    I was amazed at the recent US figures for Wu Flu. Yes, 800,000 dead. But over 146,000,000 have had the virus! That’s over 40% of the population and Omicron is now rampant. That’s a 0.55% death rate. I can safely assume that everyone will have been infected by this time next year and then the US is open for business. Like the UK and Sweden at an enormous cost in human life, many of which could have been saved with invermectin. By ratio, Australia would have lost 75,000 people and a vast number of lives have been saved. Plus another 2,000 or more who did not die from the H1N1 flu which did not get started this winter.

    But with Omicron rampant and likely unstoppable and apparently both far more infectious and far less disastrous, we have weathered the two major storms and it is time for people to get their lives back from tyrannical State governments. Especially in Victoria. More likely than not, Daniel Andrews can declare himself legally as Dictator of Danstan at any time. And start locking people up without explanation. Perhaps in City hotels?

        This is very annoying Oldie. I was intending to cut across to MSN immediately after scanning the posts here, and have now had ny childish joy at seeing the newest antics of Kezza spoiled! Anyhow…

        That Kerry sheila is another classic “Karen” like the one who stuffed up in Qld, and that ultra nutter in South Oz “If the AFL football is kicked into the stands, do NOT touch it under any circumstances!”

        Ok, so the Cat People have had their day in the sun loading up on our dough. Jeannette Young in Qld has a husband who is / has been VERY CHUMMY with Pfizer. The stubbled bloke in Victoria is the brother-in-law of Bill Gates’ second best mate Jane Halton. Halton…

        She sits on Bill’s vaccine outfits GAVI and CEPI. She also sits on the National Covid19 Coordination Commission in Oz and recommends …..vaccines EXCLUSIVELY. Jane also sits on the board of Crown Resorts and recommends…..Hotel Quarantine in her hotels. Her B-i-L the CMO agrees with all this. Yeah, quite a little gang… Oh and Jane was also a big wheel at the WHO where Bill Gates (with GAVI, his other biz) is the biggest donor BY FAR. Yeah Vaccines all the way Santa! No conflicts of interest ANYWHERE here, eh what?

      Yes State Governments, Victoria by far the worst of them but WA and QLD are not far behind in restricting Australians and herding us like a mob of sheep.

      But those Union controlled Labor State Governments have been playing a very cunning blame game relying on the lack of knowledge too many Australians have about the responsibilities and powers, and sovereignty, of State Governments as compared to the Commonwealth or Federal Government. State Emergency Powers enforced by State Health, State Police and State Courts. And more.

      Unfortunately both Federal and State put up smokescreens and mirrors as it suits them to avoid criticism and therefore the average voter does not really understand where the blame should be directed.

      800,000 US Covid deaths.

      When you realise how many died “with” rather than “of” you could easily halve that number.

      If you would rather believe it to be accurate, remember that this figure is brought to you by the same folks who have “proof” that the seas are rising and will soon come to the boil.

    Our Australian health officials are so backward when compared to their counterparts in Japan. Although Japan is encouraging the use of the COVID-19 vaccines, it is not compulsory or mandatory, and in fact they are demanding that the vaccines be taken only on the consent of the person to be vaccinated after all information is provided, including the effectiveness and side effects. Their plea is:

    Please do not force anyone in your workplace or those who around you to be vaccinated, and do not discriminate against those who have not been vaccinated. The Japanese government even links to a “Human Rights Advice,” including instructions for handling any complaints if individuals face “vaccine” discrimination at work.

    It puts our politicians to shame.

      It seems to me that our Federal Health officials make much more sense than their State colleaagues and then the water is muddied by media medical presenters like Dr Swan at the ABC, a journalist first and foremost who qualified as a GP many years ago.

      Our Australian health officials are not so backward; they know exactly where the money is.

      We seem to have a direct link here that puts the Official Government – Health – Medical position without seeming to realise that its “The Medical Truth” as you will apply it if you want to remain registered and or employed. Just a coincidence that it’s from Victoria, but it seems that this approach is present in all states.

      COVID vaccines pose 7 times higher death risk than COVID for young people, Japanese experts warn

      Japan is adding heart inflammation warnings to COVID vaccine labels. Authorities there approved a plan to print a list of “serious side effects,” including myocarditis, on COVID-19 vaccine labels. The decision was made earlier this month by a panel of experts from the Japanese health ministry and will apply to labels of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The Japanese health ministry also requires hospitals to carry out a detailed and strict reporting of any adverse events within 28 days following vaccination.

      Concerns have been raised in Japan about the risks of myocarditis in young men following injection with the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, and experts there have warned that the vaccines pose a seven-times-higher risk of death than the virus itself for people in their 20s.

      Japan has also been more transparent about the content of the so-called vaccines than has been typical in other countries so far. Instructions on vaccination with Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna products published on the health ministry’s website include a warning that these products “contain an additive that has never been used in a vaccine before.”

      Meanwhile, reported cases of adverse events continue to rise dramatically, including in the U.S.

      Simple explanation for the difference between our Covid response and Japan’s:

      Japan still reveres its history, art and culture and would like to preserve it.

    *****
    “Creating a “National Pandemic Emergency” provided justification for such sweeping actions that override individual physician medical decision-making and patients’ rights. The CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated solely by the federal government under the auspices of the NIH. These “bounties” must paid back if not “earned” by making the COVID-19 diagnosis and following the COVID-19 protocol.

    The hospital payments include:

    * A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee to hospital.
    * Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
    * Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.
    * A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead of medicines such as Ivermectin.
    * Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
    * More money to the hospital if cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of COVID-19.
    * A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.

    CMS implemented “value-based” payment programs that track data such as how many workers at a healthcare facility receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Now we see why many hospitals implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They are paid more.”

    There will be at least 2 more variants to haunt us in 2022. The “omicron “ variant appears to have a flaw. It spreads really fast but is as weak as Albo. The CCP will have need to tweak it again until they get death rate up to match it’s capability to compete with wildfires.

    2022 Will certainly be as interesting as it will be deadly!

    The political leaders of the Western, likely former democracies or republics, seem unfazed by these protests.
    The captured Media pretends they aren’t happening.
    Gaslighting those of us that see them on alternative sources.
    Protestors are tracked and intimidated at their homes in some countries (Australia).
    They will have to be 50 times bigger than the BLM rio … I mean protests.

        Dennis. I’m currently in NSW and have been visiting a lot of shops / stores etc these past three days. Have travelled down from Qld and been visiting lotsa places near Sydney and Newcastle 9both supposed to have THOUSANDS of infections)

        Thus far I reckon about 40-50% of people are NOT wearing face masks in general, which kinda makes me suspect they do not believe the pandemic to be a big deal. Sure, it’s early days, and not scientific, but it really brings home how coerced the non-mask-wearers must have been, since….allegedly…..almost all of them are vaxed as well.

        No jab/ no job / no normal life… will do that, I suppose. Or do truly believe vaxed-numbers to be a realistic metric of “belief”?

      I was at the Nov 20 protest in Brisbane, with around 70 – 80 000 others. A huge number.

      Rhiannon Down, of the Australian, said “hundreds’ turned up.

      I simply cannot believe how a normal functioning human being could lie so clearly. But I have answered it there, she is not normal and not functioning properly. She is a propaganda shill and its odds on that she believes that misinformation is necessary to prevent vaxx hesitancy, and that fearless factual reporting is a thing of the past

      Such hesitancy in the face of the deaths, myocarditis and other permanent disabling occurring, when we are talking about a now virtually harmless virus, is completely rational. Its her and her colleagues in the MSM who are irrational and dangerous. At some stage this will all collapse and based on past situations those who had been so enthusiastically lying and supporting the regime may find things a tad difficult….

      Exactly – and how absurd it is to worry about hospital ICUs being overwhelmed when “quarantine camps” are built and not hospitals.

      Also, how absurd it is to speak of “overwhelmed” hospitals when the authorities are quite happy to dismiss 25% of their dedicated workforce for being “anti-vaxxers”.

      They deliberately run down the hospitals and then say, “sorry, the hospitals can’t cope so we are forced to lock you down again.

      Not to mention the outright banning of many possible treatments, most cheap and proven safe, even if only marginally effective.

    The police and legacy media massively and deliberately underestimate the numbers at these protests.

    In a recent one in Vicdanistan the police and legacy media estimated “only” 10,000 but I calculated about 100,000 based upon the width of the roads and length of the march and an estimate of one person per square meter.

    If you want to do your own estimates and compare them with “official” figures, then there are various ways to do it. Google “how to estimate crowd numbers”.

          The people who rock up do a head count and they are far more reliable than the Establishment Misleadia.

          I have attended three of the Sydney rallies. Each time citizen protesters are launching multiple drones. The purpose is to get crowd size footage up on the net.

          I must admit this tactic has been successful. It has defeated the Establishment Misleadia’s attempts to make the participants in the largest global protest movement in modern history feel small and insignificant. Also interesting is the lack of police response to unlicensed drones being flown over crowds and used to buzz the public order and special operations black shirts in their hiding places.

          Some of these machines are high end. Top of the line Parrot and DJI models capable of position holding in 60Km/h gusts. And I’ve seen some of the custom yagi antennas. They’ve got custom FPV uplink and downlink. Jamming 2.4 Ghz won’t work on these machines.

          Now, the police had 2 choppers up over the Sydney 12/12/21 rally. It was their airspace with NOTAMs issued. But still they didn’t try to enter the crowd to arrest illegal drone operators? They’d upped their numbers from the 600 police on 20/11/21. Problem: too many Grandmas and not enough pepper spray.

          Melbourne crowds are bigger than Sydney, but both are dwarfed by what is happening in Europe. New Zealand is the latest to join. But you won’t know how big that was if you still trust the Establishment Misleadia.

          You may snear and cling to the Establishment Misleadia lies. You may, like the police, hope this gets back to managable levels, where they can return to bashing and pepper spraying Grannies. The drones and their customization and the crowd protection of their operators tell me something. Something I have also learnt from having to allow hundresds of “selfies” with my unique 3D sign “Spike” each rally. This is not a crowd of sheeple, following leaders who can be bought or sidelined. This is 100,000s of individuals who have never protested before, providing support for like minded individuals with the tech to do what they wished they could do.

          They know now their size, and the skills within their fellows. This is a people’s movement of the scientifically literate. You can’t kill it by cutting of one head. Globally, millions of people have declared “This is the hill!”. Millions more will join when they are told that endless boosters are required to keep their passports green.

          Millions of people who were never part of a protest crowd, but were trying it as a last peaceful resort. Millions of people who have the skills to act without a “leader”, secret basement meetings or joining poorly encrypted Telegram chat channels.

          For the politicians and bureaucrats of the quackzine passports countries, surrender is the only viable option. The “back off till they cool off, then restart incremental encroachment” game is not going to work.

          There will be other hills, because freedom isn’t free. But right now, this is the hill. MP, it’s sounding like you might be still a’bed on Saint Crispin’s day …

            Konrad, If you looked at pretty much any comment from PeterS for the last 12 months, you will see were I am coming from.
            Peter likes to belittle others for doing nothing while doing less than nothing himself. He has stated he will not be attending any rallies as he does not want to upset the establishment, he will comply with any “directive” the government asks. He believes we can continue to comply our way out of what we have complied our way into. He believes we will vote out the tyrants by voting in a different flavour of tyrant.
            I have no tolerance for he’s kind.
            My point was at least the MSM turn up, he won’t. MSM are at least showing that these things are happening, no such thing as bad advertising.

            As for me, I have been to all rallies from the get go, do astandinthepark every Sunday, I have stood out front of every council chamber in every electorate in my area.
            I do all freedom rallies, hold the line rallies. I have not missed one.
            The first rally I attended we had 50 people, the last 7000. I have never protested in my life, but I will see this through to its conclusion.

    It is interesting that Blogs like this one are not trolled by supporters of Daniel Andrews. He has endless full time media managers who report on Twitter and Facebook and posts. It is a full on publicly funded Andrews reelection machine. As was his illegal election. It made Biden look honest. And even today according to Someyurek, he basks in the reports of his media managers.

    I can only conclude that informed blogs are just ignored as yesterday and not reaching his impressionable younger voters. So he couldn’t care less. And while this virus has not touched the young and only devastated their grandparents generation, they feel invulnerable and think he has done a great job. After all, that’s what they are told. And they cannot imagine real tyranny.

    What is suprising is that Andrews is so confident that he has shut manufacturing that he could afford to put 250,000 builders offside and their voting families. Basic Labor is now running on a youth and public servants and educators and medical platform. And quite happy to shut down farming and manufacture and even construction. And his supporters are so Woke, they have no idea.

      And we in Victoria even had an absolutely disastrous but permitted BLM march in the middle of the pandemic, despite the fact that Australia has never had slavery which was outlawed in all British countries in the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 and it was policed on the High Seas by the world’s most powerful navy. After the march many Victorians in high rise public housing were confined to their rooms and food was delivered to prisoners,as in Wuhan. It’s hard to thank the criminal Daniel Andrews enough.

      The new extreme left totalitarians including Andrews push racism and slavery and kill National pride by simultaneously banning marches, such as Anzac Day. With the demise of newspapers, many young people get their information solely on social media. It certainly saves thinking and reading. European history is near forbidden in Australian Universities and Australian history is nonsense when an Englishman can be paid $400,000 a year as an aboriginal Professor at Melbourne University, despite not being aboriginal. You would think this was Stalin’s Russia. Even Classic middle of the road liberal conservaties have being forced out of positions of power.

      So today we read that Morrinson is going to establish a ‘Voice’ for aborigines, a way to distinguish and reward racism being presented as anti racism and anti Imperialism. In fact it is pure racism. Everyone’s different. And some need cash for being different. And simultaneously Trans rights have become the biggest single threat to women’s rights as men dressed as women demand women’s rights even to exclusive women’s sports. Soon women will have no rights because no one is different to anyone else. And men menstruate.

      Today we in Victoria are informed that the utterly woke National Energy Council is planning to get rid of coal completely. Ten years earlier. AGL and others are closing all coal power stations by 2032 and we will run on hydrogen and gas, neither of which we have. Especially after Andrews bans on fracking and gas exploration.

      So here we are sitting on some of the world’s largest reserves of brown coal and natural gas and shale and we are not allowed us them. By the United Nations. To save the planet, somehow yet unexplained from a problem which is not real.

      A march to return sanity is in order. But I can guarantee Daniel Andrews does not care. He only cares about reelection and absolute power. Demonstrate all you like. No one in parliament is listening. Even the coalition has gone woke to please the ignorant Twitterati who cannot read anything longer than 280 characters. They have an 8 second attention span. And Andrews is the nastiest Twit in Australia.

    Travel restrictions end and cases abound.
    Who’d have seen that coming.
    Well..any REAL expert on the planet, like Geert Vanden Bossche or Dr Robert Malone or Dr Peter McCullough all of who warned this very thing would happen and it has.
    Predictably governments around the world claim to not know how this could happen.
    “We don’t understand” seems to be their standard response.
    Roll on 2022 when things really get bad, the mass vaxxed finally wake up and the NWO and the sycophant politicians get what they deserve.
    Unfortunately there will be a price to pay for all this.
    Have your protest rallies but your “elected public servants” don’t care, and we all know what’s coming and indeed has to for this to end.
    History repeats with precision as always.

    The Pfizer/Biontech vaccine plays havoc with your immune responses rather than just inducing anti-body production

    The induction of tolerance towards stimulation with TLR7/8 (R848) or TLR4 (LPS) ligands by BNT162b2 vaccination may indicate a more balanced inflammatory reaction during infection with SARS-CoV-2, and one could speculate whether such effect may be thus useful to regulate the potential over-inflammation in COVID-19, one of the main causes of death (Tang et al., 2020). On the other hand, inhibition of innate immune responses may diminish anti-viral responses. Type I interferons also play a central role in the pathogenesis and response against viral infections, including COVID-19 (Hadjadj et al., 2020). With this in mind, we also assessed the production of IFN-α by immune cells of the volunteers after vaccination. Although the concentrations of IFN-α were below the detection limit of the assay for most of the stimuli, we observed a significant reduction in the production if IFN-α secreted after stimulation with poly I:C and R848 after the administration of the second dose of the vaccine (Figure 1H, 1I). This may hamper the initial innate immune response against the virus, as defects in TLR7 have been shown to result in and increased susceptibility to COVID-19 in young males (Van Der Made et al., 2020). These results collectively demonstrate that the effects of the BNT162b2 vaccine go beyond the adaptive immune system and can also modulate innate immune responses.

    https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.05.03.21256520v1.full

    Nice article by Dr Jessica Rose laying out how the immune systems is supposed to work and how the vaccines actions disrupt things

    these authors have now provided evidence to support that these COVID-19 injectable products are modulating innate responses and that this isn’t limited to problems with COVID-19. Problems with fungi, other viruses and bacteria can be anticipated. VAERS has hundreds of thousands of reports of adverse events related to fungal infections, plagues of herpes zoster occurrences (shingles) indicating weakened immunity, cancers coming out of remission, and the list goes on.

      Analitik. Back in March I first watched the Sucharit Bakhdi video explaining what mRNA injections do wrong, and he’s been 100% correct all the way….”Blood Clots and Beyond”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyPjAfNNA-U.

      The really prescient moments are from about 35 mins to the end at 43 mins, when he tells us straight that there WILL BE 3rd and 4th and further shots due to “mutations” and that (not laughing) “I’m not saying not to take the vaccine but you better make your will before you do”

      He was right.

      I sure you hope you gave her all the important information like how many adults have died from the vaccine and how many healthy children have died from Covid. It sure would be irresponsible not to tell her she has far greater chance of being harmed from the vaccine than from the disease at her age.

        The danger to an 11 year old from the the jabs, is almost certainly far greater than the danger of Covid-19 of what ever variant.

      Simon, you cannot be serious?!

      What would an 11 year old child understand about original antigenic sin or the risk of mass using a non-sterilizing inoculation in the middle of a pandemic involving a novel virus with wide evolutionary latitude.

      Children are not at significant risk from this virus. Nor do they appear to be a significant transmission vector.

      No appropriate testing has been done for that age group. And the effects of this gene therapy are irreversible.

      This is not her decision, it is clearly yours, and you should reconsider it.

    I hope the Queensland government have kicked a massive own goal over the latest mask mandate in response to the latest outbreak. Masks are required in shops etc but not in Pubs, Clubs Cafes and live music venues because everyone there is “vaccinated”. How are they going to blame the “unvaccinated” when there is an outbreak in a pub, club, cafe or live music venue where I am currently banned from. As the double jab wanes this will happen more often.

    I will stay away from “vaccinated” people as they will be the super spreaders. It will be entertaining how they try to spin it this time.

    AFLW Crows player Deni Varnhagen challenges SA’s COVID vaccine mandate in court

    Varnhagen and two other applicants, childcare worker Kylie Dudson and teacher Craig Bowyer, said they had not received COVID vaccines while another applicant, nurse Courtney Millington, has received one dose.

    The group’s lawyer Loretta Polson said they were asking the Supreme Court to find the mandates were invalid.

    Good on her – I hope she not only gets her AFLW contract restored but also her nursing position along with the other SA nurses who were sacked after refusing to get shot, and that the other applicants get their positions restored as well.

    The REAL reason they want to vaxx kids, and it’s so simple.

    Don’t be confused by the bit about ‘building a healthier and more prosperous future.’ That’s just window dressing. This is all about data collection and has nothing to do with health.

    The real purpose behind the historic, unprecedented push to vaccinate the very young, even against diseases like COVID that do not pose a threat to them, is to fold the current generation of children into the blossoming global digital identity system.

    https://www.blacklistednews.com/article/81408/digital-surveillance–the-real-motive-behind-push-to-vaccinate.html

    You know, it just occured to me how protests mirror vaccinations.
    You have one expecting it to yield the results you desire but it fails.
    So you have another..and another..
    For each iteration you actually move further from your objective and ability to achieve it.
