Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power

Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.

The old saying goes that even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally.  So you might think that during a 50-year political career, the odds would dictate that Joe Biden would, once in a blue moon, make a correct decision — just based on the odds.  But you’d be mistaken.  Biden has stumbled and bumbled from one disastrous decision to the next.  Disastrous, that is, for America.  Biden himself has prospered handsomely in spite of his glaring incompetence and corruption. 

Biden’s long Senate career was based on being the credit card companies’ man in Washington.  While crowing endlessly about the working class being “his people,” Biden sponsored bills allowing bank issuers to charge egregious interest rates and to make it harder for working men to escape the credit trap through bankruptcy.

When Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, he turned the confirmation of Clarence Thomas into a political smear campaign that descended into a degenerate three-ring circus. In his first campaign for president, he failed to garner a single percentage point before having to withdraw when confronted with his past lies and blatant plagiarism. He literally stole a speech detailing a British politician’s life story. He ran again in 2008 but again failed to reach even one percent of the vote.

When Barack Obama took him off the primary trash heap to make him vice president, Biden first made a hash out of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, wasting hundreds of billions on boondoggles and giveaways to Democrat cronies. Little of the recovery billions was spent on anything useful to America. Biden went on to manage our relations with China and Ukraine, pocketing untold millions for himself and his family by selling out America’s security interests.

By the time he ran for president again in 2020 he was a spent husk of his former corrupt and incompetent self, delivering asinine performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. When the Democrat establishment propped him up to once again stop Bernie Sanders, Biden was set up for the strangest presidential campaign in modern history. While Donald Trump barnstormed the nation with packed, enthusiastic rallies, Biden cowered in his basement, occasionally venturing out to speak with a few dozen voters sitting in circles drawn on the floor.

For his vice presidential pick, he chose — if you can believe it — an even more buffoonish candidate than himself.

Had it not been for Mark Zuckerberg buying and staffing government election offices in swing states, and the media and Big Tech’s censorship of the Biden family’s corruption, Biden would now be enjoying his dotage in Delaware, creeping on unsuspecting children with yarns of Corn Pop and South African arrests.

Instead, the man with one of the most astonishing records of abject failure in Washington was installed in the White House, and he has remained true to form.  As one of a hundred senators and then as vice president, there was a limit to how much damage he could do.  But as president, the shackles have been removed.

His first agenda item was to throttle our oil and gas sector, offshoring tens of thousands of good paying jobs to Russia and the Middle East — along with our energy independence. He threw open our southern border and encouraged virtually unlimited illegal immigration — during a global pandemic.

He sponsored trillions of dollars in wasteful spending, pushing our national debt to over $31 trillion.  Were it not for two Democrat senators who had not yet taken leave of their senses, it would have been even worse.  As it is, Biden has sparked the largest one-year increase in inflation in 40 years.

Biden’s “defund the police” rhetoric delivered us soaring violent crime in Democrat-run cities, while he sicced federal law enforcement on parents who object too strenuously to their children being indoctrinated with anti-White racism and LGBTQIA+ ideology. 

It can truly be said that as president, Biden’s record of failure remains unblemished.  

But now comes what may be the capstone on Biden’s long history of buffoonery and corruption.  In Ukraine, we have an armed conflict that threatens to plunge the world into an economic depression and raises the specter of nuclear war.  Not only did Biden set the stage for this calamity when, as vice president, he was in charge of Ukraine policy and led Kiev to believe that NATO membership was in Ukraine’s future, but on the eve of the Russian invasion, he refused to admit that it was not.  Then Biden all but admitted to Vladimir Putin — on live TV, no less — that NATO would not defend Ukraine if Russia chose to invade. 

In the aftermath of Russia’s invasion, Biden and his administration have crafted sanctions that seem almost designed to boomerang on America’s and Europe’s fragile post-pandemic economies, while forcing Russia into a deeper alliance with China

With the U.S. over $31 trillion in debt, Biden seems totally oblivious to the perilous position of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency and the consequences should that privileged position end. 

Economists predict that food and gasoline will cost the average U.S. household an additional $3,000 this year, and inflation threatens to push millions of lower-middle income-earners into abject poverty.

And bumbling, corrupt Joe Biden isn’t yet halfway through his first — and please God, last — term.

Big Tech Censored Dozens of Doctors, More Than 800 Accounts for COVID-19 ‘Misinformation,’ Study Finds

Big Tech Censored Dozens of Doctors, More Than 800 Accounts for COVID-19 ‘Misinformation,’ Study Finds

Major technology companies and social media platforms have removed, suppressed or flagged the accounts of more than 800 prominent individuals and organizations, including medical doctors, for COVID-19 “misinformation,” according to a new study from the Media Research Center.

The study focused on acts of censorship on major social media platforms and online services, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Ads, and TikTok.

Instances of censorship included Facebook’s decision to flag the British Medical Journal with a “fact check” and “missing context” label, reducing the visibility of a post, for a study delving into data-integrity issues with a Pfizer vaccine clinical trial.

Facebook also deleted the page of the Great Barrington Declaration, an open letter led by dozens of medical professionals, including Dr. Jay Battacharya, a Stanford epidemiologist, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a former employee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which advocated for less restrictive measures to address the dangers of COVID-19.

“Big Tech set up a system where you can’t disagree with ‘the science’ even though that’s the foundation of the scientific method,” Dan Gainor, MRC vice president of Free Speech America, told the Daily Caller National Foundation. “If doctors and academic journals can’t debate publicly, then it’s not science at all. It’s ‘religion.’”

Big Tech also scrubbed podcast host Joe Rogan’s interviews with scientists Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone, the latter of whom was instrumental in pioneering mRNA technology. Twitter banned Malone from its platform permanently in late December over the virologist’s tweets questioning the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“We tallied 32 different doctors who were censored, including mRNA vaccine innovator Dr. Robert Malone,” Gainor said. “Censoring views of credentialed experts doesn’t ensure confidence in vaccines. It undermines faith in government COVID-19 strategies.“

In addition to medical doctors, the study examined instances in which members of Congress were censored by tech platforms.

These included an incident last August in which YouTube suspended Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for posting a video arguing that “cloth masks” are not effective against the coronavirus, a view later echoed by many prominent medical commentators. Twitter also flagged a tweet from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in which he wrote “studies show those with natural immunity from a prior infection are much less likely to contract and spread COVID than those who only have vaccine-induced immunity.”

The study also examined Big Tech censorship of prominent media personalities, such as Rogan, Tucker Carlson, and Dan Bongino.

What COVID Authority Does OSHA Have?

What COVID Authority Does OSHA Have?

By Lex Greene

November 9, 2021

Just in case you have not figured it out yet, your health and medical interests are not being controlled by doctors, scientists, nurses, or any other medical professionals. It’s being controlled by power-hungry global Marxist politicians, their scumbag lawyers, and their lockstep fake news media.

OSHA exists for the sole purpose of preventing employers from endangering the health and wellbeing of their employees. As the dangers of all existing COVID19 vaccines are well-documented, any employer attempting to force or coerce these vaccines upon employees is an overt effort by the employer to knowingly place the employees at significant health risk, including potential death.

No one can say “we didn’t know.” VAERS Reports have been flooding in since the very first vaccine given. ALL VAERS reports document adverse effects from these so-called vaccines.

Biden’s recent “OSHA mandate” is just the latest in a long line of outright lies, yet another effort to create a false public perception that OSHA has any such legal authority, when in fact, no one on earth has any lawful authority to force or coerce inject anyone with anything against your will. It’s just another anti-American lawyer drafted hoax with no force of law behind it whatsoever, no doubt directed by “constitutional scholar” Barack Hussein Obama.

OSHA was created to protect worker safety conditions in manufacturing, construction, and warehousing jobs, where workplace injuries often happen due to unsafe working conditions, largely related to physical labor jobs that require the use of heavy machinery. OSHA has no other purpose or authority whatsoever, certainly as it pertains to any medical mandates to be forced or coerced by employers. In truth, OSHA is obligated to protect all employees against “lethal bio injections” which employers are currently attempting to force upon innocent frightened people.

No one voted for or elected anyone at OSHA.The Constitution doesn’t grant OSHA any authority over medical advice or procedures, and unless I missed it somehow along the way, there is no amendment to the Constitution that grants OSHA any lawmaking authority at all.

So, once again, here we are, with the entire U.S. Corporate FAKE News Media rushing to announce even more draconian unlawful mandates from yet another federal agency with no medical mandate authority whatsoever. Journalism in America died a long time ago. All American news media at present, is a mere federal propaganda machine spewing nothing but lies 24/7. The only thing more dangerous than these “vaccines” is the 24/7 fear-mongering news media, based on nothing but outright lies.

Joe Biden lacks any authority to “mandate” any medical procedure on anyone. But while occupying the White House, he does have authority to issue Executive Orders that only pertain to Executive Branch employees, under Title 5 in U.S. Code. Such orders pertain ONLY to executive branch employees, and only if such an order is itself lawful.

On September 9, 2021, Biden signed two Executive Orders pertaining to COVID19 vaccine mandates, EO 14042: COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, and EO 14043: Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees, meaning, Executive branch employees only, under Title 5 Executive Authority.

These orders pertain to no one except employees who fall under Title 5 Executive Branch authority. There are no other Executive Orders pertaining to anyone else, including the other two branches of the Federal government, any of the 50 states, or any of the 332-million American citizens who are not Executive branch employees.

OSHA is a Federal Agency, under the authority of the Executive branch. Biden can command OSHA employees, but not OSHA policies specifically.

Nothing has really changed since 1787, at least officially. The Legislative Branch remains the only branch of the Federal government with any lawmaking authority. Anything made by any other branch or agency is NOT a “law.” It’s a political agenda “policy” with no force of law behind it.

In fact, the legal definition of “mandate” is –A judicial command, order, or precept, written or oral, from a court; a direction that a court has the authority to give and an individual is bound to obey.”

In other words, “mandates” can only be issued by the Judicial branch, not the Executive or Legislative branches. Further, a court can only issue a “mandate” under the authority of existing law, which must come from the lawmaking branch, the U.S. Congress. The courts have no unilateral powers to issue “mandates” other than to enforce “laws” passed by Congress, and neither does the Executive branch.

As we all know, Congress has not passed any laws pertaining to the medical management of COVID19, and they can’t. Therefore, Biden cannot issue anything more than an Executive Order limited to Executive branch employees, and the courts cannot issue any “mandate” as there is no “law” to underpin any such order.

As neither Biden or the courts have any authority to dictate via “mandate” to private companies or citizens on this matter, neither does OSHA or any other Federal agency.

Keep in mind, the Federal government has no authority to govern any sovereign state, which is governed by its own Executive, Legislative, Judicial branches, with its own Constitution, Bill of Rights and set of Laws, all of which is protected by the 10th Amendmentto the U.S. Constitution. Wherein no Federal authority exists at all, there can be no “federal supremacy.”

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Amendment 10.Nothing in the U.S. Constitution delegates any powers to any branch of the Federal government, to dictate medical procedures of any kind. Therefore, no such power exists.

The problem is, most Americans don’t know it and most lawyers, politicians, and news media personalities, don’t want you to know it either! Most Americans just stumble their way through life without paying much attention to anything important. This is the same herd that has stumbled their way right into these lethal vaccines, without following any science at all.

The bottom line here is this…Biden has no such authority; the courts have no such authority; and certainly, agencies like OSHA have no such authority. Employers also have no such authority and again, no one has the legal right to force or coerce inject anyone with anything against their will, no one!

First and foremost, no vaccine, injection, medical treatment, or procedure can be performed on any human being without the patients “informed consent.” Informed consent is not one thing, it’s two things…

The Patient’s Consent – is the act of an individual patient granting their specific permission for someone to administer a medical device, treatment, or procedure upon them, including but not limited to vaccines. Proof of a patient’s consent must be in writing. No one has any right to perform any medical act on another human being without their expressed consent, not even your doctor. If consent is not in writing, then no consent exists, and any medical act administered to that patient is without the patient’s consent. In cases where the patient is unable to provide their consent for any reason, then the health proxy for the patient must grant their written consent in advance of any medical procedure. A patient may withhold consent at any time for any reason, without abuse or retaliation of any kind.

The Informed Patient – in order for any patient to grant their consent for any medical device, treatment, or procedure, including but not limited to vaccines, the patient must be fully and properly informed. They must understand the medical device, treatment or procedure being recommended, the ingredients in the cocktail, any and all possible negative impacts to their health and well-being, and any known history of adverse effects from the device, or procedure to be administered. Without complete and proper information, the patient is not in a position to offer any consent.

So, if you have been vaccinated for COVID19 under fake mandates, without being fully and properly informed of all potential dangers known to exist related to these particular vaccines, or without signing a patient’s consent form providing proof of your “informed consent,” then your rights as a patient have already been violated under the law and The American Medical Association Patient Bill of Rights.

You need to choose who you can believe today.Is it me and the sources I have made available to you today…Or, the people destroying our country and killing thousands with their lethal injections, lying to you for two years now, and openly admitting that their overall agenda is “mass depopulation?”

Choose wisely my dear friends… and STOP THIS INSANITY!

PRERELEASE UPDATES: 

  1. Italy just rereported their COVID19 death toll to under 4000, admitting to their public that 97% of the 130,000 previously reported COVID deaths did not die from COVID. The same is true in the USA and all countries who have not yet restated the actual COVID deaths.
  2. Federal Appeals Court issues a STOP to Joe Biden’s (OSHA) medical mandates citing “grave statutory and constitutional” concerns about the government’s mandate;”

Biden or OSHA can issue any policy they want. But no one has to follow it… We are NOT a dictatorship, yet! And everyone involved in this mass-infection effort, is liable…

AMA Patient Rights

Physicians can best contribute to a mutually respectful alliance with patients by serving as their patients’ advocates and by respecting patients’ rights. These include the right:

  1. To courtesy, respect, dignity, and timely, responsive attention to his or her needs.
  2. To receive information from their physicians and to have opportunity to discuss the benefits, risks, and costs of appropriate treatment alternatives, including the risks, benefits, and costs of forgoing treatment. Patients should be able to expect that their physicians will provide guidance about what they consider the optimal course of action for the patient based on the physician’s objective professional judgment.
  3. To ask questions about their health status or recommended treatment when they do not fully understand what has been described and to have their questions answered.
  4. To make decisions about the care the physician recommends and to have those decisions respected. A patient who has decision-making capacity may accept or refuse any recommended medical intervention.
  5. To have the physician and other staff respect the patient’s privacy and confidentiality.
  6. To obtain copies or summaries of their medical records.
  7. To obtain a second opinion.
  8. To be advised of any conflicts of interest their physician may have in respect to their care.
  9. To continuity of care. Patients should be able to expect that their physician will cooperate in coordinating medically indicated care with other health care professionals, and that the physician will not discontinue treating them when further treatment is medically indicated without giving them sufficient notice and reasonable assistance in making alternative arrangements for care.

COVID-19 and ConstructionOSHA Imposes New Guidance For Employer-Required COVID-19 Vaccines

New guidance from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is causing contractors to change their COVID-19 vaccine requirements, and many of them criticize the guidance as diametrically opposed to the Biden administration’s stated desire to increase vaccinations.

On April 20, OSHA released the new guidance in the frequently asked questions section of its website for COVID-19 safety compliance.

The question asks whether an employer should record adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccination if the employer requires the vaccine. OSHA states that if a vaccine is required, then any adverse reaction is considered work-related and therefore it must be recorded. Under OSHA rules, most employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Recorded injuries and illnesses become part of a contractors safety record.

This is the actual text of the new question and answer on the OSHA website:

“If I require my employees to take the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of their employment, are adverse reactions to the vaccine recordable?null

“If you require your employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment (i.e., for work-related reasons), then any adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine is work-related. The adverse reaction is recordable if it is a new case under 29 CFR 1904.6 and meets one or more of the general recording criteria in 29 CFR 1904.7.”

In response, several large contractors said they have changed or will change their vaccination policy to only recommend—not require—a vaccine.

“We, sadly, had to back off our (employee vaccination) mandate because OSHA did something I don’t understand at all,” said Bob Clark, founder and executive chairman of Clayco in a recent ENR Critical Path podcast. “I side with OSHA frequently, we’re in its VIP program, but on this they’re just wrong. It’s a terrible decision they’ve made and I think it’ll be overturned.”

Clark said Clayco, which participated in crafting the initial Centers for Disease Control guidance on construction site safety during the pandemic, would be communicating with OSHA through members of congress to seek changes to the guidance. A spokeswoman for OSHA did not immediately return messages asking for clarification of the new guidance. Construction industry groups universally panned the guidance and said it would hurt their efforts to encourage employees to get vaccinated.

“What they put forward could potentially discourage employers from supporting their workers getting the vaccine,” said Kevin Cannon, senior director of safety and health services at the Associated General Contractors of America. “AGC is not in support of any mandate, however we participated, April 19th through 23rd, in vaccine awareness week. We had a lot of members who were in chapters that supported the event. We even had some who hosted vaccine clinics on an active job site or in their offices.”

Cannon said some member contractors may have changed their approach to those events had they known, at the time, they could potentially “be on the hook for recording these potential adverse reactions.”

AGC is also concerned the rule puts contractors working on projects such as hospital expansions, where vaccination could potentially be an owner condition of being present on the site, in a difficult position.

Cannon said AGC has reached out to OSHA as part of the Construction Industry Safety Coalition, a group of 30 industry groups from all major types of construction, to give OSHA more context as to the burden the guidance places on contractors. AGC plans to submit a letter to the agency with chapter input to the agency.

‘Caused Significant Confusion’

Donna Reichle, senior director of public affairs at the Associated Builders and Contractors said, “We agree OSHA has caused significant confusion with this guidance. Industry groups will be seeking clarification from the agency.”

OSHA has been working for weeks on an all-industries COVID-19 emergency safety standard, which is now being reviewed by the Biden administration’s Office of Management and Budget. Release of the final rule is believed to be coming soon. It is possible the new safety standard could preempt or replace the April 20 guidance to employers. It’s unclear, at this point, if separate rules will be made for industries such as construction, where liability and risk are defined differently than in industries where work takes place in a company facility.

The number of overall COVID-19 hospitalizations and fatalities also greatly affects the recommendations CDC, OSHA and the various states have released. Cannon said the current guidance, if left unchanged, has the potential to undo months of industry work to encourage vaccination of construction workers.

“It’s almost like they haven’t talked to the rest of the Biden administration about the goal of getting as many people vaccinated as possible,” said Brian Turmail, AGC vice president of public affairs.
