LOCKDOWN FAILURE: More Than Half of U.S. Counties have NO Coronavirus Deaths

More than half of U.S. counties have had no coronavirus deaths. So, why are we locking them all down, again?

Published

For yet more proof that the lockdown policy has been an abject failure, more than half of U.S. counties have had no coronavirus deaths at all. So, why are we locking every county down, again?

As some municipalities and states begin to ease these needless lockdowns, the numbers show that most of the country hasn’t even seen any deaths from the virus.

The Daily Signal noted that the numbers are startling:

… as of May 4, just 10 states account for 70% of all U.S. cases and 77% of all deaths. Together, New York and New Jersey alone account for 38% of all cases and 48% of total COVID-19 deaths.

Just five states—New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, and California—account for 54% of all of the confirmed cases in the U.S. and 61% of all coronavirus deaths.

These state-level figures do not, however, adequately describe the concentrated nature of the spread of COVID-19.

The article goes on saying, “30 counties with the most COVID-19 cases account for 50% of all the cases in the U.S. (and 57% of all deaths). That is, just 1% of the counties in the U.S. are responsible for half of the country’s coronavirus cases and more than half of the deaths.”

More telling, 24 of the 30 counties are concentrated in the north east, huddled around the Philadelphia and Boston corridor.

So, tell us again… why was it necessary to lockdown the entire country, and destroy the jobs of millions of people?

Why was it necessary to throw tens of millions of Americans onto the unemployment rolls and to destroy tens of thousands of small businesses?

These lockdowns have been an utter disaster.

HOT MIC! Pennsylvania Democrats Busted Admitting Masks Are Just "Political Theater"

Pennsylvania State Representative Wendy Ullman and Governor Tom Wolf were caught joking on a hot mic about taking their masks off just before they spoke at a press conference.

This needs to go viral.

Just as Wendy Ullman was preparing to speak behind the podium at a press conference north of Philadelphia on Tuesday, Tom Wolf can be heard off-camera to her left, saying: “So Wendy, I’m gonna take, I’m gonna take my mask off when I speak.”

Ullman walks toward Wolf, off-camera, and says: “I will as well, just, I’m waiting so that we can do a little political theater.”

Wolf replies, “Okay,” and the two Democrats share a laugh. Ullman then walks back toward the podium and finishes her sentence, saying, “so that it’s on camera.”

Twitter weighed in:

NYC Mayor de Blasio Announces ‘Mask Patrols’ Will Roam City to Attack Non-Wearers

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged to send roving gangs of “mask police” to roam the city to harass people who refuse to wear a mask in this era of COVID hysteria.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged to send roving gangs of “mask police” to roam the city to harass people who refuse to wear a mask in this era of COVID hysteria.

De Blasio announced a testing blitz after several areas of the Big Apple saw recent spikes in new COVID-19 positive tests.

But, in a move that seems similar to the radical “Shariah Police” that radical Musims use to beat people who refuse to observe strict Islamic rules, de Blasio went farther than that.

During his Tuesday press conference and warned that he is also planning a new campaign consisting of “contact tracers” and city employees to fan out to harass people over mask-wearing.

“Patrols will start issuing fines to people who refuse to wear masks even after being offered a free mask and a warning that not wearing it will result in a fine,” Fox 5 reported.

“That will happen aggressively. Clearly, our goal, of course, is to give everyone a free face mask and get them to wear it,” de Blasio said.

Per Fox 5:

The mayor warned that if the situation continues to deteriorate that the city will prohibit all gatherings that are not ‘very small’ and businesses that are deemed ‘nonessential’ will have to close again.

“No one wants that to happen if it can be avoided,” de Blasio said. “If it does have to happen we will target it as carefully as possible but, at this point, it is a situation that is very serious and we have to have all options on the table.”

BUSTED: Oregon’s ‘Youngest COVID-19 Victim’ Did Not Dies of COVID-19

Oregon liberals have been lying about the COVID-19 death of 26-year-old man, calling him the “youngest to die” from the virus.

Published

Oregon liberals have been lamenting the reported COVID-19 death of 26-year-old man, calling him the “youngest to die” from the virus. Now it has been learned he never had the virus at all.

Matthew Irvin, 26, died in July after a severe illness that lasted only a few days. Since his death, he has been lamented as the state’s youngest victim of COVID-19 and has been used to buttress the left’s claims that the virus is deadly to everyone of all ages.

According to KGW-TV, Mr. Irvin’s death was added to the coronavirus count as soon as he died because his cause of death was listed as COVID on his death certificate.

The family never believed the hospital’s proclamations, though, and persisted in trying to get his real cause of death verified.

“They did blood tests and his white blood cell count was elevated so they said it looked COVID-like, basically,” Irvin’s mother, Kimberly Irvin, told the media. “From early on I felt that the COVID diagnosis was incorrect.”

They didn’t look at it differently. They assumed it was COVID and should have done an autopsy to find out why this young man died,” said Irvin’s stepfather, Michael Laheyne.

Now the CDC says that Irvin never had the coronavirus at all.

With their suspicions confirmed, now the family wants to know what happened to their loved one. How did he really die?

“He had a big heart and it was way too early to take him. And I will be first to admit that there is some anger about him leaving us,” Laheyne said through tears. “We just want closure. It’s been ripped back open drastically and it’s really hard.”

“Hopefully we get the answers we want – or need – to have closure for us.”

Liberals Lied: It’s Confirmed, No Evidence Shows Hydroxychloroquine a Danger to the Heart

Now it is confirmed that the left’s claim is a lie. Hydroxychloroquine does not present any danger at all for a patient’s heart.

Published

After President Donald Trump said that the ages-old drug hydroxychloroquine might help some patients get through the coronavirus, liberals attacked him saying that the drug was somehow bad for your heart. Now it is confirmed that the left’s claim is a lie. Hydroxychloroquine does not present any danger at all for a patient’s heart.

Trump sang the praises for the more than 50-year-old anti-malarial medication back in May. And as soon as he did, leftists went on the attack calling Trump a murderer for daring to talk about the medication.

Eventually the left, and other willing dupes such as Fox Business Network host Neil Cavuto, settled on the proclamation that hydroxychloroquine could kill you because it sometimes harmed a patient’s heart.

This was always a lie.

The demagogues used as their proof the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) became fearful that the drug had given some patients testing its use for COVID a heart arrhythmia.

But now scientists are saying that hydroxychloroquine was not the cause of these earlier worries.

According to MSN, a new study has found:

Seven (1.1%) of the participants had a serious ventricular arrhythmia, which the scientists did not link to hydroxychloroquine.

“Hydroxychloroquine treatment was associated with QT prolongation, as expected, but the change was small,” said study author Dr Alessio Gasperetti from the Monzino Cardiology Centre in Milan.

“There was no connection between the drug and the occurrence of arrhythmias.

“The study shows hydroxychloroquine administration, alone or in combination with other potentially QT-prolonging drugs, is safe for short-term treatment of COVID-19 patients at home or in hospital, provided they undergo risk assessment and ECG [electrocardiogram] monitoring by a physician.”

The jury is still out on just how effective the drug is for COVID, though it is clear that if it helps, it only helps for patients that are early in the virus, and it does nothing for those with advanced cases.

CDC ‘Accidentally’ Put Out False Info Saying COVID Spreads in Air Farther Than Six Feet

The Centers for Disease Control admitted on Monday that it had put out false information on its website saying that the coronavirus can spread through the air.

Published

The Centers for Disease Control admitted on Monday that it had put out false information on its website saying that the coronavirus can spread through the air farther than the previously accepted six-foot range.

The CDC insisted that it was an “accident” that its website was updated to include the false information on the previous Friday, according to CNBC.

The incorrect information stated that the virus could spread farther than six feet and recommended that people use air purifiers indoors to reduce airborne germs.

But less than 72 hours later, the CDC was saying that its update was all wrong.

“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website,” the CDC said Monday.

“CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted,” the agency added.

The World Health Organization had become confused by the website update and contacted the CDC for clarification.

“The WHO had not seen any ‘new evidence’ on airborne particles and was checking with the CDC to “better understand” the exact nature of the change, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, said during a news conference at the agency’s Geneva headquarters,” CNBC reported.

There is still no widely accepted evidence, even among the hysterical CDC, that COVID-19 can be spread easily through the air.

University Suspends Professor Who Said She Hopes Trump Voters Die of Coronavirus

A Marshall University professor has been suspended for saying in a video rant that she hopes Trump’s voters die of the coronavirus.

Published

A Marshall University professor has been suspended for saying in a video rant that she hopes Trump’s voters die of the coronavirus before the Nov. 3 General Election.

Professor Jennifer Mosher, who is reportedly a College of Science assistant professor at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, went on a rant in a video that went viral.

During an e-learning session on the biology of the Wuhan virus, Mosher’s dander was raised by people who refuse to wear masks during this era of coronavirus “pandemic.”

“I think yesterday he held one inside, no one wore a mask. And I’ve become the type of person where I hope they all get it and die,” she said.

“I’m sorry but I am so frustrated, and I don’t know what else to do. I, you can’t argue with and you can’t talk sense into them. I said to somebody yesterday, I hope they all die before the election. That’s the only, that’s the only saving hope I have right now,” Mosher added.

“Definitely bootlickers,” she exclaimed.

“Anyhow, OK, I’m gonna stop talking politics,” Mosher suddenly said, “because I really should not be talking politics in here.”

She should have started from that last sentiment! Because now she has been suspended for her ignorant rant.

The university released a statement on Friday saying Mosher was removed from her classroom duties while they investigate the matter.

“Marshall University this morning announced it is aware of an overtly political statement made by a faculty member in a recent virtual classroom session and widely circulated on social media,” read the statement.

“The university does not support or condone the use of any of its educational platforms to belittle people or wish harm on those who hold differing political views,” the statement continued. “The professor was removed from the classroom yesterday and is on administrative leave, pending an investigation.”

Let’s hope she is fired and never teaches again.

Federal Judge Rules that Pennsylvania Gov. Wolf’s Coronavirus Policies are Unconstitutional

Published

on

A federal judge has dealt Pennsylvania Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf a blow by ruling that his coronavirus policies are unconstitutional.

In his 66-page decision, U.S. District Judge William S. Stickman IV said that Wolf’s policies violated the First Amendment right to freedom of religion, as well as the 14th Amendment.

Thomas W. King III, who represented the plaintiffs in the case, was thrilled by the win. “It’s a complete and total victory for the counties, the businesses and the representatives,” King said, adding, “You can’t order the entire population of Pennsylvania to stay at home.”

President Trump also celebrated the ruling with a tweet reading, “Congratulations Pennsylvania. Now we await the decision on the Rigged Ballot Scam, which is so bad for our Country!”

A spokesperson for the left-wing gov. said that they were disappointed in the decision.

Per TribLive:

The plaintiffs in the case included seven businesses and their owners, U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Butler, state Reps. Daryl Metcalfe, Marci Mustello and Tim Bonner, as well as Butler, Fayette, Greene and Washington counties. The businesses included three hair salons, an appliance store, a farm and two drive-in theaters.

The complaint was filed May 7, arguing that the governor’s orders — limiting the size of gatherings, the stay-at-home order and the closure of non-life-sustaining businesses — were unconstitutional.

The judge did not ascribe any ill-will on behalf of the gov., saying that he “believes that defendants undertook their actions in a well-intentioned effort to protect Pennsylvanians from the virus. However, good intentions toward a laudable end are not alone enough to uphold governmental action against a constitutional challenge.”

Judge Stickman added that “even a vigilant public may let down its guard over its constitutional liberties only to find that liberties, once relinquished, are hard to recoup and that restrictions — while expedient in the face of an emergency situation — may persist long after immediate danger has passed.”

“There is no question that this country has faced, and will face, emergencies of every sort,” Stickman added. “But the solution to a national crisis can never be permitted to supersede the commitment to individual liberty that stands as the foundation of the American experiment.”

Stickman added that the COVID crisis is certainly unprecedented.

“Never before has the government taken a direct action which shuttered so many businesses and sidelined so many employees and rendered their ability to operate, and to work, solely dependent on government discretion,” he said.

“A total shutdown of a business with no end-date and the specter of additional, future shutdowns can cause critical damage to a business’s ability to survive, to an employee’s ability to support him/herself, and adds a government-induced cloud of uncertainty to the usual unpredictability of nature and life,” the judge wrote.

Well, looks like a judge making sense at last.
