Sunday News Roundup: Portland Riots Get Worse and Fauci Reveals the Truth About a Vaccine

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of climate alarmist heads exploding. – In his statement rolling out his executive orders on Saturday, President Donald Trump (I till never tire of typing those three glorious words) had the following to say about the “Green New Deal” and its juvenile sponsor, AOC:

“They want to raise everybody’s taxes, everybody, and they want to do the Green New Deal, which will decimate our country and decimate,” Trump said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.

“It’s ridiculous, it’s childish. I actually say the Green New Deal is childish. It’s for children, it’s not for adults,” he said, without referring by name to the policy’s key architect, New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez.

[End]

Fact Check: He’s right.

The “Green New Deal” is in fact a childish and un-serious document, a series of socialist/communist policy proposals from a segment of our society that lives in a fanstasy world and wants to force the rest of us to either live there with them, or – preferably to them – die. Make no mistake about it, these people hate you and would much rather you were dead.

Thanks to President Trump for reminding everyone of that reality.

Speaking of reminders… – here is what societal menace Anthony Fauci had to say about the stupidity of wearing masks back in March:

“Right now, people should not be wearing m…there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”

By the way, that advice given back in March was completely consistent with the little menace’s position on mask-wearing that he has held for many years. Yet, today, he has suddenly morphed into not only advocating the wearing of masks, but also the wearing of goggles to protect the eyes.

Ask yourself this: What changed? The science didn’t change. The data didn’t change. Just the politics and the priorities of his masters in the Democrat Party. That’s all that changed.

The man is a menace to our entire society.

Oh, hey, speaking of the little menace to society… – After spending the past four months breathlessly touting a miracle vaccine as the only answer to COVID-19, Fauci started walking back the hype:

Oh. You don’t saaaayyyyyy…

From a piece at The Hill:

White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci said public health measures will likely still be needed to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control even with the development of a vaccine as it could end up being effective just half of the time.

“We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50 percent or 60 percent. I’d like it to be 75 percent or more,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Friday during a webinar hosted by Brown University, according to CNBC.

“But the chances of it being 98 percent effective are not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach,” he said.

[End]

Ok, so, what he is telling you here is exactly what I’ve been telling you since March: That a COVID-19 vaccine will be just like the annual flu vaccine, i.e., not a “vaccine” at all, but a treatment that is only going to be marginally effective.

Fauci’s final sentence there is very telling, and something he never focuses on because it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money: What we really should be doing as a nation is moving on with our lives and focusing on protecting the most vulnerable among us – the elderly and people with underlying conditions – and developing effective treatments for this virus that save lives of those who catch it.

You know, like Hydroxychloroquine, which Fauci also refuses to endorse since it won’t make him and Bill Gates any money, either.

This man is a menace. Period.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – The riots continued to escalate again last night, their 77th consecutive night without relief. As usual, we only know this through the efforts of real journalist Any Ngo, who risks his well-being every day to report the truth.

The Antifa/BLM threats to residents continue to escalate:

Oh, hey, guess what? The police declared a riot. Again.

Lots of arrests being made. But of course, the local Soros-funded DA just lets them right back out onto the streets:

At this point, it is once again obvious that communist Democrat Governor Kate Brown and communist Mayor Ted Wheeler have no intention of allowing their state and local police to protect the population and shut these rioters down.

These people will not stop until they are stopped. It’s not complicated.

That is all.

Deborah Birx Surrenders to her Character Assassin

Birx predictably caves to Pelosi. – In one of the most disgusting bits of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Deborah Birx played her role to the hilt on Sunday after despicable Nancy Pelosi had made rude and condescending comments about her performance over the past few months. Pelosi, of course, laughably contends Birx has been too loyal to the President and has failed to follow Anthony Fauci in making blatantly false and conflicting statements designed to whip up public hysteria.

So, what does Birx do to defend herself from the Speaker’s unfounded attacks? Why, she lavished praise on one of the most obviously corrupt politicians in American history and went all Fauci about the coronavirus, of course.

From a piece at ABC:

“I think the president is spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee,” Pelosi said. “So I don’t have confidence there, no.”

Pelosi doubled down on her criticism of Birx again on Monday, taking her to task for not challenging Trump about the outbreak and the administration’s lack of a national coronavirus plan.

“I don’t have confidence and anyone who stands there while the president says, ‘Swallow Lysol and it’s going to cure your virus.’ … I don’t have confidence in somebody when the president says it’s a hoax, it’s magic,” Pelosi said on CNN. “She has enabled [him].”

“This administration has not had a strategic plan for the six months we’ve known about the virus,” the California Democrat continued. “There has to be some responsibility, so if the president is saying these things, who is advising him that this is OK and enabling that to happen?”

Birx responded to the “no confidence” comment on CNN on Sunday by complimenting Pelosi before defending her own credibility.

“I have tremendous respect for the speaker. And I have tremendous respect for her long dedication to the American people,” Birx said.

Raising a recent article from the New York Times, which portrayed Birx as someone who at times tailored her analysis of the pandemic to better suit the politics of the administration, Birx insisted her response is driven by data, not politics.

“I have never been called pollyannish, or nonscientific, or non-data driven,” she told CNN Sunday. “And I will stake my 40-year career on those fundamental principles of utilizing data to really implement better programs to save more lives.”

Birx also warned that the pandemic has entered “a new phase,” contradicting the president’s persistently optimistic predictions as he pushes schools to reopen for full in-person instruction and resists any reversals on reopenings.

“I want to be very clear: What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread. It’s into the rural as equal urban areas,” Birx told CNN. “To everybody who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus.”

When asked about a prediction there could be 300,000 deaths by the end of the year, Birx said, “Anything is possible.” She went on to emphasize social distancing and suggest that some Americans in multi-generational families should start wearing masks inside their homes and assume they already have the virus.

[End]

Let’s start by noting that ABC refuses to point out that Pelosi is outright lying when she accuses the President of telling people to “swallow Lysol,” something that never happened. Let’s also note that the President has never, not one time, referred to the virus itself as a “hoax” as Pelosi falsely contends in this piece without correction by ABC. He has referred to the media/Democrat efforts to whip up hysteria about it a “hoax,” and that is a perfectly accurate description of what the media and Democrats have done.

Now to Birx.

Her response is, in a word, pathetic. Her slavish praise of an utterly corrupt tyrant is undeserved and frankly disgusting. It is a sign of weakness and a gesture of surrender. Her comments about the virus entering a “new phase” simply parrot pronouncements Fauci has made repeatedly, offering fear without giving any specifics, a Fauci core competency. Her advocacy that families start wearing masks in the home – after telling the American public on national TV just 3 months ago that masks were completely ineffective at preventing the spread of the virus – amount to 17th century-style blood-letting quackery.

Prior to her Sunday interview, the White House properly defended Birx from Pelosi’s character assassination:

Indeed, the Speaker’s attacks on Birx’s character were so beyond the pale that I almost wrote a post on Sunday defending her myself, but I decided to hold off until I saw Birx’s response. I’m glad now I hit that pause button.

Following Birx’s unilateral surrender to the Speaker, the President had a very predictable response:

See, President Trump doesn’t like surrender monkeys and they don’t like him, which explains the whole “never Trump” movement led by gutless wonders like Stephen Hayes, Max Boot and Bill Kristol.

The worst mistake President Trump has made during this entire pandemic was to listen to Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx over the advice of other advisors. Following their advice is why our nation is in the situation it is in today.

The best response the President could have for the good of the nation today would be to say “Fine, Nancy, I don’t have any confidence in Dr. Birx either, and she’s fired. Come to think of it, Fauci’s fired, too” and start taking advice from real doctors who treat real patients, and from real parents who have real kids who have already lost a year of learning due to our national insanity over this virus.

Then we could all sit back and watch every leftist head on the face of the earth explode simultaneously. It would be glorious.

That is all.

EPIC: Jim Jordan Pummels a Dissembling Anthony Fauci in Friday Hearing

Anthony Fauci, the most clear and present danger to the survival of the American Republic today, appeared before some committee or other in the House of Representatives Friday morning. There he had to face a Jim Jordan who was armed for bear, determined to expose Fauci for the raging hypocrite he truly is.

I don’t have time to transcribe the clip below, but you should take the time to watch and hear it. As you do, you will see Fauci repeatedly refuse to admit to the obvious fact that the enormous crowds of protesters and rioters we saw throughout the month of June and have continued to see in lesser numbers throughout July helped to spread the Wuhan virus. You will also see Fauci claim that he never opines about whether or not certain specific group activities – like going to church or going to the gym or going out to dinner – should be allowed or banned.

As you watch him make these claims to Mr. Jordan, remember that Fauci has in fact issued such opinions many, many times. He has in fact advocated that church attendance be drastically limited. He has in fact advocated for the closing of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, sporting events and many, many other types of businesses. His pronouncements and opinions have in fact served as the very basis for putting millions of working Americans out of jobs and destroying hundreds of thousands of American businesses over the past four months.

But, when challenged by Jordan to simply admit that enormous crowds of rioters, looters and bombers obviously would help to spread the virus, Fauci suddenly finds himself unable to express an opinion.

Watch:

This little man is a menace to your freedoms and to our very way of life.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Americans Must Stop Listening to Fauci and Birx

The greatest deflection tactic in American history took place on Thursday. – Here it is:

Note the time stamp on that tweet. It was put out by the President 16 minutes after the Trump Administration released the GDP numbers for the second quarter. Those numbers weren’t good; but then, no one expected them to be good, given that the second quarter was when our country went literally insane on the catastrophic advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci (more on that little menace to society in a moment).

President Trump obviously didn’t want to see the corrupt new media mis-reporting on those numbers as the lead story for the next several days, so he put out the single most magnificent troll tweet since Twitter was invented. Every corrupt reporter and editor and talking head and idiot Democrat/communist in America immediately exploded with rage and hysteria, which was exactly the reaction the President had wanted to achieve. Coverage of the down economic quarter pretty much evaporated.

Late in the day, his goal achieved, the President explained the tweet by basically saying, ‘hey, I was just asking a question.’

Hilarious. He’s the cat-person with a laser pointer; the corrupt news media is his cat.

Birx and Fauci roll out their next tool to control your behavior. – In a TV interview on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci told the corrupt talking head that “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it.” Thus does the media campaign to pressure governors and the President to require goggles or eye shields begin.

On Thursday, the Queen of Scarves, Dr. Deborah Birx, joined in the brainwashing campaign, saying “Here’s the thing about the face shield in addition to the mask: the mask is to protect others. The thing about the face shields – we think that that could protect the individuals and that it would decrease the ability for them to touch their eyes and spread [the] virus as well as those droplets coming towards them.”

Remember: These are the very same two “doctors” who just 3 months ago were telling you not to wear masks because they are ineffective at stopping the spread of a virus and are actually harmful to your own health. But now, masks have somehow become the key to everything. You must wear them, not only when you enter a store or restaurant or gym or any other public facility, but anytime you freaking go outside.

It’s not about protecting your heath, it’s about controlling your behavior.  These are not just random remarks by these two “doctors”: They are intentional, calculated statements designed to start another media-led panic. Why? Because the “case” numbers related to the China virus are once again falling.

You are the frog, and they are boiling you.

Speaking of media-led panic campaigns… – The corrupt national media will refuse to report it, but their panic campaign to demonize HydroxyChloroquine took another big hit on Thursday.

From a piece at the Federalist:

The Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal that published a 96,000-subject study indicting the efficacy of the politically controversial hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has retracted its findings that the malaria medication led to an increased risk of death.

“Today, three of the authors of the paper, ‘Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”, have retracted their study,” The Lancet said in a retraction statement Thursday. “They were unable to complete an independent audit of the data underpinning their analysis. As a result, they have concluded that they ‘can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources.”

“We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,” the authors of the study wrote.

The study was first published in May and was the largest ever conducted analyzing the impacts of hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump was reported to be taking the medication as a precautionary measure following possible exposure to the virus.

Legacy media meanwhile, with its animus for Trump, used the study to attack the president and his physician for taking a medication that had anecdotally shown potential promise in treatment of infection while posing few risks. Trump had previously touted the possible benefits of the medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use during press briefings to reporters who pinned the death of an uninfected man who drank fish tank cleaner outside of medical guidance on the president.

[End]

Let’s all remember that Dr. Fauci himself – who praised HCQ’s effectiveness as a treatment for viral infections in 2005, and said he would himself prescribe it in early March – used this specific study as a means of bashing HCQ:

The man is a menace. He is a menace to our entire society. He has used his position and the media idolatry towards him as a platform to lie to us repeatedly and with malice aforethought. We will never be able to return to normalcy as a society until we shun him and Dr. Birx and reassert our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Speaking of HCQ… – Fauci, Birx and their evil media minions took another big blow where HCQ is concerned yesterday. In Ohio, the Pharmacy Board withdrew a rule banning the use of HCQ, which was entirely motivated by political hatred towards President Trump. Why are the rescinding it? Because of complaints from actual, real doctors who want to prescribe it to their patients and are having great success with it as a treatment for COVID-19.

From a story at the Butler County Journal News in Ohio:

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy withdrew a rule preventing hydroxychloroquine from being sold in the state as treatment for coronavrius after Gov. Mike DeWine called for the board to halt the rule.

As a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Gov. DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has withdrawn proposed rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code,” read a statement from the board. “Therefore, prohibitions on the prescribing of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in Ohio for the treatment of COVID-19 will not take effect at this time.”

The board will reexamine the rule with the help of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts and stakeholders to determine the next step.

The rule, which was scheduled to go into effect today, would prohibit pharmacies from selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for coronavirus unless the use is approved by the board’s executive director. The rule would also void all previous approvals of the drug.

The governor said in a statement Thursday that he agreed with Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision to treat the virus with hydroxychloroquine should be between a doctor and patient.

[End]

Again, we must as a people ignore the edicts of Fauci and Birx, who are nothing more than tools of people who hate you and would rather you were dead. We can never return to normalcy until we shun them as the menaces to our society that they truly are.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Fauci’s Errant First Pitch, Trump Cancels Convention, and the Truth About the Portland Riots

Not to be mean, but…well, yeah, ok, to be mean because this little menace to society richly deserves it. – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Democrat operative who has worked so hard to destroy our nation over the last four months with his constantly-shifting, always-wrong narrative about the Wuhan Virus, threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game last night.

Very predictably, it all went very, very, very wrong. Watch:

So, 15 feet short and 27 feet outside – every bit as accurate as anything he has had to say about the viral plague from China. The man is consistent if nothing else.

Bob Uecker Just A Bit Outside GIFs | Tenor

But keep your social distance and wear those masks, folks! – Here’s the little menace later, setting an example for the rest of America:

Yeah, you’ll never see that photo on CNN or MSNBC.

Dr. Fauci does not just kowtow to hypocrite Democrats, he personifies them.

But never fear, the little menace was still on the job earlier in the day, doing everything he can to continue to destroy America’s economy and society, in an interview with MarketWatch.

Here’s the headline of the story:

Anthony Fauci tells MarketWatch: I would not get on a plane or eat inside a restaurant

Holy crap.

 

Speaking of #EnemiesOfThePeople, here is how the New York Times is lying to its readers about the Portland riots today:

And here is the truth about the riots and the rioters, brought to you each and every day by a real journalist, Andy Ngo:

You will never see any of that reported by the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the three broadcast network news.

Enemies of the people, one and all.

This is hysterically funny. – Watch Charlie Hurt’s face as the dimwitted Marie Harf tries to avoid the question from Harris Faulkner, and find some way to blame Republicans for what is happening in cities Democrats have run into the ground for decades:

Honestly, it’s hard to know how she manages to dress herself each day. Maybe she doesn’t.

 

The climate alarmists are going after the polar bears again. – The good news is that 20 years ago, the climate alarmists assured us that all the arctic polar bears would be gone in 15 years because of “global warming”. That not only did not happen, but the population of polar bears actually multiplied.

The bad news is that the climate alarmists – supported as always by a slavish, corrupt news media establishment – are back going for polar bear gold again. Only this time, instead of just giving themselves a mere 15 years to be wrong, they’re giving themselves an entire lifetime so that none of them will be around to be mocked when the polar bears are still doing just fine in the year 2100.

Take a gander at this:

Yeah, that’s not going to happen, either. Just your dishonest climate alarm community, supported by your corrupt, fake news media, at work.

The lies and corruption never end.

Speaking of lies and corruption, watch for a Wuhan Virus miracle in Florida. – At his press conference on Thursday, President Trump announced that the RNC is cancelling the in-person part of the Republican National Convention, which was to be held in Jacksonville, Florida.

Thus, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media have achieved their goal. Don’t be surprised if the number of new COVID-19 “cases” suddenly begins to fall in the weeks to come.

Just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were obligated to elect a Black president in 2008; and just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were somehow obligated to elect a woman president in 2016; you are being brainwashed today to utterly and completely ignore all of the real data and science about the Wuhan Virus for purely political reasons.

This is nothing new, but it does grow more intense and focused and transparently dishonest with time.

Celebrate: Navarro Op-Ed Signals White House Break With Fauci

Peter Navarro, the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy for President Donald Trump, grew weary of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s grandstanding and chronic flip-flopping in public long ago. Back in April, Axios reported on a confrontation Navarro had with the little menace to American society during a Coronavirus Task Force meeting at the White House:

Toward the end of the meeting, Hahn began a discussion of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which Trump believes could be a “game-changer” against the coronavirus.

  • Hahn gave an update about the drug and what he was seeing in different trials and real-world results.
  • Then Navarro got up. He brought over a stack of folders and dropped them on the table. People started passing them around.
  • “And the first words out of his mouth are that the studies that he’s seen, I believe they’re mostly overseas, show ‘clear therapeutic efficacy,’” said a source familiar with the conversation. “Those are the exact words out of his mouth.”

Navarro’s comments set off a heated exchange about how the Trump administration and the president ought to talk about the malaria drug, which Fauci and other public health officials stress is unproven to combat COVID-19.

  • Fauci pushed back against Navarro, saying that there was only anecdotal evidence that hydroxychloroquine works against the coronavirus.
  • Researchers have said studies out of France and China are inadequate because they did not include control groups.
  • Fauci and others have said much more data is needed to prove that hydroxychloroquine is effective against the coronavirus.
  • As part of his role, Navarro has been trying to source hydroxychloroquine from around the world. He’s also been trying to ensure that there are enough domestic production capabilities inside the U.S.

Fauci’s mention of anecdotal evidence “just set Peter off,” said one of the sources. Navarro pointed to the pile of folders on the desk, which included printouts of studies on hydroxychloroquine from around the world.

  • Navarro said to Fauci, “That’s science, not anecdote,” said another of the sources.

Navarro started raising his voice, and at one point accused Fauci of objecting to Trump’s travel restrictions, saying, “You were the one who early on objected to the travel restrictions with China,” saying that travel restrictions don’t work. (Navarro was one of the earliest to push the China travel ban.)

[End]

Yesterday, in response to Fauci’s continuing efforts to undermine national policy in his myriad media appearances, Navarro penned a sterling op-ed for USA Today. As is his habit, Navarro is devastatingly succinct and precise in laying out the many reasons why Fauci deserves to be ignored in the nation’s ongoing efforts to effectively deal with the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

From the op-ed:

Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.

In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.

When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry.

When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk.

When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks.

[End]

There’s more, and you should go read the piece in full. The simple fact of the matter – as we have pointed out repeatedly here – is that Fauci has yet to get any single aspect of this viral gift from China right. As Navarro points out, the little menace has been wrong about everything, often with catastrophic results to our society.

Even now, Fauci is out in the media declaring that it would be “dangerous” for the U.S. to reopen schools this fall when literally every other nation on earth is opening their own schools and getting their kids back to learning. As clearly exhibited by his multiple love letter to Hillary Clinton and all of the selfies he has had taken with Clinton, Pelosi and other leftist luminaries, Fauci is nothing more or less than a tool of the Democrat Party who has worked from Day 1 to undermine America’s response to the virus, in the process intentionally undermining America itself.

Fauci himself admitted last week that he has not been allowed to brief the President in more than 2 months, and the fact that Navarro was allowed to author that op-ed clearly signals that his relationship with the White House has been officially severed.

That, folks, is a very good thing for our country.

Tuesday News Roundup: Sessions’ Last Stand, Biden/Bottoms 2020, and Fauci is a Menace

Today is Beauregard’s last stand. – Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the former do-nothing Attorney General who allowed Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to run the Department of Justice for two solid years, makes his last stand today in Alabama. He trails opponent Tommy Tuberville by a wide margin in the polling leading into today’s GOP primary runoff election to determine which Republican gets to run Democrat Doug Jones out of the U.S. Senate.

In typical blunt fashion, President Donald Trump made his preference in this election known on Twitter yesterday.:

Just a reminder that everything that happened with the Soviet-style Mueller Special Counsel operation stemmed from Jeff Sessions’ own mendacity. This man is one of our country’s worst disasters, and fully deserves the electoral humiliation coming to him today at the hands of Alabama’s voters.

Speaking of our nation’s worst human disasters… – The leftist nitwits at the Dan Abrams operation “Mediaite” got a case of the vapors yesterday after a senior White House staffer shared a mean cartoon targeting Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man who has done more to destroy our nation’s economy and school system than any person alive.

From the piece at Mediaite:

White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino publicly blasted White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci Sunday on Facebook.

Scavino posted a cartoon by conservative illustrator Ben Garrison which showed Fauci as a faucet flushing the economy down a sink, with labels including “Indefinite lockdown!” and “Shut up and obey!”

“Sorry, Dr. Faucet! At least you know if I’m going to disagree with a colleague, such as yourself, it’s done publicly — and not cowardly, behind journalists with leaks,” Scavino commented. “See you tomorrow!”

[End]

Looks like a pretty accurate cartoon. Mediaite’s only upset because cartoonist Ben Garrison captured the reality of Fauci and all the damage he has done and continues to do to our society so succinctly. The man is a menace to our very survival.

In case you missed it, Fauci complained to one eager reporter the other day that he has not briefed the President in “at least two months.” This is what we know in the real world as great and reassuring news. Given that Fauci has yet to be right about anything at all related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like a peachy idea to keep him the hell away from the President so that policy decisions might be made on actually accurate information coming from others.

If Mr. Trump never speaks to this little menace again, America will be a much safer place.

She’s a leader with real leadership who is leading by exercising leadership with leading. She leads the entire nation by leading with leadership, and leads with more leadership than all those other non-leading leader losers hoping to become Joe Biden’s running mate. – Here is Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ argument for why she should become Joe Biden’s running mate:

News you will not see reported on CNN or the New York Times, part 99,353:

This is what Fredo Cuomo and Jake Tapper refer to as a “civil rights group,” folks. You could never make this stuff up.

A sports journalist piece everyone should read. – Sports journalist Jason Whitlock, who famously called out the NFL and Black Lives Matter last week, published a terrific op-ed at OutKick.com yesterday. It’s a piece every American should read.

Here’s an excerpt:

It’s the media’s addiction to Twitter. We now crowdsource our ethics, standards and guiding principles. The Twitter mob is America’s ombudsman.

Journalism is dead. It’s been sick for a long time. The widespread usage of the internet placed journalism on life support in the 1990s. Facebook and Twitter pulled the plug.

Big Tech killed the greatest human experiment, the United States of America. You can’t sustain freedom and fairness with mob crowdsourced ethics and standards.  By definition, a mob is disorderly, riotous and lawless. A mob is unconcerned with truth.

The theory driving the importance of a “a free press” is that journalists will deliver truthful information to the public and the public will make good decisions based on that information.

Feed the public social media-friendly, clickbait narrative lies disguised as racial-justice truth and you provoke the kind of unrest currently sweeping this nation. Media black lies matter. They agitate old wounds, sow discord and distrust, undermine patriotism and prevent us from addressing real problems.

The annual murder of thousands of black men is a legitimate problem. Social media has us fixated on the annual murder of a half dozen. Black lies matter, especially when they’re used to conceal a political agenda detached from the advancement of freedom.

Journalists should not be political partisans.

[End]

As I keep telling you, the death of journalism threatens to become the death of our country if we do not find some way to hold the corporate, clickbait-focused media giants accountable for their intentional spreading of rank falsehoods. My one disagreement with Whitlock here is that he puts the main focus of his blame on social media, where these thousands of corrupt journalists manifest their outrageous biases every day.

But social media is just a facilitator here, a convenient platform. The truth is that the death of real journalism in our country took hold in our nation’s universities during the 1960s and 1970s with the new focus on “advocacy journalism” replacing the former focus on hard work, proper sourcing and the telling of the objective truth.

The central problem here is that for the last half century students in journalism schools all over the country have been brainwashed to believe that there is actually no such thing as objective truth. Once you lose the concept of truth, then all journalists feel justified in becoming fiction writers and reporters as they intentionally slant the “news” to favor their own personal pet causes.

Fundamentally, this is how a blatantly Marxist, domestic terrorist organization like Black Lives Matter gets turned into a “civil rights group” in the eyes of the entirety of the American media establishment.

The brainwashing will continue until every one of us submits.

America Must Hold the Corrupt News Media Accountable in Order to Survive

We must find a way to hold the corrupt corporate news media accountable before they destroy our country. – That’s been a consistent theme here at Today’s Campaign Update for four years now (today is the 4th anniversary of the very first Campaign Update posted on my Facebook page during the heat of the 2016 campaign), and it has become more urgent than ever. Because, as I noted yesterday, the media literally has the deaths of an untold number of Americans on its hands due to its focused disinformation campaign related to Hydroxychloroquine.

Dr. David Samadi, a Fox News medical contributor, put it this way on Twitter yesterday:

This is exactly the thing. Let’s remember that the media’s campaign to demonize the use of HCQ in treating COVID-19 provided cover to despot Democrat governors like Steve Sisolak in Nevada and Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan to temporarily ban the use of the drug for that purpose in their states. There is no question that that campaign, which included the knowing dissemination of bogus “studies” – one of which shamefully came out of the CDC – also intimidated doctors all over the country who might have otherwise prescribed HCQ to their patients and potentially saved their lives.

But while we focus our ire on our depraved news media establishment, we need to also remember the key role played by another prominent individual in all of this, a man who most assuredly knew better. Dr. Samadi called that person out as well:

Why indeed? To be clear: Dr. Fauci and the CDC have known since at least 2005 about the efficacy of HCQ in treating COVID-like viral infections. Yet, from the moment President Trump touted its use related to this virus at an early White House task force press briefing, Fauci has been in the media panning it. In those same media appearances, Fauci has focused on the promotion of incredibly expensive, unproven experimental drugs being developed by an array of Big Pharma companies in their quest to make billions off of this national health crisis.

Why? Why would he do that? Isn’t the answer obvious?

Fauci is the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is closely tied into and receives support from those same pharmaceutical manufacturers. Those Pharma companies essentially serve as NIAID’s lobby before congress, which helps to explain why a government institute that has consistently failed in its mission sports a $5 billion budget.

Oh.

HCQ is cheap, it is widely available and it has been used for decades mainly as a malaria treatment all over the world. There is no money to be made from HCQ.

For the corrupt, corporate news media, the motive initially seems less clear. That is, until you get to the next commercial break and suffer through yet another 90-second ad for some new drug with a mysterious name that was made up by a million dollar consultant.

This drug won’t cure you – because, hey, there’s no money in curing you – but it will dampen your symptoms at a very high price if you take it every day for the rest of your life. And, as you watch the images of some chubby 60 year-old who has the same ailment as you do leading a marching band through the streets of some Hollywood sound set designed to look like a 1950s town in middle America, you will want crave drug even as you sit through the 75 seconds of carefully-written legal disclaimers describing all of the horrible things that drug just might do to you instead of alleviating your symptoms.

The air time for that ad costs a bunch of money on NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC or even low-rated CNN. It is the life’s blood that keeps those fake news operations on the air.

Oh.

Let’s also be clear that the demonization of HCQ was not – as those corrupt media organizations contend – just a matter of them reporting the news. There is no question that it was a highly-coordinated effort –  complete with focus-grouped talking points that every reporter parroted word-for-word – that was motivated by the belief that demonizing that cheap, plentiful, well-understood drug would harm the President and his re-election chances.

This isn’t journalism- it’s a political campaign. Can any thinking person really doubt that if Barack Obama had endorsed HCQ, the media’s and Fauci’s reactions would have been entirely different? Like, 180 degrees different? Of course, they would have been.

Had Obama endorsed the drug, Governors Whitmer and Sisolak would have been demanding their legislatures allocate hundreds of millions of dollars to give the stuff away for free. They’d have ordered that every 7-11 in their state stock the stuff on their candy shelves and forced Girl Scouts to hand it out along with their cookies.

You all know this is true, don’t you? Of course you do.

The simple fact is that Americans are dead today because the news media and Democrat governors, supported by Anthony Fauci, treated HCQ not as the potentially life-saving medication that it is, but as a political football.

It’s easy to see how Fauci can and eventually will be held accountable for his serial mendacity about every element of this pandemic. If we are to ultimately survive as a society in its current form, America must find an effective way to hold these corrupt media organizations accountable as well.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Fauci is a Menace, an Environmentalist’s Apology, BLM/Antifa Shooting in Provo

Just one more reason to lock Dr. Anthony Fauci in a broom closet and lose the key. – Back in January, Dr. Fauci – who has never found a cure for any virus and is yet to get a single thing right about this one – assured us that COVID-19 presented no immediate threat to the United States.

Yesterday, during testimony before a Senate committee, Fauci said this about a new viral gift from China:

Why is this menace to our society still employed by the federal government, and still making media appearances on behalf of the Trump Administration? His ongoing presence in the national debate is even more malevolent and destructive than that of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.

That’s why the lone bright spot in yesterday’s hearing came from Dr. Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky, who sliced, diced and ground Fauci’s unbridled hubris into a million pieces. From a report at Political Insider:

“Fatal conceit is the concept that central planning with decision making concentrated in a few hands can never fully grasp the millions of complex, individual interactions occurring simultaneously in the marketplace. It is a fatal conceit to believe any one person or small group of people has the knowledge necessary to direct an economy or dictate public health behaviour,” Senator Paul explained.

“I think government health experts during this pandemic need to show caution in their prognostications. It’s important to realize that if society meekly submits to an expert, and that expert is wrong, a great deal of harm may occur. When we allow one man’s policy or one group of small men or women to be foisted on an entire nation,” he continued.

Senator Paul gave the example of experts demanding school closures, in order to control the spread of the coronavirus. This is despite solid examples from all over the world, that show no surge in cases when schools open. Contact tracing studies in China, the U.K., Netherlands, and Iceland also failed to find a single case of child to adult infection.

“Perhaps our planners might think twice before they weigh in on every subject. Perhaps our government advisors might hold their tongue,” Paul argued.

“Why weigh in with these opinions that we have no knowledge of? They are forecasts that may well be wrong. Perhaps our experts might consider the undue fear they are instilling in teachers who are now afraid to go back to work. We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone,” he added.

[End]

Dr. Paul did not call Fauci out by name, but it is obvious who he was referring to in his remarks. Whether Fauci, stewed as he is in a toxic mixture of arrogance and media adulation, took any of it to heart is doubtful.

This little man is a national menace.

Environmentalist Dr. Michael Shellenberger stands as a stark contrast to Dr. Fauci. Shellenberger is the rarest of rare individuals in the world of climate change environmentalism – an expert who understands the limits of his own ability to predict the future using the same kind of faulty computer models that once told us we would lose 2 million Americans to COVID-19, and who understands the incredible damage to global society that has been committed by those in his profession.

Yesterday, Shellenberger published a piece at Quillette.com titled, “On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare.” The title is self-descriptive of the content.

Here’s an excerpt:

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as expert reviewer of its next assessment report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

  • The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

  • Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

  • Fires have declined 25 percent around the world since 2003

  • The amount of land we use for meat—humankind’s biggest use of land—has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska

  • The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s

  • The Netherlands became rich, not poor while adapting to life below sea level

  • We produce 25 percent more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter

  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change

  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.

I keep telling everyone that BLM and Antifa are just different names for the same terrorist groups. – Yesterday in Provo, Utah, Black Lives Matter engaged in a dangerous escalation of its tactics, as one of the group’s activists actually shot a man who was attempting to escape from a mob of BLM thugs who had surrounded his car:

Despicably, the corrupt news media attempted to portray the driver as the bad guy, until enterprising people on Twitter slowed down and enhanced the video to clearly show that it was a BLM activist who did the shooting. The utter depravity of our news media today simply knows no depths.

This morning, Provo police announce they have arrested a suspect:

The police go on to say:

Police also arrested Samantha Darling, 27-year-old resident of Ogden City, and booked her into custody at the Utah County Jail for a charge of Obstruction of Justice and Rioting. The Provo Police Department extends its thanks to citizens…

who gave evidence and testimony to investigators and to allied agencies and officers who assisted this investigation, notably Ogden and Salt Lake City Police Departments. The investigation of criminal acts incident to protest events in Provo last night is ongoing.

[End]

Rumors flew yesterday of a second gunman on the opposite side of the street also drawing a pistol and aiming it at the vehicle, but no proof has come to light thus far.

Regardless, this incident demonstrates a very dangerous escalation of the Antifa/BLM insurgency in our country. It’s obvious that President Trump would prefer to avoid calling in the National Guard to put these riots down, but the escalating violence and animalistic behavior increasingly exhibited by these Marxist radicals, combined with the refusal by local officials to take effective action, could ultimately leave him no choice.

They’re shooting people now, Mr. President. The National Guard and your powers to declare national emergencies exist for a reason. Time is growing short to make use of them.

That is all.
