Economic wreckage caused by US lockdowns at $169 billion and counting

With coronavirus lockdowns forcing businesses to shut their doors for months, a team of researchers has attempted to find out how many lives the restrictions saved in the United States and just how much economic damage was caused.

The sobering calculations found that the closures from the pandemic's onset in March through to the rollbacks in May saved approximately 29,000 lives and came with a $169 billion price tag.


Comment: It's difficult to know how many deaths were caused solely by coronavirus because of the relentless obfuscation and institutional misattribution of deaths by the authorities in an attempt to justify their tyrannical lockdowns.


The number crunchers from HEC Paris business school and Bocconi University in Milan say this amounts to around $6 million per person.

Comment: The death and destruction wrought by the lockdowns are already proving to be many times worse than the coronavirus itself:

Chaotic scenes were filmed at Shanghai Pudong Airport after several workers tested positive for coronavirus.

In footage shared online, people in hazmat suits can be seen trying to herd huge crowds who do not appear to be cooperating.

A number of the airport's baggage handlers and their close contacts tested positive for Covid-19 on 22 November, reports The Global Times.

Paul Joseph Watson slams elitist arrogance: "They think you're stupid"

they think you're stupid
Yesterday, I expended considerable time and effort to write about "The Great Reset," a leftist movement that imagines a brave new leftist world built around climate purity and socialist economic principles, with wise elites governing the masses. If I'd waited a day, I could have just shown you Paul Joseph Watson's latest video — "They think you're stupid" — which covers "The Great Reset" and the "Great Cover-Up about the Great Reset."

If you're debating whether to spend time to watch the video (at the end of this post), let me tell you a bit about it. Watson doesn't stop with just the Great Reset that I'd described. Along the way, Watson torches just about everything that the elites are raining down on the masses, all courtesy of the extremely beneficial Wuhan virus.

Sure, the virus killed people (although I think it's clear that, at least in America, mortality numbers have been inflated for political ends). But for the left, the virus has been an extraordinary blessing, allowing leftists to exert unimagined control over people, enrich themselves, and shift large sections of America into the government dependency category.

Law enforcement across the US overwhelmingly REFUSING to enforce COVID orders - Will the public follow?

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones appeared on Fox News and stated his department would not enforce the Governor’s new curfew, nor any other COVID orders from him or unelected Health Department bureaucrats.
As literally millions of people take to the streets all across Europe to protest new COVID orders as many face a second "lockdown" this year in the name of COVID, there is growing evidence that as states in the U.S. try to order more people to obey their edicts as the U.S. also heads towards a second lockdown, that law enforcement simply is going to refuse to enforce these orders this time around.

Why? Because they are too busy enforcing real laws and chasing down real criminals, rather than worrying about who is in your home for Thanksgiving, or if you are walking around outside without a face mask, etc.

The vast majority of the U.S. public seems to still get their information from the corporate media controlled by the Globalists, so will enough of the public wake up to the fact that all of these COVID orders are NOT laws, and are legally unenforceable?

The American public appears to be sufficiently uneducated enough today to not even understand what a "law" is anymore. A new law is made when someone in the legislature proposes a "bill" which then must pass both houses of the legislature, which is the government body tasked with making "laws," and then signed into law by the executive branch, either the Governor at the state level, or the President at the national level.

“The system was rigged against one candidate.” -- Tucker Carlson
Was this his mea culpa?

Tucker Carlson opened his show on Monday suggesting possible fraud in voting machines, "It's a real issue no matter who raises it."

This was after he blasted Attorney Sidney Powell last week for not offering him proof of voting irregularities in this year's presidential election.

Dr. Scott Atlas responds to the Stanford Faculty Senate Resolution

I was disappointed to learn that the Faculty Senate of Stanford University on November 19, 2020 adopted a resolution criticizing my work for the United States government. We all wish to guide our nation through this pandemic with the best advice and knowledge that we can bring to bear. It is for this reason that I accepted the request of the President of the United States to serve as an advisor since August of this year. I have been honored to serve our country during these difficult months for our nation and the world.

I am a health policy scholar, medical scientist and doctor. I have always used science and factual evidence to help generate the best possible policies to save lives. My views in favor of the careful protection of our nation's most vulnerable while safely re-opening society are far from contrary to science. These views are held by some of the world's top epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford itself, as well as by thousands of medical and public health scientists from around the world. I have also repeatedly recommended mitigation measures, including social distancing and mask-wearing when one cannot distance. Media reports to the contrary are simply false.

2020 not enough? WHO envoy predicts third wave of Covid-19 in Europe next year

With Europe already suffering a second wave of coronavirus infections, World Health Organization envoy David Nabarro has warned that the region could see another spike in infections next year.

In an interview on Saturday with Swiss newspaper Solothurner Zeitung, Nabarro said that European governments failed to build up the "necessary infrastructure" to keep the virus under control after the first wave of infections this spring. "Now we have the second wave. If they don't build the necessary infrastructure, we'll have a third wave early next year."

Infections are once again surging throughout Europe, after a lull this summer. France and Germany recorded some 33,000 new cases combined on Saturday, while the UK reported nearly 20,000 cases on the same day, and Spain announced more than 15,000 on Friday. Deaths remain proportionally lower throughout Europe than during the first wave, however.

Despite Nabarro's stark prediction, the WHO has cautioned against responding too heavy-handedly to the pandemic. In a briefing on Thursday, the organization's European director, Hans Kluge, called for "systematic and general mask-wearing" and "strict controls on social gatherings," but described national lockdowns as a "last resort" policy.

'A clip from a new HBO documentary showed adults accompanying a 4-year-old biological boy to announce his preferred sexual identity as a girl.

The clip showed a child dressed in a rainbow skirt being led to a stage at a ceremony celebrating LGBTQ persons. The child is handed a microphone as the child's mother announces, "This is Phoenix." The child then turned to the mother and said, "I'm a little shy."

"You're a little shy? Do you want to tell everybody if you're a boy or a girl?" the mother asked.

Now is the time for Americans to rebel against lockdowns, mask laws and forced vaccination

new symbol of tyrrany
With the presidential election highly contested and the mainstream media hyping the rising infection numbers, the public is now facing important questions regarding the future of the pandemic response. Some states have decided to unilaterally introduce "executive orders" to restrict citizen movements, business openings and public activities.

Anthony Fauci is on the news constantly, calling for families to cancel Thanksgiving and Christmas and telling Americans to just "do what we are told". The media is generally trying to drum up fear in the minds of the populace and paint images of plague and death everywhere. If Biden does actually end up in the White House, a federalized and national high level lockdown is on the table starting in January.

In April of this year I published an article titled 'Waves Of Mutilation: Medical Tyranny And The Cashless Society', which outlined a social engineering model put forward by globalists at MIT and the Imperial College of London which I called "wave theory". The model essentially works like this:

Governments must use the pandemic as a rationale for "waves" of restrictive lockdowns, followed by controlled re-openings of the economy and of normal human activity. Globalists claim that this will "slow" the spread of the coronavirus and save lives. However, they also openly admit that these cycles of closures and openings have other uses.
