  3. I can say, I’ve never seen shit like this before. There have been major, major supply shocks.

    Yes, not a demand shortage, clearly supply side. But why?

    Because labour mobility (labour seeking economic benefit) has been curtailed by the plague, leading to labour shortages. Simple.

    Something similar but different happened after the Black Death, leading to a change of economic relations which ultimately overthrew feudalism.

    Events unfolded immediately making them look like the dicks they are.
    Now, we note the silence of those that realised what border crossing to the unvaxed can actually mean……they decided to immediately talk about other subjects and hope their arrogant and ignorant bullshit be quickly holed in the forgettery.

    Lisa Wilkinson has been inundated with calls and messages of support from friends and fellow female TV journalists after revealing the details of her controversial departure from Channel 9.

    Some of those who got in touch echoed similar experiences at the hands of a workplace “boys’ club”, following the publication of a hard-hitting extract from her upcoming memoir It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This.

    “Messages saying ‘Lisa, you’ve described what happened to me last year or three years ago’,” Wilkinson said. “Or ‘Lisa, this is why I left television’.

    “I tell you I am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment.”

    It’c clearly obvious what will happen next. An all-chick ‘current events’ show, preferably with an also all-chick production crew.

  41. From the RACGP publication:

    “There is not enough evidence to plan widespread booster COVID-19 shots, a new review in The Lancet suggests.

    The article ‘Considerations in boosting COVID-19 vaccine immune responses’ was published this week. Its authors include a group of scientists from international institutions such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Food and Drug Administration, the University of Washington, and the University of Oxford, among others…

    ‘Although the benefits of primary COVID-19 vaccination clearly outweigh the risks, there could be risks if boosters are widely introduced too soon, or too frequently, especially with vaccines that can have immune-mediated side effects.

    ‘If unnecessary boosting causes significant adverse reactions, there could be implications for vaccine acceptance that go beyond COVID-19 vaccines. Thus, widespread boosting should be undertaken only if there is clear evidence that it is appropriate.’

    Someone’s now unpopular.

    From CNN:

    “The authors of the paper include two senior FDA vaccine leaders, Dr. Philip Krause and Marion Gruber, who will be stepping down in October and November, the FDA announced late last month. No further details were released about their retirements, although they sparked questions about whether the departures would affect the agency’s work.”

    KD, I’ll tell you a secret: no-one actually runs Australia’s Ten Network for its American owner, CBS. Only in the past few days will anyone at CBS have received an email about what a ratings disaster Network 10’s top “news” programs have become.

    Nobody at CBS will understand the problem because CBS’s news shows in the US are worse in turning off middle America.

    Narcissistic look-at-me females like Pirate Pete’s missus are a ratings disaster for Ten because they turn off middle Australia.

    So the reaction at CBS to its ratings disaster Down Under will simply confirm to the bean counters that treating Network 10 as a tax dodge was and is an excellent strategy.

  54. Here you go JC. This is a quote from a Nature article from 2018 if you are disinclined to look at the link. It’s quite prophetic.

    Several different mRNA vaccines have now been tested from phase I to IIb clinical studies and have been shown to be safe and reasonably well tolerated (Tables 2, 3). However, recent human trials have demonstrated moderate and in rare cases severe injection site or systemic reactions for different mRNA platforms22,91. Potential safety concerns that are likely to be evaluated in future preclinical and clinical studies include local and systemic inflammation, the biodistribution and persistence of expressed immunogen, stimulation of auto-reactive antibodies and potential toxic effects of any non-native nucleotides and delivery system components. A possible concern could be that some mRNA-based vaccine platforms54,166 induce potent type I interferon responses, which have been associated not only with inflammation but also potentially with autoimmunity167,168. Thus, identification of individuals at an increased risk of autoimmune reactions before mRNA vaccination may allow reasonable precautions to be taken. Another potential safety issue could derive from the presence of extracellular RNA during mRNA vaccination. Extracellular naked RNA has been shown to increase the permeability of tightly packed endothelial cells and may thus contribute to oedema169. Another study showed that extracellular RNA promoted blood coagulation and pathological thrombus formation170. Safety will therefore need continued evaluation as different mRNA modalities and delivery systems are utilized for the first time in humans and are tested in larger patient populations.

    All the highlighted aspects have occurred widely amongst the mRNA recipients. Many deaths have occurred from heart inflammation and blood clotting. Autoimmune disease causes a suppressed immune system. Which renders you more susceptible to infections. I’ve previously linked data which shows rheumatoid arthritis suffers commonly experience a large increase in their symptoms after Covid vaccination. This is consistent with the overall mechanism.

    I do dislike being educated by a Dunning-Kruger sufferer like you seem to be JC.

    Stix – I don’t expect sympathy from anyone. Our justified anger needs to be directed towards those responsible for this fascist insanity – our beloved politico/bureaucrat/meeja class.

    And yes, JC, I’m guilty as charged. But what exactly do I have to be happy about? At this rate I’ll still be under house arrest until 1 December, having been so confined since the evening of 18 June – and spare me any rubbish about being thankful I don’t live in India, etc.

    It’s also not as if we can take any comfort from other news – for example, all this “year net zero” stupidity is seriously getting on my goat. We are governed by vile irredeemable imbeciles unashamedly committed to destroying what’s left of our way of life. We have been disenfranchised, thanks to our staggeringly stupid and no longer fit for any useful purpose political system – and it looks very much like things are only going to get worse from here anyway.

  60. Fremantle Port strike: 60 Qube wharfies chuck sickies, blame COVID jab policy
    Jenne Brammer
    The West Australian
    Mon, 18 October 2021 7:24PM
    Jenne Brammer

    The Maritime Union of Australia claims a “no jab, no work” policy was responsible for almost a quarter of stevedore Qube’s workforce not turning up for work at Fremantle Port over the weekend, after a 77-day strike was suspended.

    Qube said it aimed to fill 260 shifts between Friday and Monday at Fremantle but 60 rostered workers called in sick —possibly an Australian record.

    The absences meant Qube had to drop a shift — unloading a bulk steel vessel — on Sunday. Qube’s normal sick day absences average 1.5 persons a day.

    MUA WA branch secretary Will Tracey confirmed there was a lot of absentees but said it was because of the COVID vaccine policy that took effect on Friday.

    Vaccination is mandatory for WA’s port workers who board or work with exposed vessels, with an October 15 deadline for first dose and November 12 deadline for full vaccination.

    “If you don’t have evidence of vaccinations you are not allowed to go to work and Qube has been telling people to book off sick,” Mr Tracey said.

    “That’s just not Qube and not just Fremantle — it’s affecting ports from Albany to Wyndham. The next biggest site for Qube is Port Hedland, where there is no dispute, and 29 of 64 people didn’t go to work over the weekend for this reason.”

    Mr Tracey said he expected most Qube workers would get vaccinated but either haven’t been able to get in for a vaccine or do not yet have the evidence, which takes 10 days to appear on the MyGov site.

    Qube Ports director Michael Sousa said while the removal of the protected industrial action by the MUA was welcomed, obstructive behaviour was now impacting operations.

  63. A British Army veteran accused of fatally shooting a man in Northern Ireland during the Troubles almost 50 years ago died last night after catching Covid midway through the controversial trial.

    Dennis Hutchings, 80, was suffering from terminal kidney failure and heart disease when he flew to Belfast this month to face a judge-only trial, but said he was determined to clear his name over the alleged attempted murder of John Pat Cunningham in County Tyrone in 1974.

    His case was one of two ongoing prosecutions of Northern Ireland veterans who served during the Troubles despite government plans announced in the summer to end all criminal and civil cases relating to deaths during the 30-year conflict. The proposals are yet to be implemented and were met with fierce backlash on both sides of Northern Ireland’s political divide.

    Of the 3,250 people who lost their lives during the Troubles, only 301 – around ten per cent – were killed by the British military. Half of these were civilians tragically caught up in crossfire.

    Paramilitary groups including the Provisional IRA were responsible for the remaining 90 per cent, including 722 soldiers.

    A total of 1,441 military personnel died as a result of operations in Northern Ireland.

    How did Thomas Sowell put it?

    “When people get used to preferential treatment, equal treatment seems like discrimination.”

    I expect there are some guys in the industry who do harbour prejudices but think they are commonsense, others who resent some real or imagined injury due to competing against women, and some who are sleazy and have a low opinion of women. In fact I would imagine there are some guys mesmerised by social media, the MSM, and the unceasing barrage of emails about being women’s allies and diversity etc who favour women over men.

    But that is not what they are talking about.

    They refer to a ‘boys club’. As if there is some special bond that men feel with other men merely because they are men, to keep women out regardless of who the woman is. Two guys who barely know each other will smile triumphantly upon excluding a woman who one or both of them might know well.

    I have seen such things depicted in movies. I have never seen it in my life.

    Maybe it is not a boys club. Maybe it is women who were elevated for their gender now being treated according to their talent.

    Physicians Asst. Whistleblower Reveals Hospital Intake With 90 Percent Vaccinated Patients and Hospital Administration Refusing to Report Adverse Events (17 Oct)

    The central statistic in this whistleblower story is important. In a community with a 50% vaccination rate, 90% of the hospital admissions were vaccinated patients, and most of the critical care hospital intakes were within 14 days of the patient taking the vaccine. An alarmed physicians assistant began reporting those issues into the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting system until the hospital administration stepped in to stop her from recording the frequency. She felt obligated to become a whistleblower:

    Entirely in keeping with the 2018 Nature paper I quoted from upthread, which I might add was spruiking mRNA vaccines not dumping on them. And I suspect subclinical effects are a large iceberg under what we are seeing in hospital admissions.

  80. When Germany and the Allies went to war in 39 45, the Allies decided to systematically destroy both German and Japanese industry. This planning went well against Japan – all it required was stopping the shipping.
    Bit more difficult against Germany but still doable.
    So the Allies destroyed rolling stock, the canal system, factories and bridges.
    But it appeared the vital factor was raw materials. Nickel, Tungsten & Molybdenum for armour – German tanks toward the end of the war were known for brittle armour. The Me 262 famously had engines that ran for about ten hours before having to be rebuilt due to wear because of the lack of high temperature metals. Rubber for tyres, the lack of copper for bullets meant that they had to be coated in lacquer to prevent rusting which when hot jammed MG workings, the list goes on.
    Albert Speer went to Hitler in late ’44 and essentially said the war must end because of the lack of raw materials. Luckily, there was enough in the manufacturing pipeline for another couple of months as stockpiles of factory bits and pieces. The Ardennes Offensive was literally Germany’s last chance to win the war. The Final Levy of troops included machinists, chemical engineers and Volksturm.
    German and Japanese supply chains collapsed.
    The US established a Strategic and Critical Materials Stockpile to prepare in 1939.
    What we are now seeing happen to the supply chain is China restricting goods and raw materials (Pharmaceuticals, PPE, computer chips, timber, etc etc.) so that the fat in the supply pipeline is being slowly used up and cannot be there to support the US war industries.
    The Strategic and Critical Materials Stockpile will be drawn down by the O’Biden/Harris Regime, the oil inventories used up.
    The rest of the world is sitting on its collective arse waiting for the US to supply all the tools, and all they have is what’s in the pipeline. We cannot, in Australia, instantly turn iron ore into finished steel plate, or dig rolls of copper wire out the Olympic Dam mine, or pull finished aluminium bar out of Gove and Weipa. We don’t even have the power to run what refining capacity we already have. And if it becomes necessary to use that power for essential war production, the cities will have to have rolling 12 hour blackouts.
    We need to have – as a national priority – a dozen nukes & coal power stations to run our essential smelting and manufacturing industries we need to survive the coming conflict. It takes time to develop a war production base, or even to redeploy the plant we have into defence production.
    Do we even have a plan?

  87. Good article on the alarmism BS by Rozner at the Spec.

    My comment is a doozy:

    “I think it is wildly optimistic”.

    I do too. When the Climate Sceptics party was formed in 2009 I thought there was a real chance of defeating alarmism because science was still the basis of the argument. Now it is entirely ideology and politics and money. The ideology is more like a cult and people are making $billions from the off-spring of alarmism, renewables. 95% of the media is on board and very few politicians have taken a stand. Plus most of the rich folk swallowed alarmism, Twiggy and Cannon-Brookes for example, and the young have had their forming brains completely brain-washed by the activists in education.

    How to fight back against all this?

    Keep it simple. For instance in 2020 human emissions of CO2 fell by 30%. Did CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere fall; nope, they didn’t change. Plus several papers by atmospheric physicists came out in 2020 showing nature is responsible for the increase in CO2.

    Alarmist predictions: not one has come true. Every year leading alarmists tell us we’ve got 5 years or some short time before the whole thing explodes. They ‘ve been doing this for 50 years, first with global cooling now with warming. None of the ice has melted, the seas haven’t risen, storms and droughts haven’t increased, temperatures have increased but no where near what the models predicted. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Yet we still see alarmism treated as though Moses has brought it down and it’s the word of God. In fact it’s the word of idiots like Turnball and Rudd, the 2 worst Australian PMs.

    Time after time the people have voted with their feet. Every election for the last 10 years has been about alarmism and the people have voted against it. And still the politicians ignore it. Scomo won in 2019 on the basis of coal. The recent Hunter by-election saw Turnball and the greens rejected. How much more evidence do the pollies need? The only conclusion you can reach is the pollies are going to ignore what the people want. Unless PHON, UAP and the DLP step up Australia is stuffed.

    If you increase the number of vaccinations occurring in a population, you will also increase the number of reports made of adverse events after vaccination. Not all reports of adverse events after a vaccination are due to the vaccination.
    One would expect that if you vaccinate 70, 80, 90% of a population in a year the number of adverse events after vaccination would increase, because you have massively increased the number of people being vaccinated.
    What you need is a ratio of reported events : events proven caused, for vaccines generally, then apply that to the recent increase in vaccinations.
    Then you’ll know if the increase in reported events is unusual given the number of vaccines given.

    Incidentally the ‘controversy ‘ started when someone decided to denigrate KD for getting vaccinated so he could get down to Victoria to see his recently widowed mother.
    Now pretending to stand on the high moral ground.

    See how she does that.
    Classic POS move of notafan.info.gov.
    I was having a go at the vaccinated making things worse, and then KD responded with his tale of whoa.
    Notafan, like the government she believes in, is a liar.
    And many now see this.
    She is actually at the stage of doing a “numbers”
    Having to leave when confronted with reality so she can come back later and keep on with the bullshit.

    Talking about what we now know as undeniable facts………

    Let’s regroup nearly two years into a two week tyranny to flatten the curve.
    Cases mean nothing because the tests have been shown to be completely useless but just used as a propaganda tool.
    Fact.
    The conspiracy theorist in this case has been the one who distrusts government, and should rightly be called a history buff.
    Fact.
    And all this happening was openly declared last year by those who read what the enemy told us they would be doing.
    The vaccine does not work.
    Obcious, undeniable fact.
    At all.
    Fact.
    The vaccine does however kill.
    Undeniable fact.
    We know it kills, and kills quickly. Those those that aren’t dead from it within a couple of weeks can sit and ponder the mystery of what organ the spike protein is attacking inside them which will make death via the vaccine easy to deny, because it will be a myriad of deaths.
    But the age of people will be the tell tale.
    The young dying of strokes and heart attacks for example.
    As is happening.
    We know it causes injury in those it doesn’t immediately kill, we’ve all seen the videos of the jab jive and the dropped sided faces, of the young in agony.
    Yet like we now see in Britain, a “super cold” is coming through, because people’s immune systems have been interfered with by the genetic modifying, murdered baby cells jabbed into them by pure evil.
    The American front line doctors warned of this last year.
    Fact.
    This was scoffed at by the jabbed submissives here.

    Fact.
    Although there were plenty of people here warning those people not to take the jab, for your own health regardless of the immorality of doing so, some did, and you and I both know your submission to this will destroy you.
    And take those that did not submit with you.
    Personal responsibility means recognising that saying “I just have to” and “I’m only just one person” is a croc o’ shit.
    And as Twostix rightly points out…..now the bleeding obvious can’t be denied no matter what bullshit you come up with, you don’t want to be held accountable.
    So here’s an observation open to critique.
    Looking at history and what we now know about the Davos mob, and the non vaccines you took, (and please don’t try to peddle the nonsense they work)……
    We could reasonably conclude, looking overseas, that not only are the jab takers not vaccinated against anything, they are most likely going to die within four to five years , many sooner, because you submitted, and in doing so, you’ll kill people like me in camps like Toowoomba.

    And as the vaccine passport comes in the next is the digital face recognition, the end of cash, and the supply chain collapse, so that we are no longer the rich west, but a poverty stricken , starving shithole of death, …….
    here’s the rub.
    Last time evil like this attempted to take over by force, they were looking for disposable humans to work them to death.
    These evil bastards just want us dead.
    Saving the planet is their justification.
    We have traitors in our highest offices, and I’m sure the collapse of Rome for the same reasons, was a lot easier to escape that the digitally controlled deaths we will not be able to.

    What is it about denying the bleeding obvious?
    What is it about denying Greg Hunt spent two years with Klaus and was awarded by him, and thinking there could not possibly be a connection?
    Some how, miraculous coincidence it may be, but Boris, Horseface Adhern, Trudeau, and many more global heads of governments and swamp monsters have graduated from the Klaus school of global socialist tyranny.
    They don’t hide it, so they know YOU JUST WON’T LET YOURSELF believe it.
    We are at war with traitors.
    It’s logical and common sense and you need to stop denying it, or letting people who will call black white rather than admit they fucked up, control the subject matter. It will send you as insane as they are.

  99. Your family-first liberal government hard at work steadily advancing a key plank of the bolsheviks as the country implodes on their watch:

    From 7 March 2022, families with two or more children aged five years and under in care will have their Child Care Subsidy rate increased by 30 percentage points for their second child and younger children, up to a maximum rate of 95 per cent.

    A family earning $110,000 a year with two kids in care, four days a week will be better off by $100 a week.

    The $10,655 annual cap will also be scrapped on 10 December 2021 and applied retrospectively for the whole 2021-22 financial year, meaning families who hit the cap before the date will receive a refund on any excess fees paid.

    “We’re going to set up a vast apparatus to ban you from going to work, but here….let us take your children off your hands for free while we do it”.

  103. Arky – I reported raw data. The VAERS data file for this year is 13 times larger than last year, which was then the highest ever to that time. And this year’s data is only to October.

    Now if someone in the media was doing investigating reporting I might be able to give you some explanations. But the MSM, as we have observed, is quite parochial lately. And the elites have manned their battlements with their useful idiots and have pulled up every drawbridge they can. Which is a tell.

    Heller is a good data man. I suspect it was he who had a look at the VAERS files and noticed the size differences. (Here’s the link to his blogpost with that graph in it.)

    And as I said the signs in Sundance’s report, and also the American Thinker article mentioned here yesterday the adverse events are being very much underreported.

  104. For those interested, below is a link to the True Devotion to Mary book-PDF (as well as a video summary of the reflection for the day), for those interested in making/renewing their consecration to Mary i.e. to Jesus through Mary

    There are many consecrations one can make to our Blessed Mother, but for me, none quite as edifying as the 33day preparation St Louis De Montfort’s Consecration to Mary.

    Over the the course of those 33 days, one goes on a journey of introspection with the desire to submit oneself completely to Mary, who leads all to Jesus.

    There are prayers said, scriptures verses read and a focus on meditation on various aspects daily, during this monthly preparation. It culminates in the consecration made to Our Blessed Mother on the 34th day, which is always falls on a feast of the BVM.

    On that 34th day one consecrates oneself to Our Lady as well as ensures one receives both communion and confession.

    This devotion draws the soul ever so close to Our Blessed Mother, establishing an intimate connection between mother and child and through this deep connection an automatic drawing near to Our Blessed Lord.

    If you haven’t already done it, I highly recommend you do it, it is a beautiful gift, a treasure at our disposal.

    Today marks the beginning of the 33 day preparation for those hoping the make the consecration of the feast of the Presentation of Our Lady. But you can begin at other times throughout the year: https://www.fisheaters.com/totalconsecrationmontfort.html

  109. Mike Cannon-Brookes launches world’s largest solar farm in NT

    Tech billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes has created the world’s largest solar farm from the Simpson Desert to Singapore. Here’s how the incredible scheme works.

    Joe Hildebrand

    Special report: Take 125 square kilometres of solar panels, a battery that’s 150 times bigger than the biggest in the country, three billion people and a giant extension cord. Then call it “Sun Cable”.

    It sounds like a sci-fi scheme cooked up by a Bond villain. In fact it is Mike Cannon-Brookes’ plan to power Asia with energy from the Australian sun and it is fast becoming real.
    The Atlassian co-founder and tech guru is building the world’s biggest solar farm in the middle of the Northern Territory and what is literally a giant power cable from the Simpson Desert to Singapore.

    Once complete the project will give the 5.5 million-strong island metropolis up to 15 per cent of its total power needs but for Cannon-Brookes that is only the first step.
    He says the AAPowerLink project will just be the first of many. He predicts that soon there will be power lines from Australia to all over Asia, selling them our cheap and abundant solar energy.

    “Think about it as a giant extension cable that runs from our sunny deserts up to Asia,” Cannon-Brookes said. “There are two or three billion consumers that want cheap energy and want a lot of that energy and we have it and can provide it. I’m hopeful it’s the first of many, many, many cables that we string across to neighbouring countries.”

    Sun Cable’s Australia-Asia PowerLink will unlock Australia’s vast world-class solar and land resources to provide significant renewable electricity to Darwin and create a new $2 Billion export industry by supplying up to 15% of Singapore’s electricity needs. Picture: Supplied
    If the scale of the ambition seems staggering, that’s because it is. But everything about the Sun Cable project is on a staggering scale.

    The initial stage of the project alone involves 5,000 kilometres of power lines stretching from the middle of the NT to Darwin and then 4,200km underwater past the full length of Indonesia to Singapore.

    This alone will be the world’s longest High Voltage Direct Current cable system.
    There it will provide up to 15 per cent of the island city-state’s electricity needs – all clean, all green and all from a single power plant in Australia.

    As well as being the world’s largest solar plant, it will also feature the world’s largest battery, capable of storing 36 to 42 gigawatt hours. By contrast Australia’s so-called “Big Battery” in South Australia is just 129 megawatt hours, currently being expanded by 64.5 MWh.

    In other words, when Cannon-Brookes says his is 150 times bigger he is actually underestimating it.

    The whole project is expected to cost upwards of $30 billion, with construction to start in 2024. Sun Cable says it will be providing power to Darwin just two years later in 2026 and to Singapore the year after that, with the whole project to be completed by 2028.
    If true that would be an astonishingly fast build.

    Approximately 2,000 direct jobs are expected to be created in the development, construction and operation alone and over $8 billion of investment is expected to be ploughed directly into Australia.

    Once complete the project is expected to generate up to $2 billion in energy exports for Australia per year.

    As well as being a cheap energy source for the giant Asian market, it will also flood the Australian market with cheap energy, starting with far cheaper rates in the NT.

    “Australia should have the cheapest power on the planet,” Cannon-Brookes said. “We have so many resources opportunities in our sun and wind. We are the lucky country in terms of where we sit geographically in the world and our natural resources when it comes to renewables. We can turn that into by far the cheapest energy anywhere in the world – which we should have, by rights.”

    And when it comes to exports, Cannon-Brookes said Australia had all the ingredients needed to be an energy superpower.

    “We have, as I mentioned, these two to three billion consumers to the north of us who are rapidly coming up the economic curve and what happens when a country gets wealthier is its average salary goes up and its energy consumption also goes up, and energy consumption goes up faster than salary,” he said.

    “And so that is the market for it. Think about us creating this energy and then we have that market right up close to us.

    “That is just a beautiful position to be in, and we should take advantage of that. I would say it’s the biggest economic opportunity than Australia has ever seen. It’s such an amazingly large opportunity.”

    And the 500 odd deaths in Australia are only the ones they can’t blame on anything else.
    In other words the young and healthy.
    Same with VAERS. There is massive under reporting and doctors who will not admit the deaths are from the jab.
    Imagine if you were a doctor and cock sure of your own brilliance admitting you’ve killed a heap of people by being politically naive.

    ………..
    When evaluating data from VAERS, it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause-and-effect relationship has been established. Reports of all possible associations between vaccines and adverse events (possible side effects) are filed in VAERS. Therefore, VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event.

    Disclaimer from the VAERS website (again, my emphasis added):-
    ……..
    VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to the system. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. In large part, reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind.
    ………. End quote.
    I could equally argue that anti-vaxxers are polluting VAERS with dodgy adverse reaction reports.

  125. Don’t be stupid Frank.
    The same rules applied to mall the other vaccines.
    Now your teeny brain maybe saying that due to the large numbers of vaccinated of course there will be more adverse effects and deaths.
    Wrong.
    Millions more have been jabbed with the other proper vaccines over many more years,
    That they have jabbed quickly in this case does not mean that these dead baby injections have been more numerous.
    Hence we see that from the time of the first vaccine until the present time, all the deaths from all the other vaccines over all those years (which means just as large a number and because of the different jabs for mumps and polio and whatever else, many more millions of jabs overall, ) piddle into insignificance compared to what this has killed in such a short time.
    And THINK.
    All of those proper vaccines WERE TESTED first.
    How anyone could possibly be thinking of jabbing themselves with this shit is beyond me.
    For something you laughingly can be asymptomatic from.
    F..k me dead.

  126. Was told on the weekend (treat this as anecdote, not evidence) that BHP are having some staffing troubles due to a reasonable number of production staff not being vaxxed.

    Couldnt happen to a nicer load of fascists.

    Then this story pops up.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-19/fifo-workers-in-pilbara-region-protest-vaccine-mandate/100548182

    Over the weekend, Perth experienced a call to arms by workers opposed to mandatory COVID-19 vaccines. A ripple effect was felt in Karratha, where people took to the streets.

    The “Freedom of choice” peaceful rally was made up of local residents, and families and workers from the mining industry, as the resource industry relies heavily on locals to fill the skilled labour shortage.
    ….
    Is a worker shortage looming?
    Sector worker and protestor John (who didn’t want to give his surname) said he would be forced to give up his job.

    “I’m with one of the big mining companies just up the road here,” he said.

    “Come the first of December, I will walk.”

    Another protestor, Joe, said his employer would have to stand him down.
    New regulations in place state FIFO workers must get one dose of the COVID vaccine by December 1 and be fully vaccinated by January 1, 2022.
    “I’m not going to leave on my own accord. They will have to stand us down.”

    He said he believed he had a right to freedom of choice.

    “I have been FIFO through all of this right up until now,” he said.

    It comes as Victoria Police revealed 34 officers and nine Protective Services Officers (PSOs) had been stood down over a failure to comply with the Victorian government’s vaccination mandate.

    However, for protestor Allen, he said it was cruel act by the big miners.

    “If I don’t get the vaccination by the first of December, I am told [my employment] will be terminated and the same for my wife,” he said.

    We feel like it’s economic coercion.”*

    He said going from two full-time incomes to none would cause a lot of stress and anxiety.

    “I think to threaten people with termination, while mental health is at all-time lows is a pretty low act from these big miners,” he said.

    * This, absolutely this.

    Thus providing endless excuses as to why the vaccine could not have been the cause of the problem.
    None of the possible alternative causes of death were accepted in the China Virus death count. This is all numerical theatre to keep an opponent on the back foot and progress an agenda to frighten a populous into doing something that they would otherwise not do.

  128. For people over-egging ‘adverse’ events, there’s the other side where people are quietly suffering because they don’t want to go to the doctor and say they think the vaccine made them sick. For many reasons, least of which is the grinding social pressure of the mob to not say anything negative about this experience, worst of which are many people are cultish covid karen lunatics who wouldn’t accept the vaccine caused a reaction in them even if their skin was peeling off and a Pfizer ‘doctor’ was standing there explaining that it was indeed caused by the vaccine.

    Witness that reporter the other week who developed myocarditis then tweeted from her hospital bed how wonderful the vaccine is.

  129. Thus providing endless excuses as to why the vaccine could not have been the cause of the problem.

    ..
    No you fucking moron.
    Just if you use data, either use it correctly or don’t use it at all.
    Otherwise, just make up any shit you want to scare the old ladies, but don’t pretend it has anything to do with science or data.

  130. Millions more have been jabbed with the other proper vaccines over many more years,

    ..
    Then you can’t just look at the 13x jump as that is over 1 year.
    You have to sum the previous range and present it in a completely different way.
    Don’t fucking argue with me on this, Struth.
    My major was in mathematical modelling, this is something I actually know about.

    Arky, you are arguing from a fact based scientific standard.
    The vaccine brigade are NOT. They are using deception, omission, lies, suppression and shear overwhelming volume to shout you down and push the vaccine on people. They are using sophisticated psychological techniques of persuasion – Emotion often trumps logic.

  132. If you think you’re going to win a propaganda war worrying only about ‘data’ you’re mistaken. It didn’t work for climate change, and won’t work for this. Not that it’s not important to see reality with clear eyes and people who like diving into ‘data’ serve an important function for grounding and creating fodder for arguments. But ultimately as the climate wars have proven, ‘the data’ arguments only exist to service the polemical attacks, they never make a dent on their own, and worse provide fodder for your enemies who will take your deep careful analysis, reframe and desconstruct your analysis of their data which they control find the inevitable minor inconsistencies and things you have to explain, magnify them and declare to everyone “See? These people don’t know anything they’re talking about!” and move on having used their propaganda and institutional arms to destroy you and run you out of a job (Peter Ridd, etc).

    Stix – I don’t expect sympathy from anyone. Our justified anger needs to be directed towards those responsible for this fascist insanity – our beloved politico/bureaucrat/meeja class.

    Shorter – our beloved Brahman class

  134. They refer to a ‘boys club’. As if there is some special bond that men feel with other men merely because they are men, to keep women out regardless of who the woman is. Two guys who barely know each other will smile triumphantly upon excluding a woman who one or both of them might know well.

    I have seen such things depicted in movies. I have never seen it in my life.

    I have seen it and one of the blokes was the woman’s husband.

    Agree.
    The solution to that isn’t to do likewise.
    It’s to be precise and act in a trustworthy manner to inform those with an open mind.
    The rest can go to hell.

  136. Why would you fix a planet that has nothing wrong with it?

    Not saying it’s broken but could be improved by Removing some of the elite numpties going to Glasgow. Maybe there is a grant available..?

  137. When will the people of Australia wake up?

    Our governments , pollies and public servant swamps, are at war with us .
    Our known enemies are people like Jane Halton, Greg Hunt , all in the unconstitutional cabinet and are aiming to destroy Australia so it can be replaced.
    We have to suffer so we become compliant to everything, so we may just hope to survive on our bug ration.
    Sounds over the top.
    Sounds insane.
    Like killing people in the killing fields for wearing glasses.
    Like killing those of a particular race.
    Like experimental medical treatments ..people screaming in agony that caused us to sign the Nuremberg treaty.
    People are screaming in agony already, and they’ve only just got started.
    People at war kill their enemy.
    That’s exactly what they are doing.
    Stealing out wealth while they kill us and we help them kill our children with these totally unnecessary jabs for children that prove this is not about a virus.
    Scott Morrison is not weak, he is a traitor and at war with Australia.
    Isn’t it obvious?
    When people talk as if the businesses are stupid for mandating jabs, how subservient to the governments have these businesses become over the years?
    It’s a fact that business can be put out of action any time a government wants….even before lock downs and forced business closures occurred.
    The meeting in Scotland is a Davos meeting. A WEF war room gathering, to discuss the battle plans and logistics.
    And every night on shows like Alan Jones he and his letter writers ask why, why, why, why……..wwwwwwwhhhhhhyyyyy!
    Do people think that there has been a vaccine invented to stop the spread of traitors?
    Because like Covid, there has not been a vaccine invented to cure us of traitors either.

    And it’s all in the family.
    Here’s event 201 attendee Jane Halton, who’s brother in law is Brett Sutton.
    Remember me talking about her last year?

  138. Hmmm, shitstirring opportunity???

    our legal department just hit us with this..

    paraphrasing and selective cutting & pasting, just in case.

    Companies are required to keep proof of vax.
    Ooops, some confidential info which should only be used by medical people is on the vax certificate…

    The IHI ( Individual Health Identifier number (IHI)) uniquely identifies Australians for healthcare purposes in the same fashion that a Medicare number does and only health practitioners should maintain those numbers, this is known as the healthcare identifier act Healthcare Identifiers Act.

    Most companies are keeping full, unredacted copies of certificates… oops, illegal…

    But hey, we should totally let them introduce that “digital passport” idea eh?

  139. It’s a simple as this Arky.
    Millions more of all other jabs have been given over the years with hardly any deaths from them while reported in the same manner and under the same rules as the thousands of deaths that have occurred in only the last few months of these dead baby jabs.

    Maybe it is not a boys club. Maybe it is women who were elevated for their gender now being treated according to their talent

  141. Remember when monty was going to save the blog?

    Dot was a big meanie. “No, you should rooly let mUnter hElP oUt!!!1”

    That’s not really fair or accurate.
    Originally, the talk was to preserve and migrate Catallaxy, including its archives. Nobody had the server or the skills to do this. WordPress has a system for migration but for a blog of Old Cat’s size, it was close to impossible. Jacques couldn’t pull it off and he’s the tech guru.

    Monty offered to park the site on his server. That became a moot point when the old site was archived because anyone can set up a new site. But he did try to help when nobody else knew what the hell they were doing.

    The logic was simple – if you wore glasses, you could probably read, and if you could read, you might read enough to question the word of “Brother Number One” and his foul gang….

    However the DB605 in the Bf109 at the time when highly supercharged with MW and Nitrous oxide injection was said to have a life of around 10 hours.

    I’m fairly sure that Methanol/Water, Nitrous Oxide was only a war emergency boost and had a duration of about 20 30 seconds – along the same lines as the Spitfire.
    But you will find this interesting…
    A video by Mark Felton where the Germans captured an intact Spitfire and put a DB605A motor in it…

    ..
    We made progress in the climate debate by arguing the facts.
    Abbott was elected Prime Minister.
    Skepticism remains in the general public despite the propaganda from schools and media because our side was much more credible.
    We should exactly follow that formula forb this thing, and hope for the same success.

  146. This is a global supply chain crisis caused by a worldwide slow-motion, but accelerating collapse of globalisation. As the American economist Matt Stoller underlines, globalisation “has left us uniquely unprepared to manage a supply shock. Our hyper-efficient globalized supply chain, once romanticized by men like Tom Friedman in The World Is Flat, is the problem. Like the financial system before the 2008 crash, this kind of economic order hides its fragility. It seems to work quite well, until it doesn’t.” Now, we’re beginning to see what it looks like when it doesn’t.

    Internet protocol (IP) works along similar lines to just in time (JIT) manufacturing. However JIT has not evolved to deal with disruption. firstly IP has a buffer to account for minor variation in delivery times and secondly on major disruption applies an exponential back-off algorithm.

    In times of uncertainty, consumers apply their own buffering causing disorderly oscillations between over production and under production back up the supply chains.

  147. Which is irrelevant unless you know the increase in vaccinations due to covid vaxxes and the rate at which reports usually divided between verified and not.

    LOL. I wonder what happened between last year and this year that VAERS reports might increase 1300%? Golly, It’s a total mystery. Inscrutable. How could anyone ever even think that the advent of mRNA vaccines for the first time ever could have anything to do with it?

    Incidentally I suspect just about every American has had multiple vaccinations in their lifetimes. Fluvax, tetanus, MMR, childhood vaccinations – which are mandatory here. I don’t know if they are in the US. But none of those were mRNA of course.
