Expert: “More People are Dying from the Lockdown than from the China Virus”
Dr. Tom Barrett
The U.S. Government, closely followed by most State Governments, has put our economy in what I call a “Medically Induced Coma.” Now many County and City Governments are prolonging the agony unnecessarily, and even non-governmental entities such as housing developments and stores like Costco are assuming dictatorial powers that are not helping, but rather making the situation worse.
The economic coma is different from a medical coma in many ways, although the economic coma is killing tens of thousands. (See my article “The Operation was Successful, but the Patient Died.”).
Dr. Scott Atlas, a Stanford University Epidemiologist and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution (along with thousands of his colleagues nationwide) believes the lockdown is killing as many people as the virus itself because many people with serious conditions unrelated to the virus have been afraid to go to their doctors, or because their doctors refuse to see them.

A judge in Illinois expressed in a very recent judgment some of the thoughts and feelings that are shared by many.
“Since the inception of this insanity, the following regulations, rules or consequences have occurred: I won't get COVID if I get an abortion, but I will get COVID if I get a colonoscopy. Selling pot is essential, but selling goods and services at a family-owned business is not. Pot wasn't even legal and pot dispensaries didn't even exist in this state until five months ago and, in that five months, they have become essential, but a family-owned business in existence for five generations is not."
"Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked, Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don't get ruled." Read more...
Like most people, when things get intense, I get emotional. Then I get frustrated, angry, or fearful, lose perspective, and get darn right obnoxious! Sometimes, little things that I want, become big things I can't get to when I want them. As my intensity increases, my patience decreases. Then the big things I can't seem to get to turn into huge things that rob me of strength and joy. I become entangled, like Brer Rabbit, in tar babies of my own making. Read more...
Catastrophe for America is a Golden Opportunity for Democrats
America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented. The complete shutdown of our national economy is truly historic. Not since World War II have Americans experienced such widespread anxiety, unrest, and economic hardship. It’s hard to imagine how anyone can find anything to cheer about, sifting through the debris field of 90,000 U.S. deaths, millions of lost jobs, and utter economic devastation.
Democrats, though, have found a way to see the bright side of things. After nearly three years of bitterness and frustration over the 2016 election, their hope has been restored. It’s not because of some spiritual awakening or newfound optimism. Relying on sheer cunning and shrewd planning, they’ve created a golden opportunity. Like political alchemists, they’ve devised a way to extract gold from the pain and suffering of fellow Americans. Read more...
Just when Americans are beginning to see a sliver of light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel – just as some businesses are coming back online and the authoritarian Governors can see a bit of power and control slipping away, an old stalwart crisis is waiting in the wings. But there’s a refreshing new take on this aging crisis. I’m talking about one of the left’s go-to crises.
No, it’s not racism. It’s not social justice. It’s not gender inequality, or income inequality. Sorry – I forgot how many go-to crises the left has.
Yes, I’m talking about Climate Change. Read more...
A “conservative” columnist recently called for Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx to be tried as criminals and imprisoned. This is crazy. American scientists and doctors are not the enemy. China is. And America can respond to this attack of the coronavirus by confiscating Chinese financial assets and property. Much of it is in California. It’s time for action. Read more...
The people must guard against government overreach and, if necessary, defy any decrees they deem a threat.
Edmond Burke said “People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the laws; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.”
The events of the past several months have transformed America. It seems the Coronavirus has had a tremendous impact, affecting not only the physical well being and mortality of her people, but also their mental and emotional state of mind and stability, and of course, there’s the economy.

It hates Faith and Independence.
Throughout the course of the Chinese Coronavirus COVID-19 we have seen a raft of governors who believe they are the dictator-in-chief of their states. Where they believe their word is the law and should not be questioned, if questioned, the offending people should be crushed. Orders came dictating how many people can be on a tennis court, or whether you’re allowed to plant a garden. You can walk on the wet sand on the beach, but you can’t walk on the dry sand.

When Republicans failed to deliver for the American people and lost their majority in the United States House of Representatives in 2018, a true poison was unleashed on the nation. For a second time, Nancy Pelosi became U.S. Speaker of the House and in her latest stint in this position she has been incredibly damaging to this country. Read more...
