During today’s press conference, Governor Little said “We are not going to return to normal until we have a vaccine.” He added that that could be 12-18 months away. He also said he expected people to do the right thing and get vaccinated but that if people didn’t, they would change the code. The Governor literally threatened forced vaccinations. Little touted the success of the stay at home orders and said we would only normalize life if certain criteria were met.
We have a few questions for Governor Little:
How do you know what will happen in one month, let alone 12 months, with this new, unknown organism? How do you know it will behave any differently than other influenza-like respiratory infections which die out in the summer due to increased sun exposure which raises vitamin D levels boosting our immune systems? Please show us the independent science that supports that statement?
Why is the state of Idaho on lockdown when the peak in cases occurred April 10, 2020 at which point a mere 6% of hospital bed capacity was required in the state?
Why did you renew an executive order with many factual errors? Recent science has shown Covid-19 was in the US as early as September or December of 2019 yet you state it was not here till January 2020. You state the need to expand our health care system capacity but Idaho’s capacity utilization peaked at just 6% of beds on April 10, 2020. Why do you claim “extreme peril” exists in Idaho to justify your executive order when there were only 2 lab confirmed and 3 probable cases of Covid-19 in the entire state from April 20-22, 2020?
Why are you perpetuating the myth that stay at home orders are responsible for the decline in Covid-19 cases when a growing number of studies have demonstrated that Covid-19 behaves in a cyclical way, irrespective of lockdowns?
Why are you ignoring the fact that Sweden never locked down yet has experienced the same disease cycle as the countries that did lock down without all the negative effects of these draconian policies?
Why are you supporting an antibody test when WHO officials say the antibody test may not work and that antibodies may not be proof of immunity? If antibodies are not proof of immunity why are you, an elected official, pushing vaccines which supposedly create immunity by producing antibodies?
Why are you ignoring prudent policies and recommendations by experts encouraging those at risk to self-isolate while those at low risk become exposed and develop immunity as this approach would be the safest for those at risk and truly protect them?
Why are you ignoring the research finding that tens of millions of Americans have already been exposed, without incident, proving that for vast majority of people, Covid-19 is not a threat?
Why are you, an elected official touting one approach to dealing with an infectious agent, a vaccine, from which commercial interests will benefit, when there are many other ways to deal with and manage disease beginning with a strong immune system but not ending with homeopathy, naturopathy, herbs, supplements, chiropractic and more? Please show us the legislation that empowers you to select the winners and losers?
Why are you promoting vaccines when no vaccine manufacturer, no doctor or nurse who administers vaccines, no health official, no elected representative has any liability for vaccines because federal legislation recognizes vaccines injure and kill some recipients? Will you be personally liable?
Why are you ignoring the country of India which used homeopathy prophylactically on the recommendation of the Prime Minister Modi and has experienced only 23,000 cases and 700 deaths in a nation of 1.3 billion?
Why is Idaho on lockdown when Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Health recently wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%).”
Where does the Constitution grant you the power to determine what is an essential business? Why is it safer to go to the grocery store or post office than it is to go to the hair salon or have someone mow the lawn?
Where does the Constitution grant you the power to violate our natural God-given rights in ANY event?
Why do you, an elected official, believe you have any say over what we put in our bodies?
