Interview Brad Johnson, Wuhan Flu, impact of smoking and 2nd hand smoking 7 months ago Brad Johnson Brad Johnson it is March the force of 00:03 2020 and I think it’s time for a Wu hen 00:07 flu update but you know I caught an 00:09 interesting headline just a few minutes 00:11 ago thanks to one of us Vlad Tepes blogs 00:13 readers that they’re planning to flog 00:15 people in Iran who were were licking 00:20 mouthing otherwise handling shrines in 00:24 order to whatever I’m not sure what the 00:26 plan was but Iran is planning to flog 00:29 these people and I’m thinking you know 00:31 it would be much better if they made 00:33 them change their last name to shrine 00:35 liquor and you know then my local 00:39 pharmacy it may be ubereats would know 00:41 not to hire these guys which i think 00:43 would be a much better plan than just 00:45 flogging them and the second the second 00:48 point is that the government flogging 00:50 these people is kind of an admission 00:52 that the central doctrine of Islam insha 00:55 Allah or as Allah wills it and so don’t 00:58 worry about what decisions you make 00:59 maybe a flawed flawed way to proceed 01:02 what do you think well I just actually 01:05 get them touching all of that too I 01:06 don’t think there’s any chance at all 01:08 that they will admit there’s anything 01:10 flawed 01:11 so about them about Islam so that’s not 01:13 going to happen and they’ve got to 01:15 actually have kind of a problem now and 01:17 that those videos of them licking these 01:20 shrines and stuff I I comment on it it’s 01:23 hard to talk about it without being 01:24 crude in some way but when they when 01:27 they lick these things it’s not a thing 01:30 where they just like you know touch 01:31 their tongue to it or something and then 01:33 walk away I mean they get in there and 01:35 lick the thing so I mean it’s like all 01:37 around you know it’s a big effort of 01:41 licking it so it’s just there’s just no 01:44 question that it’s a unbelievable way to 01:47 spread germs and a virus so I think it’s 01:50 just going wild there and there’s good 01:52 reasons why so I would kind of set Iran 01:54 aside that this might end up being kind 01:56 of a self-correcting problem as the 01:59 disease weight makes its way around Iran 02:01 and and I would just kind of throw out 02:02 all the data from there because of the 02:04 practices that they have and the 02:06 religious practices and the licking the 02:08 shrines and all that stuff so do you 02:10 think Iran is going to ask for Israeli 02:12 medical help what do you think 02:13 I suspect not so I don’t think I don’t 02:17 think they view that as a requirement 02:18 have medical help but there there’s 02:20 already been at least one senior person 02:22 and I out of it I ran out of the current 02:25 regime and they they do these meetings 02:28 where they talk about the disease and 02:29 then they all crowd around and get a 02:30 photograph together so I mean it’s it’s 02:33 just one of those things where they yeah 02:34 they talk about it they recognize that 02:35 it’s there but they don’t seem to aren’t 02:38 seem to be able to get past the 02:40 restrictions based on the kind of 02:42 fundamentalist Islamic perspective that 02:44 they have so I think they’re among 02:48 leadership and among the government 02:50 people and all that it’s and among the 02:52 you know hardcore religious believers 02:55 those sorts of people it’s just going to 02:57 run rampant among kind of people outside 02:59 of that a little bit less you know say 03:02 Muslim light if you will that aren’t 03:05 quite so hardcore on these things those 03:07 people will probably have a lot better 03:08 survival rate but let me get on to the 03:11 China aspect of this Wuhan flu because 03:13 there’s a couple of aspects of that that 03:15 are particularly interesting I have 03:17 talked about how there were certain 03:19 things I was looking at that made me 03:21 think it was kind of a designer bug that 03:24 had been thrown out therefore perhaps by 03:27 accident perhaps on purpose but now some 03:29 of the data is starting to surface that 03:31 actually makes a lot of sense and my 03:33 feel for it is now that this is this it 03:36 there there may be some the clue there 03:39 was aspects of it this looks like it was 03:41 stolen out of Winnipeg we saw the guy 03:43 arrested at the airport there was indeed 03:45 trying to smuggle out samples from this 03:47 level for lab in Winnipeg that was 03:50 destined for the level 4 lab in China at 03:53 Wuhan now that part we know because of 03:55 the arrests in the airport of the guy 03:57 trying to smuggle this stuff out so now 04:00 what had it been worked on InDesign it 04:02 looks like it was too soon it looks like 04:04 this is just one of the strains that had 04:06 been was being studied we don’t know how 04:08 far along the process it was it looks 04:10 like it was just something that was very 04:12 you know kind of highly contagious sort 04:15 of a bug in this particular case virus 04:18 so what I find interesting out of the 04:21 statistics that we’re seeing is that one 04:23 of the things that really bothered me 04:24 was this high rate is high instant 04:26 of infection rate among adult males in 04:29 Asia and that that environment the areas 04:33 around China in the Asian world if you 04:36 will 04:36 and that was statistically just didn’t 04:38 match it didn’t make sense where you 04:40 have this for example white males of the 04:42 same age and health and all of that just 04:44 weren’t getting infected at those rates 04:45 now one of the things that’s just popped 04:47 out is the smoking rate and there now 04:51 there’s no good statistics out of China 04:52 for example on how many men smoke but 04:54 the smoking rate there is very high 04:56 something along 50% rate or higher of 04:59 adult males who smoked and smoked 05:01 heavily they smoked a lot and they don’t 05:03 tend to have the highly filtered 05:05 cigarettes and all that so they’re 05:06 smoking the the bad boys if you will out 05:08 of the cigarette world for the most part 05:10 so heavy smoking and relating to this 05:13 being able to get sick and have it 05:14 spread then starts to account for some 05:17 of those statistics that we see that are 05:18 a little odd now I would argue it’s 05:21 still not quite enough and so I’m 05:22 looking at the back end of it then why 05:24 are the women not getting it as highly 05:26 you know at any sort of rate that they 05:28 should compare to the men one other 05:30 factor I think has come into account 05:32 that makes me conclude that this just 05:33 happens to be a bug they lost control of 05:35 it they don’t have good controls at this 05:37 Wow Han level for lab and it got away 05:39 from them and that’s all we’re seeing 05:41 nothing beyond that the other aspect of 05:44 that you have to go back a ways and that 05:45 is in in the 80s the World Health 05:48 Organization which we all know is not a 05:50 conservative right-wing any of that sort 05:52 of stuff definitely hardcore left-wing 05:54 and so they’ll they’re what they do 05:56 their practices what they say all fit 05:58 this sort of leftist philosophy and 06:01 schedule and what they’re trying to have 06:02 accomplished so back in the 80s when 06:06 they still did a few serious things that 06:07 were kind of nonpartisan they did this 06:09 huge study on on the effects of smoking 06:12 and of course their goal was to damage 06:14 the smoking Lobby the smoking industry 06:16 and attack cigarettes but out of that 06:19 they found of course that statistically 06:21 if you smoke you’re susceptible to a lot 06:23 of things if you don’t smoke you’re less 06:25 susceptible to those things out of that 06:27 study and they found what was the big 06:30 surprise is they found that secondhand 06:32 smoke exposure to secondhand smoke 06:34 actually made you slightly less 06:36 susceptible than non-smokers so the most 06:39 in danger 06:40 the smokers next were the non-smokers 06:42 and the the group the last group to be 06:45 in the least amount of danger 06:46 statistically worthy people exposed to 06:49 secondhand smoke now since then the 80s 06:51 all of those that study is almost 06:53 impossible to find now because it’s been 06:55 completely erased and eradicated you 06:58 find references to it out there in the 07:01 blogosphere but to actually find the 07:03 study anymore a World Health 07:04 Organization has covered it up they 07:05 don’t want any any of that information 07:07 out there these studies that were done 07:09 on we’re no longer allowed that looked 07:12 at the same information so all of that 07:16 was was greatly surprised and they 07:17 supposedly are the pro science folks but 07:20 they’re not they’re anti science they 07:21 covered all this up suppressed all the 07:23 information out there haven’t allowed 07:24 any more studies to go forward for 07:26 decades then about ten years ago this 07:28 resurfaced they knew they had to beat 07:30 this problem down so they started coming 07:32 out with a lot of things now if you read 07:33 closely I was just looking back at a 07:36 report that came out by ABC a few years 07:39 ago and here’s the tactic they’re taking 07:42 I just want to read this little comment 07:43 to you if I can find it they talked 07:45 about how there’s there’s not it’s not a 07:48 myth that secondhand smoke is dangerous 07:50 and how that it’s something that that 07:54 that you know there’s information out 07:56 there and the words are let’s see if I 07:59 find it in the article the comment is 08:02 that like out of this ABC story that 08:05 smoking the dangers of secondhand smoke 08:07 is not a myth and studies that followed 08:10 non-smokers have lived as smokers found 08:12 some increase in lung cancer and heart 08:13 disease but they studied people who were 08:15 exposed to lots of smoke often shut-in 08:17 with chainsmokers four years in 08:18 claustrophobic situations like homes and 08:20 cars even then some of the studies found 08:22 no effect so that’s how they’re playing 08:24 it nevertheless it’s been enough to 08:26 launch a movement to ban smoking most 08:27 everywhere so that’s how they’re playing 08:29 if they’re saying wow there’s some 08:30 studies that do this but the studies are 08:32 clear secondhand smoke isn’t very 08:35 dangerous for you and may in fact have a 08:36 slightly positive effect now back to the 08:39 rule hand virus that would explain why 08:42 all of these statistics are so skewed on 08:45 the one hand you have the male smokers 08:47 who heavily smoked in China specifically 08:50 who are far more susceptible to catching 08:53 this disease 08:53 because of respiratory issues that they 08:55 have they’re just more susceptible so 08:57 their statistics for being infected go 08:59 way up the women on the other hand don’t 09:01 tend to be smokers and yet they’re 09:03 exposed to secondhand smoke so they have 09:05 a slightly better rate of resistance to 09:08 it so their statistics go down the gap 09:11 then between these two things suddenly 09:13 make sense it comes into focus okay that 09:16 all matches so again now I’ve concluded 09:19 based on what we’re seeing that’s almost 09:21 certainly a a virus that just escaped 09:25 from this level 4 lab in Wuhan that’s 09:27 the epicenter it has spread from there 09:29 and those statistics are just going to 09:31 play out the way they do it’s not going 09:34 to be this horrible dread disease like 09:36 the 1918 version that came out and had 09:38 such a high kill rate it’s going to be 09:40 what it is those groups that are 09:42 susceptible will get sick the youth 09:44 appears to be particularly resistant to 09:46 this or not seeing young people get sick 09:48 in large numbers it’s the old and infirm 09:51 and heavy smokers and people that are 09:53 just in these high susceptible groups 09:56 and if you’re not then the resistance 09:59 tends to be high and that’s why we see 10:01 people go for two and three weeks that 10:02 are infected but don’t even know it 10:04 because they don’t feel it so that there 10:06 is that carrier issue out there but with 10:08 the sophistication for medical treatment 10:10 and diagnose diagnosing the disease the 10:14 virus that exists in the West it’s just 10:17 not going to be that problem the areas 10:19 where we’re going to see it go out of 10:20 control I think China has figured all 10:21 this out they’re starting to get it 10:23 under control of those areas where we 10:24 see these refugee camps like turkey just 10:29 released thousands of refugees out into 10:32 the world and they’re trying to flood 10:34 into Europe and where you see those 10:35 areas and then also in Iran with the 10:38 pilgrimages and the shrines and the 10:40 Licking and all this stuff those groups 10:42 then you’re is where you’re going to see 10:43 the center of this disease and 10:44 unfortunately it’s the people that are 10:47 least prepared to deal with it that are 10:49 going to be most faced with this problem 10:50 and the others in the other countries 10:53 where it’s just we’re not so susceptible 10:55 we’re far more resistant just to begin 10:56 with as well so it’s just not going to 10:58 be that big of a deal I think now a lot 11:01 of the hike that we’ve seen out of the 11:02 left in particular is now pretty well 11:04 debunked well a lot still needs to play 11:07 but this is this is a snapshot of where 11:09 we find ourselves today Brad Johnson 11:12 thank you very much that’s very 11:14 interesting and we’ll really annoy a lot 11:15 of the religiously anti-smoking people 11:18 thank you Click for entire transcript Continue Reading Previous Clip from interview with Brad Johnson at CPAC on the American Thought leaders program.Next SAUDI ARABIA,
