We've been had, and Trump knows it

March 28, 2020
We've been had, and Trump knows it
By Geoffrey P. Hunt
While President Trump closed the U.S. border against entry from China at the end of January, his overall instinct was right. The CCP virus was nasty, but no worse than a supercharged flu.

Health professionals overwhelmed Trump and his inner circle with doomsday scenarios, bullied by panic-obsessed virologists and epidemiologists — begging for attention and copying the alarmist playbook from the climate/global warming extremists, allied with the MSM Trump-haters.

And now the government has completely suffocated economic demand, creating a depression, an unnecessary calamity that is destroying lives, livelihoods, families, and fortunes for a generation. It is becoming apparent that the end-of-the-world predictions, computer models warning of an apocalyptic black plague worldwide, are all wrong.

Those paying attention were warned that the worse-case scenarios were hysterical, by the likes of Stanford epidemiologist John P.A. Ioannidis.

In dramatic fashion, U.K. Imperial College scientist Neil Ferguson published a doomsday scenario on March 16. Now, just ten days later, he has reversed his outlook, essentially settling on a prediction no worse than a bad flu season.

Most telling, the two U.S. public health icons, Drs Fauci and Birx, are both saying the extreme models that provoked extreme measures bear little resemblance to the actual data on the ground. From the New England Journal of Medicine March 26 co-authored by Fauci:

This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.

Re: Dr. Birx from The Hill:

Birx, speaking at a White House press briefing, singled out a recent study on the United Kingdom that originally predicted 500,000 people would die from the virus and has since been revised down to predict 20,000 deaths in the U.K. She said the data the government has collected does not show that 20 percent of the U.S. population would be infected with COVID-19, cautioning against predictions that say so.

"When people start talking about 20 percent of a population getting infected, it is very scary but we don't have data that matches that based on the experience," Birx said.

"There's no ... reality on the ground where we can see that 60 to 70 percent of Americans are going to get infected in the next eight to 12 weeks," Birx later continued.

Perhaps Trump had no other option than to go with the flow when this crisis unfolded. But he is not usually a slave to consensus. He was elected because he is a contrarian. His contrarian antennae have already sent signals that he must reset the economy, pronto.

Trump wants America to reopen by Easter. Despite his ambition being ridiculed and criticized, he's right to pivot from hysteria to rebound.

Sadly, waaay too many on the right have been caught up in all of this and are not only willfully going along with the overreaction but, also arguing for it as the evil necessary for our survival. And that is what is frightening me, not the actual virus itself.

Completely agree. I did not mean to suggest that the virus itself is a conspiracy (though I won’t rule out the possibility of China or Charmin), just the opposing party’s approach to it.

It’s so glaringly obvious, and yet so many have fallen for it.

We know Covid is real based solely on other high IQ nations like Italy, Hapan, S Korea, Singapore locking down. Are they all in on the conspiracy to screw Fat Donny too?

I will say that my wife is an ER nurse. She frequently works triage. She is in PPE guiding people to negative pressure treatment chambers. She’s on the front line assessing who is getting what treatment.

And every medical professional she knows is extremely worried. The doctors here are on instagram and facebook and email and zoom conferences with doctors across the country. For most people who get it, yes, this will likely be a medium flu. Stay inside. Drink water and rest and you’ll be fine. But for enough population, they will require hospitalization. And a significant portion of those who require hospitalization will require ventilators and other emergency care. The fatality rate for those needing a vent is about 80%.

My wife’s hospital has already outlined triage protocol for determining who gets a vent. Frankly, some people are just being sent home to die because there aren’t enough vents or beds in the hospital.

We haven’t been had. Read this doc’s assessment of what is going on because it dovetails with what these doctors are seeing across the country:
