LOCKDOWN LUNACY 2.0: Second wave? Not even close.

J.B. Handley Blog: Why did politicians ever lockdown society in the first place? Can we all agree that the stated purpose was to “flatten the curve” so our hospital system could handle the inevitable COVID-19 patients who needed care? At that point, at least, back in early March, people were behaving rationally. They accepted that you can’t eradicate a virus, so let’s postpone things enough to handle it. The fact is, we have done that, and so much more. The headlines are filled with dire warnings of a “second wave” and trigger-happy Governors are rolling back regulations to try to stem the tide of new cases. But, is any of it actually true and should we all be worried? No, it’s not a second wave. The COVID-19 virus is on its final legs, and while I have filled this post with graphs to prove everything I just said, this is really the only graph you need to see, it’s the CDC’s data, over time, of deaths from COVID-19 here in the U.S., and the trend line is unmistakable:

If virologists were driving policy about COVID-19 rather than public health officials, we’d all be Sweden right now, which means life would effectively be back to normal. The only thing our lockdowns have done at this point is prolong the agony a little bit, and encouraged Governors to make up more useless rules. Sweden’s health minister understood that the only chance to beat COVID-19 was to get the Swedish population to a Herd Immunity Threshold against COVID-19, and that’s exactly what they have done, so let me start there.

  1. Welcome to the tyranny of the stupid, over the sheeple – the People’s Democratic Republic of Pennsylvania! 😡

  2. …the push is to force easily frauded mail-in voting at this point for the easy Democrat election steal, and also to implement ‘contact tracing’ so they can quickly find and lock up conservatives on an ‘infection’ pretext, “for your safety”…

    …it’s not about a virus.


  3. Was it really to turn us all into faceless NPCs with no identity? Just expendable wards of the State? That’s what seems to be happening.

  4. The unnecessary actions of Oregon’s carpet munching lesbian governor is proof of the power lust that infects most liberals.

  5. Supernightshade is correct. It never was about a virus.
    Remember before the virus, the Dems were trying to claim the economy wasn’t doing well when everyone could see that it was booming? They had to put a stop to that, and the virus was the perfect excuse.
    Now they’re trying for the mail in ballots because it would be so easy to cheat.
    To the Dems, Covid is the gift that keeps on giving.

  6. The dems just use the virus to get their shitty agenda across the finish line. The same tactic is being used with the George Floyd death. The Marxists and anarchists are not reacting to his death they are just using it. It’s like they already had created the bomb and they just needed a detonator.

  7. If an honest investigation was ever done on this Covid bullshit and we had honest prosecutors and Judges there would likely be hundreds of people from the bureaucracy and both political parties at all levels going to jail. Yes, the Chinese lied and in concert with the CDC and WHO muddied the waters but it should have been clear enough to realize that this was no more dangerous then a bad flu. Even with the lies it should have been common sense to just limit travel and use government resources to protect (as best you can in this sort of society) the most vulnerable of us (seniors, those with underlying health problems made worse by the virus and the very young). Instead a truly evil group conspired to destroy the economy in order to unseat a sitting President. Too bad the MSM is filled with cowards and progressives as the trees outside are filled with Pulitzer Prizes just waiting for a few intrepid reporters. Maybe it’s time to break up all those big communications companies.

  8. Cloward-Piven Strategy
    The Cloward-Piven Strategy was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse initiatives — mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people en masse in an effort to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those agencies to meet.


  9. The U.S. added a record 4.8 million jobs in June when only 3 million was expected. Yeah, expect another manufactured crisis.

  10. At this point, I blame the democrats and never Trumpers far more than the Chinese.

    We’ve been had.



    And tattooed.

  11. I’ve got my doctorate in the healthcare field. I’ve got a background where I have to be able to read and dissect medical research. I read the article last nigh after LCD posted it (thanks LCD) and spent about 3 hours following every link and picking through the article, the data at the link, and anything the link used as a reference. This is solid. We always knew this, but now there is the science to back this up. I live in AZ where we are having spike in cases. The hospitalizations and deaths are going down. People are scared needlessly. This really helps.

  12. Late to the morning party here, but that article is just excellent. Thanks for posting it, MJA. It’s easy enough to read that some of my *cough* relatives need to read it! Pass it on, everyone!

    The progressive left likes the fireworks. It was the conservative right that needed time to find something to hide behind.
