COVID-19 End Game

always eyes watching you and voices instructing you

The coronovirus is undoubtedly a nasty little bugger, in all likelihood I’ve had it and I was poorly for a couple of weeks.  But, the truth of it is that COVID-19 is a fairly mild pathogen, which isn’t even particularly infectious, (you can kill the coronavirus with ordinary soap and water).  In comparison to the H1N1 Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918 /1919, the coronavirus doesn’t even qualify as a mild head cold going around a school classroom.

Just in case you are not a student of history, the Spanish Flu first infected young very fit men, (military personnel), and not the old, frail, and infirm.  And, unlike the paltry numbers infected by the coronavirus, the Spanish Flu infected 500 million out of a much smaller world population.  Some 50 million died, (a mortality rate of 10%), of which there were 675,000 deaths in the USA out of a population of 103 million.  The Spanish Flu Pandemic really was a global killer.  The COVID-19 Pandemic is a political fraud.

And, the sad thing is that I believed it.  Then, I wondered why?  But, now the end game is becoming clear.

  1. There is an increasing erosion of our freedoms and civil liberties ~ coupled with ever greater control over our actions by politicians, governments, health officials, and parts of the scientific community.  This is not going to go away.
  2. As part of this drive for greater control over the populous the next likely move will be the introduction of National Identity Cards which will carry our health records and vaccination status.  Identity cards are weapons of control used by organisations like the Gestapo, Stasi, and KGB.
  3. Travel is being made increasingly difficult, particularly air travel.  There are moves afoot to make intrusive pre-flight documentation compulsory across the world.  You will need a permit to travel, just like in the now defunct USSR.
  4. Public gatherings and public demonstrations will be banned, made difficult, or just made socially unacceptable ~ unless such gatherings serve the purposes of the politicians, governments, and health officials controlling our lives.  It isn’t even acceptable to go into the office anymore.
  5. There is a general acceptance that an annual flu vaccination is a fairly good idea for certain people, such as the elderly and infirm.  It is likely that this will be made almost compulsory, and along with it everyone given the flu jab will also be given a vaccination against COVID-19.  This vaccination does not even exist as yet.  All vaccinations are generally unsafe and carry serious side-effects.
  6. History is being rewritten under the aegis of organisations such as BLM.  Rewriting history is a favored tool of totalitarian regimes.

The very sad thing is that most people don’t see any of this, and if they do see it think it’s all a good thing.

Some say that for evil to flourish good men just have to do nothing.  And that a lie will be half-way around the world before the truth has got its boots on.  All I know is that the coronavirus pandemic is a political fraud.

we should stop allowing ourselves to be fed a diet of lies, half-truths, and confidence tricks

Lockdown Again

back in solitary confinement again

My part of England is back on strict lockdown again.

It’s very depressing, exhausting, and difficult to get fresh food.  I don’t even want to chat with friends, anyhow I’ve been drinking.

I truly hope this is over soon.

Fear, Frustration, Stress, Distress

ashes to ashes, iron to rust, rust to dust

suffering, injustice, post-apocalyptic

The world has been suffering from the draconian measures taken by governments and their non-elected officials for some 6 months now ~ all of it in order to deal with a chimera.  The alleged coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t even qualify as a true epidemic because it doesn’t ‘affect many people at the same time’, and yet the powers that be have spread so much in the way of lies, damn lies, false statistics, and Project Fear bullshit propaganda that some among us are really and truly frightened.  Which is sad because this is just an ordinary bug which is killed by soap and water.

Like a good boy, like a model citizen, I self-isolated and went into lockdown when my government told me to on March 23rd this year, and you know what?  I got sick.  The reason I was ill was nothing directly to do with the coronavirus.  I got sick because I was stressed and worried, I wasn’t getting any sunshine, fresh air, and exercise, and my diet had suddenly gone from healthy to crap.  When you have nothing to do all day but watch TV and worry you tend to over-indulge in comfort-eating, junk food, booze, (and if applicable to you cigarettes and drugs).  When you can’t get to the store you also lose all the fresh fruit and vegetables that help to keep you healthy.

Many people also lost their jobs, worried about losing their jobs, or had to think about working from home.  Nobody was allowed to see relatives, friends, or loved ones ~ up to and including people on their deathbeds.

No wonder this country and much of the world was filled with fear, frustration, stress, and distress.  No wonder that so much of the social media was filled with vitriolic, frightened, ill-informed shit.  No wonder America is going to hell in a hand-basket.

And it isn’t going to get any better any time soon.

Along with targeted lockdowns the latest ideas floated here in England are; compulsory flu vaccinations, compulsory coronavirus vaccinations, (when there is one), and the compulsory carrying of ID cards.  What’s more these ID cards would carry details of your health status.

There seem to be two kinds of country in the world today; those descending into totalitarianism, and those descending into anarchy.  And the only people to blame are governments and unelected officials whose sworn duty is to keep us safe.

Some say that COVID-19 is the biggest threat to world health since the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918.  And that we should all wear face masks all the time.  All I know is that if you give into irrational fear you may as well curl up and die.

COVID-19 Lies

lies, damned lies, and statistics

is this really what we want?

Something is  rotten in the state of Denmark ~ and in every other country in the world.  Something is not right, seriously amiss, and not only are the authorities doing nothing to prevent this dangerous state of affairs, the authorities are the cause of the terrible mess the world finds itself in right now.

A lie can travel around the world and back again while the truth is still lacing up its boots.  ~  Mark Twain

Of course I refer to the hysteria surrounding what is commonly referred to as the coronavirus pandemic, which has many people terrified, has destroyed many lives, and has indirectly killed many people by preventing them from receiving urgent medical treatment for many other life-threatening illnesses.

To begin with, on March 23rd I believed what the government told me, and like a good citizen I obeyed the lockdown rules, self-isolated, stayed at home, watched my life go down the toilet…..

Since then I have become increasingly disturbed by the propaganda pumped out by the media, politicians, health officials, et al  ~ which says that COVID-19 is the greatest threat faced by humanity since… anything really.  And it’s all lies.

I didn’t have to look hard to find the evidence proving that the whole coronavirus pandemic is a pile of bullshit.  I will give you just 2 pieces of evidence, and then let you make up your own mind.

  1. The statistics which say that millions / billions of people have tested positive for COVID-19 are wrong.  To begin with, only 0.4% of all those supposed millions tested have actually given a positive result.  Read a learned study published by Prof Carl Heneghan BM, BCH, DPLC, a practicing doctor and Professor of Evidence Based Medicine who also states that of every 18 positive results 10 will be false positives.  (About 60% of positives are false positives.)
  2. The mortality for COVID-19 statistics are based on these positive results.  To be said to have died from the coronavirus the deceased must have tested positive within the last 28 days ~ and then their death from whatever cause is attributed to COVID-19.  So a guy who was given a false positive result within the last month, and is then run down by a truck, is counted as a COVID-19 death.

I make no apologies for saying that the entire coronavirus pandemic panic is a lie.

Do your own research.  Stop believing the crap the media, politicians, health officials, et al are shovelling down your throat.  Be an intelligent, curious, concerned human being and not one of the sheep.

Air Sick

an aeroplane is not always a healthy place to be

at least you wouldn’t be breathing recycled air

Flying back from Turkey very late on Monday evening I was sitting in seat 7C, and I was unfortunate to be right across the aisle from an older women sitting in 7D, who was obviously quite poorly.  Overhearing the lady’s daughter talking to the cabin staff it seems as though the poor lady had been ill for most of her vacation.

The whole thing then became very complicated.  The fight was still sitting at the gate as our departure time came and went, as the cabin staff fussed around the poorly lady, her concerned daughter, and the grand daughter, who had ‘special needs’.

Then the captain appeared, walking down the aisle from the front office, looking slightly worried, which is unusual for a pilot.

Still we sat there, a nurse on the flight came back to help the cabin staff with the situation, and she looked worried after she took a look at the ‘patient’.

Then the captain re-appeared, clutching a bit of paper, and said that all three had to get off the ‘plane.  Tears, consternation, fussing and flapping.  A guy with a special narrow wheelchair arrived, and the unfortunate people were deplaned.

Then there was a detailed passenger count, and a check of all the luggage on the plane, in the hold and in the overhead lockers.

Amazingly we left the ground only 45 minutes late, and made up time on the way back to Blighty.

Why am I telling you all this?

Well whatever the poor elderly lady had, I’ve now got too.

No way I’m going very far from the bathroom for a while.

The good news is it’s not the damn coronavirus.  Just the Turkish equivalent of what we Sahibs used to call ‘Delhi Belly’.

Some say that air travel is the safest way to go.  And that you’re more likely to be hit by a meteorite than you are to be in a plane crash.  All I know is that if there is anybody sick on your flight, then you are going to get it too.

COVID-19 Testing

trying something or someone to see if the rules are being obeyed

Out on my walk this morning I saw that a mass testing operation for COVID-19 had been set up in one of the local car parks, (otherwise completely unused).  These testing stations are manned by heath workers and the army, and each one is a pretty big operation.

In the half hour or so I had this testing facility in sight, not one single car entered the parking lot so that the driver could be tested for the coronavirus.  Goes completely against the rule of build it and they will come.  This time nobody turned up at all.

I’m utterly unsurprised.  There is very little personal benefit to going through all the hassle and discomfort of the whole ‘getting tested’ process.  In fact there are a lot of individual downsides to having a coronavirus test, and I speak as a guy who has both had the virus and been tested more than once.  (After the fact.)

Being tested will not stop you contracting COVID-19, nor will it aid your recovery in any way at all.  Being tested is just likely to make you sicker because it is very likely you will to told to undergo a period of self-isolation at home, which is bad.  What is worse it that you will be carted off to hospital and stuck in a bed in a place that is rife with the damn virus.  If you are sick, (not dying), then the last thing you need is to be stuck next to a lot of other sick people.

The very best thing you can do to ameliorate any personal effects of the coronavirus is to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, which the virus hates.  The sunshine will boost your vitamin D, which the virus hates.  The fresh air will flush out your lungs, so FFS do not wear a mask.  However, stay away from other people, you don’t know if they’re a carrier, and neither will they.

When you’re out there get some exercise ~ don’t just sit in the sunshine, complete the 10,000 steps a day challenge.  Exercise will improve your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and if you’re stronger and fitter you will more easily fight off the virus if you get it.

The fresh air, sunshine, and exercise will also give you an appetite ~ believe me, it you get the damn virus you will not want to eat, and even less so if all you do all day is sit in front of the TV.  With your meals take a good and appropriate range of vitamin and mineral supplements.  Your body will need these to fight off the virus.

Trust me, for your own personal health, being tested for COVID-19 is the last thing you want.

COVID-19 Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics

some doctors say the coronavirus less dangerous than measles

When the early white settlers went anywhere, then the native populations just about died out from contracting what used to be called ‘childhood diseases’.  Chickenpox, Mumps, Rubella, Measles, Scarlet Fever ~ because they had never encountered these illnesses before and had no natural immunity.  I had all of those bugs in my childhood, (except for scarlet fever), and while I was poorly it was never bad enough to keep me away from school.  In fact, back in those dim and distant days mothers were encouraged to send infected kids to school.

There was folk knowledge that said that young kids didn’t get particularly sick from bugs that could make them very sick when they were in their mature years.  So, it was thought best for children to build up natural immunity to safeguard them when they were old enough to have children of their own.  Bog Row Junior Mixed and Infants, where I first went to school, must have been full of disease, dirt, and depravation ~ looking back it was, and yet we all grew up healthy.

So why is it that this coronavirus has caused such panic among people, politicians, health officials, doctors, et al?  Is it because COVID-19 is particularly deadly, or incredibly infections?

Well no, the coronavirus, COVID-19 is neither particularly infectious nor especially deadly.

The scientists say that the mortality rate all those who catch COVID-19 is about 0.25%.  So if you catch it you have a 1 in 400 chance of dying, but that number is meaningless because it’s the elderly, frail, diabetic, or already sick with something else who are most likely to die.  That’s the same as for any illness, including pneumonia, measles, or the common or garden flu.

Contrast that with ordinary measles, (which you will not catch because you’ve either already had it as a child, or you have had the MMR vaccine).  With measles, depending on how the doctors and statisticians measure it, you could have a 15% to 25% chance of dying, or as bad as 1 in 4.  And, if you are sick from measles the effects can last the rest of your life due to brain damage.

And yet the world is not being put into lockdown because of a measles epidemic, despite the fact that there were 413,308 confirmed cases reported to WHO in 2019.  Go figure, (as you Americans say).

Brutal as it may seem most of the supposed victims of the coronavirus were going to die anyway, because they were elderly, frail, diabetic, sick with something else, or all of those.

Something doesn’t ‘feel’ right about the responses of those in authority to the relatively mild outbreak of COVID 19.

You tell me.

Home Alone

for many, the greatest fear is abandonment

I am pretty certain that over the past couple of months there have been more people living mostly at home, alone and isolated, than ever before.  All of the reasons for people being abandoned at home and alone are related to the COVID-19 virus.  At best they could be working from home, and / or suffering lockdown, quarantine, self isolation.  Many will have lost their jobs, or in the UK have been furloughed, or been unable to work at their business because of the lockdown.  There may be more tragic reasons such as a severe illness or death.

Whatever the reason, being at home alone and isolated from physical social contact, is bad.  It will make people very sick; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  People suffering solitary confinement, (and effectively having to be at home alone is solitary confinement), become depressed and distressed.  They will suffer insomnia, either be unable to eat or eat far too much, they may drink too much, use drugs too much, and feel so exhausted they can’t or don’t want to do anything.  People in that state stop looking after themselves, don’t wash, shower, shave, clean their teeth, or get properly dressed ~ maybe they wear the same dirty stuff day after day.  They may have thoughts of hurting themselves or others, they might go out and kill someone, loot stores, set fire to cars…..

Being at home alone and isolated touches the greatest fear most people have ~ that of abandonment.  It’s a deep childhood fear, an abandoned child will quickly and certainly die, and our innermost psyche remembers that visceral fear.

There are some solutions, but none of them are easy, particularly for someone who has already suffered serious physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual decline.

What we need to do is;

  • Go outside.  And I don’t give a flying fuck what the rules and guidelines and official advice says, we all need to get outside into the fresh air and natural daylight.
  • Get some exercise.  And I don’t care how bad you feel. You’ve got to walk, do yoga, find an exercise routine on YouTube…. but do something to get your muscles and blood moving.
  • Have  strict routine.  Get up at the same reasonable time every fucking day, get clean and dressed, have breakfast, do something positive or your job maybe, have lunch at the same fucking time every day, do something positive then prepare dinner.  Go to bed at the same time every night.
  • Eat healthily, don’t drink, smoke, or indulge your other nasty habits too much.  Take good nutritional supplements.  Especially vitamins B, C and D, along with iron, magnesium, zinc, and a good fish oil.
  • Stay away from depressing news, and keep well away from social media.  Instead reach out to your family and friends.  Telephone, Skype, email, chat, write a fucking blog…..  But don’t be alone, even if you can’t be together.

Some say that lockdown and social distancing are there to keep us safe.  And that they can start living again when all these restrictions are lifted.  All I know is that life is not a dress rehearsal, this is it, make the most of it.

Take Good Care of Yourself

courage is about doing what needs to be done, when it needs doing

It turns out that COVID-19 is a very selective killer virus.  It’s racist, ageist, fattist, and discriminates against those who have cancer, diabetes, or a heart problem.  Doesn’t much like men either.  You are also far more likely to get seriously ill or die if you live in a big city and don’t get much exercise, fresh air, and sunshine.  If you want to sail through a pandemic then you should be younger, fitter, and free from underlying health conditions and addictions.

There is a little evidence that smokers are less affected by the coronavirus than people who do not and have never smoked.  If you’re a smoker don’t congratulate yourself because smoking will kill you faster and more certainly then COVID-19 ever would.  Also, smokers tend to be unfit and have a host of chronic illnesses ~ like heart diseases.  In fact, anyone with any addiction; booze, drugs of any kind, gambling, junk food, casual sex….. is far more likely to die from that addiction than from COVID-19, but this virus could well just push you over the edge.

As an example; working age men are twice as likely to die of COVID-19 than a similar woman.  And, the 70 to 79 age group are 50 times more likely to die from catching the coronavirus than the under 40s.  It’s complicated.

We do not know yet how to account for this.  Socio-economic factors may be an influence…..  There could be hidden genetic factors we do not yet understand.  ~  Professor Karol Sikora.

We can’t alter our age or ethnicity, and it’s hard to change our socio-economic status, or where we live.  But, how long is a piece of string?  There is usually a big difference between someone’s chronological age than their physical age.    Most chronic illnesses are caused by what we do and how we live; alcoholics will routinely suffer from liver and kidney diseases, heart diseases, cancers, and dementia ~ as well as having a strong chance of dying in an accident or committing suicide.  Type 2 diabetes is all about lifestyle…..

So, to have a longer, healthier, and more rewarding life we need to be brave enough to change, have some self-discipline, stop being self-destructive, and just take good care of ourselves; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

For a start, no matter what else you believe or have been told, get out there and get some fresh air and exercise.  Stop drinking, smoking, hanging around in bars, and eating junk food.

Some say you are just as old as you feel.  And that they’re not really an addict, they just smoke the occasional joint, and like a beer or two.  All I know is that most of us were on the Road to Hell but we can get off any time we like.
