When not forcing liberal wealth redistribution ideology down the throats of hard-working citizens, the customary method liberal Democrats use to get Americans to obey their agenda quickly is the creation of an imaginary catastrophe.
The budget debate is an all too familiar fake crisis routinely employed by Democrats seeking money for their social engineering projects. The turmoil seems to always come with the phrase, "If the budget isn't passed (with our added extras), the government will be shut down!" And since a rational media does not exist, the American people are told of the impending calamities that await. Even though government shutdowns in the past have never caused the left's predicted disasters, the fear tactic is often enough to get Democrats all the extra pork they want.
Controlling when and how Americans get exposed to the next false crisis is the job of the Dempnets "Democrat Propaganda Networks" such as CNN, MSNBC, and The New York Times. If it helps the left, it's aired, published, and repeated. And it matters not how many times dire predictions like bogus results from a government shutdown have been proven entirely wrong. Hatred of the Constitution and the President keeps programmed individuals coming back for more comforting Kool-aid.
The history of incorrect predictions by the so-called experts is long and storied. An eye-opening post in April 2019 by Mark Perry focuses on a May 2000 issue of Reason Magazine, by award-winning science correspondent Ronald Bailey who wrote: "Earth Day, Then and Now."
Bailey's article questioned the accuracy of predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970? According to Bailey, "The prophets of doom were not simply wrong, but spectacularly wrong."
According to Bailey, some of the highlighted expert predictions in 1970 were, "By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." "Urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution."
Peter Gunter, a North Texas State University professor, wrote, "By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine."
Enter the latest "expert" predictions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. An April 2020 AIER article showed the immensely incorrect forecasts published by the Imperial College London (ICL) that predicted 2.2 million deaths in the United States. The current number of deaths in the U.S. is 99,013.
In a Real Clear Markets April 2020 article, The CDC projected that 2.4 million to 21 million people in the U.S. could end up in the hospital, overwhelming emergency wards and ICUs. As of the writing of this article, total cases in the U.S. are 1,676,460. These forecasts by the experts were both extraordinarily shocking and extremely wrong.
While running out of witchhunt investigations to fill their pages and time slots, Dempnets exploited the fears raised by such desperate estimates by attacking the President for not doing enough to save American lives.
Even though medical experts with decades of experience were massively off the mark with their predictions, Trump was supposed to see through the deceptions coming out of China and possess the unlimited resources needed to overcome poorly run state governments and a depleted Strategic National Stockpile (SNS).
The silver lining surrounding the Covid-19 cloud resides in the wakeup call to those Americans passionately following the predictions of other "experts" who give the earth less than 12 years because of Climate change.
Once again using the red flag strategy of fear.
Dempnets can be excused for their many deceptions and falsifications since they are only doing their jobs and producing what they are supposed to produce.
Scientific experts are people, and people make mistakes. However, they are also people who can be compromised as easily as any other group of people.
Perhaps before believing the climate change "experts" and begin turning back the worlds' technological clock 200 years, implementing the aggressive Green New Deal, we should look at the incredibly wrong predictions regarding this pandemic. If we can extract that nugget of wisdom from the COVID-19 affliction, then the lives lost to this virus would not have been in vain.
