Journalist John Stossel laid out an accurate case for why the federal government shutdown is not a “crisis” for the country, echoing the sentiments of many independent-minded people who feel that this shutdown could be an opportunity for President Trump to finally make sizable gains against the government bureaucracy that keeps Democrats in office.
“Life goes on. Pundits speak as though government is the most important part of America. But it isn’t…Most of life, the best of life, goes on without government. Much of it in spite of government,” Stossel said.
Watch his compelling case:
President Donald Trump could pay for his entire southern border wall with change to spare if he chooses not to sign a bill guaranteeing back pay for furloughed government workers. It would only take three pay periods over six weeks for the government to save more than $6 billion, more than the $5.7 billion Trump is asking for to build the Wall.
The mainstream media is reporting that Trump is prepared to sign the back-pay bill that went to his desk days ago, but Trump has not signed anything, and to do so would knock out some of his leverage over Schumer and Pelosi — which does not seem like it would be in line with “Art of the Deal” policy.
The shutdown — in which 800,000 workers are not working– is saving taxpayers more than two billion dollars for every two-week pay period, but the savings will only count if Trump chooses not to give them back pay.
Here is a chart on the savings, courtesy of the Center for American Progress:
Goldman Sachs Claims Forcing Americans to Wear Masks Would Save U.S. Economy $1 Trillion
Multinational corporations want Americans to submit to the virus regime.
Corporate titan Goldman Sachs has produced research that contends the U.S. economy would save five percent of GDP, or $1 trillion, due to a national mask mandate using federal force to make people wear masks.
“If a face mask mandate meaningfully lowers coronavirus infections, it could be valuable not only from a public health perspective but also from an economic perspective because it could substitute for renewed lockdowns that would otherwise hit GDP,” the researchers wrote.
Goldman’s analysts claim that forcing people to wear masks at the federal level would impact states like Florida and Texas, where masks are not mandatory, and “meaningfully” increase mask usage nationwide. Even though the mandate would be grossly unconstitutional, Goldman apparently believes that the ends justify the means.
They estimate that a mask mandate would increase mask usage overall by 15 percent and cut the daily growth of new coronavirus cases by between .6% and 1%. Goldman is fueling the false dichotomy where the public must to accept either a strict mask mandate or a Draconian shutdown of society. They claim that the next lockdown would take an additional $1 trillion out of the economy.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is attempting to unseat President Trump in November, has stated that he would use federal power to force Americans to wear masks.
“Yes, I would—from an executive standpoint, yes, I would . . . I would do everything possible to make it a requirement that people had to wear masks in public,” Biden mumbled last week.
The stage has been set for round two of the coronavirus panic to cripple society, even though the establishment has been encouraging Black Lives Matter pogroms against white people simultaneously.
Big League Politics has reported on the so-called experts as they have kept the fear propaganda going despite the immense hypocrisy:
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.
The establishment will never allow normalcy to return. The Orwellian nightmare, enabled by COVID-19 hysteria, is here to stay.
