The Evening Wrap: Alex Berenson Debunks the Media’s Latest Round of Panic Porn

Alex Berenson – that rarest of endangered animals, a real working journalist – has done yeoman’s work on Twitter in debunking the rampant and intentional disinformation spread by the corrupt news media relate to the Wuhan Virus and the government’s response to it. His new book on the subject, “Unreported Truths About Covid-19 and Lockdowns“, was initially blocked by the evil minions at Amazon, and then shot to the top of the bestseller list once the minions relented due to popular demand.

Now that President Donald Trump has announced his plans to renew his massive campaign rallies around the country in the coming weeks and months, the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda has once again gone into high gear in an effort to convince the nation that we are suddenly in the middle of a “second wave” of the virus, even though there is zero data to support the claim.

Today, Berenson completely debunked this new round of Covid-19 panic porn in 10 easy tweets. Here is what he said:

2/ So: you’ve heard positive tests are up in several states. True. The media refers to these as “cases,” as if positive tests have clinical significance by themselves. They do not. The vast majority of people with positive tests do not become ill enough to need hospitalization…

3/ Much less intensive care or ventilator support. For people under 50, this is true in the extreme. But the daily age distribution of positive tests is rarely if ever supported…

4/ Second: you’ve heard overall hospitalizations are up in some states. This is also true. THIS IS A FEATURE, NOT A BUG. Overall hospitalizations are rising because people are returning to hospitals for elective (and in some cases very necessary) surgeries that were postponed…

5/ Now, in some of these states COVID-related hospitalizations have also risen (though they make up a tiny fraction of overall hospitalizations). Scary, right? No. When people go to the hospital for elective surgeries they are now routinely tested for COVID…

6/ Whether or not they are symptomatic. Hospitals have financial and legal as well as medical incentives to do this. IF THEY ARE POSITIVE, hospitals will report them as COVID patients (since, technically, they are), EVEN IF THEY HAVE NO COVID SYMPTOMS.

7/ This fact accounts for the bizarre disconnect between the fact the number of people going to emergency rooms with influenza-like or COVID-like symptoms is NOT rising (and remains in the low single digits) even in states reporting more hospitalizations…

8/ As well as the fact that fewer hospitalized cases are now progressing to ventilators (I can’t swear to this in every state, but it appears to be a trend)…
9/ And the fact that deaths no longer seem to have any relationship to case counts in many states (true even accounting for the fact that deaths lag). The question you should be asking yourself: why aren’t Europe and Asia seeing post-lockdown spikes if this trend is real?
10/ And don’t say masks. Masks are not routine in Europe. So either COVID is somehow different post-lockdown in Europe (and different in different states, too)… or this is just one last gasp of panic porn.

There. Wasn’t that easy?

Meanwhile, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden weighed in with this:

Quote: “You know the rapidly rising…uh, umm, uh…in with, uh…with, uhhhh, I don’t know, uh…”

Terry McAuliffe is right: Hidin’ Biden really is better off staying in the basement.

Thanks, Dr. Fauci! Thanks, Democrat governors! Thanks, corrupt news media! – CBS reports today that fully 40% of Black-owned businesses are not expect to survive the Fauci/Democrat/media-driven response to the coronavirus.

From the CBS piece:

Jameian Selmon kicked off 2020 with a dozen employees and a full slate of weddings and birthday parties booked for her thriving event-planning company in Minneapolis. Less than four months later, her company is gone — one of hundreds of thousands of black-owned businesses around the U.S. that have closed permanently amid the economic rubble caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

After Minnesota shuttered non-essential employers in March, one client after another called to cancel, costing her $120,000 in business. “As more things got shut down, the weddings for May canceled, then the weddings for June canceled, then July,” said Selmon, 42.

“It was really hard for me to let them go,” she added in recounting the day she was forced to fire her workers. “It’s always been my dream to employ people, and the girls cried. The others, they understood.”

Nearly half a million closures

There were more than 1 million black-owned businesses in the U.S. at the beginning of February, according to research from the University of California at Santa Cruz, which drew from Census survey estimates. By mid-April, 440,000 black business owners had shuttered their company for good — a 41% plunge. By comparison, 17% of white-owned businesses closed during the same period, the UC Santa Cruz research shows.

[End]

Tragic. But Democrats are fine with this outcome, because many of the owners of those now-closed Black businesses will end up on welfare and other federal assistance and become more reliable Democrat voters. The fact that they are pushing yet another round of utterly false panic porn proves that they simply do not care about individual Americans of any color.

All they care about is the obtaining and maintenance of political power. Never forget that.

That is all.

    A bloody pox on all their houses. I pray that God punish every one of the demoncrats and their toady media mouths. But as I said previously Satan probably won’t take them as they will try to fundamentally change Hell.

    That is why Twitter is censoring Alex Berenson.

    (btw, he writes really good books, which is why he could quit his media job and actually tell the truth….)

    Their panic porn successfully tanked the markets today, so the Dems are all good.

      Heh! Traders are such skittish critters. They run at the littlest change in the wind. And the media is all but willing to provide the impetus to stampede them.

    Trump starts his rallies in Tulsa next week. I’m waiting to see what is going to happen the first time he holds a rally in a blue lockdown state.

    More damage to the fake news/Fauci Fraud narrative:

    Basically, two hair stylists who tested positive and had a combined total of 140 clients did NOT infect anyone. Not. A. Single. One.
