Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
This is very revealing. – Check out this little video clip from Chicago. Corrupt Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has just finished up holding her latest briefing, during which she and all of the reporters in the room dutifully wore their masks while they knew the TV cameras were rolling. As the presser ends, everyone immediately takes off their masks, as several reporters approach Lightfoot to ask a few more questions.
As soon as the press briefing is over all the media and politicians takeoff their masks…
What looks to be happening is they are only wearing masks for the television…

They just didn’t know the camera was still running. Watch how closely they crowd around the Mayor with their masks off. Does that look like social distancing to you?
What does this tell you? It tells you that neither the mayor nor the reporters believe any of the ongoing fear porn they are all spreading to the public in unison.
You can be sure that exactly the same thing takes place in the White House press room as soon as the briefings are done. Early this week, Fox Reporter John Roberts was outed by Jonathan Karl of ABC, who circulated a photo on Twitter of Roberts seated at an outdoor assembly sans mask a few minutes before the briefing was to begin. Roberts put his mask on as soon as the briefing began, but why? What possible purpose did doing that serve? What possible purpose did Karl’s pedantic tweet serve, other than the spreading of a little more fear porn?
At a presidential briefing on Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci showed up – despite his dramatic “self-quarantine” announcement early in the week – and stood behind the President the entire time wearing a mask that covered not just his face, but all the way down to the base of his neck. He looked like a member of the freaking James Gang.
Fauci had said he would still be coming into the White House when necessary, but why did he feel it was necessary to stand behind the President without saying a word for an hour at that presser? Was that really – as all the despot politicians like to say – “essential?” Or was it just so he could be there in every shot, subtly spreading his fear porn?
Because that’s all it is. Fauci himself has on numerous occasions advised the President and told the media that wearing these masks serves no functional purpose in terms of preventing the spread of the Wuhan Virus. So has Dr. Deborah Birx. Remember that? It was back in March, into early April.
But as he has done on so many things over the course of the past four months, Fauci suddenly switched course in April, as his fear-mongering efforts to keep extending our national economic shut-down stretched out from two weeks to six weeks to indefinite and now until there is a vaccine or a “cure,” either or both of which may never come. Around the first week of April, he and Birx suddenly began including the wearing of masks by anyone who goes out into public as one of the mitigations we need to all take as a condition of slowly reopening the economy.
Why? It’s obviously false advice and all the politicians everyone in the press corps parroting Fauci’s pronouncements knows it, which is why we saw that scene from Chicago yesterday. They all know it, and as soon as they think the cameras have stopped rolling – or, in Roberts’ case, before he thinks they’ve begun – presto! No more masks.
We’re all being lied to, folks. We’re being lied to over and over again about pretty much every aspect of this Chinese plague.
To its credit, the state health department of Colorado yesterday actually made an effort to begin correcting one of its great lies to the public, lowering its official COVID-related death count from 1150 to 878 as auditors identified 272 cases that were falsely reported.
That announcement ironically came just a few hours after the state’s Democrat Governor, Jared Polis, had somberly announced that the state had passed the milestone of 1,000 deaths. Guess he’ll have to do that announcement all over again in the weeks to come. Or maybe not, since the review of the death count by the state’s health board is ongoing.
This is just one more aspect of all of this that health officials, politicians and the corrupt news media are lying about, and everyone involved knows it. It was an act of compassion, but the decision by the federal government, working with the big insurance companies, to ensure that COVID-19 treatments are free of charge led to a frenzy by doctors and health officials all over the country to attribute almost any death by natural causes to the virus, even when patients had not been tested for it. That 25% reduction in Colorado is just the tip of a huge iceberg, and again, everyone involved knows it.
Yet the media and Democrat politicians continue to use that hyper-inflated death toll as fear porn to support their efforts to keep the economy shut down through election day. With the media, it’s not just what they do say on this subject, but what they don’t report about it.
If you do a Google search on that Colorado story, you won’t find reports on it from any of the major TV networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times or the Washington Post. But you will find a 3-week old story from the NY Times whose headline reads “U.S. Coronavirus Death Toll is Far Higher Than Reported.” I swear I do not make this stuff up.
We’re being lied to, folks, just as we have been lied to for four solid years about “Russia Collusion.” It’s all the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies know how to do anymore.
That is all.
