    Brendan Murphy in the Senate questions is just lying. The guidelines are clear to doctors in Qld and probably elsewhere. Doctors are instructed to use their clinical judgement as to the probability of the vax being involved in the death of the elderly in care. If it’s “old age” or “natural causes”, don’t report. Otherwise do. What busy GP would want all the extra paperwork of reporting?
    Then there’s the actual reports –

    The TGA has identified 11 reports where the cause of death was linked to vaccination from 810 reports received and reviewed.

    So doctors report 810 suspicious deaths but the TGA can only find no other comorbidities in 11! See, it’s safe and effective.
    The bigger scandal is the lack of, or lack of transparency of, autopsies for unexpected deaths. As well known 52 year olds, athletes and many others keep dropping dead, their autopsies would be of great interest.
    The whole thing is a giant, purposeful schemozzle to hide what we know.
    And that emaciated public servant is a large part of the problem. Nursing homes are so snowed under with paperwork such as measuring and documenting decline there’s much less time to provide care that improves quality of life. And why experienced staff have left in droves.

    Graham Hood does an interview with Pilot Alan. Alan is one of the Magnificent 24 suing Qantas.

    It’s a very good interview though Alan Dana’s case won’t be heard till June. Another interesting case (around the 50 minute mark) was also reported presently before the Fair Work Commission where a claimant says that “informed consent” is not “valid consent.” Valid consent is required before you get jabbed, it is illegal to jab someone who doesn’t give his/her valid consent, and if the person is asking for the vaxx due to coercion or is under duress, they cannot give their valid consent.

    The Guardian

    Wed 6 Apr 2022 03.19 AEST
    The world economy may be on the brink of a new inflationary era with persistently higher growth in consumer prices due to the retreat of globalisation, a leading central bank chief has said.

    Agustín Carstens, head of the Basel-based Bank for International Settlements – which is known as the central bank of central banks – said there was a strong risk that prices would rise uncontrollably without a sharp rise in interest rates above existing plans.

    In a speech setting out risks for persistently higher rates of inflation, Carstens said higher borrowing costs could be required for several years to curb the risk of spiralling prices wreaking long-term damage on the economies of the industrialised world…

    You get into a groove and pick it up very quickly. Head chef once walked into the cool room and berated the shit out of us…hot day in Perth and he said….”it is just as fucking hot in there as it is out here!”

    Looks like Clive was in good form.
    Probyn from the ABC seemed furious when attempting to grill Palmer.

    United Australia Party founder Clive Palmer says he’d put the Greens ahead of the Liberal and Labor parties in the upcoming election.

    “My personal perspective, I think I’d put the Greens ahead of Liberal and Labor,” Mr Palmer said.

    “Because they haven’t been in government, and they haven’t been responsible for this debt.

    “So, like the ABC, I’d be putting the Greens ahead of Liberal and Labor.”…

    NYT Confirms Ukrainian Atrocities: Russians Killed in Same Manner as Recent “Massacre”

    The New Atlas
    78.4K subscribers

    The New York Times has verified a video of Ukrainian soldiers torturing, executing and mutilating the bodies of bound Russian soldiers outside of Kiev just miles from a recent alleged “massacre” the Western media and Western governments are blaming on Russia.

    Video evidence of Ukrainians killing in exactly the same manner as these massacre victims is a damning indictment of not only Ukraine’s conduct during this conflict, but also of the Western world’s complicity in covering up and deflecting for Ukraine & its conduct.

    It is a simple process – takes me a couple of minutes to register you. Then a couple of minutes for you to complete the registration. There are instructions on what you need to do.
    That’s all.

    Candy, it’s all about protecting capital $$$

    All of American’s institutions, and other European institutions, have been corrupted by the owners of said capital, and they use the military as a means to both protect their capital and make more money.

    For endless war, you really have to brainwash the population or make sure they never get the opportunity to have any real power through a maverick independent such as Trump.

    These globalists hollowed out the US, however nations that have benefited through their actions, such as China, are now looking at ways to get out of the US dollar. Russia and India want in, and a whole load of other countries pissed off with the US will follow.

    Sure there are other globalist agendas at play, like the WEF Great Reset, but there is a high stakes currency war underway which is going to lead to a lot of conflict.
