Lockdown Regime Responsible For Thousands Of Deaths

The Lockdown which, based on scientific advice that was always suspect but is now known to have been profoundly flawed, was announced by  the UK government on March 23rd and passed into Law on March 25th, was widely predicted by people sceptical of they type of science based on output from mathematical models rather than empirical evidence,  appears to have led to the premature deaths of tens of thousands of people in the UK according to independent research.

It was always obvious that such an outcome was inevitable as Medical practices were forced to offer a very much reduced service, hospital appointments were can celled wholesale and people with very serious health problems were denied the support they needed.

We discussed all these consequences of following the advice of a self aggrandizing attention seeker months ago and you will find links to our posts on te various COVID – 19 related topics in the scrolling table at the end of this article, but to avoid looking as if we want to give the impression that we were the only ones who knew what was going on, here’s what ITT reported on the subject:  LOKIN-20 The Lockdown Regime Causes Increasing Health Concerns That post like some of ours discusses the likelihood that the Lockdown would cause significant excess mortality among people who were not infected with the Wuhan coronavirus.

The release of the latest report on non COVID 19 related deaths from the Office of National Statistics proves beyond doubt that the sceptics, those who doubted the word of government scientific advisers were right to do so, but what is truly astonishing is the scale of those deaths. Remember, the figures are not from some sensationalist tabloid newspaper but the UK Governments official statistics agency,

The ONS report reveals that between March 7th and May 1st (ONS Week 11 – 18 of year 2020) there were 46,380 excess death, over and above the statistical 5 year average, registered in England and Wales. Figures for Scotland and Northern Ireland are not included.

Of the 46,380 excess deaths 12,900 (27.8% of additional excess deaths) were not attributable to COVID 19. This suggests that 33,480 (72.2% of additional excess deaths) were attributable to COVID 19.

However, as we reported in Coronavirus: Statistics and Lies it is by no means clear how many of those deaths were as a direct or even indirect result of COVID 19 and in how many cases the deceased had merely been in contact with the virus but not affected by it. The UK Government’s administrative wing (the civil service) has dismantled the robust, almost foolproof method of recording deaths and created a system specifically for registering COVID 19 deaths which is so vague it even allows for a single death to be recorded several times, and is wide open to error and misinterpretation.

It is worth noting that senior civil servants have, since 2016, been determined to prevent the UK leaving the European Union (Brexit,) and have been involved in several plots to overturn the democratic vote.The pandemic presented them with a golden opportunity for mischief. We will of course never know what machinations have been going on under cover of the pandemic as politicians, corportate bosses, bureaucrats and meddlesome billionaires have sought to advance their own narrow interests.

All developed nations have their registration processes and data collection systems, tested over time and unually totally trustworthy but the situation in the UK resembled that in Italy where an unpopular government imposed by the EU bureaucracy after the elected government collapsed, used the pandemic to spread fear and panic and divert attention from internal political problems. The Italian government imposed their lockdown on March 9th. On March 20th, as assumed COVID 19 deaths piled up, Italy’s National Institute of Health (ISS) issued a report into the characteristics common to those dying from the disease.

Citing this report, which found no clear evidence that COVID 19 was the cause of death in 88% of deaths attributed to the virus, the chief scientific adviser to Italy’s health department, Professor Walter Ricciardi, said:

“The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus……On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus.”

No such admission has been made by the UK government as yet, but it is reasonable to assume similar misrepresentations of the facts have been used here, and probably in the USA and other countries reporting high kill rates for COVID – 19. The revised figure from Italy puts the kill rate for COVID – 19 in line with that reported by Germany where doctors flatly refused to register cause of derath as COVID – 19 Coronavirus, unless the deceased died prinicpally from the effects of Wuhan Coronavirus infection.

Sir Patrick Vallance, UK Chief Scientific Officer

All this should be considered in the light of the statement made by Professor Ricciardi’s UK counterpart. Speaking on April 16th the UK’s Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Patrick Vallance (above), said:

“It is worth remembering again that the ONS rates are people who’ve got COVID on their death certificates. It doesn’t mean they were necessarily infected because many of them haven’t been tested. So we just need to understand the difference.”

The UK, like Italy, instructed the its national statistics agency (ONS) to record any and all mentions of COVID 19 on the death certificate (MCCD) as COVID 19 mortality. Furthermore, the ONS were ordered to accept suggested COVID 19 mortality figures from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) even if COVID 19 was not mentioned on the MCCD.

This has left the collection and reporting of COVID 19 mortality in both Gr,eat Britain and Italy, the two nations with the highest death numbers in Europe in total disarray. Certainly the official reporting of the pandemic by the taxpayer funded BBC (often referred to as the government propaganda deprtment reporting of those statistics, which has overwhelmingly been in support of the lockdown regime, is as close to meaningless as it is possible to get without simply making up the numbers.

Between March 7th and May 1st figures from the Care Quality Comission (CQC) played no part in the ONS mortality analysis. The CQC didn’t start submitting their data to the ONS until April 29th. What is reported here serves to highlight how absurd the COVID 19 mortality statistics have become. And yet the future of our nations and our lives is being shaped by this absurdity.

Intelligent Virus? Anti-racism protests SAFE from Covid-19, but anti-lockdown protests are NOT, health ‘experts’ claim

How can the virus tell?! Anti-racism protests SAFE from Covid-19, but anti-lockdown protests are NOT, health ‘experts’ claim
Anti – racism protestors enjoy their immunity?

It must be well known to our readers that the collective opinion of contributors to this blog on “scientists” and “experts” is that they are all wankers. This does not include practicioners of the sciences who have the self awareness to describe themselves as chemists, biologists, physicists, medical doctors or some other recognised discipline, in which case we acknowledge their expertise in a specific feild of human endeavour. It’s the ubiquitous but non specific “scientists” or “experts” that pisses us of as if these vague generalisations confer infallibility on people who are often notyhing more than self aggrandizing oportunists who talk bollocks knowing it will be reported by mainstream media as if it is a divine revelation.

In perhaps the silliest example yet of the fallibility of these clowns, an open letter signed by hundreds of self-styled health ‘experts’ proposes the totally insane theory that “protests against systemic racism” are not only Covid-19 safe but “vital to the national public health” (apart from the health of people on either side who get injured or killed of course,) – while participation in protests against lockdowns carries a high risk, with infection and a slow, painful death almost guaranteed.

Calling “white supremacy” a “lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to Covid-19,” the letter – signed by upwards of 1,200 self-declared public health experts before it was closed to signatures on Tuesday, supposedly because “alt-right messages” had been added – trumpets the necessity of continuing the protests that began after a police officer killed George Floyd by kneeling with a knee planted on his neck while Mr. Floyd was taking part in an orderly and legal demonstration against the lockdowns in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which are bankruoting many small businesses in the USA and driving many poor families to destitution.

French National Security Warned Of ‘Catastrophic Leak’ From Wuhan Lab

from Zero Hedge

Eleven years before the joint construction of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, French intelligence services warned Paris that China’s reputation for poor bio-security could lead to a ‘catastrophic leak,’ according to The Daily Mail.


The Wuhan Institute of Virology. Picture: AFP

In 2004, the EU’s chief brexit negotiator, Michael Barnier, ignored those warnings – signing off on the lab’s construction when he was the French foreign minister.

According to the report, French intel also warned that Paris could lose control of the facility, and that Beijing could even use it to make biowarfare weapons. And in 2015, as the laboratory prepared to open, those concerns were realized after the French architects of the project said the CCP had shut them out. In fact, 50 French scientists were supposed to help the Chinese run the laboratory properly, but never ended up going.

The Mail discovered Barnier’s involvement in the Wuhan Institute of Virology during an in-depth investigation into French connections to the lab – where many believe the coronavirus escaped from, as the WIV housed a group of scientists who received international condemnation for creating chimeric strains that could infect humans. Under the ‘escaped’ scenario, an infected WIV employee unknowingly brought it into the Wuhan wet market, exposing what would become roughly half of the first known cluster of cases.

Biologists who carried out a landmark study say they were ‘surprised’ to find the virus was ‘already pre-adapted to human transmission’… Continue reading >>>

Scientists and Groups Ask Canadian Gov’t to Invest in Wired Technology and Suspend 5G Until Proven Safe

by B N Frank, Activist Post, 23 May 2020

Many cities and countries have already taken action against 5G deployment by banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 7. 8).  Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after it was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4).

Of course it’s not just 5G that is harmful.  All sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) is biologically and environmentally harmful.  This includes Bluetooth, cell phone and WiFi radiation.  Health experts have been warning about exposure risks for many years and continue to do so (see 1, 2).  This includes the World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics.  Even Dr. Oz has warned about exposure!

Kudos to these Canadians for appealing to their government to stop 5G deployment and invest in safer wired connections instead.

Determining the true fatality rate of Covid-19 vital, says another scientist with an infallible mathematical model

The objective of mathematical models of an epidemic is to predict the Infection Fatality Rate or IFR. Two extreme scenarios (and everything in between) fit the available data which as shown above is so incomplete as to be useless. In the one used by the Imperial College modellers, the fatality rate is in the benchmark of 1pc which would imply that the epidemic took off towards the end of February in the UK, and less than 10pc of the population had been exposed by time of lockdown.

In the other, the fatality rate could be as low as 0.01pc; this would require the virus to have been introduced about a month earlier and for over 50pc of individuals to be exposed by March 23.

These figures for the number of people exposed to the virius but not affected by it can only ever be pure guesswork of course. Most modellers have “fitted” their model to the , in plain English again, adjusted the algorithms to produce the answer whoever is funding the research requires from thevery limited data available on cases and deaths as reported. If fact one model used to formulate advice given to the UK government was, we are given to understan, from the Diamond Princess Cruise Liner. This corresponds to running a model of a national community based on a large number of people confined within a limited space which guarantees thel SIR model will produce an artificially high  a high fatality rate – or present governments with the worst case scenario on which to formulate policies.

But how plausible is a fatality rate of 1pc? First we must remind ourselves

The author is a “a professor of theoretical epidemiology”, in plain English another academic highly qualified in the science of making things up. How much money could we save as a nation if we just stoppeed funding these parasites and the universities that employ them. So what we are prsented with is another theoretical “scientist” who likes playing around with computers and statistics despite being spectacularly unqualified to do so. More garbage in in – garbage out conclusions.

A notable feature of this crisis has been the tendency of authority to obscure the figures to suit their purposes, both here and in the US. If the university brainwashed half – wits in government want to calculatethe likely death rate from COVID – 19 and the total all cause deasths related to the pandeimic, let them find and disclose the number of people who have died as a result of the first closure of the NHS in its history. It is likely to show that more have died of the response to the “crisis” or from causes not related to COVID – 19 after having been expose to this similar to seasonal ‘flu but not as bad Coronavirus variant.

Then we should take Novartis’s upper estimate for annual flu deaths of 22,000 and then add the above figure to that, and subtract that total from the total “excess deaths” figure to find the casualty figure for which the whole country of sixty seven million has been assaulted by idiots fooled by criminals. in the UK, the virus had two or three months to spread in the population before lockdown. And yet it managed to kill only 238 healthy people under 60 in England. For context 68,000 people died in 2018 anyway. That does not suggest that this is a particularly deadly disease for healthy people up to 60, and perhaps even for healthy people beyond that age.

Lockdown: How can anyone defend the “scientists.”

As we digested Boris Johnson’s address to the nation this morning, and the mainstream media propagandists fell over each other to praise the Prime Ministers cautious approach and adherence to the advice of “scientists,” my own reaction was FUCK YOU BORIS, I declare lockdown over for me and my publications and while being disabled I don’t get out much at the best of times, I and possibly my colleagues will be arguing for a campaign of civil disobedience to prove the idiotic bletherings of “scientists” with their mathematical models of the real world have done more harm than good.

Which epidemiologist do you believe?

The debate about lockdown is not a contest between good and evil
by Freddie Sayers, Unherd

The past week has been a tale of two epidemiologists. First up was Swedish professor Johan Giesecke, whose interview with UnHerd a week ago caused quite a stir. Disarmingly blunt, uninterested in percentage points, Giesecke brushed aside the coronavirus pandemic with words that electrified sceptics and horrified his detractors. “I don’t think you can stop it,” he said, “it’s like a tsunami sweeping across Europe.” The real death toll, he suggested, will be in the region of a severe influenza season — maybe double that at most — so we should do what we can to slow it so the health service can cope, but let it pass.

Then, this weekend, it was the turn of Professor Neil Ferguson to answer the Swede’s critique that his overly pessimistic forecasts had tilted the Government into Chinese-style dirigisme. He cut a very different figure — more cautious, more media-trained, lacking the charismatic heft of the Professor Emeritus but making up for it with precise deployment of the facts and figures.

Unfortunately Freddie’s article falls apaet there unless you define precision as manipulation of numbers until your algorithm gives precisely the answer you wanted.

In his eagerness to present a fair and balanced view of these different academics approach to the pandemic, Freddie’s assessment, by avoiding any mention of the tack records on predicted outcomes of the two, is  far too kind to Ferguson. It is a matter of record that he was instrumental in the grotesquely disastrous response to foot and mouth (which was handled far more rationally in the Netherlands) and that he was far too alarmist about the predicted SARS pandemic which cause the World Health Organisation to change the definition of ‘pandemic’ from “hundreds of millions of people all around the world will be infected and milions will die,” to ” a few people here and there will be a little bit poorly..

Moreover, evidence seems to be growing that nations and US states that did not impose severe lockdowns have seen fewer infections and deaths per million. Reports from Sweden where the option of lockdown was rejected, the government having decided that those who survived the pandemic (an overwhelming majority,) needed a nation with a functioning economy. Shutting people up in enclosed spaces has probably caused more deaths than allowing people to go out and get sunshine and fresh air – while quarantining the vulnerable and banning mass participation events, of course.

Without implying any support for anything Donal Trump is alleged to have sais, it is known that UV light destroys viruses very quickly, and so in sunny weather such as we have enjoyed in Britain during the lockdown period, and even on days with a light covering of cloud, we are very unlikely to be infected with a virus while outside so long as we do not start getting up close and personal with strangers.

Ferguson is primarily a statistician and a computer modeller – much like the IPCC ‘climatologists’ who gave us overheated projections which have not materialised.
Ferguson’s and Imperial College’s dependence on large-scale funding from the Gates Foundation, the of which and also of Microsoft – the company that made ‘not-fit-for-purpose acceptable quality to put on the market, is Bill Wannabe Galactic Emperor Palpatine Gates, who has been pushing the for profit vaccine manufacturer his charitable foundation owns to the forefront of the race to develop a vaccine against COVID – 19, does not exactly create confidence in the accuracy and objectivity of their projections.
As with the IPCC, the projections serve a political and social-transformation agenda.

The question is not of believing wither one or the other of these so called experts but detailed anaysis analysis of the FACTS. For the USA, from where we have the most reliable information, (UK figures are horribly distored to justify actions which have inflicted economic damage that will take decades to repair, ) facts on positive cases (numerator) over total tested (denominator) reflect a rapid percentage drop in the deaths against population. As to Ferguson, his views are as dangerous as his forecasts:
2,001 – All farm animals, even of species not affected by foot and mouth disease, on farms where the disease had been identified and adjacent farms even if they had had no cases of foot and mouth be slaughtered to prevent the disease crossing the species gap and killing humans, (actually it does not kill animals  except in rare cases, but does destroy their economic value.
2002 – 50 000 CJD  (Mad Cow Disease) estimated deaths revised upwards to 150 000 if sheep were infected. FACT, CJD Research Surveillance Unit at Uni of Edinburgh report 178 deaths since 1990
2005 – Up to 200 MILLION (!!!) deaths from Bird Flu (H5N1). WHO reports in 2006 78 out of 147 reported.
2009 – Swine flu would result in 65 000 deaths in UK. Ended up at 457.

Clearly he is deluded, stupid or downright dishonest (yes Prof Ferguson I just libelled you, I hope to hear from your lawyers soon – but I will not be holding my breath.)

The focus needs to move from death figures to quality of life and quality of death. We all die sometime, it is how well we live our lives up to that point and when we die the impact that has on those who mourn us. It is known that the majority of deaths have been among people over retirement age and, expressed as a percentage the curve steepens more sharply the further past retirement we get.

The main criterium in justifying the lockdown was that the Reinfection (R) rate should n be below 1, i.e. the average number of people infected by someone carrying the virus should be less than one. When the 5 tests were first announced the ‘R’ test was: we must not have a second peak that overwhelms the NHS. That changed to there must be no risk of a second peak – R must not get above 1.

We also need to look at all cause mortality ie the people who are not dying from the virus but because of the measures taken to stop it. How many people are going to have an agonising death from cancer because they are not being treated early enough or how many are dying of cardio vascular problems because they are not seeking help in time?

I have often noted in the past few weeks that everything in life is a risk, from crossing the road to eating an unfamiliar food that might give you anaphylactic shock. This is the inherent problem with the Ferguson mathematical modelling  approach, he starts from the position that all risk can be eliminated but it can’t.

There can be no doubt that people are already dying from the lockdown, people are not going to GP or A&E with serious medial issues, cancer patients aren’t getting treated, diagnosis is being delayed etc. That’s before we get to the grim toll of suicides which will result from mental health issues arising from the effects of isolation, or from the financial distress caused by loss of jobs, income, house, etc. Yet Prof. Ferguson argues that most, if not all the lockdown restrictions should remain in place unti a vaccine is available, a statement that echoes the words of his paymaster Bill Gates in that disturbingly creepy interview he did for the BBC a couple of weeks ago.

The vaccine cult brings us to the “elephant in the room”. What if we don’t get a vaccine?
Everything out there says we probably won’t get a vaccine for some time, it probably won’t be that effective and there is every likely hood it won’t work at all. What then? If there is no vaccine or one that only protects for a short time we will have to go back to normal life and accept the consequences ie deaths!

The lockdown was designed to slow the spread of the virus until the NHS could create the capacity to cope. It’s been created. Now the goal posts are being moved to one of trying to defeat the virus. We can’t defeat any virus, we need a reality check. Life won’t stop and the lockdown will be gone long before the virus!

‘It’s kind of a rule of thumb’: Adviser reveals UK govt’s 2-meter social distance instruction based on ‘muddy science’

from RT, 25 April 2020

The British public cannot be expected to just do as they’re told by the government for long, since the guidelines are very disruptive and not as scientifically sound as officials make them seem to be, a government adviser said.

One example would be the instruction for people to keep two meters apart from other people to reduce the risk of infection, advice which was “conjured out of nowhere,” according to professor Robert Dingwall.

“There’s never been a scientific basis for two meters, it’s kind of a rule of thumb. But it’s not like there is a whole kind of rigorous scientific literature that it is founded upon,” he told BBC’s Radio 4. Evidence exists that observing a one meter distance would be beneficial during an epidemic, but even that “comes out of indoor studies in clinical and experimental settings.”Continue reading >>>

Coronavirus: 20 April 2020 – NoSign Of A Return To Normality, Chaos Beckons

The European Union Is Dead But Does Not Yet Know It

Authored by Giulio Meotti via The Gatestone Institute,

The new coronavirus appears to be tearing apart the fragile framework of the European Union.

“Europe” said the former Commission chief and a EU godfather, Jacques Delors, “is in “mortal danger“.

If citizens feel themselves abandoned at the heart of the pandemic, said Former French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, the EU could “collapse“.

The EU objective was evidently supposed to be an “ever closer union“. But now, if the EU does not show solidarity and strength at a time of global crisis, what is the EU’s purpose? Its ideological supporters have a mantra: each new problem must be solved by more Europe. “Europe is our future, we have no other”, Germany’s former Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher once said.

Although these are important and dramatic statements, each time it is as if something even more important and dramatic needs to happen to shake people awake, as if the European Union is never actually seen as dying.

Sadly, these high-flown phrases seem to shrivel into empty slogans.

The truth is that there is no “Union”. There is a conglomerate of European states trying to take advantage of some rules called “the union”. In times of crisis, old European divisions always seem to reopen — and crises are part of the old continent, possibly its epitaph.

The coronavirus now has put the European Union and its comfort zone face-to-face with all its weaknesses, decadence and cowardice. Continue reading >>>

China Outraged After Largest German Newspaper Accuses Beijing Of “Exporting” Coronavirus Pandemic, Demands €149 Billion In Damages

Let’s see how the pro-China “fact checkers” blow up on this one.

The editor-in-chief of Germany’s largest paper Bild on Thursday launched a full frontal attack on China’s communist president Xi Jinping for his regime’s failure to lying about the coronavirus outbreak and the massive human rights violations carried out by the Communist Party, and demanding no less that €149 billion in damages as a result of China’s actions.

In an article titled “What China Owes Us”, Julian Reichelt, the prominent editor-in-chief of the Bild, wrote to Jinping that  “Your embassy in Berlin has addressed me in an open letter because we asked in our newspaper Bild whether China should pay for the massive economic damage the coronavirus is inflicting worldwide.”

Addressing the Chinese president, the German editor wrote that, “You, your government and your scientists had to know long ago that coronavirus is highly infectious, but you left the world in the dark about it. Your top experts didn’t respond when Western researchers asked to know what was going on in Wuhan. You were too proud and too nationalistic to tell the truth, which you felt was a national disgrace.”

Reichelt said that, “You rule by surveillance. You wouldn’t be president without surveillance. You monitor everything, every citizen, but you refuse to monitor the diseased wet markets in your country. You shut down every newspaper and website that is critical of your rule, but not the stalls where bat soup is sold. You are not only monitoring your people, you are endangering them – and with them, the rest of the world.” … Continue reading >>>

 

Disturbing Developments In UK Policing

Via Off-Guardian.org,

A couple of days ago someone brought the following clip to our attention on Twitter:

From the tannoy declarations of “you in the blue, go home”, to the haranguing tone, to the declarations the journalist is “killing people”, it’s all pretty disturbing.

And this is far from an isolated incident … Continue reading >>>

 

UK Public Health Bureaucrats Slammed as ‘Not Fit for Purpose’, Caught ‘Like Rabbits in Headlights’

by Jack Montgomery,  Breitbart Europe

Technocrats at the Public Health England (PHE) agency advising the British government during the coronavirus pandemic have behaved like “rabbits in the headlights” and proved themselves “not fit for purpose”, according to a top care executive.

Professor Martin Green, who leads the Care England — which is both a charity and the “leading representative body for independent care services in England” according to its website — said the PHE quango led by Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty had proved particularly hopeless on the issue of personal protection equipment (PPE).

“PPE has been from the start of this pandemic, a real challenge,” Professor Green explained in comments to The Sun.

“It’s partly been a challenge because of the distribution but it’s also partly been a challenge because we have not received proper and consistent and clear advice from people like [Public Health England],” he said … Continue reading >>>

 

Easter Sunday: More Eggciting Coronavirus News From The Dark Side

St Louis doctor has had enough of ‘Covid-19’ bullshit – speaks out vehemently and confirms mass miss-diagnosis on death certificates.

This blog has been eager to point out the inconsistencies of government responses to the COVID – 19 coronavirus from the beginning of the whole fear – and panic project. We called out the Chinese government for hushing up the outbreak in Wuhan for two months, suppressing news and silencing (!) doctors who tried to warn the rest of the world, we have consistently reported how the outbreak has been sensationalised by western media and exploited by Deep State elements to further political agendas and by dishonest scientists to further their careers.

In fact we actually warned at the beginning of the UK lockdown three weeks ago, when older people, along with those that had long term health problems were placed under house arrest, that COVID – 19 was being turned into an excuse for the biggest assault on individual freedom since World War 2

And after us being called conspiracy theorists and all the usual crap,  it is turning out that we were right, about the Chinese duplicity, the media exaggeration and the use of fear and panic, generated by hysterical media coverage, to enforce compliance. It has happened here, all over Europe and in the USA. But gradually people are starting to speak out, In Italy, Spain and Britain families have said though their loved ones did not die of coronavirus, the death certificate recorded that they did, doctors have said they have been pressured to diagnose coronavirus when it was not the cause of illness or death, and others, scientists and statisticians have highlighted the fundamental flaws in the methodology of the mathematical models used to produce the “evidence” on which government policy was based.

Here’s a YouTube video recorded by an outraged doctor in St. Louis, USA, a ten minute rant in which he describes all the various malpractices being used to manipulate figures and thus whip up more fear and panic about this virus, which in reality poses no great threat for the majority of us.

Northern Ireland Facist Cops Launch Lockdown Violations Reporting Site

from Breitbart Europe
Another British police force has launched a website for people to inform on their fellow citizens who, they believe, have broken the coronavirus lockdown measures.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) urged the public to report any instances of citizens allegedly not abiding by the social distancing rules introduced by the government, such as public gatherings of more than two people, travelling for non-essential reasons or continuing to operate businesses that have not been exempt from the lockdown rules.

Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd said they had launched the website to free up the emergency phone line, which has been jammed with complaints from people attempting to inform on their fellow citizens. Since the lockdown was introduced on March 28 in Northern Ireland — part of the United Kingdom located in the northernmost area of the island of Ireland — some 906 complaints have been filed with the police … Continue reading

Explosive Report: Wuhan Biolab Captured Bats From Caves Traced To COVID-19 Outbreak, Had US Funding

by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge

Recent findings regarding the origin of COVID-19 continue to support our January reporting that the disease may have originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – which was experimenting with bat coronavirus found to be 96% genetically identical to COVID-19.

On Saturday, the Daily Mail added an important piece to the puzzle; the institute was experimenting on mammals captured over 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which is particularly notable because genetic analysis of COVID-19’s genome has traced it to horseshoe bats found in Yunnan’s caves.

Also disturbing is that the lab had been operating in part on a $3.7 million grant from the US government… Continue reading

Why are some respected alt-media embracing a police state?

Why are some respected alt-media embracing a police state?

Catte Black

It should be obvious by now to anyone that the covid19 pandemic, whatever its origins, is being used to fast forward a “new normal” world of unparalleled government power, surveillance and curtailment of individual liberty.

We are looking already at:

  • Compulsory DNRs for some elderly.
  • Biometric chips or bracelets to monitor whether or not you have permission to be outside your home or engage in work
  • Drone surveillance as normal.
  • Apps on your phone that can detect any breach of the self-isolation policy.
  • Huge new police powers of arrest and detention for anyone suspected of carrying the virus.
  • Suspension of elections for indefinite periods at government discretion

And this is only the starter course. We can be pretty sure they are currently just easing us in. The real stuff will be rolling along in the next months or maybe years (depending on how quickly they feel able to get this on) … Continue reading >>>
