The year is 2025. Joe Biden, barely able to speak, has been in assisted living since 2022. Kamala Harris, who took over for Biden in 2022 after he resigned, is celebrating the 2024 elections. Harris had a 35 percent approval rating in November 2024 but somehow was elected after 15 million absentee and mail-in votes poured into precincts in 15 key states at 3 a.m. the morning after election day.
The unvaccinated for COVID have been forced to wear green armbands since 2022. That was one of the first measures Harris introduced upon taking office. Harris also instituted a new “Health Force” made up of Antifa, BLM and other left-wing activists who are paid a government salary to check the vaccination status of every person they encounter. If somebody does not have proof of vaccination, they are forced to wear the arm band, and if they resist they are beaten up and then sent to new camps for the unvaccinated that have been built near every city. There are reliable reports that more than 50,000 people have been killed in by the “Health Force” goons, but the media does not report these deaths so it is impossible to know for sure. Most of the news in 2025 is a repeat of government press releases and stories about how clean the cities are now that the population is 99 percent vaccinated. (The real number is more like 75 percent, but everybody knows the media stopped reporting facts many years ago).
The unvaccinated live either in the government camps or in special government housing that has been set aside in the poorest part of every U.S. city. It is impossible for the unvaccinated to find jobs since the Biden executive orders announced on Sept. 9, 2021, so most of them work odd jobs or perform illegal services for the vaccinated. It has been really difficult for the privileged vaccinated people to find plumbers, carpenters and electricians in the last few years, so there is a huge demand for illegal unvaccinated workers.
President Harris is excited because she is about to announce a new “vaccine” for the theta variant of SARS-CoV3. In total, there have been 14 rounds of vaccines announced since 2021, and all Americans are required to get all 14 rounds of shots. The VAERS database (the system for reporting adverse reactions to vaccines) was shut down soon after Harris took office in 2022, so it is impossible to know for sure how many people have been negatively affected by the vaccines. The hospital morgues have been overflowing with dead bodies and in many cities the bodies are just left outside in massive piles with tags on their toes. One foreign human rights organization has estimated that more than five million people in the U.S. — and more than 20 million worldwide — have been killed by the vaccines since 2020, but of course that is not reported by the media, and people who are rumored to believe the number are soon visited by the Health Force black shirts. The government claims that every dead body is a victim of one of the COVID variants.
Nobody knows for sure what is in the new “vaccine” being announced by President Harris. During the 2024 campaign a rogue web site based in Serbia reported that President Harris had taken more than $5 billion in under the table campaign funds from various pharmaceutical companies. The government is now spending more than $100 billion a year on vaccines so they can be distributed free. Pharmaceutical stocks are up 600 percent since 2021 in a generally down market, and a new phrase has been invented to describe pharmaceutical company employees: “COVID millionaires.”
President Harris keeps her mask on for the entire announcement. Masks are now mandatory 24 hours a day for all people. Kids are encouraged in public Zoom schools to sneak into their parents’ rooms at night to make sure their parents are sleeping with their masks on. The Health Force can stop any person at any time to make sure their masks are on tight enough and completely cover the nose and mouth. There have been many reports of Health Force black shirts breaking into homes to enforce mask rules, as well as check vaccination status, but the media calls those reports conspiracy theories. But it is true that repeated refusal to wear a mask correctly can get you sent to the “anti-vax camps” or of course beaten or killed by the Health Force black shirts.
“I am here today to announce a new vaccine, which we are calling the “Healthy, Happy Vaccine,” President Harris says to the cameras. “Not only will this vaccine protect you from the latest COVID variant, it is also proven to improve your mood and increase overall happiness. This vaccine will be available next week at all of the government vaccination centers. As you all know, we must keep that 99 percent vaccination rate, so please everybody get vaccinated as soon as possible. And you know that my friends in the Health Force are ready to help you make the right decision. Haha!!!”
President Harris then goes on to discuss white privilege and equity and social justice for two hours, but most people have tuned out by then because they have heard her stump speech many times before. At the pharmaceutical company headquarters, hundreds of executives are drinking the most expensive champagne and eating the most expensive caviar and foie gras. At the Health Force headquarters, the leaders are handing out the latest automatic weapons and electrified batons. And in the anti-vax camps and the anti-vax ghettoes, the people are trying to get by as best they can. Most of them are Christians and they get together to beg that Jesus will come again soon. Only He can save them from the nightmare created by their fellow citizens in the name of “safety.”
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” – C.S. Lewis
In the unlikely event that the Biden vaccine mandate is not enjoined by a federal judge soon, I see a major political opportunity for some local officials. State governors are the most likely, but others may also just announce that enforcement of the mandate is illegal in their jurisdiction.
If OSHA shows up at the front door, delay them until local law enforcement comes to escort them away. Follow their agents and write them traffic tickets for every slight violation. Stop all enforcement activities if they continue.
If they persist, arrest them and turn their local office into a homeless shelter. Or refugee camp.
Again, very well written, Geoff. There is certainly a Luciferian dimension to the notion of not letting one soul be lost, and the worship of ‘safetyism’.
When’s the movie coming out from this story? And does it have Katniss in it?
Jennifer Lawrence plays a single mother forced to live in the anti-vax ghetto. Her love interest is a very thin Matthew Mcconaughey who works as an illegal plumber for the privileged vaccinated. Mindy Kaling plays a Hitler-like Kamala Harris. That is the movie that would be made if we were dealing with an honest movie industry.
This isn’t fiction.
I appreciate the thoughtfulness of this creative chronicle and the sincerity of those concerned about vaccines.
However, I would like to know what is proposed as a solution to the niggling reality of people continuing to get sick or die of Covid-19?
In the past, Florida has been pointed to as a model. But it is not really working. Not sure of current data but two weeks ago, someone in Florida was dying of Covid every four minutes. We don’t even know death rates by county because the state stopped reporting that in June.
Variants are able to happen because virus transmission continues. Immediate, widespread vaccination could have helped wipe out the spread, as happened with smallpox and polio.
The sadly true part of this story is that, yes, there will be new variants as long as the virus is allowed to keep spreading.
So what is your proposal to defeat the virus?
I’m thinking aloud, Naismith, and so take this with the spirit it is delivered.
There are some very good vaccines in the pipeline from Novamax and Medicargo. They are waiting for final approvals and then we might have an alternative.
Some of the people who have been haranguing me to get the jab have been some of the least healthy people I know. Healthy eating habits, adequate sleep and exercise, vitamins C and D, exposure to sunlight and some of the principles contained in Doctrine and Covenants 89 might go a long way to keeping us safe.
I agree with your point about wiping out smallpox and polio but I’m not sure that the coronaviruses are quite the same. I certainly am not interested in a 6 monthly ‘subscription’ to booster shots for every variant that arises.
Lastly, I know the name of the last Covid 19 variant. It’s called the Fascist variant. Faith, not fear, always.
“he doth suffer that they may do this thing, or that the people may do this thing unto them, according to the hardness of their hearts, that the judgments which he shall exercise upon them in his wrath may be just; and the blood of the innocent shall stand as a witness against them, yea, and cry mightily against them at the last day…
[the chief judge] said unto them: After what ye have seen, will ye preach again unto this people, that they shall be cast into a lake of fire and brimstone?
Behold, ye see that ye had not power to save those who had been cast into the fire; neither has God saved them because they were of thy faith. And the judge smote them again upon their cheeks, and asked: What say ye for yourselves?…
Know ye not that I have power to deliver you up unto the flames?…
Will ye stand again and judge this people, and condemn our law? If ye have such great power why do ye not deliver yourselves?”
Naismith, there is widespread misinformation claiming that the virus can be defeated easily if only people got vaccinated and accepted lockdowns and mask mandates, etc. etc. The problem is that the premise is wrong. From the beginning of this epidemic, the best epidemiologists have said COVID cannot be completely eradicated, it can only be contained. We have learned to live with the common cold, which kills millions of people worldwide every year and has no vaccine. And yet, no mask mandates or lockdowns for the common cold. We must learn to live with COVID also, unfortunately, so the goal must be to achieve herd immunity and for people at risk to voluntarily decide to take the vaccines.
There are two ways for this to happen: low risk people can contract COVID and develop antibodies. This happened to me in 2020, which I got COVID and was sick for a few days with mild symptoms. Since then, I have been exposed to the delta variant multiple times and have not gotten sick. Studies have shown that natural immunity is more powerful than the vaccine at this point in preventing people from catching the disease.
Yes, older people and people at risk should get vaccinated — voluntarily. The vast majority of high risk people have already done this. But so far the vaccines have been proven to do nothing to stop the spread of the delta variant. So, the solution is not and never will be vaccination alone.
President Biden claimed that “freedom” should not be important. Let me explain to you why it should, and in fact I will point out that all people believe freedom should be important when dealing with pandemics. If the only goal is to defeat the virus, we could be much more successful if we mandated that 99 percent of the population be locked in family-sized plastic boxes 24 hours a day with feeding tubes, a TV so they can stream stuff and a computer so they can go on-line. One percent of the population would keep the infrastructure going, and everybody else would be “safe.”
I make this extreme example because nobody is in favor of this. So, clearly, personal freedom IS important when dealing with viruses, because nobody is proposing we all be forced to live in plastic boxes. But what if I made the argument: “if you are not in favor of plastic boxes, you just want people do die!” Can you see how dishonest this argument would be? Of course nobody wants other people to die — smart people understand that there is always a tradeoff between liberty and safety, and that if we want to have a just society we should favor liberty.
All mandates are wrong because they inevitably restrict personal freedom. The goal should be to voluntarily persuade people to take steps to restrict the virus and this will happen eventually. In 2022 and beyond, people will still die from COVID, and we must begin to be comfortable with that because it is our simple reality unless we want to adopt the plastic box strategy.
Naismith, like almost all left-wing people, you have been reading propaganda about your own state rather than the truth. When the summer comes in Florida, it gets hot and people go inside. COVID thrives when people are inside. Sunlight kills the virus. So, there will be an inevitable increases in viral infections in Florida and other southern states, and also, by the way, Nevada, which is not a free state and has plenty of mask mandates, lockdowns and stuff you apparently think is wonderful. In fact, the worst states for COVID have been the left-wing lockdown states like New York and New Jersey, which have a much higher per capita death rate than Florida. Florida is number 12 nationally in terms of deaths per capita, but this ranking will go way down as the winter approaches and the death rate unfortunately goes up again in northern states. The number of deaths and cases in Florida is way down from a month ago
Naismith, as usual you have been reading propaganda rather than the truth, which is why your view of your own state is so skewed. I lived in Florida for 20 years and will likely retire there in a few years. During the pandemic I have traveled from Colorado to Florida three times because it is relatively free and healthy place to be. But somehow people seem to think Florida is especially dangerous because of the media’s propaganda.
Here is the truth, as much as you don’t want to accept it: masks do not prevent the spread of viruses. Lockdowns do not work. Florida would have had its spike in cases and deaths even with more mask mandates and lockdowns. Vaccines should be voluntarily taken by high-risk people now, and then eventually by most people as the vaccines are refined and improved. All government mandates involve the use of force, and this leads to totalitarianism. The dystopian future I describe in the OP is a real possibility if we don’t start accepting the truth.
You can read “The Machine Stops” by EM Forester on Gutenberg. It’s a short story. Great exploration of the plastic box strategy.
I should also note that there is a better strategy for dealing with COVID that should have been adopted from the beginning:
2)no mask mandates
3)protection of the most at-risk people, ie people in nursing homes
4)Promotion of better overall health, including losing weight and fighting diabetes.
5)Promotion of taking vitamin D, zinc and magnesium.
6)Promotion of the treatment that Joe Rogan used when he got COVID 10 days ago, which included ivermectin, among other things. Rogan recovered in two days (just like I did).
7)Recognition that natural immunity is the best source of immunization.
So, here is a great example of how left-wing people are living in the Matrix (this applies to you, Naismith, so please read this). In the Matrix you are told that ivermectin is only a horse dewormer. WRONG
Even Wikipedia admits that ivermectin is primarily used as a human anti-parasitic. It is one of the most prescribed drugs in the world for humans, and the people who discovered it won the Nobel Prize in 2015. So, if you live in the Matrix, Ron DeSantis is manipulating COVID numbers and Joe Rogan is taking horse dewormer, but if you live in the real world you realize that Ron DeSantis did NOT manipulate COVID numbers and Joe Rogan did NOT take horse dewormer. He took a drug that has been shown to be harmless if the right dosage is taken and that may indeed work very well against COVID.
Stop believing the propaganda people! Break free from the Matrix.
What I’m reading now is that Covid will be _endemic_. Eventually, almost all of us will get it (hopefully not at the same time) sooner or later.
Delta and Mu are infecting vaccinated people, and those people are passing it on. One report said a vaccinated and infected-but-asymptomatic zookeeper likely gave it to 12 gorillas in a zoo.
So to me, it looks like the vaccine is merely to prevent hospitalizations and deaths.
On another note, this exemplifies a drawback of govt paid healthcare. Person A’s taxes go to pay for the healthcare of Person B, who makes bad health choices… smoking, drinking, over-eating leading to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, etc.
Whereas private health insurance can respond to market forces, and premiums tailored to individual behavior and risk, as life insurance usually is.
Book amen on both of your comments. You are definitely not in the Matrix.
If government is allowed to mandate the violation of your bodily autonomy as a precondition to your participation in society, that’s the end of agency. That’s not an overstatement. This is the hill.
Lattertarian, yes. The ignorant rubes who make fun of “freedom” are the first ones to scream bloody murder when their freedom is restricted (how about the “freedom of choice” of women and abortion, you progressives?). Now the president of the United States, which was founded on the principle of liberty, is saying that you must put in your body whatever concoction he believes is good for you. This is the hill indeed.
I would like to be positive, however. I don’t think this federal overreach will succeed. The resistance from Republican governors and AGs has been heartening. The UK just ended the vaccine passport plan, and so did Denmark. Many European countries are getting rid of many COVID restrictions. So, the pushback is working. Just take a look at what the people were chanting at football games across the country this Saturday to see how people are responding to the Dementor-in-Chief. Resistance is brewing, and it is good to see.
Progressive “logic” on vaccine mandates: “The protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn’t protect the protected.”
The Left: Inclusive!
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
The vaccine-mandaters: I protect others!
Inigo: I do not think it means what you think it means.
“someone in Florida was dying of Covid every four minutes.”
Alone, this tells us nothing. You do realize that Florida is now the 3rd largest state in the country in population. Larger than New York. One state that has almost a tenth of the entire US population is probably going to have a lot of people dying from COVID, particularly since the senior population in Florida has always been high.
I’d pay dear money for people to think about everything they read on CNN or MSNBC. Just *think* for a few minutes, for pity’s sake.
Anecdotal, but… I finally know someone whose health was seriously damaged by the Pfizer vaccine. Background: Early 50’s, stage 3 liver disease (genetic, not alcoholic), diabetes controlled with medicine (not insulin). January: Walks into clinic with blood glucose of 152. Gets the shot, and within 15 minutes is dizzy, splitting headache, blood glucose of 500. ( No change in diet.) He’s now on 60 units of insulin daily, and has a continuous level 4 to level 5 headache. He opted to get the 2nd shot, and recently got a third. Similar reactions on 2nd and 3rd: blood sugar spikes, dizzyness, and increase in headache. Headaches and need for daily insulin have been constant since 1st shot.
Book, my dad had a similar bad experience with the vaccines.
Your friend’s problem runs in my family. (Okay, so does alcoholism, but that is another story.) Diabetes is possibly the main culprit. Your friend needs to consult an endocrinologist and get to a healthy weight ASAP. The vaccine, like all vaccines, triggered a bit of inflammation (as you know, that is how vaccines work) which aggravated his endocrine system. If you want to understand what I am talking about, Google “nonalcoholic fatty liver disease” and “nonalcoholic steatohepatitis” and select reputable medical sources.
Glad to know he was smart enough to get vaccinated given his health, Covid could really mess him up. But a third shot? Why was he given a booster this early?
Segullah, he is under the care of an endocrinologist. The third shot was apparently at the direction of one of his doctors, at about 7 months after the first.
Indiana experienced this summer surge starting July 1st when masking, social-distancing and indoor capacity restrictions were removed/relaxed. (Granted, the surge also coincided with the spread of the delta variant.)
Also in August is when the general medical community realized that those who had the Pfizer shot had diminished antibodies at about the 6 month mark.
My supposition is that the Delta variant was “seeded” across the US mainly by immigrants coming through the southern border. Not all are tested, and of those who are, the positivity rate was reported to be 10%.
According to Michael Yon, those iimmigrants are not mainly Mexican and Central American anymore. He says 50,000 per month are coming through Colombia and Panama, the Darien Gap, pushed by Venezuela.
Venezuela (ie, Maduro and Iran) are facilitating immigrants from all over the world, India, Middle East, Africa, Haiti to get to the US. And the Mu variant is now coming into the US from Peruvian immigrants also
crossing the Darien Gap (the Panama/Colombian border).
Yon actually travels the world and talks to those people. He’s getting his info first hand.
To emphasize: That 50,000/month is in addition to however many Mexican and Central-American immigrants are crossing into the US. And to clarify: the 50,000 is not all South American either. I forget Yon’s
estimate, but he claimed people from all over the world were somehow getting to Venezuela and then getting “facilitated” through Colombia and into Panama. He actually talked to them, face to face, in Panama.
Colombia has essentially lost control of its border with Venezuela. What’s
going on with Venezuela and Colombia has been reported by Joseph Humire and Maria Fernanda Cabal. Over a million people, perhaps 2 million, have fled from Venezuela to Colombia.
The # of cases progression chart at Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistics_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_in_the_United_States
shows that the current surge has peaked. But it seems to me that we are going to get a Mu surge this fall/winter.
In July, Pfizer announced it was already working on a vaccine for Delta. But if Mu’s lineage doesn’t descend from Delta, then the Delta-specific vaccine may have no more effect, or even less effect, on Mu than the original vaccine would have on Mu.
People in Texas and Florida, Southern US, tend to go/stay inside during the hot summer, and perhaps that is a cause of this summer Covid surge.
People in the Northern US tend to go/stay indoors in the colder months. So, if my thinking is correct, what’s been happening in the south US the past couple months is going to happen in the Northern US starting around Thanksgiving, with a) people staying indoor, and b) traveling for the holidays.
In other words: this show ain’t over.
Add in crop reduction due to the North American drought (both Canada and US), so it will not be just higher prices… we are talking _scarcity_.
Masks are as effective as throwing sand through a chain-link fence About 1 percent of the Covid-19 spiked viruses will be deflected, but 99 percent will go through the mask. Zinc, vitamin D3 and magnesium are a better preventative every day. At the first sign of a virus infection, treat with Ivermectin (12 mg) for five days India’s largest state Uttar Pradash has virtually eliminated Covid 19 by using Ivermectin. Our DC “experts” are pursuing the wrong protocols (masks and vaccines)..
Unfortunately, some commenters who live in the Matrix have been posting some fake news about Florida and COVID. I am not going to repeat the misinformation from these people, but here is the truth regarding how Florida reports its COVID data:
