“Governments love crises because when the people are fearful, they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security,” wrote former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul.
Paul’s statement was in a piece entitled “The Coronavirus Hoax” published on March 16 of 2020, just as the COVID-19 tyranny was beginning. While Americans across the nation stupidly and passively complied with government dictates, Paul knew the two weeks to slow the spread farce would turn into a permanent all-out assault on our personal liberties.
How did we get to this point? Just look at the headlines from some of the fine corporate propaganda media, and you might find the clue.
Still to this day, as we now are nearing two years to slow the spread, the media is trafficking in daily virus counts. I just took a look at a few Wyoming papers for the week and found headlines like this: “Daily Wyoming coronavirus update.”
Another newspaper had this story: “LCSD1 reports 61 positive COVID-19 test results in past week.” Yet another had this headline, “Active coronavirus cases in Wyoming up by 49,” and the same outlet just a few hours later added another story: “Active COVID case count falls below 3,000 to end week.”
Never mind the fact that you cannot trust any of the numbers that have been produced throughout this scam; from fraudulent PCR tests to hospitals financially incentivized to find COVID cases to the CDC annually admitting it can’t accurately track flu cases let alone a new “novel” virus, etc.; the whole daily update of numbers was always a tool of propaganda. From the Fox News’ and CNN’s of the world right down to your local outlets, the media has colluded to keep you trapped in fear.
And the results of this fear campaign has led to the complete destruction of our rights, case in point is what’s happening in schools. The Wyoming News has published a series of stories in recent days regarding a federal lawsuit brought by parents against Gov. Mark Gordon, health officials and school districts. We’ve gotten to the point where a 16-year-old girl, Grace Smith, could actually be handcuffed and hauled to jail for simply not wearing a face mask. And the “police” involved in that arrest disgracefully had no compunctions just following orders.
Fueling the fire is a complete lack of principles, which is exhibited by both the left and right. Just recently, the GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement saying “Joe Biden failed to do his job to shut down the virus.” Newsflash Ronna, the president’s job has never had anything to do with stopping any virus. The job of the government is to protect our liberties, nothing more and nothing less.
This lack of principles is why we get into endless arguments over the data and people bickering “my study says this,” “well, my study says that.” I don’t need any study or any data to say the government doesn’t have authority to shut us down. It doesn’t have authority to wear cloth over my face. It doesn’t have authority to make me submit to medical experimentation.
Make no mistake, throughout all of this the actions of the government and their Wall Street buddies have always been about power, control and greed. They have never cared about your health.
“People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus ‘pandemic’ could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic,” Paul wrote. Paul added: “That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.”
