COMMENT: Hi Marty,This just came through to every cell phone. We are not allowed to leave homes in Ontario unless we seek healthcare or vaccines. I guess vaccines are not considered healthcare, since they are listed separately.Is there a vaccine from totalitarianism?LREPLY: There is absolutely no evidence that lockdowns reduce anything, nor masks and social distancing. The Marine study showed that masks, social distancing, and quarantines did not people from still contracting COVID. These tyrannical COVID supporters screamed demanding that it be withdrawn. They want to end society as we have known it. It seems this will eventually require a revolution. It is unbelievable how human rights mean nothing. Violence is rising because people are being confined. Everything from shooting a noisy neighbor to rapes and domestic violence is rising along with teenage suicides. There are manipulating the White House website removing all the dislikes trying to pretend the majority approve of destroying our future.

Friend of the Treehouse, Peter Duke, introduced me to this story and it is blood-boiling, yet awesome.
A young man named Lucas Lepejian is in a battle with Burbank authorities who are trying to run him out of business. Lucas is the 20-year-old son of Baret Lepejian the proprietor of a long-standing western-themed restaurant called Tinhorn Flats; a well known place to dine in Burbank, California.
Local authorities have attempted to shut down Tinhorn Flats repeatedly. Each time Lucas defies the orders and reopens.
Lucas has been arrested three times in defiance of the ridiculous COVID shutdown.
The issue now is personal, the authorities are intent on destroying his business… Lucas, and a small battalion of supporters, remain defiant.
TIMELINE & DETAILS: Tinhorn Flats is the oldest bar in Burbank. In March of 2020 they shut down in compliance with state guidelines. They reopened in November 2020, and when the second lockdown was announced their defiance began.
Burbank authorities first cited and fined Tinhorn Flats. Lucas refused to pay and stayed open. Burbank authorities cut their utilities. Lucas brought in generators and stayed open. Burbank authorities Red tagged his restaurant and locked the doors. Lucas cut the locks and reopened. Burbank authorities boarded up the doors and ‘red tagged’ again as unsafe. Lucas sawed off the boards and reopened his business. Burbank police then arrested Lucas. Lucas made bail and was released.
Regular protests then began to support Lucas. Burbank authorities came back and replaced the boards (thicker w/ security nails). Lucas sawed off those boards and reopened business. Burbank police then arrested Lucas the second time. Lucas made bail and was released. Burbank authorities again replaced the boards on the doors and added sand bags; (police later announced that anyone moving a sandbag would be arrested). Lucas removed the sandbags. Lucas was arrested, made bail and was released.
Today the city of Burbank installed fences around the property…. the battle continues.
Lucas and Baret Lepejian are being represented by attorney Mark Geragos [SEE HERE].
Diana West puts it well:
“As anyone can see from the Tinhorn Flats’ Instagram page, the restaurant supports freedom, capitalism and President Trump, and reviles tyranny, socialism and Governor Newsom. No wonder they are in the crosshairs — but no wonder they are in the fight!
If you can’t show up, you can support the Tinhorn Flats Legal Defense Fund here.”
When the virus plandemic began to unfold, I heard Ben make several predictions that came true. He knew the virus would be used to hurt Trump’s reelection, but he didn’t know that the Democrats would use it to leverage mail-in ballot fraud that allowed the unpopular Biden to steal the presidency outright.
I do remember Ben railing against mask wearing. He predicted that they’d become permanent and they have been for nearly a year now. They’re still being over-worn even though many governors have dropped their mandates—which weren’t even law in the first place. Governors can’t make laws, but if corporations enforce the mandates then that’s that.
The most ominous thing that Ben fretted about were the dangerous vaccines. He knew they were coming and he saw that they would become mandatory. He knew that Bill Gates would use them as a means of control through tracking and eventually they’d be used to depopulate the Earth. We’ve seen too many people eagerly line up to take the jabs even though the evidence of them causing injury and death have been overwhelming. Too many people have received the vaccine and then dropped dead within weeks.
Ben has assembled a collection of his ant-medical tyranny cartoons drawn over the past 10 years. I have a few cartoons in the book myself. Most were drawn during the last year. The book will come out later this month and we hope you consider purchasing it to help our cause at GrrrGraphics. We hope the book will be widely seen in order to help raise awareness of how the virus has been used to strip us of our liberties.

The Big Tech ministry of COVID compliance has again removed scientific discussion that runs counter to the approved narrative presented by the ideological community. In this article we explain why….
…”COVID Compliance is Infrastructure“
Governor Ron DeSantis held a roundtable discussion with panel experts from world-renowned doctors and epidemiologists from Oxford, Stanford and Harvard. However, the panel debated the efficacy of masks on children and that apparently was considered too contrarian for the Big Tech control agents.
(Via NBC) – […] The video of DeSantis’ roundtable discussion last month at the state Capitol in Tallahassee was removed on Wednesday because it violated the social media platform’s standards, YouTube spokesperson Elena Hernandez said.
[…] “YouTube has clear policies around Covid-19 medical misinformation to support the health and safety of our users,” Hernandez said in a statement. “We removed AIER’s video because it included content that contradicts the consensus of local and global health authorities regarding the efficacy of masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19.”
[…] DeSantis’s press secretary Cody McCloud called YouTube’s move “another blatant example of Big Tech attempting to silence those who disagree with their woke corporate agenda.”
“YouTube claimed they removed the video because ‘it contradicts the consensus of local and global health authorities,’ yet this roundtable was led by world-renowned doctors and epidemiologists from Oxford, Stanford, and Harvard, all of whom are eminently qualified to speak on the global health crisis,” McCloud said. “Good public health policy should include a variety of scientific and technical expertise, and YouTube’s decision to remove this video suppresses productive dialogue of these complex issues.”
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford University, one of the scientists on the panel, said this “was a policy forum, in which it is appropriate to consider both the benefits and costs of a policy (child masking) when making judgments and recommendations.” (read more)
CTH warned since last summer of the ramifications if a leftist group used COVID-19 to expand federal power over peoples lives and livelihoods. In January JoeBama’s team unleashed a series of TEN EXECUTIVE ORDERS fully weaponizing the opportunity. Their need to control the public behavior requires them to control public information.
(2) Executive order on COVID school safety, weaponized the Dept of Education. Leverages federal funds, grants. Supports the education labor union effort. Exactly as expected.
(3) Executive order creating COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force. Weaponizing the HHS takeover; the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the Secretary of Education, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Again, exactly as predicted.
(4) Executive order using National Health Crisis as a security threat. Weaponizing the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the Secretary of Homeland Security.
(5) Executive order taking over National Guard. The domestic terrorists need a category within the health emergency. The isolation and detainment camps need security. “Support of Operations or Missions to Prevent and Respond to the Spread of COVID-19. (a) The Secretary of Defense shall, to the maximum extent feasible and consistent with mission requirements (including geographic proximity), request pursuant to 32 U.S.C. 502(f) that all State and territorial governors order National Guard forces to perform duty to fulfill mission assignments.”
(6) Executive order taking control of travel. “The Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Secretary of Transportation (including through the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)), the Secretary of Homeland Security (including through the Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard).

Social changes under the guise of COVID-19 mitigation, are the entry point for the goals and aspirations of the political left on a national and global scale. COVID-19 is a virus, but also a very important political weapon, and we are about to discover exactly what the purpose of the hype is all about. What follows will help understand; and when you encounter the fear it will help to reconcile what people cannot figure out.
Joe Biden is an avatar; a political pawn; a cognitively declining guy who has no idea what is happening around him. The people behind the Biden campaign, those in real control of what this is about, have not hidden their goals and aspirations. These are not stupid people. They are scheming, conniving, ever-planning, ever-manipulating & Machiavellian types within the political system; lusting for power, influence and affluence.
What they are planning to do is weaponize COVID-19 to attain ideological objectives. This is why they hyped the fear within it for almost a year. Nothing within their plan requires the approval or consent of any representative body in Washington DC. COVID is the tool to “fundamentally change” the way the United States exists.
On October 23, 2020, those behind the Biden campaign dropped all pretense, openly having their candidate state publicly his intention to control the lives of all Americans using the authority of a weaponized federal government to advance national COVID-19 regulations.
The Dept of Transportation would be the agency enforcing a national interstate transit mask requirement. However, don’t focus on the DoT part of what he was saying… that’s only one creek… Instead focus on the downstream use of all federal regulatory agencies and how they align within a Federal COVID compliance network… that’s the river.
Think about the Dept of Agriculture (SNAP/food stamps), the Dept. of Labor, the Dept of Education, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Dept of Labor, Dept of Energy and how they would join with the DoT to create the aggregate raging river of regulation.
Think about the federal government using mandates for enforced national COVID-19 compliance rules. Think about USDA (Dept of Agriculture) and OSHA federal inspections for social distancing (etc) in all businesses, not just restaurants.
Think about the COVID-19 regulatory and compliance system and what political beneficiaries stand to gain.
Think about the Dept of Education using COVID to restructure the way education is taught and the downstream regulations on charter schools and non-compliant educational systems that do not meet the ideological objectives of the master control plan.
Think about how the Dept. of Labor (complaint division) can be weaponized against political opposition based on arbitrary inspections under the guise of employee health and safety…. using federal COVID compliance rules.
Think about required days off for the entire employee base if a single infection is identified in the workplace. Paid days off…. funded by Federal Government. Think about how that changes the income dependency dynamic.
Think about the larger Green New Deal (goals and objectives), and then contrast those objectives while aligning an overlay map of how federal COVID mitigation rules can be applied as a back door to the EXACT SAME objective.
Far beyond masks…. Workspaces being forced to be redesigned. New rules on labor density. New rules on labor/manufacturing and office proximity. New rules on uniforms. New rules on hand-washing stations. New rules on sick pay, shift hours, time-off when a COVID infection is detected in the workplace.
Think about everything from rules on surfaces, to rules on packaging, to rules on ALL business operations as an outcome of federal regulatory policy under the guise of CVOID-19 mitigation. OSHA, Labor, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Education, Housing, Health and Human Services, and even federal building permits… the entire regulatory system and compliance network.
Think about Housing and Urban Development (HUD) having new rules about dwellings and complexes for housing grants. Population density; the need to move into the suburbs and the confiscation of private property to “ensure the common safety” of the citizens.
This is what the Biden administration is talking about when they are proposing the new “INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING” !!
Think about those types of business regulations applied on a National level…. and then, as seen in prior Democrat administrations with IRS etc, think about them also being enforced through the prism of political affiliation.
Think about how states that refuse to participate will be cut off from federal grants and funding for college tuition, Medicare and/or medicaid reimbursement, etc. etc.
Think about what happens to Main Street USA?
Think long and hard about how far the tentacles of achieving the Green New Deal can extend under the auspices of federal COVID-19 mitigation.
Remember, those who are working on this don’t care about the middle-class and they have not for decades. The visibility of the ‘rust belt’ is the reference. This is about government bureaucrats using their DC power-base to control trillions in economic value and sell their ability to influence the winners and losers to the highest foreign bidder.
Look at what blue states have already done to seize power and control. Now think about that same manipulative intent spread throughout the entire country by weaponizing federal agencies with advanced regulation.
Those behind the executive branch; those controlling Joe Biden; will harness and weaponize the power. The legislative leftists will attempt to ensure the new systems they create under the guise of COVID-19 are never in a position to be withdrawn.
Why? – Why all of this effort?… why such extremes?… Follow the money, it’s always about the money. The globalist ideology is worthless without money. Wall Street’s Rick Santelli knows, he’s watching the second deployment of an identical playbook.
So when your friends ask why, talk about ‘why‘. The weaponization of COVID is the ongoing crisis that will facilitate government solutions. As the American people resist the bait represented by the COVID crisis, those who need to weaponize it will keep turning up the pressure until they have full totalitarian control…
The One Thing Fauci Is Good at..Honk Honk!
As I sat in the truck waiting for Tina to return from the supermarket, a young lady pulled up in a spot in front of me. I watched her put on a mask. Then I watched her carefully put another mask over it. Even though our Montana governor lifted the mask mandate, too many people here are still wearing them—even two of them! I wondered if it was due to Dr. Fauci’s influence. The highest-paid un-elected government functionary in America said wearing two masks was ‘common sense.’ Fauci prides himself as being the voice of science, but didn’t mention the science behind mask wearing—especially two of them. Maybe it’s because science has already shown masks do no good whatsoever and indeed, they can cause wearers physical harm–including bacterial pneumonia.
I remember watching Dr. Fauci on CNN. He was masked up and extolling the virtue of mask wearing. After his segment ended and when he thought the camera was turned off, he promptly yanked his mask off. That’s all I needed to see. The masks are political theater—a bogus form of virtue signaling that helps perpetuate a sense of fear and crisis.
The ever-smiling Dr. Fauci should retire, but he enjoys basking in the limelight. He loves attention. He loves telling people what to do. He’s a diminutive man with a huge ego and it requires constant validation. He’s a medical Napoleon who loves marshaling power for himself and his fellow sociopath and master, Bill Gates.
Dr. Fauci has gotten so many things wrong over the years that one would think that he should have no credibility whatsoever, but he appears on all the mainstream propaganda channels and too many Americans need their hands held by him. They need assurance. They need to DO something to battle the bogus pandemic and ease their fearful minds–and that means taking dangerous vaccines and wearing masks. Multiple doses and multiple masks.
It’s time to end this madness. Stop listening to Dr. Fauci. He is a fraud.
