If former Vice President Joe Biden wins the presidency tonight, America will survive a “dark winter” of plant closures, financial hardship, psychological isolation and health problems unrelated to COVID-19, but which will kill more people than the virus itself.
When Biden said in the last debate that America is facing a “dark winter” because of COVID-19, he was creating the conditions for another, deeper shutdown.
By preparing us for a shutdown, Biden is following in the footsteps of his advisors – the panicked European leaders, the Democratic governors who imposed dictatorships in the health care system, and the public health system that enjoys its dictatorial supremacy.
Think first of the Biden advisors.
Ezekiel Emanuel has warned that we need “‘eight, 10, 12 weeks of really serious painful activities that restrict social activities and groups”.
In fact, the full extent of Emanuel’s call to pain is even more remarkable:
“So this is one thing: a nationwide lockdown, which will last eight weeks until we have a number of new cases in the order of two to three per 100,000. To repeat it once again: We have never sunk so low and somehow got through it nationwide.
“… we could not rush the reopenings. One of my biggest worries is that we don’t have to reopen covered bars and restaurants. This has been well documented as a disaster.
“You reopen them, and two to four weeks later you get these big dents in the cases. Just terrible. And the reason for this is that you get these dents because inside large crowds of people exhale for long periods of time.
“You scream at soccer games on TV or whatever you have. So one spreads the virus, to it indoor restaurants and indoor bars lead. I think it’s a serious, serious problem.”
Another consultant, Vivek Murthy, warned that we will not return to normality until 2022 at the earliest: “If the goal is to give life back some semblance of what it was before the pandemic, I don’t see that happening in 2021.
So, if you want to stay in the current chaos, have your schools closed, your businesses paralyzed, your life restricted and endure “really serious pain”, then the Biden Team is the team for you.
Besides Biden’s own advisors, there are the examples of liberal democratic governors who love to dictate people and destroy jobs. These include New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who welded the gate to a Jewish cemetery. Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has also threatened to call on the National Guard to prosecute restaurants that have no social distance (a National Guard he would not call to stop violence and looting in Chicago during the recent riots). California Governor Gavin Newsom is urging people to cancel Thanksgiving Day – and blocking the opening of public schools while his own children go to an elite private school. This is in the spirit of the Michigan government, Gretchen Whitmer, who has blocked all boat trips in the state except for her husband, who took the family boat.
Biden’s allies continue to show a strong penchant for using the government’s power to control individual citizens-including restricting churches and synagogues from holding services. It is easy to imagine that Biden has issued a nationwide ban on participation in religious or educational events.
The other examples of Biden come from Europeans who have panicked and closed their economies and communities for the second time. The economic cost to small businesses and the inconvenience and psychological damage caused by weeks of confinement have led to considerable resistance in Europe, which concludes that the political class is simply incompetent and does not meet people’s needs and feelings.
As a globalist who wants to be part of the world leadership elite, it would make sense for Biden to corner France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Britain.
In Britain, police are warning against searching houses with “too big” Christmas parties. The alliances of politicians with supposed public health experts create small dictatorships that eliminate almost all of our cherished rights.
President Trump captured the reality of the choice between courage and fear, optimism and pessimism, trust in the American people and confidence in the new police state mentality of the left at a weekend rally in Iowa:
“It’s a choice between a deadly Biden ban – or a safe vaccine that will end the pandemic.
“We have launched the largest mobilization since World War II. We are delivering breakthrough treatments that have reduced the mortality rate by 85 percent.
“Our excess mortality rate in America is 40 percent lower than in Europe.
“We will mass distribute the vaccine in just a few weeks – it will quickly eradicate the virus and eradicate the plague in China once and for all!
“Joe Biden promises to delay the vaccine and turn America into a prison state while he lets the rioters run free.
“If we had listened to Joe Biden when he allowed travel from China and Europe, hundreds of thousands more would have died.
“Now Biden wants a cruel, heartless, nationwide lockdown.
“Biden’s lockdown will claim countless lives and wipe out a whole generation of dreams.
“Europe has imposed draconian closures, yet their cases are exploding, their deaths are skyrocketing and their economy is in ruins – European closures are causing even more suffering, delayed medical care and financial devastation.
“A voice for Biden is a voice for closures, layoffs and misery.
We will find out on Tuesday night whether the American people prefer a lockdown or a calculated effort to develop a better response.
