For my last COVID post, I focused much on the good news, so let’s start there. After rising in July and August, COVID cases peaked in early September and have been falling since; we are down more than 42% in the last 5 weeks, the average having fallen down below 100,000 per day again. It has been a roller coaster year, but we continue in the right direction and are well off our peaks at the moment:
COVID deaths also are beginning decline, lagging a few weeks behind the decline in cases and still well off their peak in January:
On the vaccine front, the numbers are very high. More than 400 million vaccines have been dispensed in 10 months, an average of 40 million per month since we began vaccinating on December 11. The current daily average dispensed is close to 1 million per day; per Bloomberg: 987,508 doses per day as of October 8 (the vaccine mandates appear to have some impact as the daily average has increased a few hundred thousand the last couple weeks). Nearly 2/3 of all Americans (65.2% as of October 8) have received at least one vaccine. There are still some adults who have held out, but the vast majority of those who have not yet been vaccinated are kids and adolescents. Again, the American people have responded to the call to be vaccinated, yet Fauci and Biden continue to complain about the numbers.
The Coming Battle
If these numbers are still not good enough and they probably won’t be when the next COVID wave hits (more on this below), then the government will mandate the vaccines for your kids. I am already anticipating the day when my kids and yours will be blamed because COVID still hasn’t been shut down. The push is on as academia and media jump on the bandwagon: https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/why-we-need-to-make-it-harder-for-parents-to-refuse-vaccines-2016090610258
COVID vaccine mandates have already come to California and they have the Fauci seal of approval:
DR. FAUCI: Well, I agree with what Governor Newsom did in California, I mean, I’m not going to getting into the local issues only to talk about general principles that people need to realize that having a vaccine requirement for schools is not a new novel thing that is very peculiar or specific to COVID-19. We’ve been doing this for decades. My own children could not have gone to school if they had not gotten vaccinated with the measles, mumps and rubella.
We all need to be prepared for this battle (and no, we are not domestic terrorists for complaining to our school boards and elected leaders about policy). Unfortunately, our leaders will not accept responsibility for their failure to end COVID. They foolishly promised they could (see more: https://seek-the-truth.com/2021/08/08/the-fools-gold-of-zero-covid/). You and me and our kids will be blamed if it doesn’t end soon (and I think it won’t; our pediatrician along with many other doctors I speak with say COVID is now endemic).
In any case, to Dr. Fauci’s point, yes, kids have received vaccinations for years. However, as the good doctor does he always leaves out much of the story.
The MMR vaccine that Fauci quotes above was not mandated for schools until after 12 years of testing. How many years of testing have we had for COVID vaccines and kids? The polio vaccine as I have discussed before had a botched rollout in 1955. It wasn’t until 8 years later in 1963 that it was finally approved for widespread use. We don’t have the same amount of data for the COVID vaccines as we had for these other vaccines. Dr. Fauci knows all this but won’t tell you.
Also remember that those other diseases are bigger threats to our kids than COVID is. I’ve quoted the numbers before, but let me share them again. COVID-19 it is far down on the list of deadly diseases: Smallpox and Chickenpox, for instance, have a whopping 30% case fatality rate (CFR). The numbers below are from the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), the organization that Fauci works for. They have several estimates for an overall COVID CFR; all are less than 0.5%.
Adjust that CFR of 0.5 for age and you see the threat to our kids is incredibly low. If COVID was the same threat as smallpox, chicken pox, measles, mumps, and rubella, we would not be having this discussion. Again, Dr. Fauci knows all this but neglects to inform you. The chart below is from the CDC:
The updated top number is: 499 / 74,200,000 = .00000067 = .00067% (499 children COVID deaths out of 74 million kids in the U.S. as of early October). On annual basis, this is about 330 per year (.00047%), far less than the number of kids who die annually of flu and pneumonia and just slightly more than the number dying from lightning strikes. The flu and pneumonia vaccines are not mandated by our schools, despite actually being more of a threat to our kids. Why mandate COVID vaccine for kids when it is actually less of a threat?
Think about this as well: our unvaccinated kids are safer than most vaccinated adults. Why treat our kids for something that is not a significant threat to them? If I were as risk adverse as Dr. Fauci appears to be, I wouldn’t let our kids drive or leave home at all. They would be locked up until 30. https://www.newsweek.com/vaccine-children-covid-england-deaths-1627885
You could say to me that there is some minimal risk to kids, so why not go ahead and vaccinate just to be safe? Well, there is also a minimal risk to kids from getting the vaccine. Several Scandinavian countries have actually just suspended the use of the Moderna vaccine for those under the age of 30. If above 30, your risk from COVID is greater than the risk from this vaccine, but if under 30, the risk from the vaccine appears to be greater:
Sore arms, headache and fatigue were the most common side effects in young vaccine recipients, the same ones as for adults.
U.S. and European regulators cautioned, however, that both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines appear linked to a rare reaction in teenagers and young adults — chest pain and heart inflammation.
Swedish health authorities said the heart symptoms “usually go away on their own,” but they must be assessed by a doctor. The conditions are most common among young men, in connection with, for example, viral infections such as COVID-19. In 2019, approximately 300 people under the age of 30 were treated in hospital with myocarditis.
I say again, Dr. Fauci knows all of this information, but he doesn’t share any of this with the public despite being a constant fixture on TV. How can this man live with himself?
But read on. It gets worse.
At this point, I should make the disclaimer I am not an anti-vaxer. I am pro-vax and anti-vax mandate. The vaccines make sense for some people, but not for everyone. The choice should be left to you in consultation with your doctor. I mention all this again today because the coming battle will be over vaccinating our kids. Fauci and Biden and their acolytes will stop at nothing to implement their policies. Two-thirds of all Americans vaccinated is not good enough to cover up the failings of our government policies; they must have someone else to blame for the fact that they have not yet “shut down COVID” as Joe Biden claimed last year he would do.
I am not alone in this view. There are many professional athletes who are young and healthy and don’t want to risk something like myocarditis. These young men are the most physically fit and healthy among us. Why would they risk a lucrative basketball career for a drug they probably don’t need? After listening to their words, search for the attacks on them. They have strayed from the approve narrative, so they must be attacked by media in bed with Biden and Fauci.
What a Difference a Year Makes
Last October, most kids around the country were doing remote learning, fall sports were cancelled, and outdoor playgrounds were closed down. My daughter and I were even locked out of the tennis courts for a period of time even though we were often the only ones at the court. My son had to wear a mask while warming up outside for his cross-country meets, and parents were told they couldn’t meander about the course during races because it was just too dangerous to get within a hundred feet of the kids while they zoomed past you. College and professional sports were canceled altogether for the summer and then started back up in the Fall, but without fans in the stands. Our church was pretty much closed for services last March and April; we re-opened after the state was compelled to let us gather, but we held services in the parking lot outside for more than six months. Restaurants, movie theaters, and many commercial businesses were shut down because it was all too unsafe for us to gather, except, of course, in those businesses where it wasn’t unsafe to gather, places like Wal-Mart and Lowe’s who were granted special dispensation for some unknown reason. Mask mandates were also imposed virtually everywhere and in North Carolina they persisted until this past summer; masks were everyone you looked for quite a while.
The restrictions seemed so silly to me at the time. In fact, they were more than silly, they were downright harmful and I believe they caused more harm than good. Thank God, almost all of these policies have been abandoned (at least in our locale). Today, kids are back in school and sports are back to the regular schedule and all the silly COVID rules for outside events are gone. Fans are back in sports arenas, businesses are open, and the church is meeting inside the sanctuary again, with relatively few wearing masks any longer. Some businesses like mine are still having folks work from home, but that’s because we can still operate effectively in this new paradigm. Even the cruise ships are sailing again. Except for the silly mask mandate in our schools and sending kids home for two weeks for any incidental “exposure”, the restrictions that were so vitally important last year are gone (of course, kids, those least impacted by COVID, are the ones still required to wear masks). The funny thing though is that COVID is about where it was last year at this time. Do you think perhaps those restrictions weren’t needed after all?
You could say the difference today is that we have many people vaccinated, but we’ve seen over the summer that the vaccine hasn’t done well at preventing transmission, so the virus is still spreading just as easily as it did last October before anyone outside of vaccination trials had even been vaccinated. The biggest difference from last year, I believe, is that we are adjusting and taking COVID in stride now (except, of course, for the craziness over vaccine mandates). We’re so much better off being allowed to live our lives, taking the appropriate precautions which we are smart enough to figure out for ourselves. Unfortunately, Dr. Fauci hasn’t figured any of this out, so we are still hearing from him that we shouldn’t take our foot of the gas because there is still a long way to go:
The one thing that we don’t want to do is that we don’t want to become complacent and say, “OK, now we need to pull back, we don’t need any more people to get vaccinated.” We need to continue to get those individuals, now 70 million people who are eligible to be vaccinated, vaccinated. Because if you look at the history, MARGARET, of the different surges we’ve had, it’s come up, start to come down and then all of a sudden boom, come back up again. As it’s coming down, we have within our capability, we can make this happen. Namely go down to a very, very low level, with vaccination and with mitigation.
But wait a minute Dr. Fauci haven’t you noticed: we have already eased up on the restrictions because people realized that keeping us out of church, closing businesses, and locking kids out of schools and playgrounds wasn’t such a good idea after all?
Last year too there was lots of talk about what to do for the holidays. I remember the media hung on every word Dr. Fauci spoke regarding the upcoming holidays. Grandma and Grandpa would probably rather risk COVID than to not get to see the family again this year. I have been very glad that we haven’t had to listen to that pompous blowhard talk about the risk of gathering for Christmas again this year. At least, until some dummy reporter asked for his opinion about it last week:
MARGARET BRENNAN: But we can gather for Christmas, or it’s just too soon to tell.
DR. FAUCI: You know, MARGARET, it’s just too soon to tell. We’ve just got to concentrating on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time. Let’s focus like a laser on continuing to get those- those cases down. And we can do it by people getting vaccinated and also in the situation where boosters are appropriate to get people boosted because we know that they can help greatly in diminishing infection and diminishing advanced disease, the kinds of data that are now accumulating in real time.
Really? This pompous ass still expects us all to put our vacations on hold until he figures out whether or not it is okay for us to live our lives as normal? He thinks his opinion still matters and that we actually care what he thinks about our Christmas plans? Earth to Dr. Fauci. Come in, Dr. Fauci. We are already living our lives as normal. We are not seeking your advice on how to live our lives and we are not waiting for you to make up your mind about Christmas.
Oh, wait a minute, Dr. Fauci has clarified his comments because you misunderstood him when he said it is “too soon to tell” if he will allow you to visit Grandma this Christmas. He didn’t mean that he would ever try to cancel Christmas. Maybe he finally realized he strayed a bit too far from science:
Dr. Anthony Fauci said the comments he made on whether it would be safe to gather for Christmas have been “misrepresented.”
This comes after Fauci said Sunday it would be “too soon to tell” if people can gather for Christmas amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family,” he said Monday
Good. It’s good to know that you’re not the Grinch after all, and that even you, the greatest of all doctors, can walk back your mistakes from time to time.
Of course, there are others like CNN Fauci sycophant and resident medical expert Dr. Leanna Wenn who says you should be locked in your home if you are unvaccinated:
Her latest hobby horse now is that we shouldn’t be allowed to travel if unvaccinated. That will fix the Christmas problem, for sure. Tell Grandma to wait another year because we have fascists who want to control every aspect of our lives. Do you see what we are up against? You need to tell everyone that these people are out of their minds and they cannot control our lives. The media is doing the bidding of the authoritarian federal government who will try to get away with whatever mandates we allow them to impose.
How About Walking this One Back?
I have been talking about COVID treatments for the last couple of months. The fact that there are effective COVID treatments is one of our government’s best kept secret. Why that information is not broadcast widely is absolutely unconscionable. Our government is either corrupt or totally inept or both. But that secret is starting to leak out.
Florida has been in the vanguard in treating COVID patients with monoclonal antibodies, a campaign that the governor kicked off in August when delta was devastating Florida. The results, as of October 8, have been astonishing. Two months ago, Florida hit an all time peak for COVID deaths. Their death rate was the highest in the nation during that time. Today, it is the lowest in the nation, having dropped more than 96% in a month-and-a-half. In fact, deaths in Florida today are at the lowest point they have been since March 2020.
As I mentioned earlier, Florida was highly vaccinated, above the national average all year, and in the top twenty most vaccinated states, yet delta still struck the state hard. It wasn’t until the state began more aggressively treating the disease that this remarkable decline began. Friday, October 8, there were just three deaths reported in this state of more than 21 million. How low can this number go? https://www.local10.com/news/florida/2021/10/08/florida-adds-3974-new-covid-cases-3-deaths/
India is also aggressively treating COVID with the drug Ivermectin. India has fully vaccinated just 19% of their population, one-third the rate of the U.S., yet their death rate has plummeted the last few months. India’s death rate is now at 258 per day compared to 1,572 for the U.S. They are doing orders of magnitude better than us, I think because they are supplementing vaccines with COVID treatments.
Mexico is another country beginning to use Ivermectin as a treatment with good results in certain states.
Why don’t more people know about treatments? Two members of my extended family were sick with COVID the last few weeks. Both came down with pneumonia. One was admitted to the hospital; she was stabilized and sent home, but still no treatment was offered. We thought they were getting better, but then things got worse again the following week. They didn’t know treatments were available and we put them in touch with a doctor who treats patients with Ivermectin. After several weeks of little progress, they both turned around within 48 hours of being treated with Ivermectin. They are believers now. They can’t understand, just as I can’t, why we are not hearing more about these miracle drugs which actually work for COVID.
My doctor friend has treated hundreds of patients with Ivermectin and hasn’t lost a single one. Stories and testimonies like these regarding Ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been popping up more and more the last few months. I have included many testimonies in prior posts, including this one from Dr. Joseph Varon who calls Ivermectin one of the ten most important treatments we have for whatever ails you.
There are numerous other stories touting the remarkable results along with the safety of these drugs. There are also numerous other stories saying that anti-vaxers are promoting a horse-dewormer. Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo say they want to promote science but they laugh at people taking what they call a horse de-wormer, also known as Ivermectin, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize for medicine, prescribed billions of times by doctors around the world, and the drug responsible for remarkable testimonies like my two family members. CNN’s politicization of COVID is one reason why you aren’t hearing more about this miracle drug.
The other reason you’re not hearing about it is that nobody in our federal government wants to promote it. I don’t fully understand why. I think in part because they want to promote the vaccine instead, but why can’t we have treatments to augment a vaccine, especially a vaccine that is not foolproof? I think too that politics are involved and to admit now that treatments may be our way out of this pandemic would be to admit they were wrong about vaccines. So much is about avoiding the blame and denying credit to your political opponents. But I am not sure if this explains things fully either as politicians love to jump in front of parade. Joe Biden already got on the monoclonal antibodies train in his September 9 speech on COVID. Why won’t they promote or just acknowledge these treatments? Maybe they are in cahoots with Pfizer and Moderna to keep us dependent on vaccines and boosters forever. Maybe Biden touted monoclonal antibodies just so the federal government could take control of the supply and restrict it. Maybe they want to extend a crisis so they can achieve other political goals. I am not a conspiracy theorist and I don’t have any proof of these conjectures, but why else would they not tout drugs which seem to be making a huge difference?
Everyone my wife and I know who has tested positive for COVID has been wished good luck and sent home without treatment. If you get really sick, they tell you to go the ER, but even then they most likely won’t treat you with Ivermectin or monoclonal antibodies (unless you happen to live in Florida or the few other states leading the way).
Our family has a ten-day supply of Ivermectin on-hand just in case we need it in the future. We probably wouldn’t be able to get it quickly if needed at the last minute. We had to go to a mom-and-pop pharmacy because the larger outlets like CVS and Walgreens don’t want to give it to you. Why? Why are they getting between us and our doctor? https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Overcoming-Pharmacy-Barriers.pdf.
Insurance won’t pay for the treatment either. Why? Certainly this will discourage its use.
None of this is making a lot of sense.
Furthermore, it is bad enough that our public health officials won’t promote these treatments, but they are actively discouraging people from using them. Why? Doctors who prescribe treatments are having their jobs or their licenses threatened. Why? Doctors in independent practices are more likely to prescribe these treatments, but the many doctors who work for large corporations like Novant Health or the VA are not allowed to prescribe them. Why? This COVID nightmare could all end if people like Fauci or Dr. Wallensky at the CDC would begin talking about these treatments, but they don’t. They only talk about vaccines; it is the only tool in their medicinal tool box. Again, why? They are aware of what is going on. Why do they suppress this information?
Biden, Wallensky, and Fauci cannot silence doctors like Dr. Varon, nor can they shut up doctors who have allied to share information directly to folks like us. Here are a few sites where you can obtain more information from honest and reputable medical experts who are sharing more information about COVID:

Go to these sites. See what the experts, doctors with integrity, tell you. Compare what they say to what hear from our government. Biden, Fauci, and the CDC cannot deny that thousands of folks just like my family members are getting better with treatment. How many have died just because they didn’t know about treatments that might have saved their lives? Use whatever adjective you like to describe their behavior: criminal, unconscionable, corrupt, evil. I do not know how they can possibly live with themselves.
Listen to what Russell Brand, comedian turned social critic, has to say about this travesty. His ire is directed more at the media, the infamous Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo, but they are all part of team Fauci and should be held to account for this unconscionable cover up. This video is really worth the watch. It is a complete takedown and expose on how complicit our media is preventing the truth from being shared (mind you as well, Brand is Leftist, not a conservative like me, but he is smart enough to know when he is being lied too):
One more Hollywood leftist, Nicky Minaj, is speaking out as well. If only more would speak out, maybe the crack in the damn would split wide open:
Next Wave Coming?
Despite the falling COVID numbers, many are expecting COVID to return during Fall and Winter. Like the flu, COVID is likely to be with us forever. It is now endemic. I watch the numbers regularly to see the current trend, and in the last three weeks, COVID cases have dropped in three-quarters of the states. However, a few northern states have seen a slight increase in cases, an indication that as weather turns cooler, we will likely see another COVID wave before long. When this manifests or how bad it will be is impossible to know.
We have heard this is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated. This was more true a few months ago than it is today. Counter evidence to this is slowly leaking out.
On October 6, Massachusetts reported 46 vaccinated people died from COVID the past week. The only problem is that this number represents half of all deaths in the state, a state where more than 68% of all residents are vaccinated.
Somehow, the statistic that 99% of all deaths are among the unvaccinated keeps being thrown around. The number changes daily, but that stat is still the politicians go to despite the fact that it hasn’t been true for months. Senator Ron Johnson blows this narrative to shreds below as he also points the spotlight on Biden, Fauci, and Wallensky. Why are they not sharing the U.S. national numbers? Why do we have to cobble together information from various media sources or states, or for that matter look to the UK, while the CDC with all its resources is not sharing the data to back up their claims about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines? This video should give you pause. Please watch it.
Here are a couple of other posts I will share without comment. Read them and draw your own conclusions:
Folks, the truth can be found if you look for it. Please make yourself aware and share with others. We need to spread this information as widely as possible, so that we can save more lives and so that we can demand accountability from those who think they are above the law.
