Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (52)

The Demonization of the Unvaxxed

By Karen Hunt, (, July 19, 2021

“Children are the vessels into which adults pour their poison.”
Salman Rushdie, Midnight’s Children

In The Silver Chair, book 6 of CS Lewis’s magnificent The Chronicles of Narnia, the first pages describe a “mixed” school, meaning for boys and girls, that was…

not nearly so mixed as the minds of the people who ran it. These people had the idea that boys and girls should be allowed to do what they liked. And unfortunately what ten or fifteen of the biggest boys and girls liked best was bullying the others. All sort of things, horrid things, went on…[and] the people who did them were not expelled or punished. The Head said they were interesting psychological cases and sent for them and talked to them for hours. And if you knew the right sort of things to say to the Head, the main result was that you became rather a favorite than otherwise.”

The school is called Experiment House and it’s a drab, dull place where, even though it gives the appearance of “everyone doing what they liked,” it’s really a place where everyone must fit in and those who don’t are singled out and persecuted.

The two heroes of the story, Scrubb and Jill, don’t fit in at all, and are being chased by a group of bullies when they come up against the wall at the back of the garden. They are trapped, with nowhere else to turn. In the wall is a door that is always locked. But on this occasion, it opens.

They expected to see the gray, heathery slope of the moor going up and up to join the dull autumn sky. Instead, a blaze of sunlight met them. It poured through the doorway as the light of a June day pours into a garage when you open the door. It made the drops of water on the grass glitter like beads and showed up the dirtiness on Jill’s tear-stained face.”

And so, just as they are about to be caught, Scrubb grabs Jill’s hand and pulls her “through the door, out of the school grounds, out of England, out of our world into That Place.”

I wonder if children read these books anymore? I wonder if children read books at all anymore, or if they simply stare at a lit-up screen and talk into it and it talks back. These books could well be banned as white supremacist propaganda soon anyway. Who knows?

Lewis isn’t very nice to adults in his books. But that’s because adults aren’t very nice to children. Adults have lost their sense of wonderment. The boisterous actions of children are hateful because they remind adults of what they have lost. Children must conform.

Every child who is a little bit different understands exactly how Scrubb and Jill feel. For those who don’t fit in, school is a terrifying place of torture and dread.

What we are now doing to our children with masks and vaccines is a way to make children so compliant that they never think another thought that makes them question what is “behind the door in the wall.”

Children are the bargaining chips held over the heads of those parents who are also inclined towards being just a little bit different. The consequences of being different used to be so benign. Now they could very well be death.

Someone who was once considered a friend might sneeze or touch another person’s hand, or laugh too vigorously and they will become infected. Of course it is better to live in isolation, dependent on electronic devices for amusement and companionship. The world outside is just too unpredictable.

In my last piece Happily Slipping into Our Straight Jackets, I talked about the history of drugging our children and how it has led us to so easily give up our children on the altar of Big Pharma. This, in turn, led us to where we are now, allowing the State to administer an experimental vaccine to our children, and soon even to babies.

As of late May over 600,000 children have received a first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccination. By late June, over ~7 million people younger than 18 have been vaccinated.

Yet it is still only green-lit for emergency use. Why are we doing this? Why are we using our children as guinea pigs to protect adults, when it’s been shown that this illness barely affects children, nor do they easily transmit it?

Most troubling, the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are the first-ever authorized vaccines to use mRNA. Let me just say, I am not an anti-vaxxer. However, I admit that since the start of this pandemic, I, along with a lot of other people, have begun to question things that I once simply believed because our government told me I should.

A year ago, I was living in Luxor, Egypt, having all kinds of wild adventures while my friends back home were locked in their houses and apartments. I’ve written about those experiences in a series of three essays here. Like most people, I already accepted that not everything I read in the news was true. But I never realized how bad the lies were until the pandemic struck.

From my vantage point far away across the world, in a place that didn’t close down because villages just can’t do that, I began to notice how every single news outlet said the same things. Used the same buzz words. I saw how the tension was building between President Trump and his pandemic task force, in particular Dr Fauci. I watched how at every turn, no matter what Trump said, right or wrong, he had to be discredited.

When Trump closed down travel to China, he was accused of xenophobia. To “send a message” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi toured San Francisco’s Chinatown, saying there was no reason tourists or locals should be staying away. The day after Trump’s travel ban, Biden accused him of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. And yet, months later the media made it out that Trump hadn’t done enough and if Biden had been in charge, he would have done much more. What would he have done? Kept the borders open as he is doing now? Everything is a contradiction.

When Trump tried to reassure the public so as not to create a panic, he was accused of purposefully lying to the American people. Yet this was information he got directly from Fauci and he has never been accused of the same. Fauci waffled back and forth on masks, admitting that he lied to the public about masks not being effective in stopping the spread of COVID. Apparently he did this so there wouldn’t be a shortage for health workers. The press doesn’t seem to have a problem with this.

But if our number-one infectious disease expert admits that he lied to us, how do we know he won’t do it again “for our own good?” What we have learned from all of this is that truth doesn’t matter. As long as the lies are making us feel the way we are supposed to feel, we swallow them.

How were we supposed to know Fauci was right and all the other scientific experts who disagreed with him were wrong? It didn’t matter. There could be no dissent.

I saw how information was kept from the public. I became frustrated and began looking for information elsewhere. I had never really listened to Fox News. So, I checked it out. I quickly learned that I could not share anything I discovered on social media. I would be laughed at, screamed at, and unfriended. I couldn’t say that it was giving me a perspective I wasn’t getting on CNN. Not necessarily right or wrong. Just another perspective. And I needed at least one opposing viewpoint from which to compare the State approved information I was receiving.

New media outlets cropped up like Newsmax. I began to appreciate The Epoch Times. I listened to and watched the videos of journalists like Andy Ngo who were out in the field filming raw footage of the riots that mainstream reporters refused to let us see. I read his book, Unmasked, and learned how he was discredited by mainstream reporters. I have a lot of respect for Andy Ngo and I am grateful for his courageous reporting, in the face of physical attacks and death threats that became so bad, he had to move out of the country.

Way back in April of 2020, Mike Pompeo demanded the truth from Beijing as to whether COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab during experiments and China covered it up by blaming ‘wet’ food markets. This sounded plausible to me. Yet, Pompeo now says he received pushback against any type of investigation. Like so many other plausible theories put forward by Trump and his team, all reference to COVID originating in a lab were removed from the internet. Anyone daring to talk about it was labeled a conspiracy theorist and shut out of their social media accounts.

Now, suddenly, it’s all over the news. A year after TRASHING the theory that COVID originated from a Wuhan lab because Trump supported the suggestion – America’s woke mainstream news outlets suddenly start asking if it’s true!

Why? That is a mystery I would like to find the answer for.

And then there’s Hydroxychloroquine. And, I should add Ivermectin. Although I don’t go into it here, it’s the same scenario and you will see it in the news a lot lately—too late for so many people.

In April 2020, a small French study showed HCQ combined with azithromycin, an antibiotic, was safe and effective in lowering COVID-19’s virus count in patients who had first contracted the disease. Mr. Trump immediately cited the study — as it was good news — the world was at the height of the pandemic and HCQ had been approved and used by physicians for 85 years to treat both malaria and some autoimmune diseases.

Instead of this being greeted as hopeful, it was immediately trashed in the media. Fake news. Not following the science. But I wondered. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Big Pharma in collusion with anyone investing into it had good reason to discredit HCQ. The medication was cheap and easily administered. If millions of people started taking this drug, in conjunction with other therapeutics, and they started getting better, what justification would there be for vaccinating the entire world?

When, in July of 2020, a group calling themselves America’s Frontline Doctors, stood upon the steps of our capital building and spoke of the merits of hydroxychloroquine, describing masks as unnecessary, they were derided as quacks. A video of their impassioned speech immediately went viral and was removed from all social media by the next day.

It became apparent to me that anyone, no matter how prominent, no matter how upstanding, who dared to question the State-sanctioned propaganda were being silenced, discredited and fired from their positions. Why weren’t we listening to them?

If, as Fauci was always saying and continues to say to this day, “we simply don’t know [fill in the blank]”, why wouldn’t they welcome the help of a wider range of expertise? These were doctors who put their reputations on the line to speak out. They were in the trenches, actually treating patients. They weren’t theorists like Dr Fauci, playing god in laboratories, receiving grants from Big Pharma with the understanding they needed to reach the required conclusion.

I was inclined to think maybe these doctors had something important to say. Yet still, when I tried to make that suggestion on social media, again, I was shot down. People were really getting worried about me. I was being brainwashed.

By whom? I was merely comparing possibilities. Once upon a time, that was called critical thinking. Now, everyone’s minds were completely closed to any inquiries. I had never experienced anything like it.

Perhaps future generations will look back on the denial of HCQ and Ivermectin to the public to treat this illness as one of the greatest crimes in history. How many lives could have been saved if these inexpensive and easily accessible drugs, along with other therapeutics, had been used early on? Perhaps millions.

Renowned public health officials from around the world denounced the draconian measures being taken in “The Great Barrington Declaration:”

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

Immediately, all of these experts were discredited and silenced. The all-encompassing power to control information was becoming apparent.

Kary Mullis, the inventor of the PCR test himself said it was not a reliable test for viruses. His words were silenced, or twisted around to mean something else, even though what he said was very plain.

In the meantime, the flu magically disappeared. That was because of masks and lockdowns we were told. But then, why didn’t it work for COVID?

If even the testing method we were using wasn’t accurate, or could be fiddled with to create more or less positive results when needed, how could we be sure of anything?

We have a video from 2017 where Dr. Fauci actually warned of a pandemic and a surprise outbreak. But it doesn’t seem to be of significance.

We have Dr. Fauci’s treasure trove of emails, where it looks like he potentially tried to hide the very real possibility that the virus came from the Wuhan lab. The emails show him flip-flopping on masks, justifying it by saying well, the science changed.

But whose science? When only one voice is allowed—that being the voice of those who have everything to gain from hiding truth—then “science” becomes a tool for control rather than a method by which we find truth.

Despite the revelations, the state-run media, are still enamored with Fauci. Asking him delicate questions, drooling over his sainthood, just as they do over Biden’s grandfatherly and completely nonthreatening demeanor.

That is, except when Biden wakes up long enough, as he did at a recent event, to squint down at a little girl in the audience, of not more than 10 years of age, and say,

I uh, I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”

poll during voting showed that nearly half of Biden voters said their vote wasn’t for Biden so much as it was against Trump.

Anything would be better than that racist maniac Orange Man Bad.

Better to lie, better to have people die without the therapeutic drugs that could have saved them, better to let China off the hook, than to admit Trump was right about anything.

Fill people with so much fear and hatred they don’t suspect the obvious: That the gods behind the curtain; the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, are gaining absolute power over our minds and bodies and we are giving it up to them without blinking an eye.

During the pandemic the nation’s 644 billionaires gained almost $1 trillion in total net worth, according to a new analysis, while the poorer Americans struggle with lost wages and jobs. Doesn’t that mean anything to anybody? Aren’t the implications obvious?

Apparently not. I haven’t finished my Netflix series. Have you seen it? What do you recommend I watch next?

Take care of us. Keep us safe. Lull us to sleep with our smartphones and our drugs, cover our faces, administer our vaccines.

Once Trump was gone, anyone who thought the same, namely anyone who questioned the State, needed to be discredited as well. A line was drawn. There was no middle ground.

Either you were a masker and a vaxxer or you were a heretic. And we all know what happens to heretics.

When January 6th occurred, Biden called it the worst terrorist event in our history. Domestic terrorism, that’s what we are up against now. Even though those who stormed the capital were let in by the police, had no weapons and killed no one. Called murderers when the only person murdered that day was Ashli Babbitt. Journalist Tayler Hansen, @TaylerUSA, who filmed Ashli Babbitt’s death, identified the officer responsible for the shooting as Lieutenant Mike Byrd, a Black man. Hansen was subsequently arrested. True to form, the mainstream media showed no interest in investigating Ashli Babbitt’s death.

Obviously. It would have gone against the narrative.

In a recent speech, Biden declared white supremacists the ‘most lethal threat’ to US, as he marked Tulsa race massacre.

Where is this terrible, out of control threat? To compare what happened that day when a bunch of losers entered the capital—video footage even showing police officers inviting them in—to 9/11 is an insult to all who died when terrorists rammed those planes into the World Trade Center. 2,977 people were killed that day and more than 6,000 injured.

It is an insult to all who died during the BLM and Antifa riots, to those who were trapped inside government buildings when rioters tried to burn them down, to small neighborhood businesses that were destroyed. BLM riots caused over $1 billion of damage, ‘yet media says they’re mostly peaceful’.

Most of all, it’s an insult to the nearly 300 children who were shot and killed in 2020, a 50% increase from 2019, and the more than 5,100 children aged 17 and younger were killed or injured, within their own neighborhoods.

So, who are these white supremacists endangering our country? They are fast becoming defined as every person who does not agree with the State.

How do you succeed in silencing almost 80,000,000 people or maybe even more? Trump warned that when he was gone, his attackers would not be finished. “Then they will come for you.”

Anyone who refuses to submit to this vaccine will receive this label. Anyone who refuses to submit their child to this vaccine will be given this label. It won’t matter whether you voted for Trump or not. That will be the label assigned to you.

Proof of vaccination is already being required in restaurants, where the unvaxxed must sit in a special section, wearing masks.

There are countless cases of employees being fired from jobs for not taking the jab. If you want to keep your job, you better take the jab.

Although we were previously told the federal government would leave mask mandates to local government and businesses, Homeland Security now says it is taking a close look at vaccine passports for international travel.

In January 2021, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced that it plans to require its students to receive the COVID vaccine once it is approved and available. Los Angeles Unified is the nation’s largest school district.

And so, we have now been divided into two camps. The vaxxed and the unvaxxed. Who will suffer the most from this? Who is already suffering the most?

Our children.

I hear from parents that they are receiving messages from schools to get their children on the waiting list to be vaccinated. The vaccine will be available in the fall for kids twelve and up. The parents who contact me are against vaccinating their children and say they will never give in. I don’t think they realize how bad it could get.

All the “good” parents will line up for it. All the “good” children will be rewarded for obeying the State by being allowed to attend school free of masks and lead a “normal” life. The children whose parents refuse will have to continue wearing masks. They will have to sit in a special section, eat and play separately.

As I showed in my previous essay with drugging children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, parents who do not conform to vaccinating their children will be seen as irresponsible. Those who are vaccinated will accuse them of selfishness, just as we see adults accusing the unvaxxed of this. Of putting the entire community as risk.

Imagine being those children, being used as examples of the evils of nonconformity. They will become pariahs among their peers and their teachers. They will be mocked, shamed and shunned.

Already, children at this age just want to fit in. The unvaxxed children will go home and beg for their parents to get them vaccinated. Children will turn against their parents. Those few kids who are natural free thinkers, like Scrubb and Jill, will suffer more than they ever have in the past. They will not even have the satisfaction of being thought of as cool by the outside crowd. There won’t be any outside crowd.

Only the vaxxed and the unvaxxed.

Where adults have been allowed to remove their masks — although many choose not to — children are still being forced to wear them. While the nation debates Dr Fauci’s emails and how much he really knew, how much information was hidden, how deeply involved he was in research at the Wuhan lab; all these things that for so long were labeled conspiracy theories and are now turning out to be true; our children continue to suffer the abuse of covering their mouths and noses eight hours a day both inside the classroom and outside in terrible heat as they attempt to play.

But according to parents I’ve spoken to, when their kids go home, they don’t go outside. Instead, they are on their tablets or i-pads, interacting on Tiktok, Instagram and Snapchat. They are uninterested in exercise. They are terrified of germs. And parents, busy online themselves, are ignorant as to what their children are engaging in.

During April to October 2020 in the US, emergency room visits linked to mental health problems (e.g. anxiety) for children aged 5-11 increased by nearly 25% and increased by 31% for those aged 12-17 years old as compared to the same period in 2019. During the month of June 2020, 25% of persons aged 18 to 24 in the US reported suicidal ideation. While some of this may be related to the pandemic, we suspect that it is largely a function of our response to the pandemic.

While “the most common experiences reported of online issues involved bullying or generally being made to feel uncomfortable, one in three participants reported having had an online sexual interaction,” a report said. Thorn report: Why you kids shouldn’t be on TikTik or Instagram |

Most participants reported receiving a “sext”, while 18 per cent had received a nude photo or video and 18 per cent had been asked to send a nude photo or video.

Children as young as five years old know how to use phones and tablets. It is their language. Jackie, a friend of mine who is a mother of a toddler and a social media influencer on Tiktok says “You wouldn’t believe what children are accessing online nowadays.”

The gods above us use their power to suppress knowledge of all that might expose them as the Machiavellian fraudsters that they are, yet no one is protecting our children from dangerous information.

What is a parent to do?

Move to the country. Start a commune. Start neighborhood learning centers with like-minded parents. I have heard many parents say, “If they try to force me to vaccinate my children, I will take them out.”

All well and good. But there are many who cannot afford to do this. Many will have no choice but to give in to the State. If they don’t, just as happened to parents who resisted putting their children on Ritalin, they will be accused of abuse and perhaps even have their children taken from them.

Just as happened to Patricia Weathers, who in 2020 took her 9-year-old son off an antidepressant and medication similar to Ritalin, because he was constantly gnawing at his shirt collar and had began to hear “voices.”

As a result, her son’s elementary school accused her of medical neglect and called child-abuse investigators. Years of battling the school in the courts took its toll until she finally won in court. But most people don’t have the knowledge or the resources to sustain such a battle.

School officials can force a parent to seek out a professional, such as a psychiatrist. And can they expel a child who doesn’t take medication or intimidate parents by threatening to phone social services or child-abuse investigators? Weathers says that’s what happened to her, and there are reports of other similar cases around the country.

All of this intimidation and training to comply was a precursor to what is happening now. With psychiatric drugs, the only person the State can claim you are putting at risk is your own child. With vaccines, they can claim you are putting the entire country at risk. Millions of lives are on your hands and the hands of other deplorables like you.

My daughter and her husband spent the past year in Slovenia where their two boys, ages three and two, have gone to daycare free of masks. In July, they are moving back to Los Angeles. They are against masks and the vaccine, both for themselves and their children.

They could not find a single daycare in their area that didn’t require children to wear masks.

And those daycares all reassured her — as if it would make her feel better — that once the vaccine was available and the tiny tots had taken it, they would be allowed to go mask free. At last, my daughter found one daycare that didn’t require masks. It was a private Christian school. So, that is where they will put their boys.

We already see signs of Christians schools being demonized.

A March article in Ms Magazine declared How Christian Schools and Homeschooling Teach Supremacist Conspiracies.

Statistically, homeschoolers do much better with learning and their futures than public school children. Yet academics such as Prof. Elizabeth Bartholet, are leading the charge against those who actively resist public schools and she believes that the generation currently being homeschooled is an eventual, if not active, breeding ground for racism, sexism, and isolationism.

“Many homeschool precisely because they want to isolate their children from ideas and values central to public education and to our democracy. Many promote racial segregation and female subservience. Many question science. Many are determined to keep their children from exposure to views that might enable autonomous choice about their future lives,” she claims.

My daughter certainly is not a white supremacist. She is not a Trump supporter. She has no interest in politics. She just wants to follow what she believes is best for her children.

Yet, if things keep going on as they are now, it is quite possible that anyone who doesn’t adhere to the “ideas and values central to public education and to our democracy,” meaning what is acceptable to the totalitarian state, will automatically be considered enemies of the state and as such, in need to reeducation, imprisonment, or perhaps even worse.

Some might accuse me of alarmism. Nothing would make me happier than to be proved an alarmist. However, unless people stand up and speak out, this is surely what we are facing. And I think those who are reading this who don’t want their children submitted to this experimentation and abuse know in their hearts this might well be what they are facing.

I want to end with a little story. I was raised by a Mennonite mother. There was much I rebelled against as a child, teenager. Despite my doubts and rebellions, I always knew I had a history to be proud of; a foundation of strong, courageous people who stood up for what they believed, even in the face of death. Before her passing my mother left each of her children a booklet with the history of our people.

She called the booklet A Far Journey. It tells the story of the Anabaptists who split from the Catholic Church and followed the teachings of a Dutch preacher named Menno Simmons, born in 1496.

This was a time of great upheaval. The Protestants were fighting for the right to free information for all. No longer should the gateway to God be blocked by priests and popes. No longer should the common man be kept from reading and interpreting the Sacred Scriptures for himself. This free information for all, brought about by the invention of the printing press, threatened the hold the powerful had on the ignorant souls beneath them.

Bloody battles ensued. The cause became politicized, of course, and used by both sides to gain more power. But as always, there were the common people who stood up for their rights. The Martyrs Mirror, a collection of records, letters and court accounts tells the stories of many of those who remained faithful and paid the price of their lives.

There is one letter in the collection from Janneken Muntsdorg, written from prison to her one-month-old daughter, also named Janneken. The mother bore her child in prison and the girl was taken from her. Knowing she would never see her daughter again, she wrote a letter for her to read one day. Part of it goes thus:

The true love of God and wisdom of the Father strengthen you in virtue, my dearest child; …and strengthen and confirm your understanding in His truth […] for if we were to continue in the world, we would have had no trouble. For when we were one with the world and practiced idolatry, and loved all manner of unrighteousness, we could live at peace with the world; but when we desired to fear God and to shun such improper ways…then they did not leave us in peace; then our blood was sought; then we had to be a prey to everyone, and become a spectacle to all the world. They seek here to murder and burn us; we are placed at posts and stakes, and our flesh is given as food to the worms.”

Words too drastic? I think not.

I recite these words if only to wake people up from their sleep! If only to remind us that many have gone before who suffered and died for the freedoms we enjoy. The freedoms to read and write, to worship and pray and speak as we choose. Not just for Christians, but for everyone. Everyone. The freedoms to agree and disagree. Even to believe outrageous “conspiracy” theories.

The internet has created a crisis even greater than the invention of the printing press. In those days, the information of the texts was limited to biblical knowledge. As time went on, that information grew. Now, a seemingly infinite wealth of information is at our fingertips. We are being told that information is dangerous. That we need to put it into the hands of the powerful once again. We must trust them as the doorkeepers between our minds and the mysteries of the universe.

Just as the reformers stood up for their rights to interpret texts on their own, so we must stand up for our rights to do the same.

Perhaps the day will come when the individual will submit to the will of the State and we will be more machine than we are flesh and blood. I know men like Elon Musk dream of this. He says we need these changes if we want to explore the universe, to travel to other planets. We need to evolve. I would love nothing more than to explore other planets. Perhaps losing our humanity little by little is the price we must pay for that “advancement.” If science fiction is any indication—and I tend to believe science fiction sometimes more than actual science—this is probably inevitable.

But that day is not today. For now, we must fight for the right to hold onto our freedoms. Oh, we can have intellectual discussions about how we aren’t really “free” and all of that, but I do know the difference between freedom and bondage.

I walked through Dachau as a child. I stood at the Berlin Wall and crossed the barrier from the land of the free into the land of the oppressed. From one step to the next, I passed from light into darkness. I was fortunate. I was allowed to pass back again, horribly aware of all the yearning souls I was leaving behind.

Don’t let the lies lull you to sleep. Don’t let cynicism overcome you.

I have faith that there will always be at least one Scrubb and one Jill in every school. Those who refuse to fit in. Those who still see the mystery beyond the wall.

Those who find the way out of darkness and into light.

I started with Salmon Rushdie and I will end with him. I saw him once at a party at a club, back in the 90s. He was a very ugly man, but he was with a very beautiful woman. I wondered about him. He looked so insignificant, yet what power his words had! So much power that they were dangerous to the regime in Iran and a price was put on his head. Yet there he sat, enjoying his life.

In those heretical Satanic Verses, he wrote:

What kind of idea are you? Are you the kind that compromises, does deals, accommodates itself to society, aims to find a niche, to survive; or are you the cussed, bloody-minded, ramrod-backed type of damn-fool notion that would rather break than sway with the breeze? – The kind that will almost certainly, ninety-nine times out of hundred, be smashed to bits; but, the hundredth time, will change the world.”

We may be smashed to bits. Still, let’s be the ones who change the world.

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (51)

The Forever War Against COVID-19

Gary North ( July 19, 2021

On July 17, the top stories on Drudge’s site were these:

For over a year, governments around the world have put lockdowns and masks at the top of the list to consolidate power. They claim they are saving lives. They are determined to force the public to cooperate in their programs for saving lives.

Bureaucrats who have been elevated to senior positions for the first time in their faceless lives love the attention and the power. Turf defence against any suggestion of the complete removal of lockdowns and intervention is in full-court press mode. The bureaucrats are not going to surrender power. They are not going to admit that the COVID problem was never so great as to justify the interventions, nor are they going to admit the COVID problem has gone away. They are going to maintain turf.

Governments are now justifying maintenance of these controls and even an escalation of additional controls on the basis of a new strain of the disease. It is not clear that it is deadly. It is not clear that it is highly contagious. It is not clear that any of the vaccines will work against it. But it is clear that some portions of voting public can still be conned into believing that they are at risk.

At the same time, the other side of the debate, the hard-line anti-vaxers and the deniers of the existence of the disease are uniting in their continued opposition. They are never going to believe that this disease was or is a major threat. They are going to fight the government tooth and nail on these issues. The government is going to fight back.

I think the vast majority of people are pretty much fed up with the whole charade. They do not want to be vaccinated. They do not want to wear the masks. They think COVID has gone away, and they want the controls to stay away. I do not see many masks these days.

I do not think most people can be whipped up into hysteria again on the basis of a new strain of the disease. It is clear that there will always be new strains of this disease. It is also clear that government bureaucratic agencies are going to try to make the best of this in order to defend their turf, their budgets, their authority, and their ability to push people around.

The longer that this division goes on, the more voters will be pushed into the camp of the COVID disbelievers. People who have had enough of the masks are going to conclude that the new strains are not major threats unless there is overwhelming statistical evidence that there is a threat. I do not think such evidence is going to appear.

Nevertheless, Treasury Secretary Yellen says that lockdowns may be necessary again. She is clueless politically. She is not alone.

Government, officials who keep pushing the public where the public no longer wants to go will find that there is a backlash. These politicians are going to lose their positions in the next electoral cycle. This is a good thing.


One of the articles on Drudge’s site reported the following.

President Biden on Friday accused Facebook of “killing people,” just after White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is “in regular touch” with the platform to ensure correct “narratives” are promoted — elaborating on her Thursday admission that the White House is “flagging problematic posts” to censor.

Biden was asked about his message for platforms like Facebook as he departed the White House on Friday afternoon for a weekend trip to Camp David.

“They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people,” Biden said.

At her daily press briefing, Psaki told reporters that the White House is “regularly” coordinating with Facebook and other social media giants on the “latest narratives dangerous to public health” that the administration thinks should be censored.

“We are regularly making sure social media platforms are aware of the latest narratives dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of social and traditional media,” Psaki said.

“There’s about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms,” she said.

Psaki also said the White House is encouraging social media companies to alter their algorithms to promote “quality information” and for platforms to act in unison to ban certain people.

“You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others,” she said.

The Democrats just cannot stop. They want control over the social media. They are convinced that this issue is high on the voters’ agenda. They think that they have leverage with the broad mass of voters on this issue. They are convinced that they are in the right morally. They are convinced that the government should back up social media’s de-platforming. This is a matter of power, and they love power.

This is going to backfire. They are creating hard-core resistance. They are not going to gain public support for this kind of behaviour. But they do not understand this. They think the public is really on their side.

These people are blind. They are betting the electoral farm on an issue that a large segment of the public no longer believes is significant. They are trying to whip up support for more coercion against people who are expressing their opinions on an issue that is fading from the public’s concern.

The unreality of all this is significant. Biden is trying to breathe life into what is becoming a dead political issue. He does not have that much political capital. He is squandering it on COVID.

There is not going to be a wave of new controls to fight the latest strain of this fading disease. The public is not going to cooperate again. Voters are convinced that the threat is no longer there. They are also tired of wearing masks. The Biden administration is increasingly spinning its wheels in the sand. It is running out of time to get its agenda through the 50-50 Senate.


This indicates just how out of touch Biden and his administration are. Biden has been unable to get his agenda through a split Senate. He does not have a mandate from the public. Yet he acts as though he is in the catbird seat. He acts as though his program will be confirmed in the next congressional elections.

He is no longer talking about imposing new taxes on the public. He is not speaking out against Trump’s tax cuts. He is proposing an increase of the marginal tax rate to 39.6%, up from 37%. That is essentially chump change. It is no threat to the super-rich, who do not pay anywhere near the top tax rate. He is making it clear to Bernie Sanders and his followers that they are dispensable. The Sanders wing of the party is being hung out to dry. This is good news.

So, let him fight the new strain of COVID. That will keep him busy until the next round of congressional elections.

Moderna Rep Admits Everyone Is Part of Huge Experiment

By Joseph Mercola July 14, 2021

In the featured video, which aired June 22, 2021, independent reporter Stew Peters plays an audio recording1 made by a young woman who suddenly developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after her Moderna injection. Her neurologist believes her condition is the direct result of the COVID shot.

While the neurologist filed an adverse event report with the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), the woman decided to report it to Moderna as well. The Moderna rep does not appear the least surprised by the injury, and appears to admit he’s received similar reports before.

Everyone Who Gets the Jab Is Part of the Safety Trial

During that call, the Moderna representative reads her the following disclaimer:

“The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has not been approved or licensed by the Food and Drug Administration, but it has been authorized for emergency use by the FDA under an emergency use authorization to prevent coronavirus disease 2019, for use in individuals 18 years of age and older.

There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The EUA for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is in effect for the duration of the COVID-19 EUA declaration, justifying emergency use of the product unless that declaration is terminated or the authorization is revoked sooner.”

The rep also points out that all clinical trial phases are still ongoing, and that long-term protective efficacy against COVID-19 is unknown. When the patient asks whether everyone who gets the COVID shot — even if they did not specifically sign up to be a trial participant — is in fact part of the clinical trial, he replies, with a chuckle, “pretty much, yeah.”

So, in a nutshell, while vaccine makers, health authorities, mainstream media, social media platforms like Facebook and public advertisements tell you the vaccine has undergone rigorous testing, has been “approved” and is safe and effective, none of those claims are true.

The shots have received emergency use authorization only, which is completely different from regular FDA approval and licensing. They don’t know how effective the shot is, or how long the effects last, and they don’t know if it’s safe, because the trials have not been completed. In fact, the public vaccination campaign is a big part of those trials, whether people realize it or not.

Children Are Being Coerced into Medical Experimentation

This makes the push to inject children and teens all the more disturbing. Vaccine manufacturers have received EUA for children as young as 12,2 and parents are now being told their children “must” participate in what is a medical experiment.

People are being told it’s their social “duty” to participate in a medical experiment. People are told they have to participate in a medical experiment or lose their job or educational prospects. What’s happening here is no different than being told you “must” participate in a new cancer drug trial in order to keep your job or attend school. It’s completely absurd, unethical and illegal.3,4,5

When people do get the shot, they are not informed that they’re taking part in a medical experiment and they’re not asked to sign a consent form (as this particular requirement is waived under EUA rules). While consent forms are waived under an EUA, providing truthful information about potential side effects is not.

It’s really important to realize that coercing people to participate in medical experimentation violates long-established research ethics rules. If you wanted to perform a medical study and decided to lure participants with free ice cream or a free Playstation, the ethics committee would shut down your project.

The problem here is that the COVID-19 injection trials have no oversight boards. There’s no Data Safety Monitoring Board, no Clinical Event Committee and no Clinical Ethics Committee. This despite the fact that such oversight is standard practice for all human research. If such committees do exist, they’ve not been announced and no standard reports have been published.

Myocarditis Update

Peters also addresses an increasingly common side effect, namely myocarditis, i.e., heart inflammation. Animal research performed by Masonic Medical Research Institute researchers in collaboration with the Boston Children’s Hospital was posted on the preprint server bioRxiv, June 20, 2021.6The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein subunit directly damages the heart and causes myocarditis by triggering an exaggerated immune response — a cytokine storm — in the heart cells.

The study, “Selectively Expressing SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein S1 Subunit in Cardiomyocytes Induces Cardiac Hypertrophy in Mice,”7 found that the spike protein itself (without the rest of the virus) “directly impairs endothelial function.” As it turns out, the S1 subunit of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein activates NF-kB, a protein that controls not only the transcription of DNA but also cellular survival, cytokine production and secondary inflammation.

This disease process does not involve the ACE2 receptor but rather the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), which is responsible for the detection of pathogens and the initiation of innate immune responses. In summary, the research showed spike protein subunit “caused heart dysfunction, induced hypertrophic remodeling and elicited cardiac inflammation.”

“Since CoV-2-S does not interact with murine ACE2, our study presents a novel ACE2-independent pathological role of CoV-2-S [SARS-CoV-2], and suggests that the circulating CoV-2-S1 [CoV-2-spike protein subunit 1] is a TLR4-recognizable alarmin that may harm the CMs [cardiomyocytes, i.e., heart cells] by triggering their innate immune responses,” the authors state.8

In short, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein subunit directly damages the heart and causes myocarditis by triggering an exaggerated immune response — a cytokine storm — in the heart cells.

Importantly, hypertrophic remodeling means this is a permanent reshaping and damage of the heart, which refutes claims that the hundreds of myocarditis cases reported to VAERS are of little concern and that their hearts will eventually heal. I believe those assumptions will be found to be wrong, and that many of them may be left with permanently damaged hearts.

‘They Knew What They Were Doing’

As noted by Jane Ruby, Ph.D., on the Stew Peters Show, this research should have been done before these injections were put out into the public domain. Instead of conducting rigorous animal trials, vaccine makers are using the public as guinea pigs in one of the biggest experiments in human history, making tens of billions of dollars in profits while enjoying absolute immunity from any damage their experimental jabs cause.

By falsely labeling these gene modification tools as vaccines (because gene therapy does not qualify as a pandemic treatment that can be granted immunity against liability), they’ve been given the green light to conduct human experimentation without remuneration, informed consent or liability under the guise of a public health emergency.

There’s no way these gene therapies in any rational society would have been released to be tested on this many human subjects, including pregnant women and children, were it not for this sinister misrepresentation.

Here’s the most disturbing part, though: It appears these COVID injections may have been designed to cause this kind of cell damage on purpose. Why? Because the researchers also tested the natural spike protein subunit of another coronavirus called NL63.

This virus was chosen because it, like SARS-CoV-2, uses the ACE2 receptor for entry into the human cell. The NL63 spike protein did not, however, trigger this kind of heart damage. “They knew what they were doing when they engineered this mRNA to make this particular spike protein,” Ruby says.

Pfizer Injection Victim Speaks Out

In the video above, Peters interviews Stevie Thrasher, a previously healthy 29-year-old in Washington state who got her first Pfizer shot April 27, 2021. Since then, she’s been hospitalized nine times, and her doctor has confirmed her injuries are a direct result of the Pfizer mRNA injection. Her neurologist has told her not to get a second dose.

One of her first symptoms was severe menstrual bleeding. After that, she started experiencing severe body pains, muscle weakness and muscle failure, fatigue, dizziness and disorientation. Since her shot, she’s been in the hospital nine times, had three neurological evaluations and received referrals to rheumatologists and immunologists.

Remarkably, despite the severity of her symptoms, all tests, including imaging and blood work, appear normal, with the exception of an ANA blood test (a test that detects antinuclear antibodies that can attack your own tissues) indicating she might have an autoimmune condition, although it’s unclear which one.

Her doctors have thus far been unable to explain why her test results are all normal while she’s clearly experiencing symptoms of disease, and all she’s been diagnosed with so far is “adverse reaction to Pfizer COVID vaccine with myalgias.” As you can see in the video above, she has involuntary tremors. She says they come and go depending on circumstances. Triggers include sunlight, heat, elevation, stress and physical activity.

While Thrasher was warned of the possibility of blood clots and anaphylactic reactions, she was not informed there may be neurological and autoimmune side effects. “If I had known this was a possibility, I would have turned around and ran,” she tells Peters.

Unvaccinated Falsely Accused of Being ‘Disease Factories’

Adding insult to injury, mainstream media are now pushing the idea that those who refuse the COVID shot are to blame for the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants, even though a number of health experts have warned that it’s the complete opposite — that mass injections, causing a very narrow band of antibodies, are forcing more rapid mutations of the virus.9

It’s a general principle in biology, vaccinology and microbiology, that if you put living organisms like bacteria or viruses under pressure, via antibiotics or antibodies, for example, but don’t kill them off completely, you can inadvertently encourage their mutation into more virulent strains. Those that escape your immune system end up surviving and selecting mutations to ensure their further survival.

If an individual who does not have a narrow band of antibodies becomes infected, then, if mutation does occur, it’s far less likely to result in a more aggressive virus. So, while mutation can occur in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, vaccinated individuals are actually far more likely to pressure the virus into a mutation that strengthens it and makes it more dangerous. Alas, according to CNN:10

“Unvaccinated people do more than merely risk their own health. They’re also a risk to everyone if they become infected with coronavirus, infectious disease specialists say. That’s because the only source of new coronavirus variants is the body of an infected person.

‘Unvaccinated people are potential variant factories,’ Dr. William Schaffner, a professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, told CNN … ‘The more unvaccinated people there are, the more opportunities for the virus to multiply,’ Schaffner said.”

What Schaffner and CNN fail to address is the confirmed fact that the COVID shot does not provide immune protection against a SARS-CoV-2 infection. So those who have gotten the injection can also become hosts to the virus, just like those who have haven’t been scammed into taking the COVID jab.

There’s absolutely no medical justification for singling out unvaccinated people as the sole disease vectors, or the sole vectors for mutation. Breakthrough cases in fully “vaccinated” people prove this point. Unfortunately, vaccinated individuals are not informed about the potential that they might experience antibody‐dependent enhancement (ADE) or paradoxical immune enhancement (PIE), which may actually render them more susceptible to infection by variants.11

If that turns out to be the case, and there are already indicators suggesting this is happening,12,13,14,15,16,17 then vaccinating even more people is not the answer. Unvaccinated individuals cannot be held responsible for what happens to those who volunteered to take part in this mass experiment, or be asked to “save” those people by putting their own health at risk.

Control Groups Destroyed on Purpose

Disturbingly, all the evidence points to vaccine makers and health agencies not wanting to identify problems with these shots. Despite this being the largest medical experiment in human history, vaccine makers are purposely eliminating their control groups so that injuries will be far more difficult to ascertain, since they won’t have anything to compare the vaccine recipients against.

In a JAMA report,18 Rita Rubin, senior writer for JAMA medical news and perspectives, quotes the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed, Moncref Slaoui, Ph.D., saying he thinks “it’s very important that we unblind the trial at once and offer the placebo group vaccines” because trial participants “should be rewarded” for their participation.

Such statements violate the very basics of what a safety trial needs, which is a control group against which you can compare the effects of the drug in question over the long term. I find it inconceivable that unblinding was even considered, seeing how the core studies have not even concluded yet, and some standard safety studies have been bypassed entirely.

For example, Pfizer has not conducted any reproductive toxicology studies despite finding the mRNA and spike protein accumulates in the ovaries. The only purpose of this unblinding is to conceal the fact that these injections are unsafe. Safety evaluations have also been undermined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which chose not to require vaccine makers to implement robust post-injection data collection and follow-up on the general public.

What Is the Mass Injection Campaign Really All About?

It’s obvious the COVID injection manufacturers intentionally removed every safety monitoring control because they wanted to obfuscate the anticipated complications that were certain to occur. They wanted to prevent as many complications as possible from surfacing. Safety is clearly not something they are concerned about.

Think about it: If the vaccination campaign were about creating a high rate of immunity within the population, they would accept natural immunity to COVID as an alternative to the jab. But they don’t. Even if you can prove you have high levels of antibodies from natural infection, you still must get the COVID shot if you want to attend school or keep your job in some areas, and natural immunity does not count if you want a COVID immunity passport.

This means the injections are NOT about creating herd immunity. They want a needle in every arm for some other reason. What do you think that reason might be? Many who have pondered this question have reached the conclusion that whatever the reason might be, it’s a nefarious one.

At a minimum, this campaign is about getting a needle in every arm to maximize their profits. At its extreme worst, it could be part of a cleverly constructed depopulation strategy.

Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., a life science researcher and former vice-president and chief scientist of allergy and respiratory research at Pfizer, has gone on record saying he believes the COVID-19 injections, and the upcoming boosters in particular, are a “serious attempt at mass depopulation.”19

In my view, there are still so many potential avenues of harm and so many uncertainties, I would encourage everyone to do your homework, keep reading and learning, weigh the potential pros and cons, and take your time when deciding whether to get any of these COVID-19 gene therapies. If you have already had one, think long and hard before getting any boosters.

COVID Vaccine Deaths and Injuries Are Secretly Buried

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola July 1, 2021

  • Reports of deaths and serious injuries from the COVID-19 jabs mount by the day. As of June 11, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had posted 358,379 adverse events, including 5,993 deaths and 29,871 serious injuries
  • In the European Union’s database of adverse drug reactions from COVID shots, called EudraVigilance, there were 1,509,266 reported injuries, including 15,472 deaths as of June 19, 2021. EudraVigilance only accepts reports from EU members, so it covers only 27 countries. Remarkably, about HALF of all reported injuries — 753,657 — are listed as “serious”
  • The British Yellow Card system had, as of June 9, 2021, received 276,867 adverse event reports following COVID “vaccination,” including 1,332 deaths
  • Before you make the decision to participate in this unprecedented health experiment, it may be wise to assess your personal insurance and financial ability to handle a serious injury, as pandemic vaccine manufacturers are indemnified against lawsuits
  • If you are injured by a COVID shot and live in the U.S., your only recourse is to apply for compensation from the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Act (CICP). Payouts are rare, cover only lost wages and unpaid medical bills, cannot be appealed, are capped around $370,000 for death, and require you to exhaust your private insurance before kicking in

Reports of deaths and serious injuries from the COVID-19 jabs have been mounting with breakneck rapidity. Those who look at the numbers and have some awareness of historical vaccine injury rates agree we’ve never seen anything like it, anywhere in the world. While data can be hard to come by for some countries, the ones we can check reveal deeply troubling patterns.

•United States — As of June 11, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had posted 358,379 adverse events,1 including 5,993 deaths and 29,871 serious injuries. In the 12- to 17-year-old age group, there were 271 serious injuries2 and seven deaths. Among pregnant women, there were 2,136 adverse events, including 707 miscarriages or premature births.3

All of these are bound to be undercounts as, historically, less than 10% of vaccine side effects are reported to VAERS.4 An investigation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services put it as low as 1%.5,6

Be that as it may, the reported rate of death from COVID-19 shots now exceeds the reported death rate of more than 70 vaccines combined over the past 30 years, and it’s about 500 times deadlier than the seasonal flu vaccine,7 which historically has been the most hazardous.

The COVID shots are also five times more dangerous than the pandemic H1N1 vaccine, which had a 25-per-million severe side effect rate.8,9 Assuming the COVID shots had the same side effect rate, and assuming some 200 million got the vaccine, the estimated number of people suffering a serious side effect would be about 5,000. We’re well past that already, as 35,86410 people have been seriously injured or killed.

Even though there are nearly 6,000 reported deaths in VAERS, this number is likely seriously compromised. I recently interviewed Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who has treated COVID patients quite successfully, and we discussed the very distinct possibility that everyone who receives the COVID jab may die from complications in the next two to three years.

He personally knows of 28 COVID jab deaths that were not accepted by VAERS. Zelenko suspects the number of deaths may exceed 100,000 already.

Getting the COVID jab immediately places the injected individual in the very high risk of dying from COVID. Most have the false assurance that they are protected, but in reality, they are far more vulnerable and as a result will not take very aggressive proactive measures to avoid dying from pathogenic priming or paradoxical immune enhancement before it is too late.

Please be sure and make a notation in your calendar to review my groundbreaking interview with Zelenko this Sunday, July 4, 2021, which is only three days away. We will review protocols you can use to protect you and your family or those you love, who now regret getting the COVID jab.

•European Union — In the European Union’s database of adverse drug reactions from COVID shots, called EudraVigilance, there were 1,509,266 reported injuries, including 15,472 deaths as of June 19, 2021.11 EudraVigilance only accepts reports from EU members, so it covers only 27 of the 50 European countries.

Remarkably, about HALF of all reported injuries — 753,657 — are listed as “serious,” meaning the injury is life-threatening, requires hospitalization, results in a medically important condition, significant disability or persistent incapacity.

•U.K. — The British Yellow Card system had received, as of June 9, 2021, 276,867 adverse event reports following COVID “vaccination,” including 1,332 deaths.12

•Israel — According to a report by the Israeli People Committee, a civilian body of health experts, “there has never been a vaccine that has harmed as many people.”13 For example, Israeli data show boys and men between the ages of 16 and 24 who have been vaccinated have 25 times the rate of myocarditis (heart inflammation) than normal.14

(Myocarditis is also affecting teens and young adults in the U.S. Although CDC officials say no confirmed deaths have been reported, at least two deaths have been linked temporally to the vaccine.15,16,17,18,19)

•Australia — In Australia, two people have died from blood clots after taking AstraZeneca’s COVID shot. Meanwhile, only one person — an elderly woman — has died from COVID-19 this year.20,21

If Something Goes Wrong, You’re on Your Own

The pain and suffering these shots have already created is hard to imagine. Clearly, millions around the world have had their lives turned upside down by them. Many may not recover, physically or financially. It’s really important to realize that if something goes wrong, you’re largely on your own.

Before you make the decision to participate in this unprecedented health experiment, it may be wise to assess your personal insurance and financial ability to handle a serious injury, as pandemic vaccine manufacturers are indemnified against lawsuits. You cannot sue them for damages. Nor can you sue the government or anyone else.

If you are injured by a COVID shot and live in the U.S., your only recourse is to apply for compensation from the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Act (CICP), under which COVID-19 vaccines are a covered countermeasure.22 The CICP is run by a sparsely staffed agency under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Details and hyperlinks to benefit request forms can be found in the Congressional Research Service’s legal sidebar, “Compensation Programs for Potential COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries.”23 You cannot apply for and will not receive compensation from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which covers other vaccines, including the flu vaccine.

Compensation from CICP is very limited and hard to get. In its 15-year history, it has paid out just 29 claims, fewer than 1 in 10.24,25,26 You only qualify if your injury requires hospitalization and results in significant disability and/or death, and even if you meet the eligibility criteria, it requires you to use up your private health insurance before it kicks in to pay the difference.

The average CICP award is $200,000, and death cases are capped around $370,000. Meanwhile, you can easily rack up a $1 million hospital bill if you suffer a serious thrombotic event.

There’s no reimbursement for pain and suffering, only lost wages and unpaid medical bills. This means a retired person cannot qualify even if they die or end up in a wheelchair. Salary compensation is of limited duration, and capped at $50,000 a year. On top of all that, you cannot appeal the CICP’s decision. Appeals simply get reviewed by another staff member in the same office.

Can You Afford a COVID Shot Injury?

Even if they can get it, CICP awards are likely to be a drop in the bucket for most people. The average award is $200,000, and death cases are capped at $370,376.27 Meanwhile, you can easily rack up a $1 million hospital bill if you suffer a serious thrombotic event.28 You must also pay for your own legal help and any professional witnesses you may need to support your claim.

In early June 2021, KRDO news reported29 on the case of Kendra Lippy, a 38-year-old woman who had no health complaints prior to getting her Johnson & Johnson shot. Within a week, she developed headaches, abdominal pain and nausea. Her diagnosis: Severe blood clots that progressed into multiple organ failure and coma.

She had to have most of her small intestine removed and will need total parenteral nutrition for the rest of her life — a feeding method that bypasses her gastrointestinal tract. She was hospitalized for 33 days, including 22 days in the intensive care unit. She now needs occupational and physical therapy to regain basic functions like walking, writing and holding a fork.

Lippy’s hospital bill already exceeds $1 million, a sum she’ll likely never be able to pay off, and there’s no telling what kind of medical treatment she’ll need in years to come. Clearly Lippy is headed for bankruptcy, and medical bills are the most common cause in the U.S.

Additional Stipulations That Make Payouts Rare

There are also time stipulations. You must file a request for benefits within one year of the date the vaccine was administered in order to qualify. This is a serious barrier, as serious side effects can take time to develop. For example, after the 2009 swine flu pandemic, people started reporting Guillain-Barre syndrome years after getting the pandemic H1N1 vaccine. At that point, they no longer qualified.30

Worst of all, however, is the fact that it is now your responsibility to prove your injury was the “direct result of the countermeasure’s administration based on compelling, reliable, valid, medical and scientific evidence beyond mere temporal association.”

In other words, you basically have to prove what the vaccine developer itself has yet to ascertain, seeing how you are part of their still-ongoing study! The CICP is also notoriously secretive about why claims are approved or rejected. As reported by the Insurance Journal, “it doesn’t release even the most basic details such as the kinds of sicknesses people claim they got from vaccines.”31

As of June 1, 2021, 1,360 Americans had sought compensation from the CICP for injuries and deaths arising from pandemic countermeasures, but only 869 were deemed eligible to file a claim.32 None has been adjudicated. Professor Peter Meyers, a former director of the Vaccine Injury Litigation Clinic, who has referred to the CICP as a “black hole process,”33 warns that it’s a “lousy program.” He told Life Site News:34

“It’s a secretive, opaque program whereby some unknown officials within the Department of Health and Human Services will make decisions; we don’t know how many people are adjudicating, who they are, or what the process is.”

The secrecy means there are no official statistics on the types of injuries people are filing for, or what countermeasure is said to have caused their injury. By the way, vaccines are not the only countermeasures shielded from liability. Hospital treatment errors are shielded too, and we know some hospitals routinely killed patients, whether they had confirmed COVID-19 or not, by placing them on ventilators even when they didn’t need it.35

Can You Trust These White-Collar Criminals?

As mentioned, pandemic vaccine makers are shielded from financial liability. The only way you can sue is if you can prove “willful misconduct,” such as deliberate deception, fraudulent behavior or hiding relevant information. To get around this, vaccine makers may simply not look for certain problems.

The potential for infertility is a perfect example. The spike protein is suspected of having reproductive toxicity, and Pfizer’s biodistribution data show it accumulates in women’s ovaries.36 Despite that, Pfizer did not perform any reproductive toxicology tests. Since they didn’t look, they can with a straight face say they “didn’t know” the shot might cause reproductive failure. The thing is, they should have suspected it, and done the tests to make sure.

Already, we’re seeing signs of reproductive toxicity. Data suggest the miscarriage rate among women who get the COVID “vaccine” within the first 20 weeks of pregnancy is a whopping 82%. The normal rate is 10%, so this is no minor increase. Infertility will be far more difficult to ascertain, and could take decades.37

In a May 28, 2021, letter to the editor of The New England Journal of Medicine, Drs. Ira Bernstein and Sanja Jovanovic and Deann McLeod, HBSc, of Toronto, pointed this out by highlighting that preliminary safety studies published in the NEJM in April 2021 were in error by including “clinically unrecognized pregnancies” in them.38

They included adjusted graphs reflecting this, and asked the study’s authors to remove the erroneous data but, interestingly, their letter disappeared from the internet the last week of June, although it was still in Wayback archives as of June 27, 2021. Coincidentally, June 17, 2021, the NEJM republished the April study with no explanation as to why it was being republished and with no adjustments to the data.

Considering the criminal history of Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca, it’s hard to understand how millions of people trust these companies not to lie in order to make a buck. As reported by Life Site News:39

“Just three main vaccine makers, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca, have been ordered by state and federal courts to pay a combined more than $8.6 billion in fines to resolve dozens of allegations of criminal and civil misconduct.

Pfizer alone was fined $2.3 billion — the largest such settlement in history, according to the Department of Justice — for willfully defrauding and misbranding its drugs that had already been yanked from shelves for their documented dangers.

But for six whistleblowers who brought evidence forward against the company, it may have continued misbranding and selling its dangerous wares.

‘We’ve made a trade-off in America,’ said Meyers, in giving vaccine manufacturers liability protection to ensure that they will keep making vaccines that, before legal immunity, were bogged down in lawsuit litigation for side effects.

Manufacturers who make cars or ladders or other products can be sued if they are faulty. Vaccine makers have blanket liability to ensure their products are produced, government funding to produce them, ensured government orders for products, government-paid mass-marketing and mandates …

‘The tradeoff seems unfair today because the CICP program is such as flawed program,’ said Meyers, particularly when vaccine companies are raking in colossal profits (Pfizer is set to haul in $26 billion from its COVID vaccines this year and COVID vaccine manufacturing is churning out billionaires whose annual salaries are multiples of a decade of CICP payouts to dozens of people).

The CICP benefits are ‘stingy compensations,’ he added, for people who are suffering and waiting in the face of corporate greed and government opacity. Notwithstanding the drug companies’ criminal records, Meyers thinks they would be ‘crazy to risk misconduct.’ If it turned out that vaccine makers were actually hiding information on risks of COVID vaccines, he said, ‘it would be a catastrophe.'”

Are Government and Big Pharma Guilty of Willful Misconduct?

I don’t know about you, but the feeling I get when I look at the cascade of injuries and deaths occurring within days or in many cases mere hours after injection is that something is terribly amiss, and vaccine makers are sweeping it all under the rug. Isn’t that willful misconduct? Failing to perform reproductive toxicology tests after they discover that spike protein accumulates in the ovaries — isn’t that reprehensible willful misconduct?

Continuing to claim that the mRNA stays in the shoulder muscle when they have data showing it gets distributed into virtually all organs in the human body — isn’t that hiding important information? Isn’t that reprehensible willful misconduct?

I would argue that government officials are also guilty of medical maleficence. As noted by Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine core platform technology,40 the most current version of the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) that governs these COVID shots reveals the FDA opted not to require stringent post-vaccination data collection and evaluation, even though they had the power to do so.

Again, if you don’t look for injuries, you’re unlikely to find them. If there’s no robust data collection and review process, they can say the shots are safe and shuttle them through the licensing process far more easily. The problem they’re now facing is that VAERS is getting such an overwhelming number of reports that even if they account for only 10% of actual injuries, or less, it’s absolutely unmistakable that there are serious problems.

Failing to require vaccine makers to put together a comprehensive system to capture adverse event data is a sign of incompetence at best. But that’s not all. The FDA really starts appearing deceitful when refusing to acknowledge that the VAERS reports indicate there are problems.

To call “coincidence” more than 35,000 times is simply not believable, and to dismiss the risks of permanent disability and death as being “worth it” is beyond heartless, seeing how we have safe and effective treatments and no one actually needs to gamble their health on an experimental gene therapy.

COVID Shots Are Clearly Riskier Than Advertised

As noted in a June 22, 2021, Wall Street Journal article,41 while VAERS cannot tell us whether the shots were causative in any given side effect report, when you see clusters of reports that form a trend, it’s time to investigate.

Four serious adverse effects that are currently trending are thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), non-infectious myocarditis (heart inflammation), especially in those under 30, deep-vein thrombosis and death.42

In order for such effects to be tolerable, even if rare, the vaccine (or drug) would need to be absolutely crucial for survival. Think of a highly infectious pandemic of Ebola, for example — something where death is swift and virtually assured, and treatment, once infected, is ineffective.

None of those criteria apply to COVID-19, which has a lethality rate on par with the seasonal flu for all but the elderly and those most frail. The vaccine would also need to be an actual vaccine — something that provides immunity. COVID-19 gene therapy injections don’t do that either.

Overall, it’s clear that deaths and injuries from these shots are being swept under the rug, and we cannot allow that to continue. We must keep pushing for transparency, honesty and accountability.

Remember, mark your calendar to view my groundbreaking interview with Dr. Vladimir Zelenko this Sunday, which is only three days away. We will review protocols you can use to protect you and your family or those that you love who now regret getting the COVID jab.

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (48a)

Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Tell the sons of Israel to turn back and camp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; you shall camp in front of Baal-zephon, opposite it, by the sea. For Pharoah will say of the sons of Israel, ‘they are wandering aimlessly in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.’ “Thus I will harden Pharoah’s heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be honored through Pharoah and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord,” and they did so (Ex.14:1-4).

Egypt’s plagues were against Egypt’s gods, and were God’s means of demonstrating His judgment to Egypt, and grace to Israel.

Biblically, Israel in the Old Testament being set free from Egypt, is a picture of the church in the New Testament, set free through the work of Jesus Christ, and enjoying the liberty of the Gospel. Paul explains bluntly, that

It was for freedom that Christ set us free… (Gal.5:1).

Christians in any part of the world shouldn’t think that our freedoms in Christ are always secure. The devil would relish seeing God’s people coming under forms of control, and he’ll use whatever means he can to do so. A very common means historically, have been ruthless, devious political leaders, like Pharoah, Herod or England’s King John. And there have been a multitude of these types in our modern era.

I’ve felt that all the government “information” around Coronavirus has dripped with deception, right from the beginning. Yes, people have died from the virus, just as millions die internationally from all kinds of flu annually, but it’s never been called a “pandemic” before, except perhaps in 1918.

His emails from early in 2020 make it plain that Tony Fauci, the man on charge of the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) in the US, knew that what happened in China could easily go around the world, but he’s denying responsibility. It’s also evident that he’s friends with some big Pharmaceutical companies, who want to sell vaccinations by the millions to a trusting public. Those companies might just have a vested interest in the broad community being kept in the dark.

Fauci has refused to provide simple, preventative advice for people to take cheap and practical steps to protect themselves from the virus, such as Vitamins C and D. Nor has he wished to recommend (as any good GP would), the two drugs which have a proven track record for coronavirus, hydroxychoroquine, and ivermectin, and which are also very cheap.

Worse, the major vaccine producers have long histories of criminal convictions for fraud, with fines running to billions. This gets worse and worse.

Fauci has been the head of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984. In the 37 years since, he’s been responsible for doling out research funding that amounts to nearly $1 trillion. Who has received those taxpayer dollars? Primarily those who are aligned with the drug industry. It’s become an incestuous relationship that revolves around the creation of profit, while the public receives virtually no benefit.

In fact, in many cases, public health has suffered tremendously, and people have no concept of what has happened, or how their ill health is the outgrowth of corrupted policies and conflicts of interest.[1]

Millions have died, and Fauci’s still on the public purse, supported by the President. What happened to your Centre for “disease control,” Tony?

And in Australia, political leaders today have hardened their hearts. You protest?

They often call in the police, and some arrests especially in Victoria have been suspect, and will finish up in court. Clearly, this has been an opportunity for governments around the world to be oppressive and brutal, and they’re taking it.

Why? Because they can, so they do, and in far too many cases, the church has been silent, and thus complicit in an international disaster.

But, it’s been great to hear a dissenting voice. H.G. Mar Mari Emmanuel, a Greek Orthodox Bishop in Sydney, has publicly questioned the legitimacy of the lockdowns. Well, here’s a breath of fresh air!

So, in all this, I’m actually encouraged by what’s been happening. Around the world over the weekend of 24/25th July, there were lots of public protests and marches, and that included Australia. Accompanying this public protest, have been displays of astonishing ineptitude by political and bureaucratic leaders, who clearly have no understanding of what successful leadership requires from individuals.

When the Premier of the State of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian imposes a lockdown on Sydney, and requires that everyone in Sydney wears a mask, but takes it upon herself to go out in public to buy coffee without a mask, or even think she has some obligation to do so, her credibility becomes somewhat strained. Is this leadership?

Then when her Health Minister defends her, claiming that her private life is no concern of others in the community, it looks hopelessly hypocritical. It is.

Lead by example? Don’t think so!

If they foul their nest, they foul their nest. Their ineptitude is sad and pitiful, and they may well get what they deserve: public condemnation for unjustifiable, evil acts of community abuse.

Ancient Baalism was a religion of the State, proclaiming that the State was ultimate. Today, anyone would think from the public statements of our “leaders,” that the State is ultimate. Well, God will have the last word on that one, just as He did with Pharoah.

People are tired from lockdown frustration and inconvenience, not to speak of course of the income individuals and businesses have been compelled to forego, or the taxes we’ll have to come up with, for years. The political manufacturers of the Coronavirus propaganda are beginning to lose their authority, their credibility’s being questioned, and it won’t get any better for them. This is a reason for Christians to rejoice and be glad.

But much more than that, it’s a time for the church to finally wake up and begin to speak the truth about the loss of freedoms, the pointless lockdowns, the restraint of trade imposed on the community, not to speak of religious freedoms to simply meet together, being curtailed.


Lockdowns, restrictions on movement, social distancing regulations, State border closures and compulsory wearing of masks, are all oppressive measures against individuals, families, churches and other groups in the community. Furthermore, it’s highly debatable that they have any positive consequences for anyone.

But the gospel of Jesus Christ is entirely different, and it has outcomes that are spiritual, social, economic and political-even educational.

It is incumbent on the church to proclaim the truth of the gospel, in all of its facets. It confronts all oppression, which is why the enemies of God have always tied to suppress its proclamation. And its why believers, in their covenant faithfulness to God, must boldly declare now that every oppressive measure that has been laid upon the community with coronavirus propaganda must be rejected, out of hand.

Why? Because

…if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (Jn.8:36).

Canadian surgeon FIRED for voicing safety concerns over Covid jabs for Children

Dr Francis Christian, practising surgeon and clinical professor of general surgery at the University of Saskatchewan, has been immediately suspended from all teaching and will be permanently removed from his role as of September.

Dr Christian has been a surgeon for more than 20 years and began working in Saskatoon in 2007. He was appointed Director of the Surgical Humanities Program and Director of Quality and Patient Safety in 2018 and co-founded the Surgical Humanities Program. Dr. Christian is also the Editor of the Journal of The Surgical Humanities.

On June 17th Dr Christian released a statement to over 200 of his colleagues, expressing concern over the lack of informed consent involved in Canada’s “Covid19 vaccination” program, especially regarding children.

To be clear, Dr Christian’s position is hardly an extreme one.

He believes the virus is real, he believes in vaccination as a general principle, he believes the elderly and vulnerable may benefit from the Covid “vaccine”…he simply doesn’t agree it should be used on children, and feels parents are not being given enough information for properly informed consent.

Interestingly, even the World Health Organization partially endorses this position, since April their website on vaccination has read:

Children should not be vaccinated for the moment. There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

That was not enough to save Dr Christian. That is how frighteningly intolerant of diversity of opinion the mainstream – and especially academia – has become.

On June 23rd Dr Christian was called into a Zoom meeting with other senior members of the faculty and representatives of the Saskatchewan public health authority. In this meeting he was informed of his immediate suspension and upcoming termination.

The most disturbing aspect of the situation is the way the other people present, most especially Dr Susan Shaw, are trying to position themselves as concerned for Dr Christian’s mental health. It is gaslighting in its purest form, and reminiscent of the worst kind of totalitarian societies.

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (47)

By Paul Craig Roberts (, 23/6/2021

How many Americans are as brave as Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley, who announced he would give up playing football before he submits to the NFL’s vaccine protocols?

Health care employees and many other Americans are experiencing pressure to accept vaccination or be fired. For example, a hospital in Texas has made vaccination a condition of employment. I can understand the reluctance of a nurse or doctor, who has witnessed severe injury and death to those who were vaccinated, being unwilling to subject themselves to the risk. They have exposed themselves for 16 months to risk of infection by treating those who are infected. Now they are declared to be a risk to patients because they are not vaccinated and are pressured to accept the high risk of injury from the vaccine.

David Ramsey offers advice to one nurse:

Notice how quickly American corporations have taken to the idea that they have the right to make deeply personal decisions for employees. It is no longer just US presidents, such as Bush and Obama, who claim authority to set aside our constitutional protections and throw us in prison and execute us without due process, private profit-making corporations are now asserting the right to make our personal decisions.

What does this tell us about the belief in freedom in America? It tells us that it is the last thing public and private leaders think about. Freedom? What is that? The right to disagree with the government, the boss, the media? That’s terrorism. That’s conspiracy theory. That’s being uncooperative. Take off the tinfoil hat and do as you are told.

This is what everyone who works for a US corporation experiences. Take the vaccine. Don’t use these pronouns. Go to sensitivity training. Submit! Submit! Submit!

That is America today. Notice how quickly it came on us. Compare today with 16 months ago and observe the rapid erosion of freedom.

During the 20th century Cold War, Americans heard about “captive nations.” Today America is a captive nation.

Employers’ demands that employees submit to vaccination are not merely assertions of authority over personal decisions and violations of freedom. A lot of evidence indicates that vaccination mandates endanger people’s lives. Much evidence indicates a high incidence of death and serious injury associated with Covid vaccination and that the vaccine itself is causing the variants. See below for one such warning.

The scientific evidence should be publicly debated. Instead, the evidence is suppressed. If the evidence is mistaken, it should be easy to show that to be the case. So why is it suppressed instead of examined and debated? How can it be that corporate executives and boards can be ignorant of the dangers to which they demand employees subject themselves?

Is this a plot against life as people increasingly believe, or is it just stupidity and incompetence on the part of those in leadership positions. Neither answer is reassuring.

Dr. Peter McCullough provides one of the many unambiguous warnings issued by highly qualified experts, people far more knowledgeable than Tony Fauci, a medical bureaucrat whose lifetime work has been to maximize the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.

Dr. Peter McCullough – COVID Vaccines Have Already Killed 50,000 Americans. Is the United States gearing up to force people to submit to vaccination?

Dr. McCullough is Vice Chief of Internal Medicine at Baylor University, editor of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine, senior editor of the American Journal of Cardiology, editor of the textbook Cardiorenal Medicine, and president of the Cardiorenal Society.

“The first wave of the bioterrorism was a respiratory virus that spread across the world, and affected relatively few people—about one percent of many populations—but generated great fear,” McCullough explained during the Oval Media webinar with other doctors. He noted that the virus targeted “mostly the frail and the elderly, but for otherwise well people, it was much like having the common cold.”

Dr. McCullough has treated many patients with the disease, written papers on it, had the disease himself, and has also seen a death in his own family due to COVID.

He believes that fear of the virus was used very quickly to generate policies that would hugely impact human life, such as the draconian lockdowns.
“Every single thing that was done in public health in response to the pandemic made it worse,” he pointed out.

McCullough explained that early on, as a doctor treating COVID patients, he came up with an early treatment regimen for those struck with the virus, which reduced hospital stays by about 85 percent, and said he began publishing papers on what he had learned. The doctor noted that he was “met with resistance at all levels” in terms of actually treating patients and publishing his papers.

“Fortunately I had enough publication strength to publish the only two papers in the entire medical literature that teaches doctors how to treat COVID-19 patients at home to prevent hospitalization,” he said.
“What we have discovered is that the suppression of early treatment was tightly linked to the development of a vaccine, and the entire program—and in a sense, bioterrorism phase one— was rolled out, and was really about keeping the population in fear, and in isolation preparing them to accept the vaccine, which appears to be phase two of a bioterrorism operation.”
McCullough explained that both the coronavirus and the vaccines deliver “to the human body, the spike protein, which is the gain of function target of this bioterrorism research.”

He acknowledged that he couldn’t come out and say this on national television because the medical establishment has done such a thorough job of propagandizing the issue.
“What we have learned over time is that we could no longer communicate with government agencies. We actually couldn’t communicate with our propagandized colleagues in major medical centers, all of which appear to be under a spell, almost as if they’ve been hypnotized.”
“Good doctors are doing unthinkable things like injecting biologically active messenger RNA that produces this pathogenic spike protein into pregnant women. I think when these doctors wake up from their trance, they’re going to be shocked to think what they’ve done to people,” he said, echoing what he, and Dr. Harvey Risch, professor at the Yale School of Public Health, told Fox News host Laura Ingraham during an interview last month.

Last summer McCullolugh started an early treatment initiative to keep COVID patients out of the hospital, which involved organizing multiple groups of medical doctors in the United States and abroad.  The doctor noted that some governments tried to block these doctors from providing the treatments, but with the help of the Association of Physicians and Surgeons, they were able to put out a home patient guide, and in the U.S., organized four different tele-medical services, and fifteen regional tele-medical services.
This way, people who were stricken with COVID-19, were able to call in to these services and get the medications they needed prescribed to local pharmacies, or mail order distribution pharmacies, he explained.
“Without the government really even understanding what was going on, we crushed the epidemic curve of the United States,” McCullough claimed. “Toward the end of December and January, we basically took care of the pandemic with about 500 doctors and telemedicine services, and to this day, we treat about 25 percent of the U.S. COVID-19 population that are actually at high risk, over age 50 with medical problems that present with severe symptoms.”

“We know that  this is phase two of bioterrorism, we don’t know who’s behind it, but we know that they want a needle in every arm to inject messenger RNA, or adenoviral DNA into every human being,” he said. “They want every human being.” The doctor later warned that the experimental vaccines could ultimately lead to cancers, and sterilize young women.
Dr. McCullough said his goal is to set apart a large group of people that the system cannot get to, which would include those who have already had the virus, those with immunity, children, pregnant women, and child-bearing women.
The cardiologist went on to say that because there is no clinical benefit in young people whatsoever to get the vaccine, even one case of myocarditis or pericarditis following the shots “is too many,” yet even though the CDC is aware of hundreds of alarming reports of cases of heart swelling in teenagers and young adults, they’re only going to reevaluate the matter later on in June. He accused the medical establishment of neglecting to to do anything to reduce the risks of the vaccines.

As someone who has chaired over two dozen vaccine safety monitoring boards for the FDA, and National Institute for Health, McCullough had room to criticize how the vaccines have been rolled out.
“With this program, there is no critical event committee, there is no data-safety monitoring board, and there’s no human ethics committee. Those structures are mandatory for all large clinical investigations, and so the word that’s really used for what’s going on is malfeasance, that’s wrongdoing of people in authority,” the doctor explained.
“Without any safety measures in place, you can see what’s going on,” he continued.
“Basically it’s the largest application of a biological product with the greatest amount of morbidity and mortality in the history of our country.”
“We are at over 5,000 deaths so far, as you know, and I think about 15,000 hospitalizations. In the EU it’s over 10,000 deaths. We are working with the Center for Medicaid (CMS) data, and we have a pretty good lead that the real number is tenfold.”
McCullough explained that because the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database only amounts to about 10 percent of the bad reactions to the vaccines, his team has had to go to other sources for information.
“We have now a whistleblower inside the CMS, and we have two whistleblowers in the CDC,” the doctor revealed. “We think we have 50,000 dead Americans. Fifty thousand deaths. So we actually have more deaths due to the vaccine per day than certainly the viral illness by far. It’s basically propagandized bioterrorism by injection.”
Dr. McCullough said he’s seen people in his office with cases of portal vein thrombosis, myocarditis, and serious memory problems post-vaccination. “It’s so disconcerting,” he said.

“If you said this is all a Gates Foundation program to reduce the population, it’s fitting very well with that hypothesis, right? The first wave was to kill the old people by the respiratory infection, the second wave is to take the survivors and target the young people and sterilize them,” he said.

“If you notice the messaging in the country, in the United States, they’re not even interested in old people now. They want the kids. They want the kids, kids, kids, kids kids! They’re such a focus on the kids,” he said, noting that in Toronto, Canada, last month, they lured the children with promises of ice-cream to get the jab. According to one report, the government of Ontario—-which doesn’t require parental consent for children to get vaccinated—-encouraged the kids to get the Pfizer vaccine at a pop-up vaccine event.
“They held the parents back, and they were vaccinating the kids,” the doctor reported. He said his Canadian wife’s mother was forcibly vaccinated against her will.
McCullough predicted that the United States is gearing up to force people into getting the injections.
“We have to stop it, and we have to see what’s behind it,” he concluded.

What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Covid-19 Vaccines

By Bill Sardi June 15, 2021


“Be sure you are right, and then go ahead”
— Davy Crockett

I’ve said it many times, most Americans are not comfortable with making independent decisions, especially potential life-and-death healthcare decisions posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is as if Americans must make a group decision, which gives rise to the term “sheeple” to describe modern-day Americans.  It almost seems as if opposition to experimental vaccination is unamerican.  If only the “sheeple” knew.

Decisions to vaccinate made along political lines

It appears Americans are making momentous decisions to undergo experimental vaccination, that will have a lasting positive or negative effect their lives, largely along political lines rather than cautious analysis with regard to personal safety and effectiveness.

Most of what many Americans hear or read about COVID-19 is pro-vaccine propaganda which slants virtually all of the information, leaving the lay public with a choice to pick the vaccine they would prefer rather than to deal with the question whether they should vaccinate at all, which is what informed consent is all about.

It may come as a surprise to learn that no vaccine is totally safe or effective, especially an experimental RNA or DNA vaccine that uses unproven technology.

At the risk of ruining a night’s sleep and causing high anxiety, what will the many millions of Americans who have already been vaccinated think when they learn the mortality rate for vaccinated individuals is greater than the mortal risk from the virus? (see below)

The decision to vaccinate may follow along family lines

Candidates for vaccination are likely to make their decisions to immunize as a family which may be why vaccination correlates with political party affiliation.

Eight in ten Democrats say they have already gotten at least one dose of the vaccine or will soon do so, but only 55% of Republicans; 1 in 5 Republicans say will “definitely not” get vaccinated, according to a May 6, 2021 survey by the by the Kaiser Family Foundation.  The VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) reports 34% of Americans have not been fully vaccinated as of May 11, 2021.

Many will delegate the decision to inoculate to a physician

Not understanding all of the medical jargon nor other complexities themselves, most people are expected to punt and delegate the decision to vaccinate to their trusted doctor.  Surveys bear this out.  However, it is difficult to find anybody in the field of healthcare who doesn’t have a conflict of interest on this issue.

News media censorship

News media censorship is another factor, making it difficult for independent-minded parties to properly assess the pros and cons of vaccination.  If the COVID-19 vaccines were all that they are advertised to be, no censorship would be necessary.

The very idea of pressing for universal vaccination using vaccines that are experimental, and for which there is incomplete data on side effects, should cause vaccine candidates to delay their decision till more data is available.  Especially since all the lab animals given RNA vaccines against coronaviruses succumbed to vaccine-induced side effects.  The pressure by government health authorities and the news media to hurriedly vaccinate suggests some other agenda.

One of the hidden factors that could be causing health agencies to pressure patients to vaccinate could be the upcoming data on the BCG tuberculosis vaccine which in population studies has been shown to drastically reduce risk for COVID-19 infection.  The first of many BCG vaccine studies is due to be reported in July of 2021.  Will a vaccine that has been around since 1921 upstage the new RNA-DNA vaccines?

COVID-19 Is Not Ten Times More Fatal Than The Flu

Probably the most misleading claim is that the COVID-19 coronavirus is 10 times more deadly than the seasonal flu.

Google reports 600,000 COVID-19 related deaths among 33.4 million positive tests, of which at least 40% of cases were false positives (June 11, 2021 data).  Deduct that 40% and you have ~20 million cases and 360,000 deaths over a 1.5- year period, or ~1.8% mortality rate or 18 per 1000, which is misleading.

The director of the Institute for Infectious Diseases, Dr. “trust the science” Fauci, quoted this number in Congress and said COVID-19 results in at least 10-times greater lethality than the seasonal flu.

Let’s recalculate.  Flu deaths are ~0.1% (1 in 1000).  But the estimated 360,000 deaths when divided by the US population of 328,000,000 is 1/10th of one-percent, about the same mortality rate as the flu.

In Denmark, a country where the notoriously inaccurate PCR test was not relied upon, but blood serum tests were, the death rate for COVID-19 was only 0.16% (1.5 in 1000, not even 1%), about the same as the flu.

False advertising: COVID-19 vaccines are not 95% effective against COVID-19

Here is what Americans are told: In a clinical trial involving 30,000 subjects, Moderna’s RNA 2-shot vaccine resulted in 11 cases of infection versus 185 in the placebo group.  That sounds very convincing.  But understand, among 30,000 study participants, 29,804 people had to be needlessly subjected to an experimental vaccine to achieve those numbers.  Only 0.0065% (6.5 per 1000) were infected with COVID-19 using the notoriously inaccurate PCR test + 1 symptom to confirm infection.  The so-called number-needed-to-treat was 153 to prevent 1 case of the flu.  Compare this with the fact 99.6% of unvaccinated subjects recovered from the flu on their own at home.

The statistical difference between Moderna at 0.00073% infection rate and placebo at 0.00123% is just 0.0005% in hard numbers (5 out of 10,000 difference), not even 1% better than placebo, and not the advertised 0.95% effectiveness.

Furthermore, vaccine trials cannot possibly indicate whether these injections save lives.  That is because mortality is not being measured. None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome, including hospitalization or death.

“Hospitalizations and deaths are just too uncommon in the population being studied for an effective vaccine to demonstrate statistically significant differences in a trial of 30,000 people,” says Peter Doshi, associate editor of the British Medical Journal.

But vaccination is causing infections rates to dive, right?  Wrong.

Based on vaccine adoption numbers, apparently Americans obviously don’t feel they have been misled, even after the CDC stopped reporting how many vaccinated individuals experienced mild or asymptomatic cases on its website and only reports those breakthrough cases that resulted in hospitalization or death.

For inexplicable reasons most Americans opting for immunization don’t feel misled by the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that early-on used a different threshold to inaccurately produce seemingly high infection rates.  The threshold was then lowered (from as high as 35 to 28 doubling cycles), which was changed downward as more Americans were immunized to falsely make it appear vaccines were having an impact on infection rates.  The public was none the wiser.

A requirement that PCR tests not exceed 28 doublings would have precluded 90% of the cases from being reported as positive.  The World Health Organization denies it raised the bar for infection.  True.  But the CDC did.  In fact, the PCR test is known to cause pseudo-pandemics.  That is why COVID-19 is guaranteed to never end.  There will be no return to normal.

Absurd denial RNA-DNA COVID-19 Vaccines are experimental

The denial that COVID-19 vaccines are “experimental gene therapy” is also bogus.  For example, RNA vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer) by definition utilize RNA to provoke antigens (a toxin that provokes the human immune system to respond) for long-term immunity.  According to a recent report, it is possible RNA can be re-written into DNA!

It is said that RNA degrades after it does its job.  Specific antibodies against COVID-19 are then armed to kill off future exposure to COVID-19.

But one thing that has been learned in this pandemic is that antibodies don’t last forever.  It is memory T-cells, made in the thymus gland, that provide life-long immunity.  Antibodies and T-cells remain substantial up to 6 months following infection, though there is a decline.

Virologists believe many people infected with COVID-19 “will probably produce antibodies against this virus for most of their lives,” antibodies being produced from the bone marrow for long-term immunity.  However, booster shots will be needed to deal with genetic variants, just like trivalent annual flu shots with three strains of influenza are administered annually (though flu shots often don’t address the flu strain in circulation in any given flu season and are often ineffective).

According to the CDC, except for immune compromised patients, replication-competent COVID-19 coronavirus particles are not found among infected patients 10 days following symptom onset.  Exposure to viral variants may induce re-infection, which minimizes the long-term effectiveness of vaccination, which is why CDC recommends continued social distancing and face masks.

However, the idea of locking down the country or practicing continued infection control measures is needlessly silly, even draconian, given that COVID-19 doesn’t cause any more death than the flu.

Don’t presume vaccination is needed to achieve long-term immunity.  Conclusive studies show natural immunity (without vaccination) produces long-term immunity.  Vaccination is not necessary.  The human immune system is making vaccines look good.  Researchers have found 70% of uninfected individuals already have coronavirus-specific killer T-cells!

Importance of zinc over vaccination

Of interest is that most high-risk groups for infection are at the same time found to be zinc deficient.  T-cells rely on zinc to be produced in the thymus gland.  A national policy of encouraging zinc adequacy is needed.  Zinc is sparse in foods except for oysters.  Across the board zinc supplementation would probably be more effective than universal vaccination.  Given that 50% of the patients who died of COVID-19 had bacterial or fungal co-infections, zinc would be even more efficacious.  Zinc-deficient COVID-19 patients develop more complications (70.4% vs 30.0%). Zinc also inhibits the abnormal clumping of red blood cells that is a major cause of death among COVID-19 patients.

Properly-dosed zinc lozenges are preferred during active infection over zinc tablets.  In one study, symptoms among zinc-treated patients began to improve after 1.6 days whereas non-zinc-treated patients began improving after 10 days.  Shortness of breath was not seen 7 days after zinc lozenges.

Vaccines ARE experimental

That the news media currently pans current COVID-19 vaccines as not being experimental is totally fallacious.  The very application to FDA to proceed with vaccination was based upon emergency clearance for the use of new unproven vaccine technology that has never been widely tested on humans before.  Emergency use vaccines are by definition experimental.  Without inflated mortality numbers emergency use would have never been granted.  Informed consent is required for vaccination but is being waived, which is required for all vaccines regardless of their experimental status.

What is the risk for dying from COVID-19 versus dying from the vaccine?

For Americans under age 50 the chances of dying from serious side effects induced by the vaccine are worse than dying from COVID-19 itself.

Unprecedented vaccine-related deaths mounting

How many Americans have heard that 1,750 vaccine-related deaths occurred in the first 3 months of 2021 which has now jumped to 5,997 deaths in early June, an unprecedented number in the history of VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).  There is a backlog of reports at VAERS and these numbers will continue to skyrocket upwards.

Will current vaccines protect against new gene variants of COVID-19?

Americans are being urged to vaccinate because a viral variant that is sweeping through India is expected to reach the US within a week, but that gene variant that produced 42 fatalities occurred in 30% of those who had been vaccinated!

Ivermectin to the rescue (but not in the USA)

In the MODERNA trial mentioned above, 196 participants succumbed to COVID-19 infection out of 30,000 subjects; 185 in the placebo group and only 11 in the Moderna group.

If the 196 cases of infection were successfully treated with medicine, this would be advantageous over problematic vaccines.

Hence, an effort to censor the fact an antiparasitic drug, Ivermectin, has been successfully used to quell an out-of-control pandemic in Chapas, Mexico when vaccination failed (see graphic below).  Yet scientists complain Ivermectin is ruining their vaccine trials.

Here is what happened when Ivermectin was introduced in Slovakia

The most vulnerable should wait

The decision to be immunized against the mutated COVID-19 coronavirus also follows typical innovator, early adaptor, late adapter, laggard adoption periods.  The group most vulnerable to vaccine side effects or ineffective inoculation, the elderly, Black Americans, and those with autoimmune diseases and organ transplants, were urged to vaccinate first when they should have been the last to do so.  Furthermore, why would the entire military be coerced to vaccinate before knowing long-term effects?

Lied to

Most Americans are being spoon-fed false assurances the vaccines are safe and effective before long-term data is available.  Some of the information potential vaccinees are using to make decisions is patently misleading or false on its face.  Yet when confronted with this misinformation, at this point Americans apparently don’t feel they have been lied to or misled, as they just need some way to overcome their fears and anxiety.

What was the respiratory disease outbreak in the US in late 2019?

China is asking the US to explain what the respiratory disease outbreak was that occurred in the US in late 2019 before the COVID-19 virus was reported in the news media? Patient No. 1 may have been in Toledo, Ohio in 2018 and was linked with the use of e-cigarettes and vaping.

American author Nathan Rich, reporting from China, asks why a mysterious lung syndrome in the US, linked with vaping, that had the same symptoms as COVID-19, suddenly vanished the moment COVID-19 cases were reported in the US.  Too many smoking guns.  Where there is smoke there is fire.

Guinea pigs for the slaughter: making money off your death

There is plenty of online evidence the director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, OK’d gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China (in 2012 he even bragged it was worth the risk even if it did increase the risk for a pandemic.  In 2017 Dr. Fauci threatened the US was going to face a future infectious disease outbreak if Congress didn’t adequately fund his institute.

Profiteering off your dead body

And now for the final rub.  Somebody is already betting on your death.  Dr. Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, noted for his “gain-of-function research involving coronaviruses, lectures an audience in 2018 on how to profit off of investments from the coming pandemic, and that a vaccine can be purchased ahead of the outbreak to protect yourself against the upcoming catastrophic infection.

Hey you sheeple, this guy is talking about slaughtering the herd and making money off of YOU.  He is the wolf.  You are the sheeple.  How good do you feel about vaccination now?

If COVID-19 coronavirus is such a deadly threat, why haven’t 130 countries even administered a single vaccine over the year of the pandemic?

In fact, 99.6% of Americans under age 50 recovered from COVID-19 infection on their own and 60% have antibodies against this mutated virus without vaccination.

Anti-vaxxers believe in myths.  Sure they do.

Among the refusers, the survey indicates they are likely to believe at least one vaccine myth (which are not myths at all).  Vaccination of children inexplicably aligns with parents’ own vaccination intentions, even though their children are at almost zero risk for death from the virus.

Those who hesitate to vaccinate are more likely to believe vaccines may change your DNA (actually, they may).

Before long-term data is available and with cloaking of the safety data, this vaccine is being deemed to be safe and effective, which it is not.  In fact, prior to the availability of these vaccines, federal health advisors assumed four coronavirus vaccine trials will fail.

Don’t be gullible (or should I say don’t be “cullable).  In a report I wrote recently I pointed out that Medicare is relying on 362,000 COVID-19-related deaths among Medicare patients to balance its budget.

What are vaccinated Americans to do?

Ivermectin, Covid-19, And Why It Could Be Miraculous

By Ira Katz June 10, 2021

I hope you have heard about Ivermectin, not only because of its almost miraculous development, efficacy and safety; but also because it could become the ultimate red pill.

First the history of Ivermectin. I quote at length from an important review paper by Dr. Pierre Kory (and others notably Dr. Paul Marik) of Front Line doctors. The Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance is the source of the best medical protocols for treating Covid-19. I have left the reference links in the passage.

History of ivermectin

In 1975, Professor Satoshi Omura at the Kitsato institute in Japan isolated an unusual Streptomyces bacterium from the soil near a golf course along the southeast coast of Honshu, Japan. Omura, along with William Campbell, found that the bacterial culture could cure mice infected with the roundworm Heligmosomoides polygyrus. Campbell isolated the active compounds from the bacterial culture, naming them “avermectins” and the bacterium S. avermitilis for the compounds’ ability to clear mice of worms.7 Despite decades of searching around the world, the Japanese microorganism remains the only source of avermectin ever found. Ivermectin, a derivative of avermectin, then proved revolutionary. Originally introduced as a veterinary drug, it soon made historic impacts in human health, improving the nutrition, general health, and well-being of billions of people worldwide ever since it was first used to treat onchocerciasis (river blindness) in humans in 1988. It proved ideal in many ways, given that it was highly effective, broad-spectrum, safe, well tolerated, and could be easily administered.7 Although it was used to treat a variety of internal nematode infections, it was most known as the essential mainstay of 2 global disease elimination campaigns that has nearly eliminated the world of two of its most disfiguring and devastating diseases. The unprecedented partnership between Merck & Co. Inc, and the Kitasato Institute combined with the aid of international health care organizations has been recognized by many experts as one of the greatest medical accomplishments of the 20th century. One example was the decision by Merck & Co to donate ivermectin doses to support the Mectizan Donation Program that then provided more than 570 million treatments in its first 20 years alone.8 Ivermectin’s impacts in controlling onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis, diseases which blighted the lives of billions of the poor and disadvantaged throughout the tropics, is why its discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2015 and the reason for its inclusion on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “List of Essential Medicines.” Furthermore, it has also been used to successfully overcome several other human diseases and new uses for it are continually being found.7

Following are the section headings from Dr. Kory’s paper.

“Preclinical studies of Ivermectin’s activity against SARS-CoV-2”

“Preclinical studies of ivermectin’s anti-inflammatory properties”

“Exposure prophylaxis studies of ivermectin’s ability to prevent transmission of COVID-19”

“Clinical studies on the efficacy of ivermectin in treating mildly ill outpatients”

“Clinical studies of the efficacy of ivermectin in hospitalized patients”

“Ivermectin in post-COVID-19 syndrome”

“Epidemiological data showing impacts of widespread ivermectin use on population case counts and case fatality rates”

He then sums up this evidence in the section called “The evidence base for ivermectin against COVID-19” that I quote below, once again with reference links intact.

“To date, the efficacy of ivermectin in COVID-19 has been supported by the following:

  1. Since 2012, multiple in vitro studies have demonstrated that Ivermectin inhibits the replication of many viruses, including influenza, Zika, Dengue, and others.917
  2. Ivermectin inhibits SARS-CoV-2 replication and binding to host tissue through several observed and proposed mechanisms.18
  3. Ivermectin has potent anti-inflammatory properties with in vitro data demonstrating profound inhibition of both cytokine production and transcription of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), the most potent mediator of inflammation.3739
  4. Ivermectin significantly diminishes viral load and protects against organ damage in multiple animal models when infected with SARS-CoV-2 or similar coronaviruses.31,32
  5. Ivermectin prevents transmission and development of COVID-19 disease in those exposed to infected patients.4045
  6. Ivermectin hastens recovery and prevents deterioration in patients with mild to moderate disease treated early after symptoms.45,4952,61,62
  7. Ivermectin hastens recovery and avoidance of ICU admission and death in hospitalized patients.45,51,53,6366
  8. Ivermectin reduces mortality in critically ill patients with COVID-19.45,53,63
  9. Ivermectin leads to temporally associated reductions in case fatality rates in regions after ivermectin distribution campaigns.48
  10. The safety, availability, and cost of ivermectin are nearly unparalleled given its low incidence of important drug interactions along with only mild and rare side effects observed in almost 40 years of use and billions of doses administered.75
  11. The World Health Organization has long included ivermectin on its “List of Essential Medicines.”

A summary of the statistically significant results from the above controlled trials are as follows. Note that RCT is for randomized controlled trial and OCT is for observational controlled trial.

“Controlled trials in the prophylaxis of COVID-19 (8 studies)

  1. All 8 available controlled trial results show statistically significant reductions in transmission.
  2. Three RCTs with large statistically significant reductions in transmission rates, N = 774 patients.4446
  3. Five OCTs with large statistically significant reductions in transmission rates, N = 2052 patients.4043,47

Controlled trials in the treatment of COVID-19 (19 studies)

  1. Five RCTs with statistically significant impacts in time to recovery or hospital length of stay.45,49,53,64,65
  2. One RCT with a near statistically significant decrease in time to recovery, P = 0.07, N = 130.54
  3. One RCT with a large, statistically significant reduction in the rate of deterioration or hospitalization, N = 363.49
  4. Two RCTs with a statistically significant decrease in viral load, days of anosmia, and cough, N = 85.57,60
  5. Three RCTs with large, statistically significant reductions in mortality (N = 695).45,60,65
  6. One RCT with a near statistically significant reduction in mortality, P = 0.052 (N = 140).53
  7. Three OCTs with large, statistically significant reductions in mortality (N = 1688).51,63,66

If reading scientific literature is not your thing, watch the long form Pierre Kory interview with Bret Weinstein to have a sense of how well and in so many ways Ivermectin could end the pandemic in a matter of weeks. As a follow up, see Weinstein and his wife Heather Hying on their Darkhorse Q&A for a discussion of plotted data for Indian states that employed Ivermectin.

The last section heading in the review paper before the Discussion is called “Safety of ivermectin.” In my view the safety is obvious by the fact that it has been widely and safely used for decades. Consider this quote from a paper in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization | August 2004, 82 (8)3-571. “Adverse events associated with ivermectin were of only mild to moderate severity, and in all cases they resolved spontaneously. Abdominal discomfort, the most common adverse event, is probably caused by worms dying and disintegrating, especially Ascaris lumbricoides.”

Or this 2013 paper called “Strongyloides stercoralis: A Plea for Action”. “Despite many remaining grey areas, the existing evidence calls for the following urgent, essential steps to be taken:” Among these steps we find “Ivermectin should be made available for mass treatment in countries/areas with high prevalence.”

Wait, there is more! This drug not only has been widely used and is prevalent throughout the developing world, but it is very inexpensive! Maybe 1000 times cheaper than Remdesivir.

Thus, it cannot be stated too strongly that Ivermectin may be the greatest drug ever found/discovered and this drug is almost too good to be true for treating Covid-19.Yet given this great news, what has been the response in the developed world? Crickets! But not only that, social media has actively suppressed discussion of this miraculous potential. Furthermore, as the Mint News reports (my emphasis), “In a sweeping shift in the treatment of covid-19 patients, the Union health ministry has removed usage of popular drugs such as Ivermectin, Azithromycin, Doxycycline, Zinc, Favipiravir and plasma therapy.” The questioning of Ivermectin by the same people pushing the experimental vaccines (or should I say gene therapies) is beyond the pale. The words that come to my mind are chutzpah, audacity, cheek, nerve, and gall.

What is going on? Who is behind the suppression of Ivermectin?.Many people are starting to recognize the evil descending on the world. Weinstein described it as akin to gravity, there being a great mass that we cannot see but we can feel its pull.

This is why I think Ivermectin might provide another miracle. With its incredible pedigree anyone who is confronted with the fact of its existence and the evidence compiled by Dr. Kory with the total black out of news will immediately be red pilled. Thus, the more people know thi story the more demands there will be to determine who/why Ivermectin has been suppressed. This would truly be a miracle and the answer to my own prayers. So please, spread the word Ivermectin to anyone who will listen. This could be the biggest story of our lifetime.

Coronavirus and the Country’s Future (44a)

The rich man is wise in his own eyes, but the poor who has understanding sees through him (Prov.28:11).

It’s been astonishing to watch something I’ve never seen before: the use of medical propaganda to mislead whole nations, possibly even much of the world. Governments, particularly those with a Welfare State mentality, have been duped by a host of medical bureaucrats who want us to believe they care for us.

I’m not convinced they do. They definitely care about themselves, their career and their longevity in their positions. That’s the way of all bureaucrats. The common person had better understand that his interests and his health, have never been the concern of bureaucrats, at least, not in my lifetime. Mises wrote a book on this in 1944.

The U.S. Cardiologist Doctor Peter McCullough has been quite forthright on this subject. His attitude is that there really has been a Covid Conspiracy, working against the public. He’s figured out low-cost ways of dealing with the coronavirus, but has had to work against systemic opposition within the medical establishment, even though he was successful in treating large numbers of patients.

He writes that

What we have learned over time is that we could no longer communicate with government agencies. We actually couldn’t communicate with our propagandized colleagues in major medical centers, all of which appear to be under a spell, almost as if they’ve been hypnotized.

Whatever could be the goal of all of this? He explains:

What we have discovered is that the suppression of early treatment was tightly linked to the development of a vaccine, and the entire program—and in a sense, bioterrorism phase one— was rolled out, and was really about keeping the population in fear, and in isolation preparing them to accept the vaccine, which appears to be phase two of a bioterrorism operation.

This means that we have to recalibrate. We have to think about what is being claimed and foisted upon us by political leaders and bureaucrats, and consider the whole matter, independently.

All of the controls, the lockdowns, the fear campaigns, and pressure to vaccinate immediately, have been with a view to manipulating a trusting, vulnerable population to be vaccinated.

But guess what? We saw a headline recently:

4,000 Vaccinated people in Massachusetts test Positive to the Virus

McCullough concluded that

Basically it’s the largest application of a biological product with the greatest amount of morbidity and mortality in the history of our country.

People who think it’s the job of their government to keep them safe, place themselves in a  perilous position. Governments don’t know how to keep people safe, and never have. My safety is best left with me, and those immediately around me, because

Where responsibility rests, authority lies.

If I think it’s a good idea that the government should try to keep me safe, I’ve committed myself into their hands, and they will accept that responsibility, gladly.

But, I’d rather look after myself. Why? It’ll be safer, cheaper, and much more reliable.

When the Welfare State accepted responsibility for the Education, Health and Welfare of its citizens, two things happened. First, the costs to the citizen escalated dramatically. And second, the quality of the provision dropped, just as dramatically.

Civil government is not a parent, caring for a child. But, it is an institution with power, and it will use it, gladly. It was the governing Committee of Public Safety that was responsible for the slaughter of 35,000 to 40,000 innocent individuals, during the French Revolution. Isn’t there a faint irony, in that?

Angela Codevilla recently pointed out that:

In fact, the bureaucracy’s, the intelligence agencies’, the armed forces’ actions against republicans are not errors. They are the oligarchic regime’s acts of war. As the majority of Americans grasp that reality, they deprive the regime’s powers of the legitimacy that gives them force.[1]


If we want to make any progress out of this dreadful Coronavirus hole, it will begin in our hearts and minds, and our expectations of government being very sharply reduced. For, as Mises wrote

Government interference always means either violent action or the threat of such action…. Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen. The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning. Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.[2]
