Today’s Tyrants: Maybe the Worst in Human History?

Tyrants never have credibility. They say one thing; and they do the opposite. It has always been this way, since the beginning of human civilization, or even before that. Nothing has changed.

Today’s tyrants are worse than ever. They detest capitalism; but they live off of billions, usually money made through theft or via political connections (case in point: the Biden crime family). For people who hate the system of wealth creation, they sure love their own wealth. They want their billions, but if you or I want another $50,000 in our private retirement accounts, honestly saved and earned … well, forget it. THAT money belongs to the government.

They claim to be religious or “spiritual”; yet they are ruthless and mercenary beyond description. I’m talking about the stuff they do right in front of our faces. Behind the scenes — we can only imagine. No “conspiracy theories” are necessary. These people are making laughing stocks out of the majority of us who keep rolling over and taking it because, “Why, if someone hears me saying or even implying something mean — well, they won’t like me, and I can’t have that!”

These tyrants of today scream about the evils of self-interest. Yet they sacrifice other people to themselves on a daily basis. And they LAUGH while doing it.

Let me be clear: Rationally speaking, there’s nothing wrong with self-interest. Self-interest is even a virtue, because we are all entitled to our own lives, and this requirement for self-preservation (when honored) makes us responsible for ourselves too. Paradoxically, the people who feel entitled to their own lives prosper better, and, in turn, feel more generous — even though that generosity is never a duty or obligation. It’s just something you want to do, when you can, and when you’ve done well yourself. That’s why economically free societies are far, far more generous than totalitarian, socialist ones. Even our own society, as it has become more socialist, has become more mean-spirited than ever before. That’s how it works.

Today’s tyrants are even worse than tyrants of the past. What I mean by that is they smirk, giggle and laugh as they destroy us. They know they’re hypocrites and while they don’t totally admit it, when busted they are not ashamed. They just triple down.

They’re openly, mockingly sadistic. It’s not possible for a decent person to comprehend the magnitude of the ruthlessness and evil we’re up against — sure, with the vast majority of our politicians, but also our corporate, woke “big business” socialists who (even if they made their money honestly) turn around (e.g. Bill Gates) and willfully, laughingly seek to bring the rest of us down. It’s psychopathic, cruel and every bit as evil as the Stalins and Hitlers of the past. Maybe even more so, if that’s possible. They demand that we take experimental vaccines, that we stop eating beef, that we stop driving cars, and they do it with a narcissistic, nasty, inflated sense of self-importance they expect us to take for granted. Was there EVER a royal dictator in history as bad as these corporate-political Communists of today?

We have to stand up for ourselves and, if nothing else, passively resist. Go on strike — morally, psychologically and in other ways, too. Otherwise, they’re going to bring us down with them. That’s what psychopaths do.

Get out of your slumber, people! This is not going to get better on its own.

Biden’s “Disinformation Governance Board” Brings the Orwellian Future into NOW

Biden/DemComs delivering the worst economy since 1929–maybe ever. Will they pay, or just triple down on their already illegitimate power?


When tyrants feel unsafe and vulnerable, they create “disinformation boards”.

Imagine if President Trump had created a “Disinformation governance board” through the Department of Homeland Security. The Biden regime has done exactly that. If you think we’re still a free republic, you are delusional.


Still think an election won by RINOs will save us? Think again. Operation Destroy America could not be any more on a track for success. Obama got his third term, and Biden is just the demented placeholder to sign the paperwork. By November, it won’t matter if there’s a “red wave.” And millions who will continue to vote DemCom no matter what actually WANT this. Seems like a good time to manufacture a nice little pandemic, to go with the emerging hyperinflation, escalating labor/supply/fuel shortages, and the end of economic growth.

If we HAD a second party, it would:

DEFUND schools;

DEFUND universities;

ARREST all COVID fascist mayors, governors, Presidents;

MASSIVELY cut taxes;

PRIVATIZE charity, SSI, Medicare;

Just for starters …

The U.S. is Being Pushed into Tyranny

“Without any doubt, we stand before turbulent and also dangerous times, but we hold an historic trump card in our hands. It consists in the fact that the other side does not act according to the rules of reason but strives out of motives of greed and power and therefore, cannot do anything other than bring itself into ever greater difficulties. We should use exactly that (weakness) and always keep in view, that the other side likes more money, more property and additionally, to have available all the weapons in the world. But their power is not based on their money, nor on their possessions or their weapons but relies solely upon one factor: And that is the ignorance of the majority of people. i.e., the majority doesn’t understand the evil game that this minority are playing with them.” — Ernst Wolff, August, 2021

The official Covid narrative has collapsed despite the world of lies created by the whore media and Western public health officials, but the effort to destroy human freedom continues. Dr. Robert Malone, one of the brave medical doctors who was demonized because he fought for Covid truth, names government officials, media, and tech company executives who, as acolytes and operatives of the World Economic Forum, orchestrated and sustained the “Covid pandemic” as an attack on civil liberty and human freedom. Here are some of the worst mass murderers of human history:

  • Politics and policy: White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeffrey Zients, lobby group #Masks4All co-founder Jeremy Howard, California Governor Gavin Newsom, 2020 presidential candidate and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, Chelsea Clinton, Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin, former U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the UN and USAID administrator Samantha Power, Eurasia Group founder Ian Bremmer, U.S.-British financier Bill Browder, Jonathan Soros (son of George Soros), Human Rights Watch director Kenneth Roth, economist Paul Krugman, former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, Ivanka Trump, and former U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).
  • Legacy media: CNN medical analyst Leana Wen, CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, Twitter personality Eric Feigl-Ding, New York Times financial columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos, Fox CEO and News Corp co-chair Lachlan Murdoch, Bloomberg columnist Justin Fox, and CNN commentator Anderson Cooper.
  • Technology and social media: Microsoft founder Bill Gates, former Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, and Pfizer VP Vasudha Vats.

Dr. Malone introduces us to a presentation in August 2021 by Ernst Wolff in which Wolff explains how the digital-financial complex is working to exterminate human freedom. Digital money will destroy all dissent from the elite agenda by terminating the dissenters’ financial, and thus physical, existence.

The push for digital money is as great a danger as nuclear war. The World Economic Forum has given the Canadian Banking Association the lead in the creation of digital money.

Canada’s prime minister Trudeau, having proven himself a ruthless operative against civil liberty, is regarded by the WEF’s Klaus Schwab as a true fellow Nazi.

Western peoples, hoodwinked by an orchestrated “health crisis,” have demonstrated to the ruling elite that they will sacrifice their freedom for the illusion of safety. As Benjamin Franklin said, those who will give up liberty for security will have neither liberty nor security. In the entirety of the Western World, champions of liberty hold no power positions. With the media totally in the hands of the elite, how do people become aware of the challenge that they face?

Read Malone and Wolff and ponder this question:

What a Glorious Time to be a Tyrant

The government has no rights. Only individuals do. Once the government declares war on individual rights, its legitimacy is over.

It’s a glorious time to be a tyrant.

“Emergency Acts” are the new Totalitarianism. Hitler and Stalin would approve.

Tyrants like Trudeau are brutally lawless. They don’t care about rights, votes or law. They will not go voluntarily.

“As all eyes were trained on the aggressive police sweep of the Ottawa trucker convoy this week, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau’s administration was quietly moving to implement a sweeping expansion of surveillance power at the federal level.

The Trudeau government’s financial war against the truckers has been covered at length. But one underreported aspect of this broader assault on Canadian civil liberties is the effort to bring crowdfunding and payment service providers — two of the most prominent routes for financial transactions on the Internet — under the permanent control of a centralized government authority.” [National Review 2/20/22]

Until or unless the former free world has another 1776, we’re on a straight line course to Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, North Korea, Cuba and Iran.

It’s not just Canada, either.

“New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell was pictured on Friday without a mask at the Mardi Gras Ball she hosted in Gallier Hall, several weeks after reinstating mask mandates for schools and indoor public spaces in the city, Fox News reported.”

The American Revolution was fought over less tyranny than what we see today. Yet the fools in these deep blue cities keep saying, “Hurt me more! Hurt me more!” Nothing changes. Not one of these horrible, twisted sadists in office pay any price. Ever. Neither does Trudeau in Canada. And we wonder why Russian and Chinese aggression are on the rise.

Why I Support The Canadian Freedom Protests

A dictatorship has to be capricious; it has to rule by means of the unexpected, the incomprehensible, the wantonly irrational…” – Ayn Rand

There’s a divided opinion about whether the freedom convoy is good or bad, legitimate or illegal, among rational and freedom-loving individuals. Who’s right? How is it that good, rational, freedom-loving individuals have come to completely opposite evaluations of the protests? In reading various opinions, and discussing the matter with people with whom I disagree, I believe a large part of the divide stems from the various contexts people are looking at or missing. I’m going to try to bridge that context gap below, and share my stance at the end.

Here’s a list of inhumane (not proper to an individual) treatment of Canadians by our government. Any single one of these transgressions would justify self-defense, whether through the courts or through constitutionally protected protest. The list isn’t in any particular order, and it’s not exhaustive, but it should serve to give you a very good idea of what the unvaccinated have been going through.

  • Hospitals have denied children their healthy but unvaccinated guardians;
  • Thousands of restaurants and businesses are forced to close, and are unable to remain in business; [1]
  • Employees in various industries have been put on permanent leave for choosing bodily autonomy;
  • These same employees are denied unemployment benefits. The only thing left is their savings for those who have them, with the threat of losing access to bank accounts as implied by Trudeau’s threat that “there will be consequences.”[2]
  • Businesses that would otherwise not require vaccination or masks were left with no choice but to comply or be forced to close;
  • Healthy and willing nurses are forced out of work leading to staffing shortages;[3]
  • Vital surgeries and consultations are postponed or canceled;
  • Healthy citizens are denied access to planes, trains, and boats;[4]
  • Restrictions on crossing provincial borders in your own car;
  • Citizens are restricted from leaving their medical jurisdiction;
  • Any and all vehicles can be stopped for questioning for leaving their home;[5]
  • Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter gatherings are forbidden, or restricted to only people from one other residence, and no more than 5 people total;[6]
  • Snitch lines are created to report individuals who have guests; [7]
  • Doctors are required to promote a blanket vaccination policy for all, whether or not they agree, or lose their practice;
  • Pastors are fined and jailed for holding ceremonies; [10]
  • Anti-lockdown political opponents are jailed, or kicked out of their party; [11]
  • Individuals refusing to wear a mask are fined and jailed;[12]
  • Kids are denied education and social activities;
  • 33 million cell phones are secretly tracked;[13]
  • Social media monitoring for supporters of protests; [14]
  • Home visits to those considered in support of protests;
  • Unvaccinated, pro-freedom candidates in the last federal election were barred from participating in debates across the country.

The Canadian Government’s Assault on Freedom of Speech

Trudeau has introduced various forms of censorship:

  • Bill C-4 – Makes it a punishable act to encourage heterosexual orientation, and discourage non-heterosexual orientation.[15]
  • Bill C-16 – Makes it a punishable act to misgender someone; [16]
  • Bill C-10 – Aims to regulate media and social media (still in the works). Media outlets would require a license to practice. Social media would need to pro-actively report speech violations to the government. The government would then have a choice to unilaterally press charges on the offender.[17]
  • Bill C-36 – Aims to define hate speech, and regulate its use over the internet. “hate speech is likely to foment detestation or vilification of an individual or group of individuals on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.”[18]

Every fundamental principle of a peaceful and just society is being attacked in our current political pandemic; life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness have all been under siege. The most obvious forms are bodily autonomy, freedom of association, freedom of movement, freedom of speech.

The Canadian Government’s Assault on the Mind

And if all of that weren’t enough, let’s not forget the psychologically negative impact that all of the restrictions have on a person. Try to put yourself in the shoes of someone being thwarted from participating in society for choosing not to get jabbed, or rejecting the third jab.

Imagine you’ve been terminated from your job and know that you have a slim chance of finding a new one. You’re denied the unemployment insurance taken off each of your paychecks. You’re not sure whether the medical system you’ve paid into all of your life will take care of you should you or your family need it. Wondering how long your savings will last.

“Taking Up Space” and Unknown “Consequences”

We’re a small group, but “we’re taking up space” said Trudeau.[19] Does this mean that maybe tomorrow you’ll not be permitted to enter a retail or grocery store?

The non-vaccinated we’re given a stern threat of “there will be consequences” if you don’t comply. [20]

Does that mean that your bank account will be frozen? What about your mortgage? Cut off from utilities? Will your children be taken away from you? Does it mean that you’ll be forcibly removed from your home and put in a camp? They said vaccine compliance passports would never happen, but here they are. Warnings of such forms of control were dismissed as “conspiracy theories”. Now they are here. They said healthcare would never be denied, but that wasn’t true either. How far will Canadians permit things to go?

As Ayn Rand wrote,

“It is a grave error to suppose that a dictatorship rules a nation by means of strict, rigid laws which are obeyed and enforced with rigorous, military precision. Such a rule would be evil, but almost bearable; men could endure the harshest edicts, provided these edicts were known, specific and stable; it is not the known that breaks men’s spirits, but the unpredictable. A dictatorship has to be capricious; it has to rule by means of the unexpected, the incomprehensible, the wantonly irrational; it has to deal not in death, but in sudden death; a state of chronic uncertainty is what men are psychologically unable to bear.”[21]

For those of us who made a decision about our personal risks and health concerns, all of these thoughts have and continue to cross our minds. That’s the reality that we’ve been facing for nearly two years.

Vaccination as an act of self-sacrifice

Then there’s the constant barrage of pleas to get vaccinated regardless of your particular circumstance, health status, and other considerations. It’s coming from the random folks we pass in public, it’s on signs all over the city, from every form of media, our former employers, at the family dinner table (assuming they still invite you). And the busy-body “Karens” who make it their mission to make you feel as uncomfortable as possible when the opportunity presents itself.[22]

All of this has the effect of some kind of PsyOp. It’s a nonstop bombardment insisting that you give in for the greater good because we’re all in this together.[23]

As someone who has suffered through all of these restrictions and threats, I prepared myself and my family for all of these possibilities. My life shifted from focusing on flourishing to figuring out how to survive this oppressive government.

Some freedom lovers who decided it was best for them to get vaccinated have no idea what the rest of us have been going through. You’ve been locked down too, but you’ve not felt the brunt of these restrictions on your life, livelihood, and liberty, and you’ve not had to prepare for the worst as we have.

Government-controlled media

Where’s the media in all of this? The hardships you’re facing are not being discussed or reported, and your personal posts about his sort of stuff don’t reach very far before they’re taken down.

Did you know that there has been at least one protest in Toronto every single week since the initial lockdown? Try to google it. You won’t find anything. That’s because the traditional media seems to refuse to cover the protests except for on a handful of occasions. In fact, the protesters made it a point to host a few of their protests right in front of the government-subsidized Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and CTV filming studios (the largest broadcasters in Canada).[24] Prominent Canadians, including politicians, active Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers (federal police), constitutional lawyers, and even previously arrested priests attended and gave speeches. Still, no mainstream reporters covered it. They even chanted “tell the truth” for 10 minutes right outside their buildings. Silence. What about all of the protests worldwide happening daily? The worldwide number of protestors is in the millions, but there’s no coverage.

Freedom protest is a form of self-defense

With that background, what’s my opinion of the Freedom Convoy to Ottawa, and the protesters who started their journey to the Capital of Canada on January 22nd, and who’ve been there since January 29th until now?

Are they just a bunch of anti-science, “misogynistic”, “racists” that “take up space,” upset about a policy, who are recklessly killing the economy, blocking certain streets so “innocent” people take longer to get to where they are going, illegally terrorizing and holding the city hostage… as some have described them?[25]

Why are these protesters willing to protest for weeks in the cold, be fined, jailed, have their bank accounts frozen, and what’s left of their lives be destroyed? After all, it’s just a policy. Right?

I’ll spell it out if it’s not clear already. Conscientious people are being forbidden from participating in society; they are being forced out of work, and their lives are being uprooted and destroyed. The protesters are acting in self-defense. The aggressor is Justin Trudeau’s government and his provincial lackeys. To blame the protesters for the blockades is to blame the victim. The protesters aren’t asking for handouts or favors. They are demanding that their bodily autonomy and freedom be respected. They are demanding to be treated as individuals ought to be.

The people on the ground aren’t just truckers. The truckers were the catalyst that stood up for what should have been done long ago. This is also why there’s an emphasis to call it the Freedom Convoy, not the Truckers Convoy; it’s much broader than just truckers. Today we see people from all walks of life, from every part of the country, from every profession, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, congregating in Ottawa for the cause of freedom.

But what about the sleepless Ottawans inconvenienced by the protests? My answer to that is that the purpose of the protest was clear before it reached Ottawa. Remove all restrictions and the vaccine passport, return to normal, respect our bodily autonomy. Treat us as a human ought to be treated. This is a war on the individual that was started by the Canadian government and could have been stopped by the government. We’re four weeks in and Trudeau’s approach has been to further escalate the situation. The aggressor is Trudeau, and the sleeplessness and inconvenience are on him, not the victims.

An oppressive government is empowered by its citizens

An oppressive government is empowered by its citizens. To the extent that citizens comply—go about their regular routine just to do their job, follow orders and mandates, encourage the vaccine passport by participating in it, without acknowledging the plight of its victims, without taking action to right the wrongs—they are complicit in the force initiated by the oppressive government. It’s a conversation the entire country must be a part of. The media refused to cover it, or worse. The protests have changed that; they’ve finally given visibility and a voice to the oppressed.

If ever there were a time to stand up and proclaim that we are all Spartacus, this is it.

A Wave of Tyranny

In France paramilitary forces are beating the shit out of citizens on the street. I’ve seen the footage. Brutal baton wielding attacks on young women where five or six men in black balaclavas and combat gear all attack one person who is offering no violence.

In New Zealand, a country in which many people have relatives abroad, the right to travel has been denied to such an extent that it has been described as a ‘hermit nation’. What was one of the most outward looking and internationally connected nations on Earth has become a bizarre island prison that only the extremely wealthy and politically connected may visit or leave.

In Canada, laws designed for dealing with extraordinary crisis during wartime are now invoked in order to close off entirely peaceful protests. Bank accounts are frozen arbitrarily, donations seized, the demonising might of the media unleashed to try to pretend that the most peaceful demonstrations we have witnessed anywhere in the world are a coup by far right white supremacists. Medical tyranny is in full operation, and the most fundamental right to even criticise government policy is in tatters. Only the exceptional decency of the protestors has prevented violence, which the government itself is keen to offer. It is likely that French style jackboot solutions will soon be offered to a crisis entirely of the political elites own making.

In the US, we saw thousands of troops in the capital, present for months, making Washington a militarised zone where a false, illegally installed puppet President could totter to his throne commode. We see people guilty of nothing worse than trespass still detained as political prisoners more than a year after their arrest, and tortured during that detainment. We saw an election stolen with the complicity of an entire political and judicial class, and we have seen the disastrous consequences as devastatingly idiotic policies have humiliated the US and handed global supremacy to China. Strenuous efforts are now being made to create a war with a nuclear armed Russian opponent, whilst the bewildered President of Ukraine screams at US and European leaders that the only threat of war facing his nation is the one they are manufacturing.

Typically, perhaps, the U.K. version of this wave of tyranny throughout the Anglosphere has been as farcical as it is sinister, involving a fair share of bawdy 1960s sex farce as architects of oppression like Hancock and Ferguson have been caught breaking their own rules to ‘get their leg over’. Whilst the full horrific reality of injecting kids with dangerous experimental medicines has occurred in the U.K., our unique combination of apathy and incompetence has mitigated some of the excesses seen elsewhere, more by error than design. We haven’t had any large scale brave rebellion in the Canadian mode, but the surly, unspoken, ‘fuck that’ response of not doing anything has grown. Rather than being defeated, the engines of tyranny have spluttered to a halt as somebody forgot to fill the tanks of the tanks. It may be a temporary respite, or apathy might win what activity could not.

Anyone who thinks any of the above is normal, of course, is as lunatic in their presumptions as the leaders of these nations. Centuries of standing for greater freedom than the rest of the world knows has been discarded. This alone is a tectonic shifting of the political landscape, and one whose consequences will last even where mandates do not.

We have all known scum. Scum always turn on each other, in the end. Leftists are dishonest brutes; they are simply high profile scum.


If Whoopi Goldberg quits The View, I will collapse in despair.


So Biden accidentally kills an ISIS terrorist. Now we’re supposed to forgive election fraud, censorship, medical tyranny, runaway inflation, ugly divisiveness, and losing Afghanistan?


Empowering and supporting your government to act like criminals is, morally, no better than being a criminal yourself.


IF the Democrats are crushed in the 2022 and 2024 elections, will they stand down, relinquish power and reform?

My answer: NO. However, I don’t believe they consider failure in those elections an option. They will utilize subjective voting, mail-ballots, illegal alien voting and much else only a criminal or sociopath could think up in order to ensure victory of some kind. But if their tactics fail — no, they will not stand down.


Omicron numbers down. Tyrants in a panic. “How can we scare and control people?” Evil is SO predictable.


Wherever you pass gun control, crime stays the same, or escalates. Why? “Because not every state has gun control. We must make it national! Until every part of the country has gun control, it can’t work!”

A majority get the COVID vaccine, yet we have even MORE flu and cold viruses than before. Why? “Because not everyone got the vaccine. Until we get 100 percent compliance, the vaccine won’t work!”

See a pattern here? EVERYONE must sign on for things that don’t work. That way, you don’t have to talk about it anymore.

The Drip…Drip…Drip of Tyranny

The thing about tyranny? It’s the drip-drip-drip mentality.

They get you bit by bit. That’s how an annoying, overreaching government suddenly becomes a totalitarian dictatorship. Seemingly overnight.

For example: In my current home state of Delaware, the mask mandate was reinstated last month. No real reason was given. People assumed it was Omicron. But the numbers for Omicron are way, way down. Still no mention of getting rid of it. Most likely, the mask mandate will remain for the summer season, when people crowd into a beach resort and officials can’t be accused of letting a virus spread. What if there is no virus? “Well, there COULD be!” And it’s an election year (not that Delaware’s elections aren’t already rigged.)

When the original mask mandate was lifted back in spring of 2021, even people who supported it said, “Well, that’s that. It won’t be back. And I’d be really angry, if the mask mandate ever came back.” For the first few days when the mask mandate inexplicably returned in January 2022, a lot of people were angry. And then the anger soon converted into, “Well, hopefully by the spring or summer they’ll lift it again.” Please master. Show me some mercy. Whatever you say, master. Does anybody know when or if the mandate will be lifted again? Do the tyrants in the state capital even know? Not likely. They’re just going from whim to whim; because that’s what politics and tyranny are. They are not smart people, and they are not good people. They are simply power-driven people.

Similarly, a bill has been quietly introduced in the Delaware state legislature to make the presentation of a fake vax passport a felony. But Delaware does not have a vax passport. Nobody in the state has one. So why introduce a bill making a vax passport a felony? The legislator introducing it is a crony of Biden and the state’s unrelentingly partisan governor. There has to be a reason for introducing a bill managing a vax passport not in effect. “Well,” people say. “I don’t think they’ll go THAT far.” If they DO go that far, a lot of people will be really angry. And then they’ll get used to it, saying that maybe it won’t be permanent. Drip, drip, drip.

If a totalitarian, “show your papers, wear a mask forever” government had been presented all at once, you would have experienced outrage from probably two-thirds of the population, even in a deep blue state like Delaware. But when you present it drip by drip by drip, you hypnotize people, in a sense, to tolerating what just a year or two before would have been unthinkable and intolerable.

It’s nothing new. Dictators have done this for centuries. Dictators began in earnest in the 20th Century. Mao was brilliant at in China, instituting a Cultural Revolution to override any political opposition — precisely what’s happening in America right now. America heroically fought off those dictatorships in World War II and the Cold War only to succumb themselves, starting in earnest in 2020 and continuing undisturbed at the present time. Sure, some states are worse than others. But the governors and legislators running the deep blue states are fully in charge of the federal government, at present. Sooner or later, the federal government WILL launch attacks on the red states for not conforming to the only real Party in charge, and it will be up to those states either to fight — or submit. And, as our experience with President Trump taught us, the Deep State bureaucracy is firmly entrenched with the same people who run the deep blue states. And those entrenched fascists/Communists will be there in the unlikely event that a Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis wins the presidency in 2024 AND the Deep State allows it to happen. My guess is they will NEVER allow 2016 to happen again, especially after their huge success in 2020.

Increasingly, I see no way out of this other than secession or breaking up of some kind. The Bill of Rights is no longer in operation in the federal Imperial City. Frankly, it wasn’t in operation even when Donald Trump seemed to be in charge. We can try the Convention of States, and a principled stand would probably be practical and important. But let’s face it. We’re dealing with the worst dictators (at the very least) since the time of Hitler and Stalin and Mao. These people are ruthless, dishonest, and literally care nothing about anyone or anything other than their own power. They are also ideologically rigid, on top of it. They are the worst of all possible worlds — Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Castro’s Cuba, Mussolini’s Italy and the fall of the Roman Empire all rolled up into one unspeakably nasty, stinking hybrid of horror. Most don’t yet grasp just how evil they are.

They are immovable, in the worst sense of that term. We are already in a civil war. It’s just not obvious to most, at the moment; but before long, unless 100 percent of us roll over 100 percent, it’s going to be pretty obvious.

Under Medical and Other Tyranny, Am Erica’s Atlases Will Shrug

Yesterday the UK Telegraph reported that the UK is on the brink of joining the EU Covid Vaccine passport scheme. Essentially British and European peoples will not be able to leave their homes without the passport.

The propagandists for the agenda make the restriction of freedom of movement sound like a great advantage. They say that “the EU Digital Covid Certificate should make traveling in Europe easier and cheaper for British tourists.”

“The EU Digital Covid Certificate has quickly become the biggest vaccine passport scheme in the world and coves more than 40 countries, including all 27 EU states and others as far afield as Israel and Panama.”

People all over Europe, and especially in France, have been, and are, in the streets protesting this restriction on freedom of movement, but Paul Charles, a travel agent executive, claims the use of the Digital Certificate for entry to restaurants, bars and other venues in France has proved popular with the public.

Paul Charles says that “more people have got vaccinated as a result” of the restriction. Consequently the French have seen their infection rates “drop significantly because of this measure.” If this is true, it is contrary to the experience elsewhere. The data is clear that the most vaccinated countries, such as Israel, are experiencing the highest rate of new infections, and the evidence is clear that the new Covid victims are the vaccinated.

Many experts believe that the mRNA vaccine itself results in adverse reactions that are mislabeled new Covid cases and in the appearance of variants. Thus, new cases rise with vaccination. Experts say that the latest round of vaccinations will result in a new wave of fear this winter that governments will exploit to impose more societal controls.

Paul Charles says that the Digital Covid Certificate “is not for the short term. Governments are getting used to it.” In other words, the “Free West” is institutionalizing the internal passport of the Stalinist regime.

As Mike Yeadon and others have explained, the passport’s reach will be expanded to control all other aspects of a person’s existence.

Of course, many reassurances come with the introduction of the totalitarian scheme described as “public health protection.” “Our vaccination status must never be allowed to determine our ability to live freely in our democracy,” which is precisely what it does do. The scheme “only has an initial license to run for 12 months” and privacy is protected by limiting personal data “to what is necessary.”

Anyone who believes that governments give up powers rather than expand them is gullible beyond belief.

Without any doubt the “Free West” has succumbed to Global Health Security. The orchestration of a Covid Pandemic has succeeded in its aim.
