The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released data last week suggesting life expectancy dropped by nearly 2 years in 2020.
What should be noted is the CDC generally takes years to produce data on life expectancy. On the CDC’s life expectancy page, the most recent official data available is from 2017.
However, the CDC needs us to remain in fear and can produce what it wants resulting in the propaganda media doing what it always does, push fear. Take NBC News’ story on the data headlined “U.S. death rate soars 17 percent in 2020, final CDC mortality report concludes.”
The CDC report claims life expectancy dropped from 78.8 years to 77 years with age-adjusted mortality rising from 715.2 to 836.4 per 100,000 between 2019 and 2020.
It should be apparent that you can’t trust any data that comes out from the government, but even if you take these numbers at face value they are not the bombshell the CDC and the corporate media want you to believe.
Ryan McMaken for the Mises Institute did a thorough look at data through history and provided perspective the mainstream media will not give.
While the media wants us all to be afraid of COVID-19, McMaken writes: “A closer look at these numbers suggests that covid does not exactly represent an epochal change in life expectancy, health, or healthcare. Moreover, the new numbers also help illustrate how efforts by journalists earlier this year to describe COVID-19 as ‘deadlier’ than the 1918 flu were wildly off the mark.”
McMaken includes a wildly doctored chart from The Daily Mail to try and claim life expectancy shot straight down in 2020 with only a handful of years included, but a different story is told when look at historical trends.
“In 2020, life expectancy fell from 78.8 years in 2019 to 77 years in 2020,” McMaken wrote. “That’s a drop of 2.3 percent. However, we also find that 2020s life expectancy of 77 years was equal to that of 2001, a period not exactly of the distant past before penicillin. Nor were the gains between 2001 and 2020 particularly impressive. Life expectancy in the US didn’t budge more than one-tenth of a year between 2010 and 2019, going back and forth between 78.7 and 78.8. This means from 2001 to 2010, life expectancy increased only 2.2 percent. (Compare, for example, with the increase from 1971 to 1980 when life expectancy increased by 3.6 percent). In other words, it didn’t take much for life expectancy to return to a level from 20-years prior. The past twenty years has not exactly been a period of great progress in this regard.”
McMaken added: “A historical view also reveals that recent and ongoing attempts to compare the COVID-19 pandemic to the flu epidemic of 1918 are hardly appropriate. From 1917 to 1918, life expectancy is estimated to have fallen by an enormous 23 percent, falling from 50.9 to 39.1.”
These frauds have been exposed in the CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), etc.
Remember, recently the U.K. claimed the first death of omicron, otherwise known as the common cold. They would not provide any details on the alleged death by omicron, but officials pushed fear to continue the tyranny.
The same thing is happening here in America, as Tyler Durden reported for Zero Hedge of the first alleged omicron death occurring in Texas.
Texas officials came out with a report declaring “Harris County Reports First COVID-19 Omicron Variant-Related Death” as the headline to the report yet admitting in the report the individual had “underlying health conditions had tested positive for the Omicron variant,” but there’s no evidence the death was from the variant.
Durden wrote that “officials in Texas are also being tight-lipped about the circumstances of this first death, after the increasingly careless mainstream media blared out the news that an American had died “from” the omicron variant, when that’s actually not the case — or at least has not yet been confirmed to be the case.”
“Not only did Harris County public health officials initially claim only that the man died with the Omicron variant of COVID-19, a spokeswoman for the county confirmed this is the case when a Blaze reporter followed up later in the week,” Durden added.
Also, it’s important to note, the fear is being pushed because of one possible, but clearly not proven in any way, shape or form, death to the variant. People do die of the common cold every year. People die of viruses and diseases all the time. It’s a given, we’re all going to pay the wages of sin someday. That was true throughout history.
Still, the panic is being pushed and the bureaucrats have exposed themselves.
Take the emails released between Francis Collins, retiring NIH director, and Anthony Fauci in which Collins states there were “fringe epidemiologists” they needed to make “a quick and devastating published take down” of because they were opposed to medical tyranny. The emails show this has never been about health, it’s about control.
The so-called “fringe epidemiologists” included Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Sunetra Gupta and Dr. Martin Kulldorff who authored the Great Barrington Declaration which has been signed by nearly 1 million people.
Don’t buy the dear that the government and state-run corporate media is selling.
