    Whitney Webb and Raul Diego owe me royalty fees on copyright infringement.

    They do miss the opportunity to accurately name at least one phenomenon. Rather than a dozen word explication, they should have used one word to described DOJ’s and FBI’s destruction of Ivins.
    Its curious they avoided the term that most ppl associate with driving another person crazy, Gaslighting.

    Here’s the phrase used by Webb and Diego in their excellent essay: “…DOJ and FBI had “crafted an elaborate perception management campaign to bolster their assertion of Ivins’ guilt” 

    That, my fellow readers is the definition of Gangstalking.

    The targeted person’s mere act of resisting either gaslighting or gangstalking is used as confirmation of the target’s guilt or madness.

    @ oxymoron

    Thanks.

    The hospitals, too, are complicit in this debacle through piss poor preparation while concentrating on concierge services for the affluent and over past several years isolating physicians when those doctor’s criticisms hit too close to the target. And now, Congress as part of the $2 trillion Covid-19 Rescue package earmarked $100 billion dollars to improve medical readiness and treatment capability without placing the most important restriction on the package. Restrict hospital executives from being financially compensated out of these federal dollars, penalize states, medical boards and corporations for rewarding these people and provide strength to the enforcement of these proposed restrictions.

    And literally as I wrote the DCA California acted their governor’s order. Who wants to bet David A. Tam is grandfathered in permanently once the smoke, er, I mean virus clears?

    DCA Impacts of Executive Order N-39-20

    On March 30, 2020 Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-39-20, authorizing the Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) to waive any of the professional licensing requirements relating to healing arts licensees in Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code, and any accompanying regulations. This includes, but is not limited to, the examination, education, experience, and training requirements necessary to obtain and maintain licensure, and requirements governing the practice and permissible activities for licensees

    A few thoughts in no particular order:

    ***You don’t impose, enforce or accelerate economic sanctions on other countries when its people are suffering the worldwide consequences of pandemic disease. Unless, of course, you are at War and then you drop Fat Man and Little Boy on two cities.

    ***You don”t hand over control of the FED and Treasury Department to a private entity, BlackRock unless your country is the vanquished foe in this contest.

    ***Nowhere in Nelson’s Pediatrics, Harrison’s or Cecil’s Internal Medicine and Sabiston’s Surgery textbooks does it say fork over $4.5 trillion dollars to banks and assorted economic elite as the first, second or last strike in a epidemiological war on a pandemic illness. Yet, here we are.

    ***John Paul Jones, Alfred Thayer Mahan and Arleigh Burke never advised the likes who command a United States aircraft to publicly surrender his ship and enlisted crew to a pandemic virus. Shit happens.

    ***You don’t place a failed former medical student who can’t pass either the National Boards or Pediatrics Boards in charge of a state’s larget healthcare system just because you confused Navy Medicine’s social promotion of him with success. But hey, sour grapes have a certain sound and taste.
    Unless the “Powers That Be” expect failure.

    ***You don’t isolate people from each other unless you want to remove nonverbal expressions and body language from the communication equation. They constructed a modern Tower of Babel almost with the sweep of a hand.

    ***In the enormous open air psychiatric ward they’ve constructed, will the numbers of the newly impoverished outnumber COVID-19 deaths 10-to-1 or 100-to-1 or will we just add those people to the coronavirus Worldometer?

    ***Unless of course, the plan is and always was planned obsolescence, but no longer at a snail’s pace. After all, human beings adapt given enough time as tough SOBs are wont to do.

However, all of us have been conditioned to placidly accept rentiers issuing eviction notices and employers in the At Will Workplace terminating employees for any reason or no good reason at all.

    No doubt about your assertion regarding physician trustworthiness, but you’re talking about a 4 to 6% load of venal-as-hell sociopaths. Use Hervey Cleckley’s “The Mask of Sanity” for historical reference.
    Yet, I have not met a lawyer, nurse, MBA, or nonphysician administrator that was an adequate substitute for physician leadership in medicine.
    However, the nonphysician leaders sure as hell know how to absorb credit, deflect/coverup blame and publicly rationalize their enormous compensation.

    Of course the learned reader understands the CDC flu numbers are derived from disease/statistical modeling. In 35 years as a physician, I recall only a single time when viral cultures were obtained for influenza A. However, that holds true for most viral diseases, H.zoster ophthalmicus and HSV keratitis come to mind immediately where cultures are never obtained. Morphology seals the diagnosis.

    Dr. D et al (since my post was lost on the 50% mortality of ARDS) will confirm that sepsis, ARDS, ALI, DIC and multiple organ system failure are common causes of death in the individual SARS, MERS, COVID-19, flu, and community acquired pneumonia cases.

    No doubt the counting “process” has been used to manipulate public sentiment

    Some things are already known instead of an author presenting their discovery of ARDS as a really really bad thing. Its unnerving to see how quickly a coronavirus or influenza victim goes down hill when they develop Gram negative sepsis associated with a Klebsiella pneumoniae superinfection.

    Sure.
    CFTC.gov just bailed out a supposedly solvent Capital One. Not one single American’s credit card, underwater mortgage, auto loan or student loan debt was forgiven, but Capital One gets bailed out by a .GOV
    Now tell me how coronavirus exolains this financial chicanery in the context of Overnight REPO, QE 3 or 4 (I lost count), and last week’s FED rescue totaling $4.5 trillion dollars?
    Just who are these leaders saving and, as Dr. D said, why are you making excuses for them while we all are subjected to austerity and social isolation?

    CDC statistics for 2017-18 U.S flu season

    **** 45 million illnesses

    **** 810,000 hospitalizations

    **** 61,000 deaths

    Bonus question: How many years of medical school, internship and residency are required to enter optometry; 2, 3, 4 or 7 years?

    Ya gotta pay attention to Dr. D and his knowledge of probability and statistics applied to medicine.

    So what about 100,000.
    Here’s the 2018-19 Flu season data:
    *** symptomatic illness – 35,520,883
    ***medical visits- 16,520,350
    ***hospitalizations- 490,561
    ***deaths- 34,157

    In the 2017-18 Flu season the numbers were 30% to 75% higher in each category.

    There was no drama back then, just one and two years ago, except they closed the ER and inpatient wards to additional admissions. And none of those hospital administrators CEO, general counsel, one RN, one finance officer and 2 MDs all making $550,000 to $1.2 million per annum prepared the medical center for this future and comparatively minor disaster.

    I already related my personal (medicine calls it anecdotal) experience with medical center closure to admissions and a respiratory illness cluster in my clinic during a concurrent major hospital demolition, renovation and $75 million dollar construction project.

    That situation has yet to be investigated for potential causes such influenza virus, RSV respiratory synctitial virus, aspergillus released from demolition or a pneumoconiosis from non-biological material released from demolition.

    @ lasttwo

    “…America sat idle.” I don’t know, but sounds like broad distribution victim blaming. Obviously bad things don’t happen to a Chosen people. Most societies possess a promotional mythology for storytelling.

    I do see one flaw in your logic. Even without the vaunted leadership from within the federal government’s office of pandemic preparedness, what was preventing the private sector, noteworthy for its indefatigable initiative and seminal brilliance, from carrying out the necessary work as a duty to the larger society from which it derives profit?

    Bosco, no argument from me.

    Sept 2001, they/we weaponized the law, with the AUMF, Patriot Act, and abusive prosecution of any swarthy, disloyal appearing schmuck who got in our way. Here we go again with Maduro and martial not-martial law.

    Sept 2001, they/we weaponized Medicine. Torture became a higher moral & ethical calling to justice in defense of the nation than the Hippocratic oath and Geneva protections. And we paid Mitchell and Jessen Psych Associates $81 million to torture folk under the Gina Haspel’s leadership. Now , medically, we’re all commanded to hide in our houses.

    Sept 2001 we/they weaponized Anthrax but it only ruined a few lives without causing the Herd to panic. Today we just have at least 5 pathological COVID-19 strains and the herd better panic or else we’re gonna lose the remnants of the lives which were destroyed by economic austerity over the past 12-19 years .

    They turned friend into foe. They turned family against each other. They pathologized generosity and gift giving. In my life, they turned colleague against colleague, inverted the chain of command, and turned groom against best man. They celebrated venality and competition over competency and ethical comportment.

    Here’s a guess.

    You know, bombs, bullets and missiles at Venezuela (DOJ just indicted Nicolas Maduro et al for, get this, behaving as a criminal enterprise in support of drug traffickers and terrorists), Iran, Russia or China in no particular order.

    Doesn’t “behaving as a criminal enterprise in support of drug traffickers and terrorists” sound like a description of the CIA or the entire MIC as Maj. Danny Sjursen opined in his recent essay at Antiwar.com

    I have a personal anecdote about a poor kid from California, ambitious as hell, who lived across the hallway in college. Above average student and future naval aviator. His story is one of what an individual will do once he/she has access or proximity to the reigns of power. What you do is intimidate then fire the whistleblower and Goldman monitor, Carmen Segara, to curry favor favor with Geithner your boss.
