A second lockdown of the United States, put into place in January of 2021, would in all likelihood occur when the U.S. epidemic is long past its expiration date.
When it comes to COVID-19, Joe Biden wants to double down on the failed policies of lockdown and mask mandates, whose advocates cannot point to a single place in the world where these policy initiatives have worked to fight the novel coronavirus. Despite this reality, thanks to the corporate press, pharmaceutical giants’ snake oil salesmen, a corrupt “public health expert” class, and tyrannical politicians, many citizens remain under the impression that lockdowns and mask mandates help against the virus. And the Biden campaign appears to be weaponizing this reality.
In an interview with ABC Friday, Biden told anchor David Muir: “I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists.”

“I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving, until we control the virus,” he added. “That is the fundamental flaw of this administration’s thinking to begin with. In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus.”
The shutdown pledge comes on the heels of Biden’s speech at the Democratic convention last night, during which he called for a universal mask mandate.

If you’re a regular reader of The Mass Illusion, you know by now that there is no “controlling” or “fixing” the virus through non pharmaceutical interventions. Biden’s “fundamental flaw” is that he appears to be under the spell of the Illusion of Control, and he’s receiving advice from a global “public health expert” class that are salivating at the opportunity to once again lock down the nation and double down on their failed ideas.
I can go on for days about the destructive nature of lockdowns, which, by the way, do nothing to help a nation deal with a pandemic. There isn’t even a minute benefit to lockdowns related to the virus. Lockdowns *only* add negative implications to the situation. We already have the global data on lockdowns of all levels and circumstances, and It’s very clear that they fail to prevent infections or “stop the spread.” In some places, they temporarily delayed infections. In other areas, such as New York City, the lockdown measures put in place may have actually accelerated the epidemic. The 5 worst countries in terms of deaths per million (Belgium, Peru, Spain, the UK, and Italy) all put their citizens through brutal lockdowns. The lockdowns did nothing to curb the virus. In Europe, only after achieving the herd immunity threshold did infections begin to level off.
Remember, lockdown policies were first purposed with ensuring that healthcare systems had the capacity to deal with a sudden surge in coronavirus infections. And this was because many were under the impression that the virus was much more lethal than it actually is. It turns out that infection fatality rate for the novel coronavirus is only about 0.2%. Lockdowns were never intended as a long term solution. Even the doomsday salesman who sold lockdowns as a response acknowledged that they would be a temporary solution to lighten the burden, while we proceeded on a path to herd immunity.
Sadly, it is at this point virtually guaranteed that more people will have died in the United States as a result of lockdowns than Americans who will have died from COVID-19. The “cure” is infinitely worse than the disease.
So dose our would be Dictator plan to send the UN Blue Helmets in the make sure his orders are obeyed by the rest of us? Biden needs to Leave America and take his filthy Democrat Party with him
yepper, the a**hole is clueless on the economic impact it would have. he would shut down the country, churches and temples but not mosques, and continued supporting rioting, supporting black terrorist movement and antifu**-up looting cities.
slut hillary suffers from PD dementia (Parkinson’s) but paedophile joey has advancing AD.
The puppet master putting these words in Biden’s mouth knows exactly what a mask mandate and total lockdown would do to our economy.
Globalists have wanted Americans to just make burgers for each other and stock market shelves, and tend to their own sick and dying.
They prefer all production be done elsewhere.
Destroying our economy would be a FEATURE not a BUG that would suit their desires perfectly.
Obama had us on a glide path to this, outlawing paper production, lumber production, fishing in oceans, family farming, etc.
Had Hillary won we would be this service economy already, using products from China, shoddy products.
These morons talk about following the “science” and shutting down the economy but talk about the massive unemployment as if it is some phenomenon caused by Trump’s economic policies. They have no idea what the effect of strangling the economy actually is. They just talk.
The Democrat Donkey is running off a Cliff and the Vultures cant wait
