Popular podcast ‘Teenager Therapy’ invokes Satan

In September of 2018, five seniors at Loara High School in Anaheim, Calif., started a podcast called Teenager Therapy that’s received attention from major national media, including the New York Times and Wired.

In High Schoolers Across the Country Are Seeking ‘Teenager Therapy’,” Taylor Lorenz of the NYT calls Teenager Therapy “a lifeline for kids and a breakout hit” as “the coronavirus pandemic has upended school, summer plans and daily life for millions of teenagers” so that many are turning to the Teenager Therapy podcast to cope.

According to Jason Parham of Wired, the podcast has 360,000 subscribers, 2.2 million streams, and 1.5 million downloads. Parham glowingly describes  Teenager Therapy as “In the desert of ignored teen emotions, five high school podcasters have become a go-to resource on everything from dating to depression.”

Always hunting for another gullible audience for their “woked” tripe, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently sought out Teenager Therapy for a Zoom “conversation” — heady stuff for the 16 and 17-year-old podcasters.

Given the podcast’s popularity among American children and teens, parents should know that Teenager Therapy is satanic.

Below is a tweet by Teenager Therapy which has since been deleted, but not before alert netizens took notice and saved it. As you can see for yourself, in the tweet, Teenager Therapy calls on Lucifer, aka Satan or the Devil, to “smite” (df: inflict a heavy blow on someone with the hand, a tool, or a weapon) their enemy or critic.

Isn’t it interesting that this is a group with whom Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have associated themselves?

I am reminded of Harry making the devil’s horns hand-sign standing next to First Lady Melania Trump at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

Congressman Jason Smith protests Prince Harry’s interference in U.S. presidential election

The British royalty has a tradition of scrupulous non-interference in the UK’s political affairs.

That being so, it is even more imperative that British royals refrain from using their status and prestige to unduly influence other countries’ political affairs by  being partisan.

But that’s exactly what two “woke” members of the British royal family have done in videos released to the public.

They are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aka Prince Harry, grandson of reigning Queen Elizabeth II and sixth in the line of succession to the British throne, and his D-list Hollywood actress wife Meghan Markle.

Meghan has been vocal in her objection to President Trump. She once said she would never step foot in the United States as long as Donald Trump is President. Of course, like other Hollyweirdos who said they would leave the U.S. if Trump were elected, Meghan’s words also mean nothing, as she and Harry decided to leave their cushy life in the UK to pursue a lucrative Hollywood life in the United States. See:

At least one member of Congress is doing something about it.

He is Rep. Jason Smith (R-Missouri).

Below is Congressman Smith’s letter of protest to British Ambassador Karen Pierce:

I suggest that you contact your Congressperson and Senator to ask them to voice their protests to the British government.

To find and contact your representatives, go here.

Actor Laurence Fox creates new political party to fight the woke Left

Something is happening in Britain that isn’t in the United States.

Prominent Brits are saying they’re sick of the “woke” culture of the Left.

First, it was journalist, TV personality and self-identified liberal Piers Morgan who, on the Ben Shapiro Snow last August, launched a stinging critique of the contemporary Left, calling them “unbearable”.

Then, at 2020 Golden Globes awards in January, comedian and host Ricky Jervais lambasted the Hollywood crowd for their arrogance and hypocrisy.

The latest is actor Laurence Fox (you may know him as Inspector Hathaway in the Lewis TV series that was aired on PBS Masterpiece Theater).

Fox became an instant fave of conservatives when he said on BBC’s Question Time last January that Meghan Markle is not a victim of racism (see “Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen”), followed by Fox appearing on the cover of The Sunday Times to tell the world that he does not “date woke women”.

Note: Urban Dictionary defines “wokeness” as “self-righteousness masquerading as enlightenment” and “being constantly offended”.

For saying that, and wearing a MAGA cap for a media interview, Fox was vilified. See “Feminists see something very sinister in men who don’t want to date ‘woke’ women”.

Now, Fox has started a new political party called Reclaim, to fight the woke Left.

In an October 6 interview with Spiked, Fox explains why:

Fox: I don’t feel either of the two main parties are addressing the issues at all. I feel Labour is actively swallowing critical race theory. It is actively making culture worse. You have Keir Starmer literally taking the knee, and then metaphorically taking the knee with what he said in terms of structural inequality and racism, and in terms of seeing racism everywhere, which I think is one of the most false and divisive things that a politician can do to try to garner votes. And then, obviously, you would have expected the Conservatives to be very hot on these issues. Things like the right to speak freely and think freely and not have your thoughts policed are very personal issues to a lot of people. But the Conservatives don’t seem to be taking it on board.

There are many brilliant movements and pressure groups around that do fantastic work, such as the Free Speech Union, the Academy of Ideas and Don’t Divide Us, which are all fantastic. But how do you really make politicians sit up and listen? I believe you do that through the ballot box.

One thing that has struck me is the viciousness with which the left bullies people of all kinds for having what are essentially very moderate opinions. Aside from questions concerning perjury, laws on speech must not go further than stopping incitement to violence. But that is not what is happening at the moment….

We are switching the whole judicial system on its head. People are being tried by social media, and that can have really awful effects, such as what happened with Caroline Flack. I feel it has escalated beyond the point where we can ignore it….

I am aiming to appeal across party lines. I don’t need to be politically affiliated to want to promote an open public space through full protection of the fundamental freedoms of speech, expression, thought, association and academic inquiry, and to stand in opposition to laws and other measures which undermine those freedoms.

spiked: Are you worried that getting involved in the ‘wrong’ side of the culture war will damage your career?

Fox: I have certainly been told that it has had a very profound effect on my acting career….

If you risk making yourself unemployable by having the wrong view, I can understand why people would just parrot the views that are accepted – especially those who have children.

I feel like I have no option but to take this thing forward, because someone has to do it, and I seem to be well-placed to do it in terms of my platform, my profile and my views, which I think are actually pretty moderate.

spiked: How have members of the public responded to the party so far?

Fox: We have had so many positive reactions. Ten thousand people have registered on our website, and we set up a Twitter account a couple of days ago which has 15,000 followers already. I get stopped in the street relentlessly, and people thank me for doing it. I get a stack of letters every week, and endless messages of support, all of which is encouraging.

I think these issues bother ordinary people much more than those with a profile. The right to communicate and to be able to tell your own story affects everybody.

We need a high-profile person with Laurence Fox’s courage here in the U.S.

UK Telegraph: Pedophiles communicate with each other via pizza and cheese emojis on social media

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Wikileaks did something that politically- and morally-compromised mainstream journalists no longer do — reporting the truth.

Wikileaks published a batch of John Posta’s emails. Podesta is a longtime Democratic Party operative who was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign at the time, and a former White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, and White House counselor in the Obama administration.

In Podesta’s 2,060 emails, there are 149 references to “pizza”73 references to “hot dog”85 “cheese”78 “pasta”41 “sauce”84 “ice cream” and 47 “walnut” — all in very bizarre contexts that have nothing to do with food.

See “Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails

Law enforcement authorities and online Urban Dictionary-like resources have identified the words in the Podesta emails, such as “pizza”, “hotdogs”, “cheese”, “sauce”, “pasta”, “handkerchief” and “map”, as code words for child sex trafficking. Writing in code provides pedophiles a cover story in the event their communications, such as the Podesta emails, are discovered.

The uproar from Wikileaks‘ publishing of the Podesta emails became known as pizzagate.

Those in the Alternative Media who reported on pizzagate were derided by the MSM as tinfoil hat-wearing nut-cases. Even Gateway Pundit chickened out on reporting on the 2017 Pizzagate March on D.C., while Alex Jones actually apologized for InfoWars‘ posts on pizzagate, calling it “fake news”.

Well, the derided tinfoil hatters are now vindicated.

Mike Wright reports for the UK Telegraph, August 28, 2020, that online safety groups warn that cheese and pizza emojis are being used as a secret code by pedophiles to communicate on social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter.

More than 100 volunteer parents have banded together to hunt down and report social media accounts using the pizza and cheese emojis to signal they are sharing sexualised images of children, in a bid to evade detection by the social media giants.

Members of the parents’ group told The Telegraph they often found such accounts sharing images of children taken in family settings like on the beach, which appeared to have been stolen from the parents’ social media profiles.

The parents’ group was started by a 27-year-old executive assistant in London who goes by the name India, and has asked The Telegraph not to use her surname.

India stumbled across the child image accounts on social media. The accounts often signaled what they were doing by using cheese and pizza emojis, to represent child porn (CP). India then created ProtectPD pages on Twitter and Instagram, dedicated to naming accounts that are sharing child images, so her followers can report them en masse to Instagram and Twitter. She said:

“I couldn’t just scroll past it as at the end of the day these are people’s children. There are pictures of little boys aged five or six on the beach in their swimming trunks and chances are that picture was taken by their parents on their holiday. Somehow that picture has gotten into their [pedophiles’] hands.”

John Carr OBE, an online child protection expert who formerly sat on the UK government’s Council for Internet Safety, described the phenomenon as “horrifying” and said social media giants had to do more to hunt down and delete the child-porn accounts. He said:

“It is understandable that parents want to share pictures of their children with friends and relatives, but if their social media accounts are not private these photos can be seen – and taken – by anyone. This is about parents not thinking because they are not aware that these bad guys are out there doing this.”

Spokesmen for Instagram and Twitter told The Telegraph that they have a zero tolerance policy for child sexual exploitation content, that they are committed to doing everything they can to keep child porn off their apps, and that they “remove accounts that share or solicit this type of content and report them to the police.” Blah, blah, blah.

The discovery of pedophiles using pizza and cheese emojis to communicate with each other on social media prompted a former UK government child safety advisor to warn parents to avoid sharing images of their children openly on social media in case they are stolen and traded online.

The above image is the childish pizza-pie bracelet that then-Vice President Joe Biden gifted Barack Obama on his 55th birthday. (See “Obama spent $65,000 to fly ‘pizzas’ & ‘hotdogs’ from Chicago“)

Race car driver upset by oceans and forests being destroyed

Last October I did a blog post about British F1 race car driver Lewis Hamilton. He was intent on lecturing us about going vegan to “save the planet.”

His exact words: “Adopting a vegan diet is the only way to truly save our planet.”

Apparently participation in an industry that contributes total yearly carbon emissions of 256,551 tons (not including fans’ transport to races) doesn’t contribute to the planet being destroyed.

So Hanilton has to ignore facts and continue on with his virtue signaling.

On August 13 he tweeted the following, while cruising around in his gas-guzzling boat:

“Took the day off on Tuesday, a day for myself and no phone, no training, just me and Roscoe on the water. I had time to reflect on where we are in the world today, everyday I see something upsetting happening, people being abused, people suffering… /1

oceans and forest’s being destroyed. 2020 is such a heavy year. But it gives me hope seeing people come together, fighting for justice and doing more for our planet and the people in it. I’m sending you all positive waves, keep pushing and inspiring those around you /2”

Hypocrite!

It was all for nothing: No evidence COVID-19 lockdown actually works

Below are excerpts from Sherelle Jacobs, “The lack of evidence lockdowns actually worked is a world scandal,” The Telegraph, May 28, 2020. I supplied the bold and color emphasis:

We have detonated the global economy to pursue a lockdown experiment that may not have worked, according to the latest evidence. This diabolical revelation should be a world scandal….

The broadcast media is more interested in scalping lockdown flouters than questioning whether shutdowns have served any useful purpose. World-class studies that suggest lockdown did not alter the pandemic’s course are mysteriously vanishing into internet obscurity on first contact with the official narrative. Our greatest minds have resorted to unpicking the issue on offbeat YouTube webinars. No global NGO or lockdown country has launched an investigation into their impact.

This is a scandal so overwhelming that there is only one good place to start: the evidence as it stands…. [I]n Britain, infections may have peaked a week before lockdown, according to Prof Carl Heneghan of Oxford University, with daily deaths in hospitals plateauing a fortnight after it was introduced. We are not an anomaly: peak dates across Europe also seem to confound the official theory.

Don’t just take my word for it. A University of the East Anglia study posits that Europe’s “stay-at-home policies” were not effective. A JP Morgan investigation suggests the virus “likely has its own dynamics” which are “unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures”. But such insights have failed to induce even the vaguest quiver of serious mainstream debate.

Nobel prize-winning bio-physicist Michael Levitt has fared little better, despite his valiant one-man effort to expose the inconvenient truth about Covid numbers. He has claimed, sensationally, that the modelling that justified lockdown made the fatally incorrect assumption that Covid-19’s spread is continuously exponential. In fact, his research has found an uncanny pattern across numerous countries whereby the virus grows exponentially for two weeks, before slowing seemingly irrespective of lockdown and social distancing measures.

In a more sensible world, such findings might stir thoughtful debate about whether Covid was burning out naturally before lockdowns began. It might also prompt a global effort to put other pieces of the puzzle together – for example, establishing whether there is a correlation between countries with high death rates and countries that failed to protect care homes. (They make up half of fatalities in Belgium, which has suffered the worst Covid death toll per capita).

But as the holes in Project Lockdown multiply, its advocates flap incoherently to keep their theory afloat…where the goal of lockdown lurches from “flattening the curve” to staving off a “second wave” – to, apparently, averting the first wave’s “second peak”….

See also doctor says COVID-19 virus “clinically no longer exists” in Italy, but the government still urges residents to continue practicing social distancing and other safety measures.

5 reasons why Prince Harry is stupid

Prince Harry, 35, is not the brightest bulb.

Reporting for The Guardian on May 10, 2005, Steven Morris wrote:

Former teachers of Prince Harry at Eton College helped him cheat in his A-level art course because he was such a weak student, a tribunal was told yesterday.

One teacher allegedly prepared explanatory text to go with images produced by Harry while a second helped the prince insert the lines into a project.

The head of art at Eton also allegedly completed work for Harry which was later published in newspapers around the world.

As the prince began army officer training at Sandhurst yesterday, one of his former teachers, Sarah Forsyth, was claiming that his art exam result, which helped him get into the elite college, was flawed.

Ms Forsyth told an employment tribunal, where she is claiming unfair dismissal, that the evening before a moderator was due at the school to look at the students’ AS-level work – which counts towards their A-level grade – she was asked by the head of art, Ian Burke, to prepare text to go with some of Harry’s work for his Expressive Project, in which a pupil is required to explain some of his work and relate it to that of great artists.

Ms Forsyth said she was “profoundly shocked”, adding: “I was concerned that this was unethical and probably constituted cheating.”

She told the tribunal at Reading, Berkshire: “I assumed I had been asked to do this because Prince Harry was a weak student.”

Ms Forsyth, 30, said Harry’s failings as a student were well known at Eton and she had been told that a teacher who marked Harry’s entrance exam had been “desperate” to find points for which he could award marks.

She claims she was too frightened to disobey Mr Burke and did what was asked of her….

In a witness statement put before the tribunal, Ms Forsyth claimed Mr Burke finished off work for Harry which “featured in the newspapers”.

She did not specify in the statement which pictures she was referring to, but in June 2003 a photograph of Harry with two of his screen prints inspired by Aboriginal designs and colours was released to the media.

Prince Harry and Eton, of course, vehemently denied he’d cheated, but we now have clear evidence that he indeed is IQ-challenged.

Reason #1:

On New Year’s Eve, Harry was pranked by two phone calls from Russian hoaxers, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, pretending to be Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager whom the Left idolize as their new climate change guru.

How stupid must you be to believe that a man with a Russian accent is a Swedish teenage girl?

Reason #2:

In one of the phone calls, Fake Greta told Harry mining companies close to evil orange-man President Trump were exploiting a tropical island, Chunga-Changa.

Fake Greta: “Have you heard something about Chunga-Changa’s struggle. We’ve been there it is really terrible, have you heard something about it? Interesting.”

Harry: “I actually haven’t because I don’t really look at news anymore. That starts my day badly and finishes my day badly. I think it’s a very good idea.”

Chunga-Changa is the name of a Russian children’s song about a tropical island that doesn’t exist and where it is summer all year.

Reasons #3 & 4:

Harry was also pranked into promising to help move penguins from Belarus “to their native land, the North Pole” (The Sun):

Fake Greta: “Now we are dealing with an issue of moving penguins from Belarus to their native land, the North Pole. About 50 penguins were stuck at customs in Belarus. That’s terrible. And we are searching for some ship maybe to transport these poor penguins to their native land.”

Fake Greta’s fake dad: “North Pole…perhaps you have some contacts for people who can help us?”

Harry: “I do have a man who deals with the North Pole. He is in Norway, he can help as maybe he knows all the right people. I’ll give you the contacts on email.”

To begin, Belarus is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It has no sea port with ships that can transport the “poor penguins” to the North Pole or anywhere.

Then there is the matter of the penguins. The North Pole is not penguins’ native land. Penguins are native to Antarctica, which Harry should know because in 2013, he had participated in a charity trek to the South Pole. 

Reason #5:

In the hoax phonecall, Harry also trashed President Trump, calling Trump stupid, with “blood on his hands” because of his stance on climate change. He told fake Greta (Daily Mail):

“The mere fact that Donald Trump is pushing the coal industry is so big in America, he has blood on his hands. But Trump will want to meet you to make him look better but he won’t want to have a discussion about climate change with you because you will outsmart him.”

Although Harry thinks President Trump to “have blood on his hands” and his grifter wife Meghan Markle called Trump a misogynist and the pair had said they didn’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office, that didn’t stop the opportunists from leaving Canada to settle precisely in Los Angeles.

Page Six reported on March 27, 2020, that the couple left their $14 million bolthole in Canada where they were couch-surfing and took a private jet to the Los Angeles area (where they are now couch-surfing in a mansion owned by director-producer Tyler Perry) after President Trump and Canadian PM Trudeau announced the borders were closing amid the coronavirus crisis.

Reportedly, the pair may need to ask Trump for “special help” for security protection because the UK taxpayer will no longer fund their guards following their decision to step down as senior royals. Had they remained part of the British royal family, they would have been entitled to protection from U.S. Secret Service agents during their time in America.

See “Prince Harry and Meghan quit Royal Family” and “Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen

How stupid must you be to trash-talk the President of the very country you’re moving to, from whom you hope to secure protective guards.

President Trump lost no time in saying no to U.S. taxpayers paying for the toxic duo’s security protection. He tweeted on March 29:

“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

There is a petition that U.S. taxpayers not pay for Harry and Meghan’s $20 million security. The petition is aiming for 5,000 signatures; 3,539 people have signed. To sign the petition, go here.

There was also a White House petition to deny Harry a residency visa. Alas, the petition has received only 460 signatures and is now defunct.

Hypocrite: Epidemiologist whose computer model prompted coronavirus lockdown policy had trysts with married woman

Neil Ferguson, 52, a quintessential beta male from the looks of him, is an epidemiologist and professor of mathematical biology at Imperial College, London, UK, and head of the college’s COVID-19 Response Team..

Ferguson specialises in the patterns of spread of infectious disease in humans and animals. He creates mathematical models to study and make policy recommendations on infectious diseases, including the ebola virus, HIV, swine flu, SARS and smallpox.

In February 2020, using statistical models, Ferguson sounded the alarm that cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) were significantly under-detected (only 10% detected) in China, and that travellers from China had started chains of transmission within the countries they entered, including the UK.

In March, Ferguson gained widespread media attention when his COVID-19 Response Team published projections that the UK could face hundreds of thousands of deaths from COVID-19 without strict social distancing measures, but that with “strict social distancing, testing and isolation of infected cases”, deaths in the UK could fall to less than 20,000. The article concludes that “Many more deaths will be averted through ensuring that [non-pharmaceutical] interventions remain in place until transmission drops to low levels.” By “non-pharmaceutical interventions” is meant “case isolation, the closure of schools and universities, banning of mass gatherings and/or public events, and most recently, widescale social distancing including local and national lockdowns.” (See “Report 13: Estimating the number of infections and the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions on COVID-19 in 11 European countries“)

A government advisor on the UK’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) committee, Ferguson wielded great influence on the UK government’s policy on infectious diseases. As Toby Young of Spectator USA puts it:

The professor of mathematical biology at Imperial College London seemed to have bewitched successive prime ministers, blinding them with his brilliance. Whenever a health emergency broke out, whether it was mad cow disease or avian flu, there he was, PowerPoint in hand, telling the leaders of the United Kingdom what to do. And they invariably fell into line.

On March 23, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was persuaded by Ferguson’s COVID-19 mathematical models to impose a lockdown on the whole uk population, banning all “non-essential” travel and contact with people outside one’s home, and shutting almost all businesses, venues, facilities, amenities and places of worship.

So it is the height of hypocrisy and deceit that Neil Ferguson chose to violate the lockdown policy he himself had recommended by having his married mistress, Antonia Staats, 38, visit him at his London home during the lockdown. Ferguson is also married, albeit “separated,” with one son.

According to the Telegraph, Staats made her first visit to Ferguson’s London flat on March 30, twelve days after Ferguson, on March 18, announced he’d tested positive for COVID-19 and that he was self-isolating in his flat.

On April 4, despite having violated the lockdown rule Ferguson told listeners of “BBC Today” that the lockdown must continue at least till the end of May because that would “risk the epidemic getting worse.”

The following week, on April 8, Staats made a second visit to Ferguson’s flat, despite telling friends she suspected that her husband had coronavirus symptoms.

A native of Germany, Staats is a rabid leftist who campaigned against Brexit and for an end to fossil fuel subsidies. She has been praised by Al Gore and Martin Schulz, the president of the unelected EU Parliament. Staats lives with her husband, an academic, and two children in a £1.9 million ($2.35 million) house in south London, and reportedly has an “open” marriage. She told friends she does not believe her and Ferguson’s actions to be hypocritical because she considers their two households to be one.

Two days later, on April 10, again speaking on “BBC Today,” Ferguson insisted that the lockdown must continue, despite the “huge” economic costs, social costs, personal and health costs.

Like Staats, Ferguson also believes he did nothing wrong. He told the Telegraph that he’d “acted in the belief that I was immune, having tested positive for coronavirus and completely isolated myself for almost two weeks after developing symptoms.” He allowed that “I deeply regret any undermining of the clear messages around the continued need for social distancing,” and insisted that the lockdown “is unequivocal, and is there to protect all of us.”

On Tuesday night, May 5, Ferguson admitted he had made an “error of judgment” and resigned from his government role on the SAGE committee.

Not only is Neil Ferguson a hypocrite and adulterer, his computer models have been found to be grossly inaccurate.

As recounted by Toby Young, Ferguson’s computer model predicted that if the Swedish government continued to pursue its “reckless” non-lockdown COVID-19 policy, the Swedish healthcare system would be overwhelmed 40-fold. By May 1, 40,000 Swedes would die of COVID-19, and 96,000 would die by the end of the year.

As of the time of this post, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Sweden is 25,265, and the number of COVID-19 deaths is 3,175 — 36,835 fewer deaths than what Ferguson’s computer model had predicted. (Worldometer)

Meanwhile, Neil Ferguson has become synonymous with hypocrisy.

If you search for “Neil Ferguson” on Wikipedia, you’ll be directed to Wiki‘s entry on “Hypocrisy”. LOL

Obesity increases risk of dying from COVID-19 by nearly 40%

A major problem with policy-making concerning the COVID-19 Wuhan coronavirus is its novelty, which means we just don’t know a lot about this virus.

Since its outbreak in China last year (most probably as early as October 2019), scientists worldwide have been furiously studying the virus, while more people have been and are being tested for the virus. As a result, we now know that the death rate of COVID-19 is much lower than we’d been told — 0.3-0.4% instead of 3.0-4.0%. (More on Covid-19’s inflated death rate in a post to come.)

That being said, a mortality rate of 0.3% to 0.4% is still 3 to 4 times more dangerous than the seasonal flu, also a coronavirus, the death rate of which is about 0.1%. Professor Calum Semple, a consultant respiratory pediatrician from Liverpool University, said the mortality rate of Covid-19 is similar to those hospitalized with Ebola:

“Covid-19 is a very serious disease. Crude hospital case fatality rate is of the same magnitude as Ebola. And people don’t get this. If you come into hospital with Covid-19 disease and you’re sick enough to be admitted, crude case fatality rate is sitting somewhere between 35 and 40 per cent. And that’s the same case crude case fatality rate for someone admitted to hospital with Ebola…. [P]eople need to…get it into their heads. This is an incredibly dangerous disease.”

You probably already know that the most vulnerable population are (CDC):

  • The elderly (65 age and older).
  • Those living in a nursing home or long-term care facility.
  • Those with underlying medical conditions (“co-morbidities”) of diabetes, respiratory diseases including COPD and (moderate to severe) asthma, hypertension and serious heart conditions, chronic kidney disease (undergoing dialysis), liver disease, and immuno-compromised. Diabetes, according to data from several sources, increases the risk of death from Covid-19 up to 50% because it is a major risk factor for the development of severe pneumonia and sepsis due to virus infections. (Medscape, April 28, 2020)
  • Males: a not-yet-published study suggests that the testes/testicles might act as a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 or the Wuhan virus. (Medical News Today, April 28, 2020)

A less publicized risk factor is obesity.

Thomas Burrows reports for The Sun, April 29, 2020, that according to new research on nearly 17,000 Brits with Covid-19 admitted to 166 UK hospitals, the largest study of its kind ouside of China, obesity increases the risk of dying from Covid-19 by as much as 37%.

The obesity trend was not identified in China because fewer people there are extremely fat.

Cardiologist Aseem Malhotra said said UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was so badly affected by Covid-19 because he is “significantly” overweight, and that “slimmer” members of the cabinet, including Matt Hancock, were not hospitalized and recovered much more quickly.

Note that obesity is a causal factor for many of the other Covid-19 co-morbidities — those of diabetes, respiratory and cardiac diseases.

A 2012 study warned that at the rate we’re going, by the year 2030, in 10 years, more than 4 of every 10 (42%) Americans may become obese and 11% severely obese. 

Obesity is more than being over weight. The Centers for Disease Control classify a body mass index (BMI) of between 25 and 29.9 as “overweight,” anything above that as obese:

  • “Normal weight” means a BMI of 18.5–24.9
  • “Over weight” means a BMI of 25.0–29.9
  • “Obesity” means a BMI of 30.0–34.9
  • “Severe obesity” means a BMI of 35.0–39.9
  • “Morbid obesity” means a BMI of 40 or over

BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s mass (weight) by the square of his or her height, typically expressed either in metric or lbs. and inches. This is the formula:

BMI = mass (lb) ÷ (height in inches)² x 703

Obesity being a 37% higher risk for dying from Covid-19 makes the recent bizarre media celebration of obese women like model Tess Holliday and rapper Lizzo even more perverse and objectionable.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in ICU with COVID-19

On March 27, 2020, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, said he’d tested positive for COVID-19, the respiratory disease spawned from the Wuhan coronavirus. He went into isolation after a family member showed symptoms.

Lee Brown reports for the New York Post that cabinet officials were alerted in a video conference about Johnson’s deteriorating condition shortly before the public announcement, with one calling it a “truly shocking” moment.

Yesterday, after 10 days in self-quarantine, Johnson was admitted to the intensive care unit of London’s St Thomas’ Hospital, which directly overlooks Parliament.

Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove said the prime minister is conscious and being given oxygen, but is not on a ventilator and has not been diagnosed with pneumonia.

Johnson’s pregnant fiancée, Carrie Symonds, said she had been sick for a week at home with classic symptoms of the virus, but that she was “on the mend.”

Britain has no official post of deputy prime minister, but Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been designated to take over temporarily. If Johnson could not return to his job, his Conservative Party would elect a new leader as prime minister.

Did you know that, until only 4 years ago, Boris Johnson had dual UK-US citizenship because he was born in New York City to English parents? In 2016, he renounced his U.S. citizenship to to demonstrate his loyalty to the UK.

Here are other political figures who have tested positive for COVID-19:

  • Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla) was the first member of Congress to test positive.
  • Rep. Ben McAdams (D-Utah).
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky).
  • Francis Xavier Suarez, mayor of Miami, Florida.
  • John Bessler, husband of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D)-Minnesota).
  • Prince Charles, first in line to the British throne, tested positive after displaying mild symptoms.
  • Peter Dutton, Minister of Home Affairs, Australia.
  • Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, France.
  • Masoumeh Ebtekar, Iran’s Vice President for Women and Family Affairs.
  • Iraj Harirchi, head of Iran’s counter-coronavirus task force.
  • Quim Torra, Regional Leader of Spain’s Catalonia.
  • Pere Aragones, Catalan Deputy Head of Government.
  • Fábio Wajngarten, Communications Director for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
  • Nadine Dorries, UK health minister.
  • Sophie Trudeau, wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
  • Begoña Gómez, wife of Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez.
