    Most here have probably heard/seen/read about digital passports.
    Many probably think/thought they were just more fear mongering,
    posited by 'crazy conspiracy theorists'.

    Well the slippery slope towards full digital passports has begun!

    There are probably dozens of countries that have set in motion this Orwellian
    nightmare of control already.
    I am aware of two myself; Canada and Dominican Republic.

    Both countries have started programs whereby visitors can not enter their country
    unless they possess a smartphone with a specific app.

    The countries are giving very little leeway to those poor souls that don't have smart phones.

    We must draw the line and say no to this! Because if we don't full digital passports containing all our bio-medical/vaccine/financial data will be sure to follow shortly.


    Canada:

    https://www.canada.ca/en/public-heal...arrivecan.html

    Requirements for entering Canada by air

    “As of November 21, 2020, if you’re flying to Canada as your final destination, you MUST use ArriveCAN to submit your:

    – travel and contact information
    – quarantine plan (unless exempted under conditions set out in the mandatory isolation order)
    – COVID-19 symptom self-assessments

    You must use ArriveCAN before you board your flight to Canada. ”


    Dominican Republic:

    https://eticket.migracion.gob.do/?fb...LMkOYAWYBesxvM

    “Welcome to the Electronic Ticket portal for entering and leaving the Dominican Republic

    WHAT IS THE ELECTRONIC TICKET ?

    It is a digital form required by multiple institutions for entering or leaving the national territory.

    It is MANDATORY for each passenger to truthfully complete the information on the electronic Ticket for the General Immigration Office, the General Customs Office and the Ministry of Public Health, according to dominican laws 285-04, 115-17, 72-02 and 226-06. ”

    “Pandemic is Over” – Former Pfizer Chief Science Officer Says “Second Wave” Faked On False-Positive COVID Tests
    November 23, 2020
    https://vaccineimpact.com/2020/pande...e-covid-tests/



    by Tyler Durden
    ZeroHedge News

    "This video provides one of the most erudite and informative looks at Covid-19 and the consequences of lockdowns. As AIER notes, it was remarkable this week to watch as it appeared on YouTube and was forcibly taken down only 2 hours after posting.

    (There are several copies on Bitchute, and we have included one below.)

    In a year of fantastic educational content, this is one of the best we’ve seen.

    Consider the presenter’s bio:

    Dr. Michael Yeadon is an Allergy & Respiratory Therapeutic Area expert with 23 years in the pharmaceutical industry. He trained as a biochemist and pharmacologist, obtaining his PhD from the University of Surrey (UK) in 1988.

    Dr. Yeadon then worked at the Wellcome Research Labs with Salvador Moncada with a research focus on airway hyper-responsiveness and effects of pollutants including ozone and working in drug discovery of 5-LO, COX, PAF, NO and lung inflammation. With colleagues, he was the first to detect exhaled NO in animals and later to induce NOS in lung via allergic triggers.

    Joining Pfizer in 1995, he was responsible for the growth and portfolio delivery of the Allergy & Respiratory pipeline within the company. He was responsible for target selection and the progress into humans of new molecules, leading teams of up to 200 staff across all disciplines and won an Achievement Award for productivity in 2008.

    Under his leadership the research unit invented oral and inhaled NCEs which delivered multiple positive clinical proofs of concept in asthma, allergic rhinitis and COPD. He led productive collaborations such as with Rigel Pharmaceuticals (SYK inhibitors) and was involved in the licensing of Spiriva and acquisition of the Meridica (inhaler device) company.

    Dr. Yeadon has published over 40 original research articles and now consults and partners with a number of biotechnology companies. Before working with Apellis, Dr. Yeadon was VP and Chief Scientific Officer (Allergy & Respiratory Research) with Pfizer.

    What likely triggered the Silicon Valley censor-mongers is the fact that a former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer says “there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.” The “Big Pharma” insider asserts that false positive results from inherently unreliable COVID tests are being used to manufacture a “second wave” based on “new cases.”

    As Ralph Lopez write at HubPages, Yeadon warns that half or even “almost all” of tests for COVID are false positives. Dr. Yeadon also argues that the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and may have been reached in many countries already.

    In an interview last week (see below) Dr. Yeadon was asked:

    “we are basing a government policy, an economic policy, a civil liberties policy, in terms of limiting people to six people in a meeting…all based on, what may well be, completely fake data on this coronavirus?”

    Dr. Yeadon answered with a simple “yes.”

    Even more significantly, even if all positives were to be correct, Dr. Yeadon said that given the “shape” of all important indicators in a worldwide pandemic, such as hospitalizations, ICU utilization, and deaths, “the pandemic is fundamentally over.”

    Yeadon said in the interview:

    “Were it not for the test data that you get from the TV all the time, you would rightly conclude that the pandemic was over, as nothing much has happened. Of course people go to the hospital, moving into the autumn flu season…but there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.”

    In a paper published this month, which was co-authored by Yeadon and two of his colleagues, “How Likely is a Second Wave?”, the scientists write:

    “It has widely been observed that in all heavily infected countries in Europe and several of the US states likewise, that the shape of the daily deaths vs. time curves is similar to ours in the UK. Many of these curves are not just similar, but almost super imposable.“

    In the data for UK, Sweden, the US, and the world, it can be seen that in all cases, deaths were on the rise in March through mid or late April, then began tapering off in a smooth slope which flattened around the end of June and continues to today. The case rates however, based on testing, rise and swing upwards and downwards wildly.

    Media messaging in the US is already ramping up expectations of a “second wave.”

    The survival rate of COVID-19 has been upgraded since May to 99.8% of infections. This comes close to ordinary flu, the survival rate of which is 99.9%. Although COVID can have serious after-effects, so can flu or any respiratory illness. The present survival rate is far higher than initial grim guesses in March and April, cited by Dr. Anthony Fauci, of 94%, or 20 to 30 times deadlier. The Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) value accepted by Yeadon et al in the paper is .26%. The survival rate of a disease is 100% minus the IFR.

    Dr. Yeadon pointed out that the “novel” COVID-19 contagion is novel only in the sense that it is a new type of coronavirus. But, he said, there are presently four strains which circulate freely throughout the population, most often linked to the common cold.

    In the scientific paper, Yeadon et al write:

    “There are at least four well characterised family members (229E, NL63, OC43 and HKU1) which are endemic and cause some of the common colds we experience, especially in winter. They all have striking sequence similarity to the new coronavirus.”

    The scientists argue that much of the population already has, if not antibodies to COVID, some level of “T-cell” immunity from exposure to other related coronaviruses, which have been circulating long before COVID-19.

    The scientists write:

    “A major component our immune systems is the group of white blood cells called T-cells whose job it is to memorise a short piece of whatever virus we were infected with so the right cell types can multiply rapidly and protect us if we get a related infection. Responses to COVID-19 have been shown in dozens of blood samples taken from donors before the new virus arrived.”

    Introducing the idea that some prior immunity to COVID-19 already existed, the authors of “How Likely is a Second Wave?” write:

    “It is now established that at least 30% of our population already had immunological recognition of this new virus, before it even arrived…COVID-19 is new, but coronaviruses are not.”

    They go on to say that, because of this prior resistance, only 15-25% of a population being infected may be sufficient to reach herd immunity:

    “…epidemiological studies show that, with the extent of prior immunity that we can now reasonably assume to be the case, only 15-25% of the population being infected is sufficient to bring the spread of the virus to a halt…”

    In the US, accepting a death toll of 200,000, and a survival rate of 99.8%, this would mean for every person who has died, there would be about 400 people who had been infected, and lived. This would translate to around 80 million Americans, or 27% of the population. This touches Yeadon’s and his colleagues’ threshold for herd immunity.



    Finally, the former Pfizer executive and scientist singles out one former colleague for withering rebuke for his role in the pandemic, Professor Neil Ferguson. Ferguson taught at Imperial College while Yeadon was affiliated.

    Ferguson’s computer model provided the rationale for governments to launch draconian orders which turned free societies into virtual prisons overnight. Over what is now estimated by the CDC to be a 99.8% survival rate virus.

    Dr. Yeadon said in the interview that “no serious scientist gives any validity” to Ferguson’s model.

    Speaking with thinly-veiled contempt for Ferguson, Dr. Yeadon took special pains to point out to his interviewer:

    “It’s important that you know most scientists don’t accept that it [Ferguson’s model] was even faintly right…but the government is still wedded to the model.”

    Yeadon joins other scientists in castigating governments for following Ferguson’s model, the assumptions of which all worldwide lockdowns are based on. One of these scientists is Dr. Johan Giesecke, former chief scientist for the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention, who called Ferguson’s model “the most influential scientific paper” in memory, and also “one of the most wrong.”

    It was Ferguson’s model which held that “mitigation” measures were necessary, i.e. social distancing and business closures, in order to prevent, for example, over 2.2 million people dying from COVID in the US.

    Ferguson predicted that Sweden would pay a terrible price for no lockdown, with 40,000 COVID deaths by May 1, and 100,000 by June. Sweden’s death count is under 6,000.

    The Swedish government says this coincides to a mild flu season. Although initially higher, Sweden now has a lower death rate per-capita than the US, which it achieved without the terrific economic damage still ongoing in the US. Sweden never closed restaurants, bars, sports, most schools, or movie theaters. The government never ordered people to wear masks.

    Dr. Yeadon speaks bitterly of the lives lost as a result of lockdown policies, and of the “savable” countless lives which will be further lost, from important surgeries and other healthcare deferred, should lockdowns be reimposed.

    Watch the full discussion below:
    (This is the video I found on youtube, but if it's censored, it should be on bitchute. I've asked the Mods to embed that one too..)


    Yeadon’s warnings are confirmed by a new study from the Infectious Diseases Society of America., summarized succinctly in the following twitter thread from al gato malo (@boriquagato)

    Anyone still presuming that a Positive PCR test is showing a COVID case needs to read this very carefully:
    even 25 cycles of amplification, 70% of “positives” are not “cases.” virus cannot be cultured. it’s dead.
    by 35: 97% non-clinical.
    the US runs at 40, 32X the amplification of 35.



    a lot of people still seem to not understand what this means, so let’s lay that out for a minute.

    PCR tests look for RNA. there is too little in your swab. so they amplify it using a primer based heating and annealing process.

    Each cycle of this process doubles the material



    the US (and much of the world) is using a 40 Ct (cycle threshold). so, 40 doublings, 1 trillion X amplification.

    This is absurdly high.

    The way that we know this is by running this test, seeing the Ct to find the RNA, and then using the same sample to try to culture virus.

    If you cannot culture the virus, then the virus is “dead.” it’s inert. if it cannot replicate, it cannot infect you or others. it’s just traces of virus, remnants, fragments etc

    PCR is not testing for disease, it’s testing for a specific RNA pattern and this is the key pivot

    When you crank it up to 25, 70% of the positive results are not really “positives” in any clinical sense.

    i hesitate to call it a “false positive” because it’s really not. it did find RNA.

    but that RNA is not clinically relevant.

    It cannot make you or anyone else sick

    so let’s call this a non-clinical positive (NCP).

    if 70% of positives are NCP’s at 25, imagine what 40 looks like. 35 is 1000X as sensitive.
    this study found only 3% live at 35
    40 Ct is 32X 35, 32,000X 25
    no one can culture live virus past about 34 and we have known this since march. yet no one has adjusted these testsThis is more very strong data refuting the idea that you can trust a PCR+ as a clinical indicator.

    That is NOT what it’s meant for. at all.

    Using them to do real time epidemiology is absurd.



    The FDA would never do it, the drug companies doing vaccine trials would never do it… it’s because it’s nonsense.

    And this same test is used for “hospitalizations” and “death with covid” (itself a weirdly over inclusive metric)

    PCR testing is not the answer, it’s the problem.

    It’s not how to get control of an epidemic, it’s how to completely lose control of your data picture and wind up with gibberish and we have done this to ourselves before.

    A quick word what this data does and does not mean.
    Saying “a sample requiring 35 Ct to test + has a 3% real clinical positive rate” does not mean “97% of + tests run at 35 Ct are NCP’s”

    People seem to get confused on this, so lets explain:

    Most tests are just amplified and run. they don’t test every cycle as these academics do. that would make the test slow and expensive, so you just run 40 cycles then test.

    Obviously, a real clinical positive (RCP) that would have been + at 20 is still + at 40.

    but when you run the tests each cycle as the academics do, that test would already have dropped out.

    so saying that only 3% at 35 are RCP really means that 3% of those samples not PCR + at 34 were PCR and RCP + at 35.

    this lets us infer little about overall NCP/RCP rate.

    so we cannot say “at 25 Ct, we have a 70 NCP rate.” in fact, it’s hard to say much of anything. it depends entirely on what the source material coming in looks like.

    you cannot even compare like to like.

    This is what i mean by “the data is gibberish”

    Today at 40 Ct, 7% PCR positive rate could be 1% RCP prevalence when that same thing meant 6% RCP prev in april.

    If there is lots more trace virus around, more people who have recovered and have fragments left over, etc this test could be finding virus you killed 4 months ago.

    So if we consider RCP rate/PCR+ rate, we would expect that number to drop sharply late in an epidemic because there is more dead virus around for PCR to find, but we have no idea what that ratio is or how it changes.

    This spills over in to deaths, reported hospitalization etc.

    Testing is being made out to be like the high beams on a car, but when it’s snowing like hell at night, that is the LAST thing you want. It is not illuminating our way, it’s blinding us.

    A bad inaccurate map is much worse than no map at all, and this is a world class bad map…



    We’re basing policy that is affecting billions of humans on data that is uninterpretable gibberish.

    It’s a deranged technocrat’s wet dream, but for those of us along for the ride, it’s a nightmare.

    Testing is not the solution, it’s the problem.

    Any technocrat or scientist that does not know this by now is either unfit for their job or has decided that they just don’t care and prefer power to morality.

    This is, of curse, precisely the kind of person who winds up running a gov’t agency… oopsie.

    The head of the NIH is not the best scientist, it’s the best politician.

    All this wild and reckless government policy has never been about the science.

    It’s politics and panic."

    Ben Swann Interviews RFK, Jr. on What We Know — and Don’t Know — About COVID Vaccine Safety
    Kennedy addresses the COVID vaccine efficacy rates being touted by Pfizer and Moderna, the lack of publicly available safety data on either vaccine, flu vaccines and more.

    "Investigative journalist Ben Swann last weekthis week interviewed Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. chairman of Children’s Health Defense, and others on RT’s No Bulls**t Coronavirus Podcast.

    Swann and his guests, which included among others Paul Hunter, professor at the Norwich School of Medicine, Jeffrey Tucker, editorial director of the American Institute for Economic Research and Dmitry Kulish of SKoltech, environmentalist, writer, philanthropist and professor at Skoltech, covered a number of COVID-related topics, ranging from masks, lockdowns and vaccine safety.

    During his portion of the interview (beginning at 1:20:02), Kennedy focused on what we know — and don’t know — about vaccine safety in general, and COVID vaccine safety, specifically.

    Kennedy addressed the COVID vaccine efficacy rates being touted by Pfizer and Moderna, the lack of publicly available safety data on either vaccine, flu vaccines and more.

    On what we know so far about the leading COVID vaccines, Kennedy said:

    “How long does the immunity last? Is there immunity enhancement, in other words is there a significant percentage of people who are going to get the vaccine and actually get sicker than they would from COVID, which is what they’ve seen in the past? And then there’s the question of side effects. So the Moderna vaccine, 100% of the people had some side effects, many of them mild … 20% of the high-dose test subjects had serious side effects … What we have to ask ourselves, is it better to get COVID, at least for most age groups, then it is to get the vaccine?”

    Covid-19: politicisation, “corruption,” and suppression of science
    11/13/20
    https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj....campaign=usage

    "When good science is suppressed by the medical-political complex, people die

    Politicians and governments are suppressing science. They do so in the public interest, they say, to accelerate availability of diagnostics and treatments. They do so to support innovation, to bring products to market at unprecedented speed. Both of these reasons are partly plausible; the greatest deceptions are founded in a grain of truth. But the underlying behaviour is troubling.

    Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health.1 Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency—a time when it is even more important to safeguard science.

    The UK’s pandemic response provides at least four examples of suppression of science or scientists. First, the membership, research, and deliberations of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) were initially secret until a press leak forced transparency.2 The leak revealed inappropriate involvement of government advisers in SAGE, while exposing under-representation from public health, clinical care, women, and ethnic minorities. Indeed, the government was also recently ordered to release a 2016 report on deficiencies in pandemic preparedness, Operation Cygnus, following a verdict from the Information Commissioner’s Office.34

    Next, a Public Health England report on covid-19 and inequalities. The report’s publication was delayed by England’s Department of Health; a section on ethnic minorities was initially withheld and then, following a public outcry, was published as part of a follow-up report.56 Authors from Public Health England were instructed not to talk to the media. Third, on 15 October, the editor of the Lancet complained that an author of a research paper, a UK government scientist, was blocked by the government from speaking to media because of a “difficult political landscape.”7

    Now, a new example concerns the controversy over point-of-care antibody testing for covid-19.8 The prime minister’s Operation Moonshot depends on immediate and wide availability of accurate rapid diagnostic tests.9 It also depends on the questionable logic of mass screening—currently being trialled in Liverpool with a suboptimal PCR test.1011

    The incident relates to research published this week by The BMJ, which finds that the government procured an antibody test that in real world tests falls well short of performance claims made by its manufacturers.1213 Researchers from Public Health England and collaborating institutions sensibly pushed to publish their study findings before the government committed to buying a million of these tests but were blocked by the health department and the prime minister’s office.14 Why was it important to procure this product without due scrutiny? Prior publication of research on a preprint server or a government website is compatible with The BMJ’s publication policy. As if to prove a point, Public Health England then unsuccessfully attempted to block The BMJ’s press release about the research paper.

    Politicians often claim to follow the science, but that is a misleading oversimplification. Science is rarely absolute. It rarely applies to every setting or every population. It doesn’t make sense to slavishly follow science or evidence. A better approach is for politicians, the publicly appointed decision makers, to be informed and guided by science when they decide policy for their public. But even that approach retains public and professional trust only if science is available for scrutiny and free of political interference, and if the system is transparent and not compromised by conflicts of interest.

    Suppression of science and scientists is not new or a peculiarly British phenomenon. In the US, President Trump’s government manipulated the Food and Drug Administration to hastily approve unproved drugs such as hydroxychloroquine and remdesivir.15 Globally, people, policies, and procurement are being corrupted by political and commercial agendas.16

    The UK’s pandemic response relies too heavily on scientists and other government appointees with worrying competing interests, including shareholdings in companies that manufacture covid-19 diagnostic tests, treatments, and vaccines.17 Government appointees are able to ignore or cherry pick science—another form of misuse—and indulge in anti-competitive practices that favour their own products and those of friends and associates.18

    How might science be safeguarded in these exceptional times? The first step is full disclosure of competing interests from government, politicians, scientific advisers, and appointees, such as the heads of test and trace, diagnostic test procurement, and vaccine delivery. The next step is full transparency about decision making systems, processes, and knowing who is accountable for what.

    Once transparency and accountability are established as norms, individuals employed by government should ideally only work in areas unrelated to their competing interests. Expertise is possible without competing interests. If such a strict rule becomes impractical, minimum good practice is that people with competing interests must not be involved in decisions on products and policies in which they have a financial interest.

    Governments and industry must also stop announcing critical science policy by press release. Such ill judged moves leave science, the media, and stock markets vulnerable to manipulation. Clear, open, and advance publication of the scientific basis for policy, procurements, and wonder drugs is a fundamental requirement.19

    The stakes are high for politicians, scientific advisers, and government appointees. Their careers and bank balances may hinge on the decisions that they make. But they have a higher responsibility and duty to the public. Science is a public good. It doesn’t need to be followed blindly, but it does need to be fairly considered. Importantly, suppressing science, whether by delaying publication, cherry picking favourable research, or gagging scientists, is a danger to public health, causing deaths by exposing people to unsafe or ineffective interventions and preventing them from benefiting from better ones. When entangled with commercial decisions it is also maladministration of taxpayers’ money.

    Politicisation of science was enthusiastically deployed by some of history’s worst autocrats and dictators, and it is now regrettably commonplace in democracies.20 The medical-political complex tends towards suppression of science to aggrandise and enrich those in power. And, as the powerful become more successful, richer, and further intoxicated with power, the inconvenient truths of science are suppressed. When good science is suppressed, people die."

    Given new data we must downgrade the severity of this pandemic
    November 20, 2020, 11:24 PM IST Sanjeev Sabhlok in Seeing the Invisible | Economy, India, politics | TOI

    COVID-19 data on Worldometers is not reliable. There are issues with the reported cases (an 11 November 2020 Portuguese court judgement highlighted the flaws of PCR tests) and there are serious issues with the way COVID-19 deaths are reported.

    Statisticians will need to thoroughly cross-check this data. One way to do so is to look for the signal of the pandemic in total annual deaths. Around 60 million people die globally each year. Let’s say that in early 2021 we find that 62 million died in 2020: then we could say that the pandemic killed 2 million people.

    Initially, no one knew about the magnitude of the risk posed by this virus but by mid-April 2020 anyone with rudimentary arithmetic skills would have known that the models had exaggerated their projections. I therefore downgraded my estimates on 30 May 2020 and wrote: “this virus is … definitely not like the Spanish flu in its lethality. It is better compared with the Asian flu of 1957-58 or the Hong Kong flu of 1968-1970, both of which were around 20 times less lethal than the Spanish flu”.

    In the meanwhile, India’s extraordinarily low death rate from COVID-19 was a mystery, so on 27 July 2020, I suggested that this could be because of cross-reactivity. Trained immunity from BCG vaccines is also a possible factor and also the use of HCQ as a prophylactic.

    But as we are getting closer to the end of 2020, we can start estimating the annual deaths of nations and try to work out the real impact of this virus.

    Sweden’s official agency recently updated its deaths data till 13 November 2020, using which I have estimated that Sweden will likely report around 94,600 annual deaths in 2020. This can be compared with 92,185 deaths in 2018 (I’m excluding 2019 which had a very mild flu season across Europe – it is therefore not a typical year). This shows Sweden will have had just 2,400 additional deaths in 2020, an astonishingly small number after the song, dance and drama of 2020.

    Sweden has had 6,340 reported COVID deaths to date. With only around 2,400 additional overall (estimated) deaths, where did almost 4,000 “COVID” deaths go? Some them might have been misclassified due to data deficiencies but most would be those who would have died during 2020 of some other cause. That is why we typically see a sharp drop in deaths after the peak of a pandemic (for instance – 224 fewer Swedes died in September 2020 compared with September 2018 because many elderly Swedes died in March and April, instead).

    This real (but currently an estimated) impact of only 2,400 additional deaths by COVID in Sweden can be compared with the hysterical estimates of 10 May 2020 when Dagens Nyheter (a Swedish newspaper) reported about a study which said: “Our model predicts that … at least 96,000 deaths would occur by 1 July without mitigation”.

    There is obviously a huge difference between 100,000 additional annual deaths (double Sweden’s annual deaths) and only 2,400 or 2.6% additional annual deaths. This data – which we can now start calculating for all nations – gives us a sense of the true magnitude of the severity of this pandemic.

    Based on this analysis, we can safely conclude that this pandemic’s lethality is far less than was imagined even a few months ago. Initial data from European nations and the USA is also suggesting a small likely net increase in annual deaths. While we might we have 1.5 million reported COVID deaths by end-2020, the actual increase in global annual deaths is likely to be much smaller (noting also that many of the final annual deaths would be those caused by the lockdowns).

    India’s death rates are already quite small, with just over 5 days of additional annual deaths attributed to COVID to date (i.e. 1.4% of likely additional annual deaths) but I expect the true net increase in annual deaths to be smaller.

    The need to significantly downgrade the pandemic based on this analysis is particularly urgent since most of the world is still hysterical. For instance, Dr Brett Sutton, Victorian Chief Health Officer said on 12 July 2020 that this pandemic is the “greatest public health challenge since the Spanish flu”. On 3 November 2020, he tweeted: “Why is getting to very low/no cases and keeping them there so important? If you don’t crush this virus, it could crush you”. This hysteria was behind the world’s most severe lockdowns and curfews imposed in Melbourne for months on end: I’ve gone through hell over the past year, with significant health effects.

    Australia’s situation has been so bad that I had to resign on 9 September 2020 from my job as an economist in the Victorian Government to protest the Police State created by atrocities on citizens in the name of public health. My resignation was reported in Australian and UK newspapers. In my TV and media interviews, I outlined the age-based risk-management approach (without any lockdowns, of course) that I have advocated since 6 March 2020.

    I followed up my resignation with a book: The Great Hysteria and The Broken State. But that didn’t help: till today, Australia’s governments have not changed their policy and remain as hysterical as before. On 13 November 2020, I lodged a 68,000-word complaint with the International Criminal Court against the ongoing atrocities being committed by Australia’s governments against their citizens.

    They are committing atrocities not just against their own citizens. Indian students who took loans to study in Australia have written to me about the inhumane treatment they are receiving from the Australian Government. In many cases families have been separated for nine months – and there is no end in sight. One lady wrote to me: “I just came to my country [India] for only 23 days. Now stuck here for 9 months. I separated from my husband whom I never separated the last 10 years. I am dying every day.” There are also instances, reportedly, where mother and child have been separated.

    This mayhem and carnage – caused by border closures, lockdowns and curfews – can barely be imagined. And it has not ended. There is severe madness in the air. Even India remains half-hysterical as I gather from my conversations with people over the phone.

    The world must bring this panic to an end by rationally examining the data which is telling us that this pandemic is just a little bit worse than the bad flu. We’ll get to know more by February 2021 but even now there is enough information to immediately de-escalate and stop the panic.

    And we need to return to full normalcy by adopting appropriate age-based risk management approaches that I’ve outlined repeatedly.

    The reason for Qantas Airlines new vaccine policy?
    Posted on Facebook in the "Restore Liability for the Vaccine Makers" FB Group. No sources were given, but I think it probably all adds up.

    "Surprise, surprise. Oh how the plot thickens. Follow along now boys and girls😁

    Qantas airlines was privatized in March 1993

    British airways buys a majority stake of Qantas airways, 25% at the time worth 665 million.

    British airways is owned by International Airlines group

    International Airlines Group is one of the largest in the world, it has 598 air craft and carries 118 million people anually

    Qatar Airways owns International Airlines Group

    After purchasing an additional $600 million in shares, in February 2020, ( coincidence🤔🤔🤔 I think not) the Qatari Government is now 50% share holder of Qatar Airways.

    Qatar is off the coast of Saudi Arabia and is the richest nation in the world, or it was

    Qatar is governed by the Emir

    The Emir are the ruling class, long family histories of leaderships and extreme wealth.

    The government is a de facto " Absolute Monarchy"

    Absolute Monarchy - holds a supreme autocratic authority over its people. They are not restricted or bound by conventional authority. They are not bound by written law, legislation or customs. They pretty much do what ever they want and they have the money to do it. Their wealth originates from oil production and sales

    Qatar Investment Authority, takes stake in Vaccine manufacturer Cure Vac. CureVac is making a covid vaccine

    Cure vac is designing the mrna covid 19 vaccine that will change our genetic make up turning us all into genetically modified organisms. Aka GMO BEINGS, no longer human beings.

    Bill Gates is primary stake holder and investor in CureVac.😮😮😮
    Gates is Friends with Tamin Bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar.

    Its amazing what a little resesrch will reveal.

    Now going full circle do you see and understand why Qantas will require vaccines??? There is a much larger picture. You must ask questions. You must ask why things are the way they are. You can not just blindly follow along."

    ***************************

    Also from the FB group "Restore Liability for the Vaccine Makers:

    "‎Guy Crittenden‎ to Restore Liability For The Vaccine Makers

    NOTE: This short excerpt from a speech delivered by American researcher Alison McDowell offers the best and most succinct summation of what's being imposed on humanity at this time by international agencies led by such people as Klaus Schwab (World Economic Forum) and Bill Gates (Bill & Melinda gates Foundation). The concepts of the IoT and 4IR will sound very strange to newbies; my hope is that this article gives people sufficient breadcrumbs to research these matters on their own and learn what the globalist oligarchy has planned for us. Even setting aside the depopulation agenda, this is a transhumanist plan for the enslavement of most people in an AI controlled technocracy of which China's system of 600 million facial recognition cameras, algorithms and social credit scores is a good example. Please share. (More of Alison McDowell's work can be found at her blog A Wrench in the Gears. Note also that JP Collins and his partner Julie at Book of Ours [YouTube] do a great job deconstructing and explaining McDowell's work in their video essays, such as the segment Lifelong Learning. Be sure to check it out!)

    Understanding The Fourth Industrial Revolution

    by Alison McDowell

    We are called to act or face a future of digital chattel slavery, our freedoms stolen by automation, artificial intelligence, ubiquitous surveillance, and synthetic biology. Track and trace apps will be replaced with injectable nano-robotic biosensors. Look to Profusa’s collaboration with DARPA and Moderna’s “software of life.”

    Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum along with Gates and Bloomberg would disconnect humans from Mother Earth and plug us into an Internet of Bodies under their control. They would render us digitally, feed us into markets, trade us as data commodities, and harness our spirits to hasten the Singularity. Once our jobs are given to robots and algorithms we will be expected to embrace transhumanism to fuel their anti-life Matrix.

    Eric Schmidt advances a reimagined education program where artificial intelligence feedback loops will condition children to think virtual is normal. That is why I am here today on behalf of the mothers to say we refuse this insidious programming. We will not fit our magnificent life force or that of our children into the technocrats’ puny vision of a heartless industrially engineered “sustainable” world. We do not consent!
    Why would those in power do such a thing you ask?

    Perhaps they actually believe they’re saving the planet or solving poverty. They ARE remaking the global economic system to function in a world of finite resources. But rather than pursuing de-growth, reciprocity, and right relationships they’ve chosen to build a militarized simulation. In this illusion, humans, as avatars, can continue to consume unlimited virtual items and generate vast quantities of data until we kill the planet.
    Capitalism is shifting to the virtual realm, a move that allows the ruling class to further concentrate their wealth and power. Through gamification and augmented reality, stakeholder capitalists aim to reengineer life so it can continue to serve the interests of consumer culture and debt finance. Digital twinning will emerge in a few more years once 6G replaces 5G. NYU Tandon is working on that now.

    Social impact investing, pay for success finance, and development impact bonds are aligned to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Fourteen of the seventeen relate to vaccination, a central feature of the cybernetic program.

    Biometric passports will set up digital identities to aggregate the data that will justify returns in human capital bond markets. “Smart” environments with sensors as small as dust will transmit information about our activities from the cellular level to our social relations in real time.

    In the decade leading up to the Covid reset, financiers designed markets in measurable behavior change. Silicon Valley refined technology to predict and track it. Universities provided equations that will underpin this twisted gambling program. The United Way set up a campaign for it – ALICE Assets Limited Income Constrained, Employed. Human capital futures markets will be fueled by misery, poverty and trauma, all of which are in abundant supply with these lockdowns.

    Ed-Tech / Teletherapy / Telemedicine / Smart Home Gadgets and Meters
    Digital Public Benefits Like Education Vouchers, Medicaid, and Food Assistance

    All of it used to calculate one’s perceived value or burden on society.

    Vaccine passports are meant to hold more than just health data. Eventually all that other information will be layered in, catalyzing commodities futures trading in life outcomes. 2,000 of the world’s largest asset holders, members of the Impact Management Project, are waiting with bated breath to run their capital through our bodies. Davos desperately needs widespread adoption of vaccine mandates. Without them Schwab’s vision for stakeholder capitalism and a financialized “green” totalitarian world cannot proceed. They need real time data, and they need for it to be interoperable. The health passports make that possible.
    IBM, Google, Amazon, and Goldman Sachs are among those who will be upset with Governor Cuomo if we stop this program, which is exactly why we must. I’m here to stand against what is patently an anti-life agenda.

    We must mend our relationships to the earth and one another, but we should honor the practice of Indigenous peoples, especially here on the lands of the Iroquois Confederacy. Let us awake from this distorted dream and begin to walk the difficult but necessary path towards healing, joy, and abundance in a very beautiful, very real world given to us by the Creator."
