The “experts” at WHO are now against lockdowns

In April, I did a blog post entitled, “When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself.”

Many of us “non-experts” questioned the rationale for shutting down economies in order to “flatten the curve” of a virus.

Social media platforms silenced many who also questioned the rationale of lockdowns. Remember this?

During the past seven months, we’ve seen the consequences of lockdowns: Increase in suicides, economic devastation, increase in divorces, job losses, businesses closing, students falling behind in education, and so on.

There are several demorat-run states that STILL have some form of lockdowns in place (Washington, California, Illinois, New York, etc.). Wonder if they’ll change their tunes now that the “experts” at WHO are warning AGAINST lockdowns?

The NY Post reports that The World Health Organization has warned leaders against relying on COVID-19 lockdowns to tackle outbreaks — after previously saying countries should be careful how quickly they re-open.

Apparently these lockdowns should only be treated as a last resort.”

Too little, too late doctor!

More from the story:

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said.

“The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Nabarro said that there’s significant harm caused by tight restrictions, particularly on the global economy. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said.

He added that lockdowns have severely impacted countries that rely on tourism. “Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays,” Nabarro told the outlet.

“Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”

I wonder if the demorat governors will take the advice of this good doctor and fully re-open their states? I have a feeling that decision won’t be made until November 4.

Philadelphia progressives want to remove Columbus statue; city staff observing Columbus Day holiday

The City of Philadelphia’s Art Commission voted to remove the statue of Columbus at Marconi Plaza.

Last month a city judge granted an emergency motion filed on behalf of Friends of Marconi Plaza that prohibits the City of Philadelphia from removing the statue of Columbus while the group continues to pursue legal action.

The problem with the Christopher Columbus statue? From Mayor Jim Kenney (in June):

“Like many communities across the country, Philadelphia is in the midst of a much-needed reckoning about the legacy of systemic racism and oppression in this country and around the world. Part of that reckoning requires reexamining what historical figures deserve to be commemorated in our public spaces. In recent weeks, clashes between individuals who support the statue of Christopher Columbus in Marconi Plaza and those who are distressed by its existence have deteriorated—creating a concerning public safety situation that cannot be allowed to continue. We must find a way forward that allows Philadelphians to celebrate their heritage and culture while respecting the histories and circumstances of others that come from different backgrounds.”

I guess Columbus isn’t good enough to be commemorated in public space. But he’s sure good enough for a paid day off:

HYPOCRITES.

Washington State teacher kicks 10-year-old out of online class for admiring President Trump

I guess one good thing that has come from remote learning is parents can see what some teachers are ACTUALLY doing to their kids.

The Comey Bunch

Some heads need to roll for what these people did to President Trump. I’m not going to hold my breath that it will happen any time soon. Justice is an unfamiliar concept to those in the DC Swamp.

So guess we can try and have a little laugh about it…

President Trump appears to be recovering from Wuhan virus; libtards can’t deal

On Sunday night President Trump showed his love for supporters by taking a ride outside of Walter Reed to wave to those who had gathered at the hospital.

Doctors had given the OK to this drive-by:

Libtards, as usual, couldn’t deal with ANYTHING that President Trump does.

The immediate narrative was the President Trump endangered the lives of Secret Service agents who had to protect him on this irresponsible and wreckless joyride. A few examples:

A few thoughts on how President Trump is endangering the lives of Secret Services agents:

1. Presidential detail is inherently a risky job. You KNOW that when you apply for it. I’m guessing that even if the President had ebola someone would STILL be assigned to protect him.

2. Agents around President Trump that had been assigned to him during the past week may have already been exposed to Wuhan virus. Heck, some of them might have already tested positive and are asympomatic.

3. Agents with underlying health conditions (if any of them EVEN have any) may have been given the option to not ride with the president in front of Walter Reed.

4. Agents working on presidential detail are possibly taking theraputics.

Did President Trump endanger the lives of agents assigned to him by taking a “joyride?”

Most likely not given their younger age and the recovery rate of this virus. Yet we all know that the demorat narrative and TDS matters more than facts.

My guess is that demorats are so beside themselves because President Trump has survived. We all saw how much they wished him to die over the weekend. Because remember: #LoveTrumpsHate!

PS: Don’t believe for a MINUTE that the elite demorat media care ONE BIT about those Secret Service agents. (And isn’t it ironic that the same people who are promoting #DefundThePolice are suddently concerned about the Secret Service?)

True Story: When my boyfriend was in the sandbox (in 2013), he and another military member had to go outside the wire to retrieve a leather bag of disgraced reporter Dan Rather. Two of Rather’s lackeys also had to go outside the wire with them to the rendezvous point. Rather’s employees were not wearing protective gear (including helmets). Sad thing is the employees were more concerned about retreiving Rather’s expensive leather luggage than they were about their own safety.

Seems that Rather didn’t care one bit about impacting the family lives of his employees.

Typical, hypocritical demorat.

Hypocrite: Kamala Harris gets protection with weapons she wants to ban YOU from having

Kamala Harris has stated she wants to ban AR-15 style “assault weapons.”

Joe Biden’s web site states he will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons.

And because Kamala is a typical, hypocritical demorat, she’s entitled to protection by the weapons she wants to ban YOU from owning.

The Daily Mail reported that while Kamala was in Miami recently she was guarded by a Secret Service officer armed with an assault weapon – the same type of gun she vowed to ban. More:

“There was also a heavy police presence guarding the venue where Harris spoke, with at least two dozen officers protecting the Democrat who supports defunding the police and reallocating funds to community organizations and educational opportunities.

Harris has supported redistributing police funding, saying in June, ‘For far too long the status quo thinking has been to believe that by putting more police on the street you’re going to have more safety. And that’s just wrong, that’s not how it works.”

Read the whole story here.

Remember in November.

Why won’t she debate? Kim Foxx declines to debate challenger

I took a debate class in high school many moons ago. It was actually a great class where one learned many concepts that liberals despise: argument preparation, persuasive arguing (which later helped in my marketing/proposal writing career), logic and fact organization (with fact-based evidence), and communication, among others. I wonder if they even still teach debate in high school any more? You can certainly tell that ever since 2016, debate appears to be a lost art.

Cook County State Attorny Kim Foxx (demorat) also appears to not favor the art of debate anymore as she has chosen to avoid that event with her challenger, republican Pat O’Brien.

The reason Foxx won’t debate? MyFoxChicago says it’s because of Pat O’Brien using “Trump-like name calling and fear mongering” in recent editorial board interviews. Oh noes!

More from MyFoxChicago: “Foxx’s campaign released a statement, saying in part: “Ultimately, these Trump-like ‘win at all costs, even when the proof is in front of your face’ strategies are dangerous for our criminal justice system and our democracy.”

Read the whole story here.

Girl, please. If the proof is that strong, it should give you a major advantage at a debate.

What a coward.

Pray for President Trump: Both he and the First Lady have tested positive for the Wuhan Virus

Late last night it was reported that President Trump’s aide Hope Hicks tested postive for the Wuhan virus.

Less than two hours later President Trump tweeted that both he and First Lady Melania tested positive for the Wuhan virus and will begin the quarantine process.

The good news: Both President Trump and Melania have excellent health care advisors/doctors. They are in very good hands. And the recovery rate for this China virus is very high.

The bad news: Expect A LOT of VILE stories today from the demorats and their media.

And don’t expect the hashtag #LoveTrumpsHate to trend on Twitter AT ALL.

Saturday night President Trump gave us an update from Walter Reed:

Sunday update: GOOD NEWS! President Trump’s doctor says the president will probably be discharged tomorrow!
