OH AYE?

By Pete Moore On January 15th, 2021

The Governor of New York, Andrew Killer Cuomo, has done a volte-face, railing against the cost of keeping the economy closed. The Mayor of Chicago has suddenly flipped also, saying she wants bars and restaurants to re-open as soon as possible. Now Newsweek is promoting the study which finds that lockdowns don’t work.

It is not a coincidence, with President Trump packing his bags, that the narrative is changing.

    Does conspiracy fatigue never set in Pete?

    As I just did to Colm in another thread, I direct you to my comment I made earlier:

  3. I’ve heard this conspiracy talk from some neighbors

    Apparently, the vaccine releases and any re-opening, has the sole objective of making the angry dilettante look bad.

  4. Yes, the drug companies deliberately delayed the vaccines until after the election. Ironically, many of the deluded Trumpists who believe this are anti-vaxers anyway.

  5. Yes, the drug companies deliberately delayed the vaccines until after the election.

    I don’t think they did, but President Trump was widely mocked, by the usual suspects, for saying (correctly) that vaccines would be produced before the end of 2020.

    Peter, you have often accused me of being an anti-vaxxer. This is because you habitually take one piece of data and build a universe out of it. I had a flu jab a fortnight ago and will have the Covid vaccine. Am I still an anti-vaxxer?

    Phantom –

    All I’ve read from the US and UK media is how terrible the virus still is over there. But suddenly, days before the inauguration, Andrew Cuomo is a lockdown sceptic? Come on, start thinking. There are no coincidences in politics.

  6. The lockdowns across the world were implemented to make Trump look bad

    The re-openings also.

    This took a great amount of planning, as organized by Soros and Bill Gates.

    Don’t tell anyone.

    Its not about being an ‘anti-vaxxer’ Its just the idea many people have that all political decision globally and to do with Covid policies are based around ‘destroying Trump’ that is the paranoia element.

  8. Peter, you have often accused me of being an anti-vaxxer.

    I don’t recall that but I’ll take your word for it and withdraw it. In any case my comment at 7.11 PM was intended to refer to the MAGA anti-vaxers who number many millions. Darwin awards await many of them.

  9. What? Politicians don’t set out to destroy their opponents? Dems haven’t tried to destroy the man they said stole the election, was a Russian stooge, then impeached, then defamed daily, then impeached again on absurd charges of staging a coup?!

  10. Not what I said Pete.

  11. Peter –

    Who are these MAGA anti-vaxxers?

    According to the FT “Signs that a relatively high number of healthcare workers are unwilling to receive the coronavirus vaccine in some parts of Europe and the US have alarmed politicians and health experts ..”

    Are they like these European and American anti-vaxxers? Or are you allowed to point only and disparagingly at MAGA anti-vaxxers? And are you sure that there are no anti-vaxxer Democrats?

  12. Ireland is under lockdown. They will re-open at some point.

    Clearly, Mr Martin and his government is trying to make Trump look bad.

  13. According to the FT “Signs that a relatively high number of healthcare workers are unwilling to receive the coronavirus vaccine in some parts of Europe and the US have alarmed politicians and health experts ..”

    France and Germany both have a serious problem with anti-vaxers. Darwin awards await. Thankfully in the UK it’s a small problem.

    But the MAGA anti-vaxers also subscribe to numerous other conspiracy theories as we have seen these past months, fed and amplified by the compulsive-lying sociopath who will be vacating the White House in a few days. The guy who hasn’t said a word about the pandemic since 6 November, nor has he said anything to encourage US citizens to get vaccinated. Because he knows it would annoy a big chunk of his base.

  14. I know anti vaxxers here

    They’re not the brightest bulbs out there let’s just say.

    It is interesting in that it’s not a right or left stance.

    There are plenty of granola-head lefty anti vaxxers in NYC and San Francisco

  15. We here in Canada closed the border to our largest trading partner and most frequent visitors just to embarrass turnip and in no way to keep the lepers out of the country

  16. When the BBC, Kier Starmer, the unions and the Establishment all promote lockdowns, you just know it is done to ruin the ruling party or individual.

  17. Of course it is Mark. As paranoid and daft a claim as the one that the whole global COVID crisis was engineered to bring down Trump.
