"The peculiar advantage of panics is that they are the touchstones of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered."

“Yet panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them, and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their In fact, they have the same effect on secret traitors, which an imaginary apparition would have upon a private murderer. They sift out the hidden thoughts of man, and hold them up in public to the world. Many a disguised Tory has lately shown his head, that shall penitentially solemnize with curses the day on which Howe arrived upon the Delaware.”

The words " mystery ", " baffled " and " puzzled " are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, anything. One of those variants is " surprised ".

That’s why story below from last month, headlined “Nearly half of Americans don’t trust public health officials’ understanding of coronavirus” reads " ‘Perhaps the biggest surprise in all of our questions this week is the fact that there is that there is no gap between Republicans and Democrats,’ Rasmussen said."

From time immemorial, a literal crime family of bloodline-related generational Satanists have used a divide-and-conquer “strategy of tension”, in which agents of the conspiracy control both sides, while pretending to be at odds with one another. They work together behind the scenes to play both ends against the middle.

In the most recent

In the article, we learn that 49% of those polled have a lack of confidence in public health officials.

Cons, short for “confidence games”, can only succeed if a rube has trust, or “confidence” in the self-described con “artist” that is trying to take advantage of them.

I’m calling 49% a majority. A majority of those polled do not have confidence in public health officials.

It’s July 2020, and a majority of the public doesn’t trust public health officials because they know that those officials are lying.

Another current news article below says that, from late April to June, the share of Americans who say the coronavirus outbreak has been exaggerated – i.e., “has been made a bigger deal than it really is” – increased from about three-in-ten (29%) to nearly four-in-ten (38%).

The number of people who’ve gotten wise to the fact that the coronavirus outbreak has been made a bigger deal than it really is increased by roughly a third from April to June. And, as of June, half of those polled did not have confidence in public health officials.

As you review the recent news accounts I’ve collected below, you’ll see graphically how all of the cons are collapsing, at once.

Panics bring things and men to light which might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered.

Perhaps the biggest surprise in all of our questions this week is the fact that there is that there is no gap between Republicans and Democrats ,’ Rasmussen said

Forty-nine percent of U.S. voters don’t trust public health officials understand how to defeat the coronavirus, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. The poll found that 45% of American voters do trust that public health officials really understand the coronavirus and what policies are needed to overcome it.

“Voter confidence in public health officials is decidedly mixed – 45% express some confidence and 49% a lack of confidence,” Rasmussen said. “But most of the responses are lukewarm. Only 13% are Very Confident and 18% Not at All Confident.”

On Wednesday, Just the News reported about an erosion of public trust, including 10 things the public health establishment got wrong about coronavirus. From the start, the public health establishment has projected an air of certitude in its advice and policy prescriptions on COVID-19 belied by a record of error on many of the central questions.

“Perhaps the biggest surprise in all of our questions this week is the fact that there is that there is no gap between Republicans and Democrats,” Rasmussen said. “Forty-nine percent (49%) in both parties express some confidence in the ability of public health officials. Given how politicized every aspect of the pandemic has become, I expected to see a partisan gap.”

June 29, 2020 - Three Months In, Many Americans See Exaggeration, Conspiracy Theories and Partisanship in COVID-19 News

64% of U.S. adults say CDC mostly gets the facts about the outbreak right; 30% say the same about Trump and his administration

Americans give CDC highest marks, White House lowest on getting coronavirus facts right; wide partisan divides

As Americans continue to process a steady flow of information about the coronavirus outbreak – from changing infection and death rates to new testing protocols and evolving social distancing guidelines – they give the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health organizations the highest rating when it comes to getting the facts right. And they give Donald Trump and his administration the lowest rating for “getting the facts right” among five key sources of COVID-19 information, according to a Pew Research Center survey of 9,654 U.S. adults conducted June 4-10, 2020, as part of the American News Pathways project.

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults (64%) say the CDC and other public health organizations get the facts right “almost all” or “most” of the time when it comes to the coronavirus outbreak, while about half as many (30%) say the same about President Trump and his administration. Instead, a solid majority of Americans (65%) say the White House gets the facts right only “some of the time” (29%) or “hardly ever” (36%).

Republicans and Democrats disagree sharply on how often each of these five sources for news and information gets the facts about the coronavirus outbreak right. Majorities of Democrats and independents who lean toward the Democratic Party say the CDC and other health groups (76%), governors and state governments (62%), local news media (62%) and the national news media (60%) usually get the facts right. Just 9% of Democrats say this about Trump and his administration. It’s a different story among Republicans and Republican leaners: About half of Republicans (54%) say Trump and the White House get the facts right at least most of the time – about on par with how many say the same about the CDC (51%). Republicans are less likely to say the same of governors and state governments (45%), the local news media (38%) and the news media in general (25%).

Increasing shares of Americans, led by Republicans, believe the outbreak has been overblown; level of attention to COVID-19 news has dropped

Growing share of Americans, particularly Republicans, say outbreak has been exaggerated

From late April, when the pandemic dominated the national news conversation, to early June, when demonstrations to protest the death of George Floyd began getting widespread attention, the share of Americans who say the coronavirus outbreak has been exaggerated – i.e., “has been made a bigger deal than it really is” – increased from about three-in-ten (29%) to nearly four-in-ten (38%).

The increase is particularly stark among Republicans: Just under half (47%) said this in late April, compared with nearly two-thirds (63%) in early June. The share of Democrats who say the outbreak has been overhyped increased just slightly, from 14% to 18%.

After three months, fewer Americans ‘very closely’ following COVID-19 newsIn addition, as the outbreak grinds on, the share of Americans who say they are following the news about the coronavirus outbreak very closely continues to decline. Nearly six-in-ten (57%) were very closely following COVID-19 news in late March, but that figure has declined steadily since. As of early June, about four-in-ten (39%) say they are following this news story very closely – roughly the same percentage who said in that time period that they were very closely following news of the protests following the killing of George Floyd, a Black man who was killed by a white police officer during an arrest.
