BELOW IS PART 1, by Dennis Byrne

By Dennis Byrne, ‘Barbershop’ Kentucky State, April 24, 2020 at 11:17 am

Do the controversial lockdowns, the preferred strategy to fight the coronavirus pandemic, actually work?

This is a critical question, because virtually the entire American population has been sent into hiding at a mega-trillion cost to the economy, based on the scientific (we are told) evidence that it is the best and, perhaps, the only way to fight the pandemic.AdvertisementPauseUnmuteLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%Remaining Time-0:04Fullscreen

But such evidence is hard to find because an entire nation of some 330 million people has never been shut down, leaving a big void in scientific literature.

18 month quaranteen

So, Wilfred Reilly, an assistant professor of political science at Kentucky State University, set out to answer the questionDid lockdown states experience fewer Covid-19 cases and deaths than social-distancing states?” He concluded:

The answer? No. The impact of state-response strategy on both my cases and deaths measures was utterly insignificant.

Considering the millions of jobs lost, the devastating impact of shutting down vvt

Wilfred Reilly

society and, and, most importantly, the thousands of deaths cause by the coronavirus, Reilly’s research is bound to be viciously attacked.

Reilly understands that and invites researchers to access his research and run their own  by requesting it here. In other words, he’s inviting anyone to conduct their own peer review.

He’ll be challenged on the basis that in trying to compare the effectives of the shutdown in states that imposed it and those that didn’t he will be comparing apples to oranges because states are so different demographically.

Using regression analysis, Reilly took into account those differences by including the demographic variables of  “population, population density, median income, median age, diversity (measured as the percentage of minorities in a population), and the state’s Covid-19 response strategy (0 = lockdown, 1 = social distancing).

The result: “There is no relationship between lockdowns and lower Covid-19 deaths.”

So, how did we get to the point where lockdowns became the only accepted strategy? Reilly writes:

The original response to Covid-19 was driven by an understandable fear of an unknown disease. The epidemiologist Neil Ferguson projected that 2.2 million people could die in the US alone, and few world leaders were willing to risk being the one who would allow such grim reaping to occur.

However, as time has passed, new data have emerged. A top-quality team from Stanford University has pointed out that the infection rate for Covid-19 must logically be far higher than the official tested rate, and the fatality rate for the virus could thus be much closer to 0.1 per cent than the 2 to 4 per cent that was initially expected. And empirical analyses of national and regional response strategies, including this one, do not necessarily find that costly lockdowns work better against the virus than social distancing.

Posted in the interest of rational debate.

Could devastation to individuals’ ability to flourish become irreversible?

We were told that we had to upend an economy, go into solitary confinement, and divorce ourselves from normal life because this would rage beyond any previous pandemic. We were told that this virus with 846,000 current confirmed cases was worse than the H1N1 that broke out on Obama’s watch that infected 60,000,000 people. (We were conveniently not told that Obama had authorized $3.7 million U.S. tax dollars to be used at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to utilize corona viruses in bats in 2015 — but that’s yet another deception of omission.)

‘I am the governor and you’re not’: Deadly Costs of Extended Shutdown Orders?

Open Letter to Governors and Politicians from an Old-School Journalist:

by B ‘There Are Two Sides to Every Story’ J 4-23-20

Dear Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Governors Cuomo, Newsom, members of the mainstream media and all Pezzonovantes,

We know what’s going on. The jib is up with yet a third antibody study out April 23 (New York) that also missed the model mark by roughly 50x, much like the first two (see Santa Clara and Los Angeles studies, below) announced earlier this week. As far as actual deaths – the most important factor instead of the projected 3.4% MORTALITY rates you and the World Health Organization warned us about as late as March 3 – we’re seeing DEATH rates closer to .05 % or 50 covid-19 deaths per 100,000 population (U.S) with only Germany showing a lower death rate. The media has been ‘leading’ with ‘shocking ‘ news for days that U.S. has the highest number of Covid-19 cases but they don’t tell you that the death rate is only .05% with an over 98% survival rate (and closing in on 100% as we are now learning with these new antibody tests that more and more people actually have had the virus and survived. )

covoid-19 rates

Most states have already begun showing a drop in new covid-19 cases, though we won’t try to project a bell curve. With or without more testing, all indications are that, with continued, reasonable ‘distancing’ the numbers will continue to drop and could all be eliminated in the next few months. (We’ve already seen a near leveling of the bell curve in China and South Korea, though those numbers must be taken with several grains of salt

Unsubstantiated near leveling of the bell curve in China and South Korea, the first two countries to be affected by Covid-19

Criticize President Trump all you want. There’s no free lunch, even though you would like nothing better than to keep the free lunches coming for Americans as the national debt increases. Just keep printing the funny money and extending the sheltering deadlines by two weeks at a time, as you’ve been doing the past six weeks (or just make it 12 or 18 months as some of you have already proposed, but at least right up to the November election.) You will have accomplished your goal of making America fat, lazy and happy(?) By then, most of us will be broke but you’ll dole out more money when we need it, and finally, you will have your way after four years of your repeated, blatant attempts at dismantling America and you will wrest the presidential seal away for your wonderful candidate who would have never otherwise been able to beat President Trump. We’ll see about that.

In the meantime before we finish our story, Kevin McCullough has some words to add about the latest antibody (New York) study ‘Antibody Testing Proves We’ve Been Had!’

Antibody Testing: Proves We’ve Been Had!

Kevin McCullough|TOWN HALLPosted: Apr 23, 2020 3:30 PM

Could devastation to individuals’ ability to flourish become irreversible?

There is simply no other way to state this.

Nearly everything we’ve been told about models, rates of infection, deaths, and recoveries was inaccurate.

I’m not here to argue that it was malfeasance or ignorance — both are unacceptable. But the one thing that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s stunning announcement made clear on Thursday is that there are some pretty shocking — and what should be — reassuring truths.

Cuomo announced that antibody testing in New York state, which only began four days previous, was already demonstrating that at minimum 13.9% of New Yorkers, had COVID-19 late stage antibodies.

The implication of this is a shockwave to the system.

With a population of 19,540,500 the findings point out that over 2,500,000 New Yorkers had the virus and have recovered. Keep in mind that as of this writing that only 263,000 New Yorkers have currently confirmed cases. Also as of this writing New York has reported 19,543 fatalities. 

We’ve been told that the true death rate is 7.4% in New York. We were told there would be hundreds of thousands dead. We were told that this was worse than the flu, which has still recorded more deaths to date in this past flu season—even though the CDC instructed medical personnel to start counting influenza, heart disease, pulmonary, respiratory, drug overdose, and possibly even car crash deaths as COVID-19 deaths.CARTOONS | GARY VARVELVIEW CARTOON

But none of these “truths” turned out to be so.

The death rate in New York State isn’t 7.4%, it is actually .75%. The recently ended influenza season numbers from the CDC indicate possibly 56,000,000 cases of flu, 740,000 hospitalizations, and 62,000 deaths. Under the current count from the Johns Hopkins Dashboard in this five month stretch CoVid19 has racked up 845,959 confirmed cases, 122,000 hospitalizations and 46,972 deaths.

A couple of other observations are extremely relevant. To begin with the flu — which has no vaccine but rather a randomized version of a shot designed to help develop antibodies to fight the version of the flu that “smart people” *think* will be the primary version that particular year — has remedies that physicians prescribe in primary care on an as needed basis. So we’re not accustomed to thinking that the flu is this deadly killer that all of life must be shut down to prevent. CoVid19 had no known treatments at the beginning of the breakout, and for political reasons—and possibly financially incentivized ones to boot—the most effective treatment for CoVid19 became a political football. Even the supposed “negative” trials that were reported on this past weekend, had cherry picked subjects that were mostly late stage victims of the virus. As Dr. Vladimir Zelenko pointed out on my show this week, doing so created the negative outcomes “purposefully & by design.” When used under a physician’s care, in the primary care basis, and early on after testing or onset of symptoms, the hydroxycholoroquine, azithromycin, & zinc cocktail reduced the rates of deaths and long term infectious stages. Zelenko’s numbers to date: 1,450 patients treated, two deaths, four ventilator cases (all fully recovered,) and all others recovered. Zelenko and other physicians using the treatment are releasing the world’s largest Meta-study to date within the next few days that will examine more than 2,000 confirmed cases.

The antibody numbers from Cuomo also scream one other harsh reality. The virus was in America long before January.

No thanks to the Communist Chinese Party — who bear the sole responsibility for every American who died from CoVid19 — the infection made its way to American sooner than we had believed. With three flights a day from Wuhan to New York’s John F. Kennedy airport alone the virus was being imported faster than understood. 

Since going into national lockdown we’ve also failed one other key component of recovery from this virus—herd immunity. We’ve developed not nearly enough of it. For if 2.5 million New Yorkers were able to fight it off without any treatment at all—unaware they even had it—how much more immunity did we miss out on creating by simply sheltering everyone in place?

We are well on our way to a vaccine. We’ve also got a $12 treatment with the hydroxychloroquine cocktail that has smashed Brazil’s fatality rate by 95%.

Most importantly we’ve got millions upon millions of Americans who have been exposed to CoVid19 and who now have the late stage antibodies that demonstrate immunity.

It is time to acknowledge these facts, draw the necessary conclusions they lead us to, make changes for the benefit of the American people (for once), and end this nightmare.

Thank you Governor Cuomo for acknowledging it, now let’s go!  ###

Part 3 – Stanford and Santa Clara Studies

The data is now in. New Stanford study* of Santa Clara and Los Angeles (CA) populations show that ‘sheltering’ is not keeping people from dying. New antibody tests are showing nearly 50x more people have been infected with coronavirus than modelers had told us as the disease was running its course as virus’ do. NOW, instead of quarantining those who really needed it, we have delayed the onset for many more deaths perhaps 6 months* down the road. ‘


“The (Stanford) study has been interpreted by some to mean we are closer to herd immunity – the concept that says if enough people in a population have developed antibodies to a disease that population becomes immune – than expected. This would allow some to more quickly get back to work, a strategy currently being deployed in Sweden”, reports The Guardian.

Remember the old chicken pox parties and small pox parties before vaccines when families actually gathered together to build antibody immunity? Though they’ve since gone out of favor since the advent of vaccines such non-sheltering could be most effective when no vaccine is available. Has our government and medical industrial complex done the right thing with its first-time-ever sheltering edict, shutting down the economy going on six weeks while costing more than 20 million jobs and closing down thousands of businesses, many permanently? It’s easy to print money to tide them over while raising the national debt to unprecedented levels, but will society ever be able to return from this devastion, which may have been all for naught?

Maybe pox parties are no longer de rigueur, but, by isolating ourselves we are doing just the opposite of those well-intentioned pox parties. Thereby, we cannot build up immunity…we’re only delaying virus onset for the oft-quoted ‘6 months’ down the road, until i.e *election time?

The only people we need to carefully shield are the elderly, sick and health-compromised, which is a much easier task than trying to shelter the entire population. We should still require the general population to continue the same safeguards (mask, washing, etc.) now in place. Businesses such as restaurants could re-open with such careful measures in place including ‘chair and table distancing’ where tables should be separated by at least 6 feet , and , perhaps individuals at tables separated by an empty chair or equivalent space. After all, we’re allowing people into grocery stores and pharmacies so why not restaurants and other businesses if we keep in place the same safeguards we’re using. We would depend on ‘self-policing’ people who don’t maintain guidelines.


It may be time to dilute Administration’s virus gurus Birx and Fauci’s influence and bring in more voices and more option(s) who would bring into play the new studies showing that hundreds of thousands are mere carriers of the virus and not dying. Eventually everyone will become immune and/or the virus will die out. Eventually it will have less impact than the flu.

The cure IS becoming worse than the illness. The economy is suffering and people are being affected in other ways that could end in illness or death. We’re already seeing a spike in suicide rates (e.g. 8,000 percent increase in suicide calls at Los Angeles County suicide hotline) and depression (in more ways than one). Hospitals tell us they’re not seeing many emergencies such as heart attacks and strokes because people are afraid of ‘radioactive waiting rooms.’** Meanwhile, certain politicians and people keep moving the goal posts to lengthen the lockdown. First, it was lowering the death rate . Now they say we have to wait for a vaccine. As for the Georgia governor wanting to open society at this early date, maybe there’s some logic: There are going to be more Covid-19 cases either way, so why delay months and just get over it right now; at the same time it will make more people build immunity anti-bodies

There is a obvious political agenda with many in a particular politica party promoting the extension of sheltering from 12 to 18 months without even giving current efforts a fair chance. The longer we shelter the worse the economy will get and lives could be affected in worse ways and higher numbers. Meanwhile, people lose their old working zest and so become even suicidal (se above) . Other side affects include the failing diary and failing cattle industry

For some reason there’s a lack of concern and even civility of those NOT working, especially by working politicians, such as Governor Andrew Cuomo, who (4-23-20) answered a mild-mannered reporter with ‘I am the governor and you’re not.’ . Instead of having more concern and understanding, some state governors , politicians (and media parrots) are becoming ‘little dictators‘ like Cuomo telling people, literally, ‘where they can go.’ (editorial opinion)

In her ‘Great America’ article, ‘Deadly Cost of Shutdown Orders,’ Heather McDonald asks hypothetical questions (which were never answered) to Cuomo and 11 other U.S. governors who recently announced shutdown extensions into May and beyond :

  • How many coronavirus deaths do you expect to avert by the shut-down extension?
  • What will your state’s economy look like after another month of enforced stasis?
  • How many workers will have lost their jobs?
  • How many businesses will have closed for good?
  • How many of your state’s young residents, seeking employment for the first time, will be unable to find it?

‘Instead, the announcements of the prolonged shutdown were representative of government decision-making during the coronavirus crisis: opaque, lacking in criteria for measuring success and failure, and bereft of any attempt to measure the benefits of mitigating one particular health problem against the costs—including other health problems.Gov Cuomo How do you arrive at your cut off dates?’ says MacDonald in her article

…And families and kids are quickly adapting to the ‘lazy bastard’ lifestyle

Meanwhile. Some folks are getting used to their new-found freedom and free government money, often more than they were earning at work. And families and kids are quickly adapting to the ‘lazy bastard’ lifestyle. Latest stats show 80% of people no longer want to work.* Meanwhile, the media is playing up the positives of a lockdown, e.g. less air polution, perhaps in an effort to get folks accustomed to the lifestyle . Is America embarking on a new socialistic way of life?

‘Cure Worse Than Virus?’

So, yes, Governor Cuomo, the cure could be much worse than the virus. The virus does NOT always result in DEATH, Mr. Cuomo- in fact, 98% of people do not die. Had we reversed course and better and earlier protected the more risk groups such as elderly, very young and comprised we could have had that number closer to 100%, but instead we played politics and tried to protect everyone. Then there was the masks and ventilator scare (and, in retrospect, ventilators shouldn’t have been needed as much) if we quarantined those risk groups


Though it’s only two studies, the shocking disparity between the new antibody findings and original expectations could change the entire ‘shutdown’ scenario and bring question as to the efficacy of the unprecedented Covid-19 shutdown. This along with the Sweden and other countries lack of a shutdown effect could signal a major and irreversible error in Administrative judgement affecting many lives. Though Sweden did not fare well in the changeover- plus their numbers of deaths skew higher because, unlike other countries, they count ALL deaths and not just hospital deaths- there appears to be a calming of cases as the economy there gets back on track; the next weeks should give better indication. We should have a final answer in the next few weeks whether the shutdown here and in other countries were huge and possibly irreversible mistakes that could take decades, if ever, to put countries ‘back together again’ , and lives back on track.
