The 1st Amendment has succumbed to COVID-19 and it appears to have been killed off in the process. Governments at all levels, municipal, state and even the federal government have actively played a part in the death of free speech along with a plethora of soulless corporate entities using COVID-19 as the assassin.
Along with free speech add the right to peaceful assembly and interfering with religious observances make this attack on the 1st Amendment a total and complete gutting of the all important and fundamental part of the the US Constitution.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
The founding fathers of the Republic of The United States of America chose to ensconce freedom of speech in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution They obviously understood and valued just how important freedom of speech was to them and would be to all of the people of the new founded republic for all time.
Just one example is the men and women during WWI and WWII who gave their lives in the service of the republic to ensure that freedom would not perish under the threats of those who would destroy it.
They fought knowingly, courageously and were not swayed by their own fears because they believed as the forefathers did that freedom was without question something worth fighting for.
And now we see some of the descendants of those brave people along with others who have come from abroad toss aside freedom for a perceived fear and their wish for safety.
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."-Ben Franklin
It is up to all of us now to recognize that we can not let fear interfere with the most critical part and essential thing to all human beings.
For without freedom we are enslaved and forever lost.
We must resist now and fight our fight to remain free.
In solidarity with all good people.
American Herald Tribune Has Been Shut Down by the FBI
by Eric Zuesse
On November 7th, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the great online-only news-reporting and analysis site American Herald-Tribune, which had published news and history that is banned by the U.S. Government, such as this (which was also published here, if the videos there fail to load, in that archived copy). Visitors to the site immediately saw, there, instead, an FBI announcement that, “THIS WEBSITE HAS BEEN SEIZED”, and displaying the official insignia of the “Department of Justice,” and of the “Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
Some of the site’s articles presented the latest evidence, both pro and con, regarding super-hot topics of international speculation, such as what the origin was of the coronavirus. Even on such contentious matters as those, the articles generally linked to credible sources...
