(LifeSiteNews) — If President Biden said the pandemic is over, why would HHS move to renew the public health emergency declarations an 11th time?
An 11th renewal is ludicrous, nonsensical, absurd and has no basis. Is this about mid-term elections? Is this about presidential elections in 2024? Is this purely politics now and the drive to hold onto accrued power amassed with the lockdown lunacy?
It is time to allow America to be unshackled from these COVID lockdown lunatic policies. Completely.
Omicron, the current dominant variant, and its sub-variants (clades) are very mild, so much so that most people, even many high-risk people, can adequately handle the infection and cope with it. The reality is that while Omicron can still present a challenge (as does seasonal influenza, the common cold, and a range of respiratory illnesses) to elderly people and especially those with co-morbidities (as well as to obese people and immune-compromised people), it is revealing itself to be no more severe than seasonal flu. Generally, it is less so.
Moreover, we have used repurposed therapeutics (as prophylactics and treatment) effectively, and we have availability. We also know who are in the at-risk group and how to effectively manage their treatment. Hospitals were given hundreds of billions of dollars in PPE, PPP, and COVID relief money to prepare. They are prepared. However, hospitals are limited because they laid off many nurses who chose to not be COVID vaccinated, and they must apologize given the clear evidence that the mandate policy had no scientific basis. The data clearly showed very soon after the COVID vaccine rollout that there was no difference in terms of viral load between a vaccinated and an unvaccinated person. Thus, the vaccine mandate was punitive and nonsensical, not just for nurses, but for all employees subjected to it without any scientific basis. Hospitals and workplaces should take these employees back and pay them their lost wages. They should do all they can to make them ‘whole.’
Moreover, a large portion of the vulnerable population in the developed world is already vaccinated and protected against severe disease. Importantly, we have learned much about the utility of inexpensive supplements like Vitamin D to reduce disease risk. Also, as mentioned, there is a host of good therapeutics available to prevent hospitalization and death should a vulnerable patient e.g. elderly in a nursing home or similar congregated setting or private residence, become infected. And for younger people, the risk of severe disease – already low before Omicron – is minuscule. This is the data. This is the evidence across the globe.
Even in places with strict lockdown measures, there are hundreds of thousands of newly registered Omicron cases daily, and countless unregistered positives from home testing. Measures like mandatory masking and distancing have had negligible, or at most small, effects on transmission. Large-scale population quarantines only delay the inevitable. Vaccination and boosters have not halted Omicron disease spread; heavily vaccinated nations like Israel and Australia have more daily cases per capita than any place on earth at the moment. This wave will run its course despite the emergency measures.
The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) failed spectacularly at resisting the initial COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates that were imposed by the government on freedom-loving Canadians.
Most CPC MPs subserviently complied with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in creating a police-state where our Charter Rights were regularly violated, but now Pierre Poilievre would have us believe they have turned a corner and nothing like it will ever happen again.
How can they rebuild our trust? Well, they can start by owning up to their terrible mistakes.
SIGN: The CPC must apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID regime.
You will remember how freedom-loving Canadians were abandoned by the CPC, with Erin O'Toole calling for vaccine passports and most CPC MPs pearl-clutching about "vaccine hesitancy".
That was until the party realized how popular the Truckers' Convoy had become and got behind the movement.
It's quite possible the CPC would still be mute on vaccine mandates and lockdowns were it not for the heroic Freedom Convoy that converged on Ottawa.
Let's not forget the businesses, churches, schools and universities that were shuttered for months on end because of the COVID hysteria generated by politicians in Ottawa, and the CPC did nothing.
They did nothing when people started losing their livelihoods (with some Canadians even losing their lives to suicide) because of the government's deranged policy of locking people down.
The CPC must show they have learned a lesson from the COVID tyranny Canadians needlessly suffered and that they contributed to.
SIGN: Demand the CPC apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.
In yet another reminder of how disconnected from reality the CPC were, MPs like Leslyn Lewis, Marilyn Gladu and Rosemarie Falk were omitted from their "Shadow Cabinet" in November 2021 because they dared to question the COVID shots.
Canadians must still contend with vaccine mandates in some settings and the intrusive ArriveCAN system in order to re-enter the country, while we are among the last three countries in the world to continue discriminating against unvaccinated visitors who remain barred from entering.
As Pierre Poilievre takes the reigns of the CPC, conservative voters must demand an apology from the party that abandoned them during the COVID-hysteria of the past two years.
SIGN: The CPC can rebuild trust by apologizing for capitulating to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.
Given that Omicron, with its mild infection, is running its course to the end, there is simply no justification for maintaining emergency status. So why would HHS move to renew it an 11th time? The lockdowns, the school closures, the shielding-in-place, the business closures, the personnel firings and shortages, and school and university disruptions have more damage to the population’s health and welfare than the virus. The American population and most nations that engaged in lockdown lunacy, etc., have been crushed, have devastated their economies and peoples. We foisted harm, even death, on our populations by the lockdown lunatic policies.
This is especially true of our poorer women and minority populations, who could not afford to shield. We catastrophically shifted the burden of infection and illness from the latte-drinking, laptop-tapping, “Zoom class” to the poorer members of society who could not shield because they had to maintain front-facing employment to survive. They could not “work remotely.” Many business owners, laid-off employees, and children in America committed suicide because of the lockdown restrictive lunacy.
The state of emergency is clearly not justified now, and it cannot be justified by fears of a hypothetical recurrence of some more severe infection at some unknown hypothetical point in the future. We just cannot operate public health policy this way. If a novel severe strain or variant were to occur, and it seems unlikely from Omicron (though we are placing the spike antigen under relentless selection pressure with sub-optimal vaccinal antibodies, mounting sub-optimal immune pressure, and in the midst of massive infectious pressure), then that would be the time we discussed a declaration of emergency. Not now. The emergency is done, it is over, and it is time we let Americans go back to normal life. All restrictions, all mandates, vaccine and otherwise, must be ended now!
Americans have sacrificed human rights, dignity, liberties, and livelihoods for over two years in the service of protecting the general public health. Americans lost people, vulnerable people, to the virus, and no one can deny that. But most of America’s losses were due to the lockdown lunacy and, above all, we lost our freedoms. It is time to allow America to be unshackled from these COVID lockdown lunatic policies. Completely. Americans must live life freely once again, taking reasonable precautions, but unfettered by government’s failed COVID lockdown polices. Not one of them worked!
Omicron is circulating, but it is not an emergency. The emergency is over. It is done! The current emergency declaration must be canceled. It is time. It is time to bring this COVID pandemic to a full closure and to move on to proper public legal inquiries as to the decision-making that went into the COVID response, particularly the roll-out of the ineffective and safety untested COVID gene injections.
