Biden's First Day as a Dictator + Evidence Suggests Lockdowns Might Not Work || EP 390
Unemployment During the Pandemic Expected to Cause 900,000 US Deaths, New Economic Study Finds COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows Biden Executive Actions so far Count non-citizens in U.S. Census again. This reverses President Trump's order in July 2020 to not count undocumented Americans, which would affect federal allocation of money and federal representation. Reversing these Trump immigration restrictions is all great. Biden also issued a memorandum telling Homeland Security to take action "to preserve and fortify" the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Rejoin the World Health Organization (WHO), which the Trump administration was in the process of leaving. Mr. Biden is also looking to reestablish the U.S. as an active leader at the WHO.  In one such order, Biden disbanded Trump's "1776 Commission" on "patriotic education." In an "Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government," Biden revoked Trump's September 2020 order (titled "Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping") banning certain types of diversity training for government employees, contractors, or grant recipients—then added a new diversity working groups, commissions, and protocols that maybe feel like social justice and keeps government bureaucrats busy but fails to produce meaningful or tangible results. Extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums. Continue "pause" on student loan payments until September 30. Rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement.  End Keystone XL pipeline End so-called "Muslim travel ban” Stop border wall construction. Need someone to talk to? Interested in learning how to Day Trade?

Profit Seekers v. SJWs – The Ideological Failure of Progressivism egalitarians, however intelligent as individuals, deny the very basis of human intelligence and of human reason: the identification of the ontological structure of reality, of the laws of human nature, and the universe. In so doing, the egalitarians are acting as terribly spoiled children, denying the structure of reality on behalf of the rapid materialization of their own absurd fantasies. Not only spoiled but also highly dangerous; for the power of ideas is such that the egalitarians have a fair chance of destroying the very universe that they wish to deny and transcend, and to bring that universe crashing around all of our ears. Since their methodology and their goals deny the very structure of humanity and of the universe, the egalitarians are profoundly antihuman; and, therefore, their ideology and their activities may be set down as profoundly evil as well. Egalitarians do not have ethics on their side unless one can maintain that the destruction of civilization, and even of the human race itself, may be crowned with the laurel wreath of a high and laudable morality.   Murray N. Rothbard Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, pp. 19–20 LBRY / Odysee: BitChute: Minds: Archive:
