The Coronavirus Hoax

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis.

On Face the Nation, Fauci did his best to further damage an already tanking economy by stating, “Right now, personally, myself, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant.” He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this?

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to wipe out these microscopic enemies?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.

18 months is the big number here in the UK. That is frankly BS. If context was given it might be 18 months to fully expunge the risk not how long we’ll be under the cosh as paranoia suggests. if everyone makes sensible efforts like a 2 week quarenteen and associated observation. Start to loosen the restrictions on movement every couple of weeks (those affected by the virus being restricted longer) and within about 6-9 months (probably less than that) you can have the country full back on its feet. Maintain hygene and observation after that and while there will… Read more »

I think I could have written every word of this article.

From Sylvain Laforest: “I think that even if many people understand, or begin to understand, that the official news media repeatedly lie, they still have not assimilated it in their heads! The current panic all over the place demonstrates this quite well. I looked at the list of global virus statistics. For me, 3 countries have been directly attacked (China, Iran, Italy) and everything else is in collateral damage. The very nature of the European Union demonstrates the danger faced by nations which, in the present case, no longer have borders with Italy. But the list says a lot more:… Read more »

It’s another case of the boy who cried “Wolf”. The Western World has been fed so many lies that the population no longer has any confidence about what or who to believe.

We should not forget that Anthony Fauci is a convicted felon and a scientific fraud. Back in the AIDs heyday, he was found guilty of falsifying data in a federally funded study on the heterosexual transmission of AIDS. Fauci–co-holder of the patent on AIDS test kits–had much to gain by getting the public to believe that AIDS was a serious threat to everyone. Why should anyone believe what this guy has to say?

This needs to be open for all to read. I smell a rat in all of this. I’ve been feeling like this since day one. We need true statistics and not just by word of mouth. Lord hear our prayers. Thank you Jesse and Terry.
