The Kool-Aid Crowd and COVID

Bobblehead DollSince 2000, the US Federal Government has spent billions, if not hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to improve labels and then “educate” people into reading labels.  The laws passed have forced private businesses to spend hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars in changing labeling on packaging and products to comply.  Go to any mask package and you will find similar:Mask Packaging

Recently I sought service at a Xfinity retail store and was denied service because I cannot wear a mask.  During this outing, I received severely dirty and threatening looks and attitudes from shoppers in a Walmart, all because I cannot wear a mask.  People are becoming violent, just as the government has demanded, to anyone not toeing the government COVID line, and this behavior reminded me of the Jim Jones religious cult.

President Biden is expected to force more people to listen to him threaten and try to scare Americans into getting vaccinated.  The mayors of Boston, Chicago, and New York continue to double down on activities that have not worked since February 2020.  The governors of California, New Mexico, Michigan, and others, continue to use powers not available to them in the name of “public health emergency.”  More mask mandates, more vaccination orders, and more “green passes” to exist.  Here’s the rub, how many of these solutions have worked; honestly, look at the data from February 2020 to December 2021, and tell me how many people were saved wearing masks.

People saved from these government freedom theft mandates, I guarantee, the number is NOT statistically significant!  How do I know; Australia, essentially a large island, has the strictest policies, and Omicron was still able to get onto the island.  How do I know; COVID infected children (school age K-12) have the same risks as uninfected children.  Who is the resource for this information, The New York Times!

Real numbers, Israel has one of the highest vaccinations and boosted populations on the globe; guess what, they also have the highest spike in Omicron infections!  Europe, socialized medicine, high vaccination and boosted populations, where the Omicron and Delta variants spiked infection rates.  Think of this for a moment, populations forced by government to vaccinate, and they are still passing around COVID infections, which is precisely viral science in action!

Peer reviewed researchers in the virus infection community have shown this life cycle of viral infections repeatedly since scientists began writing down what they do.  Vaccinated people pass around strains of viral mutation, which then infect other vaccinated people, until the virus mutates itself to death.  Please, do not believe me, look up this science for yourself, and you will come to a similar conclusion.  At the end of the day the viral infection community of scientists are plotting the death of COVID as a viral infection, but government elected leaders, and the bureaucrats powering the echo chamber of political thinking, will not give up the power theft committed since Feb 2020.

Jim Jones and the Kool-Aid cult suicide has been mocked, used as case studies in group think, and represents a dark time in human psychology and the abuse of religious thinking and adherence.  Guess what, the insanity of COVID-19 is as silly, irresponsible, and dangerous as Jim Jones and his cyanide-laced grape-flavored Kool-Aid.  Senator Manchin nailed it, government is beating the “living crap” out of every citizen, the beatings are intensified by the state government, and the county and city governments.  Yet, little Joey is going to continue to threaten, cajole, beat, and denigrate people using COVID as the excuse.

Did you get the vaccination just to appease government and end the beatings?  Are you able to unmask and live your life without COVID mandates, just because you got vaccinated?  I have friends here in NM who have masked, vaccinated, and done everything the government has demanded of them to avoid the government beatings.  They caught COVID, the whole family was quarantined, and extended family still caught COVID from my friends, once the quarantine was lifted, they gathered, and the extended, vaccinated, masked family caught COVID.  The repetition of this story is exhausting and provides clear proof the government beatings, mandates, and exercised powers are NOT helping but hurting, and make the Jim Jones Kool-Aid episode even more appropriate.

The science from South Africa, where Omicron variant was identified, reports the COVID virus stays in the nose and mouth region.  Guess what, so does the common cold virus, and there has NEVER been an attempt to vaccinate against the ever changing common cold.  We, the citizens of representative government, are the owners of government and it is time we take the reigns and stop the Kool-Aid massacre.  Government should never hold the power over an individual citizen’s health, welfare, or ability to pursue happiness.  Yet, this is exactly what the government bureaucrats want you to give to the government to stop COVID.  Since February 2020, has this worked?  Answer this question as well; how much faster would herd immunity have been achieved had government done what it has done for every other Chinese virus, which is nothing?

Look at recent history, Asian Flu, Hong Kong Flu, Bird Flu A (H5N1), Swine Flu, SARS, etc. the government did nothing.  NO shutdowns, no mandates, no economic stimulus, no job losses for those not vaccinating, no Big Pharma money pump for vaccinations of dubious nature, and the world did not end.  Did some people die; yes.  Did some people get sick; yes.  But herd immunity was faster and more effective than any action the government could think would have worked.  Dear reader, to you I ask, “Are you better off for the government intervention on COVID-19?”  I know my answer, but to you I leave the question and the answer.

Now, flash forward 10-years in your mind.  The real death toll of government intervention is still being hidden, but the deaths from a dubious vaccine are scaring populations silly.  When do we ask ourselves if the forced government vaccinations are the cause for infertility, for economic destruction, and for the massacre of human dreams and lives?  Who do we blame after the money is spent and the vaccines have irretrievably destroyed wide swaths of populations?  When vaccinated children whose risk from COVID remains minimal are sick, twisted with pain, or are dying in droves with reduced life expectancies, but the government continues to defend “doing something in the face of COVID.”

If the Jim Jones religious cult comparison is not appropriate now, when will it be appropriate and concerning to every single citizen across the globe?  Do you know the phrase “Judas Goat?”  The Judas Goat is the goat that befriends sheep, and then leads them to their doom in a slaughterhouse.  Belief in the omni-powerful government is a myth and a Judas Goat, yet to not blindly follow the government mandates is to be refused employment (nurses, firefighters, doctors, police officers, etc.) to be denied service (anyone unable to wear a mask), to be refused legal protection, and be castigated as heretic.  Jim Jones’ believers did similarly to everyone not believing, and they are all dead!  Those who are skeptical of the Judas Goat, are also dead, but their fellow sheep herd went first.

I admit, from day one (October-November 2019) when I first began reading of a new viral infection killing people in China, I have been skeptical, concerned, and boring the daylights out of my wife with the reports, the history, the potential ramifications of this new viral infection.  But in my most fevered nightmares I never thought the government could assume and amass so much power without citizens becoming rebellious.  Flash forward two-years, three arrests for not being able to physically wear a mask, fines, and economical losses incalculable, and my horror is just starting, when I see the vaccinated kids, the shutdown schools, the lost opportunities and potential, and the “hits just keep coming” from government and the bureaucrats.

?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1China is using biological warfare against the world; but the Chinese government is to blame, not the people of China.  I repeat, only for emphasis, do the research yourself.  Make your own decisions.  Unlike the government, Big Tech, and the bureaucrats hungry for power, I trust you to use your freedom and powers of critical thinking.  We might not reach the exact same conclusions, but we can still respect each other, and being better informed from reputable sources improves us both.  Political party be hanged, we are humans first and we need each other.  Please, do not go quietly into that dark night like the sheep entering a slaughterhouse, following the Judas Goat who has skipped aside to miss the consequences.

Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot? – The COVID Vaccine Issue

Dont Tread On MeLet me emphasize; I am not a medical professional!  I am not providing medical advice to or not to obtain the COVID Vaccine.  I am a concerned American willing to put forward his concerns.  I am concerned about the liberties and freedoms being stolen through social fear, spun by the media hype, and pursued relentlessly by government and big Pharmaceutical companies.  Compounded by non-government organizations, businesses, and other groups, whose behavior remains inconsistent with any other viral disease in history.  Please allow me to emphasize a point that is stated in many of the peer-reviewed articles on vaccines, “Safety of these vaccines, when given in combination with other vaccines, is not proven” (section 2.1) [emphasis mine].

NO FearThis particular warning is directly copied from a published paper (2014) on HPV vaccinations in India.  Similar wording has been witnessed on every other vaccine-related research paper I have personally reviewed.  As a variable, multi-vaccines can cause additional problems that makes targeting a single vaccine provided simultaneously tricky.  This is why most vaccines in the United States are now given individually with time between injections to study the patient’s response to the vaccine.

At the start of June, the question was posed, “Was COVID-19 a dry run?”  I am still not a conspiracy theorist!  However, I have more concerns.  In conducting research last week, I found reputable sources declaring that COVID-19 was never about the viral disease itself but creating enough social turmoil to force vaccinations.  A scary and slippery slope indeed.

QuestionMany of my sources have been scrubbed from the Internet on three different search engines between Friday night and Monday morning.  Again, not a conspiracy theorist but a concerned American looking for answers.  During his 17 May 2021 address, the President informed me that since the vaccine is free (monetarily), I have no excuses left not to get the vaccine.  Except, there are still no long-term studies about this vaccine, and I have questions about the interactions between the vaccine and the prescription drugs I already take.  Worse, as a person who already suffers shortness of breath, and since the vaccine can cause shortness of breath, will the vaccine make the current problems with breathing worse?

To date, no provider or vaccine manufacturer has provided detailed data indicating one way or another on these health questions.  I want this clear; I am NOT anti-vaccine, but I need to know.  Multi-drug intoxication leads to death!  Legal drugs, illicit drugs, everyday over-the-counter drugs, and vitamins must be precisely reviewed to protect a patient’s existing health.  Except where the COVID Vaccine is concerned, none of this matters, and I want to know why.  As of 14 June 2021, The New York Times is reporting the CDC is investigating rare heart problems after COVID Vaccinations in more than 800 people.  This fact alone should cease the forced vaccinations for COVID by the FDA.  Why hasn’t the FDA acted already?

The “Reader’s Digest” version of vaccine approval.

Angry Wet ChickenI am not a legal expert or a medical professional; thus, please feel free to correct me if I get some of the details wrong here.  From 1996 to 2006, I watched the human papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine “Gardasil®” go through the FDA approval process.  I remain especially concerned about this vaccine due to the connections between the HPV human trials in India and the short- and long-term effects the Indian women have suffered since they participated in these trials.  Articles recording the HPV long-term effects are still published in peer-reviewed journals of medicine.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has statutory approval authority for all sorts of functions where foods and drugs are consumed in the United States.  Similar agencies exist in other representative governments, and the processes can be just as taxing to obtain information from.  The FDA prepared a “Vaccine Development – 101” marketing information for public release.  Which reveals nothing, hides a lot, and answers very few questions, but I included the link for your personal research.Plato 2

The FDA reports there are seven steps from the initial research and development of a vaccine in a laboratory to final approval and continuous monitoring through VAERS.  Vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) is the repository for data on vaccines approved by the FDA.  It is publicly accessible, and you can fact-check how many people have suffered from the COVID vaccine or any other vaccine.  You need to understand the statistical data, so grab your data analysis skills or a friend and deep dive to your heart’s content.

What happens after Research Ethics and Morals are sundered?

Bait & Switch 2Three years before the FDA Approval of the HPV vaccine, the Indian government excoriated the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and a local Indian health partner for ethical violations in the HPV vaccine trial.  At the time, this was big news; now, the Big Tech companies are working hard to suppress the data.  These facts are laid down as a framework of before and after for the HPV vaccine trials.  The problems with HPV have not gone anywhere, but the HPV vaccine trials were a prominent and significant moral and ethical issue until COVID came along.  As a point of reference, the HPV vaccine trials in India supplanted the Tuskegee Institute’s abuse of patients as the worse case of research ethical, moral, and legal violations.

The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) has covered the HPV vaccine Indian trials quite extensively, and complete information can be researched through their links by following this link.  The background and continuing research on HPV vaccine trials are critical to the COVID vaccine due to the mass human testing and the lack of accountability and responsibility from the parties pushing a vaccine that has left people blind, deaf, paralyzed, sterile, or dead.  The warnings for the COVID vaccine are very similar; the COVID vaccine could leave you in a number of worsened permanent injuries than suffering a couple of days with COVID; yet, COVID was indemnified, the HPV vaccine was not.  Still, those who have suffered have not even gotten a paper apology from the manufacturers, the US-Based non-profits, or the local Indian health partner.

VaccineHence, one can conclude if the population is cherry-picked, lacks sufficient resources, and is in a remote spot, medical ethics can be damned and humans tested with impunity.  The same thinking existed at Tuskegee Institute and led to the US adopting thousands of pages of ethical and legal standards for conducting human research.  Except, when fear is great enough, the media is hyping enough and peddling the Kool-Aid, and the government suspends their own rules and regulations, you can get FDA approval in record time with no long-term studies on effectiveness or even tolerances for safety.

America is in trouble when the US Constitution can be flaunted, and judges can legislate from the bench that employers can make employment contingent upon forced vaccination.  This case, and several others, will eventually end in the Supreme Court.  Will the milk toast judges, specifically appointed to protect our Constitutional Rights, waiver on the freedom and liberty clauses, or will they purchase a backbone and stand against the continued encroachment of rights and liberties in the name of kowtowing to the manipulated media and influenced government bureaucrats?  I would never have thought ObamaCare would have withstood the smell test and the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness clauses in the US Constitution, and we all know how that worked out!Why

With all the hype, media attention, and focus on the vaccine and not disease prevention, I can only ask questions.  Why is COVID being treated differently than every other viral disease in history?  Who is making money on the vaccine, and why is the vaccine being forced upon healthy populations that would do better without the vaccine?  Science abounds that claims if you are healthy, without co-morbidities, you can survive a case of COVID-19 (SARS-Cov-2), and be your immune system would be more beneficial than if you had the vaccine.  Why is everyone focused on vaccination when the mortality of this virus is significantly less than its nearest viral infection neighbor?  Why is the media focused on forced vaccinations; shouldn’t the press be pushing for revealing the truth, not drinking the Kool-Aid?

Knowledge Check!On 09 June 2021, The New York Times reported that the current COVID vaccine would “probably need booster shots.”  Why does this remind me of the continuous security updates to my computer?  Since the original COVID-19 virus is dead, what is the vaccine protecting us from?  Viruses mutate, frequently, often, and repeatedly; this is well-known to virologists who often repeat this fact in their research.  Yet, the media appear to be stuck on one variant, the original and then come up with crazy names for new variants.  Like naming weather systems and storms.  All this does is continue to spread fear and knee-jerk reactions, powered by emotional hyperbole. So why get a booster shot for a new strain?  Isn’t this a sneaky way of keeping the emergency going and emergency funding from the government flowing into Big-Pharma’s pockets?

NO MORE BS: COVID Mask Discrimination Policies and Your Health

Millstone of Designed IncompetenceThe Atlantic published an article well worth reading, “End the Hygiene Theater.”  To summarize, SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19’s official name) is an aerosol and does not survive in the outdoors or on surfaces.  Just like 99.9% of all viral infections.  Consider how much money the government mandates had wasted on power cleaning surfaces since August 2020 when the scientific peer-reviewed journals began publishing the science of aerosol viral fighting tips.

Angry Grizzly Bear15 April 2020 was a high watermark day for me; I was forced to go to the Sandra Day O’ Connor Federal Courthouse to fight three citations for not physically being able to wear a mask at the VA Hospital here in Phoenix.  My injury at the hands of the VA Police was not allowed as evidence; the policy that continues to hinder care at the VA Hospital was not allowed as evidence.  However, it was used frequently as an excuse, and my being erroneously declared a behavior problem at the VA was inadmissible as that is an internal policy of the VAMC.  The end result, I lost more money to pay the fines.

In the US Republic of America, you have the right and freedom to wear a mask if you choose. Suppose you desire that face diaper as a safety blanket, even though peer-reviewed science has found zero evidence that masks help; feel free to wear a mask.  Please understand that thousands of people cannot wear a mask due to medical conditions, medications, and other breathing problems, which means alternative health measures are needed.  Medical policies should never be written as one-size-fits-all.  The policies writers are discriminating and putting people’s health at risk.

ApathyAs my breathing has become more labored since my spinal injuries in 2002, at the hands of a First-Class Petty Officer, I have had to exercise more healthy options to keep myself safe.  I take vitamin supplements, including C & D, at both a medical professional’s request and my wife’s knowledge.  I drink tonic water, which has quinine in it, specifically the tonic water sold at Trader Joe’s, for it has no high-fructose corn syrup and less sugar than soda, so my diabetes does not take a hit.  I was told by my primary care provider, at the VA almost 10-years ago that quinine will help my nighttime leg cramps, it worked for me.

I am not a medical professional, and am not saying everyone will have the same benefits; the quinine in tonic water has helped me, and overtime I have experienced less sick time from common colds, flues, and other aerosol borne sicknesses.  Always discuss with your doctor the vitamins and drugs being taken, this is also your right and freedom!

Historically, quinine has been used as an anti-malarial drug, and is effective in calming muscle cramps, leg restlessness, and is a base ingredient in chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine.  “Use of chloroquine (tablets) shows favorable outcomes in humans infected with coronavirus including faster time to recovery and shorter hospital stay.  US CDC research shows that chloroquine also has strong potential as a prophylactic (preventative) measure against coronavirus.  Chloroquine is an inexpensive, globally available drug that has been in widespread human use since 1945 against malaria, autoimmune diseases, viruses, and various other conditions.”  Facts are coming from multiple peer-reviewed resources since 1950, including Dr. Fauci.

Angry Wet ChickenTo arrive at court, I had to walk more than ¼ of a mile from the closest parking spot to the 2nd floor mezzanine of the Federal Court House.  By the time I got through the US Marshall security buttress, I was completely out of breath, and the first words out of security’s mouth, “Where is your mask?”  I explained I have breathing problems, and they insisted I at least carry a mask to meet the “stringent judge mandated legal requirements for mask policies.”  Thankfully, they did not insist I wear the mask, as I would have become an emergency right then and there.

Leaving me with an incredible question, “How can the US Marshall’s in charge of security at a Federal Courthouse use common sense and keen observation and make executive decisions, but the VA Police on Federal Property cannot do the same?”

The answer to that question lies with the draconian leadership and the egos inherent in the VA.  Same Federal Policy regarding masks but applied with 180-degrees of separation.  The VA Police Officer who oversaw my asset forfeiture/remediation did not have a problem with my not wearing a mask the entire time we spoke.  We maintained 6’ of separation and conducted business like adults.  Yet, in the VAMC, this officer would have been under obligation first to arrest me, which always leads to me being injured, cite me, then kick me off the property.  All Federal Property, all handled by sworn legal officers possessing arrest authority, and we have two different outcomes.

Foghorn Leghorn - MedicationAs a point of reference, there are more than several hundred thousand people like me in America right now who have breathing conditions that preclude wearing a mask for personal health and safety.  Polio victims with lung scarring are especially susceptible to COVID and should not wear a mask.  I know veterans who are missing a lung, who struggle to breathe, they cannot access the VA for medical care; this is mask discrimination!  I know cancer patients who, due to the drugs and cancer, cannot wear a mask and cannot access the VA for cancer treatment; this is mask discrimination.  I am one of several thousand people on a steroid to help breathing problems, where a mask is warned against wearing for physical safety and personal health.  However, I am still denied VA Medical Care over the mask policy.  The list of medical conditions and breathing issues is endless. Still, the policy from the Federal VA Director’s office, supposedly, does not come with a line, “except for those with approved medical conditions.”  I claim allegedly, as I have yet to receive a copy of this mask mandate policy or find a copy anywhere online.  I have even gone so far as to use an FOIA request for the policy and never have received a response.

I asked a supervisor about the policy at the VAMC and was pointed to a marketing sign.  I asked a hospital director, in fact, the patient advocate director, and was told there is no official policy.  Because that would require writing things down, and the VA refuses to document anything for fear of reprisal and recrimination.  Also, a topic I have covered ad nauseam and ad infinitum in these articles to no avail, as an excuse for designed incompetence.

Never Give Up!Ask yourself this question, “Who is the primary person responsible for my health, myself, the media, the insurance companies, or the government?”  For how you answer that question will determine how you approach situations where your health is jeopardized.  We have programmable vaccines being passed off as a cure-all for a virus that makes up the common cold, yet people are still catching the common cold and testing negative for COVID.  We have had flu vaccines around since the 1930s, with mass vaccination campaigns since 1945; yet until COVID came along, we still had people dying from the flu every year!  By the way, an interesting fact, no one has caught the flu since February 2020; do you believe the COVID testing works?

America has witnessed years when the flu guessers guessed the wrong flu variant strain, and the flu vaccine people got was 100% ineffective.  Yet magically, this COVID vaccine comes along to end all those problems without long-term testing and in-depth research, and how many are lining up to get their COVID shot?  After getting the COVID jab, how many still are forced to live under COVID mandates?  See, the problem is not COVID; the problem is who controls your health decisions, the government, the media, the insurance companies, or you?

Non Sequitur - DecisionsThe discrimination we have been told all through school is “bad,” but the VAMC can mask discriminate against the population they are duty-bound to serve, and there are no legal consequences; where are the lawyers?  We have people who have been and are suffering from COVID-related vaccine sicknesses who lost their legal rights to sue the pharmacological manufacturer; where are the lawyers?  I would think the ACLU would be head over heels angry at this blatant abuse of people’s rights, except they are silent on these issues.  We have hundreds of thousands of veterans who cannot access their medical center, their doctors, and so forth due to a policy that isn’t a policy and are dying; where are the lawyers?

Dont Tread On MeWho controls your healthcare choices, you or the government?  I know my answer!
