When Will This Inane Irrationality Concerning COVID-19 End?

by | Mar 22, 2021 | Health & Healing

In March 2020, the rallying cry “flattening the curve” was launched by a political consultant who helped coordinate the public health strategy to slow down the spread of COVID-19, the then-named pandemic. Although any curve when flattened just turns into something long[er] in duration, the concept became popular promptly.

Blue state governors and mayors across America in particular were eager to jump on the bandwagon, in the process inflicting catastrophic damage to small businesses and to the economy in general.

Regarding the resulting trillions of dollars in additional debt, we call to mind what Nobel Laureate in economics Milton Friedman (1913-2006) called the first principle in such matters, namely that government does not have any money, only people have money. The government solely gets its funds by pocketing its citizens’ money.

As a consequence of the government’s fiscal and moral misappropriation over the last 30-plus years, America’s national debt is now larger than its national economy. Which begs the question, “Who is going to pay off the $27 trillion debt?”

Without a shadow of a doubt, that’ll be or become the burden of responsibility of our children and grandchildren. It will be a school of hard knocks for them, because this is the kind of school where the test comes first and the lesson to be learned afterward. Passing one’s debt down the descending line of offspring, as the last two generations have done, is a shameful act of moral turpitude.

Three times before has the U.S. come close to default: in 1790, 1933 and 1979.

It wasn’t COVID-19 that bankrupted American businesses or put 40 million Americans out of work. Big government bureaucrats and politicians did that, through the use [or abuse] of unwarranted edicts, executive orders and mismanagement. Some 65% of American businesses will never recover.

The term “pandemic” derives from the Greek words pan, all, and demos, people, meaning literally that it affects all people alike (i.e. there is universal infectability among all age groups). The current application of the term doesn’t follow the original meaning, however, which becomes abundantly clear in the case of COVID-19.

The infectability is quite different for the various age groups, and all but universal. Those between the ages of 20 and 40 were as likely to succumb to the virus as from playing football. For those between the ages of 15 and 24 falling down the stairs had a higher mortality rate than COVID-19. And for youngsters under the age of 15, the chances of getting hit by lightning were greater than of death by COVID-19. Regarding the chances of healthy women under the age of 40, they suffered about the same odds of dying from a plane crash as from the virus.

The 16-month feverishly frenzied coronavirus campaign appears to have been driven by Big Pharma’s social media operation, which we might brand “panic for profit.” They were aided and abetted by un-American censorship through Big Tech’s Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and a sectarian mainstream media manipulating the public to such an extent that if people were instructed to get into boxcars to be taken to the nearest “Virus Protection Camp,” many Americans would rush headlong to get in line.

Never in American history has the healthy rather than the infirm and immunologically challenged been quarantined from a virus that has an overall recovery rate between 97% and 99.75% among the different age groups.

This brings us, once again, to Dr. Anthony Fauci, “America’s Most Trusted Man,” according to CNN, who last December admitted to lying about the COVID-19 herd immunity threshold, in order to manipulate public support for the vaccine.

Here is where it gets a little murky; Newsweek reported on March 13 that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had been banned from Facebook and Instagram for spreading “dangerous information” by articulating his skepticism over the COVID-19 vaccine. As an environmental lawyer, Kennedy called Fauci “an abject failure” as the director of the National Institutes of Health, who profited personally by promoting vaccines.

On The Rush Limbaugh Show, Kennedy went even further by leveling the explosive charge that “Anthony Fauci put $500 million of our dollars into that vaccine. He owns half the patent. He has five guys who are working for him who are entitled to collect royalties from that. So you have a corrupt system and now they’ve got a vaccine and it’s too big to fail.”

Nowhere to be seen in this case are the self-styled investigative reporters who claim it as their duty to safeguard and sustain freedom by digging deep into accusations of political corruption and of Big Pharma’s “panic for profit” intrigue. Are we to believe in a conflict of interest with Big Pharma placing ads in political journals and social media companies to heighten panic and sell more vaccines?

During the questioning of Fauci at a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing last week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused the government and health care officials of theatrical enactment, labeling Fauci’s never-ceasing avocation for two masks—even for those who had the coronavirus or had been vaccinated, and thus are immune—all “show.”

Here are Paul’s exact words: “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. … You can’t get it again; there’s almost zero percent chance you’re going to get it. … And you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity—you’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated. … You want to get rid of vaccine hesitancy? Tell people to quit wearing their masks after they get the vaccine.”

Fauci tried a wisecrack by saying, “Here we go again with the theater. … Let me just state for the record that masks are not theater, masks are protective.”

To which Paul responded with: “If you have immunity they’re theater. If you already have immunity, you’re wearing a mask to give comfort to others.”

Lamentably, the Biden administration just announced a $1.3 billion taxpayer-funded advertising campaign to persuade the “vaccine-hesitant” to accept the free product (the vaccine) already purchased and paid for by the American taxpayer.

When will this inane irrationality end? We might look into the deception of the Gibeonites, portrayed in the book of Joshua, as to the spiritual consequences of surrendering the spiritual, intellectual, educational, economical and vocational levers of power and influence to those in rebellion against God.

A distinct hint comes from the ploy of declaring churches “non-essential” while simultaneously classifying liquor stores, marijuana distribution centers and abortion clinics as “essential.”
