“The most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” – President Ronald Reagan
“Never let a crisis go to waste.” – Rahm Emanuel, aide to President Barack Obama
As we humans retreat deeper into state-imposed isolation, I wonder how many of us are aware that something big, something really big, of historic proportions, is taking shape.
The life-changing medicine has been administered in measured doses, tiny sips at first. There were warnings to wash your hands frequently and stop the spread of a novel coronavirus that originated in China. That’s easy. No problem!
Each new dose got more extreme: Churches and businesses forced to close. People divided into essential and non-essential. Americans locked down in their homes.
As long as we keep opening our mouths and swallowing the medicine on command, succumbing to peer pressure and a herd mentality, the doses will continue to be offered up, one more severe and distasteful than the other.
At what point do we decide it’s time to spit out this toxic brew?
It should be evident by now that if we continue to swallow the poison, we will be participants in a transformation of American society so complete, so radical, that even Barack Obama could not have delivered it to his globalist masters.
When the finished product is unveiled, people will look at it in astonishment.
How did this happen? How did we not see it coming? And it happened on Trump’s watch!
Drip, drip, drip… We stood back and listened to the sound of disappearing freedoms, refusing to even glance at the bigger picture.
Unemployment is predicted to reach 30 percent or more. Nothing is capable of destabilizing a nation faster than mass numbers of unemployed workers unable to feed their families.
Recently closed businesses in Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia are boarding up their buildings in preparation for civil unrest. It’s coming folks. Violence in the streets.
Rights once thought to be guaranteed by our Constitution have proved expendable to politicians under pressure from the mob to “do something.” The herd, spooked by fear-mongering provocateurs, waits with open mouths, clamoring for more government elixir.
It’s a small sacrifice to stay home. You can do it for a few days, a few weeks, a few….
After all, it’s for the common good, right? Anything less would mean 1 million to 2 million of your fellow Americans will die of the COVID19 coronavirus! These projections were reported with screaming headlines, only to be later admitted as wildly inaccurate.
Stunningly, the country was shut down based on these false models!
Suddenly, the “15 days to slow the spread” morphed into 30 days [actually 45 if you do the math], and “voluntary shelter in place” became a mandatory lock-down enforced by police.
President Trump started out talking sense. We could fight the virus, he said, and protect our economy at the same time.
“America is not built for a shut down,” he said.
But the technocrats who have his ear, Drs. Fauci and Birx, finally wore him down.
They broke him.
You could see it in his daily briefing on Monday. He seemed more somber and monotone than normal as he read from a script and less from his own instincts.
Trump talked about “protocols” being developed for future pandemics. Does this mean every time a new virus breaks out our government will shut down the entire economy and lock us in our homes?
On Tuesday he said the government might need to “look at” using cellphones to track the movement of Americans who are violating stay-at-home orders.
He hinted that the current shut-down of an entire nation’s economy could last into June and maybe longer. Elements of it may never go away, he warned.
What does that mean for the 2020 presidential election?
What does that mean for the ability of millions of Americans put bread on the table?
The politicians congratulate themselves at their daily briefings when all they are doing is lying to our faces about why we must hand them a blank check to suspend our Constitutional rights.
Sorry, but there is nothing in our Constitution that says the rights contained therein are conditional upon the latest viral outbreak. There’s more going on here than meets the eye.
Tens of thousands die in this country every year from the flu. Thousands more die from drug overdoses, including the much-publicized opioid epidemic. We don’t shut down our economy to fight those epidemics.
Why is coronavirus so special that it warrants such extreme and unprecedented measures?
Here’s what’s really going on….
