Will the Pandemic Panic Card Win in 2020?

Will the Pandemic Panic Card Win in 2020?

– October 1, 2020

People want to be safe,” Joe Biden repeatedly declared in Tuesday night’s debate. The 2020 presidential race could turn into a referendum on whether vastly increasing government power can provide “freedom from fear.” This has been a recurring theme in recent American history that consistently brings out the worst in both politicians and voters.

The 2020 presidential campaign thus far has plenty of unpleasant parallels to 9/11 and the 2004 election. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 were the biggest intelligence failure by U.S. government agencies since Pearl Harbor. The Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored bushels of evidence of an international conspiracy and a bucket of warnings that Arabs with terrorist connections were receiving pilot training inside the U.S. Yet, after the attacks terrified the nation, polls speedily showed a doubling in the percentage of Americans who trusted government to “do the right thing.” The media fanned this blind faith as if it was the high road to public safety. President George W. Bush exploited that credulity to seize far more power and to deceive the nation into war against Iraq.

While Bush is now being lionized by the establishment media (thanks to his criticisms of Trump), few people recall that he ran the most fear-mongering presidential reelection campaign in modern American history. Bush 2004 campaign ads showed firemen carrying a flag-draped corpse from the rubble at Ground Zero in New York and a pack of wolves coming to attack home viewers as an announcer warned that “weakness attracts those who are waiting to do America harm.” One commentator suggested that the ad hinted that voters would be eaten by wolves if John Kerry won.

Just before 2004 Election Day a senior GOP strategist told the New York Daily News that “anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush.” People who saw terrorism as the biggest issue in the 2004 election voted for Bush by a 6 to 1 margin. Moises Naim, editor of Foreign Policy , observed that the Bush campaign was “using the fear factor almost exclusively. This is a highly researched decision with all the tools of public opinion management. It’s nothing but a reflection that it works.”

Like the federal failures preceding the 9/11 attacks, the Covid pandemic was far more damaging because of testing and other blunders by the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration. The World Health Organization spurred disastrous policies by forecasting a mortality that was 50 times higher than the rate the U.S. experienced. The pointless, punitive lockdowns imposed by governors and mayors disrupted hundreds of millions of American lives while doing little or nothing to curb the spread of the virus to seven million Americans. In the same way that Bush lionized federal agencies after 9/11 despite their failures to prevent the attacks, Biden and his media allies are pushing for blind faith in “data and science” – regardless of the debacles we have seen this year.

One epidemiologist suggests that Covid-19 should actually be called SARS-NoV-3. Biden and the Democratic Party are seeking power by seeking voters to hold Trump personally responsible for more than 200,000 Americans dying from the pandemic. In his public comments, Biden has repeatedly wildly exaggerated the death toll, publicly asserting that millions of Americans havebeen killed by Covid-19. It is difficult to know if Biden was intentionally misleading audiences or was momentarily clueless.

In Tuesday’s debate, Biden looked into the camera and asked viewers: “How many of you got up this morning and had an empty chair at the kitchen table because someone died of Covid?” It is most unlikely that people would have such an empty chair – unless they resided in a nursing home. The Justice Department Office of Civil Rights is currently investigating “governors of states that issued orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan required nursing homes to admit Covid-19 patients to their vulnerable populations, often without adequate testing.”

Biden has responded to the fears he helped fanned by proposing a national lockdown if Covid infection rates rise if he is elected president. Rather than learning from the failures of earlier lockdowns, Biden proffers a bigger Reverse Neutron Bomb – something that obliterates the remnants of the economy and schooling while purportedly preserving the lives (if not the sanity) of the people locked into their homes.

In the 2004 election, Bush narrowly defeated John Kerry, aided in part by a slew of bogus terrorist attack warnings that injected last-minute tremors into many voters. The next five weeks could bring many similar pandemic false alarms, perhaps spurred by bogus test data that is even more shameless than the FBI’s 2004 ludicrous “booby-trapped beer coolers” terrorist alert to get the redneck vote out for George W.

Democrats have periodically portrayed themselves as the party of civil liberties but they cannot afford that pretense when playing the Pandemic Panic Card. As federal judge William Stickman IV recently ruled, “Broad population-wide lockdowns are such a dramatic inversion of the concept of liberty in a free society as to be nearly presumptively unconstitutional.” Attorney General William Barr was even more blunt, warning that imposing “a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders, is like house arrest. It’s — you know, other than slavery… this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history.”

The 2020 election may turn on how many Americans remain utterly terrified by the political-media alarms on Covid-19. British philosopher John Stuart Mill warned in 1842: “Persons of timid character are the more predisposed to believe any statement, the more it is calculated to alarm them.” It is almost irrelevant whether 10 or 20 or 30 percent of the citizenry can see through a politician’s fearmongering. In a democracy, as long as enough people can be frightened, all people can be subjugated.

Biden is effectively promising to rescue people who “want to be safe.” But there is nothing in either his record or the records of federal agencies or governors to indicate that people would be better off closeted until notified it is safe to come out. In the long run, people have more to fear from politicians than from viruses.

The same people that want to be “safe” are the same people who will give freedom in exchange for government control over their lives.

How foolish must people be to thing government can keep you safe from illness.

Are these people living in some kind of a bubble? Who exactly is going to pay for a person staying in a bubble. Why would those not at high risk need to be in a bubble?

I am so sick and tired of sheeple.

The airport scorning comes to mind. The facade of security for a strip search.

I find it hilarious that people think masks will keep them safe. Government shutdowns will keep them safe. Pretty funny saying at home, trashing the economy, masks all for the illusion of safety. Th other shoe has yet to hit, the 7 trillion spent so far this year with reduced tax collections will certainly raise the debt and in return one day the bill will come due. All for the illusion of safety.

I’ve pretty much had it with the right who are suppose to be conservative can spend with the best the democrats have to offer.

When did Americans become the snow flakes we see today???

Nothing in your post I can disagree with.

At some point in time everyone is going to be exposed to COVID just like the cold or flu.

It’s mutated enough that it isn’t quite the killer it was in China and Italy. There is no reason for the economy being shut down other than governors who are out of their mind, control freaks.

American’s became snow flakes when the left infiltrated schools and families left traditional morals and values behind.

Two parent’s working, kids stuck in daycare with no one to really raise them but strangers, etc.

Sad times.

The mutation is under way as more people become infected. It’s likely the vaccine will be also less effective as the virus mutates. The novel coronavirus seems to mutate once every two weeks, according to a team of researchers who have analyzed genetic information. Chinese researches have discovered over 30 mutations so far.

Like any virus, the novel coronavirus mutates, and teams of scientists are keeping track of various strains that are circulating right now. So far, there hasn’t been any meaningful mutation that would make the virus more lethal or compromise existing vaccine research, and that’s good news. However, there is one mutation that’s seen plenty of coverage in the past few months, the D614G strainthat’s believed to be more infectious than its predecessors. Some researchers think the mutation allows the virus to hook up to cells more efficiently than before, and that’s what makes it more infectious. But not all mutations will help the SARS-CoV-2 virus. A new study has just been published in a medical journal proposing that a new coronavirus mutation actually results in a milder case of COVID-19.

Published in The Lancet (via Medical Express ), the study details a coronavirus strain identified as ∆382 that doctors in Singapore studied between January and March, comparing it with other available SARS-CoV-2 strains that were circulating at the time.

The researchers explain that the ∆382 mutation involves the deletion of 382 nucleotides that appears in the open reading frame 8 region (ORF8), which is a known spot for mutations in coronaviruses. As a result, the ORF8 protein is not produced, the researchers said. During the SARS epidemic nearly 20 years ago, a deletion of 29 nucleotides in the ORF8 region resulted in a variant of the virus that was unable to replicate as efficiently as the wild-type SARS virus.

The scientists observed 131 COVID-19 patients in early 2020 and found that 29 of them carried only the ∆382 version of the virus, with 10 more who were infected with a mix between ∆382 and the wild-type virus. The researches observed the patients’ oxygen requirements to determine the effects of the mutation. The patients with ∆382 were less likely to need supplemental oxygen, even though they developed pneumonia at a similar rate as patients in the other groups. As a result of being able to breathe on their own, they were also less likely to develop hypoxia.

Furthermore, ∆382 patients had lower concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines that are usually associated with severe COVID-19. They also showed lower levels of growth factors associated with lung injury and regeneration, which implies their lungs were not as damaged.

The researchers note that the ∆382 groups also showed a better immune response to the virus, including more effective platelet regulation and T cell responses early in the infection. The patients also showed a more robust production of a cytokine called IFN-γ, which could explain the heightened immune response. Interestingly, the observations held true even when taking age groups and comorbidities into account. The researchers think this version of the virus triggers a reduced pro-inflammatory response and a less-damaging cytokine storm, which results in a milder COVID-19 case.

I will not be taking an unlicensed, experimental mRNA coronavirus vaccine, whose manufacturers are indemnified from being sued when it goes wrong.

And everyone get to choose.

Choose poorly you may end up with the virus.

It WILL go wrong. It is designed that way.

Got any proof???

No you don’t.

Just your conspiracy beliefs.

Your God is Hater of truth and truth tellers.

The PHG Foundation at the University of Cambridge gives us a substantial clue: “… better understanding of [RNA] vaccine adverse effects is needed – these can include inflammation or autoimmune reactions.”

Autoimmune reactions—the human immune system attacks healthy elements and processes of the body itself. The body goes to war with itself.


LOL, your truth is yours and yours alone.

Whee’s your proof from an unbiased source???

Nada, as always and your posts should be prefaced with IMHO!!!

info wars another idiot site that makes it up as you go.

Seems you know little to nothing about the immune system.

Do you know any better?

You’re shooting the messenger.
OR are you triggered by Mike Adams as well? LOL

I certainly know quite a bit more than the run of the mill hack like yourself as I have been dealing with immune systems issues for over a decade.

Messenger just like the messengers at politico.

There are numerous sources that are unbiased or slightly biased where you actually can gain information. However people tha are extremists tend to read what they believe and think it’s the truth.

Let us know how you are after you take the mRNA vaccine.
I can’t wait.

Don;t need the vaccine already had the corona virus.

It’s not the federal governments place to implement a national lockdown. Also, it’s already been ruled unconstitutional in multiple federal courts… Joe Biden doesn’t really know what he’s saying.

If the doom flu is so deadly, how come the media has to come out every day to remind us?
