Scared, Stupid, And Easily Manipulated:
What COVID Has Revealed About The Nation’s Young

The saying goes that crises reveal your true nature. If that’s the case, we are in big trouble, because what COVID has revealed about young people in America is not good. A new Morning Consult poll out this week finds that young people are the most worried about getting COVID of any age group — even though their risk from the disease is negligible. At the other end of the spectrum, the elderly are much less worried, even though they are at the highest risk of death. The poll found that 23% of those between ages 18-34 are “very worried

My kids and grand kids are more worried about the wife and I getting it. We are not jabbed and will not get jabbed. They don't push it and are going on with their lives without any other fear of the china flu.

Because social media and the left's covid meme have so polluted the minds of our young people, it is little wonder why the teen suicide rate is at an all-time high. My advice to our young people - reject leftism, stand tall, and come join us freedom-loving Americans. Young people, may I refer you to a certain document that was published in the year 1776 that contains the following passage - "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness...:" Remember "Happiness"? Lay this one on your lefty school principal and tell him/her/it where they can insert their covid fear mongering, and that America, as founded, is making a permanent comeback.

Being generally Godless creates a spiritual vacuum that sucks in irrational fears and phobias. No God, no hope. That’s what drives these crazy mask-Karens we see in the news.

I'm not surprised by the statistics. The young adults do seem fearful. When I see people without masks I generally see senior citizens. Never that 18-34 group. Maybe they know about that "we'll all die some day" thing.

No surprise. With the daily media blitz, the frequent proclamations from Mount Fauci and the garbage they are being taught in the public schools, it's a wonder that they are not all basket cases hiding in the corners. We adults have lived through major catastrophes, diseases like AIDS and Ebola and listened to the same horror stories but were smart enough to separate the facts from the BS. We did not let the government control us. Not so with the young and dumb.

My 24 year old son lives in an extremely blue state and he is so disturbed with the fact I will not take the jab. All is friends go to an extremely left wing college and it is hard to sit there and hear all the garbage he has bought into from them. It is textbook wokeness on every subject. All I can do is pray and hope he comes to his senses at some point.

Yep, I agree with the poster above -- didn't need Covid to see this -- poll after poll showed that this same age group is terrified that global warming/climate change is an existential threat -- so much so that many have decided to forgo having children because the earth is going to DIE and we're all going to DIE right along with it, so how can they possibly bring children into this situation?! Mind-numbing stupidity.

This is what passes for "values" taught in government schools. While mom and dad are racing with the other rats, the "educators" are at work. While the kiddies will learn all about social injustice and the need to "follow the science", they will have trouble making change at the local convenience store or reading an analog clock. Who needs to know anything? Just as Siri!

From what I have read, the youngster might be dying 2-3 years after taking the jab if they live that long. Incidences of cancer and heart issues abound in the young. #15 If that were my child and I was paying for his college, I might be making some changes. You're being warned what kind of education he is getting.

Allegations that “masks work” and “don’t cause harm” have been enforced by governments and corporations around the world for more than 18 months through arrests, firings, censorship, fines, and denial of access to schools, supermarkets, hospitals, streets, and other public spaces. This has made it virtually impossible for many people to live without complying with mask mandates. In recent weeks, however, more medical scholars and media outlets are coming to grips with facts about masks that Just Facts has been documenting for more than a year

While the big U.S. media mostly pretend Canada’s convoy of truckers disgusted with COVID lockdown culture doesn’t exist, it does. It’s a potent movement that has tapped into a deep vein of cultural anger and resentment over the Canadian government’s authoritarian response to the virus. And guess what? It’s coming here, and soon. As we’ve discovered again in recent years, the left loves civil disobedience, until it’s someone disobeying them. Then it becomes filled with authoritarian busybodies, more than happy to deny you your rights to enforce their vision of the world

Feb. 1 is the Danes’ new independence day. On Tuesday, Denmark rid itself of all of its remaining pandemic restrictions. But liberty in America, the nation that pioneered the guarantee of freedom to its people, is still under assault. Denmark is the first country in Europe to reopen its boxed-in, abused, and drained society. No more indoor mask mandates, or vaccine passports for entry into private establishments. Other European nations have lifted some restrictions, as well, but only Denmark has gone all the way and dropped a self-isolation requirement for those who test positive.

We remember the turbulent ‘60s and how our parents, having grown up in more stable times, could not help but worry that the country was headed toward a disastrous end. But America survived, and eventually became stronger and wiser. At least for a while. Today we see a nation sliding away from the ideals and convictions that set us apart. The U.S. is not perfect. We acknowledge that right now. It’s made up of humans, all of whom are imperfect. We were before the pandemic, and we will be after it’s over. But rather than reveal the best in us,

For the major media, 2022 didn’t bring much good news after a rough 2021. Americans’ trust in both the traditional media and alternative media continued to decline in the new year, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. The I&I/TIPP Media Trust Indexes show continued weakening in early January in the public’s perception of the media, continuing a disturbing recent trend. The Traditional Media Index, which includes such major legacy media as the Washington Post, New York Times, NPR and CBS, among others, fell to 40.2 in January from 43.3 in the final month of 2021, a 7% decline. January’s reading was the second-lowest since the index was created last March.

It’s a curious thing: Obvious, credible signs about a prominent political family emerge, but federal authorities at the Justice Department and elsewhere do nothing. Meanwhile, leftist media “watchdogs,” in a classic case of gaslighting, pretend that nothing has happened. So it is with Joe Biden and his errant son, Hunter. A new book (“Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win“) by investigative researcher and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer makes a powerful case that the Biden family has profited handsomely from its cozy ties to China’s ruling Communist regime.

It wasn’t long ago that we were told that President Donald Trump’s questioning the legitimacy of the election wasn’t just unfounded, but a serious threat to the future of the nation. As one commentator put it, by fanning the specter of election fraud, Trump was “sowing doubt not just about the 2020 election, but whether America’s voting system – the foundation of American democracy – is sound … In a democracy, where governing power is rooted in the consent of the governed, this is deeply dangerous.” Yet here is President Joe Biden, predicting that the next election can’t be trusted, based on far less evidence than Trump had.

Hand it to President Joe Biden: He sticks to his story no matter what. In this week’s press conference, he again tooted his own horn when it comes to job creation. “We created 6 million new jobs, more jobs in one year than any time before,” Biden said. True enough, but as even the Associated Press noted: “The economy added 6.4 million jobs in 2021, the most on government records dating back to 1939, but part of that is just a natural rebound from what had been the steepest job loss on record in 2020, when 9.4 million jobs were

For the past year, Democrats up and down the leadership ladder have been on an endless campaign to portray Republicans as delusional out-of-touch anti-science hate-mongering conspiracy-peddling vote-suppressing anti-vaxxer insurrectionist racists. The result has been a huge shift in party preference: away from Democrats and toward Republicans. Have voters finally wised up to the left’s cravenness and radicalism? Will this newfound awareness last? Gallup this week released its survey on party preference, which found what it describes as “a dramatic shift” over the course of 2021.

According to the latest numbers from the CDC, more Americans have died with COVID since President Joe Biden took office than did in the year before under Donald Trump. CDC data show that, as of January 17, there have been a total of 850,575 deaths in the U.S. related to COVID. On Trump’s last day in office, that number was 424,409. That means 426,166 COVID deaths have occurred — so far — since Biden took office, with the number currently trending well above a thousand a day. This is a stunning rebuke not just of Biden, but of everyone who

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of polls. For one, I’ve never been polled by anyone. For another, the number of people being polled often strikes me as too small a sample from which to draw broad conclusions. Also, those samples more often than not tend to oversample one group, Democrats, let’s say, over another group, which again leads to questions of accuracy. Bottom line, I don’t trust ‘em and tend to ignore them in preference to the only poll that actually counts, the election itself. I’ve often asked myself, what would I do if I were to be contacted to participate in a poll.

President Joe Biden has offered Russian President Vladimir Putin access to NATO bases so that Moscow can verify the US does not have Tomahawk cruise missiles in Romania or Poland in a bid to avoid war in Ukraine. Sources close to Biden told Bloomberg on Tuesday the proposal would only come to fruition upon agreement with American allies, especially Poland and Romania. Russia would also need to share similar information about a number of bases housing ground-launched weapons. Biden's proposal reportedly aims to diminish the Kremlin's fears that the US could use the missiles to target Russia. News of the proposal comes as US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is set
