Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo Shreds ‘Climate of Dishonesty’ About Covid in Epic Rant Against Mandates
Becker News ^ | 10/27/2021 | Kyle Becker

Florida’s Surgeon General, Joseph A. Ladapo, MD, PhD, went off on an epic rant against the “climate of dishonesty” that has surrounded the mainstream media’s Covid pandemic coverage since the very beginning.

Ladapo shred the media’s myths and misrepresentations about how the coronavirus behaves and the most prudent public health policies to limit its damage. Watch:

“You remember when people were telling you that these vaccines would stop transmission and the rates of protection were greater than 90%?” he asked. “Well, you know, guess what, here we are about 10 months afterward and we’re finding that the data is showing that some of these vaccines, the protection from infection is less than 40%.”

“And even less than that, for some of them,” he said. “As we now know, these vaccines are not preventing transmission. So sure, they reduce the likelihood of transmission, and even that is sort of questionable, depending on how far out you go. But they’re not preventing it.”

“So this idea that you know, I’ve heard some leaders say things like, we’ll create safe workplaces, by mandating these vaccines,” he continued. “Well, they’re really decoupled, because the infections can still happen, whether people were vaccinated or not. I mean, that’s very obvious, you know. And you remember these people were also telling you that all these breakthrough infections were rare. Well, they’re obviously not rare. In fact, they’re common.”

“And so and so that’s the truth,” he added. “So this idea that the vaccine mandates are needed to create safe workplaces is a complete lie. It’s continued to be repeated and you should know that it’s not at all backed up by science. In fact, the science says something that’s completely the opposite and that’s the fact.”

“Part of the reason that people are not comfortable, some people are not comfortable with these vaccines is because of the climate of dishonesty, scientific dishonesty, about the science, right?” he said. “Whether it’s natural immunity, denial of that in the face of data, or in the case of the vaccines, open, honest discussions about both effectiveness and safety. There’s been dishonesty around that.”

“The reality of how safe these vaccines are is absolutely not public,” he added. “Healthy people who’ve had adverse reactions after the vaccines, there’s been a concerted effort to prevent these types of stories, these experiences from receiving the attention that they obviously should receive.”

“It’s completely ridiculous,” he said. “Americans can sense, many Americans can sense that there’s total dishonesty about the safety of the vaccines. That’s one of the things the Governor and I are going to work on.”

This is a brilliant, scientifically valid, and provocative dissection of the state of the science and the failures of the radical left’s Covid policies to do anything significantly to stop the spread, all while doing tremendous economic and social damage to the country. So, of course, the left hates it. Surprisingly, MSNBC and Daily Kos attacked Ladapo and unsurprisingly continued to perpetuate the scientific dishonesty that he so eloquently condemned.

Oh, by the way. Florida now has the lowest Covid case rates per capita in America. Meanwhile, northern and beltway states are still fighting the recent Delta variant surge, despite vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and even vaccine passports in the case of New York City.

Florida has been the “control group” that shows you that blue states’ policies are being driven more by politics than by public health. The left’s only real response is to muster more outrage and lies to justify in a flailing attempt to justify their failed authoritarian policies. But Florida has definitively showed that you can follow the actual science and still defend Americans’ freedom and constitutional rights. No “climate of dishonesty” is going to be able to change that.

CDC hiding the number of naturally-immune to Covid-19
SHARYL ATTKISSON .com ^ | OCTOBER 26, 2021 | BY SHARYL ATTKISSON

As more Americans receive protection from natural immunity after Covid-19 infection, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has withheld the total number of infections from the public, even though it is undeniably information that belongs to the public.

For months, the CDC updated its website with information including estimates of Covid-19 infected people in the U.S.

However, prior to the Delta variant of Covid-19 spreading widely, the CDC abruptly stopped updating that information.

The last published update as of the time of this publication was May 29, almost five months ago.

At that time, CDC estimated 120.2 million people in the U.S. had been infected with Covid-19. Some scientists believe that estimate was significantly lower than the actual number. However, it still amounted to more than 1/3 of the population, which reportedly numbers approximately 330 million.

Since the Delta variant has spread widely, scientists say the number of naturally-immune is now much higher than it was on May 29. However, CDC will not tell what it is.

CDC last updated the number of previously-infected, or naturally-immune, five months ago On October 5, when I asked a CDC representative for the updated estimate, a spokesman told me that the agency intended to release that number later in the week, which would include the estimate through September, and then would likely update it monthly thereafter.

However, three weeks later, the number still hasn’t been updated, and CDC has declined to provide the reason for withholding the information.

I also filed a FOI request for the information, but CDC did not respond to or acknowledge receipt of the request.

The number of naturally-immune is relevant because a growing body of studies says natural immunity is proving as effective or far more effective than vaccine-induced immunity.

Now read CDC’s confusing B$ on this critical issue!:

CDC: Antibody (Serology) Testing for COVID-19: Information for Patients and Consumers

SARS-CoV-2 antibody (often referred to as serology) tests look for antibodies in a sample to determine if an individual has had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. COVID-19 antibody tests can help identify people who may have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have recovered from a COVID-19 infection.

At this time, researchers do not know whether the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to COVID-19; or if you are immune, how long it will last.

In people who have received a COVID-19 vaccination, antibody testing is not recommended to determine whether you are immune or protected from COVID-19.

Many antibody tests are currently in development or available for use to detect antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. However, not all antibody tests that are being marketed to the public have been evaluated and authorized by the FDA. For details on specific tests authorized by the FDA, see In Vitro Diagnostics EUAs.

The climate of dishonesty is not just with COVID. It applies in a much broader context to government in general. Polls show that people don’t trust government or politicians.

You needed a poll to tell you that? LOL!

Its the findings and sentiment from the polls that are of interest (i.e., in the form of opinions expressed by percentages of various segments of the population).

There’s always been some degree of distrust but its the sheer magnitude of that distrust now that is manifested in strikingly low numbers that is so noteworthy.

Yeah but if you’ve admittedly put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics do you really care about poll numbers....or even what Americans think?

I think you’re getting a little off track. Let’s go back to my original comment that you replied to...

The “theme”, if you will, was that there’s a broader climate of dishonesty in the country. COVID is just one aspect of a much larger problem. And my point was that people recognize the extent of that problem within our own government.

Polls can cover lots of topics, and I actually agree that Dems don’t much care what people think now that they control the voting process. But again, the widespread recognition of dishonesty was the point I was making. And it suggests that people do care (at least a little) about it.

Correct, there is absolutely nothing clean, pure or righteous about the Biden gang. Run the other way ( flee) from anything this administration tries to do or dictate. We need revival, and I believe we will have it, however, the Bible is clear, revival occurs ONLY when a nation is brought to its knees.Imagine the anger when Americans wake up to this Covid scam and toxic jabs….time is beginning to tell a horrid story about the vax.
