    And today we have this: https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/502890-fauci-why-the-public-wasnt-told-to-wear-masks

    Fauci now says that he lied to the public when he told them that masks were not effective, and that there was no need to wear them.

    If the man was willing to lie to the public before, what integrity does he have left? Why should he ever be considered to be credible in the future?

    The vax cabal wanted the public ‘protected’ from herd immunity. Methinks.

      There is no one vast cabal.
      Rather, there are many groups of individuals with their own agenda’s of Self Interest. These groups have always existed and will always exist. They are not really the problem. Sometimes their agenda’s are good.
      How would Gates and his wife make money through philanthropy by vaccinating the world if everyone had acquired natural immunity?
      The problem is not Groups of Individuals with evil intentions for profit and control, rather, the Structure they use to achieve their goals.
      With real Term Limits, One Term and that is it, this type of Government Corruption would be VASTLY reduced.

    “Journalism: a profession whose business it is to explain to others what it personally does not understand.” – Alfred Harmsworth, founder of the Daily Mail

    “If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.” – Mark Twain

  4. Ann says:

    Government Power is the Legal Right To Initiate Violent Force and Engage In Coercion. This kind of Power is Absolute and Corrupts Absolutely no matter how good intention one is. History has a successful Model for a Republic in Genoa which lasted for 700 years with prosperity for all classes due to the Term Limits given to their rulers. One Term and that is it.
    Another solution we must discuss is Governments right to borrow and pay for it with the 16th amendment which is a legal form of slavery. They both must be abolished to return the Government to the People.

    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    And yet he seemed pretty fond of slavery at the time. And of a pretty slave too.

    • Keith Alan Brandt says:

      Both of your assertions are not accurate and have thus confirmed Mark Twain’s above observation regarding those who read the newspaper.

    “Justice Dept Announces Recommendations for Reform of Big Tech Platform Immunity, Section 230…”
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/06/17/justice-dept-announces-recommendations-for-reform-of-big-tech-platform-immunity-section-230/

    “The DOJ needs congress to take action, modify the law, and update the outdated immunity for online platforms under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996.”

    I think it will happen when pigs fly even if Republicans somehow hold majorities in both houses and Trump wins reelection. Too many on the payroll.

    • Jeff L. says:

      The revocation of Section 230 immunity (the last remnant of COPA) is what protects social media companies and bloggers alike from being responsible for comments and content posted on their sites. This is not something that we want to get rid of and it is not the solution to the “censorship” issue.

    • Gamecock says:

      FCC has signaled opposition. A simple and straight forward solution is available. Government won’t act.

  7. Gator says:

    Is it any wonder that the left is working to trash Jefferson’s legacy? Never mind that it was his words and actions that lead to the 13th amendment.
