Falling for the Biggest Hoax in History

It will probably take months if not years for the truth of the Covid-19 pandemic to emerge, but when it does will any politician take responsibility for the lies and disinformation or the damage this hoax caused this great nation? I don’t think so, but what it did prove was what happens when the Democrats are in charge. They may not be in the White House but it is the House that wields the power over legislation and our money. Couple this power with the useful idiots in the mainstream media to promote the widespread hysteria, and we then had the total capitulation of a frightened nation

Nah. Anthropomorphic global warming is a way bigger hoax. Wuhan virus scare is real, but the continued overreaction silly.

If Trump wins and overcomes the Marxists vote count crimes, I will not be surprise at all if NASA scientists start the hoax that space aliens are about to invade earth and they are demanding that Trump be impeached or else they'll kill us all. I'm not kidding. The world is at that point and will literally believe ANYTHING, especially if it's "science." Plan on something that ridiculous in the near future.

I am still not sure the Wuhan virus was not a plot by the Chinese working with the Democrats to destroy Trump's economy. It is certain the Chinese have monetary ties to Joe Biden's family. They also are angered by Trump's America First policies that are hurting their economy, and bringing jobs home.

Real science actually confirms that the extreme measures still being taken are indeed a hoax. We now have about 8 months of data to confirm the degree of danger presented by this virus. And the data says the following for the United States: 1) The average case incidence rate to date is just under 1%. 2) The average death rate to date is about 3% of those who were infected. So the probability that any person in the U.S. would get infected and die is .01 x .03 = .003. 3) While the CDC doesn't require states to use totally standardized statistics that include confirmed demographic data, there is ample evidence that the following factors are also very significant in regard to the exactly which individuals who get the virus actually die from it: multiple co-morbidities and advanced age (over 70). In summary, a reasonably healthy person under the age of 70 has an extremely low probability of dying from this virus. Conclusion: the extreme measures taken are NOT justified by the data/science.

I really do hope this is the year the aliens stop by to say howdy. It would be the single greatest event in human history and would give us something more interesting to ponder than the never ending series of democrat corruption, hoaxes and frauds. I wonder if the recent releases of the UFO footage are preparing us for that so it isn't such a shock to those who have never watched Twilight Zone or Alien Nation.

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but as a matter of hard historical fact some conspiracies are real. For example, the attempted coup that involved a complex web of individuals and federal agencies. (Lincoln's assassination was another conspiracy involving a US president.). It's easy to forget that last November, say, Trump looked like a shoo-in for re-election, mainly because the economy was cranking along in high gear-- nothing like it in many decades. A Chinese scientist on Tucker last night said she has scientific evidence that the Wuhan virus was manufactured in a lab. And she said that the CCP deliberately released the virus. Why would they do that? Well, look at what actually happened. The magnificent economy that Trump created-- and his ace in the hole for re-election-- has been hobbled. It is a mere shadow of what it was. And when that happened, Trump's chances for re-election suddenly looked questionable. China wants their stooge, Biden, as president. If it seems outlandish to suggest that they would deliberately kill hundreds of thousands of people to get him in office, including their own people, you just don't know the history of the CCP. Mao killed tens of millions of Chinese. They are hellbent on world domination, and Trump came out of nowhere as a major obstacle. Yes, COVID-19 is a hoax, but I think there is a very good chance that it is an elaborate hoax with a specific purpose, perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Party and the Democrat Party-- which is filled with communists.

A pandemic panic. Lockdowns, facemasks, and social distancing. Race riots. Fake investigations. A coup. Nearly 60 million lost their jobs. Tens of thousands of deaths. Is this what we have to look forward to when its an election year and the incumbent is a Republican? We cannot go on like this. People have to be held responsible.

The Mother Hoax of all time is Socialism. That a beneficial society can be built on envy and theft and mass murder. COVID-19 AKA The Democrat Flu, is merely one of the many concocted supporting hoaxes, along with Global Warming, The War On Poverty, The New Deal, Progressivism, and so on. Read Shafarevich's The Socialist Phenomenon, available in an essay online.

Ditto, #15. Alicia has been ill in the past and I’ve been concerned about her too. Wonderful to have her back. Good post #9, but I disagree on one point - the economy is NOT a mere shadow of what it was. I just looked at my investments and they are right where they were in January. Every penny lost in March is back. That is a whole lot more than a shadow.

The head of the CDC gets on his soap box today about how we all need to wear our masks because they work and are better than the vaccine, "I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings. I’ve said that if we did it for six, eight, 10, 12 weeks we'd bring this pandemic under control.” Sounds a lot like Biden's 3 months of mandatory masking. Politicizing the face mask much, Robert Redfield? Every day it's more and more evident that while Covid is real, its presence has been politically weaponized in an attempt to sway political opinion and control the American people.

Biden stiffed local media in campaign
visit to Duluth, Minnesota yesterday

Posted by Magnante 9/19/2020 9:57:14 AM Post Reply
One of the principal benefits of a presidential campaign visit to the hustings is supposed to be the opportunity for the candidate to appear on local media, talking to locally prominent reporters and anchors that reach viewers that normally pay little attention to national news. Locals often feel a sense of identification with their familiar local media figures and appreciate the attention from a national figure. It’s a corollary to the maxim that “all politics is local,” connecting the candidate to the hometown media, to whom the locals may feel a certain affinity.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday night after 27 years on the United States Supreme Court. I’m ignoring the Romans warning de mortuis nil nisi bonum (of the dead, say nothing but good).
