At this point in the pandemic, you might say 'Zero Covid' is a non-starter. Yet a recent article argues that "COVID-19 must be eliminated". As you might expect, this article ignores the crucial role of immunity.

Some 10,000 people marched through the center of the Austrian capital Vienna on Saturday to protest against restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19, and to demand the resignation of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

Coronavirus skeptics took to the streets as Kurz and his government discussed the possibility of extending the ongoing third lockdown in Austria, which includes movement restrictions and the closure of all non-essential businesses.

As predicted the experimental vaccines is causing unnecessary deaths. There are plenty of cheap and workable treatments, even preventive treatments such as Vitamin D, Zinc, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. After all the governments everywhere are so concerned about old people but they are quite happy to let them die by injecting them with experimental vaccines for which the companies producing them are exempt from all liabilities.

The risks with this vaccine are so high, it is foolish for any healthy or young person to take it since there chance of dying from Covid is less than 0.1% and for older age groups only slightly higher. So why give it to elderly people whose immune systems are already deterioating as they reach old age especially when drugs like Hydroxychloroquine when given early make an excellent preventive. The media have never covered the fact that the study published in the medical journal The Lancet which gave Hydroxychloroquine the bad name, used fabricated data and had to be withdrawn and their findings were as fabricated as the data. The media and government still pretend this did not happen.

So is it surprising now to hear of this latest news reported from Norway and is very likely repeating itself all over the world.

The Norwegian Medicines Agency announced today that 23 people died after receiving the experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID injections.

Norway’s health authorities have allegedly changed their recommendations for injecting the elderly, as all 23 deaths were among people older than 80 years old.

“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated,” Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency said at a webinar on corona vaccine for journalists on Thursday.

All the news media in Ireland have gone ballistic in the last few days ramping up the Covid fear to new extreme levels. There are already 100,000s of people absolutely terrified by their misleading news and this sustained level of fear for over 10 months now is very likely leading to very dangerous health conditions for these people leading to heart conditions, mental issues, cancer and all sorts of problems caused largely by the extreme stress that they have put themselves under because unfortunately the media and the politicians are giving highly distorted, mis-leading inaccurate and sensational news about the Covid situation.

A good example is the news from the past few days where we are told the hospitals are overflowing with Covid patients and as of today it is claimed 46 are dead from Covid.

The aim of this article is to bring some context and reality to this, something the mainstream media and politicians and their bureaucrats are strenuously going out of their way to not do.

The immune systems of old people do not work as well as when they were younger and when faced with an infection the body frequently overreacts and generates an inflammatory response that does more harm. It is well known among medics that vaccines do not work as well in old people because of a weakening immune system. It is just like most things when you get older, none of your bodily systems work like they used to. This gives context to this story from nursing home in New York read full story / add a comment
Your Health Passport to Tyranny
international / rights, freedoms and repression / opinion/analysis Sunday January 10, 2021 21:55 by 1 of indy   image 2 images
There is no doubt about it. China with over 1 billion people is a giant single nation police state. Even before the arrival of 2020 china had it's great digital firewall of China in place which carefully controlled the flow of information. In recent years, the level of digital surveillance via cameras backed by armies of watchers and more recently AI software has rapidly moved the totalitarian system towards greater automation such that their whole social interaction is moving towards a form of social credits which allow what you can do based on how you behaviour and of course whether you are fully compliant with government diktats. There has been some criticism that it is not really like that, but the only response is to say not till now.

However, as reported on RT.com today ( https://www.rt.com/news/512079-beijing-coronavirus-qr-code/ ), China has now introduced health "QR" color coded system and these now have to be used if you want to take a taxi, take a train, fly, go to a restaurants or shopping mall. This is pretty much identical to the system proposed here in Ireland called the Health Passport Europe and promoted and described at https://www.healthpassportireland.ie/ and is the same and compatible with all the other health passports systems proposed EU wide.

If we succumb to this tyranny then life as we know it will be over. The dynamics of totalitarianism is that it never stops and is never content with what it has and further rules and control will get added. We have entered a bureaucrats dream world where no matter how ridiculous the rule or restriction, it gets implemented and every closet authoritarian in officialdom has been given free reign.

In this article it is show that the developments of the last few days show this trend is accelerating and the door is slamming shut behind us. read full story / add a comment

One of the biggest scandals of the COVID Plandemic is the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of people who died needlessly because the FDA refused to issue off-label emergency use for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), a safe drug whose patent ran out years ago, and that thousands of doctors around the world have used effectively, often with a 100% success rate, in treating COVID patients.

And it was reported back in late December that the world's second largest supplier of raw materials to make HCQ blew up. read full story / add a comment

Breaking news. A bit of good news for once. Julian Assange will NOT be extradited to the US to face trumped up charges. This victory should be taken with some caution as no doubt the authorities will try some new trick given that the reasons were on health grounds and the judge basically repeated the lie of all the false accusations made against Assange.

There was in recent days rumours that Trump might pardon Assange and it is possible the Brits decided to not extradite Assange so that they could deny Trump this "victory" and yet they get to keep all the false accusations in place and may even create new fake charges for another go at it later.

In an effort to combat Big Pharma Corporate Media and Big Tech censorship, doctors around the world are frantically trying to warn the masses of the devastating effects of the experimental COVID vaccines about to be mass injected into the unsuspecting public assisted by military forces around the world.

There is reason to believe the COVID-19 vaccine is dangerous. Only those who who know nothing about the criminal record of vaccine manufacturers or the history of vaccine injuries would agree to accept it into their bodies. Its advocates say it is safe and effective, but they cannot produce scientific confirmation of that. Development of previous versions of this same type of vaccine had to be halted due to adverse reactions, including death, with laboratory animals
