Ramblings, Musings & Concerns about COVID-19
This article is just a collection of our scattered thoughts and musings on various topics relating to the COVID-19 “crisis.”
Please remember that ALL government tyranny begins with doing something in the name of “public safety” and then slowly (or quickly) lowering the hammer of oppression.
The COVID Vaccines
Would you get a COVID-19 vaccine, knowing that they are “rushing” the vaccine to market and not adequately testing for safety or side effects? We certainly would not! It’s encouraging to see that over the past few months, the percentage of Americans who would get a COVID vaccine continues to plummet.
In early May, Yahoo News conducted a poll and only 55% of Americans said they would get a COVID vaccine. By the end of May, that number had shrunk to 50%, falling to 46% by early July. By the end of July, the number had fallen to a mere 42% and it continues to nose dive.
That’s not good news for Big Pharma and everyone who stands to make a fortune by vaccinating the entire population. And it may be one of the reasons that turncoats like Dr. Norman Oliver, the current Virginia Health Commissioner, says that he’s going to “mandate” a COVID-19 vaccine for EVERY RESIDENT OF VIRGINIA when the vaccine is available.
Seriously! Is Dr. Oliver totally insane? Does he think that the patriots in Virginia are going to obey like good sheeple?
Sounds like it’s time for some … PROPAGANDA!
In order to manipulate Americans to take upcoming (rushed to market) COVID vaccine, the feds joined forces with Yale researchers to conduct clinical trials to learn how best to manipulate the public.
They came up with multiple ways to manipulate the public’s emotions to get them to comply and agree to vaccination.
Here are the multiple “angles of attack” PSA’s they’re planning:
- Personal Freedom
- Economic Freedom
- Community Interest
- Science and Authority
- Not Bravery
Amazing! They aren’t even hiding the brainwashing. They are “hidden in plain sight” for all to see how they intend to manipulate and propagandize the public into taking the COVID vaccine.
Will you succumb to this psychological abuse?
To learn more about this propaganda campaign, check out what Mike Adams has written.
While we’re discussing vaccines, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health recently proclaimed that all students in Massachusetts will be required to get the flu vaccine before the end of the year, citing the importance of reducing flu-related illnesses amid the COVID pandemic.
I wonder if Massachusetts health “officials” have read the 2017-2018 study published in the prestigious journal Vaccine (a peer-reviewed medical journal) which revealed that flu vaccines increase the risk of contracting coronavirus by 36%!
This flu vaccine mandate in Massachusetts is a “seminal moment” for the tyrants and dictators in positions of power. In light of studies like we just mentioned, if they can get that mandate passed for the flu vaccine, with almost zero resistance from the people, then they will be working fast and hard to get COVID vaccine mandates passed state-by-state at a blitzkrieg pace.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot…
On March 15, 2020 HHS Secretary Alex Azar invoked the PREP (Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act) of 2005. This gave complete immunity to vaccine developers and drug developers developing COVID-19 vaccines.
Requiring billions of healthy people to wear cloth masks is both reckless and ridiculous.
Why do we say this?
Let’s get serious here. On a fundamental level, we all understand that the size of the particle and the size of the filter matters, right? In other words, if the “teeny tiny” holes in the filter are bigger than the particle, then the particle can get through the filter. As Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife frequently used to say: “Common sense, Andy. Common sense.”
The fact is that viruses range from 0.06 to 0.125 microns, with COVID-19 being at the top of that range. However, the N95 mask only filters down to 0.3 microns, so they aren’t going to block the virus particles.
You wouldn’t put up a chain link fence to keep out mosquitoes would you?
Heck, even the warning on boxes of surgical masks states emphatically: “THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY PROTECTION AGAINST COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OR OTHER VIRUSES OR CONTAMINANTS.”
We don’t know about you, but we enjoy breathing oxygen (O2). Our brains need it. Our central nervous system needs it. We can’t live without it. On the flipside, we try to stay away from breathing too much carbon dioxide (CO2) which is a metabolic waste product produced when we exhale. That’s how God made our bodies. We tend to thrive when we inhale oxygen-rich (O2) air and exhale CO2. However, we tend to get sick if we inhale too much CO2 and too little oxygen.
So, in order to keep us well, those in “authority” are recommending that we all wear a mask so we can continually deplete our oxygen supply and increase inhalation of CO2.
Ummm … yeah …. That makes sense?
As if the “illogic” of masks weren’t enough, then there’s the “insanity” we are starting to see on airplanes. We’ve seen dozens of stories about people getting kicked off planes for failing to wear a mask, but the “Mask Nazis” on JetBlue take the cake!
They should be proud of themselves after giving the “boot” to an entire family with 7 children who were traveling from Orlando to Brooklyn. What was their crime? All six other children were masked, but the 2-year-old wasn’t. So they all got kicked off the flight! Watch the 2 minute video here.
But the insanity isn’t limited to the airlines!
At the end of July, the governor of Wisconsin ordered residents to wear masks at all times, even when they are indoors.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise to see that the head of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has ordered employees to wear face coverings during video meetings … EVEN IF THEY ARE AT HOME!
Forget what the actual medical studies say about the effectiveness of masks, all citizens must be trained to follow the orders of their government masters. That way, when the mandatory COVID vaccines are ready for market, the “dissidents” (people who demand their rights under God-given and Constitutional rights) will be the minority and will be easier to “control.”
The world has literally gone MAD!
If you still are “on the fence” about masks, we’ve written an article entitled “To Mask or Not to Mask” and recommend that you read the entire thing.
The Lack of Logic in Locking Down
In response to the perceived threat of a virus, “officials” all over the world have recklessly locked down billions of people with little to no debate, while ignoring the cost factor, a crucial component of any “cost-benefit” analysis in solving a problem.
If an alleged solution “works” but actually creates colossal collateral damage, then obviously it cannot accurately be called a “solution” and definitely should never be required or mandated.
According to an editorial by Kristina Kristen (published at Children’s Health Defense):
Draconian mandates of isolation, social distancing and masks imposed on healthy populations have never been done before. Why? The answer is simple—because an elementary calculation of potential lives saved versus the overall decimation of an entire society was a preposterous ‘solution’ to any microbe. The ‘medicine’ would be far deadlier and damaging than the ‘disease.’ The layered downstream and long-term effects of lock downs, social distancing, and mandated masks have yet to be fully revealed, but what we do know is poverty and suicide rates have sky-rocketed as 50,000,000 people have been forced into poverty in the US, alone.”
There is an incessant false dichotomy implied in the flawed assertion that ‘health is more important than wealth.’ … What seems to be lost on some is while the wealthy profit from this life force the majority live, suffer, and die by it. To make matters even worse with regard to supposed ‘benefit,’ global data now illustrate countries with full lock downs not only have massive economic collateral damage, but deaths from COVID in many cases are higher than countries with minimal to no lock downs, such as Sweden, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan— the natural “control groups” in this massive, unprecedented global experiment.
The lockdowns have been directly responsible for explosive rates of depression, suicide, domestic violence, and overdoses.
Truth be told, the lockdowns are proving to be much more lethal and debilitating than COVID-19. We were told that we needed to “flatten the curve” by locking down, but this had immense economic consequences as well.
Lockdowns have caused interruptions in supply chains, drops in consumption, increased bankruptcies, disruptions in money flows, breakdowns in transportation, and homelessness. Millions of people have lost their jobs, businesses and financial viability.
But let us ask you a question…
Did this economic crisis result from COVID-19?
Or was the COVID-19 crisis set in motion to help give cover to a long-building economic meltdown that was already well underway in the autumn of 2019?

The “New Normal” Future
If we don’t stand up against the tyranny and authoritarian edicts, it will only get worse.
But we are told that this is just the “new normal” so there’s nothing we can do.
What’s the “new normal” according to the controlled mainstream media? Social distance, wear a mask at all times, wash your hand with sanitizer, stay inside, and maintain a constant level of fear and an omnipresent atmosphere of sickness and death, as if the world were one big infectious disease ward.
According to Pastor Chuck Baldwin, who was our pastor in Kalispell, Montana:
Just as the Nazis believed they were waging a war against the “subhuman races,” the New Normals will be waging a war on “disease,” and on anyone who “endangers the public health” by challenging their ideological narrative. Like every other totalitarian movement, in the end, they will do whatever is necessary to purify society of “degenerate influences” (i.e., anyone who questions or disagrees with them, or who refuses to obey their every command).
This isn’t a joke, folks. The New Normals are serious. If you cannot see where their movement is headed, you do not understand totalitarianism. Once it starts, and reaches this stage, it does not stop, not without a fight. It continues to its logical conclusion. The way that usually happens is, people tell themselves it isn’t happening, it can’t be happening, not to us. They tell themselves this as the totalitarian program is implemented, step by step, one seemingly harmless step at a time. They conform, because, at first, the stakes aren’t so high, and their conformity leads to more conformity, and the next thing they know they’re telling their grandchildren that they had no idea where the trains were going.
What that means is that it is your responsibility to speak up, and to do whatever else you can, to stop the New Normal future from becoming a reality. You will not be rewarded for it. You will be ridiculed and castigated for it. Your New Normal friends will hate you for it. Your New Normal family will forsake you for it. The New Normal police might arrest you for it. It is your responsibility to do it anyway … as, of course, it is also mine.
The “new normal” — is there a more disgusting phrase of smug verbal assumption? We can’t think of one.
The “new normal” is predicated on lies and faulty assumptions, such as that the coronavirus is extremely lethal, or that masks are effective, or that the real enemy is being around other people, or that locking down the entire world is worth the collateral damage.
What if the entire COVID rigmarole (social distancing, masking, sheltering in place, the forced shutdowns of “nonessential” services) was unnecessary and nothing more than “security theater” and “obedience training”?
Check out the image above. Are you kidding? “Dining pods” and “clear boxes for students” and “beach corrals” are now in vogue.
It’s time to take a stand and say “NO” to the nonsense!
We don’t know when or if the “new normal” will fade back to the old normal, when people will crowd into sports arenas, stadiums, bars, restaurants, theaters, planes, and schools without an irrational fear of a virus.
But if we all refuse to obey ridiculous and reckless “orders” from the lunatics who are running the asylum, then it might happen a lot quicker than currently predicted.
