    You’d think there would be a flood of public service announcement telling people to exercise, lose weight, quit smoking tobacco and dope, but no, the only thing you hear is get the vaccine. Why is that?

    Tony, you’ve done much excellent work on other topics, like PM 2.5 and climate change (and the last 1/3 of this video is on target). Unfortunately, you’ve gone off the rails on the topic of Covid-19.

    You called the pandemic a “plandemic,” which is a coined word used by conspiracy theorists who think the pandemic was “planned.” It’s crazy-talk.

    What’s more, contrary to your implication, Sweden did NOT seek “herd immunity” without vaccination. Those high death rates which you CLAIMED were predicted for Sweden were NOT actually predictions. They were calculations of what the cost in lives WOULD BE for Sweden to reach herd immunity by letting the disease run rampant, as some people had advocated. It is disappointing that you misrepresented them as predictions.

    It is also disappointing that you did not acknowledge that your own predictions for Sweden were disastrously wrong. On June 10, 2020, when 4,938 Swedes had lost their lives to Covid-19, you predicted that “in a few weeks, Sweden will be close to zero deaths.”

    I wish you’d been right. You weren’t.

    Here’s a screenshot:

    Since you made your prediction of “close to zero deaths,” Sweden’s death toll from Covid-19 has tripled. As of today, according to worldometers, it stands at 14,916:

    You also predicted that Sweden’s 2020 annual mortality would be approximately 90,000. It was actually 97,941. That’s far outside the range of normal year-to-year variability:

    90,674 = average no. of annual Swedish deaths, 2011-2019.

    Worst: 2018 had 1,511 more deaths than avg.

    2nd worst: 2012 had 1,298 more than avg.

    Best: 2019 had 1,908 fewer deaths than avg.

    2nd best: 2014 had 1,698 fewer than avg.

    But 2020 had 97,941 – 90,674 = 7,267 more deaths than an average year.

    Thankfully, Sweden did not seek herd immunity by letting the disease run rampant. Before vaccines were available the Swedes did what they thought was prudent to reduce spread of the disease.

    Their precautions were less stringent than what neighboring countries did, but they didn’t just let the disease spread unchecked. For instance, you can read here about Stockholm University’s response to the pandemic here:

    https://www.su.se/english/about-the-university/information-on-covid-19/information-for-students-and-staff-about-covid-19

    Sweden relied more heavily on voluntary measures than other Scandinavian countries did, and, unfortunately, they paid a heavy price for it. Their death rate from Covid-19 was much worse than neighboring countries, and 5.4× worse than those countries’ average Covid-19 death rate.

    Most Eastern European countries did even worse than Sweden, as did the United States and a few other Western European countries. But that certainly doesn’t mean Sweden did well.

    These figures for Sweden and its neighbors are from late September:

    Norway:
    850 deaths / 5,473,010 population = .016%

    Finland:
    1062 / 5,551,240 = .019%

    Denmark:
    2,634 / 5,817,126 = .045%

    Sweden:
    14,767 / 10,176,187 = .145%

    That’s very high.
    It’s almost as bad as the United States:
    697,041 / 333,373,690 = 0.209%

    The good news is that although Sweden’s vaccination program got off to a slow start, their vaccination rate now exceeds most other countries, including the United States. That’s lowering Sweden’s rates of new Covid-19 cases and deaths:

    Tony, you made some other mistakes, too. At two minutes into this video you said, “Very few children have died from Covid-19.” While it is true that the pediatric death rate from Covid-19 is much lower than for adults, it is not “very few.” The CDC reports that 513 American children are known to have died from Covid-19, so far. Here are their statistics:

    https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Provisional-COVID-19-Deaths-by-Sex-and-Age/9bhg-hcku

    Sooner or later most of us will have Covid-19 antibodies. The only question is, will you get them from the disease, which still has a fatality rate of nearly 1% and leaves many survivors with lasting harm, or will you get them from a vaccine that’s ≥10,000× safer?

    Get smart. Get vaccinated, ASAP!

    When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. The massive increase in chronic illness in this country over the last 80 years tracks nicely with increasing vaxx rates. Someone said somewhere that anyone who researches vaccines becomes anti-vaxx. I wonder why that would be?

    • arn says:

      Well ,some of those pandemics go along with the increase in sugar consumption and eating food that is packed in plastics.
      (diabetes was super rare among native americans and most were skinny before they started eating processed food 70 years ago)

      But the real point here is,
      that usually those professional do gooders disguised as politicians,billionaires and their footsoldiers dont give a crap in lowering allergies or diabetes
      (it would lower pharmalobbies profits)

      but they will waste billions on climate and covid which affects significantly less people.

      • Richard says:

        diabitis is due to the human body not knowing what to do with all the extra fats sugars and junk- the human body has evolved over 500,000 plus years to deal with starvation, humans can go weeks even months on same food a 400 lb pot belly American can eat in 1 day. the human body cannot deal with FAT So’s

    • Tel says:

      On average people are living longer, eating richer food and doing less heavy physical work.

      Sooner or later, something is going to kill you … and it if isn’t accident, or starvation, or war, or disease … then it’s gonna be chronic illness. That’s kind of the deal when you are alive.

      • arn says:

        It’s true that a system gets more defective and vulnerable the older it gets,
        but we are talking about chronicle stuff that spreads like crazy among young people (and we haven’t even touched the massive increase in Autism which scales perfectly along with vaccination increase as result of Mercury and Aluminium contamination)that hasn’t existed before and even among old people the average health standards of Japanese are much higher than Americans though Japanese people get much older.
        So your argument is more of a strawman as this is not age related .

    • Jeff L. says:

      An increase in heart attacks might result from many causes, such as blood clots from the CoViD-19 vaccine (a known phenomenon), or a sedentary lifestyle caused by lock-downs.

  4. Robert L. Gipson says:

    Excellent video, Tony. Besides the Sweden data, here’s an NIH study:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8481107/
    “At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days. The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated.”

    Plandemic. Yup.

  6. Mary I. says:

    Joe Biden isn’t handing the Republicans the next election because the Demos have rigged the election system so they can never lose again. Unless we change that before the next election.

  7. Torgo says:

    We have a leader, and he was the one prominent figure in the US with the guts to tell Saint Greta to pound sand. But he has millions of supporters who would like to do the same thing.

  8. Jack Shit says:

    Anybody else having a problem posting comments?

  9. D. Boss says:

    To my eye the most alarming figure is that 60% of Americans have chronic disease! I believe the plandemic should be no surprise – it is just business as usual for the medical industrial complex. They have been moving the goalposts for some time on a host of normal human functions, so that more and more people are diagnosed or classed as having some “chronic disease” which then requires expensive and harmful “drugs”.

    Case on point is the standard for blood pressure was lowered in 2003, so that 60% to 80% of people are now classed as having high blood pressure. When in fact this is not the case. The standard was incorrectly lowered so the overlords can make tons of money – not just drugs, but all medical services benefit from this false characterization of so many unhealthy people needing medical and pharmaceutical intervention (wink and a nod)

    The kung flu is the same old story – a California team analyzed 1500 “cases” and found all to be either Influenza A or B, and not one was actually Covid19…. Common flu has disappeared… by taking the unscary common flu and making it into a fake monster – they not only make huge manure piles of money, but also get to institute totalitarian control over everyone with fear mongering. (and kill off a big proportion of humanity with the clot shots)
