CON JOB ALERT: WH Sources say 2 tactics will be used to get America open & #Trump reelected.

1.) Cast doubts on all #COVID19 death numbers & try to get Americans to disbelieve their health depts. & @CDCgov rpts.
and
2.) Use Exec Order powers to "create demand" for...

...US-manufactured goods by outlawing products & mandating Americans purchase replacements. Example given: Declare it illegal to drive US hwys w/a truck rig >10 yrs old, compelling truckers to "demand" new rigs.
The idea is to force spending to juice the economy.

3/
Birx is allegedly starting to cast aspersions on @CDCgov #COVID19 mortality data:
“'There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,' Birx said, according to two of the people."

But evidence points in the opposite direction, meaning #COVID19 deaths are UNDER-counted, not over-counted.
Spike in US deaths and cases flagged as pneumonia suggests even greater COVID-19 impact
An analysis of CDC data suggests that COVID-19's death toll in the U.S. has been much worse than reported. Pneumonia cases are a clue as to why.

Nevertheless, #Trump backers are pushing the "over-count" narrative hard. MORE
Trump boosters: Don’t believe the coronavirus death toll

To public health specialists, it’s a disturbing trend that could lead to people ignoring government warnings.

On ^ "demand" side to boost economy, example:
"#Trump issued Exec Order...prohibits acquisition or installation of electrical equip originating in countries designated 'foreign adversaries'...cld result in major disruptn to electric power & transmissn."

1. How many people die never mattered...

the optics of not doing anything wasn't working to their advantage, so they have been running scams.

New scam, obscure, hide, cover up, white wash the deaths and bull through.

The christofascists don't need gas chambers and ovens...they have COVID.

2. I guess time will tell if this will work

Truthfully, I don't believe that it would. People already think that Trump has done and is doing a horrible job and trust Dr. Fauci more than Trump. While Fauci seems to be somewhat muzzled, people aren't blind to reality and if they see bodies hitting the floor everywhere even when the WH and various state governments are parroting disparately smaller numbers, they'll know what's up. As for the second part, I have no idea whether that will work or not. People can be compelled back to work but how we're going to bring all of that manufacturing home from China or elsewhere seems like it's not going to happen overnight. And there's still that pesky issue of people still just not going out much even if everything is open if they don't feel safe.

7. This won't just magically go away regardless if they stop reporting the numbers and

as people see friends dying around them and the economy not getting better it just won't matter. Unless we get through this in a few months and the economy starts back up again he is done. This is all desperate BS.

9. well #2 is nonsence, the president has no power to declare such a thing

let alone enforce it even if he did. A "cash for clunkers" reboot to stimulate vehicle purchase would be a lot more believable.

The rest of these items are already in practice.

illusion that the virus is not as bad.

18. In all my years here, since 2004, have never seen a more important post as this.

Bravo, kpete!

What astounds me the most is that 1) there is such a devious kabal like this and 2) that there are only 24 hours in one day, that they are able to assimilate all happenings and devise this is amazing.

No offense to anyone, just wish we had new, intellectually forward, perhaps even revolutionary leadership to combat it all. Yet money and greed is an extremely powerful motivator. Evidently it has no match. Truth, justice, goodness, care for all mankind not enough.
