New Year's advice to unplug from the 24/7 social media/news virtual reality and calm down. I argue that social media, social psychology tricks, recommendation engines, and state of the art AI are driving a massive, costly and dangerous overreaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and offer some advice to retake your mind from technology run amok.

Despite frightening headlines and increased lockdown orders, total COVID-19 deaths in Santa Clara County, California remain remarkably low with total officially reported deaths of only 503 in a county with 1.9 million and close contact with China, the presumed source of the pandemic. This is a number comparable to the number of expected deaths in the county from ordinary pneumonia and influenza based on previous years.

The county continues to authorize many luxury apartment and other construction projects with teams of workers in close proximity five full days per week, after a brief 3-4 week shutdown in May. The lockdown continues to herd large numbers of citizens into a few gigantic stores such as Safeway, Walmart, and Target, enabling what would seem like an efficient route for rapid spread of the disease.

Video review of Mighty Ira civil liberties documentary about former ACLU Executive Director Ira Glasser which focuses heavily on the infamous Skokie legal case about a small group of neo-Nazis with a half-Jewish leader(!) that with the assistance of the ACLU sued successfully to march in Skokie, Illinois -- a Chicago suburb with a heavily Jewish population and several thousand Holocaust survivors in the 1970s.

Sections:

00:00 Intro and Short Review
03:37 Detailed Discussion of Weaknesses of the Documentary
03:41 Passing the buck to the Police?
05:30 Is acknowledging the pain enough?
06:15 The new world of Internet Censorship
08:40 The weaponization of anti-racism by sweatshops
11:24 The frequent failure of Skokie era desegregation
14:00 Conclusion
14:49 Censored Search censored content search engine promo
16:48 Support Us message

Topics:

o Excellent documentary making the case for free-speech absolutism.

o Touching stories about Ira Glasser's friendships with conservative icon William F. Buckley and Skokie Holocaust survivor Ben Stern, with both of whom he had strong disagreements. These help make the case for dialog rather than censorship.

o Some weaknesses of the documentary:

o Arguably passing the buck to police in Charlottesville, VA for the death of a demonstrator during right wing demonstrations and leftist counter demonstrations in 2017.

o Is acknowledging the pain of Holocaust survivors like Ben Stern really enough?

o Documentary is about the past when many free speech issues revolved around protests in publicly owned places such as public parks and roads, whereas the combination of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and privately-owned social media near-monopolies such as Facebook, YouTube, Google and others, often with extensive formal and informal ties to agencies such as the NSA and CIA, has shifted the locus of protest and political activism to the Internet.

o The documentary's focus on the 1960's civil rights movement sidesteps the use of militant anti-racist rhetoric and censorship of speech on anti-racist grounds by high tech and manual labor sweatshops to protect and expand their use of exploitative immigration policy -- guest worker visas -- and illegal immigration to secure cheap, compliant labor today.

o The documentary does not address the failure of Skokie era "desegregation" policies in the Marquette Park neighborhood, home of the neo-Nazis and the actual site of their demonstration after winning the court case, and many other neighborhoods nationwide.

o Overall a great, inspiring documentary available on YouTube, Amazon, and other sites.

Take a break from election madness and journey back to the halcyon days of yore when men were men and giant tentacled things walked the Earth with the Call of Cthulhu Fifties Drive-in Trailer #1. Recall the good old days when Americans flocked to movie theaters and drive-ins to worry about the extinction of the human race in an atomic war or a genocidal invasion by those mysterious creatures in flying saucers, barely even noticing the global pandemic of 1957.

A video on the grossly contradictory CDC FluView pneumonia and influenza death numbers, implied to be influenza virus death numbers, and the CDC Leading causes of death report pneumonia and influenza death numbers, which differ by over a factor of THREE, the lack of reported error bars on the CDC flu and COVID death number counts, required by standard scientific practice, and the effect of this on the US Presidential election.

The FluView web site claims six to ten percent of all deaths are pneumonia and influenza in a prominently displayed graphic. However, the Leading Causes of Death report claims about two percent of deaths are caused by pneumonia and influenza, less than one third of the percentages reported on the FluView web site. No error bars are reported on these numbers.

Looking at the numbers behind the percentages. The CDC uses two grossly contradictory numbers of annual deaths from pneumonia and influenza: about 55,000 in the annual leading causes of the death report and about 188,000 in National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data used on the FluView web site to report the percentage of deaths each week due to pneumonia and influenza. These differ by a factor of OVER THREE. The larger FluView number is comparable to the current cumulative total COVID-19 deaths in the United States frequently cited by the media and compared to a smaller number of about 40,000 "flu deaths."

O Use of the flu death numbers in popular reporting on COVID and the election, usually lacking any error bars, is discussed.

o The CDC's mysterious "flu death" mathematical model -- a theory -- assigning about 50,000 deaths per year to the influenza virus, mostly pneumonia deaths that lack a laboratory confirmed influenza infection, and the usually unreported errors on the output of this model is discussed.

o Evidence of large uncertainties in the assignment of cause of death by doctors, coroners and others is discussed. The lack of proper error bars due to this on both reported "flu death" numbers and COVID death numbers.

o Specific reasons why the CDC would likely be biased against President Trump due to his criticism of vaccine safety and historical statements on the possible role of childhood vaccines promoted by the CDC in causing autism are discussed.

A short video mostly about Glenn Greenwald's resignation from the Intercept over censorship of his article on Joe Biden and Hunter Biden by the Intercept, the web site and reporting organization that he founded with financial backing from Pierre Omidyar, one of the founders of eBay following the Edward Snowden revelations. Conflict of interest customs and laws are discussed briefly in the context of Joe Biden's claims that he was unaware of his son's business activities which clearly constitute a conflict of interest.

A short video showing the contradictory pneumonia and influenza death numbers on the CDC web site and official documents. The FluView web site claims six to ten percent of all deaths are pneumonia and influenza in a prominently displayed graphic. However, the Leading Causes of Death report claims about two percent of deaths are caused by pneumonia and influenza, less than one third of the percentages reported on the FluView web site.

Looking at the numbers behind the percentages. The CDC uses two grossly contradictory numbers of annual deaths from pneumonia and influenza: about 55,000 in the annual leading causes of the death report and about 188,000 in National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data used on the FluView web site to report the percentage of deaths each week due to pneumonia and influenza. These differ by a factor of OVER THREE. The larger FluView number is comparable to the current cumulative total COVID-19 deaths in the United States.

The most recent raw data appears to still be accessible on the FluView Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality web page:

The Censored Search web site is a search engine for censored, banned, and shadow banned web sites that discloses the algorithms used to find and rank the search results and enables paying customers to configure the algorithms for their needs.

Search engines such as Google and social media services such as Facebook are funded by advertisers such as giant health and pharmaceuticals companies and billionaires who pay them to promote their products and services. Even if those products or services are overpriced, ineffective, or dangerous. Major search engines and social media are NOT funded by end users like you.

Find the answers to your problems censored by advertisers and other powerful interests!
Censored Search: https://censored-search.com/

If you are a censored web site, you need an alternative to Google and other search engines to continue to reach your current audience and expand your audience in the face of growing censorship. Mailing lists and RSS subscriptions do not give your audience an easy way to quickly find your content that is relevant to their concerns. Please submit your web site to our censored site search engine at https://suggest.censored-search.com and share our site with your audience.

A short critique of Facebook COVID Memes. Memes oversimplify the issues and usually consist of a straw man argument that almost no one who disagrees with the Meme maker actually makes. Often loaded terms such as "conspiracy theory," "anti-science," "Trump," "Far Right" and so forth are thrown in. The Meme then ridicules the straw man argument.

The CDC's grossly contradictory pneumonia and influenza death numbers are discussed briefly as one example of substantive issues that should be discussed instead of Memes. For more details and references, see: The CDC's Contradictory Death Numbers https://tinyurl.com/y4empg8n

The CDC uses two grossly contradictory numbers of annual deaths from pneumonia and influenza: about 55,000 in the annual leading causes of the death report and about 188,000 in National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data used on the FluView web site to report the percentage of deaths each week due to pneumonia and influenza. These differ by a factor of OVER THREE. The larger FluView number is comparable to the current cumulative total COVID-19 deaths in the United States (Aug 30, 2020).

Video Transcript: The CDC uses two grossly contradictory numbers of annual deaths from pneumonia and influenza: about 55,000 in the annual leading causes of the death report and about 188,000 in National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data used on the FluView web site to report the percentage of deaths each week due to pneumonia and influenza. These differ by a factor of OVER THREE.

This is the leading causes of death report for 2017 on the CDC web site. Table C: Deaths and percentage of total deaths for the 10 leading causes of death: United States, 2016 and 2017 on Page Nine. Note line item number 8 "pneumonia and influenza" with 55,672 deaths in 2017. Also note 2,813,503 deaths from all causes in 2017.

This is the CDC FluView web site. The red line purports to be the percentage of weekly deaths caused by pneumonia and influenza. It varies seasonally and averages about six percent over a year. Six percent of the 2,813,503 deaths in 2017 is 168,810 deaths, over three times the 55,672 deaths in the leading causes of death report.

The actual numbers are available here in data files from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). These give about 188,000 deaths from pneumonia and influenza in 2017. The death numbers for other years are quite similar.

To be clear, the leading causes of deaths report gives 55,672 deaths from pneumonia and influenza in 2017.

The average six percent of deaths from the FluView Graph means about 170,000 deaths must have been due to pneumonia and influenza -- NOT 55,000. In fact, the raw data from the NCHS on the sites gives just about 188,000 deaths due to pneumonia and influenza in 2017, over THREE TIMES the number of deaths in the leading causes of death report and the widely quoted estimated deaths from flu from the CDC.

This means the number of pneumonia and influenza deaths must be highly arbitrary, dependent on unstated definitions, or there are gross counting errors. The larger FluView number of 188,000 is comparable to the current total of COVID-19 deaths in the US which is often compared to a smaller number of flu deaths each year similar to the leading causes of deaths number of 55,000.

Since it is generally agreed that lockdowns and quarantines are not justified for a disease similar to typical annual pneumonia and influenza deaths, the reasons for this gross contradiction in the two annual death numbers should be resolved. Is it correct to compare the COVID-19 death numbers to the FluView number, the leading causes of death number, or some other number and, if so, exactly why and how?

This video discusses several examples of poor judgment or dishonesty by Microsoft Founder and former CEO turned philanthropist and vaccine "expert" Bill Gates, notably his claims of a severe shortage of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workers while simultaneously laying off at least 35,000 STEM workers. Will Bill Gates and his family boldly lead the world by publicly taking the COVID-19 vaccine first in an independently verifiable way?

A video on how to approach expert advice, recommendations, and sometimes orders. In a nutshell we should respect expertise, seek out expert advice and guidance, but evaluate the advice critically and not assume it is correct or infallible -- or nearly so. There are many historical examples of experts, both individually and collectively, being quite wrong, even remarkably or laughably wrong. I discuss the at least thirty-five (35) drugs that were FDA approved and subsequently withdrawn over safety and effectiveness problems, with a focus on Merck's blockbuster Vioxx painkiller, a small subset of known examples in medicine and health.
