Medical Martial Law in Ventura County
Commentary by G. Edward Griffin, a resident of Ventura County:
At a press conference on May 4, 2020, Ventura county’s Public-Health Director, Dr. Robert Levin, announced there were 19 coronavirus deaths in the county1 [compared to a typical death rate of 12 for seasonal flu2]. However, in light of the fact that doctors are instructed by public-health services to list COVID-19 as cause-of-death when other conditions are known to be the cause3, even the low count of 19 could be exaggerated.
A study by the University of Southern California found that the COVID-19 death rate in LA county was no greater than seasonal flu.4 In response to this low fatality rate, Dr. Levin decreed that the lockdown, not only would continue, but would be intensified.
IS THIS STUPIDITY OR CRIMINALITY?
The reason for this bizarre decision became evident when Levin announced he would be implementing a new federal law called TRACE (Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone). The main feature of the law is that local governments will receive federal grants if they follow policies recommended by the CDC.5 To qualify, they must intensify lockdowns, introduce a draconian surveillance system called contact tracing, and prepare to administer mandatory vaccines. If you ever have
wondered why governors, mayors, and public-health bureaucrats maintain lockdown even when the health risk is no greater than the flu, it’s all about the money.
Here is what Dr. Levin and his minions have in mind for us lowly citizens and taxpayers. In his message to the Board of Supervisors, he said:
We are beginning a program today ‒ and it’s a pilot program which will certainly grow into something larger and larger ‒ and that is a community contact-tracing program. A ‘contact’ is a person who has been exposed to someone that we document to have the COVID infection. Those people are immediately isolated. …
The purpose of this program is to bring on [hire] people – we’re going to start with ten people; we may bring on up to fifty or even more as the program grows. As we do more testing, we will find more and more people who have COVID-19, and again, we will isolate every one of them and we will find every one of their contacts, and we will make sure that they stay quarantined, and we will check in with them every day.
It’s not just our county that’s bringing more people on. There are going to be thousands of people hired who will be these contact investigators throughout the state. And this is occurring in many, many other states as well.
Some of the people we find are going to have trouble being isolated. For instance, if they live in a home where there’s only one bathroom, and there are three or four other people living there who don’t have COVID infection, we’re not going to be able to keep that person in that home. Every person we are isolating needs to have their own bathroom. So, we will be moving people like this into other kinds of housing.6
Notice the phrase: “We’re not going to be able to keep that person in that home.” These bureaucrats think they have a right to oversee our lives and “keep” us wherever they wish. Notice the words “that home”. Not their home, but that home, as though all homes belong to the state and can be allocated “as required” by edict.
If we do nothing to prevent it, this is our future and, once established, it will never end. Levin told us it “will certainly grow into something larger and larger.” The policy papers of the CDC and the fine print of the laws reveal a plan to crush society so it can be reconstructed into pure collectivism in which we become worker-ants, without liberty or privacy, obeying technocrats who control every aspect of our lives. The threat of a deadly virus is theater to make it seem like a good idea.
CALL TO ACTION
Is it possible to restore the America we love? Yes, it is, but we need a plan, principles to guide us, and about one percent of the population to make it happen. We already have the plan and the principles and now are assembling the one percent into a coalition. We call it the Red Pill Project. If passive slavery is not your style, your next step is to visit the website shown below and learn about the power and promise of Red Pill University.
