We are now fully in the throes of health fascism:
NSW used to be the one Australian state not going along with all the other fiefdoms in Australia with their lunatic overreactions to the Rona. Now it seems to be seeking to be top dog in the race, with destructive lockdowns, fear-mongering and full-tilt panic porn. Thanks Gladys.
What we now have is an unholy trinity of Big Media, Big Pharma, and Big Government all singing from the same song sheet with hysterical zeal. Scott Morrison and the Federal Government seem to be fully in bed with all this. And we even have those who should know better pushing Covid nonsense.
Peta Credlin of Sky News is usually level-headed, and she has done a terrific job challenging Premier Dan Andrews on his sheer incompetence and mishandling of hotel quarantines and his lockdown mania. But the other day in the Herald Sun she had an opinion piece with this title: “Vaccines can set us free so let’s offer incentives.”
Um, Peta, as I have often stated, incentives in medical treatments actually go against basic medical ethics. And that includes Australian medical ethics. The Australian Immunisation Handbook says this about people receiving vaccines:
They should be given sufficient information (preferably written) about the risks and benefits of each vaccine. This includes:
-what adverse events are possible
-how common they are
-what they should do about them
Criteria for valid consent
For consent to be legally valid, the following elements must be present:
-It must be given by a person with legal capacity, and of sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the implications of receiving a vaccine.
-It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.
Um, carrot incentives or stick punishments both fall under that last point. Enticing people with financial rewards or special privileges and favours and other gimmicks is exactly “undue pressure, coercion or manipulation”. Shame on you Peta.
Speaking of manipulation, also consider the new Covid fear ad now being screened on television. It features an actor pretending she cannot breathe because of the Rona. Plenty of folks have already complained about the alarmism, hyper-overreaction and just plain misleading nature of the ad. But that has not stopped its defenders.
Consider one mindboggling opinion piece in the Melbourne Age. The title said it all: “Shock tactic COVID ad isn’t accurate but ads aren’t about truth, they’re about motivation.” There you go folks: forget the truth, forget the facts – just manipulate emotions, ramp up the fear, and push agendas.
Writing in today’s Australian, Adam Creighton said this: “It’s hard to imagine even woke California producing a propaganda video of a young woman struggling to breathe in hospital. California based its lockdowns on the number of new cases per 100,000; on its measure Sydney wouldn’t even be in the minimal risk tier.”
His entire piece is worth quoting from. In it he looks at the Australian overreaction and compares this with two American states. He begins:
As Sydney prepares for a further extension of lockdown it should be clear that NSW is no Florida. Victoria may be the California of Australia in its draconian response to Covid-19, but its northern neighbour is much the same. It’s splitting hairs to say locking down at 15 rather than five new cases is much of a difference, especially in a global context.
Casting Dan Andrews as a communist villain and Gladys Berejiklian as a Hayekian princess looks comical from abroad. Their states have followed the same strategy of suppression. Melbourne had bad luck early on, forcing the government’s hand; now it’s Sydney’s turn. Lockdowns are a bit like Hotel California: once you check in, the political calculus means governments can’t check out.
The independence of the 50 US states will be an enduring gift to researchers, and to freedom, for generations, having provided the world with numerous experiments in what has worked. Conclusion: not much, it seems. Last week Florida, a state of almost 22 million people, had 23,747 new cases, and more than 170 people die from or with Covid-19. More than half the state isn’t vaccinated, despite wide availability.
As in Sydney, cases are rising but there’s next to no chance any restrictions will be introduced. Republican governor Ron DeSantis apologised for the state’s brief lockdown early last year (blaming widespread panic), made Covid-19 restrictions illegal in May and banned vaccine passports. “To even contemplate doing any type of lockdown, honestly it’s insane,” he has said.
By contrast, California had been in various stages of lockdown for almost 15 months until mid-last month. After a two-week reprieve, Los Angeles has reimposed a mask mandate for indoors, for the vaccinated and unvaccinated. As cases rise again, Democrat governor Gavin Newsom hasn’t ruled out further lockdowns, and the state is launching an electronic vaccine verification system. What’s remarkable is how little difference California’s draconian policies, which destroyed thousands of businesses and up-ended schooling for children for a year, seem to have made.
Florida’s hospitals were never overwhelmed. Yes, many Floridians have died from or with Covid-19: a little more than 38,150 on official figures. But per capita the toll isn’t particularly remarkable in the US, especially given the state, a retirement mecca, has among the oldest populations. Florida’s death toll, adjusted for population, was 25th and California’s 33rd among the 50 US states.
Even the pro-lockdown Washington Post conceded in March that Florida’s “excess deaths” looked little different from other US states. Outcomes in South Dakota and North Dakota, neighbouring states, offer similar lessons. South Dakota’s charismatic governor, Republican Kristi Noem, refused to lock down or mandate masks. Yet South Dakota’s Covid-19 death toll (10th in the US) ended up only 15 per cent more than North Dakota’s (17th). And both states did worse than Iowa, which did practically nothing the entire pandemic.
The US states that had the fewest deaths, such as Hawaii and Alaska, are a long way away, suggesting geography and climate may play an even larger role than bureaucracy in affecting the movement of viruses. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/commentary/lockdown-lessons-in-a-tale-of-two-us-states/news-story/d9166592adf812bc008c270c00097476
But don’t let the facts get in the way of a good lockdown narrative, or the push for mandatory vaccinations. Speaking of which, the calls for compulsory jabs continue apace both here and overseas. Not everyone is sitting down and shutting up about this. For example, Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel in the US has sent an alert in which he warns about where we are heading. He discusses the frightening reactions Danice Hertz, M.D. had to the vaccine, and then says this:
But Dr. Hertz refused to quit OR be silenced. She was on a mission to find other victims AND information to help them. She created a COVID-19 vaccine injury page and was astonished—and horrified—when membership exploded. There were thousands and thousands of shot victims just like her. In fact, there were many whose injuries were even worse than hers. …
-A 12-year-old girl confined to a wheelchair with a feeding tube.
-A mother of two, unable to tolerate light, sound or the touch of her children.
-A healthy teenage boy dropped dead of a sudden massive heart attack.
Strokes, myocarditis, seizures, tremors, hemorrhagic bleeding, miscarriages—the list of injuries and the lives shattered by these COVID jabs is heartbreaking as much as it is infuriating. I wept while watching some of their stories. What are we doing to America? What are we doing to these precious people? The COVID shots were deployed just six months ago. Yet the shots have now caused more deaths than all vaccines combined from 1990 to present, according to VAERS. And VAERS reports less than 1% of all injuries!
In the past 31 years, there have been a total of 5,039 reported deaths from all vaccines combined. In the first six months of 2021, the number of reported deaths from the COVID shots is 9,048. The adverse events are 438,440. That number increases by 25-40,000 more victims each week. These people need medical help—but most doctors have no idea how to treat them, and Big Pharma ignores them as they stuff their bank accounts.
Joe Biden and Big Pharma continue full speed ahead with their disastrous plan to jab everyone. Tyrants want to force Americans to carry proof of COVID shots or be treated as second-class citizens. Biden will even send government agents house to house to gain compliance! This dangerous insanity must stop. The shots are now killing people and injuring them for life. Women are miscarrying at high rates.
NO ONE should EVER be forced to take a drug against their will—especially a shot that skipped the 7-10 years of development and testing. We must put state legislators and Congress on notice: We the American People will NOT tolerate dangerous compulsory shots, or second-class citizenship for wanting to maintain our health without Big Pharma’s COVID drugs.
Here’s the scoop folks: if you want to get the vaxx and think it is just fine, then go for it. I will NOT deny you your right to choose in the matter. But those who have legitimate questions about these vaccines also have a right to say no if they feel that is the right path to take. Where is their choice?
