Holocaust Survivors Call on International Criminal Court to Bring COVID Pandemic Perpetrators to Justice

Have to fess up that I never liked Alex Jones. I always considered him a buffoon and a clownish carnival barker, never to be taken serious, but more akin to the consummate conspiracy theorist’s version of pro wrestling-like bluster and self-promotion. That’s certainly how many people continue to view Jones. Fast forward to the Brave New World of COVID-19 wherein a lapdog and co-opted mainstream media is nowhere to be found by those of us desperately searching for answers; Nowhere to be found for truth-seekers looking for investigative journalism and perceptive news analysis. Enter Alex Jones. Yes, the carnival barker himself. Contrary to his reputation for bluster, overstatement and hyperbole, Mr. Jones may have redeemed himself with me. My jaw dropped when I stumbled across an excellent and comprehensive video presentation by a Dr. Richard Fleming on when I discovered that this presentation was presented on none other than Alex Jones’ ‘InfoWars’ show, an online platform I normally would not be caught dead giving a moment of my time to. But such is the state of current affairs when the Military Industrial Media Pharma Complex have so commandeered COVID information that anyone thirsty for clarity and truth will take it anywhere they can get it. Dr. Richard Fleming appeared on Jones’ show and gave a superb textbook presentation on COVID-19, on the cadre of vaccines, the supposed efficacies of the vaccines, the underreporting of adverse reactions, underreporting of vaccine injuries, the very revealing and otherwise substandard data they presented to the FDA for securing the Emergency Use Authorization. And most jaw-dropping was Fleming adding his voice to the growing chorus of people calling for the heads of Anthony Fauci, Ralph Baric, Peter Daszak and others for creating the “bioweapon” SARS CoV-2. Yes, he went there.

A powerful moment in Dr. Fleming scorched earth presentation was a letter he presented written, signed and hand-delivered by three living survivors of the Nazi Holocaust. The letter, delivered to the ICC, the International Criminal Court, is demanding that the perpetrators behind the SARS CoV-2 Pandemic be brought to justice. Most prominent on Fleming’s preliminary list of suspects is Anthony Fauci, Ralph Baric, nanotechnology expert who allegedly helped to develop the lab-engineered virus at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance who allegedly contracted the Gain of Function lab work to China’s Wuhan BSL-4 laboratory. Also listed to be taken before the ICC is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. You may recall that Dr. David Martin several months ago presented evidence to attorney Reiner Fuellmich documenting in excruciating detail the timeline of Coronavirus Patents that were filed and the cadre of people and pharmaceutical companies all intertwined in the development of SARS CoV2. Including the CDC! Dr. Fleming and David Martin aren’t the only ones alleging that SARS CoV-2 is the product of biological warfare, engineered in a lab. Attorney Francis Boyle, who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 (BWATA) has spoken out several times and stated in no uncertain terms that SARS CoV2 is the offspring of a bioweapon. Fleming is calling for a Nuremberg 2.0 Trial.

Are Government Round-ups of Resistors in Our Future? John Whitehead Ponders

Sometimes you run across a treatise that’s written so perfectly that it needs no emphasis or embellishments. John Whitehead consistently delivers thought provoking pieces. This one is no different. I’m providing both a link to his site as well as his commentary.

By John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead September 28, 2021

No doubt concentration camps were a means, a menace used to keep order.”—Albert Speer, Nuremberg Trials

John Whitehead

It’s no longer a question of whether the government will lock up Americans for defying its mandates but when.

This is what we know: the government has the means, the muscle and the motivation to detain individuals who resist its orders and do not comply with its mandates in a vast array of prisons, detention centers, and FEMA concentration camps paid for with taxpayer dollars.

It’s just a matter of time.

It no longer matters what the hot-button issue might be (vaccine mandates, immigration, gun rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, healthcare, criticizing the government, protesting election results, etc.) or which party is wielding its power like a hammer.

The groundwork has already been laid.

Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the President and the military can detain and imprison American citizens with no access to friends, family or the courts if the government believes them to be a terrorist.

So it should come as no surprise that merely criticizing the government or objecting to a COVID-19 vaccinecould get you labeled as a terrorist.

After all, it doesn’t take much to be considered a terrorist anymore, especially given that the government likes to use the words “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably.

For instance, the Department of Homeland Security broadly defines extremists as individuals, military veterans and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”

Military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan may also be characterized as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats by the government because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

Indeed, if you believe in and exercise your rights under the Constitution (namely, your right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share your political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign), you could be at the top of the government’s terrorism watch list.

Moreover, as a New York Times editorial warns, you may be an anti-government extremist (a.k.a. domestic terrorist) in the eyes of the police if you are afraid that the government is plotting to confiscate your firearms, if you believe the economy is about to collapse and the government will soon declare martial law, or if you display an unusual number of political and/or ideological bumper stickers on your car.

According to the FBI, you might also be classified as a domestic terrorism threat if you espouse conspiracy theories or dare to subscribe to any views that are contrary to the government’s.

The government also has a growing list—shared with fusion centers and law enforcement agencies—of ideologies, behaviors, affiliations and other characteristics that could flag someone as suspicious and result in their being labeled potential enemies of the state.

This is what happens when you not only put the power to determine who is a potential danger in the hands of government agencies, the courts and the police but also give those agencies liberal authority to lock individuals up for perceived wrongs.

It’s a system just begging to be abused by power-hungry bureaucrats desperate to retain their power at all costs.

It’s happened before.

As history shows, the U.S. government is not averse to locking up its own citizens for its own purposes.

One need only go back to the 1940s, when the federal government proclaimed that Japanese-Americans, labeled potential dissidents, could be put in concentration (a.k.a. internment) camps based only upon their ethnic origin, to see the lengths the federal government will go to in order to maintain “order” in the homeland.

The U.S. Supreme Court validated the detention program in Korematsu v. US (1944), concluding that the government’s need to ensure the safety of the country trumped personal liberties.

Although that Korematsu decision was never formally overturned, Chief Justice Roberts opined in Trump v. Hawaii (2018) that “the forcible relocation of U. S. citizens to concentration camps, solely and explicitly on the basis of race, is objectively unlawful and outside the scope of Presidential authority.”

Roberts’ statements provide little assurance of safety in light of the government’s tendency to sidestep the rule of law when it suits its purposes. Pointing out that such blatantly illegal detentions could happen again—with the blessing of the courts—Justice Scalia once warned, “In times of war, the laws fall silent.”

In fact, the creation of detention camps domestically has long been part of the government’s budget and operations, falling under the jurisdiction of FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA’s murky history dates back to the 1970s, when President Carter created it by way of an executive order merging many of the government’s disaster relief agencies into one large agency.

During the 1980s, however, reports began to surface of secret military-type training exercises carried out by FEMA and the Department of Defense. Code named Rex-84, 34 federal agencies, including the CIA and the Secret Service, were trained on how to deal with domestic civil unrest.

FEMA’s role in creating top-secret American internment camps is well-documented.

But be careful who you share this information with: it turns out that voicing concerns about the existence of FEMA detention camps is among the growing list of opinions and activities which may make a federal agent or government official think you’re an extremist (a.k.a. terrorist), or sympathetic to terrorist activities, and thus qualify you for indefinite detention under the NDAA. Also included in that list of “dangerous” viewpoints are advocating states’ rights, believing the state to be unnecessary or undesirable, “conspiracy theorizing,” concern about alleged FEMA camps, opposition to war, organizing for “economic justice,” frustration with “mainstream ideologies,” opposition to abortion, opposition to globalization, and ammunition stockpiling.

Now if you’re going to have internment camps on American soil, someone has to build them.

Thus, in 2006, it was announced that Kellogg Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, had been awarded a $385 million contract to build American detention facilities. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.”

Of course, these detention camps will have to be used for anyone viewed as a threat to the government, and that includes political dissidents.

So it’s no coincidence that the U.S. government has, since the 1980s, acquired and maintained, without warrant or court order, a database of names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation.

As Salon reports, this database, reportedly dubbed “Main Core,” is to be used by the Army and FEMA in times of national emergency or under martial law to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security. There are at least 8 million Americans in the Main Core database.

Fast forward to 2009, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released two reports, one on “Rightwing Extremism,” which broadly defines rightwing extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” and one on “Leftwing Extremism,” which labeled environmental and animal rights activist groups as extremists.

Incredibly, both reports use the words terrorist and extremist interchangeably.

That same year, the DHS launched Operation Vigilant Eagle, which calls for surveillance of military veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other far-flung places, characterizing them as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

These reports indicate that for the government, so-called extremism is not a partisan matter. Anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between—is a target, which brings us back, full circle, to the question of whether the government will exercise the power it claims to possess to detain anyone perceived as a threat, i.e., anyone critical of the government.

The short answer is: yes.

The longer answer is more complicated.

Despite what some may think, the Constitution is no magical incantation against government wrongdoing. Indeed, it’s only as effective as those who abide by it.

However, without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard it and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, it provides little to no protection against SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions, and the like.

Frankly, the courts and the police have meshed in their thinking to such an extent that anything goes when it’s done in the name of national security, crime fighting and terrorism.

Consequently, America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.

We seem to be coming full circle on many fronts.

Consider that two decades ago we were debating whether non-citizens—for example, so-called enemy combatants being held at Guantanamo Bay and Muslim-Americans rounded up in the wake of 9/11—were entitled to protections under the Constitution, specifically as they relate to indefinite detention. Americans weren’t overly concerned about the rights of non-citizens then, and now we’re the ones in the unenviable position of being targeted for indefinite detention by our own government.

Similarly, most Americans weren’t unduly concerned when the U.S. Supreme Court gave Arizona police officers the green light to stop, search and question anyone—ostensibly those fitting a particular racial profile—they suspect might be an illegal immigrant. A decade later, the cops largely have carte blanche authority to stop any individual, citizen and non-citizen alike, they suspect might be doing something illegal (mind you, in this age of overcriminalization, that could be anything from feeding the birds to growing exotic orchids).

Likewise, you still have a sizeable portion of the population today unconcerned about the government’s practice of spying on Americans, having been brainwashed into believing that if you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.

It will only be a matter of time before they learn the hard way that in a police state, it doesn’t matter who you are or how righteous you claim to be, because eventually, you will be lumped in with everyone else and everything you do will be “wrong” and suspect.

Indeed, it’s happening already, with police relying on surveillance software such as ShadowDragon to watch people’s social media and other website activity, whether or not they suspected of a crime, and potentially use it against them when the need arises.

It turns out that we are Soylent Green, being cannibalized by a government greedily looking to squeeze every last drop out of us.

The 1973 film Soylent Green, starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson, is set in 2022 in an overpopulated, polluted, starving New York City whose inhabitants depend on synthetic foods manufactured by the Soylent Corporation for survival.

Heston plays a policeman investigating a murder who discovers the grisly truth about the primary ingredient in the wafer, Soylent Green, which is the principal source of nourishment for a starved population. “It’s people. Soylent Green is made out of people,” declares Heston’s character. “They’re making our food out of people. Next thing they’ll be breeding us like cattle for food.”

Oh, how right he was.

Soylent Green is indeed people or, in our case, Soylent Green is our own personal data, repossessed, repackaged and used by corporations and the government to entrap us in prisons of our own making.

Without constitutional protections in place to guard against encroachments on our rights when power, technology and militaristic governance converge, it won’t be long before we find ourselves, much like Edward G. Robinson’s character in Soylent Green, looking back on the past with longing, back to an age where we could speak to whom we wanted, buy what we wanted, think what we wanted, and go where we wanted without those thoughts, words and movements being tracked, processed and stored by corporate giants such as Google, sold to government agencies such as the NSA and CIA, and used against us by militarized police with their army of futuristic technologies.

We’re not quite there yet, but as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, that moment of reckoning is getting closer by the minute.

What would Malcolm X and Dr. King Say About Covid-19 and Vaccines?

There’s been a number of times over the years when a current event at the time prompted me to ponder, ‘What would Malcolm X say about this? What would be his take? The same holds true with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What would they make of, say, the coronavirus or COVID-19 vaccines? Had they not been assassinated, would they have been out front encouraging black people to take the vaccines?  Or seen taking the jab in photo-up like fashion like Rev. Al Sharpton? Would Malcolm have been kind to all the black celebrities who were front and center encouraging blacks to get vaccinated? Would they have questioned the origin of these viruses? Surely they would have been all over the mysterious appearance of AIDS in Africa, and the 26 million Africans who died from AIDS after Hilary Koprowski’s polio vaccines. Surely Brother Malcolm’s keen perceptive, and analytical mind would have instinctively read foul play into all of the alphabet soup viruses.

But unfortunately we don’t have leaders and men of the caliber of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King anymore. And we don’t have leaders bold enough to challenge the power structure and the bogus prevailing narrative. Were Malcolm alive, he would put the spotlight on Francis Boyle and Boyle’s claim that coronavirus is the result of biological warfare. Dr. King surely would challenge the morality of a nation that would look the other way as unscrupulous scientists and mega pharmaceutical elites plotted ways to profit off human death, illness and misery. He certainly would have validated the allegations of Dr. David E. Martin. They would have stood up, strong. I heard a modern day griot say the other day that when we call upon our ancestors for support and guidance, we are not calling upon dead spirits but living ones; That we carry the spirit of Malcolm X, Dr. King, Harriett Tubman, the spirit off Patrice Lumumba and other freedom-fighting ancestors with us. They’re right there with us, wherever we go, whenever we’re in a tight spot and dealing with oppression and systemic racism. They’re with us. Let us be bold then, and challenge those that need to be challenged.

The Gig is Up! Powerful Revelations Point Toward Lab Origin of SARS CoV-2

More than 681,000 precious souls dead, 40 million people have tested positive for COVID-19, the US and world economy, businesses, families, in tatters, the entire world brought to a standstill. And now evidence has surfaced that points to the roots of this very devastating virus. The revelation and evidence? — COVID-19 was made in a laboratory. Not only made in a laboratory but made with the aid of American citizens, including Anthony Fauci himself. A cadre of international citizen investigators named DRASTIC, (Decentralized Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating COVID-19) broke the story through sheer tenacity and after combing through voluminous documents and being the beneficiary of whistleblower disclosures. Here’s what they’ve uncovered thus far.

Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance

“A leaked document shows that in 2018 the EcoHealth alliance had pitched DARPA to fund a huge amount of work on bat coronaviruses including mixing and matching the most dangerous elements of them (so-called chimeric virus assemblies) as well as identifying and inserting the best human furin cleavage sites in them to increase pathogenicity [infectiousness]. All of this work was to be done in collaboration with the Wuhan Institute of Virology up to and including paying a significant portion of “the bat lady’s” salary. DARPA declined to fund this work over obvious concerns.  No matter, this same work was funded by the NIH,which also, for unknown reasons, by-passed the usual institutional oversight governing such dangerous work.” [noted quotations taken from ]

So far, it’s been relative ‘crickets’ from mainstream media! But it’s time for the truth to come out about the origin of coronavirus. There’s enough credible information on the record to either confirm or debunk this. The names being bandied about? Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance, Ralph Baric, an expert in nanotechnology, and Shi Zhengli, “the Bat Lady.” And the biggest name of all, the man who has been a fixture at the NIH, NIAID through six presidents, Anthony Fauci.

What Took Alphabet Soup Viruses So Long to Emerge?

AIDS, Ebola, SARS, MERS, H1N1, SARS CoV-2. Every one of these mysterious viruses have emerged within just one lifetime. One lifetime! Experts assert that AIDS was caused by an African monkey. Ebola was caused by an African Fruit Bat. SARS-1 was caused by Asian Palm Civet. MERS was caused by a Dromedary Camel, and SARS CoV-2 was caused by a Chinese bat. Homo Sapiens — humans who look like us — evolved 130,000 years ago from our ancestors who had remained in Africa, we’re told. Bats, Civets, Camels and Monkeys, I’m sure, have been in existence and existing adjacent to and in harmony with human beings since time immemorial. Which prompts one to ponder — What took them so long to manifest? I’ve yet to hear experts explain why these “species jumps,” this recent scourge of viruses, took 129,930 years to emerge?

This Ain’t About

This ain’t about Democrats versus Republicans. This ain’t about Trump supporters versus Biden supporters. This ain’t about MSNBC, CNN and the so-called eastern liberal press versus Fox News, the Breibarts and so-called right-wing media. This ain’t about the vaccinated versus the unvaccinated. This ain’t about us versus them or them versus us. 

This is about the origin of COVID-19. This is about secret military laboratories experimenting with viruses and diseases known only to animals and weaponizing those pathogens, in violation of international law. This is about lack of public and governmental oversight. This is about a runaway train in the form of a highly secret geopolitical militarized industry made up of unchecked military budgets, grants, and big pharmaceutical behemoths that have a stranglehold on the very alphabet soup health overseers, organizations who are supposed to protect us. This is about “Gain of Function” so-called “research” being conducted under the guise and cover of “medical science” and “vaccine development”. Gain of Function being the how to’s of taking an animal virus and developing it, aerosoling it, weaponizing it, for God only knows who and what. 

This ain’t about me and you fighting over who’s responsible for the death and destruction that’s been created by COVID-19, or who’s been vaccinated or not vaccinated or pro-vaxxers or anti-vaxxers. This is about American universities like University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and others being in partnership with secret laboratories in military installations like Ft. Dietrick in Maryland and Wuhan in China, using thousands of scientists to research and weaponize viruses and pathogens that have never in the history of mankind affected man. Now, here they come — all within one lifetime: AIDS, Ebola, MERS, SARS, H1N1, and, the second version [enhanced version?] SARS CoV2. 

This ain’t about you and it ain’t about me. It ain’t about politics. It ain’t about Trump and it ain’t about Biden. It’s about a lapdog, co-opted and compromised press, neutered by government censorship, media-ownership-consolidation, and Big Pharma’s $9.6 billion annual advertising budget. It’s about our Fourth Estate (mass media) shirking its historic charter, role and responsibility of being the time-honored government watch-dog. Instead of looking out for our best interests, and protecting our freedoms, they’ve instead been the conveyors of fear, division,  and being mere public relations spokespeople and propagandists for Big Pharma. History will not be kind to them. They will stand indicted. Surely there are some who value ethics, integrity over career and personal gain. Or has Fear of losing everything captured them all? 

No, it ain’t about this prevailing false narrative being bandied about each and every day on mainstream media; this us versus them, this Republicans versus Democrats, Conservatives versus Liberals, this vaccinated versus unvaccinated. This is about diversion. This is about divide and conquer. This is about a cover-up of astronomical proportions. This is about government, corporate and media dereliction of duty. This is about the questionable practice of developing infectious diseases in military and university laboratories under the guise of medical science and vaccine development. It’s about safety or lack thereof. It’s about oversight or lack thereof. It’s about the future of our children, grandchildren and mankind itself.

As we grapple with the monumental sickness and death and destruction of our economy, may we all cease allowing ourselves to be manipulated and divided and pull together and begin to demand some answers. Stop the in-fighting and turn our anger and emotion toward the people and institutions who bear the blame for this catastrophe. Lastly, let’s not be put off by the oft-used dismissive “conspiracy theory” moniker. There’s enough evidence on the record to question so-called “Gain of Function” research, to legitimately ask our government if it’s really necessary to delve into areas of bio “research” God did not create man to do, for man is not God. And it’s past time to hold our government accountable. 

Asian Palm Civit, Source of SARS?

Dromedary Camel, Source of MERS?
African Fruit Bat, Source of Ebola?

If I Were to Die Tomorrow

If I were to die tomorrow, would people automatically think it was due to Covid? And if it was deemed to be due to Covid, what would people say? What would my family say who have admonished me to take one of the vaccines? What would friends of mine, people who’ve known me for decades say? Would they say ‘Fool, I told him, we told him, but he was too big headed, with all his ‘research’ and pontification. Now, the Negro dead.’ Would anyone say, “They killed him. Those evil bastards that created this virus, this lab monster, killed our brother”? Just as they have killed untold millions of people around the world.” Would one single soul say that? Probably not. You see, that’s the talk of “conspiracy theorists.” Everybody knows that. 

But, is there even a scintilla of truth to the assertion that COVID-19 was created in a lab? I firmly believe that it was. But as a lay person who ran from science when I was in school, what do I know? Yet, there are people who DO know. Dr. Francis Boyle knows. He spearheaded the Biological Weapons Act, passed by both houses of Congress. He came out in February of 2020 and boldly stated that coronavirus is an offensive Biological Warfare Weapon and that the World Health Organization (WHO) already knows it. And the CDC knows it, and Fauci and his NIAID and NIH and DARPA knows it. “They’re [CDC, WHO, NIAID] up to their eyeballs in it,” says Boyle who is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law.

Dr. David E Martin knows plenty. He has made some real eyebrow raising allegations against Tony Fauci, the CDC and the whole alphabet soup oversight public health bureaucracies. Martin’s research of 4,000 patents related to the coronavirus, with 73 of them that he says make up what we now know as the “novel” coronavirus. Martin says it was part of an elaborate plan to profit off vaccine development, a virus lab-engineered nanotechnology via Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Wuhan’s BSL-4 laboratory. All bankrolled by Anthony Fauci.

Ralph Baric (Megan May/UNC Research)

So, if I were to die from COVID-19, don’t be too hard on me for being cautious, even paranoid, about taking one of the initial vaccines. If even a fraction of what David E. Martin is saying is true; even if a fraction of what Francis Boyle is saying is accurate, somebody has blood on their hands and they need to answer for it. And yes, some of that blood could very well be mine!

“To sustain the funding base beyond the crisis, we need to increase public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures such as pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics will 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.” Peter Daszak, Source: National Academies Press (US), Feb. 12, 2016 [CLICK ON ALL LINKS]

Cookie Cutter Division Served Here!

I stopped watching MSNBC and CNN a couple of months ago and I rarely ever paid any attention to Fox News, whom I’ve been railing at for decades. Well it took me about five minutes today to rediscover why I will continue to ignore the noise from all of them! Caught just a snippet of MSNBC afternoon anchor Nicole Wallace whining about ”Republicans” and their cavalier “disease promotion and indifference to death.” Of course she was bemoaning those ’right-wingers’ for having the audacity to question vaccine mandates and the accepted holy grail vaccine orthodoxy that’s being stuffed down everybody’s throat. Mind you, all of this, as is standsrd for today’s ’us versus them’ paradigm, is presented in such a nice neat little cookie cutter package so that we can all know who the enemy is. Well, what about all of us who don’t fall within this profitable cable news revenue-producing matrix? I’m certainly not a right-winger. I am the antithesis of a Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, a Laura Ingraham. These folks have been pushing their race-tainted agenda for years, most recently manifested in the Critical Race Theory tempest in a teapot.

MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace

But one thing I’m compelled to do is to give Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson credit for is his questioning of the origins of COVID, his questioning of the current vaccines and the vaccine protocol. Yea, I said that! None of anchors on CNN or MSNBC are questioning anything Fauci and the Alphabet Soup agencies are positing. They’re rubber stamps, simply parroting the official line. Don Lemon wants to deny the unvaccinated entry into a grocery store! “Why are they believing Donald Trump, who lies more than he tells the truth on any given day of the week?” says Lemon. You see, that’s been the biggest problem with cable news coverage of COVID since day one. It’s been politicized and framed in the usual us versus them context. Nevermind that not everyone fits neatly into their cookie cutter paradigm. Tucker Carlson may be taking this vaccine sceptic narrative just to be contrary to his competition but at least someone is at least trying to appear as keeping the vaccine Thought Police honest. Which is more than can be said for CNN, MSNBC, 60 Minutes and the like.
