To the Left, lying is as natural as breathing. They are pathological liars and often times cannot help but lie in order to save their own behinds. They will lie about big things and small things. They will lie about everything so long as they get their way. Regarding the virus alone, they have already lied about the death numbers in a number of ways, from counting gunshot wounds as COVID deaths to lying about the total number of deaths, with the real number being around 6% of the reported death toll (roughly 10,000).
They are little dictators and this much has been shown for the past few months in particular. However, in Nashville, Tennessee, the mayor of that city is in deep trouble because of the possibility that the city knew, for some time, that bars and restaurants hardly contribute to Chinese coronavirus cases, but they maintained the tyrannical shutdown orders and even intended to keep such knowledge away from the public.
According to The Daily Wire: “A Nashville city council member is accusing Nashville Democrat Mayor John Cooper’s office of concealing low coronavirus outbreak numbers tied to restaurants and bars in the area, claiming that they are ‘fabricating information.’”
Fox 17 News also reported on Wednesday: “The coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low that the mayor’s office and the metro health department decided to keep it secret.”
The way in which this has been found out is through a series of emails between a senior advisor to the mayor and a health department official. Fox 17 reported: “The discussion involves the low number of coronavirus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and how to handle that and most disturbingly how to keep it from the public. On June 30th, contact tracing was giving a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes were found to be causing problems with more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.”
In an email, health department official Leslie Waller asked senior advisor Benjamin Eagles: “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?”
Eagle responded with: “Correct, not for public consumption.”
One month after the fact, Tennessean reporter Nate Rau asked the following question to the health department in an email: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a big problem?”
Health department official Brian Todd reportedly forwarded the email to five other officials asking how to answer the question. One official responded: “My two cents: We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site… We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be ‘because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.’”
Isn’t this just rich? Seemingly, bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases of the Chinese coronavirus in that particular area of Nashville, but instead of being truthful and showing the right numbers, the local government decided to inflate the numbers a bit (though that “80 cases” is still extremely low and would naturally lead to the kind of question that Rau asked because there would still be no reason to shut down those businesses with those numbers) and lie to everyone about the true number of cases and how little risk there seemingly is from going to bars and restaurants.
What benefit is there to lying to people and shutting down those types of businesses when there is seemingly such a low risk? And don’t tell me: “Well, they said that the numbers were increasing all the time and things could be getting worse, so that’s why they did it.” Really? They prioritized an area that yielded low cases over areas where there was more risk? That would be like sitting in a car in front of a minefield, looking at alternative paths, finding one that is fairly rocky, and deciding that the rocky road is anywhere close to as dangerous as the minefield.
That is, of course, if we assume these people to be acting in good faith, which I do not trust that they are. The Left loves dictatorships and will attempt to become one at every given chance. This was proven by Cuomo, Newsom, Whitler, and now, by the government in Nashville.
They didn’t shut down the businesses because they yielded a lot of Chinese coronavirus cases or because they were at great risk of doing so. And even if they did it for these reasons at one point, the data came back that it was largely safe to open them back up, and still chose not to do it and chose to keep this a secret from the public.
They shut the whole thing down because THEY COULD. More importantly, because they know that a heavily-dampened economy would be bad news for Trump come November. With a rebounding economy, Trump’s chances of reelection also rebound. The Left doesn’t want that to happen, so certain sacrifices (yours) must be made. Your business must be shut down, unless a local government official with a “D” next to their name wants to use your services. You must risk being furloughed or your job being lost entirely or your business shutting down permanently (60% of them so far will) for the benefit of the Communist, I mean, Democrat Party.
And the people cannot be made aware of this because that would, obviously, cause an uproar in the local area, which they would rather avoid. The Left in Nashville would rather quietly put a pillow over the head of small businesses and suffocate them quietly, rather than let people know how much of a monumental failure (at best) they are.
Now, you could be thinking: “Well, how do we know if these emails are legit? They could have been faked by some right-winger trying to get Democrats in trouble.” Fair question. They could be fake. But they have been verified as real by a city council member.
City Councilmember Steve Glover reportedly asked a government attorney to verify if the emails were real and the attorney responded: “I was able to get verification from the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health that these emails are real.”
Glover, upon discovering this, accused the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health of “fabricating information. They’ve blown their entire credibility. It’s gone, I don’t trust a thing they say going forward… nothing.”
He added: “We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds, literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments, etc., and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal!”
Fox 17 News concluded in their report: “Again, we weren’t told by the mayor’s office this wasn’t true. We were told to file a Freedom of Information Act request. Which allows us now to ask the question: why are you keeping this from us? Why would you even want to? It’s just the real numbers and what could possibly be an honorable motive?”
Any government official who acts in good faith would want to let the public know whether some activity would be safe, particularly if it helps alleviate some economic stress and allows jobs to return and businesses to open. If the data says that something is relatively safe, a good faith government official will act accordingly and allow it. At the very least, he would tell the people this bit of good news in a time when there seems to hardly be any.
What conclusion, then, can we draw from the fact that the government officials in Nashville did not tell anyone this, did not deliver those numbers, that data, or the good news, and did not act according to the data presented, opening things back up? Naturally, the conclusion reached is that these are not government workers acting in good faith. They are not public officials who are interested in serving the public.
These are mini-dictators, holding on to whatever power they can keep for however long they can keep it. Seemingly, the idea is that if Biden wins, “the virus will just go away.” This could mean easing (some) restrictions, but no communist ever gives up power so easily. They have it. They will keep it until they no longer can.
They look upon China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela with both adoration and envy, wishing they could wield the power those in government in those countries can. That is as close to absolute power as people can reach and these American dictators want as much of that kind of power as they can get, U.S. Constitution and civil liberties and rights be damned.
The worst part is that they deceive themselves into believing they are doing something “for the greater good”. They believe themselves to be the good guys when they suffocate small businesses into permanently closing. “There is a dangerous virus out there!” they repeat to themselves to justify the injustices they commit against the people that elected them.
This is why it’s so important to kick Democrats and Leftists out of whatever office they hold. I don’t think there has ever been another time in American history when the Left has more deserved to be utterly defeated and humiliated, to the point where they would be thrown into the ash heap of history. And I’m not just talking about their response to the virus. I’m talking about their hatred for the very institutions which keep us safe and free. I’m talking about the corruption they have shown in the past decade alone, trying to undermine and sabotage an administration they vehemently disagree with. I’m talking about their promotion of ABSOLUTE FILTH in the form of a film that is borderline child pornography.
The modern Left is so comically perverse you would think they came straight out of a fiction book where the bad guys are clearly evil and there is no depth to their character. They have demonstrated, time and time again, how utterly unfit, AT BEST, they are to run a lemonade stand, let alone an entire world superpower.
If it weren’t for the Left’s clear attempts at cheating this election, I honestly would not be surprised if Trump ended up winning all 50 states, the Left is that detestable and hated.
I do hope, however, that whatever cheating they try to pull off will so backfire as to make the 1984 election appear to be a fairly close contest.
God knows the Left deserves such a catastrophic fate.
