Historian Robert Zimmerman explains what the now-worldwide freedom protests are really about by taking us on a look back through the past two years and all the lies – not honest mistakes, but lies – that politicians and health officials told the public in order to exploit the COVID-19 virus to increase their own power and take away people's freedom.

In short, they’re not just protests to demand an end to draconian COVID measures, or even just to demand the people’s freedoms and rights back, but a demand to stop the lies and bring back government that the people can trust. The problem, of course, is that once a public official squanders the public trust, it’s nearly impossible to earn it back. Usually, that’s dealt with by replacing the individuals at the polls, but in this case, they’ve also managed to destroy public trust in the system itself and even in the elections. It’s going to take an overwhelming turnout at the polls to ensure the public trusts the results, and then the winners are going to have to clean house from top to bottom.

That’s why I wrote before that earning back the public’s trust is going to be a Herculean task, specifically referring to Hercules having to clean out the Augean Stables. So much manure had built up that Hercules had to divert a river to flush it all away. We might have to do that with the Potomac.

    It seems to me that both sides are guilty of not listening to "We The People" and putting in place policies that brought America down, spied on Americans, and also encouraged the corruption of the NSA, CIA, and the FBI. There is no agency that has not been touched by the evil unleashed by both sides. Trump was elected by the majority of the People. It is ok for us to sacrafice our lives and that of our families to stand up and defend All Americans, but when we stand up and call you out for your fear mongering, because you got caught with your hand in the cookie jar . Thats your own fault. The Joint Chiefs of Staff put their loyalty in the toilet and had the gall to kiss the ass of taliban,while spilling the blood of our soldiers because they betrayed their oath to America.
