The left are confident, as America’s new ‘god,’ that they are invincible, infallible and will be in power in perpetuity, believing the majority of the populace will always look to them for salvation.

(American Thinker) – The entire panoply of the Chinese Coronavirus ‘pandemic’ countermeasures, from lockdowns to vaccine mandates, has been a once in a century fiasco and among the biggest blunders in American history. This chapter is also the catalyst that emboldened an already despotic ruling class and the American left:

  • to unabashedly take their fraudulent manipulation of elections out of the shadows and into the daylight,
  • to no longer hide their socialist agenda,
  • to brazenly weaponize the justice system against their political opponents, and
  • to be so audacious as to unjustifiably raid the home of President Trump, their archenemy.

Over the centuries, in virtually all societies, people known to be infected by various diseases were confined and isolated to mitigate the spread and protect the rest of society. Never has a nation essentially shut down its economy, closed schools and confined the entire populace. Nor has the United States ever enforced de facto national mandates for unproven and potentially dangerous vaccines. And, never in the nation’s history has a pandemic been politicized in order to defeat a certain candidate and benefit one political party.

Centuries of best practices and ethical standards were discarded by many in the medical profession and scientific institutions. The federal medical bureaucracies abandoned virtually all oversight of the pharmaceutical companies, and became in effect their marketing departments, promoting and mandating COVID vaccines without adequate safety standards and long-term testing. What was obvious blatant propaganda was presented and accepted by the American citizenry as unquestioned truth. The entirety of the corporate and social media willingly morphed into mouthpieces and censors for the government.

Why did the vast majority of the American citizens meekly succumb to the unprecedented usurpation of their rights and unquestioningly believe the so-called “experts?” Why did so many turn into a group-thinking herd mindlessly marching to the music played by the government? Why did so many scientists, educators, doctors, and journalists abandon their integrity and compassion as well as scientific and intellectual curiosity?

Over the past half-century, the all-consuming pursuit of unfettered personal and physical satisfaction has eventuated in abject disdain toward, and the abandonment of, the basic rules of human behavior and morality as espoused by Judeo-Christian teachings. The moral fiber of a country, and the religious basis upon which the United States and European nations developed, is being replaced by a misguided and unquestioning faith in man and his institutions (i.e., government, educational establishments, global corporations, and “experts”).

As a result, an ever-increasing percentage of the citizenry has been conditioned to unquestioningly look to the government and its attendant institutions and experts to cure all societal and health related ills. The unprincipled ruling class and its allies, the radical American left and mainstream media, have for decades promoted this mindset as it abets their lust for permanent power. However, this obligates those in power to cure all ills, even a global ‘pandemic.’ Thus, it follows that the State will inevitably claim that in order to do so it must take control of our lives against our will even if we are healthy.

The most effective tool in manipulating an increasingly agnostic and secular populace is to provoke fear and panic. Which is easily done with a sizable percentage of the American population that has become hyper risk-averse and permanently on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Herd mentality and mass hysteria are effortlessly fomented as far too many, rather than question the “experts,” are willing to believe anything the omnipotent government bureaucrats and politicians say and to mindlessly follow their edicts.

The well-publicized and choreographed draconian lockdowns undertaken by the Chinese Communists promoting the inane concept of eliminating the virus, combined with 1) the mimicking of China by the first lockdown in the West (Italy in February of 2020) and 2) the dire grossly exaggerated and unscientific fatality estimates by various institutions who recommended world-wide lockdowns, gave the ruling elites the pretext to sow fear and panic by portraying the virus in Hollywoodesque apocalyptic terms.

Yet, it was known among medical professionals that COVID was far less deadly and was in fact on the decline in Italy even before other western countries’ full lockdowns began. It was also known that the virus had an exponentially lower infection fatality rate than projected and that the vast majority of infections and fatalities were among the health-compromised elderly and not the general population.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of

October 09, 2020   It appears that Joe Biden was even a lying machine in 2008 according to the post " Media Ignores Biden Repeatedly Lies During 'Meet the Press' Interview" on the Weasel Zippers website: Joe Biden Repeatedly Lies During "Meet the Press" Interview, Claims he Doesn't Support Taxpayer Funded Abortions.....   Joe, do you know what else is a sin besides killing babies? Lying... ... Joe Biden repeatedly made the claim in a Sunday interview on the NBC political show "Meet the Press" that he opposes taxpayer funding of abortions. However, a look at his voting record over the years reveals numerous instances where Barack Obama's pro-abortion running mate did exactly that. "I don't support public, public funding. I don't, because that flips the burden. That's then telling me I have to accept a different view," he said on the program. As recently as February, Biden voted against an amendmen
