Fire Rochelle Walensky

In an administration plagued with incompetence, the Centers for Disease Control stands out.

According to JustTheNews:

The CDC found itself hoist with its own petard by making 25 basic statistical and numerical errors related to COVID-19, particularly with regard to children, while purporting to expose COVID vaccine misinformation, according to an analysis led by University of California San Francisco epidemiologists.

The preprint, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, documented 20 errors that "exaggerated the severity of the COVID-19 situation" and three that "simultaneously exaggerated and downplayed" severity, while one each was neutral or exaggerated vaccine risks. 

More than half were from 2022, but nearly as many were made in the first two months of 2023 as in all of 2021, they found.

These errors were hideous, suggesting an agency filled with ignoramii who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near medical data, let alone taking a government salary for it, nor advising the public, but they weren't ordinary errors.

They involved inflated figures on child deaths from COVID, falsely claiming that COVID was a "Top Five" cause of all deaths in children while conflating actual child deaths from COVID with deaths from other causes that were with COVID, skewing the COVID death totals sharply higher. It claimed that pediatric deaths from COVID amounted to 4% of all child deaths -- failing to do the math properly, as the figure was 0.04%. They urged the use of PAVLOXID on children infected with COVID, despite studies showing that there was no benefit at all to them.

The errors were heavily weighted toward exaggerating COVID's risk to children. Fifteen of the 16 pertaining to children's data "enhanced the perceived risk" of the virus and more than half the total errors involved mortality statistics, with the CDC data tracker "consistently" reporting higher deaths for children and adolescents than did NCHS.

The errors all skewed one way -- towards lockdowns and closed schools -- which suggested that someone was massaging the data for political ends, and to heck with the science or the public's well being.

That's dereliction of duty of the highest order and with that many errors, most of which took months to correct, if they were corrected at all, it presents a credibility problem for the CDC. Who in their right mind would believe these incompetents, who can't even do basic statistical math, or even long division correctly, on public health pronouncements with wide-ranging consequences across society? Someone needs to be fired for having that many incompetents on staff.

But it may not have even been incompetence -- it may have been corruption, calling for the resignation of the director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, no matter what it was, and Congress needs to rat this out. 

By the wildest of coincidences, who was it who was the loudest advocate of closed schools and masks for toddlers and all the other deleterious effects that the COVID response had on children? 

But of course -- it was exactly what the teachers' unions were calling for. And by the wildest of coincidences, the teachers unions were literally caught red-handed issuing CDC its marching orders, despite having zero knowledge of medicine or public health. They did it under cover of darkness, with both sides failing to inform the public, and Walensky laughing the matter off as just taking input from all sorts of people.

Remember this, from 2021? Back then, I argued:

The Centers for Disease Control, which bills itself to the public as an agency all about "science," is actually pretty political.

So in late February, when the agency released its disappointing recommendations to slow and halt school re-openings, despite the pandemic passing its peak, the obvious options for outdoor learning, and the success of school reopenings in Europe, and among private schools here, many assumed they were just a little slow on the uptake, and maybe going by their outdated research.

Nope, they were parroting what the American Federation of Teachers told them to say, word for word at times, according to a report in the New York Post

The conclusion here? Show me an order from the right political source, and CDC will make the data "fit" even if it makes them look like ignorant boobs. They don't care. They mean to please.

What a low, low state the CDC has fallen into with this damning report from top medical practitioners who took a good look at the shoddy outfit Walensky was running.

If this isn't a firing offense, what is? That political pawn has compromised the great field of medicine for scummy political aims from the worst of the worst among corrupt political operatives and done great damage to her own credibility, her agency's credibility and the American people who ended up the victims of these policies. Throw her out and if it's found that she knew of or went along with this corruption, yank her medical license. Someone like this can't be allowed to treat patients.She's a danger to the medical profession.
