We were casting about for a video montage of clips that best sum up the force and the amount of institutional lying we in this country have endured over the past three or four years. And there were so many to choose from. But in the end, we settled on this because it summed it up pretty nicely. Watch. So there's no excuse. No excuse for anyone being unvaccinated.


This continues to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated.


A pandemic and an outbreak of the unvaccinated.


This is really becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated.


This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated?


This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated? This is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated.


A pandemic of the unvaccinated. A pandemic of the unvaccinated. So, again, we could have chose many different topics to remind you of how much lying you have had to live through over the past several years. That just seemed like the most obvious and in some ways, the most hilarious. But what's really interesting about it is how the people around you responded. A very large percentage knew it was false, because the evidence suggests overwhelmingly that it was, but went along with it anyway on the grounds that it's not even worth fighting back against people that powerful. So I'll sort of go along with it. Some smaller percentage actually believed it, and you learn something very sad about them, which is that they're credulous, in some cases, not super geniuses. But there was an even smaller percentage who decided, well, wait a second. No, that's not true. And you can't make me say it's true. Under no circumstances will I knowingly lie, because it's immoral and it diminishes me. And by repeating your lies, I reveal myself not as a free person or a citizen, but as a slave. And I'm not going to do that, period.


And it was watching those people emerge from the most unlikely places. In many cases, that was the thrill and has been the ongoing thrill and joy of living in this otherwise very sad moment. And one of the people we watched do that was someone, to be honest, didn't expect to see, but not only did it, but kept doing it to a lot of abuse. And that was Naomi Wolf, who's been in the public sphere for 35 years anyway, writing and commenting on various things. And she's one of the people who decided, I'm not gonna say something I think is not true, period. And so she's lived the last few years of her life like that. And she's the author of a new book about what that experience is like and has been like. It's called Facing the Beast. Courage, faith, and resistance in a new dark age. What kind of sums it up? And we are honored to have her here in the studio. Amy Wolfe, thank you so much for coming. So what's so interesting, as I said, is the effect that this moment, and it's not just a public health story, I don't think, but this moment of lying has had on certain people.


So can you just tell us in broad terms when you started to realize this was happening, what effect it had on you and what your life has been like since?


Sure. Thank you for that kind introduction, of course. Heartfelt thank you. Well, I realized the whole culture was lying by about July of 2020, because luckily for me, I'd written a book called the End of America in 2007 during the Bush Junior era, and which.


By the way, admission, I never even considered reading that book because I was like, Yomi Whelp's on the other side. This is probably stupid, and it just shows how stupid I was. Anyway, sorry, just wonder what, no, no.


It's like we were all wearing blinders about ideology at that time and probably till recently. But the reason it was lucky that I had gone through that is that I had looked for my research for that book at times and places throughout history where a fragile democracy had been undermined and there had been a coup, essentially, whether by fascist forces on the right or to totalitarian forces on the left. I learned that tyrants always do the same ten things. They took ten steps to closing an open society. So from having done that research, I saw quickly when Governor Cuomo announced that we couldnt meet with more than six people at once in our homes in New York state, and, you know, we couldnt assemble to pray, I realized we were at step ten, which is martial law. Its emergency law. Its the last. Were already in step ten, fast forwarded. They jumped over all other nine steps, and I realized how dangerous that was because once you have emergency law, anything can happen. And then when I realized that I personally was being, I don't know, damaged by powerful forces for not lying, that was a year later, pretty much in June of 2021, when I was doing what I've done for 35 years, which is reporting on a woman's health issue.


I've written three bestsellers about women's sexual and reproductive health. It's not a new beat for me.


No, no.


And so I was reporting on Twitter that women were reporting eyewitness accounts of themselves, that they were having menstrual dysregulation or symptoms upon receiving the mRNA injection which had at that point, rolled out. And I literally just accurately reported this and said something like, it bears more investigation. And I was overnight all at once. It was very extraordinary. Deplatformed from Twitter, from Facebook, from YouTube, but also all the newspapers and news outlets where I'd been a commentator or columnist for 35 years ran pieces smearing me and saying I was spreading misinformation and I was anti vaxxer. And my Wikipedia page changed overnight, which I now understand better because I didn't understand the role of AI at that point in journalism. And basically I became a non person on the left. I was kicked out overnight from my comfortable perch, you know, in the liberal elite media. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise.


She'd occupied since like early nineties, late eighties. I mean, I remember very well, yes.


No, it had been, I had been like, I don't know if you can say, you know, I'd been a fixture of that work.


Oh, you were a lifetime member.


There's no, yeah, no, I got it. I knew where I was. I agree with you. And so that was extraordinary because people who had sought me out for my opinion wouldn't, you know, wouldn't even not take my calls. They were like just shredding my reputation. I was.


People you knew.


Yeah, people I knew. Colleagues, friends. I mean, it was wholesale. Because not only had I done the bad thing of questioning the vaccines and just reporting accurately on a real symptom, which turns out to be a very important symptom, because if youve got menstrual dysregulation in 2021, youre going to have what we now have, which is a 13% to 20% drop in live births, according to government databases throughout the west in 2023 and 2024, but I did the bad thing of talking to conservatives because after I got kicked out of the liberal elite media, interestingly, very interestingly to me, the people who did want to hear what I had to say because they cared about women and babies and families, were conservatives. And so Steve Bannon had me on his show, and I was very happy to speak to him because this was a very important problem that women were facing. And of course, you're not allowed to speak to Steve Bannon. I talked to you in 2021 and media matters went full on attack because I talked to you about this very important problem affecting women and babies. And it was just surreal to me.


People who purported to be feminists and egalitarians and to care about women were very happy to throw this whole issue under the bus if you kind of crossed this red line that society had erected kind of overnight where there were things you're not supposed to question people and you're not supposed to talk to.


How shocked were you by this?


I was very shocked. I mean, I knew that my side had become increasingly ideologically rigid and extreme and irrational in some ways. Like, I saw the kind of mission creep from liberalism to, you know, kind of woke ism. I mean, I hate that phrase, but there's no better phrase. But I still thought, you know, we talk about this from time to time, you and I, when we get a chance to talk, it's like I still thought that world existed in which if you're in the news business, you report facts, you know, and if you're in the media, you can have opinions. And that that world was gone and we were living in kind of a stalinist reality.


Very quickly, what did that do to your personal life? Because obviously nothing, you know, we didn't live in a country this politically charged or polarized ten years ago. It was still political. And if you were identified with the left, most of your friends were on the left. And, I mean, it was still, it was that way in the nineties, I remember. So did this mean the end of your personal relationships?


A lot of them, sadly. I mean, I'm very lucky that I have a husband who is very courageous, and he's also a soldier. He's been in, you know, he's a veteran, and he's been in a lot of scary situations. And so he understood very early on that this was a war. And because he studies China, he understood that, you know, there were forces that were trying to subvert our country in non conventional ways. And that helped me because it gave me a frame to understand what was happening, but it was incredibly painful. One of my best friends left the country without saying goodbye because she was disappointed in my position on vaccines. Literally, my position was, here are some facts that are emerging. It's like, that was my position. Let's see, we were not invited to thanksgivings. We had, oh, Christmas of 2021, maybe it was 2022. President Biden gave his famous it's going to be a winter of severe disease and death for unvaccinated. We are looking at a winter of severe illness and death unvaccinated for themselves.


Their families, and the hospitals, they'll soon overwhelm.


And we had had a, you know, Christmas vacation with a lot of loved ones planned, and it all got canceled, you know, because everyone was in a state of fear because, you know, the president on down was saying at that point that, you know, unvaccinated people, let alone people, were trying to warn people about some of the side effects that were emerging were dangerous dissidents who were carrying plague, and no amount of reason would. Would break through. But, yeah, there were a lot of very painful endings of friendships. And as I wrote in facing the beast, it wasn't just on the kind of rejecting side. Right. I wasn't just on the receiving end. I was witnessing the creation overnight, especially by 2021, 2022 in New York City, where most of my friendships were and most of my colleagues were, but also in Washington. The creation of a two tier society exactly along the same lines as a Jim Crow society or, you know, during the occupation in France when jews couldn't go certain places.


Rustalamus society.


Exactly. And all these people who were so right on, who were leaders in the feminist movement, you know, who would never discriminate against people of color or against people in the LGBTQ community who opposed discrimination, embraced discrimination. They were fine with it. They were fine with a city. The greatest city on Earth, the most diverse city on earth, you know, famous melting pot City, New York City. They were fine with a situation in which unvaccinated people had to eat in the street like animals. I could not walk into a restaurant with my family, and they were fine with it.


And then having, you know, Uber eats delivery men of color brave the pandemic to bring them sushi. Like. That's right.


They didn't see any. They were not ashamed. They were not ashamed of massive discrimination. They were. I mean, I remember going to a big rally, one of the earliest ones in New York City, on behalf of first responders who were being fired because they would not take these mandated, totally experimental injections whose trials were still underway till 2023. Right. This was 2021, and there was no evidence that they were safe. They were experimental. It was an emergency use authorization. They had not gone through the normal FDA approval process. And reasonably enough, some firefighters and police officers and emergency healthcare workers didn't want to be the guinea pigs, and they were being fired. Their kids had no, you know, food to eat. They didn't know how they would pay their mortgages. And I remember going down to speak at this event, and I looked out over this sea of New York City fire, firefighters, and police officers, and people who come and save you when youve got a heart attack, you know, EMT responders. And I was like, where are my, wheres? Where is everyone from my world? Theyre all supposed to be here. These people help them.


You know, no one showed up. All the good liberals were fine having the police officers and the firefighters who would save them if they were being robbed or their house was on fire or their kids were in a burning building. These guys and girls would run in to save their children. My peers were fine letting this be done to them. And it was so elitist and so disgusting.


So your mind must have exploded.


It was so hard to process. And it wasn't just, like a handful. It was en masse. It was like everyone was in a cult, and it was a cult of, in which they were abandoning all the ideals that they had professed and that I had admired. Why I was a liberal is we don't do things like that. You know, we don't sacrifice whole classes of people, but I guess we did.


Why do you think you were in the tiny percentage who wouldn't go along with it?


That's a hard question. I mean, I guess. Well, I've never got along with anything, you know, that shouldn't be gone along with.


I know the feeling.


I guess I'm lucky.


So you didn't get that far in the Girl Scouts is what you're saying.


I don't think they would have had me. I think I'm lucky for a few reasons. I mentioned how great it was. Like, a lot of marriages ended during this time. I had someone beside me who was supporting me.




I know. I'm so, so lucky. Yeah, we're very lucky. But also, my grandmother, Faye Goleman, wherever she is, bless her, she was an absolute. She believed in this country. She was a patriot. And her mom was a 16 year old russian immigrant, and I'm the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants. And she just fiercely believed in this country. And she didn't put up with bullies. And so I guess she just raised me to be aware of when this country was veering away from freedoms of speech, you know, democracy, liberty. That's what, you know, my family had fled the tsars and, you know, fled Germany on the other side of the family to escape. So I recognized it, you know, the stench of it, the stench of fascism and totalitarianism.


But you share that with probably five dozen other people. I know almost that exact family story in a, in a history of principled nonconformism, which I have always admired, and none of them went to the first responders protest. So it does. No, I'm not attacking anyone. But it is interesting that it still doesn't quite explain why you wound up in the place that you did.


I understand that I'm believing in and behaving according to values I've always had. I don't understand why people around me who professed the same values turned all at once. I mean, they were being heavily propagandized.


You know, but these are, I mean, how honest you want to be. These are smart people.


I know.


You know what I mean? And they're certainly well educated people.


I know, I know, I know, I know. I can't explain it. I mean, you know, you, I'm sure aware of Doctor Michael Nell's book, the Indoctrinated Brain. And I think some of it is, you know, I can only speculate, Tucker, but people were isolated. And as I wrote in my last book, the bodies of others, isolation is a way to break down prisoners and it's a form of torture and it changes the brain. And so people who were isolated and being propagandized nonstop that, you know, we're the ones endangering everyone, or those first responders who won't get vaccinated, they're the ones endangering everyone. They believed that you should fire the first responders because they're endangering everything. You know, everyone was lying at that point. From the top down. The CDC was implying or stating that vaccination stops infection. Rachel Maddow said that, you know, the virus stops when you're vaccinated, as I recall. I mean, I don't have her exact words in front of me. The president was saying, if you get vaccinated, it stops the virus. All the language implied that we were the ones endangering everyone, endangering children, endangering grandma. So its a very demonic set of lies, Tucker, because people who, you know, through the first responders and firefighters and police officers under the bus or the soldiers and the sailors did so believing that we were the ones harming society and that they were being good.


And that also by submitting themselves to these injections, they were, you know, show, I mean, that was the language. The language was actually, Yale was where they did the focus groups. They took the money from HHS and they did the focus groups finding out the propaganda bullet points that liberals respond to most. And they were altruistic. They were like, you know, do the right thing for society. Okay, here, you know, well, they leverage.


Your best qualities, and those are a person's best qualities. Altruism is your best quality. And they took that and used it against them.


Yeah. But also, like, I get this point in my kind of, how did this all happen? Internal monolog. And then I think, just like you, these are smart people. Read a book.


Well, that's. Of course, I completely agree. And the reason I'm pressing you on this is because I don't know the answer myself. And I've been brooding on it for a couple years now. I suspect it's a more core variable. I think it may have to do with how healthy your personal life is. I do think that people I know who had healthy marriages, you know, respectful, happy, those people were less susceptible.




But I don't know. So while all of this was going on, and I remember very well watching a lot of surprises, you went from being, you know, kind of a celebrated person to being an enemy and watching CIA controlled Wikipedia write that into history. Your sins. I wonder, like, are any of your friends reaching out to you offline, privately to say, I'm with you, or.


Oh, it's sadder than that. I mean, no one will ever. No one has ever said I behaved abominably. I'm so sorry.


Not one person's ever said that.


Not one. No.




However. However. I mean, this is so heartbreaking there. I mean, I don't want to, like, throw my friends under the bus, but the form it takes, this is what will happen to me. Typically, I've started to be invited back to some of the parties that I got dramatically excluded from. And I'll go because I want to build bridges and heal society and all.


See old friends.


See old friends, certainly. I mean, it's not like I don't go back with emotions, but I go back and I'll just be standing there and people will come up to me without even introducing themselves, tell me their symptoms. They'll say I have blood clots in my legs, or my grandfather just passed from a triple heart attack. They'll just share their symptoms. And so I feel like people are waking up, and I don't need an apology. I don't, because this isn't about me. It's about something much more important. But I feel like if society will ever heal that emerging awareness that something catastrophic happened, people have to understand that something catastrophic happened in order to heal. And I do see that happening.


It does feel like, on an individual level, I also hear that because I wasn't vaxxed and said so and so maybe people feel comfortable if they know, you know, where you stand on that. And I'm not very judgy, so I'll sit and listen. But I have not heard one acknowledgement outside of, you know, interviews I've done with people. But more broadly, society wide, I haven't heard any public official even refer to it.


No, no. In fact, there's a section facing the beast that goes into that. It's like the phrases move on. You know, when you go back to Brooklyn or to New York now the, you know, those elite circles or the circles where the culture's being produced or even where politics is being produced, except, you know, the outside figures with whom I talk to these days, the consensus is almost like this massive amnesia or probably like Germany after, you know, in 1946. Like, let's just move on. Let's not discuss it like there's a section of feast and the beast where I go into a bookstore in Brooklyn, you know, a good one, Jackson McNally. And theres like not a book by the experts on racial disparities in education about brown and black children being left behind for two years and falling back academically in ways that are unlikely to recover in their lifetimes. You know, from feminists. Theres not a book about how women lost all the gains they made in the workforce because they had to go home and look after children who are chained to computers, you know, the doctors, the health section, nothing about the vast documentation now of the injuries and sterilizations and deaths, you know, resulting from these mRNA injections or nothing about treatments.


The people like Robert Reich Dont talk about the biggest transfer of assets in living history. As you know, small businesses, small landlords, couldnt compete, had to close their shops, had to, you know, sell their properties off at fire sale prices. Blackrock and Vanguard scooped up the properties and, you know, now we have a renter society. Sorry, now we have a renter. Exactly, exactly, exactly. And yeah, and all the liberal economists are not talking about that at all. Not a word. And so weirdly, I'm having the most important conversations of my life with libertarians and conservatives and independents because the whole societal superstructure won't process what happened. Because they were complicit.


Yeah, they're implicated in the crime and.


Legally implicated in many cases, but it's.


Also the great liberation of, it's the only liberation of your life is admitting how wrong you were, how loathsome you've been saying that out loud is to be freed from it. So I just feel like a lot of people, millions of people are missing the opportunity to be much happier than they've ever been when you just say, I did this and I'm sorry.


Right? I think so. But, you know, you asked earlier why did so many people go along with a great crime and a massive lie? And, you know, one of the things we haven't talked about that in my observation, distinguishes between the people who could tell and hear the truth and those who went along with this massive lie and crime is religious faith. You know, I couldn't agree more. And so if you believe.


I don't think religious faith is possible unless or any kind of personal growth, but religious faith is not possible unless you admit how screwed up you are.


Totally. But if you don't really have a very deep religious faith, you don't think you have to.






So how. Okay, so I wanted to. That's one of the main things I wanted to talk about, about how this changed you as a person, because you can't go through. Through something that transformative. I mean, I don't think this was on your list of potential future events like lose all my friends, wind up with Steve Bannon. Like, what? So how did that affect you as a person?


Which part?


The whole experience. So, like you in 2024, how were you different from the way you were in 2019?


Gotcha. Well, I mean, one huge difference, and I think a lot of us who are colleagues on this journey, you know, feel the same way. The scales have fallen from our eyes, right, about so many things, but about every institution, you know, in 2019, I thought hospitals were places where doctors would heal people, and they became death factories for bonuses. You know, they were prescribing killer medication to get those bonuses. I'm sure your audience is familiar with the work that's been done on that. I thought that, you know, as I mentioned, that the media told the truth and they were willing to take the money from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and then from the CARES act, to lie, you know, to overcome vaccine hesitantly, to lie and lie and lie and to smear people who were telling the truth. I mean, we could go on and on, you know, the presidency, Congress, I mean, everyone and around the world, right, especially the west, that was targeted by these lies and by this global coup. I don't think that's an overstatement. All of those institutions didn't work. Only a few people resisted in all of our major institutions, the educational system, the universities.


You know, I went to Yale because they were mandating these shots for the kids, a booster. The staff was exempt. The administration was exempt. The faculty was exempt. And I knew for sure that they were going to cause some hard damage to the young men and some reproductive damage to the young women and the young men. And they took more money from HHS than they take from tuition. So they don't need the students. They're trafficking the students bodies. In effect, they don't need the students as much as they need.


Had you gone to.


Yes. Yeah, I was. Alma mater.




I know. So, again, like, one institution after another just exploding and collapsing when it comes to basic ethics or basic professional obligations, you know, so I guess that's a difference between.


Well, so. But that raises kind of the core question. It's like, all the things that you believed in, you could no longer believe in.




So what do you believe in?


Well, while all of those insights were shocking me with how corrupt everything was and that we really have to rebuild everything from the ground up. Right. It's not redeemable.




I mean, you look at Canada. You were just in Canada. You know, if they're. If they've got a death program and they're advertising death to depressed teenagers, that is not a redeemable situation. You know, we. I think we're at a time in which we have to, you know, understand that it's 1774 again, 1770, 517, 76, and rebuild all these institutions from the ground up in a. In a way, aligned with our, I would say, divine mission on this planet as Americans.




And people around the world have the same divine mission to. To build. I mean, I think democracy is kind of sacred. And so when you have freedom, you have a sacred space in alignment with our human mission to kind of walk with God, appropriately. So. I think we just need to rebuild all of it from the ground up. And I guess, to finish answering your question, a difference between the way I saw the world then and the way I see the world now is I, you know that parable, who's who, you know, who's my brother, right. The people I thought were my brothers and sisters are not my brothers and sisters. And my brothers and sisters are people from all walks of life, many conservatives, many libertarians, people of faith, people not of, you know, conventional faith, but who care about their fellow human beings. And it's a beautiful time as well as being a horrific time, because these people are finding each other and starting to build new institutions.


Yes. I feel that so strongly that it is a beautiful time. And it's so important not to let the sadness that you feel watching everything you love die blind you to the things that are being born right in front of you. Would your 2019 self have used the phrase walk with God. By the way, it's not just liberals. I don't know many educated, college educated conservatives who would have used that phrase either. So what changed in you that you're comfortable using that?


Well, and this is something I write about in facing the beast, when I considered what I was seeing with all the heads of state of countries around the world walking in lockstep, in a way, in an anti human assault against citizens. Right? I mean, the lockdowns targeted everything that's best about us as human beings. Prayer, singing, family, intimacy, physical contact, physical touch, physical contact, community. Right. All of that was targeted. When I saw that happening around the world in identical language all at the same time, I realized that that was not from my study of history. That's not possible by just human history. Human history doesn't work that way.




There are always dissidents inside, right. Or there are always factions or rich people who can't be bribed or, you know, martyrs who's way messier than that.


That's right.




It's organic. Right.


You know, Hitler's situation was messier all in. Very messy. Stalin's like, oh, my gosh, they fought.


A civil war for five years.


Totally. But you don't get lockstep evil all over the world in concert with merely human efforts. And I also just felt that the world had something new let loose on it. It just felt like these dark forces had been let loose that had not been on the planet. I felt the same thing my whole life. And I saw that this was evil, right? I saw that it was so impressive, that it was beyond human capacity and that it was evil. That was so impressive. So I concluded that I believed that in God more literally than I had, because the evil aimed at him was. Was more literal than I'd ever witnessed before. So it must be aimed at something that really exists, you know?


And so you sort of came at it from a photographic negative.


Initially. Initially. But then I also asked myself, what is this evil? And, I mean, I've always been interested in evil. Like, as the granddaughter of. Of people who lost siblings in the Holocaust, you know, you think about evil. So the explanations that are around, like, it's Satan, that didn't. Wasn't satisfying to me. Partly because I knew the literary creation evolution of the idea of Satan in the west, which is kind of very elaborated by Dante and Milton. And also because I'm jewish and we don't have the same discourse around Satan. You know, Satan kind of shows up once or twice, but he's not the same figure of, like, magisterial evil in the Old Testament. So I read a book by a jewish writer who became a messianic jew, meaning he believes in Jesus called Jonathan Cahn, and it's called the return of the gods. And while I don't believe everything in the book, his thesis made emotional sense to me, which is, he argued that we in the west, but especially we in America, have kind of released our hold on the covenant with God. And when we do that, we leave. The parable he cited was from the New Testament about the room that's empty and then seven demons come and inhabit it.


You know, it's all a metaphor, but it's also not a metaphor that when we did this, it allowed these negative entities to kind of reoccupy us in our society. And he talked about actual pre christian, like, early entities, the ones that my people in the Hebrew Bible were fighting against or, you know, always being tempted by. And that's Malik, which is just violence, and Baal, which is just pure power, and Astarte, which is kind of unlicensed, anti family sexuality. Right? Like irresponsible sexuality. And that actually resonated with me because not like, literally, oh, they're here. But, like, what if, you know that story in the Hebrew Bible about people being seduced away all the time by these powerful forces that wanted them to sacrifice their children and wanted to destroy their families? What if that was really real? And the story of first the ten Commandments coming to earth? And then the story of this redeemer and Jesus in the New Testament coming to earth? What if that did bring some moral beauty and order to the world in a way that kept those forces at bay? Then look at european history. Everything is consecrated.


And american history, too. Santangelo, San Michele, Santa Barbara. You know, all of these places are consecrated. We were a city on a hill. What if that was real? You know? And what if when we stopped caring about consecrating our societies and our land and we stopped doing our part in just living morally or trying to live morally, it does allow this vulnerability in which these horrible forces can just come in and. And flip all these institutions. And I saw this happening overnight. All these institutions devoted to good things like hospitals and schools, were overnight devoted to their mirror image. You know, grooming children, harming children, suffocating children with masks. You know, we talked about the hospitals. What if. What if there's truth, that there's a certain safety we have as a society when we consecrate ourselves and our society to a higher good.


Well, I mean, it's. It's the story of history, though. I mean, I'm not quite done with the Old Testament. I'm. I've been reading it straight through to Jeremiah for the first time. But it seems to me that as. I mean, it's the whole, the whole narrative so far is we have this deal, and when you stray from the deal, you don't have my protection anymore.




The Babylonians swoop in, the temple's destroyed twice.




For those reasons. I mean, that's what it says.




And so it's not a new idea at all. You're not describing anything modern. You're describing like, the story of the last 5000 years.


Well, Tucker, you're exactly right. I mean, I thought I was educated, but I've never read the Bible.


I had neither. I went to college, too.


Right. Both of us, with our expensive educations, were never given that book from beginning to end for a class. And I'm fortunate in that I read Hebrew, and I also.


You read Hebrew?


I do read Hebrew.


Well, that's pretty cool.


It's lucky. Not perfectly, but I, you know, I can. And also I can read 16th century typography because of an arcane class I took once at Oxford for my m. Lit. But point is, I've been reading the Geneva Bible, which is the founder's Bible. It's. It predates the King James Bible, and it's the Bible that created the Reformation, created the puritan movement. And it's very much more closely translated from the Hebrew than any subsequent Bible that I've read. And this has been so amazing to me because what you just said, like, it's just all laid out. It's totally laid out right. In Hebrew and in the Geneva Bible. Here's. And it's not like, punitive, but there's a social contract between us. And he just keeps explaining it, like, so many times.


That's what strikes me. I'm not reading this with anyone else. I'm just reading it alone. I've had no input on my conclusions. I just want to read it and see what's there. But the main thing that sticks out is the repetition, right? I mean, over and over, oh, like 10,000 times. It's like, look, it's really simple, you know? And I don't really quite know what to make of that. But it's not a new concept. But it's the concept.


It's the concept. And here's another mind blowing thing. If we're diving right in there in the original Hebrew and in the faithful translation of the Geneva Bible, the figure, the character of God, is totally different than later mistranslations of standard bibles that we read in the west in English, totally different. He's not, I was taught that God is irrational, arbitrary, kind of cruel. You can't understand him. Distant from human beings, different from human beings in the original. He's so like us, loves us, keeps trying to help us get it right. Super relatable. Nothing's too small for his concern shows up, and he just keeps being written. That aspect of his character keeps being written out of later translations, like almost. I'm not going to say intentionally, but systematically. And the other thing is, you don't need a middleman. In the original, it's like God's right there. You know, Hagar is cast out into the sands with her. You know, she's a slave woman with her baby. She goes away from the baby because she doesn't want to watch her little son die. And there's God, you know, right there. Or Jacob is trying to. Is about to cross the river.


He's about to face his brother. They've had a deadly relationship with each other in the past. His family's at risk. And it's not an angel who wrestles with Jacob that is a mistranslation. It's God preparing him for this confrontation with his brother. Over and over, God is written out in later iterations, and the role of the middleman is stressed. Right, the priest or Moses, you know, and so later translations serve religion, but they're not accurate. They don't depict God accurately. If we read these bibles, and this is why the Puritans were so confident and why the, you know, the early reformers were so confident, we would never fear because, you know, we're God's children, and he makes it super clear. But he also is like, here's how I'll protect you. Do these simple things. If you don't do these simple things, terrible things will happen. And as you say, that's the story.


Over and over again and again and again and again, various figures in the Bible facing some very, very perilous moments. I mean, the amount of kind of scary scenes and violence, it's, like, all totally shocking to me.


Right. Isn't it interesting that that's pretty much not read in churches and synagogues?


Well, I'd never. I went to Episcopal Church, you know, my whole life, and I never heard any of it, like, any of it. Yeah, I don't know how that happened.


I went to conservative temple my whole.


Life, which is basically the same as the Episcopal church.


Totally. So Orthodox Jews read the text, and they're on fire.


No, that's totally right.


But I think this text is so subversive and extraordinary and revolutionary in its original form. No one would do the things that they do if they read this original text, and they would feel so it.


Doesn'T bear to any resemblance to the conversations I hear about religion. And totally. Again, I'm reading this alone, so maybe I'm missing the whole thing, or maybe.


You'Re getting the whole. Because it's very simple. Because when you read it alone, it's very simple. Right.


I think it is. And remarkable. But the number of times God tells various players in these stories, you know, you can hear the hoofbeats in the distance, and they're gonna come in and burn everything and take everyone away to captivity, to slavery. Don't be afraid.




Don't be afraid. Has it had that effect on you? Are you less afraid reading this, for sure? Really?




I love that. Because there's a lot to be afraid of right now, especially if you're spending your life as you are, looking at the details and getting a sense of the scale of what's happened.


Right. Well, I married my bodyguard, so I'm not physically afraid for that reason, even though it's a very treacherous, scary time for dissidents. But, I mean, I understand why people of faith aren't scared, because this guy in the original, this being, you know, will take care of it. Maybe not here, right? But this isn't all there is. Like, maybe we don't know the big picture, right where we are. But for sure where I feel now, reading this, for sure, everyone, every individual, is held in the palm of God, and God cares so much about every single person, every single person's fate, and is so sad when we stray from this very simple, easy path that he wants us to walk so that we can be close to him. Right. So, yeah, I think the most courageous people I know now, in this time of 1776, believe this because they can't get hurt.


Ultimately, does it set your own just extraordinary and unexpected? Like, is it true for all of us, all of our life paths are extraordinary, unexpected. But does it set it into a kind of context, maybe for you.


Oh, that's such an interesting question. You mean, were we born for such a time as this?


Yeah, that's what I mean.


Kind of. I mean, some really scary things happened to me in my life in the past, and I didn't understand why? And now I think, well, I'm really not very scared because I've been through scary things and, you know, the White House doesn't scare me. DHS doesn't scare me. Apart from that, I don't know because that would presume kind of fate. And I do believe in fate, but I also believe in free will and I haven't figured out how to solve that problem. You have let me know.


I don't. I don't. I grew up thinking that because I'm from southern California, so I thought Calvinism was like the most ludicrous thing I'd ever heard. And I was very offended by the concept of Calvinism. And then I watched other people's lives and had some perspective of my own life. And I. I started to kind of suspect that free will wasn't the whole story because I have known good people who've really suffered disproportionately and through no fault of their own. They're not the sum of their own choices. Actually, there's something else going on here. And I have also known people who don't deserve to thrive, who have. It's obviously more complicated than my 8th grade formulation accounted for, but I don't know the answer to the question.


But I mean, people who don't deserve to thrive, but do. I mean, one thing I've become very sure of is that we are accountable and for everything that we do. That there will be a time when we're face to face with our creator and we'll have to account for what we said and did. Like, I don't mean in a punitive way, but like, this is, this is my life record. This is what I did on my one opportunity on this earth. And that's partly why I know that I would rather face whatever, you know, being kicked out of cocktail parties or, you know, called names or whatever on this planet than face God and say, I stood by while babies were killed and women were rendered infertile. You know, that would scare me, right? So I do believe that all of us are going to have that moment, and not in a punitive way, but, like, we bring the sum of our actions with us, you know, back home, essentially. And I think if people really understood that, they would want to behave in a way aligned with God's will, which is a very nice, friendly will.


If you read the Hebrew Bible or the Bible, it's like not that hard to be a good person rather than carry with them any crime, theft, moral lapse, selfishness, ignorance, hatred, the kinds of things people are happy to carry on this life as long as they're doing well externally.


I assume prayer was not part of your daily life 10, 15, 20 years ago.


Or maybe it was not really. Again, not in a way that was really integrated with my conscious self.


How do you approach it now? How do you think about it?


I have concluded that, you know, that prayer is a weapon, I mean, a good one, but that it makes a difference in the world, that it. That it does things in the world. And for me, what little I understand about this metaphysical realm. Prayer isn't like I was taught you have to say to God, you're so great, you're so powerful. And I'm like, what kind of God is that that needs us to be like, you're so awesome? You know, that's not very godlike, right? But I think it's the other way around. I think that when we pray it helps us. Like, you know, when we train or when we run a marathon or when we go to the gym, it's like when we pray we're in a state in which we're able to get closer to God, to be in more of a relationship with God and that that's for us and then it makes us stronger as a result.


Is it a hard discipline to pick up or a hard practice to start?


Well, I really thought it was because I felt very stupid and self conscious.


Of course, talking to God, yes.


But I think that's the weird blessing of these horrible three years. Is that what I witnessed? Well, I'm skipping over a part which I'll share, but what I was witnessing was so horrific, it was like opening the gates of Auschwitz in 1945. I mean, but beyond that because of the scale, because what I haven't talked about is that in the middle of these years I'm describing a project got started up actually it seems Steve Bannon's recommendation that we convene what became 3250 doctors and scientists to go through the Pfizer documents that were released under court order. When the FDA lost a lawsuit, the FDA had asked the court to keep them hidden for 75 years. And these doctors and scientists, so distinguished, issued what are now 94 reports explaining in very plain english whats in the documents and report after report brought forward such unbelievable criminality, intentional systematic crimes against humanity and against, you know, babies and babies in utero and, you know, women and men and children that I was overwhelmed that such an evil thing could have happened. And so I had no choice but to pray because I don't think I could have kept working on this material.


What was the effect on you of praying?


That's such a good question. Well, nothing's as scary, right?




And I guess what is the effect? I mean, it makes.


You kept doing it, so obviously it worked.


Yeah. I mean, I honestly, I think probably the things that didn't happen to me show the effect because I was working on and am working on such disturbing, horrific material that, you know, I didn't have a nervous breakdown. I didn't become a drug addict. My relationships didn't collapse. So I would say that was God's help.


So let me ask you about that without. I hate asking people what their marriage is because it's just so personal. But you've referred to your husband several times as your partner and friend and spouse and a source of strength. Have you remained aligned with him? Like, this trip you've taken into this brand new world. Have you taken it together?


Totally. I mean, sometimes, like, you know, honey, I can't talk about that now. It's like the weekend. I just want to, like, go for a walk. Totally. He's such a warrior in his having, as I mentioned, his having been in very dangerous situations really helps me. Pardon me. Because a. He's a wonderful strategist. So he'll explain to me kind of what the battlefield is. But also, he, like, when I want to whine and say, you know, I'm tired of this, like, I want to go, I want to stop, he'll say, wars last for years. This is not a battle. It's a war. And the war of independence lasted for years. And it's helpful because I'm not a soldier. I'm not trained as a soldier. So I just want there to be a battle, and then we're done and shopping.


A dramatic climax, and then we can have a cocktail and talk about it. No, I feel the same way. Wow. How inspiring is that?


Oh, I'm so lucky. Yeah.


I was gonna ask you all these policy questions, but I just think what's happened to you personally is so much more interesting than any of that. Have you talked about any of this? The spiritual direction you've taken and all that? Have you talked about it in public?


Interestingly, when I wrote a sub stack about evil and God, that's all people wanted to talk to me about for.


Quite a while because I've had exactly the same experience.




Yes. And I came at it from exactly the same perspective that you did. It's very spooky to hear that. To hear you say that you came at it effectively backwards. Or at least backwards from the way I thought it worked, where you see this negative thing and you ask yourself, well, what is that? It's really not human. It's clearly supernatural. But you don't, no matter how many times you go to church, you don't really believe there's a supernatural realm that acts on the natural world. Crazy, but it clearly is. So I just think that's so interesting. So when you wrote about this on substack or on your point about evil, what did people say in response?


Well, they just wanted, well, the left doesn't talk to me anymore at all, so they didn't say anything, but, and they pretend I don't exist. So that was silence. But that brings up a really interesting point, too, Tucker, because you know how in Exodus, the children, the firstborn of the Egyptians, are taken and the houses of the children of Israel are kind of skipped over where their children live?


Passed over, we might say.


Right, right. Exactly. I've literally, for the last two years, and I haven't said this in public, but I've really seen this thing that can't be explained again, except kind of supernaturally, that the people who don't turn to God in some way haven't been able to hear the very important information that is coming forward about how to protect your family, how to save yourself and the people who have turned to God in some way. Their ears are open.




And they're the ones who are hearing the message about how, well, in my case, how dangerous these injections are. And they've been. And I get these emails, you know, thank you for saving my grandchild. Thank you for saving my daughter in law. It's not me that they should think. It's Amy Kelly who's leading this charge and the volunteers. But nonetheless, I take their point. But what I'm experiencing is half the country who identify as God's people in some way are hearing this life saving information, and half their ears are stopped. They cannot hear it. They can't even hear it. When you say it to them directly.


It'S still like a, that's not, I don't want to pose as a Bible scholar since I'm the opposite of a Bible scholar, but I'm a noticer of patterns. And the line you just used, the words come, but they can't hear them. That is a recurring line totally throughout the entire text so far.


Totally, totally. Well, we just read Exodus, and God said, I will harden Pharaoh's heart. I will make him stubborn. I will make him.


And these horrible things have a litany of disasters, some of them grotesque, and Pharaoh just doesn't get the point. Just let these people go.




Everything will be fine.


Yeah. No, so I can't explain that, but. I'm sorry, what was your. What was your.


I can't remember. I was so absorbed in what you were saying. Oh. My question was, when you describe your journey, I hate that word. I'm so embarrassed to use the word.


It didn't used to be a cliche.


I know, I know, but it is. And I'm trying to rid all cliches from my mouth and heart. Will you describe what happened to you and how your thinking has deepened on this? Did you get a lot of people who say, wow, I had the same experience, yes.


But not the people I used to be closest to. They have no idea what I'm talking about. They think I'm weird. Yes. No. I don't know if they think I'm weird, but no, absolutely. I mean, this is happening across the country.


That's really my question.


Around the world, yes, I do. People say, I'm so glad you're talking about these metaphysical dark forces, because I feel them, too. Or I'm so glad you're. People who never were, who left organized religion behind, totally secular, are feeling. I don't know what to say, an awakening. But it's not like a fake, trite, socially normative awakening. It's like a genuine blossoming of their hearts in ways that it surprised even them. And especially them. Especially them. Yes, I am definitely seeing that. And I guess what I would say, and I'm so glad there's a little bit of hope, because the last few years have been so horrible. But if you wonder, why would humanity be targeted in this way? Because we haven't even gone into what my team has found. The catastrophic. The strokes, the neurological disorders, the paralysis, the arthritic disorders, the sudden deaths, the poisoning of babies, the killing of babies in utero like it's all in the Pfizer documents at industrial scale. And they knew this. Rolling it out, you know, the White House covering up myocarditis in minors in April of 2021, having a freak out communications meeting to cover it up.


Crime after crime after crime. You look at this and think, why would humanity. Why would God abandon humanity in this way and create such a terrible. Why would God let humanity have such a terrible crime committed against it at global scale? But then, now, looking not back, but in the midst of it, I can't think of another circumstance in which the sheep were separated from the goats, in effect, in which you had to choose. Are you going to go along with a crime or are you going to speak up for humanity? Are you going to walk with the devil or Satan or whatever, Baal and Moloch, are you going to walk with God? You know, you couldn't be neutral. You had to choose. And also, you know, this force came at the human body and face, which I do believe is made in the image of God. Like, I literally believe that now. And what would make people think, oh, wow, I'm not going to, you know, this is such a treasure. I've been born into a human body. I have a human life. You know, we have this beautiful planet. We have family. We have, you know, intimacy, closeness, prayer song.


I'm going to cherish that. You know, I'm not going to take that for granted anymore. It's like they're gifts from God. I can't think of another circumstance to wake people up in the way that people are waking up. As horrible as it's been, it's incredible.


How can for people who've made it for the last whatever hour and whatever it's been who want to hear more from you, how can they find it?


Thank you. They can go to Dailyclout IO, which is my news site that helps people engage with democracy. The Pfizer documents, reports are all in the upper left hand corner there for free. They can come to my substack, which is called outspoken, and they can order the Pfizer book and they can also order facing the beast if they like.


Is that sold on Amazon?




For now.


Yes. For now. Yes.


Well, that was kind of not the conversation I expected. It was about 100 times better. And I'm grateful that you came. Nemi Wolf. Thank you.


Thank you, Tucker.
