While the perceived ‘Red Scare’ following World War II on the fear of the potential rise of communism, anarchism, and other leftist ideologies infiltrating and subverting U.S. society and the federal government led to hysteria; today the fear of the pandemic undermining freedom and liberties in the U.S. and western democracies is very real. The ‘Omicron Scare’ has neatly become the variant of hysteria further leading from a narrative built on a dystopian society to that of a quasi-Marxist utopian civilization.
Due diligence to investigate the omicron variant is required instead of the unwarranted and erratic decisions to manifest further lockdowns, mandates, blame, and travel bans unless of course there is an eminent plan of oppression being advanced. Officials keep telling us to follow the science; and yet governments around the world decided to ‘act beyond an abundance of caution’. If we gave this some thought, omicron may be just what we need – a variant that mutated from a more deadly Delta variant and produces very mild cold and flu symptoms where it simply becomes the dominate variant with little to no deaths or impact on humanity.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, the South African doctor who informed the world of the new variant, was bewildered to see the world turned upside down over a virus where no one dying, mild symptoms, and those already vaccinated being infected. Coetzee said, “I have been stunned at the response. No one has in South Africa has been hospitalized with the omicron variant, nor has anyone believed to have fallen seriously ill with it.”
The initial reaction by the rich nations of the world was a travel ban on South Africa and five neighboring countries. One of the countries, Namibia, a country with 2.5 million inhabitants, had no omicron cases and only 400 total reported COVID cases, was blacklisted in the travel ban yet northern European countries with numerous omicron cases were still allowed to travel to countries that were banning African travelers.
I am far from woke in making everything racist, yet I might consider playing this card in this instance where it is not logical to isolate, punish, and inflict economic hardships on the part of the world that can least afford to be shut out. We know full well what the political left and the media would be saying if the former President, Donald Trump, executed this ban on mostly black nations. Biden criticized then-President Trump’s travel bans in the early days of the pandemic as “xenophobic”.
Countries throughout the world; specifically, those with democratically elected governments, have what they needed to push through further on their agenda of retaining power and control under the guise of another round of fear with the omicron variant. It is no surprise that the target of their actions is to leverage this latest variant scare to go after the remaining unvaccinated population. China, unlike democracies, have no need to create a fear-driven narrative in forcing vaccinations on their population while Western nations are in catch up mode, and the lesser influential countries are really of no consequence in the overall ploy and simply fall in line with globalists.
During a Biden – Dr. Anthony Fauci news conference on the omicron variant, they were both emphatic that the vaccine is the only way out of this new threat. Biden claimed the reason for the travel ban was to give people an opportunity to get vaccinated before it moves around the world to America and before it is too late. While Joe’s message was for the unvaccinated, Fauci stated that the boosters or third shots is likely to offer cross protection against the variants and we have every reason to believe that people will have some degree of protection. The words likely, believe, and some degree is not too assuring for a man that advocates the science.
Most reports coming in has seen the vaccinated being infected by the omicron variant. Perhaps it is the third shot or the new and improved version being developed and marketed for 2022 that will make the difference. Their tag-team presser did have some immediate impact with vaccinations hitting 2.2 million doses administered in America over a 24-hour period.
While the good cops had their say, the bad cops followed in behind with more draconian measures on the heels of omicron. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said the CDC is working on expanding a surveillance program at the busiest airports where airlines will be required to provide lists of travelers for testing, tracking, and forcing quarantines. It is quite absurd to be going after vaccinated law-abiding people paying to enter the country; yet hundreds of thousands of people entering illegally across the southern border are not being tested. It is estimated that 20% of the illegals are entering with COVID infections as they spread the virus to all corners of America. This is a sham! If the government really cared, the resources would be diverted to the border; however, this would impugn the government’s agenda.
Unbeknownst to most Americans, Congress passed the most egregious surveillance legislation known as H.R. 550 Immunization System Data Modernization and Expansion Act, a $400 million computerized data base that allows the CDC to record vaccine doses administered across America. While regimes around the world rolled out vaccine passport systems, America by privacy design had lacked the overreach by an overbearing central government.
This legislation would enable the federal government to share crucial information with local authorities and track unvaccinated Americans who will be targeted and forced to comply with global vaccination vision. The bill’s author said the system will notify people when they are due for their next vaccination and identify areas with low vaccination rates. The bill will also award funding to health departments and local government entities for agreeing to adopt and share the data collection set out by the CDC.
This bill is clearly a slippery slope where medicine has mixed with political ideologies. Government has weaponized the pandemic to infiltrate, control, and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply. This concept to demonize those who are not vaccinated is fascist in declaring these people are causing all the problems and begin to persecute them to accentuate their political creeds.
Countries within the EU are taking advantage of the ‘Omicron Scare’ by staying one-step of the U.S. with the most extreme measures by forcing vaccine mandates. Austria announced that they will be implementing forced vaccination early next year. Those refusing vaccination will face continuous lockdowns, hefty fines up to 7,200 eros, and potential jail time. Greece followed with announcing monthly fines after December. Germany’s incoming chancellor, Olaf Scholz, voiced his support for mandatory vaccinations, blaming the unvaccinated for the problems in Germany.
European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen then raised the stakes in calling for discussions on a common approach to implement forced vaccination throughout the entire EU. Responding to the EU chief, Hermann Kelly, the President of the Irish Freedom Party, said state coercion should be resisted. He continued that if we allow the state to dictate what chemical or biological agent you must take inside your body, it becomes questionable on what liberties remain. Kelly stated, “We are witnessing the dangerous Chinafication of Europe with mandatory digital certificates.”
Australia has taken the unnerving measures to build numerous quarantine camps strategically located throughout the country for the intended purpose of quarantining international travelers to ensure they are clear to move about. There are reports, however, of more sinister implications. A 26-year-old woman was removed from her home by masked police against her will for potentially being in close contact with a covid positive case even though she tested negative. The police surrounded her home and told her that she was being taken away and placed in detention for 14 days at the Howard Springs Center of National Resilience, the 2,000-capacity COVID camp outside of Darwin.
The female prisoner shared in a podcast following her release that you feel like a prisoner; it is inhumane what they are doing, they just overpower you and you are literally nothing. She said camp guards threatened her that they would extend her time in the camp next time. Masked police also set up roadblocks along a perimeter to catch three teens who escaped over the barbed wire at the same facility – they had all tested negative for COVID too.
The chief minister of Australia’s Northern Territory, Michael Gunner, expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Scott Morrison for the military personnel and army trucks to carry out the round ups in the territory where people can only leave their homes for medical treatment. Gunner angrily declared that anyone who opposes vaccine mandates, even if vaccinated, will be regarded by the government as an “anti-vaxxer.” He said, “If you support, champion, give a green light, give comfort to, support anyone who argues against the vaccine, you are an anti-vaxxer. Your personal vaccination status is utterly irrelevant.”
Canada, with no political resistance in the country, has acted without impunity to lockdown all unvaccinated citizens from travel or from entering restaurants and events; along with full mask mandates whether you are vaccinated or not; including young children all day at school. Instead of the Australian quarantine camps, the Canadian federal government has occupied hotel camps where citizens arriving at airports; whether they are elderly, fully vaccinated with three shots, and tested negative are escorted by police to be quarantined in squalid conditions with no heat or toiletries, very little food to sustain yourself, and restricted contact with the outside world.
After World War II, a series of trials were held in Nuremburg, Germany to hold members of the Nazi party responsible for war crimes. The trials were led by the U.S. in what became known as the Nuremburg Trials where German physicians responsible for conducting unethical medical procedures on humans in concentration camps during the war were tried. In 1947, the prosecution submitted a memorandum to the United States Counsel for War Crimes outlining ten points known as ‘The Code’ that was reiterated by the judges delivering their guilty verdict.
The Code’s permissible medical experiments explicitly states the voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person should have the legal capacity to give consent (to the COVID vaccine); should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved to make an understanding and enlightened decision; including the duration of the methods, hazards, and long term effects upon one’s health which may possibly come from the participation. The human subject should have the liberty to bring the experiment to an end if one has reached a physical or mental state where continuation cannot continue; and the medical action must be terminated if there is probable cause to believe continuation may result in injury, disability, or death to the subject.
The Code is the most important document in the history of clinical research ethics, which had a massive influence on human rights. In America, it formed the basis for the regulations issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services for the ethical treatment of human subjects; and as of 2019, 173 countries have signed off on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights that prohibits medical experimentation without the free consent of the subject. Sadly, and thankfully, the Nuremburg Code became the cornerstone to enlighten humanity on bioethics following the reverberation of ghastly Nazi atrocities.
To be clear, the COVID vaccines are still considered experimental medicine being administered and has not passed through the full regulatory process of clinical studies on the effectiveness and long-term impacts on one’s health. This raises numerous unanswered questions, including whether the ‘Omicron Scare’ has overridden the Nuremburg Code. Why are people who have been vaccinated three times required to wear a mask and are still being infected with COVID? Why are the ingredients of the vaccines not listed on the shipping documentation like other medicines? Why did a judge suppress the ingredients in the vaccines for 55 years? Are you sure the vaccine does not contain graphene oxide and are you aware this poisonous substance can be manipulated externally once it is in the human body? Why are people being forced under duress to inject the vaccine or lose their employment? Do you know how your red blood cells are reacting after taking the vaccine? Why are young children suddenly coming down with COVID after so many adults are vaccinated yet there were no issues for them prior to vaccinations? Why are there more deaths from COVID after the vaccine rollout than prior? Finally, where does this experiment lead and to what end, at what costs to society, and what are our limits for ongoing injections?
It was not long ago when people who had concerns over forced vaccinations and quarantine camps were labeled conspiracy theorists. Many vaccine supporters and politicians claimed such actions would be extreme and not legal; and yet today these mandates have become mainstream and those who object on the basis of the Nuremburg Code are being persecuted. Will forced vaccines lead to war crimes against humanity?
What of this injustice of the vaccine mandate and its mark on history? If we just take a moment to think through the confusion of the pandemic and understand the moral issues being undermined by the powers seeking to control society and usurp western democracy, then we may refuse to allow our sacrifices for freedom to be squandered. It lies with the people on whether your conscience becomes a trumpet call to like-minded people, together in steadfast perseverance with mutual purpose and support to go on to finish in a way worthy of our liberties and citizenship.
Some have asked if God cares in these days of national and global calamity. The significance of this answer is not discovered simply by human ingenuity scrutinizing the methods of divine judgement. Rather, natural laws of mankind’s inept abilities and political actions of injustice work through periodic courses of tribalistic history set against a heavenly appointed destiny over millenniums. This we can not easily explain, but we can give this current calamity a profound and prayerful significance by recognizing in the moment of injustice an opportunity to intercede; knowing God’s love prevails and the instilled joy is not limited by death.
Out of the ashes and ruins, a nation will grow a worthier life of good citizenship; stirred by justice and freedom in realizing our blessing in this hour of distress. Leaders who simply follow their science as their god are obstinate in their actions and they no not acknowledge, and they do not see the real master over one’s body and soul is God.
