It’s almost like The New York Times is nothing but a partisan gossip rag. Yesterday, a story was put out by Maggie Haberman that made a rather convenient claim that just so happened to reinforce every media narrative. Namely, that an FDA official named Rick Bright was fired for selflessly sounding the alarm on the supposed vast dangers of hydroxychloroquine.(Snip)For example, Bright himself requested the FDA give emergency approval for hydroxychloroquine.(Snip)Not only was Bright not fired for anything to do with hydroxychloroquine, his ouster has been in the making long before anyone was even concerned with the Wuhan virus. Apparently, Bright has a history of insubordination and believing he has more

I loved it when Trump was asked about this in the press briefing yesterday. He said he he doesn’t know who Rick Bright is. So I guess he didn’t call for his removal. The journalists just invent these stories based on their own anti-Trump bias. Must be true because it could be true.

Sounds about right with these news nitwits. At President Trump's briefing he was asked about it and he told the reporter that was the first time he had heard the name and knew nothing about it. These networks need to either be silenced or heavily reviewed before going on air. They all made an issue about Corona in one "meat" processing plant which happened to be Smithfield (pork) and caused a run on beef at the stores for no good reason. (We have at least three major MEAT processing plants in the continental US and numerous sub plants (NOT COUNTING THE PORK PROCESSING PLANTS) and then the anchor said the person in charge of all this said no plants would be shut down because the meat did not carry the virus. The Anchor even said there "might" be a shortage of food (with no factual information at all! to end his ridiculous story. I also read a quote from a reporter with CNN who said that "almost everybody" ( a definitive statistic if I ever heard one) who was on the [much touted (New York now has over 1000 they don't need) absolutely massively necessary] ventilators died. WOW!! Think of all the families of folks on ventilators who heard that irresponsible remark!!! These supposedly "trusted" news reporters NEED to be seriously fact checked before they sink this country! I, myself, only hear some of this while passing through the channels. I don't listen to their poison tongues any more. I WOULD SUGGEST YOU DON'T EITHER.

The problem that bureaucrats have with Trump is that he is perfectly willing to fire them for incompetence, something that afflicts a significant part of Washington. What's encouraging is that most of Trump's actions are holding up quite nicely. When about 50% of Washington has been fired, maybe we can get some real work done.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, the MSM should have been calling for the firing of CDC director Redfield, who said during a press briefing on April 15: "Through February 27, this country only had 14 cases. We did that isolation and that contact tracing, and it was very successful. But then, when the virus more exploded, it got beyond the public health capacity.” "It was very successful"...meaning, what, exactly? It was certainly 'very successful' at not providing any meaningful measure of the progress of the pandemic. What he did not say was that he was the director of the CDC in February, a critical month during which the CDC conducted a whopping total of only 348 tests in the entire continental USA. In other words, Redfield had no clue a pandemic had broken out, because his own testing program was so ridiculously small that it could not have possibly returned any meaningful measures.

Yesterday, I figured him hiring Blasey-Ford's Shyster was a sure signal he was a fraud. Reckon I figured right. Lawyers like that need to be disbarred and serve more time in prison than their crooked clients.

My observation is medical professionals fall in two camps. Those who want single payer socialized medicine and those who don't. My bet is the good Dr. is the former.

Looks Like Trump Was Right About
The Coronavirus Fatality Rate

Posted by earlybird 4/24/2020 4:58:05 PM Post Reply
In early March, President Donald Trump was lambasted for saying on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show that he had a hunch the coronavirus fatality rate, which the World Health Organization pegged then at 3 to 4 percent, was in fact much lower, under 1 percent. Many commentators, myself included pointed out that the beginning of a pandemic medical crisis was not the time to be floating hunches. But, as we always knew was possible, it looks now like the president might well have been right. New data from random antibody tests conducted in New York State suggest that as many as 2.7 million people statewide have had the coronavirus.

The new documents, which were filed under seal by the Department of Justice Friday, allegedly include exonerating evidence about Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his conversations with foreign diplomats as Trump’s top incoming foreign policy adviser and is currently attempting to withdraw his plea, as well as evidence of malfeasance by the FBI during its investigation of Flynn.

A Washington Examiner report on a recent expansion of John Durham’s team, to include U.S. Attorney Anthony Scarpelli, may reconcile recent earlier reports by John Solomon of “clear evidence” showing Durham is narrowing in on some key DOJ and FBI figures. According to the Examiner Scarpelli was brought over in part based on his work on Violent Crimes and the Narcotics Trafficking Section of the DOJ. In that capacity Anthony Scarpelli would hold a Top Secret/SCI clearance (he does); which becomes a valuable necessity for the specifics of the type of investigation ongoing.

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) actually funded a study on Bat Coronavirus, which was a project that included scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab at the center of controversy over their bat research.

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded bat-coronavirus research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China to the tune of US$3.7 million, a recent article in the British newspaper Daily Mail revealed. Back in October 2014, the US government had placed a federal moratorium on gain-of-function (GOF) research – altering natural pathogens to make them more deadly and infectious – as a result of rising fears about a possible pandemic caused by an accidental or deliberate release of these genetically engineered monster germs.(Snip) Dr Anthony Fauci(Snip) outsourced in 2015 the GOF research to China’s Wuhan lab and licensed the lab to continue receiving US government funding.

Expanded and frequent Covid-19 testing has emerged as a necessary precondition for reopening America and resuming something like normal life. But political leaders and citizens need a better understanding of how testing works, how testing can go wrong, and why tests don’t necessarily indicate immunity to disease. As we move into the next phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, we also need a better understanding of viral antibodies and how serological tests differ from tests for the novel coronavirus itself. Tests can trick us into thinking we were never infected when we were, and vice-versa, which in some cases can present a real danger. Serology is the study of blood serum,

Earlier this week, Fox News’ Brit Hume suggested it’s time we consider lockdown policy as possibly being “a colossal public policy calamity.” Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox airwaves Tuesday night, Hume discussed the disastrous side effects of stay-at-home orders adopted by nearly every state in the union, highlighting the irreparable harm done to the folks’ livelihood and savings, and the social toll the isolation has caused, particularly for children, who are at extremely low risk for novel coronavirus. To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday that New York will report a $13.3 billion shortfall in revenue compared with its original forecast — representing a 14% decline in the state’s projected receipts. The Empire State, which has been hit harder by the coronavirus pandemic than anywhere else in the U.S., currently forecasts $61 billion in total lost revenue between fiscal years 2021 and 2024, Cuomo said. “What you’re going to see is what we expected,” Cuomo said at a press conference, referring to the state’s assessment of the virus’ economic impact.

More alarming, Harvard Magazine this week unleashed a thoroughly unfounded attack on homeschooling, drawing on the work of Harvard University law professor Elizabeth Bartholet.

The novel coronavirus pandemic will define the modern era in the same way World War II shaped an earlier generation, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says in a 11-page memo outlining his ideas on how best to tackle the disease. “This is like a world war, except in this case, we’re all on the same side,” he writes. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $250 million to the battle and Gates has been speaking up regularly to influence its direction — something that has sometimes placed him at odds with President Donald Trump and made him a target of right-wing pundits and conspiracy theorists.
