It is Terrorism Behind the Covid-19 Outbreak: We can now prosecute those responsible

So its time to start making the case that everyone, or every organization who has attempted in some way to use the coronavirus pandemic as cited by the World Health Organization in a fearful way to change behavior, especially in America, as a terrorist. After all, that’s what terrorists do, they use fear to make a point. They don’t always have to be dressed up like some desert slugs walking in from the ruins of the Middle East. They can be working professors out of Harvard and/or run major television networks. They might even be doctors advising governors and presidents on policy regarding how to deal with a virus outbreak. They might be rich people fresh off the board with Microsoft who want to scare everyone into emitting a zero-carbon footprint to deal with climate change. Anyone who has used terror to manipulate politics to advance their own point of view could classify themselves as a terrorist and the behavior surrounding Covid-19, the “China Virus” is certainly that. I think we are now well beyond the point of saying that the models the scientists were using to predict the viral outbreak coming out of China that has paralyzed the world and shut down the economy everywhere were accidentally wrong. The way that doctors and media outlets have used that wrong information to instill fear and behavior change on just America is enough to classify them as global terrorists, and its time we start dealing with them in that way.

If a ship captain is drunk and runs their ship into a harbor killing many on accident, they would still be charged criminally with negligence. If a pilot landing a plane crashed killing many on board, they would be criminally investigated and blamed for the killings. If a train operator allowed their vehicle to pick up too much speed and crash through a derailment killing many thousands of people, they would be blamed for the conduct. So it should not be considered otherwise that the doctors and scientists who got all these models of death counts wrong with the Covid-19 shutdown of the American economy wouldn’t be held accountable. Let’s say it was an accident, they should still face jail time or other criminal prosecution for screwing up our society and ruining the happiness of so many people—even if they did so with the best intentions in mind. But, and this wouldn’t be hard to prove, if they did it with the intent to change the behavior of people with terror, then what they did was just as wrong as those 9/11 terrorists who crashed two planes into the World Trade Center to harm the American economy back in 2001. 19 years later, climate change activists and many professional scientists with an obvious hatred of capitalism have used the Covid-19 outbreak as political cover for their terrorism and it hasn’t taken long to reveal their true intentions. Already the governor of California is stating that this coronavirus is an opportunity to usher in a whole new “progressive era.” So the concept that everything behind Covid-19 is an act of terror, not a health concern as it is being disguised, is a true representation of what we are dealing with as a nation. And those openly participating are behaving with criminal conduct, not good intentions.

I’m convinced that Mike DeWine of Ohio has bought into the deadliness of the potential for this viral outbreak, because he trusts the scientists. I don’t think President Trump has, but he’s always being accused of not listening to the professionals, and with the media ready to blame him for every death that “could” happen as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak—he doesn’t have much choice but to play along. They certainly got his attention by saying millions of people were going to die as a result of this virus outbreak and each day when that doesn’t turn out to be the case, they revise the goal posts to fit a narrative that is meant to change behavior in America, everything from “social distancing” to wearing masks. Mike DeWine believes he is saving lives by being one of the first governors in the country to issue stay at home orders essentially shutting down the state. In my book, it was his decision to be a leader and to not fall for the antics of terrorism coming out of the science community that is full of climate change activists—so he is guilty for what he has done—even if he meant well. Someone must pay for the trillions of dollars lost, and for the loss of our way of life. He, nor does anybody get to say, “we’re all in this together,” then just go to bed thinking they saved the world from an invisible enemy. That enemy was never really the enemy, it was just a virus that most people became sick from and got over. Some people did die of complications like what happens with just about everything that people do. There was nothing all that unique about this virus, only that it was being weaponized to attack western civilization and it had terrorist soldiers in place to advance the dialogue and scare politicians like Donald Trump, and Mike DeWine into suspending our constitutional rights and altering our lives due to the sheer terror of potential death. Yet there is nothing that says that by staying home we are saving a single life, or that slowing the spread is doing anything but prolonging the inevitable. Where the real cure is to get the virus, stay home for a few days, then return to the world immune to coronavirus in the future, the doctors and scientists of the world have interrupted nature to invoke behavioral change that was not meant to save a single person, but assist them with advancing a progressive, socialist agenda in North America.

There is clearly enough evidence for even a mediocre lawyer to establish intent on this case on a scale for which the world has never seen. Pick a target, we are in a target rich environment, from CNN to Dr. Doom himself. We could certainly throw in Amy Acton from Ohio into that mix. I’m willing at this point to blame her for using global models corrupted with information out of Italy, Spain and New York to set policy for Ohio. Her choice to make decisions off bad data makes her guilty of all the misery she has caused in Ohio. The death toll in Ohio could be said to be the same regardless of coronavirus. Death of any kind is bad, and it looks nasty to the front-line workers and people who handle the body bags. Its not good under any condition. But to associate Covid-19 with an emphasis on a daily death count scoreboard is meant to make people just look at this virus and to sell them on behavior change as justified by an inaccurate measure. When the measure is deliberately, or accidently inaccurate and we are making decisions off it, then someone must pay for the results. And when we find out that all these death counts were propped up to advance lifestyle changes in western cultures it was terrorism that was being applied and that is a criminal enterprise that must be punished. No matter who it is perpetrating it. We need to view them not as heroes of science, but of terrorists representing climate change and seeking socialism around the world by convincing people to give up their rights for some made up greater good. And that is what we are dealing with, not well-intentioned scientists, but outright terrorists who have simply changed tactics and are presenting us with a new problem, those who seek to take advantage of our trust in order to advance political objectives.

Dr. Doom and the Grand Covid-19 Conspiracy: Fauci and many others hope of reshapping America through panic

When I call the Covid-19 virus an attack of a different kind its due to the recognition that we all must have to fight the real invisible enemy. The perpetrators undoubtably know what they are doing but the conspiracy is not the little virus that they have everyone so terrified of using a panicky media to do so, it’s human nature itself that has been turned on its head and used as a weapon in times of a different kind of war. On this battleground most people are overly reliant on third party controllers through their media devices, and through years of failed public education have learned to trust the systems that rule their lives. That was clearly what Dr. Fauci was thinking when he went on CNN on the morning of March 29th and sabotaged President Trump’s desire to reopen America during Easter Weekend. Fauci, a lover of the idea of a global medical network where doctors get a lot more prominence in some future type of society always worried about every little disease and bump on the head, knew that if he stated that 200,000 people could die from the Coronavirus that President Trump wouldn’t be able to move forward with his plans, and that the best way to get what the medical community wanted—which was more power—was to drop that bomb on CNN before meeting with Trump, to control the content of the meeting.

I have no doubt that at the last Devos Economic Summit where I have proposed that this plan of shutting down the world, especially America was formed that these subtilties of human nature were discussed as the chain reaction that was needed to advance their plots. Why wouldn’t it work, short selling would trigger a mass sell off panic, Trump would be put on his heels as his precious American economy would be jeopardized in an election year, as a pent-up and highly ignored group of bureaucrats in the medical industry wanting very much socialized medicine to match their climate change initiatives would do all the dirty work as the investors there at Devos would buy up everything on the low and get very rich doing it. They would then spend some of those gains on foundations that further perpetuated the restructuring of the world after Covid-19 through foundations and grants. To understand the truth of that plan we must all remember that Dr. Fauci has advised many presidents and has been around for a while. Trump inherited him for a position that most wouldn’t have thought very important at the time. Even if Trump would want to fire Fauci the press would swarm all over it making it the lead story all over the world. For Trump, the only real move he would have would be to play along with Fauci and let him be embarrassed by the lower death rates. After all, while the Covid virus was going on, nobody in the world was talking about all the other things that were happening and this was a chance for the President to reach out to moderates and attempt to expand his base if only his base would stay in tact through the government mandated shutdowns. And if they didn’t, the Devos conspirators would be happy to say that they had finally managed to separate Trump from his base giving them a shot to put a Manchurian Candidate into the White House perhaps after all.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Butler County Sheriff’s department in my hometown in Ohio 911 calls have consisted of people telling on each other for having too many cars at one house, or too many people standing in one yard. People had turned on each other after just a few weeks of the stay at home orders that governors all across America had placed to self-implode the American economy only to save a few lives that were taken by an aggressive seasonal virus. The behavior of common everyday people quickly fell into the realm of a zombie apocalypse. People were turning on each other while the real villains were patiently waiting in the oversea markets to buy up the losses and set future government policy not through the United Nations, but through the World Health Organization. The front offense had not worked a decade before so this new approach which appealed to most everyone’s primal fears for basic survival was a much more prosperous one from that point of view. Who needed to send in tanks and troops when friends and neighbors had become the enemy and the focus of the engagement had been placed so close to the front of our faces that there was no way to see the big picture strategy that was at play, until of course it was too late.

It is unlikely that Dr. Fauci was anything a part of that Devos global strategy formed at the 2020 Economic Summit there, but they counted on his pent-up greed for recognition in his own profession to start the chain reaction. They knew that the fear of liability was such a pervasive concern in the highly litigious American culture that once the federal government set an aggressive standard on guidelines that every governor and mayor down the line would add their own bits to it out of fear of having a single death blamed on inaction. By overdoing the restrictions, they could at least say they did everything they could to prevent a single death by Covid-19. All they needed out of Dr. Fauci was a nonverbal conspirator who wanted to advance his chosen field under the limelight of global recognition. The rest would take care of itself. Fauci painted Trump in a corner where the Democrats could blame him for everything, if he acted too late, if he acted too aggressive, if he was not concerned enough, the media was doing the work for him in an election year of putting ropes on the President, just as the Devos conspirators had anticipated would happen. It would force Trump to try to flip around the effort and use it as a campaign platform—which was his only choice while taking a gamble that the American economy would bounce back in the summer, after loosing trillions and trillions of dollars during the shutdown.

As I was explaining all this to people wanting to understand it, I was throwing a baseball and used the thing to press up in front of the persons face I was explaining it too to conduct a proper metaphor. With the baseball literally against their eye, they could see nothing but the stitches on the baseball. Then I explained, the real way to look at this is from behind home plate as the batter hits the ball and pops the ball into the outfield for a catch next to the wall. You have the look at the ball from that distance to see what’s really going on and to understand the game. If your eye is right up against the ball, you won’t see all the other aspects of the game. And that is the real trick of the Covid-19 strategy, to put literal death in front of people and to cause them to only see the stitches and their need for basic survival—while all the events of the game go on beyond their ability to see. The intentions are obvious if you are looking at the whole field, which is how we must view what is happening to our country right now by very malicious attackers. And Dr. Fauci is playing his part for sure.

Ohio Has Plenty of Hospital Beds: So what is the excuse now for people stuck in their homes?

Ohio has plenty of hospital beds and can handle the “surge” of need from the coronavirus in a recent IHME model cited recently by the White House.  While its sad to think that 1,672 people in Ohio might die of the virus, more than that will die of many other things.  So if the reason for shutting down the economy with stay at home orders is the real reason for all we have suffered from, then what is the excuse now?  Here is the article as reported by the Ohio Star, click the link to see the whole thing:

 

A new epidemiological model cited by White House officials shows that Ohio hospitals have sufficient regular hospital bed and ICU hospital bed capacity for when the peak of the coronavirus hits the state in the upcoming weeks.

According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) model, Ohio is projected to see its resources peak on April 20. The model shows that the Buckeye State will need 5,609 beds; however, the state presently has 14,290 beds available, according to the study.

Furthermore, Ohio is expected to need 854 intensive care unit (ICU) beds by April 20, the date the model projects the pandemic will peak in Ohio, but it already has 12,238 ICU beds ready to go. 

In terms of deaths, the IHME model predicts Ohio will have 1,672 by August 4. As of Tuesday, Ohio Department of Health (ODH) numbers show 55 people have died from the coronavirus.

In short, there  is no reason to keep Ohio closed.  So lets get back to work!

No, We’re Not All In this Together: When government ignores the rules we all agree to we have an obligation to replace them

There are so many things wrong with the Covid-19 reaction by our government at so many levels, but the worst attribute of it was the decision to extend the suspension of the Constitution until April 30th over fears of a high death count of people suffering from the global virus outbreak. The lockdown of our American economy is a death of its own, one that will likely cause many more deaths and suffering than the virus. But the way we have been tricked into measuring this thing put President Trump into a bad position. I get the politics on every level, but that doesn’t make it right and my position is as it always has been, whether or not Trump is president, I agree to the Constitution. When the Constitution is suspended and our government isn’t using it for guidance to the rule of law, then I no longer feel bound to those rules, and a social check is in order, even mandated. Now I am supportive of a government trying to help people when disaster strikes, but in the end with this Covid-19 virus, many governors and mayors have gone well beyond the CDC guidelines recommended at the federal level and abuse has been quite obnoxious. The danger should be quite clear to everyone, emergency powers suspending the Constitution without any clear resolution is a dangerous place to be, and that is something we all need to deal with.

Suddenly unelected pill pushers are in charge of our economy and have forced President Trump to play a bad game of relying on them for his salvation, and our own Constitutional rights. We are living presently in a world where checkpoints on our highways are in place, we are being monitored for public safety, even forced to self-quarantine should we be shown to be a risk factor to the society at large—and constantly everywhere we are being told by government that we are all in this together. Well, no we’re not, I do not accept being compelled into the same lunacy as this government has fallen under, and if there is no Constitution, then there is no law. Compliance to a government that has lost its way is not some mandate that we must all be sheep moving in a herd like a bunch of idiots and what we have witnessed has changed my thoughts on government forever. I’ve always been weary of it, but what I have seen in the last month over a viral outbreak that is really an aggressive form of pneumonia is the kind of stuff that starts wars. My only real hope in the matter is that Trump will spin all this around on his attackers. There are several avenues I can see where this can be done, but it should have never come to this. If there is a silver lining, I supposed it’s good that having Trump in the White House forced the planners of this reaction to the next virus to hit the waves to play their card now instead of a few years down the road.

President Trump has been a good president, but he got suckered on this one, the doctors told him to shut down the economy otherwise every death on the meter would be blamed on him. Then he was told by those same doctors that if he opened the economy too early, then every death would be blamed on him. They pinned him in a corner and his only play is to let their overreactions to models show how they overstepped and to hit them in hindsight. But the suspension of the Constitution, compelling General Motors to comply to being taken over by the state, a 2 trillion dollar bailout where government stuck its noses into all our lives causing massive financial failures is not OK. And we can see now how door to door searches would look, because they are happening now in minor ways, soon to be elevated based on the success. Government has pressed us to see what they can get away with and so far, we’ve been too compliant—which was a bet they were willing to make based on Google analytics and Facebook data collection. Trump is still a good president, but if he sends troops to my community, that for me is a challenge to take our government back from the clutches of these losers, not to comply with more orders.

My life is not to be surrendered to the stupidity of government bureaucrats, and I am not all in it together with lazy people who could care less. Government is there to make sure the courts run, that the highways get paved, and to keep order. They are not there to be our kings and emperors, and if they view their first role to protect people then they have opened up a definition that could easily lead to tyranny, because every action could be viewed by some timid soul to be dangerous. If a president that I have supported gets suckered into a bad deal, like what is happening over Coronavirus, then it is not my obligation to go down with the ship. The Constitution is what it is, it’s not to be suspended under ill-defined emergency orders as viewed by flawed individuals drunk with power. Check points and house arrests are too far for me. I do not trust state or federal government to make decisions on my life, especially of this magnitude. I am happy to wash my hands not to spread a virus, even to separate from others to not pass it around, but the destruction of an economy I’m proud of, and to tell me to stay inside—the government people are doing government work, just isn’t acceptable.

Regardless of what happens on April 30th, this government has lost my confidence in it to behave properly and do what it must do to advance American interests. I will still work to re-elect President Trump, but honestly it’s the whole system that bothers me, it’s a Democrat House that would even attempt to paint him in a corner with a death count and a media that would resort to such low tactics that shows me no matter who we elect that they will not respect the kind of America I have been fighting for, and that means that things probably need to get messy. We have seen this kind of hysteria over the #metoo movement, except when Joe Biden is involved, we see this over so many issues, why would anybody think otherwise when a virus is politicized to destroy America from those who truly hate it and those of us who want to preserve it. I’m not going to just sit around and let that happen. If they want a fight, well, then let’s have it. But I’ll say this, we are not all in this together. I am not participating in the kind of America they want just as they have refused to participate in the one I represent. They should know better, but joining their vision isn’t an option, and taking away our society and everything we love isn’t going to break us like some horse. I view this reaction to the Covid-19 virus shutdown as an assault and it has changed the way I will deal with government in the future. That is for sure.

The Misery Index: When will the governors give back their emergency power?

It’s a tough act to walk back, but now that they’ve had a taste of the emergency powers granted to them, all these governors and mayors are going to be very reluctant to give it back to the way things are supposed to be. Emergency powers need a time limit, yet none of them can give us one, nor do they want to which at this point is why this “flatten the curve” nonsense keeps getting pushed out into April and May. In the case of Mike DeWine, I don’t think the power has gone to his head as much as he knows that there are going to be serious ramifications coming his way in the wake of this mess in Ohio, where every day businesses are closing forever, people are committing suicide, divorces are happening at an increased rate and the state budget is getting decimated. So his abuse of the power is more out of self-preservation than anything else as he has allowed Amy Acton to dig everyone deeper and deeper into a hole of financial depression by staying closed much longer than was ever deemed necessary for a virus that in the end will turn out to be a pretty standard seasonal thing. They’ve painted themselves into a corner and there’s no way out without tracking through that paint and being accused of many bad things that nobody will forget.

The Covid-19 virus will spike in the coming days, but to date we only have under 20 deaths that are attributed to the virus. Many say that’s too many but if we look at every single life with a misery meter and judge them all the way we have tracked this virus where every person who gets it has their face plastered on television and the department of health steps in to force mass quarantines and further testing of targeted audiences, the numbers are always going to be skewed toward the state’s case for more emergency powers which then allows a governor to behave like a king and sidestep the legislature as long as they can deem the need for an emergency. If every person in Ohio were measured in the same way there would be more than 20 deaths caused by the state shutdown, the fights that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise, the suicides over financial ruin, the misery of weakened immune systems that wouldn’t have otherwise been sick if they had not been forced to hide in their homes and not indulge in the things they enjoy, which then made them sick of other things. Yeah, there is a mess in every state, Ohio is not the only one, and it will be Hell for all state governments for the foreseeable future that they overblew the statistics for Covid-19 to harness the power of emergency powers for their own varied needs. But in the wake of that, they caused a lot more misery and destruction than what the virus would have if they had just trusted the free market to handle the surge in need the way we always have in the past with other viral outbreaks.

What was different with this one is that we allowed ourselves to be dominated by many foreign powers, this time coming at us in the uniform of a scientist building models that overly stated death counts and functioning from all kinds of emotional needs at the World Health Organization. We trusted these people in our government to know better and they screwed up in a massive way and now that we all know it, they are buying time hoping to push off the inevitable. We’ve handled mass virus outbreaks just as bad as Covid-19 in the past, people got sick, they stayed home and when they got better they went back to work. We certainly didn’t try to ruin everyone’s lives over a fear of hospital capacity. And we certainly have not seen where so many places around the United States have used such a minor viral outbreak to acquire so much power for the state and its government in a king-like manner without knowing when they were going to give those powers back. That anxiety is costing even more lives and money by the hour. For instance, there are people who really love baseball season. There are companies who invest lots of money in seasonal tickets and some people get great joy in going to the park on a spring day to eat a hot dog and to watch a baseball game. There are sports teams like the Reds who have spent massive amounts of salary to have a good season for the city they represent, and all that investment and momentum is on hold over the fear of massive deaths that will never come. And those people have no visibility as to when all this might end, and they can plan their lives once again.

One of the themes of this reaction to the viral outbreak shut down plan has been lives matter more than money as if those were separate elements of life. But think of the thousands and thousands of small business restaurant owners who have lost their entire inventory of food because it’s shelf life has expired and they have no idea when they can start to place more orders because they don’t know when they can open. Think of Kings Island and Cedar Point, the big amusement parks in Ohio who have no idea when they can open, hire staff, or even purchase food for their concessions. The government know nothings advocating this shutdown might say, well, those are wealthy companies and they can figure it out. Well, they shouldn’t have to, government should never make itself an impediment to anybody’s success, and if the misery index were to follow each and every person the way they have tracked the Covid-19 virus government would see just how many lives they have ruined with these “safety” actions and that they made everything much, much worse than if they had just stayed out of it.

President Trump and the Senate are certainly guilty too. Taking over General Motors to make health equipment is not acceptable, nor is a 2 trillion-dollar bailout. I get Trump’s strategy and understand the necessity of the moves, but we should never have stuck ourselves into that situation to begin with. Future presidents will abuse their power many times worse because of the precedents set forth by Trump. We have set new standards on encroaching government into everyone’s lives over the overstated concerns of a normal, everyday, virus. For all of us, there are many major decisions that will have to be made as our reaction to this whole event will be scrutinized until the end of time, but at the heart of that is the massive amount of power that was abused during it without any forecast as to when governors, presidents and mayors would give that power back. They’ll show you all these charts showing peak viral infections as if that justifies all that they’ve been doing, but they can’t tell you when they will give that power back to the House and Senate of their states to stop the madness. They are all humans with fallacies, but that is the problem we should all have learned by now from history, we can’t give any one person ever this much power, especially for such an undetermined length of time.

I really think Mike DeWine means well. I think Amy Acton, from her point of view means well. Jon Husted the Lieutenant governor in Ohio I know means well—I’m sure of it. These are not bad people. But through their well-meaning actions they have screwed up just like any CEO might ruin the lives of the people working for their company if they make bad decisions. When people make mistakes, we have to limit the damage and in the wake of this crises, that was entirely a manufactured reality based on bad math and panicky people, many, many more lives have been lost and ruined than this Covid-19 virus will ever take. The amount of cases is not important because the state is seeking to use as much testing as possible to skew the numbers in their favor, but the death toll just isn’t going to be there to justify all the panic. The power grabs from the CDC and WHO cannot continue to use uncertainty to drag out this panic into seasonal awareness that continues to shut down everyone’s lives every couple of months for every little sniffle that we might get. What has been done already far exceeds what might be acceptable, and what is certain at this point is that we can never do it again.

Cincinnati’s Channel 12 Kicking Kids off a Playground: Lapdogs of the state and the mistakes of Coronavirus

The smoke is clearing, and we can start to see how all this happened, the shutting down of America over a virus. We’ve wondered about it for years, but this is the first time really that the United States surrendered its freedoms and constitutional parameters to join the world in a mass neurosis led by a global institution in the World Health Organization into government imposing itself on the citizens of America all in the name of well-intended safety. It had the stamp of radical socialists all over it from the beginning, but when they (professional scientists) tell you that millions upon millions of people are going to die, and you are a president of the United States, or a governor, you have to listen, and that was the flaw from the beginning. This attack on American life was intended to paralyze logic and it was shocking how quickly normal people were willing to throw out their constitution in the blink of an eye when faced with the possibility of mass death.

I have seen some of the ugliest behavior of the human condition since the start of this thing, particularly the disgusting behavior of the news media in stepping in to be the lap dogs of government. One of the worst things I saw was a Channel 12 reporter in Cincinnati who saw kids playing on a playground during the government ordered lockdown and they contacted police. The police were terrified to do their normal work because of this social distancing mandate that the government released so they weren’t taking normal calls from car accidents or small crimes, but they sure didn’t hold back to come to that playground to make the kids go back to their homes while they put police tape over the entrance. It was one of the lowest cases of human behavior I have ever seen, and it showed me exactly why we need the Second Amendment. It had only been a few weeks of the government essentially throwing away all due process and the human condition resorted to a very petty place of intellect. Our local news stations seeking ratings gold from an audience literally told by their government to stay in doors had a captive audience which they instantly did their part as law enforcers of the state to enforce the governor’s overstepping of his power.

I know what I’m willing to do to preserve my freedom and over this crises it almost came to that several times. Luckily, I have a lot more tools in the toolbox than just to get pissed off, so using those tools I found myself understanding completely the role of Oskar Schindler as depicted in the great movie, Schindler’s List. The Nazis did not just wake up one day and throw everyone into concentration camps, it happened over a period of time where every few days and weeks more compliance was imposed on the Jews until ultimately they were put in camps and killed, except for the people Schindler saved by deeming them necessary for work. I went through that kind of process and while death wasn’t the end result of people not on my list, the process was very similar, and it was stunning how many people followed so blindly. If there had been a train going to a concentration camp, people would have gotten on it to their deaths, for the good of everyone else. It was eerily similar and a real shock to my system to witness. Its one thing to intellectually know something, its quite another to see it in reality and to confirm your worst suspicions.

There was a period in Ohio where Governor DeWine and is health director Amy Acton took more rights away from the people of the state every single day starting with restaurant attendance then collapsing with literal house arrest. In a stunning move the mayor of Cincinnati was encouraging police to question why people were out on the roads, or why businesses might still be open. And the news media fell right in line like the Nazis of Hitler to enforce those laws. If an establishment was found to be open, the police came and boarded it up without question and politicians like that mayor, and several governors around the United States started to feel the power of their position and were clearly abusing it. All over a relatively mind virus that likely wouldn’t kill in the end more than .2%. For everyone else, it would feel just like another case of a mild flu. But for that we were turned literally into zombies of the state driven by a hungry media looking for full compliance driven by interests coming from outside the nation. The rest of the world was behaving just as badly, but for the first time, we followed some unelected bureaucrats at the World Health Organization without questioning their motives and the effects were truly troubling.

I had been warning everyone from the very first hour of this thing that none of it made sense, that we shouldn’t be listening to these health professionals because they were essentially repackaging the desires of their New Green Deal into “health awareness” by issuing out fake model projections that grossly overstated the danger in order to force compliance under which we foolishly gave them control. Amy Acton in Ohio was the best example of how a liberal college professor type suddenly became our ruler in chief with the stroke of a few pens, and suddenly we went from a free people prosperous and with bright futures to hiding in our homes hoping that the police didn’t pull us over or arrest us for trying to play on a playground. People like her believe hype with too much trust on international communities of scientists without the extra scrutiny that a person like me might bring to the table. Instead of being one of the logical leaders, all opinions of legislature was thrown out the window in the blink of an eye, the voters were now irrelevant as we even changed the date on an election, and the most panic driven lunatics were now telling the rest of us how to live and to what extent. It was amazing to watch.

Of course, as of this writing I’m speaking in past tense because most readers of this article won’t see it until its over and well documented into history. But the lessons must be understood. The models that people like Amy Acton used to take away so many rights of Ohio citizens, and eventually of other states from copycat governors afraid to not join the mob of insanity, found that the numbers were grossly inflated. The Trump administration started backing off those numbers this week when the situation became clear to them that this Coronavirus was no more dangerous to people than the common flu. It’s a hard position to walk back after literally scaring everyone to death, but that process started and now everyone has egg on their face from their overreaction. Its not enough to say, “sorry, we cost you several trillion dollars and we added reprehensibly to the national debt, we’ll do better next time.” No, that’s not going to fly. I can say that I won’t forget it. I’ve seen now martial law and it was the ugliest thing I never want to see again. Emergency powers driven by panic, a lack of skill and coming from interests outside of the United States are not acceptable and we all have a lot of work to do to make sure it never happens again—because the next time—-well, lets just not go there.

What Amy Acton has in Common with the Blackfoot Indians: Like the buffalo jump, we are being led over a cliff of Coronavirus to our doom, for the “greater good”

Well, finally there is something that Amy Acton from the Ohio Department of Health and I agree on. You might know her as the woman who has Mike DeWine wrapped around her finger and has essentially shut down almost all activity in the state of Ohio and inspired so many other very power hungry liberal governors across the nation to overreact to the Coronavirus. If you want to know why you are stuck in your home, why your businesses are closed and are bleeding money killing some of them forever, why there is no March Madness, no start to the baseball season, why Kings Island and Cedar Point are not going to open for at least another few months, you can blame Amy Acton and her crazy climate scientists from all over the world who have built bad models projecting the death toll of the Coronavirus and they have set policy to it. However, during her recent press conference on March 25th with the governor she showed who she really was, which I’ve been saying for a long time, she’s a crazy hippie chick who shouldn’t be anywhere near setting public policy of any kind. She spattered on and on about her love of Joseph Campbell, who also happens to be one of my favorite authors, and she dared to cite his great work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces as one of her main influencers. I was so touched by this I almost reached out to her with that common ground, however I know something about those people that they don’t seem to know about themselves. As a matter of fact, I used to be pretty deep into The Joseph Campbell Foundation when I was in my 20s and I left because of people like her, out of touch academic types who were attracted by the Joseph Campbell message of the power of myth, but clueless to the true nature of following one’s “bliss.” Instead, they had a propensity to act like the buffalo in some of Campbell’s stories in his best books about how the Blackfoot Indians used to treat them, and that became the range of depth of their understanding. Once I heard Amy Acton was a Joseph Campbell fan, I was convinced that everything I have said about her had been 100% true, maybe even more.

She also showed signs of the strain knowing what was coming next as this whole Coronavirus was coming to an end even as she continued to try to perk up the numbers to make her overreaction to it seem less severe. We were told that there would be millions of people dying of this stupid thing or on ICU back at the start of March and now that’s just not happening. The medical community is already trying to backtrack and say that they saved lives by acting early, but in all reality, Coronavirus was never that deadly. The scientists got it all wrong and they are responsible for literally trillions of dollars of lost GDP. Hippie chicks like Amy Acton as I have been saying is an activist using this virus to express her personal philosophies about life, and she thinks its great and heroic to sit in our homes and be quiet, and to say we are all in this together even as we now accept we have to be at least 6’ feet apart. Amy and I have one thing in common, we are both readers, and of our favorite authors Joseph Campbell we obviously share. And knowing many thousands of people like her over the years who have attended the Joseph Campbell Roundtables all across the country I feel quite comfortable in saying that those people should never be near any public policy making……..ever.

Surely since Amy Acton knows so much about Joseph Campbell then she knows in several of his books and lectures that he often spoke about the great buffalo jump that the Blackfoot Indians used to conduct to slaughter herds of the wild animals for food. What they would do was herd up the terrified beast into a rampage and direct them toward a cliff where the buffalo would jump over it and plunge to their deaths. This would then ignite some sort of Blackfoot Indian dance where the leaders of the community would dress up like the buffalo and the Indians would thank the dead bodies for sacrificing their lives so that they could live. The Blackfoot Indians believed that the spirits of the buffalo would return then to do it all again, so the little dance was important. For them it’s a wonderful example of the circle of life as identified by people spanning back 12,000 years of the practice. Essentially modern government hasn’t evolved much from that mentality, instead of the sacrifice being buffalo this time however, its average people suffering under the mistakes of a government power hungry and out of control. They are trying to paint the world in their image, of the need for sacrifice, and some notion of the circle of life, life, death, resurrection, or to cite the Vico Cycle from the great work of James Joyce which I’m sure Amy Acton is familiar with, theocracy, aristocracy, democracy, then finally anarchy. Putting health freaks in charge of our government, people like Amy Acton are resorting to their primal instincts which are not much different from the beliefs of the Blackfoot Indians—drive people over a cliff metaphorically slaughtering their individual natures only to have them rise up as a holistic species united through crises to unleash a new age. This is the anarchy those hippie types have been craving forever and they have run us all over a cliff economically, and emotionally to ignite that new age, where the scientists might be in charge instead of the industrialist job creator. It’s a slaughter they think is for the “greater good,” and we should all be very pissed off that its been done to us.

Yesterday I noticed that the news media, especially Channel 12 in Cincinnati had become one of the first to become the boot lickers of this power move as they told the police about some kids trying to play at a park near their homes. They proudly announced their actions on Twitter and showed the police showing up to tape off the area as restricted as they stated the children playing there were in violation of the Governor’s orders, who obviously is doing everything that the hippie chick Amy Acton tells him to. Every case of every new Coronavirus test suddenly became a weapon for the various departments of health in every county to trample all over individual lives all in the name of “safety,” and throw out the constitution for the benefit of all humanity, as defined by people like Amy Acton and her notions of sacrifice. For them the need for selfless acts are no different than the spirits of the buffalo knowing that the Indians need food and that they willingly jumped to their deaths to provide sustenance for the Blackfoot people, just as we all must by sacrificing our jobs, our restaurants and our potential for individual based happy lives. Yeah, I read a lot, likely much, much more than Amy Acton—I’ve seen all this before in history and its clearly happening now in America and specifically Ohio which has led the way in most cases to the trend of the rest of the country.

Ohio government led by Amy Acton by default of Governor DeWine’s lack of good judgment has revealed about herself a person not gifted in leadership. Her reliance on academic models to predict Coronavirus outbreaks were wrong and she knows the egg on her face is going to be ruthless. She is already talking about the arm chair quarterbacks who will scrutinize and skewer her for many months to come now that people can see that the death toll is nowhere near what Acton said they would be and that what she was really after was herding us all over a cliff to change our capitalist behavior, and through a death and resurrection, a new world of sacrifice and emphasis on collectivism would be given birth in the great cycles of life. If I didn’t know hundreds of people just like her over the years I might be surprised too, but I knew there was something kooky about her, and she clearly revealed it at that press conference. Individually, I might like talking to her—in a library or a bookstore about favorite books and great authors. But setting policy in Ohio—forget it. She shouldn’t be anywhere close to a decision, of any kind. Like the Blackfoot Indians, we can’t trust them to not see us as buffalo and lead us over a cliff to our own slaughter, because they believe it’s the only way to go—which is why they are so wrong to lead.
