Unpopular Opinions with Tommy Caldwell: Politics for the People

By Tommy Caldwell
Politics used to be for insiders, but citizens have taken a peek behind the curtain of global bureaucracy in the wake of the pandemic. We elect politicians to serve the people's best interests, but it is evident our 'leaders' serve their interests instead. Let's change the system by getting involved in the conversation and returning the power to the people.

#6- What is happening with Boosted Ontario Citizens?
When you're expected to take a vaccine in order to retain your freedom of mobility, you have every right to ask questions about the public facing data. Public conversation is what holds public health and other government organizations to account. It's not only your right, it is your societal duty to force these conversations to the top of the news cycle. I am not making claims on the data. I am not qualified to do so. But please, Ontario Public Health Officials: explain to me why boosted populations are by far more likely to contract COVID-19 over the past 30 days.

#4- Trudeau drops emergency power, but continues to push for ultimate authority
Trudeau remains the ultimate democratic hypocrite as he silently seeks greater authority while using an overseas war as cover. The CDC continues to bury meaningful data while CV19 hysteria rolls on.

#3- Trust Us. It's for your own good.
The Emergencies Act has passed the floor and will likely clear senate, Member's of Parliament can blatantly lie as long as it serves the preferred narrative, and Bill C-11 and Digital ID's are on the Horizon. My intro got cut off, but today I announced my official candidacy for Member of Provincial Parliament.

#1- Where's the Emergency?
Justin Trudeau has invoked Federal Emergency Powers under the justification of dangerous and illegal protests. Has he met the criteria? Is he acting as a dictator? Where's the emergency? *note, I keep calling Klaus Schwab Charles Schwab out of habit in connection with the WEF. Apologies, Chuck.

Important Case, Hospitalization, and ICU data Updates
You are more likely to be infected with COVID if you are Vaccinated. The rate of hospitalization, while still modestly higher in unvaccinated individuals when controlled for demographic, has accelerated drastically in vaccinated people. While you are still significantly more likely to end up in the ICU if unvaccinated, the rate of ICU admission increase for vaccinated has almost doubled the rate of unvaccinated admissions. Lastly, COVID-related ICU and hospital admissions are moving in lockstep with the increased positive testing rate. Could a significant portion of the hospital rate increase be due to rises in incidental testing? Yes, some variables could be at play here (i.e. vaccinated out and about more, unvaccinated having natural immunity etc.). But those are assumptions, and while relevant, they aren't measurable facts. These are important data points to note as places like Quebec are now fining unvaccinated citizens and our Prime Minister refers to over 4 million Canadians as racist and misogynistic. It isn't OK to treat fellow citizens like this under any circumstance, let alone when the data is murky at best and public health officials worldwide are being caught in brazen lies.

COVID-19 Lies That Are Provably False
Ontario is entering lockdown #4, and both public health, the government, and special interest groups are using fear campaigns and fudged data to justify the measures. Here I break down four provable lies we were collectively told that should upset you and lead you to rethink the validity of lockdowns. From false hospitalization records to scaring parents into fearing COVID-19 more than the flu when it comes to kids, I walk you through the Federal and Provincial Governments' own data.

Misleading stats, vaccination vs natural immunity, and saving our children
My intention in this recording is not to persuade anyone. I am merely presenting the current data as it stands without the politics, public health, and media biases that should be obvious to us all by now. The data and research can change, but as it stands right now, this is my best interpretation of what is happening with vaccination status and naturally acquired immunity. I have also added my personal opinion on these matters which should not be taken as fact. I believe I have done a good job of separating the data from my thoughts on the data. I am open to being wrong and/or misunderstanding the data, so as long as you are cordial I encourage you to push back on what I present here.

Excessive Hand Sanitizing and The Silo of Public Health and Medicine
This is a follow up to my recent post where I shared concern over excessive hand sanitizing in our children. This matter is also a signal to the deeper issue of lack of transparency and discourse in our public health systems. You cannot get to the best strategy by shutting out those who push back against your narrative, and governmental health and medicine has become a silo of like-minded individuals who can't see beyond their narrative. Citizen scientists need to step up and criticize actions taken by our government with reasonable points of view and solid evidence. Debate and dialogue is the only way to better a struggling system. If you are interested in direct study links, you can find them below. They are all from credible sources and show A- the inability to show surface level transmission and B- the potential downside of excessive hand sanitizing in kids. As always I appreciate commentary that goes against my point of view. All I ask is you bring evidence to the conversation, not anecdote. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/more/science-and-research/surface-transmission.html https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32919072/ https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00251-4#ref-CR7 https://www.pharmacytoday.org/article/S1042-0991(17)30602-3/pdf https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32623176/

Why We Need Citizen Scientists
The back-and-forth regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is an emotional, narrative-driven battle between conspiracy theorists and the status quo. Both of these groups are unhelpful. Everyone who puts their best effort toward being informed deserves to publicly share their opinion and be involved in the discussion. Those who prefer to be informed by narrative (on both sides) should go join a reddit subgroup instead. Able citizens need to be interested in reading, viewing the data, and opening up a conversation about what it all means. Suppose the average citizen continues to be educated by social media and traditional news outlets without looking more deeply into the matter. In that case, We will never push public Health to find the best solution. Whether you agree or disagree with the lockdown method, you don't deserve to share your opinion unless you have done your absolute best to understand the data. That means reading reports, testing definitions, and other publicly available information that allows you to form an educated opinion. It doesn't have to be perfect, and none of us have to agree on what it all means- but if we are not willing to step up to the plate and assess this crisis at a ground level, we don't deserve the most favourable outcome.

COVID's Collateral Damage
At what point do the actions taken to prevent a crisis do more harm than the crisis itself? I don't know, but it is time to ask the question with a certain level of seriousness. Mental, emotional, and physical health are being overlooked. Deaths of despair are rising. Obesity is skyrocketing. Small businesses are dying. And kids can't even play outdoor sports, gyms can't guide outdoor exercise, and 30,000 square foot gymnastics clubs can't have 10 kids inside. All while retailers like Costco can have 1500 people in their stores at anytime while making record profits.

Coronavirus- is it time to panic yet?
If you go on social media you'll be told that the COVID-19 outbreak is either going to kill us all, or less deadly than the common cold. What are the chances that it is neither of these things?
