As TFTP reported this week, despite many countries across the planet achieving vaccination rates as high as 100%, covid cases are still spiking. Because the state’s only tools are force and coercion, as the seasonal spikes inevitably hit, governments across the world are ushering in more tyranny. But after nearly two years of being locked down, shut in, covered up, driven to poverty and watching the police state thrive, many of we the people have had enough. They are mad as hell and they’re not gonna take it anymore.
On Monday, Austria rolled out the most tyrannical measures yet and segregated society into two classes: vaccinated and unvaccinated. If you are unvaccinated, you are forced to stay in your home and are not allowed to go out into public unless it is for food or other explicitly designated activity.
Multiple videos of cops patrolling stores and demanding to see citizens’ vaccination status have surfaced since, and Austria is beginning to resemble a place similar to 1930s Germany.
According to her bio on her website, Mariana Francesca Mazzucato is an economist with dual Italian–US citizenship. She is a professor at University College London in Economics of Innovation and Public Value and she is the founder and director of their Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. However, according to her recent essay, she’s also a tyrannical advocate of economic lockdowns. Unlike the crippling coronavirus lockdowns that sent overdoses into record breaking territory and childhood suicides through the roof, these lockdowns are for climate change. Unfortunately, she is not alone in her views either.
In her essay, which was endorsed by many in the establishment media, Mazzucato pushes for draconian measures to curb what she refers to as a tipping point on climate change. If we don’t take “dramatic interventions” immediately, human civilization as we know it will come to an end and so will the planet, according to Mazzucato. These interventions are not child’s play either. According to Mazzucato’s paper, which was reprinted in mainstream media outlets across the planet:
Under a “climate lockdown,” governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling. To avoid such a scenario, we must overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently.
Given what we know about the covid lockdowns, the effects of such a system would likely have devastating consequences for every country and send shockwaves throughout every socioeconomic arena. So why on Earth would politicians and media be chomping at the bit to get on board?
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the American people have been told to “follow the science.” Yet for a year and a half, they’ve heard contradicting messages from self-appointed prophets of “the science” like Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
We learned that politicians who claimed their decisions were science-driven often ignored scientific findings that didn’t fit certain political narratives. We discovered that scientists are fallible human beings, and some would let personal interests and political views cloud their judgment.
Is science itself one of the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic? I asked Dr. Scott Atlas at the 13th annual Freedom Conference hosted by the Steamboat Institute, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization. Formerly a professor and chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center, Atlas is now a senior fellow in health policy at the Hoover Institution.
Atlas has been under constant attacks by the left and the corporate media since he served as a special adviser to former President Trump and a member of the White House coronavirus task force from August to November 2020. The New York Times and the Washington Post ran hit pieces on Atlas, questioning his qualifications despite his distinguished career and scholarship.
Google-owned YouTube also removed a 50-minute video of Atlas’s interview with the Hoover Institute. Twitter took down his tweet that questioned the effectiveness of masks.
The Hollywood elites have had their own set of rules for filming from California to Australia throughout the coronavirus pandemic, a double standard that sets them apart from working Americans. A-list actress Nicole Kidman is just the latest example of this Hollywood privilege.
Hong Kong’s government said Thursday a quarantine exemption has been given to an individual to perform “designated professional work” in the former British colony, the Associated press reports.
It came with news the Australian actress did not have to spend time in quarantine when she arrived in the city to film a new Amazon Prime Video series called Expats.
“The case in discussion has been granted permission to travel to Hong Kong with a quarantine exemption for the purpose of performing designated professional work, taking into account that it is conducive to maintaining the necessary operation and development of Hong Kong’s economy,” the government said in a statement, without identifying Kidman by name.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has mimicked Australia’s top public health official by telling citizens, “Don’t talk to your neighbors,” after the country went into full lockdown as a result of just a single COVID case being detected.
As we highlighted earlier, the entire country has been placed under lockdown for three days, with Auckland in lockdown for a week, following the discovery of a single coronavirus infection in the coastal town of Coromandel.
Citizens are now being told to avoid work, school and leisure activities while only venturing outside for “essential” reasons like purchasing food.
However, Ardern went further, claiming the risk of passing on the infection was so high that people shouldn’t even have conversations with their own neighbors.
New South Wales’ Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said the quiet part out loud and admitted the Covid mandates are about ‘restricting movement.’
Kerry Chant told Australians to ignore their own next door neighbors.
“We all need to work together. We need to limit our movements. We need to consider whenever we leave our house, that anyone with us and anyone that we come into contact with could convey the virus,” Kerry Chant said.
Chant told Aussies to view everyone outside of their home as a threat and admitted face masks don’t work.
“Whilst it is in human nature to engage in conversation with others, to be friendly, unfortunately this is not the time to do that. So even if you run into your next door neighbor in the shopping center, in the grocery shop… don’t start up a conversation. Now is the time for minimizing your interactions with others even if you’ve got a mask – do not think that affords total protection.”
Billionaire Google Co-founder Larry Page, who has been isolating from the rest of the world by buying remote Fijian islands, was granted access to enter New Zealand, while practically everyone else was barred from entering the country, it has emerged.
Page reportedly sought medical treatment for his twelve year old son earlier this year in the country’s capital Aukland.
While even New Zealand citizens and permanent residents of the country were barred from entering without facing a raft of restrictions, including spending two weeks at a government quarantine facility, Page was allowed to just walk right in.
Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is calling on citizens to outright ignore new mask mandates and potential lockdowns that may be imposed as a result of the Delta variant.
In an op-ed published Wednesday on Fox News, Paul called on citizens to “choose freedom” over accepting new mask mandates and lockdowns from alleged “petty tyrants,” specifically House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Joe Biden, and local “bureaucrats.”
“Resist,” Paul begins his op-ed, “They can’t arrest us all. They can’t keep all your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed — although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.”
