We do not deserve the freedoms we have inherited from our ancestors

The editors gave the article the title The Failed Covid Response but the article really is about what a bunch of morons we are who do not deserve the freedoms we have inherited from our ancestors. Let me take to near the end of what is a very long article:

We need an honest discussion about how we proceed from here, and it must be free of the bullying, dogmatism, and bad faith exhibited by many experts over the past two years. The Science™ has held up poorly and will likely crumble further as time goes on, but that will not stop defenders of COVID policies from insisting it was all worthwhile.

That question—was it worthwhile?—cannot be answered by numbers, no matter how they are sliced and diced. We had a social contract before COVID hit. Like all social contracts, it emerged organically over time, and perhaps it needed to be revisited. But there was no such debate in 2020. The contract was simply tossed overboard, along with the values and principles underscoring it. Any suggestion that this was perhaps a bit precipitous was deemed morally reprehensible.

We acted as if we were on the Titanic with only minutes to work out what to do. It was a media-led pandemic for which there was virtually no evidence of anything unusual for virtually everyone. If we don’t learn from this great social disaster about the kinds of political leaders we have somehow put in place, we will all end up serfs subservient to some of the most incompetent people who have ever achieved high office.

It’s all asches, vaxxines that is

From Vaccine Skeptics are the True Critical Thinkers. This is what caught my eye:

The Asch Experiment

“All experts agree that the vaccine is safe and effective. ”

That was enough to get most people vaccinated. Except that anyone could ask two questions:

  • How can I know that all experts agree, if those disagreeing are not allowed to speak up?
  • How can anyone know that “Covid vaccine” is safe and effective, if no time actually passed to ensure that?

Finally, someone with just a bit of knowledge could also ask a question, “are you sure that it is safe and effective, if no coronavirus vaccine ever worked, and no mRNA product was ever approved”?

And if you would like to know more about the Asch Conformity experiment you can go the link or perhaps here. As for how safe the vaxxines in reality are, there is so much evidence being suppressed and unreported that it must by now be wilful ignorance amongst people who do not wish to realise the extent to which they have been sold a bill of goods.

The Greatest Fraud in History

Came across this: Wall Street analyst: COVID vaccines ‘greatest fraud in history’. This is the point:

Dowd and a Wall Street insurance analyst with whom he has teamed, concludes the CDC data show the Millennial generation suffered a “Vietnam War event,” with more than 61,000 excess deaths from March 2021 to February 2022.

That is more than just fraud, but mass murder if it’s true. But so far this only in my view makes it to second place. Above it is Global Warming about which I received a note today which said this:

Pursuing a Net Zero by 2050 target will jeopardise our energy independence and national security and raise the cost of living for mainstream Australians without making any discernible impact on global temperatures.

I see phrases like this all the time: “without making any discernible impact on global temperatures” as if this is a real problem that needs to be solved but we are perhaps either not doing enough or doing the wrong thing. For myself, the entire issue is a fraud. There is no problem that needs solving. There will be enormous costs across the world but nothing will be achieved since it is a non-existent problem, much in the same way as I think about Covid. This is not the return of the Great Plague, in the same way that Global Warming hysteria is not directed at an actual problem that is in need of solution.

The Number One fraud, to me, is and has been for a long time, modern macroeconomic theory with its fundamental equation learned by every socialist in their first year in economics: Output is the sum of Consumer Demand [C], Private Investment [I] and Public Spending [G]: Y=C+I+G.

So if there is unemployment then all the government needs to do is increase its level of spending [G] and the problem is solved.

The inflation in the US followed by the eventual collapse in its economy will demonstrate just how insane – and also fraudulent – this policy is. Trillions have been wasted over the years in pursuing this agenda with no success at any time ever in history anywhere.

But while the cretins who are funding their own lives along with their mates will do very well out of it, the rest of us will need to scramble just to stay ahead of the pack. See Venezuela (and Cuba, and the former Soviet Union) for examples of just how disastrous such policies can be.

It’s always for political reasons

This is from The Spectator online:

Xin Du asks if the Daniel Andrews government in Victoria is keeping children masked for political, rather than medical reasons…

Masking children is idiotic but you may be sure Andrews has focus-grouped this to the fullest extent possible. Of course, it’s not for medical reasons. In politics it is always for political reasons. It’s embarrassing to read such inane things from a source where I expect them to know better.

Can this be true? “Covid Jab Deadlier than Covid for Anyone Under 80”

Covid Jab Deadlier Than Covid for Anyone Under 80.

  • Recent data analysis shows the COVID jab is deadlier than COVID-19 itself for anyone under the age of 80. For younger adults and children, there’s no benefit, only risk
  • All age groups under 50 years old are at greater risk of dying after receiving a COVID jab than an unvaccinated person is at risk of dying from COVID-19
  • For those under 18, the COVID jab increases their risk of dying from COVID-19. They’re also 51 times more likely to die from the jab than they are to die from COVID if not vaccinated
  • Only when you get into the 60 and older categories do the risks between the jab and COVID infection become about even. In the 60 to 69 age group, the shot will kill one person for every person it saves from dying of COVID, so it’s a tossup as to whether it might be worth it for any given person
  • Data suggest U.S. deaths reported to VAERS are underreported by a factor of 20

Suppose it is true, or nearly true. The one thing I do not expect is to hear the actual truth from the media.

Why is everyone so frightened?

By far the deepest insights into the pandemic, and the resistance by the truckers, is provided by David Solway, with this is his best effort yet. There is an agenda in play, and whether you believe it or not, you should pay attention because once we have gone beyond the point of no return, there will be no return. Even as it is, the fear that so many now have of this covid-flu is astonishing. Virtually no one dies, our hospitals are not overrun, while the cornonavirus keeps getting milder as each new iteration is revealed. Yet we are led by completely hysterical political fools who insist they are saving us from much worse.

This is David’s latest article, ‘Pandemic’ Truths: Time for a New Narrative. Here is the central point, but found only towards the end.

According to famed German economist Christian Woolf, the pandemic shutdown was part of a larger strategy whose purpose was to collapse the world economy and bring in a digital or programmable currency controlled by a central bank. “What we are witnessing now,” Woolf writes, “is an attempt to provoke the greatest social chaos by every conceivable means, to wait until the chaos has reached its maximum intensity, and then, with the help of a panacea called ‘universal basic income’, to move from a situation of maximum chaos to one of total control.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has arrived at the same conclusion. The official Covid response mechanism was pre-planned and deployed to further the aims of the Great Reset. When one recalls that many world leaders and influential individuals are graduates of Schwab’s Young Global Leaders school, including Angela Merkel, Jacinda Ardern, Tony Blair, Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau, Boris Johnson, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and many more, global and procedural uniformity among 186 countries becomes understandable.

The fear everywhere is so unreasonable but it is stoked to the highest extent possible on every occasion. Other than the truckers in Canada, there is no serious movement across the world to undo these mandates and let us get back to our old way of life.

There are few ways to discuss the convoy without asking why we are still shutting our own economy down

The least-covered news story of the past week is the truck convoy that has converged on Ottawa. If you had any doubt before now that our media are as corrupt as the media in America, this ought to cure you of any thoughts that you can get all the news from our papers. It really is shameful, but the reality is that there are few ways to discuss the convoy without raising the question why we are still shutting our own economies down, with very little reason to expect any change any time soon, or for any explanation of why all this continues to go on. Which is why we hear nothing whatsoever about any of it.

A very insightful story about the convoy is told by a local resident who thought he might go out among the truckers and chat to see what they are up to and who they actually are: A night with the untouchables. Lots to read but let me give you this and you can read the rest yourself.

As I finally made my way back home, after talking to dozens of truckers into the night, I realized I met someone from every province except PEI. They all have a deep love for this country. They believe in it. They believe in Canadians. These are the people that Canada relies on to build its infrastructure, deliver its goods, and fill the ranks of its military in times of war. The overwhelming concern they have is that the vaccine mandates are creating an untouchable class of Canadians. They didn’t make high-falutin arguments from Plato’s Republic, Locke’s treatises, or Bagehot’s interpretation of Westminster parliamentary systems. Instead, they see their government willing to push a class of people outside the boundaries of society, deny them a livelihood, and deny them full membership in the most welcoming country in the world; and they said enough. Last night I learned my new neighbours are not a monstrous faceless occupying mob. They are our moral conscience reminding us – with every blow of their horns – what we should have never forgotten: We are not a country that makes an untouchable class out of our citizens.

And let me add that if they were the kinds of people  who “make high-falutin arguments from Plato’s Republic, Locke’s treatises, or Bagehot’s interpretation of Westminster parliamentary systems” they would be as empty of anything worth listening to as the kinds of people who have brought us into the mess we are in who cannot find a way out.

There is also this, the first statement in the Canadian Parliament of Candice Bergen who is the interim leader of the Conservative Party until a leader is chosen later on this year.

Keep on truckin’

I received an email from an old friend in Canada who wrote about the trucking protests. You will see why I had to leave the country since every one of my old mates thinks the same way.

The problem with the truckers is not so much as they are anti-vaxx but that a whole group has grown up around them: from right wing to Nazis to who-ever…they danced on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, parked on the  grounds around the War Memorial and desecrated the Terry Fox Statute.  90% of all truckers have been vaccinated which means these are not you  typical  “freedom fighters” but a very small vocal minority. They also close the Alberta/Montana border yesterday. There is very little sympathy for them now.
They also got some $9,000,000.00 and god alone knows from where and who will get to spend it. I expect that they will be allowed to stay for about 8-10 days then they will be removed. Except for our soon to be ex leader of the Opposition – O’Toole, no other political leader has addressed them.
We are still nice…no riot…but it will  get dirty soon enough…federal politics  seems to be moving into a far right Conservative Party that cannot be elected. The Conservative Party has a vocal base  but that base has little to “sell” the middle/majority of voters…their leader recall is not helping them….more Trudeau into the immediate future…perhaps you can sponsor me if I decide to move to Australia.

Every one of these statements is a media distortion that even all this way away, I have seen where these lies have arisen from and what the truth actually is. Whenever I am home in The Dominion, I never ever talk politics with anyone. What, never? Well, hardly ever. But it is pointless. Still the truckers are redeeming my Canadian identity, bless them.

Why are we taking medical advice from Daniel Andrews and Anthony Fauci?

From a comments thread at Instapundit.

Of course you wouldn’t want to doubt the vaccines. Correlation is NOT causation, but it is a necessary, but not sufficient condition for causation. If the vaccines work, then high vaccination rates MUST be correlated w/ lower death rates ABSENT a confounding variable. Of course, the mere fact that confounding variables exist would minimize the significance of vaccination. My point here is why has everyone forgotten basic math & logic in order to “save” vaccines from the obvious conclusion: they don’t work? In any one circumstance, we’d declare vaccines a failure & move on. The difference, I think, is that people are just too invested in vaccines to admit they’re wrong. Heck, if they’re wrong about this, what else are they wrong about? And, more importantly, what else can save them from COVID & COVID hysteria? If you really really want something to be true, you’ll find a way to convince yourself that it’s true, but – if you’re honest – you’ll know it’s a lie. Vaccines have failed by every reasonable measure. We’re left with anecdotes &, of course, the untestable hypotheses (it would have been worse? How do you prove that?)

I believe you’re comment on being ‘too invested’ is the answer for all the covid policies/procedures etc. The politicians are too invested in lockdowns and masks to admit they were wrong. The pharma’s are too invested (literally) to admit the vaccines are just upgunned flu season type shots (at best). The medical community is too invested to admit there apparently is no actual treatment, as of yet, to cure this virus and basically once you have it you have to let it take its course. etc etc

What’s most amazing to me is that it’s common knowledge that if you are “fully vaccinated” you can still get and spread covid. Just like those who are completely unvaccinated and have never had covid. But those people who are unvaccinated but have had covid, lost their sense of taste and smell etc., are actually the ones who are most likely to be the way forward and yet they aren’t even considered. Such a person can tell their doctor this, and he’ll say “But have you got the vaccine shots yet?” Um, doc, why would I do that. I have natural immunity? “But have you got the vaccine shots yet?” It’s like there’s an alternate reality the Branch Covidians inhabit.

Company is pushing us to get booster shots but I had Omicron. Seems like people who had COVID and got the vaccine caught COVID again and some of them had it worse than before the jab. The “vaccines” seem to mess with your immune system and your immunity. I have immunity and worried the booster will actually lessen it. I’d rather skip the shot and potential side effects. Isn’t that the healthiest option? Not that anyone wants common sense anymore.

The data is suspect. Sorry, not sure I believe it. I know too many people vaccinated who ended up in the hospital anyway. I watched literally everyone catch Omicron in the North Dallas area regardless of vaccination status. Some got hospitalized, even being less severe, some did not. My sister has been having heart problems since getting her 2nd jab. Her lips are perpetually blue like she is not getting enough oxygen. She is not even 50 yet. The vaccines are doing more harm than good and seem to be killing people in their 20’s. Ok, the last point I haven’t seen in my circles and in fact I know few outside of my sister that seem to be having long term lasting effects from the vaccine. At the same time they don’t seem to be doing a thing while representing serious harm. It’s Russian Roulette with medicine to protect us from a virus that is highly survivable. If we were pushing HCQ and Ivermectin (I took Ivermectin doing my run) we may well have seen better results without the health issues the vaccines have introduced. What I keep being told is “trust the data” while one set of data says one thing and another set of data has obviously been collected in such a way to get a result (Death FROM vs. WITH COVID) and I work with data in my job. What they’ve done is created skepticism and doubt while causing very real harm.
