Fear and the Loss of Liberty

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste ….. And what I mean by that is, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

2008 speech to WSJ forum on the global financial crisis Rahm Emmanuel, White House Chief of Staff under Barack Obama

2020 was the year fear defeated liberty. We wanted to believe this would not happen, that two weeks would “stop the spread”. We wanted to be good citizens and follow the laws, mandates and restrictions that we did not always support or agree with.

Yet, Americans have traditionally risen to the occasion to help a neighbor or save the world from totalitarianism. Ironically, the Democrats have used covid as a Trojan horse to enact a leftist agenda . For a recap and analysis of 2020, those of you new to the site may appreciate our history of what may may well be the worst year in U.S. History. We are expanding our historical analysis to include a podcast option. In case you missed this 6 part series, here it is in audio format. If viewing in email, opening in blue link at the top of post should display all features.

Fear motivates like no other force. Fear of new variants, another uptick in cases is spread by health officials still, even as mass vaccinations have limited the death toll in recent months. Restrictions have been lifted in some states, yet most states still restrict their citizens’ opportunities and freedoms.

March 13th will mark one year since President Trump declared a national emergency and March 19th will mark the date of the first statewide stay-at-home order in California. 42 other states would follow suit except for Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. (ballotpedia.org) President Trump failed to secure re-election and Gov. Newsom in California and Gov. Cuomo in New York are in precarious positions of power as both may lose their office. Media outlets created the narrative that Trump was not responding to the virus and that Governors Cuomo and Newsom were heroic leaders who used strict controls on their residents to vanquish the epidemic. Ultimately, the misinformation, bias and professional dereliction of duty of the mainstream media is linked to the fates of these three executives.

One year later, FEAR is still used to keep schools and businesses from fully reopening and FEAR is used to keep the narrative of an emergency in effect. Are we really living through an emergency when Disneyworld is reopened and according to CNN, is fully booked next week? Airplanes fly with packed cabins with passengers less than 6 feet apart yet students are often learning at homes. Pearl Harbor was the beginning of an emergency as was 9/11 and the Civil War. The medical data has yielded agreement that the death rate is low and the vulnerable are easily identified and isolated.

Ironically, President Biden is set to sign the overwhelmingly partisan American Rescue Plan Act. The Senate passed the bill on strict partisan lines 50-49 while the House passed the same 220 to 211 with all Republicans against as well as one Democrat, Jared Golden (ME). The bill will be signed by the President two days later on Friday, during which time an estimated 3,000 more Americans will have died from this emergency. If the need was so great, why not sign Wednesday evening so the bill can rescue America as soon as possible and save 3,000 more lives?

Worth noting was the bloated, but likely necessary, Cares Act that passed the Senate on March 25, 2020. The $2 trillion bill sailed through the Senate in a unanimous 96–0 vote before heading to the House for a near-unanimous voice vote and then President Trump’s signature. Bipartisanship was possible during the early part of the crisis.

Clearly, the goal is not to save lives but to perpetuate the biggest hoax in U.S. History after the U.S.S. Maine incident, paving the way for the Spanish-American War. To be clear, I do not believe the virus is fake, not deadly or not worthy of mitigation. However, the epidemic, turned pandemic was and is, used to bankrupt America, stifle civil liberties and create greater dependency upon the federal government. The unfunded expenditures in the bill will be based squarely on deficit spending, quantitative easing and increasing the national debt.

The promoted fear surrounding covid obviously changed the outcome of the presidential election and allowed the Senate to fall to the Democrats. Additional radical spending plans are already planned on:

-gun control -voting ‘reform’ -infrastructure -green technology -more stimulus aid (welfare disguised as covid relief) -“equality” of sexual orientation
