Phase One of Virginia Reopening Will Not Take Two Years, Claims Governor's Office: Why Should We Believe Him?

An uproar occurred this weekend regarding comments made by the State Health Commissioner regarding Phase One of reopening the Commonwealth of Virginia from the lockdown ordered by Governor Ralph "Blackface" Northam due to the COVID-19 outbreak (Richmond Times-Dispatch).
On Friday, Gov. Ralph Northam presented Phase One of lifting public restrictions in Virginia that would include a continuation of social distancing, remote work and wearing masks in public. 
Though the reopening outline of Phase One did not include a time frame, State Health Commissioner Norman Oliver told the Times-Dispatch on Friday that he thought Phase One would be in effect until a treatment or vaccine became available, which he predicted could be "a two-year affair." 
Saturday morning, the Health Department clarified Oliver's statements, saying that producing a vaccine, a process that can take 12-18 months to be developed and tested, could take two years — not Phase One. 
Without a vaccine or treatment, the health department said public health experts will have to monitor and contain the coronavirus through testing, contact tracing — figuring out who a COVID-19 positive patient has been in contact with — and quarantining those affected. 
"In the meantime we can safely ease restrictions in a phased approach," said a VDH spokesperson on Saturday. "Although we have no expectation that Phase One of this approach will last two years, some level of social distancing will have to continue until we have a treatment or a vaccine for the disease."
Originally, Virginia had a target date to reopen April 24, but Northam extended his executive order to May 8th.

So, the health office made a clarification. Big deal, why should we believe them? Especially when the Commonwealth is being run by a guy who changed his story one day from the next regarding if he was the person who either wore blackface or a KKK outfit in his college yearbook, or how he had been given the nickname "Coonman" at Virginia Military Institute.

Northam has been vague about the timeline to reopen and shows reluctance to give businesses the option to reopen with social distance guidelines, as Georgia and South Dakota has. I wouldn't be surprised if he's planning to announce this coming week he is moving the reopen date once again, to later in May or June. As I mentioned the other day, these blue-state officials keep wanting to move the goalposts, from "flattening to curve" to "we need more testing" or "we need a vaccine."

It's easy for him and Health Commissioner Norman Oliver to play games with the lives of Virginians, because they are still getting a paycheck. These liberals show they are more concerned about ruling their constituents and denying us our liberties. See how the disgraced Northam has used the lockdown to end the requirement of ID to vote, as well as sign restrictions on our Second Amendment right.

The question is, will the citizens of the Commonwealth keep taking this?

Our Hateful, Corrupt Media Is Harming America with Its Coronavirus Coverage

In any type of emergency, natural disaster, or out of the ordinary situation, it is important for a functioning civil society to have information provided to them that is largely accurate and informative information to allow the ability to make rational decisions for themselves.

Our modern news media, for the most part, have abandoned their role of providing (as any journalism student is/or was once taught) the “five Ws” (who, what, where, when, why), and instead have become corrupt purveyors of opinion, false news, and conspiracy theories masqueraded as “objective news.” It has become worse during the recent COVID-19 outbreak, as the media have engaged in the “fake news” they’ve regularly been called out for over the last four years: a selective reporting of facts, studies, and misquotes (especially from President Donald Trump) that result in pessimism and panic.

Take yesterday, at the President’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing, as the Corrupt Media has been attacking the President for claiming that people affected with COVID-19 can inject themselves or drink bleach to kill the virus.

But this is not true (Legal Insurrection
Then Trump said this (emphasis mine):
So, I’m going to ask Bill a question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So, supposing when we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it. And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that, so that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me. So, we’ll see, but the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute. That’s pretty powerful. 
If Trump did not include the “or almost a cleaning” then yes I could see how people would think he meant an actual injection. Even then, come on, people. Use your freaking brain. 
But ABC News reporter Jon Karl asked Bryan if there is any “scenario that could be injected into a person.” 
Of course, Bryan said they “don’t do that within that lab at our labs.” 
Trump then clarified his remarks because people are stupid:
“It wouldn’t be through injections, you’re talking about almost a cleaning and sterilization of an area. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t work, but it certainly has a big affect if it’s on a stationary object.”
Sound familiar? It should. Remember when the same media blamed the President for the death of an Arizona man for drinking fish tankcleaner, after Trump had mentioned chloroquine as a “game changer” in treating the virus? The problem is, the President didn’t tell people to drink fish tank cleaner, and, there were other facts in the story that were only uncovered by others (noted here at Red State). But the Corrupt Media wasn’t interested, they did their damage and now it was time for them to move onto other dastardly deeds.

Such as with the prescriptions of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine drugs, which Democrats in some areas are forbidding doctors to prescribe and the media continues to attack with distorted information (TheFederalist).
In a Facebook post, the New York Times wrote the two anti-malaria drugs can cause dangerous side effects and should be used cautiously, yet Trump is touting the drugs.
“Breaking News: The FDA warned that two anti-malaria drugs can cause dangerous side effects and should be used cautiously. President Donald J. Trump has touted the drugs,” the post reads. 
What the newly released FDA memo actually says is that they are reiterating that the side effects for coronavirus patients who take hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are the exact same for patients who take the drugs to treat malaria, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis. So even though the drugs are FDA-approved for treating malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, but not yet FDA-approved for treating COVID-19, the potential side effects for all of the above types of patients are the same.
Similarly, contrast the way the Corrupt Media has attacked the (Republican) governors of South Dakota and Georgia for beginning the reopening of businesses in their states to the way the media covers (with a tear in their eye) government workers losing pay during a government shut down. But when small business owners or private sector employees are losing their jobs, they are attacked by the media and liberal politicians like Andrew the Pius II Cuomo.

Or, early in the COVID-19 crisis when Fake News CNN attackedthe President as a bigot because his coronavirus task force wasn’t too diverse enough.

Or when the NY Times misquoted the President, claiming he told state governors they were “on their own?”

The media have abused their First Amendment freedom of the press in a manner that is harming America, especially in the middle of a public health crisis. They have spent the last three-and-a-half years crying “WOLF!” over a fifth-rate conspiracy theory about Trump/Russia collusion to rig the 2016 Election. Then it was Ukraine, then they made that a phony constitutional crisis to push impeachment. Then they went from downplaying COVID-19 to cheering the falling stock market and using the crisis as another way to divide and sow mistrust of the President, instead of passing along information in a cautious and respectful manner.

#RepoenAmerica – Power Hungry Liberals Are Lying To Keep Us In Lockdown For Their Benefit

Do you remember a month to six weeks ago, when we were told that we needed to put our lives on hold until we “flattened the curve?”

Of course, that was based on modeling predictions that predicted the worst, hundreds of thousands of deaths in the United States from COVID-19, as well as more patients than there were hospital beds.
But now, with hospitals having nowhere near the projected number of COVID patients, as well as the infections numbers on the decrease, the liberal politicians around the nation (federally and locally), are wanting to move the goalposts as unemployed workers and small business owners are protesting the continued shutdowns.
Among those moving the goalposts is California Governor “Slick” Gavin Newsom (ABC7News). 
“You'll be left wanting if you woke up to this discussion and (thought) we're going to hear that we're reopening large sectors of our society. We are not prepared to do that today," said Newsom. 
The governor instead announced a modest step toward normalcy: starting to schedule essential surgeries once again. The change is being done in coordination with Washington and Oregon and is effective immediately, he said.
Newsom focused his remarks on the need to dramatically expand testing before the state would see widespread reopening. At the end of March, Newsom said, there were about 2,000 COVID-19 tests being done per day in the state. That number has since increased to 16,000 per day, but needs to scale up to between 60,000 and 80,000 daily tests in the near future.
So forget reopening after “flattening the curve,” now, we have to have near universal testing. And how long will that take? Additionally, the same “scientists” who have been wrong thus far are telling everyone it’s going to get worse in the fall.

With their track record the last two months, why should we believe them? Likewise, why should we believe all these politicians who are still collecting paychecks while so many of their constituents are wondering how they are going to be able to buy food, pay their rent or mortgage, and afford the necessities of life?

“Hey man! Do you want people to die or is your stock portfolio more important?” is the chorus from liberal elites in politics, their Corrupt Media lapdogs, and the wealthy entertainers / pop-culture icons who don’t have to worry where their next meal is coming from. The “either or” argument from the pro-shut down crowd is a false one, because they don’t take into consideration the health impact on those affected due to the shutdown (Kaiser Foundation)
A broad body of research links social isolation and loneliness to poor mental health; and recent data shows that significantly higher shares of people who were sheltering in place (47%) reported negative mental health effects resulting from worry or stress related to coronavirus than among those not sheltering in place (37%). Negative mental health effects due to social isolation may be particularly pronounced among older adults and households with adolescents, as these groups are already at risk for depression or suicidal ideation. 
Research shows that job loss is associated with increased depression, anxiety, distress, and low self-esteem and may lead to higher rates of substance use disorder and suicide. Recent polling data shows that more than half of the people who lost income or employment reported negative mental health impacts from worry or stress over coronavirus; and lower income people report higher rates of major negative mental health impacts compared to higher income people.
Well, it ain’t about the stock market, but you can’t tell that to elite, tone-deaf liberals like Nancy Pelosi, who shows off her designer ice cream collection in her $24,000 refrigerators. Or the celebrity elites and former First Ladies Moochelle Obama and Laura Bush, who put on a big fundraiser not for their fellow Americans facing financial loss and unemployment, but for the World Health Organization, who have been nothing but a mouthpiece for the Communist Chinese regime who tried to cover up the outbreak when it happened.

We are being lied to by these liberal elites. Governors like Slick Newsom, as well as “Blackface” Northam in Virginia, and Whitler in Michigan have used this emergency as an opportunity to treat all of us like we too dumb to take care of ourselves, often acting as tin pot dictators in the process. Every emergency is an opportunity for those who believe in the State to see how much liberty they can destroy and power over people’s lives they can get. The COVID-19 outbreak is no exception, as Democrats, the media and their celebrity supporters are using fear over this virus to demand “Vote by Mail,” which is essentially legalized voter fraud.

Mail-In Ballots Make Voter Fraud Easy, I Know Because I Did It

The American people are an innovative people, and can be trusted to reopen America is a safe way that protects themselves and others. Liberals who don’t think so are not being honest with you. And those parts of your liberty you are willing to surrender to them so you can be safe they will never give back to you.

Democrats & Media Sycophants Kick & Scream As Trump Lays Path To Reopen US Economy

Yesterday, President Trump announced new, three-step CDC guidelines to open America up for business again, after the CCP Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic has ravaged the world, and the ensuing health emergency/state closures over the last month have destroyed the US economy after three years of miraculous growth, with around 22 million Americans out of work in the last month, as well as a loss of savings due to the falling stock market.

But will states with Democrat governors take the initiative in reopening the country? Will the Corrupt Media, who have marketed nothing but pessimism and falsehoods, continue their efforts to scare Americans from participating in anything but hoarding toilet paper and other items from grocery stores?

Earlier this week, the blackfaced pro-infanticide Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, decided to extend his executive order closing business for two more weeks from his initial April 23rd date to May 8th, and still has the state on lockdown until June 10, regardless of the fact that the Commonwealth has not been in the top 10 percent of deaths or infections. Like other Democrat governors, who have used this national emergency to act as little totalitarians, "Coonman" has used the shutdown to strip the voter ID requirement in Virginia voting, expanded abortion laws and signed gun control legislation, no doubt during a time to suppress any protests (like the one back in January) with his mandatory lockdown.

Other Democrat governors in the East & West Leftist coasts are forming “compacts,” reminiscent of the 1860 Democrats who formed the Confederate States of America, to decide on their own when to reopen for business. Like their confederate counterparts, these Democrats scream “Federalism” and “States Rights,” with a lot of pseudo-conservative support in the #NeverTrumper cabal.

But, as Mark Levin noted on Fox News’ Hannity show lastnight, the police power to shut down the state does not extend to interfering with interstate commerce, thus taking away the “Federalism” argument.

Democrats and their water carriers in the Corrupt Media have attacked any plan to reopen, stating that the President and those in his party care more about the stock market than people’s lives. They say they cannot reopen until there is the ability to test while screaming “SCIENCE!!!” (cue Thomas Dolby) as their rational. But these are the same liberals who, when the President has noted hydroxychloroquine has worked in several cases of treating COVID-19, have attacked the idea, with some governors (like Nevada’s Gov. Sisolak and Michigan’s Governor Whitmer), abusing their positions to forbid doctors from prescribing it. It as if these Leftists are rooting for the country’s failure, so they can benefit from it politically, as Rahm Emmanuel said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” This can be seen as how the Democrats are using this crisis to push for “Vote by Mail,” a recipe for vote fraud. If you need proof, see how California 2018 mid-term elections were the dressrehearsal for vote fraud by “ballot harvesting.”

Don’t be fooled. SCIENCE!!! is the religion for the godless, but when it comes in the form of something that flies in the face of what a Leftist in a lab coat or who has PhD by their name, they close their ears to shut it out. The problem with Leftists is they base their blind faith in science on the word of scientists who utter Leftist theories and use their positions to claim it is science. However, all the models that we used as “SCIENCE!!!” to shut down various states were based on computer models that had flawed data. Kind of like that is used to forecast the weather (and how often is the weatherman wrong?). Actual science, conversely, is not based on opinion, forecasts or projections, but repeated and consistent fact.

While real science is perfect laws (based on a Supreme Being that the Left denies), we as human beings do not live in a perfect world. This is the flaw of liberalism or “progressivism” (aka socialism/communism). Despite his best efforts, man will never create Heaven on Earth, and it is the delusion of seeking of utopia by laws or decrees that history has shown never works. In the process, denies man of his God-given rights, making him a pawn of the State. In this emergency, there is no perfect scenario or end-game.

It is easy for a Leftist like Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsom, the Brooklyn ambulance chaser Chuck Schumer, or any others to talk in terms of having the perfect scenario to reopen the economy. But here’s the problem; how many of them are still receiving paychecks and have never experienced a day of being broke or being unemployed, wondering where your next check is coming from? That’s because many of them have never spent a day in the private sector, spending their time in government instead and using their positions as public servants to ride a gravy train of conflicts of interest (see Biden, Hunter) to enrich themselves and their families. These Democrats cannot relate to the “common man” they claim to speak for. Even Communist/Socialist regimes have a small “elite” who have all the money and power.

Likewise, what the Left doesn’t get is that a closed economy doesn’t just repair itself, and no amount of government spending will fix it. An active participatory workforce creates economic health, not classifying people as “essential” and “non-essential.”  The same people who mocked “trickle down” economics in the 1980s do not understand the trickle-down effect. Sure, many Americans have been blessed with the ability to work from home while their offices are shut down. However, if those Americans who are unemployed are unable to pay for the goods and services that those working remotely can provide, then that has a trickle effect on the economy, affecting the livelihood of those working remotely and those working in the service industry (supermarkets, etc.). Then, that affects tax revenue to the local, state and the federal governments.

Getting America back on the road to recovery cannot be an “either or” proposition. It must be based on a balance of infection numbers and common-sense measures that ensure economic health as well as physical health/recovery of those infected.
