Media response to same comment made by Trump & Biden

As ever the media left out the context of the conversation with Bob Woodward which was that Trump “didn’t want people to panic” when it deliberately edited the comment to say that he “downplayed the virus.”

Trump said virtually the same thing in an April 2020 press conference at the White House. Why no outrage then? Ahh, because there is an election that needs narratives to switch away from riots, looting and civil unrest to a virus where deaths have been largely caused in Democrat run cities and states.

How strange that Joe Biden said in February, “it’s not a time to panic about coronavirus.

Orange man bad. Whatever Trump says is bad. Total silence about Biden. Who knew?

Perhaps the most telling display of “minimal panic” over coronavirus has been the behaviour of so many Democrat mayors, governors and members of congress who have broken so many of the laws they proclaim is so dangerous for the people who elected them. Surely if there was a need to panic, these politicians wouldn’t be sneaking off to get their hair blown out or reopen gyms inside public buildings while the rest are closed to the public.

CNN has been so worried about coronavirus that it made a point to admonish Trump for the lack of diversity on the response team.

Make no mistake, this will be 60 straight days of mudslinging. This type of muck will be churned out by the mainstream media non-stop in order to prevent Trump from reelection. Last week it was comments from anonymous sources that Trump had disparaged fallen soldiers as “suckers and losers.” Even John Bolton, who hates Trump, denied he ever said it and he was there. Had Trump mentioned it, what an explosive chapter for his book.

Who knew that 86% of people polled think that the media is divisive. The worst numbers in living memory.

Brian Stelter gives priceless reply to CNN’s lies

A Minnesota based caller phoned in to whack Brian Stelter and CNN for being the biggest hypocrites in media. He said,

You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated that there have been 300 different distortions or disinformation that we get out of CNN…If you add all that up to 46 months it comes out to 300,000 plus distortions of truth…This is how low you’ll go. You go out and lie, defamed a child, then you had to settle out of court to pay this child for distorting information about him. If anything, that’s happening at CNN and anybody that buys your book, it’s really just one of the things dividing our nation.”

Stelter’s reply is priceless. Video here.

CNN’s Don Lemon takes Trump’s Mental Acuity test and fails

CNN’s Don Lemon discussed Trump’s mental acuity test and fails part of it. Interesting that he set out to mock the president and can’t tell a rhino from a hippo.

Follow the logic of paid actors at Trump’s Tulsa rally

No photo description available.

The left is now pushing the idea that Trump is paying for people of colour to attend his rallies. This was an advert on Craigslist which has since been taken down. A similar job posting like it was uploaded ahead of a Phoenix rally in 2017. It was shown to be fake.

Even if one desperately wanted to assume it was legitimate, let’s question the logic of why he’d need to do it at all? Also if minorities hated Trump so much no amount of minimum wage incentive would get them to join a rally that would hurt them over the next four years.

One million people have registered to attend the Tulsa, Oklahoma Trump rally. Tulsa, by the way, has a population of only 400,000. How many minority actors/actresses would be required, assuming Trump was so desperate to show he had their support in order for them not to be diluted in the sea of presumably white MAGA crowd??

As we reported last week, Rasmussen Reports latest poll revealed that 41% of blacks and 43% of other minorities support Trump. These are record highs. This is up from 34% in December 2019. And a 5-fold jump on 2016. Why would he need to pay for people to show up?

Perhaps the more sensible conclusion might be to hire a bunch of paid white thugs to pick on paid minority Trump actors to create a narrative that they the MAGA supporters are all unhinged racists to swing the vote the other way? CNN camera crews will mysteriously be on the spot as it unfolds.

Better still, just give Jussie Smollett a call. He knows how to arrange hate hoaxes. Beware of Nigerian body builders in white hoods, MAGA hats and bleach loitering around the Subway sandwich joint.

Seattle Mayor says CHAZ could be a “summer of love”

Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan (Democrat) has fired back at criticism over the Capitol Hill Autonomous Hill (CHAZ) secessionist movement defending the armed Antifa types who have driven off police and set up checkpoints, by saying it is “more like a block party atmosphere” than an “armed takeover.

Even CNN’s Chris Cuomo questions the occupation of a municipal building and destroying a police station.

What an embarrassment. Durkan said she was not sure how long CHAZ would stay but it could be a “summer of love.”

CHAZ has released a charter with specific demands. Will Mayor Durkan cave into them?

1. Abolition of the Seattle Police Department and attached court system. We do not request reform, we demand abolition. This means 100 per cent of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police. At an equal level of priority, we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ICE [Immigration enforcement] in the city of Seattle.

2. In the transitionary period between now and the dismantlement of the Seattle Police Department, we demand that the use of armed force be banned entirely.

3. We demand the people of Seattle seek out and proudly support Black-owned businesses. Your money is our power and sustainability.

4. We demand that not the city government, nor the state government, but that the federal government launch a full-scale investigation into past and current cases of police brutality in Seattle and Washington.

5. Reparations for victims of police brutality, in a form, to be determined.

6. The retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community.

7. Replace the current criminal justice system the creation of restorative/transformative accountability programs as a replacement for imprisonment.

One doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist to work out the tribal identity politics being demanded.

Perhaps Durkan might want to speak to Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant who said “CHAZ” should remain in community control permanently. Sawant openly declares on her Twitter handle that she is:

‘Seattle City Councilmember ~ Socialist ~ Member of Socialist Alternative and AFT 1789 ~ kshama.sawant@seattle.gov’

Sawant tweeted, “Our movement needs to urgently ensure East Precinct is not handed back to police, but is turned over permanently into community control…My office is bringing legislation to convert East Precinct into a community center for restorative justice.”

That summer of love may turn into a winter of discontent for the majority of residents in Seattle, especially if the heavily armed warlord, Raz Simone is out there dispensing rough justice on those that fall out of line.

Kayleigh McEnany helps deranged WH press corps to do their jobs properly

Trump’s new Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is doing such a great job with the White House press corps. In this video clip she turns their lack of journalistic integrity back on them by providing a list of questions to pique their curiosity about #Obamagate instead of letting them indulge in their favorite pastime of creating false narratives.

Trust CNN to put Greta on a panel of coronavirus experts

Close down our universities immediately. Climate activist Greta Thunberg proves that a 17yo truant can be an expert on pandemics too. Who needs a tertiary education? At least the only thing we learnt is that CNN has even less credibility.

Why are 28,000 US COVID19 deaths overreported?

We are curious as to why the US Government’s official Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) records only 37,308 COVID19 deaths as of April 25th-end when Johns Hopkins University (JHU) reports over 65,000…that is a c.75% difference.

CDC explained its methodology as follows,

The provisional counts for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) deaths are based on a current flow of mortality data in the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS). National provisional counts include deaths occurring within the 50 states and the District of Columbia that have been received and coded as of the date specified. It is important to note that it can take several weeks for death records to be submitted to National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), processed, coded, and tabulated.

In short, the data recorded is that of the official cause of death plugged into the national database.

JHU reports its data gathering as follows:

Johns Hopkins experts are aggregating data from multiple credible sources to track the spread of COVID-19…

…The tracking map’s data powers a number of external research and visualization efforts by prominent media organizations such as CNN, The New York Times, The Guardian, and the Associated Press [all media organizations with an axe to grind]. But its data is also used by smaller organizations, such as Blauer’s data team at the Centers for Civic Impact (CCI).”

Interestingly, the CCI, which was newly instituted at JHU, tried to explain the discrepancy.

Obtaining accurate and timely data about the spread of the virus has become an unexpected challenge in the United States. While the federal government has traditionally been the most authoritative source for national public health data, this has proved not to be the case with the coronavirus pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the nation’s official source for public health surveillance data, has not kept its site updated with information available through state and local health departments. 

Even if we accept that the official CDC data is delayed by up to two weeks, we are surprised the figures are out by a factor of 28,000 deaths or almost 75%. Will the data JHU gleans from state and local health departments differ to those eventually supplied to the NCHS for publishing by the CDC?

Perhaps we should be a little suspicious of CCI’s noble quest for data when it published a piece which expressed the following statement:

Aggregating information from dozens of sources is challenging and time-consuming, so volunteer projects have stepped in to fill the gap. One major backbone of this effort has been the COVID Tracking Project. Started by two journalists from The Atlantic and a data scientist from Related Sciences, the COVID Tracking Project scrapes data directly from state public health websites so that its numbers are constantly current.”

Volunteers? Journalists from The Atlantic, an unhinged left-leaning newspaper which makes Pravda look like the Volkischer Beobachter? Why is a reputable university relying on such sources? Who validates and peer reviews that data to ensure accuracy? Are the volunteers activists? All valid questions.

To be honest, as a data driven group, FNF Media does not see data collection across 50 states as that time consuming. Much of it is in CSV format making it easy to download.

At the conclusion of the pandemic the numbers should show little variance. We watch with interest to see the final audit. Perhaps we can start with JHU’s current 65,000 number and wait another 2 weeks for CDC to publish the official figures and see just how (in)accurate the numbers are.

No wonder the media has a field day on the data which paints a scarier picture. They might source JHU but not disclose the volunteers that compile it.

It’s just hard to reconcile how a university which has $6 billion in annual revenues can’t divert resources to conduct the research in house?!
