Excellent summary of Victorian lockdown extension

Paul Murray explains what the extended lockdowns in Victoria mean. 6 more weeks. Video here.

Premier Dan Andrews isn’t interested in reality. To get 5 cases or less for 14 days in a row technically means that if 13 days had zero cases and one day 6, lockdown would stay. Utter madness.

We guess when the police state wants to handcuff pregnant mothers, best set the hurdles to nigh on impossibly low levels to ensure failure is guaranteed and keep the power trip going as long as possible.

Shameless. Spineless. Not based on science.

Kim Jong un would blush

It seems that gaslighting knows no bounds. Some Victorians want to pay homage to Victorian Premier Dan Andrews with virtual claps despite his utter failure in handling lockdown. The virtual claps forum reads:

Send Dan Andrews, Brett Sutton & team, and healthcare workers virtual claps for their continued hard work in getting the daily case numbers down. Thank you all! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.

Please remember to share this event with friends.

Updates (including current growth factor) will be provided on a regular basis. Let’s keep doing the right thing to bring down the growth factor.

Kim Jong Un would blush at such a show from his loyal peasants.

Never mind Dan Andrews and team presided over the most incompetent handling of the pandemic by any state government by far.

Where the facts reveal the Andrews’ team are the last people that should be in charge of anything. 26% of the nation’s population and over 88% of the total death toll from coronavirus.

Where Victoria Police arrested and handcuffed a pregnant women who could face jail time of up to 15 years for incitement.

Where BLM protests took place with next to no enforcement of the lockdown laws. The three organizers were given fines but nothing more. Double standards.

Where private security guards – put in charge of quarantine hotels – slept with the people they were ordered to professionally look after. The same guards that were given a quick course in diversity instead of training in dealing with coronavirus.

Perhaps these brainwashed Victorians who want to make empty gestures on social media may think differently when they discover that the Andrews’ government will deliver what socialism always does – shared misery.

Vic Police make 2nd arrest on FB post. Gov’t finds 59 more CVD deaths to guarantee lockdown stays

You have to hand it to the Victoria Police for making absolutely no effort in trying to politely reason with the people they are trying to arrest. Yesterday, Premier Dan Andrews denied seeing the video of the arrest of a pregnant mother in front of her kids. No doubt he will claim he hasn’t seen this video either. In what world did the Vic Police think a pregnant woman was a flight risk to warrant hand cuffing her?

James Bartolo is the second person in two days to be charged for ‘incitement’ thanks to the police state that is now Victoria. Does the Victorian government fear sedition? Must it crush those who seek to oppose its power trip? Is Dan Andrews enjoying his daily pressers a bit too much?

Bartolo uploaded a video discussing how he intends to go to the Saturday ‘Freedom Day‘ rally and encouraging others to stand up for their rights.

So even though Bartolo hasn’t physically done anything, Victoria Police rounded up a normally law abiding citizen for questioning the very powers granted by despotic politicians that should never have been granted them in the first place.

We would imagine that a growing number of Victorians can’t sit idly by and watch these Stasi tactics continue. This is nothing more than intimidation. If there are protest rallies off the back of these videos, we won’t be in the least bit surprised. It will be a 100% own goal.

Oh, and wasn’t it fascinating to see that Victorian authorities found another 59 coronavirus deaths out of nowhere? Could it possibly be another police state tactic to guarantee that the lockdown stays in full effect come September 13th? Absolutely. Kim Jong Un would blush at the efficiency.

BTW, where is PM Scott Morrison condemning what is happening?

Life experience politicians vs Career politicians

It is so refreshing when politicians have life experience. South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem posted the following statement. As a small business owner herself, she knew how they functioned and has opened her state’s doors to welcome anyone fleeing lawless Democrat run cities, towns and states.

You’ve heard me say many times that South Dakota never closed. We allowed South Dakotans to make the best decisions for themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities. But we were unique in this path; other states made different choices. In fact, in some places businesses have been closed for the past six months. How are small business owners supposed to make ends meet in states that have locked down their economies for six months straight?

This isn’t a hypothetical question to me. As a former small business owner, I’ve personally dealt with the struggles of keeping a business afloat. When my dad passed away, I had to take charge of our family’s farming operation. We struggled to balance paying our IRS bill with payroll and all the other expenses that are a regular part of running a small business. If we’d been forced to shut down for six months in the middle of it all, our business would not have made it.

That’s exactly what we’re seeing play out across the country. As a result of extended lockdowns, countless businesses are closing. In July, Yelp announced that more than 72,000 businesses on the site had closed for good since the start of the pandemic, and that was more than a month ago. Retailers and restaurants have been hit especially hard.

These businesses are more than just storefronts – they’re people’s livelihoods. They put food on the table, not only for small business owners, but also for their employees. Without businesses to employ these workers, states that have been shut down will struggle to recover even after they reopen.

Here in South Dakota, because we didn’t shut down our state, the recovery story is far stronger. According to the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, South Dakota had the fewest low-income job losses of any state in our region, and as of the end of June, we’d already recovered nearly all of those losses. Our weekly initial unemployment claims continue to drop. This is positive news coming into the Labor Day weekend.

Our tourism industry is rebounding strongly as well. South Dakota is the third best state in the country for domestic tourism bookings compared to the start of the pandemic. Interest in visiting South Dakota has surged, meaning we’ll continue to see friendly faces visiting our state in the weeks, months, and years to come.

We’re hearing from lots of folks interested in not only visiting South Dakota, but moving here full-time. If business owners are sick and tired of the lockdowns in other states, I want them to know that they have another option. They can come to South Dakota. We respect our people’s rights, and we won’t shut businesses down. We’re open for opportunity, and on my watch, we always will be.”

Maybe some lessons for the State of Victoria, Australia. Are you listening, Dan Andrews? Of course not.
