Renewed C19 Panic-Propaganda Serves To Hamper
And Discourage Resistance To The Election Fraud
The hypnotic drumbeat is revved back up in the hope that it
still has its evil magic.
I HAVE BEEN RELUCTANT to ascribe motives to the C19
panic-mongering this year, although several seem clear enough. For
instance, some folks (Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci, for example) stand
to make a lot of money selling vaccines to governments (and perhaps
directly to individuals).
But while following the money is easy, it's harder to pin
down political motivations for flogging this faux hobgoblin.
It has been tempting to assume the following:
THE INITIAL POLITICAL BUY-IN to the "crisis" narrative was organic:
the media having treated C19 as apocalyptic, the political impulse was
to join the chorus (to forestall the danger of being blamed if things
really did go south). Because Donald Trump chose a low-key posture as
his response, opposition Democrats-- primarily Democrat state governors
and their fellow-travelers-- felt compelled to go hard the other
"Going hard" involved chiming in on the apocalyptic
screeching, and then the issuing of allegedly-necessary "emergency"
edicts shutting down large portions of the country in order to "flatten
the curve" and prevent a supposed risk of swamping healthcare
Once the first "lockdowns" had been imposed and the affected populations had proven
compliant, the situation was recognized as ripe for exploitation. At
that point (goes the speculation), deliberate steps were taken to damage
the American economy on which Donald Trump would be relying in his
re-election effort by extending the "lockdowns".
An early indicator of this political calculation going into
action as a driver behind the (illegal)
executive "lockdowns", masking and "social distancing" edicts
was the reaction of these oppositional actors to the hydroxychloroquine
cure for C19 (HCQ). This thoroughly proven treatment was, and has
continued to be, actually prohibited from use in many of the areas under
the sway of Trump's opponents, simply because he touted its virtues once
he became aware of its successful use in French trials. (See more on
here, and see a recent
summary of the data on HCQ
BEFORE LONG, the political actors responsible for the
"lockdowns" had created a serious problem for themselves. You
see, only 97
Americans had died of C19 during the first four months after the disease
began spreading in the USA-- and in which some 38 - 54 million Americans
had caught C19 and had it harmlessly runs its course (while also leaving
PCR-detectable residue in those many millions,
able to be misrepresented
as a "case").
But the pathologies
generated by the exaggerated panic-mongering, gubernatorial policies of
seeding nursing homes with residents infected with respiratory diseases,
and the suppression of HCQ succeeded in generating a rate of alleged
C19-related deaths of around 97 every 90 minutes during the following
two-and-a-half months. (See
that story and documentation here.)
At that point (early May), these state executive officials
had a lot of blood on their hands. It appears to have become obvious to
them that letting the apocalypse threat fade away would end badly, from
their point of view. So, the drums began to beat out the "Second Wave"
tune in order to keep the protective panic alive-- even while at the same time a lot of "mitigation
mandates" were eased up in the face of increasingly restive
a precipitous and persistent drop in the declared death rates
(It will be noted that in this latest CDC report
linked above, the total fatality figure for last winter has gone up by
11, from 97 in earlier compilations to 108 now. This was accomplished by the retroactive ascription of C19
as being involved in those
additional deaths last winter... Assign the adjustment as much validity as you wish.)
As in the initial "lockdown" theatrical, the alleged
mitigation measures imposed under the pretext of the "Second Wave" have
been random, contradictory, nonsensical and revised at unexpected
intervals, and all with complete opacity as to the purported "science"
and "data" behind any of them. These characteristics have the effect of
keeping their targets confused and distracted by having to focus on
constant adjustments to new conditions and by being induced to spend
attention on related discourse and grumbling, rather than having the
time and equilibrium to pause and say, "Wait a minute...!"
Moreover, the alleged mitigation measures relied upon
enforcement by co-opted private business owners, for the most part. This
made difficult the targeting of whatever ire and opposition DID find a
foothold in the afflicted population at large, with the front-line
offenders being ever-varying, diffuse, and often seemingly as much a
victim as the aggrieved, if not entirely faceless: "It's corporate
policy... there's nothing I can do, sir..."
All these aspects of the "lockdown" edicts (and those
concerning masking, and "social distancing", etc.) contribute
significantly to the difficulty of the victimized public in simply
organizing its thinking on the whole situation as individuals, much less
organizing en masse in opposition.
AT AROUND THE SAME TIME that the "Second Wave" narrative
was rolling out, a number of Democratic administrations-- most notably in
electorally-significant (battleground) states-- began taking steps to use
the C19 panic as a pretext for (often
unilateral-- and hence, illegal) introductions of universal
"mail-in" voting. This was done by way of ballots sent to all
voters on a state or districts registration rolls, many of which are
The obvious (and predicted, and borne-out) consequence of
thus putting into potential play many ballots ostensibly addressed to
ineligible (often dead) voters, which are easily completed and submitted
fraudulently (perhaps by holding back from the mail a portion of those
ballots, which can then be completed by the schemers as needed and added
to those being tabulated), would seem to have been the purpose of this
it was an outcome of the exercise...
(This thuggish and grossly-improper behavior should
surprise no one. After all, the Democratic Party leadership has been
working hard to convince its base that every member has been
systematically screwed by "The Man" for his or her entire life, and that
"The Man" is represented by the Republicans. It's only natural that
some, if not all, of those "victims" are perfectly willing to cheat
their way to power, in what they imagine is just the fair play of
Let's not forget that this "street fight justice"
perspective was widely expressed in the most overt terms not long ago,
until it was recognized as inconveniently straightforward.
Remember "By Any Means Necessary"?)
And that brings us to today, and a sudden new "lockdown"
wave, coinciding with no meaningful C19-related event. So-called "case"
numbers have been high for months (and are simply due to more tests
being done which detect the inert residue of millions of infections
long-since come and gone and indicating nothing more than an ever-larger
portion of the population being immune to the disease); fatalities
Instead, the new "lockdown" wave coincides only with the
ongoing exposure of massive vote fraud by Democratic Political machines
in certain cities and states on behalf of the Biden campaign (and a few
NOW, AS I SAID AT THE BEGINNING, I'm reluctant to ascribe
political motives to the C19 affair. But if I were to do so, I would not
hesitate at this juncture to posit that the current "lockdown" wave is
explicitly meant to hinder, disrupt, discourage and derail the
challenges currently being mustered by Trump supporters (and also by
Americans like me
who can't stand Trump but revere the rule of law).
Don't let this happen, people!!
Denounce every illegal "lockdown" order and refuse to play
along. Explain to every business owner that when they play along with
those orders they facilitate and participate in their illegality and the
erosion of the rule of law that comes with them.
Make clear to every panic-drum-beating, "Don't forget your
mask!"-smirking media shill you can reach that they are doing wrong, and
it is not going unnoticed.
In short, defend yourselves. Your future, and that of your
kids, is on the line.
"God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are
always ready to guard and defend it."
P.S. I HOPE EVERYONE IS TAKING NOTE
of the widespread tendency of MSM outlets to report on whatever are the
latest edicts vomited forth by various governors or their surrogates in
state "public health" departments which presume to dictate the behavior
of the people, while never mentioning that all such edicts are illegal
and without any actual authority at all. Such omissions tag those
responsible as "fake news" peddlers, rather than actual journalists.
The pretense behind these omissions is that because the
courts which have ruled such edicts illegal specifically addressed those
issued in the name of a particular offender (such as a governor), those
issued by other executive-branch officials are yet to be condemned. This
is not true.
What these Supreme Courts have said in their
rulings is that ALL executive-branch officials (and anyone else not
constituting the duly-elected legislature) are incapable of legally
having, being given, or exercising the purported authority to issue such
edicts, regardless of the purported reasons for them. See the
background information here.
The issuance of every such edict
is illegal, and an expression of contempt for the rule of law.
Those involved should be denounced and duly prosecuted.

should be believed."

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases

real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

Lockdown Despotism And The "Control Panel"
Why the Biden-Harris COVID-19 plan is so ominous.
by Dan Sanchez
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris recently updated their “plan
to beat COVID-19.” One passage is worth examining for the dangerous
mentality it betrays:
“Social distancing is not a light switch. It is
a dial. President-elect Biden will direct the CDC [Centers for Disease
Control] to provide specific evidence-based guidance for how to turn the
dial up or down relative to the level of risk and degree of viral spread
in a community, including when to open or close certain businesses,
bars, restaurants, and other spaces; when to open or close schools, and
what steps they need to take to make classrooms and facilities safe;
appropriate restrictions on size of gatherings; when to issue
The passage brings to mind a warning given to
America long ago.
The warning was delivered in 1835 by Alexis de
Tocqueville, the famous French observer and admirer of the young
republic. In his classic book Democracy in America, de Tocqueville
included a chapter called, “What Sort Of Despotism Democratic Nations
Have To Fear,” in which he warned the American people of:
“...an immense and tutelary power, which takes
upon itself alone to secure their gratifications, and to watch over
their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and
mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that
authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on
the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood...”
Does the Biden/Harris “plan to beat COVID-19”
represent the kind of despotic power that de Tocqueville warned us
about? Let’s see.
Is the power “absolute”? Well not yet, at
least, since it refers to CDC “guidance” as opposed to federal mandates.
But governors and mayors have proven to be quite deferential to the CDC,
so its “guidance” has translated into state and local-level mandates
before and likely will again.
Is the power “immense”? Clearly. It covers the
opening and closing, not only of restaurants and bars, but of all
businesses. Thus, it claims sway over the country’s entire in-person
economy and commercial life, regardless of private property and
The plan covers, not only businesses, but all
spaces: that is, everything about the coming and going of Americans,
again irrespective of individual rights.
The plan also encompasses all gatherings
wherever they may occur, thus violating “the right of the people
peaceably to assemble,” as enshrined in the First Amendment.
The plan entails “stay-at-home restrictions,”
meaning the power to imprison at will Americans in their own homes,
violating the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, according to which
neither the federal government nor any state is allowed to “deprive any
person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
So, yes, the plan is very immense, both in its
scope and impact.
SANCHEZ QUOTES RELEVANT AND USEFUL words from Toqueville, Mises and
Hayek. I'm going to add some to the same effect from C.S. Lewis, another
intellectual giant and deep lover of liberty:
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the
good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live
under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber
barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us
without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
Here's another observation going to the point by Daniel
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for any
assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people
against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who
mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good
masters, but they mean to be masters."
And here are the three most concise statements of the issue
"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human
freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves."
"The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front
for the urge to rule."
"A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves."
-Edward R. Murrow
I hope the message from all of this is clear: The
continuing exploitation of fear by opportunistic politicians and others
must be recognized as intolerable, because it is so dangerous. The
failure of the American people-- each one as an individual with
individual moral agency-- to rise up against the tyrannies being
promoted under the pretext and pretense of C19 as some dire threat
justifying the abandonment of all our principles is an act of mass
Am I being clear enough?
Like Gulliver, while we sleep (or lie paralyzed with
indecision) tiny enemies of our liberty are sewing us to the ground more
and more inescapably, while murmuring soothing lies about doing it all
for our own good. Soon we will be entirely within their power and able
only to weep and curse our foregone opportunities at self defense.
Does this sound hyperbolic? Think back over what has
happened in America-- and indeed, much of the world-- since last March.
Had I spun to you the tale of those past 8 months back in January, you
would have scoffed and accused me of being hyperbolic-- even wild-eyed.
I WON'T GO SO FAR AS TO ADVOCATE any particular manner of
"rising up" (other than the most rudimentary and fundamental acts of
refusing to abide by any and all illegal "mandates", and denouncing as
visibly and persistently as possible those who issue them, promote them,
and enforce them-- those latter two being so-called journalists and
co-opted private businesspeople). But I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
That defense was put in place by the Founders in
anticipation of just the sort of corruption that reigns today.
