Like the seamless transfer of Power, so shall there be a seamless transfer of crisis.
I recently had a rather enlightening discussion with a neighbor regarding Covid lockdowns and mask-ups.
She said, “If I have to wear a mask to keep others safe, I’ll do it. It’s a small price to pay.” I then asked how long she would be willing to do this. Her answer: “For as long as it takes. It’s not a big deal.”
She knows I disagree. She knows I don’t wear a mask, but thinks I do so out of some rebel-without-a-cause mentality.
I explained that she is looking at this issue more through a micro-lens, while I instead am just trying to see the big picture. read more

On Jan. 20, 2021, the WHO (World Health Organization) posted an important bulletin regarding polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19. What else happened on 20 January that was important? That’s right. It was the very same day Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. But I’m sure the WHO release was purely coincidental.
LifeSite News claims that the notice was released one hour after Biden took office. Although I can’t confirm that exact time, the WHO guidance bulletin is dated Jan. 20, 2021. read more

When will the freedom/liberty revolution begin?
Will there be another tea party movement?
If Biden does prevail, something will have to be done, and on multiple fronts. But for now, let’s just concentrate on the left’s favorite panic-demic, COVID-19, where the cure already has been and will continue to be exponentially worse than the virus.
The Biden/Harris office of the faux president-elect is already gearing up to lock the nation down and institute nationwide mask mandates, but still say they’re uncommitted. read more
Live report from HELL—Emperor Nero was surprised and a little angered to learn that all he had to do to stop Christians from gathering was to declare a pandemic.
The infamous, oppressive ruler of Rome wasted a lot of energy trying to stop Christians from worshiping Jesus when all along, churches would apparently have just shut down voluntarily if he’d just told them there was a virus with a 99.7% recovery rate going around. read more

Wisconsin state employees required to wear masks even when they’re home in virtual meetings
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has taken face mask requirements to a new level, mandating that employees wear the masks even if they’re at home on virtual meetings, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
This department rule is not backed up by any public health guidance, department officials openly admit that the purpose is to virtue signal that masks are important and the department takes them seriously. From the Journal Sentinel:
Natural Resources Secretary Preston Cole reminded employees in a July 31 email that Gov. Tony Evers’ mask order was going into effect the next day. That means every DNR employee must wear a mask while in a DNR facility, noted Cole, an appointee of the Democratic governor.
“Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff,” Cole told his employees. “Set the safety example which shows you as a DNR public service employee care about the safety and health of others.”

COVID-19 has a much higher death rate than that of the seasonal flu, the experts say. We mustn’t compare it to the flu. This has been the intonation almost since SARS-CoV-2 was discovered. It’s like comparing apples to oranges, blah, blah, blah.
In March, Dr. Anthony Fauci said COVID-19 is far deadlier than the flu. “The flu has a mortality of 0.1 percent, this has a mortality of 10 times that,” warned Fauci.
Early on we heard that the novel coronavirus mortality rate was catastrophic relative to that of the flu. “COVID-19, has caused more than 1.4 million illnesses and 85,000 deaths in the U.S. as of May 14, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.”
And it’s far worse today, we’re told, as we just recently surpassed the 100,000-deaths threshold.
The media dutifully parrot the death toll to an uneasy populace – constantly reminding us that we have a killer on our hands. Something must be done to stop the rampant spread of this pandemic. read more

Why the Left is Weaponizing Science
According to some “experts,” science can sometimes be settled, meaning that in certain areas of study, the evidence has been deemed so overwhelming and indisputable that further debate is not only unnecessary, it is forbidden. Only one interpretation of this evidence is possible. However, science is really nothing more than a tool, developed by humans for the purposes of studying our universe and the world on which we live. And scientists are human beings, which means they are prone to making mistakes. It would be just as silly to genuflect as a show of reverence to science as it would be for a carpenter to worship his hammer. It is helpful to remember that even the person who graduates from medical school at the very bottom of the class has still earned the right to be called “doctor.” read more

8 Valuable Lessons From China About How To Contain The Coronavirus
Freedom of expression and a free press are essential to everyone’s health and safety. That’s the most valuable lesson we should take away from the coronavirus epidemic.
The recent coronavirus outbreak, which sprouted within China in December, has now stagnated the world’s second-largest economy for more than a month. Since then, the virus has spread to more than 50 countries across six continents, all except Antarctica. The World Health Organization declared the virus a “global threat” and urged countries to prepare.
The medical journal JAMA published a paper last week, titled “Characteristics of and Important Lessons From the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak in China.” Its data was based on the 72,314 cases reported by Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Since China has the largest number of infected patients and death, this paper provides some valuable insights and lessons. read more
