Absolutely NO shutdown agenda.

Unh uhh.
[President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko] says he was offered a World Bank loan if he did a COVID lockdown.[1]
This is lockdown garbage is a sick obsession. It is CLEAR that mitigating the effect of the COVID-19 virus is NOT the ONLY consideration. Saving countless national economies, jobs, and small businesses is now THE MAJOR task facing world governments. At this point, it's anything but clear that we can avoid economic disaster given all the other reckless, greasy spending, debt, monetary, and cronyism excesses. But, CLEARLY, enormous economic and social harm IS being engineered by this sick focus on lockdown, lockdown, lockdown.

A little perspective from the CDC leading causes of death for 2017 with my addition of today's U.S. COVID-19 deaths:

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • COVID-19: 173,798
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
  • Diabetes: 83,564
  • Influenza and pneumonia: 55,672
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,633
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173

Even if I divide the COVID-19 number above by 8 and multiply by 12 the result is 260,697 COVID-19 deaths, still roughly half of the death tolls for cancer and heart disease. Each year.

CLEARLY people without other serious health problems, not in nursing homes, and not elderly have a much reduced, if not nonexistent, risk of serious consequences from infection. And I say this as a man well into his 70s with, fortunately, no co-morbidities other than a serious alcohol problem. I can quit any time. I'm not eager to depart this vale of tears right now but still I don't expect there to be a vastly distorted official reaction to something that ISN'T the Spanish Flu.

Okay. CLEARLY hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin have considerable value in treating the virus infection in its early stages, just as it is equally clear that there is an underhanded, dishonest effort to demonize this treatment, not least by publishing critical studies that involve abnormally high doses that no one has recommended for the virus.

And, just as CLEAR, is the full-court press to censor and deplatform views not in line with the scum-sucking establishment lunatics.

And don't forget Angelo Codevilla's take on the elite agenda recorded for prosperity on the Intergalactic Source of Truth, one of your finer blogs.
