Trump was a disappointment who was too nice and didn’t realise the extent of the deep state.

Who did? Trump’s genius was revealing the fucking swamp.

He also got into too much debt and too much money was printed.

Compared to what. He oversaw the best US economy ever, brought industry and manufacturing back, increased employment amongst minorities to record levels, created a peaceful world and so on. He also took on the decadent and partisan media, which eventually beat him.

Trump was betrayed by the GOP.

Did he make mistakes: I rather think he was tricked by very nefarious forces. No one else could have done what he did.

I have said for a long time that “vaccine” was the wrong term.

Yep, they are deliberately stealing the (formerly) good name of vaccines to confer false authority on their new products

I always expected they would be very similar to the flu “vaccine”.

They are the same – ineffective products pushed annually onto people who don’t need them, under the false claim this stops grandma dying.

Requiring regular “boosters” which, again is the wrong term. They are more correctly described as annual “variant tailored” preventative measures.

Yep, I’ve taken to calling them ‘remedial shots’ and explaining that the dumb kids at school who are failing maths go into a ‘remedial class’ not a ‘booster’ class.

However, you’re showing a green colored certificate to a stranger. It is not showing the medical history contained in someone’s medicare account.

A lot of people have to show this “certificate” as a sign they were forced to do something by the government in order to keep a job and therefore keep the wolves from the door.
It is a physical symbol of state interference on the individual concerned and on society at large.
It’s the most anti libertarian thing one could think of.

COVID chasers’ trying to catch Omicron on purpose are ‘playing Russian roulette’, experts say

When the ABC’s “experts” advise you to do something, do the opposite or do nothing. In this instance, if you are at low risk of developing severe symptoms when infected with Covid (which would mean most of the population), deliberately infecting yourself with OMG seems to me to be an extremely prudent approach. Especially so if Delta is still on the scene. And anyone who has been paying attention to what genuine experts are saying about OMG symptoms, which are very different from previous variants, will be able to make the distinction.

From an “expert” advising against this:

We don’t yet know the longer-term full impact of viral infection with Omicron or other variants

Well, well. You’re being incredibly cautious here, given we also don’t yet know the longer-term full impact of the experimental gene therapy you’re insisting we pump into our bodies.

And someone who is more idiot than expert also weighed in:

Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned the practice on Thursday, saying contracting COVID once did not rule out getting reinfected.

Neither does getting juiced, so I will apply this logic consistently.

Another “expert” makes a heroic effort to include as many smears and talking points from the institutional Covid narrative as possible:

Epidemiologist Raina MacIntyre describes such “infection parties” as “straight from the anti-science, anti-vaxxer playbook”.

The professor of global biosecurity at UNSW says: “Those who deny science have been doing this for a century or more. Measles parties, chickenpox parties, and now COVID parties.

“Simultaneously we’ve seen propagation of disinformation like The Great Barrington Declaration and mainstreaming of their ‘herd immunity’ message.”

She has some better advice: “Only vaccines can provide herd immunity. Deliberately infecting yourself isn’t just junk science — it’s dangerous.

Only vaccines can provide herd immunity? Now, I admit I’m not a – I mean, the – professor of global biosecurity at a sandstone university, but I feel confident in saying the good professor is being very anti-science, a science denier and peddling in dangerous junk science by making such an obviously false statement. I wonder how carefully she has considered her position here, because if recovering from Covid does not confer natural immunity from the virus, then how do vaccines induce immunity? And not just Covid ‘vaccines’ – for all vaccines! This dangerous anti-science quack is a closet anti-vaxxer!

And just in case the reader isn’t aware of the Great Barrington Declaration, the article goes on to add:

Critics of The Great Barrington Declaration, an anti-lockdown open letter written by three academics from Harvard, Stanford and Oxford, have described it as a “global chickenpox party”.

Oooh, let’s play My Experts Are Better Than Yours – I like this game! On the one side, we have an epidemiologist and the professor of global biosecurity at the University of New South Where? – I mean Wales. And on the other, we have “three academics” from obscure tertiary institutions – perhaps they’re trade schools, who knows – has anyone heard of Harvard, Stanford and Oxford? Anyway, let’s find out a bit more about these three academics:

Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations.

Dr. Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist with expertise in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert focusing on infectious diseases and vulnerable populations.

The UNSW expert definitely trumps these three nobodies who wouldn’t know anything about infectious disease. They’re not experts at all. And anyway, she has seen through them and is onto their sinister game:

Dr MacIntrye says the declaration’s authors have a “eugenics agenda — survival of the fittest and ridding society of the weak”.

Wow. I’ve read the Great Barrington Declaration and I didn’t find a trace of that agenda anywhere in the text! It’s lucky this expert is such a big brain in calling these three rogues out, because if they came after her for defamation, she’d be able to rely on a truth defence in court by explaining how they have a “eugenics agenda” based upon the contents of the Great Barrington Declaration.

These “tests” for COVID – what do they actually detect? If it is the spike protein, how does it tell the difference between the COVID spike protein and the “vaccine” spike protein?

The PCRs detect a small specific fragment of the viral genome, so should NOT in of themselves turn positive in the presence of the S protein (leaving aside the argument that excessive test cycles can produce false positives irrespective of ANY such fragment being present.)

In contrast the RAT contains a test medium which captures SarsCov2 surface proteins and illuminates when it does. Whether this could result in a false + RAT is an interesting question. The best answer i could quickly find is that these vaccine induced spike proteins DO NOT produce such false positive RATs because they dont get into the respiratory mucosa which we are swabbing (whereas live virus in those tissues does). I am not 100% sure i buy that, but there you go.

Raina MacIntyre has a piece in The Saturday Paper about how Covid will never become endemic.

Denial of the science of epidemiology is widespread, even among “experts”. We are told repeatedly that SARS-CoV-2 will become “endemic”. But it will never be endemic because it is an epidemic disease and always will be. The key difference is spread. As an epidemic disease, SARS-CoV-2 will always find the unvaccinated, undervaccinated or people with waning immunity and spread rapidly in those groups. Typically, true epidemic infections are spread from person to person, the worst being airborne transmission, and display a waxing and waning pattern such as we have already seen with multiple waves of SARS-CoV-2. Cases rise rapidly over days or weeks, as we have seen with Alpha, Delta and Omicron. No truly endemic disease – malaria, for example – does this.

She is a vaxx spruiker, speaks of “Omicron” but says nothing about mutation and the inability of previous formulations to address other variants.

And she ignores the obvious – malaria exists in a narrow climatic band where its vector, the anopheles mosquito, lives and thrives.

I didn’t link – the article was published yesterday.

This is already happening.
We have gone from “I don’t know anyone who has had it” (which is a prime environment to cultivate fear) to the, dare I say it, “lived experience” of people either having it themselves or knowing a dozen people who have had it without dire consequences.

And of course, we have the ear-splitting squeal of “unfairness”. It wouldn’t be the Saturday Paper without it.

The least ambitious goal of vaccination is to prevent us from dying, and that is the low bar set in Australia. This has reduced policy outcomes to a false binary of dead or alive. There is no concern in this for First Nations people, the disabled, people with chronic medical conditions, people in remote Australia or even children, who are being sent back to school at the peak of the pandemic while primary-schoolers are largely unvaccinated. The hundreds of aged-care outbreaks pass without comment in what essentially has become survival of the fittest and richest.

She has some better advice: “Only vaccines can provide herd immunity. Deliberately infecting yourself isn’t just junk science — it’s dangerous.

Well I’m NOT a Perfessor of Global Biosecurity either, but I am a clinician with 32 years experience in medicine AND a (lowly) 1st class honours degree in Epidemiology, so might I respectfully remind Prof MacIntyre of the known pre-requisites for eliminating ANY human disease via vaccination? … and, as they say ‘compare the pair’.

1) There is no animal reservoir (otherwise it leaks back into the human population after you ‘eliminate’ it … oops – bats, pangolins, chickens, minks etc etc etc – )
2) The vaccine is fully ‘Sterilising’ (ie it stops the progress of the virus stone dead in every vaccinated person… oops)
2) It has a slow rate of mutation and you have the ability to very rapidly to vaccinate the whole world (otherwise it mutates around your vaccine before you get the whole population done, and you have to start again, Sydney Harbour Bridge style…)

But, as I said above, I’m not a perfessor

PS … My own experience with ‘covid parties’ is so far disappointing – I have spent literally hours face to face, in house and in vehicles with 4 families of symptomatic positives over the last 2 weeks , and cant even raise a sniffle 🙁

Interesting that JC says he was a virtual unknown on Wall St.
So, a renowned self-promoter who has his head in every photo at 11:00 p.m. suddenly becomes a shy wallflower the following morning at 10:00 a.m. and keeps all his big business deals under wraps?
Pull the other one.
The point is, Epstein would have been on the radar of security services on both sides of the Atlantic and Andy would have had the rare privilege of being privy to that intel.
I daresay it was done very discreetly, probably via Phil the Greek.
But Andy pushed away the life preserver thrown to him and kept swimming down the sewer. Because muh friends. And, unlike the Windsors, they recognised how bwilliant and clever and witty I am.

A few days ago I posted some information abut a little 3 y/o who died ‘with’ covid. He had the dreadful Niemann-Pick disease and his life expectancy was very limited. Poor little bugger apparently got covid from a health worker visiting his home.

Anyway, two days ago I saw this immunologist on the ABC and she was saying how covid was a dire threat to all children and then “of course, we saw a very young child die from covid just a couple of days ago…..”

I was soooo angry. You despicable heartless slag. The worst that could be said was that he died with covid, not from covid. But to use the child’s tragic pre-existing health condition to promote a false narrative that may alarm young parents is a disgrace. You should be ashamed of yourself. And the ABC interviewer let it pass without comment.

I only mention this now as I have been brooding on the matter for a couple of days.

Virginia Governor Youngkin Signs 11 Executive Actions on His First Day in Office

Glenn Youngkin, Virginia’s first Republican Governor in more than a decade, wasted no time addressing his campaign pledges, signing nine executive orders and two executive directives. Within hours of being sworn in, Youngkin:

1. Banned the use of CRT and other inherently divisive concepts in schools;
– Executive Order 1

2. Ended school mask mandates;
– Executive Order 2

3. Terminated the entire Parole Board of the Commonwealth of Virginia (all were Democratic appointees);
– Executive Order 3

4. Initiated an investigation into Loudoun County;
Executive Order 4

5. Established the position of Chief Transformation Officer to review all government agencies, beginning with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Virginia Employment Commission;
– Executive Order 5

6. Declared Virginia open for business and initiated a review of burdensome Covid regulations;
Executive Order 6

7. Established a commission prevent human trafficking and provide support to survivors;
– Executive Order 7

8. Established a commission to combat antisemitism;
– Executive Order 8

9. Withdrew from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI);
– Executive Order 9

10. Directed all Executive Branch entities to reduce job-killing regulations by at least 25 percent;
– Executive Directive 1

11. Rescinded the vaccine mandate for all state employees.
– Executive Directive 2

@Maximus_4EVR adds:

“Meanwhile, new Attorney General Jason Miyares (who was also just sworn in) has terminated the entire Civil Rights Division of the AG’s Office (many of them Soros backed lawyers). YOWZA! ?

That was a MASS firing within a few moments of being sworn in. The MSM are calling it ‘insane’ and ‘mean.’

AG Miyares also warned all county prosecutors he will be pursuing charges for crimes they refuse to file charges for themselves. This is a warning to local VA DAs not to do what NY’s DA is doing.

Shades of a post ‘Election 2022’ world?”

I was watching a show the other night on, I think, SBS on Demand called “The Backside of TV” or somesuch.
It was obviously 6 – 12 months old, for reasons I will come to in a minute.
The guy was red-hot on bagging two things:-
.1 True crime TV (see post below);
.2 Commercial TV current affairs shows.
He was banging on about how Channel Nein and Seven attacked “fringe views” like those of Pete Evans but they ran a show suggesting bat-flu came out of the Wuhan Lab.
Which he declared also a “fringe view” which should be debunked.
That declaration hasn’t aged well.

I lost count, but the host must have referred to “convicted cocaine dealer and discredited lawyer, Andrew Fraser” possibly ten times.
He also correctly pointed out that, in two separate TV outings, Fraser has promised “stunning new evidence”.
Which hasn’t surfaced after two years.
Hi egg_ly!
Mind you, if the host wanted to be even-handed about True Crime shows containing traces of bullshit, he could have devoted time to similar non-existant “stunning new evidence” in the Kelli Lane case, or possibly some of Seven-Nilligan’s flights of fancy.

We aren’t. We’re allowing strangers to look at a medical certificate which in most cases is a green rectangle on a iphone.

The “MyHealthRecord” was far more insidious in terms of allowing any Elf Perfessional to look up detailed individual records.
That was about to slide through unnoticed until there was an outcry and they hastily pulled together the “opt out” option.
As petty as it sounds, the clincher for me was a neighbour who was a part-time ambo and who was also a fulltime town gossip.
I knew full well he would be looking up everyone in town on day one.
The fucking idiot got all antsy:-
Ambo : “What about if you’re in a car accident, and the ambos want to know your blood type?”
Me : “Firstly, blood type isn’t routinely recorded, is it? And secondly, do you carry bags of all blood types in the meat waggon?”
Silence.
Fuck, I wouldn’t mind if information is shared between my GP, Specialists, dentists, and anyone I have a direct professional relationship with.
But do I want some Nurse Karen seeing my name on Facebook and looking me up?

And before Googlery starts banging on about “safeguards”, we all know that the number of Elf Perfessionals disciplined for improper access at the end of the first decade of operation would be approximately zero.

Australian politicians take note – this is how it’s done!

We may have exactly this standard of leader, were we to make two radical changes:
1/. Public primaries.
2/. Premier decided by statewide vote.

Currently:
1/. Pre-selection done by party committees, often the the same committee of a half-dozen deciding the candidates for the entire state, or even at times a committee two states away deciding a federal candidate.
2/. Premiers govern only with the consent of the majority of those their party’s committee got elected.
One step out of line & there’s a “challenge”
This makes it possible for an advocacy group to replace the Premier via a social media pressure campaign on a few backbenchers in marginal seats.

Yep, I would agree to their “correct” answer.

I reckon they’re conflating illegal child abuse with consensual (legal or not) prostitution acts – or different crimes, sex trafficking, but not of children (at the time of the later offences).

1000 acts of abuse is terrible, but 5000? I just doubt that many obviously young prostitutes exist. Sorry, I just don’t think that many pedophiles exist.

It might be inflated if they claim to be minors when their abusers are caught – I am only 15 and my family were killed before the coyotes transported me to the house of ill repute. Um, if her family sold her (or they went willingly) and the US have no records, how are you going to send her back unless other victims or the abusers give up intel?

https://screenrant.com/the-simpsons-movie-jokes-aged-poorly-hold-up-today/

He says that he needs to confess something, and this is where Homer ends up bringing in a poor joke. He can be quietly heard praying that Ned’s confession will be him being gay. It’s something that doesn’t hold up, as jokes about sexuality are never funny, and it doesn’t make Homer look like the hero character he should be.

“Oh no…”

The size of her boobs is something that Homer points out plenty of times, and it is something that ends up being used to point out the direction that Homer should be walking as they sway in the wind. It’s objectifying and isn’t a good look for the movie at all.

“Oh no…”

Ned Flanders is always a worrier, and that often leads to some funny moments, but when he is concerned about Bart and Homer’s behavior on the roof in this movie, it leads to an out-of-taste comment. Bart is hanging onto the gutters when Homer begins to shake it, with Ned panicking that Bart could fall to the floor.

“Oh no…”

This is a funny moment until Bart skates past Ralph Wiggum, who proclaims that he likes men now after seeing him naked. It’s yet another joke about sexuality that hasn’t aged well and actually hurts the movie more than anything.

“Oh no…”

He responds by saying that is the worst of all the colors, and then Carl is shown next to him, where Lenny states that he means no offense as Carl says people say it all the time. While Lenny claiming he doesn’t mean offense is obviously done to cover their backs, it is a clear attempt at making racism a joke, and it’s something that doesn’t age well at all.

“Oh no…”

Now this is one I found:

[Marge, Lisa, and Maggie are still scrubbing rocks at Baby Seal Beach]
Lisa: Oh, there’s something unsatisfying about scrubbing these rocks and I think I know what it is. [a wave washes a new coat of oil on the once-clean rocks]
Marge: Lisa, I know it’s frustrating, but we made a commitment, and we have to see it through, no matter how unpleasant.
[the cleanup guy drives up]
Man: Quitting time. Okay. Scrub up and head for the communal tarp. We’re having kelpburgers, and we’re going to watch a tape of Johnny Arvik, he’s the Eskimo comedian.
[Marge and Lisa stare at him for a moment; scene cuts to them driving away]
Lisa: Faster, Mom, faster!

It’s still funny.

Alice Springs just went into lockout for seven days.

The Deputy CHO quite shamelessly said it was to prevent overwhelming the Alice Springs Hospital, which is already overwhelmed with pisswrecks and victims of tribal bashings and mutilations, as well as the standard eight-deep crowd of domestic violence victims.

Again, this is rapidly becoming about preventing the exposure of incompetent and wilful medical bureaucrats than actual public health.

Incidentally, Alice Springs ‘health professionals’ are known to be rabidly activist. There are very well placed sources that indicate that hand-patting medical staff leaked Constable Zachary Rolfe’s home address to family members of the career criminal he shot and killed, and while Rolfe was in hospital getting his stab wound stitched.

This would explain why Rolfe’s Alice Springs house was trashed and burnt, which unsurprisingly hasn’t shown up in the MSM.

So. Self interest is number one. Hand-patters gotta handpat.

“Look, I can see Cassie’s presumption of innocence argument, but I don’t totally buy it.”

The reason why I feel strongly about this is that I’m tired of seeing men lynched….Pell, Porter and so on. I think Andrew is a particularly ghastly, money loving git with an outrageous sense of entitlement. As I wrote the other day, he was easy prey for someone like Epstein to latch on to because both Andrew and his equally ghastly ex-wife are very shallow individuals and they just love the dosh. And I agree that Andrew would have been warned numerous times about his association with Epstein but you see, such is Andrew’s grotesque arrogance and his need for lotsa money, he no doubt ignored those warnings.

And note how no one is speaking up for Andrew….in fact the knives are out for him. If Andrew was better liked I doubt very much we’d be witnessing such jubilation over his sacking from the royal firm.
One thing is clear, nobody likes him.

I’ll say it again, I don’t care whether he’s the most awful person on the planet, everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence.

Duk,
I think the media scumbags , prompted by our Govt parasites will energetically mobilise to mitigate any message that even hints at holding them responsible for the horrible damage they have inflicted on us. That will result public opinion remaining wedded to nanny “Govt has saved us”. That realization you speak of will be very difficult to identify among the numpty proles. We return to normal broadcasting, until the next crisis we need saving from arrives.

The number of people who will admit to making a mistake is miniscule. This will apply to handing over freedom to health tyranny as well. There will be all sorts of “reasons” for submitting.

I can think of a few to excuse my own actions and attitudes. They all seem quite reasonable to me, but to others here…not so much. However, self-awareness is not a strong suit generally.

The whole walkback will have to be couched in doublespeak because anything else will cause utter havoc. The politicians know this and want to protect their skins. The longer they leave it, the smaller the window of protection gets.
