California’s Dictator-in-Chief Capitalizes on Fear, Stupidity, Follows the Science™
There are lies, damned lies, and statistics. – Mark Twain
Six months to the date California’s Dictator-in-Chief lifted his tyrannical restrictions against his servants, Gavin Newsom, has now reinserted upon them his power. Today, a state-wide mask mandate went into effect. This mandate lasts, arbitrarily, from today until January 15, 2022.
As if, within a month, we will, somehow, defeat the coronavirus, after nineteen months. Using an array of the very same measures implemented before for longer times.
Trust the science™, lest ye be smited.
Regarding Newsom’s authoritarian edict, California’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Mark Ghaly, had this to say:
“We know people are tired and hungry for normalcy. Frankly, I am too. That said, this is a critical time where we have a tool that we know has worked and can work.“
(Emphasis supplied). This anti-scientific statement reminds me of a quote attributed to The Gulag Archipelago’sauthor, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “We know they are lying, they know they are lying, they know we know they are lying, we know they know we know they are lying, but they are still lying.” Lying makes politics go round.
Thus, Newsom’s tyranny begs these questions. Is this a critical time? Is this a tool that works? If the people you are chosen to represent are tired and hungry for normalcy, why not give it to them? It is working well in Florida.
Moreover, I thought we had effective vaccines? You know, the ones that Fauci, Pfizer, & Co. are promoting that we will need ever more of. “Free” vaccines, too (read: funded by your tax dollars).
Science™? Or Control?
There have been many studies involving whether or not the masks slow the transmission of the coronavirus. In the beginning before the pandemic became about political power, The Wall Street Journal, had many articles and videos regarding this question.
What was found is the COVID-19 viral strain, gifted to us from China and funded by the U.S. NIH, was so small, molecularly, that even the N-95 mask still did not inhibit the transmission of the virus. I rarely, if ever, see N-95 masks.
The N-95 mask means that it stops the flow of particles up to 95%. That means, the smallest 5% of particles will still pass through the filter. The Chinese coronavirus is within that 5%. Furthermore, the surgical masks, bandanas, face thingys, that we have all seen, do, quite literally, nothing to slow the spread.
The Mayo Clinic, a supposed neutral arbiter of medicine, has on its website that, yes, face masks help slow the spread. As long as the face masks are combined with other measures, such as vaccination and physical distancing.
Wear a face mask, they say. Stand six feet apart, they say. Jab yourself (three times, now?), they say. Then, you will have your freedoms back, they say. (Until the fourth jab.)
What has been found on the subject is that the vast majority, if not all, masks do not slow the transmission of the virus. Because, if they did, do you not think this all would be done with…I don’t know, let’s say, last winter? It does not take more than a pulse and a few brain cells to realize that the masks have nothing to do with the Science™.
If one were to read about all that is happening around the world, even within the United States, the reader will come to learn that the places with the highest vaccination rates are the places experiencing the largest increases in cases. Yes. You read that right.
The North East of the U.S. right now is experiencing the largest increases in daily cases. They also happen to be the most vaccinated. Places, such as Fly Over Country, Florida, and Texas, where freedom is allowed and vaccination is lower, so are cases and hospitalizations.
Thus, this then again, begs more questions, what is the point of being vaccinated? What are the reasons for such ineffective and tyrannical measures by Democrat Dictators? If, as many studies have found, being naturally immune to the virus is twenty-seven times (or 2,700% stronger) than the vaccinations, why is the government not allowing people to live their lives according to their own design, letting them become sick, and becoming more powerful against future mutations? If the government has a policy tool vastly stronger to combat this pandemic, why not implement it? America was sure quick to drop nuclear bombs…
Of course, we should protect the most vulnerable around us, just as they should take their own precautionary measures. I have never gone over to see my grandparents when I was sick with the flu. And I waited until I knew I was no longer sick and would not infect anyone. Haven’t we all done the same? We are all smarter than the government portrays.
Politicians, Power, and Profit
It may just be me. But, I am a cynic when it comes to government. That is why I prefer the most limited government possible, enshrined in our Constitution. However, my experience in politics, finance, banking, and government tell me to follow the money. And to think the opposite of the politicians making the most noise.
Democrats have railed against Big Pharma. Republicans, recently, are eerily silent on the matter. Since the beginning of the pandemic, all COVID-19 related treatment, hospitalizations, and vaccinations are funded by you and me. Yes. It may be “free” to you when happening. But the bill always comes due. That’s called taxes. Who is the biggest funder of Congress?
At this point, if one could not tell, I am blunt and to the point. Not many people appreciate the forwardness. Nonetheless, I carry on.
Dictators such as mine, Gavin Newsom, capitalize on what are called in the industry, “Low Information Voters.” People who do not know much about anything and will vote D or R accordingly. These are the voters that blindly trust the government. Fear is the best motivator. Stupidity compounds its gains.
As such, with Omicron magically appearing weeks ago and Fauci, Pfizer, & Co. talking about the need for more vaccinations (and even a daily pill!). All one has to do is follow the money to find out what the “pandemic” is really about. If the pandemic was as drastic as the government’s response, dead people would be lined up in the street like in Monty Python’s: The Holy Grail.
One day, with smartphones stronger than what landed Apollo 11 in our pockets, we can only hope the People become more informed and rally against the lies we all know they are spouting. And tyranny they are implementing. Personally, knowledge takes effort. A lot of people are lazy.
(P.S. we went from Alpha (COVID-19) to Delta, to Omicron. That means, there were twelve (12) other virus mutations the media and politicians did not make a fuss about. The more a virus mutates, the less powerful it becomes. That is due to our immune systems being able to adapt and overcome. Omicron is already being reported as nothing more than the common cold. So, again, I ask, Science or Control?)
