Note from Tom Woods

 Once in a while I like to share something I receive in my inbox.

The lockdown insanity has crushed who knows how many people -- tens, hundreds of millions? Billions? -- some of whom write to me. Publicly, none of these people are allowed to say anything about it.

That's what I consider the creepiest rule about COVID lockdowns.

If you break this rule you'll be called cold and callous -- for daring to care about your own life and everything you've poured your heart into.

Because the only thing that matters in the world is COVID.

Not your kids, whom the lockdowners have gleefully sacrificed. Not your life savings -- why, who can think about money when we're all obsessing monomaniacally about one thing?

Oh, and not your business (obviously!), not your physical health (sorry we canceled all those procedures!), not your family, not your friendships, not your mental health, not normal human connection, not relationships, nothing.


Because, don't you know, it spreads "exponentially" -- as every midwit screamed at us in March.

(Except it doesn't, obviously.)

At any rate, here's what I received from a Californian today:

While I’m sure this is repetitive, I can’t imagine it’s never not good to hear that your emails are a godsend. Throughout quarantine my husband and I have been stuck in California, or as I like to call it, Newsom’s sadistic playground.

We had plans to move to Tennessee to help family in failing health and pick up more responsibilities in the family business, but all of that was dashed with the lockdowns. Work has dried up, our savings are now gone, and with everyone literally fleeing the state, Tennessee real estate has skyrocketed well beyond what we had been looking at in February. To say we are disheartened is probably one of the top ten understatements of this year.

Our friends and family are fairly like-minded, but even my brother -- who has a BS in Economics -- couldn’t understand why stimulus checks hurt more than they helped. Even my cousin -- who is an ER nurse -- drank the lockdown Kool Aid and warned against my skepticism of tests in the beginning, though I’m happy to say she’s slowly coming around.... I have felt so alone in my outrage for months.

Relationships have been strained, and a handful actually severed over the quarantine. I can’t even talk about it in my own home now, because it’s too upsetting and unfruitful to complain about the current state of things. Needless to say, reading each morning about how you crush the COVID Cult is one of my few sources of sanity these days.

I will be honest, my family technically broke the state-mandated rules for Thanksgiving. We had a multi-household camping trip at the beach, in the sunshine and fresh air, and about twenty of us crammed onto a couple of picnic tables under the stars for our turkey dinner. We didn’t wear masks between bites, and we definitely consumed alcohol and sang songs together.

You know what the darnedest thing is, though? Not one of us got sick.

Newsom has now dropped us and all neighboring counties a tier (his arbitrary system for how strict a lockdown he will impose) and now we can’t even eat outside at restaurants anymore. We have a local favorite that we’ve frequented throughout the quarantine in hopes that we can keep it afloat, but being closed until Christmas might be what does it in. What does all of our local businesses in. I’ve never known this amount of despair and impotent rage before. Clearly, California’s definition of life is different from mine....

Thank you for your voice in the midst of this chaos. Thank you for letting people like myself know that we aren’t alone in this insanity. And if you could somehow bring the fight to California, you’d save more lives than Newsom claims his tactics have saved.

Gratefully, A Reluctant Californian

I am receiving boatloads of emails like this every day. Nothing I've ever written about has resonated with more people.

You are keeping me sane, people tell me.

I have never heard that before.

I've covered lots of topics before, but this one is truly unique. It's as if you and I are living in different realities from some of the people around us. Major cities are at 95%+ mask compliance, and some people really think a lack of masks is the problem. They think staying home is the key to making progress, when heavily locked down California has more hospitalizations per million than completely open Florida. (Not to mention, Florida has the country's fifth-oldest population, while California is all the way down at number 44.)

And not to mention:

You're a bad person for not believing in their rain dances.

Well, the full keep-you-sane package includes this newsletter, to be sure, but it also includes what I call the Tom Woods Show Elite.

As I've mentioned previously, I recently moved the private Tom Woods Show Elite group off Facebook, for obvious reasons. It's on MeWe now. Their platform is easy to learn, and very similar to Facebook.

You can become my contact over there:

The group consists of good, smart, friendly folks (including the old man here) who will keep you sane when everyone you know thinks Dr. Fauci is a hero and everyone should keep staying home.

If you'd like to become a member of my private group, where you'll be surrounded by normal people and be able to stay up on what's actually happening, as opposed to panic-mongering lunacy, entry is this way:

How statistics lie about COVID

I got an email today saying the number of students at Utah Valley University testing positive to COVID-19 had increased by 152% last week. How many cases at UVU? The percentage doesn't say.

The numbers are 198 since the start of the semester and 58 in the last seven days. So that is about 0.5 percent of 40,000 students. How does that compare with other schools? UVU's neighbor BYU has 203 cases. 

As I write, I am within walking distance of Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. Of a student body of 6800 students, 377 have had positive results since the beginning of the semester. That is 5.5 percent.  Maryville is located in Nodaway County, which has a population of 23,370. The county has had 700 cases of COVID-19. That's about 3 percent of the population.

Utah county has a population of 600,000 with 14,476 COVID cases. That is about 2.4 percent of the population. Utah's governor has increased the infection level to orange from yellow this week.

Percentages alone don't tell the whole story. You need to see numbers as well as comparisons with other organizations and locations.

ACUF reports on Congress voting

Two Missouri Lawmakers Receive Awards for Conservative Voting Records

Alexandria, VA – The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF), chaired by Matt Schlapp and host of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), has just released its 49th Edition of its annual Ratings of Congress. The ratings are designed to reflect how well lawmakers adhere to conservative principles.

In the 2019 session, two members of the Missouri congressional delegation received awards for earning scores of 80% or higher from ACUF:
  • Rep. Jason Smith (93%)
  • Rep. Sam Graves (81%)
Missouri’s other Republican members received the following scores: Rep. Billy Long (79%), Sen. Josh Hawley (77%), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (76%), Rep. Ann Wagner (75%), Sen. Roy Blunt (68%), and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (62%).

Both of Missouri’s Democrat representatives, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (7%) and Rep. William “Lacy” Clay (4%), qualified for ACUF’s “Coalition of the Radical Left” for earning scores below 10%.

For the 2019 Ratings of Congress, 130 of 535 lawmakers received awards for conservative voting records of 80% or above. Compared to the 2018 session, House Republicans improved their average score (77% to 82%). The Pelosi-led House Democrats continued to push further left, falling 5 points (8% to 3%). Sen. Schumer earned a 0% while the Senate overall average fell (46% to 41%).

ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability analyzed every vote taken last session to produce this year’s scorecard which samples a wide array of issues relating to fiscal, tax, regulatory, education, environment, Second Amendment rights, election security, life, and government integrity. All lawmakers in America at the federal and state levels are scored on a 100-point scale.

YouTube censored viral video of doctors calling for end of quarantine

Interestingly, Erickson and Massihi spoke to Fox News host Laura Ingraham Monday evening just before the video was removed. After the interview, when Ingraham discovered the video had been taken down, she noted relevant comments regarding censorship that YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki had recently made.

"Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy ... [removal] is another really important part of of our policy," Wojcicki reportedly said.

Twitter bans popular conservative for joke Joe Biden meme

The blaze has reported that Twitter has suspended a popular conservative account for posting a joke meme about presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The Biden campaign installed a create-your-own "Team Joe" meme generator on its campaign website. It became an opportunity for social media jokesters to create fake endorsements.

Soon Twitter was besieged by fake Joe Biden "endorsements" featuring "the devil, several members of the media including CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, 'Corn Pop,' and a 'lying dog-faced pony soldier.'"

Popular conservative account, ALX, run by a production administrator for Turning Point USA, took advantage of the Biden campaign's meme generator by posting an endorsement from Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping.

Twitter suspended the AXL account. RedState wrote about the suspension and the offending tweet. An example of the AXL meme and RedState's commentary is below.

Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.
