CBS Margaret Brennan (in best dramatic voice): “There Will Be A Lot of Death This Week”…

For today’s best example of how influence agents promoting civil obedience through the use of drama and fear, we turn to Margaret Brennan interviewing Dr. Fauci.

With studio hair & makeup no longer an option, Dr. Fauci started rolling back his media appearances. However, Fauci appears today for an interview with a very dramatic Ms. Brennan as the host announces: “there will be a lot of death this week.”  WATCH:

        And THIS directive from the CDC explains WHY COVID-19 death counts will skyrocket in the coming weeks…basically, whether a test was performed or not, whether the patient had underlying conditions or not, whenever anyone dies with condition that even resembles the flu or pneumonia, then tag it as COVID-19!!

        “However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID-19 being the underlying cause more often than not.”

        Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned that if the coronavirus outbreak does not get “globally under control,” it is likely to become a recurring problem.

        Fauci echoed officials who warned that the coming week will be a bad one with the number of deaths expected to increase to a “shocking” degree, but said that social distancing practices will help flatten the curve of cases.

        BILL GATES: PANDEMIC IS ‘NIGHTMARE SCENARIO,’ BUT NATIONAL RESPONSE CAN REDUCE CASUALTIES

        “Unless we get this globally under control there’s a very good chance that it will assume a seasonal nature,” Fauci told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
        Fauci said that people must be prepared for a resurgence next year, which is why officials fighting the pandemic are pushing for a vaccine and clinical trials for therapeutic interventions so “we will have interventions that we did not have” when this started.

        He just admitted that the total number of deaths will be a constant and will occur either now or over time. Also, there has never been a successful vaccine against a coronavirus.

      I said a month ago that the proper public health measure was to isolate the elderly and infirm, and let younger, healthy people live normal lives. The pandemic would have given tens of millions of Americans a brief illness, with very few requiring hospitalization, much less ICU care. We would have developed herd immunity within 8-12 weeks, and then we could let grams and gramps see their children and grandkids.

      What we are doing now is wrong on so many levels. We have people who are very sick, some even dying, and they cannot be comforted by their families. This is inhumane.

      I briefly thought Dr. F was the famous NIH virologist who thought he deserved a Nobel Prize for isolating HIV, but that was Robert Gallo. Dr. F’s fame arose from championing enormous funding to find a cure for AIDS. His campaigning was wildly successful: for a time HIV/AIDS research funding dwarfed funding for cancer, heart disease and diabetes, when adjusted to a per capita patient basis. Anti-retrovirals gave HIV patients essentially normal lifespans, which could not be said for cancer, diabetes and heart disease therapies.

      NIAID, Dr. F’s institute received whooping increases in funding, which greatly empowered the Director, and generated lasting loyalties among many acolytes. Dr. F was more than a bureaucrat par excellence, he was a shrewd politico.

      As to his expertise in coronavirus or any other respiratory virus, it may lag the knowledge of community family practitioners, pediatricians and internists who have treated thousands of patients with respiratory illnesses. When your main job is managing a large organization, and supervising a lab researching one disease, you don’t have time to become a leading expert in other diseases.

          The “experts” are saying that the US is about 2 weeks behind Italy in its Covid-19 stage-of-epidemic.

          Interestingly, Worldometers shows that Italy hit a peak of new daily reported infections a week ago. The new case count started to show a bell-curve downslope but then rose, creating a new second peak, lower than the first peak. This may represent outbreaks outside Lombardy, e.g. Rome and Southern Italy.

          We are still in the exponential-growth phase, or at or near in inflection point (bar and line graphs are discrepant). If the business shutdown and social distancing are effective, we should know this within 2 weeks, or even perhaps later this week.

    The extreme propaganda, panic and hysteria that he is promoting 24/7 makes him and the rest of his buddies in the Fake News, guilty of domestic terrorism in my humble opinion.
    We are in more danger of dying from unemployment, heart disease, cancer, drug overdoses or car accidents than we are from the Chi Com Flu.
    We are seeing anecdotal and credible reports from all over that hospitals even in NY are not as overflowing as the media is claiming.
    We also have it from actual scientists and known experts and epidemiologists that there are other ways to deal with this virus than to put most of the citizens of our Country under HOUSE ARREST which is basically where we’re at now.
    I have faith in our President Trump and believe he will do the right thing sooner than later. But we are playing this awfully close for now.
    Just for starters, tell Fauci, Birx and the rest of the Deep Staters to get lost. Those of us in the Blue States are getting crushed by ever increasing, nonsensical and tyrannical regulations. Soon all of our parks and beaches are going to be shut down. Already where I live one of the Hudson River cities is probably going to shut down the gigantic riverfront park that has plenty of room for people to walk around and keep their distance. It’s spring in NY- one of the most beautiful times of the year and we are being told to stay inside.
    Soon they will be shutting down more stores and restaurants.
    Please Mr. President, end the Lock Down soon.

    • Seneca, isn’t it up to the mayors and governors as to what is shut down? From what I’ve seen President Trump has been recommending but leaving it up to the individual states. He just asks that you do the social distancing, wash your hands and now maybe wear a mask. One city (about 40 miles from me) has instituted a curfew no where the closest city (30 miles from me) has not. I think your problem is your gov and the widespread outbreak in your state, not necessarily President Trump.

        The President has a major weapon to use in ending the shut down … money. He can withdraw his support for state level emergency declarations and with draw the national level pronouncements. Those two steps take a huge amount of federal money away from the governors playing the virus for political purposes. The President can implement a “controlled” reopening and force governors to prepare State Wide situation reports. There will still be “hot spots” to address as well as support with Federal assets but allot of the nation can be reopened this way. By working the “hot spots” on a case by case basis, the President offers a win-win for all the governors, no matter the veracity of the “hot spot” definition.

    Welcome to earth. There was a lot of death in 2009 (H1N1) and in 2018 (H2N3, which did had a vaccine but proved 25% effective per reports). People with compromised systems were advised to take precautions, and those with common sense did.

    The general populace could’ve canceled school and business and hid, but they didn’t, and baceterial and viral-related hospitalizations — which always had a considerable baseline — surged to a degree. In 2018, it was attributed to the aforementioned flu shot ineffectiveness, but the thought of shuttering to this current level wasn’t being forwarded as an appropriate response despite that reality that “there will be deaths”.

    Getting to the no new deaths and cases as Fauci reportedly put as a goal is by no means guaranteed by continued shuttering of schools and businesses. There may not be even a flattened curve of hospitalizations and deaths to the acceptability level and shifting goalposts being put out given what other contagions may surge and mutate as a result of real life in the real world. This needs to be pointed out and prioritized in the midst of talking head land so that perspective and reality can return to the fore.

    In his own words, paraphrasing;
    Testing is important, not only for diagnostic purposes i.e. to tell if someone is infected, but also vital in order to get DATA, in order to detirmine thecrate of penetration of the virus, the rate of exposure, rate of recovery.

    Specifically, tests that will confirm diagnoses 8 hours after administering are ALMOST useless.

    Tests thatcwill detirmine antibodies, hence immunity, 8 hours after administration, ALMOST useless.

    Particularly for the second purpose, of obtaining accurate DATA necesary, in order to detirmine an appropriate responce.

    And, having a small # of tests, so that they have to be ‘doled out’, rationed basically, is grossly insufficient, cause if the tests are beingvreserved for the first purpose, the collective results will inevitably lead to bad data, for the second.

    And this was all FORESEEABLE. Especially for someone whose whole career is in infectious disease, and who is going to be in the lead, as the expert in coordinating a responce.

    And, PDJT “inherited” a BROKEN system, for developing such tests, and ramping up production.

    And WHO is it, who dropped the ball?

        Exactly.
        For me, it breaks down to two questions, leading to a conclusion, everything else is chaff and countermeasures;
        Firstly, in this WW4 contest of Globalists vs Nationalists, WWJD?
        Is God a Globalist, or a Nationalist?

        Seems pretty clear to me, both with their lieing (Satan IS the Father of lies) and WHAT the Globalists advocate for, Abortion, pornography, being largely anti-christian, etc.
        that Globalist are Satans forces.

        So, God SHOULD then be a Nationalist, right? Firstly, he singled out ONE people, as his “Chosen people”; doesn’t sound very “Globalist” to me!
        Secondly, we have the Tower of Babel. A firm Divine vote in favor of Nationalism, if you ask me.

        So, God is supporting Nationalism over Globalism.
        Is DJT’S victory over the Uniparty, any more improbable than Davids, over Goliath?
        In his earlier years, DJT citisen certainly engaged in some questionable behaviors, from a Christian point of view.
        But hey, at 16 I was burglarising homes and businesses, and trading the loot for drugs I used and sold.
        At 17 I cut out the middleman, burglarising drug stores.

        And paid a severe price for my evil ways, spent time up river, fought and with Jesus’s help beat back addiction, etc.

        Not proud of it, but its how I got to where I am. Point is, its not for me to Judge how DJT got to where HE is.
        Since the escalator, I can not fault his efforts, and the way he continues to thwart the designs of his enemies, turning all their attacks back on them, is to me further evidence he is being used by our Lord.

        This virus, it seems to me, is another clear example of God ‘weighing in’ against the Globalist satan worshipers.
        In everything from banning disposable straws and shopping bags, to getting crap manufactured in CHI-NA, closing the border, and on and on, it makes the argument, so eloquently, that the policies PDJT is pursuing are,RIGHT, and Globalism is the road to perdition.

    So what happens if the deaths aren’t as high as predicted?

    I understand that this is a nasty disease and severe cases are very dire. However, I can’t resolve the test data with what they’re claiming. Over 90% of those with flu-like symptoms who are able to be tested do not have the China virus. But if this thing was truly as bad as they claim, it seems like we would either be seeing a drastic uptick in those testing percentages, or a lot of mild cases suddenly going supernova and crowding into our ERs. It’s been a steady increase, yes, but not catastrophic.

    How many “elective” surgeries are being foregone for this? How many people with mild injuries, early cancers, other serious illnesses, are not getting treatment? How many women have had to forego fertility treatments? How many special needs children are losing much needed therapy? How many other lives are being impacted negatively, perhaps permanently, by this madness?

      Nan,
      All great questions. We can measure the amount of losses due to this in the stock market and the jobs market and the additional government spending. But their are immeasurable costs due to the issues you raise and my bet is that these costs are enormous.

      My 27 year old Downs Syndrome daughter hasn’t been to her Day Services program in 4 weeks. She has quit asking me when she is going back to see her friends. She just assumes she is never going back. I try to reassure her but she has let her cell phone die and won’t text her friends. A lot of raised voice in the house because everyone is frustrated and bored. We can’t just enjoy our “vacation” cuz hubby has been laid off and there is no money. So, yes, lives are being impacted. We are all going to need therapy when this is over.
      Not trying to play victim because I am not. Just wanted to state some real facts.

      They will not test for Covid-19 anti-bodies (acquired immunity) even though they have the capacity – because they already know there is a huge reservoir of people who have acquired immunity – they don’t want us to know. Us knowing it would spoil their last best coup attempt.

      • JAS says:

        If models in general were any good there would be no reason at all to play the Superbowl.

        It’s called the butterfly effect in chaos theory. A butterfly flaps its wings in China and the weather becomes unpredictable in North America. In chaos theory any complex system is extremely sensitive to initial conditions.

        Models try to overcome this by running computer intensive thousands of runs with different initial conditions, which are oftentimes unknown. Then they give results as worse case, best case, and mean (average), after discarding the ones they down like (not feasible in their opinion). And that, is how it works.

        What could go wrong with that?

    More disciples of Satan playing ‘God’ with their predictions…they are all false prophets. A friend of mine who works in the medical field said most flu deaths are being reported as Covid even if it’s from other pre-existing conditions because that is how the CDC wants the hospitals to report, and testing is taking 2 to 5 days for results.

    Fauci is like one of those cult climate scientist saying we only have 12 years to extinction relying upon computer model after model that keeps getting it wrong. Unfortunately POTUS is between a rock and a hard place with this guy and the media. If POTUS challenges Fauci and his b.s. doomsday models, he will be labeled a science denier and unfit for office. The move to oust Fauci has to start coming from loyal conservative congress people and a full on blitz by right wing media making it clear that Fauci has been wrong again and again and that the models have been wrong again and again such that their is a screaming chorus to remove this quack. It must be relentless and immediate or the country will be ruined for 50 years.

      Where are all the Republican governors, senators, House members speaking up for the President? It reminds me of the fist year with the rat Ryan as Speaker of the House, and the President standing all alone. I so thoroughly hate these cowardly SOB’s.

    Only because they seem to be refusing to treat all 300,000 infected people or the ones who can take it in the US with the 3 ingredient cocktail (hydroxychloroquine, z-pack and zinc)

    IMO there is very little reason to not give this to them unless the patient personally refuses, they are on a ventilator or some other personal medical history/issue that would keep them away.

    I see very little down side in trying, considering it’s a drug that is already FDA Approved, we have tons of data on it and we have numerous examples where this regime has helped COVID-19 positive patients.

    I guess in the end if it gets the numbers closer to the model if maybe that is the real goal here.

    IMO they truly should be fired.

    Listen to him at around 4:30 – we need to do clinical trials so that we may have therapeutic interventions that we DO NOT HAVE this year + This is a quick attempt at transcript, but I think I caught his meaning.

    Fauci does not intend for us to have access to the HCQ/Z-pac with zinc therapy that other nations across the world are using successfully. Why did President Trump, in yesterday’s press conference say – HCQ works, I hope they use it, we have a huge stock pile, and getting more every day, I hope they use it.

    What does that mean? Is President Trump a suggester in chief.

    Fauci needs to be gone, he does not have our best interest at heart.

    Today’s Coronavirus deaths update.
    Percentages staying pretty much the same overall. The top 20 places in the US account for 63.36% of the deaths. The top 10 places account for 54.22% of the deaths. The top 5 places account for 46.14% of the deaths. The top five today are: New York City with 24.34%, New York State with 14.99%, Wayne Michigan with 2.72%, King County Washington with 2.16% and Bergen County New Jersey with 1.93%.

    New York State combined accounts for 40.02%.

    The rest of the US outside of the top 20 accounts for 36.64%.

    Think about that the next time your governor decides to infringe on your rights.

      Sorry if I wasn’t clear. What I was trying to point out was that I just saw direct evidence that first-responders in my community apparently feel safe enough to go to the grocery store without employing simple precautions like gloves or masks! Obviously, this sends a pretty strong message to us ordinary citizens that we may be overreacting to this pandemic. (Or whatever it is). Or maybe these guys know something we don’t??
      My goal is to not get sick, period. So, after shopping, I removed the gloves and threw them away, then used hand sanitizer once I got in the car. When I got home, I washed the groceries prior to putting them away. It’s a bit of a hassle, but it beats 7-14 days in bed with the Chinese Flu.

      Fauci, since day 1 has been saying that what we see today won’t reflect reality until next week. Not a single reporter has bothered to ask him “why the hell does what you said last week not look like what you said it would THIS week”. I’ve been working spreadsheets since early Feb and felt strongly this can’t possibly approach h1n1, not even close. I don’t need to be a virologist to create simple spreadsheets based on CDC inputs and data. All I know is I’m tired of the massaging of the numerators and denominators. We needed to AVERAGE over 200,000 infections per day, every day between now and Jan 2021 in order to do so. The curve was never even close to headed that way and with the peak in the next week infections will start to drop, as will deaths. The actual mortality rate sits just north of the common flu based on the CDC release of flu season data for Oct 2019
      – March 2020.

      That said, Fauci needs to be called out. He needs to be asked why he made claims HIV = Aids when in fact it never did. Zambia with 60% of the population infected with HIV is NOT dying from AIDS, they never have. This is the same event on a grander scale and the front of a global law similar to Denmark where they passed on March 16, 2020 legislation that can FORCE you to take CV-19 vaccine. There is a sunset clause for one year, but where is the vaccine you ask? Maybe WHO knows, maybe gates, zuck etc but we know it doesn’t exist yet.

      Has anyone said what a life is worth yet? If we saved 200,000 lives in the US, the $5 TRILLION hit (minimum) to the economy means we spent $25,000,000 per life saved. Hold on, a sec, I’m writing my check, just wondering WHO to make it out to…
