No guts, no glory

Note to the reader: Don’t blithely assume the economy is reopening and things will continue to improve. The nation is under the control of public health traitors. They can declare “new waves” of cases. They can invent pretexts at the drop of a hat, and governors and mayors can declare lockdowns again. This is not over. The economic war against the people is being waged to destroy America.
You’ll see this week, as my controversial series of dispatches tries to reach out to the president, I’m suggesting that he break with hallowed tradition and send in troops (or the FBI) to the states and force open the economy, once and for all. Permanently.
I fully realize the dangers of such a move. I also realize what this economic war against the people and the country is doing to America. The news media are covering up the full effects. The nation is being driven off a cliff into chaos. That is the heinous plan. COVID is a pumped up lie and a gross exaggeration, formulated to enable the plan.
It’s a long night in the White House and a long night in America.
It’s a folded newspaper on a silver tray, and the headline screams: WAR, AND AMERICA IS LOSING.
You’re the president and you read it. You can’t not read it.
It’s 3AM and the moon is sitting in the sky. Lopsided. A blood moon.
The enemy hasn’t just landed on our shore. He’s in every community in the country. He’s inside the inside:
Every mom and pop store, every small and medium business in the nation is signaling frantically to you: WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE. WRECKAGE.
Is no one hearing those voices? Is it a silent movie? Just because the traitorous press refuses to cover it?
Mr. Trump, when are you going to fight the enemy? When are you going to declare the real state of emergency?
Millions of people who voted for you are on hold. They’re waiting.
They’re waiting for the cavalry to come over the hill.
In a state of war with the country fully invaded, with the economic devastation that has been visited on the land…
You’re surrendering to the likes of those two-bit vampires, De Blasio and Cuomo, to that blown-dry idiot, Newsom. The governors and mayors are taking you out.
That’s your destiny?
Who are you?
What’s the watchword and the battle cry in this crisis?
Is it Tom Paine? “THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
Or is it, “Order a contactless pizza from Domino’s”?
That once great city, New York, your city, lies in ruins.
Who, Mr. Trump, is the enemy? Who has stormed the beaches and swarmed into the cities and towns of this country? Who has taken down the engines of business?
Do you know?
You swaggered into the White House in 2017 like a two-gun cowboy, backhanding the press, talking fast, talking hard, promising to lift up the economy to soaring heights…and now you’re sitting in the Oval signing away trillions of dollars for a Welfare operation the likes of which the world has never seen. Trillions of air-guitar dollars, lunar dollars, out-of-the-sleeve stage magic dollars, Fed Reserve high-on-speed dream dollars, boiling frog dollars, Wizard of Oz rainbow dollars.
Dollars for a smoking wreckage of an economy, for the people who were working every day in that economy. Some of those checks are going out to people who have already committed suicide, who are now solidly addicted to booze and drugs, who are smashing apart their families, who are standing inside the empty dusty rooms and offices of their former small businesses, wondering what shuck and jive con leveled their survival and their legacy.
They’re being told by bright-eyed android news heads that “the reopening is proceeding.” What do you think their unedited response is?
Do you really think it’s “we’re all in this together”? Do you think they’re happily gnawing on that bone a gaggle of grinning PR devils tossed out the window of their cruising limos on the way to summer vacation houses?
You can’t worm out of this one, Mr. President. You’re no Tom Paine and no George Washington. You stood down and watched this storm hit. This dismantling. This economic invasion. This wrecking ball.
Do you know who the enemy is?
What are you going to do?
Millions of your supporters are waiting for your answer and your action. They’ve eaten as many of your tweet-calories as they can possibly handle.
They’re ready to sign on for the war and back you up, and but they can’t find an enlistment office.
Ten years from now, with the economy nationalized, with wage and price controls, with a permanent dole, with the hideous face of Pelosi or Hillary or Biden stamped on every digital dollar, where will you be?
And 50 years from now, when the history of this nation is buried under multiple layers of scrambled-egg obfuscation, some addled historian will write: “Donald Trump was once thought to have been the president of the United States, but he was actually a composer of a song, BACK IN THE USSR.
Unless you fight the war now, Mr. Trump. No holds barred.
These are times that try men’s souls. Who’s got your soul in a box?
Are you so dumb you can’t see it? He’s the gnome standing right next to you at press conferences.
He’s the front man for the blood moon.

Yeah – he totally got pushed up against a wall on this. I have a constitutional right to NOT BE RESTRICTED TO OXYGEN! (btw – another reason the mask thing is absurd – HEY – your EARS are still open to “invasion” by pathogens – ha. Right down your throat into your lungs.)
Tell me rivercity, Jon, anyone: what is the logic behind this:
1. If you show no symptoms, you may carry “the disease,” so you better wear a mask in order you don’t spread what you might have that you don’t know about. And, you can “continue” with your daily life.
2. If you show symptoms and/or have been tested “positive” for “the disease,” a mask won’t protect others from you. So, stay home for 14 days.
How does a mask protect others from you when you don’t show signs of “the disease,” but not protect others from you when you do show signs of “the disease?” Either it protects or it doesn’t.
According to the “logic” of the first case scenario, the mask protects. Therefore, the mask should always protect. No quarantine, or no mask. The logic is simple: the “officials” are simpletons (and goons).
My answer, take off the mask. Resist. Don’t pay any fines for not wearing a mask. Let the court chase you. If enough of us stop this goosestep idiocy, it will end.
It is not up to President Trump alone to stop this: he cannot do it; and if he could, single-handedly, the next President could reverse what President Trump did. But with tens to hundreds of millions changing it, it will remain.
THOSE REFUSING TO WEAR MASKS NEED ENCOURAGEMENT:
1. When you meet a stranger not wearing a mask tell him/her you are glad to not see a mask.
2. When you walk by a stranger not wearing a mask: smile, point to your face that isn’t wearing a mask and give a thumbs up.

p.s. I have stopped wearing a mask when I deliver my products to business and homes. Despite the edict from our governor for all persons at work to wear a mask: NO PROBLEMS.
p.p.s. we sell our product at a farmers’ market, too, and though it is a requirement to wear a mask when with a customer, I drop my mask when with a customer who is not wearing a mask: sometimes I forget to put it back on. NO PROBLEMS, yet.
Really, it’s not my job to break down govt. spewed data. My job is to use human common sense. Common sense says I have a right to breath, and getting in the sun is good for people.
Sorry you got the wrong impression. I believe this is all a bunch of hocus pocus. I was just putting forth logic that disputes mask wearing as being beneficial and trying to encourage all to encourage others who don’t wear masks to continue not wearing masks.
Again, sorry for any misinterpretation.

You forgot to mention the most absurd part of this – how can we know there is a deadly new infectious disease afoot when the very test used to identify a new virus can’t actually do that, according to the INVENTOR of the test?
Without the PCR test and its positives, there’s nothing to indicate a pandemic at all. This is literally the greatest mass hallucination of all time.
Why don’t we start using chainsaws to cut hair, lawnmowers to split wood & extension cords to pound nails? They weren’t designed for that purpose? Who cares? They’re technology, aren’t they? Just use any tool for any purpose you want. It doesn’t matter if the PCR tests can’t actually demonstrate the outbreak of a deadly new disease, we’ll just pretend they can.
I explain this in the simplest terms to many people and the only ones that seem to get it are the ones who are skeptics from the start. Very frustrating, but I run into the same problem when discussing that AGWarming is not provable.
Yes, the PCR is only meant for mapping the genome, paternity verification or denial, DNA criminal testing. The inventor decied how it was being used to falsely diagnose people as having AIDS/HIV and ruining their lives physically (with toxic treatment drugs), mentally (being stigmatized and more), and emotionally (you’re going to die sooner than you think).
“The love of money is the root of all evil.”

God help us if we are mandated to start “treating” the unreal disease Covid With the same heinous treatments used for HIV and AIDS! Most people who ostensibly died of AIDS actually died of the so called cure.
You are right: the drugs are toxic and we can expect millions of “Covid” victims to die if we start administering drugs as lethal as the ones used to treat HIV. But of course if that happens they will simply claim they died of Covid, they won’t blame the toxic treatment drugs. Their “science” is non-falsifiable.
Kary Mullis did not invent “the test”. He invented RT PCR technology for manufacturing and stated that it should NOT be used as a test. Ever
Thanks. That’s a fair correction. Poor wording on my part.
The technology can’t legitimately be used as a diagnostic test. That’s the key takeaway. Yet it is being so used.
The best explanation I can piece together from government documents on the matter was that wearing mask and quarantine only reduces the overall amount of viral particles you collect and spread. Nothing can be completely avoided. However I got no answer on how much exposure to these particles will lead to illness. Or how little exposure would be acceptable.
Of course you know what would happen if they told people the truth that these measures only reduce the amount of particles you take in and give out. Most people would not follow it as there is no guarantee of safety.
BRAVO JON! I have my Pocket Constitution in my hand bag and the blood of FREEDOM boiling in my veins, God bless you!
Yep…For sure…My heart sank as
I walked past the TV news my wife
refuses to turn off. There was
the pres…(small p)…wearing a
black mask like the rest.
The country is divided.
My family is divided.
And now the pres. is lying
down on the job. And the
enemy is inside the gates.
It was a sight I didn’t like seeing either, but in his defense, he was visiting a hospital. Perhaps he was trying to protect himself since hospitals are a hotbed of REAL diseases.
Yes I saw him in a mask also, and my heart skipped a beat..remember when he did not trust vaccines? Now he stated when it is here that will be great, or real good, or something like that. I remember in a speech, walking off stage he said. This was an artificial lockdown, and it will not happen again..what happened?
Speaking of gnomes; we’ll soon have gnomes to go to 🙁
Why is China stuck as such a low number of “infected” cases? Knowing the answer (as in “objective achieved, fake info”), would equal the knowing of the answer to the “who is the enemy” question. Greed, delusion of power, all will meet opposition. Whether now or in 50 years, there is at least one leader that CAN do it. Without a mask. There may be some military leaders ready to sacrifice themselves for the greater good of mankind… Minds of war…
Great article Jon!
Good luck with him reading it. And if he does, better luck getting him to do something.
Unfortunately, I think he was (s)elected just for this very operation. To keep us divided and confused. (Screw the Hope part.)
Fauci knew (presentation near the time of his inauguration stating he would have a pandemic on his hands).
We’ve been under corporate-fascist ‘rule’ for some time now. Corporations/foundations writing the laws, paying to have them passed, and ‘we the people’ paying to have them enforced, Hoping it would change with the next (s)election.
It’s changed alright…no one can argue that.
We mostly are, unfortunately,all in this together, in the same pen. You are the shepherd. We,the awake, are the border collies. Time to herd up the sheep(lie), take them to a part of the pen away from the wolves, and try to get as many as we can out of the pen. Before more of the sheep turn into wolves.
At least he is speaking out against Fauci now, and he got us out of the corrupt WHO. I know he’s not moving as quickly as we would like, but it’s not like he’s not going against these people at all. Remember that at least half of America has no clue that this is a scam and that these health organizations are corrupt. If he came out in the beginning and said this, those people would not have believed him, and would have accused him of not listening to the health experts. He had to let those people see how far these globalist-run state leaders would go and taking their freedoms, and he had to let them see what the leftist “protesters” were capable of. Defunding the police? I know diehard liberals who are starting to question the liberals motives now.
I still think he has it under control with the military intelligence team he’s working with.
I wish people would stop making excuses for Trump. He played one hell of a good con job and still supporting him means he’s now playing you.
I wanted him to do what was right, but even in defunding the WHO, Trump has turned around and pledged millions to Gavi, which is partly run by the WHO.
All politicians today are funded by the same corporations. BOTH sides of this two party system are broken. We need the real change people are demanding, and it won’t come from either democrats or Republicans.
So true. Stop voting for criminals. That means stop participating in the corrupt system. Stop voting. Stop seeing the doctor. Stop using a lawyer. Stop using the banks to hold your money. Only when enough people stop participating in the corruption, will you get change. Everything has been set up to eliminate the individual, no rights for you. It is all about the corporations and government. Stop getting injected with so called vaccines and flu shots, they are not what we are told they are.
Ha. Out of the WHO and in with GAVI. The US leaving the WHO is nothing to be excited about because he has now bacially put Gates in charge of all US health.
I think we can continue to banter these sub-themes and issues…while to some it’s more obvious than not the inevitable is an actual HOT civil or revolutionary type war. And soon.
Seeing this potential for years, but with exponentially ramped-up clashes on the very basics of what our society is, I fear it’s approaching. The best I can do is remove myself from what may be a Top 10 hotbed area for this.
He did defund the WHO which left Bill Gates in a good position. Plus he put the exboss of GlaxcoKleinSmith Moncif Slaoui & Gates in charge of vaccines. ANd he allocated monies to it. And 15 countries have signed up for the Covi1 pass including the U.S. So I am very confused about where Trump stands. People better wake up and band together. I have a feeling we will have to fight the 1% that intend on vaccinating the majority.
If Mr “Art Of The Deal” is listening, he needs to swap his “Controlled Opposition” cap for a “Fuck You I’m The President” cap.
Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I have no idea what Mr Trump’s experience as POTUS has been like. I’d gladly eat humble pie in return for some Payback.
My grocery store will no longer allow me past their checkpoint – it’s delivery from now on. It looks like the mask mandate is the new Normal.
There will be no symphony season this year, obviously. No Opera, no ballet. Professional musicians might as well learn to code. Schools of music should shutter their doors. Churches are permanently closing their schools – the churches themselves will be gone in a year. The new Normal.
Mr. Trump, take a few minutes to read the Bill of Rights. Not the whole thing – the President has better things to do (like tweeting), but the First Amendment should be enough. The right to peaceably assemble. Cut it out with scissors and paste it on your forehead, so every time you comb your hair (50 times a day, I’m guessing) you will be reminded.
No exemptions near you like medical ?
There is, but the store won’t recognize a medical exemption. They claim that they are “ADA compliant” by offering delivery service for their special needs customers – like people who just want to breathe normally and stay healthy. You can’t make this stuff up.
I will tag Trump on Twitter with your call-to-action, but will it simply fall on deaf ears? He is a wealthy elite from The Families and is Qanon (or rather his scriptwriters are). He is no savior, nor religious (I’m told), and is no supporter of Christianity, which is against USURY (good for trade, you see). Meanwhile, the monstrously cruel social engineering and cleaning-out of world treasuries continues apace. Will anything be left if and when Trump finally decides it’s time act?
LOL! Great words Mr Rappoport! Kudos galore!
Is there any chance of you becoming the next President!
Now that would be something 😉
I would vote for Jon, too! And speaking of alternates, where are they?
Ever wonder why half the “covid cases” in the entire world are in the area between Philly and New York?
Ever wonder why there are only 8 “covid deaths” in Hong Kong (which is about 600 miles from Wuhan) but “100,000 covid deaths” in America?
I’ll answer for you: its because Hong Kong didn’t participate in this HOAX whereas states like New York and New Jersey went all in with the lies and hysteria.
Thank you so much for doing what you do, Jon. You are truly a hero. Keep the pressure on Donald Cuck, he is really abandoning the American people.
This is exactly right. And there are other countries with little to no deaths and it’s bc they did not latch onto the hoax. The deaths in America are ABSURD are an absurd outlier and guess what? Most of the deaths are in New York.
That’s because they shout at each other more in New York. haha.
Dr. Richard Bartlett in Texas has a 100% cure using budesonide, inhaled through a nebulizer. It is an asthma treatment. Using that method Taiwan had 12 fatalities out of 26,000,000 people. Calculator says .0000005%. People are dying needlessly. The economy of western countries are dying needlessly.
I think Dr Bartlett has discovered something amazing here. There is only one conclusion I can make from your statement.
Budesonide is the Elixir of Immortality! If it could have kept all those 80 year olds alive this year, it can keep them alive next year and the year after. Why stop taking it at all? Why not live forever?
Fantastic stuff. 80 year old people are dying needlessly. There is no need to die anymore. Thank you for telling us about this amazing discovery.
Actually I’m only joking. Covid is a hoax. It’s just the flu and a chupa chup would have the same cure rate.
And why isn’t the entire population of Belarus afflicted? Why isn’t half the country dead by now?
Simple. There’s no actual pandemic. The “pandemic” is simply an artifact of the testing – or even just the assumption of Covid in the absence of a positive test.
Executive Orders….only apply to those persons employed by the executive branch whether local, state or national. It is still unlawful for an executive to make unilateral mandates. Ignorant compliance. Ignorance of truth bares no shame, but avoidance of truth is a travesty with potentially dire consequences. The Nuremberg defendants said, “I was just doing what I was told.”
can you provide the proof for that? in other words, if this is part of the legal system that executive orders only apply to employees of the executive branch–that could be used in court.
The 10th Amendment, Bill of Rights.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Proof? It is easily discovered with a minimum of research.
The actual law regarding executive orders: https://losthorizons.com/THS.htm#16
Trump won’t have to be the bad cop. He has governors who can impose vaccine mandates for him.
As Millions Pulled From WHO, Trump Admin Commits Billions To Gates-Founded Vaccine Alliance
Corona virus has not been found in the lung. It is a blood disease. The wearing of masks is absurd.
Não existe esse vírus
Actually there’s a lot of evidence emerging that its main method of transmission is fecal to oral. it’s been found in sewage dating back to 19 or 18. But either way, yeah masks do nothing and in fact, if it is fecal to oral, encourages it bc ppl touch their masks and their face all day.
INTERESTING POINT: Lungs vs. blood.
As Jon wrote earlier, we can look at the logic from inside or outside the scenario. From outside, the virus doesn’t exist. Beauchamp vs. Pasteur leads to virus as exosome as explained by Kaufman. (Cough-man?, haha). And exosomes are created in RESPONSE to toxins to eliminate them. From INSIDE this plot, “they say” that the virus is contagious within 6 feet and is found in droplets of saliva and breath and can “live” on surfaces for hours even if its just a strip of RNA wrapped in protein. AT WHAT POINT in “their narrative” does the “virus” move from airways INTO the blood? Is blood tested with the COvid tests? It must be since there is an “antibody test” and “antibodies” are found in blood. The “PCR test” tests saliva, not blood. So– it seems “covid” is evidenced in both the bloodstream AND the airways/mouthways.
HOW DOES COMMON COLD WORK?
I had not thought deeply about common cold before this crazy covid nonsense but given the Beauchamp terrain theory of disease, there never WAS a cold-virus, commonly thought of as “rhinovirus” although some colds were apparently “coronavirus”, though both are actually routine exosomes that work to clear toxins. IF, however, colds WERE being “caught”, then that points to airborne contagion. So, in Pasteur-theory, you would have a cold in BOTH bloodstream, and airways. That is why people think they need masks– because they think it’s both blood and airborne. And that’s why they think a vaccine would work.
THERE IS NO CURE FOR THE COMMON COLD
It occurs to me that one way to get people thinking about this properly is to ask them why there is no cure for the common cold. When I run a search on this question, there are a variety of explanations like the cold-virus mutates, or it runs-its-course etc. I might be interesting to look at that more later but for now, the question seems, to me, to be the answer– in a RHETORICAL sense. If someone answers you saying COVID is “deadlier” than the “cold” then you could ask “how does that make a cure for IT any LIKLIER than the common cold?”. It doesn’t. Of course, most people– actually all people now– can’t stand still for even a 2-sentence conversation on this so it’s moot. But its still interesting.
Good questions, and I am not qualified to answer other than to say our immune systems are designed to save us from most everything – “colds” are mild and run their course, so who wants to waste money on a cure or vax for that? If you feel one coming on, lots of ways to fight it off with supplements and healing things for the mucus membranes in your nose and throat. Not sure what is actually “cured” by allopathic medicine that relies on poisons, radiation and surgery and cares not one bit about improving immune system.
As far as what is really going regarding new vs same old same old disease, with 100s of thousands dying from the “cure” not the disease, as Jon has often written about. I have listened to so-called whistleblowers who have worked in govt.laboratories like Ft. Detrick studying viruses with the ultimate goal to weaponize them – so that’s why Birx said early on that a vaccine for covid19 was unlikely due to it mutating quickly from the single-source bat shishkabob into different strains and lethalities as if it were actually possible for a coronavirus to team up with bacteria and fungus and HIV all by itself with no help from Fauci and Gates’s team. Those two are blowing smoke up everyone’s skirt and smiling how easy this has been.
Your talk about the cold brings up something I have been wondering lately. How does HPV fit into the world of viruses? It supposedly primarily causes fever blisters but can lead to cancer. It is transmitted person to person by touch. And there is a vaccine for it.
I guess I am basically asking what is it if viruses don’t exist as we tend to think of them? It is certainly something that lays dormant in your system and shows its colors when you’re very stressed and/or sick. Antibiotics don’t work on it, so it can’t be mistaken for that. So again, if not a virus, then what?
When monarchy powers and money men sent ships and landed in the new world, they produced ‘legal papers ‘ claiming ownership.
One has to go way back into actual historical documents to get the foundation of what is happening today.
WOW! I had no idea that Jon’s audience was so anti-Trump! I’d like to know who you all plan on voting for then.
I vote for myself every day.
Have you been in public lately? The entire country now acts like a bunch of crazy loons under Trump’s watch. He stood by and allowed these disgusting laws and is now going to turn schools into child abuse factories where children are told they are diseased and full of viruses and to never go near each other or they might die if they remove their muzzle.
True. The whole Country has collapsed under Trump’s watch. He tweets while Rome burns.
But this is a global happening. This is being hatched at a level far above Trump’s pay grade. How much power & control he has is unknown. But HE knows what is happening & he could redeem himself by being honest with the American people.
Biden and the in-your-face Communist, George Soros- funded Left is a far worse choice. Sad state of affairs.
I remarked to a friend the other day, “I cannot believe how the 2016 issue of ‘lesser of two not good choices’ is now again the 2020 mantra multiplied by 10,000.” Although I did support Trump’s views on policy direction. Now it is about avoiding/forestalling (?) utter communist takeover.
I have voted for Donal Duck before. Last election I voted for Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin, even though he was not on the final ballot. I was going to vote for President Trump this time around, but I am wavering.
Looks like it will be Donald Duck again, or hold my nose and Donald Trump rather than Biden and his puppeteer. But, I do not put any stock in anyone to “Take Back America.” We need another TEA party movement.

The whole point of electing Trump the “Outsider” was for what he said he stood for – quite compelling amongst all the other proven NWO RINO politicians running in 2016. My hope was that he was for real, or at the very least he would stop the illegal warring that created the refugee problems and protect our borders and businesses. The Republican-held Congress and Courts and CoC launched a full court press against Trump, MAGA and the Deplorables. Not Trump’s fault they won’t let him Drain the Swamp, I said. Then the Old Bait & Switch was launched pretty quickly by Trump and his appointees, most of whom were ANTI-MAGA. anti-Deplorables, pro-globalist, including his own very liberal daughter and son-in-law. Then Trump started saying “Hillary is a nice lady so stop screaming about Lock her Up” — Crickets from the duped MAGA supporters.
Here we are almost four years from the MAGA Triumph. Where are we as a nation? Horrifically and irretrievably in debt and divided by a fake pandemic whose only purpose is to put the final death blow to the United States of America as a prosperous free sovereign nation operating under natural God-given laws.
Trump has signed EOs that are only worthy of a Police State dictator. The most egregious is ‘Operation Warp Speed’ to test, report, vax and trace our every movement due to “covid19.” Isn’t that proof enough that Trump is in on his own coup d’etat and is willingly ushering in this Grand Reset??
These are diabolical people running this country and the world, who hate humanity, including their narcissistic selves, constantly flashing their satanic free mason hand signs as we are offered another gulp of Koolaid. Nothing new under the sun– This a pack of mad dogs who will not be reasoned with, and need to be dealt with accordingly. Keep making excuses for Trump – he knows just what he is doing and not doing.
You are right but they are blinded by their faith like those on the left. Don’t know why people cant figure out the 2 party paradigm is an illusion. Both parties controlled by the same people. The difference is like the difference between coke and Pepsi. Mostly differ on insignificant social issues and tone. Neither party ever delivers on their promises to the people but the rich and Globalist corporations make out like bandits.
You are so right.
Here in Muchigulag our Gov.Gretch just issued an emergency text ordering us to wear a mask everywhere we go and for businesses to deny us entry if we don’t have on the sacred mask/face covering. My husband and I are in our early 70s and need all the O2 we can get, so will never comply voluntarily. No one should submit, but submit they will. The Republican legislature has totally rolled over. Only one case has succeeded against the Edicts, and that was the Brave Barber of Owosso, another old curmudgeon who fears No Evil.
Do you all not realize the future has already been planned by these evil people. It’s just the road to get there that we get to “vote” on. Doesn’t matter who you vote for, there will be civil war and chaos and ultimately communism. What road do you want? Marxist approach or Fabian? I vote for neither.
I have not voted in last two elections, for I see it as pointless they are all on the same team. If I am proved wrong, I have no problem with that, I will gladly be wrong to have this nightmare end.
Not the criminals that have preselected for you to vote for. When a poor man can be voted for, I will vote again, or if a none of the above is added to the voting system.. But I will not vote at all, until this happens. I don’t want no criminals leading me, but others seem to like it.
You are attempting to reason with a marionette.
TRUMP MAY ACTUALLY BE A NANOINJECTED MARIONETTE
You maybe be more right than you think. You’re using the terms marionette as a metaphor but he might have been injected with a nanochip already using a nasal swab. Here we see Trump was “finally tested” on March 13 https://thesource.com/2020/03/14/trump-covid-19-tested/…. but the article doesn’t say WHICH test. IF it was a nasal swab, they already may have injected him with a nanotech chip into the brain through the nasal/brain cavity called the cribriform plate which has literal marionette implications according to this… http://stateofthenation.co/?p=19974
Couldn’t socially distance? Blame Your Working Memory.
This article is proof masks and social distancing is not going away.
that’s BS science, and their report contradicts those who wear the masks vs those who don’t want to wear them. People who don’t want to wear masks–when I talk to them in person–do so because they have evaluated the official story and have done their own analysis (this requires MORE of a mind than those who don’t question and just conform).
I know it is…I am trying to show the ptb are not going to let this stop by this fake science of an article.
But what they are trying to say is this…you keep wearing masks and staying far apart and it will be come habit and you won’t mind doing it!
This is possible, but I doubt they’d covertly nanochip a trained, willing, cooperative minion. I wonder if there’s ever been a president they’d need to implement some sort of clandestine control over. Kennedy maybe? The PTB are exceedingly meticulous in their planning. Presidents are groomed decades in advance. So what would be the point?
Agree, except that a ‘trained, willing, cooperative minion’ will take the vaccine and its nano-chip ingredient willingly, because they are trained, willing, and cooperative. And eager to get a vaccine to get back to normal.
Kennedy? Yes, I believe. And his brother was a threat too. (Look at the great pains they’ve taken to try and discredit RFK, Jr. )
all it takes is a popular tweet by an idiot to get the masses to believe bs science like that nowadays
Interesting article, thanks!
I guess they didn’t have a category on the pre-study questionnaire asking if participants believed Covid19 was real or no. And I guess Mike Pompeo wasn’t part of the study group, because he can’t admit under oath that Covid19 ISN’T a hoax!
If they kept bin Laden alive for 9-10 years, just imagine how long they can keep this alive!
I’ve never understood your faith in Trump. He’s jt as sleazy as every other president we’ve had.
I am sending a link to this article to Trump’s Campaign website….everyone here should do the same! Multiple times! And send to White House website also.
I hope everybody enjoys what they see with Hong Kong as of late because it’s guaranteed we are going to become the NEW Hong Kong. (nobody with means wants to stop it, and those of us who want to–don’t have the means).
Couple that with the willful ignorance of the masses.
Here’s a great article on the psyche of the masses and why we’re going to see things get a lot, lot WORSE
We ought to know that politicians no longer give a“tinkers damn” about public wants or demands. They are only responsive to their real masters, the banker billionaires and corporations that have bought them. The people’s paltry donations can’t compete with the thousands and millions of dollars they use to buy their obedience. Therefore these assaults on our freedoms will continue unabated until decent people say “enough “
POSITIVE BLACK SWAN EVENT
I don’t think decent people will say enough… I think they’re prepping with food storage, bullets and further proximity from cities. It occurred to me that the opposite of a black swan event could occur, however. A black swan event is an unpredicted major event with negative impact, like this covid hoax. At first I thought the opposite would be white swan, but it’s not. It’s “POSITIVE black swan” as described here. https://www.wealest.com/articles/positive-black-swan
TYPES OF POTENTIAL POSITIVE BLACK SWANS
1. Good aliens position their flying saucers over every major city, change the brainwaves of bad people into good brainwaves.
2. Jesus Christ arrives, finally.
3. A new form of LSD is released by the chemtrailers that instantly increases human I.Q.
4. All humanity wakes up in a comfortable theatre seats with the announcement “We’re glad you enjoyed your earthly experience. Come back soon for another adventure in our hologram!”.
5. The Rapture occurs sooner than expected and those of us with goodwill acquire glorified bodies impervious to all the downsides of fleshbound humans.
6. Don Trump Jr. is right about covid disappearing once Trump is re-elected in November.
7. All the governments and corporations pushing masks suddenly discover Jon’s site here and realized they’ve been duped, and reverse all their mask policies, apologize profusely and jump on Trump’s Train with the motto “Make America Normal Again”.
8. Democrats discover Jon’s site here and suddenly realize that they’re better off as Republicans and start saying so. The Democrat leadership resigns and turns the house over to Republicans to give Trump full control over all 3 branches.
9. The communist Chinese government resigns, apologizes, and sends entire factories back to America because they’re sick and tired of trying to fool people and would rather just have everyone get along.
10. Billions of people order Jon’s Escape the Matrix and become immune to any of the machinations of the powers-that-be.
You are absolutely right i feel the very same 100%. He is not seated on a comfortable chair. I believe this president is a very methodical person and before he makes a move he has to be sore 1000% not a hundred percent. I constantly fight with people on this issue and i have seen some of the most solid supporters starting to go the other way or talking about.the problem is not the president ,the problem is that the majority of peoples are glued to tv and not only they listen but believe all that those so called experts (a bunch of pedophiles blood thirsty sob are making them believe ,and i know peoples are tired of not see anything moving but you have any idea what a nest of vipers he is seating on ??peoples say :send in the army and wipe out those behind the curtains (the deep state) but its not that easy .He has many generals with him but he is also got lots of other generals against him and they are very powerful. in the congress he is got the entire senate against him, that no godd sob of Mitt Romney he is going the other way but not because they can’t see eye to eye but because that fake despicable mormon (moron) got cot with his pants down and he is gone be swinging together with some other peoples from his family. so lets be clear me too would love to see a quick end to this,but i also know that he is surrounded with enemies. please be understanding this PRESIDENT is not GOD but he is definitely worthy to be the UNITED STATES PRESIDENT AND MOST DEFINITELY A REAL WORLD LEADER
Learn Spanish before the Wall is completed at the southern border. You may need to seek political asylum there or the many seemingly sane countries south of Mexico where “covid” is not being used as an excuse to hold down the people. This could be the end of the American Empire. We’ll see. Or maybe I’ll be long gone south by then: glad my parents gave me a head start by living in Puerto Rico in my youth.
AK in VT
There’s a chess game going on, Jon. Trump isn’t frozen and he isn’t afraid. He didn’t need all these headaches, but he loves this country and he’s fighting with everything he has to turn it around. All kinds of things are going on behind the scene. But the thing that’s going on out front is that he’s allowing the people to see just how corrupt Big Pharma, the Media and the DS D’s and R’s are. He can’t just tell the people how corrupt they are. They have to see it for themselves. And sometimes they have to feel pain before they’re willing to open their eyes. The country is too divided. We can’t just go to civil war. The country would be done. We need people to open their eyes, so that what Trump is doing last’s beyond his presidency. He’s trying to win them over. The ground work is being laid. Tune into the X22report on Youtube to see the larger plan. You’re absolutely right about the corona scamdemic and the virus. I’m totally on board. Now check out the larger political picture, which involves the Fed and the fractional reserve money system.
Yah, well i don’t know what is going on today but last night’s news was reporting that President Trump had come out against Fauci- there was a list of ALL THE TIMES FAUCI WAS WRONG released. ..and this is why the President would no longer listen to him.
Make no mistake about this, this is PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE on a scale that is unbelievable to most people. They do not understand the way they have been slowly drip fed POISON over the years, demoralizing them, rotting their concept of themselves and America..BY THE MEDIA
Who is the media controlled by? (the globalists)
Is it any coincednece that every tv show and movie portrays us as ignorant stupid mouthbreathing gits?
Think back to the 70s when it started with Archie Bunker..in the ninties the Simpsons, and King of the Hill..we have graduated from being ridiculed in the media to now having the darkest and filthiest characters protrayed as somehow tragically heroic.
This is the culmination of over 50 years of slow grinding demoralization and psychological warfare.
They are going all in right now because their game is falling apart.
It is always darkest before the dawn.
Hange in there, it is all about to break loose.
Legal definition of reversion.
the right, especially of the original owner or their heirs, to possess or succeed to property on the death of the present possessor or at the end of a lease.
“the reversion of property”
Trump to wage war! (lol) Hell, he’s wearing a mask now with the POTUS logo,,, what an insult to the logo.
How can the few normal politicians who are against the mandatory mask wearing and other unconstitutional dictates going to fight it now that he is wearing one?
His voters are likely the idiots wearing the masks and anti social distancing. The first to line up for the injection. They don’t care the poisons that come with it,,, they just want to feel safe.
The politicians have killed businesses, put millions out of work while the cattle thank them for saving them from what? A flu? Soon they’ll be broke and wondering what happened as they live in their car.
The media is always telling us how great things are. The stocks are breaking records while the FED throws trillions of free dollars at the giant corporations that are then funneling it to Marxists groups like BLM and Antifa. Yet, I see people discussing the riots and destruction of property while drinking cokes,,, while Coke Cola gives millions to BLM which fullel it to Antifa. As does others like Facebook, Target, Walmart, Microsoft, McDonalds, Amazon and tens of others. We are feeding our own destruction and no one gives a sh*t.
No Jon,,, it’s not just the president and the wannabe tyrants like Cuomo,,, It’s everyone,,, especially the masked morons,,, contributing to the demise of the nation.
Trumps is all in on this. He offered Gates a job as White House Science and technology Policy Adviser (turned down) , assigned Fauci to the Corona task force, brought in Dark Winter veterans Kadlec and Azar, assigned Moderna/GSK Shareholder to head Operation Warp Speed, put Ex Google/team 8 Eric Schmidt (Bilderberger, TLC) as head of NSAIC (his report called for structural changes to society so we can be more like China so as to expedite AI tech development without being hampered by privacy rights), has Bilderberger Big Data Peter Thiel (Palantir and handling CDC health data) and Israeli loyalist Alderson as his biggest supporters (check out Carbyne, Diagnostic Robotics, Cybereason, cyberNYC, NY smart city project)- israel tech companies all in on this.
The states are following the White House Task Force guidelines on opening up, social distancing and masks. States reporting the most cases getting most of the 175 billion aid designated by the CARE ACT. Trillions going to big companies (bond purchases, loans) affected by the lock down dwarfs Bush/Obama bail out of banks in 2008/2009. His Goldman Sachs Treasury head Mnuchin said those getting loans more than 2 million most likely will not have to pay them back.
Finally a comment that is too close to the truth for comfort. Time for some articles to be written about the the “who” that surrounds and counsels our Presidents and what their real agenda is.
And at this late date it shouldn’t come as any surprise to most posters here that it is to push us into the United Nations, “shining city on the hill”, one world government.
“It is a small club and YOU AINT GONNA BE IN IT”, unless you have enough health left to be a useful slave.
This is the stage known as the narcissistic discard.
Get familiar with the cycle of abuse.
Government is an arm of Banking. Their compassion, empathy and care have all been numbed by their $numbers.
They appear alien to us. So you’re appealing to bankers and government for care? They run horrifying military campaigns worldwide and thieve regularly and routinely from the people. Where is the love and compassion in patriarchy? You will not find it there. When we look to government shouldn’t we be expecting barbarism, number and $number juggling, doublespeak, word trickery, thievery, confusion, scripts and a boatload of theatrics, drama, drama, drama.
An economy is nothing more than convincing you to abandon your own life as you would have lived it, so they can thieve and convert all of your former natural human activities, abilities, responsibilities, interactions in real families and real life communities into businesses, fake communities, fake relationships, inferior goods and services, which we then must pay for when we leave our homes and go off to work to shuffle papers for low and fluctuating wages that never match up to accessing our real needs, that or behave as beggars and wait for handouts. “Degrade and destroy.” Came right out of the mouth of a president.
Should banking, should government…. ? No.
Well, sadly, since a hefty majority of people in this country are loving that little gnome (AND their brainwashing), enthusiastically embracing their masks, and enjoying living in fear of “the virus,” I suppose that Trump could ensure that he will absolutely be denied a second term, by following your advice (coming out like a bull in a china shop instead of planning strategically). Then where would we be? He has already done things which are unprecedented, for instance, cutting funding to WHO, stopping the TPP, “muzzling” the CDC, ensuring medical “religious freedom,” etc. (all of which the media twists into something bad).
Thomas Paine was never President, and he didn’t live in these times. And few have knowledge of what the strategies are, and what is the necessity behind how they are carried out.
The evil is much deeper than most are aware of:
Read this recent article. Then read the comments after it, and weep. This is how the general public thinks. The result of TTWTP (Telling Truth While Targeted President).
Sue, the comments to the article were hard to read. People quoting “science” and msm as the truth without any real understanding or even attempts at doing so. (As Jon has mentioned, you can be inside the narrative and prove it wrong using their own facts.)
I do think that Trump did no favors for himself by who he chose to quote and why. Had he chosen someone with more credibility or background in science or something else along those lines, it would be harder to argue or perhaps some people would start to look into the information for themselves.
But maybe, just maybe this will mark a turning point. At least one can hope.
Do not be disheartened by “comments”sections in main stream rags.
The news is fake, designed for emotional reaction, and the comment sections are rigged to enhance an agenda. The power that thinks that it is has many tools to stone wall opposition and make one feel powerless. Yahoo has a special place where my comments go, (sort of like being sent to the corner with a dunce cap) lol.
You are never powerless, but you can believe that you are.
Fauci, yes, it’s about Fauci, but what about the guy he hangs out with?
Trump’s CDC director has a controversial past
Dr. Robert R. Redfield, Director of the CDC
Dr. Robert R Redfield – Wiki
Redfield’s parents were both scientists at the National Institutes of Health; Military trained.
I couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblance to this guy who stared in a leading role in the Sandy Hook Hoax episode as the Medical Examiner.
Conn. Medical Examiner — “Probably The Worst I’ve Seen”
Bodies of Conn. shooting victims being returned to families
who dies in perfect timing for the live exercise, the breakout of the coronavirus hoax
Former Chief State Medical Examiner H. Wayne Carver II dies (67)
So this guy could fully embody his most recent incarnation in his staring role as the Direction of the notorious bio-weapons lab, the CDC.
Dr. Robert R. Redfield
Wiki says born 1951
Dr. H. Wayne Carver II – Obituary 2/21/1952 – 12/26/19
…the blame, shame, guilt shifted to the public, while nobody is talking about closing down all bio-weapons labs, ending wars to keep the people around the world safe from any number of things governments and bankers are doing and allowing to disrupt our lives and harm the public.
What about the voice? Is it a match? What do you think?
Medical Examiner: This is the worst I’ve seen
There’s no data showing children drive coronavirus spread: CDC Director
CDC director speaks out about schools reopening l GMA
CDC guidelines is a portfolia, a spectrum to choose from, crazy.
Whenever they say look at this, I find myself looking elsewhere. Sorry for all the links, but it’s never just one link that tells the story. I could be completely wrong on this, but heyho, I could be right. They could be running short on “expert” actors.
Jon, your anger and frustration are palpable….
The enemy invaded your country on December 23rd 1913.
It’s been hollowing out the US and every other nation on this earth ever since. And doing so from the inside out.
????????????????????’???? ???????????? ????????????????????.
Trump was their Trojan Horse, a creature ???????????????? The Swamp ???????????? The Swamp.
A puppet-on-a-string in the puppet theater.
The puppet stage lined with the nation’s flag end-to-end which seems to be nothing but a license to lie through one’s teeth. Day in, day out, relentlessly. Not just the US, but every other nation to which this poison has been exported.
Fauci, of course, involved in all of it, while Bill Gates pretends to fund, while actually we taxpayers are funding our own demise.
1 of 4 “Progress indicators by September 2020: Global Preparedness Monitoring Board
• The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two systemwide training and simulation exercises, including one covering the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.” P.39
196 Countries signed onto this UN/WHO/IHR, which is what makes it a global Plandemic. The “W” administration signed us onto the “International Health Regulations” in 2005 ushering in the “Lethal respiratory pathogen” Who knows whether current is 1 of 2 or the “rebound” is 2 of 2 or more to come?
Mike Pompeo did surprise Trump in a press conference when he mentioned this ‘is a live exercise.”
So much information, so little knowledge of where it is all going. Reading a Jon post keeps me as sane as it gets these days.
Thanks, Jon. A hard hitting right on target article. I hope Mr. Trump sees it, and it gavanizes him to action.
The US of America is under the control of 3 people, 4 if we include the Jesuit Pope.
And they are:
1. The Head of the Rockefeller Family
2. The head of the Rothschild Family
3. Premier Supremo Vladimir Putin
The Multinationals Corporations including the Big Pharmaceutical Companies and the 13 top Multibillionaires including Bill Gates and his wife Melinda and Arab Sheiks are in the pockets of the above three. The Corrupt Chinese government are playing along. That was agreed when Evelyn Rothschild went there to set up a weather Monitoring system. Present then were some Pentagon people and US government ministers.
This was revealed in 8-11 June 2006 at the Ottawa meeting of the Bilderberg “Group”
It was decided openly then that the US (economy) will be sacrificed for the sake of humanity. As one of the participants said ” I feel sorry for the American people”.
You might be surprised to see Putin on top but it is on record by the MI5 special branch that he had several meetings with The Rothschild Family including one where a member of the Rockefellers was there.
Putin has been put as Head Supreme of Russia until 2036.
All the heads of state in the west (Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, Japan) will be gone soon will be gone soon. There is a talk that Trump will be sidelined and the US will be taken over by Russian troops on the ground and the U.N. (which is controlled and run by Putin and his cohorts including W.H.O.) by the end of this year.
There is no deliberate plan to destroy the country and the world, with the biggest outbreak of mass hysteria in history. It is entirely unconscious, it is a sleepwalking into oblivion. It is mass hysteria, which has no deliberateness or wilful intent to it.
This will never end so long as they don’t end the testing. And Trump like everybody else has no idea that there is no virus there, he believes there is a virus so at the outset he is trumped by the medical ‘experts’. If people don’t know what went down with HIV, with vaccines, then they don’t know. And Trump does not know. He has given the mad medical men the store, all leaders of all nations have no idea, and have surrendered to the insanity of the med profession. Even if he knew, he couldn’t do much, because he has the relentless opposition of the NIH, NIAIDS, FDA, the media, the clueless hysterical public, the doctors, the ‘intellectuals’ etc. Remember what happened when Mbeki opposed the AIDS role out in South Africa? He was just steamrollered.
If we refuse as a society to face facts about the mad mad bad med establishment and the nightmare of virology, the biggest fiasco in the history of science, and we do so refuse, then we will pay the price we are paying. Either we end modern allopathic medicine or it ends us. Clearly it is ending us.
These medical idiots will never come to their senses, for they have no senses to come to. There is no conspiracy here, they are simply mad. And they have made everybody else mad too.
And this is how the world ends, so it seems. Certainly we are tottering on the brink of collapse.
Beautifully stated, Silverman.
You’re right, it’s a form of madness. The worst mass hysteria ever.
Fauci and company are drunk on power. They are power mad, the worst form of hubris there is.
First thing we need to realise is we are all slaves, next is how we going to get out of of being a slave. I know for sure death will be a release from the shackles of life
Just say “no”.
Bit hard saying no to gene programming… birth slowing wither in old age we can’t say no to gene unless you commit suacide. My point is we all slaves to the gene programming so maybe we all should of said No before coming to this world of genetic drones.
I see what you’re saying, but we have to start somewhere. We are slaves because we consented to it.
Say “no” to vaccines, no to voting if the candidate doesn’t do as promised or doesn’t promote a reasonable platform, no to the mask, no to banks, no to MSM, no to allopathic medicine, no to crap food. There are lots more.
I’ve only been able to say no to 3 of the above, and 1 of those three not in all cases, due to circumstances beyond my control at the present time (health).
It’s a start. It’s scary sometimes. It’s empowering.
Short of a miraculous turn-around in world events, it’s maybe the only ‘choice’ we have while we still have choices.
Trump is a crypto Jew and Freemason. He is surrounded by the same people. He is deeply involved in this fake virus psyop. His relationship with the City of London and Israel is well documented. He will not be coming to your rescue. US politics represent a classic divide and conquer strategy. And it works on roughly half of the US population. It’s not about you and your pseudo rights. It’s about enslaving and killing you. Wake up people. Strong post to follow.
Would someone(s) please send this article to the White House. They need a real wake up call as if what is happening to this country is not enough.
Trump is just the Banking cabal’s UN’s( shadow govt) puppet .
Who is getting more wealthy from all the extra borrowing ( covid costs)than the banksters.
I am sick of everyone talking and obese by littel more than a front man that they wanted to tell the Americans ” You’re fired”.
These men, banksters, ( Rockefeller, Rothschild and Co) are pretty twisted. They have a black sense of humor .
I have this to say. Of all the doom and gloom; The fear mongering on one side and, we are going to be enslaved by the top 1% on the other side, I have to quote the Scottish Bard Robbie Burns from his
“To a mouse”.
>>” The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!”<<
All our technology depends on electricity. The "Gangsters" who run the show now are relying on the last 10 to 20 years of the developed modern technology. But a blast from our friendly Star and a CME directed towards the Earth, the size and strength of Carrington super flare that caused the Solar storm of 1859 and fried all electrical equipment on the planet Earth at that time, might occur any time and the world is not prepared for it. NASA is vigilantly watching. The Sun is asleep now but when it wakes up we should run for cover, unless we enter into a Maunder minimum, in which case it is predicted by some people in NASA and by Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University that we are going to have a mini ice age. In both scenarios millions will die. In the case of super CME it will be within weeks and in the case of a mini Ice Age it will be in a few years.
If a super CME is directed towards the Earth all electrical equipment will be fried and a lot of them will take months or even years to be replaced including the huge transformers of the world's electricity grid. If that is not enough to destroy our civilisation and take us back to Stone Age, there is a chance we might have multi meltdowns of our 440 nuclear plants and make this planet uninhabitable for thousands of years
If this happens one would wish to be dead than alive.
Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU Jon!! SOMEONE had to say it to Trump and I’m glad it’s you that has done it. I have good friends, associates and family members who are SOOOO in bed with the dangerous idea that EVERYTHING the media and other ‘reliable sources’ is true, it just wants to make me scream sometimes. I guess the only people who WILL change and save this country are those who stubbornly refuse to allow others to tell them what to think and do because it’s for ‘their own protection’. Keep on doing what you’re doing and that goes for the rest of you brave, intelligent and liberty-loving people out there. You guys’n’gals ROCK!
Jon Rappaport presented in a previous post the analogy of the photo of 510th St in New York at rush hour. The viewer is either “inside the photo” analyzing contradictions. Or they’re “outside the photo”, realizing there is no 510th St in New York.
Well, there is no COVID virus. We outside the picture don’t need to waste time analyzing contradictions within it.
But what is Trump up to, and how can he be so out of touch with his supporters? He holds up the “promise” (to me a threat) of a COVID vaccine as if it were the light at the end of the tunnel (see McEnany press video today) when in actuality the vaccine is an oncoming train.
What is missing in Trump’s mind? Is he under threat of assassination, or the murder of his family? What is the cause of his seeming blind obeisance, which sometimes appears as childish naivete?
