Poll confirms damage caused by lockdowns

While politicians are turning back to lockdowns as the second wave of COVID hits, more studies are coming out suggesting that this lockdown cure is worse than the disease it is supposed to be fighting. The latest involves a survey conducted by GoHealth that revealed the negative impact lockdowns are having on seniors. Study Finds reports: NEW YORK — Isolation can be difficult for everyone. For seniors, especially those living alone, the coronavirus pandemic can cut them off from the vital help they need daily. A new survey finds social distancing is also taking a toll on the mental health of many older Americans. The study of 1,000 Medicare recipients finds one in four feel their mental health, physical health, or both has declined under COVID restrictions. Of this group, the most common symptoms of mental health decline includes anxiety, depression, and irritability. More specifically, an alarming 85% of seniors are battling more anxiety these days. Similarly, 78% have felt depressed, while 76% are more irritable since the start of the pandemic. READ: Solitary confinement: 4 in 5 seniors have felt more anxious, depressed during pandemic …

WHO divided over lockdowns

This was a bit of a shock, but it appears there is a bit of disagreement going on at the World Health Organization (WHO) about the benefits of lockdowns. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s boss, has come out strongly supportive of lockdowns (and Communist China), however, another member of WHO has just publicly condemned the lockdowns stating that all they are achieving is poverty. Breitbart explains: The UK’s envoy to the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) has condemned mass coronavirus lockdowns, slamming the “ghastly global catastrophe” caused by crashing the world economy. Dr. David Nabarro from the W.H.O. appealed to world leaders on Saturday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus. He claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved. READ: Backflip: W.H.O. Condemns Coronavirus Lockdowns, Just ‘Doubling’ Global Poverty Of course, this is not the first time that I have reported on the growing disagreements among health care professions on the health benefits of lockdowns, that have turned political.

Does the Devil exist, really?

Atheists don’t believe in the existence of God, and they might laugh at believers who have an ‘imaginary friend in the sky.’ If people don’t believe in God, we don’t even need to ask, they don’t believe in any other beings from the Bible. I find that most Atheist arguments are with Christians, but it is fair to say that other religions also believe in evil beings who cause destruction among us, and that includes Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others. Most religious people believe there is something bad out there, and most Atheists don’t. In 2009, a survey of people who identified as Christian, in the United States, showed they do not believe in the Devil: I remember old rock songs like “Devil you” and “Beware the devil woman” but those are just entertainment on the radio. So, does that evil person exist, and how does this question even matter today? Human beings do their own evil deeds, and we don’t need an evil ally for that. Or do we? I know I’m not a …

All things work together for good

CBN reports on how Victor Marx, founder of All Things Possible Ministries had been kicked off a flight because he allegedly wasn’t wearing his facemask properly. Photos and videos suggest Victor’s mask was covering both his nose and mouth. However, he was also wearing a t-shirt in support of police on the front and a Biblical verse on the back, Joshua 1:9, but I am sure that had nothing to do with what happened. When Victor questioned the male attendant about his mask, CBN explains what happened next: Then the attendant threatened to have Marx removed from the plane. When Marx questioned the man’s reasoning, the flight attendant reportedly turned and walked away. The video reveals that after a few minutes had passed, the captain of the plane, who Marx describes as being embarrassed, asked him to step outside. The captain told Marx the flight attendant “felt threatened” by him. The pilot felt bad, the video explained. “Our masks were worked the same way as the flight attendant. It couldn’t be the mask, so why …
