Trump Rally Flu Spread Claim: False

Even Snopes isn’t buying this one.
h/t SMOD on A♠


U.S. President Donald Trump’s June 20, 2020, election rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, during the coronavirus pandemic could be connected to two days of 100% positive COVID-19 tests reported in the state more than a week later.




As U.S. President Donald Trump faced political fallout from his June 20, 2020, rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, many speculated about the health consequences of the large gathering due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. One such speculation took place on MSNBC’s “All in With Chris Hayes” program, where on June 29, the anchor addressed a spike in COVID-19 cases in the state.

Though Hayes emphasized there was no way to confirm cause and effect, his analysis led to an incorrect theory that the rally resulted in two days of 100% positive COVID-19 tests a week later. In a later segment, Hayes clarified that the data he presented was incomplete. …

A Reign of Error

Media Lies About Trump Mount Rushmore Speech An Ugly Preview Of What’s To Come

Tristan Justice, The Federalist, July 8, 2020

Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore.

“We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and we understand that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world.”

The media translation of this could come straight out of an article from the satire website Babylon Bee. Trump says America is good, media leaps to Orange Man Bad.

“President Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech at Mount Rushmore, leaning into the culture wars and barely mentioning the pandemic,” blasted The New York Times just moments following the Independence Day address.…

If one hadn’t been convinced already, the media infected with a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome have now shown they’ll lie about anything. After spending nearly half a decade attempting to legitimize fanatical conspiracies about Russia in a brazen attempt to undermine Trump’s presidency,the media’s alleged truth-tellers have misled the public on virutally every issue since Trump took office.…



Kung Flu Experts’ Inexpertise

Minuteman on A♠: It’s time to start cataloging the lies promulgated to initiate, buildup and sustain the Wuhan Flu hoax.

Asshoes on Facebook quit coming out to play after I posted this. Because I called every one of them every step of the way.

Not totally comprehensive, but it’s a start:

Virus BS

Dr. Birx Reportedly Believes Coronavirus Death Toll Inflated By Up To 25%

Panic for Nothing: Now Even the CDC Admits COVID-19 is Not a Major Threat

WHO guidance: Healthy people should wear masks only when “taking care of” coronavirus patients

Washington Inflates COVID-19 Numbers, Includes Gunshot Victims Among Deaths

Almost 96% of the country’s virus fatalities had previous medical conditions, data from Italy’s ISS health institute show.

Horowitz: The CDC confirms remarkably low coronavirus death rate. Where is the media?

Johns Hopkins Death Toll Does NOT Include States’ Downward Adjustments, Ignores Fundamental Flaws in Data

The CDC’s New ‘Best Estimate’ Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

Stanford study suggests coronavirus might not be as deadly as flu

State Revises COVID Numbers, Removes Nearly 25% of Deaths Originally Attributed to Virus

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s 15 Totally Wrong Predictions and Contradictions

Former neurosurgeon says masks are ineffective against COVID-19 and can cause health problems

Bogus 2.2 million deaths prediction
Neither the high infection rate nor the high fatality rate holds up under scrutiny.

Adolf’s Followers Have Their Own ‘Truth’

Mary Chastain over at Legal Insurrection writes about this, and presents the follow-up tweets of those who subscribe to the Dan Ratheresque “fake but accurate” attitude toward reality.

“Fake or not, trumps similarities to him are still there. He’s a modern day Hitler and he’s only going to get more and more disturbing the closer to election you get”

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a sign of terrible mental illness.

We have been lied to

Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review

…The coronavirus fascists have succeeded in cementing their illogical, immoral, and illegal policies through the prism of false information about the timing of the virus, the specific nature and severity of the overall fatality rate, the number of actual deaths, and the utility (or perhaps harm) of lockdown policies in actually mitigating deaths – all the while obfuscating the much higher collateral deaths and damage caused by the lockdown itself.

Every day we learn new information demonstrating the lies driving lockdown. Here are some of the most important ones from over the weekend.…

  1. COVID-19 death numbers inflation
  2. longer lockdowns had worse results
  3. Outside nursing homes, the fatality rate never warranted such action
  4. Outside New York, this is barely worse than bad flu seasons
  5. Excess deaths are from the lockdowns, not the virus
  6. Social distancing was invented by a high-school kid and politicians, not scientists

…And a Child’s Wild Idea Shall Mislead Them

A Kid With No Job Came Up With the Idea of Shutting Down the Economy in a Pandemic

by Victoria Taft, PJ Media

A 15-year-old New Mexico high school student came up with the original idea of socially separating during a pandemic in 2005. She theorized along the lines of “Hey if we all skip school we won’t get each other sick!” She got third place in an Intel science fair for this.

Her dad happened to be a lab rat at a major government lab and voila, within a few short years of him proving out her thesis with supercomputer modeling, we’re now in a pandemic-induced depression.

The story’s more complicated than that – obviously – but who ever thought that shutting down the economy during a pandemic was a good idea?

It turns out there were many hands involved in this debacle. …

Why Does Trump Hate Pangolins?!?

Pandemic shines harsh light on Trump’s failure to protect pangolins

For more than five years, wildlife conservationists in the US have been clamoring for the government to provide Endangered Species Act protections to pangolins, a group of imperiled ant-eating mammals that are widely, and often illicitly, trafficked for their scales and meat. The Trump administration, however, has refused to act and that refusal has suddenly taken on grave new implications.

Earlier this year, scientists in China identified pangolins, along with bats, as one of the possible animal hosts involved in the transmission of the deadly coronavirus from wildlife to humans.…

The Trump administration also wants to cut more than $300m from programs run by the state department and USAid that promote habitat conservation and combat wildlife trafficking in Asia, Africa and elsewhere, according to a February report from the US Global Leadership Coalition. In light of threats such as Covid-19 and the climate crisis, the report asserts, the administration’s proposed cuts are “out of touch with America’s interests”.

Covid-19, scientists and advocates argue, has proven that this is not a time to reduce the US’s commitments to protecting and restoring the world’s ailing animal populations.…

Hmmm. Call me cynical, but maybe preserving the animal that carries a bunch of dangerous viruses isn’t the right course?

Dems Self-Destructing


Delete-apolooza! Axios and The Hill attempt to memory-hole blaming Trump on the fish-cleaner poisoning, but we have the screenshots

So much wrong. For one, the human drug is hydroxychloroquine. Chloroquine phosphate is the agent in the aquarium cleanser the couple chose to consume, and it is not found in pill form, as pictured in their tweet here. It also is not the anti-malarial medication.
