UK Government Scientist Admits Lockdown Was a “Monumental Mistake on a Global Scale”

A scientific advisor to the UK government says the coronavirus lockdown was a “panic measure” and a “monumental mistake on a global scale.”

Infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse acknowledged that the decision to lockdown in March was a “crude measure” that was enacted because “we couldn’t think of anything better to do.”

“Lockdown was a panic measure and I believe history will say trying to control Covid-19 through lockdown was a monumental mistake on a global scale, the cure was worse than the disease,” said Woolhouse, who is now calling on the government to unlock society before more damage is done.

“I never want to see national lockdown again,” he added. “It was always a temporary measure that simply delayed the stage of the epidemic we see now. It was never going to change anything fundamentally.”

Postmaster General Denies Democrat Allegations of Slowing Postal Service to Disrupt Mail-in Voting

The reforms faced by the United States Postal Service have received criticism from Democrats over allegations of "incompetence at best, criminality at worst" by the Trump-appointed postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, accused of deliberately slowing the work of the federal agency in attempts to disrupt voting by mail in the presidential election.

US Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, during a House Oversight Committee hearing on Monday titled "Protecting the Timely Delivery of Mail, Medicine, and Mail-in Ballots", denied allegations that his recent reforms to the US Postal Service (USPS) were made to disrupt mail-in balloting in the November presidential election.

Many of the claims were made by Democrats on Capitol Hill, who accuse DeJoy of "incompetence at best, criminality at worst" and blame him for slowdowns at the postal service.

‘Burn baby, burn!’: WATCH Portland protesters cheer after police precinct set ablaze on 88th night of rioting

Activists in Portland attempted to torch a police station and adjacent buildings in yet another night of chaotic unrest. The gathering was declared a riot following clashes with officers, resulting in some two dozen arrests.

A crowd of more than 200 people marched on the Portland Police Bureau’s (PPB) North Precinct on Sunday night, most clad in “armor, helmets, gas masks, all-black clothing” and carrying shields, police say. While officers kept a distance for the first portion of the protest, they responded with force after “individuals began throwing chunks of ceramic, rocks, and glass bottles in the direction of the officers,” and set fire to an awning of a building abutting the precinct.

Australia’s answer to Mao wants to extend his state of emergency for another YEAR. This should frighten anyone who values liberty

Victoria’s Dan Andrews has brought in some of the most draconian Covid-19 lockdown restrictions on the planet and now wants the right to keep them in place for a further 12 months. This public health tyranny needs to be stopped.

I regret to report that Melbourne’s answer to Mao Zedong has decided that he really rather enjoys being able to tell people exactly what they have to do and has no intention of stopping any time soon. Chairman, sorry, Premier Dan Andrews of Victoria is trying to railroad a bill through the legislature that would allow him to keep the current state of emergency going for another 12 months.

IAEA Chief Visits Tehran, Asks for Access to Former Sites

The sites in question are a pair of sites that the IAEA has claimed might have been nuclear sites, based on Israeli allegations and US backing of Israeli allegations. The US has pushed the IAEA to investigate the sites.

Iran did grant the IAEA access before, and it didn’t find anything definitive one way or another. They’ve kept asking for extra visits, even though Iran insisted neither was relevant to their nuclear program, and that letting them just keep visiting keeps it unresolved forever.

This puts things in an endless loop, where the US will ensure the IAEA keeps saying the issue is open, and Iran can’t resolve the matter outright, and has to just keep responding or be accused of a coverup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder what new strictures will be placed against Iran between now, and 18 October, when the UN ban on Iranian purchases of foreign weapons ends; I sense that in order to keep his numbers up, President Trump may well find a way of declaring war against someone; Iran is high on his list, I am sure, because very few Americans understand the history of this Middle Eastern country, and the role the US played in its subjugation, when the legitimately and democratically elected elected Prime Minister, Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, was overthrown and the Shah was empowered as Iran's ruler by the US' CIA.

I don't want to be Mrs. Chicken Little of Indiana 2020 here; but the stench of blood is in the air for me right now, and I am telling Mike that my "nesting instincts" are running at full tilt boogie right now.

And IF President Trump declares a "national emergency", he is fully within his FEMA designated capability of suspending the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

I am hoping and praying that I am completely wrong on this; but please remember the immortal words of George Carlin, who, in retrospect, was half comedian, half prophet; and note - for some of our more think-skinned readers, the obscenities might be a little much for you, but Carlin's observations in this monologue are bang spot-on:

We Like War!!

‘We’ll burn your store down too’: Kenosha rioters show no remorse when confronted over razing local businesses

Despite the deployment of National Guard troops to quell unrest, violence continued overnight in Kenosha, Wisconsin, with some desperate citizens forced to arm themselves and take matters into their own hands to defend the city.

Police deployed non-lethal munitions to disperse the crowds of protesters and looters late on Monday and into the early hours of Tuesday, in the second consecutive night of rioting since the police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake during an incident on Sunday.

Outrage as Pompeo Gives Convention Speech in Jerusalem: Critics say unacceptable to give political speech during official travel

As the mouthpiece of US foreign policy, the State Department isn’t meant to be a political body. That’s a growing issue today, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo used an official State Department visit to Jerusalem as an opportunity to deliver his speech to the Republican National Convention.

Critics say giving a political speech while on duty is inappropriate, and especially for the State Department. It’s not clear there is a specific law about this, however, as the State Department said they’d reviewed the speech and decided it didn’t cross lines.

Democratic groups said that in addition to going against historical acts by top US secretaries, that having the speech in Jerusalem risks making Israel a wedge issue politically. The Trump Administration is playing up moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is likely to be part of why it was chosen as a location for the speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears... that Pompeo has been taking graduate-level classes in hubris from his "very great friend", Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu.

And even though the deal between the UAE and Israel was supposed to stop the annexation process, Netanyahu has made it crystal clear that this process has not stopped, but has been put "on hold" one has to imagine for how long before it restarts, and when Palestinians are left again, stateless, homeless, and enduring cruel physical and emotional punishments from Israel on a daily basis.

For many years, I have warned both Hamas and Fatah on this blog, that if they couldn't get their act together, that whatever homeland they wound with would be smaller than Lichtenstein or Andorra; now, there will be no place for them to call their own, when the Israeli annexation machine starts rolling forward again, like an inescapable juggernaut.

The Kenosha Riots Prove It Can Happen Anywher

“Let the leftist cities burn,” some people say. Initially, I was one of them. However, the Cultural Revolution taking place isn’t stopping in Seattle or New York. According to the latest census data, Kenosha, Wisconsin’s population of 169,000 is 76 percent white and only 7 percent black. The city is prosperous, boasts a streetcar system despite its relatively small size, and has several museums and cultural attractions. It’s not Chicago, Baltimore, or Portland. Nonetheless, it was in flames last night because it’s impossible to enforce the law against blacks.

Police shot a black man, Jacob Blake. Video clearly shows Mr. Blake defying police orders and attempting to get into his car. Obviously, police did not know if Mr. Blake had a gun in the car or if he was going to run them down. Several tweets with the clip have already been taken down. It’s unclear whether Twitter did this or users did. The person who posted this clip says the shooting was unjustified. Judge for yourself.

China Arms Pakistan With 'Advanced Warships' As Threats Of Nuclear War With India Escalate

When the Trump administration withheld billions of dollars in security aid to Pakistan in 2018, the logic then was that the Pakistani military would be forced to form greater ties with the US and surrounding allies to reclaim lost aid.

Fast forward today, the new reality, Pakistan abandoned the West and its allies for China.

Pakistan quickly bolstered ties with China via billions of dollars in Belt and Road projects over the last two years. China has also provided the Pakistani military with aircraft, weaponry, and other advanced hardware. The cooperation between both countries has taken another giant leap as China just delivered the first of four "most advanced" warships to the Pakistani Navy, a move that will clearly upset India and the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was no "logic" to this decision to withhold aid; only immense stupidity and hubris, in not realizing that China would rush to fill the void with its own weapons; and in the immoral words of the American comedian Ron White: "You can't fix stupid!!"
