“Why is this lying bastard lying to me?”

Famously, this question was Jeremy Paxman’s inspiration when he had to interview politicians.

It’s a great starting point, regardless of jurisdiction or political hue.

For example, this statement today by NSW’s Chief Health Officer, Dr Kerry Chant (bold highlighting mine):

Vaccination is part of the solution. It helps us because if the person is vaccinated, there is less chance that they get the disease particularly if they have had two doses. And therefore, it means are less likely to pass it to others. And also less likely to need hospital care and admission to intensive care.”

Really? It’s just that the reports coming from the almost completely vaccinated Israel, Iceland and Gibraltar seem to totally contradict that.

Mandatory wearing of face masks outdoors is another questionable imposition.

According to the USA’s CDC, there’s little to no evidence of outdoor transmission.

While we’re referencing the CDC, what do they say about the evidence of transmission from surface contact? You know, the reason behind all the billions of gallons of hand sanitiser being poured in to the water cycle?

In their own report, it’s low risk. If the CDC state it’s low risk, I think it’s a safe assumption the chances of catching it from a door knob or shopping trolley handle are trending close to zero.

We could devote pages of this blog to listing all the statements made during this epoch of incredulity we now know to be lies; quarantine is racist, masks don’t work, it didn’t leak from a lab, flatten the curve, herd immunity, lockdowns work, vaccine passports won’t be required, vaccines won’t be mandated, etc.

The laundry list of lies is not really the point, is it?

The question we aren’t seeing anyone in the media ask is why the fuck are we still listening to these liars?

Bill’s Opinion

Never before in the history of humankind has The Gell Mann Amnesia Effect done so much heavy lifting.

We learn almost daily that we’ve been lied to and yet, the following day, we unquestioningly accept more statements as fact from the very same lying liars.

Fool me one time, shame on you. Fool me two times, shame on me.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

  1. I would not trust the CDC on which direction thevsun was rising.

    Wash your hands. Do *not* touch ypur nose eyes and mouth.

    Fecal oral transmission is real. Of the CCPox and loads of other virii who enjoy the damp sticky matrix that enables them to survive what disperses and fragments their aerosolized brethren.

    This is an “and” moment.

    My money is on the aerosolized transmission overtaking self-innoculation because millions of people believe in the magic power of cotton masks to stop their coughs and sneezes.

  2. This is why I don’t yet believe the story about the healthy, 38yo woman who died in Sydney. Every other time they’ve spruiked a narrative like this it’s turned out to be fake, like the two young men who died with Covid in Melbourne – we found out later that one died of cancer and the other ODed.
    The Sydney case may turn out to be a real, very unlucky situation but at this point authorities have cried wolf too many times.
    Not only on this. On everything. What little doubt I had about global warming being a scam is now just about gone.

    1. Yeah, similarly there was the 27 year old who died a few weeks ago. Dr Chant was quick to use him as an example to us all.

      A day later, turns out his family have a genetic heart disorder.
