California’s Proposed “Single-Payer” Health Care System…

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

I guess I’m not surprised that in this ultra-busy American society, people are so eager to get instant gratification when it comes to everything.

… And in their Minds, Why should their Health Care be ANY Different?

Our Smart Phones give us everything we need at our fingertips. People can contact each other at lightening speed, instead of having to wait for a return phone call or face to face meeting.

To many liberal democrats, “Single Payer” Healthcare seems like the instant gratification and easy solution that everyone craves and demands these days for “fast-food-type” and “one-size-fits-all” Health Care.

…as if Pharmaceutical Healthcare can be consolidated to be Instant, Omnipotent and Cheap…

This is the same crowd that believes in, “a pill for every ill” and the dubious Big Pharma marketing claim that a pill or a chemical injection is “the cure” for every sickness or ill known to man.

Instead of preventative programs; like eating well (and I’m NOT talking about the S.A.D. American Diet), exercise and emotional well-being, the Pharmaceutical companies have taken it upon themselves to dictate HOW diseases are allowed to be “treated.

Treated not Cured…

I use the word “treated” and NOT “cured,” intentionally.

Read this article and you can see how Big Pharma, along with the FDA, limit and sometimes ban inexpensive cures, in favor of dangerous, but profitable Pharmaceutical pills and concoctions.

“Single-Payer” healthcare (SB 562 The Healthy California Act) was introduced February 17, 2017 by California Senator Ricardo Lara (Bell Gardens) and is being heavily sponsored by the California Nurses Association.

Why would the California Nurses Association push so hard for single-payer?

Well I’m glad you asked.

According to Wikipedia;

RoseAnn DeMoro

RoseAnn DeMoro is the executive director of National Nurses United and of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee.

DeMoro also serves as national vice president and executive board member of the AFL-CIO.[1]

And we hit pay dirt… Both National Nurses United and the AFL-CIO are huge National Left-Leaning Trade Unions.

On Wikipedia, National Nurses United admits their leftist ideals:

“National health care reform

CNA/NNOC has drawn national attention for campaigns on behalf of patients denied medical treatment recommended by their physicians.

The CNA/NNOC is a primary national organizational advocate of the United States National Health Care Act (HR 676). The bill would establish a single-payer national public health care insurance plan, essentially an improved equal-treatment Medicare for all Americans.

On June 19, 2008, CNA/NNOC joined with other health care, labor, and community activists, and patients in sponsoring a day of protest against the insurance industry in 19 cities across the U.S. calling for enactment of HR 676.”

Did you get that?

One-Size-Fits-All, Drive-through Medicare for all Americans, whether you want it or not…

Checkout the Political Activities of the AFL-CIO:

“The AFL–CIO was a major component of the New Deal Coalition that dominated politics into the mid-1960s.[8] Although it has lost membership, finances, and political clout since 1970, it remains a major player on the liberal side of national politics, with a great deal of activity in lobbying, grassroots organizing, coordinating with other liberal organizations, fund-raising, and recruiting and supporting candidates around the country.[9]

In recent years the AFL–CIO has concentrated its political efforts on lobbying in Washington and the state capitals, and on “GOTV” (get-out-the-vote) campaigns in major elections. For example, in the 2010 midterm elections, it sent 28.6 million pieces of mail. Members received a “slate card” with a list of union endorsements matched to the member’s congressional district, along with a “personalized” letter from President Trumka emphasizing the importance of voting. In addition, 100,000 volunteers went door-to-door to promote endorsed candidates to 13 million union voters in 32 states.[10][11]

The AFL–CIO gave $6,123,437 to super PACs in 2012, including $5.95 million to the AFL–CIO’s own super PAC.[12]

In June 2016, it was reported that the AFL–CIO planned to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.[13]

In a CNN web article from March, details emerge from the globalist-progressive explanation for the targeting of California for single-payer healthcare:

“State Sen. Ricardo Lara, who co-authored and introduced the California bill in February, described it as a local necessity with the potential for creating a road map for other states. Hillary Clinton’s defeat last year has accelerated the process, he added.

There’s no doubt that Trump’s election and what Republicans are doing to dismantle health care has really given us an opportunity to have an honest dialogue about how we get to health for all,” Lara said. “I don’t think we would have had the same opportunity if Clinton would have won. Then again, we also wouldn’t be in a place where we’re going to lose billions of (Medicaid) dollars for California.”

Lara views the health care fight as one piece of a broader play to turn back the Trump agenda — first with grassroots resistance, then by actively shaping more attractive and inclusive policy.

People in my district are genuinely scared — scared that they are going to lose their health care, scared that their mom or dad might be deported,” he said. “We have transgender children who are scared now about who they are and questioning that. Democrats in general, now, it’s time for us not only to present alternatives, but be unequivocal and unapologetic about who we are. If we don’t do that now, when? This is a moment that will define us as a party and we need to fight.”

Makes Sense Doesn’t it?

California Government Becomes Sci-Fi Equivalent of “The Borg”…

California has become SURREAL.  It’s like we are living in a “B” movie…

The Borg” are a fictional alien race that appear as recurring antagonists in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are a collection of species that have been turned into cybernetic organisms functioning as drones in a hive mind, called “the Collective” or “the Hive”.

The Borg” use a process called assimilation to force other species into the Collective by injecting microscopic machines called nanoprobes, as well as with surgically adding cybernetic parts.

The Borg “Queen of the Hive.”

The Borg” are driven by a need for ‘perfection’, and assimilate other races to further that goal.[1]

Also referred to as the “hive mind” or “collective consciousness”, the Borg Collective is a civilization with a group mind. Each Borg individual, or drone, is linked to the collective by a sophisticated subspace network that ensures each member is given constant supervision and guidance.  -Wikipedia

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

A Very Astute, AWAKE California member pointed out:

“As the sickest of all industrialized nations, what assures our uninterrupted de-evolution is the decline of intelligence and education where perfectly healthy people willingly accept being forced to take potentially dangerous drugs and vaccines. Without a squawk.

Exempting one’s child from vaccines has always been a path chosen by a small percentage of the most educated people. The militantly uneducated will always accept as many vaccines as they are told. That will never change.

What has changed dramatically is that now we have arrived at a dangerous and uncharted new crossroads in national politics, where the will of the uneducated mob is being imposed by law on the educated. Such a trend will ensure the continuation of the academic, ethical, and moral deterioration that we have witnessed since 9/11. Today’s measles hysteria is just a symptom of that more systemic, more profound malaise.

The Cancer Lurking in Every Vaccine…

It’s been a rough few weeks for me...

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

 

I just found out a third homeschooling mentor-friend of mine was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that has spread.

She’s had both breasts removed and now they are talking about removing her uterus…

So far, she seems to be following the allopathic model for cancer treatment.

Unfortunately, the success rates for surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are not all that promising.

One homeschooling mentor-friend lost her battle with cancer (she fought for 2 years with alternative and complementary therapies). She also had an especially aggressive form of breast cancer.

Even those in the cancer industry shun the conventional treatment…

Communist California Taking Steps to Own You and Your Child From Cradle to Grave…

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

At California Senator Richard Pan’s most recent Town Hall Meeting regarding Senate Bill 18, the Children’s Bill of Rights, many parents claimed that they were completely shut out of these Town Hall Meetings.

These so-called Town Hall Meetings are supposed to be open to all members of the public.

Parents allege that they were prevented from speaking, while many seemingly paid proponents of the bill were invited to speak, and often past their allotted amount of time.

In addition, the people that spoke in support of the bill, had presumed financial incentives and ties that would directly benefit themselves and state agencies by the passage of SB18.

Sounds like SB277 deja vu all over again…

Conflicts of Interest…

People who made negative comments on an autism post on Senator Richard Pan’s facebook page were allegedly moved to the overfill room and prevented from speaking at the “Town Hall Meeting.”

When one parent, emboldened by not being allowed to speak, decided to stand up and speak anyway at the end of the meeting, the lights were shut off.

People began chanting their opposition to Senate Bill 18 and the stealing of parental rights.

The lights continued to stay turned off, as people chanted and stumbled through the dark.

I sure hope that Senator Pan didn’t cause anyone to be injured by this reckless and irrational behavior.

Here’s My Five Bucks…

The acceptance of the legality of Mandatory Government Sanctioned Vaccines became cemented in a landmark Supreme Court case, “Jacobson v. Massachusetts 197 u.s. 11 (1905)” …  Or did it?

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California

According to the Pro-Mandatory Vaccination side, the U.S. Government and Pharmaceutical companies are always able to solidly hang their hat on the 1905 Supreme Court Decision; “Jacobson v. Massachusetts,” as the sacrosanct, medically “scientific” rationale for forced vaccinations for the public “good” or “public health.”

The argument goes that the Government Enforcement of Mandatory Vaccines has already been established by the supreme law of the land, since 1905.

There is nothing that an individual can do, but roll up their sleeve and take the shot for the welfare of “public health.”

Period…end of story.

Or is it?

And the Liberal Democrat Women Marched…

The so-called “Women’s March” was NOT about Women’s Rights being trampled in the U.S.

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California

So many women, like me, are befuddled and embarrassed by the outrageous costumes and antics of women that participated in the “Women’s March.”  

The message and point of the women’s march seemed to get lost in translation, if there was even a clear message at all…

Media Editorials cited in Wikipedia State:

“On January 4, 2017, columnist Shikha Dalmia called the protest “a feel-good exercise in search of a cause“.[133]

The New York Post Editorial Board asked if the event might be “cursed”, writing, “The three white feminists who thought up the idea felt obliged to change that title after they faced charges of ‘cultural appropriation'”.[134]

Us Magazine noted social media posts and a Change.org petition criticizing the march for having left Hillary Clinton’s name off a list of 27 honorees who “paved the way” for equal rights.[135]

The organizers’ decision to make Angela Davis a featured speaker was criticized from the right by Humberto Fontova[136] and National Review.[137] Libertarian journalist Cathy Young wrote that Davis’s “long record of support for political violence in the United States and the worst of human rights abusers abroad” undermined the march.[138]

I’m still trying to make sense of it all.

And, If That’s Not Bad Enough…

The day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, so-called Muslim feminist  Linda Sarsour ascended the global stage at the “Women’s March on Washington.”

Muslim Feminist? Isn’t that is a contradiction in terms?

Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angela Davis, Van Jones — Sarsour is proving to be equally controversial.

Sarsour, a co-chair of the march, is a Muslim feminist and well-known Soros-funded activist in New York City, where she is Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY) and a director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), a radical migrant-refugee “rights” organization.

She is also, say critics, connected to jihadi terrorists, such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and ISIS, and she is a self-proclaimed advocate of Sharia law for America. – The New American

So, Just WHAT were these women marching for?

What Has Happened to the Democratic Party in California?

“Nearly 30 years ago, an essay in Mother Jones magazine asked: “Would JFK Be a Hero Now?” If the answer wasn’t obvious then, it certainly is now. In today’s political environment, a candidate like JFK — a conservative champion of economic growth, tax cuts, limited government, peace through strength — plainly would be a hero. Whether he would be a Democrat is a different matter altogether.” -Boston Globe

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California

The California and National Democratic Party are no longer the Kennedy-Loving, Blue-Collar, Working Man’s Party of the People.

The Democratic Party used to be the Working Man’s Party of the People.

According to the Boston Globe,

“He (JFK) was anything but a big-spending, welfare-state liberal. “I do not believe that Washington should do for the people what they can do for themselves through local and private effort,” Kennedy bluntly avowed during the 1960 campaign. One of his first acts as president was to institute a pay cut for top White House staffers, and that was only the start of his budgetary austerity. “To the surprise of many of his appointees,” longtime aide Ted Sorensen would later write, he “personally scrutinized every agency request with a cold eye and encouraged his budget director to say ‘no.’

On the other hand, he was a Cold War anticommunist who aggressively increased military spending. He faulted his Republican predecessor for tailoring the nation’s military strategy to fit the budget, rather than the other way around. “We must refuse to accept a cheap, second-best defense,” JFK said during his run for the White House. He made good on that pledge, pushing defense spending to 50 percent of federal expenditures and 9 percent of GDP, both far higher than today’s levels. Speaking in Texas just hours before his death, he proudly took credit for building the US military into “a defense system second to none.”

It really is time to face Reality. The communist wing and welfare state of the Democratic Party is NOT working.

California Democrats Make Child Prostitution Legal…

California…The New Child Sex Trafficking Destination Hot Spot of The West…

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California

Say What?

Yep, wipe the cobwebs from your eyes…this is no California Dreamin’ story…

This is more equivalent to the STUFF of NIGHTMARES…and PART of the New California NIGHTMARE for ALL Children.

On January 1, 2017, with little fanfare and easy passage through the California Democrat-Controlled state legislature (⅔ super-majority), Senate Bill 1322, Commercial Sex Acts: Minors, goes into effect.

The full text of SB 1322 can be found here.

California legislators that supported the passage of SB 1322 can be found here.

And it IS just as BAD as it SOUNDS…

Sponsored by Democratic Senator, Holly Mitchell, SB 1322 decriminalizes any act of prostitution for children under 18. The State of California press Release says:

“The law is supposed to protect vulnerable children from adult abuse, yet we brand kids enmeshed in sex-for-pay with a scarlet ‘P’ and leave them subject to shame and prosecution,” said State Senator Holly J. Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), who introduced SB 1322. “This is our opportunity to do what we say is right in cases of sex trafficking: stop the exploiters and help the exploited.”

“The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions.”

But others that actually work with child sex trafficking victims, had this to say about Senate Bill 1322:

“As Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, a national leader on human trafficking issues, told the media, “It just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse.” Another prosecutor insightfully observed that if traffickers wrote legislation to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322.”

Just WHAT ARE these Children’s Rights that California Senator Richard Pan Speaks of?

Part 4 in the developing, “California State Senator Richard “The State Owns Your Child” Pan is At it Again…”

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

While California Senator Richard Pan is frantically sending out feel-good media propaganda pieces in a desperate attempt to cover-up the fact that Senate Bill 18 gives the state complete control over ALL California children, word is spreading.

Senate Bill 18 allows "professionals" approved by the state to make these decisions and more for your child.
Senate Bill 18 allows “professionals” approved by the state to make these decisions and more for your child.

In John Rappoport’s excellent article, Bombshell: sacrificing children to the state of California: SB18,” the unraveling of WHO and WHY is behind Senate Bill 18 becomes clear.

Rappoport says:

“Catch the flavor of the wording. It emerges like swamp gas: “The Legislature finds and declares that all children and youth, regardless of gender, class, race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, or ability, have inherent rights that entitle them to protection, special care, and assistance, including, but not limited to, the following: The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best interest. The right to form healthy attachments with adults responsible for their care and well-being. The right to live in a safe and healthy environment. The right to social and emotional well-being. The right to opportunities to attain optimal cognitive, physical, and social development. The right to appropriate, quality education and life skills leading to self-sufficiency in adulthood. The right to appropriate, quality health care.”

As if all these outcomes could be delivered to children on a silver platter.

And the State would make it so?

This bill is basically setting up the population of California for state regulatory agencies to fill in the blanks later, to make specific controls out of the vague generalities in the bill. Get it?  “Medical care and nutrition and parenting and education are what we say they are. We define and enforce, you obey.”

Rappoport goes on to explain WHERE all of this is coming from:

Communism, Common Sense, and What Senator Richard Pan Intends For California’s Children…

Part 3 in the developing, “California State Senator Richard “The State Owns Your Child” Pan is At it Again…”

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California  

According to the US Supreme Court in the 1979 Parham Versus J.R Case:

img_6618

California Senator Richard Pan’s attack on Californian’s Parental Rights has morphed into an all out assault on family and religious rights – in complete defiance of the US Constitution.

Senate Bill 18 is the culmination of all of a totalitarian socialist state’s hatred for liberty and freedom.

Called a “Spot Bill,” Senate Bill 18 is, according to the California legislative analyst, a bill that amends a code section in such an innocuous way as to be totally nonsubstantive. The bill has been introduced to assure that a germane vehicle will be available at a later date after the deadline has passed to introduce bills. At that future date, the bill can be amended with more substance included.

Senate Bill 18 is dangerous because it is made to look not harmful or offensive, so that it might pass easily.

Senate Bill 18 allows "professionals" approved by the state to make these decisions and more for your child.
Senate Bill 18 allows “professionals” approved by the state to make these decisions, and more, for your child.

This bill is the FOUNDATION for the rules and regulations that Senator Richard Pan will add at a later date; most likely under the radar and away from the prying eyes of the public.

Senator Pan currently sits on 17 different state committees, including the Children with Special Needs committee, which is ironic considering all of the additional vaccine injuries that his Senate Bill 277 has caused.

Senator Pan has a lot of influence in Sacramento and with the other California Senators.

Many believe that since Senator Pan has strong ties to Big Pharma that he intends to add MANY REQUIRED Medical Interventions for Children.

Just WHO IS Sponsoring California State Senator Richard Pan’s Destruction of Parental Rights?

 Part 2  in the developing, “California State Senator Richard “The State Owns Your Child” Pan is At it Again…”

Opinion By Karri Lewis AWAKE California

As if hell bent on destroying the family unit; and enacting the state of California as guardian (sic) of ALL of the state’s children, Senator Richard Pan wasted no time in beginning another attack on parental rights.

Senate Bill 18 is a parent’s worst nightmare come true.

In a townhall event put on by Senator Richard Pan in June 2016, it was announced that James P. Steyer from Common Sense Media was co-hosting the, “Talk with Experts and Provide your Input on the Children’s Bill of Rights Legislation,” advertised event.

Jim Steyer Common Sense Media
Jim Steyer Common Sense Media

The flyer with that information can be found here.

This describes the non-profit, Common Sense Media’s mission statement according to Wikipedia:

“Common Sense Media reviews thousands of movies, TV shows, music, video games, apps, web sites and books. Based on developmental criteria, the reviews provide guidance regarding each title’s age appropriateness, as well as a “content grid” that rates particular aspects of the title including educational value, violence, sex, gender messages and role models, and more. For each title, Common Sense Media indicates the age for which a title is either appropriate or most relevant. An overall five-star quality rating is also included, as are discussion questions to help families talk about their entertainment. In addition to Common Sense Media’s traditional rating system, they also offer a set of learning based ratings, which are designed to determine complex educational values.[7][10]

Common Sense Media partners with a number of media companies that distribute the organization’s free content to more than 100 million homes in the United States. According to Common Sense Media’s website, the organization has content distribution contracts with Road Runner, TiVo, Yahoo!, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, DIRECTV, Disney, NBC Universal, Netflix, Best Buy, Google, AOL/Huffington Post, Fandango, Trend Micro, Verizon Foundation, Nickelodeon, Bing, Cox Communications, Kaleidescape, AT&T, and NCM.[11] The organization’s current rating system differs from the system used by the Motion Picture Association of America and the Entertainment Software Rating Board. It has received positive support from parents, and was singled out by US President Barack Obama as a model for using technology to empower parents.[12][13] Common Sense Media began allowing studios to use their ratings and endorsements in order to promote family-friendly movies in 2014. The first film to use the endorsement was Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.[14]”

Why on earth would Common Sense Media, a supposedly family friendly company, support the stealing of parental rights by the state of California via Senator Richard Pan?

Back to that question in a second.

Anyone noticing a theme here?

Introduced by Senator Pan on December 5, 2016, this is where Senate Bill 18 comes into play.

A Few Things, California…

Gearing Up for a Coalition?

Opinion By Karri Lewis – AWAKE California

While the people of California have some challenging times ahead of them in the fight for health freedom, there are folks that are gathering and willing to work together with TRANSPARENCY and PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY.

Why is THIS so Important?

In Peter McCarthy’s recent blog post, “The Texas Health Freedom Coalition (THFC): “Who we are, why we work together in Texas, and how we came to do that….”, McCarthy explains the WHY and HOW the 55,000 member Texas Health Freedom Coalition became extremely successful:

The four areas of agreement…
02B77214
55.000 Member Texas Health Freedom Coalition Guides Texas State legislation and more…

(1)  The meeting was significant in a number of ways. First, the participants agreed to cooperate under the umbrella of the newly formed Texas Health Freedom Coalition (THFC).

The rationale was that a large umbrella organization acting cooperatively would be more influential, by virtue of their greater numbers, at the state legislature than a number of smaller groups, and simultaneously would be less vulnerable to attacks by the trade union organizations seeking to monopolize various segments of the health care field.

(2)  Second, since the THFC would be the actor of record, the credit for victories and advances would be shared among the groups as a coalition. Each group would play its own meaningful role, and it was agreed that no single group would claim primary credit. As Radhia so aptly stated, “united we stand, divided we fall.”

(3)  Third, our interactions among the groups would be transparent. While each group would, of course, continue to operate within their own governing structure, their THFC-related activities and decisions would be visible to all. No behind-the-scenes jockeying for advantage, no intramural squabbles, and no ego trips.

(4)  Fourth, the groups agreed to work together on issues of common interest, with no public criticism of another group’s individual organizational agendas. Those common interest items were two: advancing health freedom of choice legislation in Texas and opposing the Texas dietitians who, as it turned out, had betrayed the clinical nutritionists and were now pursuing exclusionary licensing legislation benefiting only themselves.

Additionally, every one of the Texas leaders attending that meeting did so in their collective capacity as volunteers. There were no professional state level organizational leaders, which meant that no one had an overriding personal (i.e., economic) agenda.

The final agenda item was the selection of the THFC chair. To my surprise, I was asked to fill that position. In hindsight, it made sense. The combination of my military/organizational background and the equally important fact that I represented no organization other than one advocating strictly for health freedom meant that I could assume the role of honest broker, should any intramural disputes arise.

Millions of California Children, Immunocompromised; Put at Risk by the California State Legislature’s Compulsory Vaccine Schedule

Opinion by Karri Lewis

Under the guise of protecting the immunocompromised, last year the California State Legislature passed senate bill 277 and senate bill 792.

Senate bill 277 took away people’s informed consent rights by eliminating the personal and religious belief exemptions for the vaccines required for a public and private education.

http://www.nvic.org/nvic-vaccine-news/august-2015/sb277-fallout-what-happens-next.aspx

Senate bill 792, also targeted adults, which includes; preschool teachers, day care workers and parent volunteers, for removal of informed consent rights, in regards to compulsory vaccination.

http://parentsrightscalifornia.weebly.com/ca-sb-792-forced-adult-vaccines.html

The MOST ABHORRENT  part of this whole usurping of parental AND adult rights, was the claim that the immunocompromised, need UNRELIABLE, UNSCIENTIFICALLY-PROVEN Vaccine-Induced HERD IMMUNITY for their protection.

California Vaccine-Injured Children and Their Families; Discriminated Against Statewide By the California State Legislature

Opinion By Karri Lewis – AWAKE California

DISCRIMINATION is a dirty word in politics today. California, generally a very liberal state, tends to FROWN UPON Discrimination.

So Why are Countless Vaccine Damaged Children and Their Families Facing DISCRIMINATION when it comes to a PRIVATE or PUBLIC EDUCATION?

And why would Democrats, the supposed party of CARE and CONCERN, encourage DISCRIMINATION against vulnerable, defenseless, vaccine-injured children and their families?

The California Democratic Party voted last year to include FORCED VACCINATION MANDATES as part of their party platform.

See here:

California Vaccine Mandates and The Boiled Frog Effect

By Karri Lewis – AWAKE California

 

Do you remember that old “science” experiment where a frog immediately jumps out of a pot of boiling water when placed directly into that boiling water?

However, when the frog is placed in a pot of cold water and the temperature of the water is very slowly raised to a boil, the frog stays in the pot and boils to death?

At this point, you’re probably wondering what this has to do with California, vaccine mandates, and BOUGHT, Pharmaceutical-owned politicians?

Stay with me here.

Imagine now that the frog is the public at large, the boiling water represents vaccine mandates and the Pharmaceutical Industry; and the cold water represents the California State government.

This is ALL very good imagery to explain HOW the Pharmaceutical companies became so entangled and enmeshed within the California State government.

Like the frog being brought to a boil, slowly, the California public has been led to forced vaccination medical experimentation and mandates.

Vaccines and the mandates that followed, were very slowly foisted upon the gullible and unsuspecting public. Continue reading California Vaccine Mandates and The Boiled Frog Effect
