CDC Hiding Data From the Public – Not Ready for Prime Time?

The CDC isn’t even hiding the fact that it has been less than forthcoming with its COVID-19 data. As a matter of fact, they are admitting that much of the data was hidden because of a fear that the data would be “misinterpreted.”

Needless to say, this has caused plenty of people to become even more doubtful of the information that the CDC presents to Americans. It’s kind of hard to accept that they are not telling us everything to protect us. However, there was the CDC publicly proclaiming that this data is just “not ready for prime time.”

This is not a television show. It’s real life. This data they are hiding is supposedly what they have used to give us advice for the last two years.

We’ve included a great discussion about this below. We want to hear what you think? Is the CDC being honest here?

 

Scary Times in America as Even Discussing Vaccines is Taboo – Censorship Here to Stay?

There is little doubt that the world has changed over the last couple of years. We now live in a world where a former American president is banned from Twitter and Facebook social media platforms. Many may not think that is a bad thing, but it does set one amazing precedent.  Under the guise of stopping Donald Trump from making social media posts that encouraged violence, Big Tech, one very potent tentacle of what we refer to here at the CSC as the establishment, neutered Trump’s insane hold over his base.  Meanwhile, heads of state for terrorist organizations and rogue nations Tweet at will. Their message apparently does not offend the establishment as badly.

Even if we can all agree that getting Donald Trump off of social media is a net positive for the world as a whole, this act seems to have changed the game for what is free speech and what is not free speech. The other major factor there is, of course, COVID-19. It started when sites like Facebook and YouTube were not allowing videos that questioned the effectiveness of vaccines, masks, mandates and lockdowns. They banned content about the possibility that COVID is a lab leak. Later, that theory turned out to be quite the opposite of misinformation. Now, it is talked about openly on major networks as it is now considered to be the most likely possibility for how COVID came to be.

Joe Rogan is probably profiting from all these labels of misinformation.

So what’s the next frontier for this unique brand of censorship that we are watching take hold with very little resistance? You can see the beginnings in the events happening now.  Joe Rogan’s extremely popular podcast on Spotify is being targeted big time. Now, Rogan’s brand of podcast isn’t for everyone, and some of the company he keeps and the ideas he allows to be discussed are a little out there. Does that mean he is spreading misinformation? What is misinformation?

Is discussing topics that are obviously unknowns misinformation? We now have the CDC saying that wearing cloth masks is little more than last-ditch effort at protection and highly ineffective. Plenty of people were censored for saying this for the last two years. We now know that if you are considered “fully vaccinated” but not boosted, you are not sporting a whole lot of protection just months out, especially from the Omicron variant. So why argue about vaccination cards if the current legal definition doesn’t even make a difference? But to say this makes you guilty of spreading misinformation.

If spreading misinformation should get you censored, then shouldn’t the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci be the first to get the label. After all, almost everything they told us from day one was incorrect. Yes, some of this is because the situation was ever evolving, but I think any reasonable person can probably see that Fauci often doctored his answers for what he thought the much less intelligent minions should hear. When he said no one needed to wear a mask, he was doing it to leave masks for health care professionals. So he told a little lie to stop people from panicking and hoarding masks. But isn’t that misinformation? Or how when he said that if we could just get 60 or 70% of the American population vaccinated, we could achieve “herd immunity.” He actually admitted openly on national television that he never believed that and only said it to make the goal seem more achievable thinking it would encourage more people to get vaccinated.

How about the emails that have now been released where everyone in Fauci’s circle immediately recognized COVID-19 as a lab leak and not a naturally-occurring virus? Yes, the mainstream media buried this as much they could, or left only right-wing talking boxes to jump all over it so it would have no credibility. The information is out there though, and the reality is that Fauci used funding to shut those people down. A little more misinformation.

If Joe Rogan wants to have a doctor on that says the vaccines are a joke, what’s wrong with that? He’s not in a position of authority like Fauci. Healthy debate should never be discouraged, and it’s not misinformation to question whether the vaccines are all they are cracked up to be. The overflowing hospitals ought to show that without any real discussion anyway. We were told it is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated. If that were so, then why are the vaccinated so concerned? Because of other variants that might come along? Well, as long as people all over the world have not had a single dose of vaccine while we give people their third and fourth shots, the variants aren’t going anywhere.

Another question is why the establishment doesn’t understand that drawing attention to programs like Rogan is the last thing you want to do. You can bet that Rogan has picked up more subscribers because of curiosity about what all the fuss is about. If you actually listen to the podcast, you will find no one saying anything definitively, but just people discussing what is happening. Rogan’s best method of picking up subscribers until just recently was probably word of mouth and the occasional viral video. Now, he is getting subscribers because the powers-that-be bring it up for everyone all the time. Sure, there is that part of the population that will immediately demonize Rogan’s show because anything they see on the New York Times front page might as well be handed down to Moses on the mountaintop. Fortunately for the rest of us, there are plenty more people that are not just going to take their word for it.

Rogan’s show is not that funny for a former standup comedian. He frequently lets controversial figures come on (think Alex Jones) and treats them respectfully, but he grills them hard. He is willing to have an open conversation about most anything. It’s a lot of things, some good, some bad. But nowhere could it be called misinformation.

Do spread misinformation, you must have an agenda. Rogan does not have an agenda, except maybe getting more subscribers. The real spreaders of misinformation definitely have an agenda. The scary part is that so many people today are not realizing the censorship that is taking place before their eyes. Even if you agree with it thus far, we have to bring up the trope of the slippery slope. People have trouble seeing things through more of a prism than what they singularly believe. Here’s an example before we go.

Many people on one side of the political spectrum in America were fine with Joe Biden and OSHA requiring private businesses to prove vaccination for COVID-19 for their employees or face fines. The concept seems okay at first glance. These unvaccinated people could be causing a hazard for others, although, once again, if the vaccinations work, why would the unvaccinated be endangering anyone but themselves. That notwithstanding, if you believe that basically one individual being able to install such a mandate is okay, just turn it around. Remember when everyone made a big deal because Trump spouted off some nonsense about UV light and ingesting bleach to fight COVID. Well, if he had decided to order OSHA to make everyone shoot bleach, you would have a problem with that, right? That’s why the mandate couldn’t stand, and thank goodness the Supreme Court stepped in on this one.

Our government is supposed to design where there is no dictator that just decides what is going to happen. For now, that has not been allowed to happen. But what will the future hold? And how far will censorship go?

Yes, pfizer did pay the largest criminal fine of all time

We have been getting a lot of request about this, and with good reason. The so-called fact checkers of Twitter and Facebook certainly like to pick and choose where they come into play. This is not dependent on your political beliefs; it is painfully obvious at this point to anyone at all that these companies are playing favorites with their application of these “fact-checking” measures. So, that leaves us at Common Sense Conspiracy having to help, as always, filter through the BS. We are more than happy to oblige.

This is being passed around on social media, and it couldn’t be more true. Pfizer did indeed get handed the greatest fine in history. You can see some pretty mainstream folks talking about it in the links below. It happened. Pfizer has a history of shady practices, and they are now the ones that have already accepted billions for vaccines that don’t seem to work as well or last as long as originally thought. They are also being tasked with deciding if we need booster shots. If you were a shareholder of Pfizer stock, well, do you think booster shots at six month intervals are a good idea?

I’m waiting for your answer in the comments below.

It was quite bad. I mean really really bad.
Back in the day when government agencies were actually trying to stop this kind of thing, not play into it 100%.

Nashville Explosion Brings 5G Conspiracy Theories to the Mainstream

It’s beginning to look like the Christmas Day explosion from an RV in downtown Nashville was the work of a man that wasn’t trying to kill innocent people, but to actually take out some of the infrastructure of AT&T’s 5G network efforts.

First of all, it was done on Christmas Day at a time when almost no one would be around the area or working in the building.  On top of that, there were announcements warning of the impending explosion.  The guy really went out of his way to try not to hurt anyone, at least as far as he could without the obvious solution of not doing it to begin with.

In a time when the mainstream media is almost a conspiracy network unto itself, 5G theories have been mostly silent.  There was a theory back at the beginning of the pandemic that COVID-19 was somehow caused by 5G networks, but that was one out there for sure.  This story is bringing 5G conspiracy theories to the forefront.

We are not sure how the 5G story began, but there are a lot of people out there that think there is something to this.  We are struggling to figure out why this would be such a threat to humanity versus the waves we are already being exposed to from the current broadband networks.  WiFi is everywhere.  This is all around you.  It’s hard to see how 5G increases that problem.  Still, as always, make up your mind for yourself.  We’ve included a couple of videos below to educate on you on what some people think, and while we don’t necessarily advocate what you will see there, it’s always worth finding out what the story is.  We look forward to hearing your comments on 5G in the space below.

Spain Announces Vaccine Registry — The Beginning of the Mark of the Beast?

Ever since COVID-19 became a global pandemic, many in conspiracy circles were already playing with the notion that this could be a precursor to a whole new sort of worldwide control.  Global problems require global solutions, and with the President Trump’s pause on the one world government about to end, COVID-19 is just the kind of thing people that keep an eye on stuff like this expected.

Now, we have the vaccine for the virus rolling out in record time, and already there are calls all over the world for some system of keeping record of just who is and who is not vaccinated.  Medical privacy laws complicate this matter, but Spain has gone on the record as the first country to openly admit that they will be creating a registry, and it will be designed to make sure people that refuse the vaccine are well-documented.

Of course, the claims are this is just for medical research.  European nations also have privacy laws akin to the ones in the United States, but it’s pretty hard to believe that information like that isn’t going to be used in some other fashion.  This comes on top of other stories about needing a “vaccine passport” to travel across international borders and perhaps needing proof even to go about your daily business.  As you can see in the video below, many Christians are already sounding the alarm that this might be the “Mark of the Beast” mentioned in the Bible’s Book of Revelations.

Our take at Common Sense Conspiracy:  well, if you think that this is the “Mark of the Beast,” then what do you make of all the instances of this already in play.  It’s already required to show that you don’t have yellow fever to travel to many tropical countries.  Children already have to demonstrate vaccinations in many cases to go to school.  Most universities won’t accept young adults without proof of vaccinations as well.  So, while we are not necessarily saying that Spain’s plan is completely innocent, it certainly isn’t unprecedented.

What do you think?  Do you have a problem with a vaccination registry?  What sinister purpose do you think it could be used for in the future?  We want to hear your ideas in the comments below.

Government Officials are Taking COVID-19 Vaccine on Television — What Does It Really Mean?

Sure looks like a vaccine. But what is really in there?

Ever since the super-rushed coronavirus vaccines were first announced to be on track for emergency authorization, there was already plenty of murmuring going on in conspiracy circles and the general population about whether the products of President Trump’s much-hyped Operation Warp Speed were simply too rushed to be trusted to be safe.  Dr. Fauci and all the experts have tried to dispel this distrust by getting government figures at the highest levels to take the vaccine on camera.  The concept, of course, is that you will see Mike Pence getting the vaccine and say, “Well, it must be safe after all.”

Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are pledging to do the same, and even President-elect Joe Biden is saying he too will take the vaccine on Monday live on television to boost confidence in the vaccine.

Hold on just a minute…

Sometimes things just don’t pass the smell test.  This is one of those times.  A classic “while you were sleeping” moment.

With all that we don’t know about the vaccines at this point, there is no way the Secret Service or the government in general would even for one second entertain the notion of letting the President-elect get the vaccine.  We are talking about people that are heavily guarded day in and day out and can hardly do anything publicly because of the security risk.  And now, you are telling me that they will happily pump Mr. Biden full of the first COVID-19 vaccination to get emergency authorization and just roll the dice.

Of course not.  You’ll see Joe Biden and quite possibly the others getting a shot of something on national television, but that hardly proves that they are really getting vaccinated.

Think about all the risks.  Side effects?  That’s just the tip of the iceberg.  The Pfizer version of the vaccine is 90-95% effective.  That is great and pretty much unprecedented in the field of vaccine creation and testing, but it still means that the vaccine will not work on 1 out of every 10 people.  Just think, if Biden gets the vaccine and ends up with COVID-19 a couple weeks later, the confidence he was trying to instill will have just the opposite effect.  Why try it?  Much more likely, he is being shot a placebo for the camera with the promise that he will get the real thing eventually, when they can make sure it is safe.

Now, we at the CSC aren’t necessarily saying that no one should get the vaccine.  That’s not the point.  Sure, if the vaccine is as effective and safe as they say, the more people that get it in the general population the better.  But to try to say you are going to put it in our highest government officials first?

Not only is that probably a lie, but it would be actually dumb if they were really doing it.

So, if Biden or Pence end up in anaphylactic shock in a couple of days, well I guess you can tell us we were wrong.  In the meantime, we wouldn’t let watching these guys get a shot on television sway your thinking too much.  If you are pro-vaccine, by all means get one.  It certainly appears from what we are being told that it is safe and probably will work.  If not, well, we’re just saying don’t let an obvious deception like this have any effect on your decision-making process.  That’s all.  Now, enjoy your Christmas on Zoom, or whatever Dr. Fauci told you it was okay to do.

Danish Minks and COVID-19 Could Be Bad News for Prospective Vaccines

With a lot of people rejoicing about the coming distribution of somewhat effective COVID-19 vaccines, it’s important to realize that while even the prospect of such a vaccine this quick after the virus was discovered is a medical marvel, there are a lot of things that could still happen between now and the finish line.

Denmark is slaughtering millions of minks now that it has been realized that a mutation in the COVID-19 strain can jump to humans.  This is very bad news for vaccination enthusiasts as it reminds us that while a effective vaccine might be working right now, the virus situation is fluid, and there’s nothing saying that it will not mutate and render the vaccine useless.  Maybe Denmark will be in time to stop this from being the real second wave of COVID, but it is a stark example of how we may not be out of the woods yet, vaccine or no vaccine.
