Additional Bio:


Naomi Wolf, a former consultant to President Clinton, has written about what, without a doubt, is the gold standard work on Covid and the forced experimental vaccination push by the fed gov along with its naïve but willing collaborators from the private sector. The book is titled “The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and The War Against the Human.” The book is endorsed by Tucker Carlson, Dr. Paul Alexander, Steve Bannon, and Eric Metaxas.




   “This book is about how we came to this harrowing civilizational crossroads — engaged in a war against vast impersonal forces with limitless power over our lives for the freedoms we have taken for granted; how those forces seized upon two years of COVID-19 panic in sinister new ways; and how, yet, against overwhelming odds, we still might win.” (p. 2)


   “Others have looked at this war from a biomedical perspective, or from a strictly political one. My focus is on how this ongoing war against us is far more basic, aimed at nothing less than dissolving the meaning of humanity itself and undoing of the rich cultural legacy we in the West have long treasured and passed on to succeeding generations.

   In those two years, the COVID-19 pandemic, which began unfolding with the unprecedented global “lockdown” in March 2020, has fundamentally remade human relations, capitalism, and culture in the West. No matter that in the past we had lived through far graver medical crises without even passing thought to stopping all congregation, suspending the production of all culture, or compelling all healthy people to cover their faces and close their businesses and keep apart — this time, our elites used the “crisis” to shut down Western norms of liberty, the human-centered world, and civilization itself.

   But what is our culture, which we once thought durable, to be replaced by? A world managed by machines and mediated via digital interfaces; a world predicated on cruelty, without human empathy as an organizing principle; a world in which national boundaries, cultures, and languages are drained of meaning, in which institutions embody only the goals of distant meta-national oligarchs, a world organized for the benefit of massive pharmaceutical companies, a few global tech giants and technocrats, and a tyrannical superpower that is our deadly adversary. In short: a world redesigned to ensure the dominance forever of these distant elites, both geopolitically and via market share.

   In 2020–22, we entered a time in which the post–World War II organizing principle of human affairs, the democratic nation-state, was being intentionally diluted in power and undermined in the interest of constructing a replacement meta-structure of unaccountable loosely aligned global nonprofits, Big Tech corporations, the WEF, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).”  (p. 2-3).


A review:


Dr. Wolf shows how fragile Western liberty institutions are, and it is frightening. Without barely a peep, the nations of the Western world surrendered long fought for constitution freedom to un-elected bureaucrats who jumped into action, implanting virtually straight out of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) playbook a strategy to lock down society, literally putting out of business hundreds of thousands of businesses and ruining countless lives. It should be duly noted that Communism is anti-Christ.  Karl Marx wanted to dethrone God, and an influential disciple of Marx's, Saul Alinsky, dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer!


In addition, Dr. Wolf documents how the forced experimental so-called vaccines are causing the deaths and injuries of millions around the world. The dam of censorship is starting to break in, which will be seen that the covid vaccines are bio-weapons designed to cause the collapse and depopulation of whole societies. In the future, it will be reported that this is one of the worst crimes against humanity ever recorded. Even now, the battle cry is sounding for the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity, “there will be no amnesty.”


Dr. Wolf explains it this way:


   “It is no exaggeration to say that these coordinated offenses, orchestrated by government in lockstep alliance with tech and pharmaceutical companies and the dominant media, represent an evil we had never seen before in human history.” (p. 13)


Dr. Wolf goes on:


   “The real goal had nothing to do with public health. The real goal is to dissolve and destroy Western and human culture, and to replace it with a techno-fascistic culture — a culture in which we have forgotten what free human beings can do. The crime that was perpetrated during the pandemic years of 2020–22 was perhaps the greatest ever committed against humanity. And it is being perpetrated still.” (p. 14-15)


Thus far, this review has only touched on the introduction. The scope of this work is incredible. Dr. Wolf thoroughly documents her assertions. Dr. Wolf’s book values the dignity of humanity and the best elements of culture. In addition, Dr. Wolf describes with extraordinary empathy the terrible toll of death and destruction of millions of lives and livelihoods the pandemic lockdowns destroyed.    


How could Western societies that had developed such strong democratic cultural norms with real freedom let it be taken and replaced with the practices and dictates taken almost verbatim out of the Chinese Communist Party playbook?


Everything in Western cultural tradition was being thrown out for impersonal degrading practices. When the practices were questioned by asking:




Always the same answer. ‘Because of COVID’” (p. 248)   


Dr. Wolf’s book is sobering and frightening when considering how many of our countrymen blindly submitted. Alternatively, and even more alarming, it gave rise to the totalitarians among us. Unelected It is hard to fathom the amount of damage that was done. A whole generation of children has been impacted negatively in education and social development.


Doctors, one with over 600 peer-reviewed articles published, was stripped of his medical license credentials for daring to question the vaccine narrative and the dangers of the vaccines. *


Unelected bureaucrats suddenly became tyrannical and seemingly relished their new power of having the ability to destroy people’s businesses. Domestic and foreign enemies even used and used the pandemic lockdowns to implement a coup against a sitting American president’s reelection campaign. In opposition to most state constitutions, mail-in ballots by the millions without the proper chain of custody controls and signature verifications were injected into the system. “Why? ‘Because of COVID.’”    


For the naysayers, one of the book’s endorsers writes:


   “Naomi Wolf’s courage is a gift to us all. Her work in this brilliant book is groundbreaking and inescapably important for anyone who cares about freedom and human dignity.” – Eric Metaxas, #1 New York Times bestselling author and the host of the nationally syndicated Eric Metaxas radio show, and is the author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, Is Atheism Dead, Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce, Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World, and many other titles


Another endorser writes:


   “Naomi Wolf is one of the bravest, clearest-thinking people I know. The reason you hear the forces of repression so desperately trying to dismiss her is because she is right.” – Tucker Carlson.               


In conclusion:


Dr. Naomi Wolf is truly an extraordinary humanitarian. If modern democratic societies are to survive, Dr. Wolf’s book will surely have played a part in waking people up to the dangers exhibited by the enemies of freedom.   


If one fails to read this book or at least a detailed review of Dr. Wolf’s book, that individual could be described metaphorically as an ostrich burying one’s head in the sand.

“Today, the equivalent of Israel’s Judges are the lower magistrates, i.e., governors, judges, sheriffs, county commissioners, and elected representatives. Some on this shortlist have begun to stand up against fed gov tyranny. Pray that many more like Samson of old will stand up for righteousness and freedom and cast off the yoke of the modern-day Philistines who overthrew the legitimate government!” – Jack Kettler


“What can we learn from 1 Kings 18:20-40, Elijah's victory over the Priests of Baal? Elijah mocked the priests of Baal by saying maybe their god was off in some other land giving them water instead, maybe he was asleep. Similarly, freedom lovers can mock the priests of Baal, i.e., politicians and wicked gov rulers today who promote the false god of statism.” – Jack Kettler 


Prayer for removal


Lord, have mercy on this nation and deliver us from the criminal syndicate whose leader stole the presidential election. This wicked tyrant is ruining the nation by destroying the military, the economy, education, health care, currency, and Biblical morality and has surrendered the Southern border to the drug and human trafficking cartels. Spare Your people from the sins of this unrighteous regime that speaks lies on a daily basis and has brought this nation onto the edge of destruction by collaborating with foreign enemies.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
