Everything is becoming political, even science, says psychiatrist and author Norman Doidge, in “Hydroxychloroquine: A Morality Tale,” in Tablet Magazine.
We knew science was becoming political, as evidenced by the “the science is in” attitude of many (but not all) politicians and scientists about global warming or climate change.
But HCQ, a $10 usually-successful treatment for the Wuhan virus used all over the non-Anglo world? Yep. Here, in the Anglosphere, it’s tied up with Trump Derangement Syndrome because the president touted HCQ early in the pandemic. Which meant the Mediacrats had to condemn it and did and still do.
Truly, the Left can’t control our president, as Tucker demonstrates, and it remains to be seen if they can beat him in November, but meanwhile, what a wasteland, as someone once called broadcast television. Is cable worse? Can these whiners be eased out for ones more objective or are we doomed to see the invective spread? Meanwhile, we have The Donald.
The cops aren’t interfering, even when black business owners protest the looting of their stores, and the lamestream media, as usual, is lying:
“It’s mostly a protest and generally not unruly”, said the fake news (MSNBC) reporter as he stands in front of a burning building while looters scamper around behind him.”

“One welcome byproduct of the COVID 19 [panic] is that we are getting some blessed relief from the ministrations of St. Greta of Thunberg, which rather puts things in perspective: How can we possibly be navigating this crisis without the advice and counsel of Time magazine’s most recent Person of the Year? It’s almost as though when something serious comes along, as opposed to the climate change whim-wham, adults recognize that listening to a teenager is stupid.”
You gotta hunt for the virus good news since the Mediacrats are all about gloom and doom in hopes of destroying the Trump Economy. Americans be damned. One excellent source to start with is the White House’s West Wing Reads.
“Vice President Mike Pence, head of the Administration’s Coronavirus Task Force, announced yesterday that private health insurers have agreed to waive co-pays for Coronavirus testing and treatment. ‘The vice president said testing will be available at LabCorp and Quest Diagnostic locations and 4 million additional test kits will be sent out by the end of the week,’ Fred Lucas reports for The Daily Signal.”
“The much-awaited Inspector General’s report on the FBI [was] a white wash, because in Cloud People land, the only real punishment is a few negative sentences in a report no one will read. Dirt People go to jail, face real hardships and have to answer for their actions. That sort of stuff is for the peasants, not the beautiful people who are defending democracy. That’s just not how things are done in Washington. If the Dirt People don’t like that, well, ‘qu’ils mangent de la brioche.'”
AG Barr certainly is undermining the white wash. But his is a lonely voice.
