Ron Paul: 600 Doctors Warn Trump: Lockdown May Be More Deadly Than Coronavirus!

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the many doctors warning Trump that the lockdown may be more deadly than coronavirus.

From their YouTube page:

Hundreds of doctors have sent a letter to President Trump warning that the nationwide lockdown is killing thousands of Americans. It may end up more deadly even than the coronavirus it is intended to defeat. Doctors understand that you don’t kill the patient to save the patient. Also, homeschool moms in Lake Jackson, TX, defy officials and take their kids to the park. City workers call the cops – but in a twist, the moms know their Constitution and end up schooling both the cops and city officials.

The COVID “Social Justice” Psy-Op Continues

Now first of all, much of what we have been hearing from mainstream news media on COVID is propaganda. It’s mostly fear-mongering and shilling for Big Pharma. So the best thing to do is to stop watching TV.

On talk radio, which is supposedly an alternative to government-media propaganda, there are also sheeple and spokespeople for the government. For instance, Sean Hannity seems to be going along with the official narrative, the mask mandates and social distancing, and his at least implying that COVID is more serious than a flu or cold. Hannnity praises the corrupt and dishonest Dr. Fauci as well. And Glenn Beck is not as bad as Hannity, but he’s close. Bill O’Reilly frequently appears on their radio shows and he and Beck and Hannity, especially Hannity, have been discussing the COVID and societal shut-down in the context of the official narrative, like they either believe it all or they are just dishonest propagandists, or both. (I think that Hannity besides being gullible and ignorant is also probably a shill for the pharmaceutical companies, who sponsor a lot of Fox Snooze shows.)

However, on talk radio Rush Limbaugh and Howie Carr have been much more common sense and challenging of the official narrative. By the way, Limbaugh had said earlier this year that he was hospitalized with the flu (not related to his lung cancer diagnosis). Hmmm, I wonder if that “flu” was really COVID-19? Has he been tested for the COVID antibodies?

So anyway, here’s a common utterance by the bamboozled sheeple: “If I get coronavirus COVID-19, I’m going to die.” Sadly, a lot of people think that, as though the death rate is like Ebola which has a 90% death rate, even though COVID-19 has a death rate or infection fatality rate of .1%. No, not 1%, but .1%. That’s one-tenth of 1%.

But because of daily propaganda, “COVID = Ebola.” (Therefore, PANIC!!!!)

And then we have the lies about “COVID deaths.” The CDC changed its guidelines (.pdf, CDC link) to say in essence that if someone died of heart disease, kidney failure or other illnesses, then officials are putting “COVID” or “Coronavirus” on death certificates not only if the patient happened to test positive for coronavirus, but also if the patient was never even tested.

As I posted previously, Project Veritas had a video of funeral directors in New York claiming that they are putting “COVID” on all the death certificates regardless of facts. Just today, in fact, I happened to hear a talk radio show and a caller said his parent died of dementia last week, and they received the death certificate which said “coronavirus” as the cause of death, even though the deceased parent had “tested negative” for the virus.

And in Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Half-Baker keeps talking about decisions on whether to “reopen” the state based on the “science” and the “data.” He’s FOS. That state has been following the CDC guidelines to make things up, saying that an “infection” is someone who is “likely” infected with the coronavirus even without “laboratory confirmation,” i.e. making it up.

So the official death toll now in the U.S. is not 89,000, it’s much less than that. They are lying and cheating, these government bureaucrats. And then there is the Medicare fraud aspect, in which the federal government is bribing hospitals to put “COVID” as cause of death and for each “COVID” death the hospital receives more money. It is a virtual pandemic, as Jon Rappoport would put it.

But people continue to panic and hide, and continue with the paranoia. Yet, with the infection rate being so widespread now according to Stanford University and University of Miami, most of the people who have the virus will have no symptoms at all or just mild, flu or cold symptoms. A tiny percentage will have to be hospitalized.

So there’s no POINT to testing everyone or vaccinating everyone, especially given the flawed and inaccurate testing, the false positives and false negatives, and there’s no point to doing “contact tracing,” except to invade people’s privacy. There’s no point to rushing an untested and unsafe vaccine to market or worse mandating it on people. And there’s no point to taking everyone’s temperature before entering a business or concert event or sporting event. All of that is actually absurd now.

How many people have been terrorized by the fear-mongering propaganda and panic-incitement that when they have a little cough or cold symptoms they are convinced they have COVID-19 (and will 100% DIE!) so they rush to the hospital unnecessarily?

And then there are the ventilators, which Jon Rappoport has referred to (that I have linked to before) with the list of lung damage issues that the ventilators could cause. Those problems include oxygen toxicity, as well as bacteria from the ventilator causing pneumonia, and blood clotting, too. (Haven’t we been hearing lately about “COVID” patients having blood clots? As though the COVID is causing the blood clots? How many of those blood clot sufferers were put on the ventilator?)

How many people were put on ventilators who then died because the ventilators killed them and not the coronavirus? Have you even heard about any of those things? Probably not (if you only get your news from TV, that is).

And what about this “flattening the curve” crap? The hospitals have not been overrun by sick COVID victims, many hospitals have been less-than capacity, because, in the end, the numbers of COVID victims have been exaggerated, and especially because a lot of heart attack victims, stroke victims and other people with emergencies have been staying home (and dying that way) out of fear of getting COVID-19 from the hospital, a fear which is unfounded because most COVID-19 patients survive and have mainly mild symptoms.

The politicians and their spokespeople in the “news” media continue to refer to the crashed economy, the higher unemployment rate, and food shortages as “caused by the virus” or by the “pandemic,” which is all a further lie. All those things were caused by fascist governors ordering businesses shut down, which caused the job losses and bankruptcies. And making people have to stay home and not go out.

So what the criminal governors have done is not only the aforementioned, but also all the extra stress they have caused millions of people, and all the added illnesses, strokes and heart attacks, the depression and suicides. No, the “pandemic” didn’t cause all those things, and “coronavirus” didn’t cause all those things, you lying apparatchiks in the media!

Whether or not this has all been planned and on purpose, it does create a large opening for communists including AOC, Elizabeth Warren Liawatha, the Obamas and Clintons, Bernie Sanders et al., who want the government to run all the industries in society. And they are exploiting this manufactured crisis as much as possible. Their “stimulus” packages — which the idiot Trump has been supporting and signing on to, by the way — are incentivizing people to not be productive, a basic principle of communist societies.

In their crazed, brainwashed belief in government authority and government management, despite all empirical evidence proving otherwise, they really believe that government can run everything (or anything).

There are also those who have been wanting to kill the economy, kill productivity and jobs, and out of envy and resentment of Donald Trump’s “successes,” which were achieved via tax cuts and deregulation mostly. The apparatchik governors — especially Andrew Cuomo and Charlie Half-Baker, in my view — hate Trump so much they don’t care how much destruction they cause as long as the economy is bad by election time and Trump would more likely lose the election. (Sean Hannity and those other radio sheeple are the apparatchiks’ unwitting enablers, by the way.)

So this whole thing is a part of a “social justice” i.e. social control, social engineering agenda. (Now, if you think that or anything I’ve mentioned so far is “conspiratorial,” then you have been watching too much TV, and you need to turn it off!)

Getting millions of slaves to wear a mask that may be harmful to their lungs and brains, making people be “6 feet apart!” Making grocery stores or other businesses put tapes on the floor “6 feet!” apart and/or only allow curbside pickup, and all for NO GOOD REASON! Making people be paranoid, afraid to get near someone else, turning people into social-distance stasi robots. It’s all CRAZY!

And saying that liquor stores are “essential” while churches and other businesses are “non-essential.” (Well, they are right, however, to say that government schools are non-essential and must be closed, and in fact should be abolished outright!)

And speaking of the upcoming Presidential election, look at all the cheating that one particular side wants to do. Especially with mail-in voting, i.e. ballot harvesting and ballot stuffing. All the little cheating devices. And “Rank Choice” voting to intentionally confuse the voters. They lust for POWER!

So we have the brainwashed “social justice”/climate crusade zombies who are True Believers in their government control agenda mixed in with the power-lusting power-grabbers who just love government power and control over others and who crave the power to impose their social engineering fantasies on others and who will stop at nothing to get that centralized power and control.

And then there’s the freedom of speech issue. Besides the biased propaganda and self-censorship practiced by the moonstream media, the brainwashed zombies are imposing censorship via YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter of alternative and skeptical views (i.e. non-climate change crusade, non-SJW, non-government worship, etc.) so that the masses are not exposed to the facts, ideas, history and economics that inform one to actually reject the irrational (i.e. climate change crusade, SJW, government worship, etc.).

And to conclude this, I believe that another reason for the mask mandates is that the mask symbolizes a stifling of free speech. I look around and see all the sheeple with a mask covering their faces and their mouths, like it symbolizes “Shut up — Don’t talk back to government rulers imposing draconian totalitarian controls onto you!” and so on.

“Mark Cuban Not Welcome Here!”

I like it. Becky Akers has a post responding to Mark Cuban’s little stasi experiment in which his minions went to stores and restaurants in Dallas to see who was observing the Twilight Zone guidelines dictated by Gov. Abbott, and who wasn’t. Only 4% of the business patrons observed all the Soviet, central-planning madness, and good for the remaining 96%, as far as I’m concerned. One of Becky Akers’s correspondents wrote that if he had a business there he would hang a banner stating, “Mark Cuban not welcome here!” And in this post Becky notes that such civil disobedience is happening all over the country. Hooray!

And Allen Stevo with an article on how to sue your governor, including his linking to an article by Robert E. Wright asking why Americans aren’t suing their way out of the lockdown.

Medical Doctors Debunk Dr. Fauci, YouTube Takes Down Non-Propaganda Videos

These videos of two medical doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in California, debunking Dr. Fauci et al. propaganda, were taken down by YouTube, even though they reached over 5 million views. YouTube is another propaganda branch of the U.S. government, no doubt about it.

According to Paul Joseph Watson,

In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.

“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?’” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”

The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”

I guess propaganda is a “Term of Service,” and truth is not.

But apparently BitChute has the videos, and here they are:

Becky Akers on the Churches Obediently Closing Down During COVID Hysteria

Patriot’s Lament Radio talks to Becky Akers regarding the COVID-19 panic and hysteria, and the churches closing down as they bow to their real god, the evil State. Becky is a knowledgeable Bible-believing Christian who defends civil disobedience. She also addresses the TSA (“Thieves and Sexual Assailants”) and the parents who willingly bring their precious children to airports to be criminally assaulted by TSA thugs and rapists. But the main topic here is the churches in today’s Soviet Amerika.

Government’s Coronavirus Restrictions on Daily Life: Will There Be Blood in the Streets? Resistance?

At the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, regarding the liberty-violating and Constitution-violating restrictions imposed by tyrannical government bureaucrats, Adam Dick says there might be blood in the streets, in businesses, in religious sanctuaries, and in homes, because the rulers’ enforcement of such fascism will increasingly involve violence.

And Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss resistance building to coronavirus “house arrest” orders:

Coronavirus Hysteria: Persecution of Christians on Easter in USSA

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear will have police record the license plates of those who are out and specifically those who are attending Easter services and violating his home imprisonment diktat and those who are caught will be ordered into 14-day quarantine. These power-mad control freaks are real nazis now, as I have already mentioned here. I don’t think the previous governor Matt Bevin would be doing this.

And Becky Akers writes:

A shocking daylight raid of a church service attended by many elderly congregants” featured cops “issu[ing] a whopping $500 fine to every person who refused to leave.” Worse, this persecution “didn’t happen in New York or California, but right in the middle of the Bible Belt — Greenville, Mississippi.” It also gave the lie to the State’s claims that it’s simply protecting us from bubonic plague–sorry, C-virus: the service was a “drive-in” one, “where worshipers were isolated in their own cars and listened to the sermon on the radio.”

Cheer the utterly courageous, defiant pastor with me: “I told them to get some more tickets ready because we will be preaching Sunday morning and Sunday night,” Pastor Arthur Scott said. “One of the police officers said the mayor wanted to make an example of our church…” Oh, yeah, that’s totally Constitutional, as Mark Carroll, who sent me this article, must be snorting.

Speaking of courage and defiance, here’s how one creative reader of LRC is defying the Catholic Church’s anti-Biblical order to shutter its chapels:

“I will be on the steps of my Catholic parish’s church just before 7am [tomorrow, Easter Sunday]. I will test the door, to see if it opens. If not, I will quietly sit on the steps. For how long, I don’t know yet.

“I have already set a minor stage for this by doing two things:

  1. Inform by email one of the priests–a long-time family friend–of my intention (his reply was, well, irritated; I clearly struck a nerve).
  2. Inform by email three good friends who are also parishioners (I intentionally included no RSVP).

“My wife will accompany me, but stand off the church property in the car, in case I am confronted or arrested. I don’t expect that to happen. To any police officer who approaches me, I will merely say that I am waiting for the church to open as the governor specifically exempted churches from any order to close (that order, sadly, came from the treacherous bishops, and the priests…obeyed). … I will not be on public property, nor will I be in spitting distance of anyone else. If no one (priest) duly asks for my removal, I’m not sure what any police officer could do to me, or what lawful order he could issue.

“I have no idea if anyone will join me, but I expect no one. … I did say–in the email read by my priest friend–that I consider my intended action a test to see what our parish priests are made of. They have been notified as a courtesy. I know they’ll be awake. I also know the security cameras will be on.

“As I write this, it occurs to me to wonder if the pastor will have the parish’s uniformed, armed private security guard on duty. He is a close friend, but I did not include him in my heads-ups. I guess it never occurred to me that a locked church campus would need extra security. … I will not confront him or defy his order to leave the premises, should he so order. If he does, I will be profoundly sad.”

Please join me in praying for this martyr-in-the-making as well as our brothers and sisters in Mississippi as they recover from the trauma—and expense—of Our Rulers’ tantrum.

And, while not really related to Easter, but still regarding the rise in coronavirus-related totalitarianism, police in Philadelphia are pulling people off public transportation for not wearing a mask.

Coronavirus Hysteria: Is Military Martial Law Coming to Amerika?

Donald Trump is now showing his true FDR-Hitlerian fascist self, with his now wanting to order private companies to have to produce certain things they normally don’t produce, in Trump’s declaring that he is now a “Wartime President” with fake news coronavirus COVID-19 hysteria.

And this after Trump’s many statements comparing coronavirus to the flu, which really is the case, and downplaying its seriousness.

Yes, it IS serious, but mainly for elderly people and those with other serious illnesses, especially for those with respiratory issues. And it is serious for those who have compromised respiratory systems, such as smokers. THOSE are the ones who should practice “social distancing,” and “sheltering in place,” not the rest of us!

Trump’s 180-degree turn to more idiocy and irrationality means he probably has been psy-opped by the power-hungry apparatchiks he has surrounding him, from the generals to the CDC propagandists.

This is a power grab for government medical “experts,” and government bureaucrats, too many of which are pervading and slithering in Washington and in the state governments all over Amerika.

Governors ordering schools closed, restaurants closed down and other businesses closing, and some mayors such as the mayor of San Fransicko ordering “shelter-in-place,” i.e. unlawfully imprisoning residents of a whole city!

And it’s all based on media over-hyping and inciting panic. Many lazy and ignorant local news media stenographers rely on the national news media and the New York Slimes and the Washington Pest, who get their “information” i.e. propaganda from bureaucrats and then regurgitate it all without question.

I noticed that many of those media propaganda-disseminators are either ignorantly or intentionally not reiterating that most of the people who get COVID-19 will experience “mild” symptoms and most will not need to be hospitalized. The media’s omitting important parts of the story, parts of the story that will calm people’s nerves about this flu-like illness, is causing or inciting hysteria and panic, and the sheeple hoarding toilet paper!

People are swarming to the hospitals because they have symptoms even though they probably don’t have the coronavirus. The hospitals are now being overrun by people with colds and flu, and/or hypochondriacs who have been scared sh*tless by the media panic-inciters.

And so what if they do have coronavirus? Most of them will be home sick like they have the flu! Most of the people, anyway. This panic is totally unwarranted!

Oh, the problem, we are told, is that people can be “carriers” of the virus and not know it. Well, that is the same situation with many colds and flu that are constantly going around all year! 10-20,000 people per year are dying of the flu, but we are not panicking over that. Someone who is a carrier of the common flu virus might be visiting Grandma and giving her the flu, which she may not survive because of age and/or other medical conditions that compromise her immune system. We’re not hysterical about that, are we?

So, this whole thing with the markets crashing out of panic is CRAZINESS! And that’s another thing. The newscasters are constantly referring to the fascist orders by governors and mayors, the markets crashing and other issues are due to “the virus,” which is NOT correct! Those problems are happening as consequences of the PANIC associated with the virus! It is the panic that is causing all these problems!

I’ve heard on some talk shows on the radio that various people on social media are showing delight in the panic, and showing glee in the markets crashing, like oh maybe now we can ensure that Donald Trump will not get reelected. If that’s true, those are really sick people.

After the “Russia-collusions” witch hunt didn’t work, and then the impeachment didn’t work, let’s try scaring the population to fear a flu virus and causing the markets to crash. Hooray! They’ve accomplished crashing the stock market and reversing all the gains since Trump became President! Are people really showing glee and joy over that? Really?

Meanwhile, the rulers of the cities and states, and nationally fascist Trump, are delighting in all the new powers they will be grabbing. And anyone who challenges their edicts, and who questions the coronavirus propaganda crusade will be censored and maybe even arrested!

What will happen to those practicing civil disobedience and opening those restaurants anyway, those in San Franpsycho leaving their homes and going out and about anyway in defiance of the mayor’s Orwellian order to imprison them?

Here is Judge Andrew Napolitano on “Freedom in a Time of Madness” in his addressing the governors and mayors’ totalitarian impulses:

We all know how central economic planning diminishes freedom and adds to the cost of products. Now we know that central micromanagement of health care can kill people.

But these mayors and governors were not to be outdone by the feds in their totalitarian impulses. Many of them, particularly in the northeast and the west coast, have issued decrees that are as profoundly unconstitutional as Lincoln’s efforts to silence dissent.

The governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut have all issued decrees closing most retail establishments, particularly all restaurants, bars and theaters. The governor of New Jersey is threatening to ban all travel after dark. And, the mayor of New York City is threatening to ban all travel all the time.

The fulfillment of these totalitarian impulses has put more than 1 million folks out of work, closed thousands of businesses and impaired the fundamental rights of tens of millions of persons — all in violation of numerous sections of the Constitution.

The Contracts Clause of the Constitution prohibits the states from interfering with lawful contracts, such as leases and employment agreements. And the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the states from interfering with life, liberty or property without a trial at which the state must prove fault. The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment requires just compensation when the state meaningfully interferes with an owner’s chosen lawful use of his property.

Taken together, these clauses reveal the significant protections of private property in the Constitution itself. Add to this the threat of punishment that has accompanied these decrees and the fact that they are executive decrees, not legislation, and one can see the paramount rejection of basic democratic and constitutional principles in the minds and words and deeds of those who have perpetrated them.

Add to all this, the protection in the First Amendment of the right to associate and the judicially recognized right to travel — both of which are natural rights — and it is clear that these nanny state rules are unconstitutional, unlawful and unworthy of respect or compliance.

But wait, there’s more: Now it seems that the military has secret plans to take over the country if the coronavirus (really, the hysteria and panic, and markets crashing, mass unemployment and food shortages) cripples the government.

What? “cripple the government” in Warshington? But that’s a good thing! Decentralization is what this whole territory of America needs to restore our freedom and prosperity. Duh.

So, according to William Arkin, the former Washington Post reporter whose investigative reporting revealed Washington’s huge military-intelligence (sic) expansion post-9/11 (an extensive investigative report that I referenced here), the military really does have secret plans for “continuity of government” in case of disaster, invasion, a crippled DC (Yay!), or “everyone in the government being home sick from coronavirus,” and so on.

According to Arkin,

According to new documents and interviews with military experts, the various plans – codenamed Octagon, Freejack and Zodiac – are the underground laws to ensure government continuity. They are so secret that under these extraordinary plans, “devolution” could circumvent the normal Constitutional provisions for government succession, and military commanders could be placed in control around America.

“We’re in new territory,” says one senior officer, the entire post-9/11 paradigm of emergency planning thrown out the window. The officer jokes, in the kind of morbid humor characteristic of this slow-moving disaster, that America had better learn who Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy is.

He is the “combatant commander” for the United States and would in theory be in charge if Washington were eviscerated. That is, until a new civilian leader could be installed.

In my view, all this seems to be a pre-planned thing, and the crazed U.S. military bureaucrats have been wanting to take over for decades. Finally, a moron like Donald Trump gets into the White House, so easily manipulable and psy-oppable, the military bureaucrats have their gullible guy to propagandize and get him to forget about “draining the swamp” and instead “Make America Worse Again” with new, unconstitutional power grabs to even further militarize and Nazi Germany-ize the country, all for the sake of feeding their hunger for power and control.

And that is why we now have all this coronavirus COVID-19 hysteria and panic. And the politicians, including the “constitutionalists,” are eating it all up “For Our Own Good,” and the news media are nothing but useful idiots to promote Amerika’s “New Way of Life.” If you thought post-9/11 was something, post-coronavirus will be something else.

And finally, when the military does try to take over the country, that will be the constitutional definition of Treason. Not only will they be constitutional oath-violators, but their violating of the rights of the people will be acts of Treason, acts of war against their own people, goddamn virus or no virus.

Coronavirus Hysteria: “Liberals” for Fascism, Police State in Amerika

Here is my latest article on Activist Post: Coronavirus Hysteria: “Liberals” for Fascism, Police State in Amerika:

March 17, 2020

Former Congressman Ron Paul is right about the government and medical fear mongers inciting panic among the American population. Bureaucrats and their media spokespeople are scaring Americans to accept unnecessary abridgments of their freedom.

And it’s very troubling now with the “liberals” and their calls for more fascism and controls, and pleas for censorship, just as it was with the warmongers after 9/11.

Bernie Sanders recently accused Donald Trump’s alleged coronavirus “unfactual information” of “exacerbating the crisis,” and said that, “the first thing we have got to do, whether or not I’m president, is to shut this president up right now.”

But all Trump has done is to tell the truth about the coronavirus COVID-19, that for most people is really no different from the seasonal flu. The symptoms are similar, and for most people the symptoms are mild symptoms.

For Bernie and the media propagandists, everyone should just obediently believe the hype that implies that COVID-19 is as serious as Ebola, and shut up.

(However, while Ebola has a 90% mortality rate, coronavirus COVID-19 has a less then 1% mortality rate. That’s quite a difference, Bernie.)

Like the neocon warmongers and interventionists who censored criticism of government psychopaths after 9/11, the “liberals” will be going after any speech that doesn’t fall in line with the official narrative propaganda of COVID-19.

After 9/11, there were many instances of government-imposed censorship. In the years after 9/11, Sen. Lindsey Graham said, “I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II, you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy.”

Note the “We’re At War” thing. We’re “at war” so Graham says censoring or stifling freedom of speech (especially our criticism of those imbeciles in Washington) is okey-dokey for him.

And Graham and his fellow statists also reject due process. He said that if someone is accused of terrorism, then, “If you’re an American citizen and you betray your country, you’re not going to be given a lawyer.”

Naturally statists who worship the high-and-mighty rulers do not understand that we’re talking about those accused of “betraying their country,” not people who have been tried and convicted of such acts.

But soon the non-hysterical and non-irrational will be accused of “terrorism” or of “giving people COVID-19” if we don’t go along with the hype and panic, and who knows what will happen then.

The “liberals” are now the ones with the “We’re at War” mentality, with the overblown, over-hyped “War on Coronavirus.” Unlike during the H1N1 crisis of 2009-2010 when Obama was President, now Trump is President. That’s different. So the Trump haters’ inner Nazi is now showing in full glory.

Besides the president of France Emmanuel Macron saying, “We are at war,” here in the U.S. government parasites like Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are calling for the military to get involved with COVID-19. As Becky Akers notes, Cuomo has already militarized New Rochelle. (Oh, what will the Petries do now?)

Herr Cuomo wrote in a New York Times op-ed, “our best hope is to utilize the Army Corps of Engineers to leverage its expertise, equipment, and people power to retrofit and equip existing facilities — like military bases or college dormitories” … (For COVID-19 sufferers? Or for those who object to the “liberal” fascists and their police state? We just don’t know.)

And the president of Massachusetts General Hospital has said that “we need to think about this in almost a war-like stance,” so, I’m sure that he and the doctors have their battle fatigues on, the ambulance tanks revved up, and ready for the kill.

In Massachusetts, the alleged birthplace of the American Revolution, the liberal Republican Gov. Charlie Baker has ordered schools closed, a ban on gatherings of more than 25 sheeple, and he’s ordered restaurants and bars closed down. Other U.S. state governors are doing the same, and some are ordering more extensive bans and closures.

The sheeple are responding to the media and “officials” propaganda by flooding grocery stores and hoarding toilet paper and other goods, like it’s an impending blizzard or hurricane. The restaurant closures will elicit more hysterical crowding of the grocery stores, so the fascists in control might consider closing them, too. What then?

The rulers just don’t get the freedom thing, do they?

What, not let all the businesses be open and let the informed public make their own choice whether to voluntarily go into a restaurant or bar, or not?

No, NOT voluntary! “Voluntary” doesn’t enter the vocabulary of a fascist, or socialist like Bernie Sanders who wants the government to control just about every aspect of everyday life, with all the people being compelled by force to comply. OBEY!

With the stock market collapsing like in 2008, and many people now losing their finances and with the business closings many people losing their necessary commerce and paychecks, I am hoping that someone takes these bureaucrats and their dictatorial orders to court.

And what if business owners and their customers and patrons engaged in civil disobedience, and went about their lives as usual? What would Gov. Charlie Baker do to them? Arrest them? And put them into over-crowded jails, putting them at risk of coronavirus COVID-19?

And all this hysteria and government conniving with a contagious virus, that, as Dr. Jeremy Faust of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School wrote, isn’t as deadly as the media are making it out to be. Compared to Ebola, COVID-19’s mortality rate of probably less than 1% is quite low, taking into account all the people who have probably already had it but because of mild symptoms assumed it was just a flu or cold and so didn’t bother reporting it or even going to the doctor.

It is mainly a serious problem for those who already have respiratory illnesses or other serious medical problems, and for the elderly whose immune systems are weaker because of age.

And by the way, because of the media’s sensationalizing COVID-19, and with the fascism and militarism of this latest situation, just how many strokes and heart attacks might happen (or have happened) because of all the stress and worry being inflicted onto people by fear mongers and the stock market collapse and uncertainty they have caused?
