Let’s not forget during the current wave of riots and looting that Democrat states are still mostly shut down and they are trying to convince Americans that we are killing fellow countrymen by not wearing face masks to stop the spread of the pandemic. Yes, the Wuhan virus can be deadly. No question many people have died from it. Absolutely there are precautions we should all be taking. But, is the real motive something more than saving lives?
If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening over the past four years, you know we’ve been lied to repeatedly. Not simple little white lies. Astronomically devious, evil lies meant to destroy the very fabric of our freedom-loving country. You wouldn’t know that, however, if you’ve been listening to the “fake news” media. That’s the same media from which you say you just want to get a “second opinion.”
Within weeks of President Trump’s inauguration, some of his most loyal servants were systematically and successfully taken down, one by one. DOJ Director Jeff Sessions bowed to demands for his recusal. General Mike Flynn’s stellar 33-year military career and his life were destroyed based on planted evidence that we now know never existed. American Patriot Carter Page was spied on and his life pretty well ruined. George Papadopoulos was jailed for a crime not even associated with the Russia witch-hunt. Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Cohen and so many others were targeted and destroyed. All because they supported President Donald J. Trump.
The left told you the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based on “evidence”. LIARS.
Democrats tried to convince you that Brett Kavanaugh was a sexual deviant. LIARS.
They said Trump was guilty of bribery in his Ukraine phone call. LIARS.
Democrats said he was targeted for accusations worthy of impeachment. LIARS.
The abundance of lies was there for all to see. Instead, many preferred to listen to the “fake news” media so they could get a “second opinion.” As though liars matter.
Due to that enabling of the anti-Trump media who’ve made no secret of their bias against our President, the lies have perpetuated. No longer are we a nation built on common sense.
When all else failed, the left found yet another “crisis” they didn’t want to go to waste, the Wuhan virus.
America’s initial, fanatically-fearful response to the pandemic was understandable given the very rational concept of “flattening the curve.” Even that, if you think about it, can be blamed on our own pathetic lack of preparedness. Our PPE stockpiles were low, a shortage of ventilators was worrisome, hospitals were too few and ill-equipped, testing by the CDC was an abject failure. In short, we were staring down a double-barreled catastrophe if we didn’t act quickly and decisively. There was simply no time to waste arguing about what had to be done: a total shutdown of our economy combined with self-isolation, stringent regulations, and masks on all.
We complied without asking questions because it made sense. We saw a dizzying array of models that scared the crap out of us. The number of deaths, projected to be 2.2 million, was unfathomable. Transmission of the virus was frighteningly easy, we were told. Imminent, they said, unless we followed their strict orders. Stay six feet away. Three aisles over. Scrub our clothing. Wipe down goods. No masks necessary, at first. Then masks were required on everyone. We lived in total fear. And that made us easy to control.

Then a rather peculiar thing happened. Trump and the American people began seeing some serious flaws in the advice of the “experts.” The models turned out to be grossly inaccurate, not even close to the actual numbers. Recommendations by the fed’s scientific community changed almost daily. Rumors that those “experts” were controlled by anti-Trump leftists became believable as many of us googled for truth. Could they simply be trying to take Trump down, again?
To be honest about the pandemic we must assess real numbers, not models skewed by leftists with an agenda. After all, these numbers are guiding life-altering decisions about whether or not to shut down our economy, right?
Lindsey Graham seems to think so. Or at least that’s what he said recently in response to the WHO’s disastrous handling of the pandemic. As a Republican who sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee, Graham’s influence matters.
Recently, he left no doubt as to who he thought should be running things at the W.H.O. “I have a lot of respect for Bill Gates and his work in the public health arena,” he said. “The Gates Foundation, under Bill and Melinda’s leadership, has a reputation for investing in programs which are well-run and produce results.” Seriously, Lindsey?
As stated in my recent article entitled, “Same Globalists Who Bungled Pandemic Pushing to Control the World”, the prediction models insisted upon by Drs. Fauci and Birx were way off. They were based on data from the IMHE (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) and Imperial College of London. That article is a must read to understand who is involved in corruption around the handling of this pandemic. And, somebody might want to tell Lindsey that the Gates Foundation “recently provided massive amounts of funding to both” of the companies behind the models. In fact, he founded the IHME. Was that purely by chance?
Isn’t it rather coincidental that both Gates-funded models caused massive shutdowns worldwide due to erroneous results? Whether it was by gross negligence or intentionally misinforming, choosing Bill Gates as the new head of the CDC would be an unmitigated disaster.
Gates has also advocated heavily against hydroxychloroquine and for keeping the world shut down until there’s a vaccine. That’s not surprising given his funding of a global vaccination program to be disseminated in conjunction with his ID2020 Alliance program designed to track every citizen’s movement at all times. The consequences of a WHO led by Bill Gates is especially worrisome considering his far-from stellar record on global vaccines.
The widely-wrong Gates’ models are all the more suspect after reading an article that appeared in Forbes recently. If true, it throws doubt on the entire numbers game attributed to the pandemic.
Entitled, “The Most Important Coronavirus Statistic: 42% Of U.S. Deaths Are From 0.6% Of The Population,” the author claims that nearly half of all deaths from the pandemic in America occurred because of bad state-wide decisions. He says nursing home and residential care facility policies are to blame. If right, that changes everything.
According to the author, he and a Public Policy Professional/Health Care Policy Expert at The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity conducted a study to determine how many deaths were caused by faulty decision-making. They reveal their calculations in an online spreadsheet that’s easy to read. Based on nearly criminal directives from the governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, among others, the high rate of deaths due to the Wuhan virus could have been avoided.
Having just surpassed 100,000 deaths in America, the study is worth reviewing. The authors claim that 42% of the total deaths in America by the Wuhan virus can be attributed to wrong-headed decisions regarding long-term care facilities. Specifically, those governors ordered nursing homes to admit COVID patients into their facilities. Had better precautions been taken, the real number of COVID deaths would reflect about 58,000. That’s more in line with a bad case of flu!
“An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications” from 2017-2018, according to the CDC. It’s hard to imagine such a high number that so few of us paid attention to at the time. But, we barely noticed. Nor was there ever mention of shutting our country down.
From 1957-1958, the Asian flu killed “1.1 million worldwide and 116,000 in the United States.” But, according to one eye witness account, America didn’t shut down. The National Football League played on and the economy continued to function. “As Rhode Island doctor and author Andrew Bostom notes, the federal Centers for Disease Control now say that the infection fatality ratio of COVID-19 is 0.27 percent, almost equal to the 0.26 percent of the 1957-1958 Asian flu.”
During the 1968 Hong Kong flu, the “estimated number of deaths was 1 million worldwide and about 100,000 in the United States. Most excess deaths were in people 65 years and older.” Still, as the New York Post reports: “schools were not shut down. Face masks weren’t required or even common. Though Woodstock was not held during the peak months of the H3N2 pandemic (the first wave ended by early March 1969, and it didn’t flare up again until November of that year), the festival went ahead when the virus was still active and had no known cure.
“Life continued as normal,” said Jeffrey Tucker, the editorial director for the American Institute for Economic Research. “But as with now, no one knew for certain how deadly [the pandemic] would turn out to be. Regardless, people went on with their lives.”
As more people come to understand the truth about the Wuhan virus, a rush to reopen states will be inevitable. We are already, thankfully, seeing that. But, there is one big obstacle: the Democratic Party. Only Republican states seem willing to get our country back on track. States governed by the Democrats are pushing back, creating fear about a second wave. We must wait for a vaccine, they warn. Even if it means a total destruction of our economy. Are they even credible anymore?
While every American should want what’s best for our country, the truth is that a recovery will undoubtedly benefit Trump to Biden’s detriment. After all attempts to topple the President over the past three years have failed, could the Democrats stoop so low to purposely damage the economy as a final attempt to take him out? You bet they could, and already are.
According to the left’s idol and father of community organizing Saul Alinsky, their goal must be achieved by any means necessary. We should take them at their word.
In his 70s blockbuster book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines thirteen tactics to be used by the left to achieve their goals. I break them down in my book, Rules for Deplorables: A Primer for Fighting Radical Socialism. Tactic #6, “a good tactic is one your people enjoy,” has come into play recently with some pretty wacky rules to which Democrat leaders have subjected their citizens.
In California, for example, officials “closed a popular skate park and filled it with 37 tons of sand in hopes of keeping residents away.” I know how liberals think, I used to be one. I’m sure they sat in their cushy offices thinking this was a wily, hilarious way to control their citizens. It backfired, thankfully, when kids began using it to ride their dirt bikes. Way to fight back using Alinsky’s Tactic #12, “the price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Kudos to those who refused to be controlled by politically-motivated leaders.
Think about this: AA meetings cannot convene but liquor stores are allowed to remain open.
What logic closes churches but leaves abortion clinics operating? Why can people run along beaches but can’t sunbathe or surf? Or Mom and Pop shops selling everyday needs have to close while Walmart can stay open? How come a family of four must stay isolated in their home but can’t go out boating together? There comes a time that we must stand up and say enough, this is nonsense.
How is it that a decision-making health administrator from Pennsylvania can move her 95-year-old mother from a nursing home while ordering everyone else’s elderly relatives to stay put? Or, the husband of the governor of Michigan can request special treatment to launch his boat while everyone else must stay out of the water? What about the “fake news” media reporter chastising passersby for not wearing masks as a bystander points out the cameraman isn’t wearing one himself?
We have been “masked” into submission, America. And, it’s being politicized. From the facts slowly emerging, it’s becoming questionable whether masks even help. In checking the CDC’s website, they’re instructing this: “If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask).” Are you confused yet?
I’ve seen enough. Yes, I’ll continue to carry my mask should a need arise. But, I’ll be using my own judgment going forward. Those who feel wearing one is needed based on their own health concerns should continue to do so without mask-shaming. But for Democrats who think getting Trump out of office is more important than salvaging what’s left of our economy, I have a message for you: you will fail yet again.
Our country will reopen soon because the left has forgotten one of Alinsky’s most important tactics, #7: “a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Americans do not stay still for long and never admit defeat.
When that happens, we will remember the stark contrast between Trump and Biden in dealing with this disaster. Leadership differences between the two men have been laid bare and will reflect decisive voting in November.
We will wake up to the left’s games and revolt by reopening our states en masse. When we do, red states will be standing strong, and those blue states wanting bailouts will be left in shambles.
