How many millions in future tourist income has Australia lost so far in this case? A land of petty vengeful wankers. Where the people suffer from Mass Stockholm Syndrome.

‘Djokovic has won the battle, but might still lose the war!’ Australian immigration minister could use a separate power to personally cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa which could have serious knock-on impacts on the tennis star. He would be banned from the country for 3 years. But then the international tennis federation could bar them from organizing the Australia open for those 3 years.

Novak Djokovic Wins Appeal Against Decision To Cancel His Australian Visa (G.)

Novak Djokovic will be immediately released from immigration detention in Australia, after the federal circuit court ordered a decision to cancel his visa be quashed. But the Australian government’s counsel, Christopher Tran, has revealed the immigration minister will consider exercising a personal power to cancel Djokovic’s visa meaning he is not guaranteed to stay and compete in the Australian Open. The decision now under consideration to cancel Djokovic’s visa anew would result in him being excluded from Australia for three years – significantly upping the stakes in a bizarre border stoush that threatens Djokovic’s quest to win the most grand slam singles titles of all time.

After a lengthy adjournment on Monday the judge Anthony Kelly read a consent minute agreed between the world No 1 male tennis player and the home affairs minister, Karen Andrews. Djokovic, after being temporarily released from immigration detention earlier on Monday to attend the remote hearing, was present off-screen as Kelly ordered the visa cancellation decision be quashed and costs awarded in his favour. After the decision is quashed, Djokovic must be released from detention within 30 minutes with his passport and personal effects be returned to him. Kelly said it was “unreasonable” for Australian Border Force officials to interview Djokovic on Thursday morning and cancel his visa in circumstances where they had agreed to give him until 8.30am to speak to officials and respond to the proposed visa cancellation.


Tran informed the court that another minister of the Australian government – the immigration minister, Alex Hawke – would consider exercising a personal power to cancel Djokovic’s visa. Kelly praised his candour. He questioned if such a power was exercised whether Djokovic would be removed from Australia and unable to return for three years, which Tran confirmed. “The stakes have now risen rather than receded,” the judge said. “I cannot purport to encroach on the valid exercise of a minister of executive power.”

99.9987% of Under-20s Survive Covid– And 97.1% of the Elderly Do As Well (DS)

Early last year renowned epidemiologist Professor John Ioannidis published an analysis of seroprevalence (antibody) studies from 2020 which concluded the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 – the proportion of those infected who die – was around 0.15% globally. It varied significantly by region, up to 0.3%-0.4% in Europe and the Americas and down to 0.05% in Africa and Asia. Prof. Ioannidis has now published an update, using 2021 seroprevalence studies to find a more recent IFR for the conditions prevailing in the second year of the pandemic. The new study has a special focus on the IFR in the elderly, but also includes estimates for all age groups, though not a new overall estimate. From analysis of 25 seroprevalence surveys across 14 countries, Prof. Ioannidis and his colleague found the IFR varied from 0.0013% in the under-20s to 0.65% in those in their 60s.


For those above 70 not in a care home it was 2.9%, rising to 4.9% for all over-70s. This means that even for the elderly, more than 95% of those infected survive, 97.1% when considering those not in a care home. For younger people the mortality risk is orders of magnitude less, with 99.9987% of under-20s surviving a bout of the virus. The authors note that if you allow for antibody waning of 5% per month in the elderly then the IFR reduces to 2.4% for non-care home residents and 4% for all elderly. They add that IFR varies between countries, and this variation correlates with the proportion of the elderly who are over 85, suggesting much of the difference may be accounted for by the age of the population. The authors conclude that the IFR of COVID-19 has reduced substantially from previously reported figures. They suggest some reasons for this, including better treatments and the vaccine programmes:

“The share of nursing home deaths decreased markedly over time in most high-income countries with some exceptions (e.g. Australia). This change may be reflected in a much lower IFR among the elderly and the entire population after the first wave. Improved treatments (e.g. dexamethasone) and less use of harmful treatments (e.g. [high dose] hydroxychloroquine, improper mechanical ventilation) may also have decreased IFR substantially in late 2020 and in 2021. Other investigators have estimated in 2020 a global IFR of only 0.11% in the absence of effects of new variants and vaccinations. Vaccines that are more effective in protecting against death rather than infection are also expected to have decreased the IFR in 2021. New variants becoming dominant in 2021 may also be associated with further lower IFR…”


The study’s findings confirm that Covid is a mild disease in all but a small minority of cases. With Omicron now reducing the severity several-fold further, even the proponents of lockdown should be able to accept that this virus is well below a level where restrictions are justifiable.

“Perhaps fire the modellers and keep the NHS staff. Most will already have immunity.”

100,000 NHS Staff Face The Sack If Mandatory Covid Vaccines Enforced (Exp.)

The cross-party alert comes after troops were drafted into hospitals with thousands of employees on sick leave through Covid or stress. Trade union bosses urged Health Secretary Sajid Javid to delay making Covid jabs mandatory by the end of March “with immediate effect”. They fear the exodus it triggers will worsen the staffing crisis, which includes 93,000 unfilled vacancies. And the Government and NHS trusts are facing a two-pronged legal challenge over the policy, by the Together Declaration campaign and Workers of England Union. The Government says that vaccinations are “our best defence” against Covid, preventing infection and saving lives”. But concerned ministers have held private talks with Tory MPs from the Covid Recovery Group about delaying or ditching the plan.

Sir Graham Brady, who chairs the 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers, said: “The experience of forcing care home workers to be vaccinated was tens of thousands left their jobs, piling extra pressure on NHS beds. “We are about to repeat this folly by forcing NHS staff out of their jobs too. It’s time we took a more rational approach now we know that vaccines don’t stop transmission of Covid. A negative test provides much more reassurance.” In October, Mr Javid brushed off pleas from professionals to “pause” the requirement for care staff to be fully jabbed, saying those who “can’t be bothered” should “get out and get another job”. Around 11,000 left in the two months before the deadline.

Mr Javid was confronted at Kings College Hospital, in south London, on Friday by consultant anaesthetist Steve James. He has had Covid but does not want the vaccine, and is therefore facing dismissal. Mr James told him “the science isn’t strong enough” to justify a compulsory jab. He quoted research showing the vaccine suppressed Covid transmission of the Delta variant for only eight weeks and “is probably less” for Omicron. A senior NHS official at a London trust said: “There are serious ethical questions about forcing people to have medical interventions against their will but the public needs to understand the practical implications too. “We are looking at more than 100,000 people being sacked and some calculations have it at above 200,000.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay.”

Advisers Urge Biden To Change COVID-19 Strategy (SAC)

Six public health advisers who advised President Biden during his presidential transition published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one aimed at learning how to live with the virus. “The authors are all big names in American medicine; several, including Dr. Luciana Borio, a former acting chief scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. David Michaels, a former head of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, have held high-ranking government positions,” The New York Times reported. “The driving force behind the articles is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an oncologist, medical ethicist and University of Pennsylvania professor who advised former President Barack Obama.”

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” the outlet added. The call for a new strategy comes after the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases despite Biden’s promise to “shut down the virus” during his 2020 presidential campaign.

“To be better prepared for inevitable outbreaks, they suggest that the administration lay out goals and specific benchmarks, including what number of hospitalizations and deaths from respiratory viruses, including the coronavirus, that should trigger emergency measures,” The New York Times added. “The authors say the administration needs to acknowledge that Omicron may not mark the end of the pandemic — and to plan for a future that they concede is unknowable. They also make clear that the current rate of Covid hospitalizations and deaths is unacceptably high.”

“There is one official report of an Israeli dying from Omicron. However, according to The Times of Israel, it is unclear that Omicron caused the death of the individual..”

We are still at zero confirmed deaths… From Omicron, that is. Not from the vaccines.

4th COVID Booster Shot Could Cause ‘Immune System Fatigue (CHD)

COVID-19 booster shots could do more harm than good, according to scientists interviewed late last month by The New York Times. The scientists warned “that too many shots might actually harm the body’s ability to fight COVID” and “might cause a sort of immune system fatigue.” On Monday, Israeli authorities began offering anyone over age 60 a chance to get a fourth shot, or second booster of the COVID vaccine. But scientists told The Times, before Israel confirmed it would offer the fourth shot, the science is not yet settled on using an additional booster shot to combat the new Omicron variant. There is one official report of an Israeli dying from Omicron. However, according to The Times of Israel, it is unclear that Omicron caused the death of the individual — a man in his 60s hospitalized weeks earlier from a pre-existing condition.

A new report from the UK Health Security Agency showed booster doses are less effective against Omicron than previous variants, and their effectiveness wears off in only 10 weeks. Professor Hagai Levine, an epidemiologist and chairman of Israel’s Association of Public Health Physicians, told The New York Times there’s no published scientific evidence a fourth shot is needed to prevent severe illness from Omicron. “Before giving a fourth shot, it is preferable to wait for the science,” Levine said. Benny Muchawsky, an architect based in Israel, told The Times the push to administer boosters for the Omicron variant “seemed like hysteria.” “Israel is the laboratory for the coronavirus vaccine,” Muchawsky said.

Dr. Robert Malone echoed during an interview with Joe Rogan: “These days the country’s name is actually ‘Pfizreal.’ It’s no longer Israel. Their government has a financial deal with Pfizer and they only have the Pfizer vaccine.” Malone told Rogan the scientific data points to booster doses doing more harm than good. Citing data from Denmark, he told Rogan there seems to be “negative efficacy in correlation with increased doses” meaning the more doses or boosters an individual receives, the higher chance they’ll be infected.

Pierre Kory’s ongoing battle with pharmacists.

Saturday Night Fight.. At The Pharmacy (Kory)

I am exhausted.. physically and emotionally and morally. Although I am not sure moral exhaustion is “a thing,” the daily witnessing of masses of physicians and pharmacists abandoning their core responsibility of placing the welfare of the patient as their primary consideration.. is beyond wearying. As my friend and COVID expert Dr. Hector Carvallo has long ago said, “it’s time for the lawyers.” It is becoming increasingly critical that the law profession aid the medical profession as it has long ago been led astray by captured federal pharmaceutical agencies. Note that I no longer call them “federal health agencies” as all their actions have been 100% consistent with what a pharmaceutical or vaccine manufacturer would want them to do. To prove that point, I simply ask that, when you read an announcement in corporate media that reports a new decision or action by the federal pharmaceutical agencies (FPA’s for short), simply ask yourself “is that what a pharmaceutical company would do?”

Perfect example of this exercise was 2 days ago when it was announced that the “FPA” had authorized boosters for 12-17 year old’s against omicron (a generally mild cold in kids), using a vaccine designed for older, fundamentally different variants that have already spectacularly failed at giving protection against omicron given ever-increasing data of “negative efficacy” (i.e. vaccinated people are getting omicron more frequently than the unvaccinated). Yet the FPA “doubles down” with yet another “non-scientific policy” so that Pharma can increase the total market size of those eligible for a vaccine… and who cares if this decision ends up sending more kids to hospital than the disease ever would. Another brutal assault on public health. Another day in the United States of Pharma.

In the United States of Pharma, the individual docs and pharmacists have been led so far astray, forgivably or unforgivably, due to the relentless barrage of dis-information targeted at them by the FPA’s (supplemented by synchronous Pharma influence over the media and medical journals). The resulting proportion of the two professions that have failed to display even a modicum of either critical thinking or moral conviction.. is terrifying. It is also causing lots of problems for patients and physicians (a colleague of mine now differentiates “doctors” from “physicians”, reserving the latter term for those who follow our guiding principles and ethics by always, always, putting the patient’s welfare as their primary goal above all else, even at personal sacrifice).

All about vaccines that we know don’t help against Omicron.

New Zealand Not Prepared For Omicron Outbreak Expected In ‘Matter Of Weeks’ (G.)

Two of New Zealand’s most prominent Covid-19 experts have warned that the country is unprepared to prevent the health system from being overloaded by an Omicron outbreak, with likely fatal consequences. Otago University’s Dr Nick Wilson and Dr Michael Baker also said it was only a “matter of weeks” before the highly transmissible variant seeped into the community due to border failures. Wilson said that despite New Zealand’s high vaccination rates, the number of adults who had received a booster dose of the vaccine – essential for minimising the effects of Omicron – remains dangerously low, and noted that the vaccine rollout for children between five and 11 still had not begun.

New Zealand received its first shipment of Pfizer’s paediatric vaccine only at the weekend, and intends to begin child vaccinations from 17 January, despite some comparable countries beginning their child vaccine rollout late last year. Omicron’s short incubation period also means New Zealand’s system for identifying and containing new community cases would be much less effective. Wilson panned the country’s traffic light system – which replaced the more stringent alert-level system last year – as “not fit for purpose” with Omicron due to its tolerance for relatively significant social interaction for vaccinated people when Covid is in the community. Baker agreed, calling for the government to rapidly reinstate an amended version of the alert level system.

“The traffic light system won’t help us very much because it was never designed to dampen down transmission, it was only designed to nudge people towards vaccination,” Baker said. Until these weaknesses were fixed, he said, “we need to hugely turn down the tap of people arriving in New Zealand”. Wilson agreed: “The priority is to have a tighter border so that we don’t have to vaccinate kids and conduct a booster program during an outbreak.” The pair called for a “significant tightening” of the number of New Zealanders entering the country.

UK Government Urges All Pregnant Women To Get Immediate Covid Jab (G.)

The UK government is warning that almost all pregnant women admitted to hospital with Covid symptoms were unvaccinated in one analysis over several months last year, as it kicks off an advertising campaign encouraging expectant mothers to get boosted. The campaign is calling on pregnant women not to wait to get either their first, second or booster jab. It will highlight the risks of Covid-19 to mothers and babies, with testimonies of pregnant women who have had the vaccine to be broadcast on radio and social media. The government says it has been clear, along with medical experts and institutions, that Covid-19 vaccines are safe for pregnant women and have no impact on fertility.

The Department of Health and Social Care cited statistics from the UK Obstetric Surveillance System which showed 96.3% of pregnant women admitted to hospital with Covid-19 symptoms between May and October were unvaccinated, a third of whom required respiratory support. About 20% of women admitted to hospital with the virus need to be delivered pre-term to help them recover, and 20% of their babies need care in the neonatal unit, the Department of Health and Social Care said. Since April 2021, about 84,000 pregnant women have received one dose and more than 80,000 have received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, the department said.

Dr Jen Jardine, from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, who is seven months pregnant and has had her Covid-19 booster jab, said: “Both as a doctor and pregnant mother myself, we can now be very confident that the Covid-19 vaccinations provide the best possible protection for you and your unborn child against this virus. “I would strongly call on all pregnant women like me, if you haven’t had the vaccine yet, to either speak to your GP or midwife if you still have questions and then book right away today.”

#BareShelvesBiden Trends On Twitter As Americans Deal With Empty Shelves (PM)

The hashtag “BareShelvesBiden” has taken off on Twitter, with Americans nationwide documenting an alarming number of empty shelves in their local grocery stores. It was #6 on Twitter’s trending list at the time of publishing. #BareShelvesBiden became a leading Twitter trend on Sunday evening as social media users across the country took aim at President Joe Biden and his administration for failing to address the ongoing supply chain crisis. A large number of photographs posted using the alliterative hashtag show bare shelves in produce, meat, and dairy areas of stores, and paper goods isles that resemble the mass buying of toilet paper at the beginning of the pandemic.


Throughout the hashtag, Twitter users posted videos and photographs of their local supermarkets across numerous grocery chains. While it’s currently unclear what exactly has caused these widespread shortages in stores across the country, some Twitter users have blamed the Biden administration and a supply chain crisis that hasn’t been solved for the shortages. The shortages appear to have touched a large portion of the country, with Twitter users from California, Maryland, Minnesota, and more states sending in their experiences with the popularized hashtag. Shelves remained unstocked and in a dire state as retail outlets continue to struggle with the shortage of goods, exacerbated by the pandemic and the Biden administration’s continued struggle to remedy the situation.

“Sundance” with a closer look.

Temporary Empty Shelves are Not a Supply Chain Crisis (CTH)

All of these #BidensEmptyShelves assumptions, which are being heightened by increased attention and social media, are leading to confusion. An empty retail shelf or case for a 24, 36 to 48-hour period is not, I repeat, NOT, part of a systemic supply chain disruption. Those are mostly location and regional specific out of stock situations caused by localized events, weather and employee shortages. What CTH has been describing for the past several months is NOT what is noted above. What we have been describing is a long-term supply chain crisis that will slowly unfold over a period of about a week or two, and then remain a problem over time, for a period of 6+ months. The thirteen bullet points below are the issues we will first notice as the general food supply chain begins to show signs of that type of vulnerability. This outline explains why it is happening and how long it can be expected.

Initial food instability signs in the supply chain. Things to look for:

(1) A shortage of processed potatoes (frozen specifically).

And/Or a shortage of the ancillary products that are derivates of, or normally include, potatoes.

(2) A larger than usual footprint of turkey in the supermarket (last line of protein).

(3) A noticeable increase in the price of citrus products.

(4) A sparse distribution of foodstuffs that rely on flavorings.

(5) The absence of non-seasonal products.

(6) Little to no price difference on the organic comparable (diff supply chain)

(7) Unusual country of origin for fresh product type.

(8) Absence of large container products

(9) Shortage of any ordinary but specific grain derivative item (ex. wheat crackers)

(10) Big brand shortage.

(11) Shortage of wet pet foods

(12) Shortage of complex blended products with multiple ingredients (soups etc)

(13) A consistent shortage of milk products and/or ancillaries.

These notes above are all precursors that show significant stress in the supply chain. Once these issues are consistently visible, we are going to descend into food instability very quickly, sector by sector, category by category.

    If 1 in 10 Fully-Vaxxed Don’t Take Boosters, Will Unconstitutional Mandates Eventually Fall?

    If 1 in 10 fully vaccinated people in Canada–of which there are 29,524,726 people–fail to take the succession of boosters now slated for them, Canada’s 81% uptake of all eligible 5+ citizens will drop precipitously to about 50% by shot #6 (not including vaccinations slated for 0-4-year-olds.)”

    If 1 in 10 Fully-Vaxxed Don’t Take Boosters, Will Unconstitutional Mandates Eventually Fall?

    Note: I, for one, know more than a dozen folks, who are fully vaxxed – currently – but are claiming will not be getting the next jab. Period. Mind you, … those who still fight my position regarding vaccination, outnumber this dozen by factor of about three (3).

    Russia Observer finally weighs on on Putin/covid:

    A THOUGHT. I have long been puzzled why Putin has evidently fallen for the COVID hoax (yes, Virginia, there’s a disease there but it’s not very deadly and mostly kills people with one foot in the grave. I’m just a simpleton who looks at the data: check out Canada’s official data on ages of deceased.) I think that Waggaman is on to something here: Putin may be, as Atlas might put it, being “Trumped”.

    The image implies Omicron’s origin projects back to 2016. Thoughts run wild as to what this means / foreshadows.

    I get it, the author of the following substack is an ex-con, but interesting nonetheless. There is further intrigue / interplay between Deigen, DRASTIC and this dudes.

    [..] As far back as 2015, Chinese labs were reported to have been involved with dual-use gain-of-function research, mixing and matching viral genomes in the lab, research that accelerated after the Chinese military made a massive push to expand their biotechnological capabilities.

    [..] The successful end results of Baric’s aforementioned  bat coronavirus bio-engineering research at UNC that was critiqued for being too risky in 2015, was published the following year and described the successful bio-engineering of a highly-virulent coronavirus derived from bats which was achieved by tinkering with its spike-protein genes. In this paper, researcher #8 is listed as one “Zheng-li Shi” who’s listed as being attached to the “Key Laboratory of Special Pathogens and Biosafety, Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, China.”

    Essay, stories and picture of veggies we picked before the freeze
    https://www.johndayblog.com/2022/01/billionaires-conspire.html

    All humans experience many constraints upon their possible actions, but there are a few humans who have broad agency to carry out projects which affect all of life on earth, and every human, as well as those not yet born. Vast human projects are managed through vast human organizations, structured to translate a purposeful command into reality. Yes, bureaucracies. As bureaucracies age, particularly after the founder of the bureaucracy dies, they become less able to carry out any function beyond self-preservation. You must have noticed this. It’s true for government, quasi-governmental and corporate bureaucracies.

    You may have been able to get something done in a bureaucracy through the help of a friend within the organization, directing your need to somebody with an ability to service it. That is a lot rarer than it used to be, in my personal experience, but it would not be rare if I were Bill Gates.

    Billionaires today are the people who command vast, successful bureaucracies, usually private or corporate, with minimal supervision, so that they can carry out projects without hindrances and delays. They can commit to timetables and often keep those commitments. Governments make contracts with these functional bureaucracies when they need things done. These bureaucracies also have “helpers” in most government agencies, who are able to fast-track parts of these projects quietly. The functional bureaucracies have ways to help these “helpers”, maybe hiring them when they finish government service, or sharing stock-tips.

    The first article, by Professor Anthony Hall, an investigative journalist, whose academic career focuses on colonialist exploitation of indigenous peoples, looks at the cooperative enterprise by billionaires to save our planet through reducing human population and reducing the use of limited resources by that population, without losing the efficiencies of their own organizations in the process. Of course they need to maintain organizational integrity and function first and foremost, or nothing they plan will actually get done. Maintaining organizational efficacy is their forte, why they are at the pinnacle of command in this world.

    You or I might take exception with their methods. In fact I do take exception. Still, vast bureaucracies only function by reducing many wills and preferences to one will alone, and carrying it out without failure or deviation. No interference or debate can be tolerated or the organization will not be functional and will lose in competitions against functional organizations. All individual initiative must be completely subordinated, eliminated or crushed for the will of the commander to be actualized.

    This takes a tremendous amount of energy to support, because there has to be tight control of each step of a process, coordination of those steps across time and space, and tight control of the final output, also. Vast bureaucracies require vast inputs of energy, raw materials, infrastructure, machinery and communication networks. This has really only become possible at a global scale, and in real time, very recently. One of the threats to society which billionaires can readily see is that the functional bureaucracies can cease to function if critical links are lost, like the internet, or payrolls, or supply of microchips. They are directly threatened as the world goes into more uncertain times. They need ways to lock in their flow of energy, raw and finished materials, and the loyalty of their employees and agents. They need to counter existential threats before those threats can emerge.

    These contingency plans seem to be worked out, and they are not going to allow us to interfere.
    We might interfere, anyway. I’m trying to interfere by writing this. I do not consent to be governed.

    I think that the more typical human way to solve problems is by many smaller groups of humans to do whatever they can to cope and accommodate to changing situations. Some solutions might be transferrable. Billionaires and their bureaucracies cannot look at this mode of problem solving, because it eliminates them and eliminates their agency to accomplish tasks.

    Professor Hall: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Covid Pandemic: A “Truth Bomb” Explodes to Illuminate the War on Humanity
    ​ ​For almost two years we have been experiencing the onslaughts of a brand new form of warring aggression. For all but a tiny percentage of the global population, we have become the targeted enemy. The we that is being attacked extends to most of the global population.
    ​ ​We are being culled in preparation for a new political economy characterized by an A.I. master-slave relation along with massive robotization. It is becoming increasingly clear that the transition to this scheme –which de facto implies depopulation– kicked into gear with the brutal economic and health impacts of the lockdowns and then with the deaths and injuries from the COVID injections.

    The damage to the female reproductive system, seen in all age groups in the VAERS is highlighted here:
    ​…​There are currently 43,350 women who have filed reports to VAERS for female reproductive issues in the context of the COVID-19 injectable products.​..
    ​24% of the reports were made immediately and 39% were made within the first 24 hours.​..
    ​ ​The reason for the excessive proportion of events reported in 0-5 year olds comes about due to the small denominator – ‘only’ 11,791 babies aged 0-5 have been injected so far in the States. Of the 10 babies aged 0-5 in VAERS, 9 are in the Foreign data set (aka: the hiding place) and [warning – do not read this if you are prone to puking] a 5-month and a 6-month old baby succumbed to ‘Vaginal haemorrhage’. The 5-month old is referred to as having ‘Menstruation irregular’. Why in the holy hell is the concept of menses being used in a 5-month-old infant? I read the SYMPTOM_TEXT column and confirmed this to be the case.
    ​ ​Out of these 10 babies, only 3 recovered. That means that 7 died. Only 1 is reported as having died in the “DIED” column indicated by a “Y” entry. Half of them succumbed immediately (VD-OD = 0 → 3 of these did not recover), 1 within 24 hours, 1 within 7 days (this is the one listed as having died), 1 within 22 days and 2 unknown.

    I’ll enter the excerpts:

    Tessa (fights robots) Forced Hospitalization of Dr. Mel Bruchet A retired Canadian doctor was locked up for 25 days.
    Earlier, from Jessica Rose: “Dr. Mel Bruchet is a retired Canadian physician who has recently spoken out about the above background reported still births occurring at Lions Gate Hospital in British Columbia, Canada. Dr. Daniel Nagase has also been speaking out on the subject of above background reporting of miscarriages in Canadian women.
    A few days later, it has been reported that Dr. Bruchet has been taken against his will and had a psych diagnosis assigned to him so that he can be ‘medicated’. Dr. Nagase has become a very prominent voice for the females suffering these losses and for the unborn children they will never get to raise…”

    CDC Not Investigating Myocarditis Death of 13-Year-Old Days After Pfizer Shot, Emails Reveal​
    ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is leaving it to state health departments to investigate deaths reported following COVID vaccines, including the June 2021 death of 13-year-old Jacob Clynick who died of myocarditis three days after his second Pfizer shot.

    The numbers killed by these vaccines is much worse than what we thought, already.​
    Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Dr. Mike Yeadon
    ​ ​But it’s what they’ve just discovered that’s much worse.
    We knew of blood clots from expressing spike protein.
    We were aware of autoimmune attacks on ones own tissues expressing spike protein to which our killer lymphocytes were primed, such as myocarditis.
    ​ ​But what’s new is the revelation that lymph node cells are also being invaded by the gene-based agents and marking THEM for auto destruction.
    When you destroy that part of the immune system, which we loosely call “immune surveillance”, every manner of nasty, latent infections, by viruses & also bacteria, explode, uncontrolled.
    ​ ​Hundreds of millions of people are going to die of unrestrained tuberculosis, Epstein Barr virus, toxoplasmosis etc etc etc
    AND on top of this, the daily accidental production of cancer cells, normally deleted swiftly by immune surveillance, before they can divide, ceases.
    Guess what happens next?

    Russia and China are holding some cards that Washington will not want us to see…
    The Russia-U.S. Talks In Geneva Are Likely To Fail Moon of Alabama
    Like Scott Ritter I am deeply skeptical that today’s talks between the U.S. and Russia in Geneva will have any results:
    If ever a critical diplomatic negotiation was doomed to fail from the start, the discussions between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine and Russian security guarantees is it.
    The two sides can’t even agree on an agenda.
    From the Russian perspective, the situation is clear: “The Russian side came here [to Geneva] with a clear position that contains a number of elements that, to my mind, are understandable and have been so clearly formulated—including at a high level—that deviating from our approaches simply is not possible,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the press after a pre-meeting dinner on Sunday hosted by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, who is leading the U.S. delegation.
    All the U.S. has been willing to do, it seems, is to remind Russia of so-called “serious consequences” should Russia invade Ukraine, something the U.S. and NATO fear is imminent, given the scope and scale of recent Russian military exercises in the region involving tens of thousands of troops. This threat was made by Biden to Putin on several occasions, including a phone call initiated by Putin last week to help frame the upcoming talks.

    Temporary Empty Shelves Are Not a Supply Chain Crisis, It is Important to Understand the Difference
    Initial food instability signs in the supply chain. Things to look for:
    (1) A shortage of processed potatoes (frozen specifically).
    And/Or a shortage of the ancillary products that are derivates of, or normally include, potatoes.
    (2) A larger than usual footprint of turkey in the supermarket (last line of protein).
    (3) A noticeable increase in the price of citrus products.
    (4) A sparse distribution of foodstuffs that rely on flavorings.
    (5) The absence of non-seasonal products.
    (6) Little to no price difference on the organic comparable (diff supply chain)
    (7) Unusual country of origin for fresh product type.
    (8) Absence of large container products
    (9) Shortage of any ordinary but specific grain derivative item (ex. wheat crackers)
    (10) Big brand shortage.
    (11) Shortage of wet pet foods
    (12) Shortage of complex blended products with multiple ingredients (soups etc)
    (13) A consistent shortage of milk products and/or ancillaries.
    ​ ​These notes above are all precursors that show significant stress in the supply chain. Once these issues are consistently visible, we are going to descend into food instability very quickly, sector by sector, category by category. ​ ​https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/01/09/temporary-empty-shelves-are-not-a-supply-chain-crisis-it-is-important-to-understand-the-difference/

    Guess I got snookered by https://theconservativetreehouse.com, shame on them. They are now on my do-not-trust list, that was some seriously proglodyte level yellow journalism ~ Shame on them!

    Anyways, the Lactoferrin + Diphenhydramine protocol is some great news 😉

    Just be aware that Diphenhydramine (1st gen antihistamine, 2nd gen is better for regular use) is not safe to take long-term, I only keep it around for insect bites, though I haven’t used it in at least 15 years…

    Some long-term side effects that Benadryl may cause include:

    – dementia.
    – memory problems.
    – anxiety.
    – dependence or withdrawal symptoms, such as psychosis, when you stop taking Benadryl.

    All blessings,

    Another Blue State Announces Plans For ‘Strike Force’ To ‘Involuntarily Detain’ Unvaccinated

    https://www.infowars.com/posts/another-blue-state-announces-plans-for-strike-force-to-indefinitely-detain-unvaccinated

    Anecdotal: My wife quit her telework job for a MAJOR cruise line, after 5 years, because:

    1> The corps sent out an employee memo demanding vax status by last week of JAN.
    2> Refunds are no longer made & the time limit to use cancelled cruises for future credit has been DRASTICALLY reduced.
    3> There are now 48 separate rules involving cancelling voyages, creating a Catch 22 nightmare for all involved.
    4> No one is calling to book voyages (no bonuses), in fact 99% of the calls she’s fielded for over a month have been to cancel/rebook, with customers becoming irate & verbal abusive, some too the extreme (She’s in sales to boot, not customer service).
    5> Management has become toxically capricious, transforming a job that was once pleasant into a torturously stressful daily gauntlet.

    But the invasion of her medical privacy was the last straw & she’s far from alone in that position…

    They begged her to stay, but she is done.

    Stay safe,

    Washington state is intensifying the pressure on the unvaxxed just like what Trudeau is doing in Canada.

    It is an evil world wide power and control grab.

    I have read the same for travel agents too. All they are doing is trying to re-book or issue refunds. In effect they are working for free. Aĺl of this is by deliberate political design.

    @john-day are those first few paragraphs your own? “All humans experience…” That was brilliant, it made some connections about bureaucracies I’ve been trying to piece together for some time. I had not thought of the corporations in terms of private bureaucracies that are optimized for the purpose(s) of the leader.

    Charles Hugh Smith, the ArchDruid, and Kunstler have all laid out the course and fate of large entities under declining resources. But I think your analysis explains their sudden urgency in the last few years (and especially how the covid response was directed toward this end) It is a gathering of forces by the top leadership, a consolidation of power to grab as much *real* wealth and power as possible while it IS still possible. Because they are fragile/vulnerable in a declining resource/worker-bee/energy base. The merging of global corporations with the state (google, AWS, various banks, and now Pfizer are practically inseparable from the state)

    Where are you getting this information? Where is the evidence? While I believe the vaccines are definitely responsible for more harm than good, you are bringing it into a new stratosphere giving voice to claims like this. I assume you are confident of your sources? Because frankly, it sounds farfetched to me without further information.

    I’m not an anti vaxxer. I am anti this mRNA therapy. Although not harmless, I don’t expect it will cause hundreds of millions of deaths. My biggest concern is the way it is being forced on populations, and how weak the objections have been to this point. I think giving life to exaggerated claims can do great harm to the fight against mandated vaccinations.
