Americans Conspiracy Fact and Theory DECEPTION democracy is a scam Donald Trump elections entitled federal agencies Full Disclosure Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden liars in suits LIES Mainstream media Obey People Politicians rottenness of conduct rulers ruling class slaves slaves suggestion box tactics Thomas Jefferson voters voting booths

“Choose Your Liar” Democracy

This article was originally published by James Bovard at The American Institute for Economic Research. 

The final weeks of a presidential campaign are aome of the best opportunities to view political perfidy in spectacular colors. While the media lectures Americans about their civic duty to vote to save the nation, the candidates continue conniving nonstop with no respect for the facts or decency.

After the election is settled, the media and the political establishment will announce “the system worked” and Americans must again respect and obey their rulers (unless Trump is re-elected, of course).

Politicians have mandated warning labels for almost everything except voting booths. Federal agencies require full disclosure of risks for everything from mortgages to volunteering for medical experiments. People are entitled to far more information when testing baldness cures than when casting votes that could lead to war.

Hopefully, Americans will not be as gullible after the election as many are before casting their ballot. Dishonesty is the distinguishing trait of the political class, going all the way back to ancient Athens and the satirical plays of Aristophanes. In 1799, Thomas Jefferson observed, “Whenever a man casts a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct.”

A successful politician is often merely someone who bamboozled more voters than the other liar running for office. Political campaigns rely on deception because, as economist John Burnheim explained, “Overwhelming pressures to lie, to pretend, to conceal… are always present when the object to be sold is intangible and its properties unverifiable until long after the time when the decision to buy can be reversed.”

Lying has long been part of presidents’ job description: the names of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon practically became synonyms for deceit. Former President George W. Bush is being rehabilitated by the media nowadays. But Bush made “232 false statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and another 28 false statements about Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda,” as the Center for Public Integrity reported. Bush’s determination to dishonestly drag America into another Middle East war led to the deaths of more than 4,000 American troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

President Barack Obama received sainthood even before his election and he retained his halo even though he falsely promised dozens of times that people could keep their doctor after Obamacare’s decrees took effect. Obama campaigned in 2008 on a peace platform and then bombed seven nations. Obama promised “no more illegal wiretapping” but he unleashed the National Security Administration to target any American “searching the web for suspicious stuff.”

The 2016 presidential race was a landmark: never before had American voters been obliged to choose between two such widely despised candidates. Routine deceit by both candidates helped make “post-truth” the 2016 word of the year according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

The 2020 race is also deluging voters with near-record levels of malarkey. Joe Biden denied referring to American soldiers as “stupid bastards” (despite a video of his spiel), denies that his son Hunter has done anything wrong (despite the pesky laptop emails), and exaggerated the Covid death toll a hundredfold. Trump has ludicrously portrayed his pandemic response as faultless, wildly exaggerates the economic achievements of his administration, and perennially denies the damage inflicted here by his trade wars. The one certainty is that the 2020 election will not be won by an honest man.

If a new president is elected next month, the media will insist that “this time is different” and that Americans can safely trust the White House again. In reality, Election Day merely marks a brief intermission between campaigning lies and governing lies. Yet, if Biden wins, Americans will be encouraged to pretend that election victories expunge the sins – or at least the character defects – of triumphant politicians. Winners supposedly deserve a “honeymoon” where people pretend they are trustworthy enough to enact new laws and launch ruinous new federal programs.

But nothing happens after Election Day to make politicians less venal. Presidents and members of Congress take oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution. But, as former U.S. senator Bob Kerrey explained in 2013, “The problem is, the second your hand comes off the Bible, you become an asshole.” When elected officials scorn the Constitution, politics becomes little more than promising and pilfering.

America is increasingly a “Garbage In, Garbage Out” democracy. Politicians dupe citizens and then invoke deluded votes to sanctify and stretch their power. In the post-9/11 era, politicians treat Americans like medical orderlies treat Alzheimer’s patients, telling them anything that will keep them subdued. It doesn’t matter what untruths the people are fed because they will surely forget them.

Lies subvert democracy by crippling citizens’ ability to rein in government. As Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco and mentor for Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, said, “In politics, a lie unanswered becomes truth within 24 hours.” Any lie accepted by a sufficient number of ignorant voters becomes a political truth.

Disregarding political lies paves the way for official crimes. As former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg declared, “When we tolerate dishonesty, we get criminality.” If elected politicians can lie and cover up their actions, then how can any reasonable person not expect to be oppressed?

Politicians assure that voters’ apparent consent is irrevocable regardless of how many lies permeated election campaigns. But there is no such thing as retroactive self-government. Belatedly exposing political lies does nothing to resurrect lost freedoms.

Deceiving voters is as much a violation of their rights as barring them from the polling booth. Only if we assume that people consent to be lied to can pervasive political lies be reconciled with democracy. And if people consent to deceit, elections become little more than patients choosing who will inject their sedatives.

President Obama, in his January 2017 farewell address, criticized Americans who “blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them.” By Obama’s standard, the perpetual perfidy of the political class would justify condemning voters almost regardless of how they cast their ballots. Obama also condemned people who did not vote. Obama thereby created a no-win situation – except for politicians.

Obama, in his 2016 speech to the Democratic National Convention, also declared, “We do not look to be ruled.” Regardless of the irony of a heavy-handed ruler tossing out that line, it rings true for tens of millions of Americans who make their own liberty their supreme political value.

In the short run, the political game is rigged so that winners capture far more power than many, if not most, Americans would willingly cede to them and vastly more than the Constitution permits. But citizens can reduce the hazards they face by remembering that winning votes never redeemed a rascal. The winner of next month’s presidential election will be a clear and present danger to Americans’ rights and liberties regardless of his margin of victory.

Amy coney barrett Birth Control Deterred hearing Intelwars People richard blumenthal

Democratic senator warns Amy Coney Barrett that people may be deterred from using birth control after hearing her answers

Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D) warned U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to choose her answers carefully during his line of questioning, telling the judge that there may be people watching who may “be deterred from using contraceptives or may feel fear that it may be banned” if she is appointed to the high court.

What are the details?

On her third day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Blumenthal asked Barrett to share her views on high-profile cases decided by the Supreme Court in the past, namely Brown v. Board of Education, Loving v. Virginia, and Griswold v. Connecticut.

National Review noted that “the Court ruled in those cases that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional, laws banning interracial marriage were unconstitutional and that the right of married couples to buy and use contraceptives without government restriction was protected by the constitution, respectively.”

The Democrat from Connecticut pointed out that “Griswold involves a ban on contraception,” before pressing Barrett.

“I’m asking your legal position. I want you to keep in mind how many people are listening and watching because they may take a message from what you say,” he said.

“They may see what you say and be deterred from using contraceptives,” he continued, “or may feel fear that it may be banned.”

The judge answered, “Well, Senator Blumenthal, the position that I’ve taken is whether a question is easy or hard that I can’t offer an answer to it, and I would be surprised if people were afraid that birth control is about to be criminalized because I said to…”

“You might be surprised,” Blumenthal interrupted, before citing the answers given by previous justices who stated during their confirmation hearings that they agreed with the Griswold decision.

Blumenthal added, “I’m stunned that you’re not willing to say an unequivocal ‘yes, it was correctly decided, I would have been in the majority,'” before he asked her about another case.

How did Barrett respond?

“Every time you ask me a question about whether a case was correctly decided or not I cannot answer that question because I cannot suggest agreement or disagreement with precedents of the Supreme Court,” Barrett replied. “All of those precedents bind me now as a Seventh Circuit Judge and were I to be confirmed I would be responsible for applying the law of stare decisis to all of them.”

After the senator pushed her further, Barrett responded, “I’m not even expressing a view in disagreement.”

She told Blumenthal, “You’re pushing me to try to violate the judicial Canons of ethics and to offer advisory opinions and I won’t do that.”

You can watch Blumenthal’s entire line of questioning below. The section detailed in this story begins at the 6:40 mark:

Ads Bans Big Pharma bill gates censoring Censorship DISINFORMATION Facebook forced vaccines free speech Headline News Intelwars LIES Mainstream media mandatory MISINFORMATION official narrative People posts propaganda Social Media Vaccination

Censorship: Facebook Bans Anti-Vaccine Ads Ahead of COVID Vaccine Rollout

Facebook announced on Tuesday that the social media giant will ban all ads encouraging people to avoid vaccination. Facebook is now censoring factual information on the adverse health and side effects of getting vaccinated.

Anyone paying attention knows that there will be a COVID-19 vaccine, and it will, for all intents and purposes, be mandated for all and distributed by the military. This is not news to most, however, the propaganda campaign has begun, and Facebook will assist the tyrants with censorship.

“Our goal is to help messages about the safety and efficacy of vaccines reach a broad group of people while prohibiting ads with misinformation that could harm public health efforts,” Facebook’s head of health initiatives, Kang-Xing Jin, said in a blog post, according to the Hill.We don’t want these ads on our platform.”

The truth is, doctors and others have expressed concerns about vaccine safety, and this is not new. But the push to make sure everyone is vaccinated is new. So is the blatant censorship. As with other tightenings on free speech, enforcing the new ban on anti-vaccination ads will be crucial.

Trump: “The Military Is Ready To Deliver A Vaccine”

Facebook has chosen sides.  They did a long time ago. They are not on the side of the people and will do what is necessary to see the elitists rollout the New World Order.

The military is still set to distribute a vaccine to all 324 million Americans and this censorship is part of the propaganda campaign pushed by Bill Gates to attempt to manipulate people into getting vaccinated.

Medical Journal: Get The COVID-19 Vaccine, Or Be Punished HARSHLY

According to the report by TheHill, Tuesday’s policy update will not affect user-generated content about vaccines, including the private Facebook groups and Instagram pages. So far, Facebook claims they will allow critics of vaccination the free speech that was already their birthright.

4 million acres August complex fire Burned Businesses California damages devastation firefighters Fires Glass fire Headline News homes lost Intelwars Jonathan Cox killed people lihtning People smoke structures burned

A Record: 4 Million Acres Burned In California

A record 4 million acres have burned in California this year. Fire officials said that more than 8,200 fires have consumed more than double the previous record.

The exact amount of land burned is still unknown, and rising, however, annual statistics from the department dating to 1987 show that 2020 has more than doubled the previous record.  Firefighters, totaling more than 20,000, some coming from as far away as Israel, have responded to scores of major fires across the state this year. Thirty-one people have died in blazes in so far this year.

The largest, most destructive blazes have occurred since mid-August, when thousands of lightning strikes sparked dozens of fires in Northern California, including the largest wildfire in state history, the nearly 1 million-acre August Complex fire, which is burning across six counties.

Cal Fire said Sunday that the fire has killed one person and destroyed 159 structures. It was 51 percent contained. –NBC News

The Glass fire also created a major problem for those north of San Francisco. Thousands of firefighters continue battling the fire that roared through wine country September 27.  More than 36,000 people remain under mandatory evacuation orders in Sonoma and Napa counties Sunday, Cal Fire Deputy Chief Jonathan Cox said. As 12 teams continued surveying damage from the Glass Fire, the number of homes and businesses that have been destroyed rose to 564, Cox said. The teams have surveyed about 50 percent of the area, he said.

These fires have been devastating to those living in California and the smoke has traveled far. The grey smoky haze coating much of the west – from Portland, Oregon, to Santa Barbara, California, has created hazardous conditions that public health officials are concerned will have an impact even after the smoke clears. Researchers at Stanford University attributed roughly up to 3,000 additional deaths in California to just one month of the wildfire smoke, especially for at-risk or elderly people, according to The Guardian.

agenda analysts Bank of America Cases Coronavirus coverage COVID-19 Disease Emergency Preparedness Europe Fear Forecasting Headline News Humanity Intelwars LIES madrid Mainstream media New World Order New York City outbreaks panic People plandemic Politicians scamdemic second lockdown SLAVERY UNITED KINGDOM Vaccine wake up

Spain Expands Lockdowns As “Record Surge” In Cases Reported

After a record surge in cases of COVID-19 have been reported, Madrid, Spain expands its lockdown to more than 1 million people in an effort to stop the “second wave.” It is here, and we are being backed into a corner.

Yesterday, the Financial Times published a deep dive comparing Madrid’s handling of the virus to New York City’s. It appears some Bank of America analysts have followed that up with a chart comparing the various ‘waves’ of outbreaks, Sputnik reported.

The mainstream media continues to report on the surge in coronavirus cases, even though this “disease” is not nearly as deadly as the flu, by their own statistics. Yet, we are supposed to somehow buy into a second lockdown. Pay attention to what mainstream media focuses on and you will get an idea of what the ruling class has in store for us.  It looks like they are ginning up the fear for a second lockdown, and it could happen as soon as October.

They are attempting to manufacture your consent to be screwed over once again and using fear to do it.  Please don’t fall for it:

Within Europe, both the UK and the EU’s biggest economies are all struggling to curb spiking coronavirus cases and mounting hospitalization numbers without resorting to full-scale lockdowns like they did back in the spring. Yesterday, both the UK and France reported record-breaking tallies of new cases.

Now, Europe’s biggest economies are struggling to bring the coronavirus back under control as hospitalizations and newly confirmed cases soar. After announcing new curbs earlier this month, Madrid’s local government is expected to decide on Friday whether to expand restrictions on movement within the city of Madrid and its suburbs, with nearly 40% of ICU beds in the region around the Spanish capital filled with COVID-19 patients. France earlier this week just expanded restrictions in and around Marseilles.

Poland, which has continued to report record after record in terms of new cases, is expected to introduce new restrictions next week to combat the virus.ZeroHedge

If you think this won’t be coming back to the United States, think again. People willingly locked themselves in their homes the first time, and far too many have yet to wake up to the reality of the New World Order bein rolled out under the film of this scamdemic hoax.

Isreal has also tightened their second lockdown restrictions imposed late last week. Already, starting last week, articles have surfaced declaring the US. needs to lock down again as cases continue to soar (using bullshit tests, of course.) If you are allergic to propaganda, refrain from reading the following article, written by Foreign Affairs:

America Needs To Lockdown Again

Others say that the U.S. failed to implement the lockdown effectively, so another one will be needed. A second lockdown “must be implemented and enforced.”

Keep your eyes and ears open, stay alert, continue to prepare, and don’t live in fear.  We know there’s no reason for another lockdown, but those pushing the agenda of the elites on the world are making sure we at least respect another one.  Whether or not we comply and go along with this tyrannical enslavement of humanity will be up to us.

2020 Americans ammunition civil unrest Data firearm retailers foundation gun ownership gun rights gun sales rise Headline News Intelwars Lawrence G. Keane lead live free People personal responsibility Preparedness rigged system Self-Defense social unrest societal upheaval Statistics survey

Americans Sense Something Is Wrong: Gun Sales Up 72%

Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase.  Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020. “This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community,” said Lawrence G. Keane, a senior vice president at the foundation. “These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership. That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Mr. Keane said.

With social upheaval, political overreach and power grabs, and any number of other issues 2020 has thrown at the public, Americans appear to at least somewhat be willing to fight for their right to live freely.

The foundation’s current surveys revealed that 58% of all firearm purchases were among Black men and women, the largest increase of any demographic group. Women comprised 40% of first-time gun purchasers. Retailers also noted that they are seeing a 95% increase in firearm sales and a 139% increase in ammunition sales over the same period in 2019. –the The Washington Post

The general consensus seems to be that with four months left in 2020, we have yet to see the true scope and depravity of the elites who claim to own everyone and everything. But, lead is one of my personal favorites when it comes to storing metals.

Campus Children cia torture Colleges control Emergency Preparedness enslavement Fall classes Headline News indoctrination camps Intelwars lack of testing Michael Christakis monitor Nazi Germany North Korea parties People plandemic quarantine Sarah Scalese scamdemic schools social distancing teach kids to obey test trace

Some College Campuses Will Look Like Nazi Germany This Autumn

As children and young adults gear up to get back to school this autumn, college campuses that are open will be imposing varying degrees of draconian testing on the students.

Students enrolled at New York’s public colleges must first pass a COVID-19 test in order to get access to campus in a bid to prevent the spread of the contagious virus.  Before setting foot on campus, a student must submit to the highly inaccurate (different studies show the PCR tests give a 50-80% false-positive rate) test.

“Given reported delays for COVID-19 test results and lack of testing availability in some areas, all University at Albany students should be tested as soon as possible in order to have results prior to the beginning of fall classes,” Michael Christakis, vice president of student affairs, said in a “Dear Great Dane” letter to students, according to a report by the New York Post. 

“If a student living on campus fails to provide the University proof of a negative test or NYS Department of Health clearance document (for students who have had documented COVID-19) before their arrival on campus, they will not be permitted to check in to their residence hall or apartment,” warned Christakis. “Until students have a negative test result in hand, they should remain at home.”

According to USA Today, The University of Texas at Austin, for example, has banned parties, both on campus and off, saying they put “the health and safety of our community at risk and raise anxiety levels.” Tulane University in New Orleans threatened suspension or expulsion for students who throw or attend parties that have more than 15 people and asked students to monitor and report on the behavior of their peers.

On Thursday, Syracuse University, which had suspended a fraternity for violating social distancing rules in the spring, said it had also suspended a group of students for “knowingly violating quarantine orders,” spokeswoman Sarah Scalese said.  Most college campuses said throwing a party with 30 to 40 people could be viewed as endangerment to the community.

Before sending your child or teenager back to school, it may do you some good to understand the new “COVID” policies of the school.  Some could look like schools in North Korea or Nazi Germany thanks to the scamdemic.

[WATCH] Social Distancing is a “CIA Protocol” That Amounts To Torture

Schools seem hellbent on the psychological torture of children this year, so be aware of what they could be subjected to during the Federal Reserve’s attempted takeover of the world.

Now Americans Are Rioting Over Mini-Golf And Bagels

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

Have you noticed that people all over the country are starting to completely flip out for little to no reason?  People are becoming violently angry even over very trivial matters, and you never know when someone might erupt.  One moment you could be talking to a seemingly mild-mannered middle-aged woman, and the next moment she could transform into a raging “Karen”.

And of course, I am not singling out women in particular, because most of the people that have been involved in the violent riots that we have seen around the nation in recent weeks have been men.  People of all ages and backgrounds are suddenly going completely nuts, and what we have experienced so far is just the beginning.

The mainstream media deserves a lot of the blame for this.  Over and over they keep telling us that the riots that are happening in our major cities each night are “peaceful”, but everyone can see that they are not.  In Portland, protesters have been regularly firing projectiles, vandalizing buildings, and setting fires, and they keep getting away with it.  Other than Fox News, the major news outlets in this country have put their full stamp of approval on what these rioters are doing, and that sends a very dangerous signal to everyone else.

If it is perfectly acceptable for rioters to attack police officers, destroy buildings and commit other acts of violence because they are “offended” by the system, then a lot of other young people out there are going to give themselves permission to violently erupt when they are “offended” by something as well.

For example, there was just an incident in Tennessee where hundreds of teens started going on a violent rampage at a mini-golf center because “the game machines ate their cash”

A Tennessee mini-golf center erupted in chaos Saturday night when 300 to 400 teenagers began terrorizing staffers and smashing up the premises because the game machines ate their cash, Jam Press reported.

The riotous scene at Putt-Putt Fun Center, at Golf and Games Family Park in Memphis, was caught on camera by an alarmed bystander and shows the violent teens go berserk and throw various heavy objects at staff because they didn’t issue the kids a refund.

To really get a feel for this incident you need to see some video footage, and someone posted a short clip of the chaos on Twitter right here.

100 years ago, young people in America never would have conducted themselves in such a manner, and this is yet more evidence of how dramatically our culture has decayed.

Over on the east coast, three male “Karens” completely freaked out and caused 13,000 dollars in damage to a bagel shop when they were told that they had arrived too late to get food

Footage released by police shows the suspects smashing up The Brothers Deli & Bagel in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn at around 5.30pm on Friday after workers had packed up and were waiting for their deliver man to bring the bikes inside.

The video shared Tuesday shows the would-be customers knocking drinks off a shelf, flipping over snacks, and turning tables after seemingly realizing they were too late to buy food.

In a civilized society, people resolve their differences calmly and peacefully, but the truth is that we are becoming less civilized with each passing day.

For many people, resorting to violence is becoming option number one, and talking things out rationally is way down the list.

Down in South Florida, nobody is quite sure why a bunch of people in bathing suits started “pummeling each other” at a local casino, but it ended up making headlines all over the globe…

Three people were arrested and several more were banned from a South Florida casino after they were filmed in a violent brawl.

Video on social media shows several individuals, wearing bathing suits, while pummeling each other inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood on Friday.

At this point, video of the brawl has been seen more than four million times, and I suppose that should not come as a surprise to any of us.

As I was writing this article, several lines penned by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament came to mind…

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Everywhere you look, people are exceedingly angry, and we are starting to see Americans take out their anger on one another with frightening regularity.

And if things are this bad already, what is the U.S. going to look like when events really start to spiral out of control?

The way that we raise and educate our children really matters.  For decades, most of the country has completely thrown out all traditional forms of morality, and we have raised our children to believe that they can define “right” and “wrong” however they wish.

Our education system is a complete and total joke, most children have been raised without any real moral foundation, and our culture relentlessly pounds a “victim mentality” into the heads of our young people.

A society is only as strong as the sum of the individuals that make up that society, and right now the lack of character in the United States is absolutely frightening.

Yes, there are certainly lots of exceptions.  I know some truly wonderful people, but I just wish that there were a whole lot more of them.

Unfortunately, the social decay that is eating away at our society like a cancer is getting worse with each passing year.  Decades of incredibly bad decisions have brought us to this point, and there are no indications that our nation is going to choose a different course any time soon.

choosing sides consent to be ruled division Headline News human rights individuals Intelwars Justice justification left vs right paradigm looting peace People police brutality Protection Rioting ruling class stand up two ideas unity Violence wrong

You Can Be Against Police Brutality & Looting and Rioting At The Same Time

It is possible for people to condemn all violence.  Just because someone says they don’t support the looting and rioting, does not mean they support police brutality. Just because someone says that the police shouldn’t kill people with qualified immunity, doesn’t mean they support looting and rioting.

The mainstream media and those who still are stuck in the left/right paradigm want you to choose a side. Police brutality, or looting. It is possible to side with neither at the same time because they are both wrong.  What a surprise! They need you to choose to stay divided instead of standing up together against all violence and all shows of violence.

“The state and its aggression, and the people the loot innocent businesses are not justified in their actions. It doesn’t even mean their both equal, it just means they’re both wrong and it’s easy to speak about both. It is a false choice, a false dichotomy to suggest otherwise,” says July. “Anybody that doesn’t have a brain the size of a coronavirus can actually hold two positions at the same time.”

“People only see what the hell they wanna see,” said Eric July in his recent video. “If you can’t properly identify what the issue is, right, you look at the symptom…and you have this view of what the symptom is, you diagnose it completely incorrectly. And because you diagnose it completely incorrectly, you can’t actually come to a solution.”

“What’s happening here…is you haven’t been paying attention,” July adds. Police brutality in all forms is wrong.  Violence committed against non-violent people is wrong no matter what kind of uniform you have on. It’s morally apprehensive and should not be tolerated. The same can go for the looters and rioters.  It’s wrong to destroy businesses and harm innocent people who have done nothing wrong.  It’s the same position.

But it gets more sticky for those who have chosen sides – either side.  There’s a solution to the looting and rioting, and we’ve seen it first hand. It wasn’t the police that protected a town in Idaho from violent thugs:

People are willing to stand up and protect each other against those who are committing violence and crimes against other small private businesses. But we aren’t standing together against the militarized police who brutalize people daily, not just when there are looting and rioting. Why do they get a pass? The cognitive dissonance by so many is hardly an excuse anymore. We all know committing acts of violence against non-violent people is wrong. It’s wrong when police do it. It’s worn when the militaries of the globe do it, and it’s wrong when looters do it.

Just hold a moral position. That’s it. If you start to allow some a pass on violence because of badges don’t be surprised when it’s you or your guns they come for next, because that’s the next step in all of this. Martial law to bring in a New World Order, and your total enslavement.

Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition is an excellent resource for those who still think aggression against innocent people is conducive with a free society.  If you want to be free, you first have to free your mind, and realize not only what is going on around you, but who is taking your freedom from you.

The primary threat to freedom and justice is not greed, or hatred, or any of the other emotions or human flaws usually blamed for such things. Instead, it is one ubiquitous superstition that infects the minds of people of all races, religions, and nationalities, which deceives decent, well-intentioned people into supporting and advocating violence and oppression. Even without making human beings one bit more wise or virtuous, removing that one superstition would remove the vast majority of injustice and suffering from the world.

Soviet-Style Government In The U.S.: Some Will Always Bow In Enslavement

It doesn’t seem to matter how tyrannical the powers-that-shouldn’t-be get. Some people, in the face of freedom, will always choose slavery and the illusion of safety.  It’s sad to think human beings are willing to live their lives in such a perpetual state of fear that they end up giving up their birthright to masters.

In an article titled “Coronavirus is Proven Some in the U.S Like Soviet-Style Governance,” by The Washington Times, much nicer terms are used than “slavery.” But “Soviet-Style governance” is the very definition of slavery. A lot of humans around the globe have opened their eyes to what government has always been (power, consolidated, and corrupted. After all, it only took 6 years for the U.S. government to violate the basic human rights listed in the  Constitution that they wrote to “keep us safe” from them), yet some think they need more chains and restrictions. If you give up power, in any amount, don’t expect to get it back. Ever. Which is why we could be seeing the beginning of the end of government.  It won’t take many more to wake up to eliminate the ruling class by disobeying.

After Brainwashing People For Decades, MSM and Governments Are Losing Control of People

I have been doing my best to not give in to the fear. Freedom is far too important to give in to the ruling class’ insistence that I live my life afraid of others and some virus that they continually lie about. At the same time, information needs to get out, people need to be informed, and some things are going to come across as negative. The intention is to make sure we all know what’s going on so preparations can be made and we can stand up to this before it’s too late.  No matter what, someone will be offended or upset, but as I said before, the truth doesn’t care about your feelings.

Others, however, are all too happy to take the side of tyranny. Maybe they think if they are good little slaves and obey the master, the virus can’t get them.  Maybe they actually believe they “authorities” care about them. It’s tough to say.  But they are falling quickly into the minority, and for that, we can all be grateful.

The Crisis Won’t Stop Until The Globalists Are Removed From Power

The truth is that we must take power back from anyone who has it and never give it away again.  Never be under any illusions again.  That means, once power is ours, we don’t allow another person to control us.  Ever.  And yes, that goes for cops, and the military, all the way up to the globalists who are pulling the strings.

While it’s true that some people will always bow when commanded and always follow orders, most have actually gotten up off their knees and realized this world has a control structure in place designed to keep them complacent.  When we stand together against the order followers, it’s becoming apparent that we outnumber them by a good amount, and we can end this slavery for good.

This Is OUR POWER: Apple Data Shows Enslavement Ending Whether Government Wants It To Or Not

You cannot hold down something that was always meant to be free forever. The most you can do is create fear and use psych ops to enslave minds. Those who are free will always be because their mind belongs to themselves, and that’s what the establishment and the elite globalists fear the most.

While The Washington Times is correct, that theCoronavirus is Proven Some in the U.S Like Soviet-Style Governance,” the coronavirus scamdemic has also proven that a lot of people will not be enslaved and will live their lives freely and as the sovereign beings they were always meant to be.

anthony fauci Coronavirus Intelwars People Petition Sexiest man alive

Petition to name Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ gathers steam

Take heed, Brad Pitt. Be warned, Bradley Cooper. There is a new contender for this year’s title of People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

A petition has been launched to crown the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as 2020’s most attractive man on the planet.

What are the details?

Dr. Fauci, 79, has become a household name thanks to his high-profile position on the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, and now, his adoring fans want to see him recognized for his sex appeal in a contest typically reserved for the Hollywood elite.

“Dr. Anthony Fauci is America’s top expert on infectious diseases,” the petition on Change.org begins. “His tireless work to educate and support Americans has affected all of us.”

It continues, “His comforting and intelligent demeanor has helped to lessen our national anxiety. He speaks truth to power, a strength few have at this time. His kind face and manner of speaking bring calm during the storm.”

“For sapiophiles and many others,” the petition argues, “he is the definitive Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.”

As of Thursday evening, the petition had more than 1,600 signatories, with a goal of reaching 2,500.

People editor-in-chief Dan Wakeford, who ultimately decides who becomes the magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive,” did not rule out the possibility that Fauci could be in the running for the 2020 title.

“April Fool’s prank or not, Dr. Anthony Fauci is indeed the latest unexpected ‘star’ to emerge from the COVID-19 task force daily press briefings,” Wakeford told Women’s Wear Daily in an interview earlier this week. “He has helped bring back ‘must-see TV’ to the masses, who are hungry for wisdom about how to best care for their family’s health and safety in this time of uncertainty. Smart is sexy, no doubt.”

Anything else?

The New York Post reported that since Dr. Fauci’s rise to fame as “an unlikely celebrity and hero during the coronavirus outbreak,” the likeness of the expert on infectious diseases has been featured on T-shirts, candles, fan art, and as a model in the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

Detect, Deter and Annihilate: How the Police State Will Deal with a Coronavirus Outbreak

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.

“Fear is a primitive impulse, brainless as hunger, and because the aim of horror fiction is the production of the deepest kinds of fears, the genre tends to reinforce some remarkably uncivilized ideas about self-protection. In the current crop of zombie stories, the prevailing value for the beleaguered survivors is a sort of siege mentality, a vigilance so constant and unremitting that it’s indistinguishable from the purest paranoia.”— Terrence Rafferty, New York Times

What do zombies have to do with the U.S. government’s plans for dealing with a coronavirus outbreak? Read on, and I’ll tell you.

The zombie narrative was popularized by the hit television series The Walking Dead, in which a small group of Americans attempt to survive in a zombie-ridden, post-apocalyptic world where they’re not only fighting off flesh-eating ghouls but cannibalistic humans.

For a while there, zombies could be found lurking around every corner: wreaking havoc at gun shows, battling corsets in movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and running for their lives in 5K charity races.

Understandably, zombie fiction plays to our fears and paranoia, while allowing us to “envision how we and our own would thrive if everything went to hell and we lost all our societal supports.” Yet as journalist Syreeta McFadden points out, while dystopian stories used to reflect our anxieties, now they reflect our reality, mirroring how we as a nation view the world around us, how we as citizens view each other, and most of all how our government views us.

Indeed, the U.S. government has spent a lot of time and energy in recent years using zombies as the models for a variety of crisis scenarios not too dissimilar from what we are currently experiencing.

For instance, back in 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put together a zombie apocalypse preparation kit “that details everything you would need to have on hand in the event the living dead showed up at your front door.” The CDC, in conjunction with the Dept. of Defense, even used zombies to put government agents through their paces in mock military drills.

Fear the Walking Dead—AMC’s spinoff of its popular Walking Dead series—drove this point home by dialing back the clock to when the zombie outbreak first appears and setting viewers down in the midst of societal unrest not unlike our own experiences of recent years (“a bunch of weird incidents, police protests, riots, and … rapid social entropy”). Then, as Forbes reports, “the military showed up and we fast-forwarded into an ad hoc police state with no glimpse at what was happening in the world around our main cast of hapless survivors.”

Forbes found Fear’s quick shift into a police state to be far-fetched, but anyone who has been paying attention in recent years knows that the groundwork was laid long ago for the government—i.e., the military—to intervene and lock down the nation in the event of a national disaster.

We’re seeing this play out now as the coronavirus contagion spreads.

What we have yet to experience (although it may only be a matter of time) is that the government through the imposition of martial law could pose a greater threat to our safety (and our freedoms) than any virus.

As the Atlantic noted about Fear the Walking Dead: “The villains aren’t the zombies, who rarely appear, but the U.S. military, who sweep into an L.A. suburb to quarantine the survivors. Zombies are, after all, a recognizable threat—but Fear plumbs drama and horror from the betrayal by institutions designed to keep people safe.”

Indeed, zombie fiction perfectly embodies the government’s paranoia about the citizenry as potential threats that need to be monitored, tracked, surveilled, sequestered, deterred, vanquished and rendered impotent.

Why else would the government feel the need to monitor our communications, track our movements, criminalize our every action, treat us like suspects, and strip us of any means of defense while equipping its own personnel with an amazing arsenal of weapons?

For years now, the government has been carrying out military training drills with zombies as the enemy. In 2011, the DOD created a 31-page instruction manual for how to protect America from a terrorist attack carried out by zombie forces. In 2012, the CDC released a guide for surviving a zombie plague. That was followed by training drills for members of the military, police officers and first responders.

As journalist Andrea Peyser reports:

Coinciding with Halloween 2012, a five-day national conference was put on by the HALO Corp. in San Diego for more than 1,000 first responders, military personnel and law enforcement types. It included workshops produced by a Hollywood-affiliated firm in…overcoming a zombie invasion. Actors were made up to look like flesh-chomping monsters. The Department of Homeland Security even paid the $1,000 entry fees for an unknown number of participants…

“Zombie disaster” drills were held in October 2012 and ’13 at California’s Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The exercises allowed medical center staff “to test response to a deadly infectious disease, a mass-casualty event, terrorism event and security procedures”…

[In October 2014], REI outdoor-gear stores in Soho and around the country are to hold free classes in zombie preparedness, which the stores have been providing for about three years.

The zombie exercises appeared to be kitschy and fun—government agents running around trying to put down a zombie rebellion—but what if the zombies in the exercises were us, the citizenry, viewed by those in power as mindless, voracious, zombie hordes?

Consider this: the government started playing around with the idea of using zombies as stand-ins for enemy combatants in its training drills right around the time the Army War College issued its 2008 report, warning that an economic crisis in the U.S. could lead to massive civil unrest that would require the military to intervene and restore order.

That same year, it was revealed that the government had amassed more than 8 million names of Americans considered a threat to national security, to be used “by the military in the event of a national catastrophe, a suspension of the Constitution or the imposition of martial law.” The program’s name, Main Core, refers to the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community.”

Also in 2008, the Pentagon launched the Minerva Initiative, a $75 million military-driven research project focused on studying social behavior in order to determine how best to cope with mass civil disobedience or uprisings. The Minerva Initiative has funded projects such as “Who Does Not Become a Terrorist, and Why?” which “conflates peaceful activists with ‘supporters of political violence’ who are different from terrorists only in that they do not embark on ‘armed militancy’ themselves.”

In 2009, the Dept. of Homeland Security issued its reports on Rightwing and Leftwing Extremism, in which the terms “extremist” and “terrorist” were used interchangeably to describe citizens they perceived to be disgruntled or anti-government.

Meanwhile, a government campaign was underway to spy on Americans’ mail, email and cell phone communications. News reports indicate that the U.S. Postal Service has handled more than 150,000 requests by federal and state law enforcement agencies to monitor Americans’ mail, in addition to photographing every piece of mail sent through the postal system.

Fast forward a few years more and local police were being transformed into extensions of the military, taught to view members of their community as suspects, trained to shoot first and ask questions later, and equipped with all of the technology and weaponry of a soldier on a battlefield.

The Obama administration then hired a domestic terrorism czar whose job is to focus on anti-government American “extremists” who have been designated a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda. As part of the government’s so-called war on right-wing extremism, the Obama administration agreed to partner with the United Nations to take part in its Strong Cities Network program, which is training local police agencies across America in how to identify, fight and prevent extremism.

Nothing has changed for the better under the Trump Administration.

Those who believe in and exercise their rights under the Constitution (namely, the right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share their political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign), continue to be promoted to the top of the government’s terrorism watch list.

“We the people” or, more appropriately, “we the zombies” are the enemy in the eyes of the government. This coronavirus merely ups the ante.

So when presented with the Defense Department’s battle plan for defeating an army of the walking dead, you might find yourself tempted to giggle over the fact that a taxpayer-funded government bureaucrat actually took the time to research and write about vegetarian zombies, evil magic zombies, chicken zombies, space zombies, bio-engineered weaponized zombies, radiation zombies, symbiont-induced zombies, and pathogenic zombies.

However, in an age of extreme government paranoia, this is no laughing matter.

The DOD’s strategy for dealing with a zombie uprising, outlined in “CONOP 8888,” is for all intents and purposes a training manual for the government in how to put down a citizen uprising or at least an uprising of individuals “infected” with a dangerous disease or dangerous ideas about freedom.

Rest assured that the tactics and difficulties outlined in the “fictional training scenario” are all too real, beginning with martial law.

As the DOD training manual states: “zombies [stand-ins for “we the people”] are horribly dangerous to all human life and zombie infections have the potential to seriously undermine national security and economic activities that sustain our way of life. Therefore having a population that is not composed of zombies or at risk from their malign influence is vital to U.S. and Allied national interests.”

So how does the military plan to put down a zombie (a.k.a. citizen) uprising?

The strategy manual outlines five phases necessary for a counter-offensive: shape, deter, seize initiative, dominate, stabilize and restore civil authority. Here are a few details:

Phase 0 (Shape): Conduct general zombie awareness training. Monitor increased threats (i.e., surveillance). Carry out military drills. Synchronize contingency plans between federal and state agencies. Anticipate and prepare for a breakdown in law and order.

Phase 1 (Deter): Recognize that zombies cannot be deterred or reasoned with. Carry out training drills to discourage other countries from developing or deploying attack zombies and publicly reinforce the government’s ability to combat a zombie threat. Initiate intelligence sharing between federal and state agencies. Assist the Dept. of Homeland Security in identifying or discouraging immigrants from areas where zombie-related diseases originate.

Phase 2 (Seize initiative): Recall all military personal to their duty stations. Fortify all military outposts. Deploy air and ground forces for at least 35 days. Carry out confidence-building measures with nuclear-armed peers such as Russia and China to ensure they do not misinterpret the government’s zombie countermeasures as preparations for war. Establish quarantine zones. Distribute explosion-resistant protective equipment. Place the military on red alert. Begin limited scale military operations to combat zombie threats. Carry out combat operations against zombie populations within the United States that were “previously” U.S. citizens.

Phase 3 (Dominate): Lock down all military bases for 30 days. Shelter all essential government personnel for at least 40 days. Equip all government agents with military protective gear. Issue orders for the military to kill all non-human life on sight. Initiate bomber and missile strikes against targeted sources of zombie infection, including the infrastructure. Burn all zombie corpses. Deploy the military to lock down the beaches and waterways.

Phase 4 (Stabilize): Send out recon teams to check for remaining threats and survey the status of basic services (water, power, sewage infrastructure, air, and lines of communication). Execute a counter-zombie ISR plan to ID holdout pockets of zombie resistance. Use all military resources to target any remaining regions of zombie holdouts and influence. Continue all actions from the Dominate phase.

Phase 5 (Restore civil authority): Deploy military personnel to assist any surviving civil authorities in disaster zones. Reconstitute combat capabilities at various military bases. Prepare to redeploy military forces to attack surviving zombie holdouts. Restore basic services in disaster areas.

Notice the similarities?

Surveillance. Military drills. Awareness training. Militarized police forces. Martial law.

As I point out in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, if there is any lesson to be learned, it is simply this: whether the threat to national security comes in the form of imaginary zombies, actual terrorists, American citizens infected with the coronavirus, or disgruntled American citizens infected with dangerous ideas about freedom, the government’s response to such threats remains the same: detect, deter and annihilate.

containment not possible Coronavirus deadly death toll Epidemic Flu global outbreak Headline News Health illness Infections Intelwars People rate Scientists symptoms Transmission Virus

Harvard Scientist: “The Coronavirus Will Infect 70% of Humanity”

A scientist at Harvard University is predicting the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, will infect 70% of humanity. Marc Lipsitch is predicting the coronavirus “will ultimately not be containable” and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity.

The Atlantic reported that a vaccine is still years away, so it’ll also be useless in stopping the spread of the coronavirus.  He also says that we shouldn’t be alarmed by these numbers because most of those infected won’t have severe illnesses or even show symptoms at all, which is already the case for many people who have tested positive for the virus.  This will likely hold true unless the virus mutates into a more deadly and severe form.

This seems to go without saying, that you still don’t want to get this coronavirus.  Much like the flu, it isn’t likely to kill you, but it definitely could.

Simple Prepper Hacks To AVOID Getting The Flu

But the fact that most people don’t show any symptoms of the virus is why Lipsitch feels like this is simply not containable. There’s also an emerging consensus that the outbreak will eventually morph into a new seasonal disease, which, per The Atlantic, could one day turn “cold and flu season” into “cold and flu and COVID-19 season.”

While scientists everywhere try to get the upper hand when it comes to fighting this outbreak, it’s proven difficult. Scientists do say that the coronavirus is not expected to mutate quickly, and if it does, it probably won’t become more deadly. Viruses, like parasites, want to survive, and killing everyone they infect is not the way to go about surviving.

The WHO said on Monday that the COVID-19 outbreak was not out of control globally and does not have a large-scale death toll, so it was “too early” to speak of a pandemic, according to a report by Reuters.
