Dr. Ron Paul – the former U.S. presidential candidate and 22-year congressional veteran – recently released an urgent coronavirus message that runs counter to practically everything you’ll hear in the media.
Every American – especially those who are retired or nearing retirement – needs to hear this message.
Few people in the nation today have Dr. Paul’s knowledge of the inner workings of the government…
He spent more than two decades in Congress. He served on the House Banking Committee and the Committee on Foreign Affairs. He sponsored more than 600 legislative bills. He met with every president of the past 40 years and every Fed Chairman… and spent many hours in top-secret, closed-door meetings.
Which is why his latest prediction is so alarming…
Today, politicians are positioning themselves to profit from the panic in any way they can. Constitutional freedoms have been trampled… And many in Washington, D.C. are using the situation to set America on a path that will only lead to disaster.
But the good news is that Dr. Paul recently announced that he’s found the No. 1 way for American citizens – no matter your political party – to prepare for what’s coming next.
And then read on for Dr. Paul’s latest take on the coronavirus…
Listening to the Coronavirus ‘Experts’ Has Led to Death and Despair
By Dr. Ron Paul
On April 21, the Washington Post savaged Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s decision to begin opening his state after locking down for weeks. “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination,” sneered the headline.
The author, liberal pundit Dana Milbank, actually found the possibility of Georgians dying to be hilarious, suggesting that, “as a promotion, Georgia could offer ventilators to the first 100 hotel guests to register.”
Milbank, who is obviously still getting paid while millions are out of work, sees his job as pushing the mainstream narrative that we must remain in fear and never question what “experts” like Dr. Fauci tell us.
Well it’s been three weeks since Milbank’s attack on Georgia and its governor, predicting widespread death which he found humorous. His predictions are about as worthless as his character. Not only has Georgia not seen “coronavirus… burn through Georgia like nothing has since William Tecumseh Sherman,” as Milbank laughed, but COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have seen a steep decline since the governor began opening the state.
Maybe getting out in the fresh air and sunshine should not have been prohibited in the first place!
In fact, as we now have much more data, it is becoming increasingly clear that the U.S. states and the countries that locked down the tightest also suffered the highest death rates. Ultra-locked-down Italy suffered 495 COVID-19 deaths per million while relatively non-locked-down South Korea suffered only five deaths per million. The same is true in the U.S., where non-lockdown states like South Dakota were relatively untouched by the virus while authoritarian-led Michigan, New York, and California have been the hardest hit.
In those hardest-hit states, we are now seeing that most of the deaths occurred in senior-care facilities – after the governors ordered patients sick with COVID-19 to leave the hospitals and return to their facilities. There, they infected their fellow residents who were most likely to have the multiple co-morbidities and advanced age that turned the virus into a death sentence. Will these governors be made to answer for this callous disregard for life?
Yesterday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar admitted the obvious: “We are seeing that in places that are opening, we’re not seeing this spike in cases.” So why not open everything? Because these petty tyrants cannot stand the idea of losing the ability to push people around.
Shutting down the entire United States over a virus that looks to be less deadly than an average flu virus – particularly among those under 80 who are not already sick – has resulted in mass unemployment and economic destruction. More Americans may die from the wrong-headed efforts to fight the virus than from the virus itself.
Americans should pause and reflect on the lies they are being sold. Masks are just a form of psychological manipulation. Many reputable physicians and scientists have said they are worthless and potentially harmful. Lockdowns are meant to condition people to obey without question. A nation of people who just do what they are told by the “experts” without question is a nation ripe for a descent into total tyranny. This is no empty warning – it’s backed up by history. Time to stand up to all the petty tyrants from our hometowns to Washington, D.C. It is time to reclaim our freedom.

America’s response to the coronavirus is the most American thing ever
