Between indoctrination of our nation's children into socialism and the deliberate, and many times, successful attempts to cause gender confusion into kids as young as Kindergarteners, along with the media celebrating kiddie drag queens and children transgenders, we note that COVID restrictions pushed by power-hungry politicians, have now been found cause significantly lower IQ's for the "children on the pandemic."
We see much justifiable concern over the lockdowns, the arbitrary mask mandates when experts still cannot agree on effectiveness, nor the long term mental issues associated with forcing children to continuously wear a mask.
We see concerns, just as justifiable in the government's attempt to force people to get vaccines, and the increasing amount of liberal states to require a vaccine passport to dine out, go the gym, or go to any indoor entertainment venue.
Those are incredibly important concerns as freedoms are being stripped from Americans and must be highlighted.
Free movement and the freedom to simply run a business is being hindered, sometimes by state leaders deeming some companies and jobs "non-essential," other times, like in NYC, by decreeing restrictions on businesses that will automatically cause a reduction in revenue generation, making it almost impossible for some to keep their doors open.
All that news is relevant and extremely important, but often overtake the reports about the mental health damage these same COVID lockdowns and restrictions are causing, not only in adults and teenagers, but in children three months to three years old.
Findings were posted in medrxiv ahead of peer review on Aug. 11, stemming from some 605 mostly white children, including 39 born in 2018 and 2019.
This may be due to the first 1,000 days of a child’s life being the most crucial to development.
Environmental factors, including maternal mental and physical health, nutrition, stimulation, and supportive caregiving can alter the child’s development.
The study of pre-pandemic babies shows that they had an IQ ranging from 98.5 to 107.3.
But, the IQs of babies born during the pandemic sharply fell 27 to 37 points.
The study attributed lockdown policies aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 such as economic shutdowns, mask-wearing, school disruptions, social distancing and stay-at-home orders.
27 to 37 points. That is a huge drop in IQ during a child's critical developmental stage, therefore mental and emotional development, with no way of knowing how much more damage is being done as those children age, with newly announced restrictions.
Remembering our own childhood, playing tackle football, basketball, wrestling, playing board games with less than a foot between players, parental or familial hugging, kissing, human touch, among other activities that are not only normal, but needed by human beings, especially children, in their formative years to be emotionally healthy.
Now, we see images from all across the world of children getting the complete opposite of what they need to grow into mentally healthy teens and adults.

Daycare limiting space
The images are countless and heartbreaking.
Children need touch, interaction, and connections.
So if children aged three months to three years old are suffering such a decrease in IQs, what about the children a little older, those that remember what it was like to simply play with friends, chatter during class with your closest classmate, go to a movie and share popcorn, play at a playground, and other activities that they can no longer contemplate because of arbitrary rules and restrictions.
Multiple lines of evidence indicate that the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has profound psychological and social effects. The psychological sequelae of the pandemic will probably persist for months and years to come. Studies indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with distress, anxiety, fear of contagion, depression and insomnia in the general population and among healthcare professionals. Social isolation, anxiety, fear of contagion, uncertainty, chronic stress and economic difficulties may lead to the development or exacerbation of depressive, anxiety, substance use and other psychiatric disorders in vulnerable populations including individuals with pre-existing psychiatric disorders and people who reside in high COVID-19 prevalence areas. Stress-related psychiatric conditions including mood and substance use disorders are associated with suicidal behavior. COVID-19 survivors may also be at elevated suicide risk. The COVID-19 crisis may increase suicide rates during and after the pandemic. Mental health consequences of the COVID-19 crisis including suicidal behavior are likely to be present for a long time and peak later than the actual pandemic.........
The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has emerged as a new global health threat. By increasing the risk of isolation, fear, stigma, abuse and economic fallout, COVID-19 has led to increase in risk of psychiatric disorders, chronic trauma and stress, which eventually increase suicidality and suicidal behavior. There is limited data on association of pandemics and suicides. Cases of suicides have been rising since COVID-19 first emerged in China. The association between suicides and pandemics can possibly be explained through various models like Durkheim's theory, Joiner's interpersonal theory, social stress theory, biological theories, etc. The frontline workers, elderly, migrants, homeless, socio-economically impoverished classes as well as those with pre-existing mental disorders, substance abuse and family history of suicides are at higher risk. Suicides are preventable and need early detection, awareness and socio-culturally tailored interventions. This narrative review draws global perspectives on the association of suicidality and pandemics, the theories and risk factors related to same based on the available evidence. It also hypothesizes neuroimmunity and immune based risk factors as possible links between the psychosocial vulnerabilities and suicide during outbreaks like COVID-19. Proposed strategies of suicide-prevention, as an integral part of public health response to the pandemic are subsequently discussed.
Widely reported studies modelling the effect of the covid-19 pandemic on suicide rates predicted increases ranging from 1% to 145%,6 largely reflecting variation in underlying assumptions. Particular emphasis has been given to the effect of the pandemic on children and young people. Numerous surveys have highlighted that their mental health has been disproportionately affected, relative to older adults, and some suggest an increase in suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
For a pandemic with a very low death rate, it appears the disproportionate mental health issues associated with the actions being taken by state leaders, and now the Biden regime, seems to be doing more damage than COVID itself.
Make no mistake, we are not downplaying the devastation of any deaths directly associated with COVID, but rather highlighting the needless deaths by suicide, drug overdose, and the emotional damage being done to babies, children, teens and adults, that will last far longer than the pandemic itself, all in the name of 'safety.'
It is bad enough that television shows, the media, commercials, schools more worried about "teaching" activism than education, and movies, are dumbing down America, but now, thanks to pandemic lockdowns, their associated restrictions, and overreaching power-hungry politicians, Americans are starting their childhood already dumbed down.
There is absolutely no way to know the long term effects these issues will have on Americans or the global population, but it is abundantly clear that people are less stable, mentally and emotionally, more suicidal, depressed, stressed, and the children are starting out their lives with lowered IQs.
