The truth about the pandemic begins to emerge.

Paul GleiserThe truth about the pandemic begins to emerge.

What started as a trickle of information is becoming a steady stream that may turn into a flood. By increments it is coming out that the U.S. response to the COVID pandemic, a response that was emulated by most of the world, was deeply flawed and likely caused harm that will last for a generation.

Little by little, respected, well-credentialed people armed with facts and expertise are tempting the truth ministers of social media and risking their reputations and careers. With increasing boldness, they dare to say out loud that the “experts” blew it.

Facts are emerging that increasingly make it clear that shutting down the economy, quarantining the healthy (a first in the history of pandemics), keeping kids out of school, banning church services, weddings and funerals, forcing people to wear masks, and forcing them to submit to a hastily created vaccine – taken all together – likely did more harm than good.

There are too many examples of such belated enlightenment for the available space. Here are just a few.

Cleveland Clinic conducted a study encompassing 51,000 of its own employees seeking to evaluate the efficacy of COVID vaccines. The results of that survey revealed that the more one is vaxxed and boosted, the greater the likelihood of contracting COVID.

The Cochrane Library published a review of dozens of randomized controlled trials showing that masks “made little or no difference” in the transmission of COVID.

There is both anecdotal and academic evidence that the mRNA COVID vaccines have caused widespread injury and premature death arising from cardiac injury.

What we can now see with the perfect clarity of hindsight is that the advent of COVID opened the door for a microscopically small cohort of “experts” to arrogate to themselves nearly unlimited authority over the lives of ordinary working Americans. Those experts were aided and abetted by elite members of academia, government, media and Big Tech.

When those who could ill afford the economic effects of COVID lockdowns complained – e.g. the working class, small business owners, restaurant waiters, etc. – they were dismissed as “Neanderthal” and even “evil.”

What’s most troubling about all of this isn’t so much that the experts got it wrong (though the track record of the experts seems to be on a downward trend). What’s most troubling is that through it all, no debate was permitted. Lay people and dissenting scientists alike were shamed, set upon and silenced. Doctors Jay Bhattacharya,  Sunetra Gupta and Martin Kulldorff – all highly credentialed in the areas of infectious disease and epidemiology – suffered enormous negative professional consequences for authoring and disseminating the “Great Barrington Declaration,” which dared raise questions about the advisability and consequences of prevailing COVID-19 policies.

It is increasingly evident that the “expert class” – as embodied by the likes of Dr. Anthony Fauci and which accumulated to itself the authority to suspend our very liberties – failed. Again.

The experts were wrong. We all pay the price.

But as usual, those who can least afford it, i.e. the poor and the working class, pay the most.

    I am convinced that nothing can alter the convictions of the extended (not quite extreme) Left or Right. So much information, true and false, has muddled our brains to the point we just blindly vote for a D or R and occasionally another party which we know nothing about! All the investigations, convictions (if any), and revelations, will just be considered how bad we are being treated. No matter who “we” are!

    Was watching Varney and Company on Fox Business this morning learning more about the weaponization of the Justice Department and the FBI. New York School’s Administration, New York Teacher’s Union, and the wonderful National Teacher’s Union made sure all New York teachers who did not get a Covid vaccination were “Flagged” on their automated resumes’. Now if any of these teachers; who many lost their jobs, attempt to apply for a job will be met with a big fat ding when their hopeful employer is researching their work history. Another shining example of the Progressive Left’s cancel culture and the Woke Cult infecting our Nation.

      Sorry, was in a hurry to go fishing!!! But left out where the FBI and DOJ were part of this conspiracy to insure these teacher’s ant-vax stance was logged into a National data base working hand in hand with the afore mentioned groups. As tough as some of us think we are, fighting against such powerful Federal groups is impossible for the average US citizen.

    In the heart of every man is the seed of evil that results in becoming a tool of tyranny IF allowed to flourish without a God driven conscience, which is, worshiping mammon not God. “You cannot serve both God and mammon.”

    When the esteemed medical professionals of historical respect were banished from the COVID-19 conversation with defamation on a 24/7 basis by the usual Marxist-WOKE suspects acting as agents of the CCP’s infiltration for the last 20 years, I realized early in 2020 that this was part of a sysop operation to begin the eradication of our fundamental Constitution liberties in every venue.

    What better way than to use FEAR by weaponizing a normally routine virus and spiking a fraudulent “vaccine” to create a reason for identifying those that would cooperate with a tyranny infested Trojan Horse that was designed to gain willing compliance in the unwitting population in order to “protect” them from a manufactured crisis while banishing alternative medicine that was saving lives and keeping victims out of the hospital.

    This experimental exercise in Tyranny proved that it can be done with impunity, even in the good ‘ole USA! Now that the BIG LIE is being exposed, how many of the duped will recognize raw tyranny and reject it by helping to expose the LIE to their friends that were also duped and restore friendship with those that were banished BECAUSE they were NOT FOOLED and who rejected the LIE from the beginning.
