Best of: The Catastrophic Cost of Complying

AofA Op EdNote: We first ran this post on August 14, 2020. The rabbit hole now reaches to the center of the earth.

By Laura Hayes

I went grocery shopping this past Saturday, first time in 30 days. I find seeing my fellow humans masked, including young children, to be soul-stripping, and I come home angry and depressed. For some reason, I thought I would not be the only unmasked person at this stage of the insanity, but I was wrong. The store was more crowded than I had seen it to date, and yet, I saw no other shopper, or employee, not wearing a mask…nearly 6 months into this global machination.

In the event you haven’t noticed, things are getting worse, not better. And I am not talking about “Covid-19”, whatever that is or isn’t (no way for us to know, as we have been lied to from the get-go). I am talking about the state of our God-given rights, many of which our U.S. Constitution was created to protect, rights that include: the right to breathe freely, minus dangerous impediments; the right to communicate and socialize with others, minus facial covering and physical distancing requirements; the right to move about freely, including frequenting businesses of our choosing, minus finding businesses forcibly closed, and minus absurd shopping and walking around town rules; the right to conduct business, minus being deemed non-essential, minus being restricted in scope and ability to conduct business, and minus being coerced to enforce dangerous and absurd requirements of employees and customers; the right to assemble, minus ridiculous and arbitrary physical distancing and maximum number restrictions, and minus the forced covering of the majority of one’s face; the right to seek medical, dental, and eye care, minus temperature checks, facial masking, and in some cases, Covid-19 testing requirements (with the nasal swab testing causing harm and damage to some of those being tested that way); the right to practice one’s religion, and to congregate and fellowship with others, minus rules and requirements which prevent one from doing so; and the right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness, minus unwarranted, unconstitutional, and unacceptable government interference.

Americans should find it shocking, frightening, and intolerable that acting on our God-given fundamental rights as human beings has now been deemed illegal behavior and can result in being charged with a crime in a growing number of situations and locations. Stop and think about that for a few minutes. That which prior to 2020 were considered basic human rights, including the rights to breathe, smile at others, communicate, entertain, move about, congregate, shop, conduct business, seek care and services, and go to church, have instantaneously been labeled dangerous behaviors if done in a free, unregulated, and unimpeded manner, deemed worthy of fines, ostracization, shaming, social isolation, forced quarantine, closures, lockdowns, lawsuits, and no doubt very soon, prison time and “re-education camps”. Perhaps this is why nearly half of U.S. states have released thousands of prisoners before their sentences were completed, including those who have committed violent crimes…to make room for those who will refuse to comply with rights-stripping, unconstitutional, life-destroying edicts made and enforced by those abusing their positions of power.

In short order, we have been put under mask requirements, physical distancing requirements, quarantining of healthy people, business closures, lockdowns, required testing (or lose your job, or be denied services), contact tracing (how long will it take for literally every American to be put on someone’s list…I predict that could be accomplished in less than 2 weeks), and soon dissenters will be victims of knocks on their doors, removal to quarantine centers and/or re-education camps, forced vaccinations while being held down, and prison time, followed by “suicides” and unexplained deaths.

Our country is being run by a real-life mafia, comprised of a small group who has assumed a powerful form of global authority. These mafia heads have many minions who populate the pharmaceutical industry and government leadership and regulatory positions. These mafia underlings then have their many minions which include elected officials, university and education system officials, the mainstream media, and public health officials. And as of late, this despotic mafia has succeeded in enlisting citizens to “police” one another, both voluntarily and for pay, via snitch lines, social media shaming, contact tracers, informants who report violations, and non-police enforcers of mask wearing and physical distancing.

We are seeing evidence of this mafia, and associated mafia-style consequences, in many places: businesses, schools, and churches being forced to close without having committed any violations; business owners fearful of allowing anyone into their establishments who is not wearing a mask, even when the person meets one of the many “legal” exemptions (given that the requirements themselves are not legal, there is no justification to have to legally exempt oneself), knowing they may face financially devastating fines and/or forced closure; college faculty, staff, and students being required to submit to regular Covid-19 testing, temperature checks, mask wearing, physical distancing, and contact tracing, and for those in the very large UC system, the requirement of an influenza vaccine by 11-1-20 has now been added, with refusal resulting in being fired and being denied enrollment; those needing/wanting surgery are being required to submit to Covid-19 testing, with refusal resulting in no treatment; those needing/wanting medical, dental, or eye care are now being required to submit to temperature checks and masking requirements, with refusal resulting in no service; those frequenting many businesses are being required to “sign in” for future contact tracing purposes, with refusal resulting in being told to leave; all with no viable opt out, even if a “legal” exemption exists, for fear the mafia and its many minions will penalize and/or annihilate persons and businesses not falling into line and enforcing their edicts. 

Today’s “exemptions” will soon be on tomorrow’s “no longer accepted” list. Should you need proof of that, just look at the history of vaccine mandates. The noose on freedom and personal liberties is tightening, and in many areas, has already been cinched. For those who think it is no big deal to comply with the ever-increasing rules, requirements, and mandates, or that it is somehow virtuous, I urge you to reconsider and take a look at where all of this is headed, and what it means for your future, and the future of your children and grandchildren. The progression of increasing, illegal, and unconstitutional requirements has been rapid, and backed by force. It is not going to stop. Next up will be “proof” of Covid-19 status, with required periodic and repeated testing, to enter any public or private business (as though there is even one reliable test, for something that has yet to be clearly identified, for something that has yet to be proven to be contagious, and for something that has yet to be proven to be prevented or halted by mask wearing or physical distancing), mandatory signing in wherever you go for contact tracing purposes, proof of Covid-19 vaccination (with proof of additional vaccines in short order), and in the very near future, the requirement of some type of chipping that can be scanned prior to entering any public or private business or entity, to ensure full compliance with the mafia’s demands. Comply, or be denied…or worse.

It is not wise or virtuous to condone or support that which eliminates the most basic rights of human beings. It is not wise or virtuous to willingly give up our God-given, Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and freedoms, in exchange for tyranny, threats, and torture. It is not wise or virtuous to accept mafia dominance over our lives, the lives of our children and grandchildren, or the lives of others. 

None of what I have written prohibits anyone from doing that which they believe protects their health, or the health of their children. If someone believes that masks are protective, not harmful, prevent the transmission of viruses, and/or believe that they or their children are particularly vulnerable for some reason, they are free to wear a mask. If their mask works as they believe it does, it should not matter to them whether or not anyone else is wearing a mask. The same argument holds true for vaccination. If someone wants to permit a vaccine for themselves or their child, they are free to do so. If they believe that a vaccine is protective for them or their child, it should make no difference to them whether or not anyone else is vaccinated. 

And therein lies the truth…when individuals and parents are free to make their own health-related decisions, that is how and when individuals, children, communities, and society at large thrive. When something is effective, it is continued, or repeated if/when necessary. When something is ineffective, or harmful, it is discontinued, not repeated, and something else may be tried in the future. No one has a more vested and sincere interest in an individual or child being healthy and well than the individual or parent. No one has a better firsthand account of the results of health-related decisions than the individual or parent, and therefore, it is their experiences and their decisions that matter most. No one will be more accountable and personally responsible for individual and parental health-related decisions than the individual and parent, and therefore, such accountability and personal responsibility are the most natural and effective motivators for beneficial and effective decisions to be made, or adjusted as needed, and for harmful and ineffective decisions to be completely avoided, or never repeated.

We do not need elected officials legislating and dictating our health-related decisions, nor do we need public and global health officials pronouncing and enforcing what they deem is and isn’t healthy for us and our families, especially given their terrible track records, their conflicts of interest, and the many lawsuits against and criminal convictions of the companies who bribe, buy, influence, and control them. What we need is health and medical choice freedom, paired with rock-solid parental rights. What we need is the free flow of information so that people can make fully informed decisions. The censorship of anything and everything that challenges or disproves the mafia’s propaganda must be stopped. Perhaps most importantly, we need those who comprise the mafia described above, and their many minions, behind bars.

We need to be the change we want to see. Continued compliance will lead to increasing tyranny. We need to act individually and collectively. Connect with like-minded people in your area and get involved with Dr. Pam Popper’s “Make Americans Free Again” and Peggy Hall’s “The Healthy American”. Become a member of the Weston A Price Foundation, which provides excellent health-related information as well as action items related to protecting and regaining rights and freedoms. 

Refusing to comply today is the path to regaining our rights and freedoms tomorrow.

Laura Hayes writes and speaks about the importance of healthcare/medical choice freedom and parental rights. She has been outspoken for many years regarding the urgent need to immediately: ban vaccine mandates; enact a moratorium on each and every vaccine, as not one has been tested or approved properly or ethically; repeal the 1986 Act; and fully restore individual and parental rights with regard to healthcare and medical decision making.

@David | August 13, 2021 at 07:07 AM

Did some more digging.

It appears that at least one of the first SARS-CoV-2 isolate from an infected person was produced by Chinese researchers. They were affiliated with the Department of Clinical Laboratory, the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, China and Key Laboratory of Anti-Inflammatory and Immune Medicine, Ministry of Education, Anhui Collaborative Innovation Center of Anti-inflammatory and Immune Medicine, Institute of Clinical Pharmacology, Anhui Medical University, Shushan district, Hefei, Anhui, China. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32333222/

According to the abstract, "Airway epithelial cells from infected patients were used to isolate a novel coronavirus, named the SARS-CoV-2, on January 12, 2020... Phylogenetic analysis of full-length genome sequences obtained from infected patients showed that SARS-CoV-2 is similar to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and uses the same cell entry receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), as SARS-CoV." https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32333222/

Unfortunately, I cannot access beyond the Abstract. It DOES NOT describe culturing and injecting the isolated whole virus into a lab animal to prove that this nose specimen was indeed responsible for Covid 19 infection. If not, how did they know this virus is "novel" and that it actually caused disease? What other viruses/bacteria did they see in the sample? Were they ruled out? Most importantly, was this patient isolate sent to the CDC to use as a basis for their original PCR test? Where is the PAPER TRAIL for this? HAS THIS BEEN FOIA REQUESTED? Has the U.S. done its own live virus isolate with animal testing to produce Covid 19? Did we just take China's word for it?
NOTICE the isolation date of January 12, 2020.
The article was originally published on Epub 2020 Apr 24.

Next, we have this article published in J Korean Med Sci. 2020 Feb 24:
"Virus Isolation from the First Patient with SARS-CoV-2 in Korea"
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32080990/

In the Abstract they claim the outbreak started in Wuhan in December 2019.
"We isolated SARS-CoV-2 from the oropharyngeal sample obtained from the patient with the first laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection in Korea. Cytopathic effects of SARS-CoV-2 in the Vero cell cultures were confluent 3 days after the first blind passage of the sample. Coronavirus was confirmed with spherical particle having a fringe reminiscent of crown on transmission electron microscopy. "

The samples were taken from the throat area and were grown in a Vero cell culture (monkey or human?) and replicated, destroying cells. If injected into a live animal would it cause Covid 19?

So it appears that a virus named SARS-CoV-2 has been associated with sick patients. But so far, no live animal with reproduced symptoms are described in the reports.

Then, I found this:
"Syrian hamsters as a small animal model for SARS-CoV-2 infection and countermeasure development"
https://www.pnas.org/content/117/28/16587
It was Edited by Robert L. Coffman, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA, and approved June 12, 2020 (received for review May 15, 2020) First published June 22, 2020.

Finally, we have an animal (hamster) injected with SARS-CoV-2 isolates:
"These authors evaluated the pathogenicity and tissue tropism of SARS-CoV-2 isolates in hamsters after intranasal infection, and found that the virus replicated efficiently in the respiratory tract. They determined the infectious titer of the virus in only the nasal turbinates and lungs and did not examine the dissemination of SARS-CoV-2 isolates following intranasal inoculation, which therefore remains largely unknown."

My question: What is the SOURCE of the SARS-CoV-2 isolates?
Answer: "To characterize the new viruses, we examined the biological properties of two SARS-CoV-2 isolates: SARS-CoV-2/UT-NCGM02/Human/2020/Tokyo (UT-NCGM02) and SARS-CoV-2/UW-001/Human/2020/Wisconsin (UW-001), which were both isolated from mild cases."
Researchers listed on this paper were from Tokyo and Wisconsin.

The main reason for the research was to find an appropriate animal MODEL for VACCINE/DRUG research. Please read the paper. It is detailed in how they go about it. They are very capable of using a live animal to see if a live virus isolate can cause disease. Where was the ORIGINAL animal model experiment done to prove SARS-CoV-2 is the culprit?

One more piece of the puzzle:
NIH study offers new evidence of early SARS-CoV-2 infections in U.S.
Tuesday, June 15, 2021
"In the All of Us study, researchers analyzed more than 24,000 stored blood samples contributed by program participants across all 50 states between Jan. 2 and March 18, 2020. Researchers detected antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 using two different serology tests in nine participants’ samples. These participants were from outside the major urban hotspots of Seattle and New York City, believed to be key points of entry of the virus in the U.S. The positive samples came as early as Jan. 7 from participants in Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and WISCONSIN (emph. mine). "

AND FINALLY...

"Gemma O Doherty has posted an update August 8, 2021 at her website, indicating in a headline and in her video from November 2020 re-posted there that the Irish Government is still not able, 8 months later, to produce proof of existence of an isolated SARS-COV-2 Virus–thereby invalidating the entire “Pandemic” based on this so-called not-proved-to-exist virus, and the entire Vaccine, which is experimental, not based on an actual isolated virus, never tested fully in animals, and is causing Deaths and serious illness: Eight Months On, The Government Is Still Unable To Produce ANY Scientific Proof That Covid Virus Exists ."

"a United Kingdom citizen who recently requested information under Freedom of Information laws has been provided a response from the UK Department of Health and Social Care to the effect that “no information exists regarding the isolation of the SARS-COV-2 virus,” "

Read the comments. WOW!

Well Emma; As far as your last post.

I have been looking around at cyborgs and the like after watching Del Bigtree's latest "Sea of Lies" and the interview with Catharine Austin Fitts.

Del Bigtree has come to the same point in the road on this journey that we all here on the "Age of Autism" have come to. if you read all the comments and even some of the articles you see that Maybe many came to no conclusion , but a definite stop, and ponder on the idea that it is some master plan of depopulation - on purpose.

I found and listened to some of the other videos of what Ms. Austin Fitts has to say.

She talked of cyborgs, nano what ever, and the work of of some man I have never heard of" Charles Feynman and his work on nanoparticles. Which "Age of Autism" and commenters on here have delved into. When they did, I am sorry to say; I scoffed. Keep in mind that I scoffed at electromagnetic waves, and chem trails. Dying of brain cancer though, dose seem to rather common of big wigs dying in Washingto D.C. that were the first to have cell phones and used them a lot. As far as chemtrails

I had that moment too when I found out that Gates was really caulk dusting the skies, or planned to (yeah right!) . As I scoffed I even looked up at the skies at times and thought, Wow that is a lot of air traffic coming in all directions, for around this little part of the world; and boy, oh boy, those vapor trails really bloomed big this evening! Yeah I have seen plenty checkering my own sky, but dismissed it like any normal thinking, honest, trusting human being would. Like I did 40 years ago that vaccines are just a weakened or dead microbe, and nothing else; get the vaccine.

There are some rich, but very sick people -- mentally that is. Wow! What can you do with limitless funds to serve your interest and hobbies?

I just wanted a green house or sunroom myself. With limitless funds I would be the next "Park Seed" , or "Bonnie" . I must lack imagination?

Anyway I looked a little around a bit, I have taught physics; ; so I know a little bit when it comes to talking all about spinning electrons, up and down. I ran into that. It never occurred to me that they were trying to build things that small, and make electrons behave for them, to put them in places that they would not normally go, and spin it in the way they wanted it to spin, or to build their own atoms. The very idea?

I have to think though that for my family it is all about the electron transfer system that is messed up in the mitochondrial disorder . The same for the Poling family that won their case in front of the vaccine court, and so very kind of them to stand up to this court and tell them that this would not remain a secret.

So that said: I went to the politically, often lying reputation ruining : wiki.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanorobotics

Under Manufacturing Approaches

it says: "Manufacturing nanomachines assembled from molecular components is a very challenging

I Bet, enough that I scoffed! I got to stop scoffing at stuff.

Then they listed 8 ways of manufacturing nanorobots.

Nano robots? What! Science fiction?

Two of them are bacteria based and viral based.

Viral based: Again I quote: "Virus-based​[edit]

Retroviruses can be retrained to attach to cells and replace DNA. They go through a process called reverse transcription to deliver genetic packaging in a vector.[59] Usually, these devices are Pol – Gag genes of the virus for the Capsid and Delivery system. This process is called retroviral gene therapy, having the ability to re-engineer cellular DNA by usage of viral vectors.[60] This approach has appeared in the form of retroviral, adenoviral, and lentiviral gene delivery systems.[61][62] These gene therapy vectors have been used in cats to send genes into the genetically modified organism (GMO), causing it to display the trait. [63"


Well don't that sound like our corona 19 vaccine?

Displaying a trait. They have done this on cats and the cats displayed a trait. What was the trait they got the cat to display?

Meanwhile there are five million less whites according to the census.
Where did they go?
Old age was some evil and stupid writers take on it -- and the United States is becoming more diverse.

Except did not these white go forth and multiple? If not why not.

I have only to look in the newspapers once a week and see the obituaries of young = reproduction age - people - dead of an over dose.

Powerful 5-minute testimony from a 25-year Honolulu fire captain who will soon be fired for refusing to be injected, along with other first responders:

https://www.bitchute.com/video/Dql0y0G2EBXw/?fbclid=IwAR2lbJE3aZwZNQ6WxpRqF6jV0skFup0cQuHkW7kGkXFcxUbwXU4wZIRGWII

"Supernatant definition is - the usually clear liquid overlying material deposited by settling, precipitation, or centrifugation."

The research paper stated:
"Electron
microscopy of the supernatant confirmed the presence of virus
PARTICLES (emph. mine) with morphology characteristic of viruses of the family
Coronaviridae." They didn't have an intact virus. To be accurate, the PCR test they initially used would have to be based on an intact virus taken from someone sick with Covid which could produce the same symptoms when injected in a lab animal. The initial PCR test was created and EXCLUSIVELY controlled by the U.S. CDC at that time. That test was based on a DIGITAL sequence. The actual scientific evidence that SARS Cov2 causes Covid 19 has never been produced. Rand Paul has been presenting compelling evidence that SARS Cov2 is the result of gain of function experiments conducted at the Wuhan L4 lab. If true, it would make sense that they would not want the world's scientists to have the ACUAL virus and its sequence. I am not saying that a virus isn't the cause, just that the government has never given scientific evidence for it to the public. I already posted a link about a Canadian who was charged with a fine by his local government for not wearing a mask. He contested it and asked the government to produce compelling evidence that not wearing a mask was a threat to the health of others. He asked them for evidence that SARS Cov2 caused Covid 19. They couldn't produce it.

PCR creator Kary Mullis always contended that HIV virus had never been proven to cause AIDS. The PCR test was used to make that connection, using only fragments collected from a patient. Until his death, Mullis strongly opposed Fauci's use of PCR to diagnose AIDS and claimed it was never designed for medical diagnosis, but could only amplify very small amounts of DNA molecules for bio research.

If a patient was sick enough to die from Covid 19, body fluids and lung tissue samples should be FULL of whole virus. They should have no problem isolating them and creating a culture that could be injected into a lab animal. Just taking a nose swab is like trying to look in the wrong direction. The nose is the first line of defense to keep things OUT of the body. All manner of things could be trapped there. It doesn't mean they ever entered the body and caused infection.

Don't forget the research that found that the L1 part of the SARS Cov2 spike protein ALONE could cause Covid 19 symptoms. Of course, that is the ONE part of the entire SARS Cov2 virus they chose to isolate for mRNA vaccine production. Chew on that. Covid 19 vaccinated humans are now churning out spike proteins (which can shed). Could the jab be the source of the "Delta" variant? Where is the science to show that they have isolated the "variant?" This whole matter is either incompetency of the highest degree or deliberate.

TOB

Emma, I don't think PCR is completely worthless; it's just being misused as a test for whether an asymptomatic person should be considered sick or called a "case" of coronavirus.

It appears, from the excerpt you quoted, that PCR was used to identify the presence of viral material; the person's snot was then used to grow the virus in culture. I guess they didn't rub the snot on an animal and make him sick, but I think what they grew in the Vero cells is still considered an isolate.

Also, I'm unaware of any court proceeding about the existence of isolates of coronavirus. I've seen people post that FOIA requests did not receive a response, but FOIA is very different from a court proceeding.

I think David's point is an important one: A virus can exist without justifying the type of reaction most governments have had to coronavirus. I believe that H1N1 flu exists, but I don't think we should close schools, destroy businesses, funnel billions into vaccines and vaccine-ish things, and force everyone to wear a mask until it magically disappears from the face of the planet.

@David

OOPS!
They used the good 'ole PCR test to identify "virus particles."

": A nasopharyngeal swab and sputum collected when the
patient presented to hospital were each positive for SARS-CoV-2
(reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction). Inoculation
of Vero/hSLAM cells with material from the nasopharyngeal
swab led to the isolation of SARS-CoV-2 virus in culture. Electron
microscopy of the supernatant confirmed the presence of virus
particles with morphology characteristic of viruses of the family
Coronaviridae. Whole genome sequencing of the viral isolate and
phylogenetic analysis indicated the isolate exhibited greater than
99.99% sequence identity with other publicly available SARSCoV-2 genomes. Within 24 hours of isolation, the first Australian
SARS-CoV-2 isolate was shared with local and overseas reference
laboratories and major North American and European culture
collections."
https://www.mja.com.au/system/files/issues/212_10/mja250569.pdf

A live virus was not isolated, cultured, and injected into mice (or other lab animal) to reproduce the Covid 19 symptoms.
FAIL

Again, the government was unable to present this kind of evidence in a court of law.

David

I know a lot of people say that this virus has not been isolated but I think that the evidence is pretty powerful that it has. Below is the title of the article written in Australia in Feb 2020. I have a degree in biochem and it looks legit to me.
I am a vaccine skeptic and this covid nonsense is the greatest over reaction of all time but you have to be really careful about saying things like "the virus has not been isolated".

Jill; In the state of Indiana I think.

A good book for you to check out, Bill, is Seamus Hasson's *The Right to Be Wrong.* Hasson makes a nice distinction between religion and "theism," which is the belief that a higher power exists and has endowed human beings with rights. The Founding Fathers were theists; they believed that the Constitution did not *give* people rights, but attested to the fact that an almighty Being did. I can't do justice to the book in a couple of paragraphs, but I do hope you'll check it out.

I don't think these times are like Nazi Germany. They're more like Poland in 1953 or Czechoslovakia in 1970. Mandates, threats, surveillance, informers, people walking around dead inside. Rules for thee, but not for me. Refusal of media to cover inconvenient stories, gaslighting of whistleblowers, and "explainers" in the press about why we all have to believe the press releases of a few large corporations.

The gentleman from Mount Vernon speaks the truth ! thank you


“The great corporations which we have grown to speak of rather loosely as trusts are the creatures of the State, and the State not only has the right to control them, but it is duty bound to control them wherever the need of such control is shown.”

― Theodore Roosevelt

I wonder if we could get a copy of the flash drive that this doctor was giving to the Board.

@Benedetta:

THANK YOU so very much for posting that video of the physician speaking before the Mt. Vernon Health Board.

I just finished watching and am begging my husband to view it.

It's fantastic.

Bill,
I understand your indignation at the frequent referral to a supreme being since our government is supposed to be secular and not based on a religion. We want our government scientists and political figures to base their decisions on data rather than religion, all the while keeping freedom of religion in mind. But his is not the government you are reading, and these times are incredibly unique. Scientists, lawyers, and other empowered people who are seeing the power struggle we are facing with this Covid narrative seem to be describing this battle in terms of good vs. evil or spirituality. Many of these people are not religious at all (many scientists are not). Still they think that spirituality will play a big role in determining whether we continue with our current system of government or give in to The Great Reset idea where we live in a technocracy (many of us as useless eaters). Spirituality is not necessarily religion, and dividing the extremes of the people on earth as good or evil in this case may be warranted. I think that all great movements involve spirituality. Some in the movement will be religious and some will be secular with an increased sense of spirituality. That's why you see so much reference to God in the Constitution. Many of the founders were not religious, but they understood the spirituality involved in the occasion. I have not read The Great Reset, but understand from others who have read it, that it cemented their understanding that there is an evil purpose in this Covid narrative that goes far beyond the disease. Please don't try to shame people for espousing the religious type of spirituality rather than the secular type of spirituality. Our world needs every bit of empathy and compassion we can drudge up, and dividing us in terms of religious or not religious will only hurt our chances of avoiding becoming useless eaters.

Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves. The self-righteousness of the mask wearing, vaccine getting, etc. makes me want to throw up. I keep praying that it is darkest before the light.

Bill, Ms Rossi did not write it.
Laura Hayes put her name on it, right up there near the top. After the title.

Meanwhile after a long back and forth on the science studies with my cousin, some friend of hers comes on and says it is not a personal right on deciding to wear a mask.

Hummmm; it is not a personal right for you to decide whether or not to wear something over two very important offices of your body that involves life and death.

Wow! .

NO FOIA request has turned up an isolated Sars Cov2 virus obtained from someone sick with Covid 19 (the disease). This is a requirement to develop a diagnostic test.

"God given rights"? You mean the U.s Constitution!

The philosophical/religious thesis of the foundation of our American government is contained in the Declaration of Independence. It is the fundamental framework on which the U.S. Constitution rests.

from THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
"...and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript

Some of the Founding Fathers signed both the Declaration and the Constitution. Some who signed one document had relatives who signed the other. Some were publicly members of the Christian Church of England and had been educated at Cambridge. Some of these individuals were my ancestors.

Thanks to the First amendment, you are certainly within your rights to express your disdain for "fundamentalist Christians." However, other countries might not tolerate such an affront to their official religious beliefs.....Off with your head!

God bless you!
God bless America!

@ Bill:
"These laws and rules are just a run of the mill government over-reaction to public health emergencies."
This isn't "run of the mill government," this was/is a coordinated attack from the top down. That was obvious from day one of the "pandemic" when every single news source around the globe said exactly the same thing at the same time 24/7. That takes time, money and extreme influence to accomplish such a goal. Who has that kind of control? Big Pharma, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, the WHO, Dr. Anthony Fauci... etc. The same medical mafia that that Ms. Hayes describes who were in place years ago pushing this agenda. When you look at any major shift in policy - "terrorism" comes to mind - you again see enormous amounts of propaganda floating through the MSM to influence public opinion. And when an "event" occurs that highly influences policy change, the excuse is that gov't is inept and bumbling and they didn't see the problem coming etc. Now they need more money and power to fight the new threat to security / health / human rights etc. And scapegoats need to be presented. "Fundamentalist Christian rhetoric" was immediately singled out as being an impedance to solving the Covid crisis. Christians were subsequently discriminated against on a major scale by way of lawless government intervention and mass propagandizing. You should be ashamed that you cannot understand what Ms. Hayes wrote in that letter a year ago, and how insightful and truthful her observations were.

Bob Moffit

Laura .. your words could just as well been written by GEORGE ORWELL in "1984" … as an advancing senior citizen I am ashamed of the county I love having changed so much that I no longer recognize it … recently I read of some professor of Balor University proposed making any criticism of FAUCI A HATE CRIME .. and .. this idiotic idea was immediately supported by a leading "scientific journal".

We are living in a world gone mad .. and it is global madness .. thousands in France, Australia, UK, etc .. have taken to the streets in massive protest against all that Laura has written of … yet .. these countries are determined to dismiss, ignore or otherwise defy the will of their citizens.

Imagine CRITICIZING FAUCI A HATE CRIME .. MADDNESS.

Ms Rossi

Oh for God’s sake.....

Bill

"God given rights"? You mean the U.s Constitution! Mrs. Rossi or which ever editor wrote this if you want people to support you and Age of Autism please stop the fundamentalist Christian rhetoric. I hate extreme vaccine mandate but this is not Nazi Germany. These laws and rules are just a run of the mill government over-reaction to public health emergencies. Both of the political parties are trying to ban the Beijing Olympics for differing reasons but the are silent about Japan hiding Covid-19 deaths and the over all risk of contracting the infection related to the Olympics in Tokyo. The Fukushima Daichi nuclear meltdown is another risk, yet both parties are making exaggerated claims about "Genocide" in Xizang aka Tibet and Xinjiang aka East Turkmenistan.

David S Weiner

Amen. Individuals and parents need the freedom to decide about their use of both State-approved responses and non State-approved responses to Covid and every other (alleged) threat to our health.

Longer term, we should have no State involvement in these matters altogether. No risk assessment, no promotion of remedies, no denouncing of other remedies, no corralling of institutions, etc. Just a free people operating in a free market deciding how best to operate under whatever circumstances they find themselves.

And the rule of law operating to hold accountable those who attempt to use fraud and/or coercion to advance their goals.
