The CDC Hides COVID Data But Says Americans Are The Problem

AMAC Exclusive by: Tammy Bruce

One of the major catastrophes of the bungling of the Biden administration’s COVID-19 response has been the loss of trust in the agencies that we should be able to trust the most.

It’s now clear that every agency of the federal government has been completely politicized. We have seen it with the IRS and the Department of Justice, and now there are major questions about the Center for Disease Control and Health and Human Services.

A shocking story revealed that the CDC has been withholding most of its critical data regarding COVID-19 from the public. This is brought to us from, of all places, the New York Times, a usually reliable transcriber of Democrat talking points. It now reinforces the disaster of the Biden administration’s manipulation of the pandemic for their own political interests.

The newspaper reports that the CDC is deliberately withholding a massive amount of COVID-19 research and data for fear that it would be “misunderstood” by the public. In other words, their excuse is that we’re all too dumb to understand the facts. In fact, information is power, and apparently, the “science” is now telling them that the truth may be too damaging for their political agenda.

Sources are telling the New York Times that the CDC is withholding tranches of data from the public because, in the words of Kristen Nordlund, the CDC spokesperson, the data is simply “not yet ready for prime time,” which implies it doesn’t fit the political narrative. Part of the data not released includes the effectiveness of booster shots on those between 18-49 years old. Other data withheld contains information about hospitalizations, booster vaccines, and wastewater analyses. Ms. Nordlund, most shockingly, also noted that there was fear that the public would “misinterpret” the information.

Consider what they are saying here: that they chose not to release information because they didn’t want to confuse or mislead the public. Did no one consider the fact that hiding details as significant as study results on multiple critical issues would, in fact, confuse and mislead the public?

The underlying implication of her comments is that the study details would give people the impression that booster shots were either ineffective or unnecessary. At no point would they be releasing raw data without explanation. Are they so unsure of their ability to explain what they would consider the truth of the data to the American people? Or does the data speak for itself, jeopardizing the political agenda surrounding the Biden administration’s handling of the pandemic?

The condemnation by the public, including those in the medical field and on the front lines of the pandemic, was swift. Dr. Nicole Saphier, a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering, tweeted this: “The CDC’s response when questioned about their withholding of Covid data and lack of transparency is essentially ‘we don’t trust you to be able to understand the truth.’ The condescension is palpable…” She added, “People who have blindly trusted the CDC the last 2 years are about to have their world turned upside down as the lack of transparency and manipulation of data become undeniably evident.”

Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, a Fox News Medical Contributor and Medical Director of City MD in New York, noted, “I practice evidence based medicine to provide the best care for my patients based on accurate & up to date information. So why would the CDC withhold any data that can help me better serve my patients? Truth & Transparency is essential-not cherry picking data.”

As the Biden administration is slouching toward either a new hot or cold war with Russia, and as our geopolitical enemies are becoming even more emboldened by the obvious fecklessness of the American government, this is a time when transparency and honesty with the American people is imperative.

COVID-19 is not done with us. Yet, now we have a government that admits that it is effectively lying to us by omission regarding the scientific details of our own research and understanding of the virus itself. These are the same people who have lectured us for two years about “following the science.” And yet that very science that they tell us we need to follow is being locked up and hidden from us for some strange reason. It is not unfair to note that this revelation makes it appear the bureaucracy has been peddling its opinions as “science.”

Many of the problems we face today will be solved with elections, but some are so urgent that opposition leaders in Washington and throughout the country must act now on this shocking admission by the CDC. We deserve to see what the CDC has determined about the virus itself, the vaccines, and other imperative data such as hospitalizes and actual numbers of COVID-19 deaths. People involved in lying to the American people should be fired.

We are at a turning point in this country. This debacle is brought to us by the same Democrat Party and Washington DC swamp that continues to be obsessed with gaining more and more control over our lives while working to keep us isolated and in the dark.

Get rid of the alphabet soup of bureaus. They are useless political tools that no longer benefit the citizens (if they ever did) and have been turned into a means of controlling the populace.

It’s quite ironic that the words ” In God We Trust” are written on currency made by and manipulated by a government we cannot trust. The U.S. governments must all be overhauled to reduce the seduction of corruption of representatives.

This continues until we the people call them out and drag them out if they don’t turn around. I believe if we just prosecute one traitor and give them the death penalty by public hanging this garbage stops. My opinion.

Many of our government agencies were socialist by nature such as DOE and HHS. Obama politicized (socialized) all the rest of the government agencies, including the IRS, CIA, FBI, DOJ, CDC, DOD and DHS as part of his “END GAME” to socialize America.

This lying by omission is the hallmark of what journalism has become in the United States. Cherry picking the facts, leaving out critical information and then spinning the story to create a sense of truthfulness happens all day every day in the mass media which have become the propaganda wing of the radicalized Democrat party. The existence of this same mindset in the federal bureaucracy is hardly new, but they are now breaking cover as it has become acceptable to be a radical leftist, or so they think.

We need to cut the political head off of the bureaucracy. The first three levels of management need to be terminated and criminal investigations of public employee unions.

A lot of people have come to this. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.

Even in the best of times, government is never trustworthy. And now, you would have to be an idiot to trust the federal government. And no, the problems are not likely to be solved with elections. If the Republicans won, they would probably ask for a recount – they are that stupid. And, we had a Republican president, and he allowed Fauci and the CDC to call the shots. Remember that.

You should read Robert F. Kennedy’s book “The Real Anthony Fauci”. Every page is a horror story. What he is doing now with Covid, is a mirror image of what was done when Fauci was appointed to the CDC/NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) in the mid- 80’s for the AIDs epidemic. Beyond shocking. He is essentially the head salesman for the pharmaceutical industry. He decides what drugs get trials, their design and parameters, data to be included and interpretation of results. He squashes dissent by controlling grant money from the drug and vaccine patents the CDC holds. I could go on and on but it’s best that you see it for yourself. When Tucker Carlson provides an hour long, commercial free platform for a liberal, that speaks volumes. The Kennedy family cachet is still intact because the Woke crowd hasn’t yet tried to cancel him. As soon as the interview was over I downloaded his book to my Kindle. A bit daunting at 930+ pages but very, very, readable. I have to set it down for a couple of days after each chapter so I can ruminate over the depth of damage done to America and her citizens.

Just follow the money! The drug companies (and many of those who have promoted them) have made billions. They don’t care what it has done to America. Simple.

By the way, the author if Robert F. Kennedy JR. I left the Jr. part out. My apologies. How this guy hasn’t been charged with Crimes Against Humanity is beyond me. A group called Frontline Covid Critical Care Association provides data on actual Covid patients; not a randomized, double blind experiment. They have a phenomenal rate of non-hospitalization and survival of Covid infected patients. This group, has among them, Nobel Laureates..They estimate conservatively that 80% of deaths could have been avoided with the use of Hydoroxy and/or Ivermectin. This s.o.b. has the blood of hundreds of thousands on his hands. He claims to be Mr.Science but he is more like Dr. Death.

Not before the election process is revamped so all elections (both local, state and federal) are fair, free and transparent. Which WILL NOT happen under the Dumbocrats. So prepare NOW for American Revolution 2, coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

The arrogance of hubris of the elites that run these alphabet agencies, beholden to no one, is obscene. Unelected desk jockeys have led us down a dark path, especially with this flu epidemic. The Administrative State is our biggest enemy and threat to our republic.

The only people too dumb to understand the facts are the so-called Democratic Liberals. Why? . . . Just look at the “mascot” of the Democratic Party, it’s a JACKASS! . . . That’s why I always refer to him as JACKASS JOE BIDEN! . . . People, there IS NO MIDDLE CLASS IN SOCIALISM, only rich and poor, and the poor represent 98% of the population! . . . Point that out constantly to so-called Democrats!

Nope, your statistics are incorrect. 70% of Americans are clueless; 20% are marginally involved, 5% are actively attempting to destroy the USA and only 5% are patriots. Nice try; no cigar.

All you Trump supporters on here who are acting just like the Democrats, need to grow up! Trump served his God given purpose. I voted for him. I will not vote for him again. It is time for Republicans to look to new, young, fresh adults who will lead from a Ronald Reagan point of view.

Trump allowed Fauci and the CDC to call the shots. He allowed his own administration to undermine him. Read Angelo Codevilla’s “What is Trump” for an explanation of this.

The biggest problem was that President Trump was between a rock and a hard place. I agree that Fauci was a bad decision, however no matter which way President Trump went he would be demonized by the socialist left. His administration was a blessing for America, it would show us what true leadership looked like. What we have now is pathetic. If we fight among ourselves to elect the “perfect” leader in the future, we will fail.

Read ‘The Animal Farm” and ‘1984’ by George Orwell. Then you will fully understand that the DNC, in link with China, is working to do a power grab in America. Lie, Deny and Blame at every opportunity to keep the general public in the dark. The general public that the government, our government, has been indoctrinated, even in our schools, over the past four decades. This is serious! If information is power, then what is the lack of information, its a lack of power. What is the CDC doing, they removing our power and our freedoms through their Lie, Deny and Blame policies, fostered thru the DNC. The CDC says the reason Covid data cannot be released is because the public is to ignorant to understand lt. Is that blaming the public for their hold and not releasing critical information??? Is that a lie???

Holy Moley! WE’RE THE PROBLEM???!!! CDC knew about this china-virus long before it spread from the Wuhan province in China across the Pacific Ocean to North, Central and South America… and beyond. With all of the CDC clones we have in this country, the likes of Fauci, etc. are a dime a dozen. None of them know what’s happening but they’ll lie through their teeth to serve their individual purpose(s). Nah, they’re not our friends. IMHO
