Since the beginning of COVID Mania, we’ve been told to “listen to the public health experts.” Governments and the corporate media has identified this category to us as individuals (Dr. Fauci, Rachel Levine, Tedros Adhanom, Bill Gates) and groups (CDC, WHO, Gates Foundation, Imperial College, etc) that are supposedly the best resources out there for dealing with pandemics and disease spread. Want to know about how to deal with COVID-19? Follow orders from the omniscient public health experts, we’re told.
Sonnie Johnson started off by saying that 5 years ago she told Conservatives that black men are Capitalist and are more conservative than people think. They desire to be fathers to their children, coaches of their little league, pillars in their communities, etc. but no one listened to her. She said since then she is proved to be correct as President Trump just received the highest number of black men’s votes of any Republican President. She stated that the outcome of the 2020 election could have turned out differently had more focus been on Conservatives within these minority groups. Her response to what conservatism means to her is one of the best definitions that I have ever heard.
Congresswomen Virginia Foxx gave one of my favorite speeches on day two of the conference. Her speech focused on The Federal government not having any place in education. Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention education. The Biden Administration is using the pandemic to expand government’s role in our lives. Teachers’ unions are refusing to go back to school, and Biden will not push back against them, because of the support that they gave him. We are going to be paying for this for generations to come with our children losing this year of in-person instruction.
On February 25th I had the opportunity to attend CPAC 2021 in Orlando, Florida. This was my first time attending CPAC and I was unsure of what to expect. Little did I know that I was about to experience one of the best weekends of my life. As I arrived, one of the first people I saw was Judge Jeannine from Fox News, and I knew then this was the beginning of a great weekend.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently published a February 2021 MMWR report entitled “Decline in COVID-19 Hospitalization Growth Rates Associated with Statewide Mask Mandates — 10 States, March–October 2020.” This report focused on 10 sites that had been included in the Covid-19 Associated Hospitalization Surveillance Network.
There is a sense in the air that the pandemic is winding down, and the toxic culture of division, fear, and hatred along with it. Cases are down dramatically. Deaths too. Hospitalizations are no longer irregular. Restrictions are being repealed. You can follow all the action daily at the CDC’s new and unusually competent landing page on the virus (it only took them a year to build this).
At the February meeting of The Frederick County Conservative Club we empaneled four leaders from different walks of the political sphere to discuss “A Path Forward” heading into the 2021-2022 election cycles. It was an evening of strategies and ideas on growing our base, refining our messaging and bringing voters back to a Constitution centered community, state and country.
