Sweet Land of Liberty, Of Thee I Sing

“The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance”

John Philpot Curran, July 10, 1790

 

On September 30, 1727, David Martin walked off the ship Molly with a heavy heart.  The 36-year-old had witnessed the death and sea burial of his wife Anna during the crossing.  His father, Christian Martin, was still in prison in Europe having been jailed for his faith.  Making his way from Philadelphia to East Earl Township, he commenced farming the 370 acre plot he acquired from the family of William Penn for the sum of 57 pounds, 7 shillings.  In 1748, reunited with his father in Pennsylvania, it was written of them, “With him was also their father, still living, an old man of 79 years.  Especially the old man and his son David loving toward us.”


 

Born in Bern, Switzerland around 1691, David knew a life of persecution.  Born into the heretical tradition of the Mennonites, he would enter the unfortunate designation of being a “Poor Palatine” – a term given to the Swiss German religious outcast migrants from the region of southwestern Germany.  Precisely how he and 300 people made it to Rotterdam, Holland to get to John Hodgeson’s ship is not clear.  But it’s reasonable to expect that the trip through war infested, Catholic / Lutheran conflict filled lands was not an easy exercise.  And then, there’s the matter of crossing the Atlantic Ocean during the late summer months – not the best time to travel!  So, albeit bittersweet, I’m certain that the planks on the dock in Philadelphia offered the percussion of a song of liberty that ignited considerable relief.

 

I’m deeply grateful for the meticulous records I have of my family.  I love the stories of David’s father bringing a German scythe to the “new world” so that he could help his sons harvest the abundant wheat that grew along the Blue Ball Run.  I love the records of my family’s friend writing to George Washington pleading for clemency for my ancestors who provided food to British soldiers with their reference to the Biblical mandate, “If thine enemy hungers, feed him.”  And I’m grateful to Amos Hoover, Raymond and Elizabeth Martin and countless others who preserved the relics of our family so that I could hold them today.

 

On this July 4th, 2021, I find it fascinating that a nation celebrates “Independence” when the previous 20 months have completely indicted the dereliction thereof.  This land, defined by the mercantile patronage of industry, is more enslaved today than it was in 1776.  Then we had a monarch.  Now we have CEOs and their anonymous funders who tax far more than the fruits of our lands.  Then we had philosopher statesmen who were articulate, learned, and capable of debate.  Now we have Twitter-feed censorship curated by men who crafted utilities solely designed to indenture and addict.  After 245 years, we’re less capable to consider Liberty than when migrants boarded ships in Europe to begin life in America.

 

How few of us actually read the Declaration’s most critical and sober section? 

 

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

 

Living, as we are, under an alleged State of Emergency that has persisted for 18 months, with neither evidence nor criteria for an exit, it is manifestly evident that, even granting the presence of the scourge of plague that gave rise to the present condition, we no longer maintain the illusion thereof.  Notwithstanding the evidence, we find ourselves subjected to “abuses and usurpations” and efforts to reduce society under “absolute Despotism”.  Most recently, and without a single piece of evidence, we’ve been advised that the healthy pose a risk of mutagenicity that the acquiescent do not.  In point of fact, a January 28, 2021 article stated that, though the efficacy of gene therapy interventions “is not strictly proven, most… researchers believe,” that S-protein intervention works.  HOWEVER, in this study, they report concern that variants may in fact arise from the very technology being used.  https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2776039.

 

On this day, we celebrate the acquiescence of 47.8% of the population to kneel at the macabre mass served by Presidential and Papal Bull$#1+.  But, in the spirit of this Land of Liberty, the song that should be growing across the land is not the celebration of the monarchs and tyrants.  Rather it is the song of the 51.2% - the song of We The People – who, while coerced, threatened, and belittled, will not offer quarter to the enemy that is FEAR, COERCION, and DESPOTISM. 

 

So, on this July 4th, find a link to the song from Broadway’s Les Miserables and play it loudly…

 

Do you hear the people sing?

Singing the songs of angry men?

It is the music of the people

Who will not be slaves again!

When the beating of your heart

Echoes the beating of the drums

There is a life about to start

When tomorrow comes!

TRUTH DECAY...Where's the Fluoride?

0 comments

When a Journalism Lecturer Sells Out To Facebook... oh, I mean RAND Corporation

Written in response to Lead Stories' Dean Miller's relentless attack on facts by seeking confirmation bias for propaganda (reference below).


Dear Dean,

The epistemological trap in which you find yourself is instructive.  On the human level, I am deeply sympathetic.  On the social consequence level, far less so given the destructive and divisive power of the self-appointed, compensated, purveyors of “facts”.

 

1.      You allege to favor “experts in COVID”.  As COVID is a set of clinical symptoms that have been organized for just over a year, you cannot help but see the paradox in your criteria for expertise. No one could be an “expert” in a thing that has been characterized for less than a year with no causal evidence linking virus and disease to date.   You have not made any published effort to reference either scientific perspective of the highly controversial Gain of Function Moratorium or the researchers that raised genuine concerns about what was being done with NIAID’s funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and UNC Chapel Hill amplification of coronavirus pathogenicity from 2015 forward. 

 

2.      When the White House sent me to Tehran in 2005 for the International Congress on Bioethics based on my deep involvement in supplying technical and intelligence data on the counter-proliferation of biological agents (called into first public service in 2001 with the anthrax investigation), I was fascinated on what I met upon my return.  The New York Times and other media outlets wanted to ask me about nuclear weapons!  While I did meet with the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) leadership and engaged in several technical interactions, the media was officially disinterested in bioweapons as the story line was nuclear.  A year later, when I was asked to review the anthrax program at Jawaharal Nehru University, the “anthrax” story was politically too hot to handle so it was largely ignored by the U.S. media.

 

3.      The CDC and WHO announced that vaccines were the only way out of the pandemic before it was a pandemic.  The FDA stood in opposition to emergency use authorizations of countless therapy alternatives as an emergency vaccine authorization can only be activated if there are no treatment alternatives.  When Moderna was founded, the scientists associated with the company were deeply aware of RNA’s role both in protein synthesis and in DNA transfection.  Their use of the term “gene therapy” was a scientific and market distinction from being just another vaccine “loss-leader” company (https://www.statnews.com/2017/01/10/moderna-trouble-mrna/).  Outside of an Emergency Use Authorization for a symptom treatment (the only primary outcome that has been measured in the vaccine trials to date), mRNA technology has had a decade of abysmal failures.  In all of your reporting, you have not acknowledged that NO vaccine clinical trial has ever selected as a primary outcome a committee-determined set of two symptoms when those symptoms also are standard adverse reactions to the intervention.   Remember, Moderna Chief Medical Officer Tal Zaks stated, “our trial will not demonstrate prevention of transmission, because … you have to swab people twice a week for very long periods, and that becomes operationally untenable,” citing the need for a five-to-ten times longer trial length and even higher costs. https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj.m4037.  In short, your “expertise” does not include persons who are vaccine clinical trial experts, coronavirus experts, or the like. 

 

4.      While geopolitics make the laboratory conversation taboo, the absence of zoonotic evidence is problematic in the face of laboratory data showing that the most troublesome aspects – the S1 spike protein and the ACE2 receptor interaction – are precisely what was being amplified in labs since 2015!  While this can clearly be coincidental and while the idiopathic pneumonia in Wuhan may be simple lottery-odds improbability, you and others continue to ask the wrong question.  With over 45,000 known modifications of the subclade now called SARS CoV-2, the obsession with an “origin” story flies in the face of evidence.  Now there is ample published evidenced of immunology to what we’re calling SARS CoV-2 in Italy and France in the Fall of 2019 – long before the Wuhan “outbreak” (Carrat, F. et al. Eur. J. Epidemiol. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10654-020-00716-2 (2021).  And, if the Chinese data is to be accepted, 67 blood samples from “COVID-19” symptom patients from November and December 2019 did not have any SARS CoV-2 evidence (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00502-4#ref-CR1).

 

5.      Suggesting that Oklahoma University’s Dr. Douglas Drevets is an expert in Moderna’s mRNA gene therapy or COVID-19 is as much a stretch as it is to say that what you’re doing is “fact checking”.  With HIV/AIDS and neuro-infection expertise, I’m sure Dr. Drevets has great insights.  That he is supported by the Gilead Foundation (a COVID-19 conflicted party) is, once again, overlooked by fact-checkers.  The quote from Dr. Drevets (“In the clinical trials, patients were identified first by symptoms, and then were tested for the presence of virus to confirm that the symptoms were caused by the SARS-2-CoV rather than some other virus. So in the person infection comes first then symptoms, but in the study infected people were first identified by symptoms and then by the presence of virus.) is patently false.  None of these “facts” are anywhere in the Phase III trials for the Pfizer or Moderna studies.  Tragically, this is falsifiable by reading the study protocol!  In short, Dean Miller, in your “fact checking” of statements I made directly from Moderna’s OWN publications, you promulgated a lie.

 

And that’s the problem.  In over a year, not a single fact about CDC’s patents, NIAID’s funding, the 5,111 proprietary rights granted around SARS Coronavirus, the Wuhan Institute of Virology or Peter Daszak’s 2016 quote have been challenged.  THE EVIDENCE of an economic fraud is staring any human in the face and “Fact Checkers” are willfully avoiding THE FACTS:

 

“we need to increase public understanding of the need for MCMs such as a pan-influenza or pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of process, Daszak stated.”
