LOCKDOWN: the truth of lockdown is being admitted: YES, it was a lie, a disaster; 'Public fear deliberately stoked to justify decisions made on the hoof & on questionable advice'; Jonathan Sumption
by Paul Alexander
I wrote this first with Risch, Kulldorff, Bhattacharya, Gupta, Atlas, Tenenbaum etc. We were warning about the catastrophe yet we were mocked, slandered...now they are stumbling over each other; JAIL!
Lockdown was a complete failure and not one instance anywhere, worked!
As I wrote near two years ago (Tenenbaum, Dara, Risch et al.), lockdowns are and were a catastrophic failure! It was clear to me day one in the Trump administration that the response to the pandemic was not a scientific one but a political one and the political response is now on hyper-steroids under Biden. Biden et al. do nothing without a political calculation. The CDC and NIH and FDA and PHAC and SAGE and Health Canada never EVER followed the science. They have always been averse to the science. We gave them science and they rejected it for their corrupted inept illogical, irrational, specious, absurd, non-sensical response. None have been as non-sensical and inept and irrational and unsound as Trudeau and Ford of Canada. Absurd! painful for the people.
Some now argue it will take the balance of the 21st century, 80 years, to reverse what the lockdowns has done, hollowing out societies. The emotional, social, physical, psychological, and economic tolls. The most vulnerable groups in the US, which have been least able to afford the lockdowns and school closures, have been devastated by unscientific ineffective policies and have been hardest hit by Covid-19.
Where were the cost-benefit analyses? Today, after 2.5 years, no one, not one government has yet to do a cost-benefit analysis on any of the lockdown lunatic policies as well as a COVID gene injection. Can you understand what I just wrote? Not one cost-benefit analysis whereby they assess the risks/costs and benefits of each action and assess alternative courses of action. The Trump, Biden, Trudeau, Johnson, all governments failed to conduct just ONE, one cost-benefit, risk-benefit analysis. I want that to sink in, and still to today.
The present Covid-inspired forced lockdowns on business and school closures are and were counterproductive, were not sustainable and were, quite frankly, meritless and unscientific. They have been disastrous and just plain wrong! They killed people! There was no good reason for this. These unparalleled public health actions were enacted for a virus with an infection mortality rate (IFR) roughly similar (or likely lower once all infection data are collected) to seasonal influenza. Early on, Stanford’s John P.A. Ioannidis identified 36 studies (43 estimates) along with an additional 7 preliminary national estimates (50 pieces of data) and concluded that among people <70 years old across the world, infection fatality rates ranged from 0.00% to 0.57% with a median of 0.05% across the different global locations (with a corrected median of 0.04%). Let me write this again, 0.05%.
Can one even imagine the implementation of such draconian regulations for the annual flu? Of course not! Not satisfied with the well-documented failures of lockdowns, our leaders inexplicably doubled and tripled down and introduced or even hardened punitive lockdowns and constraints. They were locking us down ‘harder.’ Indeed, an illustration of the spurious need for these ill-informed actions is that they were being done in the face of clear scientific evidence showing that during strict prior societal lockdowns, school lockdowns, mask mandates, and additional societal restrictions, the number of positive cases went up! No one can point to any instance where lockdowns have worked in this Covid pandemic. Not one piece of evidence and a recent lockdown, school closure, mask mandate op-ed in Brownstone I wrote is declarative on the pure failures and destruction of the lockdown lunacy.
‘Lockdown was an extreme and unprecedented response to an ancient problem, the challenge of epidemic disease. It was also something else. It marked one of the gravest governmental failures of modern times. In a remarkably candid interview with The Spectator, Rishi Sunak has blown the gaff on the sheer superficiality of the decision-making process of which he was himself part. The fundamental rule of good government is not to make radical decisions without understanding the likely consequences. It seems obvious. Yet it is at that most basic level that the Johnson government failed. The tragedy is that this is only now being acknowledged.
First, the scientific advice was more equivocal and inconsistent than the government let on. Some of it was based on questionable premises that were never properly scrutinized. Some of it fell apart as soon it was challenged from outside the groupthink of the Sage advisory body. Second, to build support, the government stoked fear, embarking on a manipulative advertising campaign and endorsing extravagant graphics pointing to an uncontrolled rise in mortality if we were not locked down. Third, the government not only ignored the catastrophic collateral damage done by the lockdown but actively discouraged discussion of it, both in government and in its public messaging.’
I am saying that our governments killed us, killed people, our children, and I/we were telling them to stop the lockdown lunacy very early on. Yet these beasts were power drunk, these malfeasant technocrats, and could not stop. It was either ineptness or malfeasance. You decide.
I know they stole PPE and PPP and COVID relief money, we investigate that too and jail them who stole. I know CEOs of hospitals, medical doctors, congress people, senators, MPs, MPPs stole money, guaranteed…we just need to show it…that 200 billion missing in US as fraud COVID relief, do you think no politicians benefitted? In Canada too? Come on man!
so we take them into proper legal inquiries, proper public investigations, properly done, no kangaroo courts, no, everyone has a defense, and we let a jury and judges look at this and if it is shown they did wrong, that they were reckless and caused deaths, we take every cent they have and imprison them.
I will start with Trudeau, Kieran, Williams of Ontario, Jason Kenny of Alberta, Bonnie Henry of British Columbia, Doug Ford, CDC officials, Health Canada officials, PHAC officials Njoo and Tam, Fauci, Walensky, Redfield, Hahn, Bourla of Pfizer, Bancel of Moderna, top dog malfeasant Dr. Francis Collins of NIH (rushing to retire), all involved in Trump and Biden administration who enacted policies that caused lockdown lunacy deaths…all of them…we investigate properly, all of them that caused the deaths of our police and military, that laid off people and caused suicides…we investigate them properly, no rush to judgement, proper for all and if shown by juries that they caused people’s deaths, we imprison them for life!
