On Modern Day Slavery

I was just shopping for cheap clothing, and then was convicted. I just shared with a friend, earlier, that I believe most of us are still active participants in slavery and wouldn’t be able to live the lifestyles we live without it. It isn’t in America, so we don’t see it right in front of our faces, but it IS happening. If we buy any of the following brands, at least, we are supporting the evil practice of slavery, STILL:

“Abercrombie & Fitch, Acer, Adidas, Alstom, Amazon, Apple, ASUS, BAIC Motor, BMW, Bombardier, Bosch, BYD, Calvin Klein, Candy, Carter’s, Cerruti 1881, Changan Automobile, Cisco, CRRC, Dell, Electrolux, Fila, Founder Group, GAC Group (automobiles), Gap, Geely Auto, General Motors, Google, Goertek, H&M, Haier, Hart Schaffner Marx, Hisense, Hitachi, HP, HTC, Huawei, iFlyTek, Jack & Jones, Jaguar, Japan Display Inc., L.L.Bean, Lacoste, Land Rover, Lenovo, LG, Li-Ning, Mayor, Meizu, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Mitsumi, Nike, Nintendo, Nokia, Oculus, Oppo, Panasonic, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Roewe, SAIC Motor, Samsung, SGMW, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, Sony, TDK, Tommy Hilfiger, Toshiba, Tsinghua Tongfang, Uniqlo, Victoria’s Secret, Vivo, Volkswagen, Xiaomi, Zara, Zegna, ZTE. Some brands are linked with multiple factories.”

UGH. That’s a lot. It’s convicting. It gives new perspective, for me, of some slave owners. Bear with me. I’m not saying slavery is okay, at all. Here are my thoughts about supporting modern-day slavery, and I imagine some, in the south, so long ago, felt the same way:I HATE slavery. I HATE the mistreatment of people. AND I don’t know how to get out of budgeting limitations that won’t allow me to buy all fair-trade, locally-made, hand-crafted everything. I don’t think I can even own a cell phone at all that isn’t manufactured with slave-labor. I think the only kind of vehicle we could drive is a Ford, to avoid supporting slave-labor, maybe (are they truly completely American-made?). With five kids, and the bills, and a need to put food on the table AND clothe my kids AND furnish my house, I find myself reliant on cheap goods in order to maintain my way of life….Do you guys follow?

I’m a well-meaning person. I don’t think I’m racist. I don’t hate any human group anywhere. I believe that all people were created in the image of God and I want all of them to have the same freedoms that I have.

This is a heartbreaking position!

I know there have been terrible slave owners who treated people worse than they would treat their dog. That is horrendous and I cringe thinking about it. I believe there were some well-meaning, stuck in an ugly system people, too. I think some of them did the best they could, and took in “slaves” but really treated them like children, like they were adopted. (Like Phillis Wheatley’s family), or treated adult slaves like members of the family instead of like servants. I would like to think I would have been one of them. The slaves should have been free to live where they wanted and do whatever kind of work they pleased. Period. So, no matter how good they were treated by their “masters,” it wasn’t an okay system. I think there were also people who didn’t own slaves who indirectly supported the very system they fought against, by buying cheap cotton and other goods that could only be purchased so cheaply *because* of slavery. I don’t know if they understood how their dollars supported the ugly system of slavery?

I hate slavery. I hate it. I want it to end, worldwide. I don’t want to be a part of it .Let’s start dialogue. How do we end it? For me, I’m thinking through: American-made clothing or at least not slave-labor clothing…Used furniture or American made or locally crafted. (I say that and think of dollar signs). I don’t know what to do about phones, other technology and cars.How do we end worldwide slavery together? Right now, all of us, who buy any of these brands, and so many others, are active participants, supporting slavery with our dollars. My guess is, if we buy anything “cheap,” like from Dollar Tree, Walmart, etc., we are supporting slavery. Not to throw certain businesses under the bus, but, really, how do they get such inexpensive products? What do we do? How do we get past real budget restraints and still pay people fair wages?

Update:

Okay, about my earlier post: WOW, I am so thankful to learn that we, as a country, are not going to be supporting this modern-day slavery any longer. This is new as of Sept 2020! https://www.congress.gov/…/116…/senate-bill/3471/text…https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-sanctions-chinese…/ Also, the Obama administration refused to exclude countries known for using slavery and human trafficking in his progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, according to Huffington Post. Trump got us out of that deal quickly. Biden wants to get back in. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/slavery-really_b_7462932…https://www.forbes.com/…/09/08/biden-vs-trump-on-trade/… Moral of the story? If you hate slavery, you cannot vote for Biden. He WILL have our country supporting modern-day slavery in China. Trump has fought hard to make sure America has no part in this. We can make personal choices, sure, but if we want to make a GIANT impact on current-day slavery, our vote matters this November! https://dailycaller.com/…/trump-to-prioritize-ending…/

https://patriotpost.us/opinion/72224-bidens-callous-disregard-for-chinas-human-rights-abuses-2020-07-17?fbclid=IwAR1GniGYrEMiB4yNNeCTCW5z6WAj79F2kDfvPAGnUqm82SfaB8WpLPthpiQ

“Best chance” may be an understatement. Biden is China’s only chance.” Only chance meaning, the only chance for China to be on top again in world trade, to trade freely without the tariffs Trump put in place, and to trade freely using whatever means of labor they see fit. Joe Biden has said some scary things about China, like that he “understands” their one child policy that forces women to have abortions when they want to keep their baby. Wow.

Some of my replies to others:

“As far as not supporting slave labor, Congress has passed a law that is not going to allow ships of goods that were produced with slave labor to enter our country. Trump did try to negotiate, but China “re-framed” their slavery situation and called concentration camps industry training facilities, or something like that. I think sometimes, when a country refuses to change, we have to make hard rules that impact them in big ways. That’s my thought.”

“I hear you, but if we’re using slave labor to get our cheap products, should we continue in that practice, or cut it off right away? And then, shouldn’t we just learn to deal with the higher prices, because that is reality without slave labor? I think we, as Americans, are caught in a system that is based on false realities. Mortgages, high mortgages, car payments, buying things we couldn’t afford if they were made by fairly paid workers, etc.”

“I think most Americans really do live in a completely false world (me included). Most of us live in homes we couldn’t afford to buy outright and they aren’t really ours until 30 years later. Most people have car payments on cars they can’t afford to buy outright and that they don’t technically own until 5 years later…Most people buy disposable junk products, products that make life easier, without thinking of any consequences of those products (Consequences to human life, consequences to the recycling plants or the dumps, etc…). It’s easy to get stuck in this way of life and to think it’s normal, and to not question it. But, if we were in the south and people had slaves still today, and we were having this conversation—would it be okay (looking back), to say “but if they stop slavery so abruptly, cotton will be way, way, way too expensive and people won’t be able to afford it anymore”? Having to pay more for cotton would be painful, but we would have to deal with it, right? Now that we know about how horrible slavery was in our country, of course, we’d be willing to pay more to free people, right? I think we are facing the same exact dilemma right now, but it’s not in front of our eyes and we can’t see the faces of the people being mistreated. I think China is just the first step for the President, and mainly because it’s so bad there and so big there. But we’ve known that for years. People have joked about how cheap “Made in China” products were, maybe without realizing how they were so cheap (slave labor). I’m just thankful that President Trump is standing up to it and not encouraging China to continue in these evil practices (Obama did give them freedom to continue, and Biden would too). I agree there is slavery in other places, too, and I think all of it needs to be addressed. Under-paid, poorly-treated illegal immigrants who work in our meat plants (which are owned by China, by the way) in our country have been on my mind for so many years. I personally drew a line at cheap meat from these factories a long time ago, and I only rarely buy it (it is difficult to find boneless skinless chicken breasts or drumsticks at local farms, so sometimes I compromise for variety…Wish I didn’t…). I figured out how to budget for farm-fresh meat and purposely seek out buying 1/4 of a cow, or 1/2 of a pig at a time, etc. and fill a chest freezer with that meat (it’s cheaper per pound than buying each cut individually). I stretch the meat with a lot of soups to make it so that we can afford this. I do it for two reasons: 1. Our health, I think “Good fat” is super important for a healthy gallbladder and other organs and I don’t want to feed our family bad fat (fat is where the toxins go, so pork from these factories is particularly concerning to me). 2. I don’t want to support the ugly labor practices any longer. I read a book about a woman who was an illegal immigrant working in a tomato field with her baby attached to her, and she was working directly with pesticides and got cancer. All to feed us. It’s NOT okay, and stuff like that makes me so upset. It’s one of the reasons I started a blog about agriculture and farming practices 10+ years ago. So I started becoming a farmer’s market advocate and try to go often (every weekend if I can). Okay, I am babbling….But I think, overall, mistreatment of people has to stop everywhere, and I agree, it’s going to hit us hard when we have to pay the real costs of the things we buy….But–bring it on….In reality, we should probably all live in cheap houses, and buy our meats from farms that treat their employees well, and buy cars we can buy for cash, and stop buying junk products from slave-labor in China… ❤

“I don’t think we did away with slavery. I think we just moved it overseas. 🙁

“I wrote an article on my blog once about how we don’t think about our trash. What if we all had to keep all of our own trash on our own piece of property, forever? How much more careful would we be about the disposable stuff that we use? We aren’t being good stewards.”

A Border Wall for Human Trafficking?

This is from a press briefing from February 1, 2019.

There have more arrests of human traffickers in the 3.5 years of Trumps presidency than there were in 8 years of Obama’s. The media twists the intentions of everything.

Why the wall? To prevent child trafficking and to prevent criminals from exploiting children, using them over and over, to get into our country as a “family unit.

Why separate kids from adults? To prevent child trafficking.

Kids are being brought in with people they don’t belong to, their “sponsors,” who seek to exploit them. (You may remember me sharing that as we rode an Amtrak train last fall, a woman approached Ruby and then asked me if I was her “Sponsor.” This is child trafficking language. These are the people, so many of them, an increase starting in 2008, who are coming into the country illegally and posing as families…These are the ones the media wants to keep together as a family unit–kids, with their abusers…………) This is a serious issue.

McClafferty: “And one of the indictments was a woman who was being paid $1,500 a child to take the children back to Guatemala who are not part of the actual family unit. So, she claimed to doing this 13 times, and so we found out they were recycling these children. They would bringing them up, smuggling them as part of a family group, recycle them back to Guatemala, put them in another family group, and come back up.So this was, you know, obviously an exploitation of these children.”Mr. Ballard:”I spent 12 years as a special agent, as an undercover operator, working on the southern border, working sex trafficking cases….One little girl I can tell you about. In fact, I introduced this little girl to Ms. Trump during a private briefing. This little girl was kidnapped in Central America. Eleven years old. Groomed for two years with the intent of getting her ready to come to America. Why? Because we are the highest-consuming nation of child pornography. We are the clientele that’s the big money.They brought this little girl through a part of the southern border where there was no wall, easily got her to New York City. And this is hard to hear but this is the truth, and everyone needs to hear this. This little girl — and this is very typical — raped for money every day, 30 to 40 times a day. If that’s not a crisis, if that’s not an emergency, I don’t know what is. Now, let me say this: Had there been a wall, had there been a barrier, this little girl likely would have been saved, because the traffickers would have been forced to take this child through the port of entry where we have amazing law enforcement. I’ve worked with these people. These are the best people on the planet. They can detect. They have equipment. They have trained agents.In contrast, while this was happening, I was working another case. A little boy — a Mexican boy who was kidnapped by an American trafficker, by a child pornographer. He kidnapped Mexican children, brought them to San Bernardino County, where he had a makeshift studio, made child porn with these little children. Five years old.This little boy was kidnapped in Mexicali, Mexico where there was a wall, where there is a barrier. And so he was forced to take this little boy through the Calexico port of entry. And guess what? It worked. We captured him. We rescued the little boy, and subsequently rescued 12 other children in San Bernardino, California.The difference between those two cases is two plus two equals four. The wall was a difference. The wall rescued this little boy, and the lack of a wall caused this little girl to go through a hell that is indescribable, that is not manufactured. It is a real crisis. It is a real emergency.

“Scandiffio: “The women talk about how they’re brought across the border, and one describes being put down face-down on a raft and pulled across on a rope. One driven in the back of truck, in the back of flat-bed truck. Or in the middle of the night, crossing the border into a vehicle taken to a safe house.They think their journey — the rough part of the journey is over, but little do they know, once they reach Queens, New York, that’s when their true horror begins where they’re abused, beaten, maybe not fed — all for the trafficker to take over their minds and to force them into this life of prostitution.For us, I thank God for the great work of the Border Patrol. They interdicted one of these individuals he had from females with him. From that little bit of information, we were able to uncover over 12 victims in New York, two of which were minors when they came across the border by this trafficking organization.And like Ms. Tucker stated, these poor women were asked to service 15 to 40 men a day for as little as $40. The organization was making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, which is being funneled back through Mexico.Doing this type of work for us at HSI is the most rewarding work that we could ever do because you’re saving a life; you’re saving a victim. And it’s making the public aware of this that’s out there. We did a bilateral takedown with the Mexican authorities where we arrested five of the individuals in Mexico; three of the individuals in New York. They were recently sentenced in January of this year, ranging from 8 to 25 years for the trafficking of these 12 victims to the New York area.THE PRESIDENT: And mostly are coming through the border?MR. SCANDIFFIO: Yes, Mr. President.”

Fires on the West Coast

“We are reacting to a coordinated series of attempts to start fires anywhere and everywhere in Oregon. Public and Private lands, incorporated and unincorporated areas.

By all indications so far in the preliminary stages of these investigations there is a coordinated effort on the part of these individuals to start fires in areas that are the least protected and most vulnerable then slowing working their way into more populated areas and neighborhoods.

Please take this information as an advisory for you own account and welfare and please act in good faith with due diligence to plan accordingly for your own safety and the well being of your community.”

The Media is Anti-Vax?

It’s backwards day!! CNN, Zuckerberg, Biden and Harris and so many other news outlets–they’re all on the anti-vax bandwagon now!! THIS is what so many people have been asking about and talking about for years. Now, only because Trump (the “anti-vax” presidential candidate in 2016, according to the media) is talking about a Covid-19 vax by the end of the year, all of these people are suddenly questioning vaccines. They hate Trump SO much they are even willing to diss vaccine companies. WOW!!! This is just crazy!For the record, I don’t want the Covid Vax and I won’t be taking a Flu Vax, either. I know too much. Transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre, “polio-like illnesses,” shedding flu to pregnant women and babies for two weeks after the vax…ETC. I can go on…The media switch is mind-boggling! Health bloggers were censored and even banned from social media for spreading antivax “propaganda,” and now Zuckerberg is all for this freedom of speech. Just WOW.

Persecution of the Church

The church is being persecuted!!! A friend of mine summed up the video with this list:

  • Services have to be shortened.
  • Restrooms are to be used during the service to minimize the rush.
  • No hymn books.
  • No communion.
  • No singing.
  • No offering containers.
  • No pew Bibles.
  • No hugging.
  • No shaking hands.
  • Pre-registration of every person who comes onto church property.
  • Every person must be screened and have temperature taken upon entering.
  • Must maintain 6 feet of social distance at all times everywhere, including parking lot and restrooms.
  • Anyone who comes in contact with someone outside their family for more than 15 minutes must quarantine for 14 days.
  • Every other parking space must be left vacant. *
  • Marked pathways to maintain social distance.
  • Staff monitors to keep people apart.
  • Everyone must wear a mask.
  • Restroom monitors to enforce social distancing in restrooms.
  • Tape on the ground to mark social distance in bathrooms.
  • Signs indicating these mandates.
  • Full disclosure on social media.
  • Disposable seat covers changed between services.
  • Can only meet in the tent (outside) with maximum of 300 or 400 people (I think it is an 8000 member congregation?)
  • Only allowed on church property for scheduled events.*
  • City will no longer rent the parking lot to them that they’ve been renting for over 40 years.

The REAL Conspiracy Theories Right Now

Believing Jeffrey Epstein was alone in his evil sins and that no politicians or movie stars joined him on his plane to orgie island, where he brought under-aged girls for sex.

Believing that Google, Youtube and Facebook have peoples’ best interest in mind when they censor different science, experiences and opinions, and that this is nothing like the book burning of World War II.

Believing “Social Distancing” has real science behind it, when it was a high schooler’s science fair project in 2006 and has not been studied beyond this.

Believing the antibody tests show anything beneficial at all when they really just show exposure to ANY coronavirus ever in your lifetime.

Believing crowds gathering for one political party don’t spread the virus, but crowds gathering for another political party, or crowds gathering to worship God do spread the virus.

Believing that the vaccine will be just like other vaccines, when it is an RNA vaccine and has not been used on humans before.

Believing the Covid vaccine will be safe and effective after rushed safety and efficacy tests, and when the flu vaccine is neither safe OR effective. 

Believing that BLM does anything for black people or that it’s anything more than a decomcratic campaign fund (look where the donations go). 

Believing that it is Christ-like to support BLM when they want to dismantle the nuclear family and they support Planned Parenthood.

Believing the politicians when they say “science is increasingly showing that masks work,” when no such science can be found.

Believing Snopes to be a reliable “fact checking” source. 

Believing that people who opposed lockdowns really just wanted haircuts and McDonalds, when, in fact, most of these people were losing their businesses and their families were suffering in ways that no stimulus check or unemployment money could make up for.

Believing the death counts for Covid without realizing that family members are complaining all over the world about their loved ones being marked as “Covid” deaths when they were never even tested.

Believing the case counts for Covid when test results for one person are counted up to four times.

Believing hospitals were over-run with Covid patients, when most, across the country, have been empty and have suffered financially.

Believing that we don’t have enough testing available, when test booths across the country have been empty.

Believing that our “Total Cases” of Coronavirus prove that Trump failed us without considering cases divided by population and noticing that we do not actually have more cases than every other country.

Believing that Trump was a racist for shutting down trade and travel with China at the beginning of the pandemic, but that he also didn’t shut things down soon enough.

Believing Bill Gates so loves the world that he spends his billions to save us all from a virus with a low death rate out of the goodness of his heart and that whosoever believes in him will be rescued from this virus

Believing that we really have a change shortage going on and it’s going to go back to normal soon.

Believing China wants 5G installed all over our country so that we can download movies faster. 

Believing HCQ is deadly because one study that used WAY too high of doses and on people too far into the disease, funded by Bill Gates, showed that it was, when it has been used safely and effectively for decades.

Believing HCQ does not help coronavirus patients, when Fauci said it did in 2005 and thousands (maybe millions) of patients have recovered from COVID-19 because of this drug worldwide.

Believing that everything is going to get back to normal after government lockdowns and overreach.

125 Doctors, Medical Researchers & Organizations who Support Hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19

The argument goes like this: “Facebook, Youtube and Twitter shut down those Frontline Doctors because there were only a handful of them and they were going against science.”

I tell others “It’s not just them. There are others who have been silenced as well.”

They say “If that’s true, we will hear of them, somehow.”

So I searched. The thing is, this is a list of one-hundred-and-twenty-five, and frankly, I could keep going, because there are more. I am only posting this to prove a point:

The Frontline Doctors weren’t alone in their support of doctors having the freedom to use Hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 patients.

Let’s get a couple of facts straight:

  • HCQ has been around decades longer than Remdesivir.
  • It is at least a thousand dollars cheaper.
  • In adequate doses, there are no dangerous side effects.
  • People who use Remdesivir, even at the right dose, can end up with kidney failure.
  • NEITHER med has had a double-blind-placebo study for COVID-19.
  • MANY more doctors all over the world have used Hydroxychloroquine for this virus than have used Remdesivir.

The following doctors, medical researchers and organizations have been vocal online about their support of Hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 and/or their support of doctors having the right to use it without governors making the drug political:

If you know of others, let me know! I will gladly keep adding to this list.

Covid-19: What are Front Line Workers Saying?

I will get angry e-mails and Facebook posts for this, no doubt. I want to be a voice of reason and research during this crazy time. Please read the full post before you judge, post angry comments or unlike this site forever.

Please remember Mark Twain’s warning,

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

I am concerned that far too many have been “fooled” by our current and powerful media. If this post makes you angry, I’m sorry to tell you, you have probably been fooled.

I Believe Covid-19 is Real

First, I want to start off by saying that I believe this virus is real and that it really can be deadly for some people. Where it came from is only speculation at this point. It could have come from bats, another animal, an accident from a lab, or biological warfare. The news has shared many different options, we could really choose to believe any, until the facts are hashed out.

The truth I have been attempting to uncover is:

  • Is this virus as deadly as we’re being told it is?
  • Should we all be staying home because of it?
  • And, is someone or some group or some country using this to gain control of the people in our country?

The last question may seem a little extreme. However, we live in Virginia, and our governor has used this crisis as an opportunity to pass all kinds of laws that nobody got to vote on. If people protest, they are breaking the law with a gathering of more than ten people. He has been sneaky! I do wonder what is going on behind the big smoke-screen. I do think, after all of my research, much of the media about the virus is a smoke-screen. So what else is going on?

The Narrative that the Media Wants Us to Believe

If you listen to the news, you are likely alarmed at the skyrocketing cases and deaths of Covid-19. If you look at the numbers shown on the screen, this disease looks scarier than anything we have ever faced before. If the numbers are true, of course, people would want to stay home, protect their loved ones and their elderly, fragile neighbors! The question some of us have been wondering, though, is are the numbers true?

I Asked Those on the Front Lines

I asked everybody I knew who worked in health care. How many cases were they seeing? Did they see any deaths? Is it as bad as the news portrays? I got information from: nurses in various departments, a respiratory therapist, a CNA and a firefighter. I have statistics from a large hospital in a decent-sized city and also a major hospital system that spreads across multiple pretty big cities in a particular geographic area. Want to know what I learned?

The large hospital in the decent-sized city (around 600,000 population):

  • The employee at this hospital has had their entire floor turned into a Covid-19 floor. It is mostly empty and employees are being sent home early.
  • There were 8 total Covid-19 patients in the hospital.
  • There have been 25 discharged patients from that hospital, total, (those who had Covid-19 and were able to heal and go home).
  • The hospital has seen 77 patients who tested positive for Covid-19 but were not sick enough to require hospitalization, out of the thousands of tests they have run.
  • 6 patients have passed away from Covid-19. I want to say, even though it is “only” 6, those 6 lives matter.

We are being told this disease is far more deadly than the flu, so dangerous that we need to stay in our homes, yet when you break it down, the reality at this big hospital in this decent-sized city is:

  • 6 out of 116 positive Covid-19 cases resulted in death, which means at this hospital, the disease has caused a .05% death rate of the people who were verified to be infected. Again, those lives are not insignificant, they matter! However, it is a much lower rate than what we are being led to believe in the media.
  • This is a major hospital in a city with approximately 600,000 people. If you divide 116 positive cases by 600,000 people, .0001% of the population has tested positive for Covid-19 at this hospital.
  • There are, of course, a couple of other hospitals in this city. Let’s say there are 3 major hospitals and they are all seeing the same numbers, so roughly 348 positive cases. This would mean that .0005% of the total population of the city tested positive. Note that people drive from many surrounding cities to these inner city hospitals, and if we added all of those populations, it would put the positive Covid-19 cases at an even lower percentage.
  • If you divide the deaths in the same way, calculating 18 deaths total across 3 major hospitals (since this hospital has only seen 6 and it is the largest of the three, 18 deaths may even be an inflated number. Still 18 deaths divided by 600,000 people in the population means .00003% of the total population of this city has died from Covid-19. Again, remember that many people drive to these hospitals from other nearby towns, and if we added the total populations, there would be less than a .00003% death rate.

The Major Hospital System in the Large Demographic Area

The area that this hospital system serves has a population of approximately 2.5 million people. Out of those 2.5 million, this hospital system serves approximately 40,000 people. My friend who works in this hospital system had some great quotes to share:

We are seeing really sick coronavirus patients and coronavirus patients that don’t need any support from us at all. Nothing in the middle, really sick or barely sick.

I wondered if the statistics from this hospital system would surpass the stats I got from my other friend, after hearing this. My friend sent me the statistics:

  • 4,093 patients were tested, and out of those, 372 were positive. This means .09% of patients who tested for coronavirus were positive within this hospital system.
  • There were 28 patients hospitalized across multiple hospitals and 69 total had been discharged. This means, .02% of patients who tested for coronavirus had to be hospitalized.
  • Between multiple hospitals in a large area with approximately 2.5 million people, there were 7 total deaths. Again, I do not want to undermine the deaths! These were real people, loved ones, who died, and I want to recognize that they are not just numbers.
  • If you divide 7 deaths by 4,093 patients tested, you learn that .001% of patients who thought they had coronavirus actually had it and died.
  • If you divide the 7 deaths by the 372 positive cases of the virus, .01% of positive Covid-19 cases ended in death.
  • If you divide the 7 deaths by the approximately 40,000 patients this hospital system serves, .0001% of the hospital system’s members have died from Covid-19.

One Friend is Seeing a Lack of Testing

One friend I spoke to is a nurse who works with older, vulnerable patients. They said:

Nobody I know has coronavirus even though there are a few I suspected. The criteria is so strict, they just don’t test.

This nurse has not known of anyone who died of Covid-19, though, they haven’t been testing through their company.

I think there is definitely a problem with inconsistency across the nation and between countries. This is part of what makes America so amazing–our president (any president, whether you love or hate them) isn’t a dictator. The state governors have some power over their individual states. So, testing is different and restrictions are different. I don’t know where else testing isn’t happening. I simply took a sampling from multiple friends, and this was one report.

All of my Other Friends are Seeing Empty Beds

One friend expressed thanks for the encouragement nurses are receiving because of this pandemic. They are getting meals to take home to their family and free crocs. This friend also mentioned that the hospital she works for is has many empty beds.

Another nurse-friend said:

The hospitals are not seeing the numbers they expected. The deaths they are seeing are really old facility patients who would have died from the flu.

Again, though, I want to emphasize, these are lives. Just because they would have died from the flu, it doesn’t mean their life was any less valuable. AND–we need to pay attention to how deadly this disease really is. The news is telling us that coronavirus has a mortality rate of 3 to 4%, but this isn’t what these large hospitals and hospital systems are seeing. They are seeing mortality rates of .01 to .05%.

California Doctors Are Also Seeing Low Numbers

You’ve likely seen the videos by Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi shared in a press conference in California. In case you missed it, here is a clip of some of the important information;

These doctors calculated that 12% of Californias tested positive for Covid-19 and that there was a 0.03% chance of dying from the virus in California.

Both doctors were brave to stand up and share the statistics they are seeing. It is verifiable information, too–it’s not “fake news.” You can research the very statistics they share. Yet, their video keeps being taken down from YouTube and social media channels. Why? Because it doesn’t fit the narrative that we are being told to believe: that Covid-19 is more deadly than the flu and will continue to kill thousands (or millions) of people if we don’t stay home.

What About New York?

We have been hearing about the large number of deaths in New York City. I am sad for the people of New York City & the great loss that they have faced!!

Seeing the news about the deaths and cases in New York City would naturally strike fear into anyone. We wonder if the rates of infection and death that New York City has faced could happen to any one of our cities. A friend who is a nurse used to work at some of these hospitals in NYC. The first thing this friend said about the NYC hospitals in the news is:

It’s amazing they keep their patients alive at all.

and,

The hospitals that are on the news that are overrun–they are over-run on a good day. They are set up that way. They can’t function well on a regular day. A patient in the hall on a stretcher is normal any day in those hospitals.

One nurse practitioner spoke up for a friend, saying that the ventilators, on high pressure, used by nurses who have not been trained in using a ventilator, is what has caused so many deaths. I cannot verify this report, but you can see that video here. I don’t know anything about the site that her video is posted on. Only that this video has been removed, like the California doctor’s videos from other, mainstream channels. Again, it doesn’t fit the narrative that we are being taught to believe.

Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who has worked in the ICU and ER in New York, confirms that ventilators are not the answer for COVID-19 patients. I started following him on Twitter to get more up-to date information.

This Disease is Being Hyped Up

There is NO doubt that this disease is being hyped up and made to look like it is more prevalent than it is. We are being kept in our homes and businesses are failing over this hyped up news. People are depressed and dying due to social isolation. How much longer will we, the people, put up with this?

Why Are We Still Using Ventilators?

Our governor still referenced ventilators in his press conference. Many are. I don’t understand why, when multiple doctors have come out and said that the ventilators are not the answer? That this isn’t like a normal respiratory virus, this is more like elevation sickness or cyanide poisoning and they have hypoxic injury in their lungs. When you add high pressure through a ventilator to hypoxic injury, it is certain death with multi-organ failure. This is Dr. Sidell, straight out of New York, on the front lines, talking to Web MD. This was early April, over a month ago. How many lives could have been saved if this doctor (and so many others speaking out with the same information) were heard?

Also, 80% of patients in NY who were put on a ventilator died. Let’s remember that as we move forward…

Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Timeline

Whether you want the v@x or not, we should all be concerned about it’s *safety* especially since this type has never been used on humans before.

859 days of safety, efficacy and licensing (which also looks at safety & efficacy) are being shaved off in order to get this done quickly. Did you read that, though? 859 days that would usually be spent on making sure it’s actually safe and effective are being bypassed, ignored, skipped…

Safety….Efficacy…Is it ok for humans? Does it even work? These are super important pieces to the v@x approval process…

Would you drive a car that went through expedited crash testing?

This is a non-partisan issue. We all want to be *safe* right?

I used the diagram on Bill Gates’ Gates Notes site. I printed it, and measured in centimeters to figure out the scale of how many days per cm. The bottom chart (under 18 months) is not in the same scale as the top chart. The size of the bottom chart would be over 2 years if it was in the same scale. I don’t think that was an accident, to make it appear less alarming that this v@x will be administered to humans so quickly.

I believe we should all be concerned.

If this takes 18 months (and I believe they are pushing to have it take less time):

Safety & dose trial will happen in 62% of the time it usually takes.

Safety & Efficacy, 22%–TWENTY TWO PERCENT of the time it usually takes. You can’t skimp of safety!

Licensing–5% FIVE PERCENT of the time it usually takes.

There is one stage missing from this chart, and that is the Exploratory Stage that happens before Clinical Trials. Are they skipping over that, too?

Another thing to note is that this chart is misleading. It’s showing the timeline for a *normal* type of v@x. It does not mention that this is an RNA/DNA v@x and totally different from anything that has ever been used on a human. It has never been proven safe. Now they’re going to rush it through,

while shaving off 859 days EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE DAYS of procedures that a normal v@x has to go through in order to make sure it is SAFE.

Here are the CDC pages I reference: here and here.

Note the “over 7 billion people quickly…” which is the entire world. Like everyone will be okay with that.
