Excess mortality in the world after vaccination persists

A financial analyst and former portfolio manager for multinational
investment giant BlackRock said in a stunning interview last week
on Real America’s Voice (https://bit.ly/3sG5ofU) “War Room:
Pandemic” broadcast that despite the waning COVID-19 outbreak,
America continues to experience “excess mortality” rates, possibly
due to the vaccines.
“While the COVID pandemic is winding down, excess mortality
remains elevated to the surprise of many executives,” analyst Ed
Dowd told host Steve Bannon. “Some are blaming” a phenomenon
known as “long COVID, especially in the insurance industry.”
He went on to say that funeral homes “were expecting their business
to drop off” but instead “it has not,” Dowd continued.
The analyst said that the top manager of Service Corporation
International, a funeral home company, announced during an earnings
call last week that the firm beat first-quarter earnings expectations
by 10 percent, which was shocking to executives.
According to a tweet, Dowd quoted the executive as saying:
“And again, it’s not just COVID that we’re seeing… This is, these are
excess deaths, levels of mortality that are higher than what we’ve
expected, even when you try to back out COVID.”
Dowd also mentioned that another major funeral home company posted
increased earnings of more than 3.5 percent during the first quarter,
and up a total of 9 percent from the fourth quarter of 2021, both of
which were also unexpected.
“So, the smoking gun at the end of the line in the funeral homes [is]
the insurance companies saw group life death benefits” come down
from the fourth quarter but the levels of payouts are still elevated
20-30 percent beyond expectations, Dowd said.
According to his analysis, all told, the U.S. is still experiencing
a 20-percent rise year-over-year — taking COVID into account
than normal through the first quarter.
At that point, Bannon interjected to ask Dowd his opinion as to what
he believes is taking place — whether the excess deaths are due to
mental fallout from extended lockdowns, whether the vaccines are
causing them, or something else.
“When we saw the all-cause mortality for the millennials, I’m blaming
the vaccine,” Down responded. “You can blame suicides and fentanyl
deaths, but remember, in group life (insurance claims), these are
employed, working-age people that tend not to overdose on fentanyl
and commit suicide. There’s definitely, those things are at play, but
I’ve seen people back out the numbers and they’re still elevated with
excess mortality.”
“And the lockdowns, you gotta remember, that was 2020. We really
haven’t had lockdowns since the end of 2021 or even today, so this
is above and beyond,” Dowd continued. “You know, we’re all hearing
the anecdotes. I have anecdotes in my circle (of contacts)
of mysterious sudden deaths of relatively healthy people. So this
is a national crisis in my mind.”
