Surge Summary: Many uncomfortable facts have surfaced regarding COVID-19 – and many things are still unclear or unknown. Through it all, many politicians are trying to take advantage of the situation for their own purposes – some of them not good for liberty.

An invitation to people who’ve been COVID vaccinated: stop for a moment and consider the reasons people decline vaccination.

First, let’s all agree and remember that this virus kills less than 1% of people who get infected. Why then the big fatality numbers? If we accept official reports, that about 700,000 Americans have died, the reason the virus kills so many people is it is very good at replicating and mutating. It spreads quickly and is most lethal to the elderly and those with preconditions. Even in the face of the delta variant, the vast majority survive. These appear reliable facts even if government statistics are manipulated.

Secondly, after about a year of experience with vaccines, we still face a steep learning curve. However, we know that vaccines only work for a while, that they provide partial immunity, that those vaccinated can and do spread virus, that boosters may cause more harm than good, and that the vaccinated actually spawn variants.

So, based on what we know, both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated spread disease, 7.69 billion doses have been administered (Bloomberg 11.21.21), yet death rates do not appear to be slowing, neither are infection rates dropping. Vermont has the highest vaccination rate in the country yet infection rates soar. Same story holds in Israel.

We do know that people who survive infection are left with strong immunity. By some reports, natural immunity is 20x stronger than what vaccines provide. If herd immunity is so favorable, why is it rarely discussed or pursued and why is the inferior approach promoted?

A large and growing number of credible medical professionals—physicians and nurses—express real concerns about vaccine side effects including long term disabilities, lifelong injuries, cancer, heart problems, infertility and even death.

Let’s remember that for all intents and purposes, we are still injecting people with experimental substances; which means they’ve not been tested thoroughly. Even so, we have trusted Big Pharma, Big Government and Big Media. Do they deserve our trust?

One key reality should be highlighted: alternatives to vaccines are inexpensive, and according to many experts, these treatments are highly effective (HCQ, Ivermectin.) Vaccines present questionable effectiveness and durability, and they are more costly.

Taking all these points of interest into consideration, it should be clear to most people that the profit motive is very influential in the halls of power, the unvaccinated present no added danger to others, the vaccinated can actually contribute to variant production and infection rates, and we are being denied alternative treatments for no good reason.

Most troubling, we have a federal government dominated by a President and Dr. Fauci hell bent on destroying the doctor/patient relationship, depriving people of self-determination (even if it means acting illegally) and subordinating science to political agendas.

Both Fauci and Biden speculate this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Not true. The science does not support that conclusion. Think about it. The majority have been vaccinated, here and throughout the West, yet infection rates increase. How is that the fault of the unvaccinated, when we know both groups leak virus? No one can tell you if a virus came from one or the other group, so how can you blame anyone? No one can tell you one groups leaks more than the other.

Apparently Biden and Fauci and the rest of the pro jab crowd are trying to take over the entire medical system to the point of enslaving patients and doctors. They use fear and intimidation to force vaccination, and to pit groups against one another.

And when the Chinese connections are factored in, the threats to our way of life multiply and compound.

Late breaking news: so much for the effectiveness of vaccines.


The number of U.S. Covid-19 deaths recorded in 2021 has surpassed the toll in 2020, according to federal data and Johns Hopkins University, demonstrating the virus’s persistent menace. The total number of reported deaths linked to the disease topped 770,800 on Saturday, Johns Hopkins data show. This puts the pandemic-long total at more than twice the 385,343 Covid-19 deaths recorded last year . . . 

Let’s be realistic: this pandemic is not the fault of the unvaccinated, and it is not the fault of the vaccinated. It is the fault of the Chinese and certain Americans in power, people who play games with our lives in their pursuit of power through domination.
