Alex Berenson Flays Team Apocalypse in 12 Easy Tweets

Journalist/author Alex Berenson continues to do yeoman’s work in exposing the hypocrisy and true motivations behind the purveyors of Panic Porn related to COVID-19. Today, he discovered a 2006 report co-authored by two of the most notorious panic-mongers, Thomas Inglesby and Jennifer Nuzzo, and took them to task in a brilliant thread on Twitter.

Take a look:

2/ The final paragraph begins: “Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted.” What’s changed,

@T_Inglesby? What’s different now?

3/ On quarantines: “As experience shows, there is no basis for recommending quarantine either of groups or individuals. The problems in implementing such measures are formidable, and secondary effects of absenteeism and community disruption [are severe]…” What’s different now?

4/ On schools: “Closing schools for [more than two weeks] in hopes of mitigating the epidemic by decreasing contacts among students is not warranted unless all other likely points of assembly are closed (e.g., malls, fast-food restaurants, churches, recreation centers, etc.)…”

4a/ “Such widespread closures, sustained throughout the pandemic, would almost certainly have serious adverse social and economic effects.” What’s different now? What’s changed? (Aside from the fact that #SARSCoV2 is less dangerous/transmissible to children than the flu.)

5/ On masks: “But studies have shown the ordinary surgical mask does little to prevent inhalation of small droplets bearing influenza virus. The pores in the mask become blocked by moisture from breathing, and the air stream simply diverts around the mask.” What’s different now?

6/ On social distancing: “It has been recommended that individuals maintain a distance of 3 feet or more [Ed: NOT 6] during a pandemic so as to diminish the number of contacts with people who may be infected. The efficacy of this measure is unknown…”

6a/ “It is difficult to imagine how bus, rail, or air travelers could stay 3 feet apart from each other throughout an epidemic. And such a recommendation would greatly complicate normal daily tasks like grocery shopping, banking, and the like.” What’s different now?

7/ On “Prohibition of Social Gatherings”: “During [flu] epidemics, public events with an expected large attendance have sometimes been cancelled… There are, however, no certain indications these actions have had any definitive effect on the severity or duration of an epidemic.”

7a/ ” Were consideration to be given to doing this on a more extensive scale and for an extended period, questions immediately arise as to how many such events would be affected… Implementing such measures would have seriously disruptive consequences for a community…”

7b/ “But a policy calling for communitywide cancellation of public events seems inadvisable.” What has changed, @T_Inglesby @JenniferNuzzo? Aside from the fact that #SARSCoV2 is so much LESS dangerous than the influenza strains that led you to make these recommendations?

8/ I mean, I know one thing has changed in 14 years. But it’s not the science. Please, help me out here. This is a serious question. Why shouldn’t we pay attention to you and what you said THEN?

[End]

Obviously, of course, the one thing that’s changed since then is that Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and these politically-motivated fear-mongers are prostituting themselves because they think the irrational fear they are helping to spread will hurt Trump’s chances for re-election. Trump Derangement Syndrome in action.

There is no mystery here at all. Kudos to Mr. Berenson for laying these despicable hacks bare.

That is all.

The Media Campaign to Save Joe Biden from Debates Has Begun

If you think Joe Biden will ever debate Donald Trump, think again. – As it becomes increasingly apparent to a growing majority of Americans that the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, is in the middle stages of advancing dementia, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media must concoct some rationale for ensuring that no presidential debates take place this fall.

Enter reliable old hack, columnist Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post, to kick off what will no doubt become a focused campaign to cancel these debates in the weeks to come. Noting that the Democrats have already ensured they can keep their Hidin’ Biden strategy intact through August by canceling their physical convention, Tumulty naturally praises that decision as “wise.” In the jargon of hack WaPo columnists, that means “consistent with the current narrative.”

She then moves to her rationale for killing these debates that she and her leftwing colleagues in the fake news media have treated like sacred, near-religious experiences that must be preserved at all costs in every past campaign.

Here’s an excerpt of Tumulty’s hack reasoning:

Trump is claiming he would like to have four faceoffs with Biden, rather than the three (plus one vice presidential debate), that are currently scheduled to take place between Sept. 29 and Oct. 22.

This is not a serious proposal. Even under the best of circumstances, scheduling these much-watched events on the busy fall calendar is a difficult challenge for the Commission on Presidential Debates, which has been in charge of the process since the 1988 election.

It has to find dates that are not on Friday or Saturday nights, do not conflict with sports and other events networks are committed to, or official presidential business, such as attending the U.N. General Assembly in September. Each debate generally requires the candidates to suspend public appearances for at least a few days to prepare.

[End]

What? Why is anything in that last paragraph in any way true? Is there a law that says presidential debates can’t be held on a Friday or Saturday night? No. That’s just for TV ratings purposes which, if the Democrats and media hacks like Tumulty succeed in shutting down the economy again with their Wuhan Virus Panic Porn, won’t be valid in any event since all the bars will still be closed and everyone will be sitting at home in front of their TV getting fatter.

And what are these “sports and other events” of which she speaks? With every passing day and every false report about COVID-19 Related “cases,” the chances of any of those things actually materializing this fall grows increasingly remote.

But the most utterly laughable aspect of that paragraph is Tumulty’s fretting about the candidates having to suspend “public appearances,” as if Joe Biden actually has plans to make public appearances. His entire campaign is focused on finding ways to prevent him from making such appearances, even if that means destroying the U.S. economy and way of life to do it.

Understand that at this point, the panic porn about COVID-19 and the Biden campaign are inextricably attached at the hip. Biden can only win this election if the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies – which now basically includes all of Fox News’s non-prime time operation – can keep the public in a panic and cowering in their homes through November.

A return to lockdowns is key to everything: It keeps Trump from holding the massive rallies that were the key to his winning in 2016; it justifies Biden’s continued strategy of hiding in his basement and being physically seen by as few Americans as possible; it helps to build a rationale for a national vote-by-mail scheme which in turn would maximize voter fraud efforts by the Democrats; and it serves as media justification for canceling face-to-face, unscripted debates between the candidates.

COVID-19 Panic Porn is in fact the Democrat Party’s entire political platform for 2020. Because they simply don’t have anything else to run on.

With 80% of the Republican congressional caucus consisting of timid, spineless cowards, they might just get away with it.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Panic Porn is Losing Traction Fast

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The stock markets had a bleak opening Monday morning following a weekend during which the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies loaded the airwaves with Wuhan Virus panic porn. The Dow opened down by more than 600 points, with the NASDAQ and S&P 500 also down from Friday’s highs. For awhile it seemed as if the panic porn parade at CNN and MSNBC would be able to cancel out all of the positive inertia that had underpinned the markets for the previous month.

But then a funny thing happened: About an hour into the session the markets slowly began to recover. Later in the day, after the Federal Reserve Board announced it would begin making purchases of corporate bonds, it recovered fully, with the Dow finishing the day in the green by 157 points. Today promises to be even better, as futures point to a positive opening which could see the NASDAQ achieve another new all-time record high.

The Democrats and their media toadies are going to need a new false narrative. The panic porn is failing.

Speaking of failed panic porn… – Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is looking for a bigger venue. That’s because more than 1 million Americans have now requested tickets to attend this Saturday’s Trump Campaign kickoff rally in Tulsa.

With Trump fans already camping out at the 19,000 seat BOK arena in downtown Tulsa, Stitt can see that that facility is inadequate to satisfy demand for the event. “We’re excited we’re being recognized as one of the first states to safely and measurably reopen,” Stitt told reporters Monday. “I’m looking for a potential other venue that maybe we could move it outside. It’s still kind of in the works.”

The corrupt news media, doing the bidding of its Democrat Party masters, continued to ramp up the pressure on the Trump Campaign to cancel the event based on the false narrative of a “second wave” of the viral gift from China supposedly taking place. Even Fox News’s Martha MacCallum got in on the action last night during an interview with Lara Trump, but Ms. Trump was having none of it.

“Everybody has a choice. Nobody is being forced to sign up to come to this rally,” Lara Trump told host Martha MacCallum. “This is a record-setting response that we have gotten to this and I think it speaks to the fact people are ready to get back to life.

“You contrast, Martha, the way the media and the experts have talked about this Trump rally — this one Trump rally where it’s around 20,000 people that can be in attendance in this arena — with the way that they discussed the protests where we had thousands of people all across this country,” she added.

[End]

Interestingly, one of the arguments the Axis of Disinformation has made against the rally is that it would put so many people together in an indoor arena. Moving the event to a larger, outdoor facility – to, say, the 30,000 seat H.A. Chapman Stadium, where Tulsa University football games are played – removes that argument from the playing field, so to speak.

The Panic Porn campaign is failing. There are a lot of different ways to skin this cat. This event is going to happen.

It’s failing in New York City, too. – Yesterday evening we told you about the despicable action by New York City’s antisemitic Mayor, Bill de Blasio, of having his police department put padlocks and welds on the gates of the main park in the middle of Brooklyn’s largest Jewish neighborhood. It’s the latest move in an increasingly aggressive and highly disturbing campaign the Mayor has mounted targeting the city’s Jewish community, justified, of course, by all the disinformation spread about the Wuhan Virus.

That happened yesterday morning. Yesterday evening, leaders of that Jewish community took matters into their own hands:

This is America, folks, these are Americans, and that is one of the most American things you will ever witness. There is no science, no data and most importantly, no real law supporting the notion that their children – who are almost impregnable to this virus – should not be able to play at the local park. Just the fascist edicts of an utterly corrupt nitwit drunk on power in the Mayor’s office.

These Americans are not buying into all the panic porn being spoon-fed to them every night on their television screens, and neither should you.

It’s time for America to become a free country again.

That is all.
