Americans Are Fleeing Lockdown States in Droves

And moving to open states that didn’t persist with draconian measures.

Data shows that Americans are fleeing states with harsh lockdown policies like California in droves and moving to states which are more open like Arizona.

According to figures released by North American Moving Services, Americans are moving at higher rates than 2019 despite the lockdown restrictions, suggesting that their mobility is likely because of them.

As Jeffrey A. Tucker highlights, the pattern clearly indicates that there is an exodus of people from liberal states that continue to enforce draconian lockdown measures and that they’re all moving to areas where authorities have largely resisted imposing harsh restrictions.

“Consider the top five cities that people are leaving: New York, New York; Anaheim, California; San Diego, California; Chicago, Illinois; and Riverside, California. All five of those cities remain even to this day in stringent lockdowns. Indoor dining in California is not permitted, and will only be permitted in Chicago starting next week. New York is still in lockdown, despite Andrew Cuomo’s call for the city to be reopened.”

“And where are people moving to? The top five destinations are: Phoenix, Arizona; Houston, Texas; Dallas, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; and Denver, Colorado. Georgia was the first state to reopen following the panicked lockdowns of March 2020. Arizona and Texas opened in July.”

Illinois, New York, and New Jersey are the states losing residents faster than any other while Idaho, Arizona, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina are leading the way for inbound population.

A recent Gallup poll also found that nearly half of Americans expressed a desire to live in a small town or rural area in 2020, a 9 percentage point increase on 2018 when they were asked the same question.

As we previously highlighted, the wider trend of people fleeing big cities has been amplified by the reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, but it is also connected to concerns about crime and social unrest.

A survey carried out by the Manhattan Institute last September found that 22 per cent thought the anemic post-COVID economy was the biggest issue affecting New York City while 21 per cent were concerned about crime and public safety.

After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, NYC removal companies reported that demand was off the charts, with people fleeing city life for larger homes in safer areas.

CNN Uses Creepy, Dystopian “Before Times” Rhetoric to Justify Empty Shelves

“They are laying narrative groundwork to prepare you for a world of shortages, scarcity, and incompetence.”

Questions are being asked of CNN after the network used the creepy dystopian phrase “Before Times” to describe a time pre-COVID when grocery shelves weren’t empty.

The phrase appears in a report about how grocery shelves “are not going back to normal this year” as a result of labor shortages and transportation restrictions.

“If you hoped grocery stores this fall and winter would look like they did in the Before Times, with limitless options stretching out before you in the snack, drink, candy and frozen foods aisles, get ready for some disappointing news,” states the article.

Note how “Before Times” is emphasized by its seemingly otherwise unnecessary capitalization.

The dystopian language appears to be another way of socially engineering Americans to accept “the new normal,” which will include rolling lockdowns, energy crises and food shortages.

Twitter users accused the network of weaponizing language to induce fearmongering.

“They say ‘The Before Times’ like COVID is equivalent to Jesus. Absolute lunatics,” tweeted Robby Starbuck.

“Interesting way of saying that we will have food shortages in Joe Biden’s America,” remarked Harrison Krank.

Another respondent warned that CNN would use the term to distract from the Biden administration’s incompetence and blame any problems on the pandemic.

“They are laying narrative groundwork to prepare you for a world of shortages, scarcity, and incompetence,” warned another respondent, “This isn’t an accident.”

Out of stock percentages in U.S. grocery chains have risen from 7-10% before the pandemic to as high as 18% in recent days.

Tucker Carlson On Gas Panic: “Somebody Did This To Us On Purpose”

It’s a “grimmer version of the 1970s”

Tucker Carlson warned Tuesday that the disruption in the Colonial Pipeline and the resulting shortage panic is being carried out by design.

Carlson noted that the situation represents a “grimmer version of the 1970s” with many states declaring emergency shortages, and resulting price gouging as a result of, we are told, “some mysterious gang of cybercriminals [who] hacked the software at a major American fuel supplier.”

Referring to the Biden administration, Carlson declared “The same lunatics who don’t believe in Human Biology immediately made a serious mess of our economy, it took them less than six months to do it.”

Comparing the scenes to Venezuela, Carlson noted that the New York Times says this is just another “conspiracy theory”.

Watch:

“On some level, let’s be honest about it, the White House approves of this disaster,” Carlson proclaimed, adding that “the lunatics plan to close every gas station in the entire United States, shuttered forever, to make way for some new as yet not quite defined means of transportation that will magically replace the gasoline engines that we have used for more than a hundred years.”

Carlson continued “bad federal policies are distorting the price of everything in this country from two by fours to diesel fuel to corndogs.”

“None of this is an accident just as it wasn’t an accident when the power went out in Texas over the winter,” the host continued, adding “It wasn’t a cold snap that did it. It was a federal policy that encouraged the state to rely on windmills which don’t actually work.”

“It’s not a natural cycle. Somebody did this to us on purpose,” Carlson warned.
