Baffling, isn't it? Real video of empty hospitals and zero lines of people waiting to be tested. Could it be the time of day that explains this mystery? I ask to know what YOU think. While on that subject, please go back to 1997 on YouTube to watch a few WAG THE DOG clips, plus Director Barry Levinson's long discussion with Lawrence O'Donnell about Trump and Wag the Dog, well worth watching, on The Last Word.

This is the video above, not the news clip from South Africa in the comment below, which I hope you will take the time to watch, and then comment? After this Democrat campaign primary season and after 4 years of Donald Trump, nothing surprises me any more, although of course we all saw the very real footage of the Director of WHO declaring a Pandemic; we saw the footage of the UN Secretary General and I wrote an article when the Wuhan physician who first noted coronavirus later died....

If you generally dislike frustration at huge inexplicable ironies or the feeling you might have been lied to by powerful people for someone else's financial gain, then stop reading this right now, and for sure, don't watch this video....(Personally, the video cheered me up about as much as watching Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti!)


Critical Thinking is still Alive and Well in America

More good news? Citizen reporters go & do what the media won't!

Produced by Dana Ashlie


I am reminded of Wag the Dog, of 12 Monkies, of Potemkin Villages, of the Emperor's New Clothes, and of Guy de Maupassant's The Necklace, in which a woman works her whole life for a necklace that turns out to be plaster.

I was in 7th grade at the Eastern Illinois University Laboratory School, and was in play of a well known story, the Emperor's New Clothes. I personally played one of the 2 swindlers who convince the almost naked emperor and all of his retinue and all of the people in the capitol that the non-existent emperor's new clothes are just magnificent. I don't remember the precise points of logic used to do so, but I remember that I had 365 lines, and I had to memorize all of them.

At 72, I have had 6 decades of always being truthful, as I think most of OpEdNews readers know very well, especially after a very long study of Gandhi and Satyagraha, meaning "clinging to Truth."

What does this video clip make YOU think of?


Then this coin has another side of the discussion:
