Rick Bright, Whistleblower, Predicts Darkest Winter

Dr. Rick Bright, a media described whistleblower, testified before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Health subcommittee. According to Dr. Bright, we face the darkest winter in modern history if we don’t take drastic measures to stop the Coronavirus.

If the name Rick Bright doesn’t sound familiar to you, I wrote about him late last month and you can read it here. Bright was head of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority section of Health and Human Services. He believes he was “demoted” because he asked for vetting of Hydroxychloroquine. According to others in the department, the move had been in the works for months. Reading between the lines, he doesn’t seem like Dr. Bright worked well with others.

The House Committee on Energy and Commerce Health subcommittee is chaired by Democrat Anna Eshoo of California. Make what you will of that. You can scope out the other members of this subcommittee here. The title of this hearing is, “Hearing On Protecting Scientific Integrity In The COVID-19 Response”. They give the game away with that title, don’t they?

Predictably, the Democrats praised Rick Bright as the most courageous biped to ever walk the face of the Earth. A man dedicated to saving lives, no matter the cost to himself. Lather, rinse, repeat. Here from Rev.com is a portion of Dr. Bright’s opening statement:

Today, the world is confronting a public health emergency unlike any we’ve seen in over a century. We are facing a highly transmissible and deadly virus, which not only claims lives, but also disrupts the very foundations of our society. The American healthcare system is being taxed to the limit. Our economy is spiraling downward and our population is being paralyzed by fear stemming from a lack of a coordinated response and a dearth of accurate, clear communication about the path forward.

Americans yearn to get back, to work, to open their businesses and to provide for their families. I get that. However, what we do must be done carefully with guidance from the best scientific minds. Our window of opportunity is closing. If we fail to improve our response now based on science, I fear the pandemic will get worse and be prolonged. There will be likely a resurgence of COVID-19 this fall. It will be greatly compounded by the challenges of seasonal influenza. Without better planning, 2020 could be the darkest winter in modern history.

If you care to watch the whole opening statement,, here it is:

Oh my gravy, we didn’t listen to Dr. Bright and now we are all going to die. Well, his warning of the apocalyptic winter we face might have been scary two months ago. With truly courageous Governors of Florida and Georgia leading the way, we are getting back outside and getting much needed dental care (Thank you, Dr. White). Now, Dr. Bright just seems like a whiny, disgruntled employee getting petted by the old folks on the Democrat-led Health subcommittee.

Health & Human Services, Dr. Bright’s employer, issued the following statement:

“Mr. Bright has not yet shown up for work, but continues to collect his $285,010 salary, while using his taxpayer-funded medical leave to work with partisan attorneys who are politicizing the response to Covid-19,” an HHS spokesperson said in a statement.

Dr. Rick Bright claims he is taking sick leave because his blood pressure has shot up. Well, yes, I guess it has.

Watching the testimony today, Dr. Bright seemed to be enjoying his time in the spotlight. A little man finally being recognized. He will be forgotten next week.

One last thing, Dr. Bright is represented by Deborah Katz and Lisa Banks who represented Christine-Blasey Ford in her slurs against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

    .”… sick leave because his blood pressure has shot up.”

    Umm….. back in the middle of my working years there were periodic times of high stress. My blood pressure went up and I TOOK A D@##M PILL PRESCRIBED BY MY DOCTOR AND KEPT WORKING!!!!!

    And these Beltway Bandits wonder why we don’t trust them.

    If he isn’t working, then his pay should go to those who want to work and cannot.

    Dr. Bright’s opening statement
    Oh my word. That deserves a phrase-by-phrase fisking. It’s gonna be a long one. Here goes….

    the world is confronting a public health emergency unlike any we’ve seen in over a century
    Bullshit. We see it every year in flu season. Though, admittedly, most of our flu didn’t come from eating bats* or other odd creatures.

    We are facing a highly transmissible and deadly virus
    No, we are not. It is only “deadly” to certain highly vulnerable populations. Of course, “deadly” itself is an imprecise word, intended to evoke fear, rather than a precise term(s) which would actually inform you. Oh, and on top of everything else, its “deadliness” is comparable to the annual flu, once asymptomatic persons are brought into the numbers.
    Also, being “highly transmissible” is not an issue – unless it is also “deadly”.

    which not only claims lives
    Didn’t you just call it deadly? Oh, sorry, this is rhetorical setup for the next phrase…

    but also disrupts the very foundations of our society
    Uh, no, actually, the government is doing THAT. It’s not the virus’ fault that stupid people shut down the economy and hoarded toilet paper.

    The American healthcare system is being taxed to the limit.
    No. That’s flat out a lie. That right there should have him fired from his new job. Even NYC’s health system is currently under-utilized.

    Our economy is spiraling downward and our population is being paralyzed by fear stemming from a lack of a coordinated response and a dearth of accurate, clear communication about the path forward.
    Wow. No. The economy is hurt because of the stupidity of our tyrants. The fear is not from a lack of coordinated response but from the fear-mongering of Democrats, leftists like you, and the media (BIRM). BTW, most of us don’t need “clear communication about the path forward” – we know that simply opening everything back up is the way to go. We don’t have to be told when it’s bedtime and how to wash our hands by our mommy, the State.

    Americans yearn to get back, to work, to open their businesses and to provide for their families.
    So far the only true thing you’ve said.

    I get that.
    No, it’s obvious you don’t.

    what we do must be done carefully with guidance from the best scientific minds
    No. We don’t need the “experts” to run our lives. Sorry, you little tinpot technocrat dictator wannabe, but *two middle fingers up* no. Oh, go to hell, too.
    (How many times have you seen “best scientific minds” used in a dystopian work? Or ironically in other works? Yeah, me too.)

    Our window of opportunity is closing.
    Nope. I can see it, and it’s sitting there wide open. The only problem is the fat-ass bureaucrat sitting in it, blocking the view and the airflow. Get out of my window, doc, before I push you out.

    If we fail to improve our response now based on science
    That might be nice. But, instead, you keep insisting politics and technocrats who can’t even build a decent epidemiological model – you know, “experts” – should run things.

    I fear the pandemic will get worse and be prolonged
    Not likely. Though, if technocrats like you and WHO continue to define it as a pandemic in order to scare people, yes, it will be prolonged. Because it’s in the wild, now, and people have it, and therefore it will come around once in a while to get some people sick. (And, yes, that will happen all over the world, hence ‘pandemic’. *EYEROLL* )

    There will be likely a resurgence of COVID-19 this fall.
    You mean, like the flu? This is thoroughly irrelevant, as its recurrence only matters if it’s going to kill/damage lots of people (I define “lots” as “more than the flu, though it doesn’t have to be as many as the plague of the Dark Ages.”)

    It will be greatly compounded by the challenges of seasonal influenza.
    Which all you experts STILL can’t predict well enough to put out the right vaccine, nor one that is tremendously effective. (20%? Really?) When you can do that, I MIGHT listen to your prognostications about this virus. So, shut up and get back to work, a**hole.

    Without better planning, 2020 could be the darkest winter in modern history.
    Oh yes, because planning is exactly what we need. Should we, maybe, plan things out over the next five years, comrade? Maybe we could put the FDA in charge of crop predictions!

    Have we managed to kill the Cult of the Expert, yet? No? *smh*

    (BTW, shouldn’t we be using Ozzie Osbourne’s blood for a vaccine for this? He was way ahead of the curve.)
