The Media Has "Reported" A Hundred Times that Trump "Dissolved" the NSC Epidemic Unit.
This Is a Lie.

Shocking, I know.

Tim Morrison is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and former senior director for counterproliferation and biodefense on the National Security Council.
President Trump gets his share of criticism — some warranted, much not. But recently the president’s critics have chosen curious ground to question his response to the coronavirus outbreak since it began spreading from Wuhan, China, in December.

It has been alleged by multiple officials of the Obama administration, including in The Post, that the president and his then-national security adviser, John Bolton, "dissolved the office" at the White House in charge of pandemic preparedness. Because I led the very directorate assigned that mission, the counterproliferation and biodefense office, for a year and then handed it off to another official who still holds the post, I know the charge is specious.

...

He notes that Trump did shrink the NSC -- because Obama had bloated it from 100 persons to 400 in just a few years.

But the NSC retained its epidemic personnel -- just merged with biodefense and counterprolifereation.

One such move at the NSC was to create the counterproliferation and biodefense directorate, which was the result of consolidating three directorates into one, given the obvious overlap between arms control and nonproliferation, weapons of mass destruction terrorism, and global health and biodefense. It is this reorganization that critics have misconstrued or intentionally misrepresented. If anything, the combined directorate was stronger because related expertise could be commingled.

So you can see how the media eagerly misleads the public -- yes, an "office" was dissolved. But most of the personnel making up that office were retained, and added to a new, merged office.

So they say "the office" was dissolved and intend you to take that to mean that the epidemic unit was disbanded.

That's a lie, but that's what they want you to believe.

They are the enemy of the people and a reckoning is coming.

Via Tami, John Bolton is now tweeting out the article quoted above:


@AmbJohnBolton Mar 14

Claims that streamlining NSC structures impaired our nation's bio defense are false. Global health remained a top NSC priority, and its expert team was critical to effectively handling the 2018-19 Africa Ebola crisis. The angry Left just can't stop attacking, even in a crisis.

...

@AmbJohnBolton 49 minutes ago

Reporting that alleges the Trump Administration dissolved NSC offices related to our biodefense are both false and misleading. Listen to those who ran the effort. This is a must-read for everyone who values truth over politics in a time of crisis.

Here's an update to the last post: The NYT can't stop forging the "news."

Of course CNN's Oliver Darcy, one of Zucker's attack boys in their Doxxing, Deplatforming, and Blackmailing Private Citizens Unit, saw some fake news and couldn't wait to jump in:

The election is a little more than seven months out. In three months this paranoid neurotic national episode won't even make the back page. Remember when IMPEACHMENT was a thing?

The Media just reminds and clarifies that it must be destroyed as it is currently constituted and we here are happy to oblige.

If you step back, you see the strategy the Democrats are using.

In this case, they are pushing back on Private + Government versus Big Government.

They want Big Government, and that is also why they were lying about Google/Alphabet.

They do not want people to see how quickly the private sector can ramp things up.

They have a huge stake in this.

139 As I commented last thread, and this makes even Morrison's statement insufficiently aggressive - the NSC was not established to replicate the entire national agency and department structure (though of course that's been the inexorable trend since it was set up).

I'm not talking about the actual *displacement* of normal cabinet or agency influence by the NSC and NSA (Kissinger v. SecState Rogers, the classic example).

But in terms of bureaucratic infrastructure.

The WH doesn't need an NSC with a "pandemic office" to hear/know about anything of importance on the public health front. That will come into the flow anyway, via normal channels.

Anyway, this is kind of the classic dumb thing the "press" seizes on, and completely misrepresents, has for years, it's not new.

150 It's funny. I don't think Trump has done everything perfectly. How could he? I mean we are literally discussing a illness that literally didn't exist 3 months ago. In the last 3 months it was detected, the virus isolated, the symptoms determined, and a testing procedure developed. During that time lots of assumptions were made that were false, we probably did some things we didn't need to do, and didn't do some things we should have done.

But, still, sheesh. Things seem to have swung into gear pretty damn quickly and aggressively. So whether the NSC was there or not, what difference would it have actually made?

And thing is, I don;t see other countries doing a hell of a lot better. Maybe Russia, Taiwan, and Korea. but it is hard to say - each country has had it's own challenges. I'd argue most of Europe has done a face plant. I'd argue the U.S. has done reasonably well under the circumstances.

305 over at WUWT there's a good piece on the psychology of panics, and the writer excerpts parts of James Thurbers 1913 story, "The Day the Flood Came." What I'll repost is a bit long, but a perfect illustration of what we're going through:

Thurber's story is based on his life as a young boy living near the Ohio river, and relates the experiences of his Aunt Edith Taylor and his own youthful recollection about the "Great Run" of the afternoon in Columbus city, which illustrates the mob mentality very well...

"After very heavy rain on March 12, 1913 a rumour spread that the River Ohio was in flood and the water would rush towards the city as the dam had broken. Thurber describes someone running, probably because they were late. One or two others joined the runner for their own reasons. Other people heard the noise and came out on to the High Street to see what was happening. Perhaps already aware of the rumour, upon seeing the runner, yet more townsfolk started running towards the East for safety. As more people did so, yet more followed, and shouts of "the Dam has broken" could be heard. In the market place people heard the commotion and joined them, and soon, upwards of two thousand citizens were running, to save their lives from the flood.

Thurber's Aunt Edith Taylor was attending a movie theatre and joined the mob;

"When I reached Grant Avenue, I was so spent that Dr. H.P Mallory passed me, there was a boy behind him on roller-skates and Dr. Mallory mistook the swishing of the skates for the sound of rushing water. He eventually reached the Columbus School for Girls where he collapsed."

Food was left on the hob and front doors left open, as the people ran to escape the rushing waters of the Dam they were sure had collapsed, a notion reinforced by thousands of others of a like mind.

The militia drove through the city announcing the news was false, but still the mob ran up to 12 miles in order to save their lives. Eventually when it became clear that flood water was not pursuing them, the mob mentality began to ease. Slowly people returned to their homes realizing that even the most sober and moderate of citizens had lost their heads over an unsubstantiated rumour, reinforced by the actions of a runner unconnected with the matter."

307 Now that I think about it, maybe we need a rating system driven by both readers and the targets of any "reporting".

Like Twitter like/retweets or Ebay favorites rating.

The only reguirement the FCC or the org that monitors ads and such would be that anybody claiming they are a news gatherer/reporter would have to post visibly what they're accuracy rating is.

And none of this partisan fact checker crap. Let's see some ratings with names that can be traced or circumstances can be read about at a neutral site.

I've long thought that all so called reporters should have a rating that shows their expertise, their education, their partisanship and their accuracy.


Wrapped up in a rating system. Sure we know it will be corrupted but it will work for awhile maybe.

Make them show their ratings.

Another good one would be a neutral site that rated all of the talking heads. Quick alphabetic lookup so you could check the partisanship and previous accuracy rating.

We know they're still communicating with each other just no on some email server and they're also being careful who they invite.

Aren't there laws against collusion and conniving among businesses?

360 In fairness, I'm not sure the Thurber anecdote illustrates the irrationality of mobs. If you wander outside and a bunch of people are running in one direction scared shitless, that's some evidence that there's something to run away from. They could be wrong; and you can draw a wrong conclusion from limited evidence. But it's not unthinking. And sometimes the difference between being in serious trouble or not is acting quickly. You don't always get to deliberate.

363 The gov of WI today declared that all bars and restaurants in WI must restrict numbers of customers in their establishments to 50 or less. Regardless of size. Tiny little hole in the wall bar that can hold 25 people? You can cram 50 in - no problemo with this pronouncement. Yuge place that can hold 500 people? 50 is the limit Comrade. What a stupid, stupid thing.

A friend and bar owner called me after this was announced in the media and asked what I thought he should do. I said, make them enforce it. Are they really going to send cops out to count people in every bar and restaurant? I f_cking doubt it, outside of political retribution cases. I told him just to be careful what pics they post on social media. Don't rub their noses in non-compliance.

Next step is to shut down eating and drinking establishments like Pritzker the Hutt did in IL. That would be a lot more problematic in WI. Pseudo speakeasy plans are already in the works in the bar owner community.

Did it here. Denver (not CO, thank G-d, but Denver) just closed restaurants.

All Denver restaurants and bars will close with the exception of delivery, drive-through and carry-out options beginning Tuesday morning through May 11 as the novel coronavirus continues to spread in Colorado.
Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and other city officials announced this change, and others, during a press conference Monday morning to update the community on their efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus, also called COVID-19.


As my buddy at work put it, they're flattening restaurants and bars under the curve.

Smart. The case that triggered the outbeak scare in Park City Utah was a bar employee that had traveled to Europe, then went to work sick and infected fellow staff and patrons. Now the whole county is shut down because of that patient zero case and how it spread.

Another case was Australians tourists that BROKE QUARANTINE to go skiing. *borrows alex's flamethrower and burninates the dumb tourists*

They never called Obama on "passing the buck" when he recited like a mantra "Bush's economy".

However, that can still be the case and Obama not be passing the buck, simply because there ARE *externalities*.

Externalities exist--it doesn't mean you're "Passing the buck" because you don't say "Yeah, it was all me. We have racism in America, because I'm taking the blame for slavery."

There is some truth to this. The market was due for a correction. A sharp correction is usually followed by a sharp rise. But it is also sending an economic signal to the government that we need to know when this will end. We at least need to know metrics that will mean we are near the end.

Long term lower energy prices are good. Short term they signal that the economy is falling. Demand is falling. And many jobs are linked to energy. So it would have a short term negative effect, while signaling that the demand simply isn't there.

Gah, y'all know better.

618 >>Frackers are not the entire market are they? Most businesses celebrate lower oil prices.

Nor did I say they were. You have a habit of putting words in people's mouths.

No, most businesses do not celebrate when market prices get set at a level where the sale price makes it difficult in some cases, impossible in others to make money.

622 "No incumbent gets reelected when things are this bad."

Two points on that:
1) November is a long way off
2) Counterpoint: WWII.

The biggest difference is that in WWII, the press weren't a bunch of America-hating fags.

This might cost Trump the election. It might not. I am not setting my hair on fire yet when we're still 7.5 months out.

671 The democrats best buddies, the Kremlin and China, along with demorat party seem to find our President and nation to blame for what the demorats and China have accomplished. China provided the coronavirus and is now attempting to cast themselves as saviors of the pandemic (they caused) with their solutions of fierce attacks on its citizens and forcing isolations of people be sealing them up in public buildings. demorats inviting world pandemics with decades of FORCED open borders, think they can just blame our President for what they have forcibly made possible with open borders.
China and demorats once again think they can just cast blame at the innocent, to insulate themselves from what they have done/accomplished.
Their world government solution ? Forced totalitarianism, end of freedoms and harsh repressive governance.
Note; they know they have to have you disarmed for this.
