COVID: The Great Destroyer of Liberty

COVID: The Great Destroyer of Liberty

by | Dec 9, 2020 | Blog


At no time in recent world history have the nations and peoples of the planet faced a greater threat to their God-ordained freedoms and liberties than the hyper-hysterical reaction to COVID-19. To believe that this so-called health crisis was either deliberately conceived or – at a minimum—maliciously manipulated by the global ruling class to ignite their “Great Reset” is to be accused of trafficking in conspiracy theories, according to the ruling class’ propaganda vehicles of the news and social media.

Yet, we have it on the authority of Chinese scientists like Dr. Li- Meng Yan that COVID-19 was indeed created in the Chinese Communist Wuhan Virology Lab, funded by none other than America’s health policy czar Anthony Fauci. Why would the Chinese Communist Party deliberately create a virus and unleash it on the world? Why would globalist power brokers like Fauci fund the research? And, why would the world’s ruling elites choose not to destroy the virus but the freedoms and liberties of their citizens instead? 

Is it all one giant power grab aimed at frightening the world’s inhabitants to surrender finally and permanently their right to travel, speak freely, practice their religion, and own private property? Why were we told back in March it was just “fifteen days” of lockdown to “slow the spread,” yet those days have now become weeks and months and probably years? Hasn’t Herr Fauci all but said we will be wearing masks forever and the arrival of vaccines should not change anything in our current situation of obedience and compliance?

No health crisis in recent memory has ever been addressed by rolling or “light-switch” lockdowns and shutdowns and bizarre color-coded tiers. No health crisis has been successfully brought to a conclusion through closing restaurants and private businesses. No health crisis has ever been confronted by closing churches and religious assemblies. No health crisis has ever involved closing schools. No health crisis has required mandatory mask-wearing or overnight curfews. And, whoever heard of threatening to arrest someone for entertaining too many people in his or her home?

The facts about COVID-19 could not be clearer. The virus has a survival rate of about 99.6%. The elderly and those with severe health issues are most seriously afflicted. Few if any children or teenagers are affected. The vast majority of individuals who test positive are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. There is no scientific evidence that cloth or paper masks do anything to prevent transmission of the virus. There is precious little data to suggest that asymptomatic individuals are serious spreaders of the disease. And, new therapeutics and antibody treatments like Regeneron are helping people recover faster than we could have imagined a few months ago.

Have the lockdowns and mandatory mask edicts worked? If they have, why are we having massive surges all over the country? Why are the very preventive measures Fauci and others demanded failing to turn the tide against the virus? We are masking up and socially distancing like never before, yet none of it seems to be doing any good. So, what’s the response from brain-dead politicians like Joe Biden and Boris Johnson in the UK: more mandatory mask mandates and more lockdowns. Of course, it is the definition of insanity to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.

After almost a year of the progressive destruction of world society due – not to the virus – but to the response of world governments to the virus, it’s time to recognize that COVID-19 is not really a health crisis at all. It’s a political and politicized virus likely unleashed by the Chinese Communist Party as part of their grand strategy to weaken the West and achieve world domination and ruthlessly used by the global ruling classes allied with the CCP to initiate the takedown of our cherished rights and freedoms.

In a stunning post-election speech by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, the conservative jurist voiced alarm at what he called the “previously unimaginable restrictions on individual liberty” provoked by the pandemic. He lamented that “we have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive and prolonged as those experienced, for most of 2020.” He said COVID had become a “constitutional stress test” that “highlighted disturbing trends that were already present before the virus struck.” Alito said we are moving toward a society where an “elite group of appointed experts” rules over us in the name of science.

Isn’t this exactly the case where phony medical “experts” like Fauci determine public policy? And, why should medical experts of any kind be determining public policy any more than economists should be making health care decisions?

Justice Alito pointed out how COVID is leading to a loss of our First Amendment freedoms across-the-board, from speech and assembly to religion. He said: “All sorts of things can be called an emergency or disaster of major proportions. Simply slapping on that label cannot provide the ground for abrogating our most fundamental rights.”

The recent Supreme Court decision slapping down Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions on church attendance in New York demonstrate that COVID – the Chinese Communist virus – has left our Constitutional rights in America hanging by a thread. By just one vote did the Justices re-affirm our First Amendment rights. Four justices – including turncoat conservative John Roberts – would have flushed those rights down the toilet.

Two decades ago, we saw the George W. Bush administration launch an unprecedented attack on civil liberties in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. That’s how we got the Patriot Act, FISA, secret tribunals, and warrantless spying on American citizens. Now, we are seeing the global power brokers moving into overdrive to radically “reset” our society along authoritarian – or perhaps even totalitarian – lines. Ronald Reagan once said that if Fascism ever came to America, it would do so under the guise of Liberalism.  Are we not watching that unfold today and what are we going to do about it?
