Lockdown nationally & all we do is repress the virus:

creating a *third* wave

We go around in circles, while destroying our economy (costs lives)

Bite this bullet & front load the problem: track, test & shield the vulnerable (yes, I’ve lost family too)

“Lockdown doesn’t solve the problem, it defers it”

Mark Woolhouse, professor of infectious disease epidemiology at Edinburgh University, member of a UK the government SAGE subcommittee on “scientific pandemic influenza group on modelling”
Professor Woolhouse said that although a vaccine could be available in six months it was unlikely that it could be distributed en masse in the same period. He said: “I don’t see a way through this in the coming months and even years where we don’t have some restrictions.”
He said Sweden showed that the virus could be controlled without a strict lockdown and that restrictions needed to be sustainable.

“Listen to minority voices, you White Supremacist!” (shouting)

Genocide surviving female Muslim @UyghurCongress UK head @MahmutRahima:
“No leader except Trump has helped us”

“Silence! You White Supremacist!”(shouting, again)
““Looking to the United States, the Uighur diaspora is very worried. Many of us are fearful now that
Donald Trump
is leaving the White House. To most onlookers this will seem like heresy, but you have to try to put yourself in our shoes.”
“For years nobody stood up for us. The Obama administration: nothing. The David Cameron government: nothing. Angela Merkel: nothing. Theresa May: nothing. Trump? Under Trump, the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, pursued an aggressive line on China, which gave us hope.”

Remember when I said it was *difficult to ignore* reports that some Antifa were also involved in storming the Capitol?

Well.. BLM activist Jake Sullivan was arrested (dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9…).

In the video below he is heard with a freelance CNN journo celebrating the siege
That previous tweet of mine kicked off a campaign against me by centrist & other journalists/activists, united only by their Trump hatred. They are so blinded by hate for Trump that they stopped seeking truth, instead targeting those merely suggest we follow leads.

Do your jobs.
Here is the original tweet they tried to burn me at the stake for (as well as calling me a “conspiracy theorist” - which is the “transphobe”, which is the new “racist”, which is the new “Islamophobe”
- aka: let’s try to shut down all reasonable conversation)

Instead of attacking those of us raising it, why aren’t mainstream “liberal” journalists on here as outraged as we are about how many senior Democratic Party figures seem to have been compromised by Chinese spies?

Genocide is non-negotiable


See examples:
1) Dem Senator Feinstein’s staffer for 20 years outed as a Chinese spy
2) Dem Eric Swallwell caught in a female Chinese spy’s snare:

Bombshell warning to Boris Johnson from powerful Tories: lift lockdown soon or face leadership threat
Soon, many people will regret being so harsh on some of us who fought this fight

“I can see clearly now the rain has gone” 🎵🎶

“it is imperative you equip the Chief Whip today with your opinion that debate will become about the PM’s leadership if the Government does not set out a clear plan for when our full freedoms will be restored with a guarantee that this strategy will not be used again next winter”
“Government has adopted a strategy devoid of any commitment to liberty without any clarification about when our most basic freedoms will be restored and with no guarantee that they will never be taken away again."

Thank you @unherd & @Perez_Writes for braving a more nuanced conversation about race in America, with the Proud Boys’ rather dark-skinned Cuban-American leader from the Hispanic-dominated city of Miami, as your case in point:
“The idea that anyone in Miami is thinking about white supremacy is preposterous; to someone like Tarrio, the “spectre of whiteness” — or any other concept used by the Left to explain American race relations — is completely foreign.”
“Steeped in this culture, a figure like Tarrio, despite all his petty idiocy, has a more acute understanding of American racial dynamics than any African-American Studies major from an elite institution.”
