Discussion on Covid CYA

Timothy Birdnow

My post on CYA over Kung Flu precipitated a nice discussion and I'm going to reproduce it here.

Bill H. said:

No, actually the problem is the rush to publish, otherwise known as publicity seeking, otherwise known as talking when you don't know what you're talking about because you love seeing your name in print.

These "scientists" go shooting their mouths off before they actually study the subject because they want to be the first ones to be quoted on the subject, because they want to be the first and smartest in the public eye. Then when facts come out, instead of admitting that they were full of shit, that they didn't know what they were talking about, they tell us that "new facts have emerged."

They are liars. The "new facts" that emerged were not "new facts,""facts."
they were just Liars and idiots.

Dana Mathewson replied:

Don't trust 'em much, do you, Bill? Wonder why? For the same reasons I don't, probably. In today's 24-hour news cycle, plus the scientific community's "publish or perish" dictum, ya gotta get something in front of the public or they'll forget who you are. So you say something, anything, BS or not. And man, it's easy to manufacture BS these days!


The second of the three key points was interesting: "But changing your mind based on new evidence is a badge of honor in the scientific community." I'm not certain that means what the MSM thinks it does, but they'll push the hell out of it. Given the percentage of dolts who believe the MSM, when "scientists" reverse themselves, it's "Wow, look, they've got a new slant, it must be true." Yes, if a true scientist finds new evidence that proves he was wrong, he's happy and is glad to publicize it. Is that really what's happening here, considering most of these "scientists" are political hacks? And it usually takes years for this kind of thing to happen, not four or five weeks. I'm suspicious.


Kinda makes it hard to know who to believe these days, but as far as I'm concerned, pay attention to what makes sense and ignore the rest. Especially the conspiracy freaks, like the old friend of mine who insisted that G.H.W. Bush was a Nazi.

And my 2P:

Agreed guys!

Dana, you say:

"Kinda makes it hard to know who to believe these days, but as far as I'm concerned, pay attention to what makes sense and ignore the rest. Especially the conspiracy freaks, like the old friend of mine who insisted that G.H.W. Bush was a Nazi."

That is a great point. What happens so often these days is that conspiracy theories flourish and they hide the activities being done in plain sight by the Left. I'm pretty sure the Progressives fund people to crank these crazy theories out just to muddy the waters. How much Soros money goes to doing that? Soros doesn't conspire; he acts pretty much in plain sight. The key is to hide it behind a blanket of conspiracy theories so when you say "George Soros funded the Ferguson riots" for instance, a sizable group will call you a conspiracy nut, like the guys who think old man Bush was a Nazi. And the majority of a-politcal types will then think you are a nut - even though Soros himself may admit he spent money on such things.

De Blasio warns of New York City's multibillion-dollar deficit amid coronavirus, pleads for aid

Dana Mathewson

I'm not surprised at this and I'll bet you're not. De Blahblah is following in the footsteps of Governor Andrew Cuomo: bleed your constituency dry, blame somebody else and go hat in hand to somebody else asking for, or more likely demanding, a hand-out.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday warned that the city faces a multibillion-dollar deficit amid the coronavirus pandemic, while pleading for federal and state assistance.

New York City previously estimated $7.4 billion in lost revenue due to the coronavirus crisis, but on Wednesday, de Blasio warned that the city is projecting a shortfall of nearly $9 billion— possibly more—over the next two fiscal years.

"We are now $9 billion in the hole between the current fiscal year and the one that begins July 1,” de Blasio said.

"We have lost billions upon billions of dollars of revenue that we use to serve our people,” de Blasio explained. "It’s gone. It’s not coming back.”

He added: "The only way to possibly keep this city functioning and keep the services provided, keep people on our payroll, is if we get a really substantial stimulus program from Washington.”

De Blasio noted that "we don’t know when that’s going to be right now. They have not scheduled to vote in the Senate. We don’t know what it’s going to look like. And meanwhile, we have a budget due on June 30 by law.”

"This week I asked the state of New York for help. I asked the state of New York to give us a fallback, give us a safety net,” de Blasio said. "It’s something we need as a last resort if our federal government isn’t there for us, if we’re going to maintain basic services here in the city.”

Twitter Censor is Partisan Hack

Timothy Birdnow

No surprise. I do think his graphic description of McConnell is pretty accurate...

Twitter exec in charge of effort to fact-check Trump has history of anti-Trump posts, called McConnell a 'bag of farts'

A few leftist companies run by ex-hippies have taken complete control of the internet and censor it with abandon. If the tables had been turned the government would have employed anti-trust laws long ago. But they didn't with these big tech companies (like Google or Twitter or Facebook) who have purchased all of their competitors and now sit securely in absolute power. That must change.

But McConnell pretty much IS a fart bag...

CYA on Coronavirus Reporting

Timothy Birdnow

This is classic media; report only one side of a story, raise it to fever pitch, then as quietly as possible admit there was another side to it (so as to maintain plausible deniability). Scientists have disagreed with this from the beginning. But the media acted as if all were onboard with the radical steps taken. Now they are covering their tails. I doubt it will make a difference at this point in terms of public perception or quieting the anger in the general public - which is why they are doing this now.

Most people will believe what they first heard. The damnable media know that.

WH Press Secretary Attacked by Media, RINO Press

This from James Doogue:

'It is the responsibility of the press to dig up the truth and report it. They are guilty of pushing a debunked hoax, and instead of learning from their foolishness, they are covering it up, continuing not to ask any relevant questions, and instead pointing a finger at anyone who would dare to expose them for their gross lack of journalistic ethics.'

There Is No Journalistic Defense For Not Answering Kayleigh McEnany’s Questions

New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.

This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

After a contentious exchange about President Donald Trump’s call for governors to allow churches to reopen, one reporter asked McEnany whether Trump has considered pardoning former President Barack Obama for illegal wiretapping, spying, and other potential crimes. McEnany said she had spoken to the president about the Flynn matter but not that particular question. Then things got interesting.

"Who I did speak to about President Obama and unmasking Michael Flynn were the men and women in this room,” McEnany said. "I laid out a series of questions any good journalist would want to answer about why people were unmasked and all sorts of questions, and I just wanted to follow up with you guys on that. Did anyone take it upon themselves to pose any questions about Michael Flynn and unmasking to President Obama’s spokesperson?”

Crickets.

"Oh, not a single journalist has posed that question,” McEnany doubled down.

She proceeded to raise a series of question — on Powerpoint slides because "maybe we’re visual learners and you guys will follow up with journalistic curiosity” — the press should be hammering, given the magnitude of the Russia hoax story and damning new developments regarding Flynn and the Obama White House.

Germany Threatens to Imprison Anti-Scoldilocks

Timothy Birdnow

Under cover of Cornyvirus (as my father calls it) darkness the Fourth Reich of Fuhrer Frau Merkel has suspended freedom of speech over climate.

Paul Homewood discusses the impending imprisonment of anti-Scoldilocks, nineteen year old Naomi Seibt. Seibt may go to prison for "unlawful product placement" and being "unclimate-friendly".

I kid you not.

From Lord Monckton courtesy of Not a Lot of People Know That:

To all the kind and generous readers who have donated to the appeal for Naomi Seibt, I should like to say how very grateful she for your support. Thanks to your contributions to her Patreon account, she now has $1600 a month in income, and skeptics everywhere are spreading the word. Stefan Molyneux, who has interviewed Naomi in the past, has just retweeted it. Latest news is that Naomi has been threatened with imprisonment.

Naomi, who will be writing a personal thank-you as soon as she has time, will be devoting your donations to continuing her gallant fight not only for freedom of speech about the climate question but also for freedom from jail.

It is not just about the money, life-saving though it is. She felt very much alone when she realized that the power, the might and the wealth of the State were – for purely political reasons – being aimed directly at her. The warmth of your support has been a very great comfort to her at this difficult time.

She was not happy to receive a letter from the State Media Authority in North Rhine Westphalia, where she lives, telling her that three of her YouTube videos on the climate question were against the law because she had expressed views that were not, in the Authority’s opinion, "climate-friendly”, and because she had mentioned the Heartland Institute in those videos.

Such non-"climate-friendly” mentions of Heartland, the letter said, constituted unlawful product placement.

At the time when that first letter arrived, Naomi was not well. A letter went to the Authority on her behalf, asking for more time so that she could respond properly in due course. The Authority did not give her more time. It went right ahead and issued an "administrative act”, a quasi-judicial decision against her. The act gave her just three choices:

  1. Take down two of the three videos the Authority had originally complained of; or

  2. Pay the Authority 1000 euros plus 200 euros costs for each of the two videos (total $2640 at today’s exchange rate); or

  3. Go to prison for up to 14 days in respect of each video: total up to 28 days.

Naomi made the first of the three videos five months before she even knew the Heartland Institute existed. Unsurprisingly, therefore, that video – video 1 – did not mention Heartland at all. The Authority has now backed off and accepted that video 1 could not by any stretch of the most insanely malevolent bureaucratic imagination constitute product placement for the Heartland Institute. That leaves videos 2 and 3.

In video 2, just a couple of minutes long, Naomi announced to her 88,000 YouTube followers that she was now a member of the Heartland Institute, and said that she would be working with it to take a rational and non-alarmist approach to the climate question. All she was doing was telling the truth. But in her homeland it seems it is now again unlawful to tell the truth if the State does not like the truth. That should worry all of us.

In law, that mention of Heartland does not constitute unlawful product placement because Naomi stated her connection with Heartland explicitly, right at the beginning of video 2. For that was the whole point of the video: to tell her followers, openly and honestly, that she was now with the Institute. In civilized jurisdictions, for good reason, it is only undeclared product placement that is unlawful.

In any event, the Authority says such mentions are only illegal if in the same video one advocates policy prescriptions. But the 280 words of video 2 contain no policy recommendations at all.

Video 3 did not mention Heartland even once. It was a video of a speech Naomi had given to a German audience. The event had been arranged long before I had introduced her to the Heartland Institute. Heartland had absolutely nothing to do with it, and it had absolutely nothing to do with Heartland. It beats me how anyone could imagine for a single instant that video 3 could possibly constitute product placement.

Yet the Authority – inferentially anxious to find fault with more than just one short and harmless video – persists in pursuing Naomi for video 3 as well as for video 2, even though I have written to it twice directly and once via the German Ambassador in London to warn it to cease and desist’

On the facts, no reasonable, independent and impartial public authority exercising a quasi-judicial function could possibly regard any of videos 1-3 as constituting unlawful product placement.

Remarkably, the Authority manifests its prejudice in this affair by using the words "climate-friendly” to describe its own viewpoint on the climate question, not only in its initial letter but also, far more seriously and far more culpably, in its quasi-judicial administrative act…….

Monckton goes on to demolish the legal aspects of the State’s case, before concluding:

The Authority is wrong in fact, for it is manifest that neither of the two videos it complains of constitutes unlawful product placement. And it is wrong in law, for it has acted contrary to natural justice by judging itself, by expressing open prejudice in the judgment and by failing to allow Naomi time to respond substantively before it judged her.

Its crude attempt at silencing the freedom of thought, of conscience, of expression and of association of a 19-year-old YouTuber against whom it has chosen to discriminate on the stated ground that she is not, in its words, "climate-friendly” is now justifiably attracting worldwide condemnation.

As a result of the appeal, Naomi not only has enough money to keep body and soul together, but individual donors have come forward so that she can engage a senior administrative lawyer to fight her corner in the Verwaltungsgericht (the State administrative court).

Even the Left-leaning media hacks who had previously given Naomi a hard time for daring to question the climate-Communist Party Line are now increasingly on her side. They are shocked at the Authority’s heavy-handedness.

The Authority, now visibly desperate, has issued an imprudent and mendacious press statement falsely stating that it had given Naomi a fair chance to put her side of the case. The courts will not like that.

An appeal against the Authority’s kangaroo-court misconduct has been lodged. In due course a proper judge will hear not only the Authority’s side of the case but Naomi’s as well – the case that the Authority scandalously refused to hear before it issued its quasi-judicial administrative act.

One question the judge will be asked to rule upon is whether the Authority must answer Naomi’s request to be told which of its "climate-friendly” fellow-believers told it about her videos.

On her behalf, a copy of an email from a third party to the Authority about Naomi’s videos was requested and provided, but the Authority redacted the name of the sender without having declared the redaction. That failure to declare that a document furnished in court proceedings had been altered from its original state is a serious breach of process. The Authority has thus put itself in contempt of court. The offense is imprisonable.

The question arises whether the Authority and its "climate-friendly” clerks, in demanding money from Naomi with menaces even though it knows perfectly well – for it has been plainly, fairly and repeatedly told – that it has no legitimate grounds whatsoever to make those demands, has committed the serious, imprisonable criminal offences of blackmail, fraud and misfeasance in a public office.

I shall be referring the case papers to the German Ambassador with a formal complaint to be forwarded to the police and investigating authorities in Münster, where Naomi lives, and in Berlin.

The international news media are already planning to be present in the Verwaltungsgericht. This will be a battle royal for freedom of speech against the over-mighty State. Thanks to your generosity, the State will crash and burn, and freedom of speech will win. It will not be Naomi that goes to jail. Thank you all again. Let freedom ring!

So now you can go to prison for bucking the will of the Reich.

Gates Foundation Funding Media

Timothy Birdnow

Follow the money, folks!

From Richard Cronin:

The money flows from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation --- into media no less than others:

"....grants to media organizations such as ABC and The Guardian, one of Britain’s leading newspapers, raise obvious conflict-of-int erest questions: How can reporting be unbiased when a major player holds the purse strings?"

"To garner attention for the issues it cares about, the foundation has invested millions in training programs for journalists. It funds research on the most effective ways to craft media messages. Gates-backed think tanks turn out media fact sheets and newspaper opinion pieces. Magazines and scientific journals get Gates money to publish research and articles. Experts coached in Gates-funded programs write columns that appear in media outlets from The New York Times to The Huffington Post, while digital portals blur the line between journalism and spin."

Homosexual Harassment in Hollywood

Timothy Birdnow

I went to high school with the late George Hickenlooper. Hickenlooper - brother to the former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper - was a very talented filmmaker. He came from a solidly Democratic, liberal family. George went to Hollywood to make it in the film business and wound up being a kind of cult filmmaker. He never did hit it big - because he refused the sexual advances of a male producer. He tells his story in his opus, The Low Life. In it George has a scene where a producer asks to "meet with him" in a bedroom during a party. As soon as the door was closed the man said "get to work" and when George refused, well, that was the end of his promising career. He was blacklisted by this man.

So it's no surprise to me there is homosexual harassment in Hollywood.

(BTW, this so soured Hickenlooper on the hypocrisy of liberalism and the Democrats that he renounced them both and became, well, not exactly a right winger but he trended Republican the rest of his life. He died in 2010.

The point is, gay sexual harassment has been happening all along, and especially in Hollywood, where so many homosexuals hold positions of power. But the media and the Left desperately try to hide that fact.

So this should surprise no-one. Anyone remember Kevin Spacey?

A California state employment department is suing Disney and CBS for years of alleged sexual harassment of men on the set of now canceled police drama seriesCriminal Minds.

Complaints about the alleged behavior of cinematographer Greg St. Johns are well known both in and out of the industry. Indeed, St. Johns was fired from the show in 2018 over his alleged behavior on set. But now a lawsuit has been filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing allegingthat for years the series producers and the network turned a blind eye to the alleged harassment before finally taking action against St. Johns.

"On a frequent and regular basis, St. Johns touched numerous men on the testicles, anus, butt cheeks, breasts, and kissed or caressed their necks, shoulders, and ears, among other actions. St. Johns doted on certain men and treated them more favorably, provided they acquiesced to his attention. To those who resisted, he retaliated in common patterns, including the silent treatment, social ostracism, unfair criticism, public shaming, and ultimately termination,” the filing says in part.

End

Here is an interesting fact about the underreporting of homosexual rape and molestation.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4062022/

"Not only does the traditional sexual victimization paradigm masks male victimization, it can obscure sexual abuse perpetrated by women as well as same-sex victimization. We offer a few counterparadigmatic examples. One multiyear analysis of the NCVS household survey found that 46% of male victims reported a female perpetrator.23 Of juveniles reporting staff sexual misconduct, 89% were boys reporting abuse by female staff.33In lifetime reports of nonrape sexual victimization, the NISVS found that 79% of self-reported gay male victims identified same-sex perpetrators.34

Despite such complexities, as recently as 2012, the National Incident Based Reporting System (a component of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program [UCR]) included male rape victims but still maintained that for victimization to be categorized as rape, at least 1 of the perpetrators had to be of the opposite sex.35Conversely, under the NISVS definitions, for a female to fall into the "made to penetrate” category, the perpetrating receptive partner must also be female.5("Made to penetrate” includes anal penetration by a finger or other object, and a female could therefore be made to penetrate a male.) Additional research and analysis concerning female perpetration and same-sex abuse is warranted but is beyond the scope of this article. For now we simply highlight the concern that reliance on the male perpetrator and female victim paradigm limits understandings, not only of male victimization but of all counterparadigmatic abuse.

And most male on male rape victims are loathe to report it for a variety of reasons discussed in the paper cited above.

Homosexual rape is real and probably a lot more prevalent then many people think. And I rather suspect Hollywood is loaded with gay rapists.

Shoot, they've been sodomizing the body politic of America for decades!

Just Not That Contagious

Bill H.

In reply to the post about mask wearing not being sound science.

The main reason for not wearing a mask is that the virus is just not all that contagious. If it were we would get data like, "we tested 1000 people at random and 80% tested positive." But we do not have even one piece of data that comes within hand grenade distance of that.

Diamond Princess: 3700 people living in very close quarters. 100% tested, 20% tested positive. Additionally, a high number of those testing positive shared a cabin with a person testing negative.

USS Theodore Rooseveldt: 5000 sailors, living in very close quarters. 20% tested positive.

Every civic location (including Italy which was reported as a horror story) which has reported the results of general testing has reported 5% infection rate, with the exception of NYC which reports a bit above 10% rate. Compare that to the normal seasonal flu which always infects 10% or more.

They cannot claim that the low infection rate is due to measures of mask wearing and "social distancing." The first death from this virus in California was in Dec 2019. The number in the name of the disease is for the year it appearred, 2019. I caught the disease in January. The lockdown started in California on March 19, 2020, so the diease was spreading for 3.5 months or more and infected less than 5% of the population.


The statements of "health officials" and politicians that "this is a highly contagious virus" are simply not true.

Memorial Day Rebellion

Timothy Birdnow

People are at an end with this viral idiocy.
From KSDK News:

Viral photos show people partying and ignoring social distancing guidelines at the Lake of the Ozarks, but the sheriff says revelers broke no laws.

A LOT of people went to the Lake of the Ozarks, and authorities are ready to spit nickels.

They are trying to get these people to "self quarantine" for 14 days.

But it's well past time we stop hiding under our beds. We won't end this until we actually let it run it's course. The longer we try to hide form it the worse it will be.

I'm proud of these people for rebelling against the soft tyranny of the medical nannies and do-gooder bureaucrats.

Owens, Hitler, and the Democrats

Timothy Birdnow

On Facebook Cornelius Carroll discusses Jesse Owens and the roots of Nazism:

Hitler adopted his eugenics laws from Progressive eugenics laws that were based on Social Darwinism. He also modeled laws after the Jim Crow laws passed by Democrat politicians. History is complicated and rarely simple to understand. The rule of thumb is that all forms of Socialism are dangerous and destructive to human life and liberty.

From Michael Barnett:
President Donald Trump should honor Jesse Owens as the greatest Olympian of America
After the 1936 Berlin Olympics, only the white athletes were invited to see and meet the Democrat, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. No such invitation was made to the African American athletes such as Jesse Owens, who had won four gold medals.

A widely believed myth about the 1936 games was that Hitler had snubbed Owens, something that never happened.


In August 1936 Jesse Owens became an Olympic immortal by winning four golds at the Berlin Games. Four months later he had been banned from athletics in the united states by the Democratic Party who control the white house and congress and reduced Jesse Owens to only racing against horses.
it was the racist Democratic Party and not Hitler and Nazi Germany who reject the black Olympians

A WORD FROM TIM:

Hitler didn't snub Owens but Roosevelt did. According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica:

 "Owens won his first gold medal in the 100-meter dash. Hitler did not meet or shake hands with Owens. That said, there are several reports of a salute or wave. According to sports reporter and author Paul Gallico, writing from Berlin, Owens was "led below the honor box, where he smiled and bowed, and Herr Hitler gave him a friendly little Nazi salute, the sitting down one with the arm bent.” Owens himself later confirmed this, claiming that they exchanged congratulatory waves.

So, Owens was not personally snubbed by Hitler. However, Owens did feel that he had been snubbed by someone: U.S. Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt. A month after the Olympic Games, Owens told a crowd, "Hitler didn’t snub me—it was [Roosevelt] who snubbed me. The president didn’t even send me a telegram.”

Roosevelt never publicly acknowledged Owens’s triumphs—or the triumphs of any of the 18 African Americans who competed at the Berlin Olympics. Only white Olympians were invited to the White House in 1936. A number of explanations have been offered for the president’s actions.

Most likely, Roosevelt did not want to risk losing the support of Southern Democrats by appearing overly soft on the race issue. The black Olympians who competed in Berlin were not recognized by the White House until 2016, when Pres. Barack Obama invited the athletes’ relatives to an event in celebration of their lives and accomplishments
."

Mussolini was a huge admirer of Woodrow Wilson and he says he modeled Fascism on Wilson's Administration.
Wilson was clearly a man of the Left.

Fascism/Nazism were the outgrowth of non-Marxist socialism that was rooted in social Darwinism. Attempts to claim they are "right wing" is a bald-faced lie, one that the media and academia has successfully propagated.

But Mussolini was the editor of the Socialist newspaper in Italy prior to establishing the Fascist party, and HE always saw himself as a socialist, albeit one who had added an extra dimension to the disease.

And of course the Nazis official name was National Socialist German Workers Party. Both were solidly socialist, with government control of almost all economic activity, with government involvement in almost every facet of life, including culture and religion. The only "conservative" thing about the Fascists and Nazis was they didn't nationalize industries, preferring to simply exercise control while the "owners" were relegated to managerial positions for the party (kind of like China today).

In fact, the Bolsheviks in Germany were supportive of Nazism early on, with a slogan "first Brown then Red". They saw it as a step between Capitalism and Communism.

Cuomo Admits Screwing Up

Nothing is ever said, even though it's fairly obvious that the Democrats don't want to enforce the law in their communities. Are they not to blame? But somehow they are excused. It may be incompetence or malice, but in the end it happened on their watch. This is more of the same.

Medical Care Death Rates from Coronavirus Fifty Times Others

This from Joe Bastardi

Chew on this: Fact #1: 1.7% of the population in the US resides in long-term medical care facilities (LTMCFs) and total 5.7 million.

Fact #2: The residents of LTMCFs accounted for 38,800 or 53% of all COVID-19 deaths (based on recent data). The rest of the country, the 98.3%, have experienced approximately 34,600 deaths, or 47% of the nation’s total COVID-19 deaths.

The Death Rate at LTMCFs Is Stunning
That means the death rate, deaths expressed as a percent of those living in medical care institutions, is 0.682%, more than 50 times the death rate of the rest of the population at 0.012%. The death rate for the overall population is 0.022%.

From Tyler Durden writer at zero hedge Please note he is using CDC data, As that rises, the other numbers should rise in tandem and the Nursing home % may increase.

The fake news is covering for Melinda Gates after she performed a media appearance wearing jewelry that contained an image of a satanic inverted cross.

Gates appeared on NBC’s Today Show recently to criticize President Donald Trump over his coronavirus response wearing the symbol of satanism.

This enraged people on social media who called out the wife of technocratic overlord Bill Gates for her vile display:

So how did the left wing Snopes handle it?

Despite the fact that she can clearly be seen wearing the inverted cross, they rated the claim "mostly false” based on a grainy photo of Gates they used.

"Based on our examination of the videos in question, Melinda Gates did wear a necklace with a pendant in the shape of a cross in interviews,” they wrote.

"Due to the low resolution of the video footage and lack of explanation from Gates herself, it cannot be proven whether the cross had four equal arms or one longer arm. If the latter is true, also unknown is whether the cross was intentionally, or unintentionally, flipped upside down,” they added.

So they rate it "mostly false" by using a poor quality image. Cute trick.

Bill and Melinda Gates have championed all manner of bad things, from abortion to euthanasia to injecting microchips into people so as to know exactly who they are and what they are doing (aka the Mark of the Beast). I don't know if his wife is a devil worshiper but this certainly suggests she may be.
