CDC Warns COVID-19 ‘Pandemic is Not Over’ and Strict Shutdown Policies May Need to Come Back

They are pushing this as the new normal.

By Shane Trejo – 6/15/2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.

“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.

“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.

Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”

The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.

Big League Politics reported in April on how the CDC’s coronavirus tests sent out to states were actually tainted with coronavirus:

Federal officials have now confirmed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent faulty coronavirus tests to states throughout the country that were actually tainted by the highly-infectious disease.

The CDC is blaming “a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents” on the colossal public safety failure. They even admitted in a statement to the New York Times that they “did not manufacture its test consistent with its own protocol,” but now claim that they have “implemented enhanced quality control to address the issue and will be assessing the issue moving forward.”

However, the damage is done because it took the CDC a month to fix the problem. Over the crucial period between February and March, these faulty tests were distributed across the country. The mind-boggling incompetence from the alleged experts prevented states from preventing the coronavirus outbreak, which led to the total lockdown of the society that may result in a new great depression.

“It was just tragic,” said Scott Becker, who works as executive director of the Association of Public Health Laboratories, to the Times. “All that time when we were sitting there waiting, I really felt like, here we were at one of the most critical junctures in public health history, and the biggest tool in our toolbox was missing.”

The CDC, and their globalist counterparts at the World Health Organization (WHO), have failed the world and continue to double down on their lies because it is the only way for them to save face at this point.

SHOCK VIDEO: Black Mob Targets White Kids for Vicious Gang Beatdown in Ocean City, Md.

This is what the Left wants to replace the police with.

By Shane Trejo – 6/12/2020

A vicious black mob targeted white kids on the boardwalk in Ocean City, Md. on Tuesday night in a gruesome scene that was caught on video by a couple in a motel room. White kids were beaten senseless and presumably robbed by a large group of blacks who cackled and cheered on the thuggery as it took place.

“We are equally horrified by the actions displayed on social media video depicting violence and unruly crowds. This behavior has no place in Ocean City, and violence like this will not be tolerated. The town and OCPD are working immediately on addressing this disturbing behavior,” Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan said.

The heinous video can be seen here:

City officials are worried about how a recent wave of violence will affect tourism in the town that is known for its beaches. More businesses could shutter because of this savagery that is being unleashed:

Recent violence in Ocean City, Maryland, is raising concerns from local officials as the tourism season in the beach community begins.

Cellphone video taken Tuesday night captured a fight on the boardwalk.

The video appears to show a large group of people on the boardwalk when a brawl breaks out. One person appears to get hit and falls motionless to the ground.

The crowd moves around before what appears to be another fight.

This comes just days after police put out two pictures of suspects following a stabbing Sunday night on the boardwalk between 6th and 7th streets.

As the Black Lives Matter terror movement gains traction throughout the country, criminal elements are feeling emboldened to rape and pillage with the police being too skittish to do much of anything to stop them.

Black Lives Matter is now publicly calling for police forces to be disbanded so the rule of the jungle can replace the rule of law nationwide.

“We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive but thrive,” Black Lives Matter said in a statement.George Floyd’s violent death was a breaking point — an all too familiar reminder that, for Black people, law enforcement doesn’t protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them.”

The mainstream media is not just biases, it is not just lying to the American public. The mainstream media is the ENEMY of the American people.

Last week was a historic wake up call for the United States.
The Democrat party took their anger out on American public.

The left rioted, looted, shot and killed, burned and destroyed.

The mainstream media DID NOT show you the aftermath of the leftist rage.
They hid this from the American people.

Here is a MUST SEE video from Chicago, New York City, St. Louis and Minneapolis of the aftermath of last week’s violence and destruction.

Wow! Minneapolis City Council President Says Calling the Police on Burglars “Comes from a Place of Privilege” (VIDEO)

By Jim Hoft – 6/8/2020

After nearly two weeks of violence, mayhem, and rioting in Minneapolis, the City Council on Sunday voted on their intent to disband the police department.

The wild proposal would invest in “community-led public safety” instead of police officers.

“We are here today because George Floyd was killed by the Minneapolis Police Department. We are also here because, here in Minneapolis and in cities across the United States, it is clear that our existing system of policing and public safety isn’t working for so many of our neighbors,” Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender said in a written statement Sunday, obtained by the Appeal. “Our efforts at incremental reform have failed.”

The effort has a veto-proof majority in the council, and many of the members have been publicly outspoken about their disdain for the police department.

On Monday Council President Lisa Bender joined Alisyn Camerota on CNN to discuss the plan.

When asked about who people will call if their home is broken into, who to call, Lisa Bender said this:

Lisa Bender: “Yes, I mean, and I hear that loud and clear from several of my neighbors, and I know, and myself too, and I know that comes from a place of privilege.”

These people are complete lunatics.

It’s leadership like this that give you this–

 

Veto-Proof Majority of Minneapolis City Councillors Commit to Disbanding Police Department

The city will go through with the social experiment.

By

– 6/8/2020

A veto-proof majority of nine Minneapolis City Councillors appear to have endorsed the full abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department, making it likely that the city will soon proceed with a radical social experiment in which a major American city will go without law enforcement .

Jeremiah Ellison, a Minneapolis City Councillor and the son of left-wing pro-ANTIFA Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, was among the first of the city councilors to stand behind the full abolition of the city police department. Lisa Bender, the President of the City Council, followed shortly after, moving the proposal towards political reality.

The Appeal reported that nine members of the city council signed onto a pledge that endorses the disbanding of the police department on Sunday. The amount of councilors who have signed will place the initiative beyond the possibility of a mayor’s veto.

Bender stated on Sunday that the council’s plan to abolish the police department will “end policing as we know it, and to recreate systems of public safety that actually keep us safe.” It’s still unclear exactly what the Minneapolis Council’s replacement for the existing law enforcement system will look like, and the possibilities range from little more than a PR-friendly rebrand of the Minneapolis Police Department to an unprecedented social experiment in which de facto militias will step in the void of previous civilian law enforcement.

Progressive Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey was forced to depart from an anti-police protest in a literal walk of shame on Saturday, being aggressively jeered and booed after he refused to commit to the disbanding of the police department. Frey attempted to deflect away from the issue with vague progressive platitudes, but when a protest organizer demanded that he answer the question, he was viciously booed and quite literally exiled from the protest event.

Frey is also hoping to receive more than $55 million in bailout funds from the federal government in order to repair the damages inflicted upon the city through the race riots he failed to contain as mayor. The abolition of the police department all but assures that his request will be flatly denied, as the possibility of the city being ransacked by rioters and looters in the future after the police department is abolished is considerably more likely.

The social experiment will ultimately place the left’s vision of a police-free society to the test.

 

Art of the Comeback? Record 2.5 Million Jobs Added! Unemployment Falls to 13.3%

The unemployment rate fell to 13.3 percent and payrolls unexpectedly rose by 2.5 million workers as the easing of restrictions on business activity and government aid led to new hiring in May.

The U.S. unemployment rate fell below last month’s record-high 14.7 percent, which was the highest on record in data going back to 1948. Economists estimate that the unemployment rate reached 25 percent during the Great Depression, although that predated the scientific economy-wide record keeping the government now deploys.

The job gains mark a sudden turnaround from a month earlier, when the economy shed a staggering 20.5 million jobs, by far the worst monthly decline on records back to 1939.

Economists had expected the unemployment rate to rise to nearly 20 percent and the economy to shed an additional 8 million jobs.

The mandatory closures of many businesses and stay-at-home orders slammed what had been a very healthy labor market hard. The economy added jobs for 113 straight weeks through February, a record streak of growth. The unemployment rate was 3.5 percent in February. And yet job creation was running very hot, with the economy adding an average of 211,000 new jobs each month.

The government has undertaken unprecedented efforts to support employment and provide aid to those who have lost their jobs. Around 150 million taxpayers received stimulus payments of up to $1200 for adults in their household plus additional amounts for children. The Treasury’s Paycheck Protection Program is backing $669 billion of loans to small businesses that can be forgiven if borrowers do not lay off workers. The federal government has been providing an additional $600 on top of state unemployment benefits, paying some Americans more than they earned on the job.

Recent data suggest the labor market has been stabilizing and is now improving. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits has declined every week since hitting a record high 6.8 million in March. Last week, this number fell to around 1.8 million. Over 40 million new claims have been made for unemployment since the wave but ongoing claims are just over 20 million, indicating many Americans have been rehired after losing jobs.

In May, employment in leisure and hospitality jumped by 1.2 million after falling by 7.5 million in April and 743,000 in March. Bars and restaurants hired an additional 1.4 million workers following a combined 6.1 million in job losses in April and March.

Construction employment jumped by 464,000 in May, gaining back almost half of April’s decline.

Dentist offices added 245,000 jobs. Health care employment overall rose by 312,00.

Retail shops added  368,000 jobs in May, after a loss of 2.3 million inApril. Over-the-month job gains occurred in clothing and clothing accessories stores were 95,000. Auto dealers added 85,000. General merchandise stores added 84,000.

Manufacturers added 225,000 jobs, about evenly split between the durable and nondurable goods components. Twenty-eight thousand of those were in auto making plants.
