In the modern secular church of fakers, they tell us anger is wrong, outrage is wrong, acceptance in hypnotic sleep is what we must aim for.

Always bow to “smooth transitions.” When there is disagreement, swallow your bile, give in, make peace with tyranny. The pain will only last for a little while. Then you will reach a higher understanding.

The authorities and their minions of the press have the final word. Our job is to fit ourselves into their scheme of things.

WE must be flexible. THEY can be inflexible.

If these rules seem backwards and upside down, that is OUR problem, not THEIRS.

This is the position of our would-be masters.

I realize your attention is focused on the election and vote-fraud right now. But I want to comment on the disaster we’re all facing these days:

The COVID restrictions. Lockdowns—de facto in-house arrest. Limits on public gatherings. Economic devastation.

Cutting to the bottom line: There is NO state of emergency that justifies sweeping away Americans’ basic freedoms. No war, natural or manmade disaster.

NO emergency can override the meaning and spirit of the Constitution.

There is a line that can’t be crossed for any reason. Otherwise, an official or legislature or court could, armed with an excuse, cancel the Constitution.

That’s exactly what’s happened. COVID. It’s diabolically clever, because officials will say: “You can’t make a choice about how to live your life, because what you do affects other people. If you carry the virus and live out in the open, you’ll infect those around you. Therefore, you must obey the commands we lay down…”

You must agree to in-house arrest, if a gangster governor deems it necessary. You can’t go to church. Your children can’t go to school. You have to shut down your business. You can’t earn a living. You need to go on the public dole.

The infernal logic of this is inescapable, once you allow the crossing of the Constitutional line. Then, freedom is gone. The United States is gone.

I’ve spent the past nine months proving that COVID is a medical and scientific fraud. There is no emergency or great danger. But even if there were, that bright line from freedom to slavery cannot be breached. Or we all go down.

Instead, we have to rise up. We have to live life, work, move forward. WE HAVE TO OPEN UP THE ECONOMY OURSELVES, every which way we can, regardless of orders from governments—federal, state, or local.

Protests? Yes. But more than that, we go back to work.

All over this country, we stand on our natural and Constitutional freedoms. We don’t give in.

Our government is based on the consent of the governed. WE decide. We aren’t property of the State. We aren’t products shaped by the State. We weren’t born to be medical patients all our lives.

No one said this would be easy. We aren’t living in easy times. It does no good to park ourselves in a swamp of complaining about what should be and spin our wheels.

Again: WE OPEN UP THE ECONOMY EVERY WHICH WAY WE CAN. We FIND a way. We barter and trade, if necessary. I’m told that, during the Depression of the 1930s, local citizens in America created 3000 currencies. Their own forms of money.

It’s an option. There are many options, if people think and plan. Right now (and I receive reports), there are pockets all over the country where the economy is wide open. People are ignoring government mandates. And they’re not wearing masks or distancing.

What about the political Left? They seem to want the COVID restrictions. They want to obey political dictates. They are willing to submit to governors’ edicts. They bow down and believe and accept the statements of public health officials as if they were written in stone.

What was written in stone, with a war just past, was the Constitution. And that law of the land has remained visible, despite all attempts to erase it.

“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.” Thomas Paine, 1776.

Should we be sidetracked and tricked and bedeviled now, by these politicians and their official experts, we will find ourselves in a new world not of our making; surely not a world matching our desires.

Instead, we will be nothing more than units and numbers, organized to fit into slots, our labor harvested for purposes beyond our control, in a new normal no free human can tolerate.

We are being told to walk on a road that leads to that place.

As strong as the State seems, this is an illusion, because if enough of us refuse—millions of us—we will win. The State and its machinations will be exposed as just another tyranny, in a long line of tyrannies that fell and failed.

Be free. Live free. If there is Rescue From Above, isn’t it possible the Rescue is waiting to see, first, whether we show the courage that signals we will use that help?

Whether you believe the COVID operation was designed to wreak economic destruction, or whether the devastation was an offshoot managed and directed by lunatic politicians, the effect is the same—and the giant X painted across the Constitution is apparent to those who can see. We are living in a post-Constitutional America. That has been the case for a long time, but the violations are so egregious now, no one who is a patriot can look away without betraying his principles.

We are in a tunnel. We are carrying the light. Around us are sheep and doomsayers and hostile actors. They have redefined freedom in Orwellian terms to mean obedience. They now see privation and isolation as consecrations to a new cause: allegiance to a phantom germ.

That America could be brought down in such a preposterous way is evidence of how far this country has traveled from its origins. Its founding ideas.

Our enemies want to destroy those ideas. They attack them from all sides. They say justice never existed here, and they will bring it about now.

But all they know is destruction.

We will outflank them if we have the will.

So let us have the will.

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.” John Adams, 1772.

The night appears long, but we can end it.

We are the cure.

This is the war.

    Yearning for the Wind

    I yearn
    For a mysterious wind
    To sweep me off my feet,
    I know not
    Where it will take me
    I am as an autumn leaf
    Twirling, whorling, tumbling
    Toward oblivion?
    Oh spirit wind
    I submit joyously
    To your whimsical dance,
    Through mountain mists
    Where with
    The wild eddies of fate
    I will have a secret romance,
    I long to ride your
    Wispy tendrils that strum
    The atmosphere
    with sacred song
    Breathing life into
    This broken heart
    From where did you come?
    Riding down from the holy hollows
    Of the distant ridges blue
    To this wasteland
    Where love keeps changing hue,
    Can I ever thank thee
    For sharing your heavenly esters
    Stolen from
    The floral meadows above,
    From the lusty winds
    Of early Spring to
    Those embracing
    Summer zephyrs
    And on to the liberating
    Autumnal breezes
    Presaging the harsh
    Winter bellows of Boreas,
    You are a magnificent
    Shape shifter
    Sharing the breath
    Of our dear mother
    Who presides over
    This realm of magic,
    Pulsing with fairy play
    Seducing us
    By lifting her beauteous gown
    That covers her earthen womb,
    That gives life
    To that tortured blossom
    Above whirl of angry thorns,
    Her breath
    Invigorating this
    Carbon phantasm of love
    That tortures us with
    A beauty sublime
    And with the mystery
    That hides between
    The bloody pages of history,
    Her breath carries
    Us away
    On waves of eternal bliss
    That caress my face
    Tantalizing my senses
    With freedom’s lonely taste
    And her ephemeral kiss.

      That was one beautiful and gorgeous piece of writer quite breathtaking bit of wordplay quite breathtaking really enjoyed reading it. Thank you

      • John Crowther says:

        Amazingly evocative you have a great way with words there are a few mistakes in my last reply didn’t know how to edit it but I’m sure you get my drift brilliant wordplay

      • Jaime Jonas says:

        Can the states secede over the 2020 elections??? can cities, states become SANCTUARY CITIES FOR NON COVYD RESISTANCE…city ordinances UNdoing mandatory masks???

  2. Robert C says:

    Jon, I hope this gets spread across the planet. So true. So real. California “curfew” should have been a kick in ALL Californians asses. Nope!
    They just comply. Like the days of Hitler and Huessein.
    Government needs to be taken down and restarted with fresh, good willed men and women. If they cheat and lie and break the same laws they write, they should be punished!! Just like the average American gets punished. Politicians are weak. They cannot live in a REAL world. They have to bully and force people to live under THEIR fantasy world with forces of intimidation, physical violence, coercion. Using taxpayers own money against themselves, while they (politicians, lawyers, etc) hide their chicken #%*! asses from the very people they betray. Prison for them is appropriate!

    • Donna says:

      Robert, Peggy Hall is working to open the eyes of Californians. You can find her at thehealthyamerican.org There are others across the country who are doing the same.

      In the end good will triumph over evil; but, how evil do things have to get before the good rise up and take back their country and the Constitution? The great reset is not sustainable.

      • Abeb says:

        It will get worse before it gets better. When I am out and about, I am the only one without a mask. My god, even mountain biking in the woods I see people wearing them. Pathetic.

        • Honest liberty says:

          And they are getting bolder ever day now that their unlikable master defrauded Trump.

          I had two proles instigate with me at Lowe’s, one calling me a pussy. I bleeted at the first one after all attempts at civility failed.

          Now mind you, I’ve got a massive beard, long hair, Daytona 500 hat, camo jacket, compact in my cowboy boots (not that he’d know)… I look like a homeless redneck and it’s clear I’m not a city folk type.

          I looked him square up and asked him ” do I look like the guy you want to call a pussy? Say it again. Right now.”

          Of course he clammed up. I’m not a fighter type but when someone calls me a pussy because I’m not wearing a mask… I’ll throw down, even if he’s 6″ taller than me. The slaves are feeling emboldened, at least in Denver.

          It’s getting worse and eventually they are going to push family men like my to crack their dome in public.

          DO. NOT. COMPLY.

        • Zoey says:

          I live in MA. It’s like living in a mental institution.

          Jon is so right. It’s not the governments job to make health decisions for the masses. Especially when their decisions increased the suicide rate by 30%.

          The same government/CDC who claims that one death is too many has ignored the thousands of suicide deaths as result of lockdown/isolation & are putting aluminum & mercury into vaccines that kills/permanently disables thousands of kids per year.

        • Dor Zoschak says:

          I also don’t wear their stupid masks. And I’m constant blown away by the idiots that do! God will take us when He wants. Not any dumb ass china virus.

          • Tubby says:

            Watch out for buses. etc. The virus is only dumb until you get it- then it kicks you around a bit, knocks you down and steals your breath away. Gee God, thanks for that. Wearing masks is easy, dead simple, maybe helps (that’s certainly not disproved yet) along with social distancing. Why would a responsible person not go along with it for a while, it’s so easy?

      • Robert C says:

        Thank you, Donna.

    • Arizona says:

      READ YOUR BIBLE ,prison doesn’t work,when they get out, they go right back to their old tricks,and everyone pays the price for LISTENING TO BLEEDING HEARTS AND MORONS…

      • Robert C says:

        What is your point, Arizona?

        • Arizona says:

          Robert,enjoy your chains in the FEMA SLAVE LABOR CAMPS,or prepare to fight, when TRUMP ORDERS THE UN MILITARY TROOPS TO ATTACK,him and mike pompeo have been bring them in to america by the thousands for months,TO KILL AMERICANS AND TAKE THEIR WEAPONS..and maybe your children…thats my point..

            I’ve been seriously ruminating on this likelihood.

    • Chaz Strait says:

      There are people who will always comply because they are mind-controlled drones.God is sending powerful energies to this world daily and doing his best to break them loose of that mind control and wake them up. However with that said some people have become so docile but nothing will ever wake them up to the truth of what’s really going on in our world.

  3. Robert C says:

    By the way: does everybody know that discussing this or copy pasting these excellent articles or anything that goes against our own beliefs, such as the Covid scam, get taken down on social medias like Nextdoor Neighbor? Think private messaging is safe? Think again. They go in and remove your ” private messages ” if they deem it’s against “their rules”. This is first hand experience. Obviously, more government controlled media. Correct me if I’m wrong.
    This is an FYI. I reserve the right ( while I’m allowed) to deny any misinformation is my fault 🙂

  4. Low Voltage says:

    The “Matrix” handled this topic well. If you abandon the Matrix, you wind up living on the Nebuchadnezzar, and the vast majority of people aren’t ready for that. However bad life is in the Matrix, there’s always comfort and safety in the herd. Even if they admire your freedom and lifestyle, they won’t risk what they have.

    Even the clever ones won’t accept proof of the most obvious frauds, yet I still find myself trying new techniques to undermine their faith in the system. I can see them freeze, and they stare into the abyss. But they quickly regain their conviction and dismiss my sabotage as nothing more than quaint conversation, and the next time we speak, they don’t lower their guard.

    • Monik says:

      What means “live on the Nebuchadnezzar”?

      • Epicurious says:

        I think it was the ‘ship’ that the ‘goodies’ travelled around on. I ned to go back and view these again. BTW these were made in Sydney, Australia where we have had some restrictions but less than the US. Naturally politicians and their chief medical witchdoctors are spruiking lies but I don’t think they are in on the big Con as yet. Perhaps we are too small to worry about yet unless of course we ever became a Sweden!

    • Haniel Adhar says:

      That was a good movie.

    • Arthur Danu says:

      That’s a great analogy, Low Voltage! But I would say it really only applies to the ECONOMIC SIDE of reality.

      Having left the Matrix myself back in 2002, I would say the last 18 years were the best times of my life, and I actually feel WEALTHIER than many of the so called “1%”.

      One of the things you gain an abundance of outside of the matrix is TIME. I’ve hung around quite of few of what would be considered rich people, and I can tell you that most of them are NOT HAPPY. They actually LOOK for reasons to be upset and miserable, because they can’t find the essential power within them that would make them happy. It would mean risking their “place” or status in the fake society they live in.

      To those who wonder how they will survive if they leave the matrix, all I can say, from experience, is that “The UNIVERSE PROVIDES!” Believe in your divinity, and good things will show up for you.

      Say YES to them when they do…and THANK YOU!

      At some point, the RIDE IS OVER for everybody. Enjoy it while you are on it!

      • Owen says:

        Yes, Arthur good one. The key is to opt out as much as possible and get your mind to not commit to the illusion. Challenge fear and it will go away. I have begun to pray: Heavenly Father – bless me, protect me, strengthen me and guide me. To live a life of abundance is to know it is quality over quantity.

    • kathleen Donnelly says:

      I agree the obvious frauds are out their, in the open in the UK but still their conviction that this virus will be passed on is on the forefront. Its as if every one is a carrier.. you have to be part of it.. Well I am not part of it! maybe a small cog in a big wheel, but I will state my case to anyone.

  5. ak in vt says:

    Dear Readers

    I offer three quotes. One from one of my favourite books, the other two from patriots of the American Revolution:

    from Henry and the Great Society, by HL Roush:

    “We do not seem to remember that as we walk our feet are creating upon the impressionable earth a path that, although we are long gone, our children will continue to follow without a thought or reason in regard to the rightness of it.

    from John Adams:

    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. … The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, … They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. … A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once, lost, is lost forever.”

    And, from that scoundrel, Samuel Adams:

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or arms. CROUCH DOWN AND LICK THE HANDS, WHICH FEED YOU. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” (EMPHASIS mine).

    Remember that as sure as you entered this world naked, you shall leave it naked.

    Regards

    • Cman says:

      Thank you for this, AK. Real nuggets of inspiration and hope!

      • Mike says:

        We don’t need “hope”-dope. We need actionable intelligence, because WE are being asked to walk the plank, for THEIR economic system falling apart 6 ways from Sunday.
        And that doesn’t mean just (more-of-the-same) running away.
        They have, going on a couple centuries now, controlled us with (what they call) ‘money’ and eCONomics.
        It’s THEIR system and our childish subservience to it that is in the process of dissolving.
        Those who can’t handle this might have a tough time, but at the end of the day it is just (like common sense, or anything else) an attitude.

        • ak in vt says:

          Thank you for a response Mike. I would like to add that the founders did not believe in the monetary system we now have. They looked for freedom from such. They looked for independence. They strove for self-reliance.

          Understanding this and striving for it is the hope for us who believe in Liberty. Action is necessary. What that action is, in my opinion, is a removal from society (some slowly, some quickly) that we do not rely on government and big business, etc…; not going to caves, but going back to self-reliance and learning that we should be satisfied with the clothes on our backs, the roof over our head and the food in our bellies — everything beyond that is not to be strived for, but should be had only without debt (yes, very difficult).

          Regards

    I shall use my imagination, my will, my inner resources, my outer resources to outflank centralization of power.

    I know they are deeply organized to kill liberty and freedom.

    I know that during the beginning of the fake pandemimic, that tough americans seemed to disappear and nearly no where to be found. Nearly everyone masked up, ect.

    But, not any longer. Though there was a big long delay, people all over the world and even here now in America are recognizing its time to take a freedom stand and support freedom and nothing else.

    Say no to civil war and technocracy. Say yes to the Law of The Land.

    “In the modern

    “Should we

    and bedeviled now,
    by these politicians
    and their official experts…”

    “If there is
    Rescue From Above,
    isn’t it possible
    the Rescue is waiting to see,
    first, whether
    we show the courage
    that signals
    we will use that help?”

    “They now see
    privation
    and isolation
    as consecrations
    to a new cause…”

    “We are in a tunnel.
    We are carrying the light.”

    “We are the cure.

    This is the war.”

    What can we do? What should we do? I’m a mother of small children and I agree with you. How can I make an impact?

      • Mike says:

        Nice song. I bet their parents or grandparents were farmers (a.k.a. possessing inherent “common sense”).
        Did ya’ll know that family farms/farmers have been being destroyed in America since the farm depression of the early ’80s? Is that in the vicinity of where about half of the meth-heads come from?
        Things (and certainly things like that) don’t just happen by accident. They happen by *policy*.
        Historically, US economic policy was known as “The American System”. It was compromised in what might be called the Lincoln-to-Johnson transition 1.5 centuries ago, but managed to linger on, for another century, into the early 1970’s. Of course, as we all know, it’s been increasing “Globalization” “neoliberal” madness in the half-century since then (a.k.a., more simply, as Imperialism).
        Is America supposed to be an “Imperialist” country? Does Imperialism serve ‘the [inheritance] elite’ or the vox pop majority?
        No, that’s not a false dichotomy. The 100-page (or whatever it was) “Princeton Study” [Gilens & Page, 2014] revealed, empirically, that Americans in that decade had approx. zero influence on the country’s political institutions.
        Imperialism always ‘leads’ to that- and not just because of all the military spending (much of which goes, I’m sure we’ve all noticed, to high-tech R&D gadgets that increase productivity). It’s more because every Empire worth its salt has been a food exporter- basically making it all work around cheap commodity prices. Dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn (the Jon Rappoport of the USSR, and later Putin’s guru) famously attributed the 70-year life span of the Soviet Union to primarily that factor- RUINING their own “primary sector” (as in the foundation for everything else that’s downstream) raw materials & the agriculture sector, decade-after-decade-after-decade, in order to keep the rest of the Warsaw Pact nations hooked on the subsidized cheap grain. Guess what? After a half-century of that, the USSR couldn’t keep it up anymore, and the rest of the Warsaw Pact ‘voted with their feet’ for freedom & sovereignty pretty much the first year that Moscow’s Imperialism started faltering.
        What does that have to do with the USA today? America, in deference to Founding Fathers, and the traditional “American System”, etc., attempted to (and did) maintain “Parity pricing” for agriculture and other raw materials in the FDR & Truman Admns. of the mid-20th century, but abandoned the (successful) policy in 1952. [Hey, an Empire has got to have some ‘carrots’, not just ‘sticks’ to offer]… and farm prices and farmers have been in the cross-hairs ever since… going on 69 years now (2021), compared to the Soviet Union being felled by such looting and ransacking of the true “wealth” of the nation after 70 years (1921-91).
        Anyone who doesn’t know the difference between “money” and “wealth” is a fool… like not knowing the difference between the (derivative) Moon and the (primary) Sun. And I’m sure we all know where the word “luna-tic” comes from- someone following the WRONG thing (like a copy of a copy of a copy). It (of course) doesn’t have to be that way. There just has to be de-programming. “Oligarchy” ain’t pretty. Americans knew what to do with it in 1776.

  9. Nora Claypool says:

    One of your best, Jon. In a nutshell, without our consent, the freakish control system crumbles. As for those clueless souls who don masks and trudge along six feet from everyone else–those who can’t step outside of their programming– to say, “NO,” frightens them, so those of us with stones will say it for them. They’ll benefit. They are often running around madly in the Matrix, too busy to avert their gaze to reality, and a few might even miss the Matrix, or want to stay in because it’s familiar. We all have to choose the reality we exist in, whether it’s the fake one provided for us, or the one we create to live in.

    I refuse being “rescued.” I’ll handle freedom. Each time I encounter opposition from supposed authorities, I repeat “I do not consent; in this country, government is with the consent of the governed.” I’ve used some profane language with the gatekeepers, and it amuses me how shocked they are when I’m nasty! They deserve it.

  10. ken says:

    Jon has delivered proof that the virus is likely a fake right from the CDC, WHO and other real documentation. Those that say the virus is real never present any documentation. Just believe!

    The problem is those that say the facts indicates the virus is real never present the facts. Many a pundit will come out and say the “Virus is Real” then proceed to say it’s not that deadly and maybe lockdowns are not required especially after the vaccine is out.

    Some of these pundits have extremely large audiences and are well respected. Their audiences will accept what they say at face value.

    A post I attempted to make yesterday named one of the pundits that is most aggressive. The post never saw the light of day,,, I am assuming because I named the offending pundit.

    The problem I see is these mainstream “pro virus” pundits have extremely large audiences compared to Jon. Add to that, they are actually making money, selling subscription etc on the back of this alleged virus. These are the folks that will justify the lockdowns and the vaccines coming soon. They are the ones that will assist in making many people lives miserable and possibly get extremely ill or die from the forced vaccine.

    Jon says “we are at war”. He is right. And the phrase “All is fair in love and war” comes to mind.

    regards….

  11. Dave Freedom says:

    Jon,

    This is possibly the best post that you have written. It definitely makes the most important point. It really doesn’t matter if the virus exists or not. It really doesn’t matter how dangerous it is if it does exist. Nothing is important enough to override the constitution.

    Please keep up the good fight.

    Six months ago I would read about the lockdowns being a “beta test” for a takeover. It was not a test. They won, without firing a shot. Liberty was decapitated, but the body is still running around not knowing its already dead. Yes people are rising up now, but its too late. The damage done to the economy and millions of now out of work people cannot be undone.
    Say no to the mRNA vaccines, which change your DNA permanently. Get ready to be “yellow starred”, ostracized, and removed from society if you say no.

      Thats exactly what Im afraid of…..that “they” have already won without firing a shot…..and us idiots are walking around confused. I’m still hopeful tho….If I lose that it’s all over.

    Hi Jon, A request: how can we fight back? This morning I went to Walmart to buy a couple things for Turkey Day.

    The mask Nazi accosted me at the door, and demanded that I wear a useless maks. I dutifully replied that I could not wear a mask safely.

    He promptly started chasing me all over the store, and would not stop bothering me.

    So I said “LEAVE ME ALONE!” loudly. He wouldn’t. I fled the store rather than face arrest.
    Thanks!

    • zdb says:

      similar experience. conversations with friends in law enforcement: all arrests are for trespass. not masks. peggy hall makes some good logic on how to address stores. has to be a way for to compel them to provide service for those who cannot wear a mask.

      All you have to do to shut them up is to say you have a medical condition. It’s against the law for anyone to question that too! You’re welcome!

  15. Jack says:

    The biggest reason this mask-a-raid goes on is due to the employers…PERIOD. Most everybody works for an organization that is FORCING…EXTORTING their workers to go along with the “rules”: mask, etc.

    Nobody has called out these employers that I’m aware of. Many I work with are afraid to say anything for being FIRED. In March, April, many were FIRED for NOT WEARING A MASK.

    THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT ARE THE PROBLEM–THE EMPLOYERS.

    The police are employed, so are all the govt workers. As for the Police, they have chiefs who are illegally going along with phony governor orders that are clearly destroying the people said Police Chief is sworn to “protect”. THESE CHIEFS ARE ALSO THE PROBLEM.

    WHO ENFORCES the police to allow Antifa to even GATHER? The CHIEFS.

    Screw the “governor ordered me to do it”. That’s the Nuremberg trials.

    Funny how QUIET the Jews are about all this. Are they that naïve that they refuse to acknowledge their revered badge of tears, the “holocost” should NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN????

    How about the Big Churches with congregations in the thousands, larger? Where’s the Church of Scientology?

    Where’s the FBI? (infiltrated). THEY ALL ARE.

    So we’ll see where this goes. and YES, all you young military people who could fight…reach down and find your balls…

    • Saul Over says:

      The Rat-on-the-maskless-hotline was a’buzzin since the dicktater made some renewed proclamations.
      The State is losing tax money. So, they fine employers for employee and/or customer masklessness, and the money begins renewing itself, only if people pay.

      I certainly hope people won’t pay!!

    • Arthur Danu says:

      A large Jewish Congregation in New York City just held a wedding ceremony in their synagogue where over 7,000 people attended.

      ALL OF THEM WERE NOT WEARING MASKS! BRAVO!

      When the newspapers found out, they reported the story as a dangerous “superspreader event”, instead of the stand for FREEDOM that it really was.

      The Church was fined $15,000. I hope they don’t pay it, but if they do, a small $2 donation from everyone in attendance would almost pay for the fine very easily.

      There are lots of good Jews in the world. The real question that needs to be asked is….

      WHERE ARE ALL THE GOOD CHRISTIANS….if this is indeed, supposedly, a “Christian Nation”?

    The United States is at a critical juncture.

Americans have the choice to either step up and fight for their rights amid mass deception and escalating tyranny, or sit back and do nothing – which most appear to be doing – while the globalist overlords have their way in bringing to fruition the final solution.

    If this sounds like alarmist fearmongering, then you are woefully ignorant of history, to be quite frank. The path that America is now on has been traveled before, and suffice it to say that this path has never once led to anything good. Listen for yourself as a Serbian patriot who lived through this very thing 20 years ago offers a history lesson about what happened in his native homeland:

    It was the year 2000, as a little background, when Serbia faced a similar crossroads as the one America now does in 2020. The Serbian people held an election that saw “significant irregularities,” much like our own, resulting in mass protests. Just two days later, Slobodan Miloševi?, who had been reigning in the country as a socialist since the 1980s, resigned after brave Serbian patriots took a bulldozer to the Radio Television of Serbia building, considered to be a symbol of Miloševi?’s propaganda regime.

    This victory against Miloševi?’s evil regime continues to be celebrated annually in Serbia as the 5 October Overthrow, and it is powerfully relevant to Americans today. Will we sit idly by while the mainstream media installs a socialist Biden-Harris regime, or will we take a stand against the corruption that brought us here?

    As the above video warns, socialism once installed “will never leave.” It never fully left Serbia, despite the populist uprising that ousted Miloševi?, and is still present all across Eastern Europe in many other nations where it was ushered in by force.

    “The world that you know will stop existing,” the Serbian patriot warns. “You will never reclaim it again. Never. The Russians couldn’t. The Ukrainians couldn’t. Baltic guys couldn’t. Czechs, Slavs, Poles, Serbs … not a single one was able to overthrow them.”

    Will you be a coward, or will you be a patriot?
    The way most Americans already seem to be accepting the government’s lockdowns and mask mandates suggests that our nation is long past gone when it comes to preserving our liberties. Watching supposedly free Americans roll over and accept not just the takedown of our nation’s economy, but also now a clearly fraudulent election, is nothing short of sobering.

    “Look what they have done during the lockouts,” the Serbian patriot adds. “They had no authority over you and you just obeyed. They destroyed your businesses and you obeyed. They took your streets and looted everything and you obeyed. They come to your neighborhoods; you’ve done nothing. They come to your house; you have done nothing. What the hell is wrong with you?”

    “And what are you going to do now? Are you going to take that … bulldozer and bulldoze everything, or will you just stay obedient sheep until you get slaughtered?”

    If Americans fail to rise up now while we still can, the endgame for our country will be the same as it always was throughout history in every other place where similar circumstances prevailed: misery, tyranny and ultimately, widespread death and destruction.

    “My people were slaughtered in Nazi Croatia,” the Serbian warns. “They were walking towards the pitholes and they were [buried] alive, together with their women and children. That’s what Marxism is doing, you sheep. Learn from history, what the hell?”

    We cannot stress enough the importance of taking the urgent warnings in the above video seriously. We will also keep you up to date on the latest election developments at Trump.news.

    History’s tipping points: When is violence the RIGHT answer to tyranny and oppression?
    Monday, November 23, 2020 by: Mike Adams

    (Natural News) You can’t study history without wondering, in each chapter of government genocide against innocent people, where was the line where violence on the part of the innocent people was the right answer to government tyranny? Where could such violence carried out in self-defense, in other words, actually have saved lives and ended democide?

    When Germans were exterminating the Jews, where was that tipping point beyond which Jews were justified in killing German soldiers?

    When Mao launched his Cultural Revolution, at what point were its victims justified in killing the murderous communist foot soldiers who were exterminating their political opposition, block by block, city by city?

    Along the same lines of ethical warfare, wasn’t it reasonable for French Revolution soldiers in World War II to kill German soldiers who were occupying their country? Wasn’t it simultaneously ethical for French Revolution members to bomb train tracks, use high explosives against German installations, and poison every German soldier they could reach?

    These are questions of “wartime ethics,” or the morality of using violence to defend the innocent against oppression.

    When innocent people are oppressed, violence eventually becomes the right answer to ending the tyranny that oppresses them.

    Interestingly, which group in America represents the “oppressed” right now? Which group has been denied the right to speak, the right to seek legal counsel, the right to have their vote fairly counted, the right to pursue their profession in the workplace and the right to exist? That group is, of course, Trump supports (and conservatives / Christians in general). They are the oppressed, and they are being systematically beaten down, defamed, violently attacked, marginalized, slandered and removed from society.

    Today I ask the question: At what point do the systematically oppressed have the right to pursue violence against tyranny? I fear we are approaching that tipping point right this very minute, even as Democrats are now moving to disbar 22 of Trump’s attorneys, arguing that Trump has no right to legal representation in the courts in order to make his case of nationwide, coordinated vote fraud.

    When you are denied the right to speak (Big Tech censorship), the right to vote (Dominion voting systems theft and fraud), the right to work (workplace discrimination against conservatives), the right to engage in business (big banks banning conservatives like Laura Loomer), the right to legal counsel, the right to exist (AOC’s new “purge” list of conservatives) and the right to even speak publicly on a university campus because of their outright discrimination against conservatives, what option is remaining to the oppressed?

    There appears to be only one remaining option, and that option is now very, very close to being triggered nationwide. Meanwhile, those carrying out the oppression claim that their violence is “mostly peaceful,” while demanding that their political opponents never have the right to resort to violence and must accept their enslavement and punishment without resisting.

    In this podcast, I explain why, at certain points in human history, violence carried out in the context of self-defense is actually the right answer to tyranny. This is not a call for violence, but rather an exploration of those tipping points in human history where violence in the context of self-defense because not merely the right answer, but the only answer to survive.

    For those people who are participating or considering participation in a local militia.
    It is vital for all the people in the militias across this country to declare and record their political status on the land and soil as per the information found on https://theamericanstatesassembly.net/ and join the state assembly militias and become the well regulated state militia. For example: Arizona Assembly Militia, California Assembly Militia, Nevada Assembly Militia etc.
    Otherwise, you good people can be deemed armed insurrectionists by the British Territorial US Government and their agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Central Intelligence Agency, Bureau Of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms etc and their Municipal alphabet soup counterparts and end up like Lavoy Finnicum, the folks at Ruby Ridge, The Colorado Nine, Ted Turner RuSA and the Branch Dividians.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      Would work, in a truly proper system of representation, but what we have now – doesn’t even adhere to its own laws!

      I have long since given up on any “court” or other “official filings”, because the system is so top-heavy with self-interested criminals of every stripe, that such deeds and methods would simply be ignored and the prospective hunted down.

      Any time one goes to the “system’s” institutions to expect a redress, the “system’s” actors will deny it, and thus see you as accepting the “system’s” authority nonetheless.

      We have had “citizen’s militias” across this nation for many years now, and what has happened differently? – Nothing worth noting, let alone any form of improvement on Our lot. – I have still yet to see any form of a “citizen’s militia” that actually accomplishes something substantive! – Remember the big protest in Virginia over Ralph Northam’s push for more gun-control? Remember the thirty citizens who were ordered out of the chamber when their “officials” were voting on a gun-control measure, by a state police officer? – The People complied without any real resistance, just angry words!

      Until I personally see something different, from what I have seen already – for these many years – I am not so hopeful that there will be any real motion to change things, any time soon.

      The “paid protestors” were more functional, than the true grassroots citizen activism! – What’s more, most were very tame, all on account of worrying about what the “media” would say of them.

    Jon is correct that now is already past the time in not only this existential war for human freedom and dignity but also for the very existence of humanity as a natural life form and not a DNA altered and patented form wherein that patent can then be controlled as to use. I expect to be arrested and punished sometime and perhaps eliminated metaphorically or for real in the near future but I know I will not be alone and this alone gives me comfort to rail against the tyranny being imposed by the metaphysical and soulless mistakes that seek to act as ultimate arbiters of all living of life across all taxonomy (now the new Phylocode of mixed DNA) on this planet.

    Is there some sort of democrat political “body movement coach” who suggests how certain high level Dems are supposed to move their upper limbs. Would someone please place a beach ball b/w Biden’s “pleading hands,” so his hands could be considered semi-useful.

    Could someone explain to Mr. Biden that a psalmist is a writer of sacred hymns or prayers & not a palm reader.

    • JA says:

      Hi Paul:

      To answer your question of what Cuomo’s purpose and identity is you need only go to the New Testament to find the answer.

      He is part of the “Synagogue of Satan” and is one of the “tares” spoken of there. He is riding high at the present time; but will be brought down to his knees, along with the rest of Satans’ children. It is promised. Wont that be fun to watch!!!!

    Wonderful, Jon. True words, all of it. Anyone who yearns for a ‘freer’ period in recent history like, say, the 1960’s, need only reflect upon the words of Montaigne – ‘We didn’t have far to fall’ (despite appearances to the contrary).

  35. Jim S Smith says:

    Civil Disobedience has always been, and always will be, one of the most prominent and efficient ways to battling tyranny.

    Just say “NO!” to tyrants. The battle starts there.

    It was NEVER “government’s” nor anyone else’s charge to protect you from YOU.

    When all that governments have left as the tools of control is force, then by force shall it also be repelled. The Laws of Nature make it quite clear: “Survival and self-preservation start with the individual.

    “Societies”, communities, and Nations of every sort, only exist because of the individual People. To the bellicose echo-parrot fans of “communism”, “socialism”, and all those other “isms”, To all those who proclaim, “The individual is nothing. Society is everything“, I say to you:

    Since WHEN has mankind truly benefited from, become prosperous because of, and truly reached to heights that only their gods have envisioned – by the hands of ‘society’, and not first from the individual? Since WHEN has any ‘society’ or other collective ever innovated anything that the whole of humanity has handsomely benefited? Since WHEN has such a collective NOT taken upon itself, through time and attrition, the powers not deserving of it – to increase its own ends – at the expense of the People?

    The great innovators and inventors were always societal outcasts, differing in their own views of ‘society’, while at the same time – looking to improve by contributing their own ideas – to the enrichment of all. They did this out of their own willingness, their own volition, NOT by force or decree, and not by edicts issued from the pulpit – but by a genuine act of charity, and a desire to see things improved, and happiness become realized.

    “Governments” of any color, any stripe, become more and more like parasites, leeches, and predators – which feed upon the souls of the great and the lowly (supposedly, in support of the “lowly”) – while extracting the life forces from those it governs (controls).

    The greatest destroyer of humanity, has consistently been “governments”! All wars thusly, have been one of the many devices towards that aim by “governments”, be they “secular” or “religious” in their natures. The soonest We, as a People, can come to terms with the stark truth before us, will the the soonest We, as a People, can become our own leaders again, and ensure our survival and flourishing to the amazement of whichever of our gods we proclaim to be under the grace of.

    The Laws of Nature are immutable, but humanity’s understanding of them still so limited. Therefore, humanity still has much more to go, in order to again achieve to its fullest potentials, those which “governments” will never achieve.

    Despise Ye the Light, and Ye shall forever curse at the Darkness, for Truth is an ever-shining Light, to dispel the Ignorance of Darkness.

    • Epicurious says:

      JSS the problem we have is that so many are happy to be enslaved and having Big Government make all their decisions for them. Such sheeple will fold when the action starts. Maybe we all need to read some history on revolutions, particularly the French Revolution to see what event crystalised their resistance.

      A quote from History.com:
      Though enthusiastic about the recent breakdown of royal power, Parisians grew panicked as rumors of an impending military coup began to circulate. A popular insurgency culminated on July 14 when rioters stormed the Bastille fortress in an attempt to secure gunpowder and weapons; many consider this event, now commemorated in France as a national holiday, as the start of the French Revolution.

        The “blissful ignorance” of pretended innocence.

    • Kia Kaha says:

      Jim, a most honest assessment! The truth is simple and clear if we let it be. We discover the difference between trying to justify a defense and the real confidence builder in simply stating the obvious truth. Truth flies under its own power.

      It takes a genuine desire and willingness to see clearly. It’s not one day they are warmongering criminals, funding the bombing, ordering murders of innocent people to steal their resources, committing the most egregious, unimaginable, horrifying, traumatizing crimes against humanity and Earth, flooding our minds and bodies with propaganda and toxic poisons, and the next day a caped crusading superman with big a “S” on his chest and a team of fraud-ridden heroes to be praised, applauded, adored and worshiped. These are not the qualifications of inspirational leaders. They corral people’s minds into a very limited 2 options scenario, this or that, so people don’t venture further outside the corral ….which is where the freedom of choice really is.

      We are continually presented with tests to see how many people will surrender their natural human rights, their own intelligence and ability to think, to surrender their humanity and replace it with a job description, to not acknowledge the workings and power of natural law, natural justice, our own rational intuitive soul GPS, and our natural human rights, honest and true innate value…

      …to jump into an imaginary labeled boxes.

    Rick says- To that end, I’ve been thinking about toast lately. Burnt toast specifically. I’ve been applying a blowtorch to toast over the past few years on my back patio, off and on when I have time, and have discovered for myself that its a pretty good insulator against temperature of 1600 degrees!!! Yes. Toast. Hard to believe yet I do it myself. So I’ve been thinking of making lots of slices of toast to put on my roof to protect against the Arizona summer sun. The problem I can’t solve yet is how to attach the toast to the shingles. As well, the toast is not impervious to rain– and we get lots of rain here occasionally. If I can solve the toast-attachment and toast-wetness problems, I might have a new shingle. I did find others working in high-temp-toast-instulation online under keyword ‘starlight’… the nickname for insulating toast. If I burn my toast in the morning, I always scrape it off because imagine what it can do to your insides.

    I have not seen any government programs that deal with burnt toast as heat shielding– even with all this talk of energy conservation and green energy. Just a funny aside that is actually true and to Jim’s point: “My fellow Americans. As your president, I advise you to put burnt toast on your roof. Thank you and God Bless…. America”.

        He reminded me of my ex-wife who, when I would come up with a new back-yard or back-of-the-envelope “crazy idea”– would say “You can’t do that… its never been done before”… as if things that have never been done before can, in principle, never be done. It took me a long time to figure out that many people have not trained their own minds to think outside-the-box… which even in high school, we were simply calling “brainstorming” — a process, the teacher said of coming up with any idea, no matter how crazy sounding– without being critisized.

        COVID-MASK-CRAZY-PEOPLE and OUT-OF-THE-BOX-SOLUTIONS
        What brainstorming can be called into play to neutralize this crazy virus-meme-covid-mask-crazy-society? A counter-meme to spread might be “Masks are Poisoning You!”– which is true– considering chemicals in the materials. Or call masks “CO2 Rebreathers”. Laughing at and pointing at people with particularly fashionable masks might be interesting. Wear an electronic dog-whistle and tell people the resonant frequency breaks up the virus (and keeps dogs away). Make a tin-foil-hat but stick burnt toast on it, all around, with peanut butter and tell your kids and wife that it stops 5G. Start yelling out “Freedom!” whenever you can, in parking lots, or around the house– wherever it occurs to you– like a Tourette’s Syndrome victim– it might wake up a few people here and there. As Solzenitzyen said in Gulag Archipelago– if the 50 million killed by the Bolsheviks had fought back with ANYTHING– they could have defeated them… anything at all. Let’s start “weaponizing-anything-in-our-imagination” to fight back and resist. Even laughter can be a weapon if used correctly– and you can run fast if you have to.

        Au contaire. What I’m referring to is real and my point is that sometimes “asymetric” ideas can fix world problems rather than trying to solve said problems directly. If you don’t think my burnt toast insulator is real, what would you think of no-fuel-jet-turbine-airplanes? Or free atmospheric energy from antennas on buildings that were here before Europeans got to North America? I think you’re going to pleasantly surprised, Jim.

          • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

            I have a slice of burnt toast sitting glued to a shingle in the back yard and will observe it over coming days. The burnt toast is actually carbon which resists high temperatures and the peanut butter is Old Fashioned Laura Scudder smooth- the kind that you have to mix the peanut oil in yourself.

            Another idea I have is to wear brass knuckles everywhere I go. I’m not sure if they’re legal in AZ, but I’ll check. As a last resort, I might be able to slow a retarded mask-enforcer, low on frontal lobe oxygen or an obedient vaccinator with a few good blows. I like to do sun-gazing at sunset too because I think little men who live in the sun communicate with me. When I do this, my sense of premonition seems to increase. Dick Van Dyke, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang demonstrated a car that levitates. That’s the principle of jet turbine engines too if you watch carefully. The machines of the world and the textbook explanations of physics and biology are all wrong. The current attack on our normal situation CAN result in a complete UPGRADE of civilization if we can use our brain/mind as the transceivers that they really are. I’ve only had one beer and after writing that, I feel like I’m tripping.

            Burnt toast. Carbon. Peanut butter as glue. We can conquer government shutdowns asymptotically, not symetrically. They WANT you to respond symetrically. Don’t do it. Be weird. Unpredictable. Unaccountable. Invisible. Underground. Change your name for the hell of it. Stash cash. Laugh out loud in public at nothing.

    Also, Happy Thanksgiving, to all the American patriots (even those who are on the ocean, or in foreign lands, whether by their choice, or that of another) and let’s all have a nice, LARGE family gathering.

    Do I mean “the family of patriots,” or our immediate relatives? I mean both, of course.

    If you’re fortunate enough to have family, and friends, too (that has/have a clue), ask them to make sure they tell the (mentally challenged, that is) governor(s) of their state(s) to take a flying leap into an unchlorinated swimming pool full of HUNGRY piranha.

    Are you listening, Witmer, Cuomo, Insley, Newsom, et al?

    Just this week I saw someone who recently had a brain aneurysm (September)and almost died. She was sent by helicopter to the hospital and stayed there for weeks. Her head was completely shaved and her hair is finally starting to grow back. She is now back working at the store wearing her mask. I asked her if she thought the mask she was forced to wear in the first place at the store had played a part in her terrible event. She said definitely… she is a smoker, has anxiety, was stressed out and the mask probably didn’t help! She was glad when she was in the hospital because they didn’t make her wear it while she recuperated… now she is back at work trying the make a living and forced to wear the mask again.!! This happened in San Diego County and I just can’t believe and wonder how many other people are going to get sick from these masks and die. By the way, she is only 39… This is what Jon is talking about. We need to end the masks… no one should be wearing them.
    I personally know Peggy Hall (she is a close friend of my brother) and she is legit. Amazing person and what she is doing in Orange County is amazing. I checked out her website like Donna mentioned above and she is a fighter and loves this country and the people in it…

    I clicked the link and went to the channel and saw that, yes, indeed her channel was still there and is ACTIVE. Well now, that’s suspicious. If I hadn’t gone the extra step to search for her channel, I would have assumed it was gone…terminated, finished. So, hmmm…

    Since I was there, I went through her videos to see if this specific video was there. It was! Double Hmmm. Hmmm…

    People will be told by Youtube that her channel has been terminated. But she will not know this unless her audience tells her, because as far as she can tell by looking at her channel, the video is still there and the view count is still intact.

    Youtube is now keeping some accounts, but telling people it has been terminated, keeping videos, but changing the links to Shadow-ban specific videos.

        I did leave her a comment to let her know. I told a friend, and you know how this goes… who made it into a video to tell 50+ more friends.

My comments would drop to the bottom of a long list or not appear at all. I still continued to post to my channel for awhile, could tell other channels were watching by the things they posted or said in videos. It became a great telepathic experiment of sorts.

    REPLY TO: Native (post above)

    Your real life story is most interesting.

    Three times, I merely forgot (I didn’t do it to make an important point) to wear my mask when entering a grocery store.

    I honestly didn’t realize it until I was greeted with the most awful angry stares. It was all three times by elderly women. They all looked somewhat feeble, perhaps of ill health.

    Their rather energetic stares most quickly prompted me to go to my car & ceremonially place my mask upon my now shamed face.

    The first two times, I just thought “What the hell, no big deal,” & did it.

    The third time I clearly remember the woman’s eyes. I was entering with empty carriage, she, exiting with full.

    Her eyes, besides a strong coat of red anger, coupled with some sort of vague righteousness, actually possessed this…

    She was genuinely terrified. Perhaps she was just diagnosed with some dangerous disease. I don’t know.

    But I felt it was not the place or time to explain to her anything. She clearly was not in a mental or emotional mode to comprehend.

    It should be noted, IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM, am I condemning anyone for taking a stand. Clearly, this endless mask wearing is ridiculous.

    What I am saying is I feel trapped by other’s fear.

    As for you, my experimenting & courageous friend, kudos!

    I can absolutely see in my mind’s eye, the clerk chasing you about.

    And on the lighter side of things, you may have survived the grocery store, but your wife probably killed you for not bringing home the cranberry sauce.

  46. TruthSupporter says:

    I am going to be honest and make myself vulnerable here. Up until today, I have been “strong” and resisted the “mask thing”, including walking immediately out when a mask patrol was stationed at the door telling everyone to apply one, or to pull it up over their nose.

    Today, I had a couple of quick errands, one included going into a WalMart. I was immediately confronted by a mask patrol who told me to pull my neck scarf over my nose, and I “obeyed”. Then, it fell down, an employee told me to pull it up in a rather disrespectful tone of voice, and I did it, again. The same thing happened at a grocery store I entered, later.

    I am 100% knowledgeable and confident that this whole thing is a hoax, from the beginning, and am now very angry at myself for being so weak and obeying orders that are non-justifiable and ridiculous.

    This situation is only going to become increasingly more tyrannical with time, and if we don’t handle it well now, we definitely will not be able to deal with it when it escalates.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for how to overcome and handle these “weak” moments?

    • You do not seem weak at all.
      You engaged in genuine human connection. It is up to you if you wish to brave having an argument or debate in public with these types of people. Or shop around/examine different times of day to corrupt the guidelines. Neo in the matrix didn’t go out of his way without having some semblance of a pre-formed idea/plan

    • Kia Kaha says:

      I’ve never worn a mask and no one has bothered me. I was offered a mask at the door of store once. He sheepishly said he had to ask. It was his “job”. I understand that and that job descriptions are not the truest expression of us. But I also know a store cannot make laws. With others coming in the store and around I simply told him the truth, “I need oxygen to be healthy.”

      The truth is really simple, if we let it be. If we don’t get all up in our head about it, having anticipatory, imaginary verbal arguments as if we are preparing for a fight, we can make the simplest yet most impactful response. The least words used stick with people. They can easily remember them, recall and repeat them when they also need to use them. The truth makes sense, rings bells. This is the way truth works, rumbling around now inside their head. We might be the first to tell them, but we might not be the last. The questioning mind sends them on a quest which will attract others to them. That’s the natural law of magnetism. I’ve not seen that guy at the door since. Maybe he quit his “job” and the truth won much more than merely gaining me access into the store.

        Rick says– that’s a great point I’m going to try that one tomorrow. I’ll ask the mask pusher “is this the law?”… and he’ll say it’s store policy– and I’ll say but is it the LAW… and he’ll say I don’t know or no… and I’ll say if it’s not the law, then please leave me alone. I’ll think on that one tonight.

      • BS Detector says:

        In most places I simply walk in and do my business without incidence. At a Whole Foods I did my shopping, standing tall and unmasked, and the only thing unusual for me was a lot of positive attention from women, asking me about some of the foods I was looking at or had in my cart, and such.

        If I’m really pressed – which is unusual – just just say “sorry, forgot”, having it on my arm. or use it as an opportunity to educate people about the absurdity of it by handing out a tidbit of very low-hanging fruit, and perhaps reminding them I’m not spitting on anyone.

        And some places just use so many toxic cleaners or carry such toxic products that I WANT to wear a mask anyway!

      Up in Alberta, Canada, the city I live in is teetering on mandatory face diapering.

    I was physically pushed off my apt. elevator in Toronto because the male said his wife was pregnant and he “wouldn’t take the risk”.
    I’ve not worn a mask since day one of the by-law in Toronto that states,
    “Exceptions include people who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, or children under two years old, or those who require accommodation with the Ontario Human Rights Code.
    Proof of a medical condition is not required.”
    Now the so called “pregnant” woman accompanying the male was wearing a mask also thus making her fetus work hard for oxygen.
    I had my “I am unable to wear a mask” sign I wear in all indoor places, including the apt building I live in.
    I can say, “I have one lung” or I can say nothing.

    Constitutional Democracy with individual rights and independence have been replaced by Communitarianism where the Common Good usurps individual rights and we are interdependent and not independent. They tried to implement this with a Constitutional Convention in 1975 after the Nixon coup but failed, but they implemented it with Continuity of Government and FEMA (now DHS), and the Patriots Act sealed our fate. Elections are now controlled by Silicon Valleys Voting Machines since 2000, so not only is the Constitution scrapped but Democracy is nothing but an illusion. Next phase is turning people into cattle and trading them on commodities markets as Social Impact Bonds where everyones actions are digitalized and data analyzed to

    I assume when most of us think of the word “war” we usually think of a state of declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations, fought with loud weapons.. but the desired benefits of a war can be achieved without using loud weaponry, if one side can trick their enemies and control their behavior, just by using mind tricks, fear tactics and psychological pressure, to make them surrender, before they even realize they’re in a war. That’s their tactic during their “Covid Operation”.

    Instilled mindset of a “normal person” is that their government is working hard to find a cure to protect them from a new virus that’s killing the masses, when in reality, it’s their “friendly” enemies who are taking away everyone else’s freedom using a fake story of the “new virus” just to gain more control of every part of our lives. That literally is a war against humanity. It’s a silent war against us. They already openly admitted that they want to reduce the world population (using vaccines, etc.) but people are blinded by their trust for authority figures that they look up to.

    Even my “conservative” state has now knuckled under pressure: Apparently, our “dear ‘ol governor” has made a “Stage II” pronouncement that in ALL shared/common areas, all who are present in them must wear a mask! – Several employers are even threatening their employees with losing their “certificates” (necessary for those specific jobs) for failing to wear their mandated face mask on the job if caught.

    I guess the next step then, is to start fining/punishing businesses who do not force all of their customers/clients to similarly “mask-up” while shopping? ? ? – Gee! AND I thought I was living in a staunchly conservative state.

    Go figure!

  54. Jomsvikings says:

    Americans simply don’t care about being locked down or the drocacian business restrictions or being forced to wear a mask, etc. There are no protests over these issues nor lawsuits being filed from every small business that’s being destroyed. You’ll see now & then a few people protesting in front of state capital buildings with their “we’re against mask mandates” signs but the politicians don’t take them seriously. Lol.

    We’re a nation of apathy – call us the Obedient States of America. Lol. In fact, many people love the lockdowns and want more! I met a fellow out on the running trails last spring who said he was empathetic with the lockdowns. You see, this gentleman proceeded to tell me that he had to commute 45 mins one way to work – an hour and a half a day driving per day to & from work and stuck in bad traffic many times. Well…along comes the shutdown and he gets to work from home. He said his life has changed dramatically – no long commute to & from work. He says he gets more sleep and gets to sleep in and has more time for excercise (he’s a runner). He said he doesn’t know if the pandemic is real or not but doesn’t care one way or the other, instead hoping for more lockdowns & restrictions so he can continue to work for home.

    There are probably millions more people out there like this fellow who for the first time in their careers get to work from the comfront of their home.

    There’s also the free stuff the government uses as bait to control people from protesting and being too angry. Look at new stimulus package that Congress hopes to pass this December that again has all kinds of free stuff; bailouts, paycheck protection and even another twelve-hundred bucks for most everyone!

    And most people will cave in to the pressure from the tyrannical governments and take the vaccine & receive their immunity certificate administered after two doses are given.
    When faced with not being able to Fly, use public transportation, no attending sporting events or concerts, not able patronage business (i.e. “no shirt, no shoes, no immunity passport- no service.”).

    This is the future of America: “Conform or be cast out” (from the famous “Rush” song). We’re a doomed nation – a nation of obedient clones. A nation of no more freedom or Liberty!

    ” In the modern secular church of fakers, they tell us anger is wrong, outrage is wrong, acceptance in hypnotic sleep is what we must aim for. ”
    The missing thing really, allowing ourselves to be talked out of wholeness, when strong energy is natural. We’ve been trained away from it, not taught that anger is good, and to then think, convert anger to calm determined use with what matters. Instead taught to ignore, divert to weak or useless distraction. Then others direct the future, instead of us. Also reminds me of quote Jon used five or ten articles ago from Gary Spence on arguing. Good truth, similar premise.

    Real life is light and dark. There is much false light put around us, and fear, taking away focus from what we could make real. And real light won’t be a choice if more people don’t become serious. Total avoidance of seriousness isn’t light it’s dark. The light and dark go together, then effort means something as life is earned. Gratitude is strength by doing. Appreciate the article Jon.

    “We are like roses that have never bothered to bloom when we should have bloomed and it is as if the sun has become disgusted with waiting”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “what matters most is how well you walk through the fire”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “You have to die a few times before you can really
    live.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, The People Look Like Flowers

    ― Charles Bukowski

    “I wanted the whole world or nothing.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, Post Office

    “there is a loneliness in this world so great
    that you can see it in the slow movement of
    the hands of a clock.

    people so tired
    mutilated
    either by love or no love.

    people just are not good to each other
    one on one.

    the rich are not good to the rich
    the poor are not good to the poor.

    we are afraid.

    our educational system tells us
    that we can all be
    big-ass winners.

    it hasn’t told us
    about the gutters
    or the suicides.

    or the terror of one person
    aching in one place
    alone

    untouched
    unspoken to

    watering a plant.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, Love Is a Dog from Hell

    “Find what you love and let it kill you.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “there are worse things
    than being alone
    but it often takes
    decades to realize this
    and most often when you do
    it’s too late
    and there’s nothing worse
    than too late”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “Life’s as kind as you let it be.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, Hot Water Music

    “my beerdrunk soul is sadder than all the dead christmas trees of the world.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “I went to the worst of bars hoping to get killed but all I could do was to get drunk again.”

    “I was drawn to all the wrong things: I liked to drink, I was lazy, I didn’t have a god, politics, ideas, ideals. I was settled into nothingness; a kind of non-being, and I accepted it. I didn’t make for an interesting person. I didn’t want to be interesting, it was too hard. What I really wanted was only a soft, hazy space to live in, and to be left alone.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “There’s nothing to mourn about death any more than there is to mourn about the growing of a flower. What is terrible is not death but the lives people live or don’t live up until their death. They don’t honor their own lives, they piss on their lives. They shit them away. Dumb fuckers. They concentrate too much on fucking, movies, money, family, fucking. Their minds are full of cotton. They swallow God without thinking, they swallow country without thinking. Soon they forget how to think, they let others think for them. Their brains are stuffed with cotton. They look ugly, they talk ugly, they walk ugly. Play them the great music of the centuries and they can’t hear it. Most people’s deaths are a sham. There’s nothing left to die.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “Baby,” I said, “I’m a genius but nobody knows it but me.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, Factotum

    “Nothing was ever in tune. People just blindly grabbed at whatever there was: communism, health foods, zen, surfing, ballet, hypnotism, group encounters, orgies, biking, herbs, Catholicism, weight-lifting, travel, withdrawal, vegetarianism, India, painting, writing, sculpting, composing, conducting, backpacking, yoga, copulating, gambling, drinking, hanging around, frozen yogurt, Beethoven, Back, Buddha, Christ, TM, H, carrot juice, suicide, handmade suits, jet travel, New York City, and then it all evaporated and fell apart. People had to find things to do while waiting to die. I guess it was nice to have a choice.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, Women

    “Drinking is an emotional thing. It joggles you out of the standardism of everyday life, out of everything being the same. It yanks you out of your body and your mind and throws you against the wall. I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you’re allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It’s like killing yourself, and then you’re reborn. I guess I’ve lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    “I remember awakening one morning and finding everything smeared with the color of forgotten love.”
    ― Charles Bukowski, What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire

    I named my first dog Bukowski.

    I dislike poets. I do like maya angelou and bukowski. Not sure about the spelling of her name but I bet the two of them would have liked each other. I doubt either desired labels like poet.

    Maybe someone knows someone that has committed murder (legal or illegally) and maybe explain that the rothchilds and the 1%`are probably above the laws governing the rest of us. Point out the facts are that they are the problem. If the 50 richest people in this country had 80% of their money siezed each of the 50 would still have a billion dollars to spend. The rothchilds are so wealthy no one knows what they have. They do have a section of england and huge houses- each house grows its own food. The rockefellers and the rothchilds are certaionly behind this joke of one world government and the united nations. They see the local government power as a hindrance to the slave and owner society they desire now. What small business is able to remain in operation with amazon and the closed for covid model in place.
    Phoenix is in maricopa county and they estimate 3.1 million changed hands daily in the restaurants prior to covid.blather
    The real war is the war that is going on between corporations and human beings. They are the real enemy because with personhood status they get the rights that were intended only for the citizens.
    They can live forever and do not need clean air or water and can disolve and reappear as a new “person” . They can buy and sell other “persons” and worst of all they are involved in politics.
    Before personhood there were no lobbyists anbd politics was a human being thing without black budgets.
    My fix is outlaw private schools, admission to the 1% is instant military service and after serving in the military they do the work of the social workers. They are the most deserving of the strains they have inflicted on society by destroying the unions and setting so many obstacles upon their fellow men. I would not be surprised if I am the only union member here or if none of you realize how much the unions have done for the workers including the non union workers. Who else fought the big battles for a better workplace against the governments and owners. Join a weak union or form one. blah blah

    Kill the rockefellers and rothchilds of the world before they kill you. Gates and fauci too.
    Just kidding

    I am the most flawed human so dont listen to me
    As the most flawed I had to become the most forgiving and that is still hard to be .
    I have noticed a ton of comments without any proof such as biden stole the election. I fear biden more than trump but I hate trump equally. I never liked him even before he was a tv star. Common sense tells me anyone that owns two casinos and bankrupts them is not presidential material or anyone I am going to praise or expect much from them in the way of saving the nation.
    I also think that digital voting is corrupt and a perfect reason not to go to a cashless society.You get a big problem proving wrongs or screwed out of wages based upon the owners views of your compliance. blah blah blah
    Try arguing anything in a federal courtroom with all the government against you. Example or proof:
    No one needs a drivers license unless they are commercial (making money using the roads) and this has been to the supreme court with many rulings agreeing with me. I can give many examples of this with court rulings and cases. The supreme court has said no laws can limit your ability to travel. No laws can be put in place that limit your travel like insurance or registration yet think the cost to exercise your right to travel and the police state that exists to enforce the revenue they take without any laws saying they can. sheep baaahs from all equals nodding of heads.
    most of the history of america had huge taxes paid by the richest to make some ammends for the resources they took from the poorest. Now we are fucked from cradle to grave and they laugh at us for expecting some ammends.Throw away your cell phones I think I pay 13 dollars a month for my landline. I hate talking on phones and never had a cell phone -the last thing I want is to be reachable. My wife would be the only one calling me asking what I am doing. Do any of you like cell phones? A 2″ screen used to avoid converstions with strangers. What is wrong with that -plenty. How many converstions have any of you had in person with someone of different thoughts this week? No tollerance or thinking needed. Real conversations in real life with strangers really are good for a country and a person. Tollerance and freedom are connected. Anyone talk to a person that is different from your views without judging them as the enemy or calling them names?
    Friendship is difficult so is freedom but both are desirable.
    Thanks for the word or expression: hyucking it up.
    Just realized it probably stood for another word and if so it should be a new word.

    For many years I thought the navajo word yatahey*
    meant good morning or fuck you.
    It made me love the navajo because any language with a word that meant two different opposites was my type of language. Years later I was told it only means good morning and talk about disappointment. My navajo friend had explained to me that no navajo would ever say good morning and said that was the reason it had two meanings and I bought his story. It is my favorite word and I will never accept its actual meaning.
    Heres to hyucking up everything possible

      Dear billy,

      I have a little Celtic blood within me.

      I hope you enjoy this sweet tune.

      Faire-thee-well!

      This phrase means very well done, excellent, & you could not have done better.

      Enjoy…with JOY!

    Billy,

    I “hear” in you, Native American blood.

    If I am incorrect, please forgive my mis-read.

    If correct, then let me sing to your Ancestors, from my Ancestors, & humbly say to you & them…

    “Thank you, for sharing with us, your Beautiful Land.”

    And so also, and especially, during this Thankful Season, I say…

    Peace & Gratitude, to you & yours!

    It seems to me that this thing will not be solved with-out some element of scientific study. First and foremost who is behind it ? Is it the Deep State, the Republicans, the Democrats, the Russians, the Chinese…All of the above? Maybe a group of religious fanatics possibly living under a particular tree? I think the old saying… “Look to Whom You Can’t Criticize” and Use History to validate your findings, would be the first step. When you can speak your enemies name without fear of retribution then you have conquered the first step a couple more to go and you’ll be ready for the fight for all of Mankind’s Existence. This is absolutely what we face some may live thru it but it will not be n American Patriot, as it seems we are the first one’s out,(this could identify with Communism in most respects).
