No, Trump did not “disband” WH pandemic office

Numerous headlines have harped on the disingenuous “reporting” that Trump “disbanded,” “eliminated,” and “closed” the White House pandemic response office.

ABC News: “Trump disbanded NSC pandemic unit that experts had praised”
MSNBC: It’s not ‘nasty’ to ask why Trump disbanded his global health unit
Boston Globe: “Trump attacks CDC over coronavirus preparedness, though he eliminated office dedicated to pandemic prevention”
WaPo: “I ran the White House pandemic office. Trump closed it.”

The impression intended by these misrepresentations of the actual facts is that Trump is incompetent, careless, and / or unconcerned with public health. None of those things are remotely true. Many of the top experts from that office are still there, they’re just working under the umbrella of the counterproliferation and biodefense office on the National Security Council (NSC).

Tim Morrison, former senior director for counterproliferation and biodefense on the NSC, explains the streamlining of departments and offices that took place to increase efficiency.

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.

. . . . It is true that the Trump administration has seen fit to shrink the NSC staff. But the bloat that occurred under the previous administration clearly needed a correction. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, congressional oversight committees and members of the Obama administration itself all agreed the NSC was too large and too operationally focused (a departure from its traditional role coordinating executive branch activity). As The Post reported in 2015, from the Clinton administration to the Obama administration’s second term, the NSC’s staff “had quadrupled in size, to nearly 400 people.” That is why Trump began streamlining the NSC staff in 2017.

The left, of course, does not think logically. Their solution to everything is more government, bigger government, more dedicated (and overstaffed) offices of this and that, and, naturally, throwing lots of American taxpayers’ money at whatever the perceived problem. More employees and more money is always better, even if the results don’t support that premise.

Just look at the mountains of money thrown at “the war on poverty” to see how this works. Or take a look at the stats regarding black employment, life spans, relative health, and income levels from the start of Democrats’ purported efforts to help black people back in the ’60s. Most of these markers are the same as or worse than they were when they started tossing money and opening useless offices and whole agencies to address the perceived problems. Try to streamline or adopt plans that would actually have a positive affect, and they scream “RAAAACISM!” even though their own policies have done nothing to improve—and have arguably negatively impacted—the lives of black Americans over the past 60 years.

So it’s no wonder that Democrats and the media upon learning that overlapping offices and departments have been streamlined into one cannot comprehend that it has made the U.S.’s pandemic response stronger, not weaker. In fact, Morrison notes, since he left the NSC and staff cuts have continued, the biodefense staff has not been affected.

Morrison continues:

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.

The reduction of force in the NSC has continued since I departed the White House. But it has left the biodefense staff unaffected — perhaps a recognition of the importance of that mission to the president, who, after all, in 2018 issued a presidential memorandum to finally create real accountability in the federal government’s expansive biodefense system.

Richard Goldberg, another former NSC official, also pushed back against the media hoax:

So the White House pandemic office still exists, its top researchers and best professionals in their fields are still there. They just now work within the counterproliferation and biodefense office. The horror.

No, Trump did not cut CDC work from “49 to 10 countries”

Democrats and the media have also falsely claimed that Trump slashed the CDC’s global pandemic work. They “reported” that the CDC was forced to cut its global efforts from 49 to 10 countries.

While this move appears to have been proposed at one point in 2018, it never happened. In fact, the CDC was instead provided more funding that year for its global pandemic efforts.

Rather alarmingly, the false claim is also made at the .gov Senate Democrats official website.

And it’s probably, right now, most dangerous and most egregious when it comes to Coronavirus. It wasn’t just that the president cut CDC last year—it follows years of drastic cuts to the global health division at CDC by the Trump Administration. In 2018, CDC was forced to reduce the number of countries it operated in from 49 to 10. That’s how bad it is.

Mother Jones: “Here Are 17 Ways the Trump Administration Bungled Its Coronavirus Response”
Business Insider: “Trump spent the past 2 years slashing the government agencies responsible for handling the coronavirus outbreak”

The New York Times claimed in an article entitled, “White House Asks Congress for Billions to Fight Coronavirus,” that “In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention narrowed its epidemic work to 10 countries from 49, declaring victory on the global health security agenda started by the previous administration.”

To source this lie, they link to another New York Times article that specifically notes in the title that the “White House Hails Success of Disease-Fighting Program, and Plans Deep Cuts.” Plans deep cuts.

Those cuts, however, never materialized, and apparently no one at the former gold standard of newspapers bothered to check. Nor did any of the other “news” outlets reporting this false claim.

Factcheck.org reports:

As the COVID-19 disease caused by the new coronavirus has spread around the world, a number of politicians, news organizations and public figures have made the false claim that the Trump administration cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s anti-pandemic work in over 40 countries to just 10. The CDC told us that’s not true.

The claim appears to have been based solely on outdated news reports from early 2018 that said the CDC was preparing to dramatically reduce its work helping to prevent infectious-disease epidemics. Those reports said much of that work on the Global Health Security Agenda, a pact between over 60 nations that began in 2014, had been funded by a five-year, nearly $600 million supplemental package that was dwindling. That one-time funding, which Congress originally appropriated in response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa in 2014, ran out at the end of September 2019.

The director of the CDC’s Center for Global Health did say at the time that, without additional funding, its Division of Global Health Protection “will have to scale its global health security portfolio to focus efforts based on existing resources,” as the Wall Street Journal first reported in January 2018. If that happened, the official said the CDC would shift its focus to just 10 “priority countries” and “plan for the completion of its country-based programs” in 39 other nations, the Journal’s story said.

Those hypothetical cuts were avoided, however, because Congress later provided more funding for the CDC’s global health programs, the CDC told us in a statement.

Not only did the CDC receive greater funding in 2018 but has every year since, and Trump is requesting even more CDC funding for FY2021.

Factcheck.org continues:

CDC operating budget plans show that its funding for global public health protection — which includes global disease detection and emergency response and global public health capacity — increased from $58 million in fiscal year 2017 to around $108 million in fiscal years 2018 and 2019. (And that does not include any remaining supplemental funds available for use.) The increases included nearly $50 million more each year for CDC’s global health security initiatives.

Those amounts went up again in fiscal year 2020, when the CDC was awarded $183 million for global public health protection, overall, and $125 million specifically for its global health security efforts. For fiscal year 2021, President Donald Trump has requested that CDC funding for global disease detection and other programs be increased further — to $225 million total, with $175 million going directly to global health security.

It’s difficult to know whether this particular hoax was down to sloppy journalism or a malicious desire to say anything, to tell any lie, to harm the president. Maybe it’s both?

No, Trump did not refuse WHO testing kits

Another hot topic hoax Democrats and the media have been pushing is Joe Biden’s claim during Sunday’s Democrat debate that President Trump refused an offer of Wuhan coronavirus test kits by the World Health Organization (WHO).

No, look, the World Health Organization offered — offered the testing kits that they have available and to give it to us now. We refused them. We did not want to buy them. We did not want to get them from them. We wanted to make sure we had our own. I think he said something like we have the best scientists in America, or something to that effect.

Biden appears to have come to this incorrect conclusion from a Politico piece entitled, “How testing failures allowed coronavirus to sweep the U.S.” The subhead reads, “The Trump administration’s decision to forgo a World Health Organization test and create its own had fateful consequences, experts say.”

The media ran with it. Of course.

The Hill: “Trump health officials deny that US rejected WHO diagnostic test”
Esquire: “Why Did the Trump Administration Reject the WHO Coronavirus Test?”

The problems here are many. First, WHO doesn’t actually provide materials for testing to first world countries, it focuses its resources on developing nations that need assistance. Second, WHO acts as a clearinghouse of sorts for the various testing models of countries that have developed tests; a country can use whichever of the formulas (or recipes) that it likes. Third, the U.S. has historically always developed its own tests and provided its own materials.

From Politifact (yes, really):

The countries WHO helped are ones that lack the virology lab horsepower that exists across the United States. The outreach work by the Pan American Health Organization is a case in point.

The group is WHO’s arm in the Americas. It conducted trainings and sent materials to conduct tests to 29 nations. The list included Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and many others.

The group said it focused most of its efforts on “countries with the weakest health systems.”

“No discussions occurred between WHO and CDC about WHO providing COVID-19 tests to the United States,” said WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris. “This is consistent with experience since the United States does not ordinarily rely on WHO for reagents or diagnostic tests because of sufficient domestic capacity.”

. . . . WHO lists seven different approaches — including that of China, the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, France and Germany — each one targeting different parts of the COVID-19 genetic profile.

Christopher Mores, a global health professor at George Washington University, said that when faced with an outbreak, the WHO will usually adopt the best test that a research group brings forward.

The German one became the approach WHO circulated as its preferred model.

Aid groups, such as the Pan American Health Organization, took that model and built their training and supplies around it. If the model was like the recipe in a cookbook, the supplies were the ingredients in a home meal kit from Blue Apron.

Any country could use whatever recipe it preferred, and even if the United States had picked the WHO’s protocol, it wouldn’t need the WHO to sell it the materials to follow it. Germany released its protocol on Jan. 17, but the U.S. decided to have the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention develop its own. That protocol was published Jan. 28.

The so-called “testing kits” don’t exist in the sense that people seem to think of them. WHO doesn’t send out a physical box with the ingredients needed to conduct the test to first world countries; instead, they act as an “information exchange.”

PJMedia has more on this:

On March 7, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Stephen Hahn made it clear that there were no WHO “testing kits.”

“We’ve seen reports about a WHO test, and that WHO is distributing a diagnostic test to countries. And I want to be really clear about this: We’ve been in constant contact with WHO. The WHO does not have its own test that it is distributing globally. It has only posted on its website protocols from some test developers, including our own CDC,” Hahn said, the Federalist’s Margot Cleveland noted. He clarified that the WHO doesn’t actually develop tests, but it does “act as an information exchange.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar explained that the “test kit” the WHO put out was not its own, but rather the “recipe protocol for a lab-developed test” from the Berlin test. “That’s what’s often been called—misleadingly—the WHO test,” Azar explained. The WHO has also distributed the CDC’s recipe, for what it’s worth.

In other words, that’s just the way it is done, the way it has long been done. Our CDC’s coronavirus test formula has been distributed by WHO since January 28th.

Bashing Trump for “rejecting” WHO “testing kits” is nothing but an exercise in Democrat-media hoaxing to create out of nothing a sense of hysteria, outrage, panic, and anger.

Trump Refers to the Coronavirus as a ‘Hoax’.

What's True: During a Feb. 28, 2020, campaign rally in South Carolina, President Donald Trump likened the Democrats' criticism of his administration's response to the new coronavirus outbreak to their efforts to impeach him, saying "this is their new hoax."

What's False: Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the coronavirus itself a hoax.

Liberal actor Jussie Smollett told police that he was attacked outside his apartment building by two men in ski masks. He reported they called him racial and homophobic slurs and said "this is MAGA country,”. (Jan. 2019)

On February 20, 2019, Smollett was charged by a grand jury with a class 4 felony for filing a false police report. The next day, Smollett surrendered himself at the Chicago Police Department's Central Booking station. On March 26, 2019, all charges filed against Smollett were dropped, with Judge Steven Watkins ordering the public court file sealed.

On April 12, 2019, the city of Chicago filed a lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Cook County against Smollett for the cost of overtime authorities expended investigating the alleged attack, totalling $130,105.15. In November 2019, Smollett filed a counter-suit against the city of Chicago alleging he was the victim of "mass public ridicule and harm" and arguing he should not be made to reimburse the city for the cost of the investigation. On February 11, 2020, after further investigation by a special prosecutor was completed, Smollett was indicted again by a Cook County grand jury on six counts pertaining to making four false police reports. On June 12, 2020, a judge struck down Smollett's claim that his February charge violated the principle of double jeopardy.

The Covington Catastrophe (Jan. 2019)

National media outlets pounced on a selectively edited video from the March for Life that showed Native American activist Nathan Phillips beating a drum in front of a boisterous group of boys from Covington Catholic High School.
REUTERS/Madalyn McGarvey

Phillips originally told The Washington Post the students swarmed him while he was preparing to leave the Indigenous People’s March scheduled for the same day. Phillips originally said one student, who later identified himself as high school junior Nick Sandmann, blocked his path from leaving as he tried to do so. The extended video shows that wasn’t the case: Phillips approached the high school boys during their cheers, not the other way around. Some of the people with Phillips were directing racially charged language at the students, not the other way around.

Phillips told a second variation of his story to the Detroit Free Press. Phillips claimed he was playing the role of peacemaker by getting between the students and four “old black individuals,” whom he claimed the students were attacking. “They were in the process of attacking these four black individuals,” Phillip tolds the Michigan paper. “I was there and I was witnessing all of this … As this kept on going on and escalating, it just got to a point where you do something or you walk away, you know? You see something that is wrong and you’re faced with that choice of right or wrong.”

“These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey, and I stood in between them and so they needed their pounds of flesh and they were looking at me for that,” he added. Extended video shows that account also isn’t accurate. The four individuals Phillips referenced were members of the Black Hebrew Israelites and they launched racist and anti-gay slurs at the high school students, not the other way around. (RELATED: Nathan Phillips Kept Changing His Story, Kept Getting It Wrong)

Anti-Semitic Vandal Exposed As Democratic Activist (Nov. 2018)

Anti-Semitic vandalism in New York City turned out to be the work of a Democratic activist, according to police. It wasn’t a hoax — the anti-Semitic vandalism was real — but the suspect wasn’t the right-winger some had assumed him to be. The man police arrested, based on surveillance footage, was 26-year-old James Polite, who had actually interned for City Hall on anti-hate issues.

Trump-Inspired Racist Blaze At Black Church Was Carried Out By Black Church-goer (Nov. 2016)

Leftist media outlets ran headlines like “A Black Church Burned in the Name of Trump” after a black church in Greenville, Mississippi, was set on fire and spray painted with the words “Vote Trump.”

The Washington Post’s original coverage of the incident read in part,” Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons called the fire a ‘hateful and cowardly act,’ sparked by the incendiary rhetoric of GOP nominee Donald Trump during his presidential campaign.” But the church was set on fire by one of the church’s own congregants, who is black.

Joe Biden’s former White House stenographer said the vice president’s public speaking ability has deteriorated significantly since leaving office to the point where he’s "not the same Joe Biden."

The media remain oblivious to complaints they regularly make generalizations and assume malicious intent among large swaths of voters. They then proceed to act as if millions of voters are the target, then no individual voter will be offended. If that didn’t anger Trump voters enough, the media have used the outrage over this gambit to assume the mantle of victimhood. They recast legitimate criticism as irrationally threatening, and disparage any colleagues in conservative media or who otherwise step out of line to question their groupthink.

If we want a society where our leaders act virtuously, their critics need to be virtuous as well. The only way to really hold Trump accountable is to hold ourselves and our institutions to higher standards, so that when we reject mean-spiritedness we do it according to a set of principles we all agree on.

Trump merely exposed existing contradictions, where the decorum and civility of official Washington had already become fig leaves for wielding power in a way that ran roughshod over the desires of “deplorable” and “irredeemable” citizens. Until we all change our own behavior and treat each other with respect regardless of our disagreements, we’re going to continue to get the nasty discourse we deserve, regardless of who’s president or how much the media feels entitled to complain about their rhetoric.

Everything from the mainstream media is a blatant lie. Seems every commie propagandist from the old Soviet Union is now here in the USA writing in support of Democrats while bashing Trump and the USA.

CNN anchor Don Lemon, currently being sued for allegedly making an obscene sexual advance to a bar patron, claimed on the air that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men” — a false assertion given that Lemon conceded that more Americans have been killed in ideologically driven terrorist attacks by Islamists since 2001 than by “white men.” Note that African-American males, currently about 6 percent of the population, are arrested and charged as responsible for 52 percent of homicides each year.
