Slog international special report, No 1
Nach dem Thomas Schaefer Selbstmord, beginnt die deutsche Politik über strengstens Quarantäne von COVID19 zu werden.
Germany begins to look for pathway out of Lockdown
70 senior medics debunk ‘killer virus’ narrative
A pattern of ‘deadly’ exaggeration re COVID19 revealed
The finance minister of Hesse, Thomas Schaefer, committed suicide over the weekend. Although local contacts there describe him as “a jovial bloke who felt blessed and proud to be in the thick of grappling with our economic difficulties”, there is clear evidence that he had become depressed in recent days about the unrepayable cost of anti-COVID19 economic shutdown. He left a verified note for his wife, and there are no signs at all of foul play.
The point of his death is not to chase after another conspiracy shadow, but instead to clarify the importance of Schaefer’s death. For within his former Hesse remit lies Frankfurt, the epicentre of Eurozone fiscal mismanagement: Thomas was not just another obscure regional pol: he was a key liaison with both the Bundesbank and the European Central Bank.
He knew how economically suicidal long-term lockdown against Covid19 would be; he was widely expected to become the next political boss of Hesse.
For once, it is a relief to point out that Schaefer was an exemplary elected public official – devoid of past scandals and suggestions of impropriety. The thing for those who insist (in the face of so much contrary evidence against “killer Covid”) to grasp is that he was fully briefed on the consequences of EU economic shutdown. The madness of the approach became too much for him.
It may well be, however, that a good man has not ended his life for nothing: for already in the aftermath of this tragedy, CDU briefings to the media in Berlin show clearly that Merkel’s Germany is looking for a way out of the fatally flawed C19 lockdown strategy.
The German authorities will not be short of a strong rationale for so doing. Trawling through over 28 internet news sites yesterday evening, The Slog audited fully 73 senior and respected medical opinion leaders who refute the widespread political overreaction to COVID19…..that is, a lockdown/shutdown response most exemplified by Emmanuel Macron in France.
Alongside this, an obvious pattern of media, Pharma and Unelected State exaggeration is apparent across the Globe. So herewith some Truths…
n Germany itself, more than 80% of fatalities are elderly – over 60 years old – and more than 75% had underlying diseases present such as cardiovascular and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and, in some cases, tumor.
According to the latest data of the Italian National Health Institute ISS, the average age of the positively-tested deceased in Italy is currently about 81 years. 10% of the deceased are over 90 years old. 90% of the deceased are over 70 years old. 80% of the deceased had suffered from two or more chronic diseases. 50% of the deceased had suffered from three or more chronic diseases. The chronic diseases include in particular cardiovascular problems, diabetes, respiratory problems and cancer.
Less than 1% of the deceased were healthy persons, i.e. persons without pre-existing chronic diseases.
In Australia, standard social distancing in place, almost all businesses are closed and the high streets are empty. There have been around 50,000 staff “stood down” – in retail, hospitality, sport and airlines – over the past three or four days.
The Prime Minister has conceived a plan to “hibernate” all businesses for six months from now. Everything is collapsing: Centrelink is overwhelmed with new claimants, their offices are flooded with people all day, their website keeps crashing under the weight of visitor numbers, and the National Broadband Network (NBN) – the country’s broadband backbone – cannot cope with volumes.
The lives and livelihoods of tens of thousands – with the effects set to be felt for perhaps a decade to come – are under threat in the face of 14 deaths – all of them over 60, all but one of them over 70.
Yet the media persist in their misrepresentations: the Murdoch titles in particular – alongside the ever-compliant BBC – nurture myths about zero immunity, reinfection, the numbers involved in such drivel, and a 100% unwillingness to visit sites with no agenda revealing the reality of a relatively benign Coronavirus. You can read about all this and more at the last half dozen Slogposts available to study here.
British medical researcher Philip Duvall returned to the UK a fortnight ago after a spell in China at the rise and peak of the COVID19 epidemic there. He has this to say:
“I just wanted to pass on the point that during the first six weeks of this year I was living in Beijing, and there was no ban on informal gatherings and no social distancing of ‘two metres’. When I left Beijing three weeks ago, while I was still quarantined at the university, locals were coming and going to their offices in groups. In other words, our measures are significantly stricter than China’s”.
Duvall remains bewildered by the Establishment reaction to COVID19 beyond Asia.
I myself am in turn baffled (but suspicious) as to why both the UK and US Unelected States have considered it wise or helpful to wheel out comprehensively compromised modelling bunglers like Professor Neil Ferguson and Dr. Anthony Fauci – both of whom ‘enjoy’ a reputation in epidemiological circles for being spectacularly wrong.
Might that policy, I ask myself, be related to an agenda which insists that only the technocrats can be trusted “going forward”?
Heading towards the fore over the last 72 hours has been a finger of accusation pointing at the Big Pharma business sector in particular….and the attempt in Britain, France and the US to rubbish the established efficacy of cheap drug Chloroquine…especially when used in conjunction with other palliatives.
The next Slogpost will shine the blinding interrogatory light of facts and common sense upon the scandal bubbling up in France. It will implicate President Macron and global Pharma in a plan to profit from the arrival of COVID19 in our lives.
It is not to be missed: stay tuned.
The Slog aka John Ward describes himself as a Cognitive Dissident, in that he refuses to accept blatantly false narratives on current events. He is a staunch opponent of all political and economic ideologies. He believes in the Common Good of the decent majority and the quintessentially anti-social evil of the financialising 3%.
