In case you missed it — and if all you watch or listen to is the ‘mainstream media,’ chances are you did — the COVID-19 pandemic is waning. Big time.
Article by J.D. Heyes from Natural News.
In fact, cases have fallen so much that political and cultural news site Axios will no longer keep its weekly virus tracker.
“Nearly every week for the past 56 weeks, Axios has tracked the change — more often than not, the increase — in new COVID-19 infections. Those case counts are now so low, the virus is so well contained, that this will be our final weekly map,” the site reported.
Over the past week, the U.S. averaged roughly 16,500 new cases per day, or 30 percent fewer than last week. Meanwhile, new infections fell in 43 states and held steady in the remaining seven.
“The official case counts haven’t been this low since Americans went into lockdown in March last year — when the pandemic was still new, no one knew how long this would go on, and inadequate testing meant that cases were undercounted,” Axios continued, adding that about 10 percent of the population — 34 million — have tested positive for the virus and some 611,000 have died from it.
So again, clearly the prevalence of COVID-19 is diminishing and the pandemic is waning. So why are “The Vaccinators” still pushing the shots — and in ways that, frankly, are ridiculous?
The Epoch Times reports what the governor of West Virginia has authorized to get more citizens in his state to take the risky vaccine:
West Virginians who get a COVID-19 vaccination will be entered into sweepstakes to win custom guns or $1 million, Gov. Jim Justice announced on Tuesday. …
The program will award $1 million to one person each week starting June 20. On the last day, Aug. 4, the state will give $1,588,000 to the winner and $588,000 to the runner-up, Justice said.
“We’re going to give five custom hunting rifles and five custom hunting shotguns away on Father’s Day. And also on Father’s Day, we’re going to make one of you a millionaire. We’re going to give away a million dollars to somebody on Father’s Day,” Justice, who is a Democrat-turned-Republican, told a reporters.
“I’m sure we’ll have a bunch of happy campers,” Justice added.
Well, not really — that is, not if many West Virginians who go and get the vaccine wind up injured by it.
But wait, as they say, there’s more.
“Along with guns, the state plans on doling out college scholarships and pickup trucks. The state is buying the prizes before handing them out, as opposed to receiving donated items to award to vaccine recipients,” The Epoch Times notes further, adding that the state is emphasizing only people who have gotten their vaccines are eligible to enter the contest and must register at a state website under construction.
And while Democrats have been the most vocal about forcing Americans to get the shot, Republicans appear to be more eager to offer up cash, prizes and goodies to get people to agree to be vaccinated. This trend was launched by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, ostensibly a Republican, on May 12 with an announcement that five state residents would be paid $1 million in a vaccine lottery-style drawing.
After he made the announcement, Ohio’s vaccination rate surged by 28 percent.
“We need to save lives. We need to get Ohio moving forward. The way we do it is through vaccines. This is our ticket out of the pandemic. This is the great tool that we have now,” DeWine said in defending his program.
All that did was inspire others to follow suit — including Justice in West Virginia.
“I can’t stand for Ohio to get ahead of us on anything,” Justice told reporters. “But just think about this: the faster we get them across the finish line, the more lives we save.”
According to the latest figures, only about 10 percent of Americans — roughly 34 million — have even tested positive for the virus. We don’t need to be vaccinated.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
