Scroll down to the video in this document entitled “Henry Kissinger and Bill Gates Call for Mass Vaccination and Global Governance.” Then go to minutes 15:55 through 17:50 to view a presentation by Bill Gates. The presentation is about global warming hysteria. Gates says that the big problem is that there is too much carbon dioxide in the world, and therefore too many carbon dioxide-producing people (exhaling it). He says “we” need to reduce the world population by 15% for starters, and that in his opinion that can be achieved through doing a good job with “vaccines and reproductive health.” We need to get carbon dioxide down to zero, he says, or we will all either burn up or drown from the melting glaciers.
“Reproductive health” is leftist lingo for abortion. Obviously, more abortions = fewer people on the planet. The especially revealing thing about this, however, is that Gates claims that vaccines — particularly the impending COVID-19 vaccine — will hopefully have the same effect of reducing the population as abortions would. He doesn’t explain how, exactly, but one guess is that he is hoping that these vaccines will poison and kill a hell of a lot of people. If you believe that his vaccines will improve health, then that would be diametrically opposed to his stated primary objective of reducing the world population through abortion.12:16 pm on April 9, 2020 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
One striking characteristic of the two most important contributors to the creation of Soviet America created by the hysterical panic over the latest cold virus — Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci — is their nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude toward the tens of millions of Americans whose jobs and paychecks have been eliminated, their businesses ruined and gone forever, their savings decimated, and their imprisonment under mass house arrest, watched over by snotty, arrogant, local cops who suffer disproportionately from little-man syndrome. Gates, Fauci, the “public health establishment,” and the barking chorus professional liars in the “media” went berserk when President Trump stated the obvious — that life is full of tradeoffs, and that an economic depression may well cause more death and destruction of life than any cold virus can. We don’t want “the cure to be worse than the disease,” he said.
The great Nobel prize-winning Austrian School of Economics economist F.A. Hayek put his finger on the government-planning mentality of people like Gates and Fauci in his 1944 book,The Road to Serfdom, one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. On page 55 Hayek wrote:
“The movement for planning owes its present strength largely to the fact that” it is comprised of “almost all the single-minded idealists, all the men and women who have devoted their lives to a single task. The hopes they place in planning, however, are the result not of a comprehensive view of society but rather of a very limited view and often the result of a great exaggeration of the importance of the ends they place foremost . . . . ” This makes “the very men who are most anxious to plan society the most dangerous if they are allowed to do so — and the most intolerant of the planning of others. From the saintly and single-minded idealist to the fanatic is often but a step.”
People like Gates and Fauci need to be kept as far away from power as possible, in other words.11:12 am on April 9, 2020 Email Thomas DiLorenzo

COVID-19: CDC says 14,700 but no one knows since anyone who dies from cancer, heart disease, lung disease, tuberculosis, and other diseases who also happens to have – or is suspected of having — ANY type of coronavirus in his bloodstream is labeled a COVID-19 death by American hospitals everywhere.

An empty commercial building in my neighborhood was gutted about six months ago and then lots of construction work commenced. Naturally, all the neighbors were curious as to what would be coming in to the new building. My guess was yet another grossly-overpriced, tourist-trap, womens’ dress shop. But no, finally a sign appeared on the front of the building announcing a new (tourist trap) restaurant that specializes in — get this — “Asian street food.” They haven’t posted the menu yet, so I can’t tell you if they will be serving bats and snakes ala Wuhan.
The adventurous may dine there and then if they’re really risk takers, will head over the new (although filed for bankruptcy) IPIC theatre in town — my pick for malinvestment of the year last year. (They have big leather couch seating and provide you with a blanket and pillows that they claim were cleaned since the last group used them). The building would make a good parking garage.5:16 pm on April 8, 2020 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
The singer John Prine died last week of what was announced as “coronavirus complications.” But he had had two types of cancer, including lung cancer, and part of one of his lungs had been removed several years ago to treat this. If comorbidities are ignored when giving the cause of death, the lethality of the coronavirus will be overestimated.4:12 pm on April 8, 2020 Email David Gordon
From a 2019 Yale University study:
Mice fed a ketogenic diet were better able to combat the flu virus than mice fed food high in carbohydrates, according to a new Yale University study published Nov. 15 in the journal Science Immunology.
The ketogenic diet — which for people includes meat, fish, poultry, and non-starchy vegetables — activates a subset of T cells in the lungs not previously associated with the immune system’s response to influenza, enhancing mucus production from airway cells that can effectively trap the virus, the researchers report.

Here’s a shot of the closed (for the past month) beach that is a fifteen-minute walk from my house. Our local mini-Mussolinis are worried that someone might get too much sun, fresh air, and exercise. There are usually several police cars patrolling the area. Anyone caught walking around with a fishing pole would probably be cuffed and dragged off to the slammer. Something to think about the next time you’re standing in that government-endorsed long, crowded line at Costco.

. . . is that with very few exceptions, every governor, mayor, and congressperson is a totalitarian thug who revels in jumping at the chance of abolishing all civil liberties whenever given an excuse to do so. Every single one of them should be immediately recalled, tarred and feathered, shunned by their communities, and their livelihoods destroyed, just as they have destroyed the livelihoods of millions of Americans with their emergency decrees and their shutdown-and-shut-up-go-home-and-lose-your-paycheck orders, enforced by armed local police who deserve the same fate.11:23 am on April 8, 2020 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
In response to “Regarding Closed Churches, Pastor Josh Hurley Asks, ‘Remember?’”, Scott in Colorado sent me a sermon he preached earlier this month on the same topic. He kindly shared both a Power Point presentation and his script; either or both are yours for the asking when you email me. They’re ideal for persuading your siblings in the Lord who’ve swallowed the media’s hysterical bilge because they present the facts about C-virus and Christians’ response (both actual and Scriptural) in calm, rational tones.
Meanwhile, have you noticed how shuttered chapels offer identical excuses? I blogged yesterday about one of my favorites (“We love our neighbors way too much to endanger them by opening our doors during this bubonic plague—ah, coronavirus”), but there are a couple more that appear on ecclesiastical website after ecclesiastical website: “The Church is more than our physical assembly”; “We want to honor our rulers by following their advice”—oh, gross: why would any “Christian” honor rulers who slaughter innocents and thieve from us to finance such murder, let alone advocate sodomy, sexual assault at airports, endless wars, etc., ad infinitum?
As I surveyed these websites, the similarities became increasingly eerie—until one preacher inadvertently explained on a page dated March 13: “There was a state-wide conference call this morning by the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives that informed pastors as to how to proceed with caution.”
Now the monolithic closings and justifications make sense, don’t they?
Finally, a word of caution: if your pastor caved so easily to Leviathan’s “suggestion” that he shut his doors without any pressure beyond a conference call and perhaps some “shaming” on Facebook had he remained open, how fast will he accede to armed soldiers demanding lists of his members? Outright persecution and torture of Christians are coming to this country, just as they did to Hitler’s Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, and all totalitarian, atheist regimes.

Logan’s Roadhouse closed up with mass firings. Expect the rapid disintegration of “non-essential” business that, of course, provides essential jobs. These people, because they’ve been terminated, now have no access to temporary COBRA. Expect a house of cards on the retail and restaurant front, for starters.
Keep saying that it was all about “keeping grandpa safe,” folks. Then watch Dr. Zeke Emanual on MSNBC (yes, Rahm Emanual’s brother) and hear him say, from high up on his comfortable, well-paid throne, that folks and businesses must be kept locked up for 18 months.

The parent company that owns the Logan’s Roadhouse restaurant chain has closed all 261 of its locations and fired nearly all its 18,000 furloughed employees.
The Wall Street Journal reported CraftWorks Holdings, Inc, which also owns Old Chicago restaurants, also had terminated employee benefits, including health insurance, according to an internal memo.
Restaurant Business Online reported benefits ended March 31, with termination meaning former employees do not have access to COBRA insurance.
Workers were reportedly told that the restaurants may not reopen.
Julian Assange’s lawyers have been unable to contact him for three weeks. Not in person, not via video. This cat and mouse game, orchestrated by the US CIA and the UK government, stamps on the face of Western traditions of liberalism and light — and few seem to care.
Belmarsh is a dirty place, in so many ways. A Corona virus-related death in the prison has already been reported. The stage is set for Star Chamber judge Vanessa Baraitser and everything she represents to achieve a small victory through an ignominious and “blameless” death of a man whose vision of government and state corporatist transparency struck deep fear into the global ruling classes.
The time for masks will soon be over. Almost two decades ago, I challenged the status quo in my workplace, the politicized Pentagon, for creating urgency when there was none, publicizing lies when the truth did not support the political agenda. I spoke directly to investigative reporters with Knight Ridder (as portrayed in the film Shock and Awe); UK security analyst Katharine Gun took far greater risks in providing documentation, that if more people had been aware of sooner, would have saved millions of lives and trillions of dollars.
Films and popular media coverage of the truth took a decade to percolate. Had Wikileaks been available in 2001 and 2002, global awareness of government and corporate lies relating to the Iraq war alone would have saved lives, protected the environment, and slowed or stopped the new Cold Wars that still invigorate Western foreign policy. The truth is owned by all of us; those willing to step up and risk careers, reputations, and even their own lives to speak truth to power are a small, and sadly, expendable number. Julian Assange and his vision of simple transparency, for the people, with technical protection for witnesses to evil, has saved lives, improved governance, and elevated the concept of honesty everywhere. He is the very product of the Enlightenment, a shining knight of the best traditions of European and American values.
Just over a year ago, a famous Pentagon whistleblower passed away, at the ripe age of 92. Ernie Fitzgerald focused on budgetary, technological, and acquisition malfeasance, and his style was perhaps easier to swallow that that of a newer generation of truth-cherishing geniuses. Ernie didn’t die a shell of a man in a prison, doped up on CIA interrogatory and dissociative cocktails, mistreated, and surrounded by people who want him to just go away. He also wasn’t found in the trunk of his car, with his tongue cut out, like “workplace suicide” Steven Luke.
The times they are a’changing. Please say a prayer for Julian Assange tonight. And as masks come off, in coming months, let us renew the fight against the big lies and government evil where we find it, with a new kind of boldness, and our eyes wide open.

Among the excuses pastors cite for closing our churches is their immense love for others (it’s a strange kinda love that denies folks an opportunity to hear the Gospel, but there we are). As one man of the cloth explained in an email to parishioners, he was suspending services “in a spirit of love for one another and with hope of slowing the spread of this virus within our communities, ….We want to do our part to prevent the spread of illness, especially to those who are at greater risk.”
Hooooo-kay. Intriguing that until Caesar ordered churches to close, no priest, vestry, or board of trustees worried about the 40,000 folks who die in car accidents each year—some of whom may have been on their way to worship. If clerics’ selfless love is so overwhelming, shouldn’t they long ago have cancelled services to spare drivers’ lives?
But I digress. However much concern these preachers may profess, the world doesn’t see it that way. Rather, their dereliction of duty results from the low priority they give Christ—or so this op-ed assumes: “Most of the nation’s clergy do not see packing pews as defensible, much less essential, during this pandemic.” In other words, loving and obeying the Lord comes well after preserving our health.
On a related note, those of us who’d rather die on our feet than live on our knees also prefer to lie abed with the flu in a free country than enjoy perfect health as a slave.5:33 pm on April 7, 2020 Email Becky Akers
The surgeon general — the guy who wears that funny looking Captain Kangaroo-style “uniform” during press conferences from the CDC — was all over the news over the weekend predicting that this week will be like a combination of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. The worst day of many Americans’ lives, said the captain (er, I mean, the “general”).
I haven’t spotted any Japanese bombers or mad terrorists at all here in South Florida. More people (Mencken called them “Boobus Americanus”) seem to be wearing masks at the grocery store and even while driving alone in their cars, and a few more ninety-year-olds in nursing homes with cancer/heart disease/lung disease/diabetes/tuberculosis reportedly passed away from “the coronavirus,” but other than that it’s been all quiet on the Western front. Even the governor of New York said the number of coronavirus deaths there declined.
Who do you believe, the CDC “models” or your own lyin’ eyes?
UPDATE: Keith L. writes that “actually, the surgeon general is right because they are all false flags.”

Remember that time Daniel was told not to pray: His friends told him it would be dangerous to keep praying and he was supposed to respect the king. So, instead he compromised and went into his inner closet to pray?
Remember that time Esther had the opportunity to save her entire people but Mordechai reminded her that it would be disrespectful to the king and would be dangerous to even try, so instead she went and locked herself in her room and just asked God to go speak to the king?
Remember that time Shadraq, Meshaq, and Abednego were told they had to bow to the king and when they realized how disrespectful and dangerous it would be not to, they decided to just bow and pray together later in private?
Remember when Daniel was told he had to eat the King’s meat in violation of his faith and his friends told him to quit being a troublemaker and to save his life to fight later so he did?
Remember how the disciples were whipped and told by the authorities to quit talking about Jesus in public so they went back to fishing and tax collecting, trusting that God was sovereign and must be working in another way?
Remember when Abraham was going up the mountain with his son to sacrifice him when he realized how stupid and unwise it all was and was home by dinner?
Remember when they arrested Paul and were beating him and he thought, “I don’t want to cause any trouble for these guys, I better not tell them I am a Roman. I’ll take my beating and call it a day. No need to talk to the governor.”
Ya. Me neither.
Your faith without works is a dead faith, Church. If you aren’t acting out of faith right now, you need to repent.
Thanks very much to Scott Watson, who spotted this righteous call to action and sent it my way. I contacted Rev. Hurley and asked both his permission to reprint it here and whether I should include a link to his church’s website. Whereupon he unleashed further gems: “We actually moved 6 months ago to disband our church and move into many home churches in anticipation for this event. As such, I don’t have a corporate church name or website to reference any longer.”
I was so thrilled I nigh wept! Citing Isaiah 5, Rev. Hurley added, “The natural, unintended result of the small churches closing every day in America while the big ones get bigger is that the government has more and more control over the church. Most of them have succumbed to the 501(c)(3) pressures and have simply become corporations wielded by the government. …If the church is only about the informational model the government just reduced it to, then what is the point in going? After all, information is everywhere. We need community. …”
Finally, this genius gives Romans 13 a whole new twist: “We have forsaken God’s command to respect our governing authorities… When I say governing authorities, I am not talking about people. I am talking about Articles 1-7 of the Constitution and its 27 Amendments. We sit idly by while totalitarians, controlled by globalists, shred it before our eyes. And, we do it in the name of pursuing peace and security.”

In an earlier blog I cited my old friend and co-author, Professor James T. Bennett, as once saying that to government bureaucrats, the absence of a crisis is a crisis. This is a crisis crisis to the bureaucracy. Bureaucrats and their budgets always prosper during a crisis -real or perceived. Every single one of them works diligently, day in and day out, to create the perception of a crisis in whatever area that involves their useless employment in order to boost their chances for ever bigger budget allotments.
I bring this up because I’ve been monitoring online the Florida death count from the coronavirus, and, unless the internet sites that I’m looking at are faulty, the number seems to have been stuck in the low 200s for the past two days. Not that I take at face value any of these statistics, since the majority of such deaths are of elderly people with pre-existing serious illnesses. This of course can all change tomorrow after the bureaucracy discovers this and “updates” the numbers.2:43 pm on April 6, 2020 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
When Ron Paul was running for the Republican nomination one of the remarks he made was (paraphrasing) that his bigger worry about a border wall was that it would be used to keep Americans in, as opposed to keeping foreigners out. He of course was widely ridiculed for this by the LMS (Lying Media Scum).

Seeing those “spontaneous” gatherings of people singing “God Bless America” and cheering EMT workers on television reminded me of a story my old friend Yuri Maltsev once told me.

The story is about a neighbor woman who almost every day would open her apartment window and shout praise to the Communist Party. “Why do you do that?” Yuri asked her. The answer was something along the lines of “So they don’t suspect I am not loyal and obedient.”
