A Thoughtful And Persuasive Rejection Of mRNA "Vaccines"

As resistance to the "vaccine" scam widens and deepens, a very articulate voice is added to the conversation from a place where this sort of narrow-eyed consideration might not have been expected, and which is all the more welcome and significant for that reason.

 

"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men."

-Edmund Burke

CATHOLIC ARCHBISHOP CARLO MARIA VIGANÒ has recently shared a letter he sent October 23, 2021 to Cardinal Luis F. Ladaria S.J., Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop José Gomez, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, as well as to all the bishops of the United States of America. Viganò presents a carefully reasoned, heavily supported argument against the mRNA "vaccines" being pushed on the American people and others around the world with a manic and relentless ferocity-- despite the long-standing and ever-growing evidence of their worthlessness as remedies against C19 and of their significant adverse effects.

I've reproduced the letter, with its voluminous supporting footnotes, below, and will follow it with some comments. Please read Viganò's presentation in its entirety, and don't be put off by it beginning with some discussion of a position taken by the Catholic church in a December 21, 2020 'Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines (sic)' (which is an addition to the Vatican's document collection known as the 'Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith' and which focuses on the question of taking vaccines or "vaccines" developed with the use of tissues from non-spontaneously-aborted babies).

Viganò's references to the earlier 'Note' is to distinguish his letter, the primary focus of which is on the practical realities of the "vaccines" and the moral considerations arising from those practical aspects themselves-- considerations which apply with equal force regardless of one's views of the use of aborted fetal tissue in the development and manufacture of the "vaccines".

Here is the letter:

Your Eminences,

Your Excellencies,

I address you, Archbishop Gómez, as President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and to you, Cardinals Ladaria and Müller, for your competence, some serious considerations related to the so-called vaccines against Covid-19.

I believe there are some aspects of the question that now allow for a more complete evaluation of what these drugs are and what effects they cause; this evaluation ought to lead to a collegial stance, in conformity with the Magisterium of the Church and not influenced by biased information or by erroneous news spread by the producers of these drugs or by the media.

1. Subject of the Note of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith

The Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines was issued last year in the absence of complete data on both the nature of the gene serum and its components. I point out to you that the subject of the Note is limited to “the moral aspects of the use of the vaccines against Covid-19 that have been developed from cell lines derived from tissues obtained from two fetuses that were not spontaneously aborted,[1] and it states that “[w]e do not intend to judge the safety and efficacy of these vaccines, although ethically relevant and necessary, as this evaluation is the responsibility of biomedical researchers and drug agencies.[2] Safety and effectiveness are thus not the subject of the Note, which in expressing its opinion about the “morality of use” therefore does not even express its opinion about the “morality of production” of these drugs.

2. Safety and effectiveness of the vaccines

The safety and effectiveness of individual vaccines is determined after a period of experimentation that normally lasts for several years. In this case, the health authorities have decided to carry out experimentation on the entire world population, as an exception to the usual practice of the scientific community, international standards, and the laws of individual nations. This means that the entire population finds itself in the condition of being susceptible to suffering the adverse effects of the vaccine, at their own risk, when normally experimentation is done on a voluntary basis and carried out on a limited number of subjects, who are paid to undergo it.

I think it is clear that this is an experimental drug that has not been approved,[3] but only authorized for administration by the bodies in charge; just as I think it is evident that there are medical treatments without adverse side-effects, even though they have been systematically boycotted by the Health Institutions – WHO, CDC, EMA – and by mainstream media. Even if the Church should express a moral evaluation of the different treatments available – some of which are carried out with drugs produced with cell lines that originated in an aborted fetus, like the vaccines – it must be reiterated that there are effective treatments which cure patients and allow them to develop permanent natural immune defenses, something that the vaccines do not do. Furthermore, these treatments do not cause serious side effects, since the drugs that are used have been licensed for decades.

Other recently developed treatments are absolutely effective, inexpensive, and carry no danger for those who receive them: this is the case with the plasma treatment studied and employed with great success by the Italian doctor Giuseppe De Donno.[4]

Treatment with hyper-immune plasma was strongly discouraged and boycotted by pharmaceutical companies and doctors financed by them, because it does not cost anything and renders the analogous therapy useless, which is made in laboratories with monoclonal cells at exorbitant costs.

International standards specify that an experimental drug cannot be authorized for distribution except in the absence of an effective alternative treatment: this is why drug agencies in the USA and Europe have prevented the use of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, hyper-immune plasma, and other therapies with proven effectiveness. There is no need to remind you that all of these agencies, along with the WHO, are financed almost entirely by the pharmaceutical companies and by foundations tied to them, and that there is a very grave conflict of interest at the highest levels,[5] about which the media are culpably silent.[6] In expressing a moral evaluation of the vaccines, the Church cannot fail to take these elements into consideration, since they cause a manipulation of scientific information, on the basis of which the judgments about their moral liceity by ecclesiastical Authority have been formulated.

3. The experimental drugs are not vaccines in the proper sense

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, while not expressing its opinion on the effectiveness and safety of the so-called vaccines, nevertheless defines them as “vaccines,” taking for granted that they actually give immunity and protect people from active and passive contagion. This element is disavowed by the declarations coming from all of the world’s health authorities and from the WHO, according to which vaccinated people can become infected and infect others more seriously than those who are not vaccinated[7] and find that their immune defenses are drastically reduced if not even completely destroyed.

A recent study confirms that the gene serum can cause forms of acquired immuno-deficiency in those who receive it.[8] Therefore, the drugs that are called “vaccines” do not fall within the official definition of a vaccine to which the CDF’s Note presumably refers. In fact a “vaccine” is defined as a medicinal preparation aimed at inducing the production of protective antibodies by the organism, conferring specific resistance against a specific infectious disease (viral, bacterial, protozoal). This definition was recently changed by the WHO, because otherwise it would not have been able to include anti-Covid drugs, which do not induce the production of protective antibodies and do not confer a specific resistance against the SarsCoV-2 infectious disease.

Furthermore, while mRNA serums are dangerous because of the implications they have at the genetic level, the AstraZeneca serum may be even more harmful, as recent studies show.[9]

4. Proportionality between the costs and benefits of the vaccines

Limiting itself to an evaluation only of the morality of the use of the vaccines, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith does not take into account the proportionality between the presumed benefits of the gene serum and the short-term and long-term adverse side effects.

Worldwide, the number of deaths and grave pathologies following vaccination is increasing exponentially:[10] in only nine months these vaccines have caused more deaths than all vaccines in the last thirty years.[11] Not only this: in many nations – such as Israel for example[12] – the number of deaths after vaccination is now greater than the number of deaths from Covid.[13]

Having established that the drugs sold as vaccines do not give any significant benefit and on the contrary may cause a very high percentage of deaths or grave pathologies[14] even in subjects for whom Covid does not represent a threat,[15] I do not think that we can conclude that there is any proportionality between the potential damages and the potential benefits.

This means therefore that there is a grave moral obligation to refuse inoculation as a possible and proximate cause of permanent damages[16] or death. In the absence of benefits, there is therefore no need to expose oneself to the risks of its administration, but on the contrary there is a duty to refuse it categorically.

5. New data on the presence of aborted fetal cell lines

Revelations from Pfizer executives have recently been released showing that the mRNA gene serums contain aborted fetal material not only for the production of the original vaccine, but also for its replication and production on a vast scale,[17] and nothing suggests that other pharmaceutical companies are an exception. Bishop Joseph Strickland[18] has also expressed himself in this regard, inviting the faithful to “say no. I’m not going to do it just because you mandate it, in that, who knows what next crazy thing will come up.” This makes the use of these drugs absolutely immoral, just as it is immoral and unacceptable to use drugs that use orphaned children for experimentation.[19]

6. Side Effects on pregnant mothers and nursing children

Another aspect to consider is the concrete danger of grave side effects on pregnant mothers and even more serious ones on newborn children: in the United States there have been 675 miscarriages in vaccinated mothers and in the United Kingdom 521 nursing infants have died.[20] We should remember that for the so-called vaccines against Covid active vigilance was not put into effect, but only passive vigilance, which requires patients to report adverse cases themselves; this means that the data on adverse effects should be multiplied at least ten times.

7. Components of the vaccines

I would like to point out to you that the components of the gene serums are still concealed as trade secrets, even if there are already multiple studies that have analyzed the content of the vaccines;[21] it is therefore not yet possible to completely evaluate the other critical elements and their long-term impacts, because the experimentation on the world population will end only in 2023/2025, and it is not known what the effects of the newly adopted technology are at the genetic level.[22] The presence of graphene in the doses that have been administered, reported by numerous laboratories that have analyzed its content,[23] suggests that the forced use of so-called vaccines – together with the systematic boycott of existing treatments of proven effectiveness[24] – serves the purpose of contact-tracing all vaccinated human beings throughout the world, who will be or already are connected to the Internet of Things[25] by means of a quantum link of pulsed microwave frequencies of 2.4 GHz or higher from cell towers and satellites.[26] As proof that this information is not the fruit of the fantasies of some conspiracy theorist, you should know that the European Union has chosen two projects dedicated to technological innovation as the winners of a competition: “The Human Brain” and “Graphene.” These two projects will receive one billion euro each in funding over the next ten years.[27]

I trust that Your Excellency, Archbishop Gomez, will take into serious consideration these observations of mine – which I have taken care to thoroughly verify with highly qualified Catholic doctors[28] – together with your brothers of the US Bishops’ Conference gathered in plenary Assembly from November 15 to 18, 2021 in Baltimore, so that the official position of the Catholic Church in the United States on the so-called vaccines will be revised and updated. Likewise, I ask Your Eminence, Cardinal Ladaria, to proceed as soon as possible to the revision of the Note of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the morality of certain anti-Covid-19 vaccines.

I realize that it may be extremely unpopular to take a position against the so-called vaccines, but as Shepherds of the flock of the Lord we have the duty to denounce the horrible crime that is being carried out, whose goal is to create billions of chronically ill people and to exterminate millions and millions of people, based on the infernal ideology of the “Great Reset” formulated by the President of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and endorsed by institutions and organizations around the world.[29]

The silence of so many cardinals and bishops, along with the inconceivable promotion of the vaccination campaign by the Holy See, represents a form of unprecedented complicity that cannot continue any longer. It is necessary to denounce this scandal, this crime against humanity, this satanic action against God.

With every passing day, thousands of people are dying or are being affected in their health by the illusion that the so-called vaccines guarantee a solution to the pandemic emergency. The Catholic Church has the duty before God and all of humanity to denounce this tremendous and horrible crime with the utmost firmness, giving clear directions and taking a stand against those who, in the name of a pseudo-science subservient to the interests of the pharmaceutical companies and the globalist elite, have only intentions of death. How Joe Biden, who also defines himself as “Catholic,” could impose vaccination on 28 million children aged 5 to 11,[30] is absolutely inconceivable, if only for the fact that there is practically zero risk of them developing the SARS-CoV-2 disease. The Holy See and the Bishops’ Conferences have the duty to express a firm condemnation in this regard, and also in relation to the very serious side effects that can result for children who are inoculated with the experimental gene serum.[31]

It is equally imperative that there be an intervention by the US Bishops’ Conference aimed at promoting the religious exemption and immediately revoking the bans imposed in this regard by many Ordinaries on their priests. Similarly, all vaccination requirements for seminarians and candidates of religious communities must be revoked. Instead, clear directives should be given about the dangers connected to the administration of the vaccine and its grave moral implications.

I am certain that you will want to consider the particular gravity of this subject, the urgency of an intervention that is enlightened by and faithful to the teaching of the Gospel, as well as the salus animarum that the Pastors of the Church must promote and defend.

In Christo Rege,

+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop

BEFORE MY COMMENTS ON THIS POWERFUL EXPOSITION by Archbishop Viganò, let me give a brief biographical note. Viganò has an admirable record as a courageous truth-teller. As related in Wikipedia: "He is best known for having exposed two major Vatican scandals. These were the Vatican leaks scandal of 2012, in which he revealed financial corruption in the Vatican, and a 2018 letter in which he accused Pope Francis and other church leaders of covering up sexual abuse allegations against former cardinal Theodore McCarrick."

I think Archbishop Viganò is now earning himself some further respect with this fearless call-out of the very high-powered "vaccine" juggernaut. He is also revealing himself as having the wattage and integrity necessary to independently research his subjects and come to his own well-founded conclusions, rather than lazily or cravenly getting his views from co-opted mainstream media sources and self-serving government propaganda.

NOW TO A FEW COMMENTS related to Viganò's letter. To begin with, I want to encourage everyone to take special note of the observations about damage to recipients' immune systems in section 3 (addressed by Viganò in regard to "acquired immuno-deficiency" but also arising in the form of "antibody dependent enhancement" (ADE)) Evidence of these deadly effects is growing rapidly (see here and here, for example).

The onset of these problems was predictable from the beginning, and WAS predicted (see here, for instance). Indeed, the mRNA "vaccines" appear to be deliberately designed to cause just this deadly effect, being likely to winnow the population over the next few years from among those foolish enough to have gotten injected with the stuff.

After all, those responsible COULD have produced actual vaccines, that is, injections of dead or weakened virus, like all successful and actually effective vaccines over the last several hundred years (or better, let infection and the development of healthy, robust and durable naturally-acquired immunity shut down what is, after all, a relatively mild disease). But they did not.

Instead, they concocted the absurd pretense of an "improved vaccine version"-- a genetic modifier that actually causes the recipients body to produce one of the worst toxins of the virus (the spike protein, which attacks the body in various ways), while preventing the immune system from developing broad-spectrum weapons against all characteristics of the virus. This approach encourages the rise of variants while diminishing the body's ability to fight them (and perhaps to fight even unrelated pathogens).

At the same time, remember, everyone was subjected to the long-running insistence on masking and "social distancing". Both of these insane practices are calculated to weaken immune systems (see more on that here).

It is hard to imagine why these things should have been demanded unless increasing the vulnerability of the targeted populations to disease was the goal. I realize that saying this sounds wild-eyed and paranoid, but it is just a matter of dispassionate assessment of the facts. Take another look at Edmund Burke's words with which this article begins and reflect upon them.

In any event, those who have been "vaccinated" should immediately commence a rigorous program of fitness-enhancement and widespread, unimpeded contact with others in an effort to recover their immune system health. They should treat anyone trying to cajole, cozen or coerce them into letting another needle be put into their arms (or let one be put into those of their children) as the monsters they are.

I'LL MAKE JUST ONE FURTHER COMMENT at this time: Right now we are in a period in which the C19 scam is crumbling, thanks in large part to the "vaccine" mandates (a step by the perps which is proving to have been too far and too fast). The raising of voices like Archbishop Viganò's against the madness illustrates the momentum behind that collapse.

It is hugely important that, as the power of the "pandemic" narrative wanes in response to the "vaccine"-mandate overreach, the same moment is used to lay bare and bring into focus for everyone, even those thus far immersed in the Kool-Aid, the falseness of the entire C19 story (summarized here, for those needing a refresher). Likewise, the evil of those who have fanned and exploited the narrative and the hysteria it engendered and the extreme evil of those eventually discovered to have been its authors must also be exposed and condemned.

Let us keep clear in our minds that the real disease with which humanity has been threatened over the last 20 months is a disease of credulity, intellectual apathy, censorship, and rank and rampant corruption in media, science and government.

The biggest take-away from the assault upon the world's population, liberty and the rule of law should be measured contempt for institutional power of any kind-- and the scrubbing from the books everywhere of "public health" authority, among other "emergency" powers. None are legitimate and consistent with Constitutional systems (as is explained in detail here).

It is no exaggeration to say that millions have died unnecessarily as a result of what has been done in the name of the "dire pandemic" by venal, usurping and sanctimonious malefactors. Many of those millions-- most, perhaps-- died alone and in (or of) despair. What has been done here is horrible and horrifying.

Trials and harsh punishment of those responsible would not be out of order, and should perhaps be viewed as required by humanity as deterrents to the next batch of technocratically-minded, narcissistic sociopaths who decide it is their right to re-engineer the world to suit their ambitions, fancies, fantasies or delusions.

"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error."

-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson

Comments In Brief

Short takes on selected items lately in the news, such as "reparations" for illegal immigrants, gender assignment, quirks in last week's election reporting, and more.

THE BIDEN REGIME'S systematic attack on America has taken another bizarre turn with the proposition of "reparation" payments to illegal immigrants who were separated from the children they irresponsibly brought with them when crossing the national border. The storyline is that such separations were somehow unprecedented and tortious.

But neither of these propositions is true. People being incarcerated pursuant to criminal charges NEVER have their children put in the jail cell with them. The idea is insane, and to have incarcerated the innocent children in the detention facilities with their charged parents is what would have been legitimately tortious.

Likewise, the story that the Justice Department (sic) is floating-- that the (originally $450,000 per adult illegal involved, now morphing into a different, as-yet-unstated alternative figure) "reparation" payment is a "settlement". This bs is a contrived rationale meant to suggest that Biden & crew are protecting the rest of us from a higher obligation if these ridiculous claims went to trial.

In fact, call me a cynic, but I suspect that the very idea of "claims" on the matter was dreamed up by someone in the Biden camp itself, and then proposed to the supposed "victims"...

THE ELECTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY LAST WEEK ended in welcome rollbacks of some of the "progressive/woke" madness taking hold of America over the last few years, and are to be celebrated accordingly. One less savory aspect of the voting struck me while watching coverage last Tuesday evening, though-- the failure of officials in Fairfax County, Virginia, in certifying absentee ballot results by the 8pm deadline to which they are subject.

Immediately upon seeing this announced (and seeing the MSM reporters treating it as inexplicable, and just "one of those things-- a SNAFU, as it were" not worthy of further comment) I concluded that the county political machine-- a classic Democrat-controlled apparatus-- was deliberately holding back on reporting numbers. This is done in order to discover what vote totals would need to be reported to give the Democrat gubernatorial candidate the victory as results from elsewhere in the state were added up.

The process is the same one we saw in November of last year when outcomes in a half-dozen other Democrat stronghold counties (like Wayne County, Michigan, Maricopa County, Arizona and Fulton County, Georgia, to name a few examples) were held back until well after every other jurisdiction had somehow managed to total and report their votes. (See some further discussion here.)

Happily, in this case, the votes for Glenn Youngkin and his companions in the race were apparently just too many to overcome by subterfuge. Or, of course, I could be wrong in my suspicions.

But either way, I am left to wonder why this obvious possible explanation for the Fairfax County delay was never raised or discussed by anyone reporting on the election Tuesday evening.

IT IS A WIDELY-ARGUED PROPOSITION among C19 scam skeptics that there is, in fact, no C19 virus at all. This is based on various statements by the CDC and others of a failure to "isolate" that virus, and is given support by the credulous in considering the reason for the production of mRNA "vaccines" rather than actual vaccines created with dead or weakened virus (something you can't do if there actually is no virus).

I can't answer the question about the existence of the virus based on direct knowledge as to the reason for the declared failure to isolate (though I can answer the "why mRNA contrivances" thing by suggesting it is done because actual protection from the virus is not the goal of the "vaccinators"...). But I CAN inject what I think is a relevant fact into the conversation (pardon the pun).

I am 66 years old, and I have had an awful lot of the viruses out there during those many years-- including many respiratory viruses. Not one of those many viruses ever destroyed my sense of smell, or did anything remotely like that. But within three days of the initial appearances of symptoms of what was eventually determined (by subsequent specific antibody tests) to be C19 last August, my sense of smell was obliterated, only very slowly and fitfully returning over the months since. (See more about all this here and here.)

I place myself firmly in the camp of believers that a novel virus has indeed been circulating over the last two years. Of course, I also maintain (with immense evidentiary support) that it is a largely harmless virus which has been given the appearance of dire character by crass exploiters.

***

FINALLY, JUST A GRIPE... I'm very weary of the appearance of the phrase "assigned at birth" in regard to gender, one which is as commonly used by skeptics/opponents of the "transgender" insanity as by its victims.

Just as it is intended to do by those responsible for contriving it, the "assigned at birth" phrase suggests that some bureaucrat more-or-less randomly picks whether a newborn will be deemed a boy or a girl (begging the question of why "re-assignment" should not subsequently be at the discretion of that person or his/her parents).

Word to all: Gender is established at conception. Full stop.

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.

Read this little two-page document. Click on the links at the end.

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 like that.

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error."

Regarding Trolleries

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from learning the truth about the "income tax")

 

 

FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This effort involves official government websites and press releases touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds with some CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the real substance of the ruling)-- and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

Are the presentations and resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?

Tim Kendrick has posted a video on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about it to begin with; I don't do what I do intending for anyone to feel obligated in any way.

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue to make my work freely-available here, and in my books for only the cost of a cheap paperback.

Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support. No one is to feel any pressure from it; if it moves anyone to act let it be solely because it seems right.

How To Be A Leader In The CtC Community

It's simple:

KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX IN DETAIL

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE RESOURCES

BE FAMILIAR WITH THE SCAMS, THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS, AND THE TROLL-POLLUTION

TAKE CHARGE IN YOUR STATE FORUM, HELPING EVERYONE TO THINK CLEARLY AND STAY ON TOPIC

All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.

Leadership is a challenge. But it's not complicated, and you can do it.

Are You Having Trouble Spreading The Word?

SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to believe about something as entrenched and significant as the 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 the same?

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...

"The Public Good" Isn't Mark Zuckerberg's-- or Congress's-- Priority

by Thomas L. Knapp

Facebook “whistleblower” Frances Haugen, the Washington Post reports, has “repeatedly accused [Facebook CEO Mark] Zuckerberg of choosing growth over the public good.” The Post‘s headline puts it a slightly different way: “Growth over safety.”

The meaning of “growth” in this context is pretty obvious: Zuckerberg’s company makes a lot of money, and he wants it to make even more.

The meaning of “safety” is somewhat more nebulous. Facebook spokeswoman Dani Lever refers to “difficult decisions between free expressions and harmful speech, security and other issues” before going to a place that should chill the blood of anyone listening:

“Drawing these societal lines is always better left to elected leaders which is why we’ve spent many years advocating for Congress to pass updated Internet regulations.”

The Post story opens with a more accurate account of what Lever proposes:

“Late last year, Mark Zuckerberg faced a choice: Comply with demands from Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party to censor anti-government dissidents or risk getting knocked offline in one of Facebook’s most lucrative Asian markets.”

Zuck decided to work for Hanoi instead of for Facebook’s users in Vietnam. And in the US he’d be happy to work for Congress rather than for Facebook’s American users, as long as doing so doesn’t get in between him and his real customers (advertisers), and perhaps even herds more of those customers his way.

Neither “the public good” nor “safety” (for anyone or anything but the political class’s power and Facebook’s profits, at least) enter into the equation.

Zuckerberg’s job is to grow his company’s profits, thereby growing his and his shareholders’ wealth, full stop. That’s what companies do. Their goal, in three words, is to “increase shareholder value.”

One of the most effective ways of doing that, if he can manage it, is getting governments to ensure that Facebook faces little or no competition in its chosen marketplaces.

...and then proceed to the afterword below...

 

Afterword

I'VE BEEN ENJOYING THOMAS KNAPP'S work for some time. Here, Knapp hits, in his pleasingly concise style, on an area of concern which I think is passing beneath the radar of too many people. The evils of censorship are well and widely recognized, but the role played by the regulatory state in fostering the problem is less so.

Knapp's presentation drives the point home nicely.

What is lacking in Knapp's piece is the overall prescription-- the evisceration of the state which people like Zuckerberg (and those at AT&T and Citi-Bank, and Coca-Cola, etc.) use to suppress competition and control the marketplace which is your access to goods and services.

Happily, this evisceration can be accomplished. Admittedly, it's a challenge. This is due to the current and sought-after enhanced control of information exchange by supporters of the totalitarian train in Big Tech and the MSM (as outlined in Knapp's warning), and by the conditioned resistance to certain long-hidden facts and understanding on the part of even many in alt-media.

But those genuinely interested in pulling on that emergency brake line should keep reading.

There is no political solution to the state...

AS SAID, AMERICANS WHO TREASURE INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY need to face the uncomfortable fact that only the dramatic diminishment of the power and footprint of government-- the chief tool of subjugation used by those with designs upon the rest of us-- can avail us now. Nothing else will do.

Unfortunately, remediation efforts undertaken in the political arena and in the courts are virtuous, and merit our enthusiastic support and participation... but they will fail. All such efforts will look to the existing political and legal structure for their implementation. In the current climate, in which the established structures are so heavily compromised and corrupted, such reliance is more a naive hope than a certainty.

Our efforts must focus on striking at the taproot of the problem.

...but there IS a solution:

THE FOUNDERS AND FRAMERS prepared against this precise need, knowing that all governments inevitably lurch toward the accretion of power unto themselves and the corruption which accompanies all accretions of state power. They put into place a solution ready to the hand of individual Americans, entirely bypassing all supervision or approval of the state.

The only requirements to implement that solution are eyes with which to see the problem, reasoning with which to recognize the truth and rightness of the solution, and courage, confidence and clarity of mind enough to pull the trigger in the face of the natural and predictable effort of the targeted rogue state to discourage doing so.

Learn about the Founder's solution at this link. Then help others do so, as well.

A Little Extra

EVEN AS ARDENT A STATIST as Abraham Lincoln, in announcing his willingness to burn the Southern states to the ground in order to keep them paying the tariff for the benefit of Northern interests in his first inaugural address on March 4, 1861, paid at least lip service to the Founders design of leaving control over the fuel available to feed the fires Washington wants to light in the hands of the individual citizenry when he said, "Doing this I deem to be only a simple duty on my part; and I shall perform it, unless my rightful masters, the American people, shall withhold the requisite means..."

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

-Michael Carver, JD

 

"Received your book yesterday. Started reading at 11 PM, finished at 4 AM." "I have 16 feet (literally 16' 4.5") of documents supporting just about everything in your book." "Your book should be required reading for every lawyer before being admitted to any Bar." "I hope you sell a million of them."

-John O'Neil Green, JD

 

“Thanks again for your efforts, Pete. They mean an awful lot to a lot of people.” “…as an attorney, I am humbled by your knowledge and ability in navigating the law. THANK YOU for your hard work and sacrifice.”

-Eric Smithers, JD

 

"I am an attorney and want to give a testimonial to your book, which I find to be compelling. I am exercising these rights for myself and my adult children. I'm even considering making this my new avenue of law practice."

-Nancy "Ana" Garner, JD

Learn what these colleagues already know, then step forward and become part of a coordinated, mutually-supportive squadron focused on developing strategy and deploying the law in courtrooms across the country. There's a lot of suing that needs doing right now.

Do you know someone truly steeped in the Kool-Aid?

 

I mean someone who finds it easier to believe that the far-better-educated, far-more-suspicious-of-government Americans of a hundred years ago were complete morons who granted authority to the state to take whatever it wished from themselves and their posterity than to imagine that they themselves simply misunderstand the true nature of the income tax? Even while knowing that their beliefs about the tax are derived entirely from the representations of those who profit from those beliefs (like tax bureaucrats and "tax professionals")?

 

Do you know someone like that? Shake them awake with the latest (sixteenth) edition of CtC!

C'mon! CtC can't be right! You're crazy!

If CtC were actually right, it would mean the government's been concealing and denying and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

November 9- In 1620, Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower have their first sight of the New World.  In 1688, William of Orange captures Exeter, a major step forward in the course of the 'Glorious Revolution'.   In 1872, a fire breaks out in Boston which goes on to consume 776 buildings over the next twelve hours. Unhindered by FEMA, the citizens quickly rebuild.  In 1906, Theodore Roosevelt takes the first official trip outside the USA of any sitting president (he travels to Panama to inspect progress on the Canal).  In 1918, the German Revolution forces the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm II and declares a republic (ultimately, the Weimar Republic).  In 1938, 'Kristallnacht'-- a Nazi rampage against Germany's by-then-largely-disarmed Jewish population begins.  In 1965, Roger Allen LaPorte sets himself on fire in front of the United Nations building in protest of the Vietnam war.  In 1970, the U.S. Supreme Court refuses to hear a suit by Massachusetts against the U.S. Secretary of Defense over the drafting of citizens for service in an undeclared war (Vietnam).  In 1989, East Germany abandons efforts to prevent crossings into West Berlin.

PRO TIP: If I were the IRS and I wanted to discourage people from rebutting allegations that they had done things I can tax, and wanted to keep them from successfully reclaiming withheld or paid-in money, I would salt the "tax honesty" community with passionate-seeming "legal researchers" who would warn anyone whose ear they captured that filing a 1040 is a bad idea for one reason or another...

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

November 12- In 1912, the frozen bodies of the Scott expedition are found on the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica.  In 1981, the space shuttle Columbia becomes the first spacecraft to be launched twice.  In 1990, Tim Berners-Lee publishes the design of what becomes the World Wide Web.  In 2006, South Ossetia holds its second referendum to validate its 1991 declaration of independence from Georgia (the first one in 1992 having gone unrecognized by the international community).  95% of ethnic South Ossetians participated (66.2% of the population), and the vote was 99% in favor of independence.  The vote was monitored by observers from Germany, Austria, Poland, Sweden and several other countries.  Nonetheless, most Western governments refuse to recognize this second affirmation of the will of the people either, in part because the government of Georgia refuses to do so.

Last Word

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

-Samuel Adams, Architect of the first American Revolution

About The Author

Pete Hendrickson is possibly the most effective lawyer in history, even while never having set foot in a law school, nor ever being a card-carrying member of "the bar". He is the first American in history to secure a complete refund of Social Security and Medicare ‘contributions’ withheld from his earnings (along with all other property taken for federal taxes); further, since 2003 students of his legal analyses and arguments in ‘Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America’’ (CtC), and its sequel, 'Was Grandpa Really a Moron?' have been routinely retaining and recovering billions of dollars which otherwise-- wrongly, but as a matter of course-- would have gone to federal or state government treasuries. This despite concerted efforts by government to suppress his work, and in some cases vigorously oppose the claims by his students.

Hendrickson is also a widely-read essayist on matters of politics, public policy and law; many of these works are collected in his second book, ‘Upholding the Law And Other Observations’. He is a member of Mensa; an award-winning artist; and has paid his dues as a youth soccer coach. He is a long-time political activist as well, and has served as co-chair and platform convention delegate of Michigan’s largest county Libertarian Party organization; as a consultant to the National Right to Work Foundation and Citizens for a Sound Economy; as a member of the Heartland Institute; and as a member of the International Society for Individual Liberty. He is a frequent radio-show guest on stations across the country.

Hendrickson's business career has included nearly a decade-and-a-half at the leading edge of the renewable-energy industry, both as Director of Purchasing and Materials Management and member of the R&D board at Starpak Energy Systems, the mid-west's then-largest solar heating and energy-recovery-and re-utilization company; and as founder and president of AFJ Inc., a high-efficiency lighting design, manufacture and installation firm.

Beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing for the twelve years before his present full-time focus on the restoration of the rule of law in America, Hendrickson directed purchasing activities for the $84 million-a-year multi-family-housing division of the Farmington Hills, Michigan branch of Edward Rose and Sons, with responsibility for 18,000+ apartments, direct supervision of 35 technicians and agents, and incidental authority over several hundred divisional workers. He also ran the division's 10 cable television earth-station and distribution systems in four states, and designed and administered the company's website.

On rather the other end of the spectrum, amidst these more mundane pursuits Hendrickson co-founded and was the primary creative force behind a small board- and card-game company that enjoyed a modest success for several years.

Hendrickson makes his home in southeast Michigan, with his wife and two children. He is currently working on his next book.
