When we work together, we’re stronger.
As I was saying this morning:
“It looks like they are about to get their wish. They are going to get the chance to go with their Plan A which is to end the lockdown and allow the virus to rebound. Most of the Blue States where the bulk of the deaths occurred will undoubtedly go their own way and Middle America should be the global epicenter of the virus by the summer.”
We are about to enter the dip.
In the Blue States, the lockdowns began earlier. California issued a stay-at-home order on March 19. New York issued a stay-at-home order on March 22. Washington issued a stay-at-home order on March 23. The coastal states are suppressing the virus where it first entered the country.
“Multiple leading conservative advocacy groups plan to announce a joint coalition to demand the reopening of the U.S. economy despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, pushing for government authorities to loosen restrictions against the warnings of leading public health experts, according to three people with knowledge of the coming announcement.
The push from conservative groups aims to pressure President Trump and the nation’s governors to relax stay-at-home orders and other measures aimed at slowing the spread of the virus that threatens hundreds of thousands of American lives. Trump this week plans to launch an advisory committee to help him plan how to jump start the economy that largely shut down after the pandemic spread in the United States, but his group so far appears to be made up largely of his cabinet and senior advisers.
The outside effort from conservative groups is expected to be led by Stephen Moore, a conservative at the Heritage Foundation who is close with White House economic officials; Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots; Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks, a conservative advocacy organization; and Lisa Nelson, chief executive of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative organization with ties to the Koch Brothers, according to the three people, granted anonymity to reveal details of an effort that had not been publicly revealed. …
“There’s a massive movement on the right now, growing exponentially. In the next two weeks you’ll see protests in the streets of conservatives; you’ll see a big pushback against the lock-down in some states. People are at the boiling point,” said Moore, who declined to comment on the group. “If this were Hillary Clinton doing these things, you already would have riots in the streets.” “
Other conservatives have proposed sidelining the two leading public health experts in the administration, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Deborah Birx, coronavirus response director. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), a conservative lawmaker, tweeted Monday that Fauci and Birx “should no longer be the primary voices at the table.” “We need to open our economy TODAY to prevent a great depression,” Biggs said. …”
As the New York metro area peaks, the national numbers will dip as the epicenter of the virus shifts into Middle America. The Red States will “open for business” and the virus will strongly rebound and spike as it starts killing many more White people in rural and suburban Trump Country. It has been established on FOX News that the virus is an elaborate hoax and Fauci is a Deep State operative who wants to destroy the American economy to defeat Trump in the 2020 election. The vast majority of people who have died so far from the virus so far are inner city blacks and people who live in the New York area.
