Peggy Hall on Lockdowns: Businesses Just Stay Open!!

It appears that we are in a new phase or regression back to unconstitutional fascist government orders for businesses to close or have “reduced capacity,” etc. This despite plenty of evidence that lockdowns and shutting down the economy have down WAY more harm than good. (They have done NO good at ALL!!)

Here is Peggy Hall of TheHealthyAmerican.org saying, “Businesses Just Stay Open!!!” and explaining in this rant that you own your own business, not the government, and you have a right to stay open. Government bureaucrats do not have the legal authority to order you to close or stay at home without due process. If you are in violation of actual laws, such as selling alcohol to minors, or if you have an actual restraining order against you, well that’s different. Otherwise, you have a right to go about your life, businesses stay open, and tell fascists to go jump in a lake. And she begins by directing people to her online courses and seminars, with a lengthy “epic rant” that follows.

Here is the BitChute page for that video.

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss Herr Biden’s coming fascist lockdown, that the ignorant moron Biden wants to impose for no good reason.

On the YouTube page:

Former vice president Joe Biden has been declared president-elect by the mainstream media and he is wasting no time making good on his promise to lock the country down in the name of fighting Covid. His Covid task force member Dr. Michael Osterholm is recommending a four to six week mandatory national lockdown, paid for by a massive money-printing operation. Will doing the same thing again bring different results? Also today…here’s how they are going to force you to take the Covid vaccine. And…election update: Giuliani claims 650,000 illegal ballots cast in Pennsylvania. Is he just blowing smoke?

Ron Paul on the Return of Shutdown Fascism in Amerika

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the return of shutdowns and lockdowns, and based on propaganda and fear-mongering by corrupt, psychopathic bureaucrats. On the YouTube page: “While they are cooking the books on ‘new cases’ by ramping up testing and even double-testing, half the population of the US is living in states that are actually returning to some form of shut down. The Houston hospital capacity lie has pushed Texas back into shutdown. And no one is noticing that deaths and death rates continue to decrease. Is this pandemic becoming just about politics?”

What Motivates the Bureaucrats to Act Like Psychopaths?

I don’t know whether the governors and mayors ordering businesspeople to close their businesses and ordering the people to have to stay in and not go out was intentional, like the governors knew ahead of time all the extra stress they would be inflicting on people, the further illnesses and even deaths they would be causing. I just don’t know.

It’s possible that some of them are insane psychopaths and love inflicting pain and suffering on innocent people.

Oh, goodie, look how the masses so easily obey orders and close everything down and wear ineffective masks just because we ordered them to do so, and based on our fear-mongering and making them panic…Heh, look how they’re hoarding all the toilet paper and disinfectant spray…

So power grabbing and usurping is an important factor.

And I really believe that some (or possibly a lot) of the Wall Street “panic selling” was not entirely panic selling but intentional, to cause the markets to crash as they did. Based on what I have heard or read, many of the Wall Street traders and brokers are “woke” SJWs, who share in the blind hatred of Donald Trump we see in the media and by politicians.

I can see the resentment and really the anger that a lot of Trump-hating people were feeling when seeing that some of his policies had spurred the economy, with the Dow shooting up 10,000 points since Trump became President, and the lowest unemployment rates especially for black and Hispanic Americans. It appears to me that the “woke” ones on Wall Street wanted to take all that away, at all cost.

That’s just my theory on that, that the selling off was in part intentional.

And then, besides the loony-tunes wanting to destroy society toward their socialist paradise, there are the idiots in politics who also hate Trump, like governors and mayors.

The orders by governors to close down businesses and put people out of work. You think that was all about some virus? Political hacks all across America could see their hated Trump getting reelected in November especially on his economy achievements, and they wouldn’t allow that.

Most political office holders have never actually owned their own business and have no idea what it’s like.

And the fact that millions of people would be put out of work, factories shut down, etc., whatever. “We have to defeat Trump.” There is also this desire among the brainwashed to bring on a totally government-controlled society, by destroying what we have now.

But the political hacks probably didn’t think about future food shortages in America. Like, it could never happen here. There’s always food. But we’re talking about very short-sighted thugs, frankly, who are attracted to government power and control, right?

The idiot governors and mayors are not considering the longer term consequences of their fascist and draconian policies of business shut-downs and stay-at-home orders.

Bureaucrats are narcissistic and short-sighted and only think in the short term.

Their intention is to “save lives,” by ordering businesses shut down. The short-term, immediate gratification aspect of these fascist orders is that they satisfy the bureaucrats’ lust for power and control, their Hitlerian dictator impulses. They LOVE ordering others around.

For instance, with what the bureaucrats are doing now, people do not have freedom of choice, to decide whether or not to go into a business in which they understand there may be a possible health risk doing so.

But there is always some risk in going out and about in public. There are always bacteria, germs and viruses. You just have to keep yourself well-nourished to keep your immune system strong.

The fascists do not believe the people should have that freedom of choice to take the risk. Fascists believe they know what’s best for you, and that their imprisonment orders are for your own good.

(Here is Larken Rose in a video on how the bureaucrats and government office holders actually see you, the people.)

But in the longer term the bureaucrats will cause deaths. All the heart attacks, strokes and other illnesses associated with people not having life-saving treatments and surgeries (that ironically the fascists call “elective” and “non-essential” surgeries!), and the extra STRESS these criminal bureaucrats are causing, of business owners and workers being thrown out of a job! And your f***ing little “stimulus” checks will not compensate for what is lost, for what has been stolen from them, you bureaucrat scum!

And I have heard that one motive behind the governors’ authoritarian decrees is just that: to get those $billion “stimulus” checks for their states. Many states are in near bankruptcy, and one reason is because they have so many “jobs,” and some “no-show” jobs with 6-figure salaries, that are “HACK jobs,” and those public pensions that private sector workers can only dream of.

And speaking of high unemployment levels now, are any of these government bureaucrats going to be laid off? Will any bureaucracies be cut or eliminated? Yeah, FAT CHANCE!

Especially in Massachusetts. Gov. Charlie Half-Baker protects those hack jobs and his cronies. Half-Baker is pleading to CONgress for those federal stimulus checks, even though the state had a $1 billion budget surplus in December, and has a “Rainy Day Fund” of $3.5 billion!

So the hacks in Boston want MORE from the taxpayers of Utah, Mississippi, and South Dakota! (Massachusetts state government is a “Hackarama,” as Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr calls it.)

So these politicians don’t care about “saving lives,” and if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you. They just care about power and control. And being life-long parasites.

There is one very good explanation in political economic terms by Hans-Hermann Hoppe of why government bureaucrats are so short-sighted and exploitative of public funds and feeding at the public trough as they always do, without even using a napkin.

Hoppe’s comparison is when a government is owned by the public but under the control of bureaucrats (like we have now) and when it is owned by a monarchy, in which the King or Queen is the owner of the whole territory.

Hoppe writes:

As the owner of the capital stock on “his” territory, the king will be comparatively future-oriented. In order to preserve or enhance the value of his property, he will exploit only moderately and calculatingly. In contrast, a temporary and interchangeable democratic caretaker does not own the country, but as long as he is in office he is permitted to use it to his advantage. He owns its current use but not its capital stock. This does not eliminate exploitation. Instead, it makes exploitation shortsighted (present-oriented) and uncalculated, i.e., carried out without regard for the value of the capital stock.

And:

a private government owner (a monarch) will want to avoid exploiting his subjects so heavily, for instance, as to reduce his future earnings potential to such an extent that the present value of his estate actually falls. Instead, in order to preserve or possibly even enhance the value of his personal property, he will systematically restrain himself in his exploitation policies…. In distinct contrast… public government ownership will result in continual capital consumption. Instead of maintaining or even enhancing the value of the government estate, as a private owner would tend to do, a government’s temporary caretaker will quickly use up as much of the government resources as possible….

Temporary government caretakers like Gov. Charlie Half-Baker, in other words.

So the Rulers are real psychopaths who are drawn to such positions of power over others, and spewing their fear-mongering propaganda and are literally terrorizing the people.

And because of the terrorist fear-mongering, now instead of understanding that the COVID-19 is only as serious as a flu or bad cold and while .1% to .2% of those who have it actually die, many propagandized people instead really believe that if they have it they WILL die from it! That is what fear-mongering and propaganda will do, getting people to panic in fear and submission.

And it appears that this Trump hatred combined with the fanatical followers of the dream to create a socialist paradise has hypnotized many people to act like crazed lunatics, willing to destroy the entire country.
