What will we have learned; how long will we remember, and how far back from neo-Marxist extremism will the political pendulum swing before we lose the current American generations so fortunately inherited? Conditions must sometimes get very bad before we wake up to...
Maybe The CDC Has Outgrown its Usefulness
When we talk about what’s essential and what isn’t, maybe the CDC, created in 1942 as the Office of National Defense, Malaria Control Activities, really isn’t anymore. !t has morphed into a cash cow for every nutty health scheme that comes along.
In 1946 it became the Communicable Disease Center (CDC) to focus its efforts on viruses and communicable diseases. So, why wasn’t it prepared for what the Chinese launched on us in 2020? If you haven’t seen the CDC facilities here in Atlanta, Ga., you have a treat coming. They have spent lavishly on visuals, millions on prevention efforts that haven’t gone anywhere and I can’t even estimate what they’ve spent on travel and junkets. It’s enormous, not to mention the millions they have donated to the Chinese Labs in Wuhan and the discredited WHO, the World Health Organization.
If we follow the money, we see that in the first decade of this century, the CDC became a huge bureaucracy influenced by “Big Pharma,” losing both its focus and its independence in the process. The change was documented in a 2007 report, “CDC-Off Center,” produced by now deceased Senator Tom Coburn. He wondered why the CDC spent millions of tax payer dollars on non-disease topics like studying gun violence (not violence by guns), the problems of parental discipline, children’s health problems in schools, the health problems of society’s perverts and worse, the flypaper trap against all open discussion, racial and ethnic issues.
Where does CDC’s budget come from and who oversees it? Well, supposedly it’s the US Congress if they weren’t so intent on trashing the President, but their budget is approved by rote. Nobody oversee’s it!
The CDC’s 2017 budget included $1.1 billion on chronic disease prevention, $215 million on environmental health and $285 million on injury prevention. Are there not other agencies that address those issues? Is the CDC wasting our money just to support a growing bureaucracy or to enrich the “experts” who have managerial control over the agency’s medical discoveries and agenda? Think copyrights and cash!
This goes back to the original question: Why didn’t the CDC prepare America for the China Virus?
During the Swine Flu epidemic in 2009, Obama’s first year, the national stockpile of virus appropriate masks and ventilators were depleted. Comes 2020, when we need ’em, they weren’t there. Why? Maybe the CDC funds spent on gay and lesbian issues or parental discipling could have been better used to resupply the depleted stockpile. Just saying!
Clearly, America was not prepared to meet the China Virus onslaught, but South Korea and Taiwan were and we didn’t listen to them. Our political leaders are now over run by “experts” in national health issues, apart from the top down CDC, FDA and NIH, bureaucracies now demand a seat at the “experts” table so they can dip their oar in the waters of a panicked society and squeeze even more taxpayers money from the government. They spread fear and loathing!
I mentioned the FDA. What, one may ask, was their role in hindering restocking America with new medical equipment and technology? Well, to confirm their need, a bureaucracy must at least appear to be relevant. Since the end of George Bush’s last term and into Obama’s, the FDA took five years to approve a new ventilator design, a cause and effect of an ossified, bureaucracy. The issue has been revealed.
We don’t need China, they need us. Maybe we no longer need a CDC either. The Deep State is entrenched bureaucracies protecting themselves.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!
