    March 2020: Dr. Anthony Fauci talks with Dr Jon LaPook about Covid-19

    《 “Right now, people should not be walking, there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” Fauci said at the time:

    “When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is,” he said, warning of the “unintended consequences.” 》

    Beery, Physicians Oath

    From the AMA website:

    AMA Adopts WMA Declaration of Geneva

    (2006) 《The AMA has adopted the World Medical Association’s (WMA) Declaration of Geneva as a contemporary companion to the 2,500-year-old Hippocratic Oath for doctors to declare their commitment to their profession, their patients, and humanity.

    “The Declaration is a short, sharp summary of all that is good about being a doctor in the 21st Century,” Dr Haikerwal said.》

     

    Declaration of Geneva (WMA, 2006)

    At the time of being admitted as a member of the medical profession:

    I solemnly pledge to consecrate my life to the service of humanity;

    I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude that is their due;

    I will practise my profession with conscience and dignity;

    The health of my patient will be my first consideration;

    I will respect the secrets that are confided in me, even after the patient has died;

    I will maintain, by all the means in my power, the honour and the noble traditions of the medical profession;

    My colleagues will be my sisters and brothers;

    I will not permit considerations of age, disease or disability, creed, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race, sexual orientation, social standing or any other factor to intervene between my duty and my patient;

    I will maintain the utmost respect for human life;

    I will not use my medical knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat;

    I make these promises solemnly, freely and upon my honour. 》

    This is easily the most sophisticated operation that Mordor has carried out.  Any major operation has three levels minimum. Three semi-circles of nonsense that you have to jump over.   But a really good operation should have five.

    What is notable about this Covid Syndrome business is that it has made a stooge out of every last person to some extent.  Not even 9/11 was able to achieve this.  Some people were on top of the 9/11 reality right away.  But with Covid some of the smartest people out there were convinced that there wasn’t even a real syndrome.  Unlike me they knew it wasn’t a virus.  So they got stooged that there wasn’t a bioweapon.

    I think Figures has to be happy with himself that at least he knew that it wasn’t a virus.  The virus that the terrorists constructed exists in patents, and computer models only.  In the computer model a virus, takes on all the arch-nasty features that their causal agent has acquired but in highly compact form.  But this computer model virus did not appear to have a counterpart in reality.  Leading some of the smartest people I follow to assume that the entire thing leaned on media hype alone.

    *******

    “A volcano on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma sent lava fountains shooting hundreds of feet into the air on Sunday (Sept. 19), forcing thousands of people to evacuate the area. The volcano, called La Cumbre Vieja or “The Old Summit,” last erupted in October 1971, when lava continually poured from the volcano for more than three weeks, according to NPR. This time around, the volcano is expected to remain active only “for the next few days,” the president of the Canary Islands Ángel Víctor Torres said, Reuters reported. Several streams of lava are still spilling from five fissures in the side of the volcano. One lava stream, measuring dozens of feet wide, reportedly surged over a number of homes in the nearby town of El Paso, from which residents had been directed to evacuate. In all, the eruption has destroyed about 100 homes in villages near Cumbre Vieja, BBC News reported. No casualties have been reported.”

    Jeff Kennett: Victoria’s cancerous leadership eating state from within

     

    Dictator Dan’s “my way or the high way” style of leadership now verges on megalomania — and it shows his government has lost control.

     

     

    The Premier and his government have lost control yet again of the administration of Victoria’s response to the pandemic.

     

    This autocratic style of governing that verges on megalomaniac is totally unacceptable after almost two years of restrictions and lecturing by our elected leaders.

     

    Decisions made late at night without any understanding of the consequences for the community are almost dictatorial. “My way or the highway”, regardless of the damage.

     

    On Monday just before midnight the government closed down the construction industry, except on its own two projects, level crossing removals and the tunnel construction. Neither vital.

     

    Tradies, many of whom are vaccinated with one or two shots, are prohibited in completing electrical, plumbing, or other jobs at your home, let alone trying to finish projects before Christmas.

     

    This is what happens when you have people running the state who have no private sector experience whatsoever. They finish school or university and move straight into the political stream. They keep giving themselves pay rises while making decisions that prohibit others in the private sector from even earning an income.

     

    We Victorians are paying a price, no community in this country has ever experienced before. Not even during war time.

     

    We are being eaten from within by what can be compared to a spreading cancer, but the cancer is the government. If you did not know otherwise, you could believe this was an orchestrated action to weaken the state of Victoria and its people to the point of submission.

     

    Of course, the so-called road map out of the pandemic was no road map at all. Because it failed to deliver one important ingredient. Hope.

     

    What it committed Victorians to was another five or six weeks of lockdown. The community is increasing disillusioned, depressed, and hurting. Importantly, it left unsaid what would happen if we dido not reach 80 per cent double vaccination by the appointed date.

     

    There were a whole range of rewards the government could have offered those who were already vaccinated. They gave none. No hope. They just continue to snarl at the vast majority of law-abiding, vaccinated Victorians.

     

    It is time for a new way. Victoria cannot continue to be destroyed by these Labor apparatchiks who have never directly employed anyone in their lives and who have no appreciation of what makes the world go around.

    I am sure there are many law-abiding non-vaccinated Victorians too but this Jeff Kennett chap perhaps does not acknowledge what is bugging a lot of people, that is being forced into injections to keep a job.

    He simply does not see it and it is a big part of the picture.

    Doc Coleman:

    Nobody is Coming to Save Us!

    Part transcript;

    It has, for one reason or another, been a scary day.

    Driving back home I called in at a petrol station to buy some fuel. The only local place won’t take cash so I put my credit card into the machine and pressed a few buttons. To my relief the machine accepted the numbers. I reached for the nozzle, ready to start pumping fuel when I noticed a new message on the pump’s small screen. I can’t remember the exact words but the gist of it was that my card had been rejected.

    The petrol station wouldn’t take my card and they wouldn’t take cash.

    So the car and I limped home at 10 miles per hour, hoping not to run out of fuel on the way.

    I then spent a good portion of what life I have left ringing the bank to find out what had happened. Apparently, the bank had sent me a new card which had, for unknown reasons, been returned to sender by Royal Mail.

    `So, why doesn’t my existing card work?’ I asked the man at the bank.

    `Well, since your new card had come back, we cancelled your old card,’ explained the bank. They didn’t bother to ask me. They just cancelled it. You haven’t got your new card so now your old card doesn’t work.

    Leaving me with no credit card in an almost cashless world.

    And I suddenly had a glimpse of the dystopian society which awaits in the new world they’re preparing for us. Technically, I can still buy food, though I can’t get to the food shops because I can’t buy fuel for the car. I can’t buy anything online, of course. And I can’t pay bills. The cancelling of my existing card means that online accounts no longer work.

    I did, however, get onto the internet where I found out what’s happening in Slovenia where they have just introduced laws which seem to mean that unless you’ve been vaccinated and wear a mask you can’t buy anything except basic food and medical supplies – but only if the shop you use isn’t in a shopping centre.

    That’s it.

    =========================================

    Bullshit from an old bullshitter.

    Banks don’t just send out new credit or debit cards willy nilly. They most commonly send them out because the customer’s existing card is about to reach its expiry date – which is on the front of the card.

    If you believe his story, I have a bridge I can sell you – no credit or debit cards accepted.
