Coronavirus lockdowns have ‘destroyed millions of livelihoods’ but failed to alter the course of the pandemic given many US states have seen lower infection rates after easing restrictions, a JP Morgan study has claimed.

The statistical analysis has raised questions about the effectiveness of the lockdowns put in place across much of the United States two months ago to stop the spread of COVID-19.

It suggests that the lockdown measures have not only resulted in economic devastation but could have also resulted in more COVID-19 deaths.

The strict stay-at-home measures put in place by the governors of most states in mid-March has so far seen nearly 39 million American lose their jobs and forced businesses to close.

  1. It was never about the epidemic–if it ever even existed. It was about Leftist mayors and governors seeing a chance to flex their muscles, and give the normies a taste of what it’s going to be like when the Left consolidates power and brings us “scientific Marxist-Leninism.” It was about picking up a political bludgeon. (“Never let a crisis go to waste!”)

    Consider the upcoming elections, in which they have already admitted a three hundred year history of secret ballots will be discarded in favor of mail-in ballots, most of which I am already guessing will be pre-filled, with the names of dead people and people who never existed, voting the straight Democrat ticket. Those who dare to vote for Republicans will no doubt be shocked to find the day after Election Day that their mail-in ballots have been scanned and posted to Reddit and Tumblr with a request that the local Antifa kiddies drop by for a nice friendly talk about “diversity,” bring your own bike locks and Molotovs, please.

    Is someone in the Peanut Gallery already reaching for his keyboard, to type in an impassioned response that this is a “conspiracy theory?” “I trust Valerie Jarrett and George Soros. They would NEVER do something like that!”

    At this point the Wubonic Plague is a minor, almost forgotten detail. If they could have ginned up this much artificial mass hysteria about “global warming,” or the endangered lesser spotted tookie-tookie bird, or “racism,” or “terrorism,” or invisible dancing pink unicorns, or ghosts, it would have all been just the same. A Congolese-style penis-theft mass panic would have done just as well–and maybe they’ll try that one for the 2022 midterms.

    • You’re on the right path, brother. Let’s assume you’re referring to leftist mayors and governors in the sense of command and control, centralized massive government leftism. Otherwise I’ll advise you to begin taking this point of view in your observation of developing events. Don’t forget that practically every single state – red or blue – has instituted these Orwellian power grabs to varying degrees. (As an aside, any fact gatherers got a lockdown roll call by state? I’ve only heard that Arkansas didn’t go for it.) The republican party and so called conservatives are coolies for the would be revolutionary right. They cave in to the so called left on every single issue, but wait 5 minutes before doing so. The only thing they’ve ever managed to conserve is unlimited funding for Israel. And on the flip side the Democrats and liberals are coolies for the dispossessed working class, selling them out for globalist economics and decadent, degenerate identity politics. It’s a false dichotomy designed to channel your dissent into the useless farce called democracy. Preston is correct in denouncing electoralism. It becomes difficult to parse the facts at hand when the meaning of terms is constantly shifting. (This is also by design.) But I get where you’re coming from with your vitriol for the left, that is monoculturalists and globalists instituting a one world government and their henchmen and lackeys. It’s not on it’s way some day in the future. It’s here now, but they’re just getting started. I’m all aboard the conspiracy train with you. Just remember that the establishment right does not embody the ideas pejoratively applied to it by the establishment left. The conservatives are [new] leftists too. They just don’t know it. Forget the side show of democratic electoralist pseudo-power struggle. There is not and never will be a stop-the-globalist-takeover party to vote for. Conceding to representation is an instant defeat. “Opposition is collaboration.” The leftists want their enemies to vote for Republicans because it’s worse than meaningless. It’s actually just second hand support. Reclaim your own power by refusing to surrender it to political charlatans. Secessionism is taking power into your own hands. Embrace the anarch, -ism optional. It’s a big umbrella, and some of the folks under it are admittedly disgusting and/or morons, but we all need every ally we can get. Ropes Not Votes (Tm).
