Covid-19 Responses Have Been Consistently Callous

Science decided that love means staying away, masking up and awaiting the vaccine.


From the very outset of the Covid-19 lockdowns — a year ago now — something odd, if not sinister seemed afoot. How quickly the repetitive messaging came from all quarters to quarantine the healthy: “because we’re all in this together”!

A minority, perhaps, wondered: is all this a planned operation, or a spontaneous collection of self-interested responses constantly reinforced by the provoked panic of the masses? Maybe these are not mutually exclusive explanations.

One hypothesis is that there is a larger plan (a “Great Reset”), in which population reduction is one explicit goal. Such talk is dismissed as baseless, though powerful figures have long discussed it openly. And curiously, there has been little scrutiny of the major lapses in judgment that account for a large share of the lives lost during this whole ordeal.

It may be hard to weigh in definitively on any larger agendas, but one thing is clear: so many of our big decisions have wound up costing rather than saving lives — predictably and sometimes deliberately.

First, there were the fiascoes in which Covid patients were directed into nursing homes, knowingly threatening their frail and vulnerable residents. This was not an isolated error but a death-dealing pattern.

There are also ongoing reports that nursing homes in the UK are imposing blanket DNR orders for handicapped residents diagnosed with Covid. Detect a touch of the Lebensunwertes Leben (life unworthy of life) mentality on this front?

Then there was the persistent suppression and vilification of safe and marvelously effective prophylactic and treatment options. Ivermectin, Hydroxycloroquine (with zinc), and Vitamin D sufficiency may not have been known, life-saving remedies right at the outset, but their promise – and demonstrated utility in practice – soon became apparent. These simple, inexpensive measures succeeded when tried elsewhere but were shunned here in the US by medical authorities and the media alike, which surely accounts for a great number of our preventable deaths.

Such egregious callousness is prima facie evidence that saving lives is not what this past year has been about.

This alone would seem sufficient to shatter trust — without even taking into account the radical lockdowns that in myriad ways promise to keep doing more harm than good. Stanford’s Dr Jay Bhattacharya considers them to be the “biggest public health mistake we’ve ever made”, having produced “devastating effects on short and long-term public health.”

What about the vaccines? Are they mainly about protecting lives? That sounds unconvincing when other simpler and sensible protective measures were not endorsed or even pursued; the blunders of this past year hardly invite confidence in the overall strategy — rushed, novel vaccines included.

But could they also pose a threat? It’s a fair question — even though it is necessarily a speculative one. Because we simply do not know what the intermediate and long term effects of this vaccine may or may not be.

There are a couple areas of concern. First, there is talk that these vaccines could result in infertility. This has not been proven — but it hasn’t been disproven either. “Fact-checkers” dismiss it outright, which all too often suggests the truth may be hovering nearby. This may admittedly sound far-fetched, but when a former VP for Pfizer, Dr Michael Yeadon, voices this concern, should it be so readily dismissed?

The mechanism is said to go like this: the spike protein that the mRNA vaccine triggers in order to induce an immune response includes a protein needed to develop a placenta. A vaccinated woman would therefore develop antibodies that could also attack that protein, rendering her unable to form a placenta, i.e. infertile.  Yeadon insists this possibility be ruled out before going any further, which seems reasonable.

Another way these vaccines could lead to loss of life is through a phenomenon called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE) or “pathogenic priming” — which in a nutshell means that vaccinated persons could actually be at greater risk once they come into contact with the real virus, due to a potentially fatal autoimmune response such as the dreaded “cytokine storm”.

This has been a longstanding problem in previous, unsuccessful attempts to develop a coronavirus vaccine. Cats, for example, tolerated the vaccine reasonably well in several studies. But when they were challenged with (i.e. exposed to) the actual coronavirus, they had an extreme overreaction of the immune system.  All of the cats ended up dying. The vaccines rolling out now never underwent any animal trials; those were passed over due to the emergency.

Yet the very case for “emergency use authorisation” of the vaccines (which is not FDA approval) collapses if the authorities had recognised — as they should have — that viable treatments already do exist, as mentioned above. As long as suitable alternatives are available, no emergency authorisation should be given. But science had already decided that love means staying away, masking up and awaiting the vaccine.

The risk that these vaccines could lead to a worsened outcome should be prominently featured in the process of obtaining informed consent, particularly considering it isn’t even on most people’s radar. Instead, we are veering towards various forms of coercion, even without official vaccine mandates.

People who decline to take an unnecessary vaccine, German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently threatened, “might not be able to do certain things” (think vaccine passports and the like). That sounds like a blatant repudiation of the Nuremberg Code, which insists upon voluntary consent — absolutely free from any kind of duress, force, overreach or deceit.

UNESCO has also declared that such consent is required for any “preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention” (e.g. masks, meaningless PCR tests, and vaccines), while further stipulating that anyone may withdraw said consent “at any time and for any reason”.

Private employers and service-providers (e.g. airlines, restaurants) seem poised to go along with the flouting of these safeguards. So do journalists and religious entities, which in saner times we might expect to defend the unthreatening individual (against the patently unfounded presumption that everyone poses a risk to everyone else), demand truth, and castigate the pandemic of lies that have ushered in these dystopian days.

Finally, too few are aware the mRNA vaccines are not technically vaccines but are actually more akin to gene therapy. Vaccines by definition enable you to be exposed to a pathogen without becoming infected, or further transmitting it. No one insists the mRNA “vaccines” do that – only that they can lessen the severity of symptoms.

They do not necessarily create immunity or “stop the spread”, and apparently do not obviate the supposed need to maintain mask mandates and other suffocating restrictions. The logical disconnect here is astonishing: we are being sold, and are buying, the line that these vaccines are — but also kind of aren’t — the solution that will get us back to normal.

This is an acute example of just how much the use of reason — along with genuine esteem for man — has atrophied in our post-Christian, irreligious age.

Hopefully we avoid any worst-case scenarios, and all presently reasonable concerns will prove unfounded. But it is anything but crazy to notice that harms have been visited upon us in the name of health and that inhumanity has been advancing in the name of humanity.

Science Moves Another Step Closer to Human ‘Hatcheries’

Scientists acknowledge the ethical problems — and then ignore them.


Another step in “an explosion of new techniques and ideas for studying early development” of human embryos came last week from Israel. Researchers there have successfully grown mouse embryos for 12 days, which is about half the animal’s natural gestation period.

The rough equivalent for a human would be a first-trimestre baby. They published an article in Nature last week.

The news was crowded out by another big announced about human embryos: that separate research teams have created artificial embryo-like structures. Both pose threats to human dignity, but of the two, the Israeli research may be more dangerous.

It seems that ectogenesis is coming closer – the Brave New World vision of hatcheries where artificially conceived babies are gestated in gigantic vats.

The lead author, Jacob Hanna, of the Weizmann Institute of Science, was interviewed about his work in MIT Technology Review. He acknowledges that there are ethical issues.

“I do understand the difficulties. I understand. You are entering the domain of abortions,” says Hanna. However, he says that researchers are already experimenting on and destroying surplus embryos from IVF clinics. Using the same logic, ectogenesis is not really a big deal.

At the moment, there’s effectively a global ban, amongst reputable scientists, to stop investigating embryos at the 14th day of development. But many bioethicists and researchers want to extend this to some unspecified time span. Hanna is one of them. “I would advocate growing it until day 40 and then disposing of it,” Hanna says. “Instead of getting tissue from abortions, let’s take a blastocyst and grow it.”

At the moment, the mouse embryos only develop if they have been attached to the uterus wall, at least briefly. But Hanna says that his team would like to grow the embryo entirely in vitro.

And if the 14-day limit is scrapped, he looks forward to doing similar research on human embryos.

“Once the guidelines are updated, I can apply, and it will be approved. It’s a very important experiment,” says Hanna. “We need to see human embryos gastrulate and form organs and start perturbing it. The benefit of growing human embryos to week three, week four, week five is invaluable. I think those experiments should at least be considered. If we can get to an advanced human embryo, we can learn so much.”

Eventually it might even be possible to grow embryos for their organs, according to William Hurlbut, a doctor and bioethicist at Stanford University. “I don’t think that organ harvesting is so far-fetched. It could eventually get there. But it’s very fraught, because one person’s boundary is not another person’s boundary.”

And in the other big development last week, as mentioned above, four lab groups almost simultaneously published research showing that it is possible to create structures which are nearly identical to human embryos.

According to Nature, “Two teams published their results in Nature on 17 March; last week, two other groups reported similar results on the bioRxiv preprint server that have not been peer reviewed. These experiments offer a window into a crucial time in human development, and an opportunity to better understand pregnancy loss and infertility without experimenting on human embryos.”

Most of what scientists know about the early development comes from studying human embryos up to 14 days – the legal limit in most countries. The research groups have created structures they call blastoids or iBlastoids which could bypass the need for stopping research at 14 days.

Two of the scientists involved in an Australia-based study explain in The Conversation that: “While iBlastoids and blastoids both seem to be structurally and functionally similar to real blastocysts, it is not yet clear exactly how closely they resemble true embryos formed by a sperm and an egg. While the models were shown to share gene patterns and respond in culture in ways characteristic of actual embryos, researchers also saw significant anomalies, such as unsynchronised growth and cells that are not usually present in an embryo.”

“I’m sure it makes anyone who is morally serious nervous when people start creating structures in a petri dish that are this close to being early human beings,” Daniel Sulmasy, a bioethicist at Georgetown University, told NPR. “They’re not quite there yet, and so that’s good. But the more they press the envelope, the more nervous I think anybody would get that people are trying to sort of create human beings in a test tube.”

These developments, linked to pressures from bioethicists to scrap the 14-day rule, suggest that a Second Great Stem Cell War is just over the horizon. The first began when scientists demanded around 2001 that they be allowed to experiment on human embryos but it subsided after 2007 with the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells. At the time, it seemed impossible to grow embryos in labs beyond 14 days. Now that it looks feasible, there will be another push to grow embryos in Petri dishes up to a new limit.

To invoke Aldous Huxley’s prescient 1932 science fiction novel Brave New World is the oldest, biggest and stalest cliché in bioethics. But, when confronted with this news and with this ethical indifference, imagination fails me.

Folks, we’re heading towards Brave New World.

Guns Prevent Thousands of Crimes Every Day, Research Shows

How many lives are actually saved by gun ownership?


It never fails. A split-second after a mass shooting occurs, grandstanders and ideologues issue statements demanding new gun controls—even if the laws already on the books failed or the laws they want would have made no difference. Case in point: the tragic incidents in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, in early August 2019.

The message is clear: Guns cause violence. Tax them, take them, ban them, regulate them. Do something, maybe anything! Such knee-jerk, emotional responses are dangerous, writes Charles W. Cooke in National Review, “for when a nation sets up a direct pipeline between its emotions and its laws, it does not keep its liberty for long.”

Liberty isn’t the only thing likely to be lost when gun laws are passed to appease emotions over reason, evidence, logic, and rights. Lives will most assuredly be lost, too. Lots of them.

This raises a point amplified in another context almost two centuries ago by Frederic Bastiat in his famous essay with a title that sums it up, “That Which is Seen and That Which is Not Seen.”

How many lives are actually saved by gun ownership? This is a supremely important question that the grandstanders and ideologues usually—and conveniently—ignore. It’s a matter that came immediately to my mind when I learned of an incident here in my own town of Newnan, Georgia, a few days ago. The headline in the Newnan Times-Herald read, “Man Hospitalized After Being Shot Outside Bar.”

A little after 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, August 17, police arrived at Fat Boys Bar & Grill to respond to a shooting. A customer had threatened other patrons, prompting the establishment’s security to forcibly remove him. Enraged at being kicked out, he declared he was going to get a gun “and shoot the place up.”

This very angry (and possibly intoxicated) man then busted the window out of a friend’s car in the parking lot, grabbed a .40 caliber handgun from inside the car, and began firing in the air. In the meantime, Ben McCoy, a man who witnessed all of this from inside his own vehicle, happened to have his rifle with him. Before he could use it, he was shot four times by the man wielding the .40 caliber handgun, who then fled into the woods.

Fortunately, despite being hit in the chest, stomach, left arm and right thigh, McCoy is recuperating, and the assailant was quickly apprehended. No one was killed, but the situation would likely have been tragically different if Ben McCoy and his rifle hadn’t distracted the gunman.

Of course, in this particular incident it’s most unfortunate that an innocent man was shot. Don’t lose sight of the fact that his very presence, with a rifle, still prevented what could have been a bloodbath that might have even killed him too. What’s far more common is innocent gun owners using or brandishing a weapon and saving lives without any injuries at all except sometimes for the assailant. I chose this example because it was local and I wanted to express appreciation to Mr. McCoy.

I checked online and found some fascinating numbers. A good website with footnotes and references to authoritative sources is GunFacts.info. There I learned the following:

  • Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 every day. Most often, the gun is never fired, and no blood (including the criminal’s) is shed.
  • Every year, 400,000 life-threatening violent crimes are prevented using firearms.
  • 60 percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. Forty percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed.
  • Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are at home because they fear being shot.
  • Fewer than 1 percent of firearms are used in the commission of a crime.

If you doubt the objectivity of the site above, it’s worth pointing out that the Center for Disease Control, in a report ordered by President Obama in 2012 following the Sandy Hook Massacre, estimated that the number of crimes prevented by guns could be even higher—as many as 3 million annually, or some 8,200 every day.

Another excellent source of information on this topic (and many more current issues) is the Gun Control page at JustFacts.org. (Full disclosure: I serve on the board of directors of JustFacts because I believe in the organization’s objectiveness, accuracy, and integrity.)

In “Defensive Gun Use is More Than Shooting Bad Guys,” James Agresti, founder and president of JustFacts, provided overwhelming evidence from multiple sources showing that defensive gun use is more common and effective than anti-gun fanatics like The New York Times suggest or will admit. Agresti says that “people who use a gun for defense rarely harm (much less kill) criminals. This is because criminals often back off when they discover their targets are armed.”

John Lott, author of the book, “More Guns, Less Crime,” is president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, another outstanding source for info on this subject. He writes:

By 66 percent to 32 percent, economists and criminologists answer that gun-free zones are “more likely to attract criminals than they are to deter them.” A 60 percent to 40 percent margin thinks that guns in the home do not increase suicides. And a 62 percent to 35 percent spread says that guns are used in self-defense to stop crime more often than in the commission of crime.

This may explain why even The New York Times hasn’t yet put a billboard up by its offices that screams, “This is a Gun-Free Zone. There are No Guns Here.”

If we can just confiscate the estimated 350 million guns in the country, you might ask, then won’t we eliminate the offensive use of firearms, so we won’t need any of those many defensive uses? Good luck with that. Is there any reason to believe that such a war on guns would be any more successful than the government’s war on drugs? Even a fifth-grader could tell you that it would be largely the innocent who would be disarmed. Criminals would have no problem keeping their guns or getting replacements on a thriving black market.

So that leaves me with gratitude for the Ben McCoys of the world, the law-abiding gun owners who are every bit as important as the cops—and likely even more so—in the effort to keep the innocent safe and sound.

Media Are [Finally] Starting to Reconsider Florida’s Pandemic Strategy

After months of scathing criticism, US media and politicians are reconsidering Florida’s response to the pandemic.


In July, Adam Weinstein of The New Republic wrote that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was leading Americans “on a Death March” by not embracing the same COVID-19 restrictions as many other US states.

“Keeping churches open—as well as beaches, restaurants, and dividend-yielding commerce—has been a big priority for Ron DeSantis,” wrote Weinstein. “DeSantis has resisted calls from medical experts and Florida residents to return to quarantine measures or shutdowns of nonessential businesses.”

Weinstein wrote that DeSantis, instead of listening to the experts, was simply encouraging residents to behave responsibly, which Weinstein called a “libertarian-dreamer gambit.” Such an approach, he wrote, made DeSantis an accomplice to murder and perhaps even genocide.

“As I write this, the virus has killed 44 times more Americans than died on 9/11,” Weinstein wrote. “Eventually, many of our political leaders will be seen for what they are in this: witting accomplices to homicide on a scale that Republicans might call genocide, if they watched it unfold in another country.”

Weinstein’s comments seem hyperbolic today (to put it mildly), but he was hardly the only member of the media and the political class making such claims, even though Florida’s COVID-19 mortality rate was far lower than many other US states (and remains so today).

More than six months later, US media and politicians are reconsidering Florida’s response to the pandemic, Axios reports: “After a solid year of living with a pandemic, the national press is beginning to ask the question that even Democrats have been quietly pondering in the Sunshine State: Was Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pandemic response right for Florida?”

The article highlights a pair of recent articles—one in The New York Times and one in The Los Angeles Times—that compared Florida’s pandemic response and outcome to that of California, a state where the virus exploded over the winter despite the fact that the Golden State had the harshest lockdown in the US.

The LA Times and the NYT are not the only media taking a closer look, either. The Associated Press published its own analysis over the weekend—“Virus tolls similar despite governors’ contrasting actions”—and Newsweek published a piece under a similar headline Monday: “Florida Sees Same COVID Case Rate as California, Despite No Statewide Restrictions.”

Here is the lead to the AP’s story:

Nearly a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the nation’s first statewide shutdown because of the coronavirus, masks remain mandated, indoor dining and other activities are significantly limited, and Disneyland remains closed.

By contrast, Florida has no statewide restrictions. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has prohibited municipalities from fining people who refuse to wear masks. And Disney World has been open since July.

Despite their differing approaches, California and Florida have experienced almost identical outcomes in COVID-19 case rates.

How have two states that took such divergent tacks arrived at similar points?

All four articles try to puzzle out the answer to this riddle, and many answers are offered. Several people interviewed said the comparison between California and Florida shouldn’t be made.

“In many places we have much greater vulnerability than Florida, so it’s comparing apples and oranges,” L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti told the LA Times.

“The comparison of California and Florida is not fair,” Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, told the paper. “California is a much harder situation than what Florida has to deal with.”

How these claims fit with the reality that Florida’s percentage of population over 60 is about 50 percent higher than California’s is not explained.

While none of the articles come out and call lockdowns an outright failure, overall it’s clear something has changed since July. For starters, The New York Times points out that fear played a role in shaping at least some COVID policies (and many responses to those policies), which today look ridiculous in hindsight.

“When [Florida] did not close beaches, there was national outrage, though the decision seems obvious in retrospect, given how much safer people are outside,” the Times notes.

The Grey Lady also alludes to the tradeoffs involved in strict lockdowns. Patricia García, a 34-year-old Democrat and writer who moved to Florida from New York in 2017, told the paper she unexpectedly found herself defending DeSantis’s policies to friends back home, because she enjoyed having a life.

“People here, they’ve been able to work. The kids have been able to go to school,” García said. “We have this reputation in Florida of being all Florida Man and crazyland. But I’d much rather be in Florida than California, New York or Chicago.”

Overall, the articles exploring the Florida-California responses and results represent a remarkable shift from last summer, when Weinstein and others were using fevered language comparing DeSantis’s laissez-faire approach to a “death march.”

Such rhetoric was unconscionable for many reasons, not the least of which was the fact that we already knew that COVID-19 wasn’t as deadly as previously believed, modelers had been proven astronomically wrong in their predictions, and there was reason to doubt the efficacy of lockdowns.

It’s clear that the presumption that lockdowns and other government restrictions are effective is gone. This is not to say the debate over the (in)efficacy of lockdowns is over (as Mayor Eric Garcetti’s claim that the California-Florida comparison is not “fair” makes clear). But it does show we’ve entered a new phase in the debate.

For months on end, as fear of the virus took hold, Americans were bombarded with phrases like “stay home, stay safe” and “if it saves just one life” that were designed to make them bow to whatever restrictions bureaucrats and political leaders said were necessary.

“Everybody knows corona is no walk in the park, because you literally can’t walk in the park, but at some point the daily drumbeat of depression and terror veers into panic porn,” comedian Bill Maher observed at one point.

Implicit in the fear and slogans was the idea that government action would protect others and save lives, thus orders were not to be questioned. To challenge this premise or the wisdom of a particular policy invited accusations of selfishness and callousness toward human life. (As did mere inaction.)

Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, today makes it clear such thinking is far from helpful.

“This is going to be an important question that we have to ask ourselves: What public health measures actually were the most impactful, and which ones had negligible effect or backfired by driving behavior underground?” Adalja told the Associated Press.

This shift in thinking is important because it’s related to something overlooked (or mostly overlooked) in the articles.

One might ask, Why must we analyze which public health measures worked? Why not simply take extreme precautions? What’s the harm in that?

The harms, it turns out, are severe.

COVID cases and mortality throughout California and Florida are compared at length in the news articles, as are some economic data (like the fact that California’s unemployment rate is nearly double Florida’s). But there is very little discussion about the unintended consequences of lockdowns, which are legion.

Collateral damage of lockdowns includes severe mental health deterioration, increased suicide, heightened drug and alcohol abuse, education loss, mass social unrest, health procedures deferred or foregone, extreme loneliness, soaring global poverty, and countless others adverse consequences. In many cases, these consequences hit young people the hardest.

“We’ve seen an upsurge in really bad suicide attempts,” and the pandemic is likely behind that increase, Dr. Taranjeet Jolly, an adult and pediatric psychiatrist at Penn State Health’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, recently told WebMD.

Indeed, the Associated Press recently reported that doctors are witnessing an “international epidemic” of child suicide.

These are the unseen costs of the lockdowns that will linger for decades. But Dr. Anthony Fauci remains unmoved. The nation’s top infectious-diseases expert continues to warn against easing virtually any restrictions.

“We want the levels of virus very, very low, and then we will have much, much easier time to safely pull back and get the economy and all the other things that we want to be normal,” Fauci told “Face the Nation” over the weekend.

Fortunately, states across the US have seen enough. They are reopening in droves, despite Fauci’s warnings. Last week, Maryland became the latest state to reopen its economy when Gov. Larry Hogan announced that retailers, eateries, and other businesses will be permitted to reopen without capacity restrictions. Governors in Texas, Mississippi, Arizona, Connecticut, Arizona, West Virginia and beyond have announced similar plans.

This is the beauty of federalism. America’s founders understood the best way to form an enduring Union and protect liberty was to disperse power for self-governance and among the states, which serve (in the immortal words of Justice Louis Brandeis) as “laboratories of democracy.” This allows Americans the freedom to vote with their feet.

“I’d much rather be in Florida,” Patricia García told the New York Times.

Thankfully, because of federalism, Americans have that option.

Let’s Kick This Monster’s Ass!

Democrats are hell-bent on implementing a “carbon enforcement mechanism.” What does that mean? It means the enactment of absolutely massive new fossil fuel taxes that will impose draconian lifestyle changes on all but the wealthiest Americans. As we brace ourselves for a plethora of involuntary sacrifices, it’s comforting to know that the wealthy are fully on board at doing their part to help save the planet, none more so than the climate crusading Hollywood megastar mentioned in the article below. You‘ll be humbled when you read about the heroic effort this remarkable champion of the environment is making to save us all from “climate change.”

There’s little doubt that teen climate activist Greta Thunberg believes that human use of fossil fuels is destroying the planet. She believes that with all her heart, but she is being played as a fool by the dissembling wealthy and powerful people who terrorize the world’s children with horrifying claims of impending climate doom.

Of the filthy-rich celebrities who preach the loudest about the need for “each and every one of us” to cut way back on using fossil fuels, not a single one practices what they preach, including one of the world’s most famous pseudo climate crusaders, Hollywood megastar Harrison Ford, who owns multiple mansions, plus a reported 12 private planes, nine motorcycles and six gasoline-powered automobiles.

Although his opulent lifestyle depends upon copious amounts of fossil fuels, Ford speaks forcefully about his undying commitment to “saving the planet.” His passion was on full display at the 2019 Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.

“Let’s kick this monster’s ass!”

Why are Hollywood stars used as shills for irrational climate hysteria? Because they’re actorsThey are trained to project emotions they don’t actually feel. In one of the most convincing performances of his award-winning career, Ford concluded his speech at the 2019 Global Climate Action Summit with this zinger:

We all suffer the effects of climate change. So, let’s turn off our phones, let’s roll up our sleeves, and let’s kick this monster’s ass!

At the beginning of his carefully rehearsed performance, and with his talent for feigning raw emotions on full display, the ass-kicking high school graduate angrily bellowed this at his audience of adoring useful idiots:

Stop giving power to people who don’t believe in science! Or worse than that, pretend they don’t believe in science for their own self-interest!

Okay, but what about people like him who say they believe in climate science to shield themselves from criticism for burning unconscionable amounts of fossil fuels? In a video promotion for a climate conference in Dubai, the motion picture megastar said this:

It’s up to you and me to act now to face the greatest moral crisis of our time.

Moral crisis? Act now? Fair enough. So what’s he doing, on a personal level, to “act now”? Other than lecturing people he looks down upon as his moral and intellectual lessers, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

His enviable real estate holdings include a 14,000 sq. ft. mansion in the heart of one of the most exclusive areas of Los Angeles. He also owns a magnificent Jackson Hole, Wyoming estate, the plans for which he sketched out in Paris while working on a film with fugitive child rapist, Roman Polanski.

Unfortunately for the planet, Ford’s obscenely excessive use of fossil fuel energy isn’t limited to when he’s on the ground working on movies with child rapists or indulging himself in the comfort of his fully air-conditioned mega-mansions: he also flies the world at will in private jets, the most environmentally destructive means of air travel.

Flying up the California coast to get himself a cheeseburger

An outspoken supporter of stratospheric carbon taxes that would prevent ordinary American families from taking a commercial flight to go on vacation, this paragon of environmental virtue-signaling pampers himself by flying in his private planes as often as he wants and for any purpose he wants, the planet be damned. As reported by Breitbart, he boated this:

Flying is like good music; it elevates the spirit and it’s an exhilarating freedom. I’m so passionate about flying that I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger.

Like other filthy-rich climate hucksters, Harrison Ford flies all over the world for any reason that tickles his fancy, including for trivial purposes like getting himself a cheeseburger.

As evidenced by their elephantine carbon footprints, the ass-kicking cheeseburger addict and his fellow high-flying climate hypocrites are not the least bit concerned that man-made CO2 emissions are harming the planet. A study by researchers at Sweden’s Lund University found that most wealthy climate celebrities are doing nothing to change their insatiable private jet habits, with some responsible for a thousand times more CO2 emissions that the average person.

HORROR VIDEO: 65 year-old Texas woman tackled and arrested for not wearing mask

This is the worst thing I’ve seen.

She did nothing wrong. And the maskless cop at the end, that was too much. That was just the icing on the cake. If it was fiction, I would say you’re overdoing it, we get the point.

The Nazis used sickness to impose their politics, too. The Third Reich did the same thing – using tuberculosis instead of COVID-19.

One small point, the idea that banks are “private” businesses is contemptuous of the American public, considering the trillions of American taxpayer dollars that the banks receive. QE1, QE2, etc. etc.

The Democrat party is the enemy.

65 Year Old Woman Tackled, Arrested For Refusing To Mask A Day After Abbott Lifted Mandate

By: Citizen Free Press, March 16, 2021

The mask mandate was lifted statewide on March 10, but the very next day a 65-year old woman was tackled to the ground by police after being told by a Galveston Bank of America branch to mask up.

She later recounted in an interview with FOX Houston that she was there to close her account, and that she couldn’t enter the drive-thru. “Ma’am you have to leave…,” the bank staff told her upon entering. “I just want to close my account, I’m gonna get my money and then I’ll leave. I can’t use the drive-thru, I’m pulling the rig.”

BLOOD LUST: COVID Vaccines, Culling the Population — Part 2

“The greatest lie ever told is that vaccines are safe and effective.” ― Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz

“The more it (vaccination) is supported by public authorities, the more will its dangers and disadvantages be concealed or denied.” ― M. Beddow Bayly, English physician and anti-vaccination campaigner

“I am and have been for years a confirmed anti-vaccinationist. Anti-vaccination has no backing from the orthodox medical opinion. A medical man who expresses himself against vaccination loses caste. Tremendous pecuniary interests too have grown around vaccination.”  –  Mahatma Gandhi

“There is no substitute for a militant freedom.” –  President Calvin Coolidge


We’ve taken God out of our schools, out of society and even out of America’s pulpits, and for a country founded on the laws of the Almighty, we are facing massive destruction and death unless we confront the evil of America’s encroaching communist revolution and destroy it.

Hitler copied America’s eugenics from the 1920s and our grisly experiments on impaired citizens. Those experiments continue today by men who would be gods; our people face great peril and few perceive the dangers.

Dictatorial Control Through Fear

The totalitarian control of our citizenry, the censorship of truth, the damning evidence of lies about the virus, the inaccurate PCR tests, (Sars PCR tests are scientifically meaningless and only 3% of patients tested actually have what is believed to be the Wuhan-virus) the false viral death counts, the face diapers, the social distancing, the lockdowns and now “Operation Warp Speed” Covid vaccines, all of it was planned and executed with precision by China, their Democrat Party comrades and Republican Party Trotskyites.

And folks, if those masks worked, why weren’t family members allowed to be with their elderly relatives?  Because the masks are another damned lie.  Even the Center for Disease Control (CDC) admitted mask mandates do not make any statistical difference.  Now a study is reporting that long-term mask wearing may contribute to advanced stage lung cancer.  Get the danged things off your face and breathe freely!

Over a year ago, Fauci, Birx, Redfield, and the World Health Organization (WHO) struck fear into the hearts of Americans with the false perils of Covid-19.  They were lying to us.  The CDC now claims that 94% of all coronavirus deaths were supplementary, meaning, the person had co-morbidities. Less than 10,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 alone.  The CDC apparently changed Covid criteria that inflated fatalities ten-fold, and actually broke federal law. Pdf document

Two leading Swedish health experts explained that the lockdowns have killed as many people as Covid, and in my estimation more, because the Wuhan-virus numbers are skewed to promote fear. The consequences of lockdowns are many, and this approach was chosen for a virus with a 99.95 percent survival rate for people under the age of 70, and a 95 percent survival rate for people over the age of 70.  Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD, wrote an article for The Hill titled “Facts, not fear, will stop the pandemic.”  Read it…the results of lockdowns are more than devastating, they are deadly.  Fear is not from God.

The communists in control of America’s federal government have passed a 1.9 trillion Covid relief package that gives little to hurting Americans, but a great deal to bail out democratic failing states.  The pork-filled package, which is supposed to help struggling Americans is yet another colossal waste of taxpayer dollars.  On Page 613 of the Democrats’ 628-page relief bill is a provision calling for the contribution of “not less than $3.5 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which lists the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as a “key partner.”

Bill Gates, eugenicist and depopulation advocate, whose vaccines have damaged recipients, is funded by our tax dollars.  The Gates Foundation makes a fortune on their vaccines…vaccines which have injured, sterilized and killed. (Note: he also has a Jeffrey Epstein problem.)

Gates is being investigated by the Supreme Court of India after it has come to light that his vaccine empire, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has been illegally testing a cancer vaccine on young tribal girls, resulting in devasting health issues for the children they are tested on.  Sounds a lot like his buddy Anthony Fauci.

In July, 2020, Just the News reported on Fauci’s career being dotted with ethics and safety controversies inside the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  His article included the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID’s) calloused approach, under Fauci’s leadership of using human guinea pigs as test subjects. They were not volunteers. Fauci chose foster children from New York, Illinois, and elsewhere. The children were administered a non-tested AIDS drug without any promises of patient protection. Many of them were not even provided with patient advocates, as required by law, to monitor the children’s health as the drug surged through their veins. As a result of Fauci’s negligence, 10 of the children died. Fauci’s wife, Christine Grady heads the Human Subject Research unit at NIHNegligent homicide?

Americans need to understand how our government health agencies are in cahoots with wealthy outside organizations and how their ill-gotten funds grease the skids of their illicit human experiments and population reduction ambitions. Fauci, as head of NIAID, has taken millions from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as the Clinton Foundation along with tens of billions from US taxpayers for bogus research.

First came fear and the lie that there was no treatment…when there was early treatment.  It’s been proven by New York physician, Dr. Zelenko and America’s Frontline Doctors led by Simone Gold, M.D., J.D.  HCQ, Azithromycin and Zinc were the cheapest early treatments, denied by the likes of Fauci and leftist friends.

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel said an experimental anti-viral drug Molnupiravir could “be the future” of coronavirus treatment, opening another door for early treatment of the Wuhan-virus and avoiding vaccines.

India, who is second to China in making America’s drugs, has given their citizens home Covid kits at a cost of $2.65 per person.

Medical Bondage

Nazi style green camps are being called for by the CDC to prevent the spread of a flu that more than 98 percent of Americans recover from.  These quarantine camps are talking about taking you away from your family for up to six months.

IBM is now working on a Digital Health Pass, reprising their Holocaust work. Click on the link and watch the one-minute video.  IBM is partnering with mRNA vaccine developer Moderna to provide its computational platforms and machines to enforce vaccine compliance.  Edwin Black’s book, IBM and the Holocaust proves the deep involvement by IBM who consciously co-planned and co-organized the Holocaust for the Nazis, micromanaged by its president Thomas J Watson from New York and Paris.  Mass murdering more than six million Jews isn’t enough for IBM, it seems. Now they’re targeting six billion human beings with deadly vaccines that install a kind of “operating system” into the human body, hijacking the body’s cells to produce alien proteins via mRNA “software code” that isn’t even human.

Pfizer vaccine makers have demanded countries put up military bases, embassies, and bank reserves as collateral for Covid-19 vaccine injury lawsuits.  In the U.S., vaccine makers already enjoy full indemnity against injuries occurring from the vaccine under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act). If you’re injured, you’d have to file a compensation claim with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which is funded by U.S. taxpayers.

A significant problem with the CICP is that it’s administered within the Department of Health and Human Services, which is also sponsoring the Covid vaccination program. This conflict of interest makes the CICP less likely to admit fault with the vaccine.  The maximum CICP payout you can receive, even in cases of permanent disability or death, is $250,000 per person, and you first have to exhaust your private insurance policy before the CICP kicks in.

Scientists at Sloan Kettering discover mRNA inactivates tumor-suppressing proteins, meaning it can promote cancer.

New York Governor Cuomo sent Covid patients to nursing homes where thousands more were infected and died.  Residents who died from the virus may have been undercounted by as much as 50%, according to an investigation conducted by the New York Attorney General’s office, which said that many of those patients died after being moved to the hospital and were thus not counted as nursing home deaths.

First the elderly, now the disabled.  Cuomo also sent Wuhan-virus patients to homes for the disabled and that policy remains in effect.  At least 552 residents of such homes have died of the virus. More than 6,900 out of the more than 34,552 who live in the facilities have been infected, the state’s Office for People with Developmental Disabilities said.

Most Americans are unaware of United Nations Agenda 21.  The goal is the elimination of 85 percent of the world’s population, and they’ve been at it since the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.

SARS-CoV-2

Sars-CoV-2 has never been isolated, so why the vaccine and what is it really doing?

Torsten Engelbrecht, Dr Stefano Scoglio & Konstantin Demeter wrote, Phantom Virus: In search of Sars-CoV-2.  They stated the following:

Even the Robert Koch Institute and other health authorities cannot present decisive proof that a new virus named SARS-CoV-2 is haunting us. This alone turns the talk of dangerous viral mutations into irresponsible fearmongering and the so-called SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests definitely into a worthless venture.

In a request for a study which shows complete isolation and purification of the particles claimed to be SARS-CoV-2, Michael Laue from one of the world’s most important representatives of the COVID-19 “panicdemic,” the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI), answered that, I am not aware of a paper which purified isolated SARS-CoV-2.

This is a more than remarkable statement, it is admitting a complete failure. This concession is in line with the statements we presented in our article “COVID-19 PCR Tests Are Scientifically Meaningless” which Off-Guardian published on June 27th, 2020 — a piece that was the first one worldwide outlining in detail why SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests are worthless for the diagnosis of a viral infection.

One of the crucial points in this analysis was that the studies contending to have shown that SARS-CoV-2 is a new and potentially deadly virus have no right to claim this, particularly because the studies claiming “isolation” of so-called SARS-CoV-2 in fact failed to isolate (purify) the particles said to be the new virus.

Rewards were offered for scientific proof of the process of isolation of SARS-CoV-2 and its genetic substance.  No records were forthcoming.

Medical Apartheid

Want that vaccine?  It’s going to destroy your immune system and make you susceptible to future viruses that will kill you…don’t believe that?  Take a listen to America’s Frontline Doctor, Lee Merritt, M.D., who was interviewed by Senior Editor of the New American Magazine, Alex Newman.

Dr. Lee Merritt explains her belief that America is currently facing what appears to be biological warfare. She says the current situation with the Wuhan virus is an unconventional, unrestricted warfare being waged by billionaire technocratic elites against humanity. Whether the Chicoms released the Wuhan-virus on purpose or by accident is impossible to know, but the implications are enormous. And when it comes to the new vaccines, Dr. Merritt, a former military doctor and orthopedic surgeon who studied biological warfare, reviewed previous animal studies on the technology underlying the vaccines; it paints a dire picture.  (Thanks to operation warp speed, Big Pharma was allowed to skip several stages of testing, including animal testing.) Her curricula vitae lets you know you’re hearing the truth.

Dr. Merritt and other physicians knew right away that antimicrobial agents like Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin are effective against microbes in viruses, and they knew this before President Trump even mentioned HCQ, although it is not taught to today’s medical students.  These treatments have been known since the 1970s, but are discouraged because they would eliminate the $69 billion vaccine industry that fill the coffers of depopulation socialists like Fauci and Gates.

The big shocker in this interview is that the Obama administration allowed the funding of bioweapon virologists all over America. The Covid-19 virus was originally studied at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill until it was removed and then funded by Fauci’s NIH in Wuhan China.  Dr. Merritt states that a virologist from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which is the regular armed forces of the communist People’s Republic of China, has been funded by us to work in our Army bioweapons lab.  Insanity and treason!

These vaccines were rolled out to the public before the FDA even approved them.  This new form of vaccine was tried on animals and they were fine until a virus was introduced to them and they all died.  There has never been a successful animal study where any have lived, so why are humans now the guinea pigs?  Dr. Merritt believes this could be a binary poison with a delayed death inasmuch as no physician knows exactly what this mRNA is targeting even though the vaccine makers claim they do; it’s never been tried before.  She suggests that two years later another virus could be released and cause death just as in the animals.  The mRNA vaccine actually depletes your natural immune system.  China must be thrilled that they’re giving these inoculations to our military.

Alex Newman commented that there were hundreds of Chinese communist virologists working with vaccine makers, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Glasco Smith Kline.  Terrifying!

Hacking the Software of Life

Veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann discovered a 2017 Ted Talk presentation by Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna Inc., where he clearly explains in layperson’s language just what the mRNA technology does in vaccines. Zaks states, they are “hacking the software of life,” by injecting their own genetic code into humans. What we are witnessing in this new class of “vaccines” is clearly the wedding together of digital technology born out of the computer age, with Darwinian biology and medicine.  It is transhumanism.

In short, the new medical technocrats of medicine actually believe they can improve the design plan of human beings, replacing God.  This is communist control of medicine, where man’s desire to dethrone God, making himself god, is the ultimate goal.

On February 4th, 2021, Leo Hohman reported that, “Moderna describes its new vaccine as “a computer operating system” but I was not aware at that time that Zaks had spoken three years ago about this, totally debunking the establishment media’s lie that mRNA vaccines don’t alter your genetic code.”

Conclusion

Non-White People At Higher Risk of Covid Infection, Hospitalization and Death

The media will not talk about the rates of infection, hospitalization and deaths of nonwhites compared to white people. Why is this?

It appears the media is anti-white, because of white supremacy bias, all but ignores the facts that white (Caucasian) people are better equipped to deal this the Covid pandemic than nonwhites. Whites are healthier, wealthier, have access to better healthcare resources and are more educated than nonwhites, with the notable exception of Asians.

According to the Center for Disease Control:

Race and ethnicity are risk markers for other underlying conditions that affect health including socioeconomic status, access to health care, and exposure to the virus related to occupation, e.g., frontline, essential, and critical infrastructure workers.

Rate ratios compared to White, Non-Hispanic persons American Indian or Alaska Native, Non-Hispanic persons Asian, Non-Hispanic persons Black or African American, Non-Hispanic persons Hispanic or Latino persons
Cases1 1.7x 0.7x 1.1x 1.3x
Hospitalization2 3.7x 1.0x 2.9x 3.1x
Death3 2.4x 1.0x 1.9x 2.3x

1 Data Source: Data reported by state and territorial jurisdictions (accessed 03/10/2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US intercensal population estimate. Calculations use only the 53% of case reports that have race and ethnicity data available; this can result in inaccurate estimates of the relative risk among groups.

2 Data source: COVID-NET (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covid-net/purpose-methods.html, accessed March 1, 2020, through February 27, 2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US standard COVID-NET catchment population.

3 Data source: NCHS provisional death counts (https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Deaths-involving-coronavirus-disease-2019-COVID-19/ks3g-spdg, data through March 6, 2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US intercensal population estimate.

CONCLUSION

Whites are better equipped to deal with the Covid pandemic, according to the CDC.

The Façade Of The Covid Fraud

Actually, this is an account of much more than the façade of the fraud. When we analyze all aspects of it, we have to conclude that the Covid plandemic is up there with the biggest lies of all time. It is even bigger than the plan to tear down the Great Wall of China which resulted in the Boxer Rebellion that claimed thousands of lives.

Currently, of all the lies resulting in the Kangaroo Court attempting to impeach former President Trump, the biggest one of all is the one about President Trump inciting the riot at the capitol on Jan. 6th. Nevertheless, the perennial lie that just keeps ballooning as it continues – is the COVID-19 fraud.

According to Jon Rappoport’s January 29th article in the peoplesvoice.org, he is explaining that there is no Covid pandemic, but then he asks why are people dying? He does a great job of explaining it and I am in complete agreement with his contention.  He points out that the whole notion that Covid-19 is one health condition is a lie. COVID is not one thing.

He states that this is both the most difficult and yet the simplest point to accept and understand and that we shouldn’t reject the existence of the virus and then say, “So what is the cause of people dying?” There is no ONE CAUSE. There is no one illness. There is no “it.”

Jon goes on to tell us that the biggest sources of illnesses we are dealing with are lung conditions: various kinds of pneumonia: flu and flu-like disease, TB, and other unnamed lung/respiratory problems all of which are being relabeled as Covid. It’s a repackaging scheme. People are dying for those traditional reasons, and their deaths are being called “COVID.”  The old is artificially made new, but it is still old.

In this wide-ranging group of people who have traditional lung conditions, by far the largest component are the elderly and frail.

They are dying in nursing homes, in hospitals, in their own homes and apartments. In addition to their lung problems, they have been suffering from a whole host of other conditions and they’ve been treated with toxic drugs. They’re terrified that they might receive a diagnosis of “COVID,” and if they’re given that diagnosis, they’re isolated and cut off from friends and family. They give up and die basically of loneliness.

This is forced premature death.

My wife’s niece was recently diagnosis with COVID and her doctor didn’t send her to the hospital. He told her that they would just kill her there; so, she stayed home and a relative carried her to the doctor’s office a number of times for treatment. I am now happy to report that she is successfully overcoming whatever she had.  The fact that people were dying in hospitals, regardless of whether it was from COVID or not, it was labeled Covid which allowed the hospital to receive a huge payment from the government for each death.

America’s hospitals were given a vested interest, not only in people dying, but perhaps in allowing them to die when ventilators were use.  And evidently, according to what is being reported, this practice is being implemented all over the country.

The article continues…

Rappoport states that none of the “COVID deaths” in the entire world requires the existence of a new virus.  For instance, in Wuhan, where the whole business began, the first “COVID” cases of pneumonia occurred in a city whose air is heavily polluted. In China, every year, roughly 300,000 people die from pneumonia. That means millions of cases. None of these deaths need to be explained by invoking a new virus.

Add to this the fact that the PCR test for the virus is irreparably flawed and useless (for a variety of reasons I have explained in other articles). The test spits out false-positives like a fire hose. Thus, the high case numbers. The authorities have to go to such extremes to paint a picture of a spreading viral epidemic…in order to plant fear and thus compliance in the citizenry.  However, there is no evidence that an actual germ is traveling around the world felling people. The “evidence” is invented.

The “pandemic” is invented.

The fraud is promoted.

If you think there are other major reasons to explain “why all these people are dying,” keep in mind that “lung” conditions are an expanded category worldwide. For instance, there are about one billion cases of flu-like illness every year on planet earth.  Repackaging/relabeling just a small percentage of those cases alone would account for all official COVID death numbers.

What’s new about COVID is the story. That’s what is being sold: a story about a virus.

Not only are these lies resulting in a huge amount of fraud but also in the fact that hundreds, maybe even thousands, are being allowed to die who very possibly could have overcome whatever their illnesses were.  They were deprived of several more years of life, especially if they were only in their seventies, or maybe even their early eighties.

I’m looking forward to my 94th birthday. And since I really don’t have much wrong with me, I think I can avoid hospitals for several years; maybe even forever. I have arthritis, but who doesn’t at my age. I manage to keep it tolerable with the use of apple cider vinegar and honey. This also keeps my immune system up to par. I haven’t had a cold or any kind of a virus for 60 plus years. The only time I had the flu was when I took a flu shot and that was 63 years ago. I haven’t taken anymore flu shots, and I don’t intend to every take another.

According to the research done over a hundred years ago by Dr. D.C. Jarvis of Vermont, the excess acid which enters the bloodstream is kicked out and distributed throughout the remainder of the body to form a bed of immunity against viruses and a host of other illnesses.  In Jarvis’s book on arthritis, he states that viruses and other common illnesses cannot live in a body with an acid medium.

If God continues to bless me as He has all of my life, I expect to continue writing these articles for maybe six or seven more years. My proofreader recently told me that if I reached the point that I couldn’t remember all the words for writing an article to just send her the skeleton and she would put the meat on it and I believe her.

Back to what this façade of a plandemic, this contrived, concocted illness and what it is all about.

It’s at the root of aiding and bringing to fruition the one hundred plus year old conspiracy to bring in the New World Order, i.e., a socialist/communist global government.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have used the word “conspiracy,” since it appears most people have a problem wrapping their minds around it, or even to discern a smidgen of how it operates, but this is their “agenda.” Some folks are able to understand how it incrementally, over periods of time, can successfully arrive at the goal of a totalitarian dictatorship running the entire planet.  It truly is a conspiracy.

The few people who notice we’re on a slippery slope only occasionally catch a glimpse of something that seems dark and dangerous…but they forget it as few of them have had academic history lessons for the last 100 years.

Nevertheless, the fake pandemic was the key to the globalists’ agenda, i.e., the conspirators’ strategy in deploying the plan to first steal the 2020 Presidential election.

Covid provided the excuse, “necessity” for the so-called authority for mail in ballots. The plan worked perfectly and despite all the documented evidence of fraud, the judicial system in America is as connected to the Deep State as is the DOJ. According to reported cases of evidence, tons of fake ballots were delivered to various district aiding in the duplicitous election results. In many precincts, there were far more mail-in ballots than there were registered voters.

Numerous reports now claim that speaking truthfully about the stolen election could result in being labeled as terrorist activity and those who engage in same could possibly face legal consequences.

Natural News has rightfully stated,

“We must now conclude that both political parties (Dems and the GOP) are pro-vaccine, pro-death and anti-humanity. Big Pharma and the global genocide industry have captured all the political leaders everywhere (with bribes and campaign donations), and no prominent political party will dare tell the truth about how vaccines are being used to help rid the world of what globalists consider to be “excess population.”

“A group of Utah doctors have discovered something terrifying in recent mammogram screenings taken at the Breast Care Centre in Salt Lake City, Utah. Women who were recently injected with experimental COVID vaccines suffer from abnormal inflammation of the lymph nodes in their breasts. According to the Intermountain Health Care doctors, women who take the covid-19 vaccines are showing symptoms of breast cancer.” Here is the full report.”

When all aspects of the COVID “crises” are viewed analytically and truthfully, we have to conclude that from the very outset the Covid-19 vaccine was concocted and contrived to produce perceived crises of fear among the people. Like lemmings, they have gone along with the façade of fraud resulting in the globalist totalitarians completely destroying the liberty and freedoms of America.  Their intention is to bring our country down to the level of third world nations.

Many believers understand the end times, the rapture of the church, and the anti-Christ’s reign, but believers in other nations who have experienced the slavery and destitution of communism had hoped the Lord would come for them.  We don’t know the time when we will be caught up to forever be with Him.  Only God know.  Until then we must work to save our nation, we must trust in the Lord’s plans for all his people in our Judeo-Christian society.  Hard times often bring new believers in the Lord, and as those of us who believe in the one true God, we must be ready to help those who need to know Him.

Should we be approaching the end times spoken of in Daniel, Thessalonians and Revelation, let me encourage all of those who do not know Jesus to make every effort possible to accept Him as your personal Savior, thereby avoiding being left behind to go through the many terrors during the seven years of anti-Christ’s reign.

I agonize when thinking about the many who have neglected taking care of this most important thing. I think of the many parents who have not exposed their precious children to the saving knowledge of Messiah and leading them to the Lord God Almighty.

Whatever happens in America, the Lord God has it all in His Hands.

BLOOD MONEY: Experimentation For Profit

“The concentration camps were a laboratory for the Nazis. They put the minorities and intellectuals in there because the general population wouldn’t mind losing those people. The Nazi leaders knew people needed targets for their own self-hatred.” – Wendy Hoffman, Survivor of Criminal Abuse

“We slow the progress of science today for all sorts of ethical reasons. Biomedicine could advance much faster if we abolished our rules on human experimentation in clinical trials, as Nazi researchers did.” – Paul Nitze, served under Truman, Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson


The above quote by Nitze is the reality of how the government and medical scientists think of American citizens…we are cash cows to be used and disposed of for their own experiments.  Joseph Mengele, the Angel of Death, would be proud.

In 1951, I was sitting on the kitchen table in our apartment in Chicago swinging my legs as little girls will do.  My mom was reading the very conservative Chicago Tribune newspaper, and often would read aloud to me as a child.  I distinctly remember her reading an article that stated the federal government had sprayed a flu virus over the Rogers Park area of Chicago to see how the contamination worked on the population.  It was a very small article in the back pages, and I remember my mother’s anger at reading it.  I believe Americans have been experimented on by our government, for many, many decades, and I also believed it would get far worse with Obamacare and it has.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

In 1951, a 31-year-old woman and mother of five by the name of Henrietta Lacks, died of cervical cancer in Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.  Without her or her family’s permission, portions of her cancer cells were taken by her doctor prior to her treatment, as well as after her death and during autopsy.   Throughout our history, the poorer citizens, many of whom were black, were especially targeted for experimentation.  Henrietta had two of the most virulent strains of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that cause cervical cancer.  There are over 100 different strains affecting 90% of today’s sexually active population.  Henrietta’s family did not learn of her cells being taken until over 20 years after her death.

Unlike normal cells which are extremely difficult to grow, the cancer cells from

Henrietta grew exponentially.  They are called the HeLa cell line, the first two letters from the patient’s name were used for cell lines back then.  Henrietta’s cells have helped to conquer various illnesses with new drugs, helped create the polio vaccine, uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effect, and have been bought and sold by the billions.  There are so many of them now that they would wrap around the earth three times.  They also easily contaminate other cell lines so their use is now in a sterile and controlled environment.

Henrietta’s family has never received one dime from any laboratory or Johns Hopkins in all the years since her death despite the fact that her cells were taken without the family’s knowledge, until now…

In 2013, the National Institute of Health announced it was, at long last, making good with Lacks’ family. Under a new agreement, Lack’s genome data will be accessible only to those who apply for and are granted permission. And two representatives of the Lacks family will serve on the NIH group responsible for reviewing biomedical researchers’ applications for controlled access to HeLa cells. Additionally, any researcher who uses that data will be asked to include an acknowledgement to the Lacks family in their publications.  And in 2020, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute gave a six-figure donation as reparations to the Lacks family.

There are still no laws on the books stating that any piece of your body that is removed cannot be used without your express permission.  Today, labs sell countless biopsies for various uses in cell line cultures, but there is no benefit to the patient.

Back in 1954, Dr. Chester Southam, a cancer researcher and chief of virology at Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute had a frightening thought.  What if the researchers working with HeLa cells could be infected?  He and many other scientists believed that cancer was caused by either a virus or an immune system deficiency, so Southam decided to use HeLa to test those theories.

He loaded a syringe with saline solution mixed with HeLa.  He injected millions of HeLa cells into the forearm of a leukemia patient telling her he was testing her immune system.  Within a short period of time, nodules like Henrietta’s showed on the arm.  He removed them.  He injected several other patients who had cancers to see whether or not their own immune system would fight them off.  In many cases they did, but in four they had to be removed but kept growing back, and in one they metastasized to her lymph nodes.

Southam continued injecting patients at Sloan-Kettering and James Ewing Hospitals.  It wasn’t until three Jewish doctors refused to do Southam’s protocols, citing the Nuremburg Code, that the experiments were halted.  In the ensuing media mess and trial, Southam nearly lost his medical license, and the wars about patient consent began.

Southam went on to solicit prisoners in Ohio State Penitentiary in order to inject healthy patients with HeLa.  As Rebecca Skloot, the author of, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” states, his tactics reminded her of Dr. Josef Mengele, the notorious “Angel of Death,” in Nazi Germany who conducted horrid experiments on prisoners and especially twins.

You can even order Henrietta’s cells on the web today, and we still have no proper laws governing parts of our bodies that are excised and discarded, but are not put in the biohazard garbage!

The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment

At the White House on May 16, 1997, President Clinton addressed five elderly African American men, ages 89 to 109, and the family members of others that couldn’t be present.  He apologized for one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. medical history.  In 1932, the government used 623 men as human guinea pigs in a 40-year medical experiment.  This, in itself, is bad enough, but for 40 years these black men, predominately poor and uneducated, were deliberately kept in the dark about what was happening to them.  This “experiment” continued for 20 years after the Nuremburg trials and the set of standards that came out of the trials called the Nuremburg codes.  The civilized world agreed that human beings would not be used as research animals and that doctors would never forget their first duty to heal their patients.

The United States Public Health Service (PHS) conducted this experiment (now the CDC). More than half of the 623 men had syphilis, the others, a control group, did not.  They were told they were being treated for “Bad Blood.”  The men were told they’d get free lunches, free medical care, free burial and 100 dollars. That may sound odd, but at the time burial money and free medical care were coveted.  Despite the development of penicillin in the early 40’s and the availability of it by 1944, the men were never treated.  In actuality, the “experiment” was to see what illnesses developed and how long it took the men to die.  Here is the timeline.

By the end, in 1972, 28 of the men had died of syphilis, 100 were dead of related complications, 40 of their wives had been infected, and 19 of their children had been born with congenital syphilis.  At first, they were given the choice of the medicine of that day to treat syphilis, but in such small amounts that only 3% showed any improvement.  To ensure the men would show up for potentially dangerous spinal taps, the PHS doctors misled them with a letter full of promotional hype…their “last chance for special free treatment.”  The men were also never told their bodies would be required for autopsy.  Even the Surgeon General of the U.S. participated in enticing the men to remain in the experiment by sending them certificates of appreciation after 25 years in the study.

To read about this experiment on poor uneducated blacks in our country is to become outraged at the cruelty and the inhuman tactics, not to mention the fact that they purposely lied to these men as though their lives were less important than anyone else’s life…i.e., white men.  Yet, the times were quite different, and even after the experiment, many within the medical community felt absolutely no regret.  And, what did the “experiment” succeed in doing?

On July 27, 1972, one survivor, Charlie Pollard went to see attorney Fred D. Gray who became the attorney for the plaintiffs in what became known as Pollard vs. United States of America, a $1.8 billion class action civil suit filed in federal court in Montgomery, Alabama.  Gray demanded $3 million in damages for each living participant and the heirs of the deceased.  The case never went to trial and was settled out of court in December, 1974.  The government agreed to a $10 million out-of-court settlement.  Sadly, the living participants received $37,500 in damages, the heirs of the deceased, $15,000.  Gray received nearly $1 million in legal fees for two years of hard work.  No PHS officer who had been directly involved in the study felt any contrition.

While working as a producer for the Roger Fredinburg show some years back, we interviewed attorney Fred D. Gray.  I will never forget what he said when we were told the small number of awards from the lawsuit.  He said, “How can you expect to get a fair settlement when the judge hearing the case works for the people you’re suing?”

In 1990, a survey found that 10% of black Americans believed the U.S. government created AIDS as a plot to exterminate blacks and another 20% could not rule out the possibility that this might be true.  Is it any wonder after the government’s experiment at Tuskegee?

President Clinton nominated Dr. Henry W. Foster for Surgeon General in 1995.  The mainstream media reported that Dr. Foster, an ob/gyn was present at a meeting in 1969 in which a small number of local doctors were informed of the infamous Tuskegee experiment.

Dr. Luther C. McRae said in an interview that Dr. Foster learned some details of the experiment at the 1969 meeting. Dr. McRae said that like all the doctors present that day, including himself, Dr. Foster did not express any moral qualms about the study. At the time, Dr. Foster was chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Tuskegee University.  He did not become surgeon general because of this fact.

Medical Apartheid

The experiments on black Americans began in the early days of our Republic and by the time of the War of Northern Aggression, blacks were being used, almost exclusively for experimental surgeries, and it was never consensual, but rather to expand medical knowledge.

One surgeon from Alabama, James Marion Sims, did all his experimentation with his slaves.  He took the skulls of young black children (only blacks) and opened their heads and moved the bones around.  He even decided to remove the jawbone of a slave who protested loudly, so the doctor had him tied to a barber’s chair and operated on him without anesthesia.

There have been many stellar physicians and surgeons throughout American history who have never suffered any consequences for their experiments and surgeries on people without their permission.

Prison experiments have been off limits for a number of years, but a federal panel is now considering loosening the regulations around prisoner experiments.  The history of research in prisons has been the worst of abuses.  There were experimental agents administered, men were crippled and killed.  There were even mind control experiments.

In Holmesburg Prison in Philadelphia, prisoners there were injected with Staphylococcus and Monilia, herpes, and other viruses.  Dr. Kligman was in charge and he injected men at the behest of pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies with dangerous chemicals.  These men had a type of checkerboard on their backs where different chemicals were tested.  Dr. Kligman has never been successfully sued, but rather honored.

Another Mississippi neurosurgeon, Orlando J. Andy, was doing experimentation in the 1960’s and 70’s.  He was taking institutionalized young black boys and cutting out parts of their brain.  His rationale was to find “behavior problems,” but there’s no psychologist report.  And he was not a psychologist, but a neurologist.  Also, there was no indication any of them had behavioral problems.   The University of Mississippi is very proud of their revered hero, Dr. Andy.  His medical literature never shows that he did anything untoward.

There are countless horror stories of experiments on black Americans from the beginning of our Republic, but there are also countless experiments that are done on the general population of America.  I’m not talking about conspiracy theories; I’m talking about documented proof of government experiments on the general population.

The SV-40 monkey virus contamination of the polio vaccines, the plutonium experiments during the cold war on military and others, and the fluoride deception perpetrated by the majority of towns and cities of America, are only a few of the horrors perpetrated on American citizens.

The US governments secret history of grisly experiments on both animals and humans remains hidden from most citizens.

America’s Medical Guinea Pigs, Depopulation and Eugenics [Part 1]

“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic.  I’ve never heard such nonsense talks about vaccines.  You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease.  You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.” – Dr. Michael Yeadon – Former Vice President and Chief Scientist of Pfizer

“One of the medical profession’s greatest boasts is that it eradicated smallpox through the use of the smallpox vaccine. I myself believed this claim for many years. But it simply isn’t true!” –  Dr. Vernon Coleman

“I am no longer ‘trying to dig up evidence to prove’ vaccines cause autism. There is already abundant evidence. This debate is not scientific but is political.” –   David Ayoub


A recent Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000. Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.  Medication errors account for one out of 131 outpatient deaths and one out of 854 inpatient deaths. Medication-related errors occur frequently in hospitals; not all result in actual harm, but those that do are costly. These are accidental deaths, but since tort reform, negligence and medical malpractice have risen.  Tragedies occur because of error, but there’s a far darker side.

American citizens have been used as guinea pigs for decades, resulting in hundreds of thousands of early and often painful deaths of those in the general populace and in our military.

Nuclear Guinea Pigs

From the 1940s to 1970s, American citizens were used as “nuclear guinea pigs,” to borrow a phrase from the Congressional report that lays out the record. They were deliberately exposed to dangerous radioactive substances. These experiments were scientifically, as well as ethically, questionable. Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA) pressed the Department of Energy for documents on Americans who suffered.  Link, Link

At the time, the dangers of radio-iodine were known and Markey detailed these tests which took place all over America.  Subjects included elderly people, prisoners, the terminally ill, and even babies. Ostensibly, these people, or those legally competent to act for them, had consented to the tests. But it’s hard to believe that it was truly informed consent.  These experiments were repugnant because human subjects were essentially used as guinea pigs and calibration devices.

Neither were there recommendations or medals for America’s atomic vets who were subject to over 27 nuclear tests over three months when they had been assigned to witness Operation Hardtack I, a series of nuclear tests in the Pacific.  When the blasts went off and the men covered their eyes, they could see their bones through their hands.  The National Association of Atomic Vets who suffered through these tests had higher rates of cancers and health issues.  John Wayne, Susan Hayward, and 90 other people developed cancer after filming “The Conqueror” near a nuclear testing site.

When the vast wartime factories of the Manhattan Project began producing plutonium in quantities never before seen on earth, scientists working on the top-secret bomb-building program grew apprehensive.  Fearful that plutonium might cause a cancer epidemic among workers and desperate to learn more about what it could do to the human body, the Manhattan Project’s medical doctors embarked upon an experiment in which eighteen unsuspecting patients in hospital wards throughout the country were secretly injected with the cancer-causing substance.  Most of these patients would go to their graves without ever knowing what had been done to them.

Reporter Eileen Welsome spent 10 years researching the fifty-year cover-up surrounding the plutonium injections as well as the deceitful nature of thousands of other experiments conducted on American citizens in the postwar years.  The result was her Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Plutonium Files.

Tuskegee Syphilis

In 1932, the government used 623 men as human guinea pigs in a 40-year medical experiment. This in itself is bad enough, but for 40 years these black men, predominately poor and uneducated, were deliberately kept in the dark about what was happening to them. This “experiment” continued for 20 years after the Nuremburg trials and the set of standards that came out of the trials called the Nuremburg codes. The civilized world agreed that human beings would not be used as research animals and that doctors would never forget their first duty to heal their patients.

The United States Public Health Service (PHS) (now the CDC) conducted this experiment. More than half of the 623 men had syphilis, the others, a control group, did not. They were told they were being treated for “Bad Blood.” The men were told they’d get free lunches, free medical care, free burial and 100 dollars. That may sound odd, but at the time burial money and free medical care were coveted. Despite the development of penicillin in the early 40’s and the availability of it by 1944, the men were never treated. In actuality, the “experiment” was to see what illnesses developed and how long it took the men to die.

No PHS officer who had been directly involved in the study felt any contrition.  Link

Polio Vaccine and SV40

In 2010, I wrote about the polio vaccine and its lasting effects.  In the 1960s, we had both needle and sugar cube vaccines for polio, even though polio was officially over and done with in 1959.  The vaccine was grown on Simeon monkey kidneys and contaminated with SV-40 monkey viruses which caused soft tissue cancers for those who received the vaccine. From 1954 to 1963, almost every dose of polio vaccine produced in the world was given to 98 million Americans and was contaminated with the cancer-causing virus. Despite knowing this vaccine caused cancer, the government continued giving it to Americans.

Former virologist, John Martin, MD, PhD, said, “SV-40 infection is now widespread within the human population almost certainly as a result of the polio vaccine.” This vaccine was given to millions of American and European children. SV-40 has been discovered in tumors of children never inoculated with the vaccine leading most scientists to believe it is genetically passed.

When questioned on the safety of the polio vaccine he developed, Jonas Salk said, “It is safe, and you can’t get safer than safe.”  Sadly, the polio vaccine’s growth on Simeon Monkey kidneys has caused an American cancer epidemic in baby boomers.

Ed Haslam’s book, Dr. Mary’s Monkey gives the full story along with The Virus and the Vaccine by Bookchin and Schumacher. The latter two authors reported the story in the Atlantic Monthly Magazine.

Millions of Americans are unaware that government officials and leading scientists have played Russian roulette with the health of American citizens for over a century.  The US Government has a secret history of grisly experiments.  Sadly, despite the Nuremburg Codes, these unethical medical and psychological human experiments continue today and here come the Covid-19 vaccines.

Covid-19 Vaccines

Out of dozens of drug makers, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson and Johnson are the leading vaccine producers.  Most Americans are not aware that all vaccine makers worldwide have been given a free pass from any legal prosecution regarding any deaths or injuries caused by the new vaccines.  Pfizer is still engaging in phase 3 trials for two more years, which means their covid-19 vaccine is still very much in experimental stages, even though it is widely offered to the public.

Many scientists and physicians have stated there is no real necessity for a vaccine, that the numbers of deaths from Covid, along with their skewed PCR false positive tests, are inflated to promote fear in the public allowing lockdowns, masks and the destruction and elimination of middle class small businesses.  Overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75%.  So why the vaccine?

The same thing was accomplished by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and his good buddy, our former Senator Lamar Alexander, who promoted internet taxes even on those companies who had no physical presence in your state, overriding the 1991 Supreme Court decision. Small businesses were bought out by Amazon and others and they lost the ability to survive by government’s forced implementation of 25,000 nationwide tax codes at a cost far above their yearly sales.

The ultimate goal is the total elimination of the middle class, while government and big business grow larger and stronger.

Weaponized Medicine

It is a well-known fact that Anthony Fauci denied the use of the safe and cheap 60-year-old drug Hydroxychloroquine for treatment in early diagnosis of COVID-19.  He preferred his more expensive drug, Remdesivir, along with the vaccine that he and Bill Gates promoted to end Covid-19, an untested and dangerous inoculation that will fill their personal coffers.

He also originally stated that mask wearing was unnecessary, but changed his mind and now has decided we should wear two masks to keep Covid from spreading, albeit there is no proof whatsoever that masks stop Covid.  In fact, masks actually can make you more susceptible to the virus…because we touch them, re-use them, carry them in our purses, and inundate them with countless germs that we then breathe into our lungs every time we reuse it.  And how thrilled the totalitarian dictatorial commies in our governments were when they saw how many lemmings donned the face diapers in compliance with the draconian orders.

And those astronomical death counts…!  As I’ve previously mentioned, the John Hopkins report stated that there were no more deaths in 2020 than there were in previous years.  Yes, the yearly death rate is the same.  Why?  Because in 2020, no one seemed to die of seasonal flu, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.  Every death was Covid.

Covid actually killed the ability for Americans to think, use logic and common sense.  What Covid ultimately decimated was the economy, the working middle class and millions of jobs.  It destroyed forever millions of small businesses, human connection, love and compassion. Even more barbaric was the cruelty of our elderly loved ones dying alone without family being close.

Now those same mask-wearing American lemmings are standing in line hoping and praying for an untested vaccine to be shot into their arms, not once, but twice.

Depopulation and Eugenics

Is that the ultimate goal?  It certainly seems that way when a Chinese virus was released upon the world, and five democrat governors thought nothing of putting Covid infected patients in nursing homes, ultimately killing tens of thousands more elderly with susceptible comorbidities.  One need only read Earth Summit, Agenda 21, the United Nations Programme of Action from Rio.  They’re main goal is depopulation.

And Anthony Fauci has long been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Fauci was photographed with a coterie of globalist elites in 2001 at the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy event. The unassuming government bureaucrat was present alongside such titans of globalism as Ted Turner, David Rockefeller, George Soros, and Bill Gates Sr. Records reveal that Gates Sr. was a board member of Planned Parenthood prior to the Roe v. Wade 1973 Supreme Court decision, and Bill Gates himself said in a video clip that his father was the “head of Planned Parenthood.”

Bill Gates believes we need a vaccine to stop the spread of Covid-19…even though 98% of the people who contract Covid recover…Robert Kennedy, Jr. has made it clear what he thinks of Bill Gates and his devastating vaccine results in foreign countries.

The origin of the Gates Foundation is that both his father’s foundation and his own foundation were merged into the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Population control was very much a core facet of both foundations. Both father and son are strong eugenicists.  Their beliefs are much like those of Margaret Sanger…only healthy seed must be sown.

The eugenics movement took root in the United States in the early 1900‘s, led by Charles Davenport (1866-1944), a prominent biologist, and Harry Laughlin, a former teacher and principal interested in breeding.  It became a popular social movement that peaked in the 1920s and 30s but was perused and used by the Nazis. During this period, the American Eugenics Society was founded, in addition to many local societies and groups around the country (PBS 1998).  Members competed in “fitter family” and “better baby” competitions at fairs and exhibitions. Movies and books promoting eugenic principles were popular. A film called The Black Stork (1917), based on a true story, depicted as heroic a doctor that allowed a syphilitic infant to die after convincing the child’s parents that it was better to spare society one more outcast.

The eugenics movement in the US quickly focused on eliminating negative traits just like Margaret Sanger’s hatred of black Americans.  “Undesirable” traits were concentrated in poor, uneducated, and minority populations. In an attempt to prevent these groups from propagating, eugenicists helped drive legislation for their forced sterilization (Norrgard 2008). The first state to enact a sterilization law was Indiana in 1907, quickly followed by California and 28 other states by 1931 (Lombardo n.d.). These laws resulted in the forced sterilization of over 64,000 people in the United States.

At first, sterilization efforts focused on the disabled but later grew to include people whose only “crime” was poverty. These sterilization programs found legal support in the Supreme Court. In Buck v. Bell (1927), the state of Virginia sought to sterilize Carrie Buck for promiscuity as evidenced by her giving birth to a baby out of wedlock (some suggest she was raped). In ruling against Buck, Supreme Court Justice Wendell Holmes opined, “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.  Three generations of imbeciles are enough” (Black 2003). This decision legitimized the various sterilization laws in the United States.

In particular, California’s program was so robust that the Nazi’s turned to California for advice in perfecting their own efforts. Hitler proudly admitted to following the laws of several American states that allowed for the prevention of reproduction of the “unfit” (Black 2003).

The US eugenics movement began to lose power in the 1940s and was completely discredited following the horrors of Nazi Germany. With modern advances in genetic testing, it is important to keep America’s eugenics history in mind. Yet, can we avoid repeating this dark chapter, if so many in our country don’t know about it?

As did Sanger, Gates believes in the eugenicist Thomas Malthus’s idea that the sustainability of the world’s resources is completely dependent upon maintaining population control. Ironically, Gates believes that improving health care, primarily through vaccinations, will accomplish this.

Conclusion

In part two we’ll discuss the many deaths and disabilities already evident from the unnecessary Operation Warp Speed Covid vaccines.

Science, Politics, and COVID: Will Truth Prevail?

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on February 18, 2021, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Phoenix, Arizona.


The COVID pandemic has been a tragedy, no doubt. But it has exposed profound issues in America that threaten the principles of freedom and order that we Americans often take for granted.

First, I have been shocked at the unprecedented exertion of power by the government since last March—issuing unilateral decrees, ordering the closure of businesses, churches, and schools, restricting personal movement, mandating behavior, and suspending indefinitely basic freedoms. Second, I was and remain stunned—almost frightened—at the acquiescence of the American people to such destructive, arbitrary, and wholly unscientific rules, restrictions, and mandates.

The pandemic also brought to the forefront things we have known existed and have tolerated for years: media bias, the decline of academic freedom on campuses, the heavy hand of Big Tech, and—now more obviously than ever—the politicization of science. Ultimately, the freedom of Americans to seek and state what they believe to be the truth is at risk.

Let me say at the outset that I, like all of us, acknowledge that the consequences of the COVID pandemic and its management have been enormous. Over 500,000 American deaths have been attributed to the virus; more will follow. Even after almost a year, the pandemic still paralyzes our country. And despite all efforts, there has been an undeniable failure to stop cases from escalating and to prevent hospitalizations and deaths.

But there is also an unacknowledged reality: almost every state and major city in the U.S., with a handful of exceptions, have implemented severe restrictions for many months, including closures of businesses and in-person schools, mobility restrictions and curfews, quarantines, limits on group gatherings, and mask mandates dating back to at least last summer. And despite any myths to the contrary, social mobility tracking of Americans and data from Gallup, YouGov, the COVID-19 Consortium, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have all shown significant reductions of movement as well as a consistently high percentage of mask-wearing since the late summer, similar to the extent seen in Western Europe and approaching the extent seen in Asia.

With what results?

All legitimate policy scholars today should be reexamining the policies that have severely harmed America’s children and families, while failing to save the elderly. Numerous studies, including one from Stanford University’s infectious disease scientists and epidemiologists Benavid, Oh, Bhattacharya, and Ioannides have shown that the mitigating impact of the extraordinary measures used in almost every state was small at best—and usually harmful. President Biden himself openly admitted the lack of efficacy of these measures in his January 22 speech to the nation: “There is nothing we can do,” he said, “to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

Bizarrely, though, many want to blame those who opposed lockdowns and mandates for the failure of the very lockdowns and mandates that were widely implemented.

Besides their limited value in containing the virus, lockdown policies have been extraordinarily harmful. The harms to children of suspending in-person schooling are dramatic, including poor learning, school dropouts, social isolation, and suicidal ideation, most of which are far worse for lower income groups. A recent study confirms that up to 78 percent of cancers were never detected due to missed screening over a three-month period. If one extrapolates to the entire country, 750,000 to over a million new cancer cases over a nine-month period will have gone undetected. That health disaster adds to missed critical surgeries, delayed presentations of pediatric illnesses, heart attack and stroke patients too afraid to go to the hospital, and others—all well documented.

Beyond hospital care, the CDC reported four-fold increases in depression, three-fold increases in anxiety symptoms, and a doubling of suicidal ideation, particularly among young adults after the first few months of lockdowns, echoing American Medical Association reports of drug overdoses and suicides. Domestic and child abuse have been skyrocketing due to the isolation and loss of jobs. Given that many schools have been closed, hundreds of thousands of abuse cases have gone unreported, since schools are commonly where abuse is noticed. Finally, the unemployment shock from lockdowns, according to a recent National Bureau of Economic Research study, will generate a three percent increase in the mortality rate and a 0.5 percent drop in life expectancy over the next 15 years, disproportionately affecting African-Americans and women. That translates into what the study refers to as a “staggering” 890,000 additional U.S. deaths.

We know we have not yet seen the full extent of the damage from the lockdowns, because the effects will continue to be felt for decades. Perhaps that is why lockdowns were not recommended in previous pandemic response analyses, even for diseases with far higher death rates.

To determine the best path forward, shouldn’t policymakers objectively consider the impact both of the virus and of anti-virus policies to date? This points to the importance of health policy, my own particular field, which requires a broader scope than that of epidemiologists and basic scientists. In the case of COVID, it requires taking into account the fact that lockdowns and other significant restrictions on individuals have been extraordinarily harmful—even deadly—especially for the working class and the poor.

Optimistically, we should be seeing the light at the end of the long tunnel with the rollout of vaccines, now being administered at a rate of one million to 1.5 million per day. On the other hand, using logic that would appeal to Lewis Carroll’s Mad Hatter, in many states the vaccines were initially administered more frequently to healthier and younger people than to those at greatest risk from the virus. The argument was made that children should be among the first to be vaccinated, although children are at extremely low risk from the virus and are proven not to be significant spreaders to adults. Likewise, we heard the Kafka-esque idea promoted that teachers must be vaccinated before teaching in person, when schools are one of the lowest risk environments and the vast majority of teachers are not high risk.

Worse, we hear so-called experts on TV warning that social distancing, masks, and other restrictions will still be necessary after people are vaccinated! All indications are that those in power have no intention of allowing Americans to live normally—which for Americans means to live freely—again.

And sadly, just as in Galileo’s time, the root of our problem lies in “the experts” and vested academic interests. At many universities—which are supposed to be America’s centers for critical thinking—those with views contrary to those of “the experts” currently in power find themselves intimidated. Many have become afraid to speak up.

But the suppression of academic freedom is not the extent of the problem on America’s campuses.

To take Stanford, where I work, as an example, some professors have resorted to toxic smears in opinion pieces and organized rebukes aimed at those of us who criticized the failed health policies of the past year and who dared to serve our country under a president they despised—the latter apparently being the ultimate transgression.

Defamatory attacks with malicious intent based on straw-man arguments and out-of-context distortions are not acceptable in American society, let alone in our universities. There has been an attempt to intimidate and discredit me using falsifications and misrepresentations. This violates Stanford’s Code of Conduct, damages the Stanford name, and abuses the trust that parents and society place in educators.

It is understandable that most Stanford professors are not experts in the field of health policy and are ignorant of the data about the COVID pandemic. But that does not excuse the fact that some called recommendations that I made “falsehoods and misrepresentations of science.” That was a lie, and no matter how often lies are repeated by politically-driven accusers, and regardless of how often those lies are echoed in biased media, lies will never be true.

We all must pray to God that the infamous claim attributed to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels—“A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth”—never becomes operative in the United States of America.

All of the policies I recommended to President Trump were designed to reduce both the spread of the virus to the most vulnerable and the economic, health, and social harms of anti-COVID policies for those impacted the most—small businesses, the working class, and the poor. I was one of the first to push for increasing protections for those most at risk, particularly the elderly. At the same time, almost a year ago, I recognized that we must also consider the enormous harms to physical and mental health, as well as the deaths attributable to the draconian policies implemented to contain the infection. That is the goal of public health policy—to minimize all harms, not simply to stop a virus at all costs.

The claim in a recent Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) opinion piece by three Stanford professors that “nearly all public health experts were concerned that [Scott Atlas’s] recommendations could lead to tens of thousands (or more) of unnecessary deaths in the U.S. alone” is patently false and absurd on its face. As pointed out by Dr. Joel Zinberg in National Review, the Great Barrington Declaration—a proposal co-authored by medical scientists and epidemiologists from Stanford, Harvard, and Oxford—“is closer to the one condemned in the JAMA article than anything Atlas said.” Yet the Great Barrington Declaration has already been signed by over 50,000 medical and public health practitioners.

When critics display such ignorance about the scope of views held by experts, it exposes their bias and disqualifies their authority on these issues. Indeed, it is almost beyond parody that these same critics wrote that “professionalism demands honesty about what [experts] know and do not know.”

I have explained the fact that younger people have little risk from this infection, and I have explained the biological fact of herd immunity—just like Harvard epidemiologist Katherine Yih did. That is very different from proposing that people be deliberately exposed and infected—which I have never suggested, although I have been accused of doing so.

I have also been accused of “argu[ing] that many public health orders aimed at increasing social distancing could be forgone without ill effects.” To the contrary, I have repeatedly called for mitigation measures, including extra sanitization, social distancing, masks, group limits, testing, and other increased protections to limit the spread and damage from the coronavirus. I explicitly called for augmenting protection of those at risk—in dozens of on-the-record presentations, interviews, and written pieces.

My accusers have ignored my explicit, emphatic public denials about supporting the spread of the infection unchecked to achieve herd immunity—denials quoted widely in the media. Perhaps this is because my views are not the real object of their criticism. Perhaps it is because their true motive is to “cancel” anyone who accepted the call to serve America in the Trump administration.

For many months, I have been vilified after calling for opening in-person schools—in line with Harvard Professors Martin Kulldorf and Katherine Yih and Stanford Professor Jay Bhattacharya—but my policy recommendation has been corroborated repeatedly by the literature. The compelling case to open schools is now admitted even in publications like The Atlantic, which has noted: “Research from around the world has, since the beginning of the pandemic, indicated that people under 18, and especially younger kids, are less susceptible to infection, less likely to experience severe symptoms, and far less likely to be hospitalized or die.” The subhead of the article was even clearer: “We’ve known for months that young children are less susceptible to serious infection and less likely to transmit the coronavirus.”

When the JAMA accusers wrote that I “disputed the need for masks,” they misrepresented my words. My advice on mask usage has been consistent: “Wear a mask when you cannot socially distance.” At the time, this matched the published recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO). This past December, the WHO modified its recommendation: “In areas where the virus is circulating, masks should be worn when you’re in crowded settings, where you can’t be at least one meter [roughly three feet] from others, and in rooms with poor or unknown ventilation”—in other words, not at all times by everyone. This also matches the recommendation of the National Institutes of Health document Prevention and Prophylaxis of SARS-CoV-2 Infection: “When consistent distancing is not possible, face coverings may further reduce the spread of infectious droplets from individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection to others.”

Regarding universal masks, 38 states have implemented mask mandates, most of them since at least the summer, with almost all the rest having mandates in their major cities. Widespread, general population mask usage has shown little empirical utility in terms of preventing cases, even though citing or describing evidence against their utility has been censored. Denmark also performed a randomized controlled study that showed that widespread mask usage had only minimal impact.

This is the reality: those who insist that universal mask usage has absolutely proven effective at controlling the spread of the COVID virus and is universally recommended according to “the science” are deliberately ignoring the evidence to the contrary. It is they who are propagating false and misleading information.

Those who say it is unethical, even dangerous, to question broad population mask mandates must also explain why many top infectious disease scientists and public health organizations question the efficacy of general population masking. Tom Jefferson and Carl Heneghan of the University of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, for instance, wrote that “despite two decades of pandemic preparedness, there is considerable uncertainty as to the value of wearing masks.” Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra Gupta says there is no need for masks unless one is elderly or high risk. Stanford’s Jay Bhattacharya has said that “mask mandates are not supported by the scientific data. . . . There is no scientific evidence that mask mandates work to slow the spread of the disease.”

Throughout this pandemic, the WHO’s “Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19” has included the following statement: “At present, there is no direct evidence (from studies on COVID-19 and in healthy people in the community) on the effectiveness of universal masking of healthy people in the community to prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.” The CDC, in a review of influenza pandemics in May 2020, “did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.” And until the WHO removed it on October 21, 2020—soon after Twitter censored a tweet of mine highlighting the quote—the WHO had published the fact that “the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider.”

My advice on masks all along has been based on scientific data and matched the advice of many of the top scientists and public health organizations throughout the world.

At this point, one could make a reasonable case that those who continue to push societal restrictions without acknowledging their failures and the serious harms they caused are themselves putting forth dangerous misinformation. Despite that, I will not call for their official rebuke or punishment. I will not try to cancel them. I will not try to extinguish their opinions. And I will not lie to distort their words and defame them. To do so would repeat the shameful stifling of discourse that is critical to educating the public and arriving at the scientific truths we desperately need.

If this shameful behavior continues, university mottos like Harvard’s “Truth,” Stanford’s “The Winds of Freedom Blow,” and Yale’s “Light and Truth” will need major revision.

Big Tech has piled on with its own heavy hand to help eliminate discussion of conflicting evidence. Without permitting open debate and admission of errors, we might never be able to respond effectively to any future crisis. Indeed, open debate should be more than permitted—it should be encouraged.

As a health policy scholar for over 15 years and as a professor at elite universities for 30 years, I am shocked and dismayed that so many faculty members at these universities are now dangerously intolerant of opinions contrary to their favored narrative. Some even go further, distorting and misrepresenting words to delegitimize and even punish those of us willing to serve the country in the administration of a president they loathe. It is their own behavior, to quote the Stanford professors who have attacked me, that “violates the core values of [Stanford] faculty and the expectations under the Stanford Code of Conduct, which states that we all ‘are responsible for sustaining the high ethical standards of this institution.’” In addition to violating standards of ethical behavior among colleagues, this behavior falls short of simple human decency.

If academic leaders fail to renounce such unethical conduct, increasing numbers of academics will be unwilling to serve their country in contentious times. As educators, as parents, as fellow citizens, that would be the worst possible legacy to leave to our children.

I also fear that the idea of science as a search for truth—a search utilizing the empirical scientific method—has been seriously damaged. Even the world’s leading scientific journals—The Lancet, New England Journal of MedicineScience, and Nature—have been contaminated by politics. What is more concerning, many in the public and in the scientific community have become fatigued by the arguments—and fatigue will allow fallacy to triumph over truth.

With social media acting as the arbiter of allowable discussion, and with continued censorship and cancellation of those with views challenging the “accepted narrative,” the United States is on the verge of losing its cherished freedoms. It is not at all clear whether our democratic republic will survive—but it is clear it will not survive unless more people begin to step up in defense of freedom of thought and speech.
