So this is an oldie but a goodie and again reinforces my attempt to get people to understand we’re being lied to about the ‘vid every day all the time by the so called “experts” and talking heads. While the following quote is from Joe Biden when on the campaign trail back on 9/17/20, the lesson we can glean from this quote and the "fact check" that was written about it applies today as much as it should have then (caps mine for emphasis):
"If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, ALL THE PEOPLE would still be alive. ALL THE PEOPLE. I'm NOT MAKING THIS UP. Just LOOK AT THE DATA."
There obviously isn’t one honest or truthful word in that entire quote and although the “fact-checkers” do claim it to be “false” it’s only because they say we couldn’t have saved “every” life but their position is if we had just done more sooner, things wouldn’t have been as bad as they are.
From the "fact check" article, the great and powerful Fauci said: "Obviously, you could LOGICALLY SAY that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier, you COULD HAVE saved lives...Obviously, no one is going to deny that." As always, notice the qualifier terms. He doesn’t actually say definitively you “could have” saved lives. He says “you could “LOGICALLY SAY” you could have saved lives. That’s not the same thing. This guy ALWAYS qualifies his statements so later he can say he didn’t actually say that. He does it all the time. That’s because he’s a dishonest person.
And I’m actually going to “deny that”. What exactly would that ongoing “process” be? And what exactly would be the “mitigation” that could’ve started earlier?
This particular fact check piece from POLITIFACT reports: “The right actions in January, February and March would LIKELY have prevented "A SUBSTANTIAL NUMBER" of deaths…Those actions MIGHT have included national coordinated strategy across state lines, rapidly scaled up testing, the ramped up production and mobilization of resources, and more clear communications of what was known about the virus and how to prevent it, experts said.”
I'm not sure who those "experts" are but, please notice the qualifier terms “likely” and “a substantial number” and “might”. Also, what would those “right actions” have been in January, February, and March? Going back to Joe Biden’s lying attack, remember when the President shut down travel from China on January 31st just 10 DAYS AFTER the first US confirmed COVID case and he was derided as a xenophobe (by Joe Biden among others)? So what exactly would those “right actions” and “national coordinated strategies” be?
Obviously more masking would have done the trick. Everybody “knows” that. Except Anthony Fauci was telling everyone in February and March “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.” Whether you believe he was lying then or lying since about masks (the correct answer is “lying since”), the FACT is he (and others) were telling us we didn’t need masks. Plus we know from the actual SCIENCE AND DATA that masks are all but useless in mitigating the spread of coronavirus (or any other respiratory viral infection for that matter) anyway. So again going back to Biden’s lying attack, how was it the President’s fault that Saint Fauci was telling people, even laughing at them for asking the question, that masks were unnecessary?
More lockdowns? Those things have been shown by actual SCIENCE AND DATA to be all but useless in preventing deaths but significantly harmful to the economic health of the country (look at the stats of lockdown states vs. more open states) as well as the social, psychological, physical, and educational welfare of American citizens.
More testing? Why? So we could lock people up and quarantine everybody they ever knew? Even the World Health Organization says contact tracing and quarantining “exposed” individuals is a waste of time. And as the CDC estimates more than 120,000,000 Americans have been infected, if we had been testing everyone all the time, we’d have a country where millions of people would be locked in their homes (or camps – remember when that was suggested?) for no reason, as more than 95% of those infected were asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and again, quarantining the “exposed” is ridiculous. Although the type of testing which may have actually helped inform us of what was actually going on would be antibody testing. This would tell us how many people were already infected and therefore protected. I wonder why we didn’t do that. Oh well, moving on…
How about the “ramped up production and mobilization of resources”. More masks that are useless? More ventilators that were never needed? What exactly would those things be? More signs telling us to wear masks that do nothing? More signs telling you to stay six feet away from the guy in line at the supermarket (or is it three feet, or is it all just complete nonsense with no science behind it at all)? Just so you know, there was no signal amongst supermarket workers, even from January, February, and March, when they were dealing with the unwashed, unmasked masses all day long, that they had a higher infection rate than the general public. So I’m not sure which “resources” would’ve changed anything back in January, February, and March.
What about “more clear communications of what was known about the virus and how to prevent it”? What would that be, exactly? That we should wear gloves 24/7, wash our groceries, sanitize our mail and not let anyone pet the dog? Remember when those were things (c’mon man, you know you did them)? Turned out to be complete and utter non-scientific nonsense. Remember back in April of 2020 (April comes after January, February, and March) when we were being told by no less than the World Health Organization that the coronavirus wasn’t airborne? How’d that work out? What we “know” now is this coronavirus is a contagious respiratory virus which will negatively impact a tiny, almost exclusively specific, portion of the population. What do we know on how to prevent it? Nothing. First we were told to hide in our homes, until Governor Cuomo was “shocked” to find out that some 66% of hospital admissions were from people “following the rules” and hiding under their beds. We were told not to go outside, but then it turned out outside spread isn’t a thing. Then we were told to wear a mask, then two masks. Except ALL the legitimate data on planet earth says masks do essentially nothing “more than zero”. Then we were told vaccination was our salvation. But even with more than 50% of the country vaccinated we have more deaths in eight months of this year than 11 months of last year. So what exactly do we know?
Well we know this is a problem almost exclusively for the aged. Almost 80% of all COVID deaths in the US are in people over age 65. We know this is a problem almost exclusively of the overweight/obese with almost 80% of those hospitalized with COVID being so. But how much have you heard from the “experts” or talking heads about eating better, exercising, sleeping better, getting out in the sun, and other things you can do for yourself to improve your risk profile (cue the crickets)? I was telling you last May (of 2020) of the importance of Vitamin D and getting out in the sun. Did Fauci or any of the rest of the Fat Albert Gang ever talk of that (more crickets)? No, they made you a criminal for walking in the park or lying on the beach; in some places just for tending to your own front yard.
Hey remember back in the beginning of this piece when Joe Biden said “I'm NOT MAKING THIS UP. Just LOOK AT THE DATA." How’d that work out? Turns out he DID make it up, and there was NO data to support his assertion. This is the same guy who told you we’d see another “250,000 dead Americans” in December last year alone, and he told us that was a “fact” too (there were about 70,000 deaths). Hey, remember that time when Joe Biden told us he was going to “shut down the virus”? That was awesome! (shout out Chris Farley) And now he and his acolytes in the mainstream media have been telling us for months that the only way out of this pandemic is through vaccinations, and compulsory ones at that. First two shots, now three. Cause now Joe “knows” those are “facts” too.
My purpose is not a political attack on a failing old man with a 50 year history of lying, plagiarism and outright stupidity. Hey, don’t give me the fisheye, it was President Obama who reportedly said "Don't underestimate Joe's ability to f... things up." It is to show you once again that the “experts” and talking heads are ALL idiots and liars. When Biden says something like “I’m not making this up. Just look at the data.” the next time he whispers to the American people, remember this. You can’t really blame Joe, he was right when he said he was “not making this up”. He was just regurgitating what some other lying idiot who did make it up wrote down for Joe to try to read. But the actual facts are that those who are currently trying to run our lives have NO IDEA what they’re doing. A perfunctory perusal of the happenings of the past year seem to prove that beyond any shadow of any doubt, and we would all be better served to stop listening to them.
Get healthy, get strong, get social, and live your life without fear.
