💉 The Ottawa Citizen ran a hopeful story this morning headlined, “Suspended detective accused of seeking links between child deaths and COVID-19 vaccines set to return to work, lawyer says; OPS says no timeline set.”

There appears to be some disagreement between the lawyer and the police department, but the Ottawa police detective accused of seeking links between children’s deaths and covid jabs may have her suspension rescinded soon, her lawyer said Tuesday.

Back in February, the investigator became the investigated when Ottawa police detective Helen Grus was accused of “conducting an unauthorized investigation.” Helen, assigned to the SIDS unit, investigated infant sudden death cases. On a hunch in 2022, Helen started asking the bereaved mothers if they’d recently gotten the covid jab or a booster. She started finding a connection, and began looking into other investigators’ cases trying to find a common denominator in the jabs. When her department found out what Helen was up to, they charged her with "discreditable conduct” and commenced a human resources trial to get her fired or demoted (apparently that’s how it works in Canada public service).

Helen has been suspended since February.

The Ottawa Citizen reported in August that Helen was accused of investigating nine SIDS cases she wasn’t assigned to (she was trying to figure out the mother’s vaccination status). Her bosses were especially triggered that, in one case where the mother couldn’t be reached, Helen called the father asking for details. Imagine that.

In March one of the mothers — “Karen” — was notified by Helen’s department that Helen has accessed Karen’s baby’s death records, and that Helen was not the assigned investigating officer. So Karen told the Ottawa Citizen she felt her privacy had been violated and expressed outrage at all the terrific support Helen has received from people opposed to mandatory jabbing.

The details are a little murky, but from what I can tell, Helen’s trial is set to continue the first week of December, but she has an upcoming meeting with the department where her return to work will be “discussed,” including “potential restrictions and conditions” on her if she is allowed to return from suspension. A department spokesman confirmed that Helen remains suspended for now, and there’s been no decision yet about her coming back to work.

This story should have gotten more visibility earlier this year. Helen’s friends setup a GiveSendGo to help with her legal expenses, and it has not done as well as it should. I’m not calling for a multiplier, but I did chip in. Here’s the link if you also want to give detective Helen a little C&C love this morning. (Note it’s in Canadian dollars, and watch out for the automatic ’tip’.)

Changing the rotten Status Quo would be surprisingly easy

It would take just one captured entity breaking free from their captors. ...

Question: How easy would it be to expose the most epic and harmful health scandals of our lifetimes?

My answer: It would be incredibly easy for any number of organizations to accomplish this goal. ...

The undisputed leader of “pack journalism” is the The New York Times. If the army of investigative journalists at The Times took the lead and investigated the myriad Covid scandals, they’d probably expose 20 epic scandals in a month or two.

If the newspaper’s publisher and editors were so inclined, The Times does possess the resources, manpower and gravitas to expose the truth on, say, unsafe vaccines, iatrogenic deaths, the concealment and manipulation of key health statistics, etc.

As it turns out, most of the key research has already been done by alternative media skeptics; all of the key dots have pretty much been connected and mapped out. All The Times journalists would have to do is tie everything up into a nice, easy-to-grasp bow.

All they’d have to do is follow the evidence, ask authority figures a series of hard questions they’ve never been asked before and find a few smoking guns from emails, whistleblowers, etc.

Furthermore, if The New York Times took the lead on this project, this might give license to colleagues at other “news” organizations to launch simultaneous investigations. If even half of the country’s mainstream news organization suddenly started investigating the same scandals, the “bad guys” wouldn’t have a prayer.

The New York Times could expose all the Covid scandals by itself … if it wanted to. If other news organizations joined the fight, the time it would take to definitively expose these scandals would be dramatically reduced.

We know this isn’t going to happen, but - for what it’s worth - it could … easily. ...

The reason our awful Status Quo is our awful Status Quo is that most of the “people’s representatives” don’t want to perform this role. However, for the record, they could do this - easily, with their hands tied behind their backs … if they wanted to.

People Are Dying The Senate Doesn't Care
Senator Babet, Posted October 19, 2023

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: Senator Ralph Babet (United Australia Party) represents Victoria in the Australian Senate. https://www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members/Parliamentarian?MPID=300706.


SENATOR RALPH BABET: Thank you, Acting Deputy President. So in March of this year, March this year, I asked the Senate to establish a select committee to investigate excess deaths and unexplained mortality in our nation. Now at that time there had been tens of thousands, tens of thousands of excess deaths reported since back in 2022.

Now it was like a full passenger plane, a big one, one of those jet, jet aircraft crashing every single week for 11 months without explanation and without investigation. Yet incredibly, the Senate refused. Only four senators, just four, had the courage to back my committee. Four.

Now it wasn't just the Senate that was determined to ignore the elephant in the room, with a few honorable exceptions, it was the entire political class in Australia and at every level.

Now thankfully, there was one group that didn't turn their back on the Australian people in their time of need, the medical experts at the Australian Medical Professionals' Society, otherwise known as AMPS.* So they stepped up to the plate, they did the hard work that my colleagues in this place, unfortunately and shamefully, refused to do.

Now they have put their findings in a book titled Too Many Dead: An Inquiry into Australia's Excess Mortality. Now this is bound to attract attention around the world. Now as I speak in this chamber, AMPS are here in Canberra presenting their finding to elected members and senators and their staff.

Now I urge my colleagues in this place to have a heart, hopefully one that's not scarred with myocarditis, vaccine-induced myocarditis, to take the time to listen to these medical experts, and most importantly, to act. The time has come to act.

Australians still continue to die in large numbers. And unfortunately, the inaction in this place, it speaks volumes.

Thank you.

We got a huge victory this week with Speaker Johnson, who was possibly the biggest opponent of the 2020 Steal in Congress, but if we don't push for immediate action on these issues, they very likely will get lost in the shuffle with more fighting over funding for bullshit wars and other budget showdowns. These are THE most important issues facing the country right now.


1. The House open a comprehensive investigation into the 2020 and 2022 election fraud

2. The J6 Tapes be immediately released to the public

3. The DOJ be defunded or otherwise reined in until these witch hunts against Presiden Trump and his supporters end

Let's strike while the iron's hot!


We owe Matt Gaetz and his compatriots bigtime for what they managed to pull off. Please send their campaigns some cash if you are able (Except Ken Buck), or maybe even sign up to volunteer for their next campaign if you happen to live nearby one of their districts.

The GOP RINOs will do everything they can to kneecap these guys going forward (remember Madison Cawthorne?), so they will need our help. They took a huge gamble for us and the country, and it appears to have paid off.


(Matt is one of the only congressmen who doesn't take any money from PACs or lobbyists - all he has is small donors, so please give generously if you are able.)













Never Forgive, Never Forget the Traitorous Twenty Five
These RINOs who sabotaged Jim Jordan should not be forgiven, just because things seem to have worked out okay. We very easily could have ended up with a speaker McHenry, Romney or Cheney.

This is a "Scorpion and the Frog" situation - they've revealed their true allegiance to the Swamp over their country. We should donate time and funds to all of their primary opponents over the coming months:

Rep. Don Bacon, of Nebraska, voted for Speaker Pro Tempore Patrick McHenry, of North Carolina.

Rep. Vern Buchanan, of Florida, voted for Rep. Byron Donalds, of Florida.

Rep. Ken Buck, of Colorado, voted for Rep. Tom Emmer, of Minnesota.

Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRamer, voted for McHenry.

Rep. Anthony D'Esposito, of New York, voted for former Rep. Lee Zeldin.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, of Florida, voted for Rep. Steve Scalise, of Louisiana.

Rep. Jake Ellzey, of Texas, voted for Rep. Mike Garcia, of California.

Rep. Drew Ferguson, of Georgia, voted for Scalise.

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, of Pennsylvania, voted for McHenry.

Rep. Andrew Garbarino, of New York, voted for Zeldin.

Rep. Carlos Giménez, of Florida, voted for Rep. Kevin McCarthy, of California.

Rep. Tony Gonzales, of Texas, voted for Scalise.

Rep. Kay Granger, of Texas, voted for Scalise.

Rep. John James, of Michigan, voted for Donalds.

Rep. Thomas Kean, of New Jersey, voted for McCarthy.

Rep. Mike Kelly, of California, voted for Scalise.

Rep. Jennifer Kiggans, of Virginia, voted for McHenry.

Rep. Nick LaLota, of New York, voted for Zeldin.

Rep. Michael Lawler, of New York, voted for McHenry.

Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, of Iowa, voted for McHenry.

Rep. Marcus Molinaro, of New York, voted for Zeldin.

Rep. John Rutherford, of Florida, voted for Scalise.

Rep. Michael Simpson, of Idaho, voted for Scalise.

Rep. Pete Stauber, of Minnesota, voted for Rep. Bruce Westerman, of Arkansas.

Rep. Steve Womack, of Arkansas, voted for Scalise.

As always, feel free to post any new ideas you have on fighting fraud or getting our ballots banked.

Here's the archive of our previous ideas:

Ideas to approach your community’s lesser magistrates:
1. Look up on the internet who your county commissioners are and their county clerk. On their website you can see the usual meeting times, agendas and contact numbers.

2. Call the county clerk and ask how would someone get on the agenda at the board of commissioners meeting and ask if zoom is available for others that you would like to join you to speak at the board of commissioners meeting.

3. The clerk will share how to get on the agenda, and they will often offer 3-15 minutes for you on the agenda. You can take that time to speak or if you need more time, such as for a presentation from a science and medical team, or any other subject matter expert, you can let them know for your subject matter you really need about 30 minutes or more and ask how would it be possible for a very important issue.

4. The clerk will ask you what the subject of your presentation…. and you can share that it’s regarding the multiple adverse effects of the genetic covid shot to your community or friends and family, and that it is on the childhood schedule currently. You would like to have some subject matter experts present to your commissioners in an appeal to your lesser magistrates regarding the danger of contaminated genetic shots. Sometimes that will be enough and sometimes the clerk will ask you to reach out to the commissioner chair for permission to be on the agenda.

5. You make want to simply share that you would like them to watch a video of the presentation, or you may want the group of subject matter experts to present on zoom … let us know and we will help as much as we can to get you presenters no matter how rural or urban your county may be. We the People 50 can be some of your subject matter experts but give the group a few weeks to put your meeting on our schedule and line up testimony.

6. Have a small speech, less than 4 minutes, prepared when you speak that is timed and practiced so you can stand strong in front of the board and possible crowd. Have a resolution or action item letter to present at your meeting for their team to consider, sign and send to your AG or Governors office Etc. This may take two visits to your board, the first to educate, the second visit to present our resolution or action letter as an action item.

7. You can also approach your local state legislators, your Attorney General, Governor, your sheriff, your health district boards, your school boards, and even your US legislators with a similar approach of simply calling and asking how to do it.

8. If you are given time with a legislative aide at the US legislators office… realize that they are the workers, researchers, and the opinion drivers of your US Rep or Senator. It is worth your time to connect and share your valuable information with them.

9. Remember to be sincere, polite, and have no fear. The territory that you approach is often opposition or at best neutral territory. Prayer, having a friend go with you to be in the room as moral support, and putting on the whole armor of God will be helpful.

A book that conveys the value, authority and duty of your lesser magistrates is “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates” by Matthew Trewhella.

Conservatives also must discover whether corporate commitments to critical race theory, gender ideology, and “diversity, equity, and inclusion” are superficial or deeply held. The basic formula for determining a boycott’s success is whether “economic pressure” and “image pressure” are stronger than a firm’s “policy commitment.”

In the years ahead, conservatives will be able to measure these forces more accurately. If American companies are using left-wing ideology for cynical and fleeting purposes, conservatives could continue to secure victories in the corporate sphere. If, on the other hand, corporations are authentically committed to left-wing cultural ideology, and these commitments are cemented in corporate life through countervailing pressure, bureaucratic necessity, and civil-rights law, conservatives will need to fight even harder to tip the scales.

Washington County, Idaho, Signed the Resolution to Advise AGAINST Genetic Covid-19 "Vaccines" on Child Schedule

Yesterday, Michelle sent me one of the best ideas I’ve yet seen for pushing back against the Alphabet Army that I’ve seen in a long time, designed by attorney Mike Yoder. It starts with the “straight flag,” which I didn’t even know was a thing:

Yoder’s idea is not to try to cancel the rainbow flag or even attack it at all. The strategy is to teach normal kids to ask teachers to also hang up the “straight flag;” the flag that represents them and their beliefs. Obviously, woke teachers will obstinately refuse. Yoder, bless him, put together a ‘packet’ of case law and materials instructing parents, students and teachers about how viewpoint discrimination violates the Constitution.

If teachers hang a pride flag, they must also hang up a straight flag (at least, upon request).

If, after getting the packet, the teacher still refuses to hang the straight flag, it becomes intentional discrimination. Straight students can get a court order requiring the teacher to hang up the heterosexual flag, stop discriminating against them, and probably awarding their attorney’s fees. It’s so clear that I’d bet a pointedly-written demand letter to the school board would do the trick in most cases.

It seems pretty clear the ultimate result of a national straight-flag movement would be the banning of all sex-preference flags. Which would be great.

Petition request
That the House of Representatives ban mRNA-based vaccines and medical interventions in humans and animals in New Zealand.

Petition reason
I believe that: mRNA therapeutics pose potentially catastrophic dangers; a recent study of the risks of mRNA vaccination shows that it can modify the human genome; many other aspects of mRNA-based therapies are unknown; the human genome is the very genetic blueprint of every individual, defines our health and well-being, and should be an inviolable entity. In the past New Zealand has taken a pioneering position on the use of nuclear arms. We should do so now for mRNA-based interventions.

The link to the petition is here: https://petitions.parliament.nz/63b1d0e8-8c99-4fba-4f8f-08dbde376730

I can think of few actions more necessary or noble for a country to take at this time.

Since any person — including non-New Zealand citizens — may petition New Zealand’s Parliament, of any age, I urge you to sign and distribute this as widely as possible.

... plenty of good election news continued trickling in yesterday, especially from local races. Since as you know, my ‘anti-Superman’ electoral philosophy is “local, local, local,” I was heartened and gratified to see many local races flipping conservative. For one encouraging example, the plucky group Moms for Liberty (a collection of domestic terrorists if ever I saw any) reported winning no fewer than +50 school board seats yesterday, and +90 more before that just in 2023:


If you want to know what is really in Republicans’ way it is ‘superman’ worship. I’m begging folks. I don’t know how better I can explain it. Trump, DeSantis, RFK, I don’t care. The over-focus on presidential politics is distracting people from actually fixing the nation’s problems.

Don’t believe me? Do you remember who it was that declared you, your church, and your small businesses were “non-essential?” Hmm?

It wasn’t President Trump. It wasn’t even Fauci. It was your local county commissioner, that’s who! Wake up! The feds only published guidelines. In most states, local politicians used their broad emergency powers to pull the country’s economic plug, and now look where we are.

Think! It’s not the clueless, shambolic idiot infesting the White House who is loading bookshelves with revolting gay porn and promoting aging, unattractive cross-dressers in the kids’ sections of your local libraries. It’s the local library board. It’s not Governor Beshear or Replacement Governor Hochul or even Oleaginous Governor Newsom instructing teachers to lie to parents about their kids experiencing dysphoric mental illness.

It’s the local school board.

When folks become completely fascinated by one person as their political ‘savior’ — whether it’s Trump, Beshear, DeSantis, whoever — they cheapen politics, turning civic participation into a rah-rah sporting event. They forget all about the fundamentals. Folks say they hate the uni-party, but that’s a lazy excuse for inaction. There’s no uni-party in local politics.

The national uni-party convinces folks to root for a single person, turning presidential politics into the Super Bowl, so folks will get so distracted they won’t do the work to take and keep control of their own home towns.

Before he retired, antihuman billionaire Scrooge McSoros dumped more of his money into local races than on national races. Why do you suppose he did that? Why do you think the big blue cities are now all experiencing controlled demolition? You don’t think it was a coincidence, do you? You don’t think that nincompoop Biden did it?

Sure, Governors and Presidents have roles to play. Having a good one is especially helpful in the short run, like in emergencies, like how Governor DeSantis did in Florida during the pandemic.

But local is where everything important starts. Local citizens first cut their teeth on politics as city commissioners, mayors, tax collectors, and supervisors of elections. It’s a meritocracy. As they gain political experience, the best local ones run for state offices. As they prove themselves at the state level, the best state-level ones percolate up and run for national office or high state office, like for governor. National-level politicians who last get appointed into federal agencies, or to run universities, or into other top federal offices. It’s simple:

Local —> State —> National —> President, Agency, University, etc.

(Sure, there are exceptions, but that’s the core political formula, and always has been.)

This simple formula has somehow become a secret that the uni-party conceals from everybody while we’re all distracted by the latest, greatest Superman. But if everyone could just focus on the quality of the beginning of the pipeline, at the local level, everything else would follow along naturally. Want secure elections? Then first, secure the supervisor of elections positions and the district attorney jobs.

That’s what that awful George Soros did. You can see the result.

Think about politics as if it were an investment strategy. In investment circles, they talk about default portfolio ratios. The basic idea is, to maximize return on investment, investors should keep a certain proportion of assets in cash, a certain percentage in real estate, a percentage in stocks, and a small part, say 10%, in high-risk, long-shot opportunities.

You could think about politics the same way. To get the best return on a political investment, folks should allocate seventy percent of their time and money to local races. Twenty percent should go to state-level races. And a little bit, ten percent, into national races, including for president. I made those numbers up, but you get the idea.

To be clear, I’m not saying the next presidential race is unimportant. The issue is a matter of proportion, of how we invest our limited time and treasure.

So, pretty please with organic whipped cream on top, could we try investing more time securing local offices, like helping sane moms get elected to school boards, and spend less time arguing with each other over which Superman should be the next Republican presidential candidate?

Let’s reverse the ‘Soros scheme.’

I’ve applied Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle to litigation. It’s not a perfect analogy, but I refer to a peculiar feature of human psychology as the “Heisenberg Effect.” Put simply: people act differently when they know they are being watched. And usually, they act nicer, more moral, more fair, and more lawful.

It is often significant in litigation, like when I review evidence. For instance, I always look for a demarcation point in emails, between a time when the participants were chatting freely and then the point where they realized that eventually someone else would probably be reading their correspondence. (Usually at that point they start talking a lot less).

In addition to helping figure out why people did certain things in the past, the Heisenberg Effect can also be used as a tool. You can make people act differently, better, by deliberately increasing their consciousness that someone else is paying close attention to what they are doing in a certain area.

In that way, the Heisenberg Effect can be wielded politically. When government officials know we are watching them about a specific topic, their behavior in that area improves. For example, the DOJ might hire more staff to handle CICP cases when it knows that a judge will soon be considering how well-staffed the program is. Or, legislators who just voted to table an impeachment vote can learn that they need to be more careful about border issues because irritable voters care. Some of them might even vote differently — better — next time.

So, it’s not always about the short-term, like winning a particular lawsuit or convincing an official to change their current position with a phone call. Often the Heisenberg Effect delivers results in the long-term, as the cumulative benefit from slightly more careful, slightly-better conduct adds up over time.

Never underestimate the value of just paying obvious attention to what government actors are doing. And, although it works just as well on spouses, coworkers, neighbors, and kids, be sure to apply the Heisenberg Effect to your home town officials as part of our “local, local, local” strategy.

The pharmaceutical industry knew that they were losing in court in the 1970s and early 1980s when it came to lawsuits over harms from vaccines.

In 1986, they got Congress to pass the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and that gave them liability protection. You cannot take the pharmaceutical industry to court if your child is harmed by a vaccine because of the 1986 Act. There is a separate court system which doesn't work very well. The government stands in on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry, rather than the pharmaceutical industry representing itself.

The way to solve the problem of toxic vaccines being forced upon the population is to remove liability protection for the pharmaceutical industry. Put it back into the courts. Let's fight it out in the courts. Let's have a conversation about the data in the courts in an adversarial system, not with the CDC and the FDA that are captured. But you would have to repeal the 1986 Act. You would also have to repeal the PREP Act that happened in the early 2000s after the events of 9/11.

If we do that, the pharmaceutical industry would have an incentive to create safer vaccines. Right now the only incentive is to add as many vaccines as possible to the schedule because it's all profit. There's no risk because they can't be taken to court right now. That's how we should deal with the pharmaceutical industry.
