A good sensible albeit not very rosy read

This from Dr. Chuck Gbur, Cardiologist in Toledo.
Re: COVID-19


"I have been dark for the most part since this pandemic thing started. I have seen enough now that I feel it is time to share my experiences and thoughts. I am not an “Expert” like you see on CNN. However, I did earn a BS in combined sciences with an emphasis in biology and chemistry, a Doctor of Medicine degree, and completed an Internal Medicine Residency and Cardiology Fellowship. I also did post graduate work towards a PhD in Physiology, completing essentially everything short of the final few experiments to complete my thesis. I did extensive lab work using molecular biology looking at heat shock proteins. I also spent 25 years in the military working on numerous staff’s, participating in exercises and courses covering the spectrum of CBR warfare to medical logistics, Naval War College, etc. I have been a practicing Interventional Cardiologist for 25 years.


 When this COVID-19 “pandemic” started, I was skeptical and felt there was a lot of people and politicians overreacting. By the end of March, I was asked to be part of our Hospital Incident Command System. At that time, I remained a little skeptical, but did my job to plan for the “worst case scenario”. I did this based on projections and models, realizing full well that no plan survives the first shot. I watched the local and national news, tract data from numerous sources, and read people’s responses and comments on social media. As time went on, the dots became less and less connected. Things didn’t and don’t add up. I am no longer skeptical, now I am convinced this entire “pandemic” has been massively mismanaged and when this is looked at retrospectively in the future, nothing short of a massive Charlie Foxtrot. Several comments/observations:


• First, I believe this virus was not naturally occurring, but genetically manipulated. I still have not formed an opinion as to whether the release was accidental or intentional.


• I think this virus was present at least several months prior to being recognized.


• People need to understand that the entire draconian response that we are witnessing was designed with a mission statement to “flatten the curve”. Not to save lives, reduce deaths or anything like that. Flattening the curve is like squishing a water balloon. You don’t change the volume in the end. You just spread things out over a longer period of time- thereby not overwhelming the hospitals.


• New York and Ohio are different. So is Wyoming and South Dakota and every other geographical area in the country. It makes no sense to develop blanket policies and apply them to a very big and diverse country. This includes nearly every policy developed by medical professional organizations, regulatory bodies, state and local health departments and the government as a whole.


• I believe Dr. Amy Acton in Ohio is a very smart person and has the best intentions at heart, but she suffers from tunnel vision and lacks “operational experience”. She was assigned a mission and will do anything to complete it- without taking into account all of the impact and unintended consequences her decisions caused. I don’t fault her, I was once a ‘young’ battalion surgeon at a Combined Arms Exercise (CAX) with 3/25 Marines. I had tunnel vision then and didn’t give a rat’s ass about anything but taking care of my battalion. Later as a little older Regimental surgeon and the MAGTF surgeon at CAX, I had a new perspective. Now I was the one all the other medical personnel below me bitched about, claimed I was taking their assets or personnel. It was because now I was responsible for not just a battalion, but an entire Marine Air Ground Task Force. And more importantly, not only was I responsible for the medical care of the MAGTF, my overriding and primary objective was to complete the assigned mission of the commanding general. Way too many policies and decisions were made based on the wrong “mission statement”. In my opinion, the mission statement should have been something like “To develop policies and procedures to mitigate/minimize the impact of COVID-19 on the population and the normal operation of the country.”


• This virus is much more prevalent than reported or realized. Some studies suggest, 50 times more people have been exposed than detected. I suspect that it’s much larger. So, if we accept the 50X number, for every diagnosed case, there are 50 people out there that have it. Of those diagnosed, 80-90+% have either no symptoms or minimal to moderate symptoms. A small percentage get seriously sick, and many will die. Those that die in general are old, have other medical issues and comorbidity. Yes, I know, there are the occasional children and young people that get sick, have other manifestations (Kawasaki like illnesses, strokes, etc.), however you see that in most viral illnesses, such as the flu. It just receives absolutely no attention from the media or social media.


• This virus will run it’s course and we can’t stop it. We may change it’s velocity or trajectory, but in the end, the same number of people will die. Keep that in mind. The same number will die. We have destroyed the economy and in the end the only thing we will be able to show is an economy in shambles and policy changes that have far reaching and irreversible consequences.


• For those of you that argue it is worth giving up “freedom” for “protection”- you are dead wrong. And in the end, you will have given up freedom and not be any safer.
• Again, we have done nothing to “cure” anyone. There is no FDA approved treatment. Hydroxychloroquine has been reported to be effective in numerous small trials. The drug is safe and cheap. Most of the military have taken it at some point. The use of this drug has been affected by politics and finances. The media and pharmaceutical companies do everything in their power to discredit a drug that cost $0.06 and is mentioned by Trump for another unapproved drug that cost $1,000.00 a day. Am I being cynical? Maybe. But keep following the money.


• “Herd Immunity” is the only thing that will really protect us. Either by vaccine (which doesn’t exist yet) or naturally occurring. By that, people need exposed, infected and then develop antibodies and immunity.


• People should be allowed to social gather. We should not be under this ‘soft’ Martial Law. If consenting adults make a decision to gather, especially on their private property, they should be allowed to, in fact they should be encouraged. If they become infected, most will not even know it. But they will be growing the herd.
• High risk people, the frail, the sick, the elderly- they should be social distancing, sheltering in place and wearing a mask. Otherwise mask and gloves are stupid and largely ineffective. A huge waste of resources.


• Speaking of wasting resources- wiping down every grocery cart, limiting access to stores, and all of the other stupid things we are doing haven’t shown to really do anything. Just wash your hands.


• Closing the schools was a mistake. All of the policies being made to reopen some time with desks 6 feet apart, not allow kids to eat in the cafeteria, etc. are not going to be effective, not protect anything, cost an immense amount of money and place a huge unnecessary burden on the school systems. Kids for the most part do really well and account for a small fraction of the cases, despite what the media tells you. They are little vectors of disease. If they stayed in school, they would all have been exposed, immune and happy and healthy, and no longer be a risk to their grandparents and other relatives at risk.


• Life in this country will never be the same. The “new norm” isn’t normal at all. In fact it’s bullshit.


• The unintended consequences of our decisions have yet to be realized but will be far reaching. I am going to LMAO once the Sokolove Law commercials come out looking for people exposed to hand sanitizer who have cancer. Just wait, it’s coming.


• There will be a “second wave” as we relax the martial law mandates. It is inevitable. Again, we didn’t do anything to stop the virus.


• If the government tries to tighten things up again, I do not think people will comply this time. Sure, the uninformed sheep will, but most people won’t.


• Yes, I know some of you had this and were really sick, felt like hell. That’s what viruses do. That’s what the flu does too.


• Yes, I know this isn’t the flu. The major difference clinically though is that there is no immunity anywhere. So, it is much more virulent. But it also isn’t some alien virus like the Andromeda Strain.


• There is most likely going to be a major food shortage this Summer and Fall. Partially due to supply chain disruption, decreased production and panic buying.


• There will likely be a spike in violent crimes- hungry people do things like that. Plus, many communities are being forced to cut back on social services due to decreases in revenue. Our local community has cut 10% of the police force because of revenue shortfalls.


• If the virus gets introduced to a tight group of old and frail people with multiple medical problems and no immunity- many will get infected and many will die. That’s what happens in nursing homes. It happens with the flu too, just not as bad because some partial immunity and protection from the flu vaccine. But it still happens.


• All of the statistics are garbage. When the State comes out and instructs you to list COVID-19 as the cause of death on death certificates regardless of actual cause of death, something is wrong. The asymptomatic COVID-19 + person hit by a truck didn’t die from the virus. Then 2 weeks later you are instructed to count a suspected case as an official case- we will never be able to look at the data and draw reasonable conclusions.


• The sooner people get out and get on with their lives, the better we all will be. A flatten curved is just a long drawn out tragedy causing far more harm than good.


• There is going to be increasing polarization in society, it has already been pretty bad. But mix in an election year and throw in a pandemic, gasoline on the fire.


• Speaking of gasoline- when oil hit -$40.00/barrel (that’s negative forty dollars), think what that means. Yea, maybe lower gas prices, but it also crippled the American oil industry. The environmental extremist may be thrilled- but wait until they are hungry. The appearance of the virus during this glut is one thing that makes me wonder about an intentional release of the virus.


• The next war isn’t going to be guns and bombs- but economic warfare, cyber warfare using viruses to wreck economies.


• The future isn’t really that bright. "

some of his statements are excellent, some I'm not so sure about. and the people will anyways is not all that smart. and china, I believe, did this on purpose - or else they would not have lied about it not being transmissible person to person. they lied to let it spread. that's what I think.

You're right.  Another damning piece of evidence is that the Chinese govt. murdered a leading scientist/doctor who "couldn't keep his mouth shut".

which reminds me about problems with the left - and self-described "independents" who swim in Egypt -

A. They ignore history, and a lot of them refuse to know it. It doesn't meet their criteria of validating their hateful emotions.

B. They ignore evidence. We've seen "a ton" of evidence about that.

C. We've some to a point in America where a subculture feels entitled because obaMao commie types have told them that for years. But it's worse now - they've had a disaster of a president manipulate them into hostility and acting out. And, they take America for granted. They take FREEDOM for granted. It's like someone who lives in the desert is THRILLED with mountains. But his cousin? in the mountains is bored, and wants to go live in the desert. I've talked to a lot of folks who have seen the world, some of the worst places.

 D. We have an entire subculture of "kids"? who don't know the evil of china, of the old soviet union...or n korea, etc. It doesn't occur them that serious hell on earth has occurred, due directly to the hideous evil of communism/socialism.

E. they don't know history, like I've said. What is sad, ...when you show them history ...they go off on tangents and start calling somebody nasty names and they get po'd. They FEEL that their EMOTIONS are facts, nothing else matters.

F. These tendencies - they should go read some books - like JFK's "Why England Slept". "GERMS" - that I've mentioned before. Learn history - it tends to repeat itself, especially when societies don't know it. The blood, sweat, and tears shed to become a free nation in the face of overwhelming largest military on the planet. And we won. You read about John Jay, Jefferson...etc etc - in the beginning, they tried to be diplomatic in reaching an agreement to get the yoke of vicious tyranny off their backs. But tyranny has a way, every time, of being all power, all consuming of freedom, and dangerously vicious when challenged.

G. Gee... every time I've posted the words of the FBI agent who infiltrated the weathermen (=antifa/blm/communism/marxism), over the years, lefties change the subject and won't comment. Every time, I believe.

H. That subculture is ...FEELING that they should hate because other people are imperfect. Statues should be taken down, names of everything should be changed. Example - they HATE Thomas Jefferson - he had slaves. end of what they understand because they are happy to have an outlet for their hate. TROUBLE IS - Jefferson INHERITED a giant farm. 600 slaves. and freed some of them, and worked tirelessly to have a ban on slavery put into our Declaration of Independence. That makes him great in most people's books... who KNOW the full history.

I. You read about George Washington, Ben Franklin, etc - about how they grew up, their younger days. Some things are funny, some are crazy. They were imperfect people.  But they became GREAT AMERICANS in the service of their country, with courage that isn't easily surpassed by anyone else in those days. They were brilliant scoundrels as young men...who later saw tyranny, and to a point, they knew the tyranny had to be fought in a war despite the incredible odds. That is PRINCIPLE, folks.

J. Lefties HATE others who believe in what they don't. Which is to say, lefties do NOT BELIEVE in anything. They get attention by fighting those who DO believe. In capitalism, God, Real Marriage, the family, freedom, Constitution/Bill of Rights, the right of innocent born and unborn children to life and not tortured/murdered, our Flag...our Anthem...our military...Christians, (for emphasis - our 1st and 2nd Amendments), other Americans' property, careers, reputations.... (have I missed any of them?) they don't care because their fake reality is how they FEEL.

K. They just sit back and intentionally/unintentionally go Saul Alinsky. The prominent dems like higgardly clinton, obamao.....idolized his advice on how to dominate and accrue power.

this is who Saul Alinski was:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky

This is a letter higgardly actually wrote to her idol -

and it goes deeper:

https://oathkeepers.org/2017/02/saul-alinsky-hillary-clinton-barack-obama/

In 1969 Hillary Clinton wrote her 92-page senior thesis on Alinsky’s theories. A great admirer of Alinsky’s blend of ruthless and stealth activist tactics, Hillary personally interviewed the famed author for her project. She concluded her thesis by stating:

“As first lady, Clinton occasionally lent her name to projects endorsed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the Alinsky group that had offered her a job in 1968. She raised money and attended two events organized by the Washington Interfaith Network, an IAF affiliate.”

Ultimately, Hillary’s investigation of Alinsky’s methods and ideals led her to conclude that the Lyndon Johnson-era federal antipoverty programs did not go far enough in redistributing wealth among the American people, and did not give sufficient power to the poor.

and, from the link above:

"

Three of Obama’s mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation. (The Developing Communities Project itself was an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi for the creation of “a more just and democratic society” is rooted firmly in the Alinsky method.)

One of Obama’s early mentors in the Alinsky method, Mike Kruglik, would later say the following about Obama:

“He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.”

For several years, Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method. Also, beginning in the mid-1980s, Obama worked with ACORN, the Alinskyite grassroots political organization that grew out of George Wiley‘s National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO)."

what we are seeing now, in our judiciary, congress, leftwing mayors and governors...

(many funded by soros)...in the riots supported by those mayors and governors...

is a more advanced state of radical tyrannicala uprising to take over our gov.

go back to that FBI agent and what the weathermen said about "eliminating" many millions of

Americans who would refuse to go along with their new gov. Yes, they were serious.

Now, that subculture is far more than just the weathermen. Thousands - burning, combating police, and businesses, assaulting anyone who is not them.

"Why England Slept". A lot of America must wake up before we slide into despair.

Again - history. of Venezuela. etc etc etc different places in the world.

In conclusion, I have to go have a late breakfast, lol...it's history: Even the soviet union fell apart. great dynasties have disintegrated. countries around the world have fallen into despair. Americans MUST come together.

https://www.gotquestions.org/turning-away-from-God.html

" God gives us His laws for our own good. He created us to fellowship with Him and walk in righteousness. When we do that, we are living within the healthy boundaries He established and are protected from much of the heartache and catastrophe Satan devises. But, when a nation turns away from the true God and becomes its own god, the Lord removes His protective hand and allows that nation to experience the world it has demanded. Romans 1:18–32 shows us the progression of people and nations that have defied God and redefined morality. Homosexuality, unbridled lust, and idolatry are all part of God’s judgment on a nation that has turned away from Him. "
