The below analysis makes me sad.

Its writers are insightful, there are serious questions to be figured out and not all decisions were the best ones. E.g. the New York oriented media has been completely shrill and has not taken into account the fact that most of America is not New England. Every time I read an article about how crazy people are for not locking down, I check their location and it's always New York. So I understand where they are coming from, but North Dakota ain't New York!

But instead of using that insight to actually move the discussion forward ultimately the article only covers half the story, leaves out facts that might go against the aspirational headline and concludes in a party political broadcast that is complete whataboutery. They even have the balls to say they also stated that the death rate would be much higher but it is everyone else's fault.
American journalism is so shit :(

Tucker Carlson: There's no evidence coronavirus lockdowns saved lives. Mass quarantines may have killed people
By Tucker Carlson

It has now been 63 days -- we're keeping track -- since California became the first American state to issue a so-called shelter-in-place order for all citizens.

Governor Gavin Newsom's order was the beginning of an unprecedented coronavirus mass quarantine that has changed this country forever. In many ways, the United States is hard to recognize compared to just two months ago. Two months from now, it will be more different still.

DEMS MAKE BIG PUSH TO AID ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AMID CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

In fact, it may be years before we fully understand the effects of what our leaders have done in response to the Wuhan coronavirus. There are certain to be battles over how to interpret this moment many years from now. It's possible your children will hear only one version of the story. Uncomfortable facts by that point may have been scrubbed from social media platforms as disinformation.

So, while we can, we'd like to get on tape, for the record, some of what actually happened here.

The first thing to remember is that our leaders didn't simply revoke the country's constitutional rights one day from a cold start. They laid the groundwork first. They softened opposition by sowing fear.

On March 14, to name one among countless possible examples, a former Obama administration health official called Andy Slavitt predicted that just nine days from now, America's largest cities and hospitals would be "overrun with cases."

Now, Slavitt is not an epidemiologist. In fact, he is a former McKinsey consultant. But countless other self-described experts on television backed him up. A huge number of Americans, they told us, would get infected with the coronavirus, and a huge number would die and die in the ugliest most desperate way -- gasping for breath with tubes shoved down their throats.

Now at the time, the World Health Organization suggested that a million Americans would die this way. The WHO estimated a case fatality rate of 3.4 percent. It's horrifying. It scared the hell out of the country. It scared the hell out of us. I think we repeated those numbers to you on this show.

But they were totally wrong. We now know, thanks to widespread blood testing, that the virus isn't that deadly. An enormous percentage of coronavirus infections produce mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. They're asymptomatic. The death toll is a tiny fraction of what we were told it would be.

Cuomo's lockdown, like most in this country was modeled on the <a href="https://www.foxnews.com/category/world/world-regions/china" target="_blank">Chinese government</a>'s quarantine, their response to the Wuhan coronavirus -- which is odd if you think about it. Who decided that following the example of the country responsible for unleashing the pandemic was somehow good public health?

One study in Scotland estimated the real death rate could be 0.04 percent. Another in Miami Dade, Florida suggested 0.18 percent. The one in Los Angeles 0.06 percent. In fact, the highest figure we've been able to find from a credible blood test study comes from Spain, and it produced a death rate of just over 1 percent, and that's still far below what they told us it would be.

At the time, ambitious politicians understood instinctively that Americans were really scared, and some did their best to heighten that fear. Here's New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo telling his daily television audience that tens of thousands of Americans would die unless the Trump administration sent more ventilators.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: FEMA says we're sending 400 ventilators. Really? What am I going to -- what am I going to do with 400 ventilators when I need 30,000? You pick the 26,000 people who are going to die because you only sent 400 ventilators.

This is why it pays to use a little restraint in your public statements because, as it turned out, New York had more than enough ventilators. Too many ventilators, really; some were never even used. But Cuomo didn't dwell on that. He blew right past it and spent most of the subsequent weeks discussing the vital importance of obeying his quarantine.

Cuomo's lockdown, like most in this country was modeled on the Chinese government's quarantine, their response to the Wuhan coronavirus -- which is odd if you think about it. Who decided that following the example of the country responsible for unleashing the pandemic was somehow good public health?

Well, they all thought that. Virtually, all of our leaders agreed the Chinese course was the only course. Dr. Anthony Fauci came on Fox Business to explain that actually, the Chinese government could be trusted.

David Asman, Fox Business' "Bulls & Bears" host: China has been known to fiddle with their stats before. Do you trust what they are telling us about this illness?

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: From what I can see right now, they really are being much, much more transparent than what happened with SARS, where they really kept back information for a while. It was embarrassing to them.

They're really transparent now. They've put the sequence of the virus up on the public database right away. So, in that respect, they've been transparent.

Yes, because when you think of the Chinese Communist Party, transparent is the first word that comes to mind.

Even then, when Fauci said that, there were some informed and independent- minded Americans who had real questions about the wisdom of following the Chinese model. But over time, their views began to disappear from Twitter and YouTube and Facebook.

In their place, the media presented hardened political activists, people like Zeke Emanuel, and allowed them to pose as experts on virus mitigation.

Zeke Emanuel, Vice Provost for Global Initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania: Realistically, COVID-19 will be here for the next 18 months or more. We will not be able to return to normalcy until we find a vaccine or effective medications. Is all of that economic pain worth trying to stop COVID-19? The truth is, we have no choice.

"The truth is, we have no choice." Get a pen and write down that sentence for future reference. The next time you hear someone say it, run. "The truth is, we have no choice." When you hear that, you know, things are about to get much worse.

In fact, we always have a choice. A handful of political leaders made that choice. They decided to try a different approach, and then immediately -- and in unison -- they were denounced as enemies of the state.

When Georgia began to reopen some of its businesses in late April, The Atlantic magazine described that plan as "Georgia's experiment in human sacrifice." In the words of The Washington Post, Jeff Bezos's personal newspaper, "Georgia leads the race to become America's number one death destination." As if Jack Kevorkian had become the governor of Georgia.

And that was just in print. On television, the geniuses decided that relaxing the lockdowns would be far worse for Georgia than Sherman's March to the Sea.

Stacey Abrams, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate: This makes no sense and it doesn't improve our economy. It simply puts more Georgians at risk.

Chris Hayes, MSNBC host: If that sounds insane to you, you're not alone.

Mayors in Georgia are describing the governor's decision as reckless, dangerous and illogical.

Chris Cuomo, CNN anchor: Georgia may be doing too much too soon.

Don Lemon, CNN anchor: No matter what anybody tells you, no matter how many hopeful signs there may be, it's far too early to let down our guard. It's far too early to go back to the lives that we were living just last month.

And if that shocks you, it should.

Someday, unfortunately, that tape will be scrubbed off the internet. That's a shame.

Georgia is fine as it turns out. That was Don Lemon telling you Georgia is an incredibly dangerous place, and it had an effect.

"The truth is, we have no choice." Get a pen and write down that sentence for future reference. The next time you hear someone say it, run.

Imagine if you saw Don Lemon say that while being forced to watch CNN while waiting for a flight at an airport. Maybe you're headed to Atlanta. You'd be rattled by that -- of course, you would be. And rattling you was exactly the point of saying it. Stop thinking, obey. That was the message and was amplified day after day after day by outlets like CNN.

Watch this CNN anchor a month ago remind his audience that staying locked indoors was their moral duty.

Chris Cuomo: The only thing that has checked this contagion is our collective conscience to stay home together as ever, as one.

We know that is our true power. The question is, when will it really be put to this problem?

The one thing you never saw from these people -- these journalists -- was a straightforward discussion about whether or not lockdowns actually work. You'd think that would be the first thing they would talk about, but they didn't want to.

Hundreds of millions of people ordered to stay home, only go outside for essential reasons. Does forcing people to live like that really contain a virus? There are a lot of reasons actually to believe that it does not contain a virus. For example, forcing people into close quarters all day obviously increases the odds of infecting family members. The biggest studies on that have shown it.

Did you hear that? Ending the lockdowns slowed the spread of the virus or was associated with a slower spread. Amazing. For some reason, that study has not received a lot of attention. Maybe you shouldn't be surprised by that.

Closing every business except grocery stores forces a lot of people into a small space. Is that a good idea? There are a lot of potential problems. We don't know all of the answers; someday we'll have a better understanding of the science behind quarantines. We should have had it before we imposed them.

But for now, here's what you need to know and what they're not going to tell you. There is, as of now, precisely no evidence that the lockdowns in America saved lives anywhere. In fact, it's possible that mass quarantines killed people.

Researchers at JPMorgan compared the coronavirus infection rates of all 50 U.S. states and many European countries before and after the mass quarantines. Overall, ending the lockdowns was associated with a slower spread of the virus.

Did you hear that? Ending the lockdowns slowed the spread of the virus or was associated with a slower spread. Amazing. For some reason, that study has not received a lot of attention. Maybe you shouldn't be surprised by that.

More than any other governor maybe in the country, Kristi Noem from South Dakota refused to lock her state down. She refused to use the coronavirus pandemic to enhance her personal powers. For that, she was vilified in the national press. Some outlets treated her like a mass murderer.

On April 13, The Washington Post wrote this: "South Dakota's Governor resisted ordering people to stay home. Now it has one of the nation's largest coronavirus hotspots."

Meanwhile, the obedient states --states that imprisoned their entire population -- got a round of applause from the entire American media the very next day. The New York Times lauded California, by contrast, this way: "California set the tone on coronavirus shutdowns. What's its next move?"

And the message of all of this, of course, is unmistakable. You saw it at the time. California was saving its people. Rightwing, old South Dakota was plunging its state into calamity.

So, that was more than five weeks ago. How did things turn out in the end? Have you seen a follow-up story on it? Probably not.

Here the facts. As of now, about 5 per 100,000 people in South Dakota have died of the coronavirus. In California, the death toll is 8.4 per hundred thousand. That's 64 percent higher. That doesn't prove lockdowns kill people. It does suggest it doesn't work very well.

And yet even now, millions of Americans are living, suffocating under continued lockdown. California's economy has been crushed, particularly for middle-class people. They're barred from going to work. They can't go on the dry sand in Los Angeles per their lunatic mayor.

Now, you can laugh about this because it's stupid. But for millions of healthy people at virtually no risk from dying of this virus, the lockdowns have been a life-changing disaster.

Rep. Brian Mast: Memorial Day and my fallen friends show us how to thrive after coronavirus
RNC Chair McDaniel: Democrats and voter fraud in Nevada — here's how it will impact you
Early in the pandemic, the president of the United States made that point. Any intemperate response to this pandemic, even if it mitigates the virus itself, could wind up killing a lot of people.

President Donald Trump: People get tremendous anxiety and depression and you have suicides over things like this when you have terrible economies, you have death.

In other words, bad economies don't just make people poor, they kill people. That's obviously true. And yet The Associated Press, the most trusted, branded news raced in with a correction. "President Donald Trump is making a baseless claim of surging suicides if the U.S. economy remains mostly shut through the spread of the coronavirus, " The AP wrote.

Then they added this: "Historically, in a crisis, suicides tend to diminish as society pulls together in a common purpose."

As if the government locking you in your own home for two months, taking away your job, depriving you of human contact was comparable to fighting the Second World War, a common purpose. That's the opposite of what it was. The people who made these orders went to their weekend houses in Aspen. They ignored the terms of their own orders. They got their hair done.

A month later, The Washington Post wrote this: "The coronavirus pandemic is pushing America into a mental health crisis." Well of course, it is. Calls to the Federal Emotional Distress Hotline have gone up 1,000 percent.

Across American counties -- the heart of the opioid epidemic -- report a surge in overdoses compared to last year. By the way, in the State of New Jersey, for example, the governor stopped AA Meetings. You were not allowed to go to your AA group, but he kept liquor stores open.

Okay, how do you think that worked out? Not well. But don't worry, The AP reassures us, President Trump was making a baseless claim that this might affect people's mental health.

And there's more, we could go on for days. But just this: In March, the CDC warned that coronavirus might survive for a prolonged period on exposed services. Remember that? Gloves in the elevator?

Millions of Americans were panicked by this. Why wouldn't they be? They wiped down everything they touched. They refused to order takeout food. They put their groceries in mail-in days' long quarantine before opening them -- maybe you did that. We're not mocking you for it. They told you to.

Now, the CDC has new guidance. Coronavirus " does not spread easily on surfaces." Okay.

So, where are we now? What's the result of this? Well, it's not totally clear. But here's what we know.

For 50 years, America has steadily shipped its manufacturing jobs abroad. Now, those jobs which provided middle-class stability to millions were the core of the middle class were replaced often by low wage, no benefit jobs. People serving an ever-shrinking number of very rich people in finance, a lot of them getting checks from the government -- that's the new economy.

That new economy has been destroyed by these lockdowns. In the age of coronavirus, tens of millions of service jobs have gone away. Many will not return.

So only manufacturing is left, but here's the catch: The manufacturers are all in China now. In other words, China won.

So, no matter what they tell you in coming years, that's what happened. That's what actually happened. Remember it.

Adapted from Tucker Carlson's monologue from "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on May 21, 2020


So here we go. This is an evil grand plan orchestrated by China with the active support of the media and the Democrats.

The only points where I agree with Tucker are :

- Media tend to push one opinion and become propaganda machines rather than information outlets. But that applies to his own efforts and the channel who broadcasts him as much as to the media he hates.

- debate tends to be suppressed as a consequence of the above. Again, same applies to his way of expressing his views and to Fox News.

- there was a lot of ignorance around the Coronavirus and measures which were taken were taken with decision makers still in the dark. That is not their fault though and they had to go by the advice they were getting. In that case they used a century old proven approach they assessed as being the least risky course until we knew more about the bug. Important to remember that the death factor is still an unknown today... had it been 10 and the story Tucker would writing would be very different.

- constitutional rights have to be protected. But that coming from the Trump's camp is rich...


Now, food for thoughts. Look at the stats in Spain, Italy or France and try proving that a lockdown did not have any positive effect on infections and deaths... at least, this avoided a situation where most of the severely sick would not have had access to ICU over long months. In France, serious cases are well below 2,000 after peaking above 7,000.

Not sure you purposely play stupid or whether you are actually plain stupid.


Do you even understand the notion of risk versus certainty and once you grasp that, the notion of increased risk?

Remind me a Chinese guy I met, working for an airline, and who ordered the dispatch of a severely damaged aircraft so that it could be repaired at lower cost back at his main base. When I told him he took inconsiderate risks in doing this, he responded "there was no risk! Proof is: the aircraft landed safely"....

Reminds me the Tucker Carlson reasoning above : reopening is the best way to slow the virus spread. Look at the stats, they show lower infection rates. Except that I suspect Carlson doesn't believe his own shit but gets paid big money by Trump to manipulate dumb asses....

Over his two terms, the economy saw a reduction of inflation from 12.5% to 4.4% and an average real GDP annual growth of 3.4%.

When Reagan left office in 1989, he held an approval rating of 68%, matching those of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and later Bill Clinton, as the highest ratings for departing presidents in the modern era


On that alone he would rate highly.


Was you around when he couldnt even remember the names of people-"Princess David". Also do you want to tell us about the budget deficit, or does that not count.

The handful of remaining Republicans with multiple brain cells to rub together - the ones that are Republican because they are selfish rather than because they are stupid - need to have a bit of a think about the direction that Fox Entertainment News is leading their party.


The numbers aren't exactly good for the Democrat or Hillary voting tranches


Surely they are. Hilary voters are the least likely to believe the conspiracy theory. Trump voters, Republicans and Fox News viewers the most.

Trump is going to start a war. He is running out of ideas and the hail Mary play is going to happen. He can't run on the economy, Covid-19 performance or the Wall. It's got to be war.

He's not got much time to do it, it's the middle of a pandemic, and there's no good candidate.
That's just not going to happen.

And what makes you think a war would improve his polling.

He’s also tied himself in with the whole “I said Iraq was a bad idea, I always said it” bit. Any war he would get into would have to be quick in and out, and that just isn’t feasible in this day and age.

Hypocrisy doesn't scare Trump too much really, wont shake his faithful they enjoy it.
We'll see if it's chipped away at the moderates, polls are generally showing it has.

But there's only one poll that matters.

Awwwwwwwwww isn't that cute, WT believed it when Donnie said he takes it every day.


He also seems to think that the studies show anyone who takes it will die. Despite none of them saying anything even remotely like that.

That's just not going to happen.

And what makes you think a war would improve his polling.

He’s also tied himself in with the whole “I said Iraq was a bad idea, I always said it” bit. Any war he would get into would have to be quick in and out, and that just isn’t feasible in this day and age.

Grenada ?

I don't see his Maccas medal. Or his Victoria Cross.

Someone is going to get fired.

Probably one of the very best people that he hired.

Not sure you purposely play stupid or whether you are actually plain stupid.


Do you even understand the notion of risk versus certainty and once you grasp that, the notion of increased risk?

Remind me a Chinese guy I met, working for an airline, and who ordered the dispatch of a severely damaged aircraft so that it could be repaired at lower cost back at his main base. When I told him he took inconsiderate risks in doing this, he responded "there was no risk! Proof is: the aircraft landed safely"....

Reminds me the Tucker Carlson reasoning above : reopening is the best way to slow the virus spread. Look at the stats, they show lo wer infection rates. Except that I suspect Carlson doesn't believe his own shit but gets paid big money by Trump to manipulate dumb asses....



:lol:

How fragile we can be, at times...


You keep up with that self-diagnoses, WT, you're bound to strike it lucky sooner or later.

Corona virus have taken its toll on the bored lbtards. They are a sickly flock if resistant chitpers, with none of the venom of the pre-Obamagate era.

Poor sods. The Don is grinding them down.

They just need to keep asking him about this and like in A Few Good Men he will eventually burst and shout out

The tub of shit is laying the groundwork earlier this time for his inevitable cries of "voter fraud" should he lose, as he did on the eve of the election in 2016.

At this point it's not difficult to imagine a scenario where he simply refuses to leave the white house. Republicans will be on Fox calling for 'investigations'.

If his support weren't so dull they too would vote against him just for the comedic value of seeing him have to pack his shit and GTFO.

He would definitely lose Tucker if he did that.

Sen would be faced with which parent he would live with after the divorce...

You're right - there was nothing that could result in charges. There was only Russian interference and the appearance of collusion.


Meanwhile. Obamagate. Dispensing with even the need for an appearance of wrongdoing....

What exactly was the big problem in October 2014 that a president should have canceled a golf appointment?

US deaths have surpassed the next three countries combined - UK, Italy and Spain.

Trump's response to the crisis has been "fine".

Apparently.

And anyway, if it's not fine it's the fault of the governors, not Trump.

Obviously.
