The Liberal One Solution Propaganda Message

Published

on

Health issues are very personal and also very individualized. That fact is why the best recommendation concerning any health issues is that the decision around health should be made in consultation with your doctor.  

However, the liberal media and the liberal agenda continue to push a narrative that they have one and only one solution. The first solution during the pandemic was to shut everything down except for the things that they wanted to leave open, Amazon, Home Depots, and strip clubs. Next, the liberal one solution was the idea of masks. “It is the law” to wear a mask, even though no laws were ever created – only mask mandates by executives and local government health departments. Although masks may be okay, they have not proven to be effective or beneficial other than making liberals feel more secure and like they are doing something. The note on the mask box states that they are not effective in preventing disease.   

The New One Solution: 

Now, the liberal solution is the vaccination.  A recent propaganda piece on CNN that proclaims to answer the questions people might be asking about Covid19 is an agenda piece to communicate the one solution of the vaccine and how “bad” others are have not yet been vaccinated.

The article by Katia Hetter is not a health article, but rather it is a propaganda piece designed to scare and guilt people into following along with the liberal one solution model. The article starts with the statement, “with Covid-19 infections at their highest levels since January and hospitalizations at a level not seen since the winter surge, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending indoor masking even for vaccinated people. While new studies show that the Covid-19 vaccines continue to provide excellent protection against severe disease, the data suggest there may be decreased protection against the Delta variant.

There are many people who are fully vaccinated and want to be responsible members of society. They are wondering, what can and should they continue to do? What about getting together with friends, dining indoors, and going to the gym? Can vaccinated grandparents still get together with their unvaccinated grandchildren?”

Propaganda Is Not News or Facts

Let’s do a little fact-checking on the first propaganda statement.

“With Covid-19 Infections at the highest levels since January and hospitalizations at a level not seen since the winter surge” –

Fact Check – Propaganda and Misleading!

According to a report by John Hopkins University reported on liberal MSNBC stated – “Covid cases are still on the rise in the U.S., but the pace of infections is showing signs of slowing, especially in some of the states that have been hit hardest by the delta variant. Though cases have climbed to their highest level since January at an average of 152,000 per day over the last week, the pace of the rise in new infections has substantially slowed over the last two weeks, data compiled by Johns Hopkins University shows. New cases increased by 11% over the last week, almost a third of the seven-day jump of 30% just two weeks ago, according to the data.” 

While new studies show that the Covid-19 vaccines continue to provide excellent protection against severe disease,”

Fact Check – Propaganda and Misleading!

According to her own article and the statement made by Dr. Leana Wen, the vaccine only works when a person is around other vaccinated people. Dr. Wen states – “We need to think about the vaccine as a very good raincoat. If it’s drizzling outside — if the level of infection isn’t very high — the vaccines will protect very well. But if it’s a constant thunderstorm, then there’s a higher chance of getting wet. A vaccinated person is at higher risk when surrounded by a lot of people who could be infected with Covid-19, and that’s what occurring throughout the US right now.” So, a normal non-biased person might ask, does the vaccine work or not? Shouldn’t the vaccine work around all people, and what level of unvaccinated people does the vaccine cease to work? These comments are out of the liberal playbook of shaming to make people feel better than others and to watch out for “all” of those other people passing along Covid19 to others. Might one question that the Covid19 vaccine could actually make a person more susceptible to Covid19, and could it be that is not the unvaccinated that are the only ones spreading the disease?  

Next, the propaganda statement is made “There are many people who are fully vaccinated and want to be responsible members of society.”

Fact Check – Propaganda and Misleading!

This propaganda statement indicates that if you have not been vaccinated for any reason, you are not a responsible member of society. Many responsible members of society have chosen not to get vaccinated for various reasons. This statement is designed to shame and guilt, not teach and inspire.  

The article then continues with statements made by CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen, a policy hack as a visiting professor of health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health.

Dr. Wen goes on to state, “the vast majority of the spread of Covid-19 is by people who are unvaccinated. Vaccinated people are not a threat to public health, and they should be able to exercise their own judgment about what activities are safe enough for them.”

Fact Check – Propaganda and Misleading!

The disease is spreading, which is what Covid19 does. It is spread by both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. You can be vaccinated and still get Covid19, and you can get vaccinated and still give Covid19 to others. Dr. Wen herself states later in the article proof of this point when she states, “Others might be pretty healthy themselves, but don’t want to be asymptomatic carriers who could transmit Covid-19 to their vulnerable family members.” So you can have the Covid19 vaccine and still be an asymptomatic carrier to others.”

Finally, the recommendation is made to only socialize with people who have been vaccinated in a “pandemic pod.” 

Fact Check – Propaganda and Misleading! 

The CNN article states, “Last fall and winter, people formed pandemic pods. Would you recommend doing this again? Dr. Wen’s response: For some people, yes, I would…People in similar situations, who have a similar approach when it comes to caution in their lives, could decide to form a pandemic pod with one another. They could decide to socialize only others in the same pod indoors. My family has done this with another family that has young, unvaccinated children. That makes childcare, carpooling, and playdates easier. I’d also advise others to consider the level of caution other households have before deciding to get together indoors with them.” So, although the propaganda piece wants to separate people into groups of the vaccinated and unvaccinated, the doctor herself admits to having “unvaccinated” children in her pandemic pod.  

Responsible members of society seek truth and respect a difference of opinions. Most Americans desire to know the facts around Covid19 and the vaccines. As long as CNN and the liberal media continue to push propaganda pieces, they show their irresponsibility, and they create more of a lack of trust around actual data and facts.

Education

Make Universities Accountable for Predatory Student Loan Abuse

Published

on

The Biden administration is still talking about delivering on the President’s promise to relieve student loan debt for many Americans. There is continuing discussion on how much debt should be forgiven, how to pay for it, and whether it is fair to all those who have diligently and painfully worked to already pay off their own student loans. After all, if you’re going to eliminate student debt to buy votes, why just limit it to student debt?

Unfortunately for Biden, according to numerous sources including National Review, the executive branch has no generalized power to forgive any amount of student debt. Even Nancy Pelosi confirmed simply that “the president can’t do it. That’s not even a discussion.” The Department of Education came to the same verdict, determining that the executive branch “does not have the statutory authority to cancel, compromise, discharge, or forgive, on a blanket or mass basis, principal balances of student loans, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.”

Of course, even if he had the authority, forgiving student debt doesn’t make the debt go away. Reality has a way of breaking into such “freeloading” dreams. It’s pay me now, or somebody else pay me later. But why should some future taxpayer pay off anyone else’s student debt?

Whatever happened to wise warnings of “student beware.” When you get an education and agree to pay the tuition, you ought to realize that you must at some point pay for that education. You signed on the bottom line. Face your real-world responsibilities. Hopefully, you picked a degree major that will ensure a career capable of paying off your loans. Students clearly have some responsibility, but what about the universities that took advantage of the money coming from those loans?

After all, there is ample evidence that student tuitions exploded far faster than inflation when government funds became readily available for student loans. Complaints of excessive tuition increases by students trapped in their programs tended to be met with a less than caring response—pound sand!

Since 2008, the tuition cost or a four-year college degree has increased nearly 25%. In that same period, student debt has doubled, increasing by 107%. 2015 study found that a dollar of subsidized student loans results in a published tuition increase of 58 cents at a typical university, An NBER paper suggests that changes to federal student loans are more than sufficient to explain tuition increases at private nonprofit colleges. And a 2014 study found that for-profit colleges eligible for federal student aid charged tuition 78% higher than that of similar but aid-ineligible institutions.

In short, there is no doubt that tuition was rising faster than the inflation level. Evidence has been clear for decades. In 1987, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett argued that “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities to raise their tuition, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.”

Bennett pointed out in 1987 that federal student aid had risen 57 percent since 1980, while inflation had been 26 percent. A 2020 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office brought the numbers up to date: “Between 1995 and 2017, the balance of outstanding federal student loan debt increased more than sevenfold, from $187 billion to $1.4 trillion (in 2017 dollars).” What is the lesson? The more federal aid to students is available colleges raise tuition more. Salaries rise and bureaucracies expand. There are more courses, more dorms, dining halls, lavish recreational centers, and more money for endowments.

Far too many students find that once they begin their education, their schools raise the tuition at such a high rate that their debt explodes. The university builds their endowment, and the “trapped” student is compelled to finish what they started at a cost they did not expect to have to pay. In such a situation, should not the university be responsible for any increased cost above the increase in cost of living during the same time? It’s time for universities to take responsibility for their share of student debt.

The universities that benefited from these loans should have a part in footing the bill. That means universities that raked in millions to inflate endowments should be holding the bag for those who can’t afford to pay their loans. With universities holding hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-free endowments, any government program to relieve student debt should be completely dependent on taxing those university endowments.

It’s time to counter the Democrats’ vote-buying scheme by making lasting changes to the student loan process. That means putting universities on the hook for their predatory behavior. That will go much further than a temporary payoff that does nothing to solve what is causing the problem.

Tucker: Why are they so angry?

There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more.

Published

on

Tucker gives an extended list of several people who were arrested or had their homes raided, without explanation, for no crime. Highlights include:

“Why have a political debate when you can just arrest people who disagree with you? And that has happened, far below the media radar since the day Joe Biden was elected, and tonight we want to show you … a litany, a list of Americans who have been arrested, detained by federal law enforcement on the orders of the Biden administration, not because they committed recognizable crimes but because they disagreed with the political aims of the Biden administration.”

“Ooh, Trumps a fascist, remember that? Did Trump’s DOJ raid the homes of a lot of journalists who embarrassed his children? No, you don’t remember that, because it didn’t happen. But Joe Biden’s justice department has done that, and then they kept going.”

“We don’t arrest people for ignoring congressional subpoenas, especially when they cite executive privilege, a principal that has a long history in American history, so no, we’ve never done that, but we can do it now because it was ‘an insurrection’, an insurrection that wasn’t armed, wasn’t planned, it didn’t actually insurrect anything, but it was still an insurrection. Now you’re beginning to see why it’s been so important from the very first day for the media to describe what happened on January 6 not as a riot, but as an insurrection, because if it’s an insurrection, they can violate your civil rights.”

“So, a decade ago the Obama administration was caught sending automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Congress wanted to know more about this. Eric Holder, then the attorney general, had a key role in this, ‘operation fast and furious’, you may remember it. So, they subpoena’d him, and he ignored the subpoena, and the media applauded, he was taking a noble position. But when Steve Bannon or Peter Navarro tried to do something like that, they went to jail. Again, we had this exact same thing happen in public ten years ago. A federal judge ruled that Holder’s privilege claim was not legitimate, and he was still never arrested, but the rules have changed. Why is that?”

“There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more. The media think you should be sent to jail if you show disrespect, and so of course, with no media to push back against unconstitutional overreach, the justice department kept going.”
