Lost Horizons

“Any basis– even an enactment of the legislature itself– on which the governor (or any executive branch agency or official) claims the power to devise, issue and enforce commands directed at any or all of the general public — whether such commands are labeled as “Executive Orders” or otherwise– is manifestly unconstitutional and void, per the foregoing simple and straightforward legal facts. The governor and all other executive branch officials are prohibited from being given, having, or exercising any such power.

No commands so devised and issued can be lawfully enforced by anyone. No commands so devised and issued can be lawfully upheld by any court to which the foregoing points of law are presented.”

THOSE BEHIND THE EFFORT TO IMPOSE A “NEW NORMAL” in which your liberties are dramatically circumscribed on behalf of a purported collective security interest (i.e., “You must submit to this and this in order to spare others the inconvenience of isolation from a hob-goblin threat about which they have been made panicky by a 24/7 propaganda attack over the last 8 months) are going to persist until they are stopped by opposing forces.

You must understand that by mid-April, at least, these officials had, through outright incompetence or irresistible lust for power, ruined state economies and the personal economies of vast numbers of their neighbors, and in many cases contributed hugely to the outright deaths of thousands of people. And they had done all these terrible things in the name of a vastly overblown threat of plague-like peril from what was really at most just another seasonal flu in its outcomes– and an especially mild seasonal flu, at that. (See this documented summary of the “crisis” for evidence of the fact assertions above, and those that will be found below which are not equipped with other links.)

The only way these culpable officials can see themselves escaping punishment for these horrific crimes is through nurturing the pretense that C19 really is the dire “millions will die” threat that they have been pitching (and keeping alive the panic that this pretense has engendered in the gullible). If they can do this long enough, the actual record of events will become thoroughly polluted with their narrative falsehoods and faded from the passage of time, as well.

During this holdout, double-down period, constituencies will arise on behalf of the new normal. At the same time, those at whose expense this all happens become weaker and less able to seek redress of the grievances, much less to hold those responsible accountable for their misdeeds.

IT IS ON BEHALF OF THIS “preserve the rationale and the panic” effort that we have seen the sustained (and otherwise completely inexplicable) attacks on hydroxychloroquine (which have risen to the point of administering fatal overdoses and withholding the treatment from patients until past the point at which it would be effective in alleged impartial clinical “trials”, as well as reporting fake studies and making outlandish and false claims about HCQ side effects).

It is also on behalf of the “preserve the rationale and the panic” effort that we have seen the manifestly absurd focus on “case” counts (on behalf of which “positives” have been recorded even for people never actually tested and the CDC– and a number of states– have been combining test results showing active infections with those showing antibodies, and treating the total as the “active case” count). High “case counts”– whether honestly discovered or fabricated– mean nothing unless accompanied by high fatalities (or high rates of illness so critical as to require hospitalization to prevent death). Neither has ever happened.

Even with a huge number of infections in America at the beginning of the year (estimated to be between 36 and 51 million), almost no fatalities occurred until infected patients were seeded into highly-vulnerable nursing home populations.

The dramatic spate of murdered grandmas and grandpas thus produced ramped the fatality rate up to a somewhat scary several hundred a week, but was insufficient for the panic-mongering officials, who were already recognizing their problem and the only light at the end of their self-made tunnel. Hence, the actual (however much contrived) C19 death counts were then “fortified” by an unprecedented change in the decades-old reporting protocols.

Under the new guidelines, every dead American which a heavily-predisposed medical community could imagine might have presented any symptom nominally associated with C19 (which happen to also be symptoms associated with several other illnesses, such as the standard flu, pneumonia, and even just the common cold) began to be counted as a death from C19. NOW we started seeing some frightening numbers! They weren’t actual C19 fatalities, but they were said to be, and did a great job at keeping the panic roiling. More
