Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (101)

                           Do Authoritarians Care for You?

By Joseph Mercola (, 17/9/2022

Government officials, public health officials, media and a whole host of other talking heads that parrot official talking points have repeatedly lied to us. We knew this, but now — without apology — they’re all starting to “admit” it by subtly changing the narrative.

As noted by comedian Jimmy Dore in the August 3, 2022, episode of “The Jimmy Dore Show” (video above):

“This story is very close to my heart, because it exonerates me. They’ve been lying about COVID, they’ve been lying about the vaccines, they’ve been lying about herd immunity, they’ve been lying about natural immunity, they’ve been lying about masks.

They’ve been lying about children — they’ve been lying about everything! Who’d have thunk the government and Big Pharma would lie to us? For profit? I am flummoxed. I am beside myself with slack-jawedness.”

Now, They’re Eating Their Own Words

He goes on to review specific examples, such as President Biden claiming “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.” Or Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said “When they are vaccinated, they can feel safe they are not going to get infected.”

Or Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who stated, “If you’ve done the right thing and gotten vaccinated, you deserve the freedom to be safe from COVID-19.” (Word salad aside — can you “deserve freedom to be safe” from an infection? — nevertheless, he makes the point that you supposedly won’t get COVID if you got the jab.)

Vice President Kamala Harris said, “If you are vaccinated, you are protected.” Daniel Andrews, premier in Victoria, Australia, claimed that with three doses, you would be “prevented not only from serious illness, but from getting this virus, this Omicron variant, and therefore giving it to others.”

Victoria chief health officer professor Brett Sutton, who got the AstraZeneca jab, insisted it was a “very effective vaccine” that reduced “risk of transmission.” Every one of these officials has now contracted COVID, some two or three times.

We Knew the Shots Were Leaky

A primary objection to vaccine mandates was, as Dore points out, that a leaky “vaccine” — one that doesn’t actually prevent infection and spread — cannot protect anyone other than the one getting the shot. So, the argument that COVID jab refusers were killing people was false. The notion that getting the jab would protect people around you was rubbish.

“These were lies,” Dore says, “they were not making a mistake. They were lying.” What’s the incentive for lying about an injection that clearly cannot do what you say it can? Dore suggests they were lying on behalf of their donors — Pfizer, Moderna, et. al. Of course, the National Institutes of Health,1,2 for example, also owns patents related to these jabs, so they make money from them directly.

So, with the truth now being self-evident, why aren’t media asking why Fauci, Biden, Harris, Trudeau and the rest were spreading misinformation? Where’s the follow-up? And where are the apologies? Rachel Maddow, would you like to revise this proven-untrue statement, made on “The Rachel Maddow Show?”

“Instead of the virus being able to hop from person to person to person, spreading and spreading … now we KNOW that the vaccines work well enough; that the virus STOPS with every vaccinated person.

A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus can then not use that person to go anywhere else. It cannot use a vaccination person as a host to get more people. That means the vaccines will get us to the end of this.”

This propaganda did not age well, and that’s putting it mildly. Now, they’re trying to sidestep the landmines of truth — real-world realities — and claim that the shots were never intended to prevent infection, it was always about preventing serious illness and keeping you out of the hospital. But the statements quoted above, which is just a small sampling, prove otherwise.

The very basis and justification for forcing an experimental gene therapy on everyone was that it would end the pandemic by preventing infection and spread. People lost their jobs over that fraudulent justification. Friendships have been lost and family ties broken because people believed the propaganda that said if you don’t get the shot, you don’t care about others. Your very presence could be lethal to them. So, if you care about others, you will get the shot.

Do Authoritarians Care About You?

That brings us to a more important question, and that is, do these authoritarians actually care about any of us? They claim the reason for their actions is their deep concern for public health and the good of society. But is that really the case? Or is it just a PR strategy?

After all, coming out and saying you want to reduce the population by some percentage, or eliminate the financial drain by the elderly and the handicapped, isn’t going to encourage compliance with the strategies intended to bring about those effects, is it. It would make more sense to tell people to comply “for their own good, and the good of others.” Then, the intended effect — depopulation — is brought about by voluntary sacrifice.

Totalitarianism as ‘Care’

In “Totalitarianism as ‘Care,’”3 political commentator Elena Louisa Lange dissects the biomedical regime’s moral imperative to “protect the vulnerable,” which in 2020, for the first time, came to mean that everyone, regardless of personal risk, had to isolate, wear a mask and get an experimental gene therapy, “regardless of the price in bodily integrity and autonomy.”

The left’s pretense of ‘protecting the vulnerable’ is not only politically and socially corrosive. It also rests, philosophically, on an indefensible and authoritarian rationale. ~ Elena Louisa Lange

In a show of solidarity never before seen, hundreds of companies changed their logos and brand slogans to promote the COVID jabs. Political parties, schools, media, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) also told us to just get the jab — or else. The following extract from Lange’s article is a bit longer than usual, but the expanded context is what makes Lange’s point clear. Beyond this, I recommend reading her article in its entirety:4

“The rhetoric of ‘vulnerability’ and ‘care’ bullied the masses into accepting a string of human- and civil-rights violations, such as being imprisoned in our own homes, the oxymoronic ‘social distancing,’ masking, and, above all, mandated vaccinations unprecedented in their severity and global scale.

Yet the left’s pretense of ‘protecting the vulnerable’ is not only politically and socially corrosive. It also rests, philosophically, on an indefensible and authoritarian rationale.

The exclusive attention given to the abstract framework of ‘vulnerability’ and ‘solidarity,’ ‘community’ and ‘care’ — always ‘for others,’ never for oneself — served to disguise the loss of income and psychological damage caused by large-scale civil-rights suspensions …

The idea of vulnerability as a guiding political principle of the left goes back to the birth of social-democratic and labor parties in the early 20th century. It was the working class that needed protection from the cruel vicissitudes of the market …

But since the emergence of the neoliberal consensus in the 1970s, a remarkable shift has taken place … It is no longer the working class … but specific identity groups, the racially marginalized and the sexually excluded, who became ‘vulnerable subjects’ …

What really cemented the PMC [professional-managerial class] left’s rise to power, however, was a more fundamental epistemic shift. The left … usually busy declaring everything to be a ‘social construct,’ suddenly proclaimed the novel coronavirus to be a ‘natural phenomenon,’ a ‘challenge by uncontrollable natural forces’ … the virus was to be seen as a self-acting agent with its own subjective intent, motives, even political agenda.

This fetishistic inversion — ascribing autonomous powers to a lifeless thing — legitimated technocratic solutions like lockdowns and the feverishly promoted mass vaccinations, no matter the social costs. Moreover, turning the virus into an intentional agent shifted the blame for suicides and domestic violence, the loss of income, and extreme police violence against protesters, away from the politicians and bureaucrats, and onto ‘nature.’

A pathogen … is only as severe as the social response to it. If the response, justified as an ‘objective constraint’ of the virus, is more lethal than the cause, then we are dealing with a disastrous fallacy …

‘[V]ulnerability’ in the PMC’s imagination had to be shifted from vulnerable groups in the precise sense (the elderly, children, precarious service workers, etc.) to an undifferentiated whole under constant attack from the enemies of civil society, which happened to be the professionals’ own political enemies.

This move conveniently enabled the identification of the ‘fight against the virus’ with the ‘fight against fascism,’ conflating questions of medical hygiene with those of ‘social hygiene.’

The vocal denunciation of critics of the biopolitical security state as ‘right-wingers,’ conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, and so on was only legible, and consequential, against the backdrop of this conflation, for it put the question of the defeat of the virus on par with the victory of the left.”

Transhistorical Rationale of Civil-Rights Violations

How are “vulnerable” people “protected” by the destruction of lives and livelihoods, and the removal of basic civil rights and Constitutional freedoms? Our authoritarian leaders have yet to explain this self-defeating rationale. All we get is Orwellian double-speak, where war is peace and slavery is freedom.

Lange points out that once you go beyond political motives, the argument against forced vaccinations tells us a lot about the transhistorical rationale of civil-rights violations by the state.

Throughout history, the driving objective of power-hungry elites is the disenfranchisement of ordinary citizens. And how do you disenfranchise people? By taking away basic rights, such as the right to drink a cup of coffee or eat a meal you’re willing and able to pay for in a restaurant, lest you first submit to medical experimentation.

And how do you get people to submit to medical experimentation? By shaming them as egotists who care nothing for society. In a fiery speech, 23-year-old Green Member of the German Bundestag, Emilia Fester (quoted in full by Lange), argued that:

“It is not mandated vaccination that is the imposition, but no mandated vaccination — an imposition for the solidarity-based majority … Getting vaccinated can no longer be an individual decision!”5

Violation of Physical Boundaries Protects No One

Throughout the pandemic, governments, employers, NGOs and media have argued that the social responsibility to “protect others” is so paramount that it negates all other considerations. According to them, one individual’s freedom and bodily autonomy ends where the freedom and autonomy of another begins.

Rather than being sovereign individuals who make decisions for ourselves, we are to view ourselves as links in a never-ending chain, where every decision you make will impact the people around you, and if your decision has even so much as the potential to restrict their freedom and autonomy — such as, for example, if you make them sick so they can’t work or socialize — then you “don’t have the right” to make that decision.

As noted by Lange, the moral imposition can be summarized as: “Give up your bodily integrity to protect the bodily integrity of others.” But rather than protecting others, the end result is the opposite, because it creates “infinite regress.”

In other words, if I give up my bodily integrity for you, then you have to give up yours for others, who also have to give up theirs, and so on. So, in the end, no one has the right to, ever, say no to anything, even if what’s asked might cause injury or death.

Since there’s no backstop, and everyone has to sacrifice themselves for others, no one is actually protected. Instead, everyone’s at risk. Everyone’s autonomy has been violated — including that of the most vulnerable. The COVID vaccination campaign is a glaring example of this.

Many who got the shots are still getting sick, many have been injured or died from the side effects, while those who refused to comply lost their jobs and, in some areas, can’t even enter a store. Everyone has lost rather than gained, and in more ways than one.

Bodily Integrity for All Is the Best Protection

Not only does the demand of self-sacrifice for others put the most vulnerable at risk of injury and death, since they too must roll the dice with risky medical interventions in order to “protect others,” but it also eliminates our moral ability to defend and protect the physical autonomy of others. If we cannot defend our own boundaries, how can we defend the boundaries of others?

Sadly, we now have real-world examples of where this all leads. Children and adults in need of organ transplants, for example, are being denied life-saving procedures for lack of COVID injection, even though the shot is more likely to kill them than protect anyone around them (supposedly the already COVID-jabbed and boosted hospital staff). We’ve entered a state of such massive moral degradation that it hardly seems human anymore.

The only way to actually protect people and minimize harm is by allowing everyone to do what they think is best for themselves. As noted by Lange:6

“In consequence, either there is general physical autonomy for each and every single individual, implying mutual respect for one’s physical boundaries, or there is none. The violation of physical boundaries … is never in the interest of the ‘vulnerable,’ because the protection of bodily integrity itself is already the best guarantee for the protection of ‘others,’ as well as oneself: It is, in fact, the only guarantee of physical protection for everyone.

This becomes even more apparent in the COVID case when we consider that the vaccinated can be infected and can infect others, and, therefore, potentially hurt them. In this sense, the logical framework for COVID mass vaccinations in the name of ‘vulnerability’ is self-defeating.”

‘Social Care’ Narrative Is About Consolidation of Power

One of the key take-home messages in Lange’s article is that this “social care” and “responsibility for others” paradigm is a ploy used to consolidate power. In her words:7

“In sum, the claim to ‘protect the vulnerable’ is the more or less direct demand to yield to political disenfranchisement under the guise of the honorable project of care … The left’s political project of ‘protecting the vulnerable’ is nothing short of window-dressing authoritarianism.”

The authoritarians don’t actually care about people and their health. Anyone can realize this simply by analyzing their actions, rather than their words. They care about controlling people as a means to gain more power. Of course, the more power they get, the more they need to control you, lest you rise up and strip them of that power.

The hallmark call of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes is to “serve the greater good” by sacrificing selfhood. Everything is about the collective. There’s no room for individuality. In my interview with psychologist Mattias Desmet, he explains the psychology of totalitarianism, and the conditions that precede the rise of totalitarian systems.

The same “care” narrative is also being used to prop up the “climate emergency.” We’re now told we have to sacrifice our standard of living because we have a responsibility for others and for the earth. We have to rein in our personal carbon footprint because pollution is deadly, and if you don’t, you’re — again — responsible for widespread death.

While pollution is a reality that needs to be addressed, the solutions the totalitarian cabal is offering is a gigantic scam designed to disempower and control everyone but the ones at the very top of the power pyramid, while accomplishing little in terms of producing a cleaner environment.

Washington’s Tennis Court Rules

Politics, not Science, Prevented Novak Djokovic from Participating in the US Open

Robert W Malone MD, MS

Guest Editorial by David Marks

David Marks is a veteran writer and documentary film producer. He was the originator and lead investigator for the BBC/PBS co-production of Nazi Gold – revealing the role of Switzerland in World War II – and one of the most widely viewed documentaries on television. David’s new book, “The Way,” is an interpretation of the Chinese classic, the Tao Te Ching, available at

One of the world’s great tennis players, Novak Djokovic, was prohibited from playing in the paramount U.S. tournament of the year. Although in July he went to London and won the championship at Wimbledon, his unwillingness to be vaccinated precluded his travel to the United States.

As the US Open comes to a conclusion without Djokovic, there is growing understanding of the effects of COVID-19 and its variants, but U.S. government immigration policy has intentionally lagged in light of this knowledge. For over two years, the Center For Disease Control, the Federal Drug Administration and US officials have made highly questionable pronouncements about the ability of COVID-19 vaccines to prevent transmission and illness. This has driven restrictions that have inconvenienced and punished the unvaccinated, without having any impact on the pandemic.

Promoting vaccines has been a central factor in almost all US government decisions since the disease first appeared. And even as their effectiveness in stopping transmission became doubtful, this position has remained entrenched.

Vaccine manufacturer Pfizer originally claimed their product was over 94% effective after a second dose. Along with the assertions of other vaccine developers, even with additional boosters, these findings were steadily proven to be inconsistent at best. An increasing number of so-called breakthrough cases indicated vaccines were not stopping viral infection — the core measure of effectiveness — particularly from the new variants that quickly emerged. Even as the CDC became aware that the virus was not contained by vaccines, the Biden administration elevated its tirade against those who refused vaccination with unprecedented hostility and inflammatory rhetoric within the context of a public health crisis.

The Pandemic of the Unvaccinated is a term that broadcasts a baseless premise. It has stigmatized nearly half of the US population and continues to be used as a tool to promote indiscriminate government policy. Its invocation has only added further division and animosity to what should be a sober, considered debate about possible benefits and risks of vaccination.

Defining Vaccines

Both the White House and CDC knew that the vaccines were not at all meeting promised expectations, but they failed to change policy. It was more convenient to adjust the meaning of the term, and indeed the CDC did just that, altering the definition of vaccines on their website. The original page about Vaccines and Immunizations, said a vaccine is, “A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.” The revised page, as of September 2021, says, “A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” This not-so-subtle change fit with the embarrassingly poor results, and decreased the apparent hypocrisy in public explanations and denials.

Ongoing scientific research revealed that response to vaccines was not even close to the beneficial results proclaimed by pharmaceutical giants and the White House; and most Americans still don’t know the truth. In October of 2021, a study proved that viral loads were no different in vaccinated or unvaccinated people with COVID-19. This key finding, in accord with other data that proved the vaccines inefficacious, was virtually ignored.

By the end of 2021, the CDC knew the vaccine would also have a minimal capability in stopping infection from the new Omicron variant. However the White House push for inoculation did not stop. At the beginning of 2022, President Biden prefaced his relentless campaign for vaccination by admitting, “If you are vaccinated and boosted, you may get COVID” — but without any scientific basis, continued to blame the unvaccinated for the suffering in the pandemic.

The CDC Seemingly Awakens to Reality

With increasing public pressure and a flurry of pending lawsuits, the CDC’s most recent COVID recommendations no longer differentiate the approach to prevention or treatment based on a person’s vaccination status. The guidance states that current vaccines provide minimal protection against infection and transmission.

Despite the CDC’s admission, the Biden administration has not stopped promoting vaccines as the primary means of diminishing or ending the pandemic. The claim that they could still prevent serious illness and death deflects away from the more important challenge of stopping infection.

Although there is conflicting data on the general efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines regarding serious complications, one detail is indisputable: those with the greatest risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19, from early on in the pandemic until now, have been patients with other life-threatening conditions or those in high-risk populations for all illness — whether they are vaccinated or not.

As millions of people with multiple vaccinations continue to be infected, the vaccine’s inability to affect transmission has become obvious in public and private spheres. Scientists have shown that the sub-variants of Omicron prove to be highly resistant to vaccines. And even with the recognition that previous inoculation efforts have failed completely, the pharmaceutical industry and the White House are preparing to distribute the next generation of COVID vaccines.

Politics Disguised as Protection

In this bizarre climate where facts don’t matter, the federal government continues to require international travelers without a U.S. passport or permanent residency to have a current COVID vaccine in order to enter the country. Because vaccine effectiveness has not been addressed openly, and reliance on inoculation can still be presented by the government as central to fighting the pandemic, this policy continues.

It is blatantly apparent that conditional entry into the United States has nothing to do with risk of illness to anyone, particularly healthy athletes like Djokovic. Though unvaccinated, Djokovic has had COVID-19, and widely accepted studies indicate that his natural immunity would give him greater and longer resistance than any COVID vaccine, particularly against new variants. There is no scientific basis for claiming he would be creating a unique risk to anyone, including himself.

It is not difficult to see that the regulation that prohibits Djokovic from competing in the U.S. Open is political rather than scientific. This policy ignores all available research and data, including the CDC’s admission about the vaccine’s limitations. So if it is not based on science or health, who does this prohibition benefit or protect?

A reasonable conclusion is that an open admission by the U.S. government that vaccination had no impact on the course of the pandemic — would be politically devastating. This revelation would begin to awaken an entranced public — and increase calls for an inquiry into the continuing motivation for government agencies to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak by narrowly focusing on vaccines as a panacea.

An examination of the decision-making process of the CDC and the FDA would additionally expose the history of the financial influence of pharmaceutical companies on policies that have adversely effected all Americans. This relationship has had a devastating impact on the pandemic; the protocols in responding to a health crisis should have been continually reviewed and revised by an open, independent body.

Any honest evaluation of the response to the pandemic reveals that politicians and bureaucrats continue to play with objective facts. The unvaccinated have remained convenient scapegoats, blamed and punished for no other reason than to cover for the errors and misdeeds of the U.S. government.

Sadly, Djokovic, whose stance is noble, honorable and heroic, is a pawn in this game.

Stop Treating Girls Like Boys

“The goal of feminism was always and only ever about transgressing gender boundaries.”

Matthew Littlefield


If you are wondering why we have a plague of transgenderism wreaking havoc on our society, let me explain why this is so: it is because more than likely you have many transgender views and practices. You would not realize this, because you most likely call them egalitarian views. Or you might simply say you believe in “equality.” Maybe you just call them Western values, if you even give them a name. 

Most westerners have imbibed transgender views from a young age because they have been raised in a culture that promotes the destruction of all gender boundaries. The average person, even the average scholar, does not realize this was the goal of feminist ideology from the beginning, to break all “detestable” gender distinctions, as Percy Bysshe Shelley said.

They are not aware that the famous leading feminist in the 19th century, Sarah Bernhardt, deliberately changed her dress from feminine to masculine, and publicly showed herself doing masculine things, to highlight gender differences could and should be transgressed. They are not aware that similar behaviour was modelled by a lot of feminists, and copied by 19th-century women who viewed these women as role models. The goal of feminism was always and only ever about transgressing gender boundaries. 

First, they sought to make women like men, casting them as warriors and providers. Then they undermined the reality of gender distinctions completely. We live in the fruit of their efforts; a society that cannot even define a woman, let alone define gender roles.

In such a society, all of the groundwork has been done for transgenderism to grow rampant, and it has. It is the natural and logical extension of feminist goals: the destruction of “detestable” gender boundaries. We live in such a society. Aussies and westerners have been literally feminised and reforged into the image of the early Satanic feminists

This has occurred to such a degree that many conservative, Christian, parents treat their little girls just like boys and push them into sports, and even traditionally masculine sports. This is not just transgender – gender boundary transgressing – to its core, it also hurts them. 

As The Guardian explains:

Are women more prone to injury?

Women are being encouraged to take up sport as never before. But new evidence suggests it can have a devastating effect on their bodies. Anna Kessel asks what’s being done to prevent an unlikely ‘epidemic’…

…But it is not male stars that sports doctors are now most worried about. It is sportswomen. They are currently considered to be up to eight times more likely to suffer anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage than men, and in the United States so many women and girls have been affected that one expert has called it an epidemic. The problem has been highlighted from the morning news bulletin on ABC to the front page of the New York Times as thousands of women and girls in competitive sport undergo ACL operations each year, at a cost of millions of dollars. The higher the level of competition, the more they are at risk. One in 10 women playing college sports will suffer an ACL injury.

Why the concern? Partly because we know so little about how men and women are susceptible to particular injuries, especially about the neuromuscular differences between the sexes. Research is still being carried out into rates of concussion, thought to be higher in women, joint injuries and even bone damage in endurance athletes leading to stress fractures of the femur, such as the one Paula Radcliffe suffered before the Beijing Olympics.

‘There are certain areas where you would say women appear to be at a greater risk,’ says OSM columnist Dr Nicholas Peirce, a lead physician at the English Institute of Sport. ‘We don’t know how increased activity is affecting hips, backs and shoulders. We see a large number of women having shoulder operations in canoeing and rugby, and there are other injuries, stress fractures of the back or stress lumbars on the lower spine. We are challenged to really follow and observe the demands of elite sport because at the moment there is a lot we don’t know.’

The most evident problems just now are with the anterior cruciate ligament, because it is such a devastating injury. Ruled out of action for sometimes more than a year, athletes fall behind in their sporting careers, are 25 per cent more likely to suffer the same injury again and, worst of all, face debilitating permanent damage to their knees. Women in their twenties are being described as ‘crippled’, even after successful ACL surgery, as osteoarthritis of the knee takes hold.

This article is from back in a time (2008) when even leftist outfits understood the clear differences between men and women. Men are designed to run, hunt, fight and exert themselves. Women are not, and it is not an accident that engaging in masculine endeavours hurts women in far, far higher numbers than men. That is their biology screaming at them to stop putting their bodies through that. 

You may say that sport is brutal on men too. Yes, it is, and a lot of men can’t cut it. But it is incumbent on men to prove themselves in a way, physically and mentally, that it is not incumbent on women to do. Men have a responsibility to provide for their wives, sons and daughters, and therefore men have a responsibility to use their bodies up in this process.

Proving yourself in sport is part of learning the courage, tenacity, competitiveness and physical prowess, that is necessary to be a providing man in this life. There are other ways too, of course, but sport is one of the most common ways. But the key point is that this is not incumbent on women, because God designed them to be provided for. That is the key difference. 

Stop treating little girls like little boys, their bodies cannot take it. And the evidence in society says nor can their psyches. So many kids today are confused about gender, because from their grandparents down, even most of the Christians around them are confused about gender.

Gender roles have been destroyed, utterly, just like the early feminists, inspired by Satan (yes, literally), intended. You’ve been conned, but biology supersedes ideology and the damage being done to kids is screaming at society to stop with this nonsense. Stop treating girls like boys.

More Churches Speak Up

“The Church has been the most successful movement against arbitrary tyrants throughout history. The more the Church speaks up, the more we can challenge evil, and the more likely we are to see totalitarian efforts fail.”

Matthew Littlefield


One of the biggest concerns of many people, Christian or not, during the Covid craziness, was the lack of a strong response from the Church. 

But more Church leaders are speaking up. A group of international church leaders have released the Frankfurt Declaration of Christian and Civil Liberties:

Christians, Against The Abuse Of Power

In the course of human events, it sometimes becomes necessary for people of good faith to speak out against the abuse of power. This should be done only after serious and prayerful deliberation, and even then, in an attitude of humility and with respect for the authorities that have been established by God. Such protest should be expressed in the hope that civil authorities who are found to be eroding rights and liberties may yet fulfill their responsibility as their rightful guardians.

A few concerned pastors from different continents, moved by an emergent totalitarianism of the State over all realms of society, and particularly the Church, and the disregard of God- given and constitutionally guaranteed rights during the Covid crisis, joined in common cause to craft a solemn declaration, which seeks to address these threats with the timeless truths of God’s Word. The following affirmations and denials, derived from biblical principles, we put forth for consideration by all Christians and relevant authorities, in the hope that this document will give light and strength for faithful witness to Jesus Christ in our day.

I particularly like this section: 

Call for Respect, Repentance, & Resistance

We commend and express our gratitude to those civil authorities who respect the essential nature of these Christian beliefs and practices and who have a high regard for individual and religious freedoms. To those civil authorities who have disregarded these freedoms, we call on you to repent and to become again the protectors of liberty and of the rights that God has given to all men, lest in the abuse of your God-given authority, you become liable to God’s wrath. To those who desire to compel us to obey the secular State rather than God, we respectfully, but firmly say (like the three Hebrews who refused to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s golden statue), “We have no need to answer you in this matter. The God we serve is able to save us from you, and He will rescue us from your hand. But even if He does not, we want you to know that we will not serve your gods or worship the idols you have set up.” (Dan. 3:16-18)

I encourage you to read the whole thing and sign if you feel so inclined. 

The Church has been the most successful movement against arbitrary tyrants throughout history. The more the Church speaks up, the more we can challenge evil, and the more likely we are to see totalitarian efforts fail. 

Praise God, more pastors are taking a stand. 

A Tremendous Legal Win After Eight-Year Legal Battle

“…imagine going through eight years of hell and being the subject of 41 legal complaints by a serial litigant and hater.”

Bill Muehlenberg


Many have warned that when the secular left radicals get their way, things fall apart very quickly and thoroughly. The path from prohibition to permission to promotion does not take long at all. When a culture and its legal apparatus push extremist ideologies and lifestyles, it does not end with some happy status quo. It ends with those who dare to differ being pursued, persecuted, penalised and punished.

My site has documented case after case of this occurring over the years. And often the worst offenders here are the homosexual militants and the trans activists. They do not want to be left alone to do their thing. They want full societal endorsement and celebration of their lifestyle. And they want the full force of the law brought to bear on any recalcitrants who have the temerity to differ even in the least.

So many of these tragic stories are found on my site – and elsewhere. One champion who has been through hell and back is the subject of no less than 22 articles – in part or in total – on CultureWatch. I refer to Queensland Christian, Bernard Gaynor.

In one of my articles from 2019, I spoke of the terrible persecution he has endured not just from the sexual militants but even the Australian Defence Force! As I said in that piece:

If we think that deleting a few paragraphs here or altering a few sentences there will somehow placate the militants, we are living in dreamland. Books like mine are totally anathema to them. It is NOT a question of making some changes – or even many changes: it is a question of having the book renounced, apologised for, and then destroyed. That would be the endgame of the militants. They are not into compromise – they are into complete dominance. I mentioned to these folks that they should read the latest writings of Bernard Gaynor. The Queensland Christian has known hardcore persecution from the militants for years now, and it has been enormously costly for him. 

He has endured so much for so long. Indeed, imagine going through eight years of hell and being the subject of 41 legal complaints by a serial litigant and hater. Yet after all this misery there is some good news to be shared. Bernard has just posted a statement on “END OF EIGHT YEARS OF LGBT LEGAL PERSECUTION” and it is wonderful indeed. Let me share parts of it with you:

On Friday, 2 September 2022, the New South Wales Local Court dismissed all remaining complaints lodged against me by serial litigant and homosexual activist, Gary Burns, under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW). As such, I now have an unblemished 41-0 record after eight years of farcical litigation against me.

This persecution has been aided and abetted by the State of New South Wales, the New South Wales Attorney General, the New South Wales Crown Solicitor’s Office, the New South Wales Department of Communities and Justice, Anti-Discrimination New South Wales and the Attorneys General of Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia.

I have faced a system which has claimed legally untenable retrospective and extra-territorial powers. And this system has rubber-stamped complaints so absurd that they involved Gary Burns claiming that he was vilified by his own comments which he left on my Facebook page.

Yet, despite the enormous resources of state that have been arrayed against me, not a single finding has been made against me. It is a fitting epitaph to the sheer incompetence of each of the bureaucrats involved in perpetuating this injustice. 

Nothing highlights the corrupt processes of the New South Wales anti-discrimination industry in this eight-year saga more than these facts:

– The only person who has admitted to breaking the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW) is the former Acting President of Anti-Discrimination New South Wales and current Chief Operating Officer of the New South Wales Bar Association, Elizabeth Wing. In September 2016 Elizabeth Wing admitted that she had failed in her duties and responsibilities to provide me with progress reports of her ‘investigations’ under S.90C of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW). 

– The only organisation found to have acted unlawfully is the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal which was found by the New South Wales Court of Appeal in 2017 and the High Court of Australia in 2018 to be acting inconsistently with Chapter III of the Constitution of Australia.

– The only person who has apologised and withdrawn any statement in these proceedings is Magistrate Susan McIntyre who unreservedly withdrew and apologised for unprovoked and derogatory slurs she had made about my solicitor and, by extension, me during these most recent proceedings.

– In the course of these and other proceedings, Acting Judge Nancy Hennessy (a Deputy President of the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal) was forced to recuse herself from matters involving Gary Burns after uncontested evidence was presented to the Tribunal that she was seen meeting with him.

– A Tipstaff in the New South Wales Supreme Court, Thomas Poberezny-Lynch, used an unofficial and private email address to communicate with Gary Burns. How this email address was obtained and what communications were made with it have never been disclosed. 

– During this and other associated litigation, Gary Burns has been found by the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal to have engaged in conduct constituting contempt of court and to have lodged vexatious complaints. He is now also bankrupt. But he remained free to continue his persecution of me.

He continues:

I stand here today, after eight years of attack, proud that I have been courageous enough to describe this behaviour for what it is: perverted, degenerate and evil. I note that all of this has occurred under the cowardly and craven watch of the supposedly ‘conservative’ New South Wales Liberal government. It has nothing but my contempt. Its pretence of conservatism is nothing more than a charade. 

It is obvious to anyone who has paid the slightest attention to these proceedings that the only reason they have been allowed to continue is because the New South Wales anti-discrimination industry has basely and maliciously abused its power in order to protect and promote shameful evil. All involved are dishonourable and reprehensible. And all involved will one day answer to God, who will provide perfect justice. I look forward to that day.

And he finishes with these words:

I call on the media who would gloatingly publish stories of my destruction to do its duty and shine a light on corruption, abuse of power and evil. For years, mainstream media has peddled fake news that Christians persecute homosexuals. Nothing is further from the truth. It is Christians who face real persecution: the loss of their jobs, their livelihoods, their homes, their reputations, their schools and even the destruction of their churches in the face of this merciless onslaught of evil which has already cowed so much of our society into silence. 

I thank all those who have supported, encouraged and generously donated to assist me over the past eight years. I can truly say, without your help, that I would not have been able to defend myself. This victory as much yours as it is mine. I thank my wife, Elle, who has stood steadfastly by my side. She is the real and silent hero in this battle. Most of all, I thank God who has protected me from the evils I have faced, despite my own failings. 

And on the social media he has a terrific picture of himself, his wife, a few friends and his legal aide having a quiet celebration in a restaurant a few days ago. Under it he says this:

Thanks be to God for this victory! And at lunch time today I enjoyed a glass of bubbly with my solicitor and Marella, Anne and Beverly who all came in for the judgement. Most importantly, I shared a glass with my wonderful wife Elle who has been my rock throughout this 8 year battle. 

And next week it is time to work on costs. Burns has not been ordered to pay costs for a single one of his failed complaints. Unfortunately, it seems clear to me that the NSW Local Court is intent on protecting him once again. I hope we can change this. Thank you for your help, generosity, support and prayers – without them I would not have been able to defend myself today!

Indeed, so many of you have prayed for Bernard and contributed to his legal funds. Thank you for this. He is indeed a champion. There have been some other brave fighters who have not capitulated to the hyper-left mobs. But they are few and far between.

How many of you could have stood strong over eight years and with 40 legal challenges? Most would have given up and given in. Most would have put up the white flag of surrender. But not Bernard. He stood tall. Bless you, mate – you are a hero.

Proof that Israel Found Serious Safety Problems with the Covid Vaccines, then Deliberately Covered it Up

By Steve Kirsch ( September 5, 2022

Israel didn’t start to gather safety data until a year into the vaccine program. They gathered 6 months worth of data and found that the vaccines weren’t safe so they lied to the world about it.

This is the most IMPORTANT article I’ve written to date

This is the most important article on my Substack (which has over 700 articles). This one article should bring down the house of cards if there is just one honest person in a position of authority in the world.

The single most important point is this:

We now have proof of:

  1. Serious side-effects of unknown duration, perhaps irreparable
  2. Causality: these were not just “coincidences”
  3. Government corruption to hide these harms
  4. Correlation between vaccine doses and deaths from multiple independent studies on multiple independent datasets
  5. No interest in seeing the expert report or the video from any mainstream news media, any member of the mainstream medical community, any lawmaker, any public health official anywhere in the world.

The precautionary principle of medicine now demands an immediate halt to the COVID vaccination program.

The key facts in a nutshell:

  1. The Israeli health authority knew the vaccines were harming people: the side effects of the vaccine are neither mild nor short term. In fact, in 65% of the neurological cases that mentioned duration, the symptoms are all on-going.
  2. They also established causality: the side effects were caused by the vaccine. This is something no one else had been able to establish before.
  3. They don’t know how serious the harm is because they only looked at the data for the top five categories. Cardiovascular was #6. So they have only looked at a fraction of the data.
  4. The researchers do not know the prevalence of these serious side effects because they were just provided with the numerator, not the denominator (similar to VAERS).
  5. The Israeli authorities deliberately covered up the safety issues and hid it from the world, issuing a false report essentially saying “there is nothing new to see here folks, move along.”
  6. The only good news in all of this is that Israel protected Palestinians from getting this very unsafe vaccine. That was very humane of the Israelis.
  7. The Israeli people aren’t stupid. They have figured out the vaccines are “unsafe and ineffective” (my new tagline for the vaccines… what do you think? catchy isn’t it?) and are no longer complying with government directives to be vaccinated. Just 2.4% of the Israeli population is “in compliance” as of Sept 2, 2022:
  8. As of September 4, 2022 no one is being held accountable and everyone is ignoring this bombshell story:
    1. There is a press blackout on coverage in Israel of this. The Israel media refuses to even look at the evidence.
    2. Nobody in Israel is being held accountable for this corruption. There isn’t even an investigation.
    3. Nobody in the worldwide medical community is speaking out about the corruption either despite the fact that it affects people everywhere in the world.
    4. There is no coverage of this in any worldwide mainstream media.
    5. No public official, public health official, or mainstream media anywhere in the world is even calling for an investigation, nobody wants to see the original expert report, and nobody wants to see the safety data they gathered.
    6. Someone translated an earlier version of this article into Hebrew and posted it on mainstream media in Israel. It was removed in less than 1 hour. This shows how important censorship is. If this story leaks, it’s all over.
    7. We have the full video and we have the slides that were presented; use the Contact Me link if you are a health authority and want to see it before it is released to the public.
    8. Just to be sure the CDC knows about this, I just emailed hundreds of people at the CDC who are involved in the COVID vaccines (including Rochelle Walensky) to let them know that the report and video are available. All they have to do is hit reply. I bet not a single person at the CDC wants to see it. We are about to find out just how deep the corruption runs at the CDC.
    9. This isn’t surprising that they ignore this. All negative data on the vaccine is ignored. For example, when I discovered that young Canadian doctors were dying at a more than 12X normal after the second booster, the Canadian Medical Association, whose job it is to to be an advocate for the health of doctors, refused to comment. I sent five requests and they ignored all requests. They should change their website to say that they are an advocate for the drug companies, not the health of doctors.


  1. The Israel Ministry of Health (MoH) took 18 months from the launch date of the vaccine before they looked at the COVID vaccine safety data to see what it said.
  2. They only started collecting safety data in December 2021, one year after rolling out the vaccines to the public. Few people knew this.
  3. In December 2021, they tasked an outside expert panel led by Prof. Mati Berkowitz, a leading Israeli expert on pharmacology and toxicology from Asaf Harofe hospital, to examine the safety data they collected over the next 6 months (from early December to the end of May, 2022).
  4. The panel presented their findings to MoH personnel on or about Jun 6, 2022 in a Zoom call that was secretly recorded. They found that the COVID vaccines were much more dangerous to people than the world authorities admitted. They found serious adverse events that were never disclosed by Pfizer or any world government. These adverse events were also not found to be short term as the public was told.
  5. They also determined causality, something no other world health authority has ever been willing to do (because other governments never looked at the data either). Causality was both obvious and easy to prove using the re-challenge data that was collected (you can’t do this using the US VAERS data, for example).
  6. In short, the panel determined that the government was misleading the people of Israel.
  7. We still don’t know the whole extent of how dangerous the vaccines are because the outside team only looked at the top 5 most frequently cited events.
  8. Both the Israeli authorities and scientists analyzing the Ministry of Health (MoH) data acted to cover up the harms by releasing a fabricated report to the public to make the vaccine look perfectly safe and claim that there was nothing wrong..
  9. It is only thanks to the efforts of one courageous individual who released the recording of the full Zoom meeting between the MoH and their expert panel that we now know what was said at that meeting and what the data actually showed. Otherwise the world would still be in the dark.
  10. Leaders of our “trusted institutions” all over the world said absolutely nothing after the news broke on August 20, 2022. This suggests that there is widespread corruption in the medical community, government agencies, among public health officials, the mainstream media, and social media companies worldwide: they will not acknowledge any event that goes against the mainstream narrative.
  11. This is a level of corruption that is unprecedented. The atrocities here are clear cut. Everyone should be speaking out and calling for a full investigation and fully evaluating the safety data collected by the Israel government.

Transcending Fear-Surgeon General of Florida Speaks Out

By Joseph Mercola (, 22nd August, 2022

In this interview, Dr. Joe Ladapo discusses his book, “Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health,” and how he ended up being appointed surgeon general of Florida. Ladapo was working at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center when, in May 2020, Gov. Gavin Newsom first locked down the state.

“I witnessed the mayhem in the hospital,” Ladapo says. “I’d never seen anything like it in terms of how frantic people were, and how frantic the leadership was. From there, my wife and I were chatting about it constantly and we had a different take than the take that UCLA and most everyone else was pushing.

So, I wrote an article. It was accepted in USA Today. I shared it with one of the members of The Wall Street Journal editorial board, Holman Jenkins, who’d also been writing about COVID in a way that was not similar to how other people were writing, and he liked it. Their team liked it.

I wrote another article a few weeks later about the lockdowns. That was the first of several articles that ended up being published there, which I’m grateful for because it was like going into the Twilight Zone — like you think about those two years, or almost two years, of deep COVID theater.”

Uprooting Trauma-Based Fear

Ladapo’s childhood was less than idyllic. His father, himself a victim of childhood abuse, did not shy away from corporal punishment. “One of the tough things about trauma is that it disconnects people from themselves,” Ladapo says.

Ladapo was also a victim of sexual abuse by a babysitter when he was 4 years old. In adulthood, he was able to heal the scars, “but I only got the opportunity by chance and really by [God’s] grace,” he says. His wife played a big part in that healing, as she kept encouraging him to seek help. The final breakthrough happened shortly before the pandemic:

“We finally were having kids and these problems that I was having were driving my poor wife nuts … The kids were only making it more complicated because kids tend to bring up stuff too for people that they haven’t dealt with.

So, it was like literally at the lowest point — which happened right before the pandemic — [my wife] Brianna told me she found someone she thought I should see … His name is Christopher Maher and he’s a former Navy Seal. He was the last guy I worked with and I don’t need to work with anyone else because of him.

Basically, he used this combination of Chinese medicine principles — Chinese meridian theory and stuff related to Chi — involving physical manipulations and other types of exercises and activities to help free me from the effects [of] my traumatic experience with the babysitter; stuff related to my family … and helped me get free of those things.

It was all essentially grounded in fear … I was literally reborn. I don’t understand it. It’s the closest thing to a miracle that I’ve ever experienced. But it happened, and it happened in December of 2019, right before the pandemic.

Then the pandemic rolled around, and had I not had that experience, I would never have been able to do the things that I did; being able to see clearly and to do things that, in the past, I would’ve been too afraid to do or too muddled in my own personal BS to be able to see and identify.”

Fear Is a Prerequisite for Effective Brainwashing

In short, in the process of erasing these deep-seated, largely unconscious fears, Ladapo also became “immune” to the irrational brainwashing propaganda that erupted during the pandemic and the social pressures surrounding it.

“It would’ve been impossible for me to have a clear vision and be able to stay clearly on a goal, or be able to stay within myself when everyone’s throwing all this junk at me, as you certainly know firsthand, all the junk that [comes at you] when you’re sharing a message that people don’t like.

Really, what that means is that they’re threatened by it. When people are threatened by something, they throw their junk on you in terms of their projections. And I would never have been able to withstand any of that and remain within myself if I had not had that experience,” Ladapo says.

He then goes on to talk about what he saw happening in California during the height of the pandemic.

“California was quite miserable. The leadership were pouring the Kool-Aid … and everyone was drinking it. You have to stay inside. You can’t socialize with people. You must wear a mask. All of this stuff is very serious, especially for the kids.

I wanted to burn down these stupid little barriers they put around the [local] playground. It was just so frustrating. And they removed the rims on the basketball courts. It was maddening, honestly … I almost wanted to cry sometimes because it was such an assault on people’s humanity …

I’m thinking about it and it brings tears to my eyes because it was such harm with zero benefit and real harm. You know, these are things that are part of the fabric that connect humans to other humans.

Anyone who’s played pickup basketball knows that. Strangers become friends and bonds are made. Those were just examples of the general syndrome that California health officials were propagating and were trying to get everyone else to buy into …

It was sad that people did that to other people; and it was also sad that so many people were willing to go along with it. Truly some people thought it was the right thing to do, but a lot of people knew that it wasn’t the right thing to do. And it made me sad that they still went along with it.”

Responsibilities of the State Surgeon General

In addition to the federally appointed surgeon general, five states (Arkansas, California, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida) also have a state surgeon general, who is the operational head and senior spokesperson on public health. Ladapo was appointed to the position by Gov. Ron DeSantis in September 2021.

As surgeon general, Ladapo oversees the Department of Health in Florida, which has upward of 15,000 to 16,000 employees. All 67 counties have their own county health departments, and the Florida Department of Health works with and oversees all of them. He also works closely with the governor and his staff.

In contrast, the federal surgeon general is more of a figurehead, and during the pandemic, the surgeon general has basically just promoted the official narrative, rather than making real assessments about what is truly best for public health. As noted by Ladapo:

“We had two years of hardcore pandemic and to the best of my knowledge, not a single word about exercise, about weight loss, sun exposure. Things that we think, or very clearly know, are important factors in helping you live longer and survive, not just this virus, but other viruses and other conditions.

Talk about a wasted opportunity. I mean, it’s absurd that that wasn’t a major part of the public health conversation over the last two or two and a half years. It’s a real shame, and it’s a mistake that we’re not making here in Florida …

I’m a huge believer in personal empowerment and personal health. So, one of the things I appreciate about the work that you do is that you encourage people to take as much responsibility for their own health as possible. It’s so important. Prevention is really important and doing things that can prevent the onset of disease is huge.

And you don’t do that by staying in your house, not being around other people or wearing stupid things over your mouth. That’s not going to make you a stronger, healthier person.”

Florida’s Response to Monkeypox

The World Health Organization’s director-general recently made the unilateral decision to declare monkeypox a public health emergency of international concern, even though his advisory committee voted 9 to 6 against it. President Biden followed suit and declared it a public health emergency as well.

The declaration of yet another pandemic was predictable. The question is: Will the people of the world allow themselves to be fooled into irrational countermeasures that don’t work a second time?

In Florida, the response to monkeypox involves identifying areas with higher rates of transmission, and areas with higher rates of high-risk individuals, and providing them education about how the infection is transmitted. Florida is also offering the monkeypox vaccine to individuals who really want it.

“That’s basically the plan,” Ladapo says. “What we’ve seen is this playbook at the federal level, and at some states, is sort of disconnected from reality. So, for example, in Florida, as in the rest of the nation, something like 99% of the cases are in men and almost all of those are in gay men. It may not remain that way, that remains to be seen, [but in the meantime] we are just having very plain public health messaging about that.

Unfortunately, people are so wrapped up in their politics that … they can’t speak plainly. There’s been all this debate about talking to people about their sexual risk factors. It’s been so convoluted. I mean, I can’t even keep up with it. What we’ve done is we’ve been very clear in our language.

And the thing is, if you’re not judgmental toward people, if you’re not biased against people, it’s a lot easier just to be honest and truthful and not worry about how it’s going to be received exactly, or if you’re going to offend someone or make someone think that you’re trying to say something about who they are, and we’re not. We’ve just been very clear about what the risk factors are.

Our strategy is to do the best we can to help reduce the transmission. So, we’ve been very straightforward about that and not pushing the hysteria and all the political junk that we’re seeing come up.”

The Blood Sport of Modern Politics

When asked what has surprised him the most after taking on the role as Florida’s surgeon general, Ladapo replies:

“Probably the politics has been the biggest surprise … it’s a blood sport and it’s really treated that way in terms of the politics and the games that are played, the spinning of words, the creation of words and the creation of narratives, the outright false statements.

And how willing some people are to say whatever they want to say, irrespective of what the truth is … What you find in politics, which I see firsthand, is self-interest. That’s like the name of the game.”

Parents Overwhelmingly Reject COVID Jab for Their Children

On the other side of the coin, what he enjoys the most is the ability to “push something forward that you think is the right thing to do, and to be able to do it in a way that you feel was effective, particularly when you’re disrupting some essentially false narrative or false beliefs that that have come in.”

“I get so much satisfaction from the fact that that we just completely rejected all of the lies that were being pushed about the COVID-19 vaccines in children, specifically healthy children.

I’m so satisfied, so pleased and so grateful that I had a platform from which I could exclaim something opposite of that total mirage. I mean, it was a completely specious story that the CDC and the federal administration was trying to push …

And honestly, it really lightens my heart that so many parents see it for what it is, which is a total lie — this notion that children need this [COVID shot]. The data are quite weak. None of the clinical randomized trial data show a clinical benefit. There’s not a single study that I’ve seen that shows a clinical benefit in healthy children, even in the over 5-year-old age group.

It’s been hard for me personally, just watching the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and the federal leadership spit out pure lies, false statements, and unfortunately a lot of people gobbled it up and interpreted it as the truth. So, it’s very refreshing to see parents say, ‘No, I don’t think so.’”

Can Public Health Establishment Survive?

The lies and deceit by our public health agencies have been so egregious and so blatant over the last couple of years, I find it hard to believe they’ll survive in the long term. The damage they’ve done to their credibility is, in my view, irreparable. Ladapo agrees:

“You’re absolutely right. A lot of confidence has been lost … Still from the studies I’ve seen, a good amount of Democrats and Liberals still think everything that was done was the right thing. So, it’s interesting.

I don’t know if [health agencies] are going to regain [trust and credibility] back during my lifetime. I mean, people are not going to forget what happened in terms of all the egregious violations of human rights and human sovereignty over these past couple years.

That’s actually part of what my book is about — [the] central theme … is shaking off the BS … Stress and trauma have effects on people, and then … people have a hard time seeing straight, seeing the truth, and standing up when they do recognize that something wrong is happening.

But those things have to happen for someone to take real responsibility, and accepting responsibility for transgressions; only that will be accepted by the public. Short of that, you will never re-earn people’s trust.”

Ladapo also agrees there’s been a total whitewashing of safety concerns surrounding the COVID jabs, and that we really need to get to the bottom of why disability rates, all-cause mortality and sudden adult deaths have skyrocketed since the introduction of these experimental shots.

More Information

I highly recommend reading Ladapo’s book, “Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health.” In it, he discusses his own experience with trauma-based fear, his journey of recovery, and how you can address challenges in a way that is consistent with who you actually desire to be.

“That’s a major theme of the book,” he says, “and everyone has their own journey. I think I was lucky because I ended up finding my way. I was looking to get better, but not quite going down the right way, and I hope the book can help more people who are on that journey find the right way.”

He also, of course, discusses the COVID pandemic, and how public health decisions based on fear have hurt more than they’ve helped.

“I have a chapter about hydroxychloroquine, for example, and an unbiased look at the evidence there. I talk about how to approach public health decision-making and how that approach would have averted some of the worst decisions we made. Probably the worst [was] school closures.

I talk a little bit about my friend, Dr. Simone Gold … [a] good old-fashioned political prisoner, a doctor who only tried to help people during her career and disagrees with some mainstream ideas. She’s a good friend of mine and I appreciate her commitment to freedom.”

Risking It All Opens the Door to Divine Providence

Fear can make you make horrible decisions, and I reckon many were fooled into taking the COVID jab for fear of getting sick and dying, losing their job, losing their career or any number of other fear-based reasons. Without doubt, having to make the decision between taking a potentially fatal or disabling medical therapy you don’t want or need, or getting fired and losing your retirement benefits is a tough one.

It’s a decision no one should ever have to make, yet many millions have now had to do just that. Sadly, the trap many fall into is the belief that they can’t overcome the negative consequences of choosing freedom and saying no to tyranny.

In reality, when you stand up for what is right and true, your life has a tendency to vector into opportunities you would never have encountered otherwise. I have a deep sadness about the people whose fears didn’t allow them to make that difficult choice and experience the joy of finding and forging a new path for themselves.

“I feel the same,” Ladapo says. “It is a tragedy. There were a few people who were like, ‘Hell, no. I’m not going to do this.’ But a lot of people felt they didn’t have a choice and they didn’t want to open that door.You’re right, it’s essentially providence, in terms of where your life takes you when you make a choice like that. On its face, you do your arithmetic and it doesn’t make sense. But it’s God’s path and it’s a gracious [divine] path.”

When A Mother Abandons Her Eggs

“All you have to do is Google child care person arrested and you’ll find, just like the Ostrich that walks away, you put your kids in danger of being trampled or crushed when you’re not present. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s not in your control when it does and when it doesn’t, is it?”


Job 39:13-18 says: “The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, but are they the pinions and plumage of love? For she leaves her eggs to the earth and lets them be warmed on the ground, forgetting that a foot may crush them and that the wild beast may trample them. She deals cruelly with her young, as if they were not hers; though her labor be in vain, yet she has no fear, because God has made her forget wisdom and given her no share in understanding. When she rouses herself to flee, she laughs at the horse and his rider.”

This is an interesting passage, because if you read up about why Ostriches abandon their eggs observers note that they don’t actually abandon their eggs. They appear to abandon them, it looks like they are abandoning them. But really, the Ostrich leaves them behind for all sorts of other reasons, “good” reasons, “necessary” reasons. In other words, the Ostrich will sometimes abandon her eggs, but she “has her reasons,” which is how it is explained.

But to walk away from the young while they are still little, from the Scripture’s point of view, is still abandonment. Because while they are out of the mother hen’s reach, they are vulnerable to being crushed or trampled. That is why she deals cruelly with them. This doesn’t even have to happen every time, it just needs to happen some of the time to be true. 

The analogy with daycare is obvious. All you have to do is Google child care person arrested and you’ll find, just like the Ostrich that walks away, you put your kids in danger of being trampled or crushed when you’re not present. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s not in your control when it does and when it doesn’t, is it?

But for those of you who think it’s rare, note research shows, that in a different way, every kid put in daycare is being harmed:


The “Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development,” supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), said that children who spend time in day care may be more aggressive than children who spend no time in day care. According to the study, the number of hours a child spends in day care also affects his aggression levels; the more hours he is there, the more aggressively he behaves. However, some reject the statistical correlation as too small to be presumed a fact.”


In a study conducted by the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota, children under age 3 who spend time in day care may experience more stress than children of the same age who are not in day care. Children in the study exhibited higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, when they were in the middle of full days at day care; the cortisol levels went down when they went back home. Those children were described as being more shy, a trait which could cause stress in a social environment. However, day care might not be the only cause of the stress; children inevitably must participate in some social environments once they reach elementary school-age.

Diminished Bonding

Young children who spend time in day care may bond less with their mothers than children who stay home with their mothers, according to the NICHD study. However, the results were preliminary, and the link may not be significant enough to necessitate parents being concerned about their children’s welfare. Researchers suggest that parents who send their children to day care should focus on finding a high-quality day care rather than fretting about diminished bonding.

Aggressive and Disruptive Behavior

Children who are in day care for a year or more have been shown to be more disruptive in class as long as into the sixth grade, according to a New York Times report on the Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development. Even children in high-quality centers were shown to exhibit disruptive behavior. However, children in high-quality centers were also shown to score better on standardized tests. A study by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, reported by CBS, also found that children who spend long hours in day care are at increased risk of becoming aggressive, in addition to developing other behavior problems.”

The article misleads people by noting you should choose better quality daycare. But the research did not distinguish between types of daycare, but the amount of time spent in daycare. 

As other research shows:

The raging debates around maternal guilt, work/family balance, money and childrearing often drown out scientific insights into the developmental impact of day care. But the latest findings, from a huge, long-term government study, are worrisome. They show that kids who spend long hours in day care have behavior problems that persist well into elementary school. About 26 percent of children who spend more than 45 hours per week in day care go on to have serious behavior problems at kindergarten age. In contrast, only 10 percent of kids who spend less than 10 hours per week have equivalent problems.

The worst part about this is that it is known that daycare has a bad effect on kids, and it has been known for some time. But this research is partially kept from mothers: 

Developmental psychologists are sweeping this information under the rug, hoping studies will churn out better data soon, argues Jay Belsky, a child development researcher at London’s Birbeck College and a longtime critic of his fellow scientists. He contends that the field of developmental psychology is monopolized by women with a “liberal progressive feminist” bias. “Their concern is to not make mothers feel bad,” he says…

…Belsky has been outspoken on the issue for decades. In the 1980s, his studies showed that children spending long hours in day care had higher levels of aggression than those raised by their mothers. Detractors excoriated him then for using bad science to criticize working women.

It is easy for data to be manipulated. But consistent data over the long term, which disagrees with prevailing public attitudes, and which I can anecdotally say has been observed by people I know is much harder to explain away. The article then notes that Belsky’s female colleagues disagree with him (obviously). But then notes this: 

Although Belsky’s harsh words haven’t won him many friends, some researchers think he has a point. Kathy McCartney, an education professor at Harvard and another NICHD day care researcher, concedes the aggression results are significant, but won’t offer cautionary advice without more research. “So far it is looking like he’s right,” says McCartney, who criticized Belsky’s claims in the past. “Long hours in child care are associated with behavior problems.”

This woman notes the solutions aren’t obvious. To which I respond: the solution is called mothers raising their kids in the home, like God intended. But you also need to mix this with rejecting avarice, greed, and covetousness. Because these are big reasons why so many women work. 

Many people say they can’t afford to live on one income. This is probably true for some. But for many what they really mean is that they cannot afford the house, car and lifestyle they want with only one income. In other words, they have “reasons,” like the Ostrich.  Wow. Modern woman deals cruelly with her young. Note parents: one day those kids will be deciding where you end up in aged care. That lack of bonding might come back to bite. I don’t think you need data or research to foresee that. 

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (96)

Do you know how many people have been killed worldwide by their governments from the COVID shots?

It’s around 12M. That is 40X the number of Americans who were killed in World War II. It’s more than double the number killed by COVID.

Steve Kirsch (, August 19th, 2022

Margaret Anna Alice asked if anyone could estimate the global death toll from the COVID shots. In my opinion, a reasonable estimate is to divide the number of doses by 1,000. If you do that for the 600M doses delivered in the US, you get 600,000 deaths which is right in the ballpark.

A more conservative number is to divide the number of doses by 2,500. This is the number Mathew Crawford estimated from global data: 411 deaths per Million doses. Earlier, I offered a $1M reward to anyone who found a significant error in his work. No takers. This is documented on my Substack and in my Twitter stream, but of course everything I tweeted was deleted by Twitter as being unsafe. A free $1M no strings attached. Nobody accepted.

So that conservative estimate gets you to 5M killed (only 16X the number killed in World War II). We are approaching the 6M Jews killed in the Holocaust over a period of 12 years.

But we are killing people worldwide at a rate at least 6X faster than the Germans did. We are killing nearly close to 10,000 people every single day (the latest rate was roughly 8.46 million doses a day).

Interestingly, this is not self-limiting because 385,000 babies are born every day. So the killing can go on indefinitely, even if the birth rate drops by 90% due to the shots. In case you were wondering. I just thought I’d point that out.

Dose data was from this Bloomberg article: More Than 12.4 Billion Shots Given: Covid-19 Vaccine Tracker.


We are killing an awful lot of people, but world leaders are looking the other way and saying nothing while all of us watch the high number of death reports in the media of people who died “unexpectedly” and hear no explanation from the medical community or the CDC.

We are supposed to trust that they have things well in hand, even though they won’t appear on camera in front of anyone who doesn’t have scripted, pre-approved questions. The vaccine is never mentioned in any of these unexplained death reports.

Yet people all over the world have noticed that these unexpected deaths are ONLY happening to the vaccinated. Hmmmm…. I wonder why? The CDC will not require medical examiners to do the proper tests to make the association. They could easily do that. But they won’t. That tells you everything you need to know about the corruption.

So it will be an unexplained rise in unexplained deaths due to unknown causes because nobody in the mainstream media is ever going to admit they were wrong and ask a few unscripted questions.

Even Donald Trump is afraid to speak out about what is going on. He remains silent too. This is why we have no debates, only censorship.

Hundreds of people at the CDC are aware of what is going on, but they aren’t going to speak out or they will lose their job. Even the people who have resigned are remaining silent. It’s really stunning. So the killing continues unabated.

Robert Kennedy Jr. Exposes Big Pharma’s Plot to Destroy Us

By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. ( August 8, 2022

In November 2021, Robert Kennedy Jr. released his epochal The Real Antony Fauci, the definitive exposé of how the monster Fauci has for decades been plotting to impose vaccine tyranny not only on America but throughout the world. The Covid-“vaccine” hoax is only the latest episode in this plot, and I summarized the vital core of Kennedy’s case in a review that appeared on LRC.

One thing about Kennedy’s magnificent crusade may have surprised many LRC readers. Kennedy is and remains a liberal Democrat, and few people of that political persuasion oppose Covid tyranny. To the contrary, they say that “science” requires everybody to be masked and vaccinated, and the more lockdowns the better. Kennedy discovered this to his cost. The name “Kennedy” is one of honor among Democrats, but this did not stop the cancel culture elite from denouncing him and trying to block his access to the media.

Kennedy has responded to the campaign against him by his former political allies with exemplary courage. He has distilled the essence of his research over many years into vaccine tyranny and the evil forces behind it in a short book that you can read in a couple of hours: A Letter to Liberals from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Censorship and Covid: An Attack on Science and American Ideals.  

Kennedy says this about the efforts to destroy dissent from Covid Tyranny: “According to an August 18, 2021, Pew Research Center Survey, 65% of Democrats currently support government censorship of unauthorized opinions. That astonishing result suggests that Democrats have lost their faith not only in their party traditions, but also in democracy. The majority of Democrats appear to believe that the Demos—the people—can no longer be trusted to govern themselves and that it is, therefore, permissible for elites to manipulate the public with propaganda, and even to censor information that might infect the population with dangerous thoughts.

Liberals have long agreed that censorship of dissent is the emblem of totalitarian systems. The new strategy of silencing government critics like myself is therefore repugnant to liberalism’s foundational values and is clearly offensive to the American Constitution’s guarantee of free speech. . . the ‘Lockdown Left’ has abandoned the discipline of evidence-based medicine. Instead of scientific citation, they rely on appeals to often undeserving authorities who have manufactured ‘scientific consensus’ by cherry-picking data to support a pre-determined policy.

Sanctimonious bromides to ‘follow the science,’ ‘trust the experts,’ most often mean blind dogmatic trust in the official—and often whimsical—pronouncements of amoral pharmaceutical companies and their venal government vassals at captive agencies like CDC, FDA, NIH, and WHO. Unable to defend the scientific underpinnings of their ideology in debate, liberals rely on book bans and an arsenal of coercive muzzling strategies including deplatforming, delicensing, doxxing, gaslighting, defunding, retracting, marginalizing, and vilifying scientists, physicians, journalists, and vaccine-injured Americans who complied but now refuse to toe the official line.

The hallmark of Lockdown Liberalism is a bullying form of censorship called ‘cancel culture,’ which disappears not just the heretical language, but also the heretic who uttered it.” As you can see, Kennedy doesn’t pull his punches.

What has Kennedy discovered that the Left wants silenced? For one thing, the Covid “vaccine” doesn’t cure people: It kills them. “With the rising unpopularity of mandates, governments are rushing to declare the pandemic ended, often assigning credit to mass vaccination. However, there is meagre scientific evidence that vaccines reduced COVID infections or deaths. To the contrary, there is abundant evidence that mass vaccination had only very brief efficacy against COVID, including the now-undeniable fact, summarized in the February issue of the European Journal of Epidemiology, that ‘Countries with a higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.’ [Data based on CDC COVID Tracker and the New York Times Interactive Tracking the Coronavirus.]

Consistent with this global pattern, US deaths attributed to COVID in 2022 were—after mass vaccination—higher than they were in 2020, before vaccination. Aegon Insurance reported a 2021 third-quarter rise of 40% in US COVID-19 deaths among people under 65 years old, ‘the highest percentage in any quarter since the pandemic began.’ In March 2022, South Korea, one of the most vaccinated nations on Earth, reported record-high COVID infections and mortalities following its aggressive national booster program. COVID deaths in March in Korea exceeded all prior fatalities combined.

Likewise, Australia, another mass vaccination leader, saw record-breaking COVID- 19 outbreaks in 2022 with deaths 1700% higher than at the start of the pandemic. The tendency of COVID vaccinations to increase COVID illness and mortality is a predictable outcome of the well-documented phenomenon of vaccine-induced ‘pathogenic priming’. . . Despite the global propaganda effort to persuade us otherwise, the experience of Korea and Australia is the norm.”

In the face of the deadly effects of the “vaccine,” the Left wants to force everybody to take it. If you refuse, you become a “non-person.” “The irrational stigmatizing and outright bigotry is real and global. Today, American hospitals routinely deny lifesaving care to Americans based upon their vaccination status. In June 2022, for example, a Vanderbilt University Hospital heart transplant surgeon refused to add a mortally ill six-month-old baby boy named August to the transplant recipient list because the parents declined to fully vaccinate him, including the experimental COVID-19 shot, based on medical and religious grounds.

An agreement was eventually reached after much public outcry, and now baby August is currently on the transplant list to receive a heart. Should not such a baseless act of brutality against infants offend every liberal conscience? Leading liberals endorse the exclusion of unvaccinated people from civil rights, including jobs, education, and transportation. The ACLU has called for expanded censorship to silence government critics (see David Cole in the New York Times). Even the left’s iconic guru Noam Chomsky has recommended the exclusion of the unvaccinated from society. As to food, he says, ‘Well, that’s actually their problem’”

Why does the “vaccine” kill people? One reason is that it weakens the body’s natural immune system and thus makes it less likely that people will be able to fight Covid off. “A British study published in Science in June 2022 sought to explain why vaccinated individuals are so much more susceptible to infection than the unvaccinated. The paper concludes that the vaccines alter the body’s all-important T-cell immunity by making T-cells hyper-vigilant toward the original—now extinct—Wuhan version of COVID-19 while diminishing their capacity to combat new variants like Omicron. Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson summarizes the findings in the Science paper thus: In other words, the mRNA shots appear to permanently wrongfoot the immune systems of people who receive them and bias them toward producing T-cells to attack variants that no longer exist, even though they never were infected with those variants at all. Vaccinologists call this phenomenon ‘original antigenic sin (OAS).’ Multiple sources have now confirmed OAS to be a serious problem for people who have taken COVID-19 vaccines. This is what you see when you look in the telescope and follow the science: government mandates of shoddily tested, heavily subsidized, rushed, zero-liability vaccines that are causing more harm than good.”

There is another way the “vaccine” kills people. If you are weak because of an illness you’re suffering from, the deadly jab can put you over the edge. “Over the 17 months following the rollout launch, CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a voluntary reporting system used by doctors, nurses, hospitals, and individuals, has recorded an astonishing 1,329,135 adverse events, of which 241,910 have been designated by the agencies as serious injuries (including a long list of cardiac, neurological, autoimmune, and reproductive system diseases, blood clots, strokes, myocarditis, seizures, paralysis, hepatitis, demyelinating diseases, Guillain-Barré syndrome, Bell’s palsy, herpes, vaginal lesions, diabetes, spontaneous abortions, heart attacks—including among six-year olds, genital ulcers—even in girls as young as five, and other devastating harms).”

If the “vaccine” is as bad as Kennedy says, and he has the data to prove it, why do many people ignore the facts? Kennedy says that the answer lies in a plot to suppress the truth.  When we look at what is behind the plot, we see the motive for this callous assault on human life: Big Pharma profits from it. “Most of my fellow liberals are unaware of all these alarming facts due to a highly orchestrated global pandemic of journalistic malpractice. At the outset of the pandemic, most of the world’s leading news organizations— BBC, Reuters, AP, AFD, CBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, Washington Post, Financial Times, Facebook, Google/YouTube, Microsoft, Twitter, and others—organized themselves into a collusive anti-democratic and anticompetitive cartel known as the Trusted News Initiative (TNI)—pledged to squelch and censor all reports about government COVID countermeasures that challenged official proclamations. . . [on]the official BBC website, where you can read, in the words of those conspirators, about how a group of companies that have historically competed against one another to reveal government untruths have now partnered in lockstep to promote the Government line and connived to work in concert to attack reporting that runs counter to officially proclaimed orthodoxies.

These organizations have successfully prevented virtually all honest journalism about vaccine injuries and vaccine failure from reaching the general public. This rigid compliance with Big Pharma’s propaganda agenda was, unfortunately, no great leap for mainstream media. In recent years, Pharma and its allies have made enormous investments to control American newsrooms and transform mainstream and social media, TV networks, and scientific journals into vessels for mercantile propaganda. The pharmaceutical industry is now the dominant advertiser on television, the funding source for over 75% of total advertising and an even greater percentage during news shows.

Furthermore, Pharma investor Bill Gates has distributed $319 million in recent years to news organizations specifically targeting ‘independent’ platforms like NPR, Public Television, The Independent, The Guardian, etc., that were historically less susceptible to pressure from commercial advertisers. Most alarming, since the pandemic’s outset, HHS has quietly paid out over a billion dollars (you read that right) to news outlets like CNN, the Washington Post, and the New York Times to promote COVID vaccines.

Those companies have obligingly published thousands of pieces extolling vaccination while actively censoring criticism of vaccines— or content that challenges Pharma profit taking—all without disclosing those compromising payoffs to their audiences. With this cash in hand, the US media have abandoned their traditional scepticism toward government edicts and abetted the censorship of nonconforming views. While the media abolish contrary opinion, they marginalize, vilify, and bully dissenters.”

The “vaccine” is particularly deadly when given to children. “On March 10, 2022, CDC admitted, in response to a Freedom of Information request, that it has not a single record of a healthy child under age 15 dying from COVID. Comprehensive research from Germany and the UK, and separate studies of US children by Johns Hopkins, Nature, and The Lancet, had all previously reaffirmed that healthy children have statistically zero risk of dying from COVID. Meanwhile, the vaccines impose a high risk (1/2,700) of causing myocarditis in 12–17-yearold boys.

A grim analysis of recent United Kingdom Office for National Statistics (ONS) data from January 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022, analyzed by Dr. Wayne Winston, PhD, professor emeritus of Decision Sciences at the University of Indiana’s Kelley School of Business, suggests that vaccinated children are more likely to die from any cause than unvaccinated children. The data show that vaccinated children ages 10 to 14 are 28 times more likely to die than unvaccinated, and the vaccinated 15-to-18-year-olds are 1.82 times more likely to die than unvaccinated teens of the same age.”

Kennedy sums up his message in this way, and we owe him a great debt for his efforts to enlighten the public: “As they demolish the Constitution to get at Trump and promote Pharma, liberals don’t seem to appreciate that the most vulnerable population will soon reap the whirlwind. And where will we all hide when an unleashed Exxon, Smithfield, Peabody, Monsanto, and Koch Energy have license to silence their critics with the help of Google, Facebook, and Twitter? As these soulless multinational behemoths deploy their new powers to silence dissent. . . and commoditize our children, they are fanning the toxic winds that will soon envelop America in . . .dystopian totalitarianism.”
