I still remember it like it was yesterday, the shocking imagery of two planes flying into the Twin Towers one after another as madmen carried out a terror attack that deeply wounded the psyche of countless millions of Americans and many more around the world. The explosion that rocked the world tore the heart out of New York City as 2,606 people perished in a flash and coated the concrete jungle with blood, tears and dust. Forty-nine minutes after the first tower was hit, 229 miles away the Pentagon was attacked. The safety we used to take for granted was eviscerated and replaced with a pervasive dread that gradually morphed into a murmuring angst that still haunts many to this day.
America has never been the same since that fateful Tuesday; normal was shattered as we witnessed our nation’s iconic landmarks crumble. Unable to fully cope, we self-medicated with media, politics and sports. But in the back of our minds, the pains of that day continue to live on and flood our minds whenever a terror attack or a senseless act of mass carnage is splashed across headlines. In a lot of ways, our reaction to the pandemic last year—especially in New York City—was a trigger response as millions of people were forced to relive the horrors of invisible enemies—the Five Burroughs once again turned into a warzone. New Yorkers are as tough as they come but many are coping with PTSD to this day as a consequence of 9/11.
2001 was a year of tribulation for me long before the Twin Towers fell, my father—the man who instilled in me the work ethic that compels me to rise at 5:00 in the morning to work and taught me to be impeccable with my words—was battling for his life after being stricken with stage IV lung cancer. I saw him transform from the rock of our family who worked three and four jobs at a time to provide for his family into a shadow of himself as chemotherapy reduced him to bones. I have never been the same ever since I saw him frantically pulling the tube out of his mouth only to be enveloped by blue lights and alarms as doctors dashed in to save him. My father Fikremariam Million passed away after being in a coma for 12 days on January 4th, 2002.
The memories of the Twin Towers falling on 9/11 only for my father to be felled four months later escaped like a virus from a lab and rushed to the front of my mind this morning. My wife and I decided to travel with our son up to Queens, New York to visit her parents; as irony would have it, my wife grew up in Corona, New York, which is a part of greater Queens. I woke up at 4:00 AM this morning, rather than going back to sleep for another hour, I decided to take a shower, grab my coffee and headed to Harlem. I took the wrong exit and ended up right in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Rather than making a U-turn to head to my preferred destination, I decided to just go where the spirit led me only to end up at a Starbucks 4 miles away from One World Trade Center.
I write these things because I am reminded of how much traumas can change people and alter the makeup of countries. Though losing my dad was the first deep cut, a second cut arrived last year when my mom passed away from Covid-19. At least I was able to be with my dad when he transitioned, that was not the case when my mom took her last breath on May 15, 2020. My wife and I decided to quarantine with her parents last year at the outset of the pandemic; as long as we were going to barricade ourselves indoors, we figured we might as well do so with her mom and dad. A month after we arrived in Queens, I was told the devastating news that my mom had contracted Covid-19. Prevented from visiting her at the ICU, all we could do was watch her as she labored to breathe on an iPad that the nurses were kind enough to procure.
The pains that I harbor, the tears that I cry when I least expect it as a random song or the smell of Ethiopian food reminds me of my parents who are no longer here, are not unique to me. Almost everyone reading this knows intimately the agony of losing a loved one and the helplessness they felt while observing someone close to them battle to stay alive. As I shed tears writing this article, I know many are weeping as they read. Try as hard as we may, there is one thing more certain above death and taxes and that is the sorrows that come for us when we least expect it.
Some pains dim as bigger pains glare and supplant the memories of the past, such is the case with woes of 9/11, my dad’s death, and remembrances from when I was growing up. What is stuck at the forefront of my mind is the despondence that I felt last year while witnessing the Big Apple having a bite taken out of its core by Coronavirus only to have that pestilence visit my family and take my mom along with more than 650,000 Americans and millions of people around the world. The shock of seeing New York City transmute into a war zone is one I never expected to see in the United States. The City of Dreams became a village of nightmares overnight as people grew fearful of neighbors and abandoned the outdoors for the safety of their living rooms.
Scared of a virus we could not see, afraid of what the future held, the vast majority sought the comfort of authority as we listened to public officials without questioning and heeded their advice at all times. We were told to mask up, we did. We were told to socially isolate, we agreed. Businesses were ordered to shut their doors, owners complied without resistance. Doctors were told to intubate Covid-19 patients like my mom and they did as ordered. Seeing horrific images of mass casualties and bodies being carried out on gurneys conditioned me to believe every word of officials like Fauci, Cuomo and De Blasio. Far from thinking they were doing too much, I saw them as modern-day Harriet Tubmans who could deliver us from the bondage of this pandemic.
I’m back in the same city that was the epicenter of Covid-19 and the sense I have now is nothing like the feelings I had last year. Gone is the panic that was intentionally induced by vested interests who have everything to gain by reducing humanity to fear-riddled automatons. Despite our renewed sense of optimism, storm clouds are gathering. While we are trying our hardest to return to a semblance of normalcy, our government—abetted by mainstream media and at the behest of globalist oligarchs—is setting the stage for a national and global despotism the likes of which have never been witnessed in history.

New York City is yet again in the crosshairs as Mayor Bill de Blasio announces a form of medical apartheid in order to reward people who comply and get jabbed and deny freedoms to those who refuse to partake in ongoing medical experiments. Proving people truly do become their names—considering that de Blasio means “one who organizes or plans perfectly”—this neo-fascist mayor is turning into a hybrid of Mengele and Hitler as he peddles medical misinformation and demonizes the “unvaccinated” in order to force people to get injected with a toxic “vaccine” that has claimed almost four times as many people than September 11th.
De Blasio is not the only politician who is resorting to the tactics of segregationists by demanding that private businesses discriminate against people, he is just following the orders of Joe Biden who is intent on fulfilling the wishes of his globalist masters. If you ever doubted the existence of a “New World Order”, the fact that heads of state around the world are literally using the same talking points should dispel all skepticism. Not only are we being governed without consent, we are now being coerced to self-harm by way of mRNA and adenovirus tainted needles.
More than 160,000,000 Americans and billions around the world have already lined up and received the shots after falling victim to psychological warfare that makes MK-Ultra look like child’s play. To truly appreciate how so many people were manipulated into getting injected with “vaccines” that are still in clinical trials and have “specific and significant risk” of causing a deadly condition called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement according to the NIH’s own website, you must take a step back and deconstruct how we got here to begin with.
By now, all but the most die-hard Rachel Maddow viewers understand that Covid-19 was almost certainly a man-made virus. Fauci’s leaked emails confirm that NIH was funding “gain of function” research at the Wuhan Insitute of Virology. In 2019, shortly before the Coronavirus metastasized throughout China and eventually enveloped the world, three scientists at the Wuhan Lab were admitted to the Emergency Room with Coronavirus-like symptoms. A few months before the scientists were infected, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and my alma mater Johns Hopkins University sponsored an initiative called Event 201 in preparation for an eventual pandemic. They gamed out mitigation plans and responses based on a coronavirus that “theoretically emerged” from a pig in Brazil.
Everything we are seeing now, from quarantines, shuttering businesses, silencing anyone who dares to question “vaccines” that supposedly had not been created to using terms like “trusted messengers” were all meticulously planned during Event 201. Don’t take my word for it, check out the video above that shows the highlights of Event 201. Keep in mind that the dry run took place in October of 2019, a full three months before patient zero was diagnosed with Coronavirus in China. Just like Project for a New American Century called for a “catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor” that would compel the American public to support a war against Iraq four years before 9/11, Event 201 was preparing the grounds for Covid-19 while the rest of us were distracted by the circus of Trump and the carnival of Democrats.
What they planned for eventually occurred. Act I was creating hysteria by inflating the Covid-19 count using PCR cycles so high that it produced a significant number of false-positives and traumatizing us with pictures and videos of dead bodies stacking up in morgues. Act II was pretending that the “vaccines” were developed in record time thanks to the wonders of technology and human ingenuity even though John Mattison, the Chief Medical Information Officer of Kaiser Permanente, admitted on a podcast a full two months before Operation Warp Speed was announced by Trump that they injected the first patient with an mRNA “vaccine” at their DC office.
We are now witnessing Act III as they stoke fears over the Delta, Delta Plus and Lambda variants even though PCR tests cannot distinguish between the original strain and the mutations we are being told are the majority of infections. The only way to decipher if an infection is caused by the alpha strain or a variant is through genomic sequencing which requires sophisticated tests and lab work. You can thus discount EVERY story that hypes up the delta, lambda or soon-to-be omega variant as propaganda that Joseph Goebbels would be proud of.
.@thetribunechd I dare you to “fact-check” this statement: PCR tests cannot distinguish between alpha, delta, lambda or whatever the next BS variant is. So tell us how you arrive at the conclusion that the majority of new infections are variants? We will wait. #ADEsmokingGun https://t.co/dA0axpDSE7

There will be no Act IV, if we do not act soon to resist this tyranny, it will be curtains for our freedoms. It is not an accident that I find myself in New York City at this exact moment, I’ve been hearing chatter for the past 24 hours that there is a massive protest in the works to push back against the despotism of Bill de Blasio. As goes New York, I hope America will follow. Whether you are pro-“vaccine” or pro-informed consent is inconsequential, if the ruling class succeeds in destroying liberty in order to ensure security, we will lose both and our children will suffer the consequences.
For the record, I abhor bloodshed and I am not advocating a violent revolution. All revolutions of the gun are bankrupt for they give birth to the very despotism they were waged against. The only reason we nearly 8 billion people are being oppressed by a fraction of humanity is because we keep letting them divide us and then conditioning us to defeat ourselves. Now, more than ever, we must put aside our difference and unite to defend our common interests. I learned by enduring nearly two years of homelessness starting in 2015 to value unity above individual grievances, I pray everyone arrives at this wisdom without experiencing the mindnumbing agonies I lived through while I was living in shelters.Once hit by planes flown by terrorists and hit again last year by bioweapons created by mad scientists, #NewYorkCity will not give in to fascists. #RiseUpNYC and lead the charge on behalf of freedom!

The same way the 9/11 Commission conducted a farce of an investigation in order to sweep the truth under the rug, our government is yet again lying about the origins of Covid-19 and the safety and efficacy of the “vaccines”. Of course, this is nothing new for them; they lied about WMDs in Iraq, they lied about the Great Fleecing of 2008 as they gave cover to bankers while screwing over homeowners and they lied about Flint, Michigan. The only time our government speaks the truth is when they talking to their globalist owners behind closed doors. As much as they commit atrocities around the world and right here in America protected by state secrets that Julian Assange started to expose, I truly believe in my heart that soon enough what they do in the dark will be revealed in the light.
I dedicate this article to every man, woman and child who perished on September 11th, 2001. May your souls rest eternally and may your families who still mourn in your absence find healing where they are hurting at the moment.
I write this for every man, woman and child who was murdered at the hands of a virus that was man-made by mad scientists in Wuhan and funded by malicious bureau rats in DC, London and beyond. I also write this for every mom-and-pop shop that was driven into bankruptcy while mega-corporations like Amazon and Walmart made record profits. I likewise write this article for every restaurant owner who spent countless nights awake wondering how he or she would make it through the month while Uber was taking a chunk out of their profits. I write this for all people around the world who were tormented by draconian lockdowns, uneven making mandates and manipulated to get jabbed without informed consent. May God mete out justice and may His will be done.
Here is to New York City, may the city that never sleeps wake up from the coma that was induced last year. Rise up NYC and lead the charge on behalf of everything we hold near and dear as Americans. New York City was the first place I lived in when my family and I were forced to flee my birth land Ethiopia due to the tyranny of Marxist thugs who leveraged a crisis in order to gain power only to commit genocide against 500,000 men, women and children within two years of gaining power. May my new home America refuse to follow in the footsteps of Ethiopia and instead fiercely resist totalitarianism before we too cry the tears Ethiopians cried 40 years ago. May God bless America and may God bless all of humanity.

After much reflection and prayer, I have decided to stop asking people to contribute money to me personally at the bottom of my articles. God rescued me from homelessness, sent me an angel by the name of Bethlehem who is now my wife and blessed both of us with a son who is the light of our world, we don’t need the money other than the contributions that some give to the Ghion Journal to defray the costs of running the website. I ask you to help others who need it. If you want to contribute to us, I just ask you to redirect that money and give to homeless shelters like the one I used to live at six years ago or give the money to homeless people directly. You don’t have to worry about what they will do with that money, your charity ends by giving it.
If you want to support me and the Ghion Journal beyond financial contributions, I just ask that you share this article widely and to do so not only on social media but on text, email and most importantly, voice conversations and in-person meetings. As evidenced by the Biden administration working directly with Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube to silence us, we must go low tech to overcome their high-tech censorship. Let us return to what allowed us to thrive instead of shriveling behind firewalls. Thank you.
