The Census Bureau dragged its feet but finally delivered their summary of the 2020 Census to Congress, together with the new apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives and votes in the Electoral College. The following image from Wikipedia shows the official new counts of representatives to the several states, which takes effect as of the 2022 elections.
The map is color coded to show states whose House delegations either grew (green) or shrank (pumpkin) since the previous Census in 2010, effective for the elections from 2012 through 2020.
I went through the apportionment calculations based on the official tallies for 2020, and they are correct – so far! One week ago, the Census Bureau released a follow-up report: “U.S. Census Bureau Releases 2020 Undercount and Overcount Rates by State and the District of Columbia”, whose summary you can read here:
Officially, this is the “Post-Enumeration Survey”. I call this the “oops” report. In it, they acknowledge substantial overcounts and undercounts of the state populations. The miscounts that are statistically significant are as follows:
Overcount: Delaware (+5.45%), Hawaii (+6.79%), Massachusetts (+2.24%), Minnesota (+3.84%), New York (+3.44%), Ohio (+1.49%), Rhode Island (+5.05%) and Utah (+2.59%).
This announcement appears to imply that the original “official” numbers on which the new apportionment was based are incorrect. It is a simple matter to produce the new, presumably correct numbers. The size of the change is large enough to change the apportionment of House seats and Electoral College votes for some states.
Taking into account only the statistically significant changes, I find that both Florida and Texas are owed one more seat (over and above the additional seats they earned in the map above), and one seat is removed from each of Minnesota and Rhode Island.
If we include all the changes, statistically significant or not, then in addition to the two seats transferred as above, another seat is transferred, from Colorado to Tennessee. The additional seat transfers appear on the following map. Again, these transfers are in addition to the ones implied by the map above.
The “oops” report contains new population estimates for the states, but they do not match my calculations of the correct numbers. Curiously, when I worked out the apportionment based on the new “official” numbers, it happened to coincide exactly with the original apportionment for 2020. In their view, the massive overcounts and undercounts to which they admit have no bearing on the apportionment of representatives.
I find this rather suspicious, and believe it should be investigated at least by Florida and Texas, which seem to be owed one more House seat, and one more electoral vote, each. I tweeted at the governors of both states, but have received no reply yet. They may have grounds for a lawsuit. At a minimum, they are owed an explanation by the Census Bureau.
Here are some new graphics to share with your friends and relatives who are eager to get their fourth injection. The first compares the most serious adverse events after CoVID injections to non-CoVID vaccines of all sorts combined since 1988. Birth defects for non-CoVID vaccines total 198 to date, just below the threshold of visibility on the chart.
The second compares the ratio of serious adverse events per million population following CoVID injections to that following all other vaccines combined, using the geometric mean to represent a typical year. The first bar in each pair shows 2021; the second bar shows 2022 up to May 13. The data table at the bottom suggests that myocarditis-pericarditis in 2022 will exceed the already high levels of 2021.
The third shows the control chart view for the operations manager. Z-scores outside the red dashed lines, at -3 and +3, signify trouble. All adverse events signal an extreme event in 2021, and most of them signal another extreme event in 2022. The lower level in 2022 represents the year up to May 13, but they all can be expected to climb in the coming year.
The fourth compares the average age at death for all people in 2019 (blue) to CoVID-attributed deaths up through March 27, 2022 (green), and CoVID injection deaths through May 13 (red). While CoVID-attributed deaths happen at a higher average age than the population (thus not reducing life expectancy), CoVID injection deaths happen at a lower average age than the population (thus they do reduce life expectancy). This last number has been slowly decreasing, indicating younger and younger patients are being affected.
The fifth shows the onset interval from CoVID injection to death. While data above 9 days is grouped together into larger bunches, I estimate the average time to death at 33.95 days. This last number has been slowly increasing, indicating a growing willingness of the public to acknowledge the deadly effects of the injection.
The sixth shows the sex ratio of CoVID injection deaths stratified by age group. From birth through 17 years and 80 years and older, there is very little difference between the two groups. From 18 to 79 years of age, however, there are drastically many more deaths among men than among women.
Hello, friends. It has been a while! Long time, no blog, so to speak. I am bursting with data, analysis, news, and I can’t keep it from you any longer. We have a lot to talk about in this world: plague, war, famine, abortion, borders, elections, education, the decline of the West, and so on.
I am going share my graphics and links with you over the coming weeks, but no longer every day. I made a promise to someone here to focus on home and work. Let me say briefly that this blog is seen by many people other than regular commenters, including a household member – so nothing disrespectful should be said about them – ahem – a word to the wise…!
We have spent the last three months focusing heavily on health and wellness, and learning that this is a multi-dimensional goal. In my studies, I have found that the (Asian) Indian model of the self is the most complete, refining the traditional triad of body-heart-mind. In Indian teachings, there are seven levels, each important for total health: survival, relational, appetitive, emotional, expressive, mental, and spiritual. Neglect any of these at your peril.
I have substantially expanded the links section at the bottom of the blog. Please explore these resources. There are new resources on relationships, new resources on the many powerful links between mental health and physical health, and a whole new section with resources on Jewish spirituality, that I hope will be nourishing for adherents of all the Abrahamic faiths.
I had intended to feed you links to some 600 or so browser tabs I opened in the last few months, but you won’t be surprised to hear that my poor browser couldn’t handle the strain, and crashed a few weeks ago. I am improving my well-being in part by slashing the number of must-read websites I study daily; and we turned off our television and talk radio a long time ago. Nevertheless, our friend Nitzakhon is being very productive; I subscribe to his writings at two websites, and I encourage you to do the same:
I try to live up to my avatar’s motto: “logical”. I don’t always succeed, but I try. I try especially hard to come to conclusions only based on evidence, not on wishful thinking or propaganda. Both wishful thinking and propaganda – especially propaganda promoting wishful thinking – are flying thick and fast in discussions of geopolitics in the past week.
“Russian Strikes Targeting US-Run Bio-Labs in Ukraine?” The included map shows 15 alleged biolabs. What a great idea – bombing an alleged biolab… Putin cannot be that foolish.
I have also come to accept the Democrat claim that pro-Russian trolls play a large part in online discussions (in addition to the pro-Chinese trolls), for example claiming that Putin will complete the alleged Q mission of exposing the deep state. It is hilarious to see Vladimir Putin lauded as the savior of the white race by carrying out a war against alleged Ukrainian Nazis – when the audience for such an appeal carries an obscene nostalgia for Hitler in the same role. (And those alleged Nazis elected a Jewish president with support by 72%!) Two dictators who “save” whites by killing whites? Ah well, national socialists and international socialists – not much difference, after all.
After my previous post with graphics on international power rankings, and considering the problems created in the last several years around the world, I have decided that the world would benefit from a partition of America, China, and Russia. The margin of this blog contains several maps of a New America. China should let Tibet (Xizang, Qinghai, Gansu), East Turkestan (Xinjiang), and Inner Mongolia go, and divide the rest along the Yangzi River. Russia should be divided along the Ob-Irkutsk River. American borders should be enforced zealously.
“Russia Has Attacked More Than a Dozen Towns as Ukraine Government Pledges ‘All-Out Defense’” Suddenly, Putin becomes the best recruiter for NATO in decades!
“Yes, Tucker, There Is a US Security Interest in Ukraine” No Americans are fighting there in American uniform, so please, no straw man arguments. Some people are horrified to find that there is corruption in Ukraine. There is also corruption in Russia, and in America. So what? The map below depicts the highest ethnic Russian concentrations in yellow. Why is the entire country being bombed?
This threat explains why countries are interested in joining NATO in the first place.
Brave woman. I suspect the soldier is not enthusiastic about his mission.
“Russian troops enter Ukraine’s second city of Kharkiv and fierce fighting breaks out after Putin was said to be ‘raging’ at stalled invasion: Ukrainians obliterate Chechen special forces column of 56 tanks outside Kyiv and kills top general“
The original tweet by Dr. Peter McCullough was deleted by Twitter. Twitter is conspiring in crimes against humanity, and have the blood of millions on their hands. “Alden et al, Lund University, Sweden, confirms one of our worst fears. The exogenous genetic material coding for the dangerous Spike protein is reverse-transcribed into the human genome; possible long-term constitutive expression/synthesis of disease promoting/lethal Spike.” Hat tip Nitzakhon.
There can be no doubt now that Vladimir Putin is trying to reconstitute the Soviet Union. He is on record as stating that the fall of the Soviet Union was a disaster. That was a rare setback in the centuries of Russian expansionism. He has a strong influence on Belarus, and has stolen parts of Georgia and Ukraine earlier. Today we witnessed a blitzkrieg like the German invasion of Poland. This was completely unnecessary if his goal was to acquire only the Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk) in eastern Ukraine. He is clearly attempting to overthrow the government of Ukraine and strip of them of any and all military capability. I am no fan of Ukraine, but I am revolted by the pro-Putin cult on the far right.
By the way, the Russian stock market fell by one-third in one day. Great work, Mr. President.
“Gravitas Plus | Explained: The Russia-Ukraine crisis” This is an excellent explanation of the history of these countries from Indian news source WION; the presenter, Palki Sharma, is knowledgeable and intelligent. 9.5 minutes. Highly recommended.
This is not about Donbass (the small region at the right of the map).
Using data on gross domestic product, population, and area, I created a statistic that measures the potential power of nations. Here is a first pass at the results, in the form of a map and a pie chart. In the map, the most powerful nation is dark blue. Less powerful nations are in shades of green, heading to pink at the other extreme. It must be emphasized that nations do not always manifest their full potential power, depending on their cultural priorities.
Is the Russian war against Ukraine an invitation to irredentism worldwide? “Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada should start worrying“
Also found on WION, this news item about research done at Australia’s Monash University regarding the effectiveness of an anti-parasitic drug against CoVID: “Australian Scientist: Anti-Parasitic drug could help cure pandemic Coronavirus” THE VIDEO’S DATE? April 5, 2020!!! Why was this suppressed???
Dr. Pierre Kory: “The Disinformation Campaign Against Ivermectin – JAMA’s “Diversion”“
“‘Stroke’ is 11,361% more likely to be suffered as an Adverse Reaction to the Covid-19 Vaccines than the Flu Vaccines per Number of Doses administered” How can doctors remain silent??? Other than the well-known dissidents, are the rest soulless?
Dr. Malone follows up on that interview further with Steve Bannon, using the phrase “smoking gun of scientific fraud“. He got a sardonic laugh out of Bannon when he said that the retired Dr. Collins is now “whispering in Brandon’s ear”.
A friend sent me this article. I could not drag my eyes away from the employee pictured at the top of the article, in fascinated horror. “Some Companies Ditch Annual Raises and Review Worker Pay More Often“
The People’s Convoy website. I wish them well. I hope they are prepared for a long prison term in the District of Corruption without access to Bibles, the Bill of Rights, lawyers, edible food, or bodily integrity. I still think that a general strike is the better option. They can’t arrest you for staying home.
More from Bayou Renaissance Man: “Fascism comes to Canada. Next stop: the USA.” “…the powers that be in the USA are no more willing to tolerate this level of civil disobedience and protest than Justin Trudeau and his jackbooted thugs were prepared to tolerate it in Canada. They have to crack down on it, or watch as a groundswell of popular protest builds up until it overwhelms them.”
“Trudeau-Style Tyranny Is Already Here” “As freedom-lovers justifiably recoil at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s crackdown, Americans worry it could happen here. They’re too late. It already has.”
“The Nation Isn’t Divided, the Left Is Just Too Sick to Deal With” Both can be true. The nation is divided; the left is more numerous than you think. And they are nasty. This statement by KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov reminds me of many blogs by Nitzakhon: “Exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures, even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crushes his b***s then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragic [sic] of the situation of demoralization.”
Daniel Greenfield: “The Left Goes Full Orwell” ‘”Freedom,” warned the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which is funded by the Trudeau government, is a word that has “become common among far-right groups.” To prove its point, the CBC quoted Elisabeth Anker, a George Washington University prof, who claimed that freedom is a “slippery concept” and that those on the right want “violent” freedoms that reject being “bound by norms of equality” or “norms to remedy inequality.”‘ And I know the type that will take the assertion of “experts” over the evidence of their own eyes. They are called leftists.
Victor Davis Hanson: “The Gathering Storm in the West” “…those who smear the truckers are mostly of the zoom and laptop class. Their chief agendas during the last two years of crisis were sheltering in place to avoid contact with anyone, while zooming and skyping to maintain and boost their already generous incomes. Few like Trudeau ever wondered how the elite remained fully employed, but rarely present at work—much less why millions of others were expected to scoff at the virus and come physically to work, while their incomes often dived or ended due to government lockdown policies. The muscular classes enjoyed no such exemptions. Their kids went to public schools that were shut down or required masks. Parents lost incomes as they stayed home to watch children that tenured teachers would not teach. Truckers had no such margin of safety or security, but were out among the public delivering food, fuel, clothing, and the appurtenances of the Western comfortable lifestyle. In our current inflationary spiral, they earned a bit more, while inflation made them poorer, while those they served earned far more. The truckers remind Western audiences that modern progressivism equates muscular labor and hourly wage compensation with a sort of Neanderthalism. That is, the unfortunate clingers supposedly never quite understood globalization, much less how an 8-billion-person market rewards those who type on keyboards and, in relative terms, punishes the supposedly less aware who physically deliver, fix, make, and repair things.” Fantastic!
“The Responsibility of Intellectuals 2.0” “Are you as a member of the well-educated Western elite class prepared to explore the possibility that members of the sociological cohort to which you belong are capable of highly organized evil and deception rooted in a deep disdain for the core humanity and inherent dignity of all people? Are you open to imagining that people—to borrow a phrase much-loved in certain circles— “who look like you,” live in “nice” neighborhoods like you, and want all the markings of the good life for their children like you, are also capable of monstrous deeds and the propagation of extremely damaging herd-induced stupidities? Do you ever think of using the knowledge of history your prestigious education might have afforded you for something other than establishing favorable comparisons with the past that prop up the idea of Western man’s triumphant march of progress and, of course, your sociological cohort’s starring role within it? “
