For this entry, I think it’s important to emphasize what’s happening to religious freedom in Canada. It’s not pretty. Government has even taken over a church in Alberta, locked its doors, fenced in the church building and taken over the property.
In this instance, a pastor in Calgary, Alberta, Canada shows how you repel police who come armed to your church.
In the title, I tried to parallel the famous quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his The Gulag Archipelago. The book is full of quotes that apply today in our rush toward full totalitarian rule, all accomplished by a so-called virus (one of billions on a healthy human) that we can’t even isolate.
In Canada, we have many examples of want-to-be tyrants. We can start with the prime minister Justin Trudeau. Take any of the provincial and territorial premiers. National and provincial Health Officers qualify. Even the police are potential tyrants. Politicians are drafting legislation to make opinions that oppose government ideology “domestic terrorists.” Here’s what happened to those innocents in Russia.
If we don’t take action, this will be the destiny of Canadians. Government and its agencies are already harassing and committing crimes against Christians, ignoring our Constitutional freedoms. Yes, under cover of darkness, police handing out $880 tickets for going to church!
But some Christians are taking action against tyranny. Take a look here. Let’s do it together.
I close with one final quote from the Gulag, in which we find the famous quote “We didn’t love freedom enough.”
“I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.”
Dr. Roger Hodkinson, MA, MB, FRCPC, FCAP, CEO and medical director of Western Medical Assessments, spoke at the Edmonton City Council Community and Public Services Committee meeting on Nov. 13 about the city’s move to extend its face-covering bylaw. He was listed as speaker number 95 on the meeting agenda.
Hodkinson was trained at Cambridge University in the UK. He is ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. He was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, Canada.
Here’s a recording of Hodkinson’s testimony:
Here’s the transcript of Hodkinson’s testimony:
This is Dr. Hodkinson, I just wanted to let you know I’m standing by.
OK, well we would love to hear from you, the floor is yours.
Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I’m going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don’t immediately think I’m a quack, I’m going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I’m coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.
I’m a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I’m the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, but more to the point I’m currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.
And [inaudible] you might say I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this: There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.
There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us.
Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.
Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.
And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you’re presenting to the hospital with some respiratory problem.
All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.
And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.
The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous! It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that.
Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.
Thank you very much.

2020 is a year of disguises. Some examples include computer models/modelers disguised as “science/scientists,” Tyrants/Dictators/Totalitarians disguised as “elected officials,” propaganda machines disguised as “news sources,” brainwashing disguised as “information,” censorship disguised as “public health safeguard,” panic and fear disguised as “social responsibility.”
Even the virus itself has been disguised by humans as an “apocalypse.” But, the last part is not the doing of the virus, but the doings of a select number of humans who are responsible for many of the other disguises as well. And if you look at the totality of events in 2020, it is clear that the average citizen has been treated generally less than human, certainly not as adults in any case.

Are handshakes oh so slightly unhygienic? Of course, they are. That is the point!
That is why a handshake is the greeting of equals. A sign not just of respect, but of a measure of trust, and a sign of equality that is the prerequisite to exploring mutual interest.
A handshake established the participants as equal, or as equal enough that they can engage in mutual enterprise, or conspiracy for that matter.
It is not despite its faint germ-sharing quality that a handshake rose to become *the* greeting of the modern world, but because of it.
Our ancestors understood at an innate level that someone who thinks himself too pure, or too contaminated to grasp your hand could not be trusted.
The willingness to engage in a little germ-sharing was precisely what was required to establish the other was neither too alien nor too warped to work with.
Even today something as insignificant as buying a car is inescapably sealed by — sharing a few germs.
A handshake establishes so much more than a mutual bow or the moronic “elbow bump” ever could, and is a much better bridge between people and the starting point of every conspiracy.
And that is why they want to take it away.
