New Study: Lockdowns Didn’t Work

 A little over a year ago, I wrote,

[I]t is now clear that, whatever health risks the Wuhan virus presents, they pale in comparison to the social, mental, economic, and spiritual carnage wrought by the foolish political actions—and subsequent foolish private actions—that tragically followed the Wuhan virus into the U.S. As many warned, including President Trump, for the Wuhan virus, the “cure” has indeed been worse than the disease.

In other words, most of the suffering in America today is not due to the Wuhan virus, but rather to our foolish and widespread reaction to the Wuhan virus. The shutdowns, the lockdowns, the mask mandates, and the like have done little to nothing to stem the tide of the Wuhan virus. Instead, these unwise measures have brought unprecedented suffering—including stress, debt, financial ruin, depression, illness, and death—to tens of millions of Americans.

A new “systematic review and meta-analysis” of numerous lockdown studies validates my—and many others’—conclusions. The study concludes that “lockdowns have had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality.” Specifically, the study, published by Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, found that “lockdowns in Europe and the United States only reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average. SIPOs [‘shelter in place orders’] were also ineffective, only reducing COVID-19 mortality by 2.9% on average.”

Additionally, this study reveals that, while “lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.” Again, more specifically, the authors note,

The use of lockdowns is a unique feature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns have not been used to such a large extent during any of the pandemics of the past century. However, lockdowns during the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic have had devastating effects. They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy. These costs to society must be compared to the benefits of lockdowns, which our meta-analysis has shown are marginal at best. Such a standard benefit-cost calculation leads to a strong conclusion: lockdowns should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument.

For millions of us, this study reveals nothing that we didn’t already know. We didn’t need a study to reveal what our God-given wisdom and senses had long ago made clear to us. Whether our own personal experiences, the experiences of our family and friends, or what we well know about many politicians and government bureaucrats, since at least the summer of 2020 it has been clear that not only were lockdowns largely ineffective against the Wuhan Virus, they also were a widely devastating tool that those devoted to big government were only too eager to employ and too slow to abandon.

Plandemic Lies vs. 6 Months Later

Rumble — Plandemic, Government, mainstream media Lies ➡ REALITY 6 MONTHS LATER


The vaccines are 95% effective at preventing infection ➡ Breakthrough infections everywhere. 

The vaccinated can't spread COVID ("Get vaccinated to protect grandma") ➡ The vaxxed are as infectious as the naive unvaccinated and significantly more infectious than recovered unvaccinated. The vaxxed can become superspreaders like Typhoid Mary, because they are equally or more infectious, but with suppressed symptoms. 

After getting fully vaccinated, you'll be done for good ➡ Boosters are required, because the vaccine provides some protection for only a few months and only against a specific variant. Anyone who doesn't get the booster will be considered unvaccinated after 6 months. 

One booster is adequate ➡ Fourth shot required. Anyone who doesn't get the booster will be considered unvaccinated after 6 months. (Time to be reduced to 4 and then 3 months soon.) 

The vaccines are safe ➡ Vaccines cause serious adverse events and deaths. 

Vaccine adverse events and fatalities are rare ➡ Publicized vaccine adverse events and fatalities are highly suppressed and the tip of the iceberg. The are at least 20 times more ACTUAL adverse events than REPORTED adverse events in the public databases (VAERS, EudraVigilance, etc). 

There will be no COVID internment camps ➡ In Australia and Canada people are now forced into concentration/interment camps (euphemism: quarantine facilities) at their own expense. 

We are all in this together ➡ We must punish, exclude and banish the unvaccinated. Two class society with the clean/superior (vaxxed) on the one hand and the unclean/inferior (unvaxxed) on the other. People who refuse the experimental genetic Kool-Aid injection are fired, not allowed to get schooling, can't get health care and insurance, face huge fines, etc. People who initially (reluctantly) accepted the injections but won't accept the booster, degrade to the unclean/inferior class. 


The vaccinated won't have to wear facemasks ➡ Vaccinated have to wear facemasks again. 

Vaccination will prevent severe COVID ➡ The vaxxed have at best a slightly lower risk of getting hospitalized and dying of COVID, and also have "inexplicable" health issues. 

There will be no vaccine passports ➡ Vaccine passports required for everyday activities. 

Omicron is highly dangerous because it is highly transmissible ➡ Omicron is Mother Nature's perfect vaccine/booster, because it is highly transmissible while being low risk (low virulence, about equal to the common cold). It is both significantly lower risk and higher efficacy and durability than the jabs. 

The injection stays in the shoulder ➡ The injection spreads everywhere in the body, including the ovaries. 


There is a deadly pandemic ➡ There is a severe flu epidemic with the infection fatality and morbidity rate about 2 to 3 times that of an average flu season. Young healthy people are at no significant risk. 

COVID is a severe risk to children ➡ The vaccines are a severe risk to children. 

No safety steps were skipped in the research phase of the vaccines ➡ Countless safety steps were skipped, such as research on biodistribution (how the product spreads in your body), auto-immune disease, cancer, genotoxicity (whether the product harms your genes), reproductive toxicity (fertility), shedding, et cetera.

We must eradicate this virus ➡ Mutating viruses can never be eradicated, just like you can't eradicate the flu and you can't stop the earth from spinning or the wind from blowing. 

We must stop the spread ➡ We must let the low risk group get infected so that they develop natural immunity, while at the same time providing voluntary focused protection to the high risk group. 

There are no safe and effective treatments available ➡ There are countless safe and effective early, medium and late treatments available, such as hydroxychloroquine/quercetin/EGCG with zinc, ivermectin, fluvoxamine, cyproheptadine, famotidine (Pepcid), colchicine, inhaled budesonide, adequate dose vitamins A through E, NAC, aspirin and other blood thinners, upper airway hygiene (nasal rinse, mouth wash, gargling with safe antiseptic fluid), et cetera, et cetera. 

Vitamin D (and other vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids) is for quacks ➡ Adequate vitamin D blood levels (> 50 ng/ml) are absolutely crucial for immune function. 

Lockdowns, facemasks, mass testing and tracing are effective and essential ➡ Lockdowns, face masks, mass testing and tracing are useless and extremely harmful. 

Face masks are meant to keep you safe ➡ Face masks are used for compliance training, to continually remind you of 'risk' and to make you afraid of your fellow humans.

Lockdowns stop the spread ➡ Lockdowns inhibit social contact (which is essential for human wellbeing), keep you in fear, lessen exercise, inhibit vitamin D generation because you spend more time inside instead of in the sun (all of which suppresses immune function). Lockdowns also increase the share of your attention spent on main stream and social media, which allows better fear mongering and propaganda and less exposure to 'Thought Crimes'. Lockdowns are also used to make vaccination seem more attractive: "If you all get vaxxed (carrot), we can end this lockdown (stick) which nobody wants". 

The unvaxxed are variant factories who breed escape mutants that place the vaccinated in danger ➡ Mass vaccination with a leaky narrow vaccine and a mutating pathogen under high immune pressure causes vaccine resistance, just like overuse of antibiotics causes antibiotic resistance. 

The vaxxed become ill due to the unvaxxed ➡ The vaxxed become ill because they are immune suppressed and the vaccines are ineffective. 

Natural immunity doesn't exist ➡ Natural immunity is the most effective type of immunity that provides robust lifelong protection as long as your immune system is in a good state (immune competent). 

The unvaxxed are the highest risk to themselves and others ➡ The immune suppressed (such as the obese, people with auto-immune disease, cancer, transplant) are the highest risk to themselves and others. 

The unvaxxed are the problem ➡ Leaders, politicians and media are the problem This is about a virus ➡ This is about money, power and ideologies 

The health authorities' only goal is optimal public health ➡ The 'health' authorities are captured by pharma and other interests. Their goal is maximal vaccine uptake and use of highly profitable drugs, which means fear mongering and suppression of unprofitable drugs and non-pharmaceutical interventions. 

The virus is the biggest threat ➡ Tyranny is the biggest threat. 

If we comply, the draconian measures will go away ➡ As long as we comply, the measures will only get worse. Civil disobedience is the key against tyranny. 

Politicians and companies are working for our benefit ➡ Politicians and companies are working for their own benefit. 

Fauci and other experts represent 'the science' ➡ Fauci and others are a bunch of lying and manipulating bureaucrats (to put it mildly). 

We should listen to and obey doctors, because they have the best available knowledge ➡ Most doctors don't think independently, are mere protocol followers, are controlled by biases, have unassailable unjustified trust in CDC, FDA and other authorities. 

Doctors behave according to the Hippocratic Oath: First do no harm ➡ First follow the protocol, first go with the flow, first keep your head down.

All conspiracy thinkers / anti-vaxxers are a bunch of crazy people ➡ Conspiracy thinkers / anti-vaxxers were right all along. 

We must trust 'the science' ➡ The essence of science is to question the science (antithesis).

We must suppress dissenting opinions ➡ We must encourage dissenting opinions. 

The media are there to inform the population honestly and completely, and keep politicians 'honest' ➡ The media are there to spread fear, to please their advertisers and sponsors, and are a crucial propaganda tool. 

We must suppress misinformation ➡ 'Misinformation' is the term used for anything that goes against dogma and is undesirable to the vested interests. Censorship of dissenting opinions kills. The worst misinformation is coming from the authorities (official misinformation). 

Science is about the search for the Truth ➡ The SCIENTIFIC METHOD is about the search for the Truth without biases and rigidity. ACTUAL Science is like a cult, full of dogmas and egos, and intolerant of any dissenting opinions. 

Science is about public welfare ➡ 'Science' is a marketing tool. 

We must wait for perfect evidence (which means huge randomized controlled trials) ➡ We must do the best with all the kinds of evidence and tools at our disposal right now.

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are the Gold Standard of science ➡ RCTs are better called Results Controlled Trials. They start with a desired outcome (e.g. highly profitable drug is safe and effective), and through design, manipulation, fraud, etc., this outcome tends to magically appear as a result. 

Vaccine passports keep us safe ➡ Vaccine passports are a gateway drug to a social credit system. 

Our leaders are trying to get us out of this crisis as fast as possible ➡ This crisis has been manufactured (e.g. by suppressing early treatment and the sharing of essential information) and is being prolonged, so politicians can push through their desired agendas while the public is distracted and compliant due to fear, which makes them meek and inhibits critical independent thinking.

Even SCOTUS Leftists Have to Lie to Further the Left’s Wuhan Virus Narrative

Make no mistake about it, leftists lie. This is especially true of leftists in politics and the media. In fact, on most any matter dear to the left’s perverse agenda, one is safer assuming that the leftist you’re hearing or reading is lying. Thus, almost no one should’ve been surprised at the wild (and numerous) lies hurled by Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor during oral arguments over the Biden Administration’s private sector Wuhan Virus vaccine mandate.

Early in the hearing, Justice Kagan called the Wuhan Virus “the greatest public health danger that this country has faced in the last century.” She added, “More and more people are dying every day. More and more people are getting sick every day. I don’t mean to be dramatic here. I’m just sort of stating facts.” I suppose “sort of stating facts” is like “sort of telling the truth,” but it is really just a leftist’s way of saying “I’m feeding you a crock of crap!”

Of course, Kagan’s statements here are premised on the notion that we can even trust the U.S. Wuhan Virus numbers—we can’t. But even if we could, the number of Wuhan Virus deaths in the U.S. are lower than they were in late August of last year, and far lower than they were when (early December of 2020) then President-elect Biden said that “No — I don’t think it [Wuhan Virus vaccine] should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory.”

Later in her exchange with Scott Keller, seemingly defending Biden’s mandate, Kagan stated,

We all know what the best policy is. I mean, by this point, two years later, we know that the best way to prevent spread is for people to get vaccinated and to prevent dangerous illness and death is for people to get vaccinated. That is by far the best. The second best is to wear masks.

These statements are worse than her others. Two years into this virus, there’s little in the data that show that the “best way to prevent spread” of the Wuhan Virus is to get people vaccinated. On the contrary, vaccines haven’t stopped the spread of the Wuhan Virus. Some of the most infected places in the U.S. are those with some of the highest rates of vaccination and mask use.

Tellingly, these (Democrat dominated and led) parts of the U.S. have also enacted lengthy and widespread mask mandates. None of this has been effective in preventing the spread of the Wuhan Virus. How many more times must we tell leftists that masks (especially cloth masks) are nearly useless in stopping or even slowing the spread of the Wuhan Virus?!

Justice Breyer told Mr. Keller,

The hospitals are today, yesterday, full, almost to the point of the maximum they’ve ever been in this disease, okay? And you heard references, studies, I mean, they—they vary, but some of them say that the hospitalization is 90 percent or maybe 60 percent or maybe 80 percent, but a big percent, filled up yesterday or the day before with people who are not vaccinated, okay? So that’s—we’re talking about now.

These statements are patently false. U.S. hospitals are not full of Wuhan Virus patients. They are not “full” of patients in general. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), only about 17 percent of all U.S. hospital beds are occupied by Wuhan Virus patients. Breyer seems to have no idea what the number is. There’s a vast difference in 60 percent capacity vs. 90 percent capacity, yet Breyer tosses both numbers out.

The most egregious lies on the Wuhan Virus during the mandate arguments were uttered by Justice Sonia Sotomayor. She declares that “Omicron is as deadly and causes as much serious disease in the unvaccinated as Delta did.” This is false. She then stated that “We have hospitals that are almost at full capacity.” Maybe some are, but most are not.

The biggest lie of the day was when Sotomayor said, “We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in—in serious condition and many on ventilators.” Whatever metric one wants to use, at no point during this tragic episode have children been in “serious” danger from the Wuhan Virus. In two years of this, there hasn’t been a total of 100,000 children hospitalized in the U.S. due to the Wuhan Virus. Again according to DHHS data, currently there’s just over 3,300 U.S. children in the hospital with the Wuhan Virus.

Note that is with the Wuhan Virus, not from the Wuhan Virus. Even Fauci himself recently admitted “If you look at the children [who] are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID.” U.S. children have suffered far more from the foolish lockdowns, mask mandates, and Wuhan Virus vaccines than they have from the virus itself.

If you’re going to lie to further a narrative, you should at least be good at it—especially if you’re sitting on the highest court in the land. This was indeed an embarrassing effort by the lying left!
