Tuesday, August 18, 2020 is likely to be one of the most important days of my life…
It’s the day so many projects I’ve been working on come to fruition. I feel it is a day of battle for me, and for all of us.
I understand one of the unique things about me is I think in movie terms. It’s an odd habit, but probably pretty common for writers. As I’ve thought about what’s waiting for me in the near future I was drawn to this scene in The Last Samurai.
If you haven’t seen the movie I’ll give you a brief overview. It’s 1877, and soldier of fortune, Tom Cruise/Nathan Algren, a former Civil War hero and Indian fighter, has been hired by the government of Japan to put down a samurai rebellion. Cruise is captured in battle by the samurai and comes to realize he’s fighting on the wrong side of this war.
The samurai believe Japan is losing its identity by contact with the west, which seeks to exploit it. The samurai choose not to fight with modern weapons like guns, but with the honorable weapons of the samurai. This puts strategist Tom Cruise in the position of trying to figure out how the samurai might defeat their enemies.
Cruise/Algren befriends the samurai general, Katsumoto, played by the wonderful actor, Ken Watanabe, and here they plan the first day of the battle.
I love this movie because as much as it’s a thrilling action picture, it’s also deeply philosophical. It asks, “What is the value of our lives? To what principles do we dedicate ourselves? And how much will we sacrifice?”
The answer from the perspective of the heroic journey, as popularized by Joseph Campbell is clear:
If you seek to be a hero, you must be willing to risk your life, without complaint or anger. You surrender to whatever destiny awaits you.
I’ve been warned several times by people who care deeply for me that I’m putting myself at risk with my provocations and the books I write. I’m aware of these risks, but must say I am indifferent to them.
I am a person of faith. I have surrendered myself to whatever path God sees fit for me to follow. And I am at peace.
On Tuesday, August 18, 2020, the hardcover copy of The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Mask Use Should be Limited, will be released.
On that same day, the cartoonist Ben Garrison will be releasing a cartoon to support the book (he did all the artwork in our book) to his more than 200,000 Twitter followers.
Later that night, Dr. Mikovits and will be appearing on Coast to Coast AM to talk about the book to their three million listeners. For those who have been asking me to provide the link to the book in the articles I write, here you go. If you don’t like Amazon, please feel free to go to Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million websites.
I’ve been saying for a few days I wouldn’t be surprised if conspiracy theorists suspected Democratic nominee for President, Joe Biden, was secretly on my payroll…
..after he suggested a “three-month nationwide masking mandate,” just five days before the release of our book.
I was talking with a friend and mentioned how fortunate this was, as Biden’s action insures this will become a political issue, pitting democrats against republicans. In the past it’s been clear democrats are enemies of the health freedom movement, but the republicans have not shown themselves to be our friends. These actions may change that dynamic, I argued to my friend.
“This isn’t about democrats versus republicans,” my friend replied. “This is good versus evil. Tyranny versus freedom.”
I said I agreed. I do think in those terms, but I usually don’t write about them. Most of the time I prefer to keep my spiritual beliefs to myself. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have them, or try to live according to them.
On the same day, August 18, 2020, that our mask book is being released, the complete documentary for PLANDEMIC: INDOCTORNATION, is being released by the film-maker, Mikki Willis.
His previous, twenty-six minute interview with Dr. Mikovits had more than a BILLION views. And yes, I wrote the opening narration for that piece.
I was interviewed at length for PLANDEMIC:INDOCTORNATION, told I did very well, and we’ll see how much screen time I get. Honestly, I don’t care. It’s simply enough for me to know I have carried this story faithfully for nearly ten years, and now so many other people are picking it up and placing it into their narratives. Here is that link:
I don’t think I’m revealing too much by telling you in the past few months, Dr. Mikovits and I have acquired some very powerful friends.
I’d long hoped for this day to come. But in addition to the enormous power of these new allies, I believe them to be of good character.
In one of the conversations, a powerful figure with whom I’m working told me abut his past. “I used to be an atheist, a skeptic,” he said. “I had little patience for those who didn’t share my beliefs. I’d be merciless in questioning why they had faith, and openly mock them for having it. I was a materialist, straight down the line. But then I had a number of experiences and one of my friends asked, ‘Why are you so afraid of having faith?’ I had to think a lot about that question. And the answer I came up with was that if I believed, it also meant I had a responsibility to take action. I will someday be judged on whether I took that action.”
Perhaps it’s just me, but those are the conversations that bond me deeply to a person on a soul level.
I’ve been honored at the powerful people who are stepping forward in this fight. I tell each one of them, “I’m not looking for Superman, I’m looking for a team of Avengers. We all have a part in this fight.”
I often tell my wife I look for historical examples to guide me in this struggle. The best example I’ve found is Eisenhower in his role as Supreme Allied Commander in the Second World War, when he had to keep the fractious, multi-party alliance together to defeat Hitler and the Nazis. Some days I’m sure he felt like punching his fist through a wall in frustration.
I’ve often felt the same when one person says they will “absolutely not work” with some other member of our alliance over some perceived slight or difference in opinion.
But more often than not, I feel genuinely optimistic. The stars have aligned to give us a day of battle, my friends.
I call upon each one of you to use your intelligence, bravery, and heart to make sure this day is not wasted.
