CORONAVIRUS PANIC LEADS TO LACK OF PERSPECTIVE

If you live in a state that has been locked down. Understand that this is a taste of what socialist central planning would be like under Bernie, who is an avowed socialist, or Biden, who wants the same policies but won’t call himself a socialist.

Number Of Global Deaths By Cause – Draconian Muscle Flexing And A Lack Of Perspective, by Cap Allon, at electroverse.net.  To put Coronavirus in perspective,  look at the chart which shows the causes of yearly deaths.

The Scientist Whose Doomsday Pandemic Model Predicted Armageddon Just Walked Back The Apocalyptic Predictions, by Madeline Osburn, at thefederalist.com.  We should be skeptical of computer modeling by scientific “experts”.

Inaccurate Virus Models Are Panicking Officials Into Ill-Advised Lockdowns, by Madeline Osburn, at thefederalist.com. The inaccurate modeling by the scientist talked about in the above article, was used by politicians and bureaucrats to make their decision about the virus.

Media Peddle Bogus Wuhan Virus Stats To Bash America, by Mollie Hemingway, at thefederalist.com.  This is just journalists using data to fit their leftist world view.

The Social Justice Cult Is Falling Apart As The World Faces A Real Crisis, by Libby Emmons ans Barrett Wilson, at thepostmellennial.com.    Excerpt from the article:

“The social justice set has been shrieking about “lives being at risk” for almost a decade. But now that we’re faced with actual devastation to the human way of life, it becomes clear that it was always only rhetoric. Social justice is the culture that cried wolf.”

Is there Wasteful Spending In The Coronavirus Stimulus Bill? (Spoiler Alert: Bigly!), at zerohedge.com. There is never a shortage of grifters showing up when there is a pile of tax payer money to be passed out by congress.

Air Pollution In China Drops During Coronavirus Slowdown. Lauren Sommer, at npr.org.  Are the global warming cultists rooting for the Coronavirus. They believe man is a scourge to the planet. So they have to be happy with the planet getting a measure of revenge. They also have to be happy that the pollution level in China is lower since the outbreak because people are being shuttered in place.

 

WHAT HAPPENED WHILE OUR ATTENTION HAS BEEN OCCUPIED

Burr Responds – Claims He Sold Stocks Based On ‘News Reports’, at zerohedge.com.  My congressman was Speaker of the House John Boehner. Some years ago he was on a local radio show talking about congressmen and insider trading. He said it wasn’t a problem because congress has rules against insider trading. I was so pissed, I called his office and I asked his aide: “if you have a law that isn’t enforced, do you really have a law”?

Since many congressman insider trade because they know that it is “wink wink nod nod” okay. Will the congressional investigators have an incentive to find the truth? Congress should not be investigating their own members.

A Disgusted Nikki Haley Quits Boeing’s Board In Protest Over Bailout Demand, at zerohedge.com.  This is not a satirical headline.

FISA: Senate Passes Measure Extending Surveillance Powers, Abuses Not Addressed, at saracarter.com.  This is an example of a temporary government policy that was implemented after a the 9/11 crisis that became permanent. The FISA court has trampled all over American citizens constitutional rights. The President should veto this. Especially since FISA was used against him by the FBI.

California Throws Book At Reporter Who Exposed Baby Body Trafficking, by Thomas Brejcha, at thefederalist.com. I guess being Pro-Life is against the law.

Another Obama Solar Company Burns Out – DC Solar Owners Plead Guilty To Largest Ponzi Scheme In Eastern California History, by Joe Hoft, at thegatewaypundit.com.    This is an example of grifters getting in line to steal tax payer dollars. Check out some other Green energy companies that grifted tax dollars who are either bankrupt or faltering, in this post, Government Investment? or Government Waste?
