Lack of Leadership Worsened the Pandemic, Not Young People

Young people were used. Used to help spread the infection which was killing those whose system couldn’t fight it off.

Lack of any leadership has allowed the infection to be spread to all corners of our country.

When a total lock down could have helped to isolate the virus, and leadership could have helped everyone financially until that period was over, the emptying of our treasuries to the benefit of the few was more important than the lives of us all.

My only hope is that all of our deaths are not in vain. I sincerely hope that the youth who were used to facilitate the perpetual spread of this deadly virus, come to accept their role in it’s destructive effects.

We won’t know for possibly a long time the damage this virus is doing to those internally who have breathed it in, both young and old.

Both political parties are ultimately responsible.

I haven’t seen one politician go to jail yet for the death of the 170,000 who’ve perished from their inaction, or, for protesting against this current administration for a total lack of action to prevent the spread of this pandemic.

Does anyone else here believe if all of the Democratic House and Senate had got together back in March or April and screamed at the top of their lungs, 24/7, day in and day out, that Trump and the GOP Congress were intentionally killing Americans with their inaction, in front of the White House or in the halls of Congress, subjecting themselves to arrest, does anyone think that that action could have made a difference at all?

Millennials find our value words like peace, freedom, democracy, liberty, socialism, neoliberals, neoconservative, far right, far left, middle of the road and compassionate conservatism have all been desensitized, murdered by over use and claimed as reality when the opposite is the reality, hallow. All those terms have no value to them. All the lies, half truths and bastardization have destroyed their meaning. We didn’t make the millennials dumb but smarter than earlier generations and they see right through us and we realize nothing. The great generation shot the boomers burgeoning values at Kent State, how will the boomers stop the Millennials burgeoning value as they protest in the streets for social redress?

Easy to believe, only the Dims wouldn’t need to have gone to such extremes to have made a significant difference. The House could have simply leveraged the power of the purse to prioritize the people’s needs (such as a Post Office, or a national testing strategy) ahead of the banksters who have been so obscenely relieved by their first three “pandemic relief” bills. Because Nancy & Chuck also belong to the banksters. Wouldn’t want to see the Dow suffering with the rest of us, would we?

So here is how some right wing operatives are explaining the pandemic

COPY & PASTED MATERIAL just the messenger

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG… THE CDC, THE WHO, AND ALL THE SO-CALLED EXPERTS LIED TO YOU!!! HERE’S THE LIST: @ 20/20

:warning: EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY NEEDS TO READ THIS AND ABSORB IT… THOSE STILL ASLEEP, YOU BETTER WAKE UP BECAUSE THIS SHAM/DRESS REHEARSAL WILL CERTAINLY BE THE LAST CHANCE; THOSE CHOOSING TO REMAIN IN DENIAL, GIVING THE FINGER TO REALITY, YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN …

FEEL “FREE” TO FACT CHECK EACH OF THESE, PLEASE!

:small_red_triangle:"CDC admitted they screwed up COVID19 infection

counts and intentionally misled the public and have apologized, clarifying that the amount of people truly infected is much lower than what was originally reported – an error so egregious it made the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute say “how could the CDC make this mistake? This is a mess."

:small_red_triangle:The American Coronavirus Task Force also admitted to fudging the National COVID19 death count when Dr. Birx said the deaths are people who died “with” COVID19 not “from” COVID19, thus making the real death count much lower than what is currently being reported.

:small_red_triangle:Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted masks won’t help against the virus and mask manufacturers are now including warnings that their products do not deter COVID19.

:small_red_triangle:Fauci also said that continuing to close the country could cause irreparable damage.

:small_red_triangle:CDC backtracked their initial claim that led governors to shutdown their states & clarified that COVID19 does not spread easily on surfaces.

:small_red_triangle:Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo confirmed a recent health study showing that 70% of new infections actually originate at home, thus making stay at home orders one of the most dangerous mandates currently in place.

:small_red_triangle:Trump stopped funding the WHO and threatened to cut off money permanently until they can prove they are no longer corruptly influenced by communist China after they lied to our country about human to human transmission of COVID19 in January.

:small_red_triangle:The curve is flattened, the CDC, WHO, Dr. Fauci, our governors, and many more were completely wrong about the potential threat of this virus.

:small_red_triangle:If you are still living in fear, Don’t be. The media, global organizations, the government, and its agencies “mislead” the public.

:small_red_triangle:People called those of us who knew this all along conspiracy theorists, but it turns out we were just following the facts!

:small_red_triangle:Open up your businesses, churches, and homes. Don’t fall for the lies any longer. If you fell for the lies this time, wake up and join the army of truth seekers fighting on the front lines.

:small_red_triangle: Florida has just admitted to miscalculations on some that received positive COVID-19 results but never got tested and many others have been incorrectly identified as positive in the state’s system.

:small_red_triangle: WHO have just admitted that transmission of the virus from an asymptomatic carriers - the whole reason for the lockdown, is rare!! ie you could not spread it before showing any symptoms!!

:warning: The CDC just confirmed a .4 to .26% death-rate for Covid 19. The death rate for the flu shot is .6. Twice as high as Covid!

For that, we have:

• Added nearly 6 trillion to national debt

• Laid-off or furloughed 50 million workers

• Placed 60 million on food stamps

• Gone from 3.5%to 14.7% unemployment

• Crippled the petroleum industry

• Ruined the tourism industry

• Bankrupted the service industry

• Caused an impending meat and protein crisis

• Threatened, fined, and arrested church leaders

• Exacerbated mental health problems

• Shut down schools and colleges

• Given unbridled power to unelected officials

• Increased suicides higher than COVID deaths

• Delayed surgeries and treatments for profound illnesses

• Infringed upon countless important civil liberties

• Placed 300 million Americans on house arrest

Bill Gates has placed himself in such a position of influence by heavily funding all corners to make this lie happen.

We need to start treating it as the lie it is.

Seriously our whole way of life is at stake, and they have plans to make it much worse now introducing it as “the grand reset”, “the beginning of the 4th revolution” (ie a surveillance state of control, where everyone lives in what is essentially a strick open air prison where you are tracked, nothing is private, and everything is decided for you, and you have no rights whatsoever, and there can be no resistance.

Welcome to their “new world order”.
