I’ve been reading how the Canadian national and provincial governments are in preparation (and sadly cases already executing) of using the force of power to use repression against the massive anti-Mandate Freedom Convoy protests. So I am pleased to also read the protesters have been “Outsmarting Liberal Politicians.”
Below is the Speaking About News on outsmarting the Leftist powerbrokers followed by some polemics by Alex Jones against Medical Tyranny (which includes pay-the-bills ads – which you get to choose to FF through or not).
I need your generosity. PLEASE GIVE to overcome expenses:
David Krayden, OTTAWA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the City of Ottawa are constantly looking at new and adventurous ways to remove the freedom convoy from the nation’s capitol but the truckers keep outsmarting and outmaneuvering them at every turn. The Ottawa Police Service is repeatedly warning the truckers that they are going to be raided.
The truckers have not responded to these threats with any incendiary language or violence and watching the action first hand, one is impressed at how much the convoy is actually doing to improve situations in the city, offering free food and clothing to homeless people.
Nothing has been more devastating to police than the release of a YouTube video showing a Ottawa police officer swearing, arresting and throwing a 78-year-old man against his car for honking his horn. The incident has essentially frozen any further aggressive police action toward the convoy and has embarrassed the police service.
The police service has also raised the issue of the number of children involved with the convoy as some social workers have mused about seizing them. That idea has been roundly condemned as another example of how COVID-19 restrictions have flagrantly violated basic democratic norms.
The Official Opposition Conservative Party Thursday demanded that the House of Commons vote on ending the COVID-19 mandates, while more provinces are announcing that they plan to withdraw vaccine passports and masking in all indoor public places.
Trudeau has continued to insist the protesters are displaying “Nazi symbols” although this claim is being increasingly dismissed and ridiculed by media outlets. The arrival of Fox News has turned the convoy into an international story and whenever the camera is on, the crowds of protesters and supporters cheer and offer their complete disdain for those Canadian media outlets that continue to parrot Trudeau’s version of the truth.
The prime minister’s Quebec caucus is furious at how Trudeau has ignored the protesters – because so many are from vote rich and usually Liberal-friendly Quebec. One of the truly amazing phenomena of this protest is how truckers from Quebec and Alberta – two provinces that have often sparred over4 language and energy issues – have literally embraced each other in their opposition to COVID-19 mandates and the Trudeau government.
With the protest poised to begin its third week, it shows no sign of collapsing and its participants continue to say they are not leaving town until they see change. More trucks are expected to arrive on Saturday as some truckers have gone to Toronto to expand the protest in Canada’s largest city.
A party-like atmosphere continues to pervade the protest. At a detachment organized at a ballpark about a five minute drive from Parliament Hill, the organizers have set up saunas and a food tent that also offers toiletries and winter clothing to participants. These saunas, combined with bouncy tents for the kids, apparently sent Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson over the edge as he complained that it was “disturbing” that the protest was turning into a “some kind of fun carnival.”
All Trudeau can say is that “these protests have to stop” and reiterate his apparent belief that white supremacists are behind the event. The Liberals are suggesting the convoy is being funding by American interests and want to expand an investigation into funding into whether it is “ideologically motivated.”
Longtime Ottawa resident Phiilip Lafleche discussed whether people in Ottawa were being inconvenienced by the protest.
“I’ve been here for six days and I have seen so much support,” he said, noting the piles of food, clothing and provisions that have been donated by locals. “They’re so behind us.”
He said in his analysis of history, he cannot recall a time when a government “locked up the healthy … we quarantine the sick and we make sure we take preventative measures for the vulnerable but we never have locked up the healthy. And I’ve been locked up for two years.”
He said one of the effects that the convoy has on local businesses is that people are increasingly refusing to wear masks when they go into stores. Lafleche said mandates have forced business owners to be “policemen for the government.”
“The truckers were the point. They broke through the barriers, They started the conversation. Even though [Trudeau] won’t talk to us.”
Lafleche said he is fed up with the “mainstream media,” much of which he says he “used to watch.” He criticized journalists for getting the news “from their Twitter feed” instead of engaging in investigating journalism and doing their jobs.
He says he plans to stay at the protest as long as he can. “But I’m willing to be arrested – yes.”
Aaron Rodgers: “Vaccinated people and unvaccinated people are testing positive for COVID… the facts of whatever science we’re using here and it’s changing all the time doesn’t really back up having a two class system”]
NEXT – Wayne Allyn Root and Alex Jones begin a discussion on the VAERS deficiency on reporting COVID Jab injuries and deaths reporting if actual data was reported the injurie/deaths due-to-Jab are horrifically higher. BUT the primary discussion focus is on President Trump not only promoting the dangerous Jab but also science-safety propaganda on the Jab. Root shares as a possible out for (the actually elected) President Trump once the data becomes too large to keep the safety lie up. (I actually found the video interview on Banned Video but it doesn’t embed on my WordPress version of my Blog, ergo I use the Bitchute version.):
Wayne Allyn Root joins Alex Jones live via Skype to break down a study from Columbia University that claims the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is only recording 1/20th of the adverse reactions to the COVID vaccine.]

There is a wave of vaccine-induced illnesses sweeping Southern California hospitals, and a few brave nurses have come forward to talk about it.
In Ventura County, located to the north of Los Angeles, cases of “unexplained” heart problems, strokes and blood clotting are skyrocketing at area hospitals. And many local doctors are refusing to link these events to Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) injections.
A critical care nurse at a Ventura County ICU came forward to tell the Conejo Guardian that he is “tired of all the B.S. that’s going on” as the medical establishment refuses to acknowledge the elephant in the room.
“It’s crazy how nobody questions anything anymore,” this person, named Sam, is quoted as saying.
Sam says that there has been a noticeable surge in young people experiencing these types of severe health problems after they get needled with the injections from Operation Warp Speed.
“We’ve been having a lot of younger people come in,” Sam added. “We’re seeing a lot of strokes, a lot of heart attacks.”
In one case, a 38-year-old woman came to the emergency room with occlusions, or blockages of blood flow, in her brain.
“They [doctors] were searching for everything under the sun and documenting this in the chart, but nowhere do you see if she was vaccinated or not,” Sam added.
“One thing the vaccine causes is thrombosis, clotting. Here you have a 38-year-old woman who was double-vaccinated and she’s having strokes they can’t explain. None of the doctors relates it to the vaccine. It’s garbage. It’s absolute garbage.”
The vaccine-damaged are the ones flooding hospitals
In another instance, a 63-year-old woman with no previous cardiac history suffered a heart attack. Tests revealed that her coronary arteries were clean, however she had just taken a Moderna injection.
“One doctor actually questioned the vaccine, but they didn’t mention it in the chart because you can’t prove it,” Sam said.
Sam says that hospitals all around the area are seeing a significant spike in myocarditis, a well-known adverse effect caused by Chinese Flu shots.
“Everyone wants to downplay it – ‘It’s rare, it’s rare,’” Sam laments about how the medical establishment is not taking any of this seriously.
“Doctors don’t want to question it. We have these mass vaccinations happening and we’re seeing myocarditis more frequently and nobody wants to raise the red flag. When we discuss the case, they don’t even discuss it. They don’t mention it. They act like they don’t have a reason, that it’s spontaneous.”
Another ICU nurse by the name of Dana told the Conejo Guardian that her facility has “never been this busy,” and that “none of it is Covid-19.”
“We don’t normally see this amount of strokes, aneurysms and heart attacks all happening at once,” Dana says.
“Normally we’ll see six to ten aortic dissections a year. We’ve seen six in the last month. It’s crazy. Those have very high rates of mortality.”
Almost never do the doctors at Dana’s hospital ever even consider the fact that Wuhan Flu shots might be responsible for all this. Instead, they are blaming things like “the holidays” for this sudden uptick, which makes zero sense.
“I don’t understand how you can look at what’s going on and come up with just, ‘Yeah, it’s the holidays.’ There’s been a big change in everybody’s life, and it’s the vaccine.”
The vast majority of admitted patients are fully vaccinated, and yet an unprecedented number of them, Dana says, are “on pressers to keep their blood pressure up, people on ventilators, clotting issues, so we have a lot of Heparin drips to make sure they don’t stroke out.”

COVID Antiviral Pills Cause Life-Threatening Reactions With Many Common Meds
Last week, the FDA authorized two much-hyped antiviral treatments for COVID (just in time for Christmas): Merck’s Molnupiravir and Pfizer’s Paxlovid.
Almost immediately after the first data were released, critics were questioning the drugs’ safety profile. But now that the first courses of these “miracle” drugs are finding their way into patients’ bloodstreams, the mainstream media apparently now feels it’s safe to share some of these criticisms with the public.
To wit, NBC News reports that these medications will require “careful monitoring” by prescribing doctors. This could create problems and make doctors more reluctant to prescribe the meds as the omicron-driven winter wave “pummels” America’s supposedly creaking health-care system.
As the omicron surge pummels a pandemic-weary nation, the first antiviral pills for Covid-19 promise desperately needed protection for people at risk of severe disease. However, many people prescribed Pfizer’s or Merck’s new medications will require careful monitoring by doctors and pharmacists, and the antivirals may not be safe for everyone, experts caution.
As a reminder, the FDA only authorized Paxlovid – the Pfizer drug – to treat “mild to moderate” COVID in people as young as 12 who have underlying conditions that raise the risk of hospitalization and death.
Unfortunately, both Pfizer’s and Merck’s drugs come with some serious drawbacks,the biggest being that they can cause life-threatening reactions with widely used medications like statins – taken by people with high blood pressure – blood thinners, and even some antidepressants.
What’s more, the FDA doesn’t recommend Paxlovid for people who have severe liver and kidney disease.
The Merck drug hasn’t even been approved because the experts are worried about potential side effects. Because of this, the FDA has restricted its use to adults, and only in scenarios in which other authorized treatments, including monoclonal antibodies produced by Regeneron and others, are inaccessible or are not “clinically appropriate.”
Here’s a more detailed explanation of how the Pfizer drug works, and why it might be hazardous for some (courtesy of NBC News):
The Paxlovid cocktail consists of two tablets of the antiviral nirmatrelvir and one tablet of ritonavir, a drug that has long been used as what is known as a boosting agent in HIV regimens. Ritonavir suppresses a key liver enzyme called CYP3A, which metabolizes many medications, including nirmatrelvir. In the case of Paxlovid treatment, ritonavir slows the body’s breakdown of the active antiviral and helps it remain at a therapeutic level for longer.
The boosting effect was likely to have been crucial in driving Paxlovid’s high effectiveness in clinical trials.
When Paxlovid is paired with other medications that are also metabolized by the CYP3A enzyme, the chief worry is that the ritonavir component may boost the co-administered drugs to toxic levels. [Bold text Blog Editor’s]
One expert chimed in to warn that these interactions involving Paxlovid are “not trivial”.
“Some of these potential interactions are not trivial, and some pairings have to be avoided altogether,” said Peter Anderson, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. “Some are probably easily managed. But some we’re going to have to be very careful about.”
Supplies of Paxlovid and Molnupiravir are scarce – for now, at least. But the production line is roaring and the two competitors say they hope to produce millions of courses of each medication during the coming year.
We have a question: if a patient dies from an interaction involving a COVID antiviral and their blood pressure medication, would that still be counted as a COVID death?
If the globalists ‘inject everything that moves’ campaign ever had a worse week than this past one, we can’t think of when it was. Happily announcing not too long ago that their 100% ‘injected‘ US military would be impervious to COVID, the first bombshell to drop on the ‘cultists’ heads was announced in this story over at Epoch Times reporting the USS Milwaukee has had to pause its deployment on its 100% ‘injected’ ship after a massive COVID outbreak amongst its crew members.
Not the only ‘ship of fools‘ out sailing the world’s oceans now having massive problems with COVID outbreaks after over 1,000 Americans (presumably all fully ‘injected‘) were stranded off of the Coast of Mexico after 21 fully-injected cruise ship crew members also ‘caught the COVID’, please answer us, ‘potus Brandon’, why again are these ‘injections‘ being mandated when they clearly don’t work to stop people from catching or spreading COVID?
While I tried to avoid such a conversation on Christmas Day with a family member who I know took the shot as they tend to turn ‘divisive‘, ‘D‘ started the conversation that soon took an unexpected turn. Actually pointing out to me the story I referenced above of the USS Milwaukee and their fully injected crew members having an outbreak, ‘D‘, who was happy to take the original two injections, then asked me “why would anyone want to get ‘the booster’ when it’s clearly not working?”
When I told her that many of us have already ‘gotten past this’, and ‘getting past this’ begins with simply refusing to ‘comply’ with unjust ‘mandates‘, with many people leaving their jobs rather than ‘submit‘ to ‘them‘, it’ll clearly take widespread, worldwide ‘non-compliance‘ and ‘civil disobedience‘ on the grandest scale to take down this burgeoning tyranny.
So with even the Washington Post shocking many by putting out this recent story titled “President Biden Is Failing On COVID,” while Yahoo News published this story days ago warning of a ‘v– failure cover-up’ titled “Why won’t Florida, CDC release state’s breakthrough COVID data?”, we’re reaching the point where the masses will no longer be able to ignore the fact that they’re being lied to on a massive scale, just like my own sister, who long believed the globalists narrative before it fell apart before her eyes.
(ANP FUNDRAISER: Due to renewed censorship by ‘big tech’ upon ANP articles, we’re now running a fundraising drive. We also want to thank everybody who has donated to ANP over the years. With donations and ad revenue all that keep ANP online, if you’re able, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this fight for America’s future at this absolutely critical time in US history. During a time of systematic, ‘big tech’ censorship and widespread institutional corruption, truth-seeking media and alternative views are crucial, and EVERY little bit helps more than you could know!)
And as this recent story over at America’s Frontline Doctors warns, it’s not just ‘injection failure’ that the American people should be concerned, and even alarmed, about, but what they’re now witnessing on a grand scale in those who’ve trusted the mainstream media and govt health agencies and gotten injected. A concerning excerpt below from this story at their website titled “Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS): ‘We should anticipate seeing this immune erosion more widely’”.:
A Lancet study comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated people in Sweden was conducted among 1.6 million individuals over nine months. It showed that protection against symptomatic COVID-19 declined with time, such that by six months, some of the more vulnerable vaccinated groups were at greater risk than their unvaccinated peers.
Doctors are calling this phenomenon in the repeatedly vaccinated “immune erosion” or “acquired immune deficiency”, accounting for the elevated incidence of myocarditis and other post-vaccine illnesses that either affects them more rapidly, resulting in death or more slowly, resulting in chronic illness.
COVID vaccines are not traditional vaccines. Rather, they cause cells to reproduce one portion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the spike protein. The vaccines thus induce the body to create spike proteins. A person only creates antibodies against this one limited portion (the spike protein) of the virus. This has several downstream deleterious effects.
First, these vaccines “mid-train” the immune system to recognize only a small part of the virus (the spike protein). Variants that differ, even slightly, in this protein are able to escape the narrow spectrum of antibodies created by the vaccines.
Second, the vaccines create “vaccine addicts,” meaning persons become dependent upon regular booster shots because they have been “vaccinated” only against a tiny portion of a mutating virus. Australian Health Minister Dr. Kerry Chant has stated that COVID will be with us forever and people will “have to get used to” taking endless vaccines. “This will be a regular cycle of vaccination and revaccination.”
Third, the vaccines do not prevent infection in the nose and upper airways, and vaccinated individuals have been shown to have much higher viral loads in these regions. This leads to the vaccinated becoming “super-spreaders” as they carry extremely high viral loads.
In addition, the vaccinated become more clinically ill than the unvaccinated. Scotland reported that the infection fatality rate in the vaccinated is 3.3 times the unvaccinated, and the risk of death if hospitalized is 2.15 times the unvaccinated.
The warning also that ‘the autoimmune response to the coronavirus spike protein may last indefinitely‘, that story tied in the huge spike we’re now seeing in diseases such as myocarditis, strokes, and heart attacks in the fully injected, warning of a ‘wave’ of such illnesses in the future.:
“Ab2 antibodies binding to the original receptor on normal cells, therefore, have the potential to mediate profound effects on the cell that could result in pathologic changes, particularly in the long term — long after the original antigen itself has disappeared.”
These antibodies produced against the coronavirus spike protein could be responsible for the current unprecedented wave of myocarditis and neurological illnesses, and even more problems in the future.
So with even parts of the mainstream media now turning against ‘Brandon‘ as his COVID policies prove disastrous, we can’t help but keep coming back to Biden’s continuously talking last year of a ‘Dark Winter’ for Americans and his recent babbling that ‘unvaccinated Americans face a Winter of Death’, especially in light of Biden’s role in the2001 ‘OperationDark Winter exercises’ that featured a bioterror attack upon America.
As if the globalists foreshadowed and bluntly told us way back then of what was to come 20 years later, as we’ve reported numerous times on ANP, Biden claimed America was facing a very dark winter ahead backin November of 2020, inDecember of 2020 and then again in early January of 2021, all prior to him even being sworn into the office he and the Democrats ‘stole’.
So with the globalists ‘inject everything that moves’ narrative being ripped into little bits and pieces before Americans eyes, while Biden and the insane globalists still keep pushing the injection as the ‘answer’ to this entire mess which we’ve argued time and again that THEY CREATED to allow massive mail-in voting fraud to get chump Biden into office, we’ll continue to watch very closely what is happening all across America and the world as the globalists rush to complete their satanic ‘new world order‘ before enough people awaken and put a final stop to their madness.
Fox News has spoken with a number of US Marines, all of which they’ve granted anonymity to speak freely about Biden’s vaccine mandate and how they are being crushed for refusing to get the vaccine:
FOX NEWS – U.S. Marines are being “crushed” by President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as thousands face dismissal for their continued refusal to get the shot, several active-duty Marines told Fox News Digital.
To date, 169 Marines have been discharged for refusing the vaccine, and thousands more face the same fate after the Department of Defense’s mandate on all active-duty service members went into effect for the Marine Corps on Nov. 28.
Marines are allowed to apply for a religious exemption, but so far not a single application regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, or any vaccine for that matter, has been approved, a Marine Corps spokesman told Fox News.
Several Marines who refuse to get the shot were granted anonymity by Fox News Digital, so they could speak freely. They said they are witnessing a “political purge” by the Biden administration that is forcing out the military’s “best and brightest” over deeply held beliefs they say are protected by the First Amendment.
“There’s something fundamentally wrong at this point with our nation’s leadership,” said a major with more than 17 years of active service. “We are facing an unconstitutional edict that I think is very targeted as a political purge, taking out some of the best and brightest soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians from the Space Force.”
A lieutenant colonel with more than 19 years of active service said it appears that the military, specifically the Marine Corps, is discharging service members “as fast as they can and as brutally as they can, damaging every Marine as much as they can on the way out.”
“The one message I got from the colonel above me was: ‘Tread very carefully, this is political, you will be crushed like an ant.’ And he told me that because he cares about me,” the lieutenant colonel said. “Do I want to continue serving in an institution that crushes people for bringing up reasonable points in defending their faith?”
One master sergeant said it seems that “the louder I speak the tighter the screws are turned against me.”
“When you’re expected to behave a certain way and to obey certain rules and follow certain processes, and then to see on the other end that that’s not a two-way street, that’s a violation of my morals that I can’t stand by and not speak out about,” the master sergeant said.
The Marines who spoke with Fox News said they were on the receiving end of a “blanket” denial of religious exemptions, with their applications being rejected without consideration. Eight separate letters of denial provided to Fox News were nearly identical, citing “military readiness” as the primary reason for rejection.
“I saw one package from a sergeant who had attached, like, 30 pages of material to substantiate why his belief was sincere, under no lawful obligation to do so,” the master sergeant said. “And then to have this as a response with no individual inquiry and just a generalized assertion of governmental interest is insulting.”
“On the religious side, this is absolutely a travesty what’s happening,” one chief warrant officer said. “People are getting blanket denials, they’re not addressing the individual concerns or beliefs of Marines who are submitting for religious accommodations, and I think that’s just horribly wrong. I honestly believe that they’re not really reading the packages.”
Another lieutenant colonel, who said she leads an 800-strong support group for service members who oppose the vaccine, said, “Everyone else pretty much has a voice except the military, because we are not authorized to speak out in opposition to our leadership.”
“I’ve talked to so many different service members,” she said. “Just recently, one of the corporals in the group was absolutely distraught because one of his friends who also declined the shot recently just killed himself.”
“This is an absolute travesty,” she continued, choking back tears. “And I’m telling you, I am so upset about this. My heart is breaking for these people.”
Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Ryan Bruce told Fox News that as of Thursday, 3,080 of the 3,192 requests for religious accommodation concerning the COVID-19 vaccine mandate had been processed and zero had been approved, adding that “no religious accommodations have been approved for any other vaccine in the past seven years.”
Not a single religious exemption has been approved out of thousands of requests?? Then what’s the point of even offering a religious exemption?!? It’s almost as if it’s being offered it so they can appear as though they care about religious freedom, perhaps for potential legal battles they may face. But in reality, it’s all kabuki theater and will result in the dismissal of thousands of Marines, willing and able to serve, all over a stupid vaccine that doesn’t even last for that long, apparently.
And this comes at a time when both China and Russia appear to be preparing for invasions of our allies, Taiwan and Ukraine. And who knows what else, because the world knows Biden is super weak. They all saw it with their own eyes as he ran from the Taliban in Afghanistan, leaving Americans behind in the process.
I’ve said this before, but I never thought I’d see a president worse than Obama. But here we are.
No surprise the fearmongering machine is grinding out some more COVID-fear with yet another variant dubbed Omicron by the corrupt World Health Organization (WHO). Here’s a dose of truth the control Dem-Marxist and Communist-oriented Globalist-science control your every thought and action would rather YOU not know.
Third: A UGETube video (sorry WordPress version of my Blog – it won’t embed) of Dr. Dan Stock speaking at the 11/21/21 Texas COVID-19 Summit going over documented data of therapies proven more effective than the useless Jab when especially used in the early stages of a COVID infection (as opposed to a hospital waiting to your lungs are so full of blood clots you are put on a ventilator to breath but probably die) an the COVID infection dissipates quickly. (Hat Tip Vlad Tepes that posted a video-version of Dr. Stock’s 11/21/21 presentation today on 11/28/21 under the title “Dr. Stock on Ivermectin, Vitamin D and other supplements for Covid19 from the Texas Covid Summit November 21, 2021”.)
And Fourth: I have a Bitchute-version of a Banned Video platform of Alex Jones largely speaking of the control-factor behind COVID/Medical Tyranny including Omicron-COVID under the title, “SATURDAY EMERGENCY BROADCAST OMICRON VARIANT SIGNALS NEXT PHASE IN GLOBALIST BIO ATTACK”. If you are like me, you probably have had a mistrust of Alex Jones reporting due to past ludicrous Conspiracy Theories. NONETHELESS Jones has been spot-on with much of the occurring tyranny not only in the USA but also on a world-wide basis. It is the Alex Jones rep that he gets last place here and yet his info is worth a listen.

Omicron Variant Causes Unusual but Mild Symptoms: South African Medical Association Head
A petrol attendant stands next to a newspaper headline in Pretoria, South Africa, Saturday, Nov. 27, 2021. As the world grapples with the emergence of the new variant of COVID-19, scientists in South Africa — where omicron was first identified — are scrambling to combat its spread across the country. (AP Photo/Denis Farrell)
Coetzee recalled seeing a variety of patients enter with symptoms not associated with other CCP virus strains, including a high pulse rate.
“Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before,” Coetzee told The Telegraph.
Most of the patients who turned up to her clinic and have tested positive for COVID-19 felt tired.
Other symptoms included sore muscles and a slight cough, Coetzee added to Sputnik.
“There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected, some are currently being treated at home,” she said.
The most common symptoms from earlier variants include fever, dry cough, and loss of taste or smell, though some patients are known to have suffered from fatigue. A small subset of the infected require hospital care for their symptoms, and deaths are mostly among the elderly and people with serious underlying health conditions like obesity and kidney disease.
People with the Omicron variant were also identified in Botswana and later detected in a slate of other areas, including Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.
Many nations have barred or restricted travel from southern Africa over the variant, citing concerns that it’s more transmissible.
But top South African scientists told reporters Friday that little is known yet about Omicron.
Scientists are trying to gather more information about its transmissibility, whether it can evade immunity bestowed by vaccines or COVID-19 recovery, and whether it causes severe disease at a higher rate than other strains.
“Information on the virus is still evolving and no major conclusions can be drawn as yet,” Dr. Christopher Nyanga, Botswana’s health secretary, said in a statement dated Nov. 26.

Coetzee told The Guardian that experts weighing in how the variant may affect people were engaging in speculation.
“It may be it’s highly transmissible, but so far the cases we are seeing are extremely mild,” she said. “Maybe two weeks from now I will have a different opinion, but this is what we are seeing. So are we seriously worried? No. We are concerned and we watch what’s happening. But for now we’re saying, ‘OK: there’s a whole hype out there. [We’re] not sure why.’”
The United States ban on travelers from southern Africa was driven by a desire to better understand Omicron, health official Dr. Anthony Fauci said during a television appearance on Saturday.
“We want to give us some time to really fill in the blanks of what we don’t know right now,” he said.
South Africa on Saturday reported 3,220 new laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, an increase of 9.2 percent from the prior day. Still, the average daily cases are down considerably from the summer, when it peaked around 11,500.
Just 30 new hospital admissions with COVID-19 were reported in the last 24 hours, but another African expert warned that Omicron could lead to healthcare systems being overburdened.
“I’m worried that as the numbers go up that public health institutions are going to be overwhelmed,” Rudo Mathivha, head of the intensive care unit at Soweto’s Baragwanath Hospital, told a recent briefing.
Mathivha said the hospital is seeing different patients than earlier in the pandemic, including more younger people.

Patients who survived COVID-19 have such strong natural immunity that their chance of reinfection or serious side effects is minimal, according to a new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
The study conducted by researchers in Qatar reviewed global databases for 353,000 coronavirus patients who were infected between Feb. 28, 2020 and April 28, 2021.
The researchers excluded about 87,500 people who were vaccinated, and found of the remaining population only 1,304 got reinfected, with none requiring ICU hospitalization.
“Reinfections had 90% lower odds of resulting in hospitalization or death than primary infections,” the researchers said. “…Reinfections were rare and were generally mild, perhaps because of the primed immune system after primary infection.”
“Accordingly, for a person who has already had a primary infection, the risk of having a severe reinfection is only approximately 1% of the risk of a previously uninfected person having a severe primary infection,” the study concluded.
The researchers said it still needs to be determined “whether such protection against severe disease at reinfection lasts for a longer period, analogous to the immunity that develops against other seasonal ‘common-cold’ coronaviruses, which elicit short-term immunity against mild reinfection but longer-term immunity against more severe illness with reinfection.”
Such a finding could be significant, the researchers suggested, because it could mean COVID-19 could eventually “adopt a more benign pattern of infection when it becomes endemic.”
Unsurprisingly, the Banned Video Platform does embed on WordPress. You will have to click the video link to watch the documentary.
INFOWARS bills itself as the most banned network on the Internet. INFOWARS is probably among the top-tier of Leftist hated websites for truth telling. Let’s be fair and honest about INFOWARS and its owner Alex Jones. Prior to COVID, most of INFOWARS news was based on unverifiable sensationalism easily labeled Conspiracy Theory.
Today when it comes to COVID, the majority of INFOWARS reporting is based of verifiable documented evidence. Much of the Leftist venom tossed toward INFOWARS COVID news and documentaries is based on the past rather than the present.
With that intro to INFOWARS, Alex Jones has decided to make Part One of “COVIDLAND.” I believe the documentary is a 5-part series which are for sale. Part One is entitled, “COVIDLAND: The Lockdown”. Here it is on the INFOWARS video platform Banned Video.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
The latest release from Infowars is finally here! ‘COVIDLAND’ is a riveting and fast-paced movie made by award-winning filmmaker Paul Wittenberger and narrated by Alex Jones that’s designed to break people out of their trance, see the big picture, and take our world back!
In a post submitted by Justin Smith in November 2020 a huge amount of info is available related to how COVID was a Plandemic/Scamdemic tool by Globalist neo-Marxists (of which American Dem-Marxists are part and parcel) to transform political rule by instilling fear in the masses. Particularly in the masses that exercise voting rights to determine who governs the PEOPLE.
If you are not familiar with terms associated with this Plandemic/Scamdemic that ushered in Dementia-Beijing Joe and his Dem-Marxist oligarchy into power in America give “[REFUSE] THE DARKEST WINTER” another examination. You should be or become familiar with terminology found there as:
Just to name-drop a few Marxist/Globalist plans for your life thought out before despotism came into existence.
Fear has not only been used to manipulate elections, FEAR has been used to make sure criminal election acts are not adjudicated by the legal system.
NOW it appears the Globalist-Marxists (including American Dem-Marxists) are about to utilize lessons learned in fear to consolidate power over YOUR life. The Left has so much hubris they don’t even show concern the next medical fearmongering is documented.
I ran into a 90-minute video on Bitchute with Infowars led by Alex Jones exposing the next documented Plandemic – SPARS Pandemic 2025 – 2028. You can read the Johns Hopkins documentation in PDF format under the title, “The SPARS Pandemic 2025–2028: A Futuristic Scenario to Facilitate Medical Countermeasure Communication”. I downloaded the PDF in case Leftist-hubris is overcome by concern to be exposed. You can still find Event 201 (etc.) documentation so I have doubts Leftist-hubris will subside anytime soon.
Alex Jones points to the similarities of the COVID spread, the experimental vaccine implementation and the coverup vaccine deaths and long-term vaccine side-affect tragedies NOW OCCURING and the SPARS Pandemic 2025 – 2028predictions published in 2017.
I suspect you are thinking info from Alex Jones is not credible due to numerous debunked Conspiracy Theories associated with his name. I KNOW I would have doubts before the assault of the CCP-COVID Virus exploding globally doing the very things Globalist-Marxist documentation predicted ahead of time still being fearmongered.
To alleviate Alex Jones skepticism, before cross posting the video, I am going to cross post SPARS Pandemic 2025 -2028 exposés that are separate from Infowars info. BUT you should really take some time (in segments of your availability if need be) to observe what Alex Jones has discovered.

A 2017 document by Johns Hopkins is currently going viral which details plans for a global medical response under a hypothetical ‘exercise’ pandemic named “SPARS 2025-2028”, mirroring today’s world scenarios under COVID-19.
The Center’s SPARS Pandemic exercise narrative comprises a futuristic scenario that illustrates communication dilemmas concerning medical countermeasures (MCMs) that could plausibly emerge in the not-so-distant future.
The self-guided exercise scenario for public health communicators and risk communication researchers covers a raft of themes and associated dilemmas in risk communications, rumor control, interagency message coordination and consistency, issue management, proactive and reactive media relations, cultural competency, and ethical concerns.
The most interesting thing about this document is how it mirrors and outlines the entirety of the current Plandemic. The similarities are uncanny, including strategies for the MSM, presidents and celebrities being used to sell the vaccines – to the actual fatality rates being ‘predicted’ along with the numbers, to tweets and marketing campaigns, to “isolation procedures”. They even planned in advance how to counter people’s arguments on social media that question the side effects of the experimental vaccines, including calling everyone questioning the main narrative a conspiracy theorist.
Some people on social media have commented that the paper was basically a retrospective on the past year, and asked the questions about where the breakdowns in communication were. The interesting part is that while it reads like a retrospective of the past year, the John Hopkins website says that it was completed in October 2017.
“After showing no adverse side effects for nearly a year, vaccine recipients slowly began to experience symptoms.”
“As time passed and more people across the United States were vaccinated, claims of adverse side effects began to emerge.”
“As the investigations grew in intensity, several high-ranking officials at the CDC and FDA were forced to step down and withdraw from government.”
“Nearing the end of 2027, reports of new neurological symptoms began to emerge.”
“Several parents claimed that their children were experiencing neurological symptoms.”
“Small groups of individuals spread throughout the country, for example, who felt that natural cures such as garlic and vitamins would be more effective at treating SPARS than an “untested” drug, were much less likely to accept Kalocivir as a treatment option or even seek medical attention for SPARS-like symptoms. Similarly, some ethnic minorities, and particularly ethnic groups who lived close together in large, tight-knit communities, also rejected Kalocivir.”
“As the pandemic tapered off, several influential politicians and agency representatives came nder fire for sensationalizing the severity of the event for perceived political gain. As with many public health interventions, successful efforts to reduce the impact of the pandemic created the illusion that the event was not nearly as serious as experts suggested it would be. President Archer’s detractors in the Republican Party seized the opportunity to publicly disparage the President and his administration’s response to the pandemic, urging voters to elect “a strong leader with the best interests of the American people at heart.”
“In an effort to further reach certain population subgroups, agency officials enlisted the help of well-known scientists, celebrities, and government officials to make short videos and Zap clips and, in a few cases, give interviews to major media outlets. Among those chosen were former President Jaclyn Bennett; BZee, a popular hiphop star; and Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health and a renowned global health expert… While common messaging resulted in more cohesive traditional media coverage, the celebrity outreach campaign was more problematic.”
“What are the roles of a media-literate staff and organizational capacity to communicate via both social and traditional media platforms critical to understanding and influencing public debates about an MCM like Kalocivir?”
“What communication strategies might be effective for breaking into, and engaging with otherwise self-isolating groups who oppose a recommended MCM like Corovax and might be placing themselves and others at risk during the outbreak?”
How might federal health authorities avoid people possibly seeing an expedited SPARS vaccine development and testing process as somehow “rushed” and inherently flawed, even though that process still meets the same safety and efficacy standards as any other vaccine?
“That month, a group of parents whose children developed mental retardation as a result of encephalitis in the wake of Corovax vaccination sued the federal government, demanding removal of the liability shield protecting the pharmaceutical companies responsible for developing and manufacturing Corovax.”
“Given the positive reaction to the federal government’s response and the fact that the majority of US citizens willing to be vaccinated had already been immunized, the negative publicity surrounding adverse reactions had little effect on nationwide vaccination rates.”
“A widespread social media movement led primarily by outspoken parents of affected children, coupled with widespread distrust of “big pharma,” supported the narrative that the development of SPARS MCMs was unnecessary and driven by a few profit-seeking individuals. Conspiracy theories also proliferated across social media, suggesting that the virus had been purposely created and introduced to the population by drug companies or that it had escaped from a government lab secretly testing bioweapons.”
“In order to prioritize distribution of limited Corovax supply, the federal government requested that states report summary information for patient electronic health records (EHRs) to estimate the number of individuals in high-risk populations. This effort was met with resistance from the public, who protested the federal government accessing their private medical information.”
“The Corovax vaccination program met resistance from several groups: alternative medicine proponents, Muslims, African Americans, and anti-vaccination activists. Initially operating independently, these groups banded together via social media to increase their influence.”
“Japan announced that it would not approve Corovax for use in Japan in favor of developing and producing its own vaccine.”

Here is a link to the SPARS Pandemic document. A 2017 Johns Hopkins document details plans for Big Pharma global domination. “This document is the holy grail. The key to defeating the globalist.” – Alex Jones
(LastAmericanVagabond) In the months since SARS-CoV-2 was declared a pandemic, researchers and journalists have spent countless hours searching for relevant information that might shed some light on the origins of what has come to be known as COVID-19. This research has led some to a number of simulations and exercises which “war gamed” a potential viral outbreak and asked how the people and institutions of the world would respond.
As TLAV has extensivelydocumented, the pandemic exercises are numerous. The most well-known simulation is likelyEvent 201, a high-level pandemic exercise organized by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation partnered with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the World Economic Forum on October 18, 2019. Event 201 simulated how the world would respond to a fictional coronavirus pandemic known as CAPS which swept around the planet. The simulation imagined 65 million people dying, mass lock downs, quarantines, censorship of alternative viewpoints under the guise of fighting “disinformation,” and even floated the idea of arresting people who question the pandemic narrative.
Another exercise known as Crimson Contagion simulated an outbreak of a respiratory virus originating from China. From August 13 to August 16, 2019, Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), headed by Alex Azar, partnered with numerous national, state, and local organizations for the exercise. According to the results of theOctober 2019 draft report, the spread of the novel avian influenza (H7N9) resulted in 110 million infected Americans, 7.7 million hospitalizations, and 586,000 deaths.
Another simulation known asClade Xtook place onMay 2018. This event examined the response to a pandemic resulting from the release of a fictional virus known as Clade X. In the simulation, the virus was released by a terror group called A Brighter Dawn. As the outbreak spread through the United States, the participants asked what would be needed if the President issued a federal quarantine, noting that authorities would need to “Determine (the) level of force authorized to maintain quarantine.” The Clade X exercise also resulted in the federal government nationalizing the healthcare system.
A lesser known exercise involving the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security took place in 2017. This exercise also involved a coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world between 2025 and 2028. While the exercise has received very little press, the details and findings of the simulation are extremely relevant to COVID-19.
The SPARS Pandemic, 2025-2028
In October 2017, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security released their report, SPARS Pandemic, 2025-2028: A Futuristic Scenario for Public Health Risk Communicators. The report is written from the perspective of someone in 2030 who is looking back on a pandemic which swept around the world between 2025 and 2028. The document states that the creators identified major socioeconomic, demographic, technological, and environmental trends which they believe are likely to emerge during this period. The two trends they said are likely to influence public health emergencies are “varying degrees of access to information technology” and increased “fragmentation among populations along social, political, religious, ideological, and cultural lines.”
The document states:
“Ultimately, a world comprised of isolated and highly fragmented communities with widespread access to information technology—dubbed “the echo-chamber”—was selected as the future in which the prospective scenario would take place. From this point, scenario-specific storylines were then developed, drawing on subject matter expertise, historical accounts of past medical countermeasure crises, contemporary media reports, and scholarly literature in sociology, emergency preparedness, health education, and risk and crisis communication. These sources were used to identify communication challenges likely to emerge in future public health emergencies.”
The exercise describes the world of 2025 as “more connected, yet more divided” with near universal access to wireless internet. The report discusses a new technology known as internet accessing technology (IAT), which is described as “thin, flexible screens that can be temporarily attached to briefcases, backpacks, or clothing and used to stream content from the internet.” New social media platforms also affect the digital landscape, including ZapQ, a platform that “enables users to aggregate and archive selected media content from other platforms and communicate with cloud-based social groups based on common interests and current events.”
While this has allowed for an increase and ease in sharing news, many people choose to “self-restrict the sources they turn to for information”, creating the echo chambers.
In mid-October 2025, three deaths were reported at a church in St. Paul, Minnesota. Two church members recently returned from a trip to the Philippines. While their deaths were initially assumed to be influenza, laboratory results later disproved this theory. Eventually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed that the three patients were infected with a novel coronavirus, known as the St. Paul Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SPARS-CoV, or SPARS).
Interestingly, the report notes that “early case fatality estimates were inflated” with the CDC estimating SPARS case fatality rate of 4.7%, and the WHO saying 14-15% and over 50% for people over the age of 64. Later studies would provide a more accurate estimate of only 0.6%. This simulated scenario mimics what we have seen with COVID-19. The CDC and WHO both initially claimed the fatality rate was much higher before later admitting that the rate was below 1%.
The report goes on to detail how public health and medical professionals were not successful in stopping the spread of SPARS. By time Thanksgiving and Black Friday arrived the transmission of SPARS accelerated due to asymptomatic individuals traveling. By mid-December, SPARS cases were reported in 26 states, as well as Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Japan, and several European countries.
Eventually, an animal vaccine is seen as a potential solutions. Ranchers had used the vaccine to treat a SPARS-like respiratory coronavirus disease in cows and pigs in the Philippines. The vaccine manufacturer, GMI, claimed the vaccine would help, but clinical trials reveal side effects, including swollen legs, severe joint pain, and encephalitis leading to seizures or death. There was no data available on the long term effects of the GMI vaccine. Despite this controversy, CynBio, a US-based pharmaceutical corporation developed a SPARS vaccine based on the GMI technology.
Much like in real life, the simulation states that the Department of Health and Human Services agreed to provide liability protection to the vaccine manufacturer CynBio in the event someone is harmed from the vaccine. This is the same situation we have seen with COVID-19, where U.S. government officials have acknowledged that the vaccine companies are going to be given indemnity against potential liabilities arising from their products.
The simulation makes it clear that health officials have planned for potential vaccine injuries and the objection to vaccine mandates. In one section the report asks, “How might federal health authorities respond to critics who propose that liability protection for SPARS vaccine manufacturers jeopardizes individual freedom and wellbeing?”
The report goes on to discuss the creation of a therapeutic called Kalocivir and how a growing number of individuals begin to challenge the use of pharmaceuticals and vaccines. These individuals who promoted “natural cures such as garlic and vitamins” were less likely to take Kalocivir or seek medical attention for SPARS-like symptoms.
Concerns about Kalocivir increased in February 2026 when a viral video shows a three-year-old boy projectile vomiting after taking a dose of the therapeutic. The clip is shared across the U.S. with the hashtags #NoKalocivir and #NaturalIsBetter. Social media activists began to use ZapQ groups to share the video and also place IAT screens on the backs of their jackets and backpacks while looping the video. By the summer the video is the most shared “Zap clip” among junior high and high school students.
Another telling line from the Center for Health Security report notes that even though SPARS cases had begun to drop off, the “persistent social media buzz around the pandemic ensured that public anxiety remained high.” Again, this mirrors what we are seeing with COVID-19.
By May 2026 the CDC admitted that SPARS was only fatal in 0.6% of cases in the United States. This reality was reflected on social media, where much of the public began to recognize that SPARS was not as dangerous as they had been told. “Combined with persisting doubts about Kalocivir and the lack of a commercially available SPARS vaccine, the new, lower case fatality rate estimate led the public to grow increasingly hostile toward continued SPARS messaging,” the report states.
The report details how the CDC, the FDA, and other government agencies worked with “social media experts” to develop public health messaging campaigns about SPARS, Kalocivir, and the forthcoming vaccine, Corovax. Much like in the Event 201 exercise, the SPARS simulation involved enlisting the help of “well-known scientists, celebrities, and government officials” to make videos and give interviews promoting the government messaging campaigns.
The public did not respond well to the campaigns and instead took to social media to express their disapproval. The mainstream media even began to question the government narrative and the safety of the Corovax. The opposition to the Corovax merged with the growing anti-vaccination movement which emerged on social media. These groups were made up of Muslims who opposed the vaccine; African Americans, who did not trust the government due to fears of experimentation on the black community; the alternative medicine community; and the “anti-vaccination” community.
These vaccine opponents spread information claiming that Corovax was not properly tested and had unknown side effects. National polls conducted in mid-August 2026 showed that 68% of US citizens had seen a post or read a comment from someone expressing anti-Corovax sentiments. Even the Japanese government rejected the Corovax, leading to viral video clips of Japanese news conferences.
In response to the Corovax opposition, the U.S. government began working with social media and search companies to target advertisements to individuals searching for “anti-vaccination websites.” The CDC also began mining data from public social media sources for “positive stories” they could promote via social media. The U.S. government also asked healthcare providers to grant access to patients’ electronic health records (EHRs) in an attempt to determine the number of individuals in high risk populations in particular areas.
Aftermath: Long-Term Side Effects, Lawsuits and a Loss of Trust
The report describes how adverse side effects began to emerge as more Americans received the vaccine. Parents claimed their children were experiencing neurological symptoms similar to those seen in the animals injected with the GMI vaccine. By May 2027, parents began filing lawsuits and demanding a removal of the liability protecting the pharmaceutical companies who developed Corovax. The report states that “concern was particularly high among some African American parents who continued to question the government’s motives regarding the Corovax vaccination campaign.”
By the end of 2027, new neurological symptoms began to appear in people who had taken Corovax. “After showing no adverse side effects for nearly a year, several vaccine recipients slowly began to experience symptoms such as blurry vision, headaches, and numbness in their extremities,” the Center for Health Security wrote. The report says that by 2030 it was still unclear if the vaccinations were to blame for the side-effects.
The social media backlash caught the HHS off guard as they faced pressure to award compensation to those experiencing long-term effects from Corovax. The public increasingly held negative opinions regarding the vaccine and what they perceived as indifference to the victims.
As the report wraps up it examines how the world looks from 2030, five years after the SPARS pandemic began. While the pandemic officially ended in 2028, cases exist in 14 countries across Europe, Africa, and Asia. WHO experts anticipate that future outbreaks will continue to emerge unless countries maintain widespread vaccination coverage.
As the public finally goes back to “normal life” they begin to focus their frustrations on politicians and agency representatives who they blame for exaggerating the severity of the event. Eventually, several high-ranking officials within the CDC and FDA are forced to retire. However, there appears to be a lack of accountability as there is “little desire” to “rehash the events of the past several years.”
Of course, the simulation states that “conspiracy theories also proliferated across social media, suggesting that the virus had been purposely created and introduced to the population by drug companies or that it had escaped from a government lab secretly testing bioweapons.” These sort of accusations have also been lobbed at researchers during the COVID-19 crisis and used to justify censorship.
While the “Echo Chamber” exercise is as a fictional scenario, it is important to understand what the researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security have observed. While these events are not intended to be a prediction of things to come, history has shown that simulations and exercises of this sort can often offer a window of how governments and private institutions will respond in times of crisis to come.
[USSA News places the InfoWars video which I am cross posting later in this post]
Anthony Fauci is on video in 2017 predicting the current COVID outbreak and he spent millions of dollars at several labs, including at the Level 4 facility in Wuhan, China to weaponize viruses by bioengineering so-called “gain of function”.
Also in 2017, Johns Hopkins published “The SPARS Pandemic 2025-2028”, a report about a drill for a vaccine that caused spongiform encephalopathy aka “Mad Cow” prion disease.
There is a concern, that as with other “drills” they have published in the past, such as Crimson Contagion and Event 201, the SPARS report will turn out to be the actual script of a planned genocidal attack on the mass populace that is unfolding as we speak, because many scenarios in the report have indeed already come to pass.
In the SPARS drill, it is the politicians – not Big Pharma – who are blamed for speeding up the release of the vaccines without proper testing and trials, thus unleashing this massive brain damage due to prion disease in children and adults, which has an onset of 6 months to a year to develop after the injection. Alex Jones says here that “Trump really stepped into it. He got set-up, bigtime.”
The SPARS report is the smoking gun, the blueprint for how they’re going to censor people and for how they will cover up the side effects. It is a script of talking points for the Globalist minions who are read-in to this diabolical plan.
The intended result of all of this is to centralize all medical authority on Earth within the UN with its own massive Marshall Fund to enact total medical tyranny that makes our current reality seem like a mask-free walk in the park.
Adams discusses people and all events in which the scenario is Donald Trump remains President at some point in 2021. My perspective is what is shared is under the category of wishful/hopeful thinking. In the public realm I just haven’t observed any actions that changes or rights Dem-Marxist election crimes and coup.
SO, if Adams is correct, things will occur dramatically in a moment of time. If it is bunk, Communism slowly spreads across American rule of law (the rule of the lawless) that makes COVID look like a picnic as the American Republic probably experiences final death throws into Sheepledom. I for one will not submit to Marxist Sheepledom.
Alex Jones is literally being censored on every digital media format I can think of.
I have to be clear. I am not a supporter or big fan of Mr. Jones. Many of his Conspiracy Theories propagated from his soapbox are just plain outlandish and crazy.
The massive digital censorship Jones is accused of is hate-speech. Frankly, as outlandish and offensive Jones can be I am not surprised the hate-speech accusations are levelled against him.
I do have a couple of problems with the censorship.
ONE: The same media platforms censoring Jones allow Muslims to spew Jew-Hatred and promote physical harm to Jews and other non-Muslims. However, when a non-Muslim points out Islamic tenets and Muslim history demonstrate violent hatred for all things non-Muslim specifying Jews, Christians and polytheists. Militant homosexuals overtly express hatred toward Biblical Values Christians yet will censor Biblical Values Christians for supporting the Bible’s labelling the homosexual practice a sin against God’s Word. In essence this is censorship hypocrisy.
TWO: The same media platforms rarely if ever censor Left-Wing calls for violence against Conservatives yet they will censor Conservatives refuting a violent Leftist agenda. For example Maxine Walters advocating Leftists to disrupt reputed Conservative meetings and Conservatives living their private lives at open-to-the-public venues. Astonishingly to date, Conservative individuals have refused to respond with self-defense violence for Leftist provocation. I’m a disabled dude and I don’t know if I would exhibit such self-restraint to respond with action if someone shouting directly in front of my face.
I hate defending Alex Jones because I am convinced he has used actual hate-speech; however look at some of phrases the digital media platforms label as hate-speech worthy of censorship via banning:
If the hate-speech was critical of a belief system corresponding to Islam or the LGBTQ agenda, then said hate-speech violation is an absurd accusation. If Jones said something dimwitted such as maybe, “hunt down the camel jockeys and give them a tasted of their own medicine” or “rope the fudge-packer and drag the shem down the road”. Those kinds of phrases are indeed inciting violence and is a good reason for censuring and/or banning.
Here is the Joseph Farah email (which is also a bit of a fundraiser) that inspired my thoughts.
I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today.
It’s not government.
Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth internet gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon.
This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show. He was an easy target and a predictable one – a controversial figure, without doubt, and a high-profile one with a sizable following.
Not everyone wants to defend Alex Jones – certainly not everything he says.
Yet, the First Amendment wasn’t crafted by America’s founding geniuses to protect tepid, non-controversial speech. It was crafted to protect just this kind of fiery dialogue – the kind that offends some people, some sensibilities. Alex Jones is a good choice to start the censorship juggernaut rolling if you think like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And one thing Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon all have in common is their love of, reverence for, and partnerships with this extremist band of smear merchants who never met anyone right of center that they didn’t label a “hater,” a “fascist,” a “Nazi” or a “racist” – including, of course, the current president of the United States.
So, first the Digital Cartel came for Alex Jones.
Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”
I’m going to defend Alex Jones’ right to say what he wants – even if I sometimes, or even often, find myself in disagreement with him. And I’m going to condemn this cabal of bloated mega-corporations imposing their ideology on America’s most vital public square – the digital media.
Maybe you say, “Well, Farah, don’t these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?” The answer may be surprising: No, they don’t. None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the “press.” They are more akin to “utilities” – like the telephone companies of old, or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology. They don’t have to like Alex Jones. They don’t have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to hold these privileged positions of making lots of money by distributing all manner of content, data and information to the public, they dare not think of themselves as ideological gatekeepers against “offensive” political speech. And they better not designate the disgraced partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is precisely what they have done – all of them!
I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.
It’s time to throw down the gauntlet, draw a marker in the sand, file class-action lawsuits, summon our leaders to action.
Are we going to let this cabal render the First Amendment null and void?
I’ve been telling you how they have attacked WND relentlessly and ruthlessly through its politically and religiously discriminatory algorithms. I’ve told you how they have been coming after the independent media, especially since the 2016 election that so disappointed all of them.
Do you really want to talk about supposed Russian interference in our free society when this powerful monolithic cartel is setting the rules of debate for Americans out in plain sight – openly censoring voices they don’t like while systematically elevating those they do like? What a sick joke!
As for me, I will defend the voices of dissent, and even controversy, as long as I have a soapbox upon which to stand. I know they are coming after me and the world’s first independent online news company, which I founded 21 years ago. Once again, I ask you to stand with me, or else find yourself living in a country you won’t long recognize. No privacy. No freedom.
Please support us, or risk finding yourself living in a very different and scary version of America soon.
Mark Alexander spanks Alex Jones over Jade Helm 15 Conspiracy Theories then Alexander goes on to show there are more patriots in the U.S. Military than any Leftist revolutionaries that an Obama might drum up for martial law or suspending the Constitution. The icing on the cake is Alexander’s brief explanation for the reason the Founding Fathers made a Second Amendment is to give the American people the opportunity to rise up against a rogue despotic government.
“Nothing is so contagious as opinion, especially on questions which … beget in the mind a distrust of itself.” —James Madison (1790)
Have you heard about Jade Helm 15? If the answer is “no,” then you don’t get your “news” from the paranoid purveyors of conspiracy theories at websites such as Infowars and World Net Daily. They gin up concern about non-issues in order to drive traffic to their websites — and to thereby sell advertising, products and services.
Jade Helm 15 is the name of a major military exercise scheduled to run between 15 July and 15 September. The exercise is coordinated by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and involves special forces units of the Army and other service branches.
According to the Army SpecOps Command: “While multi-state training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart. To stay ahead of the environmental challenges faced overseas, Jade Helm will take place across seven states. However, Army Special Operations Forces (ARSOF) will only train in five states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. The diverse terrain in these states replicates areas Special Operations Soldiers regularly find themselves operating in overseas. The training exercise will be conducted on private and public land with the permission of the private landowners, and from state and local authorities.”
An unclassified power point lays out the exercise in some detail. It involves about 1,200 military personnel, primarily Army Green Berets and infantry, but also some Navy SEALS and Air Force special operators.
Compared to other recent domestic military exercises, Jade Helm is large for peacetime practice (if you consider these to be “peacetimes”) and it’s the “the size and scope” that has all the conspiracy conscripts concerned that its real purpose is to prepare for an imminent declaration of martial law.
In Texas, home to almost two million active duty military personnel and veterans, the king of charismatic conspiracy kooks, Alex Jones, has generated a lot of heartburn among his unwitting lemmings.
Jones says he stopped using marijuana because “it made me paranoid,” then dropped out of Austin Community College before launching his Austin-based conspiracy enterprises, Infowars and his populist radio programs. Over the last few months, he has alerted his two million listeners that Jade Helm is “way worse than you realize,” claiming it was really about “military, police working together toward population control,” and “the U.S. Army’s plan to wage war on the American people.” According to Jones, “They’re going to practice breaking into things and stuff. This is going to be hellish. Now this is just a cover for deploying the military on the streets… This is an invasion … in preparation for the financial collapse and maybe even Obama not leaving office.”
Jones has ginned up concern with headlines like “Beyond Denial: Preparations for Martial Law in America,” warning that the “U.S. military is positioning itself to take over the states and declare martial law.”
This is the same Alex Jones who insists the federal government staged the Oklahoma City bombing and that George Bush organized the 9/11 attack.
He has stirred up so many Lone Star folks that Gov. Greg Abbott is having the State Guard monitor Jade Helm in an effort to quell the discontent. According to Abbott, “It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed.”
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert says his office “has been inundated with calls,” and adds, “Certainly, I can understand these concerns. When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even ‘cling to guns or religion,’ patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned.”
House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mack Thornberry (R-TX) says that the idea of our military acting as Obama’s “private army” was “just silly.” And of course it is.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he had “no reason to doubt” the nature and purpose of this exercise, and offered a rational explanation for the Jade Helm concerns: “I think part of the reason is we have seen, for six years, a federal government disrespecting the liberty of the citizens. And that produces fear. When you see a federal government that is attacking our free speech rights, or religious liberty rights, [and] our Second Amendment rights, that produces distrust as to government.”
Defense Secretary Ashton Carter assured those concerned that the DoD has been “very open and upfront about our training activities” and “very responsive” to citizen inquiries — and they have.
Unfortunately, otherwise rational grassroots folks get swept up by conspiracy charismatics.
So, reality check — should folks be concerned about “the size and scope” of the Jade Helm exercise?
The short answer is “no,” but I admit that my perspective on such exercises is somewhat biased.
Having held for almost 25 years an executive-level appointment in a reserve national security capacity (one of those so-called “shadow government” folks assigned to FEMA/DHS), I have been involved in more than a few training exercises for senior military personnel.
Thus, I can assure you that the number of conservative Patriots in uniform is much higher than in any other profession. May I remind you that, according to reputable annual surveys conducted by The Military Times, Barack Obama’s approval rating among military personnel has fallen from a paltry 35% in 2009 to just 15% now, while his disapproval ratings have increased to 55%.
Obama loathes our military Patriots, as most of them do him. Frankly, he has far more concern about military loyalties than the good people of Texas need have. The notion that somehow our military Patriots will follow a pathological narcissist like Obama down a path to tyranny is patently absurd.
This is not to say that Americans should not be vigilant against the mischief that can infiltrate standing armies when a Socialist Democrat occupies the Executive Branch.
In 2010, we were alerted by some of our readers within the military that the designer of an Army security exercise listed the grassroots Tea Party among the terrorist groups that might assault Ft. Knox — “in order to make it more realistic.” We exposed this exercise in a column titled “Army Preps for Tea Party ‘Terrorists’,” and within hours of publication we heard from the commanding officer at Ft. Knox that the exercise was scrapped and the individual who drafted that scenario was being disciplined.
But there is a wide gulf between rational vigilance and the conspiracy hysterics currently associated with Jade Helm.
Rational vigilance has its origins with our Founders.
In 1783, George Washington wrote, “A large standing Army in time of Peace hath ever been considered dangerous to the liberties of a Country, yet a few Troops, under certain circumstances, are not only safe, but indispensably necessary.”
In 1787, in a speech before the Constitutional Convention, James Madison argued, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.”
Consequently, Article I, Section 8, Clause 12 of our Constitution reads, “The Congress shall have Power To … raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years…”
In other words, our Founders understood that the size of our military should comport with the exigencies of the time. Unfortunately, the current CINC does not understand those exigencies.
Our Founders also understood that American security against a standing army whose leaders disregarded their solemn oaths to defend our Constitution was contained in the plain language of that venerable document’s Second Amendment as the first assurance of the unalienable Rights of Man.
In 1787 Noah Webster observed, “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”
Madison, who was the principal author of our Constitution, noted, “The ultimate authority … resides in the people alone. … [T]he advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”
Our Founders uniformly understood that the individual right to self-defense constituted the best defense of Liberty for the whole people. Madison’s Supreme Court appointee, Justice Joseph Story, best summed up the Second Amendment: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
A century after the American Revolution, Congress enacted a specific prohibition, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, greatly limiting the use of military forces by federal authorities in a domestic law enforcement capacity. The primary exception is the use of National Guard and state defense forces under the authority of the governor of a state.
So what to do with the conspiracy propagandists on the Left and Right?
First, it’s worth understanding the nature of such theories and those who buy into these deceptions.
Every conspiracy theory is a combination of a foundational fact plus a lot of fiction heaped upon it — and each depends on a basic maxim, “You can’t prove a negative.” Pop conspiracy theories are all constructed on this predictable formula: 10% substance and 90% fragrance.
Most of these conspiracies assert the existence of a global political or economic “star chamber,” often puppet masters who are members of the Bilderberg Group or the Council on Foreign Relations.
Most disciples of such nonsense are not inherently ignorant or bad, but they harbor basic insecurities that compel them to grasp “straw man” explanations when their insecurities are triggered. The sense of order out of chaos derived from a conspiracy theory tends to satiate their insecurity. Notably, they are often most vulnerable to Internet conspiracy gurus, who decode events with greatly simplified theories. The most ardent adherents within these cults — the 9/11 “Truthers,” for example — have surrendered their willingness to discern fact from fiction in order to sustain their sense of security.
Beyond understanding the psychology behind this phenomenon, conspiracy theorists should be boldly called out for the pathetic frauds they are, and we should encourage anyone who subscribes to their folly to stop drinking their toxic Kool-Aid.
Jones, et al., are doing an enormous disservice to the conservative movement in Texas, dragging a lot of otherwise rational folks down a rat hole and creating unwarranted tension between civilian and military Patriots. Jones has never taken an oath “to Support and Defend” our Constitution, nor has he served a day in uniform. He has no understanding of the sense of duty, honor and sacrifice that forms the foundational drive among our military personnel.
Former Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a Republican who served under Rick Perry, published a Dallas Morning News op-ed calling out the travesty of the Jade Helm conspiracy clowns. Dewhurst wrote, “Unfortunately, some Texans have projected their legitimate concerns about the competence and trustworthiness of President Barack Obama onto these noble warriors. This must stop.”
Indeed it must.

On March 1st I posted the video “I am a Ukrainian” on my blogs. The video was actually posted circa February 10, 2014. The video is a close-up of a Ukrainian gal that is pleasant on the eyes sharing with the world her feelings on the corruption that has existed in Ukraine with its government and as such is the reason for Ukrainians to flow to a public square – Maidan – in Kiev. The gal is identified only as Yulia and she implores for the video to go viral in the USA for Americans to write their Congressmen to show support for Ukraine. This all happened before Russia invaded the Crimea (Western) portion of Ukraine. I was glad to participate with many others to have the video go viral. I might add that Yulia asks for NO money.
In the comment section of this video a Google+ friend – Black Bear – left this comment on my SlantRight 2.0 blog:
I was a bit disturbed about someone calling the “I am a Ukrainian” video scum. In hindsight I think Black Bear’s comment was something we all do; i.e. comment quickly without checking our spelling.I suspect “scum” was supposed to be “scam”. So I clicked the Youtube link which took me to a Prison Planet/Infowars produced video:
VIDEO: ‘I am a Ukrainian’ Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam
I hadn’t actually clicked the “FULL STORY” link as yet. From memory I noted that the narration indicated this was a one-sided propaganda produced by the U.S. State Department through Larry Diamond a political promoter of Democratic initiatives globally (á la association to Jimmy Carter influenced NGOs). I was more disturbed so I wrote Justin Smith who gave me the hat tip to the video and who I also had previously posted an essay based on interviews with Ukrainian activists. I had queried if he knew anything about accusations that “I am a Ukrainian” is a hoax. He responded:
This is indeed a powerful statement. But, unbelievably, I’ve been catch ‘in a little heat from some of my friends, who have mistakenly taken my support for these Ukrainian activists as support of the UN, EU and IMF, which nothing could be farther from the truth.
Support of the Ukrainian protesters is supporting a government that will hopefully turn away from the corruption of past Ukrainian governments. I don’t necessarily think a strong tie of any sort with the EU is in the best interest of Ukraine at the moment, and like I’ve told them….nothing is in concrete at the moment.
A similar deal fell through last year, because the details could not be agreed upon with the IMF. But really, al the Ukraine should be looking for at the moment is a short term arrangement with very limited requirements from them in the future, and nothing that will further damage their sovereignty.
If they can really move away from corrupt leadership, that in and of itself will work wonders for their economy, inasmuch as, so much of the national treasury will not be stolen in the manner in which Vanukovych walked away with $40 million. Then the rest, while not easy, will be less difficult as they revamp business and government practices so that the nation and every individual is able to thrive…
In the end, a limited relationship with the EU, that draws Ukraine closer to the West, is more desired, than watching Ukraine pulled back into a Soviet-style sphere under Putin’s proposed Eurasian Union (EAU)… (Justin Smith via email circa 3/1/14)
In other words I believe Justin knew nothing of any hoax but knows the situation is critical for the rule of law and Liberty in Ukraine.
The Infowars link provides the appearance of documentation:
Exposed: Ukrainian ‘Protesters’ Backed by Kony 2012-Style Scam
As they seize weapons, take over government buildings and fire on media outlets, the US-backed Ukrainian protesters are being afforded legitimacy with the aid of a Kony 2012-style viral video which triumphs the grass roots nature of the demonstrations yet is linked to shadowy NGOs that have been directly involved in staging phony ‘color revolutions’ in the past.
The video, entitled I am a Ukrainian, already has over 3 million views. It features an attractive woman insistently claiming that the Ukrainian uprising is solely about freedom and democracy.
The video is typically glib and simplified emotional propaganda which purports to explain that “there is only one reason” behind the protests in Ukraine, a bald faced lie which ignores the multi-faceted geopolitical factors behind the uprising, which center on the tug of war between the United States, the EU and Russia.
The woman encourages viewers to “help us only by telling this story….only by sharing this video,” thereby framing the debate around the naive narrative that the crisis is solely about Ukrainians wanting “freedom,” and in essence blacklisting the real reasons behind the western-instigated revolt, which focus on the geopolitical isolation of Russia.
The origins of the video are not quite as ‘grass roots’ as is portrayed. The clip was produced by the team behind A Whisper to a Roar, a documentary about the “fight for democracy” all over the world, which was funded by Prince Moulay Hicham of Morocco. The “inspiration” behind the documentary was none other than Larry Diamond, a Council on Foreign Relations member. The Council on Foreign Relations is considered to be America’s “most influential foreign-policy think tank” and has deep connections with the U.S. State Department.
Diamond has also worked closely with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The National Endowment for Democracy is considered to be the CIA’s “civilian arm” and has been deeply embroiled in innumerableinstigated uprisings, attempted coups and acts of neo-colonial regime change since its creation in 1983, including the contrived 2004 “Orange Revolution” that brought US puppet Viktor Yushchenko to power in Ukraine.
Diamond’s connection to the viral “I am a Ukrainian” video clearly suggests that the clip is a crude effort to convince an unthinking public that the Ukrainian uprising is completely organic and is not being instigated by western powers, when the opposite is in fact the case. The clip is reminiscent of the Kony 2012 scam, where a viral video utilized simplified propaganda and emotional manipulation to convince millions of people of the necessity of U.S. military involvement in Africa.
In a Huffington Post interview, the creator of the video admits that he was in Ukraine “preparing a film on democracy” before the protests even started.
Providing absolute confirmation that the video is a carefully thought out public relations stunt, the woman in the video was immediately invited to appear on CNN with Anderson Cooper in a segment that will be broadcast tonight. Cooper and CNN aggressively pushed the Kony 2012 hoax until it fell apart when one of the directors had a public breakdown. Cooper was also heavily involved in promoting the fake “Syria Danny” hoax that relied on staged footage to push for U.S. military intervention in Syria.
The stage was set for the Ukraine revolt to become violent in December when US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe Victoria Nuland announced that the U.S. would invest $5 billion in order to help Ukrainians achieve “a good form of government.” The true nature of that government was revealed earlier this month when leaked phone conversations emerged of Nuland conspiring with US ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt to pick Ukraine’s future puppet leaders, making good on John McCain’s vow to neutralize Russian influence.
Millions of people will never know the truth behind the Ukraine uprising because it is somewhat more complex than an attractive girl making glib statements about freedom and democracy for 2 minutes on a YouTube video. This is how propaganda works – the simpler the better. The video below provides a wider overview of the true agenda behind the crisis.
I have read the links documenting the suppositions of this Infowars article. I have to tell you the used by Paul Joseph Watson are spoon fed from either the Russian propaganda machine or by websites whose background is typically hate-America.
One rings true in the article is that Ukraine’s political situation is complicated. The majority of the nation are native Ukrainian speaking people; however the western part of Ukraine which the news calls Crimea are primarily Russian speaking people. The speaking people exist in Ukraine through years of the former Soviet Union – particularly Stalin – utilizing a Russification campaign which included forbidding the teaching of the Ukraine language and the stamping out of the Eastern Rite but Papacy loyal Ukrainian Church. There are similarities between Ukrainian and Russian languages in that they both are Slavic. The differences lie in influential developments:
Slavic populations living in Eastern Europe are descended from the Indo-European ethnic and linguistic branch. They are classified into 3 groups: the West Slavic including Czechs, Poles, Serbs, Slovaks, the East Slavic comprising Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians and the South Slavic including Bulgarians, Croats, Serbs, Bosniaks, Macedonians, Montenegrins and Slovenes. …
Ukrainian is an East Slavic language using a Cyrillic alphabet and sharing vocabulary with fellow Slavic languages such as Russian, Polish and Slovak. Throughout its turbulent history the Ukrainian people have tried to preserve their linguistic and ethnic identity resisting the coercive means of empires it formed a part of. …
Ukrainian culture is a mixture of Christian principles and Cossack customs highly valued and preserved over the centuries. … Zaporozhian Cossacks had a distinctive influence in shaping Ukrainian identity in areas as folk music, dance, architecture, food and customs. To honor Cossack contribution the Ukrainian Great Coat of Arms features a Zaporozhian Cossack. … Russian culture is a result of a mixture of influences: from pagan tribe customs to Christian beliefs, from Turkish to Scandinavian contributions.
oUkrainian and Russian share the same East Slavic language pool and due to this their vocabularies are quite similar.
oUkrainian culture has a clear Cossack and Christian influences, while Russian culture is a result of native pagan as well as Christian roots mixed with Turkish and Scandinavian influences.
Now I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some money going to the protestors in some fashion BUT it was not to finance snipers to shoot at both corrupt government controlled police and protestors. In one of the sources used by author Watson relates how Putin encouraged currently deposed Yanukovich to use force to disperse the protestors. The reality is after Yanukovich used force and actually began using police brutality and shootings resulted in protestor deaths THEN the more right wing protestors initially shunned by other protest factions welcomed their aid in confronting the (Berkut) police.
A leaked recording has emerged between an Estonian diplomat and an EU diplomat in which a conversation agrees with the Russia Today (RT – Putin Mouthpiece available in English) coverage that both Maidan protesters and Berkut police were shot at by members of the Ukrainian Right Wing to frame ousted President Yanukovich for the deaths. Since indeed the Ukrainian Parliament dumped Yanukovich a lot credence was given to the Russian propaganda and now going viral on the web is the appearance of a non-Russian Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet telling High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Police Catherine Ashton that he heard reports … Blog Editor: You might think this post is long at this point but there is so much more to refute.

Danny Jeffrey utilizes a Liberal drilling of Allen West from 2012 to launch an editorial that is critical of websites that are dubious in presenting valid facts. Danny begins by praising Allen West for defending his position made at a fund raiser which Red Alert Politics writes, “…Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., isn’t backing down from comments he made at a fundraiser two weeks ago calling members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, including former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “communists.” In fact, he’s coming out swinging.” The Allen West thing is what piqued my interest in reading Danny’s essay.
This is what Danny Jeffrey summarizes about the authenticity of these websites:
“…knowing these to be some major hoax sites … but believed to be reliable by oh so many. Another dead give away of sensationalist sites are images that are apparently photoshopped. Still another are claims that are too good to be true, or claims designed to scare the daylights out of you, validated only by anonymous or unverifiable sources.”
I have to confess I have used some of these websites as a resource. That would place me on Danny’s gullible list. But I have to admit I love a good Conspiracy Theory. Knowing that I love Conspiracy Theories I have learned to pick and choose between the plausible and the ridiculous. Unlike Danny I read these websites to discover non-Mainstream Media news, BUT Danny is correct! If you do as I do then do not accept the information found in these websites as truth. Do the research and discover what is real, what is iffy and/or what is a downright hoax printed for sensationalism.
Danny correctly singles out the 911 Truthers as being one of those ridiculous Conspiracy Theories. I am certain if Danny had the time to exposit on other ridiculous Conspiracy Theories he would have, but I think his point is that bloggers need to do their research to verify the information they are using. I would be interested in an exposition of ludicrous Conspiracy Theories from Danny but I sense that would be a long wait because he would consider that a waste of his valuable time in writing about valid issues.
Of late Danny is bringing the somewhat shadowy Leftist George Soros to the light to expose some of his nefarious actions hidden in the darkness. You should do a search on his to blog sites to be filled in on Soros. But don’t stop with Soros. Danny focuses on many issues that will pique your fascination with many things that don’t make it to the light of day except in some of those websites that Danny criticizes.
I encourage you to read his blog posts at his original (but now not updated) Freedom Rings 1776 and (his current blog location) FixBayonets. You will find volumes of informative essays that you mostly agree with but some that might rub you the wrong way (face it disagreement sharpens the mind to bring clarity).
Earlier today a Facebook friend posted a videoof Allen Westbeing grilled by a few liberal reporters. He took the grilling quite well and turned them into toast. Being the polite gentleman that he is, Colonel West did not call either of them an idiot, but proceeded to prove that they were. He simply told them to do their research, and then proved to the nation that he had done his. The topic under debate was his statement that there are a great many communists in Congress operating under the banner of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The initial question was did he have any regrets about his original statement. His answer was no, and then he proved his point, based on his own research, and without the aid of a teleprompter. I love it when these liberals attack him because without fail he shreds them and they succeed only in giving him an opportunity to make his point. Such people should never try to belittle their intellectual superiors. Funny thing about the truth; it is out there, and thanks to the search capabilities of the internet, is available to everyone … if they will but do their research. The sad fact of the matter is that so few are so inclined. Consequently we have millions of frightened Americans stumbling around in an advanced state of confusion, all the time wondering what in the hell is going on, while calling upon fellow Americans to wake up. An old phrase comes to mind: ‘The blind, leading the blind.’
Another very old phrase: ‘Seek and ye shall find.’ Those words are as true today as they were then, but thanks to the internet, the search is much easier and faster than at any time in our history. That being said I must also insert a warning: There has never been any field of endeavor that is immune to the influence of those who are less than truthful, it is therefore up to you to apply judgement (sic) in all that you read and believe. Failing to do so will leave you lost and stumbling about in the fog.
That reality applies to your everyday life, your job, politics, religion, daily news, and most assuredly those who would like to separate you from your hard earned money. It is up to you to separate the truth from deception. Unless you can do this, you are, and will continue to be, the victim of those who promote their agenda instead of the truth.
Recently an internet friend from the UK left a comment in response to one of my essays. His closing thought was
“When I look at the hard work that goes into bringing facts to the public, which the public then ignores, I have trouble understanding why anyone would bother.”
Admittedly it is a lot of hard work, but even were I not writing, the search would go on, for I do not like being lost and confused. The pursuit of knowledge and truth are fundamental to my very nature. Anything less must be rejected. My early days on the internet proved embarrassing on two separate occasions believing what I read without further research. Those days are gone and I have become a hard core skeptic, believing nothing that cannot be validated.
Now when encountering a post left in a group the first thing I do is check the link source. If it comes from Before It’s News, Godlike Productions, Above Top Secret, EU Times, and such, I go no further, knowing these to be some major hoax sites … but believed to be reliable by oh so many. Another dead give away (sic) of sensationalist sites are images that are apparently photoshopped. Still another are claims that are too good to be true, or claims designed to scare the daylights out of you, validated only by anonymous or unverifiable sources. One of the best guides is simply to employ common sense. That term, unfortunately, is almost a contradiction as common sense is none too common, but it never hurts to put forth the effort.
One such example: Look at all of the people who believe the ‘evidence’ that both twin towers fell just like buildings intentionally destroyed by explosives planted on the framework of those buildings. Listen to Alex Jones’s ‘evidence’ and you will believe, but only if you lack the common sense to see through his nonsense. For this theory to be true teams of men would have had to go into a thousand offices, rip out the walls exposing the structural members, planted their explosives, and then replace those walls. Of course such logic never enters the mind of those ‘truthers’ who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the ass; and one day it will.
How many board meetings would have had to have been interrupted; how many corporate president’s (sic) would have had to vacate their office while this sabotage was performed? Alex Jones, his ‘Prison Planet’, and ‘Infowars’, are more sites that I will not click. My time is far too valuable for such nonsense.
However; lies and absurdities are far easier to find than the truth, perhaps indicating why so many are so confused. I use Google, but whatever your search engine the process is the same. Type ‘911 inside job’ into your search window and let the search begin. Google returns page after page of conspiracy theorists and sites, naturally including Alex Jones. Fifteen minutes of fame, royalties on a book, or a daily talk show that caters to the ignorant; that is what it is all about, and gullible Americans line up for their daily dose of misinformation.
I am about to embark on what may seem a lost cause, revealing the true agenda of George Soros. It will not be a lost cause although I am the first to acknowledge that it will be poorly attended, due to an overwhelming lack of interest. Americans really do not want to know, and even most of those who realize that Soros endangers our every liberty do not want to know any more. They are not the audience that I choose to address.
Though few in number there yet remains a scattering of hard core patriots with a burning need to understand what is taking place in our failing society. I shall not attempt to entertain, promote half truths (sic), blatant lies, or show photoshopped images of Soros and Obama. Sensationalism is unbecoming of the truth, and it is the truth that I shall endeavor to present. It is an awful truth that many shy away from, for this man’s agenda reeks of pure evil. He is the most powerful misanthrope this world has ever known, and he hates us all with an equal passion. That hatred is being used to reshape the human race, eliminating a large portion of it in the process.
In an odd way I have come to admire George Soros, evil incarnate though he be. He has a grasp of human nature that few, if any, can equal. This man is one of the wealthiest people in this world and I do not believe him to be greedy. Money to him is but a tool that grants him the power to reshape the world in his image. Though not personally greedy, he well understands the greed that is part of human nature, and that understanding is the part of the power that he wields over us. Greed, laziness, ignorance, and those who seek to dominate. These traits are the Sword of Damocles that he holds over our heads.
In future installments of The World According To Soros I shall put before you the facts concerning this king maker and this man who would re-engineer the human race. His tentacles of power reach far and wide, destroying the economies of nations, leading the weak into revolutions, and wreaking havoc on all that humanity has accomplished. I ask but one thing, the same thing that Allen West suggests … Do your research.
Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.
AN INTRODUCTION TO ‘FIX BAYONETS’
For the sake of long term readers, I must briefly explain my need for a new website:
I have an insurmountable problem with my previous blog that has to do with the ‘feed’. Everything about it works just fine with the exception of it not being able to send Emails to my followers whenever I post a new essay. I have learned what caused the cumulative problem but am still unable to repair it, and so today I turn a new page. Armed with a new knowledge of how to avoid future problems, I am relegatingFreedom Rings 1776to a background archive, totally accessible but no longer serving my needs.
There is also a second reason for what I have begun. My first website was named with a sense of optimism, while this one is from a sense of desperation, for we are most assuredly losing in the political arena. Since Obama was first chosen by the Progressive overlords, we have been subjected to betrayal, deceit, a loss of liberty, and rampant corruption, and as an honest people, we simply do not know how to engage on their terms.
We seek truth while they propagate lies. We hope to engage in honest debate, but the Progressives shun that honesty for it exposes their plan of domination, while liberals turn away choosing not to know the truth. We hear epithets such as ‘Racists’, “Bigots’, ‘War on Women’, and ‘Islamophobia’, while they delude America with feel good platitudes about ‘equality’, ‘fairness’, ‘helping the poor’, and ‘sharing the wealth’; the very things the Founders warned about.
Look at the vicious attacks launched on those such as …READTHE REST
