The Shot Heard Round The World



At Concord Bridge in 1775, a revolution started when a handful of American colonists stood up, refused the King’s orders, and said they would make their own decisions about how to live their lives. The ripple effects changed the world.

The next American revolution may have just begun, not at Concord but at Target.

Within the last few days, an employee of Target went to work and – sick and tired of having her rights trampled upon – refused to wear her mask as directed by her employer. She informed her manager that she would not comply with his directive to wear the mask, that there was no scientific basis for the rule, and that there was no legal authority, which would allow him to enforce it. The employee added that she was in contact with the legal team at America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) specifically an attorney named Tom Rentz, and had retained his services.

The Target manager directed the woman in question to go home and advised she was being terminated. Within 24 hours she was contacted at home and called back into work. The mask requirement was dropped. Apparently, somebody at Target’s legal department knew the name Tom Rentz and had bothered to check the law.

Since the outset of the pandemic the American people have been subjected to a whole series of restrictions imposed, allegedly to control the spread of COVID-19 and keep us safe. All of these have been justified in the name of “science” by which proponents appear less to mean a rational thought process than a new religion and a government-mandated orthodoxy.

None of the claims for a scientific basis for the control measures have ever been true. There never has been any substantial science to justify these actions, and the American people, patient but steeped in common sense, have now begun clearly to see that this is true.

Lockdowns of healthy people, which early on became the key feature of our pandemic control measures have never been utilized in dealing with previous pandemics. They were never part of planning in the United States for dealing with a threat of this type. They were imposed, largely by recommendation of bureaucrats like Fauci, after the Chinese Communist Party decided to lock down its own population. Demonstrably, as seen most recently in Texas they do not work and appear largely counterproductive.

Masks were imposed upon us based on the idea that we were surrounded by hordes of strangers who, despite the fact that they showed no symptoms of the disease could be spreading it asymptomatically. The fact is there has never been any credible body of evidence to show that COVID-19 is even passed asymptomatically. On the contrary, the evidence suggests strongly it does not and never has.

Masks themselves, appear at best dubious physical measures anyway. We don’t have any real data to suggest they work effectively. We do by this point have lots of indications that they become covered in dirt and bacteria, restrict airflow and produce all sorts of negative psychological impacts.

Undeterred, however, the autocratic proponents of “science” have now determined to issue yet another edict. Now, we must be vaccinated. Anyone who resists is ignorant, presumably Neanderthal and deserving of no consideration. We may or may not have vaccine passports but one way or the other you will be made to comply or find that your life is unlivable.

You won’t be able to shop for food. You won’t be able to travel. You won’t be able to hold a job.

The price of being allowed to live your life? Participate in what amounts to a giant clinical trial in which you are the lab rat.

FDA Approval Vs FDA Emergency Use Authorization

None of the three vaccines in use in the United States have been approved or licensed by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) via the normal process by which drugs reach the market. All of them are currently available via an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) only.

If you have taken the vaccine you have taken an experimental drug. Even Anthony Fauci has emphasized the significance of this point.

“I hope they do it quickly (approve the covid shots), because … people when they hear it’s still emergency use, they still have a little concern about how far you can go with it.”

The FDA allowed companies to begin testing the COVID-19 vaccines on humans before the completion of any animal trials. Instead, all three companies were allowed to proceed with human trials and those were completed in less than a year. Press reporting has suggested the animal trials were terminated when the animals kept dying.

No large trials of any of the vaccines now being marketed have been completed yet. The only evidence on the safety of the vaccines comes from small phase I and phase II trials of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines, with follow-up typically less than two months. There is as yet insufficient evidence to support any conclusions on their comparative dangers.

As a consequence, as with many of the other COVID-19 restrictions, there is actually no legal authority for mandating the taking of any of the vaccines on the market. By definition, as the vaccines are experimental, their use can be refused. No one can be ordered to participate in a medical experiment. We prosecuted Nazis for exactly this kind of thing after the Second World War at Nuremberg.

As the American colonists suffered under British tyranny for many years before the breaking point at Concord, so have American citizens today suffered at the hands of their own government. They, like their forefathers, have demonstrated incredible patience even as that patience has work thin.

Americans are patient no longer. They are standing up, asserting their rights, pushing back, and making clear they will no longer comply. The oligarchs may have in mind that they can simply continue this tyranny forever with masks, social distancing, and most hideously of all vaccines.

They cannot. The revolution has begun. There may or may not ever be a statue of the woman at Target as there is of the Minuteman in Massachusetts. She is no less significant. Another shot heard round the world has been fired.

(Editor’s note: It is unclear from the AFLDS video describing the aforementioned incident whether the Target employee had actually retained Mr. Rentz’ services. Target announced that it was dropping its mask requirement on 17 May, 2021, stating it was in response to recent CDC guidance: “Target says masks will no longer be required for customers and employees unless required by local laws, though they’ll still be ‘strongly recommended’ in stores for unvaccinated individuals.” )
