Daily News Roundup
Dr. Fauci on a Sunday CNN program: “There’s no response to that craziness, Jim. Prosecute me for what? What are they talking about? I wish I could figure out what the heck they’re talking about. I think they’re just going off the deep end.”
Philip Ahlrich contributor to American Thinker: The liberal mind is highly susceptible to pathogenic suggestion. It is the last and perhaps most dangerous of the unlit caverns remaining to science regarding the psychology of radical conformist movements that contribute to the ideological colonization and overthrow of democratic systems. An organized search of its vast holding of intellectual deformities will yield countless volumes in the study of intelligence gone wrong. The liberal mind is Jung’s concept of a “collective unconscious” presenting to the world, in its unrestrained egotism and denial of psychological reality, the troubled mind of a psychopath.
Philip Ahlrich contributor to American Thinker: Evil is written upon the gateway to every liberal dream of power. Better to enlist among the generals of a new liberal order, the words are telling us, than among the legions of a free society. But there can be no tolerance for the trauma that pathocratic domination brings to the millions of good people who must turn from their just pursuits to confront the terror of pernicious indoctrination. Certainly, this is evil. There can be no agreement with its terms nor space provided for its instruction. To tolerate evil is to give it sanctuary, but to bargain with evil is to give it legitimacy.
Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Within the questions: the FBI and government apparatus had advanced knowledge of the scale of the J6 mall assembly yet doing nothing? Why were the Capitol Hill police never informed of the FBI concerns? Why didn’t House Speaker Nancy Pelosi secure the Capitol Hill complex, and why did she deny the request by President Trump to call up the national guard for security support? Why did the FBI have agent provocateurs in the crowd, seemingly stimulating rage within a peaceful crowd to enter the Capitol building? There have always been these nagging questions around ‘why’?
Timothy Wassell contributor to The American Mind: Without a revival of purpose and moral clarity, neither the free market nor the government will save America.
Rainer Zitelmann contributor to American Greatness: America is far from being a country of “unbridled capitalism.” There is far too much regulation, too much government debt to fund government redistribution programs, and too much taxation. America needs more capitalism, not less.
Joseph Pearce contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: In the final analysis, freedom is not possible without freedom of speech, and tolerance is not possible without the tolerance of texts with which we disapprove. The lack of such tolerance leads to the banning of books and the banning of people. Ultimately, so history proves, it leads to the burning of books and the mass execution of people.
Chai: Pence breaks silence on Trump and Jan. 6, throws 45 under the bus: ‘Endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol’
For those hoping for any sort of a reconciliation between former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence, nothing appears imminent. That’s because the latest salvo from Pence makes it crystal clear that the former vice president still harbors quite a bit of resentment towards Trump over what had happened on Jan. 6. […] “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable,” Pence said, breaking his relative silence on the matter. While the former vice president has always separated himself from Trump on most matters involving Jan. 6, Pence had never unveiled such vitriol and venom until Saturday night. […] Pence even took a deeply personal shot at Trump, questioning his faith. “I read that some of those classified documents they found at Mar-a-Lago were actually stuck in the president’s Bible,” Pence said. “Which proves he had absolutely no idea they were there.” [Note: One of many comments following the article – The Snake in the Garden, hiding behind praying hands.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY: GLOBALIST POLITICIANS & BIG BUSINESS ACCUMULATE MORE POWER & CONTROL
Spady: Researchers identify this mammal as latest potential cause of climate change, suggest balancing species
Researchers claim that moose are potentially a leading cause of climate change and that the species should be balanced, suggesting they are “one of the biggest potential single sources of carbon emissions from wooded parts of Norway.” The Norwegian University of Science and Technology studied moose in Norwegian forests for several years and concluded that the species have a major effect on vegetation growth and are altering the carbon cycle by dining on tree buds. “Moose are an ecosystem engineer in the forest ecosystem, and strongly impact everything from the species composition and nutrient availability in the forest. A grown animal can eat 50 kilograms of biomass each day during summer,” Gunnar Austrheim, an ecologist at the NTNU University Museum, said in a press release. Moose tend to eat birch and young samplings in clearcut forests, an act researchers claim is where the ungulates “gobble up” possible carbon storage in trees. [Note: First cows. Now Moose. What next? People? Already happening.]

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE FIRST AMENDMENT
Unruh: Now parents texting own kids to do chores could go to jail
A civil and religious rights organization has issued a warning to the public about a new precedent for “harassment,” a precedent under which a parent repeatedly texting a child over undone chores could end up in jail. The warning comes from the Rutherford Institute and results from the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court not to address a Texas law regarding electronic harassment. “The government must not be given the power to criminalize speech it deems distasteful or annoying,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “Nowhere in the First Amendment does it permit the government to limit speech in order to avoid causing offense or hurting someone’s feelings, protect government officials from criticism, discourage bullying, penalize hateful ideas, combat prejudice and intolerance, and the like.” The Texas law has been described as “so vague and overreaching as to make it illegal for a parent to repeatedly text a teen child about neglected chores.”

Pearce: The Tolerance of Texts
We live in an age of censorship. Books are being banned, if not outright then at least from the school curriculum. They are not being burned, at least not officially, but that will be their fate when they are no longer tolerated on library shelves. For those of us who have read George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, this is all a little creepy. In that book, the Ministry of Truth is responsible for removing all traces of the ideas of the past from the public’s perception. Even the language is manipulated and altered into something called “newspeak” in which antiquated ideas and words are banished. And then there is the widespread use of “doublethink”, in which self-contradictory thought processes are used as a means of self-indoctrination. Orwell was inspired to write Nineteen Eighty-Four as a cautionary satire on the totalitarian regimes that were rampant in the last century: Nazism, fascism and communism. In each of these secular fundamentalist tyrannies, “newspeak” was employed to keep all public discourse within the limits imposed by ideological constraints, whereas “doublethink” was the means by which the logical absurdities inherent in ideological precepts could be kept in place. This was achieved by government coercion, the ministries or departments of “Truth” being the agents and agencies of propaganda. Let’s fast forward to our own time.

Grant: Amy Wax and Academic Freedom
The investigation into the polarizing law professor violates the most basic tenets of academic freedom. […] One of the central complaints in Ruger’s letter is that Wax’s speech in the classroom and in public “leads reasonable students to conclude that they will be judged and evaluated based on their race, ethnicity, gender, national status, or sexual orientation rather than their academic performance and ‘true merit.’” He quotes students who believe “it is ‘impossible to fathom’ that Wax will ‘treat non-conservative, not-white students fairly.’” This seems concerning. But plenty of faculty around the country, and at Penn, express strong views about the merits of the demographic groups into which their students fall. In 2021, Anthea Butler, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Penn, published a book titled White Evangelical Racism which is mentioned in her bio on the department’s website. The book’s thesis is that “Racism is a feature, not a bug, of American evangelicalism,” and Butler concludes her historical review by speaking directly to her subjects: “Evangelicals,” she writes, “you have a problem. That problem is racism.” This racism, she argues, “is hurting others. Your racism is actively engaging in killing bodies and souls.” […] The Wax affair represents an even more clear-cut case of academic freedom. As of this writing, no unrelated policy violation has been alleged that might offer a pretext for her firing. If she is sanctioned, it will be as a result of the views she has expressed and nothing else. This puts those of us who believe in free speech in the difficult position of defending someone whose views we may not like (much like the ACLU). But, that the content of Wax’s comments is difficult to defend is exactly why they need to be defended from university sanction by believers in academic liberty. The bounds of academic freedom have always been contentious by definition, and shrinking the sphere of acceptable speech will only serve to position other current and future scholars closer to the edge than they previously thought they were. […] Freedom for a professor like Amy Wax ensures freedom for everyone.

Jewell: Michigan Supreme Court Considers Forcing Judges To Use Preferred Pronouns For Attorneys, Litigants
The Michigan Supreme Court sent a notice on January 18 that it was considering an amendment to Rule 1.109 of the Michigan Court Rules to force courts to comply with attorneys’ and parties’ desired pronouns in speech and in writing. Now, over a dozen Michigan judges and attorneys have expressed concern for what the rule’s implications would mean for free speech and religious liberty. “Parties and attorneys may … include any personal pronouns in the name section of the caption, and courts are required to use those personal pronouns when referring to or identifying the party or attorney, either verbally or in writing,” the proposed rule states. […] Michigan judges and attorneys are writing to the court and speaking out about the problematic amendment. In an eight-page response to the proposed rule, William R. Bloomfield, general counsel for the Diocese of Lansing, said that it would be a direct violation of the First Amendment. “In brief, requiring courts, i.e., judges, to use a person’s own designated personal pronouns is . . . […] The Michigan Supreme Court is receiving comments on the proposed change to Rule 1.109 through May 1.

Solomon: Biden administration faces bipartisan criticism as regulators rush to stave off banking crisis
Amid bipartisan criticism it was too slow to act, the Biden administration is accelerating efforts to stave off an epic financial crisis as regulators seized control of a newly failed bank in New York while assuring account holders at the shuttered Silicon Valley Bank in California their money will be protected and made available soon. […] “Today we are taking decisive actions to protect the U.S. economy by strengthening public confidence in our banking system,” the agencies said in a joint statement. “This step will ensure that the U.S. banking system continues to perform its vital roles of protecting deposits and providing access to credit to households and businesses in a manner that promotes strong and sustainable economic growth.” The statement came as officials disclosed that Signature Bank had failed and was being seized by regulators in New York. With more than $110 billion in assets, Signature Bank is one of the largest bank failures in U.S. history behind the $175 billion Silicon Valley Bank that collapsed last week. [Note: You may recall that Signature Bank cut ties with President Trump after January 6, 2021]

Wilkie: Wall Street — not taxpayers — will pay for the SVB and Signature deposit relief plans
Plans announced Sunday to fully reimburse deposits made in the collapsed Silicon Valley Bank and the shuttered Signature Bank will rely on Wall Street and large financial institutions — not taxpayers — to foot the bill, Treasury officials said. “For the banks that were put into receivership, the FDIC will use funds from the Deposit Insurance Fund to ensure that all of its depositors are made whole,” said a senior Treasury Department official, who spoke to reporters Sunday about the plan on the condition of anonymity. “The Deposit Insurance Fund is bearing the risk,” the official emphasized. “This is not funds from the taxpayer.”

Pound: Silicon Valley Bank is shut down by regulators in biggest bank failure since global financial crisis
Financial regulators have closed Silicon Valley Bank and taken control of its deposits, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. announced Friday, in what is the largest U.S. bank failure since the global financial crisis more than a decade ago. The collapse of SVB, a key player in the tech and venture capital community, leaves companies and wealthy individuals largely unsure of what will happen to their money. According to press releases from regulators, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation closed SVB and named the FDIC as the receiver. The FDIC in turn has created the Deposit Insurance National Bank of Santa Clara, which now holds the insured deposits from SVB.

“We are also announcing a similar systemic risk exception for Signature Bank, New York, New York, which was closed today by its state chartering authority,” the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said in a joint statement Sunday evening. The banking regulators said depositors at Signature Bank will have full access to their deposits, a move similar to that which was made to ensure depositors at the failed Silicon Valley Bank will get their money back.

Jackson: Sorry Silicon Valley: SVB’s Collapse Is Not a Big Deal
In a world in which finance has become dizzyingly complex and specialties have grown ever narrower, it is refreshing to observe a classic bank run in the form of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse. SVB is a holding company containing a broker-dealer and a bank. Only the banking component appears to have failed. This is the second largest bank failure in U.S. history, and in a weakening economy, panic has set in. SVB’s downturn coincided with widespread decline in banking stocks and for good reason. Around half of all VC-backed startups do business with SVB. It is a critical player in biotech, cybersecurity, and social media, but really the name says it all: it was the most important publicly traded bank specializing in Silicon Valley. SVB was so ubiquitous that startups were encouraged or felt pressure to work with the bank to gain access to venture capital. A classic bank has short-term deposits and long-term assets. Depositors loan their money to the bank for an interest rate payment. That bank loans that money to fund useful projects that earn a higher interest rate payment. As long as the depositors do not withdraw their funds, the bank earns a profit. The deposits are liabilities to the bank and the loans are assets to the bank. Almost every single bank in the world uses “fractional reserve banking” in which only a fraction of cash deposits are retained in the bank at a given point in time. If enough depositors withdraw their funding at once, then the bank collapses. If key depositors withdraw their funds from the bank, that can scare other depositors into withdrawing their money from the bank, ultimately resulting in a state regulator to call in the bank and call in the FDIC. […] So, why not worry? One reason not to worry is that how a bank fails matters.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY
(Biden crime family) Lifson: House Oversight Committee has: ‘documents that show just exactly how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party’
Documentary proof of an American president getting paid off by our greatest strategic rival, if not enemy, is no small matter. James Comer, chair of the House Oversight Committee, said some pretty important things yesterday, appearing on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News Channel. Despite being stonewalled by Janet Yellen over release of Suspicious Activity Reports from banks about Hunter Biden’s transactions, he has gotten evidence about Biden family receipt of money from the CCP. What encourages me about his revelation is that there now are key forces within the Democrat establishment (which includes the legacy media) that see Joe Biden as a problem to be removed. His worsening dementia is becoming impossible to hide and his (really Dr. Jill’s?) determination to run for re-election seems likely to doom not only the presidential prospects of the party, but its congressional prospects.

Taibbi: My Statement to Congress
Chairman Jordan, ranking member Plaskett, members of the Select Committee, My name is Matt Taibbi. I’ve been a reporter for over 30 years, and an advocate for the First Amendment. Much of that time was spent at Rolling Stone magazine. Over my career, I’ve had the good fortune to be recognized for the work I love. I’ve won the National Magazine Award, the I.F. Stone Award for independent journalism, and written ten books, including four New York Times bestsellers. I’m now the editor of the online magazine Racket, on the independent platform Substack. I’m here today because of a series of events that began late last year, when I received a note from a source online. It read: “Are you interested in doing a deep dive into what censorship and manipulation… was going on at Twitter?” […] The First Amendment, and an American population accustomed to the right to speak, is the best defense left against the Censorship-Industrial Complex. If the latter can knock over our first and most important constitutional guarantee, these groups will have no serious opponent left anywhere. If there’s anything the Twitter Files show, it’s that we’re in danger of losing this most precious right, without which all other democratic rights are impossible.

McFall: China flexes muscles in Latin America in latest security challenge to US
Over the past two decades, China has ramped up its economic ties with nations across Latin America, but it is China’s rising influence in the region that has Washington increasingly concerned. The growing threat China poses to the U.S. has moved ever forward in the American conscious as defense officials and lawmakers continue to monitor emerging trends from Beijing’s burgeoning relationships worldwide. China’s quiet expansion in the southern hemisphere has increasingly caught the attention of U.S. defense officials and lawmakers, including Florida Republican Rep. María Elvira Salazar, who last month drew attention to growing security threats emerging from Latin America.

The House Foreign Affairs panel’s first oversight hearing on what happened leading up to and after the U.S. end to a more than 20-year war featured emotional and graphic testimony from a Marine injured in the bombing at the Abbey Gate at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. Lawmakers also heard from a young Army medic who is still haunted by images of trying to save his fellow soldiers killed during that attack.

Sundance: The Insufferable Samantha Power Now Focuses on Georgia, Bordering Russia
Having planted the seed for color revolution in Hungary, a European country that doesn’t want expanded war with Russia – therefore the U.S. needs to change the democracy, now Samantha Power moves to another European country for the same reason. This time it’s Georgia. Georgia legislature recently passed a bill saying all funding for foreign intervention in the country’s politics, via Non-Governmental Agencies (NGO’s), needs to be made public and the funding registered as foreign agent lobbying. Essentially, the proposed Georgia law would mirror the U.S. Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). However, because the U.S. is the funding mechanism for the anti-government agencies that operate within the country, the United States is against the effort. To make sure the U.S. can continue to covertly manipulate the political outcomes, the groups supported by Samantha Power attacked Parliament.

Ballasy: Federal workers owe $1.5B in back taxes after GOP remedies die under Democrat legislative control
Federal workers with outstanding tax bills numbered 149,000, and their combined tax debt totaled $1.5 billion as of 2021, according to a new Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration audit, as legislative remedies for the problem proposed by Republican lawmakers over more than decade have gone nowhere. Finding that “the number of delinquent Federal civilian employees has increased by 32% from Fiscal Years (FY) 2015 to 2021” and their “related balances due” have increased by almost 36%, the IG report concluded that the IRS has failed to adequately prioritize delinquent federal works for compliance.
[…] According to a Government Executive report, the IRS is required to fire employees who are “willfully out of tax compliance” under a 1998 law. In 2021, Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) introduced the Federal Employees and Retirees with Delinquent Debt Initiative, which would have prohibited federal workers with an unpaid tax liability from employment with the federal government. The bill never came to a vote in the Democrat-led Senate.

(An interesting read) Sundance: The Parliamentary Motive Behind the J6 Fedsurrection
Long time CTH reader “Regitiger” has spent a great deal of time reviewing the entire process, looking at the granular timeline and then overlaying the bigger picture of the constitutional and parliamentary process itself. What follows below is a brilliant analysis of the federal government motive to create a J6 crisis that permitted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to trigger an emergency session and avoid the 2020 election certification challenges. Those congressional floor challenges, known and anticipated well in advance of the morning of January 6, 2021, would have formed a legal and constitutional basis for ‘standing’ in judicial challenges that would have eventually reached the Supreme Court. The certification during “emergency session” eliminated the problem for Washington DC. Regitiger explains below, only edited by me for clarity and context: I think most, not all, but a large number of people, are totally missing what happened; and why this happened on Jan 6th. I am going to try my best to outline the events that day, blast past the commonly held assumptions and get right down to the core corruption. I will present this as a series of questions and answers…

Reese: Parents Fight Elite High School’s Lottery System Used To Increase Diversity
Philadelphia parents are pushing back against a prestigious high school’s lottery admissions system aimed at increasing diversity among students, according to The Wall Street Journal. In the 2021-2022 school year, Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School, a top-rated magnet school that frequently places graduates at Ivy League universities, shifted along with other Philadelphia special-admission schools from a merit-based admissions process to a lottery system, according to the WSJ. Parents within the district are challenging the new admissions process, releasing a 51-page-report detailing how the school district is being “systematically dismantled” from the switch. […] “The only compassionate way to bridge the achievement gap is to focus on raising the floor to help the students who are falling behind, not lowering the ceiling for the few who are thriving,” Eric Santoro, a parent of two Masterman students, told the WSJ.

On Friday, The Post Millennial contributor Savanah Hernandez posted a conversation she had with a student at the University of Texas at Austin and as he tried to explain his “white privilege” to her, “she decided to take the opportunity to deprogram him in live time.” “I grew up as a white man and you’re the exact opposite, you know? And so it’s like, my experiences are gonna be different from yours,” he said. “How come?” Hernandez immediately asked. “I think, you know, there’s a thing of, like, white privilege,” he answered. She then asked, “What privileges do you have that I don’t have?” And left the student stumped.

Crawford: JUST IN: Newly Released Bodycam Footage Shows Moment Before White, 25-Yr-Old Was Fatally Shot By 5 Salt Lake City Police During Traffic Stop [VIDEO]
On March 1, a 25-year-old man named Chase Allan was shot and killed by police officers during a traffic stop in a Utah suburb. On Wednesday, bodycam footage was released that shows the leadup to the officers opening fire on Allan’s car. Allan was pulled over in his BMW by police in Farmington, a Salt Lake City suburb, around 3:20 pm after an officer spotted his illegal license plate. After pulling Allan over, an officer walked up to the vehicle and tapped on the driver-side window. Allan, who was holding a cell phone, cracked the window open. The officer told Allan, “The reason you were stopped today is there is no registration on your vehicle.” “I don’t need registration, and I don’t answer questions,” Allan responded.

Mix: Teamster Kingpin Hurls Vitriol at 74% of Michigan Voters
If overwhelming public opposition were sufficient to halt the drive to repeal Michigan’s decade-old Right to Work law that Big Labor political operatives launched a few months ago, this lobbying blitz would already be at a standstill by now. On February 13, Michigan journalist Bruce Walker filed a story for the Center Square news service publicly announcing the results of a scientific online poll conducted by SurveyUSA, a national pollster with an “A” rating from the FiveThirtyEight web site.The SurveyUSA poll found that 74% of Michigan’s registered voters support retention of their Right to Work law, which prohibits terminating employees merely because they refuse to fork over dues or fees to a union they personally have chosen not to join, but which wields monopoly-bargaining power over compensation and discipline matters in their workplace. Just 14% of registered voters support the return of forced union financial support as a job condition. The poll also showed that opposition to union bosses’ bid to destroy Right to Work is very strong among Michigan voters regardless of their political party affiliation, gender, age, race, employment status, education level, or where they live in the state.

Butler: Pope Francis calls Catholic Church’s ban on priests having sex ‘temporary’ opening door to review of 1,000-year-old celibacy rules
Celibacy was made a requirement by the Catholic Church in the 11th-century for financial reasons, as clergy without children were more likely to leave their wealth to the church. The Vatican enforces the rule among priests – but there are growing calls to end the ban. It comes after Germany’s Catholic Church voted for a resolution requesting that the Pope end the obligation for priests to be celibate.

Raw Egg Nationalist: State of Emergency
El Salvador shows us our future. Bukele’s crackdown on the drug gangs, especially the Barrio 18 and MS-13 gangs, began with a congress-approved state of emergency that has temporarily suspended certain constitutional rights. […] Despite their pledges and tough talk, our leaders only fudge numbers, redefine what counts as “serious crime,” or they just ignore the issue. Perhaps that’s because a certain level of crime is politically useful in the maintenance of the current system, and useful in upholding the status quo. This seems true of both sides of today’s political spectrum; although it’s also true, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the natural political home of the criminal is on the Left. This was noted by Oswald Spengler in The Hour of Decision when he spoke of how “the work-shy rabble of the cities which is ready to plunder and murder” was the main social grouping the Bolsheviks had appealed to, and not the proletariat, since at least the Paris Commune of 1871. “Unemployment,” he wrote, “was positively fostered by Marxism.” To see this in action, I can think of no better book to read than the memoirs of General Pyotr Wrangel, Always with Honour. Wrangel, a general in the White Army during the Russian Civil War, describes how the Bolsheviks emptied the jails and asylums in order to swell their ranks with bloodthirsty fanatics who would happily dig the graves of the old regime and its supporters. Sam Francis noticed this phenomenon a little over thirty years ago and called it “anarcho-tyranny,” a descent into a kind of managed chaos. The state allows particular forms of lawlessness to flourish, largely unimpeded, to ensure effective regime control, mainly of the tax-producing middle classes who are scared straight and unable to offer effective resistance. The means by which this managed chaos is achieved are numerous, and not simply restricted to the fostering of crime: . . .

(H/T AA) Bryant: Italy 2020: Inside Covid’s Ground Zero
Three years ago the Western World came to a standstill. The official Covid-19 narrative depicted a strange suddenly-super-spreading, deadlier-than-flu virus hailing from China that landed in Northern Italy. On February 20, 2020 the first alleged case of Covid-19 was discovered in the West in the Lombardy town of Codogno, Italy. Later that day the Italian government reported their first “Covid-19 death.” Dramatic media reports emerging from Northern Italy were hammered into and onto the Western psyche giving the impression there was a mysterious “super spreading” and “super lethal” novel virus galloping across the region infecting and killing scores of people. Harrowing reports out of Bergamo, a city in the alpine Lombardy region of Northern Italy, spoke of coffins stacked high, “covid-related deaths growing relentlessly” and the alarming need for military assistance to remove the grim volume of dead bodies piling up.
In early March 2020 hospitals in Northern Italy were reporting a “tsunami of deaths” due to the Covid crisis and overcrowded conditions due to “fighting the coronavirus outbreak” , which were pushing hospitals and staff to the breaking point as doctors were “taking the dead from morning until night.”
Using the entire machinery of the state, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte began issuing a rolling set of government decrees culminating in Italy becoming the first country in the world to implement a national lockdown. These mandates would set the stage for lockdowns throughout the Western world.
Three years later a comprehensive evaluation of the story about the alleged Italian medical emergency in Spring 2020, reveals a tale of the disturbing epidemiological history of Northern Italy, mass media manipulation and deceptive reporting utilized to create the illusion of a new epidemic.
