MOVCAC – November 2023 Excess Death Analysis – Wood County WV

On September 11, 2001, we all watched in horror as the World Trade Center collapsed in New York City.  Weirdly, the Pentagon was also targeted.  I say weirdly because on September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld, then Secretary of Defense, gave a speech indicating that the Pentagon could not track $2.3 trillion in DOD spending.

9/10/2001: Rumsfeld says $2.3 TRILLION Missing from Pentagon

After the attacks on September 11th, any inquiries into the missing $2.3 trillion were obliterated by the anger and patriotism that comes when a people are attacked.  Instead of providing proper oversight to ensure the money extracted from taxpayers was being spent appropriately, our defense budget grew to allow for our response to the evil Muslim horde now bent on the destruction of western civilization.  On that fateful day, 2,977 innocent souls perished.  In response, we went to war in both Afghanistan and Iraq.  Those wars lasted for twenty years and cost thousands of American lives and trillions in treasure.

Less than 3,000 deaths on 9/11 resulted in $8 trillion in war spending and over 900,000 war-related deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan.

You may be asking yourself what 9/11 has to do with excess deaths in Wood County, WV.

Well, to answer that question we must look at excess deaths in West Virginia as a whole.  As we have discussed extensively in our previous articles (see Democide Ignored as an example), we have experienced a catastrophic rise in overall mortality in West Virginia.  The chart below shows total annual death in our state since 2010:

Data Source: 2010 -2020 data

2021 – 2022 data

NOTE – 2023 data from the CDC is incomplete and not comparable to prior years.

Prior to 2020, WV total death never exceeded 23,500.  In fact, the 10-year average annual death prior to Covid (2010 – 2019) was 22,415 with the largest annual increase in death occurring in 2011 (592).  Since then, our average annual death for the three subsequent years (2020 – 2022) rose to an astonishing 27,480 with the largest increase, compared to the pre-pandemic year of 2019, occurring in 2021 (5,443).

If you doubt that we live in a tightly-controlled totalitarian society, ask yourself why we killed over 900,000 humans and expended over $8 trillion in response to 3,000 deaths, yet when over 5,000 extra West Virginians die in 2021 and an additional extra 4,000 West Virginians die in 2022 our response is silence.

In fact, it is estimated that in 2020 over 56,000 and in 2021 over 70,000 Americans lost their lives to fentanyl.

It’s almost like those controlling our society don’t care about our deaths unless they can leverage those deaths for additional funding for their pet war projects.  Doesn’t it seem a little odd that our response to rising death in the United States is for our defense budget to grow and for us to assist other countries in killing additional humans?  What if the wasted $8 trillion was used domestically to address the issues causing these excess deaths?  What if we used some of that treasure to analyze and understand these excess deaths in our own backyard?

Nah, let’s go kill some brown people on the other side of the planet.

Back to Wood County WV…

With the help of our County Clerk Joe Gonzales, we have obtained detailed monthly death data for Wood County by gender and age dating back to 2015.  Knowing the trend in death at the state level, it is instructive to see how our own county death experiences mirror our state level experience.  We have discussed this in detail in prior articles, yet this issue has found very little attention in our state.  For the next few months, we will be showing our Wood County detail comparing monthly data to the same month in prior years.  For this month, we will look at November 2023.

As you can see in the chart above, from 2015 through 2019 November deaths in Wood County never exceeded 100 – with November 2017 having the highest death total at 98.  Three of the four years subsequent to 2019 saw death totals exceeding 100.  In fact, the average November deaths in Wood County from 2015 – 2019 was 87.6.  For the years 2020 – 2023, this average skyrocketed by 27.57% to 111.75.  And although 2022 saw a return to a number (97) resembling a pre-pandemic November, this still represents a 10.73% increase over the pre-pandemic average.

In 2020, our media, political class, and medical establishment went full-on totalitarian over a flu virus and lied about masks, natural immunity, social distancing, a safe and effective experimental mRNA technology, and the origins of the virus.  Yet we have continued to experience excess deaths.  It is almost as if their countermeasures in 2020 had nothing to do with public health and everything to do with destroying our economy, stealing an election, reducing population, and seeing how far our totalitarian government could go before the people pushed back.

We are normalizing increased death.  It doesn’t matter how one analyzes the data, the result is the same – more people in Wood County are dying.  Is the News and Sentinel telling you about this?  Is Jim Justice addressing this in his senate campaign.  Has Blair Couch and the County Commission looked into this?  We have made the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department aware of this increase in death numerous times in the last eighteen months.

Life expectancy for Americans has been declining since 2020.  In fact, as reported by the CDC, the two-year decline in life expectancy spanning 2020 – 2021 was the largest decrease in 100 years.

Life expectancy at birth in the United States declined nearly a year from 2020 to 2021, according to new provisional data from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). That decline – 77.0 to 76.1 years – took U.S. life expectancy at birth to its lowest level since 1996. The 0.9 year drop in life expectancy in 2021, along with a 1.8 year drop in 2020, was the biggest two-year decline in life expectancy since 1921-1923.

How is this not front-page news every day?

Our Founding Fathers thought that life was such an important part of why governments are established that they included it as the first of the unalienable rights governments are created to secure:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Declaration of Independence


If our government wishes to kill us off with barely any attempt at hiding it, and we as a free people accept this through our acquiescence to their protocols, rules, and mandates that result in these deaths; I guess we have volunteered to be members of their death cult.

I pray that before I finish a full year of these analyses, we as a people rise up and throw off the totalitarian chains of these democidal maniacs and institute new government that actually reflects the Constitution as written and allows our country to again be the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!
