Its funny, I haven’t worn a mask since any of this SHIT started, and neither have 98% of my social circle. I am sixty years old. Not only am I not dead yet, but I have yet to speak to a single person who has actually directly (in real life, not facebook fantasyland) known anyone who has caught ‘it”. Just a couple weeks ago the Superintendent of Schools in my area sent out a VERY alarmist email, the same short of shit Eric is shilling (hope you got a nice sized cheque and aren’t foolish enough to be doing this… Read more »

Oh yea, and lets be ABSOLUTELY CLEAR, that .0036% isn’t the mortality rate, that’s the INFECTION rate here. When you consider that, even using the United Luciferian numbers, the mortality rate for those infected is around 8%, well, sorry Eric, but you go ahead and hide under the bed, I’m going out for a walk.
Honestly Eric, I don’t know what you are so worried about, this isn’t a real election anyway, and your zombie is as good as POTUS, so y’all get ready to swear allegiance to the UN, this is a done deal.

Just to hammer one more nail into Dracula’s coffin here, theres something “interesting” about our .0036 infection rate (calculated using the numbers the local ALARMISTS have so graciously provided), while they haven’t openly stated they are doing so, our provincial governments response is CLOSELY patterned on the Swedish model. While our Luciferian health minister publicly raves on, in terms of actual policy, there has been NO lock-down in my area. They did briefly close Provincial Parks (Ironic in light of the fact that our provincial parks are predominately wilderness with isolated paths, and probably about the SAFEST place you could… Read more »

The tests are faulty and are a waste of money and time. The Summit County, Ohio health dept. spokeswoman stated that one cannot expect to have the same test result twice in a row. Ohio Governor Mike Dewine took two virus tests which gave two different answers. Coronahoax is cudgel used against the West to advance the interests of global corporations and Jewish Neo-Bolshevism. Covidian Cultists are a threat to western civilization.

Kary Mullins said his test should never be used for diagnostics. a PCR 35+ Which we are using is totally useless as a diagnostic. PCR20 might have some use as an indicator of probability but that is it. He’s called Fauci a hack and Fauci and his cohorts as a group waiting for a virus to create a panic. Numbers are actually useless – want to know why China’s numbers went down so fast and dramatically ——– they changed the test. Plus Hospitals get more CARE money if they have more Covid-19 patients. Probably a lot of Hospital admins gaming… Read more »

Absolutely. There are so many holes in the Covid story, you have to be choosy about which ones you drive the truck through. Eric, you were a respected journalist once, you should be ashamed of yourself for peddling this sort of transparent partisan fairy tale. If you wanted to attack Trump for his Corporate taxation policy (which, lets face it, all he has really done is left it as multiple demonrat presidents shaped it) his failure to tear down big pharma, his failure to reign in neo-fascist big tech, his failure to behead members of the CIA and former democrats… Read more »

Eric Zeuss proves once again that Trump Voters are more likely to die than Clinton voters! Two completely unrelated things correlate to prove causation! Hurray, zeuss! Way to do “science!”

Surely listing statistics as cases per million is simply going to skew the appearance so that smallest populated states look to be in most danger.And of course the smallest populated states are the ones that vote Trump. When you check the figures for the counties with the greatest number of cumulative deaths, the trend is reversed.Twenty out of twenty five of the counties with highest death tolls were those who voted for Clinton.(shown in bold) 7,056 Los Angeles, 6,062 Queens, 5,753 Kings, 5,469 Cook, 4,060 Bronx, 3,643 Miami-Dade, 3,577 Maricopa , 3,055 Wayne, 2,806 Harris, 2,550 New York, 2,279 Middlesex,… Read more »

It is a bit sad that you’re trying to justify your dislike of Trump by distorting the data to make it appear that the middle of the US who primarily supports Trump are realizing higher numbers of deaths than places such as New York where the incompetence of Andrew Cuomo had a far bigger impact than anything Trump did or did not do. As well, Eric you seem blissfully unaware that the Governors of the state have far more power to impact things on the ground than the president. I suggest that you look at the Bill of Rights 10th… Read more »

Excellent post. As I told Eric a couple years ago, commitment to ideology completely destroys ones capacity for cognitive thought. As soon as you commit to an ideology, any thought that leads outside the boundaries dictated by the dogma of that ideology cannot be considered. Eric’s recent posts are a perfect illustration of that. I see commitment to an ideology (ANY ideology, this includes the ideology of right as well) as a mental illness, and as such, I see the vast majority of people as delusional and mentally ill. To question the Covid narrative is to question the Democrat narrative,… Read more »

They are not cases. The “test” is not a test. “Cases “ are Medical Illnesses/Conditions of all kinds of people admitted to Hospital. Serious injuries, Surgical Emergencies, Heart Attacks and much more. A fake test is meaningless. Most positive “tests” have no symptoms and feel fine.

No Eric, they don’t. As I said above, you have committed yourself to an ideology, and as I told you a year ago, that prevents cognitive thought. You dismiss anything that contradicts the dogma you have subscribed to, and blindly accept, without any examination, anything that supports it.

You really need to wake up Eric, you are supporting a fascist takeover, not just in the US. Take your ideological blinders off and look at whats going on in Victoria, in Ireland, the UK, christ, throughout most of the western world. This is not a partisan issue, my provincial government is NDP, which is about as left as left gets, and, as I pointed out, they are paying lip service to this shit, but in terms of actual POLICY they are following the Swedish model. Are you really so utterly deluded that you think the NDP government in BC… Read more »

I wouldn’t normally use Wikipedia as any kind of trustworthy resource at all, but as Eric frequently cites it as a source… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Democratic_Party And yes, Eric, I voted for them, just a couple weeks ago. I used to get a lawn sign, and have even donated money to them in the past, but as long as they are even paying lip service to the new fascism, I cannot do that anymore, and I told them so. My relationship with the NDP is long enough that they approached me and asked me to participate in the nomination process in my riding,… Read more »

It really doesn’t matter what your political leanings are. The Democratic party as it currently exists is morally indefensible. And if you are, because of your ideology, defending them in any way shape or form, you are in EXACTLY the same moral position as a German citizen defending the Nazi party in 1932/33. Many can hide behind a cloak of ignorance. As I see it, for anyone that is well-informed and capable of cognitive thought, that has to be a wilful ignorance. If you don’t want to support Trump, I can totally understand that. But then vote your conscience, and… Read more »
