2020 The Year That America Went Dark

As I sit at my desk and replay this incredible year in my mind I see a country that is experiencing remarkable economic growth. Americans of all levels are achieving great economic realities.  And a President who is unabashedly a fighter for America and Americanism – the nation appears to love him for that in spite of his personality imperfections, in spite of a historically aggressive antagonistic and hateful National Media Complex and Establishment Political System.  All appears to be very good and promising. But then the SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19] virus, aka coronavirus, comes to our shores, and life would go dark for Americans who love freedom.

On March 13 U.S President Donald Trump declared a National State of Emergency to marshall all viable resources of the nation, private and government, and an initial $42.6 billion to defeat the threatening virus.  He created a 12 person virus advisory board of medical professionals and experts to assist him.  But two of the members would prove to be much as Brutus and Cassius were to Ceasar during his reign.  As it turns out Dr. Deborah Birx is closely connected to extreme liberal multi-billionaire Bill Gates – she sits on the Gates-funded Foundation Board, as reported by gatewaypundit.com.  Dr. Anthony Fauci’s company US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), along with biotech company Moderna, has received $9 MILLION from the Gates Foundation to develop a vaccine to treat COVID-19, as reported by nationalfile.com. Oh! Did I mention that they are connected to the Democrat Party BIG TIME?!  Do you think that they may have a dog in this hunt? That they may want to have vaccinations required for personal financial benefit? Do you think that they may not be wholeheartedly on the side of the President when he wants to reduce the fear level and get the nation’s people back to work, with or without a “vaccine”?

The COVID-19 virus came as a  godsend for the Democrat Party, which thrives on making people feel that they are weak and helpless and need the government to save them.  Remember, that it was former Democrat President Obama’s Chief of Staff  Rahm Emanuel who famously said ‘Never let a good crisis go to waste.’ What could be better than a novel virus that can be presented to be literealy the second coming of the Black Plague via the Establishment Media?.  And then you add that this is an election year to possibly get rid of a true outsider president who has achieved positive national good in 3 years of his first term than any Establishment President has ever done in even 2 terms.  You talk about a dream scenario for both Democrats and Establishment Elites of both Parties, this is it.

Late 1700’s Irish statesman and philosopher, Edmund Burke prophetically stated, “People never give up their liberties but under some delusion.” I cannot think of no greater delusion than to think that the government can save you from a virus that has been demonstratively presented as a deadly killer.  And it has worked masterfully, for the moment.  Yes, an argument can be made that the American people have been surrendering freedoms and liberties for quite some time.  But if someone would have told me in January that by December healthy Americans in mass would be following simple edits by the government requiring us to walk around outside, and inside, sufficating ourselves wearing masks, barring healthy children from getting in-class education, forcing businesses to close and citizens to lose jobs, without just government compensation, to not be able to be with loved ones in the hospitals or final care facilities – even sa they pass over, shutter ourselves in our homes for days and months on end, and that on November 10th Yougov.com would come out with a poll saying that nearly two out of three Americans would be okay with the government imposing a 30-day lockdown. I would’ve said that they were crazy. That they were koo koo for cocoa puffs.  I would have said that they did not know the American spirit. I would have said that sounds like something from NAZI time.  That couldn’t happen here.  The American people wouldn’t stand for such over the top mistreatment from their government.  Oops!  I guess I missed on that one BIG TIME!

It was Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels, who famously stated that, “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth. If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it.”  The great lie here is the purposeful presentment by the government and the Establishment Media that the SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19] virus, aka coronavirus, is deadly to the vast majority of the population.  In actuality, it is the exact opposite, according to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention [CDC] as of November 7th.

CDC Provisional COVID deaths

I believe that if this was a true national and worldwide crisis we would be seeing reports of world leaders getting together strategizing on how to defeat the virus and comparing data on what has worked and not worked. Success stories such as in Sweden would be widely known. And here in America State leaders would be comparing what strategies and techniques have worked and not worked. News reports would be highlighting that the worldwide COVID-19 affected are 57,407,792, but the recoveries are 39,871,865 and the number of attributed death is just 1,368,818, leaving a 3% death rate, according to worldometers.info. In America, a nation of over 300,000,000 people, only 258,000 is said to have died from the virus, while over 7,000,000 have recovered, according to worldometers.info.  If this “crisis” was being reported ethically and honestly, we would be celebrating the number of people that are surviving this virus and there would be more focus on calming fears, not stoking them. But the exact opposite is happening.  No one is attempting to back us off the ledge.  The blatant lack of truth and honesty in the reporting of the “crisis” is nothing more than stunning.  And can be called nothing else other than propaganda. But, why is the question.

I truly believe that during the initial response to this virus that no one knew about and President Trump enacting the National State of Emergency were genuine and authentic.  But then human nature and the natural instincts of humans in power who have an insatiable appetite to control and dominate others for their own desires, benefit, and aspirations came into play. And after three-plus years of outright character and political assassination of President Trump his enemies, on both sides of the political aisle, saw this crisis as one that was too perfect to pass up.  Donald Trump, similarly to John F. Kennedy, could not be allowed to have a second term as President of the United States.

I have often referred to Trump, as President, being such a maverick, so strong in personality, will, and persona, so untethered to the good ‘ol boy political culture in D.C, that he was a true people’s President, that he was the huge turd in their punch bowl. Trump’s position regarding shutting down the nation’s economy to defeat this virus has always been that it could not kill the nation – that the shutdown was going to be temporary.  Early in the fall, Trump attempted to change course and open himself to alternative positions by bringing on Dr. Scott Atlas who’s views dramatically differed from Dr. Fauci and Birx regarding shutdowns and attacking the virus.  But, after days, weeks, and months of the constant mantra of news reports, commercials, PSA [public service announcements], and seeing big corporate institutions regurgitating messages of gloom and doom and death, all due to the virus if you don’t comply with the dictates of the government’s edict, the inertia was so great that we started to severely self censor ourselves and physical fights have ensued between those who don’t comply or conform and those who do. We had become comfotable with being compliate with Owelian mine control.  Four isn’t four if the government says that it is five. And what’s more troubling, is that since some government critters have realized that so many Americans are so easily swayed to surrender our freedoms and liberties, lose our livelihoods, give up social interaction, lose our homes, become paupers, and lock ourselves in our homes without a law being passed, just based on a literal request, they may not soon take the foot off the necks and backs nor remove the chains from the American people.  Nor may they not soon forget how they have conditioned us like Pavlov’s dog to respond so obediently to their requests.  They may determine that the 60 plus years of mis and false education have conditioned a majority of the American people into believing that we no longer rule over them [the government], but that it is they who rule over us [the governed].

A lady asked Ben Franklin as he was exiting Independence Hall, “What have we got? A republic or a monarchy?” In which he responded, “A republic, IF you can keep it.” By the look of things, this year is the year that many of us have decided that we do not want to keep it.  If the government can get so many of us to voluntarily surrender cherished liberties in mass at such great personal pain so easily, without much mental reservation or questioning or rebuttal, due to a virus that kills less than 5% of those who come down with it, what else could they get us to do?  How can the shiny light of freedom truly shine when there are so many of us so willing to douse it ourselves?

Wow! This is one of the best articles you have written! Such truth is spread throughout. We, as Americans, must wake up to the truth and reality of being “handled” by the biased media and select government officials and influencers. At what point will Americans decide we have been coerced into giving up our very basic freedoms?

You have exposed reality and documented the facts. Thank you for being a patriot. Well written!
