COVID-19: Do We Have a Coronavirus Pandemic, or a PCR Test Pandemic?
According to the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons:
“It is not so easy to culture a virus, and cultures of SARS-CoV-2 are not routinely done. Unlike in previous epidemics (SARS-CoV-1, H1N1 influenza, Ebola, or Zika), World Health Organization (WHO) guidance has no requirement or recommendation for a confirmatory test in COVID-19.
There is surprisingly little information on the false positive rate of PCR tests for COVID. That all lab tests have false positives should not be controversial, but this idea “has been entirely rejected by governments and the medical establishment, writes Mike Hearn.
Having great-sounding numbers, say a specificity of 99 percent, is not enough. For all tests, the predictive value of a positive test depends on the prevalence of disease. If most of the persons tested are free of disease, a positive test may be more likely to be a false than a true positive. This could at least partially explain the reports of large numbers of asymptomatic carriers of SARS-CoV-2.
Failure to recognize the problem of false positives has consequences—such as possible quarantining of uninfected with infected individuals.
Coronavirus is not a pseudo-epidemic. Many thousands have died. But the dreaded “second wave” might be a surge of false positive tests that are inevitable in mass screenings of healthy persons.”
If you look at the nationwide data, you actually see cases skyrockets while the death rate has remained flat. So, there is something to this “second wave” theory.
Transgender who identifies as a deer is now in charge of Twitch censorship: ‘I have power’
In a recent episode of Slightly Offens*ve, Elijah Schaffer offered a “daily dose” of madness as he discussed a new member of the Twitch moderation team: a transgender who identifies as a deer and who openly threatened to ban Twitch users with less “diverse” opinions.
Calling all Americans to take back our constitutional freedoms
“I have power, they can’t take it away from me,” bragged Steph Loehr, also known as FerociouslySteph. “And honestly there are some people that should be afraid of me, and they are because I represent moderation and diversity and I’m gonna come for harmful people. If you’re a really sh**ty person – I’m gonna stand up against you. Period. And Twitch is endorsing me to do that.”
“At least mental illness has a name, and that name is apparently Steph Loehr,” said Elijah. He played videos of Loehr explaining how she likes to “prance around and eat grass,” as well as having a “deergasm.”
“This is the state of free speech online. This is who’s censoring you,” added Elijah.
Mailchimp will now ban users that it deems, at its “sole discretion,” have sent “false, inaccurate, or misleading” info
According to Disrn.com:
“Mailchimp, the largest mass email service in the world with 69% market share, will now “not allow the distribution of content that is … materially false, inaccurate, or misleading in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances.”

More Than 30 Million Mail Ballots Still Outstanding With Only One Day Until Election
According to Newsweek:
“With just a day to go before the election, more than 31 million mail ballots remain outstanding.
More than 94 million ballots have been already been cast in the 2020 election as of early Monday morning, according to the U.S. Elections Project, which tracks the early vote closely.
Almost two-thirds of those early votes were cast by returning mail ballots (59,961,024) while 34,045,137 were in-person votes.
But the data also shows that 31,385,941 mail ballots are yet to be returned.

Not all states report party affiliations, but those that do include key battleground states Pennsylvania and Florida. Among the states reporting party registration, far more Democrats have returned mail ballots than Republicans ahead of November 3, but they also have more outstanding mail ballots.
According to the data, 8,096,924 Democratic mail ballots remain outstanding, compared to 5,646,271 Republican mail ballots.”
