Must Read: DeSantis’ Covid Grand Jury Issues First Report

As it should have, the Grand Jury has worked in secret, which frankly has frustrated a few people. I’ve seen more than a few blackpilled comments whining that it’s all hopeless; it’s going nowhere; we should’ve heard something by now, and so forth.

Well, I am pleased to report that the Grand Jury issued its first interim report yesterday, and you’re going to love it. The report’s conclusion poignantly observed, “It is a sad state of affairs when something as simple as following the science constitutes an act of heresy, but here we are.”

The 30-page (double-spaced) report is required reading for every literate adult who survived the last four years. It’s well-written in plain English and understandable to anyone with a GED equivalent, and even to some people from Portland. The Grand Jury addressed the first two government interventions, lockdowns and mask mandates, and found neither followed the science, despite terrific and ultimately terrible costs. Later reports will cover vaccines.

Since last June, this Grand Jury has cast a wide net, eliciting sworn testimony from a range of both expert and lay witnesses on issues both central and adjacent to the questions we have been charged with resolving. We have learned a great deal— some of which we will discuss in detail below — and we would like to thank those witnesses who have appeared before us so far. Admittedly, however, we are not physicians. Some of us are involved in the medical field, but most of us work in other professions and vocations. We have, however, spoken to numerous doctors, professors and scientists with a broad range of viewpoints on the topics we will discuss below and other topics we intend to discuss in the future. In a way, this Grand Jury has allowed us to do something that most Americans simply do not have the time, access, or wherewithal to do: Follow the science.

Strangely, every single federal agency refused to comply with subpoenas and other requests from Florida’s Grand Jury:

Our Legal Advisor has sought the assistance of several agencies of the United States Government which have thus far declined to participate. The Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Army, among others, all had a substantial hand in the contracting, approval and distribution process for the COVID-19 vaccines at the center of our inquiry. These agencies have elected not to provide representatives to testify before this body, and federal law prohibits us from compelling their cooperation.

Happily, the Grand Jury determined they don’t need the federal agencies. I know just how they feel. There is enough information from other sources, published agency guidance, and Congressional testimony, so that the jurors easily bypassed federal efforts to obstruct them.

This well-written, even-handed, non-controversial report is the first step toward accounting for the chaotic, dictatorial, and ultimately counter-productive pandemic response by federal, state, and local officials. Unfortunately, the people who most need this information will refuse to see. But it is now in the record. Under our form of representative government, the people — not experts, politicians, or unelected bureaucrats — hold ultimate authority. This Grand Jury report constitutes the people’s voice, and the people are not impressed.

It is difficult to calculate the depth of gratitude owed to Governor DeSantis and a large number of courageous Floridians, both in and out of government, who contributed to the preparation and publication of this badly-needed review.
