    thank you, will have a look.

    (The other half is writing to his union. As a result now the WA govt announcing the mandating of the jab for WA mining workers, the union has deserted the field, because the CHO “knows what he’s doing.”

    He wants to point out that the “vaccines” don’t have a particularly good success rate, hence the need for some info. He said he’s going to use the EJ Whitten school of diplomacy – “we stuck it up ’em.”

    BHP bosses will front a landmark parliamentary inquiry into sexual harassment in WA’s resources sector this week, as MPs plan more hearings than first expected amid intensifying public scrutiny of the issue.

    Sounds like another beat up and excuse to go after FIFO. Mining camps can be worse than Melrose Place, there are the home family and the camp families for some who are disposed that way. Moranbah 10 years ago had their pearl clutchers going on about the dangers of FIFO workers, I used to exercise after shift and never saw any shortage of female walkers out on Mills Ave or Belyando Ave even after dark. Funny that for such a risky environment for women.

    BBS,
    Here is the register I mentioned.
    You need to search by each vaccine, and it doesn’t have a field that says ‘death’, just the technical name for the reaction…heart failure, for example.

    As for your husbands approach, if I can help with any info I’ve gathered, I’m happy to assist where I can.

    Andrew Bolt: Scott Morrison’s climate backflip a failure of leadership

    The Prime Minister is making fools of conservatives who trusted him at the last election when he promised to save them from Labor’s global warming plans.

    Scott Morrison is betraying Liberal voters who believed him when he waved a lump of coal in parliament and shouted “this is coal, don’t be afraid, don’t be scared, it won’t hurt you”.

    The Prime Minister is making fools of conservatives who trusted him at the last election when he promised to save them from Labor’s global warming plans, saying its “emissions reduction target of 45 per cent will cost everybody’s wage $9000 a year”.

    Instead, he’s now pushing for even bigger cuts – “net zero” by 2050 – and this time it’s supposed not to hurt a bit.

    What a failure of leadership. And what a disastrous repetition of history.

    When Europeans first explored Tasmania, they were amazed that Tasmanian Aborigines had taboos on eating fish, even though fish would have saved them from going hungry. They’d also lost the ability to make fire, as mainland Aborigines could.

    Here we go again. Australia has vast deposits of coal and uranium ore. Coal is perfect for the cheap, reliable electricity that’s helped make us rich. Uranium is perfect for reliable nuclear power that is the zero emissions energy that global warmists demand.

    Yet we’ve banned nuclear power for no sane reason and are now also making coal taboo. Morrison is now pushing his National Party partners to let him go to the big Glasgow climate summit next month with a “net zero” promise that will doom coal-fired power.

    What a joke. Nothing Morrison promises will make a difference to the climate. We’re too small, pumping out just 1.13 per cent of the world’s man-made emissions.

    That’s why every political leader I’ve asked – Kevin Rudd, Bill Shorten, Tony Abbott and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg – refused to say what difference their plans would make to the temperature. They don’t want you to know the answer is “essentially nothing”, as former chief scientist Alan Finkel admitted.

    Nor is it clear that the small warming we’re seen should be stopped. Over the past 40 years Australia has had bigger crops and fewer cyclones, and many dams are close to full. Our planet is greening. And why is Morrison going to Glasgow when the leaders of China and India, which pump out a third of the world’s emissions, won’t say they’re going, too, instead ordering their power stations to burn more coal to avoid electricity shortages now crippling green Europe?

    Morrison should just be straight with us. He’s only going because we’re being blackmailed.

    Frydenberg says international investment funds, now fashionably green, will hit Australia with higher borrowing costs if we don’t promise net zero. Some European countries could hurt our trade if we don’t cave.

    Morrison himself explained on the weekend we had to “deal with significant economic challenges as the world [sic] moves towards a net zero economy.”

    The Prime Minister should explain his backflip by giving us those blunt realities, and should be honest: this has almost nothing to do with the climate.

    It’s the green lies I cannot stand, and which insult our intelligence. We may have to give in to the blackmail, but we don’t have to give in to the bull. No, global warming is not an existential threat. No, the Great Barrier Reef is not dying. No, we’re not in more danger of dying in climate disasters.

    But where is Morrison’s leadership? Most importantly, if he really does think Australia must give up its cheap and vast fossil fuels, why not campaign to end our irrational ban on nuclear power?

    Morrison simply does not dare. He’s instead helping to deny us two great and proven power sources, and offering instead new green ones like blue hydrogen and green hydrogen that haven’t even been shown to work.

    This is insanity to match Tasmania’s Aborigines throwing away their boomerangs, barbed spears and fish hooks.

    Alan Finkel, himself a warming activist, last week conceded “in practice the future costs for both green and blue hydrogen remain unknown”.

    The International Energy Agency likewise admitted “reaching net-zero emissions will require the widespread use after 2030 of technologies that are still under development”.

    The Business Council of Australia this month demanded a 50 per cent cut to our emissions which it admitted – incredibly – depended on “requisite technologies (that) had not all been developed”.

    And so our new-age global warming primitives walk off to a mystic future, Morrison at their head, damning technologies that made us rich and promising magic solutions the other side of that rainbow. We are watching another civilisation in decline.

    Stick with the irrefutable facts.

    1: The vaccines are only under provisional approval.

    2: The government is forcing them on the population which is demonstrably immoral/unethical and is counter to the tenets of western liberal democracies.

    As Mater said it’s hard to pull out the data and when it comes to the adverse reactions issue some people head straight of to nanowriggler land.

    Tony Abbott takes aim at ABC culture Nick Tabakoff

    4:03PM October 17, 2021
    315 Comments

    Conservative think tank the Institute of Public Affairs has never been on the ABC’s Christmas card list. And that won’t be changing any time soon, with news reaching Diary that the IPA is about to release a serialised podcast series called ‘Their ABC’, which will examine “what’s wrong with the ABC and how to fix it”.

    The headline act of the new podcast series, we’re told, is a lengthy critique of the national broadcaster by Tony Abbott — who has never been the ABC’s biggest fan.

    Judging by some early grabs of the former prime minister’s comments obtained by Diary, his take is likely to generate plenty of media noise.

    “It seems that they are on everyone’s side but ours,” Abbott says.

    “They tend to be against the Australian government, regardless of its persuasion, but particularly if it’s a centre-right government.

    “If Australia is in a disagreement with another country, they tend to take that country’s perspective and assume that we’ve done something wrong.”

    Abbott adds: “We‘ve tried almost everything, different managing directors, different directors … any number of observations about where things should go. But it’s the culture that’s the problem.”

    Plenty of other conservatives are poised to join Abbott in the series, including his former chief of staff and Sky News host Peta Credlin, ex-deputy PM John Anderson, One Nation’s Mark Latham, and Coalition senators Andrew Bragg, Sarah Henderson, Bridget McKenzie, Alex Antic and Matt Canavan.

    The interviews have been conducted over nearly a year around the country by the IPA’s communications director, Evan Mulholland. The first instalment of the five-part podcast is out next week.

    The podcast will also examine at length some of the IPA’s pet subjects, including whether the ABC should be privatised, allowed to advertise, or offer a subscription service.

    My mistake. Higgs was a leggie. Wiki:

    Ashley Mallett was Australian spinner at the time so Higgs did not play a Test on tour, but gained fame by not scoring a run for the whole tour. He batted twice and was bowled by the only ball he faced

    Anything he managed to tweak would have been dwarfed by Lillee and Thomson.

    As a No. 11, made Glenn McGrath look like Ponting.

    I was told the following story – can’t vouch for it.

    His first night at training at Melbourne Uni Cricket Club he told them he was an opening batsman who bowled a bit. He looked great with the ball but hopeless with the bat, but they reasoned he might be unused to turf, so they assumed he’d come good and selected him as a batsman in the 5th’s.
    On debut he took 7/20 odd and was out 2nd ball of MUCC’s innings.
    Next week he was in the 3rd’s – out first ball of the innings but then took 5/30 odd.
    He was told to report for the firsts the next week. MUCC won the toss and elected to bat.
    “I’d better put the pads on then skipper” Higgsy said.
    “Actually Jim we were thinking of easing you into it at No. 11”.

    The International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates work in a similar fashion to existing vaccine certificates and will be available for download through the MyGov website.

    But they have added QR codes that can be scanned by foreign border officials.

    “If you travel overseas, and that overseas country requires proof of your vaccination status, you will have a copy of it,” Employment Minister Stuart Robert said.
    …..
    “In the same way, for example, that for the last 20 years Australians, when they travelled to Africa, they have had to carry a little international vaccination book that showed the Yellow Fever vaccination.

    Traditionally, real vaccines don’t actually kill anybody.

    Except the smallpox vaccine, which was approximately as nasty as claimed for the Covid vax. One or two deaths per million first doses + up to 50 serious injuries per million – tragically, mainly in infants.

    Why the secrecy?

    Morrison is attempting to create a permanent new branch of government, one that meets in secret and tells us and our parliaments what the legislative program for the country is going to be going forward forever.

    No joke, he’s recreating the European Commission in Australia. He’s transforming Australia into an mini-EU.

    [the European Commission] operates as a cabinet government, with 27 members of the Commission (informally known as “commissioners”).[4][5] There is one member per member state, but members are bound by their oath of office to represent the general interest of the EU as a whole rather than their home state.

    National Cabinet == European Commission.

    This has been a coup.

    Nine days ago the unvaccinated group in hospital was 65%. Now they tell us it’s 89%.

    That is probably due to the vaccinated dying like flies.

    We spoke to a bloke yesterday who is responsible for covid patients.
    A lot of them and in both hospital intensive care and home-care post-positive test.
    He gave us well over an hour of his time on the phone.
    He is kind of family so it wasn’t a consultation, it was and earnest and sober and informational act of selflessness and love.

    Both the missus and I have been very VX hesitant due to severe allergies in particular, and also because we know damned well that there is nothing coherent to gleaned from the internet (expecially this forum) and next to no point talking to a GP because as usual they don’t much about shit.

    Who’s gonna listen to a CH9 advertisement when journalists are even bigger whores than politicians?

    Who can trust anything right now with the idiotic messaging from Govt and the shifting of goal posts.
    Can you blame anybody for their dis-belief?
    No, I don’t think so
    ffs, they shoot at you in Melbourne for protesting their own idiotic messaging, mismanagement and policy over-reach.
    FFS !! don’t even get me started on mandates

    any way.

    re: the cohort in hospitalized and double-VXd. Yah, they are positives that are co-morbid.
    So, one of the guys who treats them told me yesterday that they’re there because they are under care. He said they’re hospitalized because they have known comorbidities and need management.

    THEY WONT be the dead ones, he said. They get VXd, theyre already compromised, they test +ve, they get in hospital, they get fixed.

    The ones that are in trouble are the ones where the virus started out mild, then ate them from inside out. un or partially VXd … Inexplicable, devastating and numbering in the hundreds.

    I’ll tell you another thing.
    without actually saying so, I understood why the AZ was a problem.
    Lets just say idiot policy forced it into yr arse (my words)
    but recently that’s changed
    if you came out ok … excellent

    Pfizzer has been administered to billions and basically near zero problems
    We talked about anaphylaxis and all sorts of stuff.
    He said he knows of squillions and only has knowledge of 2 cases here in Vik where allergy was an issue and he said it was mild and manageable.
    a non-event.

    He talked also at length about cases in people already VXnated
    About how they generally present,even if they have a positive test post VXd
    It’s a very very different illness he said.
    They wont die.
    Maybe, if they have some immune problem that they didn’t know about. maybe

    But generally a VXd person who gets the bug … they prolly wont die.

    no the people that do croak are the unvaxxed.
    obviously not all of them by a large proportion
    but its a fucking lottery.

    so for a VX with vanishishingly close to zero problems versus something of a lottery if you catch the bug, it’s kind of a no-brainer.

    I know, I’ve been pretty staunch
    I don’t believe a bloody word I hear for the most part (because yr all shit-talkers)
    but this bloke … he’s the only bloke I’d accept it from

    just sayin’

    Most people who died, vaccinated or not, have been in their 80s and 90s.

    The age of an average COVID fatality was more than the life expectancy of an Australian.

    I am still not convinced, given the damning Project Veritas videos.

    Something is not right.

    Novavax delayed (works better, safer & used less controversial research methods), doctors constrained in giving advice; “health advice” one month that is contrary to advice given later; secrecy of national cabinet and a legacy media complex (fat off rivers of government advertising gold) lecturing people in matters they are wholly unqualified in, given in an inflammatory and haughty tone.

    It points to the government being unable to admit they were wrong in the first place – they overstated the risk but let in hundreds of not thousands of people positive with COVID.

    They cannot ever admit they were wrong or they will lose face.

    They “must” walk it back as if they averted a catastrophe and any loss; they are not responsible for.

    The mRNA vaxx injects a bit of the COVID virus RNA into your cells, taking over and changing them, essentially tricking the cells to create that bit of the virus (the spike protein). This trains your immune system to recognise that spike and and attack it sooner.

    The viral vector vaccine essentially takes a chimpanzee adeno virus and adds in a bit of the cOVID DNA into its that when the chimp virus is absorbed by your cells they again get tricked into producing the COVID spike protein.

    It is critical to inject these vaccines into muscles so that the virus is created there and the body learns how to respond to it there. If the vaccine gets into your bloodstream the response may take place in the heart or brain – and that will cause the pericarditis or strokes etc.

    The normal protein based flu vax works different- it exposes the body to a dead or inactive virus shell…. The whole lot! It does not trick your cells to mutate and create only a bit.

    This is prob the reason why the current approved crop of vaccines are leaky – they train the body to respond to only one bit… and that bit is. It from the vaccine… but one created by your cells.

    There are a million YouTube vids explaining this…

    Except the smallpox vaccine, which was approximately as nasty as claimed for the Covid vax.

    Was that in the past when the vax was made from scrapings off the scab of the pox?

    Or is that true for the current variants?

    Putin said that the Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping’s recent speech mentioned the possibility of peaceful reunification. He believes that China’s “national philosophy” does not advocate military threats.

    I don’t think China needs to use force. China is a powerful economy. In terms of purchasing power parity, China’s economy has now surpassed the United States to become the world’s number one.” He said.

    “As long as its economic potential is enhanced, China will be able to achieve its national goals. I don’t see any threats.” He added.

    “The CCP can’t decide (how) to deal with Putin’s “unexpected serve”.” Yang Xianhong wrote.

    He said that the CCP still doesn’t know how to respond to Putin’s remarks, telling Putin that “The Taiwan issue is China’s internal affairs, and Russia is not qualified to make irresponsible remarks.”

    Novavax delayed (works better, safer & used less controversial research methods)

    Heard from someone who would know – Novavax is never getting FDA approval. (I mean – it has been tested in tens if not hundreds of thousands of experimental cases and has much much less side effects and is better against delta and other variants – so I guess that means that it’s too much of a competitor to the big boys club of trough snouting pharmas … and that is not on eh?)

    Could be wrong, but I understand the pox-based vaccine was replaced about 100 years ago by the version that was still being used when I was (belatedly) jabbed in the mid-1960’s.

    An American saying 5/5 is just shorthand for “5 wins from 5 games/starts”.
    o/5 is American for “zero wins in 5 starts”.
