The Piscataquis Resolution (an overview)

The Piscataquis Resolution

Change is in the wind and it borders on the miraculous…of sorts. Joe Biden had barely enough time to finish the oath of office and Democrat leaders across the Nation were announcing their intent to reopen their economies. Claims of plummeting infection rates coupled with a sudden pivot to hydroxychloroquine as an effective and viable treatment for the Wuhan Virus, while the media has returned to naming a virus by its geographical place of origin, lends credence to the lingering and growing skepticism of the pandemic narrative. Call it the Biden Effect.

I’m sure the doctors forced out of their practices for spouting “nonscience”, which has become “nowscience”, will be afforded a heartfelt apology from the AMA and others who sneered at those brave, and now proven, practitioners. Perhaps not, as focusing on discounting the reports of the effectiveness of the wonder drug Ivermectin seems to be the next layer of “nonscience”. Imagine the lives that could have been saved had hydroxychloriquine been allowed and encouraged for use, and how many more will be lost in the wranglings over the political impact of simple wonder drug.

But its science and science, as of late, seems to have a healthy dose of political animus. Its no wonder that many Americans, including Mainers, have a healthy distrust of modern medical science, which seems to be more media driven and predicated on political expediency rather than research and scientific method. Science blows in the wind and whither it lands, nobody knows.

Recently, the County Commissioners of Piscataquis County, Maine, sent a Resolution of Protest to the Governor of Maine, The Piscataquis Resolution is a voice for all the concerns, frustrations, helplessness, and anger that the Commissioners’ constituents have expressed to them, asking their elected officials to “Please, do something!” about the draconian lock down and mandates enforced upon them. Predictably, the resolution was met with derision by the media, whose reporting read more like a cut and paste of local protesters’ chants. With the local cancel culture groups in full throat (Yes, Piscataquis has a cancel culture group working out of the Center Theater in Dover-Foxcroft.), the Commissioners have faced protest, vile threats, and character assassinations from the cancel groups, media, Governor, Attorney General, and legislature.

So lets look at The Piscataquis Resolution which, according to the media, is rife with falsehoods and racist terminology. First, the resolution is an extension, or next step, of a protest letter sent by the Commissioners along with three other rural counties, over the summer. The purpose was to lodge complaint and demand audience with the Governor to voice the concerns of their respective counties; unfortunately, the Governor never acknowledged the letter.

Piscataquis has taken the next step of a public and formal Resolution of Protest against the Governor. Here is an overview of the points which have caused the most angst among the local cancel groups. The real over arching anger is directed to that startling affront that any voice could be given to an opinion that does not coincide with, or is contrary to, theirs and, therefore, must be silenced.

The Commissioners do not agree and feel they represent the majority of the residents of Piscataquis. As two of the commissioners ran unopposed and the third was elected by nearly 60% of the vote tally, there is evidence to support this claim. That is a strong majority.

Some town officials have claimed that the Commissioners only represent unorganized townships, not the organized towns. If so, then why are elections for the office of the Commissioner held in organized towns, the votes are tallied, and counted with the unorganized townships? The officials may do well to check statutes which grants County Commissioners oversight for towns on tax abatement issues and other budgetary issues.

The criticisms of the Governor have been publicly made by both parties over this past year. What has been of particular concern for Piscataquis have been reports from distraught, angry, frustrated, and emotional residents who have been tormented in their daily lives and businesses by the gestapo-like tactics of the local cancel group who have been taking pictures, making video recordings, and threatening to report their neighbors for lock down violations to the government, at the behest of the Governor. The businesses of Piscataquis live under the constant threat of closure or other punitive action by the Governor through her local lackeys.

One of the major accusations of racism against the resolution is the use of the term Wuhan Virus. This is simply an indication of the place of origin for the virus. Interestingly, it was the media who first used the term, and with a new administration in Washington, (the Biden Effect) the media have returned to labeling Wuhan variants by their geographical location.

The Piscataquis Resolution also states that face coverings and lock downs only lengthen the time of the pandemic. A phone call from a doctor, who called to express his concern with the resolution, agreed that this point was true and it is by intent. For those that battle infectious disease, lengthening the stay of the pandemic in the populous gives more time to study it and find a cure and, while many may argue the efficacy of this cold and calculated view, to the medical field, in the end the lives they believe saved will justify the means.

Most of derision was focused on the claim that the prolonged use of face coverings has been proven to cause bacterial pneumonia and respiratory disease. This was based upon Dr. Fauci’s study of the Spanish Flue where he asserts that the flue broke down the immune system, face covering were prescribed to combat the spread, but in the end bacterial pneumonia was the final killer. While it is true that the study does not specifically indicate face coverings as the trigger for the move from flu to bacterial pneumonia, fact checkers ignore the numerous studies of this and other pandemics that cite that the bacteria in the mouth and nasal passages moved from these areas into the damaged and vulnerable lower lung tissue.

This begs the simple common sense question: What forced the bacteria in the oral and nasal cavities, which is normally present, to move from its usual position in the oral and nasal cavities to the lungs? Similarly, how can the medical field expect the average layperson to approach the wearing, touching, adjusting, and discarding of masks with the same training and precision that comes with the years of practice that a medical professional requires? And are the governing agencies properly administering proper practices concerning masks?

There are repeated warnings throughout the dental and oral medical fields of a rising trend of “mask mouth.” This is a bacterial infection of the dental tissue, along with inflammation and bacterial infection in the throat and mouth. The repeated warnings urge those that have these symptoms of swelling and redness in the gums or oral tissue to see a doctor before the symptoms are irreversible.

The underlying purpose of The Piscataquis Resolution is to give voice to the people who have no voice and have been ignored. As the Commissioners stated at the signing, those protesting the resolution have the government and the media to voice their concerns constantly throughout every day, but no one is speaking for the silent majority. The Commissioners of Piscataquis County have chosen to give a voice of protest for that silent majority that they represent and they will not be deterred nor will they rescind The Piscataquis Resolution.

Commander in Thief

Joe Biden's OK debate against a weak rival shouldn't be confused for a  stellar performance

Written by Ellen Elliott,  Dover-Foxcroft, Maine

My father and seven of my uncles fought in WWII. One, as a naval fighter pilot, another on the aircraft carrier, Yorktown, one, in the trenches at Normandy, another as a doctor on a tanker carrying petroleum to Africa and Europe, and my dad on a Coast Guard cutter in the South Pacific. They all came home. 

At the beginning of each school day when we were growing up, my siblings and I could stand with our teachers and classmates to pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,  “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” 

But the generation that fought for freedom in Europe, in North Africa, and in the Pacific theater is almost gone. Mercifully, it has been spared this day in America. The nation that was a beacon of liberty and justice is losing its own freedom. Not from outside forces but from within. It will have no shore for the oppressed, no shore for those seeking asylum from religious and political persecution, from death camps and civil wars for we may soon have these here. 

The federal presidential election, the core ingredient of a democracy,  has been compromised to the point of a fraudulence never witnessed in 244 years of our republic. Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, took full responsibility for this fraudulence himself when on October 24, 2020, two weeks before the election, he announced, “We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics. “ Biden did not need to campaign or choose a vice president until two months before the election.  He had his victory already “sewn up!”

To this, the television, internet, radio and newspaper media have employed a censorship and falsehood akin to what was used in Germany to bring the Nazis to power. This tactic was also effectively used in Russia to bring The Great Purge under Stalin. What we see playing out before our eyes is what Germany and Russia and most recently, Venezuela,  experienced to their nation’s downfall.  

The news congratulates voters for electing Biden and spouts Trump’s loss. No, the people did not elect Biden and Trump did not lose. Biden elected Biden. 

“Will Trump run again in 2024?”  This question is worthless: if the massive abuse in the electoral process of the November 3rd election is not addressed before January 20th, there will be no 2024 election. Our right to a valid vote count will have been shredded in the voting machine of a rigged election. 

How could a thief who stole millions of votes from American citizens and blatantly announced his theft, put his hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America?  He will not be our legitimate president. He will be our “Commander-in-Thief.”
