Why Lockdowns Don’t Work and Damage the Most Weak




In a December 9, 2020, Twitter thread,1 Michael P. Senger, an lawyer and writer of the September 2020 article,2 “China’s World Lockdown Propaganda Marketing campaign,” reviewed the largely hidden impacts of worldwide lockdowns. Ivor Cummins’ video above additionally opinions knowledge exhibiting simply how “vastly ineffective” lockdowns have been.

As one would count on, shutting down companies for prolonged durations of time results in companies going underneath for impaired money stream from lack of income. Again in August 2020, Bloomberg reported3 that extra than half of all small enterprise house owners feared their companies wouldn’t survive. They had been proper.

In response to a September 2020 financial influence report4 by Yelp, 163,735 U.S. companies had closed their doorways as of August 31, 2020, and of these, 60% — a complete of 97,966 companies — had been everlasting closures.5 As famous by Senger:6

“That ’leaders’ the world over reworked into tyrants, believing that they had a proper to bankrupt their topics, is the core evil of lockdown.”

The Best Wealth Switch in Historical past

How does shutting small companies however permitting huge field shops to remain open defend public well being? There’s actually no rhyme or purpose for such a resolution, apart from to shift wealth away from small, non-public enterprise house owners to multinational companies.

Whereas working-class People have been pressured to file for unemployment by the tens of thousands and thousands, the highest 5 richest folks within the U.S. elevated their wealth by 26% between March 18 and June 17, 2020.7 Because the starting of the pandemic, the collective wealth of 651 billionaires within the U.S. rose by greater than 36% ($1 trillion).8 The property of those 651 billionaires is now practically double that of the mixed wealth of the least rich 165 million People.

As famous by Frank Clemente, government director of People for Tax Equity, “By no means earlier than has America seen such an accumulation of wealth in so few fingers.”9

Removed from being the good equalizer, COVID-19 is the best wealth switch scheme within the historical past of the world. Certainly, chances are you’ll as properly name it what it’s: grand-scale asset theft from the poor and center class. A December 14, 2020, article10 in The Defender opinions who has benefited from pandemic measures probably the most, from the finance and tech industries to the pharmaceutical and military-intelligence sectors.

Minority-Owned Companies Have Taken Largest Hit

In response to an August 10, 2020, article11 by Forbes, pandemic measures had eradicated practically half of all Black-owned small companies within the U.S. by the tip of April 2020. It cites knowledge from a New York Fed report,12 which discovered that “Black-owned companies had been greater than twice as more likely to shutter as their white counterparts.”

Whereas nationally consultant knowledge on small companies confirmed energetic enterprise possession dropped 22% between February and April 2020, the variety of companies owned by Blacks dropped by 41%. The decline in Latin-owned companies was 32%; Asian-owned 26%; and White-owned 17%. In response to Forbes:13

“On the identical time, Black-owned companies, already smarting from a Nice Recession that harm them badly, already entered the disaster with ‘weaker money positions, weaker financial institution relationships, and preexisting funding gaps.’ ‘Even the healthiest Black companies had been financially deprived on the onset of COVID-19,’ stated the report.”

Meals Insecurity at Staggering Ranges

Mere weeks into the pandemic, People had been lining up at meals banks. An April 12, 2020, article14 in The New York Instances confirmed miles-long traces in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Miami, Florida and elsewhere:

“In many cities, traces exterior meals pantries have change into obvious symbols of monetary precarity, exhibiting how shortly the pandemic has devastated working folks’s funds.

In San Antonio, 10,000 households started arriving earlier than daybreak on Thursday at a now-shuttered swap meet corridor to obtain packing containers of meals. Usually, 200 to 400 households would possibly present up throughout a traditional meals distribution.

‘It’s a wave of want,’ stated Eric Cooper, president of the San Antonio Meals Financial institution. ‘They had been all let go. There’s no financial savings. There’s no slack of their family finances. The cash’s run out. It simply reveals how determined persons are.’”

The scenario is far the identical in different international locations. An April 10, 2020, report15 by the Monetary Instances cited survey outcomes exhibiting an estimated 3 million Britons had gone with out meals sooner or later within the earlier three weeks. An estimated 1 million folks had by then already misplaced all sources of earnings.

Anna Taylor, government director for the Meals Basis within the U.Ok., instructed the Monetary Instances there’s a “meals poverty downside that has not been handled” that’s now turning into manifestly obvious — and that was mere weeks into the pandemic. We’re now 9 months down the road, and governments all over the world are once more calling for lockdowns over the winter holidays.

Psychological Well being Slides as Despair Grows

That forcing folks into poverty may have a detrimental impact on their psychological well being is additionally not shocking. A Canadian survey16 in early October 2020 discovered 22% of Canadians skilled excessive anxiousness ranges — 4 instances greater than the prepandemic charge — and 13% reported extreme melancholy.

Within the U.S., an August 2020 survey17,18 by the American Psychological Affiliation discovered Gen-Z’ers are among the many hardest hit on this regard, with younger adults aged 18 to 23 reporting the highest ranges of stress and melancholy.

Greater than 7 out of 10 on this age group reported signs of melancholy within the two weeks earlier than the survey. Amongst teenagers aged 13 to 17, 51% stated the pandemic makes it inconceivable to plan for the long run. Sixty-seven p.c of college-aged respondents echoed this concern.

With despair comes drug-related issues, and in response to the American Medical Affiliation, the drug overdose epidemic has considerably worsened and change into extra sophisticated this yr. “Greater than 40 states have reported will increase in opioid-related mortality in addition to ongoing considerations for these with a psychological sickness or substance use dysfunction,” the AMA reported in an Challenge Transient19 up to date December 9, 2020.

A listing of nationwide information included within the AMA’s transient20 embrace reviews of will increase in overdose-related cardiac arrests, surges in road fentanyl resulting in deaths within the 1000’s and a “dramatic improve” in illicit opioid fatalities. Spikes and document numbers of overdose deaths have been reported in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Florida and plenty of different states.

Younger Adults Dying in Larger Than Regular Numbers

That pandemic measures are doing extra hurt than good may also be seen in Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention knowledge21,22 exhibiting that, in comparison with earlier years, extra deaths amongst 25- to 44-year-olds has elevated by a outstanding 26.5%, regardless that this age group accounts for fewer than 3% of COVID-19-related deaths.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data

To place it bluntly, in our misguided efforts to stop the aged and immune compromised from dying from COVID-19, we’re sacrificing people who find themselves within the prime of their lives. As famous by Senger:23

“Per CDC, regardless of mass PCR testing and disproportionate false positives, at the very least 100,947 extra deaths in 2020 weren’t even linked to COVID-19 AT ALL. In different phrases, over 100,000 People had been murdered this yr by their OWN GOVERNMENT.”

Lockdowns Dramatically Enhance Home Abuse

Rising despair can also be mirrored in statistics exhibiting dramatic will increase in home abuse, rape, baby intercourse abuse and suicides. By July 2020, Eire reported a 98% improve in folks in search of counseling for rape and baby intercourse abuse.24

Knowledge from the British group Girls’s Support confirmed 61% of home abuse victims reported abuse had worsened through the lockdown.25 The variety of ladies killed by their home companions additionally doubled through the first three weeks of lockdowns within the U.Ok.26

Within the U.S., knowledge27 from a Massachusetts hospital revealed a dramatic soar in sufferers in search of emergency care after being battered by their home associate within the 9 weeks between March 11 and Could 3, 2020, when the state had ordered faculties closed.

Throughout this time, 26 sufferers had been handled for home abuse accidents that included strangulation, stabbing, burns and gunshot wounds. That’s only one shy of the quantity of instances seen in the identical time interval throughout 2018 and 2019 mixed. In different phrases, home abuse instances had been practically double the annual norm for that hospital.

In early April 2020, United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres warned28 of a “horrifying” surge in international home abuse linked to pandemic lockdowns as calls to helplines in some international locations had by then already doubled.29 The variety of folks wanting into divorce within the U.S. was additionally 34% greater in March by way of June 2020 in comparison with the identical timeframe in 2019.30

Kids Delivered to Undergo in Numerous Methods

Youngster abuse, in the meantime, is much less more likely to be detected and reported due to digital education. As famous by Human Rights Watch:31

“Extra than 1.5 billion college students are out of faculty. Widespread job and earnings loss and financial insecurity amongst households are more likely to improve charges of kid labor, sexual exploitation, teenage being pregnant, and baby marriage.

Stresses on households, notably these residing underneath quarantines and lockdowns, are rising the incidence of home violence … ‘The dangers posed by the COVID-19 disaster to youngsters are huge,’ stated Jo Becker, youngsters’s rights advocacy director at Human Rights Watch …

Youngster abuse is much less more likely to be detected through the COVID-19 disaster, as baby safety businesses have decreased monitoring to keep away from spreading the virus, and academics are much less in a position to detect indicators of unwell therapy with faculties closed.”

There are indicators of rising baby abuse although, together with a British examine32 that discovered a stunning 1,493% rise within the incidence of abusive head trauma amongst youngsters through the first month of the lockdown, in comparison with the identical time interval within the earlier three years.

Kids are additionally at risk of falling behind socially and developmentally, even when they’re not uncovered to direct abuse. In November 2020, The Guardian reported that many youngsters are regressing mentally and bodily because of the lockdowns.33

The Washington Put up reported34 scholastic achievement gaps have widened within the U.S. and early literacy amongst kindergarteners has seen a pointy decline this yr.

In accordance to The Economist,35 American youngsters over the age of 10 minimize bodily exercise by half through the lockdown, spending most of their time taking part in video video games and consuming junk meals. Certainly, closing parks and seashores proper together with small companies and faculties was undoubtedly among the many most ignorant and damaging pandemic measures of all.

Suicide Epidemic

Stopping wholesome folks from working and upending everybody’s lives has additionally (as anticipated) resulted in an enormous rise in suicide, and irregular spikes grew to become obvious inside weeks of the preliminary lockdowns.

As famous by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in “How the Government Uses Fear to Control,” analysis from the Nineteen Eighties discovered that for each 1-point rise in unemployment there have been 37,000 extra deaths, 4,000 extra imprisonments and three,300 extra admissions into psychological establishments. Kennedy additionally cites current knowledge from a hospital in San Francisco that said they noticed one yr’s-worth of suicides in a single month, a 1,200% improve.

In September 2020, Prepare dinner Kids’s Hospital in Fort Value, Texas, admitted a document variety of 37 pediatric sufferers who had tried to commit suicide. Dr. Kia Carter, medical director of Psychiatry at Prepare dinner Kids’s instructed CBS:36

“September of 2020 has been the best month ever that we have seen suicidal sufferers admitted to our medical heart … Suicide has change into the second main explanation for loss of life for teenagers and adolescents within the final yr, versus two years in the past when it was the third main explanation for loss of life.”

In Japan — which didn’t even implement lockdowns — authorities statistics reveal extra folks died from suicide within the month of October than have died from COVID-19 all yr.37 Whereas solely 2,087 Japanese had died from COVID-19 as of November 27, 2020, the suicide toll in October alone was 2,153. Girls make up the lion’s share of suicides, and hotlines are additionally reporting that ladies are confessing ideas of killing their youngsters out of sheer desperation.

Creating World Fares Even Worse

As horrible as all of those statistics are, they don’t even start to check to the tragedies happening in creating nations. In India, thousands and thousands of migrant employees had been stranded early on within the pandemic with out a strategy to make a residing and unable to depart the cities on account of lockdown orders.38

Meals traces stretched for miles in South Africa on the finish of April 202039 and in Saudi Arabia, “a whole lot if not 1000’s” of African migrants — largely Ethiopian males — have been left to die from lack of meals and water in COVID-19 detention facilities after a moratorium on deportation was issued in April, in response to an August 30, 2020, report by The Telegraph.40

The United Nations estimates pandemic responses have “pushed an extra 150 million youngsters into multidimensional poverty — disadvantaged of training, well being, housing, diet, sanitation or water,”41 and on the finish of April 2020 warned the world was going through “famine of biblical proportions, with solely a restricted period of time to behave earlier than hunger claims a whole lot of thousands and thousands of lives.”42

“All this for a virus that prompted no above-average mortality in international locations with out lockdowns — and which WHO estimates already contaminated 10% of individuals worldwide by October. In different phrases, all for completely nothing,” Senger writes.43

Pandemics Spotlight Pre-Current Well being Inequalities

Certainly, an ever-growing variety of medical doctors, lecturers and scientists at the moment are questioning the validity of utilizing PCR assessments to diagnose “instances,” the usefulness of face masks, the questionable classification of COVID-19 deaths, and the suppression of scientifically verified strategies of prevention and therapy, in addition to the security and usefulness of COVID-19 vaccines.

There are clear issues in all of those areas, but questions and logical considering have been, and proceed to be, met with harsh resistance and denial. These main the cost in phrases of pandemic responses haven’t been shy about their censoring of counter-narratives, nearly with out exception.

In relation to the illness itself, we now know sure comorbidities considerably increase your threat of problems and deaths. Among the many prime ones are weight problems, insulin resistance and vitamin D deficiency.

Whereas these circumstances are exceptionally frequent general, they’re notably prevalent in Black and indigenous communities, and when mixed with insufficient entry to well being care, these teams additionally find yourself being disproportionally affected by COVID-19.44

COVID-19 Is a Class Warfare

Whereas the media and political and financial establishments declare the pandemic narrative is predicated on scientific consensus, this clearly isn’t the case. There’s no proof supporting common masks use, for instance, and there’s even much less scientific assist for lockdowns — a method based mostly on a highschool mission that gained third place.45

James Corbett of the Corbett Report discusses this stunning revelation within the video above. Now, as many small companies are failing due to months-long shutdowns and employment alternatives look bleak, world leaders are instantly becoming a member of the World Financial Discussion board in calling for a Great Reset of the economic system.46

That is hardly a random coincidence. This plan, which has been within the works for many years, will additional empower and enrich rich, unelected powerbrokers whereas enslaving and impoverishing everybody else. The truth that the pandemic has been used to shift wealth from the poor and center class to the ultra-wealthy is evident for anybody to see at this level. As famous by IPS Information:47

“The COVID pandemic has not been the ‘Nice Equalizer’ as urged by the likes of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and members of the World Financial Discussion board. Somewhat, it has exacerbated present inequalities alongside gender, race and financial class divides the world over.48

The World Restructuring

At this level, it needs to be apparent for anybody paying consideration that the pandemic is being extended and exaggerated for a purpose, and it’s not as a result of there’s concern for all times. Fairly the opposite.

It’s a ploy to fairly actually enslave the worldwide inhabitants inside a digital surveillance system49 — a system so unnatural and inhumane that no rational inhabitants would ever voluntarily go down that street.

“The ‘Nice Reset’ seeks to … develop company management of pure sources and state surveillance of people,” IPS Information writes.50 “Within the post-pandemic ‘Nice Reset,’ there wouldn’t be a lot life left exterior the technological-corporate nexus dominated by monolithic agribusiness, pharmaceutical, communication, protection and different inter-connected companies, and the governments and media serving them.

The proponents of the ‘Nice Reset’51 envisage a Courageous New World the place, ‘You’ll personal nothing. And you may be glad. No matter you need, you will lease, and it will likely be delivered by drones.’

However it is extra possible that this elite-led revolution will make the overwhelming majority of humanity a powerless appendage of know-how with little consciousness and that means in their lives.”

It also needs to be clear that the majority if not all pandemic restrictions to freedom are supposed to change into everlasting. In different phrases, these previous 9 months have been a preview of the world the technocratic elite desires to implement as a part of the brand new social and financial order. 

If that is the first time you’re listening to any of this, be sure you assessment “Who Pressed the Great Reset Button?” “The Pressing Dangers of Technocracy,” “The Global Takeover Is Underway” and “Coronavirus Fraud Scandal — The Biggest Fight Has Just Begun.” 

Now’s the Time to Struggle Again

It’s necessary to know that now’s the time to battle again: to withstand any and all unconstitutional edicts. As soon as the “new world order” is in place, you’ll no longer have the ability to do a factor about it.

Your life — your well being, instructional and work alternatives, your funds and your very id — can be so meshed with the automated technological infrastructure that any try to interrupt free will end in you being locked out or erased from the system, leaving you with no skill to study, work, journey or interact in commerce. 

It sounds far-fetched, I do know, however whenever you observe the technocratic plan to its inevitable finish, that’s principally what you find yourself with. The warning indicators are throughout us, if we’re keen to see them for what they really are. The one query now’s whether or not sufficient persons are keen to withstand it to make a distinction.

Most necessary of all is the necessity to launch the concern. It’s a fearful public that enables the technocratic elite to dictate the long run and rip away our private freedoms. It’s concern that enables tyranny to flourish. Actually take a look at the information, so you may see for your self that panic is unwarranted, and that the so-called “options” to the pandemic are in truth a path of complete destruction.

This destruction — each ethical and financial — is mandatory for the Nice Reset to happen. The technocratic elite want every part and everybody to collapse in an effort to justify the implementation of their new system. With out this desperation, nobody would conform to what they’ve deliberate.

For sensible methods on how one can reply in mild of all of the tyrannical interventions which were imposed on us, try James Corbett’s interview with Howard Lichtman beneath. I additionally suggest studying “Constitutional Sheriffs Are the Difference Between Freedom and Tyranny.”

Final however not least, now can also be the time to take management of your individual well being. Make it some extent to essentially take care of your self. Bear in mind, insulin resistance, weight problems and vitamin D deficiency prime the listing of comorbidities that considerably increase your threat problems and loss of life from COVID-19.

These are additionally underlying components in a bunch of different persistent illnesses, together with psychological well being issues, so by addressing them, you’ll enhance your possibilities of getting by way of this difficult time along with your well being and sanity intact. Yow will discover tons of details about learn how to reverse all of those points by looking my article archives.
