The clock is ticking on Donald Trump's inevitable eviction from the People's (White) House. And in his remaining days Trump is wholly consumed with futile legal gambits and his burning obsession to overturn the decision of the American people and convince the nation that he actually won the presidential election by a landslide. Mental illness is truly a devastating disease.

Meanwhile, Trump has abandoned any and all pretenses to governing the country. That's especially evident in his callous neglect of the coronavirus pandemic that is rapidly escalating in severity. The threat to millions around the world has even reached the top of the elitist crowd, including Fox News chairman, Rupert Murdoch. It was reported Friday that he managed to slip ahead of the line to get himself vaccinated in England.
“A convoy of Range Rovers delivered the 89-year-old billionaire to a dedicated vaccine centre in Henley, Oxfordshire, where normal hours are understood to have been extended at the last minute.”
That's right, Rupert Murdoch, whose network has repeatedly downplayed the COVID-19 pandemic, mocked solutions such as mask wearing and social distancing, promoted quack cures like hydroxychloroquine and bleach, and propped up the irresponsible lies of Trump and his Republican confederates, will be safe and secure thanks to the socialist National Health Service of the U.K. It's good to know that wealthy octogenarians are protected from this disease so that they can oversee their media empires that place the rest of the nation/world in peril.
And that's precisely what Murdoch's network did on Thursday night. Tucker Carlson's primetime Fox News program was largely devoted to coronavirus lies and propaganda. And he focused much of his screed on conspiracy theories related to the emerging vaccines. Carlson smugly disparaged anyone who had positive things to say about the vaccine and mocked people describing their experience getting vaccinated. He also made a point of overemphasizing any of the very few and minor reports of side effects, asserting that they were proof that the vaccine shouldn't be trusted. Nor should the doctors and experts who advocate for the vaccine that he says is being sold to an unwitting populace (see the videos here):
“So, how are the rest of us supposed to respond to a marketing campaign like this? Well, nervously. Even if you're strongly supportive of vaccines, and we are, even if you recognize how many millions of lives have been saved over the past 50 years by vaccines, and we do, it all seems a bit much. It feels false, because it is. It's too slick.”
Get it? Don't buy the sales pitch that is being directed at you by medical professionals and epidemiologists. They are all out to get you. And their purpose is nothing less than complete control of your bodies:
“In this country, we control our own bodies. They are always telling us that. But no. Suddenly, the rules have changed. On the question of the corona vaccine, our leaders definitely are not pro-choice. Their view is do as you are told and don’t complain. No uncomfortable questions. Those are not just suggestions, they are rules and Silicon Valley aims to enforce them. […] So whatever you do, don’t say this is social control because if you do, the richest and most powerful people in the world will act in perfect coordination to shut you down immediately.”
So it isn't just evil doctors. The plotters also include power hungry techies like Bill and Melinda Gates. Carlson is claiming that the vaccine's proponents are engaged in some sort of plot to enforce “social control,” and that any divergence from that plot will be dealt with harshly. He claimed that vaccine advocates are lying and threatening people to get them to comply. However, he never supplied a single example of any of those alleged lies and threats. Nor could he support his preposterous claims that people would be forced to take the vaccine.
Carlson went even further to malign the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci, whom he called “Lord Fauci” and complained that the media would not allow any criticism of the infectious disease expert. He said that Dr. Fauci was “ordering you around like an animal” so that “you wouldn't notice how incompetent” he is. He said that Dr. Fauci's “credibility has been significantly degraded.” This, Carlson said, is because Dr. Fauci warned people that gathering in groups during Thanksgiving would increase their potential for exposure to the coronavirus and result in a “surge superimposed on a surge.”
Carlson then claimed that no such surge has occurred. However, the actual data shows that the U.S. is currently experiencing higher rates of infections, hospitalizations, and deaths, than at any time since the virus first appeared. Carlson is flagrantly – and dangerously – lying. And they are the same lies that were recently told by his Fox News colleague, Laura Ingraham.
This would be a good time to note that Fox News lawyers have successfully argued in court that Carlson and other Fox crackpots could not be held liable for their lies because “no reasonable person” would take them seriously. The problem with that argument is that if Fox's viewers were reasonable, they wouldn't be watching Fox. Consequently, there should be real consequences for the harm done by Carlson and the others at Fox News who deliberately spread false and harmful disinformation. But at least Rupert will be okay in his Oxfordshire mansion while his media lackeys are getting tens of thousands of others killed.
