To follow up Using COVID-19 as a cover story, what other previously unacceptable agendas are now in play?
1. The United Nations is using COVID-19 to advocate a global 10% tax. From the March 27, 2020, document at https://www.un.org/sites/un2.un.org/files/sg_report_socio-economic_impact_of_covid19.pdf:
“A large-scale, coordinated and comprehensive multilateral response amounting to at least 10 per cent of global GDP is needed now more than ever.”
Sound familiar? What happened to using climate change as the cover story to take away money and property? That hasn’t gone away – just add another 10% to the price of the power grab.
2. Here’s one report of likely consequences from “nonessential” businesses being shut down in a county where the state hadn’t yet taken that action:
“Knox County, Tennessee saw nine deaths by suicide within 48 hours this week as doomsday predictions over the novel Wuhan coronavirus panics an already anxious public and leaves millions unemployed and isolated. As of this writing, [March 27] more people have died from suicide in Knox County than people have from the virus in the entire state, where there have been 6 fatalities from the disease.
The county’s suicides over the span of two days this week equates to about 10 percent of last year’s total where 83 lives were lost to suicide.”
Have there been other reports comparing suicide numbers with COVID-19 numbers?
3. What are other consequences of taking away people’s livelihoods by “essential” becoming defined by governments?
The place where I live has city jobs for mowing the grass – because only public employees can do that work? I saw a team of them mowing median strips last week while others with “nonessential” livelihoods were forced to stay inside by the state.
Were city and state income taxes, property taxes, food sales taxes, utility, petroleum, and other taxes suspended? No, regardless of whether the state had forced the loss of income. People who had “nonessential” jobs and businesses are still on the hook for state and city spending, and “essential” people’s salaries, benefits, and pensions.
4. Where’s the evidence that COVID-19 poses such a monumental threat that it warrants shutting down businesses and surrendering all our liberties? Is there any historical evidence that governments have completely relinquished powers of this magnitude?
Are these attempts to make most people dependent upon government and accept subjugation? Will Part II be governments granting themselves even more powers with a cover story such as they will restore the order that they destroyed?
How can we swat them away before they infect us with their diseases? Better yet, how can we act like my traveling companion’s picture of a praying mantis protecting her against blood-sucking pests?
