No Benefit, Many Costs

Original Article

A new study from Johns Hopkins University’s Institute for Applied Economics supports what I and others have long maintained: lockdowns do not work, and their economic, social, educational, and psychological costs far outweigh any health benefits they might bring.Early in the pandemic, epidemiological modelers predicted catastrophic casualties that could be averted only with stringent lockdown measures. In response, nearly every country around the world imposed lockdown measures by the end of March 2020. Yet little evidence existed to support such actions, and the modeling studies were fatally flawed.

Lockdowns came from Dr. Death Fauci and Joey obliged. What a dynamic duo.

Senator Marco Rubio trashed Congress' committee to investigate the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021 in an interview on Sunday, decrying its turn toward rank partisanship. Rubio, speaking on CBS' Face the Nation, said that the panel has gone beyond representing people like him, Republicans who want anyone involved with the events of that day imprisoned. 'That commission is a scam,' Rubio said. 'I think it's a complete partisan scam. And I think anyone who committed a crime on January 6 should be prosecuted and if convicted, put in jail,'

YORK, Pa.—The Pennsylvania Republican Party declined Saturday to endorse a candidate in the state’s highly competitive and increasingly ugly Senate primary.The members of the GOP state committee, which closed its meeting in Lancaster on Saturday to the press, voted down a motion to endorse candidates in any statewide race by voice vote, according to several sources in the room.Ahead of the vote, most state Republicans predicted there would be no endorsement. Still, the non-endorsement was a disappointment for real estate developer Jeff Bartos, whose campaign did not project a victory before the meeting but had received the most votes in straw polls of committee members

A Republican congressman from Florida claims that NBC refused to air an ad criticizing China during the 2022 Genocide Games in Beijing.Mike Waltz (R, FL), a former Green Beret and well-known critic of China, purchased the ad titled “Genocide Games” through his campaign. The 30-second, $40,000 spot calls out China’s long history of human rights abuses and slams U.S. businesses for doing business with the communist country.Waltz also took aim at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for allowing a notorious human rights abuser like China to host the Games.

The Biden administration, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, has reportedly illegally compiled records of nearly one billion firearms sales in a searchable, digital database.Some Second Amendment supporters claim that this could be a backdoor registry that, in the end, may lead to an outright gun ban or even confiscation. Along those lines, a group of GOP lawmakers have launched an investigation into the transaction trove that could be used by the government to target legal gun owners. Gun rights advocate John Lott, the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center and former Justice Department advisor, claims in a Real Clear Politics commentary,

Everybody knows that the city’s messy and undisciplined “Open Restaurants” outdoor-café program needs some serious revising. But here’s a better idea that nobody wants to hear: Let’s get rid of the whole enchilada.With the pandemic in rapid retreat, and fewer people willing to freeze their patooties off in poorly heated “outdoor” eyesores that test the patience of diners and employees alike, we don’t need more alfresco-dining shanty towns.Limit the sheds to the ones that are already up, demolish the little-used ones that provide shelter to drug dealers and vagrants, and be done with it.

Donald Trump's former national security adviser on Sunday accused Beijing of staging the 'biggest land grab in history' with its territorial encroachment on the South China Sea.Beijing has laid claim to a vast majority of the waters there, and China's aggressive buildup in military presence and increased exercises in the region has served to alarm and anger US allies there as well as American officials at home. Retired Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster made the stark warning about an increasingly 'aggressive' China after troublesome technical issues led to his appearance on CBS News' Face The Nation to be delayed by nearly half an hour.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate and fierce mask proponent Stacey Abrams sparked outrage on Twitter after she shared a picture of herself maskless while surrounded by dozens of children forced to wear face coverings during a visit to an Atlanta elementary school last week - the latest Democrat to ignore her own demand for mask mandates. Abrams, who has been branded a 'mask fascist' on the social media platform, retweeted the photo of her visit to Glenwood Elementary School on Friday, before quickly deleting the tweet.The 48-year-old Democrat had recently called Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp 'incompetent' for moving to block local mask mandates.

America is in a terrible position. Lying corrupt Obama holdovers are running the country based on a stolen election with millions of invalid ballots. They get away with what they can because it seems that only a few Republicans are pushing back. The Democrats expect to win the 2022 midterms. You see this in everything they do. We were warned. If they got away with stealing the 2020 Election they weren’t going to stop, they never will.

Sexually harass minors, I suppose.

Joe Biden’s approval rating among African-Americans has dropped significantly during his presidency, as his approval overall continues to slide.A focus group of African Americans in the states of Michigan, Texas, and Georgia, conducted by Democratic surveyor Navigator Research, found that Biden’s approval among black people fell 10 percentage points over the course of the year 2021, from 86% in January 2021, shortly after Biden took office, to 76% in 2022. Even more surprising, Biden’s approval among black voters under 35 declined by a full 25% over the past year, from 88% in 2021 to just 63% in 2022.

Barack Obama has been pictured at his new multimillion-dollar Hawaii mansion for the very first time, but he did not yet appear to be on island time. Far from being in beach mode, Obama appeared to be deep in conversation as he spoke with workers from local building firm Armstrong Builders, who are currently constructing his beachfront compound on the island of Oahu. Dressed in beige pants and a grey polo shirt, Obama looked tense as he was pictured speaking with builders and architects.The former president could be seen scowling as he chatted Saturday with at least four developers who were working on the project.

GoFundMe plans to distribute the remaining $9million of donated funds to 'credible and established charities' that were reportedly chosen by the convoy organizers and have been verified by the platform.

The US State Department is waiving sanctions on Iran's civilian nuclear program in the hope that Tehran will return to the 2015 nuclear agreement, a senior official said Friday.As U.S. negotiators head back to Vienna for what could be a make-or-break session, Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed several sanctions waivers related to Iran's civilian nuclear activities. The move reverses the Trump administration's decision to rescind them. The resumption of the waiver, ended by Trump in 2020, 'would be essential to ensuring Iran's swift compliance' if a new deal on controlling Tehran's nuclear program can be reached in talks in Vienna, the State Department official said

Vitamin D may help fight off coronavirus after all, a study suggests. The jury has been out on the 'sunshine vitamin' since early in the pandemic, with conflicting findings muddying the waters. Papers that did find a link were deemed not rigorous enough and not definitive. But a new study—this time in Israel—claims to have the most conclusive evidence yet. Previous research has been criticised for only looking at vitamin D levels when the Covid patient was already in hospital.(Snip)To overcome this limitation, in their latest study, researchers from Bar Ilan University and the Galilee Medical Center looked at patient records up to two years before

Karl Rove is, once again, beating the war drums. He is ready to send 18-year-olds like my son to fight nuclear Russia over Ukraine’s border so that he and the other neocons can talk like tough guys on TV. On Jan. 28, Karl Rove shared an article on his Twitter page written by Noah Rothman attacking American populists who are opposed to sending our troops to war with Russia. My view is that Mr. Rove despises “America First.” He loves war and the global economy that all these wars prop up.

Aspen is hosting the National Brotherhood of Skiers, which is advertised to be “the largest black ski group in the United States.” That’s nice. Welcome to Aspen, my friends. A hearty welcome was not enough, however, for Mike Kaplan, the liberal white CEO of Aspen Skiing Company. He found it necessary to issue a memo to all employees instructing them how to behave around black people. Kaplan instructed employees to greet the black guests “lovingly and intentionally.” He says employees ordinarily treat all guests this way but instructed them “to make an even greater effort” with the black ones. He goes on to tell employees the reason for this special effort for blacks.
