More Fallout from “Libertarian” Party Elites Snubbing the Grassroots Voters

As I mentioned before, the elites of the “Libertarian” Party held a virtual convention in which they decided to nominate Jo Jorgensen for President, even though in state primaries Jacob Hornberger won many more votes from the actual LP voters. “Libertarian Party voters in primaries gave Jacob Hornberger 9,035 votes with 7 state wins, while they gave Jo Jorgensen 5,034 votes with 2 state wins,” I wrote.

And then I wrote about Jorgensen attending a Black Lives Matter candlelight vigil, and she tweeted, “It is not enough to be passively not racist, we must be actively anti-racist.” Of course, I’ll bet she doesn’t include being actively anti- anti-white racist. If anyone does that, oppose anti-white racism, then one will be labeled “white supremacist,” etc. So much for equality.

But now, Robert Wenzel has posted or reposted a tweet with a photo showing Jorgensen elbow-bumping her VP nominee, Spike Cohen. The horrible and horrifying thing about that is they are wearing those face masks whose only purpose is to show obedience, compliance, and submission to government authority. That is soooo un-libertarian.

Libertarianism is about the Non-Aggression Principle. We oppose the initiation of aggression. It is also about self-ownership, private property rights and freedom of association, in my view.

What is government? Government is by its very nature, aggression. The government has assumed for itself the authority over the lives and property of the people. The government owns the people, frankly, and the government — that is, its bureaucrats and their enforcers — can order you to do this or that, can arrest you, drag you out of your home, terrorize you, steal from you, etc. with impunity. They own you.

So, when we have political candidates who supposedly represent the “Libertarian” message, i.e., the anti-aggression anti-interventionism message, when they show themselves wearing the very symbols of submission to government control and authority, and the very symbols of the suppression of speech and dissent, they show themselves to be not particularly libertarians, or perhaps just clueless.

Yes, they should have the freedom to wear the mask if they want to. But they shouldn’t for the aforementioned reasons, but also because the masks are unhealthy, and shown to not prevent transmission of viruses. The sole purpose of the masks is control.

The LP conventioneers should have gone with the voters’ decision to nominate Jacob Hornberger.

Ron Paul: Should We Trust The Covid Tests?

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the validity of the COVID tests. From the YouTube page:

Media and politicians are using the reported massive increase in positive Covid test results to call for another US lockdown. Meanwhile there are increasing doubts as to the accuracy of the tests. New Jersey is mandating masks and two Texas counties are threatening felony charges against those with positive tests who do not stay home. Are these fears justified? Has the continuing decline of Covid deaths become meaningless?

Why Mask-Mandating Bureaucrats Must Be Charged with Endangerment, Child Abuse, Assault, Terrorism, and Treason

Before I get to the masks, I want to review what exactly we are dealing with here. Government bureaucrats and their media stenographers have been lying about this whole COVID fiasco all along.

The CDC guidelines instruct state “public health” commissars to include non-COVID deaths on the count for “COVID deaths,” even though a deceased died of some other ailment but happened to test positive for COVID-19. The CDC and various state agencies are also including non-laboratory confirmed, “likely” and “probable” cases in the same category as “confirmed COVID” cases. And when the people do get tested, the tests themselves are unreliable and there are many false positives.

And now there’s a COVID “spike,” a “second wave” or really a “first wave” in certain states like Texas and Florida, even though the rise is in positive test results and most of those people do not have any symptoms!

But the dishonest news media are repeatedly exaggerating this “spike” with such urgency and panic that “news” consumers are probably hearing “case” numbers as deaths!

The truth is, there is no reason to wear a mask or to “social distance” because we now know that asymptomatic carriers have a low to no risk of infecting others.

That’s according to one study and according to a World Health Organization epidemiologist in which the WHO had a “number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing. They’re following asymptomatic cases. They’re following contacts. And they’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare.”

The corrupt Dr. Fauci claimed there was “no evidence” to support that, even though the WHO had done “detailed contact tracing” in several different countries. That’s “evidence,” Dr. Fauci!

So they have admitted that even if someone has the virus, as long as that person has no symptoms, it is very rare that that person could infect others (except probably in cases of VERY close contact, if you know what I mean).

That information came out the week of June 8th, and one week later June 14th is when we then hear of the “spike in cases.” Hmmm.

But many people still really believe that “If I get that virus I’m gonna DIE!!!” even though the case fatality rate now is .1%, a tenth of one percent!

The truth is, COVID-19 is just like the seasonal influenza, the “flu,” with a similar death rate of .01%. The flu affects more or less the same categories of people as COVID, according to the CDC.

Interestingly, seasonal influenza is actually more serious, and more deadly, for some people than COVID-19, believe it or not. 169 children have died of seasonal influenza during the 2019-2020 flu season, according to the CDC.

Prior to the past month or so, the CDC had been reporting that zero children had died of COVID-19 (worldwide). But, now that the CDC and all its state underlings have been cheating, counting any deaths as “COVID” deaths, we really have no idea what the real number is. It’s probably still “zero” for children. I see in googling that states such as Tennessee and North Carolina are counting new child COVID deaths for the first time. Not even in China or Italy were there any child deaths!

A recent study reinforced that children are not nearly as seriously affected by COVID-19 as adults, unlike seasonal flu.

So, we don’t terrorize people and turn the world into the Twilight Zone each flu season, do we? Well then there’s no point to the wreckage and destruction of the past 5 months now. There’s NO point to it!

The governors with their daily propaganda briefings have been terrorizing the sheeple into submission. The governor bureaucrats and their media propagandists continue to repeat the “spike in COVID cases,” like a religious mantra. They are zombies.

If they weren’t intentionally trying to terrorize people into hysteria and panic, the bureaucrats and the media would clarify in each press briefing or news report that “cases” are just positive test results, not serious illnesses or deaths. They would do that to ease people’s minds. But no, they are doing the opposite.

Instead, the bureaucrats and media cohorts terrorize people who have a runny nose or a cough to run frantically to the hospital and then the hospital puts them on a ventilator giving them new lung infections they wouldn’t have had without the ventilators and then kill them off with the ventilator.

It was already known by January that this COVID virus was just like the flu, causing either no symptoms or mild, “flu-like” symptoms for most people, and the main victims who were dying were not only elderly in nursing homes, but already very sick elderly people in nursing homes who were dying anyway, and those with serious preexisting conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney disease, etc.

Unfortunately, we have psychopaths who are drawn to government power and control, and they have been fear-mongering with this COVID pandemic and for political reasons.

So, there was never any reason to order businesses and schools closed, all this irrational crap like “social distancing” and the MASKS! Absolutely NO reason for any of these things!

And I think those damn masks are making people sick! According to neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, the masks could cause oxygen deprivation and excessive carbon dioxide intake.

And the masks also have more bacteria (and germs and viruses) accumulating and being breathed in because people are reusing the masks without cleaning them first! (Even reusing a cleaned mask might also be bad.)

Becky Akers writes:

From Sal Fariello come two articles on the physical harm from wearing masks. One features his findings on this topic; the second, “Research does not support face mask orders,” comprehensively discusses the many drawbacks of and studies against wearing masks. I particularly appreciated this paragraph:

“Even in surgical settings, there is no evidence that masks protect the patient. This study by Tunevall states, ‘It has never been shown that wearing surgical face masks decreases postoperative wound infections. On the contrary, a 50% decrease had been reported after omitting face masks.’ Brosseau concludes, ‘Despite these findings, it has been difficult for surgeons to give up a long-standing practice’.”

On his blog Target Liberty Robert Wenzel pointed to studies showing how the masks are easily contaminated with viruses. And he asks just what are the gases that are being exhaled and then inhaled doing to our lungs or other areas? He cites statements by the Cleveland Clinic, and Duke University which calls the ethanol gases “toxic waste” being exhaled and then inhaled again. The ethanol gases are the same that are measured by Breathalyzers when a uniformed fascist pulls someone over to harass.

And according to a Canadian government health specialist, “Masks get saturated with moisture from the mouth and nose after about 20 minutes. Once they’re wet, they no longer form a barrier against viruses trying to come through or exit.”

Target Liberty also referenced the real reason why the mask mandates, as told by the WHO in its “Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19.”

When the WHO refers to “likely advantages of the use of masks by healthy people in the general public,” you’ll see words and phrases like, “reduced stigmatization”… “Making people feel they can play a role”…”public acceptance” …”psychological acceptance,” etc.

In other words, the real purpose of the masks is a government psy-op! The government is drilling compliance and submission into the sheeple, and the mask symbolizes the sheeple’s obediently stifling and muzzling their questioning of government edicts and intrusions!

In March WHO top official Dr. Mike Ryan stated, “There is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit. In fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly.”

However, in June the WHO changed its tune, and then advised that the general public wear a mask if “social distancing” is difficult or not possible. Hmmm.

A major problem with the kids and adults wearing the masks, besides the health risks, is the psychological effect of having an obstruction over their mouths and noses. But also small children are still developing their sense of recognition of others, especially their family members. The face coverings are complicating that development.

So, and especially given that little children’s respiratory systems are also still in the important development stages, and given that ALL people have a right to breathe in and out unobstructed air and get their required oxygen, I really think that when government bureaucrats are ordering the people to have to wear those masks, those bureaucrats really need to be arrested and charged with endangerment, child abuse, assault, terrorism, and treason as well.

On Voting Libertarian in 2020

I had written previously about the Libertarian Party’s virtual convention, in which the conventioneers decided on Jo Jorgensen to be their LP nominee for President for 2020. And I was thinking of writing more about Jo Jorgensen, even though Jacob Hornberger received many more votes than she did in the state LP primaries, and Hornberger should have gotten the nomination. But the latest with Jorgensen is a reminder that I will not be doing that.

The upcoming U.S. Presidential election will not be legitimate anyway, no matter the outcome, no matter who “wins.” We will now have “mail-in voting” (a.k.a. mail-in cheating) throughout the USSA as well as “early voting” (a.k.a. early cheating) in many states. I think that any chance of these elections having any bit of legitimacy is finished. Add to that the tech companies censoring, de-platforming, and silencing anyone who opposes “social justice” warriorism and race-based and gender-based identity politics.

That is what daily life in Amerika is all about now. The President (Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump) continues to authorize drone strikes that kill and murder mainly innocent civilians overseas, that means nothing to millions and millions of schmucks in Amerika. The President continues with the unwinnable “war on drugs” slaughtering and falsely imprisoning and/or otherwise causing the deaths of many young black males. The morons all across the country don’t care about those things. And the idiots on the other side are obsessed with the National Anthem (a horrible song!) and the American Flag, that Bozo in the White House wants a law to protect, like it’s a human being.

So the Libertarian Party giving the nomination to Jo Jorgensen when it was Jacob Hornberger who, rightly, received the most votes in the state primaries, what a joke, that Libertarian Party. They are just as much elitist hacks as the Democrat and Republican party racket.

The latest from Jo Jorgensen? She attended a “Black Lives Matter” candlelight vigil. Okay, so she’s misguided and ignorant. So? However, she tweeted: “It is not enough to be passively not racist, we must be actively anti-racist.

Robert Wenzel writes:

Why can’t someone be passively not racist? For that matter, why is it a concern of libertarians if someone is a racist but does not violate the non-aggression principle?

Why must libertarians be actively anti-racist? Why should it be demanded of us, under the libertarian banner, to be an active participant in a black public relations effort?

Really, lady, I have enough of my own problems.

I have explained before that I think racists are clowns but if these clowns are not violating the non-aggression principle why is it a concern of libertarians qua libertarians?

Further, Jorgensen, may or may not realize it, but she is jumping on the bandwagon that is being run by very shrewd Marxist revolutionaries who want to destroy capitalism.

Even if I thought there was some merit to the BLM movement, which I don’t, I would stay far away from this effort. The top operators know how to take advantage of alliances. As one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter organization put it, “We are trained Marxists.”

If you are not part of the inner circle, you are a useful idiot to them.  Jorgensen is not part of the inner circle. She is falling into a trap fighting to eliminate “systemic racism” that doesn’t exist (Not to be confused with a few random racists who do exist). BLM  is a front group, a tool, of some very strategically-skilled power-hungry communists.

What the hell is Jorgensen thinking?

Answer: She’s not.

Now, I’m not the biggest fan of Pat Buchanan, but he recently wrote about the “Black Lives Matter” phenomenon, in his article, The New “Systemic Racism” That Is Coming. Basically there are activists in the USSA who want to erase the idea of “not discriminating against someone based on race,” as well as erase that from various state constitutions and probably the Civil Rights Act, so they can institutionalize discrimination against whites and Asians.

But the “Black Lives Matter” organization is led by self-admitted Marxists who don’t believe in freedom, equal justice, due process, and a “color-blind society.” They also don’t believe in private property and freedom of association, freedom of thought and conscience and free exchange, and the libertarian non-aggression principle. They are Marxists.

People who are “libertarians” should not stand with such an organization that is opposed to all the important libertarian principles. And that’s my view on that.

So Jo Jorgensen is now insisting and demanding that we be “actively anti-racist.” Right, Jo. When these race-obsessed activists include anti-white racism as a part of being “anti-racist,” then maybe I’ll support them. When we have millions of white people who haven’t harmed anyone, who haven’t “discriminated against black people” in all their lives, then I would say that they, too, have a right to not be the target of anti-white racism just as much as innocent black people have a right to not be the target of anti-black racism. Right?

But anyway, the Libertarian Party reinforced its more recent moniker as “a joke” when they selected Jo Jorgensen as their 2020 Presidential nominee, even though Jacob Hornberger got many more votes in the primaries.

The COVID Cult

Jon Rappoport with a post on the COVID Cult. He really understands how the COVID mania now is really a cult. Here are some excerpts:

After I published several recent articles, an issue was raised. I’ll use it as an introduction to the cult of COVID.

I stated that a new COVID virus was never properly discovered. Then I was asked: so are countries all over the world pretending the virus is real?

Answer: No, they’re not pretending. “Countries” aren’t doing anything. Government leaders are issuing edicts, on the scientific and medical advice of officials surrounding them. These officials are true believers. They have faith that the COVID virus exists. Why? They’ve been told it exists by their bosses. And so it goes, all the way up the line, in the cult. Bigger and bigger bosses, all of them true believers.

Yes, a lab here and a lab there claim they have isolated the new COVID virus. But they have not done a complete STUDY to prove the existence of a new virus.

Such a study hasn’t been done, and it won’t be done.

Why? Because there is a great risk from reading the results of a thousand side by side electron microscope photos. If the photos don’t match up, if they don’t all show particles of the same virus, and if those particles aren’t unique—i.e., never before seen—then two things happen: the claim that one virus is causing a pandemic collapses; and the claim of discovering a new virus collapses.

THAT’S why the correct study hasn’t been done.

Little anecdotal claims from this lab and that lab don’t amount to a hill of beans. They’re irrelevant.

So what is left? A kernel of nothing—“the virus exists”—passed from hand to hand, shared by all, signifying Belief. Reflex Belief.

EVERYTHING that follows, stemming from a false belief in a new virus, is meaningless.

It all goes back to the beginning. That’s where the fabrication was hatched.

Before you say, BUT WHAT ABOUT THIS, HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT, read my many previous articles. I account for people getting sick and dying and being falsely labeled COVID. There is no need to invoke a new virus.

A large cult is composed of many layers of foot soldiers, all of whom believe. But when you get to the top, you see a few people who know the truth. They lie about the discovery of a new virus, and they spread that lie to further their own agenda—in this case, destruction of nations and the ushering in of a fascist technocracy for the planet, a Brave New World.

Ron Paul: Is the Texas COVID “Spike” Fake News?

Ron Paul asks, Is the Texas COVID “spike” fake news?

snip:

[Texas Gov. Greg] Abbott may have based his executive order on inaccurate information about a “rise” in Covid cases due to the Texas State Department of Health Services changing the definition of what constitutes a “Covid case.”

Thanks goes to Collin County Judge Chris Hill for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a move in mid-May to redefine what was a “Covid” case to open the door to a massive increase – all to match the mainstream media line that a “second wave” was on the way.

In a Commissioners Court hearing for Collin County on May 18th, it was revealed that while previously the determination of a Covid “case” was a confirmed test result, the definition was suddenly changed to count “probable” cases as “cases.” At the same time, the threshold for determining “probable” was lowered to a ridiculous level.

As Judge Hill said at that May 18th meeting, “If you have a subjective fever and you have a headache and you live in Collin County, you now meet the qualifications to be a probable COVID patient. It is remarkable how low the standard is now.”

Even worse, once a “probable” case was determined based on possibly unrelated subjective criteria, up to 15 people in possible contact with that “probable” case were also listed as “probable cases.” And “probable cases” were considered cases.

Repeat that farce across Texas and is it any wonder there was a “spike” in “cases”?

Also, Governor Abbott’s claim that hospitals were being over-run by Covid patients was refuted by the Houston hospital directors themselves, who said they were nowhere near actual capacity and in fact were about the same level as they were last year.

And here Ron Paul discusses the situation with Daniel McAdams. On the video’s YouTube page, they write:

The daily death count has morphed into the daily “new case” count, as 100,000 tests a day have exploded into 700,000 tests. Is it a wonder cases are increasing? But what they don’t dare mention is that deaths and even the death rate continue to decline. In fact the CDC warns that Covid is at the stage where it cannot even be classified an epidemic due to declining deaths. Still, more masks are required and petty dictators all around are calling for a return to lockdown. Can the truth ever be heard above all the lies?
