Two years later the CDC has embraced the Great Barrington Declaration rather than doing a “quick and devastating takedown” as Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci called for the day after its release.

The bulk of Dr. Deborah Birx’s book is a brag fest about how she kept subverting the White House’s push to open up the economy – that is, allow people to exercise their rights and freedoms.
Every highly productive person – we don’t even have to speak of geniuses here – often ends up surrounded by resentful and mediocre people who have too much time on their hands. They use whatever limited talents they have to plot, confound, confuse, and ultimately wreck their betters. The demand to “comply” is always the watchword: it’s a tool of destruction.
The gradual rise of the 4th branch of government (the administrative “deep state” bureaucracy) which is very much the most powerful branch – has reduced the American political process to mere theater as compared with the real activity of government, which rests with the permanent bureaucracy.
Justice Gorsuch rules against the dictatorship by the administrative state, in favor of the system established by the Constitution’s framers.
Few things are more dangerous to the future of humanity than a failed and humiliated ruling class that still possesses power.
Gates is a main promoter and funder of lockdown ideology.
The massive political power for unelected bureaucrats to arbitrarily dehumanize Americans with mandates, fines, lockdowns, and prison at whim is what the Biden Administration, DOJ, and CDC are now fighting for.
In my lifetime, I’m not sure I can remember a single other time when a federal government rule imposed upon an entire country, one that affected so many people on a daily basis, was suddenly declared to be completely illegal – not just newly illegal in light of new data but illegal all along.
Elon Musk’s exciting and dramatic move represents a bold attempt to overthrow the regime of control, propaganda, and enforced opinion as manufactured by the administrative state.
Were those of us who, after the end of the Cold War, the rise of the Internet, and the turn of the 20th century, celebrated the inevitably of progress and freedom similarly wallowing in a negligent naivete about the evils that were waiting for the right moment to unleash themselves on the world?
Eban’s article adds tremendous detail about the great lengths to which our Fauci-led cabal of officials worked hard to suppress dissent on the question of lab-vs-natural origin.
The vaccine for this virus should never have been mandated. Having done so, public health has done itself deep harm. One wonders if the reputation of vaccines in general can recover.
This battle is much larger than the legal status of Ivermectin. What’s really at stake here is the idea of medical freedom itself. And freedom is a precondition for scientific inquiry and the search for the truth. It is also essential for health.
By all means, forget about Covid and live life as normally as possible in defiance of those who live to foster fear. But, never forget the disastrous Covid restrictions that created such destruction. We cannot let anyone off the hook, much less pretend that the policy disaster that created billions of personal tragedies never happened.
If you have had Covid, the CDC demonstrated in a chart, you gain robust immunity that is better than that of vaccination, especially concerning duration.
We won’t be fully safe until the powers and all existing lockdown plans are completely taken away from public-health authorities.
The science behind pandemic management needs to be decentralized and include genuine discussion and debate rather than allowing a small cabal to take full power while censoring everyone else.
The so-called Centers for Disease Control and Prevention purposely hid the vast majority of the data collected on COVID, to enhance its political power.
CDC’s drastic reversal on vaccine mandates seems little to do with a change in “the science,” and more to do with improving Democrats’ dismal approval ratings ahead of the November elections.
