Madness in Melbourne

Madness in Melbourne --1984 dystopian language: billboards everywhere saying 'Staying apart keeps us together.' Have they gone mad? | 04 Aug 2020 |

  • Can't go more than 3 miles from your home.
  • Weddings are illegal.
  • No gatherings of any size.
  • Army is on the streets fining/arresting people.
  • "Since March 21, a total of 193,740 spot checks have been conducted by police across Victoria."

...Now there are big worries in Melbourne. The Premier has imposed a vicious police state without precedent in this country's history. His name is Dan Andrews (a sweet-sounding name that masks the tyrant he has become), and he tweets out pictures of empty streets to brag about what he has achieved in the name of suppressing a virus... This is lockdown ideology at work. It is tyranny without limit, at the expense of all human dignity, decency, and rights. The politicians make a desert and call it health. And yet, meanwhile, in Australia since March, there have been six times as many deaths from suicide than from Covid-19. Like everywhere else on the planet, Melbourne will have to reach herd immunity from C-19 at some point. Those who deny that are risking not only liberty and health but civilization itself. Perhaps the other states in Australia will observe the destruction in Victoria and learn to take another path when the virus first arrives in their territory, as it surely will. Lockdowns are not science; they are brutality.

Seattle City Council approves plan to defund police department, slashes jobs and salaries

Seattle City Council approves plan to defund police department, slashes jobs and salaries | 10 Aug 2020 | The Seattle City Council voted Monday to move forward with a controversial proposal that would begin the process of defunding the police department.

The plan would ultimately slash funding to the department but not the 50% some had sought. Seattle currently has around 1,400 police officers, and the current plan would see about 100 cut. It was also cut the police department's $400 million budget by about $3 million, according to KOMO.

Major U.S. Health Insurers Report Big Profits, Benefiting From the Pandemic

Major U.S. Health Insurers Report Big Profits, Benefiting From the Pandemic | 05 Aug 2020 | The nation's leading health insurers are experiencing an embarrassment of profits. Some of the largest companies, including Anthem, Humana and UnitedHealth Group, are reporting second-quarter earnings that are double what they were a year ago. And while insurance profits are capped under the Affordable Care Act, with the requirement that consumers should benefit from such excesses in the form of rebates, no one should expect an immediate windfall. But the amounts that insurers are retaining have caught the attention of the Trump administration. The Health and Human Services Department advised companies to consider speeding up rebates, and on Tuesday suggested that they reduce premiums to help consumers through the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.

Witnesses Convinced that Cuomo Is Intentionally Hiding Actual Number of Nursing Home Deaths

Witnesses Convinced that Cuomo Is Intentionally Hiding Actual Number of Nursing Home Deaths | 05 Aug 2020 | The New York State Assembly and Senate gave New York Health Commissioner [Murderer] Howard Zucker plenty of chances to tell them the number of nursing home residents who have died from COVID, but all he could muster was that he'd "get back" to them... As Democrat James Skoufis noted, even California has managed to share that statistic. He said it "perplexes" him that Zucker couldn't be just as forthcoming. The catalyst for Monday's hearing was Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home mandate back on March 25 that ordered facilities to accept COVID patients who had been discharged from hospitals. Families who have lost someone in a New York nursing home the past few months have no doubt in their mind that Cuomo's dangerous policy put their loved ones in the grave...Zucker didn't stick around to hear testimony from folks who were directly affected by the administration's order. If he had stayed, he would have heard some horrifying tales.

Mail-in voting update: Due to massive postal failures, New York will count many mailed-in ballots even if they're not postmarked by the deadline, or postmarked at all

Mail-in voting update: Due to massive postal failures, New York will count many mailed-in ballots even if they're not postmarked by the deadline, or postmarked at all --Six weeks after the primary, no result | 04 Aug 2020 | A federal judge ruled Monday that approximately 1,000 absentee ballots that were not postmarked by the deadline -- if they were even postmarked at all -- must be counted in a New York congressional primary that still hasn't been decided after six weeks, according to The New York Times.

Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y) appears to have beaten challenger Suraj Patel in the Democratic primary for New York's 12th congressional district, but her current margin over Patel is only 3,700 votes, and there are more than 12,000 disputed ballots. Judge Analisa Torres of Federal District Court in Manhattan ruled that 1,000 of the disputed ballots must be counted after failures by the postal service have undermined the election and delayed a final result by nearly two months.
