Quixotic but nonetheless satisfying …

In recent days I have witnessed the following:

  • A youth hockey tournament that was to take place in Aspen, Colorado, was cancelled by, I assume, the Pitkin County health department.
  • Our fellow writer Steve Kelly pointed out that medical people think that skiing should be cancelled due to gatherings in buildings around ski resorts leading to transmission of the supposed virus.
  • A sign in the gym where I work out warned all members to wear masks, otherwise “the county will shut us down.”

This is fascism, as Steve noted in the title to his piece.

Fascists are part of what Étienne de La Boétie in the 16th century referred to as a “vast network of corrupted people with an interest in maintaining tyranny.” We all know that power corrupts, and people having taken hold of the reins and who have power to shut down hockey, skiing, and gyms, are corrupt. There is no other word for it. 

I thank a Brit, Andrew Johnson, for the idea of using Freedom of Information laws to call out these corrupt monsters. I have written the letter below to the head of Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Health, citing the specific code section of our Colorado FOIA. (Federal FOIA only applies to federal agencies.) Every state has such a law. I am nobody, and this guy will likely ignore me, meaning I have to take my quixotic quest thereafter to the governor, who is, in my view, a silly twit. After he ignores me, I got nuthin’. Therefore, I urge everyone reading this to do the same. Feel free to plagiarize, as I did with Andrew on item one of my letter.

It is only numbers that will force them to respond. Remember, these people are lawless, but must pretend in public forums to respect the law. Make them do so. Use certified mail with a return receipt, otherwise your letter will be filed, circularly.

[Today, October 20, I am substituting the actual letter mailed to Jefferson County Public Health. I made a few changes.]

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST

 October 19, 2020

Name not published here*
Executive Director, Jefferson County Public Health
645 Parfet St.
Lakewood, CO 80215

Dear Dr. Xxxxxxx:

Under the Colorado Open Records Law § 24-72-201 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that are in the possession, custody or control of Jefferson County Public Health describing the following:

  1. Scientific evidence of the existence of the SARS-COV-2 virus, said to cause “Covid-19.” My understanding of virology and Koch’s (later Rivers’) Postulates would require true isolation of this virus via centrifuge, with initial isolation followed by repeated filtration and then purification of said virus, yielding what virologists refer to as a “gold standard,” or a virus that can be photographed and sequenced all by itself. What I have seen in published scientific papers refer to the culturing of something, or the performance of an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test), or the sequencing of something by introduction of foreign or patched sequences. I want your evidence of existence via isolation in the traditional sense, separating it from everything else around it. I want evidence of satisfaction of either Koch’s or Rivers’ Postulates, preferably the former.
  2. Your scientific evidence supporting your requirement that citizens of Jefferson County wear facial masks as an effective means of preventing the spread of a virus. This would refer to scientific studies done which include control groups.
  3. Your scientific evidence supporting the quarantining of citizens of Jefferson County for fourteen days upon testing positive for SARS-Cov-19. Why fourteen? If a virus, a strand of RNA encased in protein, is not alive, how does it maintain its ability to infect people in open air for such a long period? What scientific studies exist supporting this number?
  4. Your scientific evidence supporting your requirement that citizens of Jefferson County maintain six feet distance from one another when in public. What scientific study exists supporting this odd practice?
  5. Your scientific evidence that “testing positive” for SARS-Cov-2 is equivalent to having a disease. How is a test that cannot measure viral load able to define a disease? Are we not all carrying within us trillions of cells along with “viral” and bacterial organisms? How does identification of one sequence from a non-purified virus indicate disease?
  6. Your scientific evidence that the polymerase chain reaction machine (PCR), whose inventor, Nobel Laureate Dr. Kary Mullis, said should not be used for diagnosis of disease, is in fact useful and accurate for that purpose.

If you do not have the evidence I request on hand, but instead have relied on others for it, then I ask to be directed to the sources of your evidence. I do not ask for appeals to authoritative sources, but to actual evidence.

Your office has inflicted extraordinary, burdensome, and financially harmful measures on the citizens of Jefferson County. As Carl Sagan reminds us, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. You have made extraordinary demands on us. Please provide your extraordinary evidence justifying those demands. If you cannot provide this evidence or proof, this information should be disclosed to me in writing.

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $50.  However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of the supposed pandemic and the official response to it. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.

The statute requires a response to this request within three days following receipt of this letter.  If access to the records I am requesting will take longer, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records. I can be reached at [my email address]. I will accept only a written response.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite in writing each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.

Sincerely,

Mark Tokarski

PS: “That which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.” (Hitchens’ Razor). The burden of proof is on you for everything above.

    1. Excellent piece. Formulates much of what I’ve been thinking/sensing much better than I could.

      He concludes with a bit of a warning to those of us outside the cult… Probably justified. In theory I have no interest in “quixotic” attempts to rescue cultists. In practice it’s tempting to try… There comes a point at which it may be playing with fire. Nothing is certain though. They could fail yet. The “conservatives” are a large bloc, and they don’t really care for the cult. Even if they’re partly taken in by it, as well. Many of those at the grassroots level are very skeptical of the whole thing, still. Despite the long barrage.

  1. Great work, Mark. The Freedom of Information Act is a federal statute we use often to get documents and other public disclosure of important facts. I’ll send you via email an example of a federal request which can be used as a template to any and all federal agencies. I wouldn’t necessarily dismiss the legal authority of a “borrowed” state statute, here in Montana referred to as “open meeting” laws, and/or the “right to know” statute. I’d bet money Colorado has some constitutional near-equivalent.
    State courts generally permit pro-se citizen representation. It’s a lot of work, but possible to present your own case in state district, and state supreme court. You have less than a slim chance of “winning,” but you will be heard nevertheless.

    1. Thanks Steve – Colorado has a FOIA, and I borrowed parts of this letter from a suggested FOIA request I found on line. But I will take anything you want to send my way.

      I have done pro se before, and you’re right, it is a lot of work, and lawyers are ready to trip you up over the slightest mistake. But it doesn’t scare me either, though it should. I’ve been reading a lot of Michael Connelly lately (Bosch, Lincoln Lawyer), and he has great insight into the legal system. Quite frankly, lawyers can outsmart just about everyone because they know how to play the game, while we don’t. The legal system is not about the law, but about who has the best lawyer. Representing myself, I’d have to say I am extremely disadvantaged. But there is the annoyance factor too, which might work to my advantage.

      I wonder if I should hint in the letter than I am going to follow through on this by any and every means available.

      And if you have not, do watch the Bernadette Wilson video above that Swede brought us. She’s a day maker.

      1. Watched it, loved it. I try very hard never threaten litigation, but rather, ask (again, in written form) if denial constitutes “exhaustion of all your administrative remedies.” This signals to your opposition a certain determination, IMO, that implies that you are willing to pursue to the next level: judicial.

    EPILOGUE
    2. EPILOGUE – II (continued
    http://literaturepage.com/read/crimeandpunishment-562.html

    He was in the hospital from the middle of Lent till after Easter. When he was better, he remembered the dreams he had had while he was feverish and delirious. He dreamt that the whole world was condemned to a terrible new strange plague that had come to Europe from the depths of Asia. All were to be destroyed except a very few chosen. Some new sorts of microbes were attacking the bodies of men, but these microbes were endowed with intelligence and will. Men attacked by them became at once mad and furious. But never had men considered themselves so intellectual and so completely in possession of the truth as these sufferers, never had they considered their decisions, their scientific conclusions, their moral convictions so infallible. Whole villages, whole towns and peoples went mad from the infection. All were excited and did not understand one another. Each thought that he alone had the truth and was wretched looking at the others, beat himself on the breast, wept, and wrung his hands. They did not know how to judge and could not agree what to consider evil and what good; they did not know whom to blame, whom to justify. Men killed each other in a sort of senseless spite. They gathered together in armies against one another, but even on the march the armies would begin attacking each other, the ranks would be broken and the soldiers would fall on each other, stabbing and cutting, biting and devouring each other. The alarm bell was ringing all day long in the towns; men rushed together, but why they were summoned and who was summoning them no one knew. The most ordinary trades were abandoned, because everyone proposed his own ideas, his own improvements, and they could not agree. The land too was abandoned. Men met in groups, agreed on something, swore to keep together, but at once began on something quite different from what they had proposed. They accused one another, fought and killed each other. There were conflagrations and famine. All men and all things were involved in destruction. The plague spread and moved further and further. Only a few men could be saved in the whole world. They were a pure chosen people, destined to found a new race and a new life, to renew and purify the earth, but no one had seen these men, no one had heard their words and their voices.

  3. MT – Indeed, a noble effort on your part. Following are 54 pages that were aggregated by Christine Massey of Fluoride Free Peel (out of Canada) encompassing the most recent updates on 20 FOI (called FOI outside of US) requests/replies from institutions in Canada, UK, England, Australia, New Zealand, and Scotland. All evidence the fact that the “SARS-CoV-2 virus” was never PROPERLY purified and isolated. As you already know, ALL specimens taken from human subjects were first “preserved” in fetal bovine serum, then mixed with Vero cells (monkey kidney) – which is what they term “isolation”, and THEN were placed in the PCR machine to amplify. https://www.fluoridefreepeel.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/FOI-and-formal-responses-re-covid19-virus-isolation-purification-from-20-institutions-Oct-16-2020.pdf

  4. From Christine Massey regarding “virus isolation” (I copied from her Twitter account; these are not my words):

    1) the typical monkey business of mixing a patient sample with Vero (aka monkey kidney) cells and universal transport medium . . . which typically includes fetal bovine serum (another source of genetic contamination) and toxic drugs,

    2) irrationally blaming “the virus” (that was never looked for or found in the patient sample) for any toxic effects on the Vero cells,

    3) passing off cell-free supernatant from the resulting concoction as “viral isolate”,

    4) completely useless PCR testing,

    5) comparing the results of PCR tests performed on 1) total RNA from a patient sample mixed with fetal bovine serum and on 2) total RNA from Vero cells that were mixed with a patient sample and fetal bovine serum versus 3) total RNA from Vero cells NOT mixed with a patient sample or fetal bovine serum, and illogically attributing the results to “the virus” that was never looked for or found in the patient sample,

    6) metagenomics analysis involving alleged genomes of “SARS-COV-2” that were in fact MANUFACTURED, not discovered,

    7) matching of “whole genome sequences” found in 2 mixtures that each include the patient sample – both of which include genetic contamination from the fetal bovine serum.

    When do we get to the science??

    1. excellent. 7-points of perfect fake virology. in that thread from a couple of days ago i added comments and linked to the original paper supposedly describing zika discovery and isolation in 1952. compares nicely with this.

    2. By the way, if you have not, by any means possible get hold of The Contagion Myth by Cowan and Morell. I got my copy from Simon and Schuster and am now 67 pages into it. It is dense-packed with devastation (for virologists) concerning the current state of science, that is, utter corruption.

      I will pass my copy along when I am done with it, in a week or so. I can see why Amazon banned this book.

  5. Quite the “bombshell” link MM passed on from a reader the other day, imo…

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8320147/French-serial-killer-expert-admits-life-work-FAKE-including-murder-wife.html

    …Despite its being 6 months old. Can’t believe I’m just now hearing about it— that it didn’t “go viral” in any organic way, across the sites I follow. Maybe I just missed it. Shows that nothing is really “known” unless it gets heavy media exposure though; this story was on several major outlets, still might as well never have been published, for all the effect it will have on public opinion.

    It shows what a joke major media are— they cover it, but ask very few questions. Such curious-minded “journalists” they are… ha.

    The implicit assumption of the article seems to be– I guess?— that this guy was just a “bad apple.” Quite freakish, yes, but whattayagonnado? It happens. Moving on…

    In fact, the story is obviously much bigger, and probably “fake” itself, on some level, by its own internal contradictions. For starters, the guy wrote 40 books, had an audience of millions, a multi-decade career, worked on documentaries, probably gave hundreds of interviews, was a “leading serial-killer expert”—- and yet it just comes out NOW, after this “4th Eye” show points out inconsistencies, that he was a total fraud? A self-confessed mythomaniac?

    None of the editors, producers, police detectives and officials involved on the cases, colleagues in the field etc etc, ever noticed they were working with a fabulist? It obviously indicts the entire mainstream media that supported and promoted him. That’s the whole standard defense of mainstream credibility— that it has too many competent respected professionals involved, to let any fraud go on too long. They couldn’t “all be in on it,” and any individual bad actor would quickly be uncovered.

    Guess that theory’s down the tubes.

    Furthermore, it’s an indictment on this level: the guy’s work has reached millions over decades, “informed” the worldview of all those people, making them fearful, distrustful, traumatized, etc. The “retraction”— a few limp articles here and there— lands like a pebble of half-truth in a tsunami of lies. Given that they published it at all, they ought to be (if only theatrically) wringing their hands in shame and embarrassment, full of mea culpas and vows to do better, implement safeguards, at least some sign that they recognize their guilt and complicity. But no. They barely even chastise him, the main scapegoat— he’s still even called a “leading expert” and so on, rather than “disgraced former expert” or whatever. There’s no mention of punishment— it sort of comes across as an amusing foible of a now doddering old man.

    Certainly no mention that there ought to be investigations and punishment of all who worked on all the fraudulent books and documentaries.

    They even have a line re-upping the essential myth— his fake wife character was based on a woman he knew, who REALLY WAS killed by a serial killer, the article casually affirms. No mention that such an assertion is meaningless, if leading serial killer experts can have multi-decade careers of fraud, and “the system” will never notice or check their lies, except possibly as a little asterisk at the end of their life, to salve their guilty conscience before they meet their maker, perhaps.
