US John Hopkins University Prof Says Don’t Believe Corona Virus Numbers

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to explode all over the globe, and authorities are warning that it is going to continue to get worse.

The number of confirmed cases outside of China roughly tripled once again this week, and if this outbreak continues to escalate at this pace there will be more than a million confirmed cases in less than a month.  But as bad as the official numbers are, the truth is that there are a whole lot more people walking around out there that have caught the virus but have not been tested.  In fact, a medical professor at Johns Hopkins University named Marty Makary believes that there are “probably 25 to 50 people who have the virus for every one person who is confirmed”

Don’t believe the numbers when you see, even on our Johns Hopkins website, that 1,600 Americans have the virus,” he said.

“No, that means 1,600 got the test, tested positive. There are probably 25 to 50 people who have the virus for every one person who is confirmed.

He added:

“I think we have between 50,000 and half a million cases right now walking around in the United States.”

If he is correct, and considering how easily this virus spreads from person to person, it isn’t going to be too long before this virus is everywhere, as Makary concluded:

“…we’re about to experience the worst public health epidemic since polio”

Other health experts are also warning that the number of Americans that have become infected is already extremely high.  As I pointed out yesterday, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton is convinced that the number of victims in her state is now above 100,000

Ohio health officials announced Thursday that the state has five known cases of the coronavirus, but one expert said that the number is likely much higher and estimated 100,000 undiagnosed cases.

Dr. Amy Acton, the director of the state’s health department, told reporters that the virus is “among us, but we can’t see it yet,” WBRB reported.

But of course what we have seen so far could just be the tip of the iceberg.

According to the New York Times, the CDC is projecting that up to 214 million Americans could eventually become infected…

Between 160 million and 214 million people in the United States could be infected over the course of the epidemic, according to one projection. That could last months or even over a year, with infections concentrated in shorter periods, staggered across time in different communities, experts said. As many as 200,000 to 1.7 million people could die.

Can you imagine how overwhelmed our healthcare system will be if that actually happens?

*******************************

And supposing this is repeated her in the UK (and there is no reason to believe it isn’t,) can you imagine the strain on the NHS, already struggling to cope with the demands placed on it due largely to the stupidity of virtue signalling left wing and neo – liberal politicians who think we should offer ‘free’ healthcare to the world.

We still have no idea how long the pandemic will last. Some experts say it will burn itself out in a matter of months but that is pure speculation.  What if the virus mutates as quickly as ‘flu, for which we have to have a new vaccine each year, or lasts for three full like the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1919 to 1921 did?

As things standeu, European, the entire western world seems to be in the process of shutting up shop as fear of the coronavirus spreads like wildfire, but can the economies of developed nations withstand such a shock to the system.  Many people are going to be deathly afraid to go out in public for the foreseeable future because this virus is so easy to catch yet the global economy depends on us rushing round like gadflies, sending shipments of good flying round the world, hoppong on and off passenger jets and ignoring the natural barries that have slowed previous pandemics .

This virus could be on the next surface that you touch, it could be on the next hand that you shake, and there is even the possibility that you could breathe it in during the next breath that you take.

In spite of this Emmanuel Macron, the idiot who serves as President of France and Ursula Van Leyen, the wannabe tyrant who is president of the EU have called for national borders to stay open and no restrictions placed on the free movement of people. In typical EU style their thinking is driven by globalist ideology rather than pragmatism.

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin

A few weeks ago the Irish General Election returned an inconclusive result as many voters rejected the traditional power duopoly of Finaana Fail and Fine Gael, both pro – EU, globalist parties, in favour of anti EU, nationalist parties with Sinn Fein (the political wing of the IRA being the main beneficiary. We predicted then that a bid by Europhile Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to hold on to power by taking his Fine Gael party into coalitioon with their traditional rivals Finanna Fail was doomed and would finish Varadkar, a Brussels puppet, and possibly lead to Ireland following the UK out of the European Union.

It looks as if the first part of our prediction is about to be realised already.

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin city centre

“We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government’
Hundreds of people came out to call for real change and protest at the possibility of a Fianna Fail and Fine Gael coalition on Saturday. People Before Profit’s Brid Smith TD, Homeless Action Ireland and Extinction Rebellion were among the groups that gathered at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin. Protesters, holding the banner “Stop the Fianna Fail-Fine Gael Stitch Up – March for Real Change” walked from Parnell Square to O’Connell Street.

Ms Smith said voters called for change in the recent General Election – not another Government led by Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael or Micheal Martin’s Fianna Fail. Ahead of the demonstration, she added: “We’re calling it a stitch-up between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and the reason we’re using that term is because the very clear sentiment of the recent election was not Fianna Fail or Fine Gael.

“They got roughly around 43% of the vote, which together is significant, but it doesn’t give them majority rights. “But the sentiment of the election is that we need real change – on housing, on health, on the cost of living, on reversing the pension age.”

Meanwhile, spokeswoman for Homeless Action Ireland Leah Daly said the wishes of half a million voters are being ignored. She was previously homeless with two of her children for two years, and forced to live in emergency shelter even though she was working for a private senior care company. Ms Daly added: “We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>>

Spain Arrests People Traffickers And Drug Smugglers Crossing From North Africa in Speedboats

by Arthur Quinnell, 7 March, 2020


Spanish police helicopter buzzes traffickers’ speedboat off the coast around Malaga (Picture credit: Central European News Agency )

Spanish police announced the arrest of 90 people suspected of being involed in an organised crime network that operated lucrative smuggling rackets that moved both people and drugs across The Strait Of Gibraltar from Africa to Europe.

The Civil Guard released a statement today stating that the smuggling network regularly moved people and drugs across the Strait from Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in northern Africa to The Costa del Sol in high powered RHIB (rigid hull inflatable boat) speedcraft of the type often used to move illegal immigrants from Libya to Italy or Turkey to Greece.

The Spanish national law enforcement agency said their investigators found evidence that 11 speed boats operated by the gang had carried a total of 269 people and over 10,000 kilograms of hashish from Africa to the Spanish mainland. The ring used radar systems and lookouts stationed along the coast to avoid detection, the police alleged. The advantage of the semi inflatable boats is they can operate in very shallow water.

The migrants moved by the racketeers were allegedly detained by the traffickers at a remote location in Spain until their families paid 5,000 euros ($5,600), a senior police officer said. The Civil Guard did not say when the arrests took place but revealed that another 39 people are under investigation in the case.

The police agency said officers involved in the operation against trafficking had so far confiscated over 10 tons of hashish, 26 boats, 29 vehicles, 250,000 euros ($282,000) in cash, and 12 firearms, during the investigation.

Ceuta is one of Spain’s two northern African enclave cities on the Mediterranean coast. Spain´s southern coast has become a major entry point for drugs and illegal immigrants into Europe since the mass migration crisis of 2015 when Italy, Greece and the Balkan States defied Brussels to tighten border controls. Since a far left government seized power in Spain, the Spanish government has taken a very lax line on preventing illegal immigrants posing as refugees and asylum seekers entering the EU though Spain’s leaky borders..

Le Pen Calls For Referendum To Stop “Submersion” Of France Via Mass Immigration

Marine Le Pen, leader of the French nationalist party Rassemblement National (National Rally) has called for a referendum on immigration policy to stop what she called the “submersion” of France via a “globalist” program of mass immigration.


Marine Le Pen

Speaking in a debate on problems caused by mass immigration and the growth of lawless, migrant dominated ghettos in French cities and towns, Le Pen told the French Parliament that the political establishment had betrayed French people and by overseeing a policy of mass immigration and the dilution of French identity at the expense of ordinary people.

Le Pen said the last 30 years of immigration laws were designed to be ineffective, allowing a virtual ‘open borders’ approach to immigration control which had resulted in  the current social problems. She said the policies had been “nothing more than political grandstanding.”

In another part of the speech she said the French people “recognise that uncontrolled immigration is a threat to their daily lives, to their way of life, and even, at times, a threat to their lives.”

Our country is experiencing a veritable submersion, yes a submersion, I dare to use that term, because it describes the reality of the unbroken wave that is crashing upon our cities, our towns, and now, because of your irresponsible policy of placing migrants in the rural areas, even the smallest villages,” said Le Pen.

She continued by  lambasting establishment politicians for trying to make discussion of immigration taboo and demonizing those who spoke out against uncontrolled immigration, saying a giant demographic displacement of people was taking place. In conclusion she accused the ruling duopoly of “treason” for failing to “defend their people.”

“But above all, without ever consulting the people, they organized the streams of legal migration and tolerated illegal immigration,” she added, saying this was driven by “the globalist ideology that guides them inexorably.” “The torrent of migration is destroying our welfare system, is making the entire penal system explode and is undermining the unity of the nation,” she added.

Le Pen also accused globalists of reducing man to his “economic dimension, as a producer and consumer, an interchangeable man, with no identity or cultural reference points, nothing but a cog in the wheel of global commerce.”

This is of course an almost perfect decription of the aims of Cultural Marxism as defined in the 1920 by members of the notorious Frankfurt School of political and economic academics.

Attacking President Macron and his lamentably inept administration for exacerbating the problem by attempting to deflect attention from their failures by virtue signalling, Le Pen dismissed the “debate” as a pointless “rehearsal for a high school play,” calling for a national referendum on stopping mass immigration.

“In this chamber a majority want this migration madness to continue. In France, a majority want this migration madness to stop,” she concluded.

Le Pen was heckled throughout the speech by pro-mass immigration, establishment politicians, but her words are likely to ignite still more unrest in France where months of strikes and disruption have destabilised the nation.

EU Borders at Breaking Point as Migrants Shipped to Frontier

This blog has always tried to point out to the lefties who screech about “open borders” that the European Union commitment to free movement of Labour only applies to citizens of EU member states moving withing the Union.

from Breitbart Europe

Tensions on Europe’s borders with Turkey are rising as thousands of migrants are brought to the frontier on unmarked buses and state-owned railways.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country’s borders to Europe were open for migrants some days ago, ostensibly because his country could not cope with an increased flow of refugees from Idlib, Syria.

Yet the move follows years of threats made by Erdogan to punish Europe for not furnishing his Islamist government with money and political support by opening Turkey’s borders — behind which are 3.5 million or more migrants waiting to travel to the West.

Erdogan has repeatedly expressed frustration with Europe’s failure to fully back his military operations in the Syria to carve out a Turkish zone of control and prop up rebels linked to al-Qaeda, which has resulted in deadly clashes between his forces and the Russian-backed Syrian government and its Iranian and Iran-linked allies.

There are now thousands of migrants packed into the so-called no man’s land on the Greco-Turkish border, with the Greek authorities struggling to repel the reportedly mostly male migrants seeking to breach the European Union’s common external border.

Despite Erdogan’s suggestions that the migrants are recent refugees from Idlib, this does not appear to be the case, with the migrants coming from all over Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia.  Continue reading

German Economy Slumps, Key Indicators Fall, Underlines Eurozone Economic Decline

With zero growth in the German economy over the final quarter of 2019 as manufacturing remained in a slump and exports fell, the wisdom of Britain’s middle and working class voters choice to leave the failing European Union was vindicated again. The German figures highlight the many challenges facing the Eurozone, which is hamstrung because it consists of 19 different economies (eith of them economic basket cases,) all needing very different solutions.

German’s state statistics agency reported today there was zero growth in the fourth quarter and a mediocre 0.6 percent increase for the whole year. And that paltry figure has only been achieved with the help of financial jiggery pokery from the European Central Bank (ECB)

Germany´s troubles are central to the economic difficulties of the 19-country eurozone economy and the European Central Bank, which has for several years been trying mask the reality of flagging growth and inflation with negative interest rates and newly printed money. Germany has been a manufacturing and export powerhouse in recent years and has propped up the rest of the sigle currency zone, but with German manufacturing in the doldrums and exports rendered uncompetitive due to increased costs imposed by ineffective and pointless “green” policies imposed on member states by Brussels, those areas have been sluggish and only debt funded consumer spending has kept the country out of recession. But debt funded spending is only ever a short term solution.

Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING Germany, told a German Financial Newspaper, “In general, the German economy remains stuck between solid private consumption and a paralyzed manufacturing sector.”

Slowing global trade and the uncertainty caused by the U.S.-China conflict over trade have been one problem. Another is structural change in industry, particularly the auto business, where companies must sink billions into developing electric cars and new services based on smartphone apps, both to meet regulatory pressure for lower greenhouse gas emissions and to head off competition from from the tech sector.

Nothing Is Truly Scandinavian: Self Hating Attack On National Identity Provokes Outcry

It was immediately obvious from the  torrent of vitriolic criticism the idiotic idea attracted was that Scandinavian punters were not on the same wavelength as the ‘woke’, university brainwashed imbeciles with their media studies and social science degrees who dreamed up the campaign.   Scandinavians were not at all happy at being told they should be tortured with angst about the lack of social justice in Afreekaaa, South East Asia and other third world shitholes, and racked with with guilt over the numerous acts of what the woke brigade insist on calling “cultural appropriation,” the adaptation of ideas from backward cultures that have not advanced much since the stone age, without which European civilisation could not have developed and  that north Europeans had previously, mistakenly thought of as the building blocks of their very own national identity.

Among the more ridiculous claims, and using a rhetorical device of the ill-informed, the campaign suggests that “rumour has it“ that world famous Swedish meatballs are actually Turkish. There is of course no evidence to support this in fact, as the classic recipes for Swedish meatballs use beef and pork and Turkey is a Muslim country, evidence suggests Swedish meatballs  did not originate in Turkey. Just about every national cuisine has a version of meatballs or meat patties. Except of course for sub Saharan national cuisines. I’ve been told by a half – Senegalese, half Swiss friend that in his experience sub Saharan African nations don’t have anything sophisticated enough to be called a national cuisine.

Why do the work brigade have to do this shit? Why are they so ashamed of the nations and social cultures that nurtured them that they constantly have to try to belittle those nations and cultures and, in this case,  shame a nation into believing that a popular dish is one they have stolen from some impoverished shithole country where people still live in mud huts and charring meat over an open flame is about as sophisticated as cooking gets? It’s the cheapest, nastiest, most unpatriotic campaign imaginable and the people who embrace such ideas are cheap, nasty, smal minded, self – hating, emotionally crippled virtue signallers.

The case here is that the campaign was the idea of &Co, an oh-so-self-aware Copenhagen-based agency shows the extent of self-loathing and guilt that exist in the liberal world of the creative class. Now if these cupid stunts want to kill themselves, that should be fine with sane people, the world always needs less arseholes. but to try to reduce the entire population of a global region to the kind of dysfunctional, self – pitying inadequacy that residents of the media bubble and supporters of far left politics exist in is bordring on criminal.

Perhaps their ham fisted (or meatball fisted maybe,) attempt to declare “What is truly Scandinavian? Absolutely nothing” should have been run past members of the public in Norway, Denmark and Sweden before they started disowning national treasures like sticky pastries, meatballs, marzipan sweetmeats and parental leave, because the ill-judged idea showed all the finesse of The Muppets’ Swedish chef at work on one of his more chaotic recipes.

Outside of the advertising community bubble people object to having their entire nationality excoriated, diced and served up as simply the sum of various parts because an agency with a lucrative airline contract has bought in to the hippy dippy, nineteen – sixties idea that the world is one big happy melting pot populated by multicoloured, gender fluid, easily influenced childbrains. Patriotism, the ‘woke’ crowd believe, is the thin-edge of the nationalist wedge, and identifying specific traits as belonging to only certain kinds of people is culturally disrespectful.

It’s utter bollocks of course, our history, the shared history of our nations is what makes us, and from the histories of our diverse nations and cultures comes the diversity that the ‘woke’ crowd are always screeching about but mistakenly think relates only to skin colour.

As the late Carl Sagan opined: “It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out”.

Because that is what has happened here. Nothing Is Truly Scandinavian is an example of the ‘woke’ crowd trying to impose a homogeneous, ersatz culture on the civilized world because the truth is they hate true diversity.

The Islamic Republic Of France

Liberté, égalité, fraternité, Allahu akbar!

France’s left-wing elite are accused of cowardice for failing to support 16-year-old girl facing death threats after she insulted Islam online, the ruling class have been also accused of cowardice for failing to support a 16-year-old girl who has faced death threats after she allegedly insulted Islam online.

The girl, known as Mila, said Islam ‘is a s*** religion’ and the Koran is ‘full of hate’ in an outburst online after she repeatedly rebuffed a Muslim boys’s sexual advances. Her angry video came after her tormentor said she had ‘insulted our God Allah, the one and only’ and that it was hoped she would ‘burn in hell’.

The French teenager is now in hiding after allegedly insulting Islam online. What French media are not reporting is that the girl was herself insulted after refusing the sexual advances of a male who then revealed he was Muslim and told her she was a dirty whore who would burn in hell. French Police told a French teenager to go into hiding after she received death threats for insulting Islam.

The 16-year-old has been advised to stay away from her lycée (sixth-form college) in southeast France after calls on the internet for her to be killed, raped or attacked. Typical Muslim male behaviour we have observed.

The girl, named only as Mila, is understood to have been told by officials that she should avoid being seen in public until the controversy fades. Great police protection of a vulnerable citizen! A 16-year-old girl is threatened with death, and in Grannyfucker Macron’s France the police tell her to “go into hiding.”

Prosecutors said two separate criminal inquiries were under way, the first to track the authors of threats to kill and rape the teenager, the second to determine whether her comments amounted to the offence of hate speech.

The French authorities, under the ridiculous popinjay Emmanel Macron, are now so obsessed with kissing Muslim arse they apparently draw an absurd equivalence between murder and “hate speech.” This the background on the controversy, which has roiled France:

The girl, who is from the Isère area near Lyons was sharing a live video on Instagram on Saturday when she became embroiled in a row with another Instagram user, a young Muslim male who started making what she calls “heavy-handed propositions” online during her broadcast.

When she refused his sexual advances, he called her a dyke, a “dirty whore” and threatened her with rape. He then mentioned that he was a Muslim. She responded by saying that: “I hate religion. The Koran is . . . full of hate. There is only hate in it. Islam is a shit religion. That’s what I think.”

Regardless of whether you agree with Mila or think she overreacted to a heavy-handed sexual proposition, followed by being called a dyke and a whore, she has a right, in any free country, to say what she said without having to fear murder, rape or other felonious assault.

The Director of the French Council of Muslims, Abdallah Zekri alleged Mila had ‘reaped what she had sown’ earlier this week, but was forced into an embarrassing retraction following public outcry.

French justice minister, Nicole Belloubet, also came in for criticism after she failed to come to the teenager’s defence, and instead accused her of breaching a legal concept that does not exist, ‘freedom of conscience’.

When she was told that none exists in French Law, Ms Belloubet apologised for her words and professed they had been a ‘mistake’. We think she will find next time she has to face the voters her biggest mistake has been to side with a Muslim wannabe rapist. At the very leadt Belloubet should be confined to an institution fot the bewildered. WTF is freedom of conscience and how did Mila breach it?

Italy most likely member to quit the EU and demand independence after Brexit -shock poll

23:01 (11 pm) 31 January, the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union.

Throughout the day, the last on which the UK will be a member of the European Union, more than 7,000 people took part in an online, and completely meaningless except as a gesture, poll which asked which nation they thought would be next to leave the 27 member bloc.

As Boris Johnson prepared to address the nation at 10pm while Nigel Farage led a Brexit bash in Parlianment Square, outside the Houses of Parliament to help Britons celebrate new era in which our national traits of creativity, enterprise and determination will no longer be constrained by the activities of self – important French bureaucrats, militaristic Germans obsessed with rules and regulations and fat, drunken Belgian CHIMPS (Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations,) whose only talent is for being obstructive.

The result of the poll (which as I said is just for fun,) was that the Italians are most likely to next want out of the “corrupt club” of the EU, with Poland another high contender to demand an exit. Aa we have reported recently, rising political movements in Spain, Finland, Denmark and Netherlands are also gaining support for their campaigns to quite the wannabe EUSSR.

Of the 7,076 people who took part, 1,939 (28 percent) said Italy, 1,179 (17 percent) said Poland and 854 (13 percent) said the Netherlands.

The fourth-most likely country to vote Leave in an EU referendum is Hungary (691 votes) ahead of Denmark (670 votes), according to the poll.

Seven percent (538) of respondents said France would be the one to watch in the near future.

Today the EU says goodbye to Britain, tomorrow the world will say goobye to the corrupt, undemocratic, illiberal European Union.

Minister In Spain’s Socialist Government Claims Country Needs ‘Millions and Millions’ of Migrants

The Minister for Social Security, Inclusion, and Migration in Spain’s socialist interim government, has said the country, which already has phenomenally high unemployment, requires millions of new migrants from third world nations, similar to the hundreds of thousands of illiterate, unskilled professional benefits claimants who have flooded the country in recent years, to combat the forecasted demographic decline in the near future.

Escriva claimed the demographic projections for Spain are so bad that the country will require “eight or nine million people just to keep our working population at the same level”, and noted that other countries should be “prepared to integrate” large migrant populations, France Info reports.

“The demographic trajectories are there. It will happen, we will not escape it,” Escriva said during a meeting of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris on Thursday.

“We must be prepared to integrate into our societies, if we want to maintain our comfort levels, a certain number of additional migrants and our population will be more mixed,” he said and added: “We have to prepare societies for this. Explain to them why it is good for them, for their children, and for generations to come.”

He’s talking bollocks of course, mass immigration is a sacred cow policy for socialists throughout the European Union, but the EU’s ‘open doors’ policy, imposed on member states by Brussels is responsible for the social and economic problems being experienced by many EU member states.

European Commissioner for Migration Ylva Johansson, who also attended the meeting, went on to state that European Union citizens are worried that we cannot manage migration, that we cannot control it”.

“We must show that we control immigration,” she said and added that the EU could do more to deal with illegal immigrants. Johansson went on to state: “Those who have the right to stay, they are welcome, we must welcome them.”

While many establishment politicians, particularly on the left, have idiotically championed mass migration as a way to boost the economies of European countries by paying out more benefits to unemployable people, serious economic studies such as a 2016 report from the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) claimed mass migration was harmful to long term economic growth.

A University of Basel study released in 2018 agreed, concluding that in the short term mass migration can benefit the economy but in the long term migrants are a net loss for the state, rather than a contributor.
