Syte Reitz

The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world…….

Joan (Syte) Ruth Reitz, age 70, died peacefully Tuesday early evening, October 11 at St. Mary’s Hospital with her family at her side. She had recently been diagnosed with cancer and contracted pneumonia as a complication of her treatment. Joan, better known as Syte (a Lithuanian nickname meaning ‘little sister’) to her friends and family, was born on December 23, 1951 in Brooklyn, NY to her parents Albin and Ruta Strazdis. She grew up in Queens, NY, and attended St. Benedict Labre School and later Marymount Catholic High School in Manhattan. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from State University of New York – Stony Brook, then went on to earn her PhD in Biochemistry from Rutgers University, with postdoctoral studies at Princeton University, eventually beginning an Assistant Professorship in Biochemistry at Oakland University in Michigan.

During her time at SUNY – Stony Brook, a young man approached her in the cafeteria, and asked to share dinner together. This meeting eventually led to her marrying the young man, Rolf, on August 16, 1974.

Shortly after Syte’s oldest son Chris was born, she made the tough decision to end her university research and teaching career (or so she thought) to raise him. A couple of short years later, Syte and Rolf were blessed with a second son, Tom. Rolf’s work took the family to Madison, WI and Syte went to work turning the house they had purchased into a home. In the mid-1990s, at now-6th-grader Chris’ suggestion, Syte decided to homeschool her sons, plunging herself back into the teaching vocation until the boys were out of the house. At about this same time, Syte rediscovered her Catholic faith and quickly developed a love for the Rosary and Mary under the title of Our Lady of Good Help. Syte’s love for teaching never left her. When the boys were raised, she continued to share her insights on the Church, morality and culture through her website,

After his retirement in 2015, Syte spent her last few years with her best friend, Rolf, and a small circle of friends from the local Catholic community. In the summer of 2022, Syte was diagnosed with cancer which had metastasized to several areas of her body. She immediately began cancer treatment, and bravely accepted the accompanying sufferings with joy. In her last weeks, she had the joy of being surrounded with her sons, daughters-in-law and granddaughters, and of attending Rolf’s baptism and initiation into the Catholic Faith. On October 7, Syte entered the hospital with pneumonia, and, on the evening of the 11th, died peacefully and naturally instead of continuing invasive treatments.

Syte is survived by her husband, her sons Chris (Rebecca) and Tom (Tracey), her three granddaughters, and her younger brother Lucius (Vida) Strazdis. She is preceded in death by her parents and older brother Vytas. Syte’s Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Madison, WI on Tuesday October 18 at 10am. A burial service will follow at Resurrection Cemetery on the near-west side of Madison. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Women’s Care Center would be appreciated.

RESTORE SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY, say 17,000 global doctors and scientists.

The Global Covid Summit (GCS), a consortium or 17,000 global Physicians and Medical Scientists, have evaluated the problems and crises of the past two COVID years, and have made a Joint Statement in which they present 10 foundational principles on which all 17,000 members agree. The Statement, Declaration IV, was issued on May 11, 2022.

Their goal was to end disinformation, restore scientific and medical integrity, and to advise world governments on what must and must not be done regarding the present COVID pandemic, and all future possible pandemics.  

See both text and video of the global medical consensus these doctors present at 

GLOBAL COVID SUMMIT-  Declaration IV – Restore Scientific Integrity 

These doctors, as well as the the Great Barrington Declaration signatories, which include over 929,000 global signatories, outrank and outnumber the “experts” of the Biden administration and of the CDC, by orders of magnitude.  Moreover, these doctors are not biased by being on the Biden administration payroll, and do not receive secret royalty payments from outside firms, as do Dr. Fauci and his associates.  

10 Global COVID Summit Points Summarized

  1. We declare and the data confirm that the COVID-19 experimental genetic therapy injections must end.
  2. We declare doctors should not be blocked from providing life-saving medical treatment.
  3. We declare the state of national emergency, which facilitates corruption and extends the pandemic, should be immediately terminated.
  4. We declare medical privacy should never again be violated, and all travel and social restrictions must cease.
  5. We declare masks are not and have never been effective protection against an airborne respiratory virus in the community setting.
  6. We declare funding and research must be established for vaccination damage, death and suffering.
  7. We declare no opportunity should be denied, including education, career, military service or medical treatment, over unwillingness to take an injection.
  8. We declare that first amendment violations and medical censorship by government, technology and media companies should cease, and the Bill of Rights be upheld.
  9. We declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety and effectiveness information from patients and physicians, and should be immediately indicted for fraud.
  10. We declare government and medical agencies must be held accountable.

Biden’s Pathetic Response

Incidentally, and pathetically, the Biden administration issued a copycat Global COVID Summit statement one day later on May 12, 2022,  trying to contradict the 17,000 doctors and to cling to the Biden administration’s failed policies of mandates, masks and questionable injections, all of which have failed abysmally, and were as useless as they were unprecedented in the history of medical practice.    

A Happy and Blessed Easter to Everyone!

Lithuanian Easter Eggs


Just as true today as it was one year ago when written:  

“Freedom from Cowardice” (From “Let Freedom Ring“)

Recently, Facebook suspended my account for 24 hours for sharing a video of a respected doctor who has had success with a treatment for COVID-19. The video that supposedly does not follow Facebook’s community standards had 1.5 million views in one week, and at the time of this writing has not been banned on YouTube.

What’s going on here? Obviously, this is about the ongoing threat of my willingness to speak the truth openly. Such behavior is not allowed by the mob who is clearly in power now. This action by Facebook is an example of the classic chilling effect meant to place fear in anyone who does not stay within the lines of the mob’s agenda. “Chilling effect” is a term in law and communication that describes a situation where speech or conduct is suppressed by fear of penalization at the interests of an individual or group.

The problem right now is that this chilling effect is proving to be remarkably effective. Most people are cowering in fear. Even religious leaders are kowtowing to the mob. Why? Because speaking the truth openly is considered “divisive.” In other words, because those who oppose the Holy Spirit aggressively express their offense of divine revelation (Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition), we must remain silent on these teachings. For the sake of unity, we are expected to silently sit by and allow the normalization of killing babies, the demise of the nuclear family, sodomy, gender dysphoria (grown men sharing a bathroom with little girls), Marxism, etc.

These growing calls for silence, amid the mounting aggression of the mob, have turned an incrementalism of evil into a bum-rush of everything that betrays the will of God.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen wrote, “The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.”

Jesus did not prescribe this silent acquiescence to evil as a way to avoid division. We are not to kowtow to any chilling effect from the mob. Instead, we must be willing to boldly speak the truth with love, despite the backlash that is sure to come. We were told, “Brother will hand over brother to death, and the father his child; children will rise up against parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by all because of my name, but whoever endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:21-22).

There it is — “but whoever endures to the end will be saved.” Therefore, I must ask myself, “What if I get hit by a car today and must stand before the judgment throne of God?” Will I be eternally condemned for speaking truth that might have been divisive or offended people? Or will I be saved because I stood with Christ and His truth, endured in fortitude, and was unafraid to thwart the advancement of evil in our times, regardless of what the consequences were?

What will YOU choose…courage or cowardice? (From “Let Freedom Ring“)

What will YOU choose…courage or cowardice?


COVID Hell Was Avoidable

Highest COVID Death Toll 

The United States has the highest reported COVID death toll of any country.
The U.S. accounts for only 4% of the world’s population but we suffered about 15% of the 5.3 million known global COVID deaths in the last two years (AP, Yahoo News).
This means we suffered a 400% higher death toll from COVID compared with the rest of the world.  

What Happened?

What Happened?
One of the best educated, wealthiest nations of earth allowed four times more people to die than everybody else.  Instead of 800,000 fatalities, we could have had 200,000 fatalities .
600,000 people died needlessly. 
There is no avoiding the obvious conclusion.
We blew it.

How Did We Blow It? 

How Did We Blow It? 
Was it incompetence or was malfeasance involved?

WHO Advisor Shows That It Could Have Been Avoided

Evidence provided by an Advisor to the World Health Organization shows that the COVID epidemic could have been nipped in the bud, but powerful players interfered with the efforts of ethical physicians. 

In October 2020 Dr. Andrew Hill was tasked to report to the World Health Organization on dozens of studies from around the world evaluating Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.  

Dr. Hill talked to two American physicians, Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory, and British scientist Dr. Tess Lawrie about the exciting data they were witnessing.  

Then something happened…

An amazing 18 minute story from a very courageous and ethical woman, Dr. Tess Lawrie, who is now begging Dr. Andrew Hill to reveal those involved in the malfeasance:



Dr. Tess Lawrie (MBBCh, PhD) is the Director of the Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy Ltd, and CEO of EbMCsquared CiC, an independent, not for profit, health-focused think tank based in the United Kingdom. She is also the founder of the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development initiative (now called BiRD International) and a co-founder of World Council for Health. 

Let’s all pray that Andrew Hill comes forward to reveal who has been responsible for the 600,000 excess US deaths and for the two years of COVID hell we have all lived through globally.  
If we don’t identify the players, their agenda, which has just begun, will continue.  

Only GOD can stop people like this.

Good News on the Way?……


Preliminary news seems to indicate that our global 2 year  long COVID ordeal of lockdowns, masks and vaxx mandates might be over. 

Sweden and Switzerland joined Denmark, Norway, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, France and the UK in announcing they will lift COVID restrictions and open up their countries.      -Countries dropping COVID restrictions 2-4-22    

Some Democrat Run Cities Aim to End Vaccine and Mask Mandates – Epoch Times. 2-3-22

Countries That Have Removed All Internal COVID Restrictions –

If, indeed, the nightmare is over, and if the US gets on board with these nations and their COVID management conclusions, rational people will ask —   why did we sustain such painful efforts for two years, and why are we now so quickly abandoning them?

What Does This Mean?

Are we fools to abandon these oppressive controls?
Will this trigger a global health catastrophe that wipes out half the human race?
Were the opponents of these mandates right all along?
Will history show us that our leaders and our institutions were at best incompetent, and at worst nefarious and malicious?

Sorting Out the Answers 

We will each have to sort these options out for ourselves.  
We will not try to argue all the points here comprehensively.

Relevant Points to Consider

We will make several major relevant points:

  • During the past two years, it has primarily been the right that has argued for more freedom and less government, and the left that has argued for more mandates and controls. 
  • Now, a number of previously left-leaning leaders and media moguls have started shifting their positions (see below).
  • Moreover, the nations/states which have mandated the least masks, vaccines and shutdowns, seem to be doing the best in preventing COVID illness and death.   

Examples of Left-Leaning Media Making a Major Shift

Below are some examples you can watch instead of the evening news, instead of watching the very limited and repetitive information offered by major news networks, including FOX:

Joe Rogan 

Joe Rogan is an American Commentator who did an outstanding interview with Dr. Robert Malone, clarifying all the confusion that has gone on during the past 2 years.  Other than some brief profanity used by Joe Rogan when he found out the extent of the malfeasance that has become apparent in our government, this is an outstanding interview that everyone who wants to know why COVID restrictions should be lifted should watch. 
(Click the link below or the image below to view Joe Rogan’s Interviewwith Dr. Robert Malone on Rumble) 

Del Bigtree 

Del Bigtree is a man with allegiance to nothing but the truth. As an Emmy Award winning producer on the CBS talk show The Doctors, Del uncovered a story of corruption so morally bankrupt and profound that he featured it on his popular Highwire Digital Newscast which typically gets 11 million views, more than any major cable network news.  He now poses a serious threat to COVID control enthusiasts.
