From the editor…

Two articles to share today. As the “Omicron Variant” continues to dominate the headlines, fear and manipulation seem to be the tools in use. John Fund starts us off with the topic and Jack Gleason continues, wondering, “do the powers in the shadows think of us as sheep?”

Remember, an educated and enlightened citizenry is vital for our future. As it has been written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV

The Citizens Voice provides information that the mainstream media hopes people don’t hear.  Forward these newsletters to your friends and let them see, first hand, that there is more than one side to a story.  Then they will begin to understand the peril that our nation is in and be able to make informed decisions.

We are truly thankful for all of our readers who have chosen to assist our efforts in bringing the information and words of encouragement to all Americans we can possibly reach. We are truly grateful for the generous donations from our fellow Citizen Sentinels. It helps us keep going as  a truly volunteer effort. Thank you so very much for whatever can be given. 

Ownership of our Republic is now the fight of our time! Keeping our Republic depends upon the genuine sense of ownership of the Land of the Free. Either this is our country, or it will belong to those who are actively seeking to take it from us. It is the same mentality that inspired someone long ago to express the sentiment that “All it takes for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing.” Efforts to take responsibility for keeping this nation a free Republic are organically occurring right now all across the nation.

The Merchants of Omicron Fear

By JOHN FUND – December 23, 2021 – article originally posted in National Review

It’s been nearly six weeks since Omicron was detected in South Africa, and so far, the evidence from there, as well as Denmark and the U.K., shows it to be highly contagious but with mild symptoms. Hospitalization rates are over nine times lower than for previous COVID strains; deaths.

But as Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute points out, public-health officials and the media are engaged in a type of Project Fear to gin up Omicron hysteria.

Her entire New York Post piece is worth reading, but she identifies six fear mongering strategies in this excerpt:

1. Create group fear

Man-on-the-street interviews quote Nervous Nellies exclusively and create a climate of peak anxiety. . . .

2. Buttress group fear with expert opinion

The only public health experts whom the media quote are those determined to put the most dire spin on Omicron. . . . They may grudgingly admit that Omicron symptoms are disproportionately mild, but rush to assert that there are still many as-yet-unrealized grounds for worry. . . .

There are apparently no circumstances that would warrant a less-than-totalitarian response in advance of any actual disaster. The yearning for more draconian lockdowns and more control over the private sector is palpable.

3. Manufacture epistemological uncertainty and insist on it as long as possible

The media intone repeatedly that much remains uncertain about Omicron, including how likely it is to cause severe disease. But we already have a good picture of that likelihood from the South Africa experience: very unlikely.

4. Bury both good news and dissenters from the bad news

. . . . Are there no experts who think that Omicron is not an emerging threat? Apparently not, if you read the mainstream media. If any dissenters do break through, they will be as demonized and silenced by Big Tech as the lockdown skeptics in the scientific community were at the start of the COVID era.

5. Omit relevant context

We hear constantly that 1,300 people are dying a day from COVID. By comparison, about 2,000 people die each day from cancer and 1,600 from heart disease. Their deaths get no coverage. COVID was the leading cause of death in the United States only in January 2021, even among those 85 and older.

. . . Restrictive COVID policies exacerbated sickness in the highest-ranking categories of mortality, a toll that will only grow. Patients put off lifesaving cancer screenings, having been spooked away from medical facilities. Obesity worsened, as gyms closed and people packed on the pounds.

6. Flog the case count

. . . Case counts are a particularly deceptive measure of pandemic severity, when so many of the new cases are mild to asymptomatic. . . hospitalization rates in New York City, the leading wedge of Omicron, remain comparatively low.

Mac Donald says there’s hope the rest of the country will act more rationally toward Omicron. She concludes that we have turned the equivalent of the common cold into a potent weapon against the resumption of civil society.

Do people really act like sheep?

By Jack Gleason -December 23, 2021

We have all heard the term “sheeple,” but do people really act like sheep?

Sheep will follow a leader—usually the sheep in front of them.  “When one member of the herd  decides to go somewhere, the rest of the flock usually follows, even if it is not a good ‘decision.’”

“A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination.  In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared.”

“If one sheep jumps over a cliff, the others are likely to follow.  Even from birth, lambs are conditioned to follow the older members of the flock.  This instinct is “hard-wired” into sheep.  It’s not something they ‘think’ about.”

Sheep feel safer in numbers.  They are gregarious and usually stay together while grazing.  “In fact, a sheep will become highly agitated if it is separated from the group.  It is the banding together in large groups which protects sheep from predators which will go after the outliers in the flock.”

Sheep are social animals – this tendency is taken advantage of by sheep herders to move large numbers of sheep easily.  They are also prey animals.  When faced with danger, their instinct is to run, not confront their attacker.

“Some primitive sheep breeds may be able to more effectively evade predators, as their natural instincts are stronger.  Domesticated sheep have come to rely on man for protection from predators.”

In order to have a healthy flock, experts say your sheep may need to be culled for aesthetic, economic or other reasons.  You may not have enough pasture and need to reduce the size of the flock.  Overcrowding can lead to diseases which can affect them all.

Unproductive or underproductive animals need to be culled along with those with genetically undesirable traits such as poor appearance or susceptibility to disease.

Sheep to be culled are often marked to make identification easier

Old, thin animals that can no longer eat properly should also be culled.

Finally, you need to factor in the cost of keeping each animal, feeding costs, health care costs, and shelter capacity.

Sheep to be culled are often marked to make identification easier.

Despite these traits, research shows that sheep are not stupid.  They can find creative ways around obstacles, and remember each other’s faces and even faces of specific humans.  “Scientists at the University of Cambridge discovered that sheep have brain power to equal rodents, monkeys, and in some tests, humans.”

The instincts that are hard-wired into sheep make them easy to control in large groups.  They can be frightened to move in a specific direction and managed into pens with ever-narrowing sides.  Once they are restricted enough, they cannot turn around and must keep going the same way, even if it leads them to slaughter.

People can be manipulated just like sheep.  They can be frightened, herded, and culled

Of course, humans are not sheep, but like all mammals we do have instincts that were hard-wired through millions of years of evolution, including fear, anger, curiosity, jealousy, rivalry and sociability.

They are all essential to self-preservation – a person with no fear will quickly die from predators, curiosity leads to solutions to new problems, jealousy and rivalry involve success in groups.

Sociability is among the strongest instincts.  Being a member of a well-organized group is essential for survival.  Most people will go to extreme lengths to avoid being cast out from their group.  They will follow their leaders even if it means their own death.  The mass suicide at Jonestown is one such example.

Taking advantage of these human instincts means that people can be manipulated just like sheep.  They can be frightened, herded, and culled.

Would this justify “culling” the human “herd” to limit their impact on the planet?

But who would think of people this way?

They would have to see themselves as given the right to make decisions for others based on criteria only they know.

Do some of our leaders feel that the future of the human race is in peril if the resources of our planet are finite, or the long-term climate is in danger?  If so, would this justify “culling” the human “herd” to limit their impact on the planet?

Or do they think they are superior and their positions of power mean they can force others to serve their needs?  In 1998, George Soros said, ‘I have always harboured an exaggerated view of my self-importance,’ he wrote.   ‘To put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes, or, even better, like Einstein.”  (Stephen Fay, “Profile: George Soros: God Of All He Surveys,” The Independent [London], 5/17/98)

This life of power leads to a form of insane immorality, where rules of civilized behavior apply only to others.   This is why we saw videos of political leaders at fine restaurants with no masks while everyone else was quarantined eating TV dinners.   Scientists feel that it’s OK to fake data to reach their desired conclusions.   Governors can ignore their legislatures and act like dictators.”

Societies throughout history have had kings and serfs, masters and slaves

Most societies throughout history have had kings and serfs, masters and slaves.  Many slave owners considered them property to be culled and bred just like sheep.

Other societies determined that some ethnic groups were “less than human,” or threats to the genetic purity of the master race, leading to countless cases of genocide.

Do all humans have the same rights or should elites be able to use their wealth and power to manipulate them?

It is clear that techniques to mentally control large numbers of people by taking full advantage of human instincts have been developed to a fine art over the last fifty years.

Who are the people pulling our strings?  What is their ultimate goal?  Is it the Chinese Communist Party leaders wanting to rule the entire world in luxury served by slave labor?  Or is it the Globalists wanting to depopulate the earth so its beauty won’t be defiled by the masses – or a weird combination of the two, each hoping to off the other when the United States is disposed of?

The question that demands an answer from us all is “Can we, as beings with instinctive behaviors, become aware of how we are being manipulated by others?”

Or are we going through our daily lives wandering with our heads down from one patch of grass to another looking for our next meal?  Are we being frightened into moving in the same direction like a herd of sheep?  Will our desire to remain part of our social group lead us to take a potentially harmful vaccine?  Are we being manipulated into a rivalry against our fellow Americans to destroy ourselves from within?

Unless we can raise up our heads and realize what is being done to our country and the rest of the world, it may be too late to turn around.
