There have now been 12,517 excess non-Covid deaths registered in England and Wales in the 14 weeks since April 23rd, according to the latest official data from the Office for National Statistics, released on Tuesday.
In the week ending July 29th, the most recent week for which data are available, 11,013 deaths were registered in England and Wales, which is 1,678 (18%) above the five-year average for the week. Of these, 810 mentioned COVID-19 on the death certificate as a contributory cause and 531 mentioned COVID-19 as underlying cause, leaving 1,147 deaths from a different underlying cause. Note that this was the week following the brief but intense heatwave (with recorded temperatures topping 40°C for the first time in some areas), so some of these will be heatwave deaths, as will many of the additional Covid deaths (being people who happened to have Covid at the time).
At the Daily Sceptic we have been following what appears to be a correlation between the spring fourth dose booster rollout among over-75s in England and a wave of now over 12,500 non-Covid excess deaths that are currently unexplained (see chart below).
If all of these deaths were a result of the spring boosters (of which 4,201,990 have been delivered up to July 29th) it would be a rate of one every 336 doses… We saw last week that these U.K. data are broadly in line with data from the Netherlands, as highlighted by leading vaccine scientist Dr. Theo Schetters…
More generally, excess non-Covid deaths have remained at a high level as the spring vaccination campaign has wound down, meaning the close correlation has not continued. This may be an indication of ongoing vaccine injury, perhaps in conjunction with injury from previous Covid infection, or of the operation of another cause which has not yet been identified.
As noted in previous weeks, the cause of the deaths appears to be largely related to diseases of the heart and blood vessels…The continued high level of excess deaths is unexpected as, following the 144,000 excess deaths of the last two and a half years, we would have anticipated a period of lower than average deaths. Oddly, the Government has shown no interest in investigating this…
Oxford Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine Dr. Carl Heneghan and his colleague Dr. Tom Jefferson have now joined the call for the Government to investigate these thousands of unexplained excess deaths, noting “we are not aware that the causes for the variations identified have been investigated, nor that there is a recognised threshold to trigger such an investigation”…
Things are about to get interesting. MAGA is alive and well, much more so than I would have thought, or would have wanted. It is possible to get over the hump and move on. On the other side, hatred for Trump has not receded, at all. And now, the FBI has conducted a raid on the residence of a former President. I don’t need to know any of the details to know that this is completely unprecedented.
Last week in Arizona, the Trump-endorced candidates swept the GOP primaries. I voted for one of them, Kari Lake, for Governor. But the other offices had much better non-Trump candidates. Not anti-Trump RINOs, mind you, just not endorsed by Trump. They all lost.
There is something else. Lake ran a nearly one-issue campaign: Stolen Election. If there is anything that scares the other side, it’s knowing that we know. They know that despite a 24/7 fake news flood of “unfounded claims of election fraud,” that many citizens know the truth, and we won’t ever forget. So now Lake will go against Katie Hobbs, who was the Secretary of State in 2020, the one who vowed to “count every vote.”
Not sure where all of this is going. But this article below from a few weeks ago has stuck with me. The J6 show trial, the J6 illegal detentions and outrageous sentences, the ongoing demonization of anyone who saw Trump as the lesser evil, or who thought he might have been able to Drain the Swamp or to Lock Her Up… our enemies won’t forget either, so don’t be surprised if they come for you next.
‘Are you now, or have you ever been, a supporter of Donald Trump’
By Dennis Lund
As the Pelosi-Thompson-Cheney circus rolls on in D.C., signals are given that the Democrats have their sights set on more than just the former president.
Obviously, the primary purpose of the pseudo-hearing is twofold: Destroy Trump and keep January Sixth alive, until November.
Recently retired judge Michael Luttig said the quiet part out loud:
Donald Trump and his allies and supporters are still a clear and present danger to American democracy.
The comment harkens back to the McCarthy era hearings and guilt by association. Once a communist always a communist has now turned to ‘Once a Trumper, always a Trumper.’
We can only imagine what lies ahead.
Seventy-four million Americans, committed no crime in voting for Trump, but are now considered to be a threat the country, just as were the McCarthy era communists.
That raises the question; what to do with these 74 million reprobates?
The treatment of the Jan 6ers in D.C. confirms that the Democrats are not interested in following standard legal procedures. Solitary confinement, horrible food, beatings, no showers or shaves, rarely allowed outside, overflowing toilets, cockroaches, no bail, and rare lawyer visits are deemed to be acceptable treatment.
After one considers what was done to President Trump and others, what the Democrats are doing is not unexpected. So, what will be done to those the Democrats see, not as an opposition, but as enemies of the Democrat State?
Recognize that Jan Sixer defendants, such as Thomas Sibick, are given preferential treatment, while awaiting trial or sentencing, after denouncing their sin of political support for President Trump.
Luttig’s comment, declaring that all who support Trump are in fact a threat to the nation, now lowers the bar to a new level. Seventy-four million is too large a number of people to jail and torture, as is apparently preferred…
Econ 101 teaches us that price is driven by supply and demand. If supply is short and demand is high, prices are high. Do you know that old saying, put your money where your mouth is? People don’t spend their money on things they don’t believe in. Said another way, people don’t pay millions of dollars for something they believe will be worthless in a few years.
If global warming is real, and everyone really really believes it is real, a tiny shack on the beach does not cost $2.2MM. A tiny shack on the beach is literally worthless, or at most, it’s only worth whatever value the buyer places on the few short summers he may have the use of it, before it and the whole town is underwater.
Oh, BTW this example is a cheaper one, and not even close to being on the beach, actually:
If everyone really believes global warming is real, this entire town is worthless. People would be selling for pennies on the dollar to get out now. If the elites really believed their Teslas were saving the world, Avalon would be a ghost town.
Keep this in mind when you read that the $740B “Inflation Reduction Act” making its way through Congress this week includes $369B to “fight climate change.” HERE.
That’s your money. They really hate you.
What beachfront property says about global warming
Global warming is a crisis no one believes in. At least, most people don’t believe in it. The market shows us that. More technically, people voting in the mortgage market with their money on balance do not believe in global warming.
Sure, I could have started this by pointing out, as many other observers have, that warmists ex-president Barack Obama and billionaire Bill Gates have recently bought low-lying beach properties. That certainly seems in conflict with what they claim to believe about global warming and rising sea levels. But Obama and Gates are human beings. We human being are often inconsistent. We sometimes support USC football and UCLA basketball. Some of us root for both the New York Yankees and the Dallas Cowboys. We sometime drink more than we know is good for us.
Another thing that is true about President Obama and Mr. Gates is they are not smarter and are not able to process more information than the rest of us who make up the market. As of now, interest rates on loans for beachfront properties are no higher than interest rates for loans on other properties, comparing first homes to first homes and vacation homes to vacation homes. Thus, all of us — i.e., the market — are not concerned that global warming will affect beachfront property values negatively in the next 30 years…
MONKEYPOX update: FINALLY, CDC tells GAY & Bisexual community what it should have said 3 months ago, namely NO sex & LIMIT number of partners etc. How come so late CDC? How come?
“Among the updates are suggestions that people “take a temporary break” from sexual activity until considered vaccinated; limit their number of sexual partners; avoid “spaces” for anonymous sex with multiple partners; use condoms; and wear gloves during particular sexual activities.
These five suggestions to reduce the chance of spread were added to the seven that appeared on the webpage when it was updated on July 12. In that previous update, the CDC offered suggestions for sexual activities for people who have (or think they have) “monkeypox and … decide to have sex.”
Friday’s update contains stronger messaging, with the CDC now saying “the best way to protect yourself and others is to avoid sex of any kind … while you are sick.” People should especially “avoid touching any rash.”
Your lightning lighted the world; the earth quivered and trembled. – Introit, Feast of the Transfiguration
“The only way out of this is for someone in authority, which we all know at this point means Cardinal Burke – let’s stop pretending there is anyone else with the authority of the illegally deposed Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura (aka Chief Justice of the Vatican Supreme Court) – to end this Antipapacy and BREAK THE CYCLE outside of supernatural intervention.” HERE
Cardinal Burke, you were born for this, for this you came into the world. God works through men, and men are called to do God’s work. God desiring to carry out His Divine Will through men of His choosing is the very fabric of the bible, further testified through the lives of the saints. Your Eminence, this is your time, your time to be transformed into a saint, perhaps even a Doctor of the Church. It’s been nine years; you know full well there is no way Bergoglio is pope, and you know that antipopes need to be deposed in real time, by real men and women who know the truth and have the conviction to get it done. Bergoglio is openly worshipping demons, for all the world to see, and he installed a demon at St. Peter’s. What exactly is it going to take? You need not even start with any sort of declaration of moral certainty, you just need to set things in motion. Try this: “Significant irregularities have been discovered concerning the purported February 2013 resignation of Pope Benedict XVI which need to be investigated.” Trust me, legions of canonists, Latinists, theologians, and historians are waiting for this signal, and will pounce like a tiger when given the chance.
Readership, you need to get in on this. I am asking everyone to please pray one extra Rosary for Cardinal Burke, today or tomorrow, and make it the Sorrowful Mysteries, with a concentration on the fruit of the third mystery:
Virgin Most Powerful, pray for us.
“It was in order to strengthen the faith of Peter, James, and John for the approaching ordeal of the Passion that Jesus led them up Mount Tabor and was transfigured before them. Beholding Christ as the brightness of the Father and the figure of God’s substance, Peter cried out, “Lord, it is good for us to be here!” Yet only a short while later, the same Peter would deny his master during the agonizing darkness of the Passion. “Jesus has now many lovers of His heavenly kingdom, but few that are willing to bear His cross,” says the author of The Imitation of Christ. “But they that love Jesus for Jesus’ sake and not for any comfort of their own, bless Him no less in tribulation and anguish of heart than in the greatest consolation.”” https://tridentine-mass.blogspot.com/2022/08/the-transfiguration-of-our-lord-saint.html

Biden administration declares monkeypox a public health emergency
WASHINGTON — Amid growing calls from health officials across the country, the Biden administration declared the current monkeypox outbreak to be a public health emergency in the U.S. on Thursday afternoon.
The declaration, which was made by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, comes a little less than two weeks after the World Health Organization designated the outbreak an emergency of international concern.
By issuing a declaration, HHS will be able to take a series of actions including accessing funds set aside for such an emergency as well as appointing personnel to positions directly responding to the emergency. It also gives Health Secretary Xavier Becerra significant flexibility to bend federal rules or waive requirements on government health programs like Medicaid, Medicare and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
“We are prepared to take our response to the next level,” Becerra said on a media call Thursday. “And I ask each American to take monkeypox seriously.”
