Amid the polarization caused by one of the most bitterly contested presidential elections in US history, citizens of red rural Oregon are deciding they have more in common with their American brethren and the state government in Idaho across the Snake River than their fellows in Portland.
And as the apparent COVID mandatory vaccine steamroller approaches, it is not lost that Idaho is a state with one of the strongest medical freedom movements in the country, where Idahoans barely tolerate the vaccine laws that already exist, never mind allow the state to push on them one of the most needless, dangerous vaccines in history. (See: “Science Backs Dr. Judy Mikovits’ Warning That COVID Vaccine Could Kill 50 Million Americans”)
“The Democratic-dominated state Legislature doesn’t seem likely to take up the cause anytime soon. But McCarter thinks the Nov. 3 vote was the first victory in a long process: He’s hoping to push similar ballot measures in 11 other counties as soon as next year.
His vision is to have 22 of Oregon’s 36 counties become part of a new “Greater Idaho,” along with some parts of Northern California. He says that would allow Oregon state leaders — at least the ones who remain Oregon state leaders — to focus on the problems facing urban communities.”
It has been known since the end of May, according to the CDC, that COVID is a 99.8% survival rate virus, similar to flu, which is 99.9%, obviating the need for any vaccine whatsoever. While it is true that severe cases of COVID can have serious after-effects, this is true of any serious case of a respiratory disease, including flu.
In Sweden, despite never having a lockdown and never ordering masks, with life going on as normal, the death rate has plunged to 20% below the US, and low than France, Italy, UK, Spain, and Belgium, all “lockdown” countries.
The move follows a recent wave of transplants to Idaho from California who are against the growing number of mandatory vaccines required for children in that state.
“I’m a mother. And I’m also a California refugee,” Brindley, a Meridian resident, said at a hearing in Boise in August 2019. “I came here in search of medical freedom.”
Other US Counties to Realign?
No matter who it is decided will be president, the deep fissures between red and blue America are unlikely to disappear, as local governments tire of answering to state houses run by Democratic establishments. An advantage for these counties is they tend to incorporate the food growing, agricultural regions of states, with local economies which could theoretically attain a measure of self-sufficiency.
One candidate for a similar movement could arise in the three deep red counties of southeastern New Mexico, Eddy, Otero, and Lea Counties. These abut the Texas panhandle near El Paso, and have far more in common with the gun and “leave us alone” culture of most parts of that state than with the Democratic machine of New Mexico’s largest city, Albuquerque.
As COVID vaccine mandates approach, it is likely that well-armed and food independent red counties will declare themselves not obliged to follow tyrannical mandates originating from governor’s mansions and state houses. Interestingly, US soldiers, and especially elite forces, tend to be vastly disproportionately from these counties.
Idaho is one of 15 states that allow vaccine exemptions based on a personal belief.

COVID Update in Charts
Although anyone glued to a television may be forgiven for thinking the world is about to end, many doctors and scientists are emerging unable to contain themselves anymore, to say that COVID is resembling a mass hype operation to pave the way for mandatory COVID vaccination, even though the death rate for normal flu is higher for most age categories.
Physicians for Informed Consent, a 501c3 organization of medical doctors who support medical freedom, i.e. only voluntary, non-coerced vaccination, reports that:
“Relative to Case Fatality Rates (CFR) that are based on both reported and unreported cases, the CFR of SARS-CoV-2 is comparable to that of respiratory illness (both flu and pneumonia) during seasons of typical or pandemic flu…”
The Case Fatality Rate is the number of deaths per confirmed cases.
Although present COVID deaths are reported at about US 250,000, many are suspicious that normal flu deaths – typically 40,000 – 85,000 per year, have gone down to almost nothing, and heart attack and cancer deaths, both leading causes of death, have sharply declined.
It is not even necessary to speculate that any death which can be tagged as COVID is being tagged as COVID. Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House Coronavirus Task Force made this exact pronouncement in the spring, saying in April:
“If someone dies with COVID-19 we are counting that as a COVID-19 death.”
Medical doctors also report that CDC guidelines are to mark deaths down as COVID even without test confirmation, when only “presumed.”
Since at least 50,000 heart attacks and heart event deaths have been listed being co-morbid with COVID, and since in the neighborhood of 50,000 normal flu deaths are nowhere to be found, it is reasonable to speculate that the true COVID death count may actually be half what it is reported to be. Or less.
Despite COVID being commonly compared to the 1918 Spanish Flu, this is not remotely the correct comparison. The correct one would be the 1957 Asian Flu pandemic or the 1968 flu pandemic, which took similar tolls per capita in the US. In 1957 116,000 mostly elderly Americans succumbed, with the population of the US half of what it is now. There was never a whisper of a lockdown or masks. Indeed, unless one were a worker in a nursing home, most Americans never even knew it was taking place.
