So what?

The hospital where I work was once down to only two COVID patients. The specialized COVID floor was shut down and reduced to a single wing weeks ago. Then the wing was reduced to a single hallway. Two weeks ago, there was not even a hallway- there were only two rooms with COVID patients. The hospital relaxed many COVID protocols- where we were once testing every single patient for COVID no matter why they were being seen, patients were being tested for COVID only if they had symptoms. It seemed that COVID was over.

When I last left work yesterday evening, there were more than thirty COVID patients. What caused the big change? Well for starters, the hospital began testing every patient again. Many patients who are COVID positive are there for other reasons and have no COVID symptoms. Many, but not all.

In the ICU, more than half of the patients there are COVID patients. We had a COVID fatality on Saturday. Every ICU patient with COVID is unvaccinated, and most of the other COVID positive patients are as well.

So what?

If people choose to be unvaccinated, that is their choice. I have chosen to get the vaccine. If someone else reviews the facts and doesn’t want it, that is up to them. What they choose doesn’t affect you.

Blinding speed

It took 14 months to go from “Fourteen days to Flatten the Curve” to the government going door to door demanding to see your papers. If someone in July of 2019 had told you that all of this was going to happen within the next two years, what would you have said to them?

Figures don’t lie

but liars figure, as the old adage goes. It seems that the number of COVID cases is WAY down. Why is that? The vaccine? Nope. The cycle threshold.

Just before the election, the Ct was 40.

An hour after the inauguration, the CDC changed the Ct to 30, which reduced the number of positive test results by 68%.

Then on May 4 it was reduced for any test of a vaccinated individual to 28. This will mean that positives will be lower for anyone vaccinated. Along with that, asymptomatic or mild infections will no longer be recorded as “COVID cases.”

One year ago, nearly to the day, I proposed that COVID was being used to influence the election. I also predicted that COVID would disappear right after the inauguration. I almost nailed it.

On a side note, my hospital has four COVID patients being cared for by a single nurse. The “COVID hall” has 28 rooms with a possible capacity of 56 patients at double occupancy. There are FOUR patients in there.

Why stop there?

The Biden administration is now teaming with social media dating sites to release health information to others who view your dating profile. HIPAA be damned, if you have received the COVID vaccine, you can get a token added to your social media page that certifies your vaccine status.

Why stop there? Let’s also get:

  • a token for HIV. If you have tested negative for HIV in the past 90 days, you should be able to get a token for that. It could say “Go ahead, you can suck it, its disease free.”
  • or how about tokens for people who are here legally? A sticker that says “My back is dry.”

Perhaps we can make people without the vaccine wear something so that everyone knows that they are not safe. Here is the first design:

Are those offensive? Of course they are, and so is one for the vaccine.

Evolving science

There was a time when humans believed that the Earth was flat, and anyone who approached the “ends of the Earth” would fall off. Then science proved it was round.

At that point, it was believed that everything in the Universe revolved around the Earth. The Earth, it was believed, was the center of all creation and anyone who believed differently was put to death for heresy.

And so on. Evolving science is a misnomer. Science evolves, facts do not. You see, all science is, is man’s attempt to describe and understand the natural world by observing phenomenon. If the description fits the observed conditions, it becomes a confirmed theory. As soon as a theory is observed to NOT fit the conditions, it is either modified or discarded. That is what we mean by “evolving science.”

So when Doctor Fauci tells you that you no longer need to wear a mask if you have been vaccinated because “science has evolved” what he is really telling you is that the proposed explanation of the facts that he and his colleagues came up with was incorrect. In other words, science hasn’t evolved, science was WRONG.

  • When Fauci and the CDC said that only medical professionals should wear masks, he was wrong.
  • When Fauci and the CDC said that everyone should wear masks, he was wrong.
  • When Fauci and the CDC said that everyone should wear two masks, he was wrong.
  • and on and on…

My question becomes: “When has Doctor Fauci ever been right?”

You know that your career is nearly over when even the leftists at SNL are making fun of you:


I saw this article about COVID hospitals seeing more serious cases.

My hospital had a COVID floor. They didn’t have enough patients, so they reduced it to one wing of a single floor. That was no longer occupied enough, so they reduced it to a single hallway of a single wing. Now there are now only 6 COVID patients in my hospital.

I can do math. The article linked above says that the B.1.1.7 strain has 16,275 active infections. It also, the article claims, is the dominant strain and represents 26% of all active COVID cases. Doing a bit of math, that works out to 62,596 cases. So they are saying that there are under 63,000 COVID cases nationwide.

That hardly sounds like the big emergency they are claiming. What tells me they are full of crap is the same article claiming that there are 64,000 new cases each day. The math doesn’t support that.

Follow the science

A comment on my COVID post from the 17th makes me want to explain some science so we can all understand why the COVID rates are dropping. When a PCR test is done, the lab is looking for the genetic material of the specific organism that is being tested for. The test detects the presence of a virus if you are infected at the time of the test. The test could also detect fragments of virus even after you are no longer infected. The PCR test is the “gold standard” test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it’s the most accurate and reliable test. That, however, doesn’t mean that the PCR test can’t be fiddled with.

For those of you who have knowledge on this subject, you will see that I am greatly simplifying this material. Please bear with me and understand that I am trying to make a complex subject easy to understand.

When any lab test is done, there is a threshold value that is set, so that any quantity that is detected above that value is indicative of a “positive” result. In order for a PCR test to detect genetic material, the levels of genetic material in the sample must be “amplified” to make small amounts of material detectable, sort of like turning up the “gain” on an amplifier.

Just like in an amplifier, when you turn up the gain, the background noise gets amplified as well as the information that you are looking for. If you turn it up high enough, you get a “positive” result even though the amounts of genetic material are so small that the person isn’t able to infect anyone, and doesn’t even have symptoms.

This amplification is called Cycle Threshold. Cycle threshold (Ct or Cq) is the number of times (cycles) a sample has to be amplified before the genetic material of the virus can be detected. A low Ct value indicates a strong viral load because it took less amplification to detect the virus. A high Ct value indicates a weak viral load because the sample had to be amplified many more cycles to detect it.

So why does this matter? It means our government has been using the rise in the number of PCR positives to influence and determine policy when “the science” suggests that using PCR positives to determine how the pandemic is advancing is impossible without clinical context. What’s worse, is these PCR tests are hyper sensitive because they record positive results for samples that have a cycle threshold of 35 to 40.

In fact, most of the high COVID case levels were due to the Ct being set at a very high level, to the point that most of the signal was noise. Then on January 20, an hour after Biden was sworn in, the WHO sent out a memo telling labs to use a much lower Ct.

So surprise, surprise, now COVID infections are down 68% from December. Joe Biden is a miracle worker and has fixed all of the damage caused by the “former occupant” as Joe likes to refer to him.
