☆ The First Trend Reversal Seen In The Exponential Growth Rate
New daily Coronavirus cases in the United States fell for the first time in over a week, according to the latest numbers from Worldometers. On Sunday March 29th, the US registered 18,469 new daily Coronavirus cases, which was down from 19,452 on Saturday. This could very well mark the beginning of a “peak” in new Coronavirus cases in the United States.
☆ The Longer The Shutdown Continues, The Greater The Cost
As the coronavirus pandemic continues across the world, leaders and policymakers have scrambled to respond to the growing health crisis. In the United States, multiple state governors have issued statements urging their citizens to follow social distancing guidelines. Other governors have taken more extreme measures, issuing orders to effectively lock down the entire state economy. The current goal of these responses has been to slow the spread of the virus in the hope of reducing the strain on the healthcare system. Discussion over the proper precautions is a necessity in such a time.
☆ Media basing their coverage on whether it will harm or help Trump.
The political media have been working extremely hard to craft a narrative that the spread of the coronavirus was essentially the fault of the man they had blamed for all other ills in recent years. How could the people not accept that narrative, particularly considering that most everyone in the media was pushing it?
☆ Another Institution Destroyed by Cultural Marxism
The Boy Scouts of America, after decades of being crippled by child sex abuse claims, announced early Tuesday it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, vowing to both “compensate victims” and “continue carrying out its mission for year to come.” In a statement announcing the filing, BSA said it “cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting.”
Approximately 6.1 million individuals dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office in February 2017, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
☆ Fighting for an America where individuals aren’t terrified to express their opinions
“Fear Society” is Natan Sharansky’s term for a socio-political order that flunks the “town square” test: People are too frightened to speak their mind in public spaces because they fear retribution. A victim of Soviet tyranny before emigrating to Israel, for Sharansky the consequences of free expression could be arrest, imprisonment, torture, and death. For us, the regime of political correctness, “cancel culture,” “microaggressions,” and “woke” commissars reinforces a similar repression, a “softer” one, as Tocqueville called it, but effective nonetheless in silencing dissent and promoting an illiberal progressive ideology.
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) announced its annual Dirty Dozen List of “mainstream entities” that are “major facilitators of sexual exploitation in the United States” on Thursday, and this year Amazon, Netflix, Twitter, Google, and the Chinese social media juggernaut TikTok made the list.
