Does anyone else remember when we were told that it was only going to be 15 days to slow the spread? I’m not going to lie it was a super weird experience for myself. Last March I was way sicker than I ever remember being for a long time in my life. Now, I have no idea if it was Wu-Flu or not, and I never went in to get tested because the virus was still only going on in the coasts as well as in China. My wife was equally as ill the week before me, and sure enough, as soon as she got better I got hit with whatever it was like a ton of bricks. As soon as I started coughing my wife threw me in our spare bedroom where I slept for what seemed like an eternity, sleeping from sun up to sun down for almost a solid two weeks. Then the stupid happened, you know our sound guy Huey? Well, he texted me while I was starting to recover asking me if I needed anything from the store because they are getting absolutely wiped out. As I drove his way to the store, I got a phone call from my boss at the time stating that I’ll be working from home till this all blows over. I just woke up in a nightmare, “What in the world is going on?!” I got to the store and it was absolutely packed, I loaded up with as many dried goods and meat that I could fit in my pantry and freezer. All the toilet paper was practically gone, It was like I woke up to some sort of third world country where the bread lines ran out of bread.
So, after getting back home, I had a moment to gather my thoughts, and do some reading up on what in the world I just woke up to, and my conclusion has changed a little since then, but not enough to be noteworthy. This virus was nothing more than just another over hyped flu. If the media would have just chilled out and told people to take some minor precautions, then I wouldn’t have had to beat an old lady with a stick to get my hands on some precious toilet paper. It was the start of a government takeover like we have never seen before within America. There was a reason for government officials to create a mass panic among the people. They used a disease that I believe was created by China to reset the markets and to analyze how the world reacted to a biological attack. The Left was not about to let a tragedy go to waste and disappoint their Chinese overlords.
Due to the lack of information at hand and the mass hysteria, the borders were closed, and we were told to quarantine for 15 days to help slow the spread. It was all about ensuring the hospitals wouldn’t be overran with patience coming down with the virus, as well as running out of ventilators. We were told by Fauci not to wear masks and that they were useless and we should save them for the medical professionals that needed them. I can’t really blame anyone at this point, the virus was so new, and the information coming in was so vast and contradicting due to how young it was.
What got me going though, was that this “lock-down” stretched past the 15 day point, way past the 15 day point. We were told to remain in our homes, when we were starting to understand that the fatality rate wasn’t all that high, and that herd immunity was on the table as a very viable option. Schools remained closed even though children being affected by this virus was so absolutely minimal it was almost zero. This turned into nothing more than the government attempting to see how much power they could take from the American people out of fear.
Men and women lost their jobs, their livelihoods, their purpose, leading to suicide rates skyrocketing as people lost the ability to take care of their families. The saddest part of all this is that children began to kill themselves more and more after being isolated from the world and away from the schools and their friends. We began to dehumanize one another by wearing the oh so sacred masks that Fauci now deemed life altering in public. We began treating one another as infectious germ bags rather than the friendly neighbor down the street. If you didn’t wear a mask, you were an outcast ripe for the picking by the leftist mob, waiting eagerly to sink their claws into the next victim while drooling for acceptance from their “woke” brothers and sisters. The masks became not a symbol of help, but as a symbol of obedience to your government masters, and you will submit or you will not eat. So the story goes in some places.
It’s now been over a year since we locked down, and it’s way past time to say enough is enough. A vaccine has come to light faster than ever recorded in history thanks to “Operation Warp Speed” from the Trump administration. Those most at risk to the virus now have the ability to lower their chances of contracting Wu-Flu dramatically. Myself being young and a bit skeptical of the vaccine will be totally fine contracting the Kung Flu, and fighting it off, if I haven’t already. The fact of the matter is, it’s time to get back to normal, we have nothing to be afraid of anymore. The more masks Fauci tells you to wear, the longer you have to quarantine after taking the vaccine, the longer you have to remain locked up inside your home is nothing more than a political ploy to force you to bow before your political masters. Enough is enough, we are social creatures meant for one another company, the divide this virus has caused has done nothing more but please China. It’s time that We The People take back our country and remind our political leaders that they work for us. We do not sacrifice our freedoms for someones false sense of safety, no, instead we take our freedoms and we push forward. We allow the innovation of our brothers and sisters to develop new vaccines and cures unhindered, we allow the creative minds of America to prosper, and the sweat and blood to flow from our working class so they may earn for their families with pride, knowing that they are the reason we live in warm sheltered homes. My fellow Americans, I plead with you to remember that we are not the descendants of fearful men.
Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next.
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles, it has now expanded into a podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
