Brady the Puggle this morning on a stopover at my place as part of a month-long "holiday"
So, last night, I had an all-too-brief visit from Brady and his daddy, as they were passing through D.C. to some Atlantic seaside places.
In the meantime, I strongly recommend reading Alex Berenson's twitter feed today. If not the feed, then at least one thread and one standalone posting. The thread is here:
Key points in the 10-point thread:
1. PCR tests sharply overstate how many people have Sars-COV-2.
2. States use those tests to assign deaths from #COVID. If many people are falsely positive, real COVID-related deaths must be lower than the reported figure...
7. We now know the testing is leading to some deaths that have nothing to do with COVID to be classified as COVID. But we have no idea how many. We have no idea how the real increase caused by lockdown deaths interacts with the artifactual increase in COVID-classified deaths.
9: But - and I would NOT have said this before the NYT piece on PCR testing - that the number of misclassified COVID deaths is now very substantial, while the number of lockdown/panic deaths is actually over 100,000 (let's call the nursing home deaths "panic" deaths).
And the Twitter posting here. I am reposting it here:
So @facebook is still censoring anti-lockdown efforts - it just deleted a 120,000-person Australian protest group.
A local writes: "Things are getting volatile and the surveillance and authoritarian stuff is just so bad."
Protests planned for Saturday.
The lockdown situation in Australia is just out of control. It's basically a totalitarian regime in the cities. Maybe Australia just needs some WOKE BLM/Antifa rioting, looting, and mayhem -- that always causes the authorities to instantly relent on the Health Emergency Police State.

To show you how lunatic and totalitarian-like is the situation in Australia, a pregnant woman was arrested in her own home on the charge of "incitement" for a Facebook post organizing an anti-lockdown protest. And the ass-wipe police-state government is arresting multiple people. That's deeply fucked up and shows you how off-the-rails Australia has gone.
Elect Biden and wall-to-wall Illiberal Leftwing Dems with their twitter mobs and media panic porn purveyors, and this is exactly what you will get in America. But at least Nancy Pelosi can go to that salon and get her hair done.
End of Update.
Brady practices social distancing from the media this morning
OK, that's all for now.
