An 800-pound gorilla that is being ignored

Annual reports from a major life insurance company show huge increase in payouts in 2021 compared to earlier years:

Here are the precise numbers for Group Death Benefits taken from Lincoln National’s annual statements for the three years:

2019: $500,888,808

2020: $547,940,260

2021: $1,445,350,949

Why did payouts for deaths go up so massively in 2021?

Deaths from COVID are part of the explanation, but then why were the payouts so much lower in 2020 than in 2021?

Recent survey results provide a possible explanation.

Will there be CDC and government investigations and surveys to understand the results?

Or will the answer be to ban surveys, ban investigations, and suppress death-related statistics?

When it says, “the vaccine”…is there a specific vaccine that’s being targeted or is it being concluded all of them have detrimental side effects?

The surveys and death statistics do not get into that level of detail.

Here is a recent paper that appears to show a higher risk for the Moderna vaccine for myocarditis soon after the shots.

I doubt that the apparent increase in mortality could be explained by myocarditis. There would have to be longer-term effects to get the numbers that are indicated by the insurance data. The effects are on the order of everyone taking up a two-pack-a-day smoking habit.

The vaccines are not the only explanation at this point. There could be long-term effects from COVID or changes in the virus strains that resulted in deaths that are not recorded as COVID deaths.

Why did Lincoln’s payouts for death increase almost 200% in 2021 when deaths increased less than 1% in 2021?

The overall age-adjusted death rate increased by 0.7% in 2021 from 2020.

There’s absolutely nothing in the Google Sheet that explains the methodology behind this “poll” mentioned in the OP in the slightest. It’s just a table of numbers.

Why should we trust it?

Steve Kirsch says that 750,000 people have died from the vaccine.

That would be impossible to hide.

It is an idiotic claim.


My guess is that claims started in 2020 aren’t cleared off the books for a few months and that pushes the ledger into the next year.

You mean there is the risk of drawing an improper conclusion when someone…say a poster on Hannity…cites data in support of a conclusion, but he doesn’t understand a thing about the underlying context in which that data is generated?

Say it isn’t so!

Even more idiotic when you click on the Google sheet that supposedly has the “data and calculations” to support such a “claim”.


Overall, the researchers found an estimated 3,358,814 deaths occurred in the United States in 2020—up by 17.7% from 2,854,838 deaths in 2019.

According to the CDC link, the number of non-COVID deaths in 2021 was

3,458,697 - 460,513 = 2,998,184

The number of non-COVID deaths in 2021 is up about 145,000 from 2019. What happened?

COVID is most likely to kill elderly people who are likely to die from other severe health problems. Logically the non-COVID death rate should go down, not up.

The CDC report is emphasizing total deaths, which are dominated by the elderly and those with chronic health problems. Life insurance claims are coming mainly from workers. Adults who are actively working are younger and healthier than the average.

The CDC data shows an increase in non-COVID death rates for younger people.

For ages 25-34:
The non-COVID death rate was 153.8 in 2020
The non-COVID death rate was 162.8 in 2021

For ages 35-44:
The non-COVD death rate was 232.0 in 2020
The non-COVID death rate was 251.4 in 2021

The same trends are there. The percentage increases are not as large.

Logically no.

When the resources of the health care system are overwhelmed and drained because of Covid, it affects all people who need health care resources.

We went through two years of stressing the health care system to its breaking point. A lot of that stress could have been avoided… especially post vaccine… if there wasn’t a ton of disinformation being spread around.

Seriously, dude- when you don’t know what you are talking about, the prudent thing would be to stop talking.

You have been wrong at every turn when it comes to your crusade against vaccines.

Your choice as to whether you want to keep being wrong.

Yes, there can be other effects.

2020 saw massive lockdowns and heavy loads on a healthcare system that was unfamiliar with COVID.

Why would things be worse 2021 than in 2020?

Because there was a large enough cohort of people who didn’t take the pandemic seriously and believed in the disinformation surrounding the vaccines?

Lots of people died during covid of preventable things, unable to access health care because they were overwhelmed.

Also, lots of people died in their homes of covid and not diagnosed with covid. Particularly in teh beginning when we didn’t have tests and couldn’t easily check for the virus.


Yes, people who have already died don’t matter.

The government is continuing to push vaccines for young healthy people. They just expanded them to toddlers.

The risks from COVID for children are extraordinarily low, any significant risk from the vaccine far outweighs any benefit.

The CDC/FDA could be responsible for the deaths of many times more children than decades of school shootings. Yawn . . .

We don’t know the risks of COVID to children are low. Long term risks could be quite high…up to a third of people of all ages have suffered some sort of long term effects from COVID.

And your last statement is completely without evidence.

You don’t understand data analytics. You need to stop pretending you do.

Could it include the more than 110,000 deaths due to illegal street fentanyl coming across Bidens open border from China? I think it just might as these deaths are not a result of overdose, the cause is poisoning and not the result of prescription grade.

Also the vaccines may not have been such a disaster if it hadn’t been forced and mandated on people without taking in consideration the science of individual medical conditions.

Democrat draconian policies during the Covid19 pandemic and after the pandemic have proven to be very dangerous.

The increase in drug overdose deaths from 2020 to 2021 is HALF of what it was from 2019 to 2020.

So this doesn’t square with your hypothesis.


There not overdose deaths, they are poisonings and that is the big difference between prescription drugs and what is coming over our southern border from China.
