As the narrative shifts - Covid

| No Comments

As the truth comes out, it is fun to watch the narrative shift - specifically the 800,000 "deaths from covid" number that the CDC likes to use. Jeff Childers is a Florida lawyer and writes a column every weekday at Coffee&Covid.  His entry for today was fun to read - here is just an excerpt:

It only took 21 months. But the CDC has FINALLY admitted the single most significant fact of the pandemic. Yesterday, often terrified CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, blinking like a surprised owl on methamphetamines, told Good Morning America that “the overwhelming number of deaths — over 75% — occurred in people who had at least four co-morbidities. So really these are people who were unwell to begin with.”

When I heard this, my mouth fell open in dumbfound shock, and I felt just like how Cortez and his men must have felt, staring at the Pacific Ocean for the first time, in a wild surmise, silent upon a peak in Darien.

When I predicted yesterday that — if I was right — the Administration would move fast, I didn’t quite imagine THIS fast. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

I have SO many thoughts. Back in the early summer of 2020, a group of us used public records requests to get ahold of the medical examiners’ notes for the first 40 or so reported Covid deaths in Florida. Shortly after that, the state changed the way they organized the death paperwork so that it became impenetrable to public records. So we never got any more.

But the first 40! I spent WEEKS, maybe months, throughout the summer, going case by case, explaining in C&C just how sick almost every single Covid fatality was — how sick they were BEFORE they got Covid. My favorite example was the roofer who, according to the ME’s notes, was struck by lightning, fell three stories, crushed his vertebrae, cracked his skull, and was taken to the hospital where he died in a coma, never having woken up. But FOR SOME REASON the hospital stopped trying to save his life just long enough to swab him for Covid, thank goodness, and he was included in the first 40 reported Covid deaths in Florida.

But while there were a few — a very few — healthy deaths in the mix, the most common profile was a very elderly person with THREE or more of: chronic heart disease, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure/hypertension, diabetes, and physical injuries from recent falls. I wrote about this a LOT during Summer 2020.

I had written about three of those Florida deaths back in August of 2020: Those Florida COVID deaths

The CDC did let the comorbidity issue slip quite a few months ago.
Wrote about that in November of 2020: My governor is an idiot

I do hope that Fauci and Walensky get to spend some time in jail. Not holding my breath though...
