ICYMI: If you refuse coronavirus vaccine plans in Spain, you’ll be targeted and put on a government list
By Dennis Prager - 05. January 2021
As my listeners and readers can hopefully attest, I have been on a lifelong quest to understand human nature and human behavior. I am sad to report that I have learned more in the last few years, particularly in 2020, than in any equivalent period of time.
One of the biggest revelations concerns a question that has always plagued me: How does one explain the "good German," the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime? The same question could be asked about the average Frenchman during the Vichy era, the average Russian under Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Leonid Brezhnev and their successors, and the millions of others who did nothing to help their fellow citizens under oppressive dictatorships.
These past few years have taught me not to so quickly judge the quiet German, Russian, etc. Of course, I still judge Germans who helped the Nazis and Germans who in any way hurt Jews. But the Germans who did nothing? Not so fast.
What has changed my thinking has been watching what is happening in America (and Canada and Australia and elsewhere, for that matter).
The ease with which tens of millions of Americans have accepted irrational, unconstitutional and unprecedented police state-type restrictions on their freedoms, including even the freedom to make a living, has been, to understate the case, sobering.
The same holds true for the acceptance by most Americans of the rampant censorship on Twitter and all other major social media platforms. Even physicians and other scientists are deprived of freedom of speech if, for example, they offer scientific support for hydroxychloroquine along with zinc to treat COVID-19 in the early stages. Board-certified physician Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who has saved hundreds of COVID-19 patients from suffering and/or death, has been banned from Twitter for publicizing his lifesaving hydroxychloroquine and zinc protocol.
Half of America, the non-left half, is afraid to speak their minds at virtually every university, movie studio and large corporation -- indeed, at virtually every place of work. Professors who say anything that offends the left fear being ostracized if they have tenure and being fired if they do not. People are socially ostracized, publicly shamed and/or fired for differing with Black Lives Matter, as America-hating and white-hating a group as has ever existed. And few Americans speak up. On the contrary, when BLM protestors demand that diners outside of restaurants raise their fists to show their support of BLM, nearly every diner does.
So, then, who are we to condemn the average German who faced the Gestapo if he didn't salute Hitler or the average Russian who faced the NKVD (the secret police and intelligence agency that preceded the KGB) if he didn't demonstrate sufficient enthusiasm for Stalin? Americans face the left's cancel culture, but not left-wing secret police or reeducation camps. (At least not yet -- I have little doubt the left would send outspoken conservatives to reeducation camps if they could.)
I have come to understand the average German living under Nazism and the average Russian living under communism for another reason: the power of the media to brainwash.
As a student of totalitarianism since my graduate studies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University's School of International Affairs (as it was then known), I have always believed that only in a dictatorship could a society be brainwashed. I was wrong. I now understand that mass brainwashing can take place in a nominally free society. The incessant left-wing drumbeat of The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and almost every other major newspaper, plus The Atlantic, The New Yorker, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, all of Hollywood and almost every school from kindergarten through graduate school, has brainwashed at least half of America every bit as effectively as the German, Soviet and Chinese communist press did (and in the latter case, still does). That thousands of schools will teach the lie that is the New York Times' "1619 Project" is one of countless examples.
Prior to the lockdowns, I flew almost every week of the year, so I was approached by people who recognized me on a regular basis. Increasingly, I noticed that people would look around to see if anyone was within earshot and then tell me in almost a whisper: "I support Trump" or, "I'm a conservative." The last time people looked around and whispered things to me was when I used to visit the Soviet Union.
In Quebec this past weekend, as one can see on a viral video, a family was fined and members arrested because six -- yes, six -- people gathered to celebrate the new year. A neighbor snitched on them, and the celebrants were duly arrested. The Quebec government lauded the snitches and asked for more public "collaboration."
Snitches are likewise lauded and encouraged in some Democrat-run states and cities in America (Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in March: "Snitches get rewards") and by left-wing governments in Australia. Plenty of Americans, Canadians and Australians are only too happy to snitch on people who refuse to lock down their lives.
All this is taking place without concentration camps, without a Gestapo, without a KGB and without Maoist reeducation camps.
That's why I no longer judge the average German as easily as I used to.
Apathy in the face of tyranny turns out not to be a German or Russian characteristic.
I just never thought it could happen in America.

Here it comes: If you want to board a plane or travel internationally, you re going to have to have a COVID “vaccine passport”
By JD Heyes - 08. January 2020
If you re still on the fence about whether governments and big corporations are conspiring to exert maximum control over anyone who isn t a member of the political and business elite using the COVID-19 pandemic as justification, this should convince you that they are.
We re being led to believe that in order to make the world safe from a virus that is going to fade over time like the other viruses that came before it (SARS, MERS, swine flu, etc.), we are going to have to accept some new normals, and that will include being forced to take, and then prove you ve taken, a COVID-19 vaccine.
And of the new normal things we re going to be forced to accept is something called a COVID passport or immunity passport.
In short, you won t be able to do much of anything get on a plane, go to a movie, attend a concert, or get into many buildings (including government facilities) unless you show your vaccine passport. And naturally, to get a passport you re going to have to get a vaccine.
Already, big government advocates are talking about ways to adopt these passports. And already, big corporations especially airlines are implementing rules requiring them, beginning with Singapore Airlines.
A press release from the company states:
Singapore Airlines (SIA) has started trials on a new digital health verification process, which will be the first in the world to be based on the International Air Transport Association s (IATA) Travel Pass framework. This will offer customers the ability to securely store and present information related to Covid-19 tests, as well as their vaccination status in the future.
This service will initially be offered from 23 December to customers travelling [sic] on flights operated by Singapore Airlines from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. If successful, this could be extended to other cities in the SIA route network.
Covid-19 tests and vaccinations will be an integral part of air travel for the foreseeable future, said JoAnn Tan, acting senior vice president of marketing and planning for the airline.
We are offering a digital solution that allows the easy and secure verification of this information, and supports the industry s safe and calibrated recovery from this pandemic, she added. Using IATA s robust Travel Pass framework would also provide our customers and governments with the assurance that they need about the security and authenticity of the test and vaccination information.
Partnering with Singapore Airlines for the world s first deployment of the Timatic Covid-19 module of the IATA Travel Pass is a big step forward, added Nick Careen, a senior VP with the IATA.
Together we will demonstrate that people can return to travel with confidence that they are meeting all government Covid-19 entry requirements. We already have plans to add additional features in the New Year. This will help ensure that SIA s customers will be among the first to benefit as governments re-open their borders with testing or vaccination requirements. And the experience gained through collaboration helps prepare for the eventual global deployment of the IATA Travel Pass, he continued.
Got that? You, the passenger/consumer aren t being asked what you think about the implementation of this massive travel restriction, you re being told to either accept it or don t travel. (Related: Heathrow Airport in London testing covid-19 passport technology that will force air travelers to submit to vaccines.)
And while there may be huge constitutional issues in the United States with the imposition of mandated requirements to travel, there are no such protections in other countries so they are free to do as they please.
Speaking of the U.S., so-called vaccine passports are already being pushed domestically as well.
An op-ed by Aaron Schwid, director of public health law at Vital Strategies, and Dr. Tom Frieden, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under President Obama and president and chief executive of Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies, published by the Washington Post last week lays it all out.

If you refuse coronavirus vaccine plans in Spain, you’ll be targeted and put on a government list
By Lance D Johnson - 04. January 2020
In Spain, government officials already have plans to target people who do not submit to coronavirus vaccines. Health Minister Salvador Illa warned that anyone who refuses the shots will be put on a government registry list. He said the list will be shared with all “European partners” as governments around the world strategize ways to take away individual rights and coerce people to take the shots. Mr. Illa assured the public their “data would be protected” as the list is shared across the European Union. This meaningless assurance is a slap in the face to the people who are being targeted by the government in the first place.
Governments begin threatening people who refuse vaccines by putting their name on a hit-list
The threat of being put on a government hit list is a form of social ostracizing that illegally and unethically coerces people to submit to pharmaceutical and government decrees. The method uses psychological fear tactics and peer pressure to force obedience and coerce people to give up their right to body autonomy, informed consent and medical privacy. Targeting people for not vaccinating is now accepted as normal behavior across the European Union. This unethical human rights abuse is a form of terrorism and violates the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics.
This list could ultimately be used to withhold health care from people who do not vaccinate — a common threat that is often used online. The list could be used in discriminatory ways to withhold treatments from people who are viewed as “threats to public health.” The people on the list could be subjected to other unnecessary medical requirements and be forcibly detained and isolated, without due process of law. The list could also be used to deny the targeted people any help, public housing, food or other safety net programs. People on the list could be denied stimulus checks and tax breaks, as they are forced to pay fines for living healthy and normal, unvaccinated lives.
Drunk with power, many governments around the world now believe they own the bodies of every single person, plunging the world into a dark age of vaccine slavery. Governments and corporations are plotting ways to roll out “vaccine passports” that give people artificial permission to return to work, enter stadiums, board flights, attend concerts, etc. These vaccine passports would segregate anyone who doesn’t comply with the new vaccine world order. Canada is exploring a tracking and surveillance system just like this, and major airlines have already introduced their coercive vaccine passport plans.
As individual conscience is trampled and medical rights destroyed, governments and corporations would technically own all human beings, enslaving them to a society where all humans must submit to endless pharmaceutical decrees in order to associate with one another, congregate, buy and sell.
The U.S. must lead the world and respect individual rights
In just two weeks, Operation Warp Speed distributed approximately 11.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccines to hospitals across the US. Even though the distribution was a historic feat, only 2 million people took the first dose. It appears that over 80 percent of the experimental doses are being rejected, ultimately stalling the government’s plan to distribute 20 million doses by year’s end. State governments are making the inoculations available in stages, targeting select groups of people instead of treating everyone as an individual. Most states have pushed health care workers and nursing home residents to take the shots first, but many people who were lumped into these groups do not want to be treated as if they are an experimental animal, lumped into a herd, anticipating inoculation.
Of those convinced to get the vaccines, thousands have experienced health problems that disrupt their normal way of life. In many cases, these health effects have led to hospitalization and the need for further medical intervention. The FDA is monitoring the situation and the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System is gathering preliminary data on these vaccine-induced health emergencies.
As the evidence of harm surmounts, the US must reject the one-size-fits-all vaccine mandates. US leaders should begin to respect individual rights again. As a so-called “free country,” the US must practice what it stands for and promote health freedom to every corner of the world. If the US does not lead, the world may soon plunge into a dark era of vaccine slavery and wide-scale segregation of the unvaccinated.
