Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (83)

Leading doctors like writer Peter Breggin and his journalist wife Ginger, author of this piece, say Americans must fight for the Hippocratic Oath or lose all faith in medicine and U.S. sovereignty.

Peter and Ginger Breggin and Peter R. Breggin MD May 4
The agonizing and suspicious death of covid patient Grace Schara, 19, a young woman with Downs Syndrome, left her father searching for answers and a doctor acknowledging that “hospitals have become dangerous places for patients” as they abandon individual care for big pharma protocols.

The terror campaigns, the bullying, the arbitrary and ever-changing orders coming from the World Health Organization and our federal and state administrations have resulted in the destruction of the world-class system of American medical care.

In the U.S., in March 2020, we were told that we needed to lock down for two weeks to protect our hospitals from being swamped with sick and dying covid-19 patients. We were also told assertively that the new pandemic could cause up to 2.2 million deaths in the U.S. alone. That model was flawed at the outset. Author Neil Ferguson of the Imperial College London was known for his earlier “sensational death estimates from mad cow disease, bird flu, and swine flu.” Three strikes, and he should have been out. Instead of striking him out, his flawed model provided much of the justification for establishing and enforcing the draconian lockdown rules.

Since then, citizens have been betrayed again and again by the public health system, representatives of medicine and public health in the U.S., including Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, directors of the CDC, NIH, and executives with the Department of Health and Human Services. We have learned of multiple betrayals and manipulations of data by international medical journals, universities, medical centers, and public health officials. The pandemic prevention and treatments were ordered by the World Health Organization, a specialized agency chartered by the United Nations to protect global health and coordinate international health issues, including epidemics or pandemics.

If medical professionals had held the line, had upheld their ethics and the Hippocratic Oath, had demanded rational treatments for their patients, and had stood up to bullying by their administrators and state public health officials, the local health care quality would have been preserved, and the cold, heartless quality of assembly line medical “care” would have been rejected.

In America, with all its patient rights protections, there are crisis cases of very ill patients admitted in life-threatening distress to hospitals around the country whose families request medical interventions for covid-19 symptoms. Hospitals have refused family requests and personal physician demands for the best available treatments.

There are instances where hospitals are placing patients on Do Not Resuscitate orders, despite the family and patient refusing them. Some cases have been won in court, and patients have been saved from near-death by the treatments the courts ordered hospitals to deliverOther patients had died when nothing moved the hospital to change its course of action.

“It’s therapeutic nihilism to say that doctors can do nothing,” Dr. Paul Marik said. “Supportive care is no care at all.” Dr. Marik, sixty-three, is the endowed professor at the Eastern Virginia Medical School and a world-renowned clinician-researcher. He has been described as “America’s most published critical care doctor [who] made some of the greatest breakthroughs of the pandemic, saving countless lives globally.”

As documented meticulously in our book COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We are the Prey, courageous physicians of conscience were developing early treatment plans that prevented the worst of the covid-19 disease processes, keeping patients safe at home and in recovery. Two main courses of treatment evolved through the brilliance and tenacity of heroic doctors: hydroxychloroquine with zinc, azithromycin, ivermectin, and other supplementals. They proved to be miracle drugs that, when administered, brought about recovery from some of the worst and deadliest symptoms that landed patients in hospitals, on ventilators, and suffocating from lack of oxygen. Further treatment plans have been developed, and all the plans are consolidated, maintained, and updated by the Truth for Health Foundation.

Grace Schara was a nineteen-year-old young woman with Down Syndrome. Her father, Scott Schara, was Grace’s patient advocate under the Americans with Disabilities Act, so he was able to stay with her when she was hospitalized with covid in September 2021. Despite all the father’s efforts, “if he had known then what he knows now, his daughter would still be alive. He cannot explain why a hospital would dictate care based on faulty medical equipment, isolate Grace from ADA advocates, prevent her from eating to the point that she needed a feeding tube, restrain her, unilaterally label her DNR, administer an ICU sedative for an extended time, and finally combine it with narcotics that rapidly ended her life,” said a report in the New American. “I agree the medications killed your daughter,” Scott was told by an intensivist after a review of her records. “What happened to Grace is awful and scandalous; unfortunately, this is what is happening across the country. Hospitals have become dangerous places for patients.”Since her death, her father has gone on to speak about the abuses, the neglect, and the outright harm caused by the hospital where Grace died and to advocate for a return to patient-centered treatment.

Nicole Sirotek is a registered flight nurse trained to oversee a ventilator and worked in May 2020 on the frontlines in New York City at the height of the first wave of covid-19 hospitalizations. She was horrified by the deaths she witnessed in two hospitals that she states were from “medical mismanagement” and “gross negligence.” She issued a twenty-four-minute video detailing the mismanaged deaths she was witnessing and was subsequently let go from her duties. She has since founded American Frontline Nurses. She testified in January of 2022 before Senator Ron Johnson’s panel in the U.S. Senate.

Peter A. McCullough MD, MPH, is an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist. He is a treating physician for patients with covid and now also for patients who have developed adverse reactions to covid vaccinations. He stated, “the human body has an amazing system of cell surface recognition molecules called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), which is designed to allow our immune cells to recognize our own healthy cells from pathogens such as bacteria or other invading micro-organisms. With the genetic vaccines, particularly mRNA, for the first-time human cells are forced to produce a highly abnormal, pathogenic spike protein. The body reacts to this almost immediately with an attack on any cell that has taken up mRNA and expressing the spike protein.”

Patients are suffering grave injury and, too often, death from receiving the mRNA or DNA covid experimental vaccinations, which were railroaded through the FDA based on an Emergency Use Authorization. A growing number of research papers documenting the damage and injury from covid vaccination have been published. One of the most recent publications was authored by MIT professor Stephanie Seneff along with three other co-authors, including Peter A. McCullough, MD. It states in part: “The mRNA SARS-CoV-2 vaccines were brought to market in response to the public health crises of covid-19. The utilization of mRNA vaccines in the context of infectious disease has no precedent. The many alterations in the vaccine mRNA hide the mRNA from cellular defenses and promote a longer biological half-life and high production of the spike protein. However, the immune response to the vaccine is very different from that of a SARS-CoV-2 infection. In this paper, we present evidence that vaccination induces a profound impairment in type I interferon signaling, which has diverse adverse consequences to human health.”

Many of these same courageous physicians and other brave nurses and treating healthcare practitioners are being threatened and charged in their home states with misinformation and other specious citations by state medical boards.

Doctors of conscience everywhere became the only barrier to the great vaccine plan. If early treatments had been allowed and encouraged by the state and the federal government, the new, never tried mRNA and DNA vaccines never would have been released. When released, they would have been recalled within a month or two due to the unprecedented number of vaccine-related injuries and deaths.

Has the corruption of covid treatments and covid patient care spilled over to the non-covid clinical and hospital patient care? Yes.

On the ground level, patients are reporting patterns of disrespect from their physicians, nurses, and other health workers. I’ve heard several reports of patients who were verbally castigated for not being vaccinated or for using hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin. Many physicians who used to work in this blue state of New York are gone due to employee vaccine mandates. There are nursing shortages.

In one local clinic, the front office staff and nurses call the attending nurse practitioner “doctor,” although her highest credential is a Master of Science in Nursing. This is not a small matter. It is fraud, and a direct violation of the state’s patients’ bill of rights. Where efforts used to be made to accommodate family or friends of the patient, now they are barely tolerated or rejected outright.

Patients’ rights and other pledges of attention to individual care are still required to be offered, and patients are required to sign a document that they have been offered a copy of, but the rules are frequently violated.

Worse are the outright maltreatment of patients. One hospitalized cancer patient on a walker with serious post abdominal surgery complications was discharged. When her family member did not arrive “quickly enough,” she was ordered into a MedVan–non-emergency medical transportation. She was physically compromised, non-mobile, and frightened by the driver, who was loudly verbally abusive.

Another patient who had suddenly emerging mobility issues in his lower back was ignored by his primary internist for several weeks when requesting a referral to a neurologist. After multiple requests, neurology was eventually arranged, and the MRI of the spine was viewed by a surgeon who recommended surgery for the patient without doing any physical examination. Most individuals I speak to post-covid have become loathe to see their doctor or seek help from a hospital.

Our battered and broken health care system can be fixed, but we must reject the dangerous and damaging authoritarian control directed by federal and international agencies during the pandemic.

Instead, the current U.S. administration is actively helping implement the WHO lust for power over sovereign nations. James Roguski has written a Substack column documenting amendments proposed by a bureaucrat at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. These amendments will be voted upon on May 22 to 28 of this year at the 75th World Health Assembly (the WHO governing body). These amendments establish an even stronger hierarchy of authority, with WHO at the top and senior to any nation or state.

The amendments endow WHO with enforcement powers for any health-related issues that might constitute or be suspected of becoming an emergency. They abdicate national authority and control of U.S. healthcare.

Meanwhile, the preamble of the Constitution of the World Health Organization codifies such broad health principles that WHO becomes completely weaponized to order about nation-states, and take enforcement action that is not defined, should states refuse to cooperate. The WHO, and its biggest supporter, China, have been vehemently embracing totalitarian solutions to the covid health crisis and still defend their actions.

Another common yet more drastic measure has been prepared by the WHO’s Director-General Tedros. WHO is encouraging the world’s nations to make legally binding treaties with the UN agency, giving over their healthcare systems entirely to the governance of WHO. WHO would become the central authority of worldwide healthcare, called One Health, which would treat all citizens as equal to animals and the environment.

These two measures—first, passing the U.S. amendments to empower WHO to investigate suspected health dangers in any country regardless of its stated desires and, second, making treaties with as many countries as possible to give over their healthcare sovereignty to WHO—will eventually erode the sovereignty of all the world’s nations, leaving the global predators to exploit all of us.

We have all had a taste of totalitarian medicine during the recent pandemic and are witnessing its continued destructiveness. Unless our government refuses to be consumed by this UN agency, the United States and all its citizens within will be enslaved by unelected globalists, and our former health freedoms will never be returned to us.

(45) Australia’s 2022 Election (4)

By Andrew McColl, 10th May, 2022

Over the last three weeks, I’ve already covered three aspects of the upcoming election: Bureaucrats and the fear of Covid, Morrison and the Liberals, and thirdly, Albanese and the Labor Party. So far it’s been pretty negative, because there is a fair bit of negativity around at this election, perhaps more than usual.

But there is some good news! There are a number of Independent candidates running for the election, in fact a lot more than usual. That means the voters have lots of choices to make. They don’t have to bother themselves with the usual Liberal/Labor duopoly, which has been rather unimpressive these last three years.

We’ve got options, and there are plenty. Options mean there is plenty of scope for choice, and don’t we all like choice?

The One Nation Party in Qld, presently has 2 Senators in the Upper House, and they are seeking 2 more. Their leader Pauline Hanson has been forthright for many months now, in addressing the very negative and dangerous issues surrounding the mandated Covid vaccinations, as has Malcolm Roberts, her other Senate representative.

Since last year, she has challenged the Prime Minister for his preparedness to go along with this unjust and abusive evil, perpetrated by State governments, but he’s refused to pay her any attention. I think One Nation’s at the top of the list of the independent parties, and the former LNP Member of Parliament, George Christenson, has joined her party now, and is a Senate candidate.

And there are others. The Liberal Democrats are putting up Campbell Newman, a former Lord Mayor of Brisbane, and Premier. I think he has a lot to offer the electorate.

He only lasted one term as Premier, and had sought to reform the Public Service and get rid of thousands of mostly wasteful government jobs, trying to wrestle the Budget back to the black, which in my view was an entirely commendable thing to do. But the electorate thought otherwise.

The United Australia Party, funded by Clive Palmer, is also fielding candidates. I don’t think he is doing them any favors by promoting a scheme to freeze bank interest rates for 3 years, which is a most unwise mechanism to interfere in the market. If he’d let the candidates (led by the former Liberal MP Craig Kelly) determine their policies, they might have a lot better chance of success.

There are others, too. The so-called Teal Independents have little to offer, because they seem  to be another environmental action group, which superficially seems positive, but always seems to come with an underlying attack on justice for individuals. Why would that impress?

Foolishly, the Labor Party NSW Senate candidate, Mich-Elle Meyers, claimed recently that “Jesus was Gay,” which is a direct challenge and insult to the Christian community. I’m not in NSW, but she wouldn’t be getting my vote.

Conclusion:

What’s clear in Australia is that the major parties are treating the community with an astonishing level of arrogance and contempt. It’s a free country, and they can do that, and because it’s a free country, we can also reward their contempt, as we see fit.

That’s what happens in democratic nations, if political leaders somehow let themselves get distanced from the electorate, and the voters are not impressed. After being treated with contempt, I’ll take my vote elsewhere, and I’d encourage you to do, just that.

The Bill of Temporary Privileges

By Andrew Napolitano (www.lewrockwell.com), 5/5/2022

Last week, the [US] Director of National Intelligence, the data-gathering and data-concealing arm of the American intelligence community masquerading as the head of it, revealed that in 2021, the FBI engaged in 3.4 million warrantless electronic searches of Americans. This is a direct and profound violation of the right to privacy in “persons, houses, papers, and effects” guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment.

For the past 60 years, the Supreme Court has characterized electronic surveillance as a search that can only be conducted pursuant to a warrant issued by a judge based on probable cause of crime, which itself must be presented under oath to the judge. The warrant must specifically describe the place to be searched and the person or thing to be seized.

By failing to comply with these constitutional requirements, the FBI violated the natural and constitutionally protected right to be left alone of millions of Americans.

Yet, all of this was perfectly lawful. How can government behavior be both lawful and unconstitutional at the same time and in the same respect?

Here is the backstory.

The Fourth Amendment was written in 1791 while memories of British soldiers searching colonial homes were still prevalent. The British used general warrants to justify their violation of colonists’ privacy. A general warrant was not based on probable cause of crime. It was generated whenever the British government persuaded a secret court in London that it needed something from foreign persons, the colonists. The British government did not even need to identify what it needed.

General warrants authorized the bearer to search wherever he pleased and to seize whatever he found. The Fourth Amendment was written expressly to outlaw general warrants and warrantless searches.

After President Richard Nixon used the FBI and the CIA to spy on his political opponents, Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, which prohibited warrantless domestic surveillance. Since the Fourth Amendment did so already, the prohibition was superfluous.

It was also toothless, as the new law set up a secret court — the FISA court — which issued surveillance warrants based not on probable cause of crime as the Fourth Amendment requires, but on probable cause of communicating with a foreign person. And the court, over time, kept modifying its own rules to make it easier for the National Security Agency –America’s 60,000 domestic spies — to spy on Americans.

Today, if you call your cousin in London, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court can authorize the NSA to spy on you. And if you then call your sister-in-law in Kansas, FISC can allow the NSA to spy on her and on the folks she calls and the folks they call.

This massive invasion of privacy produced huge amounts of data, which FISA required the NSA to keep to itself and use only to anticipate breaches of national security. The data acquired from spying on all fiber optic transmitted communications could not be shared with law enforcement since it had been obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment. That prohibition was known as the “wall” between the intelligence and law enforcement communities.

In 2008, after the Bush administration was caught in massive warrantless spying on Americans, Congress enacted amendments to FISA that removed the wall. Stated differently, the new law, Section 702 of FISA, which expires in 20 months, required all telecom and computer service providers to give the NSA unfettered access to their computers whenever the feds came calling — with or without FISA warrants — and also allowed the FBI access to the body of raw intelligence data that the NSA acquired.

The wall between the intelligence community and law enforcement is gone.

Every member of Congress has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, yet by repeated majority votes and the signatures of all pre-Biden presidents since 2008 continually re enacting Section 702, Congress has permitted the FBI to bypass the Constitution. Thus, FBI spying is lawful because a statute authorizes it, but unconstitutional because the statute violates the Fourth Amendment.

Last week, the Director of National Intelligence, who is required by Section 702 to report all FBI access to the raw intelligence data, did so. But her record keeping is as sloppy as her fidelity to the Constitution. Thus, she reported 3.4 million FBI searches of raw intelligence data on Americans in 2021.

You’d think that meant that 3.4 million Americans had their emails, text messages, phone calls, medical and legal and personal records surveilled by the FBI. You’d be incorrect. To the feds, the word “search” refers to the input of a search term, like “Jan. 6” or “local militia” or “small government.” One FBI search thus can lead to the records of thousands of Americans.

It is hard to believe that senior management of the CIA, NSA and FBI can perpetuate these egregious constitutional violations with straight faces. But they do. And Congress permits it. Why? Because the CIA, NSA, FBI and their collaborators have dirt on members of Congress. Dirt.

The federal government is rotten to the core. Its officers and employees don’t believe that the Constitution means what it says. They will lie, cheat, threaten, bribe and steal to cut constitutional corners and remain in power.

The Fourth Amendment was written to protect the quintessentially American right to privacy. It is a critical part of the structure of the Bill of Rights.

Rather, it was.

Today, in America, we have no rights. A right is an indefeasible claim against the whole world — to think as you wish, to say and publish what you think, to worship or not, to defend yourself, to experience your life and exercise your liberty and use your property without a government permission slip, and to be left alone.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, yet the rights it facially protects are now subject to government approval. The Bill of Rights is really a Bill of Temporary Privileges.

(44) Australia’s 2022 Election (3)

By Andrew McColl, 3rd May, 2022

The Labor Party represents the Left of Australia’s political spectrum. Not quite as far left as the Greens, but nearly. For Labor, “Left” ostensibly means the working class, but that’s been wearing a bit thin for decades now.

Labor really means: “progressive” morality, abortion on demand, the gay agenda, ‘Climate Change’ is real and dangerous, lock up forests from logging, undecided about mining, spend more, tax more, borrow more, you don’t have to think, because we know what’s best for you.

And there’s more: Capitalism is doubtful, Education, Health and Welfare must all be free, because the government can do that (that’s always been a lie), Defence in relation to China is muddled, and everything of any importance happens in the capital cities, because that’s where most of the voters live. Consequently, don’t expect to find many Labor voters in the bush.

Hundreds of thousands of Australians protested in Canberra in February, against compulsory vaccines for Covid. Some of those voters had driven for 20 hours to get there. They were not indifferent to Australian politics, but the leader of the Labor Party leader, Anthony Albanese, suggested to them that they should “go home.” 

Mr Albanese transformed himself into “Mr Alienater” with one thoughtless statement. Two contemptuous words was all he needed to successfully alienate hundreds of thousands of voters. They won’t be back. He didn’t care about that, then. He will, come Election Day.

My wife and I attended an Election Forum in South Brisbane, on the 23rd April, put on by a local group called Voting Matters. There were 11 Senate candidates present, half of them were local people, and they each had 5 minutes to present their case. There were no Labor or Green candidates present, to address the crowd of about 600.

That seemed a bit odd. But perhaps the Labor and Green candidates knew what might be coming, and stayed away. Why would they decide to do that?

Those 600 people were not happy with the status quo. The vast majority (all those who expressed their opinion) were not happy with compulsory vaccinations, with bloated, out of touch bureaucracies, with political leaders who are out of touch with the electorate, but nonetheless encourage people to “follow the Science.”

It would be unwise today to suggest that the crowd was clearly a microcosm of the whole Australian community, because that could prove to be an exaggeration; a bridge too far. Nonetheless, that crowd were respectful, but angry.

No doubt Anthony would prefer us to forget about other matters the Labor Party would like to leave behind. Like the “mean girls,” the senior female Labor Senators who were consistently cruel and oppressive to another female Labor Senator, Kimberley Kitching, who refused to toe the line with them.

She died of a heart attack, on the 10th March, but when the matter of these ladies was raised with Mr Albanese, he asserted that anyone critical of the women was being “sexist,” and he would not be having any enquiry into the matter.

Thanks for that clarification on your private, even-handed impartiality, Anthony. I’m really taken with how you, who aspires to be the next PM of the nation, dealt with that grubby little in-house matter.

When you’re a female Labor Senator, you can do no wrong? Albanese thinks so, and that sends a message to everyone. Will the electorate come to a similar conclusion as me?

The Bible says that,

If a ruler pays attention to falsehood, all his ministers become wicked (Prov.29:12).

It also teaches us that,

Like a roaring lion and a rushing bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people (Prov.28:15).

Conclusion:

When democratic countries have elections, political leaders can do as they wish. They really can say what they like, but they cannot dictate how people will respond. In three weeks, Mr Albanese is going to find that out for himself, and as Nancy Sinatra sang so exquisitely in 1966,

These boots are made for walkin’,

And that’s just what they’ll do,

And one of these days these boots

Are gonna walk all over you.

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (82)

By Paul Craig Roberts (www.lewrockwell.com), 27/4/2022

Today in Florida the only places you need a mask are offices of medical conglomerates, such as Ascension (Sacred Heart), a hospital group that also has doctor’s offices where the MD is hired and not in private practice, and Quest Diagnostics where medical tests are performed.  In bureaucratic organizations, once a rule is introduced the enforcement bureaucracy tends to retain it. 

As the news narrative shifted overnight from the “Covid crisis” to the “Ukrainian crisis,” that is, from one deception to another, the “Russian threat” has replaced the “Covid threat” before people understand what was done to them. 

Covid was a threat, not so much in itself as in the protocols enforced to combat it.  Most of the people who died did so because they were denied effective treatment with Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin for the sole purpose of profit for pharmaceutical companies and profit for those, such as Tony Fauci, associated with them.  The emergency use authorization of the untested mRNA “vaccines” could only happen because “medical authorities” declared that there were no known treatments or cures for Covid.  To make this falsehood stick, scientists on Big Pharma’s payroll wrote “studies” published in prestigious medical journals by gullible or corrupt editors falsely characterizing the known cures as dangerous and ineffective.  To be clear, people died from lack of treatment.

The mRNA “vaccines” are not vaccines in the normal meaning of the word. As evidence conclusively shows, the “vaccines” turn the vaccinated person’s immune system into a weapon against the person’s health, producing in many severe adverse reactions and deaths, and makes the vaccinated more susceptible to Covid.  A large amount of evidence, much of it posted on this website and available in throughly documented form in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book, The Real Anthony Fauci, indicates that the mRNA “vaccines” are more dangerous than Covid.

It is likely that the alleged “pandemic” was an orchestration.  The falsehood that the virus originated in a bat to human transfer in a market in Wuhan China has been disproved. It is a manufactured virus.  It is a fact revealed by NIH documents that Tony Fauci financed “gain-of-function” research first at the University of North Carolina and then at the Wuhan laboratory from which the virus allegedly escaped.  

There is circumstantial evidence that the research at Wuhan was financed as a cover-story for the intentional release of the virus for profit and control purposes. Simulations of the “pandemic” were conducted just prior to the appearance of the virus, and the protocols followed the procedures established by the simulation.  This will never be investigated.

The only purposes served by the lockdowns and mask mandates, both ineffective in preventing Covid transmission, was to train and accustom populations to obey mandates that violate constitutionally protected civil liberty.  The vaccine mandates are strictly medical crimes in violation of the Nuremberg Laws preventing coercive testing on human populations.  There are legal efforts underway to hold those responsible for vaccine mandates accountable, but no government will indict itself or its own public health authorities.

In his book, Robert Kennedy describes the massive conflicts of interest between the NIH, CDC, FDA, and WHO and the pharmaceutical industry.  In short, the so-called “public health agencies” are just shills for Big Pharma. The occasional fines are just window dressing to give the appearance of enforcement, but no pharmaceutical employee, whether executive or scientist, is ever indicted for inflicting death and injury.  

As Kennedy puts it:

By all accounts, Anthony Fauci has implemented a system of dysfunctional conflicts and a transactional culture that have made NIAID a seamless appendage of Big Pharma. There is simply no daylight between NIAID and the drugmakers. It’s impossible to say where Pharma ends and NIAID begins.

Several decades ago the University of Chicago economist George Stigler pointed out that the problem with regulation, is that the regulatory agencies are sooner or later captured by the regulated industry and become servants of the industries they were created to regulate.  This has happened in the United States, and the purest example is the pharmaceutical industry.

(43) Australia’s 2022 Election (2)

By Andrew McColl, 23th April, 2022

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine and valiant men in mixing strong drink, who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right! Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble and dry grass collapses into the flame, so their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel (Isa.5:20-24).

The Liberal-National Party Coalition have done nothing to recommend themselves to conservative voters for this election. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison refused to stand alongside Julian Assange, when the U.S. government was clearly out to get him for embarrassing them with his astonishing Wikileaks material.

Assange was never going to be forgiven by the U.S., for displaying to the world dreadful footage (with live comments from the participants) of a U.S. Apache helicopter firing on and murdering unarmed Baghdad civilians in broad daylight, then firing on the Mini-Van with civilian occupants, that stopped to pick up the wounded casualties.

Mr Morrison said that Assange would have to “…face the music.” For what?  

Showing graphic footage of a murder scene, as recorded by the criminals? Wouldn’t that be important material that the Police would place great value on for multiple convictions, if that shocking incident had taken place in Australia?

Bullies don’t like it when their behavior is broadcast to the world, and if they can, they’ll stop that broadcaster, real fast. So Morrison sat on his hands and let an international bully, the United States of America, get what they wanted with Assange.

So much for international law and justice, when Julian Assange has broken no law, nor been convicted on any charge, but Assange’s PM looks the other way, while Assange stays in a U.S. goal, with no conviction recorded. Such matters as “justice” (which the Bible places great store upon) suddenly seem inconvenient to our Prime Minister at these times.

Israel Folau made a plain and public Christian statement on Facebook, quoting the scriptures that homosexuals will go to hell when they die, but Morrison would have nothing to do with it, not even to defend his right to express his opinion in a free society.

Morrison ignored the best interests of the community, when he went along with power-hungry bureaucrats and Premiers, with Covid Lockdown mandates. He was happy to turn the country hard left, though he had the power to introduce legislation to override the Premiers. But like Pilate, Morrison washed his hands of that opportunity to protect the innocent from injustice and abuse. Thousands of healthy, qualified people were compelled to resign their jobs, for what?

This brought immediate chaos to Queensland schools that’s still unresolved, and those teachers still can’t work.

He has displayed a “win the election at any cost” attitude, which I find disgraceful. In my opinion, in the matter of the 2nd temptation to Christ (Luke 4:5-8), which Jesus triumphed in, Morrison had failed abysmally.

Status, money and power have triumphed over justice, and the Bible warns us about plainly about the dangers of this (I Tim.5:10). And it gets worse.

Morrison has overseen a veritable Federal Spendathon in the last 2 years. Wherever a problem arises, this immediately requires a new opening of the Taxpayer’s cheque account, to solve such problems. This government doesn’t seem to bother how this will be paid back, or by when, or who. The economics of this would cause any responsible Treasurer not to sleep at night.

Morrison’s sending a shipload of Australian coal to the Ukraine, which will probably have to pass through the Black Sea. Who controls shipping in the Black Sea?  The Russians.

What if the Russian navy apprehends the ship, or worse, fires upon or sinks it? Who’ll be responsible if the crew are harmed? This decision was a poorly informed one. It looks awfully like a foolish and cynical PR exercise. But who gave thought to the probable route, or the possible consequences, should the Russians choose to act forcibly? 

I surely hope that Mr Putin is not tempted to sink that ship. All the while, I’m informed that Russia is still selling coal to the Ukraine at a discounted price, which they frequently on-sell into Europe.

And there’s more.

One of Mr Morrison’s Cabinet Ministers, Alan Tudge, had an affair with his married Secretary. She’s claiming $500,000 compensation, and Morrison’s approved this to be paid by the taxpayer. Tudge sins-we pay. How very convenient for Mr Tudge, and her!

Forget about Ministerial responsibility, here.

Conclusion:

Over the last three years, Mr Morrison has made his views abundantly clear to the Australian community, and his party hasn’t disowned him. But any Prime Minister who treats the electorate contemptuously, is asking to be treated harshly by the voters at the ballot box.

So, I won’t be crying if they come after Morrison, next month. He deserves it. It might be the closest thing to justice he’s come across, for a long, long time.

CIA Admits Feeding Americans False information about Ukraine

By Ron Paul (www.lewrockwell.com), 12/4/2022

Late last year, a Gallup poll showed that Americans’ trust in the mainstream media has fallen to its second lowest level on record. Only seven percent of Americans responded that they have a “great deal” of trust in the media.

That loss of trust has been well-earned by the mainstream media, and it explains the massive growth of independent media and alternative voices on social media. The response to the rise of independent media voices has been a rush to “cancel” any voice outside the accepted mainstream narrative.

Citizens of the Soviet Union would read manipulated media like Pravda not because the regime reported facts, but because truth was hidden between the lines of what was reported and what was not reported. That seems to be where we are in the US today.

Last week an extraordinary article appeared in, of all places, NBC News, reporting that the US intelligence community is knowingly feeding information it does not believe accurate to the US mainstream media for the American audience to consume.

In other words, the article reports that the US “deep state” admits to being actively engaged in lying to the American people in the hopes that it can manipulate public opinion

According to the NBC News article, “multiple US officials acknowledged that the US has used information as a weapon even when confidence in the accuracy of the information wasn’t high. Sometimes it has used low-confidence intelligence for deterrent effect…”

Readers will recall the shocking headlines that Russia was prepared to use chemical weapons in Ukraine, that China would be providing military equipment to Russia, that Russian President Putin was being fed misinformation by his advisors, and more.

All of these were churned out by the CIA to be repeated in the American media even though they were known to be false. It was all about, as one intelligence officer said in the article, “trying to get inside Putin’s head.”

That may have been the goal, but what the CIA actually did was get inside America’s head with false information meant to shape public perception of the conflict. They lied to propagandize us in favour of the Biden Administration’s narrative.

Those pushing the “Russiagate” hoax through the Trump years claimed that the goal of “Russian disinformation” was to undermine Americans’ trust in our government, media, and other institutions. Isn’t it ironic that the CIA itself has done more than the Russians to undermine Americans’ faith in the media by feeding false stories to establish a particular narrative among the American people?

After the Bay of Pigs disaster, President Kennedy has been quoted as wanting “to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” That didn’t work out too well for him. As Senate Majority Chuck Schumer famously told Rachel Maddow in 2020, responding to the-President Trump’s criticism of the CIA, “let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

As more information about the activities of the US Intelligence Community in trying to bring down Trump come out, it appears that, for once, Schumer was right.

It’s time to revisit President Kennedy’s post-Bay of Pigs wish. The CIA using lies to propagandize the American people toward war with Russia is just one of thousands of reasons to scatter a million pieces of that agency to the wind.

(42) Australia’s 2022 Election (1)

By Andrew McColl, 16th April, 2022

God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers. How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Vindicate the weak and the fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked (Psalm 82:1-4).

There hasn’t been a lot of joy for Australians in what its governments has been doing, for many years now, but there is some hope with an election soon. How is that?

We can throw a lot of the scoundrels out, hoping and praying for some better representatives in the Federal Parliament.

Some of us hope the Liberal/Labor Duopoly takes a hammering. I certainly am. Lately, it’s been an opportunity for self-serving politicians, many of whom would never survive in business, to enrich themselves at the public purse.

Not even being content with this, they have gamed the system now, so that political parties are formally recognized as being deserving of funding from the taxpayer. This must be to “support democracy,” you see.

If ever there was a cynical exercise in gaming the system for yourself and your friends, this was it. And why shouldn’t the electorate be disgusted?

But, elections are a means of the electorate speaking, and I expect I’ll hear some loud and insistent voices this time around, from a rather disaffected electorate who feel as if they’ve been ignored by their political representatives; an entirely justifiable conclusion.

Somewhere near the top of the list has been the Federal government’s handling (mishandling?) of Covid. Frankly, there never was a pandemic in Australia over these last two years, but the bureaucrats and politicians like hearing the sound of “Emergency Health  Declaration,” as it gives them the opportunity to justify panicking a frightened electorate into responses driven by fear and uncertainty, so that bureaucrats get asked to throw our money at imaginary problems that never existed.

Thousands of people die in Australia annually from flue, and these are overwhelmingly over-represented by the frail and elderly, because at any time, it doesn’t take a lot to push them over the line.  Statistically speaking, these last 2 years have been no different, but fear pays no attention to objective statistics, especially when supposedly “expert” medical bureaucrats  (paid by the government), have lined up to convince the community what we all need to do to “stop the spread.”

We didn’t need to “stop the spread,” because there never was any, just the usual amount of people getting flu, like any other year.

And what we do know from history, is that bureaucrats and politicians without fail, love the idea of more money being spent in their department, because they benefit in terms of money, status and power. Science never did come into it, but status and power surely did, and that’s more than enough.

And these alone are supposed to justify the spending of absurd amounts of money, driving the government to insane levels of debt. And in a “health emergency,” that must be justified, mustn’t it?

Remove the “Emergency Declaration,” propaganda, then the community fear and panic, and whole thing is reduced to what it always was: much ado about next to nothing.

I lost my job because of Covid mandates. I was never unhealthy, or in any way a health threat to the public. But I refused to be vaccinated on grounds of conscience, which meant my employment had to be terminated.

How easy was that, to get rid of people who were a threat to the official narrative of essential restrictions and lockdowns? This was never merely a mistake. It was authoritarian, a monstrous abuse of political power, and it had no relationship to “Community Health.” But it certainly had a lot to do with the getting and keeping of political power, by wanton political leaders and their bureaucrats.

I expect there’ll be a lot more to be said about this in coming years, and over 95% of it won’t be complementary to governments. It might just be angry and hostile.

An Empire of Lies

By Vasko Kohlmayer (www.lewrockwell.com), 11/4/2022

It has been said that America has become an Empire of Lies. Difficult as it may be to accept, this allegation is true. To deny this would be to fool ourselves. The truth is that over the last several decades America’s elites have erected a system in which lies permeate every aspect of our societal life.

Everywhere we turn, we encounter lies. We have now arrived at a point where nearly all our public institutions operate on lies: the government, media, education system, arts, military and even sports. A recent event is emblematic of the Empire of Lies in which we live.

On March 13, USA TODAY published its list of top twelve Women of the Year. One those “women” was one Rachel Levine. The problem is that Levine is not a woman.

Born Richard Levine, Levine is a biological male who has lived most of his life as a man. He married and fathered children by his wife. It was only after he turned fifty that he declared himself to be a “woman.”

Levine’s personal preferences notwithstanding, the incontrovertible reality remains that he is a man. Every cell in his body testifies to this fact by carrying within it the XY chromosomal combination which is characteristics of males.

Rachel Levine, born Richard Levine, is a biological male who was married to a woman and fathered children. Once someone is born a male, he can never become a woman, because this determination has been made on the deepest level of biological reality.

The sex of a person is an irreversible biological fact. This is how a Stanford geneticist expressed this truth:

“No amount of surgery, hormone injections or anything else will change someone’s DNA from a man’s to a woman’s (or vice versa). As you know, for humans, sex is determined by the presence of a Y chromosome – humans with an X and a Y chromosome are male and those with two X chromosomes are female. No current (or probably future) technology can replace a chromosome in all of our trillions of cells.”

One cannot become a woman by declaring himself one or by wearing make-up, skirts, wigs or painted nails. Neither can a man become a woman by hormonal treatments or surgical alterations to his body. However extensive such alterations may be, he will only be a surgically or hormonally altered male with XY chromosomes.

According to Dr. Paul McHugh, a Harvard-educated physician and formerly University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine:

“Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men. All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized  women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they identify.”

But we do not need experts to confirm this. Nearly every normal person knows this intuitively and can immediately see this when presented with the evidence of their eyes.

There is an elemental chasm between biological males and real women that cannot be bridged. To say that Rachel Levine is a woman is therefore an obvious untruth. It is a lie. But it is not merely an ordinary lie. It is a flagrant lie whose immense falsity is evident to everyone with eyes to see. If you asked a thousand people – in an environment in which they would not feel threatened to express their true opinion – to tell you whether they think Rachel Levine is a genuine woman, nearly all would say “no.” Those who would say yes would be immediately suspected of visual or mental impairment.

To put it briefly, Rachel Levine is a man, and, therefore, he can never be a woman. Yet in America we pretend otherwise. This is gaslighting of the most brazen kind. Worse yet, this gross subversion of truth is not being practiced on some far fringes of American society. It is being practiced at its very heart and center.

USA TODAY is a major newspaper and a broadcasting company – in fact, it is the number one newspaper in America by circulation.

But it is not only USA TODAY that subverts the truth in this unabashed fashion. ALL major corporate media do it. All of them have consistently pretended that Levine is a woman and refer to him as such ever since he burst onto the national scene in 2020. This includes even such outlets as Forbes and The Economist, periodicals which one would have thought had still some contact with reality.

                                                                                                                                              When Levine became the United States Assistant Secretary for Health all media falsely represented him as a “woman.” When Levine was named an admiral in the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, the media across the spectrum celebrated the event as a major milestone for women claiming that Levine was “the first female four-star admiral in public service.”

But it is not only the media who propagate the grossest of lies; it is also our government starting at the very top. When President Biden announced Levine’s nomination for the post of Assistant Secretary for Health, he referred to him as a woman. When Levine was being questioned during his confirmation hearing not a single US senator brought up the obvious issue of him being a man. Not one of them used this opportunity to ask him why he tries to pretend otherwise. They all pretended that the person sitting in front of them was a woman.

It is not only the highest levels of the US government that are actively subverting physical reality before them; it is government on all levels. As you may know, prior to his federal appointments Levine served as Secretary of Health in Pennsylvania. He was appointed to this position by Governor Tom Wolf who, of course, referred to him as a “woman.” Needless to say, Levine was confirmed to this role by the Pennsylvania State Senate who were all willing to go along and pretend that the man before them was a woman.

But it not only the American media and political establishment that lie and deny reality. Academia is equally intellectually and morally corrupt. To wit, the best athlete on the University of Pennsylvania women’s swimming team is a young man called Lia Thomas who until last season competed as a male. Thomas went on to become the NCAA swimming champion in 500-yard freestyle.

As you may know, the University of Pennsylvania also happens to be an Ivy League school. The Ivy Leagues are a group of elite universities that are considered among the best in the United State and, indeed, the world. The eight schools in this grouping include such prominent institutions of higher learning as Harvard, Yale and Princeton. As such they are supposed to represent the best and brightest among us. These schools compete among each other in the Ivy League conference. That they would allow a man to compete with – and soundly beat – genuine girls shows that our intellectual elites have collectively lost both their judgment and their minds.

Unfortunately, the same applies to our military and the medical establishment. The former now pays for sex transition surgeries for our military personnel. There are many serious problems with this, but the main one is that there can be no such a thing as “sex transition,” because such a thing is simply not possible. The very premise of the whole procedure rests on a lie. This lie is being propagated by the medical establishment that carries out these mutilating procedures. Furthermore, in their reality-subverting endeavours, they now refer to real women as “birthing persons.”

We do not need any more examples. It suffices to say that practically every American institution is now actively engaged in reality subversion. If we are as a society willing to lie about obvious unalterable physical realities, we must be lying galore about other things as well. And we most certainly do. The American regime and its media lie nearly about everything, and they do it vehemently and without ceasing. Do you want some recent examples?

What about the vaccines being perfectly safe and 95 percent effective?

What about Hunter Biden’s hard drive being Russian disinformation?

What about BLM being a peaceful movement concerned with racial justice?

What about Kyle Rittenhouse being a white supremacist intent on shooting peaceful BML protesters?

What about the claim that Joe Biden is an honest politician and a good man?

What about the SARS-CoV-2 virus coming from Wuhan wet market?

What about the claim that Anthony Fauci was a selfless public servant whose main concern in life is the well-being of his fellow citizens and public health?

What about the Canadian truckers being racists, fascist, misogynists and terrorists?

What about the claim (made in 2006) that we only had ten years to save the planet from a climate disaster induced by man-made global warming?

And do you still remember Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction?

All these were brazen lies promulgated by our fraudulent establishment.

Almost nothing that is said these days in public discourse is true. Our whole system is saturated in dishonesty, untruth and deception. Our public sphere exists in a tissue of lies.

Biden, Fauci, Walensky, CNN, NPR, the Washington Times, the Department of Justice, the FBI, Pelosi, Gates, Zuckerberg, Schumer and thousands of their friends – every one of them tells lies.

The dollar, along with our whole financial system, rest on a stupendous lie. The lie is this: the United States government will one day pay off its debts. This will never happen. Once the hour of reckoning arrives, this lie will cost us dearly. Lies, lies, lies and more lies everywhere.

And now the liars are using their media to push for and expand the war in Ukraine. If you really want to learn the truth about Ukraine please watch a 2016 lecture on the subject by Professor John Mearsheimer, one of the world’s leading experts on geopolitics and international relations.

                                                                                                                                                    A Supreme Court nominee recently claimed she did not know how to describe what a woman is. She said she is not a biologist. So, a Harvard-educated lawyer cannot tell us what a female is, and this nation is supposed to award her a lifetime appointment of great public trust. That woman – Kentaji Brown Jackson – is not exceptional in her extreme prevarication. Today nearly all public figures dissemble and lie as a matter of course.

Our system is so false and rotten that the so-called “fact checkers” are among the greatest liars to be found. Those who attempt to say the truth, on the other hand, are promptly censored and silenced. Paradoxically, the truth tellers are being cancelled by the fake “fact checkers” who are on the payroll of such frauds as Pfizer, Bill Gates, George Soros and their like.

Telling the truth has become a serious offence in America. We have, indeed, become an Empire of Lies. An Empire we certainly are, for the regime not only forces its lies on the American people but exports them to the rest of the planet. Our embassies, for example, now routinely hoist the LGBT flag which stands for the movement that, among other things, maintains that men can become women.

Our globalist leaders invade and destroy countries on the basis of lies, which they tell both domestically and internationally. In the early 2000s, the United States ordered Saddam Hussein to abandon his program of developing weapons of mass destruction. He did what we asked him to do, but we still accused him of having weapons of mass destruction. We then invaded his country under this false pretence and had him executed.

A couple of years later, we asked Moammar Khaddaffi to relinquish his WMDs. The US government promised him a hand of reconciliation and cooperation if he did. He complied and then we helped to have him killed.

Before being expelled from Afghanistan, our globalist-minded elites tried to export parts of their lie-based ideology by opening a department of gender studies at the University of Kabul. They could really not have chosen a more inappropriate setting for this this kind of gaslighting operation.

Is it any wonder that the American regime is being increasingly disliked around the world?

When polled by Gallup, people around the world consistently named the United States as the greatest threat to peace. The numbers were getting so bad that the American government pressured Gallup to stop asking this question. But the world’s collective judgment is not surprising given our record of sowing havoc, death and destruction: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria. There was a big lie attached to each of these disasters.

For this we can thank our corrupt globalist establishment. This establishment is now presided over by Joe Biden, a corrupt man who has sold out his country through various influence peddling schemes and other ploys involving his son. The plentiful evidence of his misdeeds is on the hard drive of his Hunter Biden. The FBI and the Department of Justice are in possession of this drive, but the regime has refused to launch an investigation into the crimes recorded therein. Not only that, but they have done everything they could to bury them under the lie of “Russian disinformation.”

Everyone who loves truth and America should be deeply upset and grieved by this.

A regime that is so profoundly steeped in dishonesty, deception, criminality and corruption can never prosper. The moral law that undergirds all existence – the Law of God – requires that its dark works be met with just recompense.

It is not good to be the Empire of Lies.

The Ukraine War (1)

By Iain Davis, (www.lewrockwell.com), 8th April, 2022

Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine has been presented to us, in the West, as unprovoked and unjustified. We have not been told about Russia’s legitimate security concerns in the face of NATO expansionism. Nor has Ukraine’s significant Nazi problem been honestly reported, with some Western propagandist even promoting them.

The Russian government claims that its recognition and defence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) are born from “compassion” for the people who have been under siege for eight years. However, Russia also needs the new republics as satellite states, providing a foothold for its own national security as it opposes NATO’s advance.

It should be noted that Russia’s military actions, in trying to oust Nazis from their strongholds in Mariupol, Kharkiv and elsewhere, has led to the near destruction of many cities and towns in Eastern Ukraine. As of the 19th March the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCR) estimate that 847 civilians were killed in three weeks, primarily as a result of shelling.

The OHCR noted that the “actual figures are considerably higher” but could not be verified. Credible eye witness reports and video evidence indicate that the Nazis in Mariupol and other besieged areas had stopped civilians leaving through humanitarian corridors opened by Russia. There are many reports of Nazi (Asov) atrocities, including the murder of fleeing civilians.

NATO has courted Ukraine as a future alliance member for decades, taking firm steps to admit Ukraine along the way. This has never been acceptable to Russia, whose national security concerns have been consistently ignored.

Only days prior to the Russian attack, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, delivered a speech at the Munich Security Conference threatening Russia, not only with a nuclear-armed Ukraine, but a NATO nuclear power on Russia’s south-western border.

Ukraine is a pinch-point for Russia’s natural gas trade with the European Union. The purpose of the Nord Stream pipelines, constructed in partnership with Germany, was to circumnavigate that problem. It raised the potential for greater EU independence from the US and, with an EU commitment to defence union, presented a possible threat to the US dominance of NATO.

Consequently, the US applied unrelenting pressure on the EU, including enforcing sanctions on German companies, to halt the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. In response to Russia’s official recognition of the DPR & LPR, German Chancellor Olaf Sholtz immediately announced that Germany would not certify Nord Stream 2 for operational use. Russia began it’s military operation in Ukraine three days later.

Please read Parts 1-3 of this series for an exploration of the evidence informing this analysis. This provides us with what we might call the “official-unofficial” explanation for Russia’s aggression. It is an appraisal founded upon the established, accepted concept of international relations.

 However, any such investigation is necessarily incomplete. It fails even to describe the globalist forces that are both ripping Ukraine apart and propelling Russia to act. We will explore these in Parts 5 – 6.

Before we do it is important to appreciate just how far we, as supposed democratic societies, have strayed from democratic ideals. This can be understood if we consider the extreme propaganda and censorship our governments are using, hobbling our ability to discern reality.

The Propaganda Environment                                                                                              

There is little chance that the issues we have already discussed will receive fair coverage in the Western mainstream media (MSM) and none at all that it will cover what we are about to consider. The West’s propaganda, in a rapidly evolving conflict, has at times been absurd.

Immediately following the launch of Russia’s military operation the Western MSM reported the unbelievable bravery of the Ukrainian border guards defending Snake Island in the Black Sea. They stated that 13 died in their valiant defence against a Russian “air and sea bombardment.”

Ukrainian President Zelenskyy said he would award the guards posthumous medals for gallantry. It soon emerged that this was a fabrication. None of them died and Russia took the Island without harming anyone.

The MSM reported that Russian forces deliberately targeted a Mosque in Mariupol where civilian woman and children were said to be sheltering. The Turkish media later revealed that the Mosque had not been struck by anything.
