Canada-Russia Moscow 1972

I game I have never seen before since I was hitchhiking in Europe when it was played, and we arrived in Paris not knowing the score. So we bought a copy of Le Monde where there was a story that filled two columns with everything in it describing the atmosphere at the game and the history of Canada-Russia hockey but with no actual score. But there at the end, there was a two-line para that I could barely decipher as saying that Canada had won the game.

I moved to Australia in 1975 so that the Canadian team has all the players I remember. I wouldn’t know a single player on a single team in the NHL, or even on the Leafs, but here I know everyone, including the announcer who was Foster Hewitt, who broadcast the Leaf games for my entire youth.

And of course, it was that last minute of the game where Paul Henderson – a Maple Leaf – scored the goal that has remained undoubtedly the single most thrilling goal in the history of Canadian hockey. Even as I watched it, and for me it was for the first time, I felt the tension, even though I know how it ended. Who could ever forget?

Might add, that my children are ethnic children, both played hockey (not ice hockey, but hockey unlike grass hockey which is a non-existent nothing to me). I also was at the game when Toronto last won the Stanley Cup. Alas, the Leafs are the worst sports franchise in North America and are unlikely to win The Cup anytime in my own lifetime.

Will just finish by saying that I had the enormous pleasure of playing hockey with my sons when we lived in Canberra. These are the memories that really matter, even more than who won between the Russians and the Canadians back in 1972.

Is it murder to withhold medication that would cure them from someone with an illness?

This is the story at the link: Australia admits it is banning ivermectin for COVID because it interferes with universal vaccine agenda. That is, since Ivermetin will stop Covid in its tracks, no one would be vaxxed if Ivermectin weren’t banned by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). As it says in the post:

There are a number of significant public health risks associated with taking ivermectin in an attempt to prevent COVID-19 infection rather than getting vaccinated. Individuals who believe that they are protected from infection by taking ivermectin may choose not to get tested or to seek medical care if they experience symptoms. Doing so has the potential to spread the risk of COVID-19 infection throughout the community.”

That’s it! That is the reason they not only oppose ivermectin here and in Australia, but oppose hydroxychloroquine, budesonide, fenofibrate, and any and all forms of preventive and outpatient treatment. Doctors have even told me they have had prescriptions blocked by pharmacists for antibiotics or prednisone, if they think they are being used for COVID. This is the most evident admission yet from the Australian government that it can’t afford to get rid of the virus with something so cheap because it will obviate the need for the vaccine … and the totalitarian agenda accompanying it.

Then there’s this which comes next:

Officials don’t like the dosage being used by doctors prescribing for COVID. “Secondly, the doses of ivermectin that are being advocated for … are significantly higher than those approved and found safe for scabies or parasite treatment,” writes the TGA in the press release. “These higher doses can be associated with serious adverse effects, including severe nausea, vomiting, dizziness, neurological effects such as dizziness, seizures and coma.”

Which, even if true, has an obvious solution which is to prescribe dosage levels which do not lead to harm. But as pointed out:

Studies have already been done for years showing that ivermectin is safe to take at much higher doses than the 0.2-0.6 mgs per kilogram of weight that most doctors are prescribing. A 2002 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of ivermectin use for head lice in Miami found zero evidence of toxicity even for people talking 30-120 mgs of ivermectin, exponentially higher than any COVID dosing.

Lastly, Ivermectin has become so popular, that there are shortages developing to treat people who have scabies and other non-fatal parasitic diseases. This is the TGA speaking:

“Finally, there has been a 3-4-fold increased dispensing of ivermectin prescriptions in recent months, leading to national and local shortages for those who need the medicine for scabies and parasite infections.”

So it’s safe for scabies but not for Covid. And no one is worrying about overdoses here.

The final sentence:

If ivermectin is guilty of something, it’s that it actually works.

If we’re looking for the guilty party, it’s the TGA.

If one Smartie in a thousand is poisoned how many would you eat?

On this one, after you have read the text below, go to the link and read the personal stories of those who have had a bad reaction to the vaxxines. This is the story – Facebook Post from TV Station Accidentally Reveals More People are Dying from the Vaccine than the Media is Reporting.

A local ABC news station accidentally opened up Pandora’s Box with a recent and now viral Facebook post. Currently boasting 64k+ shares, the post asked for stories about people that lost a loved one because they *weren’t* vaccinated….what ended up happening was a massive deluge of comments from people that had lost loved ones right after the vaccine instead. The number of actual deaths and side effects from the vaccine is something many suspect the media, Big Pharma, this illegitimate administration, and the CDC are personally covering up. Apparently the CDC doesn’t consider anyone that dies within 2 weeks of the vaccine as an actual “vaccination death” and of this post is as telling as it seems to be…..a LOT more people are dying from this vaccine than anything else. The vaccine clearly doesn’t stop people from getting covid, and it’s got a lot of people wondering why they’re pushing it so hard at all. I screenshot as many comments as I could as Facebook is already targeting the post and asking people if they “really” want to share it.

There are literally too many to go through for one article. It’s also interesting because so many people like me are currently in “Facebook jail” for daring to question the vaccine, so we have no idea how many more stories of vaccine deaths from people who can’t currently see it or comment there are. Here are some of the top posts and if it’s any indication…..we’ve got a massive, horrific problem being swept under the rug by the government.

Now go to the link but here are the first two before they are all made to disappear.

Just because it never ever worked before is no reason not to try it again

Both of these are about public spending as the road to economic growth, as in there is no such thing.

Amity Shlaes on Biden As the New FDR: It’s the same old bad deal for jobs.

Not until World War II did joblessness finally begin to subside, in good measure because of military mobilization — important, but not the same as peacetime employment.

As often discussed, errors in monetary policy contributed to the misfortune that was the 1930s. The cause of the duration of the Depression, though, was Washington’s persistent intervention. The chief economist at Chase, Benjamin Anderson, noted that after failing by playing God, the government chose not to retire but simply “to play God more vigorously.”

The first lesson of this sorry account is that an arbitrary national economic campaign from atop generates damaging uncertainty in the economy. However charmingly it reverberates, the very phrase “bold persistent experimentation” stifles growth.

The second point is that what helps the union hurts the worker. President Biden’s proposal to end “Right to Work,” if it becomes law, will dramatically stifle employment.

William Jennings Bryant Scopes Trial Summation

This is the statement William Jennings Bryant was to deliver at the end of The Scopes Trial on the teaching of evolution in Tennessee schools in 1923. Having now come across this for the first time, I have a new respect of Bryant that I had never had before.

But as you read this, ask yourself whether any of this will have any grip on a people who are no longer Christian, and where their enemies on the left absolutely reject Biblical authority. Socialism is about the supposed equal sharing of what can be produced without any moral or spiritual guidance offered by the underlying philosophical framework. Socialism is now the ethos of the very rich who have no more interest in sharing what they have with others than the court of Louis XVI was interested in sharing with the peasantry of France in 1792. But in our day, our aristocrats pretend they are on the side of the peasantry which makes them utterly secure against a revolutionary tide. The speech is found here.

Science is a magnificent force, but it is not a teacher of morals. It can perfect machinery, but it adds no moral restraints to protect society from the misuse of the machine. It can also build gigantic intellectual ships, but it constructs no moral rudders for the control of storm-tossed human vessel. It not only fails to supply the spiritual element needed but some of its unproven hypotheses rob the ship of its compass and thus endanger its cargo. In war, science has proven itself an evil genius; it has made war more terrible than it ever was before. Man used to be content to slaughter his fellowmen on a single plane, the earth’s surface. Science has taught him to go down into the water and shoot up from below and to go up into the clouds and shoot down from above, thus making the battlefield three times as bloody as it was before; but science does not teach brotherly love. Science has made war so hellish that civilization was about to commit suicide; and now we are told that newly discovered instruments of destruction will make the cruelties of the late war seem trivial in comparison with the cruelties of wars that may come in the future. If civilization is to be saved from the wreckage threatened by intelligence not consecrated by love, it must be saved by the moral code of the meek and lowly Nazarene. His teachings, and His teachings alone, can solve the problems that vex the heart and perplex the world.

It is for the jury to determine whether this attack upon the Christian religion shall be permitted in the public schools of Tennessee by teachers employed by the state and paid out of the public treasury. This case is no longer local, the defendant ceases to play an important part. The case has assumed the proportions of a battle-royal between unbelief that attempts to speak through so-called science and the defenders of the Christian faith, speaking through the legislators of Tennessee. It is again a choice between God and Baal; it is also a renewal of the issue in Pilate’s court.

Again force and love meet face to face, and the question, “What shall I do with Jesus?” must be answered. A bloody, brutal doctrine–evolution–demands, as the rabble did 1,900 years ago, that He be crucified. That cannot be the answer of this jury representing a Christian state and sworn to uphold the laws of Tennessee. Your answer will be heard throughout the world; it is eagerly awaited by a praying multitude. If the law is nullified, there will be rejoice wherever God is repudiated, the savior scoffed at and the Bible ridiculed. Every unbeliever of every kind and degree will be happy. If, on the other hand, the law is upheld and the religion of the school children protected, millions of Christians will call you blessed and, with hearts full of gratitude to God, will sing again that grand old song of triumph:

“Faith of our fathers, living still, In spite of dungeon, fire and sword; O how our hearts beat high with joy Whene’er we hear that glorious word–Faith of our fathers–Holy faith; We will be true to thee till death!”

How will a modern conservative prosecute the case for a moral order when no moral code beyond Marxism exists for the vast majority of the population?

A discussion of The Scopes Trial is found here in which Bryant’s speech is partically quoted, and not surprisingly with only an entirely veiled reference to Biblical beliefs. This is what is quoted, and this is about as far as one might go in the modern world to reference the teachings of the Bible.

Science is a magnificent force, but it is not a teacher of morals. It can perfect machinery, but it adds no moral restraints to protect society from the misuse of the machine. It can also build gigantic intellectual ships, but it constructs no moral rudders for the control of storm-tossed human vessels. It not only fails to supply the spiritual element needed but some of its unproven hypotheses rob the ship of its compass and thus endanger its cargo….If civilization is to be saved from the wreckage threatened by intelligence not consecrated by love, it must be saved by the moral code of the meek and lowly Nazarene. His teachings, and His teachings alone, can solve the problems that vex the heart and perplex the world. 

No political leader in the West would be able to say anything like that and continue to hold office.

No one knows why vaxxinations are being so strongly pursued by governments

How frightening is this:

  • According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you’re not counted as fully vaccinated until a full 14 days have passed since your second injection in the case of Pfizer or Moderna, or 14 days after your first dose of Janssen, despite the fact that over 80% of deaths after the vaccines occur in this window. How convenient.
  • Anyone who dies within the first 14 days post-injection is counted as an unvaccinated death. Not only does this inaccurately inflate the unvaccinated death toll, but it also hides the real dangers of the COVID shots, as the vast majority of deaths from these shots occur within the first two weeks.
  • The CDC also has two different sets of testing guidelines — one for vaccinated patients and another for the unvaccinated. If you’re unvaccinated, CDC guidance says to use a cycle threshold (CT) of 40, known to result in false positives. If you’re vaccinated, they recommend using a CT of 28 or less, which minimizes the risk of false positives.
  • The CDC also hides vaccine failures and props up the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” narrative by only counting breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization or death.
  • Hospitals are still also reporting non-COVID related illnesses as COVID-19.

In a June 30, 2021, appearance on Fox News, epidemiologist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough pointed out that “It is very clear from the U.K. Technical Briefing19 that was published June 18 that the vaccine provides no protection against the Delta variant.”20

The reason for this is because the Delta variant contains three different mutations, all in the spike protein. This allows this variant to evade the immune responses in those who have received the COVID jabs, but not those who have natural immunity, which is much broader.

Even so, the Delta variant is far milder than previous variants, according to the U.K.’s June 18, 2021, Technical Briefing.21 In it, they present data showing the Delta variant is more contagious but far less deadly and easier to treat. As McCullough told Fox News:

“Whether you get the vaccine or not, patients will get some very mild symptoms like a cold and they can be easily managed … Patients who have severe symptoms or at high risk, we can use simple drug combinations at home and get them through the illness.

So, there’s no reason now to push vaccinations.”

There obviously is a reason since vaxxinations are being pushed as hard as they possibly can. The problem, however, is that we don’t know what that reason is.

And there is this as well: Soaring through the roof: Vaccine deaths skyrocket.

The report explained the Vaccine Adverse Event Report System gets more than 60,000 reports each year, including 1,400 deaths that are documented on average.

But since COVID was unleashed on the world, “there have been 14,701 deaths reported,” the report said.

And this is obviously only since the Covid vaxxination program began.

Painting lipstick on a pig, Victorian version

This is an article about how Daniel Andrews’s despicable nature has been painted over and hidden: Digital Dan’s ex-social media guru reveals his secrets (that’s the actual headline on the paper, not online btw). This is the kind of work required to disguise someone who may be the most repulsive political leader in Australian history.

Dan Andrews’ Father's Day Twitter post.

His decisions have led to hundreds of deaths because of the Covid (850 out of Australia’s total number of covid deaths which are around 1100). He has massacred the Victorian economy whose public sector will be unable to pay its bills. He has no conception of how an economy works and is an ideologically empty vessel who has transformed Melbourne from the most livable city in the world to a backwater.

Daniel Andrews, spreading misery wherever he goes

In dealing with Daniel Andrews you have to begin with an understanding that he hates normal people going on about their own lives in their own way. If he can bring unhappiness to others, he is front and centre. So we have this: Rabbis’ request denied. And what request was that?

HEALTH authorities have refused a request from Melbourne’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish community to celebrate their holiest day of the year in person.

Let’s see if we can find some additional detail.

Nine Melbourne rabbis and seven medical providers called on Daniel Andrews to allow them to observe Yom Kippur with small gatherings.

Yom Kippur – which begins at sunset on Wednesday – is described as the “holiest day on the Jewish calendar”.

The community leaders – which represent up to 1500 families who observe the Torah – on Monday called to be allowed to run services at synagogues, subject to density quotients and with groups limited to 10 men plus those running the service.

They said gathering would be held outdoors where possible, with pre-registration, Covid-marshals, masks and social distancing all in place.

The leaders even said the services could be limited to inner-east postcodes – including 3162 covering Caulfield, 3183 (Balaclava) and 3185 (Elsternwick and Ripponlea) – with low case numbers.

But the Health Department said chief health officer Brett Sutton could only provide exemptions to the limits on public or private gatherings if they related to end-of-life events.

And a bit more.

In a letter to Mr Andrews, the group argued Jewish people were more “constrained, limited and disconnected” than any other religious group.

“Unlike other denominations and religious groups, we do not have the option of electronic broadcast or the use of any other technology on our Sabbath and Jewish festival days, due to the restrictions of Jewish Laws on these days,” the letter read.

“Needless to mention that this is having a detrimental spill-over effect in many ways on our members and their respective families.

“Our members, in regular times, attend synagogue thrice daily.

“It is, so to speak, our second home.”

The group said Yom Kippur was also the one day that almost every Orthodox Jew would attend synagogue.

“Our members could not fathom the idea of not praying together on this day,” the letter continued.

“It would be fair to state that religious services in a place of worship, on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, are more essential than a Thai boxing event.”

Andres, of course, ducked out of personal responsibility, but you may be sure he was the one who made the decision.
