The United States Is Where COVID-19 Deaths Are Being Under-reported 

By Margaret Flowers, Popular Resistance.


When the COVID-19 pandemic started, China responded quickly by reporting the novel disease to the World Health Organization and taking steps to identify and study the virus. Within a matter of weeks, it was clear that the virus was a serious public health matter. China then mobilized its resources and took an aggressive public health approach to contain the spread and care for those who became ill. For this, the US chastised China, calling it "authoritarian" and "draconian," instead of learning from the success of China. So far, China has controlled the virus, keeping the total number of cases..

Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwin’s theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design?

Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwin’s Doubt, and “Giving Up Darwin” (published in the Claremont Review of Books).

Robinson asks them to convince him that the term “species” has not been defined by the authors to Darwin’s disadvantage. Gelernter replies to this and explains, as he expressed in his essay, that he sees Darwin’s theory as beautiful (which made it difficult for him to give it up): “Beauty is often a telltale sign of truth. Beauty is our guide to the intellectual universe—walking beside us through the uncharted wilderness, pointing us in the right direction, keeping us on track—most of the time.” Gelernter notes that there’s no reason to doubt that Darwin successfully explained the small adjustments by which an organism adapts to local circumstances: changes to fur density or wing style or beak shape. Yet there are many reasons to doubt whether Darwin can answer the hard questions and explain the big picture—not the fine-tuning of existing species but the emergence of new ones. Meyer explains Darwinism as a comprehensive synthesis, which gained popularity for its appeal. Meyer also mentions that one cannot disregard that Darwin’s book was based on the facts present in the 19th century.

Agelbert NOTE: The following is textbook disinformation. The Venezuelan Navy Patrol Boat had hailed the Cruise ship for being unauthorized in those waters. The Cruise ship, nearly EMPTY of passengers, pretended to apologize. When the Venezuelan Patrol boat ordered the Cruise ship, which has a reinforced hull for dealing with icebergs, to go to a nearby port, said Cruise ship proceeded to RAM AND SINK the Venezuelan Patrol Boat. Then, to add insult to injury, the Cruise ship just left! The Venezuelan sailors were rescued by other Venezuelans that had been alerted to their plight.

All in service to the dictum, "Never let a crisis go to waste." More on how the neocons let loose on leftist governments are using the pandemic to wage war for capitalist plunder.

Supreme Court Blocks Absentee Ballot Extension in Wisconsin as COVID-19 Spreads

BY Jake Johnson, Common Dreams

PUBLISHED April 7, 2020

The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority Monday night was accused of green-lighting “one of the most brazen acts of voter suppression in modern times” after the body overturned a lower court ruling that extended the absentee voting deadline in Wisconsin by six days in an effort to allow people to more safely exercise the franchise amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In a 5-4 decision (pdf) along party lines, the high court ruled that Wisconsin voters must hand-deliver their absentee ballots by the end of the day Tuesday or have them postmarked April 7 if their ballot is to be counted. The decision rewards Wisconsin Republicans and GOP groups that led the legal challenge against the extension of absentee voting until April 13.

Matthew DeFour, state politics editor at the Wisconsin State Journal, noted on Twitter following the ruling that “there is no postmark requirement in state law.”

“The lower court judge changed the date, but did not add a postmark,” DeFour said. “The U.S. Supreme Court has just written a new election law in Wisconsin.”

In an unsigned opinion, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority attempted to wash its hands of any responsibility for intensifying an ongoing public health crisis by refusing to allow Wisconsin to extend absentee voting.

“The court’s decision on the narrow question before the court should not be viewed as expressing an opinion on the broader question of whether to hold the election , or whether other reforms or modifications in election procedures in light of COVID-19 are appropriate,”
the opinion stated.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg warned in a scathing dissent that the conservative majority’s ruling “will result in massive disenfranchisement”:

Because gathering at the polling place now poses dire health risks, an unprecedented number of Wisconsin voters — at the encouragement of public officials — have turned to voting absentee. About one million more voters have requested absentee ballots in this election than in 2016. Accommodating the surge of absentee ballot requests has heavily burdened election officials, resulting in a severe backlog of ballots requested but not promptly mailed to voters.

Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern wrote late Monday that the high court’s ruling “will nullify the votes of citizens who mailed in their ballots late — not because they forgot, but because they did not receive ballots until after Election Day due to the coronavirus pandemic.”

“Because voters are rightfully afraid of COVID-19, Wisconsin has been caught off guard by a surge in requests for absentee ballots,” Stern wrote. “Election officials simply do not have time, resources, or staff to process all those requests. As a result, a large number of voters — at least tens of thousands — won’t get their ballot until after Election Day.”

Let me be very clear about this. Tens of thousands of Wisconsinites will not receive their absentee ballots by Election Day BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC, THOUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN.

The U.S. Supreme Court's five conservatives just said: "Too bad. You don't get to vote."

— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) April 6, 2020

An election that forces voters to choose between protecting their health and casting a ballot is not a free and fair election. Nor should its results be treated as indisputably legitimate. This is a tragic day for democracy.

My piece: https://t.co/IlXfzkx0Bu @Slate

— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) April 7, 2020

Shauntay Nelson, Wisconsin state director of advocacy group All Voting Is Local, said the Supreme Court’s decision “defies common sense and threatens to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin voters.”

“Voters deserve free and fair elections where every voice is heard and the assurance that their health and safety will be protected while our democracy remains intact,” said Nelson. “It’s shameful that Republicans have used this crisis to their political benefit, silencing voters so they can remain in power. The result has been confusion, chaos and uncertainty for voters, all amid a global health emergency. This is no way to run a democracy.”

The Supreme Court’s ruling came just after the Wisconsin state Supreme Court overturned an executive order by Gov. Tony Evers and decided that Tuesday’s elections — which include the Democratic presidential primary and nearly 4,000 down-ballot contests — must proceed as scheduled despite the dire public health threat posed by COVID-19.

Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said in a statement that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision “raises grave concerns” that the right-wing body is “poised to unnecessarily interject itself in voting rights battles this presidential election season.”

“Contrary to the majority opinion’s claims,” said Clarke, “this case involved more than a ‘minor, technical’ question and will likely result in the disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands of voters as 500,000 absentee ballots have not been returned as of Monday night.”

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola


Remember last year when Washington Post reporters were boldly declaring that vitamins C and D could not (and should not) be used against respiratory infections? The information I was sharing about their use was deemed so dangerous to public health that I was branded as a "fake news" site by self-appointed, 😈 pharma-owned arbiters of truth like NewsGuard.

How times have changed. After having defamatory lies published about me, vitamins C and D are now (finally) being adopted in the conventional treatment of novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. ... ...

In my interview with him, Hunninghake suggested one of the reasons why conventional medicine has been so slow to recognize the importance of vitamin C has to do with the fact that they've been looking at it as a mere vitamin, when in fact it's a potent oxidizing agent that can help eliminate pathogens when given in high doses.

There are also financial factors. In short, it's too inexpensive.    Conventional medicine, as a general rule, is notoriously uninterested in solutions that cannot produce significant profits. One of the primary reasons we're now seeing its use against COVID-19 is undoubtedly because we had no expensive drugs in the medical arsenal that could be turned to.
