COVID-19 censorship

Censorship-1315071_300

This HND piece takes a hard look at how the information mandarin class is actively censoring anything on COVID-19 they don't agree with. And, they don't care about the credentials of those they censor. But then, they also don't care that so-called "Nation's top infectious disease expert" Anthony Fauci has no specialized educational background whatsoever in infectious diseases. While on-the-job training can be important, in the field of medicine, you would generally need to have done a fellowship in infectious disease to ethically proclaim yourself as an expert.

That's why it is so egregious that real doctors who treat real COVID-19 patients, and posted a video of their press conference that got 17 million views on Facebook in eight hours, found it removed—as was the same video on YouTube.

Americans hate censorship, and sooner or later will realize that Big Tech is not on their side. It's one thing to steal your personal information and profit from it. But, it's entirely a different matter to limit your access to outside information, for whatever nefarious purpose they think they are serving.

Kids should be going back to school this fall in-person

5048-Clipart-Illustration-of-Happy-Children-On-School-Bus-And-Text

This HND piece presents the argument—strictly based on the best available science—that kids should be returning to school this fall as they normally do. Indeed, we use the copiously documented presentation by the Orange County California Board of Education, and give you links to the main scientific works cited.

At the end of the day, any arguments against re-opening, however well-intentioned, are simply based on raw emotion, and in some cases a weird sort of nihilism disguised as misplaced parental concern. But in an era of obscene politics ruling the day, all that's left is to try to be rational

More COVID-19 misinformation

Covid_19_misinformation

This HND piece presents just a few examples of an organized effort to mislead the public regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation. We start with an asinine story that appeared in the New York Times, no less, that had to be extensively modified once someone with brain one actually read it and pointed out the obvious nonsense to the now hapless newspaper.

From there, we get into how COVID-19 positive test statistics are being distorted, and the official excuse is something less than convincing. Then, we segue into failings at the CDC.

A look at excited delirium

Excited_delirium300

This HND piece introduces the syndrome of excited delirium, which is well-known to medical examiners, EMS personnel, and emergency physicians—even if it seems to be denied by others. The irony here is that the syndrome was identified (under the name Bell's Mania) in 1849, and thus is hardly something new.

Unfortunately, politics and the pressure of "polite society" have kept excited delirium from entering the entire medical lexicon. The joke is that both the DSM-5 and ICD-10 describe identical syndromes, even if they don't use that name.

COVID-19 panic porn

Panic-1393619_300

This HND piece takes a look at the frankly outrageous and biased coverage of the latest outbreak of COVID. During the past few weeks, many young people gathered in close proximity at protest demonstrations and bars. And, during the same period, testing for the virus increased greatly. So, surprise, surprise, there are plenty of positives being detected.

At the same time, deaths are dropping like mad, and while hospitalizations are up in many areas, this includes people who have been delaying procedures, and many others who are positive for COVID, even if that is not their major complaint. Still, extra dollars are in play for calling everything "COVID." And, yes, there are also some severe legit cases of COVID in the ICU.

However for the most part, the people testing positive now are either asymptomatic, or have very mild cases of the disease. Be assured that the ensuing media circus reflects the most obscene injection of politics into public health in history.

What about that second wave of COVID-19?

Covid19_second_wave

This HND piece digs into the latest COVID scare—that it could come roaring back, worse than ever. We give you some background on principles of immunology, including the notion of herd immunity. More testing is showing more positives, and that should come as no surprise.

It should make you feel better that a number of authorities are not buying into this hype, and that comparisons to the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-19 are ill-advised, given the great improvements in healthcare in the ensuing years, as well as the massive advances in mass communications.

When failures in public health, science, and politics all converge

Convergence_300

This HND piece uses the current COVID-19 situation to examine what happens when politics enters the already failed worlds of public health and science. It starts with a look at how and why science got ruined. Naturally, that didn't help public health.

We then segue into the bizarre paradigm whereby protests against the lockdown are evil, but much larger protests following the death of George Floyd are not only benign to health, they are even necessary. So, protecting people from catching COVID-19 is the most important public health issues, until it isn't.

Of course, in such a discussion, it is impossible to not comment on the scandalously overblown and overrated Dr. Tony Fauci—and we do.

Shouldn't we expect more from our public health agencies?

Expect_more_300

This HND piece examines the legacy of failure that is our public health agencies. We first focus on their handling of COVID-19, and the ridiculous policy of quarantining the healthy while ignoring the most vulnerable. This is brought into sharp relief when you realize that at least 43% of all deaths from the virus have occurred in nursing homes. And then, the frankly murderous record of New York state is compared with Florida. Florida— with a larger population and many more older residents—has a fraction of the deaths.

It hardly takes a rocket scientist to understand that forcing COVID-19 patients into such facilities is a recipe for disaster. So what does that tell you about the leadership of the Empire State? And, then there's the flagrant politicization in how the deaths from COVID are even being counted.

What about the entire theory behind the lockdown mentality? Prepare to be disappointed once again. If nothing else comes out of this pandemic, it should be the harsh realization that most medical academics and bureaucrats are little more than empty suits, whose value is immensely overstated. We then segue into the utter fiasco that is our record on obesity, dietary recommendations, and diabetes.

My last article on COVID-19 (for now)

Coronavirus-4914028_300

This HND piece presents a few more observations and contrarian points on the ongoing crisis. We discuss a number of published studies that seriously question the rigorous lockdown approach. In the first one, TJ Rodgers says that there is no correlation between the length of lockdowns are how many lives were saved. A similar study from Western Europe echoes Rodgers' results.

Next, infamous Professor Lockdown (Neil Ferguson of the UK), he of the 2.2. million deaths in the US, has been completely discredited. And, his personal life has about as much integrity as his epidemiological modeling. For this, Elon Musk gets in his digs.

Then, we segue into a treatment of masks—and how to use them; and end with a few snarky comments from Lionel Media.

More on COVID-19

Covid-4948866_300

This HND piece goes into more information on the virus pandemic. We start with a full rundown on the two labs in Wuhan that were handling dangerous viruses, and how they could have escaped—accidentally or otherwise. This includes an explanation of the Biosafety Level criteria and the lack of any publicized audit trail. And then there's the matter of whether or not this pathogen could have been specifically engineered.

We segue into the latest on hydroxychloroquine, and the lamestream media's bizarre attempts to stigmatize that therapy, even going so far as to put lipstick on that pig of a VA study. Also included is an interesting new theory on the pathophysiology of COVID-19.
