Says ‘data suppression and intimidation’ creating mass psychosis
By WND Staff January 2, 2022
Popular Dr. Joseph Mercola says we’re in the middle of “an epidemic of madness” that occurs when a “large portion of society loses touch with reality and descends into delusions.”
It’s happening he says due to the “relentless fearmongering coupled with data suppression and intimidation tactics of all kind.”
He cited a 20-minute video, “Mass Psychosis – How an Entire Population Becomes Mentally Ill,” created by After Skool and Academy of Ideas, explains the tactics used to seed and nurture mental illness – on a grand scale.
A number of mental health experts have expressed concern over the blatant panic mongering during the COVID-19 pandemic, warning it can have serious psychiatric effects.
Dr. Mercola cites S.G. Cheah’s report which said, “Even when the statistics point to the extremely low fatality rate among children and young adults (measuring 0.002% at age 10 and 0.01% at 25), the young and the healthy are still terrorized by the chokehold of irrational fear when faced with the coronavirus.”
“It’s one of the reasons why you’re seeing so many people who’d happily approve the silencing of any medical experts whose views contradict the WHO or CDC guidelines,” Dr Mercola suggests. “‘Obey the rules!’ becomes more important than questioning if the rules were legitimate to begin with.”
In a December 2020 interview, psychiatrist and medical legal expert Dr. Mark McDonald also went on record stating “the true public health crisis lies in the widespread fear which morphed and evolved into a form of mass delusional psychosis.”
“The pandemic has had a game-changing effect on our mental health and it requires a revolutionary response,” says Dr. Mercola. “Dedicated additional funding for mental health and social care must go to frontline services to help meet the new demand, otherwise thousands of people could bear a catastrophic cost.”
Children are bearing a particularly heavy burden as adults succumb to irrational fears, says Dr. Mercola.
“One of the worst traumas inflicted on children has been the ridiculous idea that they might kill their parents or grandparents simply by being around them,” he says. “They’re also being taught to feel guilty about behaviors that would normally be completely normal – as just one example: hysterical adults calling a toddler who refuses to wear a mask a ‘brat,’ when resisting having a restrictive mask put across your face is perfectly normal at that age.”
It’s abnormal for children to grow up thinking that they’re a danger to people around them, and that everyone around them is a danger to them, he says.
“What’s more, by encouraging us to remain in fear and allow it to control and constrain our lives, the fear has become so entrenched that anyone who says we need to be fearless and fight for our freedoms is attacked for being both stupid and dangerous,” he adds.
It’s adults who are inflicting this emotional trauma on an entire generation, Dr. Mercola insists.
Worst of all, mass delusion is leading us into slavery.
“The mass delusion must also be addressed because it’s driving us all, sane and insane alike, toward a society devoid of all previous freedoms and civil liberties, and the corrupt individuals in charge will not voluntarily relinquish power once we’ve given it to them,” he says. “Totalitarianism actually begins as psychosis within the ruling class, as the individuals within this class are easily enamored with delusions that augment their power.”
If it begins with a form of communism, fascism or technocracy, a ruling elite that has succumbed to their own delusions of grandeur then sets about to indoctrinate the masses into their own twisted worldview. All that’s needed to accomplish that reorganization of society is the manipulation of collective feelings.
“Sadly, many citizens are unwittingly aiding and abetting the global power grab that will result in our enslavement,” says Dr. Mercola. “Fear fueled hysteria, which led to mass delusional psychosis and group control where citizens themselves support and press for the elimination of basic freedoms.”
The only solution is to restore sanity, he says.
“In short, to help return sanity to an insane world, you first need to center yourself and live in such a way as to provide inspiration for others to follow – speak and act in such a way as to demonstrate that you are not afraid to live life and return to normalcy,” Dr. Mercola suggests.
“No One Has Ever Complied Their Way Out of Totalitarianism – This Is the Hill We Need to Die On” – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Releases New Year’s Statement
By Jim Hoft January 2, 2022
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is quickly becoming one of the most important voices of our time. He continues to fearlessly call out the tyranny that is ripping apart the fabric of our country.
On Sunday Kennedy released a call to action for 2022.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: I’m going to tell you these three things that you need to remember in this critical day and age.
1.) Once government acquires a power, it never lets it go voluntarily.
2.) Every power that government acquires, using this pandemic as a pretense, it will ultimately abuse to the maximum effect possible. This is a rule that is as certain as gravity.
3.) Nobody has ever complied their way out of totalitarianism. Every time you comply the demands will get greater and greater.
We need to resolve here and now that this is the hill we need to die on. They have come for our jobs, they have come for our transport, now they’re coming for our children. We have an obligation as parents to protect them. There has never been a government in history that has told its people, we are going to demand children sacrifice and take risks to save old people. It’s always the other way around. The old, the mature, the adults, always put themselves at risk to protect their children. This is an ethical issue. It’s a moral issue. It’s an issue of character for each of us. And it’s an issue about democracy and public health.
Federal court sides with Navy SEALs seeking religious exemption to COVID-19 vaccination order
- By Mark A. Kellner– The Washington Times – Monday, January 3, 2022
The Defense Department can’t punish Navy SEALs and others who have religious objections to receiving a mandated vaccine against COVID-19, a federal district court judge ruled Monday.
The ruling by Judge Reed O’Connor of the District Court for the Northern District of Texas, blocks the Navy from taking action against the SEALs and other special operations personnel.
The Defense Department did not immediately respond to a request from The Washington Times for a comment on the ruling.
The service members are among hundreds who have sought religious exemptions to the August 2021 Defense Department mandate requiring all active-duty personnel to receive vaccination against the novel coronavirus.
So far, no branch of the U.S. military has granted a religious exemption to the vaccine mandate, with a Navy policy specifically blunting any requests from special operations warfighters: Special Operations “personnel refusing to receive recommended vaccines … based solely on personal or religious beliefs are disqualified.”
In his ruling, Judge O’Connor said, “The Navy servicemembers in this case seek to vindicate the very freedoms they have sacrificed so much to protect. The COVID-19 pandemic provides the government no license to abrogate those freedoms. There is no COVID-19 exception to the First Amendment. There is no military exclusion from our Constitution.”
First Liberty, the Texas-based public interest law firm representing what it said were “dozens of U.S. Navy SEALs and other Naval Special Warfare personnel” opposed to the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate, said the move protects the personnel from punishment for seeking a religious exemption.
“The latest count is well over 1,000 medical and administrative exemptions granted, but not a single religious exemption,” Mike Berry, First Liberty’s general counsel, said in a telephone interview.
“I literally have never heard of any such thing in my entire life or professional career. But I think it shows that this is really rooted in religious hostility, and in a political agenda,” he added.
Mr. Berry said that “religion and religious freedom enjoys the highest level of protection in our constitutional order,” and “the Department of Defense and the Biden Administration has been quite flamboyant about their unconstitutional actions when they have clearly treated religious accommodation requests far less favorably than they have treated medical and administrative exemption requests.”
In his opinion, Judge O’Connor, appointed in 2007 by President George W. Bush, said the plaintiffs satisfied the law’s requirements for a preliminary injunction — the case is likely to succeed on the merits, has demonstrated a substantial threat of irreparable harm, has shown the “balance of hardships” is in their favor, and an injunction “will not disserve the public interest.”
The judge also said the Navy’s willingness to grant exemptions to the vaccine for service members participating in clinical trials as well as those with medical issues and vaccine allergies while excluding religious objectors, means the policy is “underinclusive.”
Mr. Berry said “the ball is really in the Navy’s court” on whether the service will appeal the injunction or even ignore it.
“I hope that maybe this is a wake-up call to our national leaders and to the Pentagon, that religious freedom and our First Amendment rights as servicemembers can never take a back seat when it comes to other rights or other issues,” he added. “We have to be a nation that fulfills the full promise of the First Amendment; and people serving in the military — people who have sworn an oath to defend that very First Amendment — they should be treated no differently.”
