Are COVID-19 Cases Really “Surging” in Maine?

Well, Not Exactly


By: David Deschesne

November 13, 2020


Positive COVID-19 cases are rising in Maine, but the increased testing in November has created the illusion of a second wave, when a closer look at the data shows Maine is actually in better shape now than it was in mid-June.

Corporate Media Keeps Focusing on Maine’s “Surging” COVID-19 Cases While Hospitalizations Remain Low


Continually Hyping Positive Case Numbers Out of

Context is Just Sloppy, Irresponsible Journalism


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 4, 2020


   Maine’s corporate, establishment media has been incessantly fixated on the rising COVID-19 positive PCR tests in Maine over the last few days of October as if they were actually cheerleading for the virus to make a comeback after a lackluster summer in the Pine Tree State.

   While it isn’t surprising that respiratory illnesses of all types are rising, now going into early winter in Northern Maine, what seems to be lost on the corporate media shills posing as journalists is the fact that as Maine saw an increase of around 600 cases of COVID in the last week of October, the overall hospitalization rate was only 17 people in total in the entire State.  There were only 5 patients with COVID-19 in an ICU bed in the entire state at the time of this writing (October 31, 2020).

Student Hacker Crashes FFMHS Computer Server


   A 15 year-old male Fort Fairfield Middle/High School student faces criminal charges after introducing a program onto the school district’s server, causing degradation to multiple computer systems throughout the building.

   School staff reported to police around 10:35 Monday morning, November 2 that the FFMHS server was attacked by an outside computer causing a disruption to the traffic on that server.  Staff and students were unable to perform regular instructional tasks on the network; including causing the Email system to be compromised.  The school’s phone system was partially interrupted by the attack.  These disruption would not have been possible if instructions were done with hard copy paper and books, like generations of students used to learn with, and an analog telephone system.

   At no time was security to the students and staff compromised.

Kilcollins Back on Town Council


Chalice White Wins Write-In Bid for School Board


By:  David Deschesne

   The one Fort Fairfield town council seat up for grabs in this years election was easily won by incumbent, Bob Kilcollins.  Kilcollins received 753 votes to come in first place over Justin Hersey (450 votes) and Peter Newcomb (331 votes).  Kilcollins was the only town council member to vote against the recent property tax mil rate at September’s council meeting because he has concerns about how the town’s revaluation of property values is adversely affected the cash-strapped inhabitants of Fort Fairfield.

   Meanwhile, Amanda McLaughlin was re-elected to the school board and Chalice White barely edged out Holly Gorneault 113-112 for the second seat up for grabs. 




Female Juv. Steals Fire Chief’s Truck


On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 around 10:30pm, police arrested a 15 year-old female for theft of a motor vehicle and multiple other charges.

   Sgt. Ryan Eagles was responding to a motor vehicle crash after a passerby reported the vehicle operating erratically and then crashing at the intersection of Route 1A and the Center Limestone Road.

   When Sgt. Eagles arrived, he observed the truck belonged to Fort Fairfield Fire Rescue Chief, Tim Browning.  Moments later, Chief Browning, who was responding to the crash, informed Sgt. Eagles his truck was missing from the parking lot at the fire department.

   Chief Browning’s truck was warming up after a night of training at the station.  During that time, the juvenile, who was on foot, got into the truck and started to drive off.  She struck a fire department utility vehicle before getting out of the parking lot.  The juvenile then drove north on Route 1A before crashing the pick-up truck.

   She was charged with operating without a license, driving to endanger, leaving the scene of an accident, and aggravated criminal mischief.

   The juvenile was transported by Fort Fairfield Fire Rescue Ambulance to A.R. Gould hospital where she was treated and released to the care of her grandmother. 

   The juvenile has a January court date.







Dummying Up the COVID-19 “Surge”

with More Fake Numbers


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, July 29, 2020

   At some U.S. hospitals, mothers who are delivering babies are asked to have their baby tested for COVID-19 even though it would have been nearly impossible for the unborn child to contract a respiratory infection while in the womb. 

   If the mother refuses to have her baby tested, she and her family will be placed on a “federal watch list”, have all immediate family members counted “positive” for COVID-19 by default without a test and any of the people they’ve recently been around will be contact-traced and forced to self-quarantine for 14 days for the bogus infection.

   It is a number of gimmicks like this, and other double- and triple-counting measures that are fueling surges in case numbers across the U.S. for a virus that has essentially turned into a political tool for big-government authoritarians to use against the citizenry. 

   The data collection, now politicized, has gone completely out of control with zero accountability or fact checking and none of the case numbers in the “surge” states can be trusted, at this point.

   More damage to the public is now being done by rogue, out of control government agents in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus, than by the virus itself.   It is now being feared by many people that the governments of the various states will never relinquish their control and will keep COVID-19 around forever as a political tool, even if the virus does ultimately die out.





Fort Fairfield Votes Nearly All Red in This Year’s Election


   Fort Fairfield voters voted Republican over Democrat in every race but one in this year’s election.

  Judging from the numbers, though, Fort Fairfield voters didn’t all vote the party line straight down the ticket.

   For president, Republican Donald Trump got 985 votes to Democrat, Joe Biden’s 674.  Republican Susan Collins received 1,130 votes over Democrat Sara Gideon’s 475 for U.S. Senate.  The U.S. House vote was close in Fort Fairfield with Republican Dale Crafts getting 846 votes to Jared Golden’s 830. 

   At the State level, Republican Trey Stewart beat out Democrat Michael Carpenter 972 to 697 for State Senate.  But, the State House seat was in favor of Democrat, David McCrea  with 1066 votes, compared to Republican challenger, Brian Redmond, who receive 671 votes.

Democrats Maintain Stranglehold on Maine Legislature


Governor Mills’ Tyrannical, Misinformed COVID Response to Continue Unabated


By:  David Deschesne

   As of November 10, with many precincts reporting 100% and the rest in the high 90% range, the Democrats appeared to have won the day in both the Maine Senate and Maine House of Representatives.

   With 35 seats in the Senate, Democrats - primarily from Southern Maine - held on to 24 seats, with Republicans taking the remaining 11.  One big upset was former State Representative, Harold “Trey” Stewart, a young Republican from Presque Isle, unseating long-time Democrat career politician, Michael Carpenter.

   In the House, with 151 seats, Democrats will hold 84 of them, Republicans 64 and 3 Unenrolled candidates (Unenrolled are not a member of any political party).

   Most of the Democrat seats were from the socialist, Boston-transplanted area of southern Maine.  In several of those districts, Democrats ran unopposed because Republicans there are either scarce, or don’t believe they can win to begin with.

   What this means is there will be very little resistance to the ridiculous face mask mandates and upcoming business closures Maine’s Democrat Governor, Janet “Big Sister” Mills has planned for the State as she continues to allow politics and network television newscasts to guide her decisions in her COVID-19 response instead of the actual scientific data compiled by the U.S. CDC, Stanford University, and the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

   A recent face mask randomized controlled trial done in 2015 showed cloth face masks actually increase the risk of catching a respiratory illness.  Big Sister, though is ignoring this fact in order to support her misguided executive orders and continues to order Mainers to wear these masks even with the increase in risk for respiratory illness.



Calais Regional Hospital Nurses and Medical Laboratory Scientists Claim Victory, Cancel Planned Strike

   On the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 10, the registered nurses and medical laboratory scientists at Calais Regional Hospital (CRH) reached a tentative agreement with the hospital’s administration on a new labor contract. Highlights of the labor contract include pay increases and continued protections for core benefits.

   The tentative contract follows a strike authorization vote by the employees and an announcement that they would hold a two-day strike next week.

   “This was a hard fight over more than two years. We know our hospital is struggling, but we had to make sure that we protected conditions for the people who keep it running every day.” said Anne Sluzenski, RN and member of the union’s bargaining team. “We’re glad that management finally worked with us to reach an agreement that protected our benefits, and helped the hospital retain and recruit employees.”

   “Our membership has been through a lot the past couple of years. They have fought hard and have really stuck together. Our decision to vote for a strike was a difficult one to make,” said Shirley Richardson, a registered nurse at CRH. “But in the end, we are glad the hospital finally met us half-way and now we can move forward with a new agreement and new security for our membership.”

   The ratification vote on this tentative agreement is set for Monday, Nov. 16.

   The CRH employees are members of the Maine State Nurses Association, which is affiliated with the National Nurses Organizing Committee and National Nurses United.


At one of their three calls that day, the FFFD responded to structure fire on the Page Road in Fort Fairfield. The storage building was a complete loss but there were no injuries to person or livestock.                               photo/David Deschesne



At this Point, Joe Biden is Not President-Elect

By:  David Deschesne

   Despite the mainstream media accolades, and the fabrication of “The Office of the President-Elect” - a banner he appears in front of every chance he gets - Joe Biden is at this point not the President-Elect of the United States since no states have actually certified their presidential election ballots yet.

   Joe Biden is not receiving any national security briefings yet because the General Services Administration has not designated him as “President-Elect” and allowed that process to take place.

   In the U.S., there is no official “Office of the President-Elect.  It is purely a theatrical creation of the media.  As states now face challenges for fraudulent votes and requests for recount, it remains to be seen who is in fact going to be the President-elect.


Are the COVID-19 Death Numbers Correct?

Are Those Deaths Really Pres. Trump’s Fault?


By:  David Deschesne

September 9, 2020


   Running out of things to blame on President Trump, Democrats are now flinging as much mud against the wall as they can to see how much of it will stick.  With their most recent mud-slinging, Democrats are attempting to politically capitalize on the deaths of COVID-19 victims by promoting a death number now known to be hugely exaggerated, then unfairly attributing those deaths to President Trump.

   While Trump may be a bombastic Twitterholic (we really need to get a grownup in charge of his P.R.), it isn’t fair to blame him for COVID-19 deaths, exaggerated numbers or not.

   In January, two months before the outbreak in the U.S. (officially mid-March, but there are signs that COVID-19 blew through much of the Northern part of the U.S. December 2019 thru February 2020), President Trump ordered all air travel from China to be put on hold.  At the time, Democrats vehemently called him racist and xenophobic for those actions, but quieted down after more about the China/COVID-19 connection with their media darling, Dr. Anthony Fauci became known.  Relying on the exceedingly short attention span of the average American, Democrats then shifted to simply blaming Trump for the coronavirus outbreak and now, the subsequent deaths.

   With current deaths attributed to COVID-19 somewhere around 180,000, there appear to be some cracks forming in the narrative that may cause that excessively high number to come tumbling down to reality very soon.

Tremendous Response by Area Businesses and Organizations to PI Rotary’s Great Big Give Back Prompts Change in Timeline


Presque Isle -  An overwhelmingly positive response and generous outpouring of support by area businesses and organizations to the Presque Isle Rotary Club’s 2020 Great Big Give Back has coordinators looking at expanding their efforts and extending the project timeline.

   Rotarians moved forward earlier this fall with their plans to purchase $5,000 in items from businesses and organizations that donated to its largest fundraiser over the past couple of years to create five “Great Big” gift baskets, valued at $1,000 each.  Club members had planned to sell tickets on the baskets through mid-November for a drawing to benefit four worthy local causes.

   But, in true Aroostook County fashion, the generosity of the local community donors has yielded items valued at over $17,000 – more than three times what Rotarians set out to buy –to support the club and four designated community causes.

   “We never could have anticipated this kind of response when we began work on the Great Big Give Back, but we are so incredibly grateful for the community’s generosity,” said Rachel Rice, who along with fellow Presque Isle Rotarian Chantal Pelletier, are co-chairing this year’s unique auction replacement event. “As a result, we are tweaking plans for the project to reflect this positive development and so excited for the Great Big Give Back event we’ll be hosting a little later than originally planned.”

   Specifically, the Great Big Give Back Committee is looking at options, including the possibility of a mini on-line auction featuring big ticket items, to add to the gift basket fundraiser.  As soon as the plans are finalized, Presque Isle Rotarians will announce the newly enhanced project, as well as the revised timeline that will likely extend the project into the New Year.

   The corporate media-generated fear and hysteria around the COVID-19 cold virus has caused the necessary distraction of the public to allow the central banks of the world to quietly begin the rollout of a cashless society, “mark of the beast” style, control grid that will place central banks and their respective puppet governments in charge of who gets to buy and sell in the local, national and global economies of the future.

Democrats Advance Election Fraud to the National Level With Mail-In Voting Scam


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal

November 18, 2020


   The mainstream corporate media has crowned the 80 year-old geriatric patient with dementia - who could get barely 30 people to show up to a campaign rally, Joe Biden as the president-elect of the United States amidst a whirlwind of illegal activity from Democrat vote counters at several key battleground states.

   But votes for president in the U.S. are certified by the States, not the television media, who is creating the illusion of a win for Biden with their reporting.   The states have until mid-December to certify their votes.

    While the mainstream media, and Democrat organizers, claim they had nothing to hide, it certainly didn’t seem that way as poll watchers with city-wide certificates issued to them by the city of Philadelphia were continuously barred from having access to the polls as counting the votes was going on.  In some cases, an order from a local judge still wasn’t enough to get poll watchers access to the counting rooms.  In Detroit, windows were blocked with cardboard to prevent viewing access from the outside.

Senator Collins Warns of COVID-19 Contact Tracing Scam


DISTRICT of COLUMBIA—U.S. Senator Susan Collins is warning Mainers to be on alert for criminals impersonating public health officials in an effort to gain access to their credit card information.

   This scam starts with a phone call alleging that the recipient has come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.  The message recommends that the person self-isolate and get tested.  The scammer then seeks to gain the individual’s credit card number, claiming that this information is needed to send a COVID-19 test kit.  The scammer may also insist that the individual will be penalized if they do not agree to provide this information immediately.

   This scam is the latest iteration of coronavirus-related phone, text, and email scams seeking to trick or frighten consumers into sharing personally identifiable information and financial details in exchange for a stimulus check, COVID-19 vaccine, or fake government grant.

   “As Chairman of the Aging Committee, one of my top priorities is putting a stop to scams that seek to rob Americans of their personal information and hard-earned money,” said Senator Collins.  “It is reprehensible that these criminals are looking to take advantage of this crisis for their own gain.  I urge the public to be wary of phone calls, texts, or emails from unknown sources that demand immediate action.”

   “Contact tracing is an essential part of Maine CDC’s work to limit potential spread of the virus that causes COVID-19,” said Dr. Nirav D. Shah, Director of the Maine CDC. “But contact tracers will only ask questions specific to potential exposure and will not seek information about bank accounts, credit cards, Social Security numbers, or anything unrelated to potential virus exposure.”

   Contact tracing does not require your bank account, credit card number, immigration status, or Social Security number.

Maine Warden Service Dive Team

Recovers New York Man Who Drowned

WOODSTOCK, Maine – Maine Warden Service Divers have recovered the body of a New York City Man who drowned.

   At approximately 2:20 pm on November 2, with winds gusting over 35 miles and intermittent snow, Maine Warden Service divers located and recovered Yohanna Milad Israel Rizk, age 28 from New York City. Rizk was found in about 40 feet of water, 240 yards from the shore in Bryant Pond.

   The Maine Warden Service Dive team started diving around 8:30 am. Due to the high winds and large waves, diving conditions were difficult. Divers being towed by the boat on ropes had difficulty staying close to the bottom due to the rough conditions on the surface. Early this afternoon, the side scan sonar on the Warden Service Dive Boat was able to identify a likely area, and warden service divers were able to locate and recover Rizk.

   Rizk had been missing and presumed drowned since the day before when he went kayaking on Bryant Pond. His kayak flipped over dumping him into the 47-degree water around 1:30 pm. Rizk, an inexperienced kayaker, was not wearing a life jacket and did not know how to swim, struggled to grab the kayak before going under according to friends who witnessed the event from shore. Two friends grabbed two kayaks and went onto the pond to look for him, but found no sign of him.

   The Maine Warden Service and Woodstock Fire Department searched with boats yesterday but did not locate Rizk. A Maine Game Warden and his K9 did find a glove Rizk was wearing that had washed ashore. Game Warden divers focused their search on the area where witnesses last saw him.



AUBURN - On November 3, The Maine State Police, Major Crimes Unit-South, and Lewiston Police Department  charged a 20-year-old Auburn man with Murder in connection to the October 31, 2020 shooting of Hassan Hassan on River Street in Lewiston.  Abdikadir A. Nur was arrested by the Auburn Police Department on November 2 at approximately 9:00 p.m. at his mother’s home on Aspen Street in Auburn.  Nur was arrested on a Maine State Police warrant for Violation of Conditions of Release. Nur was out on $10,000 bail since September 30 after being arrested by Lewiston Police for Elevated Aggravated Assault in July for his involvement in a previous shooting in May.  He is currently being held at the Androscoggin County Jail.

   The Maine Attorney General’s Office approved an arrest warrant for Nur this afternoon for the additional charge of Murder.  The charges are a result of an extensive investigation by the Maine State Police, Lewiston Police Department, Auburn Police Department, Portland Police Department, Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, US Marshal’s Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security. 



RICHMOND - Maine State Police and Richmond Police are still investigating the deaths of two people found dead in a Richmond apartment building on November 2.  The autopsy on Dana Shulman, 49, who was found dead in his apartment on Main Street in Richmond, was completed. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The circumstances surrounding the death for Robin Bowler, 47, are still being investigated and are pending the results of toxicology tests which can take several weeks. Police do not believe anyone else is involved and there is no risk to the public.



ROBBINSTON - Charles “Chip” Townsend, 32, of Robbinston, has been arrested for Arson and Depraved Indifference Murder following the investigation into the fire that claimed the life of 66-year-old Wayne Morrill. On October 7, 2020, the State Fire Marshall’s Office was called to investigate a fire at Wayne Morrill’s residence located at 88 Ridge Road in Robbinston. Morrill was located in the home and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined that Morrill died as a result of smoke inhalation. The State Fire Marshall’s Office contacted the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit North to help investigate Morrill’s death. With the assistance of Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Calais Police, and Washington County Sheriff's Office, the investigation determined that Townsend set the fire that caused Wayne Morrill’s death. Townsend was arrested and has been transported to the Washington County Jail where he will await his initial appearance.

Large Drone Aircraft Seen Flying Over Washburn


By:  David Deschesne

WASHBURN, Maine - A local Washburn man has said he observed what appeared to be a large Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (a/k/a/ “drone”) flying just over the treetops on the outskirts of Washburn after dark on the evening of November 6.

   He described the aircraft as about five feet in length, with the proper nighttime running lights and “whisper quiet.”

   It flew just above the treetops, stopped over a potato house and made a 90 degree turn while hovering in place.  It then proceeded to fly off toward the horizon where it eventually disappeared.  “It was so quiet that if I wasn’t outside at the time and looking up, I would have never known it was there,” the witness said.

   The size of this drone is intriguing since consumer and even professional drones that are designed with “helicopter” style rotor blades are nowhere near that physical size.  After reviewing the drones available for government and law enforcement surveillance purposes, this writer found that all published drones of that size are fixed-wing style aircraft with forward-facing propellers and thus unable to hover and make on-the-point 90 degree turns like a helicopter style drone aircraft.  Also, consumer and professional drone aircraft are not allowed by the FAA to be flown after dark without a special waiver for each instance.

   The witness, who chose not to be identified, is known by this writer and credibility cannot be questioned.  Therefore, it can only be speculated at this point that this type of aircraft must have been some type of beta test by the government - perhaps the U.S. Border Patrol, or the straggling outpost of airmen that are said to be still covertly stationed at the former Loring Air Force Base, which closed in 1993.

   Earlier this year, in January, sightings of large drone aircraft flying in formation were reported to have occurred, and witnessed by many people, in Colorado and Nevada.
