    Question

    Crucial Assassinations and the Hidden Stories Behind Them

    Whitley Strieber with Nick Redfern

    Everywhere you look in the general media, the mantra is the same: there is no such thing as a conspiracy and anything suggesting that the conventional explanation is not sufficient is a “crackpot conspiracy theory.” And yet, more than a few close encounter witnesses and UFO investigators have had direct experience of things like the much joked about men in black.

    But this show isn’t about those fairly benign figures, whoever they are. It is about a group of assassinations that changed our world and the loose ends that just plain have never been tied up.

    James Forrestall, Dorothy Kilgallen, Marilyn Monroe, JFK, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, John Lennon: the deaths of the group of people effectively changed our world. Between the first death and the last, we went from being a free country to a country that only appears to be free.

    What really happened and why?

    Dreamland’s old friend and frequent guest Nick Redfern has some ideas…

    Question

    And how did you spend your weekend ...

    WATCH: "A man and a woman dressed in scrubs and face masks stood in counter-protest in front of a line of vehicles filled with people campaigning against the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in Denver, Colo., on April 19" ...

    ‘Go to China!’: ‘Nurses’ hailed for blocking
    anti-quarantine ‘Karen’ at coronavirus protest


    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnonxKHDc9E

    Health-care workers are the only people standing between everyday citizens and the novel coronavirus — even if those everyday citizens value their own personal freedom over things like public health, common sense or their own lives.

    That dynamic was on full display in Denver, Colo., over the weekend, where the United States got its own bizarre Tiananmen Square-like photo moment — except instead of a protester standing up to a government tank, it was two health-care workers standing up to a “Land of the free”-loving couple in a truck.



    Video and photos circulating online show two people in scrubs and masks blocking a crosswalk to stop a procession of far-right protesters en route to the state’s Capitol, where many of their ilk were already violating physical distancing rules to call for an end to the coronavirus lockdowns meant to slow the spread of the virus.

    The two counter-protesters — a man and a woman — could be seen standing in the path of a large silver pickup truck on Sunday, refusing to budge while the vehicle’s occupants hurled a flurry of verbal abuse at them. A witness described them as “nurses” in his video, although their exact professions are unknown. They told another witness they were health-care workers.

    “Go to China!” a middle-aged blonde woman in a U.S.A. shirt shouted at them from the pickup truck, while leaning out of the passenger’s window. “It’s a free country! America the free!” she declared, before slapping a sign reading “Land of the free” onto the windshield.

    The two health-care workers did not move.



    Videos and photos of the incident have circulated widely on the internet, where many have called it a perfect encapsulation of the anxiety and frustration emerging around the COVID-19 pandemic. The illness has killed more than 40,000 people in the United States alone, while lockdowns meant to slow its spread have tipped the world into a major recession. Many have become impatient with the lockdowns, although grouping up to protest those lockdowns appears to be a largely right-wing phenomenon at this point.

    More than 12 million people have watched the Denver video on Twitter alone, where the angry woman has been dubbed “Karen” — an internet slang term for an irritating woman who demands to speak to the manager when she doesn’t get her way.

    “The most un-American thing you can do is tell medical professionals who’re saving American lives to go to China,” Twitter user Michelle Sylvester wrote. “Bye Karen.”

    “Here we see a racist Karen in her non-native habitat telling an Asian American nurse to ‘go to China,’” wrote Dr. Eugene Gu on Twitter. “Such fascinating yet peculiar behavior, since Karen may soon find herself in need of the nurse’s lifesaving care in the coming months.”

    Another user described the woman as “COVID Karen,” adding: “This is America in one photo.”

    The Colorado protest was one of more than a dozen across the United States over the weekend, where many conservative voices — including U.S. President Donald Trump — have urged Americans to defy scientist-recommended measures meant to keep everyone safe from the virus.

    Trump appeared to turn the lockdown into another front in the U.S. culture war on Friday when he encouraged Americans to “LIBERATE” Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia — three states with Democratic governors running their lockdowns.

    Pro-Trump signs have been a common sight at these protests, including the one in Denver.

    “These people love our country,” Trump said at his daily press briefing in Washington on Sunday, when asked about the right-wing protests. “They want to get back to work.”

    Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are legally obligated to self-isolate for 14 days, beginning March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to ensure those returning to the area self-isolate.

    Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

    The protesters were blocking hospitals and blocking emergency vehicles from getting to the hospitals.

    No-one has the freedom to cause others to suffer and die.

    I think chimps are much smarter than that.

    This song was made in the chimp-Bush era, but it's still as relevant as ever.

    I see. I guess we could be referring to this?

    The image, by Gongwer News Service's publisher, shows an ambulance apparently trapped in a jam from "Operation Gridlock," a protest of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home order.
    https://www.deadlinedetroit.com/arti...ocks_ambulance

    Or maybe this?

    Many state Democrats, including Sen. Curtis Hertel, D-East Lansing, Rep. Leslie Love, D-Detroit, and Rep. Christine Greig, D-Farmington Hills, expressed concerns about the protest on Twitter, saying it was blocking ambulances and putting people's lives at risk.

    But both the Lansing Fire Department and Sparrow Health Systems said they didn't experience any major delays from the protest.

    Lansing Fire Department Assistant Chief Mike Tobin said while the ambulances were slowed down because of the congestion, crews told him it was no worse than a heavy day in rush hour.
    https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/...st/5145522002/

    I wonder... if angry people gathered by the tens of thousands to clog the streets of DC in protest of Captain Chaos, would it be portrayed in the same manner? That they maybe held up an ambulance here and there? Or, more likely "heroic protesters finally tell Trump enough is enough!"

    Eye of the beholder is a fascinating thing indeed...

    Thinking

    Thanks for the comments ...

    While noting this global medical emergency situation, has us (all) now
    experiencing a new (pre-existing) hyper biological human reality ...

    Obviously the pressures and frustrations can totally be appreciated here ...
    Unlike many other nations, the U.S. system is unique unto itself.

    I have faith each State (regions) will work with each other in implementing
    a safe plan in commencing back to full interstate travel and commerce ...

    But of course the great unknown here is not just the virus, is it?

    Has it happened? I suspect that any self-respecting Democrat would let an ambulance pass...

    Is that really the point though? Money or lives? Local governments? Why can't Governors speak sense? Because they have none?

    The simple solution if one is capable of independent thought, which it seems Trumpers are not capable of given the trash blocking their synapses, is to just explain that human rights are being given back by the 'controllers' in hope that the people having been granted their right to self-determination will use it responsibly. If not, then they go f*ck themselves.

    bottom line is of course Trump...that guy is massively deranged...no one in their right mind could support this level of dysfunction.

    Gridlocking roads leads to these sorts of consequences, purposeful or not.

    And yes, I am aware that this sort of things pops up periodically, like it did with Black Lives Matter protests.

    People want to create gridlock to send a message but don't seem to take into account folks getting hurt in the process.

    Freedom does not mean endangering others. And yet we have anti-vaxxers and others who do so constantly. It's not a right.

    Vern make note,

    Washington State (since i've been a resident of 10yrs) votes by mail ...
    It is quite efficient with safe guards built in - it works very well ...

    And it was instituted in 1983.
