I think I am where most sane people are about the outbreak:
–Concerned but not panicked.
–Calm but not apathetic.
–Accepting reasonable precautions but staying skeptical of what most of the supposedly”best experts” here in the United States are telling us about every part of their belated emergency management and response (particularly in their pimping of vaccine development to prevent the disease).
Below are some simple, nonhysterical facts: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control is a bloated federal government agency with a long history of incompetence, fraud, secrecy, mission creep and shady alliances with the two social justice causes behind the left and private corporations about the big business right. The”deep state” of entrenched bureaucrats embedded in the Beltway intestines is alive and thriving at the CDC. The unelected elites who have inhabited offices that are top are hostile to public scrutiny when. Their recommendations have been detrimental to citizens’ well-being and freedom.
And, yes, many there are rabidly anti-Trump and anti-conservative.
Cognitively impaired and truth-challenged Joe Biden made the claim during a week’s Democratic argument that these purported”Draconian cuts” place Americans at risk. But Trump’s budget proposal to cut some sliver of CDC fat hasn’t been enacted, and Congress increased funding, instead.
At almost $7 billion, the annual budget of CDC is more than 200% bigger than it was. In addition to that, a shady major business lobbying group called Friends of CDC has raised hundreds of millions of dollars that were supplemental — which raises issues. In 2007, Sen. Tom Coburn’s financial audit of the bureau discovered vulgar expenses such as CDC syphilis prevention capital spent to sponsor a”safe-sex” affair using a porn star, CDC HIV/AIDS prevention capital spent a transgender beauty pageant, and $45 million in CDC funds spent conferences featuring prostitutes, protests and shore parties.
The bureau been caught flat-footed on outbreak after outbreak. They squander untold countless other health threats in favor of pushing gun control and nanny state hobby horses (TV violence, helmet legislation, video games, anti-bullying attempts and explicit sex education, for example). CDC has one primary job — Disease Control — but has managed to botch it without actually learning from failures. Allow Me to remind you of some of the CDC’s long history of imperial screw-ups:
–The notorious 1976 swine influenza vaccine scandal was catalyzed by mass hysteria whipped up by CDC junk scientists clamoring for more money; Congress falsified and almost 45 million Americans were jabbed using a vaccine for a disease that had fizzled at the time the shots were ready. The vaccine led to a heightened risk of developing Guillain-Barre syndrome — resulting in muscular weakness and paralysis.
In 1999, the CDC misspent $22.7 million appropriated for chronic fatigue syndrome and has been researched in 2001 for squandering $13 million on hepatitis C research.
In 2000, the bureau basically lied to Congress about the way that it spent around $7.5 million earmarked annually since 1993 for research on the deadly hantavirus. “Rather, seemingly without asking Congress, the CDC spent much of the money on other programs that the agency thought needed the capital more,” The Washington Post disclosed at the moment. The diversions were impossible to trace because of CDC accounting practices.
In 2009, the CDC recalled 800,000 doses of swine influenza vaccine for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years following the products failed tests.
In 2012, the most important building housing of the CDC infectious anthrax, SARS and monkeypox gases had been discovered to have been leaking pathogens because of a airflow method.
In 2014, while ill, the CDC response to Ebola virus gave the greenlight to infected personnel and Patient Zero Thomas Eric Duncan to board commercial airlines — exposing countless numbers of travelers into the deadly disease. Expensive isolation chambers that was subsidized by taxpayers to the tune of $15 million sat buried at a Georgia warehouse.
–For the last couple of decades, the bureau has used a panic effort to induce Americans to acquire routine flu shots (formulated according to guesswork) using faulty statistics and despite international scientific conclusions that there is”no evidence” to support the CDC’s assumptions that the vaccine reduces transmission of the virus or the risk of potentially fatal complications.
–Only this week, the Informed Consent Action Network reported astonishing results from its litigation against the CDC to obtain scientific evidence for the agency’s claim that”vaccines don’t cause autism” — specifically for its initial seven vaccines given for your child in their first six weeks of life. CDC had stonewalled, then finally generated 20 studies — 18 of which were irrelevant to ICAN’s public records request and two of which imply that autism may be indeed caused by vaccines. In other words: The CDC is lying while continuing to smear vaccine critics as”conspiracy theorists” and public health threats.
As if to emphasize my point about this agency’s misdirected priorities and position political pandering, the CDC director this week found it urgent to condemn Republicans as bisexual for accurately describing the roots of the virus in Wuhan, China, than to perform his job.
Informed diagnosis: The”best people” — who have now been rewarded with over $8.3 billion in new”emergency funding” — aren’t responsible.
