Joe Biden is inching closer to becoming president of the United States.
Early signs point to his presidency being a disaster for this country.
And now officials are pushing hard for one deadly coronavirus policy.
Joe Biden ran his presidential campaign almost entirely from his basement and spread a message of fear and despair.
And Biden’s presidency will likely be based on those same principles.
Even though the World Health Organization and hundreds of infectious disease experts around the globe are warning against lockdowns, Biden seems primed to move in that direction.
Pro-lockdown Democrats are promising another round of harsh lockdowns and they’re calling for Thanksgiving and Christmas to be “canceled.”
Dr. James Hamblin wrote in The Atlantic:
“Many local health departments, mayors, and governors have stepped up. In Baltimore and Chicago, public-health directives have clearly advised people not to gather for the holiday. But our landscape is also dotted with local leaders who are unable or afraid to go nearly so far. Telling people not to gather for a holiday is, of course, an unpopular message. So I’m doing it.”
He’s not the only health official, journalist, or pro-lockdown leader pushing for tighter controls.
California governor Gavin Newsom has called for even more draconian measures that include wearing masks even when going for a walk alone.
But like all hypocritical elites, Newsom got caught disobeying his own orders.
EXCLUSIVE: We've obtained photos of Governor Gavin Newsom at the Napa dinner party he's in hot water over. The photos call into question just how outdoors the dinner was. A witness who took photos tells us his group was so loud, the sliding doors had to be closed. 10pm on @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/gtOVEwa864

Doctors have also warned that navel-gazing about COVID is going to lead to excess deaths due to neglected cancer screenings and tests for deadlier infectious diseases like tuberculosis, which is on the rise.
The science is not being followed by world leaders.
Many of them are either panicking and acting out of fear, or using the virus as a pretext to assert more control over the population.
Thankfully, some members of government are speaking out.
Senator Rand Paul injected some common sense into the discussion and said:
“We can’t go on like this forever…Today, Biden’s talking more about a lockdown…this is absolutely why he’s going to be a terrible president if we get him. He’s going to ruin the country. Lockdowns don’t work. And in fact, all of the evidence on mandatory masks show that they don’t work either.”
If Biden gets into the White House, panic and fear will be his guiding forces.
