You can call me “conspiratorial” if you want to. I just believe that the truth and facts are important. So, it’s really the other way around, if you believe the lies, propaganda and claptrap of the bureaucrats in charge, their “public health” flunkies and their repeaters in the mainstream media. This whole year of Covid has been nothing but Twilight Zone stuff, and it’s being used by the crazed anti-civilization crusaders to take down our society.
On this “second wave” stuff, the “surge” in Covid “cases” or hospitalizations is not because of an increase in actual Covid “spreading” — that’s a lie and it’s being hyped, again!
But it is a surge in hysteria and panic.
People are stressed out after 7 months of being forced to stay at home, their work and school lives being torn apart with “remote” work or school, their businesses being forced to shut down or go bankrupt by fascist governors who are clueless morons, and people being made to wear those masks!
People hear the panic-inciting “news” outlets screaming repeatedly about “cases, cases, cases!” when the screamers aren’t really talking about actual symptomatic patients and hospitalizations.
What officials and “news” propagandists aren’t telling you is that “cases” refers to people who have tested positive for Covid, or just for a coronavirus, or “confirmed positive test” results even though most of the people who did test positive are asymptomatic or have mild cold or flu-like symptoms!
And what they are also not telling you is that many of those “positive test results” are false positives. And there are false negatives too, because the testing is extremely unreliable.
(And why are there so many hospitalizations? There are people who watch too much TV and 24-7 they hear “cases, cases, cases” and constant “Covid, Covid, Covid” on TV or in their social media all day long, so people are fed non-stop propaganda and fear-mongering, and there are those who feel a cough or sneeze or runny nose and they PANIC! and rush to the hospital when they are really supposed to stay home if they feel symptoms. And then we have the incompetent doctors who put these panicked people on ventilators for no good reason, because the hospital has a financial incentive to do so by government vultures, and the ventilators are largely responsible for many preventable deaths. But I digress.)
Not only all that, but most (if not all) of the states’ “public health” commissars are going with the CDC guidelines to say that even if there aren’t actual laboratory-confirmed positive Covid test results (and even if people were never tested!) you still have the leeway to consider patients “likely” or “presumed” Covid-positive. And they are using these CDC guidelines in their Covid death counts as well. The “case” counts and death counts are skewed way upward and this whole thing is a FIASCO!
(“Hmm, why haven’t I heard about ANY of this?” Well, that’s because you have been staring at your damn TV every day and getting nothing but propaganda and fear-mongering and panic-incitement from dishonest and corrupt and/or retarded government bureaucrats and their groupies in the mainstream media, that’s why!)
And the purpose of the masks is to make people feel safe and protected from COVID regardless of how useless and ineffective the masks really are, as shown from the CDC’s recent study on how people who “always” wear the masks are still getting Covid! So, the purpose of the masks is for psychological reasons.
Another possible psychological purpose of the masks, if this is on purpose, the masks obstruct children’s ability to identify others and to learn facial expressions and emotions. It is an extremely sinister and evil PSY-OP is what it is!
And people are made to wear masks regardless of the oxygen deprivation the serfs experience from the masks or other facial coverings. Oxygen deprivation contributes to cognitive decline. That’s also a contributor to Alzheimer’s or dementia especially if the Alzheimer’s patient has an arterial blockage which obstructs one’s oxygen flow through the bloodstream to the brain.
So all the millions of fearful, panicked masked sheeple out there, some of whom are already dumbed down by years of mind-numbing government-school and pop-culture indoctrination, will become even more dumbed down by the cognitive decline caused by oxygen deprivation those evil masks are causing them.
And so in my view the business closures and restaurant dysfunction, the mask orders causing especially children physical and psychological disorders, have to be on purpose. This can’t be by accident. Or do you want to call it all just a coincidental “perfect storm”?
And speaking of government schools, please don’t tell me that “Common Core” was not concocted to intentionally confuse the little kids. Please. That was intentional. Just like this phenomenon in voting called “ranked choice,” whose only purpose is to intentionally confuse the voters.
Now we have major symphony orchestras canceling their entire 2020-2021 seasons for NO GOOD REASON! Classical music is an important part of our Western culture, even though our dumbed-down pop culture society and the schools no longer even give lip service to classical music.
So with the cancellations of whole symphony orchestras’ entire seasons the anti-Western culture fanatics are getting their way. The Covid psy-op is a means to these ends, helping to tear down our entire society. This isn’t just brainwashed hooligans tearing down historical statues, this is a comprehensive tearing down of the entire Western civilized culture, to be replaced by a barbaric, Dark Ages-like society.
And what exactly will the crazed zombies replace my beloved classical music with? Rap music? And yes, “rap” music, which isn’t even music, is missing the “c,” as in “crap” music.
And no it isn’t music, “rap” is merely speaking, in a syncopated rhythm, no need to learn any musical notes, harmonies, etc. No need to learn scales. Who needs that?
And much of “rap” music (i.e. crap) is vulgar, at least whatever I’ve heard from it anyway. Violence and aggression against women, the “c word” (no, not “crap”), the “n-word,” etc. Many of these people win Grammys for their vulgarity and violence. And no, this isn’t race-related, because many “rap” “artists” are white. So there.
The culture and moral scruples of society have been declining for decades and decades, and the people of America just let it happen. Now, we are in the last stages of societal collapse.
Those who had tried to preserve whatever cultural goodness there was were called prudes, old-fashioned, not with the times. And in our decayed, declined culture a severe lack of ethics, everywhere, it seems. Mail-in voting so people can cheat more easily, government agents such as FBI and CIA treasonously going after American citizens to entrap them and frame them.
And then to further psychologically, socially and economically enslave the sheeple, we have the exploitation of a “virus” with a 99.9% survival rate, 40-80% of carriers are asymptomatic and most of those who do have symptoms have a cold or flu, basically. And for that the entire world shuts down and cowers in fear, are made to compromise their own health with breathing-obstructing face coverings. Can we survive all this?

Retired Sheriff Richard Mack is founder and president of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. He was interviewed by Dr. Joseph Mercola and some of the discussion included the sheriffs’ oath to obey the U.S. Constitution, especially in regards to the unconstitutional orders that mayors and governors have been inflicting on their respective citizens, i.e. serfs, to wear masks, socially distance or be forbidden to gather in groups of certain numbers.
Sheriff Mack mentions the importance of the officials’ oath to the U.S. Constitution (and to their respective state constitutions).
Law enforcement officers recite several different oaths when they are sworn in, I believe.
According to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor reads: “On my honor, I will never betray my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the values of my community, and the agency I serve.”
The city of Phoenix law enforcement officers, for instance, also recite the following oath: “I (state your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and defend them against enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge, the duties of a peace officer, to the best of my ability, so help me God.”
Many U.S. local law enforcement officers recite the same or similar oaths.
And when it comes to the U.S. military, as I wrote in this article,
All U.S. military enlistees swear or affirm an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same … according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice…”
Now, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or Title 10 U.S. Code Chapter 47, indicates that military personnel must obey “lawful” orders. For example, if accused of “willfully disobeying a lawful command of his superior commissioned officer,” a serviceman may be punished accordingly. And if accused of “willfully disobeying the lawful order of a warrant officer, noncommissioned officer, or petty officer,” a serviceman may be punished accordingly. And the law specifically states that one who “violates or fails to obey any lawful general order or regulation,” or who has “knowledge of any other lawful order issued by a member of the armed forces, which it is his duty to obey, fails to obey the order,” the serviceman may be punished accordingly.
Note how military personnel must obey “lawful” orders. Therefore they are not legally obligated to obey unlawful orders, by superior officers, or even by the President of the United States.
Of course, as I also noted, that would mean that all U.S. government officials, law enforcement officials and U.S. military personnel who swore an oath to support, defend and obey the U.S. Constitution are obligated to support, defend and obey ALL parts of the Constitution. And I believe that would especially apply to the Bill of Rights, the first ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which recognize some of the rights that people naturally have prior to the formation of the government that may not be violated by government officials.
In the aforementioned interview of Sheriff Richard Mack, Sheriff Mack states, “The place we start is the Declaration of Independence … So, we teach all that…And then we go into the Bill of Rights. I’m telling you, if our peace officers in this country understand that quote, ‘To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men,’ right from the Declaration of Independence, we find what the proper role of government is, and that is to secure God given rights, natural rights, our innate rights. That is the job of every peace officer in this country.”
That means that our government police and other officials may not violate our rights to the freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom from religion, the right to assembly and the right to criticize the government, the right of self-defense and the right to keep and bear arms, the right to be secure in our homes, persons, papers and effects, the right to be free from suspicion-less searches and seizures, the right to due process, the right to be free from government stealing our property, the right to be protected from false accusation with the right to face one’s accuser and require that accusers present evidence against the accused, the right to trial by a jury of one’s peers, the right to be free of cruel and unusual punishment, etc.
The Bill of Rights also includes the 9th and 10th Amendments.
The Ninth Amendment: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
In my view, we have many rights besides the ones I just mentioned, too many to be specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights. All those more specific rights are within the general category of self-ownership, and are under the general rights mentioned in the Declaration of Independence, the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
And the Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” (See the Tenth Amendment Center.)
Now, while Sheriff Mack referred to the mask mandates being unconstitutional especially because they are not actual laws but only “executive orders” by governors and mayors, and therefore should not be enforced by law enforcement officers, I wanted to briefly address the riots, assaults, acts of arson and looting in the cities that are referred to by very dishonest people in politics and the media as “peaceful protests” regardless of the rioters’ destroying those cities.
If a mayor, governor, or even a police chief orders a law enforcement officer to “stand down,” and not arrest someone clearly seen committing criminal acts of property destruction, assaulting others, setting fires to buildings, looting and stealing, then clearly such a “stand down” order is an unlawful order, because it is telling officers to stand by and be a witness to crimes but not intervene, thus making the officer aiding and abetting such criminal activities, in my view.
Such an officer obeying unlawful orders is thus violating at the very least the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor, which I quoted above, and will repeat here: “On my honor, I will never betray my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the values of my community, and the agency I serve.”
I will leave it up to you to determine whether a law enforcement officer is violating his oaths by standing by and not arresting rioters who are clearly engaged in violent, criminal activities, hurting people and destroying property and burning down buildings and businesses and stealing away the livelihoods of the people who own and built those businesses and employ others in the community.
And in regards to police chiefs, mayors, governors or the President of the United States issuing unlawful, unconstitutional orders for law enforcement officers or other government officials which violate the constitutionally-protected rights of the people, the Oath Keepers, an organization of current and former military personnel and law enforcement officers, lists the following unlawful, unconstitutional orders they pledge to not obey (each item continues with a historical context on that page):
1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people…
2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects – such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons…
3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal…
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor…
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union…
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps…
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext…
8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war…
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever…
10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances…
And that declaration of disobeying unlawful orders applies whether such orders are issued by superior officers such as police chiefs, or executives such as mayors, governors, or the President of the United States.
Law enforcement officers are obligated to obey the Constitution above obeying the President and other officers.
