    This needs to be shared.

    "For months, the Washington Post and the rest of the mainstream media kept a morbid Covid-19 “death count” on their front pages and at the top of their news broadcasts. The coronavirus outbreak was all about the number of dead. The narrative was intended to boost governors like Cuomo in New York and Whitmer in Michigan, who turned their states authoritarian under the false notion that destroying people’s jobs, freedom, and lives would somehow keep a virus from doing what viruses always do: spread through a population until eventually losing strength and dying out.

    The “death count” was always the headline.

    But then all of a sudden early in June the mainstream media did a George Orwell and lectured us that it is all about “cases” and has always been all about “cases.” Death, and especially infection fatality rate, were irrelevant. Why? Because from the peak in April, deaths had decreased by 90 percent and were continuing to crash. That was not terrifying enough so the media pretended this good news did not exist.

    With massive increases in testing, the “case” numbers climbed. This is not rocket science: the more people you test the more “cases” you discover.

    Unfortunately our mainstream media is only interested in pushing the “party line.” So the good news that millions more have been exposed while the fatality rate continues to decline - meaning the virus is getting weaker - is buried under hysterical false reporting of “new cases.”

    Unfortunately many governors, including our own here in Texas, are incapable of resisting the endless lies of the mainstream media. They are putting Americans again through the nightmare of forced business closures, mandated face masks, and restrictions of Constitutional liberties based on false propaganda.

    In Texas the “second wave” propaganda has gotten so bad that the leaders of the four major hospitals in Houston took the extraordinary step late last week of holding a joint press conference to clarify that the scare stories of Houston hospitals being overwhelmed with Covid cases are simply untrue. Dr. Marc Boom of Houston Methodist said the reporting on hospital capacity is misleading. He said, “quite frankly, we’re concerned that there is a level of alarm in the community that is unwarranted right now.”

    In fact, there has been much reporting that the “spike” in Texas cases is not due to a resurgence of the virus but to hospital practices of Covid-testing every patient coming in for any procedure at all. If it’s a positive, well that counts as a “Covid hospitalization.” Why would hospitals be so dishonest in their diagnoses? Billions of appropriated Federal dollars are being funneled to facilities based on the number of “Covid cases” they can produce. As I’ve always said, if you subsidize something you get more of it. And that’s why we are getting more Covid cases.

    Let’s go back to the original measurements used to scare Americans into giving up their Constitutional liberties: the daily death numbers. Even though we know hospitals have falsely attributed countless deaths to “Covid-19” that were deaths WITH instead of FROM the virus, we are seeing actual deaths steadily declining over the past month and a half. Declining deaths are not a great way to push the “second wave” propaganda, so the media and politicians have moved the goal posts and decided that only “cases” are important. It’s another big lie.

    Resist propaganda and defend your liberty. That is the only way we’ll get through this."

    The second wave is non existent because we are still in the first.

    Whats going to happen when they find out how many people are getting VERY sick from their own bacteria in these masks.

    Now we`re seeing these masks being thrown out of car windows while going down the road.
    Lots of used masks laying everywhere. They`ve created a F`in monster, and its out of control.

    Nope, but it all makes sense as to why the numbers are "spiking". It also made me realize that they stopped touting the death toll number, since they have dropped so much.

    Ben,
    they have to lie about it... the govt is paying them for how many covid cases they get.

    Its all about the money that they get paid. There is nobody watching the cases to prove whether or not that the doctors and hospitals are lying. And they are LYING so that they can pilfer the money! The gov`t has done a piss poor job in following up with these TRUE cases. Most are being falsely made up!

    The second wave of the 1918 flu was deadlier than the first. Just wait a while and we will learn who, if anybody, was correct about this new bug.

    They initially guessed wrong already since they compared it to traditional flu bugs that we had experience treating . We can guess this new bug will mutate and maybe the rules will change. We live in interesting times

    I agree! they are disgusting!!!! I despise wearing one! they fog up my contacts and in my job this is a safety hazard. they're littered all over the damned street and parking lots too. I am so sick and tired of this being the "new normal."

    I feel, and look, like an idiot wearing one. it is very dehumanizing. gone are the days of chit chat and social pleasantries. I am not going to sit around and talk to someone through a ****ing face mask!!!

    Ron Paul has about as much credibility as Alex Jones or Obama.

    Remember, he was the arse-whole that said Chris Kyle got what he deserved.

    The local hospitals here are now laying people off because they were told to stop everyday surgeries and procedures. Now they don’t have patients to service! Again here in PA the numbers have been misstated.
    Our illustrious Governor (they were trying to impeach) and his so called medical health general has just ordered the face mask edict whenever outdoors they must be on.
    Well since I’m a lung cancer survivor with only one lung I’m not wearing one! He can use his masks for toilet paper! With a mask in place I can’t breath!
    Now this edict is not law so they cannot enforce anything.
    My thoughts are if you want to wear one knock yourself out, if you don’t that’s your preference.
    My wife had the Chinese Cooties for 3 weeks, I was around her as much as I had to be but we kept separated for the most part.
    Guess what I didn’t get it! I don’t have it now either. Then only other people I heard that had it was from or in medical care?
    I read an article from the Washington Post from two or three leading specialists, their final statement?
    This is the Greatest scam Americans will ever see!
    Take it for its worth, I’m not arguing any points to this, I know one thing for me though there is no “New Normal” bull**** for me it’s business as usual!

    Too many people in close contact with too many farm animals. That pretty much says it all. Until the mega farms and the small family farms are cleaned up and overcrowding eliminated, this will continue.

    Dr. Stack has called China a “Giant Viral Engine.”

    There will be more zoonotic species jumpers emerge from that area.

    A new record today, over 57000 new cases.
    That's if you're able to accept reality. This is a failing state level of utter mismanagement.[​IMG]

    Pretty easy to accomplish big numbers of new cases if you are putting people who knew someone who knew someone who happened to walk close to someone who has tested positive as a positive case. This has become a ****ing bad joke.

    MSM is nothing but lies, they gave up reporting actual, real, truthful news decades ago. Since Obama MSM has become nothing but a propaganda arm of the Democratic/Socialist Party in short "Domestic Commies". So it's MSM, DONKEY, CHINA, HOLLYWOOD, SILICON VALLEY, RHINOS, and MUSIC INDUSTRY, versus TRUMP and CONSERVATIVES.

    HARDBALL IS BEING PLAYED IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA RIGHT NOW.

    A VOTE FOR TRUMP IN NOV2020 IS A VOTE FOR THE USA and NOT CHINA w/PuppetJOE

    While the number of CASES has temporarily increased, The number of FATALITIES is declining. But because of selective reporting of the facts by the media, the public doesn't know this. The politically biased news media simply want's to milk the crisis for all it's worth.

    After 10-Week Decline In COVID-19 Deaths, It May Soon No Longer Be An Epidemic

    July 6, 2020 By Allison Schuster The Federalist

    The United States now has so few deaths due to COVID-19 that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Friday it is approaching the threshold for dipping below the level of an epidemic.

    The CDC defines an epidemic as an outbreak from which the number of deaths per week exceeds a given percentage of total deaths within the nation. The number of deaths from COVID-19 has steadily declined since hitting its peak in early May after it began spiking in the second week in March.

    That threshold death rate for COVID-19 and other diseases such as influenza and pneumonia fluctuates, ranging typically from 5 to 7 percent at the height of flu season. The CDC said the Wuhan flu death rate had, during the last week in June, become equal to the epidemic threshold of 5.9 percent, reaching its lowest point since the end of last year.

    The agency warned this is likely to change as more death certificates from recent weeks are processed, but it could mean hopeful news for the upcoming weeks. The total number of deaths due to COVID-19 has been declining for 10 straight weeks, concluding with week 26 that ended June 27. This suggests the United States could be on the verge of not being considered in an epidemic.

    “Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 9.0% during week 25 to 5.9% during week 26, representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC,” according to the CDC’s website.

    Fear over an impending second wave of cases and subsequent deaths due to COVID-19 has generated caution in reopening businesses. In the parts of the country that have reopened, however, death rates haven’t widely spiked.

    Despite the United States reaching its highest single-day surge of new COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, the death rate continues to remain stagnant, relatively unaffected by the increase in diagnoses. Cases have increased for week 26 in most regions nationally, but still remain lower than peaks in March and April.

    While policymakers toy with the idea of a second shutdown, the CDC is reporting a lower death rate even while COVID-19 cases are recently on the rise.

    The left is not happy people aren't dying. They may start putting the infected back in nursing homes to get a 2nd lock down sold to the public with a rising death toll.
