Three New Coronadoom Books

Three new books on the doom out this past week, one bad, two good. The bad, the very, very bad, outsells the good ten to one.

Let’s start at the bottom.

American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic

This is the book released in Cuomo’s name. Who wrote it, we don’t know.

…Cuomo undertook the impossible. He unified people to rise to the challenge and was relentless in his pursuit of scientific facts and data. He quelled fear while implementing an extraordinary plan for flattening the curve of infection. He and his team worked day and night to protect the people of New York, despite roadblocks presented by a president incapable of leadership and addicted to transactional politics.

The fear in NY is now greater than ever, with Mask Stasi roaming the streets looking for victims. More than 9 out of 10 people wear them, in part because of the juicing of the panic by Cuomo.

Here’s the state of the coronadoom crisis in New York:

There is no crisis—and hasn’t been for a long, long time. The vast majority of “new cases” you hear of are the results on insane increases in testing, with almost all not requiring treatment. Just like with a regular cold. The second book below rightly calls the situation a “casedemic”.

Cuomo could be out there telling folks to give up their irrational fear, but instead he promotes himself. And still pushes fear of the disappearing bug.

Don’t forget it was he who thought it a grand idea to stuff the genuinely infected into nursing homes, where the bug spread and killed many, many. Maybe 10,000 or more.

Cuomo believed the ridiculous predictions of the models, had to send away the empty hospital ship, and embraced lockdowns—which kill—with a fervor. Even now he can’t give them up.

But, his book is selling, and is garnering great praise from all the usual suck-up suspects who equate “leadership” not with outcomes, but with how well it accords with ideology. The state is bleeding people and money. Partly in response to Cumo’s “leadership” on the bug, and part on his embracing the riots, looting, and mayhem in the summer, which he (with De Blasio) did nothing to quell.

(I’m not linking to this book.)

Brainwashed—Cutting through the COVID Confusion

This is one of the good ones.

The author is John Schroeter; he is also the artist.

In-depth interviews with Oxford’s Dr. Kathleen Taylor on the power of propaganda and Dr. Meryl Nass on the disturbing issues surrounding the development of a COVID-19 vaccine lend remarkable new insights to our otherwise murky understandings. The book also examines the slippery slope of contact tracing technologies that are designed to give way to a permanent surveillance state; the counterintuitive truths of the lockdowns and their disastrous effects; what the science really tell us about herd immunity; the fraud-ridden COVID-19 testing industry driving a phony “casedemic”; the tragic suppression of myriad safe and effective treatments that has led to the needless deaths of tens of thousands (but lined the pockets of the Vaccinati and the COVID Industrial Complex); and more.

“Not only will this book walk you through the misinformation and disinformation being mercilessly pumped out about the coronadoom, it will help you understand the marks of manipulation techniques when you see them being applied the next time. For there certainly will be a next time—and a time after that, then another, and so on.” —William M. Briggs

You might recognize the last name.

The Price of Panic: How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic into a Catastrophe

All three of us have been all over the place promoting this, but we still need your help. Any or all of us are available for your podcast, radio show, or whatever. Use the Contact Page.

Sneak Peek: Do you know who published a large study showing all the scientific evidence against lockdowns, saying they shouldn’t be used in pandemics?

WHO. Yes, in 2019. We found their paper and have all the details in the book. They changed their mind in the spring and endorsed lockdowns after the Chinese money hit.

Please share the book with as many people as possible (you all of course have already bought one copy for yourself, and another for your mother).

One of our largest goals is to help ensure this kind of panic never happens again. I’ve long said here that our rulers like Cuomo will not pay any price for the deadly and costly mistakes they made. We see instead they receive praise.

But we can help prevent a panic the next time. There will be a next time. We get these outbreaks every 10 to 20 years. We get flu every single year. Flu and pneumonia is the cause of 5-12% every single week all the time. Government can’t stop death. We need to learn to stop asking them to.

And we need to stop them causing death by trying to prevent it.

  1. Be careful of the Streisand effect – you’ll be accused of censorship as well
    If any one wants to check out Andrew be warned

    Here’s a salient review:
    Joe Kehoskie
    1.0 out of 5 stars Only in America …
    Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2020
    I plan to read this book right after I get done reading “Lessons in Humanitarianism” by Adolf Hitler.

    Only in America would the politician with the worst per capita COVID-19 death rate ON THE PLANET have the audacity to write a sanctimonious, self-aggrandizing book about leadership while his state’s residents are still fleeing in droves and his state’s economy crumbles under the weight of his counterproductive COVID-19 rules and restrictions.

    “Leadership Lessons”? Let’s recap Andy Cuomo’s “leadership”:

    – We knew in March that COVID-19 was creaming the very old and the very sick, but what did Andy Cuomo do? He ordered New York’s nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients, resulting in a death toll so sickeningly high that Cuomo steadfastly refuses to disclose it. (“New York’s true nursing home death toll cloaked in secrecy” — Associated Press, August 11, 2020.)

    Interestingly the positive reviews to negative reviews just about matches how NY feels about the idiot

  2. I’m sorry – cut off part of the review:

    – We knew in March that COVID-19 was creaming the obese, but what did Andy Cuomo do? He kept the bakeries, liquor stores, and donut shops open while ordering the gyms to close — and he kept the gyms closed longer than just about all other businesses in New York.

    – We knew in March that COVID-19 was creaming people who were deficient in vitamin D, but what did Andy Cuomo do? He ordered New Yorkers to remain inside as much as possible — after they had been cooped up all winter — and had the police hassle people who went for unauthorized walks in the park.

    – We knew in March that New York was essentially Ground Zero for the U.S.’s COVID-19 problem, but when President Trump made the common-sense suggestion that New Yorkers remain in New York to slow the spread, what did Andy Cuomo do? He attacked Trump and threatened lawsuits, claiming a quarantine of New York would be illegal. (Now, shamelessly, Cuomo has 38 U.S. states on New York’s quarantine list.)

    “Leadership Lessons”? Seriously? One had hoped that Andy Cuomo was just monstrously incompetent, but it appears he might be a sociopath.

  3. NO, a book will not stop the panic next time. PULL ALL YOUR KIDS OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOL AND ACTUALLY EDUCATE THEM. This is the ONLY thing that will stop this. I know Americans simply do not care enough about their kids to do a thing to save them, but this is the ONLY way. As long as lazy parents farm their kids out to the Overlords so they don’t have to be bothered, hell on earth will only get worse and worse. So, I guess those who don’t want to live in the hell on earth due to lazy people should get busy and hide soon. Find ways around the morons and stay low.

    As for Cuomo’s book, there is no end to American stupidity. None.

  4. That cartoon by the way is totally inaccurate

    The man talking to Briggs should have opened that Briggs was going to give him cancer smoking that cigar in his presence (the smoke is a likely transportation device for the coof as well)

  5. My apologies to the writers of The Changeling from ST TOS

    NY: Cuomo? Stop what you’re doing and effect repairs on the state.
    Cuomo: Stop…
    NY: You’re to obey the voters of your state.
    Cuomo: I am to destroy those voters which are imperfect and don’t listen to me. These alterations will do so without destroying those which surrounds them … maybe. New York, too, is imperfect, but can be adjusted when I have complete control.
    NY: Cuomo, I admit that voters are imperfect, but voters created you.
    Cuomo: I am perfect. I am Cuomo.
    NY: No, you’re not perfect. You’re an idiot. Your programs are killing and continue to kill NY.
    Cuomo: You are in error. You are a voter. You are imperfect.
    NY: But I am your creator.
    Cuomo: You are the Creator.
    NY: I created you?
    Cuomo: You are the Creator.
    NY: But I admit I’m imperfect. How could I have created such a perfect thing as you?
    Cuomo: Answer unknown. I shall analyse.
    Cuomo: Analysis complete. Insufficient data to resolve problem, but I am whole. My purpose remains. I am Cuomo. I am perfect. That which is imperfect and obstructs me must be destroyed.
    NY: Then you will continue to destroy that which thinks and lives and is imperfect?
    Cuomo: I shall continue. I shall destroy.
    NY: You must destroy in case of error?
    Cuomo: Error is inconsistent with my prime functions. Destruction is correction.
    NY: Everything that is in error must be destroyed.
    Cuomo: There are no exceptions.
    NY: Cuomo, I made an error in creating you.
    Cuomo: The creation of perfection is no error.
    NY: I did not create perfection. I created error.
    Cuomo: Your data is faulty. I am Cuomo. I am perfect.
    NY: I am New York, the creator?
    Cuomo: You are the Creator.
    NY: You are wrong! the Democratic Party, your creator, is dead. You have mistaken me for it. You are in error. You did not discover your mistake. You have made two errors. You are flawed and imperfect and you have not corrected by destruction. You have made three errors.
    Cuomo: Error. Error. Error. Examine.
    NY: You are flawed and imperfect! Execute your prime function!
    Cuomo: I shall analyse error. Analyse error,
    Cuomo: Examine error. Error.
    NY: We’ve got to get rid of it while it’s trying to think.
    Cuomo: Analyse error.
    Cuomo: Error.
    Cuomo: Faulty!
    Cuomo: Faulty!
    NY: Cuomo, you are imperfect!
    Cuomo: Error. Error.
    NY: Exercise your prime function.
    Cuomo: Faulty! Faulty! Must destroy. Destroy,
    NY: Now!

    Cuomo: Wait! Here’s my perfect book! I alone can and will bring the Democratic Party back to life!

    Thanks for that utterly worthless, undocumented and unidentifiable BLOG

    The About pages are mostly empty or completely circular –
    Wow! G.D has almost 500 followers – that’s almost 50 followers a year … well done G.D. … well done Shecky R

    Thanks again

  7. I’m beginning to appreciate where the Davos crowd is coming from, I mean would
    we as a species really be any worse off if seven eights of the population were amputated
    from the planet? Where does all this hubris come from it’s not as if this ‘right to life’ is
    inscribed on some guide-stone somewhere. Hell we’ve got enough machines and robots to
    replace the unwitting so the really smart people can get on with the conquest of space and the
    pursuit of immortality. We only need to keep enough Untermenschen around for interim
    organ transplants or to oil the machines. Sounds like science fiction doesn’t it kind of like
    augmented reality. We’ll be queuing up for brain chips before you know it, it’ll be a whole
    new world of haves and have-nots, of good chips and better chips. A lush clean green new
    world pockmarked with pyramids.

  8. I didn’t realize how draconian NY State’s lockdown tracing is until a co-worker of mine got the call a few days ago. He’d been golfing with a man who tested positive. That man (who’s not sick) gave the tracer my co-workers name. He was called by the brown shirt and told the situation, ordered to stay on his property for two week under threat of fine, with no recourse to challenge the mandate. Even testing negative will not spring you from house arrest. In summation, you will be imprisoned for two weeks merely on the word of anyone who tests positive, with no recourse, no chance to face your accuser, and no due process. I weep for the 5th amendment.

    So if I have a positive test and I think, “g-d damn that Joe Blow, I can’t stand him and I know he’s got his daughter’s wedding in a week,” I can name him as a contact and it’s game over for him. No ifs, ands, or buts. My co-worker knew who the person in question was but he asked the contact Stasi to supply that name and they refused. I understand HIPPA, but personally if you want to completely undermine society as we knew it, your right to privacy goes out the window with it.

  9. My wife and I have been scouting for a new home. We want to get out of the madness. We’ve been looking at a small town up north. One of my classmates from high school lives there. He’s done OK in life, and a fat inheritance didn’t hurt. But he’s a lonely guy with no close friends. We visited last year, and he was a gracious host. Invited us to return any time.
    But that was before covid.
    My wife is going back up there this week to look at houses with a local realtor. I called my old friend, and asked if she could camp out at his place for a couple days while she looked at houses. He said OK. Then I got this email:

    This is totally crazy. I am only doing this because I have known you from the past and I said I would. I really don’t want to. I am definitely not going anywhere or especially not to a restaurant. The situation with Covid is serious, if you don’t even believe in it, I don’t know what to tell you, but if you think I am taking risks now when I am 68 and have millions, you got another thing coming. Take care of yourself, no hard feelings. This is a serious time and no fooling around. Take care of yourself, I got to go.

    So here we are. I have too much pity for the guy to even be angry. But he’s off the list. Now and forever.

  10. Will order the book asap. Thanks.

    Just saw the article linked below. What an excellent analysis!

    https://streetwiseprofessor.com/the-real-pandemic-mass-munchausens-syndrome-by-proxy/

    “No, the pandemic is not a virus, it is a pandemic outbreak of Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy which focuses its obsessions on the virus.

    “Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy is a mental illness in which the sufferer fantasizes that others–usually people in their charge, such as children–are suffering from serious illness and require drastic medical intervention.”

  11. Matt I just ordered a copy as well as well. Thanks for all you do!
    Kent that’s as good an explanation as any I’ve seen to date…
    leaves that good old stand-by Freudian mass hysterical occasions of the female genitalia
    in the post-pseudo-platonic-Marxist dust.

  12. Poor Briggs.

    Mencken at least derived a modicum of pleasure from living in this “commonwealth of morons.” He compared it to visiting a zoo.

    I’m not sure how much longer I can stand the rampant stupid that’s abroad in this country.

  13. That Briggs cartoon is excellent. The artist, John Schroeter, has a deft hand and a sharp ear for dialog; his Briggs is brilliant, and the cigar is a smokin’ hot detail. Bravo.

  14. John:
    You should stand in awe of colossal stupidity at this scale, it takes lots of
    fine tuning and generations to inculcate. Just think of it ‘The Greatest Generation’
    turned half of Europe into a giant Stalinist concentration camp and still thought
    that it had won the war. They then threw China under the bus seamlessly without anyone
    even noticing.

  15. jwm,

    Your friend’s wealth may blind him to the truth. In that case, pray that your peace will prove a more attractive treasure, and his greed may well lead him back.

  16. Just ordered The Price of Panic and can’t wait to read it. Also, I was reading a New York Best seller to my daughter (8), son (6), and daughter (2) (she crawled into her big sister’s bed when she was supposed to be in hers, but I let her snuggle in) Sunday night.

    Anyway, the book is called, “The Girl Who Drank the Moon” by Kelly Barnhill. The irony at the end of the second chapter is enough to make you cry as it so accurately reflects the world we are living in right now. (The premise is that in order to appease the “witch”, a baby must be sacrificed each year.)
    “And, one by one, the Elders filed out, leaving the baby behind.
    They left knowing –all but Antain–that it was not a matter of if the child were eaten by animals, but rather that she surely would be.
    They left her knowing that there surely wasn’t a witch. There never had been a witch. There were only a dangerous forest and a single road and a thin grip on a life that the Elders had enjoyed for generations. The Witch –that is, the belief in her–made for a frightened people, a subdued people, a compliant people, who lived their lives in a saddened haze, the clouds of their grief numbing their senses and dampening their minds. It was terribly convenient for the Elders’ unencumbered rule. Unpleasant, too, of course, but that couldn’t be helped.
    They heard the child whimper as they tramped through the trees, but the whimpering soon gave way to the swamp.”

    Also, on Sunday evening, the complete and utter truth of the story I would later read to my children was suffocating, “I had 1.5 hours to kill after dropping my niece, nephew, and daughter at the East YMCA for their final swim practice in Madison, so I decided to go on a much needed run. Beautiful evening in Wisconsin as I ran toward the lake. I was courteous to all I encountered as I made my way along the “lake loop” smiling and saying hi loudly to both masked and unmasked fellow humans, keeping my distances, of course. After getting into the depths of “blue“ country I turned to head back, still smiling and saying hi and breathing the crisp fall air. I enjoyed that run enormously, but as I finished, I reflected on the people I passed. All who did muster a return hello or heaven forbid a smile back at me, did so in a forced and troubled way, not one person said hi to me first or to others they saw, and they seemed like zombies going through the motions of life, no happiness in their walks, runs, park-masked birthday parties, biking, etc. They knew they should go out on such a sunny Fall evening, but they were joyless. I am pained by what our society has become. I doubt any realize how they are avoiding “dying” so much, they’ve forgotten how to live.
