Eric Clapton and Van Morrison’s Musical Collaboration Against Coronavirus Crackdowns

In October, I wrote about marquee musicians Van Morrison and Eric Clapton speaking out against coronavirus crackdown measures that greatly restrict live music performances, as well as Morrison’s preforming in concerts and recording protest songs to challenge the crackdowns, with profits from the protest songs being used to help musicians who have financially suffered due to the crackdowns.

Now Clapton and Morrison have moved beyond joint condemnation of some of draconian measures taken in the name of countering coronavirus. They have joined in a musical collaboration to record a song that challenges these measures. Sales of the song will raise money for Morrison’s charity helping financially harmed musicians.

Dennis Kucinich Says He Is Giving ‘Serious Consideration’ to Running for Cleveland Mayor

In March, I wrote about speculation Dennis Kucinich may run for mayor of Cleveland, Ohio in 2021. Kucinich was mayor of Cleveland in the 1970s before going on to other political activities including serving in the United States House of Representatives and running for president.

Here is an update: In a new interview with WKYC-TV Kucinich confirmed he is giving “serious consideration” to campaigning in 2021 for election again to the Cleveland mayorship.

Thousands of Guests Attend Secret New York City Wedding in Defiance of Coronavirus Crackdown

Some state and local governments in America have, in purported efforts to counter coronavirus, become in significant ways like communist countries suppressing religious activities while promoting certain favored large-scale political demonstrations. New York City has been a prime example of this development with Mayor Bill de Blasio praising select demonstrations in the streets while shutting down religious assemblies.

Joe Biden: I Do Not Want a National Shutdown; I Just Want a National Shutdown.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden declared that he would be ready and willing as president to follow the recommendation of scientists to shut down the country in the name of countering coronavirus. Then, on Thursday, Biden insisted he would not, as president, impose a national shutdown.

But, it turns out Biden, in his Thursday comments, was just playing a word game. He defined “shutdown” such that it describes something no government has undertaken in the name of countering coronavirus and something very different from what most people understand the term “shutdown” to mean in this context. Then Biden proceeded to describe the actions he wants to take that fall right in line with shutdowns governments have imposed and with what people generally understand as a coronavirus-related shutdown.

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.

How About Shutting Down the CDC, FDA, and other ‘Public Health’ Agencies?

Chicken Little governors and mayors across America are in the process of upping their coronavirus crackdowns. And Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden even appears to want to impose a countrywide lockdown in the name of countering coronavirus.

But, coronavirus is not a dangerous medical issue for most people. In contrast, draconian government actions taken in the name of countering coronavirus are a major threat causing great damage to people’s physical, mental, and economic condition. The “anticoronavirus” government actions also infringe liberty — prohibiting, through the imposition of prison-like mandates, much of what brings joy to life.
