Beware of coronavirus mission creep

Original Article

As leaders prepared the public for what would turn into widespread shutdowns of business and leisure activities, they made it abundantly clear that the point was to “flatten the curve” of growth in coronavirus cases. That is, when it was clear that the virus could not be contained, the strategy shifted to an effort to space out inevitable infections over a longer period, so there were as few cases as possible at the peak. The idea was to prevent the number of cases from exceeding the capacity of the hospital system and thus saving the system from collapse.

It isn't mission creep when it was the mission all along. The communists (disguised as Democrats) have been trying to do something like this for a long time. Now they've found their opportunity and they dont intend to waste it.

Like lemmings, many people will follow any government edict because it is easier than accepting responsibility for their own lives. Like climate change, they believe everything they hear, even without evidence to back it up.

Ha, reminds me of the old Jim Mora "playoffs" rant they used to show between downs. Just substitute "Mission creep?!?!? Mission creep?!?!?"

Those arguing to continue lockdowns unntil a vaccine is available are at best disingenuous or stupid. The lockdowns are already worse than the disease. The longer the lockdowns continue the more devastating the damage done and there may NEVER be a vaccine. HIV has been known for almost 40 years but there is still no vaccine to prevent it or drugs to cure it, only drugs to treat symptoms. So how stupid are these advocates for continued lockdowns? What is their real motive? We already know!

Mission creep? Really? Adding 6.4 trillion to our debt in 6 weeks, not 8 years is "mission creep"? WTI prices closing at NEGATIVE 40 bucks per barrel and now stuck around 11 bucks per barrel because worldwide oil consumption is down 33 percent and there's NO PLACE to store oil, is "mission creep." Twenty six million people who applied for unemployment in the past six weeks (and that's just U-2) bringing U-2 unemployment to 16 percent and real, U-6 unemployment to somewhere above twenty is "mission creep"? The tyranny and one hundred percent unconstitutional actions of state and local governments throughout the nation with no end in sight to their ignoring the Constitution is "mission creep"? I don't want my fellow Dotter from Arkansas to blow a gasket over so much negativity, but what is it called when the consequences for the "mission creep" over reactions come due?

It’s disturbing to see how willingly we’ve given up our freedom and how easy it’s been to manipulate the populace into becoming snitches. Now that the lockdowns are “easing,” some fascists are becoming more aggressive. For example, Ohio’s governor and his annoying sidekick Dr. Amy yesterday said they were allowing some businesses to reopen (allowing?) but as of May 12, face masks will be required to go into any retail store. I’ve been out shopping since this dempanic began, building up immunity and supporting my local business. I’ve stood in line to get into the hardware store for necessary supplies because they would only let a handful of people in at time. I sit in my car to worship. I practice social distancing, I clean my cart and hands. Now, now that things are easing, the governor tells me that stores must refuse to serve me to if I don’t wear a face mask. Now that we’ve done what they told us to do for 6 weeks? Now that it’s clear their dire warnings have proved wrong? Now that millions have lost their jobs and many businesses will never reopen? I won’t do it. They keep moving the goalpost. They’re going to ride this “crisis” as far as they can. I would have never believed how easy it would be. Most of my friends are all in and think I’m heartless and reckless. Wake up citizens! Sorry for the rant.

The 'experts' sound like captain hindsight. The intended goal to free hospital capacity (which was not needed) and flatten the curve were met. Now, kung flu is a pretense to confine law abiding citizens yet release dangerous felons onto the street to protect them from the flu? If I can safely navigate a grocery store, I can safely navigate my barbershop which is more essential to me than any of my congressional delegation. The experts should focus on their job instead of social justice going forward.

Indeed, there is and will be continued "mission creep". The dims, globalists, msm, and the American deep state need something to replace their "climate change" narrative which was intended to globalize the world. Climate change is not transforming the world as the new worlders had hoped. Rather, a populist nationalism has re-gained the advantage. Posters here have commented previously about Agenda 21 and how it has now morphed into Agenda 2030. In generic terms we are more familiar with, the term is the "new world order". Regardless, if we believe the virus pandemic was engineered and planned from the very beginning or if it is a naturally-caused catastrophe from which the new worlders seek advantage, they will exercise every opportunity to get something from it. Will they go so far as to turn the global panic and government strong-arming into an armed global revolution between us and the globalists? There is no way to know, but, judging by current events, I worry. But, the one thing we Americans can control is to prevent the dims from ever holding public office again and/or controlling the federal, state, and local governments. In November, the dims must be shown the door. At all levels. As commented by others here at L/com so many times, America is at a critical juncture in its history and the bridge to move us forward with our liberties in hand is dead ahead. We must ensure the President Trump's re-election and gain control of both houses this time. Guess whose campaign I will be contributing to with a big part of my stimulus money? May God continue to protect the President of the United States and his family.

I suspect they will eventually ALLOW those who test positive to antibodies, or agree to take a vaccine to go out. If they try to force me to stay in seclusion because I am "vulnerable" and won't take a Bill Gates vaccine, I will be asking why all the AIDS patients are allowed to roam free!

One of the more significant things to result from this reaction to the virus is the boost President Trump will get. Compared to all the democrat politicians, talking heads, and media, he has been the most optimistic and steady throughout the ''crisis.'' He has shown what a President is supposed to be. We have watched the democrats and their media hacks go completely off the rails, trying to harm the President and the livelihoods of millions of Americans. Briefings on the progress of the battle against the virus turned into a disgusting and dishonorable display by the juvenile media! Democrats were observed trying to place the blame for every death and shortfall of PPE on President Trump. Democrat's incessant whining about things THEY should have planned and budgeted for are sickening to watch! President Trump landslide 2020!

The so-called "pandemic" is not the problem ... it is the ginned up "panic" that is the problem. Nothing will get people to give up their rights faster than saying "your children will die!!!" .... if they don't follow orders. Then herd mentality kicks in. One steer starts to make a run for it after the loud lightning strike and that scares the five steers next to him. Then you get a crowd of naturally jittery steers to stampede and finally the whole herd has to head for the hills as fast as they can because .... well ...everyone is doing it! In this most recent case, the lightning strike may not have been planned but it has been taken advantage of and is being used to accomplish other ends.

The check out person at the "big box store" said that people are coming into the store to buy unnecessary items and they are rude and mean. One person heaved a piece of PVC pipe at a checker because it didn't have a UPC sticker on it. People are reaching the boiling point over their loss of freedoms. President Trump has been handed the election landslide IF he makes and issue with 2 things: 1) Joe and Hunter Biden's enduring love for and business affairs with China 2) Obama-Biden-Fauci sending $37mil AND the viruses to the Wuhan Lab to investigate bat viruses after the U.S. Congress forbade Fauci and his NIH to continue with that research Pound that home every chance you get, Mr. President. The American people now hate the Chinese for what they have done.

I just came from Home Depot, and there was a man standing outside with a lovely standard poodle. He had his mask on; the poodle didn't, so I scolded the poodle and, happily, the man smiled, because we have to remember that we are recovering and it isn't going to be forever, and we're supposed to be independent Americans. I bought some paint and walked down to pay, and figured I'd just turn around and walk back up to entrance where I came in and get my car. But when i got to that entrance I was told I had to turn around and walk back down to door by the registers because they- he and another guy - were counting everyone who came in. I asked him if I could please just go through that door and he not count me, but he said "No", and he was not smiling. Walking back, I saw a lady with grey hair and figured she'd sympathize with me, but she mumbled something about "Health Department". This is crazy and scary. These people are too old for Common Core, but they think like automatons. I am glad for all the people who are standing up and resisting this kind of numb and dumb behavior. Too much conditioning going on everywhere.

I'd say it's more like "Civil War creep." Initially they just caled us names (racists, deplorables, rednecks, etc.). Then they amped it up by doxxing us, forcing some of us to lose our jobs. Then they turned their Antifa goons loose to beat us up, with the cops just watching. And now, they're locking us in our homes and killing all of our jobs while turning felons loose out of jail. And our sentence keeps getting longer with no fixed conditions on when we will be released. What the hell are we waiting for? Until they start putting us in boxcars? Until THEY actually fire the first shot? We need to be seriously marching on every state capitol and every city hall, and not just wearing the cute little masks.

My biggest concern is how our government seems to have lost its priorities. The top priority has become containing the corona virus, and that's just wrong. The economic devastation worldwide is catastrophic. The circumstances are different, but this is similar to the 1920s and 1930s. Regional economies around the world collapsed, tyrants rose up, and eventually lead to World War II. The economic damage will be felt much longer than the corona virus itself. The top priority must be economic. We cannot ignore that. Its a matter of national security. We have to reopen the United States. The rest of the world has to reopen as well.

It is interesting to watch how fast many politicians are trying to posture themselves into avoiding the blame for all of their draconian "mitigation measures." It started with Trump (whom I believe got snookered by the leftist media and medical toads) wisely seeing that the governors ought to be the ones imposing the real mitigation measures, so they would reap the consequences if their actions proved foolish and costly. Now the governors have figured out they can pass that onus down to the county and city levels (witness Colorado Governor "Police" who has now stated he will let local governments decide when and how to restart their economies), in hopes of deflecting the public's short memory of who first put them in the doo doo. When the chickens finally come home to roost, we are going to witness the biggest finger-pointing exercise in our history. Is there any wonder why one can truly loath politicians for their calculating, wind-testing approach to governance???

The editorial is very sensible. We need to take precautions but cannot stand by and see our society destroyed. The stay-at-home-forever crowd must be ignored. They will never be held accountable for the horrendous effects of the policies they advocate.

Hey #5 - Being negative and a cynic is my schtick. Get your own! (Smile) PDT is no better or worse in this than anyone else in all this. His demand that Ford and GM manufacture ventilators, invoking the Defense Production Act because we were at "war" with the virus, was absolute nonsense. (Let's not forget the many calls for the military to back up the threat, either.) But it is informative. His daily "briefings" that have degenerated into "Defeat the Press" have become stale. And he continues to showcase his team of "experts", who seem to be compromised around here. And he signed away three TRILLION imaginary dollars to save our economy...maybe, and maybe more will be printed for the stated purpose. Now any adjustments of this craziness to minimally re-open commerce are cheered as big deals. They are, and not in the way most mean. They are a continuation of the usurpation of rights guaranteed citizens by emergency decrees issued on faulty models and data ...starting with the projection of millions dying. The public complies with a growing smile. We cheer while we are still choking. We flattened the curve while we flattened our economy.

So many great posts. #19 mentions Trump being "snookered". I'd use a different term, however I think he was convinced against all his instincts. He has spoken about the day when "they" came into his office and told him he was going to have to shut down the most powerful and successful economy in history This brought to mind GW coming into the Rose Garden in 2008, in the middle of the '08 campaign, and having to announce impending economic collapse. He was as white as the proverbial sheet. WHO are these people who go to a (Republican) POTUS and tell him to do something which will destroy him/the Party? "Experts" of some amorphous type who are able to persuade DJT to do something all of his instincts are telling him not to do? His love for America and the American people is why he set in motion the shut-down. Two million Americans could DIE! DIE! DIE! How right he was when he spoke a word of caution, that we could not allow the "cure to be worse than the disease," not even one death! restarting the economy isn't worth one death, then the finger wagging And here we are, with this creepy mission transmogrifying into something increasingly voracious. In '08, the golden boy BO had to win. Remember he was "the one [they'd] been waiting for"? The "fundamental transformation" was well on it's way when HRC was supposed to complete the mission, when the great Interruptor shocked the world and won. For four years the Left has tried to destroy DJT. I can't think of anyone who could have stood up and stood against the onslaught. And now, a new and weirdly behaving virus is let loose across the planet requiring the great engine of the world's economies to grind to a nearly complete halt. ...but ...not ...so ...fast... But the Left still does not get it, that the strength of the USA is her people, and right now, the people, the segment of the population which rolls up its sleeves, that has always signed up to protect and defend our Nation, who walk into the fires of danger and disease, these are rising up and saying, "this far, and no further," we don't want more from the government, but to get back to work! While all of this is going on, something even weirder than this is going on in Biden's Basement. What will, sooner or later, emerge from that Basement, some kind of Dr. Frankenstein's Monster?

The good news is that you might get out of future jury duty, because when you are asked under oath about your own biases during a federal criminal case jury selection you would have to answer honestly by responding, “Your Honor, I don’t trust a damn thing anyone in the FBI says.” If the heirs of Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., were to go up on the stand and testify, the recent disgraceful revelations about how their bosses tried to frame LTG Mike Flynn mean you would be entirely correct to grant them the same credibility as the dude caught wearing a black cape, a Lone Ranger mask, and a nametag

The unsealing last week of a series of documents in the Michael Flynn criminal case cemented the reality that a small cadre of high-level FBI agents set a perjury trap for President Trump’s then-national security advisor. Beyond exposing the depth of this despicable personal and political hit job on a 30-year military veteran, the newly discovered documents hold great legal significance. Here’s your legal primer. The Russiagate special counsel’s office charged Flynn with violating 18 U. S. C. § 1001, which makes it a federal crime to “knowingly and willfully” make a false statement of “a material fact” to a federal official. Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team claimed Flynn

Natural gas is withstanding the coronavirus-fueled economic crash in a way that its closely associated relative, oil, isn’t. Oil prices have reached record lows, with the U.S. benchmark oil price briefly dropping below zero last month after trading at around $60 per barrel at the start of 2020. The U.S. natural gas price, meanwhile, is stable, staying below $2 per million British thermal units, or MMBtu, a historically low level it has been hovering at for a while due to a glut produced from the shale boom. Oil producers are shutting in their wells, prompting tens of thousands of layoffs, because the pace of the price collapse was so sudden,

Brett Kavanaugh was a very difficult Supreme Court nominee for liberals to oppose. He had a stellar reputation, an impeccable record, and a genial disposition. While members of the Resistance held a protest on the steps of the Supreme Court minutes after President Trump announced him as the pick to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, their early efforts to keep him off the bench showed little promise. All that changed in mid-September 2018, when the Washington Post carefully packaged and presented Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh had tried to rape her when she was in high school. The media and Democrats immediately latched onto the accusation

Preparing for a hog hunt is like preparing for the end of the world. You need a reliable rifle and ammunition, of course, but you also need a bunch of other stuff—a sidearm, maps, binoculars, compass, flashlight, knife, raingear, boots, food and water, two-way radios. Once you’re all geared up, you can’t help but think that if the end came, you’d be ready. The feeling is even more intense when you go hog hunting during a global pandemic. It might not be the apocalypse, but when it comes to buying guns and ammo—or toilet paper—it might as well be. I know, because I recently went on a hog hunt in East Texas.

In the world of political reporting on the presidential race, two seemingly divergent stories are taking shape and blowing up, respectively. And it’s the stuff of feminist nightmares. The first is about the “veepstakes”: Because the world is topsy-turvy and former vice-president Joe Biden cleared the Democratic field in March, we’re in an earlier-than-usual frenzy of speculation about who his running mate will be. Biden, who has long been dogged by criticism on feminist grounds (stemming from his history of bad stances on abortion, his having permitted the ill treatment of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas hearings, and allegations that he has spent a career touching women

But some will continue circling as "zombie" satellites — neither alive nor quite dead. "Most zombie satellites are satellites that are no longer under human control, or have failed to some degree," says Scott Tilley. Tilley, an amateur radio operator living in Canada, has a passion for hunting them down.In 2018, he found a signal from a NASA probe called IMAGE that the space agency had lost track of in 2005.

The Georgia Democrat, best known for her failed gubernatorial candidacy in 2018, has launched a full-fledged campaign for the vice presidency in recent weeks, telling every news channel that will book her why she thinks she’s cut out for the job. And in doing so, Abrams has proved why she’s not. Abrams’s media tour began back in February when Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, first mentioned his campaign was looking at Abrams. When asked if she’d want the job, Abrams didn’t shy away.

Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema definitely got everyone’s attention Monday when pictures started surfacing of her rocking purple hair during the pandemic. The senator showed up on the senate floor with shiny purple hair and a bright green sleeveless dress while donning a face mask.

Now it’s a question debated openly on the op-ed pages of the MSMDNC’s two biggest newspapers. In the New York Times on Sunday, “Catholic Left” opinion writer Elizabeth Bruenig argued that “Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden demand action,” and that she “can assert with firm conviction”
