    Default No spike in coronavirus in places reopening, U.S. health secretary says

    No spike in coronavirus in places reopening, U.S. health secretary says
    By Reuters, Wire Service Content May 17, 2020, at 9:24 a.m.

    Quoted below-
    Very interesting comment posted in comments section of the article...-Tyr
    What happens when 90% of the media is controlled/owned by (6) corporations?
    What happens when those same corporations are operated and controlled by a political ideology?
    What happens when the news is no longer free from bias?
    What happens when the news is no longer reliable and independent?
    What happens when the news is no longer trustworthy?
    What happens when the news simply becomes an extension/arm of a political party?
    Fact becomes fiction?
    Fiction becomes fact?
    When does news become propaganda?
    Identity creation?
    How does the average person, who is under constant financial stress (by design), find time to research and discern fact v fiction?
    Majority of people more prone to believe someone in power sitting behind a big brand ‘news’ name?
    Do people [human psyche] tend to follow the ‘majority/mainstream viewpoint’ in fear of being isolated and/or shunned?
    ‘Mainstream’ is used for a reason [dominate trend in opinion].
    [If majority of people believe ‘x’ then ‘x’ must be validated / true]
    Why do ‘mainstream’ media heads, within different orgs, always use the same keywords and/or catch phrases?
    Coordinated? By who? Outside entity providing instructions?
    Do they count on the fact that people [human psyche] are more prone to believe something if heard over-and-over again by different ‘trusted’ sources?
    Do ‘echo chamber’ tactics provide validation / credibility to the topic/point being discussed?
    Threat to intellectual freedom?
    Would control over[of] these institutions/organizations allow for the mass control of a populations viewpoint re: a desired topic?
    Read again – digest.
    Would control over[of] these institutions/organizations allow for the mass control of a populations viewpoint re: a desired topic?
    Logical thinking.
    Why, after the election of 2016, did [D]’s and media corps jumpstart a [coordinated & planned] divisive blitz intended to create falsehoods re: illegitimacy of election, character assassination of POTUS through sexism, racism, every other ‘ism’?
    Pre/post 2016 election?
    Why were violent [masked] terror orgs such as Antifa immediately created/funded?
    Why were these orgs tasked w/ immediate intimidation/shut down of any pro-POTUS rally[s] and/or events?
    Why were marches immediately organized to counter and silence pro-POTUS rally[s] and/or events?
    Why were marches immediately organized which divided people into sex/gender, race, [ism]?
    When you control the levers of news dissemination, you control the narrative.
    Control of the narrative = power
    When you are blind, what do you see?
    They want you divided.
    Divided by religion.
    Divided by sex.
    Divided by political affiliation.
    Divided by class.
    When you are divided, and angry, and controlled, you target those ‘different’ from you, not those responsible [controllers].
    Divided you are weak.
    Divided you pose no threat to their control.
    When ‘non-dogmatic’ information becomes FREE & TRANSPARENT it becomes a threat to those who attempt to control the narrative and/or stable [livestock kept – sheep].
    When you are awake, you stand on the outside of the stable (‘group-think’ collective), and have ‘free thought’.
    "Free thought" is a philosophical viewpoint which holds that positions regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or dogma.
    THIS REPRESENTS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    U.S. authorities are not yet seeing spikes in coronavirus cases in places that are reopening but it was still too early to determine such trends, health secretary Alex Azar said on Sunday.
    So he is making a statement at all why?

    The sky is not falling right now but that doesn't mean it won't

    A sad reality that so many do not see that the death count due to Corona virus has deliberately been falsely padded.
    That hospitals have been rewarded, to lie and attribute deaths to Corona virus...

    fling monkeys..lol.... on the mark...--Tyr

    I don't understand how these people just get away with ignoring science though. Most places have been reopened less than a week, A person who has this virus can be asymptomatic for up to 14 days , even if they have the virus. It is WAY too early to be making statements like "no new cases due to reopening"

    There WILL be new cases when places reopen. The question is have we sufficiently protected those who are most vulnerable to this virus?

    That's not even as high up the scale as science. That's simple, grade school math

    Maryland is already spiking, post-opening. I imagine it will just get worse over the next week. We’ll see.

    I have to agree with what STTAB posted: of course the numbers are going to spike. Fresh meat.

    But, the World can't stay on hold indefinitely. I can hardly wait until they pick a point in time to declare the economy "back on". Definitely going to test the President's business acumen.

    I keep thinking there is no good answer to this. Other than China has attacked the world. At what point do we declare war on China.

    Won't happen. Recall the recent debate with drummond? One thing I gleaned from his stance is the UK (and probably Europe and anyone else looking to blame us somehow) are buying the "wet market bat" bullshit.

    Even if China did not purposefully do it, China should be held accountable. From the start I have said every dime spent/lost on this virus should be deducted from our debt to China. Whether they like it or not.

    Yep, for all his bluster though I don't think Trump has the cajones to do that.

    One things is for sure, China is gonna work their asses off to get Biden elected

    You must have come back after my "Gunny's Conspiracy Theory" thread . It's not hard to follow that having failed to strong-arm conservatives (esp farmers) in the mid-terms, China would just come back by killing them. A lot less expensive and more hands-off efficiency.

    Either way, conspiracy or no, China HAS affected the upcoming Presidential election and put Trump in a position where one wrong move turns him to cinders.

    Yep, and every single one of the "Ermergawd Russia interfered with our election" stood idly by as China was doing exactly that , for DECADES.

    Add Diane Feinstein to the pink mist crowd.
