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: Illinois threatens to cancel doctor’s license because it doesn’t like his opinions

The Bill of Rights cancelled in Illinois
No first amendment in Illinois

They’re coming for you next: State regulators in Illinois are threatening to take away a medical license of a doctor, Jeremy Heinrichs, because he has publicly challenged the mask mandate being imposed by his state government.

In a provided statement, Henrichs said: “I have considered authoritative medical evidence that questions the necessity of mandatory masking in our schools. As a result, the [Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation] has threatened my medical licensure unless I expressly support and enforce a mask mandate for all students.

“The [IDFPR] has commanded me to ‘toe the line’ or suffer personal and professional consequences,” he added.

…In a separate email, a state medical investigator, whose name was redacted from the email, said a complaint filed against Henrichs “appears to be a parent or concerned citizen who did not agree with the doctor’s opinion on the masking motion for schools. That would fall under the unprofessional conduct part of the medical practice act,” the email said. “What the medical disciplinary board wants to know is if the doctor will support and enforce the mask mandate by the Governor.”


To put it bluntly, the Democrats that control the state government of Illinois are announcing to the world that you must not question their authority, you must not challenge their opinions, and you cannot have a mind of your own. You will obey, or you will be destroyed.

While this might sound extreme, it is only the beginning. The Democrats have been moving in this direction for the past decade. Their stance on most issues is indefensible, so they simply cannot allow anyone to publicly challenge it or it will fall like a house of cards. Their only answer is thus to silence dissent, like all totalitarians.

Now it is squelching dissent on social media and threatening the medical license of doctors. Next it will be arrests and imprisonment. And if Americans do not fight back it will be worse after that.

Which party do you vote for? If you still vote Democrat then you believe in tyranny and oppression. And if I hurt your feelings by saying so, that’s too damn bad. Hurting your feelings is harmless. Participating in a party that is aggressively destroying the careers and lives of others because they disagree with you is vile and ugly. Your feelings should be hurt. The pain might actually get you to wake up and reconsider the political party you blindly support.

    In the Global American Empire Dr. Heinrichs is not allowed to go against controlled COVID narratives. Fighting mask mandates is step one, and Doctors will need to stand up to really practice medicine in the Age of Covid.
    Here is an alternative set of medical guidelines promoted by Dr. Malone. The national media focuses on medical propaganda and refuses to seriously address this.

    Options to deal with COVID
    1. Provide personal risk assessment tools – both paper and apps
    2. Provide clear and complete data on vaccine risks
    3. Aggressively offer vaccinations and boosters to high risk individuals
    4. Allow Doctors to practice evidence- based medicine guided by lab tests. This is needed because COVID is complex, MULTI FACTORIAL DISEASE WITH DIFFERENT STAGES. Need to address prevention by boosting immune systems, immediate treatments at onset, treatments when COVID is at full attack mode, etc.
    5. Use sequence- independent, stage-appropriate medicines, and do not undertreat. Use in combination Ivermectin, Famotidine/Celecoxib, Fluvoxamine, Apixaban, , etc). Expand ‪access to monoclonal antibodies‬.
    6. Emphasize treating patients as soon as they develop disease with outpatient care
    7. Stop censoring and blocking repurposed drug development
    8. Promote precision evidence-based medicine guided by lab test values.
    9. Fast track antivirals with phase 2/3 trials

    Sorta surprised ‘they’ immediately dropped the big-hammer and threatened his licensure directly.

    In the non-political, more subtle realm, if they want you gone, they general send the DEA to your office and review the last 50 patients to whom you prescribed any type of pain-killers, then suspend your DEA license to RX controlled substances.

  • Well, we know ‘damn’ is legal.

    Look around, folks. Make some decisions. We’re here.

    In Mobile AL Dr Valentine won’t treat the unvaxxed. Time for a doc swap

  • Provide clear and complete data on vaccine risks
    First step: Stop calling it a “vaccine”; it’s not. Beyond that, “complete data” is not available because the trial is still ongoing. The enrollment numbers are astonishing large for a phase 3 human trial, so the data, when we have it, should be good.

    He doesn’t have to support anything a non doctor came up with.
    And the medical board has no power to enforce a non medical rule implemented by a politician.

    Would the medical board support the sterilization of retarded people if it was ordered by the governor?

    “What the medical disciplinary board wants to know is if the doctor will support and enforce the mask mandate by the Governor.”
    My response might be: “Well, I was slightly supportive of the idea. Until you made it a dictatorial pronouncement. Now my answer is ‘H*** no!’ Because anyone that focused on trying to force other people to obey them is not really working as a scientist.”

    If ‘retarded’ was defined by the radical Progressives, sure!

  • Sorta surprised ‘they’ immediately dropped the big-hammer and threatened his licensure directly.

    Wayne, my daughter is a school nurse in IL, and she recently informed me that the Pritzker regime is swinging another big hammer at resistant school districts – loss of accreditation.

    I think they know the people – particularly downstate – are fed up with the mask-querade, and they’re turning the coercion up to 11.

    This has already happened to a doctor in Oregon back in December of 2020. The Oregon Medical Board suspended Dr. Steven LaTulippe’s license and ordered the family practice doctor to “stop practicing medicine until further order of the board.” All of this because he vocally disagreed with the Governor’s mask mandate.

    Another one…
    “Steve Cortes learned the hard way when he posted a Tweet that went against the face mask narrative. The Tweet itself featured a quote and a link that prompted Twitter to suspend his account, potentially indefinitely”

    The lack of data is in…

    “Witczak said it’s concerning that full approval is based on only six months’ worth of data — despite clinical trials designed for two years — and there’s no control group after Pfizer offered the product to placebo participants before the trials were completed.”

    “They know they can’t win this argument on the science and that’s why they had to abolish the public process and independent oversight,” said Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “They believe themselves so powerful now that they are stripping off all pretenses that this is about public health, and are baldly revealing the corruption.”
