People still seem to have it in their heads that this virus stuff is temporary. There is no evidence that it is temporary.
Right now, we know that this virus is not even a little bit dangerous to anyone other than the extremely old or the chronically ill. That is to say, it’s the exact same thing as the flu.
Yet we are keeping all of these extreme measures in place. That means that the measures are not in any way connected to the dangerousness of the virus. That means that the measures are in place for some other reason. That means that they won’t lift the measures until they want to for some other reason.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said border restrictions between Canada and the United States because of the novel coronavirus pandemic would be lifted “pretty soon”, just hours after the two countries confirmed they would remain in place until at least Oct. 21.
“We’re looking at the border with Canada. Canada would like it opened and we want to get back to normal business,” Trump told reporters in Washington. “We’re going to be opening the borders pretty soon.”
There was no immediate explanation from the White House for the discrepancy or what Trump meant by “pretty soon.”
On Twitter, Canada’s Minister for Public Safety Bill Blair confirmed a month-long extension of border restrictions. “We will continue to base our decisions on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe.”
Sources in Washington and Ottawa this week said the measures on the border would most likely have to be rolled over until at least the end of November.
The month-long extension announced earlier on Friday, which does not cover trade or travel by air, follows restrictions first imposed in March and rolled over several times as a means to contain the spread of the virus. They were due to expire on Sept. 21.
The United States has similar restrictions on the border with Mexico and these will also now be in effect until Oct. 21, said Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
I doubt that any borders are ever going to open again for the average person. They will continue to bring in brown-skinned immigrants. But they have zero reason to say, “open the borders, let people move around again.” The people have already accepted that they cannot move around, so there is no reason to let them do it again.
The elite didn’t benefit from people moving around, and they didn’t like it. They don’t want you to have any freedoms. If you sacrifice your freedoms, they will not give them back to you.
By the way, when you type “Trump” into Twitter right now, one of the top tweets is a Canadian furry, with a Pizzagate pedophile reference in its name, condemning Trump wanting to reopen the border.
It’s a good idea to keep them out.
