A few inconvenient facts about Biden’s vaccine mandate
September 11, 2021 (American Thinker) – Joe Biden took to his little lectern on Thursday, shaking with righteous anger. As you already know, he wasn’t angry at al-Qaeda/Taliban terrorists who slaughtered thirteen Americans last month. Nor was he angry about the sex trafficking flowing into America through our southern border and on planes loaded with unvetted Afghan “refugees.” Instead, his anger was reserved for those intransigent Americans who refuse to get vaccinated.
They must be punished, he said, whether by being forced out of their jobs or having weekly swaps stuck so high in their noses that they risk piercing their brains. Others have already commented on the constitutional problems with Biden’s remedy for the evil unvaxxed. I want to talk about a few more practical issues.
First, too few people are paying attention to the fact that this draconian, indeed, fascist dictate is for a virus that, for people under 70, has a mortality rate that is less than 1%. If a virus with a 10%, 20%, or higher mortality rate were sweeping through America, the panic factor might be different. But again, we’re talking about less than 1% for those under 70. (And for those older than 70, the issue tends to be co-morbidities, including obesity.) Just keep in mind that America fought a successful revolution even as smallpox, with its 30% mortality rate, was sweeping through the colonies.
Second, this is not a vaccine. If it were a vaccine, those who are vaccinated would be perfectly safe from those who are not vaccinated. For example, Howard Stern, who said “f— their freedom” because this 67-year-old multi-millionaire (worth over $200 million) wants to leave his gated enclave to eat at a restaurant, wouldn’t be going full fascist on the rest of us if the vaccine worked. Instead, he’d be toddling off to dine at some fancy club, sneering at the unvaccinated and their illness. Likewise, if this were a vaccine, those who were vaccinated would not need masks, because they would not be either virus givers or receivers.
Third, Biden has exempted the millions of illegal aliens pouring into the country from the mandate, as well as members of Congress and their staff. One can view this two ways: Biden hates all these people and wants them to die from COVID. Or, considering that <1% mortality rate, along with all the problems associated with the vaccine, Biden hates everyone else and wants all these latter people to risk death or other permanent health problems. Remember, please, that teenage boys’ risk of heart problems from the vaccine is six times greater than the risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID.
Fourth, as Anony Mee wrote me based on experience with the federal government, there are some practical problems with the mandate. Do any of you believe that there are enough swabs, testing sites, medical personnel, diagnostic reagents, and related people and materials to process as many as 80 million tests a week? Moreover, the PCR tests that are still common despite their accuracy issues can take as much as a week to deliver a result.
Fifth, Anony Mee had another practical point: “Don’t forget the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995.” It’s more than likely that both the Department of Labor and OSHA lack funding to cover enforcing these new mandates.
Sixth, there is the brain and skill drain, not just from the federal government’s civil service, but from the military as well. Anony Mee wrote about the civil service, but it’s easy to imagine that the military will be affected as well (although the Defense Department and Air Force deny a claim that highly skilled people are already submitting their resignations):
The US is the largest single employer of hard science PhDs in the country, and most probably the entire world. Of distinguishable groups, PhDs are the least vaccinated. Can the USG afford to lose them? DARPA? USDA which has the largest research institution, the Agricultural Research Service, in the world? Walter Reed researchers?
As a bonus, here’s Ron DeSantis ripping Biden a new one:
“Here he comes from Washington DC instituting an unprecedented mandate, even his own people acknowledged is unconstitutional. That’s not leadership. The problem I have with Joe Biden is-this guy doesn’t take responsibility for anything. He’s always trying to blame other people.” pic.twitter.com/ZAhN1mva6o— Christina Pushaw (@ChristinaPushaw) September 10, 2021
I believe that the vaccine mandate will get pushed back. Indeed, I’m inclined to agree with those who claim that Biden is doing it both to distract from Afghanistan and to ride the wave of the delta variant’s inevitable decline. (That is, as the delta variant inevitably lessens, Biden will claim the credit.) However, I also believe that America’s large corporations, all of which are run by college graduates who have been marinated in leftism, will take the mandate as a green light to impose vaccine requirements on their employees.
While I don’t see this ending well, there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. I spent some time last week with young tech workers and learned that very slowly, little by little, they’re starting to push back against the idea that the world must stop for a virus that has no effect on them.

Big chill for climate doom: Arctic Sea ice is expanding
In addition, the Arctic sea melt this summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea is well above average.
Fri Sep 10, 2021 (WND News Center) – Less than 10 years remain before the oft-claimed “tipping point” for the planet, but sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is the highest it’s been in nine years, increasing more than 30% from last year, while the Antarctic’s level is well above normal.
That’s according to the Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility’s High Latitude Processing Center, pointed out climate-change skeptic Tony Heller.
He noted the Arctic Ocean gained a record amount of sea ice during the first week of September.
“Most years the Arctic loses ice, but this year ice extent has increased” more than 77,000 square miles, he wrote on Twitter, adding the news likely would not be reported by CNN, BBC News or the New York Times.
Meanwhile, the sea melt this summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea is well above average.
In January 2019, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., drew attention to the claim of some climate-change activists that a U.N. climate report the previous year concluded the planet had only 12 years to address climate change.
Speaking at an annual MLK Now event in New York City, she defended the trillion-dollar price tag she proposes for addressing climate change through her “Green New Deal.”
“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us, are looking up, and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’”
Ocasio-Cortez’s claim of impending doom relies on the 2018 U.N. “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC,” which did not conclude the world would end in 12 years. The climate scientists who produced the report warned that any rise in global warming of more than 1.5 degrees celsius by 2030 would result in drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
“Millennials, and Gen z, and all these folks that come after us, are looking up and we’re like ‘the world will end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’”
However, 2018 marked 30 years of failed climate-alarm predictions, with many forecasts of a “point of no return” and a “critical tipping point” having long passed.
In July 2019, as WND reported, the left-wing thought leader Think Progress warned that the deadline was actually only a little more than a year, because the planet would be doomed if President Trump were re-elected in November 2020.
‘Greatest threat to global public health’?
This week, the New York Times reported a number of leading health and medical journals declared climate change “the greatest threat to global public health” and called on governments to respond with the urgency with which they confronted the coronavirus pandemic.
The declarations followed the announcement that the Biden Health and Human Services Department will treat climate change as a public health issue.
The Daily Caller pointed out that governments and public health bodies could invoke emergency authority as they have in response to COVID-19 and enforce drastic measures such as curbing private-vehicle use, consumption of animal products and fossil fuel drilling.
A study published in Nature Climate Change in March found that during the 2020 lockdowns, carbon emissions fell by about 2.6 billion metric tons in 2020. A pandemic-scale lockdown once every two years would produce an equivalent decline in emissions over the long-term, the researchers concluded.
“If climate activists were allowed, they would take us from COVID lockdowns straight into climate lockdowns,” JunkScience.com founder Steve Milloy told the Daily Caller. “Now that they’ve seen arbitrary lockdowns successfully imposed under the guise of a ‘public health emergency,’ they can’t wait for federal, state and local declarations of a climate emergency to achieve the same sort of dominance over us.”
Hundreds of L.A. cops and firefighters join forces to fight city’s vaccine mandate
‘We can either be known as the ones who helped lead the charge to freedom, or we can set the vaccine mandate precedent for other agencies and watch our freedoms end,’’ stated Roll Call 4 Freedom, an organization comprising hundreds of police officers and civilian employees.
LOS ANGELES (LifeSiteNews) — Firefighters and police officers in Los Angeles have positioned themselves on the front lines in the battle against coercive COVID-19 vaccine mandates, joining together to demand freedom from forced inoculation in a “monumental fight to preserve our Liberties.”
Founded by stakeholders with the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), “Firefighters for Freedom” has partnered with “Roll Call 4 Freedom,” an organization made up of Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) members, to combat forced COVID-19 jabs for city employees.
Comprising at least 350 firefighters with the LAFD and hundreds of sworn officers and civilian members of the LAPD, the groups are planning legal action against the City of Los Angeles, represented by California attorney Kevin McBride.
The pushback is in response to a COVID-19 injection mandate for all city employees that was put forward by the L.A. City Council, passed unanimously, and signed by Mayor Eric Garcetti last month.
The mandate requires all city employees who have not gotten a medical or religious exemption to be “fully vaccinated” by October 5, affecting some 60,000 police officers, firefighters, and others.
“Our goal is to stop the mandated vaccinations for all City employees as well as the citizens of this great country,” Firefighters for Freedom said on its website.
The group asked supporters to “[p]lease stand with us in this monumental fight to preserve our Liberties.”
As reported by the Daily Wire, LAFD employs approximately 3,350 firefighters, of whom only about half have elected to take the shot.
Announcing September 2 that it was “joining LAFD’s lawsuit as a subgroup,” Roll Call 4 Freedom said the issue is larger than just one department or one city.
“Our nation, city and department are in an unprecedented time, and OUR actions will define our future as Americans, because this is a FREEDOM issue,” Roll Call said.
“It is much larger than a police issue, a department policy issue, or a city mandate.”
LAPD Sgt. Veronica Saucedo told the Los Angeles Times that Roll Call 4 Freedom has hundreds of members, and that the group is focused on “individual rights, personal choice and … managing our own health.”
Encouraging members “not to submit anything, including a religious exemption,” Roll Call 4 Freedom said “filing for an exemption is a form of self-reporting.”
The group said it is pushing for a removal of the mandate entirely, without the need to request an exemption.
The law enforcement group encouraged more people to join the fight, including those who have already taken the injection, saying “we need to rally with each other, as brothers and sisters to stand against [forced vaccination.]”
“The more support we have from the rank and file and the larger our group grows, the better our chances are of success in litigation,” Roll Call said.
Noting that the LAPD is “one of the largest police departments in the nation,” the police group suggested that the efforts of LAPD employees to oppose forced vaccination “will affect law enforcement agencies across the nation.”
With about 9,000 sworn officers and 3,000 civilian employees, the Los Angeles Police Department is the third largest police agency in the United States, behind the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and the Chicago Police Department (CPD).
News of the combined efforts of LAFD and LAPD personnel comes after an L.A. fire captain’s passionate video denouncing vaccine mandates as “tyranny” went viral last month, triggering an “investigation” into the captain for his controversial statements made while in uniform.
If YouTube decides to play the part of a sadistic, tyrannical god and removes the video, it can be viewed on Brighteon (one of several new truly “free speech encouraged” social media sites) at the link below:
As previously reported by LifeSite, Captain Christian Granucci, a 31-year veteran of the LAFD, called Los Angeles’ impending COVID-19 vaccine mandate “tyranny” and said he was “done being silent.”
Granucci also hinted that he had joined with hundreds of like-minded city employees who were ready and willing to take legal action to protect their freedom to refuse the jab.
“There is a large group of us, in the hundreds, and we have an attorney on retainer,” he said.
McBride, who has encouraged analysis of VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) data to ascertain the true risk of COVID-19 shots, was chosen by Firefighters for Freedom to represent their members in their battle against the mandated jabs.
Since Roll Call 4 Freedom joined on, McBride will also represent LAPD’s sworn officers, civilian personnel, and family members of LAPD employees.
In an open letter addressed to LAPD officers, McBride said the goals of the legal action are: “first, to stop the COVID vaccination mandate through litigation proceedings and second, to help hold your union accountable to the membership to collectively bargain to stop the vaccination mandate.”
McBride, who has successfully represented employees of global pharmaceutical company Incyte Corporation in their fight against jab mandates, and has “represented small entities and employee groups against very large companies” throughout his career, added that “it’s time to take the fight to the City and County, and to protect your rights as police officers.”
“We can either be known as the ones who helped lead the charge to freedom, or we can set the vaccine mandate precedent for other agencies and watch our freedoms end — not just in our jobs, but in everyday life,” wrote Roll Call 4 Freedom on its website.
“If we give in to this mandate, think about what will be asked of us tomorrow. What else will you give up? Your children will be next. Your promotions, upgrades, transfers, and futures are at stake,” the group warned.
“This may cost our jobs and our family’s financial security,” Roll Call’s statement concluded. “It will be stressful, mentally and emotionally, on all of us and our families. But, we must be willing to die on this hill, otherwise there won’t be another to fight on!”
Firefighters for Freedom stated on its site that its members “believe in the right to work, freewill [sic], personal choice, medical freedoms, and consent without coercion, retaliation, threats, disciplinary action, or termination.”
“This is a human rights issue,” the firefighters’ group said. “We hope you stand with us, for we believe all members and citizens have the freedom of choice and natural rights.”
News of the L.A. first responders’ efforts to resist the city’s vaccine mandate comes just ahead of a much-discussed recall election in the state, with Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom fighting to remain in office against popular conservative talk show host, author, and attorney Larry Elder.
Newsom has been responsible for some of the harshest and most restrictive COVID-19 measures in the United States since March 2020. Elder has said that if he takes office, he will remove mask and vaccine mandates in the Golden State before his “first cup of tea.”
Children’s risk of death from COVID-19 is so extremely low that it is insignificant. It is dwarfed by the risk of death from the flu and accidental injuries. That is the case even without mandates, mask wearing, distancing, or lockdowns
Children are not susceptible to COVID-19 in the same way as adults, in part, because they have significantly lower numbers of ACE-2 receptors in their nasal passages. These receptors are used by the virus to initiate an infection
It is not possible to devise an effective vaccine for the the virus that causes COVID-19. Coronaviruses mutate widely so, because of that, it is impossible to come up with a vaccination protocol that would stop its spread. Every bona fide virologist knows this, but the average person remains ignorant because the information is actively suppressed
The potential harm from the COVID-19 jabto children, and adults under 70 years old, who are healthy, do not have any serious disease and are not obese far outweighs any benefit
The shots violate all 10 tenets of the Nuremberg Code, so doctors pushing the jab could be prosecuted one day for adverse effects
There is a lack of understanding about how the shot works, such as which cells, precisely, are being transfected with genetic information, how much protein is made, where that protein goes and how long it lasts because it has only been about a year since the creation of these mRNA jabs. Most vaccines average 10 years from the beginning of research and testing to when they receive FDA approval. The “Small Pox” vaccine took 30 years
The lipid nanoparticles that surround the mRNA technology in the shots have been known to cause inflammatory damage to ovaries and testes since at least 2012. Because hormones affect every single organ and bodily system, the damage not only harms fertility, but affects all aspects of your health. Why risk your and your children’s fertility?
Lipids do cross into the placenta. It is not known how a fetus will deal with spike proteins once the lipid-coated mRNA reaches` him or her.
A massive IQ dropin children born after January 2020 — from an average IQ of 100, to one of 78 — is linked to a lack of stimulus, a drop in social interactions, the inability to play and the inability to go outside. Also, not seeing full faces (because of masks) hinders the healthy development of the minds of babies’ and children
The purpose of these mandates is to train children, through forced compliance, to obey irrational demands from “The State” without question. Children have grown so used to and so comfortable with following rules and dictates such as hiding their faces and staying socially distant that, psychologically, they do not interact or communicate with each other, anymore. They are like trained dogs, at this point. This is how totalitarian, communist leaders indoctrinate and control “The Masses”
Vaccine and mask mandates are, in part, an attempt to keep you distracted so that you do not discover that there are effective, safe, and available outpatient treatments for all variants of the Wuhan virus. If the FDA acknowledged that treatments such as Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, or N-Acetyl Cysteine do work, that would shoot down the validity of giving the “vaccine” emergency use authorization (EUA)
You will not win the anti-mandates battle by simply disseminating information because you are not fighting an informational enemy. You need to fight it with force through actions. You need to gather together other parents and make your voices heard in a powerful way at your local schools/school board meetings. You need to demand, but not argue, that the mask and vaccine mandates stop, now. If you are not successful, you need to pull your children out of school, immediately. Arrange with other parents to pull your kids out at the same time. There is power and strength in numbers. Then, get together as a group with a legal expert and draft a document wherein you ask the school to accept liability for any harm that the COVID-19 shot might inflict on your child. In previous cases, schools have backed off after being confronted this way. Ideally, all Americans should yank their kids from these tyrannical schools, right now, because that would bring the COVID madness to an abrupt end since the amount of Federal dollars a school receives is based on attendance. Do not just seek medical or religious exemptions because they usually provide a reprieve of only a few weeks – eventually, they are going to come for your children. Oppose the tyranny of mask, vaccine, and other unscientific mandates, now.
It is not about saving lives. They really don’t care whether you live or die. It is all about achieving their agenda regardless of the cost to you.
The FDA did NOT grant full approval to the Pfizer shots
August 26, 2021 (American Thinker) – You may have heard that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 shot received FDA approval this past Monday. Politicians, national health officials, and journalists are breathless with excitement about how this approval will finally induce the remaining “vaccine-hesitant” into stepping forward to receive their jab. The FDA even has a press release on its website about it.
There’s just one problem.
If you read the actual letters that the FDA sent to Pfizer on August 23, 2021, you’ll see that the FDA did no such thing. In the sense that the term “FDA approval” is generally understood, this drug is not approved by the FDA. It is still under EUA (Emergency Use Authorization). It is still an experimental drug.
The FDA sent two letters. The first one was a letter of BLA (Biologics License Application) approval, and the second was a letter of EUA extension to COMIRNATY.
The BLA approval letter approves Pfizer’s application for a license to label its COVID-19 drug with the brand name COMIRNATY. This letter also spells out the terms and requirements for nine additional clinical trials over five years, and yearly status reports, to study the acknowledged occurrences of myocarditis and pericarditis that have followed the administering of the Pfizer shots. This license to label and manufacture is not a full approval of the drug, which clearly is still subject to many years of clinical trials.
The EUA extension letter extends the term of the EUA for the current drug and authorizes (licenses) the experimental use of the brand-name drug COMIRNATY. In the first paragraph on page 2, this letter references the license approval letter. In the second paragraph on page 2, the August 12 EUA is re-issued to include the name-branded drug in the emergency use authorization, and to add “language regarding warnings and precautions related to myocarditis and pericarditis.” In the last paragraph on page 4, the EUA nature of the drugs is re-iterated, and COMIRNATY is additionally authorized for use for individuals aged 12 through 15 years.
The mRNA gene therapy shots are still experimental. Mandating them is still wrong — by a wide variety of ethical standards.
Dr. Meryl Nass, M.D. found the truths that the FDA buried in the blather of these letters and offers a theory about why it was done this way. The drug-manufacturers were granted immunity from liability for the drugs produced under the EUAs. The granting of the license re-applies the customary liability for injury and death caused by the product. Pfizer, the health officials, and the politicians get to take a fictitious victory lap for the “approval,” while Pfizer-BioNTech continues to stealthily enjoy immunity from product liability because there are many millions of the unlicensed doses on the shelves and in the manufacturing pipeline that will be administered first. The licensed version will not arrive on shelves or be jabbed into arms for many months to come.
Of great concern, considering the factual content of the FDA EUA letters to Pfizer, is the breezy way the press release on the FDA website repeatedly uses the words “approve” and “approval” in reference to the Pfizer drug. If only there were a word for intentionally saying things to the public that do not match reality…
COMIRNATY seems like an unusual name for anything, much less a cutting-edge-technology gene therapy. Out of idle curiosity, I ran the name through an anagram solver. For a result, it gave TIROMANCY, which is divination or prophecy by examining how curds form during the coagulation of cheese. How apropos. That’s something I’m willing to try for forecasting the results of the next election!
Twenty-five minutes to infamy
August 28, 2021 (American Thinker) – On what was arguably the worst day of Joe Biden’s presidency, he was scheduled to address America and the world at 5 P.M. on August 26, 2021. We’d been told earlier that day that the president and commander-in-chief was going to address the bomb that killed Marines and a Navy corpsman in Kabul. Biden was 25 minutes late.
That delay is not trivial. It has direct consequences on an ever-present 24/7 strategic threat that Russia, China, and North Korea pose to America. All three have “ready now” ICBMs with multiple warheads aimed at targets in the continental United States.
I know this because I was President Reagan’s principal director of mobilization planning and requirements in the Pentagon at the height of the Cold War. In those days, as is true today, we focused on building a survivable American nuclear force, land-based ICBM silos, USN Boomers, and USAF strategic bombers. Recently, as I pointed out in an earlier American Thinker post, the threat level has been increasing, especially directly from President Putin:
Is President Putin diabolically smart or simply a psychopath? Perhaps he is both, because by his direct action, the world is now a much more dangerous place as the former KGB officer creates a nuclear doomsday scenario backed by real Russian naval capabilities:
Russia is said to have built a new 100-megaton underwater nuclear doomsday device, and it has threatened the US with it.
The device goes beyond traditional ideas of nuclear war fighting and poses a direct threat to the future of humanity or life on Earth.
Nobody has ever built a weapon like this before, because there’s almost no military utility in so badly destroying the world.
With that threat, it’s fair to ask why Joe Biden delayed his address for 25 minutes. The delay could have been excused if the White House national security staff and leaders had high-level actionable information that justified a delay in ensuring that the information presented was accurate and fact-based. But that was proven not to be the case because of Biden’s colossal and historic communication goof:
Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here. The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O’Donnell of NBC.
Q Mr. President, you have said leaving Afghanistan is in the national interest of the United States. After today’s attack, do you believe you will authorize additional forces to respond to that attack inside Afghanistan? And are you — are you prepared to add additional forces to protect those Americans who remain on the ground carrying out the evacuation operation?
His answer was priceless; blame the military:
[T]he military — from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the Joint Chiefs, the commanders in the field — have all contacted me one way or another, usually by letter, saying they subscribe to the mission as designed to get as many people out as we can within the timeframe that is allotted. That is the best way, they believe, to get as many Americans out as possible, and others.
As an aside “by letter”? Heck! Why doesn’t he channel President Lincoln and at least use the telegraph for faster electric combat coms, huh?
To be fair, O’Donnell did not ask an unreasonable military policy question — but that doesn’t justify a delay to gather additional information. Or at least one hopes so, or it is even worse, because the Biden national security team would be seen as truly making it up as they go.
Those Americans who watched and, more importantly, our world leader friends and enemies just saw a president needing an additional twenty-five minutes to get prepared after having earlier announced a hard deadline time.
It may appear to be just a typical Biden trivial time-delay moment. However, the entire American strategic deterrence posture, especially during the Cold War, was measured in thirty minutes. That was the time of flight for incoming missiles to destroy us. Today, I suspect the time is even shorter. Regardless, the fundamental building block to make sure we would never be attacked was competent, determined presidential leadership with the “football” launch codes to unleash hell on our enemies.
If anything leads Russia, China, or North Korea to believe strongly that President Biden is not mentally together — and his 25-minute delay may have proven that — America is in even greater danger than we thought. The global consequences of terrorism with Afghanistan’s fall to committed fanatical killers are yet to be seen.
But the damage to our strategic response time and Presidential Biden’s capability and intellectual will to launch a retaliatory strike if threatened with nuclear war has also come into question. That issue cannot be solved by unelected enablers such as Dr. Jill or whoever “instructed” him to call on Kelly O’Donnell.
Make no mistake: the world is watching one of the most inept presidential performances in either war or peace in American history, and it is just beginning, not ending.
Destroy the cache of 83B in U.S. military equipment: auto guns, helicopters, planes, jeeps, buildings, computers, etc.)
Order military soldiers, etc. to leave.
Allow Taliban to take over the country after all U.S. interests have been removed/destroyed
Biden’s strategy for leaving Afghanistan
Allow SOME military personnel and soldiers, etc. to leave
Allow Taliban to confiscate the cache of 83B in U.S. military equipment: auto guns, helicopters, planes, jeeps, buildings, computers, etc.)
Allow Taliban to laugh at the weakness of Biden, the entire Dem administration, and America, in general
Force Americans to endure humiliation as the Taliban rejoice that ALLAH has given them these “gifts” to use against their enemies, i.e. U.S.A.
Allow the Taliban to kill 13 U.S. soldiers and other Americans, and kidnap, enslave and/or rape American girls and women
Demand that the pleas from abandoned Americans be ignored
And to think, their elitist arrogance and pathological hatred of Trump caused them to scorn and reject his plan simply because it was his…..all to the detriment of the U.S. and her citizens. Damn him and his cohorts.
If the current administration, mainstream media or liberal social media spokespersons are talking then they are lying. They know that if you tell a lie big enough and long enough, the average useless idiot (99% of humanity) will believe it, follow it, defend it and pass it on. Due diligence be damned!
The left wants a ‘permanent pandemic’ to ‘control you’
Are YOUR actions supporting their desire? Seriously, do you REALLY think that if you are obedient enough, compliant enough, accepting enough, stupid enough, blind enough & silent enough that your previous rights will be restored? If so, count yourself as one of the “useless idiots“
Australia starts building 1,000-bed concentration camp for COVID ‘regional quarantine facility’
August 26, 2021 (American Thinker) – Australia is planning ahead for mass detentions of people in the name of suppressing COVID. A thousand-bed facility that won’t be ready until the end of the year is being constructed about a hundred miles inland from Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia. The left-wing Labor Party premier of Queensland celebrates the news:
BREAKING: A dedicated regional quarantine facility will be built at Wellcamp Airport near Toowoomba. As we contend with the dangerous Delta variant, we need fit-for-purpose quarantine facilities. #covid19pic.twitter.com/sv1qEHUL1Z— Annastacia Palaszczuk (@AnnastaciaMP) August 26, 2021
That’s why we’ve taken decisive action to build this new 1000-bed, dedicated facility under a joint agreement between the Palaszczuk Government and the landowner @Wagner_Corp. Wagner Corporation expects the first stage of the facility to be delivered for use by the end of 2021.— Annastacia Palaszczuk (@AnnastaciaMP) August 26, 2021
We are up against the highly infectious Delta variant that is sweeping the world.
Australia has already turned its military against its own citizens to hunt down protesters, and even a man who is COVID-positive and left his home. The loss of basic freedoms is being protested, but not by overwhelming numbers sufficient to dissuade the power-hungry politicians. The public, in fact, is being told by media to be grateful when a few liberties are conditionally restored:

mRNA inventor slams US regulator’s ‘little trick,’ mainstream media ‘lies’
August 26, 2021 (ChurchMilitant.com) – Contrary to claims in the mainstream media, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not granted full approval to Pfizer’s current COVID-19 vaccine but only extended its existing Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
On Monday, the FDA wrote to Pfizer stating it is “reissuing the August 12, 2021, letter of authorization in its entirety with revisions incorporated to clarify that the EUA will remain in place for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.”
However, in a second letter to BioNTech (a German pharmaceutical partnering with Pfizer), the FDA said it is granting a Biologics License Application (BLA) approval for its mRNA COVID-19 vaccine to be marketed under the proprietary name Comirnaty.
The FDA also did not approve any COVID-19 vaccines for the 12- to 15-year age group, booster doses for any age group, or the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine currently administered under EUA in the United States.
mRNA Inventor Explains Sleight of Hand
Inventor of the mRNA vaccine Dr. Robert Malone blasted the obfuscation as “the little trick” played by the FDA by issuing “two separate letters for two separate vaccines.”
“The press has actually not done their work and figured out what’s actually going on here,” Malone said. “Once again the mainstream media has lied to you.” The FDA views its primary mission as approving as many drugs it can, regardless of whether the drugs are safe or needed.
“The product which has been licensed is the BioNTech product, which is substantially similar but not necessarily identical.” But Comirnaty is “not yet available” in the United States and “they haven’t yet started manufacturing it or labeling it,” Malone explained.
The FDA acknowledges “a significant amount” of the Pfizer vaccine remains available under EUA, while there are “insufficient stocks” of BioNTech’s fully approved Comirnaty. Those interested in getting the fully FDA-approved version should ask to see “Comirnaty” on the label.
Transparency Advocates Sound Off
Earlier, transparency advocates criticized the FDA decision “not to hold a formal advisory committee meeting to discuss Pfizer’s application for full approval of its COVID-19 vaccine.”
“The public deserves a transparent process, especially as the call for boosters and mandates are rapidly increasing,” asserted Kim Witczak, a drug safety advocate who serves as a consumer representative on the FDA’s Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee.
Witczak is one of 30 signatories who petitioned the U.S. drug regulator in June to “delay any consideration of a ‘full approval’ of a COVID-19 vaccine.” The scientists asked the FDA to “slow down and get the science right” as “there is no legitimate reason to hurry.”

The petition also asked for “data demonstrating a thorough investigation of all serious adverse events reported to pharmacovigilance systems, carried out by independent, impartial individuals.”
Unlike the way in which clinical trials study drugs using a limited number of patients with a limited scope of health, geographic and other influences affecting safety analysis, pharmacovigilance involves reviewing adverse drug reactions over time and across a wider patient population to get a clearer understanding of possible adverse reactions. Safety isn’t on the radar screen regardless of what FDA officials would have you believe.
Diana Zuckerman, president of the National Center for Health Research, told the prestigious British Medical Journal (BMJ): “It’s obvious that the FDA has no intention of hearing anyone else’s opinion. But if you make decisions behind closed doors it can feed into hesitancy.”
BMJ’s associate editor Dr. Peter Doshi warned the FDA it was in danger of granting “a marketing license 13 months into the still ongoing, two-year pivotal trial, with no reported data past 13 March 2021, unclear efficacy after six months due to unblinding, evidence of waning protection irrespective of the Delta variant, and limited reporting of safety data.”
The document Pfizer sent to the FDA for its Emergency Use Authorization contained no data to suggest safety or efficacy regarding anyone younger than 18 or older than age 55, pregnant or lactating mothers, autoimmune conditions or immunocompromised individuals. It also lacked data on its efficacy for transmission of COVID, duration of protection from COVID or preventing death from COVID.
Warning to the Public
Internist Dr. Meryl Nass and legal expert Robert F. Kennedy Jr. excoriated the FDA for “playing bait and switch with the American public” and urged individuals not to “play along.”
“The FDA’s acknowledgment in its approval letter that there are insufficient stocks of the licensed Comirnaty but an abundant supply of the EUA Pfizer BioNTech jab exposes the ‘approval’ as a cynical scheme to encourage businesses and schools to impose illegal jab mandates,” Nass and Kennedy explained.
“If it doesn’t say ‘Comirnaty’ [on the label], you have not been offered an approved vaccine,” they wrote. “The FDA appears to be purposefully tricking American citizens into giving up their right to refuse an experimental product. “With the U.S. awash in news about rising cases of the Delta variant, including among the ‘fully vaccinated,’ the vaccine’s efficacy profile is in question.
Under the new arrangement, Comirnaty has no liability shield and victims of the Comirnaty jab could potentially sue for damages. “Pfizer is therefore unlikely to allow any American to take a Comirnaty vaccine until it can somehow arrange immunity for this product,” they added.
In 2009, Pfizer was fined a record $2.3 billion — the largest pharma settlement to date — after being deemed a repeat offender in marketing 13 drugs to patients and doctors for unapproved uses.
FDA: Safety or Sales?
Kennedy and Nass stressed that the “FDA’s clear motivation is to enable Pfizer to quickly unload inventories of a vaccine that science and the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System have exposed as unreasonably dangerous and that the Delta variant has rendered obsolete.”
The FDA has a history of approving unsafe drugs. In 2005, whistleblower Dr. David J. Graham, associate director of the FDA’s Office of Drug Safety, revealed the “FDA is inherently biased in favor of the pharmaceutical industry” and views Big Pharma as “its client, whose interests it must represent and advance.”
“It views its primary mission as approving as many drugs it can, regardless of whether the drugs are safe or needed,” the scientist observed, testifying to how the FDA-approved drug Vioxx killed 60,000 patients out of 140,000 who suffered heart attacks as a result of the drug.
“Safety isn’t on the radar screen regardless of what FDA officials would have you believe,” Dr. Graham lamented, because “when the FDA reviews a new drug, it assumes the drug is safe, and it facetiously asks the company to prove it’s not safe.”
“The FDA calls itself the world’s leading consumer protection agency. If the public only knew the truth, they’d demand that Congress fix the problem,” Graham noted.
Graham concluded Congress has no intention of upsetting the pharmaceutical industry because the FDA, Congress and Big Pharma work as a “lethal triangle” funded by the pharmaceutical giants.
Imagine being in control of your child’s education and not having to answer to teachers who have their own biases and agendas.
Lose the Fear: Take Control
This fall, I challenge you to live a school year that’s beautiful. I challenge you to take these wonderful little people into your arms and read to them, play with them and teach them. Allow your home to be more than the place that you come back to after a long day away and sleep. Turn your kitchen table into a craft zone, a science lab, a place where you gather and enjoy each other’s company. Make your home the domestic school that it’s supposed to be.
Talk to your children. Learn from them. What are they interested in? What is something you learned that you thought was amazing and would love to teach them? There is no limitation to their imaginations, and if you take the time to be present, you’ll be able to share in their discovery.
Many parents love to use the line, “Well, my school system is different.” The truth is most parents wouldn’t send their children off to these indoctrination stations if they truly didn’t believe that theirs was the diamond in the rough. But is it? Really?
Times have been a-changin’, and the changes aren’t for the good. We’ve seen what public school produces, and many of us want a refund. It doesn’t take much for us to see the seeds we’ve sown. Unless we take our mission seriously, our world will only fall further. Sadly, it’s our children who will be the ones left to pay the price of our indecision and/or failure to act.
Consider the alternative though. Imagine a fall where your children continue enjoying life, as they do in the summer. Imagine being in control of your child’s education and not having to answer to teachers who have their own biases and agendas: No Zoom meetings unless you want them, no fear of mask mandates, no worry of what your children are actually being taught.
There are so many resources out there for new homeschooling parents and so many different options for different teaching styles. One of the greatest features about being in charge of your child’s education is that you can explore so many different ways to teach. You aren’t held by the government’s standard one-size-fits-all law. Your child, being taught at home, has the freedom to learn and explore at his own pace, with no threat of “falling behind” or having to stay in a class that bores him because he’s learned all that could be taught.
I pray this new season will be a fantastic one for you and yours. I pray we will all live lives of great courage and never miss an opportunity to take back what belongs to us: our freedoms, our parental rights, our children.

Masks are child abuse for the simple reason that children have a statistically 0% chance of dying from the Sars-COV-2 virus and asymptomatic persons, in general, do NOT pass on the virus. Anything else you’ve heard is a myth. Those most at risk of COVID-19 complications are the elderly over 70 years old, those with serious co-morbidities like COPD or diabetes, and the very obese…period
This virus needs only the same precautions as other viruses like the annual flu: wash your hands, don’t touch your face, sneeze or cough into a tissue or your elbow, and stay home upon becoming symptomatic.
That’s all !!!
I, personally, use zinc lozenges at the first sign that I may possibly be getting sick and take a Vitamin D3 supplement every day. Also, look into having Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine on hand. Click below to discover HOW & WHY:
MASKS REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF OXYGEN AND INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF CARBON DIOXIDE PER INHALED BREATH, WHICH IS ESPECIALLY DETRIMENTAL TO THE DEVELOPING BRAINS OF CHILDREN
CHILDREN HAVE A STATISTICALLY 0% CHANCE OF SPREADING THE VIRUS BECAUSE, OVERWHELMINGLY, THEY PRESENT WITHOUT, OR WITH VERY MILD, SYMPTOMS, AND ALSO HAVE A STATISTICALLY 0% CHANCE OF DYING FROM THE VIRUS IF THEY ARE OF NORMAL WEIGHT AND ARE HEALTHY – OBESITY IS THE NUMBER 1 RISK FACTOR WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING VERY ILL, OR DYING FROM, THE VIRUS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
STUDIES SHOW THAT THERE HAVE BEEN 0 INSTANCES OF CHILDREN PASSING THE VIRUS ON TO THEIR TEACHERS
PANDEMIC? OR FEAR-DEMIC?
IF YOU ARE HEALTHY, NOT OBESE AND UNDER 70 YEARS OLD, YOU HAVE MORE THAN A 99.9% CHANCE OF SURVIVING THE VIRUS EVEN WITHOUT MEDICAL INTERVENTION
NEVER BEFORE HAS THE FDA APPROVED AN mRNA VACCINE EVEN THOUGH SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN WORKING ON VARIOUS ONES FOR DECADES – IN PREVIOUS STUDIES, ALL OF THE ANIMALS DIED OR WERE MAIMED
THE SMALL POX VACCINE TOOK 30 YEARS TO BE APPROVED AND IT HAS EXCEEDINGLY FEWER RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH IT THAN ANY OF THE COVID INJECTIONS – THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF TIME FROM INITIAL STUDIES TO APPROVAL FOR VACCINES IS NORMALLY 10 YEARS
THE SWINE FLU VACCINE WAS PULLED AFTER 50 PERSONS DIED SHORTLY AFTER TAKING IT; BUT, THE COVID INJECTION IS BEING TOUTED AS “SAFE” EVEN THOUGH 10’S OF THOUSANDS HAVE DIED, AND 100’S OF THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN INJURED, BECAUSE OF IT
Stand-by for the Real Insurrection… by the Democrats
August 23, 2021 (American Thinker) – People will put up with a little absentmindedness or occasional faux pas. But when creeping senility puts lives at risk and national interests in jeopardy, that’s entirely different.
When it was clear Joe Biden’s victory would stand up, it was obvious to me that Biden’s mental troubles, to frame it gently, would result in him being out of office one way or another within six months of his swearing-in. By then, the Trojan Horse would have served his purpose. Democrats would control all three branches of government and have pushed through many fundamental changes.
Biden did his share. He signed a record number of executive orders, many of questionable constitutionality. But now, as has been so painfully and obviously illuminated by the Afghanistan debacle, the president’s competence and reliability are dramatically compromised by clearly advancing symptoms of old age.
Consequently, we are about to witness a genuine insurrection that will put Jan. 6, 2021, into proper perspective. The unruly mob that stormed the Capitol was weak tea. Even its most militant participants never intended to overthrow the government. Their purpose was simply to have votes recounted and verified, which still hasn’t been done.
What looms today is far more serious, infinitely more calculated, and definitely more likely to achieve its goal: to replace a sitting president in mid-term, probably against his will. It ain’t gonna be pretty. It has the real possibility of resembling a banana republic coup d’état.
Many people note that the 25th Amendment to the Constitution permits the yanking of a president out of the Oval Office against his will, but consider the obstacles for replacing the vice president to ensure a Senate tie-breaking vote for Democrats. Recall how little the Constitution and laws have meant in recent years with the 2020 election improprieties, the politicizing and weaponizing of the FBI and Justice Department, nationwide illegal lockdowns and mandates, the wide-open southern border and, of course, the blind eyes turned to the Clinton attempts to frame Donald Trump. And consider this: Democrats really have no other option that works for them.
The motivation for a such drastic move is that the situation already is urgent and grows more dire by the day. No longer can Democrats trust Biden to stick to talking points rehearsed beforehand, or even to read from teleprompters or cheat sheets he carries to the podium. And when he goes off-script, Biden is at best unpredictable, often contradicting his own administration and frequently spewing outright lies that have even CNN blanching. At any moment, the president is liable to veer into forbidden territory with a devastating flourish.
As fascinating as it may be to consider, playing hide the pea with the president of the United States is unrealistic. Mrs. Edith Wilson fooled the world, while her president husband, Woodrow, finished his term disabled by a stroke hidden from the public. That won’t happen today. Not in this 24/7 intense news cycle world. Not in the age of the nuclear briefcase.
Biden has finished his seventh month. But he’s on borrowed time. Everyone knows it.
As any observer can verify by watching and listening, Joe Biden has ceased to be the president of the United States. Someone is pulling his strings and has been for quite some time. That is clear to everyone. What is unclear to nearly everyone is, who exactly is in charge.
We may be about to find out because whoever it is will be confronted by any number of challengers seeking to gain control over the next puppet-in-chief, Kamala Harris.
There’s not much use speculating about how Democrats will jettison Biden. It will be done in plain view. The real game will be how the media and the varied factions with interest in the office of the presidency publicly deal with the ouster and replacement.
For any student of government and any subscriber to the theory of the Deep State, this stuff is not new. Rule #1: whoever wins serves at the pleasure of others. And we’re not talking about the voters’ pleasure.
So, America, prepare for all the unpleasantries from House of Cards and Advise and Consent to play out in real-time, prime time even. Political jockeying for the inside track always is cutthroat but normally out of view. It will be nearly impossible to keep the jostling sub-rosa once the media and political antagonists smell Biden’s blood in the water. The shark frenzy looms. Slow shark dies.
When it becomes clear that Biden is on his way out, none of those interested in controlling the new titular figurehead will be reserved when making their move. Unlike normal times, such as the assassination of JFK and the forced resignation of Richard Nixon, there won’t be time for politics as usual. Behind-the-scenes subtleties will give way to high-profile public power plays. The players know they need to win the public to their cause and time is short.
Ousting an unstable president unlikely to go quietly is fraught with landmines. Imagine a public setting in which the magnitude of what his own party is doing to him pushes Biden beyond the limits of his self-control. That’s not hard to imagine, is it?
There’s a reason Biden is ushered away from the podium and news cameras. Prolonged exposure risks embarrassment. And worse.
We’ve already seen him lose control with the media, who Biden barks at sarcastically, and even with voters, who he insults to their face (“You lyin’ dog-faced pony soldier!”).
But what happens when the President of the United States insists on going out for an ice cream cone, then unexpectedly is triggered and launches a public rant captured by news and cellphone cameras? What happens when Secret Service agents are unpersuasive and Biden shrugs off their grasp and continues his rant?
How many such outbursts will the public tolerate before realizing such instability threatens national security. Afghanistan withdrawal already has severely reduced the public’s faith in Biden’s competence. The normally fawning press already complains that he doesn’t make himself available or answer their questions. Even pre-screened reporters with pre-approved questions are beginning to rebel. They want the truth, not Joe’s scripted lies.
Professional incompetence and a series of public rants signaling mental instability. What could be more worrisome in a leader?
Anyone who ever has dealt with a loved one suffering from senility or Alzheimer’s knows the routine. When angry, they cannot be reasoned with. They become more adamant, not more reasonable. And louder. And less and less concerned that they may be creating a scene. Indeed, making a loud, disruptive scene may be intentional. It’s a sign of emotion trumping reason. Another undesirable trait for a leader.
Now imagine such a person is the most powerful man on the planet, the Commander in Chief, the man to whom every federal agency answers. Restraining that person becomes exponentially more difficult. When the president says, “Don’t do that!” do press aides persist? Do Secret Service agents back off? When he resists direction, does anyone forcibly and physically change his mind? In public?
What if the president feels he is being conspired against, which in fact he will be? What if he feels his closest advisors are in on it? Which they will be. What if he summons Oprah, a Senator or his barber or his brother so he can unload on them about the injustice. Then the secret’s out.
Imagine the tabloid headlines: “President a prisoner in the White House!”
Such missteps can be deadly to the cause. The party’s cause, that is.
Imagine the public reaction. Then imagine one or more crises erupting simultaneously in the South China Sea or Israel versus Iran or Russian aggression in Ukraine. Or another purposely released virus.
Are you beginning to feel the urgency? You can bet Democrats do. How long will they wait?
“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
Sounds like the average network or cable news outlet, doesn’t it?
Masks Cause Cancer
A woman was getting on a bus. Suddenly, she stopped. `I’ve forgotten my mask,’ she said. `You can’t come on without a mask,’ said the driver, officiously. A woman who was leaving the bus removed her mask and offered it to the stranger. `Here you are,’ she said, `have mine’. And although I still find it difficult to believe, the maskless woman accepted the gift and put it on – offering her thanks as she wrapped the dirty, used mask around her face. It’s madness, of course. Britons are currently going through 3 billion face masks a month. If people changed their masks as regularly as they should then the figure would be much higher. Even when the rules about wearing masks were softened, many people continued to wear them – encouraged by politicians and others insisting that masks should be worn in some public places. The supermarkets and other establishments I’ve visited since so-called Freedom Day have been as full as ever of mask wearers. Very few shops have staff who are brave enough to show their faces. I would estimate that at least a third wear masks outdoors and ninety per cent wear them in shops and so on. I have previously documented the risks associated with wearing a mask, and my small book entitled “Proof that masks do more harm than good” is available free through my websites,vernoncoleman.org and vernoncoleman.com You can download the book and you can email it free of charge to those who still believe the official lies. The book is filled with scientific evidence proving beyond doubt that wearing a mask does far more harm than good. The incidence of disorders such as bacterial pneumonia is soaring because of the wearing of masks, and many of these deaths will doubtless be inaccurately described as being Covid related. It is no exaggeration to say that the people pushing masks are responsible for thousands of deaths. Commentators in the mainstream media invariably stick to the official line – that masks are valuable – and they rarely if ever even mention the clear and present dangers of covering your mouth and nose. And there is one hazard associated with mask wearing which has been totally ignored by the mainstream media: cancer. We know, without a shadow of doubt, that mask wearing results in low blood oxygen levels – hypoxia. Experiments have been done proving this to be true. And we also know that cancer thrives in a low oxygen environment. And so the inescapable conclusion is that people who wear masks – particularly those who wear them for hours at a time – will be more likely to develop cancer. Moreover, individuals who have had cancer are more likely to suffer from metastases – a spread of their disease – if they wear a mask. This isn’t a theory or a suggestion – it’s an unarguable fact. Just check it out if you don’t believe me. Just type `cancer and oxygen levels’ into a search engine. And then show the results to anyone you know who insists that wearing a mask is sensible. It is clear that mask wearing isn’t just part of the training program – it’s also part of the culling process. Drug companies will benefit, of course, as the demand for chemotherapy drugs rises. UK Government advice is that individuals don’t have to wear a mask if doing so would endanger or damage their health. The precise wording is that you don’t need to wear a face covering if you wish to avoid harm or injury. So that’s pretty clear. If you want to reduce your cancer risk then you should think hard before wearing a mask. Finally, here’s another reason that masks are harmful. Babies need to see human faces as part of their development. It isn’t good for them to see masked faces all day long. Anyone who wears a mask is being cruel to babies. Here’s a slogan for you to put on a T-shirt: `Babies need to see smiles – take off your mask’.

Three and a Half more Years of Biden-Harris
August 21, 2021 (American Thinker) – …Our southern border has evaporated, thanks not to Biden administration incompetence, but it’s very deliberate policy. Two million illegals will invade our country this year alone, bringing with them disease and crime. Speaking of crime, it’s surging in “deconstructed” Democrat-run cities, as an encore to last year’s unchecked rampages in blue metropolises.
Democrats are seeking to reimpose mask tyranny and have added forced vaccination to the mix. “Show us your vax papers” is fascism in the guise of public health policy. Inflation and prices are climbing higher with each passing month, taking bigger bites from paychecks. ..
…The Constitution mandates that the Biden-Harris regime has about 3.5 years remaining. Much damage can be wrought by their regime over that time. Our lows now are likely only glimpses of greater lows ahead. To save freedom, and safeguard ourselves, fights there must be. Patriots aren’t permitted to hang out in the bleachers. We must endure and overcome. Freedom demands a price. Time to prepare ourselves to pay it.
It is dramatic and exceptionally revealing about what we have all been going through over the past year and several months with the internationally orchestrated campaign using COVID to attempt to soon enslave everyone on the planet. There has never been anything like it in history because of extraordinary developments in technology.
I have seen most of the included clips before, but they are put together in a way that somewhat reveals the depth of evil we are dealing with and the dire need to resist – and resist now. You must have been noticing how fast things are changing in a very worrisome and bewildering direction.
There seems to be little time left to act to stop these evil globalist’s plans from succeeding. For them, everything depends on a naïve, compliant, distracted and constantly fearful public not noticing or believing what is being done to the world.
Caution: there is one instance of vulgar language in the video.
Take this seriously. Don’t shy away from facing it. Don’t take the fool’s road of pretending it can’t really all be happening. That will not do you or your family members any good. History should have taught all of us that lesson.
Do not deny the reality of evil in the world and the truth of all that LifeSite has been publishing since the fake, redefined “pandemic” first appeared.
There is another, even more astonishing video that we will present to you next week that reveals how we got to where we are today and a very strange event and meeting in the 1960s of two unlikely persons, who at that time laid much of the groundwork for today’s political, economic and social earthquakes.
By Steve Jalsevac
This call to action is for every person, in every country, of every age, sex, race, creed, religion and nationality. Do not take the coward’s way out by thinking that others are going to act. Even if others do act as warriors against tyranny and totalitarianism, and succeed in regaining your freedom for you, you will not be worthy of it because you did not earn it.
You must say “No” to elitists, billionaires, social media tyrants, corporations and your own government, and those who do their bidding – Refuse to be dehumanized, repressed and enslaved any longer!
You must resist.
If need be, you must be the first to do so.
Only 3% of the inhabitants of what would become these United States of America actually participated in the Revolutionary War.
ONLY 3% !!!!!
Please pass on the link for this video and the encouragement of knowing that it does not take a huge majority to make a difference. Remember,
what you believe is how you live, and is reflected in society and the people you have chosen to govern you.
Be an example. Be a catalyst of rebellion against tyranny and totalitarianism. It is impossible to arrest a thousand people. Even harder to arrest 10,000. Do you really think that if you comply perfectly enough, bow to every edict by the government and utter not a word of protest that your rights will be restored? If you do, you deserve the enslavement that is coming your way, and you have lost the right to complain.
America’s Frontline Doctors presents a powerful delivery of accurate scientific data, the law and a critical defense of human rights, and citizen engagement in the necessary process of protecting American freedom.
A lot of people have a lot to say about a lot of things they know nothing about.
Do not be one of them. Do your own research. Keep in mind the following when listening to/visiting the major news/social media outlets and note what they report or censor: 1. Follow the money, 2. Note who increases in power, 3. Note the progress towards their agenda, 4. Read the platforms of those whom they praise most highly, 5. Read the platforms of those whom they most revile.
Make seeking the truth, and becoming knowledgeable about all sides of an issue, a crucial aspect of your life. Ignorance is not bliss. Instead, it leads to enslavement. Plus, ignorance breeds ignorance. Don’t “pass it along” until you have confirmed for yourself that what you are going to pass along is actually 100% true and 100% the whole truth. Your very way of life is at stake.
A future post will be about the consequences of doing nothing to stem the onslaught of Communism/Socialism dictates and policies, Agenda 21, The New World Order, etc., and the financial and freedom repercussions of doing nothing. Hint: It is worse than you have ever been told…..IF you’ve ever been told anything about them.
Watch the video above to see how the COVID-19 “vaccines” affect your body. Actually, they are NOT vaccines. They are experimental biological agents that utilize gene therapy. They do NOT provide immunity against COVID-19 nor do they prevent you from passing on the virus to others. The manufacturers of the “vaccines” claim only that they will reduce the symptoms (the seriousness) of COVID-19. That’s all! Considering that 99.97% of persons who are healthy and under the age of 70 years old will recover from the virus WITHOUT medical intervention, it doesn’t make sense to accept the more serious risks associated with the “vaccines”.
Dear Media: You got what you wanted and what you worked for. Happy now?
August 16, 2021 (American Thinker) – Our despicable mainstream media did everything in their vast and coercive power to see Joe Biden elected president.
President Trump was a madman, they said, a Hitler, and a host of other ridiculous charges that were patently untrue. He was, and history will show, that he was the best president since Ronald Reagan.
But the media hated him because he wasn’t one of their imagined exalted elite. So they lied, cheated, and stole an election in order to put the dementia-ridden Biden in the Oval Office.
In seven months, Biden has pretty much destroyed America! The open border has welcomed what will be a million migrants from around the world by the end of the year, many of them sick with a panoply of diseases long ago eradicated in America, and bringing in new variants of COVID. While Americans are ordered to mask up and be vaxxed, these people arriving at our southern border, welcomed by the Biden regime that has tied the hands of ICE and the Border Patrol, are mask- and vax-free. Eleven Democrat senators just voted against mandating that they be screened, tested, masked, and vaxxed before being allowed in to roam about the country. How’s that for hypocrisy? Biden is purposefully altering the demographics of the U.S. with the single-minded goal of making the Democrat party the ruling party in perpetuity. He and his partners in crime care not a bit about the American people. They care only about cementing their control over the 330 million citizens who call his nation our home.
As if the breach of our southern border by hundreds of thousands of people seeking what Biden promised — shelter, health care, the vote — was not enough of a treasonous act, he has caused massive inflation — by killing the Keystone pipeline and letting Russia have its own. The Nord Stream 2, which Trump had opposed with sanctions, will enrich Putin’s Russia for decades to come. It will also drive Germany toward Russia as, having nuked their own perfectly logical nuclear power industry, they need the oil and natural gas, which we could have sold to them. Shamefully, Biden is now begging OPEC to pump more oil. Just eight months ago, the U.S. was energy independent.
Biden’s border policy and his anti-energy policy are going to destroy the middle class. Clearly, that is the grand plan. The more people dependent on government largesse, the more votes for Democrats.
But the worst failure of all so far is Biden’s wholesale betrayal of every family who sent one of their own to fight in Afghanistan.
The Biden administration just said you-know-what to the thousands of those killed or maimed over that conflict over the past twenty years. He has sacrificed Afghanistan to the Taliban; he’s sacrificed to them the women and girls who will find themselves back in the seventh century. Biden did this with the malfeasance millions of us knew from him, as the man Robert Gates said has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Biden and his team of incompetents did this — they re-enacted the U.S.’s retreat from Saigon in 1975 — with Americans having to be rescued from the roof of the American embassy. That is happening now in Kabul. Shockingly, pigs flew, and Jake Tapper at CNN actually uttered some true words on Sunday when speaking to the disreputable Antony Blinken, who foolishly tried to defend the regime’s total capitulation to the Taliban. But Tapper, too, is culpable. How could this happen? Thank the disgraceful media that so hated President Trump, that they actually promoted and defended the man who will go down in history as the most incompetent, the most destructive U.S. president.
Did our left-media vet Biden? No. They covered for him. They covered up his lifetime of sexual harassment of women and young girls. They covered up for his racism, his plagiarism, his lies about his own background. They covered for his criminally corrupt son, Hunter. They covered up his obvious dementia. They covered up for his lifetime of corruption. As numerous memes have effectively put out:
“When a billionaire becomes president, the last thing on your mind should be seeing his tax returns. When a career politician with a salary of $174K has a net worth of $50M and owns multiple mansions, people should be asking how.”
Biden has long been one of the most corrupt pols in D.C. All you have to do is read Peter Schweizer’s investigative reporting to see the clarity of that. So who ordered Biden to turn Afghanistan over to China and Russia? Hmmm.
This president should be impeached now, as quickly as possible. He is using his office to destroy the United States, and he’s doing it for personal gain, personal gain he has long enjoyed for selling out his country. And because he is a Democrat, he accomplished all this with the unquestioning help of our anti-American media. They may soon find themselves on the funeral pyre of totalitarianism. Can’t we just see Joy Reid and Jim Acosta screaming as they are hauled off to the camps? “But we loved you, we supported you, we protected you.” Tell it to the Nazi collaborators.
Our once blindly trusted media have been betraying the American people since Walter Cronkite declared the Vietnam War lost. It wasn’t — but the people believed him, and we accepted defeat, condemning millions of Vietnamese, Laotian, and Cambodian people to death. There are millions today who believe what they hear on CNN and MSNBC, no matter how egregious or guilty of omission their reporting is.
Those who pontificate on those outlets, as well as the three networks, are propagandists of the worst kind; they consider themselves worthy of deciding the news to which we can and cannot be exposed. They may well be the death of us all. They deserve only contempt, no respect. There are exceptions, but they are too few and too often suppressed. As for the catastrophic failure of the Biden administration so far, our mainstream media bear much of the responsibility. So benighted are they by Trump’s wisdom and expertise that they have rendered themselves enemies of “We The People.”

The Dystopia Of Progressivism
August 17, 2021 (American Thinker) – Welcome to the new America — the United States of Dystopia: open borders, massive increases in government, reckless spending, crushing debt, demonized and defunded police, coddled criminals, cancel culture, identity politics, censorship, and socialism.
America is becoming unhinged. Who should we blame? One immediate candidate is the progressive wing of the Democrat beltway bureaucracy, the White House, most of Congress, and the mayors and councils of our urban ghettos.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in Alice Through the Looking Glass, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” So liberals now call themselves “progressives.” The term ‘progressive’ stems from the word ‘progress,’ and progress connotes change. “A little change never hurt,” said R.P. McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Well, yes it can; and a lot of change can hurt irreparably. Ask Humpty Dumpty.
Consider two catastrophic events of the 20th century—the Bolshevik Revolution, which created the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the rise of Adolf Hitler, who formed the National Socialist German Workers Party. Both were socialist, both promised change, both were ‘progressive,’ and both did incalculable harm to their people and their neighbors.
Closer to home, the socialist ‘utopias’ of Cuba and Venezuela belie the claim that change necessarily means progress. George Orwell prophetically described them in Animal Farm and 1984.
And now the progressives want to change America by opening borders, defunding police, emptying jails, increasing debt, suppressing speech, and revising history. Already, too many potential Democrats are crossing the border, irrespective of COVID, trafficking and, the fentanyl accompanying them. But Cubans, unlike Central Americans, are not welcome since they tend to vote Republican. Our cities burn and innocent citizens are shot, but the police who serve and protect must be demonized and jails emptied, because disorder is preferable to order whose maintenance is the first duty of sound government.
Suppressing speech is not progress. Yet Leftists routinely defame their opponents as ‘racist,’ ‘sexist,’ ‘misogynistic,’ ‘homophobic,’ ‘xenophobic,’ ‘fascist,’ or ‘deplorable,’ using demagoguery reminiscent of Senator Joseph McCarthy to drown out speech with which they disagree.
The founders of our Republic believed that the most precious rights should be enshrined in the First Amendment — freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of faith — but neither the McCarthyites nor Antifa have much sympathy for the First Amendment. Wherever Communists have attained power, they imprison and torture counter-revolutionaries or sentence them to Gulags for re-education. Autocrats abhor free speech.
The winds of political correctness in corporate America and professional sports have fanned the flames of intolerance. The Left insists on blaming history — specifically, one race, one gender, one lineage as if the child is guilty of the father’s (and forefathers’) sins. It jettisons Martin Luther King’s dream that one day our children will “live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” We must atone not for what we have done, but for who we are, declaring as myth the characterization by Kennedy and Reagan that America is a shining city on a hill. Perhaps there never was such a city on a hill — only an aspiration that one day, with hard work and goodwill, there might be, a beacon of hope for those deprived of liberty in benighted countries.
And so, we pull down our statutes, behavior that is little different from ISIS, which destroyed the statues of Palmyra, or the Taliban, which dynamited the Buddhas at Bamiyan. Whether the targets are symbolic (Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben) or emblematic (Mark Twain, Dr. Seuss, Christopher Columbus, or Theodore Roosevelt) the motive of intolerance is the same. Our flag is burned, our businesses looted, our cities torched, our National Anthem politicized, our police demonized, and our neighbors ostracized because, as Gulliver learned, they open their eggs at the wrong end.
Why would Vladimir Putin try to divide America when the media does it for him? One wonders whether CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and other mainstream media outlets have jettisoned objective journalism in favor of propaganda. If the culprits hew to the left, in the media narrative riots, looting, and arson become “peaceful protests. Social media, ruled by leftist elites, subdue and restrict conservative voices while amplifying liberal ones.
Unlike conservatives, who believe in equality of opportunity in a capitalist economy, liberals believe in equality of outcomes in a socialist economy, with government technocrats choosing winners and losers. Unfortunately, focusing on outcomes blinds us to opportunities. Free markets reward those who innovate, irrespective of race, gender, or religion.
But the Left insists on dividing America into white and non-white, rich and poor, urban and rural, bourgeois and proletariat, oppressed and oppressor, and winners and losers. Leftists speak of “white privilege,” “systemic racism,” and “Jim Crow,” forgetting that it was Democrat leaders who mismanaged their cities and failed to deliver the Arcadia. Believing that black and white, male and female, and rich and poor are irreconcilable opposites, they nurture in our children feelings of guilt and shame, not hope and optimism
There is no progress in division; only scapegoating. Candidate Biden promised to unite America. President Biden divides it.
Let us hope for all our sakes that America, unlike Humpty Dumpty, can be put back together again.
Luciferian elites will continue to steal elections and terrorize humanity until they meet overwhelming resistance
The objective is to turn us against each other and provoke a civil war. We must resist their provocations. The globalists, with no love of any country and a hatred for God, are the enemy. Resist them.
Aug 16, 2021 (Leo Hohmann) – Digital health passports are no longer the stuff of conspiracy theories, they are here, with New York City, Los Angeles and several other major cities handing themselves over as the American testing grounds for global technocrats.
If businesses actually comply with the demand that people be separated like cattle and treated differently based on their willingness to submit to a certain medical treatment, then God help us. These digital passports will quickly spread to other cities and towns across America. Everyone will be required to “show your digital papers” before entering a place of business to buy or sell.
It’s already happening across Europe, which is always a little ahead of America in the race to eliminate freedom.
I’ve explained in previous articles the significance of digital passports, who is promoting them and what type of society the powers behind this technology wish to create.
Many of those articles left me mentally exhausted and research weary.
But if those were penned from the head, this one’s from the heart. I decided I could not live with myself if I didn’t put out a no holds barred assessment of the diabolical nature of what is now overtaking the earth.
Truth is, a color revolution was successfully orchestrated in the United Sates in November and December of last year. This opened the door for global power elites who hate America and everything it stands for to make their final desperate move for total control over humanity. Their goal is global governance over a drastically reduced world population and after decades of working toward this end they feel now is the time to make their decisive chess move. A checkmate for all time.
Could they have overplayed their hand? I hope so.
But it’s also possible they may be too far invested to walk things back. Because the evil ones have removed their masks and boldly called for such obviously totalitarian measures, such as forced masking and forced injections of every man, woman and child, they have awakened a great number within the sleeping masses.
With an awakened global population and protests breaking out across the world, the globalists know that we know what they are up to. They cannot retreat or they will lose everything, up to and possibly including their heads. They must double down.
What they have planned is global technocracy, a system of dictatorship by “experts,” which include scientists, engineers and bureaucrats like Dr. Anthony Fauci. Picture the regimes of Hitler, Stalin and Mao augmented by the powers of artificial intelligence, computer algorithms, facial-recognition software and gene-editing programs. Now you are staring into the face of a modern-day technocracy.
While many have woken up to the threat, there are still far too many sleeping. To the delight of the global predators of technocracy, these sleep walkers remain stuck in the mire of the worn-out Democrat vs. Republican paradigm.
They’re still looking over the horizon to 2022 and 2024, anticipating the arrival of their long-awaited saviors. They completely overlook the importance of now.
They do not understand that what occurred on Nov. 3 and Jan. 6 was designed as a coup, a permanent transfer of power away from the people and into the hands of a relative few powerful elites.
The only way to reverse this power transfer will be by the sheer force of aggressive human action. I’m not talking about violence. I am talking about a mass resistance of millions standing up and saying “no” to health passports and “no” to dehumanizing masks.
Even the vaccinated who care about freedom should refuse to darken the door of any business asking to see a health passport.
No politician is going to ride to our rescue in 2022 or 2024. No court is going to step in and right the wrongs. No police agency is going to haul out the guilty parties in handcuffs.
It’s too late for that. We must do this ourselves, people. Now. Our GOP politicians are for the most part cowards. They don’t see the urgency of the moment, and even if they did they would be too afraid to do anything about it.
A few will speak up and say the right things from time to time, but if words do not translate into actions, if they aren’t giving direction to the awakened masses, telling them when and how to resist, what good are they?
Showing up for a Trump rally and going home is not productive. Merely casting votes is no longer productive unless we first take back what was stolen.
If anyone doubts the total fecklessness of the Republican Party, all they need to do is look at what went down this week. No less than 19 GOP senators crossed over and voted with Chuck Schumer and the Democrats to pass a $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill that has nothing to do with infrastructure.
Think about that.
Nearly 40 percent of our GOP senators voted with Democrats for a bill loaded with poison pills meant to collapse what’s left of our capitalist economy and usher in the green new deal, Chinese-style smart cities and total digital surveillance.
On deck is an amnesty bill granting legal status to more than 30 million illegal migrants and sending the message to future migrants that if you come, you will be granted a path to full U.S. citizenship, no questions asked.
This 19-vote cross over disproves the argument that we “lost the Senate” in January because conservative voters in Georgia failed to turn out for two GOP senators in a special election. The truth is we lost the Senate the day GOP senators voted to support globalist boot-licker Mitch McConnell as their leader. In the House we have the equally inept globalist ally Kevin McCarthy.
What about the Supreme Court and its six Republican-appointed justices? Can they be trusted? Remember this is the esteemed body that refused to even look at the evidence suggesting massive voter fraud in the 2020 election, citing the laughable excuse that no one, not a single American, had legal standing to bring such a case before them. How dare they even try!
The laws and the Constitution are not going to save us because those in charge of applying them lack the courage to stand up to the coup plotters.
The police are not going to save us. In the end, they will follow orders.
The military? The signs haven’t exactly inspired confidence. The coup that occurred in late 2020 and early 2021 could still be reversed but it won’t happen by the ballot box – not when we have an outside third-party private vendor hiding behind its proprietary software in control of elections in all 50 states. These private vendors are not accountable to we the people, they don’t answer to us, and as long as they are in charge of vote tabulation, nothing will change.
This systemic, technology-based vote fraud is not limited to presidential elections. Cyber experts at Mike Lindell’s cyber security symposium, held recently in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, said that in the 2018 race for Kentucky governor, votes were flipped from Republican Matt Bevin to Democrat Andy Beshear, enough to hand Beshear a razor-thin margin of victory.
Nor is this just an American problem. Electronic voting machines are used worldwide and controlled by a handful of well-connected global corporations.
The successful color revolution in the U.S. triggered a broader global power play that is now in progress. Once-free nations are falling to totalitarianism under the guise of “protecting public health.”
This may well mark the end of the age of individual nation states and individual rights, moving into a new age of technocratic globalism, where everyone is expected to fall in line for the benefit of the “global collective good.” Problem is, those defining the terms of what is morally right and good are the same crowd that’s repeatedly said “saving the planet” requires depopulation and less individual freedom.
Former Republican Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger typified the elitists’ attitude toward those of us who refuse their masks, their medicines and their social distancing.
“No. Screw your freedom,” Schwarzenegger, the son of a Nazi police officer, said to the non-maskers and anti-vaxxers in a recent video interview. If you don’t put on a mask and inject the mandated serum, “You’re a schmuck,” he said.
In the above video, Schwarzenegger unknowingly described the modern-day technocracy, where politicians no longer matter. All power and authority has been ceded to “experts” to rule over the ignorant masses who can’t be trusted to make decisions for their own lives.
When the new digital currency is rolled out, I believe that will mark the point of no return for nations that join the new monetary system. The pressure to do so will be intense, just as the pressure is intense on individuals to give up sovereignty over their own bodies.
This is a spiritual war between good and evil.
The initial targets will be traditionally minded Christians and Jews.
But make no mistake, this evil system will demand everyone’s allegiance.
Why? Because at its core it acts as a cult demanding obedience. Nazism was very similar to today’s technocracy in this regard.
In his 2008 book Rise of the Fourth Reich, author Jim Marrs highlighted the spiritual underpinnings of Hitler’s Third Reich.
Marrs writes: “Even Hitler acknowledged that Nazi ideology ventured into the spiritual realm, when he stated ‘Anyone who interprets National Socialism merely as a political movement knows almost nothing about it. It is more than religion; it is the determination to create a new man.”
The same inspiration that gave rise to the Third Reich is now fueling the Fourth Reich.
This is a battle, unique in history, for who owns our bodies. Your body. My body. Everyone’s body.
The globalist mantra of “build it back better” applies not only to economies and social structures but also to humanity itself.
These elites truly believe they can deconstruct what it means to be human and rebuild it “better.” They hate God and so they detest the humanity God created in His image. They hate the idea of nations because God ordained the nations.
They wish to destroy God-given human instincts like protecting the innocence of children, respect for human life, the nuclear family, compassion for the elderly, etc., and replace them with their satanically inspired values.
The digital health passports are the linchpin to the creation of a new beast system of total information domination, where everything you do is tracked and traced and evaluated for its conformity to the global rules. The passports will eventually be connected to the banking system and a new digital currency that will replace cash. You buck the rules, you lose access to your money.
Anyone who refuses to live as a digital slave by putting the tracking app on their phone that converts them to a walking QR code, will find themselves targeted for persecution.
The stakes couldn’t be bigger.
Everything else going on in the world right now is mere noise meant to divert your attention from the real catastrophe being wrought upon mankind. We are in the middle of a mass deconstruction project with the goal being the creation of humanity 2.0 and the re-institution of slavery. Digital slavery.
Don’t be fooled. These injections are anti-God and anti-human, and the pressure being brought to bear on all humanity to accept these shots as a new and continuous part of their lives is unprecedented. This pressure is undeniably coming from the top down, starting at the apex of an evil network that includes the Rockefeller Foundation, the Gates Foundation and his GAVI Global Alliance, the Soros foundations, the Vatican, the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations, among others. From there it filters down to the major corporations.
This Luciferian cartel of global predators believe they can exploit COVID to reset the entire world system, killing off any resisters and conditioning the ones who were already inclined toward obedience to become their digital serfs.
The objective is to turn us against each other and provoke a civil war. We must resist their provocations. The globalists, with no love of any country and a hatred for God, are the enemy. Resist them. Refuse to buy their products, go to their theme parks, don’t watch their Netflix movies or go to their major sporting events, don’t ride on their airplanes when it’s possible to drive, don’t put money in their big banks and use cash whenever possible.
And most importantly, say no to the needle. It will not advance your health in any way, not your physical, mental or emotional health.
These injections are meant to keep you sick and dependent for the rest of your life on future Big Pharma products, replacing your natural God-given immune system with their synthetic and totally inferior counterfeit immune system. Get it? Your “protection” and your very existence depends on them.
Do you really want that for your life, your children’s lives?
I find it frustrating how little due diligence the average person is willing to do to know or confirm the truth. I often feel that I am one of only a few who spots the lies, the half-truths and the manipulation by the mainstream media, social media, the current un-elected administration and other politicians who benefit from keeping the current false narrative going.
There are certain lies that nearly everyone I know believes. Even after explaining to them why a so-called “fact” is actually false, referring them to older pages of websites which now spout lies, and encouraging them to do their own research, my efforts have produced no change. I have come to the conclusion that they do not wish to know the truth because the lies are what they want to hear and the thought of facing the truth is more than they can handle emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. They are, however, short-sighted since the truth has an habit of smacking us in the face sooner or later. Like any issue, it is always so much easier to deal with it at the beginning – “nip it in the bud”.
The most common misconceptions I have been trying to correct are:
1. Masks are effective at preventing infection and transmission of viruses – Wrong! The virus that causes Covid-19 is 1/1000th the size of a human hair. It has no trouble passing through the common types of masks, both ways. This can be confirmed just by reading your package of masks.
2. Masks are harmless – Wrong! They decrease the amount of oxygen that is available to breathe because the carbon dioxide that is expelled when you breath out displaces some of the oxygen. In other words, you are breathing “used” air. This is particularly harmful to the developing brains of children. Masks are a form of societal control, and when it is demanded that children wear them. it is a form of child abuse. Their purpose is to train them to be comfortable with having no say over their existence, but to instead obey the elitists who truly consider themselves superior to “the masses”.
3. “Cases” are raging – Wrong! “Cases” are irrelevant. The medical term “case” is purposely being exploited and misused. A “case” is when a person shows symptoms of a particular disease, it does not mean a person has tested “positive” for it; but, the latter is the stat that the mainstream media, social media and the current regime are using. Just because someone is “positive” means nothing. Most persons, especially those under 19 years old, will be either asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. Besides, the scientist who developed the PCR test has said that it was created for use in a research setting, not as a diagnostic test. It can detect, if misused – and it is – a strand of a virus you recovered from years ago. The false “positives” range from 50% to 90%. All that is important are hospitalizations and deaths, but you will find that those statistics are rarely shared because they would expose the limits of the virus, thereby negating the false narrative. Besides, they are exaggerated many-fold.
4. Hospitals are being overwhelmed – Wrong! There was a brief time when some hospitals were full; but, when the medicals ships came and parked off the two coasts, they had few patients. There was so little need for medical personnel when elective and medically necessary surgeries and procedures were cancelled that a significant number of medical staff across the country were laid off.
5. Asymptomatic persons can transmit the virus – Wrong! There is virtually 0% chance that someone who does not present with symptoms can transmit the virus. That is true of all viruses. The belief that asymptomatic persons are “a danger to society” is fearmongering, which leads to abuse. (See #1)
6. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. residents have died from the virus – Wrong! Even the CDC has stated that only around 6% of those listed as a “Covid-19” death have died of the virus – the rest were found to be “positive” – and the majority were elderly with three or more co-morbidities such as obesity, diabetes, heart problems, etc. If you are under 50 years old and basically healthy, you have, even without medical intervention, a 99.97% chance of recovering just fine.
7. The “vaccine” is crucial for us to get back to a “new normal” – Wrong! There are effective, inexpensive and easily (used to be) obtained treatments whose existence has been squashed by those who have a nefarious agenda. This “vaccine” would never have been authorized if these treatments had been disclosed because “Emergency Use Authorization” is only available for drugs, vaccines, etc. if there is no available treatment. This makes it clear that the elitists have no interest in whether one lives or dies, only that they accomplish their goals of power and control. Most deaths would not have occurred if the known treatments had been administered.
8. The Covid-19 “vaccine” is safe and effective – Wrong! How is it possible to know this when it was only developed about a year ago? The small pox vaccine took decades to develop and be approved. Other vaccines have taken 10 years. Also, the Covid-19 “jab” is not a vaccine. It does not work like a vaccine and has no characteristics of a vaccine. The term “vaccine” is just more palatable than “experimental biological agent that utilizes gene therapy”. Once the solution is in your body, it never leaves. There is no way to know all the side effects; however, according to the reporting database VAERS, at least 16,000 have died as a direct result of the vaccine, and, unlike the virus itself, it kills those of all ages – and VAERS admits that only about 1% of side-effects and deaths are reported! Young men, in particular, risk heart inflammation that can cause permanent damage. This “jab” provides no benefit, but does have major risks, for those with a statistically 0% chance of dying from the virus. (See #6)
9. The Covid-19 “vaccine” drastically reduces the chance of transmitting or acquiring the virus – Wrong! Even the manufacturers do not say this. What they do say is that it will reduced the severity of the symptoms and decrease the chance of dying; but, for those under 50 years old and basically healthy, the chance of dying is so insignificant that the “jab” is not only not necessary, it can be harmful. What the hell is in that stuff that all elitists are pushing for 100% of the world to get it? Suspiciously, it has been shown that at least one filthy rich elitist has no intention of getting it or allowing his family to receive it – Facebook founder, Zuckerberg. Why?
10. Lockdowns and distancing have helped slow the spread of the virus – Wrong! Like masks, these measures do nothing. None of the mandates forced upon the U.S. and other countries have anything to do with keeping us “safe”. They have everything to do with training and indoctrination. Articles on the CDC website dated prior to 2020 say exactly this: there is little to no benefit to the wearing of masks, being forced into quarantine when one isn’t ill or maintaining anti-social distancing. There is no scientific basis for any of these measures. The next time you hear someone say “follow the science” as they are stripping you of all of your basic liberties, scream “liar”.
I could list hundreds more ways that we are being lied to and manipulated, but what good would it do? Either you believe me outright or believe me because you have done your own research, or you don’t believe me because you have an agenda, are too lazy to determine the truth or are uninterested in knowing it. Those adhering to the latter three reasons are, in big part, responsible for the current ushering in of Communism and the elimination of all of the rights that previous generations gave their lives to defend. The United States of America will die because her people are intentionally ignorant, and incredibly passive and cowardly.
What will segregated society look like for the unvaxxed?
In 2020, the proposition that COVID-19 countermeasures would come to include forced vaccination and vaccine passports, resulting in a segregated society where only those participating in the COVID injection experiment have human rights, was labeled a wild conspiracy theory unworthy of discussion.
THE STORY AT-A-GLANCE
High-profile restaurant chains like Shake Shack and Union Square Hospitality will require staff and indoor diners in New York City and Washington D.C. to show proof of COVID “vaccination,” starting September 7, 2021
Vaccinated-only bars and restaurants have also popped up in Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, Boulder, St. Louis and New Orleans
A growing number of private companies are also requiring workers to participate in human medical experimentation or forfeit their job. High profile examples include Facebook, Google, Twitter, Lyft, Uber, Saks Fifth Avenue, The Washington Post, BlackRock, Ascension Health, Netflix, Walmart, the Walt Disney Corporation and Morgan Stanley
PayPal is vowing to block transactions and cancel accounts held by “extremists” and anyone endangering “at-risk communities,” which could include just about anything, including anti-vaccine rhetoric
CNN anchor Don Lemon has suggested unvaccinated people ought to be barred from buying food in grocery stores and have their driver’s license taken away
Biden’s Six Months In Office Have Us On The Road To Communism
August 9, 2021 (American Thinker) – Capitalism, with all its warts and pimples, is the way people organize themselves of their own volition. It is economic freedom. Socialism and its children – communism and fascism — can only be foisted on a population through tyrannical coercion and brute force. Dean Koontz, in Icebound, summed up communism, writing,
This was senseless, pointless lunacy…but nothing the communists had ever done made sense, not anywhere in the world.…Their ideology was nothing but a mad hunger for unrestrained power, politics as a cult religion divorced from morality and reason and their bloody rampages and bottomless cruelty could never be analyzed or understood by anyone not of their mad persuasion.
We’re not there yet but, as our friends from Venezuela have tried to warn us, we’re well on our way and following closely in their footsteps. We’re now immersed in “senseless, pointless, lunacy,” while our politicians dabble in “a mad hunger for unrestrained power.”
America’s southern border is open. According to the US Customs and Border Patrol, close to 190,000 people crossed into the United States in June alone, and that number has been accelerating in the six months since the Biden administration reversed all the Trump-era policies and refused to enforce existing immigration law.
At this rate, it’s not inconceivable that we’ll have absorbed another 30 million illegal immigrants, or about 10 percent of the current U.S. population if Joe Biden serves two terms. That is an invasion. The US military should be lined up virtually shoulder to shoulder along the entire length of the southern border.
But then who would vote for Democrats? The only immigrants crossing into this country from the south who would not eventually vote for Democrats in large numbers are Cuban refugees. They are also, by and large, the only group with legitimate asylum claims — and they are the only group Biden’s government is turning away. Their fate is something you probably don’t want to think about, but it serves the purposes of the Biden administration, whose goal is to import as many future Democrat voters as humanly possible.
The Canadian border is now closed due to COVID but illegal immigrants streaming across our southern border with their ten percent Covid infection rate are being transported at taxpayer expense into the U.S. interior. If this doesn’t qualify as senseless, pointless, lunacy, I don’t know what would.
The people pulling the strings on this insanity may well be communists, but they’re often dressed up as something else. Once they’ve wrecked the Constitution and the middle class, then immigration will certainly dry up. If it’s bad enough, a mass exodus will begin and that is when the left will take off the masks and finish Trump’s border wall.
Where are the Republicans? I know they didn’t sign up for this. “Congressman” is supposed to be a pretty cushy gig. An upper-class salary for life, the best healthcare the country has to offer, and their own police force with a budget now over half a billion dollars a year to protect a few hundred people. Is anyone trying to defund the capital police budget? On the contrary, it is increasing.
Unfortunately for the pampered egotists in Congress, the good times can’t keep rolling. Leftists want to burn the country down and then rebuild it as a third-world communist hellhole, as they’ve done in so many other places around the world. Republicans must start earning their overinflated paychecks or they will be responsible for a great nation’s demise.
We’ve been waiting a long time for them to grow a backbone and start standing up to the left. Some, having gauged the gravity of the moment, are pushing back against the Democrats, but most are still sitting on their hands or actively opposing any effort to rein in all the madness.
Leftists have long known that they can only enact their utopian dreams with an endless parade of existential crises. Global warming was just such a crisis, virtually brimming with potential until all the dire predictions came up woefully short. People in the north still know what snow is like though it should have disappeared off the scene twenty years ago. We don’t hear much from Al Gore anymore. Having made his fortune selling carbon indulgences, he’s retired to enjoy his massive carbon footprint, which likely exceeds that of many small nations.
AOC’s 12-year doomsday scenario will come and go, and nothing will have changed. She will claim that Democrats fixed the problem just in a nick of time and the new class of public-school automatons will burst into tears, saying, “Thank Gaia.”
If her Green New Deal goes into effect, or the Paris climate hoaxers manage to siphon off American wealth, we may see doomsday for America but the world will be just fine. Poorer and much less free, but otherwise just fine. Cubans average $17 dollars a month but their “wonderful” healthcare and “fabulous” government housing are free, so there’s that to look forward to.
The change from “global warming” to “climate change” was devised to save the crisis. Thinking people have been scratching their heads ever since. The climate has been changing for as long as there has been an earth. A mere 12,000 years ago, much of the planet was shrouded in ice. A thousand years ago, during the little climactic optimum, average temperatures were much higher than today’s. We should be thanking our lucky stars for climate change, but the left has taught our kids to hate America and capitalism because we are the ones driving this non-existent problem. More lunacy.
If we ignore, for just a moment, all the obvious fraud involved in the last election, then you could easily make the case that COVID cost Donald Trump the 2020 election. As we entered the 2020 political season, we went from the lowest unemployment rate in generations to one of the highest on record. Basically, the economy tanked thanks to the COVID lockdowns.
It now appears that the people recommending lockdowns to Trump were complicit in the dangerous research taking place in the Wuhan labs. The NIH, the WHO, and the CCP have all been behaving as though they have a great deal to hide and it’s not unreasonable to believe that they do.
It might sound like a “bridge too far” to think that the entire episode could have been orchestrated to bring down the president of the United States, but yesterday’s crazy conspiracies keep turning into today’s insane reality. Who would have believed that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats could fabricate phony evidence, present it to the media, and that the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA would spend three years trying to oust Trump while knowing full well that the case was built on lies. It turned out to be worse than the wildest conspiracy theory but to this day nobody has been held responsible.
Even if you can’t believe the whole thing was a setup, it’s obvious that, once the COVID ball started rolling, the media and Deep State used it to destroy Trump. I guess a setup conspiracy is probably a bit of a stretch. That would, after all, be “senseless, pointless, lunacy,” and “bottomless cruelty.”
Aug 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Echoing the calls of other American public figures, the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) said Sunday he is supportive of businesses requiring customers to prove they have received an experimental coronavirus vaccine.
On Sunday, Dr. Francis Collins spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union” and revealed his belief that vaccine passports should be mandated by private businesses.
CNN journalist Anchor Jake Tapper asked Collins, “Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?”
“As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes,” Collins responded. “I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing.”
“I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated,” Collins continued, also praising President Biden for mandating vaccines for all federal employees who don’t want to submit to COVID tests twice a week.
“I oversee NIH, with 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not, to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of those steps, I think is in the right direction,” he stated. “Maybe that’s what it will take for some of those who have still been a little reluctant to say, ‘okay, it’s time.’”
“The data will support the decision. They are making the right choice for their own safety. Sometimes it takes a nudge,” he said, suggesting that limiting unvaccinated people’s access to grocery stores is only a “nudge.”
Tucker Carlson addressed Collins’s statement on Tuesday during “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” saying, “Francis Collins at the same time wants you to know that even if you have been vaccinated, you can’t go back to your normal life.”
“The vaccine is perfect – but you still have to wear a mask and can’t go outside,” Tucker continued, paraphrasing Collins.
“Collins did not explain how unvaccinated people could possibly pose a threat to vaccinated people, because remember that the vaccines work so well, we have to mandate them for public health reasons,” he stated.
“But at the same time people who have been vaccinated are threatened by those who don’t,” he said, pointing out the inconsistency. “Are you following this? Does it make any sense to you at all? Do you need a medical degree to know it’s complete nonsense? No, you don’t.”
Collins failed to address the concerns which many Americans have with taking the experimental vaccine, including a lack of evidence that it is effective and the many reports of serious side effects. Collins also failed to address what he thinks should happen to people unable to take the vaccine due to allergies or severe reaction to the first dose of the vaccine (myocarditis, blood clots, Guillain-Barré syndrome).
Both CNN reporters and guests have repeatedly voiced their support for limiting the activities of unvaccinated people and the implementation of so-called vaccine passports.
Already, when Americans receive a coronavirus vaccine, they are issued a wallet-sized proof of vaccination card, which can be used as proof of vaccine.
Beginning in September, New York City will require proof of coronavirus vaccine to enter or work in gyms, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
Manitoba, Canada is currently requiring immunization cards to access nonessential services like cinemas, which a lawyer from a top Canadian constitutional legal firm affirmed is the same as a vaccine passport.
In France, the government plans to implement compulsory COVID-19 “vaccination” and COVID-19 status rules obliging each citizen to show a QR-code sanitary pass to access large shopping centers, restaurants, cafés, bars, cinemas, theaters, hospitals, cultural and leisure venues receiving more than 50 visitors, and long-distance public transportation.
In response to this mandate, the French people have risen up in massive protests across the country, with some drawing hundreds of thousands of people.

Numerous scientific papers offer contrary indications to the mainstream media’s narrative, which promotes the theory of asymptomatic transmission as being a driving cause of the spread of COVID-19 (Click link below).
7/31/2021 (The Wanderer News) – During the eighteenth century, so the story goes, Grigory Potyomkin, a Russian nobleman, was courting Catherine the Great. When he invited the Tsarina to visit the Crimea, he wanted to impress her. However, in those days the Crimea just wasn’t very impressive.
So Potyomkin created a Crimea of his own. Along the route taken by Catherine’s entourage, beautiful villages dotted the landscape in the distance. Brilliantly outfitted soldiers rode by while fireworks blazed.
It was all fake news. The “villages” were paintings erected on faraway wooden platforms. Behind them were hovels and misery.
All in all, Grigory’s big show was a massive con. And thus arose the legend of the “Potemkin Village.”
As one definition puts it, “any deceptive or false construct, conjured often by cruel regimes, to deceive both those within the land and those peering in from outside.”
The image of the cardboard village comes to mind as a major network leads the evening news with, “Thanks to the Delta Variant, Pandemic-Related Anxiety Is Back.”
Get the message? “Be afraid. Be very afraid.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been pushing her fear campaign ever since she declared a year ago that the Covid strain from Wuhan was really the “Trump Virus.” In January, she built her stockade around the Capitol, although the nation’s capital was virtually empty.
From her mask mandates and her mandatory vaccination campaign to her current rerun of “The Secrets of January 6th” routine, Pelosi has fed the media with plenty of material designed to stir fear and to distract our attention from the very real disasters she has been pushing through the House of Representatives.
And there are plenty of them.
Long ago, Pelosi’s family in Baltimore introduced her to the discipline of their Mafia pals. She has used that experience to keep her House Democrat caucus in line to pass radical legislation that’s designed to make her party’s dominant power permanent.
H.R. 1, the “For the People” Act, makes the Democrats the only “people” that count, and puts them in charge of every election at every level nationwide. H.R. 5, the “Equality Act,” shoves gender ideology down the throat of every family, neighborhood, school, and enterprise in America. Threats of mandatory masks, vaccinations, and purges of “white supremacy” abound.
Behind it all, Pelosi is masterminding nothing less than a brutal gang-rape of everything that is good about America.
Will Nancy Let This Crisis Go To Waste?
Democrats are pushing the “crisis” narrative these days, and that invites a trip down Memory Lane.
We bear in mind that as Speaker, Pelosi is second, after Kamala Harris, in the line of presidential succession. We wonder, what would happen if Joe and “Dr. Jill” went back to Delaware early, resigning like Richard Nixon did in August 1974?
What would happen if Kamala Harris suffered the unhappy fate of Vice-President Spiro Agnew?
Would Nancy Pelosi shrink from the challenge?
We recall that, when the Left went after President Nixon fifty years ago, they had to get rid of Agnew first. Since Agnew came from the same corrupt Baltimore that brought us Nancy Pelosi, the necessary dirt wasn’t hard to find.
After Agnew resigned in October 1973, House Speaker Carl Albert (D., Okla.) was next in the line of presidential succession for two months, until Gerald Ford became vice-president in December.
“I pray for Richard Nixon every day,” Albert told a reporter at the time. Clearly he wasn’t interested in being president.
Is Nancy Pelosi, that “faithful Catholic,” praying for Joe and Kamala every day?
Well, in the meantime, Pelosi is relying on Biden and Harris to play their part in painting the flimsy façade of normalcy. The Washington Post gushes over Joe’s insatiable appetite for ice cream and Harris’ celebrated passion for knitting.
But they never leave fear very far behind. The virtues of masks, vaccinations, and the endless wars against racism and global warming are now the credo of the power cult. It’s all fear, all the time.
Pulling Back The Curtain
Pelosi’s part in the soap opera is designed to distract us from a real disaster: trillion-dollar spending bills, ballooning inflation, unprecedented savagery to the unborn, a million new illegal aliens secretly transported to unwilling communities throughout the country, a historic surge in crime, and a collapse of the United States in the face of the Communist Chinese lust for hegemony.
So the fear must be stoked. But Pelosi is also aware that, as Republican Senate Majority Leader Howard used to say: “That door swings both ways.”
The Speaker has done everything she can to keep her version of “January 6” alive, but reality seems increasingly to be getting in the way.
Her current effort, the “truth commission,” stumbled when two Republican members threatened to focus on some “forbidden questions.” When Pelosi simply kicked them off the commission, the rest of the Republicans withdrew to form their own investigative committee.
While Pelosi’s move guarantees a 100 percent anti-Trump bias among the group that remains (every member of the commission has voted to impeach Trump in the past), those forbidden questions are now going to take center stage on the other side of the aisle.
Republicans don’t deny the collapse of security on January 6, and they praise the actions of the police who tried to defend the Capitol.
But they also want to know whether it’s Pelosi herself who bears the responsibility for that chaotic collapse of Capitol security.
On January 7, the House and Senate Sergeants-at-Arms and the Capitol Police Chief all resigned. Two weeks later, the new Chief admitted to Congress that the Department had “failed adequately to act on intelligence” received days before the incursion.
Those are fighting words, of course, because Pelosi was firmly in charge. She won’t allow her commission to discuss the question, but the Republicans are sure to. And that prospect poses a serious threat.
Consider: Washington’s Pelosi-friendly media realize they can no longer bury the story. For the past week they’ve run countless stories seeking to place the blame for that fiasco on someone else — anybody else. And that means they’re desperate.
But wait, there’s more. Another Pelosi problem has emerged regarding the death of Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed 110-pound demonstrator who was the only person killed at the Capitol that day.
The Democrats had formally kept secret the shooter’s name, but everyone knows it. He is a member of Pelosi’s personal security team, and a careless one at that. He had earlier left his loaded Glock pistol in a public men’s room in the Capitol; why was he never disciplined for that gross negligence?
We don’t know. Some critics allege that his absolution was due to his minority status, but others shrug and say, “Look, Pelosi runs the show. Period.”
For how long? Only time will tell.
Let’s Get Serious
One wonders, given their continued manipulation of the record, just how serious are the Democrats on the issue of terrorism?
We recall that on March 1, 1954, four armed Puerto Rican nationalists entered the House gallery in the Capitol and shot five Members of Congress. The four were convicted and sent to federal prison. They served their time until Democrat Jimmy Carter granted them clemency in 1979.
On November 7, 1983, Susan Rosenberg planted a bomb outside the GOP Senate cloakroom. She was convicted and sent to federal prison. Democrat Bill Clinton pardoned her in January 2001, and she now raises money for Black Lives Matter.
Are these people serious? Are Democrats really interested in justice at all?
In the last six months, the Biden Administration has fomented the decline of the FBI and the Department of Justice, as they borrow from the methods of Stasi, the Cheka, and the Brownshirts of the last century. Their zealous pursuit of Trump supporters bears an unfortunate resemblance to the “courts” that Stalin put together to punish his closest allies in the 1930s.
Many of us remember how the Soviets convicted Cardinal Mindszenty in his show trial 72 years ago. Is that what America’s Left has in mind for us?
Sacrificing ‘essential liberty to gain a little temporary safety’ is the death of freedom
Ceding to government the authority to decide what goes into our bodies surely cedes to government the authority to determine everything else we do with those bodies, too.
July 28, 2021 (American Thinker) – As purportedly “free” countries all over the world get their tyrannical freak on by insisting that every citizen be jabbed with an experimental pharmaceutical cocktail or face the wrath of the Leviathan, I am reminded of a letter from Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, in which he remarked: “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive.”
Jefferson’s point was that ordinary citizens represent a necessary check on the natural abuses of government and the last line of defense against corruption and political tyranny.
Make no mistake: the writer of the Declaration of Independence saw government not as a benefactor of man’s freedom, but rather its adversary. “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground,” Jefferson warned in another letter to Edward Carrington, a distinguished soldier and Virginia statesman. Free people don’t stay free by blindly trusting everything government officials say and do; free people stay free by treating government with great apprehension and even greater suspicion.
That’s exactly what we’re finally seeing play out in England, Ireland, France, Italy, Australia, and everywhere else ordinary citizens have taken to the streets to protest their governments’ handling of the China Virus — a contagion that looks less and less like some microscopic pathogen and more and more like a “Great Reset” bug spreading communist China’s totalitarianism far and wide. In nations that ironically define themselves in contrast to closed, communist societies, Western governments have given themselves the powers to lock people up in their homes at whim, dictate who may pray and when, demand that citizens submit to experimental medical treatments, and punish aggressively anyone who dares question what authorities have branded as truth.
There is no free speech when only the government’s speech is allowed. There is no self-government when government rules by decree. There is no constitution to protect fundamental human rights when governments are allowed to execute super-secret, invisible-ink emergency provisions of their charters that magically nullify constitutional protections until the “Build Back Better” boobs give the all-clear. There is nothing democratic about 1% of the population dictating how the other 99% shall live.
Naftali Bennett, Israel’s new prime minister, released a statement last week about mandatory vaccinations that drove this new reality home. “I respect different views,” he claimed, before insisting that “there is a time and a place in which this discussion needs to stop — and it is our very lives.” Personal liberty should be defended, you see, until it must be smothered for the sake of safety.
“The science is unequivocal: The vaccines work,” he declared. Yet somehow vaccinated Israelis are still in danger from those who refuse a jab, a somewhat more equivocal expression of vaccine effectiveness. If these experimental treatments work so well, then those who take them should have nothing to fear from those who refuse. If they do not, then the prime minister and leaders around the world are lying when they declare, “The vaccines work.”
Either science is being ignored or it is being politicized. Yet the same governments that spent over a year covering up the China Virus’s origins by screaming, “Trust the science,” are the same ones screaming for their citizens to duly comply with mandatory vaccinations in the name of science today.
Should we want people to be alive and healthy? Of course. But giving up “essential liberty to gain a little temporary safety,” as Benjamin Franklin famously observed, is a recipe for winding up with neither. Anybody who doubted that wisdom eighteen months ago should have a much keener understanding of it now. If governments are allowed to veto liberty at their discretion in the name of public health, we will be inundated with public health crises birthed from the fiendish imaginations of unscrupulous bureaucrats from here to eternity, and human liberty will die.
Does anyone believe we’re not heading toward future national lockdowns in vain attempts to quell “climate change” or “racial injustice” or “wealth inequality” health crises, too? The world has been under attack from a Chinese Virus, and the world’s governments responded by locking up their citizens and expanding their powers permanently. That’s a little like having the government defend you from gunfire by first shooting you in the foot; one way or another, you’re hobbling away.
It’s just a little prick. Let the government stick you with its needle. What about the next needle, though, or the next one after that? If you are willing to hand to faceless bureaucrats the power to jab you today, do you consent to being jabbed whenever the government says it knows best? Because if there is anything about which governments are certain, it is that they always “know best.”
Can there be anything more intrusive than Big Jabber taking complete control over a person’s health? If not, then why shouldn’t government also intervene in everything else that fills up a person’s life? Why shouldn’t state agents who “know best” also decide where each citizen is allowed to live, what he is allowed to own, whom he is allowed to see, and what he is allowed to think?
Ceding to government the authority to decide what goes into our bodies surely cedes to government the authority to determine everything else we do with those bodies, too. Then the question remaining is this: if killing freedom is the cost of survival, aren’t we just fighting one China Virus by unleashing another?

ANew Witch-Hunt Has Begun –
This Time Of The ‘Unvaccinated’
July 29, 2021 (American Thinker) – In Salem, Massachusetts, there is a memorial to the 20 victims of the witch trials of 1692, bearing the words “God knows I am innocent” cut off to represent the lives cut short and the deafness to their pleas. In Vardø, a village in the Norwegian Arctic, an eternal flame burns to the memory of 91 victims of witchcraft trials between 1601 and 1663.
Traveling around Europe, it would be hard to find a region that was not afflicted with witch hunts. Today we look at this history and shake our heads, wondering how it could have happened, ignoring the signs of the new witch hunt threatening the 21st century.
Take out “unvaccinated” and substitute “witch” and it’s almost a perfect parallel. And it’s terrifying because witch hunts rose in the past out of social crises and lack of education, two factors plaguing America today. According to the CDC, 34,248,054 total cased of COVID have been reported. There have been 607,684 deaths.
That works out to approximately a 98% survival rate. So looking at the unvaccinated as if they are about to unleash a plague that will kill us all can only come of being uneducated about the facts, or ignoring the facts.
Which brings me to the social crisis component. The United States has been suffering from increasing dishonesty from our leaders since this pandemic started. We were overwhelmed with stories in the mainstream media that warned of our impending doom if we didn’t put on masks and shelter in place; we were solemnly told by politicians that there was no hope if we got sick; and highly placed health authorities continually changed the goalposts on everything from masks to treatments to the proper care of our vulnerable elderly.
There has been no solid information that the public can put their trust in, and this insecurity has led to fear. In some people, the fear is so great that they need a target to focus on to relieve their terror.
That focus has fallen on the unvaccinated, and like every witch hunt in the past, the fearful are trying to relieve their fear by taking out their anger on what is frightening them. Never mind that most people are vaccinated and that if the vaccine is safe, the unvaccinated pose no threat. Dismiss the fact that people have the right to decide if they want to take an experimental vaccine that is unapproved by the FDA to protect against a disease that very few people die from.
The important thing to the Covid-19 fearful is that the fear be relieved, and if causing innocent people to suffer relieves fear, it’s worth it. Later, there may be monuments to the victims of unreasonable terror and trials held with spectral evidence, but that does no good to the victims when they are in their graves. This time around, we should shut down the witch hunt before it gets started.
Did you know? Little known facts about COVID-19 jabs, media ‘misinformation’ and Bill Gates
July 15, 2021 (No Jab for Me)
1. Widespread misinformation about the nature of the injection
Injuries and deaths by mRNA jabs keep rising. VAERS reports 41,015 serious injuries as of July 9/21. Yet at vaccine sites, administrators cannot answer the simple question: “What’s in the vaccine?,” while a total of 3.54 billion doses have been distributed worldwide.
Connecticut, in describing the Pfizer and Moderna jabs, commits a crime against humanity with this statement:
“COVID-19 mRNA vaccines provide instructions to cells in our upper arms to make a harmless protein found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.”However, the spike protein is anything but harmless, it doesn’t confine itself in your arm, it accumulates particularly in ovaries and other organs, can penetrate the brain, and it is still undergoing clinical trials. This is a blatant case of misinformation for which Nazi doctors were hung.
This is Vermont’s full, true and plain half-baked disclosure :
“What are the ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccines? How do they work?
The ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccines are similar to what is found in other vaccines. They contain protein, and fats, salts and polysorbate. The mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) also have sugars and polyethylene glycol. They do not have any fetal tissue, pork products, eggs, gelatin, latex, microchips or preservatives in them.”
However, they have a lot more than that, like SM-102 and the inorganic medical device/molecule that messages your cells to produce the pathogen, the spike protein, with no OFF switch.
Pennsylvania’s misinformation is as follows:
“Is natural immunity from the COVID-19 disease better than immunity from the vaccine?
Getting COVID-19 may offer some natural protection, known as immunity. But experts don’t know how long this protection lasts, and the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs any benefits of natural immunity. COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience sickness.”
The JAB can make people very sick, even kill them, and the survival rate from COVID-19 is 99.9%.
Here’s New York’s version of full, true and plain misinformation:
“Will the vaccine give me COVID?
No. None of the vaccines being studied are made up of materials that can cause disease. For example, the first vaccines authorized for emergency use by the FDA use a small, harmless part of the virus’s genetic material called ‘mRNA’. This is not the virus. mRNA vaccines teach your body to create virus proteins. Your immune system develops antibodies against these proteins that will help you fight the virus that causes COVID-19 if you are exposed to it. That is called an immune response.”
According to immunologists who know about the animal studies, first, you are not given the mRNA of any virus; you are given an inorganic molecule (a medical device) that signals your cells to generate the spike protein of the virus. Your body produces the actual pathogen. The jab instructs your body to produce the pathogen that you don’t want to infect you in the first place. There is no OFF switch. The spike protein alone can wreak havoc, as results show. And should you get infected by a wild virus you run the risk of triggering a cytokine storm, as animal studies have shown. You become a ticking time bomb. And you can still get infected by the Covid virus and transmit it to others. The use of the word “harmless” is an egregious crime against humanity.
Here is Nevada’s propaganda:
The COVID-19 vaccines were developed according the rigorous standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Many thousands of people participated in the clinical trials to ensure the vaccines were safe and effective before being offered to the public. The clinical trials included three phases.
Small volunteer group to determine initial safety and potential side effects
Larger volunteer group to determine efficacy and dosage
Very large volunteer group where a portion of the participants receive the vaccine, and the other portion get the placebo to determine efficacy and side effects.”
No mention of the undergoing clinical trials slated to end in 2023 or of the increasing number of adverse events. No mention either of proven therapeutics or of the high COVID-19 survival rates. Since no informed consent is possible, therefore, a crime against humanity has been committed.
By analyzing this chart on the FAQ sites and documents of all 50 states, you should arrive at only one conclusion: All 50 States, including the elected officials and health administrators, are complicit in the greatest crime against humanity, ever.
The inventor of the mRNA Vaccines, Dr. Robert Malone, warns: “People should not be forced to take experimental COVID vaccines because risks aren’t known and under 18s and those who’ve had virus shouldn’t take it.” Dr. Scott Jensen reiterates Malone’s words.
FLASHBACK: New Zealand PM told public ‘we are your single source of truth’
July 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – While Big Tech and even governments are ramping up censorship on issues relating to COVID-19, particularly the experimental injections, resurfaced footage from 2020 hints at the manner in which some governments seek to exercise control over the population and be the “single source of truth.”
The words were uttered by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in what appears to be resurfaced footage from March 19, 2020, when she was commenting on the “conspiracy theories” found on social media with regard to COVID-19 lockdowns.
She began by noting how she had “been watching for some days” on social media channels but was not able to personally “dismiss every single rumor I see on social media, tempted as I might be.”
“You can also trust the Director-General of Health and the Ministry of Health. For that information, do feel free to visit at any time to clarify any rumor you may hear covid19.govt.nz, otherwise dismiss anything else.”
Ardern next revealed that the government and its various appointed ministers would be the harbinger of truth and that New Zealanders were to trust no one else apart from the government.
“We will continue to be your single source of truth,” she said. “We will provide information frequently. We will share everything we can.”
As for that which was not proposed as trustworthy knowledge by the government, Ardern stated that it should be deemed untrustworthy: “Everything else you see – a grain of salt.”
Reporters queried Ardern on what such an example of a conspiracy theory might be, referencing rumors on social media that a COVID-19 related lockdown was imminent, in March 2020. In response, Ardern avoided the specific point but stated that such online messages “add to the anxiety people feel.”
The 40-year-old, far-left Labor Prime Minister was speaking in Rotorua, in New Zealand’s North Island, where she was meeting tourism officials to lay out an economic rescue package.
She urged people to “prepare but do not panic” for potential restrictions.
Referring to online theories, Arden stated, “When you see those messages, remember that unless you hear it from us, it is not the truth,” as she urged people to visit the government’s COVID website.
“We will continue to provide everything you need to know,” she ended.
While ruling out the social media rumors of a lockdown in her comments, which were made on March 20, 2020, Ardern announced a national four-level COVID alert system just one day later. As a result, the country entered a national lockdown on March 25.
“I say to all New Zealanders: the government will do all it can to protect you,” Ardern announced when breaking news of the lockdown. “Now I’m asking you to do everything you can to protect all of us. Kiwis – go home.”
Then on May 13, 2020, the government hastily passed the “Covid-19 Public Health Response Bill” that would allow police to conduct searches of private property without a warrant if it was believed that people were breaching COVID restrictions.
While Ardern slated people for spreading rumors of a lockdown in early 2020, her COVID-19 Response Minister recently suggested that the government would actually have to “go out and find” any New Zealanders who were unvaccinated.
“Early next year we’ll be in the phase of chasing up people who haven’t come forward to get their vaccination or who have missed their bookings and so on,” the Hon. Chris Hipkins, MP, declared.
As footage of Ardern’s comments has re-emerged in recent days, she has received considerable backlash. One person described her as a “full-blown psychotic dictator,” and another quipped that the message was “right out of 1984.”
Indeed, Ardern’s words seemed to echo comments made earlier this year in an op-ed in The New York Times that called for Joe Biden to appoint a “reality czar” in order to “tackle disinformation and domestic extremism” with particular reference to election fraud and information about COVID-19. The article declared that America was undergoing a “reality crisis” in which “disinformation and domestic extremism” were spreading rapidly.
Raheem Kassim, the editor-in-chief of the National Pulse, responded to the news with a simple tweet, comparing the reality czar to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984.”
“Ah, the Ministry of Truth,” he tweeted. “I’ve been waiting for this one.”
July 14, 2021– One step forward, two steps back. That’s how the culture wars sometimes feel these days. Last week I was pleased to write about a Supreme Court decision that protected the right of a Catholic adoption agency to abide by Catholic beliefs in only adopting children into families with a mother and a father.
This week, I have to tell you about a troubling (non)decision by the Supreme Court. In a notice a few days ago, the Supreme Court said it would not consider an appeal of a lower court ruling that found that a biological girl, Gavin Grimm, has a constitutional right to use the boys’ bathrooms at her high school. Only two of the court’s justices, Justices Alito and Thomas, dissented and said they would hear the case.
Grimm claims to be “transgender.” In 2016, a district court judge ruled in her favor after she took her school board to court for refusing to allow her to use the boys’ restrooms. After this, the board appealed. But ultimately the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Grimm’s favor as well.
By refusing to hear the case, the Supreme Court is allowing the lower court ruling to stand. For now, the precedent will only apply to the portion of the country that falls under the jurisdiction of the Circuit court.
But what this means, is that in those states boys (who say they are girls) can use the girls’ bathroom, and girls (who say they are boys) can use the boys’ bathroom. And nobody can stop them. Not even the parents of girls in the school who are worried about biological males having access to their daughters’ restrooms and change-rooms, and vice-versa. Not even the girls themselves. Because this is now the transgender students’ “constitutional right.”
“But what,” you might ask, “about the right to privacy of the students who do not want to be in private spaces with members of the opposite sex?”
Well, it seems that right is now trumped by a set of newly minted, radical rights, predicated upon a bizarre and anti-scientific ideology invented the equivalent of an historical second ago, and which applies only to a tiny subset of the population.
Men Invading Women’s Sports
As I have said many times, transgenderism is not a victimless ideology. You will hear transgender ideologues constantly claiming that they are the ones who are in favor of “tolerance” and “inclusion” and “compassion,” and all sorts of other such soothing-sounding words.
Unfortunately, far too many people seem to be willing to take them at their word.
However, even the briefest examination of the practical impacts of transgender ideology shows that it leaves a track of victims in its wake — who are, more often than not, women.
In a growing number of cases, for example, women are losing out on opportunities for which they have worked and sacrificed enormously, simply because a man decided that he felt like a woman and took what was rightfully the woman’s.
Consider this recent op-ed in USA Today, in which one young woman, Chelsea Mitchell, a star track and field runner, explains what the invasion of girls’ sports by boys has done to her and her fellow female athletes:
“I’ve lost four women’s state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to transgender runners. I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two transgender runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again.
“That’s a devastating experience. It tells me that I’m not good enough; that my body isn’t good enough; and that no matter how hard I work, I am unlikely to succeed, because I’m a woman.”
Mitchell notes that the state of Connecticut’s decision to allow transgender athletes had a devastating impact on female athletes, after just two biological males began running as women.
“In the 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons alone, these runners took 15 women’s state track championship titles (titles held in 2016 by nine different girls) and more than 85 opportunities to participate in higher level competitions that belonged to female track athletes,” she wrote. (Chillingly, even after publication, USA Today edited Mitchell’s artic
le to remove references to the “transgender” competitors as “male” — an accurate biological fact — because it was “hurtful.” The excerpt above is from USA Today’s version. Here is what Mitchell originally said:
(“I’ve lost four women’s state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to male runners. I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two male runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again.
(“That’s a devastating experience. It tells me that I’m not good enough; that my body isn’t good enough; and that no matter how hard I work, I am unlikely to succeed, because I’m a woman.
(“That experience is why three of my fellow female athletes and I filed a lawsuit last year with Alliance Defending Freedom against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference [CIAC]: because girls and women shouldn’t be stripped of their right to fair competition.”) Mitchell’s experience is only the tip of the iceberg. Transgenderism is sweeping the world of women’s sports right now, reaching all the way to the most elite levels. A few days ago, we learned that a man would be permitted to compete in the women’s division in weightlifting at the Olympics.
“Laurel” Hubbard is a 43-year-old weightlifter, who only “transitioned” in 2013. In other words, Hubbard had thirty-five years in which he lived as a man, with all the male traits like higher bone mass, muscle density, and testosterone levels that produce enormous physical advantages. Hubbard now takes testosterone-blocking drugs. But it is obvious to anyone with an ounce of common sense that no amount of hormone “therapy” will alter the other natural advantages that he has by virtue of his biological sex.
But perhaps the most bizarre story in recent days is that of transgender “beauty queen” Kataluna Enriquez — a man who just won the Miss Nevada beauty pageant. In November, he will compete for the Miss USA title. So now, it seems men are winning awards for . . . being better than women in beauty pageants!
The fact that women are losing athletic or beauty competitions may not sound all that terrible in the grand scheme of things. But you have to keep in mind that in many cases these women’s futures are riding on their athletic performance. Girls are losing out on valuable scholarships, sponsorships, careers, and the rightful honor due to their labors, because of this bizarre ideology.
More Serious Harms
However, there are also more sinister impacts of transgenderism that we are not taking seriously enough.
As the recent Supreme Court decision shows, women are losing basic rights to privacy, dignity, and safety. Consider for instance this deeply disturbing recent incident, in which a man claiming to be transgender entered a women’s change room at a fitness club, and then exposed his genitalia to the women and girls in the facility.
When one of the women complained to the facility’s staff, they defended the man, saying that he had a right to be there because of his “gender identity”!
One of the most egregious instances I have ever come across, however, is that of the rape crisis center in British Columbia, Canada that lost its government funding because it would not offer its services to men who say they are women.
I have mentioned this case before, but I repeat it here because to me it shows, more than any other story I’ve come across, the extremes to which transgender ideologues are willing to go. Even raped women, victims of horrific crimes perpetrated by men, no longer have the right to seek healing and safety in a women-only space.
Even there, they have to worry about the possibility of a man invading their most private spaces . . . all in the name of “tolerance,” of course! Then, of course, there are the harms to transgender individuals themselves. Despite the whitewashed version of transgenderism peddled by so much of the media and entertainment industry, the process of gender “transitioning” is one fraught with all sorts of physical and psychological perils.
As Jonathon van Maren documents in a recent column, the medical risks of transitioning are extensive and underplayed. Many of the details of how doctors make men look like women, and women like men, are simply too macabre to discuss here. But while the process of carving up and medicating the body to present as the opposite sex may (sometimes) create a somewhat convincing similitude, in the end the interventions are a form of violence and the transgender individual’s body knows it and reacts against it.
The Madness Threatens Our Freedoms
This sudden rise of transgenderism is a kind of cultural hysteria or madness. What else are we supposed to call it when Biden’s secretary of education, Miguel Cardona, refused to answer one of the simplest questions ever posed to a public official — how many genders are there?
In a recent exchange with Cardona, Cong. Mary Miller (R., Illinois) highlighted a recent Biden administration handout called “Confronting Anti-LGBTQI+ Harassment in Schools.” At one point the handout lists as an example of harassment: “A teacher telling students that there are only two genders, boys and girls.”
“Before we start penalizing teachers stating a genetic and biological fact about genders, can you please clarify for the committee how many genders there are?” asked Cong. Miller.
Cardona, however, refused to answer, despite being asked multiple times.
As pro-family writer Doug Mainwaring notes, Facebook offers users the option of 58 different genders, Healthline.com claims that there are 64, and the BBC has said there are as many as 100. “No wonder Democrats are confused,” he quipped.
In the column I mentioned above, Jonathon Van Maren wrote: “This is a movement driven by mental illness and mutilation, and young people are signing up for it in droves. We must keep this ideology away from our children and out of our schools — the damage that it inflicts on young people is incalculable and irreversible.” I couldn’t agree more.
It won’t suffice simply to privately dissent, or even to point out the dangers of this ideology. We must fight back. Otherwise, we will all be caught up in its snare.
In a recent column, one priest recounts receiving a phone call from a distraught attorney. The attorney, who works for the government, was being asked to process a “sex change” order for a 17-year-old who was being raised by a same-sex couple. The teen is a boy but is now “transitioning” to a girl. The attorney ultimately told Fr. Orsi that he could not in conscience process the order, and that he was willing to risk his job to refuse to do so.
The further this transgender madness spreads, the more and more people will be faced with similar ethical dilemmas. Some will suffer the consequences of not going along with the spirit of the world.
Others, however, will compromise with their consciences. Often, their reasons for doing so will be seemingly good ones — to protect their livelihoods and their families. However, the simple fact is, the more people who stand up and say “no,” the easier it will be for others to do the same. Every counter-revolution begins with one person standing fast, and saying, “No!”
I hope you will join me in saying “no,” in whatever way makes sense in your personal circumstances. Pray for the courage to resist. Pray for those who are transgender, that they might find healing and peace.
Pray for priests, bishops, and cardinals, that they may courageously speak out against this harmful agenda. And pray for those who are peddling this ideological poison, that they might see the damage they are doing to many vulnerable people, and to our culture.

A horrifying look at how transgenderism butchers people’s bodies – and the language we use
June 30, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – As the transgender movement pushes the transformation of society, very few fields have been left untouched. The medical field, however, has faced the greatest number of challenges. Trans activists are demanding accommodation far beyond “transition” – or “gender affirmation surgery,” as they prefer it. Language is as important to trans activists as treatments. Verbal recognition of their chosen identities is the social affirmation they crave, which is why we’ve seen the media, politicians, academics, and celebrities obediently fall into line and people’s “preferred pronouns” pop up on social media like mushrooms after rain.
As such, Brooklyn-based freelance writer James Factora, who goes by the pronouns “they/them” (and thus presumably identifies as “non-binary”) and has contributed to publications such as VICE and Teen Vogue, has written “A Guide to Primary Care for Transgender Patients” for a publication called The Paper Gown. The Paper Gown is produced by ZocDoc, which is an online doctor appointment scheduling service.
Trans patients, Factora writes, are likely to face discrimination and thus need to “establish relationships with trans-affirming doctors” who can go beyond simply prescribing hormones and ushering the patient along on the path to transition.
As you might have guessed, “trans-affirming doctors” are doctors who know “the vocabulary to properly discuss their gender identity.” As the trans culture wars increasingly play out on the battlefield of language, how one speaks is of the essence. Factora, unsurprisingly, recommends Planned Parenthood, which has become America’s second-largest supplier of hormones to people struggling with their gender identity.
There have been many issues in the past several years where someone’s sex makes a real difference to the care they are provided, as there are distinct differences between male and female bodies – including a tragic incident in which a baby died because a pregnant woman presenting as male was misdiagnosed as an obese man. But Factora notes that while someone’s “assigned sex at birth” can be “relevant to … primary care needs,” approaching this issue is a difficult one. An excerpt:
While this can be an uncomfortable topic for many trans people, Goldstein says that providers often “use the question of sex assigned at birth” as shorthand for asking what organs you have.
In other words, Kumar says, when it comes to primary care, physicians are “really thinking about the organ system that’s involved,” whether that’s the cardiovascular system, reproductive system or whatever else might need attention. “There are some parts of your body that are going to be affected by hormones or surgery,” he says. “Some of those things may vary person to person, so it’s important for your provider to know what body parts you have or don’t have.”
Biological females who identify as male, for example, should still “be screened regularly for breast or chest cancer,” but “there’s not much data on screening for cancer in transitioning people.” Unspoken is the fact that this is because the wave of people identifying as transgender is very recent, as is the exploding number of people taking hormone therapy and embarking on sex changes. This is very much a medical experiment on a social scale, and we know almost nothing about what the long-term effects are.
Factora implicitly admits as much, quoting one expert as saying that “you have to keep track of what parts are there and what parts aren’t. If the parts are still in your body, then you have to screen them.” He also notes that “estrogen can increase your risk of getting lung cancer and blood clots,” which is not something he’ll hear many trans activists admitting as they insist these treatments are life-saving. There are also sometimes issues with “tucking,” which refers to the process of hiding the penis between the legs in order to better “pass” as female:
Kumar says that when tucking habits are causing an increased amount of pain, itching, redness or other skin changes, it can be a cause for concern. “Exploring some of those alternatives can be helpful,” he says. “If there’s breaks that folks can take, perhaps at nighttime or when they’re not out, if that’s comfortable for them, that’s something that can help the skin breathe.” If you have had bottom surgery, Estvold recommends pursuing gynecological care six months to a year after surgery. Goldstein recommends a visual examination of the vagina once a year to check for skin cancer, regardless of what tissues were used in the surgery.
“All of those techniques are so new that we don’t know if there are any implications for health screenings,” she says. “No matter how the vagina was constructed, the visual [examination] is really the most important.”
In short: In turns out that attempting to “reconstruct your body” has real-world implications. Sex change surgeries don’t actually change your sex, they just turn you into a life-long medical patient. Females identifying as male who practice “binding” – wearing a chest wrap to flatten the breasts and pass as male – need to be monitored as this practice can be very physically damaging.
And there’s more:
Testosterone can increase your red blood cell count, which can heighten your risk for negative health outcomes, including blood clots. Also, some evidence suggests testosterone can alter cholesterol levels. Because of this, Estvold tests his transmasculine patients’ blood to make sure their levels are within the normal range, while also encouraging healthy lifestyle choices to reduce the risks of cholesterol problems.
In other words, transition comes with all sorts of risks that the mainstream media almost entirely ignores in its coverage of the issue. Authors and academics who bring up these risks are invariably accused of being transphobes, but the reality is that these are tremendously dangerous procedures.
But by far the most disturbing part of all of this has to do with sex. Read on at your own risk – I include this excerpt here only to highlight how brutal and extensive the surgical destruction really is:
“I think trans folks should be forthcoming with their medical providers about how they’re having sex,” says Goldstein. While she didn’t always ask patients how they prefer to have sex, it’s something she always asks now when patients are starting hormones. “For people who are on feminizing regimens, we dose the medications a little bit differently if they still want to be able to get an erection,” she says. “So it has all sorts of implications for care.”
If you’re a trans woman who’s had bottom surgery and has vaginal sex, Estvold says, “It’s important to make sure that the vaginal tissue is still healthy, and not dried out or infected in any sort of way, especially if you’re using your new vagina for penetration and sexual intercourse.”
As for trans men, testosterone can cause what is clinically referred to as vaginal atrophy. However, Goldstein likes to avoid this alienating language, and describes the phenomenon as akin to “symptoms of a UTI, like burning and irritation, without any bacteria in the urine.” If you’re a transmasculine person who has receptive sex in his front hole, Kumar recommends using water or silicone-based lubricant. This can also be remedied with topical estrogen applied locally, which can come in the form of creams, gels or tablets that can be inserted with an applicator.
Women getting erections? Men having a “front hole”? This is a movement driven by mental illness and mutilation, and young people are signing up for it in droves. We must keep this ideology away from our children and out of our schools – the damage that it inflicts on young people is incalculable and irreversible.
For people interested in learning more about this movement in order to understand it better, I wrote an article listing four books that will assist you in that. I’ve also had a number of excellent guests on my LifeSiteNews podcast, including Abigail Shrier, the author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. I wish that articles like this one weren’t necessary, but the reality is that these people are no longer fringe. Governments are marching to their tune, and the time to educate ourselves and resist is now.
COVID idolatry and magic have become the governing factors in our response to reality
We are currently prone specifically to the Idols of the Marketplace, which refer to proclaimed opinions that are ephemeral or manifestly not sensible, given the available evidence; and to the Idols of the Theatre, which refer to belief in groundless scientific theories and presumed facts in the absence of valid empirical confirmation.
July 7, 2021 (The Pipeline) – News reports inform us that COVID cases are rising exponentially, particularly in the U.K., which has reportedly enjoyed the most successful vaccine rollout on record thus far, with about 85 percent of the population receiving a first dose and 62 percent receiving two. Yet no connection is made between a massive vaccination program intended to reduce or prevent the spread of infections and the fact that cases are said to be skyrocketing. The vaccines are extravagantly touted as reliable antitoxins; at the same time the disease apparently continues to surf from wave to wave and variant to variant.
Meanwhile, as Matt Margolis at PJ Media reports, the World Health Organization has stipulated that fully vaccinated people should keep wearing face masks and practicing social distancing in order to prevent new variants of COVID-19 “even though Covid deaths have not surged.” Cases are up, fatalities down, which latter may be owing to the gradual acquisition of natural herd immunity. (The rash of new cases may be partially attributable to the kernel choice of high test cycles, which will often reflect residual genetic material, such as junk or dead virus, rather than a peak in viral infections.)
Despite these odd discrepancies in recommendations, we are still counseled that the vaccines work, which does not prevent the authorities from declaring that the disease is spiking. The two obvious reasons for this contradiction are never mentioned or even recognized:
The vaccines are ineffective, mere panaceas. The limited trials were flawed as nobody was exposed to the virus during the relevant studies; indeed, the actual numbers show there is no such thing as a miraculous vaccine. Pfizer math purporting trial success rates has been shown to be radically unconvincing if not deceptive. In any event, whether the vaccines are effective or not, they are clearly not safe. Adverse symptoms will routinely be blamed on “anxiety” or some other emotional reaction, or some pre-existent medical condition. As Stacey Lennox writes discussing traumas of this nature and the staple explanations adduced by professionals, “There are no words strong enough to describe how cynical and dismissive these medical providers are.”
The surge in “cases,” predictably assigned to the always timely arrival of new mutations, may be the result, as dependable sources have claimed, of the vaccines themselves via a condition known as antibody-dependent enhancement. Prominent French virologist and Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier, the bête noir of the leftist establishment, contends that mass vaccinations are “an unacceptable mistake… they are creating the variants.” The virus is cleverly adaptive and will find a way to circumvent the vaccines or, as noted, even use the vaccines to aid in adopting new forms. Similarly, the top-tier medical journal Vaccine has warned that the vaccines may exacerbate rather than attenuate viral infections, and remains skeptical of their viability. Additionally, previously infected persons who have been vaccinated, warns Pennsylvania immunologist Hooman Noorchashm, could suffer a “re-ignited critical inflammatory disease or blood clotting complications.”
Not to be denied, the media and official organizations will argue that growing case numbers are attributed to the stubborn resistance of a minority cohort of anti-vaxxers. The W.H.O has even now called the unvaccinated “Covid variant factories” who may prolong the pandemic, an assumption there is no way of proving but which is obviously intended to lay the groundwork for future vaxxports. Moreover, given the vast numbers of vaccinated people who are or should be immune and the fact that young and healthy people are naturally resistant to serious complications, the assumption is highly implausible. Nonetheless, the conjurations and hexings proceed apace. The shamans and medicine men have spoken.
The palpable fact is that the vaccinated, who are now presumably shielded, should have no fear of the unvaccinated. It doesn’t seem to matter. I have met many of the jabbed who diligently avoid those who have demurred – even close relatives – though if the vaccines they swear by were potent, they should clearly have acquired immunity and be assured of their security. They are confident, yet frightened, a perfect instance of cognitive dissonance of which they remain unaware.
And there’s the rub. Such people are not governed by reason but by a species of magical thinking, a kind of voodoo conviction. Despite whatever inner tremors they feel or doubts they may have struggled to suppress, they insist on the soundness of the vaccines and rush to the inoculation booths. These confections are like magical elixirs, bunches of dill or lavender laid at the door to keep out demonic beings, or talismans affixed to the lintel to ward off the angel of contagion.
If the sorcery doesn’t work, it could only have been improperly invoked or may demand a more powerful form of juju. After all, the signs and portents are everywhere. Time for a booster, and then another, ad infinitum. The U.K. has already announced a third jab for vulnerable populations to be offered beginning in September. Johnson & Johnson may require annual vaccine shots—even though longitudinal studies are years from completion and the vaccines remain in the experimental stage.
We are an advanced society, a highly civilized and increasingly secular people. On the surface this is true, but in essence we are as primitive and credulous as our stone age ancestors. Magic, not reason, remains the psychological default. Amulets and incantations will keep us safe, our tribal elders are repositories of arcane wisdom, our witch doctors are acknowledged to be clinically infallible, and the practice of exorcism will banish the evil spirit that has possessed us. A passion for the occult supersedes the reliance on reason and common sense.
As Amelia Janaski observes in the American Institute for Economic Research, in regard to the issue of “excess deaths” owing to bungled COVID policy responses, “epidemiological models have largely failed to predict real-world outcomes…plans often end up based on a pretense of knowledge rather than real-world evidence or understanding.” This is certainly true not only with respect to mask mandates and periodic lockdowns but equally to what has become a therapeutic obsession, to wit, the prevalent vaccine cult and fetish. We believe in the enchantment of “models” and the charm of cryptic statistical artifacts the way we believe in the apotropaic force of totems and idols. Vaccinology carries the day.
We might say that we are idol worshippers, votaries of Francis Bacon’s four Idols of false reasoning and superstition, laid out in the Novum Organum: the Idols of the Tribe, The Cave, the Marketplace and the Theater. We are currently prone specifically to the Idols of the Marketplace, which refer to proclaimed opinions that are ephemeral or manifestly not sensible, given the available evidence; and to the Idols of the Theatre, which refer to belief in groundless scientific theories and presumed facts in the absence of valid empirical confirmation.
Proneness to idolatry is par for the human condition, as is the susceptibility to magical thinking. But in the present age and, especially, in the “COVID moment,” idolatry and magic have become psychological vectors that govern our response to the real world. And, as always, and to our detriment, reality will have the last word.
Something very interesting happened in regards to my website. Until just recently, I had never added tags to any of my posts or pages. I decided to do so, and went through and added multiple tags to each post and page. Strangely enough, after I did so, for about the next 10 days, I had absolutely no visitors to my site. Zero. After much thought, I correlated the adding of tags to the cessation of traffic to my site. After realizing this, I went through and deleted all of the tags, which was not a quick process. Within 12 hours, I began to have visitors again. Coincidence? Not likely. I believe, although I have no definitive proof, that my site was being filtered out or demoted. My followers would have been notified of new posts, yet none visited during those 10 days. Somehow, persons were finding me prior to the adding of tags, so I will never use them again. They, apparently, can be used as a basis for cancellation of free speech that does not coincide with the political rhetoric and agenda of the current regime, billionaires, big tech, pharma, social media giants and the mainstream media. My encouragement is the same…..do your own research! Do not blindly trust anyone without verifying the info, especially those in authority, or who have any power, over your life. They have only their best interest at heart in all actions, words and plans. And, if what is in your best interest conflicts with theirs, you will lose every time. Finally, follow the money and gain in power! That will lead you to who has the motive to lie to, punish and cancel you.
The corrupting influence of modern sex education is causing widespread sexual abuse among school children
Schools have gone to enormous lengths to break down children’s natural sexual reserve and have handed potential rapists a new and powerful arsenal of psychological techniques they can use to put pressure on their victims.
June 29, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Anyone who to wants to be thoroughly depressed and dis-edified can read victims’ testimonies of sexual abuse in UK schools, on the website Everyone’s Invited. I’m not providing a live link because the content can be quite graphic, but it is not difficult to find. One distinctive aspect of the website is that it has attracted testimonials from elite, independent (fee-paying) schools, and elite universities. Up until now those of us interested in these matters have been looking at reports into schools at the other end of the spectrum of privilege. It has apparently come as a surprise to some that the abuse of schoolchildren by each other is not limited to drug-addled delinquents from broken homes in public housing projects. No, it goes all the way up the social hierarchy: along with the drugs and the broken homes.
There has always been a problem of bullying at elite boarding schools, and when historic boys’ schools started admitting girls in about the 1980s, the results were entirely predictable. It is difficult to understand how anyone remotely concerned with children’s welfare, rather than educational fads and profit-margins, could have thought it was a good idea. I remember when a major Catholic boarding school went co-educational, there was endless talk about the exciting educational opportunities, how they’d have mixed-voice choirs and girls playing the female parts in plays, and all the rest. Then a senior member of the management admitted in private: “If we’re honest, we did it for the money.”
The toxic environment which has led to what is clearly endemic sexual abuse in many schools is not simply a matter of having boys and girls together in the same institution, however. Schools, again acting on the fads which seem to act as a substitute for common-sense in parts of the education sector, have gone to enormous lengths to break down children’s natural sexual reserve. The idea that some kinds of sexual behavior are objectively inappropriate is something which must never be said in a classroom. Everything — even things which are actually illegal or immediately physically harmful — is morally acceptable, children are repeatedly told, if there is consent. Not to think so is an indication not of emotional maturity or sexual integrity, but at best of being inhibited, and probably of bigotry as well. After all, how can you respect others’ choices, if you have any sense of sexual standards for yourself?
What this means is that while the official message is that everyone has the right to say “no”, saying “no” is the mark of being uncool or actually a bad person. Schools have handed potential rapists a new and powerful arsenal of psychological techniques they can use to put pressure on their victims.
Of course, few teachers believe this message themselves: in its implications, it is an extreme form of sexual libertinism incompatible with long-term relationships and family life. What they actually think of the child-victims of the intense social pressure to agree to sexual acts is revealing. One testimony on Everyone’s Invited described how when boys shared nude photos of the girls with each other, it was the girls who were blamed from creating the images in the first place, at the insistence of their boyfriends. In response to another testimony, by a girl who was abused at parties, headteacher Tim Gibbs of a school in Norfolk in the east of England told a local newspaper: It’s horrible to hear that she has put herself in such a vulnerable position at these ‘parties’ time and time again and I expect she will be upset by it for a very long time.
There is any eerie parallel with the attitude of police and social workers to the girls abused by the U.K.’s rape gangs. Oh dear, they said: these girls are making really terrible decisions. Remarks such as these sit at the uneasy interface between the official view, that no decision made with consent can be criticized, and what they really think, which is that in the often-terrible suffering, and sometimes deaths, of these young women, they are reaping the consequences of slatternly behavior.
Anyone with a real concern for children’s welfare would say that, on the one hand, their supposed consent is very frequently itself extorted by coercive bullying, and on the other, the school is responsible for facilitating the culture in which this bullying has traction. It is not just that the boys expect (say) all the new girls to perform sexual acts if they don’t want to be completely ostracized, but that in many schools every department — English literature, science, geography, religious education — is devoted to conveying the message to pupils that sexual restraint is tantamount to a mental illness.
Former FOX reporter says media, WHO are covering up reports about effectiveness of Ivermectin, HCQ to treat coronavirus
YouTube bans videos that discuss Ivermectin as a possible coronavirus treatment.
June 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The mainstream media are suppressing information about the effectiveness of Ivermectin as a treatment for the coronavirus, according to a former reporter for a FOX affiliate.
Ivory Hecker said that FOX censored her when she tried to report on Ivermectin’s effectiveness. She posted a video recently that appeared to include footage from 2020 that her employer did not air.
Dr. Joseph Varon is referred to as the “COVID Hunter.” He’s made hundreds of media appearances on news stations in the United States and internationally.
He’s also been widely successful in treating COVID because he’s used drugs including Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat COVID.
“Almost every outlet has failed to note,” said Hecker, that Varon’s use of the drugs has helped him achieve a low death rate for patients he treats in hospitals.
Hecker’s coverage has reportedly drawn the ire of government officials but the praise of others.
“American newsrooms actively avoid this [world-] changing, life and death story. Ivermectin hides in plain sight as bureaucrats fumble for excuses not to use cheap repurposed medicines that work. How’s it possible?” Bret Weinstein wrote on Twitter.
HCQ, which is cheap and widely available, is a drug used to treat malaria, lupus, and arthritis.
“Research published by medRxiv this week found that hydroxychloroquine, when paired with azithromycin, could increase the coronavirus survival rate by nearly 200% in ventilated patients who have a severe version of COVID-19,” the Washington Examiner reported June 11.
“A few months later, the Henry Ford Health System published a study that showed hydroxychloroquine helped its severely ill coronavirus patients recover,” the news outlet reported.
By Matt Lamb
Britain’s best-known medical journal, The Lancet, also noted that the absolute risk reduction (ARR) of the best-known COVID-19 jabs is only 1·3% for the AstraZeneca, 1·2% for the Moderna, 1·2% for the Johnson & Johnson, and 0·84% for the Pfizer shots.
Reports: Manpower, supply shortages hampering economic rebound as pandemic recedes
Absence of many workers is creating service crunch, supply issues.
May 12, 2021 (Americasvoice) Shortages of both manpower and supplies — the latter in some cases brought about by the former — are hindering U.S. economic recovery as the pandemic recedes.
Hospitality industries such as restaurants, hotels and theme parks are “finding themselves squeezed from multiple sides,” the Wall Street Journal reported this week, citing “rising costs, worker shortages, unpredictable supplies of some foods and, in some cases, demand so overwhelming it’s difficult to avoid leaving customers dissatisfied.”
Some businesses have resorted to incentives such as higher pay and other benefits to lure employees back to work.
In other cases, the issue is becoming painfully apparent: Localized gas shortages are being reported in some parts of the country due not to the gas supply but to a shortage of truckers able to transport it.
Reports from Ohio to Colorado and several other states show gas stations being forced to temporarily close down their pumps due to an inability to get more gas delivered to their reserve tanks.
“The problem is there are not enough drivers to drive the tanker trucks,” one truck driving school owner told media. “As the public is starting to come out of COVID particularly going into summer, there are expectations of a lot of people driving and about 25% of the tanker trucks are going to sit idle because there’s not enough drivers to drive them.”
I wish to thank my new followers. I was taken aback when I got my first international visitor. I expected only those in the United States.
The purpose of my website is to bring to the forefront information that is impossible to gain from the mainstream media of CNN, MSNBC, and local network channels, etc. For all intents and purposes, those entities are propaganda arms since they do not tell their viewers all the news, nor everything about a news-worthy topic, but only that which they wish their viewers to know; therefore, the ignorance around the political and social issues we now face as a nation is mind-boggling. I am only one person, and I have not been too successful in enlightening others, not even those closest to me, but that doesn’t mean that I will stop trying. What they refuse to give me credit for is the thousands of hours I have spent since May 2020 reading nearly everything. I did not begin my “research” with any particular opinion about the matters at hand, but I have come to see how corrupt those in authority can be when it is to their benefit either monetarily or power-wise. The lies that have been and are still being told devastate me; but, even more so, is the fact that the vast majority of persons believe what they hear without seeking verification. Many assume that all or even most government and political figures, clergy and corporations, etc. care about them individually and have their best interest at heart. I can assure you, they do not. It would take thousands of words just to list the number of lies that have been told just by those Americans in positions in which to make their views known, let alone those internationally. I’m talking about just a list, not including expounding on each item.
I feel great sorrow at the decline of the U.S.A., since, when it comes to freedom, if America “falls” where else is there to go? Those who have escaped Communist countries are even more fearful than I am because they have experienced the horror of such regimes. That is frightening because I am pretty scared. I can stand up and proclaim the truth in my own little corner of the world, but not much further because, unlike those who have the world’s microphone at their fingertips, I am nobody.
My main suggestion to all the people of the world is to do your own research. Do not believe anything that comes out of the mouth of a politician, government agency, big tech, social media, corporations, billionaires or anyone who you know has lied to you before, like a certain member of a U.S. health agency. And then, when you have determined the truth, even if it contradicts your prior knowledge, even if it contradicts what you would rather it was, proclaim it in your own corner of the world followed by “Pass it on” to those who are willing to face the truth no matter how discouraging, abhorrent or contrary to their sincerely held beliefs.
Blessings to all. I wish and pray that the good and noble among you have the courage to be publicly good and noble. If you cannot, believe me, I understand; but, when it no longer matters if you stand up tall and proclaim the truth, do me a favor, please be quiet, because speaking then is like ignoring the pleas of a loved one for help, but making sure to send flowers to their funeral. The time is NOW, not when the action is useless. Thank you.
June 17, 2021 (The Wanderer) Clueless Joe Biden probably couldn’t hurt himself any worse than to force groups of hundreds of illegal immigrants right into U.S. neighborhoods, but that’s what he chose to do. No longer is his border scandal many hundreds of miles away from aggrieved voters, but right in their faces on their streets, close to their snack stops, or next to their kids’ high school.
The Phoenix metropolitan area, like other places, has seen Biden’s gang start commandeering local hotels to provide free housing for recent illegal entrants before transporting them, also for free (except to U.S. taxpayers), across the nation. Maybe to your hometown. (See the June 10 hardcopy issue of The Wanderer, page 1.)
The AZ Free News website reported that the rambling three-story Homewood Suites in suburban north Scottsdale that reportedly has more than 1,200 beds was answering the phone now as “The Suites on Scottsdale.” The federal government suddenly started filling it with hundreds of entrants at the end of May on the main north-south drag of Scottsdale Road.
Reporter Corinne Murdock wrote: “ICE spokespersons didn’t tell AZ Free News why the surrounding communities weren’t given advance notice of the shelter being established. They also didn’t answer our question regarding how many other similar migrant hotels were established in the area.
However, ICE did tell Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) that they’d established similar shelters in Chandler and Phoenix.”
Murdock wrote that the hotel website says its rooms are “‘Not Available’ for the rest of the year.”
Local residents Lisa and John Seger joined two large, peaceful demonstrations against the federal action outside the hotel during the first week of June. Crowd estimates in local media ranged from 600 to 1,000 people.
John told The Wanderer on June 6 that as a Christian, he “point(s) to God for His guiding us to seek truth and to demonstrate His love in our request for justice. I feel the joy-filled conduct of the hundreds gathered as virtual strangers during these two peaceful protests prove this fact. We hold no anger towards those who in their heart of hearts are seeking what is best for their families; we only ask that our nation’s immigration laws are obeyed.”
In a June 1 statement, the City of Scottsdale said it “has no responsibility or oversight” over what the federal government decides to do on immigration issues.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, told KFYI radio (550 AM) on June 3 that everyone knows, if you’re looking for an economical hotel, you don’t go to upscale Scottsdale.
Brnovich said that Biden won’t let alien felons be deported, nor will he let deportation orders be enforced against [illegal] aliens.
Given Biden’s aim to resurrect the plans of his marionette master, Barack Obama, to attack single-family suburban housing under the title of “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing,” one can only wonder if this temporary free-housing manipulation of a foreign invasion nicely fits the strategy.
The Washington Examiner posted on June 3 that under his infrastructure plan, Biden pushes local governments to allow apartment buildings in neighborhoods restricted to single-family homes, which, critics say, “would change the landscape of towns and cities across the country and torpedo the American dream.”
The Examiner quoted former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey that hypocrite Biden “has always had a passion for stately homes and swanky addresses,” living at spacious, wealthy properties in no danger of rubbing up against public housing. And that was before he entered the White House.
Hardly helping border tensions for U.S. voters is Biden’s clownishly laughing vice president, Kamala Harris, who flew high over the U.S. border, visited Guatemala on June 7 and told NBC television anchor Lester Holt: “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border” when everyone including Holt knew she had not during the crisis.
Desperately trying to avoid the fact that Biden’s own proclaimed policies are responsible for the border surge, Harris tried other explanations like climate change. However, only a day earlier Guatemala’s own president, Alejandro Giammattei, said that when Biden took office, the policies changed, and “The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”
Conservative Cong. Lauren Boebert (R., Colo.) had some fun by carrying a life-size cardboard Kamala to an incomplete Texas border fence. Boebert faced the prop toward Mexico and advised the stiff paper to look at “what you’ve done.”
Commentator Kyle Smith posted at the New York Post on June 8 that rather than honoring his feminist vice president, Joe Biden, like many men in trouble, threw this sacrificial lamb under the bus by tasking her as his border czar for the chaos he personally created.
As a side note, a person need only recall that Kamala used to be a California rather than national politician. Is it really possible that she never maybe made a little jaunt southward from San Diego to “TJ” — Tijuana? Eating dinner at the northern edge of Mexico isn’t the same as seeing coyotes abandon toddlers in the desert, but it technically would qualify as visiting the border.
Phoenix radio talk host Seth Leibsohn (KKNT, 960 AM) told The Wanderer on June 8 that it was a little late for Harris to start telling illegal immigrants now to stay away from the U.S. He said, “The border crisis is an obviously manufactured series of events that were unnecessary and rest solely with the statements and decisions of the Biden administration.
“When the president of Guatemala lectures the vice president on this point and the vice president’s only strategy — presumably being developed over the past three months — is to beg contumacious citizens in other countries not to leave their country for the U.S., you have made yourself the arsonist of a five-alarm fire,” Leibsohn said.
“And it won’t do to blame other countries, other administrations, or earthquakes and hurricanes,” he added. “You can care about America and Americans or you can prioritize others. When you think this country and your fellow countrymen are not and never were that great, it becomes ever easier to become ever softer on America while distracting people with wills-o’-the-wisp elsewhere.”
A Crime Family
Mary Ann Kreitzer, who runs Les Femmes — The Truth, a Catholic blog, noted the greater concern Biden’s administration has for illegal immigrants than for the United States’ own homeless veterans.
Kreitzer told The Wanderer on June 7: “There is something seriously perverse about putting those who break our laws and invade our country into comfortable hotels and giving them room service while those who defend our country are living on the streets, getting no intervention for PTSD, little medical care, committing suicide, etc.
“The Bidens are a crime family with traitorous ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Kreitzer said, “so is it any real surprise that they couldn’t care less about those who serve our country? I suspect they hold patriotic Americans in contempt like Bill Clinton, who ‘loathed the military,’ and Obama’s preacher Jeremiah Wright, who said, ‘God damn America!’ “The Democrats are the racist domestic terrorists they’re always warning us against,” she said.
The Wanderer asked northern California conservative Catholic commentator Barbara Simpson why she thought Latino countries seem to produce so many bad governments for people to flee. She replied that “bad governing has nothing to do with religion or nationality….It’s the history of humanity on this planet.
“We’re dealing with human nature and the bad inclinations therein,” Simpson said. “That’s why a Constitution like we have is so important. We must be able to protect ourselves from our own government and the people
in it who would destroy us for their own selfish motives. Therein lies a book!” As for the current crisis, Simpson said, “Americans must feel their heads are spinning from the mixed messages from Washington concerning the calamity at our Southern border. Not only are thousands of illegals crossing the border almost at will, the hands of law enforcement have been tied in too many instances.
“Now, not only are the feds secretly flying illegals from the border to locations in interior states, illegals are being put up in hotels taken over for that purpose,” Simpson said. “Prime example is Scottsdale. . . . While area residents demonstrate against the feds, the placement of illegals in a first-class hotel continues, paid for by American taxpayers. This, while our citizens too often find themselves homeless because of job loss — and the government does nothing.
“Biden voters must wonder what’s going on,” she said. “Trump supporters know they have the answer.”
June 13, 2021 (The Wanderer) There are two solutions on the horizon to our present national crisis. The first is a purely political one, which seeks to impose a way of life on people in the form of a set of arbitrary rules. We see this today with the widespread imposition of political correctness. The second is not primarily political but Christian, specifically ethics based on the natural law. Insofar as the latter urges people to live by love of God and neighbor, its appeal is to the inner person.
The purely political solution, as history teaches us, consistently fails to bring about what it promises. The Christian solution will succeed, but only when people decide to live in accordance with their inalienable dignity. Politics has the power, but Christianity has the blueprint.
Politics operates from the outside. Christianity proceeds from a person’s willingness to choose what is good. Politics rules from the few who are in power. Christianity renounces power and appeals to everyone. Is the power of politics, however, capable of making men good? Can it even make men civil?
As Christianity begins to lose its influence, politics becomes more coercive. The increased empowerment of politics inevitably leads to the erosion of personal freedom. The replacement of ethics by politics is the loss of a moral compass which allows people to direct their own lives. The loss of ethics is one of such magnitude that it leaves no room for an adequate replacement. The Christian solution may fail; the political solution will always fail.
The distinguished historian, Christopher Dawson, has indicated that without the nourishment that a spiritualized ethics provides, “society does not possess a civilization, but only a technological order resting on a vacuum” (The Crisis of Western Education, p. 150). There is an obvious relationship, he adds, “between the breakdown of the moral order when it is deprived of its spiritual aims and sanctions and the breakdown of civilization when it loses its relation to the moral order” (ibid., p. 199). Politics cannot stand alone.
The politician who dismisses the principles of Christianity as so much pie in the sky believes himself to be a realist. In this regard, he is a disciple of Machiavelli and therefore looks upon society as an art form that, like a block of marble, can be carved into a suitable image. He is not a respecter of either personal initiative or human freedom.
Unfortunately, he is ignorant of both history as well as human nature. Politics, in the sense we have described, operates through power.
Christianity operates through love. In the final analysis, the power of love will triumph over the love of power. But the antagonism between these two approaches is a continuing drama that outlines the course of human history. It is not likely that one could ever be entirely free from the other.
Politics is concerned with expediency, getting the job done as quickly as possible. Christianity is dedicated to truth which enables people, perhaps slowly, to flourish in a context of realism. Politicians are utopian, holding to the unsupportable belief that through political influence alone, society can achieve justice for all. Christianity acknowledges the imperfections of man and understands that a perfect world is not possible. Christianity does not despair of this world, but hopes for a better one in the hereafter. In fact, it is the Christian belief that one’s reward in Heaven is commensurate with his service to others while he is on Earth.
With regard to the notion of utopia, Thomas Molnar has made a most realistic point in his book Utopia the Perennial Heresy, one that the new political enthusiasts should read and take seriously: “From time to time the belief spreads among men that it is possible to construct an ideal society. Then the call is sounded for all to gather and build it — the City of God on Earth. Despite its attractiveness, this is a delirious ideal stamped with the madness of logic.”
We are now dealing with ideas that are essentially delirious. They may be short-lived, one hopes, but they must be exposed for what they are so as to limit the amount of damage they will cause. The end of ethics is the end of aspiration. It is, consequently, the abolition of man, for man is a being who cannot live without hope. To be constricted by a politically correct straitjacket means that one is no longer functioning as an autonomous human being.
Despite the notions of “diversity” and “inclusivity,” which represent a completely politicized form of ethics, many individuals, especially in the teaching professions, have been suspended, punished, expelled, or directed to sensitivity training because there is no room for their views in the newly politicized and contradictory meanings of these two notions. The regnant politics, shorn of personal ethics, should be more accurately cast as featuring “uniformity” and “intolerance.”
Hence, it cannot abide philosophical criticism that would expose its duplicity. Paradoxically, it is not only welcomed by many universities, but given a place of unchallenged authority.
Unlike the United States Constitution, it has no provision for self-correction. Its fragile future will be held together only by power and deception.
At the close of his book, The Gods of Revolution, Christopher Dawson addresses the futility of politics without Christian ethics as well as the fragility of Christianity:
“Consequently it is to Christianity that Western culture must look for leadership and help in restoring the moral and spiritual means of our civilization. If it fails to do so, it means either the failure of Christianity or the condemnation of civilization” (p. 166).
June 14, 2021 (The Wanderer) Last week I tried to cover some of the threats to our Church by the forces of darkness. This week I’d like to turn my attention to our nation. Both topics, considering the state of the world today, can be unsettling to consider. I understand that. Bear with me, however, for one last column on the topic, for a while anyway.
I don’t necessarily want to date myself, but I grew up partly during the time of the Red Scare when people were finding Communists behind every corner and under every bed. I remember finding out about most of those things as a kid watching the old black-and-white television news programs. I have vague memories of Douglas Edwards, Huntley-Brinkley, and John Cameron Swayze whose Timex watches would “take a licking and keep on ticking.”
Communism, air raid drills, and all that scary stuff — but that’s over, of course. We learned to live with the Red Menace, ultimately deceiving ourselves that we were too smart to be overtaken. After all, we had a Red-busting FBI to protect us — we kids knew about that since we saw it nearly every week at the movies.
But as time went on we began to realize that our childhood comforts might not be that comfortable after all. I remember watching the antiwar marches when I was in college and wondering why so many of my friends were starting to parrot the Red line, even quoting Chairman Mao. A lot of it didn’t make much sense to me, except that there was a growing group of people who always seemed to blame America for everything; at the time they were mostly members of far-left fringe groups that sprang up on college campuses advanced by people who didn’t want to get drafted.
They burned their draft cards, I put on the uniform. They were just going through a growing phase, or so I thought.
Until the past few years. Then things started to come together for me. I’ve watched — on my color TV — marchers taking to the street with a completely different agenda than I had seen before. Their talking points and political pronouncements started to resemble the extension of things I had heard watching those old Senate hearings on TV.
Then things started to really bother me — like replacing education with indoctrination and differing standards for certain sets of people.
I remember at one of the colleges in which I taught we were told not to fail certain students even if they didn’t attend class and turned in poor work. Journalism turned from an honorable profession to another indoctrination outlet. Then there came those with same-sex attractions demanding equality in marriage; the rise of the transgender movement, and the embrace of a shifting morality that accepted literally everything as normal.
Of course there was the attack on religion by newly self-proclaimed gurus of the left, the expansion of welfare programs which for too many eliminated the need for work. That was followed by attacks on some of our most valued institutions. And the biggest of all, in my opinion, has been the weakening of the family and the rise of the abortion state.
The problem with all of this was that most of it seemed so unconnected. The divergent groups pushing each of the above movements seemed only loosely connected to one another. But behind the groups there was an explanation that most folks pooh-poohed, not because it was wrong but because it seemed so silly. It was the Red Menace; Communist infiltrators, their fellow travelers and their useful idiots. All ready to undermine our way of life.
There is a quote attributed to Joseph Stalin, although its authorship is disputed, which is worth noting:
“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”
From that time, during the Red Scare, there was a book written by a former FBI agent, W. Cleon Skousen, The Naked Communist (1958), as a warning for Americans. It didn’t exactly corroborate the Stalin quotation, but it did introduce those who were interested to the history and “theology” behind Communism.
The author listed 45 goals that the Communist Party outlined for success in the United States. I’ve taken some of them directly from the book.
See if you recognize anything:
“Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. . . .
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. . . .
Infiltrate the press. . . .
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures. . . .
Continue discrediting American culture. . . .
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them ‘censorship’ and a violation of free speech and free press. . . .
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. . . .
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as ‘normal, natural, and healthy’. . . .
Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with ‘social’ religion. . . .
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of ‘separation of church and state’. . . .
“Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs. . . .
Discredit the American founding fathers. . . .
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture — education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics. . . .
Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat. . . .
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. . . .”
Anything ring a bell?
Here’s what the book’s author had to say by way of warning:
“The conquest of the United States by Marxist forces has been an important part of the plan of Communist leaders for many years:
‘First we will take Eastern Europe; then the masses of Asia. Then we will encircle the United States of America which will be the last bastion of Capitalism. We will not have to attack it; it will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.’ This clearly reflects the Marxist intent to overthrow the United States by internal subversion.
“The biggest mistake of the West has been allowing itself to drift into a state of mental stagnation, apathy, and inaction. In some circles, motivations of patriotism, loyalty, and the traditional dream of ‘freedom for all men’ have been lying dormant or have been paralyzed by a new kind of strange thinking.”
How are these predictions working out? Are you seeing it in today’s politics and society? If not, classify yourself as one of Comrade Stalin’s useful idiots. But if you can see the path we are on, you know we all need to do something.
Mr. Skousen not only gave us a warning, he also listed several things that we might do to stem the Red Tide, that is, if it is not too late:
“Stay close to your children to make sure they are being trained to think like Washington and Lincoln, not like Marx and Lenin . . .
Don’t forget their spiritual needs. . . .
Take your children to church, don’t send them. Be sure they are getting true religious values, not modernistic debunking.”
“Don’t be misled by the current atheistic drive to take God out of the classroom. . . .
Teachers who believe that teaching atheism is a necessary part of a good education are not really qualified to teach in a Judaic-Christian culture. They are entitled to be atheists but, as public employees, they are not entitled to teach it. If they do, they are violating an important constitutional principle.”
For the media:
“In fulfilling the task of exposing crime, corruption, and inefficiency in the American culture, be careful not to destroy confidence in American institutions. Because the negative forces in our society are more likely to be ‘news’ than the positive accomplishments, it is easy to overemphasize the negative side and provide extremely damaging propaganda to the enemy.”
And for ministers:
“Watch for those who would use the principles of peace, brotherhood, tolerance, and Christian charity to obscure the conspiratorial aspects of Communist ‘peace.’ The peace of Communism partakes of the prison and the grave. Remind professional pacifists who have accepted the paralyzing peace propaganda of the Communists that the same Jesus who taught ‘love thy enemy’ never advocated surrendering to him.”
Sounds a lot like the 1950s, and that’s what scares me. It sounds so much like the 1950s that good men are likely to dismiss this as a relic of a bygone era in our history not having anything to do with today’s reality; a curiosity of a time and place long ago that we needn’t bother with.
That should be enough to keep the frog in the pan for now. Oh heck, let’s just cancel the whole thing.
California parents and parents in all other States … Be afraid for your children … Be VERY afraid … Immorality spreads like a virus … especially when you abandon the teaching of your children to government (aka public) schools. The government is not the one who is going to live with the consequences of the anti-God, Marxist indoctrination of your children … YOU WILL: rebellion, rejection of faith, hatred, cruelty to others … you know, all of the actions done by the mobs this summer.
Shame on the parents of those children.
... Education Code 51932(b), the opt-out provision of the California Healthy Youth Act does not apply to instruction or materials outside the context of comprehensive sexual health education, including those that may reference gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, discrimination, bullying, relationships, or family. For example, the opt-out rule associated with comprehensive sexual health education would not apply to a social studies lesson on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.
Q: Does the law permit schools to teach comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education in elementary school?
A: Yes. Comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education may be taught in grades K-6, inclusive. All instruction and materials in grades K-6 must meet the instructional criteria or baseline requirements listed below. Content that is required in grades 7-12 may be also be included in an age-appropriate way in earlier grades. (EC §§ 51933, 51934(b).)
This is an example of the upside-down “truth” that is being taught to – indoctrinated into – your children by their teachers, the current regime, social media, big tech, filthy rich politicians, and the main-stream media.
Waking Up Woke
June 14, 2021 (Crisis Magazine)I had an epiphany the other evening while flying from one airport to another in a world whose contours have grown less and less familiar to me. Far less friendly, too. It may be worth sharing since others, I suspect, may have been similarly struck. Actually, it hit me long before boarding the plane; in fact, the moment I entered the airport I felt its impact—not on the order of Moses and the Burning Bush, mind you, but jarringly real nonetheless.
How shall I describe it? It was one of those Howard Beale moments when, all at once, you feel moved to announce to anyone who will listen how hopping mad you are and that you’re simply not going to take it anymore. Does that resonate, I wonder, with any readers out there? Who hasn’t experienced, in the last year or so, the madness of living in an America that appears to be on its way to becoming wholly woke?
And, by the way, is that even a word? What does it mean? Like most clueless consumers of the internet, I needed to look it up—on Google, of course. There I discovered the origin of it, and an intimation as to why it has come to tyrannize over our lives. It’s a slang term for being alert to injustice in society, especially racial injustice. The premise is left unexamined, of course, so one never quite knows what the woke crowd mean by such terms. Only that by joining “Black Lives Matter,” one would be doing the most wonderfully woke thing in the world.
This allows one, then, to attack “White Privilege,” even as one remains thoroughly white, which has now become so widespread a tendency as to qualify as a medical condition—a mass contagion, as it were. It seems not to have affected ordinary black people, by the way, only huge numbers of highly-pampered, pseudo-educated white people, many of whom live in suburbs where they are being looked after by guilt-ridden liberal parents. The phenomenon certainly suggests the self-lacerating lengths to which the insanely insecure are now being driven.
So, I’m having this Howard Beale moment at the airport. For those fortunate few who actually prefer reading books to watching movies, Howard Beale is a character in a film that came out years ago called Network. In the film, Peter Finch brilliantly portrays Howard Beale, a famous newscaster. In the middle of a meltdown on the air, Beale announces to millions of viewers that the time has now come for everyone to get really mad. “I want you to get up now,” he tells everyone, “…get out of your chairs…go to the window…open it, stick your head out and yell…I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
But we do take it, don’t we? In fact, we’ve always taken it, which is why the exercise I had the other night was the sheerest fantasy. And yet there I was, wishing more than anything to mount some outsize soapbox above the faceless crowd (who moved in mindless lockstep to the safety instructions issued by airport security) to declaim, in the most stentorian voice I could summon, that we really don’t have to take this anymore.
Take what, for heaven’s sake? What could possibly justify my interrupting a thousand busy lives? Was there a particular provocation that pushed me over the edge, something to warrant such full-throated expression? In public, no less?
Before I tell you, I should confess, once again, that of course I said and did nothing. The festering rage and resentment failed to erupt, owing to the usual embarrassment most of us would sooner keep inside rather than face. Besides not wanting to cause a scene, I did not wish to be arrested, either. It is not just death that makes cowards of us all but the pressures of social convention as well.
But if I’d actually had a real, honest-to-God, Howard Beale moment, here are the provocations that would have set it off—which, to be sure, have not gone away and, in my darker moments, will never go away. The first is that most odious face covering we’ve all been relentlessly instructed to wear, the absurdity of which continues to baffle and bedevil any sane person who has tried to follow the science. We don’t need to wear the damn thing anymore, not at airports, not on airplanes. Not anywhere. The time has come to simply lift the mandate, leaving it to the fetishists to wear if it makes them feel safe and snug. As for the rest of us—who have either had COVID-19 and survived, or taken the vaccine, or simply choose not to wear one—just leave us all alone. Everyone is entitled, as Chesterton would say, to be his or her “potty little self.” And never mind what tyrannical little twits like Tony Fauci might say. Tell him to stuff it. He can use my mask if he needs something to stuff it with, too.
And the other? That would be the whole massive state security apparatus that now surrounds us at every airport, intruding ever more obnoxiously upon our privacy. And to what end? In the interest, so we have endlessly been told, of staying safe, of keeping the terrorists from blowing us all up. And so even eighty-five-year-old nuns must submit to close inspection, and God help them if the officious TSA agent suspects an explosive device hidden in her rosary.
Where, I ask, amid all these deprivations by which a once free people now find themselves bound and fettered, do we find even a scintilla of resentment, much less that wellspring of indignation righteously felt in the face of such an enemy? Where is that targeted rage directed at those responsible for upending our lives?
Yes, the Twin Towers fell. Its mastermind was then duly taken out; a long, inconclusive war ensued, and here we are, twenty years later, and we’re still not safe. Are we not entitled to be angry at those forces within Islam that sanctioned the terror? And as to the Pandemic, evidence for which more and more points to China as having exported it to the world, will that result in real, sustained rage at a country so indifferent to human life as to blithely wipe out millions of people across the globe? Not to mention the complicity of not a few powerful and well-situated Americans who both assisted in making it happen and profited from it.
Perfect justice in a fallen world is not possible. I know that. But even imperfect justice would be welcome at this point. It will not happen, however, until enough people throw open their windows and start to shout, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
COVID vaccine makers have a disturbing track record of criminal and civil liability
June 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Politicians and corporate CEOs offering clever incentives to encourage people to roll up their sleeves for COVID-19 vaccines tend not to talk about the vaccine companies’ troubling history of illegal business practices including fraudulent marketing, patent infringement, and failing to notify consumers about toxic ingredients.
Between 1991 and 2017, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca — three vaccine makers whose COVID vaccines are widely used across the world — have together paid out a total of $8.62 billion to resolve civil and criminal allegations in 67 state and federal settlements. Moderna, a relative newcomer, has come under scrutiny for secrecy about its funding and the results of its clinical trials. The fraught legal history of the corporations tends to grant legitimacy to the skepticism many feel about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines they have produced.
In a December 2020 report published by U.K.-based social justice organization Global Justice Now, Director Nick Dearden and Dr. James Angel wrote that “the current pharmaceutical model is actually deeply flawed, delivering outcomes which are poor value for money for the public sector, which exacerbate global inequality and which are driven by the objective to make sky-high returns to shareholders, not a healthier population.”
The report by Global Justice Now, which has criticized the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for “unaccountably skewing the direction of international development,” went on to describe the pharmaceutical model as one which grants incentives for “the most appalling behavior including aggressive marketing of inappropriate drugs, kickbacks to doctors, claims of testing drugs on children without proper consent, massive price hikes on essential medicines, profiteering, blocking competition, and secrecy … Some of this behavior has given rise to serious legal challenges and even some of the largest fines in history.”
June 9, 2021 (American Thinker) Throughout the past 16 months of COVID, we have been told to follow the science.
How has that worked out? We have heeded each word of the guru of science, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Pied Piper of the Chinese coronavirus, who has graced magazine covers and spend more time being interviewed on cable news shows and emailing social media titans than researching the pandemic he has been managing. It turns out he has been leading the world down a pathway of deceit, deception, and ruin.
Mask science doesn’t add up. Neither does six feet of social distancing, quarantining the healthy, closing schools and businesses, allowing massive social justice protests but stopping a small family wedding or funeral. Medicines that have been safely taken for 60 years are suddenly going to kill anyone who dares take them, but experimental, non-FDA-approved vaccines are safe for everyone, even young children. What science are we following? Medical science, political science, or Chinese propaganda?
Herd immunity is another bit of science that is suddenly on par with the Earth being flat. It’s “magical thinking” according to the “follow the science” left because it can be “achieved only through the use of vaccines.” Why then before vaccines were invented, wasn’t every viral pandemic a human extinction event? Mayo Clinic explains herd immunity:
Herd immunity occurs when a large portion of a community (the herd) becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. As a result, the whole community becomes protected — not just those who are immune.
Herd immunity is achieved in one of two ways, through natural infection or vaccination. Once a sufficient percent of the population has immunity, the infection has difficulty finding new victims and burns itself out.
The percentage of the population needing to be immune can vary from 50 to 90 percent, depending on how contagious the virus is. Once common viral infections like mumps, polio, and chickenpox are rare now due to herd immunity.
What is the herd immunity threshold for COVID? It depends on who you ask and when. Dr Flip-Flop Fauci has been as imprecise regarding herd immunity as he has been on how many masks, if any, we need to wear. According to “follow the science” New York Times:
Recently, a figure to whom millions of Americans look for guidance — Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, an adviser to both the Trump administration and the incoming Biden administration — has begun incrementally raising his herd-immunity estimate.
In the pandemic’s early days, Dr. Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did. About a month ago, he began saying “70, 75 percent” in television interviews. And last week, in an interview with CNBC News, he said “75, 80, 85 percent” and “75 to 80-plus percent.”
Pretty soon it will be 90 or 100 percent, or even more. Let’s keep our masks, distancing, and restrictions until the entire world is vaccinated, perhaps sometime in the next decade. Is Dr. Fauci following the real science or the political science of his deep state masters?
In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.
It seems Dr. Fauci has been moving more than herd immunity goalposts. He is juggling COVID origin stories as deftly as he juggles appearances on CNN and MSNBC, where he should be asked about an unnatural COVID genome sequencing highly suggestive of lab creation rather than typical media hard-hitting questions about his childhood bicycle.
It’s not a binary choice of allowing people to become infected versus vaccinated. Instead, it’s both. If schools remained open, the virus would have spread through children, few if any becoming seriously ill. This is not to advocate harming children.
Only 300 children, age 0-17 have died of or with COVID, and it’s unknown how many were immunocompromised or with medical comorbidities. Compare that to 477 influenza deaths in the same age group during the 2018-19 flu season, without any push to close schools. Also add in children suicide attempts, on the rise, for which Children’s Hospital Colorado declared a state of emergency as one example
Vaccinations are well underway in the U.S. with 51% partially and 41% fully vaccinated. The CDC estimates a third of Americans have been infected with COVID, meaning we are much closer to herd immunity than naysayers choose to admit. Over the upcoming months, more will be vaccinated or infected, leaving fewer and fewer individuals for the virus to infect.
Other countries are not there yet. Island nations of New Zealand and Australia are only 5% and 2%, respectively, vaccinated, with very few natural cases due to frequent lockdowns and long quarantine periods for visitors, meaning their herd immunity is a ways off, and a few cases making it past their safety measures could devastate their populations.
As vaccines in the U.S. have been readily available for months, most who want or plan to get the jab have done so already. Further efforts at this point, including celebrities and athletes shaming the unvaccinated, are not likely to yield further vaccinations.
Wouldn’t it be a good time for some thoughtful scientific discussion of herd immunity and where we are? Rather than the constant fear porn and continued emergency orders for lockdowns as seen in California. How about some optimism after over a year of doom and gloom?
If we are at or close to herd immunity, the push to vaccinate young children, at extremely low risk of getting sick from COVID, with an experimental vaccine, can and should end.
Unless fear is a good distraction from what the media and deep state would prefer to remain buried. Like the origins of the virus and what role Dr. Fauci and U.S. intelligence agencies played in the creation of a bioweapon ultimately used against America and the world. All to benefit China and destroy President Trump. Was that the plan all along?
Our government is evolving into something horrifying
June 8, 2021 (Lifesitenews) It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role in the NIH’s funding of so-called “gain-of-function” research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox’s Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci’s department in the NIH, “collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it.”
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence – both in testimony and in the court of public opinion – continues to mount.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than “Mr. Science” himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci’s NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden’s return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.
