And not because of Covid.
Don’t take it from me. Take it from the good folks at Service Corporation International, “North America’s leading provider of funeral, cremation, and cemetery services” - handling 450,000 corpses* a year.
(*not their word).
Service Corporation’s earnings boomed in 2020 and 2021, thanks to Covid. Funerals are a solid but slow-growth business, and the trend toward cremations hasn’t helped. But between 2019 and 2021, SCI’s earnings per share more than doubled, from $1.90 to $4.57.
At first, SCI worried that growth was what it called “pull-forward.” In other words, because Covid mostly killed people who were close to death anyway, more deaths in 2020 and 2021 would just mean fewer later.
Lucky for Service Corporation and its investors, pull-forward isn’t turning out to be a problem. Americans are still dying at rates well above normal, even as Covid becomes a minimal part of business this year.
(Death! It’s looking up! From SCI’s May 5 presentation to investors:)
On Wednesday, Service Corporation reported its spring earnings - another banner quarter, with almost $1 billion in sales and $135 million in profits. As Tom Ryan, the company’s chief executive, told investors and Wall Street analysts:
I think that COVID cases on a national basis… it's just not material to our numbers. So like we tried to point out at investor day, I think we're experiencing -- we're servicing elevated numbers of consumers. [Or, in English, having more funerals and cremations.]
Ryan went on to offer several potential explanations for the growth in death:
And you'd say, OK, what is that, Tom? Well, we've mentioned a little bit, we think there's still excess deaths. We think we can correlate it with lack of healthcare, people probably drinking too much, smoking too much, driving too fast, depression and access to mental health.
The problem with these explanations… is that none of them make sense. Smoking and obesity take decades to kill, and drinking usually takes a decade or more. Overdoses are way up and traffic accidents are higher too, but not nearly enough to account for the overall rise in deaths.
(SUBSCRIBE, would ya?)
Delays in health care would likely have only a tiny effect - and it would have likely occurred during the epidemic, not months later, as people suffering heart attacks and strokes refused to go to hospitals for fear of catching Sars-Cov-2.
One telling piece of evidence on this front comes from Australia and New Zealand, which both locked down extremely hard and saw below normal death rates in 2020 and largely normal rates for most of 2021. Yes, locking down nursing homes is terrible for the people inside them and probably contributed to the deaths of residents. But those lockdowns have basically ended now.
Gee, I wonder what could be leading to all the excess non-Covid deaths we’ve suddenly seen in the last 12 months, not just in the United States but all over Western Europe and Australia too? Something definitely changed near the end of 2020, I just wish I could remember what…
Oh well. The mystery continues!
THE COVID-19 FRAUD and WAR ON HUMANITY
" Make no mistake, we are currently being assailed by a worldwide fraud of such scale and malevolence that it threatens our very existence as we know it on this planet " - Dr Mark Bailey and Dr John B
Pfizer Documents Show FDA Knew of Death Risk
This jogged my memory of a story that should’ve gotten more coverage but didn’t: a year after Biden took office, FEMA started offering $9k to any family for funeral expenses if someone had died of Covid. .You could claim up to four or five family members or assist that many in helping with the claims. This was insane, in light of the fact we weren’t even allowed to have funerals. The kick in the pants hardly any documentation was needed; everyone was being listed as dying of Covid so nearly every death was eligible . You didn’t even have to be an American citizen. Apparently, no one thought this was weird at all.
There's an attack on free speech. And it's not necessarily by government, but Big Tech, the mainstream media, Big Pharma, and academia are also in on it. You cannot say anything bad against vaccines. You cannot say anything doubting mask efficacy. You cannot suggest that the PCR test gives up to 98% false positives. You cannot suggest that the covid death count is overcounted because it blurs the distinction between dying with a virus and dying from a virus. You cannot suggest that covid is a minor threat to the vast majority of society. You cannot suggest that lockdowns did not help. And it doesn't stop with covid-19: You cannot suggest that there was election fraud in the 2020 election. You can't suggest that Jan 6th was a mostly peaceful protest of election fraud. You cannot suggest that transgender is a mental illness. You cannot suggest that monkeypox is largely a disease among sexually promiscuous gay males. You cannot suggest that climate change is neither real nor a risk. As far as the narrative goes: The vaccines work. Masks are an effective method of disease prevention. Get PCR tested often because a positive test means you are sick. If you test positive for C19 and then later die, C19 killed you. Covid-19 is a significant death threat to everyone, even the young and healthy. The 2020 election was the most secure election in history. Jan 6th was an insurrection and an attempt to overthrow this country. Monkeypox is a public health emergency for everyone. If we don't get rid of fossil fuels, our health and existence is at risk. Inflation was just transitory and despite two quarters of negative GDP growth, we're not in a recession. So yes, in response to another commenter: we are being assailed by worldwide fraud of huge scale and malevolence.
A friend's college friend had her 29 year old son die last week from stage 4 colon cancer. I am 65 and have never heard of anyone in their 20/30s die of colon cancer. I have heard the "vaccines" have been causing cancer to come back.
Apparently the funeral business is also being subsidized by the feds. FEMA will pay up to $9K per funeral, and up to $36K per family, if you're willing to list Covid as the cause of death. Thus far, FEMA reports paying for 400,000 funerals, at a cost of $2.5 billion. There are no income limits for eligibility.
Think this may have influenced more than a few families to agree to cite Covid as the cause of death, even if they suspected other factors played a role?
I have lost count on the number of people within a degree of me that have died in the last 12 months. That is no BS.
One day last summer my business coach had to cancel as his best friend had just died unexpectedly. One of my employees left early as the same had happened to his uncle. And I learned from my sister that one of her patients fathers had died (she sees adolescents so this was a young man). The following day I took another employee to the ER as we thought he was stroking out as the entire left half of his face went limp. Just rapid onset bell's palsy. Pretty typical injury for a 45 year old carpenter. Happens all the time.
Of course, we also lost my wife's best friend. That has been reported on here.
At least the shots work though. At getting people sick. Another employee of mine is out as of yesterday with his second round of covid. Yeah, he is 3x vaxed.
Wait a minute…….I know I ‘m a little late to the party and may not get the subtleties of a lot of stuff, BUT, you guys ARE talking about more people dying, NOT because of Covid BUT are dying just from the shots to prevent Covid……..aren’t you……..and, yes, I’m that thick…..be kind
No, the mystery doesn't continue. It hasn't been a mystery for some time. "It's the C-19 vaccine, stupid." We all know it. They can lie all they want to but it doesn't change the truth.
Traffic accidents are up due to vaccine effects too - heart attacks while driving, etc.
I wonder what on earth the common denominator among all those excess deaths could be? How long will it take those very smart people who won’t even pretend to look for one to be affected by that common denominator themselves?
First, thanks Alex for your undying dedication to the TRUTH.... Second, I want OFF this crazy train... Geeez... done with all this government/pharma/hedgefund/media subterfuge...
It is a weapon... No doubt.
@AlexBerenson I don't know if you've covered this aspect of the jabs yet.
Viral Reactivation is a possible issue with the jabs... THIS HAS BEEN KNOWN ALL ALONG. That means that you can become sick AGAIN from something that you've already recovered from. Like Chicken Pox, or the regular Flu. It damages your immune system.
Mayo Clinic says that there hasn't been a naturally occurring Polio case since 1979. Why are we seeing this now? Is the NIH really going to pretend that this is NOT related to the COVID vaccines*/gene therapies?
It's anecdotal but I know a number of people whose cancer was in remission and is now metastasized. And several men, including a brother in law, with strange bladder cancers. Without numbers overall that info is worthless but still can't help wondering.
This is the loaded gun I predicted that could not be stopped. Deaths could be dismissed by doctors and other medical establishment types with refusal to accept it had anything to do with the poison clot shot.
But the real issue would not be so easily hidden in excess mortality numbers which would be showing up further in insurance company client figures and funeral homes. Hello, you've reached your destination.
In addition, I've pointed out to people that we are only in Year 2 of this maximus experiment on the human immune system and mortality overall. People are like walking zombies thinking they've escaped the worst of the poison clot shot when others are suddenly dropping dead at all ages for no apparent reason. They are sadly wrong.
As an aside Alex, if you see this comment, someone is trying to steal your identity and approaching commenters in your telegram room. Since I occasionally comment there; they tried to imitate you and approached me yesterday. Just thought you should know so you can join the announcement club, "I will never reach out to you via Telegram private mail....yada, yada."
No mystery here. Let’s be real.
BTW, tomorrow, Aug 6, is the anniversary of the CDC's first admission that the covid vaccines don't prevent covid.
When I lived in Houston I saw the Service Corporation International building while I was walking along the Buffalo Bayou and I thought what a generic name, I wonder what they do?
I wish I had bought $SCI shitcalls instead of $MRNA shitputs. I always underestimate the cult of the vax zealots
My neighbor’s wife died dec 2021….. she was home mending from cancer… 2 days in hospital it went to her brain .. she died … she had previously test positive for Covid but never go Covid hospital marked her death as Covid …… he was upset
The funeral director said …. That is what they do….
They get money
Funeral director got money
And the husband got 9 thousand dollars!! To help pay for funeral
All this at taxpayers expense
he said I had policy to cover her……….
But it's ok, Mrs Fauci says its ethical to "encourage" employers to get their employees vaccinated.
Funeral parlors and cemeteries---people are dying to get in them.
@EthicalSkeptic (twitter) has been covering excess deaths extensively since last year.
How many people will die before they finally pull the mRNA shots? This mass psychosis formation is powerful stuff.
We need to organize a lawful and constitutionally protected march. From the headquarters of the CDC to the offices of CNN. The vaccine Injured, and those affected by mandates. There’s millions of us. We need to flood Atlanta and make it so they CANT ignore us. Make our voices finally heard. End the lies, expose the truth. No politics, just truth.
The world is protesting and Americans sit on their thumbs.
Pick a date, spread the word.
If only we could determine a reason for this excess mortality. May take thousands of years.
The funeral industry has had quite a lot of success in lobbying to have more of our rights stolen from us over decades as far as how we choose to handle our final remains. Us civilians will be all unsanitary and messy and environmentally unsound about it, so we should Trust The Experts.
this is all so bizarre. It is literally an Emperor-with-no-clothes situation, where no one but the kid is willing to voice the obvious, yet in denying it openly we are all acknowledging it. One twist is that we are all naked this time. The emperor's psychotic conceit has infected most of society. For the average joe who's been betrayed, it feels like it goes beyond just fear of acknowledging you've harmed yourself. It's bizarre that I've seen liberal neighbors come around to hating Biden and the whole Dem machine, and one even tear up when the possibility of her mom having passed away from the jab, but I find it odd that even at this point where they've voiced being on "our side" of this jab issue, they and many others around me who know full well that I didn't get it, have not brought it up directly, asked questions, or anything, really. There is something so psychologically strong going on, not to mention the fear of excommunication from the mainstream system, that makes it impossible to openly talk about the literally bloody obvious. Like W.T.F.?!!!
Hidden in plain sight! How is everyone not seeing this?
I’m reminded of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Fighter”: “Still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”
Wayne Root, talk show host, got married 8 months ago. He had about 200 people attend his wedding. It is estimated that around half the attendees had gotten the Covid shots. Since the wedding, 33 people are either dead or injured (8 dead, 25 with serious medical issues.). I'll give you one guess how many of the 33 had gotten the Covid shots. If you guessed 33, you win!
Here in New Zealand our smiling socialist PM Jacinda Adern has stated that she is the source of the TRUTH...if it hasn't come from her and her Labour party then it's NOT the truth. What is it about rabid left-wing socialist governments' that believe total control, big govt, big bureaucracy and redtape waffle is what citizens want? She has enabled social media, MSM, and her bureaucracy to crush dissent right across the political spectrum, including anyone who resists lockdowns and is deemed anti-vaccine? She is just another tyrant like Trudeau.
Nuremberg trials and then hangings
My hubby is an American Legion rider in support of the Patriot Guard funeral escorts. He was as busy as he wanted to be in 2021 and this year as well. Sometimes there are two funerals daily and the riders will split up, so that both funerals are covered.
The toe tag and body bag business must be booming as well. 🤢
Now do wholesale child-size coffin sales. A tertiary but booming business also.
I re-upped for the year two month ago. I really wish I didn't. Been following Alex's twitter feed recently. It's a lot of snark and frankly crap. I blocked it tonight. While I think he is a very good reporter he has way too high of an opinion of himself. Too much negativity and that is the last thing people need now. I don't want to support this anymore and will never pay again. There are a lot of other really good people doing great COVID reporting and many always instinctively knew the vaccines were crap. So what is the point.
Certainly a trend worth watching. All cause mortality is gaining momentum (seemingly) as the shots do their long term damage and trends shift. This type of industry plus insurance will tell the tale. You may have to dig for the data because MSM will not do it. Pray for those forced into the shots to keep a job and support a family. That criminal coercion should be hammered out of existence. Then pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
"Service Corporation’s earnings boomed in 2020 and 2021, thanks to Covid."
Covid was the new kid on the block in 2020 and responsible for excess deaths.
In 2021, covid was killing about 12% more than in 2020 because the vaccines increased the risk from covid. People were getting covid during the high risk fourteen day period after the jab and dying. But even worse, the vaccines themselves were killing a lot of working age people in non-covid-related deaths from heart disease, cancer, and stroke.
US working age deaths were up _at least_ 17.5% in 2021 from 2020--137,500 more deaths in 2021 than in 2020. Final numbers will be in near the end of the year.
I was at SCI’s investor day and have worked in funeral service my entire career. AMA.
This is interesting... https://kanekoa.substack.com/p/twitter-censors-pfizer-injured-israeli
It's Democide (intentional death by government.)
Unfortunately, the excess death rate is rising geometrically, rather than arithmetically.
The entire Covid response has been a disaster from the word go, as the elites, not to waste a crisis opportunity, sought to craft their response into something conducive to the agenda goals of the WEF (and other Marxist aspirations.)
And what's more unfortunate, is that the vaccine itself may be highly transmissible, similar to how AIDS can be spread, but more easily. The unwilling and unwitting may be able to "catch" the vaccine.
Until the dust settles on this society-changing episode in world history, I for one, unvaxxed, will avoid any interaction with the medical community. They simply cannot be trusted.
I know several young people who have recently died…vaccinated. At the funeral no one could say what the cause of death was. Note; they were not substance users. Straight arrow people. Makes me wonder.
Vaccine related deaths
People are just dying to use this company’s services.
Check out her mortality studies… https://marypatcampbell.substack.com/?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email&utm_content=share
When this first began I saw a picture of a sick Chinese couple on the news being ushered away by officials. I thought.. why was this footage taken and why was it on the news? It seemed very staged. Then the talk of this pandemic started. I said to my daughter "lets look up who makes the most PPE supplies". And Alibaba came up on my search. I just saw an Alibaba exec speaking at the
World economic Forum. I'm just saying!!! Its been insanity from start to finish and yes, the deaths keep coming. I have seen so many sudden unexplained deaths this year then ever in my 30 year medical career. Nobody appreciates me asking " were they vaccinated?" but I keep asking and looking -and the answer is most often "Yes" and boosted!!! Its beyond horrible and this President who said " I am becoming impatient with you, the unvaccinated. " he has a special place in hell reserved just for him." Or even better, he has to share it with Faucci!!
I urge everyone to watch this video of Dr. Ryan Cole. I first saw a video he made almost 2 years ago, and at that time he was getting alarmed about what he was seeing. So from a mild alarm to this video, which summarizes a lot of very frightening information. https://drtrozzi.org/2022/06/07/dr-ryan-cole-lipid-nanoparticle-a-gene-is-a-nuclear-bomb/
I grew up thinking that "cull the herd" conspiracy theories were either the stuff of cheap horror flicks, or insanity. Maybe those are the same. But Clancy's novel suddenly may it seem, if not possible, at least not completely impossible. Now ghouls like Mein Fuhrer Klaus Schwab (an absolute cartoon villain), and the detestable and malevolent Gates make mass death seem like a real goal.
The Baby Boomers are dying off. Statistically it makes sense and all the morbidity and mortality that goes with that aging population.
I am a healthy, active 66 yr old with no comorbidities. I foolishly took the Pfizer shots back in May 2021 because I still believed it was an actual "VACCINE". (Thanks Sen. Paul, you dope) In 2022 I've come down with 2 very nasty upper respiratory infections, one Covid the other not. I'm going to get treated for the one I currently have. Bear in mind, I NEVER get colds, flu or whatever, especially in the Summer. I can only conclude that my immune system has been pretty well compromised by these greedy, power hungry idiots. Just sayin.
