How Could the CDC Make That Mistake?’

by Alexis C. Madrigal and Robinson Meyer


The government’s disease-fighting agency is conflating viral and antibody tests, compromising a few crucial metrics that governors depend on to reopen their economies. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, and other states are doing the same.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is conflating the results of two different types of coronavirus tests, distorting several important metrics and providing the country with an inaccurate picture of the state of the pandemic. We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus infections with test results that measure whether someone has ever had the virus. The upshot is that the government’s disease-fighting agency is overstating the country’s ability to test people who are sick with COVID-19. The agency confirmed to The Atlantic on Wednesday that it is mixing the results of viral and antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.




City of Branson contemplates Draconian Face Mask Ordinance with 90 days in Jail.(Update)

by Allen Williams

Lest there be any sanctuary to escape Covid-19 restrictions the city of Branson, MO vacation center of America is now the center of a draconian face mask ordinance No. 5837 amounting to 3 months incarceration. From the July 16th, 2020 meeting record, listen to person after person's strong objections to this policy including one young woman's account of masks violating OSHA standards starting at about time 2:15. First speaker a virologist/Pastor begins at 1:27:

Update 8/2/2020:

The face mask ordinance passed in the July 28, 2020 special session of the Branson Commissars. The amendment is a PERMANENT addition to the city's bylaws; most of the public's comments were ignored. The mask requirement is in effect until August 30th, 2020 after which a simple alderman vote extends it for another 30 days. Since the law can impose a 3 month jail sentence for not wearing a mask, it is expected that the mask requirement will be continuously extended past November. If you have a preexisting health condition as one of the ladies who commented at the 7/28 public hearings does, the police will not listen to your objections, instead you will be TICKETED and then you can tell it to the Branson court for $31.50 court costs minimum. There is nothing mentioned in the ordinance about having a document other than from a medical practitioner stating that you should not wear a mask. But my guess is you won't be able to just show it to the cop, you'll have to present it in court as often as the cops ticket you. As I stated earlier, cities are always looking for new revenue sources. Also the city is encouraging residents to 'rat' on their fellow Americans for not wearing a mask, a common procedure of the East German STACI.



One of the early speakers during the public response time, beginning at time 1:40: Rep candidate Brian Sykes says people will not come back to Branson and businesses stand to lose $100,000. Compares the ordinance to what was done in Germany.

At time 1:46, another Pastor discusses the communist template being overlaid on American Society using fear of the Covid-19 pandemic. The CDC has played with the numbers, cites how govt is eroding freedom year by year.

At about time 2:09 local area Newspaper editor speaks concerning the reliability of Govt data being found untrustworthy. Cites individual who was falsely told he was covid-19 positive and sent to the hospital and there DIED from a lung punctured by a ventilator.

Christina Smith at time 2:15 talks about ideological subversion from communism. Notes that No END DATE on the Branson ORDINANCE exists. Also discusses OSHA standards on breathable oxygen. Shortness of oxygen creates hypercapnia which suppresses the immune system, lowers O2 levels causing calcification of arteries and triggers pulmonary issues.

Next lady speaker beginning at time 2:30 tells the Branson Commissars that they will be thrown out if they approve the mask ordinance. Bravo!

July 28, 2020 will see the 2nd attempt by the Branson Board of Commissars to pass this draconian ordinance.
