Today’s blacklisted American: Boston policewoman suspended for leading opposition to COVID shot mandate

Coming to your town in America soon!
Death camps are certainly coming for the unclean unvaccinated.

They’re coming for you next: Shana Cotone, the Boston policewoman who helped form and heads Boston First Responders United, a group for Boston municipal workers that has sued to block the city’s COVID shot mandate on all workers, has been put on administrative leave by her department and is now under “an internal affairs investigation”.

Cottone said BPD officers came to her house and took her badge and gun Saturday morning. “They’re trying to come after me — to silence me,” Cottone told the Herald. “They’re not going to silence me.”

Cottone’s group is not the only one suing. It is joined by her own union, the “Boston Police Superior Officers Federation, and other city public-safety groups.” All were involved in a public protest last week against the mandate, unilaterally imposed by Democratic Party Mayor Michelle Wu.

How dare she and these organizations exercise their legal right to protest! What terrorists! Their actions are clearly an insurrection that must be squashed now, by whatever means possible. And if simply investigating her and threatening her is not enough, a quick round-up by the authorities of Cottone and her evil insurrectionists should quickly silence them. And if that doesn’t work the city government can always build gas chambers and execute them all. That will surely be a final solution to such evil and treasonous protests that are clearly the cause of the new wave of Wuhan flu infections.

Moreover, how can Boston tolerate such a person on its police force? So what she was lauded in 2013 for saving a woman’s life at the finish line of Boston Marathon bombing. So what she was again honored in 2015 for entering a burning building to save two residents. So what that she has had an unblemished and highly decorated career as a policewoman.

What counts is her subservience to orders and unconstitutional health mandates ordered arbitrarily by her superiors. We must all follow orders, at all times. That this woman and others are disobeying such orders cannot be tolerated in our new woke utopia of socialist and communist ideology. The sooner these malcontents are removed the sooner our country can become that paradise that will surely follow!

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    In 2022 I proclaim:
    ‘They’re coming for you next, So Embrace the Suck!’

    Austin Bay wrote the book ‘Embrace the Suck: A Pocket Guide to Milspeak’, and commented:
    “Embrace the suck” isn’t merely a wisecrack; it’s a raw epigram based on encyclopedic experience. Face it, soldier. I’ve been there. This ain’t easy. Now let’s deal with it”.

    There are plenty of reasons for people who are healthy to resist taking into their body a still by definition experimental drug. Plenty of reasons:

    *Recent Podcast Shows Bob Saget Telling Fan: “I went to the pharmacy the other day and I got my booster shot”

    “On December 13, the comedian posted an interesting conversation with a guest calling into his podcast. In the clip he posted to Instagram, Saget tells the fan he just got the [COVID] booster.”

    *CDC Director Walensky Admits the Vast Majority of COVID Deaths Had Not One, Not Two, Not Three – But “At Least FOUR” Comorbidities

    * Massive 145-Country Study Shows Sharp INCREASE of Transmission and DEATH After Introduction of COVID Vaccines

    * “Every Shot, I Can’t Breathe” – Fully Vaccinated Tennis Star Nikoloz Basilashivili Drops Out of Sydney Cup Due to Breathing Difficulties

    * 14-Year-Old Israeli American Girl Suffers and Dies from COVID Vaccine – Makes a Video of Her Story Five Days Before Her Death

    * Average number of soccer player deaths from 2000 to 2020 about 5 to 6 per year. Number of soccer player deaths in 2021 / 22, about 22.


    (These operators within our own government have purposefully screwed the entire response to Covid, and their end game appears to be tagging every American like a cow would as well as all others in the “Civilized” world. Why? Because they are junior Nazi’s. They cannot help themselves.)

    A noble lie for the greater good? Or a lie to manipulate and control in the Globalist model? IMO it’s the latter.

    This is a very enlightening interview with a retired very senior chief Pfizer scientist, (and he loved working for and with Pfizer, he is not a disgruntled former employee) Dr. Mike Yeadon, and he clearly states that, Fauci is lying, the CDC is lying, the WHO is lying as is every other government agency in all of the first world countries concerning Covid and the “Vaccine”.

    Covid 19 Lies? Pfizer Chief Scientist, Jan 2022 – Dr Mike Yeadon: 19 min.

    His ultimate conclusion? This massive push by the many countries in the world is to force everyone to become vaccinated in order to ultimately create a digital passport and identification data base system for the entire world. Now where have you heard that before?

    Covid and the vaccine is not about what you think it’s about? I did not say that real people with the real-world
    professional executive scientific experience in virology is saying that. Why do things driven by fear seem like they do not make sense? Because they don’t make sense. In the end there is a reason for everything, trust in your own common sense and judgement.–~D

    The doctors are part of the Green-Malthusian take over. Do some searchs on how 1 in 3 hospital deaths are due to medical mistakes…Journal of Patient Safety. For years…doctors thought that they were unassailable gods-and the branch covidians have set patients rights back 50 years. I thought RFK a of these that thought everything natural is good and everything artificial bad…but as a real democrat…he saw how sick it is for doctors to make 100 grand a year off the working poor. I remember drug reps in waiting rooms…and doctors keep you coming back. So I say BAN SUBSCRIPTIONS!
