6:35 Justin Hart, his new book GONE VIRAL, www.GoneViralBook.com
GONE VIRAL EXPOSES THE GRAVE CONSEQUENCES OF
FAILED COVID-19 POLICIES THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS
TRYING TO COVER UP
Justin Hart shares this comprehensive guide on the unsuccessful measures the government
put in place for COVID-19 and reveals extensive data and the real truth leading Americans to
a freer future
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Everything we knew about COVID-19 was
wrong. Test scores in math and reading have plummeted to a thirty-year
low due to isolation and lockdowns, the effectiveness of vaccines and
boosters are questionable yet they are still rolling out, and now Fauci is
retiring and the American people are left with uncertainty and unanswered
questions. What happened in these last two and a half years?
Gone Viral: How Covid Drove the World Insane by Justin Hart
(releases October 11, 2022) is a point-by-point breakdown that
thoroughly and clearly reveals the answers to the questions we all have.
Hart explains how COVID-19 uncovered a decaying underbelly of
confusion, panic, and fear-mongering by those in power in our American
government and justice systems. Americans are suffering the grave
consequences of these failed policies, and the government, media, and
left-wing activists are trying to cover this all up.
Justin Hart catalogs and refutes each issue that the American people faced during COVID-19 and
reveals truths including:
- Why Americans have no reason to blindly “Trust the Science” just because government
bureaucrats say so
- How the data proves the ineffectiveness of masks and social distancing
- The statistics that prove there has been a severe loss in educational progress and mental
health quality of children
- How and why unchecked and undisputed government power grabs occurred
Esteemed data analyst to presidential candidates, governors, and businesses, Justin Hart writes
Gone Viral: How Covid Drove the World Insane to diagnose the societal destruction that the
massive over response to the COVID virus has wreaked—and explain what can be done to stop the
madness. This long-awaited release gives Americans everything they need to know in one piece of
data-driven work. Giving both personal narrative examples as well as clearly conveyed statistics, this
is an essential guide that relates to every reader and brings the world back to rationality and freedom.

8:10 Dr. Merrill Matthews, resident scholar at the Institute For Policy Innovation – www.IPI.org and he says in his latest policy byte that President Biden’s latest idea will make the energy markets even worse:
Biden’s Effort to Make the Energy Shortage Even Worse
If President Joe Biden were looking for a way to exacerbate the energy shortages facing the United States and our allies, he’s found it: imposing an export ban on U.S crude oil and/or refined products (e.g., gasoline or diesel).
Biden’s flirting with an oil export ban is not—we repeat, IS NOT—driven by good policy or economics. It’s driven solely by politics. He’s doing everything he can to minimize likely Democratic loses in the upcoming midterm elections. But such efforts are completely counterproductive.
First, the way to promote the increased production of a product or service, any product or service, is to ensure access to the broadest market possible. With respect to oil and natural gas, that means a global market, which means exports.
Access to the broadest market means there will be demand for a company’s products. Even if there is a decline in demand in the domestic market, other markets may be able to pick up the slack.
Second, companies need policy and regulatory stability. Oil and gas companies need to know that if they invest the millions of dollars it takes to ramp up production—i.e., drill more wells, build more pipelines, expand refining capacity, etc.—the administration won’t flip-flop in the next few months or years. And yet no oil or gas company has that assurance.
The fact is the Biden administration has embraced the most chaotic energy policies of any U.S. administration in modern history. Does anyone know what the Biden energy policy is?
We know he’s willing to throw billions of taxpayer dollars at renewable energy companies. But what’s the plan right now? Oil and gas companies have every reason to be skeptical of this administration and respond accordingly.
Third, Biden needs to abandon his counterproductive proposals. For example, he’s chided oil and gas companies for not producing more when prices were at record highs. But in the next breath he’s threatened to impose a windfall profits tax on oil and gas companies to take away those very profits he says should be driving them to produce more.
Finally, energy is a global market. Production changes, such as OPEC+’s recent announcement to cut oil production by 2 million barrels a day, have global ripple effects. A wise and prudent president would have recognized that fact and (1) avoided vilifying and alienating Saudi Arabia, which has been a long and generally reliable ally, and (2) ensured that U.S. oil and gas companies had the freedom and political support they need to increase production. He’s done just the opposite.
In 2019, former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates observed, “I think he’s [Biden] been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Add energy policy to that list.

Here’s today’s “Where Past Meets Present”:
By Dennis Powers
During the 1850s, gold-seeking miners didn’t find gold in what’s now Ashland; the best mining was located northward (Gold Hill and Jacksonville) and southward (Yreka). Abel Helman and Eber Emery were the smart ones: They decided it was easier and more profitable to supply the miners with what they needed. Staking a claim on a creek, the men built a saw and flour mill in 1854. Named after Ashland County, Ohio–the original home of Abel Helman–the site was named Ashland Mills, then later as Ashland Creek and Ashland.
Helman one year later donated twelve building sites around the mill to create a central business district. Merchants soon constructed wooden buildings, ranging from a blacksmith shop and livery to a meat market and cabinet work. The location became a gathering spot known as the “Plaza,” which continues today. The settlement had an advantage as the main wagon trail to Jacksonville passed through, as did the stagecoach line, the Oregon-California wagon trail over the nearby Siskiyou Mountains, and as the later district headquarters in the mid-1880s for the Oregon & California Railroad.
In addition to Abel Helman, other leaders appeared as John McCall. In 1852, the 27-year-old McCall settled in Jackson County on a mining claim along Jackson Creek. After two rough winters, “subsisting a good portion of his time on venison alone,” he bought an interest in the Ashland Flour Mill. After the Civil War, he became Ashland’s mayor in 1886, previously elected as a state legislator. His business interests flourished to include owning the Ashland Flour Mill, Ashland Woolen Mill, and the McCall Mercantile on Ashland Plaza. McCall ran the newspaper, the “Ashland Tidings,” and helped found the Ashland College and Normal School in 1872, which later became Southern Oregon University.
Hosting Southern Oregon’s annual Chautauqua festival, the town in the 1890s became a cultural center for the region. Presenting programs in what’s now Lithia Park in politics, art, literature, music, and other subjects for several days during the mid-summer, this nationwide program of lectures, seminars, and entertainment started in New York as the New York Chautauqua Assembly. Well-known personalities as Susan B. Anthony, William Jennings Bryan, and John Phillip Sousa were among those over the next two decades who came here to lecture or perform.
Despite this, Medford’s orchard boom in the early 1900s (and its strong downtown building spree starting in 1909) brought it to Valley prominence; Jacksonville had greatly tapered off when the railroad in the mid-1880s bypassed it for Medford. Ashland then developed what became the 93-acre, exquisite Lithia Park in the city’s heart in the early 1900s. Its mineral springs with promoted medicinal properties also brought in the tourists.
Despite its cultural and location significance, Ashland suffered economically over the years. The Southern Pacific Railroad’s opening of its “Natron Cut-off” from California to Eugene, by-passed the town and its passenger rail traffic dropped. After the Great Depression’s financial woes, even World War II’s economic impact lessened afterwards as the timber industry with its mills and employment stagnated—even in Ashland.
Its transition to a tourist destination was greatly helped by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University. It took Elmo Stevenson and Angus Bowmer to save the town. Stevenson was hired in 1946 to actually close the campus if he couldn’t increase enrollment; however, he thought that the setting was unique and began a passionate goal to save it. He was successful. Southern Oregon University now has some 300 faculty members with 6,000 students and its numerous buildings are spread over 175 acres.
While staring at the old Chautauqua ruins in Ashland’s Lithia Park, Angus Bowmer had an idea on producing a Shakespearean work there. By 1935, his idea had caught on with other residents and with volunteers, city, and state help, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival began with a two-play production on July 2, 1935. From there, the festival has grown to an annual attendance of 400,000-plus with over 700 performances.
Ashland is home to 20,000 residents today. Although it isn’t the county seat, it has become a destination tourist and retirement town. With additional cultural activities from the Ashland Independent Film Festival to the Oregon Cabaret, the former mill first named on Mill Creek has come a long way.

Kate Brown’s Parting Gift
By John A. Charles, Jr.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is accepting public comments on proposed regulations that would ban the sale of new gasoline or diesel-powered cars and light trucks after 2034. The only new cars available would be electric vehicles (EVs).
These regulations were first adopted by the state of California on August 25. Now Kate Brown wants Oregonians to live under them as well.
There are many flaws in the proposed rules. First, the average cost of an EV last year was $66,000. Most people won’t be able to afford one.
Second, EVs need regular charging. The Oregon charging network barely exists, especially for apartment dwellers. This will make EVs inconvenient for most drivers.
Third, the primary reason for the regulation is to reduce “greenhouse gases” in Oregon, but the commercial electricity grid is powered mostly by fossil fuels and will be for decades. Shifting from internal combustion engines to electric motors will simply move vehicle-related emissions from cities to the countryside.
The rules will also prove to be unenforceable. While the government can require manufacturers to offer EVs for sale, it cannot force consumers to buy them. Traditional cars will continue to be available, either as used vehicles sold in Oregon, or new vehicles purchased by Oregonians from another state.
This proposal, which DEQ plans to adopt in December, is now being circulated for public comment. Voters should express their concerns to DEQ by email at the following address: Levzev2022@deq.oregon.gov. Comments will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21.

By Dennis Powers
This town was so named because two pioneer wagon trails crossed at where it now exists. One of the roads ran north and south, linking the Willamette Valley with Southern Oregon, and the other led from Butte Falls and Sams Valley to Jacksonville, which was then the county seat. Until the railroad came through in the 1880s, the wagon trains and stagecoaches made their slow way over muddy paths during the rains, but that were as hard as cement under a hot summer’s sun.
Isaac Constant was a pioneer who settled there in 1852, and he is credited with naming the hub “Central Point,” as an appropriate observation. The Magruder brothers followed in building a store there, and when the post office was established in the spring of 1872, the town became officially known as Central Point. The coming of the railroad cemented its permanence.
When the townsfolks heard that the California & Oregon Railroad would bypass it, enterprising landowners made a deal. They agreed to give a right-of-way with the railroad to build its tracks over their land. In return, these owners relocated Central Point there, and the township flourished with the station depot in the middle of its main street.
Sharing its southern border with Medford, it incorporated as a city in 1889. Over time, Central Point followed the regional ups-and-downs as Southern Oregon did: part of the 1900’s boom and bust of orchards, followed by the “Roaring Twenties,” and then the Great Depression.
In an enterprising move, farmers in the Valley invested $10 each in 1934 to form a cooperative. By joining together, they could pool their produce for better prices, secure a lower price for livestock feed, and purchase needed equipment, supplies, and feed at bulk prices. Today and decades later, the Grange Co-op has grown into a multi-million dollar business in different locations. Rising 135 feet above Central Point, its grain elevator is an imposing landmark that is the tallest manmade structure in Southern Oregon.
The Jackson County Expo also moved to its present 200-acre location in Central Point. It offers a wide range of activities from the annual Jackson County Fair, rodeos, music events, and Harvest Fair to the Hot Air Balloon Festival, Christmas fairs, and other activities throughout the year.
As streets and highways replaced the old wagon roads, the town still retained its central location—and it’s now a hub for tourists and residents alike, both here and over the busy I-5 corridor.
