“Lockdown 2.0”: This New Wave Of Lockdowns Will Ensure The U.S. Remains In An Economic Depression Through The 2020 Election

By Michel Snyder,

Another wave of lockdowns has begun, and that is really bad news for the U.S. economy.  The first wave of lockdowns resulted in the permanent closing of more than 100,000 U.S. businesses, colossal lines at food banks around the nation, and the loss of tens of millions of jobs.  Needless to say, this new wave of lockdowns will make things even worse, and some are speculating that this is precisely what Democrats want.  If the U.S. economy continues to fall apart as we approach the election in November, the thinking is that this will make President Trump look bad and will make it more likely that people will cast votes for Democrats.  But there is also the possibility that this could backfire in a huge way for the left.  If millions of Americans start to identify the Democrats as “the party of the lockdowns”, that could actually greatly help President Trump in November.

At this point, the battle lines are becoming quite clear.  President Trump and other top Republicans are strongly against more lockdowns, but Democratic politicians in many areas of the country are starting to institute them anyway.  In fact, we just learned that all schools in Los Angeles, San Diego, Atlanta and Nashville will be closed at the beginning of the new school year…

Resisting pressure from President Donald Trump, three of the nation’s largest school districts said Monday that they will begin the new school year with all students learning from home.

Schools in Los Angeles, San Diego and Atlanta will begin entirely online, officials said Monday. Schools in Nashville plan to do the same, at least through Labor Day.

Other major cities are expected to follow suit.  Of course considering the quality of the education in most of our public schools, most of those kids won’t exactly be missing too much.

Ultimately, closing the schools won’t have too much of an economic impact, but shutting down most of the businesses in our largest state certainly will.  On Monday, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a comprehensive lockdown for 30 California counties which account for “about 80 percent of California’s population”

Newsom, a Democrat, announced during a press briefing that all bars across the state must close up shop and that restaurants, wineries, tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums and card rooms must suspend indoor activities.

The governor also announced that all gyms, places of worship, malls, personal care services, barbershops, salons, and non-critical offices in counties on the state’s “monitoring list” had to shut down under the new order. The order affects more than 30 counties which are home to about 80 percent of California’s population.

Newsom is a political opportunist, and I guarantee you that he wouldn’t be doing this unless he truly believed that it would help Democrats in November.

But I think that Newsom and other top Democrats have greatly underestimated how much the American people detest COVID-19 restrictions at this point.  We have been witnessing a huge backlash all over the country, and even though California is far more liberal than most other states, a backlash has been brewing there as well.

If the Democrats are not very careful, they are going to lose an election that they could have very easily won.

First of all, they should have never nominated Joe Biden.  It is obvious to everyone that he is physically and mentally declining at a very rapid pace, and videos of him “acting creepy” will be viewed millions upon millions of times over the coming months.  Democrats have known about Biden’s creepy behavior for many years, but they decided to give the nomination to him anyway.

Secondly, most top Democrats have refused to strongly denounce the rioting, looting and violence that have happened around the nation, and this is going to push a whole lot of people toward the Republicans.

Thirdly, the backlash against these new lockdowns is going to be directed primarily toward Democrats.  If Democratic politicians push too far, this will be an issue that deeply hurts them in November.

But despite all of these mistakes, it is possible that the Democrats could still come out on top, because Trump and the Republicans are making lots of political mistakes as well.

If Trump wants to make a comeback in the polls, he really needs to fully embrace an anti-lockdown message, because that would strongly resonate with tens of millions of voters.

The first wave of lockdowns certainly didn’t stop the spread of the virus, and more lockdowns will not stop it from spreading either.  And now three separate scientific studies have shown that COVID-19 antibodies disappear very, very rapidly, and that means that a vaccine is not going to end this crisis and we will never reach a point of “herd immunity”.  So we are going to have to find a way to function effectively as this virus circulates around the globe year after year, because it isn’t going to go away.

We simply cannot shut down the economy every time the number of cases starts to surge again.  The damage that we have already done to the U.S. economy has been incalculable, and now these new lockdowns will do even more damage.

But the WHO continues to insist that more restrictions are needed

“Let me be blunt, too many countries are headed in the wrong direction, the virus remains public enemy number one,” WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual briefing from the U.N. agency’s headquarters in Geneva.

“If basics are not followed, the only way this pandemic is going to go – it is going to get worse and worse and worse.”

What would the WHO have us do?

Would they like us to all lock ourselves in our homes indefinitely?

The WHO keeps touting a future vaccine, but if COVID-19 antibodies disappear after just a few months, there is no way that a vaccine is going to end this pandemic.

And many Americans will never, ever take any COVID-19 vaccine under any circumstances.

As I discussed in an article that I posted earlier, it looks like we are just going to have to accept the fact that COVID-19 is going to be around year after year.

It is easy for the “experts” to tell us that everyone should just stay home, but the price tag for the first wave of lockdowns was astronomical.  Thanks to all of the emergency measures that Congress passed, the U.S. government ran a budget deficit of 864 billion dollars in the month of June…

The US budget deficit surged to a record-breaking $864 billion in June, the Treasury Department said on Monday. The increase is the product of the federal government’s efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout.

The government collected about $240 billion in tax revenue in June, the Treasury said, and federal spending overall reached $1.1 trillion.

To put that in perspective, it took from the founding of our nation until 1980 for the U.S. government to accumulate a total of 864 billion dollars of debt.

And now we have added that much to the national debt in just one month.

We simply cannot keep doing this.

No matter what we do, COVID-19 is going to keep spreading, and we are going to have to learn how to deal with this virus for a very long time to come.

More lockdowns are definitely not the answer, but unfortunately many of our politicians are convinced otherwise.

So U.S. economic conditions will continue to deteriorate, and the economic depression that began earlier this year will continue through the end of 2020 and beyond.

  1. “Ultimately, closing the schools won’t have too much of an economic impact”
    I have to disagree with this statement. If the kids are not in school how do the parents go to work?

  2. Tye Hampton….You Rock…and you are one of the very few people who understand this evil game they are playing with us….Trump is Cabal…he is playing the poor embattled president who just can’t do what he wants to do….because he can’t, the Cabal would remove him the same way they removed other not so co-operative presidents…but Trump is a willful participant…he will be rewarded handsomely for his sins against humanity…..Yes the Democrats are made to look like the bad ones, the evil ones…and they are acting like full on Soviets at this point…but the Republicans in congress are acting like NAZI’s so what’s the difference…not much…. Trump will win the Presidency again…because as he said, He is the Chosen One…not by God but by the Cabal…they Love him…he is the great divider and conquerer…. If you care to see it for what it is…. it truly becomes obvious the game that is being played…..The People who created this website can’t see past Trumps propaganda…. in the same manner the idiots in Germany fell for Hitler’s bullshit…the same way the Liberals love the Clintons and the Obama’s….these people are professional truth benders….they bend the truth just enough to stay free, but make no mistake about it you are not getting the whole truth….and there are no white hats in America….just professional soldiers and law enforcers who do what they are ordered to do….. and it does not matter who wins the next election….were stuck on a hell hole planet….full of brainwashed idiots…

    • Thanks Jose. I agree with much of what you said but, would however, say in defense of those running Prepare for Change, that they, often, present ‘all sides’ of the issues (or try to, I truly believe), and do post a tremendous amount of truthful, educational, and valid, information. Prepare for Change is one of the only site’s on the ‘white web’ which does this… I’m deeply grateful this site exists, have supported (though limited in my case) and highly recommend others financially support it because although these articles are often left, or right (yes seemingly often more heavily ‘right side of the’ isle), both views,, are presented here, even if sometimes only through comments, like mine.
      Everyone writing and submitting these articles is an individual and presents their opinions, or ‘facts’ as they, see them. As is, their Constitutional (Bill of Rights) right, here in the US (or supposed to be anyway). Prepare for Change, is “more-like” what media used to be, once upon a time, presenting all sides, even if it often appears to present a heavily, pro Trump, stance. They do, as the news once did, after presenting one side, they’d allow an ‘opposing commentary’, that’s where I try to voice my opinion…
      I just try to present a balance. Over my near 40 years of voting opportunity, I’ve voted Republican, I’ve voted Democrat, I even voted Independent a couple times (though without success to date because so many are caught up in the left-right brainwash), and nothing changed, the rich got richer, and the people were screwed over, I just think it’s time for something different, not just here in US but, worldwide, and there are some terrific sources presenting this alternate view, or alternative viewpoints, if you can still find them because most are now being censored heavily.
      Oh, and no, for anyone curious, I am not trying to build a; ‘political’ anything, or any organization (nor belong to any), nor posting for any political party, I’m just, trying to build awareness (like my ufology comments over the years – wish I could post a few hundred UAP/UFO pics here, that,, would give, an alternate perspective) that there is, another view,, besides the left/right divide, paradigm. One which drops this game of theirs ie: divide and conquer.
      We the people must stand united, all,, the people, not just here in US but, worldwide, against their paradigm, a stance against pure Facism, against pure Communism, against pure Capitalism, these all, are now, utterly and completely, proven, as failures…

      My personal opinion, We the People of this Earth, have to find a more ‘Communal path’ working together as a country, and world, if we are to truly, finally meet those, in these UAP/UFO craft, I have photographed, thousands and thousands, of times. Indeed, that is a world I’d want to see, and live in, one which will be accepted into the universe of beings, visiting us, accepted as equals, accepted peacefully. If anything, this is, my goal. I just do not believe, do not see, after 40-50 years of this ongoing political BS, that either political party, is going to get us there, and we do need, truly need,, to get ‘there’, and now, is a critical moment in human history, we might just institute change, that will get us going there.
      Sure, I have followed Cobra here, and I sincerely hope,, Cobra is right, that we are now on an optimal timeline that will get us there but, that remains, to be manifest. Until it does, my gratitude to PFC and the staff, for ‘permitting’ me to post this ‘other view’, through comments, not often seen elsewhere, in our all too, divided world.

  3. I warned in 2015-2016 that Mr Trump was playing the controlled opposition card to its fullest and was, by his own published words, a liar, and in my opinion (becoming very very clear now) a cabal, pawn… I further warned Mr Trump was,, and I quote myself from 2016:
    “Mr Trump is, a clear and present danger to our country”…

    Some realized it, enough,, to assure, he did not have the people’s mandate nor support and took office only through a “Republican gerrymandered, scam election”…

    To those that voted for this man, what did you get for your trust? Exactly what I warned you of…he has, destroyed,, America!! At least any semblance of the America we knew.

    Mr Trump is, yes, absolutely,, solely,, responsible (remember one great president saying “the buck stops here” ie; the president’s desk?) because he, and he alone, had the power in his hands (legitimately obtained or not) to order a national and state border closure and stop all, incoming international air travel on December 19, 2019, when the virus was detected or at least, by January 1st, 2020…. He did not!!!
    The results are unequivocally,, Mr Trumps responsibility,, including:
    1. All American (US) deaths as a result of his,, not only, not, shutting our borders but, not ordering the state’s to close their borders to all, interstate travel and air travel between the states, immediately upon detection of the virus in the US.
    2, All businesses now bankrupt or in process thereof are his, and his alone, direct responsibility.
    3. All evictions as a result of lost jobs, and any and all rise in homelessness included are, his responsibility, alone.
    4. The rip off of the American people by the wealthy thru a “stimulus” package he signed, which was 4 months late, and lacked any recurring triggered payments to legitimately “needy” individuals of at least the $1200 month, so that now, 4 months later, with the rich having filled their pockets with government aid running up the deficit and national debt, while the people, that really need the help, are stuck trying to make that measly,, one time,, check,, a scrap,, tossed from the slave master’s table, to last 4 months (or perhaps far more), which is utterly unrealistic (what is that now, less than $8 per day for the ‘average’ citizen). It’s an insult,, and a joke, that one could laugh at were the circumstances not so dire. People should be enraged at the rich ripping off US taxpayers like this, while the poor starve.
    I could go on, but, that’s enough to undeniably make my point.

    Yes, the current economic disaster and state of the nation, it’s saddest, in all American (US) history, is Mr Trump’s doing, unequivocally and undeniable. However, after seeing the robbery of America by the Republicans (corporate America) and the murder of innocents with a virus (or the MSM media campaign and fear), I would not want to see what the Democrats under Hillary, might have done, which could, have been, perhaps, far worse, yes. Yet that, does not negate Mr Trump’s responsibility.

    The point here is, it’s time to vote them out, vote them all,,, out.
    Either by withholding your vote (and be sure you are in-registered or they’ll use 1/2 your vote on the two party’s to ensure their maintained hegemony) or, vote against the two party system voting independent, so we can begin to dismantle this constitutionally illegal corrupt cabal state that is enslaving America and, the world.
    You might,, have, this one last election only, to do it, although as one, off platform comment, I read, put it so well;
    Arguing about which of the two parties Dem/Rep candidates, to vote for,,, is like being on the sinking Titanic, and arguing about the placement of the deck chairs, as the ship (of state) slips beneath the waves…

    We the people must act, one way or another, or face the consequences. I still warn you all: “Mr Trump is a clear and present danger to our nation, now undeniable but, the two party system, is a cabal run entity, and it is an enormous risk, to allow either, to hold any power in this country what so ever, any more, and if any one of you thinks differently, you are sadly uneducated as to the truth and need to shut off the main stream media” (including and especially Fox News because it’s very likely you’ve fallen for their lying brainwashing campaign. One smart man once said, “the brainwashed don’t know they are brainwashed, because they are, brainwashed”. So pull your brain out of the spin cycle) and start to “read”. I highly recommend if you can find his material online or off, as a starting point, Mr David Icke (not running for office btw) and the materials of Miss Karen Hudes (Twitter) as an excellent place to start but, start to educate yourself today, you only have a couple months before the election, and if you vote, you are choosing to accept, whatever karma comes from that choice.

    As a true people’s patriot, my conscience is clear, I voted for neither party in 2016, and refrained from registration. I have no part in the karma of, what happened…Wouldn’t you, like to be able to, say the same, in four years hence… because the potential storm coming the next 4 years politically economically and potential world wide war, might make this 4 years look like a gentle breeze on a nice summers day.

    I say this for all of you, karmically:
    If you must vote, vote them all (both cabal owned and operated parties) out.

  4. Here in Michigan our democratic governor has found a loophole that allows her to to push executive order after executive order, I believe 130 is the count now since she took office, without legislative approval. We are collecting signatures to Repeal the 1945 Act but we face another lockdown and current mandatory mask wearing, even outdoors in 80 to 90 degree heat.

    This governor came out of college and went straight to work for George Soros a leading satanist. She runs the leftist satanist playbook like her political career with the far left depends on it for she is hoping Biden will pick her as a running mate.

  5. Excellent article! Only one thing I would change is to spell it out that the corona virus (along with rhino and influenza) has actually (its descendants) been part of human biology since very early in our evolution (a.k.a. common cold) as a species and not simply a one year phenomena.

  6. Just one quick and salient point: No virus affecting people’s health, and by extension the world economy is any president’s fault. Might as well blame devastating earthquakes on him too. Makes as much sense. Stupid people!
