    Why are we having this high pressure when there is no downforcing that supports it? What happened to the colder then average nights this spring we had where did that pattern go?

    This feels artificial why would they spray just off of the ocean? Are they too afraid to show it inland anymore?

  2. Dieversity says:

    How come night skies are VERY murky yet daytime there is no spraying for weeks yet we have had a high pressure stuck over or near us which each time the models kept predicting a break down it failed?

  3. RUDY A PADILLA says:

    why cant we just spray water into the atmosphere?

  4. Dennie says:

    I just got my copy of Plague of Corruption, a best-selling book by Dr. Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., who was a superstar ground-breaking microbiologist and virologist until she was fired, threatened, surveilled, stolen from, had her house broken into, all her notes stolen out of her office, then "planted" in an obscure closet in her house and was even put in jail for five days with NO charges, and her husband threatened, all for her consistently telling the truth, not lying about research and not caving in! 

    Mikovits very clearly has a massive Earth-sized whale by the tail with her research about the presence of animal retroviruses that have been contaminating vaccines for decades, mixing with human immune functioning when introduced into the body via vaccines grown in animal cell cultures and causing loads of diseases, especially cancer.  The retroviruses she expected to find were present in tumors of cancer and other-diseased patients who'd been vaccinated much earlier in their lives.  This is The Main Reason why vaccines are not safe.  The biologics (cow, dog, monkey and bird cell cultures lines) in which viruses are grown for making vaccines are all contaminated.  In addition, cross-contamination has been occurring as viruses like XMRV can become aerosolized in labs.  Many researchers who've worked with it test positive for XMRV, a retrovirus that Mikovits has described as being more dangerous to the immune system than HIV. 

    Most chilling of all is her description of contamination breaches in locations where experimental lab monkeys have been kept for research on the deadly hemorrhagic virus, Ebola, a number of them in the U.S.  I would not be surprised to see a massive outbreak of Ebola hit south Asia, then Asia, then everywhere else, in the next 5-10 years… and yes, Fauci is dirty.  Very dirty….

    Weekly, Dane has provided the more than grim statistics of "life as we knew it" or thought we knew it… and the now.

    This article refers to 1,600 retail stores under one umbrella- to close due to Covid. Most people dont have a clue the trickle down of this- starting with VERY large commercial buildings standing empty everywhere. So not only does this effect thousands of employees but all else that goes into running a business of this size- hopefully the public will start to open their eyes and take a peak to what lies ahead and to the fact that , "we are through the guard rail" (Quote from Dane)

  6. Donna-Arizona says:

    Intelligent, rational people will recognize that vaccinating the ENTIRE  POPULATION – against a virus that more than 99% of people are already surviving without a vaccine – is ridiculous.

    Now take the same intelligent, rational people whose source of information comes from main stream media, scaring the shit out of them, will be the first in line for a largely untested experimental vaccine.

  7. Donna-Arizona says:

    The PCR test was invented in the 80s by Dr Kary Mullis who said "the tests can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but not viruses themselves." It can't identify viruses? Then how do we know if all these people have the same disease? With all these people who have been PCR tested for COVID, there is still no conclusive diagnostic evidence that they have any coronavirus at all, let alone the same virus. PCR is not a test that isolates, identifies, or even detects any particular virus.

  8. Sandy Patrus says:

    Several weeks ago I asked all of you what you thought about me traveling to Pgh for a close friend's wedding and the majority of you said to go and have a good time.  Well, since then NM made it mandatory to quarantine for 2 weeks when I get back after traveling by air out of state.  When I return from this trip I was suppose to watch my granddaughter because they are doing online classes and not going back to school.  My daughter starts back to work at the end of August and my going to Pgh is going to be a problem for her.  Also, because she has succumbed to the fear like everyone else, she is worried I may pick up the virus.  Also, my son and husband are giving me a hard time about going too.  They think all the words out of my mouth are conspiracy theories when I try to present facts to them.  It has gotten to where I will be ostracized by my family if I go!  My husband wants to keep peace in the family since we only have each other right now, and asked me not to go.  I am so unhappy and angry over the fact they are making me choose between them and the wedding!  My son has gone so far as to say he thinks I am being very careless and said he probably wouldn't come around much if I go.  I have been in tears over this and don't know what to do!  If I don't go I am giving in to the fear, which is against all I believe, and if I do go things will never be the same again between my kids and husband.  This is what this plandemic is doing to us, dividing families!

    • Marilyn Avila says:

      I feel for you Sandy.  I live in So. California and go up to Seattle at least 3 times a year to see my young grandchildren.   I haven't been since Thanksgiving and have already missed 2 birthdays and now missing a third.  I bought tickets thinking things would be better by August but decided on my own to cancel,  even though it killed me to do it.   We're both in our seventies, husband has COPD,  and son is 2 years in remission after treatment for cancer in his lung.  Even though I am healthy and felt I probably would be ok,  it just wasn't worth it to risk getting the virus on the plane or in airports, and possibly being stuck in a strange hospital (or dying in one),  or worse, infecting my family on either end of the trip.  I'm not sure you will see this message,  but if you end up not going,  feel better about your decision to stay safe.   This is a terrible situation for so many people.   Of course the bigger picture is the decimation of our once beautiful planet,  but being kept away from family or friends is definitely making things much worse.   Good luck to you and be glad you are near your grandchild.  I wish I was!!

    36 Steps Medical Authorities Have Taken To Guarantee Maximum Death & Disruption from Coronavirus / from Paul Craig Roberts
    Update:  a reader has brought the number to 39 with these three additions:
    Fauci and NIH helped fund China’s research into the dangerous and banned gain of function that has made coronavirus so contagious.
    Bill Gates and Johns Hopkins University did a test run of a pandemic at the end of last year.
    Governments in the US, Canada, and Western Europe delayed stopping flights from countries with coronavirus outbreaks until enough infected people had entered the country  to ensure widespread infection and make contract tracing impossible.
     

    Paul Craig Roberts
    This is a very important article:  https://anthraxvaccine.blogspot.com/2020/06/how-false-hydroxychloroquine-narrative.html

    It is written by a medical doctor and consists of a list of steps that have been taken by medical authorities in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe, and apparently also Russia to prevent doctors from using inexpensive hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) together with azithromycin and zinc to treat coronavirus.  
    HCQ with azithromycin and zinc is the only known effective treatment (other than perhaps large intraveneous doses of Vitimin C) of coronavirus. Dr. Didier Raoult has proven its effectiveness by using the treatment on more than 4,000 patients.  A number of American doctors have reported similar success.
    As regular readers of this website know, I have covered some of the deceptive practices used by CDC, NIH, WHO, and medical journals to falsely portray HCQ as a dangerous drug that kills.  Dr. Meryl Nass’ list of Big Pharma’s intentional falsifications for the sole purpose of preventing cost effective treatment of coronavirus is a long list.  It shows us the extent to which the medical profession is corrupted by money.  The reason HCQ has been blocked is to protect the market for Gilead’s Remdesivir, an extremely expensive and ineffective treatment, and to keep the option open for marketing a highly profitable vaccine that is unlikely to be effective.

    To be clear, large numbers of people are suffering with serious illness and many are dying, the economy has been disrupted and people’s financial health has been impaired, all for the sake of profit for Big Pharma.

    Dr. Nass points out that the National Institute of Health’s committee that sets guidelines for coronavirus treatment has 16 members with financial entanglements with Gilead, including two of the three co-chairmen of the committee.  Dr. Nass asks:  “Are you surprised that their guidelines recommend specifically against the use of hydroxychloroquine and in favor of Remdesivir, and that they deem this (Remdesivir) the new ‘standard of care’”?

    Now ask yourself, when the entirety of the Western media and the medical establishment purposely cause illness and death so that money can be made, why do you believe what media and authorities tell you about George Floyd’s death and everything else?

    On what big issue have we ever been told the truth by media and authorities? USS Liberty?  9/11?  Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction?  Assad’s use of chemical weapons?  Iranian nukes?  Russian bounties to the Taliban to kill US soldiers? Russiagate?  Impeachgate? 

    Many commentators have been suspicious of the pandemic seeing that it serves control and profit.  Many are convinced that the pandemic was unleashed on the world for power and money.  My own view has been that the dangerous virus probably escaped from a lab and that Big Pharma, Bill Gates, and the police state have been quick to use it for their agendas.  

    Those who see the pandemic as intentional can point to such an event’s prediction in the movie V for Vendetta.  It is a story of the British unleashing a plague on the population in order to seize tryannical control over the population.  

    From Dr. Nass’ list we can see the measures implemented by the authorities to maximize the success of coronavirus in causing sickness, death, and economic disruption.  Clearly, our leaders are serving other purposes than our welfare.

    Dane, you are my hero. May truth prevail. Your website comes up but your weekly newscast and the trailer to "Dimming" will not load. 

  11. Roy says:

    It was good to see someone use the words 'a different hypothesis' in a recent post, or an alternate theory. We are being abused & controlled by the usage  of the phrase 'conspiracy theory'. Conspiracy is a noun being used as an adjective I think  indicating that the theory, a noun,  is automatically an unlawful harmful secret suspicious plan. Is this even proper grammar? I dislike it greatly because of it's use to us. Any language expert out there to comment on this alternate account?

  12. Mark Montblant says:

    Hello Dane, Thank you for this trailer. Now I can sent this to a lot of "conservative non believers" who will listen because the people in the trailers are their kin.

    Here in the South West the heat has a weird quality, not so much in degrees, but in intensity, to the point where, as I have MS, my nervous system cannot bear it. It is almost electrical in nature.

    Always suspected a connection between COVID and the spraying.  Where did the headline about the 35 fishermen come from?

  14. Gary Morrow says:

    Nobody does crazy conspiracy theories better than the U.S. Government. They have actually convinced most of the nation that 19 Muslims armed with box cutters were able to knock down three skyscrapers with two planes in NYC and crash another plane into the most heavily defended building on Earth, more than a half an hour after President Bush was told that a second plane had hit the South Tower. The pilot that crashed a plane into the Pentagon was able to find the building from hundreds of miles away simply by looking the window. Then when he got to Washington D.C.he performed a 270 degree descending corkscrew turn bringing the plane exactly level with the ground and crashed into the building at more than 500 mph. He was able to perform these amazing feats because he had trained on a single engine Cessna 172. Or so the Government says. Also, – 911 News Coverage: How 36 Reporters Brought Us The Twin Towers Explosive Demolition On 9/11. This exhaustive review of 70 hours of 9/11 news coverage reveals that the hypothesis of explosions bringing down the Twin Towers was not only prevalent among reporters covering the events in NYC on 9/11 but was in fact the dominant hypothesis. Furthermore the 21 instances of eyewitness reporting all of which contain spontaneous descriptions of the phenomena the reporters witnessed STRONGLY CONFIRM THE OVERWHELMING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT EXPLOSIVES WERE USED TO DESTROY THE TWIN TOWERS.

      Yes Sir; jet fuel burns at 1600 degrees fahrenheit & it takes over 2300 degrees fahrenheit to burn steel, & there was a lot of it, odd how the cement just pulverized into powder. Most people say " well didn't you see the jets fly into towers". "911 the Great Illusion" dvd explains some things. The Pentagon got hit but all the film from surrounding areas businesses, gas stations etc. got confiscated very quick by the gestapo. No fuselage, suit cases, seats, debris, people lying on ground? Way to much Propaganda…they say believe it or else. Bush said said you're with us or against us…Look at where we're at after Mission Accomplished in attacking Iraq, how many years now, not to mention Afghanistan. We're all supposed to be entitled to our opinion and seek the Truth. Way to many unsettled questions with families losing their loved ones for starters in those buildings as a catalyst. Tower 7 I believe came down like a demolition & it didn't even get hit we know?! These lowlifes like to use the Conspiracy this and that, prove it they say, all the while running us into the ground exhausting one's energy. It's just like Global Warming term used so much, now it's called Climate Change right? Brainwashing, say it, repeat it, repeat & repeat it and they'll believe it with their puppets in the media spewing out their lies, not true Journalism! Whores of the System I was once told in that Terminology by a friend as he defined it.

      For those interested in topics so important to our country and what group is 'behind' all of this chaos, I heartily recommend you research all of Benjamin Freedman's speeches and books.  He is a man of impeachable character who was 'in' on the beginning of this orchestrated mess under which we currently find ourselves.  He sacrificed his entire fortune to enable his efforts to identify the root cause of America's downfall.   Thank all who are so determined to lift that 'boot' off of our face, despite the current tide to keep it there.

    Dane, At some point suggest what would happen if illegal aerial spraying, geoengineering   projects were to be halted.

    Yet night sky is almost star-less.   Have they found another way to spray?

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello, Louis, when the climate engineers manipulate a high pressure dome over a region, there is generally heavy aerosol operations taking place around the perimiter of the high pressure dome. In the case of California, there is almost constant spraying taking place to the west, over the Pacific. The aerosols drift in, the skies are often silvery white (which blots out the night sky view).

    Yesterday as I was leaving the supermarket, I was walking back to my truck. I was carrying my umbrella. This was to keep that burning Sun off my skin. I have already had skin cancer once and do not wish to go through that again. A man stopped me in the parking lot and told me that I was doing the right thing. I took advantage of the opportunity to tell him about the former NASA contract engineer with whom geowatch is working, and his findings of uvc radiation hitting the earth's surface in the last few years. I told him about the website and showed him some of the trees around the parking lot that already have scorched dead branches at their tops. I have seen such trees all over the state of North Carolina. Like people, each tree has a different level of susceptibility and sensitivity to ultraviolet C radiation. Some trees are harder than others. But it is happening. One beautiful oak tree started dying about 2 years ago. This is a tree I pass every day on the way to work. As of last year it only had a few green branchas left, and now it is completely dead.

    • BaneB says:

      Absolutely UVC is pouring down upon us and sterilizing the earth.  There is a network of private individuals who monitor the UV radiation levels and report their findings.  I was shocked a few weeks ago when checking out a part of my property.  A huge swath of grassland of the finest natural grass is utterly barren.  Virtually zero grass.  A desert.  Sterilized!  Always had thick grass there.  The soil has no cover over it.  I agree about the intensity of the sunlight upon the skin.  It’s really uncomfortable, burns, and is of prickly sensation.  I have taken to completing my outside chores around here by 11a.m. because of the intensity of the sun.  Already, due to the bizarre lack of rain last winter, the vegetation is displaying a rapid drying out. I am praying for an early fall and winter.

    75 Years After Trinity: The Human Cost of Nuclear Tests The Diplomat
    “We’re actually appalled by the fact that they would even reconsider live testing.”
    Unbelievable Waste
    Ten thousand kilometers (approximately 6,000 miles) west of the Central Pacific, the legacy of Soviet nuclear testing casts a dark shadow over Central Asia. Eastern Kazakhstan, which borders both Russia and China, is around 1,000 kilometers (around 600 miles) north of Kashmir, the disputed Himalayan region where tensions between three nuclear powers — India, Pakistan, and China — have recently turned deadly.
    The people living around the area formerly called Semipalatinsk (today it’s called Semey) are still paying a heavy price for the more than 450 Soviet nuclear tests conducted at the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site (known as the Polygon) between 1949 and 1989.
    Those tests not only devastated people’s health, well-being, and the environment, they were an affront to Kazakh people for whom the region is sacred and a center for nomadic culture, home to the great poets Shakarim, Mukhtar Auezov, and Abai Kunanbayev, the father of Kazakh literature.
    The steppe also supported agricultural abundance and provided critical habitat for Arkhar sheep, Saiga antelope, and the eagles that circled over patches of pine forest and willow and aspen-lined rivers that flowed across the steppe.

    Bad News For Moderna: More Evidence Shows COVID-19 Antibodies Disappear Not Long After Infection | Zero Hedge
    Following trial results released yesterday showing Moderna's vaccine candidate might not be safe for human consumption – apparently, the candidate caused "adverse" reactions in roughly 50% of patients who participated in a recent study – the dozens of companies, universities and governments working on COVID-19 vaccine candidates just received another piece of disheartening news: A growing body of evidence gleaned from research into the virus suggests that antibodies may not offer protection for more than 2-3 months, for many people.
    Now, a study produced by researchers at King’s College London is showing recovered patients antibodies declined significantly within months of infection, raising the critical question of whether a vaccine could ever provide lasting protection. Moderna's vaccine candidate has shown the capacity to produce antibodies in test subjects, but it's still unclear exactly how much protection this might provide.
    University of Nottingham Emeritus Professor in Immunology Herb Sewell, who consulted on the study, said it appeared to show that antibodies to the virus disappeared more quickly than antibodies for MERS and other coronaviruses. Viruses like SARS elicited an immune response that lasted at least a couple of years.
    This suggests that the eventual COVID-19 vaccine might need to be administered every year to offer a reliable level of protection.
    "If the vaccine response drops off like the natural response does, it does mean we’d have to give repeat ones," he said.
    But that's not set in stone – at least, not yet. As the FT points out, seeing some degree in decline of efficacy is typically expected. That doesn't mean the body won't be able to reproduce those same antibodies even more quickly the next time it is infected.
    Researchers also apparently found evidence showing a link between the intensity of symptoms and the durability of antibodies. The lighter the symptoms, the lower the level of apparent immunity.

    What Does Disappearing Immunity To Covid-19 Mean For A Vaccine? / Forbes
    Vaccines don’t act as shields, protecting you from a disease. Instead they act more as alarms. Just like a fire alarm won’t put out the fire, a vaccine won’t prevent you from infection. They’re just a means to alert your immune system early on that a danger exists. In the end, it’s your immune system—including those antibodies—that does all the work.
    Several recent studies have found that antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 decline in strength and number in the weeks and months following infection. One study describes a decline in even neutralizing antibodies, which are thought to be protective against reinfection and disease. While this decline is not without precedent and is in fact typical of human coronavirus infections, the question is what it portends for the pandemic and for the success of Covid-19 vaccines. …
    A vanishing act
    As I mentioned previously, it has already been confirmed that immunity to SARS-CoV-2 fades quickly after infection. When viral infection occurs, a type of antibody called IgM appears within one to two weeks. IgM antibodies mobilize against the virus, then begin to disappear in the weeks and months following infection. Two to three weeks after an infection has cleared, IgG antibodies appear.
    It is the case for many viruses, such as those that cause most childhood diseases, that reasonably high levels of IgG antibodies persist for many years. It is not the case for SARS-CoV-2. Studies show that the IgG antibodies we produce while recovering from Covid-19 decline rapidly. Not only that, but in blood samples from some convalescent Covid-19 patients, IgG antibodies and even IgM antibodies are altogether absent. (That these patients were, in fact, infected was confirmed by successive PCR tests.)
    How does SARS-CoV-2 engineer this disappearing trick, and what implications would the mechanism have for the development of vaccines? One possibility is that the coronavirus proteins have evolved to become weak immunostimulants. If this is so, it will be a problem for Covid-19 vaccine candidates that use natural variants of the virus proteins as antigens. To be successful, their makers will have to engineer proteins that differ from those in the virus itself—not an impossible task, but a difficult one that would take time. We won’t know the answer until we learn how well the vaccines protect against infection, and how long protection lasts.
    Manipulating immune memory
    Another possibility is that coronaviruses have developed the means to manipulate the human immune response to its own advance. Coronaviruses have carved out an interesting ecological niche for themselves. When a coronavirus enters the body, it down-modulates the immune system, reducing our immune response. In doing so, the virus gains a toehold allowing it to spread. Even if the immune system is able to eventually clear the virus, the damage has been done. By down-modulating our initial immune reaction, the coronavirus has ensured that our long-term response to the virus isn’t as powerful as it ought to be. Immunity fades and our bodies essentially forget that we were ever infected.
    In another, the virus could actively compromise the memory response upon re-infection. Remember that vaccines, once injected, don’t shield the body from infection. Instead, they equip the immune system with a sophisticated alarm system—one that will trigger a vigorous, rapid immune response whenever the invading virus sets off the alarm. Immune memory cells, trained by the vaccine to mobilize at the sound of the alarm, allow the body to mount a full-blown immune response in days rather than weeks. If SARS-CoV-2 does have the ability to impede immune memory, that means it can effectively disconnect the alarm. A virus with the potential to compromise the memory response would pose a difficult vaccine challenge indeed.
    There are hints that coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 included, may employ several immune evasion techniques. We already know that SARS-CoV-2 does produce one or more proteins that actively interfere with immune function. The orf-3b gene product specifically interferes with precisely those signals impotent for initiating the production of anti-viral antibodies and T-cells. The orf3b protein down-regulates the production of interferon-gamma and IL-2, both necessary for initiating the production of anti-viral antibodies and T-cells.
    The ability of orf3b to interfere with immune activation is very likely the tip of a very large iceberg when it comes to altering the immune response. At least 9 SARS virus proteins and 6 MERS virus proteins are known to interfere with the host immune response. It is very likely that SARS-CoV-2 also carries a full complement of similar genes that collectively may help explain three usual features of infection, antibody-negative convalescents, rapidly fading antibody levels, and re-infection.
    Immune reactions to SARS-CoV-2 infection and disease are complex, and we knew from the beginning that developing a vaccine that outwits the virus wouldn’t be easy.  …

    Stockman: The Clown Cars Are Fully Loaded And Dr. Fauci's Is Leading The Parade | Zero Hedge
    Authored by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,
    When it comes to the topic of clown cars, we’d say Dr. Fauci gets a limo version all to himself…
    Yesterday he uttered the following incoherent babble, saying the recent surge in new cases is because the Virus Patrol didn’t go far enough in throwing 50 million Americans out of work:
    'We did not shut down entirely,' Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said. 'We need to draw back a few yards and say, "OK, we can’t stay shut down forever." …You’ve got to shut down but then you’ve got to gradually open.'
    Got that?
    What does this pretentious old windbag think – that the blooming, buzzing mass of a $21 trillion economy can be calibrated up and down by the week via some magical dimmer switch?
    …  as we now surely understand, and you would think Fauci would, too, the Covid (light blue bars) is primarily a harvester of elderly persons already struggling with life-threatening respiratory, heart, vascular, renal and diabetic illnesses.
    Accordingly, among the 191 million Americans under the age of 45 years, there have been only 1.5 WITH-Covid deaths per 100,000, while for the elderly, the opposite is true. Nearly 70,000 or more than 60 percent of all WITH-Covid death have been among the 75 years and older population, resulting in mortality rates as follows:
        •    85 years & Over: 581 per 100,000 persons;
        •    75-84 years: 200 per 100,000 persons;
    Now, you don’t need to take a single class in epidemiology to understand a core truth: That is, when nearly 60 percent of the population under 45 years accounts for only 2.5 percent of the reported WITH-Covid deaths and has a rounding error mortality rate, while the 6.5 percent of the population 75 years and older accounts for 60 percent of the deaths—you don’t fight the disease with a one-size-fits all strategy of generic lockdowns, quarantines, and social regimentation.
    And surely you don’t shutdown the schools, gyms, bars, restaurants, movies, ball games, concerts, beaches, theme parks etc. because the vulnerable elderly don’t patronize these venues in appreciable numbers anyway, and could easily be warned to stay strictly away.
    The key point, however, is that this whole unspeakable Lockdown Folly does not remotely stem from the “science”, as the MSM supporters of Fauci claim.
    It’s just a hair-brained experiment in social control that happened because the Donald was too weak, ill-informed, distracted, and innumerate to send Fauci and his camarilla of doctors and vaccine-peddlers packing when the mid-March guidelines were first issued by the CDC.
    Yes, the Donald’s political enemies in the ranks of big city mayors and Blue State governors have feasted upon the chum Fauci & Co have persistently tossed into the fetid waters of national politics, but that doesn’t let Trump off the hook.
    If the truth be told, this is the Trump Lockdown Folly and ranks among the greatest blunders ever committed by a US President. That’s because even at this late date nearly four months into the resulting economic disaster:
        •    there is no evidence that asymptomatic persons are transmitters of the virus,
        •    there is powerful statistical evidence that 95 percent of the population can cope with the disease and recover if they do become infected.

    Yet, the twin pillars of Fauci’s hare-brained social regimentation scheme assumes they very opposite: Namely, that healthy Americans must be put under house arrest because they are silent spreaders and killers of their fellow citizens; and that the disease is so virulent that its #1 enemy—the powerful immune system of every healthy American—cannot be trusted to do its job if the virus is permitted to follow its natural course of contagion and eventual herd immunity.
    As to the silent spreaders trope, here is how the very head of WHO’s COVID-19 Task Force, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, recently explained that transmission of the virus from asymptomatic patients appears to be very rare:
    It still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual.”
    For crying out loud. That knocks the very rationale for stay-at-home orders to hundreds of millions of healthy citizens into a cocked hat.
    In a constitutional democracy, where the liberties and properties of citizens are protected by law, you need overwhelming proof of an existential threat to society before ordering mass house arrests. But in this instance, the head of the WHO task force–the agency that fomented the whole coronavirus hysteria in the first place–has said quite unequivocally: No cigar!
    In a word, Dr. Fauci is peddling dangerous humbug under the banner of pseudo-science, and should have been shut-up and forced into retirement long ago. The unfortunate truth, however, is that the Donald is too chicken to use the Fake “your fired” tool that made him a short-lived TV star, if not a successful businessman.
    His defenders, of course, mumble that his hands are tied because Fauci is a member of the legally protected Senior Executive Service (SES). That’s Jimmy Carter’s gift to insubordinate bureaucracy, which your editor happily voted against back in the day—but the excuse is poppycock.
    Under Federal law, Fauci can be fired if he is found to have engaged in—
    misconduct, neglect of duty, malfeasance, or failure to accept a direct reassignment or to accompany a position in a transfer of function”, is or to be “less than successful [in his] executive performance.
    If not “malfeasance”, what would you call the absolute savaging of the livelihoods and life’s work of tens of millions of American workers and small businessmen for no good reason of state, which have resulted from Fauci’s idiotic pronouncements and guidelines?
    The thing is, after four months Fauci’s blatherings and instructions to state and local authorities have fomented an outright public Hysteria of biblical proportions.
    … The Virus Patrol has switched from the death count to the “case” count because the latter is not at the 3,000 per day predicted by the CDC in early May, and ballyhooed by the NYT and MSM as the leading edge of a horrid "second wave” coming down the pike.
    In fact, during July to date (thru the 14th), the daily WITH-Covid death count has averaged 613, or only one-fifth of the projected June-July-August surge; and even that level is suspect, given the growing evidence that many local jurisdictions are doing retrospective death audits to pad their case counts.
    In any event, the readily available state-by-state data tells you all you need to know. This so-called Sun Belt wave of cases is, indeed, the equivalent of the normal flu.
    In the case of Florida, for instance, during the first 14 days of July, there have been 139,195 new cases reported, but only 4,322 new hospitalizations. So that means only 3.1 percent of this ballyhooed surge of cases was sick enough to even require hospitalization.
    Needless to say, that’s not a crisis; it’s just one more part of the indictment against Fauci and his gang of malpracticing doctors. They have put the anti-Trump press into a rabid feeding frenzy, and that coverage, in turn, has caused the American public to head back into their Covid holes.
    As it happened, three of the nation’s largest banks reported their totally confected earnings for Q2 this AM, but the one thing that stood out as meaningful was a collective $28 billion provision for future loan losses. That is, they see the massive wave of defaults set in motion by Fauci’s misbegotten Lockdown Nation strategy, and are getting prepared for the worst.
    Meanwhile, the Fed’s lunatic $3 trillion injection of liquidity into the canyons of Wall Street since the Lockdown Nation incepted in mid-March continues to do its mischief, fueling a stock market bubble that gets more ludicrous (and dangerous) by the day.
