    Claim: Tasmania, New Zealand, Iceland, UK & Ireland the Best Places to Survive the Climate Crisis

    Guest essay by Eric Worrall

    According to researchers, climate worriers should consider moving to asylums, small isolated cold climate countries, which they see as lifeboats or arks which maximise their chance of surviving the coming climate apocalypse.

    Tasmania among best places to survive global societal collapse, new study finds

    By Fiona Blackwood

    Tasmania has been ranked one of the top five places in the world to survive a global collapse in society, according to a British study.

    Key points:

    A UK study rated Tasmania one of the best places to survive a collapse in society
    Scientists say Tasmania’s climate, agricultural resources and electricity supply make it an ideal refuge should “things go pear-shaped”
    However, they say the state could not cope with an influx of people
    Tasmania has been listed alongside New Zealand, Iceland, the United Kingdom and Ireland as potential havens of the future.

      Let’s see this mouth piece author live there now for the next 5 years…
      Our Prime Minister in Canada is really all in on freezing Canadians.
      He paid our steel mills to downsizing so that they can no longer smelt any steel or materials.
      We now are totally reliant on imports.
      For a cold country on verge of it’s main fuel supply being shut off is not a nice prospect to think about.

      Here is a link to a little known website that may force you to question your move to these refuges

      The blog is published under the pseudonym joannenova and has just run a series of articles that imply we may be on the verge of a cold snap. So my advice to those planning to wait out the Human Induced Global Warming is to not store your potatoes and victuals too deep in the the permafrost as did the Taxmen who migrated to Newfoundland from Scotland. You may find food and warmth a bit scarce. And then there was this https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofScotland/The-Darien-Scheme/ lead by a Banker that may have lead to the bankrupted Scots having to surrender their independence to a foreign power. Sound familiar.

        Broadie:
        The Act of Union was a necessity as Scotland was bankrupt. Most of the aristocracy were broke and were offered/negotiated bribes by the English, but most were still desperate after the South Sea Bubble (and other speculations) in 1720 and that lead to The Clearances as the land was converted to sheep and the clansmen sent into exile (It took over 100 years but got well underway as soon as the landowners realised the profit, similar to more modern times as industry is ‘rationalised’ abroad). They cannot now even build wind turbines there.
        It seems to be a national characteristic as they have embarked on a similar scheme in recent years with wind energy, believing that they can run the country on wind and make a fortune selling it to other nations, namely England from whom they want to be independent while getting continued subsidies for wind (and vital backup electricity). At least this time they will avoid the mosquitoes.

        As for their ambition to be the Saudi Arabia of Wind, Norway isn’t interested in taking any more, neither is Denmark. The Netherlands have (mostly) reliable coal-fired (rendered suitable by purchase of Green Certificates) so they don’t want it either.

          For more than ten years in this century my wife and I ran training courses in quarantine fumigation from the Middle East, through India, SE Asia to the Philippines and China. We had to work outside in tropical heat in all those counties (except China) and, although we found 42C in Cheni a bit hard to take we got quite used to temperatures in the mid 30’s. And, what’s more, the millions of people who live in those areas seem to have no problems at all. Why on earth we are worried about 1 or 2 degrees in the climates that we are habituated to, I have no idea.

    The Triumphant March Toward 100% “Renewable” Electricity: Germany and California

    Reposted from the MANHATTAN CONTRARIAN

    July 28, 2021/ Francis Menton

    … Within both the EU and the US, there are national and state champions that are far out-virtuing everybody else. In the EU, it’s Germany. … Here in the US, our champion is California. …

    Germany

    … And the answer is that in the first half of 2020 Germany achieved the level of 50% of its electricity from “renewables.” But in 2021 that level fell back to 43%:

    “The share of renewable energies in gross electric power consumption in the first half of 2021 fell from 50% to 43% compared to a year earlier,” Die kalte Sonne reports.

    What happened? The wind just didn’t blow as much:

    “The production of onshore and offshore wind energy decreased by 20%.” . . . The reason for the steep drop, according to the findings, was due to unfavorable weather conditions. “This year, especially in the first quarter, the wind was particularly still. . . .”

    So did solar energy then pick up the slack? Unfortunately, no:

    “[T]he sun output was low. . . . Solar energy output . . . rose a modest 2%.”

    California

    So what’s the real picture over the course of multiple months or a year? … Here are the figures from the California Energy Commission for the full year 2020. The total contribution to electricity supply from “renewables” is claimed to be 33.09%. Oh, but that includes 2.45% from “biomass,” 4.89% from “geothermal,” and 1.39% from “small hydro.” Take those out and you’re left with a big 24.36% from wind and solar. And since electricity is only about 30% of final energy consumption, that means that wind and solar are only contribution around 8% of total energy consumption in California. …

      And a follow-up article to “The Triumphant March Toward 100% “Renewable” Electricity: Germany and California””

      A Little Arithmetic: The Costs Of A Solar-Powered Grid Without Fossil Fuel Back-up

      From the MANHATTAN CONTRARIAN

      July 29, 2021/ Francis Menton

      Yesterday’s post made the point that states or countries seeking to march toward 100% “renewable” electricity don’t seem to be able to get past about the 50% mark, no matter how many wind turbines and solar panels they build.

      I thought it might be instructive to play out Sean’s idea to see just how much solar generation capacity and storage it would take to make a system out of just those two elements that would be sufficient to fulfill California’s current electricity requirements.

        Years ago, I remember reading about a German economist who in about 2011 did a study on the optimum level of renewables in an electricity system in Germany. His answer was 30%.

        • #
          RickWill

          If it is the same German economist that produced the paper I read, your word “optimum” should be replaced with tolerated. The optimum for most grids is zero weather dependent generators. Until their lifetime costs equate to the cost of coal fuel for thermal plant the optimum will remain zero in most cases.

          There is an optimum level around 30% for wind generators in perched water constrained hydro grids and remote locations that are using full price diesel fuel.

            They say that the sun and wind are free, so what, so is coal: You don’t post a cheque to “The Maker” for every ton mined. Like wind and solar there are costs incurred in the harvesting. Coal has an unfair TAX burden not placed on the ruinables.

      Richard Owen No.3

      RicDre:
      Even that claim for “renewables” may be suspect. For 2019 and the EU as a whole “Renewables” supplied 16% of demand, but solar was 1%, wind 2% and bioenergy 11% (burning woodchips and rubbish etc.).

      ( Hydro 2% wasn’t included under renewables for some reason.)

    Top Experts Say COVID-19 ‘Delta Variant’ Symptoms Are Identical To ‘Hay Fever’, Common Cold

    by ANDREW WHITE June 29, 2021

    … Experts in the United Kingdom have compared the symptoms of the COVID-19 “Delta Variant” to that of hay fever and the common cold, according to various reports. The new strain has reportedly been the cause of 99% of all new COVID-19 cases in the UK. “The main symptoms of COVID-19 appear to have changed — with headaches and sore throats now more common than fevers and coughs, according to a warning by UK experts,” noted the New York Post.

      Check this – 74% of cases were vaccinated

      https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7031e2.htm?s_cid=mm7031e2_w

      “During July 2021, 469 cases of COVID-19 associated with multiple summer events and large public gatherings in a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, were identified among Massachusetts residents; vaccination coverage among eligible Massachusetts residents was 69%. Approximately three quarters (346; 74%) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons (those who had completed a 2-dose course of mRNA vaccine [Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna] or had received a single dose of Janssen [Johnson & Johnson] vaccine ≥14 days before exposure).

        Yes, but the real story is that vaccinations do not do much good and in fact are hazardous, even after their alleged effects have stopped working possibly only to leave the victim more vulnerable than those who haven’t been vaccinated.

        If everyone were vaccinated, people would still get the virus and thus the figure obviously would be 100% not just 74%. We have been sold out once again by our officialdom. First there was the CAGW alarm and the lie to reduce our emissions, now the COVID-10 scare, lockdowns and vaccine lies. If these two initiatives don’t crash and burn the West then we’ll see yet another scam to make sure it does.

          Possibly that is true PeterS,

          Then data so far dose not support the proposition that the vaccines are hazardous, except for a few poorly documented cases.

          Either our health officials are lying or the vaccinated are doing ok so far. I am not sure which is which!

            I agree the jury is still out but the fact still remains there is much anecdotal evidence to show the vaccines are causing serious side effects to some yet no one in official circles will bother to investigate and tell us the truth. All they keep telling us is to shut up and do what they say – vaccinate! NO WAY! On the balance of probabilities I would far more likely die from a car accident than from the virus. I won’t stop driving and I won’t be taking any experiential vaccine. I rather wait. In fact I would not be too concerned getting the virus and become immune naturally. The vast majority of people who get the virus suffer little or no illness and have the benefit of obtaining immunity the proper way. BTW, in the UK now they are concerned that those who are vaccinated need booster shots due to the delta strain affecting even the vaccinated, so they say. There is a lot we don’t know, mostly because it’s still too early days. However, I also believe they are not telling us the whole truth. Lots of conspiracy theories out there and I’ve always ignore them in the past but this time I am not playing Russian Roulette with my life. As I keep saying, on the balance of probabilities using their own officials data, the smarter move is not the be vaccinated and take the necessary precautions to avoid being infected. In any case here in Australia we do not have an epidemic of the virus, not even in the most loose use of the term. It has been one huge beat up here.

        Let’s pretend that vaccines could eradicate COVID in the entire human population as they did with smallpox.

        A problem has arisen in other mammals, both farmed and wild, being carriers. The virus jumped to farmed mink, with Denmark alone culling 17 million last year and no idea of the prevalence of the disease in the wild mink population. Farmers were ordered to cull their herds by 16 November and the Police and military were deployed to enforce the (illegal) cull. Mink in Spain, Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands and the US were all affected.

        The virus passed from humans to farmed mink, before jumping back to humans. Several different mutations have been discovered in the virus in mink that do not arise in humans. But one called “Cluster 5” is of particular concern and 12 people are known to have caught it in Denmark. More than 200 other people have contracted other mink-related strains of the virus. Tests have found that patient antibodies respond less well to Cluster 5.

        https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-54890229

        It is just reported that 60% of white-tailed deer in Michigan have been exposed to COVID. Antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 were detected in 33 percent of the total specimens, but 60 percent of deer in Michigan were found to have been exposed.

        Of the three other states tested, Illinois had the lowest with just seven percent, then New York with 18 percent and Pennsylvania with 34 percent.

        The findings, according to experts, suggests that wild animals in the US could serve as a reservoir for the virus even if it becomes under control in the human population.

        https://www.msn.com/en-au/health/medical/60-of-white-tailed-deer-in-michigan-have-been-infected-with-covid/ar-AAMKDcX?ocid=msedgntp

        When SARS-CoV-2 jumped from humans into minks on fur farms, its spike proteins mutated to infect the animals more easily.
        But when the virus was transmitted back into humans, it carried this mutation with it, making COVID-19 antibodies less effective, according to scientists.

        So, if mutated zoonotic strains of the virus are episodically transmitted back to re-infect humans, and those strains make the vaccines even less effective than they already are with known human mutations, what point is there in exposing humanity to the known — and unknown — dangers of these “vaccines”?

          With the apparent amount of toxic graphene oxide in the vaccines as a nano particle able to allegedly create systemic autoimmune reactions, the greater the “crisis” the more if this stuff is injected.

            Graphene oxide? That might explain why people demonstrated how a magnetic can stick to the arm where the shots were taken. In one video I saw them using a super magnet close the where the shot entered the skin, and it bulged out to be attracted to the magnet. Perhaps fake but given Graphene exhibits strange behaviours in electromagnetic fields (I saw many lab experiments to demonstrate the effects) it’s very possible the videos of magnets hanging off people’s arms are real. Yet another reason I won’t be taking the shots just in case.

          Kung Flu in 30% of of 60% of the total ESTIMATED Whitetailed deer population?

          Raw data would be nice, but probably embarrassing for them.

          How many deer did they catch, test and release? Did they trap ten, test six and get a “result” in two? That sounds “sciency” enough for this caper. PCR tests? These are as bogus as Hell, anyway.

          Has anyone ever done full bloods on an entire species over its entire range over an extended period before?

            No, the virus was not always there. From another post…

            You might want to take a look at this. It is from the pharmaceutical virus/vaccine patent side of things:

            https://www.bitchute.com/video/aWXalrBhYAck/

            It is the best explanation I have seen so far, as to why the narrative suddenly shifted to Laboratory Escape from Natural Origin.

            In order to get a patent on something it has to be “invented” and not natural. For example you can’t get a patent on “Vitamin C”. So, as this video reveals, almost all of the “components” of COVID19 have been patented (virus capsule, spike protein, furin cleavage site, etc). So, if this were a natural recombination occurrence, how did the bats and pangolins get the patented components? The video also reveals a lot of inconsistencies in the patent data, like PCR tests and vaccine patents being filed before the patents on the “novel” virus, etc.

            Give it ten minutes… I found it to be one of the most interesting videos I have seen on COVID19 in a long time.”

            It is my perspective that The research done at Wuhan in 2019 finalized this. I am now well convinced that this was all created. Details on the release are unknown. However the statist never let a crisis go to waste.

      UK Gov’t Warns of COVID-19 Doomsday Scenario, Says 1 in 3 Could Die

      The UK government in a new document published Saturday (15 Pages) warned that a new strain of COVID-19 could mutate and kill one in three people.

      The chance of mutation is most likely to occur when the virus is at its most prevalent, which seems to be the case in the UK, according to the United Kingdom’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE).

      Dr. Philippa Whitford, the vice-chair of Britain’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on COVID-19, told The Daily Mail that stricter border control measures were needed. Without them, she said, “we risk importing vaccine-resistant variants while uncontrolled spread here could lead to yet another UK variant.”

        Wow, really? This is legitimate? Either they know ADE is going to happen, ( or starting to happen) or they are just trying to panic the population for control. I see zero decent options here; they are either incredibly irresponsible panic promoters, or democidal nut cases.

        There is little doubt they will, and perhaps already are, blame or blaming adverse reactions to the vaccine on vaccine variations. ( I just find it highly unlikely that a virus, even a human created one as this one almost certainly is, that fir most people is about as threatening as a bad flu, would easily progress to a 33 percent case mortality rate.)

        The Biden administration is doing all possible to frighten and divide its citizens as well in scientifically wrong and morally demented comments blaming further spread on the unvaccinated.
        Obiden literally told the unvaccinated that they would pay. I guess they are both incredibly irresponsible and evil.

        Been thinking about this for a couple days.
        Tonyb, forgive me for tagging on to your comment but it seems the right place.
        This is my last comment on Jonova or anywhere. (Not that anyone cares, or this will survive mod.)
        Not sure it’s safe.
        I was here cause I saw Jonova and Oz as a bellwether.
        Oz appears to me from to have become a totalitarian state as you illustrate.
        Same for NZ Canada France and UK, US soon.
        The Tech monsters have announced teaming up with governments to create lists of dissenters and wrong thinkers.
        The V is just a cover.
        Academia and science have become the Medieval Church and we are entering a new weird Feudal era.
        The Church (in their new incarnation Tech and Academia) and the aristocracy are on verge of restoring their former power.
        My life work and subsistence small business have been heavily damaged by lockdown and another round is likely it.
        But so many I know have benefited and approve of the situation.
        From my reading of history, totalitarianism requires an initial crushing of peasants.
        So I gotta keep my head down and hope for the best.
        Good luck all, we’re gonna need it. Thanks for tolerating me.
        Not complaining, I was fortunate to live in the light of free speech and thought for the best part of my life.
        With a last salute to my father and all those that fought for it.
        It was very cool while it lasted.
        This statement is just for my own satisfaction.
        Oh yeah, and anthropogenic climate change is BS.

          You sound depressed. There are many hundreds of thousands of lock down protestors in France Uk, OZ and huge online condemnation of govts. These have forced many a U turn by such as Boris,

          It is astonishing how many demand yet more lockdowns or travel restrictions or greater use of face masks. In the UK the vast majority of people say they intend continuing to wear them however the reporters observations showed this was very far from the cae.

          So what people do and what they say are often not the same thing.

          Lockdowns don’t work. The sooner people realise they are actually under house arrest the better.

          I for one intend to continue posting. I would not touch twitter, or Facebook however as they can be cess pits and often just reflect the unconsidered views of small groups of people.

          People are apathetic and often just go with the flow until they are affected. Those unable to see their grandchildren say because of travel restrictions will start to query what is happening.when people’s power bills soar and energy is rationed they will realise the drawbacks to so called green energy. People need a push.

            Exactly right Tonyb, I sympathize with John R Smith who like many others are just hanging in there financially, physically or mentally and see no hope for the future, it has angered me for years and I hope many others will feel the same when the negative impacts of their apathy affects their lives.

              I sympathize with John too. Mismanagement of the pandemic has been cruel to small business, and it is grossly unfair that they have borne so much of the cost.

              I’m no Bellwether though. Virology and genetics was and still is my first passion in science. We don’t want mandatory vax, but we don’t want ChiComm Bioweapons either. I’m aiming for freedom from both.

              Far from being under totalitarian reign, I live in the state with the most freedom on Earth. The policy of eradicating the virus means I’m free not only from masks and lockdowns (95% of the time) but I’m also free of Chinese Bioweapons, and free of any urgent need to vaccinate.

              The kids of WA are free to go to school. The old folks are free to get visitors. We are free to dance and sing, and watch football, hold concerts and travel within a 2 million square kilometer area with the best beaches in the world.

              We gave up the right to fly freely outside of the state (and we miss our friends, we want those travel bubbles open). But the voters of WA overwhelmingly chose this path. The State Government won in a shocking landslide winning 53 out of 59 seats in the lower house.

              Perhaps we live in a bubble of democracy from a time when it mattered and the corruption has just not matured here as it has in more populated places.

              The next Chicomm bioweapon is already in the lab. The West needs a better plan, because we don’t want to repeat this one, and the next virus could be so much worse. Many states in Australia and NZ show the way. We didn’t have to let this in. Chinese bioweapons need to stay in China.

              On Feb 16th last year I predicted that we would be closing factories and schools in a month if we did not shut the borders and I was right. At the time I said that it was unheard of to consider closing flights and shutting down cities, but it was obvious what was coming.

              I realize people want me to say that all restrictions are wrong and the virus is just the flu, but it’s not and I wouldn’t be much of a blogger if I was just saying what people want to hear. It’s being used by Big Pharma and the left, and by China, but talk to the scientists who work this area, as well the ones who disagree. There are vested interests on both sides.

              As always, the observations and data are king.

              Thanks for sticking around and reading, especially if it’s not what you wanted to hear. Long live free speech.

                I have agreed with much that you say Jo but not with your statement that “We gave up the right to fly freely outside the state”. I certainly did no such thing; my freedom to fly was taken from me. My mother in England is 99; my siblings are all there, son overseas, grandsons in the UK and our great grandson is almost a year old, unmet by us. We haven’t seen our son in WA for ages; we had been planning a visit over a year ago. We should not be living in such fear and panic and under such heavy control as humans who should be able to live their lives to the full. Our wonderful civilisation; better than ever in the history of the human race, ever, is being wrecked.

                Why oh Why do we still not have any quarantine? Or anti viral treatments? Or a hospital system geared up for a pandemic which has been going for more than a year and a half?

                So much can be tried at least, but our Ministers and Premiers won’t hear us.

                I’ll add my voice to those who thank Jo for everything she does with this wonderful site but note that she is refusing to see the damage wrought by isolation and lockdowns and totally discounting the lowered likelihood of serious infection with the Delta variant.

                We should be exposing healthy kids to the Delta variant (like we do with ChickenPox) rather than subjecting them to toxin producing gene therapy.

                The key word here is “allowed”..!
                Currently Australians wishing to go overseas must get permission from the Dept of Home Affairs.
                This is a written document that must be produced before you can check in on an international flight.
                Permission to travel is only granted for essential and exceptional circumstances.
                This is in addition to any requirements the destination ( or transit) country may impose.

                @tonyb, Aug the 1st @11:21pm.

                Tony, it is only a percentage of applicants who receive approval for an exemption; not sure of the exact figure atm. Apart from the likelihood of being knocked back, the sheer stress of the process plus shortage of places on flights plus the huge cost of them now (we are pensioners living off a limited pension) make it all very difficult.
                The thought of being two weeks in a claustrophobia-inducing city hotel room is a worry too…how do you get the correct diet, fresh air and sunshine and adequate exercise? Those places look like a nightmare. It would be much more sensible to be able to quarantine on our little farm in the country (with an ankle bracelet?). I would leave plenty of stored food in the freezer and have fresh supplies dropped off at the gate, no problem. Of course, those of us who would do the right thing can’t be trusted because certain elements of society don’t do the right thing.

                Unfortunately I think the travel bans are doing very little long term.
                The reason is that I see no sign of governments in most nations or in WA of using the very effective antivirals or shutting down the leaky vaccines which are, even now, harming a chance to acquire natural immunity.

                Now I see all bans as effective government motivational tools to push, threaten, and all but force people, most of whom are not under viral threat, to get vaccinated.

                The multi pronged attack of universal anti-virals, helpful vitamins, sunshine and natural immunity was the obvious solution to this by March of 2020.

              Harves,

              In Western Australia the tourism industry is on full throttle.

              Can’t get a bed or a campsite for love or money. The restaurants are humming. Sport is in full flight. (My team lost yesterday – due to the refereeing, of course – and there were hundreds of people there cheering, roaring, laughing, drinking and even singing. But that Rugby for you).

              The freedom state is not just a political entity. It’s as much a psychological one.

              The cost of camper trailers, caravans, four-wheel drives and tents is on a roll. The country pubs are having a big season. People are already out looking for wildflowers (they’re a month too early – but they don’t care).

              The bush is full of gold-detectors pinging away at $US1,800 per troy ounce. The surf is a bit rough but the water – the water – is as warm as I’ve ever felt it since I’ve been surfing here. Not even wearing a wetsuit.

              Yep. We’ve had a bit of rain, but the cockies have stopped whinging and started to buy city properties as though they’re going out of fashion. They be complaining that the bumper season will depress their prices soon enough. But that’s cockies for you.

              Best thing you could do is get yourself and your family over to the freedom state. Permanently. Especially if you know how to weld, or lay a brick, or fix a leaky roof.

          It’s called the ‘big reset’, John R.

          We saw the technique of denial as the AGW scheme was growing up in the UN. You could download and read the planning, but it was all denied as a conspiracy theory.

          Those keen watchers of ‘The Outsiders’ on Sunday morning would have seen Rowan Deans little piece with all the world leaders, one after the other, using the same media technique used in the US that has everyone from every ‘competing’ media outlet using the same words and promising there are universal, advantageous for citizens changes on the horizon to look forward to. Again, it’s the leaders of the Western democracies only that promise nirvana, as they did with AGW. COVID is one thing, but, as shown with Fauci, it is also another training ground of assessing what public reactions to restrictions will be and how they will be handled.

          Just another conspiracy theory obviously! The second one. All in plain sight, but people seem incapable of seeing the games being played at the periphery by the US and European leaderships. It is scary but nobody calls it out, demanding information about what those leaderships are proposing, yet as Dean showed, they are all into it very publicly and on video recordings.

          The thing that is really scary is that the politicians, at least at State level, bureaucrats and police – even the armed forces chiefs, seem to be enjoying the enforcement processes which seem hugely more extreme than the number of cases of COVID and their distributions appear to warrant. Similarly, while they all get paid as though nothing has happened, there is almost zero interest in the huge damage being done to small businesses and to people’s lives as a consequence. We are being made more and more dependent on government and nobody calls it out.

They are stopping vehicles that have 2 or more people to check if they are related, if not the occupants are fined.

        Of all the major democracies it is OZ that worries me the most. China must be looking on in astonishment. The number of cases you have is trivial yet the lockdowns and restrictions have been some of the harshest around. That makes me very concerned as to what the reactions of the authorities will be if the rates of infections and deaths reach those of some other countries.

        There is an authoritarian streak running through OZ like the lettering through a stick of rock. I had not expected this at all.

        Hope people push back.

          The vast majority of Australians recognise that lockdowns work. Victoria has beaten community spread of Covid 5 times. Clearly they also recognise that border controls are the simplest and most effective.

          The Prime Minister has now changed his tune to recommending short, sharp, severe lockdowns. He recognises the political currency in keeping Covid under control. The next federal election is required by May next year. If Australia is still battling Covid by then his credibility would be low.

          Until a month ago, very few people were concerned about getting vaccinated in Australia. It was a low priority. That has changed. If NSW cannot halt community spread then they will be in a dire race to get vaccinated or take the odds with Covid.

          UK added 71 soles to their Covid death tally yesterday and USA 419. Australia added 2 deaths. That is despite much higher levels of vaccination in both UK and USA than Australia.

          It is not easy to get the infection rate under 1. It requires very careful control – bioweapon grade control. After all we are dealing with an accidental release of a bioweapon grade virus that was not yet fully developed but still dangerous.

          Providing Australia protects its agriculture, iron ore exports and coal exports, the economy will be in good shape. Unlike UK and USA, Australia has dramatically improved its current account through the Covid era.
          https://tradingeconomics.com/australia/current-account

          The rush by many economies to install weather dependent generators has created unprecedented demand for Australian exports. It takes a lot of coal, gas, iron ore, copper, aluminium and other raw materials to add global warming monuments around the countryside and on roofs.

          UK may have lowered its CO2 emission internally but they have just outsourced the CO2 production to places like China that rely on Australia for the raw materials. Everything that is purchased in the UK is benefiting the Australian economy. Half the world’s steel is made from Australian iron ore. The Premier of WA, Mark McGowan, has done an outstanding job in keeping Covid out of his State and his high value exporters going strong.

          If China was honest at the outset and came out with a strong warning that they had accidentally released a bioweapon from a lab in Wuhan, would you take the odds that their science was hopeless and the “bioweapon” was low grade or would you immediately shut borders until you could get a grip on what was going on. Maybe you would just keep going as usual on the basis of China reassuring you that the virus was not deadly despite them locking people in their homes in Wuhan! The world is dealing with a bioweapon that was probably not at its maximum potency. We are still to learn how effective it is.

          Go back 20 months – China advises the UN that they have accidentally released a bioweapon. China shuts down all flights out of the country and require all non-resident incoming passengers to accept house arrest until the virus is eliminated. Where would the world be today? What would be your thoughts on border controls under those circumstances. Look at the derivation of quarantine:

          1660s, “period a ship suspected of carrying contagious disease is kept in isolation,” from Italian quaranta giorni, literally “space of forty days,” from quaranta “forty,” from Latin quadraginta”forty”

          Australia has always had quarantine for animal entry but got slack with humans. Still not set up to deal with human entry particularly well.

            Actually, the original Quarantine Station for Sydney, still exists in its entire original form at North Head , above Manley,
            It is isolated with its own arrivals wharf and enclosed area with a guardhouse still.
            The decontamination shower stalls and change rooms are all there together with numeroud accommodation buildings and service facilities.
            These days it is open to the public for events and resturant / bar functions.

                Basically Skeptical Sam is against death. Best join a religion that promises life ever after, then, cause all the rest are doomed to die.

                Given that the BC Canada covid deaths occurred at a median age of 84, with the life expectancy for the province at 82, it would seem as if covid functioned like all other infectious illnesses: it took out those whose immune systems had already failed. Fear porn put any youngish victims on the front pages, but to make a big story of the 2nd under 10 death was outright lying. The infant had already been transferred to the major children’s hospital because of its existing disease. On the other hand HxNx flu’s are lethal across the age span.

              yarpos, just be thankful there is a lot of currency coming into Australia from mining. Yes WA is doing well on the royalties, but so is the nation getting a high return from the high prices being paid for those exported resources from WA and other States.

              The cost to the nation of COVID would be a lot worse without it. The Federal government has spent money like water, and States are destroying small businesses and people’s hopes for their futures and savings for whatever else they had in mind. One waits for the fallout on lending institutions as the destruction proceeds. The only non-sufferers from this disease and the actions taken to control it are the public servants, politicians, farmers in some cases and big businesses able to keep running.

            Rick comment is wrong. Yes, an initial release of a human developed pathogen that rapidly killed was cause to what should have been an initial hard travel lock down until we learned. So Trump was right.

            Then it was “ flatten the curve”.

            Now it is lockdowns forever, a leaky virus mutating vaccine with deadly adverse reactions, and potentially catastrophic reactions. The vaccine is failing, and may very well be destroying our chance for herd immunity. Apologies if I missed it, yet I did not see Rick calling for wide spread anti viral use.

            At this point the lockdowns only force more to the failing vaccines. In most of the global population the virus was reduced due to seasonal reasons, leaky vaccines, and growing herd immunity. In the areas of older high vaccination percentage, the crossover events are increasing.

        When people start dying en masse from the jab you will have chaos and food supply and medical facilities will be devastated. The majority resisters to the “vaccine” are medical people, because they know what it does.

        And gumintis deeply implicated as they relentlessly promote it.

        Things are going to get ugly, I can see police being injured or killed, which is why troops are being used. We may see civil war in this country…I hope not but once people work out they have been shafted, it will turn fast.

        I hope the police and military have the guts to not obey orders they know are immoral and evil. I abhor violence, I am a realist though and have studied history.

        Wondered why the current gun amnesty is running? Its the final push to disarm people before it gets ugly….massive gun confiscations if you refuse the vaccine…it will happen… .vaccine refusers will be considered a “threat” to society….they are already encouraging people to snitch on thier neighbours.

          Our society is losing freedoms and they tend not to return. But the USA is hugely worse and tearing itself apart, all based on stirred up racism.

          In this country it hasn’t been so effective. We have had multiculturalism rammed down our throats for 50years, and I would say it has worked well, by and large. Those that would try to split us on the race line – probably descendents of those that promulgated multiculturalism as a political action initially – are hitting their heads against a brickwall of proven reality erected by their own forebears. Thanks folks.

          Our problems are coming from wokism forced on us by a combination of big government, including military and police, and big business activism in a space they have right to assume authority over the people that allow them to operate in our community.

          Yeah but heres the thing…if as it appears the vaccinated are now spreaders, this means a never ending pandemic.

          So as Bossche said, mass vaccination also favours the truly nasty mutations, which means a form of faster and faster viral feedback and creating a true monster.

          But I think that appears to be the plan…

          “Dr. Aurelio Peccei of the Club of Rome … advocated that a plague be introduced that would have the same effect as the Black Death of history. ‘The cure will be announced as newly developed when, in fact, it has existed from the beginning.” [“Behold A Pale Horse “, p. 49, 167]

            OK. but imagine we got them to use Vitamin D, ivermectin and other cheap antivirals? We could reduce many deaths without adding a burden on the young. 80 year olds are worth saving too.

            Imagine if we got the border quarantine right? All that money saved.

            But yes,the ABS stats are interesting — lets talk about the Jan-April excess deaths which number about 2,400 extra deaths. Given the growth in population is it significant? Maybe it is. The extra deaths are predominantly in dementia, and some in diabetes. Cancer deaths are at the high end of normal. heart attacks are lower.

            It could well be the rebound from last winters lower deaths. Possibly the older folk who might have died of influenza in winter 2020 have lived on another six months because we wiped out influenza? It may be the catch up after the dip in excess deaths last winter.

              You might be interested in the stats for the UK where excess deaths are running below the 10 year average

              https://lockdownsceptics.org/2021/07/13/what-pandemic-new-figures-reveal-age-adjusted-mortality-in-the-first-six-months-of-2021-is-below-the-10-year-average/

              The second chart in the link shows the number of excess deaths taking into account age and demographics. 2020 was the worst year since 2009, every year prior to that, back to the start of the records, was worse than 2020.

              Some 45000 died in care homes as the NHS was told to clear the decks and shuffled elderly infected people into them. The average age of death was around 84, 2 years more than usual mortality. Second biggest cause of death was from infections picked up in hospital with the latest figure showing 24% died of a complaint other than covid, but because they tested positive for it, that was listed as a covid death. (I knew 3 people in that category-one died from a fall and 2 from cancer)

              Third problematic area were our homes. The govt changed the advice from ‘stay indoors’ to ‘stay outside’ back around March and admitted that staying indoors had been the wrong advice.

              So all in all a lot of people died through over reaction and taking the wrong actions. CV is undoubtedly a serious problem to the elderly and the vulnerable but we made it much much worse by the route we took. None of this improved by having an unhealthy population with being obese apparently making death from CV far more likely.

              CV has not been the plague however, but our Govts have all acted as if it were, even though we knew around April 2020 its likely mortality.

              I do not disagree with you about anti virals. A proper study needs to be made and they should be offered routinely if found to be effective.

              However I don’t think we should trash our society, economy and freedoms for something we have made worse than we needed to.

              Jo, the stats say that this increase is consistent with 2020. So two years of excess deaths aligned with covid but not due to the virus. All I’m saying is that the obsession with this virus that does not impact average life expectancy is taking the focus off every other aspect of people’s wellbeing. It’s as if the broader society has adopted a philosophy of “We don’t care how much damage we do to people’s well-being, the economy or society, just as long as no one dies of covid.”!
              Dr Eammon Mathieson and his colleagues seem to be the only ones trying to draw attention to this obvious flaw in our current National health approach.

        So there’s still a discrepancy of about 6000 additional deaths a year than on average. ABS says increase is similar to 2020 but even then covid only contributed around 1000 deaths. So increase coincides with covid but not due to covid. You’d think govts and chief health officers that claim to follow the science would start wondering if the cure was worse than the virus? No? We are talking potentially thousands of deaths a year.

        Meanwhile 2 covid deaths a day have the media alarmists in full cry and half the country hiding under their beds

      G’day TedM,
      Talking of treatments, there’s a front page story in today’s Sunday Telegraph, and in full on page 7 under the heading “Feds eye new pills to battle the bug”.
      The on line version is paywalled so I can’t provide a link, sorry.
      My reading provokes this diatribe:

      Another great big con job by big pharma to entrap governments, probably world wide, to sign unacceptable contracts to purchase either the Zelenko, or the Math+ protocol, which they’ve probably secretly patented, or something close using rebranded HCQ or IVM with a bit of zinc and vitamin D. Also, probably insufficient of any of them to actually stop the virus and so ensure their “vaccines” are still needed.
      The big deal: a single pill. Keep suppressing HCQ and IVM so they can get an emergency release because there newly named stuff is based on existing chemicals which have been in wide use for at least 40 years.

      Conjecture? Yes.
      Realistic? In my opinion, yes.

    I’ve stopped watching Bolt a long time ago but this episode of his caught my eye on someone else’s YouTube channel (Kay SOCO Films) about a woman called Hatun who was savagely attacked at “speakers corner” in London. The YT channel is by another woman (Kay) who often speaks at the same location. Kay has put on her channel a number of videos discussing the incident in much detail. One point is the fact Hatun has been abused and assaulted on numerous other occasions before this latest incident. On almost every occasion a police officers were nearby but nothing was done other than abusing Hatun herself. In this latest incident where Hatun was savagely attacked with a knife, again the police did very little. Hatun was a Muslim who converted to Christianity and that explains why she is attacked so frequently in a public space where free speech is still upheld so widely, perhaps one of the few remaining places. Bolt makes the accusation that the mainstream media are pathetic cowards for ignoring this incident, and I would have to wholeheartedly agree with him.

        Don’t be under he illusion it’s any better here in Australia. The real pandemic is scaremongering thanks to our officialdom, something that under traditional laws in the past would be a valid reason for arrest. Instead people who break certain restrictions are being threatened with arrest. Today our politicians and health officials have immunity to all that and get away telling us lies upon lies, causing fear to run rampant destroying people’s livelihoods, increasing suicides and coercing a potentially hazardous vaccine onto the population that clearly isn’t working to stop the spread of the virus, which the tests can’t even make sure it’s not the flu. Stupid is as stupid does.

    Clinical trial by Pfizer shows their “vaccine” efficacy drops by 3% per month.

    The preprint, which contains the latest data from the original clinical trial, found an average decline in vaccine efficacy of 6% every two months.

    Also, they found no difference in deaths between those fully vaccinated vs unvaccinated

    During the blinded, controlled period of the study, 15 vaccine recipients and 14 placebo recipients died.

        Analitik, is the 3% per month meaning across countries, rather than in one person? The fall in Israel was a lot more than 3% per month.

        Is that suggesting that the virus is mutating around the Pfizer vacc by 3% per month? That’s even more serious.

        20

        • #
          Analitik

          That 3% is from across all the countries in the 6 month followup

          Between July 27, 2020 and October 29, 2020, 45,441 ≥16-year-olds were screened, and 44,165
          randomized at 152 sites (US [n=130], Argentina [n=1], Brazil [n=2], South Africa [n=4],
          Germany [n=6], Turkey [n=9]) in the phase 2/3 portion of the study. Of these participants,
          44,060 were vaccinated with ≥1 dose (BNT162b2, n=22,030; placebo, n=22,030), and 98%
          received dose 2

          It could well be a combination of the virus mutating and also antibody levels fading but more likely the latter since this was preceding the Delta variant spreading out of India.

          Also on mutations, did you read through the UK figures I provided, showing the greatly decreased likelihood of hospitalization and death for the Delta variant vs the original? I am NOT saying it is the flu as you intimated above but the Delta variant has mutated to be of similar concern as a serious flu and this is in the UK where they only just starting to look to doctors treating CoViD at their normal surgeries.

          As concerns now move to variants and waning immunity, it is comforting to know that there is another route out of this pandemic even if vaccines do not give us the protection that we had hoped.

    Here is my paraphrase of the Government’s rationale for the lockdowns:

    “Look, we are only taking these extreme measures because our number one aim is to keep everyone safe and healthy.

    The health and safety of the community is our number one concern.

    And even if dozens of teens and young people commit suicide in despair at these lockdowns, or turn to a lifetime of drug addiction and their parents’ businesses are destroyed forcing them into a lifetime of poverty and Government programs, and even if hundreds die from lost cancer screenings and delayed surgeries, these thousands of utterly ruined lives are a very small price to ensure that our very ill and very old people don’t have their terminal situations foreshortened by a month or two. The average age of death from Covid in Australia is 84, and these ill and aged people need all the protection we can give them, no matter the cost to the wider community. Better that a thousand teenagers turn to life-destroying drugs in their despair than one elderly citizen loses their life weeks before they had to.

    We don’t like to indirectly kill and injure so many of our people like this, but if protesters don’t stop flouting the health orders and marching in the streets we will be forced to instruct the police and army to open fire on them. And if we need to slaughter thousands to protect the last few months of a dying 90 year old we will do it, because the health and safety of our people is our number one concern.”

      Love your sarcastic truisms. I’m not alone in the world after all.
      The government doesn’t care about saving lives. They care about money and power and kissing parts of Klaus Schwab’s anatomy that can’t be mentioned in polite circles.
      The blatant hypocrisy of allowing BLM marches but not covid freedom marches further proves that, soon to be punished by large fines apparently. They’re panicking now the Covid lie is being exposed globally.
      Blacks were enslaving people including fellow blacks throughout history and indeed still do today. Perhaps they should seek reparations from BLM although now that BLM has served its purpose in getting the democrats elected, the dems dumped them and BLM has “cash flow” problems. Useful idiots, just like the politicians and police here who just follow orders and who will be “all in this together” with the rest of us and they won’t like the consequences one little bit.
      So if the pollies truly care about saving lives then why allow smoking, alcohol, junk food etc? They’d save millions of lives. Oh yes…revenue…and as a lot of those people won’t live to reach retirement, the govt won’t have to worry about pensions. Double bonus! Cha-ching!

      I’d have more confidence in a dinner service by Basil & Manuel than in these bottomless pits of medical, scientific and historical ignorance identifying as state premiers and their “experts”.

      But as I’ve said, history repeats and the first domino has fallen. When will it be Australia’s turn?
      Tunisia’s president has sacked the PM and suspended parliament, after violent mass protests nationwide on Sunday. Anger over the government’s handling of a massive recent spike in Covid cases has added to general unrest over the nation’s economic and social turmoil. President Kais Saied, who was elected in 2019, announced he was taking over.

      This line in the article about Solar Cells:

      The researchers found that their layered material enabled a current flow 1,000 times stronger than measured in pure barium titanate of the equivalent thickness.

      This leads me to believe that they are not talking about 1,000 times the current of Silicon solar cells, they are just saying that it produces 1,000 times the current in “pure barium titanate”. They also say in another part of the article:

      However, pure barium titanate, a ferroelectric crystal tested by the MLU researchers, for example, absorbs little sunlight.”

        Correct. The article opens with

        The energy generation of ferroelectric crystals in solar cells can be increased by a factor of a thousand

        They do not compare the output from this new layering technology against current silicon PV cells at all. The only comparision made is the lack of a diode junction (which is inherent in semi-conductor technologies).

As Pauline stated if people want to be lead like sheep (actually more like goats) then go for it.

      That may be the official rational, and will certainly be one result….
      But, the ultimate reason the private operator is happy to run with this, is the potential for “harvesting “ the price margin between the high and low wholesale price fluctuations.
      They stand to make millions of dollars daily from this facility……..if it survives the fire !

        The separation of the batteries is inadequate. Each unit needs to be isolated from its neighbours with a firewall so that when fire breaks out a door can be shut and the enclosure flooded. For a fee I’ll supply a plumbing schema to address this situation.

            I am not sure a halon flood would make any difference as my understanding is that the batteries contain their own oxidizer. Since dumping a burning Tesla in a vat of water seems to work, maybe they should just close the door and flood the enclosure with water.

      Maybe the vaxx is causing the delta variant.
      What about the Lambda variant ?
      What about SAGE in the UK saying the next variant will kill 1 in 3 people. (virologists may now laugh uncontrollably).

    I’m sitting here watching the final race for Matt Wearn in the Laser Dinghy class for the sailing, as he sails for the Gold Medal. He’s just pushed his tiny boat into the water, and I was thinking how small it was. The ‘boat’ is 13 feet nine inches in length.

    Here’s some perspective on that.

    Back in 1795, a Month after arriving in Australia, George Bass, himself a keen sailor, and Matthew Flinders set out on their first voyage of discovery. They sailed out through Sydney Heads into the Great Southern Ocean, and turned South to Botany Bay, wanting to explore if the Georges River flowing into that Bay showed any potential. Into waters only recently known to man of that vast Ocean, and then also exploring what is now known as Port Hacking.

    Out through Sydney Heads in a boat affectionately called Tom Thumb.

    That tiny boat was just eight feet long, much smaller than Matt Wearn’s Laser Dinghy.

    George Bass was 24, and Matthew Flinders just 21.

    You can scarcely even understand that now.

    Young men in small boats. Australia’s History.

      Im sure there is an inverse relationship between the age of a young man and his fear of physical harm.
      I used to sail in small (ish) boats in open oceans with little regard for the full potential dangers and less respect for the power of Nature . I guess most of us learn from experience… if we are lucky to survive.. that even a big boat is no match for mother nature at its worst. !
      I love the ocean,..but having been “lucky” twice ,..i think very carefully before i pit my years of experience and knowledge against mother nature again.

The are talking about a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. If such a proposal was made say 20 years ago, people would be demanding the designers and anyone who supported it be arrested and charged with crimes against humanity. Funny how our governments today actually praise it. Well, it’s not really funny, it’s to be expected with the rabid lot we have today.

    You know what? The more they keep telling us to vaccinate from now on, the more convinced that I will be making the right decision not to comply given what I’ve learned by doing my own research. It will be interesting to see by the end of the year the percentage of people who are vaccinated. It will be a good estimate of how much of the population are gullible and stupid, not including those who were vaccinated very early since I will excuse them for being scared into doing so – I almost was but soon realised they were telling lies about a couple of things so I decided to wait and research it more. There is now more than enough evidence to convince even a pea brain not to vaccinate so anyone who does so from now on must be those who don’t bother to do their own research and just swallow whatever the MSM tells them. If that’s not a sign of pure gullible foolishness then nothing is.

    How covid leads to better education!
    Just been following someoneI know on a boat which has had to pull into Port to release a covid affected person ( How they got it is a mystery ) . Any road, it brought me to parts of the world I never knew about.: their History and association with Europe. Now as a Brexiteer, It may have helped THEIR cause better, if the REMOANERS ( which seems to include the TV Media ) had shown us programs about these Countries and how they developed along with us in the past couple of Centuries … as it is, they DID NOT and ofcourse what is being a remoaner really about, then?
    So in the course of Sunday Brunch Click-about, on a cold Scottish morning, following links on the marine website, I came across this about LNG Cruise ships:
    “However, the World Bank has already weighed in due to it still being a fossil fuel.

    LNG is effectively liquefied methane, and methane is itself a highly potent GHG. Over 20-year and 100-year time horizons, methane is respectively 86 times and 36 times more potent a GHG than CO2. Therefore, any GHG emissions from unburnt methane released to the atmosphere – called methane leakage – can diminish or even entirely offset the theoretical GHG benefit of the use of LNG,” the bank warned.https://www.marinetraffic.com/blog/full-steam-ahead-for-the-lng-propelled-mardi-gras/

    I was scared last year in March at the prospect of catching Covid. Then I realised that I wasn’t that likely to catch Covid as I lived alone and had my groceries delivered. Apart from bike riding, I rarely went out.

    Then the government introduced the mandatory vaccine with its accompanying certificate.

    At first, it was a piece of paper, which you could show at pubs and clubs to gain entry. I didn’t attend pubs and clubs.

    Then it was an app on your phone that gave you access to medical care.

    Eventually, it became necessary to enter any business, shop, or supermarket.

      Sorry, that happens not to be the case. The AstraZeneca “vaccine”, like the J&J and Sputnik, use a modified adenovirus to infect cells to produce spike proteins, just as the mRNA ones do but with a different delivery mechanism.

      All are gene therapy spike protein vaccines, not vaccines against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

        Thoughts on Novavax?

        01

        • #
          Analitik

          NovaVax injects premade spike proteins so at least the dosage is known. The gene therapies depend on how each cell expresses the inserted genetic sequence so that the number produced is variable down to the cellular level (how many are infected, how many produced by a cell that gets infected).

          Mobility of the NovaVax spike proteins is unknown – in theory, they should be more mobile that those from gene therapy as the spike proteins are SUPPOSED to stay anchored on the cells that express them. The video (x 2) from Anton suggest that they do become mobile into the bloodstream, however.

          Even worse, long term, than the capillary wall roughening is the potential for the spike proteins to cause female sterility (since there are a lot of ACE2 receptors in the ovaries) and neurological degeneration if they get into the bloodstream.

          I have posted about the protein folding that can be induced in the brain by the spike proteins as a possible cause for observed neurological issues amongst some CoViD recovered. Here is another possibility: weakening of the blood-brain barrier and inflammation of brain tissue.

          Key to our findings is the demonstration that S1 promotes loss of barrier integrity in an advanced 3D microfluidic model of the human BBB, a platform that more closely resembles the physiological conditions at this CNS interface. Evidence provided suggests that the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins trigger a pro-inflammatory response on brain endothelial cells that may contribute to an altered state of BBB function. Together, these results are the first to show the direct impact that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein could have on brain endothelial cells; thereby offering a plausible explanation for the neurological consequences seen in COVID-19 patients.

          Here is the relevant portion if TLDR

          What’s done to the virus is that actually a little genetic snippet is exchanged and placed into the adenovirus that is actually from the COVID virus. It’s the section of genetic code that codes for the spike protein. The adenovirus is like a Trojan horse, except that what it’s delivering is a good thing, instead of delivering something that you don’t want in your body. You get the vaccine, the adenovirus goes into your cell, it’s got this Trojan horse code on it that makes the spike protein. That spike protein then goes to the surface of your cell and then your immune system recognizes it and starts to make antibodies to it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sIWb9GTbbE

    The claim is that the vaccine migrates far beyond the injection site and the spike protein is consequently expressed in cells incapillary walls, causing roughening of the wall and leading to blood clotting that in turn causes raised blood pressure and heart failure within a few years.

    In what proportion of people getting the mRNA vaccine is not clear. More info anyone?

    A typical review of an application like Pfizer’s takes 10 months. The agency granted Pfizer a “priority review” for its vaccine earlier this month, which signifies that staff will strive to finish the review of the application within six months. At the same time, he FDA has said it does not expect the process to take that long — a view echoed even by President Biden.

    The text of a draft of the bill, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News from U.S. Senate sources not authorized to leak it, shows the plan is 2,701 pages long.

    The text, which Breitbart News is publishing here so the public can see what Congress is doing in secret, shows the plan is far more sprawling and expansive than GOP senators who backed advancing it without text even existing led their constituents to believe.

    What really proves beyond any doubt we are a sick society is where we have governments acting like the SS of Naz1 Germany to take away our freedom to move and speak just because of a few people who died of a virus that’s arguable no worse than any flu, yet at the same time sanctions the murder of thousands of babies through abortion just because the bearer didn’t want to have the healthy baby born as it would be too inconvenient. That’s how sick we have become.

That’s how sick we have become.

      We have lockdowns and mask mandates – and campaigns to be both vaccinated and tested – because it is a public health emergency that has now lasted 18 months. But that’s what it is – a public health emergency.

      If we did not have lockdowns, mask mandates, and social distancing protocols, then the numbers of people infected with the Delta Variant could grow exponentially, and quite fast. Then hospitals and morgues get overloaded.

      Most citizens accept these restrictions as being for the greater social good. And I think it’s reasonable (and in fact admirable) that most people do.

      Your views about the termination of pregnancies are your own business – but I strongly believe in the FREEDOM of every woman to manage her own reproductive health, and to decide whether she wishes to carry any pregnancy to term. From my point of view it is absolutely not an issue that governments (and especially males) have any rights or any business having a say in.

      If your religious beliefs mean that you do not support abortions, then fine, but that does not give you (or anyone else) the right to impose your religious views on anyone else. That is the reverse of freedom – it’s what the Taliban do.

    Anyone notice that this current Sydney outbreak is at the same time as last year’s outbreak.

    ie, winter.. when weather is cooler, and people tend to stay inside more.

    Come on summer, your warmth is welcome ! 🙂

    This sounds like good news. Finally, something simple to stop covid. What could go wrong. Spray in nose, covid cannot access nose cells. Covid blocker Nasal Spray!!!

    This Israel manufactured, Canadian design, non-evasive nasal spray stops the covid virus from get access to nose cells through use of nitric oxide as a mechanical and chemical barrier.

    In UK tests, Israel tests, and so …

    “…can reduce the viral loads in confirmed COVID-19 cases by 95% in 24 hours and 99% in 72 hours, a press release said on Sunday.”

    https://itrade.gov.il/singapore/2021/07/27/sanotize-rolls-out-anti-covid-nasal-spray/

    There were also no adverse health events recorded in the UK trial, or in over 7,000 self-administered treatments given in the Canadian clinical trials, SaNOtize indicated.

    https://www.jpost.com/health-science/anti-viral-nasal-spray-effective-against-covid-19-673481

    An anti-viral nasal spray called Enovid that was developed in Canada and tested in the UK can reduce the viral loads in confirmed COVID-19 cases by 95% in 24 hours and 99% in 72 hours, a press release said on Sunday.

    The Israeli-manufactured spray can be used up to five times a day after coming in contact with viruses, according to the release. It’s suitable for children as young as 12 years old, and the Ministry of Health approved it in January this year. It will go on sale in the coming week.

    We know the saying about people who keep doing the same thing expecting a different outcome as being insane. Well, we can also say politicians who keep telling us the current lockdown is just for a short period and keep repeating it over and over a much longer periods are liars. When will it get through people’s head that is the reality? Or are most people that thick headed?

      No. lockdowns don’t work-unless they are really savage and Chinese style.

      We need to start calling them for what they are-house arrest or regional arrest. So either an open prison centred on your home or one centred on the area where you live.

      I know I disagree with Jo on this, but lets see it for what it is. In the case of Oz you are going through repeated pain with so few cases. Which is not to say that people don’t need to act responsibly and that the vulnerable need to be protected. That surely isn’t done by quarantining even the healthy?

        Greater Brisbane (Qld) has gone into another week’s lockdown

        Maybe the game plan is to return to early history?

        One could consider this as a return to a “penal colony” and, with a few more fines and arrests, a return to “full convict settlement”?

          I have been pondering for some time whether Oz is a huge castle keeping the barbarians (the rest of the world) out, or whether it is a vast open prison (with numerous home arrests aka lockdowns) Those living in one state will have one view, those living in another a different view.

        Yes, lockdowns don’t work – we’ve has over a year to prove that is the case. The actions performed by our state governments are totally disproportionate. Even the official figures are proof of that. The situation has to be treated with care otherwise things will spiral out of control and then we’ll he dangerously close to martial law. I prefer we don’t have any more political activism and hope the politicians loosen up soon. If they don’t I will not be surprised things will get very ugly. Any talk of lockdowns continuing to the end of the year or beyond are potentially a recipe for chaos. Too many small businesses are already collapsing. As I read somewhere else that is one of the reasons for the Great Reset – get rid of all small businesses and centralise everything with big government and big business – exactly what happens in a fascist state, as distinct from a communist one. I hope and pray our politicians come to their sense soon.

    This is what happens when police step over the line and turn into SS-like fascist thugs. What they have done is not only illegal but evil. One can’t even be at home complying with the lockdown rules without police harassing private citizens in their own homes. What next? Storm troopers breaking into home for little or no reason?

        I doubt anything will be done since most people are too scared and afraid to do anything out of the comport zone. The few that are political activists of some form or another and protest in the streets will just be theatre for the majority, and will give the officialdom all the excuses they need to turn on the screws even more. It’s already happened and if necessary will continue until the whole population is subdued if necessary. It’s just the way it is. I’m not sure if it was all by design but it’s certainly how it’s being played out.

        It amuses me somewhat to see some political activists clamour how we the people must act now before it’s too late. Of course they have been saying that for decades. The difference now though is we are getting closer to the end game where the globalists do want to take over and strip away the sovereign rights of all Western nations, if not the whole world. There is really nothing we can do to stop the train. It’s too big and too powerful.

    Another short extension to the Brisbane Lockdown and what sounds like a potentially much longer extension to the Sydney lockdown?

    I hope people in the general community are keener than most on this board to have the vaccine as the ending of the lockdowns seem to be firmly linked to high levels of vaccination.

    Caught the end of a discussion about a 20% pay cut for polis and bureaucrats, and the sneering repost from the anti side was, ‘So you are going to cut doctor’s and health workers pay?’ And I thought why not? They are doing stuff all to treat covid19 patients. They are pretty well instructed to stand back and just watch what happens, by their captured organisations, until they can be handed expensive medications by Big Pharma. One of the few interventions is the use of steroids at a stage of the illness, and that came from the FLCCC guys, via a one single trial, that almost succeeded in failing , by giving a tiny dose. I’m hearing about ventilators, and that is like returning to the dark ages of the early pandemic. Maybe like electro shock therapy, they have refined their use?

    This intrigues me from the reply I received from the people running the HCQ trial down in Melbourne.
    “We are harmonising our data with similar trials internationally, to allow data sharing and complementary analyses of results.”
    I thought the object would be to save people’s lives, by getting useful information out as quickly as possible? And I’m pretty sure someone somewhere has said, ‘numbers are a universal language?’

    Re the previous comments in respect to Novavax.

    Certainly correct that we don’t know whether the spike protein Unexpectedly migrates As the Janese study indicates happens with the gene technology vaccines.

    However, it Novavax has been developed according to conventional vax technology. Even a Robert Malone, the pioneer of mRNA technology , is optimistic about the efficacy of Novavax.

    My concern is that there is an unexplained delay in its production & distribution. No suggestion it is because of problems with the vax itself. Opposition from vax Pharma rivals?

    The cognitive alarm of the doomed

    I like this bit as it explains succintly one reason why people get vaccinated:

    It’s very scary to step outside that narrative, just as it would be very hard for the average cow heading for the slaughterhouse to step outside the herd. It’s not spite or misery loving company that causes them to put pressure upon you, it’s merely an understandable preference for a belief in a nice, easy, and essentially good world instead of the fallen planet ruled by evil sociopathy that it actually is.

      This comment from the link I posted above caught my eye. I didn’t realise Sky News YouTube account was suspended.

      Sky News Australia got suspended on Youtube for covering the protests. Evil is spiteful (wrath) but I wonder about forcing people like holding down because doesn’t Satan need permission, isn’t there some rule? Who knows more about this? The govs and media and NPCs fear the control group, reminding them of it and your perfect health enrages them. I heard it called immune privilege as a joke. Very Harrison Bergeron. Bitchute joke videos on the NHS calling people who ‘didn’t’ get it ‘selfish’ – literally how? Either it protects them, or no-one. Misery loves company. Useful idiots turn angry, I have seen it. They will turn angry that you didn’t go along. Classic narcissism and projection. My own idiotic elderly relations nagged the other old ones into it and are trying the Karen thing on me. However much data I have, mentioning the reproductive issues already known they literally don’t care. They’d rather be conformists making threats about ‘not being able to go anywhere’ and make their own unwilling grandkids sterile. I can see why God makes us mortal. If we lived too long, we’d meddle too much. I understand the cult of Molech because those relatives would totally burn a baby if it was expected. Conformity is evil.

    Communications watchdog’s role in question as Sky News Australia cops YouTube suspension
    Evil is certainly increasing it’s influence. I have no doubt it will continue to grow like a cancer and so things will get a lot worse, sadly. This is mostly due to the apathy of most Australians who don’t give a damn or don’t have a clue as to what is happening. The longer that remains the situation the worse it will get.
