Science By Making Things Up: Expert Hubris & Disease X

Science By Making Things Up: Expert Hubris & Disease X

Hubris-filled egoists are at the WEF’s I-Love-Experts annual festival, and there they have decided that there will be a brand new disease of unknown etiology, unknown vector, and unknown mechanism that they have declared (says this report) “could result in 20 times more fatalities than the coronavirus pandemic.”

How could they know this number when they know nothing about the disease? Answer: they cannot. They are making it up.

So ignorant are they of this new disease they know all about, yet know nothing of, that they have decided to call it “Disease X”.

We are well used to science by Fantasy by this time, so it comes as no surprise Experts will make predictions based only on their authority as Experts. Problem is, as it always has been, that they want us to take them seriously because they are Experts.

We took them seriously in the covid panic. Let’s remind ourselves how that turned out. Besides the brutally stupid punishing oppositely effective lockdowns, preposterous mask mandates and other ridiculous health theatrics, and forced vaccinations complete with vax-passports, there was all those dead bodies. As the article says, after Experts first created the coronadoom in immoral gain-of-lethality research, they had an Oopsie. And then “Nearly 7 million people have died worldwide with COVID-19, nearly 1.2 million of them in the United States.”

Of course, none of these numbers can be trusted. The USA did lead the world in panic, which is why so many deaths in the official total are from there. Some countries, like China, saw their government declare its covid-zero policy early on a success, and what bureaucracy dared disagree? Xi Who Must Be Obeyed’s critics have an amusing habit of disappearing or dying of Hillary disease.

That’s my point of view. That’s not what Experts got from the three-plus years of idiot panic. What they took from it was how wonderful they are. And how needed.

Remember how they gathered in Zoom meetings, still wearing masks, though all alone, so that they could show how earnest they were, and how they always came to the conclusion that what was needed was more Expertisms? I remember.

They remember, too. Which is why we have this:

“Disease X” was first mooted by the WHO, in a review of pathogens considered a priority for research to inform public health planning, as a placeholder name for an as-yet unknown virus that could infect humans. As such, it does not represent a particular disease but another pandemic-causing virus that could emerge and should be planned for.

Now there’s a lot of talk on our side about the suspicious nature of these discussions. Here they are admitting they don’t know diddly squat about Disease X, but they are also mouthing terrifying things like it could kill 140 million people. That sounds mighty suspicious. Especially when you consider the WHO and other gatherings of Experts made play time simulating a pandemic just before the covid Oopsie. They even trot out software salesman Bill Gates to rub his enormous belly and issue prophetic warnings, as he did before.

And here is Google pre-announcing that some “Sensitive Event” is coming, in which, with sad hearts, they will have to censor the internet hard.

Could it be that these simpletons are not as dim as we suspect, are not filled to the brim with notions of their own superiority, and that they are instead quite clever and are planning on releasing Disease X? After all, Experts hate people. They are constantly saying there are too many of us, their minds addled by telling each other horror stories of “climate change”.

Then comes curious reports like in this headline, well timed to coincide with announcements of Disease X: “Chinese scientists ‘create’ a mutant coronavirus strain that attacks the BRAIN and has a 100% kill rate in mice – as they admit there’s a ‘risk it spills over to humans’“. Showing at least Experts have learned zero lessons from the last gain-of-lethality experiment.

Plus, the States are slated to have an election which even NPR listeners are predicting will be tumultuous. And you better know that the woke remember just how well all those “covid-necessary” mail-in ballots worked in fortifying the last one.

Well. Such a conspiracy might be so. I cannot prove it isn’t.

But given my years wandering among academics I believe arrogance, sheer stubborn pig-headed belief in their own limitless abilities, accounts for the data better.

You might not have read the sublime The Price of Panic: How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic into a Catastrophe, but in that book we looked back and found that Experts have been playing this “What Happens When We Are Put In Charge During The Next Pandemic” for a long time, and many times. With arch midwits like Neil Ferguson predicting, many times, enormous numbers of dead for every noticed malady, academics have been forming committees and trying to juice panics. It was only with covid that their efforts finally paid off.

There are many reasons for this, not the least that they finally got lucky. Others such as the widespread availability of social media didn’t hurt. Consider the Asian flu and Hong Kong pandemics of the mid-Twentieth Century killed proportionally more people in shorter times, but with no panics.

Yet those pandemics happened when academia was not as huge, domestically and globally, as it is now. There were not as many Experts as we suffer now.

Problem is, conspiracy or no, Experts will be scouring the globe looking for any excuse they can find to be put back in charge. Propagandists have for decades tried their best to juice panics, almost annually (here’s a list of attempts). But now everybody’s skittish because of covid.

You might have figured out that the covid panic was not necessary, but most have not. Most people believe whatever glowing screens tells them they must believe. I say, and repeat endlessly, that propaganda works, because why? Because propaganda works!

Watch the skies, my friends. Pay attention to propaganda outlets. I confidently predict a slew of headlines like this one, “Could this new bug be Disease X?” It won’t even have to be “new”. They could start re-panicking over flu. Or clusters of “mysterious” here and there.

    As Theoden might have said: “What can men do, against such reckless lying?”

    I doubt almost-everything about the “covid” not-pandemic, including whether there is a specific virus with the claimed structure (since the isolation procedure was an utter joke, and the posited structure a computer ‘model’) – but what I find bewildering is that people don’t notice how paltry was the *actual* (despite being deliberately-massively-inflated and added-to-by-measures) officially-claimed death rate.

    7 million dead people from “covid” in a world of 7 billion people is only 1:1000, or 0.1%.

    This was not sufficiently high mortality even to count as a pandemic up until They (i.e. WHO) changed the definition of “pandemic” to exclude the need for a high mortality in 2019* (That was fortunate advanced timing, wasn’t it?).

    A Real pandemic, by the old definition would have been – oh… – at least *one* percent fatal, usually a few percent. That kind of national and global death rate was, of course, what was predicted. “Covid” falls short by an order of magnitude.

    This happens again and again – in May 2021 there were headlines that At Least 200,000 people had died of “covid” in India alone!!! 200 Thousand in a country of 1.3 *Billion* = well, an almost undetectably small percentage mortality.

    Your strategy to improve public statistical understanding seems hopeless when even a division sum is beyond the ability of The Experts.

    The current WHO definition of pandemic only means that the disease is new and has spread widely, to several nations/ locations; and a “pandemic” does not, anymore, need to be dangerous. Ever heard any Official Expert point that out?

    “could result in 20 times more fatalities than the coronavirus pandemic.”

    Now I’m no mathematician, but doesn’t 20 x 0 equal 0?

    I liked “Xi who must be obeyed “

  4. As i am sure you know the “disease X” business has been around for decades and is the usual basis for scenario planning. What you may not (?) have fully assimilated is that the appointee reaction to covid-19 (which, incidently, also killed 100% of its victims in its initial form) included throwing out well considered response plans in favor of ad hoc ism and using organizational positions, funding, and the media to silence those with subject matter expertise who objected.

    That’s the thing to get upset about: not that they’re planning for the next pandemic, but that people with no actual expertise (Collins, Fauci, et al were/are 30+ years out of date on science) on the subject get to throw those plans out when push comes to shove.

    My favorite CV19 quick change was redefining “vaccine” so the jabs would qualify.

    I also remember some were asking why we weren’t following any 911 Comission recommendations for chemical, biological or nuclear terrrorism.

    I’m not sure I ever heard any of the 911 Comission’s actual recommendations but I’m sure sending people with CV19 to old folks homes wasn’t among them.

    Briggs: ….Consider the Asian flu and Hong Kong pandemics of the mid-Twentieth Century killed proportionally more people in shorter times, but with no panics….

    Denis Rancourt looked at the mortality statistics of those events: NO excess all-cause mortality in any country.

    The idea that C19 was a pandemic is also baseless:

    This winter and the next, EVEN MORE people will be dying of the cold!

    It could chiefly be because all the wind turbines froze, thus ceasing to produce electricity for people to heat their homes or while charging their Teslas and keep warm, and a zillion other things necessary for life that need to be plugged in…

    But, as with decriminalizing shoplifting and watching all the local grocery and pharmacy stores close, the Expurts and media can only reach one solution – more wind turbines, increased carbon taxes, and public funding to help these dying and poor people.

    The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has called on countries to sign the health organization’s pandemic treaty so the world can prepare for a placeholder virus called “Disease X.”

    This article deserves careful reading because it’s mostly direct quotations from the WHO, and gives away their hand: this “placeholder virus” (along w/ the “Climate Crisis” we might add) is, in their words, the “common enemy”, allowing them to pass that globalists’ wet dream, a “Pandemic Treaty” which will provide a “shared response” to “another outbreak”, because “it’s not if, but when.”

    We can be sure that all things will eventually be covered by this “treaty”, because in their view, everything, including “racism” and “transphobia”, is a Health Crisis.

    We can also be sure that their “shared response” will include every bad thing they did last time: lockdowns, quarantines, church and school closures, forced vexxines, and forced masking, but this time on an international level. (And, how convenient for local leaders to avoid responsibility: “It’s out of our hands!”)

    We know this because they’ve never apologized for, or disavowed, any of it, and they are still pushing gene-altering, spike-protein-manufacturing vexxines, and they are still encouraging “masking”, which means strapping a non-sterile micro-plastic/graphene-fiber-embedded Petri dish across our breathing holes and those of our children.

    The article even gives us a photo of a schoolchild wearing a mask, to remind us of what governments are capable of doing to us at their WHIM, let alone “by treaty”.

    Until the WHO plandemic “treaty” is signed on the dotted line, we’ll be seeing more articles like this:

    “Arctic ‘zombie’ viruses in Siberia could one day be released by Earth’s warming climate and trigger a new pandemic, scientists warn” | Daily Mail Online

    “[Scientists] previously published research that showed that roughly one in a hundred ancient pathogens caused major disruptions to ecosystems. 

    “Though the number seems small, the teams research claims that four sextillion cells escape permafrost every year at current rates. 

    “One percent of 4 sextillion is a number most people can’t even conceive. There’s so many, many opportunities for this to happen. ‘The probability is rare for one individual virus, but there are so many potential viruses,’ Corey Bradshaw, the Director of the Global Ecology Laboratory at Flinders University in Australia, previously told CNN. 

    “Last year, scientists from Russia, Germany and France identified six ancient diseases trapped in permafrost that had the potential to wreak untold havoc on the world.”

    This is one way they’ll get glow-bull warming into their plandemic “treaty”:

    “We can’t even find our own asses with both hands, but even so, we’ll stop the climate from “changing” and save you from those Arctic Zombie Viruses, which are escaping the permafrost by the SEXTILLIONS!”

    Wouldn’t surprise me if ‘Disease X’ simply turns out to be the official cover narrative for all the side-effects of the vexxine.

    When you want to hide a tree, you have to hide it in the forest.
