Illinois Gov. Pritzker orders police patrols amid Wuhan virus spikes

Gov. Pritzker

Illinois demorat Gov. J.B. Pritzker (you know, the one who acknowledged that his wife and family had gone to Florida amid the his stay-at-home orders) said that Illinois State Police will start patrolling bars and restaurants in regions of the state where Wuhan virus numbers are surging. Establishments that disregard his new restrictions could face sanctions including the loss of their liquor or gambling licenses.

From MyFoxChicago:

On another record-setting day for new COVID-19 infections, Pritzker announced the police patrols in four area of the state. The officers will be authorized to disperse crowds and issue citations for violators.

Pritzker previously downplayed enforcement while begging for compliance, but he said times have changed.

It is very serious right now, folks, and if we need to close down restaurants or bars or take away their liquor licenses, take away their gaming licenses, we will do that because we are now headed into a peak that is beyond, potentially, where we were in March and April,” Pritzker said during a visit to the St. Clair County Health Department in Belleville.

Earlier, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot had a similar message. Starting Friday, she ordered nonessential businesses to close by 10 p.m. and urged residents to limit gatherings to six people because of the troublesome rise in coronavirus cases. Bars that don’t serve food also have to stop serving customers indoors, and all restaurants and bars have to stop liquor sales at 9 p.m.”

Read the whole story here.

The MyFoxChicago article is short on statistics so I visited the Illinois Department of Public Health web site. Good luck finding and interpreting the statistics on that page. From their web site:

The state of Illinois has a population of just over 12.6 million.

According to the IL Dept. of Public Health web page, they have 360,159 confirmed cases during the pandemic. Not current cases. Cumulative.

You do the math.

They state the recovery rate from the Wuhan virus is 97%.

The IL Dept. of Public Health also lists the following statistic: ICU Beds: 1,329 Beds Available of 3,788. They don’t make it easy to find how many of those ICU beds are occupied due to Wuhan virus-related illnesses or just regular illnesses.

An interesting note I did find on the state public health page:

“On October 14, 2020 the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) began including both molecular and antigen tests in the reporting of the number of statewide total test performed in Illinois. Previously, due to the limited number of antigen tests and limited information about antigen test accuracy, antigen tests were not included in the total number (which comprised less than 1% of total tests performed). In August, the national case definition for a probable case changed and no longer required clinical symptoms to accompany a positive antigen test. An antigen tests alone is enough to be considered a probable case.

So now we are including a “probable” case in the Wuhan virus spike numbers? I call baloney on that.

Here in Oklahoma I’ve seen some fishy reporting on the Wuhan virus numbers. For example:

It was reported that the Oklahoma Departmet of Corrections has had 20 death due to the Wuhan virus. At least that’s what the headline said. Yet if you read the article it states,”To date, 20 inmate deaths are possibly or confirmed to be connected to coronavirus. Medical exams have confirmed four of the 20 deaths were caused, at least, in-part of COVID-19. The other 16 are under investigation.

In my small town the director of one of our two hospitals recently said at a city council meeting that the hospital had suspended ambulance service due to EMTs being in quarantine due to Wuhan virus. They were forced to use a private ambulance company for ambulance service.

As I was driving to work the day after he made that claim before the city council guess what I pulled over for? An ambulance from that hospital that was driving by with sirens blaring.

When the bureaucrats and media include the words “probable,” “connected,” “under investigation,” and then make statements that directly contradict what I see in action (a hospital ambulance in service), guarantee you I won’t believe that what they say “is very serious right now.”

De Blasio’s NYC: Cafe receives summons for having their doors open!

New York City STILL has major restrictions in place for its residents. Some restaurants can only do takeout orders.

Leaving their front door open is a big NO NO.

I don’t know how any NYC business can survive this madness.

UPDATE: Last night I saw that this was a Jewish restaurant that is part of de Blasio’s “nonsensical and tyrannical policies specifically targeting the Jewish community.”

There’s a GoFundMe set up for the restaurant and here’s the message on the donation site: “We are taking your donations and splitting them between several restaurants to create a tab for volunteer ambulance drivers (members of Hatzolah) so that they can stop and get themselves meals between calls.”

Four newborns in Adelaide, Australia died after being denied lifesaving heart surgery

Australia has a population of 25,000,000 people.

They have had just under 28,000 confirmed cases of Wuhan virus with less than 1,000 deaths.

You do the math.

Apparently these numbers are so frightening that bureaucrats there have decided that travel restrictions are in order for even the most vulnerable population who need life-saving measures.

More details here:

What a way to “save lives” from the Wuhan virus, Australia.

California Dept. of Public Health issues guidelines for private gatherings

California health bureaucrats missed the memo from WHO regarding lockdowns.

They are still in some form of lockdowns with restrictions in place in California. And since their citizens don’t know any better, the bureaucrats have issued guidelines for how you conduct your PRIVATE gatherings.

Their guidelines apply to private gatherings, and all other gatherings not covered by existing sector guidance are prohibited. Gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. From their web site:

All persons planning to host or participate in a private gathering, as defined above, must comply with the following requirements. Local health jurisdictions may be more restrictive than this guidance.

Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited.

Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized.

For any gatherings permitted under this guidance, the space must be large enough so that everyone at a gathering can maintain at least a 6-foot physical distance from others (not including their own household) at all times.

Seating must provide at least 6 feet of distance (in all directions—front-to-back and side-to-side) between different households.

When gathering, face coverings must be worn in accordance with the CDPH Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings (PDF), unless an exemption is applicable.

People at gatherings may remove their face coverings briefly to eat or drink as long as they stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they are done with the activity.

Gatherings should be two hours or less.

Read all their guidelines here.

There’s a way to get around all these guidelines, though. Just call your event a “peaceful protest.”

Better yet, just wait until November 4 to hold a private gathering as restrictions may be lifted after the election.

President Trump back in form at first rally since Wuhan virus diagnosis

Last night President Trump did his first rally after recovering from the Wuhan virus. He looks very good!

And unlike Biden, the president had a lot of real people (not the media) out supporting him! Take a look:

Watch the rally below.

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.

The Commons Project: Tracking your Wuhan virus status through technology

I came upon a comment on a blog that spoke about the “The Commons Project” and how they are developing technology in which “citizens will be controlled by tracking and tracing through apps funded by the Rockefeller and Clinton Foundations.”

So I decided to take a look at The Commons Project. Here’s what I found:

The Commons Project states on their web page:

Ah, the “common good.”

There’s your first red flag.

The Commons Project was established with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.

There’s your second red flag.

(FYI: I found nothing about the Clinton Foundation on The Commons Project web site. Nor could I find any related connections through a simple web search. But that doesn’t necessarily prove the Clinton Foundation isn’t involved in these technology/health tracking applications. We all know how good the Clintons are at hiding information.)

One of the trustees of The Commons Project is Julie Gerberding, MD . Julie is the former director of the CDC (with the CDC from 1998 through 2009). Since 2009 she has served as president of Merck’s vaccines division.

Julie Gerberding, MD: Working for Merck

There’s your third red flag.

Let’s take a look at the projects this organization is developing, shall we?

CommonHealth
CommonHealth helps people collect and manage their personal health data and share it with the health services, organizations and apps they trust.

(The apps you trust with your personal data? That’d be a BIG FAT ZERO for me.)

COVIDcheck
COVIDcheck helps people around the world understand and reduce their COVID-19 risks. Developed in collaboration with CDC and the World Medical Association, it also supports schools, universities, employers, and public health agencies in their efforts to overcome the pandemic and return to a new normal.

CommonPass
For global travel and trade to return to pre-pandemic levels, travelers will need a secure and verifiable way to document their health status as they travel and cross borders. Countries will need to be able to trust that a traveller’s record of a COVID PCR test or vaccination administered in another country is valid. Countries will also need the flexibility to update their health screening entry requirements as the pandemic evolves and science progresses. Airlines, airports and other travel industry stakeholders will need the same.

The Commons Project together with The World Economic Forum is working to initiate the CommonPass framework to address those challenges.

So The Commons Project is promoting the sharing of our health data via apps and our risk for the Wuhan virus with employers? Also, we are to now report our Wuhan virus test results or provide proof of vaccination before traveling?

So for the “common good” we are to report and share our private health data in order to freely move about our cities, states and the world?

Way too many red flags for me. Sounds like another system I want no part of.
