There Is No Such Thing as a Public Health Expert

– March 24, 2021

“Self-proclaimed public health experts are really nothing more than aspiring autocrats who happen to populate governments and academic departments. Given the lack of actual expertise or competition in those fields, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that these same individuals also happen to have atrocious track records when it comes to preventing and treating disease spread.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

The Chicken Little Act Isn’t Working – COVID Mania Is Wearing Off

– March 19, 2021

“People who can move the needle and shape opinions are finally speaking out against the failed draconian mandates, from scientists to doctors to politicians to other influential individuals, they came to the party a year late, but at least they’re here now. The repeated Chicken Little act is getting old and tiresome. Eventually, people have come to realize that the sky is not, in fact, falling.” ~ Jordan Schachtel


Great Barrington Declaration Scientists with Gov. DeSantis in Florida

– March 18, 2021

“Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, on the one-year anniversary of the lockdowns, invited back the scientists behind the Great Barrington Declaration, signed at the offices of the American Institute for Economic Research, for a roundtable on the Coronavirus and the policy response. It is exceptionally educational, and points to the reality that the lockdowners have lost the debate.” ~ AIER


Fauci and the Communists

– March 10, 2021

“It’s important to recall that the United States and over 100 countries initiated lockdowns exclusively because of the ‘data’ that was being transmitted out of Wuhan. It was faulty, unchallenged Chinese data, repeated by authoritative figures like Fauci and his colleagues, that convinced the world to undergo lockdowns and embrace early, aggressive ventilation of COVID-19 patients, among other botched, unscientific treatment and mitigation measures.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

Anatomy of the Nursing Home Death Warrants

– February 16, 2021

“The buck does indeed stop with the elected leaders who made the fateful decisions to send sick COVID patients into nursing homes, lock down their states, and mask up their citizens in perpetuity, but that’s only half of the story. The bad data they used almost exclusively came from the Gates network, which has trafficked in pseudoscience and has demonstrated complete incompetence and reckless forecasting since the beginning of last year.” ~ Jordan Schachtel


Pandemic Policy: A Big-Picture Lecture (Video)

– February 10, 2021

“I was honored to be invited to Hillsdale College to provide an overview of my work on pandemic policy and lockdowns. Modeling played a crucial role. In that sense, pandemic policy seems to have repeated many errors that afflicted economics in decades past. This lecture assesses the predictive merit of these models and their speculative attempts to manipulate and mitigate viruses through coercive policies.” ~ Phillip Magness


People Only Pretend to Practice Social Distancing

– February 4, 2021

“Never before in the history of humanity have governments imposed universal rules for how close we can get to each other in the normal course of life. Does this not trigger some sense that we are being trolled? It should.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker


Faces of Lockdowns (Part 2)

– February 1, 2021

While data, statistics, historical allusions, and appeals to morality all demonstrate the disastrous nature of lockdowns, none show the devastation as vividly as personal stories from those suffering the most. In the second part of this series, we continue our interviews with working New Yorkers and found the situation to be just as suspected: businesses on the brink of shutting down for good, students struggling to learn, and unmatched frustration.
