Study: Lockdowns ‘one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history’

Yet another study has concluded that the lockdown cure was worse than the disease it was supposed to be fighting. Not only were they basically ineffective in reducing the number of COVID deaths, but they had unintended negative consequences.

Australian officials literally calling for ‘New World Order’

People living in Australia faced some of the most Draconian lockdowns in the world, perhaps second only to Communist China, as some left-wing premiers turned into tyrants. But even with this, most were shocked when two senior health officials with the state of New South Wales (NSW), blatantly admitted the state was moving towards a ‘New World Order.’

While Delta COVID cases are up, deaths are down

FEE (Foundation for Economic Education) is reporting that while the mainstream media is fearmongering over the Delta COVID variant, and health officials are airing dire warnings about a return to lockdowns and masks, a couple professors at Harvard and Stanford are wondering why. This is because the number of people dying from COVID is now lower than the moment when governments were deciding to wind down the lockdowns, because of dropping COVID deaths. Harvard Medical School Professor Martin Kulldorff tweeted: It is uncertain what has changed, but over the past several months activists have been pushing the idea of ‘Zero COVID’, meaning that the lockdowns should only end once there are no more COVID cases. This will never happen, so essentially they are pushing for permanent lockdowns.

5 times as many UK children died of suicide than COVID

Despite evidence suggesting lockdowns didn’t work, they became the faddish way of dealing with the virus, but a recent study by researchers at several universities in Britain (University of Liverpool, University College London, University of York, and the University of Bristol) concluded that five times more children died of suicide during the lockdowns, than from COVID.

Canada: Most COVID deaths were over age of 85

It was a stunning admission about the incompetence of health officials to protect those most vulnerable to the COVID virus. Blacklock’s Reporter just released information on a report written for the Canadian Federal government, that stated that most of the people who died from COVID in Canada were over the age of 85 and most had Alzheimer’s or dementia. The report noted that these people “may have been at a high risk of dying over this period, regardless of the pandemic.” According to a chart supplied by Blacklock’s, over 95% of the COVID deaths in Canada involved people over the age of 65. SOURCE: Most COVID victims over 85 Rather than focussing on the people who were actually vulnerable to the virus, health officials decided to lock down the whole country. Lockdowns were the faddish thing to do. They didn’t work and nobody cared.

Did lockdowns actually increase the number of deaths?

There have been several studies revealing that lockdowns were an absolute failure, if their primary purpose was to stop people dying from COVID (here, here and here.) In fact, it may be worse than we thought, as a new study by University of California economists and the RAND Corporation concluded that the lockdowns or stay-in-place orders may have in fact increased the number of people dying because of COVID.

Video: Lockdowns vs protecting the vulnerable

In this video, there is a discussion about the failure of lockdowns to stop the pandemic. Those in charge have tried to explain away their failure with woeful cries, “if we had only locked down sooner.” Yet more and more studies are stating the obvious that the lockdowns did not work. If they did, this pandemic would have been over months ago. Many are now saying there should have been a targeted approach, focussing our attention on protecting those who are actually vulnerable to the virus, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. In the US, 95% of the COVID deaths involved people over the age of 50 with 80% over the age of 65 and of course, many of those had underlying health issues as well. READ: 95 Percent of Americans Killed by COVID-19 Were 50 or Older In the Canadian province of British Columbia, two-thirds of the COVID deaths were in nursing homes and how many of the remaining deaths involved those over the age of 65 and living at home.

Survey: Everyone missed the city on the hill

We have family that lives several hours away and as we drove home after a visit, we often end up driving during the night. And towards the end of our journey, I would find myself looking for the lights of our city radiating into the night sky as it offered hope, that our hours spent in a car would soon be coming to an end, and we would be home. In Matthew 5, Jesus also spoke of light telling believers that we are a light to the world, and a city on a hill that can’t be hidden. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16 NIV) During dark times, light offers guidance and …

Video: How governments weaponized fear

In an interview with Julia Hartley Brewer, author Laura Dodsworth explains that the scientists working with the British government on COVID purposefully weaponized fear in order to get the Brits to comply with their government overlords. The government is using behavioural psychology to control people. They have done such a good job of terrorizing British citizens that people are now terrified of resuming their normal lives. From the YouTube preamble: Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was “totalitarian”. Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour have expressed regret about the “unethical” methods.

Court allows Calgary police ‘to do anything necessary’ to enforce church inspection

I previously reported on how a Canadian Pastor, Artur Pawlowski, who grew up under communism in Poland, twice drove an Alberta health inspector from his Calgary church, The Fortress (Cave) of Adullam, when she demanded entrance for a COVID health inspection. According to the Daily Wire, Alberta’s health department has now received a court-ordered warrant allowing the police “to do anything necessary,” if Pastor Pawlowski obstructs the health department’s third attempt to enter the building.

Belgium judge orders government to end lockdown

A judge in Belgium has ordered the country to end the county-wide lockdown within 30 days. The Brussels Times writes: The Belgian State has been ordered to lift “all coronavirus measures” within 30 days, as the legal basis for them is insufficient, a Brussels court ruled on Wednesday. The League for Human Rights had filed the lawsuit several weeks ago and challenged Belgium’s system of implementing the measures using Ministerial Decrees, which means it is done without any input from parliament. The judge gave the Belgian State 30 days to provide a sound legal basis, or face a penalty of €5,000 per day that this period is exceeded, with a maximum limit of €200,000, reports Le Soir. READ: Belgium must lift ‘all Covid-19 measures’ within 30 days, Brussels court rules The judge essentially ruled that the government utilized the Civil Safety Act of 2007 to institute the lockdown that gives the government extreme power in emergency situations. The judge ruled that the government must now prove its extreme lockdown measures are necessary and that they work. …

Why is mental health rapidly declining in Ontario?

Mental health experts in the Canadian province of Ontario are warning of people’s declining mental health due to COVID and its related lockdowns. In fact, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, things have gotten much worse because of the second lockdown in the province. Of course, it’s not surprising, since the province also has one of the most restrictive lockdowns in Canada. Notice, how people are also claiming they are lonely. The Toronto Sun explains: The poll suggests only 35 per cent of Ontarians consider their mental health to be “very good” or “excellent,” compared to 52 per cent in the first round of polling in May. It also shows nearly 80 per cent of respondents believe there will be a “serious mental health crisis” post-pandemic, compared to 66 per cent in August and 69 per cent in May. […] The poll also found respondents were getting more isolated. Fifty-seven per cent reported feeling lonelier since the pandemic began, with 47 per cent saying they wish they had someone to talk to. And 36 …

Lockdowns’ ticking time bomb

More stats are coming forward and saying the lockdowns are causing far more damage than the virus they are supposedly fighting. There is a huge ticking time bomb in Britain as stats reveal that because of the lockdown restrictions, there has been a dramatic drop in treatments for serious conditions and heart problems.
