money as possible from one    
party of the citizens to give to

FIVE BEST SENTENCES

 
1. You cannot legislate the poor into    
prosperity, by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

 
2. What one person receives without    
working for, another person must    
work for without receiving.

 
3. The government cannot give to    
anybody anything that the    
government does not first take    
from somebody else.

 
4. You cannot multiply wealth by    
dividing it.

 
5. When half of the people get the    
idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the    
beginning of the end of any nation!

First Amendment Rights

Quote from the Thomas Moore attorney speaking for the Brooklyn Diocese Supreme Court decision: “But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. Before allowing this to occur, we have a duty to conduct a serious examination of the need for such a drastic measure.” 

This law firm has been helping churches across the nation fight for their First Amendment rights.

The Answer is Freedom

Words from RON PAUL in response to COVID restrictions: "It's not that complicated. The issue is whether or not we have our freedom and our responsibility to take care of ourselves. That would solve a lot of these problems. It doesn't mean it will be a perfect world. You won't have perfect medicine. But when you let the bureaucrats in, the authoritarians and the Fauci's of the world, the Bill Gates of the world, to dictate social policies, and medical policy, science policy and all these things, you end up with a monstrosity. And to reverse this is going to be very difficult. Because even when the facts come out, which they are, it's going to be very hard. The people have been conditioned to be fearful, to be scared, and we are raising a whole generation of people intimidated and frightened and scared about what's going on. 

But we have a job ahead of ourselves and the solution is not only believing in freedom but also to believe and get people to understand what freedom is all about and why a free society is so much safer and so much more productive. So if you're looking for peace and prosperity you have to look for a free society that recognizes the value of liberty."

A Safer and Fairer World

You've heard talk about a global reset, great reset, or just reset. What was once a conspiracy theory is now surfacing to be very real and very scary. Of course this includes climate change issues but also the idea that we're headed toward a population explosion which will necessitate the need to be selective as to which humans may be allowed to inhabit the earth. Another word for this is eugenics. Activities toward control and centralization have been many years in the making. Read these words from Julian Huxley speaking about goals for the newly founded UNESCO, a United Nations agency, in 1945:

Fear-Based Society?

Yinon Weiss writes in the Federalist, "Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid...Our universal use of unscientific face coverings therefore is closer to medieval superstition than it is to science."

COVID Over-Reaction

Thanks to Scott Atlas, MD, Health Care Policy Advisor to the President, for speaking out and putting his finger on the truth:

"One of the biggest failures of the voices of public health in the United States and the world is that they instill fear, they specifically instill fear, with their proclamations, their statements that, 'Oh, we don't know this, we don't know that,' as if we knew nothing about immunology, as if we knew nothing about viral infections, as if we knew nothing about corona viruses. And the models that were put forth were worst case scenarios that were just hideously wrong, and the media that has hyped up these rare exceptions like multi-system inflammation in children even though we know the overwhelming evidence that this disease is not high risk for children, it's absolutely not high risk for children. So all of this sort of hyperbole, the sensationalism and the failure of public health officials to articulate what we know instead of what we don't know has instilled fear. ..It's the fear, but the fear is due to what was said by the so-called experts, by the media and by, really, a failure to understand that they were instilling fear or a failure to care they were instilling fear and we see it today every single day."

“What we’re experiencing is a brutal social engineering program masquerading as a public health crisis. We play along with that premise at our peril.”

600 Doctors question all the mandates and demand open debate: Google: “Docs 4 Open Debate” ( www.Docs4OpenDebate.be.en )

These 600 Doctors have said: ”We believe that the [Corona] policy has introduced mandatory measures that are not sufficiently scientifically based, unilaterally directed, and that there is not enough space in the media for an open debate in which different views and opinions are heard… We reject these extremely disproportionate measures…. We demand an immediate end to all measures…. We call for an in-depth examination of the role of the W.H.O. and the possible influence of conflicts of interest in this organization… The systematic censorship of all dissenting opinions in the media… is unacceptable for a democratic state governed by the rule of law.”

Each playlist contains a pre-selected “smorgasbord” (that is, like a “buffet”) of videos for you to choose from.  Feel free to watch whatever video or videos you might be interested in.  You do not need to watch them in any order, and you certainly do not need to watch them all.  Even if you watch only a small number of these videos, you will be more informed about what issues are being hidden from the public than the average citizen.  Knowledge is power!  You and your family’s future may depend on how much you know, as this situation is guaranteed to affect your future! 

There are three things you can do right now to repel this madness!  1) Educate yourself.  2) Spread the word.  3) Stop complying with any “guidelines” you don’t agree with (it’s easier than you think!) They cannot keep this charade going if enough people stop complying!

Fair Weather Freedoms

Federal Judge Stickman's ruling against Pennsylvania's governor regarding COVID: "The liberties protected by the Constitution are not fair-weather freedoms---in place when times are good but able to be cast aside in times of trouble. There is no question that this country has faced and will face emergencies of every sort, but the solution to a national crisis can never be permitted to supercede the commitment to individual liberty that stands as the foundation of the American experiment."
