The House of Representatives in North Dakota has voted to make mandates on wearing face masks illegal.
The billwas sponsored by Rep. Jeff Hoverson wholabelledthe mask mandate instituted by the State governor last year as “diabolical silliness,” adding that “Our state is not a prison camp.”
The legislation outlines that “A state or local elected official, the state, or a political subdivision of the state may not mandate an individual in this state use a face mask, face shield, or other face covering.”
It also “prohibits making use of a face mask, shield, or covering a condition for entry, education, employment, or services.”
The bill also notes that “If a state or local elected official, the state, or a political subdivision of the state recommends an individual in this state use…
The tactic of emotional manipulation is to disable rational thought – you don’t want people to be logical, empirical and clear headed in thinking about the situation, you wish to sabotage rational processes to swing your “argument” on emotion.
It cleverly puts the recipient on the back foot who rejects this method making them look callous and unfeeling.
Emotional manipulation used this way is cynical and dishonest, and anyone using these methods demands serious scrutiny as to their agenda. They have already raised a huge question about their own morality.

A British authorhas noted thatwhile covid infections and deaths have declined sharply in most countries since the beginning of the year, countries with some of the highest vaccination rates have seen much slower declines or, in some cases, even increases in infections and deaths. Examples include Israel, Gibraltar, the Seychelles, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Bahrein, Serbia, Chile, Malta, and Monaco (see cumulative chart above; the curves should have leveled off).
In the best case, this correlation is simply coincidental. In the worst case, vaccines might, theoretically, have something to do with it. But there is a third possible explanation: the process of mass vaccination – with millions of high-risk people visiting vaccination centers, or being visited by mobile vaccination teams, e.g. in nursing homes…
There are lies, damned lies, Brexit lies, unemployment lies, inflation lies, Biden lies, Boris lies – and fact checkers. Day in, day out, everyone’s at it – so IABATO remains The Slog’s rallying cry: It’s All Bollocks And That’s Official. “Top” People used to cross their fingers in hope. Today, they cross every red line of decency in the pursuit of totalitarian power.
I really don’t know why anyone is remotely surprised that Frau von der Leyen of the European Bunion has been caught heading up a Brussels spoiling operation to bribe finance houses to quit the City of London. It’s merely the shellfish episode on a bigger scale. This week, sources in Paris revealed to me that the reason French expats like me can no longer have UK driving licences converted to French ones is that the Minister concerned hasn’t signed the ratification required for the process…
A petition opposing the introduction of vaccine passports in the UK has been signed by more than 200,000 people at time of writing, meaning it will likely be debated by parliament.
The petition on the government and parliament website states “We want the Government to commit to not rolling out any e-vaccination status/immunity passport to the British public.”
It continues, “Such passports could be used to restrict the rights of people who have refused a Covid-19 vaccine, which would be unacceptable.”
The petition further points out that vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi MP has previously denied that there are any plans to introduce vaccine passports.
“The Government must be completely clear to the public about the use of vaccine passports & their intentions, which will undoubtedly affect societal cohesion & effect the economic recovery of Great Britain this year & into…
The boldness with which the media lies about the source of social problems caused by the government is truly shocking. The countless social ills that have arisen from public policies that are allegedly aimed at controlling coronavirus have been brazenly attributed to a virus by the media. Every single problem that lockdowns have created — widespread unemployment, mental health crises, crushing social isolation — there are too many to mention, has been dishonestly reported by the media as emanating from the Wuhan virus itself.
News articles state that these problems are from “coronavirus,” “COVID-19,” or the “pandemic” in an effort to hide the fact that they are a result of government policy. …
Government policies which prevent people from living and working normally have put people out of work. Children are not out of school because they are sick at home with COVID. They are out of school because the government has closed all the schools. Domestic abuse and relationship problems have not skyrocketed because family members are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms….
Psychological manipulation is a type of social influence that aims to change the behavior or perception of others through indirect, deceptive, or underhanded tactics. By advancing the interests of the manipulator, often at another’s expense, such methods could be considered exploitative and devious.
