Welcome to Main Street, Hanover, New Hampshire, home of Dartmouth College, established in 1769.
This is an old file photo but the buildings look the same.
This little garden spot is Dirt Cowboy Cafe, established 1993, and it sits at the top of Main Street. While not quite so old as Dartmouth College, nearly three decades of top-notch-coffee (and amazing lemon danishes) have made Dirt Cowboy almost as much of a Hanover institution.
This is Thomas Guerra, Dirt Cowboy's owner. Notice the early spring daffodils? This forces me to confess how long I have been meaning to write this story; but it also shows everyone what a special ornament the cafe is to Main Street. The flower carts outside change with the season.
There's something even more special inside -- something you will not find anywhere else around.
Come on in and take a look.
From the flavor shots on the shelf to the pastries behind glass to the beans in burlap bags to the deep and rich aroma (you'll have to take my word on that but you can order your own here), you might think you're looking at the typical chi-chi coffee shop that college towns depend on for their caffeinated sustenance.
But what's that behind the counter, above Guerra's head? No, not the Espresso Bar options or Hot Beverages menu, but that blonde with the dead eyes. Why, it's Deborah Birx!
On December 15, 2020, she told ABC: "This is one of the most highly effective vaccines we have in our infectious disease arsenal."
However, on July 22, 2022, she told Fox: These vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines."
Birx lied, people died.
But wait a minute, hold on. This is Dartmouth, this is Hanover, where the "covid" "vaccine" is still king, where the monkey pox vaccine is offered to "eligible students," where faculty, staff, and students to this day are vaxxed and boosted within 30 days of CDC-ordained eligibility.
Catching Birx out as a liar on an Ivy League town capuccino menu? Why, that's almost as bad as criticizing St. Anthony Fauci himself! (More on that below.)
After a bit, the menu screen changes. Debby-Downer's face is gone, and epigrams appear from a pantheon of luminaries, past and present.
In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
-- Galileo Galilei.
Trust yourself, not "the science."
Another quotation from Galileo, after being forced to recant his assertion that the earth moves around the sun.
"Eppur si muove."
("And yet, it moves.")
Defiance in the face of the coercive state.
Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless or corrupt. And a citizen who barters with such a state shares in its corruption and lawlessness.
-- Mohatma Gandhi
Clearly, this is all more bracing than coffee, if any of the college kids at the counter are paying attention. Now, take another look at the photo above. What's behind the guy in the Patagonia t-shirt, just above the shelves lined with bags of fresh roasted coffee beans?
It may be hard to believe your eyes (and, alas, rubbing them won't change the fuzzy focus), but, yes, those really are copies of The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Or, as The Dartmouth newspaper put it in its story on same, "by anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Robert F. Kennedy Jr." What more sure-fire way to trigger mentally locked down and very recently social-distanced Ivy League elites than to display the NYT-ignored but NYT-best-selling expose of evil itself? Guerra knows he lost a few customers, at least at the beginning, but he was resolved to provide people with an opportunity to expand their understanding of events.
Over two million copies of RFK Jr.'s Fauci book have been sold, but it is not to be found anywhere else in Hanover, NH -- and that includes the college library and town bookshop.
But the book alone is not what makes Dirt Cowboy Cafe unique. Rather, it is dedication to presenting the censored side of a life-or-death debate that we as a country have never had over the rise of the biosecurity state. Of course, debate was the first thing to go under the new regime unveiled by Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Government and Big Media. Eites, such as those who teach and study and buy coffee at Dartmouth, were and remain willing accomplices to this assault on free thought.
Since Dirt Cowboy is Tom Guerra's livelihood and not a debating society, it took courage to make his cafe an outpost of dissenting ideas. Note well that the resource-rich liberal arts campus across the street never sought to foster one. That such an ideas-vaccuum existed -- and probably exists in every other American college town -- is further proof of the strangled state of public debate today. Not that we need further proof.
In recognition and gratitude of Guerra's efforts, Robert Kennedy Jr. sent him an inscribed book, which is also on display.
More ideas to rock the town flash across the coffee menu screen:
"[W]e must ... be alert to the danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite."
-- Dwight Eisenhower, Farewell Address, 1961
There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.
-- Nelson Mandela

One of the great lessons of the past five centuries in Europe and America is this: acute crises contribute to boosting the power of the state. It's always been the case and there is no reason why it should be different in the Covid-19 pandemic.
-- Klaus Schwab
Also, there is this very personal message from Tom Guerra:
I knew that Tom had been coerced into getting the shot by a town official -- a colossal outrage in itself. But I didn't know that at some point between daffodil time and late-summer, he was stricken and rushed to the hospital.
"I trusted, I lined up, I did my part. When I was hospitalized with a life-threatenting illness, however, I was labeled an anti-vaxxer."
By the time I got a chance to ask Tom about his near-fatal experience, which he believes was linked to his coerced vaccination, his health crisis had fortunately passed, and he was clearly on the mend. Once again, though, it is Dirt Cowboy Cafe leading the Dartmouth community to broach this last taboo, a form of censorship and self-censorhip so ingrained across the country that the overall impact is akin to the lobotomization of the nation. I refer to the taboo-topic of covid-injection caused injury, disease, miscarriage and death.
The unspoken, censored fact is, the politics of covid are flesh and blood.
Who doesn't know by now that "sudden" death, "unexpected" death is all around us? But no one in the public square, very much including the college green, dares to question whether there might be a link between the rise of such tragic deaths and the rollout of covid shots. (When I say "no one," I mean no one with political or other institutional power and influence.)
Just today, The Dartmouth newspaper reported the death of Luke Veenhuis, a 30-year-old engineering researcher. The cause of Veenhuis's death is unknown, the story goes. According to current convention, there is no and, likely, will be no speculation as to whether experimental covid injections -- which, as part of the Dartmouth community this young man most likely took -- played any role in his untimely demise.
Maybe they didn't. Obviously, every unexpected death is not a covid-vaccine-death. Who would suggest such a thing? But that doesn't clear the shot as a possible cause in such deaths, either. It doesn't mean people -- reporters -- should stop asking questions. Keeping silent on this painful topic, which many serious-minded researchers are now thinking of in terms of genocide, is akin to bludgeoning the mental faculties. What has happened to our minds? They have been closed. What has happened to our quest to know the truth? It has been cancelled.
The story continues:
The announcement of Veenhuis’ death comes two days after the College set a Day of Caring for Oct. 21, during which all classes will be canceled to “create space to process the grief of our community losses, time for reflection and an opportunity to prioritize our mental health and well-being.” Veenhuis’ death is the seventh loss of a Dartmouth community member in two months and the third announced by the College within the last eight days.
