October 24, 2020, Robert F. Kennedy, founder of Children’s Health Defense, gave this online “International Message of Hope for Humanity” speech.1
The speech was a kickoff of sorts to an international day of protest against the coup d’état by big tech, big oil and chemical companies, and “the global public health cartel” led by Bill Gates and the World Health Organization that seeks to magnify its wealth and power over our lives, remove our liberties, subvert democracy and “destroy our sovereignty and our control over our lives and our children’s health.”
Fear Is the Tool of Tyrants
Kennedy reminds us of Franklin Roosevelt’s famous quote: “The only thing that we have to fear is fear itself,” as it speaks directly to the fact that the only way this global takeover can occur is if we remain in fear. As noted by Kennedy:
“We grow up hearing that but people don’t really understand what it means. It was a very, very profound warning by Roosevelt, because he saw what the Great Depression was doing in eastern Europe, Italy, Germany and Spain. That crisis was turning people towards fascism in the eastern countries.
The same crisis was turning citizens and governments towards communism and also causing the collapse of governments all over the world. In the United States … almost a third of the people were completely disillusioned with capitalism and wanted to turn to communism. Another third wanted to turn to fascism.
Franklin Roosevelt wanted to preserve our country for democracy, for free market capitalism, for civil rights and to preserve our constitution. He recognized that the weapon of authoritarian control was going to be fear.”
Fearmongering and false propaganda about the risks posed by COVID-19 has led many to unquestioningly abdicate their civil liberties over the past eight months. Yet, when you look at the facts, there’s really no reason to live in fear, and even less reason to give up our rights and liberties to protect us from the relatively minor risks that do exist.
“When I spoke a few weeks ago in Berlin, I reminded the people of Germany of a famous story that happened during the Nuremberg trials after World War II when Hitler’s closest Lieutenant, the head of the Luftwaffe, Hermann Goering, was asked by one of the prosecutors:
‘How did you get the German people, the most educated people in the world, some of the most tolerant people in the world — the Weimar republic was one of the strongest democracies in the world — how did you take these people who were so well educated, so awakened and so tolerant, and turn them into obedient slaves who committed some of the worst atrocities in human history?’
Goering said, ‘Oh, that’s a simple thing … and it works not just in a fascist government but it works in a democracy, in a monarchy, in a communist government, in any government … The job of the government is to put the people in fear, and if you can keep them in fear, you can get them to do anything that you want them to do. They will turn into sheep.’”
The Shock Doctrine
Kennedy recommends reading Naomi Klein’s book, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism,” which provides a chronology of instances in American and global history when authoritarian elements exerted and augmented their control by capitalizing on disaster.
A handful of examples include the Great Depression, the 1973 financial collapse in Chile, the World Trade Center bombing, the 2008 financial collapse and 9/11. These crises allowed large corporations and wealthy oligarchs to transfer wealth upward, obliterating the middle-class in the process, and implement more totalitarian controls of the population. The exact same thing is happening now, and it’s clear for anyone willing to look at the facts.
“Of course, it’s an obvious thing that people who are used to voting for their governments are not going to vote for policies that make rich people richer, that give corporations even more power over their lives, that reduce democracy and reduce civil rights.
In order to transform the government so that it will reward the rich with even more wealth, the people who want to do that, in the large corporations … have to get rid of civil rights. And the first civil right they begin with is freedom of speech,” Kennedy says.
Censorship Erodes and Eliminates All Human Rights
The reason why totalitarian takeovers always begin with the censorship of speech is because all other rights depend on the ability to express your views and concerns freely. That’s why freedom of speech is the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Remove the First Amendment, and all the others are automatically nullified.
For example, without free speech, you cannot exercise your freedom of assembly. Indeed, today, people are being arrested for being in groups larger than six, or 10, or whatever arbitrary number has been dictated by the local or state leadership to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
And without freedom of assembly, your freedom of religion goes down the tubes. As noted by Kennedy, all human rights can be and are subverted once you impose censorship. Censorship is also anathema to democracy.
“If a government can hide what it’s doing, it can get away with anything it wants. If a corporation can lie to you and conceal information, if there’s no transparency, you do not have a democracy,” Kennedy warns.
Indeed, democracy requires freedom of speech. How can you have a democratic society if only one side of any argument is allowed to be heard? The media and online censorship we’re now seeing is really an unprecedented attack by nonelected corporate leaders on democracy around the world.
“The coup d’état that we are all fighting today is a coup d’état that starts with a conspiracy between the government agencies and the big technology companies, the Silicon Valley billionaires.
People like Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, the people who run Google, Facebook and Pinterest and all of these other Silicon Valley corporations are now in this conspiracy to make sure that we cannot talk about our grievances,” Kennedy says. “We cannot say bad things about pharmaceutical products, we cannot question government policies that make no sense to us.”
Essential Questions That Must Be Answered
He points out there are important questions that must be asked and answered. Among them, what is the origin of SARS-CoV-2? Why do we still not have an answer to this question?
“We need to know that. This is the worst calamity in history and nobody seems curious about where this actually comes from? We know it didn’t come from a bat in the wet market in Wuhan. That story was a fable that has no basis in fact.
We have Nobel laureates, we have large institutions, investigative agencies and prosecutorial agencies saying ‘We think it came from the Wuhan lab and we think it may have come from studies that were funded by Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci’ …
Why, instead of sending their police to suppress dissent, are they not sending the police to question people who may know the answer to that question?” Kennedy says.
Another question that demands an answer is, why are face masks being mandated if there is no science to show that they reduce infection rates? As noted by Kennedy:
“I’m very willing to accept it if the masks work … But the studies I’ve seen indicate that they do not work against viral transmission, for the most part. There are some that say they may work under limited circumstances. What I don’t want to be told is: ‘They work, you’re going to wear them and you better not ask questions about it.’
Most Americans, and most of the people on this planet, want leadership. We don’t want bullying. And we know the difference between bullying and leadership. We want to know the truth about hydroxychloroquine. We want to know, why are we spending $18 billion on vaccines and only $1.4 billion on therapeutic drugs? What is the sense of that?
There are many, many other questions that we, in a democracy, have a right to have answered without being called conspiracy theorists. Without being vilified as being ‘inconsiderate’ or being ‘bad citizens.’”
How to Win This Battle
We’re fighting a technocratic machine that has enormous resources, including the surveillance technology to shut down a vast majority of dissenters. So, how can we possibly win? The answer, Kennedy says, is through the democratic process.
“The only way we can win it is with democracy,” he says. “We need to fight to get our democracy back, to reclaim our democracy from these villains who are stealing it from us. You notice the people who are getting richest from this quarantine are the same people who are censoring criticism of the quarantine.
Who is becoming the richest? Jeffrey Bezos; $83 billion he’s made. He owns Amazon and he is censoring books that criticize the quarantine. Zuckerberg, who owns Facebook, who’s made tens of billions of dollars by this quarantine, he is censoring information that is critical of the quarantine.
He censors my Instagram. He censors my Facebook. My Twitter page is also censored. And all of these people are the people who are making billions of dollars on the quarantine. And what I want to know is a simple question: Is the quarantine actually effective?”
There have been many pandemics in the past. In 1968 and 1969, the Hong Kong flu pandemic2 killed 100,000 people in the United States, which is equivalent to 200,000 people today when you adjust for population growth — about the same number allegedly killed by COVID-19.
There were no lockdowns or mask mandates back then. On the contrary, people attended Woodstock and the Democratic Convention in Chicago in large numbers. We also sent the first manned mission to the moon.
Keeping a Sane Perspective
Kennedy also reminds us to maintain perspective on the pandemic by remembering there are many other infectious diseases that claim far more lives than COVID-19, yet do not disrupt normal life at all, and never have.
“We have 1.6 million people die every year from tuberculosis,” he says. “We’re not wearing masks. We’re not on lockdown. What’s the difference between tuberculosis and coronavirus?
Tuberculosis has a vaccine and the vaccine costs about $3. That’s why we’re not on lockdown. Because nobody is making $39 a vaccine or $300 a vaccine, the way Moderna and AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson are making from this catastrophe. That is the only reason that I can think of. I’m happy if somebody tells me there’s another reason. But let’s hear it. Don’t just shut me up. Don’t just tell me that I can’t debate.”
United We Win, Divided We Lose
Kennedy also stresses another crucial point, namely the need to stick together. We must put aside our quibbles over nonessential things like race, religion and political affiliations, and focus on the real enemy.
“We need to come out on the street and we need to stick together,” Kennedy says. “What the Big Tech villains and scoundrels — Mark Zuckerberg, Jeffrey Bezos, Bill Gates and Tony Fauci — want us to do is fight with each other.
They want Blacks fighting against whites. They want republicans fighting against democrats. They want everybody polarized. They want everybody fragmented because they know that if we all get together, we’re going to start asking questions and those are questions they can’t answer.
‘Why are you getting rich and why are we all getting poor?’ ‘Why are we not wearing masks for tuberculosis but we are for the coronavirus?’ ‘Where did it all come from?’ All of those questions we deserve an answer to, and we’re not getting answers.
We need to stick together. If you’re a republican or democrat, stop talking about that. Stop identifying yourself.
The enemy is Big Tech, Big Data, Big Oil, Big Pharma, the medical cartel, the government totalitarian elements that are trying to oppress us, that are trying to rob us of our liberties, of our democracy, of our freedom of thought, of our freedom of expression, of our freedom of assembly and all of the freedoms that give dignity to humanity.”
Stay Informed and Join the Fight
Lastly, we need to get educated and stay informed. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to start seeing the big plan. Look at the facts, and look where that takes us. I’ve written several in-depth articles about the technocratic agenda, surveillance capitalism and the global takeover, also advertised as the Great Reset. If you missed them, set aside some time to go through it all.
In his speech, Kennedy also announced the launch of a new online daily journal — The Defender — by the Children’s Health Defense.
“We are going to weaponize information for you,” he says. “We’re going to tell you what the newest science is. We’re going to take all the information that is censored everywhere else and we’re going to reprint it in our publication, and you can get that every day.
So, if you see something that is censored, we want to hear about it. We are going to be the enemies of censorship. We are going to be the refuge. And we’re going to allow debate. We’re going to encourage people to be non-partisan, but we’re going to allow people to have different opinions than us.
We are not scared of debate the way pharmaceutical companies, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeffrey Bezos and Tony Fauci are terrified of debate.
We welcome debate … and I want to see your science. I want the public to hear us talking about it, debating about it, because the free-flow of information, the cauldron of debate, is the only thing that allows governments to develop rational policies in which self-governance will actually work and triumph.
You are on the front lines of the most important battle in history — the battle to save democracy, freedom, human liberty and human dignity from this totalitarian cartel that is trying to rob us, simultaneously, in every nation in the world, of the rights that every human being is born with.
So, thank you for your courage, thank you for your commitment, and thank you for your brotherhood. And I pledge to you: I will go down dying with my boots on, fighting side-by-side with all of you to make sure that we return these rights and preserve them for our children.”
