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: Four-year-old rejected by Make-A-Wish for not getting COVID shot

4-year-old cancer boy rejected by Make-A-Wish
Four-year-old rejected by Make-A-Wish because
he hasn’t gotten the jab

Now they’re coming for the children: The Make-A-Wish Foundation has rejected the wish of a four-year-old cancer patient to go to Disneyworld because the boy has not gotten his COVID shots.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is refusing to grant 4-year-old cancer patient Rocco DiMaggio’s wish to go to Disneyworld — all because he is not vaccinated.

Rocco and his two-year-old brother are not yet even eligible for the jab.

“It was a punch in the gut,” Rocco’s mom told Newsmax about Make-A-Wish Foundation canceling the Disneyworld opportunity.

Not only do children regardless of individual medical conditions have to get the mRNA shots, according to Make-a-Wish, the group’s policy says all family members who receive air travel must be vaccinated. The mRNA shots have thus far failed to deliver as promised and there is no long-term safety data on vaccinating children. [emphasis mine]

The highlighted sentence illustrates the utter brainlessness of the Foundation’s policy. Even if the parents were gung-ho to get the shots, which they are not, it can’t be administered to him at this time because of FDA regulations.

That’s not all however. The stupidity of this is further illustrated by these additional facts:

Even if Rocco were old enough, his mother told Newsmax she is not sure she would give him the vaccine, since he’s already had COVID twice and thus has natural immunity. He is also immunocompromised.

Getting the COVID shots now could also seriously threaten Rocco’s already very fragile health.

“He had his left kidney removed because of a tumor that had grown,” she said. “He had five rounds of chemo, five cycles of antibodies, 14 rounds of radiation and seven vaccine shots. And he’s been smiling throughout his entire journey – even on his worst days.”

The seven vaccine shots he has received were not for COVID, but were specifically designed to target his particular cancer. Adding an experimental additional drug to this mix is very unwise. For Make-A-Wish to demand it indicates a level of idiocy at that organization that is practically inconceivable.

According to the article at the first link, one charity, Wigs & Wishes and the company Millenium Systems International, have stepped up to make Rocco’s wish come true. It seems that if you wish to give money to this kind of charity, your money will be better spent sending it to Wigs & Wishes than Make-A-Wish.

    The Swedish King, Queen, Crown Princess and her Prince, as well as the prime minister and the two party leaders who get the most attention in media, were all tested positive for Covid-19 this week. They were all triple jabbed and they were the seven most outspoken for fake vaccinations and restrictions of humans right because of the Covid “danger”.

    Isn’t that what they call in bowling: A perfect strike? ;-)

  • BtB’s Original Mark

    Another heart wrenching addition to Mr. Z.’s near daily chronicle of ‘Blacklists’, ‘Pushback’, & ‘They’re coming for you next’. If you are a diligent reader of BtB, You’ll agree that Bob has shown that the American nation & the American Citizen are in serious trouble. So then the natural follow on questions are “What is to be done?”, and “What political and civic tools are available to the citizenry as they push back?”. Furthermore, ‘which tools as ‘guaranteed’ by our Constitution are truly robust?’. On this last question I think we’ll be swimming upstream because IMO, for many in our government and media, the Constitution is not respected. So we have for example weak protection of freedom of speech and the right to petition our government. I do hope that state governments can address voting reform so that only valid votes are cast and counted. For that effort to be successful, we will need to ramp up the fight against the Mainstream Media’s claim there were no ‘irregularities’ found in the audit of the 2020 Election results (e.g. Maricopa County, AZ). If you live in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, please support your state level politicians that are fighting for the integrity of your vote.

    Absolute total failure of their mission.

    They deal with children who are immune deficient or immuno compromised all the time. For many of such children, vaccines are not an options.

    Political rubbish.

    This was the unkindest cut of all. Meanwhile, nursing home deaths were undercounted by Mich. Chief Executive- Caitlyn Jenner…putting the goob in gubernatorial.

  • Alex Andrite

    People !
    Who / what do you think are the spoils of this ongoing war ?
    The spoils are the very minds, hearts, and souls of our children.

    We are one generation from extinction.

    Who said “any organization not dedicated to being conservative will, over time, become left-wing lunatics”?. Looks like both the Ronald Macdonald House & Make-A-Wish foundation are now being run by socialist/democrats who put rules ahead of people! Tell everyone you know not to give any money to these organizations.
