I’m going to keep pounding away at the fact our public health authorities were wrong about everything regarding COVID. I’m doing so because they assumed an awful lot of power over our lives and ultimately proved to be destructive. This should never be allowed to happen again.
They were wrong about masks. A review of 78 studies shows there is no evidence masks are effective in a pandemic. There is also no evidence removal of mask mandates caused COVID deaths to go up. In fact, in Kansas, counties with a mask mandate experienced significantly higher case fatality rates than counties that did not. So, masks not only did not help, they hurt. But what did the public health industrial complex do? Suppress the truth, that’s what.
Public health authorities were wrong about the lab leak theory. It remains a perfectly good theory, now found credible by the Energy Department and the FBI. But what did Fauci do? Government records show he dismissed the lab leak hypothesis as a “conspiracy theory”, gave government grants to proponents of the theory to shut them up, and commissioned a report to publicly discredit the theory. Fauci rules? I don’t think so. CNN and Facebook helped Fauci cover up the truth.
Public health officials were wrong about ivermectin. The aggregate of studies continues to weigh in favor of ivermectin’s efficacy in COVID cases on mortality and lesser questions. But public officials deliberately trashed ivermectin – calling it just a ‘horse de-wormer’ – and conspired to keep it from being prescribed. A group of doctors is now suing to hold officials at the FDA and HHS accountable for their actions. I hope all the hospitals that threw doctors out for prescribing or advocating for the use of ivermectin get sued, too.
The public health industrial complex was also wrong about the impact of COVID on kids, falsely claiming it was a leading cause of death among young people. Accidents, drug overdoses, and drownings were far more prevalent. The truth is only one out of a 100,000 kids and teens died from COVID. The numbers were never high enough to justify school lockdowns and the self-inflicted ravages of learning loss from closing school doors are now common knowledge.
Public health authorities were also wrong about natural immunity, falsely claiming COVID vaccine immunity was better, as late as in March in congressional testimony. Fauci is in this story, too, meeting in secret with other U.S. health officials, to get their story straight about how natural immunity was no good despite the scientific evidence showing it was. Their effort was ultimately futile, though, because evidence keeps piling up that natural immunity is better.
Evidence is also piling up the vaccines were not very effective. A recent study shows the immune system gets tired and doesn’t produce much of a response after a third dose. Another study shows the effect of bivalent boosters wears off after two months. These studies are in addition to the pile of other studies I mentioned in previous commentaries casting doubt on COVID vaccine efficacy.
So many lies, so many cover-ups. We deserve better from our government officials and politicians. They’re supposed to be working for us, not lording over us. I, for one, will never trust them again. But the Moral of the Story is we need to put up more of a fight when public health authorities and politicians try to steal our liberty for no good reason. One of the very first things I read about pandemic legal theory is that public health authorities have to make their case in court before taking emergency measures. That never happened. They were never put to their proof under oath and cross-examination. Let’s make sure a full examination of their argument happens the next time these political animals go off the rails.
