health guidance issued last week, the CDC quietly announced that such masks can, in fact, increase the amount of “expelled respiratory droplets that can reach others.”

The guidance reads, “The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. However, masks with one-way valves or vents allow air to be exhaled through a hole in the material, which can result in expelled respiratory droplets that can reach others.”

“This type of mask does not prevent the person wearing the mask from transmitting COVID-19 to others,” the guidance adds. “Therefore, the CDC does not recommend using masks for source control if they have an exhalation valve or vent.”

Dr. John Whyte, chief medical officer of WebMD, told Fox News in a recent statement that not all masks are created equal.

“Although there is some feeling that any type of mask is better than none, it’s really not that helpful when one isn’t wearing a mask correctly or wearing one that is ineffective, and may not even realize it,” Whyte said. “These recent guidelines from the CDC are helpful in helping people choose masks.”

He added, “I know everyone wants comfort when wearing a mask. The key for protection is a good seal — thereby keeping as many infectious particles that we can from affecting other people. Sometimes that seal makes our glasses foggy or causes humidity. The problem with the valves is that although the prevent particles from coming in, they allow particles to come out — defeating the purpose of infection control. Masks with vent decrease the effectiveness of the seal.”

Anything else?

On Wednesday, the the Washington Post reported that several U.S. airlines have outright banned the use of valved masks.

The same day, Alison Taylor — chief customer officer at American Airlines — issued a statement on the move, saying, “Wearing a face covering is a responsibility we all share. An effective covering, worn properly, is one of the best ways we can control the spread of COVID-19 to protect our team members and customers. Since American began requiring face coverings in early May, the vast majority of customers have welcomed our continuing efforts to strengthen the policy based on the CDC’s guidance.”

The airline company says that masks that fit snugly against a wearer’s face, which covers their mouth and nose completely, are acceptable — but that vented or valved masks are not permitted.

More COVID-19 facts the media does NOT want you to know

To better understand the COVID-19 mortality rate in the U.S., Steve Deace compiled data from the official Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and shared the information on Tuesday’s episode of the Steve Deace Show.

Deace and his team independently pieced together the information released by the CDC to the general public with the goal of helping Americans better understand why much of the pandemic panic was an overreaction. Here’s what they found:

Mortality rate in U.S.

  • Age 85 and older make up 32% of the U.S. population but one-third of COVID deaths
  • Age 75 and older make up 75% of U.S. population but 59% of COVID deaths
  • Age 54 and younger make up make up 75% of the U.S. population but 8% of COVID deaths
  • Deaths DO NOT register until age 15-24 and even then, kids K-12 make up .02% of the population. Kids K-college undergraduate, according to data released by the CDC, are in no danger of dying of COVID-19.
  • The median age of COVID-19 deaths is around 78, which is the average U.S. life expectancy
Deace saved the most important fact for last, the way the CDC coded all COVID-19 deaths.

“The CDC coded all deaths “died with COVID” rather than “died from COVID,” he explained.

acute flaccid myelitis AFM CDC Intelwars Paralysis

CDC warns parents: Rare, polio-like virus that affects young children will see cases peak in 2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Tuesday that parents need to be on the lookout this fall for a rare “life-threatening” virus that affects young children.

According to the CDC, this year will be a peak year for acute flaccid myelitis, a rare, polio-like virus that causes paralysis in young children.

“As we head into these critical next months, CDC is taking necessary steps to help clinicians better recognize signs and symptoms of AFM in children,” CDC Director Robert Redfield said. “Recognition and early diagnosis are critical. CDC and public health partners have strengthened early disease detection systems, a vital step toward rapid treatment and rehabilitation for children with AFM.”

AFM symptoms include:

  • Limb weakness and paralysis
  • Fever
  • Difficulty walking, talking, or swallowing
  • Headache
  • Back or neck pain
  • Facial weakness
  • Recent or current respiratory illness

“Multiple viruses, including West Nile virus, adenovirus, and nonpolio enteroviruses, are known to cause AFM,” according to the CDC.

At a media briefing on Tuesday, Thomas Clark, deputy director of CDC’s division of viral diseases, said there is concern about the peak of AFM amid coronavirus outbreak.

“We are concerned that, in the midst of a COVID pandemic, that cases might not be recognized as AFM, or we are concerned that parents might be worried about taking their child to the doctor if they develop something as serious as limb weakness,” Clark said.

The disease, which on average peaks every other year, affected 238 young children in 2018; the median age for infection was 5 years old and 58% of those infected were male.

Shockingly, 98% of those who contracted AFM in 2018 required hospitalization, 54% were admitted to an intensive care unit, and 1-in-4 required the use of a ventilator.

According to the CDC, “AFM is a medical emergency and patients should seek immediate medical care.” Delaying medical care increases the likelihood of permanent neurological damage in patents.

The disease is expected to peak between August and November.

banksters CDC control Coronavirus COVID-19 Department of Defense distribute vaccine distributed vaccines Donald Trump Emergency Preparedness Force Health Intelwars mandatory men with guns Military Operation warp speed outbreak Pentagon slaves state tyranny take over

The Pentagon & CDC Will Join Together To Mass Distribute The COVID Vaccine

A new coronavirus vaccine is right around the corner, thanks to Operation Warp Speed, and it’s distant the Pentagon. Still think this thing, and whatever is in it will not be mandatory?

According to Politico, the addition of the Pentagon (if you need help deciding whether or not to get vaccinated, men with uns will help you) to help with vaccine distribution is unprecedented. The plan to use the Pentagon’s force breaks with the longstanding precedent that CDC distributes vaccines during major outbreaks through a centralized ordering system.

The Department of Defense “is handling all the logistics of getting the vaccines to the right place, at the right time, in the right condition,” the official said in a call with reporters, adding that CDC will remain in charge of tracking any side effects that emerge post-vaccination and “some of the communications through the state relationships [and] the state public health organizations.”

More Proof Trump Is Working On Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”

“We believe we’ve actually combined the best of both,” the DoD official said. A second senior administration official stressed the agencies would be working as “one team” to distribute hundreds of millions of doses if any of the vaccines in development are approved in the coming months.  So, if this won’t be mandatory, why is the Department of Defense involved in any capacity? Isn’t this a health issue? If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s not about health. It’s about control.

For anyone who isn’t paying attention, the current President is Donald Trump. Just had to say is, because people have some kind of religious devotion to the guy who is going to use the Pentagon to try to shove a needle in your arm. Trump’s own impeachment lawyer, who also defended Jeffry Epstein, also says you don’t have the right to not be vaccinated.

Top Lawyer Says The Government Has THE POWER To “Plunge a NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM”

Alan “The-State-Can-Plunge-A-Needle-In-Your-Arm” Dershowitz Is In Epstein’s “Little Black Book”

Is this still 5D chess? Are you still trusting the plan? Remember when sites like this one to blasted for playing Trump’s OWN WORDS about how he will use the military to help roll this vaccine out? Well, the Department of Defense is headquartered at the Pentagon, and their stated mission is to provide “the military forces needed to deter war and ensure our nation’s security.”  Not many preparedness sites are connecting the dots to show this, but you need to be aware. Trump will be reelected if the banksters who are taking control of the world want him to be, and by getting this vaccine out, he’s helping complete a necessary step to our enslavement.

Sticking your head in the sand and ignoring reality won’t save you.  I’ve said time and time again, it’s time to wake, up, be aware of what’s going on so you can prepare.

CDC Face mask debate face masks Intelwars President Trump Reopen schools Reopening schools schools

CDC emphasizes reopening schools is ‘critically important for our public health’ in new guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated guidelines on schools reopening during the coronavirus pandemic. In the new guidance unveiled Thursday, the CDC emphasized that sending students back to school was “critically important.”

“It is critically important for our public health to open schools this fall,” CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield said.

The CDC released “new science-based resources and tools for school administrators, teachers, parents, guardians, and caregivers when schools open this fall.” The resources, which include advice and checklists, are available on the CDC website.

“The CDC resources released today will help parents, teachers and administrators make practical, safety-focused decisions as this school year begins,” Redfield added. “I know this has been a difficult time for our Nation’s families. School closures have disrupted normal ways of life for children and parents, and they have had negative health consequences on our youth. CDC is prepared to work with K-12 schools to safely reopen while protecting the most vulnerable.”

“Schools are an important part of the infrastructure of communities and play a critical role in supporting the whole child, not just their academic achievement,” the U.S. national public health agency stated.

“The harms attributed to closed schools on the social, emotional, and behavioral health, economic well-being, and academic achievement of children, in both the short- and long-term, are well-known and significant,” the CDC website read. “Aside from a child’s home, no other setting has more influence on a child’s health and well-being than their school.”

“The best available evidence from countries that have opened schools indicates that COVID-19 poses low risk to school-aged children,” the CDC said on its website. “Reopening schools creates an opportunity to invest in the education, well-being, and future of one of America’s greatest assets – our children – while taking every precaution to protect students, teachers, staff and all their families.”

“With states, cities, and communities around the United States experiencing different levels of coronavirus transmission, jurisdictions should ensure appropriate public health strategies are in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 as the first step in creating a safer school environment,” the CDC stated.

“Children appear to be at lower risk for contracting COVID-19 compared to adults,” the agency said. “While some children have been sick with COVID-19, adults make up nearly 95% of reported COVID-19 cases.”

“Early reports suggest children are less likely to get COVID-19 than adults, and when they do get COVID-19, they generally have a less serious illness,” the CDC continued. “As of July 21, 2020, 6.6% of reported COVID-19 cases and less than 0.1% of COVID-19-related deaths are among children and adolescents less than 18 years of age in the United States.”

The CDC advised education officials to “consider community transmission risk” before reopening classrooms.

“Evidence from schools internationally suggests that school re-openings are safe in communities with low SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates,” the CDC stated. “Computer simulations from Europe have suggested that school re-openings may further increase transmission risk in communities where transmission is already high.”

The CDC also admitted that “there is mixed evidence about whether returning to school results in increased transmission or outbreaks.” The guidance referenced steady declines in coronavirus cases in Denmark schools, but there was a “surge of new cases and outbreaks in schools after reopening and relaxing social distancing measures” in Israel.

“Then, working in collaboration with their state and local health departments, school administrators can employ strategies that best match the local conditions and actions that are practical and feasible in their schools to help protect the health and safety of everyone – including students, teachers, and other staff,” the updated guidelines stated.

“Implement multiple SARS-CoV-2 mitigation strategies (e.g., social distancing, cloth face coverings, hand hygiene, and use of cohorting),” the CDC site stated. “Maintain healthy environments (e.g., cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces).”

“Plans for virtual learning should be in place in the event of a school closure,” the CDC recommended.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump said that all schools should be “actively making preparations to open.” However, he warned that some schools in areas with a high COVID-19 positivity rates “may need to delay reopening for a few weeks.”

“If schools do not reopen, the funding should go to parents to send their children to the public, private, charter, religious or home school,” President Trump said. “All families should be empowered to make the decision that is right for their circumstance.”

The Los Angeles Unified School District and the San Diego Unified School District, California’s two largest school districts, will not reopen for in-person instruction when the academic year starts in August, and instead will offer virtual classes.

Atlanta public schools’ first nine weeks of the school year will be carried out remotely.

New York City, the largest school district in the country, may use a staggered in-person model for reopening classrooms where students attend school one to three days a week to enable social distancing. However, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said he wouldn’t make a decision on reopening schools until days before the school year is scheduled to begin, which is on Sept. 10.

“The final decisions will be made as we get right up to it based on the data we have in front of us,” de Blasio said during a Thursday news conference.

The United States surpassed 4 million confirmed COVID-19 cases this week and now has over 144,000 coronavirus deaths.

On Wednesday, Redfield appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and said that would “absolutely” be comfortable with his school-aged grandchildren attend school this fall.

“The only one that there may be some reservation is my grandson with cystic fibrosis, depending on how he can be accommodated in the school that he’s in,” Redfield said. “My other 10 grandchildren, of those, eight of them are school-aged, I’m 100% that they can get back to school.”

Redfield also commented on the ongoing face mask debate.

“If all Americans would embrace that [masks] as part of their personal responsibility to confront this outbreak, we could actually have a very significant impact on the outbreak that we’re seeing across the country in the next four, six, eight, 10, 12 weeks,” Redfield explained.

CDC director says he ‘absolutely’ would send his grandchildren back to school in September

As the nation continues to debate whether to send students back to school this fall, at least one famous health expert has come out as a major advocate for getting kids in the classroom by September.

Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Wednesday it’s “critical” to get the schools open because of the health consequences connected to keeping kids out of school.

Redfield said that he believes schools can open safely — and is so certain of it that he would have no problem sending his own grandkids to school.

What did he say?

The CDC director began his interview touting the importance of masks and reminding viewers that there’s data showing that face masks work to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

“If all Americans would embrace that [masks] as part of their personal responsibility to confront this outbreak, we could actually have a very significant impact on the outbreak that we’re seeing across the country in the next four, six, eight, 10, 12 weeks,” Redfield said.

But, he did not go so far as to agree with host Cecilia Vega that the federal government should mandate masks nationwide.

“Why not just mandate this nationally and make people wear a mask?” Vega asked.

“I’m not sure that mandating makes sense,” Redfield replied. “I think the issue is how to motivate all Americans to do that. It’s obviously an independent decision that the individual governors are making.”

With that out of the way, Redfield addressed the need to get kids back in school.

Asked about how realistic it is to get little kids to stay six feet apart at lunch and recess, the director said that getting the students back in school is itself a public health issue.

“It’s really important to get our schools open,” Redfield answered. “As I’ve said, it’s not public health versus opening the schools for the economy. It’s public health versus public health. I think there really are a number of negative public health consequences that have happened to our K-12s by having these schools closed.”

He emphasized the importance of working with the schools to implement the CDC’s social distancing and face mask guidelines.

“It’s so important now to work together with the school districts to figure out how they can take our guidelines and operationalize them in a practical way,” he said, “and to do it in a way that’s safe for those that are vulnerable.”

What about his grandkids?

Vega asked Redfield if he would be comfortable with his school-age grandchildren going back to school in the fall.

“Absolutely,” the doctor said.

“The only one that there may be some reservation is my grandson with cystic fibrosis, depending on how he can be accommodated in the school that he’s in,” Redfield said. “My other 10 grandchildren, of those, eight of them are school-aged, I’m 100% that they can get back to school.”

CDC director says COVID-19 can be under control in 1-2 months if everyone wears a mask

Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the United States could have the COVID-19 outbreak under control in a month or two if everyone wears a face mask in public, according to Business Insider.

Some states have required residents to wear masks in public, but the federal government has only advised, but not required people to do so since April 3. Even without a federal mandate, however, Redfield said he believes face masks are a key to success against the novel coronavirus.

“The data is clearly there that masking works,” Redfield said Tuesday. “If we can get everybody to wear a mask right now, I really do think in the next four, six, eight weeks…we can get this epidemic under control.”

One example supporting the effectiveness of face masks is the Missouri hairstylists who were infected while treating 140 clients. They wore face masks based on salon policy, and none of the clients were infected.

The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, known for its COVID-19 projection models that often produced inconsistent results, has projected that universal masking could save 45,000 lives over the next four months, and could prevent the need for more lockdowns.

“Mask mandates delay the need for re-imposing closures of businesses and have huge economic benefits,” IHME director Christopher Murray said in a statement. “Moreover, those who refuse masks are putting their lives, their families, their friends, and their communities at risk.”

There is some reason to doubt whether face masks are truly the thing that will stop COVID-19, however. Hong Kong had nearly universal masking voluntary masking. From Vox:

But almost as soon as the outbreak first began in the city, millions of residents started wearing masks in public. One local told the Los Angeles Times that the government didn’t have to say anything before 99 percent of the population put them on.

Hong Kong is now implementing strict lockdown policies as it deals with a third wave of the virus.

Some research has shown masks, especially cloth face coverings, to be ineffective as well. From the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy:

Our review of relevant studies indicates that cloth masks will be ineffective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, whether worn as source control or as PPE.

Surgical masks likely have some utility as source control (meaning the wearer limits virus dispersal to another person) from a symptomatic patient in a healthcare setting to stop the spread of large cough particles and limit the lateral dispersion of cough particles. They may also have very limited utility as source control or PPE in households.
