As with everything in America in the current year, medical science has been hopelessly corrupted by leftist politicians, twisted into a political tool to force compliance and increase their own power. The mask has slipped off, and every day brings news of more reversals of previous guidance that was preached by major media as above scrutiny or question because it was claimed to be “science,” no matter how inconsistent or ridiculous it seemed.
Article by Sean Harshey from WND.
From the beginning of the COVID pandemic, it was obvious that official medical guidance and public health policy was being driven by political considerations. In early 2020, when major media began reporting on the novel coronavirus in China and the possibility of its coming to the U.S., health experts minimized the danger to Americans and urged the public not to worry. As late as March, Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” telling Americans, “There’s no reason to be walking around in masks. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better … but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.” [Emphasis added.] Within days, though, Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention led the full-blown panic being driven by Democrats and their allies in major media. Officials claimed computer models (of mysterious origin and using unknown methodology) showed that millions of Americans would soon be dead from COVID and that we must shut down the U.S. economy, cancel medical procedures nationwide to free up medical resources, keep Americans confined to their homes, shut schools, make everyone wear masks and prohibit people from being physically near each other.
The sudden reversal, from encouraging calm to inciting panic, coincided with the complete collapse of Democrats’ impeachment fiasco and the surprising increase in President Trump’s subsequent approval rating. The failure of Democrats’ years-long attempt to drive down his approval ratings – through bottomless investigations of the Russian collusion hoax, Stormy Daniels’ accusations, hysterical charges of racist immigration policies and ridiculous Ukrainian phone call histrionics – all resulted in a strengthened presidency and roaring economy in the spring of an election year. COVID was immediately seized by Democrats as the next occasion to bash President Trump and slam the brakes on the economy. Nancy Pelosi said of COVID “this is an opportunity. Every crisis is” – and the recent book “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency” quotes Biden adviser Anita Dunn as saying “COVID is the best thing that ever happened” for the Biden campaign.
Even though most Americans dutifully shut their businesses, stayed home and wore masks because it seemed inconceivable that public health officials would exaggerate dangers to intentionally destroy the U.S. economy and provide a new excuse to attack the president, it became increasingly clear that is exactly what was happening as hospitals sat mostly empty and the claim these unprecedented measures were only temporary (“Only two weeks to ‘flatten the curve'”) turned into months of draconian authoritarianism in Democrat-controlled cities and states and were used as a political weapon. That reality also became apparent as people realized there was little or no difference in infection and death rates between areas with severe COVID restrictions and those places that remained largely open. The insistence on continued COVID restrictions and mask mandates, even after being vaccinated, has fully exposed the entire virus panic as a partisan power grab.
Now, as Americans are in open revolt against continued mask mandates and other restrictions, the administration has decided it is politically impossible to continue the charade while simultaneously claiming the various COVID vaccines are safe and effective.
In Senate hearings in March, Fauci’s sad attempts to explain the need for continued COVID restrictions after vaccination when questioned by GOP Sen. Rand Paul (also an accomplished physician) by hiding behind a generic reference to “science” were so embarrassing that Democrats saw the political necessity to shift the narrative.
The mask has fallen off.
Last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suddenly changed guidance, saying vaccinated people could safely go without a mask and no longer needed to maintain social distance. This week, Anthony Fauci admitted in an interview that his continuing to wear a mask after being vaccinated was for optics and not out of scientific or medical necessity. In other words, it was all just theater. When specifically asked by Sen. Paul in March, “If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater?” Fauci replied, “No, it’s not.” Democrat cheerleaders in major media pounced on the new guidance, viewing it as a threat to Democrats’ continued authoritarian control over Americans. PBS’ Yamiche Alcindor argued with White House press secretary Jen Psaki that the CDC is wrong and alleged some liberals believed that removing the mask mandate could be dangerous and somehow racist.
Also this week, the CDC admitted that calculations used to compile COVID death rates were improperly inflated due to hospitals counting COVID deaths to include cases where a patient died from some other cause, such as a heart attack. The unhinged attacks by liberals on President Trump and conservatives based on COVID death counts were manufactured propaganda.
On Sunday, Texas reported zero COVID deaths two months after lifting the statewide mask mandate and removing restrictions on businesses. In March, when Gov. Greg Abbott announced the new policy, he was met with outrage and promises of mass death from the virus. Joe Biden accused those favoring the new policies of “Neanderthal thinking.” Just like Florida, Georgia and every other state to end COVID restrictions, the liberal prophecies of doom never occurred.
The Great Coronavirus Panic of 2020 is increasingly being revealed to have been the greatest partisan political scam in history.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
