Democrat lawmakers are eager to put Covid-19 behind them and reopen schools and restaurants "as soon as possible."

After single-handily destroying New York City's economy by ordering restaurants and other businesses shut down for months, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo now wants to reopen his city.

"We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass," Cuomo tweeted Monday. "The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely."

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot also called for reopening her city's small businesses and schools "as quickly as possible."

Lightfoot said she plans to have a conversation with Gov. JB Pritzker about rolling back Covid-19 virus restrictions quickly.

"I want to get our restaurants and bars reopened as quickly as possible," she said.

Sen. Ted Cruz's advisor Omri Ceren tweeted: "Scientists, journalists, and blue city mayors have all just discovered - more or less at once - that it's critical to get America open again. Lucky break for everyone, that convergence."

The liberal news media, who helped drive the fear-mongering in 2020, have already removed the constant Covid-19 death counters that dominated their news broadcasts 24/7 for a year. No need for those pesky death count reminders anymore.

The next step is to report a "drop" in Covid-19 "cases" and decreased hospitalizations.

Some news outlets are already reporting a drop in new Covid-19 "cases" in Illinois in the past week. Right on schedule.

While reopening restaurants will be easy, Democrats will have a harder time convincing terrified parents to send their children back to school -- after scaring them to death for a year.

Tiffany Haddish and social media influencers are catching heat for "bullying" a young female doctor who disputed their Covid-19 conspiracy theories.

According to multiple reports, the unidentified doctor was bullied on the app "Clubhouse" by the comedienne and social media influencers with over 1 million followers each, such as Jason Lee, Joe Budden, and Instagram activist Chaka Bars.

Clubhouse is an invitation-only audio-chat that allows users to create private rooms.

Haddish, Budden, and Chaka Bars reportedly harassed several Black doctors on January 13, and even doxxed the doctors by sharing their personal information online.

The doctors were disputing conspiracy theories being spread by Haddish and others. Among the conspiracy theories is the government invented Covid-19 and social distancing to make it easier for satellites to do facial recognition.

Hours before the doctor was admitted to a hospital for attempted suicide, her friends took to social media to call out the celebrities.

One user tweeted: "Hey @joinClubhouse – there is a room called 'CH Bullying' full of celebrities and conspiracy theorists who are plotting to dox several black doctors by sharing their social media accounts to several thousand people. Can you please step in? #CHBullying."

Another user wrote: "Chakabars, Tiffany Haddish, Jason Lee and other 'celebrities' are plotting in a clubhouse room to take down a young black woman doctor and they even said 'ruin her life'. They are sharing her details in a group chat. How is this allowed @joinClubhouse? #chbullying."

Haddish responded to the allegations on her Twitter account. The "Girls Trip" actress claimed she was exercising her freedom of speech about Covid-19. She wrote, "Now People on clubhouse saying I am bullying because I just told the truth."

Haddish defended her actions, saying, "There is a special place in Gods Kingdom for people that like to lie and make up stories on other people. Funny how some people can't handle the truth!"

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who tested positive for Covid-19, blames Republicans who "cruelly refused" to wear masks during the Capitol riots.

Jayapal announced Tuesday that she tested positive for Covid-19. She blamed Republican lawmakers for refusing to wear masks as they huddled together in a secure chamber after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6.

In a statement released Tuesday, Jayapal, a Democrat, said, "I just received a positive COVID-19 test result after being locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one."

She continued: "Only hours after Trump incited a deadly assault on our Capitol, many Republicans still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic—creating a superspreader event ON TOP of a domestic terrorist attack."

Jayapal said GOP lawmakers should be "fully held accountable" for not wearing masks and for "endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy. I’m calling for every single Member who refuses to wear a mask in the Capitol to be fined and removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms."

But a video released by CBS News on January 6 shows Jayapal maskless as she huddled with other maskless lawmakers during the riots.

Jayapal is not wearing a mask for the entirety of the nearly 3 minute video. She is seen holding a makeshift gas mask which she doesn't wear. Jayapal routinely doesn't wear masks during committee hearings.

As the terrified congresswomen huddled together in fear, another maskless lawmaker prays loudly for divine intervention "in Jesus' name."

Three congresswomen tested positive for Covid-19 after the riots. Two of them wore face masks at all times.

Democrat New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Coleman tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday. She also blamed Republicans and pro-Trump supporters for her positive test.

Democrat Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore voted on the House floor for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker, just five days after announcing she tested positive.

Jayapal's office declined to respond when a reporter asked about the CBS video that showed the congresswoman not wearing a mask.

Bruce Willis says not wearing a face mask in an L.A. pharmacy was "an error in judgment".

The macho "Die Hard" actor was spotted without a face covering in a Rite Aid pharmacy in Los Angeles, California on Monday, Jan. 11, when an employee asked him to wear a face covering.

According to reports, Bruce was asked to leave the pharmacy when other customers became upset that he wasn't wearing a mask.

Willis, 65, wore a bandanna loosely around his neck as a fashion statement. But rather than pull the bandana up, Willis was photographed walking out of the store without making a purchase.

BACKGRID

Social media users ripped Willis for putting other lives in danger by not wearing a mask. One social media user said celebrities and politicians who don't wear masks believe they are invincible.

Willis has now responded to backlash over the incident, saying "It was an error in judgment. Be safe out there everyone and let's continue to mask up," he told People magazine in a statement.

Tonisha Lashay Barker jumped from a Tennessee highway overpass with her toddler son in her arms. Police say Barker, 26, and her 21-month-old son Jonathan Jones were killed.

The tragedy began when deputies with the Madison County Sheriff's Department received 911 calls about a woman who had attempted to crash her car into a gas pump at a Shell gas station on Law Road.

Witnesses say the female driver got out of the car with a small child and walked toward the nearby Interstate 40 overpass.

A few minutes later, another 911 caller said his truck was hit by a "large object" that had fallen from the bridge.

Authorities found the bodies of Barker and her son in a ditch near Exit 93.

Sheriff's spokesman Tom Maples told WKRN investigators are trying to determine a motive for the murder-suicide.

Barker's grandmother said she had been depressed for days. Her job at a Covid-19 testing site had ended last month.

As Covid-19 continues to surge and overwhelm hospitals in NY and California, many are pondering the riddle: Where have all the flu cases gone?

A top epidemiologist says the answer is simple: flu cases are now being counted as Covid-19.

"Influenza has been renamed COVID in large part," epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski told Just the News on Thursday.

"There may be quite a number of influenza cases included in the 'presumed COVID' category of people who have COVID symptoms... Those patients "also may have some SARS RNA sitting in their nose while being infected with Influenza, in which case the influenza would be 'confirmed' to be COVID."

Dr. Anthony Fauci, aka Dr. Doom, predicts "The worst is yet to come" and "Our darkest days in the battle against Covid-19 are ahead of us."

Yet Fauci fails to mention that influenza typically peaks between December and February. In fact, there is very little mention of influenza at all in the mainstream media these days.

Isn't it odd that they explain away the lack of flu cases by saying more people are wearing masks and social distancing?

Yet "dark days are ahead" because not enough people are wearing masks and social distancing.

The NY Times

An L.A. Times article from 2018 used the same apocalyptic language to describe influenza cases that are now being used to describe Covid.

Just replace the word "flu" with "Covid-19" in the article.

"Hospitals across the state are sending away ambulances, flying in nurses from out of state and not letting children visit their loved ones for fear they'll spread the flu. Others are canceling surgeries and erecting tents in their parking lots so they can triage the hordes of flu patients."

Actor Louis Gossett Jr. is recovering from Covid-19 at home after he checked himself out of a Georgia hospital because people around him were dying.

Gossett, 84, spoke by phone to Ryan Cameron, host of WAMJ-Majic 1075/975 in Atlanta, about the reason he left the hospital against medical advice (AMA).

Gossett told Cameron on Monday that he contracted the virus from a nurse who visited his home. He arrived at an emergency room on Dec. 27, but left shortly after seeing the chaos inside the hospital.

The Grammy-winning actor said he left the hospital because the staff was "extremely tired" and they were "losing the battle," he said he called his son and other family members, and they got him out of there.

Gossett said he wanted to thank his fans in Atlanta and around the world for the love, prayers and well wishes over the last few days.

"When there was a threat of me leaving the planet -- I didn't know I had that done that positive for so many people and I am grateful to the bottom of my heart. I want to say thank you so much for y'all. The love bounces back to you in a million fold. God is good all the time and I am so grateful that you've been there. It's just what the doctor ordered."

He said four or 5 doctors around the country sent him some medications, including eucalyptus tea and vitamins, to help his recovery.

When asked if he was for or against the vaccine, Gossett said, "I don't know what the vaccines is but I want it. It gives us a head start to go in the direction of taking better care of ourselves and one another. That's all it is. There's no Democrats, there's nothing but making saving mankind."

Gossett also discussed the lack of "purity" in young "girls of 6, 7, 8-years-old with that innocence that I've forgotten to see, I don't see it anymore. I see the young men, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10-years old with deep voices and getting ready to shoot one another. We need to take a chill pill. We all need to be saved."

Gossett had a message for so-called anti-maskers:

"Covid is real. Even it's not real -- just for the hell of it, wear a mask anyway. Cooperate with us. There's no such thing as impossible. Take the word 'impossible' out of your dictionary. We need to be together to take better care of ourselves, our children and one another."

Gossett is best known for his Academy Award-winning role in the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman and for portraying the character of Fiddler in the ABC miniseries Roots in 1977, among hundreds of film and TV roles.

Radio and TV host Larry King has been hospitalized for over a week, battling COVID-19, according to published reports.

The beloved newsman has been hospitalized in Los Angeles for 10 days and is not allowed any visitors, according to Roger Friedman's Showbiz 411.

King's estranged wife, Shawn King, and their two sons are said to be in constant contact with doctors to stay up-to-date on his progress.

Representatives for King have yet to comment on the news, but it's the latest health scare for the TV star, who spent his 87th birthday in hospital for heart-related issues.

He also previously overcame a heart attack, a stroke, prostate and lung cancer, and diabetes.

2020 was a rough year for King - his son Andy, 65, and daughter Chaia, 51, died within days of one another in August. Andy suffered a fatal heart attack, while Chaia passed away from lung cancer.

King is also father to Larry King, Jr. with former wife Annette Kaye.

Happy New Year! A special shout out goes to those of you who have stuck with me since I started my blog journey in 2007.

2020 changed our lives forever, as politicians and globalists figured out how to use fear mongering to control Americans and force their agendas.

Thanks to local lawmakers here in Georgia (Republican and Democrat) who refused to impose draconian restrictions such as lockdowns and mask mandates on Georgia residents.

Georgia is one of a handful of states that remains open during the Corona flu outbreak.

More people died from suicide, drug abuse, alcoholism and loneliness than from the pandemic itself in 2020.

As we say goodbye to 2020 and usher in 2021 with sadness and hope for a brighter future, free from tyranny and oppression, here are Sandrarose.com's most popular posts of 2020.

George Floyd made my Top 10 list twice. Floyd's death, at the knee of a Minneapolis police officer in May, became a flashpoint for Black Lives Matter riots and looting over the summer.

My number 1 most popular post in 2020 will surprise you!

A St. Louis police officer is recovering from a concussion after she was beaten with her own baton for telling a female customer to wear a face mask.

Police are still searching for the woman who beat the sheriff's deputy at a Shell station on North Tucker in downtown St. Louis on Christmas Day.

The altercation took place after the woman walked into the gas station with face mask in hand.

The 59-year-old deputy who was moonlighting as security asked the customer to put her mask on. Police say the woman became belligerent, fought with the deputy then beat the law enforcement officer about the head with her own baton.

Bystanders rushed over to help the wounded officer, who then used her baton to pummel the woman in her car before she managed to drive off.

Sheriff Vernon Betts said the deputy "performed admirably while injured and under duress. This incident points to the dangers law enforcement officers face every day."

Some states have mask mandates making it illegal to be in public without face masks or face coverings.
