Dumbo, the Japanese Elephant
A clear story of stupidity of those who believe in COVID measures and deny 'vaccine' harms.
Japan is dumb.
It’s a shame because I used to love that country. I lived there briefly in the mid 90s and always hoped to return one day.
Alas, now, it’s only second to the US on my reverse bucket list, i.e. places I hope never to visit before I die.
Truth be told, pretty much every country in the world is dumb so, there’s not that much special about Japan, it’s just their turn. Although, even in relative terms, they are really quite dumb. Thankfully, not all of them as some doctors and scientists are finally finding the courage to speak out.
But, let’s start with the smart dumb people. There’s a really good statistical resource called Excess and Exiguous Deaths Dashboard in Japan. It’s sponsored by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan and lists dozens of really well-credentialed academic types on the project, most of whom have Dr as their title.
With an abundance of talent and access to useful data and government resources, it should be without question that they produce decent analysis, right?
The data they produce is top notch. They don’t present it very well but I’ll fix that for them in a short moment. No, they only become dumb when they start interpreting it. I guess that might be a condition of their funding? So, perhaps they aren’t dumb, just dishonest?
If any of them is upset by the way I am disparaging them, by all means, come along and defend yourselves. Prove to us that you aren’t dumb or dishonest.
Anyway, here’s my graphical representation of their data. I’ve done nothing to it at all, except present it clearly. You can peruse their website for their methodologies. They are transparent and very well explained.
In the chart above, I simply plot weekly, observed deaths for Japan and the expected range of deaths according to the source researchers. I have highlighted the anomalies in the data - the stuff that sticks out - with red dots.
Clearly, there are six points of concern (and none of them occur in the year of epidemic COVID):
In Jan 2021, there is a spike in mortality, just over the upper bound of the range of expectations.
Since Jan 2021, the two seasonal nadirs are substantially higher than usual. In other words, mortality levels are raised throughout the season, not just at peak season.
In seasons ending June 2022 and 2023, there are unprecedented, super spikes in mortality, far exceeding expectations - three of them.
Let’s break it down:
In the chart above, I have added the “super” excess mortality, i.e. the deaths that exceed the upper bound of the range of expectations.
I have also added some key dates:
5-Jan-20: an unusually low peak during a period when COVID is known to be circulating around the world (since Sept 2019), well before any mandated, draconian measures are put in place to “deal” with it - the “measures”.
21-Feb-21: start of the mass mRNA experiment. Later than the rest of the world due to the usually circumspect nature of the Japanese people and a very slow start.
09-May-21: significant ramping up of the “vaccination” campaign. Note two relatively small but still apparent spikes in “super” excess mortality subsequent to the two “waves” of the campaign.
28-Nov-21: 80% of the entire population (including children) “fully vaccinated".
02-Jan-22: Japan experiences the largest spike in mortality in over 5 years but only just surpassing the upper bound due to seasonal expectations. Resurgence of jab campaign - boosters. Two months later, a completely atypical second, late-season spike that not only eclipses the previous newly formed high, but registers off the scale when seasonally adjusted.
19-Jun-22: Another resurgence in jab campaign - booster #2. Within two months, deaths are spiking again - most unusually, in the middle of summer.
But, that’s only half the story. We’ve looked more closely at the spikes but haven’t take the higher nadirs into consideration. Let’s take a look at the whole seasons we have to examine that impact:
So, in the table above, we can clearly see that the mortality season 2020 (52 weeks to end of June), resulted in a 2.6% lower than expected tally. This was the year of epidemic COVID.
In season 2021, which caught the impact of the first round of the jab campaign, during which pretty much every adult was “fully vaccinated”, mortality was 1.4% higher than expected, in line with 2018 which was a notoriously bad flu year in much of the world.
In season 2022, which captures the impact of the first round of boosters, mortality is a whopping 5.3% higher than expected.
Season 2023, which captures the second round of boosters, is not yet complete but from early showing, it will easily eclipse 2022.
But why do I say these researchers are dumb?
Well, here’s their explanation of events. Maybe you can see what I mean?
Here’s the problem(s). First, they talk about exiguous1 deaths that result from the COVID measures. But 2020 was already a soft year, irrespective of the measures. And then beyond 2020, there are no exiguous deaths at all. On the contrary, as I have shown, the nadirs are substantially higher. And this is in spite of the fact that the (dumb) Japanese are still doing all the same things that they claimed worked in 2020 but demonstrably fail in 2021, 2022 and 2023...
Japan is no longer the best-performing wealthy nation when it comes to avoiding COVID-19 deaths.
Japan’s long-standing success in managing the pandemic was underpinned by extensive mask wearing, widespread vaccination, an already-healthy population and easy access to health care.
Mostly voluntary COVID-19 measures still linger everywhere in Japan. Most people wear masks outdoors, hotels check temperatures and restaurants continue to place plastic sheets between tables. How they adjust to the reopening will determine the coming infection and death rates, health experts said.
So, in 2023, they were still wearing stupid masks, even outdoors, still checking temperatures and still interacting through plastic sheets like some gargantuan, condom-laden orgy of stupidity. I make no apology - DUMB!
Then, they go on to explain the current tsunami of excess deaths on denial of healthcare and other knock-on effects of the COVID measures.
Whilst I agree that these are a substantial contributing factor (one that is conveniently overlooked all around the world when considering how those measures would also have increased COVID mortality itself), there is an obvious omission of that big elephant in the room.
Only the dumb can’t see it.
