Government, Not Coronavirus, Is Killing Small Businesses


December 23rd, 2020

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prostperity. 

A video of a confrontation between Ventura County, California health officials and restaurant owner Anton Van Happen has gone viral. The health officials were ordering Mr. Van Happen to close his business because he allegedly violated California’s ban on outdoor dining. Mr. Van Happen asked the health officials if the government will pay his employees and his rent while his business is indefinitely closed.

Mr. Van Happen is hardly the only small business owner worried about how to pay bills during the lockdowns. Many small businesses operate on a narrow profit margin, so being forced to “temporarily” shut down or limit the number of customers they can serve is a virtual death sentence.

The lockdowns have already caused as many as 200,000 small businesses to permanently close. Lockdowns, by shrinking the number of employers, lead to long-term unemployment or lower wages for many workers.

While governments have terrorized small businesses, they have typically deemed the big chain stores “essential businesses” so they can remain open. The lockdowns are thus another government policy that gives big businesses a competitive advantage over their smaller competitors.

The benefits big businesses get from the lockdowns — including fewer competitors, more customers, and a job market with more workers competing for fewer jobs — may explain why many big businesses are not fighting the lockdowns. Instead, most big retail chains are requiring their workers and customers to wear masks. Many big businesses may soon deny service to those who refuse to receive a Covid vaccine.

One would think that progressives who claim to oppose policies that benefit big corporations like Walmart, Target, and Amazon would oppose the lockdowns. Sadly, even many progressives are unquestioningly parroting the Covid propaganda and demonizing those who dissent.

By slowing down the development of herd immunity among the population, the lockdowns could put those truly at risk in greater danger. Lockdowns have also had negative effects such as increases in drug and alcohol abuse and increases in domestic violence. Meanwhile, many schoolchildren are deprived of the opportunity to interact with their teachers and their peers. Instead, these children are subjected to the fraud of “virtual learning.”

Resistance to Covid tyranny is growing as more people figure out that lockdowns and mandates are both unnecessary and harmful. This resistance was largely started by small business owners faced with a choice between obeying the government or making sure they, and their employees, can feed their families. Small business owners have been leaders in recent anti-lockdown protests across America.

Eventually, the resistance will grow to the point where the politicians will be forced to either double down on authoritarianism or admit the lockdowns were a mistake. Either way, those of us who know the truth must resist the Covid tyranny until government officials no longer terrorize small businesses for the crime of serving willing consumers.

      tptb are just letting you know they have the power to lock everything down including Walmart Target and Amazon if you go getting any ideas about revolution.
      Better stock up.

      they can turn mandates on and off like a light switch

      Almost everything done in a dollar economy, could have been done, discretely, using alternative currencies, except there has been more bad faith than acquisitiveness.

    3. Did you know says:

      California just had a court ruling saying that their is no science to proof people get sick from eating outdoors and such proposal to ban restaurants from doing that was illegal …

    4. Could COVID-19 be the catalyst for the collapse of the western world’s financial system? Is this the grand scheme to eliminate the industrialized world’s middle class? The small business owner and all of the professionals and contractors who are employed or in business because of these small business owners? Why is the idea of removing cash from circulation and replacing it with digital “currency” being pushed so hard in these COVID-19 relief bills? Will this financial collapse and “reset” be the open door for all of the progressive agendas? Mass panic takes away reason from the reasonable and certainly their rights. Are the true goals of this and future pandemics primarily two-fold? To reduce global populations (specifically the elderly who cost the most in the health care) and eliminate the middle class of the western world?​

      This would then leave the two classes that have always existed prior to the birth of America. The 1% elite, ruling class and the 99% poor and dependent class. Effectively ending the great American experiment.

      The leftist billionaires demand a ruling class consisting of them and their political minions. Everyone else will be the peasant class to serve them, this is what socialism has always been about. Never in the history of man has a nation granted such freedom to the common people as America has. Well, folks “the Great American Experiment” is over. The elitists have had enough and it is time to put us BACK IN OUR PLACE. Cleverly they are doing it through manipulation and their brainwashed minions (useful idiots) are helping them. That is what liberalism has always been about. Can you see the formula? Liberalism plus Socialism leads to Globalism (a one-world government run by guess who? That’s right = the beast).

      ​This is the reasoning behind the globalist incitement of civil war in western countries.
      These globalists want the dependent class and the middle class to kill as many of each other as possible. It is population control only. These globalist’s believe they only need 500 million people to adequately fill the servant class ranks of their new world order.

    5. This is why cities and states are moving away to red states…those economies will do great. This all being done by design.

    6. Hmm, I’m here from the government to ” help ” you survive, if I / we have to crush you into the ground and kill you, we will help you “. sound familiar ?

      Hitler was a true romantic that opposed reason and intellectualism, and just wanted people to feel their emotions and act based on reasonless mob rule, raw emotion, and brute force. Who knew that it would be such a Hansel and Gretel fairy tale dream come true of romanitically shoving people in ovens just like Hansel and Gretel, and invading other countries and bombing them. Yes. Hitler’s policies are revered and systematically enforced by some Jews, particularly in Israel, except that they made an exception for Jews in that case. What about the people that are not Jews though that are responsible for these problems? Ultimately, it boils down to the government. The United States government, financial sector, and corporations are wrought with corruption, and Muslims were supposedly the Guilty religion after 9/11 which again turned out to be government, corporations, and the financial sector. So, it is obviously the Jews fault and not the governments, corporations, and financial sector’s fault, Because if the Jews are the problem, then everyone else in those institutions are therefore not the problem, and the Jews are the smallest percent of the population, after Muslims, and people have figured out that the Muslims were not the problem, and yes, the wealthiest people in America are all Jewish, which the government not only permitted, but enabled and profiteered from. It is the disproprtionate level of wealth, power, and monopoly by Jews in tech and finance that is by all acoounts unprecedented, and should not have occured, regardless of relgious heritage or practice. TR was somewhat of a trust buster, but didn’t go far enough.The force that must be reckoned with that is destructive is the stock market. Bring back the sanity when failures were allowed to fail, and not bailed out, like it was in 1987! The majority of the bailout money heads straight to China anyways, through the Pentagon, Treasury, Wall Street money laundering circuit, also permited by our government through all of the 1993-2020 deregulation, and the 1987 deregulation that allowed the Plunge Protection Team, that when first mentioned on CNBC years ago, produced jaw dropping results by the commentators, like, did they just mention that? People aren’t supposed to talk about that. It has to stop! The lying has to stop! It is not only the Jews that are lying. Your  solution is a fall guy, obviously! A fall guy for the gross negligence and corruption that has destroyed our country! Well, it happened prior to the Great Depression too, and Morgan, Rockefeller, and Mellon were not Jews. The stock market is the problem! It is the entire concept of the stock market that is the problem! It s criminogenic by its very nature, and if it was run by Jesuits, ( Banca Monte dei Paschi ), or Japanese, or Chinese, or Mexicans, ir would produce results equally as bad, and of course during  the roaring twenties WASPS were in control. It’s like saying, I lost my money at a Jewish cassino, damned Jew! I will only go to a Christian cassino from now on. The idea is stupid as hell! 

      This is history repeating! Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it! It didn’t work out for Hitler, and it won’t work out for you, so you can choose to specialize in being wrong if it pleases you, but being right matters!

      Out of all of my history reading of the founding fathers, I have never come across a single document or letter by any of the on the stock market, or the importance of the stock market, brokerage firms, or Wall Street, including Amexander Hamiltion. The Stock market is anti-American, and we know this by where the money ends up, but more importantly, that it is invested in anti-American constitutional rights violating technology and murder for money technology, by and large. And it is a terrorist network, proven by 9/11 and the scamdemic, the missing $21 trillion from the Pentagon, and also Transition Integrity Project. Why Trump went along with all of this is truly baffling, consiidering that he was already wealthy and far more respected than he currently is. Trump cares very much about his reputation. I guess that he made the mistake of trusting the wrong people, and he sure as hell was surrounded by the wrong people, for the most part.

        I did not have children, and I do not regret it because this country and society is one giant torture chamber that I could not subject anyone to with a clear conscience. I flat out reject almost everything about this society and what it represents. It has only gotten worse since my childhood. If it was my choice, I never would have been born either.

        I forgot to mention that Wall Street so funding BLM, which did end up being a terrorist network that engaged in mob violence of looting, vandalism, arson, and even murder in rare instances, and BLM Global Network does in fact have stock shares listed by Weather Underground affilated terrorist Susan Rosenberg who is on the board of Thousand Currents that the donatioms are funneled to from BLMGN, BLM Global Network, this terrorism is also used for insurance purposes. BLM is in league with Wall Street corporations and Wall Street itself.

        The stock market has such a lomg record of acts of terrorism that it is a lengthy list over merely the past twenty years. That is an extremely small time frame to pack such a lengthy, all encompassing record of local, state, national, and international terrorism into.

        All of this has totally destabilized not only the economy, but the foundations of all three branches of government, all government institutions, and all of society as well.

        The education system responded exactly as Leonard Pekoff wrote about Hitler and used Hitler tactics. I had said when it first started right after the election and schools and universities started having safe space rooms that this was obviously a psychological domination tactic attempting to induce emotional regression. Hitler also said that whoever controls the youth will control the future. I have also called the schools concentration camps. The teachers do not teach. They merely discipline and exert fascist and total control over students and their parents. Students have been demanded to take psychiatric drugs by the teachers that have no training in medicine, psychiatry, psychology, or sociology. The teachers are obviously driving the students crazy, in addition to boring them to tears with their mentally incompetent drivel.

        If I had school aged children, I would not send them to concentration camps. Even home schooling still demands that parents meet particular objectives and rely on computers where the government is directly spying right in the home.

        This is not a free country at all. It never has been during my life time.

        Public schools may help teachers and kids that are less intelligent, but they harm others for the latters benefits, and produce terrible results, at best a kid that has no common sense and very lityle knowledge, and at worst a drug addict, psychiatric basket case, or early prison lifer. There is no accountability or expectation on the part of the schools and teachers to society, children, or parents, and children and parents are demanded to be totally accountable to them, and so is society in supporting their enormous expenses.

        Talk about a bad deal for everyone that does not work for the education system, or have to have mothers or fathers employed outside of the home. The teachers are more like baby sitters that abuse kids than teachers in many instances, or just baby sitters.

      Biden and the government are doing what they historically have done when the going gets tough, after they have been exposed for economic and  political fraud, terrorism. They are terrorists! They are also a cult! They behave like a terrorist cult! Some even say that the masks are an initiation! An initiation into total authoritarianism! Hitler called German citizens that were not yet part of the Nazis, initiates, they were being initiated by Hitler who demaded total conformity that stood intotal defiance of reason and logic! Reason, logic, and truth were the enemy of the state! Which is why what is happening to Assange and many others, including myself is happening!  The ones calling for these measures are psychopaths! They are also like minded people, and as Walter Lippman said, “Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much.” They are of one mind. It is the machine, or 
      The Blob, or MICIMATT, or The Stock Market, which they are all direct beneficiaries of and are practically mechanically motivated and driven by instinct to protect the Beastly Wild Hog. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be bullish on stocks. It is the total senselessness, denial, and collective narcissism and insanity that has mysteriously defied all logic and has gone hog wild. It is a wild hog market or a market gone hog wild. That is what this is all about. This beastly body is a terrorist network that farms people for everything that it can, it demands all property from everyone, drop of blood, and every precious moment. It must be stopped. The lying has to stop! 9/11, seven false flag wars and total surveillance, the end of liberty and freedom, massive government, financial, and  corporate  deregulation, coinciding with massive increased regulations on individuals and families, and no accountability from anyone in government, finance, tech, utilities, corporations, media, or 
      healthcare. They will keep persisting, so I will keep resisting. They want it all. They deserve nothing but prison sentences in federal pennitentiaries. They demand respect, they have earned contempt. They demand compliance, they will be met with defiance, because they are asking for things that nobody has any right to be asking of anyone. How does it end? Who stands up and says this is insane?! They are all in on it. Then with the Transition Integrity Project, and still in the middle of the misophobic hypochondia scientific fraud scamdemic.

      This is what suggest. These individuals are out of their minds. They cannot be reasoned with. This is a religion to them. It disavows reason or logic and is based on faith in their abilities and faith in their will alone. Despite the fact that their abilities and will have continuously produced terrible results and are almost always wrong in attempting to believe that their will will prevail, because their will is almost always defied now. At first it wasn’t, and most people fell for it as far as I am aware of. It is hardly surprising that they are behaving precisely as compulsive gamblers behave, since it is driven by the stock market. Compulsive gamblers know that the odds are against them, but believe in magical thinking and superstition like rabbits foots, lucky shirts, or shoes, even though there is no logical reason for this. Compulsive gamblers also consistently lose, which makes them extremely dangerous individuals for anyone that is in a relationship with them, because they will end up losing everything by remaining with them. 

      So, back to my solution for this, have the Psychiatric field start
      intervening and telling them that they are exhibiting thse unhealthy behaviors to the point of being dangers to others that pose a grave danger to society, which is in fact true. The psychiatric field has in the past punished the machines victims. It is time for the psychiatric field to start punishing the machine that is destroying society. Maybe, if the charlatans are confronted by their own they will stop, and I realize that psychiatrists have been quacks themselves, but this is a kamakazi mission that the machine has hijacked and taken everyone else on against their will for the most part. The psychiatrists should also be calling them psychopaths because it is an indisputable fact that they are, and since they are running the country, it is particularly a hostile, dangerous, and dysfunctional society. They are predators of the most extreme degree! Maybe they will stop if the medical community demands it of them. Over sevety percent of healthcare workers at a hospital in California refuse to get vaccinated because they are aware that it has deadly, hazardous ingredients. Many in the medical community have spoken out against this. It is time for the Physicians and scientists in the government that are honest to issue a public statement together on national media about what is taking 
      place. Ron Paul and Rand Paul could lead the way and organize this effort since they have the most name recognition.

      I know that Ron Paul has been criticizing it. I have not heard much from Rand Paul, but maybe he has been and I don’t know it. Minnesota Senator Scott Jensen has been threatened to have his license revoked by the state regulatory agency. There have been others as well. The individuals are psychopaths that belong in prison that are calling for this. They pose grave dangers to society. They are threats to human life, and it is they who should have their licenses revoked! It is in fact slow motion mass murder that they are guilty of. It is diabolically evil and sadistic! It is the most heinous cime against humanity ever perpetrated! It has totally destroyed an entire generation! It is unpardonable and unforgiveable! 

      Andrea Iravani

    10. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Listen to these two MICIMATT academia psychopaths discuss giving people money to get vaccinated even if it is life threatening and even if it causes infertility justify doing it by saying that if someone is given a choice, it is not coersion, ( even though the alternative to that choice for many would be homelessness, starvation, and slow death as the alternative to the vaccine.) Kevin Barrett who ran as a Libertarian Medicare for all 2008 congressional candidate thankfully lost in the general election, since he would have been a law maker who finds no moral objections in forcing people to choose between two life threatening choices, and this idea was proposed by PhD. Philosopher from Evergreen Valley College in San Jose and was graduated from Cornell, that has flat out rejected the philosophy of ethics by Socrates. Scum bag low lifes! Keep your children away from these dangerous predatory psychopaths, whose ethics are limited to destroying other people and their lives strictly for their own benefit. Their own benefit is the greater good evidently as far as they are concerned! They are such scum that they are totally oblivious to how morally outrageous, repugnant, and offensive they sound!
