War in Israel. War in Ukraine. Out-of-control borders. The WHO Pandemic Treaty coming to take away our civil liberties.
It’s easy to want to avoid the news. I don’t really like contemplating the beginning of World War III or the end of all our personal freedoms. I suspect our leaders are trying to get us to spend the next five years killing each other so that by 2030, the survivors will be easier to round up and force into smart cities, eating bugs and owning nothing. They seem to think we plebians can be herded like cattle.
However, the public is not totally mindless. There have been some interesting developments over the past few weeks that show the public is paying more attention than our leaders seem to realize, and I’d like to share them.
NewsGuard is being sued!
Daisy wrote about this website’s experience in getting downgraded by NewsGuard in 2021.
We weren’t alone; NewsGuard has been going after bigger fish than the OP, and Consortium News is fighting back. Consortium News was founded by Robert Parry, who was a finalist for the Pulitzer in 1985 for his reporting on Iran-Contra. These credentials didn’t register with NewsGuard; Parry didn’t buy into the Russian collusion nonsense in 2016, and since then, Consortium News has had to deal with warning labels and downgrading.
But Consortium News has a bigger name and deeper pockets than the OP, and they have filed a lawsuit in federal court against NewsGuard AND the federal government. We wish them well!
The suit against the government for tampering with social media is going all the way to the Supreme Court.
We wrote a few months ago about some lawsuits being filed against the Biden administration. One of them is Missouri v. Biden, which alleges that the federal government colluded with social media companies like Twitter to suppress free speech.
In September, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals prohibited the White House, the Surgeon General’s Office, the CDC, and the FBI from almost any contact with social media companies. While this was overturned in October, pending a final ruling from the Supreme Court, it shows that parts of our legal system are absolutely still functioning as the Founding Fathers intended. We still have judges and lawyers devoted to protecting our First Amendment rights.
California’s bill forcing doctors to confirm to the official Covid narrative was repealed.
And sometimes they win. California’s Assembly Bill (AB) 2098 required doctors in that state to either conform to the “official” Covid treatment protocol or risk losing their medical license. So, for example, any doctors that suggested using ivermectin to treat Covid could lose their license, even if that doctor had good reason to believe it might be helpful.
Doctors within California were angry at both the restrictions on their freedom to practice their profession and insulted at the thought that outsiders would micromanage all their patient interactions. The Orwellian bill was set to go into effect January 1, 2023, but later in the month a district court agreed to an injunction, meaning it couldn’t take effect. In September, this bill was quietly repealed.
You can now sue Covid vaccine manufacturers.
This has been hardly the only blow to the Covid narrative we’ve been subjected to for the past three years. In breaking news, you can now sue the mRNA Covid “vaccine” manufacturers. Those particular products have been found to contain contaminants that were not disclosed to the FDA.
When vaccines are found to be contaminated, manufacturers lose their legal immunity. That means injured individuals can sue. Steve Kirsch has a link with a list of lawyers willing to take this on at the bottom of this article if you are interested. He also has the list of lawyers posted on his Twitter page.
In theory, since the contamination finding, these medical products should be pulled off the market immediately. We’ll see if that happens.
Nobody is getting the new Covid shot.
Either way, no one is getting these shots anymore. We discussed the rollout for this fall’s Covid shot. This was greatly hyped by the White House and legacy media. Pfizer’s CEO hoped to get about one-fifth of the country vaccinated.
How has that worked out?
Barely two percent of the population has taken the new shot. Pfizer’s looking at a billion-dollar loss and Moderna’s stock has tanked, leaving the values plummeting. When it comes to these medical products, people simply are not listening to the self-appointed experts any more.
And they’re not being quiet about it, either. Dr. John Campbell posted MP Andrew Bridgen’s speech to Parliament on excess deaths in the UK over the past two years. He presented this speech to two Labour Party MPs, and roughly a dozen Conservative MPs. Out of 650 members of Parliament, less than 3% showed up. This is a subject that Parliament obviously could not care less about.
However, if you watch the video, you can hear noises in the background. This Parliament session was open to the public, and the public came out in full force. As Dr. John noted, they are separated from Parliament by thick layers of plexiglass. The noise from the crowd in the background is that loud. It comes through particularly loudly in this clip.
We’ve seen public figures talk about a “pandemic amnesty.” Establishment figures want everyone to forget what went on over the past few years and just get along. The British public has shown that, actually, no, they don’t forget, and they’re not going to be quiet about it.
People from all backgrounds are united against political manipulatins.
Perhaps one of the most interesting developments has been the coming together of formerly opposed political figures. Many of you probably watched at least part of the discussion led by Matt Taibbi, Michael Shellenberger, and Russell Brand last June, exposing the Censorship Industrial Complex.
The Westminster Declaration is a document that grew out of that. It encourages the general public to
“. . . build an atmosphere of free speech from the ground up by rejecting the climate of intolerance that encourages self-censorship and that creates unnecessary personal strife for many. Instead of fear and dogmatism, we must embrace inquiry and debate.”
The signatories include people from all over the political spectrum, showing an increasing realization that it’s not about liberals and conservatives anymore but about political insiders and outsiders. It’s the Uniparty vs. everyone else.
Times are hard, but there is also light.
I say none of this to make light of the very real problems we face. The situation in the Middle East is likely to escalate. The US and Russia have shown themselves unwilling to use nuclear weapons thus far (thank goodness), but if things in the Middle East escalate, if Iran gets involved and they do enough to threaten Israel, well, Israel has nukes, too. We really don’t know where this will lead.
I simply point out these positive developments to encourage people to stay strong. Most of us have no control over big-picture issues, and that lack of control can lead to depression, a slide into not wanting to do anything because why bother?
Small actions do matter, even if the effects are not immediately obvious. Whether you decide to act by getting involved politically or participating in the parallel economy, you are making a difference. We could have been still living under mandates and vaccine passports if so many people had not simply chosen to stop complying.
We probably can’t stop World War III. I have people in the military that I care very deeply about. I have already lost someone close to me in Afghanistan. I’ve seen people come back with life-changing injuries. I can’t describe how much war hawks like Lindsey Graham, who has never been in combat and has no children to send off to war, disgust me.
What we can do, is to prepare ourselves and our children to the best of our abilities. That means staying physically and mentally healthy. And a big part of mental health is feeling like your actions matter and that your efforts are going somewhere. I genuinely hope these stories of small battles won help you feel like you are not alone.
What other victories have you seen lately?
Have you noticed any other great stories to give us hope? Some occasions recently where freedom has won or where the people say, NO MORE?
