No Science In Lockdowns

It’s become increasingly obvious that we don’t follow the science when it comes to lockdowns. In some areas, there are more cases of COVID-19 now than when lockdowns were enforced. What it sadly comes down to is political expediency, because we actually don’t know if lockdowns work. They’re different in every country and, truth is, we haven’t really defined it, haven’t studied it and haven’t measured it.

“Follow the science has become a euphemism for follow the leader, do what you’re told and don’t question it,” says David Freiheit of Viva Frei. So, Frei says, are we really using this euphemism to divide people and see who cooperates and who doesn’t? Freiheit was among a panel of experts on The Rubin Report with Dave Rubin, joining Dr. Drew Pinsky and Dr. Zubin Damania.

Interestingly, there’s actually a well-hidden history of lockdowns in the United States. In a story that was documented in The New York Times, a 14-year-old science student in Albuquerque, N.M., built a computer model to reduce the spread of influenza. She determined that you could close down local schools and reduce the spread. Her father, a computer programmer at Los Alamos National Laboratory, took it a step further and said he could actually use the idea to build a model for regional lockdowns in a pandemic. Surprisingly, the George W. Bush Administration adopted the model as policy. Dr. Pinsky says the model is absent from textbooks and science papers and it wasn’t until the Chinese Communist Party actually implemented the model that it was something no one thought they would ever do.

Here’s more discussion on lockdowns, COVID-19, mortality rates and legal issues on The Rubin Report. ”

I Want To Trigger You

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of “Prey”, about how woke culture is destroying classical liberalism, how elites are finally acknowledging that immigration in Europe is backfiring, and how immigration policies in Europe have negatively impacted women’s rights and made Europe less safe for women. In this clip Ayaan talks about how liberalism is being weakened by the identity politics of the woke left.

She shares why James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose’s book “Cynical Theories” is so vital to understanding our current political climate. She also discusses how wokeism has far more in common with radical Islam than many would think. Both engage in science denial, and the censorship of criticism.

She suggests that the only way to defend liberalism is to build alliances with centrist and moderate political opponents and create a new centrism. She states that young people should not be seeking out safe spaces at university, but should actually want to be triggered.

This is the first of a two-part series. We will run the conclusion later this week.

 

Where’s The Unity?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued the Democrat Party’s unusual push for unity by calling Republicans the enemy. That ought to go a long way in healing our country!

Speaking at her weekly press briefing, Pelosi said they are looking to add more security to the House of Representatives because the “enemy is within.” She also doubled down on the impeachment of President Trump and flung some choice zingers at freshman Congresswoman from Georgia Marjorie Taylor Greene. I guess Nervous Nancy never received the memo of unity from the White House.
