Oh No! More Covid-19!

Yeah, yeah. What the hell is the matter with Rebel? He is not a doctor and yet he keeps “spouting off” about the CoronaVirus.. As one proud member of the Iron Order explained to me the other day, “you should stick to motorcycles and stop pretending you are a doctor.”

You probably deserve an explanation for why I continue to cover this minor, little plague.  There are two reasons. One is cynical and the other is idealistic.

The cynical reason is I really can’t afford to lose any more readers. Literally. Stay alive and continue to read and when you can donate. That is The Aging Rebel business model.

The idealistic reason is that this is a niche journalism site with an audience in a demographic that appears to be most susceptible to this current pandemic. The point of journalism is to inform readers and viewers. And, on the subject of Covid-19, most news outlets are much more comfortable running opinion than fact. It is my moral obligation to try to inform you. Period.

So this page is running this libtard, propagandistic, obnoxious video produced by the National Geographic Society. Please watch it. The knowledge might come in handy.

    @Shovelhead +1

    Every Biker Forum or Blog I use has, at some point, been hijacked by some foil hatted zealot who thinks he knows more than us mere mortals and sets about ‘educating’ the great unwashed with what he has discovered on the web about Big Brother, The Illuminati, The Lizard People, Aliens etc

    As Shovelhead says, we can all find it if we want. And, as free thinkers, we can choose to believe it or not. For every ‘source’ blaming 5G etc for the virus, I can produce one contradicting it. Joys of the Internet, every man and his dog can publish his ideas, however far out.

    If the Deep State IS out to get you, there is FUCK ALL you can do about it.So make hay while the sun shines.

    Then again, if Woody Harrelson sez it’s true…………………

    Surely if it’s no worse than flu, and nothing to worry about, it doesn’t matter WHAT the cause???? Enjoy downloading conspiracy theories faster……. Just stop carpet bombing this site with them???

    “Shakiest gun in the West” Give it a break why don’t ya. All your ramblings about this virus comes from the Internet. Nothing we all can’t find ourselves if we search hard enough. Just because you read it, doesn’t mean it’s true. That goes for both sides. We make a choice whether to believe the story or not.
    I mean really, do we all have any way to prove or disprove what we read?

    It’s just opinion, conspiracy theories. I know, I know. Kennedy was murdered by the CIA, or the Mafia.

    Armstrong didn’t really walk on the Moon.

    911 was orchestrated by Dick Cheney to get us in a Middle East war so he could get his hands on the oil, and give huge contracts to his old company.

    Big foot is real.

    Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike.

    Adolf Hitler survived the Second World War and fled to the Americas.

    Donald Trump is the Antichrist.

    Well actually, I do believe that last one!

    @ Gandalf,
    You say this site is being invaded?
    I remember when it was invaded by YOU. I also remember when you lied and said you were going away. Now it appears that you are threatening to go away again? “If Rebel wants this blog to become Anti-American so be it but I won’t be a part of that.”

    Please say it’s true and real this time. I’ve tried to speak respectfully with you before, but it seems as if it has fallen on deaf ears. For the life of me…I can’t understand your purpose in coming and hanging out in a place where you don’t appear to be very welcome.

    No need to respond, because I won’t get into an internet warrior conflict with you. I have other things that are more entertaining during this lock down. Like watching my little dog lick its ass. Maybe I’ll go see if Sled Tramp is still kickin.

    “UnAmerican anarchist?”, nope,not me. Not a 1%er either, though I do like to be left alone, so you got that part right. In fact, this new fangled “social distancing” is pretty much who I already am, maybe like brer rabbit in the briar patch. Anyway, I agree with Rebel’s position here, though it’s easy to see there’s a lot of other stuff in the wind right now, and since the bullshit of JFK, 9/11, and dozens of other false flags, probably daily, all over the world, healthy skepticism about Anything this govt, or any other, puts out is, well, healthy. Whatever your real point is, at least you’re here online instead of out babbling on a street corner somewhere, which is safer for everyone.

    You have been doing a great job of getting the truth out. For some reason there are those for their own perverted reasons or lack of intelligence that enjoy stirring the pot.
    Keep up with the great job of journalism for you are a beacon in the storm and I will stay away from the internet will drinking my bourbon.

    Dear Shovel

    The DNA match between Covid-19 and the tested bat population was around 84%. It only takes a small jump in unhygenic market conditions between a third party animal and a obliging human host having a second helping and Viola… Corona.. My moneys on the soup….

    The real surprise is that it doesn’t happen more often having seen pictures of the meat markets there….. stay safe..

    Grumblings from 3am
    (does anyone still remember Michael Ventura)

    How the Covid-19 Coronavirus taught me to understand Common Core Mathematics.

    During President Trump’s earliest Press Briefings on the Coronavirus, before he formed the Cononavirus Task Force, and it was probably the 3rd such Press Briefing, there was an article in one of the Authentic Media in which they asked the question: How many times will Trump say “Chinese Virus” ? during the Briefing. And [the O/U was 3.5]. This is where three divided by four is not 0.75 it is 3.5 !! LOL That’s Common Core for you.

    A Presidents’ view:

  26. tiger Says:

    Rebel,
    I think your estimates might be close if this is not gotten under control. My step-daughter is one of the individuals tasked with taking care of the deceased in Brooklyn. She told us today that they are running out of places to store the corpses before cremation. They have 150 stored at one funeral home that is just for storage.We sent her some ppe that I was able to aquire the other day by luck.
    Anyone who thinks this is a hoax or fake. Do us all a favor and go out partying or gather in an emergency room and kiss the sick so we don’t have to hear or see your know-it-all bullshit.
    Be safe most.
    The others good luck because your going to need it.

  27. NoOneInParticular Says:

    I swore I wasn’t going to baited by this troll again. And yet here I am. His absolute and willful and conscious denial of fact has gotten to me yet again, much to his delight, I’m sure. THIS is what he wants – attention, just like the Orange Twit.

    @Straight Shooter I read the New England Journal of Medicine. I read other studies by recognized by epidemiological professionals from around the world at their source. And you read … what?? This shit?? Fer godssakes, grow a neuron or two and learn to check with primary sources …….. and learn what the long words mean.

    You and the people like you are knowingly and actively and reveling in killing other innocent people. YOU are guilty of negligent homicide at the very least.

    And you are not helpful in the attempt to try to balance public safety with the larger Constitutional concerns, so very necessary at this time with a White House trying to consolidate its power over the other branches of government and a subservient Congress, with states putting into place mandates that violate our Constitutional rights in the name of “public safety”. Will they be rolled back when the crisis is over? Do you care?

    Grow up, get a dictionary and learn to check primary sources, and learn to think critically for a change, for pity’s sake….. The life you save which is all you seem to care about, and the country you save, may actually be your own.

  30. James W Crawford Says:

    Rebel:

    My own perception continues to evolve as more data becomes available.

    Counties such as Itally and Iran are experiencing a 25% lethality rate. The lethality rate before they got their shit together has been as high as 75%! If 1/2 the global population gets this virus and the lethality rate is only 10%, it will kill 350 million people.

    I had a scum sucking whore of an attorney ask me how many guns I own. I testified that I own more guns than can easily be counted. He then asked how much ammunition I own. I testified that I own about a cubic meter of ammunition. I also have two chest freezers full of deer and elk as well as about a years worth of freeze dried food.

  31. Straight Shooter Says:

    The military are now in place. They are never leaving. The places closed in the beginning? They will never be allowed to open again. Once locked down that will not be reversed. And that Spanish Flu outbreak occurred AFTER being vax/d.

  32. Old & Jaded Says:

    Rebel,

    When I first read your estimate re the corona virus fatalities I thought no way. Then I looked into how many people died behind the Spanish Flu; worldwide, the low end estimate is +/-
    25 million and many articles site a high end figure that’s up to double. Factoring in major advances in medicine since then, hopefully we won’t see such huge numbers. People are wise to take this seriously.

  33. oldskewl Says:

    Dear, Rebel.

    I sincerely hope you’re wrong on those numbers, although anything is possible.

    Stay safe.

    The responses from same 4 are textbook MSM narrative. You only know what their newsreaders tell you. The next step is taking the money system. With so many already strapped for cash, these folk will give away massive freedoms to have some food. And thew far more windy rebuttals further prove your lack of being a free & critical thinker. The name calling is juvenile indicating arrested development in the ‘teens.

  38. Rebel Says:

    Dear James W Crawford,

    I personally think this plague is going to kill 12 million people. Worse than that will be the disruption of the economy. I said my piece on the subject and I doubt I changed any minds. I suspect you areb’t changing any either. Everybody here is a grown man or woman. Yestgerday in Manhattan Beach, a surfer was arrested and fined $1,000 for going in the water. That’s the sort of crap that really bothers me. Asd as the death toll mounts, the authoritarianism, the shortages of everything and social division is going to get much worse. Stay safe. Stock up. Buy ammo if your gun stores are still open. Keep the bike and the car gassed up.

    Rebel

  39. James W Crawford Says:

    I see we have more conspiracy theorists continuing to push the tinfoil hat narrative that the Coronavirus is “just the flu.”. Google “Spanish Flu.”. It killed more people than WW1.

    Right now it is estimated that only one person in one thousand has the Coronavirus. As a result, the number of Coronavirus deaths is still trivial compared to the number of people who normally die from the Flu. This number is based on testing which is not universal because it can’t be. Given the observed doubling time of about one per week, it took about 20 weeks starting in November for one million people to get infected.

    The Coronavirus pandemic will seem to abate in the Northern hemisphere this summer, just like the seasonal flu. Unfortunately; the Coronavirus is like a migratory water fowl. It is flying South for the summer. Australia and South America already have significant numbers of infections. The Coronavirus is unusual because it is infecting people in the tropics! Brazil’s President is going full fucktard by not taking precautions. Given another​ twenty weeks for the number of infections to keep growing, tbe Coronavirus will return to the Northern hemisphere next Fall, with a vengeance. The doubling will not start with only one infection. The doubling will start with one million or even ten million infections. Expect to see billions of people infected by this time next year.

    It is difficult to predict how many people will be killed by the Coronavirus. Estimates of the lethality rate are estimates. The estimates are based on selective testing. However; the lethality rate seems to be dependent on age as well as how stressed the health care system is. If there are enough hospital beds and ventilators, only the frail elderly are likely to die. Overload the hospitals with millions of infections rather than thousands, then the lethality rate will be much higher.

  40. Shovelhead Says:

    Yeah, besides controlling the media, the CIA is also controlling my eyes and I didn’t really just see an Ambulance carry away my neighbor who was positive with Covid-19. CIA is controlling my ears too apparently, because I just talked to an old friend who’s father is in a drug induced come on a ventilator after being diagnosed with the virus the other day…yes, that quick!

    I don’t always believe the media, and I know they tend to hype things up for ratings. This however, I’m seeing with my own eyes now, and here’s also thousands of regular people putting out video from their own phones of body bags in refrigerated trailers outside NY Hospitals, Field hospitals set up in Central Park. That’s not the media, it’s from fellow Americans with first hand knowledge.
    This is no hoax!! I do wonder where this really came from, was it really bat soup in Wuhan? Or Biological Weaponry released accidently.
