  1. “State moves closer to 500,000 confirmed cases”
    A very misleading headline.
    None of the PCR confirmed cases counted before January 20 2021 are valid. In July 2020 Fauci declared the PCR test useless if 35 or more cycles were used, because of excessive false positives. Which means the WHO, CDC, and the FDA all were equally aware this was so no later than Fauci was. Yet all three continued to recommend 40 cycles be used until January 20 this year.
    Just another in the long line of deceptions used to continue the fleecing of the public while at the same time visiting tyranny upon it. I don’t know what the Medical Industrial Complex’s goals are, but our health is not among them.
