Pro-Freedom Group Holds Covert

St. Patrick’s Day Party in Augusta


Pledges Support to Free Maine PAC to Help With

Their Citizen’s Initiative to Reign in Governor’s

Emergency Powers in Maine

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 24, 2021


AUGUSTA, Maine - Around 40 members and supporters of the pro-freedom group, Beacon For Sovereignty met at an undisclosed “speakeasy” in Maine’s capitol city for a March 17 celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

   Unlike the alcoholic speakeasies of the 1930’s prohibition era, this modern day version allowed people to engage in the act of exercising their constitutionally enumerated right to peaceably assemble during the governor’s arbitrary and unlawful criminalization of that right during the media-contrived COVID-19 scamdemic.

   At the event, the group announced their support to Free Maine PAC in their quest to put a Citizen’s Initiative on the 2022 ballot in Maine which would restrict future governors’ ability to arbitrarily extend a “state of emergency” without a two thirds vote of the legislature and citizen input.

Citizens Tax Group Calls for 25% Reduction

in Property Taxes in Fort Fairfield


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 10, 2021


   A member of the Citizen's Tax Group (CTG) of Fort Fairfield told the Fort Fairfield Journal that Councilman, Scott Smith's speech at the February 17 council meeting has given many people hope that all is not lost for the taxpayers in the ongoing discussion about Fort Fairfield's excessive increase in property taxes for many taxpayers in town.   “There was loud applauding from the whole audience - the only reaction from the audience during the entire meeting,” said the CTG member.  “He spoke out at length about the ways that there were to trim costs and not lose services.  We just have to do things a little differently.  We are aware that he has worked hard on this by talking to several citizens and others that are experts in their fields.  We are told that the Council doesn’t want to discuss those options and have said that he is just causing turmoil in the community.  Mr. Smith has really gone out on a limb to help the taxpayers.  Such a wonderful model for the other Council members who might not know how to do this!”

FFHS Class of '67 Publishes Book

Featuring its 45 Military Veterans

The Fort Fairfield High School Class of 1967 announces that it will be publishing a book, Honoring Their Service: Stories of Fort Fairfield High School Class of 1967 Military Veterans in November.  The 300+ page book containing individual stories of the forty-five classmates who served in the military will also include many photographs, maps, timelines, tables, as well as commentaries on the breadth of the experiences gained by these veterans. It also will contain an overview of the history of their hometown and its public educational system and how they and the Cold War shaped the veterans’ young lives.  The book is dedicated to LCPL David Cox who was killed in action in Vietnam in May 1968.

   Copies of the book are now available at One of a Kind Flower & Gift Shop on Main Street, Fort Fairfield.  The price for hardcover is $62.00 and the price for soft cover is $40.00.






Maine D.O.T. signs were dotted up and down Interstate 95 in Maine every five miles or so on both Northbound and Southbound sides on March 15, 2021 spouting various government propaganda memes, such as; “KEEP MASKING UP; WE’RE ALMOST THERE”.  This advice is from the same governor who told us she would need two weeks of masks to “Flatten the Curve” a year ago, but has conjured up one arbitrary excuse after another to force people to wear those silly, ridiculous and completely ineffective face masks for an entire year with no end in sight under the guise of Emergency Powers. Face masks have been elevated by Governor Mills to a religious sacrament based entirely on faith since there is no scientific evidence that the surgical and cloth face masks stop or even slow respiratory virus transmission in a community setting.  The dreaded COVID-19 coronavirus has been found to have a fatality rate similar to seasonal flu, and primarily affects the elderly with compromised immune systems in nursing homes which renders these face mask mandates in a community setting completely irrelevant at this point.  Given the people’s willingness to continue giving propaganda placement like this power with their acquiescence, it wouldn’t be surprising to one day soon find some Orwellian statements like “War is Peace” and “Slavery is Freedom” being emblazoned on our Maine D.O.T. signs.

Governor Mills is NOT Following the

Science in her COVID Response


New CDC Report Reveals Face Masks Reduced COVID-19 Cases and Death Growth Rates an

Average of Only 1.32 Percent


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 10, 2021


AUGUSTA, Maine - While the mantra of the left with regard to COVID-19 has been to “follow the science,” what the science actually shows is that the crown jewel of the Democrats’ COVID strategy - mandatory face masks in a community setting - simply does not work. 

   Maine’s Democrat governor, Janet “Big Sister” Mills has mandated face coverings in public with no exceptions since mid-December but there was still a massive surge in cases.  Now, the U.S. CDC has released a report that says what we already knew: those mask mandates only reduced cases and deaths growth by an average of 1.32 percent.  Yet, Big Sister plans on continuing her face mask mandate in perpetuity; the science be damned.

   In their March 12, 2021 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the U.S. CDC published the findings of a study conducted on state-issued mask mandates and allowing on-premises dining with regard to COVID-19 case and death growth rates.1

   The CDC researchers found that during March 1 - December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 of the 3,142 U.S. counties.  The report noted, “Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease in daily COVID-19 case growth rates 1-20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7 and 1.8 percentage points 21-40, 41-60, 61-80 and 81-100 days, respectively, after implementation.”

WHO Finally Issues New, Stricter Guidelines on Use of PCR Tests for COVID-19


Warns against tests being too sensitive and advises a second test, with symptoms, to confirm a positive case

By:  David Deschesne

January 27, 2021

   In response to governments relying too heavily on “positive” PCR tests for COVID-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) released new guidance on the use of the tests with more stringent use of those tests recommended.  The stricter guidelines, which were intended to cut down on the number of false - or non-infectious - positive COVID-19 cases, were coincidentally released to the public on January 20, 2021 - inauguration day in the U.S.

   Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, governments relied on a single RT-PCR test to determine if a person is infected and contagious with the COVID-19 coronavirus, or not.  The extreme sensitivity of these tests at detecting virus particles and RNA makes them unsuitable for diagnostic purposes because of the number of people who may show the presence of a viral particle even if it is a non-infectious, inactive viral fragment.

39 Year-Old Mother Dead from COVID-19 Vaccine


   Kassidi Kurill, a healthy 39-year old mother and surgical technician for several local plastic surgeons in Utah, took the Moderna RNA vaccine as part of her job and died four days after receiving the second dose.

   Kassidi felt ill, but her sister said the family was not overly worried because “everyone from her work had flu-like symptoms, so we thought that was normal.”

   Three people in their 80s also died in Utah shortly after receiving the shots.


 European Countries Stop COVID-19 Vaccine


March 24, 2021 -   Austria has suspended its roll-out of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine after a 49-year-old nurse died “as a result of severe coagulation disorders,” and a 35-year-old nurse developed a pulmonary embolism following the COVID injections. Both nurses reportedly worked at the Zwettl clinic in Lower Austria province.

   Earlier this month the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency reported 244 deaths and 157,637 injuries in the UK following injections of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

  In addition to Austria, Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Luxemborg, Latvia, Iceland and Italy have all reportedly  stopped their plans to use the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.




Deschesne Self-Publishes First Book in Paperback


Fort Fairfield Journal editor/publisher, David Deschesne has published his first book in paperback entitled, In the Beginning: Reconciling Quantum Physics with the Biblical Story of Creation.

   The book started as a series of editorials published in Fort Fairfield Journal in 2014 - 2015 which looks at the Biblical story of Creation through the lens of quantum physics instead of the literal/historical perspective most establishment religious organizations use today.

   From the book description on the back cover,  “Quantum physics is the study of waves and particles that are smaller than the size of what we perceive as atoms.  In the realm of protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks and neutrinos, scientists have found that what we perceive as a solid, physical reality is made up mostly of empty space.  Solid, liquid, gas and even light are all constructs built by our conscious mind as it perceives from the infinite sea of probability waves a reality that we believe to be tangible and separate from us when in fact it appears to all be in our minds.  The ancient Egyptians called this "sea," Nu, out of which all creation sprang forth.  The Hebrews called it, mayim.

   Quantum physics has its waves and in the opening of Genesis there is a lot of talk about water.  Taken literally as liquid H2O the story makes little sense.  But, when one delves into the symbolic use of the word in Hebrew, mayim, which also reaches back to ancient Egypt and their belief systems, it appears that the "waters" is referring to that sea of probability waves out of which all is  constructed for us to experience.  Quantum Physics has shown there is no time, space or tangible solids external to the conscious observer - they are all constructs of the mind.  This is the realm where God - or the Divine Mind - exists.  This book explains these concepts in practical, layman terms most solid readers will be able to grasp.  For those with an inquisitive, open mind this will be an intriguing analysis of the two fields of study - quantum physics and the Bible.”

    The 184 page book, which features two parts: a primer in Quantum Physics in the first part and the central thesis in the second; an index; appendix and bibliography, is printed and bound and self-published by Deschesne in Fort Fairfield, Maine in order to bypass the editorial control and censorship extant in so many woke book publishers today.

   Over six years in the making, the book was finalized in September, 2019, reprint permission from cited works received over the spring/summer of 2020 and the copyright application submitted in December. 

   Rather than approach the Creation story in Genesis as a literal/historical account, Deschesne shows how it can be viewed from a scientific perspective with all of the rich imagery of the original Hebrew seeming to correlate metaphorically with the fundamentals of quantum physics that have only been unveiled to the scientific community over the past one hundred years.

    The book is available at Bookmart, in Fort Fairfield for $15.95.  Mail orders are being accepted for those outside the area.  Send $20.00 cash, check or money order to Fort Fairfield Journal, 252 Main Street, Fort Fairfield, Maine 04742.  Contact David Deschesne via email: david@fortfairfieldjournal.com for more information.

Texas, Mississippi Reopening.

No Face Masks Required!

   Republican Governor Greg Abbott of Texas issued a new executive order that rescinded most of the previous executive orders regarding Covid-19 policies, and all businesses may reopen to capacity. He also ended the statewide mask mandate.

   Florida was the first to reopen and rescind mask mandates, to the chagrin of the leftists in the establishment media who predicted catastrophic death numbers.  However, after they reopened Florida has had less cases of COVID-19 and deaths per capita than California, who remained under one form of lockdown or another - and dictatorial mask mandate - throughout the pandemic.

   “So today, I’m issuing a new executive order that rescinds most of the earlier executive orders,” Abbott said. “Effective next Wednesday, all businesses of any type are allowed to open 100%….also, I am ending the statewide mask mandate.  Under no circumstance can someone be punished for not wearing a mask,” Abbott said from Lubbock.

   In addition to Texas, Mississippi also reversed their COVID-19 executive orders and is reopening to full capacity without mask mandates.  The University of Alabama has announced a return to normal academic practice and schedules, with full stadiums in the Fall. 

   Effective March 19 the state of Connecticut is lifting all capacity limits on restaurants, retail, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation, gyms, museums, offices & houses of worship.


Dems Seek to Strip Nuke Codes from President


DISTRICT of CRIMINALS-Democrat US Representatives Jimmy Panetta and Ted Lieu are leading a group of 31 House Democrats who have requested Joe Biden to renounce his sole authority as “president” to launch nuclear weapons. The pair suggested alternatives that included oversight by the vice president and speaker of the House, certifications from the Secretary of Defense that the strike order was valid, as well as certification from the Attorney General that it was legal, consultation with a permanent council of congressional leaders, and a formal declaration of war by Congress, which is the Constitutional option.

   Biden’s cognitive abilities have been questioned, and Democrats fear allowing him sole discretion over launching nuclear weapons.

   If the President gives up his autonomy that means a coterie of leftist politicians will be in charge of launching nuclear strikes, or bureaucratically delaying them with partisan bickering as the U.S. absorbs a first strike from another nuclear power.


U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Final Election Fraud Cases


High Court Becoming Increasingly Politicized and Irrelevant


   The United States Supreme Court refused to review the Pennsylvania 2020 Election cases.

   The court made the announcement on Monday morning, thus completing their trend to irrelevancy in the history of American Jurisprudence.

   Justices Alito, Gorsuch, and Thomas dissented from the denial.

   Thomas argued that the court should look at the cases to resolve whether non-legislators, like election officials or courts, have any power to set election rules.  In his dissenting opinion, Thomas wrote, “These cases provide us an ideal opportunity to address just what authority non-legislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle.  The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”

   The U.S. Constitution vests the power to set election law exclusively with the state legislatures.  There is no authority for courts or local election officials to change those rules to allow for mail-in ballots, non-signature ballots or other quirky and sketchy vote-altering processes that have not been approved by the respective state legislature.

   On Monday, following their inaction from last week, the US Supreme Court rejected without comment or explanation, lingering 2020 election challenges by Attorney Sidney Powell in Arizona and Wisconsin.

   The Supreme Court refused to secure the integrity of the US elections.

   Later on Monday night Attorney Sidney Powell released a statement on the refusal of the court to hear the election fraud cases.

   Sidney Powell says the ruling completes the implosion of each of our three branches of government into the rubble of the sinkhole of corruption.

   She said that the Court’s rejection is an absolute tragedy for the Rule of Law, the future of what was a Republic, and all freedom-loving people around the world.

How COVID-19 Lockdowns were Designed to Usher In a World Where Private Property and Small Business will be Obliterated and Globalist Oligarchs in Control of All Wealth

Fort Fairfield Journal, December 30, 2020


   Under the guise of addressing the elusive and non-scientifically provable “climate change,” oligarchs and left wing politicians are using the contrived COVID-19 crisis as a planned and orchestrated move to shift the global economy away from private property and private business to one built on the wealthy elites owning everything and the general public being forced to rent from them whatever products or property they need at the time.

46 Nursing Home Residents Dead in Spain After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine


Fort Fairfield Journal, February 24, 2021

The Nuestra Señora del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary) nursing home is reeling due to mass deaths after a recent COVID-19 mRNA vaccine program there.

   All residents and workers at the facility received the first dose of Pfizer mRNA in early January, according to Spainish media outlet,  ABC de Sevilla. Most residents became extremely ill shortly after the shots. It is believed many came down with COVID-19, despite being “vaccinated against it.”

   The Andalusian Health Service reported that at least 46 residents have died since January. For perspective, Our Lady of the Rosary has a maximum capacity of 145 residents. The Junta de Andalucía (regional government) intervened in early February to curtail the death count. But people continued dying.  Spain’s Ministry of Health is now in charge of mitigation of the COVID-19 deaths.

Maine Towns Abandoning Face Mask Mandates


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 10, 2021


   The town of Paris, Maine recently adopted a resolution that stated they would not be enforcing Governor Mills’ face mask mandate in their town, due to its conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

   People and businesses who want to continue virtue signal by wearing the largely ineffective cloth and surgical face masks will still be allowed to do so if they choose.

   Carroll Plantation, Steuben and Frankfort have reportedly passed similar face mask resolutions. 


Left Wing News Ignoring COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects -

Until They Need to Blame them on Trump


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 24, 2021


   With over 1,500 Americans dead from the experimental COVID-19 vaccines so far, and tens of thousands suffering debilitating side effects, the establishment left wing news organizations are remaining deafeningly silent on these facts as they continue to prop up Joe Biden’s promotion of the vaccines.  However, like the nursing home deaths in New York and Michigan caused by those states’ Democrat governors last year, the media knows about the problems but is not reporting on them until it becomes politically expedient for their side.

   It has been speculated that if Donald Trump makes a return for the 2024 presidential election, or becomes an imposing force for that wing of the Republican party to benefit Congress or the Senate, the media will then roll out the reports of vaccine deaths and adverse effects in order to blame them on Trump and reduce his political effectiveness.

   If this is the case, then Trump will be rightly blamed because his “warp speed” vaccines were developed too quickly and tested to briefly to be able to understand exactly how they will impact humans before being released to the world population.   However, in waiting to release the information that could save the lives of thousands of people, the left wing news is willing to sacrifice thousands of Americans on the altar of political expediency to advance their goals of societal domination.
