Trust me, this has happened all over the country. – Emails made public yesterday reveal that Democrat Nashville Mayor John Cooper and his staff intentionally withheld information related to the number of bar-related China Virus infections in his city because the numbers were too low.
From a story at the New York Post:
The mayor of Nashville and his health department have been accused of withholding data about the low number of COVID-19 cases linked to bars and restaurants in the city — all while placing strict restrictions on the venues.
Internal emails published by FOX-affiliate WZTV purportedly show top officials in the Tennessee city discussing the low figure and whether certain data should be made public.
In a June 29 email correspondence, Benjamin Eagles, the senior advisor to Nashville Mayor John Cooper asks Metro Nashville Health Department epidemiologist Leslie Waller for countywide contact tracing data over the last 14 days.
“Looking to see what sort of activity has been most related to new cases,” Eagles wrote, according to the email.
Waller, in response, asked for time to pull the data together before writing, “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?”
“Correct, not for public consumption,” Eagles replied, according to the report.
A month later, a local reporter asked the health department about a claim that there are only 80 coronavirus cases traced to bars and restaurants.
“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 very big problem?” Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asked, according to WZTV.
Health department official Brian Todd then asked five health department officials, “Please advise how you recommend I respond,” according to the news outlet.
One of the officials whose name was cut off replied, “My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site,” the report said.
So, why would these Democrats do this? Isn’t the answer obvious? Of course it is.
Naturally, the Mayor’s office responded by hilariously saying that the emails are “taken out of context.” No curious journalist could summon the personal integrity to ask exactly in what possible “context” these emails could be placed that would make their content and obvious intent look any less evil?
Here’s the most repugnant thing about this episode: Nashville and its despicable Democrat Mayor are in no way unique. In the months to come we are going to gradually discover that this same kind of data manipulation designed to keep businesses closed and keep people frightened, cowering in their homes was engaged in by Democrat Mayors, County judges and other public officials all over the country.
What our nation has suffered through for the last six months has been a highly-organized, intentional effort by the Democrat Party to use the China Virus as a tool to destroy the U.S. economy for pure political advantage. If you think the Democrat mayor of Nashville is the only Democrat mayor or county judge of governor who intentionally withheld and manipulated data related to the viral gift from China, you are living in an alternative universe.
And all of this, every bit of it, was willingly facilitated by our utterly incurious, utterly corrupt news media, which refuses to make any effort to hold Democrat officials accountable unless – as happened in Nashville – the information is spoon-fed to them.
An honest, properly functioning media establishment would now be assigning multiple reporters in every major city to demand the release of all COVID-related communications from mayoral offices in light of this Nashville scandal, but that won’t happen. Because our media, like the Democrat Party, is a raging dumpster fire fueled by dishonesty and anti-Americanism.
That is all.
