Brad Johnson, Wuhan Flu, impact of smoking and 2nd hand smoking

 

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
