In Germany, German ministry hired scientists to induce corona fear:
At the beginning of last year, the German Ministry of the Interior worked with several scientists on a strategy to increase fear of corona, in order to foster understanding for drastic corona measures. The newspaper Die Welt reports this on the basis of a leaked email exchange.
Minister of the Interior Seehofer and the scientists involved have so far not responded. Opposition parties demand clarification.
The emails date from March and April 2020, when Germany was in the first lockdown. Seehofer was concerned about easing too quickly and instructed his State Secretary Markus Kerber to come up with a plan to create support for more stringent measures.
We know similar propaganda happened in USA through improper PCR tests which were knowingly used to inflate “case” numbers; MSM and Dems played along. Death statistics were also falsified to include the mere possibility of covid as “died from covid” rather than “died with covid” or, more honestly, died of something else.
In New York, Gov Cuomo hid damning information about deaths among nursing home patients. The particulars of this story are just breaking but we already knew that Cuomo had deliberately not used the emergency hospital at Javits Center or the hospital ship docked near the city, both supplied by his political nemesis Donald Trump.
It wouldn’t have looked good back then to give Trump a win with the hospitals, just as later it wouldn’t have looked good to admit thousands died for Cuomo’s career. Even more cynically, the resultant large death figures were used to mandate lockdowns which destroyed much of New York’s economy.
UPDATE: Gov. DeSantis Tells Biden: “Go Fuck Yourself”
DeSantis told Dr. Fauci he trusted his own state health authorities over financially incentivized federal officials.
“How much do you stand to earn from these vaccines, Dr. Fauci? And, Joe, if you continue with this course of action, I will authorize the state National Guard to protect the movement of Floridians,” DeSantis said.
“Address me as Mr. President or President Biden,” Biden said.
“I will not, and you can go fuck yourself,” DeSantis said before hanging up.
