Leftists Created Alarming Virus Predictions Now Used as Excuse for Population Lockdowns

COVID Act Now is an online predictive computer program used by media, state governors, local leaders, and county judges as a reason to quarantine their communities over the corona virus. The computer models are 100% sourced from doomsday projections from Imperial College, in the UK, that predicts two-million Americans will die from the virus. It should be noted that Imperial College is where Neil Ferguson, the ‘scientist’ highlighted in the previous article, produced his prediction that a half-million Brits will die from the virus, but now has revised the number to 20,000 or less. Founders of COVID Act Now include Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, a Democrat state representative in Alaska, and Democrat activists Zachary Rosen, Max Henderson, and Igor Kofman. Their web site says: “this [computer] model is designed to drive fast action, not predict the future.” [In other words, the predictions are propaganda, not science.]  -GEG

As U.S. state and local officials halt the economy and quarantine their communities over the Wuhan virus crisis, one would hope our leaders were making such major decisions based on well-sourced data and statistical analysis. That is not the case.

A scan of statements made by media, state governors, local leaders, county judges, and more show many relying on the same source, an online mapping tool called COVID Act Now. The website says it is “built to enable political leaders to quickly make decisions in their Coronavirus response informed by best available data and modeling.”

An interactive map provides users a catastrophic forecast for each state, should they wait to implement COVID Act Now’s suggested strict measures to “flatten the curve.” But a closer look at how many of COVID Act Now’s predictions have already fallen short, and how they became a ubiquitous resource across the country overnight, suggests something more sinister.

When Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced a shelter-in-place order on Dallas County Sunday, he displayed COVID Act Now graphs with predictive outcomes after three months if certain drastic measures are taken. The NBC Dallas affiliate also embedded the COVID Act Now models in their story on the mandate.

The headline of an NBC Oregon affiliate featured COVID Act Now data, and a headline blaring, “Coronavirus model sees Oregon hospitals overwhelmed by mid-April.” Both The Oregonian and The East Oregonian also published stories featuring the widely shared data predicting a “point of no return.”

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer cited COVID Act Now when telling her state they would exceed 7 million cases in Michigan, with 1 million hospitalized and 460,000 deaths if the state did nothing.

A local CBS report in Georgia featured an Emory University professor urging Gov. Brian Kemp with the same “point of no return” language and COVID Act Now models.

Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 1

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.
