Livingston on Flu

Fear is one of the strongest of human emotions. It's the go-to emotion when the elites want to exert more control or simply to distract your attention.
So when government men tell you we're on the verge of a pandemic that will alter life as we know it and then begin clamping down your liberties in order to alter life as we know it and the people comply by passively accepting the changes and making runs on toilet paper and hand sanitizers, the government has you right it where it wants you.
Governments rule by deception. Otherwise they could not rule at all. Governments use economic, social, moral and legal fictions to twist rational thought into self-sacrifice and the destruction of individualism. Men, by nature, do not willingly volunteer their property, their labor and their being into servitude. But they are manipulated by an esoteric system based upon word manipulation.
Governments are made up of corporate fictions or artificial persons. Therefore, the greatest enemy of government is the individual, and particularly the individualist. This sets up perpetual conflict and an ongoing effort of government to manipulate the individual against his best interest in favor of government and central authority. The ultimate goal of governments is to create nonpersons who are nothing more than chattels or merchandise "for use in commerce."
The individual feels oppressed and confused because he is dealing with government doublespeak that he cannot confront. He imagines that he understands government but has to deal with many complicated fictions as he strives to conform to "the law."
Coronavirus is just the latest in a long line of "pandemics" said to endanger life on earth. By exploiting people's fear over the mysterious "novel" COVID-19 virus, the elites are seeking to retain control and distract your attention from the economic collapse that has been ongoing for some time but accelerated as the crisis has been rolled out.
Crisis governing leads to more control. It's an old play from an old book. Don't fall for it.
Every year as fall approaches you hear that 36,000 Americans will die of the flu, so you must get your flu shot. How does the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) arrive at these numbers? It makes them up out of thin air, and the CDC admits this on its website:
The methods to estimate the annual number of influenza-associated deaths have been described in detail elsewhere. The model uses a ratio of deaths-to-hospitalizations in order to estimate the total influenza-associated deaths from the estimated number of influenza-associated hospitalizations.
Here's more from the CDC:
CDC estimates "that from the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 flu season, flu-associated deaths ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people."
As the CDC believes that 3,000 to 49,000 annual deaths in a country with more than 313 million people — the population in 2007 — is a travesty, it recommends everyone above age 6 should get the flu vaccine each year. It claims that the vaccine prevents flu 50 percent to 70 percent of the time.
Notice the use of the words "flu-associated deaths." That's because the CDC adds pneumonia deaths as if the flu is the sole cause of pneumonia. But as Peter Doshi, Ph.D., revealed in a 2005 report published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), actual annual flu deaths are measured in the dozens, not the thousands. From his report:
"[I]nfluenza and pneumonia" took 62,034 lives in 2001 — 61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.
In other words, the influenza virus was actually present in only 18 of 62,034 deaths attributed to both influenza and pneumonia.
Doshi followed up this report with a new one published in the BMJ in 2013 in which he found that in the hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples taken each year from flu patients in the United States and tested in labs, only 16 percent test positive for the influenza virus. It turns out that most flu cases are actually caused by bacteria or fungus or any of a number of other things except the influenza virus being blamed.
As the government hypes the danger of the coronavirus, we are seeing items being spread on social media comparing President Obama's response to the H1N1 or swine flu "pandemic" in 2009 to President Trump's handling of the current crisis. According to the World Health Organization in 2009, 18,500 people worldwide died from H1N1. But in a WHO report issued in 2012 that number had skyrocketed to between 284,000 and 545,400 total dead in 2009. How those 265,500 to 526,500 dead people were overlooked by their families for three years wasn't explained.
Despite the possibility there were half a million deaths caused by swine flu, the government didn't recommend businesses shut down and people suspend travel and shelter in place and avoid crowds of 10 or more.
Perhaps the reason is the numbers were total fabrications. A CBS report by Sharyl Attkisson found that people diagnosed with probable or presumed H1N1 infections likely didn't have it and may not have had any flu at all.
Tests on sick patients for H1N1 were coming back overwhelmingly negative. For example, in 8,853 tests conducted in Florida, only 17 percent showed H1N1 positive. In California, 13,704 specimens were tested and only 2 percent came back positive for H1N1; 12 percent for other flu. In Georgia only 2 percent of 3,117 specimens showed H1N1 positive. In Alaska only 1 percent of 722 specimens were positive.
The numbers were so bad that the CDC recommended testing and counting be halted. Yet the CDC still claims that 60.8 million people contracted H1N1 causing 274,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths. The numbers are complete frauds.
We are now seeing lies about coronavirus. Dr. Amy Acton, the director of Ohio's Department of Health, said at a press conference that 100,000 Ohioans may have coronavirus. When pressed to justify her numbers during a news conference the next day, Acton said the number was based on "guesstimating," which is exactly what the CDC and WHO do.
From the government's reaction one would think coronavirus was the deadliest disease to hit since the Black Plague. Yet there is a growing body of evidence that the disease has been in the U.S. since before Christmas... before WHO even knew it was in China.
On social media people are claiming to have experienced extreme illness in November, December, January and February with the symptoms of coronavirus: sore throat, severe body aches, headaches, extreme fatigue and the like. Although they tested negative for the flu and their doctors could not put a name on what they had, they describe it as the worst "flu" they've ever experienced. If that's the case, then the mortality rate for coronavirus is much lower than government is claiming. But there's no evidence the government men are looking back to see whether coronavirus was present. Nor is there any evidence that any significant study has been done to determine whether coronavirus is actually the cause of the illness, as Jon Rappoport's work shows.
Coronavirus seems to be following a similar path with regard to government's numbers and fearmongering. President Trump's point man on the Chinese flu is Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. On March 11, Fauci told a congressional committee that coronavirus is "10 times" more lethal than seasonal flu. Some worst-case scenarios making the rounds have millions of Americans dying from it.
But on February 28, 2020, Fauci co-authored a report that published in The New England Journal of Medicine that seems to paint a much less dire picture than the one he's made in public pronouncements
Here's an important excerpt:
On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%. In another article in the Journal, Guan et al. report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.
The big push, of course, is for government to see how far people are willing to go in surrendering their liberties to government before pushing back. That and to scaremonger people into yet another vaccine, even though none has yet been perfected for coronavirus.
Of course, evidence shows that the flu vaccine is hardly effective at all. But that doesn't stop Big Pharma and its CDC marketing arm from promoting it, even during the coronavirus "pandemic."
According to independent research by The Cochrane Library, in a year when researchers accurately predict which strain of flu will be predominant, 10 people have to be vaccinated to prevent one case of the flu. In years in which researcher's predictions miss the mark, it's one case prevented for every 30 vaccinated. According to research published in The Lancet, flu vaccines prevent the flu in only 1.5 percent of cases.
"Health care" in America is a system of killing off weak infants and aging adults. This is not largely suspected because of the disassociation of cause and effect. Nobody even suspects. The mode is vaccinations and inoculations.
If there is a very rare protest, the "authorities" just say that an occasional death is unavoidable and is for the "greater good." That term the "greater good" is statist philosophy that the people are cattle and it's permissible for some to be sacrificed.
But mass inoculations kill en masse. It is silent murder as "health care." This killing system is being perfected and fine-tuned without so much as a ripple of protest. Would you say the "perfect crime"? Incredible? Yes, the more incredible, the more perfect the crime.
If you do not want to be used by government and have this crime perpetrated on you, you must become aware of the government mindset. They are not thankful for the privilege to represent us. They believe it is their duty to "lead" and to rule, instead of responding to and respecting the power and wishes of the people.
Those who work in government are not leaders, are not in charge, are not "authorities." They are just representatives. You as the individual are the ultimate authority.
Governments do not want you to have authority over yourself. They want conformity and control. They want you to think self-reliance is damaging, and that government should be submitted to in all cases. Mass inoculations and universal healthcare mean control over your body by government. Government men always wants more of that and will seek it at every opportunity they get.
