In case you're one of the handful of people who hasn't yet realized it, we're being bombarded by utter dishonesty in a coordinated propaganda campaign to scare us all into official compliance. Government, news media and social media are all collaborating in this effort. I'll cite just two examples from the very recent past to prove the point.
First, Twitter. There are dozens (possibly, by now, hundreds) of accounts all tweeting the identical warning about COVID-19. Here's one user's discovery of what's going on. The image below shows six almost identical tweets from six different accounts, all saying exactly the same thing in exactly the same words. If a picture tells a thousand words, this one speaks volumes. Clickit to biggit.
That's not the only example of identical tweets being repeated ad nauseam by dozens, or scores, or hundreds, or even thousands of accounts. Dishonest propaganda in plain view.
Next, social and news media. Remember this article last week?
Dr. Brytney Cobia said Monday that all but one of her COVID patients in Alabama did not receive the vaccine. The vaccinated patient, she said, just needed a little oxygen and is expected to fully recover. Some of the others are dying.
“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, in an emotional Facebook post Sunday. “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”
. . .
For the first year and a half of the pandemic, Cobia and hundreds of other Alabama physicians caring for critically ill COVID-19 patients worked themselves to the bone trying to save as many as possible.
“Back in 2020 and early 2021, when the vaccine wasn’t available, it was just tragedy after tragedy after tragedy,” Cobia told AL.com this week. “You know, so many people that did all the right things, and yet still came in, and were critically ill and died.”
. . .
“A few days later when I call time of death,” continued Cobia on Facebook, “I hug their family members and I tell them the best way to honor their loved one is to go get vaccinated and encourage everyone they know to do the same.”
“They cry. And they tell me they didn’t know. They thought it was a hoax. They thought it was political. They thought because they had a certain blood type or a certain skin color they wouldn’t get as sick. They thought it was ‘just the flu’. But they were wrong. And they wish they could go back. But they can’t. So they thank me and they go get the vaccine. And I go back to my office, write their death note, and say a small prayer that this loss will save more lives.”

There's an interesting problem with that article. Go to the Web site of Grandview Medical Center. Click over to the "Find A Doctor" page. Do you see a Dr. Brytney Cobia listed there? Funny - neither do I. The only "Cobia" listed is a Dr. Miles Cobia, a neurologist. In fact, a general Internet search for "Dr. Brytney Cobia" reveals only her article and comments about it - nothing else. I find that highly suspicious when we're dealing with a medical practitioner. Surely her practice, or membership of a group practice, should show up somewhere?
EDITED TO ADD: It appears that the above paragraph was based on wrong information, and/or I misinterpreted or misunderstood the information that was available. My thanks to the readers who pointed that out in Comments, and my apologies to all concerned. I've left the original text in place, but struck through, so that others can see what was said and thus understand the comments that were made, but know that it no longer applies.
American Thinker finds that Dr. Cobia's claims are not supported by official data.
Tucker Carlson points out that "this isn't about the science", because the official shibboleth comes apart at the seams when one examines actual, hard data. Bold, underlined text is my emphasis.
In Los Angeles, officials brought back the mask mandate when COVID cases moved up so slightly it's hard even to measure the rise on a chart. That's the so-called "spike" they cited as justification is barely noticeable on a chart. Do politicians in Los Angeles know something we don't know? We can't be sure. We do know, fairly certainly, the news media are lying about science in order to justify the new restrictions. Why would they want to do that? We have no idea.
But here’s one example: In Florida, the Sun-Sentinel newspaper recently ran this headline. "New COVID cases nearly double in Florida – the worst in the nation." Holy smokes. Better run to Georgia.
And to show how scary this is, they included a chart that shows an uptick in positive test results, and it looked terrifying. But those are the test results. But actually, who cares? What matters is the harm. What they didn't include is the chart showing COVID deaths. I wonder why? Because those are near zero. That’s a very different picture, and it’s the one that actually matters.
It wasn't long ago that all of us understood that. People like Tony Fauci, in fact, told us the goal was keeping people from dying from COVID. That sounded reasonable to everybody. That’s why they said we needed the vaccine. That’s why millions took the vaccine. Now that they have taken the vaccine, politicians have decided that actually, they can’t part with the enormous, unprecedented amounts of power they’ve amassed over the last year, so they’re going to keep ordering us AROUND, regardless of the science.

Rochelle Walensky is an actual doctor. She's the director of the CDC. She went to Harvard. She’s never been elected to anything, but in a pandemic like this, her word is law. It’s more powerful than anything Congress produces. She’s her own federal agency. In fact, on a continuum, she sits somewhere between king and God. So read carefully as Rochelle Walensky tells you that COVID is killing twice as many children as influenza.
WALENSKY: I think it’s really important for people to understand that this is not a benign disease compared to other diseases our kids see. If you look at the mortality rate of COVID, just this past year for children, it's more than twice the mortality rate that we see in influenza in a given year.
So, you’re not supposed to question that, and we didn’t really dare to check those numbers, because who are we to check the numbers from an unelected federal bureaucrat when she’s commanding us to obey. So we didn’t, we just took it at face value.
But a columnist called Phil Kerpen, who’s a columnist and had some free time, decided to check the CDC numbers on what the CDC director claimed on CNN.
What did he find? He found that the CDC director has no idea what she’s talking about.
From 2019 to 2020, according to the CDC, a total of 124 children died of COVID. From 2020 to 2021, 213 children died of COVID. By comparison, influenza killed more than 400 children just last year. In fact, that was not an abberation. Influenza has killed far more children than COVID has in each of the past five years. It's not even close.
And that's assuming the CDC's numbers on child deaths from COVID are accurate, and it looks like they’re not. In a recent report, the CDC itself acknowledges it could be vastly over-reporting the number of children who are dying from COVID. The CDC report states that, when considering everyone who died of COVID, roughly 2.5% of those who died had a co-existing medical condition unrelated to their deaths. But for children under the age of 18, that number is dramatic – over 35% of children who died from COVID had what the CDC calls an "unrelated medical condition."
In other words, more than a third of children who are listed on the official records as dying from COVID had comorbidity that the CDC assures us cannot possibly be connected to COVID. But it appears, upon closer examination, the comorbidities might in fact be related to the deaths of those children.
. . .
This is insane. Who is going to get up and say so? No one so far. Instead, the floor is left to Rochelle Walensky and people like her: manipulators of data and liars.
. . .
If you want us to have confidence in your medicine, then tell us the full truth. But they won’t. They've been telling us for six months the vaccine is perfect. But clearly, in some cases, it doesn’t work.
. . .
The other day, Pfizer's purchase agreement with the Albanian government leaked on the internet. One of many fascinating excerpts from that document, lots of legalese. But between it all, lots of quotes like this:"Purchaser acknowledges the long-term effects and efficacy of the Vaccine are not currently known and that there may be adverse effects of the Vaccine that are not currently known."
Reassuring? What are those effects? And why don’t we know? And why can’t we ask? No one is pausing to ask questions at this moment, though. That’s not allowed.
Fake tweets, fake news articles, fake "official pronouncements". The powers that be are trying to herd us like scared sheep - and those who can't or won't think for themselves are allowing themselves to be herded.
For our lives' sake (literally), we'd better make sure we're not among them.
