A superb liar must have reminiscence. Richard Epstein has a foul reminiscence. Richard Epstein is a foul liar https://mobile.twitter.com/JohnPMacke/status/1251716101819584513.

On Mar 16 he forecast https://www.hoover.org/analysis/coronavirus-pandemic that the U.S. would see about 500 deaths from coronavirus.

He then on Mar 23 wrote https://www.hoover.org/analysis/coronavirus-overreaction that that 500 estimate was low, and that he now had a revised forecast of two,500.

Right now the March 16 article—nonetheless datestamped March 16—has been silently modified. Why? To make it seem that on Mar 16 he forecast not 500, and never 2500, however 5000 U.S. deaths.

Right now the Mar 16 article comprises a "Correction & Addendum as of March 24"—the datestamp Mar 24 of which is fake—that states that he had meant on Mar 16 to forecast 50,000 U.S. deaths: "my unique inaccurate estimate of 5,000 lifeless within the US is a quantity ten instances smaller than I meant to state…"

The Mar 24 datestamp is fake as a result of the "Correction & Addendum as of March 24" has itself been silently revised: the "Correction & Addendum as of March 24" initially learn: "That estimate is ten instances higher than the 500 quantity I erroneously put within the preliminary draft of the essay…

May this be funnier?

Confused? Epstein is now claiming that he initially meant on Mar 16 to forecast 50,000 U.S. lifeless however "erroneously" put 5,000 in his "preliminary draft".

  • In precise reality, his unique Mar 16 forecast was 500.

  • In precise reality, on Mar 23 Epstein said that his preliminary calculations had been in error, and that a greater forecast was "2000-2500".

  • In precise reality, on Mar 24, Epstein added his "Correction & Addendum" elevating his higher forecast to five,000, and acknowledging that that 5,000 forecast was a tenfold enhance over his preliminary 500 forecast.

  • In precise reality, someday between Mar 24 and immediately, Apr 21, Epstein silently revised his Mar 16 article—retaining the Mar 16 datestamp—in order that it falsely seems that its forecast was not 500 however 5000.

  • In precise reality, someday between Mar 24 and immediately, Apr 21, Epstein silently revised his Mar 24 "Correction & Addendum" to his Mar 16 article in order that it now falsely claims that his unique estimate was not 500 however 5000.

  • In precise reality, someday between Mar 24 and immediately, Apr 21, Epstein silently revised his Mar 24 "Correction & Addendum" to his Mar 16 article so as to add the—beforehand by no means made, and so I conclude completely false—declare that he on Mar 16 had "meant" to forecast 50,000 U.S. deaths from coronavirus.

I’m with Paul Campos right here: That is mental fraud, pure and easy.
