Report | Ramola D | July 5, 2020
In an extended conversation on July 3, 2020, Peggy Hall, a college educator, writer, activist with a professional background in public affairs, journalism, and health, founder of the new organization The Healthy American, and a powerful Internet sensation over the last few weeks with her empowering videos dissecting the COVID order-issuing overreach from varied Governors and Mayors, states unequivocally that what one finds, digging into these orders, is not legitimate authority but tyranny.
While most people look at the Executive Orders and requirements rolling out of Governors’ and Mayors’ offices these days and conclude they need to comply, Peggy Hall has stepped forward with her English-teacher training and sharp eye for legalese to deconstruct these orders and find them seriously wanting. In a very short time, her organization has become a means to help Americans and people worldwide recognize their rights to health freedom and health choice in an age of government overreach and COVID overkill.
In this conversation, Peggy shares what prompted her to rush into the fray of this national and global conversation as she herself experienced being laid-off from her teaching job in a university, and turned her attention within two weeks of the interminable lock-down in March to the language of the law, the nature of the “Orders” being issued by Health Officers and Governors, and the fraudulent impositions of stricture and “requirement” devoid of statutory legal backing which Governors and Mayors are using to subjugate the American populace. In actuality, she explains, the “Orders” are mere Guidance or Guidelines; neither Governors nor Mayors nor health officers have the jurisdictional authority to impose orders of any kind on individuals.
Demonstrating how this fraud is being played out on Americans, Peggy pulls up a few Orders and Guidances, a Guidance from a health officer in Monterey County, California and an Executive Order from the Governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, and takes us through the language of these documents, discussing what the language says and means, what the laws and lawmaking behind them offers, and examining whether the people signing off on these orders and guidelines have the jurisdictional authority to issue such or if they are acting in overreach and extension of their accorded powers, which it turns out, indeed they are.
A key component of the order-writing and demanding appears to be the state of Emergency called for by Governors and called upon by health officers – but it appears, from a deeper look at the state codes and laws, that such Emergencies are actually being unlawfully called upon currently, since most States permit Emergencies to be called only in case of major disaster and only for a very short and finite period of time.
In a sense what is really happening it seems is that Governors and Mayors are playing fast and loose with the law as written and seeking to pull a snow job over the populace by using the language of legalese yet not having anything to back them up. In other words, they can be held liable and sued for misrepresentation of the law, misapplication of the law, and for unlawful presumption of authority and overreach. Several lawsuits are indeed in the works, and in Illinois, as Peggy Hall reports, a judge has ruled that the Governor has been engaging in unlawful order-issuing since April when he issued an emergency which was then extended beyond the 30-day limit.
Only legislators can make law; anything being issued by health officers, Mayors, Governors can only be guidance, not law; states of Emergency cannot be extended indefinitely, and in this case, notes Peggy, the small number of deaths and incidence of illness as well as high recovery rates do not qualify COVID-19 rightfully and lawfully to be classed as an epidemic, pandemic, or warranting of an Emergency.
Peggy Hall also takes a look at information from the CDC, specifically guidelines and recommendations to use facial cloth coverings (the word ‘mask” apparently being eschewed for “cloth covering” now, given all the sinister bank-robber connotations of “mask” maybe) and especially highlights the scientific studies being referred to; CDC offers no links, she notes, to these studies, and lists studies which actually say the findings regarding the efficacy of masks in preventing infection is unknown or negligible; why then are these studies being cited as if they prove the argument for wearing masks?
CDC guidelines regarding children below the age of two being exempt for reasons of possible suffocation also are arbitrary and inexplicable, she points out, because where is it written that kids above the age of two are not in similar danger? The cut-off in age here, like much else about these demands for all to wear masks is frankly, incomprehensible, and like all else, must be questioned.
It all does come down to what people are willing to tolerate, what they will put up with, and when and where they will draw the line, notes Peggy. Masks and distancing while presented as health measures comprise measures of compliance; when will people stop and say No, these measures are absurd, arbitrary, and meaningless?
Given how extreme these measures have become, while their avowed aid is to “help people,” it is clear to many that such attempts to wreak greater control over the populace will only continue and become ever more draconian if people do not step up to repudiate these.
Many doctors, nurses, and virologists have stepped forward to discuss the dangers of wearing masks, the meaninglessness of physical distancing, the nature of viruses as exosomes or expelled matter from cells in case of illness and not infection-bearing carriers in themselves, the strengthening of immunity with nutrition, exercise, and sunshine and not dubious, metal-laden, nanotech-laced vaccines, and the application of Terrain Theory rather than the baseless, fear-churning archaism of Germ Theory to the understanding of infectious illness.
Peggy has created several flyers and hand-out cards based on what she has learned perusing civil laws and statutes and also encourages people to print out their local government’s orders, highlight the exemptions, and take them in to stores to show clerks and managers if questioned regarding mask-wearing, or rather, not doing so.
Peggy reveals that people from all walks of life including lawyers have contacted her, agreeing with her stance, that store-employees accost her in grocery stores complaining that they are having health difficulties wearing the mask for 8 hours, and that she counsels all with advice she has also made available on her website. One of these focuses is OSHA guidelines; it is clear looking at these that retail stores are bypassing them in requiring staff to use masks, and that employees can challenge and resist these unlawful orders.
As with numerous focuses Peggy has made videos on, she has made a highly-viewed OSHA video diving deeper into OSHA strictures, illustrating the dropping of oxygen levels behind a mask with a meter, and the hazards this represents to staff at work as also do flammability issues with masks.
All videos can be found at her Youtube channel and on her website, thehealthyamerican.org. Supported by volunteers, her organization is currently expanding exponentially, and has branched also into providing community forums and connective spaces for people in different parts of he USA and world, by connecting like-minded people keen to protect medical freedom and health-care so they can help and support each other.
All interested in standing up with Peggy Hall and questioning faulty narratives and unlawful edicts in the USA and worldwide are encouraged to visit her website and connect there with others as her ventures get underway.
Many thanks to Peggy Hall for her unstinting dedication to healthcare freedom, everyday freedom, and for the warmth and generosity of her time and attention in this interview!
