NFL Mask Rules Absurdity


The National Football League (NFL) has jumped with fervor into establishing and enforcing mandates that players and coaches wear masks in the name of countering coronavirus. The NFL is taking this action despite it not being demonstrated that masks provide any net protection against coronavirus infection, and despite the fact that coronavirus does not pose a major risk of death or even serious sickness for most people.

New York City Government Schools with 0.18 Percent Random Coronavirus Tests Positive Rate Are Shutting Down In-person Classes


How absurd can the coronavirus panic become? Let the New York City government school system illustrate. Despite a random testing of school system students and teachers finding only 0.18 percent testing positive for coronavirus (a miniscule amount likely even inflated with false positive results), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to use a supposed major coronavirus threat as an excuse for shutting down in-person classes throughout the New York City school system.

Expect Some State Governments to Resist a Countrywide Lockdown


Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden seems to want to impose a countrywide lockdown in the name of countering coronavirus. While some state governors who have been imposing their own coronavirus crackdowns for over half a year can be expected to cheer such a move by the United States government, other governors, along with many state legislators, can be expected to resist such a US government mass infringement on the liberty of people in their states.

Ready for Months of Biden Lockdown?


Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been saying during his presidential campaign that he favors locking down the entire county if scientific advisors tell him that is the right course for dealing with coronavirus.

President Trump Can Win Reelection Even If Unsuccessful in Election Recounts and Court Challenges


President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is pursuing recounts and court challenges in an effort to establish that Trump won the popular vote in several states that media organizations have said were won by Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden. Even if the campaign’s efforts are unsuccessful, state legislators in some or all of these states, should they conclude the election in their states was won by Trump, could exercise their power under the United States Constitution to award Trump’s electors in those states entrance to the Electoral College that will vote in December on who becomes president and vice president.

Here is an update: In each state and Washington, DC, a majority of voters approved drug war rollbacks on Tuesday.

Scott Atlas Offers a Very Washington, DC Apology


Scott Atlas, a coronavirus policy advisor for President Donald Trump, was recently interviewed about coronavirus policy by Afshin Rattansi at the RT show Going Underground. That should be no surprise. Talking with someone at RT is one among various avenues Atlas has pursued to try to put his coronavirus policy views out for more people to hear.

Mask-hating Republicans Make for a Better Road Trip


Traveling around Texas, I have found that areas where election votes go strongly in favor of Republican candidates tend, during the coronavirus crackdown, to be the best for stopping for gas, food, or other shopping, or just to use a restroom. In these areas it seems I am least likely to be accosted by some person telling me to put on a mask. Indeed, often in these areas a store will not have a “Masks Required” sign on the door and employees will not be wearing masks or will be wearing them on their chins or with their noses exposed.
