How Deep is that Swamp? Science papers silenced. Even the former head of MI-6 was pressured to stay silent

Even the former Head of MI-6 was warned to say nothing about the origins of Covid. The Swamp is so deep, and the corruption or infiltration of the West is so complete, that even at the highest levels in both government advice and in science, people were being censored.

Notice how the collectivists have changed the meaning of the word “conspiracy”. How do we discuss “a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.” when even the word we most want to use is now used as a namecalling label, the implies the user is delusional. The derision is now automatically assumed. Who does that serve?

Even Sharri Markson uses the term “conspiracy” with the new definition.

Our language is being destroyed. Gradually key words are weaponised against free thinkers.


….

The paper by Piplani et al (including Professor Petrosky) that was repeatedly rejected without the paper even being looked at. The authors expected a very different response when they submitted it. Normally, this kind of topical controversial paper would have been accepted quickly by journals wanting to grab the limelight and headlines.

It was eventually published in Nature in 2021. The paper showed that SARS-2 was extremely well adapted to attach to human ACE2 receptors, much more than any animal version of ACE2.

These findings show that the earliest known SARS-CoV-2 isolates were surprisingly well adapted to bind strongly to human ACE2, helping explain its efficient human to human respiratory transmission.  (Piplani et al) 

This suggests the virus was not a product of natural forces. The normal evolutionary path in a “jump” from one species to the next would find a virus that could bind partly to receptors from two species at the same time. After “jumping” to a new species, different selection forces would then cause it to adapt to the new species.

The last man to speak in the video above was David Asher, the main investigator from the US State Dept looking at the origins of Covid.

David Asher speaks further below — he was surprised that US intelligence knew so much, yet said and did so little for so long.

He was not aware of the strange flu at the Miliary Games of October 2019 in Wuhan until 14 months later when someone in the military called him.

Notice at The Military Games — was that President Xi launching it? Would he have knowingly released a highly infectious bioweapon at an event he was present at? Perhaps if he knew that it would not be released til he left.

Finally, the Bolt interview with Sharri Markson discussing how the ABC effectively works for China.

Sell the ABC now. It works for China against the Australians who are forced to pay for it.

    I think more people will soon wake up to the real story. It’s not about the virus nor the vaccine; it’s about instigating a tyrannical regime change.

    Israel has revoked all Green Passes issued to date, with the new guidelines limiting Covid-19 immunity status only to those who naturally recovered or received their latest vaccine shot within the last six months.

    At least 1.5 million Israelis lost their Green Passes as the new rules kicked in on Sunday, according to the Jerusalem Post, while Channel 12 news estimated the number to be close to 2 million. Those eligible have been issued a replacement certificate.

    The new guidelines stipulate that a person maintains their immunity status only for six months after receiving their second or third dose of the vaccine. Those with natural immunity also get a pass, but must receive a vaccine shot six months after recovery – or lose the privilege.

    Booster jab every 6 months? 1.5mn double-dosed & recovered Israelis lose Green Pass privileges as stricter Covid-19 rules kick in

      Interesting addition to I think more people will soon wake up to the real story

      Theranos Scandal: the Real Story

      Originally published at The Naked Hedgie blog; it’s a rather lengthy article, so I broke it up in three parts. You can also get the full story in a fairly packed and fast-paced 43-min. video report below.

      The epic rise of Theranos and its equally epic unravelling has turned out to be one of the most spectacular stories in recent years. It went down as the largest fraud since Enron and the greatest scandal in Silicon Valley’s history. But media narratives have invariably focused on the company’s young founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes. Countless reports and documentaries are all based on the unlikely assumption that Theranos was her own brainchild and that she herself was in control of events. We’ll consider a different perspective here: one which places Theranos in context of the current pandemic and the coercive measures planned by the global health authorities. As you’ll see, the real story of Theranos will prove very relevant to our present predicament. But most importantly, there is a very significant silver lining to this story. If you happen to feel pessimistic about the way things are going now, the real story of Theranos will give you encouragement and a great dose of optimism.

      THE MEDIA NARRATIVE

      Theranos was started in 2003 by then 19-year old Stanford University dropout Elizabeth Holmes. She claimed that she had invented a miniature blood analyzer that could perform as many as 240 different blood tests from just a single drop of blood. Traditionally, blood testing is done by drawing one or several vials of blood from patients to be analyzed on special lab devices developed by companies like Siemens, Abbott Labs, Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp. Holmes claimed that her portable analyzers would revolutionize the process, “democratize diagnostics,” and make the tests so affordable that people could make periodic snapshots of their personal health over time.

      That story enabled the audacious 19-year old to launch her venture, raise a total of over $750 million dollars and assemble a board of directors counting some of the world’s most powerful individuals. Theranos obtained funding from a number of high profile capitalists including the billionaire venture capitalists Tim Draper and Don Lucas Sr, Rupert Murdoch, the Walton family, Betsy Devos, Larry Ellison, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and companies like Walgreens and Safeway.

      Theranos Board of Directors included former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, former Defence Secretary William Perry, future Defence Secretary General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, former U.S. Senator and Chair of the Armed Services Committee Sam Nunn, power lawyer David Boies, Retired U.S. Navy Admiral Gary Roughead, and former CEO of Wells Fargo Richard Kovachevic. It was indeed the board to take over the world.

      But there was a big problem at the core of this venture. Namely, Holmes’ inventions were mostly imaginary, her technology didn’t work, and her mission was based on wishful thinking. So how was she able to build her house of cards with such an impressive façade and make herself into America’s favorite entrepreneur and youngest female “self-made” billionaire? The narrative was that it was down to her supposed brilliance, her story, conviction, charisma, and her disarming personal charm. We’ve been led to believe that those were the weapons she used to persuade some of the most powerful people in the US military and political establishment to become directors of her startup and to convince a group of seasoned investors and experienced business people to back her venture with hundreds of millions of dollars.

      That story is hugely implausible, but it is nevertheless being told and retold in the media without much critical analysis or skepticism, only allowing for the possibility that Holmes’s one co-conspirator was her partner and boyfriend Ramesh (Sunny) Balwani.

      The primary, covering role of the Intelligence (so-called) community in the concerted attack on President Trump, seeking and finally winning his blatant overthrow by fraudulent “election”, became utterly clear in 2018 as the attacks continued, one after another, ever more stupidly and obviously; it was then that I began openly calling the coup d’etat a “rogue CIA In-Country Regime-Change Operation”. It was a textbook example, of utter lying, and the highest of crimes, by all in government and the media, throughout, and above all protected by a criminal Intelligence (which Edward Snowden tried to warn us about, though few indeed understood).

      They are simply all criminals. This first became utterly apparent, by the way, when the Democrat “party” (no longer a legitimate political force) included in its party platform the intention to criminalize global warming “deniers” (anyone in fact who questioned the consensus “climate science”, as any competent scientist must, as it is ALL — ALL — backwards and upside down thinking about the physical world).

      In short, it was the CIA and related criminal Intelligence behind the covid19 attack upon the world, but primarily upon the United States of America, in order to finish Trump and with him the country, and of course the entire West. It is all a lie; the only thing that is not a lie is the fact that the virus was designed, as noted in the post: I have informed, from my own experience (having caught it twice) many times that it gets past the body’s outer defenses, in the mouth and throat, and into the gut, very quickly. And it is also obvious to me that they planned from the first to inaugurate a continuing vaccination “mandate”, because it is the vaccinations that enable the appearance of new strains of the virus. And I did not need any witless doctor to tell me that; all that I write is from my own experience.

        Lobbying is unremarkable. The question, as it has been for some time, is what priorities define public policy, or characterise those charged with making and implementing such policy or policies? And, apart from some degree of venality, that remains mysterious. The ABC (and doubtless others) is exercised about a treatment called ‘sotrovimab’:

        cost[ing] around $2,202 for a supply of 8 milliliters, depending on the pharmacy you visit.

        And Ivermectin? Still banned for the virus but costing $23 for three tablets.

        So, what ideology informs Australia’s medical and especially epidemiological authorities? That mystery remains. Being resident in South Australia, I suggest that SA should take the initiative here. No, they’ll say, the TGA says not, the WHO says not, and so and so on.

        Recall that SA makes great play of allowing women the vote in 1894. Such innovation! Well, there was no TGA (or the like) to say “no”, nor, apparently, did the governor. Now, SA shows no such spirit. And with that we all lose. But again the question remains, what is the ideological reason that grounds this state of affairs?

      Yeah but heres the thing …..it appears that after about 5 shots, your immune system is trashed via ADE, so only the unvaxxed will survive once the vaxxed are taken out by any old bug that thier immune system has been “blinded” to.

      “This suggests the virus was not a product of natural forces.”

      It could also suggest that the approach taken has surprisingly shown that

      Of course I can’t speak for Gee Aye but he might ask if you have read the article. The summary is rather different from the “punch line” seized upon by commenters her none of which responses I’ve read so far comment o the different approach taken.

      “Spike protein exhibited the highest binding to human (h)ACE2 of all the species tested, forming the highest number of hydrogen bonds with hACE2. Interestingly, pangolin ACE2 showed the next highest binding affinity despite having a relatively low sequence homology, whereas the affinity of monkey ACE2 was much lower despite its high sequence similarity to hACE2. These differences highlight the power of a structural versus a sequence-based approach to cross-species analyses. ACE2 species in the upper half of the predicted affinity range (monkey, hamster, dog, ferret, cat) have been shown to be permissive to SARS-CoV-2 infection, supporting a correlation between binding affinity and infection susceptibility. These findings show that the earliest known SARS-CoV-2 isolates were surprisingly well adapted to bind strongly to human ACE2, helping explain its efficient human to human respiratory transmission.”

    How Deep is that Swamp?

    It’s a bottomless pit.

    A law unto itself with no oversight and no accountability.

    It has become an internationally linked enemy of democracy. Five Eyes is itself a conspiracy.

    Many years ago in the days of Whitlam, the Attorney-general of the day, Lionel Murphy, raided the offices of ASIO in Melbourne, because of his concerns that ASIO was holding back material and refusing to respond to the Government’s concern that a Ustasha cell was operating in Australia.

    There was outrage in the swamp. Murphy was accused of being a KGB agent. However, the raid made the point at the time. And, ASIO made some adjustments making it more responsive to its democratically elected masters. Murphy was not a KGB agent. They knew that but it made no difference to their attacks on him.

    Since then, unfortunately, it seems to have drifted back to its bad old ways.

    Ask questions today and you will again be called an agent of Russia; working for the Kremlin; or a conspiracy nut-job. No doubt the security agencies in Australia also has a feed in to their ABC – which may account for why successive Coalition governments have been unprepared to take action against the ABC Board or amend the legislation to ensure it acts in accordance with its existing charter.

    Perhaps there is need for another raid to find out who is working for the Australian people and who is not. Who in the Morrison Government has the courage to be the next Lionel Murphy?

        “Following Labor’s victory at the 1972 federal election, Gough Whitlam appointed Murphy as Attorney-General and Minister for Customs and Excise. He oversaw a number of reforms, establishing the Family Court of Australia, the Law Reform Commission, and the Australian Institute of Criminology, and developing the Family Law Act 1975, which fully established no-fault divorce. He also authorised the 1973 Murphy raids on ASIO. In 1975, following the death of Douglas Menzies, Murphy was appointed to the High Court. He is the most recent politician to be appointed to the court.

        On the court, Murphy was known for his radicalism and judicial activism. However, his final years were marred by persistent allegations of corruption. He was convicted of perverting the course of justice in 1985, but had the conviction overturned on appeal and was acquitted at a second trial.

        In 1986, a commission was established to determine whether he was fit to remain on the court, but it was abandoned when Murphy announced that he was suffering from terminal cancer.”

          You’re right of course Dennis.

          They got him in the end.

          However, his activism and courage brought an out-of-control security agency under a greater level of oversight.

          That new oversight wasn’t as good as it needed to be – and that’s demonstrated by the appalling case of the “Croatian Six” who were set up, verballed and goaled for 15 years. All the time innocent. Material was with-held from their trial by the security agencies. Even Roger Rogerson the notorious crook NSW copper was involved.

          There are other well known public cases of the Australian security agencies acting well beyond their power. Timor-Leste comes to mind and the work of Bernard Collaery in exposing the appalling behaviour of Australia to a close friend and neighbour.

          The Sydney Hilton affair (I won’t use the explosion word lest I go into moderation again) is yet another.

          You need to take a closer look.

          No. Public resistance is first, and above all, required. We know the legislative branch in the USA eagerly participated in the unending coup d’etat against President Trump, from the beginning.

          It will, I write again, take either mass civil disobedience, or revolutionary war. Probably, in the end, both (knowing just how deluded EVERYONE is now).

            No. You over generalize.

            The correct conclusion would be that “elements of the USA Congress eagerly participated in the undermining of President Trump; and, those elements were supported by elements of the security services and the media”.

            Your option is what the enemies of democracy and the USA want to see.

            Revolutionary war will not happen. The American voter will vote to return the Congress majority to the Republican Party in the mid-terms next year.

            Following that, if President Trump runs in 2024, he’ll wipe the floor with the Democrats. Then you’ll see a serious cleanout and a change in the legislative basis for the ongoing control of the security services.

            As it should be in a democracy.

How would the ABC, the HRC, the Green Bank, the wind farms survive if we said no more money? They would collapse overnight albeit with much gnashing of teeth. Just think of how wonderful Australia would be if the ARC was defunded along with the CSIRO and the whole university grants program. We could get rid of the various writers festivals and even the Archibald Prize which refuses paintings from Johannes Leak but accepts some Aboriginal scribbles. Oh for a PM and Ministers with the courage to fight back. I have a dream of the ABC dams program whereby we build dams across the North funded by the savings created by cancelling the ABC.

      Interesting to note comments about our Australian Broadcasting Corporation working for the CCP.
      They seem to bend over backwards to accommodate China’s behavior – particularly when discussing CO2 emissions. But also, I notice that the only stories concerning India covered by ‘Aunty’ revolve around crime, poverty and mismanagement. India and China have some testy border disputes you see, so India has to be portrayed as a failure and not worthy of respect. They are the 5th or 6th largest economy (depending on how its measured) and by far the largest democracy and get on with the west very well.
      No – I’m not Indian or even related to any. Just curious about the disrespect shown by our media.

    On covid, but not origins. It’s interesting to hear about possible incorrect vaccinating on one hand, and nurses claiming there are a lot of young men experiencing heart problems, soon after a shot. I would have thought young men, who are more muscular, would have a greater need for blood circulation in their muscles, and so would be more likely, to get the vaccine shot into a blood vessel? So it may not be the vaccine directly causing the heart problems?

      Good point FC
      But I think unlikely. It is hard to inject an artery intentionally. It can happen accidentally but I don’t think the ratio of young men can be explained that way.

      Heart problems are due to the spike protein affecting the endothelium of the heart arteries. How did the spike protein get there? By the vaccine.

        39. The subject matter of this Motion for a Preliminary Injunction and its devastating effects on members of the military compel me to conclude and conduct accordingly as follows:

        a) None of the ordered Emergency Use Covid 19 vaccines can or will provide better immunity than an infection-recovered person;

        b) All three of the EUA Covid 19 vaccines (Comirnaty is not available), in the age group and fitness level of my patients, are more risky, harmful and dangerous than having no vaccine at all, whether a person is Covid recovered or facing a Covid 19 infection;

        c) Direct evidence exists and suggests that all persons who have received a Covid 19 Vaccine are damaged in their cardiovascular system in an irreparable and irrevocable manner;

        d) Due to the Spike protein production that is engineered into the user’s genome, each such recipient of the Covid 19 Vaccines already has micro clots in their cardiovascular system that present a danger to their health and safety;

        e) That such micro clots over time will become bigger clots by the very nature of the shape and composition of the Spike proteins being produced and said proteins are found throughout the user’s body, including the brain;

        f) That at the initial stage this damage can only be discovered by a biopsy or Magnetic Resonance Image (“MRI”) scan;

        g) That due to the fact that there is no functional myocardial screening currently being conducted, it is my professional opinion that substantial foreseen risks currently exist, which require proper screening of all flight crews.

        h) That, by virtue of their occupations, said flight crews present extraordinary risks to themselves and others given the equipment they operate, munitions carried thereon and areas of operation in close proximity to populated areas.

        i) That, without any current screening procedures in place, including any Aero Message (flight surgeon notice) relating to this demonstrable and identifiable risk, I must and will therefore ground all active flight personnel who received the vaccinations until such time as the causation of these serious systemic health risks can be more fully and adequately assessed.

        j) That, based on the DOD’s own protocols and studies, the only two valuable methodologies to adequately assess this risk are through MRI imaging or cardio biopsy which must be performed.

        k) That, in accordance with the foregoing, I hereby recommend to the Secretary of Defense that all pilots, crew and flight personnel in the military service who required hospitalization from injection or received any Covid 19 vaccination be grounded similarly for further dispositive assessment.

        l) That this Court should grant an immediate injunction to stop the further harm to all military personnel to protect the health and safety of our active duty, reservists and National Guard troops.

    Why does none of this surprise me. In my field we consider health risk as a matter of course and what I see our various governments doing is paying no attention at all to proper health risk assessments. They talk about modelling as if it is the whole truth – yet models are only as good as the assumptions made and the algorithms entered. You need to define the source then the exposure route (the pathway by which someone can be exposed) then the actual risk can be calculated. By ignoring these steps we end up with ridiculous bans – such as golf where there is so little risk it would never come above the radar. Never has “Garbage in Garbage out” been so true. the MSM is hopeless as they do not understand how these things happen and swallow all the CHOs comments as if he is God. Why do they not publish their modelling? primarily because someone with experience would pull it to pieces and show that it is not a good basis for making these monumental decisions. Where is the advice coming from? probably the pharmaceutical companies and of course they don’t have a conflict of interest – do they? I will go back in my locked cell now…

    Great article.

    So much yet to be uncovered. Many people believed in early 2020 that the alleged “wet market” of the origin of the virus was highly dubious, & the most likely origin was accidental escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

    Since then, we have slowly learned of the financial support for SARS virology research at Wuhan coming, amazingly, from the USA. Indeed, research into such viruses was also conducted by Dr. Ralph Baric at the University of North Carolina.

    The timeline for the escape/release of the virus is now October 2019, coinciding with the Military Games in Wuhan. No wonder China accused the Americans of releasing the virus at the Games.

    The truth? Who knows? And the media have the cheek to abuse people for “conspiracy theories”!!!

      The ‘wet market’ origin and the ‘accidental release’ origin are not necessarily separate. All it would take is some underpaid flunky in the laboratory responsible for properly disposing of the carcasses of experimental animals thinking that they could make some extra money by sneaking them out of the lab and selling them in the market. There’s no real evidence for this, but if this is what happened, the person responsible for taking the carcasses would have done their best to avoid leaving any evidence that would get them fired.

      A fairly good understanding of the origin is now available to the public. The FOIA request returned the full details of the project that EcoHealth Alliance was paid to work on, it includes all the key components:

      * They were working with coronavirus.

      * They took many samples from bats, including the bats in Yunnan, China which are the closest natural match to our current pandemic virus.

      * They cultured the bat virus samples in cells to boost up the numbers.

      * They systematically exposed humanized mice (with modified ACE2 receptors, thus human equivalent) to virus from the cell cultures until something crossed over into the mice.

      * They repeatedly spread the virus from mouse to mouse (serial passage) in order to adapt the virus to this new host and provide a reservoir.

      * They then experimented on the mice to establish what kind of potential treatments might work.

      This is all clearly documented in their original grant proposal (which was NIH funded), and later on when Dr Daszak presented his “DEFUSE” proposal (which was rejected), in that proposal he admitted that yes they had established a virus amongst humanized mice and tested both vaccines and monoclonal antibodies. EcoHealth Alliance did the work June 2017 to May 2018 but then submitted the progress report back to the NIH quite late in September 2020. That report has also been obtained under FOIA, although The Intercept journalists claim some information is still missing … the NIH grant titled “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence” actually was started in 2014 and progress reports from the early part of the project are not available to the public at this stage. Maybe that early part is not so important, but EcoHealth Alliance got funding from other places also, which might be interesting.

      If you search the various keywords: EcoHealth Alliance, serial passage, gain of function, humanized mice, etc. you can get a download of those documented. It was “The Intercept” news who put in the original FOI request. None of this is theory, it’s all backed by their own documentation.

      The reason the virus binds so neatly with the human ACE2 receptor is that the unnatural reservoir animal (humanized mice) have exactly the same receptor, and there was plenty of time for full adaptation there.

      The remaining unknown parts of the story are: when exactly it crossed out of the humanized mice and into the general population, and whether this was deliberate or accidental.

      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7428442/

      Given the number of times old, stored sewage samples have pinged positive … looks like it must have been released late 2019. There were 3 researchers at the Wuhan lab who ended up in hospital November 2019 and there were multiple reports of sickness at the military games late October 2019 … that’s plausible evidence that it was around that time. I got sick in Sydney, in December 2019 with something very close to the modern description of COVID (long lingering dry cough, eventually going deep into the lungs and getting very wet, tiredness, low fever, sticky pale yellow phlegm), and I have followed up with a bunch of people in Sydney who all got sick with a similar thing around the same time, many described it as not particularly flu-like but very stubborn and difficult to shift. My wife got sick soon after I did in 2019, and she lost her sense of smell for several months, which has never happened ever before in her life, and it is not 100% recovered even now … there’s no way that was a normal flu.

      Who knew what, and when did they know it? That part is difficult to prove … seems unlikely that Fauci could have been completely ignorant, and there were eyewitnesses at the Wuhan military games saying that residents had been instructed to stay inside.

    Scariest, smartest virus. Ever …

    “The key is vaccines, what we know about this virus is it will hunt down those people who are unvaccinated,” the Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

      She has no shame.

      Annastacia Palaszczuk ties border opening to hospital funding

      Queensland’s border with Victoria and NSW could remain shut until the commonwealth agrees to a major increase in hospital funding, Annastacia Palaszczuk says.

      “I am not going to put Queenslanders at risk until both of those issues are sorted out,” Ms Palaszczuk said on Friday. “Which means a big injection of funds from the federal government into the states to make sure the hospitals are able to cope with the growth (in cases) that will happen.”

      But Daniel Andrews says he intends to reopen his state’s border with NSW as soon as possible.

      “Once we get to 80 per cent it’s my intention to have freedom of movement – that’s always been our goal,” the Victorian Premier said. “We just have to wait and see where things are at that point.”

      The Queensland ultimatum comes amid a row over when the border will reopen, with Ms Palaszczuk indicating she may not lift restrictions ahead of the Christmas holiday period. The national cabinet had agreed to a road map that recommended interstate restrictions end once Covid-19 vaccine coverage reached 80 per cent.

      Her comments follow increasing concerns among states and territories that hospitals will not be able to cope with a surge of infections as restrictions ease.

      In a letter to Health Minister Greg Hunt on Thursday, state and territory officials warned their health systems were under “unrelenting strain” and urged the commonwealth to split the cost of operating the public hospital system until the middle of 2023.

      “We need an urgent, practical, collaborative funding solution until we get to a ‘living with Covid’ point and the national funding model has time to reflect these higher costs,” the letter reads. “We need an urgent, practical, collaborative funding solution until we get to a ‘living with Covid’ point and the national funding model has time to reflect these higher costs.”

      In their letter to Mr Hunt, state and territory health ministers said capacity issues were exacerbated by patients who were ready for discharge but forced to remain in hospital because “they are unable to access the appropriate aged care or disability supports”.

      “Our ability to respond is already being outstripped by demand, which is increasing as we move into the next phase of the pandemic,” they wrote.

      In response, Mr Hunt said: “All ministers recently signed on to a five-year agreement which includes an additional $35bn in funding. We‘ve also invested an additional $6bn in hospitals … through the Covid-19 pandemic”.

      Scott Morrison also rejected Ms Palaszczuk’s demand for more funding, telling reporters the states had been “showered in cash” and had almost two years to prepare their hospital systems.

      “The pandemic should not be used as an excuse for shakedown politics,” the Prime Minister said.

      “There has been a lot of talk about what the responsibilities of the states are. I can tell you what one of them is – run your public hospitals and get them ready to deal with any surge demand that would come,” he said.

      “Our government has increased funding to hospitals across the nation by over 70 per cent since we came to government. The states have increased their funding by just over 40 per cent,” he said.

      The Australian on Friday reported that health officials told a recent roundtable the hospital system was buckling – not just from increased admissions but also from workforce burnout and the diversion of staff to testing and vaccination centres.

      At a press conference on Friday, Ms Palaszczuk said there were two key thresholds to reopening – high vaccination rates and increased hospital capacity – and that it would be “ irresponsible” to open international borders until those two demands were met.

      Ms Palaszczuk declined to say how high vaccination coverage would need to be for borders to reopen and did not confirm they would once 80 per cent of adults had been inoculated. “There is a lot of work that needs to happen and we have got to get this right. There is no use rushing,” she said.

    The forces of the Left / swamp are powerful and deep and very, very evil. They stopped at nothing to get rid of President Trump and if it were not for the loyalty and professionalism of the Secret Service they probably would have murdered him.

      In a video Christopher Monckton warned Australians the “watch the back” of PM Tony Abbott, and he said that the Canadian and the New Zealand PMs were also being undermined by Un globalists.

      It seems obvious to me today that our PM Morrison is also being undermined and that too many here are falling for the propaganda directed against him, as they were oblivious to the “relentless negativity” against PM Abbott.

      The indicators are many.

      The globalist, leftist, crony capitalists and politicians are ruthless and determined to get what they want from us, “the inevitability of gradualness” which is a socialist Fabian Society saying. We argue and debate climate hoax and warming creative accounting while they are fully aware of their scare campaign to manipulate people.

      And now the power of globalism is behind our Federal and State governments pushing for net zero emissions, cooperate or deal with the threats of trade sanctions and other negative impacts on national prosperity.

      Perhaps fewer bright clouds leads to warming of the ocean.
      If this is the paper that I think it is, I heard the author interviewed on, would you believe it, the ABC then whole thing is an unbelievable joke. The claim was that warmer oceans caused less cloud cover resulting in positive feedback. It never seemed to occur to the (pseudo) scientist that less cloud just might result in warmer sea surface temperature. I almost gagged just listening to it.

      Risk prediction of covid-19 related death and hospital admission in adults after covid-19 vaccination: national prospective cohort study

      Results

      Of 6 952 440 vaccinated patients in the derivation cohort, 5 150 310 (74.1%) had two vaccine doses. Of 2031 covid-19 deaths and 1929 covid-19 hospital admissions, 81 deaths (4.0%) and 71 admissions (3.7%) occurred 14 days or more after the second vaccine dose.

      The risk algorithms included age, sex, ethnic origin, deprivation, body mass index, a range of comorbidities, and SARS-CoV-2 infection rate. Incidence of covid-19 mortality increased with age and deprivation, male sex, and Indian and Pakistani ethnic origin.
      Cause specific hazard ratios were highest for patients with Down’s syndrome (12.7-fold increase), kidney transplantation (8.1-fold), sickle cell disease (7.7-fold), care home residency (4.1-fold), chemotherapy (4.3-fold), HIV/AIDS (3.3-fold), liver cirrhosis (3.0-fold), neurological conditions (2.6-fold), recent bone marrow transplantation or a solid organ transplantation ever (2.5-fold), dementia (2.2-fold), and Parkinson’s disease (2.2-fold). Other conditions with increased risk (ranging from 1.2-fold to 2.0-fold increases) included chronic kidney disease, blood cancer, epilepsy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coronary heart disease, stroke, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, thromboembolism, peripheral vascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.

      A similar pattern of associations was seen for covid-19 related hospital admissions. No evidence indicated that associations differed after the second dose, although absolute risks were reduced. The risk algorithm explained 74.1% (95% confidence interval 71.1% to 77.0%) of the variation in time to covid-19 death in the validation cohort. Discrimination was high, with a D statistic of 3.46 (95% confidence interval 3.19 to 3.73) and C statistic of 92.5. Performance was similar after each vaccine dose. In the top 5% of patients with the highest predicted covid-19 mortality risk, sensitivity for identifying covid-19 deaths within 70 days was 78.7%.

      Conclusion

      This population based risk algorithm performed well showing high levels of discrimination for identifying those patients at highest risk of covid-19 related death and hospital admission after vaccination.

    This is not a conspiracy ‘theory’. Covid has not an ‘accident’. This is an in your face, more than a decade of planning, multi mode attack on our system of life/government by the CCP which explains why google, facebook, and all of the ‘mainstream’ news outlets are repeating the same narrative and official blocking treatments for covid, covid origins, China’s involvement, and so on.

    There is no physical evidence to support the assertion the covid virus came from nature. There are no viruses that are like covid in nature. The covid spike has specific features such as the ability to cross the blood brain barrier which are rare in viruses and the ability to stop pain which is a novel feature (never seen in a circulating virus) that enables covid to spread because the throat cells do not produce a pain signal when covid starts its attack on our body.

    Logically, based on physical evidence, (how China reacted after and before the releases of covid in Wuhan military games and then later in Wuhan. The novel physical features of covid and its ability to spread in humans) covid did not come from nature it came from a lab.

    https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2021/06/09/dr-quay-analysis-gets-into-the-one-in-a-billion-chance-covid-came-from-nature-no-known-facts-similiar-to-prior-natural-diseases/
    “Quay said, “[T]here are just so many signatures and so many events that are consistent with a lab leak. ….of weeks before the lab leak. The Wuhan lab had only known copy of the bat virus

    There’s literally no fact that is of — that we know of that is similar to a previous natural zoonosis. So, my analysis gets into the one in a billion chance here that this could have come from nature.
    So, when something doesn’t come from nature, and the alternative is the lab leak, you have to go with that. He later added, “What I’ve done is analyze what’s called circumstantial evidence to come to the conclusion that, beyond a reasonable doubt, it came from a laboratory.”

    The covid spike protein (which is nowhere found in nature) anesthetizes our cells using a biochemical which scientists have in the US have studied. (Odd that covid has so smart in learned about this research and then was able to get this biotechnology to kill people.) Stops pain. So the covid virus which first attacks the throat and then attacks the lungs can replicate and spread to as many people as possible…. Before it attacks the lungs …. Which makes people very sick and likely bedridden.

    “Around that time, the Republican researchers said there’s evidence the virus was spreading throughout central Wuhan, just ahead of the World Military Games which, “became an international vector, spreading the virus to multiple continents around the world.”
    “On that day, the Wuhan University, less than a mile from the WIV’s headquarters, issued a notice for laboratory inspections. Hours later, the WIV’s viral sequence database disappeared from the internet. “

    “Later that evening, the institute published an announcement for bids for “security services” at the lab “to include gatekeepers, guards, video surveillance, security patrols, and people to handle the ‘registration and reception of foreign personnel,’” according to the report.”

    “A virus would be expected to have highest affinity for the receptor in its original host species, e.g. bat, with a lower initial binding affinity for the receptor of any new host, e.g. humans. However, in this case, the affinity of SARS-CoV-2 is higher for humans than for the putative original host species, bats, or for any potential intermediary host species,” the study pointed out

    “Senator Ron Johnson Shares COVID-19 Data from Public Health England, Refutes “Pandemic of The Unvaccinated” Narrative
    October 3, 2021 | Sundance | 11 Comments”

    “Ironically, Senator Johnson is forced to use the senate floor to share the information in an effort to stop government and Big Tech censorship of the discussion. Unlike the rest of the nation, the House and Senate chamber rules create a free speech zone that prohibits anyone from censoring congressional debate and discussion.”

    “In the past few weeks I’ve come to the conclusion that most provincial premiers are starting to look like Lyndon Johnson during the Vietnam era. Their Chief Medical Officers, in turn, remind me of Robert McNamara. By 1967 LBJ and McNamara were under growing attack for the failure of their Vietnam strategy and yet stubbornly insisted that the war was being won. In 1968 along came the Tet Offensive which collapsed public support for the current strategy and ended the political careers of both men.

    Fast forward to today’s pandemic, and it would seem that the Tet Offensive is now upon us.”

    More Vaccinated, More Deaths

    A comment posted there is food for thought. Only time will tell of the “ticking time bombs” indeed are real and start going of in huge numbers. If they do then expect millions of deaths as a direct result of at least some of the vaccines.

    Could it be that the vaccines are severely damaging immunity in a group (or several specific groups) of individuals with certain precondition(s) , or even DNA makeup?

    And that as second upcoming development, more and more people will have damage from the vaccines and therefore hospitalization will more often result in death, cause it takes time for vaccines to havoc the body with spike protein autoimmune disease.

    In other words, the vaccine could be a ticking time-bomb for everyone who has received it. But the bombs explode (spike protein autoimmune disease or other deadly ill effects) in time set fashion.
    Preconditions we all have in some form or other, there are thousands of different preconditions, causing that the bombs explode at different times for each of us.. But when it explodes the time for that person on this earth could very well be over: In that case: fewer hospitalizations, but more deaths in hospitals.

    I wrote some comments to this effect earlier, that our ABC has become a mouthpiece for China’s propaganda, so it’s good to see that this is now in mainstream media. But, the issue runs deeper than Wuhan. Our ABC has gone full woke and they now hate Australia. In fact they hate everything about Australia, ranging from our system of government, history, white people, the flag, the anthem, Christians, Jews and even Anzac day. If you did a global search to find out who hates Australia the most you can’t go past our own ABC and if there was a reason to chop this organisation and hand the money back to taxpayers THIS IS IT !!!.

    This 24/7 ABC media propaganda, which we pay for with hard earned taxes, is fast becoming a pandemic of a different variety and is rapidly infiltrating government institutions, universities, big corporations and left wing political parties. The source of the hatred originates from overseas and is deeply rooted in the Democrats and UN and is rapidly spreading across the west. Perhaps the most sick and disturbing elements of this new toxic culture is the push to instill “white guilt” onto young children by telling them they are privileged and cause harm to non-white children, because they are white. This combined with the even more sick and disturbing gender selection education where young children are being asked to choose their gender, right here in Victoria. This gender confusion education is perhaps the most evil form of child abuse ever to be witnessed in human history on this kind of scale and is obviously designed to destabilise our society at the expense of the most precious commodity we have, our young innocent children. Just a decade or two ago we would have put these people in jail for a very long time, but now we have them running the school system, abusing children every day and all endorsed by the state.

    What is ironical and not so surprising is to see that China is banning Woke culture as it sees it as a threat and has banned video games that have LGBTQ themes or male characters that appear as too feminine. Whilst we can blame China for spreading a virus to gain world dominance, we can’t blame them for the far worse spread of Wokeism, which we are doing all by ourselves.

    245 days and counting: Melbourne surpasses Buenos Aires and sets world record for most time spent in lockdown
    Yet their case numbers there keep making new highs (as does the whole of Australia) while our death rates are still at relatively high levels, meanwhile other countries, such as India are settling down to very low levels of both. Clearly lockdowns and the vaccines are not doing what many expected they would. We’ve already discussed what India is doing and what we are not doing to explain the clear dichotomy. I wonder how long before people actually start asking questions along the lines of “are our governments in fact committing crimes against humanity after all?”.

      I doubt very much that the questions will be along the lines of crimes against humanity. That is activist rhetoric and the activists are the ones committing the crimes.

      My crystal ball says that the next phase will be when the injections fail to have the effect touted by all the happy clappers. There is already a sort of back handed acceptance that they don’t work with the idea that the injected need to be protected from the uninjected. Fortunately that proposition is easily demolished with the simple question “why?”.

      So in my view the next questions to be asked will be what else is needed now that the injection targets have been met. Waddyamean we need antivirals?

      Pretty obvious now that our governments would rather see billions of people die before they will admit they got it wrong. Even then most will still stand their ground and commit even more evil. Anyone who votes for LNP or ALP after witnessing what is happening must be clueless, ignorant, a fool or on the side of evil.

      Why is Bolt still missing the elephant in the room and not seeing that the US is just as guilty, especially ever since they stole the election from Trump, which Bolt still refuses even to acknowledge the possibility? The reason is that Bolt is clueless or possibly even on the side of evil, just like so many of our MSM “journalists” and politicians, acting out their misdirections on a daily basis.

    The swamp is deep and wide, even Dr John Campbell, who I believe to be a caring professional, got on the Merck bandwagon previewing their “I can’t believe it isn’t ivermectin” drug. He enthusiastically claimed that if it is as good as the publicity blurb “it will bring the pandemic to a halt” and will work against all future RNA viruses. What was left unsaid is that the rona could have been wiped out a year ago with virtually the same drug.

    He even praised them for offering a discount on the US$700 [A$1,000] to third world countries. Isn’t that kind of them? Marc Antony may have said “I have come to bury Merck, not to praise them”.

    The Swamp is as deep as the Leadership allow. It is the Senior Leadership who create, maintain, allow, and protect, the Swamp.

    A whole lot of people in Leadership positions need to be removed from power and replaced with actual Leaders.

    How that happens, I don’t pretend to know. But keeping the current lot of failures is a losing proposition.

    Never in my life have I seen such an arrogant, corrupt, autocratic, shameless, gutless, bunch of worthless clowns. My dog makes better decisions than most elected officials. But then again, you get the government you deserve and voted for.

      As bad as the decisions of elected officials are, the decisions of unelected bureaucrats are worse. Much worse because there is absolutely zero accountability. Seriously, can you remember ever having a discussion with a bureaucrat which doesn’t leave you scratching your head as to what the heck they were trying to achieve?

      The thing which is clear to me is that even with the best of intentions the swamp is undrainable by conventional methods such as legislation or leadership.

      So what do I suggest? Here I agree with you to start by voting incumbents out of office. And then vote the next incumbent out of office and so on. And the single platform I will support will be accountability for individuals within the unelected bureaucracy.

      Because if there is one word which strikes fear into the hearts of bureaucrats it is accountability.

    I don’t think the problem is a conspiracy, especially if we’re talking about the general demise of the West, but we ARE experiencing a very dangerous alignment and synchronisation of various forces pulling in the same direction, all for their own reasons.

    Think of it as being in a small boat. Nobody said, “Let’s capsize the boat” but what’s happening is a few people want to see the land, others want to get on the shady side of the boat and still more are heading for the empty benches. Whoops, now too many people are on the same side of the boat and … down she goes.

    “There It Is – Study Finds Predominance of Antibody-Resistant SARS-CoV-2 Variants in Vaccine Breakthrough Cases in San Francisco Bay Area
    October 3, 2021 | Sundance | 139 Comments

    What this study finds is exactly what vaccine developer Geert Vanden Bossche (Belgium) has been predicting. The predominance of antibody-resistant SARS-CoV-2 variants in vaccine breakthrough cases from the San Francisco Bay Area, California. [DATA LINK HERE]”

      The reality is the nature of the vaccines that we are using right now and the way we are rolling them out are going to be applying the selective pressure to this virus to promote the emergence new variant. Again, this is based on sound principles. We have to look no further than chemotherapy for cancers and the emergence of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria.

      The principles are this — if you have a biological entity that is prone to mutation, and the SARS coronavirus two, like all coronaviruses, is prone to mutation, so if you have a biological entity like that and you apply a narrowly focused selective pressure that is nonlethal, and you do this over a long period of time, this is the recipe for driving the emergence of novel variant. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. Our vaccines are focused on a single protein of the virus, so the virus only has to alter one protein. And the vaccines don’t come close to conferring sterilizing immunity.

      People who are vaccinated still get infected. It only seems to be particularly good at blunting the disease. And so what that tells you, therefore, is that these vaccines in the vast majority of people are applying a nonlethal pressure, narrowly focused on one protein, and of course a vaccine rollout is occurring over a long period of time. That is the recipe for driving novel variants.

      — Dr Byram Bridle (August 2021)

      It’s such an obvious application of evolutionary theory, and what has already been observed with antibiotic resistance over many decades.

    While most Australians are asleep and our state and federal governments are turning into tyrannical regimes, Polish MP’s protest at the Polish Australian Embassy over Human Rights Violations & Authoritarianism

    October 1, 2021: The great nation of Poland has been scarred by, but have always endured and beaten, the nefarious actions of communists and authoritarians in past eras. So, when they see the threat of tyranny and authoritarian forms of social oppression, their natural instincts are primed to fend off the tyrants and tactics that come in the form of authoritarian regimes like the one we see in current day Australia.

    The group of Polish MP’s (members of the Conservative Opposition Party Konfederacja in Poland) represent the kind of loyalty, backbone, metal, and fight we expect to see in all elected officials and representatives. In this video, the Polish MP’s are standing in front of the Australian Embassy Building in Warsaw Poland expressing their concern over the rise of tyranny in Australia. These Polish MP’s are demanding that the Polish government immediately and harshly condemn the actions by Dan Andrews and other derelict Australian elected officials who are not doing nearly enough to return freedom to Australians.

    The words expressed are powerful and sobering (please refer to the subscript during the video) . We must carry hope that leaders like these continue to rise up, call out, and challenge the Australian situation for what it is – a brazen attack by clandestine authoritarians tasked with stripping away the freedom and heritage of Australian citizens in plain sight.
