Justin Trudeau Ducks the Great Trucker Revolt

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

This is the largest and latest example of the revolt and one that could make the biggest difference yet. But it is only one sign among many that the ruling elites in most countries have overplayed their hand. They have arrogantly imposed their plans for everyone else based on the opinions of only a few and without real consultation with experts with differences of opinion or with the people whose lives have been profoundly affected by the pandemic response.

The Covid Narrative Falls Apart in South Africa

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The sad, tragic fact is that their measures, from lockdowns to masks to even vaccine mandates, have done little to nothing to curb the spread of this highly contagious respiratory virus, and taken as a whole they’ve likely done more harm than good.

Bureaucrats Riding the Omicron Wave

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Repeat after me: Keep our community safe. Keep our campus safe. We will be safe if you all behave safely. Safety is our first priority. If you’re not with us, you’re with the virus. Still today, at places like Princeton, grievances can often only be aired in private about the constant dreary pronouncements from official authorities purporting to be so very concerned for your health and safety, yadda yadda yadda.

Ontario the Cruel

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The children of Ontario are victims of nearly two solid years of psychologically and emotionally damaging messages emanating from public health officials and social media celebrity doctors about how dangerous they are to the people they love; that they are dirty disease carriers, that they could be ‘granny killers’ and inadvertently pass along a deadly virus to their loved ones. They could murder their grandparents! In turn, many Ontario parents have been rendered so utterly terrified about the exaggerated risks to their children from Covid-19 that they are now fully convinced that all children are a health risk to others.

Defeat the Mandates

What I Saw at the DC Rally

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

During one of the speeches, I can’t remember which, we were implored to turn to a neighbor, and give them a hug. After the first, most obvious hug in such a situation, people often stop, having fulfilled their social duty. But everyone it seemed was looking for a third, and a fourth, making up perhaps, for lost time.

The DC Rally and the Rise of the Resistance

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

By long American tradition, protest movements manifest themselves most fully in gatherings in Washington, D.C, starting at the Washington Monument and culminating in speeches at the Lincoln Memorial. At long last, after two years of astonishing attacks on fundamental rights that most everyone once believed were protected by the U.S. Constitution, this happened today, January 23, 2022.

Covid Lockdowns Nearly Wrecked My Family and Millions of Others

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

When the world shut down and snatched routine from our family, I did not have to be a genius to know the harm that would befall our family; the profound pain and hardship this would inflict on our family. Our family fell into deep despair, but no one cared. If we disagreed with the lockdown, we were grandma killers.

Domestic Flight Vaccine Mandates: Where Is the Data?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Bloomberg, a business news agency, without data to support its claims, is calling for airlines to police domestic flight vaccination status and possibly, unnecessarily, negatively, impact their business in order to get more people vaccinated. To what end?

Military-Aged Males and Booster Shots: Why the Concern

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Most young, healthy, vaccinated military members have a probability so close to zero of having negative outcomes from Covid that there is no feasible reason to consider a booster. Even Dr. Paul Offit, one of the biggest advocates of vaccines, recently advised his 20-something son – an age range about 20% of the military falls into – that he has no need of a Covid booster shot.
