‘We are entering very dark times’ – Nick Hudson on censorship; FMF award

by Claire Badenhorst

The Free Market Foundation has presented its very first award to PANDA co-founder Nick Hudson for freedom of expression, decentralisation, and an evolutionary approach. Alec Hogg caught up with Hudson to unpack what the award means to him and the rest of the PANDA team. “It’s been a long, hard struggle and a lot of the people at PANDA have put up with enormous risks and challenges to their livelihoods and careers,” Hudson explains. “So to have this recognition for them I think is particularly welcome and important.” – Claire Badenhorst

Nick Hudson on the award PANDA received from the Free Market Foundation:

It was a delightful surprise, yes, and we had a wonderful evening last night with a fairly lengthy presentation and [I] thoroughly enjoyed it. I think true to their colours, they were looking at the work that PANDA had done and our fight against dogma and a very bigoted version of science, and I think they saw in that something that was consistent with the values of their organisation, and I think it was on that basis that the citation reads as it does and they decided that the members of PANDA deserved the recognition and it was very welcome. You know, it’s been a long, hard struggle and a lot of the people at PANDA have put up with enormous risks and challenges to their livelihoods and careers. So to have this recognition for them I think is particularly welcome and important.

On why people at PANDA are under pressure:

There’s a very strange authoritarian aspect that has infiltrated our academic institutions and public health institutions and this notion of science as an authoritarian concept, as there being such a thing as settled science, as science is something that you should follow, almost a trademarked ‘the science’ kind of concept. And it’s very antithetical to what science is actually about, which is conjecture and criticism, dissent and debate, driving the formation of new knowledge, the creation of new knowledge. It’s in that authoritarian environment where somebody who looks at the data has a different interpretation and sees the world differently from the average person. You know, they’re at risk of being cancelled and censured and bullied, really, by these people who are doing something that couldn’t, in any normal world, be described as scientific.

Well, it’s symptomatic of the really weird thinking of a lot of our critics because none of what we have to say is anything to deny the existence of Coronavirus. Our perspective from the beginning has been that the response has been disproportionate and later on the response has actually worsened the situation. So it’s rather strange to attack people who take this perspective and support it with data and quality scientific perspectives and somehow refute it by things getting very bad in a country that has had amongst the most insane policy responses on the planet.

On why he says our policy responses were insane:

We have adopted policies which were already evidently not working in the rest of the world. It didn’t take a lot to look at the emergent data. We did it a year ago. And since then, around 50 papers have been published showing that the stringent restrictions that have been imposed have done nothing. They, of course, have lots of collateral damage involved and they worsen the public health outcomes in that regard but it’s been quite patently clear for more than a year now that lockdowns, which were ruled out by all prior policy guidelines for respiratory virus policies, have indeed been a bad idea and that those guidelines ruled them out for good reason. It’s not a very contentious thing to be saying. The contentious thing to say is that lockdowns are good and that they should continue. That is the novel and unusual thing to be saying and it’s been proven wrong systematically through the entire course of this pandemic. There isn’t a single country’s curve where we can see the beneficial impact or the imposition of restrictions or mask mandates or the detrimental effect of the release of those restrictions or mask mandates. And it’s just been astonishing to me.

You know, when Texas opened up and said, that’s it, no more mask mandates, no more lockdowns, these guys on the other side of the debate called them Neanderthals, predicted disaster and it’s been months now and absolutely nothing has happened. You would think that at some point these pro-lockdown people would start to eat some humble pie and stop encouraging policymakers to enact these restrictions.

On the third wave in Gauteng: 

Yeah, it’s a terrible situation. It just wouldn’t be made any better by continuing with mask mandates or going to Level 5 or whatever. I mean, there’s just no evidence for that claim being valid. And, you know, your heart goes out to anybody who’s in that kind of position of having to make these life and death decisions, but I believe very firmly that we’re in this situation precisely because we locked down so hard at the beginning. It would have been much better for us to have pursued the effective strategy of countries like Sweden.

The other thing that’s relevant here and not being talked about enough is that there appears to be a quite high representation among the sick people who are recently vaccinated. And that is not being analysed and discussed enough because that’s another area that is profoundly censored but it’s a conversation that has to be had. We see all around the world resurgences in Coronavirus deaths that coincide with the inception of mass vaccination plans. We have our theories as to what may be causing that and those theories may be wrong but the discussion should be had. Instead, what we get is this blanket silence with no debate happening and everything that we learn has leaked out of official forums and that kind of thing.

On what PANDA stands for: 

So we stand for proportionality in response and the importance of conducting cost-benefit analysis before conducting massively impactful restrictions, number one. Number two, we have since the very beginning pointed out that these non-pharmaceutical interventions by and large just haven’t shown any benefit in the data and that the one that held a lot of promise, which was to concentrate on ventilation, especially in hospital and nursing home settings, to reduce the viral titers in the air in their settings was one thing that was really worth paying attention to. That’s only been belatedly acknowledged by the World Health Organisation in the last few weeks. Both the World Health Organisation and the CDC have quietly slipped onto their websites paragraphs saying that, yes, airborne aerosol transmission is an important component of transmission of Coronavirus, and the World Health Organisation for the first time made a nod in the direction of the importance of maintaining good infection control by use of improved ventilation. We’ve been saying that since May last year. Now it gets recognised. Instead, people continue running around doing all the things that they did when WHO initially emphasised fomites and droplet transmission – all the sanitising, all the social distancing stickers, the weird little bits of Plexiglass and so on are still what you see when you walk around. Those are, in our minds, just a completely poor effort in light of the scientific evidence that’s emerged.

On the effectiveness of mask-wearing: 

I mean the intuition is, yes, that some percentage of the droplets, the larger droplets would be stopped by a mask – but that’s only a one-stage analysis. The next stage is, once large droplets have been stopped by your mask and you exhale over those droplets, you cause them to turn into aerosols which stay suspended in the air. That’s also not a very difficult intuition to grasp and it’s a better one because it’s consistent with the data, which, as I say and have repeatedly said, is consistent with there being no benefit to a slight harm from the imposition of mask mandates.

I don’t think you should wear a mask. It’s a kind of fantastical idea that viral transmission of respiratory viruses will be stopped by cloth masks. Even the idea that surgical masks are effective is extremely contentious and seems only to be valid to a small degree in the highly controlled settings where the masks are fitted and worn by qualified professionals. There’s modest evidence in favour of those but there’s absolutely nothing to support the effectiveness of cloth masks. The experiments that have supposedly been done to support them are all highly contrived and the European CDC, which did an analysis of the studies that had been conducted, came to the conclusion that all the evidence in favour of mask-wearing was of no evidentiary quality and most of it reflected strong bias. And, you know, you can’t really argue with an analysis like that.

On Covid censorship and the oppression of free speech:

From the start, this whole response to Coronavirus has adopted a decidedly technocratic securicrat surveillance-type tone with oppression of free speech, with all sorts of impositions on liberties and rights that are considered the norm in democratic societies. We’ve been promised time and time again that it was just temporary and that it was two weeks or three weeks or until the vulnerable had been vaccinated or until whatever. The goalposts just keep moving. It should be clear to any thinking person that what we are seeing is an assault on liberal values and it’s not done in the interest of public health. It’s not about a virus.

I think the thing that’s not entering the public discourse nearly enough is the extent to which our institutions of media and public health have been captured by a handful of entities, with the effect that neither the journalists nor the scientists could even speak out if they disagreed with the policies or conventional narratives of the times. And that is just becoming more and more evident by the day. Editorial policy is not free and scientific opinion is not free. So we are entering, I think, very dark times. And this is one of the the hushed-up stories.

There are elements of ideology and culture that I think are the easiest ones to describe. Our universities for decades now have been teaching the completely bogus narrative of postmodernism, of critical theory. This is where wokeness comes from in all its manifestations. This is where safety culture and cancel culture come from. They are fundamentally illiberal ideas. They are fundamentally unscientific ideas. And we can’t get too surprised when we see that our culture is full of people who behave in this fashion. So that’s my starting point, is to talk about ideology. But we also need to look at, as I say, at the influence of some of these super national organisations and the degree to which they have captured our institutions. You cannot find a single mainstream scientist who is not subject to that kind of pressure and who could actually speak out even if they decided that they disagreed with what is being done.

The central question is, why is there no discussion? Why is there no debate? Why are critics of public policy not being engaged with openly and in the public eye? And there are several reasons for this. First of all, there’s this stranglehold that these supernational organisations have, which we’ve already spoken about and secondly, there’s a problem in the culture – an ideological problem – that is antithetical to normal scientific discourse. But thirdly, a lot of these scientists are in very conflicted positions and one of the main reasons they will not entertain debate is they are fully aware that those conflicts will be exposed. So I see it as a three-fold problem that’s very serious and very costly to our society.

On what happens to PANDA next:

We carry on fighting. With every passing day, people come around to our view and begin challenging the narrative that they’ve been fed. They begin seeing that what public health officials all around the world have done is to promote a narrative of fear – fear that causes people to possess a completely distorted perception of risk. The fear is always going in one direction, which is towards overestimating risk and, you know, in those circumstances, it’s terminal to critical thinking and to the ability to make wise decisions and evaluate risk appropriately. So what we see is with every passing day, people wake up one by one and once they’ve woken up, once they come in the direction of open science, in the direction of facts, data and evidence over this very false narrative, it’s an absorptive state. They never turn around and go back into the fear mindset. We don’t see people who have sat down with us and gone through the information in the cold light of day, looking at our perspectives, you know, from a calm and considered perspective, we don’t see those people suddenly waking up the next morning and and wetting the bed. So we believe that that will just continue, that it’s a slow and gradual process of bringing people back to sanity, back to a sense of proportionality and perspective.

I suspect the organisation will remain involved in science rather than gravitate towards politics because it’s not only public health that is subject to this kind of very almost Stalinist approach and culture. I think as we go the frame of reference will expand. The very important thing is that for a lot of the scientists who are involved, many of whom have to be cryptically involved, PANDA represents an absolute lifeline. It connects them back to the science that they first fell in love with and it seems to me that in many ways, PANDA presents the only place to them where they are able to have open debate and discussion with their colleagues, where they’re allowed to be wrong without being shouted at and allowed to learn and change their minds. The scientists appear really to enjoy that. Our weekly open science meetings are now so well attended that we’re thinking of having to break them up into channels. And it’s really a joy to be involved in that because the rest of the week we confronted by this shouty, woke kind of attitude that seems so disconnected from the real world and from the data. So it’s almost as if PANDA has become an oasis for people who love science as opposed to, you know, loving dogma.

On the team at PANDA: 

I guess it would be much more depressing if I didn’t have access to such wonderful people and if I wasn’t able to tap the brains of these guys to understand what’s going on. And I mean, the last week was a case to point, again, something not mentioned anywhere in the mainstream media because it runs in the face of the narrative but very big news.

A scientist has managed to uncover the deleted sequences from the database of genetic variants of Covid, which has been a source of great suspicion and head-scratching for us. There was in this database a move taken by a Chinese scientist to delete sequences which he had uploaded. Now, this guy managed to track those sequences back, they were originally up in the cloud and they turned out not to have been entirely deleted. And so he managed to discover these sequences and what they reveal is fascinating because it shines a light on the much larger diversity of the cluster of viruses that you would describe as the SARS viruses. It raises the question that we’ve been saying is suggested by the epidemiological data of whether this virus wasn’t actually around much earlier than the December 2019 Wuhan outbreak. It could quite possibly, based on these phylogenetic trees, have been around for years before and that highlights the craziness of the policies we’ve been pursuing. If it wasn’t even noticed, if there was no epidemic being spoken about, when the cluster of viruses was in broad circulation, then that would really draw the line under efforts to speak of lockdown appropriateness or effectivenes

Quesnel World Wide END THE LOCKDOWN Rally a Resounding Success!

Quesnel World Wide Rally a Resounding Success!

“Silence is consent, silence is compliance and silence is submission. What we really need right now is courage and unity.  Fear has no place where freedom reigns, so let’s continue to stand for our freedoms.” ~Tami Viktil, Rally Co-organizer

By

Arthur Topham

Quesnel finally came of age with its conscientious, peaceful participation in the World Wide Rally for Freedom held Saturday, March 20th, 2021 in LeBourdais Park.

Following months of discussions on social media about the global crisis now facing humanity plus a fury of online activity over the past couple of weeks, the organizers of the laudable event, Tamara Morneau and Tami Viktil of Quesnel, were finally able to garner the necessary support to gather people together and drag the Gold Pan City onto the world stage.

What happened was living proof of Margaret Mead’s memorable quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

A snowstorm in the early hours of Saturday didn’t bode well for the first day of Spring but knowing the people of the Cariboo are a tough and determined lot this writer had no doubt that folks of the calibre Margaret Mead spoke of would surely arrive…and they did. 

Not in droves but more in dribbles people began gathering around the International Friendship Stage in LeBourdais Park, a fitting spot indeed to host an International Rally for Freedom. 

Having consented to assist the Rally organizers by covering the event for the Quesnel Cariboo Sentinel and supplying them with a sound system and a source of electricity (the City unwilling to turn on the power to the stage) I arrived early to set up the speakers and amplifier and mic. 

As the relatively small but committed citizenry (they appeared to be mostly seniors) began to gather I noticed two of Quesnel’s local RCMP officers walking across the park grounds toward the stage. As I was standing directly above on stage connecting the sound system when they approached it one of the masked officers said hello and asked me what my name was. Given the nature of the event I didn’t feel the need to ask him for his badge beforehand and so I replied, “Arthur”. He stared at me for a moment and then replied, “Oh! Mr. Topham. I didn’t recognize you without your suit and tie on.”

He asked me if I was the organizer of the event. I replied, “No, I’m just assisting the organizers by setting up the sound system.” After some brief discussion the officer then said, “I hope you’re aware that there is a $2300.00 fine for any one who organizes an open outdoor event such as this.”

Knowing all about the NDP government’s draconian, unethical, immoral and illegal efforts to control the general public and prohibit citizens from gathering (even in open areas) to discuss events I replied, “Yes, I’ve heard about those tickets.” Following his notification he never asked me who the organizers were but just said that they were there to basically make sure things didn’t get out of hand and would be hanging out in the underbrush observing the rally.

As they were leaving I said to them, “Yes, make sure keep the rowdies away.” He turned and replied, “Oh, I thought you guys were the rowdies.” I pointed to the protest sign leaning against the stage wall that had a large peace sign on it and said, “No, were the peaceful ones.”

By 12:15 PM the organizers felt it was time to begin and so Tamara Morneau approached the mic and after adjusting the sound the Rally commenced.

Tamara speaks.

“Good afternoon everyone and thank you for coming to show your support in these dire times. I’m happy to see you are willing to stand for the truth, to let it be known you are concerned for humanity as a whole. 

March marks a year since this pandemic was declared, which threw the world into a mad panic, created mass hysteria and instilled fear into the lives of many. People were glued to their tv’s waiting to hear how many deaths and cases were been reported and watched our country descend into lockdown.

When the pandemic began the military was deployed to assist in the long-term care homes and found seniors living in poor conditions and in poor health. The neglect was very apparent and continues to be an issue, as well as the suffering from not being to have proper contact with loved ones.

How many seniors died unnecessarily?

Choose to LIVE LIFE

People were forced to close their business doors putting their livelihoods at risk and unsure if they would be able to recover. Many were not able to and today are still contemplating whether they should close permanently which will inevitably cripple thousands if not millions of jobs. How many people took their lives because they didn’t know if they would survive the financial stress?

Over 200,000 elective surgeries, cancer screenings and other procedures were cancelled to free up beds for the flood of covid patients, which they eventually admitted never came to be. Some of these procedures could not be delayed as they were either lifesaving or meant for diagnosis. How many succumbed to their ailments due to the cancellations or are suffering because of the backlog?

The mental impact that the measures are having on our children is disturbing. The increase in teen suicide is alarming and needs to be addressed now, not later. This generation of children are going to be traumatized and will have to live their life with phobias and disorders and for what?

We have been waiting for the “curve” to flatten for months so we can get back to normal but the covid cases keep going up while the flu numbers suddenly fell off the face of the earth. 

Healthy individuals are getting tested when they have no signs or symptoms of illness and are coming back with positive test results. Researchers are saying the tests are so sensitive they may be indicating people are infected when they had the virus 70 days prior, which means, there are many false positives labeled as positive. 

The numbers we see today are skewed and are being used for psychological warfare on the masses through propaganda to keep people in a state of fear so they will willingly accept a highly experimental gene therapy jab. I won’t call it a vaccine as vaccines build immunity which this doesn’t.

Prior to 2019 studies had proven prolonged mask use was detrimental to people’s physical and psychological health as well as ineffective at preventing viral transmission. Social distancing presents dangers of increasing social rejection, growing impersonality, individualism and a loss of community. Social isolation increases risk of depression, anxiety, and suicide, all of which has become quite obvious throughout the world. 

Now the World Health Organization is saying they predict there will be another pandemic, that we will have to learn how to live with it because it’s not going away, even with the jab. 

We are putting our lives in the hands of governments and organizations who don’t care about us or our health. We are only profit to them. 

We need to stop blaming each other for what’s happening and start blaming the ones who created this chaos and take back our freedoms which are rightfully ours. 

Together we can do this.”

Following Tamara’s spirited address to the gathering her co-organizer Tami Viktil then approached the microphone to share her concerns.

Tami Viktil speaking to the crowd

“Good afternoon and thank you all for joining us. 

Today, across the world, people are gathering in their cities to speak out against the restrictions, also known as the “guidelines”.  We felt that it was important for the residents of Quesnel to be able to voice our concerns and I am grateful to be able to gather here today with all of you. 

Thank you for having the courage to stand up for our freedoms, our rights, and our way of life. Regardless of faith or religion we stand here today defending our sovereign rights under our Creator. 

Before I continue let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 5. I have been a resident of Quesnel for 18 years and have resided mostly in the Bouchie Lake area. I am raising my 2 eldest grandchildren who are 9 and 6 the youngest being recently diagnosed with autism. 

I became unemployed with the first required isolation period last April and have been homeschooling my grandchildren this last year. 

This is for a couple of reasons. The first, I was not comfortable with being locked out of the school with no immediate access to them without prior arrangements.

Second, I have been working with my grandson helping him with appropriate social interactions, and this goes against the new teachings of social distancing. 

This last year has been a challenge for all of us. As a mother and grandmother my concerns are for our future generations and what we allow to come to pass from all of this will determine our course. 

Regardless of media hype, stats show that this new variant of the coronavirus has no greater impact on our health or death rate then the flu seasons of the previous years. 

There are many theories and beliefs floating around as to the true origin of these entities that have declared war not only on humanity but on all living species and our earth’s resources, but the key point is that there is a war and it’s being waged against us.  There is a global agenda being played out and many choose not to accept or acknowledge this truth, but none the less it does affect all of us.

I want to speak a bit about the vaccine agenda. Nutrition is not taught as a means of health and prevention, but rather chemical toxins are promoted and are at the forefront of every health issue. 

The pharmaceutical industry is a billion-dollar business and depends on our disease and sickness to keep the profits flowing in. This agenda has gained momentum against our children and can be observed by the ever-increasing childhood vaccine schedule. 

Now, the agenda is extending to adults through the annual flu and covid-19 shots and of course with new variants will come new vaccines and increasing profits to those who care nothing about our health or wellbeing. 

We need to step up and take control back from the medical establishment by taking control of our health. We cannot afford to neglect the only system that provides us with health,  which is our wonderfully created immune system. Health cannot be injected, and we need to start focusing on prevention of diseases and sickness not the treatment of them.

Our children are considered by the medical establishment to be vulnerable to viruses, therefore the justification of the heavily toxic vaccine schedule. Yet through this all, the population has had a very low infection rate. The truth of the matter is, our children are not the high population group for death during any flu season, so this makes it relatively easy for the numbers to be shifted from influenza to covid-19.

A big concern of mine is the  idea and talk of health passports for those who have been vaccinated. (I do have a brochure available from VCC with information regards the passports as well as this new form of vaccine that is being administered) For those who refuse, travel restrictions would be placed upon them and their freedom of that right stripped. 

The vast majority of us have given up many of our fundamental freedoms and rights by complying with the extreme measures that have been imposed on us under the guise of protecting our health & safety and for the greater good. Measures such as public social distancing, masking, in home restrictions of family gatherings, cancelled adult and youth activities and the lockdown of our seniors in care facilities. 

This is a very difficult time for all of us. I do have to say though that the scenario that has been played out for us was well thought out. A health care crisis is the perfect opportunity to cause a financial crash, crippling businesses and causing massive unemployment. 

The threat of a deadly virus causes great fear and fear is a great controller for submission and compliance.  When people fear for their life they will resort to anger and irrational behaviour and logical thought processes become hindered. They will also do whatever or inject whatever is required of them to ensure a false sense of safety. 

I remind myself that the fear that others have about this virus is real for them and that kindness and thoughtfulness goes a long way. I also look for opportunities that hopefully will open the door for communication about this false narrative that is being played out. 

Division is the other objective goal, and we can see how this has been successful through social media and within our own friends and families that have become divided because of the differing views.  

People who are living under fear of this virus feel we are just as much as a threat to them as the virus itself. We become labelled and ridiculed but none the less we are standing up for our freedoms and rights and stand in proxy for those unable to do so at this time. 

Most people fail to understand the goals of the lockdowns and restrictions placed upon us and businesses by the governments. The first is for total break-down of the psyche, and second is for an economic and financial crash. 

This allows the rich to continually grow their wealth and the poor to descend deeper into poverty eradicating the middle class so those higher ascend to the wealthy while those on the bottom fall into poverty. 

This is to usher in Agenda 2030 where we become even more government dependent people and hand over our rights, privacy and possessions for safety and security.  A great reset of our economy and restructuring of our way of life as we know it.

We live in the age of technology where information is at our fingertips and ignorance is no longer an excuse. The agenda’s that are moving forward from our government leaders are not intended in our best interest and their motives are not for our well being. 

The election process is faulty and the political system itself needs to be replaced with one that holds our leaders accountable and represents the people and not corporations.

We are consenting to this agenda when we comply with these restrictions. We are created beings that require oxygen in the form of fresh air, social interactions within our communities and connection and affection from our family and friends.

We have done a great disservice to ourselves, our loved ones and to others by allowing fear to stop us from speaking out against these restrictions. 

It is disgraceful what our government has done to our children, those with special needs, mental health concerns, addictions, and our elderly population. 

Those who depend on us to be supportive, encouraging, and strong should not be sheltered from us.  We are to be an example. We will always be faced with some sort of threat but isolating ourselves from each other is not the solution. We all need to be participating in finding these solutions within our communities, towns, and cities.

Allowing the government to dictate to us whom we may spend time with and care for is unacceptable. These restrictions go against our human nature and against our biological makeup. 

We are to be caregivers of each other, the earth and to all its inhabitants. Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear have a divine purpose, and that purpose is a collective one – to do no harm and to love one another. 

Silence is consent, silence is compliance and silence is submission. What we really need right now is courage and unity.  Fear has no place where freedom reigns, so let’s continue to stand for our freedoms.” 

The third speaker at the Rally was Ann McKay who, like the two presenters before her, gave a passionate message to the audience.

Some attendants at the Rally brought along their Sign telling Canadians to WakeUp!

“Hello, my name is Ann McKay and I am speaking to you today as a concerned citizen.  I would like to begin by saying I am not a Covid denier, just a person who seeks truth and justice in a world full of deception and social injustice.

Covid-19 is affecting the way people relate to each other in a number of ways.

Social Phobia – Also known as social anxiety, this fear involves a broad range of situations in which people are afraid to interact with others due to fear of judgement and intolerance from others.   

Social anxiety was on the rise, particularly in young people, before Covid arrived.  This pandemic, the media and political response to it, has given social anxiety a hard shove into the red zone.  

The media has almost single-handedly managed to create a global phenomenon of “social atheism.”  Even the terminology is disturbing, “social distancing.”  The proper term is “physical distancing.” 

The human species is hard wired for connection with others.  It is not just psychological, it is biology.  For example, infants who are never picked up and held, will die.  This is how fundamental a need being held and hugged is to human development.  

The political response to the pandemic has created an atmosphere of fear and anger.  Suicides are on the rise because people are in fear leading to pain and despair.  

Covid fear has created a type of disease induced hypocrisy.  Vulnerable people are shut ins.  Family and friends are experiencing conflict, leading to a breakdown of relationships that are important to us.  Kids can play with their friends in a school yard, but not in their backyards.  We can go to a pub, unmasked but we cannot have close friends in our homes.  

By creating a state of mass fear and panic, it distracts us from the relevant facts.  When we are afraid, we do not question the information we are being exposed to.  By creating a state of emergency in our psyche, fear distracts us from the relevant facts on which we base our conscious decisions.  Again, there is biology here.  

Acute fear is a healthy thing that keeps us alive by stimulating the fight or flight response.  However, when people live in constant fear it has negative effects on our mental and physical health, and in some cases can be incapacitating.  

The main culprit here is mainstream media, and who owns media?  Corporations.  Who owns government?  The corporate robber barons.  Freedom of the press is for those who OWN it.  Control the narrative, control the masses.  Fear drives media ratings which means increased profit.  The corporate owners of such platforms (also known as the elite) know this very well and they are doing their best to capitalize on it.  

Propaganda helps feed our society’s obsession with the things that separate us, that make us different from one another, instead of what brings us together.  This is a fundamental element of “divide and conquer.”  If the elite keep the general public fighting about issues like race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, disease, and vaccines, they can easily distract us from what is really going on.  

In closing, I would like to acknowledge all the families who lost loved ones to Covid-19.  Unless we begin to seek truth for ourselves, Covid will have far reaching, devastating impacts.  The older I get, the more I realize time is a precious, non-renewable resource, thank you for giving me yours today.”

It should be noted that all of the speakers received warm rounds of applause for their speeches to the Rally and following the three main presenters Tamara then told the audience that the mic would be open if anyone else wished to address the gathering.

It wasn’t long before folks in the park started to come up and speak their minds on the many matters of concern to the group.

The first speaker was an elderly gentleman by the name of Albin Stroniarz who strode up to the mic and after surveying the audience began to speak about some of the fundamental issues that the world now faces because of the global crisis that’s been brought on by government, giant pharmaceutical companies and a media complicit in spreading all the disinformation and lies that people are hearing on the tv and radio and in the newspapers on a daily basis.

Albin told the people of his life before coming to Canada. He grew up in Communist Poland where he said life was not like it was here in Canada when he arrived as an immigrant many years ago.

Being in a position to be able to juxtapose the two political regimes that Albin had lived under he was well aware of how since the Covid Plandemic hit his new country things in Canada were rapidly deteriorating and more and more all of the draconian rules and regulations that he had left back in his former Communist homeland decades ago were now rearing their ugly heads right here in once free and democratic Canada.

He advised everyone to remain strong and true to their ideals and to speak out against all the injustices that were now becoming common place. Foremost was his message that it is WE THE PEOPLE who control Canada NOT the politicians and political lackeys and bureaucrats and that we need to STAND UP AND BE STRONG in the face of this growing totalitarian state and refuse to be intimidated by the so-called “Authorities”.

Speaking frankly and with strong emotion Albin’s message hit home a number of times and the audience responded with approving applause.

The next citizen to come up was Doug Sutton another local community member who had more to say about the nasties who’ve been responsible for all of the government restrictions and our loss of basic rights and freedoms.

He told the audience of the years that he’s spent studying those in international circles and who they are and what their hidden agenda is for ridding the planet of millions of elderly people and others who the “Elite” or “1%” would consider to be nothing but “useless eaters” as the term is so often employed for the poor and disenfranchised.

He made it clear that Bill Gates was no friend of humanity and that organizations like the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) were all in cahoots together and hell-bent on capitalizing on the suffering and death that the lockdowns and masks and fake vaccines were causing everywhere.

He touched on the our loss of Freedom of Speech and how those who know the real agenda are always being silenced and de-platformed by the social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and so on. Again, to the applause of the gathered citizens who recognized all that he was speaking about.

After Mr. Sutton spoke there were three more women who came up to the podium to relate their experiences to the audience. I must apologize to two of them as I was busy video-taping and wasn’t able to get their names. If anyone who may be reading this article should know them and could let me know I’ll edit their photos and add their identities to them.

The first to come up I refer to as the ‘Lady in Red’ for obvious reasons.

The Lady in Red, like all the other presenters, was very passionate about how she felt about everything that’s come down the track since the year 2020 descended upon the world like a dark and sinister cloud of EVIL.

She spoke about her frustrations with the general public and how trying to explain the true agenda of governments and big pharma was so difficult because the people had been brainwashed all their lives to the point where now, when danger was present everywhere, so many couldn’t understand what was going on and only wanted to comply with all the rules and regulations in the vain hope that it would all soon pass like some horrible nightmare and life would get back to normal again.

Rather than see what was going on right in front of their eyes the Lady in Red said the propaganda was instilling them with so much fear that those who were speaking the truth were now being considered as dangerous to their own health and security as the mysterious virus itself.

She definitely made her points and the audience was appreciative of her determination and forthrightness and let it be known.

Following the Lady in Red was the second to last speaker Eva Goertz who had driven up with her hubby from 100 Mile House to attend the event.

Eva thanked everybody for showing up and thanked the Organizers for making the event happen and was pleased to be attending.

She didn’t talk for long but told the audience of some of her experiences from the past when she was living in East Germany prior to coming to Canada and what it was like living under a soviet communist state regime where all your movements are watched and you don’t have the freedoms that Canadians have enjoyed all their lives. Her message of course was that if Canada doesn’t stand up and speak out and do something about all the arbitrary rules and regulations and mandates that are being imposed on them that it won’t be long before Canada will resemble that former Orwellian state.

She also told a story about a recent event that took place in Vancouver, B.C. at a home for the elderly. A family relation who was working there told her that one evening (presumably after the residents had been ‘vaccinated’) that 20 human beings died in one single night! Coincidence? A freak occurrence? Highly unlikely given all the horror stories that are now emerging around the world as the WHO and the governments are going full bore with their attempts to ‘vaccinate’ anyone they can lay their greedy, clammy hands on.

The audience was appreciative of Eva’s short talk and thanked her with their applause.

The last person to wend their way up on stage was another woman whose name, at this time, is unknown. I refer to her as the Unknown Warrior Woman as she spoke with a strong determined voice while shared her personal battles with the audience.

The speaker related to the audience her recent experience at having lost her son due to a medical condition. A part of that sad story was the whole issue of the Health Authorities and governments mandating unreasonable, insane policies that prohibit loved ones and family members from attending hospitals and private facilities where their family members are dying or living alone so long that they soon will be giving up hope of ever seeing their families and most likely will become depressed to the point where their will to live will finally give out.

She stressed the fact again and again that people must resist these types of Machiavellian measures by health authorities and that the lockdowns and social distancing MUST END!

SUMMING UP

By 1:45 PM the Rally was over and people began to slowly disperse. The event had taken place without any problems and the RCMP packed up their surveillance equipment and slipped silently away. No fines or tickets were given to the Organizers and hopefully none will be given out at a later date.

Before the crowd left Organizer Tamara Morneau told everyone that there would be another Rally in the near future likely within a month or so. The response to her declaration was positive and she received a loud applause from those in attendance.

I want to conclude this rather protracted story by stating my own thoughts on the event.

After a year of lockdowns and masks and now the increase in fake vaccines for “the people” plus thousands upon thousands of comments and stories and memes on social media regarding this massive HOAX we are still seeing strong resistance from both our local municipal government, our local media, i.e. the Quesnel Cariboo Observer and next to no resistance from our provincial MLA Coralee Oakes or our federal Member of Parliament Todd Doherty who represents the Conservative Party to openly addressing these issues and debating them both in the government houses and the media.

Denial appears to be the name of game when it comes to recognizing that the whole world is resisting all of these Orwellian measures to force upon the human race untested poisonous ‘vaccines’ and social restrictions and business inhibitors that are destroying lives and the basic foundations upon which our lives, our liberties and our freedom of speech are based.

We must unite and build the resistance movement and continue to SPEAK OUT! One good way of helping out would be to share this story with as many others as you can.

In the words of one man who resisted the Evil that now oppresses us, “Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.”

If You Never Made It to Police State East Germany Under the STASI or North Korea, Welcome to the Medico-Stalinist Tyranny of Ontario: Gatherings in YOUR Home Banned; Churches & Most Businesses Closed. The “Reopening Ontario Act” is a scam — It’s About Shutting it Down!

If You Never Made It to Police State East Germany Under the STASI or North Korea, Welcome to the Medico-Stalinist Tyranny of Ontario: Gatherings in YOUR Home Banned; Churches & Most Businesses Closed

Here are the fines people could face for violating Ontario’s coronavirus shutdown laws Ontario entered a provincewide shutdown on Saturday in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19. It’s the second lockdown for the province since the pandemic began, with the first widespread measures having been in place during the spring. targeting social gatherings and businesses are among measures implemented as part of the shutdown.

A list of the restrictions currently enforceable throughout Ontario by provincial law are detailed under this section of Reopening Ontario Act, a spokesperson from the solicitor general’s office said. Among them are:

A ban on indoor social gatherings with anyone outside of your household. There is an exception for a person who lives alone and visits a second household.

A ban on outdoor social gatherings of more than 10 people.

The closure or limitation on operations of some businesses, including the closure of personal care services, limitation on retail sales, and restricting restaurants and bars to take-out, delivery, or drive-thru services only.

The restrictions are expected to be locally adjusted as regions move out of lockdown next month and the province moves back to its colour-coded response framework.

Depending on the violation of an emergency order and the discretion of an officer who observes an offence, the type of charge laid as well as the resulting fine can vary.

In general, anyone who violates an emergency order could face a fine of $750, while a person who obstructs someone exercising power or performing a duty in accordance with an order could face a fine of $1,000. Current Time 0:32/Duration 9:060Trudeau looks back on 2020: ‘Lots of things we learned that we could have done differently

However, a person who violates an emergency order could also be issued a summons in which the court would determine a penalty upon conviction, that could include a fine of up to $100,000 and a year in jail.

The province has also set up a minimum $10,000 fine for hosts or organizers of parties in violation of gathering laws.

Meanwhile, corporations which violate an emergency order could face a fine up to $10,000,000 upon conviction.

Fines could be increased even higher “by an amount equal to the financial benefit that was acquired.”

It’s important to note that municipalities may also impose additional restrictions beyond those implemented by the province, which could include additional fines.

Adamson BBQ Legal Defence Fund Reaches $310,209 — Organizer Refuses Leftists’ Ploy of Dividing & Criticizing Supporters & Resists Censors’ Efforts to Pressure GoFundMe to Shut Down These Freedom Fighters

Good morning folks,

Well, here we are at $303,000!

Thank you sincerely for all that you have done to make this effort a success.

Now, over the past days, I have been asked to comment on various rumours and perceived controversies.

Well, I won’t do it.

From the beginning I have asked you to fund the fight to challenge asymmetric COVID regulations in the courts.

I have asked you to do that by contributing to the Adamson BBQ Legal Defence Fund.

And you have all responded in kind.

Today I want to stand by that ask.

And thank all of you for your extremely generous support, with the utmost sincerity.

During my career, I have found myself outside the good graces of the compact majority.

Not often, but enough for it to matter.

It is the nature of having a successful career in politics and policy. Well, any successful career really.

I have been the subject of rumours, media scrutiny and even legal claims that were, at the end of the day, exposed as utter bullshit and were withdrawn without prejudice.

But not before they took their toll on my interpersonal relationships with my children, my spouse, my friends, my colleagues and my clients.

And I will never use any platform to do that to another man.

Nor will I use any platform to perpetuate those claims.

Why? Because at the end of the day, they exist to weaken our resolve and encourage us to just give up.

Public relations is war. Right now, we are engaged in a war with the most powerful adversary there is— government.

This is an institution with the power to use our own money against us.

So today I want to express to you all that I stand by Adam in his fight for the fair treatment of small business.

Really, if we do not have the courage to stand by our convictions when the going gets tough, then we have no business in the fight.

I will be ceasing the campaign within the next week.

Before I do, I would really love for us to hit that $350,000 target.

This is going to be a tough battle and I would hate to see it stall out for lack of resources.

For those of you, like me, whose resolve has only been strengthened by the recent petition campaign to “defund” our fight, I hope you will give one last time.

If each of us who receives this update contributed just $7 today, we would reach our goal.

Are you with me? Do you #standbyadam?

More Medico-Stalinism: Prince Albert Pastor Fined $14,000 for Singing

Donte  
, Pastor Vern Temple does what other people won’t do. He helps the lowest of the low — homeless people, hungry people. He’s up in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, so a lot of his work is with people from the nearby Indian band.  It’s one of the poorest churches I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen the churches in Iraq that ISIS torched. But the local mayor, a bully named Greg Dionne, just can’t stand the church. He’s always after it for something. And he finally found a way to try and bring it down — a ludicrous $14,000 fine for singing. I’m serious. For singing in a church. Here, watch Pastor Vern tell you himself:

No-one can afford a $14,000 fine. Certainly not one of the poorest churches in Canada, one that already spends every dollar it has to feed the poor and house the homeless. Imagine the moral compass of a mayor who permits a casino to stay open during the pandemic, but cracks down on a church for doing the same. Pastor Vern and his congregants can’t afford the fine. They can’t afford a lawyer, either. He’s between a rock and a hard place.

But that’s where we come in — you and me. Rebel News has hired a great lawyer for Pastor Vern — a freedom-fighting civil liberties lawyer named Sarah Miller. I almost feel bad for that bully mayor. He’s not going to know what hit him! We’re not going to pay the fine. We’re going to fight the fine.

And if you want to support our fight, go to www.FightTheFines.com and chip in to help us crowdfund this top-notch lawyer. That’s where you can check out our other cases, too! If you know someone who needs a lawyer to fight a pandemic fine, tell them to go to our site and fill out the form — we’ll try to have a lawyer reach out and help them. And if you don’t know someone who needs help, maybe you can be someone who gives it by joining our crowdfunding campaign and pitching in a few dollars. On behalf of Pastor Vern — thanks.

Yours truly,

Sheila Gunn Reid
Chief Reporter,

Rebel News P.S. Have you noticed how the lockdown bullies seem to be picking on Christian churches? Not on casinos, liquor stores, cannabis stores, or even Wal-marts and Costcos. They’re picking on churches. In this case, they’ve issued the largest fine in Canada — a whopping $14,000. Time to fight back!
