There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "…truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity–it is simply true and that is the end of it" – Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” – Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
Now did Moses know that his end was at hand. He gave to the elders the tablets on which was written God’s law, and bade them preserve these shrined within the ark forever. He delivered his final warning and extended his blessing over all his people in passionate words of love. Then he bade them farewell amid their weeping and lamentation. He was a hundred and twenty years old, but “his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.” Sturdily and serenely he turned his face away from the nation which he had made, and following a divine command, set forth alone upon foot, out into the wilderness.
“And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho; and the Lord shewed him all the land.… And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.” That one solitary sin in the desert had debarred the leader from the promised land. Yet he felt that in this also, God was just, and he uttered no complaint.
Believer’s prayers have tremendous impact, particularly on their own faith and life.
“…, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
Prayer is the lifeblood of an intimate relationship with the Father. But believers often have questions about its power and effectiveness. Don’t hesitate to take your queries to the Lord, dig into Scripture for answers, and seek the counsel of a trusted spiritual mentor. Prayer is too important to neglect.
Will God’s plans fail if I don’t pray? God is not subservient to believers or dependent upon their prayers. The time we invest in speaking with Him involves us in the work that He is doing in our lives and in the world, but He will carry on without us. Laboring alongside the Lord is our privilege.
Does my prayer (or lack thereof) impact God’s work? I believe that Scripture indicates the answer to this question is both yes and no, depending upon the situation. There are times when God’s purpose is set. He is in control and has determined the best course. In the Old Testament, the Lord often prophesied what He would do and then brought those events to pass.
In other cases, “you do not have because you do not ask” (James 4:2). There are some good things that He holds back until we put out prayerful hands to receive them. But because God is a loving Father, He also pours our blessings that we wouldn’t even think to request.
Believer’s prayers have tremendous impact, particularly on their own faith and life. Do you understand what an awesome privilege it is to kneel before the all-powerful Father and know that He listens and will respond? God loves to be good to His children and answer their prayers.
Lord, little by little You are getting through to my befuddled mind to teach me another practical concept about living a life pleasing to You.
Lord Jesus, I know You said that in this world we would have troubles, but for some reason I really thought there would be fewer problems as I aged. That I would become wiser. But life becomes more complicated.
I wonder, Lord, is it because You need to constantly remind us that this earth is not our home . . . that we are heaven bound?
So many times I forget that people, circumstances, or things cannot give me happiness; only You can. I realize now that discouragement can be a lack of trusting You.
This day, Lord, I pray that You will enable me to trust You each time a problem arises. Whenever I get stressed, remind me to turn my eyes on You and Your sufficiency.
Having thus prepared each possible detail for the future of his people, Moses looked back over all the forty years that had passed, and his deep emotion burst forth in a great song, a death chant; for he knew his end was near. This marvelous song is full of praise of God. Its theme is always “I will publish the name of the Lord.” It describes His power and His blessings upon Israel, and the vengeances He had taken. “To me belongeth vengeance and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.”
Then the song closes in a great outcry of joy at His strength and, last of all, His mercy. “Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.”
Nothing to see here, just the world’s LARGEST search engine working in real-time to censor the phrase, ‘mass information psychosis.’ Almost as if they don’t want anyone searching out what Dr. Robert Malone said on Joe Rogan or learning for themselves what the term might mean.
By the time we looked the top article for Malone was a hit piece from The Atlantic (that Joy Reid shared) working to discredit him and his involvement with the technology behind mRNA.
This is the sort of stuff you see in a scary movie … just sayin’.
Not the first time they’ve done this and sadly, it won’t be the last.
But seeing it in real-time is something else.
Lots and lots and lots of people.
Google IS Big Tech.
No big whoop.
HA HA HA HA HA HA
Sounds like we need more and more people to do the same.
I switched my search preference over to @DuckDuckGo. Can’t figure out a reason not to.
Right? Only crazy right-wingers believe in this stuff because they’re anti-vaxx and want to sabotage Biden! REEEEEEE
And by changing quickly they mean being completely manipulated to make sure anyone searching for the term ‘mass formation psychosis’ on Google only sees articles painting anyone who believes in it as a right-wing lunatic.
Don’t mind us, we’re just adjusting our tinfoil hats.
The first seven points in this article are merely contextual background. These points are a lead up to what is coming next. The globalists know that they cannot fool the people much longer and Corona/variant/vaccine danger coverup is at hand and the globalists are preparing to go to a whole new level of death and destruction as they enhance their ability to tighten their grip upon all of humanity. This article will reveal the kill shot that will soon be coming our way and I believe that 2022 is likely the year that this will happen. Why do I believe this?
The people are growing wise to voter fraud
The radical Democrats cannot win a legitimate election
Another stolen election will produce widespread rebellion.
The globalists have to make their move and they need to do it quickly.
March 11, 2020- D-Day
To use a military analogy, D-Day (March 11, 2020 when the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus to be a pandemic threat to the world.) is complete. The troops, so to speak are ashore and moving inland as they destroy everything in its place. The globalist invasion of our country is meeting with little resistance.
A mix of protesters, New Year’s Eve celebrants, and tourists gathered in the central Stephansplatz square, with many dancing to music being blared out across the square.
While Austria had temporarily relaxed unvaccinated-only lockdown restrictions for the night, a number of other measures remained in place. These included a 10 pm curfew for restaurants, as well as a ten-person limit on gatherings for both jabbed and unjabbed alike.
This, however, did not stop thousands from attending revelries in the city centre, according to a report by Heute.
The Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitungreported that police showed up at the scene around 10 pm to ensure a peaceful celebration.
While the reports by Heute and Kronen Zeitung disagree on whether arrests were made by police during the event, both agree that the mood at the gathering was peaceful.
“The city was full, almost like it used to be,” Heutereports one witness of the night’s events said. “It was a very colourful mixture of tourists, kids, corona demonstrators, party people and a large police presence.”
So, it has been a busy week. As I prepare for getting on a plane to head back to Virginia from Austin, Texas, I am taking a moment to try to breathe and to write down some thoughts.
Yesterday, I had to take an antibody test in order to get into the studio in Austin. The good news is that my natural immunity from my last round of COVID is robust – with IgA and even IgM Antibodies present.
So, now comes a more transmissible but weaker version of the virus. We should all be celebrating! Over half of us have natural immunity. Over half of us are vaccinated. Unless we are elderly or have significant other co-morbidities, we will be fine. For many, if not most, will seem like another cold, if we notice it at all. Even the unvaccinated or COVID-19 naive person should be just find, if they don’t have significant co-morbidities.
Of course, one isn’t actually allowed to suggest these ideas on many social media platforms. One can’t be at all critical of the government pandemic response or the fearporn – such talk will get you banned, censored and branded with a scarlet letter “AV” (the dreaded “Anti-Vaxxer” label). I am not an anti-vaxxer, but I will wear this label with pride – speaking truth to power always has consequences.
So, yes back to my thoughts on Omicron – please keep taking that vitamin D3 and get your levels tested, if you haven’t already. Use a formulation that combines the D3 with Vitamins A and K. Please keep up with the zinc, vitamin C and magnesium. Work on weight control, glycemic control and please exercise! All are important.
But also celebrate! If you have had COVID– Omicron is going to be a milder version. In fact, you may not even know that you were infected.
More good news from South Africa! A new paper just out with data from hospitalized patients. The study compared hospitalized patients from Omicron (“wave 4”) compared to earlier waves.
Remember, this is hospitalized patients- so a group of people probably more like the hospitalized cohorts found in the USA. Not the general population of South Africans.
The number of patients treated in the hospitals during the same early period of each wave differed (2351 in wave 4 vs maximum 6342 in wave 3).
This implies fewer hospitalizations, as we know that Omicron is highly transmissible.
68% to 69% of patients presenting to the emergency department with a positive COVID-19 result were admitted to the hospital in the first 3 waves vs 41.3% in wave 4.
Showing that Omicron is resulting in fewer hospitalizations.
Patients hospitalized during wave 4 were younger (median age, 36 years vs maximum 59 years in wave 3; P < .001) with a higher proportion of females.
This is interesting and will need to be explored in more depth. Is this due to natural immunity of the elderly or that Omicron is a milder disease for the elderly than previous variants? Another hypothesis is that Omicron is not infecting deep lung tissue, so the elderly are having more mild disease compared to other waves. Few elderly might mean fewer overall hospitalizations but with a young median age.
Significantly fewer patients with co-morbidities were admitted in wave 4, and the proportion presenting with an acute respiratory condition was lower (31.6% in wave 4 vs maximum 91.2% in wave 3, P < .001).
Again, this is good news all around!
Of 971 patients admitted in wave 4, 24.2% were vaccinated, 66.4% were unvaccinated, and vaccination status was unknown for 9.4%.
How this relates to the population of vaccinated and unvaccinated is a little difficult, because the SA vaccine program has significantly increased the proportion vaccinated this fall.
The proportion of patients requiring oxygen therapy significantly decreased ( 17.6% in wave 4 vs 74% in wave 3, P < .001), as did the percentage receiving mechanical ventilation.
Again, very good news!
Admission to intensive care was 18.5% in wave 4 vs 29.9% in wave 3 (P < .001).
More mild disease, even in the severe cases!
The median length of stay (between 7 and 8 days in previous waves) decreased to 3 days in wave 4.
Another super indicator of mild disease!
The death rate was between 19.7% in wave 1 and 29.1% in wave 3 and decreased to 2.7% in wave 4.
This also, should make us all very happy!
Again – remember this data is for HOSPITALIZED PATIENTS ONLY!
So, don’t let the fear-porn get to you – Omicron is coming to a town, village, city, restaurant, or grocery store near you. But for the vast majority of us, we will be fine. We have tools to fight this more mild variant, and there are life-saving treatments. Just work to stay or get as healthy as you can, eat your vitamins, eat real food and go get some exercise!
I will end with a quote from F. A. Hayek, (1974 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences )
“’Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded — and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed such emergency powers to see to it that the emergency persists.”

On Dec. 23, 2021, a reader sent me a link to a video (It is apparently a few weeks old) produced by Ryland Media in association with The Irish Inquiry.
In the video, a lady named Sara Haboubi is interviewing a woman named Melissa Ciummei Iconoclast, and it is titled “Great Reset passport to economic slavery.”
Here are some important points from the video.
The real purpose of so-called “Vaccine Passports” is not the vaccination history or medical records of the vaccinated.
The real purpose is getting the data that will be required of those that want to function in the future global society and entering the information into a global trackable system (creating a Global Passport, not a Vaccine Passport).
The dollar is a fiat currency (it’s not backed by gold, silver, etc.), every fiat currency in history has collapsed, the dollar will soon collapse, and the dollar will soon be replaced by a global digital currency.
Globalists are trying to get data on everyone on earth into the global system so they can monitor and control every aspect of each person’s finances (and therefore every aspect of each person’s behavior).
Children and students are future adults, so vaccinating them is about getting data on these future adults into the global system, not about protecting them from Covid (everyone, regardless of age, must be in the global system).
Globalists are using two tactics to get people into this global system: 1) Incentives for those that co-operate, and 2) Threats of punishment for those that do not co-operate.
Those that do not co-operate will receive less money, have their money seized, be denied health care, or whatever to force them to comply. (They will not be allowed to function outside the system. That is slavery.)
Businesses must be forced to comply with the system, so small businesses are being forced to close, and they will not be allowed to reopen unless they co-operate with the globalist agenda.
Globalists are not trying to fix the current economy; they are trying to keep it alive long enough to get the new global economic system up and running.
Those that get into the system (and put their children into the system) will be in it permanently (There will be no getting out).
Know that some articles and videos get banned before my articles get posted, but readers still use Google to find them.
Here are more stories that recently made the news.
One, on Dec. 22, 2021, it was reported that a group of prominent lawyers, medical people and others has filed a legal petition with the International Criminal Court (ICC) requesting the prosecution for “crimes against humanity” of The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NAID; Dr. Anthony Fauci), Bill and Melinda Gates, The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO; Tedros Ghebreyesus), The Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF; Klaus Schwab), The Prime Min. of the UK (Boris Johnson), the CEOs of several pharmaceutical companies, and others.
According to the document, those being sued are responsible for the injury and or death of at least 395,049 people, blocking alternative safe treatments for Covid (Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, etc.), colluding to keep people from assembling and traveling, damaging the fertility of women, subjecting people to future side effects, harming people that have refused to be vaccinated (causing them to lose their jobs, go out of business), and more.
Two, concerning Covid vaccinations: on Dec. 24, 2021, everyone on the U.S. Navy ship “USS Milwaukee” was fully vaccinated, and the ship was scheduled to deploy to South America that day. Nevertheless, the ship’s deployment was paused because of an outbreak of Covid on the ship.
Three, on Dec. 19, 2021, the cruise ship Koningsdam left California on a cruise to Mexico with 1,035 fully vaccinated passengers and 874 fully vaccinated crew members on board. 2 days later, the crew members were tested for Covid, and 21 came out positive. Mexico refused to allow anyone to leave the ship.
(More: On Dec. 23, 2031, it was reported that 55 fully vaccinated crew members and passengers on the cruise ship Odyssey of the Seas have tested positive for Covid, and the ship has been denied entry to Curacao and Aruba.)
Four, concerning world government and the “Great Reset”: on Dec. 22, 2021, it was reported that the Rockefeller Foundation has released a report called “Reset the Table,” and it calls for a global central government to control the world’s food supply.
Globalists are claiming that Covid is causing millions of people to go hungry, and a global central government is needed to make the distribution of food more fair and equitable.
If globalists control the food, they will control who gets to eat, how much they get to eat, what they get to eat, etc. Those that don’t want to starve to death will be enslaved by the world government.
Five, concerning world government monitoring and controlling everything people do: on Dec. 26, 2021, a World Economic Forum (WEF) video was posted that says scientists are urging people to wash their clothes less frequently to protect the environment and help our planet.
According to the video:
Washing our clothes damages the environment by putting detergents and microfibers into waterways.
Washing our clothes too often wears them out faster and increases the amount of waste at landfills.
Jeans should be washed once a month, PJ’s once a week, underwear after every use; people should use a lower water temperature and shorter cycles.
Six, concerning perilous times with wars and rumors of wars (specifically the potential Russian invasion of Ukraine): on Dec. 23, 2021, Monte Judah presented information on his Messianic World Update that this writer has not seen anywhere else.
In recent weeks, Russia has moved perhaps as many as 175,000 troops with equipment into position for a possible attack on Ukraine in early 2022.
Pres. Biden has called Pres. Putin and threatened severe sanctions if Putin doesn’t back off.
Approximately one week ago, Russia sent an official diplomatic message to the U.S., Ukraine, and NATO with a list of demands and an ultimatum to accept them within 20 days:
Ukraine must not be allowed to join NATO.
There must be no NATO troops or nuclear weapons in Ukraine.
Russia must be allowed to keep the Crimean Peninsula and the naval base on the Black Sea that it seized and annexed in 2014.
NATO immediately rejected Russia’s demands, but Pres. Biden said he will discuss them with Pres. Putin in early Jan. 2022 (call now set for Jan. 10, 2022).
NATO doesn’t believe Biden is reliable, so NATO will not take on Russia without strong action from Biden.
Russia believes Biden is weak and will cave, but Russia appears determined to attack Ukraine and is preparing for the war to go nuclear if Biden doesn’t meet Russia’s demands.
Pres. Putin has responded by giving his military leaders access to nuclear weapons (mobile nuclear weapons plus stationary nuclear weapons in silos).
Russia is also preparing burial sites for large numbers of people that could die from nuclear radiation (normal graves are not sufficient).
(More: Last weekend, Russia pulled back 10,000 troops, and there was speculation that Putin had changed his mind. On Dec. 27, 2021, it was reported that Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister said, “We are not bluffing.”)
Seven, also concerning perilous times with wars and rumors of wars (specifically the potential Chinese invasion of Taiwan): China appears to be waiting on the winter Olympics in China and to see what Biden does about Ukraine.
If Russia can get Biden to meet its demands on Ukraine, China believes they can force Biden to meet China’s demands on Taiwan.
Biden’s defeat and withdrawal in Afghanistan now seems to leave him with just two choices: Give up Ukraine and Taiwan or go to war with Russia and China in early 2022 (and he has cut the U.S. military’s budget, forced unvaccinated military personnel to resign, gone ‘woke,’ etc.).
Eight, God said He will multiply the Jews upon the mountains of Israel (the Golan Heights and more), cause the Jews to walk upon the mountains, and give the fruit on the mountains to the Jews at the end of the age (Ezek. 36:1-12).
On Dec. 26, 2021, the Israeli cabinet unanimously approved $317 million to build new Jewish communities (7,300 housing units), improve the infrastructure, improve crop production, and encourage Jews to move to the Golan Heights in the next 5 years.
Currently, about 27,000 Jews live on the Golan Heights, and the goal is to increase the Jewish population to about 100,000 Jews.
(Update: On Dec. 27, 2021, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said Syria rejects Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights and will do everything it can to retake the area. This could play into the destruction of Damascus in one night.)
Nine, concerning the coming global hyperinflation and economic collapse early in the Tribulation Period: on Dec. 28, 2021, Glenn Beck released a video in which he says, “Almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.”
Beck said, “Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion,” and he added that “nearly 77% were bought in an all-cash transaction.”
According to Beck, the reason investors are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price is because they know what is coming, and they would rather own property than have money.
(More: Investors are buying entire communities, every house on a street; some realtors are buying many of the houses that are put up for sale. Some predict that people will be forced to rent houses in the near future because they will cost more than the average person can afford.)
(More: On Dec. 28, 2021, it was reported that home prices in the U.S. rose 18.4% between Oct. 2020 and Oct. 2021).
(More: On Dec. 29, 2021, it was reported that the price of gasoline is going up again. The current administration is deliberately hindering U.S. oil production in the name of protecting the environment from Climate Change despite the fact that the Bible clearly teaches that God—not them—controls the weather.)
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
Wayne Allyn Root battles media reporting on his 1 disagreement with former president
As usual, the liberal-biased, fake news, mainstream media are lying and misrepresenting again.
It was only days ago that I published my nationally syndicated (by Creators Syndicate) newspaper column titled, “Celebrate the Trump Christmas Miracle.” In that column, I celebrated the greatest political comeback perhaps in history. Trump is back, winning in the polls, beating President Joe Biden. He’s more popular and respected than Biden (or the pope) in polls. A majority of voters even agrees there was massive fraud in the 2020 election – including 41% of Democrats.
Trump has truly made both a political and financial comeback for the ages.

The response to my column? A total media blackout. The media just can’t afford to allow the American people to hear anything positive about Trump.
Then during that same weekend, Trump made some comments about the COVID-19 vaccine that I strongly disagreed with. It is the first issue we have ever disagreed on. I made several national television appearances to make my case. I believe he is a huge favorite to regain the White House in 2024, but the way Trump is speaking about the vaccine could turn off his base and therefore damage his prospects.
Of course, the media took this as a negative. They couldn’t wait to scream in headlines about a rift between a high-profile supporter and Trump. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
A journalist for Reuters contacted me today. Here was my response:
Advertisement – story continues below
“Good morning, Alexandra. I am a strong supporter of President Trump. Always have been. Always will be. I believe he was the greatest president of my lifetime – even better than Ronald Reagan. I believe Trump is the best economic president in history. I wish he was president right now. America would be headed in a far more positive direction. I believe the odds are very high Trump will be president again in 2024. And I’ll be his biggest supporter.
“If anyone agrees with me 70% or more on issues, we are friends and teammates. Trump and I agree 99% of the time on every political issue.
“This is the first issue I’ve ever disagreed with him on. It doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm for having him back as president one bit.
“He was a great president. He has made one of the greatest political comebacks in history as of right now. A huge majority of the country wants him back. A huge number of voters wish they could have their vote back. Biden is a disaster. I believe Trump is the prohibitive favorite to be back in the White House in 2024. I pray that happens.
“But we do disagree on this one issue: the COVID-19 vaccine. The ‘intervention’ I spoke of was simply a chance to convince Trump that he should alter his message. He deserves full credit for being a four-star general and coordinating the amazing response to COVID-19. Trump was fantastic. But he should now stress:
Advertisement – story continues below
“No. 1: The vaccine and booster after booster for everyone was not what was intended. The vaccine was only to fight a holding pattern until therapeutics could be developed. Trump had put therapeutic development on a fast track. Biden and the Dems stopped that.
“No. 2: The vaccine was never intended for those who had already had COVID-19 and have therefore acquired natural immunity. It was only intended for those at high risk and certainly NEVER for children.
“No. 3: He should stress his strong opposition to vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, mask mandates and lockdowns.
“No. 4: And, Trump would never have allowed power-crazed, control-freak politicians to use the vaccine as an excuse to destroy your business or steal your job.

“Wayne Allyn Root”
I think that about sums up my position. Trump obviously will not pivot 180 degrees from COVID-19 vaccine cheerleader to being negative about the vaccine. Nor does he have to.
But he needs to pivot now to one core message: condemning in the strongest terms how the vaccine mandate is being used to destroy jobs, businesses and lives. He needs to become the most ferocious opponent of vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, mask mandates and lockdowns.

Trump should take credit for making the vaccine available in record time, but also point out that America is about freedom and choice. Those who want it can get it because of his efforts. Those who don’t want it are free to never get it. And he must stress he will fight for our rights to freedom and choice.
Here’s perhaps the most crucial point of all for Trump to make: If “science” won’t respect or allow discussion or debate, then it’s no longer science; it’s just propaganda.
>In his book “United States of Fear,” psychiatrist Mark McDonald diagnoses the U.S. as suffering from mass delusional psychosis, driven by an irrational fear of what is now a rather innocuous virus
>The fearful overreaction didn’t have its origin in what happened in 2020. Government, corporations and powerful individuals have engaged in a systematic “grooming” effort toward irrational fear addiction for decades
>Without fear, they cannot rob us of our freedoms
>The underlying motivation of this psychological campaign has been an attack on the core structures, foundations and institutions of society in order to nurture a sense of dependency on government
>To overcome their addiction to fear, a person must still have a sense of curiosity and be willing to look at new information. If they’re not, they’re not treatable and cannot be stopped from trading their (and our) freedom for a false sense of security. So, the key is finding those who are still open and receptive to new information, so that we can reach a tipping point where there are more fearless people than fear addicted ones
“LA is a very politically-charged climate,” he says. “A lot of my patients, particularly those who would not identify as either conservative or even sincerely independent, tend to react in a very emotionally-charged way when they work with somebody who does not share their value system, and then it becomes difficult to work with them. I can’t help them …
I noticed that there was something bigger than just politics at play with the whole rise of the pandemic. About 10 to 20% of my patients, they either left abruptly without saying anything … or they argued with me. Some of them actually attacked me personally and condemned me.
A few threatened to report me to the medical board for saying such ‘horrible’ things as children should be able to breathe without a mask on their face. What I concluded after seeing the fallout from this is that those who left, those who attacked me, they really are no longer people that I can help, because really good therapeutic work, at least the work that I do, starts from a position of truth and reality.
Now, I’m not claiming to have the monopoly on truth or reality, but I certainly value it so highly that I’m not willing to sacrifice it for someone else’s emotional comfort or well-being in the moment …
The ones that stayed and those who’ve taken their places have all been far, far more committed to the work and to getting better, to healing themselves emotionally and psychologically, than any of the people that left.
So, I am in no way regretful of that decision. I think it’s made me a better clinician, a better practitioner. And most importantly, it’s enabled me to continue to speak clearly, publicly and honestly about what I think is a much more important problem than just shots and masks, which is the state of our country and how we are being controlled and manipulated by corrupt individuals and corporations.”
The Public Has Been Groomed to Fear
Fear is one of the most powerful motivators of behavior and, clearly, people’s behavior has been massively manipulated through the use of fear these past two years. The motivation behind the book was to provide a retrospective analysis and explanation for how it all happened.
“The wool wasn’t pulled over our eyes on March 15 ,” McDonald says. “What I suspected, uncovered and explained in the first third of the book is that this process actually began a long time before that.
What we’ve had, and have been suffering from, is a slow grooming effort by government, by corporations, by wealthy, powerful individuals for a number of decades … I even go back to post-World War II in my book with a very specific example for those who were growing up during those times, of the duck-and-cover exercises to protect against nuclear holocaust.
Obviously, hiding under your desk is not going to protect you from a nuclear bomb. And yet, we were all told to do this … This practice, in my view, instilled in children a sense of fear, a sense of vulnerability and a reliance on a higher power — not God, but a higher human power, usually an authoritarian power, the power of schools or officials to protect you from this very unspecified, vague … threat.”
The fearmongering about climate change and ecosystem collapse also falls under this “grooming.” “I’m not going to say the existence of pollution is not real,” he says. “However, to say that the world will end in 12 years … is not truthful.” The goal is to change people’s behavior, to instill a sense of compliance, so that resources can be reallocated.
“So, at the outset of the book, my goal is to explain: ‘How did we get to be so afraid?’ How did we get to be so capable of being fear-struck so quickly by something that very early on was clearly not a significant threat to most Americans?
Even to those for whom it was a threat … there have been very helpful, successful, cheap, effective treatments that essentially cured nearly 100% of the people who were struck by this virus. So why [the fear]?
In explaining the how and the why of how we got to this point, my hope has been that people who are perhaps not entirely brainwashed, but those who are just somewhat confused, somewhat perplexed, not entirely clear-thinking but certainly want to be, will see their thoughts organized so that they can then move to the more important step, which is what do we do about it?”
Addicted to Fear
One likely reason why outright nonsensical countermeasures have been embraced is because fear paralyzes rational thinking. People who are terrified of dying from COVID cannot comprehend how ridiculous masking is because they cannot reason their way through the problem logically. What’s more, they don’t want to. As explained by McDonald, they’re not curious at all.
“This is my little diagnostic technique: Does the person express curiosity to know something different than what he or she knows right now? If the answer is no, I don’t even go further with that person in conversation. It’s absolutely pointless …
Ambivalence is another word that we use in motivational interviewing. We assess for ambivalence. Is the person trying to hold two different, opposing positions at the same time? Because that leads to a resolution. If there’s no ambivalence at all and there’s no curiosity, I don’t really know where you start. So, I’ll ask, ‘What is it that you understand right now about what’s happening?’
If I sense some ambivalence, if I sense some lack of confidence, then I’ll ask a follow-up question. I’ll say, ‘Are you curious? Are you interested in learning about some other information or some other viewpoints that you might not be aware of right now?’
And often, if I’ve got to that point, the person will say tentatively, ‘Yeah, maybe.’ If I get, on the other hand, ‘Absolutely not,’ or more of a condemnation, ‘What do you mean? Are you one of those anti-vaxxer hoaxers?’ Then I know I’m probably not going to really proceed very successfully, so I let up. I back off … If someone’s addicted to fear, I just wait and see if they’re open and willing and ready to lose their addiction.”
In short, unless a person is open to new information, it doesn’t matter how many peer-reviewed studies you throw before them. Facts and data don’t matter if they don’t have curiosity or this ambivalence. As explained by McDonald, this is not a data war. We won that a long time ago. It’s a psychological war, and it really needs to be thought of that way.
“The goal is to take away the interest, the capacity, the comfort, both internally and also on a societal level, of men and women coming together. If men and women stop … speaking to one another, stop dating, getting married, having children, then we no longer have families. If we don’t have families, we don’t have civic organizations, churches and communities. The state then steps in and supplants the role of the father and begins to take over. ~ Dr. Mark McDonald”
“You always have to keep in mind that information and data is only as useful as the psychological state of the recipient,” he says. You could actually worsen the situation if they’re not open and receptive.
The Emasculation of Society
Another cultural factor that has played an important role is the emasculation of society. This is problematic, as this also impacts our ability to defend ourselves against the next attack on our liberties and bodily integrity.
“My concern is that the underlying motivation of this psychological campaign has been for a long time, and it is still today, an attack on the core structures, foundations, institutions of our country … Certainly in all the Anglophone countries, there has been an attack for many, many years on the core archetypes of the male and the female, the masculine and the feminine.
The goal is to take away the interest, the capacity, the comfort, both internally and also on a societal level, of men and women coming together. If men and women stop coming together, if they stop desiring one another, if they stop speaking to one another, if they stop dating, getting married, having children, then we no longer have families. We have single parents.
If we don’t have families, we don’t have civic organizations. We don’t have churches. We don’t have communities. All we have are single parents running around with their own children, relying on, most likely, government, to help keep them financially and physically safe. So, the role of the father, the role of the mother is simply eliminated.
The state then steps in and the state supplants the role of the father and begins to take over. There is a young girl who had been sexually abused by her biological father for a number of years, and eventually he impregnated her. He was arrested after a paternity test was performed.
I’ve been reviewing her therapy notes on a legal case recently, and what I’m struck by is that now, two years later, she is still insistent that her father was unjustly taken away from her. He did not deserve to be arrested, should not be in prison and that all she really wants is to be reunited with him.
You’d think this makes no sense. I mean, no sane person would want to reunite with a father who sexually abused her and impregnated her, but she does. I think there’s a psychological reason for it. We only have one father. We only have one mother. If our father or mother is removed, we can’t replace that person. We’re essentially abandoned. We’re lost …
So, what happens if we reject the government? If we don’t want to use the government as a way to keep ourselves safe, to be reliant on government for our money, for our sanctity, [then] we have to rely on each other. We can do that if we have a family, if we have a community, if we have a church, civic organizations and structures.
But what if we’re a single mother with a couple of children living in a Santa Monica apartment that’s being subsidized by the Santa Monica city government, and getting food stamps from the state of California? Well, now we can’t say goodbye to government. We have to keep the government.
So, I really do believe that the attacks on masculinity, on femininity, are specifically designed to end the family unit and to cause all men and women to turn towards government for their security rather than to one another, as has traditionally been the case …”
McDonald stresses that this isn’t really a political issue per se, although the left “seems to have almost a near monopoly on it,” primarily because “the left is inherently a communist or socialist movement. It’s anti-religious, anti-family, anti-individual.”
The problem, of course, is that communist and socialist societies are built on a foundation of corruption, where a small group of elites end up pilfering from everyone else. That’s why communist and socialist regimes don’t last. They always end up collapsing from the rot of corruption.
What’s the Solution?
As for how we are to solve our current problems, McDonald says:
“I have faith and confidence in individuals, but in humanity as a whole, I have lost quite a degree of faith.
Although there have always been corrupt individuals, the fact that humans as a group have allowed them, in the last couple of years, to gain such a foothold through their own voluntary compliance says to me that humanity does not have, at least not now, the inherent capacity to resist true evil to the degree that I believed it had. So, I was mistaken.
This is what’s led me to have some, depending on the day, different feelings and views towards the possibility for a way out. I do not believe right now that the way out is to wait for a messiah … I think the way out is going to be from the grassroots … a rising from the ashes, essentially.
[Take] the public school system in the United States, which I think is unsalvageable; I don’t think it can be fixed. We need to build a new school system. We need to be build a new banking system, a new food system, a new supply delivery system.
We need to build a new political system. All of these systems need to be basically rebuilt. And they’re not going to be rebuilt by a leader, they’re going to be rebuilt by the people, and that’s going to require international cooperation …
It’s so important that the American people actually come together and throw off this corrupt cabal of power and structure so that they can rebuild … If it doesn’t happen, I think we’re going to look forward to a very, very dark period of time that’s going to last … for years or decades. I don’t know if we’ll ever really be able to get out of it.”
Decentralization of Power Is Crucial
As we rebuild, it’s quite clear that decentralization is going to be absolutely essential. As explained by McDonald, one of the reasons for the United States’ success is the Founding Fathers’ foresight to create a system where power is decentralized across the 50 states. The reason the U.S. is on the brink of losing our freedom now is because the power has been reconcentrated through technology and social media.
“The only way for this degree of evil to exist and for it to have such a strong grip over the country, is for the power to be concentrated. If the power were spread out, it would be very difficult for this type of brainwashing to occur because there would be enough counterbalance, there’d be enough dispersion of the corruptive influence, that truth and honesty and the forces for good would actually have a foothold.
I mean, Parler was destroyed a year ago because two men in Silicon Valley flipped a switch and 30 million voices were silenced. I mean, this has never been possible before. Never … I believe right now that … it will take a personal loss, something profound and significant, for those who are still brainwashed to be able to actually start to think clearly again.
Perhaps the loss of a child to a vaccine injury, the loss of a parent who’s denied hospital treatment for heart failure because he decided not to get a vaccine, the complete economic collapse of the home, the community, or perhaps even the country, because we are allowing ourselves to no longer work and believe that somehow productivity will happen somewhere else by some other person.
We may wind up, as is happening in LA, in a state of absolute anarchy, where wealthy people in the Palisades, in Malibu, in Beverly Hills, are now being robbed, raped and murdered by gang members in the same way that they are in the Favelas in Brazil.
This type of crime wave, not just among the poor people out in the ghetto, but among the wealthy class, the ones who are voting in all of the people who are pushing this corruption and this technological brainwashing … has never happened in my lifetime in Los Angeles. [But it] may be requisite that those who are helping support this brainwashing actually suffer significant personal losses before they wake up and pull their support from it.”
Based on what I’ve seen and heard, I suspect even personal losses won’t wake some of them up. I’ve seen cases where a loved one has died within minutes or hours of their COVID shot, and if they’ve lived through it, the person brushes it off as coincidence and schedules their booster. They simply refuse to see the correlation.
This tendency toward blind self-destructiveness is part and parcel of a psychiatric condition known as “mass formation psychosis,” which is the clinical diagnosis proposed by Mattias Desmet, professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium.1
Is It Just Corruption or Something More Sinister?
Clearly, the concentration of power was not accidental. It’s been planned and executed over decades. Ultimately, technology — which is at the heart of the technocratic world view — was needed to succeed. Today, the technology to manipulate and control the global population exists.
“This gives rise to another question, which I would’ve answered very differently a year ago. I’m asked very frequently, ‘Is this simply corruption?’ Meaning ‘I want more money. I want more power.’ Or is there something more sinister? Is there at least a sociopathy or perhaps even existence of evil behind it?
Two years ago, I would’ve said that’s absurd. Maybe there’s a few sociopathic individuals. Certainly, there’s nothing evil. I don’t believe in the devil. But I’m now starting to wonder whether this goes beyond just simple human corruption. Greed is so banal … That seems like such a relatively innocuous vice given what we’re seeing as the consequences of these decisions.
I am now open, as I never have been before, to the possibility of the existence of evil. Of a force, which is actually at play, driving these individuals to commit such acts of horrible evil. And it is evil. The outcomes are evil. They are not errors, and they are orchestrated. That’s what leads me to being so questioning now of these explanations that involve simply errors or isolated corruption.
There is something so, so beautifully precise and well connected and enduring about how all of these actions have come together in the last couple of years that it leads me to think that there must be some sort of force or power at play that goes beyond simple human frailty.”
McDonald is currently writing a second book, in which he’ll delve deeper into solutions for overcoming fear on a personal and national level. Some of his ideas and treatment recommendations have grown out of a consolidation and evolution of his viewpoints over the last couple of years.
But before we can do anything, we need to understand which groups of people are amenable to treatment and which are not. Some are so deeply brainwashed, they’re seemingly unreachable. Others are scared, but they would like to not be. The first is untreatable, while the other is treatable.
“The brainwashed group, in the same way that we would treat a cult, cannot be treated voluntarily,” he says. “I cannot provide information, education, counseling or even a book for them, because they will not listen. They will not read it. They don’t want to, because I am an enemy. Anybody that provides truth and hope and information is the enemy.
The only ally they have is the guru. Just as a cult is closed off, their family members completely separated from them … these people will only listen to and take commands from Anthony Fauci, from Joe Biden, from Don Lemon, people in media, people in politics, people in bureaucratic government, and nothing will change their mind. Absolutely nothing.
They could see people dying around them, their own parents, their own children, and they would still go take another shot. They are lost, unless and until they are physically removed, essentially in the way that we would with a cult, to a remote location where they can be deprogrammed. And I am not in that business. So that’s not the group that I’m speaking to.
I have to be realistic. We have to be practical and efficient with how we use our time. We don’t want to preach to the choir, but we also don’t want to try to go after people who are closed off, lacking curiosity, utterly brainwashed. They’re not going to listen. It’s useless.
So that leaves the other group, which is the open-minded, maybe scared, maybe anxious, curious group. I would call these people the fear addicts who want to lose their addiction … Those are the people that I want to reach out to with the next book.”
Breaking Fear Addiction
The paradigm McDonald proposes is a basic 12-step program to overcoming addiction, in this case the addiction to fear. As in any 12-step program, the first step is to admit you have an addiction. They must admit they’re addicted to fear, because without losing the fear, they cannot move forward.
“Fear is the obstacle to being able to think and act rationally. So, the fear has to be overcome. But in order to overcome fear, you have to admit that you’re addicted to it, that this is not something that you want to hold onto,” McDonald explains.
“From there, there are other things you can do. One of them, which I don’t think anyone has really talked about much, is you need to embrace humor. Humor is what allows us to have a perspective. Without a perspective, we’re like a sailor looking through a monoscope. Everything is just focused on one little target off in the distance.
We lose everything around us. We lose our context. We’re unable to assign value and priority to things. Everything becomes about cases, death, cases, death, shots, masks. One of the best ways to step away from that is to actually develop humor and to embrace it. To start to laugh again, to tell jokes, to see the lighter side of our time here. We’re not here just to exist. We’re here to live. We’re here to live fully …
Developing that sense of perspective allows them to embrace more curiosity. They must also cut themselves off from media, at least temporarily, because media is what’s fueling the addiction … You’ve got to stop going to your dealer …
I’m going to go through a lot of other steps as well as I elucidate them. But these are some of the ones I think are very important for people to consider — admitting that you have a problem and desiring to end it; developing, or at least embracing, humor; and avoiding the dealer of the fear, which is, largely speaking, the media.
Also, return to what’s around you. Stop cutting yourself off from people. You may be embracing people who are also fearful. Hanging out with alcoholics is not the best way to stop drinking. Go to people who are sober.
Build friendships, relationships with people who don’t have the addiction to fear … You’ll discover an entire world that does not revolve around viruses, injections, masks and shutting down schools and businesses.”
Do You Have the Basic Will To Be Free?
According to Robert Malone, Ph.D., in private conversation with Desmet, Desmet suggested that one of the things that can work is to shift the focus from the irrational fear of death from a relatively innocuous virus to the rational fear of global tyranny, the entire human race being subjugated to slavery for the remainder of time.
Desmet claimed he had tested it out and found that, in some cases, people who are afraid of COVID can be steered to a saner frame of mind by, essentially, giving them a greater fear with which to replace their irrational fear of the virus. McDonald doesn’t believe this will work, at least not to any significant degree.
“I wrote about the cultural prerequisites in my book. [Desmet] describes [them] in purely psychological terms, although there’s also cultural overlay [such as] lack of meaning and being disconnected from family. Well, how does that happen?
When you don’t really know what your purpose is as a man, when you don’t have a nuclear family, you lose family relationships. You’re cut off from your friends because of political differences. So, we kind of reached the same end points from different starting points, but I completely agree with him.
The idea of hypnosis is also very interesting. I’ve studied clinical hypnosis. As we all know in stage performances, the hypnotist will bring on a dozen people on the stage, try to suggest different things to 12 people.
And then he’ll gradually pick off 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 of them, send them back to the audience when he diagnoses them as non-suggestible. He keeps two or three who are, and those people usually perform beautifully throughout the hypnosis on stage.
I think that’s also true. I think there are people who are just, for some reason, more easily suggestible. And so, they are more prone to a hypnotic trance. And I think there is a kind of hypnotic trance going on right now in the world. Those people just have an inherent suggestibility.
The idea that we could supplant the fear of death with a fear of totalitarian control is an interesting one, but I’m not sure that I agree with that for the following reason.
I think one of the reasons why people have become so compliant, especially in the Western countries, in the more affluent, the more kind of technologically-connected, interpersonally-disconnected societies, is that we have largely lost the … intrinsic [will to] revolt and push back against being controlled by a higher non-God-like authority.
I think that people today, they do not intrinsically crave freedom. I think they crave being taken care of. And one of the great strengths of totalitarian regimes throughout the 20th century is that they have offered security at the expense of freedom.
And people have largely embraced it, at least at the beginning, before all of the camps started and the executions, because they don’t see the end point of the loss of freedom. They see the immediate benefits of security, of being taken care of. I don’t have to go to work every day … This is such an easier life. This is like going back in time to the day I was born and every need that I had was taken care of …
Now, I had no freedom. I was at the mercy of the mother. But wow, what an easy life. No responsibility … So, there’s something psychologically hardwired into us to want to embrace something simple, something easy, give away our autonomy to a higher authority that is a state that will take care of us.
And, of course, it always turns into a totalitarian system and then the people end up dying, being murdered, we have mass starvation, executions. We’ve seen it time and time again throughout the 20th century.
But from my experience as a clinician, people are actually far more scared of death, of losing security, of losing so-called protection from the state, than they are of losing all of their liberties, their freedoms, and ultimately just being fed into a meat grinder for society’s despots.
At its core, the totalitarian system offers a cheat. It says, ‘Stop believing in a higher power that isn’t real, God, and believe in a higher power which is me and the party. I can offer you the potatoes. I can offer you the guards … I can offer you all of that right now. What can God offer you? … You can’t rely on him. Well, you can rely on me.’ It’s almost like a devilish kind of Faustian play that these totalitarian despots always engage in, but people fall for it.
And this is one of the reasons why every communist system, every dictatorship, essentially attacks all forms of religious worship and organization. They need a secular society, because when there is the higher power, above the state, that people believe in or rely on, it diminishes the absolute power of the state. It brings it into context.
And the context is that it’s flawed, because totalitarian regimes are still run by human beings. They’re not run by angels. They’re not run by God. And if we can remove God from the picture, now suddenly, the whole hierarchy shifts and the top power becomes the state and there’s nothing above the state.
I don’t think there’s any exception to this. And this is another reason why the attack on the church and the attack on Christmas, for example, has been so ongoing in the last couple decades.”
Be Brave, Speak Out, Find Your Tribe
If you haven’t done so already, the first thing you’ll want to do is surround yourself with like-minded people, and be sure to meet in person, whenever possible. Part of finding your “tribe” involves gathering your courage and speaking your mind.
“One of the key things that I discovered personally, which I strongly suggest everyone do, is come out of the closet,” McDonald says.
“I recognize it is far easier to come out of the closet as a transgendered non-binary right now than it is to come out as a conservative, but even if you lose a few friends and colleagues, you will gain far, far more from high-quality, supportive, loving, freedom defending people with integrity than anything that you’ve ever lost.
As Mikki Willis [creator of the Plandemic documentary series] said to me after he filmed his first movie, ‘I didn’t lose a single friend.’ I said, how is that possible? He said, ‘Because all the people that left, they weren’t friends to begin with.’ And I completely agree with him. That has been true in my experience. It will be true in yours.
All you have to do is you have to tolerate and accept the immediate temporary fire-branding that will occur once you put your head up and … start speaking from your heart and being honest, showing your own integrity …
The people that don’t support you, they will leave. They will create space for those who do. Those who hear you and agree with you, they will come to you. They will say, ‘Thank God, another person who shares my views. What’s your name? Can we meet for coffee? Have you heard about this group I organized? We meet on Thursdays over at the coffee shop. I want you to introduce you to my friends.’
That will happen to you. And I think that is the first, most important step that you can take to becoming a stronger, healthier, and more pro-freedom, pro-American individual.”
A number of mental health experts have expressed concern over the blatant panic mongering during the COVID-19 pandemic, warning it can have serious psychiatric effects.
Dr. Mercola cites S.G. Cheah’s report which said, “Even when the statistics point to the extremely low fatality rate among children and young adults (measuring 0.002% at age 10 and 0.01% at 25), the young and the healthy are still terrorized by the chokehold of irrational fear when faced with the coronavirus.”
“It’s one of the reasons why you’re seeing so many people who’d happily approve the silencing of any medical experts whose views contradict the WHO or CDC guidelines,” Dr Mercola suggests. “‘Obey the rules!’ becomes more important than questioning if the rules were legitimate to begin with.”
In a December 2020 interview, psychiatrist and medical legal expert Dr. Mark McDonald also went on record stating “the true public health crisis lies in the widespread fear which morphed and evolved into a form of mass delusional psychosis.”
“The pandemic has had a game-changing effect on our mental health and it requires a revolutionary response,” says Dr. Mercola. “Dedicated additional funding for mental health and social care must go to frontline services to help meet the new demand, otherwise thousands of people could bear a catastrophic cost.”

Children are bearing a particularly heavy burden as adults succumb to irrational fears, says Dr. Mercola.
“One of the worst traumas inflicted on children has been the ridiculous idea that they might kill their parents or grandparents simply by being around them,” he says. “They’re also being taught to feel guilty about behaviors that would normally be completely normal – as just one example: hysterical adults calling a toddler who refuses to wear a mask a ‘brat,’ when resisting having a restrictive mask put across your face is perfectly normal at that age.”
It’s abnormal for children to grow up thinking that they’re a danger to people around them, and that everyone around them is a danger to them, he says.
“What’s more, by encouraging us to remain in fear and allow it to control and constrain our lives, the fear has become so entrenched that anyone who says we need to be fearless and fight for our freedoms is attacked for being both stupid and dangerous,” he adds.
It’s adults who are inflicting this emotional trauma on an entire generation, Dr. Mercola insists.
Worst of all, mass delusion is leading us into slavery.
“The mass delusion must also be addressed because it’s driving us all, sane and insane alike, toward a society devoid of all previous freedoms and civil liberties, and the corrupt individuals in charge will not voluntarily relinquish power once we’ve given it to them,” he says. “Totalitarianism actually begins as psychosis within the ruling class, as the individuals within this class are easily enamored with delusions that augment their power.”
If it begins with a form of communism, fascism or technocracy, a ruling elite that has succumbed to their own delusions of grandeur then sets about to indoctrinate the masses into their own twisted worldview. All that’s needed to accomplish that reorganization of society is the manipulation of collective feelings.
“Sadly, many citizens are unwittingly aiding and abetting the global power grab that will result in our enslavement,” says Dr. Mercola. “Fear fueled hysteria, which led to mass delusional psychosis and group control where citizens themselves support and press for the elimination of basic freedoms.”
The only solution is to restore sanity, he says.
“In short, to help return sanity to an insane world, you first need to center yourself and live in such a way as to provide inspiration for others to follow – speak and act in such a way as to demonstrate that you are not afraid to live life and return to normalcy,” Dr. Mercola suggests.
Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb admitted that cloth masks do not provide a high level of protection against COVID-19. Gottlieb — who sits on the board of directors of Pfizer — delivered his insight on face masks as well as stating that the omicron is a milder variant during an appearance on “Face the Nation.”
“Cloth masks aren’t going to provide a lot of protection, that’s the bottom line,” Gottlieb told host Margaret Brennan on Sunday morning.
“This is an airborne illness,” he continued. “We now understand that, and a cloth mask is not going to protect you from a virus that spreads through airborne transmission.”
“It could protect better through droplet transmission, something like the flu, but not something like this coronavirus,” explained Gottlieb, who was a clinical assistant professor at New York University School of Medicine before becoming the 23rd FDA commissioner in 2017.At this stage of the pandemic, cloth masks don’t provide much protection against COVID-19, according to @ScottGottliebMD.pic.twitter.com/pvX5McVnzX
Last January, Gottlieb shared a CNN opinion piece titled: “America needs better masks to fight Covid-19.”
Part of the reason is that new Covid-19 variants are more transmissible – meaning you are possibly more likely to be infected with even less exposure time and from greater distances than before. As Dr. Walensky herself mentions, ongoing studies are evaluating the efficacy of cloth masks in light of new variants. Without definitive answers, the precautionary principle – erring on the side of caution – should be invoked before more people become infected. Secondly, because — regardless of variant — the virus is still transmitted by both droplets and aerosols, the latter of which are best trapped by electrostatic chargesfound in N95 caliber masks.
In November 2020, Gottlieb wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled: “Some Masks Will Protect You Better Than Others.”
In the article, Gottlieb noted that at the beginning of the pandemic, health agencies advised the public to use cloth masks because “medical masks were in short supply.”
“A cotton mask offers far less protection than a surgical mask,” he wrote, adding, “An N95 or equivalent mask offers the best protection and, if used properly, will filter out at least 95% of infectious particles.”
During Sunday’s “Face the Nation” interview, Brennan asked Gottlieb if schools should mandate COVID-19 booster shots for 12- to 15-year-olds.
“Well, look, I certainly don’t think schools should be mandating boosters,” he replied. “I think this should be left up to the discretion of parents and their physicians.”
“You know, it’s going to depend on the individual circumstance,” Gottlieb said. “What is the risk that the child’s facing? Are they in a setting where they’re more likely to come into contact with the infection? Do they have some underlying health conditions that put them at increased risk of bad outcomes?”
Gottlieb stressed that schools need to remain open.
“I think the imperative needs to be to try to open schools,” he stated. “What you’re saying by closing schools preemptively, and even colleges, is that you can’t possibly control outbreaks in those settings. And I just don’t think that that’s the case. I think with the tools we have with prudence, with the knowledge we have about how to control this infection in those settings, you can do pretty- a pretty good job of trying to control large outbreaks, certainly within the classroom.”
Gottlieb said the Omicron variant “does appear to be a milder strain of coronavirus and we also have a lot of immunity in the population.”
“There is a very clear decoupling between cases at this point in hospitalizations and ICU admissions,” he said. “There’s a very clear, as I said, decoupling between cases and hospitalizations and does appear now based on a lot of experimental evidence that we’ve gotten just in the last two weeks, that this is a milder form of the coronavirus appears to be a more of an upper airway disease and a lower airway disease that’s good for most Americans.”
“The one group that- that may be a problem for his very young kids — very young children, toddlers who have trouble with upper airway infections, and you’re in fact seeing more croup-like infections and bronchiolitis in New York City among children,” he added. “So, that could be a challenge for young kids, and we are seeing rising hospitalizations among that pediatric segment.”
Gottlieb believes that the current wave of the Omicron variant will begin to decline in most of the U.S. by the end of February.
“Now this is a big country, this will affect different parts of the country at different points in time,” he said. “But if the UK is any guide, London’s already peaking. If South Africa is any guide. This is about a two-month epidemic wave from start to finish. And so, parts of the country that were affected earlier, like New York, probably are going to start to peak in the next two weeks, other parts within the next four weeks. So, I think certainly by the end of February, we will be through this if businesses need a guide of when prevalence is going to start to decline in terms of school.”
Last month, Gottlieb predicted that 2022 “is going to be a transition year.” He said we will likely “go from a pandemic into a more endemic phase.”
Gottlieb says Omicron appears to be a “milder form” of COVID-19, but pediatric danger remains http://www.youtube.com
On Wednesday, the woke arbiters of truth at Twitter permanently suspended the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology, Dr. Robert Malone, from their platform.
A few hours before the suspension, Dr. Malone shared a review from the Canadian Covid Care Alliance – an organization of medical experts that provides “independent, science-based evidence” – that looked at Pfizers clinical vaccine data.
According to the expert panels review, the vaccine maker’s own trials showed that after 6 months the experimental Covid-19 Vaccines actually “cause more harm than good.”
Update (1228ET): Glenn Greenwald has written yet another blistering indictment of big tech censorship in response to Twitter’s permanent suspension of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Even as their Party and leaders are overwhelmingly funded by large corporations, Wall Street and Silicon Valley, Democrats and liberals still like to posture as opponents of corporate power, yet they crave having unelected tech executives control and police political discourse.
One last point: this censorship is not the sole decision of tech companies. Dems are using their majoritarian in DC power to threaten that they will pay unless they censor more. That's a union of state and corporate power and implicates the 1st Amendment:https://t.co/KBMZpFiSzL
Just days after Twitter banned Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA technology and a strident skeptic of the vaccines produced using his the mRNA framework, for allegedly spread COVID “misinformation” (their words, not ours), Twitter and its new leadership have struck again. This time, they’re “permanently” banning Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account for allegedly spreading misinformation as well.
In a statement, Twitter explained they would ban MTG’s personal account (which has a far larger following than her “official” representative account) due to “repeated” violations.
“We permanently suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement first reported by CNN. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
One Twitter representative told the NYT that the company has been “very clear” about its policies, and that Greene has violated them anyway.
“We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy,” Katie Rosborough, a Twitter spokeswoman, said in a statement.
Greene responded to Twitter’s decision on Gettr, the conservative social media platform that has cast itself as an alternative to Twitter.
“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth. That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies,” Greene wrote.
For a few months now I’ve been writing that my thinking around Covid tyranny and these elite aspirations toward a Great Reset under their purview had shifted. For nearly two years I had feared that we were headed into a new dark age of totalitarianism and repression, that Western leaders would aspire to implement China-style social credit systems and completely takeover the economy and day to day lives of its subjects.
Make no mistake, many establishment elites do want that. It’s just for awhile there it looked to me like they would succeed. But then my thinking started to shift around that. I realized that the entire transformational shift in the very nature of communications (Internet), power (networks) and then money (Bitcoin) meant the very architecture of society had changed so profoundly that this type of top-down, centralized authoritarianism I had feared so much was now untenable.
It was trying to retrofit digital versions of industrial era authority onto a new terrain of decentralized networks and individual sovereignty (at least for those individuals who successfully position themselves for it. Everybody else will be neo-Feudal serfs, and many of them will actually prefer that).
Covid, rather than bringing about a monoculture of globalism, which those who respected human rights feared, it forced the hand of these impulses. It became a matter of Too Much, Too Soon.
Further, my readings of history made me expect that when the entire false Zeitgeist around COVID, collectivism (including climate) came unglued, it would happen very rapidly. A la the fall of the 800-year old Czarist line in under 72 hours, or the collapse of the Soviet Empire within 18 to 24 months.
These last couple days felt like something has palpably shifted:
You’re watching the narrative of the covid regime collapse in real time. It’s beautiful.
When omicron came out media went hysterical, at the time I wrote that Omicron changed nothing. The early indications were that it was less dangerous than Delta, which was only 1/10th as bad as Alpha (that’s why the casedemic became so absurd under Delta as the fatalities never rose with the case counts).
The best Christmas gift I can give you is some actual context around real data. The case count since Omnicron is irrelevant. The ICU has many times as many people with non-COVID related causes, and plenty of room. Fatalities flat. Media: hysterical. pic.twitter.com/hF1ECUfFBN
But I was wrong about Omciron, in that it changed everything. It became very apparent very quickly that Omicron was a nothing-burger in terms of lethality, that its super-contagiousness meant that COVID would be endemic, but benign.
Over the past few days the CDC moderated its stance on quarantine times, acknowledging the new reality. Here in Ontario the medical board announced no more PCR tests for the non-symptomatic – in other words, there will be no more histrionics over case counts. Schools will remain open, much to the chagrin of teachers’ unions and those conditioned by two-years of Pavlovian fear-mongering.
Now into this highly sensitive state of self-organized criticality comes the Joe Rogan interview with mRNA inventor Robert Malone. Three hours long to a widespread audience, Youtube took the video down within hours of the interview being covered on Zerohedge.
What I didn’t expect to happen so fast was the sudden narrative and policy shifts in the face of the undeniable reality that Omicron has ended the pandemic. Super-contagious yet mild in effects, with ultra low hospitalizations and near-zero fatalities, Omicron is nature’s detente with humanity. An all natural herd immunity (except for the part where it was probably, originally cooked up in a lab).
Ironically, the fact that the dominant strain is now a head-cold version of COVID should be good news. However, for many this had become a religion.
There will be those who try to cling onto COVID tyranny for as long as possible and in doing so, they will perpetuate a state of hyper-normalization that will be self-defeating.
Hyper-normalization is a phrase coined by the UK documentarist Adam Curtis, and it describes a state where the prevailing establishment narrative is so absurd and demonstrably false that only the most brainwashed True Believers can cling to it. Only the most corrupt and self-seeking policy makers will attempt to perpetuate it. Those who do espouse it are typically the greatest beneficiaries of the dysfunctional zeitgeist.
Whether it’s Justin Trudeau accusing the vaccine hesitant of being racist misogynists…
Trudeau: “People who are fiercely against vaccination. They are extremists who don’t believe in science, they’re often misogynists, also often racists.”
…or Big Tech attempting to deplatform Robert Malone, every further incident, every attempt at censorship and gaslighting just makes it all the more clear and undeniable: the only people pushing to continue this state of affairs are insular elites who are detached from reality and who benefit from a system that has lost all legitimacy.
As we come to the end of the second year in Covidia, I reflect on just how much the instigators of the entire scam have managed to reshape reality in an amazingly short timeframe, such that what was considered normal 12 months ago is now considered abnormal, and what was considered abnormal 12 months ago is now seen as normal.
For instance, had one predicted 12 months ago that after “vaccinating” the elderly and those considered vulnerable, which was the “route back to freedom”, the Johnson Regime and countless others around the world would:
Proceed to push the injection onto all adults
Move on to getting it into children
Make thousands jobless who do not wish to partake in the experiment
Begin the introduction of Vaccine Passports
Announce that the allegedly 95% effective products wane so quickly they’ll need to be taken every few months
Start talking about the possibility of mandatory jabs
Reintroduce the restrictions that these injections were supposed to do away with
…why such a person would have been called a Conspiracy Nut. Yet a year later the same person is called a Conspiracy Nut for opposing these very things they got called a Conspiracy Nut for predicting, but which are now reality.
There is something horribly ironic, and also deeply chilling about this. For it shows not only how easily manipulated so many people are, but also just how easy it has been for the Covidian Regimes to reshape reality such that millions have come to accept as normal the very things they would have dismissed just months earlier as the product of deranged minds.
The last two years has felt like people are living in parallel universes, so much so that it’s almost tempting to wonder whether Zuckerberg’s hideous Metaverse is already a thing, with millions having unwittingly entered it in early 2020 without noticing.
In the Metaverse, SARS-CoV-2 is a new Black Death that kills indiscriminately no matter what age. In the real world, it is a virus that has a 99.9% Survivability Rate, and there are effective early treatments available to the 0.1% for whom it might potentially be lethal.
In the Metaverse, Lockdowns of healthy people are how we’ve always dealt with outbreaks of transmissible illnesses. In the real world, other than a hastily ended five-day trial in Mexico during the 2009 Swine Flu outbreak, the quarantining of the healthy was never been done before the Chinese Communist Party implemented it in early 2020, to be copied all over the world by Governments ignoring their own long existing pandemic preparedness plans.
In the Metaverse, masks are about loving your neighbour because wearing them stops you passing on the virus you don’t have to others. In the real world, masks do not and cannot stop viral transmission, and thus they are a not a health aid, but a political and psychological tool of subjugation and dehumanisation, designed to humiliate and perpetuate fear.
In the Metaverse, a public health crisis caused by a virus has zero medical advice given out to people, but just a relentless barrage of talk about cases, hospitalisations and deaths, with all knowledge of effective early treatments ruthlessly suppressed. In the real world, a public health crisis caused by a virus would see Governments, health officials, and doctors recommending cheap and effective ways of boosting one’s immune system, such as Vitamin C and D, Zinc, Quercetin, sunshine and plenty of exercise and fresh air.
In the Metaverse, people who aren’t ill can spread the illness they don’t have, and so must take a test which cannot diagnose illness and which gives huge numbers of false positives, after which they must stay in their house for a prolonged period to stop the virus they don’t have from spreading. In the real world, if you’re well, you go about your daily life; if you have what are called “symptoms”, you stay home and rest.
In the Metaverse, the injection of billions of lipid nanoparticles containing mRNA, which has never been injected into people before, which tricks the cells into allowing it to enter, which then causes billions of cytotoxins to be produced in cells throughout every organ, and which the manufacturers have indemnity but no proper safety data for, is hailed as a saviour. In the real world, this is the most dangerous, reckless medical experiment ever performed on masses of people without their knowledge of what they are being given, and the long-term consequences could be unimaginably disastrous, as Professor Sucharit Bhakdi explains in this horrifying warning.
In the Metaverse, a product which doesn’t prevent infection, doesn’t provide immunity, and which requires top-ups every three months, is a vaccine, even if it needs the dictionary definition of what a vaccine is to be changed to accommodate it. In the real world, the Groucho Marx rule about ducks applies — if it looks, walks, and quacks like a duck then it probably is a duck. Thus if it doesn’t stop infection, doesn’t provide immunity, and wanes after 10 weeks, then it probably isn’t a vaccine.
In the Metaverse, willfully going along with abnormal, illegitimate and authoritarian rules & behaviours is the way back to normality and freedom. In the real world, willfully going along with abnormal, illegitimate and authoritarian rules & behaviours is about conditioning us to accept abnormality, the end of a law based society, and the long term loss of freedom.
In the Metaverse, bringing in Vaccine Passports for nightclubs and other large venues is about keeping people safe, and of course won’t be extended to other venues. In the real world, Vaccine Passports are a Trojan Horse, firstly to be extended into other venues of much smaller size (as has been the case in many European countries), but ultimately to facilitate the creation of a Digital ID Social Credit Hellhole where your every move and transaction can be tracked, you have credits not money, and freedom as we knew it is a thing of the past.
In the Metaverse, people who refuse to submit to the mass medical experiment only have themselves to blame if they find themselves excluded by law from entering certain venues, doing certain jobs, buying certain goods, and even being able to avail themselves of the basic necessities of life. In the real world, this unscientific, unholy, sinister apartheid system shows that we are edging eerily close to repeating the ugliness and depravity of certain 20th century regimes that we smugly told ourselves we were not capable of repeating, due to our apparent goodness.
It is baffling that people can view what’s going on so differently, but I would point out that all the views in the real world are derived from facts, data, reason, logic and historical examples, whereas all the views in the Metaverse are taken from Government and media propaganda.
One of the exasperating things in dealing with this is that whilst there are an endless potential number of lies that can be told, there is only one truth. And what the Government and media are very skillful at doing is layering lies upon lies upon lies, such that whilst the critical thinkers and data analysts are busy trying to debunk lie number one, lies number two, three, four and following are already being laid on that foundation so that by the time the original lie has been shown to be false, things have moved on and hardly anyone can remember, let alone care about the original claim.
However, the good news is that this is also the Achilles Heel of the Globalist’s narrative. Firstly, the more lies that are told, the harder it is to sustain the story because it can only be kept going by more lies, each of which tends to become increasingly blatant and absurd, such that even those who have been slumbering for two years begin to stir. For instance, if you try to assure the huge numbers of people that have had adverse events from the injection, or who know others that have suffered, that they must get the next one and it’s perfectly safe, clearly you are going to have your work cut out as stark reality highlights the lie in what is being told.
But the other part of this Achilles Heel is this: The Truth will win because The Truth must win. It is The Truth. It cannot not win. Attempting to suppress it is like trying to hold a cork under water. It will always be wanting to get to the surface, and as soon as you tire of holding it and release your grip, that’s what it will do. And so although these lies will continue, and although they will appear to prevail for some time to come, there is coming a time when they will be defeated because The Truth, not lies, is the ultimate reality:
“Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.” (Proverbs 12:19)
As we look forward to 2022, although we do not know the details of what is to come, because it is very clear that the goal of the Covidian Regimes is to get everybody injected with their mRNA witches’ brew over and over again by carrot or by stick, by hook or by crook, we can be absolutely sure there will be many more lies, many more difficulties, and much more wickedness. Yet we can also be equally sure that these lies will ultimately be defeated, because he who is The Truth (John 14:6) is guaranteed the victory (Revelation 17:14), and he will suffer their lies only so far, until such time as he destroys their unholy, totalitarian, anti-human agenda. There will be a Reckoning. Just make sure that you are on the right side when it comes.
Rep. Lauren Boebert has come to the defense of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene following her personal account being permanently banned from Twitter.
Rep. Boebert vowed that there will be “accountability” after Republicans win the midterms.
“Twitter permanently suspended a sitting US President. They’ve now permanently suspended a sitting member of US Congress. Of course, both from the same party,” Boebert wrote. “They forget that in 2022 we are taking back the House and we WILL be holding them accountable!”
Greene’s personal account was permanently banned on Sunday for posting Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The platform claimed it was Greene’s fifth “strike” for spreading “COVID-19 misinformation.”
Greene responded on GETTR and Telegram writing, “I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene’s statement said. “That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
Dr. Fauci was on with CNN this morning admitting the vaccines and boosters are not working. Fauci also is calling for people to stay home even if they are vaxxed and boosted.
As we have said numerous times, the pandemic will not end until this dangerous clown is removed from office.
CNN host Dana Bash: How should vaccinated and boosted people behave? Can they go out into a restaurant, eat safely indoors right now?
Dr. Fauci: You know when you’re having I call it a tsunami of infections, Dana. We are seeing people who are vaccinated and boosted who are getting breakthrough infections. So when you’re in a situation when you have so many infections going on the thing that you want to say is that if you want to do things like that, better do them in a setting where you know the people around you are vaccinated.
