5/2/2021 Update on estimating herd immunity

Click here for story. Based on the Columbia University model, 277.35 million Americans (or 83.79%) may have natural or vaccine immunity. This figure is not additive. Some people, who got vaccinated AND peviously had the virus, we are counting twice. Some cities have already reached herd immunity.

 

Will the Pfizer vaccine kill more healthy 12 to 15 year olds than the virus itself?

The FDA is on the verge of authorizing the Pfizer vaccine for children 12-15 year olds under Emergency Use Authorization.

 

Healthy children (with no comorbidities) ages 5 to 15 have a 1 in 1,666,666 chance of dying of COVID if they get the virus.

The odds of dying for everyone in the 5 to 15 age group is 1 out of 100,000.

 

Healthy children (with no comorbidities) ages 15 to 20 have a 1 in 555,555 chance of dying of COVID if they get the virus.

The odds of dying for everyone in the 15 to 20 age group is 1 out of 33,333.

 

Based on data from the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), as of March 29, 2021 there have been 2,509 reported vaccine related deaths among the over 158 million people who have had at least one dose of a COVID vaccine. That's one death for every 62,973 people. This statistic is for all age groups and all variations of health.

 

As expected, vaccine supply has started to exceed demand

Most of those people who are at the greatest risk of dying or getting very sick from COVID-19, and wanted to get vaccinated, have already gotten vaccinated. 35.3% of Americans are under the age of 25. The vast, vast majority of this group does not need to get vaccinated. Despite endless media brainwashing efforts, evidently, there's people out there who understand this. That is why supply of vaccines has started to exceed demand.

 

vax

We have to ask, will we ever get to the government's arbitrary goal of vaccinating 70% to 75% of Americans? 44.7% of Americans have gotten at least one dose of a vaccine. That leaves 25.3% left (or 83.74 million people). At the rate that the curve has dropped off, it doesn't look like we're going to get to this arbitrary goal. Evidently, parents are not enthusiastic about getting their kids vaccinated. Young, healthy adults are not as enthusiastic as their parents and grandparents. So, instead watch for government to find creative ways to force more people to get vaccinated, even though they can't legally force people to get a non-FDA approved shot, and the closest ETA for any vaccine approval is October 2022 (for the Maderna shot). Watch for the media to use all the fear tactics, by focusing on outbreaks in other countries, on new strains of the virus, on that outlier death of a young, healthy person, etc. Also watch for corporate America to attempt to bribe people into getting vaccinated, with discounts, coupons, free ice cream, etc. But, the public is no longer listening.

 

Dangerous window following vaccination:

Why you don't want to be exposed to COVID-19 soon after getting your shot

People who recently got vaccinated often get hammered by the virus and frequently end up in the hospital or die. This is because of your body's short-lived antibody response from the shot. With the two dose vaccines, there is roughly a 4 week period during which you could get hammered by the virus instead of protected. This generally applies to all viruses and all vaccines (flu, measles, etc). Ideally, to mitigate risk of a bad reaction, you don't want to get vaccinated when the virus is raging all around you. Fortunately, in most cities the virus is endemic.

 

100% of the people who have had and recovered from COVID-19, already have T-cell immunity, and therefore a vaccine may well be worthless.

 

Of the remaining people who have never had the virus, there is strong evidence that for about 80% of this group, a vaccine may also be worthless, all because because they have enough preexisting T-cell immunity that they don't develop symptoms or at least serious symptoms. The evidence comes from this study, and is very closely substantiated by data from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, as well as from the fact that there is no place in the world where more than 20% of people have had significant, symptomatic disease from COVID.

 

Read before you run out and get an mRNA shot

We have a very good idea as to the short term risks from getting these mRNA shots. But the long-term risks are unknown because these shots have not been tested long term.

 

There are unknown risks regarding auto immune diseases, pathogen priming / antibody dependent enhancement, risk of infertility for women of child bearing age, and according to immunologist J. Bart Classen, possibly even neurological disorders (from the mRNA vaccines) that may take years to come to light.

 

Judy Mikovits, Ph.D. Mikovits predicts a long-term significant uptick in neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, such as psychosis, Parkinson’s, migraines, ALS and sleep disorders. She also believes there will also be a rise in pain syndromes like fibromyalgia, as well as cancers, kidney disease and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few.

 

Parler sells out

Parler has sold out to Apple. On 4/19/2021, it was announced that Apple will allow Parler back to their Apple App Store. This is unacceptable because Apple is part of the Big Tech censorship machine. Predictably, Apple allowed Parler back on because Parler agreed to moderate "hate speech and incitement". Speech should not be moderated. The best way to combat hateful speech is and always will be with more speech.

 

Unless this is a ploy to bring in lots of users, then defy Apple, Parler is done. Don't believe anything Dan Bongino says if he claims that speech will be free. Apple cannot be trusted ever. Our favorite is Gab. Gab especially, has never bowed to Big Tech.

Will Derek Chauvin trial verdict trigger civil unrest and then a stock market dip?

4-6-2021 (updated 4-13-2021) - The S&P 500 keeps hitting all-time highs. While we never recommend attempting to time the market, it might soon be a good time to rebalance your bond/stock mix if your allocation ratio has become imbalanced. The jury is expected to begin deliberating on Monday, April 19. If there is a not guilty verdict or if there is a hung jury, we all know what the BLM mob will do. However, this time around, the public is getting tired of riots. Also, with a Democrat in the Whitehouse, suddenly the Democrat leaders of these blue cities and their media lapdogs are against rioting. And, most importantly, in the grand scheme of things, a bunch of riots are actually small change. Think about it. The markets shrugged off a year of coronavirus shutdowns. But, sometimes the markets look for a catalyst when stocks have made big runs. The stock market is up almost 80% since 3/16/2020. If the markets care about the trial, selling could happen at any time.

 

Know your rights regarding "vaccine passports"

4-5-2021 - The vaccine companies are legally protected against lawsuits. However, in the USA businesses and other private entities are not. It is against the law to force someone to take an experimental treatment. Therefore, if you are forced by a university, an airlines or other business to get vaccinated, and you are later harmed from the vaccine, these entities can be sued. This presents a problem because the soonest scheduled FDA approval for a COVID-19 vaccine isn't until October of 2022 -- and that's if all goes well.

California infringes on people's rights by requiring

proof of vaccination or proof of being tested

to attend concerts at only 50% capacity

It is against the law for state and federal governments to force people to get a vaccine that is not FDA approved. Florida understands this. They decided that it is a clear violation of people's rights for businesses to require proof of vaccination.

 

But, leave it to the Marxist state of California to use loopholes to try to force people to get vaccinated. If a venue wants to hold an indoor concert, theater performance, or private gathering, in order to get to just 50% capacity, all of their guests must be COVID tested or show proof of full vaccination. Besides this being a violation of people's rights, why cap capacity at 50% if everyone is fully vaccinated or tested? They're treating vaccinated people as if they are unvaccinated, and treating COVID-negative people as if they are COVID-positive.

 

COVID-19 vaccination cards are ridiculously easy to fake and they're found all over the Internet! We don't recommend faking a COVID-19 proof of vaccine card unless you need one as a prop for a movie.

 

COVID cases continue to fall in Texas

despite reopening and Fauci calling it 'risky'

Texas Governor Greg Abbott ended all COVID-19 mask and lockdown restrictions beginning on March 10th, so they are 17 days into freedom. The incubation period for COVID-19 is 2 to 14 days, with 5 days being average. So, in looking at the most recent 7-day case totals to March 26 versus the previous 7 day period. Virus cases are in fact down 16.48%.

 

If we look at the most recent 10 day period versus the prior 10 days, cases are down 19%.

 

What if cases go up in the future? Since most people who are at risk and who want to be vaccinated, have been vaccinated, an increase in cases isn't necessarily a bad thing. If young people go to bars and nightclubs and then gain natural immunity, that's a good thing! It's what we should have allowed to happen all along. And at what cost to we destroy businesses? Public policy is about considering everyone -- not just a few. We didn't shut down the economy in 2018 when 78,000 died fo the flu. We have never shut down businesses in order to save a few lives. Automobiles cause about 38,000 deaths per year and another 3 million are injured or disabled. We don't ban automobiles.

Big Tech is censoring negative news about

the experimental, non-FDA approved mRNA vaccines

3-10-2021 -- Big Tech is cracking down on anyone who goes so far as to merely insinuate that things can go wrong with the vaccines. Truthful, factual content is being removed. Critical speech is being suspended or banned completely by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

 

And so, we report these events in the United States following COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. This data is from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from 12/15/2020 to 2/26/2021:

25,212 Adverse events

1,265 Deaths

4,424 Serious injuries

479 Permanent disabilities

2,743 Hospitalizations

 

NOTE: These are just events that were reported. Historically, less than 1% of all vaccine injuries and deaths are ever reported to VAERS. The CDC does not immediately release this data to the VAERS system, sometimes publishing it weeks later. Some of the above statistics may overlap, for example, one person may be counted as a hospitalization and a serious injury.

 

Weigh your risk and discuss with your doctor before getting vaccinated. It can't be emphasized enough that these vaccines are not FDA approved. Vaccines normally are tested for 4 to 6 years. The COVID-19 vaccines were released under emergency authorization.

Monday = Another affirmation that the bull market is ongoing

3-1-2021 -- The NASDAQ bounced back 3%, the DOW nearly 2%, the Russell 2000 3 1/3%, the S&P 2 1/3%. We just had a -33% correction in 2020.

A black swan event can happen at any time, but talk of a bubble right now is unfounded. Adhere to your normal bond/stock allocation ratio.

California's lockdown measures did not help

 

cases

 

2-15-2021 -- In looking at California's data, you would conclude that closing indoor dining, imposing curfews and closing outdoor dining made the virus worse! In fact, doing so only caused people to get together at their homes. The "experts" don't seem to understand that humans are social creatures. And in looking at the data, you might conclude that opening outdoor dining, helped flatten the curve.

 

Despite the fact that masks and lockdowns don't help, the media continues to double down. They're already calling for people to continue to wear masks even after getting vaccinated. California continues to ban indoor dining, and only allows people from the same household to sit at outdoor restaurant tables. Schools also remain closed.

2-9-2021 -- Back in June 2020, the WHO was exposed as being beholden to the medical establishment. A few emails is all it took to cause them to flip and flop.

 

Today the WHO declared that coronavirus is unlikely to have leaked from China's Wuhan lab. Anyone with common sense has to ask, how the hell can anyone ever come to such a conclusion. It seems too much of a coincidence that a bio lab is in Wuhan and COVID-19 just happens to have also emanated from Wuhan. We will never know for sure unless people squeal. Until then proximity is a very, very strong clue. A better question for debate is whether the virus was released intentionally or unintentionally. Given that the virus transmits so easily, this suggests that it is very possible that it was unintentionally released.

The 1957 flu season was only 1/3 less deadly

than COVID-19 in 2020

In 2020 one out of every 970 Americans died of COVID-19. That assumes that the death numbers have not been skewed to the upside by hospitals getting paid extra for treating COVID patients. In 1957, one out of every 1,482 people died of the flu. Did you ever hear about the US economy being shut down in 1957?

 

1957 - 116,000 flu deaths - 172 million US population - 0.00067% death date

2020 - 341,199 COVID-19 deaths - 331 million US population - 0.001% death rate

 

Vaccine 'Equity' - 'People of color' unknowingly

being prioritized as guinea pigs

In Los Angeles, one of the reasons they have literally had to dump out vaccines and are falling behind on administering the COVID-19 vaccines is because 'people of color' have been prioritized to the front of the line because they have been dying of COVID-19 at 3 times the rate as white people, and therefore the virus is racist. They gave this prioritization policy a happy name: 'Equity'. Story

 

Shutting down schools has a silver lining

Schools remain closed or partially closed in most states despite the fact that more children died of influenza in 2018 - 2019 than have died of COVID-19.

 

Deaths involving COVID-19 as of January 21, 2021

39 deaths - under 1 year old

21 deaths - 1 to 4 years old

58 deaths - 5 to 14 years old

525 deaths - 15 to 24 years old

 

Deaths from influenza in 2018 - 2019 season

266 deaths - 0 to 4 years old

211 deaths - 5 to 17 years old

 

Keeping schools closed damages the economy, it further devalues the dollar, stunts learning and causes more depressed kids to kill themselves. The Democrats have decided that pleasing the powerful teacher's unions will translate to more votes and campaign money. Also keeping people dependent on stimulus checks and unemployment checks translates to more psychological control of the people. But there's one silver lining. One less year in the classroom means one less year of left-wing indoctrination by liberal teachers. That could pay off for Republicans in future elections.

Twitter and Facebook shareholders brace for pain

Shares of Twitter have dropped 12.24% since Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump, who had a whopping 88 million followers. The downward fall may have begun days before the 'official' announcement of the banning of Trump. Twitter shares are down 17.15% since January 4th. And over at Facebook, they banned Trump at least until his term is over. You can read the writing on the wall: Trump is not coming back to Facebook either.

 

Donald Trump is considering building his own social media site. It makes perfect sense that Trump will move to some other platform where he will insist on retaining at least 51% ownership so that he can't be banned in the future. When that announcement comes, expect a mass exodus of Trump's followers.

 

It isn't just about Trump. Twitter and Facebook have gained bad reputations as the platforms of censorship. Yet another great advertisement for this yet to be determined platform. Investors will always have MySpace in the backs of their minds. In the months to come, this will cast a cloud over Facebook and especially Twitter. These companies are putting ideology ahead of profits. This has to be turning off investors. Some of this is baked into share prices, but once Trump makes his platofrm announcement, expect more stock blood bath for TWTR especially.

Gold peddlers ramp up ads

We know that Democrats like to spend, spend, spend. With Democrats owning the Whitehouse, House and Senate, what's to stop them from driving the national debt further through the roof? Hopefully Joe Manchin. Hopefully congressional leaders who are on the chopping block in two years. But, with the House moving towards Republicans gaining back control, expect the spend-happy Biden administration to tack on another 10 trillion in national debt in just year one.

 

The US debt to GDP ratio stands at about 127%. 20 years ago it was at 55%. The world bank estimates the "tipping point" of debt to GDP at about 77%.

 

Either way, anyone who suggests that we're now Germany circa 1920, and hyperinflation is just around the corner is spreading hysteria. Nobody knows. Our national debt could eventually go to 100 trillion and beyond. Trying to time the destruction of the dollar by loading up on gold now is a fools game that's been going on for years now. Never forget that gold is just one of many hedges against inflation. So are many other assets such as oil, natural gas, farmland, and to a lesser degree commercial real estate. Even stocks can be a hedge against inflation.

 

Is the 'UK variant' of COVID-19 really more virulent?

The so-called experts are declaring that there is a new variant of COVID-19 that is more virulent. But the experts have been wrong and flip-flopped so many times that we should never take what they say as fact. Common sense says that this could be a case of Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy. We know that viruses have seasonal peaks. Don't be surprised if at some point in time after the virus has died down, they say "Sorry. We misinterpreted a seasonal spike in cases as the virus being more virulent."
