I’ve told many of you who’ve asked me about covid mandates for kids that this was coming. So here, as promised. I hope it’s useful to some. Link is below.

Jenin Younes says Big Tech is coerced by the government to censor. The Biden administration is threatening ant-trust. Your 1st amendment rights are violated because they are not private actors. She talks about the New Civil Liberties Alliance fighting the directory.libsyn.com/episode…

#ICYMI: The government is trying to censor #freespeech they don't agree with. We're here to stop them. NCLA's Jenin Younes @Leftylockdowns1 and John Vecchione join The Bill Walton Show to discuss our lawsuit against government censorship on social media. piped.kavin.rocks/gxss_UL3Zs0

When you get tangled up with the “Administrative State” their legal process is the punishment, says John Vecchione of the New Civil Liberties Alliance. Essentially, you’re up against judge, jury and executioner. @Leftylockdowns1

For those in @MaudMaron's district, the choice is between a tireless advocate for open schools, education over indoctrination, and an end to senseless mandates, and Bill DeBlasio. Need I say more? Vote for @MaudMaron if you can

The Biden Administration's COVID "experts" have made absurd claims such as: (1) masks are 80% effective at preventing infection (Walensky); (2) CDC shouldn't be subject to judicial oversight (Fauci); "misinformation" is a leading cause of death (Califf). Yet people actually 1/

(to be fair, Fauci's appointment preceded Biden, but he still is operating on behalf of the administration at this point)

If the government, media, and society at large insist you accept a given proposition and are bad or wrong to question it, that’s a pretty good sign it ought to be questioned

The Times prints what is to date its most despicable and dishonest article. It blames a rise in vaccine skepticism solely on “misinformers” without addressing the fact that coercion has made many people question it all; ties opposition to vaccine 1/ nytimes.com/2022/05/25/magaz…

mandates to far right movements; claims that vaccines are 100 percent safe for everyone (a contention no one who knows anything about vaccines would ever make); and doesn’t distinguish between vaccines that stop transmission and those that don’t - a rather crucial omission 2/

Worst of all, it sneers at those who oppose mandates on personal choice grounds, as though only idiots could think an individual should choose whether or not to inject something into his or her body. Utterly appalling article. Even horrifying by the Times’s standards 3/3

I almost forgot. The authors claim that the leaders of the movement are profiting, a dubious claim for the most part, while ignoring the clear profit motive the drug manufacturers have

Absolutely correct. Guns, abortion and immigration are all like this. The political parties know they can't decisively solve them, but they sure do love fundraising off them.

It is not a bug though, it is a feature. The machinery is designed to keep us fighting so that they can fundraise, mobilize their bases, etc. and win that seat. That's it. The goal is not solving problems. It is winning that seat... (5/x)

Sorry but @RandPaul is wrong. We can’t just trust people to distinguish truth from error. That’s very naive thinking. Only official committees of people can do that. This is basic science. Need to fight disinformation that says otherwise.
This short clip from @RandPaul is the most important minute & fifteen seconds you’ll watch this year, maybe this century. If a majority understood this, we could begin to fix what’s gone horribly wrong in this country. Bravo.

Look at this chart! It shows that people who believe similar things are working together and sometimes writing stuff for the same institutions! Absolutely solid proof that there is an evil Koch funded cabal at the center of the antilockdown movement.
Should we really allow this plot to continue as if it is not happening?
