EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): Here is AB Elpidophoros’ chance to show he has ANY traits of a real leader! We are not asking him to do what Martin Luther King did and start a march for human rights at a time when it was very risky. Even supporting MLK’s fight for human rights in the 1960s took real courage that only a born leader, like Iakovos, could show; On the contrary, supporting the communist thugs of BLM in 2020 was an act of subordination to “deep state” orders and a sign that someone is a puppet…
Now Elpidophoros has a real chance to show true leadership and recognize what ALL the faithful know: that following the CDC’s new guidelines and wearing a mask (and particularly forcing schoolchildren to wear masks the whole next academic year) is absolutely reprehensible and shows a lust for power and a need for control over human lives rarely seen before… Instead of limiting vaccinations to those willing and promoting them to the elderly and most vulnerable, instead of making medicines (monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, etc) easily available, the establishment continues on its failed path…
A real leader has to be able to see a little beyond his own nose… AB Elpidophoros and anyone around him should see what is coming… What is coming is a huge revolt – especially from parents but from all true Christians – against the attacks on our most basic freedoms: masks, forced vaccinations, social distancing, and lockdowns.
The CDC mask reversal is a big sign of panic. The establishment all over the world is panicking because their policies have failed. Macron, Mitsotakis, Boris Johnson are faced with huge demonstrations daily. Angela Merkel does not dare force vaccinations!! In Australia, people have flooded the streets and the government is scared! The same will happen here in America – a country which is divided and half of it already lives freely, while the other half is ready to revolt against the loss of freedom! Take a look in California where the “establishment Governor” Gavin Newsom is a walking corpse! Take a look in NY where the failed governor Andrew Cuomo’s popularity is plummeting and his political career is over! Do you want to have the same fate as Newsom and Cuomo?
Make no mistake AB Elpidophoros: THIS WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE. You have a real chance to reverse course and prove that you can go against the powerful, to prove that you can be part of the future…The overwhelming majority of the faithful are against these attacks on our freedoms. It’s the role of the Church’s leader to express these feelings.
You will have no future in America or anywhere if you fail to show leadership this time!… You cannot go against the opinions of at least 80% of the faithful in such a critical matter and expect to continue to pose like their leader!..
P.S. What can you do practically? 1) Ask the faithful to do the right thing and avoid church services and events when they are feeling sick. 2) Encourage those willing to wear masks (or even “helmets” if they wish!) to do so – nobody is discriminating against them. 3) Encourage all the faithful to have ample supplies of all medicines available. 4) During the winter months when virus diseases spread easily, you can even go as far as asking parish councils to check the temperatures of all those attending services. But in terms of everything else guide all Churches to go back to normalcy! Enough is enough!

The CDC’s ‘Mask Reversal’ is Bull**** and Everybody Knows It!..
By Buck Sexton
Mask mania is making a comeback, as predicted.
Democrats’ favorite cloth fetish mass hysteria was on a short hiatus while they tried to induce every person in America over the age of 12 to get a vaccine shot this past spring.
Fauci, Walensky– all the top lab coat tyrants were promising that vaccines would be the end of the pandemic. So we got to 160 million Americans vaccinated- plus there’s at least 100 million of us who have natural immunity from infection- and do we get our basic freedom back? Nope, now they are trying to roll it back.
Somehow “the Science!” has changed dramatically- again- in the blink of an eye, right when the Biden White House wants it to. So convenient!
The CDC has changed the mask “recommendations” even for the vaccinated. Biden and his team are ordering you to mask up in COVID hot zones, peasants. I’m sure health authorities will be checking the stats daily to see what qualifies. Such idiocy is almost impressive.
Rationality be damned, the CDC is also going to make your kids mask up all day, every day in class for the 2021-2022 school year. Aren’t the teachers all vaccinated, you might ask? That’s your first mistake. If Dr. Fauci is going to keep you safe from COVID, you ask no questions. Those are the rules.
What really changed? Over the last 14 days, nationwide deaths are up 6% from COVID, and holding steady at under 300 a day, in a country of over 330 million. New York City currently has a couple of hundred people in the hospital- total- with COVID. Los Angeles has 9 per 100,000 residents hospitalized with the disease.
If you think those are pandemic numbers that justify mask mandates, you should wear a helmet every time you get into a car and take baths with a snorkel.
Enough is enough. It’s time for mass noncompliance wherever needed.
The answer to mask mandates is for every rational person to treat the rules like Democrats treat our southern border: Pretend to agree, then totally nullify the system with blatant, widespread refusal to enforce anything.
Make everyone everywhere a mask mandate exists tell you to mask up. Force them to force you. See if they have the guts, make them demand it of you. Don’t let the neurotics and power-mad authoritarians assume you’re with them.
And remember: the true red pill moment here is not in recognizing that the Democrats’ new mandatory vaccine and mask reversal policies are a grotesque overreach rooted in hysteria and lust for power-
it’s in realizing that the insanity of covid authoritarianism that is so obvious now has been there all along.
