    Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly declared that a factory in Erie, Pennsylvania, was closing down — triggering panic among workers and forcing management to send a company-wide email reassuring employees that their jobs were not currently in danger. Erie News Now reported Tuesday that Biden’s comments earlier in the week about a local locomotive factory shutting down caused the confusion:

    A so-called big revelation in Bob Woodward's book on Trump was his admission that he tried to head off a panic reaction to the Coronavirus. Democrats across the board say this was wrong and costed lives. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (NY) attributed his state's extraordinarily high COVID death rate to "Trump's efforts to maintain calm. Sometimes panic is the appropriate response to a crisis. If I hadn't panicked and demanded all the extra ventilators that I thought would be needed, would there have been any chance that Trump would have delivered them? When it turned out we didn't need these extra...
  • The Data Clearly Shows That the Dem Panic Not the Pandemic Caused the Excess Covid-19 Death We’ve Suffered: Part 1, the Official Stats

    Like pretty much everything about the press coverage of COVID-19, the accusations that President Trump is responsible for killing Americans by playing down the threat is completely surreal.We know for a fact that the panic is responsible for the official coronavirus death toll, not the virus itself. So any downplaying Trump may have done could have only saved lives, even if you have faith in the official stats. Moreover, a researcher has looked at the real excess burden of death from all causes not just this year but every one since World War 2 across the globe. And the data...

    After watching political narrative engineering for years, this attempt was predictable. The reason why CTH maintains a “pinned thread” on the White House COVID-19 response from January and February of 2020 is specifically because we knew the narrative engineers would attempt to weaponize the politics of the virus later in the election year. We knew the narrative engineers would flip the script. Today they did exactly that. After watching political narrative engineering for years, this attempt was predictable.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden attacked President Donald Trump on Wednesday for downplaying the threat of the coronavirus earlier this year to discourage panic — but he himself told Americans not to panic about the disease. Sean Hannity aired archival footage on Fox News of Biden speaking to supporters in Sumter, South Carolina, on Feb. 28 — one day before Biden won the state’s primary, securing his first victory in three presidential campaigns and creating a path to the nomination

    Gallup released the results of a new poll on K-12 education last week, reflecting the post-COVID-19 landscape. Entitled “K-12 Parents’ Satisfaction with Child’s Education Slips,” the summary buried the lede in the bullet points: “[P]ercentage of K-12 parents homeschooling this year has doubled, to 10%.” You read that right. Gallup’s data suggests that, since last year, the home-school community in America has doubled in size. One in every 10 families with school-age children is now home-schooling. The poll was careful not to conflate remote public-school instruction with true home-schooling. “Will your oldest child attend public, private, parochial, charter school —...

    For months now, the Democrat-controlled mainstream media has cheered on the violence that followed George Floyd’s fentanyl overdose while in police custody. In Democrat-run cities across American, mayors sympathized with the mobs on the streets. They would not act to stem the violence that has destroyed billions of dollars in public and private property and claimed several lives. Higher up the political chain, Democrat politicians refused to condemn the violence, instead blaming federal officers and (of course) President Trump. Suddenly, though, there’s a change in the air. With Trump getting a bounce following the Democrat convention and getting an...

    As you send your kids off to college, you might be apprehensive about them getting killed. But if you follow the data instead of the media, you will understand that they are exponentially more likely to die from a car accident or from getting convinced to drink or shoot up drugs than from COVID-19. ... What is shocking and laughable, yet tragic at the same time, is the lack of recognition that not wearing masks (even assuming they work) is the least of the “high-risk” behavior on campuses. ... Drugs, alcohol, and deadly car crashes, unfortunately, are not limited by...

    We haven’t even reached the DNC convention in Milwaukee next week and the election season is already over. Former Vice President and (presumptive) Democratic Party Nominee Joe Biden picked Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. She is the first non-white woman to be so ‘honored.’ But that’s not a pick designed to win an election, that’s a white flag of surrender. Harris ran one of the worst primary campaigns in recent memory, trying desperately to be the ‘black’ Hillary Clinton. She crashed out in spectacular fashion. If there is a better example of being tone-deaf to what voters want...

    It is unlikely that pundits, politicians, and the general public have ever been so obsessed with numbers as they are right now. I speak, of course, of the numbers surrounding deaths and illnesses attributed to COVID-19. For months now, every new day has brought new headlines about total COVID-19 infections, total deaths, and estimates put out by models claiming to predict how many deaths will soon occur. These numbers have become the focal points of many politicians' careers. This is especially true for state governors and other politicians in executive positions who now in this time of "emergency" essentially rule...

In the process, his personal enthusiasm for the wonder of science became evident to all. He also understood that science could be hijacked and that the highest standards of evidence were required when fantastic claims were being made.

    Days after NBC on-air contributor Dr. Joseph Fair revealed he was lying about his infection with the Wuhan coronavirus, which the network extensively covered, NBC has refused to answer several Federalist inquiries about whether it has disciplined the virologist. Last week, Fair relayed the results of a negative antibody test on Twitter after falling ill two months ago with what he claimed was COVID-19 despite never testing positive for the virus. ... The network gave Fair’s illness generous coverage as a virus-stricken contributor even after Fair tested negative for the virus multiple times but claimed it was the “worst” he’d...

    The headlines are filled with dire warnings of a “second wave” and trigger-happy Governors are rolling back regulations to try to stem the tide of new cases. But, is any of it actually true and should we all be worried? No, it’s not a second wave. The COVID-19 virus is on its final legs, and while I have filled this post with graphs to prove everything I just said, this is really the only graph you need to see, it’s the CDC’s data, over time, of deaths from COVID-19 here in the U.S., and the trend line is unmistakable:

    CNN is launching a "new and expanded race team" in an effort to "ensure race coverage is a permanent part of our journalism," according to a statement from network president Jeff Zucker, who is best known for signing Donald Trump to host The Apprentice on NBC. CNN viewers might be surprised to learn that race was not already a "permanent part" of the network's opinion-based reporting, or that it was possible, in Zucker's words, to cover race "with more focus and force" than it already does. Zucker is following in the footsteps of many corporate leaders who feel pressured to...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) – With the rising number of coronavirus cases across Alabama every day, Gov. Kay Ivey has put into effect a statewide face mask requirement. During a press conference Wednesday, Ivey said that between June 29 and July 13, the total number of COVID-19 cases statewide rose by 50% and that in the first nine days of July, the state averaged 1,000 new cases per day. As of Wednesday, there have been 58,225 COVID-19 cases reported across Alabama since late March. “Despite our best efforts, we are seeing increased cases every day are still occurring and we’re almost...

    Friends, are you suffering from anxiety caused by the major problem of today: climate change? Well, your troubles are now over as the climate will stop changing thanks to Burger King's concern over amount of methane gas its cows emit. (There are cruder terms using simpler words for this process, but hey, we're wholesome.) Discovering that merely adding a bit of lemongrass to their diet reduces cow methane gas production, concerned Burger King executives altered the herds' diet, introducing their Reduced Methane Emissions Beef Whopper in select restaurants yesterday. This special Whopper will soon be available at a Burger King...

    Here are five steps that the got the coronavirus panic started and why it continues to this day. 1. Wildly exaggerate the deadliness of the disease. Most perceptions of the coronavirus were formed when the World Health Organization announced that the fatality rate was above 3%. 2. Overcount deaths and undercount cases. These perceptions have continued because of the way cases and deaths are counted. On the one hand, the number of “confirmed” cases is a fraction of the actual number of people who’ve contracted the disease. 3. Ignore positive trends. Amid all the agonizing over the rise in new...

    Arlo Kinsey was working behind the carryout counter at RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack in Mission last week when a middle-aged man dressed in a red Make America Great Again hat — and no mask — walked through the door. “I asked him if he could wear a mask, since it’s what Gov. Kelly told us to do,” said Kinsey, 18, who was working shifts at the barbecue joint this summer before heading off to college. He had dealt with a handful of customers who refused to wear masks inside the restaurant despite the statewide mandate — but none like this, he...
