20200417: Back to Work – MAGA ON! Kickin’ CoVid and Dems to the Curb!

That’s right – America is ready to go back to work! And now we have a Three Phase Plan! Will Texas be the first state? The peanut gallery is grumbling. This thread will still serve as all things related to CCP Flu, and the WH Daily Presser, but we’re beginning to focus more on GOOD NEWS, looking for green sprouts in our economy, evidence of “smashing the curve”, better results and wider distribution of therapeutics, and bigger than anticipated herd immunity.

As the days pass, we who were tagged as “conspiracy theorists” for looking deeper at the Wuhan Virology Lab are suddenly the smart ones…….. and the media has been proven as hoaxers once again. Are you ready? Let’s all say it together…..!

In yesterday’s presser, the President, VP, Birx, Fauci, and Redfield, rolled out the Back To Work Schedule. Overnight, the media will dissect the plan and tell us how horrible it is in the morning. I like it, because it puts the onus on the Governors to make the decision to open up (Can’t blame Orange Man AND Orange Man can criticize THEM). Sure, Dem Governors will stall, and they will look like fools. Okay, fine. Other states are already at Stage 2 (been decreasing for at least two weeks) and could be at Phase 3 by the end of the month. Pretty good, eh?

The memes continue (you guys have been terrific in adding to our collection), and thank you to whoever it was who resized my memes yesterday.

Press has been destroyed, now they have to complain to 50 Governors about when to open their states.
Why won’t Nancy and Chuck approve more $$ for the Small Business Fund?
God Bless the Truckers!

For our newcomers: The Q Tree community has been diligent in covering the threat of Coronavirus, COVID19, Wuhan FLU. We started accumulating information about this virus in mid-late January, in what became almost weekly threads. We’ve been weeks, if not months, ahead of MSM outlets to vet rumors and other medical papers, etc.

Primary Update Links:

In our past weekly threads, we assembled information on the following:

  • Primary update links. The dashboard from Johns Hopkins which counts “official” cases all over the world, the CDC, and WHO, and includes the links for our past threads.
  • Hard Data Medical Information- Explanation about testing, reliance on China for drugs, analysis of NE Journal of Medicine results and other published papers.
  • Vaccine and therapeutics (new/old drugs to alleviate symptoms) news and updates
  • Trump Administration response (the timeline and links to various agencies)
  • China Responses, timelines, research, attempt to cover actions, or secrecy in results discovered.
  • An aggregate of info/responses from other countries, listed by country.
  • Economic impact from around the world. A change in economic activity will indicate a “return to normal”.
  • Speculation/debunking on how the virus started
  • Media Bias, political response, and debunking section, like the article from AP News, overt bias from Politico, inflammatory headlines, etc.
  • Other medical info to boost immune system, herbal remedies, ways to keep your house clean and NOT spread the virus to others. Excellent information to incorporate into daily lifestyle.
  • Hard links for OTHER valuable sources/blogs and a brief sentence or two about what they provide
  • Other news items

    I don’t like the rallies when you’re sitting like you’re sitting – you lose a lot of flavor

    the opening up includes nursery schools, day cares and camps in upcoming phases so whatever people would normally be doing for summer will hopefully be available.

    President Trump again addressing his Liberate tweets – seems to be saying they were addressed to governors who have gone to far.

    1. Fauci committed to a study and says it will be made available. WE WANT THE WHOLE THING – every last bit of it. All the article in PRINT. All the supplemental information. ALL DATA. If they used programs, ALL THE PROGRAMS.

      We have other experts who have made arguments the other way. I suspect fake science, and I know EXACTLY what to look for.

      Personally, I believe that Fauci’s experts will ALL have CHYYYNNAA liabilities.

      We will take their study and dissect it. If their arguments are reasonable and stand up to the arguments of contrary experts, I will say so. But if not, then we have Fauci being SLICK again.

        1. I tell you, I’m listening to a video from T3 with that Judy Mikowitz gal, and I’m rapidly losing confidence in modern virology. I’ll explain more fully later, but the bottom line is that I had no idea how much voodoo is going on with viral attenuation, and that the “reverso aspects” of what they are doing to allegedly protect us, but in fact to CREATE human disease – ARE shockingly embodied in the very ACT of attenuation.

          It’s mind-boggling. They MAKE these viruses cross from animals to humans. They DO IT INTENTIONALLY.

          It’s a HUGE scam.

          Fauci needs to be confronted about attenuation as the act of GAIN OF FUNCTION. This is a KEY CONCEPT.

          To STUDY the virus in HUMAN CELLS, they MAKE IT RISKY TO HUMANS.

          A total WHAT THE FUCK.

          If Fauci and his experts are hiding the fact that the Chinese were culturing the bat virus in human cells, they are hiding a SCAM. It means that the Chinese did GAIN OF FUNCTION research, and MADE the bat virus risky.

          It’s a SCAM.

          Frankly, if this lady Mikowitz isn’t in front of Congress making Adam Schiff’s life a living hell, those hearings won’t be worth CRAP.

Or why all the work to get bat viruses to infect humans ?? And then create a vaccine when there was no problem until the labs created one? And the vaccines are GUESSWORK at best!!!!

            Why not do the research on boosting our immune systems naturally and education about sanitizing ourselves and our environments? Why let the mentally ill live in filth and rats on the streets, and spend billions on creating viruses??

          2. The kicker is M-kovitz was smeared and run out of her field due to exposing the cross-contamination. Her work verified it without a doubt. The story is chronicled in her book Plague. She knew how to talk about her findings, but had laryngitis right before the big conference presentation. She coached her young assistant in how to answer the edgy issue questions but he blew it so bad the entire process she was working through with other experts behind the scenes blew up in their faces.

            All the top line scientists –up until the conference– were working together on a task force to address the contamination issues. She had the political skills and would have moved it through the way it needed to go. But lost her voice. How it all came down makes me want to cry, actually.

          3. Clarification. The true reason her career was destroyed was her data on kids with autism showed a high level of XMRV infection. When questioned by the task force, she said, “we don’t know, but to be cautious the possibility of contaminated vaccines need to be looked at.” Politically careful answer.

            At the conference her assistant, after presenting that data, was asked, “are you saying vaccines cause autism?” and even though he had been coached in what to say he simply answered, “yes.”

            At which point the room exploded with outrage at their work.

          4. I posted this in a reply to Daughn yesterday but it seems to have gotten lost in the flood of discussion yesterday.

            Note: what Mikovitz found and published in 2015 uncovered this gain of function problem. She was gently working with other scientists to deal with it but it became political.

            They had to discredit her.

            The story is in her book, Plague, which I am reading during our “slow down” time.
            Excellent read. Not dry. Compelling. Reads like a suspense novel.

            Here’s the sum up…

            After her research finding were presented at a conference (story above in a reply to Wolf), the NIH Inc people wanted her scalp.

            In the same time frame, she uncovered improper financial stuff going on at the institute where she was doing her research. The founding couple were powerful in NV politics. They violated multiple protocols by demanding the grant money and research records remain with them. She said no. She was fired and walked out of the building on the spot.

            An assistant went in the next morning and found her office ransacked. Called her and she asked him to secure her research notebooks. He took them and without her knowledge hid them in her moving boxes which came with her back to Southern California.

            Funding couple pulled some strings and had her arrested WITHOUT A WARRANT in S. Cal. on a false charge of stealing Institute property. Took almost a week to get her out. Bail bondsman had never seen anything like it. Told her she must of angered some very powerful people.

            Even though the issue was resolved she was called back to Reno to deal with the charges there… just so the smear campaign by NIH could have a MUG SHOT for their HIT PIECE they needed to come out RIGHT BEFORE her paper was publicly released as an attempt to discredit her and her findings.

Schools, camps, daycares, etc., will open “soon”, in several weeks for some states as they go through the phases. Guess it depends on which states and how they progress through the metrics and phases.

      Reminds me of the saying, Take President Trump seriously but not always literally. And soon is relative. Soon, next month or so in comparison to what was being forecasted at one point.

    Hospital capacity was one of the key factors. Hospital admittances are a metric for reopening and watching for hot spots.

      It’s in the first 25 minutes – she explains both attenuation – where a strong virus is “calmed down” when it is repeatedly used to infect human cells more and more gently – but also how the same techniques can be used to get a virus to “spice up” (my words) and INFECT human cells where it did NOT before. And THAT is a FORM of “gain of function”.

      It is SUCH a scam. I think Fauci may be mincing words about the jump to avoid giving up the SCAM of gain of function. Yeah, it can BE MADE TO JUMP IN A LAB.

  13. Random sampling test shows coronavirus more widespread and less deadly than previously thought: Study
    by Andrew Mark Miller | April 17, 2020 03:02 PM

    A coronavirus antibody test conducted by Stanford University scientists concluded that the infection is both more common than previously thought and possesses a lower fatality rate than what current data suggest.

    “Our data imply that, by April 1 (three days prior to the end of our survey) between 48,000 and 81,000 people had been infected in Santa Clara County. The reported number of confirmed positive cases in the county on April 1 was 956, 50-85-fold lower than the number of infections predicted by this study,” their study reads.

    The study, which tested 3,330 people, adjusting for zip code, sex, and race/ethnicity, concludes that the prevalence of coronavirus antibodies in Santa Clara County, California, is more widespread than the number of confirmed cases indicates.

    “After adjusting for population and test performance characteristics, we estimate that the seroprevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in Santa Clara County is between 2.49% and 4.16%, with uncertainty bounds ranging from 1.80% (lower uncertainty bound of the lowest estimate), up to 5.70% (upper uncertainty bound of the highest estimate),” the study said.

    “Test performance characteristics are the most critical driver of this range, with lower estimates associated with data suggesting the test has a high sensitivity for identifying SARSCoV-2, and higher estimates resulting from data suggesting over 30% of positive cases are missed by the test.”

    “Coronavirus random sampling study from Stanford,” Fox News’s Lisa Boothe said on Twitter in response to the study. “They found the infection is 50-85 x more common than previously thought & fatality rate accordingly 50-85 x lower than the crude numbers would suggest.”

    The study adds that “the most important implication of these findings is that the number of infections is much greater than the reported number of cases.”

    Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, one of the contributors to the study, wrote an opinion article in March questioning the models showing that millions of people in the United States would die from the virus and pointed out that more testing is needed to determine the fatality rate.

    “Fear of Covid-19 is based on its high estimated case fatality rate — 2% to 4% of people with confirmed Covid-19 have died, according to the World Health Organization and others,” he wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “So if 100 million Americans ultimately get the disease, two million to four million could die. We believe that estimate is deeply flawed. The true fatality rate is the portion of those infected who die, not the deaths from identified positive cases.”

    “The main message my colleagues and I want to get across is that the facts to date are consistent with a tremendous range of uncertainty regarding the fatality rate from COVID-19,” Bhattacharya told the Washington Examiner in March. “We desperately need a population-representative estimate of the seroprevalence of the disease so we can reduce that uncertainty and make better policy on the basis of our improved knowledge. Such a study would not be too expensive and is feasible to run immediately.”

    It was reported earlier this month that doctors believe the virus was present in California as early as December.

    “When public health [officials] tried to track down the start of the disease … we weren’t able to find, specifically, a contact,” Santa Clara County Executive Dr. Jeff Smith said. “That means the virus is in the community already — not, as was suspected by the CDC, as only in China and being spread from contact with China.”

      I think this number is WAY LOW. P. rex was thinking WAY more than 3% – more like 50% or 60%. I was originally thinking 10%. The Chicago hospital was a highly selected group (all people seeking tests), but they got 50% or 60% showing antibodies.

      3% is still FAUCI NARRATIVE.

      We need MORE and BETTER samples. And I would trust them more if somebody I trusted DID THEM.

    DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – A Dallas County order requiring face coverings won’t be punishable by law if violated following a heated emergency meeting of the Commissioners Court on Friday.

    Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is requiring that face coverings be worn in all Dallas County stores and businesses. The order initially allowed for fines and possible jail time if violated, but Jenkins said that wouldn’t be enforced. The mixed messages caused some confusion among county leaders and residents.

    “We made it explicitly clear that the order wouldn’t be enforced by arrests or tickets,” Jenkins told Commissioners.

    Judge Jenkins said during a Thursday press conference that it wasn’t likely people would be fined for violating the order, but Commissioner J.J. Koch argued that words weren’t enough.

    “It’s not in the order so it’s not lawful,” said Koch. “It’s not in the lawful order.”

    Commissioners complained that they did not have time to give feedback on the order but Judge Jenkins insisted they were sent an email about it 24 hours before it was announced. The court voted earlier this month require Jenkins to give notice before a change was made. A vote is also required by the court to extend the “Safer at Home” order beyond April 30. A vote is not required for revisions.

    However, a motion was made Friday to amend the “face covering” order. Following a 3-2 vote, the order now clarifies that there will be no legal punishment if the order is violated. Commissioners also voted to reopen craft stores to allow people to buy materials to make face coverings.

    The order takes effect Saturday morning.

  16. Something interesting that I have noticed…

    We live over a mile away from Interstate I-40, and at night we can hear the distant hum of traffic on I-40.
    More like a ‘roar’ than a hum, though.

    In late March, I noticed that it was…quiet.
    It was stunning how quiet.
    It was like traffic had fallen off a cliff…and in the daytime, we could see how empty it was from the overpass that we use on a regular basis.

    Last night I noticed that the ‘hum’ was back.
    Big rig truck traffic has greatly increased!
    This is a good indicator…since I-40 is a major East-West trucking route.

    So hopefully, we will see more Re-Stocking going on, in the stores around the country.

    1. Ours too, noticed the same thing. Last month it was eerily quiet night and day but about a week ago the traffic has picked back up. The freeway that we can hear is mainly commuter use so I don’t know why it’s almost loud-normal because we’re still in lockdown.

  17. For our science experts. Is this true?

    1. Wormwood and mugwort, related herbs, DO have anti-malarial properties.

      And I grow BOTH in my yard!

      However, boiling is NOT the way to use the wormwood. According to Bartram’s Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, wormwood should be infused overnight in COLD water, and drunk in the morning. Heat damages the plant’s properties. Mugwort is steeped in boiling water, like you make tea.

      You didn’t need a scientist, you needed an herbalist. 😉

      1. Thank you, Aubergine! 🙂 I’m wondering if these could actually be a poor man’s cure for the virus if HCQ continues to be unavailable for anyone who isn’t in a hospital.

        1. Well, I am currently drinking 16 ounces of tonic water (for the quinine) and taking 25 mg of zinc daily, along with vitamin C, and B-complex. I have dried wormwood and mugwort on hand in case I get sick and they refuse to treat me with HCQ.

          I want to be sure to live so I can sue the ass off whomever denies me my “Right to Try.”

    2. I have a friend that recently called to tell me she’d had extremely high liver enzymes after an alternative doctor had her on high doses of arteminisin for months without doing any liver tests. Ended up hospitalized. Not saying don’t use herbs. Saying, make sure your detox pathways are working BEFORE you try anti-microbial treatments at home.

        Project SCoPEx: Bill Gates pursuing a plan to carry out planetary GENOCIDE under the guise of halting “climate change”
        09/06/2019 / By Mike Adams

        The SCoPEx project seeks to replicate the effects of an apocalyptic volcano disaster such as the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, which ejected so much particulate matter into the atmosphere that it produced what was called, “the year without a summer.” Food crops failed across the planet, leading to mass starvation and disease. This is what Bill Gates and today’s mad scientists are working to replicate through artificial means. And yes, it’s all about unleashing mass starvation, genocide and depopulation on a global scale.


        1816: The year with a summer.

        Good read:

        The Year Without Winter?
        There is precedent for such things.
        Matthew Hennessey
        December 17, 2015

        On April 5, 1815, Indonesia’s volcanic Mount Tambora awoke from a centuries-long slumber. Over the course of several days, repeated thunderous explosions from the 14,000-foot mountain hurled massive amounts of molten rock, ash, and dust into the sky above the island of Sumbawa. The blasts were so intense that British naval officers hundreds of miles away presumed a mighty battle was underway. Ten thousand people in the village of Tambora were killed instantly. Tens of thousands more on Sumbawa and surrounding islands ultimately died from starvation. On April 10, a mighty final explosion tore the top off Tambora and triggered a tsunami. An ash cloud of unprecedented size rose from the site of the eruption, blotting out the sun and causing temperatures in the region to plummet. Along with the ash cloud, Tambora had belched an estimated 55 million tons of fine sulfur particles and sulfur-dioxide gas into the stratosphere.

        As William and Nicholas Klingaman describe in their 2013 book The Year Without Summer, when Tambora’s sulfur-dioxide gas reached the stratosphere, it mixed with plentiful hydroxide gas in a chemical reaction that created as much as 100 million tons of sulfuric acid. Condensing into minute droplets, the acid became aerosolized and formed a massive cloud. Hitching a ride on the mighty jet stream, the cloud began spreading. “By the winter of 1815,” write the Klingamans, “the nearly invisible veil of ash covered the globe, reflecting sunlight, cooling temperatures, and wreaking havoc on weather patterns.”

        News of the colossal eruption traveled painfully slow in the pre-telegraphic era. The world was left to wonder about the strange weather over the ensuing months. Londoners gaped in awe at the unmatched beauty of that summer’s sunsets, unaware that the glorious hues and glowing evenings were likely caused by the Tambora cloud’s stratospheric dispersion of the sun’s rays. That winter, blizzards dumped red- and brown-colored snow on the mountains of Europe.

        In the United States, the summer of 1816 announced itself as truly unusual on June 7. In the heavily populated northeast, temperatures hovered around freezing all day. In Ohio and Pennsylvania, budding fruit trees succumbed to the frost. At higher elevations in New York State, snow covered the ground. Migratory birds fell dead. Recently shorn sheep died when they could find no forage on the frozen ground.

        Weird weather persisted all summer and into the early fall. High winds kept the air dry. Drought caused wells to fail, streams to dry up, and wildfires to rage. August felt more like October, with freezing temps and heavy frost killing crops from Maine to South Carolina. Farms failed across New England, leading many who relied on the land for a living to pick up and move west.
