Dear Patriots,

There was a time in America, when a political leader told us not to let fear overcome our optimism and confidence.

In the throes of the Great Depression and facing another world war, President Franklin Roosevelt implored Americans to not be overcome by the powerful emotion of fear.

“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”  – FDR, Inauguration 1933.

What a different message we hear now, 90 years later, from our political leaders.

Instead of encouraging us not to be fearful, they tell us to be afraid and scared.

The government, abetted by “experts’ and Fake News, have made us so fearful that we allowed them to lock us in our homes, wrap our faces in useless cloth, deny us church worship, forbade us time with loved ones, destroy a generation of children, and made too many happy to inject poison into their bodies.

This was quickly accomplished by relentlessly driving fear of Covid-CCP into all aspects of our daily lives.

As we barrel into another week of uncertainty and unsettling news, we encourage you to read Dr. Peter A. McCullough’s Substack below and follow up with the interview with Gavin de Becker and Tucker Carlson. While you are at it, look into both books mentioned.

While fear can be debilitating, it also sparks protection. As de Becker teaches, our best tool against harm is our ability to trust that voice in our head that warns us to take care. Call it intuition, common sense, sixth sense, instinct….it is the strongest weapon all of us have to fight back the fear and defend ourselves, be it from dangerous assaults or dangerous government.

Dr. Peter A. McCullough

Programming Fear
Gavin de Becker’s fascinating interview with Tucker Carlson


QUOTE: The security analyst and author, Gavin de Becker, just gave a fascinating interview on Tucker Carlson Today. He must surely have one of most extraordinary life stories in history, beginning with a childhood of high, unpredictable drama and adventure. While most children would have been crushed by the chaos of it, in his case, it seems to have sharpened his senses and made him lightning fast on his feet.

In the summer of 2007, a Colorado game warden told me about Mr. de Becker’s book, The Gift of Fear. The warden often went undercover to perform sting operations on illegal poachers, some of whom were involved in multiple criminal enterprises. As a law officer—alone in the country with armed men while pretending to be their friend in order to bust them for poaching—he needed to be constantly vigilant to signs that his subjects’ were beginning to regard him with suspicion. 

He told me he’d found Mr. de Becker’s book useful because it illustrated for him just how sensitive our intuitions are for detecting danger. If your intuition tells you that you are in the presence of a predatory or hostile man—even if he is assuring you of his friendship and affection—you should always listen to your intuition. Though it’s not infallible, it’s so accurate that we second guess it at our peril.

This principle applied equally to the game warden and the men he was trying to sting, who were often wily and alert to the possibility of law officers in their midst. My game warden friend practiced being in tune with his intuitions and trusting them. To be sure, he was in the business of dealing with dangerous humans. Because we humans are apex predators and often prey on each other, nature has instilled in us the capacity to sense the presence of a dangerous man, even if he’s an artful dissimulator. 

Our threat detection system is calibrated differently for men and women. Women may be twice as sensitive to danger because they frequently look out not only for themselves, but also for infants in their care. Dr. McCullough and I have often observed that the greatest soldiers of the medical freedom movement are mothers who quickly detected that our ruling class is full of predators.

As Mr. de Becker points out in his Tucker Carlson interview…

while modern humans are inclined to second guess their intuitions, they are nevertheless easily programmed to fear what they are told to fear by authority figures. In this way, our archaic threat detection system can be hijacked and exploited by tyrants, who have always incited fear to augment their power. When we are mortally afraid, our survival instinct is to fight or flee from the threat, not to think about it in critical way.

By constant fear-mongering, our health agencies and media conditioned us to:

(1) Excessively and indiscriminately fear COVID-19 without consideration for the fact that it’s a markedly risk-stratified illness.

(2) Irrationally fear early treatment modalities such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, which are (in fact) some of the safest drugs known to man.

Through its COVID-19 PSYOP, our government and media generated an overwhelming desire for anything that would deliver us from the purported danger. This, in turn, made us vulnerable to the lie that the so-called COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The result of this PSYOP was an extreme distortion of reality that enabled our overlords to hijack and pervert our natural capacity for fear.

Thus we witnessed the bizarre spectacle of pregnant mothers receiving the new, experimental gene transfer shot, even though pregnant women were excluded from the human trials. Contrast this with hydroxychloroquine, which has, for decades, been known to be perfectly safe for pregnant women, with hundreds of millions of doses tolerated by this cohort in tropical countries where malaria is endemic.

In the United States it has long been standard for pregnant women to abstain from drinking a single glass or wine or eating raw-milk cheese, but many of these same women lined up to receive the experimental shots developed at “Warp Speed.” This was a stark example of the “fear programming” that Mr. de Becker elucidates in his interview.

Another stunning perversion of fear was the false claim that COVID-19 posed a significant risk to young athletes, while simultaneously insisting the mRNA COVID-19 shots present none. In fact, it’s the opposite, with young athletes at virtually zero risk of severe COVID-19, but especially susceptible to vaccine-induced myocarditis and pericarditis. 

I strongly recommend watching the interview and picking up a copy of the book Cause Unknown by Ed Dowd, for which Mr. de Becker assisted with research and analysis and wrote the Afterword.
