Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

Today’s blacklisted American: Army cadet with natural immunity forced from West Point

No longer defended at West Point
The Constitution: No longer defended at West Point.

Despite having had COVID so that she has natural immunity and is better protected from getting it again as well as passing on to others, West Point cadet Hannah MacDonald was forced out of the Army because of its oppressive discriminatory policies against those who refuse to get COVID shots.

The litany of wrongs MacDonald was forced to undergo violated numerous laws, all of which our modern McCarthyites care little about.

  • The Army revealed her medical history to all, in violation of HPPA requirements, with one officer nonchalantly stating “HIPAA isn’t the be-all, end-all.”
  • The mandates forcing the COVID shots on her violated the Nuremberg Code, a signed treaty of the U.S. and the law of the land. When she noted this, she “was told this small legal distinction didn’t matter.”
  • The Army treated her and others who would not get the shots as second class citizens, discriminating against them in numerous ways while re-establishing the worst forms of segregation against them, all in violation of numerous civil rights legislation.

This quote from MacDonald’s story at the link best illustrates the Army’s insane policy:

I was subjected to this treatment while knowing that some of my fellow cadets had an adverse reaction to the vaccine, including life-changing heart problems. One of these adverse reactions resulting in heart issues happened on the Crew team. That same team kicked my best friend off for being unvaccinated, with her coach saying it “went against [her] ethics” to coach an unvaccinated cadet.

Around the same time, guidance was pushed down that we could not even attend our religious clubs. While this guidance then changed shortly after, no one questioned the unethical nonsense of telling cadets they could sit shoulder to shoulder in a classroom to study calculus, but it was too much of a “health threat” to have us in the same classroom six hours later discussing the one thing that gave us hope and comfort.

The coercion grew worse when the official vaccine mandate paperwork came down on Sept. 27, 2021. The other unvaccinated cadets and I were escorted to an auditorium at 5:45 a.m. We were not allowed to leave without signing a document acknowledging that we were disobeying direct orders.

We had a choice to either be vaccinated, separate, or apply for a religious or medical exemption. At the meeting, we were denied any legal counsel. There were no judge advocate generals or legal advisers available for us to talk to before signing this document, and I was personally told by a colonel that I could not receive counsel before signing the documents.

Read her entire article at the link. I can’t possibly capture the egregious and unjust COVID policies of the Army, without quoting everything she wrote.

MacDonald is no longer training to be an Army officer. She has left the Army because she:

could no longer stay at an institution that claims to fight for freedom while using people as puppets to convince the public to give up their freedoms for a political show. Title VII of the U.S. Civil Rights Act prohibits religious discrimination, and while I am by no means against vaccines, I am against unjust mandates, vaccine passports, the violation of HIPAA, and the violation of personal rights to bodily autonomy.

Those who replace her will likely be all in agreement with the Army’s illegal, irrational, and hateful policy, which means this military is no longer there to defend American lives and the Constitution, but instead to support the leftist agenda demanding that everyone adhere to its fear-driven COVID policies.

It will not be long before the political bosses in Washington will realize they can wield that weapon against everyone. Be very afraid.

    Upside down world…
    “… yet the CDC is actively crushing the rights of millions of naturally immune individuals in this country if they do not get the vaccine on the assumption they can transmit the virus. But despite clear proof the vaccinated spread the virus, the CDC lifts restrictions on the vaccinated?! That is dystopian.”

    Siri added:

    “Every single peer reviewed study has found that the naturally immune have far greater than 99% protection from having COVID, and this immunity does not wane. In contrast, the COVID vaccine provides, at best, 95% protection and this immunity wanes rapidly. I am no mathematician, but a constant 99% seems preferable to a 95% that quickly drops.”

    That’s simply not true and easily debunked. Refer to the third bullet point at this link:

    And read on if you dare for more simple explanation about why getting vaccinated is overwhelmingly more preferable to relying on some assumed protection from a previous infection. Just because you got lucky and survived once, doesn’t mean you’re invincible.

    As far as a future soldier that can’t follow orders, who would want them?

    “That’s simply not true and easily debunked. Refer to the third bullet point at this link:”

    Q: Where exactly do they get their long term data that says that a man made faulty “vaccine”, and that is irrefutable now, is superior to natural immunity from?

    A: They can have no long term data. It does not exist.

    Your immune system on many levels codes for 29 proteins on the virus, the “Vaccine” codes for one as I understand it one, the spike protein.

    After you have had the virus you are less than 1% likely to reacquire Covid.

    Patients that contracted SARS COV 1, which happened 20 years ago, were recently tested (Real data) at the 17 year point. And they still had full immunity. Why would SARS COV #2 and your human immune system be any or much different?

    Where did they get the long term data that tells you that your natural immunity which is the product of 3.5 billion years of evolution is inferior to a single protein “Vaccine” which has clearly been demonstrated to be waning and has other issues and is considered “Leakey” and causes the many other issues, by the data.

    What would make you, Edward Munster, come to the conclusion that you have arrived at? Fauci told you? The CDC told you?

    Are you in possession of any common sense?

    (Standard disclaimer: I am not an anti vaxxer. I suggest that it might be a good idea if you are older and have some of the comorbidities that result in a negative Covid result you might consider to choose to get at least one shot? I am not a doctor though. But I do have common sense)

    Bullet points?

  • Cotour

    “gish gallop. ” ?

  • Cotour

    “What on earth does the 29 proteins vs one prove? Obviously an engineered vaccine would target the most efficient pathways to effective treatment. A sniper doesn’t use a shotgun.”

    Do I really have to explain that to you?

    “There you go with your “leaking” again. That means nothing to the conversation. ”

    You are not aware that this / these “Vaccines” are considered by the people who design and engineer them that they consider them “Leaky”?

    One potential with all of these “Vaccines” and the boosters because they are faulty is that they have the potential to teach the virus how to get around the “Vaccine” solution. To leak.

    At what point will you say, no thank you, I have had enough “Vaccine”? Because if you were to go by what Fauci has to say about it it has the potential to have to be administered every 6 months. How many for you?

    Do you understand that this new technology in vaccines is literally *NEW* and has never before been used on the human host?

    Its never before been used on human beings, its a new technology, and you can not get enough of it.

    What are the long term effects of the spike protein? Which by the way turns out to be cyto toxic.

    It is unknown and it is unknowable. And that is why if you were to use it you would use it on your older population and not 5 year olds.

    You both have got to be Democrats.

    Whether Eddie Munster / Jimmy Page were doing a job pumping out the party line, or was just an uniformed member of the public / tool, I suggest you pay attention to the people who are dealing with the issue in the real world and not the corporate / governmental agencies that clearly have political / profit agendas.

    “….her coach saying it “went against [her] ethics” to coach an unvaccinated cadet.”

    It is unethical for a thief to return stolen goods.
    It is unethical for Josef Mengele to heal Jewish patients.
    And now it is obviously unethical for the United States military to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the laws pursuant to it.

    Robert F Kennedy made it to Coast to Coast yesterday in a two hour interview. It was very enlightening.
    One of the points (among many) with some of the statistics that are used to show the vaccine is so effective.
    Two died in the placebo group, where one died with the vaccine.
    Two is 100% more than one, which let them claim it to be 100% effective.
    Skipping to the conclusion, for every “one person” that is saved by the vaccination… “Four die” from heart related problems.
    Even as I write this, the news on the radio at 1 am just said that the COVID-19 infections among children, since they begin “vaccinating the children”, are up 32%… Just a coincidence.

    Thank you Cotour for posting the dark horse podcast, three hours long but worth it.
    You also posted in another thread about athletes in their prime dying of heart attacks. They’re calling this previously rare condition that’s now plaguing athletes, coaches, referees “A coincidence syndrome”
    “Over 75 known cases in the last 5 months”
    https://www.alternativenarrative.net/2021/11/long-list-of-athletes-who-suddenly-died.html?m=1

    In fact, if you put the words “died suddenly”, as a search, you’ll be amazed by the results. The person who told me this said google quit counting “athletes that had died suddenly” after 100…

  • Cotour

    “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidences”. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    There are no conspiracies, and there are no coincidences.

    Unfortunately, we the people are always behind the curve. And given that fact its always wise to do your own due diligence and make up your own mind and make your own choices about what directly affects you. In a country where there are seldom consequences for actions taken by those who are empowered, YOU will without doubt suffer the consequences of the choices, made by you and made for you.

    Common sense is not always so common.

    Real time, 10 minutes ago, Dr. Robert Malone Covid prediction:

    In about two weeks or so, lead by the EU and what is going on right now related to Covid, disease will run through our country and it will not matter whether you are “vaccinated” or not.

    The only question is “If those who are “Vaccinated” will become more at risk”.

    Now that is a sobering read on what may well be going on in the real world in America very soon. Not the fraudulent and manipulative, Fauci / CDC / FDA world.
