Analysis Shows More COVID Deaths in 2021 than 2020 with Large Percent of 2021 Deaths Fully Vaccinated

Analysis Shows More COVID Deaths in 2021 than 2020 with Large Percent of 2021 Deaths Fully Vaccinated

The Devil is in the Details and The Trends Look Like Hell

Some may want to “Follow the Science” since a majority feel it is correct but math provides the true answers.  Math takes the data and determines the trends.  While we must learn from the past 22 months of this pandemic we also must understand the current trends so we can determine the correct path forward.

In the first 3 months of 2020 in the US, 3,603 people died from Covid-19. In April the deaths accelerated and varied between 9k and 15k per week.  Eventually, 333,199 died between April 1, 2020 and Dec 31, 2020 for a daily average of 1,216 deaths.

During the October 22nd 2020 debate Joe Biden stated, “Folks, I will take care of this. I will end this. I will make sure we have a plan”.

According to www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ there have been an additional 414,890 deaths from Covid-19 between Jan 1, 2021 and Oct 20, 2021.  That equates to a new daily average of 1,421 deaths.  The 2021 daily rate is 16.9% greater than 2020.  In the math world we would say the plan has failed.

The following is an analysis of breakthrough cases and deaths in Maryland, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.  Covid-19 breakthrough cases or deaths are in fully vaccinated persons.   Each state records their Covid-19 data differently which makes some data more readily available.  It is practically impossible to get all the data for these states on the exact same dates.

From the Maryland.gov website we are told.

Then it states later,

Less than 0.71% sounds pretty low doesn’t it?  The state of Maryland implies the vaccines are doing their job as Dr. Fauci has told us over and over again.  Yet what is the trend?

Between Sept 22, 2021, and Oct 10, 2021, Maryland had an additional 21,864 Covid-19 cases which 7,233 or 33.1% of the cases were classified as breakthrough cases.  Why doesn’t the state of Maryland give you this data versus the 0.71% number?

During this same period, Maryland lost 259 citizens to Covid-19.  Of those 259 souls, 77 or 29.7% were fully vaccinated.  Again, why does Maryland.gov water down that data?

In Massachusetts, for the four week ending period of Aug 28 through Sep 18, there were 44,773 Covid-19 cases which 37.1% were classified as breakthrough and 269 covid-19 deaths of which, 86 or 32.0% were in fully vaccinated people.  For the four week ending period of Sep 25 through Oct 16, there were 38,228 Covid-19 cases which 40.8% were classified as breakthrough and 380 Covid-19 deaths of which, 154 or 40.5% were in fully vaccinated people.

These trends detail an obvious failure of the vaccine, but news outlets state that this fully vaccinated death count of 371 is only a very small percentage of the total vaccinated.  What should be troubling to the Massachusetts public is those fully vaccinated account for an average of 39.2% of all deaths in the first two weeks of October.

In Pennsylvania, the acting Sec. of Health Alison Beam stated at a news conference at Lancaster General Hospital, “With nearly seven million Pennsylvanians fully vaccinated, the data makes it clear: the vaccines are safe and effective at preventing severe illness from Covid-19.”

However, recent analysis of cases and deaths between September 15 and Oct 4 show that in 132k cases, 26.1% of them were classified as breakthrough and 305 (26.5%) deaths out of a total of 1,153 were in fully vaccinated people.  But Sec. of Health Alison Beam makes no mention of that.

While Vermont is a small state, the fully vaccinated share of the total loss of life from Covid-19 is an even higher percentage than any of the states reviewed so far.  In September, according to the Vermont Daily Chronicle, 76% of those who died of Covid-19 were fully vaccinated.

When we look to the UK, the picture looks as bad as in Vermont except on a larger scale which should be a concern as our country’s numbers tend to lag the UK’s by a few weeks.

The following table from the UK government can be found here, on page 15.  It shows that between week 37 and week 40, there was a total of 2,805 covid-19 deaths and 2,136 or 76.1% were fully vaccinated.  These deaths happened within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test.

Recently, Dr. Robert Malone, who developed the mRNA technology, was interviewed on The Jimmy Dore Show and stated, “overuse of vaccines will drive the development of viruses that are able to evade vaccinations”.

Vaccinating those that aren’t at risk drives this development of further variants which could be killing more of our elderly.

Hopefully, we can learn from these trending hardships in the UK, that a booster shot that was designed for the initial variant discovered in the fall of 2019 can’t be the silver bullet against the variants in the 2021/2022 Covid-19 season.  When will we realize that statements like, “we can vaccinate ourselves out of a pandemic”, could actually be very dangerous to our young and killing our elderly?

Why is our 2021 daily death toll, with vaccine use, 16.9% greater than in 2020 when no vaccine was readily available?

The following Virginia data was obtained.

If a current protocol has failed, we need to discard it.  If the majority of deaths are in a specific age group we need to focus on that age group and protect their lives.  We need to stop spending time on scare tactics with other groups who are at minimal risk of death, by coercing them or mandating them into getting an experimental vaccine without knowledge of long-term side effects.

The old saying, “knowledge is power, get some” is more relevant than ever now.  Math is a beautiful thing.

2 New Studies Test Quercetin and COVID-19 Outcomes

The Epoch Times  10/22/2021

Studies suggest this antiviral, anti-blood clotting, anti-inflammatory is an effective therapeutic

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, good doctors have done what good doctors do and have given their patients safe and effective therapeutics to treat COVID-19.

While public health officials said nothing could be done, many doctors applied lessons learned from previous viral infections and helped their patients support their immune systems with safe measures that have a known history.

Common measures suggested by those doctors have included the use of vitamin D and antioxidants. As the pandemic wears on, mounting evidence points to the efficacy of many of these treatments, including quercetin.

Quercetin is a plant flavonol, a potent antioxidant found in many fruits, vegetables, seeds, and leaves. It’s safe, inexpensive, easy to obtain, and can help zinc get inside your cells, where it can work to stop viral replication.

Statistical Improvement in Clinical Outcomes

Two recent studies highlight the potential this safe plant-derived antioxidant has to treat COVID-19.

In the first study, published in the International Journal of General Medicine, 42 COVID-19 outpatients were divided into two groups. One group of 21 patients received standard medical therapy consisting of painkillers (acetaminophen) and an antibiotic for three consecutive days. The other 21 patients received standard therapy, plus the equivalent of 600 mg of quercetin per day (divided into three doses) for seven days, followed by another seven-day course of 400 mg of quercetin per day (divided into two doses).

The quercetin was used with sunflower lecithin, which has been demonstrated to increase absorption in the gut by as much as 20 times, compared to pure quercetin formulations.

The main outcomes being evaluated were virus clearance and symptoms. After one week of treatment, 16 of the 21 patients in the quercetin group tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 and 12 reported that all of their symptoms had diminished.

In the standard care group, only two patients tested negative and four reported partially improved symptoms. By the end of week two, the five remaining patients in the quercetin group tested negative. In the standard care group, 17 of the 19 remaining patients tested negative and one had died.

“These results are impressive, and hopefully additional studies will be conducted on hospitalized patients to see how quercetin might be helpful in more severe cases,” Dr. Michael Murray wrote in an Aug. 21 newsletter.

Can Quercetin Reduce Hospitalizations and Deaths?

The second study—a prospective, randomized, and controlled open-label trial—gave 152 COVID-19 outpatients a daily dose of 1,000 mg of quercetin for 30 days to evaluate its adjuvant effects in the treatment of early COVID-19 symptoms and the prevention of severe infection.

“The results revealed a reduction in frequency and length of hospitalization, in need of non-invasive oxygen therapy, in progression to intensive care units and in a number of deaths,” the study authors wrote.

“The results also confirmed the very high safety profile of quercetin and suggested possible anti-fatigue and pro-appetite properties.”

They described the branded form of quercetin being tested (Quercetin Phytosome) as “a safe agent and in combination with standard care, when used in early stage of viral infection,” saying that it could improve early symptoms and prevent severe COVID-19.

Mechanisms of Action

The authors of the first study wrote that they chose quercetin because it has antiviral, anti-blood clotting, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, all of which are important in the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In the second study, more detailed mechanisms of action are reviewed.

The authors looked at specific enzymes with the help of molecular docking studies, gaining insight into the intricate biochemistry at play.

“Quercetin is characterized by three crucial properties: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory. The combination of these actions allows quercetin to be a potential candidate to support all unhealthy conditions where oxidative stress, inflammation and immunity are involved,” they wrote.

Initially, quercetin gained attention because it’s a zinc ionophore, meaning it shuttles zinc—which has well-known antiviral effects—into your cells just like the drug hydroxychloroquine.

Some proposed that the primary reason hydroxychloroquine and quercetin worked was because of this feature. Of course, you also had to take zinc along with either of them. To effectively act as a zinc ionophore, quercetin also needs vitamin C.

Since then, other studies, including the two reviewed in this article, have shown that quercetin has other actions that make it useful against SARS-CoV-2 as well. As reported by Murray in his newsletter:

“In particular, quercetin exerts significant inhibition on the binding of specific spike proteins to ACE-2 receptors, thereby blocking the ability of the virus to infect human cells. Quercetin has also been shown to directly neutralize viral proteins that are critical in the replication of SARS-CoV-2.”

In some studies, quercetin has also been shown to inhibit the release of inflammatory cytokines, signaling molecules that summon immune cells to fight off invaders. Unfortunately, in COVID-19, too many cytokines send up a signal and the immune response turns deadly. Dampening the cytokine signal could help alleviate infection-related symptoms and suppress excessive inflammatory responses from occurring. Quercetin’s antioxidant effects may also help prevent tissue damage caused by scavenging free radicals, thereby aiding in the recovery process of viral infections.

Quercetin’s Antiviral Properties

Quercetin’s antiviral properties have been attributed to three main mechanisms of action: inhibiting the virus’ ability to infect cells; inhibiting replication of already infected cells; and reducing infected cells’ resistance to treatment with antiviral medication.

Research on mice funded by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and published in 2008 found that quercetin lowers your risk of viral illnesses such as influenza and boosts mental performance following extreme physical stress, which might otherwise undermine your immune function and render you more susceptible to infections.

Another study looked at cyclists who received a daily dose of 1,000 mg of quercetin in combination with vitamin C (which enhances plasma quercetin levels) and the B vitamin niacin (to improve absorption) for five weeks. Those in the treatment group were significantly less likely to contract a viral illness after bicycling three hours per day for three consecutive days, compared to untreated controls. While 45 percent of the placebo group eventually got sick, that number was at just 5 percent of the treatment group.

Quercetin Works Against Many Common Viruses

Before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, several studies had highlighted quercetin’s ability to prevent and treat the common cold (which is often caused by a coronavirus) and seasonal influenza. By attenuating oxidative damage, quercetin also lowers your risk of secondary bacterial infections, which is actually the primary cause of influenza-related deaths.

Importantly, quercetin increases the growth in size and number of mitochondria (the powerhouse of a cell) in skeletal muscle, which suggests part of its antiviral effects are due to enhanced mitochondrial antiviral signaling. Quercetin has also been found to work against other viruses as well.

A 1985 study found that quercetin inhibits the infectivity and replication of herpes simplex virus type 1, polio-virus type 1, parainfluenza virus type 3, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).

A 2016 animal study found that quercetin inhibited mouse dengue virus and the hepatitis virus.

Other studies have confirmed quercetin’s power to inhibit both hepatitis and hepatitis C infections.

A March 2020 study found that quercetin provides “comprehensive protection” against Streptococcus pneumoniae infection. As reported by the authors of this study: “Our results indicated that quercetin may be a novel potential drug candidate for the treatment of clinical pneumococcal infections.”

How Quercetin Combats Inflammation and Boosts Immunity

Aside from its antiviral activity, quercetin is also known for boosting immunity and combating inflammation. A 2016 study in the journal Nutrients describes the mechanisms of action, which included inhibiting a cytokine involved in systemic inflammation, dampening the production of inflammation-producing enzymes, and curbing other inflammatory agents.

According to the study, quercetin also stabilizes mast cells, has cytoprotective activity in the gastrointestinal tract, and has “a direct regulatory effect on basic functional properties of immune cells,” which allows it to inhibit “many inflammatory pathways and functions.”

Bioavailability

While quercetin does have potent antiviral effects, in order for it to work effectively, you need sufficiently high dosages to raise the level of quercetin in your body’s tissues. The relatively low absorption rate of quercetin is why a sunflower lecithin formulation was used.

Research published in the July–December issue of the Journal of Natural Health Products Research, found that a quercetin matrix has the same total absorption rate as quercetin phytosome—and higher peak blood levels.

“Since both of these forms of quercetin produce similar blood levels, they should produce the same effects at equal dosages based upon quercetin content,” Murray wrote in his newsletter.

“My dosage recommendation as part of a nutritional supplement program to support immune function is 250 mg twice daily.

“And in patients with active infection, my recommendation is … six capsules twice a day providing a total of 3,000 mg of quercetin. This high dosage should be taken for at least 10 days and then reduced to a maintenance dosage of 250 mg twice daily.

[This] high dosage may not be necessary. But my dosage calculations are based upon likely tissue concentrations needed to exert the strongest antiviral effects. And given the safety of quercetin, there is no harm at this level.”

Protocol Using Quercetin

One doctor who brought quercetin into the limelight early was Dr. Vladimir Zelenko. As hydroxychloroquine became difficult to obtain, Zelenko switched to recommending quercetin instead, as it’s readily available as an over-the-counter supplement.

Colin Powell’s Death the Latest Sign of the COVID Scam

By Michael Walsh  10/20/2021

Colin Powell, a good man and a great American, has died. He had been suffering for years from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, as well as Parkinson’s disease, but according to the media (citing his family), the real cause of death was “complications” from—you guessed it—COVID-19, despite the fact that he was “fully vaccinated” and indeed was about to get a booster shot when his compromised immune system finally failed.

There will be accolades aplenty forthcoming for General Powell, a former secretary of state, who ably served both presidents Bush in various military and civilian capacities. But his death, coming as it does in the midst of our long political and biomedical wrangle over the severity of the threat posed by the CCP virus that causes COVID-19, once again focuses attention on the social and economic destruction the panic over the pandemic continues to cause.

Indeed, the general’s death “from” COVID—despite his vaccination status—indicates one thing very plainly: the vaccines don’t work. If they did, if they really prevented anyone from contracting the disease, Powell might still be alive while his doctors battled his other ailments. But they don’t, he didn’t, and it’s high time everyone admitted it.

Don’t wait for the media, those thoroughly corrupt handmaidens of the Democrat Party and, latterly, of the U.S. government, to admit that. Indeed, just hours after Powell’s death, various outlets hastily rushed onto the air and into print with assurances that just because the vaccines don’t work doesn’t mean they don’t work.

 

USA Today: “Colin Powell’s death the exception among vaccinated, not proof inoculations don’t work.”

CNN: “Why vaccinated people dying from COVID-19 doesn’t mean the vaccines are ineffective.”

WUSA9: “Gen. Colin Powell’s death does not prove COVID vaccines don’t work.”

Media Campaign

Who are you going to believe—the media or your lying eyes and your gift of reason? For nearly 18 months we have been subject to an increasingly manic media campaign, at the behest of political operatives, to convince the world that the still-experimental vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna—which are more akin to gene therapy than conventional vaccines—and the more conventional one from Johnson & Johnson, are the key to stopping COVID.

That they vastly increase the revenues and balance sheets of the pharmaceutical companies as well as aiding and abetting the government’s appropriation of unconstitutional powers has nothing to do with the official enthusiasm for them, of course.

The media’s been parroting the party line practically since the outbreak of COVID, from “two weeks to slow the spread” and “fifteen days to flatten the curve” to “social distancing of six feet,” and “wash your hands ten times a day,” and “wear a mask,” and “don’t overwhelm the hospitals,” and “get your shot,” then “get your second shot,” then “get a booster shot,” and now “it doesn’t matter which shots you get, just keep getting shots until Joe Biden tells you to stop.”

If a vaccine that was touted as nearly 100 percent effective when it was first introduced now needs a series of booster shots ad infinitum for it to have the remotest effect, what does that tell you?

Ask Washington. The government has been pushing the panic button from the jump—another of Donald Trump’s many and manifest personnel misjudgments was giving Dr. Anthony Fauci a national platform and thus elevating the nation’s neurotic obsession with “health” into national policy—demanding unconstitutional lockdowns, quarantines, travel restrictions, mandatory vaccines, vaccine “passports” and other naked displays of power-grabbing, all meant to punish the innocent. And for what?

In the process, Fauci, a career “civil servant” and superannuated bureaucrat who has seized the reins of power and continues to talk out of both sides of his mouth because it’s clear he has no idea what he’s talking about, no longer cares whether what he says makes any sense. He should have been forcibly retired—fired—long ago, but his usefulness to the forces behind Biden’s throne ensures they’ll keep trotting him out no matter how wrong he proves to be.

Gaslighting

The real question is why? Why this hysterical insistence keeping COVID in the headlines, day after day, inflating the threat of a relatively minor respiratory illness with a 98+ percent survival rate into the second coming of the Black Plague? Why the constant moving of the goal posts from deaths to “cases”?

Why the various “road maps” out of COVID lockdowns that were unnecessary in the first place? Why the press-gang enlistment of the media to keep the public in line with increasingly implausible claims about an illness that, left to its own devices, would have vanished into the woodwork long ago?

The unspoken, false premise, which has by now been thoroughly inculcated in our population, is that absent the Dreaded COVID, we would all live forever. And that the unvaccinated, by radiating death spores at their vaccinated neighbors, are tantamount to murderers, even though the “nearly 100 percent effective” vaccines are supposed to prevent exactly that.

After all, via the political-medical machinations of our betters, we have stopped caring about heart disease, strokes, cancer, and even the common cold—hey, even the flu has disappeared! We’ve also stopped caring about Thanksgiving and Christmas, our kids’ childhoods, classroom instruction, civic virtue, national history, verities like sex differences, full employment, the movies, most sports, religious worship and just about everything else that used to make America, America.

In their place we now have armed police clobbering protestors when they’re not actually being fired or defunded, cities burning over the deaths of petty criminals in police custody, statues toppling, and the collapse of public order as crime has been effectively decriminalized in the name of racial “justice.”

Meanwhile, with a populace confined to quarters, unregulated tech giants like Twitter, Google, and Facebook run rampant, stifling speech, hijacking personal information to sell to the highest bidder, de-platforming ideological opponents (even while maintaining possession of their personal information), and pushing disinformation such as the Russian “collusion” farce… and now COVID.

Why are they so desperate? Why are they gaslighting us with tales of implacable viral bogeymen? What is it that they aren’t telling us?

It might be something, it might be nothing. I suspect it’s this: They like it.

Without the phantom menace of COVID, they could never have changed election laws, mandated arbitrary and capricious punishment of their enemies, destroyed the Trump administration, wrecked the economy, harmed our national defense, crippled our police department, suborned our legal system, destroyed childhood, instilled fear and obedience, encouraged neighbors to rat each other out, scapegoated those they despise, eliminated the southern border, and moved the nation steadily away from sovereignty and toward the New World Order of the Great Reset, whose motto is: you’ll own nothing and you’ll like it.

How do you like that? And what are you going to do about it?

Ted Cruz Introduces Legislation To Send Illegal Immigrants To Martha’s Vineyard, Other ‘Democrat-Led Communities’

Ted Cruz Introduces Legislation To Send Illegal Immigrants To Martha’s Vineyard, Other ‘Democrat-Led Communities’

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz introduced legislation Tuesday that would bring processing centers for illegal immigrants to places such as Martha’s Vineyard and other Democrat-led communities amid the ongoing border crisis.

“For the past ten months, President Biden and his administration have willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels, with no thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio, which are running low on resources from dealing with this massive influx of illegal immigrants,” Cruz said in a statement before introducing the legislation.

“That’s why today I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties,” Cruz added.

The legislation would establish new ports of entry in 13 communities across the U.S. and mandate that all illegal immigrants caught at Border Patrol Sectors in Texas be transferred to one of the 13 new ports for processing.

The 13 New Ports Would Be In The Following Locations: 

  1. Block Island, RI
  2. Greenwich, CT
  3. Martha’s Vineyard, MA
  4. Cambridge, MA
  5. Governors Island, NY
  6. Rehoboth Beach, DE
  7. Nantucket, MA
  8. Newport, RI
  9. Scarsdale, NY
  10. Palo Alto, CA
  11. Yountville, CA
  12. St. Helena, CA
  13. North Hero, VT

“Local Border Patrol Sectors in Texas continue to be overwhelmed by the volume of illegal aliens at the border. The Texas government has been forced to declare a state of disaster and provide its law enforcement and fiscal resources to address the crisis,” Cruz wrote in a press release.

Cruz visited the border in March and said that he encountered human traffickers and cartel members. “That’s Mexico and you can see there are three smugglers right there standing on the Mexican side looking at us,” he said in one of his videos.
