When is America’s Howard Beale moment?
By Madeline Crabb
August 5, 2021

What happens when individuals reach the point where it feels like we are powerless, or without recourse to change things? What happens if our government, the one designed to protect our constitutional rights and freedoms, has instead made us slaves? Is there a tipping point when the scales fall from our eyes, and we finally find the courage to say enough is enough? Perhaps it is time to echo the words of Howard Beale, from the movie Network, and scream from the rooftops, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

We are approaching the two-year mark of the supposed “discovery” of the novel coronavirus, aka the China Virus. Fear is being used by governments worldwide to institute heretofore unheard-of Draconian measures upon citizens. While this is expected from totalitarian/communist countries, in America, citizens are supposed to be in control. Government power comes from the “consent of the governed.”

Obviously, the Federal Government has been usurping its power for decades, but never in such magnitude as we are witnessing today. Merriam Webster defines usurp: to seize or exercise authority or possession wrongfully.

Presently, our pretend president and the new communist congress have been seizing power at warp speed. Most actions taken resulting from the China Virus have violated what we call the Supreme Law of the Land—our constitution, which says:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquiliy, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Ask yourself how perfect our union is in this volatile time? Yes, we may be in better condition than countries under totalitarian dictatorships, but we barely resemble a government of, by, and for the people. What about the establishment of Justice? It is my contention there is no true justice in the land. The courts and justice system are corrupt, dishonest scales are being used, and Lady Justice is not blind. How about domestic Tranquility? Are we citizens able to simply live our lives, do our jobs, and raise our children without government micromanaging our every move? Is government promoting our general welfare? And please understand that “welfare” is not about providing a living for citizens, but about creating an environment where we can all work towards “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” as stated in the Declaration of Independence.

How do open borders that allow hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to not only enter our country, but to be bussed/flown all over the country, promote our General Welfare? The Center for Immigration Studies states that by September, the 2021 total will reach 1.3 million, the highest number of detected illegal border crossings in 21 years! And they are all coming to live in a city or town near us.

Lastly, how exactly are the Blessings of Liberty being secured for ourselves and our Posterity? We have been systematically stripped of our constitutional rights, the latest being the denied protections under the Fourth Amendment, “the rights of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against searches and seizures.” Just in the current manufactured crisis of the China Virus, citizens are being forced to wear face diapers that inhibit the ability to breathe freely, which leads to other health and psychological problems. Worse, pre-puberty children, whose brains are still growing, are being forced to wear face diapers that can stunt their development. There is also psychological damage being done to children. The inability of adults to communicate through facial expressions is bad enough, but what about kids who are developing social communication skills that cannot be fully learned because of masks?

The following was reported by Dr. Joseph Mercola and included in a report at LifeSiteNews: “A new study shows children have experienced great psychological, behavioral, and physical harm from the mandates and lockdowns handed down during the COVID-19 pandemic. This harm affects the next generation of leaders.”

Abortion advocates use the mantra “My body, my choice,” and then tell everyone who disagrees with them to “get out of my uterus.” How about those of us desiring to freely breathe fresh air adopting the “free choice” mantra, and telling government to “stay out of our respiratory system?”

Or, regarding the so-called vaccines, how about us having the right to tell government to shove its needles until we see substantial, quantified evidence that the experimental, non-FDA approved, gene therapy treatments, and in some cases, DNA-modifying poisons, will not cause us harm or death? There are tons of facts to the contrary.

Concerning the proposed “vaccines,” understand the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for Allergic and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cannot be trusted. The first two are funded by people like Bill Gates, the king of vaccines who also wants to cull the world’s population. His activities have included the sterilization of people in some African countries. He brags about these things. Why would we want him involved with any of our health concerns?

Further, the CDC receives funding from all pharmaceutical companies—Big Pharma – as do the media companies, which is why we will never hear truth about any of their products. Also, remember Big Pharma is not responsible for any harm from their so-called medicines. (Thanks to our corrupt government.) Oh, did I mention that Big Pharma is one of the largest contributors to national politics? In the 2020 election year, Big Pharma donated almost $50 million to both sides, favoring the new communists/democrats.

Over the past 20 years, Big Pharma has spent over $6 billion lobbying our congress. Who makes the laws governing us? Congress. Who decides what medicines and so-called vaccines will be unleashed upon us? The CDC, NIAID, and FDA. Who controls the information we are allowed to see regarding all of this? The bought and paid for, non-elected officials at these agencies, and MSM that reports to the White House. Among the “bought and paid for” officials are folks like Dr. Anthony Fauci who has a serious conflict of interest. Big surprise, right?

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. says that Fauci owns several vaccine patents, including one being trialed to fight coronavirus by some of America's biggest vaccine manufacturers. Also, the NIAID will collect 50% of all royalties from a potential coronavirus vaccine.

About CDC conflict, Kennedy states, “The CDC is a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry. The agency owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually. Former Congressman Dave Weldon has pointed out that the primary metric for success across the CDC is how many vaccines the agency sells and how successfully the agency expands its vaccine program—regardless of any negative effects on human health.”

So now, why should we not sound like the fictional character Howard Beale? Because our Federal Government has overstepped its constitutional boundaries in almost every area imaginable. Consider the two constitutional amendments specifically addressing parameters of government’s authority—numbers nine and ten.

The Ninth Amendment states: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The Tenth Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The power belongs to citizens.

This current national government, which I consider to be illegitimate, has become totalitarian. It is time to stand up and shout that we are “mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore.” Then, in civil disobedience, burn all the face diapers. Thinking masks can stop a virus is like erecting a chain link fence to stop mosquitos. Fact! Then, refuse to take any jab without total voluntary consent, as detailed in the Nuremberg Code. Coercion means our actions are involuntary.

These forced jabs are not the biblical Mark of the Beast but are precursors to the “system” that will be used in the future to control everyone. Scripture says, “Also he compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead [signifying allegiance to the beast], and that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark...” (Rev. 13: 16-18 AMP)

No, the jabs are being given in the arm, and we are not having to signify allegiance to the beast. For now, we must signify allegiance to a tyrannical government through our compliance. This is already costing people their health, and in some cases, their lives. To understand where totalitarianism leads, look at Red China and North Korea. Or, read George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, where he suggests, “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

It may seem as if we have no recourse. Fascists, comprised of a government/corporate partnership, are busily working to bring about the New World Order where people must submit to government. Some government officials know they do not have constitutional authority to demand vaccinations, so they are working through corporations to achieve their goals. And where do most political campaign funds come from? Corporations, including Big Pharma. Folks, this is simply about money and control.

I suggest we stop doing business with every company demanding masks or proof of the China Virus jab to do business with them. Stop it! Write, call, picket, whatever seems right to you as an individual. They are inhibiting your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so inhibit their profits by refusing to assist in their assaults upon our freedoms. If we continue to support them, the assaults will never stop, and we are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Since our federal government is hopelessly corrupt, we must work at the local/state levels to secure any remaining freedoms. Get acquainted with these people—they will be more responsive to our needs because they live in our communities.

Additionally, we need to become better informed, and then help others understand the stakes. Remember Orwell’s boot?

But most importantly, we must repent, fully turn away from our sins, and humbly ask God to forgive and have mercy upon us. Our future depends on these actions. To anyone willing to hear….
