…you know, the test revealing all the alleged “cases” now being used as the rationale for continuing to extend the two-week “curve flattening” impositions of “lockdown”, masking, “social distancing”, etc…
LET’S START WITH a little review. To begin with, let’s remember that “flattening the curve” was the soft pitch back in March, so that the healthcare infrastructure would not be overwhelmed. That was the sole rationale for “lockdown”, “social-distancing”, masks and all the rest.
No one ever agreed to hunker down and let ourselves be treated as presumptive disease vectors and to let our children be conditioned with fear and denied normal healthy development as human beings in order to eliminate all chance of anyone catching the virus. Nor did we do so in order to spare germophobes and hypochondriacs the need to use adequate PPE and to personally inconvenience themselves alone until they could get vaccinated and convince themselves that they were then safe from risk of infection.
LET’S ALSO REMEMBER that there never WAS any overwhelming of the healthcare infrastructure, when all the mitigation insanity was in full swing and when none of it was. The closest thing to crowded hospitals came in the early days when the panic-mongering was most effective and those in the most poorly-educated and least-educable underclass demographic rushed into urban hospitals as soon as a bad head cold developed, certain it was the dreaded C19.
Many of those folks then ended up strapped to their beds, dosed with paralytics, and fitted with death-inducing ventilators, eventually being used to falsely inflate the alleged Covid-19 fatality figures to the great satisfaction of the panic-mongering and exploiting political and commercial interests, and the great financial benefit of the hospitals involved.
LET’S REMEMBER, TOO that 42% of the overall total of those C19 fatality figures are of the very old and sick in nursing homes to which elderly patients sick with contagious respiratory illnesses were sent by certain state governors, who apparently felt those older patients were not “essential” enough to deserve a hospital bed. These gubernatorially-installed disease vectors were likely sick with the normal seasonal flu (which doctors were encouraged to designate as C19), but that’s just as fatal a virulent illness as anything out there when installed within an elderly population– and especially an elderly population with comorbidities.
Especially let’s remember that by mid-March, and before any of the “lockdown” and masking and “social-distancing nonsense, many millions of Americans had already been infected with C19 and had had the disease runs its course completely. This wildfire of infections produced fewer than 100 fatalitiesduring its three+ months from onset to the needless imposition of panic-induced lives- and livelihoods-destroying “safety” measures which have been in place ever since, justified by steadily and dramatically-fudged numbers of purported fatalities actually reached by calling virtually every death from any cause a “C19 death” when C19 can even be speculatively imagined to be present.
That tragic but tiny case fatality rate last winter provides a true picture of the relatively harmless nature of the disease. Plainly, C19 tracks the also-massively-oversold “swine flu” pandemic a whole lot more closely than the “Spanish flu” pandemic of 1918 to which it is often hysterically likened.
Adding Another Dot To Connect In The Chain
IN MAY, THE HYSTERIA WANED SOMEWHAT, at least among medical professionals. Calmer heads pulled back on the practice of reporting every patient with symptoms of a bad head cold a C19 victim, and the deaths of any so distinguished, even if from a decades-old condition of COPD or diabetes or heart disease, as a C19 death.
With the reportable death toll falling as a consequence of the calm-down, the existing rationale for perpetuating the oppressive and ruinous “lockdown” measures became fragile. At the same time, the importance of maintaining the panic and letting a “new normal” settle in past the point of hard questions being given a fair hearing grew, as those responsible for the unwarranted “mitigation” measures realized their indefensible culpability for many deaths and an unprecedented ruination of lives, all committed in defiance of the law.
So, a replacement rationale was quickly queued-up. Now the excuse is a purportedly burgeoning number of “cases”– meant to be taken as outbreak of infections which could, we are to imagine, flare into life-threatening severity in great numbers of people at any moment.
However, just as the number of C19 fatalities has been grossly over-stated, so too is the alleged proliferation of “cases”.
YOU SEE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE TOUTED “CASES” are based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests. PCR tests, while capable of indicating that a person has had the C19 virus in them (or molecules of the virus, at least), are ONLY able to make that singular determination. It is incapable of determining that the test subject is sick with the disease, or how long ago that person’s exposure (and likely infection, considering the purported virulence of this pathogen) occurred.
Here is a statement on the limited character and capabilities of the PCR test by Kary Mullis, its Nobel laureate inventor (speaking at the time about its utility in HIV detection):
SO, PCR TESTS DO NOT INDICATE the presence of actual infection. More significant still in debunking the false “outbreak” narrative these tests are being fraudulently used to support is the fact that the test is also incapable of indicating WHEN an exposure/infection took place.
Let that sink in: PCR tests cannot be called upon to show the onset or occurrence of any “outbreak”. Thus, PCR test results, even lots of “positives” from the same area, cannot serve as justifications for continued fear or persistence of supposed mitigation measures, such as “lockdowns”, masking, or “social distancing”.
As likely as not, every such “positive” simply means that the subject was among the 36 – 51 million Americans which we know were exposed to C19 during the winter of 2020 and came through unscathed– without hospitalization or even merely a visit to the doctor, in most cases. Thus, every such “positive” just confirms that massive exposure during the winter, and underscores and emphasizes the pointlessness of mitigation impositions in regard to an illness thoroughly shown to be relatively harmless.
Already-ailing seniors, and the elderly in general, need to take steps to protect themselves from infection, to be sure– just as the same groups have always had to take steps to protect themselves from seasonal flu infections, which are just as deadly to these vulnerable populations.
But everyone else can and should unmask.
Everyone else should hug their neighbors, re-open their businesses and return everything in America to its fashions and practices of this time last year as quickly as possible.
Contrary to the spin of the panic-beneficiaries, every “case” that is announced on the news makes this more and more clear.
I’M GOING TO CLOSE this article with two videos. In the first a German attorney announces and explains an international coalition of legal professionals which is preparing class action lawsuits against the continuation of the fraud-based “mitigation” impositions and those behind them. A lot of good information and perspective is presented here, in a very cool and businesslike fashion. It’s well worth the 49 minutes.
In the second video (really just an audio file in a video format), the always excellent Van Morrison shares the first of a trio of “lockdown” protest songs he is releasing. Wonderful!
BTW, the legendary Morrison has been joined by the equally legendary Eric Clapton in his efforts of protest against “lockdown” madness; see the story here.
And always remember:
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
“Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked.”
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do.”
…concerning which the dialogue is more interesting in what is going unsaid than in what is being said.
THE FIRST THING TO BE SAID is that very little is being said. As of Sunday morning, more than 72 hours after the arrests were announced and 48 hours after a series of local and national news blurbs were aired and the Friday papers offered some hyperventilated police-blotter-grade reportage, the media appears to have largely let the matter drop.
I have yet to find a single bit of punditry in the alt-media upon which I am usually able to rely for at least honest, and generally courageous, commentary on newsworthy events. Nor can any MSM coverage of the matter be found that is more recent than Friday other than a batch of opinion pieces, clunky “bios” of the accused and the standard, “I never would have guessed” interviews of their neighbors offered in the Sunday Detroit Free Press.
NEXT, LET ME POINT OUT, for the sake of those who didn’t follow this story closely during its brief MSM airing, that there were actually two apparently distinct sets of arrests. One was of six suspects charged by the feds with plotting to seize Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer at gunpoint and put her on trial for treason.
The other arrests conducted at the same time were by the state of Michigan and involve accusations against seven men in which “plotting the violent overthrow of the government” is dramatically declared. However, no one in this latter group is charged with anything but “gang membership”, “threat of terrorism”, “providing material support for terrorist acts” and “carrying or possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony”.
Though more information may well change the picture eventually, this group charged by Michigan appears to have been of little more than hardcore preppers triggered by the manifest illegality of the “lockdowns”, the absurd pretexts on which they were based, and the obvious fake news by which they continued to be justified over the months. These folks seem to have concluded that some despotic plan was being rolled out and had begun doing the equivalent of digging bomb shelters and laying in supplies, which in this case involved making contingency plans and doing some training for a latter-day Lexington and Concord.
DESPITE THE LACK OF ANY distinctly-alleged connection between the two groups arrested, and the plain distinctions between them in both charges and charging authorities, all reportage that I have seen confusingly (or confusedly) mixes the two together (as in the example here). No clarification is apparently available from either federal or state officials.
In light of this seeming officially-welcomed confusion in the narrative, one has to wonder if it is not deliberate. Perhaps it is meant to clutter the landscape a bit and and obscure or make more difficult to address the context of the “arrest Gretchen Whitmer and put her on trial” offense with which the one group is charged (and to a lesser degree obscure the backstory regarding the “preppers”, as well).
Here is that obscured context: Whether Gretchen Whitmer has committed “treason” is open to legal interpretation. But it is indisputable that she and her co-conspirators have engaged in a sustained series of felonies and open defiance of the Michigan Constitution in the form of her various “lockdown” edicts, as was acknowledged just six days prior to these arrests by Michigan’s own Supreme Court (and as has been obvious from the get-go to anyone doing even the most rudimentary examination of the Constitution).
And yet, this highly significant aspect of the story is going entirely unremarked in all coverage I have seen concerning last week’s arrests.
More, Whitmer’s despotic crime-spree has done vast harm to huge numbers of people– very possibly including several thousand deaths among residents of nursing home to which contagious patients were sent on her orders, actual C19 victims denied access by Whitmer’s orders to life-saving hydroxychloroquine treatments, and incidental victims of suicide, drug overdose, domestic violence, deferred medical treatment and immune-system compromise occasioned by orders to “shelter-in-place” and “self-quarantine” and the panic encouraged by same.
Whitmer has tried to justify her illegal acts by claiming that they “saved lives”. But there is actually no evidence whatever by which that claim can be verified, and, in fact, all the evidence says otherwise.
The massive harms done, on the other hand, are established facts.
And frankly, even if it could be proven that Constitutional violations saved lives, they are still criminal acts. The Constitution provides for no “suspension” for even the best of intentions or even because a real benefit might be had to purportedly balance against the certain evil inherent in eroding the rule of law.
NOW, DON’T GET ME WRONG. None of this context-discussion is meant to suggest that a plot to kidnap Whitmer was justified, if such a plot there was.
But these facts regarding Whitmer’s actions over the last seven months are surely relevant and necessary for accurate, complete reporting and opining on the subject of these arrests. This need is illustrated by reports and interviews in which Whitmer and her supporters have gotten away with gratuitously characterizing the suspects as “anti-government” (which is to suggest they are mindless and indefensible anarchists or nihilists), when the omitted facts suggest that a much more accurate characterization might be, “anti-illegal-government”.
And yet, these facts are going entirely unremarked in all coverage I have seen concerning last week’s arrests.
Indeed, all told, the “official” confusion of charges and conflation of the two groups charged in this sudden 13-man arrest event– and the timing of the arrests, as well– seem calculated to push off the front page what had been the growing recognition of Gretchen Whitmer’s crimes (and by extension, those of other governors who issued the same illegal edicts as Whitmer, along with a number of federal public health officials and media voices who all played supporting roles in the myriad harms done).
But maybe I’m just a cynic…
I’LL CLOSE WITH MENTION OF ONE OTHER THING WHICH, while not entirely unsaid in other places where it ought to be, merits being said more loudly for special reasons in this case: We must recognize that the truth of the accusations cannot actually be known until a fair trial has been held and all the evidence presented, and in fact, we must consider it an established fact that the charges are false until a sufficiency of tested evidence has proven otherwise, if such evidence exists.
This presumption of innocence is true in all accusations of course, but even more so in this one. Here, the timing of the charges– and their obvious convenience to culpable “lockdown” offenders and their narrative managers– should raise everyone’s skeptical antennae.
Those antennae should go especially high in light of another consideration: the “Hutaree” pretense of just ten years ago. In that bit of theater– possibly engineered onto the front pages for political and spin-management reasons (and hard to see it as anything else in light of the outcome)– charges strikingly-similar to those in the instant affair were leveled against eight men and one woman in 2010, only to be ultimately found entirely bogus by the federal judge presiding over the case.
Again: Antennae up, people, and keep the whole picture firmly in focus.
P.S. I could go on to talk about the fact that, assuming the truth of the accusations, anyone feeling aggrieved by Gretchen Whitmer’s actions should never have contemplated taking the law into their own hands, but should have instead gone to Dana Nessel, Michigan’s Attorney General, and demanded that her office do its job and bring charges against Whitmer. If getting no satisfaction down that avenue, these aggrieved citizens should have then turned to the U.S. Attorney stationed in one place or another in Michigan, seeking a federal solution.
But, no. I’ll leave it to each reader to think those things through on their own.
by Jeffrey A. Tucker
Every political ideology has three elements: a vision of hell with an enemy that needs to be crushed, a vision of a more perfect world, and a plan for transitioning from one to the other. The means of transition usually involve the takeover and deployment of society’s most powerful tool: the state. For this reason, ideologies trend totalitarian. They depend fundamentally on overriding people’s preferences and choices and replacing them with scripted and planned belief systems and behaviors.
An obvious case is communism. Capitalism is the enemy, while worker control and the end of private property is the heaven, and the means to achieve the goal is violent expropriation. Socialism is a softer version of the same: in the Fabian tradition, you get there through piecemeal economic planning.
The ideology of racism posits something different. The hell is ethnic integration and race mixing, the heaven is racial homogeneity, and the means of change is the marginalization or killing off of some races. Fascism imagines global trade, individualism, and immigration to be the enemy while a mighty nationalism is heaven: the means of change is a great leader. You can observe the same about certain brands of theocratic religious traditionalism.
Each of these ideologies comes with a primary intellectual focus, a kind of story designed to occupy the mind. Think about exploitation. Think about inequality. Think about race theory. Think about national identity. Think about salvation. Each comes with its own language to signal one’s attachment to the ideology.
Most of the above ideologies are well worn. We have plenty of experience to draw on from history to observe the patterns, recognize the adherents, and refute the theories.
This year has given us a new ideology with totalitarian tendencies. It has a vision of hell, of heaven, and a means of transition. It has a unique language apparatus. It has a mental focus. It has signaling systems to reveal and recruit adherents.
That ideology is called lockdown. We might as well add the ism to the word: lockdownism.
Its vision of hell is a society in which pathogens run freely. Its heaven is a society managed entirely by medical technocrats whose main job is the suppression of all disease. The mental focus is the viruses and other bugs. The anthropology is to regard all human beings as little more than sacks of deadly pathogens. The people susceptible to the ideology are the people with various degrees of mysophobia, once regarded as a mental problem now elevated to the status of social awareness.
This year has been the first test of lockdownism. It included the most intrusive, comprehensive, and near-global controls of human beings and their movements in recorded history. Even in countries where the rule of law and liberties are sources of national pride, people were put under house arrest. Their churches and businesses were closed. The police have been unleashed to enforce it all and arrest open dissent. The devastation compares with wartime except that it was a government-imposed war on people’s right to move and exchange freely. We still cannot travel.
And remarkably, after all of this, what remains missing is the empirical evidence, from anywhere in the world, that this shocking and unprecedented regime had any effect on controlling much less stopping the virus. Even more remarkably, the few places that remained fully open (South Dakota, Sweden, Tanzania, Belarus), points out Will Jones, “lost no more than 0.06% of their population to the virus,” in contrast to high deaths lockdown New York and Britain.
…and then proceed to the afterword below…
AS ALWAYS, I HOPE YOU READ THE FEATURED OBSERVATION ABOVE in its entirety. Tucker says a lot, and all of it is important.
The most important thing to be gotten from the piece is the simple and serious-as-a-heart-attack fact that the American experiment is RIGHT NOW under the most dangerous existential threat it has ever faced– by a lot. However much the panic-campaign of the last nine months has worked to make them seem reasonable, the “lockdowns” and all other measures purportedly meant to mitigate the pretended unprecedented threat of COVID-19 (C19) are the dagger-strike at liberty and the rule of law generations of Cold Warriors mistakenly feared would come from the USSR or China.
There really IS a coup being carried out right now, on both a cultural and a legal level, and its object is your subjugation. Fail to rise against it at your peril.
I HAVE EQUIPPED ANY WHO WILL BOTHER TO DO A LITTLE READING with a package of data and analysis proving that C19 is not, and never has been, itself a meaningful threat to anyone. That data, showing 36 – 51 million C19 infections in America from December, 2019, through March, 2020, with only 97 fatalities attributable to the disease during the whole period, makes clear that the “lockdown” regime is based on a fraud and is being perpetuated for in service to an agenda, not for the sake of your safety.
It has become an abiding heartache of mine that my strenuous presentation of this illuminating, “wake up” data for months now has gone entirely unseconded by even those in this CtC community. I had expected otherwise.
I believe that if this material were widely distributed and discussed, the “lockdownism” assault (to use Tucker’s apt neologism) would be thwarted. But that happy outcome will only be possible if the material is distributed and discussed quickly.
Vigorously-promoted spin and frauds of the sort on which the “lockdownism” imposition relies become embedded and impossible to undo if allowed too much time to put down their roots. Such attacks can only be turned aside by equally vigorous and timely corrective opposition.
There is still time to save America, I think, but barely.
How things turn out is in your hands.

If you are willing to be a truth seeker the deception will eventually reveal itself. If you are willing to take responsibility to exert control over your own consciousness, the control mechanism to the collective consciousness that you had been engaged with previously, will die. It is only then it is possible to move away from the deception and begin to spiritually develop into new realms of consciousness intelligence. As you increase consciousness intelligence you will be able to learn how to navigate any kind of physical, mental, emotional challenge, any kind of death process. This breaks the mass hypnosis and spell that you had lived under. This will scare the people around you that are still connected to the consciousness matrix mind control program.

10 Mistakes to Avoid when Building an AR 15…
FULL INTERVIEW with Yuri Bezmenov: The Four Stages of Ideological Subversion (1984)
COVID-19 is as politically-charged as it is infectious. Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, the WHO, the CDC and NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci discouraged wearing masks as not useful for non-health care workers. Now they recommend wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are hard to do (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). The recommendation was published without a single scientific paper or other information provided to support that cloth masks actually provide any respiratory protection. Let’s look at the data.
The theory behind mask wearing:
- Source control: Cloth mask can trap droplets that come out of a person’s mouth when they cough or sneeze.
- Protection: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – only N95 masks
Transmission of SARS-CoV-2

From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core For other uses, see Natural law (disambiguation).
Natural law (Latin: ius naturale, lex naturalis) is a philosophy that certain rights are inherent by virtue of human nature endowed by nature, God, or a transcendent source, and can be understood universally through human reason. Historically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature to deduce binding rules of moral behavior from nature’s or God’s creation of reality and mankind. The law of nature, as determined by nature, is universal.
Natural law first appeared in ancient Greek philosophy, and was referred to by Roman philosopher Cicero. It was subsequently alluded to in the Bible, and was then developed in the Middle Ages by Catholic philosophers such as Albert the Great, and Thomas Aquinas.
Although natural law is often confused with common law, the two are distinct. Even though natural law theories have exercised a profound influence on the development of English common law, the latter is not based on inherent rights, but is the legal tradition whereby certain rights or values are legally recognized by virtue of already having judicial recognition or articulation. Natural law is often contrasted with the human-made laws (positive law) of a given state, political entity or society. In legal theory, the interpretation of a human-made law requires some reference to natural law. On this understanding of natural law, natural law can be invoked to criticize judicial decisions about what the law says, but not to criticize the best interpretation of the law itself.
Modern natural law theories were further developed during the Era of Enlightenment, while combining inspiration from the Roman law, and alongside philosophies like social contract theory. It featured greatly in the works of Alberico Gentili, Francisco Suárez, Richard Hooker, Thomas Hobbes, Hugo Grotius, Samuel von Pufendorf, Matthew Hale, John Locke, Francis Hutcheson, Jean Jacques Burlamaqui, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Emmerich de Vattel, Cesare Beccaria and Francesco Mario Pagano.
Declarationism, a legal philosophy that is considered to violate the Supremacy Clause and the Anti-Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution, argues that the founding of the United States is based on natural law. Because of the intersection between natural law and natural rights, natural law has been cited as a component in the United States Declaration of Independence, and claimed by natural law proponents thus to be incorporated into its constitution, as well as in the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789). (See: “Laws of Nature” First Paragraph Declaration of Independence)

Will President Trump Let ATF Continue To Rule By Unchecked Diktat With Honey Badger ‘Reclassification’?
BY Herschel Smith
19 hours, 32 minutes ago
What I read in this Ammoland article struck me as plausible prior to reading the article as I thought about this.
Sources also tell AmmoLand News that Associate Deputy Director Marvin Richardson, another career bureaucrat, has an ax-to-grind against pistol braces and belives they violate the NFA but doesn’t think that they have the political capital to make a move against the millions of accessories under a Trump presidency. Those inside ATF with knowledge of the situation told AmmoLand News that higher-ups at the ATF believe that they will have the political capital and cover to go after braces under an anti-gun Biden administration.
The same unnamed sources feel that the ATF agency heads are preparing for a Biden victory. They have inferred from conversations with ATF leaders that they are actively working to defeat Trump, and this move was to designed to disenfranchise gun owners just ahead of the election. Although the heads did not say this directly, three independent sources who work closely with the agency heads have verified this interference to be the unspoken truth within the highest halls of the ATF.
It’s possible that the ATF is actively trying to undermine Trump with the gun rights crowd (that has effectively already been accomplished with the bump stock ban and support for red flag laws). This would be icing on the cake.
On the one hand, this administration is getting hit in all quarters. On the other hand, it’s Trump’s job to appoint good people who understand tricks like this, and we’ve already seen his lack of good judgment in the people he appoints with whom he surrounds himself (e.g., Sessions, Comey, McCabe, Barr, McMaster, Kelly, much of his white house staff, etc.).
