German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Virus as 'A Global False Alarm'

German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Virus as 'A Global False Alarm' | 29 May 2020 | Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report ['Analysis of the Crisis Management'] that challenges the established coronavirus narrative leaked from the interior ministry. Some of the report key passages are:

  • The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
  • The people who die from coronavirus are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation). Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
  • The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
  • A reproach could go along these lines: During the coronavirus crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

Asphyxiation not the cause of George Floyd's death - Autopsy | 29 May 2020 | George Floyd died Monday from a combination of preexisting health conditions exacerbated by being held down by Minneapolis officers, not from strangulation or asphyxiation, based on the medical examiner's initial report.

"The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death."

Connecticut high school sports transgender policy found to violate Title IX; federal funds could be withheld from some local districts

Connecticut high school sports transgender policy found to violate Title IX; federal funds could be withheld from some local districts | 28 May 2020 | Connecticut's policy allowing transgender girls to compete as girls in high school sports violates the civil rights of athletes who have always identified as female, the U.S. Education Department has determined in a decision that could force the state to change course to keep federal funding and influence others to do the same. A letter from the department's civil rights office, a copy of which was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, came in response to a complaint filed last year by several cisgender female track athletes who argued that two transgender female runners had an unfair physical advantage. The office said in the 45-page letter that it may seek to withhold federal funding over the policy, which allows athletes to participate under the gender with which they identify. The policy is a violation of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that guarantees equal education opportunities for women, including in athletics, the office said.
