The Coronavirus Crisis
“The only thing you have to fear is fear itself.”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933
President John F. Kennedy, 1961
The coronavirus crisis has spread throughout the nation and around the world. Thousands are dead, millions are out of work — the most since the Great Depression. Fearing for our lives, the public now calls for lockdown, contact-tracing, social distancing, and widespread testing, eerily similar to the authoritarian dystopian future described in Brave New World.
We live in an echo-chamber, a cacophony of fear-inducing headlines, and 24x7 news media coverage.
“Hundreds more dead today.”
“Millions in lockdown.”
“Stay home. Stay safe.”
The government has grown more powerful than ever as the public clamors for more government control, anything that will keep them safe from the “invisible enemy” that threatens so many people.
The media has deemed our First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly a non-essential threat to society.
Meanwhile, President Trump’s neoconservative government seized our Third Amendment right to privacy through the use of a matter-of-fact disclosure statement listed on the IRS Get My Payment page. The same disclosure renders void our Fourth Amendment right to secure communications and effects.
Due process and the right to a speedy trial, our Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights are rendered null and void without rights to speech, privacy, secure communications, and property.
But this isn’t the first time this has happened. That credit belongs to President George W. Bush and his passage of the USA PATRIOT Act.
“Use of this system constitutes consent to monitoring, interception, recording, reading, copying, or capturing by authorized personnel of all activities. There is no right to privacy in this system,” the disclosure reads.
No right to privacy, indeed.
With language copied from the USA PATRIOT Act, subjectively and deceptively worded, as usual, the disclaimer makes no mention to any limiting factor in terms of time, duration, location, or otherwise with regard to the interception, recording or capturing of all activities.
For years, the government has sought to replace family ties with loyalty to it, the all-powerful government. Now, it seems, through the use of an incurable coronavirus, created and funded since 2002 with a grant from the National Institute of Health in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, the ominous “they” are on the verge of completing their mission.
Gone is the hearty handshake.
Gone is the healthy hug between friends and family.
Gone is the connection we gain through touch.
Controlled News Narrative
So how did we get here?
Our multitude of media choice and the 24x7 “news” channels are owned by just six major media companies, all of which are owned by the Federal Reserve and steadfastly managed by the intelligence community.
For the last 20 years, at least, we could count on the media to parrot another, each repeating the same headlines, ushering society towards greater governmental control regardless of which party was in power. And while the post-911 neoconservative Republican party created the virus just as they passed the USA PATRIOT Act, stacked the Supreme Court, and sold our elections to corporations, all in partnership with neoconservative elements within the Democratic establishment, this coronavirus crisis feels different, as though something is off.
For example, if the post-911 neoconservative Republican party wanted to end the American experiment as their actions suggest since 2001, wouldn’t they have waited until after President Trump’s re-election to release the pandemic that they had so patiently developed over the past 18 years? The economic fallout now threatens President Trump’s re-election.
Yet, if the intelligence community had discovered the neoconservative plan to hijack America, would they really release the virus upon millions of unsuspecting Americans? Would they really kill thousands, potentially millions of people, in the name of righting the wrongs of the post-911 neoconservative communist threat?
I doubt it.
But the motive is clear: President Trump is a threat to America. As long as the economy is good, he’s likely to be re-elected. So, fake it. Crash the economy. And boot the neoconservative conspirator — in favor of the other, more politically correct, neoconservative conspirator.
Perhaps that is why nuggets of truth seep through the cracks in the media narrative, like in the months following September 11th, 2001.
Why do the coronavirus case numbers include those of flu and pneumonia?
Why do death tallies resemble in remarkable fashion the annual death figure of flu and pneumonia?
Why has it taken so long to get reliable testing?
Do you personally know a friend or family member who has died as a result of this mysterious COVID-19 or have your friends and family all recovered?
If the government didn’t have the capability to do so, then why would they issue a disclosure that rescinds our rights by subjecting America to unfettered “monitoring, interception, recording, reading, copying or capture of all activities”?
Can we really trust anything we hear online and on television anywhere within our borders?
These are serious questions worth asking. Our freedom hangs in the balance.
With that said, the coronavirus crisis has exposed the weaknesses in our privately held oil-banking economic system.
Our air is cleaner than it has been at any point in our lifetimes. Animals are venturing out from their hiding spots to explore areas that humanity conquered long ago. The news is finally covering critical issues of exploitation that has long been ignored.
Issues such as the fact that American minorities are more likely to suffer from poor air and water quality, more likely to consume unhealthy fast food, more likely to work low wage jobs, more likely to become homeless and unemployed, and more likely to become incarcerated.
Poor choices, as so-called conservative media pundits like to argue, are not at fault here. We, the People, are at fault for propping up a predatory system in which every American is not treated equally. The Constitution states plainly that we are equally endowed by our creator with certain rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. However, when one is forced to choose between two bad options, is that not evidence that the game is rigged?
One choice is no better than the other.
Sounds a lot like our current political entrapment, if you ask me.
Speaking of which, if you think that President Obama is responsible for COVID-19, think again.
President Obama halted funding for potential pandemic pathogens (PPPs) in 2014. Months later in 2015, President Obama created the Global Health Security and Biodefense unit, with the charge of pandemic preparedness.
In contrast, the Trump Administration restarted coronavirus research as soon as he took office in January 2017. Following John Bolton’s appointment as National Security Advisor, a renowned neoconservative, the Trump team disbanded the Obama-era pandemic response team in 2018.
You might argue that the U.S. government is a large, sprawling organization, and therefore it is possible that President Trump was telling the truth that he didn’t know that Bolton disbanded the pandemic response team.
To that end, I’ll concede the point. Yes, it’s possible that President Trump didn’t know that his National Security Advisor disbanded the team. After all, it took six years for President Obama to halt funding for coronavirus PPPs. Nevertheless, if your aim is to drain the swamp, you want someone leading the charge who will lead by example.
So what’s really going on with the coronavirus crisis?
I’m a betting man, so I’ll place my chips.
To me, this looks a lot like the intelligence community revolt that America has needed for so long, one of traditional conservatives and liberals standing together for American Constitutional values, for the restoration of liberty, and for the ouster of a dictatorial threat to the American experiment.
There’s just one problem…
Free societies conduct business in the open.
Free societies neither hide from nor lie to one another.
Free societies do not rely upon unaccountable military, banking, and intelligence communities to keep them safe.
Free societies are not entrapped by unconstitutional State Department non-disclosure agreements.
Until our intelligence community gives up total control over our lives, which they have enjoyed for so long, America, We, the People, will never be truly free.
We are a fear-dominated society. As a result of our collective fear and willingness to give in to that fear, America has nearly completed our Faustian bargain of liberty for security.
We’re writing the last chapter of the American democratic experiment, and it’s anything but a story-book ending. Our American Dream is quickly transforming into the American Nightmare of the have-nots.
So what is a good American to do?
It starts with recognizing that in a system of lies, we must demand the truth.
Both political parties are complicit in our entrapment.
The presumptive neoconservative Democratic nominee, VP Joe Biden, first presented the USA PATRIOT Act in 1994, a year after the 1993 car bomb attack on the World Trade Center. The actual USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 was also proposed following an attack on the World Trade Center, except this time, the Act passed just 45 days after the September 11th attacks.
The pre-911 Republican party is credited with thwarting Biden’s effort to hijack America on the basis that it was blatantly unconstitutional. Perhaps that is why the neoconservative insurgency switched parties — to hijack America, they first needed to hijack the Republican party blocking the way.
President Trump, our current neoconservative-empowered leader, and would-be dictator is fighting for his political survival. However, as long as our choices remain limited to the author of the PATRIOT Act and the authoritarian dictator whom the act has empowered, America is destined to continue our march towards totalitarianism.
To understand how we may escape our entrapment, we must understand how we arrived here in the first place — and that starts with understanding the relationship between the Federal Reserve and the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
Fear & Security vs. Love & Liberty
As usual, the devil lies in the details.
I believe that the coronavirus is real, but not on the loose, and to escape our entrapment, we must convert the Federal Reserve into a clean, green, citizen-owned, and fully transparent credit union by giving every American an equal ownership stake in the Federal Reserve. We must restore trust and transparency in our system by declassifying and open-sourcing the government, and we must restore Constitutional law with the passage of the Amendments for America package.
As a result of these actions, we can expect our health and wealth to grow in tandem with nature. We, the People, will earn a dividend from our collective product. We’ll get off of oil and out of oil-wars, and finally, invest in renewables and organics. We’ll regain control of our courts, our elections, our budget, and our political representation. We’ll also have the capability to freeze payments in the event of a crisis without adding to our national debt.
However, as long as the intelligence apparatus controls the fear-inducing media narrative, whether part of the current revolt or not, America will never be truly free. A return to a pre-Trump status quo is still one of surveillance and oppression, a system of the haves and the have-nots, a Constitution that is not applied evenly to all people, and a system that is antithetical to the American experiment.
We must elect a leader who will pledge to end the privately held foreign-controlled Federal Reserve, end the classified nature of government, and apply the Constitution evenly to all people — the reasons why I am running as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
Some of us have other responsibilities to tend to. So what are we to do?
Free people face their fears.
Free people also respect the rights of other free people to do as they please with their life, liberty, and love, so I will not tell you what to do. Instead, I’ll tell you what I’ll do.
I will offer my hand in greeting and I will hug my friends and family because in a system of fear, showing love is a revolutionary act.
If you, too, are unafraid, please show it. Hug your friends. Hug your family. Fight for your freedom, tell a friend, and get involved with this campaign. Only then — when people see that we are not getting sick and dying as the media tries to scare us into believing — only then will liberty strike back.
In the words of President John F. Kennedy, “We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light a candle that can guide us through the darkness to a safe and sure future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old ways will not do.”
