Fear and Panic for A Purpose – The Coronavirus Evolves Into “The Blue Plague”…

The “Blue Plague” is an intentional effort by various interests to create fear-porn amid the American population by intentionally hyping a mass hysteria about the coronavirus.  In many ways the Blue Plague is exponentially more dangerous than COVID-19 itself.

Earlier today, The New York Times became the epicenter of the Blue Plague by stating people in hospitals throughout the city were dying, as desperately under-prepared and under-equipped doctors and nurses could not find ventilators for thousands of arriving patients in a state of panic.  This was/is incitement at its worst.

Blue doctors and Blue nurses, aligned with the political resistance efort, transmitted videos claiming desperate and dying patients, using the term “apocalyptic surge“…

[…]  hospitals are under siege. New York City’s hospitals run the gamut from prestigious teaching institutions catering to the elite to public hospitals providing care for some of the poorest communities in the nation. Regardless of whom they serve, few have been spared the impact of the pandemic: A flood of sick and fearful New Yorkers has besieged emergency rooms across the city.

[…] At least two city hospitals have filled up their morgues, and city officials anticipated the rest would reach capacity by the end of this week, according to the briefing. The state requested 85 refrigerated trailers from FEMA for mortuary services, along with staff, the briefing said.  (link)

Of course, all of the emphasis is false, everyone is getting treated, and so far the pandemic has created no more of a crisis than a high-flu season. However, the panic such fear-porn creates can deliver a self-fulfilling outcome. Immediately, the downstream media, specifically CNN, take the script and begin amplifying the panic story-line.

This unfortunate gross-media manipulation is exactly what caused task force member Dr. Birx to step to the microphones today and state the activity on the ground does not match the fear-porn models that media are hyping.  WATCH:

            And it will work, as in accomplish its goals, ALMOST,as well as every previous plan hatched by the enemies of PDJT.

            HE is not “Teflon”; he is,”I’m rubber, your glue”.

            The common trait of his enemies;
            “HAH! NOW we got Trump,…right where he wants us,…wha,…HEY!”

            Many who thought it was “unbecoming” and “UnPresidential” of PDJT to call the media “Fake News”,…..
            Had NEVER watched one of his pressers, and even if they did, you can’t hear their snarky questions, only his answers.

            But, because they were concerned (scared) about their and their families financial and physical health, they tuned in to get the official info.

            And they were APPALLED. They now feel like, if anything the President has UNDERSTATED the case against the press.

            Didn’t get bailouts for wall street, got bailouts, and potentially actually STRENGTHENED the MAIN STREET economic engine.

            Will NOT last long enough, to allow Biden to hide, give an excuse for him to avoid debates, and for millions of Americans who formerly will believing the media spin, they are now rooting for PDJT.

            OVERALL, while it may seem unsightly to talk about Political benefit to this virus which IS killing people, if we wait till the dust settles, as with every other “beginning of the end” story, from access hollywood tapes, to ukraine phone call, the narrative will further discredit his enemies, and yield him greater credibility.

            And credibility is the coin of the realm, in Politics and the media narrative.
            Credibility is POWER; with it you can shape policy and perceptions.

      Her points were very well taken. We do not need to do nasopharyngeal swabs for the DNA presence of the Covid-19 virus because we are no longer controlling(if ever) the movement of the virus through the population. We absolutely should be doing IG immunoglobulin blood tests randomly to pick up the proportion of the population which are infected, but never showed signs of illness. This number is likely to be at least as large as the 69,000 serologically diagnosed patients from the DNA tests. The effect of this knowledge is to dramatically lower the mortality rate, which up to now has been estimated inaccurately from the case fatality rate(deaths/presence of virus DNA).
      Furthermore, we need to be testing sick, recovering, and recovered Covid-19 patients with iG immunoglobin assays to characterize the antibody response, correlate it with the clinical response, and measure whether it appears to be protective against reinfection. Without these tests, we will never be able to accurately measure the population at risk, the population infected serologically and recovered, and immunity from reinfection.

Instead, the approval ratings are increasing to the highest levels. That’s why #fakenews are not covering the daily briefings, or severely truncating them.

    Confused. They said yesterday only 3400 hospitalized or something. They have 4000 ventilators delivered. 1200 ICU and thus only a fraction of that needs ventilators. Why are they having any issue at all? Even taking Wuhan statistics. 5 percent of patients required intensive care and only 2.3% required a ventilator. So 600 ventilators in NY being used based on this math. If there is a problem it is a problem with CUOMO and delivery of the ventilators and other PPE to hospitals creating a manufactured crisis risking his constituency.

        Cuomo won’t save people if they get Covid, and he won’t bear significant personal consequences. It’s basically a big city problem, they have problems in Seattle and SFO, LA isn’t testing so we can pretend they don’t have a problem, Florida is having problems maybe Dade County being the worst, and so on.

        To Cuomo’s credit he is reacting, ramping up testing, exposing the problem. Others aren’t. I read that NC and Hawaii want extra provisions to handle dead bodies.

      No. Not unless you are in favor of repealing the first amendment. That’s what the left wants. Authoritarians of every political persuasion including some on the right also want that. That is not a good idea. Beware of unintended consequences.

      The media broadcasting in lockstep is not the same as shouting fire in “a crowded theater” that has only one physical exit. Every “smart phone”, every TV set and every computer has an “OFF switch. No one is forcing you to watch or listen to anything. (Even though the “off” button on a computer is labeled the “start” button. See how mind control and cultural influence works?)

      The same applies to the illicit drug trade. Nancy Reagan said “Just say no” to drugs. Simply said, but it is TRUE – and it’s effective – it works, every time it’s tried. As usual, we’re looking through the wrong end of the telescope, as it were. But nobody wants to be told that. Americans don’t like simple solutions that work. Money is to be made by making things more complicated.

      It’s simply supply and demand, Econ 101. The supply is a market that can never be extinguished. The demand can be diminished or even extinguished, if we shut the media off and say NO to it.

      Can we ever say NO to what is alluring, and even addictive? Yes, we can. But we probably will choose not to say no. We are following our programming to always say yes to everything, and never say “no”. That’s rewarding. That’s the American way – for better or for worse.

    I wouldn’t be averse to DHS putting the kibosh on reporters who circulate unsourced or provably false reports. Lock them up for the duration of the shutdown. The more the merrier. Maybe at that point there will be large unanimity for ending it sooner rather than later.

  31. SIL has a heart attack yesterday. They shove a stent into her and shove her out the door because they MIGHT need the bed for a c-virus patient! Husband can’t even see her!

    Today she has more pain and goes back and gets another stent and again is tossed because they MIGHT need the bed for a c-virus patient!

    Patient actually in danger of dying tossed out for a theoretical patient who may never appear.

      Not to be insensitive, but if I had just had a stent put in, frankly a hospital is the LAST place I would want to be; they are FULL of SICK people.

      I personally would much rather ‘recover’ at home. But then I think its insane, the degree that people who are obviously terminal, die in hospitals, instead of at home.

      Maybe its just me,..

          • Last year I nearly died from multiple pulmonary embolisms. I had a December miracle when I decided to stop being jerked around by the conceited specialists in white lab coats and take control of my treatment . I have had two great months after staring into the abyss.

            Now I have something going on in my chest. My excellent GP wants to put me on Hydroxychloroquine, 400 milligrams twice a day for two days, then 200 milligrams twice a day, five days. Azithromycin, 500 milligrams once a day, five days. Zinc sulfate, 220 milligrams once a day for five days.

            Guess what? nazi dewine and his angel of death have decreed I cannot have the meds (shsh, because they might need them) because of “hording” that can’t happen. I have to be tested and a positive result. This thing is now called “SARS-COV-2”. Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome-COV-2. Note the SUDDEN part. If it hits there is an excellent chance one will be DEAD before the test results are returned.

    • I know this is long but I really hope people read it.

      Anne Shippy, MD:
      My first (confirmed) patient with COVID-19 was admitted to the hospital early Tuesday morning March 24, 2020. I had started him on the hydroxychloroquine medication protocol, which is, in my medical opinion, the best option from all the research I’ve reviewed as of early evening on March 23.

      When I checked an hour later, I realized that he could be declining rapidly– even though he didn’t have the typical COVID-19 symptoms. I quickly facilitated his visiting a local urgent care ER for evaluation. They found that his CT-scan was consistent with COVID-19 pneumonia. His care was transferred to a local hospital. The subsequent nasal swab test confirmed the diagnosis.

      The biggest challenge: The hospital he was sent to has a policy of not using hydroxychloroquine for their patients with COVID-19.

      If you or a loved one is going to be admitted to a hospital for COVID-19, you urgently need to know what medication policy the hospital will enforce regarding the current hydroxychloroquine protocol that is being used in many hospitals in the US and internationally. (In case of emergency, do not let this delay your treatment, and please seek emergency help immediately if you require it).

      I requested the hospital physician prescribe the hydroxychloroquine-based protocol that has been helping even some of the most-affected patients recover, but he was not able to because of the hospital policy. Finally, late last night I was able to negotiate with hospital administration to allow me to continue the medication I had prescribed for my patient before he was admitted– by personally dropping it off at the hospital for them to administer.

      So far, the protocol seems to be helping and my patient is stabilizing. I’m feeling a glimmer of hope, and I’m cautiously optimistic that we will have a treatment protocol that may work for most people.

      Hydroxychloroquine, also known as Plaquenil, is a reasonably safe, well-known, and very inexpensive drug that has been in use for decades for malaria and autoimmune diseases. The FDA has fast-tracked approval of chloroquine for testing, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo began trials Tuesday (yesterday), procuring 70,000 doses of hydroxychloroquine and 750,000 doses of chloroquine for their state.

      The Chinese and Korean (and other countries’) doctors that used this protocol have done a great job documenting and publishing their results so quickly, and others have administered the protocol and reported outstanding results without having published them formally yet.

      The hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) + Azithromycin + Vitamin C + Zinc protocol is clearly working for many of the front line physicians caring for patients, and based on my examination of the research articles, it makes complete sense for this particular virus, especially for short-term use in this time of need.

      Right now, hydroxychloroquine is expected to be in short supply, as the virus hits harder in the next few weeks. So the medical community needs to reserve the supplies for those who have the virus and are at highest risk or are progressing to more severe symptoms. When there is a larger supply of hydroxychloroquine and more availability for testing for COVID-19, we can consider using it earlier in the treatment plan to prevent further decline. We may also need it for the health care workers in the hospitals at risk for getting exposed for preventative treatment.

      Now is the time to use our best information available and simple reasoning to save lives… and not wait for further studies to treat patients who are very ill. According to the CDC:
      “Based upon limited in-vitro and anecdotal data, chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine are currently recommended for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in several countries. Both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have known safety profiles with the main concerns being cardiotoxicity (prolonged QT syndrome) with prolonged use in patients with hepatic or renal dysfunction and immunosuppression but have been reportedly well-tolerated in COVID-19 patients.” (emphasis mine)

      The Texas State Board of Pharmacy has passed necessary emergency measures as of last week to try to avoid running out of medicine for the patients who need it. These drugs are in very limited supply compared to the number of people projected to become critically ill.

      However, the way the ruling is currently written, it is easy to misinterpret the restrictions being placed on the pharmacists. I just spoke to the Chief Compliance Officer of the Pharmacy Board today on the phone, and he assured me the intent of this ruling is to preserve supply, NOT to deny off-label use of the drugs for COVID-19.

      While, like almost all pharmaceutical drugs, there is a chance for serious side effects, this minimizes the risk for complications, and we do not have the luxury of waiting during this unprecedented time. If we are able to identify patients who are worsening before they need to go on ventilators, we could save lives and resources.

      If you are at a hospital that is not willing to prescribe the hydroxychloroquine protocol, we are investigating whether the new “Right To Try Act” may legally provide patients access to this treatment. This law was passed in May of 2018 and allows patients with life-threatening illnesses to have access to eligible investigational drugs. Please consult an attorney, however, for legal advice.

    This is the Phase 1 Narrative: The Body Count Phase.

    Phase 1 will soon be over. Washington State’s been consistently holding at 10% case growth total cases over the last week. It’s slowing down there, and other states will see their new case growth begin to slow as well. Even in Italy, case growth is beginning to stabilize if not slow . [Note how international media coverage has begun to shift to Spain now that Spain’s death toll has surpassed Italy’s].

    The Phase 2 Narrative, “We Can’t Reopen Too Soon,” is already beginning to appear. We can detect it in stories about such topics as a “resurgence” in southeastern Asia, China’s decision to ban foreign entrance, the risk of double infections, and so on. Such narratives will attempt to justify the continued disruption of civil and economic life.

        By that time we should also know several things, such as whether social distancing has worked, whether warmer weather dampens this virus’ ability to spread, the effectiveness of HQC, and the extent it has spread in the South Hemisphere (which will tell us about seasonality, though I suspect that is a foregone conclusion at this point).

        Going by the the statistical trends we have seen in every other country “ahead” of the US time-wise, in another 2 weeks we should be past the peak in most states, or at least the ones currently with the highest number of cases.

        We will also see refinement of some policies which can, and should, replace the current broadswords with scalpels. That’s already beginning to happen in regards to supermarkets here in MA.

    Did you see him have an “Oh Crap!” moment when he said that of ALL the people hospitalized in NY for Covid 19, only about 1200 were on ventilators? Then he shifted to generalizations, and eventually changed the subject altogether.

    Cuomo is such an adept public speaker that most people probably missed his reaction, and were fooled by his parseltongue.

      When you ask him anything, he never answers “no”.

      A Long Island po-tah-to
      But yes, we have no bananas.
      We have no bananas today.”
      Business got so good for him that he wrote home today,
      “Send me Pete and Nick and Jim; I need help right away.”
      When he got them in the store, there was fun, you bet.
      Someone asked for “sparrow grass” and then the whole quartet
      All answered
      “Yes, we have no bananas
      We have-a…
