Based on what we’ve observed since the start of the Covid pandemic, it’s apparent the medical establishment wants Covid to look worse than it is. And now, with states enacting contact tracing programs, that practice is continuing.

Also, as we’ve observed, the medical community keeps moving the goalposts. As just one example, a May 18 video of the Collins County, TX Commissioners Court reveals that the definition of “new case” has changed. Whereas a “new case” used to be someone who was confirmed by test to have Covid, now a new case can be someone who was exposed to someone who was exposed to someone who had Covid, even if no symptoms are present.

This would explain why the number of new cases is increasing in America.

Remember the events of September 11, 2001? Less than two months afterwards, with American patriotism in high gear, the PATRIOT Act was signed into law. Hardly any lawmaker read the bill, save for Ron Paul and a few others who truly cared about the Constitution. After all, the PATRIOT Act was about protecting Americans, by golly, just sign it!

Tragically, the PATRIOT Act created new bureaucracies that could write their own rules and conduct unreasonable searches and seizures without due process. Most have come to regret the PATRIOT Act. Americans can be seen holding their breath, hoping the gestapo-like agents of the TSA won’t decide to enforce some capricious rule and make you throw out that donut in your carry-on.

And now with America’s latest crisis, the Coronavirus Task Force painted worst-case scenarios and legacy (“mainstream”) media whipped the country into a frenzy of fear. Americans obediently shut down their businesses and shuttered themselves in their homes. “Two weeks to flatten the curve,” we were told. But two weeks became four, and then six, and then eight. In some states, restrictions remain in place to this day.

Accompanying the shutdown was Congressional activity that always seems to accompany a crisis, and the CARES Act flew through Congress with little, if any, debate. Again, most didn’t read the bill, and there wasn’t even a roll call vote.

But just as the PATRIOT Act brought the gestapo-like TSA, the CARES Act has given us gestapo-like contact tracing. Despite some people thinking it’s a good idea, I guarantee Americans will come to regret this, too. And they’ll regret it sooner than they might think.

Procedures vary by state, but if you’ve been near someone for 15 minutes or more, and three days later that someone happens to test positive for Covid-19, you will be contacted by a contact tracer and asked to test for Covid. In some states, even if you’re asymptomatic, you’ll be asked to voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days. And in some places it won’t be just you that gets quarantined, it will also be your spouse and kids.

And if you won’t quarantine voluntarily they can make it mandatory. States like Washington even have hundreds of National Guard members as part of the contract tracing teams. How long before someone in a military uniform with an assault weapon is at your door telling you to stay in your home because your brother-in-law’s sister’s cousin tested positive for Covid, and your kid was at her kid’s birthday party over the weekend?

I’ve written columns explaining this in greater detail, and even made a video explaining the contact tracing process. As a result, I’ve received multiple stories from readers. Here’s a contact tracing story from Idaho:

My brother was recently contacted by a ‘tracer’ because his girlfriend’s brother-in-law, who had NO symptoms, went to a testing site and apparently tested positive.

They traced everyone he was near which included my brother. My brother then got a phone call telling him he was exposed, and they also told him that they now have to document him as having Covid (though he has no symptoms) because he hasn’t been tested. They apparently did this to around 20 associated friends.

So, because one guy [without symptoms] was curious and tested positive, 21 new cases were added to the numbers. Now imagine that extrapolated across the country. People need to wake up and realize they’re being played hardcore big-time right now! It’s absolutely insane!

Perhaps this explains why traditional media outlets are reporting a spike in new cases.

I’m also receiving stories about doctors pushing for people to get tested for Covid.

“I took my mother to the doctor this last week. She had no Covid symptoms AT ALL. The doctor told her she should still get tested. Are these doctors getting some kind of kickback, like when they vaccinate your kid?”

And this one:

Several weeks after our son, age 22, went camping, he started experiencing migraines, fatigue, rashes all over his body, joint aches, and a slight fever. Concerned he might have been bitten by a tick, he paid a visit to an urgent care clinic near his apartment. The clinic ignored his symptoms and sent him to a second clinic so he could get a Covid-19 test. That’s all. There was no other diagnosis.

Our son had to wait several days for the test results to come back. They came back negative, but by that time he was beginning to experience facial dropping along with joint aches and more rashes. All the symptoms of textbook Lyme disease.

He then made a trip to an emergency room where he had to DEMAND blood work and a Lyme test. Sure enough he came back positive for Lyme disease, and is now on antibiotics. He’s now feeling better and we are so glad he persisted. No matter where he went, the focus was only on Covid-19 testing!

What’s sad is these people don’t want their names affiliated with their stories, because they don’t want to lose their jobs for speaking out or have the government crack down on them. But facts are facts: Americans are being manipulated, and along the way, our rights and livelihoods are evaporating.

Here’s something to remember. Rights are rarely taken away; usually we just give them up.

Maybe you’ve seen those videos of police demanding information from people, and people saying, “I am under no obligation to give you that information.” The cops press harder, insisting the person must give the information, but the person stands his ground.

Then, when a cop realizes his bullying won’t work, you can hear him tell another cop as they’re walking away, “The guy knows his rights.”

This same scenario is happening across America today. Contact tracing is being implemented in states without their state legislatures voting on it, and people are simply giving up their rights. The result is a gestapo-like bureaucracy of contact tracers, stripping Americans of their rights without due process, with many Americans just letting it happen.

Like I said, this doesn’t have to happen. Americans can demand that their state legislatures get involved, because our inalienable rights are truly on the line.

Thankfully, people like Senator Rand Paul are being bold and calling out Anthony Fauci and other fear mongerers. It’s long overdue.

The choice is up to us. Submit to more gestapo tactics, or stand up and say, “no.”
