Dr. Anthony Fauci says that the nation must endure up to 15 additional months of torture even if there’s a vaccine released in the coming months:
Dr. Anthony Fauci just spilled the beans: contrary to the implicit promise numerous politicians made that COVID-19 restrictions would only last “until there’s an effective vaccine,” Fauci says the arrival of a vaccine won’t mean life will return to normal, perhaps for more than a year.
“If you’re talking about getting back to a degree of normality which resembles where we were prior to COVID, it’s going to be well into 2021, maybe even towards the end of 2021,” said the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on Friday.
A safe and effective vaccine produced this quickly would be a stunning scientific accomplishment that could save thousands of lives. But Fauci warned that widespread distribution and getting “the majority, or more, of the population vaccinated and protected” won’t happen until perhaps the end 2021, and therefore means we cannot be free from oppressive lockdown measures until at least that point.
You miserable bastards think you’re just gonna go back to normal after only six months of lockdown? Well ol’ Fauci has news for you: you worthless peons are gonna be locked down for another 15 months.
Remember in 2016, when Trump was campaigning, the President of Mexico went on a profanity-laced tirade against Trump and the wall, and Trump’s response was “The wall just got 10 feet higher”?
That’s how Fauci is with the lockdowns: “Oh, you pieces of shit want to complain about the lockdowns? You want to go back to normal? Well guess what: the lockdown just got a year longer.”
However, I don’t believe this will actually happen. Maybe the diabolical Fauci wants it to happen, but he’s about to get overruled. Here’s my reasoning:
- Trump is going to be reelected, and when he is, he can give Fauci the boot and replace him with someone who actually has his head screwed on straight. Anyone who thinks it’s even remotely acceptable to keep the country under pandemic restrictions for nearly two full years does not belong in a position of power. It’s simply unacceptable.
- The politicians who are in control of the shut down orders will find little use for the virus after the election is over, and I’m sure they’ll be changing their tune after November 3. This national freakout over the coronavirus has been largely election year politicking and media-driven fearmongering, and once the election happens, the politicians in charge will probably see little benefit to keeping the Covid restrictions in place.
- If anything, they’ll be compelled to lift the restrictions and get things “back to normal” ASAP. Eventually, even the most bluepilled, brainwashed Fake News Believers (you know, the idiots that wear masks while driving by themselves) will decide that enough is enough. Maintaining Covid restrictions will become a political liability at some point in the near future, and that’s when we can expect the politicians to change their tune.
People are just not going to tolerate this for much longer. Once the politicians start to feel like there’s no upside to keeping the restrictions in place, they’ll vanish faster than they were imposed.
Plus, we just got some wonderful news today out of Pennsylvania: a federal judge has ruled the state’s shutdown orders to be unconstitutional:
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A federal judge on Monday struck down Gov. Tom Wolf’s pandemic restrictions that required people to stay at home, placed size limits on gatherings and ordered “non-life-sustaining” businesses to shut down, calling them unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV sided with plaintiffs that included hair salons, drive-in movie theaters, a farmer’s market vendor, a horse trainer and several Republican officeholders who sued as individuals.
Stickman, an appointee of President Donald Trump, wrote in his ruling that the Wolf administration’s pandemic policies have been overreaching, arbitrary and violated citizens’ constitutional rights.
The governor’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus “were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency,” Stickman wrote. “But even in an emergency, the authority of government is not unfettered.”
Courts had consistently rejected challenges to Wolf’s power to order businesses to close during the pandemic, and many other governors, Republican and Democrat, undertook similar measures as the virus spread across the country.
Wolf has lifted many of the restrictions since the lawsuit was filed in May, allowing businesses to reopen and canceling a statewide stay-at-home order. But his administration has maintained capacity restrictions and limitations on alcohol sales at bars and restaurants. The state has also imposed a gathering limit of more than 25 people for events held indoors and more than 250 people for those held outside.
If things don’t start opening up soon, expect more and more lawsuits like this. Thankfully, Trump has been stocking the federal judiciary with judges like Stickman, so we should expect more ruling like the one in Pennsylvania. The precedent has been established.
Eventually I’m sure this will end up before the Supreme Court to decide the matter for good, nationwide. However, I’m not sure that this is a good thing considering Chief Justice Roberts has gone full swamp and basically become a Democrat.
But people are going to turn against the lockdowns in due time.
I apologize for not keeping up with the blog the past several days, but I’ve been sick lately and haven’t been up to the task. It turned out to be Covid, funny enough.
Now that I have actually had the virus and know what it’s like, it has only made me more adamant that this is all bullshit and we need to return to normal immediately.
I had the flu last year and it was significantly worse than Covid. The worst of my symptoms only lasted a few days, and honestly once I started taking ibuprofen, I felt much, much better almost to the point of not feeling sick at all.
Covid is the flu. I’ve had both, and I can tell you with confidence: Covid is the flu.
Maybe not for old people, but for the vast majority of Americans, Covid is no different than the flu. And it is completely unacceptable to treat it like anything else. We don’t shut the country down for flu season, and we shouldn’t have shut the country down for this.
This is not something we need to shut the entire country down over. The end of 2021 is completely out of the question. There will be a full-blown revolt if that is the case, and there should be.
