I don't know where the time goes, I remember my adults telling me this would happen as a kid. Yet I am still astonished at how quickly things are moving.
Every minute is precious so I am going to try to respect your time and cut straight to the meat of the issues.
What you will see:
H4ML Near Me Update:
Did you know that we meet the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm EST?
We do! Getting together with people who have similar thoughts on Medical Liberty is refreshing & has become a staple for many of our members.
There are two ways to join us, online or in person!
To join online you will need to pre-register for the Zoom meeting here.
Bloomington & Fort Wayne met in person!
H4ML Near Me is such an important part of our mission! Developing a local community will result in some of the greatest changes in our politics and preserving our freedoms, but more on that later.
We would love to see you at one of the two locations above, but better yet, help bring H4ML Near You! (See what I did there 😂)
Learn more about what it takes on our Local Partners page.
Do you want text alerts about H4ML Near Me Meetings in your area?
Text 260-286-0988 the name of your county to get updates. For example, if you live in Adams County, you would text “Adams County”
If you live in Wayne County, you would text “Wayne County”
It is no secret that the May primaries were a bit of a shock. I would be lying if I didn't' say that Liberty took a hit in Indiana.
The loss of both Representatives Curt Nisly & John Jacob was a blow we knew was a possibility but did not expect.
The establishment is rejoicing.
They think they accomplished something big…
We will be working on an update to the Legislator Line Up to reflect liberty candidates for the general election in November. We will send reminders out closer to the election.
Please take time to review who will be on your ballot and ask them to complete our 2022 Candidate survey.
Candidates committed to Medical Liberty
The following candidates include those who have won the primary and have returned a 100% Candidate Survey.
Many of them are likely to face a challenger from the other party or an independent.
Candidates in RED are incumbents whose voting record does not align as closely with Medical Liberty as we would like, however, they did return a 100% candidate survey. More on this later…
These candidates have all agreed to help secure your medical liberty, but they are going to need some support and accountability. Being a legislator is not an easy job.
Since winning the primary each of these candidates has been battered by any number of groups asking them to write or support legislation they propose. They will be tempted by other groups and the establishment to focus on other issues or betray their commitment to Medical Liberty.
It's up to the citizens of each district to communicate with their legislators, making sure they know YOU are watching and will do your best to communicate your needs with them. They also need to know YOU will be holding them accountable for bad choices in legislation.
We will need to keep a very close eye on the legislators marked in red. These legislators may be increasingly more susceptible to the influence of the establishment but they have made a commitment to Hoosiers.
They signed a paper asserting their commitment to your Medical Liberty. They must uphold their word!
We have launched our WatchDogs program. Ultimately, our goal is that we will have 3 WatchDogs for each legislator.
WatchDogs will be in regular communication with the legislator in their district. This is how we build accountability as an organization and it can't be done without YOU.
We are working on detailing some steps just for guidance but the process will be simple centering around monthly communications varying between email, phone, and in person.
H4ML will support you sharing educational information and updates on the bills. Time commitment is around 1 hour a month.
You can start today, simply by contacting your candidate and asking them to take our survey if they haven't yet. You can check the list above to verify. Then just let them know that Medical Liberty is your top priority and you will remain in touch with them.
The most important thing to remember is that you are NOT to become friends with your legislators. You are there to hold them accountable, this is a "business relationship."
When you start thinking that you want to be friend with your legislator, look at the image at the top of this section and ask yourself, “Which do I want to be?”

There is a huge buzz surrounding the WHO Pandemic Treaty and International Health Regulation amendments. These are two separate items and many people think that they are the same thing.
Watch the video I made earlier this month here to learn a bit more.
Here are a few key points about the TREATY.
Let's break this down a little further. The WHO is going to keep tabs on this and I wouldn't be surprised if this does proceed forward. All of us need to be talking about this and how it impacts our future.
We experienced this type of structure with COVID. What they are proposing is not a new idea, they just want to “lock countries into” continuing the behaviors they exhibited with COVID.
If we are keeping this short then we can skip to the 2nd to last bullet point there. They recognize there is a need for years worth of political, financial, and societal commitment.
This means that this is a slow growing threat requiring INFRASTRUCTURE.
They recognize that this is a big commitment.
They are telling us the weaknesses.
WE EXPLOIT THIS!
But more on exploitation after we discuss the amendments to the International Health Regulations…
International Health Regulations Amendments.
This deals with a lot of the same things addressed in the WHO Treaty however in this case the amendments were brought forward by the secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). You can read the amendments here.
Again, if you haven't watched the video I made earlier this month I encourage you to watch it here. This is the same link as under the treaty portion.
Read more from Diane Miller & send an email to your federal level legislators here.
In short here is the break down of what is happening in the amendments:
When we are looking at these different global initiatives one running theme we see is the need for infrastructure. If they cannot build this out and control the local level, none of them can be carried out.
However, these initiatives are being brought forward by our agency officials. We have also been posting on our facebook page about how the CDC is looking at restructuring with a focus on improving communication and resources in the “under served” areas. Including greater funding to provide better resources, data collection, and “equity."
You have to ask yourself, how many of the under served areas will coincide with the more conservative responses to the pandemic?
During the past two years we have seen how these conservative “outliers" have pulled the rest of the country from the depths of draconian measures.
It is really a simple principle, the extremes define the middle. If the CDC, WHO, & global leaders are able to eliminate the extremes the middle is quickly pulled into the draconian landscape.
Our job is to hold the line, to secure our freedom loving counties and pull the extremes farther into the land of Liberty.
This issue is BLOWING up right now. Everyone is up in arms and honestly every time we turn around it seems like there is another emergency demanding our attention.
Threats to Medical Liberty are not going anywhere. We are going to battle this for years to come. We need to be thinking about how to preserve our energy and avoid alarm burnout.
As we progress through the next several years you are going to see multiple different opinions on each issue. Some are going to be dire, some will be frightening, and others will just make you cautious.
Variety is normal and healthy.
Difference of opinion within the movement does not mean division.
Difference of opinions within the movement just mean that we have free thinkers, it means that those in leadership positions are THINKING through the issues and not just giving a prescribed response.
I hope to see varied opinions.
The role of a leader is to to bring attention to issues, provide actionable items that create change, and maintain focus. We are facing a long fight so it must be controlled chaos to achieve that.
An enthusiastic activist would take the time to listen to a couple opinions and try to decipher what makes the most sense to them.
Even easier, they can look at the resolutions proposed by differing opinions.
If the resolution is the same then you can act quickly. There is no need to split hairs to see “who is right."
If the resolutions differ it can help to ask yourself a series of questions to find a resolution.
You might consider:
During this process be mindful of:
Holcomb's Public Health Commission
This is where it all comes together.
I mentioned earlier how infrastructure and local control over politics is the key to stopping the big machine…
Well, as it turns out, our governor is part of the machine.
Or at least a minion of the machine. We have talked briefly about Holcomb's Public Health Commission (PHC) and how the goal is to centralize the Indiana State Department of Health and to bring greater health outcomes and equity. Essentially this PHC is just building the infrastructure that will support the CDC & WHO initiatives.
You can watch a really great video on the PHC here.
The day of our last meeting the PHC met and it was interesting to hear the way that the wording changed. Obviously, this is something we will continue to watch.
Right now we know that they are working to centralize the county health departments. Doing this will require the support or permission of the County Commissioners.
Our job is to get to the county commissioners and let them know we do not want centralization, and that THEY are responsible for the appointment of a County Health Commissioner. So they WILL be held accountable for unsavory actions by these un-elected people.
The PHC will be meeting again in both June and July where they will accept public comments. We will be issuing a call to action about this soon.
So if the PHC is the "lynch pin" of all these other initiatives how do we fight back?
It is doing all the things we have discussed the past two years.
The responsibility and the POWER are ours. We just have to follow through.
We are conducting some research to create greater awareness around VAERS. But we need your help.
HEALTHCARE WORKERS are needed to complete this survey. We are hoping to get a broad reaching sample and would really appreciate if you would put this out in your circles. We need to assess the knowledge base of the main stream health care workers, and unfortunately it seems that that has become increasingly more difficult for me. 😉
Please save the image below and share it far and wide through text message, email, or on your social sites. There is NO need to credit or link back to H4ML. It may be better if you refrained from doing so.
Thank you for taking the time to read this monstrous issue. We certainly have a lot to do, but we are making it happen. I truly appreciate each and every one of you for the way you have stepped up!

P.S. There will be multiple volunteer opportunities coming. Please stay tuned, we need your skills and talents. If you are unable to volunteer your time please consider becoming a member and joining the effort through monthly financial contribution.
P.S.S. I want to leave you with a closing thought. “People contemplating a visit to the past worry about radical changes to the present. But people in the present don't think that small decisions or actions can radically change the future for the better.” I don't know where this thought originated but I feel it is worth sharing.
What small decisions can you make to create radical change in the future?
Ashley Grogg RN-MSN sharing insights, tips, and updates on Medical Liberty throughout the Hoosier state.
