USA TODAY Fact Checks the Right Wire Report and Gets it Wrong

US Today vs Right Wire Report

Please bear with me as this fact-checking the fact-checker can be tedious. USA TODAY (online) published an article on December 26, 2020, titled: Your guide to coronavirus and Covid-19. Buried within the article's content is a section denoted as rumors, which takes you to a list dated December 21, 2020. It is there where if you scroll down the list, you will see a link to a fact check dated August 19, 2020, titled: Fact-check: Fauci did not approve Hydroxychloroquine as a cure for coronaviruses in 2005. Why the reading roadmap? Great question, and here is your answer. Imagine my surprise when today, the day after Christmas, I am just now learning of the USA TODAY Fact check naming an article this

What Risk Is Society Willing to Take to Live?

Risky Business

Do-gooding, selective ignoramuses, are quick to point out where we are failing with COVID, but where is their same concern for human life when it comes to unhealthy food, alcohol, and cigarette consumption? For that matter, where is the concern in deadly flu seasons? For reasonable people, the hysteria surrounding COVID is as confusing as it is frustrating. Take your pick on facts that are constantly ignored or denied by the self-proclaimed "Party of Science." The CDC's  fatality rate  continues declining, and its most recent death rate is down to just .4% In other words, 99.6% of people that contract COVID survive More than 80% of all COVID deaths are among people aged 65 and older More than half of all COVID deaths have come

Left-Wing Delusions Feed Their Beliefs

Delusionsal Leftist

The perspective they have on - well, everything now - begs the question: Are they intentionally misleading folks, or are they really that clueless? There is no third option. If one were to believe the American Left - and unfortunately many people do - one would also have to believe that the ills of America are uniquely our own. If only we were like the rest of the world, all would be fine. Most recently, the moral degenerates at the Democrat Convention blamed Trump for the 170,000 COVID-related (as opposed to COVID-caused?) deaths. The fact that they trot out New York's feckless governor, he whose state has helmed a state with more death than any other, to call Trump a clueless virus

North Korea and COVID – Communism in Action

North Korea Crowd

Several years ago during a friendly conversation with a family member who had just begun his college studies, the topic of governmental systems came up. Like many students his age, it became clear during our discussion that the principles of socialism and communism had caught his attention. It wasn't an all-out embrace of the ideology, but more of a curiosity. Pointing to the existence of billionaires living simultaneously in a society with a homelessness problem, it's easy to blame capitalism for oppressing the less fortunate, and to a young, malleable mind the argument may make sense. He clearly grasped the basic concepts of communism and had a solid understanding of its history. His thinking hit a major snag, however, when

How Coronavirus and Healthcare Costs are Driving Our Moral Compass

Coronavirus Game

The Coronavirus has brought a new reality in how we live. The lockdowns, containment tiers, mask mandates, and social distancing restrictions imposed on society have people fooled into a basic game of hid the pea under the walnut - for the young at heart, an X-Box computer game. Guess which walnut the Coronavirus is hidden under? But is this game being played without the player realizing that they are looking into a mirror that confuses the walnut selection with a potential wrong outcome? The dilemma is to focus on the perceived outcome of saving either: "the protecting the lives of the elderly with a moral compass ... or ... the economic stability of the economy and national health services, where ever you

The Democrats’ Endless Coronavirus Hypocrisies

Democrats Hypocrisies

A friend's Facebook feed revealed to him that Denver's Democrat mayor, Michael Hancock, felt entitled to break his own coronavirus sanctions against traveling for Thanksgiving and jet out to Mississippi. On an entirely unrepentant Facebook thread, he noted that "my wife and my daughter have been in Mississippi, where my daughter recently took a job ... I decided that it would be safer to see them than to have two family members travel back to Denver." Did that sound apologetic? In his concluding remarks, the mayor emoted that he "made my decision as a husband and a father." As if no one else planning Thanksgiving thinks of family members. In the latest of a string of endless examples, the ruling elites

Does Joe Biden Deserve Credit For The Stock Market Rise?

Stock Market Rise

Recent headlines would understandably make a casual or low-information reader continue to buy into the legacy media’s gigantic lie that everything about Donald Trump is nightmarish and everything about Joe Biden is utopian. From the Washington Post: “Dow Climbs 1,100 points as vaccine news, Biden victory rev up markets.”  From the UK’s Guardian: “Biden win boosts global stock markets as FTSE 100 surges.” From Bloomberg: “JP Morgan Says Biden Victory Could Mark a Stock Market Shift.” From RealClearPolitics: “The Stock Market Likes Joe Biden.” From Morningstar: "Dow Surges to Highest Level Since February On Vaccine Results, Biden Win." None of this should be construed as an argument or complaint against rising stock prices; rising stocks are outstanding. It is simply an illustration of blatant media bias.

Op-Ed: Coronavirus Cured My Germophobia

Germophobe

People laugh when I tell them my husband, rather a practical joker, calls me "Monk." After I've shaken someone's hand at a gathering after they're right out of earshot, he'll take the opportunity to lean over and whisper, "Wipe! Wipe!" All my life, I've been deeply afraid of germs. In fact, I am a germophobic person from a long line of germophobic people. My grandmother was such a devoted "clean freak" that my father used to quip that she wrote the book, "Cooking with Lysol." Her mother's germophobic lifestyle caused my mom to be very neurotic. I would joke that she wrote the sequel, "Cooking with Valium." Looking back, I remember my mother slapping white cotton gloves on me when I

Five COVID Questions For Thinking People

Thinking People

The American public needs to begin holding more than one thought in its head at the same time; many things can be true at once. For example, coronavirus can be a real disease that we approach with caution but not paranoid fear. Democrats perform better electorally when the public is ill-informed, unquestioning, and focused on its deranged hate for Donald Trump. They know that it is hard for the plebeian voters to think rationally when anger and emotions dictate brain function. Out of this intentional deceit and chaos engendered through misinformation and unconstitutional dictates, a few questions emerge. How is it possible that the media and Democratic politicians simultaneously blame Trump for the loss of lives and destruction of the economy? Either Trump

Gobbledygook Coronavirus Math Updates

Coronavirus Math

The benefits of having historical data to make any analysis is always easier. Back in the middle of the Coronavirus "pandemic," we reported on the Gobbledygook Coronavirus Math. In the fog of breaking events, sometimes the analysis can skew one's thinking. Hence, the Right Wire Report has been asked to update this article with the new data from the CDC for the U.S. and put the new data into a meaningful perspective.  First, let's get the CDC data and understand it a little better.
