We Must Remove Them All

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Do We Deserve the Country They Built?

When one thinks about what form the post-COVID word will take, one thing nags at me above all others. All of these public officials who have been willing to strip from us our civil liberties, often without any legitimate authority to do so, will be left in place to do this to us again the next time somebody decides “necessity” demands it.  I don’t care if they’re Republican or Democrat or Independent.  I don’t care whether they’re a lowly County Commissioner, a County judge, a mayor, a school superintendent, or a Governor.  None of these people have the authority they’ve seized, and as courts continue to make that point abundantly clear, I think it’s up to us to examine our own behaviors in response to these various mandates, decrees, and executive dicta that have so thoroughly demolished American life.  We must never permit this again, and indeed, we must put a stop to its continuance now. In order to see this through is going to require an active, rebellious citizenry, unwilling to suffer any more of the indignities being heaped upon us.  We must rid ourselves of all the petty tyrants, big and small. We must leave none of them with any power to do this again.  We must punish them, and we must teach them a lesson: Our liberties are not disposable, nor are our lives, our livelihoods, our businesses, or even our leisure activities.  This is our country, and to preserve it, we must throw off all of these dictators-in-waiting.  If they made mask mandates, closed down businesses, ordered school closures, or took any other action that restricted the lives and movements of Americans, they must be removed. All of them.

Early on Tuesday, I had been watching the most recent video on YouTube by the creator Amazing Polly, entitled It’s Your Funeral.  She’s Canadian, but she has a strong affinity for America, and I think she recognizes that if Americans won’t fight, her country will easily be subsumed into whatever global catastrophes to which America falls.  In particular, in this video, one of the things she addresses that caught my attention was her discussion of the psychology of isolation, and of tyranny. You can view the section of the video I’m referencing below. The portion on which I’d like to focus runs from approximately the 9:02 to the 27:02 timestamps. You may wish to skip ahead to the 9:00 mark:

Polly’s point is an important one. In fact, I’d like to expand on it, because I’ve observed a phenomenon since the onset of the various lock-downs and mask-mandates that troubles me greatly.  She mentions the Milgrim Electric Shock experiment, and she gives a decent explanation of the basic premises that inquiry investigated.  Basic human psychology doesn’t really change much, because we’re wired the same as people who lived one-hundred or one-thousand years ago, despite the artifices all our modern technology provides.  What’s most interesting about the experiment is how rapidly people become desensitized to the infliction of pain on others, how accepting of isolation they become, and just how readily people, all people, can be persuaded by authorities to do the most egregious things to one another.

This is even more remarkably distinct among people who already live and work in a martial or quasi-martial environment, like military or police.  It’s quite plausible, based on my experiences and observations that people in those environments, already inculcated and indoctrinated to take orders and execute them more or less unquestioningly to pick up on this behavior even more readily than their civilian counterparts. Of course, it’s not just police and military, but also any hierarchical structure, like education or medicine, where this becomes a problem.  Accustomed to following orders handed-down from on high, people in those fields are potentially just as dangerous when under such demands.  Obedience and compliance become the keys to survival within such institutions, and it is this that, more than any other thing, should concern us when regarding all of these would-be dictators at the state and local levels.  People who can uncritically accept specious “science” which on one day tells you masks are pointless but on the next tells you they are indispensable in stopping the spread of a virus are just the sort of persons who should never be entrusted with or granted any power over their fellow man.

It’s been asked in innumerable forms how it was possible for the German people to permit the holocaust.  While I am not here directly comparing mask orders to the holocaust, what I seek to examine is the basic human psychology that permits either.  You see, we have had countless incidents of otherwise innocent and peaceable people being accosted by authorities in one form or another for refusing to wear masks, or maintain strict “social distance.” See below for one recent example:

I’m quite afraid of what might have happened had I been present for this. I don’t believe I’d have been able to sit by and watch this assault go on. I’m as big a supporter of law enforcement as any, but this behavior by this school resource officer was completely unjustified.  I don’t care what else is said about this incident, but the fact that an armed man was willing to use [less] lethal force(NOT non-lethal) against an unarmed woman for the “crime” of not wearing a mask when she’s clearly well beyond six feet from anybody not related to her is ridiculous.  Frankly, none of the powers of arrest or force should ever have come into play here.  The officer should be fired.  His credentials should be stripped. Every person in the chain of command between him and the Governor of Ohio should be removed from their offices, forcibly if need be, and they should all be charged for varying degrees of criminality. What was done in this case was a complete demolition of this woman’s civil liberties, and the institution directly responsible should be made to pay compensation.  If she is not able to obtain satisfaction by legal means, she would be morally justified in almost any action she would thereafter take in response.  She is entitled to her pound of flesh.

Will you suggest to me otherwise? Stop! Please leave my website. You don’t belong here. You don’t need to read anything I’ve heretofore written. You’re not fully human, and your willingness to submit to this idiocy is all the evidence I need of your inhumanity.  Law is important, critical in fact, but it is not everything and cannot substitute for morality, but for those of you who would happily go along with this woman’s abuse at the hands of the authorities, you are morally no different from the dirt-bags in Germany who went along with their atrocities. Yes, I agree that the degree is different, but the underlying psychology, the premise underlying and justifying this action is really no different.  You are every bit as dangerous to your fellow man as the SS officer who shot Jews on command and dumped them into a mass grave. I mean that. All of it.

If, on the other hand, you find, as do I, that this had been an unconscionable abuse of authority and power, I must ask: “What are you doing about it?” What are any of us doing about it?  You see, this is the real problem. I’m more than one-thousand miles remote from this taser incident, but I’m aware of it.  The people of South Central Ohio are aware of it. What are they doing about it?  Herein lies the problem: We all find excuses to remain uninvolved.  People, this is happening in America! This is happening in YOUR COUNTRY! This isn’t happening in some third-world S-hole, although given their preferences, the left will surely turn it into one.

My larger point here is that as Polly argues, we must not let our humanity be stolen from us, and we must be willing to make a stink. Beyond that, we must be willing to fight against this entire monstrosity. Our liberties don’t evaporate because there’s a virus, whether it’s extremely virulent, or spread only through intimate contact.  Our rights don’t get suspended because some tin-pot dictator-wannabe says so. The problem is that when all this finally ends, if we leave these people in place, they’ll be emboldened to do this to us again in the next emergency.  Some of them have grown to like this power they’ve managed to seize, and from our perspective, the problem is that in our willingness to comply for our safety and those of our loved-ones, we’ve too easily ceded too much ground, and too willingly watched as abuses of citizens goes on unabated.  I don’t understand how the school resource officer in the video above didn’t find himself surrounded by a bunch of citizens explaining to him that he’d better back off, or else.  I don’t understand it.  Where are the men, by the way?

Our society is collapsing in part because men have become neutered and indifferent; emasculated and impotent, morally much more than physically. I fear for our nation because now we live in a society in which tin-pot punks with official titles hand down orders and edicts, while ostensibly free men and women simply comply. What sort of people have we become?  What else will we accept when pressed?  Is there no limit to the indignities we will suffer on the say-so of some dimwit who mustered a majority of voters in some small county in an off-year election?  It’s time to reject all of this.  President Trump was right to say that we mustn’t let COVID19 dominate our lives.  He was right to lead from the front, rather than shout orders up from the Presidential bunker, like so many others. None of us get a second lifetime, and watching it bleed away in isolation offers no consolation. I’m done with the lock-down now. One way or the other, it’s over. Come what may. I will not be reduced to the sort of cringing loser who will surrender the right to console my aged mother, nor the sort of hapless mealy-mouth who helplessly watches a mother be assaulted by a power-hungry bureaucrat with a badge and a taser. It’s not happening. I hope my fellow Americans will join me in rejecting this “new normal” before it morphs into something more insidious. Those public officials who have handed down and enforced such orders must go, and the purge must begin today. What they’ve demonstrated is that they are too willing to abuse citizens on the basis of orders in pursuit of public policies that violate our constitutional rights, and that is a sin we cannot tolerate, and a treason against us we must not permit.

Isolating You From Information: Why the Bars Must Remain Closed

Friday, September 18th, 2020

What fraud and misfeasance looks like…

The scandal of the Nashville, Tennessee Mayor hiding the statistics on COVID19 infections related to bars is the same scenario playing-out around the country. They sold the bar closures and restaurant closures because, they claimed, you’re more likely to get infected in those places.  If I can go to Walmart and avoid infection, I can assure you that I can go to a bar and do the same.  If I can go to Home Depot while avoiding COVID19, I am certain I can avoid it in a restaurant.  Those of you who have had your suspicions about the real drivers of our national reaction to COVID19/WuFlu have been right to raise an eyebrow over the things we’re being told.  The real reason we’re not supposed to be in restaurants and bars is because apart from eating and drinking, there’s one central purpose of going to such places: Socializing. Restaurants and bars are the locations of informal conversations, where information is passed from one person to the next, outside the control of media or official channels.  If you’ve begun to suspect that this could be the purpose of these shutdowns, you’d be right.  If you’ve noticed that some so-called “red state” governors seem to be following this same general approach, you’d be right to question them.  You see, when all is said and done, COVID19 has been the instrument of your isolation and ignorance.  It’s also been the source of your greatest distraction throughout 2020.  Nothing has caused the average person to spend more useless time on more useless activities. Nothing has done more to isolate us in a social sense.  This is why even at this late date, and in the face of mounting evidence, the bars must remain closed.

It’s part of the strategy to keep you in the dark. You see, you might be sitting at the bar discussing the various privations caused, not by COVID19 itself, but all the foolish measures being used allegedly to combat it.  You might point out, for instance, that the CDC said these face-masks will do nothing to protect you from the smoke of the wildfires in California, Oregon, and Washington. Since the Coronavirus is as small or smaller than the particulate matter that constitutes smoke, it’s hard for reasonable people to ignore the fact that against Coronavirus, masks wouldn’t be any more effective.  Conversations like this are verboten, and will likely get you banned or at least suspended in social media.  In a bar, or a restaurant, such conversations aren’t going to be hushed.  Do you see?  They can control social media.  They do control the news media.  They are the official channels.  The Democrats and big media, along with the tech sector are in collusion.  The only way for them to succeed was to present you a narrative and make sure nothing contradicted it.  They’re closing off all avenues on-line and in media.  Without the bar and restaurant shutdown, along with all the other mass assemblies we are currently forbidden from attending, we have no way to communicate among ourselves.  With church services shut down in many places, you can’t even talk to your fellow congregants. This has all been about isolating you politically. Until Donald Trump decided to re-label his rallies “peaceful protests,” they had him shut down too.

This is all despicable, and now we’re learning that the Mayor of Nashville, John Cooper(D) is doubtless simply an exemplar of a larger class.  Along with his henchmen in government, he conspired to hide the fact from the populace that the COVID19 infection rates for bars was vanishingly small.

You can read the story at Breitbart in full, but there is more reporting on it elsewhere. The point here is to understand why.  Why would they hide that?  Why would they want to isolate you?

Folks, it’s never been about the virus.  It’s always been about the election.

 

 

The #ChinaWuhanCoronaVirus Panic Is Unnecessary and Contrived(Updated)

Monday, March 30th, 2020

China Originated Viral Infectious Disease #19(COVID-19 a.k.a. #WuFlu)

Ladies and gentlemen, I occasionally write from what must seem to be a purely contrarian point of view.  I realize that my approach to some topics makes me the natural target for those who demand conformity in all matters.  On so-called “Anthropogenic Climate Change,” I’ve long maintained that the evidence in-hand in no way supports the will conclusions and claims of so-called “Climate Activists,” and that instead, simple logic exposes the foolishness of their claims to an extent that their motive is not revealed to be the result of simple ignorance, but instead one of intentional disinformation for political purposes.  You can agree or disagree with my arguments on that topic, but in the past, as I’ve made my arguments, I’ve not heard any retorts to the logic.  In this case of the Wuhan Coronavirus known formally as COVID-19(COronaVIrus Disease2019[*],) but herein called #WuFlu for shorthand, I believe we are being intentionally mis-informed and driven into an entirely unnecessary, unwarranted panic while simultaneously surrendering liberties to governmental demands in answer to the non-existent emergency that has aroused this ridiculous panic.  That’s quite an allegation on my part, but as ever, I stand prepared to defend my assertion.

Don’t misunderstand: There IS a COVID-19.  What there ISN’T is any evidence that:

  • #WuFlu is actually killing anybody
  • #WuFlu is lethal in and of itself
  • #WuFlu is any more lethal than ordinary influenza

If you have irrefutable evidence of ANY of these, please provide it in the comments below. To date, no government authority or medical institution in the private sector has yet to provide any.  Let’s start by playing a logic game.  Let’s imagine you’re a healthcare provider.  Let’s further stipulate that a patient coming to you for care presents with the following list of symptoms:

  • Persistent Fever
  • Cough
  • Body Aches

That sounds just like #WuFlu!  So the healthcare provider uses a test to determine that yes, indeed, you have #COVID-19, and from that moment on, if you die, it’s going to be assumed that COVID-19 killed you.  But did it?  Did they test you for other infectious agents?  No! They’re not going to test you to see if you also have influenza, or some other disease.  Once you’re tagged with “COVID-19,” you will be counted as having expired due to COVID-19 even if it was actually your lung cancer that killed you.

In the 2017-18 influenza season, the CDC reports an estimated 61,000 people died from influenza.  First, note that this is an “estimate,” and second, that the death rate was roughly 1 in 1000.  Roughly one person of every one-thousand who was infected with influenza purportedly died of it.  I remember this particular influenza season quite well, because my father very nearly succumbed to pneumonia thought to be secondary to the respiratory influenza that ultimately killed so many people in that season. I knew a number of elderly people, primarily men in their late 70s or 80s, who either died or nearly died in that season. Most of them had other health issues(my father a diabetic, for instance,) and others with various forms of COPD or smoking, or heart issues.  This should sound quite familiar to you, because it’s the same exact class of people allegedly dying by COVID-19.

In fact, every flu season, it is almost always this same class of people who die in large numbers from this crud.  I know it. You know it.  The numbers bear it out each year.

That said, let me ask you a question I’d like you to consider: If you’re tested positive for #WuFlu, what information do you have that excludes the possibility that if you’re exhibiting some or all of the symptoms above, that it’s the result of COVID-19 and not something else?  This is one of those basic syllogisms with which you’re going to need to wrestle.

Of course, I’m not a physician, or a medical professional of any sort, and my studies in my profession have nothing to do with epidemiology, or any related field. What my field does heavily rely upon is logic.  In all respects.

Here is a German doctor explaining the matter.  If you’re not a German-speaker, you’ll need to rely upon the subtitles, but after consulting with my wife(a German by birth,) the subtitles are faithful to the good doctor’s intent:

Mark Twain(Samuel Clemens) is purported to have said:

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

Whether he wrote these precise words may be in doubt, but he certainly wrote:

How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and hard it is to undo that work again!

It seems to me they mean the same, so let’s credit him with the sentiment if not the precise words. As Dr. Wodarg alleges, this Emperor seems to be naked.

Still doubting? That’s understandable, since I’m just a guy on the Internet with a keyboard and an opinion, and virtually everybody has at least one of those.  Some of you will be familiar with Candace Owens, and I commend to you her work.  She’s trying very hard to demolish the stranglehold she alleges that the #DemocratMediaComplex has on the black community. She posted this on Twitter(@RealCandaceO):

It’s from the CDC. What it represents is the sharp drop-off in Influenza Positive tests since the emergence of COVID19. In other words, what’s really happening is that if you test positive for COVID19, they’re not testing for anything else in most cases.  They’re blaming everything on COVID19! Influenza has become an invisible killer for which we’re not testing.  More, when people self-quarantine because they have the symptoms above, it’s being assumed in many cases that they have/had COVID19.  There’s no verification in many cases.

Are you starting to see a trend? This should be getting your eyebrows raised, at least a bit. If not, you may be succumbing to the impetus of the herd.

I’m not going to tell you that there’s no danger from #WuFlu.  You must make your own judgments, but make sure they’re your own judgments, and that you’re not being driven to them.  What I notice is that Americans are increasingly frustrated and even more often, furious, as it becomes clear that we’re laying waste to the best economy on Earth in order to pursue an alleged public health crisis that may be even more false and more hyped than so-called “Anthropogenic Climate Change.”

While I’m on that topic, I’d like to bring a related matter to your consideration, also on the matter of COVID19, but also the possibility that local/regional environmental concerns might be contributing to the death toll being seen in various hot-spots around the globe.  Tony Heller is a first-rate guy, and his website realclimatescience.com is first-rate. I’ve been reading his site for a long time, and I follow him on Twitter (@Tony_Heller). This video, also featuring a German doctor, is definitely worth the watch, albeit for somewhat different but related reasons:

Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to look out for your health, and I want you to look out especially for the health of those who are what might be termed “medically fragile,” inasmuch as they may be elderly, or have significant pre-existing conditions that would make them a target for any communicable respiratory pathogen.   Wash your hands, mind your social distance, and begin to demand of the media and your political leaders: Where is the evidence?

We’re killing our economy, which will in turn surely kill MANY MORE PEOPLE than this disease will have done, and we have no evidence that COVID19 has actually killed ANYBODY. None. Nada.

Think about that.

We can go into motives another day. For the moment, ignore the question of motives, and focus instead on the situation. I don’t know exactly why, as of now, but it seems fairly clear to me that we’re being played.  The panic is a scam.  We need to demand our leaders explain why. Now.

 

Editor’s note [*] When this article originally published, it was stated that COVID-19 stands for “ChinaOriginatedViralInfectiousDisease#19” That was false, and while it had come from what seemed a reputable site, that site has also changed their annotation, so I have corrected mine. The fact remains that the virus originated, with the best information at hand, in the Wuhan Province of China in 2019.
