State Audit: Gretchen The Witch Whitmer's Government "Undercounted" Nursing Home Deaths By 30% -- Or Perhaps As Much as 40%

"Undercounted."

Whoops!

Whoopsie!

Say, didn't we just go through this in New York...? Didn't Andrew Cuomo also "undercount" (whoops!) nursing home deaths by right around 40%...?

Is that the number they jointly agreed they could get away with?


Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's administration undercounted the COVID-19 deaths in the state's long-term care facilities by 30%, according to a state auditor general report reviewed by Fox News.

The report, which is expected to be publicly released on Monday, is likely to renew criticism of the Democratic governor's performance during the pandemic.

Michigan state Rep. Steven Johnson, a Republican, told Fox News Digital in a Thursday phone call that Whitmer is "well known" for her executive order "to place COVID-positive patients into nursing homes."

I'm not being hyperbolic: I think they were all on the same phone call coordinating their response. Cuomo, Whitmer, Murphy, and Wolf.


"And when we were looking into this to see just how deadly that policy was, the nursing home death numbers we received from the department weren't including everything," Johnson said, confirming the number in the report was 30%.

Which is what Cuomo did.

Johnson said there are "some serious questions that have to be asked" about the alleged undercounting and that "it does appear the people of Michigan were misled as to just how many nursing home deaths there were" due to Whitmer's policies.

Which is what Cuomo did.

"Seeing that it's actually 30% higher is quite significant -- we're talking about thousands of lives that were not initially included in the department's count," Johnson continued.


"Thousands of lives" is the same magnitude of the number of deaths that Cuomo covered up. I think something like 15,000.


The Michigan House Oversight Committee chairman also said that the committee "plans to hold hearings on this in the near future."

Unbelievably -- or perhaps inevitably -- Whitmer used the exact same dodge to "undercount" nursing home deaths that Cuomo did.

When a nursing home patient finally got so sick that he finally got sent to the ICU -- and then died -- Cuomo decided that wasn't a nursing home death. That was an "ICU death."

And Whitmer claims the same thing -- once she's gotten you so sick, due to her policy of cramming covid-positive patients in your room with you, that you're finally sent to the ICU with little expectation that you'll ever come back, she says you're no longer a resident of the nursing home.

You're expected to be a resident of A Coffin, and thus not a resident of a nursing home under the law.

Elizabeth Hertel, the director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, claimed the auditor general's report was inaccurate due to the analysis not using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definition of a long-term facility COVID death.

...


"Residents not expected to return to the long-term care facility are excluded from the count.
MDHHS has always required long-term care COVID-19 deaths be reported consistent with this standard set by the federal government," she continued.

She means: People who are not expected to return to the nursing home because they are expected to DIE are removed from the list of "nursing home residents" to lower the numbers of "nursing home deaths."

Which is exactly what Cuomo did.

The.

Exact.

Same.

Numerical.

Fvckery.

Come on, are you telling me they all didn't conspire and share their #DeathHacks together in a conference call?


The number could be higher, however, with some reporters saying the number of undercounted deaths could be north of 40%.

"Three in 10 [bodies] went uncounted, according to the auditor general," journalist Charlie LeDuff told Fox News Digital in a Thursday email. "When added to the state's total, death in Michigan's long-term care facilities are in fact 42% higher than are being reported, which makes Whitmer's Michigan no better than Cuomo's New York."


Whitmer refused to comment.

Bitch should lawyer up.

She's a murderess.

But most states pay a lot for Medicare (it eats up about half of each state budget), and killing off a bunch of old folks (and then getting paid by Uncle Sugar for ICU deaths from Covid) is a two-fer.

Yes. IIRC, Cuomo had announced in January 2020 that he intended to give free healthcare to illegal aliens. No way he could afford that without reducing costs elsewhere, and you know who are really expensive patents? *wink, wink*

Wayne County (Detroit and suburbs) is a Democrat machine county. They can manufacture all the votes they need to win. Western and Northern Michigan are pretty solid conservative/Republican.
If the corruption in Wayne County could be held down or even stopped, Republicans might actually take control of the state.
But of course, Hogmartin moved out of Michigan, so maybe not. Alton Jackson is still there, though.

States that followed the common sense/CDC normal guidelines on not returning infected people to nursing homes.

What were the comparative fatality rates between the two kinds of policies, in both nursing home residents, and in that age demo overall?

85 Inslee was in on it as well.

They were killing a ton more oldsters faster than they expected, and in a higher profile manner - and this is the critical part, they were doing this while still arguing to keep flights open from China and banning testing not run by the CDC. THAT is why these numbers were initially pencil whipped.

Remember, the first phase of this was a combination of throwing the borders open and monkey-wrenching any containment efforts to ramp up as many cases as possible. The second phase was switching to all freakout, all the time for the general election and later authoritarian ends.

These were the sorts of numbers I was telling people here in May 2020 that everyone blew off.

90 Did Michigan give immunity from civil suits to the nursing homes like NY did when Gov. Nipple Rings started his geriatric killing spree?

Because New Jersey agreed to a settlement the other day, in which it's going to pay $53 million to the families of 119 elderly veterans who were living in state-run facilities, who got covid and died due to inadequate infection control procedures in the homes.

With so many dead and so many millions to be gained in contingency fees, personal injury lawyers are going to be circling nursing homes like sharks smelling chum in the water.

Let me guess: the hospitals did not count them as hospital deaths because they considered them to be nursing home deaths, resulting in them not being counted as CCP Virus deaths by anyone. Except the families.

Apparently, our response to Russian aggression in the Ukraine should be to globalize the war by attacking Russia in the Arctic thousands of miles away from the Ukraine.

Biden is really going to risk nuclear war to improve his popularity, isn't he? At a minimum, anyone living in Alaska should be checking their bomb shelter arrangements...

Alexander Vindman is also rooting for war too, of course:

2) Arm Ukraine with defensive lethal aid (air & coastal defense, electronic warfare, & anti-armor; 3) coax Sweden & Finland into initial talks on joining NATO; 4) legislate sanction to snap in as soon as Russia escalates; 5) consider NATO (not U.S.) deployments to west Ukraine.

A handful of positives for the lung rot in 2020 but zero deaths. Several of the positives were treated in house and survived. Until mom went into skilled nursing in Oct 2020 I followed the numbers and then quit charting them. They seemed to swing upward for positives and a few deaths based on the quality of the home. One home isn't always like another. If you can afford quality, we could you have a better chance of surviving. Poor and/or Medicaid you're screwed.

150 neverenoughcaffeine, thanks. Well just as with other influenza-like illnesses, C19's mortality is concentrated in the infirm elderly (though the skew towards that demo, and away from general population, is more dramatic). So one expects a lot of mortality in nursing homes, just as is the case every flu season.

I was just wondering if someone knew of analysis that compares mortality rates in such facilities between states with different policies. Kerpen was on this general topic early on, but I long ago gave up on following it in any detail, for various reasons.

Not quite. The wind shifting here is that some of the nursing home deaths were *too early*, and others were *too late* because they came after docs in other states got their nursing home deaths to a fraction of the initial amounts due to figuring out the CDC was full of shit on treatment.

In places like NYS and IL they were throwing young homeless with COVID into nursing homes; in other places, they were running alternative treatment protocols and sealing off wings with sheets of plastic.

168 rhomboid. I'm guessing your search for an answer would be futile. Each state and it's idiot administration did things differently, no consistency in reporting. To my mindset this is the one place where the Feds could have helped. Give the states a template and let everyone report in the same way. I followed a handful of states for several months. Very little consistency. OH was fairly detailed even though they have a shit governor and had a moronic public health czar at the time.

Getting control of the Dardanelles has been a Russian objective for centuries. Western Europe has typically been trying to help them achieve that rather than opposing it for most of that time. Why we should care about that now is a serious question. Russia having the Ukraine in the past was insufficient to achieve that goal.

It's true that there's a disastrous non-uniformity in some stats and reporting standards. But often those can be "adjusted" back to being pretty comparable.

In any case, the comparative metric I laid out is the one that's actually important, and tells the tale.

But again, the relentless attachment to the key false premise in all of this - that a prevalent highly infectious virus of this nature can be contained, or managed, short of true sterilizing vaccines or highly effective treatments - is sacrosanct. Especially if its application is useful in attacking generally repugnant and disastrous public figures.

237 Rachel Bovard, who is attractive though a little scrawny for my taste, makes a good point. She says the GOPe House leadership is already screwing the pooch. They mistake hate of Biden for love of Republicans, and they also think they just need to sit quietly by and let the Democrats continue to self-immolate. She points out, this is not the lesson Trump taught:

Trump doesn't remain the most popular Republican in the party due to some coercion or bullying or mind control. He remains popular with the Republican base because of his willingness as president to speak directly to what was threatening people every day. Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, has exploded in popularity for the exact same reason.

Republicans would be wrong to think that voters are flocking to them in 2022 because they've presented a clear and compelling vision for the future. Even political neophytes can see that Republicans are winning not on their own merits, but because Democrats are massively imploding in a spectacle of tone-deaf, racist woke-splaining overreach, unabated COVID power grabs, and legislative incompetence.

They want to destroy your school age children, make them believe they can change their gender (without parents permission) and teach them to be racist. They've made many of them suicidal or clinically depressed with their overreach the last two years. Finally, when you get old, they want to kill you with their ignorance and force you to take medicines you don't want or treatments you don't need. Then hide it. They are hideous, pernicious, evil people.

That's largely because the GOP are cowards and never fight back. They let Democrats pummel the people and do nothing substantive to fight back. It's pretty clear that Democrats are at war with most of the country, and most Republicans have their thumbs up their asses and spout more platitudes then Kevin McCarthy trying to sell reverse mortgages. Until someone in the GOP has the temerity to grow some stones and turn the hammer back on Democrats, they will carry on and continue to kill us.

318 Until someone in the GOP has the temerity to grow some stones and turn the hammer back on Democrats, they will carry on and continue to kill us. The only way you win a war of attrition is by stacking more bodies like cordwood then you opponent, and convince them that battle is futile. We can only return to a normal, balanced relationship when that happens.

I would disagree. GOPe officeholders typically come from either political families, business execs/investor class, or climbing the ladder types. For the most part, they don't care or actually despise middle and lower class constituents that have to work for a living.

GOP officeholders relate much better to the donor class which is to the left of their constituents normally. See Mitt Romney as a classic example--the 47 percent writeoff, severely conservative, etc. All of these were also reflected by McCain such as hobbits, build the dang wall, etc. They see their own constituents as stupid, possibly racists, nativists, clinging to guns and religion, etc. while they believe themselves to be enlightened statesmen.

320 Because. They. Could.
Because there IS NO globull warmening.


Even if there was, it would be beneficial to human flourishing.

Can't have that. It must be 24/365 misery and suffering - because they are broken, so must everyone else be.

321 My husband used to talk about a funeral that he went to, for the son of one of his Russian workers. The son died of a drug overdose. It was very ritualized and the mom tried to hold onto the coffin, when they started to lower it into the grave.

We have problems dealing with death because we don't really have the customs for handling it. It's a shame because that's really when you'd like to be able to just follow what everyone has always done.

323 Diogenes,

Will pray for your friend Harry and for his successful heart surgery. May the Lord guide the mind of the surgeons and nurses and all others assisting with the procedure.

325 Much like what happened in NY, a "field hospital" of sorts was set up in a convention center (Cobo Center, now called TCF center, I think, they keep changing the name). 1000 beds installed, intended to be used for recuperating Covid patients who didn't require full hospital care. Only a few patients were treated and instead the nursing homes had to accept them. Before the first wave of Covid was over the temporary hospital was dismantled. The whole useless exercise cost a couple of million bucks from what I recall.

Waste & Stupidity. There will be no controversy around Whitmer. She is a Dem, and considered a rising star, and the Michigan AG is a pal, unlike Cuomo, whose job was craved by the NY AG until he had to bail.

326 This smiling blonde in a sweater is able to smile because her aged parents are not in one of the depraved blue hellholes that murdered their elderly on behalf of their medical industry lobbyists and in pursuit of their own evil objectives:

328 >>>She's a murderess.

Acted recklessly with a depraved indifference to life with an action she reasonably knew would likely cause the death of a person or persons, that resulted in the death of a person or persons without a specific intention to kill them. That's Man 1. Now if she had any animus or intention for that outcome that's murder 1.

She knew the disease was highly contagious.
She knew the elderly had a high risk of death if exposed.
She knew it takes special isolation to prevent the spread of disease in any close quarters living situation.

If she made no attempt to verify special isolation could be performed by long term care facilities (likely she was warned in writing along with verbally many times they could not) she is culpable at the minimum of Man 1.

We have plenty of customs. We just reject them all because they either have a religious connotation of hope for salvation, resurrection and a life to come. Along with lots of niche culture observances. My family still does wakes. I'm lucky I survived the last one.

330 She's running for re-election

Campaign ad against her:
Split screen:
On left hand side, places shuttered by her insane orders (like, pictures of aisles with seeds for sale wrapped in Yellow police tape),
On the right hand side: pictures / video of dead bodies being taken out of LCTFs

Which LCTFs? Whichever ones give the most to Whitmer / least to the Republican candidate

Voice over: While Governor Whitmer was blocking the rest of us from having lives, she was at the same time killing the residents of Long Term Care Facilities

At every point she did everything wrong, and we paid

Exactly. The funeral Mass is a formal ritual that does just that. The familiar prayers and Eucharist, plus a sermon that is done by a calm priest reduces the emotional level of the participants, especially the family who are partly numb and very worn out.

A luncheon celebration afterward is a chance for the family to greet relatives and friends, tell stories, laugh and release tension.

333 FYI RE the 30% vs 42%:

70 is 30% less than 100;
100 is 42.8% more than 70

So that's the same amount of undercounting.
