Fellow Libertarians – If You Like RFK, Jr., You’ll Also Like Del Bigtree
On-line shoppers often receive product suggestions, telling them that, because they liked X, they may like Y. Below is a similar kind of suggestion.
If you’re one of those libertarians who recently discovered RFK, Jr. and you like him, you’ll probably also like Del Bigtree.
The libertarian world is slowly waking up to both the importance of vaccine freedom and the importance of RFK, Jr.’s work to that issue. Amen, and long overdue, on both counts! This author has been harping on the importance of vaccine freedom, and the significance of RFK, Jr’s work, for a long time. Such harping is contained in my May 16, 2020 article, “The COVID-19 War on Liberty Has Been Brewing for Years” and in other articles written before and after that date.
RFK Jr.’s new book, The Real Anthony Fauci, seems to be playing a big part in why he is finally receiving mass attention from libertarians.
I came to understand, long before COVID-19 arrived, and to a large extent through material put out by RFK, Jr.’s organization (Children’s Health Defense (CHD)) and Bigtree’s organizations (Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN)/ The HighWire (HW)), that society was headed toward a rights crushing crisis that would center on the issue of infectious disease and vaccines.
In the pre-COVID-19 era, when many libertarians were ignoring the issue of vaccine freedom, RFK, Jr. and Bigtree were busy: gathering evidence of corruption perpetrated by the state and its corporate cronies related to infectious diseases and vaccines; organizing opposition to that corruption; using the courts to oppose the corruption; and opposing legislation aimed at expanding vaccine mandates. Their pre-COVID-19 activity in these areas allowed them to hit the ground running when COVID-19 showed up and the government added a new infectious disease and a new vaccine to its shenanigans.
The already impressive efforts of RFK, Jr. and Bigtree to stop health-related tyranny can be supercharged by collaboration with the libertarian community and by adding expertise within libertarians’ bailiwick (on nullification, decentralization, private membership associations, mutual aid societies, private certification agencies to protect consumers, free market solutions for meeting health care needs, etc.). RFK, Jr. and Bigtree have identified and exposed the problem (state/government cronyism and corruption) and are fighting it, but collaboration with libertarians will help them to identify the best solutions to it (i.e., private health care and consumer protection solutions, not more government regulation and bureaucracy to “fix” the problem).
Libertarians now seem to widely recognize that the powers that be are perpetrating a rights-grabbing scam under the pretext of protecting us from COVID-19, and that collaboration with RFK, Jr. will assist us in defeating that scam. This is progress and it fulfills a couple of my hopes. However, I would like for two more of my hopes to be met: that libertarians will widely collaborate with Bigtree like they are now doing with RFK, Jr., and that libertarians will broaden their battle against COVID-19 vaccine mandates to include fighting the existing childhood vaccine mandates.
The libertarian world will benefit from collaborating with Del Bigtree.
1. Bigtree has a weekly internet show, the HighWire, which is solely donor funded, so it has no advertisers. Because it is not Big Pharma funded like most of the MSM, the Jaxen Report, the news portion of the show, provides the news of the week related to health and health-related tyranny, without Big Pharma’s spin. Bigtree interviews scientists, medical professionals, investigative journalists, freedom advocates and others with information critical for sorting out where the true weight of the scientific evidence lies with respect to infectious diseases and vaccines and for understanding the dystopian world we’re living in.
2. Bigtree is teamed up with an exceptional attorney, Aaron Siri, who has dug up a great deal of useful information. Those who saw the October 2021 debate between Scott Horton and Bill Kristol, and loved watching an arrogant insider elitist (Kristol) get taken down a peg by someone he underestimated, would also love watching recordings of Siri’s 2018 deposition of Stanley Plotkin. Plotkin is a beloved hero of the vaccine industry and clearly didn’t realize what he was walking into when he allowed himself to be deposed by Siri. Siri gathered much information damaging to the vaccine industry during that deposition. Additionally, Siri has been highly creative in his litigation strategy. He hasn’t let the vaccine manufacturers’ shield from lability stop him from bringing actions. He’s focused on bringing actions against agencies that “regulate” the vaccine industry, and those suits have also yielded lots of information damaging to the industry. Siri has a great Substack newsletter, Injecting Freedom.
3. Bigtree has shown a willingness to collaborate with libertarians and to promote our views. In 2019, he appeared at Anarchapulco and had a segment on his show about his appearance there. In 2021, he interviewed Ron Paul. He also recently interviewed G. Edward Griffin.
4. Bigtree has more than earned his libertarian stripes. Like RFK, Jr., he has been working his tail off since well before COVID-19 arose to protect Americans’ right to make their own vaccination decisions. He sounded the alarm bell early on that infectious disease would be the new pretext for controlling society and that vaccine mandates would expand from children to adults. Further, he put himself in the crosshairs of a powerful global cabal by doing so.
Libertarians should launch an offensive against the entire vaccine mandate scheme, as one shebang, attacking the childhood mandates already in effect while attacking COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
RFK, Jr.’s and Bigtree’s respective fights against COVID-19 vaccine mandates are part of a larger war they’ve been waging on vaccine mandates for years, which started with fighting childhood vaccine mandates. I respectfully suggest that libertarians who believe that vaccine tyranny began with COVID-19 have it all wrong.
First, the state’s act of mandating vaccines without proof of their necessity or safety is not a one-off that occurred in connection with COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines on the CDC’s childhood schedule are mandated upon schoolchildren. This occurs to varying degrees depending on the jurisdiction (state). The need for children to receive the CDC’s recommended vaccines has never been proven, and neither has the safety of those vaccines (received individually or cumulatively). More information about this is contained in my October 22, 2021 article, “Fauci Actually Got Something Right, But For the Wrong Reasons” and also on the CHD, ICAN and HW websites.
Additionally, the issue of COVID-19 vaccine mandates is inextricably intertwined with the issue of the already existing childhood vaccine mandates and the issues are most effectively addressed together, as one larger issue. When COVID-19 arrived on the scene, if there hadn’t already been childhood vaccine mandates in place throughout the U.S., and general acceptance of those mandates, the state wouldn’t stand a chance at universally mandating COVID-19 vaccines.
The plan for universally mandated COVID-19 vaccines, and a lifetime of other mandated vaccines, rests upon a foundation of psychological acceptance and societal norms laid down via childhood vaccine mandates. The idea that it is proper for government to make vaccination decisions for the public became widely accepted and normalized within the context of those mandates. Further, it should be noted that, although childhood vaccine mandates involve injections into children’s bodies, the decision-making rights they usurp belong to adults, the children’s parents.
By libertarians failing to fight the already existing childhood vaccine mandates as they fight COVID-19 vaccine mandates, they are acting inconsistently and taking a disjointed, fragmented approach.
Libertarians finally, collectively, going on the offensive and attacking the already existing childhood mandates when they attack COVID-19 vaccine mandates will cut the legs out from under the entire vaccine mandate beast. It will attack the psychological beliefs and societal norms feeding it. If libertarians do collectively go there, with minimal effort we can show that the childhood vaccine mandates should be squelched, like COVID-19 vaccine mandates, for nearly all of the same reasons that the latter should be squelched. And, we can use in support of our arguments evidence already gathered by RFK, Jr. and Bigtree—of decades’ worth of state and corporate fraud surrounding the childhood vaccine schedule.
This will slay the vaccine mandate beast in its entirety, not partially slay it, in a Whac-A-Mole fashion, by solely focusing on COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
