For months, the Washington Post and the rest of the mainstream media have been painfully “counting the deaths” of Covid-19 on their front pages and at the top of their news broadcasts. A coronavirus outbreak was associated with the death toll. The story was aimed at supporting governors such as Cuomo in New York and Whitmer in Michigan, who made their states authoritarian under the false notion that destroying jobs, freedom, and people’s lives would somehow keep the virus from being a virus always does: spreads through the population, until ultimately loses power and dies out.
Death Count has always been the headline.
But suddenly, in early June, the mainstream media did George Orwell and told us that it was all about “affairs” and always about “affairs.” Death, and especially the death rate from infection, did not matter. What for? Because since the peak in April, mortality has dropped by 90 percent and continues to fall. It was not so scary, so the media pretended that this good news does not exist.
With a huge increase in testing, the number of “cases” has increased. This is not rocket science: the more people you check, the more “cases” you discover.
[ZH: ignore the odd spike in deaths, this was due to a reclassification of nursing home deaths in NJ – the trend is clear otherwise]
Unfortunately, our mainstream media are only interested in promoting the “party line.” Thus, the good news is that millions more people have been uncovered, while the mortality rate continues to decline – which means that the virus is becoming weaker – buried under a hysterical false message about “new cases.”
Unfortunately, many governors, including ours here in Texas, are not able to withstand the endless lies of the mainstream media. They again put Americans in the nightmare of forced closure of enterprises, mandatory masks and restrictions on constitutional freedoms based on false propaganda.
In Texas, the “second wave” propaganda was so aggravated that the leaders of four large Houston hospitals took an unusual step at the end of last week – they held a joint press conference to find out that the scary stories that the hospitals in Houston were overwhelmed with Covid affairs simply didn’t corresponds to reality. Dr. Mark Boom from the Houston Methodologist said that reporting on hospital facilities is misleading. He said: “Frankly, we are concerned that there is a level of anxiety in the community that is unjustified right now.”
In fact, there have been many reports that the “surge” in Texas cases is not related to the revival of the virus, but to the practice of Covid testing in hospitals, when each patient undergoes a procedure at all.
If this is a positive result, it is considered a “Covid hospitalization.”
Why are hospitals so dishonest in their diagnoses? Billions appropriated Federal dollars sent to institutions depending on the number of “Covid cases” they can make. As I always said, if you subsidize something, you get more. And that is why we get more cases of Covid.
Let’s get back to the original dimensions used to scare Americans into giving up their constitutional freedoms: the number of daily deaths. Despite the fact that we know that hospitals mistakenly attribute countless Covid-19 deaths, which were deaths of CO, not a virus, we see that actual deaths have been steadily declining over the past month and a half. Mortality reduction is not a good way to push the “second wave” propaganda, so the media and politicians have moved control posts and decided that only “cases” are important. This is another big lie.
Resist propaganda and defend your freedom. This is the only way to get through this.
