It’s not just that he’s stupid, and not just that he’s a thug, but that he has no ability to understand any issue and the only means he has to deal with anything is through the use of force.
Or in this case the wise rule by the use of reason, the average mind rules through what has been learned through experience, the stupid rule only by the use of force since they have no understanding of any of the issues they must personally deal with.
This is direct from Instapundit. Dan Andrews is as thick and dumb as they come, but you would hope that there might be others in his government who see the massive damage the Victorian Government is inflicting on the State and on Australia’s good standing among the nations of the world.
The Aussie government insisted afterward that the rioters were the aggressors, even scolding them for urinating on Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance. Is that the truth or just part of the state’s PR effort to keep the balance of popular opinion on the side of lockdowns by demonizing those who resist them?
The most disturbing video circulating today has no violence in it. It’s this scene of police officers in another part of the country interrogating a man in the interest of “public safety” about whether he knows of any protests coming up. I can’t tell if that’s because they’re worried about a riot in their jurisdiction too or if they’re really willing to go this far to prevent people from congregating in public for fear that they’ll spread the virus. Australia has lost very few people to COVID thanks to their lockdown strategy, but they’ve lost other important things in the process.
As bad as things are getting here in the States, we can’t fathom how much worse things would be without these down-home heroes. Sure, they might carry their paranoid anti-government theories a little too far. But their paranoia is far from unfounded, and even if they sometimes over-react, they keep America from falling into the opposite extreme: creeping tyranny, Aussie style. You can’t boil a frogs if he flips out every time you reach for the knob.
Like them, I’d prefer the burdens of liberty to a warm, sterile despotism. And that seems like an old-fashioned, all-American instinct to me. I can’t see Davey Crockett “sheltering in place” because the Department of Public Health asked him to. I can’t see Teddy Roosevelt triple-masking. I can’t see Johnny Cash stanning Dr. Fauci.
So, my apologies to those anti-maskers in Virginia. I rushed to judge you last summer, and that was wrong. May you continue to resist any whiff of conformism with righteous fury. May you give no quarter to the elite “consensus” of elite “institutions.” And may you never stop being pissed off. It just might save this republic.
I had no interest in making a second video on this topic I said my piece in my original video and was happy to leave it there. But things have escalated in recent weeks and vital information is not being conveyed that can help people make informed decisions for their own health.
Covid treatment protocols from around the world are being ignored and data is being deliberately suppressed as all we continue to hear is Vaccination is the only way forward. While I disagree with the methods protestors have used in our cities in recent days I share their frustrations at mandates and prolonged lockdowns.
But there is a way to go about getting your message across and here is my attempt to do that. The second half of this video contains maybe the most important information you’ll hear regarding the pandemic. What you do with that information is up to you.
Archaeologists investigated the destruction of Tall el-Hammam and discovered an event similar to the description of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Here’s the conclusion, but you should read the story in full since it is such an improbable tale.
The consequences of a crater-forming cosmic impact matched all the evidence found by the archaeologists, but it was dismissed as unlikely because no crater was found in the area.
The most likely cause of destruction was a cosmic airburst caused by a comet or meteorite. The consequences of such an event also match the evidence found by the researchers, and using an impact calculator, they were able to estimate the details of the event, which also involved the shock wave hitting Jericho that was burned to the ground.
Are these things even possible? That it should actually have happened in the midst of an iron age city is incredible and makes you wonder if it could happen again or whether these events happen now but in the middle of nowhere.
Aside from all of the normal reasons not to get the vax is that your life remains exactly the same either way. That will undoubtedly change if the likes of authoritarian fools like Dan Andrews have their way, but so far, not much matters since no one can go interstate, or overseas or even into a cafe. But in the midst of all this I received this letter:
Trust you guys are well. Here is an article you may want to discuss on your blog .
I keep thinking how frustrating and exhausting it must be for you .
And since no one is dying FROM Covid with or without the vax – although there are some undoubtedly dying WITH Covid – there seems little reason to take on the additional risks being vaxxed would bring. Why I should be any more exhausted or frustrated than anyone else, I also cannot fathom.
However, there is this that has popped up this morning in one of the all-in-for-the-vax media companies, this time The Herald Sun in Melbourne: Covid vaccine: How to respond to family members and friends who are anti-vaxxers. My first choice would be a polite form of GFYS, but no one ever raises it with me personally since I tend to follow this issue as closely as anyone, and receive a mass of material every day from people who are similarly concerned about both freedom and the health consequences of taking the vax. But if you would like to see the depths to which these people go, this is from the article. This is how one might respond to someone who says: “It’s been rushed through, it’s not safe”. I take it she means all of the vaxxines when she writes “it”. Her answer:
This is a clear piece of misinformation. Nothing about the vaccine compliance has been rushed.
Ms Hooker explains: “All that has been changed and sped up is red tape and bureaucratic processes. Normally it would take months and months to get human research ethics approvals just because committees don’t meet that often. In this case the committees would meet the next day.
It’s also because of open sharing of information globally because everyone is working towards the same goal. Scientists don’t need to keep their results to themselves to publish under their own name.”
And this is from “a medical ethics expert”. The reality is that these were of course rushed, at Warp speed as was said. And this has nothing to do with paperwork, but checking on their safety through clinical trials. Beyond that, no one, but no one has any idea of the effects of any of the vaxxes two-three-five years from now. What is known is that each of the vaxxes has been trialled in the past with very negative results.
Might also send you over to Small Dead Animals where they have some quite compelling videos of Australian protests which unfortunately I cannot work out how to put up front. But go to the link: You Can Feel Australia Getting Healthier. Australia really does seem to have a particularly stupid set of leaders at the moment.
Virtually everyone at these protests has been vaccinated in the past. But this time, there is so obvious a liars’ agenda in play that if you are not hesitant it may be you who are the idiot.
After three weeks behind bars, anti-lockdown activist and traditional Catholic Monica Smit was granted bail under revised conditions Wednesday.
Smit has been one of Australia’s leading voices in pushing back against her government’s harsh authoritarian response to COVID-19, championing the cause of liberty against the draconian measures that have been imposed upon millions of Australians since March 2020.
Congratulations Monica Smit on your historic Vic Supreme Court win against Vic Police
It was outrageous for Vic Police to try to impose unreasonable & undemocratic bail conditions that kept Monica a political prisoner
Influenza experts never thought they would see the scenario currently unfolding in Australia.
In a month when flu cases are normally rising to a peak, no deaths have been reported anywhere in the country for the year to date. And according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the last Australian death officially attributed to influenza was recorded in July 2020.
And this is the only comment on the site, by one assumes a medical doctor, Dr Edgard Arslan. He wrote:
It is interesting how the Influenza has gone by more 95% world wide , since COVID emerged in 2020. Maybe the restrictions , social distancing and wearing masks has played a big role in the disappearance of influenza ,but it didn’t work for COVID ???.what kind of flu vaccine are we going to give next year (2022) ?. what strain is it going to be covered ??.are we covered with the same vaccine from 2021? is influenza going to disappear for good ??all those questions with out answers so far . we just have to wait and see.
