In my family i was responsible for arranging care of the deceased much like you did in your family Karl. At least in the NY Metro area funeral directors are required to notify the Social Security Administration, and they do this immediately, prior to any action on the part of the health department processing the death certificates. It is actually amazing how an extra payment to the deceased's bank account is instantly rescinded once SSA gets the report.

Perhaps there are multiple ways that SSA finds out so that there is redundancy built in, however the NY funeral directors always report. This makes for very current data. Note that i checked with the funeral director family that helped us for generations that this is correct. There is no lag in the reporting, at least in NY.

I have heard of payments going out in other areas for months when such data is not reported, but ultimately it is always figured out and often leads to fraud charges. This is where the lag by the health departments shows itself.

I actually had the letter from SSA in my mailbox, with a postmark THE DAY AFTER my mother passed, literally before the funeral home had retrieved the body!

wow, never heard of that, must be that her state is electronically reporting.

In all of the deaths that i cared for in my family i never got a letter. Usually i called the SSA main number just to verify the status and take care of other things. They always knew before i called and told me that the funeral director reported the death not the health department. NYC what does one expect.

If it helps anyone, for years i always sent a letter and certified copy of the death certificate to the major credit bureaus. Prevents a lot of problems and many attorneys liked my idea and started to do the same.

Damn near every financial institution has a watch list on that "SSN Master Death List" with SSA too. The speed with which various financial entities knew she was dead was flat-out astounding.

Perhaps it was not this way many years ago but it sure as hell is now; this was ~2 years back.

Incidentally May God Have Mercy On You if somehow you managed to get into that file and are not dead! I suspect fixing that could get REAL interesting.

the two last deaths in 2015, i was not in the greatest state. was still watching things so no issues, but had to TELL banks, insurance companies, credit card companies, pension providers, every financial entity involved without exception that they were dead. The only thing that i verified in the first days was SSA and called a pension administrator and left the rest on the back burner for a while as in many months. Neither owed any money or had problems, but their accounts and charge cards all worked until i pulled the lever.

This has been my experience in NY for as long as i can remember. It is why i started the credit bureau inform. It seems that financial entities here do not monitor the database. It is common advice from attorneys to leave things function regarding such for the convenience of families putting affairs in order. I never agreed with this advice. Probably if i never said anything, could have used mom's credit cards and paid them for years. Funny thing is two years AFTER i told the credit bureaus, a major national bank sent a letter that her credit card was being inactivated due to lack of use. Forgot that she had an account with that bank, later found the card, of course zero balance. Obviously this financial institution does not monitor the credit bureau data either.

No kidding. My mother died in 2019. As you wrote, the funeral director notified SSA of her passing. We found out the hard way that if the deceased isn't alive for every last minute of the month that SSA will crawl back the last payment. Mom died on the morning of April 30, the last day of the month. I got her next bank statement and SSA had already grabbed the April payment back.

They put a lot into setting up and maintaining the "SSN Master Death List" automated reporting systems.

I saw some 60 Minutes or other some such a while back about the nightmare it was for people that had been inadvertently put on the list to try to get removed. It screwed up everything for them.

I heard about this study from the Gary Null Show Podcast:

Another mask study that confirms Fauci's study from 2008 about the dangers:

https://pdmj.org/Mask_Risks_Part1.pdf

"Optimal oxygen intake in humans has been calculated in the absence of any obstruction to the airways. The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has determined that the optimal range of
oxygen in the air for humans is between 19.5 and 23.5%. In previous times, before the COVID-19 era, OSHA required that any human-occupied airspace where oxygen measured less than 19.5% to be labelled as not safe for workers.
The percentage of oxygen inside a masked airspace generally measures 17.4% within several seconds of wearing... the ability to sense changes in oxygen
concentration, and to adapt to such challenges quickly. The medulla oblongata and carotid bodies are sensitive to such changes. Both lower ambient oxygen and increased ambient carbon dioxide stimulates ventilation, as the body quickly and steadfastly attempts to acquire more oxygen. As a compensatory
mechanism, inspiratory flow is measurably higher in mask-wearers than in controls.

The question then arises: If inspiratory flow is increased over normal while wearing a mask, is every fiber attached to ones facemask secure enough not to be inhaled into the lungs of the mask-wearer? Is it good enough for a majority of these fibers to be secure? Or must every part of every mask fiber of every mask be secure at all times?

If widespread masking continues, then the potential for inhaling mask fibers and environmental and biological debris continues on a daily basis for hundreds of millions of people. This should be alarming for physicians and epidemiologists knowledgeable in occupational hazards.

Karl,

Extremely well done, to the point, and an AWESOME catch line in there.

"Sorry folks, Social Security doesn't pay dead people, never did and never will"


Even a pea brained liberal could comprehend that 2 minute video!!!

The only way that might make it better for a liberal would be if you would be so kind as to put some "feelz" in there next time!

Thanks!

Social Security payment numbers prove Covic-19 deaths are not raising the overall total number of deaths this year when averaged over the last five years.

The government "does not" pay out Social Security to dead people, therefore using these numbers from the government, to obtain a true total death rate, shields them from being altered.

This 2.5 minute video uses the government's own numbers, the Social Security payments, to prove the Covid-19 deaths are not raising the "average total number of deaths".

Even though the deaths are being falsified and counted as a Covid-19 death, making the other major causes of death columns to be below average, the total number of deaths not rising proves out the fraud being committed with the lies concerning higher than normal death rate, and is being used to destroy the economy and the country.


A) Heart disease
B) Cancer
C) Pneumonia (Flu)
D) Covid-19

You can stack the "D" column with Covid-19 deaths when it was really an A, B or C column death all you want, but when the end of the year total death rate from "ALL" causes remains within the average over five years, then you simply have proven Covid-19 is no more deadly than the flu, and we never have shut down the economy and cities, and locked people in their homes just over the yearly flu.

Spread this short 2.5 minute video far and wide, so the citizens can see the simple and hard factual evidence, and start to push back in a major way.

This video proves Covid-19 is no worse than the Flu. All Governors and Mayors are committing Treason with their unconstitutional mandates, and are enemy combatants to the nation for the deaths and economic damage they are creating and responsible for.

Following along with the theme of this thread, "Calling BS", here's someone "Calling BS" for the need of a vaccine:

FORMER PFIZER CHIEF SCIENTIST wrote..
"COVID-19 PANDEMIC EFFECTIVELY OVER, NO NEED FOR ANY VACCINE"


Quote:
According to an article published in Lockdown Sceptics, Dr. Michael Yeadon, former vice president and Chief Scientist of Pfizer wrote:

"There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I've never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren't at risk from a disease. You also don't set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn't been extensively tested on human subjects."

I saw this from a Johns Hopkins student who studied the reported deaths from the WuFlu and found:

Quote:
in contrast to most peoples assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.


Here is the link:

https://www.jhunewsletter.com/article/20....

Basically we have been bamboozled and lied to since at least April.

The lies will keep coming.

The editorial board of the student run newspaper pulled this article, because is misrepresented the number of deaths from the WuFlu. However, Karl's data from the SSA confirms the original article's data.

My apologies. I missed the Thanksgiving drunken podcast.

Seems like it would be way to easy, to require that before voting, your SSN# must be confirmed to NOT BE on said list (as then checking the main SSN database, to be sure it's a valid number)

Two forms of ID, SSN card and driver ID.
Is that to much to f'king ask.

It is beyond dispute that 4 Supreme Court Justices do not 'care' what the Constitution clearly states and therefore legislate from the bench based upon personal and political opinion. The SCOTUS is the defender of the Constitution which is the bedrock of the Republic NOTHING else matters in the country at the moment without faithfulness to the words of law and bringing those who break law before the court. Trump said he intended to address both sides of the coin ~ Choose SCOTUS nominees who would interpret the Constitution as written AS WELL AS charge individuals with the crimes they committed. He gets a B+ on the heads side of the coin and an F- on the tail sides of the coin.

Naw, not surprising at all @Tsherry -- it came out of their economics department, and then they re-issued it with an "explanation" (basically calling the author full of shit.)

Well, I was going to wake until February, but fuck that shit -- thus, this.

Nobody ever gets away with attempting to forge a check register, and thus nobody does it because they know damn well they'll get caught never mind that the money spent is always real.

A lot of fact in this statement:

Gets back to what Karl says, protect the extremely vulnerable, educate everyone else about their risk and the safety measures they can take. Everyone else live your life because, governments and public health experts cannot stop the spread of a virus.

We knew full well in February and early March that if we did not adopt a sanitarium model for nursing homes and hospitals there was no meaningful way to stop it in those facilities. If you recall I predicted the Minnesota blowup two weeks before it happened when a HUGE percentage of all cases, which were very few in absolute number, were in hospital workers. I said they would get fucked in about 10 days or so -- and they did.

But even so the only real "excess" death that has occurred happened in the first couple of months when certain governors literally crammed nursing homes full of sick people and inoculated everyone else in the building. That's insane, but its what happened, and we've spent the last eight months trying to bury the evidence because otherwise you have a mass-manslaughter event that by any reasonable measure should result in 20,000+ manslaughter charges laid on Cuomo, Witmer, Wolf and other. Even worse is that in PA in particular they knew it as their "health director" pulled h{is/er/its} own mother out of a nursing home to prevent her from being killed by that evil shit's own policy pronouncements.

We're STILL doing a shit job of it in that we continue to refuse to adopt a sanitarium model for those locations and people. That's flat-out nuts but the reason we're refusing is that doing so for infectious disease is both obvious and points back to the general incapacity to control infections in nursing homes and similar that has gone on for a long time; those are basically cages where people get sent to die, and not die nicely either.

Fixing that should have occurred decades ago but nobody's going to go anywhere near it. If you do then a material part of the edifice of fraud in health care comes down around their ears and there's too much money being made.
