The NORC OCTOBER ELECTION RESEARCH PROJECT is also unaware of some facts, biased or both about Chinese whistleblowers that are contradicting the official Chinese and WHO line about the origins of the Chinese/Wuhan Coronavirus.
During their survey they ask if the coronavirus was created in a lab. Right now the jury is out. Selecting anything except it being “false” results in a warning by NORC that it is false.
Who exactly did they consult? Are these the same experts at the WHO, CDC, Fauci et al who lied about the efficacy of masks for months? The ones who lied about the efficacy of travel bans until it was too late?
Most likely, but the NORC is doing a disservice to anyone who cares about the truth and facts by ignoring whistleblowers from China. Particularly ones like Li Wenliang who were severely punished in China for letting the world know about the virus in December. The “rumor mongers” as the Chinese called him.
Ones like Li-Meng Yan, a well respected Chinese virologist who attempted to spread the word back in December but was shut down by the Chinese government. Is the left in the US really going to shut down a whistleblower like the Chinese government does? Facebook and Twitter mark it as “false” regardless of the fact that it is still a subject of research.
Does anyone know if it was created in a lab? Yes, some scientists in China would know or not, but this is still an open question and NORC is again showing their partisan stripes and, charitably, their ignorance.
If I can decide I am going to count “2+2=4” as wrong, I can report all kinds of incorrect results.
At 2:27pm on Monday, March 30, 1981 President Reagan was shot. I was a child at the time and when I got out of schoolat 3:13pm, headed to swim practice. When I got there, I heard the coaches say that he’d been shot and was in surgery and no one knew how he was. Most of the people were upset and in shock.
Something that I still remember from that day was that one of the older kids said, “I hope he dies.” I couldn’t believe that the left wanted someone to die like that. What was a high school age kid doing thinking that and saying it like it wasn’t the unmitigated evil that it was? What were the parents teaching this kid?
Well, all over the left again this morning, we are seeing “I hope Trump dies.”
The “compassionate, civil, civilized and caring left” hoping someone dies.
What is wrong with these people?

How can you possible post that in error? This isn’t some little typo, this is a full, written guidance. It is more likely the “erroneously posted the truth.”
CNBC: CDC says it erroneously posted guidance that said coronavirus spreads through air and and travel beyond six feet
President Trump should order the FDA, CDC etc to begin administering any vaccines in production one month after Phase 3 trials begin to anyone who wishes to receive them. It would be breaking the rules, but I hope that Trump would consider ordering the CDC/FDA etc to allow the vaccines that are currently in Phase 3 trials to be administered prior to the completion of the trial, but after the first month when (IF) the trials shows they are safe during the first month. e.g. one month after the first phase of the 3rd trial, let people who want it, get it since they’ve already ordered tons of doses and they are manufacturing them now. There is really no downside since it would’ve been safely administered in phase 1, 2, and 3. I am sure there would be pushback from the bureaucracies, but it would be a smart thing to do even if it doesn’t fit the CDC/FDA etc. rules which were written for non-pandemic times. I am sure plenty of people would use such a move to attempt to hurt him for the election, but if the science said it was safe, it would make the political objections obvious. Most importantly it would help everyone if it was effective.
Today’s announcement about the 15 days to slow the spread is important. Note that this is NOT about stopping the spread. That ship sailed at the end of December 2019 or early January 2020 once it escaped (or was allowed to escape) from China.
Everyone (or some large percentage of a population) is going to get this at some point until there is herd immunity (60-70% of the population as a start) or a vaccine. The goal is to stop a short-term spike, not stop people from getting it.
Of course the same people from the WHO back in January who were saying it wasn’t being transmitted person-to-person are now advising the US government. The same people from NIH/CDC who were saying back in February that it didn’t pose a significant risk to the US population are advising them too. Ditto the same people saying masks don’t help, UNLESS you are a first responder.
If the closures were required in March [edit: and now April], what exactly will have changed by May, June or even September – no vaccine, no herd immunity, no double blind studies showing the efficacy of a treatment etc. Perhaps widespread fast and accurate testing will allow people out, but so far the testing accuracy has been lacking.
Continuing it longer than 15 or 30 days will make no difference long term unless it continues for 12-24 months without testing and then quarantining people who test positive . Shutting everything down for 1 or 2 years is tantamount to suicide for the country and the world.
Some huge portion of the world population will get it eventually unless there is a vaccine. It is just a question of when.
If this market carnage continues, by super Tuesday, Bernie Sanders won’t have anything left to loot. He’ll be so disappointed.
