The Society of Actuaries studies death patterns in the US. This information is used by life and health insurance companies and others who need to know how long people might live and what they might die from. So 2020 becomes an interesting year and here is the latest report from SOA on 2020. (SOA Report) The analysis is somewhat hindered by incomplete data for the important categories of suicide and drug overdoses. First of all, from 2000 to 2019, US mortality rates, expressed as deaths per 100,000 population steadily fell and the population aged, creating ample opportunity for a lethal respiratory pathogen. In 2020, the mortality rate was 830.5 per 100,000, up 16% from 2019. CV-19 was so bad, this must be the worst death rate in a century, right, but guess what, that is back to the same rate in 2003, less than 20 years ago. A lot of frail vulnerable adults died.
If you excluded CV-19 deaths, we still had a rise of 4.4% year-over-year in mortality. Now there are those who say maybe we missed some CV-19 deaths, but given the attribution method, it is far more likely that we over-counted CV-19. And when you look by age and by cause you see the real truth. The terror campaign killed a lot of young people. For non-CV deaths the highest increase was among people aged 15 to 44, and they weren’t dying of CV-19. Missed health care, overdoses and suicide were the causes. Deaths from heart disease, which have shown dramatic declines every year for two decades, were up by 3.4%, deaths from diabetes, liver disease and hypertension increased over 11%. Drug overdose and homicide deaths were also much higher.
Here is how dramatic the impact of non-CV-19 deaths was in younger age-groups. For those aged 5 to 14, deaths increased by 2.2%, of that 1.5 percentage points was non-CV-19. Ages 15-24, a 20.4% increase in deaths, 18.7 of those percentage points were non-CV-19, or over 90% of all the increase in deaths. Ages 25-34, a 23.5% increase in deaths, 19.7 of those percentage points were non-CV-19, again over 90%. Ages 35 to 44, 24.1% increase in deaths, 16.9 of the percentage points were non-CV-19. The terror campaign and lockdowns killed a lot of young adults and children, far, far more than CV-19 did.

I assume the insurance industry lobbyists have good pull in DC. Are they strong enough to force a random audit of death certificates in each state (Lisbon style) in order to blow up the death count fraud and keep their actuary tables legit ? I’m sure the hospitals who took the fraud payments for lying on death certs would be glad to give the money back. Maybe they can set up a payment structure back to the families of the patients they killed by refusing treatment as per their administration’s direction.
I am certainly very aware of and thankful to all of the people who’ve perhaps put themselves at risk to help disrupt the mania that governments generated pushing a global vaccine upon us. But as will all experiments, data final catches up to idealism. I think it’s time to reflect on what we’ve allowed to happen to us and put the brakes on this experiment. I find the timing of the vaccine ‘roll-out’ very suspicious (late winter/spring) when we all knew that the virus would naturally collapse. When you add herd immunity after 18 months of infections, there is no honest way to validate the effectiveness of this experiment. Please just encourage people to do their own research and stop claiming that this cocktail is ‘safe’ !
Thanks for the update.
Thought you MN’s might like this one. Might be old news for you locals 🙂
Interesting book and interview.
