The excess death problem won’t go away

Tom Woods writes in a newsletter two days ago:

I just read that during the week ending April 21, 2023, the number of deaths registered in England is 22.9 percent higher than the five-year average.

These numbers keep coming out, and our wise experts keep pretending they aren’t there.

You may have heard of Ed Dowd, author of Cause Unknown, who’s been breaking down the data. When asked about what pieces of data are the most compelling, he offers these:

Two data sets. The Society of Actuaries, which are group life policies at the elite, elite corporations across the U.S., Fortune 500 mid-sized. Their excess mortality in 2021 was 40%. The general U.S. population was 32%. Typically, this group is much healthier than the general U.S. population. The Society of Actuaries has shown that in prior studies. It’s in my book, it’s QR coded.

And they said that in any given year, group life policyholders die at one third the mortality rate of the general U.S. population. So that inverted in 2021 and continues to this day. I blame the vaccines and mandates.

The second piece of data: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics disability data. The disability numbers are around 29 to 30 million for the prior five years going into 2021. Then they exploded in February from about 29 to 30 to 33.2 million. That was a three standard deviation event, which in geek-speak happens 0.03% of the time.

Of those 3.2 million people that were added, 1.7 million are employed. When you look at the disability rate increases, employed went up 31%, the general U.S. population went up 9%. And what’s even worse is, those not in the labor force — people who could work and are willing to work — their disability rate only went up 4%. Those are the people who got fired for not taking the jab or refused to take the jab and quit.

Typically speaking, the employed of the country, by the very nature of going to work, aren’t as disabled as the general U.S. population. And this has never happened in the history of our country. Those two pieces of data are, for me, a mic drop. That’s what I presented to Senator Ron Johnson in December. And that’s it. That’s all we need to know. We’re done here.

In other words, why would the disability trends be so divergent, and especially in the wrong direction? The working population is generally healthier than the non-working, and yet we had this massive reversal of that normal situation. Given how many people working were required to get the jab, and that plenty of the non-working didn’t get it, and disability among the working exploded but it didn’t among the non-working, is it all right with the police if we at least consider that the jab could have had something to do with it?

To people who say “correlation doesn’t equal causation,” Dowd replies: “So did the virus mutate in ’21 and ’22 to only affect younger-aged working people but somehow avoids those who are not employed? Unless we have a new virus that knows you’re working, there’s no explanation for it.”

(Please don’t write to me saying you don’t believe in viruses, because that’s not the point here.)

I personally believe there is deep skepticism about the shots across the political spectrum, even if Democrats are afraid to express it. That’s one reason the RFK, Jr., candidacy is welcome: he is showing them that it’s all right to say these things, just as Ron Paul showed Republicans that it was all right to oppose ridiculous wars.
