Things are not always what they seem. This expression, dating back to ancient Rome and the words of Gaius Julius Phaedrus, although historically an axiom and a commonly used phrase in the vernacular, no longer seems to resonate with those living in the world today. I say that almost derisively, because many in the world including those in our church have become so apathetic and complacent, that they will readily accept a mainstream narrative or point of view at face value regardless of its source, rather than critically evaluating its veracity. Sadly, they have either been indoctrinated by an unrelenting flood of partisan hyperbole, or they lack the discernment or critical thinking skills to see through the façade. Of course, those who may be promoting a nefarious agenda count on the fact that these individuals are not likely to do any research of their own to ascertain the facts, thus rendering them ripe for deception and recruitment as ardent supporters. This is why Jesus said that in the last days the deceptions would be so great, “that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24). One must fully realize the implications of this statement. Obviously, in order to nearly deceive those closest to the Lord, such deceptions would have to be extremely well-crafted.
To use one of many Biblical examples of deception and collusion, consider the well-known story of Naboth’s vineyard and Jezebel’s criminal acts in arranging a false indictment of Naboth to get him out of the way (1 Kings 21). Complete with a bogus edict from the king and conscript false witnesses, the scam worked. Nobody asked questions at the time and Naboth was carried off and stoned to death. As unsavory as this story may be, it almost pales in comparison to some of the unscrupulous activities that characterize the events of this past year. These events unfortunately parallel the serious lack of investigation and scrutiny that led to Naboth’s death.
Recently, I came across a Facebook post by a prominent church member that ridiculed the idea of a socialist agenda plunging our nation into communism as nothing but a mere conspiracy theory. This individual is not alone in that thought process. She and others like her also vehemently support what has come to be considered the most extreme and obtrusive measures ever employed for mitigating the spread of a disease. The same individuals also consider the controversy surrounding the 2020 election results and the refusal by Donald Trump to concede as nothing more than a ‘temper tantrum’ on the President’s part and a misguided political allegiance by those who concur with his concerns about fraud. While one can easily argue that the disparity between the opposing viewpoints on these subjects is rooted in partisan politics, there are nonetheless facts on the record that must be considered to avoid being victimized by the events that will ultimately ensue.
It never ceases to amaze me how easily people will fall prey to the clever and manipulative tactics employed by corrupt politicians, insatiable billionaire oligarchs, and a mercenary media. Few, even in our own ranks, fully realize what time it is on the prophetic clock. They still refuse to stand for the truth, particularly when it poses a risk to their reputation or to their freedoms. It is becoming a rare event to see bold non-conformists challenge the status quo, especially in our church. Our Conference has become notorious for failing to take a stand on God-given rights, and whether faced with unreasonable and unconstitutional government mandates or simply the disparagement of long-standing Biblical beliefs and practices, our leadership would rather roll over and play dead. As I have said many times, this is a far cry from the bravery and courage of the Protestant Reformers who were burned alive for defending their faith.
Rather than belabor the point without providing some tangible and documented examples of the apparent psychosis that has befallen so many, I will at least touch upon some of the key points alluded to earlier. The events that are unfolding around us tell a startling story – one that should have sounded an alarm a long time ago.
First and foremost, the question must be asked; are we really headed toward the culmination of a socialist agenda in America that will usher in communism? The truth is, we are already there. Those who discount this fact are oblivious to the significance of current events. Apparently, they have not studied history, nor have they learned anything from the truly lucid points raised by Ellen G. White in The Great Controversy – particularly those about our country repudiating “every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government.” As such, these individuals have no idea about what communism looks like. Furthermore, because of a strictly theological focus on the papal falsehoods that will ultimately engender Sunday legislation, they cannot discern the connection between Catholic doctrines such as “the common good” and communist ideals. This is important to understand, because the path to a Sunday law and the closing events of Bible prophecy will originate from both a religious and secular direction.
The threat of communism did not cease with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. It actually assumed a different form – embedding itself ideologically in many countries around the world. While there are nations that authoritatively impose communist ideals on their citizenry – including China, North Korea, Vietnam, and Cuba, there are those who have implemented this political system under the banner of social democracy and republicanism, such as the nations of South America and Africa. However, the United States, through an unrelenting undercurrent created by so-called left-wing liberal politicians such as Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and others who are self-professed socialists, has shifted its direction from a constitutional republic into a rapidly evolving dictatorship. Any individual who has not resided in a cave over the past year can easily discern the progressively stark changes that have taken place in our nation. The rule of law has been upended.
The racially inspired riots and burning of our cities, the destruction of historical monuments, the political controversies and scandals, and the unconstitutional mandates, are collectively a harbinger of what is to come. This should be sounding a deafening alarm for those who cherish freedom. But the only thing deafening is the silence. Systemic complacency and apathy have allowed political leaders and legislators to unravel the safeguards established by our nation’s founding fathers that prevent the intrusion upon our rights, particularly those that apply to the free exercise of our religious beliefs. Furthermore, political leaders are no longer constrained by the rule of law and, as millions witness their activities through the mainstream media each day, they are free to commit felonies with complete impunity. Supported by a new incoming administration and organizations such as the Democratic Socialists of America, it is just a matter of time until our nation is immersed in the kind of totalitarianism that decimated millions of lives under Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Kim Jung Ung. Those who cannot see the writing on the wall through the events of this past year, are either living in denial or burying their heads in the sand.
What most do not understand about communism is that it endeavors to destroy humanity itself. It is a satanic instrument used to subjugate the masses by unraveling individual rights and weeding out those who are dissidents and societally undesirable. It accomplishes these goals through the destruction of the family, through censorship, by dispensing with morality, and by inciting riots and social disorder. Karl Marx, the founder of Marxist theory and the arbiter of modern-day socialism, stated that communism is about hate and degeneracy. He was an extreme racist, which makes it particularly odd that the party of “equality for all” would represent socialist ideals. Communism has historically advocated the violent destruction of social classes and the decimation of private enterprise, nations, religions, and family. It embraces anarchy as a means of achieving its goal of social restructuring. It endeavors to redistribute the wealth so that everyone is cared for by the government, to whom they must give their unwavering obedience. The slogan popularized by Karl Marx in 1875 that describes this paradigm: “from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.” Has any of this hit a nerve yet in relation to the events of this past year?
It has been stated openly by world leaders such as Justin Trudeau that the COVID-19 pandemic has created an ideal opportunity to initiate the “Great Reset”, a global agenda that made the front cover of Time Magazine. It is an idea that has engaged the World Economic Forum in discussions for years. This think tank boasts of its commitment to improve the condition of the world by bringing together business, political, academic, and other leaders to help shape global, regional, and industry agendas. It hosts some very familiar names including Bill Gates, George Soros, Boris Johnson, Prince Charles, António Guterres, and Angela Merkel. Without getting into an extensive dissertation, the objectives of the Great Reset, according to its proponents, is (1) repairing the global economy from damage caused by the pandemic, (2) stopping the specter of climate change, and (3) building a more sustainable post-pandemic world.
Unfortunately, the pandemic, the racial strife, and the economic damage arising from the pandemic are collectively driving socialist ideals that include the redistribution of wealth and the forgiveness of debt in exchange for relinquishing personal assets. In other words, you will be supported by the government, but you will own nothing. Using the more sanitized jargon of Klaus Shwabb, one of the primary advocates of the Great Reset, it is an effort to “to create a more inclusive, resilient and sustainable world” in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a social experiment of immense proportions, paralleling the fictional ideas spawned by such figures as George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.
The key talking point advanced by the globalists involved in the World Economic Forum is that the proposed radical restructuring of our society will ultimately bring about a better world. It is the age-old idea of creating a utopia through socialist philosophy. Unfortunately, this concept has been tried many times throughout history by others and has failed catastrophically. A prominent example is Venezuela. It is a dystopia. Apparently, the well-known adage, “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it,” does not resonate with these self-professed global leaders.
When it comes to social upheaval, nobody does it better than the organizations that have been funded directly or indirectly by people like George Soros. He has been known to funnel money to Black Lives Matter and Antifa through various front organizations. Soros, along with other oligarchs, tend to invest funds in organizations or causes that promote socialist ideals, oftentimes creating upheaval and controversy throughout the nation. Unfortunately, with much of the mainstream media under their control, high-sounding talking points are promoted to gain the sympathy of the uninitiated for the cause du jour. This leads to a total misconstruction of the truth. Those who sympathize with the agenda espoused by BLM, for instance, obviously overlook the fact that its leaders publicly describe themselves as “trained Marxists.” Such an admission should sound an alarm, but this on-the-record disclosure has done little to dislodge the emotional and unfounded rallying cry that turned George Floyd from a felon into a hero from the minds of an indoctrinated populace (including many in our churches). After all, racism is a serious problem that should be eradicated by a caring and sympathetic society. But the implication instilled in people’s minds by Black Lives Matter is that all law enforcement is racist and that police departments should consequently be defunded. The very absurdity of such a notion has evidently escaped the rationale of a public mesmerized by a clever rallying cry amplified by social media.
This effectively disguised BLM’s actual intentions of creating a racial divide. Millions of sincere individuals “took a knee” for a purpose that, while seemingly humanitarian and altruistic on the surface, was actually crafted to bring about racial strife and social destabilization – one of the hallmarks of socialism right out of the Karl Marx playbook. The specter of systemic racism and the mercenary media’s unrelenting effort to drive the idea into the minds of millions, has created a melee that cannot be unraveled. The subsequent destruction of statues and historical monuments is a classic maneuver to erase history – a process vitally necessary to plummet a society into communist ideals and pave the way for a totalitarian society. Think about it for a moment – even the statues of individuals noted for their efforts in ending slavery or spearheading human rights were destroyed. This paradox alone should have sounded an alarm. But millions missed the boat on this too, including a majority of those in our churches.
To gain some insight into the depth of these clandestine socialist strategies, all one must do is to consider the level of callousness and sheer maliciousness behind the thought processes of the individuals involved behind the scenes. For instance, it has been documented that George Soros’ money has supported much of the anarchy we have witnessed over the past year by paying for the provocateurs that instigated the destruction of property and the burning of our cities. In an appearance on 60 Minutes some time ago, Soros cavalierly revealed how he enjoys “experimenting” with society. He stated that although people get hurt in the process and have their lives turned upside down, “it’s really kind of fun.” This is the sort of warped ideation and lack of compassion on a grand scale that only demonic forces can instill, driving these corrupt individuals to engage in everything from bribery and election tampering to genocide. Soros himself has stated that he does not believe in God and answers to no one. That says it all.
There are many people living in in our country who grew up in a communist regime. I know some of them personally. They have seen what we are all witnessing today happen before, and they are terrified about the outcome. I cannot blame them a bit. If only those who off-handedly dismiss the obvious would remove the rose-colored glasses and realize that they have been misled. As it stands, those who decry the red tide sweeping our nation as a conspiracy theory are probably just as out of touch with reality as are those who claim that the Holocaust never happened.So, the real question is, will our country ultimately become mired down in communist governance? On the surface, this would appear to contradict Bible prophecy and therefore be improbable. However, it depends entirely upon how one views communism in relation to the prophetic goal of establishing a one world religion. As I mentioned earlier, the common good, which is a fundamental principle within Catholicism frequently touted by Pope Francis and now echoed by those in the mainstream, represents in many respects one of the pillars of communist ideology. It condemns individualism and independence and replaces it with an allegiance to the state and to our fellow human beings. While some have been led to believe that this is a Christian ethic, it is anything but Biblical. It is in fact the same paradigm that prevailed during the inquisitions, where the Pope of Rome exhibited both religious and temporal authority – condemning professed Christians as heretics and putting millions to death. Similar circumstances will likewise prevail during the persecutions that, despite the subconscious cynicism of some, are surely forthcoming. To unpack this further, Catholic teachings are steeped in paganism, both historically and theologically. Although there are many in the Catholic church who genuinely love the Lord, this is surely not the case for some of those in the deeper recesses of its infrastructure. Similarly, there are those in the political realm who, while they tout their Catholic affiliation, are actually devout socialists with an agenda that defies Biblical principles. For instance, Joe Biden, if confirmed, would be only the second Catholic president.
He has pledged to implement various policies advanced by left-wing extremists that coincidentally align with those of Pope Francis, all for the common good. For example, the pope’s encyclical on climate change, quite popular with the globalists and left-wing environmentalists, contains language that promotes Sunday worship. It is evident from the unfolding events that, unlike JFK who said he believed in an America where “no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be Catholic) how to act,” this will not be the case with a Joe Biden presidency. The groundwork has already been laid by liberal extremists to institute measures advocated by Pope Francis and the Vatican, as many pope-friendly op-eds and mainstream news reports reveal. On the other side of the Hegelian dialectic, however, a Trump presidency would, through an evangelical advisory team connected to the Vatican, eventually accomplish the same thing. Simply stated, all roads lead to Rome. So, on one side of the political spectrum there are those steeped in spiritualism. On the other side, there are apostate Protestants who believe “the protest is over,” and support the ecumenical movement. Together with the papacy, they will form the Threefold Union (Revelation 16:13,14). Ellen White sums it up this way in Maranatha:
“Papists, Protestants, and worldling will alike accept the form of godliness without the power, and they will see in this union a grand movement for the conversion of the world and the ushering in of the long-expected millennium” (Maranatha, p. 190.4).
If you objectively consider these points, and genuinely embrace Biblical counsel, whoever winds up in the Oval Office is almost irrelevant, since it is God who places leaders in their respective positions (Dan 2:21). What is important about the election controversy, however, is the election process itself. If indeed there is widespread fraud, a phenomenon that has concerned many over the years and appears to have finally come to fruition in this election, it behooves every American to insist on a sufficiently thorough investigation to determine the validity of the election results. While my own political proclivities are irrelevant here, I do recognize and support the fact that the ability to cast a secure and lawful vote is the only voice the people of this nation have in their government. It is liberty that is at stake here – not the presidency, per se. Regardless of who is declared the next president of the United States, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled. You can count on that.
It is interesting to note, that there was a satirical Hollywood film released in 2006 entitled “Man of the Year” whose story line bears a striking resemblance to some of the events that have occurred over the course of these past few years, particularly in relation to the subject of election fraud. Similarly, there have been films made about pandemics years ago that parallel current events. A television series, The Dead Zone, that aired from 2002-2006 on the USA Network. had an episode entitled Plague with a storyline bearing a perhaps a more-than-coincidental resemblance to the COVID-19 pandemic. To the astonishment of many, the Chinese origin of the virus and the drug chloroquine, among other things, were specifically mentioned in this fictionalized Hollywood production. Is this life imitating art, or is there another more ominous aspect to these supposedly coincidental depictions?
While there are those who would ridicule the idea of covert direction in the writing of a Hollywood script, even the writers themselves for that matter, there are nonetheless those in the industry who know all too well about the influence of secret societies in various mediums such as Hollywood films. They will tell you that this is not a conspiracy theory. Subtly revealing future plans in advance through fictionalized accounts is almost a game for these folks – a taunt of an unsuspecting public – much like George Soros and his penchant for having ‘fun’ experimenting with people’s lives. There are many Hollywood films and popular fiction novels where an uncanny resemblance to current events was presented through these vehicles, years before they happened. Oligarchs like George Soros and his ilk thrive on such malevolent games and they have the financial wherewithal to perpetrate them. In fact, many of those pushing the socialist agenda are so brazen, that they willfully commit outright felonies in the open these days – in plain sight of an often disbelieving and disillusioned public. Tinkering with election results is certainly not beyond the grasp of such unscrupulous individuals.
Having spent part of my career as an executive in the computer industry, I can tell you unequivocally that election software such as that of Dominion is not beyond the manipulation of hackers or paid cohorts. If secret societies, political activists, or Marxist idealogues desired to manipulate the outcome of a presidential race, it is highly credible that the means to accomplish it would be readily available through globalist sympathizers. I would strongly urge those who are naïve enough to scoff at the existence of secret societies and covert operations to read or listen to JFK’s speech on this subject in 1961 that I alluded to earlier. It has been asserted by some that this message and his stand on the Federal Reserve may have been key factors in his assassination.
For every agenda that evolves out of the minds of those whose goal it is to undermine the founding principles of our country, there is a front or cover story that sounds plausible – at least sufficiently intriguing to convince the uninitiated to jump on their bandwagon. The only reason this is happening with more regularity today is that those who fall prey to such contrivances have been subliminally indoctrinated by the endless barrage of media hype and skillfully crafted talking points. They have neglected the study of history and are not even meagerly concerned with the preservation of our freedoms. This is not at all surprising when you consider the fact that history has been all but banished from public education – another feather in the cap of those whose desire it is to transform our country into an Orwellian social order. People have become far too complacent. I cannot even count how many times people have told me that the current scourge will end soon, and things will get back to normal.
With regard to socialism, efforts to transform our nation have prevailed for decades – from the labor activists of 1877 who founded the Socialist Labor Party of America to the trials and tribulations of McCarthyism in the 1940s and 50s. But concerted efforts to implement the principles established in Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto in the United States have always been foiled by those who love their country and want to preserve the freedoms that can only be found here. Nonetheless, today’s efforts to subvert the principles of our republic are more aggressive and more ingenious than ever before.
The election controversy is a perfect example of how an effective talking point can subvert the truth by impairing objectivity and rational thought. Rather than applying critical thinking to consider the importance of secure voting and unadulterated election results, the rallying cry for those who focused their sights on their choice of candidate to the exclusion of all else was, “Trump is a sore loser.” This rather inane assessment of the electoral process illustrates the impact of an almost childlike assertion that not-so-surprisingly gained traction. Those who have been hoodwinked by this highly superficial characterization, without considering the ramifications of possible election fraud, will have unwittingly handed over their freedoms to the socialists who are wringing their hands behind the scenes in triumphant ecstasy. Aided by those with the financial resources to help conceal the real truth, the status quo will remain undisturbed and the resulting catastrophic failures that are soon to occur will merely become part of the checkered history of socialism, with all the dubious honor going to these treasonous oligarchs.
Then of course there is the pandemic and the draconian measures adopted to supposedly mitigate its spread. This is perhaps the best example of all in terms of socialist maneuvering and indoctrination. The rallying point here is that mitigation efforts such as mask mandates, social distancing, and ultimately vaccines, are an earnest effort by a government trying to protect its people – a truly high-sounding and altruistic objective. In other words, the measures are being implemented for “the common good.” Bear in mind that this is the very same government that for decades subsidized the tobacco industry, currently subsidizes the production of unhealthy food products that created the chronic disease epidemic, refuses to limit the proliferation of alcohol and alcoholic beverages, and currently has a bill in the House of Representatives to legalize marijuana. In cahoots with Big Pharma, the government, through its various agencies, is also lax in pulling drugs proven harmful from the market, while at the same time ready to fast-track new drugs and vaccines that have undergone minimal and often flawed evaluation and testing. Yet, millions have come to trust the government, through its various medical and public health agencies to determine what is healthy and acceptable and what is not. As a result, the population at large has learned to view SARS-CoV-2 as an extremely deadly virus and COVID-19 as a highly lethal infectious disease.
The level of ignorance about the virus is only surpassed by the naïveté and gullibility of an indoctrinated public, replete with its armchair scientists and social media junkies. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, these individuals are immovable in their unrelenting fear and subsequent compliance with mandates established by those who do not possess the knowledge or authority to make such decisions. Indeed, in that regard, they have been taken in by the most startling and malicious hoax in the history of humanity – one that, if left unchecked, will solidify the goal of radical socialists to transform the United States into an impoverished, anarchical, and godless nation.
In a book entitled Corona, False Alarm?: Facts and Figures by Drs. Karina Reiss Ph.D. and Sucharit Bhakdi, which sold over 200,000 copies and 75,000 e-books in just six weeks, a scientifically-based argument is presented to debunk the sheer lunacy that has gripped America. But is anyone listening? There are many other epidemiologists, researchers, and medical doctors with stellar credentials far greater than those in the current driver’s seat who have bravely stepped forward to challenge the status quo with scientific peer-reviewed facts, at the risk of censure and castigation. Nonetheless, despite the most profoundly rational arguments and empirical data, millions are still mesmerized by the unscientific and irrational methodologies advocated by people such as Anthony Fauci – an individual with a dubious track record, ironically honored as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.
Fauci, along with Deborah Birx, are perhaps two of the most incompetent physicians in the nation. They have the notorious distinction of instituting policies that have resulted in death and destruction, all in the name of a virus that, regardless of what people may choose to believe, has not empirically proven to be the monstrosity that the mainstream media has touted it to be. Fauci and Birx both relied upon epidemiological models developed by Neil Ferguson of the Imperial College of London which predicted that tens of millions of people would die from the novel coronavirus, similar to what happened during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 – a prediction that was wildly inaccurate and epidemiologically flawed. Ferguson also predicted a massive number of deaths for everything from Mad Cow Disease to swine flu. In the case of bird flu, he projected 200 million deaths, but only 457 people actually died. Obviously, Fauci and Birx did not bother to evaluate Neil Ferguson’s track record, to the detriment of millions of people and, obviously, their own credibility.
Their now entrenched policies have resulted in an exponential increase in suicides and overdose deaths right along with child abuse, domestic violence, and murders, all arising from the inescapable impact of factors like isolation, economic ruin, food shortages, and a now an apparent effort to dehumanize society. This does not even take into account the vast number of individuals who died from a lack of medical care for unrelated conditions because they were barred from hospitals and other facilities due to closures or staff cutbacks. It also does not consider the number of nursing home residents who died from a lack of family visits and interaction. It is a documented fact that more deaths have occurred from these aberrant and socially destructive practices than from the virus itself. And while Fauci surprisingly made the cover of Time Magazine, millions suffered damage to their lives for which nothing can ever compensate them. To add insult to injury, the other nominees for the cover of Time were Andrew Cuomo and AOC.
Considering the amount of damage each of these individuals has caused in their own right, one would have to wonder how this seemingly absurd quirk of reality could possibly have happened. It’s really quite simple. Time Magazine was purchased from Meredith Corporation in 2018 by Mark Benioff, a Silicon Valley billionaire who stated in a CNN interview that there is a “crisis of trust” in the world and that “our world today needs more trust.” Benioff was also quoted as saying that capitalism has led to “horrifying inequality” and must be fixed. It is of course no coincidence that Benioff stands in solidarity with folks like George Soros and Bill Gates – all of whom espouse the agenda of radical socialist extremists. Is the picture becoming clear yet? Nearly all of the mainstream media is owned by industry moguls, all of whom are determined to give our society a complete makeover. God is surely not in any of this.
It is rather obvious to the rational individual who can still think outside the box that, by propping up charlatans and corrupt authoritarians, the mainstream media has enabled the establishment of practices and protocols that curtail private enterprise, suppress worship and devotion, limit weddings, funerals, and other social activities, and generally turn the lives of an all-too-trusting public upside down. It has opened the door to the imposition of unprecedented and unreasonable restrictions. These supposedly beneficial restrictions were implemented with an iron fist that reaches into the personal privacy, security, and freedom of conscience that the Constitution and Declaration of Independence guarantee for all Americans. Thus, the objectives of Marxist idealogues are being subliminally grafted into our society, fostered by an indoctrinated and all-too-compliant populace. Some of the mandates that are being promulgated are so inordinate, unconscionable, and yet compliantly obeyed, that almost nothing originating from these rogue agencies would surprise me anymore, no matter how absurd it may appear to be.
If the public health gurus and the hypocritical authoritarian government leaders issued a mandate for people to get down on all fours and bark like dogs in order to reduce their carbon dioxide retention while minimizing the inhalation of aerosolized virus, I can almost guarantee that millions would follow this directive without giving it a second thought. It is truly a sad day for this country when people firmly believe the drivel that has been served up in order to clandestinely subjugate the masses. As George Soros said, it is fun to experiment with people’s lives. It does certainly prove one thing: the pandemic narrative worked. And it worked well. The rallying point in this pandemic – that the mitigation efforts are for our own good – is extremely effective. It sounds perfectly plausible, altruistic, and trustworthy. And the best tool for protecting this convoluted narrative is to slap a moniker of “conspiracy theory” on any challenge to it, or to the status quo. This kind of insidious labeling process has been a common practice for decades as a means of subverting the truth and keeping an uninformed public in the dark. I have found that during this so-called pandemic, even formerly respected scientists and medical practitioners are suddenly being labelled conspiracy theorists and banned from social media. No surprise at all about the censorship since Big Tech is in the hip pocket of socialist oligarchs. Their objective must by necessity entail suppression of the facts at all costs if they are to succeed with their nefarious agenda.
So, in consideration of my opening statement – things are not always what they seem – I would like to take just a couple of key points that challenge the most closely guarded storylines of the COVID-19 conundrum. I encourage the so-called fact-checkers and naysayers to debunk what I am presenting, particularly about COVID-19 statistics, with empirical, scientific, and documented facts to the contrary. The key word here is documented. Of course, I would insist that such information originates only from reputable peer-reviewed sources or original medical texts from the Library of Congress that have not been modified, abridged, or somehow politicized. There are principles of immunology, epidemiology, and virology, that have been embraced by medical practitioners and researchers alike for decades. They have stood as pillars in the practice of medicine. Suddenly, these are being summarily dispensed with and supplanted by arbitrary, unprovable, and downright superstitious concepts and conjecture. The social media platforms particularly strive to disparage such factual data by using so-called fact-checkers that are right out of the think tanks and cabals of socialist extremists. This is an effective weapon designed to violently overthrow honest and truthful perspectives.
So, just how dangerous is COVID-19 in reality? Paramount to the evaluation of the relative danger COVID-19 poses is the number of “cases” that are reported. What most in our country do not seem to grasp is that when the public health agencies or the media report spikes in the number of cases, this refers to those who have tested positive for the virus. What they do not realize is that this figure does not necessarily represent those who are actually ill or can transmit disease. It simply means that viral genetic material resembling the SARS-coV2 pathogen has been detected, but it does not mean that such an individual has or will have symptoms, illness, or even the likelihood of transmitting the disease. The determination is made by PCR test. PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction, a test that has been used by doctors for decades to help detect the presence of genetic material from pathogens that cause a variety of diseases such as chlamydia, tuberculosis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, and many more. A PCR test is designed to detect a small amount of genetic material in a sample by duplicating it many times over through a process known as amplification. This actually highlights one of the key faults associated with the PCR test for SARS-coV2. The number of cycles used in the amplification of genetic material is a determining factor in confirming the actual presence of the pathogen.
According to a report from FIND (Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics), an organization financially supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, “the sensitivity of these tests is not uniform, and is affected not only by the assay itself, but also the limit of detection, viral inoculum, timing of testing, and sample collection site.” Although these observations would tend more toward false negatives, they do help to illustrate the complexity and potential failure rate of the test. In short, there are many variables that affect the relative accuracy of the PCR test. However, the most important point to be made about PCR tests is that they were not designed nor intended to diagnose a disease. They are an adjunct in the diagnostic process where patient history, physical exam, and perhaps other laboratory and diagnostic studies are employed to accurately identify a disease. This is a far cry from the millions of PCR tests that are being performed on an unsuspecting and asymptomatic public to determine the supposed spread of the virus (and to hype the numbers through mainstream media). Bear in mind also that the SARS-coV2 PCR test was developed in record time. For the claim to be made that it is a reasonably accurate gage of COVID-19 infection is utterly ridiculous. Unlike many other PCR tests that have been in use for many years, it has an abysmally short track record with unknown efficacy from a real-world perspective. In a landmark court decision, a Portugal appeals court ruled that the test is not reliable because of an error rate as high as 97 percent, and as such, lockdowns based on such testing are illegal. Datasets compiled by authoritative agencies in New York, Massachusetts, and
Nevada found that up to 90 percent of the people who tested positive did not carry the virus. This is most likely the reason for the vast number of so-called asymptomatic cases. The fact is, these individuals have no semblance of COVID-19 infection. They were sampled using a nasopharyngeal swab, with no exam or confirmatory testing involved. What is most likely occurring in these cases is that the PCR test, with repeated amplification, is perhaps showing positive results because genetic material from other coronaviruses such as those that cause the common cold can bear certain similarities in their genome. Colds are often caused by coronaviruses, although they may also be caused by rhinoviruses, adenoviruses, parainfluenza virus (HPIV), and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). In short, the PCR test for SARS-coV2 is seriously flawed. The New York Times published an article on August 29, 2020 stating that experts from Harvard University are surprised that PCR tests as practiced can serve as tests of contagiousness, even more so as evidence of pandemic progression in the case of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Without belaboring this issue any further, it is rather obvious that the number of “cases” being reported by the media is grossly exaggerated almost to the point of absurdity. The purpose for this charade is apparent: to continue to drive the fearful narrative of a rapidly spreading killer virus into the public consciousness to maintain the authoritarian controls that have now far exceeded all reasonably humanitarian considerations.
With regard to COVID-19 death statistics, there is no secret about the inaccuracies in these either, if one would only take the time to do some cursory research. It is a known fact that public health agencies have provided instruction to hospitals and physicians on how to properly complete death certificates. If a patient dies in their care and they have tested positive for COVID-19 (per the flawed PCR testing previously described), the cause of death is to be recorded as COVID-19. This leaves the door open for virtually any cause of death to be recorded as due to COVID-19 including heart attack, stroke, or even rattlesnake bite. I personally know of two instances, through family members, where this recently occurred. One of them, an alcoholic suffering with an advanced alcohol-induced pancreatitis, after violently throwing up blood and ultimately suffering a major internal hemorrhage, died of blood loss and organ failure. His death was recorded as COVID-19. Another young man with a severed artery did not receive prompt treatment and subsequently died from blood loss. His death was also recorded as COVID-19. The most obscene aspect of this chicanery is that there is a financial incentive for hospitals to inflate COVID-19 deaths.
The incentive is derived from the federal CARES Act – the $2-trillion emergency relief package Congress passed in March. It increases per-patient Medicaid reimbursements to hospitals by 20% for patients listed with a “principal or secondary diagnosis of COVID-19.” Considering the fact that many hospitals were hit hard by being forced to turn away routine procedures such as elective surgeries because of the pandemic, oftentimes resulting in the furloughing of doctors and nurses to manage the impact on their bottom line, it is no surprise that they would be indirectly complicit in raising the recorded death toll so that the media and political pundits can continue to do their fearmongering. Nonetheless, the on-the-record-fact at this point, even with the aberrant and hyperinflated statistics, still show that in most cases COVID-19 is no more contagious or lethal than the seasonal flu, and in the vast majority of cases, it is very mild and anything but life-threatening. As I have said many times before, this is not Ebola with its 80-90 percent death rate. To shut down an entire society and destroy the livelihood and mental health of millions for something so minimally dangerous, ultimately resulting in a death toll far higher than that of the virus itself, is not only an absurdity, but a crime against humanity.
Another method the authoritarians and mainstream media have been using to ramp up the fear of COVID-19 – to which most of the populace has succumbed, involves highlighting the purportedly “peculiar” features of COVID-19 infections. From a psychological perspective, this has probably been the best strategy employed throughout the so-called pandemic. Everything from losing one’s sense of smell to cytokine storms and life-threatening blood clots that cause heart attacks and strokes, have been used as fodder for the fearmongering efforts that have now psychologically impaired millions of Americans. However, peer-reviewed articles in respected medical journals such as the Journal of Medical Virology, the Thrombosis Journal, and others, have reported similar instances of ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), thrombosis, and even organ failure in other epidemics such as Swine flu, Asian flu, SARS, and MERS with even greater severity and frequency.
In that sense, COVID-19 is not unique. Furthermore, the novel coronavirus may not be as novel as first described. Apparently, tests conducted on more than 7,300 blood samples collected from U.S. donors in 2019 were positive for SARS-CoV-2, proving that the disease was present here weeks or perhaps even months before it surfaced in China. Even the Journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases acknowledged that the virus may have been spreading through the U.S. population weeks before anyone ever knew about it. These facts are vital for people to know and understand so that they do not hand their freedoms over on a platter to the expectant socialists. Of course, once again, the forces behind the scenes have relied on the belief that few will ever research these facts.
Some might adamantly point out the mainstream media reports about hospitals overflowing with COVID-19 patients in an attempt to prove that the virus is truly deadly and taking the lives of many Americans. Once again, things are not always what they seem. In those areas where the virus has purportedly surged, hospitals have had to refuse routine or elective procedures in order to make room for potential COVID-19 patients, regardless of whether these patients ever appear or not. In so doing, staff members must be furloughed. This effectively reduces the number of available beds, because there is simply not enough staff to attend to patients if the hospital were to be filled to full capacity. This is once again another sleight of hand heavily utilized by the media. With less staff and commensurately fewer beds, hospitals would obviously be considered overcrowded or overloaded, particularly when you consider that the seasonal flu and other patients with urgent care issues must be included in the mix. The burgeoning hospital overload sounds good, however, and serves the purpose of continuing to promote fear and compliance with prevailing mandates.
Oddly enough, however, specific numbers are curiously not mentioned, i.e., the number total beds in the facility vs. the number of beds utilized, nor for that matter, even the number of patients actually admitted specifically for COVID-19 treatment. Rather, the media elects to report on the number of “cases” almost exclusively. The reason is fairly obvious. It is easier to fabricate the number of “cases.” The actual number of hospitalizations and deaths could conceivably be audited at some point later on. But, by using a PCR test that is inherently flawed, the number of “cases” can be easily exaggerated. It would then be very difficult to empirically verify the actual numbers.
With regard to masks and social distancing, I have already discussed these in previous articles and I can only pray for those poor misguided souls who have not taken the time to research these preposterous and unscientific measures on their own. These individuals will probably be part of the group crouched on hands and knees that I referred to earlier. They will do anything to avoid a potential threat to their own health or a perceived threat to the health of others. They have descended into abject foolishness instead of turning to their faith in God and relying upon the promises He gave us – particularly if we follow his counsels on health in order to bolster our immune system. In the meantime, the officials issuing the mandates are not following their own dictates. Governor Gavin Newsom of California, who mandated some of the most extreme lockdowns in the country, attended a large non-socially distanced and mask-less party at a very expensive restaurant in Napa Valley with a large number of people.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed warned residents that they must sacrifice get-togethers for Thanksgiving because they could become super-spreader events. She subsequently proceeded to attend a celebration for the 60th birthday of socialite, Gorretti Lo Lui, held at a fine French restaurant. Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler warned his constituents not to travel in order to remain safe, and that it is “not the time to relax.” He issued his comments from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where he was vacationing, having hosted a wedding and reception for his daughter with 20 guests a few days earlier. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards mandated that everyone dining at a restaurant must wear a mask. In fact, because of his order, the Firehouse BBQ in Livingston Parish was served a restraining order. Edwards was subsequently seen at a restaurant speaking to a group of people – violating his own mandate by not wearing a mask. Then, of course, there was the well-known report of Nancy Pelosi visiting a hair salon in San Francisco without a mask, after the city issued strict orders that these and other businesses were to remain closed because of COVID-19 until further notice. And the list goes on. Obviously, these public officials and others do not regard these mandates or the risk from COVID-19 with any degree of seriousness. Should we? How obvious does the hypocrisy have to be for people to wake up?
The so-called spikes in COVID-19 around the country reported by the media, once again based upon flawed PCR testing, are most likely designed to keep the populace in line. It is interesting to note that the United States is among the nations hardest hit by the virus, despite lockdowns, masks, and social distancing. Why would this be the case? Obviously, if the mitigation efforts were actually effective, this should not be happening. The most probable reason, however, is that the reports about the repeated resurgence of the virus represent another clever maneuver to coerce the populace to follow the rules. Our neighboring nations do not need such coercion, since socialist principles have already been more well-established in their people, as well as those in other countries around the world. They are certainly more prone to comply with even the harshest mitigation efforts. However, of all the nations in the world, the United States is truly the most independent. Personal freedom is a fundamental part of our DNA, and it is obviously one of the attributes that must be eradicated in order to install a communist regime.
Anthony Fauci was recently quoted as saying that Americans should “do what they’re told” despite their “independent spirit.” It was an allusion to “the common good” – again, the frequently used expression by Pope Francis and the new mantra of the socialist left. Thus, there is strong motivation to exaggerate the spread of a purportedly deadly disease in order to maintain a grip on the minds and the will of the people. In short, it is because of American pride that more urgency needed to be applied by the forces behind the scenes in order to convince the masses of the seriousness of this pandemic and to gain their compliance with freedom-usurping measures. It is evidently working quite well at this point. All of these measures are leading to the ultimate goal of individuals like Bill Gates and other socialist oligarchs – a mandated vaccine. These globalists stand to benefit handsomely from their personal investments and their unyielding allegiance to the forces of darkness. And those who have fallen prey to this mass deception, including supposedly faithful church members, will be the first to roll up their sleeves when this poorly vetted and truly dangerous vaccine becomes available. But that story is for another article.
The magnitude of the damage caused by so-called mitigation efforts based on conjecture and superstition may never be fully known. It is a ruse and a Marxist stratagem of unparalleled proportions. It is about authoritarian control. It is about the Great Reset. It is not about a virus. Just as the Black Lives Matter movement is not truly about systemic racism, so too is this pandemic about another more covert agenda. The leaders in public health and government who have knowingly orchestrated this wrongful and criminal deception should be brought up on charges and tried for treason. It is no understatement to say that we need another Nuremberg trial. Of course, we know this will never happen because the draconian efforts that have become a scourge to millions, have been part and parcel of the socialist movement sweeping America. Those responsible for these high crimes and misdemeanors have not been brought to justice so far, nor is it likely that this will ever happen.
An alarm should have sounded for millions of Americans the moment the unprecedented violations of freedom and of law and order appeared – when the pandemic, the race riots, and the election scandal first began. But instead, the alarm never sounded. It remained silent, as millions bought the storylines tailored for their consumption and joined in the rallying cries – compliantly following the Pied Piper straight into the pits of Hell. The events of this past year have proven to be perhaps Satan’s greatest illusions of all time – no surprise considering that we are nearing the end of this world’s history and that he is running out of time.
The only hope in all of this is that in the absence of sports, theatre, school, travel, and many other human activities, people will turn back to God and recognize the need to take a stand for the truth. This especially applies to the constraints placed on worship, fellowship, and the practices associated with them. It is our place as professed Christians to obey God rather than man. John MacArthur of the Grace Community Church spoke those words during his court battle against the state of California over arbitrary and unreasonable worship restrictions. We need to defend our First Amendment rights with the same dedication and commitment that the Protestant reformers did against the tyranny of papal Rome. This does not mean that protesting the draconian measures will necessarily solve the problem, although it may prove to be a necessary part of the final events that lead to the culmination of what Bible prophecy foretells – particularly as described in the final verses of Daniel chapter 11. These events will run their course in due time. But, in the meantime, people do need to take a stand. Recently, a restaurant in Staten Island, New York, Mac’s Public House, garnered national attention when the owner was arrested for defying mayor De Blasio’s arbitrary mandate that closed his restaurant. The order was arbitrary because of an imaginary dividing line that permitted other restaurants to remain open and serving the public just one block away. The owner’s arrest sparked a large protest outside the restaurant involving hundreds of people. This is no doubt the beginning of the defiance that will ultimately ensue as the lockdowns and other mitigation measures continue to intrude upon the will of the people. Similar protests are beginning to break out elsewhere in the nation.
Howard Hughes, one of the most notable germophobes in history, was so fanatical about protecting himself from potential disease, that he practically lived all the remaining years of his life in stark isolation and excruciating fear. It was in fact the most unwieldy and absurd practices he followed to shield himself from illness that ultimately resulted in his death. A relationship with God, where fear has no place, was not part of his journey in life. Ironically, the measures many are embracing today to avoid an exaggerated disease outbreak or the legal repercussions from not doing so, is no more faithful or rational than that of Howard Hughes. The Bible exhorts us not to fall victim to fear and trepidation: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10). It is high time that we practice what we preach.
