    In a Highwire exclusive, Deborah Conrad, a hospitalist physician’s assistant on the frontlines of the pandemic, pulls back the curtain on the complete lack and disregard in her hospital for reporting Covid vaccine injury to VAERS, this country’s only mechanism to track the safety of these rushed-to-market, mandated products. In riveting detail, including emails & recorded phone conversations, Conrad exposes the internal push to turn a blind eye to injuries and “tow the company line” that this vaccine is safe.

    “”””  Other reasons are that the UK has a small nuclear industry, and lacks both the relevant nuclear technology and sufficient money to develop, build and operate atomic powered aircraft carriers. “””

     

    I think that is the reason the Brits went for a Aircraft Carrier powered by a gas turbine rather than a nuclear reactor.

    Apparently a gas powered ship has one advantage that may never be needed. Apparently once the gas turbine has been turned off it is easy to turn on. You just put the key into the ignition , turn the key and off you go. If a nuclear reactor has been turned off apparently  it does not take days or weeks but months to turn back on. So while the US ship may be stuck in port trying to restart the nuclear reactor the UK ship has left port and is doing its job.

    We could start with reading what this fellow has to say:

    By: Shoshoni
    Updated April 14th 2020
    The focus on the cure for the Covid 19Flu Virus” has been touted over and over again as Hydroxychloroquine and other quinolines.
    “What class of pathogens, respond to drugs like Hydroxychloroquine?”
    The Plasmodium Parasite, or parasite of the blood plasma.  This is specifically a parasite that affects the oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells which causes Malaria and other similar diseases in humans and responds to treatment with Quinolines.

    ____________________________________________

    The initial interest in using anti-parasitical treatments came from a French doctor’s observations in January or February 2020. He was treating patients successfully using Chloroquine, I don’t know if zinc or other treatments were part of his regime.

    Interest in using antiparasitic treatments grew from his observation, hence the later interest in Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. I don’t know why these treatments appear to work, it is assumed that they have some special anti-viral properties which defeats the Covid-19 virus, but I wonder if there’s more in play here.

    Given that three known anti parasitical treatments; Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin defeat the Covid-19 virus, there must be something more than a virus at work here.

    List of demands from protestors:

    Protesting construction workers have gathered again near CFMEU headquarters, issuing a list of demands and calling for the resignation of Premier Daniel Andrews.

    The group is demanding an immediate end to lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates.

    Protesters have also called for the resignation of top political leaders including Mr Andrews in addition to the “mass distribution of ivermectin, vitamins C, D and zinc.”

    The list of demands was posted in an encrypted Telegram group promoting the protest outside CFMEU.

    Other demands include the immediate resumption of construction work in locked down parts of Victoria.

    A man has taken his own life at a West Melbourne building site, hours after a construction shutdown was announced.

    The body of a man was found at a Spencer St work site about 7am on Tuesday.

    It’s understood he took his life at the Crema Construction site located near Roden St.

    A source with knowledge of the death said: “This wasn’t a workplace accident, it was a suicide”.

    Police will prepare a report for the Coroner and Worksafe is investigating.

    “Emergency services were called to the Spencer St address following the discovery of the man’s body sometime after 7am,” a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.

    “Sadly, the man, who is yet to be formally identified, died at the scene.”

    The tradesman’s death is expected to supercharge the protest outside CFMEU headquarters today.

    “Given that three known anti parasitical treatments; Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin defeat the Covid-19 virus, there must be something more than a virus at work here.”

    I am by no means expert on the matter, however my understanding is that:

    HCQ and IVM both “gum up” the ACE2 cell surface receptor, and this is the “path” that both the malaria parasite and COVID-19 use to “enter” the cell. Thus, instead of “sticking” to (and then “entering”) the cell, the virion “falls off” and needs to try another cell.
    Both are also zinc ionophores, which means they tend to increase the amount of zinc in the cell – zinc being “toxic” to the RNA the virus introduces into the cell in order to replicate, thereby reducing viral replication.
    IVM is also anti-inflammatory – reducing/moderating the “cytokine storm” that appears to cause the major damage to the lungs.

    Thus 1 helps to provide chemical prophylaxis (preventative), while 2 reduces viral load and 3 “tones down” the excessive immune reaction from high viral loads.

    Of course, having IVM at the start is better than at “late stage” of the disease, as there are more things it can do – if you only get it when you are having trouble breathing, it is likely you already are battling a large viral load, so only the anti-inflammatory action comes much into play, whereas early on it reduces the number of cells infected as well as reducing the amount of virions each infected cell produces, which gives your natural immune system both a greater chance to “encounter” a virion in the body, and also more time to “gear up” for the fight (produce appropriate anti-bodies).

    But you also need plenty of zinc, vitamin D and other “trace nutrients” (like Vit C etc) to fight off this virus – as you do for many infections.

    I would also note that “natural immunity” (from having been infected) seems to create anti-bodies to more than just the “spike protein” – other virion surface proteins as well as “internal” ones (as the immune system creates anti-bodies based on the “wreckage” of destroyed virions, not just the outer surface). This obviously creates a “broader spectrum” of anti-bodies, and may be why people who were infected with SARS-1 have anti-bodies that attack COVID-19 (they are essentially immune to COVID-19) and are much less likely to be infected by any of the “variants” (SARS-1 and SARS-CoV-2 are about 80% similar in RNA terms).

    You are beginning to sound like one of those rightwingcrazyconspiracy nutters like me :p     ”

    Its like you are calling into question something that should be so self evident………..of course the State, its politicians & CMO &CHOs & the controlled media love us all  & only wants the very best for us all, else why would they avoid something so cheap incredible safe & effective remember [its out of patent protection] & threaten anyone talking,promoting or prescribing it & instead insist of going with an unproven, experimental treatment .

    The sorry history of these CVjabs over the past 20 yrs shows that all previous versions failed once the test animals were re exposed with them all expiring, which raises questions about what this current delta type is as its being claimed overseas where the alternate media is able to report these things, that at least 80%+ of those hospitalised are already jabbed.

    Loved the comment from the young girl from ch9 reporting on the march down Vic parade a few hours back, about the marchers not wanting or being willing to do the ‘Right Thing’……..willing to bet she has a degree in journalism or whatever they are calling it these days & as she appeared to be of Vietnamese background, her folks would probably have a very different opinion of this action of state control.

    We are all very lucky that these workers at least haven’t been overeducated by our educational system & made to refuse to deny their innate commonsense & still have a belief in their own innate immune system…& are obviously have a broader perspective than that ”reporter”

    These and other editorial amendments, including the addition of a subtitle identifying the Declaration as a “Physician’s Pledge,”

    Kudos to the thousands of heroes who marched (mostly) peacefully through Melbourne CBD today… and then sang and danced atop Westgate Bridge.

    What a stirring sight!

    Images from the Canary Islands.

    *******

    “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.”

    Somehow the following component of the original Hippocratic oath got lost

    I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

    Adam, I was alerted on the Flash Cat to your post about hotel quarantine with your wife and six kids.  I copied some of it over there because it is one hell of a tale.

    You are the best dad to your kids.  What more can be said?  We are living in tyrannical times and somehow even those who have suffered far more than most still keep going.

    All praise to you and I hope your business works well in Queensland.

    Where are the disclaimers about following government orders that violate those pledges? 2020 Addendum?

    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.
