It’s sometimes difficult to discern whether someone is merely ignorant on a political issue or if they are generally stupid and no amount of information given to them will actually get them to learn. Those on the Left will usually be ignorant no matter what, but stupidity reigns supreme because they continue to believe what they do despite the information provided to them by conservatives.
And seemingly, Bill Maher is among those who were merely ignorant on the issue of abortion, as he explained in a recent segment of his show that he was unaware both that Europe was more restrictive on abortion than the U.S. is and that most people who call themselves pro-life are actually women, rather than men.
I say “seemingly” because he’s had his “Real Time” show for nearly 20 years and, as a 66-year-old man, has been involved in media since the early 1980s, when he appeared on Johnny Carson’s and David Letterman’s shows (not to mention he definitely had political opinions from before that time as well).
My point being that I really doubt he’s only come to learn this recently. You’re this involved in the political world (albeit through commentary) for this long and only now you are beginning to hear things from the other side? Either he always did and would always ignore them, or he really was living in a Leftist bubble all his life.
At any rate, Maher said “I learned things this week… that are pretty basic things that I did not know about abortion. Like in Europe, the modern countries of Europe are way more restrictive than we are or what they’re even proposing! If you are pro-choice, you would like it a lot less in Germany, and Italy, and France, and Spain, and Switzerland. Did you know that? I didn’t know that.”
What he’s referring to is that Germany, France and Spain all have abortion limits set at 14 weeks into the pregnancy, while Italy and Switzerland have their limits at 12 weeks. Here in the U.S., Democrats shriek about even the mildest of restrictions to abortion and argue that it would be “unfair” to have limits at 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Maher continued: “I learned most people who are pro-life are women. I did not know that. Most abortions are from… mothers, people who have a kid… And I thought this was interesting, most abortions now – even when you go to a clinic are done with the pill. The pill. And pills are easy to get in America. So, you know, for the people who say we’re going back to 1973, we’re not. That’s just factually inaccurate.”
A couple things to say here. First, don’t think I didn’t catch that “most abortions are from… mothers, people who have a kid” bit that was clearly trying to be woke and claim men can get pregnant too. It’s not “most” of the abortions being from mothers. It’s ALL of them. Only mothers can get pregnant because only women can get pregnant and mothers are all women.
Second, regarding the “going back to 1973” thing, that’s just fearmongering from the Left to scare dumb women into thinking they will be forced to get risky, unsafe, life-threatening (for the mother, not just the child) abortions and that Roe allows them to get “safe” abortions. It’s a load of crap, all of it. For starters, overturning Roe doesn’t even get rid of abortion nationwide. The matter goes back to the states. Red states, hopefully, would eliminate abortion altogether, but blue states will continue to have it. And if an evil woman from a red state wants to kill her baby because she’s a selfish whore, she can go to a blue state to kill the child.
Of course, overturning Roe would only be step 1 in eliminating abortion nationwide, as we should be a country (and world, but country comes first and is easier) which not only disallows abortion but outright shuns it as it should be. Girls should be taught to not wantonly have sex with whatever is drunk enough to screw them and subsequently getting pregnant. They should be taught that life begins at conception because that’s the moment where two different DNA codes merge to create a unique one. Boys (at the appropriate age) should be taught not to act on their sexual impulses and temptations. Boys should be taught to be men of honor who will abstain from sex until he marries a woman who is also willing to abstain from sex until marriage.
Notice that I didn’t mention that girls should be taught to love their children, because such a thing comes naturally. The women who are pro-abortion are unnatural. They were taught to hate children and see them as nothing but a burden in their lives, and for the unborn, as nothing more than parasites.
And beyond coming to hate their children, they come to hate themselves. Not sure if you’ve seen the following image, but it depicts a person who either deeply hates herself or is being extremely overdramatic:
That sign indicates a deep level of self-hatred. Of course, the message falls a bit flat given that she’s wearing a mask because she fears dying of the largely non-lethal Chinese coronavirus, but the point remains. Only someone who hates him or herself to a notable degree would be willing to have that kind of sign at a Roe protest.
If they hate themselves, how can we expect them to not hate their children? And the thing about hate is that it has to be taught. The Leftist has to be taught that white people are evil, black people are blameless and victims, men are oppressors, etc. That’s why they want crap like CRT in classrooms, which only creates more and more Leftists who hate other people and most importantly themselves.
In any case, there’s more to that segment, as he had guests, one who was seemingly more pro-life and the other who was staunchly pro-abortion and was fuming the entire time (not to mention spreading disinformation like “interracial marriage” is next to try and make as many of their favored demographics fearful and ticked off enough to incite violence against pro-lifers), but this article is long enough as it is.
Again, I’m not believing for one second that Maher only became privy to this information recently. People had to have been telling him, in some form or fashion, about stuff like that and he had to have either ignored them altogether or countered that it was just “right-wing talking points.”
The fact is that only SEVEN countries in the entire world allow for elective (no reason) abortion after 20 weeks: The U.S., Canada, Netherlands, Singapore, China, North Korea and Vietnam.
Not exactly the best crowd to surround yourself with.
That abortion exists altogether is a nightmarish thing. Make no mistake, Roe v. Wade is the single worst decision the Supreme Court ever made. Dredd Scott may have led to the Civil War and Plessy led to the need for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but neither led to the genocide of nearly 64 million babies in 49 years, neither led to the death of nearly 20 million black babies in 49 years, and neither led to over 1000 babies being aborted every day in the U.S.
And yes, just because Roe has been around for nearly 50 years doesn’t mean crap. Roe is not “settled law” like conservative justices were cowardly made to acknowledge in their confirmation hearings. First of all, it’s not law. Only the Legislature can write and pass laws. Supreme Court cases are merely decisions as to what the SCOTUS of that time believes to be constitutional. But the Constitution does not say abortion was fine or legal anywhere. Furthermore, Plessy v. Ferguson, the decision which led to the “separate but equal” doctrine, was around for 58 years before it was overturned.
If Dredd Scott and Plessy were overturned, as they should’ve been, so can and should Roe v. Wade, Casey v. Planned Parenthood, Obergefell v. Hodges (the gay marriage case), etc. Evil should not be the law of the land and no Supreme Court case is ever “settled.”
If America wishes to see God’s favor and be able to sincerely say “God bless America” it must destroy evil wherever it is found. One such evil is in Roe v. Wade.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
The golden rule regarding Democrats is that the fake news media will always cover for them, particularly if they are a prominent figure within the party. Almost nothing short of blatant groping of women (at least getting caught for it) or outright murder will get Democrats into trouble with the fake news media (and this one is dubious, seeing as Ted Kennedy probably got away with it). So one would have to be a major screw-up of catastrophic proportions in order to be bashed by the Leftist fake news media.
And for the first time since the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, that’s what Brandon has had to face, at least from one source.
With inflation reaching 8.5%, the highest in 40 years (this comparison is often used to bash Reagan, but people forget that those levels were part of his RECOVERY from the double-digit inflation numbers seen during the Carter years) and wages effectively shrinking in comparison to inflation growth, more and more people are being open about their distaste for Biden (there are, of course, those who always lie in polls to protect themselves from Leftist persecution) and it’s being reflected in polling. So much so, in fact, that CNN is beginning to notice it.
In the latest CNN poll, the ghost hand-shaker is seeing approval of just 39%. This wouldn’t usually be too bad, but seeing as this is an extremely friendly poll, that 39% (which is a low in this poll) is terrible. Almost as friendly Quinnipiac University had him at an abysmal 33% approval.
These results have led to a CNN panel consisting of Bloomberg White House correspondent Jordan Fabian, CNN Capitol Hill reporter Melanie Zanona, and Time Magazine national political correspondent Molly Ball, with host Abby Phillip weighing in on such numbers.
Phillip said: “It’s an environment of overall discontent,” in relation to Republicans disapproving due to (among other things) poor economic policies, and environmentalist wackos disapproving due to Biden resuming the sale of oil and gas leases on federal land (ironically, the only thing I have ever approved of this illegitimate regime).
She continued: “People correctly perceive that he’s not in control of the situation. And I think ever since that Afghanistan last summer, people have had – voters overall – have not had a sense of leadership from the White House, have not had a sense that there’s a president in control, who is strong and consistent and knows what he’s doing and can project a consistent message from one day or the next.”
A few things to comment on here. First, notice that she added “correct” when talking about a perception that Biden isn’t in control of the situation. This indicates that even she is in agreement with the statement. Even a CNN panelist believes that Brandon is completely fumbling the bag here and cannot get a hold of any situation, from inflation to even messaging on Ukraine (which we’ll get to momentarily).
The second thing is that the American people haven’t had a sense of leadership from the White House not since the Afghanistan disaster, but since January 20th, 2021, namely in the hours before Biden successfully stole the presidency. We haven’t had a leader in the White House since Trump. The only difference between then and now is that even the Left is beginning to agree that Biden is not a leader.
Finally, it’s indicative of how big a failure Brandon is that even people on his own side, in a panel from one of the most Democrat-friendly fake news sources out there, are not only reporting how unpopular he is, but also don’t try to make excuses too much about it.
During the height of the Afghanistan botch, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, BBC News and others called it how it was: a disaster. By-and-large, they didn’t pull many punches against Biden. Matter of fact, I saw more CNN headlines lambasting Biden over that than from other sources. And this is awfully reminiscent of that time. The Afghanistan disaster was a spectacular botch, so much so that even fake news sources had little choice but to call him out on it.
This time, however, it’s not one particularly noteworthy botch or screw-up. It’s the culmination of them which have led to poor numbers even by CNN standards.
Molly Ball went on to talk about the inconsistent and botched messaging surrounding the war on Ukraine, saying that Biden continues to “step on his own messaging”, such as the time that Brandon heavily suggested that American troops would be sent to Ukraine, and that Putin “cannot remain in power”, suggesting forceful regime change in a world superpower which the Obama administration had been trying to be extremely friendly with.
Phillip then went on to share multiple clips of vulnerable Democrats in Congress distancing themselves from Brandon, to which Ball said that this should ring “alarm bells” for the occupier.
“It is a sign that they sense that there is nothing to be gained by continuing to be allies of the president,” Ball said. This is a sentiment which could not be found with Trump, even after the 2020 steal.
Of course, early on, many (though not all) RINOs made sure to distance themselves from Trump, but pretty much all conservatives in Congress or running for a Congressional seat sought his endorsement and wanted to be close to him. As time went on, with the obvious popularity of the MAGA movement, wolves dressed as sheep also sought to be endorsed by him (only to turn around and vote to impeach him for b.s. reasons) and even today, any Republican running, regardless of what they think or said about Trump in the past, is seeking his endorsement (which unfortunately, he is way too loose in giving).
Whereas Republicans seek Trump’s endorsement and close ties (even the ones who hate him), some Democrats seek to distance themselves from the man who supposedly won the most votes in American electoral history.
To conclude, the panel discussed his plummeting support from younger generations, which typically are the most Democrat-friendly demographic. Fabian argued that Brandon is losing support among millennials and Gen Z because he “hasn’t delivered” on campaign promises like canceling student loan debt, which could be an accurate assessment (alongside the Obama-like crappy economy). According to a recent Gallup poll, Biden is down 21% with Gen Z and 19% with millennials.
Fabian said: “Those numbers are a tremendous failure for a Democratic president to have numbers like that among young voters.”
Indeed, seeing as the youngest voters (aside from the literal infants) are those most recently indoctrinated by the Marxist centers for diseducation that we call colleges. When a Democrat president (or in this case occupier of the Oval Office) is seeing massive drops in support from young voters, that is another major indication of how poor a job he is doing.
Be it because of not canceling student loan debt or the crappy economy, young people are getting fed up with Brandon, as is the rest of the country.
Of course, we didn’t vote to elect him, and his approval was always low (given how, again, we didn’t elect him), but people, by-and-large tend to not be as honest as they would be in these polls if they didn’t have to fear Leftist persecution. Even the numbers we are seeing, regardless of source, I believe to be unnaturally high, and that his real approval numbers are far closer to the teens.
But let us not simply be content with these numbers now. The midterms are half a year away and they will certainly try to pull some shenanigans to avoid total disaster come November.
1 Peter 5:8
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
To provide a bit of context to the situation, recently, the crowdfunding platform GiveSendGo was hacked and revealed the names of nearly 100,000 donors who gave money to the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers, about half of which were small-dollar donations.
The piece of crap responsible for that went on to brag about it on TikTok, calling himself a “famous f***ing cyber-terrorist” during an unhinged rant. His name is Aubrey Cottle and supposedly the founder of hacktivist group “Anonymous” and is a crazy communist bastard who lives in Canada. And for those asking if this is committing the same “doxing” that this piece of crap (so tempted to say the stronger word) has led to doing, I’ll have you know that he is already rather famous, even having his own Wikipedia page.
But I do hope that God will do something about this cancer of the world.
In any case, Cottle isn’t the only cancer on this topic, because following this hack and the revealing of donors’ names, the evil fake news media tracked a number of these donors down and wrote the following type of email to them: “***, my name is ***. I’m a reporter at The Washington Post and am writing about leaked data on GiveSendGo contributions to the trucker convoy in Canada. Your name and email address are associated with a $40 contribution. Could you please tell me if this matches your records, and either call or reply to this email to share what motivated you to contribute to the campaign?”
In essence, they are practically telling these people “we know who you are and can find out where you work, live, hang out and everything we want about you.” It’s a form of terrorism not unlike mafiosos showing up at your house and “having coffee.”
The Post also wrote what Fox News describes as “a lengthy thread singling out the biggest donor and a map showing where the donations came from in the U.S.”
The mainstream media is outright evil and unapologetic about it. They will track down anyone who voices a dissenting opinion and ruin their lives. And they will grossly claim they are doing a service either to the country or to their party. They are evil scum of the earth who deserve to lose their jobs and go to prison.
One of the tweets concerning the GiveSendGo hack came from an Ottawa Citizen editor named Alison Mah who shared an article written by reporter Blair Crawford about a café owner who “was forced to shut down her business after receiving threats after her name appeared on the donor list,” reported Fox News.
What’s worse is that Mah and the article ensured that the blame fell on the café owner, pointing out that she “regrets making her $250 donation to the trucker convoy.”
It seems this act was so vile and putrid that even normally equally-as-putrid Ilhan Omar felt compelled to tweet: “I fail to see why any journalist felt the need to report on a shop owner making such a[n] insignificant donation rather than to get them harassed. It’s unconscionable and journalists need to do better.”
Seems that Omar missed the memo and forgot she’s supposed to side with the evil communist scum Stalinizing Canada and the U.S.
But if she’s sincere about this (making this an exceptionally rare case of a far-Leftist goon showing a modicum of a conscience), that ought to show just how vile and evil an act this was.
The news media in the U.S. and Canada have sought to it that they would track down and RUIN people’s lives over donations as small as $40. Donations made for the sake of brave truckers who 1) are sick and tired of the tyrannical bullcrap of vax mandates and 2) inadvertently proved that the pandemic is over because it’s been weeks of people mass gathering without masks and vaccines and not one trucker was sent to the ICU.
But because they are in the way of the Left’s fever dream of complete domination over their own countries, the government and far-Left media have sought to demonize them as racist terrorists (because racism always has to be a part of it, even when it makes absolutely no sense) whose livelihoods and lives ought to be ruined until they get “re-educated”.
Aubrey Cottle, The Washington Post, The Ottawa Citizen, Justin Castro, the bitch councilwoman who keeps calling the truckers “terrorists”, Canadian Banks and everyone involved in the attempted destruction of freedom-loving, ACTUAL peaceful protesters not only should, but WILL burn in Hell for a whole lot more than just this.
These people are evil, and do whatever they can to showcase that evil. I pray to God that He will smite these demons sooner rather than later.
“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’”
The press conference some people saw just a couple of days ago is precisely why Brandon is not allowed outside the basement for prolonged periods of time. In his first press conference in months, to mark the one-year anniversary of his successful heist of the 2020 election (or to do something about his pathetic approval numbers in even friendly polls), Brandon decided it would be appropriate to give a lengthy press conference and prove to the world why he is utterly unfit to be in the role that he is, whether they think he got it legit or not.
There are two particular topics which were introduced in the press conference (with questions being pre-approved, making this even worse) which highlighted how much the Left and Deep State messed up in putting this guy in the White House: Russia’s imminent invasion of Ukraine and the 2022 midterm elections.
Let’s begin with the first one. When asked what the U.S. and NATO response would be to a Russian invasion of Ukraine, Brandon said that it would depend on whether or not it was just a “minor incursion”. In other words, Putin is allowed to invade and take Ukraine little by little, but not all at once. Apparently, Brandon thinks real life is a video game and Russia can just immediately annex all of Ukraine and wouldn’t have to take it little by little.
He was pressed multiple times on this issue to try and give a better answer, but he kept screwing it up. He even tried to speculate Putin’s motives and moves, but admitted that he’s “not so sure he is certain what he’s going to do. My guess is he will move in, he has to do something.”
While it makes sense to try and make guesses and assumptions of what an opponent might do, this is saying the quiet part out loud. It’s like if Chamberlain had said “My guess is Hitler will move in on Poland to try and retake Danzig. He has to do something.” Even if you think this, there is no reason to say it to the public, particularly framing it with “he has to do something.” If you are intent on “protecting your allies” and “putting America back in its leading place in the world stage” as promised, you don’t say that your opponent “has to do something.”
By doing this, he has allowed Putin to take charge of this issue. In any negotiations heretofore, Putin knows that the U.S. won’t do much of anything to protect Ukraine, allowing him to take as much as he wants diplomatically, or if need be, militarily.
Regardless of how things go from here, this is just another major foreign policy blunder by the Brandon regime. He surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban, trapping thousands of Americans inside and killing 13 of them while trying to get terrorists. Now, he’s basically doing the same thing to Ukraine and broadcasting it to the world in no uncertain terms.
And make no mistake, China watched that press conference. Now that they know Brandon won’t bother to protect Ukraine, they’ll feel more emboldened to take Taiwan, possibly as soon as the Winter Olympics are over.
But that’s just one of the major screw-ups of the day for Brandon. The second one even had pedo news network CNN bashing him. That being that Brandon questioned the legitimacy of the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
A reporter asked Brandon about supposed “voting rights legislation” in the Senate, asking “if this isn’t passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its result will be legitimate?”
The incoherent mess of a thief responded with: “It all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election.”
Since that obviously wasn’t a very good, or even clear, answer, another reporter brought this up again:
“I just wanted to clarify: A moment ago, you were asked whether or not you believed that we would have free and fair elections in 2022 if some of these state legislatures reformed their voting protocols. (Sidenote, that’s not what the first reporter asked. The first one asked about the reform in the Senate, not the reforms from states like Georgia, so this one is trying to give Biden an out, which he doesn’t take). You said that it depends. Do you – do you think that they would in any way be illegitimate?”
“Oh, yeah, I think it easily could be – be illegitimate… I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit. It’s – the increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these – these reforms passed.”
In other words, he’s saying that if the Senate doesn’t pass his codifying of the cheating he did in 2020, the 2022 election won’t be legit.
Of course, it’s utter bullcrap, as 1) he himself is guilty of rigging an election and 2) he gives way to the questioning of all other prior elections in the United States… including 2020.
Think about it, he’s saying that if the Senate doesn’t pass these illegitimate election reforms, the 2022 election results might be illegitimate (likely because he knows he’s going to lose badly and is trying to get ahead of that). But that also means that, because these reforms haven’t been present in any prior election, all said prior elections might be illegitimate.
This would be quite the claim to make, that all elections prior were illegitimate. Of course, he’s not directly saying this, but that’s what this all implies, that without those election reforms in the Senate, the midterms won’t be legit. And since they weren’t present for any prior election, that would therefore render all prior elections illegitimate.
This blunder was so bad that, again, even CNN rebuked him for saying it.
John King said: “It is striking to hear an American president not named Donald Trump raise questions about the legitimacy and sanctity of our democracy.”
Jake Tapper said: “And quite strikingly, the President said that the upcoming midterm elections might not be legitimate if the election reform bills before the Senate are not passed… President Biden just said, with Donald Trump’s history when it comes to the big lie on the elections, but he refused to say that the election results this midterm – in these midterms in November would be legitimate. He refused it.”
Dana Bash said: “Well, particularly the first part, Anderson, what he said, was – actually the entire thing, but the first part was probably the most jarring to hear a President of the United States who is not Donald Trump, even suggest ahead of time that an election isn’t legitimate.”
You know it’s bad when CNN compares Biden to Trump. Now, of course, they are fake news, and the reasons for Trump’s questioning of the 2020 election were legitimate, unlike Biden’s.
We saw, in real-time, Biden get boosted up in votes in some states, defying laws of logic and mathematics. We saw fraud happening in Georgia during the “water pipe” fiasco, with the suitcases filled with votes, with people being told they had already voted when they hadn’t, with people as young as 0 years old and as old as 150 appearing to have voted, with the Dominion voting machines being wiped of their data the day after the elections, with some states outright taking days and WEEKS to count their votes which was utterly unprecedented.
Meanwhile, Brandon is complaining about the potential election results of 2022 because he’s doing a piss-poor job, is aware of it despite his apparent residence in Lalaland, and knows his Democrat allies are going to get rolled over in 2022, with him potentially being next in 2024, assuming he will even last that long, so he’s claiming that it won’t be legit unless his election-stealing “reforms” are passed.
Like I said, this is why Brandon isn’t allowed outside the basement for prolonged periods of time. He’s even worse at screwing things up for himself than Hillary was. The more he talks, the worse things get for him.
Though, to be fair, it’s not like maintaining radio silence was doing him any good. People can see and feel the awful job he’s been doing in his stolen position. Inflation reaching record-highs can be avoided in the fake news media, but not in people’s wallets. They can’t be lied to anymore by the fake news media about “how great a job” he’s been doing because they FEEL he’s doing a terrible job. Which is why his approval numbers are particularly awful in even friendly polls like Quinnipiac. And keep in mind, the people didn’t elect him and never really liked him to begin with. I don’t believe he’s even as popular as these polls show, particularly as a growing number of people (now at 58%) say they believe Biden cheated in 2020, which is up from 54%, with 57% supporting audits of the 2020 election.
Brandon built his so-called “presidency” on a foundation of lies. As it turns out, he also built himself a house of cards. His end will come sooner rather than later, particularly if he’s managing to anger the people who put him in this position in the first place.
“The wise will inherit honor, but fools get disgrace.”
Can someone check if pigs can fly and Hell has frozen over? Because, perhaps for the first time ever, a news source not only admits to having lied about something major, but went so far as to apologize to its audience for doing so.
Before we go around celebrating anything, I should explain that it’s not an American fake news source (as you can tell from the title), but a Danish one, which apologized for “hypnotically” following their government’s narrative surrounding the Chinese coronavirus. They even outright admitted that “we failed,” with that being the very headline they used.
The newspaper goes on to admit: “For ALMOST two years, we – the press and the population – have been almost hypnotically preoccupied with the authorities’ daily coronavirus figures.” They also admit that they didn’t do their due diligence with differentiating between someone who died WITH the virus and someone who died FROM the virus.
“WE HAVE NOT been vigilant enough at the garden gate when the authorities were required to answer what it actually meant that people are hospitalized with corona and not because of corona. Because it makes a difference. A big difference.”
They even go so far as to assert that their politicians and authorities have “lied” about many aspects of the pandemic and as a result, they have lost the trust of the people (something I will return to in a moment).
The paper also begins to question the efficacy of the vaccines, as the authorities said they were the key to ending the pandemic but roughly a year after having full access to vaccines, the pandemic is still a thing.
“The vaccines are consistently referred to as our ‘superweapon.’ And our hospitals are called ‘superhospitals.’ Nevertheless, these super-hospitals are apparently maximally pressured, even though almost the entire population is armed with a super-weapon. Even children have been vaccinated on a huge scale, which has not been done in our neighboring countries.”
Slowly, but surely, people are beginning to wake up. Even in the world of fake news, the insanity can only go on for so long. They can only reject reality for so long until it makes them mad, or until they face the truth.
I don’t doubt for one second that Danish people stopped trusting their government and the news as a result of this mass deception operation. A big part of this is because such distrust has been building everywhere for the past few years.
I first talked about the French beginning to lose trust in the scientific community. Not too long ago, I talked about the Germans distrusting government figures. And in the last article, I talked about how even CNN has admitted that the CDC has become a “punch line,” as Brian Stelter said.
Now, we have a Danish newspaper admitting to “hypnotically” passing along whatever narrative the government told them to push without having an iota of journalistic integrity or curiosity about the whole ordeal.
But that’s not all. Like I said, I’d get back to the whole “people losing trust” thing. And so, here we are. Again, the French and Germans lost trust, CNN and other fake news media (because remember, that started with MSNBC’s Savannah Guthrie) losing trust in the CDC (not to mention people losing trust in CNN, as their ratings are down 90% from last year), and now, we have a NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ poll which shows the following:
When asked what sources they trust to deliver information regarding the Chinese coronavirus, 30.8% of respondents said they trusted Anthony Fauci, 49.8% said they trusted the CDC, FDA and other health authorities, 63.2% said they trusted their doctor, 15.5% said they trusted Joe Biden, and 10.2% said they trusted the fake news media.
The surveyors were asked to select all that applied, so they didn’t simply choose one over the other. They consciously chose to avoid certain sources if they didn’t trust them, and said they trusted others more.
And before any Leftist tries to argue that this was biased or skewed to the Right, 73.9% of the respondents were vaccinated. By-and-large, Leftists are more often vaccinated than those who claim to be on the Right, so this showed little bias to speak of. If anything, it showed more left-leaning bias.
Pretty much all of those numbers are awful, but not undeserved. I could imagine that, when the pandemic began, all of these entities (except for Biden, obviously) were considerably more trusted than they are today.
To me, it’s not that nearly one-in-three people still trust Fauci. It’s that only less than one-in-three people will trust Fauci anymore. And the more time that passes, the more lies he tells, and the more he is exposed by the likes of Project Veritas and Sen. Rand Paul, the fewer the people will be that trust him moving forward.
That less than 50% trust the CDC, FDA, etc. is also quite telling, as there is no doubt it used to be considerably higher, both when the pandemic first began and even before the pandemic. There was little reason to distrust them then, after all, at least for most people.
And, of course, hardly anyone trusts Brandon or the fake news media. And those are especially deserved, given they are nothing but agenda-driven demons. At least for the so-called “scientists” and “experts”, one could argue that monetary or social gain could be a factor as to why they say and do what they do. But for the most part, Brandon and the fake news media know what they're doing and the lies they are telling.
Remember, even in the article where I talked about CNN’s distrust for the CDC, Brian Stelter still told lies surrounding the Chinese coronavirus, so it’s not like they turned over a new leaf and began to tell the truth henceforth.
We’ve known these people to be horrific liars, so those numbers aren’t at all surprising.
But returning to the Danish newspaper, more than an apology for their actions, I hope and expect they will change their ways and not peddle false information to the people just because the government asked them to. Begin questioning the narrative. Regain whatever journalistic curiosity and integrity we believed existed, if it ever did, and start looking into the information given by their government, and question whether or not they are benefited by falsifying that information.
I also hope that other fake news sources begin to change their ways as well. They don’t HAVE to be fake news. They only are it because they willingly spread disinformation for a political agenda which is utterly detrimental to civilized society.
Unfortunately, I fear we may actually have to wait to see pigs flying and Hell freezing over before that happens.
“Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.”
While online, I often see posts talking about what the fake news media is saying about this thing or that thing, usually pertaining either to Brandon or the pandemic or Brandon’s handling of the pandemic (interestingly, they aren’t pulling punches on him with the lack of COVID tests). But for the most part, I no longer care what the fake news media has to say about anything.
The reason for this is that it’s a dying medium. I recently saw this graphic depicting media ratings in Q3 of 2021 showing Joe Rogan’s podcast compared to news media, including Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity:
Rogan far outperforms all other news media, and alternative media sources make the mainstream media obsolete. So when I see posts saying “fake news is saying this”, for the most part, I say “who cares? They’re irrelevant now and have long lost their monopoly on information”.
However, there are instances where I think it is rather relevant what they are saying: when they basically attack their own side.
And this is what CNN’s Brian Stelter did recently. On his show on Sunday, one of fake news media’s biggest idiots (though perhaps only #3 within CNN itself), reported on the CDC’s credibility during a time in which most people are done with the pandemic and couldn’t care less what the CDC was saying anymore.
Stelter began with a poll depicting most Americans agreeing that there is a mental health crisis in the U.S., with a researcher saying of that poll that many Americans are feeling despair because they don’t know when this madness will end. And Stelter used the word “madness” himself.
“Now, there’s a segment of Americans who tuned out the pandemic a while ago. They dropped the masks, they moved on, despite entreaties from public health officials. Some of them are unvaccinated and at high risk right now due to Omicron,” said Stelter, some true and that last bit utterly untrue, because the fake news media will always deliver fake news.
“But I want to focus on the other segment of Americans, those who are vaccinated, who are paying attention to the pandemic, and are hearing about Omicron and school closures and testing troubles and all the rest. This moment in the pandemic is really complicated because a mostly mild variant is still bringing hospitals to the brink of capacity and care (not true, as most people tend to go to the hospital for different reasons and are diagnosed with COVID while staying there, artificially inflating the numbers of COVID hospitalizations, but again, fake news will fake news). And a lot of people are confused about what to do and about what to believe.”
“Now, many doctors are doing an amazing juggling act, given these circumstances. And yet, I think we’re also potentially seeing and hearing from doomsday doctors who push people toward even more fear, anxiety, and depression.”
I remind you, this is CNN’s Brian Stelter saying this, which would get pretty much anyone banned on social media.
“I’m not trying to call out anybody in particular,” Stelter continued. “I think this is obviously really nuanced. But is there an undue amount of fear being spread, especially in those Twitter threads and Facebook posts, and in corners of cable TV where it feels like COVID zero is the only goal? COVID zero, of course, the idea that you can completely eliminate COVID from the environment, which is an impossibility.”
Stelter then brought on a couple of guests, one of them being a doctor in Washington, who agreed that “we are bathing in fear,” and when she’s on social media, she’s “trying to help people understand that, look, your risk for COVID is as different as someone else’s. And revving the emotional engines of people’s anxiety only does harm.”
The other guest was CNN’s Oliver Darcy, to whom Stelter asked a rather surprising question: “Is the media at this point out of touch with the public about COVID?”
The simple answer is that it is out of touch with the public about everything, let alone the Chinese coronavirus, but Darcy surprisingly says that yes, it is out of touch (regarding COVID, at least).
“[A] lot of the media does seem, when I look at it and travel the country, to be very out of touch with people. I mean, if you travel the country, people are not really living in the same bubble that, it seems, that most of the media is messaging toward.”
“And so… I think this is an issue because if people are tuning out what’s going on in cable news, if we’re not messaging toward the general population, they’re just ignoring everything and living their lives, and we’re not really getting the information that they need to them.”
Stelter then showed a clip from Savannah Guthrie interviewing the CDC director, where Stelter said “It is so sad but it’s true. The CDC has turned into a punch line”:
“All of this mixed messages or new messages has led to a meme on social media poking fun at the CDC’s advice, tweets like, CDC now recommends eating straight off the floor at Waffle House. The CDC now says it’s in fact okay to eat Tide Pods. The CDC says go ahead and get bangs. You know, it’s amusing, people letting off steam, of course. But is there a larger credibility problem with your agency right now?”
Stelter answers Guthrie’s question: “And the answer is yes, there’s a huge credibility crisis for the CDC.”
The segment ended with Darcy and Stelter agreeing that people aren’t really paying attention to what the CDC is saying and to what the articles and news reports are saying, such as stories throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas about “advising” people to take “precautions” that people didn’t listen to (thankfully), and agreeing that the news media needs to come up with “realistic solutions and advice to the general public when talking about COVID.”
This is surprisingly introspective of one of the worst repeat offenders of fake news deliverance (though they did still say bullcrap even in this segment) and depicts just how little credibility the CDC has now. No one believes them, including CNN, and everyone agrees they are delivering contradictory and confusing messages.
This is awfully similar to the last article I wrote, where Germans were distrustful of their government’s figures regarding Omicron infections and hospitalizations, and like the article I wrote where the French were also distrustful of scientists for delivering confusing and contradictory messages.
It used to be that someone who got the shot once was vaccinated. That changed to two shots. Now, it’s three but will be four soon and five not long after. People who were smug about being vaccinated and getting special “rights” (which they didn’t see as wrong or discriminatory because such people are jerks) all of a sudden were pushed back down to “unvaccinated” status. They became the dregs of society they see us as on a mere whim by a man drunk on power and fame (whose time will soon end, if even the fake news media is beginning to not believe the hype).
Regarding masking, they were to wear masks everywhere, with a few exceptions such as parties and restaurants if they are in the process of eating or drinking something. Even then, those who most push for the mandating of such rules repeatedly ignored or broke such mandates when it came to their own personal desires, such as going to dinner or getting a haircut. Oh, and for a while, we were talking about people having to wear as many as two or three masks at once, but that has seemingly died down ever since.
And regarding early treatment, they ignore basically everything in favor of pushing poison when Joe Rogan, whom earlier I mentioned far outperforms the mainstream media in terms of viewership, got COVID last year and was fine after three days thanks to taking Ivermectin, which idiots still refer to as “horse dewormer.”
You can only tell so many lies to people until the complicated web begins to untangle. Cracks will begin to show, inconsistencies will begin to be seen, and questions begin to be raised. And when those who raise such questions, not in defiance but in genuine curiosity, are threatened with suspensions and bans from social media or elsewhere, being compared to outright Nazis (because these people are historically illiterate), that’s only going to cause more and more people to stand against the bullcrap they are seeing.
The veil is being lifted. It’s only a matter of time, then, until the tyrants suffer the consequences of their actions.
If the Australian government can treat Novak Djokovic as poorly as they are, they can treat others even worse (and they are, as I have already written).
But they and all the others who have taken advantage of people’s fears will soon meet their end, not only politically but legally. Let it rain Nuremberg Trial 2.0’s.
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?”
It’s been a while since I have talked about a Campus Reform video, but their latest one is quite intriguing.
Campus Reform’s Addison Smith went to Georgetown University in Washington D.C. to ask students their thoughts on higher prices due to inflation affecting Thanksgiving.
He began the video by talking about how “Last year, Americans enjoyed the least expensive Thanksgiving dinner in decades. Just one year later, and on the heels of sky-high inflation, reports warn that this time around could be the most costly Thanksgiving feast in American history.”
One year is all Brandon needed to take us from the cheapest Thanksgiving ever to the most expensive one. I’d be impressed if I weren’t so pissed.
At any rate, throughout the video, Smith asks the students their thoughts on the rising prices, inflation and the economy in general. And while many largely weren’t paying much attention to these things, everyone ultimately agreed not only that inflation is pretty bad right now (particularly after being told that the price for Turkey is up 22% and gas is up 50% since last year), but that the situation was better under President Trump than under Brandon. Even one who didn’t want to admit this to be true couldn’t deny that it was true.
This is particularly bad for Brandon given that college students tend to be Leftists, or at least rather liberal, and typically vote for Democrats. Not ONE of these students could deny that Brandon has made things worse in the months that he has illegitimately been in power. This is rather reflective of the awful poll numbers even Leftist polls show for the child predator.
But the fake news media, as I have said in a previous article, will either minimize the damage of the Bidenflation we are seeing or will outright gaslight you into believing that things are going well. MSNBC’s Joy Reid has somehow managed to do both.
In one of her latest segments, Lying Joy Reid made the claim that inflation was just a “buzzword bandwagon” by Republicans, adding that the GOP wants people “to believe the economy isn’t doing well, that’s terrible. But, in reality, unemployment is at its lowest point since before the pandemic began,” and absurdly claims that that it’s okay that “prices are higher” because “Americans are also spending a record amount of money that was pent up during the pandemic, which economics 101 will tell you drives prices up, aka inflation.”
This idiot is really out here trying to tell us that we have inflation because people are spending more money and that creates inflation. That we have inflation because we have inflation.
What, there is high inflation and Americans are spending a record amount of money? I wonder if those two things are related in any way. Hmm.
But it’s not just that bit of idiocy that made up her moronic segment. After claiming that it’s okay that we have inflation because Americans are spending more money and unemployment is the lowest since the pandemic began (tens of millions lost their jobs, so this is far from an accomplishment. Not to mention millions are not even looking for work anymore because they either adapted to a new/better source of income or are content with dependency on government stimulus, so the real unemployment rate is far higher than these people claim), she then went on to blame AMERICAN CONSUMERS for the lowest consumer confidence in a decade and for believing that we are in a bad economy.
“[T]hat conflict between how much we want to spend and what we can get into our hands quickly is contributing to how pessimistic many Americans feel about the economy. Consumer confidence is its lowest in a decade.”
So it’s people’s fault that they think we have a bad economy, not the fact we have a bad economy. People want to spend their money and are disillusioned by the fact prices are much higher than under Trump, and it’s THEIR fault?
Hilariously, she then goes on to say: “So – so, the economy isn’t bad. It’s just that people are mad because everything is late and things cost a little bit more.”
Yeah, things being late and costing more is a sign of a GREAT economy.
And if that wasn’t enough, she then goes on to claim that the only reason this is happening or that we’re even talking about it is because… get this… Republicans want to get back in power.
Right, because one couldn’t make the same claim that the ONLY reason Leftist hacks like Reid are making all these claims is because they want Democrats to remain in power.
Make no mistake, that really is the only reason they are saying all this. They see how much Brandon is fumbling the bag, how unpopular he and his borderline-prostitute of a VP are, and how screwed the Democrats are for 2022.
So they lie and lie and lie, as they always have, to get the result they want. The economy was doing fantastic throughout Trump’s tenure (so much so that Obama repeatedly tried and failed to take credit for it), and they largely couldn’t attack it until the pandemic began. But any rational person could tell that the economy started doing poorly because of the decisions by governors and local authorities to shut everything down.
Now, Brandon doesn’t get that as an excuse. States have been open/opening back up for months now, even the deep blue ones. There is still insanity surrounding the virus, but the reason this is such a bad economy is because of Brandon’s own disastrous policies and the Democrats wanting to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars.
Odd how last year, under rather similar circumstances regarding the virus, we weren’t seeing such awful inflation rates. So the college students are correct in their assessment that things were better under Trump.
The biggest difference between this year and last year is who is at the helm. And we have a senile child abuser who isn’t even allowed to take any questions from the press apart from pre-approved ones leading this country (illegitimately at that).
One of the students in that Campus Reform video said that she was planning to go to Miami over Thanksgiving. Assuming she’s going to drive there, that is over 1000 miles of travel taking the shortest route. And that’s just on the way there, nevermind on the trip back. That girl is going to be spending a LOT of money on this trip just on gas alone, not to mention the food and other basic travel necessities she has to buy which have also had their prices gone up because of the Brandon administration.
But since Lying Joy Reid is rich, she doesn’t have to worry about inflation at all and has the gall to tell other people that they shouldn’t either.
“Let them eat cake”, as the saying goes of the out-of-touch jackasses.
“For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.”
The Left not knowing how economics works is not exactly a big secret. By and large, they often prove that they don’t know anything of how it works and no amount of economics degrees or awards will disprove that. So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to see an MSNBC host making an exceedingly stupid comment regarding the economy.
During a segment on her show, Stephanie Ruhle made the following comment: “The dirty little secret here, Willie, while nobody likes to pay more, on average we have the money to do so. Household savings hit a record high over the pandemic. While the stock market isn’t the economy, you have over half of American households with some investment in the markets and the markets have hit record highs.”
In essence, she’s saying that it’s okay that you have to pay more for your food because you have the money to afford it… completely ignoring just what inflation does to money.
While we are FAR from Venezuela’s, The Weimar Republic’s, and other socialist countries’ inflation rates, the fact is that your dollar is worth less now than it was a year ago, which is why you see higher prices on store shelves (and other problems abound, such as a supply-chain problem).
So sure, people can usually afford to still pay for some things, but the “dirty little secret” about inflation, which really isn’t a secret at all, is that it leads people to be more conservative with their money. With their money being worth a bit less, they will want to save more, so they forego buying things which they don’t think are all too necessary for them at the moment.
Which can even make things worse because if fewer things are being bought, the retailers and producers need to make up the difference somewhere, so they either hike up prices even more or cut costs wherever they see fit, either in quality of product, quantity of product or lay-offs, of which there were plenty because of Leftist jackasses insisting that only SOME people’s jobs were “essential.”
Comments like the ones by Ruhle not only show the utter ignorance of the Left, but their unabashed bias. In essence, she is minimizing inflation because we all know on whom the responsibility lies. And with Brandon’s administration already well underwater because of recent events (including the inflation these deceivers are trying to minimize and even claim is a GOOD THING in some cases), the fake news media can’t afford to report on the bad things happening with any semblance of objectivity because the objective reality is that Biden is awful.
And the arguments made by Ruhle as to why the economy is *akshually* doing great are idiotic.
Household savings increased because EVERYTHING WAS SHUT DOWN. Not to mention that it’s odd she would argue that the economy is doing well with household savings from last year as a metric because Trump was still in the White House last year. If she’s trying to say that the economy during the pandemic has been good based on a metric from last year, she’s conveniently forgetting that she can’t credit the Brandon administration for that one in particular.
Secondly, the market was just about the only other place many Americans could receive income from, you know, because ghouls like YOU, Steph, insisted that people NEEDED to lose their jobs “for the common good” in keeping people “safe” from the virus. Oddly, more people have reportedly died from that same virus this year than last year, but your guy is in office, so there’s no need to talk about it anymore, apparently.
Lastly, markets hitting record highs has NOTHING to do with the Brandon administration. If anything, they are hitting record highs IN SPITE of him and his goons.
The market made a quick recovery in 2020. For it to continue to go up is due to a number of reasons (among which being multiple states and countries opening back up), absolutely NONE of which include the fact that the illegitimate child predator is occupying the Oval Office.
The idea that it’s okay that there are higher prices for things because “people can afford them” is emblematic of the following meme structure: Tell me you don’t know how inflation works without telling me you don’t know how inflation works.
Inflation means that your currency becomes less valuable. In a previous article, I talked about how cash was literally disappearing from Venezuela.
In that article, I mentioned that there were long lines being formed outside of banks in Caracas, hoping to withdraw the maximum limit of 400,000 bolivars. An idiot Leftist might think that that’s great and that means that just about everyone in Venezuela is a millionaire or billionaire (another thing which I have previously talked about), but in reality, 400,000 bolivars is worth around 20 cents (though maybe a bit more, with our inflation being worse now than back then).
With bolivars being as worthless as they are, people turned to using them to make handbags to sell outside the country. Bolivars are so worthless, they are worth more as the fabric that they are made from than as the currency it’s meant to represent.
This is with hyperinflation rates never before seen in the U.S., but that’s beside the point. The point is that with inflation, your money becomes less valuable. So the idea that “people can still afford to buy more expensive stuff” is not only asinine, it’s outright ironic. If it gets bad enough, you can get to the point where you’re spending a good bit of your money on basic things.
In the other article I brought up earlier, I mentioned that in order to purchase a little more than half a pound of the cheapest ham and cheese one could find, one would have to pay over 600,000 bolivars.
“But if 400,000 bolivars is roughly 20 cents, then 600,000 bolivars can hardly be much more, probably not even a dollar,” the Leftist might argue. Maybe, but that’s irrelevant because I also mentioned in that article that 600,000 bolivars is three-fourths of someone’s monthly salary at minimum wage.
With all the talk from the Left about how minimum wage isn’t a “livable wage” in the States, imagine how much less livable it is in a country where someone can barely afford the cheapest ham and cheese with a whole month’s worth of salary (and this is discounting all the other expenses they would have to make).
With such worthless currency, they would naturally have to seriously consider foregoing buying ham and cheese (and in most cases, actually do so). They might see it as luxury food.
And that’s why Ruhle’s comment is so idiotic. Anyone who is remotely knowledgeable of economics and inflation could tell you that it’s not good to have high inflation or hyperinflation. Again, we are far from the economic state that Venezuela is in, but there are people in the States who do have to adjust what they have to buy and how much of it. This impacts them negatively, and telling them that it’s not a very big deal or that they should just suck it up because “you can afford it” is ignorant, belligerent and short-sighted.
Not everyone is as rich as you, Steph. So it’s definitely not true that the “dirty little secret” is that people can afford higher prices. For many, they literally can’t. Not if they want to pay for other things which they might consider of higher importance.
And this is why so many people can’t stand the fake news media. It’s not just that they lie to people, they HATE the people they are lying to and see nothing wrong with them suffering economically. At least, not if they suffer economically during a Democrat administration. They destroyed Bush because of the recession (not that he had nothing to do with it) and tried to do the same with Trump during the pandemic mini-recession.
Now that their boy is in power, however, the economic trainwreck he’s causing will not only be minimized, it will be PROMOTED as something good in some cases. At best, they just decide to utterly ignore it or shift the blame.
They are annoying liars and a pest to this country.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
The fake news media is altogether biased and only operates within the bounds of their established Leftist agenda. I don’t think I really need to repeat that, but the MSM continues proving this day after day with report after report, regardless of subject.
Recently, with many states having made the logical decision to reopen (after having made the originally illogical decision to lock down) and seeing Chinese coronavirus cases dropping, NBC News has tried to cast doubt on how good reopening states is as an idea, attempting to credit anything apart from the basic reopening to why the number of cases dropping in such states (and also trying to explain away why states that continue lockdowns are seeing rising cases).
Nothing but dishonesty abounds, but this is the fake news media, so it’s to be expected, unfortunately. We do not have an honest, unbiased media in this country, so we have to discern the truth of reality from what quackery these deceivers try to sell us.
NBC News reporter Sam Brock began by declaring, “Call it a COVID conundrum. In states with the strictest measures in the country, like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and much of New England, cases are on the rise, while in the South, states like Arkansas and Texas that have reopened businesses and ripped away mask mandates are seeing their numbers drop.”
“So what might explain the apparent contradiction? One theory: differences in testing rates. Alabama has experienced one of the biggest dips in infections, more than 52% in two weeks. But it’s also dead last in the U.S. for COVID testing.”
“How much does the lack of adequate testing have to do with the numbers we’re seeing right now?” Brock eventually asked an NBC guest, who is a doctor at Florida International University, whom replied: “When you don’t test you’re blind, and when you’re not testing you have a false sense of what the real problem is in your community.”
There is plenty of information now available about the Chinese coronavirus that it makes no sense for people to make these kinds of assertions or theories, especially as we have seen that over-testing can result in false positives. For example, we know that the virus has a higher rate of infection when indoors. That was actually one excuse given when states were locking down and unconstitutionally and illegally shutting down businesses. However, we also now know that the virus has an extremely high rate of survivability for most people.
Back early in the pandemic, we heard of survival rates around 97%. Still decently high, but considerably lower than things like the flu. There was at least some reason to be wary of this virus back then because we knew so little about it. But now we know a lot more, such as the fact that the survival rate is 99.9%+ for most people. What’s more, one idiotic thing this country did (and all countries which went with lockdowns, really) was that we decided to lock down people who were HEALTHY as opposed to quarantining those who were sick.
Remember phrases like “flatten the curve” and “slow the spread”? The original purpose of those things was to allow hospitals to not be overwhelmed by cases, since that would lead to catastrophe. Well, we flattened the curve and we slowed the spread as much as we could, with almost everyone in the country routinely wearing masks where they needed to, but bad-faith actors with PhD’s, as well as members of the fake news media, moved the goal posts.
The original purpose of taking a lot of these safety measures was to not overwhelm the hospital systems with virus cases and with normal, daily problems hospitals have to deal with. But at no point did the hospitals even come close to being overwhelmed, so much so that when Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to house patients in New York (back then, the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S.), it was hardly used.
And now, we have states like Florida, one of the most populous states in the country with a notoriously old population (being a retirement spot and all), which reopened back in the late summer of last year and NOTHING catastrophic has happened since. Cases varied, but at this point, like NBC reported, they are going down, as are cases in Texas.
Speaking of Texas, Brock persisted with another theory: COVID fatigue. “Michigan, where people are just coming out of lockdown for the first time in months, cases are up more than 100% as demographics shift. Texas, on the other hand, began opening its doors months ago and just jammed 40,000 people into the (Texas) Rangers’ ballpark, many without masks.”
Dr. Neil Gandhi of Houston Medical Hospital posited that “A lot of individuals in the southern U.S. and especially here in Texas have already been exposed to the coronavirus, so many individuals already have coronavirus antibodies.”
While that is a sound and reasonable argument from Gandhi, he then proceeded to negate that with a very stupid argument, which I will get to in a second.
First, some context for that stupid argument. Brock eventually stated: “That leads us to the risky behavior that we’ve seen in places like Miami Beach, Florida, where numbers have only increased slightly. Theory number three: where young people are acting as carriers, as doctors are saying they’re returning to other states carrying the virus with them.” A dumb argument in itself, seeing as they’d be infecting other people in Florida along the way to their home states, yet Florida is not seeing cases skyrocketing.
In any case, he eventually said: “Bottom line: health experts say the falling figures in the South might be giving a false sense of security. Do medical experts worry this is emboldening those leaders who said this is a good idea to loosen restrictions?”
Which is when Gandhi gave his stupid argument: “We worry about if there’s a perfect storm brewing. If we remember, this virus always takes 10 to 14 to 21 days to develop. We might just be seeing the early effects of that right now.”
This is a stupid argument because Texas lifted its mask mandate and began to reopen more than 40 days ago, well past the point where one would see this virus act up and develop.
Not to mention that, again, FLORIDA HAS BEEN OPEN FOR MORE THAN HALF A YEAR! And, of course, this is completely ignoring the fact that there are states which NEVER closed, like South Dakota, and there are COUNTRIES which also never closed, like Sweden. And none of them are on the verge of collapse at any capacity – if anything, reopening/never closing ended up HELPING those places.
In any case, it was clear that the people at NBC News were throwing whatever they could at the wall to see what sticks, offering no less than three theories as to why locked down states are seeing surges in cases and why reopening states are seeing drops in cases. Anything to not give credit to the idea that reopening is the best option for ALL states.
Even if one wants to argue that reopening isn’t what’s leading to drops in cases, the fact of the matter is that locked down states have seen surges in cases. The prevailing reasoning behind lockdowns is that they help to slow the spread, flatten the curve, and prevent more and more people from getting sick. And that clearly hasn’t worked.
All lockdowns have achieved is financial and economic strain, mental health issues, surges in child suicide and depression, and a myriad of other problems that wouldn’t be there without lockdowns. And the ONE thing lockdowns are put into place to do – slow the spread of the Chinese coronavirus – they haven’t been able to do. It is evidently clear that lockdowns offer a false sense of security at best (not surprising that commies are trying to say that reopening states are the ones offering a false sense of security, since projection is a commie trait) and crippling, devastating, and often utterly fatal problems at worst, including potentially making the spread of the virus even worse.
Immunity is what people are hoping for, and locking things down only prolongs the issues. Not to mention that I have zero trust that the vaccine is in any way effective in fighting the Chinese coronavirus. That people say you have to get MULTIPLE vaccines is already a red flag. That Fauci has insisted that people who get BOTH vaccines still have to wear masks and social distance is another red flag.
If the vaccines actually worked, surely only one dose would be enough, and we wouldn’t have to continue wearing masks and social distancing since we would be immune.
“Oh, but the vaccine and the masks/social distancing is to protect other people, not ourselves,” liberals might argue. Bull. A vaccine is meant to protect the person GETTING IT. A mask is supposed to protect the person WEARING IT. The idea that they are supposed to protect other people is communist bullcrap meant to coerce people into submission. After all, “you’re doing something good for other people.” That is the appeal that these Leftists use to get people to wear masks and get vaccinated. At no point since the beginning of modern medicine have masks and vaccines been created and used for the purposes of protecting people apart from the person wearing/getting them, apart from surgeons performing surgery on someone with an open wound.
When one gets a tetanus shot, it’s to prevent one getting tetanus and being sick by it. When one gets a hepatitis shot, it’s to prevent one from getting any variant of hepatitis. When one gets ANY shot, it’s for the sake of the person getting it. Seemingly, except for the Chinese coronavirus vaccine, conveniently enough.
And even accepting the premise that those things are, indeed, meant to protect other people, how does it make sense for those WITHOUT THE VIRUS to adhere to this? Someone without the virus can’t spread the virus, and you can tell when someone has it because they will show symptoms. It has been shown that there is no asymptomatic spread of the virus, so why would PERFECTLY HEALTHY PEOPLE have to either wear a mask or get the vaccine if the purposes of those things are for protecting OTHER people from getting sick and not themselves?
If masks are meant to protect others, wouldn’t it make more sense for those who have the virus in their system to have to wear them? But no, it’s the healthy people as well as the sick people that have to wear them.
It’s this contradictory bullcrap that infuriates me about this entire situation, particularly as many insist that what doesn’t make sense actually does make sense and that the measures put into place which clearly haven’t worked are argued to have worked and to continue to work, or at least that getting rid of them would only make things worse when the evidence points to the contrary.
We are told to defer to the “health experts” who hide behind their degrees and pretend as though they are nearly infallible and any challenge to their illogic is nothing but a conspiracy theory created by someone who doesn’t have a prestigious medical degree (though that excuse doesn’t hold up when people with such prestigious medical degrees make similar challenges).
We are told to “follow the science”, as though science was Jesus, by people who, themselves, do not follow scientific reasoning or data. We can EVIDENTLY SEE that lockdowns don’t work, and this has been clear for nearly a YEAR. And yet, these people insist that what “science” tells us is the opposite of what reality and empirical evidence tells us.
Either these people are utterly incompetent morons or have a malicious and nefarious agenda to push, and we can only hope that it’s the former.
“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.”
Years from now, I would hope, people will be able to take a look back at how numerous countries handled the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and come to the understanding that we allowed fear and panic to set in and drive our decisions in the best case, and allowed closeted tyrants to be free to rein in as much power as they could at worst. Hopefully, understanding this, they will come to know that they should not repeat the mistakes of the past and erode their own rights and liberties in exchange for a little bit of false safety.
Likewise, I would hope that they would allow for actual science to be the main driver of their decisions, not bad-faith “experts” who have plenty to gain from the stripping of people’s freedoms.
Because the people of today have largely been led to be as fearful of the Chinese coronavirus as they are about things like cancer, AIDS, etc., and treat it as though it were in any way similar to those diseases.
A recent Gallup survey showcased just how misinformed Americans are about the dangers of the Chinese coronavirus, and how many people who have the virus require hospitalization.
“Less than one in five U.S. adults (18%) give a correct answer of between 1 and 5%,” the authors of the study said. “Many adults (35%) say that at least half of infected people need hospitalization. If that were true, the millions of resulting patients would have overwhelmed hospitals throughout the pandemic.”
By political demographics, we see completely unsurprising results.
10% of Democrats, 26% of Republicans and 20% of Independents were correct when they said between 1 and 5% of COVID patients needed to be hospitalized. But the majority of all, including even Republicans, vastly overestimated the number. 41% of Democrats, 28% of Republicans and 35% of Independents all answered that 50% or more of Chinese coronavirus patients must be hospitalized.
Like the authors of the study said, were that to be the case, the hospitals would have long been overwhelmed with Chinese coronavirus patients. However, we never even came close to that in any state, even the ones that were worst off.
If you remember, President Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to New York back when that was the epicenter of the pandemic, and it was hardly even used. Cuomo whined and moaned about the “lack” of support Trump gave them, but he never even used the hospital ship to treat people in it. That wouldn’t have been the case if hospitals had been overwhelmed.
The reason for this overestimation of how bad the Chinese coronavirus is is quite easy to pinpoint: the fake news media created an environment of fear and panic.
According to an Ivy League-led study (so not exactly a right-leaning one), 91% of U.S. stories in 2020 were negative, compared to just 54% in non-U.S. media, even when there were positive developments surrounding the virus, such as fewer positive cases, deaths, and hospitalizations.
“The negativity of the U.S. major media is notable even in areas with positive scientific developments including school re-openings and vaccine trials,” said the study. “Stories of increasing COVID-19 cases outnumber stories of decreasing cases by a factor of 5.5 even during periods when new cases are declining.”
And while one can’t exactly expect the fake news media to be cheerful during a pandemic, there is a clear disconnect between the percentage of negative stories shared by the American media (91% negative) and the media outside the U.S. (54%). It’s not like things were just that much worse in America than in other places. Italy was very rattled early on, and many European countries “had” to go through multiple lockdowns (I put quotations around “had” because they absolutely did not need to do that. If one lockdown didn’t work, multiple ones logically wouldn’t either).
Even though the U.S. has the most reported cases of the Chinese coronavirus (remember, China stopped counting back in March of last year), the virus was never bad enough that it would warrant constantly negative news stories, even while there were positive developments.
The reason as to why the news were so consistently negative is clear: the fake news media had an agenda to get rid of President Trump. They took the opportunity a pandemic gave them and ran with it, claiming negative thing after negative thing and how Trump was just handling it so, so poorly, blah, blah, blah.
The reality is that he was ahead of everyone in handling the virus. Even while he was in the midst of the illegitimate and unconstitutional impeachment trial (the first one, that is), he was looking to get ahead in handling the virus by taking early action. Action, by the way, which was even praised by one of the Left’s emperor gods, Dr. Anthony Fauci, as having saved countless lives.
But none of that would matter to a fake news media which abhorred President Trump and had no qualms about showing their feelings. Constantly delivering negative news during the pandemic, particularly as it pertained to Trump’s handling of the virus, during a time when people were afraid and easily abused to the point where they would abandon their freedoms in exchange for a little temporary (and as it would turn out, fake) safety and would trust the word of even the most notorious of liars, would be a big help to the Left in defeating President Trump.
Of course, as we know, it wasn’t the negative news stories that allowed for the Left to get rid of Trump. It was the mail-in ballots and general election rigging that allowed them to do it, but such an opportunity was at least helped by the fear and panic the fake news media was setting with their negative coverage. It got a lot of people who would otherwise have voted in person to vote by mail, and if you remember, Trump was far ahead of Biden until they started counting the easily falsifiable mail-in ballots.
But regardless of what actually got the Left to get rid of Trump, there is no denying the reason the news was so constantly negative was to make Trump as unpopular as they possibly could make him. It didn’t work, of course, but the attempt was still made.
And so, they did their best to instill within the American people a great fear and panic which would, among other things like hopefully having gotten rid of Trump, also allow for the communist tyrants to play Stalin for as long as they could, imprisoning anyone who would dare to stand against them and their blatant unconstitutional power-grab.
It is entirely unsurprising that 41% of Democrats, who are most easily fooled by the fake news media, believe that 50% of those with the Chinese coronavirus require hospitalization. Republicans and Independents were, also unsurprisingly, a bit more educated on the facts, though still a surprisingly decent number of them still believed that 50% required hospitalization.
In any case, let future generations judge the actions of those who went along with the fear and panic harshly, learning from the mistakes of their ancestors to never, EVER, allow for tyrants and liars-for-profit to deceive us into giving up our rights and freedoms in exchange for the promise of safety that never even comes.
I’ve shared this quote before in the past, but I believe it is adequate to repeat it here: Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Allow for me to add on to that quote with the reality of what happens to those who do:
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety and will be deprived of both.
2 Corinthians 3:17
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
