David Franke: Why Covid-19 Is So Different from Previous Pandemics

Our friend David Franke writing for RichardCYoung.com says this is not the first time that a pandemic has struck hard at the United States. What is different today is how we have over-reacted with fear and panic. Mr. Franke takes a quick stroll through the history of the past 100 years and then draws some lessons about why our current reaction is so unprecedented.

Confirmed: 'Some people are making more money by not working.'

While some workers are turning down jobs because they’re worried about getting sick or infecting family members or because they don’t have child care, others are flat-out telling employers they’re making more money safe at home collecting unemployment. Fifteen days to flatten the curve morphed into five months off work at more than your regular pay, to -- if Democrats get their way -- a full year of watching TV on the taxpayers’ tab.

Conservative Leaders: End Perverse Incentives Keeping Workers Home

No matter the dearth of local COVID cases or the establishment’s strict safety precautions, expanded unemployment benefits, including a $600 a week COVID "bonus," have incentivized some employees to refuse to return to work. Now, a group of conservative leaders has penned an open letter to Republicans in Congress and President Trump urging them to fix the policies that encourage workers to stay off the job.

Support Trump 's Plans to Jumpstart the Economy and Get Americans Back to Work

Contrary to what Democrats clearly want – which is to increase the economic damage and misery – President Trump has begun to implement a bold plan of regulatory relief to jumpstart the economy and get Americans back to work. If if your Governor still has your state lockeddown call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

The Media Bias Against Florida's Conservative Governor Ron DeSantis

New York has 10 times the coronaviru deaths that Florida has. With the Democrat icon showing so badly the liberal media claims the notion that there is a blue-state and a red-state way of attacking the virus is absurd. We might agree, if the Leftwing media was not giving New York's Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo a pass for his disastrous results while pillorying Florida's conservative Governor Ron DeSantis for his success, not only in saving lives, but getting Floridians back to work.

To Mask Or Not To Mask?

If you are suffering from whiplash or feel like you are watching a tennis match join the club trying to follow the conflicting medical advice about face masks. And if the medical and public health advice is conflicting, wearing a mask – or not – now seems to have become a political statement as well. As the unconstitutional lockdowns begin to come off other arbitrary mandates, such as wearing a mask when outdoors, are being imposed. We are interested in what CHQ readers think about wearing a mask – please let us know in the comments after this article.

The Best Defense Against Covid-19 is a Strong Immune System

Given the importance of our immune systems in keeping us in good health, and protecting us from the pandemic, one would think serious attention would be given to strengthening everyone’s immune systems before drugs and medical procedures are needed.  But one would be wrong in that assumption.  Very little attention is focused on strengthening natural immunity, in the mainstream media or even in the general medical community.

National Coronavirus Recovery Commission Announces Five-Phase Plan To Reopen America

These Heritage Foundation recommendations will help to restart economic activity while suppressing the novel coronavirus to give the American people the confidence to begin returning to normal. The plan is formulated to save both our lives and our livelihoods. It is not about choosing between protecting lives or the economy, but about achieving the prudent balance needed to protect both. We urge CHQ readers to download the report, read it and share it with the leaders of your community.

Conservatives Petition White House To Disconnect From Red China And Hold Communists Accountable For Pandemic

A group of conservative leaders has launched an open letter to President Trump urging him to hold Red China accountable for the damage and loss of life caused by the Wuhan virus. The letter, accompanied by a White House petition, was launched yesterday. We urge CHQ readers and friends to put their support behind this effort by adding their names to the White House petition through this link.

“Occam's Razor” – The Case of the Chinese Corona Virus

In this CHQ exclusive, Richard Lawless, author of Capitol Hill's Criminal Underground applies Occam's Razor to the corona virus epidemic. Sometimes the most obvious explanation is the right one. Lawless believes that is the case when it comes to the corona virus pandemic.  One must ask, who would benefit the most from a global pandemic with crushing economic consequences? Where does the evidence take us?

Let the Lockdown End, County by County

Grassroots protests are multiplying against the draconian stay-at-home orders, and every day brings new announcements of states ending parts of their lockdowns.  The challenge is to do it intelligently to avoid a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our friend David Franke says the way to do that is to end the lockdowns on a county-by-county basis, as he explains in this report.

Anti-Lockdown Protests And The Defiant Protestant Heart of America

Defiance of the authoritarian kings and queens of the universal lockdown order, the high priests of COVID-19 pseudo-science and the Inquisitors of the establishment media is deeply rooted in America’s cultural Calvinism and the Protestant Enlightenment. Far from being anti-science this defiance is deeply rooted in Protestant Enlightenment thinking in which all authority may be tested against the plain language of the Gospel and all knowledge tested through the lived experience of observation and experimentation.

Rep. Thomas Massie Defends The Constitution… Again

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Thomas Massie once again bucked the DC  Uniparty to demand Congress follow the Constitution and its own rules. The way we see it Rep. Massie is another frontline hero of this epidemic. Just as doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers are trying to quell the coronavirus epidemic, Rep. Massie is on the frontlines trying to quell the epidemic of anti-constitutional government that is threatening the life of our Republic.

Conservative Leaders Stand With 'Get America Back To Work' Governors

Governors in Georgia, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, Alaska, and Tennessee have begun announcing phased re-openings of their states and communities, allowing people to choose to return to work, go shopping, purchase services, and attend religious services, and once again exercise their rights and judgments as citizens. The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project applaud the thoughtful leadership of these governors.

Is Sweden’s Problem Coronavirus or Immigration?

After the Swedish government chose not to shut down the country in response to the Wuhan virus empidemic our friend David Franke took a deep dive into the mortality statistics for Sweden and other European countries and made a shocking discovery: mortality per million during this epidemic may be driven more by cultural differences attributable to mass immigration from the Middle East and Africa than it is by government lockdown policies.

COVID-19 Origins: The Must-Read Truth From Clare Lopez

As an explanation of how the Chinese Communists understand warfare “Made in China” stands on its own as an excellent primer on the subject, but our interest is in Clare Lopez’s report as the best short explanation available of how the 2019-nCoV came into existence and how the Communist Chinese weaponized the pandemic against the West.

President Trump Should Adjourn Congress and Fill Critical Executive Positions

The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by President Reagan’s Attorney General Edwin Meese III and CAP Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, have released an open letter to President Trump urging him to adjourn Congress and use his recess appointment power fill key positions that have been left vacant in his administration through congressional inaction and obstruction.

Only You Can Put America Back To Work

Clearly, the imposition of tyrannical collective rules are only acceptable to those with high levels of fear; prohibiting skateboarding, forbidding solo motorboating and “non-essential” advertising are rightly losing the support of millions of Americans who are already ignoring them as unscientific, irrational and in many cases unconstitutional. What is needed to get us back to "normal" is for each of us to take responsibility for our own safety and manage our fears accordingly.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step 3, Completion Of The Lower Receiver

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2, Step 3 of our project as we complete our lower receiver to exercise our Second Amendment rights and ward off cabin fever by building an AR-15.

An Economic Shutdown Based On... What?

Today there is widespread skepticism about the statistical projections of the coronavirus epidemiological models, even when we confine ourselves to the statistics about deaths, which are the most verifiable.  Maybe not on MSNBC and most of CNN, but then they live in their own universe.  There is evidence, however, that our political and financial establishments are becoming alarmed that we have crippled the economy on the basis of nonsense.
