(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Former presidential candidate and Trump-era Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson, criticized the symbiotic relationship that has developed between the White House and the corporate media, especially in regard to their obvious collusion on matters of “public health,” according to an interview published by the Epoch Times.
“What we’ve done is we’ve gotten into a system where we have the media in cahoots with the executive branch, sort of overlooking all the other safeguards that we have in our system,” Carson said.
“If you have an executive branch that just begins to dictate, without any pushback, we’ve got to a very bad place,” Carson commented. “It’s too bad that a federal court system had to come in and bring some common sense into the discussion.”
“But the fact of the matter is, we all know, from multitudinous data, that the masks aren’t doing very much, particularly in things like airplanes that already have HEPA filters,” Carson continued.
Carson then attacked the Biden administration’s decision to rescind the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Title 42 rule, which allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to quickly deport illegal aliens during a “public health crisis.”
“There is no justification for getting rid of Title 42 on the one hand, and telling us we need to extend the mask mandates,” Carson said.
“We also had an FDA rule that said, we cannot issue an emergency use authorization for the vaccine if you have another effective therapy,” Carson told the Times. “Well, of course, you have to say those [therapeutics] aren’t effective so you can do it.”
