On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Omnibus Appropriations and Coronavirus Relief Act, which combined the 2021 Omnibus appropriations bill as well as the $900 billion supplemental coronavirus bill. Snuck into this bill was the “COVID–19 Consumer Protection Act”. According to the legislation the purpose of the CPA is To prohibit deceptive acts or practices in connection with public health emergencies resulting from COVID–19. This Act may be cited as the “COVID–19 Consumer Protection Act”.
The Senate voted 92-6 for the bill. These 6 Republican Senators voted against the bill, and as far as I am concerned, these are the only 6 worth keeping in the Senate. Here are the 6 Republicans who appear to have at least part of their spine still intact: Sens. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Mike Lee, R-Utah, Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Rick Scott, R-Fla.
The Covid-19 Consumer Protection Act is a very short bill, introduced into the House and Senate on December 20 and added to the Appropriations Bill on December 21, and signed into law by President Trump on December 27, 2020.
What’s the big deal? What’s wrong with a Consumer Protection Act? As usual with the government, the purpose of the bill and the name of the bill have nothing to do with each other. The purpose of the bill is to give unConstitutional powers to the Executive branch for as long as the government continues to declare that Covid-19 is a public health emergency.
For the duration of a public health emergency declared pursuant to section 319 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 247d) as a result of confirmed cases of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID–19), including any renewal thereof, it shall be unlawful for any person, partnership, or corporation to engage in a deceptive act or practice in or affecting commerce in violation of section 5(a) of the Federal Trade Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 45(a)) that is associated with— (1) the treatment, cure, prevention, mitigation, or diagnosis of COVID–19; or (2) a government benefit related to COVID–19.
I subscribe to Dr. Mercola’s natural health newsletter and this morning’s newsletter had a starting headline – Personal Threats Force Me to Remove MANY COVID-19 Articles. I have refused to succumb to the pharmaceutical thugs and their relentless attacks until now, however nonlegal threats have now become very personal and intensified to the point I can no longer preserve the information and research I’ve provided you thus far.
Some declare Dr. Mercola to be radical, a scam artist, someone who deals in half-truths, etc. Like any doctor, I am going to do my own research before I swallow the pills they recommend I take. I find his articles to be educational and on the whole, reliable.
Why I’m Removing All Articles Related to Vitamins D, C, Zinc and COVID-19
Over the past year, I’ve been researching and writing as much as I can to help you take control of your health, as fearmongering media and corrupt politicians have destroyed lives and livelihoods to establish global control of the world’s population, using the COVID-19 pandemic as their justification
Through it all, I have refused to succumb to these relentless attacks. I have been confident and willing to defend myself in the court of law
Unfortunately, threats have now become very personal and have intensified to the point I can no longer preserve much of the information and research I’ve provided to you thus far. So, effective immediately, much of the information on my website will be permanently removed
He hasn’t hesitated to call out Bill Gates and his Foundation, WHO, CDC, FDA, Fauci, the pharmacy companies, etc. I would call him a cautious vaxer, not an antivaxer. But with one of the largest, if not the largest, natural health sites on the web, the powers that be are not going to allow him to continue challenging them on Covid-19.
Mercola is not the only doctor they are going after. And so what if you have published a study confirming what you are saying. If it doesn’t conform to government policy, the government can use this bill to come after you. I’m looking forward to the Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care briefing this Wednesday. They have been working with doctors in India trying to get them to use Ivermectin for the current wave of Covid-19 sweeping across India.
Here’s the Bill. I would suggest you let your Congressman and Senators know what you think of them passing a bill I’m sure they never even read. It seems so innocent, but when they use it to stop doctors from recommending therapies such as zinc and vitamin D, there is some hidden purpose of the bill. Just why is it the government wants every American vaccinated against Covid-19? What is their real agenda?
The uniparty is on board, so we really need to focus on the 2022 election and replace as many Congressmen and Senators as we can – both Democrats and Republicans. The number 1 requirement has to be they will 100% support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The Covid-19 Consumer Protection Act is just one of several unConstitutional acts of our government. This recent interview of Naomi Wolf by Mark Stein is a call to action I hope you all hear.
