Pandemic rules are only for the little people-

We're expected to suffer discomfort, economic pain, and emotional distress or else pay fines or serve jail time. Government officials, meanwhile, take offense when called out for violating the standards they created.

This has been going on forever... the elites are always above the law or have ways around the laws... communists, socialists and capitalists alike.

We've always known this: Those in power will always feel the rules they create don't apply to them.

It's true of government, of organized religion, of corporate hierarchies... Of anything that humans do frankly...

Indeed.

I'd like to able to disagree, but there's no way I can without lying to myself and everyone else. It is the unfortunate truth that power more often than not leads people to believe they are exempt from all restrictions, regardless of who is harmed in the process.

You know you are being had when our Dear Leaders refuse to follow their own orders as blatantly as the current crop of might wizards are doing now. As matters stand, they have far more to live for than us.

Maybe it BECAUSE They “Know” Something WE Don’t?

MORE “MISINFORMATION” ON COVID.

(Sorry, I posted this elsewhere here in IDW)

Last week, Johns Hopkins University published a now-deleted article explaining a study examining the effects of the novel coronavirus on United States death totals using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Genevieve Briand, the assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins, determined, in the study, that there have been 1.7 million deaths in the U.S. between March 2020 and September 2020, 12% (or roughly 200,000) of which have been coronavirus-related.

Briand posits that the only way to understand the significance of the U.S. coronavirus death rate is by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the country.

According to Briand, who compared the total deaths per age category from both before and after the onset of the global pandemic, the death rate of older people stayed the same before and after coronavirus.

“The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals,” wrote Briand.

She also noted that between 50,000 and 70,000 deaths are seen both before and after the emergence of the virus, meaning that, according to her analysis, coronavirus has had no effect on the percentage of total deaths of older people, nor has it increased the total number of deaths in the category.

Note this unintentionally hilarious sub-header that accompanies the article:

The university stands by the study but said the article was leading to the spread of ‘misinformation’

So, the very essence of this article is that the rate of death among the elderly has not changed from what it was before COVID-19 came along and supposedly started killing them, but Johns Hopkins doesn’t want you to know that seemingly critical piece of information because they claim it is ‘misinformation’.

  • Written by an assistant program director of applied economics program.
  • Not peer reviewed.
  • Published in a student newspaper

Hardly medically convincing; No wonder they took it down. Ripe for misunderstanding.

Here is some information as to the reason given for why the paper was taken down:

@TheMiddleWay
As I said elsewhere ...
I find it almost hilarious that YOU Cite the EXACT SAME Source ... written by the EXACT SAME Type of People ... with the EXACT SAME Amount of “Peer Review” (which by the way, is a joke in itself)

@Bay0Wulf
Everything is a joke, which is why the world is laughing.

@TheMiddleWay
No ... its a Joke who’s Punch Line is “FEAR” ... Unreasoning and Unbridled FEAR ...
Altogether too many people are susceptible.

I wonder what point we, as a mass, need to get to in order to collectively say f this. Where's our 100th monkey?

You know what they say, practice what you preach!

Easy to dislike these people.

Way too easy!

@Haraldson yes - it was easy for two very obvious reasons. 1: the people are happy to remain ignorant and willing to abdicate personal responsibility. 2: The most powerful and effective propaganda machine in history known as Main Stream Media are a tacit branch of the Gov't.

Reminds me of O-bomb-a telling citizens they would have to "just tighten their belts" while Michelle and kids were globe trotting and Michelle's back side was getting big enough for a "WIDE LOAD" sign to stuck on it.

I'm not familiar with all the names so had to look a few of them up, just to see if my inclination to believe them all to be Democrats was correct, and I wasn't disappointed.

Here in Oregon Governor Brownstain had the head of our Health Department literally dress up as a clown to read the newest Chinese virus death, and infection stats. SO much for taking any of this tyranny seriously....

@KCSantiago what? Link?

Compare democrat vs. republican confirmed covid infections in Congress. Interesting skew to the data...

@MichelleD

And then there was the crazy broad in Chicago making light of their style of tyranny...

@KCSantiago yeah, I saw the chiago mayor's stunt. It was in a compilation I watched. Going off this same topic, the world economic forum has a comic book basically saying they saved the world:
