UnConstitutional

Prosecutors dropped the charges for violating health orders against Manke after Michigan’s Supreme Court ruled earlier this month that the governor’s orders were an unconstitutional use of her emergency powers.

“Based on that ruling, we didn’t feel the charges could go forward,” said prosecuting attorney Scott Koerner.

PITTSBURGH — Shawn Steffee was at a political function in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, last Thursday evening when he started receiving an overwhelming number of calls and text messages. “My phone started going off like a slot machine. Initially, I had no idea what was going on,” he said from his home in Homer City.

Steffee, a Boilermakers Local 154 business agent and executive board member, soon found the flood of texts and calls were because Joe Biden lied about Steffee and his union supporting him during the ABC News town hall event last week. Host George Stephanopoulos noted Steffee by name in a question about the sincerity of Biden’s support of fracking. Steffee had told the New York Times that Biden’s sudden vocal support of fracking is inconsistent with his goal of ending the use of fossil fuels, and Stephanopoulos pressed him on Steffee’s statement.

“The boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, OK?” Biden snapped on Thursday, adding, “So, the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, No. 1.”

Except they didn’t.

 

As violent crimes rises 250%

The New York City Police Department, the largest law enforcement force in the nation, has seen a nearly 90% rise in retirements so far in 2020, the NYPD told Fox News.

Around 2,400 officers filed for retirement as of Oct. 6, compared to around 1,300 during the same time frame in 2019, marking an 87% increase, an NYPD spokesperson told Fox.

Additionally, a total of 372 cops have resigned as of Oct. 6—five more than the same time frame in 2019, the NYPD told Fox.

“The NYPD has seen a surge in the number of officers filing for retirement,” the spokesperson said. “While the decision to retire is a personal one and can be attributed to a range of factors, it is a troubling trend that we are closely monitoring.”

THE IRISH SINK BACK INTO LOCKDOWN

By Pete Moore On October 19th, 2020 at 9:05 pm

The Irish government is to move the country to the highest level of coronavirus restrictions, broadly similar to the spring lockdown.

Cabinet ministers have agreed to place the country under level five restrictions from midnight on Wednesday in a bid to combat the rise in cases.

Andrew Neil, usually a reliable source for statistics, says that the ROI’s average daily death toll from Covid has been 1 since mid-June. I didn’t miss out any zeros. That’s one. We are governed by closed minded lunatics.

LOCKDOWNS KILL

While the BBC reinforces fear on its front page we must dig into the “Health” section for the real news. It’s both heartbreaking and scandalous.

Deaths at home: More than 26,000 extra this year, ONS finds

More men than normal are dying at home from heart disease in England and Wales, and more women are dying from dementia and Alzheimer’s, figures show.

More than 26,000 extra deaths occurred in private homes this year, an analysis by the Office for National Statistics found.

In contrast, deaths in hospitals from these causes have been lower than usual.

The Covid epidemic may have led to fewer people being treated in hospital.

Gee, I wonder if there’s a link to the NHS becoming the National Covid Service for most of the year. You still can’t see a GP. The vets are open so your dog is in luck but if grandad needs a doctor he needn’t bother lifting the phone.

Deaths at home due to heart disease, cancers, respiratory illnesses, dementia and Alzheimers are all hugely above the five year average for the period. We know this. We know that tens of thousands of people have been dying because they have been receiving the attention they need and have paid for. So it’s 26,000 and counting and it’s a toll which will go up for years. Yet still the lockdown addicts demand more and greater lockdowns. The virus is mild to asymptomatic for the vast majority of people who become infected, so we are now at the point of zealotry with these people. Nothing will make them see sense. The Prime Minister, last week, accused people opposed to lockdowns of wanting to let the virus “rip though the country”. What he has done is let all the other diseases and illnesses rip through the country instead.
