And the models are still wrong!
“There is no way that social distancing made the difference from 240,000 dead projected now down to 60,000 dead. And what do you bet that number gets revised down in the coming days? There has to be something else going on here, and it has to be the projections were wrong in the first place because of the models, and we know that they were wrong.
But these guys get to revise their projections and hold on to their expertise status throughout the entire process. I just don’t believe social distancing has suddenly changed the data that lowers the forecast death toll from 240,000 to 60,000. We’re not stupid here.”
Hard to be the one left. Prayers for you and Charlie and thank you Charlie, for being a marine.
What’s he wearing. Looks like the curtain.
Just wait. You’re still young!
Thank you. It wasn’t great. Too hurried. I was all ready behind. I appreciate learning new ways to do things, always!
Do you announce somehow when you’ve posted new lessons?
Cuomo’s response to the virus was so bad even the new york slime noticed.

God Help Us All: Dr. Fauci Knows Exactly What He's Doing By Michael Thau
“Last Thursday, the scientific mastermind behind the economic carnage and spirit-crushing isolation now constituting the two main pillars of America's ingenious new public health strategy delivered some bad news. Dr. Fauci says we'll have to keep living like this until the virus is eradicated.
Even if "virus" isn't his nickname for the American people, following his advice still means a long, grueling haul. The economic shutdown and social confinement oppressing us have to continue for at least the minimum estimated 18 months it will take to develop a vaccine for COVID-19. Longer, since the stipulation that our rights don't get restored until new infections cease means we have to manufacture and distribute enough to inoculate 60% of the population. All told, we're talking God only knows how many years.
No remotely similar brutal experiment in tough love has ever been tried. So it's anyone's guess how bad things will get. The Great Depression saw just three consecutive years averaging around a 9% decline in GDP. Unemployment peaked at 25%. Much worse is already projected in just the coming months.
But even if our hardship snowballs into a catastrophe rivaling the crash of '29, we're at least likely to avoid its infamous breadlines. Impoverished people lining up for food would wreak havoc on Dr. Fauci's social distancing scheme. So he's likely to insist that any rations be delivered. The upside to house arrest during an economic meltdown is not having to wear the malodorous rags to which your clothes will be reduced in public.
Nor, thankfully, will you have to worry about how Dr. Fauci is faring. Rest assured: his high-level position in the federal bureaucracy provides ample insulation from any hardship inflicted on you. He's already acquired a security detail because some ingrates reacted to a suspension of our most basic rights, which makes the taxes George III imposed on our founding fathers look utterly minor, by subjecting poor Dr. Fauci to the same threats and insults literally every public figure gets. If things get bad, his new bodyguards will make sure he enjoys the decent food he's bound to have first dibs on undisturbed. That's probably why he remains so disturbingly cheerful whenever he has to push our faces a little farther into the dirt for our own good.
You needn't worry about Dr. Fauci missing any paychecks as so many Americans already have, either. Unlike us, in times of crisis, bureaucrats get to declare themselves "essential." No matter how much misery they rain down, we never have to worry they won't be compensated.
Dr. Fauci, in particular, is guaranteed never to miss a penny of his very nice salary since he's the most "essential" bureaucrat of all. His three decades of no experience whatsoever outside the federal bureaucracy means that neither his record of wildly exaggerating the threat of AIDS nor the disastrous job he did crafting a response negatively affected his career. In fact, results matter so little for "essential" people like Dr. Fauci that he still openly brags about his risibly false prediction that "AIDS would not stay confined to the populations where it first appeared" and become "a disaster for society." Dr. Fauci's bold lack of concern for epidemiological reality is exactly what's needed to guide us through this crisis.
He's also understandably proud that, after years of being vilified by AIDS activists for "killing people with red tape," he eventually realized that "much of their criticism was absolutely valid" and held off on killing any more. Who said noblesse oblige was dead?
Dr. Fauci's completely bogus scare-mongering and deadly policy recommendations the last time he directed our efforts against a new pathogen aren't the only reason we need to blindly follow his advice about this one. Though curing AIDS was his number-one priority, it was left to scientists in Europe to discover an effective treatment. But you know what they completely failed to do? Spend unimaginably large sums of money. Their successful treatment barely cost a dime compared to the tens of billions of your tax dollars Dr. Fauci pried from Congress to fund his failure. That's the true measure of success for any "essential" bureaucrat.
Without Dr. Fauci, who'll save you the next time some computer model produces scary numbers that its designers explicitly admit depend on "very large uncertainties"? Who'll destroy the economy and confine you to house arrest based on the work of people explicitly warning that it's "not at all certain" such measures will even accomplish anything?
One shudders to think what someone lacking Dr. Fauci's expertise might have done upon learning that the predicted number of hospitalizations solely responsible for generating the scary death rate he's putting us through hell to avoid were inflated almost tenfold. A lesser man might stupidly think eliminating any rationale for the misery he's inflicting on us means we need to reverse course immediately instead of wisely insisting that his pointlessly destructive policies continue indefinitely.
Besides, despite Dr. Fauci's lack of candor, the open-endedness of the dystopian nightmare he's inflicted on us has always been clear. Though who had time to bother looking carefully at the justification for peremptorily shutting down our businesses and confining us to our homes once we were given an awesome slogan like "flatten the curve" to mindlessly regurgitate? Not since "Where's the beef?" appeared to challenge and transform our conceptual framework has American intellectual life been so enlivened. But if we hadn't been diverted by the essential task of relentlessly barking "flatten the curve" at each other like trained seals, we might have noticed something.
Normally, this new coronavirus should start disappearing after a few months. When the percentage of people who'd been infected, recovered, and gained immunity got high enough, there would no longer be enough carriers for it to spread. So even those who hadn't acquired biological immunity nonetheless would become protected through herd immunity.
Remember those researchers whose computer model is motivating Dr. Fauci's restrictions? You know, the ones who said their projections could be totally wrong, and, even if not, the certain misery Dr. Fauci is inflicting on us still might not accomplish anything? Well, they've also repeatedly said one consequence of successfully slowing down the infection rate is preventing herd immunity. Hence, they warned that restoring our rights before herd immunity is artificially created through vaccination would put us right back where we started, rendering the hardship caused by suspending them in the first place pointless.
Another related consequence Dr. Fauci has been careful not to mention is that, because we're making the virus linger for many years instead of mere months, despite slowing down how fast it spreads, the restrictions strangling our lives won't decrease the number of people ultimately infected. We're only decreasing your chances of becoming infected now. Your overall chances of getting the virus at some point aren't any lower than if we'd let the infection rate remain high and not vastly increased how long the virus will be active by treating it like the severe flu Dr. Fauci admits it's likely to clinically resemble when addressing his peers
But perhaps your unaware that on March 26, Dr. Fauci himself said in the New England Journal of Medicine that "the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%)."
So, don't let what Dr. Fauci tells the inessential people he's inflicting misery on fool you. He's known from the beginning that the measures he allowed us to believe might be short-lived make sense only if they're maintained for at least several years and that they weren't going to reduce anyone's chances of catching COVID-19. He's fully aware that the projections about hospitalization rates justifying their implementation proved to be completely bogus and that we're barreling toward an economic catastrophe because of a virus akin to a seasonal flu.
Dr. Fauci may have completely bungled our response to AIDS through incompetence. But this time, he knows exactly what he's doing.
God help us all.”

Fauci: ‘No doubt’ Trump will face surprise infectious disease outbreak
January 11, 2017
“Anthony S. Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there is “no doubt” Donald J. Trump will be confronted with a surprise infectious disease outbreak during his presidency.
Fauci has led the NIAID for more than 3 decades, advising the past five United States presidents on global health threats from the early days of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s through to the current Zika virus outbreak. . .
“Anthony Fauci’s Genocidal Perjury
In the meantime, on Feb. 27, 2019, Dr. Fauci was recorded committing perjury before the U.S. Congress’s House Committee on Energy & Commerce at a “Heaing on ‘Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.” sponsored by PharmaWhores Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) and Diana DeGette (D-CO). Fauci’s facial features gave-away his ‘scienter’–knowledge that he was lying as you can view on the CSPAN recording. Fauci denied that cases of encephalitis have been caused by the measles vaccine is commonly known in medicine, as clearly stated in the vaccine package insert supplied by Merck. That publication states under ADVERSE REACTIONS:
Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS); subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM); transverse myelitis; febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia. Encephalitis and encephalopathy have been reported approximately once for every 3 million doses of M-M-R II or measles-, mumps-, and rubella-containing vaccine administered since licensure of these vaccines.
It should be noted that the misrepresentation of “once for every 3 million doses” omits the fact that adverse reactions are typically not reported. The lack of mandatory and enforced adverse injury reporting by health agencies defies logic and reliability of Merck’s statement.
Nonetheless, blatantly bribed by Big Pharma, Rep. Pallone and DeGette insisted that vaccines are the solution to measles, and demanded to know what Fauci and the government was doing to stop the purported threat. Pallone’s and DeGette’s campaign finance statements are summarized below. They evidence the true cause of these criminal psychopaths making recent measles outbreaks sound like Ebola was ravaging the entire population.
One might reasonably ask, “What does measles have to do with the Energy and Commerce Committee?” Mainly bribery by the Energy Cartel that is synonymous with the Drug Cartel. Here is the evidence for the charge of bribery:
Controlled opposition leader of the NVIC, Barbara Loe Fisher minimized Fauci’s perjury and complicity in the vaccine genocide writing that he simply lied, under the caption: “Dr. Fauci, It’s Not Nice to Fool Congress About Vaccine Reactions.” That’s the equivalent of telling Hitler or Stalin during WWII, “It’ not nice to deny your genocides.”
Dimwit here ????
Can’t. Remember. We’re not them.
Trump has money in a FUND that owned some pharmaceuticals. He doesn’t own them outright. I own shares in stocks that probably own Colgate. Doesn't mean I make toothpaste!
The fact that he does it all AND still plays golf is another win, though I haven’t heard about him out on a golf course lately!
Putting them on a sustainable power trip. There was a policeman outside walmart today. What a policeman?
It also means it might be another one that comes along year after year. Might kill grandma (me) next year.
I’ve also heard that deaths in general are down this year over last year. Maybe we kept more people from catching the regular flus.
I got that, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. Whether it’s because we did the right things or it was overblown, I don’t have a clue.
And now, unfortunately, it looks like by preventing herd immunity, we might be prolonging the danger.
So, he gets everything done as it needs to be AND plays golf (although I bet he’s not doing much of that right now). Good for him!
Then you’re not as a-theist as you might think. “Those that are not against me are for me. You’re in my prayers. No escape!
