Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

Wait…, what?

Yes, you read correctly.

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

First of all, I guess I owe China an apology. 

This wasn’t the “China Virus,” it was a “Swamp Virus,” a Democrat virus, created with the funding of the U.S. Government “Deep State” (The Swamp), with the help of the Chinese Wuhan Lab, and orchestrated by a swamp monster in sheep’s clothing, none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci!!!

Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in.

…,

…,

…,

Now you know how it feels to played for a fool.

It doesn’t feel good does it?

Let me just say it again…,

THIS WASN’T THE “CHINA VIRUS,” IT WAS A “SWAMP VIRUS,” A DEMOCRAT VIRUS, CREATED WITH THE FUNDING OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT “DEEP STATE” (THE SWAMP), WITH THE HELP OF THE CHINESE WUHAN LAB, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

AGAIN…, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

Again, let’s just take a moment to let that all sink in.

…,

…,

…,

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen, and why isn’t there a criminal investigation?”

An excellent question, Tucker, but we all know only republicans get investigated!

What’s wrong with you?!

What we all want to hear about is how “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen!” 

But first…,

“How do we assess the Biden administration’s response to COVID? Well, here’s one marker: it tells you pretty much everything that the White House that is supposedly so committed to science chose as its head COVID coordinator a man with no background at all in science or medicine. His name is Jeffrey Zients.”

“Zients ran Joe Biden’s presidential transition team, that’s his qualification. He’s a former management consultant from Bain [a management consulting company], who sat on the board of Facebook.”

Jeffrey Zients is a political operative. That’s who’s overseeing COVID response for Joe Biden. The good news is because Zients isn’t even close to being an actual scientist, he doesn’t talk like one. Occasionally he says things whose significance the rest of us can clearly understand. Read what Zients said on CNN, and it becomes very clear how the White House understands this pandemic.”

“JEFFREY ZIENTS: And the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Let’s keep up our guard. Let’s follow the CDC guidance. And the CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.”

“There it is. ‘The CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.’ A sentence like that raises so many questions, it’s hard to know where to start. How about here: If the vaccines work, why are any vaccinated people wearing masks anywhere, ever? Seriously. Jeffrey Zients should be required to explain that, slowly and with numbers, so the rest of us who didn’t serve on the board of Facebook can understand. No one’s asked him to explain that, of course, so he hasn’t. Nor has anyone asked Zients just how effective masks are at preventing the spread of COVID.”

“Our public health authorities act as though masks are absolutely critical. But are they absolutely critical? Where are the serious studies that prove that? Do they exist? If they do exist, is there a reason they’re being hidden from us? And, finally, when did masklessness become a privilege? For thousands of years, until 12 months ago, masklessness was the global status quo. Virtually everyone on earth lived without masks. That wasn’t considered weird. Masks were weird. They were unhealthy and menacing.”

“Yet Jeffrey Zients has just informed us that things have changed. Going forward, not wearing a mask, even after you’ve been vaccinated, is ‘a privilege’ — a Scooby snack, a gold star, a pat on the head — that may or may not be granted to you exclusively by the Democratic Party, on the basis of no science, but purely because they’re in charge and you’re not. That’s called public health. It’s absolutely critical to the existence of our species that you comply with it reflexively, without asking questions or thinking about it. This will all continue, Zients explained, ‘across time.’”

“What does that mean, exactly? How long will this terrifyingly irrational exercise continue? For the answer to that question, we go to a man even more partisan than Jeffrey Zients. The nation’s most highly credentialed political operative, Tony Fauci, let us know that, actually, this mask thing is never going to end.”

“CHUCK TODD, NBC: But is the mask going to be something we have with us in a seasonal aspect?”

“DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: You know, that’s quite possible. I think people have gotten used to the fact that wearing masks, clearly, if you look at the data, diminishes respiratory diseases…So it is conceivable that as we go on a year or two or more from now, that during certain seasonal periods when you have respiratory-borne viruses like the flu, people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you’ll be spreading these respiratory-borne diseases.”

‘“A year or two or more from now.’ In other words, never — you’re never taking off the mask. Get ready for a lifetime of filthy wet cotton covering your mouth, reduced oxygen flow to your brain, and a world where every stranger looks the same because no one has a face. When Kamala Harris and her husband kissed the other day while wearing masks, they were giving you a preview of your daughter’s wedding. In a masked world, human beings never really touch each other. Is that public health? No, it’s not public health. It’s a kind of punishment. Tony Fauci is punishing the country — you, us, everyone. The question is: why is he doing that? You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysteria is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic?”

Okay…, now we’re getting to the good stuff (bad stuff), really!

“What do we mean by that? We can’t recommend more strongly a new piece by Nicholas Wade, who for more than 50 years has been one of the preeminent science writers in the world. For 30 years, Nicholas Wade worked for the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times. It ran on Medium [an on-line publishing company]. And the piece explains where the virus almost certainly came from. In it, Wade makes it clear that, more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Say again?

“…more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please continue.  

“Wade lays out a nearly insurmountable amount of evidence that this virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Central China.”

He did use the term “insurmountable amount of evidence.”

“We’ve raised this possibility from the early days of the pandemic. But this piece all but proves it. At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. It’s hard to believe that, but it’s true, and the piece lays it out.”

The question that immediately comes to mind is, why would we want to make bat viruses infectious to human beings in the first place?  Don’t we have enough infectious diseases to deal with?

Secondly, why would America be funding this via a Chinese Lab?

Was Iran and North Korea too busy developing nukes to get in on this?

“Many of the Wuhan experiments fell under the direction of a Chinese researcher Shi Zheng-li. Known as the ‘bat lady,’ she was China’s leading expert on bat-born viruses. Her job was genetically engineering coronaviruses so that they [could] infect human beings, and do so as easily as possible.”

Again…, why?

“The work, Wade notes, involved, ‘doing gain-of-function experiments designed to make coronaviruses infect human cells.’”

“Why was this research going on? You’ll have to ask the scientist who did it.”

You could also ask Anthony Fauci.

But the democrats aren’t going to bring him before Congress, now, and the liberal propaganda fake news media will do their part in hiding the truth.

“But the facts remain, these were some of the most dangerous experiments ever conducted by mankind. And yet we know that China wasn’t taking the necessary safety precautions. And we should not be surprised by that. Several years ago, U.S. diplomatic cables warned about lax standards at the Wuhan Lab. The Wuhan facility was classified as a ‘bio-safety-level two laboratory.’ What does that mean? According to Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers, that’s approximately the same level of safety that you would find in a dentist’s office in America.”

“So that lab, conducting research on the coronavirus, and how to make it transmissible to human beings, resulted almost certainly in infecting a lab researcher and spread from there. The first coronavirus patients didn’t come from the so-called wet market as we heard. That was a lie. The first patients of the coronavirus were employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

“Once again, why would the Wuhan lab be conducting experiments like that in the first place? Well, we know that Tony Fauci had authorized payment for the research. For five years — from 2014 to 2019 — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci runs, and has for decades, pumped money to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance.” 

“The EcoHealth Alliance, run by a man called Dr. Peter Daszak, contracted with Dr. Shi to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.”

“Just before the pandemic became public knowledge — on December 9, 2019 —  Peter Daszak sat for an interview that was streamed online. In that interview, he bragged about how easy it is to manipulate coronaviruses in lab experiments.”

“PETER DASZAK: Coronavirus is a pretty good… You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. It’s spike protein, Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, build the protein. And we worked with Ralph Barrack at UNC to do this.  Insert into a backbone of another virus and then do some work in the lab.”

“Just days after he said that, it became clear that this new version of coronavirus, this novel coronavirus, what we now call COVID-19, was running rampant through Wuhan then China then the world. Since the pandemic began, Peter Daszak, not surprisingly, has appeared on virtually every media platform available to him to deny, in the most strenuous and dismissive terms, that the Wuhan lab could not be in any way linked to the outbreak, since he has very personal motives for claiming that. ‘The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney,’ he said last year. But that’s a lie. It’s not pure baloney.”

“A lot of smart people knew that right away. One of those people is Alina Chan, a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT. She bravely wrote a paper about how the coronavirus’s genome hadn’t changed much over time, and that was odd because that genome had gone through trillions of replications. According to Chan, that fact implied that the virus was designed for human-to-human transmission from the outset.”

“Millions of people have died of COVID-19, so it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame-assignment to figure out where it came from.”

“If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started. And so, the World Health Organization, said it would get to the bottom of it. The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China. And so, it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from. In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded it’s ‘extremely unlikely’ the virus came from the Wuhan lab. That’s not true.”

“The WHO’s investigation into the origins of the virus was fraudulent, and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you’ll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he’s implicated in it, personally.”

“The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had, in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government. There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on in the Wuhan lab, to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the feds halt its funding to the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question, and Nicholas Wade looked into it.”

“Here’s what he found: ‘Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on p.2 of the moratorium document states that “An exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the USG funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.”’”

“And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited.”

“Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci —  possibly along with Francis Collins, the director of the NIH — invoked that special exception in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab, and the deadly experiments that were going on there. The experiments that clearly went so wrong.”

“According to Richard Ebright, ‘Unfortunately, the NIAID Director [Fauci] and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to the pause – preposterously asserting the exempted research was “‘urgently necessary to protect public health or national security — thereby nullifying the pause.”’”

The “national security,” of course, was making sure Donald Trump didn’t get re-elected.

“This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.”

“It’s an amazing story.”

“It is a shocking story.”

Yes, it is.

“In a functional country [a fair country], there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”

I think we can all figure out the answer to that one.

Former White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, has also accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of being “the “father of COVID-19, while adding he thinks that, “Fauci is a sociopath and a liar.”

Even the Nazi’s “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele, wasn’t responsible for as many deaths as our own Dr. Fauci apparently is.

AND THIS IS THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN LECTURING US, FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, ABOUT WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO REGARDING OUR SAFETY, AS IT PERTAINS TO THE VIRUS?!

DOES HE HAVE NO CONSCIENCE?

DOES HE HAVE NO SHAME?

THE ANSWER TO THOSE QUESTIONS ARE “NO,” OBVIOUSLY.

IT JUST MAKES YOU WANT TO THROW UP, DOESN’T IT?

Until Fauci is made to answer all of these allegations, I really don’t want to hear another word come out of his disgusting little mouth.

More COVID “Propaganda by Omission”

On his May 5, 2021 show, Tucker Carlson said, “Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States … The actual number is almost certainly higher.”

According to Politifact.com, a liberal propaganda arm of The Poynter Institute, please see my prior blog dealing with them,

https://mrericksonrules.com/2019/05/06/hello-poynter-institute-its-your-turn-on-my-own-version-of-the-popular-game-show-whats-my-line/

…and according to Bill McCarthy, of Politifact, “Tucker Carlson’s claims about deaths after COVID-19 vaccinations are misleading.”

You mean like the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the first place?  

“Misleading” like that, Mr. McCarthy?

“Tucker Carlson was citing data from the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database, or VAERS. The VAERS system is open to anyone, and reports to it are not verified, making it a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”

VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, is a United States program for vaccine safety, co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.

Soooo, VAERS is “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (the FDA), otherwise known as the Fraudulent Drug Administration, but VAERS is “a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”

Hmmm, how does that work exactly?

McCarthy continues by saying, “The entries in the VAERS database are not enough to determine whether a vaccine causes death or any other adverse event, experts said. People can die after getting vaccinated for any number of reasons unrelated to the vaccine.”

Just like “People can die after getting [the virus] for any number of reasons unrelated to the [virus].”

Is it just like that, McCarthy?

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] analyzed the death reports submitted to VAERS through May 3 and concluded that there’s no ‘causal link to COVID-19 vaccines.’”

I’m confused here.

But, isn’t VAERS “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC)?

So, the CDC is saying their own numbers are misleading themselves?

This may be the first instance I’ve seen of people throwing themselves under the bus!

This is what happens when lies catch up to you.  You’re not only found out to be lying, but you look stupid as well.

“The comments were the latest in a series of controversial remarks by Carlson raising doubts about the vaccines, which clinical trials and real-world studies have shown both safe and effective.”

Safer than taking Hydroxychloroquine?

Just sayin’.

‘“Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States — 3,362,’ Carlson told millions of viewers during his primetime TV show May 5. ‘That’s an average of roughly 30 people every day.’”

‘“The actual number is almost certainly higher than that, perhaps vastly higher than that,’ he added. ‘It’s clear that what is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal.’”

‘“It is exceptionally irresponsible for this man to claim that all these are causal associations. It’s wrong,’ said Dr. Paul Offit, the chair of vaccinology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.”

Yes!!!  How dare he?!!!

Only government authorized “swamp monsters” are allowed to make “exceptionally irresponsible” claims!  Doesn’t he know that?!

“Unlike other official government sources, which flow through consistent reporting channels and get screened by statisticians and analysts before they are made available to the public, VAERS is an open-access system. The reports submitted are not verified before they become public.”

He means unlike other sources which are properly processed through the Democrats’ Gestapo propaganda ministry!  

‘“Anybody can report to it,’ Offit said. ‘If I get a vaccine, or I give my child a vaccine, and I believe that they have turned into the “Incredible Hulk,” then I can write up a one-page report online and submit it, and that then is included. And that’s been done.’”

Oh really?

A disclaimer on the VAERS website says the ‘reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,’ in part because they ‘may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.’ People accessing the database must click an option that says that they’ve read and understand the disclaimer.”

“Offit said VAERS works best as ‘a hypothesis-generating mechanism’ that can tip scientists off to issues for further study, such as the rare cases of blood clots that prompted the agency to recommend a temporary pause on use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”

“In this case, the CDC has analyzed all the reports of death among COVID-19 vaccine recipients that were submitted to VAERS between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 3.”

‘“A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines,’ the agency concluded.”

“To establish causation, scientists need to find proof that an adverse event is significantly more common among vaccinated people than unvaccinated people. VAERS doesn’t provide enough data to do that.”

“As of May 5, nearly 150 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and many of the early shots went to older and more vulnerable people.”

“When you’re giving a COVID-19 vaccine to elderly adults, there are going to be people who die shortly after vaccination because they would have died anyway,” Dr. William Moss, executive director of Johns Hopkins’s International Vaccine Access Center, previously told PolitiFact.

“An estimated 8,000 Americans die every day of all causes, according to the CDC.”

‘“You can get the vaccine and still die from other reasons,’ Offit said.”

One of my questions is, where’s the side block on the news screens showing the running number of vaccination deaths in the U.S. and worldwide?  

Another question would be, how come we don’t hear ONE thing being reported about vaccination deaths?!

Isn’t it odd as well that the usual annual flu has basically disappeared?

Those of us with basic common sense just have to question this.

Regarding the yearly flu vaccines, on average, 140 million people get the shot and on average 183 people die.

Even if the COVID vaccination deaths are less than Tucker Carlson claims, but still three, four, five, or more times higher than the annual flu vaccination deaths, isn’t that news?     

It’s only not news if you don’t want it to be.

Just sayin’.

Let’s review the “COVID-19 stupidness.”

“Stupid is as stupid does,” they say.

And there’s a whole lot of stupidness floating around these days.

Let’s take a look at the “COVID-19 stupidness” we are still forced to put up with.

Number one revolves around getting vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated was hailed as the cure all by the powers that be…, but now they say we still have to wear masks and social distance, anyway, even after receiving the vaccine.

Dr. Fuaci has been quoted as saying he sees us having to continue to wear masks through 2022!

C’mon, Fauci! Isn’t there any common sense associated with your “science” at all?   

And how many masks do we have to wear?

One mask was fine for close a year!

Now you say two masks, or even three masks would be better?!  

Hello, hello, “science” calling…, and “science” is wondering why you’re not answering?     

Next would have to be the airline industry.

They require passengers to social distance at every step prior to boarding the plane, then they cram us in there like sardines.

So much for the social distancing.

Does that make any sense?

Some states continue to keep their public schools closed, even though schools in other countries, and private schools here in America, have demonstrated schools can operate normally without any negative effects.  Not to mention CDC recommendations allow for schools to reopen, with proper safety considerations.

What happened to “following the science?”

Some states have still not allowed small businesses to open, but the big corporate stores, like Walmart, Home Depot, etc. are allowed to operate normally.

Is there some secret these big chain stores need to share with the small businesses so they can open too?

Then we have the situation at our southern border.

Many of these illegal immigrants are being released into our country even though they have tested positive for the virus, and many more are being released into the country without even being tested.

Additionally, untested immigrants and immigrant children are being jammed into holding facilities, without any concern for social distancing. 

But Joe says our schools can’t open and that we’ll be lucky to be able to celebrate Independence Day with our families?

Give us a break with your hypocritic polices, Illegimate Joe!  

The latest stupidness has the great and powerful “scientist,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying the CDC may be updating its social distancing recommendations to 3 foot spacing, since recent tests show there isn’t really much difference between distancing of 3 or 6 feet.

What?!!!

You’re kidding us, right?!

It’s been a year now, and 6 feet distancing has been the standard.

And now, after a whole year, you’re saying 3 feet is OK?!

So, where did the whole 6 feet thing come from in the first place? 

Either it’s proven science or it’s not.

Fool us once, shame on you, Fauci…, fool us twice, three times, four time, five times…, shame on the fools who keep listening to you!

Perhaps the most egregious practice, and most cruel practice, in my opinion, is disallowing visitors into hospitals, nursing homes, etc.

If masks really work, why can’t visitors just wear a mask?

If masks don’t really work (I’m going with this option), why can’t they come up with some other breathing apparatus, or some kind of suit, a visitor could wear to make their visit safe?

Forcing people to recover alone, and in many cases die alone, without having the chance to see their loved ones, should not have even been an option. This practice is just plain evil.  There’s no other word for it.

If the person is dying already, what difference does it make if they get the virus?

I can’t believe that this policy has been allowed to stand this long.

Overall, it seems many people in this country (democrats mostly) have lost any semblance of common sense.

The cure cannot be worse than the problem.

Wake up America!

What goes around comes around.

Restaurant owners in Democrat controlled states and Democrat controlled cities should post signs saying democrat politicians are not welcome, just like restaurants did in these cities to conservatives, or has your memory faded regarding these practices?

So, this type of action has precedent.

And then these signs should remain up even after these lockdowns have been lifted.  

The democrats were all silent regarding this discriminant type of treatment of republicans, so, like I said…, “What goes around comes around.” 

You reap what you sow. 

If these governors and mayors want to destroy all of the restaurants in their states and in their cities…, fine…, just don’t come around later looking to be served a meal.

It only seems right, right?

And who are these bar and restaurant owners who allow these hypocritical liberals to break their own rules?!

How many articles has there been about various democrat politicians showing up for drink or a meal after banning this behavior for the rest of us?

We’ve seen the democrat Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, the democrat Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, the democrat Mayor of Austin, Texas, Steve Adler, displaying their hypocritical behavior,

… along with California Senator Diane Feinstein ignoring guidelines in an airport,

… and the latest hypocrite is Governor Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island, who showed up without a mask at a wine bar after tweeting, “It’s week two of our pause. I know it’s been hard, but I want to thank every Rhode Islander who’s following our guidance. Please, stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with. Together, we can turn our case numbers around.”

What’s all of this “together” talk? It sure seems like she’s not holding up her end of the bargain.

The governor’s office did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Oh, really?

That’s odd.

And she won’t either, because she, of course, feels that she is above any type of public scrutiny…, just like all of these other democrat fascists in training. 

And it seems like there’s a new article every other day.

It’s ridiculous.

And to all of the police out there enforcing these crazy lockdowns, while we recall the police looking the other way, and kneeling before the rioting organizations, while their rioters burned buildings and looted stores…, and now you are hauling small business owners off to jail, blocking the entrances to their businesses, and ticketing these small business owners with exorbitant fines…, you should really consider what you are doing, or soon you won’t have any supporters or any “friends” left either.

When do law-abiding American citizens get shown any respect or loyalty? 

Saying you are only following orders only goes so far.

This is the same excuse the Nazi “SS’ troops and the Nazi Gestapo used.

Just saying you’re following orders doesn’t get you off the hook…, especially at this point in time.

At this early point in time, you can still stand on your morals, quit your police job, and get into another line of work.

Show some integrity, please. 

Most law-abiding citizens support the police, but this too could change, and it’s on the verge of changing.

Following the Science?

For how long and how many times have we heard the liberals decry, “We have to follow the Science?”

Well, apparently, “following the Science” is only a popular liberal catch phrase which is trotted out when it suits their intentions and their politics.

Democrats (blue state governors in particular) have used the China virus as a means to impose a wide range of impositions on our Constitutional freedoms in the name of safety.  

Some based on “following the Science,” and some not so much.  

Usually only when it was politically convenient.

Dr. Richard Besser, for Fox News, says that, “Despite coronavirus, science is NOT telling us to close schools.”

But how could that be?!

We MUST “follow the Science,” right?!

“Sound science, like the coronavirus itself, is apolitical. Most everything else this year — including decisions on whether to close schools — is not.”

I think if we’ve learned anything these last four years, it’s that nothing is apolitical anymore.

Nothing.

“As the pandemic enters its deadliest phase to date, government leaders and school districts are having to make extraordinarily difficult decisions about whether to continue in-person learning amid record communitywide surges in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Excuse me, but these aren’t “extraordinarily difficult decisions” at all.

The Teachers’ Union has made those decisions for our illustrious political “leaders.”  

“New York City’s decision to close schools indefinitely, and the decision in my home state of New Jersey to allow school districts to keep them open, offers a stark contrast in how the two states with the highest death rates for COVID-19 are managing this crisis.”

“As a pediatrician and a parent, I understand the fear, confusion, and even anger that parents and caregivers face today as policymakers grapple with school decisions.”

Can’t you just envision those policymakers “grappling” with those school decisions into the wee hours of the morning?!

“We know that being in the classroom benefits children socially, emotionally and academically.”

Oh, yeah…, so, what’s the problem?

Isn’t it all about the kids?

Of course it’s not.

Huge numbers of these kids have been thrown out with the trash by these supposed caring liberals.

Many of these kids depend on school for at least one or two decent meals each day.

“On the other hand, virtual learning can be a sound option — and when transmission rates rise to unsafe levels, a necessary one — if a student has a computer, a good Internet connection, a quiet workspace, and no special learning needs. For millions of families without these luxuries, however, it’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime.”

Ya…, “It’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime,” but it’s a sacrifice the liberals and the Teachers’ unions are willing to bear for them on their behalf.  

“From a health perspective, it appears that most children fare well if infected, but they can still spread the coronavirus to higher-risk people in their homes, communities and yes, schools. But when schools have the necessary resources and follow strict protocols, in-person learning has worked remarkably well without accelerating community spread.”

Not according to the teachers, apparently.

“Knowing this, we should do all we can to keep kids in school by providing the funds for proper staffing, equipment, protective gear and ventilation systems. Without these supports, we cannot expect schools to remain open.”

Ok, there we go…, we just need to provide more funding.

We should all know by now that it’s always about the money.

The current CDC Director, Robert R. Redfield, says, “Schools are among the safest places kids can be.”

I guess he isn’t considered to have anything to do with “Science.”

“Achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color.”

“However, the science and data now tell us a much more nuanced story, and we must adapt as new information arrives. That is the fundamental value of rapid learning during a crisis. With differing approaches, schools have shown that safe in-person learning is possible.”

“That’s why New York City’s decision last week to close schools seems to be a case of following a rigid plan written before we knew schools could remain open safely. The city’s test-positive threshold of 3% — established well before the school year began — has been eclipsed, triggering closures. Yet a mere 0.23% of students in the city’s public schools have tested positive. In fact, New York schools have been a pandemic success story.”

“Governors nationwide are under pressure to follow New York’s lead and close schools, no matter what the data shows. With nearly 200,000 cases a day being reported in the U.S., some of those cases will undoubtedly be teachers, students and staff.”

Why would governors nationwide be under any kind of pressure to follow New York’s lead?

The state of New York, New York City, Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio have the worst COVID record of any state in the nation.

So, “the Pressure” is on other governors to follow their political lead, not their successful dealing with the virus lead.

Just so we’re clear about that.  

“However, decisions on school closures should be driven by data on transmission linked to schools and not on anecdotes or outdated metrics. Public pressure, I fear, is going to make it increasingly difficult in the weeks ahead for governors to stick to the science-based guidance on school closures.”

“Science-based guidance?”

And “public pressure” has no effect on these slimy democrats anymore.

Their friends, the fake news, liberal propaganda, media will just ignore and spin “the pressure” whichever way they want.   

“In the spring, New Jersey was among the hardest hit per capita by COVID-19, with the nation’s highest death rate. But this fall, New Jersey schools have not been the problem. The state’s governor, Phil Murphy, issued a joint statement with six other Northeast governors last week that said in part: ‘In-person learning is the best possible scenario for children, especially those with special needs and from low-income families.’”

“That’s the crux of why we need to do all we can to keep children in schools. The pandemic has disproportionately impacted Black, Latino and Native American communities with dramatically higher rates of infections, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Where is Black Lives Matter on this issue?

Where are any of the democrats on this issue?

Oh, I forgot…, the election is over, so the democrats can go back to ignoring any of the issues affecting the Black, Latino and Native American communities. 

Just sayin’.  

“Because of the inequitable way schools are funded in much of America, (And whose fault is that?) achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color at the very moment when our nation is forging a new path forward based on racial equity and justice.”

“We know, too, that education is just one facet of what our schools provide. Many families — especially those with parents working full-time, one-parent households, and low-income households — also rely on schools for healthy meals, technology support, and before- and after-hours child care.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities. We need to treat teachers and school staff like the indispensable front-line workers they are and support them as such.”

I think we are, aren’t we?

The teachers appear to be the ones who aren’t comfortable being front-line workers.

Yes, “The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities,” but the “perversions” are much more far reaching than the good doctor understands, or is willing to acknowledge.

“At the same time, we must reject the false choice that we either sacrifice teachers or do harm to our children. In the next critical months, we must come together and follow the science so that the greatest public health crisis in a century doesn’t also become an educational crisis.”

Uh…, the “educational crisis” is already here, and has been here for quite a while already.

Governor “Fredo” Cuomo…, I mean Governor Andrew Cuomo, of New York, would rather see the body count rise than a COVID vaccine under President Trump.

“The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

According to the New York Post Editorial Board, ‘“We can’t let this vaccine plan go forward the way Trump is planning it,’ Cuomo said. ‘We need to fix it or stop it before it does damage.’”

“Damage?”

What kind of “damage?”  

“Cuomo says Trump vaccination plan is ‘flawed,’ and ‘learns nothing from the past.”

Okay, Fredo…, I doubt you have any understanding of The President’s plan, in this regard.

And, what does “learns nothing from the past” mean?

The “past” what?

Your whole perspective and intent is the only thing that’s “flawed” here, Fredo!    

“It’s probably the lowest thing Governor Andrew Cuomo has ever done, and that’s saying something.”

Really, it’s not.

It’s not even close…, but go on.

“On Monday morning, when everyone else was celebrating the spectacular news that Pfizer’s vaccine for COVID-19 looks 90 percent effective, Cuomo, as is typical, reverted to politics.”

“First, he let people die in nursing homes because of his ineptitude.”

Excuse me, but it wasn’t “ineptitude.”

It was by design.

It was imperative to get the COVID-19 death numbers elevated at the time to add to their negative narrative regarding The President’s response to the China virus.

We were constantly being reminded how many people had died from the virus, when in reality the real number was only a fraction of the number we were constantly bombarded with.

How many times during the vice-presidential debate did “cackling Kamala” feel it was necessary to remind us that “over 200,000 people have died from the virus?”

Five times?

Ten times?

More?

In any regard, it was obvious that this was a talking point the democrats valued quite highly…, whether it was really accurate or not.   

“Now Cuomo wants the body count to keep climbing because God forbid President Trump oversees a vaccine effort.”

Actually, it has to do with governmental control now, and not President Trump any longer.

‘“What on earth is Governor Cuomo talking about?’ Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) rightly said in a statement. ‘This is great news and everyone — Republicans and Democrats and apolitical folks — should all be jointly thrilled about the possibility of an effective vaccine.’”

The first mistake you’re making Senator Sasse is that you’re assuming we’re talking about a normal human being here…, when we’re not.  We’re talking about a deranged, power hungry, psycho.

‘“After this nasty virus has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and put millions out of work, it is beyond disgusting that Governor Cuomo would use a glimmer of hope for another worn-out ‘Trump is bad’ talking point. When we get a vaccine, we’re going to need all hands-on deck distributing it as fast as possible — shamelessly politicizing this is dangerous and stupid.’”

I’d lean more towards evil, but, yes, “stupid” and “dangerous” as well.   

“Thank goodness it’s not up to Cuomo about how the nation proceeds. He messed up in New York, he can’t be allowed to fail nationally. Hopefully this puts to rest any idea of Cuomo serving in a Joe Biden cabinet — or even being governor again.”

Au contraire mon ami! 

On the contrary my friends!   

As far as the democrats are concerned, these comments put him at the front of the list…, on both accounts!

China’s virus “crisis.”

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.”  ― John F. Kennedy

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.”

Wait, what?!

Let’s hear that again.

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT INTENTIONALLY MANUFACTURED AND RELEASED THE COVID-19 VIRUS THAT LED TO MASS SHUTDOWNS AND DEATHS ACROSS THE WORLD A TOP VIROLOGIST AND WHISTLEBLOWER told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.”

Well, if you’re a liberal, you can’t be much more credentialed than that…, a scientist and a whistleblower?!!!

It would appear that China calculated the DANGER of the virus to themselves, while recognizing the OPPORTUNITY to enhance their position on economic playing fields all around the world, and especially with the United States, and deemed this trade-off to be acceptable.

Even though the virus originated in China, China comes in ranked 41st for number of cases with 85,223 and only 4,634 deaths.

How could that be?

The US is ranked first in cases with 6.72 million cases and 200,000 deaths.

India is ranked second with 5.12 million cases and 83,200 deaths.

And Brazil is ranked third with 4.42 million cases and 34,000 deaths.

Is it coincidence that three of the top four democracies in the world ended-up being the hardest hit in the world, by far?

And that’s not to mention the collateral damage worldwide regarding the economic, social, general health and mental health impact to all of the countries around the world.

Just some food for thought.

“Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese Communist Party released the virus ‘on purpose.’ ‘Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,’ she responded on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

“Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization [WHO] reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.”

‘“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.’”

“Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: ‘If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated — the way the mutations have naturally evolved.’”

Excuse me Dr. Fauci…, but you have no idea what the hell you’re talking about here.

You have absolutely no idea of what went on in that Wuhan lab.

And, you’re only throwing shade on the idea of the virus being man-made because you and your deep state friends are all a part of problem.

“Other scientists have also panned the idea that COVID-19 served as a sort of bioweapon or was released by a lab.”

On what basis have they “panned” the idea?

These other scientists also have absolutely no idea of what went on in that Wuhan lab, and should just keep their opinions to themselves.

You can always find a gaggle of “other scientists” who will either agree or disagree with whatever narrative you wish to promote.

We are all aware of this now, so citing scientific support really doesn’t add any value to your propaganda anymore.

Just sayin”.

“Fox News previously reported on Yan back in July, when she blew the whistle on China’s alleged attempts to suppress information about its handling of the virus. With a vast network of contacts in Chinese medical facilities, Yan attempted to gather more information about the virus as China blocked overseas experts from conducting research in the country.”

“Her revelations fueled ongoing complaints that the Chinese government failed to tell the world early on about the virus’ threat. Specifically, she believes the Chinese government ignored research that could have saved lives. The State Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

And the ever-complicit fake news media has, of course, chosen to ignore Dr. Li-Meng Yan, while choosing to support their good friends in the Chinese Communist Party.

“In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted ‘that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.’”

‘“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.’”

Please remember that the Chinese Communist party’s fake news is even faker than our own fake news…, so what was said there is to be completely expected.

“Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.”

Now, let’s dive a little deeper down the rabbit hole.

Why would the US have funded the controversial Wuhan lab?

Wait…, what?

That’s right…, the US funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility.

Wait…, say again.

The US funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility.

I ask you…, why in God’s name would we be funding anything the Chinese Communist Party is doing?!

In case you forgot, we are already in debt to China up to our eyeballs, and here we are funding the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility?!!!

I keep feeling our government is incredibly stupid, but then I have to remember they only want us to think they’re inept, when in reality they are corrupt and calculating.

Justin Fendos, a professor at Dongseo University in South Korea, for The Diplomat, an international online news magazine, reports that “Newsweek recently put out some surprising reports that the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) had funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The WIV is the level four research facility suspected by some of being a possible source for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already been on record confirming and defending this funding, saying it was ‘to protect American people from labs that aren’t up to standard.’”

Nice try Mike…, but I’m not biting on that one. Please don’t tell me that you are one of “them” too?!

“According to Newsweek, funding for the WIV occurred in two phases. The first took place from 2014 to 2019, through a $3.7 million project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses. This work was largely led by Dr. Zhengli Shi, known to many as ‘batwoman’ for her years investigating caves in search of new bat viruses.”

Okay, this phase I can understand, being started during Obama’s time in office.

“The second phase began shortly after, with another $3.7 million. Unlike the first, this project appears to have included work on ‘gain-of-function’ research that investigates how a virus can gain the ability to infect a new type of animal.”

Now this second phase is the one I don’t understand.  I’m guessing the Trump administration was just unaware of this funding, and now Pompeo is just trying to justify it somehow.

“Anyone with a vague sense of current events would, understandably, be concerned that COVID-19 might have been produced through this research.”

Ya think?!

“The connections to the NIH would also be unsettling, offering the possibility that the U.S. government may be complicit, having unnecessarily ‘outsourced’ dangerous research.”

Again, ya think?!

I’m not only “concerned” and “unsettled,” I’m disgusted and outraged.

“Although strong denials by both Chinese and American officials and several pieces of scientific research have concluded COVID-19 is not man-made, the connection between the NIH and WIV still behooves critical examination.”

Again, the obligatory denials and supportive research by the co-conspirators is to be expected.

“Why would the NIH want to fund the WIV to begin with?” Professor Fendos asks.

Yes…, exactly…, why would they?

Let’s take a look at the possible lame reasons they are prepared to offer!

“The first, and perhaps most important reason, may be just as Pompeo said: to help bring Chinese labs up to higher safety standards.”

Oh, yes!  This is a major concern of ours.  None of our other social programs in this country could use almost $8 million.  No, not at all.

“Another reason the NIH may have decided to provide funding is to help foster international cooperation and better communication.”

Oh, yes!  We can all see China’s increased willingness to cooperate now!

“A third reason could be the fact that the United States has long held a fierce debate about the ethics and risks of gain-of-function (GOF) research. Critics, such as Harvard epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch, have argued that such work ‘entails a unique risk that a laboratory accident could spark a pandemic, killing millions.’”

Would that include an intentional “laboratory accident?”

“Unfortunately, from the public’s perspective, reports about the connection between the NIH and WIV are at risk of feeding conspiracy theory fires. With some Chinese officials already blaming the United States for the pandemic and the Trump administration appearing intent on blaming China in return without divulging any decisive evidence, it is quite difficult, even for experts, to develop a fully-informed opinion about what exactly happened. And therein lies a dangerous problem: unanswered questions can only deepen peoples’ suspicions about science.”

“Feeding conspiracy theory fires?!

“Chinese officials blaming the United States for the pandemic?!

No “decisive evidence?!”

HOW CAN CHINA, WITH A STARIGHT FACE, POSSIBLY BLAME THE UNITED STATES FOR THIS VIRUS THAT ORIGINATED IN CHINA (MAN-MADE OR NOT) AND WAS INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED TO LEAVE CHINA AND INFECT THE REST OF THE WORLD?!!!!!!!!!

HOW?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Put simply, the circumstantial evidence surrounding the WIV and its connections to the NIH are a bad look for science.”

Not to mention the Chinese Communist Party and the liberal “deep state” in the United States.

And do you think using the term “bad look” is appropriate?

I was thinking more of a term like a “politically corrupt look,” or how about an “inexcusably evil look?”

“As the pandemic rages on, the worst possible thing is for the rumor mill to latch onto uncertainties and convince more people that the voice of science is not to be trusted.”

Translation: The worst possible thing would be for the whole ugly truth to come out about this virus.

“COVID-19 may have begun in a lab, or not. Either way, the only thing that remains certain is that science will be the brightest light guiding us out of the pandemic. Since there will be plenty of time to divvy blame later.”

I’m sorry professor, but there won’t be “plenty of time to divvy blame later” for the 941,000 people who have died from the China virus, so far.

Has COVID-19 become an excuse for everything? 

It seems that almost every company or governmental entity I have called for assistance the last few months always starts with the disclaimer, “due to the COVID-19 pandemic…”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic…:

…you may experience a longer wait time.

…we will not be able to take your call.

…we are limiting inquiries via email only.

…we are unable to guarantee you will receive a response at all.

…we won’t be able to do this.

…and we won’t be able to do that.

Please tell me why customer service should be affected…, when these people are on the phone and can work safely from their homes?

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” —Benjamin Franklin

David Lazarus, Business Columnist for The Los Angeles Times reports, “Among the various things the COVID-19 pandemic has changed, and not for the better, is customer service. Just ask anyone who has tried to contact California’s Employment Development Department with questions about unemployment benefits.”

That goes for the Unemployment Benefits Departments in any state, as well.

“A study last year in the Harvard Business Review found that the average American consumer spends 13 hours a year stuck on hold trying to resolve problems.”

And that seems like a conservative estimate to me.

“A third of disgruntled customers have to make two or more calls to resolve their issue, the study said. Many just give up.”

“More than three-quarters of consumers come away ‘less than satisfied’ with a company’s customer service.”

“And to no one’s surprise, the study found that in many cases, companies design their customer service departments to prevent irate customers from solving their problems.”

Now wait a minute there, Mr. Lazarus, I am surprised by this.

Why would a company design their customer service to prevent customers from solving their problems?

‘“This structure, we argue, keeps a lid on the amount of redress customers are willing to seek,’ the researchers determined. ‘In other words, by forcing customers to jump through hoops, the organization helps curb its redress payouts.’”

Ohhh, I can see that…, but not all customers seeking help are looking to get money back.

What about these customers?

“The Harvard Business Review study found that the larger a company’s market share, the less it cares what customers think of it, in any case. It cited in particular ‘airlines, internet, cable and telephone service providers.’”

‘“This may help us understand why some of the most hated companies in America are so profitable and why customer service, unfortunately, remains so frustrating,’ the study concluded.”

And the COVID-19 pandemic was just sitting there as an excuse too good to pass up.

The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.

It’s ALL about the money (and power), honey.

Yes…, it’s all about the money (and power), honey…, and a rich man’s jokes are always funny.

And it’s all about the priviledged leftist elites gaining more control over our lives, while they live above the law.  Exhibit A would be democrat speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi.

In this case, the China virus is the vehicle being used by various global, corporate, and government entities to either gain more money, more power, or both.

It all seems quite clear.

And let’s be very clear…, the safety of the American people is not the real concern here.

Let’s examine the circumstances surrounding a drug called hydroxychloroquine.

aafrica 1

Hollie McKay of Fox News reports, “It has become one of the most controversial words [one of the most controversial names actually] in the world: hydroxychloroquine.”

“For several weeks, the primarily anti-malaria drug has been touted by President Trump and others as a vital aid in treating those suffering from coronavirus, [although] there is not yet a Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment.”

Ah, yes…, the good old FDA.

No political or monetary undercurrents swaying that arm of “the swamp!”

“So, is there any possible correlation between countries where the drug is routinely administered due to high malaria rates and lower cases of COVID-19? It’s too early to tell, medical professionals say, but it’s part of the investigation process.”

I guess some doctors and scientists are just better at putting two and two together than others.

‘“If you look [at the] countries where malaria is more prevalent and countries where COVID-19 infections are prevalent, you will find a striking difference. This correlation needs to be explored further as this is not just a mere coincidence,’ Dr. David Nazarian, a Beverly Hills-based physician, diplomate at the American Board of Internal Medicine and founder of My Concierge MD, told Fox News.”

I’m sure an effort to discredit Dr. Nazarian has already been launched.

And, fine…, go ahead and explore it all you want, but in the meantime why not utilize this safe drug that seems to have produced positive results?

“The drug initially burgeoned on the scene with an FDA thumbs-up in 1955 [that’s 65 years ago] and has been used as a proven remedy in the treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.”

People have been using this drug safely for 65 years!

But now, all of a sudden, the left, and their cadre of doctors and “experts,” and the liberal propaganda, fake news media are calling the drug “dangerous,” and even saying it should be banned from use.

Why would that be?

You have to ask yourself, why would they be torpedoing this drug that has been used safely for 65 years?

65 years!!!

aafrica 11

“After a very small preliminary study conducted in France in the early weeks of COVID-19, Trump and other physicians pinned it as an aid in preventing the virus’ cells from entering the body’s cells, thus possibly helping clear the infection sooner.”

“Under Trump’s urging, the federal agency passed an emergency order last month, enabling doctors to administer hydroxychloroquine, which goes under the brand name Plaquenil, to coronavirus patients where they deemed appropriate, in practice referred to as ‘off-label prescribing.’”

“While much data is missing from the global coronavirus pie, given the lack of testing and in many cases government accountability to present accurate facts and figures, some science professionals have drawn elemental summations that while countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and swaths of Europe have been battered by the virus, places with high malaria incidences have not — at least not yet.”

“Malaria, an infectious disease that impacts both animals and humans, takes root mostly in the tropical and sub-Saharan pockets of the planet.  The continent of Africa is by far the most impacted.”

“In its most recent malaria assessment, released in December, the World Health Organization points to Africa as having endured some 93 percent, or 213 million of all the 228 million cases documented in 2018.”

“Specifically, 19 countries ferry 98 percent of the world’s malaria onus — all located in Sub-Sahara Africa and India. Six countries accounted for over half of all malaria infections globally: Nigeria at 25 percent, the Democratic Republic of Congo at 12 percent, Uganda at 3 percent, and Mozambique, Niger and Cote de’ Ivoire all at 4 percent. According to the World Atlas, the other plagued places include Pakistan, Ethiopia, Malawi and Niger.”

“So, where do these nations lie when it comes to coronavirus rates? Here are the numbers of coronavirus cases recorded in these countries so far:

Nigeria: 254 cases, 0 deaths (population 191 million)

Democratic Republic of Congo: 0 cases (population 81.3 million)

Uganda: 52 cases, 0 deaths (population 43 million)

Mozambique: 17 cases, 0 deaths (population 29.7 million)

Cote de’ Ivoire: 0 cases (population 24.3 million)

Ethiopia: 55 cases, 2 deaths (population 105 million)

Malawi: 8 cases, 1 death (population 18.6 million)

Niger: 278 cases, 11 deaths (population 21.5 million)

Pakistan: 4,194 cases, 60 deaths (population 197 million)

India: 5,480 cases, 164 deaths (population 1.3 billion)”

“Nazarian pointed out that the confirmed infection of coronavirus in these countries is around 0.1 percent.”

These numbers were as of April 8, 2020.

“Critics have been quick to opine, however, that Trump is hawking a medicine for coronavirus victims without science-stamped ‘conclusions’ pertaining to its effectiveness or safety as a treatment for the novel pathogen.”

‘“If someone thought the drug was protective against transmission, they might take fewer precautions, and the risks to others might then paradoxically increase,’ cautioned Dr. Stanley Weiss, a professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. ‘This is a well-known concern in vaccine trials, where behavior change and potential risks need to be carefully weighed against efficacy.’”

Wow…, that’s pretty weak, Dr. Weiss.  Can’t you do better than that?

“Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has cautioned that hydroxychloroquine is far from being a ‘knockout drug’ and the American Medical Association, the American Pharmacy Association and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacy have also remained wary — even issuing a joint letter warning doctors about prescribing it for the purpose of fending off the coronavirus.”

I don’t think anyone has claimed it was a “knockout drug,” Fauci.

I don’t think there ever will be a “knockout drug” for the China virus, nor does anyone else…, so, why even go there?

“Moreover, Dr. Attila Hertelendy, a professor in emergency and disaster management at Georgetown University, underscored that while there is some preliminary evidence from in-vitro studies that suggest the combo could inhibit coronavirus activity, ‘there is scant empirical evidence to support using antimalarials as an effective and safe treatment for the masses.’”

Yes, we know Doc…, there is “there is scant empirical evidence” to support most of the things all of you “experts” have been recommending.

“When pressed about the dangers, Trump has bluntly responded, ‘I’m not a doctor, but I have common sense.’”

Like I said earlier, “I guess some doctors and scientists [and presidents] are just better at putting two and two together than others.

‘“Hydroxychloroquine is a relatively well-tolerated medicine that has been around for many years, and most people tolerate it without any side effects,’ Nazarian said.”

And that is the truth…, but the truth can be suppressed and misrepresented and ignored to the point that it is not perceived as the truth, at least by by some, any longer.

Linda Nordling for the Sciencemag.org website, points out that, “Although Africa reported its millionth official COVID-19 case last week, it seems to have weathered the pandemic relatively well so far, with fewer than one confirmed case for every thousand people and just 23,000 deaths so far. Yet several antibody surveys suggest far more Africans have been infected with the coronavirus—a discrepancy that is puzzling scientists around the continent. ‘We do not have an answer,’ says immunologist Sophie Uyoga at the Kenya Medical Research Institute–Wellcome Trust Research Programme.”

They say they don’t have an answer, but they attempt to account for this situation with every other explanation possible, other than the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine.

“So, what explains the huge gap between antibody data on the one hand and the official case and death counts on the other?”

“Part of the reason may be that Africa misses many more cases than other parts of the world because it has far less testing capacity.”

“Marina Pollán of the Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid, who led Spain’s antibody survey, says Africa’s youthfulness may protect it.”

Mahmoud Elkazzaz, of Damietta University, on researchgate.net, adds that, “[Africa’s] sunshine could protect against coronavirus by boosting vitamin D levels, study finds.”

“They believe vitamin D may help modulate the response of white blood cells to the virus, preventing them from releasing too many inflammatory cytokines – a problem known to afflict patients with severe forms of the disease.”

“We cannot neglect the role of alcoholic beverages, of which its usage is high in European countries [as opposed to Africa], inhibiting the conversion of retinol to retinoic acid [which aids in fighting the disease].”

The FDA’s own website now states, “FDA cautions against use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 outside of the hospital setting or a clinical trial due to risk of heart rhythm problems.”

BUT this, “Does not affect FDA-approved uses for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.”

So, it’s perfectly okay for some people to take the drug, but others are at risk, depending on why you’re taking the drug?

The FDA then went further in a June 15, 2020 update, “Based on ongoing analysis and emerging scientific data, FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) to use hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 in certain hospitalized patients when a clinical trial is unavailable or participation is not feasible. We made this determination based on recent results from a large, randomized clinical trial in hospitalized patients that found these medicines showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery.”

Then, Sharyl Attkisson, reported that, “Medical journals retract study that claimed hydroxychloroquine is dangerous.”

“The key study claiming hydroxycholoroquine is dangerous has been retracted by the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet.”

“The journals say after the study was published, more than 100 scientists took issue with it, and it turns out the data cannot be confirmed.”

“Among other things, the scientists criticized the methodology of the study. They also questioned why the authors refused to identify any of the hospitals that contributed patient data, or even to name the countries where the hospitals are located.”

“The study’s lead author was Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, a Harvard professor.”

So, is this the kind of credible research that all of these “experts” were calling for?

I guess “credible research” just means research that backs-up your desired narrative, in this case.

It would also not surprise me one bit to find out that Pelosi, Fauci, and all the rest of them were taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure, while at the same time beating The President up over it, and denying it to the rest of us just out of spite to President Trump.

Remember the credo of the liberal elite…, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

In the end, it all comes back to money, which just happens to correlate with the democrats desire to keep the virus scam going.

No “cure” can be allowed before the vast amounts of money to be made from a vaccine are realized, and no “cure” can be allowed while we still have a President Donald Trump.
