    Swiss sprinter and Olympic athlete Sarah Atcho has been diagnosed with pericarditis shortly after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 booster shot.

    Facebook post

    Sarah Atcho
    21 hrs · Adeje, Spain ·
    Obviously as you know, I’m trying to be as transparent as I can and now is more important than ever.
    On December 22 I got my booster vaccination because I didn’t want to struggle with this when the season started. I was told that it was safer to get Pfizer (even though I had Moderna the first time) to avoid cardiac side effects.

    On December 27 I felt a tightness in the chest and started feeling dizzy while walking up the stairs. This happened a few more times until I decided to check with a cardiologist who diagnosed me with pericarditis (inflammation of the thin membrane surrounding the heart).

    I am now not allowed to get my heart rate up for a few weeks to allow my heart to rest and heal from the inflammation.
    I am still doing everything I can with my coach to keep my muscles moving and he’s doing a GREAT job, thank you @patsaile !!

    I have to admit that I am upset at the situation because we don’t talk enough about the side effects. I feel helpless since this is completely out of my control…

    I am glad the vaccine helped avoid many deaths and reduce the pressure on the hospitals and hospital staff however I am frustrated that myself as well as other young and healthy people are suffering from these heavy side effects.

    I hope you understand why it is important for me to share, I’ll keep you guys updated on the process 😘

    let me know if you’re experiencing the same, let’s help each other!

    Novak Djokovic – “Serve to Win”

    When it’s not being cared for, your body will send you signals: fatigue, insomnia, cramps, flus, colds, allergies. When that happens, will you ask yourself the questions that matter? Will you answer honestly and with an open mind?

    Open-minded people radiate positive energy. Closed-minded people radiate negativity. Eastern medicine teaches you to align mind, body, and soul. If you have positive feelings in your mind — love, joy, happiness — they affect your body…But a lot of people, especially closed-minded people, are led by fear. That and anger are the most negative energies we have. What are closed-minded people afraid of? It could be many things: Fear that they are wrong, fear that someone might have a better way, fear that something has to change. Fear limits your ability to live your life.

    Some people at the top feed off of negativity. The way I see it, pharmaceutical and food companies want people to feel fear. They want people to be sick. How many TV ads are for fast foods and medicines? And what’s at the root of those messages? We’ll make you feel better with our products. But even deeper down: We’ll make you fear that you don’t have enough of the things we say you need. It’s crazy — even when you’re completely healthy, they say you need [products] to stay that way.

    Here’s a pattern I’d rather embrace: good food, exercise, openness, positive energy, great results. I’ve been living that pattern for several years now. It works better than the alternative.

    Clive Palmer announces another tilt at federal politics
    By Sean Parnell
    Clive Palmer will personally lead the Queensland Senate ticket of his United Australia Party at the upcoming federal election.

    The Queensland businessman was a one-term MP for his former Palmer United Party, but recently installed former Liberal Craig Kelly as leader of the UAP.

    Mr Palmer announced his intentions to once again run for federal politics (although this time in the upper house) at a press conference today in Brisbane.

    With former candidates and family members also running for the UAP at the upcoming election, Mr Palmer said he wanted to make Mr Kelly the next prime minister.

    He also flagged the potential for the UAP to have the balance of power.

    “Our team stands ready to be the last sentry at the gate of freedom to protect democracy for all Australians in the Senate,” Mr Palmer said.

    The UAP has recently campaigned against, among other things, vaccination mandates.


    I support the UAP, but aren’t Hanson and Roberts both QLD senators? I support them too, so I hope Clive can join them.

    Enquiry re statistical information

    Hi Nicci

    Your letter to the editor got a run in the Cairns Post (FNQ) today, so I visited your site to try and find some statistical information – but I could not find what I was looking for.

    I’m hoping you can help.

    Specifically, I’m looking for information related to myocarditis, pericarditis and myopericarditis (and other cardiomyopathies), by sex and age, and preferably by month, for Australians in 2019, 2020, 2021, and, if possible, year-to-date 2022.

    Do you have such data, or can you point me to where I might find it?

    NHS confirmed that Harman had spoken to a GP.

    From the VAERS website:

    …the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines. VAERS is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VAERS accepts and analyzes reports of adverse events (possible side effects) after a person has received a vaccination. Anyone can report an adverse event to VAERS. Healthcare professionals are required to report certain adverse events and vaccine manufacturers are required to report all adverse events that come to their attention.

    How long were the CDC and FDA planning to ignore the thousands of adverse reactions that have been reported? The regular news reports of deaths of fit and healthy people?

    The doctor says during the phone call that we won’t be hearing about this in the media anytime soon.

    10 mins: Kazakhstan, President and Prime Minister have both fled the country, mobs are arresting police, doctors and politicians. The last straw was when the government mandated that people couldn’t go to the bank to withdraw cash unless they had a passport document.
    16 mins: very strange phone call in the UK, doctor (?) says don’t come for vaxx, all will be withdrawn soon.
    25 mins: 5 children “down” in NZ following the jab, 3 dead in Australia.
    27 mins: Suicides up in NZ, some police dealing with three or four suicides a day. NZ Government changes death recording procedures to show the deaths as “accidental deaths.”
    30 mins: 73 year old anti-vaxxer shoots two neighbours in Melbourne
    35 mins: Pfizer CEO a reptile??? Where’s Anne when you need an explanation.
    39 mins: Karen mums becoming child abusers.
    41 mins: Biden tells audience to buy an electric car as they can drive right across the USA on a single tank of petrol.
    42 mins: Shopkeeper somewhere in Australia arrested by 3 female police. They had to struggle even though he didn’t put up a fight.
    47 mins: No life insurance for the jabbed. Insurance company said people knew the jab was experimental so they aren’t covered. I’ve heard previously that private health insurance companies have said the same, can’t verify.
    51 mins: 85 year old Canadian farmer talks about some elderly neighbours who were denied a meal at a restaurant as they didn’t have a passport which they didn’t know about. The farmer says it’s time to start hanging people for their disrespectful treatment of the elderly.
