Do these two developments prove the Coronavirus lockdowns were unnecessary?

Over the weekend two major Coronavirus related developments swept non mainstream media websites which cast doubts as to whether any of the economy crushing lockdowns were necessary.  Not only did these lockdowns crush state economies across the United States, a significant majority of the citizens of this nation had their most fundamental rights violated and stripped away.  This was all done because of a pandemic which is far less serious than the federal government, state governments, and the media made it out to be.

The first development, concerning the actual lethality of Coronavirus, is documented in this Townhall article.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website disclosed the shockingly small number of people who died from only the Wuhan coronavirus, with no other cause of death mentioned. Hold on to your hat because here it is: out of the 161,392 deaths in the CDC data, just six percent, about 9,700 deaths, were attributed to the coronavirus alone. According to the CDC, the other 94 percent had an average of 2.6 additional conditions or causes of deaths, such as heart disease, diabetes, and sepsis. 

Here is the actual text from the CDC’s Weekly Updates by Select Demographic and Geographic Characteristics

Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups. For data on comorbidities, 

I have long believed that the Coronavirus pandemic has been blown completely out of proportion by the political left in an attempt to sway the upcoming presidential election.  The author of the Townhall article shares my belief.

Something is driving the liberal media’s morbid obsession with the U.S. death toll. The media is doing everything it can to blame the virus on President Trump, a virus that originated in China and is killing people all over the world. It’s been widely known for months that people with comorbidities and the elderly are at higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19, so why is the media clamoring for prolonged shutdowns and keeping schools closed? Is it because they see a connection between prolonged shutdowns, a weakened economy and the Democrats’ electoral chances in November?

The media snd certain governors have continuously hyped the number of Coronavirus infections as justification for the lockdowns and mask mandates. This Townhall article calls into question the sensitivity of the tests used and the necessity of the continued lockdowns.

According to The New York Times, potentially 90 percent of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus present in their bodies that such individuals do not need to isolate nor are they candidates for contact tracing. Leading public health experts are now concerned that overtesting is responsible for misdiagnosing a huge number of people with harmless amounts of the virus in their systems.

“Most of these people are not likely to be contagious, and identifying them may contribute to bottlenecks that prevent those who are contagious from being found in time,” warns The Times.

It is well past time that our elected officials lift all of the restrictions put in place in the name of the Coronavirus pandemic and restore the entire country back to the old normal.

There seems to be some confusion as to why the left media are reaching so far to promote the Biden Ticket as to appear crazy.

and this

and this

One might wonder how these places stay in the news / information business with reporting like this.

The answer is these people are not in the news business, they are in the religion business.

Now I don’t mean the religion business in the way that Christianity or Islam is a religion in the sense that they believe in a God whose message of forgiveness and repentance are delivered by his son (Christ and Christianity) or message of submission and obedience are proclaimed by his prophet (Mohammad).

No I mean religion in the sense that their audiences have a fixed set of beliefs from Orange Man Bad to straight white people are the source of all evil to police are murdering innocent people in the street the source of evil.

And because these things are articles of faith to those remaining viewers who tune in to affirm their beliefs all must be framed in the lens of said beliefs.

So when riots violence and looting were going on for months the reassured the faithful that nothing was happen but when it became impossible to ignore suddenly they were Trump riots.

So when Joe Biden had a lackluster convention and a generic speech it was the greatest speech in the history of history, but when Trump brought in people to provide a message of optomism it became a “dark” message.

So when Donald Trump announced his intention to go to Kenosha they reported that Joe Biden wouldn’t go, that he shouldn’t go there, that people didn’t want him there and it would cause violence and trouble.

Then after his visit was a success Joe Biden decided to go to Kenosha, but wouldn’t take questions there, it makes no difference to the faithful

None of it is about reality, it’s all about affirming the beliefs of the church of the liberals

That why we are seeing the “Trump will win in a landslide on election night but will lose a week later” meme from Axios. Part of it of course is the hope that enough votes can be stolen to win (particularly once they know how many they need to steal) but most of it is a Millerite attempt to postpone the day of reckoning where people say, “how can this be? We’ve been told this wasn’t happening for months?

When you think of it this way, it all makes sense.
