More non-virus causal factors in “epidemic cases”—hospitals

More non-virus causal factors in “epidemic cases”—hospitals
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)
As my long-time readers know, since 1987 in my investigations of fake epidemics, I’ve deployed the strategy of finding actual causes of illness and death that have nothing to do with the latest and greatest hype about a “new virus” creating widespread harm.

In other words, I show there is no need to invoke a novel and unproven virus, in order to explain the so-called epidemic effects.

I have been doing that all along during this false COVID pandemic.

In today’s episode of medical worshipers go crazy and virus fakery, let’s go to the hospitals to find yet more NON-VIRUS causes of illness and death in supposed “coronavirus patients.”

Three questions:

If hospitals are overwhelmed with patients, as night follows day it must be the coronavirus.  Right?

WRONG.

If patients are on breathing ventilators, as night follows day their problem must be the coronavirus.  Right?

WRONG.

If patients are being put on ibuprofen, as night follows day their problem must be the coronavirus.  Right?

WRONG.

Before I explain what “wrong” means in each instance, an overview of hospital care in the US is instructive.  The reference is Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.  Starfield’s review was: “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”  She blows the whistle on her own elite colleagues and vast numbers of other medical providers.  Among her findings:

Annual number of deaths caused by mistreatment and errors in US hospitals: 119,000.

This should give pause for thought.  Instead of blithely assuming that so-called coronavirus patients who die in hospitals are dying from the virus, consider the effects of care IN the hospitals.

Now let’s get to the three questions I asked above.  What about overwhelmed hospitals?  Surely, this must mean coronavirus cases are the cause, right?  What else could it be?  Overwhelmed hospitals are a new phenomenon, paralleling the rise of COVID, right?

Here, from Time magazine, is a sample report from 2018, long BEFORE COVID supposedly emerged.  “Hospitals overwhelmed by flu patients are treating them in tents”:

“The 2017-2018 influenza epidemic is sending people to hospitals and urgent-care centers in every state, and medical centers are responding with extraordinary measures: asking staff to work overtime, setting up triage tents, restricting friends and family visits and canceling elective surgeries, to name a few.”

“‘We are pretty much at capacity, and the volume is certainly different from previous flu seasons’,” says Dr. Alfred Tallia, professor and chair of family medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey. ‘I’ve been in practice for 30 years, and it’s been a good 15 or 20 years since I’ve seen a flu-related illness scenario like we’ve had this year’.”

“Tallia says his hospital is ‘managing, but just barely,’ at keeping up with the increased number of sick patients in the last three weeks. The hospital’s urgent-care centers have also been inundated, and its outpatient clinics have no appointments available.”

“The story is similar in Alabama, which declared a state of emergency last week in response to the flu epidemic. Dr. Bernard Camins, associate professor of infectious diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, says that UAB Hospital cancelled elective surgeries scheduled for Thursday and Friday of last week to make more beds available to flu patients.”

“‘We had to treat patients in places where we normally wouldn’t, like in recovery rooms,’ says Camins. ‘The emergency room was very crowded, both with sick patients who needed to be admitted and patients who just needed to be seen and given [toxic] Tamiflu’.”

“In California, which has been particularly hard hit by this season’s flu, several hospitals have set up large ‘surge tents’ outside their emergency departments to accommodate and treat flu patients. Even then, the LA Times reported this week, emergency departments had standing-room only, and some patients had to be treated in hallways.”

“The Lehigh Valley Health System in Allentown, Pennsylvania, set up a similar surge tent in its parking lot on Monday, in response to an increase in patients presenting with various viral illnesses, including norovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and the flu. ‘We’ve put it into operation a couples times now over the last few days,’ said a hospital spokesperson. ‘I think Tuesday we saw upwards of about 40 people in the tent itself’.”

“Many hospitals are also encouraging visitors to stay away. Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center announced last week that it was temporarily restricting visits from children 14 and under and anyone with flu symptoms. ‘This measure is to prevent unnecessary spread of influenza and to protect you, our patients, and our staff,’ the health system posted on Facebook.”

“Loyola University Health System in Chicago—which set a hospital flu-activity record of 190 confirmed cases between January 7 and 13—has also instituted similar visitor restrictions, although a spokesperson for the hospital says it’s a standard precaution for flu season. Loyola also requires all employees to receive a mandatory flu shot, a policy it started in 2009.”

“In Fenton, Missouri, SSM Health St. Clare Hospital has opened its emergency overflow wing, as well as all outpatient centers and surgical holding centers, to make more beds available to patients who need them. Nurses are being ‘pulled from all floors to care for them,’ says registered nurse Jennifer Braciszewski, and are being offered an increased hourly rate to work above and beyond their normal schedules. Many nurses have also become sick, however, so the staff is also short-handed…”

—All this, before 2019.  Before the “epidemic.”

You can find other stories of such hospital problems.  In Italy, for example, before the “epidemic,” the waiting lists for hospital appointments could stretch out for months—revealing the whole system was heavily stressed, already overburdened, and short-staffed before the latter part of 2019.

Second question: If patients are on breathing ventilators, as night follows day their problem must be the coronavirus.  Right?

Not necessarily.  For example, what about potential adverse effects of the ventilators themselves?  From the US National Institutes of Health, here is a list of those effects.  As you read them, keep in mind that many hospital patients entering the wards already have pneumonia (and, of course, breathing problems):

“One of the most serious and common risks of being on a ventilator is pneumonia. The breathing tube that’s put in your airway can allow bacteria to enter your lungs. As a result, you may develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).”

“The breathing tube also makes it hard for you to cough. Coughing helps clear your airways of lung irritants that can cause infections.”

“VAP is a major concern for people using ventilators because they’re often already very sick. Pneumonia may make it harder to treat their other disease or condition [like PNEUMONIA].”

“…Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for other problems, such as:
* Pneumothorax (noo-mo-THOR-aks). This is a condition in which air leaks out of the lungs and into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. This can cause pain and shortness of breath, and it may cause one or both lungs to collapse.
* Lung damage. Pushing air into the lungs with too much pressure can harm the lungs.
* Oxygen toxicity. High levels of oxygen can damage the lungs.”
“These problems may occur because of the forced airflow or high levels of oxygen from the ventilator.”

“Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for blood clots and serious skin infections. These problems tend to occur in people who have certain diseases and/or who are confined to bed or a wheelchair and must remain in one position for long periods…”

Third question: can ibuprofen cause problems?

From drugs[dot]com, here is a list of adverse effects from Advil:

“Advil can increase your risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if you use it long term or take high doses, or if you have heart disease. Even people without heart disease or risk factors could have a stroke or heart attack while taking this medicine.”

“Do not use this medicine just before or after heart bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG).”

“Advil may also cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal. These conditions can occur without warning while you are using ibuprofen, especially in older adults.”

“You should not use Advil if you are allergic to ibuprofen, or if you have ever had an asthma attack [breathing problems] or severe allergic reaction after taking aspirin or an NSAID.”

“Ask a doctor or pharmacist if it is safe for you to take this medicine if you have:
* heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or if you smoke;
* a history of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot;
* a history of stomach ulcers or bleeding;
* asthma;
* liver or kidney disease;
* fluid retention; or
* a connective tissue disease such as Marfan syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, or lupus.”

“Taking Advil during the last 3 months of pregnancy may harm the unborn baby. Do not use this medicine without a doctor’s advice if you are pregnant.”

“It is not known whether ibuprofen passes into breast milk or if it could affect a nursing baby. Ask a doctor before using this medicine if you are breastfeeding.”

NOTE: Antiviral drugs, given to many people diagnosed with COVID, have serious toxic adverse effects.

Getting the picture?  It isn’t always the reason a person COMES to hospital which causes the worst problem. It can be what happens IN the hospital, including death.  Unrelated to any purported COVID virus.  And yet, the increased illness or death would be written up as a “coronavirus case.”

End the Shutdown

Shuttered Business

1 hour ago

The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives.

Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, business closures, restrictions on assembly and movement, and quarantines are not constitutionally permissible under some magic “emergency” doctrine. At a minimum, the federal government must show potential imminent harm by specific infected individuals at some form of hearing or trial.

These due process requirements are not suspended.

State and local officials may claim, or even possess, lawful police powers to shut down their communities. We offer no analysis of such powers or claims under the myriad of state constitutions and authorizing legislation. But they should resist exercising these powers. The governor of Virginia, in particular, deserves admonition for unilaterally imposing a lengthy period of virtual house arrest.

We do not know, and cannot yet know, how many Americans will become sick or die from the virus. We do know that predictions regarding infection and death rates are highly unreliable. Even actual deaths attributable to COVID-19 are not so easy to count, as Italy has discovered. Age, general health, and comorbidity are difficult variables to assess, and people may die “with” the virus but not “from” it. It is also very difficult to assess the lethality of the virus relative to previously known types of flu and colds.

To date, COVID-19 deaths in the US are far fewer than deaths in ordinary flu seasons or from past pandemics such as the H1N1 virus. This understanding is critically important to put the virus, and the government response to it, in perspective. Even during past pandemics, depressions, and world wars, Americans went to work.

In 1850, French economist Frédéric Bastiat helped the world understand the “seen and unseen costs” of state policies. It is simple to see how quarantines and lockdowns will slow the spread of COVID-19. It is critical, but not so simple, to see the costs and harms caused by the economic shutdown.

Only then can we rationally understand the tradeoffs involved.

How many Americans suffering from other illnesses cannot see a doctor now? How many Americans will lose their jobs, their life savings, their retirement prospects, and their incalculable feeling of self-worth? How many will succumb to depression, drug or alcohol abuse, and suicide? How many will lose their homes, divorce their spouses, or suffer abuse? How many will never recover in their careers? How many small businesses, including the vital ones of doctors, dentists, and veterinarians, will vanish from your community? How many young people will “fail to launch”?

Worse still, will grocery stores and gas stations remain open and stocked? Will crime spike? Will the American social fabric, already thin from politics, tear apart?

These questions are not rhetorical. All of these things happened, to a degree, following the Great Recession of 2008. They will happen again—very soon—if we fail to act immediately. Tomorrow, on April 1, millions of Americans will not pay rent or mortgages. Millions of small businesses will shutter, just as many large employers such as Macy’s, Kohl’s, airlines, and hotels already have. Millions of service workers are unemployed already, but many more jobs will be lost. The effects will cascade.

There is no conflict between humanitarian and economic concerns; in fact they are flipsides of the same coin. A poorer America will be a much less healthy America, one more vulnerable to future illness and disease. Technology, modern medicine, and market actors can address a virus; already we see entrepreneurs producing cheaper ventilators and doctors using cheap generic drugs with very promising results.

This local, bottom-up approach is the only effective way to confront the virus. The federal government, as we see now and have in the past, is comically incapable of competence in times of crisis.

On a fundamental level, freedom really is more important than security—or, in this case, an illusion of security. We all demonstrate this in our personal lives every day, from flying to driving to riding bicycles, to consuming unhealthy food and drink simply because we like it. Security has never been the sole or even primary goal for a country born in rebellion.

Government cannot decide what aspects of our lives are essential or nonessential. The American people cannot simply sit at home and wait for government checks written on funds that government does not have.

End the shutdown.

War With The International Banking Cartel? Or NESARA?

Dear Andy,

The story about the Fed merging with the Treasury, with the Fed OWING the $22 trillion debt and the Treasury OWNING the secured assets and interest on the US’ $22 trillion debt, thus making the debt “the asset of the American People” has really gotten a lot of us excited. Wouldn’t that be amazing, if true?

My Internet-illiterate, yet investment-savvy friend (who gave me garbled info about the Federal Reserve website’s URL change) insists that the Treasury hasn’t “taken over” the Fed. However, he does say that “the man in the White House figured out how to cut a deal and get things done – it will save a lot of businesses.”

He says that what the Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) devised by the Trump Administration will do is enable the Treasury to finance this $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package WITHOUT INTEREST.

Another person who does not believe for one second that our national debt has become our national asset is Catherine Austin Fitts.

She responded on Sunday about the Q post, that it “Described turning over enormous Fed Powers to BlackRock and described that as putting Patriots in charge of the Fed. The guy who runs BlackRock was going to be Clinton’s Secretary of Treasury. I used to work with BlackRock. NO PATRIOTS THERE!”

BlackRock is the world’s largest asset manager, with $7.4 trillion in assets under management. It is a leading player of the Globalist financier establishment.

Still, Q posted about these SPVs for a reason…

Remember ten days ago, I told you about that weird phone call my retired Marine friend received from a 3-Star General? This friend has had an asset recovery business for years and the premise of the phone call was to potentially hire him as a contractor to transport massive amounts of prisoners – people who were about to be arrested. To whit, “160,000 in 90 days.”

Clearly, this briefing was laden with disinformation. The General said the financial assets of the Globalist bankster cabal would be seized to repay the US Government’s $22 trillion debt, the IRS and the Fed will be abolished and thereafter, there would only be a consumption tax. There would be medical breakthroughs, the release of suppressed information about alternative energy and the long-awaited disclosure about extraterrestrial life – plus travel to planets outside the Solar System for regular folks.

All of this is straight-up NESARA. Why was this general talking about NESARA?

Have any of you ever received those starry-eyed emails about NESARA? I have. Ten years ago, I was being deluged with emails from folks who were positively enraptured by NESARA. It’s the original Hope Porn. I guess they didn’t do a very good job of explaining it to me, because I came away associating NESARA with proponents of Hatonn, the Arcturian Council and the Ashtar Command.

Well, I just found out something crazy.

NESARA, which stands for the National Economic Security and Recovery Act was conceived by Harvey Francis Bernard, who held a doctorate in Systems Theory that he applied to economics.

NESARA was an economic recovery proposal based on the root causes he identified, namely that debt is the number one economic factor inhibiting the growth of the economy and that compound interest is the number one “moral evil”. In the mid-1990s, he sent copies to members of Congress, believing it would pass quickly on its merits – but it was ignored. In 2000, he released the proposal into the public domain on his website.

NESARA was subsequently hijacked by a New Age “cybercult queen”, Shaini Candace Goodwin (aka “Dove of Oneness”), who claimed the act had been signed into law by President Bill Clinton and that it was about to be implemented at 10AM on September 11, 2001 – but that the computers and data on the beneficiaries of the trillions in “Prosperity Funds” were destroyed in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, which she claimed were orchestrated by President George W Bush for the specific purpose of distracting everybody from NESARA.

NESARA mushroomed into a dominant theme of an entire international ecosystem of New Age luminaries and extraterrestrial contactees, including Sheldon Nidle, Jennifer Lee and Sherry Shriner, who all published about it regularly and still do.

On his deathbed in 2005, Harvey Bernard heard about Goodwin’s claims about NESARA and denied NESARA had been enacted into law, condemning Goodwin’s allegations as a disinformation campaign. Goodwin, in turn, dismissed Bernard’s NESARA Institute as a disinformation front for the Bush family (!)

But here’s where it gets REALLY crazy: The title of Bernard’s NESARA proposal is Draining the Swamp: Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform.

One of Trump’s top three slogans is associated with all of the craziness above – and we are living it now!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Godfather of the Rothschild banking cartel, Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”

In a recent Bloomberg article, ‘The Fed’s Cure Risks Being Worse than the Disease’, Jim Bianco explains what is now happening with the Federal Reserve Bank in their response to the coronavirus. He writes, “This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization, so meet your new Fed Chairman, Donald J Trump.”

Did President Trump just nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank? On June 4th, 1963, President John F Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110, which many believe was an effort to transfer power from the Federal Reserve Bank to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve notes with silver certificates, thereby taking the power away from the international banking cartels. Less than six months later, President Kennedy was assassinated and his move against the Fed was reversed.

During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln printed $400 million worth of Greenbacks, a debt-free, interest-free money, independent of international bank control. In response, the London Times wrote that, “If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic should become indurated down to a fixture then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

The bankers were not willing to lose power and the Bank of England went on to fund the Confederacy. Weeks prior to Lincoln’s assassination, assassin John Wilkes Booth spent time in Montreal, known as the “Confederate capital of Canada” and was found after the assassination with a banknote from Ontario Bank. Booth’s personal manager, was banker, Joseph Simonds. After Lincoln was killed, power was restored to the international banking cartel.

The National Economic Security and Recovery Act, known as NESARA was a set of proposed economic reforms suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Bernard. Bernard created the NESARA proposal during the late 1980s. He sent copies to members of Congress but was ignored. In 2001, he established the NESARA Institute and published the second edition of his book in 2005, re-titling it, ‘Draining the Swamp: The NESARA Story Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform’.

The policies included replacing the Income Tax with a National Sales Tax, abolishing compound interest on unsecured loans and returning to a “bimetallic currency” (gold and silver), which he claimed would result in zero percent inflation and a more stable economy.

There is a big buzz on the Internet that President Trump is implementing this plan. There is also speculation that this is part of a huge global economic reset, GESARA to be decided at the international World Court of The Hague. If this is true, certainly this decision has been decided years ago and we are just now feeling the effects.

The coronavirus scare is beginning to look like a false alarm but the reaction is looking just like a false flag and it seems that when we come out the other end of this the world will be different.
