Illinois Mayor Grants Herself Power to Ban Guns During Coronavirus Pandemic

Government can also seize alcohol and gasoline, “take possession of private property.”

Champaign, Illinois mayor Deborah Frank Feinen signed an executive order giving herself the power to order the seizure of firearms, ammunition, alcohol and gasoline during the coronavirus pandemic.

The executive order also enables the government to “take possession of private property” and cut off an individual’s access to gas, water or electricity.

The city promised to “keep the public’s best interest in mind” while also handing itself the power to shut down all liquor stores and bars, although Gov. J.B. Pritzker has already ordered the shut down of all bars and schools across Illinois until March 30.

City manager Jeff Hamilton said, “None of the options will necessarily be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed.”

Illinois currently has 93 confirmed cases of coronavirus statewide.

Attempting to seize Americans’ guns and alcohol during a lockdown quarantine?

Yeah, good luck with that.

WarnerMedia CEO Apologizes After Saying COVID Pandemic Has Been ‘Really Good For CNN Ratings’

Jason Kilar provides accidental insight into why mainstream networks don’t want lockdown restrictions to end.

WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar apologized after celebrating the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has been “really good for (CNN) ratings.”

Kilar made the initial remarks during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference.

“It turns out that pandemic is a pretty big part of the news cycle, and that’s not going away anytime soon,” Kilar said.

“If you take a look at the ratings and the performance, it’s going well. And I think it’s going well because, A, the team at CNN is doing a fantastic job. And B, it turns out that the pandemic and the way that we can help inform and contextualize the pandemic, it turns out it’s really good for ratings,” he added.

WarnerMedia is the parent company of CNN.

After his comments received criticism, Kilar tried to walk them back, claiming, ” I would like nothing more than for this pandemic to be well behind us.”

Kilar’s hope that the pandemic is “not going away anytime soon” provides an insight into the agenda of networks like CNN when it comes to COVID-19 reporting.

Does CNN campaign against lockdown restrictions and mask mandates being lifted in the name of public safety, or is it more likely that a selfish motivation for maintaining high ratings is the real reason behind this editorial stance?

CNN recently enjoyed its best ever February in terms of overall viewers while also taking first place among viewers 25-54, the key demographic most valued by advertisers.

CNN Doctor Says Americans Should Mask Up & Social Distance Every Winter To Beat Flu

Face coverings are here to stay.

Dr. Paul Offit, a pediatrician who regularly appears on CNN, says Americans should wear masks and socially distance every winter in order to reduce flu hospitalizations and deaths.

“If we mask and social distance every winter, we will see a dramatic reduction in the flu, which usually causes hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of deaths,” Offit told the network.

As we previously highlighted, flu cases have virtually disappeared since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, with health authorities in England announcing that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year.

However, according to epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski, this is likely due to the fact that many flu infections are being falsely counted as COVID-19 cases.

Last month, Dr. Fauci also said that it’s to be expected Americans will be wearing masks for the rest of this year and into 2022.

A senior U.S. Army official also said that mask wearing and social distancing will become permanent, while CNN’s international security editor Nick Paton Walsh asserted that the mandatory wearing of masks will become “permanent,” “just part of life,” and that the public would need to “come to terms with it.”

Other prominent individuals, such as the World Economic Forum’s Klaus Schwab, have asserted that the world will “never” return to normal after the COVID pandemic.

“There will likely be more voluntary masking after the COVID pandemic has receded, especially during flu season,” writes Evan James. “But it’d be intolerable to expect to live in a “new normal” where masks and social distancing become a routine tool of government control, or where choosing not to mask becomes a cause for social ostracism.”

Majority of Brits Say They Will “Miss” Some or Many Aspects of Lockdown

Stockholm syndrome?

A new opinion poll in the UK finds that over half of Brits say they will miss either “some” or “many” aspects of lockdown despite the country now having been under some form of restrictions for nearly a year.

Yes, really.

The YouGov survey asked participants, “Do you think you will or will not miss any aspects of lockdown when it is over?”

9 per cent of respondents said they would miss “many” aspects of lockdown while 46 per cent said they would miss “some” aspects of lockdown – a combined total of 55 per cent.

Just 39 per cent of respondents said they won’t miss any aspects of lockdown.

Previous polls have routinely showed majority or plurality support for lockdown, with little concern for what innumerable observers have called the biggest imposition on civil liberties in British history.

One aspect that many will “miss” about lockdown is undoubtedly getting paid for doing nothing.

Under the government’s furlough scheme, those who can’t work from home have had 80 per cent of their wages covered by the state for almost a year, with that program to be extended until September despite the government saying all restrictions will be lifted by the end of June.

The prospect of having to work for their money will become a reality for some once again soon, although not for all given that the UK’s economy contracted the most in 300 years as a result of the lockdown, leading to 726,000 job losses.
