With Texas taking the lead stating it was lifting its COVID facemask requirements and allowing businesses to function at 100% capacity, four other states have followed suit stating they will end the need for facemasks when out in public. This was in response to rising vaccination rates and declining numbers of COVID cases. In addition, the Democrat Governor of Connecticut, Ned Lamont, has announced that stores can return to 100% capacity, but its facemask requirement remains in place. CBN explains: Meanwhile, a number of states are lifting restrictions as new cases and hospitalizations have plunged. Gov. Ned Lamont (D) of the blue state of Connecticut announced he’s lifting nearly all limits on businesses – returning to full capacity at restaurants, hair salons, and gyms. Five states: Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana, and Texas have all lifted their mask mandates. “Texans have mastered the safe strategies – they don’t need an order from Austin, Texas telling them what to do,” says Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX). READ: 5 States Lift Mask Mandates and Even This Blue State Lifted …
According to a report on College Fix, Jonas Ludvigsson, a professor of epidemiology at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, will no longer be publishing any studies on the Coronavirus because of attacks by a woke left-wing mob, when his study contradicted their feelings.
Sometimes it is difficult to understand the thinking behind the health authorities making the decisions behind the lockdowns. Take the Canadian province of Alberta, as an example. Even though intensive care (ICU) admissions in 2020, during the height of the pandemic, were 7% lower than what they were in 2019, the government still refuses to end the lockdown.
According to a recent Gallup Poll, 65% of Austrians believe that the country’s lockdown is causing more damage than the virus. This is up from the 41% of Austrians who had that same sentiment last year. As the lockdowns continue, the Austrians are seeing two things. First, the lockdowns are clearly not working. If they did, the virus should have been stopped in its track last year. Secondly, they are seeing first hand the damage the lockdown is doing to the economy and people’s lives.
While Matt Meyer, the president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, led the charge opposing teachers returning to in-person classes in California, he was caught dropping off his child at a private (not public) in-person preschool.
With one of the world’s most successful vaccination programs, Britain is on the verge of ending its lockdowns that were among the most restrictive in the western world. But recent access to information request revealed that with its lockdown soon to end, the government wants to extend its law banning protests. Some are calling it a blatant attack on freedom of speech. Breitbart explains: The British government is reportedly seeking to extend powers granted to police to crack down on protests even after lockdown restrictions are lifted, raising concerns about the state of freedom of speech in the country. A freedom of information request has revealed that Home Secretary Priti Patel wrote to the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS), questioning how the government could continue to limit protests. In the September letter, reported by The Observer on Sunday, Patel said that while protesting is “a cornerstone of our democracy”, she inquired as to how the Home Office could prevent protests from impacting upon “the rights of others to go about their …
People are mocking Wenatchee High School in Washington State, USA, after it had members of its band play their musical instrument inside green tents during practice.
James Coates, pastor of GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta Canada was arrested for violating the province’s lockdown orders and holding church services. He has not been released from jail because he refuses to abide by the court’s bail conditions. In an interview with Faytene Grasseschi, Pastor Coate’s wife, Erin, explains the church’s side of the story.
While many politicians and health authorities have ended youth sports activities as a way to stop the spread of COVID-19, a massive study by researchers from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine revealed that there is essentially a zero chance of spreading COVID through a sports games.
California was the only state in America still banning indoor church services during its lockdown. However, in a recent ruling, the US Supreme Court has just forced Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom to lift the ban. It is because of something called the US Constitution.
The Oregon teachers union demanded that the state vaccinate teachers before they would return to work. Democrat Gov. Kate Brown agreed believing that the kids needed to get back to school. So, the Governor pushed teachers to the front of line ahead of the elderly and those most vulnerable to the virus. The teachers got vaccinated, but now, with the support of the union, they are still refusing to turn to work.
After a snitch reported that children were tobogganing on a hill in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a police and city enforcement officer were dispatched to disperse the crowd. Children were crying after they were told to leave the hill.
It is time to reopen schools. While teacher’s unions are aggressively opposing the reopening of schools in America, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states there is little evidence that COVID is spreading in schools.
When a young pastor’s wife got off the plane, she was immediately confronted by a police officer and government official and taken away to a secret government facility. The distraught pastor has no idea what happened to his wife, and the police refused to tell her husband where she is. The only twist of this story is that it didn’t happen in Communist China, it happened in Calgary, Canada. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s lockdown rules requiring two week isolation for anyone travelling in from another country at a government facility have not even been announced yet and already police are enforcing it. They have basically imprisoned Chris Mathis’s wife and won’t tell him where they have locked up his wife. The pastor’s wife also had a form stating that she had just tested negative for COVID, but let’s not confuse the story with unnecessary facts. The Western Standard reports: The new [Trudeau] rules weren’t even announced yet Thursday night, but it appears officials at YYC were ready. “(My wife Nikki) arrived in Calgary tonight …
Let’s call just call it a coincidence for now. But as a petition, started by outraged Californians to recall Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom due to his dystopian lockdown, quickly closes in on the needed number to force a recall election, Gov Newsom has suddenly seen the light.
Britain’s lockdown have finally reached the lunatic stage. British police just fined four men, in four separate cars, who were sitting in their vehicles looking at the massive snow fall that recently hit the British Isles. The four men were each fined £200 for “looking at snow.”
Here is a five-second video on how the Dutch police deal with protestors opposing the lockdown. Of course, everyone is wondering if the individual will be included in Holland’s COVID stats?
A mother in Canada was recently issued an $880 ticket for breaking some still, yet-to-be-determined, COVID lockdown regulation in the province of Ontario. Natasha Kohl had dropped off her three young children at her in-law’s place because she needed to shop for groceries. Under Ontario’s lockdown, child care is still allowed.
It seems that some bureaucrats are determined to keep this COVID pandemic going on forever. Why? Well, they are not affected. They often get to work from home, still get their paychecks, benefits and pensions, so, what do they care about the people suffering from the lockdowns. But one of the problems with pandemics is you need numbers. How can you extend and embrace more severe lockdowns, if the COVID numbers are starting to fall, as they are recently doing in Britain? READ: Britain’s coronavirus cases fall again amid ‘scaremongering’ row The solution: there are a bunches of people out there who are coming down with COVID, but are not getting sick. Many show no symptoms and if they do the symptoms are so minor they are confusing them with a cold or allergies. Of course, as a result, they are not getting tested. It is estimated that as many as 80% of the people fall into the asymptomatic category. And here is the thing, the chances of asymptomatic people spreading COVID is extremely low. …
In November, the government shut down gyms in the province as part of its COVID-1984 strategy. But not all. While private sector gyms were forced to close, gyms for government employees in the city of Winnipeg were allowed to remain open. It seems that city employees must have a superhuman immunity to COVID.
On Jan. 8, 2021, the Canadian province of Quebec initiated a COVID curfew preventing people from leaving their homes after 8 pm unless of course, they are walking their dog. Apparently, dogs protect people from catching COVID after 8 pm. But the silliness doesn’t stop there. In December, the Calhoun family who live in Montreal, Quebec received permission from the New Brunswick government to travel to that province to provide care for their ailing father, 77, who was living alone and in and out of hospital. They were intending to return to Quebec on Jan 2, 2021, but it was delayed when their vehicle had problems and required parts to be ordered in from outside of Canada. The family, who was travelling with three small kids, decided to rent a car and return home on Jan. 8, 2021, the day the Quebec government initiated its 8 pm curfew. They were intending to be back before the 8 pm curfew hit, but travelling with three small kids derailed those good intentions. Global News explains what happened …
Many of the teachers’ unions are battling any attempts to have kids returning to in person teaching. Of course, they are citing fears of the COVID-1984 pandemic as the reason. One of those leading the charge against reopening schools is a left-leaning leader of the Chicago Teachers Union. I completely understand why she is opposed. I mean who wants to be in blustery Chicago in mid winter, when you could be relaxing at a pool in Puerto Rico?
According to a report in the Scottish Sun, Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon was caught breaking some of the lockdown rules that she imposed on her citizens. This involves another one of those ‘rules for thee, but not for me’politicians that we are seeing so often lately.
California’s Los Angeles County has finally decided it is not above the U.S. Constitution. Liberty Counsel is reporting that the County’s health department has removed its caps limiting how many people can attend a worship service that had previously been restricted to 50% capacity to a maximum of 100 people.
At a recent new conference in Ontario, Canada, Dr Barbara Yaffe told the people getting vaccinated in that province for COVID will still need to wear facemasks, because it is uncertain if the vaccine would protect people from the virus.
California’s Democrat politicians have imposed some of the strictest lockdown rules in America. They now forbid people from going for unnecessary walks. Of course, this is being done to stop the spread of COVID-1984. So two how comes?
According to Global News, the Canadian province of Manitoba has decided to reverse its ban on drive in church services that were part of the province’s COVID-1984 lockdown.
In the midst of the COVID-1984 lockdown, many governments have been particularly keen on trying to stop Church services under the guise of stopping COVID. However, the Catholic News Agency is reporting that one of the most restrictive bans has come to an abrupt end in the Canton of Geneva in Switzerland when a judge ruled that the COVID-1984 ban on church services was unconstitutional. The government ban had stopped all church services and allowed only limited attendance at funerals and weddings. Several Christians in the Canton challenged the ban arguing it impinged on their religious freedom. The judge gave a temporary restraining order allowing services to restart until the case was heard at a later date. The judge noted the state would probably lose the case because its ban violated the Swiss constitution that guarantees freedom of worship. Switzerland has 26 Cantons, and the judge’s ruling means that services are allowed to restart in Switzerland’s capital city, Geneva. Switzerland has the reputation of supposedly being the “human rights capital of the world” but its …
I don’t know whether to laugh, cry or celebrate. There is a story coming out of Ohio about the strange, bewildering lockdown regulations being imposed by the Ohio High School Athletic Associated on athletes participating in wrestling events.
We are living in strange times, and this is a very strange year. I don’t want to criticize the authorities who must make hard choices, but some restrictions are strange. Where I live, the government and the medical authorities are being cautious with social restrictions. We are mostly warned to be careful, and given good advice. I haven’t heard about fines or arrests for breaking the rules. My work, for the government, is high-risk, and I have a generous supply of spray cleaner and hand disinfectant. I also have training on how to use the cleaners and stay safe. A neighbor goes to a church near us and they are probably still refusing to wear masks in their services. No one is talking about this in the news, my neighbor told me when I met him in the back alley. Do you believe in God? If you are a believer, what tells you to believe? What are the signals that you need? Do you attend a church or a temple, a mosque or a synagogue, …
Recently, a reporter for Canada’s state-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was caught stalking a small church in Chilliwack in British Columbia, Canada that was holding a service during the lockdown.
RCMP in the town of Steinbach, Manitoba blocked people from attending a drive-in church service this past Sunday, where people would remain in their cars and listen to a service being broadcast by a shortwave FM. Apparently, Manitoba’s health officials are concerned that people listening to a service in their cars with the windows rolled up could transfer COVID to neighbouring vehicles. Like they say, we must trust the science.
As Britain’s politicians and bureaucrats (don’t kid yourself bureaucrats are a big part of the problem) push for more stringent lockdowns in that country during the second COVID wave, people are pushing back.
Part of the problem with the COVID-1984 lockdowns being implemented by governments around the world is that people are not getting the full facts on what is really happening. Case in point, the province of Alberta in Canada where COVID cases are apparently surging and some are demanding a full and utter lockdown of the province.
Are the freedoms and liberties of Canadians under attack? Recently, an opposition politician in the province of Ontario was charged for “organizing and attending an anti-lockdown protest” in that province. He could potentially face jail time.
