‘Prior to 2020, if you heard the term “lockdown” you might think of something that happens in a prison — not in a free society. This mechanism of control has since become commonplace — not among prisoners but among the free — with repercussions that are only beginning to be understood.
The film Planet Lockdown explores this unprecedented time in history, speaking with epidemiologists, scientists, doctors and other experts to uncover the real motives behind the increasing totalitarian control taking over the globe. Already banned by Facebook and YouTube, the film starts at the beginning of the pandemic, when we were told lockdowns were necessary to “flatten the curve.”
This was supposed to be a short-term, 15-day event in the U.S., but the narrative soon changed to ongoing restrictions. As Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., a former vice-president and chief scientific adviser of the drug company Pfizer and founder and CEO of the biotech company Ziarco, now owned by Novartis, explained, people have historically quarantined the sick, but quarantining healthy people, as has occurred for the past two years, has no scientific backing or historic precedence.2
“Given this virus represents, at most, a slightly bigger risk to the old and ill than seasonal influenza, and a less risk, a smaller risk, to almost everyone else who’s younger and fit,” Yeadon says, “it was never necessary for us to have done anything. We didn’t need to do anything — lockdowns, masks, testing, vaccines even.”3
Dr. Scott Jensen, a family doctor and former member of the Minnesota Senate, received an email from the Department of Health that seemed to be coaching him to use COVID-19 as a diagnosis in situations where he wouldn’t have previously used influenza or any other specific viral diagnosis without first testing for it. He said:4
“What struck me right away was I felt like I was being coached to go ahead and use COVID-19 without using the same standards of precision that I would for other things. If I’m going to make a diagnosis, I believe as a physician I have an obligation to use the tools available to me to nail it down with as much certainty as possible.
And it seemed to me that the Department of Health, and the link to this CDC document that said you could diagnose COVID-19 as a cause of death on a death certificate … those two documents, in tandem, went against everything that I had been taught or doing for the last 35 years.”
Even Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Health, is featured in the film stating that even if you died of a clear alternate cause, if you had COVID-19 at the same time, it would still be listed as a COVID death. “Everyone who is listed as a COVID death, doesn’t mean that was the cause of the death,” she says.5
In January 2020, the PCR test for COVID-19 came out, which allowed health officials to define COVID-19 “cases.” If the test was positive, it counted as a case — it didn’t matter if you have symptoms or not. Reiner Fuellmich, global fraud attorney, founder of the Corona Investigative Committee, pointed out, “It’s never, in the history of mankind, in the history of medicine, there’s never been testing of healthy people.”6
Yeadon agrees that mass testing of people with no symptoms has no scientific basis. Rather, he says, “It’s just a way to frighten people.”7 The rising “cases,” based on PCR testing, is what built the crisis. But counting cases was only measuring the activity of testing; the more that testing occurred, the more cases that were found.
‘Fear Everyone’ Became the Message
June 8, 2020, WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced that asymptomatic people could transmit COVID-19. That same day, Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO technical lead for the COVID-19 pandemic, made it very clear that people who have COVID-19 without any symptoms “rarely” transmit the disease to others. In a dramatic about-face, WHO then backtracked on the statement just one day later.8
In the days that followed, media and health officials ramped up fear by claiming that you could be sickened by virtually anyone, even when they appeared to be healthy. “This idea that … you can be ill even though you have no symptoms and you can be a … virus threat to someone else even though you have no symptoms, that’s also invented in 2020,” Yeadon says.9
Alexandra Henrion-Caude, geneticist, former director of research with the French National Institute of Health, is among those who have noticed something off from the start. “I was very puzzled since the very beginning … I was alert to the fact that what we were living was not quite right.”10
She notes that the notion of asymptomatic spread is terrifying because it turns virtually anyone you meet or encounter on the street into the enemy, because they could be exposing you to SARS-CoV-2. “This is actually terrible because it denies the capacity of a person to be a healthy person. Because if asymptomatic [spread] exists, then who is healthy? No one.”
What’s more, the “proof” of asymptomatic spread is flawed and fraudulent. The New England Journal of Medicine published an article suggesting the transmission of COVID-19 is possible from an asymptomatic carrier in January 2020.11
It was based on a 33-year-old businessman who had met with his business partner from Shanghai, then developed a fever and productive cough. The next evening, he felt better and went back to work January 27.
The writers reported the partner had been “well with no signs or symptoms of infection, but had become ill on her flight back to China, where she tested positive for 2019-nCoV on January 26.” From this case study, they theorized the virus could be transmitted from asymptomatic carriers. An important point was left out, which is that the researchers did not speak with the partner from Shanghai before publication.
However, Germany’s public health agency, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), did speak with the woman on the phone, and she reported she did have symptoms while in Germany.12 So she was not asymptomatic after all.
In a State of Incoherence, People Crave Normalcy
The pandemic has twisted reality, leaving the public in a mental fog. “You’re regularly pledging obedience to things which are not logical,” Catherine Austin-Fitts, assistant secretary, Bush Sr. administration and investment adviser with Solari, Inc., says.13 WHO has changed definitions of herd immunity and pandemic, literally altering reality, and this is just one example.
Censorship and campaigns to discredit those who speak out against the narrative are additional control mechanisms that distort the truth. Bishop Schneider of Kazakhstan says the pandemic measures are very similar to Soviet times where he lived, in that there was only one narrative, and if you said there was another meaning, you were declared an enemy.
“When you had another opinion, they said, ‘You are a conspiracy group. You have a conspiracy theory. You have hate speech. This expression, hate speech, came from the communists.”14 It’s psychological manipulation, based on fear, which makes people act totally irrational. The artificially imposed state of incoherence was even described by Austin-Fitts as a torture tactic, designed to get people to submit to vaccine passports and COVID-19 shots:15
“Human beings crave coherence. And so if you can put them in a state of incoherence they will literally do anything they can to get back to coherence. It’s a typical torture tactic. ‘If you just do what I want, I will allow you to go back to a state of coherence.’ So, if you just accept the [vaccine] passports, you’ll be free. Or if you get the vaccination, you’ll just be free.”
Further, by declaring small businesses as “nonessential” during lockdowns, they get shut down, while Amazon, Walmart and other big box stores can take over their market share. A major transfer of wealth occurred away from small family-owned businesses to very large, publicly owned businesses that benefited from the digital economy. In the meantime, Austin-Fitts explains:16
“The people on Main St. have to keep paying off their credit cards or their mortgage, so they’re in a debt trap and they’re desperate to get cashflow to cover their debts and expenses.
In the meantime, you have the Federal Reserve institute a form of quantitative easing where they’re buying corporate bonds, and the guys who are taking up the market share can basically finance — or their banks can — at 0% to 1%, when everyone on Main St. is paying 16% to 17% to their credit cards, without income.
So basically now you’ve got them over a barrel and you can take away their market share, and generally they can’t afford to do what they say because they’re too busy trying to find money to feed their kids.”
New Control Systems Are Being Engineered
If a few people want to control many, how can you get the sheep into the slaughterhouse without them realizing and resisting? “The perfect thing,” Austin-Fitts says, is invisible enemies, like viruses.17 This ramps up fear so the public believes they need the government to protect them. Another effective tactic is “divide and conquer,” and the media plays an important role in this, dividing people over shots and masks, for instance.
“What COVID-19 is,” Austin-Fitts explains, “is the institution of controls necessary to convert the planet from the democratic process to technocracy. So what we’re watching is a change in control and an engineering of new control systems. So think of this as a coup d’état. It’s much more like a coup d’état than a virus.”18
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a former public health official and member of German parliament, agrees, stating that pandemic responses have “nothing to do with hygiene. It has to do with criminology.”19 The global injection campaign is another form of control, one that’s forcing the public to receive experimental shots.
Many of the experts in the film bring up the Nuremberg Code, which spells out a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation. This set of principles was developed to ensure the medical horrors discovered during the Nuremberg trials at the end of World War II would never take place again.
But in the current climate of extreme censorship, people are not being informed about the full risks of the shots — which are only beginning to be uncovered. People are being forced into the shots due to mandates and loss of jobs and personal freedoms, like the ability to travel freely and attend business and social events.
In the End, Truth Will Win
A revolution is occurring, and the experts are hopeful that people will awaken to common sense and resist the totalitarian control that is threatening to take over the globe. Instead, society can be regenerated if people come together and fight back against the encroachment on our liberties.
Civil disobedience, boycotting businesses that are requiring vaccine passports, participating in rallies and fighting illegal mandates in court are ways that everyone can get involved in protecting freedom. “If they want to make us a machine, if they want to make us slaves, we say no,” Wodarg says. “… We don’t need you anymore, we are many … we don’t have to be afraid of any pandemic.”20

‘Jordan Hall, Baptist pastor and publisher of popular conservative news site, sued for libel by transgender lobbyist
State’s left-wing legal establishment & well-funded LGBT “lawfare” mob seek to stop site’s influential voice
Far-left Judge to hold preliminary hearing Feb. 16 to determine whether pastor is a “dangerous person”
Pastor Jordan Hall with his wife and five children.
A conservative pastor who is the publisher of Montana’s largest and most influential conservative news site is being sued for “libel” by a bizarre transgender lobbyist. The leftist judge assigned to the case is also threatening the pastor with fines and a gag order even before the trial takes place.
This assault on free speech and free press is buttressed by the state’s far-left legal establishment and appears to be funded by the wealthy LGBT and Planned Parenthood lobby. The aggressive legal action, including an invasive “discovery” process of the pastor’s media operation, is clearly aimed to put the conservative news site and its subsidiary voices out of business. The radicals would even like to dictate what the pastor may say in his own church.’ For the entire article go to https://newpatriotsblog.com/
‘Soldiers and police officers offering support and protection to citizens protesting tyrannical lockdowns and “vaccine” mandates are under attack by their left-wing governments. Countries are vilifying and persecuting servicemen who remain faithful to the oath they took to defend their country against all foreign and domestic enemies.
Most recently, German Sergeant Major Andreas Oberauer was unlawfully arrested and smeared by international left-wing media for releasing a video demanding an end to Germany’s lockdown measures, mandatory “vaccines,” and violent abuse of protesters. In the December 28, 2021 video, Sergeant Oberauer drew attention to the abuse of children and the elderly at pro-freedom protests:
Now we see children being pushed down on the streets and old men being threatened with having their skulls smashed [by police].
The Sergeant called on his fellow soldiers and police officers to protect the daily peaceful protest walks taking place across Germany from the unconstitutional abusive behavior of the state police. In the video, he commands his subordinates to arrest officers physically abusing citizens and violating their rights:
Stand clearly with the people of Germany and clearly for Constitutional Law. This is addressed to every man, to defend the constitutional right of these demonstrations and to intervene to protect women and children from — what should I call them? Mercenaries? They can’t be called policemen anymore.
To protect. That’s exactly what I am calling every constitution-loyal policeman in Germany to do. Intervene, stop your own colleagues from attacking people, children and women. Equally, I also call upon every soldier today to intervene and protect these demonstrators — in uniform.
I will now give the command. Here speaks Sergeant Oberauer: I order all soldiers under my rank back into service in uniform, from 19:00. Your order is to protect the civilian population during demonstrations from all outside attacks and to intervene with every policeman behaving unconstitutionally or encroaching on the population’s rights. They are to be arrested and led to prosecution.
German Defense Ministry took to Twitter on December 30, 2021, to condemn the Sergeant’s video. They stated that it “contains threats against the state of law that are unacceptable.” He added that “the consequences are already being examined.”
Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht wrote that the military needs “upstanding people who stand firmly on the foundation of our constitution.” Anyone who doesn’t share those values “has no place in our Bundeswehr,” she added.
Hours after the state condemned Sergeant Major Oberauer, Munich police arrested him’https://rairfoundation.com/covid-tyranny-governments-target-military-and-police-defending-their-country-constitutions/
Proverbs 31:8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
How did it get to this point in Australia that there ARE now two classes of citizens; the clean (vaxxed) and the unclean (unvaxxed)? It didn’t take much for the state governments to mandate “no jab, no job” and the people succumbed without much of a whimper.
Now, almost, two years after the so-called pandemic was announced some churches are still not physically meeting together as outlined in Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching and for some if they are now physically meeting together they are a segregated lot. The following concerns the plight we find ourselves in due to the totalitarian response to a PLANDEMIC!
‘As a Brazilian by birth, someone who was born on the year a dictatorship in the name of safety ended in my country, I have always had a dear appreciation for the warnings penned by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller:
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Churches, I have a special appeal to you. As a minister of Christ myself who has lost his job because of not agreeing to support measures that promote segregation introduced in the church setting, I beg of you, please, stand by the side of hundreds of thousands who are being marginalized right now. Stand by the side of those who are going to become second-class citizens. If watching what is taking place in other states hasn’t been enough to stir you up yet, now the threat is real and evil is in the house.
Stand and fight for your flocks and for the people of your communities. Let them know they are not alone. Let them know we will sit with them in the gutter any day of the week. Let those who are been ostracized and despised know that they are NOT going to live a “very very lonely life”. Speak against this false gospel of “Life will be miserable without being vaccinated”. There are many who need you right now to speak for them. “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9).’https://caldronpool.com/brace-yourself-australia-it-is-game-on-against-segregation/
Across Australia and ‘Across America today, there is a move to silence Christians.
There’s a massive effort on the part of social media, the biased news media, politicians and bureaucrats to silence Christians from speaking on moral issues, political issues, and even the truth about Jesus Christ.
Unfortunately, many Christians are caving in and compromising, including pastors and church leaders.
Here are 6 things every Christian should know:
#1. Freedom of worship – today’s megatrend.
Freedom of worship is what President Biden and those hostile to evangelical Christians believe in.
This is in contrast to freedom of religion.
Freedom of worship means you can believe what you want, but you cannot share it.
This is what you find in many socialist and communist countries: you can believe in Jesus Christ, but you have to keep your beliefs to yourself.
This megatrend is based on the fact that they want a consensus that’s not offensive to anyone.
Don’t disagree with the culture…or the politicians and bureaucrats.
Don’t speak out about truth or your faith.
Don’t say anything that would offend anyone.
If what you say is “hurtful,” you need to be silent.
If what you say makes someone uncomfortable, you need to be silent.
If you want to share the gospel, you need to make sure it’s not offensive.
If it is, it’s disallowed.
In ancient Rome, in the early church, Christians were known as “haters.”
Not because they hated but because they were defined as haters by the government and by the average person.
Why? Because their beliefs were contrary to the cultural and political values of the day.
You see, the Christians – who are known by their love — were acknowledged for helping pick up babies set aside on the side of the road as a form of abortion — and adopting them.
Christians were the ones who started the hospitals, took care of the sick, and educated people.
Christians were known for helping one another and those around them.
But they were still “haters” because they were contrary to the culture.
That’s why the early church endured such tremendous persecution.
You can also see this in the book of Acts and in Paul’s writings.
I’m teaching a Bible study right now on the book of Philippians, and in Acts 16 you can see some of the persecution that Paul went through and that the church had to endure.
#2: Resist religious zealots who oppose biblical morality and who make good evil, and evil good.
“Religious” zealots – some who are secular, some who follow a false religion — are attacking Christians with moral superiority and great energy.
They are promoting the Equality Act.
They are using the media to try to force Christians into silence.
In the schools and in the community, they want to silence Christians.
They have replaced the true and living God with religious zealousness. They claim that they have the high moral ground, and that Christians are terrible people – deplorables.
#3. Many Christians are okay with cultural conformity.
This is not true – Christians being conformed to this world. “Conform to our culture…conform to the political establishment” is not what Christianity is about.
From the early church on, Christians have stood on a moral ground based upon biblical truth, not cultural acceptance.
The Philippians, for example, where at odds with the culture. The slave girl, the jailer, the wealthy Asian businesswoman, they and others in the church of Philipi accepted Christ, pitting themselves in contrast to the pagan society around them.
#4: Christians must have the courage to stand strong.
What’s interesting throughout the Bible is how we see Christians – people of God — being persecuted from the start to the end.
What we see over and over again in the New Testament is a declaration that Christians need to stand firm. Not to give in. Not to compromise. But to have courage to move forward.
There is a choice between compromise and just getting along.
We see this in Acts 5:28: “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” the high priest said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”
And what was the response?
“On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were at a loss, wondering what this might lead to.” Acts 5:24.
#5. What is a Christian?
A Christian is one who has been translated from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light.
They have been born again.
They are salt and light. And we have the Great Commission to spread the gospel.
Our testimony requires not editing and watering down the gospel to please man.
Some pastors and church leaders seem to be okay with keeping their churches closed or compromised or not loving their flock. These are not being good shepherds to their people.
Those who are afraid about what the politicians, bureaucrats, media and others say — who wish to get along for political or economic favor — are not standing firm.
Some are afraid of losing influence or status. It’s something that we must resist.
#6: Finally…yes, there is sin and hell.
There are those who are silent about sin.
There are those who will want to deny hell.
They think talking about sin and hell is wrong.
They might not believe in electricity.
That doesn’t change the truth that electricity is real.
There is one prediction I feel confident making: you and every human born has sin and will die.
What happens at death?
Hebrews 9:27: Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.
The Bible is clear. 2 Corinthians 5:10: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
Our hope is in Jesus Christ alone.
He died on the cross for our sin.
He rose from the dead.
He provides those who believe in eternal life…and forgiveness of sins because of his death on the cross.
It’s all because of His grace and mercy.
‘A young girl who wanted to wear her faith on her mask never expected it to be a problem at school but that is what happened.
Lydia Booth told the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) she simply liked wearing the mask to show her faith in Jesus. She also said, “It makes me feel like I’m protected by Jesus.”
She says she believed others would “think it’s a great mask, and that Jesus is a great God, and a great Savior.”
School officials told her she couldn’t wear it because of a policy not allowing masks with political or religious messages. However, Lydia’s mother, Jennifer, checked the handbook and dress code and didn’t find that restriction.
She also discovered that masks with sports logos and other messages like “Black Lives Matter” were allowed.
The Booth family reached out to ADF for help and it filed a lawsuit against her school district.
ADF reminded the school system that they “can’t pick and choose which messages students are allowed to express and which they aren’t. And they certainly can’t single out religious speech for worse treatment than other types of speech.”’https://www.faithwire.com/2021/05/17/school-blocks-little-girl-from-jesus-loves-me-mask-but-her-faith-is-still-making-an-impact/?utm_source=cbn&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=news-eu-faithwire&utm_content=20210517-2349404&inid=5f29ebc0-7f5b-eb11-b823-005056af0da1
‘“Free speech” is a term that gets thrown around quite often these days. But what is it? And why is it important?
The freedom of speech is simply the ability to say, write, or otherwise express what you truly believe without fear of punishment or retaliation from the government.
This freedom is protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.” The authors of our Constitution believed it was very important to protect this freedom.
And for good reason.
Speaking is how you express your thoughts. So if government officials can force you to say things you don’t believe, you no longer control the content of your speech and thus lose the freedom to live consistently with the principles you treasure most.
Government officials who seek to control your speech are trying to control what you think and what you do. And that’s contrary to the very idea of freedom. Not only that, but it’s contrary to the dignity of the human person. Our thoughts not only cause our actions, they are the most personal possession we have.
While upholding human dignity is the most important reason to protect this freedom, it certainly isn’t the only reason.
If you want good ideas to have influence, you’ll support protections for the freedom of speech. The best ideas often come from the robust discussion and debate of many different ideas.
And this cannot exist without free speech.
What the freedom of speech is not.
Some might argue that the freedom of speech is just a piece of rhetoric used by those who want to say hateful things. But this is false.
Free speech is a right that every individual possesses as a human being created by God.
And this right isn’t just for those with certain beliefs. In fact, that’s the whole point. There are as many unique perspectives as there are people. Our ability to share our perspective with others is what free speech is all about.
As the Declaration of Independence says, “all men are created equal.” But this doesn’t mean that all ideas are equal. There will always be bad or even false ideas that we must address.
But the answer isn’t to shut down debate or silence the people sharing those ideas. The answer is more speech.
We can use our own speech to answer hateful statements with good and truthful ones. We can debate ideas we consider bad with those we believe are good.
No matter what, we need those with whom we disagree to be involved in the conversation.
Debate with our ideological opponents sharpens our ideas and may even allow us to see the truth in a new and unexpected way. Not only that, but our opponents’ right to free speech should be protected because they are human beings with dignity just like us. And if their right is taken away, then ours can easily be taken away too.
It has been said that “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”’ https://www.adflegal.org/blog/what-is-freedom-of-speech
