It’s about the Children

Does anyone know what the biggest illegal trade is?

Believe it or not, human trafficking. Child trafficking has exceeded both gun and drug trafficking.

Does anyone really understand how many children go missing every year? You have to really dig to find the actual numbers, so ask yourself, why are they so well hidden instead of being blasted to everyone everywhere? Then ask, who’s hiding them?

Remember Madeleine McCann? The media blasted her disappearance everywhere, but not the disappearances of the other million-plus missing children. Why do their lives matter less? I guess I never really understood how the media could control so much of what we see and what we don’t. Then there are all the children who are taken into the care system, Child Protective Services, and then disappear. Don’t forget about Haiti and all the children who disappeared there. When Haiti figured out that the children hadn’t died in the disaster but had actually been stolen by the people who were supposed to be protecting them, how much of that was given any attention? How many of you even knew about it?

Here are the reported numbers (please note these disappearances are REPORTED, and let that sink in):

In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.
—Australian Federal Police, National Coordination Centre

In Canada, an estimated 45,288 children are reported missing each year.
—Government of Canada, Canada’s Missing – 2015 Fast Fact Sheet

In Germany, an estimated 100,000 children are reported missing each year.
—Initiative Vermisste Kinder

In India, an estimated 96,000 children go missing each year.
—Bachpan Bachao Andolan, Missing Children of India

In Jamaica, an estimated 1,984 children were reporting missing in 2015.
—Jamaica’s Office of Children’s Registry

In Russia, an estimated 45,000 children were reported missing in 2015.
—Interview with Pavel Astakhov MIA “Russia Today”, Apr. 4, 2016

In Spain, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.
—Spain Joins EU Hotline for Missing Children, Sep. 22, 2010

In the United Kingdom, an estimated 112,853 children are reported missing every year.
—National Crime Agency, UK Missing Persons Bureau

In the United States, an estimated 460,000 children are reported missing every year.
—Federal Bureau of Investigation, NCIC.

As I mentioned above, I find it alarming that when you start searching online for the numbers, you have to really dig. Because instead of the DOJ or law enforcement actually posting numbers and being forthcoming, they are burying them and discrediting anyone who tries to come forward.

With everything going on and how our world is unravelling, a ton of distractions are taking our eyes off a case that mainstream media does not want us to know anything about. Before the weekend, the Maxwell trial began. But the powers that be do not want any eyes on it or any of this case exposed, and they certainly do not want you or me to know of all the horrific details or the vast number of powerful people involved—the politicians, the Hollywood elite, the corporate heads.

This case will expose an awful lot of people in a very evil club, people in the political arenas who control so much of what you do and see. These are powerful people who want you to be distracted by anything else so you take your eyes away from this case. But think of all the children who were victims of this. I have seen reports that there are over two and a half million pages of evidence. If you’re not saying “Holy shit!” at that, you should be. The names that will come out are those of the super wealthy, of the politicians, of the global and Hollywood elites, and many more. We’re going to find out a lot of horrible truths, but I still don’t think we are going to be able to wrap our heads around the atrocities these people have been up to.

As we’re talking about the children, timing is everything. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s new blockbuster expose was just released, and in it he details some horrific illegal experiments on children. I don’t often, if ever, promote another author, but I think The Real Anthony Fauci is a must-read for everyone. Reading this book had me realizing that so much is going on behind the scenes: lies, crimes against children, and so much more. Just click here to order this book, available on audio, ebook, and hardcover.

I’m going to share with you a few quotes from the book:

In 1973 Dr. Stanley Plotkin penned a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine in which he justified his experiments on vulnerable intellectually disabled children, saying they “are humans in form but not in social potential.”

Those sorts of prejudices did nothing to damage his lofty reputation among his colleagues. Vaccinologists consider the annual Stanley Plotkin Award the Nobel Price of vaccinology. In 2019, the British Medical Journal called Plotkin “the Godfather of vaccines.”

These homegrown American medical Mengeles most often targeted impoverished American Indians and Blacks in Africa, the Caribbean, and in the United States as their laboratory rats.

There are many hidden secrets. Does anyone remember the forty-year Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, which began in 1932? I for one knew nothing of it, and the black population were the guinea pigs. It’s horrifying. If we only had some idea of the vulnerable people who have become prey to those in positions of power.

More quotes from the book follow:

In 1989, the CDC conducted lethal experiments with a hazardous measles vaccine on Black children in Cameroon, Haiti and South-Central Los Angeles, killing dozens of little girls before halting the program. CDC did not tell “volunteers” that they were participating in an experiment.

In 2014, another CDC whistleblower, the agency’s senior vaccine safety scientist, Dr. William Thompson, disclosed that top CDC officials had forced him and four other senior researchers to lie to the public and destroy data that showed disproportionate vaccine injuries—including a 340 percent elevated risk for autism—in Black male infants who received the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine on schedule.

One of the most chilling passages in this book for me is the following:

Scheff described how Dr. Fauci’s NIAID and his Big Pharm partners turned Black and Hispanic foster kids into lab rats, subjecting them to torture and abuse in a grim parade of unsupervised drug and vaccine studies: “This former convent houses a revolving stable of children who’ve been removed from their own homes by the Agency for Child Services [ACS]. These children are Black, Hispanic, and poor. Many of their mothers had a history of drug abuse and have died. Once taken into ICC, the children become subjects of drug trials sponsored by [Dr. Anthony Fauci’s] NIAID (National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease, a division of NIH), NICHD (the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development) in conjunction with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies—Glaxo-SmithKline, Pfizer, Genentech, Chiron/Biocine and others.

Sheff continued, “The drugs being given to the children are toxic—they’re known to cause genetic mutation, organ failure, bone marrow death, bodily deformations, brain damage, and fatal skin disorders. If the children refuse the drugs, they’re held down and force fed. If the children continue to resist, they’re taken to Columbia Presbyterian hospital, where a surgeon puts a plastic tube through their abdominal wall into their stomachs. From then on, the drugs are injected directly into their intestines.

Vera Sharav spent years investigating Dr. Fauci’s torture chambers as part of her lifelong mission to end cruel medical experimentation on children. Sharav told me, “Fauci just brushed all those dead babies under the rug. They were collateral damage in his career ambitions. They were throw-away children.” Sharav said that at least eighty children died in Dr. Fauci’s Manhattan concentration camp and accused NIAID and its partners of disposing of children’s remains in mass graves.

In fact, in 2004, the BBC created a heartbreaking documentary, Guinea Pig Kids. You can watch it here. 

The Associate Press reported that the scope of Dr. Fauci’s experiments was much wider, extending beyond New York to “at least seven states.” Among them: Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Colorado, Texas. AP reported that more than four dozen different studies were involved. The foster children ranged from infants to late teens.

I will leave you with this last excerpt, which has me wondering how all those in power are so willing to just look away:

During the decades since Dr. Fauci took over NIAID, he has sanctioned drug companies to experiment on at least fourteen thousand children, many of them Black and Hispanic orphans living in foster homes. He permitted these companies to operate without oversight or accountability. Under Dr. Fauci’s laissez faire rubric, these companies systematically abused and, occasionally, killed children.

Dr. Fauci presided over these atrocities, collaborating with pharmaceutical company researchers and winking at their loose definitions of “informed consent” and “volunteer.” Instead of looking out for the best interests of children, Dr. Fauci gave outlaw drug makers free rein to torture vulnerable children behind closed doors, with neither parental permission nor requisite oversight from child welfare authorities.

It really is about the children, the most vulnerable in our society. They don’t have the voice to stand up for their rights, and when they are in the system, unfortunately, far too often, no one will believe them.

Finding Home

Finding Home

What happens when a family loses everything and has no place to go?

Terrance Mack has a wife and two young boys. Never in a million years did he expect to find his family living on the streets, with no home, no jobs, in a position where everything they owned has been taken from them in the cruelest of ways. As the family struggles to stay together, they encounter a hard and unfriendly way of life, having to move from town to town, being harassed by the police and by locals, and confronting danger each day. Living on the streets is nothing as he expected.

All Terrance wants for his family is for someone to give them a chance—a chance for a new beginning, a roof over their heads, the opportunity to once again build a life without constant fear, having to look over their shoulders, feeling as if the rug will continue to be yanked out from under them again and again.

The worst is seeing the light in his wife’s eyes slowly diminish, along with the hope they once had. Terrance carries a constant weight, and every day brings a new challenge as doors close and they’re forced to move on. Even though they’ve stayed together, finding a place to stay has forced the family into survival mode, living one day at a time. The dignity Terrance once took for granted has become something he struggles to hold on to as he dreams of one day being able to have a peaceful night’s sleep.

If you are unjabbed, you are not welcome for Christmas.

That is what I heard from someone whose family had issued the ultimatum. Then another friend walked over to the house of a neighbor he’d known for years and thought was a friend, and that neighbor said to him that he wasn’t welcome in unless he disclosed his you-know-what status.

Friendship ended.

Then there was a husband who said his wife was insisting he get the you-know-what, and he wasn’t having any of it. He was visibly bothered, upset, and the advice he was given was that if his wife couldn’t honor his bodily autonomy and his right to do his own homework and choose what he put in his body, then he needed to ask himself what his marriage was based on. Someone then quite bluntly told him to get a divorce lawyer, because his marriage was over.

A lot of stories as of late about two sides being pitted against each other, driven by fear. All of this reminds me of a time six years ago at a convention when someone told me that when you’re a child, you’re born into a family, and you don’t get to pick them, but when you’re an adult, you do. Think about it, because it couldn’t be any more relevant than right now. Friendships and families are dividing and falling apart, but new ones will also appear among the likeminded.

I don’t know about you, but I have never wished ill or harm on anyone during this entire craziness, yet I’ve lost count of the number of those who are double you-know-what who have openly and increasingly, with a lot of hostility, wished harm on people who are not. Now, you’re going to have to read between the lines here, because when I talk about the jabardoo, remember that people on social media platforms are being silenced. Remember my posts about all the doctors and lawyers who have come forward to sound the alarm, but only a select few are listening?

Back to family. If you have family who are insisting you put something in your body you’re not comfortable with, it’s time to find your new family, ones who respect you for you and would never try to force anything on you against your will. Families may be divided. Many people have woken up and are now questioning the narrative and the 0.002 percent chance of dying from something that the media and the government have brainwashed people into believing is basically so deadly that people will be dying in the streets. I’ve said this before: I know no one who has been sick, hospitalized, or gravely ill from this. But I do know some who have died and been seriously injured from the double you-know-what.

It took me a few months once I realized the media and the politicians were manipulating data—and, worse, getting away with it and outright lying to the people. But what do mainstream media and social platforms do? Well, they have censored and blocked everyone who has been injured by this. No mainstream media outlet will show their story. On social media channels, as soon as someone posts a video, their post is taken down. Yes, a few see, but the majority of people unfortunately have been brainwashed by mainstream media and can’t see what is going on in the shadows. I’m not sure at this point that anything will wake them up. I have family who refuse to question anything. I have family who are convinced the government would never lie and mainstream media would never manipulate facts, that they, the media, are all the truthtellers they need.

Remember Senator Ron Johnson, who held a conference for all the vaccine injured and allowed them to share their story? Well, it didn’t take long before his social media accounts were taken down. But thankfully, so many others out there are reposting the videos somewhere else. In case you missed it, here is one of many links.

I know I’ve talked about the narrative, but at the same time, I think finally, after what seems like coming on two years, it is beginning to crumble. But still, one of the biggest walls so many are coming up against is that if you go against it, you will be silenced and discredited. And the media—or, as I like to call them, the criminal, corporate, lying mainstream media, who one day, I believe, will all go to hell—well, they deflect and silence you. And then in case someone reaches too many people, they’ll gaslight someone and create a lie against that person so people perceive them badly. I don’t like to say I’ll never do something again, but I don’t think I will ever trust mainstream media again, or all the actors who pose as journalists. I’ve asked myself a few times how these people actually sleep at night.

What are the side effects people are starting to report from the you-know-what? They include death, blood clots, infertility, miscarriage, Bell’s palsy, cancer, inflammatory conditions, autoimmune disease, early onset dementia, convulsions, anaphylaxis, inflammation of the heart, and antibody-dependent enhancement leading to death. This includes children ages twelve to seventeen. This list of adverse reactions was provided by a group of doctors, one of many that have come forward and been silenced by the media, by the politicians.

One of the independent media sites went undercover at popup clinics to hear what the people giving the you-know-what are saying, or rather not saying:

One thing for everyone to understand and keep in mind is when someone is disabled, what happens to the family? If anything, I will leave you with this. I grew up in a middle-class family, but when I was thirteen, my father was diagnosed with a type of brain cancer with no survival outcomes. Yet in came an experimental drug which, according to the specialists, worked on him and one other person. Everyone else died. Don’t get excited, because after his brain tumor was removed and he took all the drugs, and then another tumor was removed a few years later, followed by more drugs, a man who supported his family became a man incapacitated and bedridden for his remaining thirteen years.

My father had suddenly gone from earning a decent income to being unable to function, because when you are suddenly disabled, your income ends for you and your family. My mother was suddenly his nursemaid and had to figure out how to earn an income and keep a roof over our heads. Experimental drugs left him staggering, with seizures. Why am I sharing this? Be very careful to question everything. I hear a lot of voices out there, especially in positions of power, who tell you not to ask or question what is in the you-know-what or do your own homework. But it’s imperative that you do your own research, that you question everything. If anything else, please watch this one video of someone every one of you should know and listen to his story.

Standing up to tyranny has consequences when you’re forced to do it alone. But what if you’re only eight years old?

So many out there are scared to take a stand and use their voices because they are afraid to do it alone, afraid of the consequences, of being arrested, of having to fight back. They look for the easy way to just comply. Well, how about an eight-year-old who has been suspended from school thirty-eight times for refusing to wear a mask because she alone took a stand against the school board and their ridiculous mask mandate? In case you missed my other posts, please go and do your own research, and turn off the mainstream media, which continues to lie without any scientific evidence to back up anything.

If you want to know who the mainstream media are working for, look at who owns them and who signs their paychecks. The information is out there. Doctors and lawyers have been standing up and speaking out, filing lawsuits, presenting actual scientific evidence that goes against the mainstream media and the politicians’ narratives. Many are now listening, doing their own research, but there are still people asleep out there. Please wake up and know that there is hope on the horizon.

In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order in July that prohibited mask mandates in schools. But of course it wasn’t that easy, because what followed were legal battles from those who were determined to keep kids in masks. On September 15th, a federal judge upheld the executive order: No masks on our kids. They are standing firm, even rejecting an appeal by people determined to push the fear button.

Fear is how tyrants keep their power.

Fear is how they divide us.

At least the Florida governor is standing up for kids. But what has surprised me is that it took an eight-year-old who wasn’t willing to comply to take a stand against a school board. She even called those adults out as criminals, telling them they were breaking the law and would be going to jail. Good for her! Again, she is eight years old, a strongminded, fearless young girl who has been suspended from the second grade thirty-eight times for violating that school district’s mask mandate because she believed it was wrong. For a child so young to stand up and speak is a credit to her parents, and for me it’s an inspiration, because apparently she has some critical thinking skills. This is a reminder that critical thinking is something we’re all born with, but it seems to be stripped away, and what is taught is compliance.

Now Fiona’s parents have created a website for her, outlining all the suspensions and the details of her experience so we can understand what this little girl has been forced to endure. On September 22, 2021, standing up before the board members, she told those adults deciding her fate that being suspended was not going to change her mind and that she has the right not to wear a mask. She was the one getting punished, yet the adults on the school board were the ones breaking the law. She went on to inform those adults that she hoped they would all go to jail for doing that to her.

I believe many will be going to jail when the fallout happens, because tyranny always crumbles. When you read the details on the website, you see that this little girl has done all her school work at home, yet adults are retaliating against her because she’s not complying, so they have slapped yet another punishment on her by failing her. Please listen to this little girl who is standing up for what she believes in and speaking up when so many adults are preferring to just go along with everything and stay quiet. Here is her video. She appeared beside Governor DeSantis in an interview, terrified. Hell, I’d be terrified and shaking, but she did it. One thing to note in this interview, as pointed out by the governor, is how many of these school board officials using a heavy hand are themselves walking around and congregating without masks.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, masks are about compliance.

In this interview, Fiona brings up something everyone should be talking about, which is the germs you’re breathing in from dirty masks. This is something I’ve pointed out to people around me, but unfortunately too many are still not connecting the dots. Again, I keep saying it, “Do your own research”. Only because of pressure from the DeSantis administration has this school district now decided to drop its mandatory mask requirement.

What really bothered me was hearing about a little girl with down syndrome who has an enlarged tongue, whose mask was tied on with nylon rope so she couldn’t take it off. The mask became soaked with saliva. Ask yourself how well she would have been able to breathe. When the parents went to the school, they found out it had happened not just that day but every day for six weeks. The school had just forgotten to untie it and take it off that day—you know, to hide the evidence. Parents of special needs kids have been speaking up well before this about some of the atrocities their kids endure in schools. But back to this little girl. What did the teacher and principal say to the parents about the tied-on mask? “The school board told us all students had to wear masks.” Here is the video.

Remember, when the day comes when people are held accountable for their part in this, saying you were just doing your job and following orders won’t save you. Standing up to tyranny comes with a cost, but so does not speaking out or standing up.

Lock up one bad guy and five more are waiting in the wings to step in and take over where he left off.

Just ask anyone who grew up under communism. I’m thankful to those who have immigrated from countries of tyranny and are here now, speaking up, trying to teach those of us who have never lived under tyranny and unfortunately don’t recognize it when it’s right in front of us. Thankfully, those who recognize the talking points and the narrative of dissent see clearly how dangerous it is that our rights are slowly being stripped away. They are speaking up, but they have become frustrated with us because we have never had to live under communism. Listen, please, because those who have fled such countries and lived under tyranny recognize everything that is happening now, every right that is slowly, one by one, being taken from us—and not just taken. We allowed this to happen.

Just this week, as more and more people are beginning to wake up, I listened to a story taken from a poem, “First They Came,” by Pastor Martin Neimöller. The way the story was told to me really hit home and made me realize that we find ourselves in a dire situation. The story concerns the Second World War and Auschwitz. First they came for the old people, the elderly, the grandparents. One man said that when it happened, he saw it and said, “Well, I’m not old. This has nothing to do with me.” Then they came for the disabled, and again he said, as he shrugged, “I’m not disabled, so this has nothing to do with me.” After the disabled, they came for the Jews. Again, he said, “Well, I’m not Jewish. This doesn’t affect me.” But then they came for him, and unfortunately, when they came for him, he had no one around to protect him, because they were all gone.

This is a reminder about standing together. I made my decision long ago that I will never blindly follow along. I will never stand by while the innocent are persecuted or taken advantage of. I know many who are done with the restrictions that never end, so they’ve taken a vaccine and signed up for a passport so they can travel, go to a movie, or go out for dinner. But remember that history always repeats itself unless we learn from it. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I have children, and one of them is autistic and can’t defend himself. The vulnerable cannot defend themselves against tyranny or even against wolves in sheep’s clothing who pretend to be well-meaning people yet blindly follow orders and shrug off the violation of a person’s rights.

Remember, if you don’t stand up to this, no one will be left to stand up for you when they come for you. You may not be affected right now, but the narrative will change again, as it has done repeatedly, and you may find yourself suddenly having to make a choice that goes against your moral fibre. People are standing up who didn’t in the beginning, who maybe said this didn’t affect them, but they’ve now found themselves in a position where this system of tyranny has come for them. I’m talking about blue-collar workers, nurses, doctors, firefighters, pilots, military personnel, and police. Many are now standing up for their rights because someone is coming for them. In the beginning, there were only a few voices. Now there are more. If you believe you can stay under the radar and follow every order as your rights are stripped away and somehow be okay with it, there will be a day where they come for you. And that happens by blindly handing over your free will, your power, to leaders who have never earned that right.

One question everyone should ask is when has any government in the history of mankind ever cared about us or our children? Think about it. It’s never okay to make excuses and sacrifice one person because it doesn’t affect you, or to blindly believe what leaders and the media tell you is for the greater good. Critical thinking is something schools don’t even teach. I’ve heard from a few people who’ve said outright that they have no time to research, and mainstream media tells them everything they need to know, and they will not consider anything outside of it.

Would it surprise you to know that with MSM (mainstream media), what you’re subjected to is called “the echo chamber effect”? If this is the first time you’ve heard about it, I encourage everyone to research it, but a brief outline is that you, the viewer, are shown only content that will reinforce your current political and social views without ever challenging you to think differently. Please, question everything.

That brings us to the current state of chaos, to the doctors who have sacrificed their careers to speak up. I know I’ve outlined this before in other blogs, but the number of people who don’t believe that a doctor is not allowed to question the safety of vaccines is surprising. Let me write it again, and then read it back to yourself. The college of physicians prohibits a doctor from questioning the safety of vaccines, and right now they are not allowed to question the narrative. The first thing everyone should be doing is asking questions, because a doctor not being allowed to question something is absolutely absurd. Every doctor should be questioning the safety of everything. When I go to the doctor, I expect them to have done their research. I am not a science experiment, and neither are my children. Doctors have spoken out because of deaths, adverse reactions, serious side effects, and a lack of science. MSM will have you believe otherwise, but the science, the actual data, has not been provided.

Doctors, the ones who have spoken up, have been completely discredited by mainstream media and politicians because apparently, they are going against the talking points. There seems to be a written narrative they are to follow, and if they dare to speak up, their hospital privileges are taken away and their medical licenses are suddenly in jeopardy. The only thing I expect from a doctor is my personal safety. They are to look after my and my children’s best interests, not the government, not the mainstream media. No government body has authority over my health or my body or my children. At the same time, when you are diagnosed with a serious illness, do you really take only one doctor’s word for it without doing your own research? In case you aren’t aware, because I had no idea, doctors have no training in vaccines. Ask them. They maybe received half a day’s exposure to the information in medical school, if that!

This is about politics and money!

Here is a great interview with a doctor who put the public first and not his job, and now his medical license is in jeopardy. Please listen, and then go and do your own research.

There is right and wrong, and right now it seems as if the world is coming to a head, as so many have been willing to follow along blindly and give up their freedoms one by one without questioning the narrative. I’ve said it before many times and I will keep saying it: Mainstream media do not do credible, real journalism. Instead, they push the narrative of the many corrupt leaders.

Ask yourself about the people standing up against tyranny for their rights and yours. Unfortunately, some people treat them as if they are the enemy because of the uncomfortable truths they’re speaking. Remember, do your own research, and question everything, but don’t blindly believe something because a politician who has never cared about you or your children says it’s true. Those people who are speaking up, protesting, standing up for their rights, whom the MSM and politicians are trying to vilify, many of them will be your family and your friends. When this does come to a head and blows up, and tyrannies always do, ask yourself where you’ll be in the fallout, standing in the corner on the side with the corrupt government and media or with your family, friends, and community? Do you choose freedom of choice and bodily autonomy, or will you be forever alienated from family because you tried to force your will onto someone who is openly questioning the narrative?

In case no one saw this, because MSM will not ever show it, Senator Ron Johnson convened a press conference for the vaccine injured who have been silenced. You can watch it here, and please do, because these people and their suffering have been silenced by mainstream media and the medical authorities who are supposed to protect us.

Remember this when they come for you: All it takes is one single uncorrupt judge to end the tyranny, one single sheriff to arrest a criminal politician, and one single mother to stand up to corrupt school boards about the insanity being taught and hurting our children.

Stop believing everything the TV is telling you. Start doing your own research, and stop saying it doesn’t affect you just because they haven’t come for you yet.

There are times especially as of late I have felt as if I’ve stepped into a dystopian novel, and this week as I’m deep into research for next week’s blog I found myself going back through my blogs right to the beginning of the pandemic, you know when all this craziness began. I did this for two reasons: 1) because in the beginning, even though the numbers never added up, it was important for me to figure out why I wasn’t asking more questions and 2) exactly where my head was. This blog was written June 1, 2020, but as I reread it, I feel it’s more pertinent than ever. Remember to ask questions, don’t always believe the narrative, and ask yourself how many decades has it been since real journalism happened.

Is living in fear the answer?

My kids have told me very matter-of-factly for going on ten days now, I believe, to stop watching the news—all of it. I’ve been instructed not to turn on the TV for updates from any news stations, not to check the daily updates from the government on the internet, and not to read or listen to all the news stations and leaders talking about anything to do with this craziness going on. Why? Because without my knowledge, even when I wasn’t sitting in front of the TV, the daily updates steeped in doom and gloom and fear were actually starting to have an effect on me.

It began to affect my writing, my productivity, my good night’s sleep, because sensationalism, which has become the norm in news and reporting, is meant to scare the pants off you and get a rise out of you. Are all the facts being reported? Everyone can argue on the facts, but when you start asking yourself questions and then start asking questions of those in charge, either you’re going to get answers or you’re going to be blown off with some line about how those in charge know more, which is meant to subdue the masses and appease you. Well, no. Everyone has the right to ask questions. I’ve taught my kids this.

Now let me ask you a question that was asked of me a few weeks ago. If you were given a life-threatening diagnosis from a doctor, would you just accept what he or she said, or would you go and get two or three or four different doctors’ opinions? Would you not do your own research? I would.

Not everyone is going to handle things the same way, but I would never take one doctor’s word for something, because they do make mistakes. They may not give you all the information or might say, “I know best. Listen to me.” But that steps on the toes of free will, and not every professional is going to agree on the same course of treatment. This isn’t about leaders everywhere; this is about the facts now being reported everywhere every day. When you turn on a news station and unknowingly start to feel outrage, anger, fear, all those heightened emotions that are meant to get a rise out of you, you may want to ask yourself, “What’s that about?”

Even though I now have no idea of the state of things as they’re being reported, I can honestly tell you that having a good night’s sleep and being able to work without that doom and gloom and fear hanging over my head, without worrying about what’s going to happen to my kids and the rest of the world, makes me feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. When you’re watching the news, any station, how often do you feel drawn into those heightened emotions, the horror, the fear, the outrage? When did journalism abandon its mission of reporting all the objective facts?

How am I feeling right now? Fantastic, happy, rested, productive. I have searched out information from credible sources—you know, the ones the media doesn’t use. Because I don’t remember the last time I turned on the news to find that they were questioning the validity of their sources and doing real journalism, digging for the truth and actually reporting on it. I don’t know about you, but I do know, from the people around me and my community, that living in fear is never the answer.

The Monday Blog & a new audio release

Several months back, something was said that had me sitting upright. I don’t remember specifically what it was, but I knew for a fact that it was a lie. And when that happens, the carefully spun behavioral management spell that controls the mob mentality was broken for me. I realized with horror then, as I started doing my own research, asking my own questions, and refusing to be blown off or led around by a leash anymore, after seeing the deflecting for what it was, that something quite sinister was going on.

Having an autistic child means having to fight a system that works against you. One of the things I saw and experienced that the average person might not was the underhandedness of governments, politicians, and school boards, who have a magical way of spinning things and have mastered the art of smoke and mirrors. During my long journey of having my son diagnosed with autism, digging into the why and the how and then fighting to get him help, one of the hardest things to overcome was the lack of support from my community and family because it did not affect them.

When we are not affected or our jobs and finances aren’t threatened, we don’t notice issues in our peripherals. People who weren’t affected didn’t have to put out money for therapy or fight and advocate and stand their ground for my child. Of course I got understanding and sympathy from people around me, but the problem wasn’t under their roofs and didn’t affect their lives. Nor were they pounding on the doors I was or facing the political spin of people saying one thing but doing the opposite. You may have heard, especially as of late, the advice to find your people, find your community. That was what I had to do when I was finding my voice and speaking up for my child, which I did.

I found my likeminded community of parents.

As you’ve probably read in my other blog posts, one of the things I faced when battling these politicians was the reality that they had their own agenda, and standing up for autistic children wasn’t part of their mandate. That reality united me with other parents who faced the same closed doors, the same smoke and mirrors. Remember, while one voice may be drowned out, many voices are heard. One of the things that united my group of parents was that we were using real science backed by actual, verifiable data. We were advocating for real treatments that worked, not experiments—which, by the way, politicians did not want to see back then.

Back to the early intervention treatment that we fought for and paid for out of pocket. We hired our own professionals. We trained our people and became part of the program, understanding how early intervention and behavior modification works. To give you a basic understanding, early intervention treatment means basically rewiring the child’s brain via repetition. It’s like a script: You create a program with steps that are broken down and taught over and over. Repetition of a skill reteaches the brain so that it understands how to do something or learns what is true and what is false. You keep doing something until the skill is mastered, modifying the behavior with rewards.

Outside of early intervention treatment for autism, some people use psychological manipulation such as punishments, rescinding privileges, and threats. People respond to these based on what narratives they believe. People in power may reward people for certain behaviors and punish them for others. This is an example of the extremes, but when you recognize what’s happening and start doing your own research, you can see past the dangerous psychological behavior modification, because your brain will not have been rewired to perceive something as normal. Now, if you’re like me, you’ve already started doing your own research. I will never follow the mass media, which is a tool for the politicians to get their message across without providing evidence or actual scientific data, instead manipulating numbers, playing on fear, and outright lying. The government is now paying mainstream media millions of dollars, which, you guessed it, you and I, our kids, and their kids are on the hook for.

If you listen to all the mainstream media, they’re saying the same thing, as if they’re reading a script. Credible journalists are supposed to expose the lies and the truth for the people, not the government. But what are they doing instead? Discrediting and outright lying, spinning the truth. Have any professionals tried to speak up? One example of a public figure with a big following is Joe Rogan, who called Sanjay Gupta from CNN out and got him to admit to a lie. Here’s the video.

Another example is the mayor of Hudson, Ohio, who, frankly, is one of very few politicians standing up for the people. The local politicians in my area are not answering emails or responding. They are basically collecting a salary they haven’t earned, hiding like the cowardly shills they are. But back to Mayor Craig Shubert of Hudson, who was approached by parents about the sexually explicit and inappropriate grooming material being put into the hands of their kids.

When I heard about the way he went after the school board, who had basically shut out the parents, and school officials who had gone to the Feds to try to take more rights away from parents, I sat down with my daughter, who you all know graduated in June of this year, and asked her about the sexual content they were teaching in school. I was taken aback, because that was my first time hearing how explicit and inappropriate it was. I have no idea when this started in school. She didn’t tell me about the curriculum at the time because she was embarrassed, but when I talked with her about it now, she said it made her so uncomfortable that she put her earbuds in and turned her music on so she couldn’t hear it. I also sat down this past week with my son, who graduated in 2020, and he told me that his school had forced him to read explicit material containing graphic homosexual acts that made him uncomfortable.

A few of you may be way ahead of me, one of the many parents who are standing up and demanding that school boards and districts stop this. But school board officials are pushing back, trying to label parents domestic terrorists in retaliation. Many of these officials believe they can teach our kids what they want and we have no say. But when Mayor Shubert found out exactly what kinds of sexually explicit material the schools were teaching, he went to a judge he knew, who confirmed the material was disgusting child pornography.

Parents have been vilified, and if you’ve been paying attention, their rights are being stripped away one by one behind the scenes in a very sinister and devious way by officials who don’t have the moral fiber to hold the positions they do. When Mayor Shubert showed up and spoke at the school board meeting, he demanded their resignations, and if they refused, they would face criminal charges. The parents cheered and applauded. Here is a link to a video of the mayor at the school board meeting, because it is heartwarming when an elected official actually stands up in the face of tyranny.

Did the school board resign after the mayor’s demand? No. To date, they have refused. Many parents have pulled their kids from school, but not everyone can do that. Every parent out there, remember no one has the right to undermine you as a parent—even though we are seeing the greatest pushback I have ever seen from politicians who feel they can strip away our rights one by one, and it seems they are getting bolder and bolder and can break the law and get away with it. It’s heartwarming to see that at least one mayor, one public official, will stand up to protect our children. In this case, at least, racial biases are also gone, because the only camps we have are the people going along with things and everyone else standing up together and saying, “Hell, no!”

Does everyone know what happened in December, 2020?

If you are like the majority of the population of the world, and you have no idea, an initiative called the Trusted News Initiative was put forward to control the media, the facts, and the narrative. At times, if you really listen, it seems as if every large MSM outlet is reading from the same script.

Now, how about gaslighting? Do you understand what gaslighting means, and would you recognize it if it happened to you? Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse that has been used by powerful people as a tactic to gain more power. It makes the average person or victim question his or her own reality. Worse, anyone and everyone is susceptible to gaslighting. Managers, abusers, dictators, narcissists, sociopaths, cult leaders, and control freaks use gaslighting slowly over a period of time so their unsuspecting victims don’t even realize it’s happening. For some, it can take months or years to realize they have been lied to.

Maybe someone says something or something happens to you and your family, and it leaves you reeling, flung into a WTF moment. When a powerful person who has authority in your life or whom you look to for direction insists strongly, with such conviction, on a false version of events, you and others listening start to doubt. You may even doubt your own inner voice or go against your own beliefs, questioning your own memory of events, your reality, and sometimes your sanity. That is not a good thing, but it can happen to anyone.

Gaslighting is a common tactic, but the kicker is that realizing it’s happening to you is your first step in getting out from under it. However, sadly, most people have no idea it’s even happening to them, because it involves a slow manipulation of your mindset, controlling the information you receive. Now, you may be saying to yourself that you’re smarter than that, but look back in your life. Have you ever realized that you believed someone’s false narrative about someone or something only to learn months or years down the road that it wasn’t true?

If you have, don’t beat yourself up. I know I’ve believed nefarious things only to learn that they were lies. That feeling of being suckered can leave you confused, anxious, and, believe it or not, doubting yourself. Only you know what’s best for you! You should never, ever not trust yourself. There is a saying that it’s really easy to get caught up in the mob mentality. It’s taken me a lot of years, but, terrified or not, I will never agree with a mob mentality when deep down, something doesn’t feel right to me. I am not afraid to stand alone or question a narrative, yet I know many family and friends who will never stand up to question something a powerful person is saying.

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to be the only one speaking up and refusing to go along with the crowd. Never, ever doubt that little voice inside you that tells you when something is wrong. And never, ever allow someone you know, whether family, friend, or leader, to bully you into something you don’t believe in. You have rights, and you have the right to get your own information and do your own research.

Now back to gaslighting. You know who has mastered this skill? Politicians who have become adept at psychological manipulation, covertly sowing seeds of doubt in their followers or even a targeted group of people. This form of psychological warfare is something covert military forces use on their enemies. They’re trained in forms of slow manipulation that can leave you questioning your perceptions, becoming reliant on the abuser for your own sense of reality.

What happens to victims of gaslighting who are deliberately and systematically fed a stream of false information or a false narrative over and over? They question what they know to be true. Over time, abusers who are adept at psychological warfare will learn how and when to make their manipulation of the facts more complex, compelling, powerful, and influential—so much so that their followers can no longer see the truth, because now the only truth they believe is at the hands of the master manipulator. This relationship can’t exist without an imbalance of power.

Now let’s put this in perspective. In order for gaslighting to be effective, you must hand power over to someone. In an emergency, instead of taking the information and seeking your own sources to verify the truth, you look to a leader to come up with a plan and order people to follow it. Gaslighters such as politicians take advantage of this to attack others, and unfortunately, especially as of late, they’ve tossed out hatred, knowing they have absolute impunity because of the enormous power they have. When was it that they could suddenly break any and all laws and not be touched, even laws created to protect people?

Politicians have become bolder and bolder, as if they are unstoppable. When you are a victim of gaslighting, you become fearful and don’t fight back. What happens if you do fight back and stand up to an abuser? Your ability to put food on the table for your family and keep a roof over your head is threatened. You could be fired, publicly attacked and discredited, ridiculed, and even threatened with a permanent loss of livelihood. Your family could be threatened, your money could be taken from your accounts, and you could lose your freedom.

Now, this is where it gets bizarre. When called out, a gaslighter will try to weave a more intricate web, and when his control slips, that powerful person can become nasty and ramp up the campaign until the victim feels as if she is being viciously punched in the face over and over. The main objective is to grind the victim into the ground so she remembers her place, with the reminder that she has no rights and is not in control. Think about it. We have seen cult leaders who were so skillful that they managed to guide their followers into a collective death despite those of us yelling out at them to wake up and not drink the Kool-Aid. Then the story changes. When you’re under the spell of an abuser, there is a point where you can’t hear anything but what the abuser is saying, not from your family, friends, or anyone else. Because you believe there is no way that gaslighter could be lying to you.

Back to December 2, 2020, and the Trusted News Initiative. Even before Covid happened, there was rising distrust in the mainstream media, so various media organizations, big tech companies, and governments got together and agreed to block the spread of information. The idea was to counter people who dared to question the narrative. Those people were gaining traction on social media, and, according to the government, were spreading dangerous information. If you now listen to the news and find they’re saying the same things, you may have thought that they’re reading from the same script. Tragically, the Trusted News Initiative has become a tool for the suppression of lifesaving information, as outlined by lawyers representing a number of doctors both vaccinated and unvaccinated. The link is here.

I’m not going to highlight the details, because the lawyer has so eloquently outlined the kind of gaslighting that has transpired. As I’ve said in my other posts, history, history, history. Pay attention to the spinning of language in the claim of tackling the rise of misinformation only to censor dissenting voices, which brings about the death of freedom and democracy. Remember your rights.

And this morning a copy of the “Open Letter” from the Okanagan Health Professionals attached. This letter is also accessible on the Canada Health Alliance website; here is the link

Only you have the answers for yourself. Learn to question everything, and if anything else, remember one saying: “Follow the money.”

You know what Monday means…

And today it’s a long one. Seems fitting with Facebook and Instagram going down.

History has taught us a great many things. Being born in a free country, I have never lived under tyranny, where a dictator could strip away the rights of an individual with the flick of a pen. But history teaches us that if we don’t learn from the horrors of the past and teach our children, a once free nation can suddenly see its rights stripped away, and this isn’t something that happens overnight.

It can take years to direct and maneuver the average person, whose only focus is doing a job, buying a house, getting the kids to school, putting food on the table, and maybe planning for a vacation. The average person does not want to be involved in politics, nor do we follow the harebrained schemes our elected officials are undertaking. Many of us don’t know how our taxes are being used or abused or how our rights and personal freedoms, unbeknownst to us, are freely handed over. We question nothing.

When you elect someone, you do so in the hopes that he or she won’t turn out to be a lying scumbag. But politicians want power. Enough said. Usually, you vote believing the candidates will live up to every promise, yet none ever do. Right now, it seems everyone I know is saying that something not quite right is going on. Another thing I’ve heard is that I haven’t been paying attention, much like the frog in boiling water. Everyone has heard this: If you put a frog in cold water and slowly bring it to a boil, the frog will stay in the water and slowly boil to death, but if you have the water already boiling, not a chance in hell will you get the frog to stay in the rapidly boiling water!

My daughter was doing some history research recently, and one of the things she brought up was that Adolf Hitler has never really been understood. When I was growing up, I knew nothing of war, history, or genocide, because even though my grandfather fought in the war, it was never spoken of. In the early 1970s, when I was in grade school, I watched a TV miniseries on the holocaust. And yes, I watched the entire miniseries as a young kid, and I survived, so all is good. It opened my eyes to another world, a not so friendly world, outside my very white suburbia. I’ll never forget the horror I felt while watching, wondering how the people of Germany could have stood by and allowed this to happen—and, worse, why no one talked about it.

So when my daughter was researching the years before the most horrific Nazi atrocities, I wondered how many people were involved and what the reason was behind the madness. There were so many factors at play before the mass genocide, plans that involved many people before the state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews began. First, the Nazis had to have politicians in power. Adolf Hitler was appointed and turned Germany from a weak new democracy into a one-party dictatorship. At the same time, fear and hatred of Jews had existed in Europe for centuries. The Nazis—or we can call them the German government, cast on the Jews a wide variety of stereotypes, spanning from complaints about their “behavior” to accusations that Jews were the source of disease and social injustice, to name a few. To the Nazis, this made what they were doing and going to do okay.

Many Germans were willing to tolerate Nazi hate speech because they believed the government was restoring the country’s status as an international power. The government also promised to restore Germany economically after years of inflation and economic depression and to end the years of political instability and violence the country had experienced before Hitler was appointed. Hitler was a very strong and popular leader, yet the government economically, politically, and socially marginalized the Jewish community over a period of years with virtually no public protest. All of this was accomplished by millions of individual decisions made by ordinary people who chose to actively participate or stand by and do absolutely nothing as their neighbors were persecuted and murdered.

How many of you now, knowing history, have ever asked yourself whether you would have stood by and done nothing? Would you have spoken up? Many of those neighbors, who may have once been friends, saw a situation where they could personally benefit from the persecution and murder of Jews by taking their property, homes, and businesses. These people denounced their Jewish neighbors. There was an incredible amount of pressure to conform—through, art, music, theater, films, books, radio, school, and the media. Because you need the media to create a fear campaign.

How exactly did Hitler, or rather the government, accomplish this? The plan was in place before the propaganda began. They had to start by promoting hatred of “the Jew” or “those people.”

  1. Political demonstrations were banned.
  2. An antisemitic Canadian priest sermonized on the radio that Jews were causing the depression (because someone or a group of someones had to be at fault), and he received 80,000 letters of support a week.
  3. Hitler won over a group of leading industrialists. Here is a list of the top twenty-four German industrialists and bankers who fully supported this criminal venturehttps://adonis49.wordpress.com/2018/03/29/who-are-the-top-24-german-industrialists-and-bankers-who-fully-supported-hitler-in-his-criminal-adventure-and-why/. Just in case the site goes down, which happens a lot as of late, I did take a screenshot.
  4. Parliament was set on fire and the government was quick to blame the communists.
  5. Hitler convinced President von Hindenburg to invoke an emergency clause in the constitution. The German parliament then passed the Decree for the Protection of the Nation, which suspended civil rights including the freedoms of speech, assembly, and the press. This formed the basis for the prohibition of judicial proceedings for Nazi opponents, and all one hundred communist party members of the Reichstag were arrested.
  6. In the last free election, the Nazi party won 288 of 647 seats. In coalition with another rightwing party, Hitler took full control of Germany and individual German states were stripped of power.
  7. A wave of riots began against German Jews.
  8. Special Nazi courts were set up to deal with political dissidents.
  9. The SS, Hitler’s elite guard, established a concentration camp for political opponents of the regime. By 1945, the Nazi government had built more than a thousand camps.
  10. The Law for Removing the Distress of People and Reich, commonly known as the Enabling Act, gave the government dictatorial powers. Hitler promised that Germany’s artistic growth would be fueled by “blood and race.” This act allowed the government to enact laws, including ones that violated the Weimar Constitution, without the approval of either parliament or Reich President von Hindenburg.
  11. A boycott of all Jewish shops in Germany was instigated by the Storm Troopers or “brownshirts.” This was also directed at Jewish physicians, lawyers, and merchants. Jewish students were forbidden to attend schools and universities. However, due to international outrage and a lack of interest among many non-Jewish Germans, Hitler limited the boycott to a single day.
  12. Hitler approved decrees banning Jews and other non-Aryans from the practice of law and jobs in the civil service. Jewish government workers were ordered to retire.
  13. The German government began employment and economic sanctions against Jews.
  14. The National Political Educational Institutes were established as training schools for Nazi Party cadets.
  15. A law preventing overcrowding in German schools and higher education took effect, restricting the enrollment of Jews.
  16. The Secret State Police (Gestapo) were established by Hermann Göring.
  17. Hitler met with the Roman Catholic Church in Germany and claimed he was doing to Jews only what the Catholic Church had already done to them for 1,600 years. He reminded the bishop and Monsignor Steinmann that the Church regarded Jews as dangerous and had pushed them into ghettos. Hitler suggested that his anti-Jewish actions were doing Christianity a great service.
  18. The German government prohibited the Jewish ritual slaughter of animals for meat.
  19. German trade unions were dissolved.
  20. Books deemed “un-German,” most of them Jewish, were burned.
  21. Germany introduced the Law for Reduction of Unemployment, which provided marriage loans and other incentives to “genetically fit” Germans.
  22. Unknown assailants murdered a Labor Zionist leader.
  23. The Academy for German Law was founded to rewrite the entire body of German law.
  24. Hitler advised newspaper publishers of new journalistic regulations (control of the press).
  25. The German government stated that Hitler still belonged to the Catholic Church and had no intention of leaving it.
  26. The Nazi Party was made Germany’s only legal political party and opposition was punishable by law.
  27. Germany enacted the Law for the Prevention of Offspring and Hereditary Diseases, that is, sterilization of “unfit parents” and euthanasia of “the defective.”
  28. The Nazi government signed the Reich concordat with the Vatican. The Vatican helped legitimize the Third Reich and paved the way for the Nazi totalitarianizing of German society and later attacks on the European state system.
  29. Approximately 30,000 people were now interned in concentration camps.
  30. Hitler approved a decree forbidding German Jews from farming.
  31. A codicil stripped newspaper editors of power over content.
  32. New anti-Jewish economic measures were enacted.
  33. Germany withdrew from the League of Nations.
  34. The government passed a law that justified placing the homeless, the unemployed, and alcoholics in concentration camps.
  35. Another election took place. However, only the Nazi Party was permitted to nominate candidates.
  36. The Law against Dangerous and Habitual Criminals allowed for compulsory castration of “hereditary criminals.”
  37. A legal decree issued by Hitler declared Germany and the Nazi Party one.
  38. The German News Bureau was created to feed propagandistic news to German newspapers.

Jews were banned from public places, and laws were passed that stripped Jews of their rights. The government controlled them. One day, they were just living their lives, and the next they were hated, then being killed. The Holocaust did not just come out of nowhere. Before Jews were driven out of their homes and schools, before their businesses and shops were destroyed, before their property was stolen from them and they were stuck in ghettos and camps and cattle cars, words from powerful people stoked hate and turned people against each other. Divide and conquer was the plan, and the Nazis had the media to reach the masses.

The following are only some of the major laws enacted by the Nazi government:

July 14, 1933 – Jewish immigrants are stripped of their German citizenship.

September 29, 1933 – Jews can no longer own land.

October 4, 1933 – Jews cannot be newspaper editors.

January 24, 1934 – Jews cannot join trade unions.

May 17, 1934 – Jews cannot have health insurance.

July 22, 1934 – Jews can no longer gain qualifications.

May 21, 1935 – Jews cannot serve in the military.

June 26, 1935 – Women with “hereditary illnesses” can be forced to have an abortion.

September 15, 1935 – The Nuremberg Race Laws stop Jews from marrying anyone “of German blood.”

January 1936 – Jews are not allowed to teach German children or become accountants or dentists. They are denied tax reductions and allowances for children.

April 26, 1938 – Jews have to register all belongings with the Nazi government.

July 6, 1938 – Jews cannot trade anymore.

July 23, 1938 – Jews over fifteen years of age must own an identity card and have it with them at all times. (This is where “Show me your papers” comes from.)

July 25, 1938 – Jews cannot practice medicine.

September 27, 1938 – Jews cannot be involved in any jobs to do with law.

October 5, 1938 – Jewish passports are to be stamped with the letter J.

November 15, 1938 – Jewish children cannot attend school with Germans.

December 3, 1938 – All Jewish businesses are to be “Aryanised,” handed over to Germans without compensation, and all stock is to be sold below value.

February 21, 1939 – Jews cannot own gold or silver.

April 30, 1939 – Jews cannot be tenants and must live in “Jewish homes” (ghettos).

July 4, 1939 – Jews cannot be involved in government.

September 1, 1939 – A Jewish curfew is enforced: inside by eight p.m. in winter and nine p.m. in summer.

September 23, 1939 – Jews cannot own radios.

October 1939 – Use of euthanasia on the sick and disabled is legalized.

October 26, 1939 – Jews aged fourteen to sixty are forced to work.

November 23, 1939 – Yellow stars must be worn by Jews over age ten.

Someone once said to me that if the Jews had known what was coming, they never would have gotten into those cattle cars, been forced into those ghettos, or allowed a tyrant to take from them. But unfortunately, through history, we can look back and see how a tyrannical government so easily played on the fears of the people—by repeating a lie often enough, over and over, until people believed it to be true. The Nazis were so skilled that they knew exactly how to sow distrust toward the Jewish people, seeing them as to blame. The government controlled the press through propaganda. The goal was to gain one hundred percent not of people’s minds but of their emotions, because tapping into people’s emotions with twisted lies forces them to surrender their logic.

We all have critical thinking, and we should always be using this, always questioning the narrative. Yet when our fear has been manipulated, many people park their human decency, instead engaging in racism under the guise of Christian values, and they get caught up in a mob mentality. When you create an emergency, you need a scapegoat to rally the people against, a person or group who can be painted as the root cause of all the problems hardworking people are facing. They are portrayed as dangerous, criminal, even subhuman. After all, who could trust such people? Better to round them all up.

If you’ve read this far, you’ll know many people were involved and millions of steps were taken as Jews and non-Aryans gradually had their freedom erased. Many laws, legislations, lockdowns, and restrictions were put in place, and the narrative was controlled to divide the people and get them to hate each other. Millions of Jews were murdered, and many were subjected to the most horrific, inhumane, and deadly medical experiments in the concentration camps without their consent.

We have a history that, surprisingly, many still don’t know.

So ask yourself this: If you were one of the many German people hearing this narrative of blame, allowing fear to override what you knew was right, would you have stood up and questioned it?

Let’s talk about the social credit system.

Does everyone understand what that is?

Few people do, and I certainly didn’t until a few months ago, when someone first mentioned it to me. Social credit is basically a numeric score assigned to people based on their behavior. You know how credit scores work? Well, this ranking system is stored in a database, which monitors behavior across the country in real time. Pretty scary, isn’t it? People are paid to report on their neighbors, which creates polarization and forces people to conform to socially desired standards by engaging only with people of the same social standing or higher.

Here are some examples of factors considered in calculating someone’s personal score:

· Loitering

· Smoking in no-smoking areas

· Having a messy yard

· Gossiping (how many people would be in trouble for this one?)

· Spending too much time on video games

· Not paying bills on time

· Visiting sick parents when not allowed

· Spreading fake news

· Not stopping in front of crosswalks when driving

· Forgetting to pay a fine

· Saying something unacceptable online

· Buying a certain product that you, personally, are not allowed to own

· Leaving a bad review

· Hanging out with a friend or family member who has a poor social credit score

· Protesting anything (forget it, because that’s not allowed)

Here are some examples for businesses, too:

· Paying taxes on time

· Maintaining necessary licenses

· Fulfilling environmental protection requirements

· Meeting product quality standards

· Meeting requirements specific to the industry

· Complying with anything else deemed necessary

So what happens if you receive a low score because you violated one of these rules? Maybe you stood up and said no, you wouldn’t allow someone to violate your rights, or, worse, you criticized your government. Well, a low score means low trustworthiness. You might suddenly find yourself under a travel ban, or your internet speed might suddenly decrease, or you could lose your job and be unable to find a new one in your industry, or your housing might be taken away, or you might be barred from attending certain schools, or your banking activity could restricted, meaning you would lose access to your money. Your property might be taken from you, or you could be denied the ability to own property at all. You might become a social pariah.

People’s freedoms and choices would suddenly be gone. Your social credit score would be subject to the politically correct but morally bankrupt whims of the powers that be. Imagine going to buy a pizza and finding that the digital system you have to use says, Nope, you were bad and lost a bunch of credits. You can’t eat out, order a pizza, or buy milk or eggs today. Basically, in a digital dictatorship, if you do not fit the mold and behave exactly how the state wants you to behave, you can be punished, and your low social score can be posted publicly for everyone to see. Rights are slowly eroded. In schools, children may be taught a political agenda in the curriculum, and parents’ rights to their children may be stripped. These are the kinds of nightmarish oppressions we read about in dystopian novels.

The social credit system is a totalitarian system that can be used by the state to crush rebellious individuals, even if the rebellion is for good. Businesses can be blacklisted, and people too. The idea is to make everyone comply with government policies and regulations to avoid having a low score, and governments can then use that data to provide grants and loans to businesses that have high scores. The system rewards those who spy and report on their neighbors. Even local governments are rewarded by the social credit system only if they implement and follow orders from the central federal government.

The rewards of having a high score include easier access to loans and jobs, travel perks, and a higher priority when getting bureaucratic paperwork through, basically no red tape—kind of like how it works now for the ultra-powerful and elite. But if you have a high score and associate with someone who has a low score, say a son or daughter who doesn’t toe the line, a dissident who reminds you of the young people who have always stood up to tyranny, you can quickly lose your high score by association and suffer the same punishment inflicted on those with a low score. You may suddenly find yourself cut off from the internet, suffering public humiliation, and being denied access to jobs, loans, and goods and services. This kind of system is meant to divide people. Neighbors spying on neighbors, family turning their backs on family, everyone living in perpetual fear.

The potential scope of a social credit system is enormous. Think about it: Companies could track your activities and give you corporate rewards for your compliant behavior, just like credit cards do with rewards benefits. But in a social credit system, you could suddenly be blocked from making a transaction, or a surcharge might suddenly be added, or you could be completely unable to purchase food, goods, or anything. Think of those who exercise their free speech, question vaccine side effects, or advocate for their rights and their children’s rights. All of this could suddenly make you a target. Your debit card could get cancelled over tweets you make, or your home loan could be denied because you pulled your kids from school, or your PayPal or eBay account might suddenly be invalid because a friend flagged you for posting something that questions whether your government is lying to you.

Sometimes I read books and wonder where authors come up with this kind of stuff, the stuff nightmares are made of. It’s definitely not the world I want for my kids or myself. For example, in a country like the one I’ve described above, someone who holds conservative Christian values or voices his or her opinion on political, social, and religious topics might suddenly fall into the negative numbers for a social credit score. Can you imagine if something like this suddenly showed up on the horizon in your once free country?

In Canada, we have the Charter of Rights, as I talked about in my last blog. In America, you have the First Amendment, which says you have the freedom of speech, and the Fourth Amendment, which says you have the right to privacy. But what happens when backroom legislation and executive orders are issued to override these? That’s one of the most dangerous possibilities in a free country. You know where the social credit system does exist? In China, where the threat is real, where they have hundreds of millions of surveillance cameras using facial recognition software to perform surveillance on their citizens. And who is in control? Well, the system is, and it’s based on complex algorithms evaluating various kinds of data streams to assess position. The issue with online ranking systems is that their algorithms have been artificially designed. How they work is unknown to the public. A lack of transparency makes it hard to know who designed these systems and how they’re being used, and algorithms can easily be manipulated.

But it would never happen here, right? Not in a free country, where a government respects the rights of its citizens? The frightening thing is that my blog would not be allowed in a social credit system.

Remember the many wars our grandfathers fought? Mine fought in the First and Second World Wars, and my great, great, great grandfather fought in the Civil War, as well. All these wars were for our freedom.

A social credit system. Can you imagine being unable to be yourself, terrified to even love people anymore? As several have said as of late, this is the one inch we must not yield.

Does everyone know what happened on October 18, 1945?

Nazi Germany’s political, military, and economic leaders were brought to a series of trials in Nuremberg for crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. What was the outcome of this? The Nuremberg trials established that all of humanity, every one of us, would be guarded by an international legal shield and that even heads of state, such as politicians and other leaders, could be held criminally responsible and punished for aggression and crimes against humanity. Even a sovereign state can be punished for crimes against its own citizens. Remember what was said at the Nuremberg trials? Never again.

Are you wondering where I’m going with this? Ask yourself, do you really understand everything about your rights? I will be the first to admit that since the beginning of this pandemic, I’ve been sitting by idly on autopilot, just going along, because it didn’t really affect me. I am not one of the many mom and pop small business owners who have lost their businesses or are struggling to stay afloat against all the restrictions that keep hammering them. While big box stores have been allowed to have many people wandering inside, the mom and pop shops have had to shut down.

I remember, as I think back to the beginning, that I just wasn’t paying much attention to all the rules being implemented against businesses, which ones could stay open and which had restrictions. Think about it. Who got to stay open and made record profits? The major giants—you know, Walmart, Costco, and many more that we all love because everything is there under one roof and it’s like a trip to the candy store. Even now, with the latest news about vaccine passports, I think it’s ludicrous that you’ll be able to visit a fast food restaurant without one. Just the other day, I heard about one restaurant owner who has struggled to stay afloat and is so done playing the games politicians keep tossing at her, so she is using the rules they created to her benefit. She put a sign out and changed her restaurant to serve fast food, with counter service. When I heard what she did, I thought, that is one smart lady! She found the workaround to stay afloat before her restaurant could become one more small mom and pop place forced to close its doors. How many of you have asked yourselves why big box stores can stay open, yet small mom and pop restaurants are a problem? Even I was like, wait, there is something screwy here. Despite the spin they keep putting on it, I’m doing my own research now.

With regard to the vaccine passport, whether you’re for or against it is irrelevant. You won’t be able to go into a restaurant without showing your digital QR code, which, when scanned, reveals information about who you are. Now, I’m sure a few of the moms and pops reading this will wonder why they’re required to foot the bill in purchasing equipment to scan and verify these codes. This reminds me of a situation with my bank, which I called yesterday because something weird was going on with my account. They said they were implementing a voice ID system, and I was like, hell no! I said so over the phone, and the customer service rep didn’t know how to address me, because that wasn’t part of her script. According to her, they can change policy anytime and I have no say. But I’ll save that for another blog post.

Back to the current situation, think of small restaurants, those mom and pop shops that really are the backbone of the community and our local economies. It was announced that this passport policy will not apply to fast food restaurants, food courts, and cafeterias—which makes total sense, because those are more crowded than restaurants! Everyone understands this part, and they’re good with it, but for many local mom and pop restaurants, this is the last kick of the can before they’re out of business for good. Why should anyone want to put these places out of business? A great question that everyone should be asking. For me, because I’ll never give out my personal information, I’ll do what I can to support the moms and pops by stopping my big box store shopping, even though it’s convenient as all hell, and ordering takeout from local restaurants instead.

Even though mainstream media is following a narrative, there are good people stepping forward. One is retired Ontario police officer Vincent Gircy, who created a video to help small business owners and others know how to properly deal with challenges from police officers. Though it may seem like it, and those government guys are trying to make you believe it, the fact is that our rights are not gone even though they have been threatened. I encourage everyone to watch the video Officer Gircy put together, in which he addresses fines, police interactions, courts, and information everyone should know about their rights. He also clears up a lot of the false narratives I’ve heard from people who state something is illegal when it isn’t. Here is the link to the video: https://vimeo.com/534471999?fbclid=IwAR1NLC5NaYZy52czhCnfA0NOLW9QBEngVn-lhkovC_MVEwVR5QowSqxMqf4

One of the things he addresses, and everyone should know this, is to always record the interaction via audio or video. Remember that this is a Canadian retired police officer, and every country’s laws are different, so find one of the good guys in your country and get the facts on how this all applies to you. One point Vincent stresses is that when dealing with the police, no matter how angry you are, you need to park it. Always be respectful, polite, noncombative, and calm. Stand your ground, but remember that those in a position of power never like being challenged, and police officers don’t like to have their authority questioned by you. When you see police officers losing their cool, that is not a good thing, so don’t provoke them. If you get a ticket, don’t tear it up, toss it in the garbage, or throw it back at the officer. Say nothing, but check the section on the back that says you want to dispute the ticket. And if you have several tickets because you’ve suddenly become targeted—and yes, this is happening—just take them, make a file, and dispute them in court.

Everyone is pretty angry right now, and we have leaders and mainstream media dividing the country, fuelling the kind of anger and division that will get innocent people hurt. Remember one thing: How do you create division in a community? Use fear.
