“To compare Covid to the Second World War, as the 24 leaders have done, and argue that it needs a post-WW2 style settlement, surely redefines the word ‘hyperbolic.’ ”

The Great Covid Power Grab (Clark)

Johnson, Macron and Merkel have warned that the world needs a settlement to protect itself in the wake of Coronavirus. The question, as ever, must be: ‘who benefits?’ The answer, as ever, is ‘it’s unlikely to be you.’ “Out with nationalism and isolationism and in with international ‘Health and Security’!” That’s the cry from 24 world leaders, led by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The call for a new global ‘pandemic preparedness’ treaty came in a letter to the Daily Telegraph and in papers across the world. The letter uses words and phrases such as ‘solidarity,’ ‘global community,’ ’international cooperation’ and ‘protect’ repeatedly, to make us all feel that what is being proposed is for the good of us all. But is it?

If we read between the lines, we can see quite clearly that, while the plan is supposed to be about post-Covid pandemics, it is really about making sure that the draconian measures introduced since 2020 are maintained as long as possible. The ‘nobody is safe until everyone is safe’ mantra which appears at the end of the second paragraph in the letter, is saying to us – as Merkel and other globalists have strongly hinted – that restrictions cannot and will not be lifted until everyone in the world has been vaccinated. If you have any doubts, just take a look at the very next sentence, which states: ‘We are therefore committed to ensuring universal and equitable access to safe, efficacious and affordable vaccines, medicines and diagnostics for this and future pandemics.’ Translation: ‘Africa, you’re going to take the vaccines we offer you whether you like it or not.’

To justify a ‘pandemic treaty,’ and other long-planned changes being implemented in its wake, they have to accord Covid a very special status. The first sentence of the letter boldly states: ‘The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest challenge to the global community since the 1940s.’ But is that really true? Hong Kong flu claimed the lives of between one and four million people between 1968 and 1970. But it got a lot less coverage than Covid. There was no talk of a permanent ‘New Normal’ being established in 1970, or the need for a post-WW2-like settlement. Neither was there when HIV/AIDS hit in the 1980s. The UN says between 24.8m and 42.2 million people had died of AIDS-related illnesses by the end of 2019.

To compare Covid to the Second World War, as the 24 leaders have done, and argue that it needs a post-WW2 style settlement, surely redefines the word ‘hyperbolic.’ A reminder: some 75 million people died in the Second World War – including around 27 million citizens of the former Soviet Union. 60 million Europeans became refugees. By contrast, the current number of deaths ‘with’ Covid is 2.8 million. Yes, that’s serious –and all deaths are very sad– but the numbers alone can’t explain why it’s Covid –and not other diseases which killed many more and came before it– which necessitates a ‘Great Reset’.

Kentucky Passes A Philosophical Exemption Law For Vaccines (ky.gov)

AN ACT relating to exceptions to mandatory immunization requirements and declaring an emergency.


Amend KRS 214.036 to provide exemptions from mandatory immunization for any child, emancipated minor, or adult who, personally or by a parent or guardian, submits a written sworn statement objecting to the immunization based on conscientiously held beliefs; prohibit any administrative regulation, administrative order, or executive order from requiring during an epidemic the immunization of persons who submit either a written sworn statement objecting to the immunization based on conscientiously held beliefs or the written opinion of the person’s physician that such immunization would be injurious to the person’s health; require the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to develop and make available on its Web site a standardized form relating to the exemptions from mandatory immunization and to accept the form after it is submitted; amend KRS 209.552 and 214.034 to conform; EMERGENCY.

Covid Passport Trials Begin With Live Comedy Night (BBC)

The government is to trial a series of measures in England, including Covid passports, to allow the safe return of sports matches, events and nightclubs. Passes would show if a person had been vaccinated, had a recent negative test, or natural immunity. Trial events in the coming months will also explore how ventilation and testing before and after could help crowds return. Any use of passes would be “time-limited”, the sports minister has said. The pilots, which will include the FA Cup final, will last until mid-May, and some of the listed events will not be trialling vaccination certification, including those taking place in Liverpool.


Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston described the trials as a “learning experience”, saying no decisions had yet been made on processes or vaccination certificates. He said the earlier pilots “almost certainly won’t involve any element of certification”, and that the government would also be looking at mitigations such as one-way systems and hygiene measures. Mr Huddleston said the PM would receive a report on the trials at the end of May, and suggested further events could be added later in the year.

Everyone in England to be Offered Twice-weekly Covid Tests (G.)

Boris Johnson is to unveil a plan for routine, universal Covid-19 tests as a means to ease England out of lockdown, as the government faced a renewed backlash over the idea of app-based “passports” to permit people entry into crowded places and events. Six months after Johnson unveiled plans for “Operation Moonshot”, a £100bn mass testing scheme that never delivered on its stated aim of preventing another lockdown, all people in England will be offered two Covid tests a week from Friday. The prime minister is to announce the rollout of the lateral flow tests at a press conference on Monday afternoon, at which he will also outline a programme of trial events for mass gatherings, as well as proposals for potentially restarting foreign travel.

The testing scheme, involving kits for use at home or at test centres, workplaces and schools, is billed as a means to limit any continued community transmission of the virus, in parallel with the vaccination programme, and as a way to track outbreaks of potentially vaccine-resistant Covid variants. The test-and-trace phone app will also be updated so that when pubs and other hospitality venues reopen everyone in a group will have to register, not just the lead person, with those who test positive asked to share other places they have visited. Some scientists have expressed scepticism at the plan, noting both the possibility of false negatives with lateral flow tests, and the need for better support for people to self-isolate if they do test positive.

Civil liberties groups and many MPs will also be wary if the new testing system potentially feeds into a regime of Covid certificates, which would use recent tests, vaccination or the presence of antibodies to the virus to determine entry to pubs or mass events. Sometimes also called “Covid passports”, these would be purely for domestic use, and would be distinct from a vaccination record to allow foreign travel.

There’s a research deficiency about vitamin D deficiency. “This supports arguments for designing clinical trials”?

High Vitamin D Levels May Protect Against Covid-19 (UCM)

A new research study at the University of Chicago Medicine has found that when it comes to COVID-19, having vitamin D levels above those traditionally considered sufficient may lower the risk of infection, especially for Black people. The study, published in JAMA Open Network on March 19, retrospectively examined the relationship between vitamin D levels and likelihood of testing positive for COVID-19. While levels of 30 ng/ml or more are usually considered sufficient, the authors found that Black individuals who had levels of 30 to 40 ng/ml had a 2.64 times higher risk of testing positive for COVID-19 than people with levels of 40 ng/ml or greater. Statistically significant associations of vitamin D levels with COVID-19 risk were not found in white people.

The study looked at data from more than 3,000 patients at UChicago Medicine who had had their vitamin D levels tested within 14 days before a COVID-19 test. The research team is now recruiting participants for two separate clinical trials testing the efficacy of vitamin D supplements for preventing COVID-19. This research is an expansion of an earlier study showing that a vitamin D deficiency (less than 20 ng/ml) may raise the risk of testing positive for COVID-19. In the current study, those results were further supported, finding that individuals with a vitamin D deficiency had a 7.2% chance of testing positive for the virus. A separate study recently found that more than 80% of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 were vitamin D deficient.

“These new results tell us that having vitamin D levels above those normally considered sufficient is associated with decreased risk of testing positive for COVID-19, at least in Black individuals,” said David Meltzer, MD, PhD, Chief of Hospital Medicine at UChicago Medicine and lead author of the study. “This supports arguments for designing clinical trials that can test whether or not vitamin D may be a viable intervention to lower the risk of the disease, especially in persons of color.” Meltzer was inspired to investigate this topic after seeing an article in early 2020 that found people with vitamin D deficiency who were randomly assigned to receive vitamin D supplementation had much lower rates of viral respiratory infections compared to those who did not receive supplementation. He decided to examine data being collected at UChicago Medicine on COVID-19 to determine the role that vitamin D levels might be playing.

“There’s a lot of literature on vitamin D. Most of it has been focused on bone health, which is where the current standards for sufficient vitamin D levels come from,” Meltzer explained. “But there’s also some evidence that vitamin D might improve immune function and decrease inflammation. So far, the data has been relatively inconclusive. Based on these results, we think that earlier studies may have given doses that were too low to have much of an effect on the immune system, even if they were sufficient for bone health. It may be that different levels of vitamin D are adequate for different functions.”

“..not the more expansive spending Biden envisions to create jobs, fight climate change and stand up to a rising China..”

Republicans Dangle ‘Easy’ Win For Trimmed Biden Plan (F24)

Republicans opened the door Sunday to supporting a pared down version of Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, saying concentrating on physical improvements would deliver an “easy bipartisan win” for the US president. Biden’s American Jobs Plan — the second massive spending initiative of his 10-week old administration, after a $1.9 trillion short-term Covid rescue bill — would modernize America’s public works and make its energy system greener. But the proposal announced last week faces major hurdles in Congress amid criticism from Republicans and business lobbies who oppose the higher corporate taxes that would pay the bill.

Roy Blunt, the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, implored Democrats to focus on the traditional pillars of infrastructure — “roads, bridges, ports and airports” — and not the more expansive spending Biden envisions to create jobs, fight climate change and stand up to a rising China. Blunt spoke out as senior administration figures hit the Sunday talk show circuit to sell the policy to the American people as a vital component of sustained job growth. “I’ve reached out to the White House a couple of times now and said, you’ve got an easy bipartisan win here if you’ll keep this package nearly focused on infrastructure,” Blunt told ABC’s “This Week.”

That would not prevent the administration from later pushing through the other aspects of its plan on a partisan basis, he said. Blunt complained that the package contained more for electric vehicle charging stations than for physical improvements. “When people think about infrastructure, they’re thinking about roads, bridges, ports and airports,” he told ABC. Blunt, a senior member of Senate leadership team, struck a more conciliatory tone than the chamber’s Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who had earlier vowed to fight the Biden plan “every step of the way.”

It’s become fully abstract.

US National Debt Passes $28 Trillion, +$4.7 Trillion in 13 Months (WS)

It finally happened, that glorious moment, when, after teetering on the verge for weeks – for reasons we’ll get into shortly – the incredibly spiking US gross national debt, after kissing the line a couple of times for a moment, finally, and suddenly by a big leap, jumped over the $28-trillion mark, with a $143-billion leap in one day on Wednesday, March 31, following some big Treasury sales. It gave some of that up on Thursday as some bonds matured. And it now amounts to $28.08 trillion, as per US Treasury Department on Friday. The US gross national debt has now spiked by $4.7 trillion in 13 months since the end of February 2020, in the days before this show started.

The flat spots in the chart are the visual depictions of a charade unique to American politics, the periods when the debt bounced into the Debt Ceiling. Those were the days when everyone in Congress was still trying to hijack the Debt Ceiling law to get their favorite spending priorities! If it looks like the trillions have been whizzing by a little less fast in recent months, that the growth of the debt has somehow slowed, that is correct. The chart below magnifies the daily debt levels since December. On March 3, the debt level touched $28 trillion but only barely and just for one day, before backing off, and then kissed it again on March 17, only to back off again and remain tantalizingly close, but no cigar, until Wednesday, when it did the deed with one huge $148-billion leap:

The reason for this slowdown in borrowing is that the government sold a gigantic amount of debt last spring, adding $3 trillion to its debt in a few months, and then didn’t spend all of it, but kept the unspent amounts in its checking account – the General Treasury Account or GTA — which ballooned to $1.8 trillion by July, from the pre-crisis range between $100 billion and $400 billion. During the final months of the Mnuchin Treasury, it was decided to start spending down the balance in the checking account by borrowing a little less, and by early January, the GTA had dropped to $1.6 trillion.

Erdogan wants to dig a new canal and bypass the 1936 Montreux Convention.

Turkey and the Suez ‘Heart Attack’ (K.)

Turkey continues to threaten to depart from the 1936 Montreux Convention that governs free shipping through the Bosporus strait. The accident in the Suez Canal served as the excuse for the speaker of Turkey’s Grand National Assembly, Mustafa Sentop, to imply as much last week, even if he had to go back on his statement due to the tense situation between Ankara and Washington. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also proclaims this departure when he wants to utilize it geopolitically and when talking about his announced pharaonic intention of constructing a second canal in the Bosporus – one unregulated by international conventions. Could Turkey close the strait and block the passage of both merchant and military ships between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, depending on what serves its interests?

According to the Montreux Convention, merchant ships enjoy freedom of passage and navigation in the strait, irrespective of their flag and cargo. The convention allows Turkey to militarize the strait and permits the Black Sea countries freedom of passage for military ships provided they give a week’s notice, and substantially restricts the passage of military vessels that are not from the Black Sea states (notification of crossing, tonnage restrictions, armament restrictions, aircraft carriers cannot pass, and others). All of this in a time of peace, which, however, is threatened by Erdogan’s controversial views on the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as the atmosphere in the Black Sea, reminiscent of the Cold War, where Ukraine is the epicenter of looming dark clouds and, according to analysts, will likely remain a source of global tension.

The Suez “heart attack” brought up questions on safe passage into and out of the Mediterranean, as much for the merchant fleets as the navies that move between the Red Sea, Gibraltar and the Bosporus, with the latter crossing attracting the attention of military and commercial organizations around the globe, given the volatile geopolitical situation in the wider region. Turkey, if it deems necessary, does not need to bar the gate to stop traffic in the Bosporus and the Dardanelles. All it has to do is conjure up an accident by scuppering two ships in the straits, without being accused of violating the Montreux Convention. That is why the West is feverishly readying the “continental straits” between Alexandroupoli and Burgas as an alternative, while NATO equips the fleets of Romania and Bulgaria.

And he really wants to. These guys sent an open letter warning about the Montreux Convention and he just has them arrested.

Ten Retired Admirals Detained in Turkey as Erdogan Warns of New Coup (GR)

Turkey detained 10 retired admirals on Monday, as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned of a new coup following a letter signed by more than 100 retired admirals warning about a possible threat to a treaty governing the use of Turkey’s key waterways. The Ankara chief public prosecutor’s office said arrest warrants have been issued for the 10. Prosecutors also ordered four other suspects to report to Ankara police within three days, opting not to detain them because of their age. The development comes a day after the letter was sharply condemned by the government, which said the move is “reminiscent of coup times” in Turkey’s past. Turkey’s approval last month of plans to develop a shipping canal in Istanbul comparable to the Panama or Suez canals has opened up debate about the 1936 Montreux Convention.


The admirals said in their letter that apart from its environmental impact, the new canal venture could undermine the Montreux accord. The convention guarantees the free passage through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits of civilian vessels in times of both peace and war. It also regulates the use of the strait by military vessels from non-Black Sea states. The new canal would allow ships to transit between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea without passing through part of the straits that are covered by the treaty. The declaration has drawn strong reactions from the government and officials. Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalın said the statement is “reminiscent of coup periods” and made the former soldiers “a laughingstock.” “Know your place and stay where you are,” he added.

Hunter Biden Is ‘100% Certain’ DOJ Probe Will Clear Him Of Wrongdoing (JTN)

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has expressed complete confidence that he will be cleared at the conclusion of the Justice Department’s probe into his finances. During a CBS Sunday Morning interview, Hunter Biden said that he is fully cooperating with the investigation. He said that he is “100% certain that at the end of the investigation, that I will be cleared of any wrongdoing.” “I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” he said in a statement back in December. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.” Fox News reported that “according to a source familiar with the matter,” the probe started in 2018.

    Finally some good news – “Covaxin is a whole virion inactivated vaccine based on multi-antigens (including spike and nucleocapsid)”

    Pennsylvania-based Ocugen selected to market India’s Covaxin in US

    Still in the early stages (Phase 1 and 2; 3 qbout to start) , but my initial feeling is that there will be many of these more ‘traditional’ vaccines in the pipeline.
    The adjuvant would probably then become the issue of concern.

    Only if one really, really, really has to get the jab then this will hopefully me a better option than the gene-based toxins currently being used.

    The UK mass twice-weekly testing program and passports were planned way back.
    And we are expected to believe that this is just being thought out and implemented now?

    Look at this article in the BMJ from SEPTEMBER 2020 –

    “The plan then states that there would be “full rollout” in early 2021 to 10 million tests a day, to “enable people to return to and maintain normal life.” At this stage, weekly testing would be made available progressively to the whole population to allow people to go to high risk events by using a “digital passport” to show they have tested negative for the virus.”

    Vaccine safety and possible side effects
    Allergic reactions
    There’s a small chance of a serious allergic reaction to a vaccine, called anaphylaxis. It usually happens shortly after a person receives the vaccine and is treatable.

    Your health care provider will ask you to stay at the clinic for at least 15 minutes after vaccination. This is so they can watch for abnormal or very rare reactions (like anaphylaxis) and treat them quickly. Vaccination sites should have a supply of epinephrine to use in case you have an allergic reaction.

    Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis may include:

    itchy rash
    swelling of the:
    lips
    face
    airway
    tongue
    increased heart rate
    loss of consciousness
    sudden low blood pressure
    abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea
    sneezing, coughing and difficulty breathing
    If you experience any of these symptoms after you’ve left a vaccination site, report it to your health care provider.

    I did not find the reports claiming 2,530 Injuries and 24 DEAD in Canada.

    Who is lying?
    Omission
    exaggeration

    Up to and including March 26, 2021, a total of 26 reports identified deaths that occurred after the administration of a vaccine. Following medical case review, it has been determined that 14 of these deaths are not linked to a COVID-19 vaccine and the other 12 are still under investigation. When the investigation is complete, the number will be updated accordingly.
    Among the 384 serious reports, the most frequently reported adverse event was anaphylaxis. (60)
    The majority of these adverse events are non-serious.
    Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to something you’re allergic to, such as peanuts or bee stings.

    Germ: “Not a single person I know who has taken the ‘shot’ has been informed of Antibody Dependent Enhancement.”

    In the UK, this is the typical NHS consent form for the Covid vaccines:

    1. I confirm I have received and read the COVID-19 vaccine information leaflet. (tick)
    2. I confirm I understand the risks and benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine being offered. (tick)
    3. I understand that I must rebook and attend for the second dose of the vaccine as scheduled. (tick)
    4. I consent to receiving the 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. (tick)
    Signature, Date

    https://www.lhch.nhs.uk/media/7730/pfizer-consent-form-v10.pdf

    However, the “vaccine information leaflet” does a poor job of explaining the risks and benefits.

    4. Possible side effects
    Like all vaccines, COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

    Most side effects are mild or moderate and go away within a few days of appearing. If side effects such as pain and/or fever are troublesome, they can be treated by medicines for pain and fever such as paracetamol.

    Side effects may occur with following frequencies:

    Very common: may affect more than 1 in 10 people
    pain at injection site
    tiredness
    headache
    muscle pain
    chills
    joint pain
    fever

    Common: may affect up to 1 in 10 people
    injection site swelling
    redness at injection site
    nausea

    Uncommon: may affect up to 1 in 100 people
    enlarged lymph nodes
    feeling unwell

    Rare side effects: may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people
    temporary one sided facial drooping

    Not known (cannot be estimated from the available data)
    severe allergic reaction

    Some people have reported a sudden feeling of cold with shivering/shaking accompanied by a rise in temperature, possibly with sweating, headache (including migraine-like headaches), nausea, muscle aches and feeling unwell, starting within a day of having the vaccine and usually lasting for a day or two.

    If your fever is high and lasts longer than three days, or you have other persistent symptoms, this might not be due to side effects of the vaccine and you should seek appropriate medical advice according to your symptoms.

    Reporting of side effects
    If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. This includes any possible side effects not listed in this leaflet. If you are concerned about an adverse event, it should be reported on a Yellow card.

    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/regulatory-approval-of-pfizer-biontech-vaccine-for-covid-19/information-for-uk-recipients-on-pfizerbiontech-covid-19-vaccine

    In the US, vaccine recipients must be provided with a “Fact Sheet”.

    “the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that vaccine recipients or their caregivers are provided with certain vaccine-specific EUA information to help make an informed decision about vaccination. This is accomplished by providing a an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers.”
    https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/eua/index.html

    These “Fact Sheets” in the US don’t downplay the potential side effects as much as the UK’s “information leaflets”.

    The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is an unapproved vaccine that may prevent
    COVID-19. There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19.

    WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE?
    Side effects that have been reported with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
    include:
    • injection site pain
    • tiredness
    • headache
    • muscle pain
    • chills
    • joint pain
    • fever
    • injection site swelling
    • injection site redness
    • nausea
    • feeling unwell
    • swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy)
    • non-severe allergic reactions such as rash, itching, hives, or swelling of the face
    • severe allergic reactions

    These may not be all the possible side effects of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19
    Vaccine. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19
    Vaccine is still being studied in clinical trials.

    I speculate that 99.99% of the people who are provided with the Fact Sheets (or information leaflets) have already decided to go ahead with the vaccination. “Informed consent” seems like a joke, especially when the information provided is so lacking, as in the UK.

    Hunter Biden: “I smoked crack for years but didn’t break any laws.”

    There’s literally no insanity you can’t say and be considered credible, defensible, laudible, even.

    China: “We gave $1 Billion dollars to a known, active crackhead but it wasn’t a bribe.”

    See? All good here. I just said so, and whatever I think in my mind is true now.

    Well, to be fair, you can’t very well have liability claims for something that’s never been tested. That would be crazy.

    Cop On A Horse Tramples Topless Woman In Brussels

    I see dead people and angry sheeple. I see populist demagogues being hatched from alien resentment spores even as the pips squeak. I see both the military and the post-modernly modernized constabulary chiefs learning the hard way why it is not wise to select for the impoverished and disenfranchised of average-or-less intelligence and proven willingness to submit to perceived authority… because perceptions of authority change and loyalties follow among minion ranks.

    Amazon warehouses are also breeding solidarity groups who will feel entitled by resentment. Fear and pain makes us greedy and bold. Birds of a feather flock together. I wonder if uber drivers will form a de facto urban assault vehicle Panzer division (that at least able to blow apart that flimsy metaphor).

    I wonder what we’ll do when real deadly publically communicable diseases inevitably emerge, most likely sooner than not. (Consider that most natural or unnatural disasters are spawning grounds for such. Consider that we are experincing in some ways more significant migration now than before covid even with travel restrictions. Migration is a form of disruption. Disruptions also increase prospectes for pathogenic invasion of a populace.)

    And, for all that the homeless are objects for our compassionate sorrow, they also earn some envy: their immune systems have encountered it all. If they can adequately nourish, they will prove a hardy bunch. Hmmm… (sci-fi nonsense alert) I wonder if we can suck out homeless plasma and inject ourselves with its antibodies? Or at least make money off a Netflix about the concept?

    I see helicopters. A gradual increase in helicopters, and a substantial increase in drone sales overlapping considerably with gun sales. Even the industry thinks so:

    Drone Market

    Gun Sales

    The overlap I mentioned is my own speculation.

    ON CNN, this bird explains frankly that mandating vax passports for all is the way to force ppl to get vaccined; there has to be a carrot for ppl to get the vaccine! You can get the freedoms! Otherwise ppl will take these freedoms anyways! She says.

    https://bit.ly/3dB9ZHR (short – CNN)

    Ha Ha 🙂 The interviewer doesn’t cut her off.

    The VAX passports are problematic. Legally, dodgy. “Private venues” can within some margins triage their clients (no blue jeans / need to be a member / nobody under 18 / other ..) but non-discriminatory laws also exist.

    For W Gvmts. to set up a 2-class system is of course not impossible (provided we accept they are the top legislators and efficient enforcers) but backlash might be horrendous, so they hesitate. This state of affairs creates a lot of fiddling about at the margins. Part of that is also due to the fact that they don’t know what they are doing, beyond alliances to ‘mates’ (thinking GB here) who have ‘interests’ – it is all ‘complicated’ – there are many criss-cross influences, e.g free, unregulated market and ‘biz’ vs. control of ppl for forced profits vs becoming top of the heap..etc.

    For ex. Bojo ditched the VAXPASS (as I will now call it) for pubs, see previous thread. To instore the distinction between vax and non-vax in these public venues would take new laws, which would have to passed by Parliament. Which can’t be done for the moment, the Tories are against (afaik) as they understand that popular rebellion might be provoked.

    As for Britain the wannabe Orwellian penal colony:

    Fines dropped against women who drove five miles for walk and tea ‘picnic’

    “After gaining considerable media attention over the weekend, Derbyshire Police’s Chief Constable Rachel Swann said today the two fines ‘have been withdrawn and we have notified the women directly, apologising for any concern caused’.”

    Backlash. They put on a big scary shitshow and get spanked for it. I wonder what kind of riots are brewing in Brussels right now? Someone has footage of that event and it’s on the internet, right?

    I am trying to buy some Ivermectin from Kachhela Medex, a source recommended by several on the list. They do not seem to take Paypal though, my preferred method for this kind of thing. Anybody know a source over there that takes Paypal? Otherwise, I did download and fill out the application for a money transfer Kachela lists called Revolut. But I am always wary of these apps, which require a decent amount of personal info, including a photo. They also share my info with other financial companies, and continue to do so even after/if I terminate. Sheesh.

    Absolute: Send a wire directly from your bank to theirs. It increases the cost considerably, but you are still getting protection for a fraction of the cost if you filled a script (at least in the US).

    Absolute:

    I posted a note yesterday that their PayPal had been suspended as they are suspected to be selling medicines.

    I am in the same boat as you. I can’t seem to find a way to pay them in USD.

    They don’t seem to want to be paid in local Indian currency. My td bank will only let me pay in local Indian currency provided that the seller fills out a Indian gov form within 24 hours! All seems designed to prevent such transactions.

    Look at the long co-dependency in culture and media between British ‘intelligence’ and Soviet spying over the Cold War decades.

    The British secretly had a crush all along on the Soviet’s total surveillance state of it’s citizens.

    The historic UK long term obsession with the secret agent wet dream fetish of absolute control over it’s population was not realized until Covid finally gave the British spook junta it’s longed for BDSM nirvana dominance over it’s Sheeple.

    Michael Reid:

    400 gallons is a big water tank! Is the tank inside your house 2nd story or up in a water tower? I assume you use it for everything except maybe drinking water? Is this just a winter setup only?

    What river are you on?

    We use St. Lawrence River water in the cottage but bring jugs of drinking water from home or in the past from city of Brockville before covid shut down their water park site.

    A neighbor has a well but there is simply too much iron in the water so nobody likes the taste. The neighbor has gotten so fed up with the iron ruining their waterworks/toliet/taps etc. that they have now switched back to soft river water. They use a special filter from a separate tap for their drinking water.

    The lack of drinking water bothers most people but we grew up bring drinking water in jugs so it is just part of cottage life and we think nothing of it.
