Special Guest – Jon Rappoport!
Jon Rappoport has worked as a free-lance investigative reporter for over 30 years. He is the author of three explosive collections, THE MATRIX REVEALED, EXIT FROM THE MATRIX, and POWER OUTSIDE THE MATRIX. He has written articles on politics, health, media, culture and art for LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, Village Voice, Nexus, CBS Healthwatch, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe. In 1982, the LA Weekly submitted his name for a Pulitzer prize, for his interview with the president of El Salvador University, where the military had taken over the campus.
Coronavirus: a propaganda master advises the President before he addresses the nation What do most people say, if you raise questions about the reality of the “epidemic,” or even hint that the facts might be in doubt? Two responses high on the list: “but people are dying”; and “the experts wouldn’t lie.” So, in this episode of virus fakery and apocalypse on rye with mustard, I present a tale I like to call: THE PROPAGANDA MASTER COMES TO TOWN. This character is a wisdom figure and a teacher. He’s an old pro. He makes sure the lies are being told well and often. He reminds his troops of their mission. Pardon his language, but he has a very low opinion of humanity. Here he is now, getting out of his limo and walking into a five-star hotel. Conference room. A security team has checked the space for bugs and other electronic snooping. The shades are drawn. A dozen propaganda ops specialists are sitting at the long table.
Italy: “ICU wards are overflowing” Some people, even if they have fallen over a cliff, would, on the way down, shout: “The virus must be dangerous! What else could it be?” “People are dying! It’s got to be the virus!” How about this? “The ICU hospital wards in Italy are overflowing. It’s the virus.” Step back and think. THINK IT THROUGH. Watching a recent interview with an Italian public health official, I had the impression that perhaps several thousand new ICU patients were burdening the hospital system in the northern part of the country. Several thousand out of a national population of 60 million. Here’s the trick. Before the announcement of the coronavirus epidemic, people who showed up at those hospitals, with flu, flu-like symptoms, lung infections, pneumonia would be placed in the general wards and treated, or even sent home with drugs. But now they would, many of them, be called “presumptive cases” of coronavirus, without any tests at all, or after tests which don’t work (see my prior articles on why the diagnostic tests are useless and deceptive). By labeling these patients “contagious coronavirus,” the hospital doctors are forced to send them to the ICU, to “protect others from the infection.”
Coronavirus: how a rational CDC scientist would think, if one existed In a recent article, I explained why the diagnostic test for the coronavirus in a patient is worthless and unreliable. The implications of that fact are enormous. Here, I want to make further comments on fake science. A rational researcher, at the CDC, if one existed, would say, upon hearing of a possible outbreak in the city of Wuhan: “Let’s see the proof that a new virus is responsible, is the causative agent.” What kind of proof would he be asking for? First, he would want to know, “Do researchers there have an actual biological specimen of this new virus? Do they have the real thing?” And if the answer came back yes, he would reply, “We’re sending in one of our Wuhan people so he can confirm that.” But how would the confirmation work? You can’t just lay a specimen of a virus on a table and shine a light on it. It’s far too small to see. There is a traditional method of observation. It’s called an electron microscope photograph (an EM). Certain established procedures exist for obtaining an EM from a patient’s tissue sample. The CDC scientist would want to make sure the Chinese scientists had carried out this process correctly.

Coronavirus vs. Constitution: What can government stop you from doing in a pandemic? Public closures, a ban on gatherings, quarantine notices and orders for isolation have become increasingly common as the coronavirus continues to spread across the United States. Officials in Washington state and San Francisco are limiting the number of people allowed to attend public gatherings. The governor of California joined them on Thursday in urging the cancellation of all events with more than 250 people in attendance. The governor of Kentucky, a Bible belt state, has asked churches and other religious institutions to temporarily cancel services. But if it seems these actions are infringing on individual freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, think again. “You don’t have a right to assemble against the backdrop of known public health risk,” James G. Hodge told McClatchy News. Hodge is the director of the Center for Public Health Law and Policy at Arizona State University, an affiliate of the Network for Public Health Law. As the number of COVID-19 cases climbs, he said, the types of “aggressive measures” taking place in some parts of the country will be used elsewhere. As of Thursday, more than a dozen states from California to North Carolina have declared a state of emergency to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus
Panic buying at L.A. supermarkets amid coronavirus leaves shelves empty, many anxious With dozens of novel coronavirus cases confirmed in Los Angeles County, hordes of residents are swarming supermarkets, working from home and altering their lives in dramatic ways. Some of these behaviors are the result of recommendations from health officials, while others are based on instinct and, in some cases, fear. Christopher Thornberg, founding partner of Beacon Economics, compared the situation to a “national earthquake” that is hitting hard but will pass. “If we just close down the damn country … we might get in front of this and stop it, in which case that short-term panic will lead to a collective sigh of relief,” he said. The Ralphs parking lot in Koreatown on Friday morning looked like a crowded DMV office. Though parking spots were available, gridlock reigned as motorists drove in the wrong direction, blocked pathways and eased slowly around pedestrians walking every which way. Inside, the supermarket off 3rd Street and Vermont Avenue was a hive of activity. As three cashiers rang up purchases, dozens of customers waited in long queues that snaked through the market, past the fruit and vegetables displays and down the condiment and milk aisles. Many of them pushed shopping carts loaded with gallon jugs of water, stacks of frozen meat and cases of ramen noodles.
The Tenth Amendment
In legal terms, the Tenth Amendment is what is known as a “rule of construction.”It doesn’t add anything to the Constitution, nor does it take anything away. But it serves a very important function. It tells us how to interpret the document. Think of it like a lens through which we evaluate everything the federal government does..
The Tenth Amendment makes explicit two fundamental constitutional principles that are implicit in the document itself.
- The federal government is only authorized to exercise those powers delegated to it.
- The people of the several states retain the authority to exercise any power that is not delegated to the federal government as long as the Constitution doesn’t expressly prohibit it.
In a nutshell, the federal government has a very limited number of things it is authorized to do. These powers are listed throughout the Constitution.
Most power and authority remains with the states; either with the state governments or with the people themselves as they determine in each state.
St. George Tucker summed up this rule of Construction in View of the Constitution of the United States, the first extended, systematic commentary on the Constitution published after ratification:
“The powers delegated to the federal government, are, in all cases, to receive the most strict construction that the instrument will bear, where the rights of a state or of the people, either collectively or individually, may be drawn in question.”
Thomas Jefferson said he considered “the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground.”
If you apply these rules to anything and everything federal government does or proposes to do, your foundation will remain strong.
