Video: REALITY CHECK: Projections Were Way Off, But States Are Still Trampling Rights While the CDC Inflates Death Tolls


On Thursday, the CDC announced their national COVID-19 death tally will now also reflect thousands of “probable” coronavirus-related fatalities. In the meantime, states are trampling on our rights based on this super scientific and not-at-all-made-up death toll.

The Coronavirus Hoax


By Ron Paul
LewRockwell.com

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis.

On Face the Nation, Fauci did his best to further damage an already tanking economy by stating, “Right now, personally, myself, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant.” He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this?

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to wipe out these microscopic enemies?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.

Video: Gohmert Questions NFL Legend Burgess Owens in Judiciary Hearing on Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties


Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX01) spoke in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Hearing regarding H.R. 40, Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. He talked about the missing history of the Democratic Party in the debate over reparations and responsibility. In his remarks, he noted that slavery and Jim Crow laws were part of the Democrats missing years. The missing years of Democrats history included overwhelming opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act as Rep. Gohmert noted, “Three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act came in the House from the Democrats while 80% of the nay votes in the Senate came from the Democrats.”

He additionally said, “There is no reference in the history of the Democratic party platform supporting slavery. There were six of those from 1840 – 1860. No reference to the Democratic presidents who owned slaves – there were seven from 1800 – 1861. There is no reference to Democratic platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were twenty from 1868 – 1948. No reference to Jim Crow laws nor is there a reference to the role the Democrats played in creating them. These were the post-Civil War laws enthusiastically passed by the Democrats in that pesky fifty-year part of the DNC’s missing years.”

And added, “It is important that we know our history, and we not punish people today for the sins of their predecessors in the Democratic Party.”

He also questioned NFL legend Mr. Burgess Owens and asked, “What do you think your great grandfather Silas would have said to someone who claims, ‘the Republicans are the party of racism?’
