Is the Left Wising Up about the Politics of Lockdowns/Shutdowns?

by: Brent Smith

Well this is astounding. When the leftist media, as demonstrated by the Los Angeles Times, begins complaining about the continued Covid school lockdowns/shutdowns, it may be a sign of the apocalypse, or maybe the coming of the twelve Imam.

Or maybe some on the left are just awakening to the fact that the lockdowns and shutdowns are more are product of politics then of actually science.

Nah! I’ll go with the apocalypse narrative.

2020 Has Been a Banner Year for Liars, Cowards and Scoundrels

The year 2020 will likely go down in the annals of American history as indeed one of our worst – at least until 2021.

A lot of the anguish can be laid square at the feet of democrats – national, State and local. The interminable COVID lockdowns, shutdowns and ridiculous edicts by leftist Governors and Mayors have done immeasurable and in many cases permanent harm to businesses and families.

by: Brent Smith

38 major retailers and restaurant chains have either filed for bankruptcy or liquidated all together.

And then there’s the little guys.

As of August 31st, Yelp reported that the number had ballooned to 163,735.

The bottom line is that millions of “retail” employees just lost their jobs forever. read more

More Useless COVID Scares are Coming , but here are the Facts

by: Brent Smith

With lockdowns and shutdowns returning to our States – at least the States that even attempted to reopen, a vaccine may be our only way back. Moving the goalposts!

But wait. Not so fast thinking a vaccine will be the cure all – the sole way back to normalcy. According to the great Dr. Fauci, even if a vaccine is 90% effective, we should still wear masks and social distance.

In other words – move those goalposts to a completely unreachable, so that a return to normal pre-mask, pre-distancing life is unachievable. read more
