It’s been awhile since commenting on you blog but today seems like a good time to say the following:
My Country, sadly, has become a dystopian nightmare.
When virtually everything you have ever believed about your Country morphs and manifests as a dystopian State;
When your Country’s wokeness becomes the virus that infects and imprisons your deeply held core beliefs, values, ethics, morals and principles (BVEMPs);
When your Country treats you as a parriah for trying to exercise your guaranteed, now a myth, Rights and Freedoms;
When your body is no longer yours and it’s sanctity is raped and guillotined, daily, by the State;
When your former Rights and Freedoms illusion becomes a sick delusion;
When the foundational elements and institutions of your society and Country become your
Sadly, you have been attacked by the woke mob; subjected to the autocratic, intolerant, totalitarian state of existence where personnel choice is persona non grata and your amoeba like existence is demanded.
Welcome, Canadians, to your dystopian future; your Borg pod awaits your arrival—preceded, of course, by the Jab; you will comply; you will complete the assimilation and you will enjoy and be grateful for it.
With the right arm extended, fingers compressed together— the new, compliant Canadian Borgs shout in unison, “Ya volt mein furher”!!!!!!
This reality is Sad, but oh so true. Thanks for your continued commitment and dogged determination to shed light on this fiasco in the making.
POSTED ON: OCTOBER 18, 2021
The legal challenge is brought on behalf of eight Ontario citizens who are exercising their Charter rights and freedoms by not taking one or more doses of the Covid vaccine.
One of the eight applicants in this court case is Sarah Lamb, from Kitchener. She suffered serious adverse effects from the first dose of the Covid vaccine and has decided against a second dose. Ms. Lamb has been unable to obtain an exemption to the vaccine passport. The Ontario government has proclaimed that exemptions to the vaccine passport would only be accepted in very limited cases.
Ms. Sarah Harjee, another Applicant, is an expectant mother with degrees in nursing and public health. Ms. Harjee is concerned about possible adverse effects from the Covid vaccine on herself and her unborn child. Currently there are no long-term studies which prove the new vaccines’ safety.
Evan Kraayenbrink is a paramedic who has decided he will wait for further data on the effects of the Covid vaccine prior to deciding whether to be injected with it. Mr. Kraayenbrink also has religious beliefs about being ultimately accountable to God for what he allows to be done to his body.
Sam Sabourin is a 29-year-old gym owner in Ottawa. Mr. Sabourin exercises his Charter right to bodily autonomy by not taking the Covid vaccine, and also refuses to deny entry to his gym based on vaccination status. He welcomes all patrons without discrimination. All the applicants have concerns about the government compelling vaccinations to go about their normal lives.
“With respect to owners of businesses and organizations, the vaccine passports compel them to enforce unconstitutional laws, as well as laws that would typically be considered to violate human rights legislation. Ontarians should not be forced to discriminate and exclude others from society on the basis of a personal and private medical decision,” points out Jorge Pineda, Staff Lawyer at the Justice Centre.
Ontario’s vaccine passport laws were introduced on September 22, 2021 and prohibit individuals from entering restaurants, gyms and other establishments unless they are “fully vaccinated” as defined by the Government. As of October 20, 2021, individuals will be required to produce government issued QR Codes on a smart phone in order to obtain everyday services the government has arbitrarily deemed “non-essential.”
Ontario Premier Doug Ford has claimed that the vaccine passport “give us the best chance to slow the spread of this virus while helping us avoid further lockdowns.” However, the government does not dispute that vaccinated people spread viruses. Further, vaccine manufacturers have only promised that those receiving the new mRNA vaccines will suffer less severe symptoms; no promise was made that vaccines stop the spread.
Businesses and organizations that do not enforce these new restrictions are liable to fines of up to $10,000,000 and business owners are being threatened with imprisonment for up to one year.
Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantee the rights and freedoms of Canadians. “The Supreme Court of Canada has found that the Charter protects the right to bodily autonomy and informed consent, this is the law, and it is indisputable. The vaccine passport is a brazen attempt to subvert the Charter and to render its protections meaningless,” says Mr. Pineda.
“The Ontario vaccine passport itself is an instrument of coercion that pressures individuals to submit to a medical intervention, contrary to their will and their own best judgment,” adds Mr. Pineda.
“Not only is this ethically wrong, it is also illegal. When we get before the Court, we will be urging that they see these vaccine mandates for what they really do – which is take away the long-standing rights of citizens to make informed decisions about their own medical care.”

Just another “rare” “mild” “breakthrough” case.
And the highest profile Covid death to date by far.
Because vaccines work.
Rest in peace, General Powell.
Aldous Huxley: The perfect dictatorship…

Letter To Any Doctor In Canada ‘s Public Health System Who Refuses Care .
This one was done for BC . Here are the heath transfers for the other Provinces so you can change the Province and number for the Province or Territory you live in : NWT-$51M, Nunavut-$45M, Yukon-$48M, Alberta-$5B, Sask-$1.3B, Manitoba-$1.5B, Ontario-$16.6B, Quebec-$9.7B, New Brunswick-$881M, PEI-4182M, Nova Scotia-$1.1B, Newfoundland and Labrador-$585M.
I wish to inform and provide notice that your refusal to provide heath care to me is in violation of several important documents.
A. The Canada Health Act :
—‘ 3 It is hereby declared that the primary objective of Canadian health care policy is to protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers.
- 1984, c. 6, s. 3
10 In order to satisfy the criterion respecting universality, the health care insurance plan of a province must entitle one hundred per cent of the insured persons of the province to the insured health services provided for by the plan on uniform terms and conditions.
- 1984, c. 6, s. 10
B. The Hippocratic Oath— 400 BC —‘ I will follow the system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgement, I consider to the benefit of my patients , and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel;——————-.’
C. Code of Ethics Of The Canadian Medical Association— approved by The Board Of Directors in 1996.
Section 7. In providing medical service, do not discriminate against any patient on such grounds as age, gender, marital status, medical condition, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. This does not abrogate the physician’s right to refuse to accept a patient for legitimate reasons.
D. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms :
7 Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
15 (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
Each one of these provisions above is being violated by your refusal as a doctor in Canada’s Public Health System to provide care.
The Canada Health Act is in operation in BC since the Province receives under this act billions of dollars annually. This year the Province is receiving $5.8 Billion according to the Federal Governments Federal Transfer Program . Here is the link : https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/programs/federal-transfers/major-federal-transfers.html.
I cannot find anywhere that BC has opted out of this national program and since it is still receiving money under the program it is very much a part of it .
The Hippocratic Oath is one that all physicians abide by in the western world and often is summarized as ‘do no harm.’
The Canadian Medical Association Board of Directors in 1996 approved a Code Of Ethics. BC physicians come under this Association.
The Charter of Right and Freedoms was passed as part of the Constitution Act 0f 1982 and applies to all Canadians.
By refusing me health care you are therefore
Violating the Canada Health Act —by not providing reasonable access and not ‘ protecting, promoting and restoring , the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada .’
Violating the Hippocratic Oath of doing no harm
Violating the ethics of the the Canadian Medical Association
Violating at least two provisions of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms of the Constitution Act of 1982,
BY DAVID STOCKMAN OCTOBER 16, 2021
The Covid-Lockdowns, masking orders, hovering Virus Patrols and Fauci-fear campaigns were bad enough—along with the associated escalation of corporate social and MSM media censorship to a wholly new and frightening level. And it wasn’t just the virus coming out of the Wuhan blue in January 2020, either
The Ordeal of the Covid followed hard upon the lawless four-year high-jacking of the national security apparatus to prosecute the RussiaGate re-litigation of the 2016 Trump election. And that occurred side-by-side with the growing political class hysteria about an imminent climate crisis which is nothing of the kind.
There has also been the flat-out woke racialization of political and social life culminating in the BLM riots of summer 2020. Whereupon followed a relentless attempt to transform the January 6 outbreak of piss poor Capitol Hill policing and the unruly vandalism by a rearguard of mainly Trumpite yokels and yahoos into the American equivalent of Lenin’s storming of the Winter Palace.
That is to say, it already smelled like unprecedented authoritarianism and incipient tyranny was wafting in the air of American democracy, nay even fascism wearing a progressive mask. But upon the arrival of Joe Biden’s mandatory vaccinations and what amounts to an internal “papers” edict……well, now we know.
It’s the real thing. A hybrid progressive left/corporate media/ Big Business form of one-party Fascism now stalks the land and threatens to the quick America’s 234 year-old democracy and the liberty and human rights of virtually every citizen.
And make no mistake. This is about total social control, not a public health threat. It involves sacrificing personal liberty and the protections of constitutional law to a threadbare narrative about the collective good as conceived by the statist left but which is contradicted and refuted by the real “science” at every turn.
Ronald Reagan famously said that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction”, but he was a great man of the last century. Now, in the digitized, hyper-accelerated 24/7 world of breaking news and social media noise, make that not one generation but one year, even a few months and weeks.
That is to say, thanks to the left/progressive dominance of today’s web of communications accelerators—like the Facebook of $419 million Biden man Mark Zuckerburg—once a predicate gets implanted in the digital flow it becomes yet another version of Matt Taibbi’s Vampire Squid. Wrapped around the flow of what should be news, its blood funnel relentlessly jams all the facts, content and especially factoids into the reining narrative.
But with respect to the Great Covid Hysteria, like the other above mentioned threats to democracy and liberty as we have known them, the reining narrative is dead wrong. Covid’s not the Black Plague or even a widespread public health menace. It presents no existential threat to society’s survival and well-being—at least not one which even remotely justifies setting aside normal civil liberties or regimenting and ruining daily commerce and social life.
We will momentarily get to all the flaws in the insane numbers diarrhea about tests, case counts, hospital counts, death counts and heart-rending anecdotes about individual suffering and loss on end. But the single most important thing to grasp is that when it comes to the heart of the narrative—-the alleged soaring death counts—the narrative is just plain bogus.
The undisputed fact is that the CDC changed rules for causation on death certificates in March 2020, so now we have no idea whatsoever whether the 713,000 deaths reported to date were deaths because OF Covid or just incidentally were departures from this mortal world WITH Covid. The extensive well-documented cases of DOA from heart attacks, gunshot wounds, strangulation or motorcycle accidents, which had tested positive before the fatal event or by postmortem, are proof enough.
More importantly, what we do know is that not even the power-drunk apparatchiks at the CDC and other wings of the Federal public health apparatus found a way to change the total mortality counts from all causes.
That’s the smoking gun unless you consider the year 2003 to have been an unbearable year of extraordinary death and societal misery in America. To wit, the age-adjusted death rate from all causes in America during 2020 was actually 1.8% lower than it had been in 2003 and nearly 11% lower than it had been during what has heretofore been understood to be the benign year of 1990.
To be sure, there was a slight elevation of the all-causes mortality rate in 2020. That’s because the Covid did disproportionately and in some ghoulish sense harvest the immunologically vulnerable elderly and co-morbid slightly ahead of the Grim Reaper’s ordinary schedule.
And far worse, there were also extraordinary deaths last year among the less Covid vulnerable population owing to hospitals that were in government ordered turmoil; and also to an undeniable rise in human malfunction among the frightened, isolated, home-bound quarantined, which resulted in a swelling of homicides, suicides and a record level of deaths from drug overdoses (94,000).
Still, the common sense line of sight across this 30-year chart below tells you 1000 times more than the context-free Johns Hopkins case and death counts scrolling across America’s TV and computer screens day-in-and-day-out. It tells you there was no deadly plague; there was no extraordinary public health crisis; and that the Grim Reaper was not stalking the highways and byways of America.
Compared to the pre-Covid norm recorded in 2019, the age-adjusted risk of death in America last year went up from 0.71% to 0.84%. In humanitarian terms, that’s unfortunate but it does not even remotely bespeak a mortal threat to societal function and survival and therefore a justification for the sweeping control measures and suspensions of both liberty and common sense that actually happened.
This fundamental mortality fact—the “science” in bolded letters if there is such a thing—totally invalidates the core notion behind the Fauci policy that was sprung upon our deer-in-the-headlights president stumbling around the Oval Office in early March 2020. That is, there was no reason for a sweeping intervention by the public health apparatus at all, nor for the coercive one-size-fits all, state-driven mobilization of quarantines, lockdowns, testing, masking, distancing, surveilling, snitching and ultimately mass vaxxing with experimental drugs—all which followed hard upon the fatal March error at relentless, breathtaking and virtually unchallenged speeds.
To the contrary, the virus’ spread was an intensive but manageable challenge to America’s one-at-a-time doctor/patient health care system. The CDC, FDA, NIH and state and local public health departments were only needed to dispense solid information per their normal education role, not orders and sweeping regulatory interventions into every nook and cranny of the nation’s economic and social life.
Likewise, the “task force” that was actually needed was not the hideous daily Unreality TV show orchestrated by Fauci, the Scarf Lady and the rest of the Donald’s unabashed enemies among the Federal public health apparatchiks in Washington; rather, it was simply more intensive application of medical care system resources and the proven ability of America’s decentralized health professionals to find, innovate and spread treatments and prophylactics, even in the face of a quasi-novel form of respiratory illness that essentially visited serious medical effects on less than 10% of the population.
In a word, this chart proves that the entire Covid strategy was wrong and unnecessary. Lock, stock and barrel.
Indeed, it would not be going too far to say that the eruption of irrationality and hysteria in America last year most resembled not 1954, when Senator McCarthy set the nation looking for communist moles behind every government desk, or 1919, when the notorious raids of Attorney General Mitchell were rounding up purported Reds in their tens of thousands, but the winter of 1691-1692. That’s when two little girls—Elizabeth Parris and Abigail Williams of Salem, Massachusetts—fell into the demonic activity of fortune-telling, which soon found them getting strangely ill, having fits, spouting gibberish, and contorting their bodies into odd positions.
The rest became history, of course, when a malpracticing local doctor claimed to have found no physical cause for the girls’ problems and diagnosed them being afflicted by the “Evil Hand,” commonly known as witchcraft. Other ministers were consulted, who agreed that the only cause could be witchcraft and since the sufferers were believed to be the victims of a dastardly crime, the community set out to find the perpetrators.
Within no time, three witches who were famously accused —the Parris’ slave, Sarah Good, an impoverished homeless woman and Sarah Osborne, who had defied conventional Puritan society. Many more followed, and as the hysteria spread, hundreds were tried for witchcraft and two dozen hanged.
But there is a lesson in this classic tale that is embarrassing in its verisimilitude. Namely, one of the best academic explanations for the outbreak of seizures and convulsions which fueled the Salem hysteria was a disease called “convulsive ergotism”, which is brought on by ingesting rye grain infected with a fungus that can invade developing kernels of the grain, especially under warm and damp conditions.
During the rye harvest in Salem in 1691 these conditions existed at a time when one of the Puritans’ main diet staples was cereal and breads made of the harvested rye. Convulsive ergotism causes violent fits, a crawling sensation on the skin, vomiting, choking, and, hallucinations—meaning that it was Mother Nature in the ordinary course working her episodically unwelcome tricks, not the “Evil Hand” of a spiritual pathogen, which imperiled the community.
The truth is, in 2020 it was also Mother Nature—likely abetted by the Faucet-sponsored gain-of-function researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology—-who disgorged one of the nastier among ordinary respiratory viruses. Such viruses, of course, have afflicted humankind over the ages, which, in turn, has evolved marvelous adaptive immune systems to cope with and overcome them. So again, there was no Evil Hand sci-fi pathogen at large that was something new under the sun, nor a disease that was extraordinarily lethal for 90% of the population.
In the great scheme of things, therefore, the Covid-19 pandemic has already been recorded as an unfortunate bump on the road to longer and more pleasant lives for Americans and the much of the rest of the world, too. That truth is strikingly depicted in the chart below.
While the all-cause mortality figure for 2020 shown above did not exist when the CDC published this chart, the green line would have depicted it as only a tiny upward blip—of which there have been several during the last 120 years shown below. Indeed, the true analogue is the year 1918 when an estimated 675,000 Americans succumbed to the Spanish Flu from a population (100 million) just 30% of today’s level.
In that case, the green line (all cause deaths) pushed up by nearly 400 per 100,000 population compared to the pre-war baseline (1914). By contrast, the excess rate in 2020 over 2019 was just 118 per 100,000.
And, yes, there is the sad fact of senseless dough-boy deaths on the killing fields of France embedded in these 1918 numbers, but it turns out that upwards of 45% of the conventionally reported 117,000 GI deaths were not from German bullets, but the Spanish Flu that ripped through the massive US training camps that were hastily-assembled after Wilson foolishly declared war in April 1917 with no meaningful standing army to fight it.
So on the true measure of pandemic lethality—deaths from all causes—the Covid-19 was not even in the same ball park as the Spanish Flu. And as the chart also shows, the former occurred way down the green line curve that is actually the ultimate rebuke to today’s on-going Covid-policy disaster.
The US age-adjusted death rate in 2020 (828 per 100,000) was actually 67% lower than it had been in 1918 (2,542 per 100,000) because since then a free capitalist society has gifted the nation with the prosperity and freedom to progress that has ushered in better sanitation, nutrition, shelter, life-styles and medical care. It is those forces which have pushed the green line relentlessly to the lower-right corner of the chart, not the Federales atop their bureaucratic perches in Washington.
At length, perhaps some future historian will need to find the “convulsive ergot” theory of 2020 to explain the Covid-Hysteria because the explanation will not be found in the “science” embedded in what will be a tiny blip in the green line of the chart above. But to do so, they might well be advised to look due westward in the state of Massachusetts from Salem in the east and site of the original hysteria, through Camp Devon in the middle, where the worst of the Spanish Flu breakouts occurred, to Great Barrington on the western edge of the state, where a ray of enlightenment finally burst upon the scene in October 2020.
The Great Barrington Declaration was penned by three fearless world leading epidemiologists—Dr. Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, Dr. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Sanford—and was a powerful antidote to the Evil Hand theory then raging through the MSM and political class of almost every stripe.
At essence, it said the real science was that America was not being attacked by a Grim Reaper visiting death upon one and all regardless of age, health status or physical circumstances, but, instead, was a highly selective respiratory disease variant that honed-in tightly on the immunity-impaired aged and co-morbid. Accordingly, the one-size-fits all Lockdown policy was dead wrong, and what was needed was highly targeted help, protections and treatments for the smallish minority of the vulnerable, which policy would presently lead to the attainment of “herd immunity” and the ultimate extinguishment of the pandemic in the normal way.
Keeping these (across-the-board lockdown) measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.
Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza.
As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity.
The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.
Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent testing of other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized. Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their home. When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be implemented, and is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals.
Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.
On October 4, 2020,
Among the many virtues of this lucid framing of the matter was that it sharply and diametrically differentiated the Covid-19 from the Spanish Flu which had devastated nearby Camp Devon during 1918, as well as much of America and the world.
Thus, subsequent studies of the US have estimated a wide band for the infected population, ranging from about 4 million to upwards of 28 million. That would put the Spanish Flu IFR (infection fatality rate) somewhere between 2.5% and 16.5% against the firmer figure of 675,000 deaths.
But either way, those risk ratios are in a wholly different zip-code than today’s more careful and current estimates from the CDC itself. A few months back it estimated that as of May 19, 2021 about 120 million Americans had been infected by the virus, of which only about 6% had been hospitalized.
At the time the death count stood at about 590,000—so the implied IFR was about 0.5% or only one-fifth to one-thirtieth of the 1918 rate. And, of course, this 0.5% risk of death ratio is based on the expansive WITH Covid counting system stood up by the CDC in March 2020.
Even more importantly, the current CDC figures validate in spades the fundamental thesis of the Great Barrington Declaration in contrast to what is known about age and health status based risks of the Spanish Flu. Startlingly, it is estimated that 50% of the 1918-1919 deaths were among the healthiest 20-40 age population, many of them actually soldiers in training camps like Fort Devon.
By contrast, as of October 2021 only 2% of the WITH Covid mortalities had occurred among the prime 20-40 age population. The mortality curve was the exact inverse of the far more lethal Spanish Flu.
Indeed, the CDC’s own figures leave nothing to the imagination. One size fits all was a horrid mistake because the IFRs tell the very opposite story—the one embedded in the Great Barrington Declaration and its recommended strategy. Here are the IFRs by age cohort using the CDC May infection estimates and the October WITH-Covid death counts:
Infection Fatality Rates By Age Cohort From CDC Data:
- Age 0-17: 0.002%;
- Age 18-49: 0.07%;
- Age 50-64: 0.62%;
- Age 65 plus: 4.44%.
In a word, the risk of death from Covid-19 infection was 2,220 times higher for the over 65 population than for children under 18 years and 63 times greater for the elderly than the main working age population.
Moreover, these figures are based on estimates of the infected population in each age cohort, not the total population. As it happens and logically so, the infection rate per capita is estimated to be much higher by the CDC for the younger and working age population than for the more elderly and presumably less socially mobile. To wit, the infection rate per total population figures are 37% for the 0-17 age cohort, 44% for the working age 18-49 cohort, 32% for the 50-64 age group and just 22% for the 65 and older population.
What this means, of course, is that the WITH-Covid mortality rates for the total population in each age group are vastly different and skewed powerfully higher from young to old. The data below, therefore, is the real “science” of the matter, making the Great Barrington Declaration strategy about as fit for purpose as could be imagined.
WITH-Covid deaths/ Covid Deaths per 100,000/ Normal ( 2019 )All Causes Mortality/100,000:
- Age 0-17: 513 deaths/ 0.7 Covid deaths per 100k/ 50 total deaths per 100k;
- Age 18-29: 3,888 deaths/ 7 Covid deaths per 100k/180 total deaths per 100k;
- Age 30-49: 39,503 deaths/ 47 Covid deaths per 100k/ 408 total deaths per 100k;
- Age 50-64: 125,812 deaths/ 200 Covid deaths per 100k/650 total deaths per 100k;
- Age 65-74: 160,596 deaths/ 510 Covid deaths per 100k/ 1,750 total deaths per 100k;
- Age 75-84: 187,611 deaths/ 1,180 Covid deaths per 100k/ 4,300 total deaths per 100k;
- 85 & above:195,007 deaths/ 2,950 Covid deaths per 100k/ 13,225 total deaths per 100k;
- All Ages: 712,930 deaths/ 217 Covid deaths per 100k/ 715 total deaths per 100k.
The above data are surely dispositive. They show that the very elderly (over 85) suffered the brunt of the mortality impact with a rate per 100,000 that was 4,220 greater than for children under 18 years, 421 times greater than for young people surfing the malls and bars and 63 times greater than for the core working age population 30-49 years of age.
Likewise, the minuscule 0.7 per 100,000 WITH-Covid mortality rate for the under 18 population represented only 2% of the normal all-causes death rate for this cohort—a figure that rose to 10% for the core working age population age 30-49 and 27% and 22% for the 75 and older and 85 and older populations, respectively.
So how did we get we get a policy of universal lockdowns, masking, distancing, testing and now vaxxing that is obviously not fit for purpose?
As we will essay in Part 2, it was based not on “the science”, but on the day #1 statist drive by the Federal public health bureaucracy, the Washington political class and their media allies to foolishly, unnecessarily and impossibly attempt to stop the spread of the virus cold, thereby empowering themselves to excersize heretofore un-imagined power and control over the daily life of Americans at home, school, work, worship and play.
We have called this Progressive Fascism because at bottom it turns the very idea of America upside-down by subordinating the citizen to the state and by attaining the collective good through the centralized exercise of political power rather than the liberty-based endeavors of a free people.

The people of Canada need to realize that their Governments are violating our Constitution —-The Charter Of Rights and Freedoms of the Constitution Act of 1982.
Let’s just take one example in the Province of BC . The Provincial Government has ‘ordered ‘ the people of Northern BC to not conduct worship services . CBC , our Government supported National Broadcaster , says that the Government of BC are ordering :
‘Worship services are being limited to virtual services. Single-person services where people can have quiet reflection alone are permitted.’
Here is the actual health order from BC Northern Health :
‘Worship services: virtual services are required.’
The Charter says in Section 2 that everyone has the
- c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
- (d) freedom of association.
The Charter says in Section 7 that everyone has the right
‘Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.’
The Charter says in Section 15 that everyone has equality rights
‘Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.’
Some contend that Section 1 allows the Governments to by pass the Charter , but let’s read the section
‘The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.’
GOVERNMENTS HAVE NOT DEMONSTRABLY JUSTIFIED WHAT THEY ARE DOING THROUGH LAW , BY REASONABLE LIMITS , IN A FREE AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY !!
WHERE ARE THE FACTS ADVANCED ABOUT WORSHIP AND COVID CASES ?
CANNOT WORSHIPPERS STRATEGICALLY DISTRIBUTED, EVEN MASKED( ALTHOUGH NOT MEDICALLY PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE) BE PROPOSED TO ALLOW MANY TO WORSHIP TOGETHER IN THE SAME BUILDING ? WHY NO GROUP WORSHIP WHATSOEVER, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ?
IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRABLY JUSTIFY GOVERNMENTS ARE FORCED TO LOOK AT ALL EVIDENCE JUST NOT WHAT IS CONVENIENT FOR THEIR NARRATIVE OF A REGION —LIKE CASES AND HOSPITALIZATIONS BASED ON FLAWED PCR TESTS ,
ANY REASONABLE PERSON, NOT JUST JUDGES , CAN SEE THAT GOVERNMENTS HAVE NOT EVEN ATTEMPTED TO JUSTIFY THIR ACTIONS ARROGANTLY IGNORING ALL BUT THEIR OWN FACTS.
THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS !!!
