How To Lie With Statistics

In 2020, Bill Gates, who in our house I refer to as Thanos, recommended the book, How to Lie With Statistics." Darrel Huff wrote it in 1954. It gained popularity again in 2020 when media outlets like the New York times and the Wall Street Journal gave it a thumbs up. Huff wrote, "There is terror in numbers. And nowhere does this terror translate to blind acceptance of authority more than in the slippery world of averages, correlations, graphs, and trends."

Every Pubic School took AWARD MONEY TO TEST, MASK and VACCINATE KIDS for COVID and they participated in the acceptance of blind authority and Government Control under the illusion of safety.

Then, the PVPUSD and other School Districts throughout the State of California, willfully engaged in discriminatory and dangerous policies that target unvaccinated students, staff, and parents to make life more difficult for them. And, they are still steering the sinking Titanic full throttle into the iceberg with no signs of course correcting for their erroneous errors in judgment.

Our Schools accepted a science-fiction agenda to force gene therapy vaccine trends that violate the United States Constitution, The GINA ACT and multiple Education Codes, and the Civil Rights Act (medical discrimination).

The PVPUSD District was very precarious by taking over 15 million dollars in award money to use COVID-19 testing to push vaccines onto our little kids. Receiving award money from State and Federal funds to promote vaccines on school campuses compromised their integrity and jeopardized our children's lives.

Demanding that the unvaccinated teachers, staff, and athletes show a negative COVID test once a week to prove they aren't sick is unjust and deplorable treatment, especially given that we know the science.

The science shows that vaccinated people can still catch and spread COVID, so why are unvaccinated staff and students mistreated and forced to give up genetic and medical privacy rights?

The LIE being told by The United Teachers Los Angeles and other Politicians is that indoor masking is necessary for staff and students because students under the age of five are not eligible for vaccination. Now that the indoor mask policy is being lifted, they concluded that the weekly testing program through the end of the school year is still necessary. In our local district, PVPUSD, testing is not mandatory however, the District is using tactics of Peer-Pressure, gaslighting and manipulation to convince children it is their duty to prove they are not sickly before returning to school campuses after Spring Break.

There is no evidence that testing stops transmission or that there is a need for testing based on a risk to benefit analysis of the data.

According to The Journal Of The American Medical Association, in 2019, there were 73 million children aged 0 to 17 years living in the United States. Children represent 22% of the US Population. The push to vaccinate children has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with profit.

The overwhelming amount of evidence shows COVID-19 does not pose a significant threat to most children.

Fooling someone terrified of numbers and floating viruses is easy. And White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki knows exactly how to do it. When The Florida Surgeon General recommended kids do not get vaccinated for COVID-19, she went on the counter attack to get shots in little kids' arms. She accused the Surgeon General of spreading Conspiracy Theories and then she said, "We know the science. We know the data." She went on to deliver the terror by stating, "We know from the data that unvaccinated teenagers are three times as likely to be hospitalized" if they get COVID-19 than vaccinated teenagers."

But anyone who has a healthy amount of critical thought would ask,


According to the American Academy of Pediatrics Weekly Data Report, "Almost 12.8 million children have tested positive for COVID-19." Case numbers are gathered through a data supply chain. Local Schools serve as part of that data supply chain and are required to report all positive cases to the Health Department. When Schools host on-site testing, they report the positive cases to the County. The County uses a Data Processing system known as Redcap. Individual businesses, Schools, and anyone can report a cluster of cases at The Health Department even allows for anonymous tattletales to turn in anyone they suspect might have the sniffles or a business owner who is not enforcing operation COVID-19.

Of the 12.8 million positive COVID cases in children. .1% to 1.5% resulted in hospitalization. But the CDC recently updated that data stating that they didn't use the right algorithm for their data....OOPS! That's a big glitch and it tells us if you start with the wrong equation you can't possibly come to the correct conclusions. But let's pretend unvaccinated kids have a three times higher chance of being hospitalized with COVID, as Psaki said. No matter how many times we look at the data, COVID doesn't pose a significant threat that warrants any more human control measures and public health orders.

We don't have the data to determine the exact number of children who died with COVID because no child died from only COVID. We have data that tells us that COVID was not the main culprit of death in the .0% to .01% of total deaths in children and teens.

According to the data, the main cause of Hospital Visits was not COVID, but it was:

  • cancer

  • Respiratory distress

  • obesity

  • diabetes

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • suicides

  • heart disease

But since the Hospital also forced kids to take a COVID test, the propaganda machine used that data to inflate COVID numbers and take them out of context. And, just like the media recently corrected their lies about Hunter Biden's nasty laptop, the media corrected their lie about the total COVID-related deaths.

After two years of terrorizing parents with the thought of impending doom, the CDC finally fixed their data earlier this week, which reduced the death tallies in all age groups, including children. In a statement to Reuters, the health agency said it made adjustments to its COVID Data Tracker's mortality data on March 14 because its algorithm was accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related.
