As COVID deaths wane and the virus appears to be losing its virulence, restrictions imposed during the height of the pandemic are beginning to be lifted. The latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows that most Americans believe the restrictions are largely being eased for political reasons, not science. The latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows strong sentiment in favor of ending the limits imposed on Americans’ lives due to the COVID pandemic. Among those queried, 29% they felt that restrictions were being lifted “too slowly,” while 29% said they were being taken down “at the right time.” Less than a third, or 32%, said they thought restrictions were coming off “too fast.”

There should never had been any restrictions. Still waiting for the governors to explain why they murdered so many seniors by putting infected people back in the senior homes. Those were the most vulnerable. Still waiting to hear from Biden why the border is wide open with no restrictions for the invaders along with no testing. This whole thing was one dangerous farce which caused so much damage to society, caused so much damage to our children. The disadvantaged children are now further behind. The shots killed and maimed people. In normal times they would have been pulled long ago but instead citizens are losing their jobs if they don’t get the shot. All these restrictions have let us know though who the wannabe dictators are which is a good thing.

It is my belief the implementation of restrictions was political and not science based in the first place. So we're just correcting the first mistake.

For poops sake I'd put that at 99.7% since virtually all the the restrictions were politics to begin. Indeed lifting them once the political purpose is met or no longer being served is pure politics.

ALL of Covid protocols wee driven by politics. It was a smokescreen to change laws directing the use of mail in ballots. That were then eploited to produce fradulent votes and overthrow a legitemately elected President. I am actually terrified by how so many Americans were duped by the mask & vaccine mandates, to say nothing of the 4 year non-stop barrage of interference and distraction during Trump's term in office. Even today, I can see old accquantences on FaceBook accing Trump of wrongdoing while they blithely-if at all-mention how expensive everything has suddenly gotten. THERE ARE NONE SO BLIND AS THOSE WHO WILL NOT SEE.

I get that leftists have taken a fascist approach to governance and used 'science' and fear as their mantra to fool people into compliance. Did they truly believe that could keep the lying ongoing forever? Eventually even the CDC and NIH statists were going to fold and tell the truth even if the media didn't. Did they really think we would not react in anger and hold them accountable?

Since the Covid restrictions were not "science based" when they were applied then their removal is not science based. They were initially forced on us under the promise that it was "two weeks to flatten the curve". This meant we needed to avoid the spread of the infection for two weeks so the hospitals could handle the flow. Science did not support this and we now know that most of what we thought then was wrong. They were continued in place for political reasons, to give more power to progressive governors, so removing them is political and right.

It's not surprising that many believe the lifting of restrictions is being driven by politics. I wonder, though, what portion of those people thought the implementation and enforcement of restrictions WEREN'T driven by politics. People with partisan cynicism are truly gullible. No political ideology transcends human nature, nor human subjectivity.

The U.S. went through a historical convulsion in the 1960s, and not only survived but emerged restored and optimistic in the 1980s.

While running for president, Barack Obama said electricity prices will “necessarily skyrocket” under his energy plan. As gasoline reaches unaffordable heights for many Americans, never forget that the Democratic Party wants to inflict painful energy costs on the country. It’s in its political DNA. As of Thursday, the average U.S. price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $4.32, the highest ever recorded in this country. A month ago, it was $3.48. A year ago, about six weeks after Joe Biden took the oath of office, it was $2.82. Recent projections that the U.S. average would peak at $4.25 a gallon

President Joe Biden, sorely in need of an alibi as oil and gasoline prices soar and wreak havoc on the economy, now blames Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for the spike in energy prices. In fact, surging oil and gas prices are the inevitable results of Biden’s own foolish green policies. “Putin’s war is already hurting American families at the gas pump … I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home,” Biden told Americans Tuesday, as he imposed a ban on Russian oil. Later, he doubled down on his claim.

The best thing about Joe Biden’s presidency is his penchant for short speeches. It is unclear if he has the stamina for the marathon orations of his predecessor, but certainly the American people do not. The dismal ratings for this year’s State of the Union Address bear that out as they did for Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress last year. Who can blame them? The American people have endured much lately. One might not know that from listening to Biden’s remarks on March 1st where he evaluated the state of the union as “strong.” But leading societal indicators suggest a different adjective – “Hobbesian.”

That gasoline prices are becoming unaffordable to many Americans is becoming old news. What got us here, though, is a story unheard by much of the public. It starts and ends with green politics. As gasoline reaches prices that made it a luxury good during President Joe Biden’s year in office, the White House is considering asking the Saudis to produce more oil. At the same time, the administration apparently wants more oil from Venezuela, which is languishing under a dictatorship that’s squarely aligned with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Iran, a member in good standing with the axis of evil. “Joe Biden is frantically searching the globe

Americans are deeply unsettled by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade neighboring Ukraine, a just-released I&I/TIPP Poll shows. The March public opinion survey shows Americans fear a widening of the conflict could lead to the involvement of U.S. troops and even the use of nuclear weapons by Putin’s Russia. President Joe Biden’s White House and its supporters in Congress are telling a story of America boldly stepping up to lead Europe in its response to the threat of an aggressive Russia. It’s been repeated by some in the mainstream media. But a solid majority of Americans are focused on something very different:

We listened carefully to President Joe Biden’s Tuesday night State of the Union speech for what he plans to do about our growing inflation disaster. We were not impressed. Apart from paying lip service to inflation’s impact on working families, Biden’s proposals will, if anything, make the problem far worse. Biden’s senatorial career goes all the way back to 1973 — by coincidence, the very beginning of the 1970s stagflation, marked by soaring energy prices, roaring inflation, falling real wages, rising unemployment and a dramatic decline in productivity.

"Few pieces of legislation have done more in a critical moment in our history to lift us out of a crisis.” That was how President Joe Biden, early in his State of the Union address, described the $2 trillion “American Rescue Plan.” It’s hard to know where to begin in unpacking why this is so incredibly wrong. But Biden himself provided one answer by spending much of his speech talking about how he’s going to fight rising inflation. The very inflation that the “American Rescue Plan” unleashed. Put another way, what Biden said is that Americans need relief from Biden’s “rescue.”

Biden promised to take “aggressive” executive actions on climate regulations even if the Supreme Court overruled him. He acknowledged that progress on the issue of climate change was difficult to achieve in Congress, hinting that donors could help him pressure lawmakers.
