Like many Australians, my wife and eldest daughter are being forced to get “vaxxed” in order to keep their jobs and successfully finish two years of study.

They are victims of totalitarianism, and I’m as mad as hell about it.

By forcing our hand, the Government has turned my family’s strong opposition to totalitarian anti-covid measures, into a fight for survival.

The Government is forcing our hand because like a large number of Australians without land of their own, we can’t refuse the vax, then “live off the land”.

Additionally, sacrificing jobs for the “cause” would mean no reimbursement for holidays or long-service owed, no chance of future employment.

It would also mean being held back from receiving government support, because they are deemed “able to work, but unwilling to do so.

We lean hard on our faith, and could live on beans, rice and fickle charity, but we’d be living without shelter while doing so.

We could lean on family, if we had family that we could lean on without being a burden to them.

For me, being force out of a job means being forced back into the abusive generational welfare cycle I’ve spent my entire working life trying to liberate my family from.

This would be a soul-crushing move back into total government dependency.

Even then any fall-back onto the Australian taxpayer would until the pre-requisite for Centrelink became “no jab, no pay” (a policy implemented by the “the vax is voluntary” hypocrites in the current government back in 2016. One that very well could be extended to the COVID-19 “vaccines”).

In effect, my family would have been forced out of work. Only to find ourselves being forced into getting “vaccinated.” In order to keep welfare payments, we were forced to become dependent on.

Unlike the majority, my family are being forced to be “vaccinated” not so that we can maintain a lifestyle, but so that we can stay out of the welfare cycle. 

Since August, when the subjective Education decrees were issued, we’ve agonised over our response to the current regime’s abuse of power.

After the New South Wales Supreme Court loss last Friday, we were hit with the urgency of having to redraw the line in the sand.

We were forced to establish a new frontline.

It was either do this, or face becoming totally dependent on an authoritarian government, who are already walking all over us, with their blitzkrieg fanatical takeover of medical autonomy.

My wife and daughter have no choice.

As Bob Cotton’s recent Caldron Pool piece spectacularly illustrated, there is zero informed consent at play here. The government, with the support of big media, and a gullible public, have made it so.

There is no way to maintain the same level of resistance. So, our non-compliant approach has to change.

Non-compliance is not new to us. It began for me in resisting an abusive father and the generational welfare cycle – one which is not much different to the authoritarianism we’re seeing today.

I was the first in my family and extended family to finish high school and attain the Higher School Certificate, and latter a college degree.

This divergence from the dysfunctional norm culminated in the revolution of baptism.  It manifested in getting married young, staying married and having five kids.

This non-compliance made me few friends, when managing a Christian bookshop for over a decade, I preferred to recommend customers buy Keith Green, not Joel Osteen.

This lifestyle of non-compliance resonates throughout my family’s 12-years of homeschooling.

My point is, for those in the same position as my family, there are many tones, shapes and paths to non-compliance.

In the current climate, every vaxxed, forced-to-be-vaxxed, unvaxxed and never-will-be-vaxxed, “Hell, no!” to the current authoritarianism matters.

There’s little chance of victory if the unvaxxed are discouraging and demoralising those who are forced to get vaxxed into not participating in both prayer and protest, because the unvaxxed entertained the sin of self-righteous posturing.

We can’t play the same segregation game. If we do all is lost. Faith in the face of oppression involves sighing with the wounded, not self-promotion.

In other words, people shouldn’t be forced ti drop-out and give-up because some drop-kick told you that being “vaxxed”, “unvaxxed”, or being forced into getting the “vaxx” somehow disqualified them from participating in pro-freedom prayer and protest.

Every “hell, no!” matters.

The rape of medical autonomy by an authoritarian power who has no checks or balances, doesn’t bode well for ALL Australians.

Nothing’s changed in regards to me and my family’s convictions.

I’ve given my all to this fight, and I’ve been doing so since at least March last year via Caldron Pool. (See my piece dated March 2020: ‘Are oppressive totalitarian measures necessary in order to fight against coronavirus?’)

I’d much prefer being in a better position to oppose this madness. Despite how much we’ve prayed, asking God to power alternatives, we’re not able to continue resisting responsibly.

I’ve made and continue to make sacrifices, turning up, even if, and when haters attack, or people simply just don’t tune in.

Another household family member is currently without work because she’s not “vaccinated”.

COVID-19 required a scalpel, government used an axe!

I take no pride in the “vaccines” or being forced down this pathway. I detest the slimy smiles from politicians, who, accompanied by TV Doctors, boast about their smoke and mirror schemes.

The Australian Prime Minister is the worst of the lot. Scott Morrison had the chance to be a statesman, he chose middle-management instead.

To quote Pauline Hanson’s astute summary,

‘Scott Morrison is impotent…He’s too gutless to admit the Constitution forbids the Commonwealth from authorising civil conscription with respect to medical services, so he lets the states and territories trample all over our right to choose, take away our jobs, separate our families and isolate our communities.’

One of the greatest lies imposed on the Australian people by Scott Morrison is his assertions that the Covid-19 vaccines are voluntary.

My family and I had every hope that the NSW supreme court would reject the vaccine mandates and uphold the Australian constitution’s ban on medical conscription. When the aloof, government appointed, Justice dismissed the cases, we had to respond with plan B.

While some of us are being forced into getting the “vaccination,” we don’t do so quietly. By sticking with a policy of responsible resistance we are still acting in a way that honours God.

This means acknowledging, as I have above, our limitations, and fighting back within our means.

Thus, being capable of fiercer non-compliance because we’ve regrouped and closed a few fronts we were no longer capable of fighting on.

We do this in the full knowledge that for those living under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, what looks like defeat, can be the birth of a greater victory.

It appears that some think Philippians 4:19 reads: “My government will supply all my needs according to its riches and glory.”

What it actually says is: “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

There’s a big difference.

Daddy government does not equal Father God.

The New South Wales Premier, Dominic Perrottet would no doubt agree with this observation.

In a 14-minute interview with SkyNews host Alan Jones, the Premier declared,

“As a [classical] Liberal, the less government intervention the better.”

Posed as a question, Jones reminded the Premier of support he’d given over a decade ago for Winston Churchill’s position opposing

‘The socialist model [as] the equal distribution of poverty not wealth. [As well as opposing] plans for more social engineering more welfare handouts and the continual obsession with our rights at the expense of our responsibilities.’

The new Premier acknowledged how “most people don’t want to live off the state,” and how “they want freedom to succeed. Freedom to prosper.”

 “These are fundamental values that I believe in,” he said. 

Perrottet then qualified this by signalling how Government intervention in times of crisis, such as COVID-19, are the exception.

He asserted,

“There will always be a role for the state to support those who are vulnerable, so that no one slips through the gaps, and that’s where the state intervention should be.”

Perrottet repeatedly said he advocates opening up New South Wales “as quickly, and as safely as possible.”

The Premier also congratulated the State for getting “vaccinated”. He failed to acknowledge how his government’s dogged totalitarian obsession with “no jab, no job” mandates met “vaccination” quotas.

He alluded to who was behind the latter, stating his government did “what the health teams asked [them] to do, and followed that advice.”

The current roadmap, Perrottet said, was designed by ex-Deputy Premier, (and Berejiklian chief CCP-19 head-kicker) John Barilaro on the advice of government health officials.

In other words, a greater easing of restrictions in NSW will come when forced “vaccinations” push the current stat up over the 80% quota set by unelected health bureaucrats.

Nodding at a strong commitment to opening the State, Perrottet noted 20 months’ worth of “sacrifices” made by the people of NSW; reasserting, “as I’ve said before, people born in this nation are born free.”

While there’s a lot to like about the new Premier, the people of New South Wales would be well justified in showing extreme caution.

For example, this week he presided over New South Wales becoming the first state in Australia to enforce segregation, demand employers fire staff on medical grounds, and discriminate against those they provide services to.  

On a personal note.

My daughter was given three working days to get vaccinated or face unemployment.

Another family member faces being forced into unemployment and denied the right to her qualification after years of hard work trying to attain it.

In addition, another close relative was told this morning that his regular meeting with a mental health professional would have to be suspended until the 1st of December. The date some of the “public health” mandates are alleged to expire.

(He may also face setbacks in his battle with mental health problems. All in the name of “public health orders.”)

Another faces the “convert or die” dilemma before being fired for non-compliance.

Why? Because, contrary to the data showing that the age group they belong to is more likely to be hit by lightning than it is of being hospitalised or dying of COVID-19, they land in the “unvaccinated” class.

Regardless of what the propaganda slogans preach, none of these people have a choice.

“Get the vax or face the axe” decrees are the equivalent of being told to do the slave master’s bidding, or face the slave master’s whip.

Where there is no freedom to say “no,” choice does not exist.

To be fair, Dominic Perrottet inherited a regime governed by policies dominated by unelected health bureaucrats, not the voice of the people.

The new Premier is undoubtedly stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Perrottet inherited a government obsessed with appeasing anti-freedom, and pro-lockdown worm tongues, both from the Left and within their “COVID crisis” media hungry, health bureaucrat team. 

The big Perrottet plus, is, that by all appearances he’s a far-sight better than Victoria’s Dictator of Doom, Daniel Andrews.

Reasserting governance of, by and for, the people, Perrottet made the right move in sideling government health advisor Dr. Kerry Chant.

Outside this, for now, his words only exist as nice, empty gestures.

Nice words and reassuring platitudes are welcome, but the NSW Premier needs to act on them.

Only a fool would think the words temporary government program are not an oxymoron.

For instance, while the NSW State of Emergency expires on 25th March 2022, contrary to the December 1stfreedom for everyone” party-line, current public health orders do not have an official expiry date.

Parnell McGuinness in the SMH explained,

‘Legally, this never has to end. As long as the state and territory chief health officers who compose the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee deem COVID-19 an “unacceptable risk to public health” the emergency powers under which Australia is living can go on indefinitely.’ 

In sum, PHO legislation was changed last year. Meaning that PHOs have no provisional boundaries, checks or balances. This hands unelected bureaucrats, like Chief Health Officer’s the absolute power to enforce PHO’s indefinitely. (See section 2.16, p.25 Subsection 2B)

Perrottet has the chance to be a Ron DeSantis. To follow or borrow his example, leading, not only NSW, but also Australia away from its COVID communist trajectory.

In order to do this Perrottet must end both vaccine mandates and vaccine passports.

Perrottet should ditch the mad, then follow the few, on behalf of the brave.

Spurgeon described holy fear as an act that extends itself to happiness.

Holy fear, the Victorian preacher wrote, is the fear of God – ‘a quite grace which leads a man along a choice road, of which it is written, “No lion shall be there, neither shall any ravenous beast go up thereon.”

The fear of God is the beginning of ALL wisdom. Not worldly wisdom, which lends itself to vanity, but God’s wisdom which lends itself to the preservation of life, light and liberty.

Faith operates, not on a debilitating insecurity of the unknown, but on the certainty of the Word of God, grounded in God’s self-revealing.

God’s wisdom vs. Worldly wisdom.

The latter finds its home in tyranny, the former in the hearts of those who reject it.

Holy fear vs. Worldly fear is the choice between true wisdom and vanity.

God’s wisdom is the gift of true liberation. If, at the end of Holy Fear, man finds happiness, it’s because he’s granted freedom.

Holy fear isn’t a crushing fear. It’s a liberating essential that sets us free from a world demanding that we dumb ourselves down in order to fit in – that we package everything into a safe space, then fear everything, this includes fearing the fear of God.

We are faced with a clear choice between the fear of God, and the fear of man. We either embrace His ‘quiet grace’ and be led by it, or we embrace a self-righteous theology of glory and suffer the consequences for ditching wisdom in favour of vanity. Virtue signalling and self-promotion have no home in Holy Fear.

The old preacher when penning his own reflection on this referred to Proverbs, ‘Blessed is the one who fears the Lord always, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into calamity.’ (Proverbs 28:14)

The prior verse states, ‘Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.’

Followed by verse 15, which reads, ‘Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people.’

The wicked ruler demands to be feared, is stubborn, hardened, controlled by appetite and arrogance.

Proverbs states that though the wicked ruler stamps up and down, true wisdom will win the day. For from it springs true freedom.

It’s the wicked ruler who uses crushing fear, not God. It’s the wicked ruler, not God, who is stuck in his ways, and its the wicked ruler, not God, who crushes freedom.

We’re often given the image of God being a long bearded, grey, grumpy old man with a big stick at the ready, keen to slap people down.

Reconsider the stereotype.

Holy fear liberates. Worldly fear incarcerates. Wisdom governs the former. Vanity the latter.

What the past 18 months has revealed to the world is this:

In the post-modern era there’s an extremely thin line between an “expert” and an activist.

I’m in agreement with Peter Hitchens, “these past 18 months have been a major turn back towards what looks like superstition.”

Discussing mask mandates, and “mantras,” Hitchens told TalkRadio’s Mike Graham, “I wish more people would pay attention to the evidence.”

“The way in which people wear masks [for example], flapping around their chin, gaps in either side, putting masks in pockets, and taking them back out again…Anybody who knows anything about hospital mask wearing knows, you mustn’t touch them. As soon as you take them off the mask has to be replaced.”

For masks to be affective, “they have to be tightly fitted to the face, quite uncomfortably,” Hitchens explained.

 “It’s a simple point: even people who understand this must know these tokens people are wearing can’t do much good.”

Despite claims, “we know that there’s no proof masks protect from infection. If an infection can get in through a mask, why shouldn’t it be able to get out?”

Hitchen’s, paraphrasing Graham Brady, concludes, “masks are much more of a political symbol than an actual protection; people wear them as a sign of compliance with the new regime.”

Asked for his thoughts on the lifting of all COVID restrictions in Britain, on what was styled as “Freedom Day,” Hitchens replied, “it doesn’t feel all that different.”

Hinting at the lax attitude towards reason, in favour of a narrative, Hitchens stated,

“Nobody examines COVID statistics in a particularly rational of forensic fashion, because there’s this huge desire, both from the COVID Zero lobby, the people who want us permanently under control, and parts of the public living in fear.”

This fear, Hitchens asserts, “has gone in so deep; but fear is irrational, it’s completely immune to reason.”

For instance, offer any reasoned opposition, and “very rapidly the response turns to anger because the mob is safer in their certainty and fear than they would be in a reasoning world.”

Hitchens adds, “That’s what we’ve come to. Damage has been done to reason in politics, public life, broadcasting, universities, and elsewhere – which were already quite badly damaged.”

This is why, he argued, July 19 (aka ‘Freedom Day’) will attract attention from a lot of “COVID Zero people and the rest of the militants who want to permanently control [us] for “health reasons.” They’re waiting for their opportunity to say opening up on the 19th was wrong.”

They’ll “use figures obtained from tests looking for COVID numbers, that don’t necessarily indicate any actual illness. Then they’ll point to hospital admissions.”

Hospitalisation numbers are problematic.

Hitchens explained: “The last time I tried to look up the numbers of admissions, it showed people connected with COVID, had tested positive, but you couldn’t state that’s simply why they were in hospital, when they had been in hospital with something completely different.” 

Addressing the controversy over Dominic Cummings breaking his own lockdown rules, Hitchen quipped, “The people who devised these policies don’t believe their own propaganda. They don’t behave the way they tell us to behave!”

In June, Cummings, who is the former aid to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, alleged the Ministry of Health’s bureaucratic ineptitude had hindered Britain’s early COVID response.

Cummings also laid blame on Boris Johnson’s reluctance to buy into COVID hysteria. Accusing the Prime Minister of not acting early enough to lockdown Britain.

Hitchens recognises the importance of “really strong precautions.”

Precautions should be weighed and measured by sober-minded experts, not pathos driven activists posing as professionals.  

Left in the hands of the latter Western society will be set further adrift. Even if capable, it will not be able to reconnect with its moorings.  

Such as Thomas Sowell illustrated in his 2004 Empirical study of Affirmative Action,

‘Any “temporary” policy whose duration is defined by the goal of achieving something that has never been achieved before, anywhere in the world, could be more fittingly characterised as eternal.’

Vaccine passports serve a purpose for international travel. There’s little use or need for them on a domestic level.

Certification between countries where tried, time-tested, scientifically indisputable safe and effective vaccines are necessary for pragmatic tourism.

Abstracted from this context those passports are arguably problematic.

A “papers please” police state is built on a culture of suspicion. There is no due process. No mercy. No habeas corpus.

Domestic papers which grant permission for movement and privilege are also the substance of caste systems.

When discussing India’s Affirmative Action programs, Thomas Sowell explains that although India is the ‘world’s largest multi-ethnic society, it’s the most socially fragmented.’

There’s a hierarchy. The lowest are the “backward classes”. Such as ‘tribal groups outside the mainstream, and the “untouchables” (Dalits).’

India’s Dalits ‘constitute about 16% of the country’s total population, and members of the backward tribes another 8%.”

Sowell adds, ‘these two very poor and historically outcast groups are greatly outnumbered by members of the “other backward classes, who constitute 52% of all Indians.’

He continues, the “untouchables” have been outcastes in the literal sense of not being one of the four broad categories of castes recognised by the Hindu religion.’

Consequently, ‘they could not draw water from the same well used by caste Hindus – and, in some places, still could not in practice, decades after they had the legal right to do so.’

Dalits face restrictions and ostracization.

For instance, in the 1930s,

 ‘…discrimination against harijans (untouchables) extended to restrictions on entry into cafes and “eating houses,” access to village amenities like wells and cemeteries, and on the clothes they wore – their right to wear shoes was a frequent point of contention.’

Social stigma encourages social fragmentation.

Violence against outcastes, Sowell states, has been widespread.

Citing an article from 2001, in India’s The Hindu, ‘attacks on Dalits (most often orchestrated by collectives representing upper caste interests) and even massacres of men, women and children are indeed a regular feature in most parts of the country.’

Though these ‘horrors are in retreat’; affirmative action programs such as a quota system benefiting the “backward classes” has ‘eliminated what goodwill the upper castes had for the lower castes.’

‘Partly,’ Sowell writes, ‘because of an overestimation of the effectiveness of preferential policies’, which only end up benefited a very small amount of those they’re designed to help.

Sowell’s conclusion: preferential policies create ‘poisonous intergroup relations and [are] real dangers to the fabric of society.’

When it comes to advocates of the COVax domestic passport, two points of relevance exist.

First, the non-COVax are already being treated like they’re part of a “backward class.” Dismissed as “anti-vaxx”; “anti-science” troglodytes.

Why would anyone jump onto the same boat as a bully, who’s also happy for you to be oppressed, until you do as they do?

Secondly, pro-COVax privileges are preferential policies. This is affirmative action. In the words of believers: ‘positive discrimination.’

Why would any sane person support as system that divides the people, and feeds bad government?

Many in Australia’s media are vying for the very things that in any other context, that same media would be crying out against.

A caste system isn’t going to end COVID or the widespread COVID madness attached to it.

Such as India’s Hindu scheduled class structure. Where Dalits and the “backward classes” face (and have faced) restrictions and ostracization.

Is it religion or science that justifies this?

An apartheid between the COVaxxed and un-COVaxxed will carve a caste system in the fabric of Australian life.

This isn’t something to celebrate or welcome. It’s something to resist because precedent matters.

Informed consent should be respected. Any erosion of civil liberties, rejected. This isn’t hard to add up.

It’s one thing to encourage the COVax. It’s another to demonise others, and beg the Government to take away rights because other people have chosen to show more discernment in their decision making.

The media in Australia are choosing militant medical tyranny, over a duty of care to make sure “democracy doesn’t die in darkness.”

India has the longest running affirmative action programs in the world. These programs had a use-by date, and yet they’ve been extended and expanded time and time again.

Remember, when discussing the issue of mandatory COVax and certification, we’re talking domestic “papers please” police state oppression, not pragmatic tourism.

The former we have no choice over. The latter we do.

Give the government an inch on this, and they’ll run a mile.

If that happens, Democracy’s death certificate will read: cause of death, a complicit and compliant media re: COVID-19.

Threats of medical segregation via vaccine passports have exposed a critical societal weakness.

Medical segregation is a consequence of a greater segregation between those conscious of their rights, and those ambivalent towards, or unaware of those rights.

There is a divide between those who know what and where their rights come from, and those who’ve never been taught the basics.

This illiteracy separates civic minded citizens from those who either choose to ignore, or are taught to ignore civics and theology.

In this context, medical segregation is a lot less concerning than the divide between those who know their rights and those who don’t.

The greatest tool to subdue a once politically savvy, theologically literate population is to encourage a culture that prides itself on leaving politics to the politicians, and throwing theology into the dustbin of history.

Australians learn very little about the history and contemporary application of civics and theology.

From accounts about Australia’s newly proposed curriculum, we’re set to learn even less.

Corrupt bureaucrats benefit from this ignorance.

A poor understanding about civics and theology, or no interest at all in them, makes for a bloated bureaucracy.

It fills the ranks with educated elitists controlling a docile public, while you pay them well for the privilege.

A people ambivalent towards politics and religion are a people easy to hide corruption from.

A public ignorant of their roots, nation, and the richness of their heritage are easily abused. 

A people unaware of their rights, and where those rights come from, are easier to control.

They’re also easier to influence, and easier to govern.

It’s no surprise then, that brothels, liquor stores and fast-food restaurants remain open despite lockdowns.

An intoxicated, overweight polis is no threat to the sword, should the State choose to wield it against its own people.

A people uninterested in politics and religion will be governed outside their interests.

Consequently, a people left uneducated by an over-educated elite, are fodder for whatever sinister desires fat cat career politicians want to impose on an otherwise free people.

A corrupted bureaucracy benefits from a people who avoid talking about politics and religion as if doing so was a civic duty; even obedience to God.

There’s no need for me to run-on about how many times Romans 13 has been employed to justify ungodly compliant subservience, instead of Godly servanthood leadership.

With what’s currently unfolding in Afghanistan largely thanks to Joe Biden’s horrifying example of bad leadership teaches:

Governments will not govern in our interests if we don’t take an interest in how they govern.

Governments will not govern well, if we don’t care who, or why they are governing.

Governments will govern outside the law, if we don’t know or care about what freedoms exist that allow those being governed the right to hold bad governments accountable.

They serve the people; the people do not serve them.

Society, liberty and individual responsibility cannot thrive on a “we only know what’s best for you” – and we in the bureaucracy get to determine this – basis.

One consequence of a people either uninterested, or uneducated enough (if at all) in their rights and responsibilities, has been the quick formation of a COVID “vaccinated” class and their separation from the “vaccine” hesitant.

No sane, loving person chooses to embrace segregation.

No sane, loving person chooses to embrace oppression.

No sane, loving person welcomes their neighbour’s executioner.

Yet there seems to be those in society who want to do all three.

On this side sits life-destroying lockdown advocates.

On one other side, those who understand lockdowns, but choose to stand for life, light and liberty.

There is a divide in society.

This divide isn’t between the haves and have nots, it’s between those who know their rights, and those who don’t.

It may sound cliché, but the answer is education.

Regardless of melanin, minority or material wealth, Australians should be raising the next generation of ANZACs: mindful of civics and theology; God, Queen and country.

Mum’s and dads educating their kids as far as they possibly can, wherever, and whenever it is in their power and ability to do so.

This should happen long before parents march their kids off to an industrial education complex, where they are less exposed to education, and more, and more exposed to Ceasar’s vacuous, mind-killing indoctrination.

We should be raising ANZACs who run towards self-sufficiency for themselves and their families, and away from the cold, bony fingers of Government.

We should be raising ANZACs who are prepared, if necessary, to run towards the fight for life, light, and liberty, not away from it.

We should be raising ANZACs who are well informed enough to turn away from ungodly, unchristian, and anti-Western governance.

We should be raising ANZACs who will see through falsehoods, and walk towards truth without regard to how dampened their spirit is, or despondent, and demoralised they are.

The greatest tools used to subjugate a people are fear and ignorance.

Civics and theological illiteracy, is a pox on the West.

This plague separates a free people from those who’d rather the false promises of government dependency.

For them it’s easier to bury their head in the sand than draw a line in it.

They do this because they’ve either never been taught why, where, when or how to draw it; or because they’ve been conditioned to show no interest in doing so.

This is a detriment to our society, its future and the children who will inherit it.

Rand Paul just served up one of the best, liberty loving, pro-individual responsibility speeches of 2021.

In an open letter to Americans, elected an unelected bureaucrat, the Republican senator for Kentucky, stated,

“It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us. They can’t keep all of your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed. Although I’ve got a long list of ones that we outa keep closed.”

Paul adds,

“We don’t have to accept the mandates; the lockdowns and the harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say “no, not again.”

He then moved his words towards Nancy Pelosi telling the long over-due for retirement double-standard Democrat:

“We will make out own health choices.”

“You will not arrest, or stop me or anyone of my staff for doing our jobs. We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine.”

This was preceded by Paul rejecting vaccine passports,

“We will not show you a passport. We will not wear a mask. We will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk with power reign” over Washington D.C.

The trained doctor, turned senator, also rejected Biden’s mandates, stating,

“President Biden, we will not accept your agencies mandates, or your reported moves towards a lockdown. No one should follow the CDC’s anti-science mask mandates.”

Anticipating greater “bureaucratic power grabs” under the cover of COVID, Paul said that if Biden were to shut down government agencies again – some of whom aren’t even back to work yet – he’ll “stop every bill coming to the senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don’t come back to work in person.”

Speaking defiantly in defence of children, Paul who is the father of three boys, warned union bosses and local bureaucrats that he’ll push to defund any who pledge allegiance to corrupt COVID politics, stating,

“We will not allow you to do more harm to our children again this year. Children are not at any more risk of COVID than they are from the seasonal flu. Every adult who works in schools has either had the vaccine or had their chance to get vaccinated.”

There is “no reason,” Paul states, “for mask mandates, part time schools, or any lockdown measures. Children are falling behind and are being harmed physically and psychologically” by government sanctioned COVID “tactics”.

‘If it sounds like I’m fed up, it’s because I am,” Paul added; “I’m not a career politician. I practiced medicine for 33 years. I’ve worked in emergency rooms. I’ve studied immunology and virology, and ultimately chose to become an ophthalmologist.”

Following on from this, Paul says, “I’ve been telling everyone for a year now, that Doctor Fauci, and other public health bureaucrats were NOT following the science; and I’ve been proven right time and time again.”

He concludes,

‘We are at a moment of truth at a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy and children? Or will we stand together and say, “absolutely not. Not this time. I choose freedom.”

Rand Paul was elected to office in 2010. He’s been married for 24 years and follows Christ.

As far as senators go, Rand Paul – who is COVaxxed – is one of the few who’ve sought to keep Anthony Fauci accountable to the American people.

Consequently, Paul’s been one of the few elected representatives to publicly oppose Faucism, the COVID cultists, and subsequent bureaucratic COVIDiocy.

At the risk of repeating myself, Barack Obama’s birthday bash backs Rand Paul’s revolt.

His bold proclamation for freedom over Faucism isn’t fringe lunacy.

With lockdowns, and proposals for unconstitutional medical conscription, being the favourite go to of Australia’s bureaucrats and big media, the relevance of Paul’s words reach beyond the borders of the United States.

Our elected representatives need to put an end the tyranny of one-eyed solutions, and the totalitarianism of COVID mad bureaucrats.
