Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Twitter Suspends PragerU, Prominent Conservatives, and Doctors for Commenting on HCQ Twitter temporarily suspended the accounts of PragerU and a variety of prominent conservatives and even a doctor on Wednesday after they tweeted videos of doctors commenting on the effectiveness of the drug Hydroxychloroquine or otherwise commented on the drug. Conservative non-profit group PragerU had its account restricted on Wednesday for allegedly violating the platform’s rules regarding posts about coronavirus after sharing a video of the “White Coat Summit” featuring medical doctors. “American doctors are holding a ‘White Coat Summit’ in Washington, D.C. to address ‘a massive disinformation campaign’ by the media about coronavirus,” read PragerU’s tweet. “Watch as Dr. Stella Immanuel tackles the media’s narrative about hydroxychloroquine.”
Twitter, Facebook, YouTube desperate to kill countering coronavirus thought President Donald Trump shared critical tweets about Anthony Fauci that raised questions about the doctor’s truth-telling of the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine to help cure the coronavirus — and the censors on social media responded by removing his posts. Anyone who thinks freedom of speech still stands strong in this nation — take note: It does not. Big Tech is watching, always watching. The social media censors have become the Big Brothers of modern times. And they were in high gear in recent hours to scrub certain YouTube, Facebook and Twitter mentions of the America’s Frontline Doctors gathering on Capitol Hill, the one where doctors who differ in Covid-19 opinion from Fauci were given a platform to speak. Boy, did they speak. Trump retweeted this, from @WarRoomPandemic, as The Daily Mail noted: “Dr. Lee Vliet: Dr Fauci has misled the American public on many issues, but in particular, on dismissing #hydroxychloroquine and calling Remdesivir the new gold standard.” The message, came above a video clip of Steve Bannon, former White House strategist, discussing the matter.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, citing ‘mucosa,’ now wants goggles, face shields Give Dr. Anthony Fauci an inch and he’ll take a mile. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director now wants to stick Americans in goggles and shields, in addition to the face masks. What’s next, Mission Oriented Protective Posture Gear — better known by its military and chemical weapons warfare acronym, MOPP gear? Why not. “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” Fauci told ABC News in an Instagram Live interview. LOL. OMG. WT — freak. “Comedy of Dunces” ain’t got nothing in the humor department compared to this guy. “You have mucosa in the nose, mucosa in the mouth, but you also have mucosa in the eye,” Fauci said. “Theoretically, you should protect all the mucosal surfaces. So if you have goggles or an eye shield you should use it.” Blue ribbon for the best mucosa meme. But he was serious. “[I]f you really want to be complete,” Fauci said, “you should probably use it if you can.” Here’s how the whole coronavirus clampdown on individual rights has gone: First comes the recommendation. Then comes the executive order. Then comes the radically un-American policing force to enforce the radically un-American recommendation-slash-order. Then come the private sector businesses with their dictates: No shirt, no shoes, no face masks, so service.
Health bureaucrats have crippled America Look around. America the free is America the stifled. And what’s perhaps the saddest about this reality is the stifling has come not by law, not by ordinance, not by duly passed legislation by duly elected officials — but by the whims and wishes of unelected, largely unaccountable medical bureaucrats. If face masks are the great godsends of COVID-19 protections they’re made out to be, why don’t legislators pass mandates the American constitutional way — by proposing bills, openly debating the bills, publicly voting on the bills and going on record with votes for these bills that allow the people to hold them accountable? Why don’t local boards of supervisors and city councils? If social distancing is the sure way of containing the virus, why don’t state governors, in partnership with state representatives, pen pieces of legislation that dictate the particulars of social distancing policy for schools, for businesses, for places of public gathering — and put in print, for all the citizenry to see, any exceptions to these regulations that may arise, such as Black Lives Matter protests in the streets? That way, there’s continuity in enforcement and application of law so, say, street protesters aren’t allowed to operate under one version of laws and business owners and shoppers, another. That way, there’s clarity.
Trump suggests delaying elections to avoid ‘great embarrassment’ from mail-in vote fraud President Trump suggested Thursday that the November election should be delayed due to “fraudulent” expanded mail-in voting and the coronavirus pandemic. “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” the president tweeted. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” The presidential election is fixed by law and could only be delayed by Congress changing the law. The Constitution decrees that the incumbent president’s term ends at noon on Jan. 20. The U.S. has never changed or delayed a presidential election, even during the Civil War in 1864. Federal law known as 2 U.S. Code Section 7 states that federal Election Day is the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Asked at a House hearing this week whether the president has authority to take executive action to override that law, Attorney General William P. Barr replied, “I’ve never been asked the question before. I’ve never looked into it.” Senior presidential adviser Jared Kushner told Time magazine in May that he wasn’t certain whether the election would be held as scheduled in November. “I’m not sure I can commit one way or the other, but right now that’s the plan,” he said.
Hour 2 – Special Guest Jefferey Jaxen
You Must Not ‘Do Your Own Research’ When It Comes To Science “ Research both sides and make up your own mind.” It’s simple, straightforward, common sense advice. And when it comes to issues like vaccinations, climate change, and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, it can be dangerous, destructive, and even deadly. The techniques that most of us use to navigate most of our decisions in life — gathering information, evaluating it based on what we know, and choosing a course of action — can lead to spectacular failures when it comes to a scientific matter. The reason is simple: most of us, even those of us who are scientists ourselves, lack the relevant scientific expertise needed to adequately evaluate that research on our own. In our own fields, we are aware of the full suite of data, of how those puzzle pieces fit together, and what the frontiers of our knowledge is. When laypersons espouse opinions on those matters, it’s immediately clear to us where the gaps in their understanding are and where they’ve misled themselves in their reasoning. When they take up the arguments of a contrarian scientist, we recognize what they’re overlooking, misinterpreting, or omitting.

Facebook and YouTube are letting anti-vaccine figure Del Bigtree push deadly coronavirus misinformation Facebook and YouTube have given prominent anti-vaccine figure Del Bigtree near-impunity to spread dangerous medical misinformation about the novel coronavirus and the development of a vaccine for the COVID-19 disease on their platforms. During broadcasts of his online show The HighWire, which are available for live streaming and playback at Facebook and YouTube, Bigtree has: falsely characterized COVID-19 as a common cold and labeled it “one of the most mild illnesses there is” ; repeatedly falsely claimed wearing a mask poses a serious health hazard; repeatedly suggested that people intentionally expose themselves to the coronavirus in order to build herd immunity; hosted guests who advised viewers who think they have the coronavirus to take vitamin C until they have diarrhea and then to take more vitamin C; and declared the coronavirus outbreak is over on March 27 and encouraged people to go outside to celebrate (more than 140,000 Americans have died of the disease since that date). Viewers who listen to Bigtree’s advice could easily contract COVID-19 and suffer serious medical consequences, including death.
Anti-maskers are the new anti-vaxxers It used to be that Dr. Rashid Buttar was well known only in alternative-medicine circles, where he promoted an anti-vaccine agenda. But when the coronavirus pandemic hit, his message expanded. In addition to vaccines, he’s now lambasting face masks. Buttar, an osteopathic physician and conspiracy theorist, recently bragged that a conference he organized over Memorial Day weekend attracted hundreds of people “from all over the world” who didn’t wear masks indoors. He has falsely claimed that face coverings reduce your oxygen intake, lead to toxin inhalation, impair your immune system, and highlight “your disturbing stupidity.” People who wear them, he said, are “COVIDiots.” Buttar is far from the only anti-vaccine advocate who’s taken on an anti-mask crusade in 2020. And his audience is here for it. A video series in which Buttar peddled coronavirus conspiracy theories garnered millions of views before YouTube removed it. Del Bigtree, the CEO of the anti-vaccination group Informed Consent Action Network, estimated on Business Insider Today that his own weekly anti-vaccine talk show’s audience grew 25-fold from late February to late May.
TRUTH OVER FEAR: FRAMING AMERICA’S SECOND COVID ‘SPIKE’ Do you smell that? COVID fear is in the air…again. It emanates from multiple fronts. After trying to frame the donning of masks as ‘patriotic,’ President Trump announced he was canceling his Jacksonville, Florida convention. “I looked at my team, and I said the timing for this event is not right. It’s just not right. To have a big convention, it’s not the right time,” he said. The U.S. is seeing some cities ordering new traveler quarantines, and mayors are urging residents to wear masks, even in the confines of their own home. New York state has instructed people traveling to the tri-state area from 31 U.S. states that they must self-quarantine for 14 days. Fear! Is this the dreaded second wave? In early April Stanford University professor of medicine and epidemiology, Dr. John Ioannidis, published research on COVID. It concluded, “People <65 years old have very small risks of COVID-19 death even in the hotbeds of the pandemic and deaths for people <65 years without underlying predisposing conditions are remarkably uncommon.” At the time, Dr. Ioannidis and co-authors suggested that strategies should focus on protecting high-risk elderly individuals. His data-driven, scientifically supported calls were ignored. Despite this dire warning, multiple states, like Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New York, packed nursing homes with COVID-positive patients, decimating a generation of elderly Americans. During a Fox News interview, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul recently called for Cuomo’s impeachment for “the worst public policy and public health decision, maybe in a century.”
Fall School Openings Offer Latest Dystopian Twist Back to school should be around the corner…in a typical year. But in 2020, authorities are insisting upon yet another ‘new normal.’ Definitive answers from officials are elusive, and any semblance of consistency is hard to come by. As it stands, Sunday, July 19, plans are all over the map, if a map exists for what school will look like this fall. A hodgepodge of make-it-up-as-we-go-along decisions by schools has produced various shades of dystopian realities for unfortunate kids and their harried parents entering the new school year. Tufts University will be testing students for Covid twice a week; staff who interacts with students will be tested at least once per week. In what the university president calls ‘a real game-changer,’ Tufts is one of many higher learning institutions that plan to work with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University this fall to do campus-wide COVID-19 ‘surveillance testing.’ Throughout the USA, testing turnaround times have lagged. The two top companies, LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics, recently announced “at least seven days” and “four to six days” for results, respectively. As testing time lags nationwide, questions remain whether MIT’s Broad Institute can deliver on their promise of returning test results “within about 24 hours of receipt”—remember, we just learned they’ll have to juggle multiple campuses now too, testing students twice a week. Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, Boston University plans to use its on-campus lab to test its students. Will students dutifully submit to testing twice per week? How will the schools track compliance? What will the penalties be for not complying? What happens to those who test positive? Has the FDA evaluated the tests under its emergency use status?
