AS per the (yesteryear and recent) revealingly infamous statement by totalitarian-bent Rahm Emanuel (and others of like-mind), that is, HUSSEIN Obama’s henchman and “play-mate”, “Never allow a good crisis go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do the things you once thought were impossible”, covid-19 seamlessly dovetailed into the heist of the century; the electoral steal! Incontestably. Beyond brazen, too.
RESULTANT, even when globally respected John Hopkins University evidenced the graphic truth, well, the fascists in charge of the deep-state remain undaunted. Unfazed. Doubled-down.
KNOW this: this wildly dangerous state of national (and international) affairs couldn’t come to pass without the heavy-lifting and threats extending across every spectrum and deviation — even those who are normally considered the least threatening type of folks, the so-called geeks! Indeed, data/mathematics professionals, for heaven’s sake, have fallen victim to the totalitarian mobs — now forced to “retract” their findings, if they have any semblance of hope to remain afoul of cancel culture!
ONTO the latest “retractors”…..

Conventional wisdom is that COVID-19 has caused thousands of deaths in the United States and nearly 1.5 million worldwide. This perception has been directly challenged by a study published by Johns Hopkins University on November 22.
Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins University, critically analyzed the impact that COVID-19 had on U.S. deaths. According to Briand, the impact of COVID-19 on deaths in the United States can be fully understood by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the country.
According to the study, “in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.”
Wait, what? Really?
That’s what it says. And, it should come as no surprise that the study was deleted within days.
Luckily, a back-up copy remains on The Wayback Machine, and we can still read the study.
So, how exactly did the study conclude that COVID-19 has had “relatively no effect on deaths”? Here’s how the study made this determination:
After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September, which includes the period from before COVID-19 was detected in the U.S. to after infection rates soared.
Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.
According to Briand, “The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals.”
Briand’s analysis found that the range of deaths amongst the older population has remained within the range of past years.
So, if COVID-19 has actually had no significant impact on U.S. deaths, why does it not appear that way?
To answer that question, Briand shifted her focus to the deaths per causes ranging from 2014 to 2020. There is a sudden increase in deaths in 2020 due to COVID-19. This is no surprise because COVID-19 emerged in the U.S. in early 2020, and thus COVID-19-related deaths increased drastically afterward.
