The Washington Times: Coronavirus Hype Biggest Political Hoax in History

By Cheryl K. Chumley


The new coronavirus is real.

The response to the coronavirus is hyped. And in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed.

In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government.

The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does nothing to the vast majority.

That’s it.

The Real Deal Reports (27 April 2020) with Dean Ryan in LA and Mike Bara in Seattle

That, in a nutshell, is it.

Or, in the words of Dan Erickson and Artin Massih, doctors and co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California: Let’s get the country reopened — and now.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. … [T]he data is showing it’s time to lift,” Erickson said, in a recent interview.

He’s right. They’re right.

The data to keep America closed and Americans closed in simply doesn’t exist.

If truth be told, it’s questionable it ever did.

The scientists leading the coronavirus shutdown charge predicted in March that in America, between 100,000 and 250,000 would die. They based those estimates on computer modeling.

But at the same time they were basing those estimates on computer modeling, they were acknowledging that computer modeling is inaccurate and errs on the side of hype.

“I’ve never seen a model of the diseases I’ve dealt with where the worst-case actually came out,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of President Donald Trump’s White House coronavirus task force, during a CNN interview in March. “They always overshoot.”

Catch that? Fauci’s message: Computer models are flawed and inaccurate and always overestimate the problem.

But from these faulty overinflated computer figures came all the constitutionally questionable actions by government anyway — from ordering businesses closed to quarantining-slash-house arresting American citizens to doing some quick and pitiful and economically painful income redistribution schemes via stimulus funds’ legislation.

Since, about 56,000 have died in America due to coronavirus — or have they? Again, the facts are flimsy.

Real Deal Reports (28 April 2020) with Dean Ryan in LA and Mike Bara in Seattle

Government ordered hospitals weeks ago to stop performing elective surgeries to make way for the projected numbers of coronavirus patients. So they did. And in so doing, they cut off their revenue streams. So Congress passed legislation giving hospitals billions of dollars to treat coronavirus patients. Conflict of interest? Yikes. Yes.

The coronavirus counts, already flawed from computer modeling, were then given another flaw treatment.

“[Pennsylvania] removes more than 200 deaths from official coronavirus count as questions mount about reporting process, data accuracy,” The Inquirer reported.

Add to that the ever-changing nature of a virus that spreads by air and contact, and honestly, suddenly, even expert Fauci’s best guess is about as good as Joe Neighbor’s best guess. So that leaves common sense, combined with knowledge of past viruses, to guide.

But the quote-unquote medical experts refused to go there, refused to acknowledge common sense, refused to compare with past viruses in any way that didn’t hype the coronavirus counts.

This virus was different, Americans were told. This virus was far more contagious than anything ever before seen or studied, Americans were told. And any time the case counts dropped off and the numbers proved wrong, well, this was due to the social distancing and quarantining and face-mask wearing that Americans had been doing, by government’s order — Americans were told.

It just didn’t make sense.

It just doesn’t add up.

It just didn’t, and doesn’t, justify the utter shredding of civil rights.

And now some in the medical community, thank goodness, are starting to point out the glaring omissions of logic and fact that have plagued this overhyped, overreaching coronavirus crackdown that has stretched on far, far too long.

Among some of Erickson’s remarks: “This is immunology — microbiology 101. This is the basis of what we’ve known for years: When you take human beings and you say, ‘Go into your house, clean all your counters, Lysol them down’ … what does it do to our immune system? … Sheltering in place decreases your immune system.”

And this: “Any time you have something new in the [medical] community, it sparks fear — and I would have done what Dr. Fauci did … initially. … But you know, looking at theories and models — which is what these folks use — is very different than the way the actual virus presents itself throughout communities.”

Real Deal Reports (29 April 2020) with Dean Ryan in LA and Mike Bara in Seattle

And this: “Do you think you’re protected from COVID when you wear gloves that transfer disease everywhere? … We wear masks in an acute setting to protect us. [But] we’re not wearing masks. Why is that? Because we understand microbiology. We understand immunology. And we want strong immune systems. I don’t want to hide in my home, develop a weak immune system and then come out and get disease.”

And this: “When I’m writing up my death report I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that? Why are we being pressured to add COVID? To maybe increase the numbers, and make it look a little bit worse than it is. We’re being pressured in-house to add COVID to the diagnostic list when we think it has nothing to do with the actual cause of death. The actual cause of death was not COVID, but it’s being reported as one of the diseases processes. … COVID didn’t kill them, 25 years of tobacco use killed.”

Does it get any clearer than that?

Seriously, America. The only reason America is still in shutdown mode is political.

Either politicians are too afraid to make any move that might come back to bite them politically or politicians are using this coronavirus to political advantage — to, say, pass gun control laws, like Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam. Or to, say, float campaign hopes on the current ravaged economy, like former Vice President Joe Biden and oh, all the Democrats facing races.

But for the rest of America — the rest of hardworking, freedom-loving America — it’s time to reel in the radically unconstitutional.

“If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights, you better have a good reason — you better have a really good reason, not just a theory,” Erickson said. “The data is showing us it’s time to lift … so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”

That is the key question.

As time goes by, the answer will only become more and more evident. The coronavirus may be real — but the hype is hoaxed. Now let’s just hope this is a one-time hoax that doesn’t roll around every time flu season approaches.

  1. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!….and as usual, a woman has more balls than a man!!
    A bunch of folks got together and just made some calls!!

    Revealed: Here is how Americans can get everything re-opened:
    The following was posted to social media from Ohio:

    Not sure if some you guys remember but my mother, who owns a dog grooming business told Dewine to pound salt and that she was going to reopen anyways. She is almost out of money and still has to receive her trump check.

    So she opened up on the 1st and within 4 hours, someone called and snitched. Local health department showed up and of course my mom stood her ground and wanted to know the laws that say she is to be closed down. Of course the woman couldnt site such a law as they simply do not exist.

    The woman told my mother that she would not be back out if she opened the next day and that they would send the cops. Mom being mom didn’t want the hassle of dealing with all the bullshit so she shutdown the next day.

    Well she had to call all her customers and tell them what happened and reschedule their appointments and one of her customers said “ive had enough of this crap, im calling the health department to complain”. Well needless to say, this sparked a wild fire within my mothers customers base and there wound up being 29 people that called.

    Guess who called yesterday and wound up hand delivering the official document that she could reopen? Local health department. What did they say? She told my mother she could go ahead and reopen and that eventually they stopped answering the phone because they knew it was about my moms grooming business.

    WE THE PEOPLE WIN AGAIN!!! Business reopened and possibly saved from economic doom and to top it all off, the woman literally said, we wasn’t going to allow you to reopen but we simply could not handle all the calls so we decided it was best to let you open!

    MY COMMENT: So the dog grooming business lives, while the others who have no balls still die anyway. OPEN YOUR BUSINESS NOW, WTF CAN THEY DO?

  2. It just keeps coming!

    ITALIAN MP: Coronavirus falsified, 96.3% listed as COVID died of something else
    There were 925 actual coronavirus deaths in Italy with the remaining claimed 24, 000 dead from something else.
    Italian MP Vittorio Sgarbi, denounced the closure of 60% of the businesses for 25, 000 COVID-19 Deaths, of which the National Institute of Health says 96.3% did not die of covid 19 but of other pathologies. That means only 925 have died of the virus. 24, 075 have died of other things. He says false statistics are being use to terrorize the citizens of Italy and establish a dictatorship.

    1. The EXACT same phony stats are being used in the USA to terrorize people. The number of reported covid deaths in the USA is wildly inflated. Ninety % of my neighbors and family are in state of terror. They refuse to listen to reason and common sense. They are all sheeple. Its easy to panic the TV watching, Smart Phone crowd.

  3. At this point, 6:58 Friday, the Raw Deal is still live. DO NOT MISS THE REMAINDER and/or find it tomorrow…
    Jack and Fetzer have it down damn clearly and it’s not pretty at all….

  4. I find it a bit strange I did not get a response to Icke’s revelations in this video. I can understand some avoiding Icke…….but what he presents in this vid are blockbuster FACTS, not theory….so here it goes again. Just give it 15 minutes.

    In case that one does not open:

    1. Yes, of course. I suspect it’s all true.

      The problem is that the sheeple don’t know. And even if they did, they wouldn’t believe it.

      1. The least any of us can do is spread that video around. It’s incredible and detailed information.
        It’s not up to us to determine who will watch it or believe it. Our task is to spread it around using the best of our individual abilities. Nothing lost….much could be gained.

    1. What is the explanation for Trump’s actions and inactions?

      1. He is not aware of what is going on.
      2. He is being blackmailed along with everybody else.
      3. He is going along because he is fearful.
      4. He has no backbone.
      5. He is in on it.

      1. 3. He is going along because he is fearful.
        4. He has no backbone.

        Trump is impressed with a person’s credentials….especially the murderous phony Fauci.
        Trump uses ChloraPrep on his face because he’s obsessed with how he looks.
        NO truly confident male is that worried about how he looks [beyond the reasonable items].

        Trump is paranoid and consumed with FEAR.

      2. IMO, % of possibility

        3….’Fearful’ could also include 1, so it’s difficult to put a % on it.
        4….5-10%…he’s been tortured for close to 4 years, so there has to be a strong backbone.
        4….90-95%….This could also coincide with 2, because I feel that if he is being blackmailed, one could say he’s in on it since he could refuse the blackmail and take the risk of the consequences. If the blackmail regards his own life…well, let’s face it, we have been through that. If it’s against his family, I am sorry to say the lives of 100’s of millions must supersede members of his family.

        He’s our president whom we trusted, Therefore, he should trust us, reveal what is going on and might thereby be surprised at the support he would receive from we the people. I would surmise that if that is so and We the People were allowed to see the truth of his strategy, the support would be overwhelming to the point no deep state would dare allow themselves to be a victim of 300 + million angry and armed citizens demanding JUSTICE.

        We need transparency..especially NOW!

      3. Trump says more about the pandemic in what he does than what he says. For example he has 20 people without masks standing huddled next to him at the daily briefing: Does it look like anyone is afraid? Of course not then there’s the cryptic line when he talks about fighting an “invisible enemy”… he is telegraphing the awake while mocking the asleep… It says to me invisible means “not a real thing”… the disease being an actual pandemic verses the reality of empty hospitals and ginned up numbers.

      4. Dave, Very astute. I have not lost faith in Trump. Your observations are right on the mark. There is a great deal he can do to defeat this in short order–and I am hopeful that he will do that–and soon!

      5. If we sit around waiting for Trump and Q to save us, I am afraid we will be more than disappointed. This is a take-down of the entire planet.
        He had better have one helluva huge army to save this world.
        I pray so, but I doubt it.
        Jack Mullen’s views may be quite frightening…but that is exactly what we need.
        And believe me, I do not always agree with Mullen…

      6. Will, although I haven’t given up on Trump, I agree: We can’t wait for him to save our ass! We have to do that for ourselves. These measures are absurd medically (you quarantine the sick, not the healthy; masks recycle your CO2, which needs to be replaced with fresh oxygen) and legally (the Constitution guarantees our right to peaceful assembly and to practice the religion of our choice). We are not requires to self-isolate in our homes or to close our businesses, much less not to enjoy the beaches and parks of our states.

        Each of us must think about what we can do for freedom and liberty in the country we love. The governors are flunking the test and abusing their positions with completely unconstitutional directives and executive orders. I encourage everyone to protest, to speak out, to contact their elected representatives, including their own congressmen, senators and governors. If you have a business, consider opening. Get out and about, if you can. Take a walk and breath fresh air. Don’t let yourself be cowed. We owe it to our ancestors and to the future of the nation to do everything we can to save the nation. Those responsible must be brought to justice. A friend just wrote:

        “EXCLUSIVE: Drs. Buttar, Shiva & Mikovits BLAST Gates, Call to ARREST Fauci as Crisis CRUSHES Economy” Weigh In With Your Vote Here. Video Report Doctor Buttar Video Doctor Mikovits Video Doctor Shiva Video

      7. I keep thinking of Trump’s support of 5G and what could appear to be a very strange camaraderie with Musk who has or will put up some 40K satellites to beam 5G into our skulls.

      8. This may seem a bit or quite simplistic….it’s quite disparaging that You Tube and Google censor the alternative media, but who censors the MSM? So, the entity that needs censoring gets a pass and the entity that needs censoring the least constantly pays the price. Something is twisted there.

      9. Dr. Erickson and Bigtree need to understand that the US Media is totally corrupt. It a tool of CIA Operation Mockingbird and has been for many decades.

        FBI – Corrupt
        WHO – Corrupt
        NIH – Corrupt [DIR.Dr. Fauci…remember him?]
        CIA – Corrupt
        Political Parties USA – Corrupt
        States in USA – Corrupt
        USA TV media news – Corrupt
        The list is endless….

        The USA is THE most corrupt nation on earth.
        The President of the US is taking advice from an arch criminal…Fauci, etc.
        Nothing but horrors and mass confusion can come from all of the above.

      10. The List: continued…
        FaceBook – Corrupt
        Google-YouTube – Corrupt

        My Account at FaceBook was permanently deleted because I wrote that Sandy Hook was a hoax about Gun Control. Thousands of YouTube videos have also been deleted for showing the SAME thing…most were revealing the truth in great detail…..they have nearly all been deleted.

        Google and Wikipedia report that ALL of the hoaxes and scams of the past 12 years were REAL events and if you dare to disagree, you’re a Conspiracy Theorist and a radical kook.

  5. It will take a long time to sort through all the hacked emails of Gates Foundation, WHO If they story really is true. What will we find?

    1. So, dK…What think you of Shiva’s attack on RFK Jr?…..I just don’t get it. As far as I know, RFK Jr. has done more to expose the trash in vaccines than anyone else in the public eye. I have listened to him do so for over 20 years…When I watched TV many years ago, he used to be a regular on Imus in the morning.

      1. I don’t get why anyone who is against what is happening is going to attack anyone on our side. I think RFK really woke up when he went to get his fishing license and found out there was a mercury warning for every body of water he frequented. He traced it to relaxing the mercury emissions from power plants during Bush the Dumber’s reign of terror. But I just had another Snowflake wish that I would get Covid because I protested tyranny at the Capitol. A great number of American “men” have become virtue signaling sycophants that pretend the Bill Of Rights is optional during any crisis, when we need it more than ever. I have good news, guys. El Paso County, Colorado has made the bold decision to re-open without any restrictions. That’s the Colorado Springs area. This is major!

      2. Thanks, dK….I feel the same…we need unity and not division. Shiva is running for a sinate seat….let the mud slinging begin, eh?
        Very good to hear about El Paso County….even though it may be too late. The fear has set in to an unbelievable degree.
        I might add, we need the MSM now more than ever. As long as the small hats control that aspect, we are pretty much dead in the water. The alternative media just does not reach the multi-millions that we need to spread the truth of this despicable hoax.

    1. Yes, the UK Laws are police state in that video.
      I heard a CalTech, CA Prof last night. He did some simple calculations. The result was that its statistically easier for a person in the US to get injured or killed by lightning in an 80 yr lifetime, than it is to die of Covid19. The idea that you will die of Covid 19 are vanishingly minuscule.

      I still know of no one or even heard of anyone myself or my family knows, that have died of Covid 19 or even been sick and recovered…..this includes many hundreds of people, worldwide.

      1. hey Don… I could one up you on this… I don’t know a soul that is sick with any kind of cold. But I did you hear about the sky diver who’s chute did not open? Yup you guessed it…. Covid-19 killed him. They finally found Jimmy Hoffa and after the autopsy, you guessed it… died of a bullet hole to the head. That’s how the Covid-19 was able to enter the body.

  6. Sweden had the right idea, give us knowledge and leave it to us. A soon as I saw the media brainwashing like 91/11/2001 I knew the SARS2 is a psyop.
