This week there has been a fair amount of data regarding breakthrough cases on CoVid and it is becoming increasingly clear that the US is really cooking the books. The article below proves Fauci is lying about the 99% unvaccinated part just with his own numbers. Article here.

Covid and the Numbers
From Jersey Joe:
At the height of the pandemic in the US. the reported death rate (daily deaths divided by REPORTED new daily cases) was 1.4% (Seven day average of 253,000 new daily cases per day divided by a peak seven-day daily death rate of 3,500). As low as that figure was, if you accept the CDC estimate that there were actually 8X as many actual cases of Covid infections than those confirmed by testing, that fatality rate would drop to 0.18%.
Now let’s look at the current fatality rate for the Delta variant. Right now the seven-day average rate for reported new cases is 67,293. The seven-day average fatality rate is 303. That yields a case fatality rate of just 0.45% for TESTED & CONFIRMED cases. 0.45% divided by 1.4% is just 32%.
That means that the reported case fatality rate for the Delta variant is less than 1/3 that of the original Covid 19 virus. If you also apply the 8X CDC actual vs reported case factor to that data, the fatality rate drops to less than 0.06% (6 hundredths of 1 % = 6 fatalities per 1,000 infections).

The European Central Bank said it’s going to increase the amount of money its putting in the financial system. It’s also going to maintain easy-money policies for longer.
The Fed also announced the introduction of a new repurchase facility yesterday. It will basically make $1 trillion available in the overnight lending markets, $500 B domestically and foreign.
These facilities are designed to increase access to cash. It’s an interesting move when many money managers are using the Fed’s reverse repurchase facility currently to store $1 trillion worth of cash. Could be a signal it’s getting ready to change policy direction. Both of these items could portend a stronger dollar – more euros and fewer dollars.
If that plays out, it could ease some of the inflation dynamics in this country as a stronger dollar has more buying power.
