Cries for freedom in Australia

The tyrannical lockdown of the southern state of Victoria in Australia by the state’s radical left-wing premier Daniel Andrews has people crying out for freedom.

Why are new COVID cases surging in France and Spain?

Europe is experiencing its second wave of COVID, with France reporting 10,000 new infections a day and Spain hitting 12,000 new cases a day. Several other European countries are also reporting increases as well. The Daily Mail explains: France‘s daily coronavirus cases have topped 10,000 for the first time while Spain’s have rocketed to 12,000.  The countries’ soaring case numbers have led to fears that the UK, which has seen its daily case figures steadily rise since August, could be heading in the same direction.  On Friday, the UK announced 3,539 new daily coronavirus cases – the highest toll in four months. […] And Spain announced a whopping 12,183 cases on Friday, bringing the total to above 566,300 just four months after the country’s low of 132 new cases on May 25.  But fortunately, the number of new deaths is not climbing as fast as the new cases during the second wave. The Daily Mail also explained why: Health bosses said most of the new infections in the UK were young people, many who only had mild or …

Lockdowns lead to opioid crisis

With many questioning if the lockdowns even worked in stemming the COVID pandemic, reports are coming in that opioid usage dramatically escalated during the Lock downs. The Daily Wire explains: County health departments across the country are measuring a significantly increased number of opioid deaths over last year’s data and over deaths tallied in the first few months of the year before widespread stay-at-home orders were put in place, according to The Wall Street Journal. The pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have hit addicts and those struggling to stay sober particularly hard. Social distancing rules and fear of the virus have driven people to stay much more isolated from society and limited the typical tools for people struggling with addiction, such as sessions with therapists. One therapist added that isolation is one of the worst things for a person struggling with drug and even alcohol addiction.

What, Me Fear?

What we think, we tend to believe. For example, most of the media outlets focus on Covid19. No wonder people are scared. The Bible says that we are who we hang out with. Proverbs 13:20 says “Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.” Walk with the scared, and you will get scared. Scared people hide. They are fearful. Scared and fearful people have anxiety and stress to the point in which they do not live their lives. Normal and healthy things like family gatherings, visiting children and friends, shopping and attending church are seen as dangerous and self-centered. What was seen as good is seen as bad. The heroes in a fear-based culture are the ones who showcase fear. The people who hide are the good ones. The people who listen to the government and media are the good ones. They are compliant and helping stop the spread of Covid. Except this plan of division and isolation is not helping. Not according to the very people who told …

The Virus Wars: Are you ready?

Many people are protesting the restrictions we live under, with the COVID 19 pandemic. I work with the public, and recently a woman talked back to me and protested me. I am trained to wear a mask and use disinfectants; we have safety procedures, and I think they are good. I think we are all safer with the procedures and disinfectants, and I can still do my work. One woman protested that face masks cause distress for the client I was talking to. The woman took out her phone and found a government web site with information for people who have problems with masks. If you are wondering, I didn’t look to verify the information. The place was isolated and there were no known cases of COVID 19 for many miles. I carefully disinfected myself and made sure my mask was in position, and I finished my work, and I cleaned myself carefully after. The risk was small, and those people made their own decisions about their safety. I did not want to be a …

Totalitarians down under

During the Cold War, Communist East Germany had to build a wall to stop people from fleeing their communist utopia to freedom loving West Germany. The communists built guard towers and used search lights. Australia’s State of Victoria, population 6.7 million, has just implemented a hard lockdown because it had 670 new COVID cases. As part of this lockdown, it is against the law for people to travel in cars more than 5 km from their home, so they can’t even legally flee this totalitarian utopia. Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews, who is described as a “radical leftist,” is using high-tech surveillance to stop people from escaping. WND explains: (SUMMIT NEWS) – Authorities in Melbourne, Australia will use high-tech surveillance drones to catch people outside not wearing masks as well as to scan for vehicles that are in violation of curfew by being more than 5km from home. “High powered drones will be used to find people not wearing masks and cars too far from home,” according to a 7News Melbourne news report. The drones will …

Report: Data reveals the lockdowns did not work

According to a study by JP Morgan, reported in the Daily Mail, the lockdowns associated with the coronavirus have not altered the course of the virus, but did destroy millions of jobs. Here is the basis of JP Morgan’s argument. If the lock downs had been effective in limiting how many people came down with the virus, then once they were lifted, you would expect a spike in new cases. In fact, that has not happened. The majority of countries where the lock downs were lifted are seeing a reduction in new cases suggesting the virus has its own life cycle (see chart below). And on a similar note, the report said initiating lockdowns did not alter the viruses’ transmission either, as the number of new cases escalated after they were put in place. The Daily Mail writes: ‘While we often hear that lockdowns are driven by scientific models, and that there is an exact relationship between the level of economic activity and the spread of [the] virus – this is not supported by the …

New York study questions effectiveness of lock downs

The result of a survey of people hospitalized in New York state for COVID-19 over the past week have some questioning the effectiveness of the lock down in stemming the spread of the virus. The survey of 1,000 new admissions revealed that 66% of them were non-essential workers, meaning they were not working and staying at home. If the lock down was effective, people staying at home should not be the largest source of new admissions. The survey also revealed: 73% of the new people hospitalized were over 51. 96% of them had underlying health issues. 20% were aged between 61 and 70 (the largest infection rate of any age group by decade breakdown). Many have argued instead of locking down the whole state, governments should concentrate their resources on helping those most at risk.
