Alex Berenson Explodes the “Wear Your Mask!!!!” Myth in 6 Easy Tweets

Just thought this was very compelling and everyone should see it, given our ongoing national insanity over the wearing of useless masks to give us a false sense of security over the China virus. Read it and marvel at the level of rank mendacity being perpetrated on our society based on the advice of Dr. Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci, both of whom publicly stated that these masks provided pretty much no real protection back in March and early April:

The Corona Panic Porn Just Never Ends

California Governor Gavin Newsom, a despicable Democrat, tanked a major stock rally today by announcing he was re-closing his state. Newsom attributes his latest irrational, probably illegal action to his state’s rising number of “cases” of COVID-19, a number everyone knows is vastly inflated and fraudulent.

As Newsom takes this action motivated solely by politics, the folks at the Daily Caller thought it was important to remind readers what was taking place in Los Angeles a month ago, because Newsom says this is still ok.:

Oh. Any questions?

Meanwhile, in other COVID-19 news… – Alex Berenson has an important CORONAPANIC UPDATE from Florida:

Oh.

Remember the goal in Florida is to inflate the numbers so high that they justify cancelling the GOP National Convention. So, expect them to go much, much higher in the next 2-3 weeks.

And a fair warning from @EthicalSkeptic about the flood of “new” deaths to come, as states that have withheld that data will now start claiming it is all “covid-related” to keep the panic going:

Despicable.

But none of this fits the narrative, so, carry on.

That is all.

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.

Tuesday News Roundup: Nike Takes a Dive, Fauci’s Putting on a Show, and the Truth About Texas

Being “woke” = going broke. – At least that appears to be the case for Collin Kaepernick-supporting Nike. In case you missed it, the woke shoe maker that seems to have contracts to supply the shoes and uniforms for most major sports teams across the globe somehow managed to report a princely $790 million loss for the 4th quarter of 2019.

The company blames part of the loss on store closures related to COVID-19, but that can’t be true, given that none of those closures took place until late in the first quarter of 2020. Nike also announced that it will be executing a big layoff as the result of its losses, which come on the heels of the massive, Kaepernick-focused advertising campaign it ran during the second half of 2019.

Here is a corporate BS-filled statement issued by Nike:

“Consumer Direct Acceleration is the next digitally empowered phase of our strategy,” Nike said in a statement. “We are building a flatter, nimbler company and transforming Nike faster to define the marketplace of the future. We are shifting resources and creating capacity to reinvest in our highest potential areas, and we anticipate our realignment will likely result in a net loss of jobs.”

[End]

Blah-blah-blah, yada-yada-yada, losses and layoffs. Bad management reaps bad results. Tough.

CNN’s Ryan Lizza is the Jim Acosta of Yameche Alcindors:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. That question is something you might expect a snot-nosed 12 year-old junior high dumbass to ask. This is why the White House should never hold another press briefing and should revoke all press passes. These corrupt reporters are a pestilence on our country.

Ever wonder what Dr. Fauci does with that mask once he thinks the cameras have been turned off? – Now we know:

This man is a national menace who has lied to us every step of the way. For him, it’s all just a show.

Can’t get any real information about what’s happening in Texas related to COVID-19? – You are in that boat if you rely on TV or the newspapers for your “news.” They only report the top-line number, which is the number of new “cases,” a number we all know is hyper-inflated by hospitals so they can maximize revenue from the federal government.

If you want real, actual detailed information, you are left to go to Twitter, of all places. Specifically, you must go to Alex Berenson’s Twitter feed. Yesterday, he received an email from a senior executive at one of the state’s major ER chains of hospitals:

Here are the attachments (this is long but worth the read):

Bottom line is this:

– More people being tested means more “cases”;

– Virus is now showing up in a much younger group of patients than before, mainly because employers are telling anyone who sneezes or has the sniffles at work to go get tested;

– The vast majority of the new “cases” show very mild or no symptoms at all;

– Those admitted to the hospital see stays that are much shorter than seen during March thru May;

– Texas hospitals are not in danger in any way of being overwhelmed by this new outbreak.

Governor Abbott, unfortunately, is just another politician who has now overreacted by succumbing to the media’s panic porn about this surge in new cases, once again denying tens of thousands of Texans the right to make a living and shutting down thousands of businesses.

By its systematic refusal to report the full truth about what is really happening in Texas and other states where the number of cases is surging, our corrupt news media is, intentionally or not, destroying our country’s way of life and causing catastrophic damage to our economy. They are the very worst and most destructive class of people in our society today.

That is all.

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.

Friday News Roundup: Musk Shames Bezos, Whitmer Shames Herself and de Blasio is Just a Giant Shame

Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months.

Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”:

Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else. Basically, Berenson was being blocked because his book does not conform to the propaganda being pushed by China and the WHO.

Berenson complained about it on Twitter, where Musk has obviously been following him. Musk responded by tweeting, “This is insane, @JeffBezos,” and “Time to break up @Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”

Within a few hours, Amazon suddenly restored Berenson’s book to its platform, and a spokesman lamely explained that it had been block due to an “error.” Yeah, sure.

Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer again violates her own edicts. – Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator and barber-hater who currently serves as Governor in Michigan, has apparently decided that all of her stay-at-home and social distancing nonsense is completely optional.

On Thursday, she made that clear by doing this:

So, if you’re a protester or a looter or a rioter in Michigan, hey, no worries about all that social distancing and staying-at-home stuff! Frau Gretchen was just kidding.

He’s gone full AOC. Not a good look, Joe. – Joe Biden told a group of climate alarmists yesterday that he’s going all-in on the Green New Deal as a means of not just saving the earth, but also to solve all the problems of racial injustice.

No, I’m not kidding. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

In a virtual fundraiser on Thursday afternoon hosted by Climate Leaders for Biden, the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate said addressing climate change is urgent “not just to stop the earth from warming, but to address the environmental injustices that have left so many low-income people and people of color more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to asthma and other respiratory problems, the effects of pollution,” according to a pool report.

Biden also touched on mass unemployment due to coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, saying that “creating millions, over 10 million good-paying jobs” while investing in clean energy is “an enormous opportunity to rebuild the backbone of this country.”

Addressing “a stimulus to create clean energy jobs that will spur the economic recovery,” Biden said that, “I think that we’re on our way, and we can be on our way to a significant economic recovery, not just to build back but to build back better. Building back what we had before this crisis is not enough.”

“Invest in jobs and the technology of the future,” Biden said. “The clean energy infrastructure is at the very top of the list.”

[End]

This is all Church of Climate Change dogma straight out of the Green New Deal, a collection of mindless shibboleths that have no basis in reality. But hey, Biden himself is out of touch with reality most days, so what else would we expect from him?

He’s under-shooting here. – Biden created a media kerfuffle for himself on Thursday at another event at which he was speaking to minority supporters. From a New York Times Report:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.”

Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not.

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Mr. Biden said during the discussion, which was moderated by the actor Don Cheadle.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” the former vice president said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

[End]

Naturally, Biden’s critics jumped on the “10 to 15 percent” remark as if it is some sort of “basket of deplorables” moment, but that’s not going to fly. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who doesn’t believe that at least 15% of the population of this or any other country are “just not very good people.” If anything, Biden is underestimating here.

If you’re looking for ways to take Biden’s campaign out, look elsewhere because this cat don’t flush.

Hey, 2/3rds of them voted for the guy. – I found this incident to be highly ironic:

From the Breitbart piece:

The crowd booed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) during his appearance at Thursdays’s vigil for George Floyd, with some hurling expletives, demanding the Democrat politician to “get the f*ck out of here!”

While Rev. Kevin McCall urged the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, the mayor did not receive an overwhelmingly warm welcome, as the audience inundated his appearance with boos and shouts of “get the fuck out of here,” “f*ck the mayor’s curfew,” and “shut the f*ck up.” Some reportedly turned their backs to the mayor:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s speech at the memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn was met with boos and jeers, despite requests from organizers for the crowd not to do so.

Embedded video

Let’s be honest here: New Yorkers get what they deserve in a mayor. In the 2013 election, they elected this giant Marxist boob over his Republican opponent by a margin of 73% to 24%. When he ran for re-election in 2017, after four years of abject failure and rampant nit-wittery, these same New York City voters gave him another four-year term by a margin of 67% to 28%.

According to NYC law, de Blasio is now term-limited out, but the reality is that if he could run for a third term, the very same people who tried to boo him off the stage on Thursday would overwhelmingly re-elect him again for the simple fact that he would have a “D” next to his name.

There is a word for the process of doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result. That word is “insanity,” and it perfectly describes the voter of New York City and other major cities that have been controlled by Democrat machine politics for many decades.

That is all.

How the New York Times Fakes News About Ventilators

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Alex Berenson, himself a former reporter at the New York Times, has a great Twitter thread this morning detailing how his former employer is intentionally mis-informing its readers regarding the real number of ventilators that the nations hospitals will need to deal with the China Virus outbreak.

The content of Berenson’s Twitter thread is detailed below. It should be required reading in every home in America.

Thus, rather than the “million” ventilators that the NYTimes falsely claims will be needed based on faulty data, the maximum number is vastly lower than that. And the real problem, which the Times basically ignores, is that our country likely only has trained staff necessary to safely operate a maximum of about 56,000 such machines.

This is the kind of intentional news-fakery aimed solely at causing harm to President Donald Trump that corrupt media outlets have used to cause needless panic across the United States. It is the kind of irresponsble media behavior for which, when all of the dust has settled from this national crisis, our country simply must find some way to hold corrupt reporters, editors and media executives accountable.

Because if we cannot find some way to adequately police what has become possibly the single most corrupt and irresponsible corporate business segment in our society today, they will only behave even more irresponsibly in the future.

That is all.
