In this podcast, Dr. Dan Erickson, who recently had a video with five million views censored by YouTube, explains what “herd immunity” is all about and why we should end the lock down. Basically herd immunity happens when the majority come down with the coronavirus and develop an immunity and as a result the virus has no new people to infect and the pandemic ends. But governments have taken a new approach, we are hiding people, so they don’t catch the virus. This is why many are now talking about a second wave, because there are thousands who have not come down the virus. In other words, this pandemic could go on for months or even years until they discover an effective vaccine which also could be months or even years away. The other option is to not have a lock down and let everyone catch the virus remembering that 80% will have minimal to no symptoms. You need to protect those most vulnerable. This will result in many catching it quickly, and of course …
In what is an unusual move, YouTube censors responded to criticism over why they took down a video by Dr. Knut Wittkowski on the need for herd immunity in dealing with the coronavirus. For YouTube censors to do this, they must be feeling the heat. For the virus to be brought under control, Wittkowski believes the majority of the people need to contract the virus and develop a ‘herd immunity,’ and because of that, he believes governments should end the lockdowns. Studies have shown that 80% of the people who get the virus have minimal or no symptoms. With nearly 50% having no symptoms, this means they don’t even know they are sick. The ones most vulnerable to the disease are the elderly and those with underlying health issues. This, of course, is contrary to the message of the mainstream media that supports the lockdown and destruction of the economy. The YouTube censors removed Wittkowski’s video, that had 1.3 million views, because it provided “misinformation.” When the Daily Caller asked why the video was removed, …
“Two-thirds of U.S. residents who believe in God see the pandemic as a divine message urging us to change our lifestyles.” I think God is always trying to speak to us, but now we have a global pandemic. What message are you receiving? Is your life changing? READ: American believers see coronavirus as sign from God to change ways Some people see a divine message about the virus, in hailstones: READ: Coronavirus-shaped hailstones ‘are a message from God to stay at home’ A message from God is a good thing, but the answer makes all the difference.
When South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said she would not put the state under lock down and destroy its economy over COVID, everyone said this decision was a grave mistake. Noem said she trusted the people of South Dakota (population 900,000) to make the right decisions and would not rob people of their civil liberties and freedom to enforce stay-at-home orders. And despite having no lock down, the number of active COVID cases is starting to decline. Here are South Dakota’s latest COVID stats, as of Saturday, May 16, 202, according to Keloland News: Active cases sits at 1,242, down 27 from the day previous. There were 72 new cases of COVID, compared to 99 recoveries Death total for COVID is 44. 36 of the people who died were over the age of 60 — 82%. The total number of people testing positive for COVID in the state sits at 3,959. 2,673 people have recovered from COVID. 304 people have been hospitalized for COVID and only 75 are currently in the hospital, down 5 from …
Back in early January, before COVID-19 became the flavor of the day, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, told CNN that the 2019-20 flu season was going to be a bad one. Fauci said: “The initial indicators indicate this is not going to be a good season — this is going to be a bad season.” He added that it was on course to be as severe as the 2017-2018 flu season when over 61,000 people died from the flu. Nearly 51,000 of the deaths involved people who were 65 or older. READ: US on track for one of the worst flu seasons in decades I am not sure if this is significant, but the flu and coronavirus can have similar symptoms and several states, including New York and Ohio, are classifying people as COVID deaths without even testing them, as long as they show symptoms. Breaking News: New York City’s coronavirus death toll soared past 10,000 after officials added more than 3,700 people who had never tested …
England has been one of the countries the hardest hit in recent weeks by the coronavirus and London, its capital city, has been the focal point of the outbreak. New research that the city is only getting 24 new coronavirus cases a day and could be virus free in a matter of weeks.
A 35-year-old man was recently found dead in Colorado’s Montezuma County. After an autopsy by the local coroner, George Deavers, revealed a blood alcohol reading of .55, which was nearly double the lethal limit, Deavers attributed the man’s death to alcohol poisoning.

Government unions in the UK are expressing outrage after a leaked report indicated that the government is considering a two-year pay freeze for government workers, as the UK Government copes with an expected £337billion deficit because of the pandemic.
In an interview with CNN, the Democratic governor of Illinois, J. B. Pritzker, said that the “restrictions on businesses and citizens” in that state will remain in effect until the end of May. Then he added without a vaccine that it could continue on indefinitely. Pritzker said: “If the Chicago Tribune thinks everything will go back to complete normal without us having an effective treatment or a vaccine, they’re just dead wrong,” Gateway Pundit had these kind words to say about Pritzker’s comments: “There is no end in sight. In fact, Priztker believes all people living in Illinois should obey his authoritarian orders until the coronavirus is ‘eradicated.’ The coronavirus will always exist so Pritzker wants his state living in fear with people ‘socially distancing’ (Marxism) and wearing masks forever.” READ: Face masks and social distancing forever?

Though Florida and the state of New York have relatively the same population, According to Dr. Marc Siegel there have been 5,000 deaths in New York nursing homes from the Coronavirus since March 1, 2020, compared to only 1,699 deaths from the virus in Florida nursing homes. Why?
There was some strange things going on at the virology lab in Wuhan in October 2019, where many believe the coronavirus leaked out. Or should we say not going on. The Sydney Morning Herald writes: US intelligence agencies are reportedly examining mobile phone data suggesting there could have been an emergency shutdown in October at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. According to a report, obtained by NBC News, there was no mobile phone activity in a high-security part of the Chinese laboratory complex from October 7 to 24. Previously, there had been consistent use of mobile phones. The report, carried out by private experts, suggested there may have been a “hazardous event”, specifically at the institute’s National Biosafety Laboratory, between October 6 and 11. Analysis of mobile phone data from around the institute also suggested roadblocks were in place between October 14 and 19. READ: Wuhan lab phone records show ‘possible shutdown’ in October
According to a report by NPR, US governments spent $660 million providing 17 field hospitals (four of which are not completed) to help deal with the pandemic, but added that most of them haven’t been used, like in, they haven’t handled a single patient by the time NPR released its report.
Though questions remain about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, it nevertheless exposed the unhealthy influence China’s Communist government seems to have on the World Health Organization (WHO).
One consequence of the Coronavirus Pandemic is increased surveillance over people. In the name of public safety, we are being watched closely. The government in this story is in the state of Israel. The reporters don’t like Israel, and they are probably saying that resistance to that government won’t be easy now. The lesson for us all is that our lives can be watched and recorded. We are only safe if good people, in honest governments, choose to treat us fairly. The power to oppress us is available now and only human kindness can save us; or the power of God to protect us.

The Supreme Court of Texas has just ordered the release of Shelley Luther, the owner of a hair salon who was jailed by Dallas County State District Judge Eric Moyé, after Luther reopened her hair salon in violation of the state’s lockdown order. Luther actually reopened her salon only a handful of days before the scheduled reopening of hair salons allowed under the state’s lockdown transition. When she was brought before Judge Moyé, Luther explained that she and the other hair stylists in the salon needed money to feed their children. But Judge Moyé would have nothing to do with that explanation and gave her three alternatives — she could apologize, pay a fine or spend seven days in jail. Luther told the Judge: “I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish. I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go …
The parable of the good Samaritan involves a man who went out of his way to help a person who had been attacked by thugs, robbed and basically left unconscious on the side of the road. Several people walked around the man, before the good Samaritan arrived, bandaged the man’s wounds and then transported him to a nearby inn and paid for the man’s stay until he was healed (Luke 10:25-37). Based on this story, Samaritan’s Purse, an organization currently headed by Franklin Graham, provides financial and medical assistance to areas hit by disaster. They will bring in doctors and nurses and provide medical aid at no charge to anyone who needs it. So when officials at New York’s City’s Mount Sinai Health System called Samaritan’s Purse for help in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, the organization immediately responded. At no charge to New York City or the state, Samaritan’s Purse set up a 68 person field hospital in Central Park and immediately began treating people. In an interview with Faithwire, Franklin Graham said: …
According to Fox News, the Chinese government is now punishing anyone and/or their family members who contract the coronavirus in that country. This includes people attending funerals of those who died from the coronavirus. Many believe this is happening because coming down with the virus brings shame to government as it exposes the incompetence and lies of President Xi Jinping and the Communist Party of China.
According to tubefilter, YouTube is continuing to censor videos about COVID-19, that the Social Media giant does not agree with. In its article, tubefilter discussed a statement made by YouTube’s Chief Product Officer, Neal Mohan, in an interview with Bloomberg. Among other things, Mohan commented on YouTube’s recent censorship activities: “YouTube is also on the hunt for videos that “might encourage people to flout stay-at-home orders,” and is now removing videos related to “#filmyourhospital,” Mohan said. (The latter is a social media hashtag that urges people to film apparently empty hospitals near them to “prove” there actually aren’t thousands of critically ill patients being cared for across the U.S.)” READ: The Pandemic Sparked A 75% Jump In Views For YouTube’s News Content, Chief Product Officer Says So why would YouTube want to yank what appear to be legitimate videos of empty beds in hospitals? Empty hospital beds are pretty common knowledge. I was recently talking to a friend who said that about a third of the beds on the floor where he is hospitalized are …
We are social creatures, and this lock down is causing serious mental and emotional issues. Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services based in Los Angeles is set up to handle suicide calls? It operates with 285 people, with 70 of them working full-time. In February this year, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, they handled 22 calls, and then in March they recorded 1,800 calls, an 8,000% increase. Call it a coincidence, but yesterday my wife and I ran into a friend at a store. We chatted for a bit, and then she told us what happened to a friend who suffered a non-life threatening accident requiring an ambulance. The medics told her that they had handled three suicide calls before her. And if that wasn’t enough two days before this conversation, a main thorough fare around our city was blocked as police successfully talked down a man who was poised to jump on the highway below. And these are just the incidents we stumbled upon in our small city. How many more are there? …
Is the lock down succeeding? Not really. According to a report by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, in order to stop the pandemic at least two-thirds (60% to 70%) of the population must catch the virus and develop what is called herd immunity.
California Governor Gavin Newsom just gets no respect. When Newsom ordered Californians to stay away from the beaches because he wanted to protect them, Californians responded with this: So why isn’t Newsom getting any respect? Because while claiming on one hand he is protecting Americans, with his other hand he released seven hardened criminals back into the community. These seven are high-risk sex offenders and have a history involving “multiple” sex crimes. The Orange County DA, Todd Spitzer, was “outraged” that Newsom had released these hardened criminals into the community. Spitzer issued this statement after their release: “These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend. They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break.” READ: Orange County DA ‘outraged’ after commissioner releases 7 dangerous sex offenders due to COVID-19 restrictions
On Thursday (April 30, 2020), the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center announced it was ending its pandemic protocol and returning to normal services. The decision was made for a couple of reasons.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, another study conducted by University of East Anglia and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation Trust researchers concluded that there is link between low vitamin D levels and the spread of COVID-19 and mortality rates.
According to reports the Communist government of China is racing to be the first country to produce a vaccine for the COVID-19 virus, that many believe leaked out of one of the Communist regime’s Level-4 virology labs in Wuhan.
It’s hard to imagine there would be empty hospital beds in the middle of this pandemic, but there are. A friend of ours recently suffered a serious health issue requiring medical attention. He told us that about a third of the beds on his ward are empty. He added when people leave, they are not being replaced with new patients.
The province of Quebec is implementing a gradual end to its lock down. This will include the reopening of stores with outside doors on May 4, 2020, along with manufacturing and construction. The province will also be reopening daycares and elementary schools on May 11, 2020. Predictably this has alarmed many people, because with approximately 26,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,700 deaths, Quebec was Canada’s hardest hit province. But there was a very clear reason for this decision as Quebec Premier François Legault started off his news conference announcing the reopening with a chart showing the number of deaths from COVID-19 in nursing homes compared to those outside nursing homes: According to the article on CBC reporting the decision: “Legault repeatedly said there are ‘two worlds’ in Quebec. While the situation in long-term care homes remains critical, he says, it is stable elsewhere in the province.” READ: Why Legault feels it’s safe to reopen economy, even though Quebec hit hardest by COVID-19 Study after study has shown, the elderly and those with underlying health …
A recent study out of Indonesia suggests that a vitamin D deficiency may lead to increased susceptibility to COVID-19. Researchers in that country went through the medical records of those with COVID-19 to determine their levels of vitamin D. According to the study’s abstract: Results revealed that majority of the death cases were male and older and had pre-existing condition and below normal Vitamin D serum level…. When controlling for age, sex, and comorbidity, Vitamin D status is strongly associated with COVID-19 mortality outcome of cases. Instapundit gives a further breakdown of the study provided by a Facebook friend: “Just under half (49.7%) of cases had normal vitamin D status, and only 4% of them died. Just over a quarter (27%) had insufficient vitamin D status, and most of them (88%) died. Just under a quarter (23%) had deficient vitamin D status, and almost all of them (99%) died.” Vitamin D levels tend to shrink in the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere because of less sunlight, as sunlight converts cholesterol to vitamin D. Not …
An intriguing video exposing the “state of fear” that has trapped many states and particularly cities in a Draconian COVID-19 lock down. The video takes a quick look at what is happening in Colorado, providing several charts and articles showing that COVID-19 is clearly on the decline. But despite this, the lock down continues both in the minds of many and among government leaders because we have fallen into a “state of fear.”
The US state of Pennsylvania just recently removed hundreds of deaths from its COVID-19 count. Apparently some in the health department’s counting department had included “probable” deaths to the official COVID-19 death count. This resulted in a doubling of the number of deaths attributed to the Coronavirus. Of course, they were quick to point out that we shouldn’t treat this as some sort of conspiracy to jack up the death counts for COVID-19. READ: Pennsylvania forced to remove hundreds from COVID-19 death count over glaring irregularities It’s just a coincidence that ER doctors in California say they are being pressured to list COVID-19 as the cause of death on their reports, when it has not been confirmed. The flu has very similar symptoms to COVID-19 and during the 2017-2018 flu season, the CDC stated about 80,000 people died from the flu. READ: Flu season deaths top 80,000 last year, CDC says
At a recent news conference, two California doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, who have been on the front lines dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic are calling for an end to the lockdown stating its impact is on par with the seasonal flu in both the number of cases and death rate.
One of the great lies of our time is, you will always be what you are. We like to divide the world into tribes, and we like it if everyone stays in their place.
The Epoch Times recently produced a video linking the Coronavirus with a Communist run virology lab in Wuhan, China. Why did Facebook declare this video false? The Epoch Times responds.
New York has been one of the American states the hardest hit by COVID-19. The Journal of the American Medical Association decided to take a look at the records of 5,700 people who had been hospitalized for COVID-19 and made several interesting discoveries:
Sweden took a different approach to fighting the Coronavirus than most other Western nations and the results are surprising many. They decided not to implement a full lockdown.
