Gun permits based on political views. It’s on the horizon for many Americans.

That’s because left-wingers in California, a trend-setting state, have cooked up a new way to stop Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, moderates, and anyone else who refuses to toe the politically correct line from defending themselves from the crime wave that their policies have unleashed on America.

The day after the Supreme Court recognized the constitutional right of Americans to carry guns in public for self-defense, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, a Democrat, began pressing officials across the state to deny public-carry gun licenses to people deemed to harbor feelings of “hatred and racism.”

Bonta, for what it’s worth, is in trouble because his office leaked the names and addresses of every single concealed carry permit holder in California. Some now fear for their lives thanks to his incompetence.

The high court ruling in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, came down June 23. It held that part of New York state’s concealed carry gun permitting system was unconstitutional because it only authorized public-carry licenses “when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense.” The landmark 6-3 decision (pdf), written by Justice Clarence Thomas, recognized a constitutional right to carry guns in public for self-defense for the first time in the nation’s history.

Of course, early gun control laws in America were in some cases motivated by racism. The “Black Codes” adopted in southern states prevented blacks from keeping and bearing arms.

As High Country News reported last year, in California a 1923 law blocked non-citizens from having concealable firearms. Because of the federal Chinese Exclusion Act, many Chinese people in the state could not own guns because they could not become citizens. A San Francisco Chronicle article from back then celebrated the disarming of Chinese and Latino residents.

“Where the officials have the discretion in terms of gun licensing, there’s a very clear historic pattern of discrimination,” the article quoted Robert Cottrol, a history professor at George Washington University, saying.

After the Supreme Court spoke, Bonta promptly pulled a bait-and-switch, following Bruen by dropping the state’s “good cause” requirement but beefing up California’s “good moral character” requirement. In his June 24 “legal alert” (pdf) to gun permit issuers, he said that to assess whether an applicant had “good moral character” authorities could rely on the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department policy, which states:

“Legal judgments of good moral character can include consideration of honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, reliability, respect for the law, integrity, candor, discretion, observance of fiduciary duty, respect for the rights of others, absence of hatred and racism, fiscal stability, profession-specific criteria such as pledging to honor the Constitution and uphold the law, and the absence of criminal conviction.” [italics added]

Bonta also reminded the permit issuers that they “may search publicly available information, including social media accounts, in assessing the applicant’s character.”

Although some of the “good moral character” criteria seem straightforward, some seem unfair.

The requirement for “fiscal stability” seems likely to deprive poor people living in dangerous neighborhoods and those with bad credit ratings from getting a carry permit, leaving them at the mercy of violent illegal gun-toting criminals.

But the phrase “absence of hatred and racism” really, really, really raises red flags.

What exactly are “hatred and racism” in the eyes of Left Coast public safety bureaucrats?

The answer seems to be: anything a woke government official says it is.

Racism, of course, is an infinitely malleable concept in the hands of people who despise America and all it stands for.

To leftists, opposition to critical race theory, Islamism, affirmative action, open borders, and tax cuts are some of the more obvious current examples of racism. Respecting the American flag, the Constitution, the police and law and order, capitalism, tradition, and Israel are also seen as evidence of racism. And liking Donald Trump and Republicans is, at the moment, the worst kind of racism there is, according to leftists.

This is not, by the way, an exhaustive agglomeration of hallucinated racism and with the continuing popularity of inventive woke gurus like Ibram X. Kendi the list grows longer every day.

And what about hatred?

By hatred, leftists are really referring to ideas they regard as hateful because they run counter to the radical worldview. In other words, wrongthink.

“Hatred,” though, is a difficult word to make money off of. Like the fundraising-obsessed charlatans at the Southern Poverty Law Center, radicals prefer the shorter, more marketable word “hate.”

They don’t care that actual, plain old dictionary definition hate, and the expression of it, “hate speech,” an admittedly nebulous concept, is entirely lawful.

Leftists will adamantly deny it until they’re Democrat-blue in the face, but hate speech is protected by the Constitution, as the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) reminds us.

Americans are allowed to express anger and hostility. Nothing in the Bill of Rights requires everyone to think happy thoughts and say nice things.

“Speech by adults as free citizens does not lose First Amendment protection because it is considered hateful. This is because hate speech in and of itself is protected speech, particularly when spoken by adults on their own time,” according to a February FIRE report.

The only categories of speech that aren’t protected by the First Amendment are instances of “incitement to imminent lawless action,” “speech that threatens serious bodily harm,” and “speech that causes an immediate breach of the peace,” the so-called fighting words exception.

Worryingly, eradicating “hate” –which, like racism nowadays, is in the eye of the beholder— is an official priority for Bonta.

Hate is everywhere in California, he claimed on June 28.

“The pandemic gave way to an epidemic of hate. We saw the bigoted words of our former president turn a trickle of hate into a flood that remains with us,” Bonta said.

In May of last year, he created a new “Racial Justice Bureau” within the California Department of Justice. His press release at the time said the new office will “help tackle some of California’s most pressing racial and social justice issues head-on.”

The bureau is tasked with doing a whole bunch of things that have nothing to do with law enforcement.

Among other things, it will monitor “the insidious effects of white supremacy and hate organizations on our society” and assist a task force in studying and developing “reparation proposals for African Americans.”

California already gives grants to left-wing community organizations to fight “hate,” which leads to predictable results.

On March 28, the state announced grants to several groups including Chinese for Affirmative Action, Chinese Progressive Association, and UCLA’s Labor Center. On June 20 it awarded a little over $2.6 million to one of America’s most prominent real-life hate groups, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a subversive, anti-Semitic organization that leftists reflexively defend because they abhor Greco-Roman-Judeo-Christian Western Civilization.

Returning to the good moral character provision, UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh wrote in a Reason column that he was disturbed at Bonta’s suggestion “that people who hold certain ideological viewpoints should be disqualified.”

Bonta giving issuing authorities a green light to sift through applicants’ social media accounts in search of evidence of their character “strikes me as clearly unconstitutional under the First Amendment, even apart from the Second Amendment.”

This writer recently interviewed C.D. “Chuck” Michel of the law firm Michel and Associates about Bonta’s mischief-making.

Michel is president of the California Rifle and Pistol Association and the Second Amendment Law Center. Michel also wrote California Gun Laws: A Guide to State and Federal Firearm Regulations, a 532-page vade mecum that is in its ninth edition.

“The problem with the good moral character policy that the attorney general seems to be encouraging is that it’s completely subjective and would allow a city to evaluate an applicant based on their politics, not on whether they’re a threat or not or whether they’re actually some kind of a bad character,” Michel said.

“So we’re deeply concerned that that kind of subjective, politicized criteria creeps into this process. It’s something that the Supreme Court warned against, and it’s something that will definitely bring legal action if cities or counties try and adopt something like that.”

“Trying to evaluate somebody’s good moral character by the comments that they make, or the articles—maybe they don’t even say anything—they may just curate, pass along, share” on social media, is dangerous, the lawyer said.

“And you’re going to be judged for that … by someone who’s politically inclined, perhaps, to try and find a way not to issue permits,” he said.

“So they’re looking for things that they can use as an excuse to not issue a permit—that’s what the subtext of Bonta’s alert really is.”

“This is what we’re calling the blue resistance,” he said. It is part of California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) strategy “to minimize the real effect of the Supreme Court ruling and try and get around it by setting up all these other types of roadblocks. Basically, red tape the right to death.”

Michel made it clear that he is “100 percent against hate speech and racism, but anything can be called hate speech, and anything can be labeled racism these days, so I’m very nervous about a policy that does some kind of a blanket [approach].”

“Anybody can define those terms in a way that condemns a broad swath of society that in my view is neither hateful [nor] racist.”

Interestingly, a handful of left-wingers say that the good moral character provision in other laws is itself racist. In a 2017 piece at Sociology In Focus, Siena College sociology professor Beverly Yuen Thompson applied a disparate-impact-like analysis, writing, “A modern example of structural racism can be found in the ‘good moral character’ clause that bars many people of color from the legal marijuana industry.”

“In legal marijuana states, their laws often include a ‘good moral character’ clause, requiring prospective owners and employees, to submit to a criminal background check. Marijuana legalization laws often ban workers with drug convictions from working in the industry, especially in medical marijuana states.” In states with the clause, “these prior convictions disproportionately prevent people of color from joining the newly legal marijuana economy.”

This perspective is an outlier among leftists, and their ideas about so-called structural racism in America are absurd, but hey, it’s something. Maybe an ACLU attorney somewhere agrees and this will in some small way help the cause of California gun-permit applicants trying to avail themselves of their Second Amendment rights.

The real issue here is whether gun permit-issuing authorities in California can be trusted to apply the good moral character provision in a politically-neutral, ideologically-neutral way in light of Bonta’s commitment to using fuzzy, social-justice criteria in the gun-licensing process.

Don’t bet your life on it.

Jill Breaks Out the Violin for Joe: ‘He Had So Many Hopes’


EXCERPT FROM: https://www.raymondibrahim.com/2016/09/04/confronting-islam-pope-francis-vs-saint-francis/:

"When Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio became the new Catholic pope in 2013, he chose the name Francis to indicate that his pontificate would be one of mercy and compassion for the poor and needy—for such is the reputation of his eponym, Saint Francis of Assisi: “the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation,” explained Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, as to why he chose that name."




Lamentations 3:4

He has made my skin and my flesh grow old and has broken my bones.

Lamentations 1:13

From on high he sent fire, sent it down into my bones. He spread a net for my feet and turned me back. He made me desolate, faint all the day long."

Lamentations 1:16

"This is why I weep and my eyes overflow with tears. No one is near to comfort me, no one to restore my spirit. My children are destitute because the enemy has prevailed."

Lamentations 3:14

"I became the laughingstock of all my people; they mock me in song all day long."

Jill and Joe Biden

Gas prices have gone through the roof and are promising to get worse. The President of the United States, deeply beholden to the green Left, steadfastly refuses to reverse the extensive damage he has done to the domestic oil industry and instead goes hat in hand to Saudi Arabia to plead with the leaders of the state he once called a “pariah” to lower oil prices. They refuse. The president’s administration has mounted disquieting initiatives to restrict the freedom of speech and brand law-abiding Americans as terrorists while sending billions to Ukraine in the teeth of the economic suffering of the folks at home. After the president and his team catastrophically botched the withdrawal from Afghanistan, America is substantially weakened on the world stage, and her enemies are emboldened.

In the midst of all this and more, the first lady of the United States has a message of hope and encouragement for embattled Americans: pity poor Joe.

That’s right — we err by giving the putative president a 33% approval rating (which is surprising only in raising the question of how a third of the population could actually still support this abysmally failed president). Jill Biden — sorry, that’s Doctor Jill Biden to us plebeians — on Saturday asserted that instead, we should look upon her corrupt, dishonest kleptocrat of a husband as a tragic figure. He is a man who came into the White House full of New-Frontier idealism, ready to “transform” this nation as he had promised to do. But sadly, he was confronted with problems that no one, no one at all anywhere in this green and pleasant land, could possibly ever have anticipated. And now our rosy-cheeked idealist’s plans lie in ruins, his starry-eyed hopes dashed, the beautiful future he worked so tirelessly to guarantee for all of us now beset by dark clouds, none of which is his doing. Ah, it brings a tear to the eye. Poor Joe!

According to CNN, ol’ Doc Jill articulated her “frustration about the stalled progress of President Joe Biden’s tenure in the White House during a private Democratic National Committee fundraiser” in Nantucket. She claimed that Old Joe “has been consistently challenged by unanticipated crises while in office.” Joe, says his better and more sentient half, “had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment.” You know, like “Putin’s price hike” and all the rest of Joe’s malarkey.

As far as Jill was concerned, the fix we’re in is the fault of everyone except her honest, quick-witted, capable husband, who has just had a run of bad luck. “He’s just had so many things thrown his way. Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still, we didn’t believe it,” she said. “The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.”

Jill, uh, Doctor Jill, did not address the likelihood that Putin invaded Ukraine because he saw with the withdrawal from Afghanistan that America’s political and military leadership was weak, distracted with wokeness, and both unable and unwilling to challenge him in any significant way. And the bits about gun violence and Roe are just Leftist talking points. Jill doesn’t seem to have mentioned skyrocketing gas prices or galloping inflation at all, much less sharply rising crime rates in Democrat-run cities. Maybe she knew that blaming Putin for it all wouldn’t fly, even in Nantucket.

Jill claimed that she herself had also been diverted from her own idealistic plans by all these crises that no one could possibly have anticipated or provided for: “I was saying to myself, ‘Okay, I was second lady. I worked on community colleges. I worked on military families. I’ve worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of focus. But then when we got [in the White House], I had to be, with all that was happening, the first lady of the moment.”

And so she knows that the Democrats unless they pull a few tricks out of their sleeve, are in for a bruising in November: “I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard, they stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder.” Yeah, Republicans, they stick together. Just ask Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Liz Cheney, Susan Collins, Adam Kinzinger, and all the rest.

Ultimately, however, for all of Jill’s self-pity and nonsense, she did convey one genuinely encouraging point: Old Joe hasn’t been able to do everything he wanted to do. For all the damage he has done to the nation, it could have been much, much worse.

(Natural News) There is no longer “safety in numbers,” especially when it comes to about 200 million Americans taking the advice and guidance of the US government and regulatory agencies. Anyone who takes the advice of the FDA and CDC is venturing down a rabbit hole of dangerous, experimental medications and pesticide-laden, processed GMO food, all of which fuels the chronic sick care industry of America. To rub salt in that ‘long term’ wound, the economy is quickly crashing and burning (by design), causing consumers and patients to spend even more of the quickly-dwindling money they have left. Misinformation is at an all-time high, and it’s mostly thanks to the FDA, the CDC, and the highly corrupt Biden Regime. Let’s take a closer look.

Apocalyptic Problems: Food shortages, deadly COVID jabs, skyrocketing inflation, mass-disinformation

The combination of major issues Americans face today is leading to mass casualties and apocalyptic situations. None of these problems are accidental or caused by natural forces, but rather are well-planned and executed by corrupt corporations, government agencies, and of course, Big Pharma.

Chronic inflammation, for example, has always been a problem for the majority of Americans who eat processed food daily, drink tap water, take prescription drugs, and get every vaccine the CDC recommends. Now, the Fauci Flu clot shots are clogging the vascular system of hundreds of millions of ‘patients’ with spike proteins that exacerbate health problems to the fullest extent.

Now the FDA and CDC are pushing these dangerous, experimental gene therapy injections for children, babies, and pregnant women alike. This will surely skyrocket the ‘sudden death syndrome’ that’s sweeping the nation, and the ‘spontaneous abortions’ that are supposedly unexplainable by doctors.

The majority of Americans are still falling for the age-old, lying mantra about vaccines that they are “safe and effective,” when they are actually very dangerous and ineffective.

Supply chain issues are all by design, thanks to COVID-19 lockdowns, factory shutdowns, fires, explosions, and employee firings over non-compliance with illegal vaccine mandates. This is driving the cost of everything through the roof, and most families can barely afford their energy bills, mortgage, rent, food, medicine, fuel, and other basic necessities and supplies.

America’s food and fuel production infrastructure is being dismantled purposely by the evil Biden Regime

Life and living is hard enough without the government purposely wrecking every working system around. Worried about the pandemic? Don’t get “vaccinated” with protein prions that clog your blood and cleansing organs. Tough to pay the bills because taxes are high and pay is low? Inflation is only worsening by the day, so there’s no relief there. Trying to eat healthy to boost your immune system? Good luck. The US government is trying to transition everyone to eating only lab-concocted food that causes cancer, so no help there. Trying to run a business so you can be your own boss and retire early? The Biden Regime is trying to bankrupt all private businesses using COVID-19 as an excuse while choking out the supply chain and printing trillions of dollars to wreck the economy. No help there. In fact, it’s just the opposite – pure decimation of every working system.

Top 7 ways Biden Regime is decimating America and all Americans

#1. Pushing toxic, blood-clotting, spike protein injections for everyone, including babies

#2. Ending all domestic fossil fuel production

#3. Burning and exploding food factories and fertilizer plants

#4. Blocking and suffocating the supply chain in order to usher in lab-made food

#5. Printing and laundering trillions of dollars that drive inflation through the roof

#6. Censoring all information that protects the health and safety of Americans

#7. Fostering the biggest misinformation campaign ever about war and vaccines

Border Agents Handle 200K-plus Illegals in June. Traitor Joe Biden Releases Almost 80K

Border Agents Handle 200K-plus Illegals in June. Traitor Joe Biden Releases Almost 80K


SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/border-agents-handle-200k-plus-illegals-in-june-traitor-joe-biden-releases-almost-80k/;

The Biden administration’s plans for The Great Replacement moved forward again in June, the latest data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection show.

Border agents handled more than 200,000 illegals at the nation’s southwest frontier, the fourth consecutive month with a number approaching a quarter million. The administration continued violating federal law by releasing more than 70,000 to colonize the American heartland.

The latest monthly total brings the number for the fiscal year, which ends September 30, to more than 1.7 million. Total released: Almost 700,000.

June’s Numbers

The open subversion of American law is almost too shocking to believe, both in the number of illegals Biden permits to cross the border, and in the number he releases in the hope of overwhelming the country with impoverished “migrants” who will vote for Democrats.

Agents stopped 207,416 illegals in June, 191,898 of whom tried to jump the border. For the fiscal year, which began October 1, the total is 1,746,119.

That number exceeds the population of every major city in the country except New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston. The population of Phoenix is 1.62 million.

With a quarter left in fiscal 2022, border agents have already handled more illegals than all of last year, 1,734,686.

If the rate continues — about 194,000 per month — agents will handle another 582,00 illegals by September 30. That will make the total for the year 2.33 million, a 33.5-percent increase from last year.

And again, June became the fourth straight month that encounters at the border surpassed 200,000. The total since March 1 is 906,453.

Biden released 79,652 illegals, 40 percent of the total encountered. That figure is found in monthly data a federal court requires the administration to provide.

Those numbers are telling as well, and show just how severe a problem Biden’s impeachable violation of federal law has become.

Since the beginning of the fiscal year, he has released 691,775 illegals, and well more than one million since he took office.

Monthly Releases:

  • June: 79,652
  • May: 95,318
  • April: 117,989
  • March: 80,116
  • February: 55,043
  • January: 62,573
  • December: 74,799
  • November: 83,725
  • October: 42,560

If Biden releases 40 percent of the projected 2.33 million illegals whom agents will handle by September 30, Americans will have to deal with 932,000. Few, if any, will ever be deported, and instead, where they establish colonies, will become a crushing financial burden on state and local taxpayers, as well as a major crime problem.

Texas Hardest Hit

Texas is suffering the most from Biden’s border treason. Agents in the Del Rio and Rio Grande Valley border sectors handled 128,040 illegals who were caught jumping the border. That’s 66.7 percent of the total.

  • Del Rio: 45,225
  • Rio Grande Valley: 44,667
  • El Paso: 26,239
  • Laredo: 9,884
  • Big Bend: 2,025


The obvious question is whether Republicans if they retake Capitol Hill, will impeach Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for willfully violating multiple provisions of U.S. immigration law.

As The New American reported in April, citing Andrew Arthur of the Center for Immigration Studies, the Secure Fence Act of 2006 requires Mayorkas to establish “operational control” of the border. The unindicted Cuban visa fraudster has done the opposite and has instead permitted illegals to continue crossing by inviting them into the country. As well, with Biden’s permission, he is releasing illegals instead of detaining them, as, again, the law requires. Mayorkas has repeatedly and openly confessed to not enforcing those laws. He could also be found guilty of “bringing in and harboring” illegals.

Though hard-right conservatives want to impeach Biden, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate GOP chieftain Mitch McConnell have said that won’t happen.

To reverse Biden’s Great Replacement policy, impeaching Biden and even Mayorkas won’t be enough. Harris, who would succeed Biden, must be removed as well, which would position a GOP House Speaker to assume the presidency.

Even then, the mass deportation of the illegal-alien colonists Biden has released is unlikely. No Republican would have the courage to do it.

Scientists Leaving CDC, FDA, NIH Due to “Bad Science,” Political Pressure


SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/scientists-leaving-cdc-fda-nih-due-to-bad-science-political-pressure-from-biden/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

America’s top healthcare agencies are facing an alarming rate of resignations. “Low morale” and “bad science” practiced by the agencies and caused by the political pressure from the Biden administration are the primary factors that make even top-level employees call it quits.

Last week, Dr. Marty Makary, a top public-health expert at Johns Hopkins University and a medical advisor to Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin; and Dr. Tracy Beth Høeg, an epidemiologist affiliated with the Florida Department of Health, posted an article in which they quoted doctors and scientists at the top levels of the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on their dreadful work conditions. The latter said they felt “variously frustrated, exasperated, and alarmed about the direction of the agencies to which they have devoted their careers.”

The article reads,

“It’s like a horror movie I’m being forced to watch and I can’t close my eyes,” one senior FDA official lamented. “People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.”

Support for masking in schools, school closures, and the authorization of experimental gene therapeutics against Covid (aka “vaccines”) for children four and under were among the major decisions made by the federal agencies that undermined personnel’s morale.

From the very onset of the pandemic, all of the agencies ostensibly responsible for sound healthcare policies have been mired in controversy for inconsistent and confusing messaging and for decision-making that was at odds with the available science. The high-profile employees of the agencies say the root cause is that politics is driving science, and not the other way around.

The result of the pressure is what Makary and Høeg call “bad science,” when the top decision-makers deliberately “use weak or flawed data to make critically important public health decisions.”

Per the article,

“There’s been a large amount of turnover. Morale is low,” one high level official at the CDC told us. “Things have become so political, so what are we there for?” Another CDC scientist told us: “I used to be proud to tell people I work at the CDC. Now I’m embarrassed.”

This is the agency whose goal is to “increase the health security of our nation” by “conducting critical science and providing health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats.” In the end, it is the CDC that makes public health recommendations based on research done internally and by its sister agencies, the FDA and the NIH.

Those two are experiencing a state of affairs that is not much better.

At the NIH, doctors and scientists complain to us about low morale and lower staffing: The NIH’s Vaccine Research Center has had many of its senior scientists leave over the last year, including the director, deputy director and chief medical officer. “They have no leadership right now. Suddenly there’s an enormous number of jobs opening up at the highest-level positions,” one NIH scientist told us.

The NIH is responsible for biomedical and public health research and works to find the best ways to apply the findings “to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability.”

Then, there’s the FDA, which is presumably working to ensure the safety of medical products — including vaccines — and food to “protect public health.”

Discussing the FDA’s decision to recommend the Moderna and Pfizer Covid shots for young children and the overall detrimental impact of the botched pandemic policies supported by the FDA that hurt children, one official told the authors, “I can’t tell you how many people at the FDA have told me, ‘I don’t like any of this, but I just need to make it to my retirement.’”

Yet many chose to leave rather than be a part of the travesty, with the decision to vaccinate all American children being the last straw. They say that the data provided by Pfizer, for example, was “extremely weak” and “inconclusive,”

Referring to Pfizer’s vaccine efficacy in healthy young children, one high-level CDC official — whose expertise is in the evaluation of clinical data — joked: “You can inject them with it or squirt it in their face, and you’ll get the same benefit.”

Moderna’s efficacy data was just as bad, added Makary and Høeg.

If the shots were simply ineffective, that would only be a part of the issue. Yet the shots are not just associated with a stunning number of adverse events and deaths in children, they irreparably disrupt the natural development of their innate immune systems. When that ultimate defense mechanism is undermined, any infectious disease may kill children. The constant reinfection of vaccinated people, including little ones, is also associated with an increased risk of cancer, as explained to The New American by world-class vaccinology and immunology expert Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche.

Despite unacceptably low data quality, the agencies moved forward with the recommendation that all children in America, up to 75 percent of whom have acquired natural immunity against Covid as a result of previous infection, be immunized with the experimental shots. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are considered “investigative,” i.e., experimental, and are administered under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

“That slap in the face of science may explain why only 2% of parents of children under age five have chosen to get the Covid vaccine, and 40% of parents in rural areas say their pediatricians did not recommend the Covid vaccine for their child,” noted the doctors.

The doctors also point out that employees are being “muzzled” against open dissent and feel uncomfortable discussing the scientific observations that go against the official internal narrative. Makary further cited FDA staffers, who complained that “You get labeled based on what you say. If you talk about it you will suffer, I’m convinced,” and, “If you speak honestly, you get treated differently.” 

Makary and Høeg conclude that the result of the healthcare agencies’ caving into political pressure is crumbling public trust in “public health itself” with “potentially disastrous consequences.”
