Phony CDC Director Propaganda; And Police State Covid “Vaccine” Passports

Robert Wenzel at Target Liberty critiques the crying new CDC director, Rochelle Walensky. She’s as phony as a $3 bill, in my view. She MUST know about the CDC’s guidelines that instruct medical personnel and otherwise handlers of death certificates to count non-Covid deaths as Covid deaths just because the deceased tested positive for Covid, and she MUST know how flawed the PCR tests are and the false positives, as I was saying just recently about Dr. Deborah Bersirx. They are all FOS bureaucrats.

And Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss “Dr.” Walensky’s meltdown here in this video from the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

From the YouTube page:

Biden Administration CDC Director Rochelle Walensky appeared to break down into tears yesterday, pleading with Americans to avoid the urge to begin living normally again as the virus continues to fade. She warns of “impending doom” if Americans begin going back to “normal.” But what about Texas and Florida? What about numbers? Science? Also today, Tyranny in the UK.

And also, Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the Covid “vaccine” Passports. In Amerika. “Your Papers, Please.” They feature an important interview of Naomi Wolf at about 7 minutes in. She warns how preventing this might be the last chance in preventing total tyranny.

From the YouTube Page:

Mainstream media is reporting that the Biden Administration is seriously looking into establishing some kind of Federal vaccine passport system, where Americans who cannot (or will not) prove to the government they have been jabbed with the experimental vaccine will be legally treated as second-class citizens. The system will quickly morph into a copy of China’s “social credit” system, where undesirable behaviors are severely punished. With Covid dying out across the country as herd immunity is reached, “vaccine passports” seems more about more government control than public health.

The Latest Covid-Shmovid Developments

What has happened in the past year? Well, there had been a lot of bureaucrat and media propaganda and fear mongering last year to brainwash the Amerikan sheeple to believe in Covid and frighten the masses to fear being near anyone who might have Covid, like it’s the Plague or Ebola, which it’s not. Far from it. Covid is just about equal to the seasonal flu, despite what the propagandist liars have been telling us.

To reiterate once again, people supposedly died of Covid mainly elderly who were already dying of serious illnesses or had serious conditions like obesity and diabetes. The Covid survival rate of elderly people, age 70 and up, is 94.6%, and otherwise the rate of survival is 99.8% according to the CDC. As I have mentioned repeatedly, the official U.S. Covid death toll, that 545,000 figure now, has been an intentional lie by the CDC who changed its guidelines on what constitutes a “Covid death” to include non-Covid deaths as “Covid deaths.” The scamdemic has been a lie from the beginning.

A lot of people say, “Well I was very sick, almost croaked,” and “I know several people who were very sick ‘with Covid’ and some died! Covid is REAL, dammit!” Well, no, not if they were given false positive diagnoses with the PCR test that gives a huge number of false positives. Chances are, in my view, many of these people had a cold or flu and such cold or flu symptoms worsened by the damn masks that cause oxygen deprivation and bacteria build-up that gets into their lungs which can cause bacterial pneumonia and can cause more inflammation and fluid accumulation, difficulty breathing, etc. My guess then is the hysterical, propagandized mask wearers felt much hysteria and FEAR that was propagandized into them by the lying, dishonest bureaucRATs and ignorant media, felt a lot of panic and rushed to doctor or hospital who gave them terrible pharma drugs or worse, a ventilator.

In many cases, in my view, the masks have been making people sick! Now, I have seen many “mainstream” websites online claiming that such assertions have been “debunked,” but really these mainstreamers are shills for Big Pharma and The Bureaucracy and they’ll debunk anything that isn’t government-approved CDC-NIH-CIA-approved official narrative. The “mainstream” websites are a part of the Covid Cult now.

And that’s another thing. I heard on the radio that people who have preexisting inflammatory issues should NOT take the Covid “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine, because the “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine actually provokes an inflammatory response! That is why many people now have had terrible reactions to the “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine.

By the way, that inflammatory illness in children associated with Covid, that is similar to Kawasaki disease? A likely cause of that is that today’s kids have been flooded and assaulted with many, many vaccines by the time they are 6! Talk about criminal.

Another item in the news is that people who have had “Covid” are complaining of lingering, post-Covid symptoms such as loss of taste and smell, numbness and anxiety. However, I think that those might very well be side effects of the pharmaceutical drugs that had been given to people being treated for Covid (or Fauxvid whatever it is), or caused by over-the-counter drugs. Are there side effects of vitamin D and zinc?

So, after the Covid nightmare seems to be winding down now and states are loosening their fascist distancing and mask mandates and other restrictions, we are now hearing about an uptick or possible new surge in “cases.” That is probably because the bureaucrats can see how the people are getting out and enjoying their freedom again — and the bureaucrats HATE that! They hate it, because The Bureaucracy is filled with psychopathic narcissists who hate to see others experiencing joy and happiness, so the BureaucRATs use their powers to try to stifle the masses and suppress their joy and freedom, out of envy and all the repressed rage that many of the deranged control freaks of The Bureaucracy have.

So I think the medical fascists are once again turning up the Cycle Threshold numbers in the CPR test results to resume the artificially inflated “case” numbers to say “there’s an uptick or new surge in cases”. They can’t let go of the powers and control they have grabbed for themselves over the people, power and control they have exploited the “Covid crisis” to grab.

And just how did putting the masses under house arrest and closing down businesses prevent Covid from killing off the entire population? As we have seen now in the comparison of freedom-loving Florida and the “blue” states led by fascist psychopaths who locked down their states, the Covid deaths were no higher in Florida (or at least per capita) than in California and its fellow “blue” states such as the Eastern Bloc states of New York New Jersey and the New England states.

Speaking of the Eastern Bloc of New England states, the new “Commerce” Secretary Gina Raimondo, former governor of Rhode Island, is really an Anti-Commerce Secretary, in her not only locking down Rhode Island and closing down businesses as governor, but directing her police gestapo to stop cars with New York license plates to demand “Your Papers, Please,” and telling them to quarantine for 14 days! Now, that’s anti-commerce if you ask me. I’m really getting fed up with all this crap, and I’m not sure how much more of this I can take, sort of like the guy on “Network” (but not that bad).

And also, speaking of fascist psychopaths, this thing with not letting churches or school choirs resume their rehearsals and concerts, because “singing lets out more droplets than just talking” and all that crap. Have you ever heard such nonsense? No, choruses and choirs and others singing are doing so because they get joy and pleasure from singing, and many people get joy and pleasure from hearing them sing. It’s another example of the BureaucRATs and rulers who can’t stand seeing people enjoying themselves and getting pleasure from the simplest activities like singing. BureaucRATs are real joyless psychopaths, in my view.

Libertarian, Bitcoin Enthusiasts Indicted by FBI in the “Live Free or Die” State

Several mostly libertarian activist bitcoin enthusiasts were arrested and indicted by FBI in Keene, NH for “wire fraud and participating in a conspiracy to commit wire fraud,” according to Robert Wenzel. Those people indicted include Ian Freeman of the Free Talk Live radio show, Colleen Fordham, Renee Spinella, Andrew Spinella, Nobody (who had changed his name from Rich Paul to “Nobody”), and Aria DiMezzo (a transgender former candidate for Cheshire County sheriff). Freeman is charged with “money laundering and operating a continuing financial crimes enterprise. Freeman and DiMezzo also are charged with operating an unlicensed money transmitting business,” according to Wenzel.

Now, I’m sure that FBI, one of the most corrupt and dishonest government agencies in Amerika, is aware of many, many people, maybe hundreds or even thousands of people, all across the country who could theoretically be charged with some sort of financial disobedience, bitcoin-related or otherwise. As Harvey Silverglate would refer to, most people unknowingly commit “Three Felonies a Day,” and all that. But clearly in my view FBI are targeting these activists for solely political reasons.

I think they are getting Freeman for his Free State Project involvement as well as otherwise in-your-face protests and demonstrations against the State. For example, Freeman’s and Nobody’s protests in front of Governor Chris Sununu’s house and the state attorney general’s house regarding Covid restrictions. They have had demonstrations or protests several times in recent months outside those horrible bureaucrats’ homes. And also, Nobody had a run for governor challenging Sununu, along with Karen Testerman. And Aria DiMezzo ran a losing campaign against the Cheshire County sheriff. I’m not familiar with the other names. So, I’m seeing some connection here. Did Sununu in some way contact crony pals associated with FBI to instigate this action? I’m not accusing Sununu of anything, only asking.

But since when do Swamp-entrenched politicians use the State apparatus, especially the national security apparatus, to go after their political opponents? I’m being sarcastic, of course. We know why the FBI went after Mike Flynn and especially Roger Stone, yet actual criminals like James Comey and John Brennan get away with their crimes.

But, sadly, that’s life here in USSA, Amerika.

OMG, I’ve been very critical of Chris Sununu, especially here and here. Does that mean that he or FBI will go after me now? No, I’m not saying that Sununu is responsible for the FBI’s bogus indictments of some local anti-State activists. I’m just saying that we know Sununu has a lot of clout, especially given his father’s connections with the Bush family and so on. I hope I’m wrong, of course.

The Sununus and the Bushes are a couple of terrible Swamp families, in my view, in addition to the Kennedys and the Clintons. Yech.

Negative Effects of Nationalism

Some whining here. I’m still working on several different posts, but lately some things have been difficult to do. Lack of sleep has not been helpful, and an issue with one of my dietary supplements, and the cold weather. I’m in my late 50s and obviously getting old. Another problem I have is that there have been soooo many issues going on now, from the ongoing Covid scamdemic to the growing fascist censorship and cultural lunacy. It’s too much.

So, I will repost an article from 2017 that has been viewed a few times recently in my blog stats. New readers may find this of interest.

The Negative Effects of Nationalism, which is an article I had on Activist Post at the time. Here is the article:

June 1, 2017

Thanks to the post-9/11 resurgence in nationalism in America, we have the “national security” apparatus turning against the very people who obediently support it, and we have escalating conflicts caused by the immigration debate.

Nationalism is a very bad thing, in my view. It is a form of collectivism, and in America it has destroyed the very basis of what America was founded on: freedom.

In immigration, for example, we have two sides of anti-freedom statists competing against one another.

On the one side are the leftist immigration extremists who want government-controlled (i.e. taxpayer-funded and approved) “sanctuary cities” and so on.

Sadly, many of these people oppose free and voluntary exchange, and they unfortunately believe in government theft of private wealth and property, who believe in wealth and income redistributionism and want to force workers and producers to have to fund the lives and activities of others involuntarily.

Why not let private charities, churches, business owners, and residents provide for and fund to help immigrants voluntarily?

On the other side are the anti-immigration collectivists and nationalists who don’t want foreigners coming to America, who want to continue the socialist, central-planning scheme of government controlling the movements of millions of people. These socialists or fascists (or social fascists) such as the awful attorney general are siccing the government police (including the federal anti-immigration police, “ICE” etc.) on the immigrants, an extremely anti-freedom way of trying to “protect” the American citizen-slaves from foreigners.

But now it seems the debate is becoming overly contentious. The leftist immigration extremists are beginning to react to the violent police state by themselves committing or threatening to commit acts of physical violence against the anti-immigration True Believer government officials, such as with the confrontations or altercations between Texas state reps Matt Rinaldi (R), Ramon Romero (D), and Poncho Nevarez (D).

Now, Rep. Rinaldi (R) claims on his Twitter profile to be “devoted to the cause of liberty,” but apparently he is one of many, many Americans who believe that only “citizens” have a right to their liberty, but not foreigners.

Like many nationalists, Rinaldi seems confused about the concept of unalienable rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness that all human beings have inherently, rights which preexist the formation of any government, and which thus preexist the formation of the concept of “citizenship.” These anti-freedom types believe in government borders far more than they believe in private property and private property rights which apply to one’s labor, business and capital as well as one’s home or wealth. These people want state governments to impose top-down authority on cities, as much as they want the feds to impose their top-down authority on the states, cities, and all the people.

And I heard Dennis Prager recently on the radio criticizing those who consider themselves “citizens of the world,” rather than citizens of their country. He said that an identity with your country should be first and foremost at the top of the list of people’s self identities. For example, as some people would say, “I am an American first. Then I am Italian, then I am a Democrat, then I am a Catholic,” etc.

Well, I am not an “American” first. I am an individual first. So, I am “me” first. And then I am a member of my family, and then I am a member of my local community. Those are the immediate priorities, in my view.

I don’t understand why people are so anti-internationalist and anti-globalist but then are such faithful and loyal nationalists, like there’s a difference as far as being a faithful member of any large political unit viewed as “important.”

But why stop there? Why is it more important that you identify with the nation in which you live, and not more with your state, town or neighborhood? So I find some inconsistency there. If we reject collectivist, top-down identities, then there isn’t much difference between saying you’re a “citizen of the world,” an “American citizen,” or a “citizen of the European Union.”

In fact, there really isn’t any difference between the European Union and the United States. Both are crumbling and collapsing before our very eyes. Both are centralized collections of nations under the rule of a top-down central-planning authority. In the beginning of the United States of America, or, between the Revolution and the ratification of a Constitution and formation of the U.S. government, the colonies were individual “nations,” or nation-states, without any connecting “national” government ruling over them after they separated from British rule.

In a society in which those unalienable rights to life and liberty, voluntary exchange and free markets, and private property rights exist, any property owner (home or business) can invite anyone else onto one’s own property. Employers would hire whomever they want, with no government permission. Workers can find a job wherever they want. As long as people are peaceful and don’t violate the persons and property of others.

Can you imagine the freedom of living one’s life without having to get a bureaucrat’s permission to do this or that?

Unfortunately, statists, centralists, nationalists, and otherwise authoritarians and collectivists don’t think that way.

And that’s just with the immigration issue.

Another example of why this nationalism and central planning stuff is really bad and very dangerous is the dependence that the masses have on the feds for “national security.”

We now have people such as the “Homeland Security” secretary himself engaging in what I would call a true act of terrorism by saying that if we knew what he knows about terrorists we’d “never leave the house.” What a schmuck, in my view. Talk about a fear-monger. And he’s so full of it, too.

The truth is actually the opposite of what these government propagandists and their media stenographers have been saying, and what most people in America believe about that whole apparatus in Washington. The truth is, U.S. Presidents have been starting wars of aggression overseas, murdering millions of innocents for decades and provoking foreigners to act against innocents in America and the West. “Intelligence” agencies especially in the U.S. and U.K. intentionally radicalize those from an already primitive and barbaric culture in the Middle East. There is plenty of proof of that most recently regarding the Manchester, England bombing. And investigative and spy bureaus have been motivating those hapless patsies within America to commit terrorist acts.

And these government bureaucrats are doing it all on purpose to “create new monsters to destroy,” to justify their government monopolies, their little fiefdoms and power trips, and especially their tax-funded paychecks, benefits and pensions. But after all these decades, they have become careless and so narcissistic in such an extreme that they are now really exposing themselves. That kind of pulling the curtain away is a breath of fresh air, isn’t it? In the end, the truth will set us free, I believe. (I hope.)

Washington bureaucrats and their enforcers are acting more and more treasonously and dangerously. So I find these recent headlines very disturbing:

Is Trump deliberately having ISIS relatives killed? (on Antiwar.com). If so, does this mean that in prosecuting other unjust laws and policies such as the drug war, will Trump have the family members of any suspects killed (as well as having suspects themselves killed, sans due process)?

The reason I’m asking can be understood by another headline: Leaked documents reveal counterterrorism tactics used at Standing Rock to defeat “pipeline insurgencies” (on the Intercept).

The feds, state and local police goons are militarizing local “law enforcement” like they are fixated in another one of their wars that the U.S. government started in the Middle East, apparently.

Besides the anti-immigration fascists and the dangerous leftist college campus purges, the “national security” apparatus has become treasonous as it has used its energies to foment terrorism against its own people. So it is time that more Americans consider a total decentralization, and it is time to stop supporting the ruling criminal racket in Washington. It is time to restore a society of peace and freedom, a society respectful of the individual’s self-ownership, private property and voluntary exchange.

The problem is that so many millions of people are indoctrinated in this nationalism thing that it might have to take an economic collapse to force them to finally let go of their dependence on and obedience to Washington. I wish there were some way to deprogram them.
