Well, where I live in the Roaring Fork Valley – it is looking like maybe the spread is still happening, but, thank God, the number of deaths is extremely low. This morning I checked (and noticed that the New York Times is focusing now on CASES instead of DEATHS (which would obviously be more concerning because it is a higher number). Fear is a great mechanism to control.
TODAY OUR STATS:
Pitkin County: 195 Cases/2 Deaths
Eagle County: 1168 Cases/9 Deaths
Garfield County: 825 Cases/4 Deaths
NOW MIND YOU – July 12th, this is what the stats were:
Pitkin County: 130 Cases/2 Deaths
Eagle County: 761 Cases/ 8 Deaths
Garfield County: 403 Cases/ 3 Deaths
That means in 47 days, in the 2 main counties where I live/work (Pitkin/Eagle) that there has been NO INCREASE in deaths in one and ONE additional death in the other.
Is it the masks working, considering it wasn’t until March that the “laws” were enacted (reminder: laws are passed by elected officials NOT ‘mandated’ by government officials or bureaucrats – so these were not mask LAWS, they were mask RULES)? The CCP virus was arguably spreading in our country even in December… that is 3 months before the mask rules were implemented.
Is our social distancing working? Probably…
Is the virus becoming weaker? I hope so…
Are we achieving “herd immunity”? I bet if we tested EVERYBODY for antibodies that we would have a big surprise.
Are the tests actually working and showing the sickness and spread? Are there false positives? False negatives? Contaminated tests? Do the tests reveal what is actually going on? Oh, and WHY ON EARTH would we use and trust testing kits from China when the Chinese Communist Party has made it clear their intentions to harm the United States?
The real truth is that no one really knows for sure. One thing that seems apparent is that the mortality rate is decreasing, and that is good news. But I don’t think we really know what is going on and that leaves a big vacuum for the people and forces that seek to use fear to control and manipulate.
So how much longer do we “stop the spread”? Well, the real answer is INDEFINITELY. Because you cannot stop the spread of a virus. Period. The only way to increase health and immunity is to build peoples’ immune systems. Period. Oh, and we can do that without a man-made, potentially genetically-modified, artificial vaccine… but no one is talking about that right now.
Day 165 – How Much Longer Does Stopping the Spread Last? August 27th, 2020Rebellion!
If there has ever been a time to question the motive or competence of our bureaucratic ‘leaders’ – now is the time.
In an interview with ABC News, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the “best” way to protect oneself is to cover your eyes in addition to nose and mouth.
From the New York Post: “When asked if eye protection will become a formal recommendation at some point, he said, “It might, if you really want perfect protection of the mucosal surfaces.””
PERFECT PROTECTION? HELL YEAH OF COURSE THAT IS WHAT I WANT! Because we all know we can protect ourselves COMPLETELY from exposure to this virus… right?
If face masks are that effective, remembering that the initial recommendation from Dr. Fauci and the Surgeon General were to NOT wear face masks, why didn’t anyone mention your eyeballs being ‘mucosal surfaces’ that are just as likely to contract disease?
This is really serious – this means that for over 100 days now Americans have been wandering around EXPOSED without “PERFECT PROTECTION”. Shouldn’t someone be called out for this?
Now, personally, I think most all of us have likely already been exposed to this virus, and it won’t make one bit of difference, but for the fear-mongers, this is real reason for outrage. And NOW for the goggle palooza.. soon goggles with your company’s name imprinted on them! While we are at it, let’s make sure they have blinders to stop you from looking around and that the masks/muzzles have a device to stop you from talking, oh wait, they already do!
Day 140 – NOW We Are Told To Wear Goggles to Best Protect Ourselves From COVID?!?!?! July 30th, 2020Rebellion!
Day 122 into the Coronavirus Pandemic… and I have some questions.
Being in the tri-county area of Pitkin, Eagle, and Garfield – we are under mandatory mask ‘orders’ (not law – simply ordinances – although you would be hard-pressed to find people that know the difference) – and continually told how important it is to wear them. You are certainly shamed if you don’t.
Infection and Death Rates for these counties as of today are as follows:
Pitkin County: 130 Cases/2 Deaths (1 in 137 people for Cases)
Eagle County: 761 Cases/ 8 Deaths (1 in 72 people for Cases)
Garfield County: 403 Cases/ 3 Deaths (1 in 149 for Cases)
In these counties, we are following the path of those who believe that wearing masks ‘saves lives’. I certainly wear one when in public spaces where I can’t stand 6 feet away from people – I do this to make OTHER people feel ‘safe’. I certainly don’t feel any safer or better most of the time, because I hate breathing my own recycled and dirty air.
But there is an oddity in Mesa County, where I believe there are NO KNOWN mask ordinances, and where you can still move about and purchase groceries without masks… in Mesa County there are:
140 Cases and 0 Deaths – that is 1 in 1,102 for Cases
That is significantly less people with the virus. Why is this?
Is there really evidence that the mask-wearing will stop or even slow the spread of this thing? I get the concept, and am happy to “do my part” – but why is it that the County where there aren’t these draconian mandates and mask-police actually have less cases and deaths?
Maybe we should ask some questions about what we should do if we REALLY CARE about ‘saving lives’ of our fellow human beings? Since the virus and all viruses and all bacteria will be around on Earth forever. Maybe there are some other ways we can help and support each other without screaming at each other for wearing this piece of cloth over one’s face?
From Dr. Kelly Brogan, “That’s also why those who are shaming maskless civilians don’t exactly appear to be concerned for the well-being of those they are shaming, nor even concerned for their own health necessarily, but rather, are pouring from quite empty cups to garner a little hit of power. “
So, here’s a thought… what if wearing masks actually makes healthy people sick? What if this is a power-grab? What if this is dehumanizing us? What if this is all fear-driven?
“Mandatory Masks Can Cause Considerable Harm and Are Not Proven Effective“
“Evidence that face masks reduce the transmission of viral respiratory infections within community settings is equivocal at best. A recent meta-analysis of scientific literature, including 11 randomized, controlled trials and 10 observational studies, found that there was no clear clinical or laboratory-confirmed evidence that masks prevent infection. To the contrary, the study warned that facemasks “…may even increase transmission if they act as fomites [objects or materials that are likely to carry infection] or prompt other behaviours that transmit the virus such as face touching.”
This echoes World Health Organization (WHO) guidance published on January 29, 2020 entitled, “Advice on the use of masks in the community, during home care and in healthcare settings in the context of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak.” In it, the WHO says, “Wearing medical masks when not indicated may cause unnecessary cost, procurement burden and create a false sense of security that can lead to neglecting other essential measures such as hand hygiene practices.” Furthermore, the January 2020 WHO guidance stated that “Cloth (e.g., cotton or gauze) masks are not recommended under any circumstance.”
Cloth masks have been found to be particularly problematic. A British Medical Journal (BMJ) study published in April 2020 cautions against the use of cloth masks, citing “Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection.” The WHO affirms increased infection risk with cloth masks in its latest June 5, 2020 guidance. It based its guidance on an earlier BMJ study that found the penetration of particles to be 97% in the cloth mask group, with significantly higher rates of infection and influenza-like illness.
A study on the CDC website that reviewed 10 different randomized clinical trials worldwide on highly infectious respiratory virus transmission found “no significant reduction” in “transmission with the use of face masks.”
Given the lack of evidence for their use, and flip-flopping advice both against and for their use by authoritative health agencies like the WHO, the increasing pressure to wear masks in public — and the decreased ability to access basic services required to maintain one’s health, liberty and livelihood — constitutes an unnecessary power grab and means of controlling the population.”
Evidence. Science. Discussion. Can we work on having any of these things please? This is our last chance to save any liberty we have, this is our last chance to truly be human, this is our last chance to TRULY STAND UP FOR EACH OTHER. Not by being aggressive and pointing fingers for mask-wearing, we need to stand up for each other’s right to HEALTH, which starts with peace of mind, love, and access to natural foods and wellness products that BUILD OUR INNATE IMMUNE SYSTEMS.
No Mask Enforcement – No Deaths… A Case for Liberty? July 12th, 2020Rebellion!
Proclaim your Independence by hovering inside with your mask on, while on your knees apologizing for crimes you have not committed!
Received this alert this morning that cases are “on the rise” in Pitkin County (ooohhhh scary!!!!) so what does this mean?
A week ago on June 26th, Pitkin County had 91 cases and 2 deaths (this has been since March – this is 114 days in, the TOTAL) and on July 4th that is now… 104 cases and 2 deaths. HOLY $H!TBALLS – that is an increase of 13 people! STAY INSIDE!
Aspen has a “local” population of about 7,300 – so if you count that.. that is approximately .014 of the population that is infected and if you count deaths, that is .00027 of the population (more people I think have died on Highway 82 recently). If you count visitors, which is AT LEAST double the population – so a total of 14,600… then our stats are .00071 people INFECTED BY THIS UNRELENTING HORRID HORRID VIRUS and .00013 people DEAD (one of the two people who have died ‘from’ Coronavirus was 93 years old).
We will continue to monitor this breaking situation!!!!!
Day 114 – Corona Cases on the RISE in Pitkin County July 5th, 2020Rebellion!
Mob rule is a dangerous thing, and in our country we are seeing its effects daily.
A mob has no individual voices, only a conglomerate acting as one. Mobs generally don’t have ‘discussions’ or take time to ask questions or reflect – a mob has a mission, usually one of destruction.
A mob acts through violence and coercion for its end goal – it has grievances, and those grievances usually must be met with bloodshed. Hysteria rules, and those who give in to the hysteria, although temporarily placating the one voice of the mob, will eventually see the mob’s rage.
You cannot please people who are out for blood, with seething rage, and absolutely no knowledge of history, no desire to learn, no room for debate, no way to solve the problem without destruction and violence. You cannot solve these people’s problems. Their desire is one of annihilation. Victor Davis Hanson said something to the effect ‘..ignorance and arrogance are a dangerous combination’. So true.
Mark Zuckerburg and Facebook are facing criticism from people who want to stop ‘hate speech’ on his online platform. It is a private company, so one really can’t get overly upset about ANYTHING (sans the fact that they are ‘protected’ by our worthless ‘leaders’ in Congress), but because of its reach into so many people’s lives, it is interesting to at least discuss. What is ‘hate speech’? Who decides what hate speech is? Right now the hate is supposedly from people who are racist – but who decides who that is? It’s a never-ending circle of argument… I am banned from Facebook, I don’t even know why – but who made that decision to log me out and not allow me back on? I never posted anything political as of the past several years, and just wanted to advertise some pastries. Oh, and I own a company in the cannabis space… maybe that is racist?
The most awesome thing about this hatred and violence though, is that the mob starts to eat its own. Facebook is arguably very biased against conservatives (the same with Twitter, Instagram, etc.) – I think this is provable. But because this platform isn’t doing “enough” to stop the racism (by shutting people up on their online platform) – liberal people and companies aren’t advertising in a show of solidarity with the mob. It is fascinating because these people who have stopped advertising are attempting to ‘harm’ the very platform that got them to the position that they are in with their advertising dollars! I love it! They are eating their own…. good job mob!
Call it karma, but I do believe in goodness and by avoiding this altogether one will see that eventually this mob will turn on the people who are fueling it. And I can’t wait.
BEWARE: The Mob Will Come For You, Too June 29th, 2020Rebellion!
So apparently there is a record number in reported COVID-19 cases as of yesterday (in one day – 40,000 total) … and also it appears that many, many people, possibly MILLIONS have already had the virus without even knowing it. Does this make it worse… or better? If we have already had that kind of exposure, without even KNOWING IT, does that mean that we are building herd immunity and that the rate of hospitalizations and deaths are even lower? No, probably not, I think it is time for more hysteria!
So, as of today, the 106th day since I have been writing in my online journal about this insanity, here are our numbers:
MESA COUNTY – 87 Cases/0 Deaths (this county does NOT have mask requirement, interesting…)
I want to emphasize that EVERY LIFE MATTERS and that JUST ONE PERSON DYING from this terrible terrible virus is TOO MANY. ONE IS TOO MANY – and it is horrifying how many people are dying.
And since every precious life matters, I think we should treat all death equally and just remember the following from 2019 (from the CDC):
Heart disease: 647,457
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173
This is how many people DIED LAST YEAR. EVERY PRECIOUS LIFE. Because COVID-19 has brought to light how important it is to pay attention to viruses and underlying conditions that affect your IMMUNE SYSTEM, let’s look at what is killing people every day (and has been for decades).
Heart disease LAST YEAR killed well over half a million people. Where is the outrage? Cancer LAST YEAR killed over half a million people. Where is the outrage? Oh, by the way, these underlying conditions make it EASIER for the virus to infect AND kill you… why aren’t our “leaders” talking about this? Don’t they want to “save us”? This would be a great place to START – a healthier society can combat ANY virus better.
I understand that this is a very scary virus – I personally am horrified about the way it may mutate and how it may affect people forever after they are infected. But, since it may be impossible to find an EFFECTIVE vaccine (trust me, they will be ready to shoot SOMETHING into you lickity-split), maybe our society should talk about HEALTH.
I know, alarm bells are going off in your head… what the f$@* do you mean HEALTH? Why don’t we focus on treated the DISEASE? Pills, prescriptions, therapies, vaccines – that’s how you create health, right?
No, health starts with immunity, and although no one in any leadership position that I can see will talk about it – I will. Others do and need platforms to reach people who want to learn about true, innate immunity – given to us by our Creator, Mother Nature, GAIA, Earth, etc.
So let’s get mad – look at how many people died last year and are dying this year because of EVERYTHING…. and let’s actually do something to FIX IT.
Day 106 – Reason for Hysteria? COVID Cases & Numbers June 26th, 2020Rebellion!
The amount of rage erupting around the country is startling – all of that anger and hate have to be directed SOMEWHERE, right?
It is heat in the body – this uncomfortable and unsettling heat that is burning in so many people’s hearts. Part from a sick body, part from problems in the mind, part from detachment of meaning/spirits/God/Universe – whatever – a detachment from the greater, the infinite, peace, the Divine. Part from righteous anger and indignation, I know because I feel this too.
So concerning to me are the removal of historic statues. With people standing and screaming like it is some type of great victory to ‘throw out’ this physical structure. First, this does nothing other than make you feel good for destroying something (been there). Second – erasing the bad history that you don’t like is probably the worst thing you can do for your cause. Because without history, we don’t have a roadmap for where we have already been. We don’t have a beat on what already happened. When you ‘erase’ history, you merely lose sight, you don’t do ANYTHING to create a positive change for the future.
It is dangerous to forget and remove history. History teaches us about what we have done as people – good and BAD – and this is how we learn about what was tried and what failed, and that is so important to creating a better world. Even if you don’t like something that happened – that doesn’t mean you just get to “erase it” – it HAPPENED. OWN IT. CHANGE IT. REMEMBER IT. DON’T JUST PRETEND LIKE IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED!
Forgetting where you came from, even if it sucks, is a bad idea in any circumstance, but especially in economic and political history – as these are the areas that rule your life.
Banning the Confederate flag, desecrating and destroying Confederate monuments – makes you feel good, right? Well, what happens in 40 years when a young person sees this flag and asks what it is and there is no information on it anymore? No lesson about what it stood for – no remembrance of what it meant to people? If we KNOW about history, we are able to explain it and work from it. If we DO NOT KNOW HISTORY we are more likely to repeat the mistakes of our past and not create as vibrantly because we repeat ourselves.
I mean, we think we are pretty f-ing smart, but to be honest, I think we are actually devolving. Not long ago people believed in their immune systems, ate nutrient-dense foods, and didn’t even know what a vaccine was. Now we are all sick from the very food we put in our bodies, we look for drugs to mask our pain, and certain people in high places plan for us to take an untested vaccine (HOW CAN YOU REALLY KNOW A VACCINE IS SAFE UNLESS YOU STUDY EFFECTS FOR SEVERAL YEARS?!?!?!) for a virus that evolves and changes and that we don’t even really understand yet.
Deleting History Doesn’t Change It June 14th, 2020Rebellion!
June 2nd continued to prove the sad reality we face – when it comes to real issues and people thinking that they are participating but actually hurting the message.
“Black Out Tuesday” was supposed to be a stand of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. So what did people do? They posted on their Instagram feed a black square.
I don’t want to be a jerk, but not only does this not do anything to show solidarity or actually show people’s pain, struggle, or work on some type of actual SOLUTION – but it also completely blacked out and drowned out any other messaging that you may be searching for. When you searched the hashtag #BLM or #blacklivesmatter – all you got was a bunch of empty, black screens. This shows NOTHING. Literally nothing.
It is easy to do. Look, I am doing it now. I am sitting here behind this screen bitching about something. I feel like I am participating. I feel like I am “acting” – but this is nothing but being a keyboard warrior. Screaming with text or a picture but actually DOING NOTHING.
What can we do? Surely more than this.
Nice Job Blacking Out The Real Message – Keyboard Warriors June 4th, 2020Rebellion!
It is our constitutional right to not agree with everything that the government tells us.
It is our natural God-given right to choose what we do with our bodies.
It is our duty to stand up for discussion, truth, and freedom. It is our duty to seek the truth and listen to people and stand up for ALL VOICES – EVEN IF WE DISAGREE WITH THEM.
This interview with Dr. Judy Michowitz on Armstrong Economics seems pretty legit and is very interesting. Especially when it comes to her knowledge and research into coronaviruses and influenza/flu vaccines that may actually contribute to people getting sicker.
All I seek is the truth – and I don’t want to hurt or kill anybody while doing it. I think that the people ‘running the circus’ at the federal government and big pharma probably do not have these scruples. Not all of them – but enough to have created a real disaster.
I pray for justice and protection of those bearing light and speaking truth. I hope that you will be inspired to do the same. We are each other’s protection. I hope you will watch and share this and research for yourself.
Day 59 – Dr. Judy Mikovits Interview on Armstrong Economics May 10th, 2020Rebellion!
Well, it looks like everyone is now potentially an asymptomatic carrier of disease – so everyone must obey. Cover your f-ing face.
I kind of get it. Except that I am pretty sure this is our new reality. Which really sucks. This will be good for the people who don’t want to show their face though. I am contemplating my new outfits for fun fun grocery shopping so that I can comply effectively while rebelling.
Personally, and I don’t know $h!t, I think that keeping a face mask on for hours and hours at a time is going to be HORRIBLE for people’s health. By keeping a covering over your nose and mouth, you are effectively creating moisture and heat, which of course, is a great breeding ground for bacteria. I mean, not to sound like a complete and total crazy person, but our noses actually have ‘filters’ to help us live in a world with bacteria and viruses…which we have done for thousands of years up to this point.
Wow, I must sound like a witch. Burn her at the stake!
I wish we could have some discussion about facts – I wish we could investigate possibilities for continuing on both socially and economically. I wish we could have discussion about building immune systems and creating nutrient-dense food that would help us fuel better – so that we could feel better. But it is hard to have conversations with your mouth covered and your eyes closed. : (
