Ron Paul: The Media Is Lying About The “Second Wave”

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

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.

I respect Ron Paul, but if he uses numbers they better be correct. There has only been a single day where deaths were at 10% of the April peak and that was on June 21. June 28 was another day that was close to 10%. Since that peak the number of deaths had constantly decreased and in mind June ranged around 30-25% from that April peak. They are currently approaching an average of 20%. This is the nature of a peak and a curve, it will reach a top and then the numbers will diminish. But to say that they… Read more »
