In a recent blog I mentioned how the media manipulates numbers by using a smaller base for stats, as they have for Covid percentage increases. The same technique was used to give Obama credit for economic “growth” after the Housing Crisis, and the same technique will be used to give Biden credit for economic “growth” after Covid. To illustrate, assume a GDP of $10 trillion in Year 1. A recession in Year 2 drops the GDP to $8 trillion. In Year 3, the economy recovers to $9 trillion. This is listed as a 12.5% “growth” in Year 3 ($1 Trillion/$8 Trillion) because you’re starting with a smaller base number ($8 Trillion), yet on the whole, the economy still hasn’t actually recovered to where it was in Year 1. Because of Covid, forced lockdowns of businesses across the U.S. led to a huge decrease in GDP and jobs. So now just by allowing businesses to re-open, we have “growth.” Joe Biden – our job-creating hero! 🙄

As with Kaepernick, the endorsement deals will continue to pour in for Rapinoe from “woke” corporations trying to suck up to other America-hating liberals, including the ones in power passing regulations & taxes that affect their businesses. Since Kaepernick is fading from memory, China-worshipping Nike is likely destined to make Rapinoe their next spokesperson.
If you start with 1 case and double it to 2 cases, the # of cases has increased 100 percent! An increase from 1 to 3 is a 200 percent increase! Ahhhhh….PANIC PANIC PANIC! If everyone is done hyperventilating, let’s observe one of the many tools of manipulation in the media toolbox…starting with a smaller base number. On July 5th official Covid cases in the U.S. dropped to 5,372. So when the numbers doubled and tripled in subsequent days (probably because the counting wasn’t done evenly through the week), the media breathlessly declared massive percentage growth in cases. Notice in the graph the numbers are tiny when you compare to the height of the Plandemic. And the media never seems to mention the number of hospitalizations & deaths, which continue to drop. You see, the Ruling Class is having trouble changing voting rules and pushing through other power-consolidation measures, in addition to the fact too many people are enjoying their return to freedom, so the fear must be re-stoked.
