Local Amish Community Hosts

Burn & Wound Seminar in Easton

Fort Fairfield Journal November 17, 2021

   The local Amish community in Fort Fairfield and Easton hosted a Burn & Wound Seminar at J&J Mini Barns in Easton on Wednesday, November 10.

   They invited caregivers, John Troyer and John Borntrager to present the John Keim method of burn treatment during the day-long event.

   John Keim created a burn and wound treatment in the 1970s and perfected it over thirty years.   The treatment consists of a proprietary salve called B & W Ointment containing olive oil, comfrey root, aloe vera gel, bees wax, and myrrh, among other natural compounds.  The salve is applied to simple burdock leaves, which grow in abundance in most places in the U.S., which are then applied to the burn or wound helping to heal the skin faster and better than the artificial chemicals and procedures used by establishment western medicine today.

Reflector Telescope “Goliath” Finally In Place

at New Science Center Observatory

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 17, 2021

 

EASTON, Maine—The reflector telescope, affectionately nicknamed “Goliath” has finally been placed in its new home in the new observatory at Francis Malcolm Science Center in Easton.

   The observatory was constructed over the summer of 2021 by Connor St. Peter as part of his Eagle Scout project—one of the most ambitious of this type of project for the Boy Scouts in this area, ever.

   St. Peter said the conclusion of the project is completely liberating.  “It’s amazing that all the stress and worry of the incompletion or postponing of this project is now gone and we can really enjoy [this equipment].  Soon enough, as confirmed by the board of directors who have had a couple viewing sessions so far with Goliath, we’re very excited to have different school programs in Aroostook County and the State of Maine visit this.”

Employees Can Change Their Relationship with their Workplace to ‘Contractor’

 

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 17, 2021

   With the recent rise of National Socialism’s COVID-19 authoritarian mandates from the  likes Maine’s Democrat Governor Janet “Big Sister” Mills and U.S. presidential impersonator, Joe Biden, many people have been arbitrarily cast out of work for refusing to participate in the ongoing COVID-19 gene therapy medical trials which have killed over 17,000 people in the U.S. alone, so far this year.

   Joe Biden’s handlers recently forced the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to mandate the participation in those experimental medical trials to all employers who have more than 100 employees.  A similar mandate was recently dreamt up by Big Sister Mills—with no input from the legislature—which has caused thousands of nurses and other health care workers in Maine to be removed from their job for refusing to participate in those medical trials.

   The short solution for people outside of healthcare is to simply change their relationship with their employer from that of “employee” to “contractor.”  Rather than fill out a W-9 form, it’s as simple as using a 1099 instead and work as a contractor under terms agreed upon by both parties. 

   However, a longer term solution is also available for businesses who don’t want to participate in the deadly and destructive government mandates but still want to be able to provide their products and services.  That solution is in removing the business from operating in the “public” realm—which government has authority to regulate—and moving it into the private realm in the form of a Private Membership Association (PMA).

Emergency Rooms Now Filling Up

With COVID “vaccine” Victims

 

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 17, 2021

   At Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, staff members are struggling to care for patients showing up much sicker than they’ve ever seen.   Patients are lying on a long line of stretchers pushed up against the walls of the hospital’s hallways as the ER’s 72 rooms are already filled.

   Now 11 months into an aggressive campaign to convince people to participate in the experimental COVID-19 gene therapy medical trials the chickens are finally coming home to roost as most of the people being admitted at Sparrow Hospital appear to be suffering chronic side effects of the alleged "vaccines." 

   Doctors and nurses say the severity of illness ranges widely and includes abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions and suicide attempts, among other conditions.

   Two teenagers dropped dead in Pennsylvania and one in California, all from heart attacks, and many others are suffering long term heart conditions after participating in the COVID-19 gene therapy medical trials.  The pharmaceutical companies are legally not responsible for the deaths or medical bills their products cause due to indemnity clauses in their contracts with the government.

   A nurse at a hospital in Ontario, Canada said she's seen an increase in adverse events from the COVID-19 gene therapies but doctors are reluctant to consider them as caused by the experimental drugs.  “A patient came to the emergency department with severe lightheadedness and an episode of chest pain.  They had a hard time standing. I was taking their history and they told me they had recently taken the corona vax.  Of course, there are other possible causes for symptoms, such as mild heart attack or recent dietary change involving severe caloric restriction.  But how do we really know if the vax didn’t precipitate, or act as one (among the confluence of factors) that led to hospital admission?” she said.  “The doctor immediately dismissed the idea that the corona vax could have played any role in the patient’s symptoms. It got me thinking, how much data about possible reactions to the vax are simply not being collected because of the bias of the clinician to ignore them?”

   The nurse, only identified as “Andrea,” told globalresearch.ca, “We’re seeing a surge of patients come to the hospital from the nursing homes after getting vaxed.  These poor folks, in their 80s and 90s with chronic heart and lung disease, can’t handle the metabolic stimulation caused by the COVID vax.  I have to be intellectually honest and say I can’t ascribe direct causation by the vax for their presentation.  It could be a urinary infection or bacterial pneumonia, for example.  But what I find shocking is how, for instance, my recent patient had COVID back in January and survived despite being extremely elderly with severe heart, lung, and kidney conditions.  According to the CDC, immunity for COVID is supposed to last 90 days after infection, yet my patient got vaccinated anyway, well within the window of immunity.  One of my colleagues said, 'Are they literally trying to kill this patient!?'  And yet, the doctor in emergency says, 'I think it’s COVID.'  Doesn’t Occam’s razor apply if the patient is within the window of immunity from COVID, just got vaxed yesterday, and is here today with a severe immune response requiring hospitalization?”

 

 

CDC Shows How They Purposefully Fluff Up the Death Numbers on the “Unvaccinated”

 

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 17, 2021

 

   News organizations are running with a statistic posted on the U.S. CDC’s website that states “unvaccinated” people have an 11.3 times greater risk of dying from COVID-19 disease.  However, what is not pointed out is on that same web page the CDC admits they are only counting a person as “vaccinated” 14 days after receiving the final shot in their manufacturer’s series.1 

   What this means is if a person dies from the side effects of the “vaccine” within fourteen days of receiving it, and tests “positive” for COVID-19 with a quirky and unreliable PCR test, they will be considered “unvaccinated” and counted as an “unvaccinated COVID-19 death.”  Since many people are in fact dying from the experimental gene therapies within fourteen days of receiving the shots, the CDC is intentionally inflating their “unvaccinated” statistics to make things appear worse than they really are.  So far, more than 17,000 people have died from the COVID “vaccines” in the U.S. alone.

CDC Director Issues More Fake Data On Face Masks

 

   U.S. Centers for Disease Control Director, Rochelle Walensky recently made a statement on the CDC’s Twitter account that face masks are “80% effective” at stopping the spread of COVID-19 and continued to encourage everyone to keep wearing them.

   This, despite the fact that her own CDC published a study in May, 2020 which reviewed face mask studies over the past 80 years and found “no significant effect” of cloth and surgical face masks on stopping or slowing the spread of respiratory viruses.1

    A randomized control trial conducted in Denmark in the summer of 2020 in the general public came to the same conclusion as the rate of COVID infection in masked vs. non-masked people was statistically insignificant.2

   Politically motivated bureaucrats in charge of the ongoing train wreck of society are now purposefully spouting false information for purely propaganda purposes while believing they have the monopoly on truth when the only people who now believe the CDC’s current position on face masks are most school board directors and the remaining few in society who continue to watch and believe network television “news.”

Lawyer Explains His Federal Lawsuit Against Governor Mills for Her Unconstitutional and Excessive COVID-19 Response in Maine

 

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, April 7, 2021

 

    Maine Stands Up (MSU) joined with Ohio-based Make America Free Again (MAFA) and attorney Thomas Renz in  filing a federal lawsuit against Governor Mills to challenge Mills’ state of emergency in federal court.  

   MAFA and MSU believe everyone has a right to protect themselves from COVID or any other disease, but do not believe anyone has the right to force others to take similar measures. 

      The 79 page lawsuit, filed by Maine attorney Ron Jenkins, outlines how the US CDC changed the death reporting criteria for COVID-19 to artificially inflate the “COVID-19 Death” numbers by arbitrarily labeling any death as a COVID-19 death so long as the deceased had previously tested positive for the virus with a PCR test at some point in the past.  It was also shown how Maine uses PCR test kits that were excessively sensitive and produced wildly exaggerated “positive” case numbers throughout the year.

This photo, leaked in early October, shows Joe Biden receiving an alleged COVID-19 “booster shot” on a fake White House set constructed on a stage in an auditorium—where all of his “White House” appearances take place.  The left wing news media only showed the close-up photo to give the impression that he’s actually in the White House.  The plants and trees in the windows are just backlit posters—they aren’t even real.  While the set was a staged, fake version of the White House, Biden’s handlers insist the “booster” shot was real...and the government never lies, right?

Former Trump Attorney Sued for Defamation. 

Says "No Reasonable Person" Would have Believed Her

 

Sydney Powell's Sideshow Could Have Been a Covert Psychological Warfare Tactic to Derail Trump Supporters as Part of a Soviet-Style Disinformation Campaign

 

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, April 7, 2021

   Attorney Sydney Powell, who became famous during the post-election presidential election fiasco in November, 2020 by suggesting Dominion Voting machines were compromised, is now being sued by Dominion for libel and slander.  The defense to such a lawsuit is that it's the truth, but Powell's curious answer to the complaint1 is that it was protected political speech which is not actionable. 

   Adam Klasfeld from the online website, www.lawandcrime.com reported on March 22, 2021; “Facing more than $1.3 billion in liabilities over her post-election conspiracy theories, lawyer Sidney Powell told a judge that the defamation lawsuit Dominion Voting Systems filed against her earlier this year should be dismissed because ‘no reasonable person’ would believe that her well-publicized comments about an international plot against former President Donald Trump were ‘statements of fact.’”2

Number of Maine Healthcare Workers Drops By Over 16,000 Since May

 

Maine Policy Institute Requests DHHS Respond to

Discrepancy in Health Care Worker Vaccination Data

 

PORTLAND, ME – Maine Policy Institute analyst Nick Murray released the following statement today after the release of the Health Care Worker COVID-19 Vaccination report for the month of October.

   “The Maine DHHS and CDC’s own data disputes claims it made today in its press release related to the total number of health care workers whose vaccination status has been reported since the agency began collecting these data in May.

    “The release issued today claims the total staff reported by health care facilities fell by only 516 (1%) between May and October. The agency’s own data available on its public dashboard show there are 16,046 fewer workers at these facilities than in May.

    “According to the agency’s data, since July, the last month before Governor Mills announced the mandate for health care workers, the overall workforce reported at facilities impacted by the rule has declined by 19.65%.

    “Since May, there are 1,242 fewer vaccinated workers and 14,804 fewer unvaccinated workers at these facilities. Growth in the state’s vaccination rate for health care workers over the May to October reporting period is entirely a product of shrinking denominators. Thousands of workers have left the workforce at designated health care facilities impacted by the rule, with the largest losses coming in the two months leading up to the enforcement deadline of the vaccine mandate.

    “The explanations provided by the administration related to normal expansion and contraction, reporting rate fluctuations, and seasonal changes in workforce cannot explain this dramatic shift in the overall number of staff reporting vaccination status at these facilities.

    “There is little doubt that the governor’s vaccine mandate is the cause of these irregular losses in staff experienced by designated health care facilities.

    “Maine DHHS and CDC need to answer to the discrepancy in the data reported on their public dashboard and the numbers released to the public in today’s press release.” 

    Maine Policy has been tracking the state’s health care worker vaccination data since it became available in May.

 

BABY DEATH

OAKLAND - On Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at approximately 12:07 p.m. Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit Detectives responded to 26 Oak Street Apt. 2 in Oakland at the request of the Oakland Police Department. 21-year-old Ashley Malloy called 911 to report her 14-month-old child, Karson Malloy was having a medical emergency. The child was transported to Inland hospital in Waterville where he was pronounced dead. After a preliminary investigation, State Police Detectives applied for and were granted a search warrant for the apartment the child and mother lived in.

   Malloy was charged Thursday, November 4, 2021, by MDEA with Class “A” Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W drugs as a result of what was seized at the house. Malloy was arrested Thursday evening and released on unsecured bond.  The street value of the drugs seized was in the neighborhood of $700,000.

   The drugs were turned over to the Maine Drug Enforcement agency while State Police Detectives continue to work with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause of the child’s death.

MURDER INDICTMENT

STANDISH - On Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at approximately 9:48 a.m. the Cumberland County Sherriff’s Office responded to a home at 35 Dow Road in Standish as part of an assault investigation.  Deputies discovered a women identified as 29-year-old Amanda Brown from Standish deceased. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy which determined the cause of death was a gunshot and the manner was a homicide.

   34-year-old Brandon Libby of Standish was arrested without incident Friday afternoon, November 5, 2021 in Hollis by the Maine State Police Tactical Team, Crisis Negotiation Team and the US Marshal’s Maine Violent Offender Task Force.  Libby was picked up on a warrant out of Cumberland County charging him with murder resulting from a Grand Jury indictment on Thursday.  This indictment was related to the death of Amanda Brown in Standish from June of this year.  Brandon and Amanda were domestic partners.  Since June the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit South has received information from the Maine Office of Chief Medical Examiner as well as the Maine State Police Crime Laboratory which was presented to the Grand Jury and led to the charges.

 

DRUG SEIZURE

BANGOR - For the past several months, agents with MDEA’s North Central Task Force in Bangor have been investigating the sale of fentanyl and other illicit street drugs from an apartment building on Bolling Drive in Bangor.

   During this investigation, which included the under-cover purchase of fentanyl from the Bolling Drive apartment, agents were able to identify 31 year old Douglas Morris of Bangor as the suspected source of the drugs coming from the apartment. This location is within 1,000 feet of Griffin Park, an area designated by the City of Bangor as a “Drug Free Safe Zone”. Selling drugs within this area is an aggravating factor to the trafficking offense.

   During the morning of November 4, 2021, agents observed Morris exit the Bolling Drive apartment and leave in a vehicle. This car was subsequently stopped by the Bangor Police Department. Morris, who was wanted on five (5) outstanding warrants, was taken into custody.  Found on Morris at the time of his arrest, was over $15,000 in cash and approximately (2) ounces of suspected fentanyl.

   Following the arrest of Morris, MDEA agents, along with members of the Bangor Police Department, executed a search warrant on the Bolling Drive apartment. Inside the apartment, agents located the apartment owner, 45 year old Shannon Jenkins and a second individual, 48 year old Christopher Harvey of Bangor. Seized during the search was an additional $15,000 in cash, an additional (13) ounces of suspected fentanyl, (7) ounces of methamphetamine, an assortment of (700) suspected counterfeit pills, and a 9 mm semi-auto handgun which was reported stolen in a recent Bangor car burglary. Total street value of the drugs seized is estimated at $90,000.

   As the result of this investigation, Morris, Jenkins and Harvey were all transported to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with Class A, Aggravated Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs. Charges were aggravated due to the weight of drugs seized, the presence of a firearm and the fact that the drugs were alleged to be sold within 1,000 feet of a “drug free safe zone”. Bail was set by a bail commissioner at $50,000 in cash on each of three charged.
