    We just passed the fourth anniversary of “15 Days To Slow the Spread,” the start of the COVID lockdowns that did damage from which we still haven’t recovered. ... Anthony Fauci, Nancy Pelosi and Bill de Blasio were telling us not to worry, to take cruises and go visit Chinatown ... They reversed course like a week later. ... Neither the lockdowns nor the masking requirements did any good, though they caused a lot of trauma, inconvenience and colossal economic destruction. ... Then there were the deaths caused by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s program of moving still-contagious COVID patients into old-folks’...

    A federal appeals court has agreed with a lower court that the Biden administration likely can be proven to have pressured Big Tech to censor Americans whose views did not align with the Democrat talking points. And the result is that leftists en masse are trying to deny it, a sentiment expressed by the White House, which stated, “This administration has promoted responsible actions to protect public health, safety, and security when confronted by challenges like a deadly pandemic and foreign attacks on our elections. Our consistent view remains that social media platforms have a critical responsibility to take account...

    An Albertan court ruled on Tuesday that lockdown orders enacted in response to Covid were invalid. The ruling in Ingram v. Alberta will likely force prosecutors to withdraw charges against individuals, churches, and other organizations in several other standing cases. Justice Barbara Romaine ruled in favor of the applicants because the Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) delegated her decisions to the cabinet, which she was not authorized to do under Canadian law. The CMOH herself testified at trial that she provided only advice and recommendations to politicians but did not make the decisions herself. Justice Romaine did conclude that...

    As the UK Covid inquiry continues, we must not forget lockdowns failed and destroyed the lives of millions.. America stands for freedom, yet we had one of the most acquiescent populations in the world during the pandemic. There were protests about the lockdowns, if you remember, in the UK, in Spain, in Italy, in France, in Germany and in the Netherlands. Generally speaking in America there was a shocking lack of pushback. America is the beacon of freedom in the world and if America does not push for freedom, it’s over; Not just in the US, it’s over everywhere. The...

    Center Square ^ | 6/5/23 | Andrew Hensel
    High property taxes, the state tax on gasoline and Gov. J.B. Pritzker's handling of COVID-19 are all factors in the state's lack of job growth, according to an analyst. A report by Wirepoints looks at Illinois' overall economic performance since Pritzker took office in 2019. The report shows 70,000 fewer jobs in that time frame and that its real GDP growth was 3.2% from 2019 to 2022, which ranked 10th worse in the country. Wirepoints President Ted Dabrowski told The Center Square that many factors have contributed to the lack of growth in jobs. "We will never have the most...

    There is a reason why you know who Randi Weingarten, the leader of the second-largest teachers union in the country, is. She’s the one who threatened to strike if schools did not close in 2020. She is the one who said that school closures were not that big of a deal because “kids are resilient." She is the one who influenced the CDC to change its COVID-19 guidelines using almost her exact language. She is the one who introduced a campaign to bring Ibram X. Kendi’s simplistic ideas on race into “every classroom.” In other words, you know who Randi...

    President Biden on Friday said Republicans in Congress are threatening to hurt the U.S. economy, while hailing the March jobs report that showed the U.S. economy added 236,000 jobs. “Extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress, on the other hand, are threatening to wreak havoc on our economy with debt limit brinkmanship,” Biden said in a statement. He argued that Republicans’ “extreme agenda would send the unprecedented investments we’ve made here in America – along with the jobs that come with it – overseas. And it’s all to pay for even more giveaways to the wealthiest Americans and largest corporations.” The unemployment...

    Whatever the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports today about job growth and the unemployment rate, you can bet that President Joe Biden will use it as an opportunity to brag about his superb handling of the economy. The one thing Biden is good at is lying with statistics. Biden will probably claim that he’s overseen a record number of new jobs – the most in history. The press will dutifully regurgitate White House talking points. But the numbers getting bandied about these days about job growth and unemployment are wildly misleading because they ignore important bits of context. Such as:...

    During the 2020 “pandemic,” America learned a new concept: “essential workers.” Governments took it upon themselves to decide who was important, or at least, important enough to remain at work while other businesses were being unconstitutionally shuttered for days, for weeks, for months, and in far too many cases, forever. What we soon learned – those for whom it wasn’t obvious from the start, that is – was that in fact, all jobs are essential. Our economy is the most complex of symbiotic relationships, as all the cogs of our economic engine work together for the greater good. In 2020,...

    n the recent deposition of Anthony Fauci in Missouri v. Biden, a civil lawsuit against the Biden administration over alleged free speech violations, Fauci acknowledged that Dr. Clifford Lane, clinical director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who was appointed to the February 2020 World Health Organization-China Joint Mission team, told Fauci that he was “impressed” with China’s successful management of the Covid outbreak. In doing so, Lane conveyed to Fauci his belief that “extreme social distancing policies” were essential to curtailing the spread of disease. During his deposition, Fauci stated that he had “every reason to...

    Chinese authorities on Sunday violently dispersed a peaceful protest by hundreds of depositors, who sought in vain to demand their life savings back from banks that have run into a deepening cash crisis. Four rural banks in China's central Henan province have frozen millions of dollars worth of deposits, threatening the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of customers in an economy already battered by draconian Covid lockdowns. Anguished depositors have staged several demonstrations in the city of Zhengzhou, the provincial capital of Henan, over the past two months, but their demands have invariably fallen on deaf ears. On Sunday, more...

    To them, apparently, only rich people should have school choice.. School choice has become a hot-button issue after the COVID-19 lockdowns shined a light on the scope of the government’s authority and gave parents a window into public school curricula. Many private schools stayed open while public school systems across the country closed in-person learning for entire semesters, even years, and remote learning lifted the veil on what public school kids are actually learning – and not learning. Private schools across the country reported seeing a significant uptick in enrollment over the past two years, while public school enrollment declined...

    All he had to do was end the COVID-19 lockdowns and let the economy recover on its own. Instead, President Joe Biden spent trillions trying to “transform” the country, and now, everyone, especially the nation's poorest, is paying the price for his hubris. The Labor Department reported Friday that inflation rose to 8.6% in the 12 months ending in May, its highest level in more than 40 years. Virtually no sector of the economy was left untouched. Gas is up 48.7% from a year ago, electricity 12%, groceries 11.9%, and rent 5.9%. These price increases are not, as White House...

    Known as the ‘Movement of Declaration of Independence in China,’ the online campaign is an effort to cripple communist rule in China by exposing Chinese citizens to the founding principles of the United States.Since its establishment in 1949, the People’s Republic of China has inflicted tremendous suffering upon the Chinese people. Whether it was the policies of Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward (1958-1962) that resulted in the deaths of 45 million people or the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989, China’s communist government has been at the forefront of squashing the natural rights of its people for decades. In the name...
