Free Speech is the Victim when Colleges Prioritize Fake Diversity over Education (Video)

Free Speech is the Victim when Colleges Prioritize Fake Diversity over EducationThe episode at Stanford didn’t make it into Politico’s reporting about DEI becoming the latest inflection point in the culture wars.By: Tristan JusticeMarch 20, 2023: eftists love democracy until they’re asked to entertain free speech.Politico published a story on Sunday labeling diversity programs “the new Red Scare for red states.”The paper outlined a cascade of legislation emanating from Republican-led assemblies that aim to eliminate so-called “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) initiatives as the Supreme Court prepares to deliver a decision on affirmative action. Oral arguments last fall signaled the nine-member bench will likely declare race-based admissions unconstitutional.“To save free speech on college campuses, Republican lawmakers and governors say it’s time to stop talking about diversity, equity and inclusion,” Politico reported. The magazine summed up the movement as an effort to “temper difficult conversations about race in the classroom.”What Politico didn’t mention was an episode at Stanford University just 10 days prior, which offers a case study in how DEI mania routinely suppresses dissident speech.At a lecture organized by the school’s Federalist Society, Fifth Circuit Judge Kyle Duncan was heckled by left-wing law students while university administrators not only refused to step in but joined the chorus. Tirien Steinbach, the law school’s diversity dean, took the podium over from Duncan to deride the Trump-appointed judge for engaging in speech “that feels abhorrent, that feels harmful, that literally denies the humanity of people.” Steinbach didn’t admonish the students — who are ostensibly at a top-tier law school to learn how to engage with ideas in argument — for shouting down the invited speaker. Instead, Steinbach asked Judge Duncan whether “the juice is worth the squeeze.”“Do you have something so incredible and important to say about Twitter, and guns, and Covid that that is worth the division of these people?” Steinbach said.Additional video from the lecture published by Fox News last week showed Steinbach smirking in the crowd as students heckled Judge Duncan.The speech from the school’s diversity dean was not spontaneous. Steinbach showed up to the event with prepared remarks.“Numerous senators, advocacy groups, think tanks, and judicial accountability groups,” she said, opposed the judge’s nomination because of his prior work “regarding marriage equality, and transgender, voting, reproductive, and immigrants’ rights.”Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Law School Dean Jenny Martinez both apologized to Judge Duncan for the disruption of the event. The following Monday, the university’s left-wing students directed their fury at Martinez over the apology. The university also offered students in the law school’s chapter of the Federalist Society counseling from the same administrators who shut down their guest lecture. Students who had their event stifled were asked to refrain from tweeting about the disruption “until this news cycle winds down.”“The Stanford blowup shows how the culture of DEI, and especially its accumulation of power in the bureaucracy, has become a threat to free speech,” wrote the Wall Street Journal editorial board on Friday. “Rather than promoting diversity, DEI officers enforce ideological conformity.”Not only has the proliferation of DEI administrations radicalized a generation of students who make their way into corporate boardrooms and legacy newsrooms, but it’s also coincided with spikes in tuition while academics take a backseat.“Jay Greene of the Heritage Foundation reports that the average major university now has 45 DEI personnel,” the Wall Street Journal editorial board noted. “The University of Michigan has 163 DEI officers. Ohio State and the University of Virginia each have 94. Georgia Tech has 41 DEI personnel but only 13 history professors.”Related Article: The Stanford Free Speech Debacle Is Another Reason Universities Need to Fire 99.9% of Their AdministratorsStanford University had 80 diversity personnel on staff for just more than 17,000 students in 2021, according to the Heritage Foundation. A Fox News review of the salaries of top DEI administrators at universities found they earn six-figure compensation packages that are far beyond the average pay for full-time professors.The cost of college, meanwhile, has gone up more than 143 percent from 1963 to 2020.But none of this — neither the episode at Stanford nor the astronomical pay pocketed by diversity administrators — made it into Politico’s reporting about DEI becoming the latest inflection point in the culture wars.Republicans here aren’t even the aggressors, contrary to the magazine’s headline accusing conservatives of igniting a modern-day “Red Scare.” In reality, that would be the DEI administrators implementing a curriculum of mandated groupthink.Source: The Federalist Tristan Justice is the western correspondent for The Federalist and the author of Social Justice Redux, a conservative newsletter on culture, health, and wellness.

Epidemic of Sudden Adult Deaths is Finally in the News as Vaccine Adverse Injuries Permeate Society

Epidemic of Sudden Adult Deaths Finally Made NewsBy: Joseph Mercola

March 20, 2023: Insurance industry research from 2016 showed that group life policyholders are considerably healthier than the general U.S. population. They tend to be younger, well-educated, and employed with Fortune 500 companies. So, what happened in 2021 to turn the tables so dramatically?Video Link – Carlson & Dowd
Story at-a-GlanceFormer BlackRock fund manager Edward Dowd is bringing attention to the surge in deaths and disability that has occurred since the COVID-19 shot campaign rolled out.Group life policyholders, who are typically healthier than the general population, experienced mortality spikes of 40 percent in 2021Disability numbers among the workforce reached a high of 33.2 million in September 2022, with numbers still trending up—a highly unusual increase.Central banks, pharmaceutical companies, Big Tech, and the media all benefited from the pandemic and have an interest in covering up what Dowd describes as a “large global murder scene.”Dowd believes there’s enough alarming data to warrant the COVID-19 shot program being stopped immediately, as the death and disability from the shots could easily exceed that from COVID-19.Former BlackRock analyst and fund manager Edward Dowd is one of the brave few who have been trying to get the word out about the dangers of COVID-19 shots. While I’ve interviewed him twice—once about the mathematical certainty of a financial collapse and a second time about his book, “Cause Unknown: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 and 2022,“—his information is finally getting mainstream media attention.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson, he explains that media outlets like Yahoo have picked up on the undeniable increase in deaths among young, healthy adults. However, they’re quick to state that such deaths are not due to COVID-19 shots.1 But Dowd isn’t deterred. As A Midwestern Doctor noted on Substack:2
“Ed Dowd has focused on utilizing a narrower set of evidence and tying it to one of the most persuasive arguments currently available for shifting the narrative. A statistically impossible spike in sudden deaths has occurred in the healthiest segment of the population and has happened in tandem with a spike in disability (this is why we are now having labor shortages).”
Dowd is intent on bringing global attention to this surge in deaths and disability that has occurred since the COVID-19 shot campaign rolled out, and he’s not willing to let anyone, or any entity, stop him. “We have the data. We have the evidence,” he says, “and there’s a large global murder scene that just occurred.”3
Insurance Company Data Reveal 40 Percent Death Surge
“Cause Unknown” details data showing the shots are a crime against humanity. Some of that data comes from private insurance companies, which love to sell group life insurance policies to large Fortune 500 corporations and mid-sized companies because they hardly ever have to pay out on a claim.
Workers at these corporations tend to be in good health, with industry data suggesting the group life policyholders have one-third the mortality rate of the general U.S. population. The death rates have historically been highly predictable among this group—until 2021. A report released by the Society of Actuaries4 found mortality spikes of 40 percent or more that year.
Insurance companies had sizable increases in payouts for death and disability. Dowd tweeted Feb. 1, 2022, that financial insurance company Unum reported a significant increase in their benefit ratio (payouts versus premiums) in their life segment. Dowd tweeted:5
“In 2021 they saw a 17.4% increase vs 2020. This is higher than the 13.3% increase vs 2019. So the higher payouts in 21 are occurring with a miracle vaccine & less virulent strains … In 2019 the unit had $266 million profit, last year a profit of $82 million & this year a loss of -$192 million. A swing of $458 million lower over 2 years. Important to remember these are employed working age folks.”
Dowd also reported data from funeral homes, including the company Carriage Services, which was flooded with business. He tweeted:6
“Business has been quite good since the introduction of the vaccines & the stock was up 106% in 2021. Curious no? Guys this is shocking as 89% of Funeral homes are private in US. We are seeing the tip of the iceberg.”
Steve Kirsch also published data on Substack7 showing that, among the COVID-jabbed aged 65 and younger, sudden death was the No. 1 cause of death in 2021 and 2022. The second was cardiac-related death and cancer was third. Importantly, the incidence of turbo-charged cancer among the jabbed was significant in this group, and myocarditis killed more than COVID-19.
In addition to sudden deaths, cardiac issues became a major cause of death in vaccinated young people under the age of 65. No myocarditis deaths were seen among unvaxxed people in the same age group.
Disability Numbers Skyrocket
Dowd also looked into the number of disabled people in the United States, using high-frequency data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The agency uses a monthly telephone survey that asks, “Are you or someone in your home disabled and not able to work?” Prior to COVID-19 shots, Dowd said, there were 29 million to 30 million disabled people on an absolute basis, a rate that remained steady for four or five years.
In February 2021, a trend change occurred, reaching a high of 33.2 million in September 2022, with numbers still trending up. That’s a three standard deviation rate of change since May 2021, which means that the chance of this happening is 0.03 percent—highly unusual.
Dowd explains, “Of the 3.2 million newly disabled Americans, 1.7 were employed but came from the employed population of the country.” This is significant, he says, because:8
“The employed people of this country are, generally speaking, by the very fact that they wake up in the morning, get in their car and drive to work, healthier than the general U.S. population.
“By the very nature of doing work, you’re healthier. And that’s a fact that’s never been challenged before. The health outcome for the employed has been disastrous. Since February 2021, their disability rate is up 31 percent … the general U.S. population’s disability rate is up 9 percent.”
Dowd believes this jump in disability among the workforce is the reason why there’s a labor shortage and you’re seeing “help wanted” signs much more than in the past. He also observed an interesting trend among people who quit or left the workforce during this time period—their disability rate didn’t jump like those still working, many of whom were likely subjected to shot mandates to keep their jobs:9
“More importantly, those not in the labor force—those who quit or got fired—their disability rate is only up 4 percent. And I suspect those are the people who either didn’t take the vaccine and were fired or quit and refused to take the vaccine. So those of us who have had the best health outcomes in the country since [COVID-19] vaccination began are those not in the labor force.”
‘There’s a Coverup’
Mass COVID-19 shots and mandates are the only factors that changed during that time that would make being employed a risk to your health, but the government isn’t investigating them. Why? “There’s a coverup, at the very least,” Dowd says, adding:10
“I don’t know that they’re protecting Pfizer, per se. They’re protecting all sorts of monied interests. When this COVID thing happened, there were a lot of beneficiaries from it. Central banks got off the hook from, what I saw, was a global slowdown, so they were able to print unprecedented amounts of money to cover up what we’re going to have eventually, a global sovereign debt default—it’s coming. So they got off the hook.
“You had the tech companies excited, licking their chops, for the new surveillance economy. They knew that was coming. So, they joyfully entered into partnership with the government to censor any dissent. And they were excited about those future cashflows of surveillance.
“Then you have the pharma companies who were going to be able to make money off of, what they saw, were unlimited vaccines, quarterly injections, that was the plan at the time … under the color of law. And then you have the media companies who were getting cashflows from pharmaceutical companies and also the government.
“We found out the government paid media companies to promote the vaccine … momentum built and there was a conspiracy of interests. Now that the vaccine is coming to light that it’s causing death and injury, they all have an interest to keep this thing under wraps.”
The More Vaxxed the Country, the Higher the Excess Deaths
Dowd believes the effects of COVID-19 shots appear to be cumulative, so he urges those who’ve already been injected to stop getting boosters. He also feels there’s enough alarming data to warrant the COVID-19 shot program being stopped immediately, as the death and disability from the shots could easily exceed that from COVID-19.
“This is the greatest crime scene I’ve ever seen in my life,” he says. “The greatest humanitarian toll we’re ever going to talk about. And it’s going to last with us for years to come. The economic ramifications are stark.”11
Dowd and colleagues have been tracking what they call Humanity Projects at their website, Phinance Technologies.12 There, you can see the data they’re tracking along with their related analyses. They state:
“We live in a world where regulatory institutions are captured by financial and political interests, either unwilling or unable to get to the truth of the issues they set out to investigate and regulate on behalf of the individuals in society.
“Without unbiased and comprehensive research, there is a risk of misguided policy decisions at best, and at worst, negligence and malpractice. Never has this been more apparent than during the Covid-19 pandemic. In this context, we need independent agents to act as gatekeepers of the public interest. We intend to be such agents, and to provide high-quality research to other individuals and institutions who seek similar outcomes.”
One trend they’ve found is that the more vaccinated the country, the higher the excess mortality. Denmark, which is one of the most highly vaccinated, stands out. “They had an interesting experience,” Dowd says.13
“Every age cohort experienced greater excess mortality year over year. So 2021 was over 2020, and 2022 was over 2021, across all age cohorts … their death rate was on the decline … and it’s going back up. So Denmark has experienced detrimental health outcomes. Curiously enough, while I was writing the book, they effectively banned the vaccine for [those] under 50, where they said, ‘We’d rather you get COVID than take the vaccine.’”

Health Agencies ‘in Coverup Mode’Download Interview Transcript | Video Link
When asked why health agencies aren’t stepping in to investigate the surge in sudden deaths, Dowd suspects they’re all MIA [missing in action] because “they’re in coverup mode.” “I won’t rest until we stop what’s going on,” he says, adding that a lot of first responders are still facing mandates to get the shot and some universities still require it.
He’s hoping for more whistleblowers to come out and congressional hearings to break through the deafening “misinformation” narrative that’s still very much permeating society.
Critics of his data suggest the excess deaths are due to long COVID, but Dowd says he has yet to see a study showing this is the case—and there’s no definition of what long COVID actually is. Further, many “long COVID” symptoms mirror adverse reactions to COVID-19 shots.

Vision Impairments in Patients after COVID-19 Vaccination, Doctors Caution Possible Risks #MRNAeyes

Vision Impairments in Patients After COVID-19 Vaccination, Doctors Caution Possible RisksBy: Marina ZhangMarch 19, 2023: House Rep. Mike Blecher (R-N.H.) has been suffering from ocular migraines for almost two years.He took his first Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA immunization in April 2021, and things have not been the same since.Around 12 hours after the shot, Belcher recalled developing symptoms of severe flu and neurological symptoms soon manifested in a matter of days.One unusual symptom stood out: His vision became strange. He started to notice that the red and green color balance in his eyes would shift, and dark spots would appear in his field of vision.Belcher would soon be tormented with painful headaches preceded by a blinding light that would cause searing pain at the back of his eyes.This came along with more serious symptoms, including impaired balance (he was unable to walk in a straight line) and memory problems.After being transferred from specialist to specialist, Belcher was finally hospitalized in May 2021.“I was hospitalized for maybe four days, and I was discharged with the diagnosis of protracted ocular migraines with some other names stacked on,” Belcher said. “I had never had a migraine before, and at that point, I had a migraine for [around] 20-something days straight.”Image Above: Undated photo of Michael Belcher. (Courtesy of Michael Belcher)Reports of Unusual Visual and Neurological Symptoms in the VaccinatedAlabama-based neurologist and neuroradiologist Dr. Diane Counce told The Epoch Times that since the vaccine rollouts, she has also seen many patients who, after vaccination, would develop migraines, or experience a worsening or increased frequency of symptoms. These migraines would often manifest with temporary blindness.Counce’s clinic has treated around 300 long-haul and postvaccine patients, and she has noticed that her long-COVID patients tend to have symptom presentations that are more understood, “more textbook presentation,” while the patients who developed symptoms after vaccination may develop more severe and unexplainable symptoms.A rather puzzling symptom she saw in her vaccinated patients was vision fluctuation, which would be accompanied by other neurological problems. The patients’ visual acuity would decline, but the decline would fluctuate from day to day, with no obvious physical abnormality observed in the eye.The constant changes in symptom severity make it hard for patients to change their eyeglass prescription, “because they’ll be different the next day,” Counce said.Ophthalmologist Dr. Lynnell Lowry from Alamo Eye Institute in Texas has also observed a rise in unusual eye problems.She told The Epoch Times about a patient who, for several weeks, had her field of vision interrupted by snow-like disturbances, but Lowry could not find anything remarkable upon examination.Most of Lowry’s vaccinated patients seemed to have developed vision problems related to a shingles flare-up or thyroid-related deficiencies.She has also seen an increase in rarer ocular problems. She would typically see central serous retinopathies around once every five years but has seen three cases in vaccinated people in 2022. She normally sees around one case of cranial nerve palsies every two years but has seen three cases in vaccinated people in 2022.Eye Complications Recorded in Database and LiteratureAccording to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), around 70 percent of eye pain, blurry vision, and visual impairment reports were filed for COVID-19 vaccines, as well as over 50 percent of all eye swelling reports.While VAERS cannot determine whether an adverse event was caused by a vaccination, patterns in reporting may suggest a need for further evaluation to assess potential safety concerns.The United Kingdom, which rolled out vaccines around the same time as the United States, reported over 9,000 cases of neurological symptoms including muscle spasms, myalgia, paresthesia, headaches, and dizziness to its VAERS database by late April 2021.A New Zealand study that tracked about 3,000 vaccinated patients who developed uveitis before the vaccine rollouts found that patients had an increased risk of uveitis flare-ups after vaccination.The baseline rate of uveitis flare was 12.3 per thousand patient months. This number increased to 20.7 after the first dose, 15.0 after the second dose, 12.8 after the third dose, and 23.9 after the fourth dose.In November 2022, the American Academy of Ophthalmology posted a review of ocular manifestations postvaccine that were reported in the literature. Eye complications fell into four broad categories:Ocular inflammatory diseases occur when tissues in the eye become red, swollen, and pained. Postvaccination inflammation has been documented in the conjunctiva, the outermost layer of the eye; the sclera, the white layer covering the eye; as well as inflammation in the inner layers including the episclera and uvea.Optic neuropathies occur when the optic nerves that transfer visual information from the eye to the brain become damaged. This may occur when blood clots stop or limit blood flow to the nerves and also when the body starts attacking its own optic nerves, which may lead to flickering lights in the eyes, vision loss, and pain.Anterior segment conditions are related to eye complications in the front part of the eye such as the cornea, irises, and lens, as well as the muscles that control these areas. Since the vaccines rolled out, there have been several reports of keratitis, which is inflammation in the cornea. Reports of corneal transplant rejections have also been documented, though reporting rates are not higher than rates of other vaccines. Eye infections from shingles have also been reported and may occur with or without rashes.Retinal conditions include tearing and detachment of the retina. Since the retina is responsible for detecting light and color, its damage can lead to impairment and loss of vision.Mark from California suddenly started to see floaters in cobweb-like formations in his left eye within the first two weeks after receiving his first Pfizer dose. This came after suffering from chest pain within hours of vaccination.A referral to an eye specialist showed that his retina was bleeding. The gel in his left eye, which gives eyes their spherical shape, was pulling on the retina, causing the tissue to bleed. If the gel tears or causes the retina to detach, it may lead to permanent vision loss.More Evidence Needed to Prove CausalitySince COVID-19, doctors have become more cautious when discussing vaccine adverse events.Mark said his ophthalmologist told him that the spike protein produced by his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine may have aggregated in his eye, leading to inflammation and damage, but other eye specialists have told him the opposite.Mark had laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) to correct his vision over 20 years ago, so other ophthalmologists told him that he was at risk of retinal detachment to begin with, though studies have generally reported retinal detachment within the first few years after a LASIK surgery.While ophthalmologists are now becoming more aware of vaccine adverse events, some argue that the current evidence that supports ocular complications from the vaccine is not strong enough.Since ocular complications after vaccinations tend to be quite rare to begin with, some experts think it is unknown whether reported cases of suspected ocular problems after vaccinations are side effects or only a matter of coincidence.Ophthalmologist Dr. Abelrahman Elhusseiny, who has co-authored several studies documenting ocular adverse events after COVID-19 vaccinations, said that though the literature on this topic has increased since 2021, he has seen very few cases of possible vaccine adverse events in his clinic.He also said that many of his vaccinated patients who then developed ocular problems had underlying health problems such as autoimmune disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure, which would already put them at risk of ocular symptoms and may increase the risk of vaccine adverse events.While extensive literature has shown that the COVID-19 vaccines can cause myocarditis, pericarditis, and thrombocytopenia, links between COVID-19 vaccines and ocular adverse events have been quite weak.“There is evidence, but the evidence is not as strong as with other conditions such as, say, cardiovascular issues. This is mainly due to [the] small number of events and lack of well-controlled studies specifically on ocular adverse events,” ophthalmic epidemiologist and professor Mahyar Etminan from the University of British Columbia told The Epoch Times over email.The most compelling evidence so far is from a Japanese epidemiology study that matched vaccinated to unvaccinated people. After comparing about 80,000 double-dosed individuals against the same number of unvaccinated people, the authors found that risks of ocular complications increased after the second dose. However, analyzing the same sample using a different technique resulted in an insignificant link between vaccination and ocular symptoms.There are also several case studies reporting possible links, though this type of study is less convincing as evidence to prove causality.Nevertheless, Etminan believed that it is possible to investigate the possible link between ocular complications and vaccinations, adding that the study should be well-designed with a large sample size.“Since these vaccines are under the microscope, we have to be careful not to link everything and the kitchen sink associated with these drugs. This data should only come from well-designed studies,” he said.Ophthalmologists Now Discussing Vaccine Risks With PatientsTo err on the side of caution, some ophthalmologists are now actively bringing up possible risks of vaccines to their patients.Lowry said that now she considers a person’s vaccine status and evaluates its potential temporal association with the symptoms of which her patients complain.Elhusseiny similarly said that he lets his patients know about the risks of vaccinating so they can make their own decisions.One of Elhusseiny’s patients lost his spouse to COVID-19 and continued getting vaccinated without further adverse reactions, while another patient had a relative who experienced a vaccine adverse event, and therefore, decided to stop getting vaccinated.Lowry highlighted the importance of physicians bringing up vaccine risks with their patients.Coming out of the pandemic, she noticed that while some patients suspect that the vaccines may have been involved in some of their symptoms, they seem afraid to mention it voluntarily.“There’s a huge stigma,” Lowry said. Patients who got vaccinated and had adverse events are “almost afraid to blame it on the vaccine.”Especially since most people now have experienced both vaccination and infection, there is an added level of complexity for doctors to come to a diagnosis, with Lowry comparing doctors now to detectives.Looking to the FutureWhen looking to the horizon, the bright light triggers a pulsating effect on his eyes, Belcher said. “The vision kind of fades in and out just a little bit. That’s a constant feature.”Belcher said that many of the doctors he saw during and leading up to his hospitalization were quite certain that the vaccine was a contributor to his condition.Thankfully for Belcher, most of his neurological symptoms are now under control.Though his ocular migraines need daily medication to prevent breakthrough cases, in recent weeks, he’s seeing a decrease in frequency.Belcher hopes that future examinations will inform him of the pathological reasons behind his ocular symptoms.Source: The Epoch Times (Premium) Follow More Breaking News at:Colin Wright on

Three Years to Slow the Spread Marked the Advent of Push-Button Tyranny & Perpetual Fear Porn

Three Years to Slow the Spread Marked the Advent of Push-Button TyrannyBy: Jordan SchachtelMarch 19, 2023 (Updated): This week marks the three-year anniversary of the infamous “15 Days To Slow The Spread” campaign.
By March 16, yours truly was already pretty fed up with both the governmental and societal “response” to what was being baselessly categorized as the worst pandemic in 100 years, despite zero statistical data supporting such a serious claim. I was living in the Washington, DC Beltway at the time, and it was pretty much impossible to find a like-minded person within 50 miles who also wasn’t taking the bait. After I read about the news coming out of Wuhan in January, I spent much of the next couple weeks catching up to speed and reading about what a modern pandemic response was supposed to look like.
What surprised me most was that none of “the measures” were mentioned, and that these designated “experts” were nothing more than failed mathematicians, government doctors, and college professors who were more interested in policy via shoddy academic forecasting than observing reality.
Within days of continually hearing their yapping at White House pressers, It quickly became clear that the Deborah Birxes and Anthony Faucies of the world were engaging in nothing more than a giant experiment. There was no an evidence-based approach to managing Covid whatsoever. These figures were leaning into the collective hysteria, and brandishing their credentials as Public Health Experts to demand top-down approaches to stamping out the WuFlu.To put it bluntly, these longtime government bureaucrats had no idea what the f—k they were doing. Fauci and his cohorts were not established or reputable scientists, but authoritarians, charlatans, who had a decades-long track record of hackery and corruption. This Coronavirus Task Force did not have the collective intellect nor the wisdom to be making these broad-brush decisions.
Back then, there were only literally a handful of people who attempted to raise awareness about the wave of tyranny, hysteria, and anti-science policies that were coming our way. There were so few of us back in March in 2020 that it was impossible to form any kind of significant structured resistance to the madness that was unfolding before us. These structures would later form, but not until the infrastructure for the highway to Covid hysteria hell had already been cemented.
Making matters worse was the reality that the vast majority of the population — friends, colleagues, peers and family included — agreed that dissenters were nothing more than reckless extremists, bioterrorists, Covid deniers, anti-science rabble rousers, and the like.
Yet we were right, and we had the evidence and data to prove it. There was no evidence to ever support such a heavy-handed series of government initiatives to “slow the spread.”
By March 16, 2020, data had already accumulated indicating that this contagion would be no more lethal than an influenza outbreak.
The February, 2020 outbreak on the Diamond Princess cruise ship provided a clear signal that the hysteria models provided by Bill Gates-funded and managed organizations were incredibly off-base. Of the 3,711 people aboard the Diamond Princess, about 20 percent tested positive with Covid. The majority of those who tested positive had zero symptoms. By the time all passengers had disembarked from the vessel, there were 7 reported deaths on the ship, with the average age of this cohort being in the mid-80s, and it wasn’t even clear if these passengers died from or with Covid.
Despite the strange photos and videos coming out of Wuhan, China, there was no objective evidence of a once-in-a-century disease approaching America’s shores, and the Diamond Princess outbreak made that clear.
Of course, it wasn’t the viral contagion that became the problem.
It was the hysteria contagion that brought out the worst qualities of much of the global ruling class, letting world leaders take off their proverbial masks in unison and reveal their true nature as power drunk madmen.
And even the more decent world leaders were swept up in the fear and mayhem, turning over the keys of government control to the supposed all-knowing Public Health Experts.
They quickly shuttered billions of lives and livelihoods, wreaking exponentially more havoc than a novel coronavirus ever could.
In the United States, 15 Days to Slow The Spread quickly became 30 Days To Slow The Spread. Somewhere along the way, the end date for “the measures” was removed from the equation entirely.
3 years later, there still isn’t an end date…
Anthony Fauci appeared on MSNBC Thursday morning and declared that Americans would need annual Covid boosters to compliment their Flu shots.So much of the Covid hysteria era was driven by pseudoscience and outright nonsense, and yet, very few if any world leaders took it upon themselves to restore sanity in their domains. Now, unsurprisingly, so many elected officials who were complicit in this multi-billion person human tragedy won’t dare to reflect upon it.
In a 1775 letter from John Adams to his wife, Abigail, the American Founding Father wrote: “Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.”Covid hysteria and the three-year anniversary of 15 Days To Slow The Spread serve as the beginning period of a permanent scar resulting from government power grabs and federal overreach. While life is back to normal in most of the country, the Overton window of acceptable policy has slid even further in the direction of push-button tyranny. Hopefully, much of the world has awakened to the reality that most of the people in charge aren’t actually doing what’s best for their respective populations.Source: Brownstone Institute Follow More Breaking News at:Colin Wright on
