With Joe Biden in office, all of a sudden, the lockdown narrative is flipped on its head

With President-elect Joe Biden about to take office, there appears to be a major shift taking place in the coronavirus narrative.

This past week, Newsweek published a study that found that mandatory lockdowns are no more effective than voluntary measures. 

The findings

According to Newsweek, the peer-reviewed study was published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation on January 5th.

What researchers at the University of Stanford did was compared countries that implemented mandatory lockdowns – including England, Germany, Spain, Iran, Italy, Netherlands, France, and the United States – with countries that did not implement such lockdowns – namely, South Korea and Sweden.

What the researchers found was that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country.”

The researchers hastened to add that “we do not question the role of all public health interventions, or of coordinated communications about the epidemic, but we fail to find an additional benefit of stay-at-home orders and business closures.”

It’s almost too good to be true

Not long after the release of this study, two of America’s most ardent lockdown supporters actually appeared to have a change of heart.

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) tweeted this week. “The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. we must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.”

Similarly, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is reported as saying that restaurants and bars need to be allowed to reopen “as quickly as possible.”

Biden’s latest plan

While all this was going on, Biden revealed his “American Rescue Plan,” a $1.9 trillion dollar coronavirus relief package that includes direct cash payments of $1,400, extended unemployment, rent relief, food assistance, aid to small businesses, and the keeping of essential frontline workers on the job. Biden is also pushing for a mask mandate and for an improved vaccination rate.

Many have argued that the coronavirus was used as a political weapon against President Donald Trump. That has been made clear by the narrative that has been pushed over the past year. Just as clear is how this narrative is going to end: with Joe Biden as America’s savior.

To some extent, you have to give the Democrats credit. If Republicans were this good at politics, then we probably wouldn’t be sitting on the sidelines for at least the next two years. The only question now is whether America is going to accept this conclusion to the left’s coronavirus narrative. We’ll see.

  1. The American people are so naïve. And this is how stupid they are. They believe the bs on the news. Also so gullible they fall into hating Mr. Trump who has fought so hard for the people. And worst of all they let the donkeys and the elephants take us away from what is important. Our creator. Shame on all of us who did not vote for Trump. Now we have a pedophile and a slut in the white house. Thanks to you stupid FOOLS.

      1. Not stupidity! Evil! Dems have planned and paid for and worked hard to get to this point! I imagine there is a decent percentage of voters who kept their head in the sand because they didn’t want to know the truth! Sickening how many did not know about Hunter Biden’s laptop or his family’s enrichment schemes with other countries! Sad and disgusting! Pray unceasingly! They are coming after Christians with all powers they have!

    1. Yeah, going to take America down, down until it is a third world country❗Just what you voters wanted. Clueless❗☠

    2. Right on all counts. Blame the communist paid news agencies and college profs who are paid to indoctrinate our kids. Shut down the crooked news agencies asap and get rid of the Trump haters in critical agencies like the FBI , CIA ,etc who have been bought by Soros money. If we need a revolution, bring it on- we have the guns!

  2. Unacceptable for this reason. Any mandate that interferes with the Constitution, to be more precise Ex parte Milligan the moment Xiden issues that he loses the Presidency if he ever has it.

  4. I VOTED FOR TRUMP BOTH TIMES & WILL VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN. W/ LYING, EVIL, China LOVING TRAITOR Joe Biden ALREADY SOLD US & NOW WE HAVE A HUGE ,MAJOR BATTLE/WAR TO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM!!

    1. I’m with you Rose. I’m for Trump. He survived a 4 year witch hunt and was still able to put some amazing statistics. No telling what things would have had he had cooperation. Andy

  5. It really isn’t what the Gov says we have to do, it is if people will do it. I wear mine everywhere I go but I see others in the stores, etc without a mask. And just my opinion but I think some money should go to research and checking for diseases at the borders before letting anyone in. Of course, they never ever told us how this virus first got into our country or any country but that should be checked out.

    1. As much cross hatch chemicals in the sky, wonder if some of the Covid was spread on purpose here as well as that from Wuhan Lab to the world?

      1. I believe so. China was furious with Trump demanding they pay their fair share. Since they already had Biden in their pocket, Trump spoiled their fun. It has been confirmed the virus was developed in their lab, so why do you think they did that. It wasn’t to help people. It was to destroy America and if other countries hit hit – too bad.

      2. Dale, I have been saying the same thing, China gave us some crazy story about bats that some how were infected with Covid, then later when someone spilled the beans & said it was lab created etc. Democrats fighting Trump left & right that what really happened didn’t. I also think they keep reinfecting us some how, now with a different strain, just not adding up. At this point I think China & the criminal Democratic would do anything to keep us under their thumb.

  6. The pandemic was a gift from heaven for joe biden. The cards fell in the right place and sleepy joes sure to take office January 20 . If he was held to the same standards as the republicans could get elected dog catcher election was stolen media had his back but will he last are will thing’s turn and kamala have to save the country. As for Pelosi shes to old term limits are need and maybe Ivanka will be elected in 2024 and the liberals will have a stroke.

  7. This is why 666 will be so easy to implement when that finally becomes reality. The sheep that allowed this election to be stolen and for politics in general to run south, will follow in line to the slaughter.

  8. One has be be wary of the phantom stranger coming and bearing gifts, which will likely be taken away by other means !!!! Specially these days in Washington, DC (District Of Corruption) !!!

  9. How amazing that the idiots in blue states realize that lockdowns don’t work or make a difference. And gee after Trump leaves office. Something still smells in the democratic party. What other things will they take credit for that Trump has said all along. Could be to late for some of those blue cities and states. I am sure they will want the rest of us to bail them out. What a democratic farce.

  10. Call it obstruction- Pelosi played games to get liberal pork and payoffs of favors to other countries ‘playing’ the American people The $600 payoff to people was just a ruse after the President said $2000. Pelosi lately admitted playing politics until Biden is president. Think of it as a patch to fool the people, denying them of needed money for political purposes while trying to make the Dems look like it was that idea and of course add payoffs to other countries and pork not related to Covid in with their package, unobstructed with a total Dem run government that NEVER WILL ALLOW anyone not part and parcel to the New World Order agenda.

    I noticed she went down from the original $3 Trillion+ to $2 Trillion but put so much pork and Dem payoffs in it McConnell rejected it. She never intended to allow Trump to get any credit and wanted to grab it for herself and the Dem party — playing sucker with the people. Talks went back and forward with her never having any intention to comply while selling the idea the Repubs were the obstacle. Then the rat admitted it later. What a scumbag action.
