Some questions about "the new normal"

Dear Editor, Cape Cod Times:

According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, on October 22, 2020 only 1 person diagnosed with Covid 19 was counted as “hospitalized” and  0 were counted in the ICU at Falmouth Hospital. The count at Cape Cod Hospital in these categories was 0 and 0. Falmouth has a population of about 30,000 people. The population of Cape Cod is about 212,000.

Some questions: Should 212,00 people be required to wear face masks and maintain a distance of six feet from everyone else when just one person is in the hospital?

The Martha's Vineyard Times

Dear Editor:

 The U.S. Navy is inviting comments on a "Proposed Remedial Action Plan" for Nomans Land, a 600 acre island 3 miles south of Martha's Vineyard, part of the Town of Chilmark. The "action" proposed is to do nothing further to clean up the pollution and unexploded ordnance remaining on the island, which the Navy used as a base and aircraft gun and bombing range from 1943 to 1996.

Cease Fire!
Stopping a military machine gun range on Cape Cod

August 27, 2020

Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) Cape Cod,  https://ij-healthgeographics.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1476-072X-7-46

The Massachusetts Army National Guard recently filed an environmental assessment for a proposed machine gun firing range at Camp Edwards, a 15,000 acre military base occupying large parts of Sandwich and Bourne on Cape Cod. Not surprisingly, the Army found itself innocent of any possible harm this range might pose to the people and environment around the base -- it came to a "finding of no significant impact."  According to the Army, the range would require 170 acres  to be clear cut, plus 29 more acres disturbed. In addition, a "surface danger zone" of 5,197 acres would be established roughly north of the range, presumably for stray bullets. The machine gun firing point is about a half mile west of Snake Pond, and 2/10th of a mile from a residential area around Snake Pond. According to the Army document, "peak usage would occur from May through June", including night firing from sundown to 2:00 AM, for up to 74 days per year.

"No Place For Hate" has come out in support of widespread Black Lives Matter protests against the May 25, 2020 apparent police murder of George Floyd. What does "No Place for Hate" say about the police tactics used against George Floyd also being used daily against Palestinians in occupied Palestine?

Goals of the new world order

(and the attempt to achieve them through a global virus scare)

by Richard Hugus

April 6, 2020

The 2020 corona virus appears to be a massive global psy-op. This can be deduced from the list of totalitarian measures which were so quickly implemented in its name, as if prepared in advance. The virus has been reported to be a creation of US bio-warfare labs, such as the one mysteriously closed last August in Fort Detrick, Maryland. This makes it difficult for us to believe its sudden appearance was an act of nature with no political purpose. Discussions at the January 2020 Davos world forum and drills such as “Event 201” conducted in October 2019 at Johns Hopkins University point to planning and foreknowledge. The neocon Project for a New American Century in 2000 predicted  that "advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool." Hype and fear are being disseminated purposely in mainstream news around the clock. Statistics and computer models are being manipulated to prove anything and everything, so that there are good reasons to believe the "pandemic" is not even real.. The false flag of 9-11 seems like a close parallel. Like 9-11, an attack has occurred, but the perpetrators and their motives are hidden. Clearly a plan and an agenda are being served. Some initially said the virus was an attack by the US to provoke wars with China and Iran, but now we see that the entire world is being targeted. To what end? Perhaps we could say this is a "regime change" operation by the powerful against all of humanity and the idea that human beings under their rule have any sovereignty or intrinsic rights at all.

The Climate Scam

Al Gore, vice president during US/NATO bombing of Serbia, finds religion as huckster for global warming. Art by David Dees.

There have been numerous popular demonstrations and forums to address climate change, but the climate change scare has seemed suspicious from the start. Except for exploiting it, the natural environment has never been a concern of the rich and powerful, yet powerful interests are everywhere behind the many organizations hyping the threat of anthropogenic global warming. This vast theory came to mainstream acceptance far too quickly to be credible. Like so may political initiatives,  it was sold to the public through fear -- in this case, fear of human extinction in the very near future. No sooner did we hear of the theory than we were told "the science is settled." At that point, belief in global warming became dogma, and skepticism became heresy. If one voices skepticism,  one is called a "denier." Thus we are not allowed to question. This is the opposite of science. There is no protest against US, Israeli, Saudi, and NATO warmaking in the climate activist platform. In the US, the politics of climate change align with the politics of the Democratic Party, where criminal wars of aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq,  Yemen, and Syria, and constant threats against Iran are not discussed. How can you discuss environmental damage and not mention the largest polluter in the world -- the Pentagon?

Were we told the truth about who and what caused the September 11, 2001 attacks?  It seems not.

Resources on the health risks involved with vaccines

by Richard Hugus

September 4, 2019

The links and titles below are designed for expectant parents considering vaccination of their children after they are born. This includes the Hepatitis B shot on day 1, through the 72 (and growing) recommended vaccine shots and boosters recommended for children as they grow. Infants do not have an immune system sufficiently developed to withstand the toxic substances contained in vaccines. Though most children may get through the schedule without signs of overt harm, more subtle harmful effects like allergies and frequent minor illness are often seen in vaccinated children. Then there are the cases of overt harm like encephalopathy and autsim which the pharmaceutical corporations that make vaccines, and the doctors who administer them, deny all responsibility for. Human beings have an absolute right to refuse anything being injected into their bodies. The fact that that right is now being taken away by the withdrawal of exemptions means that all of us are subject to the most onerous kind of state coercion.

Who Is WHOI?
Oceanographer or defense contractor?

R/V Neil Armstrong arrives at Woods Hole Oceanographic ... collectspace.com

WHOI is the acronym for the 'Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution', based in Cape Cod, Town of Falmouth, village of Woods Hole, Massachusettts. On August 2, 2019 WHOI applied to the town of Falmouth for the clearing of 2.7 acres of woodland and the construction of a 3 story, 50,000 square foot building on what it calls its Quissett Campus, about a mile north of Woods Hole village. Documentation on the project provided by WHOI to the Falmouth Planning Department, and summarized by the Falmouth Enterprise, says its new building -- the New Quissett Facility -- "is proposed as a ‘technology accelerator . . . by creating this facility the NQF will become the epicenter of autonomous vehicle, sensor, and technology innovation at WHOI and around the world and could lead to a net increase in regional economic activity.”

The Vaccine Debate --  highlights in vaccine industry and medical research

by Richard Hugus

June 6, 2019

All states in the US mandate vaccines for school children, effectively taking away the right to education for families refusing vaccination. Different states allow one to three exemptions from mandatory vaccination on philosophical, religious or medical grounds. In 2015 the California legislature passed a bill (SB277) removing the philosophical or personal belief exemption. The religious exemption had already been removed. This left only the medical exemption, which is difficult to obtain. because doctors fear losing their medical licenses if they grant the exemption. The Maine state legislature recently followed suit, removing all religious or philosophical vaccine exemptions. Mandatory vaccination depends on the assumption that all recommended vaccines are safe for all children. As state laws are going in the direction of  more and more coercion, this is a good time to ask if that assumption is valid.

Israel and Venezuela

Pro-Guaido rally in Caracas, early February

Venezuela cut diplomatic ties with Israel after Israel’s attack on Gaza in 2008 – 2009. At the time, Hugo Chavez was president of Venezuela. The attack on Gaza, called “Operation Cast Lead,” saw Israeli fighter jets bomb schools, mosques, water treatment facilities, electrical generators, and residential areas, killing almost 1,400 Palestinians, a third of them women and children. Bombs were dropped containing white phosphorus. The people of Gaza had no defense against the bombing.
