Australian doctors get immediately suspended for Wrongthink, must publicly renounce unpermitted Association

Death by committee has a whole new meaning.

Australia's health practitioners

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency

Australians believe that their doctors are independent, because we have public and private medical systems and lots of “competition” between medical groups that appear to be run like businesses. What they don’t realize is that the bureaucrats entirely own the profession and it’s a monopoly from end to end. There is the illusion of freedom, but AHPRA suspends anyone who “holds the wrong views”. Once suspended a doctor is not permitted to practice, to write scripts, sometimes they are not even allowed to contact their patients.

AHPRA is not sacking doctors for bad patient outcomes, patient complaints, fraud or high risk medicine. For all the world it appears that the worst thing a doctor can do is suggest cheap solutions that get in the way of Medical Profits.

The government forcibly takes the money to fund Medicare from Australians but doesn’t let them have any choice about using those funds to talk to the doctor they prefer — only approved clone doctors. It’s communist medicine.

If there was a free market, Australians could opt out of Medicare and fund their own doctors.

The AHPRA Inquisition Against Australian Health Professionals

Caldron Pool

Who, or what, is AHPRA? Dr Jereth Kok was interviewed this week on the Caldron Pool show, and he explained that it is a “monstrous bureaucracy” in Canberra that rules over all Australian health professionals: doctors, dentists, nurses, physiotherapists, paramedics, osteopaths, pharmacists.

…AHPRA has become a Stasi-like enforcement arm of the Australian Government. It has devoted itself to purging every health practitioner in the country who dares to take a stance that is at odds with the decrees of the Covid bureaucracy.

Some examples are well known. Much adored Melbourne GP, Dr Mark Hobart, was purged by AHPRA in late 2021 for issuing exemptions to patients who were experiencing mental distress as a result of Victoria’s tyrannical mandatory vaccination regime. A few weeks later he was joined in forced exile by Dr Denes Borsos, who having lived through Eastern European Communism, has now been given a taste of Australian Communism.

The Covid Medical Network (CMN) are a group of senior doctors in Australia. They are having such an impact that even membership of the group is enough for immediate dismissal.

The most chilling part of the reasons given to Dr Brennan is this paragraph.

“It is not our role to evaluate the scientific validity of the letter. Our concern is that the letter strongly argued a highly polarised position, contrary to the public health order.”

In other words, the position argued by Dr Brennan and the CMN might be scientifically correct, and the position of the Australian Government scientifically incorrect. But as far as AHPRA is concerned, the crime lies in contradicting the Government’s position. The science is irrelevant.

Dr Paul Oosterhuis is one of the doctors suspended in Australia and he writes that the “bureaucrats are demanding” public renouncements of the forbidden groups “to the satisfaction” of the medical board — see the one below.  Doctors must not disagree with them in public. Read and weep. They have no freedom of association for doctors in Australia and no free speech.

 

Ahpra tell doctors what to think

It is understood that the Western Australian doctor in question was threatened with suspension, and allowed to retain her licence subject to the conditions listed on the AHPRA website. Not only is she gagged from speaking publicly about any medical topic and forced to toe the “party line” on Covid; she is expected to demonstrate her loyalty to the regime by formally denouncing the heretical organisation CMN. With wording that is to the “satisfaction” of AHPRA.

Hands up who thinks your GP will tell you what they really think?

      When Government controls Health Care, it ought be obvious that “Health Care” is a Political extension of those in power.

      It is self evident that Doctors fear loss of License to Practice, and more, from Political authorities.

      If anything, the recent Covid disaster is a testament to politically controlled “Health Care”, Censorship of opposing ideas, Jackbooted authoritarian treatment of Citizens, Officially sanctioned destruction of Education, Businesses, Private Lives, Doctors and Scientists.

      How does Anyone think that your Health is best served at the end of a Politician’s Leash?

          Jackboot medicine.

          If by telling them to take a hike, you are banned from places requiring the “n*zi-pass” to prove your submission to the inept medical Stasi class, so be it.

          But my line of thinking that it’s quite clear, the “vaccine” carries a substantial danger-to-life risk, so if the price of health is effectively being kicked out of society by a thug-like bureaucracy, then it’s a bigger concern people have rolled over to make tyranny go away.

          You can’t comply your way out of tyranny.

          And airlines in America are hiring backed previously sacked vaccine refusers ( could it be too many jabbed employers are nowtoo damaged to work?)

          https://www.reuters.com/business/aerospace-defense/united-airlines-let-unvaccinated-employees-return-jobs-march-28-memo-2022-03-10/

          “WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) – United Airlines said Thursday it will allow unvaccinated employees to return to their jobs starting March 28 and asked a federal appeals court to dismiss a legal challenge to the COVID-19 mandate as moot.

          “The Chicago-based U.S. carrier said in a memo about 2,200 employees had received vaccine-related reasonable accommodations after it had become the first major U.S. airline to mandate employee vaccines.

      A long career in medicine has taught me that the power of critical thought has never been valued, and that “flow chart” medicine is coercively encouraged. Since the introduction of Medicare by Labor, and more recently the addition of AHPRA, also a Labor initiative (Nicola Roxon), the ability to “shape” medical practice by bureaucratic behemoths has steadily led to a compliant medical workforce.
      Only the brave or foolhardy dare to stand out from the crowd. I am aware of very few doctors these days with a free thinking and open minded approach to medicine.

    The demonistion of Ivermectin and HCQ despite successful use in a number of not-so-rich countries told the tale, as did the inappropriate enforcement of masking, movement and experimental “vaccinations” with the real threat to the public of heavy fines. The use of police enforcers was shocking, revealing that what we suspected about politicians (a) being largely ignorant, and (b) having a power mentality, was true.

    Thanks David E and Jo,

    Wow that is stunning, I was surprised when my Dr. dismissed my query about Ivermectin last year and couldn’t be bothered to even spend time to discuss it, maybe there was more to it than I understood and this may be a big part of it.

        Because it takes 2 weeks to get an appointment with my regular GP I saw a young doctor about a simple medical procedure. I told him i was taking a chloroquine tablet weekly with zinc and daily vitamin D for coronavirus prophylaxis and would use a Ziverdo Kit if I contracted the virus. He had no idea what I was talking about and his reaction was to order a blood test with clinical note – Taking Chloroquine.

        The medical profession appear to be brainwashed into ignoring any possible treatment that could eliminate the virus!

    I was wondering what the outcome of that 52 page letter expressing serious concerns about the ” vaccines ” was going to be. It appears that suspension from being able to pracise medicine is the answer. The 52 page letter that the Doctors of the Covid Medical Network sent to the TGA, APHRA, the Government and various other hangers on pointed out serious shortcomings and concerns re the treatment of Covid 19.

    And the Governments answer to that letter…suspension apparently. Yes…welcome to Communist medicine. We will tell the Doctors what to think and say.

        At some stage soon a Royal Commission on the whole Covid disaster will have to be done.
        In the mean time I would love someone the issue the TGA, AHPRA and CMO’s with a FOIA requesting all contact between them and Big Pharma on the subject of Prophylaxis and Early Treatments with particular reference to Ivermectin, Vitamin D3, etc. etc.

        430

        • #

          Who would order a Royal Commission? Both Labor and Libs will lose big time. So will the mainstream media, and so will all the medical boards / TGA / etc. The problem is that so many institutions failed us and all of them will want to cover up their failure, not investigate it.

          So unless they can blame a scapegoat and absolve themselves, none of the groups above will want to push for a Royal Commission unless it is “to cover their a***”.

            Jo,

            the only way around that deep state reluctance to investigate, is to get a independent Judicial Review completed.

            There are so many lines of attack, not the least of which is the so called ‘informed consent forms’ and the related contempt they ‘triggered’ in the health bureaucracy and the health ministers office.

            If there are any independent legal minds left in the Judiciary, willing to take on the task, it would be a ground breaking and eye opening anti-narrative.

              Judicial review may help, but I would always prefer a trial in the court of public opinion. I don’t want to farm out decisions to any appointed select committees. But the court of public opinion has been largely controlled and sabotaged by those with the funds to afford the megaphones. Which townhall space is free of Big-Gov and Big-Pharma and Big-Banker censorship?

        They repeat: “to the satisfaction of the medical board” .

        It is for sure and certain that some of those medical board members are “well heeled”.

        It is equally sure and certain that some of those medical board members hold shares in “Big Pharma” companies.

        It is equally sure and certain that various medical “boards” have been acting to impact the market in favour of those companies.

        It”s time to demand that every medical board member table a record of his/her stockholdings and other interests which may bear on board rulings.

    As AHPRA is a government bureau hence staffed by “public servants” it will be difficult to discipline or sack those who’ve confused themselves with Stalin or Hitler (or Goebbels) and impossible with either of our current “leaders” and their parties.

    I heard yesterday from the father of severely myocarditis damaged women, that her unvaxxed Phamacist had refused to vaccinate children and as a result of being a NZ pharmacist was deported. When she arrived in NZ she was quarantined for 2 months and caught Ciovid in quaranteen. Susequently NZ cancelled her pharmacist licence and negated her qualifications. She can return to pharmacy if she re attends university to requalify and has the vaccination. She declined and is currently fruit picking and has plans for another career..

        Liberal Democrats have been renamed the Liberty and Democratic party because the Liberal Party complained to the Electoral Commission and said they had exclusive rights to the name Liberal.

        It does not matter which order you place the Freedom Friendly Minor Parties (PHON, L and D or UAP) so long as you place them 1,2 and 3.
        With our preferential voting system your vote will end up with whichever of the parties remains after the first two are eliminated.

        Also a vote for a minor party means that the major parties don’t get the money (that they voted for themselves) for each first preference vote, and the minor party gets a bit more funding.
        If either major was to get a million less votes the back office would force their leader out.

      I asked my doctor about vaccination for Covid & he must have decided I was SAFE to talk to. He said he could not recommend a course of action for me, BUT, he & his mother had the first shot, then stopped. His wife & kids are not vaccinated at all. At the same time he did recommend the annual flue injection.

      Later when I told him I had acquired Ivermectin from India he wanted the information of where, who from & how, so he could advise some other like minded patients, for whom he can not prescribe the stuff.

      At no point did he express an opinion no the subject directly, he didn’t really have to.

      If going down this route do be careful with your money. My card was hacked the first time. I established a separate isolated card for the second purchase from a different supplier. The bank advised they has stopped that account due to what they perceived as unauthorised activity on it.

    The government forcibly takes the money to fund Medicare from Australians but doesn’t let them have any choice about using those funds to talk to the doctor they prefer — only approved clone doctors. It’s communist medicine.

    Australians more or less demand “free” medical care. This is the price they pay, denial of access to possible covid treatments, even before the poorly effective covid vaccines were available.

    There is no such thing as a free lunch or interference-free medical practice under socialism.

    Similarly to how the mouse doesn’t understand why the cheese in the mousetrap is free, Australians, a vast majority of whom are profoundly ignorant of the affairs of the world, don’t understand the terrible price paid for socialised medicine.

    Before socialised medicine doctors always devoted a proportion of their time to treat patients for free who couldn’t afford their services. Medical care was not inaccessible to people who couldn’t afford private medical insurance (which was available at a reasonable cost before socialised medicine).

    Also, under a socialised and highly controlled medical regime, the Government in collaboration with medical groups decide on how many doctors and specialists are trained. This restricts supply and ensures prices for medical services are kept artifially high and waiting times, especially for specialists, kept long.

    In addition, if “The government” (i.e. the taxpayer) is paying for a treatment they will decide what treatments are acceptable. That will be determined by possibly corrupt processes and improper influence by interest groups such as Big Pharma and the useful idiots of the Left.

    This is SO sinister and EVIL it smacks of pure communism writ large.

    If the coalition had a clue about the upcoming election and are thinking they can squeeze in by a few votes and fall over the line – boy, are they delusional. (Excluding any voter FRAUD that is) 🙁

    Be VERY wary of who you vote for and research where their preferences go before you vote unless you want to live in a totalitarian society – but by the look of the above threatening letter I think we already do.

        O/T but speaking of The Greens I was discussing the coming State election with one I know (believes in AGW, in renewables and hydrogen, grows own vegetables, recycles, uses public transport to the City) and he was adamantly that he wouldn’t want the Green standing in his electorate to win. This surprised me, although from the times I had something to do with said Green candidate I wouldn’t ever vote for him either, but his objection to the Canidate was based on having ‘worked’ with him for some years. I can’t repeat his language here but it seemed he did the work while said candidate drank coffee or sat at his desk doing nothing useful.

    A minor annoyance of socialised medicine is also the renaming of nuclear magnetic resonance imaging machines to remove the word “nuclear” because that would terrify the masses. One couldn’t have the Sheeple exposed to some scary “nuclear” process in a big, scary, noisy machine that the dumbed-down masses had no clue as to how it worked.

    “Magnetic resonance” by itself is an essentially meaningless term. It must be associated with the absorption and then re-emission of RF energy from the evolving spin polarisation of nuclei in a powerful magnetic field.

    Just remember, every hierarchy of every ‘profession’ including politics, operates on the Peter Principle whilst also subjecting members to this sort of group think. At the top of two such hierarchies in Australia, Minister Greg Hunt commanded and set the Group think tone. 1) Climate and 2) Health. Hunt is a protege of Claus Schwab.

    I suspect a judicial review of Hunt’s specific decisions and the basis of same, is about the only way we’ll get to the bottom of it. Of course, he believes he’ll be long gone by then, safely embedded with the Darvos crowd hierarchy.

    If Vitamin D and zinc supplements, known to reduce the severity of covid in deficient people, were prescription drugs, I bet they would have been banned for COVID treatment as well.

    Frankly, I am surprised there wasn’t government warnings about the “dangers” of these, but that’s probably because no information about their usefulness was propagated in the popular media.

      “no information about their [Vitamin D and zinc supplements] usefulness was propagated in the popular media”.

      You are so right there. How can anyone not be appalled at the arrogant mushroom treatment given to the general public over the whole of the pandemic.

      If only the Health ministers had said, right from the start of the pandemic:” We the governments, and you the public, are in this together. Working together, we can get through it. We are setting up a national testing scheme, in which all suggestions from the medical profession and from the public will be assessed based on the single criterion of safety. They will then go into a database of possible courses for prevention or treatment, and you the public will each decide which ones you want to test. If you want to try a cat hairball treatment for example or a headlice remover, you can do so, provided it has been approved for safety. You will need to work with your doctor as they will need to record the treatment you are taking and the results. Your doctor can advise you, but as always the final decision is always yours. There will be a government website which will report all the treatments tested and all the results, and will give the government’s views on which courses appear to be working or not working, but the data will also be open to all interested organisations for analysis. We expect that we will all make mistakes along the way, but with goodwill and working together …….”

    I was reported by a DVA advocate that I had never met, who was working with one of my patients, for prescribing narcotics to that patient. The patient had been prescribed narcotics for 2 decades. I hade been the sole prescriber for 8 years.
    He was fired from his advocate role at the RSL due to numerous reports of abuse and extortion against DVA people he was working for including my patient and he even had my patient involuntarily assessed in the local mental health unit and when the patient was in there, tried to get them to sign over power of attorney for financial matters as my patient had a $250,000+ payout by DVA.
    2 years of investigation by AHPRA to give me 6 hours of face to face education and a listing against my name in my online AHPRA details for the 9 months it took them to validate that I had done the education at a cost of $4500 to do the education.
    Then AHPRA stuffed my registration last year and I could not work for 2 weeks as they had not updated my registration despite payments and submission of documents and information months in advance.

    EVERY doctor who has had anything to do with AHPRA or their state medical board despises them.

    Also go to the Medical board websites and dig through the people on the boards.

        Double check the practitioner details for the Australian Medical Board, only the central Australian doctor has less than 10 years on medical boards and even he is a medical director of services. They are all upper management bureaucrats/ academics.
        The Australia Board that you linked to lays out the rules and regulations, they are a benign entity that no regular doctor interacts with except a pointless monthly email updating us of what they are doing.

        It is the lower level state and territory boards that are the problem. They are the ones who institute cruel and unusual punishment for anything.
        they have to validate their position, so if you get to a state board meeting, you are stuffed and will be hit with punishment no matter what you have done.

        I currently have over 1400 patients that I have seen in the last year. I have been a nurse and doctor for 25 years. The complaint against me is still the only complaint ever lodged. The QLD board didn’t care.
        Another doctor in my town was investigated for 2 years and had restrictions for 6 months for telling a family that their relative (in palliative care) was going to die within the next week (the patient died 3 days later). They complained because ‘He did not tell us in a calming manner’…

    Yes, our establishment is shutting down anyone who dares speak out the truth. As I reported earlier, Tucker Carlson is under attack and people are seriously calling him to be arrested and charged with treason for speaking out the truth. I hate to say it but it’s going to get a lot worse because the establishment now smells blood, and governments either don’t give a damn or are colluding with those groups who are shutting down people.

    For those who don’t know, the establishment by definition is a term used to describe a dominant group or elite that controls a polity or an organisation. It may comprise a closed social group that selects its own members, or entrenched elite structures in specific institutions.

Generally keep it out the media. These days there would be no mention at all. We can give our life to efforts for change here and “They” the establishment, care as much as the PRC establishment does. Classic narcissistic trick, blame the victim – I hat the idea “Its YOUR fault because if you dont like some evil thing done by the government – Why dont YOU fix it, and its the fault of the electorate if the politicians are treasonous and corrupt”.

      One of my close and elderly relatives had a reaction to the Pfizer “vaccine”, and their GP offered to report it, or would leave it to my relative to do it. The GP did report it, and whoever they reported it to, followed up with my relative with a phone call to check on the condition, as did the GP. It was not a serious or permanent reaction, but enough to warrant a visit to a GP by someone who is not visiting doctors for fun.

      Me, I have avoided the “vaccine” so far, but if I want to travel internationally, I do not think I will be able to escape it. I’ve had numerous vaccines for many things, but these covid medical trials still ring some alarm bells.

    Over the course of these last two years, doctors and experts have described an unprecedented assault on free and open scientific discourse, with potentially deadly consequences.

    In this special episode of American Thought Leaders, we’re at Hillsdale College, which is hosting a conference on the censorship of science during this pandemic.

    We’ll be sitting down with three thought leaders that we’ve previously interviewed on our show, namely former Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Martin Kulldorff, Stanford University professor of medicine Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, and public health policy expert Dr. Scott Atlas. All three are fellows of Hillsdale College’s Academy for Science and Freedom.

      Science censoring science. Much like a snake eating itself. In fact much of what passes for science in the public arena, such as climate science and COVID-19 vaccine medicine can be symbolised by the ouroboros, an an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating its own tail.

    Covid and the Phenomenon of Mass Formation

    17th March 2022 – Wanda Skowronska

    Desmet looked at the times in both a psychological and historical perspective. He said he came to recognise that what was facing us was what psychologists term “mass formation”, that is, a phenomenon that affects groups, societies and even countries. This term arose out of the study of social psychology in the past century, where entire nations and groups of nations bought into a single narrative at the same time. For this process of mass formation to happen, Desmet said there had to be four conditions:

    ♦ Widespread social problems and social alienation. Depression was the primary disorder affecting the West—according to the World Health Organisation—and this was evident before Covid hit.

    ♦ A lack of meaning-making. With the loss of religious or culturally shared stories, people look elsewhere for meaning, or stay in a generally unhappy state when they have lost a sense of meaning.

    ♦ Arising from the previous two points, there is a free-floating anxiety, a sense of unease without any awareness of its cause. If you see a lion coming at you, you get a specific fear. But fear arising out of the sense of lack of meaning and social disconnectedness remains diffuse, unfocused, ever-present, without any specific representation. It is, Desmet says, an extremely distressing state, and sufferers look for something to connect their anxiety to.

    ♦ Free-floating frustration and discontent arising from the previous three points. There is widespread unease and nowhere to direct it.

    Suddenly, Desmet explains, a new narrative is given on all the media platforms of the world—we are told that a very dangerous virus can threaten our lives—and we are galvanised with fear. Suddenly the free-floating anxiety finds a clear representation of its fear, which it could not find before, in the alienated, angst-filled state of existence. There is also a global invitation to come together to fight it and this creates social bonds, gives meaning to daily life. There is a high level of connectedness, in the sense of fighting a heroic battle against the object of anxiety. New rituals arise—for rituals create a sense of unity. Desmet says that no matter how absurd the ritual, people are only too willing to participate in it to show how much they belong to a group.

      Just from my tiny mud puddle, my memory of the Great Pandemic, will have little or nothing to do with Covid 19.
      My experience so far, for this two years, is being a witness to mass hysteria.
      I know OF two that died WITH SARS, both over 85.
      I know folk that were allegedly positive, but no serious illness.
      My main experience is damage to personal relationships. (Not to mention the slow destruction of my business.)
      This divide can be observed simply by the masks on faces.
      It has a truly Medieval character.
      Like the doctors in the post, the biggest life changer is being branded a heretic.
      Years out, this will be viewed not as medical event, but a psychological one.

    I’m yet to see in NZ the widespread vax adverse events documented elsewhere and have no idea the situation in OZ but have been reading everything that turns up in anticipation of what might happen given a 4 month vax lag NZ vs NH.

    The most harrowing so far was this from Mar 6 in the US:

    ‘Adverse Reactions to COVID Vaccines I Have Come Across’
    A Midwestern Doctor
    https://amidwesterndoctor.substack.com/p/adverse-reactions-to-covid-vaccines?s=r

    The adverse events are broken into the following sections:

    Strokes, likely Strokes and Blood Clots
    Hemorrhages
    Heart Conditions
    Sudden Death (unknown cause)
    Anaphylaxis and Allergies
    Other Neurological Conditions
    Psychiatric
    Autoimmunity and Chronic Fatigue

      I’ve made through to Heart Conditions and working up the fortitude to carry on with Sudden Death e.g.

      Critical-(Close friend I have known for 4 years): I was at a restaurant getting lunch and we talked to the waiter there about the vaccine, he said he’s never getting it because his previously completely healthy friend (his age, so late 20’s or early 30’s) got the vaccine, put his kids to sleep, went to bed and then died.

      Compelling except doesn’t mean a lot unless the event is tied to a vax batch number because …. (random article):

      ‘100% of Covid-19 Vaccine Deaths were caused by just 5% of the batches produced according to official Government data’
      NOVEMBER 11, 2021 / BRIAN PECKFORD

      I’m beginning to think NZ got lucky with the Pfizer batches but a much smaller population to obtain anecdotes than US obviously – that’s if word gets around AHPRA-style suppression if there is any in NZ, haven’t heard of any yet.

      Richard, I know of some suspicious deaths, but suspect that our later roll out and lack of free-flowing covid meant that things weren’t as bad here. It may be that the worst outcomes occurred when people caught Covid just before or after being vaccinated. That would increase the dose of the spike protein. Covid itself damages the surface of capillaries and heightens the immune response. It — at least til Omicron turned up — caused clotting, strokes and heart attacks.

        I can partially vouch for that experience with my wife. She had her 3rd AZ on a Friday in early February. On the Thursday I noticed she had the spicy cough, but I didn’t say anything re COVID, but had my suspicions. Anyway, late Friday she was advised a close contact had COVID. On the Saturday she was bed ridden with terrible muscle soreness. On the Monday she RAT +ve, but I suspect she was infected a couple of days before the vaccination. Maybe AZ is worse than the mRNA vaxes. Something, of course, which the vax companies should have tested for.

        It may be that the worst outcomes occurred when people caught Covid just before or after being vaccinated.

        I think Robert Malone mentioned in his Joe Rogan interview that he was vaccinated in a period close to having had covid and that it exacerbated the effects on him.

          Since he release/discovery of the batch numbers, Malone had identified his (as I recall) 2nd injection as from a batch that had a high number of adverse effects.

        Mother in Law tested negative with PCR 3 days before Jab.
        Jabbed and then that afternoon called by a nurse at the aged care facility as the Lady was ‘Not herself’.
        Slurred speech, unsteady, unable to stand up and dead in a week.
        Cause of death on death certificate, metastatic ovarian cancer.
        The Doctor said everyone knows stroke is not a adverse effect associated with the vaccine.
        I call it a ‘worst outcome’ as we were enjoying her company and she had been spending time with her Grand Children and enjoying activities with her neighbours. So many healthy people have chosen to have the Jab in the hope that they would be free to resume a normal life, some with worse outcomes then death.

        Covid itself damages the surface of capillaries and heightens the immune response

        The only problem with that statement Jo is that plenty of people tested positive with Covid19 in 2020 and those who died were elderly and/or with signifcant other co-morbities. So maybe it does but it did not appear to have an effect on all cause mortality during that period.

        30

        • #

          Covid certainly did have an effect on all-cause mortality, not in Australia because we barely had any cases. But in the US the peaks of covid line up regionally with unusual peaks in excess deaths. It may not be obvious when spread across the whole continent because different areas had surges at different times. It’s also obvious in the EU and UK.

          Many people blur excess death data “over a whole year” or a whole continent. With better resolution data, probably the true covid death toll is about 15% higher than the tested official one.

      KP

      The trouble is none of those conditions are unique to the covid vaccines, so any of them is easily waved away by “it happens, definitely not the vaccine”…

      The trouble is, no-one in Govt, or in medical bureacracy, or in vaccine research has any incentive to find out if the vaccines cause illness, they are all bound to the mainstream propaganda. Without an incentive, nothing happens.. None of them could give a shit about us, the public.

      Anyway.. ooh! look over there, a distraction, WAR! The terrible Russians and Putin/Hitler.. join in and scream!! Paint yourself blue and yellow! Forget about covid…

    apparently AFL Solicitors of Sydney have sent a letter to AHPRA on 2nd March this year to cease and desist the suspension of practitioners. AHPRA according to AFL are under the misapprehension that they are not subject to various federal and state laws. It will be interesting to see how AHPRA will respond to the letter. AFL has stated that if the present suspension regime for wrong think continues, they will take action against AHPRA and the employees who initiated any action against health practitioners.

      Yes it is interesting that AHPRA appear to have no actual powers but are just a “lobby-group” who influence the official 15 Boards who do have the actual powers. So I guess they are a sort of fact-checker for these Boards who have outsourced their responsibilities to them. They do seem to have limited medical qualifications and are simply there to discover cases and highlight them to the appropriate medical Board. Hard to see a direct agency-government linkage. Wonder how they get access to the doctor or patient information – maybe as a “partner”. Do patients and doctors knowingly give that permission? Can you explicitly ask your doctor to not provide information to them (like Medicare)? Legal C&D may be successful. Sounds a bit like 3rd Party forcing?

    New Hampshire House Passes Bill Allowing Pharmacists to Dispense Ivermectin Without a Prescription

    By Debra Heine March 17, 2022

    New Hampshire may become the first state to allow the antiparasitic drug ivermectin to be obtained without a prescription. A Republican-sponsored ivermectin bill (HB 1022) passed in the N.H. State House Wednesday on a vote of 183-159 and has been sent to the State Senate for review.

    “Ivermectin is available over the counter in 79 countries,” State Representative Jim Kofalt, R-Hillsborough noted during a legislative hearing in January. “And it has a good safety profile.”

    Republicans argue that granting easy access to ivermectin will allow individuals to make medical choices that are prohibited by the medical establishment.

    “We still have patients who don’t know how to find the doctors who will write prescriptions for ivermectin,” said Rep. Leah Cushman, who is also a nurse. “It’s safer than having to go to the farm store.”

    On Monday, the Republican-led committee voted on several other bills related to the pandemic, including a bill barring the state from enforcing any federal vaccine mandate, which passed on partisan lines.

    The committee also rejected a Democrat bid to undo a law passed last year that enshrined medical freedom regarding vaccine mandates.

    N.H. lawmakers unanimously rejected a bill to add the COVID vaccine to the list required to attend public schools.

    The Portsmouth Herald made its disapproval of Ivermectin clear in its report on the bill’s passage, describing promoters of the potentially life-saving drug as “anti-vaccine activists,” and claiming that there is “no evidence to support” that it can treat the coronavirus.

    “During the pandemic, COVID-19 vaccine skeptics and anti-vaccine activists have latched onto ivermectin, though it has not been approved by the FDA as a treatment for COVID-19, nor is there evidence to support that it can treat the virus,” wrote Herald reporter Josh Rogers in the paper’s website Seacoastline.com.

    In truth, there have been numerous studies that show evidence of large reductions of mortality in COVID patients treated with ivermectin.

    This is a problem that the public at large must solve. Doctors cannot.
    The entirety of the medical boards in Australia must be expunged and new members appointed ONLY from the ranks of those Drs who spoke out publicly.
    The Boards must learn that they serve the public and not the Govt. And they must learn that lesson brutally and with finality.
    I know some the past members and believe you me, their character is NOT beyond reproach.

      Indeed, but I think the whole problem is that we as citizens have no choice. One government committee makes all our decisions, and THAT’S The real problem. Any committee with that much power needs to be accountable and it isn’t. The committee itself should be permanently disbanded, not just members replaced.

      In the end all powerful committees will be captured by the vested interests. Pfizer makes billions in profits, is that enough to pay / reward / coerce and capture a few committee members? They’d be crazy if they didn’t…

      If the media was reporting how dangerous these committees are, that might stop the capture. But the MSM media are part of the bureaucracy aren’t they?

    In effect, all through COVID, the best people to have assisted the general population regarding the disease were sidelined. Both from diagnosing/testing and to some extent even seeing sick patients. GP’s should have been in the front line of soothing peoples concerns, informing them. Particularly the greater part of the population without any decent science knowledge. But no, we had the ridiculous policy of ” go home if you are sick, go to hospital if you are really sick”. We had government spin doctors not actually medically qualified doctors forming COVID policy. It certainly looks like AHPRA had a big role in forcing that separation of patients from doctors.

    Hands up who think your GP will tell you what they really think

    Well, I wouldn’t even ask. But if I did they may tell me what they really think, which may not be much.

    In regards to covid I saw a GP who was establishment line and I judge he thoroughly believed it, but hadn’t thought about it that much, it was glossy brochure information that he offered. Then he said any questions so I just replied no, I read Jonova (just joking, I just said no).

    How Wokeism Could Become a Requirement to Be a Doctor

    Exclusive: Association of American Medical Colleges to Propose DEI Curriculum Standards

    In October 2021, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Medical Association jointly released its 54-page Advancing Health Equity: A Guide to Language, Narratives and Concepts, which received widespread criticism for its ideologically-charged language and recommendations. The guide suggested physicians update their language using “equity-focused alternatives,” trading terms such as “vulnerable” for “oppressed” and “disadvantaged” for “historically and intentionally excluded.”

    The AAMC now plans to release “diversity, equity, and inclusion competencies.” The National Association of Scholars has acquired the pre-publication version of these competencies (see below). Drawing from Advancing Health Equity, these competencies encode the watchwords of identity politics as official standards, for both students and medical professors. If medical schools adopt these competencies, they will establish social justice activism, along with a controversial set of political beliefs, as de facto professional requirements for students and faculty.

    Under development for more than a year, the competencies take the form of educational standards, different skill benchmarks for distinct stages of a physician’s education, designed to facilitate “curricular and professional development” and “formative performance assessment.” They come at an opportune moment, as medical schools around the country have promised extensive training and curricula in diversity, equity, inclusion, and “anti-racism.”

    Here is a selection of the competencies, which I have organized into categories.

    – Diversity and Intersectionality
    – Oppression and Disruption
    – Activism and Institutional Change

    While they might satisfy accreditors, these competencies will deal a blow to medical education. They will force students and physicians to embrace social justice activism, prompt schools to evaluate students and faculty based on their adherence to a controversial set of beliefs, and ensure the violation of academic freedom.

      Investigative Issues: Feds Funded Pro-Vaccine Media Blitz Left Undisclosed by Outlets

      By Chris Pandolfo, TheBlaze

      In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations. These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.

      Hundreds of news organizations were paid by the federal government to advertise for the vaccines as part of a “comprehensive media campaign,” according to documents TheBlaze obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services. The Biden administration purchased ads on TV, radio, in print, and on social media to build vaccine confidence, timing this effort with the increasing availability of the vaccines. The government also relied on earned media featuring “influencers” from “communities hit hard by COVID-19” and “experts” like White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and other academics to be interviewed and promote vaccination in the news.

      Though virtually all of these newsrooms produced stories covering the COVID-19 vaccines, the taxpayer dollars flowing to their companies were not disclosed to audiences in news reports, since common practice dictates that editorial teams operate independently of media advertising departments and news teams felt no need to make the disclosure, as some publications reached for comment explained.

      It’s already way past the point where doctors can be held account for not following their oath to save people’s lives and instead letting them to die, in some cases right before their very eyes in hospitals. I suppose though they can plead innocence by declaring “I was only following orders”. We heard that before after the second world war but that didn’t prevent some of them being hung or put in prison. Doctors allowing patients to die needlessly is premeditated murder in anyone’s language.

    I think there has been enough coverage online, if not in the MSM, to show that there was huge support for doctors who actually wanted to TREAT Covid, so I have little sympathy for those who now hide behind supposed threats to their positions. My own health centre has plenty of Audis and BMWs in the carpark – and it’s a bulk billing practice – so it’s clear to me that these lily-livered ‘saints’ put their comfortable lifestyles ahead of public health even when, to me at least, it wouldn’t have taken much to ignite a mass movement of resistance among doctors. Why didn’t they organise? They’re eager enough when the subject matter is the inadequacy of Medicare payments.

    Instead, they chose to pay their prestige car loans instead of honouring the supposedly sacred Hippocratic Oath. I won’t be calling health workers ‘heroes’ ever again.

    Statistical analysis of the past 12 months daily data shows a six day lag of daily vaxs after cases,ie people get advised of a positive PCR test and go off and get vaxed.
    Then daily hospital admissions follow four days after the daily vax. Then follows daily icu numbers seven days after vax, ie three days after hospital admission. Then follows daily Covid deaths eight days after daily vax.
    That seems to me to imply that both the virus and the vax are the cause of the Covid deaths, which is reasonable given that the disease is the spike protein damage throughout the body acquired from the virus or made in the body via the mRNA gene therapy.

      Bevan, I would be interested in sources, but count me skeptical that any doc would recommend a vax after catching covid. Since the vax takes two weeks to do much, it’s far too late. I would not be surprised if people rush off to get vaxxed after they hear a friend got Covid, but really don’t think many people would get a vax after a positive test themselves.

    Live Not By Lies

    On 12 February 1974, the great Russian writer, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was arrested, next day deported from the Soviet Union and exiled to Frankfurt, West Germany.

    On the day Solzhenitsyn was arrested, February, 12, 1974, he released the text of an essay, “Live Not by Lies.”

    Edward E. Ericson, Jr. and Daniel J. Mahoney, in “The Solzhenitsyn Reader” wrote:

    Solzhenitsyn equated “lies” with ideology, the illusion that human nature and society can be reshaped to predetermined specifications.

    And his last word before leaving his homeland urged Soviet citizens as individuals to refrain from cooperating with the regime’s lies.

    Even the most timid can take this least demanding step toward spiritual independence.

    If many march together on this path of passive resistance, the whole inhuman system will totter and collapse…”

    The full essay can be found here:
    https://alor.org/Storage/Library/PDF/Solzhenitsyn_I-Live_Not_By_Lies.pdf

    Very early on in the government mandated stabbing of citizens my wife was asked by her GP of 30 years about being vaxxed, to which my wife said she isn’t vaxxed. Her GP’s response was; ‘Oh, you do know you won’t be able to go anywhere?’ My wife was gobsmacked and asked ‘So what will the vaccine protect me against?’ Her GP since she was an early teen said ‘I can’t answer that’.
    Needless to say a massive amount of respect was lost that day and a hunt for a new GP began!
    Still unsure if she couldn’t or wouldn’t say, but she didn’t work for 6 months and has never been on that Practices list of doctors giving vaccines.
    I had my own debate with the controlling GP partner of that Practice which I’ve noted here before, I think!
    All of which goes to a massive loss of integrity for the professionals we were most expected to rely on in being honest and taking into account our individual health needs.
    The only way that can be repaired is for ALL medical professionals to distance themselves and call out the controlling bureaucracy within AHPRA and ATAGI and completely shun the woke cancel culture of the AMA!
