In the end, it all comes down to well meaning but twisted ambition, with a nice big helping of good old fashioned and really evil, greed.
At the beginning of this time we’ll forever simply call ‘covid’, we dutifully lined up in front of our neighbourhood Costco while the owners of small independently owned stores were forced to lock their doors and watch helplessly as the businesses they built over a lifetime of blood, sweat, and tears drifted away from them. Over time, we’ve become accustomed to measures like masks and distancing rules, and regulations that allow 18,000 people to watch a hockey game (mostly without masks), or 100,000 people to watch a football game (entirely without masks), while the parents of grade 12 athletes can not come into a gym to watch their own children compete for a long prepared for championship title.
Today we wait to see which vaccine mandate will rock someone’s world next. It’s become clear over the last several months of mandates that a good percentage of people (somewhere around 25%) feel they’re being forced into a vaccination they aren’t so sure about taking (they’re still not approved) and a further percentage of people (8 to 10%) will simply not agree to take an emergency ordered vaccine. I’m not saying any of this is right or wrong. I’m just saying it clearly makes no sense. I’m just saying..
Everyone I’ve talked to since covid has begun, and I mean EVERYONE has admitted in private conversation if not very publicly, that this restriction makes no sense, or that restriction is contradictory to another one. EVERYONE admits the various restrictions, rules, and regulations our governments have used to respond to covid just don’t add up. And for the few people who can’t bring themselves to admit it, even to a close friend.. just ask yourself how the “two weeks to flatten the curve” is going at the two year mark.
For me, the biggest mystery in an ocean of mysteries has been the complete lockdown on access to and information about medical therapies. Anyone who puts in the effort to look behind the curtain of attack articles, can see there are preventative treatments, early treatments, and now “long covid” treatments which are showing tremendous success. As you can see at ivmmeta.com and ivmstatus.com, 0ver 25% of the world’s population has access to at least ONE of the effective treatments. While millions of Canadians chuckle at unintelligent, simple people who take Ivermectin (horse paste they call it), those poor simple people in nations such as India and Japan have nearly eliminated covid. Here, all we hear is that vaccines are the ONLY answer. Usually they say it’s “the best way” to fight covid. They leave out the part where they’ve banned every other way of fighting covid. You can argue if you want about how widespread Ivermectin use is in India and Japan, but you can’t really argue with data. Take a look at these graphs from worldometers.com and you’ll have to conclude something different is going on in countries where early treatment options aren’t always the butt of the latest woke-joke.
Sorry for the long lead-in. If you stayed with it, here’s the reward. There’s a new book out by best selling author and life long US Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Yes, this is the son of THE Bobby Kennedy, and the nephew of President John F Kennedy. If you’re one of the millions of ‘simple’ people like me who just can’t understand why we’re not even allowed to talk about actually treating covid, this book will set out an argument that makes it all finally come together. That’s what The Real Anthony Fauci is all about. Either this book is shedding a WORLD of lies, or it will put AN ENTIRELY NEW LIGHT on what is driving the forces behind covid-19 vaccine mandates. If you have a bit of time, check out the video interview below with RFK Jr. The allegations go well beyond disturbing and right to shocking. It’s going to be interesting to see if this book will make a difference. For me. I don’t really care what happens to Dr. Fauci. I just want politicians to show courage and stand up for the most vulnerable people. It’s time to save lives by allowing Albertans, and Canadians to use some of the two dozen or so medical treatments which have emerged to fight covid in the last two years.
Here’s the description of this book by Amazon
Pharma-funded mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hero. He is anything but.
As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe. Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists—whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward.
During more than a year of painstaking and meticulous research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unearthed a shocking story that obliterates media spin on Dr. Fauci . . . and that will alarm every American—Democrat or Republican—who cares about democracy, our Constitution, and the future of our children’s health.
The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America’s Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.
In early 2000, Fauci shook hands with Bill Gates in the library of Gates’ $147 million Seattle mansion, cementing a partnership that would aim to control an increasingly profitable $60 billion global vaccine enterprise with unlimited growth potential. Through funding leverage and carefully cultivated personal relationships with heads of state and leading media and social media institutions, the Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance exercises dominion over global health policy.
The Real Anthony Fauci details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent.
This is not just another protest – Freedom Convoy is heading to Ottawa
To our Fellow Canadians, the time for political over reach is over. Our current government is implementing rules and mandates that are destroying the foundation of our businesses, industries and livelihoods. Canadians have been integral to the fabric of humanity in many ways that have shaped the planet.
We are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, and now it seems it is happening here. We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people. Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed, and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive. It’s our duty as Canadians to put an end to this mandates. It is imperative that this happens because if we don’t our country will no longer be the country we have come to love. We are doing this for our future Generations and to regain our lives back.

Corporate Capture & Youth Checkout: The Covid Scorecard
The decade past has witnessed a Great Realignment. (Mind we said realignment, not reset.) The election of Barack Obama through Donald Trump and Covid-19 has seen a tectonic shift in the plates beneath society. Alliances have been broken. Power has shifted. Loyalties have disappeared.
The result is a new coalition, a cult alliance of tech, knowledge-based industry, culture and corporatism. Under cover of social unrest and virus paranoia these former antagonists found common cause in punishing the middle and lower classes of society for not acknowledging their elevated, superior status. (Translation: they voted for Trump.)
These woke apostles are unapologetic. Through censorship, cancel culture and financial, leverage they’ve created an oligopoly unabashed in bare-knuckled self-interest. And to constantly remind you that they’re in charge.
To understand how revolutionary this alliance is one need only recall the dirigiste fervour of the 1960s. While it seemed to everyone at the time that society might tip in the maelstrom of riot and protest, the corporate side never blinked. They viewed the Weathermen and the Red Brigade as fringe outfits that would never see power. They held to the status quo (or privilege in today’s CRT newspeak.)
That has changed, because of writers such as French socialist economist Thomas Piketty. Thanks to him Corporate America is now obsessed with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), not shareholder value. It is dominated by HR departments deeply committed to radical notions of social justice and racial equity. Inspired by the example of Michelle Obama, they’ve made Wall Street into Woke Street.
As we wrote in February of 2021 “the New Left now ruthlessly employs Big Tech, Wall Street and the media against its idealogical enemies— including some of its former allies… the Democratic Party of 2021 has morphed from brave to slave, dedicated to intellectual conformity, not contrary opinions. Gone are the civil libertarians like (William) Kunstler. In their place are AOC and her brigades of SJWs purveying hate-speech laws and attacking deniers of the “true climate religion”. First amendment rights have been replaced by cancel-culture indictments.”
Jordan B. Peterson, who recently resigned his tenured position at University of Toronto, describes the corporate submission: “What in the world is wrong with you? Can’t you see that the ideologues who push such appalling nonsense are driven by an agenda that is not only absolutely antithetical to your free-market enterprise, as such, but precisely targeted at the freedoms that made your success possible?
“Can’t you see that by going along, sheep-like (just as the professors are doing; just as the artists and writers are doing) that you are generating a veritable fifth column within your businesses? Are you really so blind, cowed and cowardly?”
While this corporate surrender has transpired, another schism has developed under cover of the Covid-19 pandemic panic. Its effect could be just as enduring. This one is based on age.
The group in society most vulnerable to the ravages of the pandemic is the 55+ cohort, the aging Boomers— the same one orchestrating the reaction to the virus. They are also the most afraid of its impact on them personally. It would be no exaggeration to say those health concerns have been reflected in the overbearing lockdown, mask, distancing and detention policies used against the virus. The generation that once worshipped free speech was quick to abandon civil liberties in its panic to save its own hide.
But younger generations who are far less vulnerable to the virus are tired of being participants in the psycho-dramas of aging the Boomers and their death phobia. And they’ve reached their end. They now flock to clubs, arenas and stadiums to see their friends. They know some of them will get sick, but 99.99 percent of them will be fine even if infected.
They are dismissive of the political shell game of their elders and the autocrats of Big Health. And, as we can see from one of the major sports, they’re headed in a new direction.
NHL players, God bless ‘em, have recognized that old people’s worries are not their worries. For months the league has gone with the Covid catechism to please politicians. Players were ordered to be vaccinated. Anyone testing positive from the wonky PCR test was sidelined. Even asymptomatic players. Games were played with undermanned rosters.
With 100 percent vaccinated, the league still saw 70 percent of players test positive. So the NHL now says “No more”. Only players who show symptoms will be removed from play. Excellent athletes are not 81-year-old U.S. senators shaking in their Depends.
With the accepted narrative now collapsing— Britain has abandoned the mask and lockdown mandates— more jurisdictions will do contrition for overshooting the mark. Dottering Joe Biden can talk about belatedly sending out 400 million masks, but he’s lost the room. Under 50s have moved on.
The only question is how long the ESG folks propping him up will wait before he’s sent overboard. While health is important, everything is second to their power.
