The National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce (NCCET) very recently updated its Ivermectin guidance (h/t: Muddy on the OOT). Apart from the standard mention of the ‘dangers’ of ivermectin, they write:
The certainty of the current evidence base varies from low to very low depending which on outcome is being measured, as a result of serious risk of bias and serious imprecision in the 18 included studies.
But they don’t actually mention which studies they’ve included. However, they Continue reading “Which 18 studies?”
Five million Melburnians will be freed from a months-long lockdown this week after the Victorian government accelerated the easing of restrictions, citing new modelling which has drastically cut projections for hospitalisations.
This was the lead para in the front page story in The Oz today: Melbourne lockdown: Vaccine surge delivers freedom for five million people. New modelling! That is, up until now their calculations have been wrong and they now have an improved calculation. Any chance of an apology?
What a despicable crew of incompetents! The real change is in the government in NSW which has led the way. Dan had little choice but to follow along.
URGENT: You have until 5pm 27 Oct to ‘’have your say’’ against the ‘’Trusted Digital Identity Bill’’ currently being proposed by the (Liberal) Government of Australia. This Bill has been deliberately kept quiet and it is now at Stage 3. Stages 1 and 2 have been passed. Stage 3 means the public has an opportunity to voice opposition to it. If we as Australians do not speak out against this Bill, the Government will assume that our silence is consent. This is a fact not rhetoric. They are proposing Facial Recognition, amongst other things. It will affect the way we shop., it also allows for our locations to be constantly monitored – more so than now.

“The fact is most people threw their lot in with the Man long ago. Credit cards, mortgages, the o/seas holidays, keeping up with the Joneses. Debt up to the eyeballs. To service it there can be no interruption whatsoever to income. Then there is the family ties spread across the wide brown land. That’s life as we know it and for it to continue the turds governing us know the vast majority will comply just to get on with it. The bud has blossomed and died long ago.”
In maybe 2014, I woke one morning with a premonition. Well, a hunch … or maybe a clue.
There is a fundamental difference between authoritarian regimes of the right, and authoritarian regimes such as we are currently experiencing from the left.
But first, imagine a person who is a hypothetical perfect moral person in touch with God or some universal arbiter of good and evil. Imagine that there can be a left wing or a right wing version of such a thing. This person always does the right thing, even at the cost of breaking rules or laws.
A right wing version of this would be the original Dirty Harry, who when Scorpio had a young victim buried in a hole and running out of air, Harry ignored rules, the rights of the criminal, and even his own career, to beat the location of the girl out of the crim.
Because right wing regimes care about law and order, we can say that in this case Dirty Harry is acting as a perfect moral person substitute for a right wing regime.
And it is this that is a difference between left wing authoritarians and right wing authoritarians. We can imagine individual people driven by a moral imperative to act as a substitute for the things a right wing regime might want to achieve, But there is no such possibility with left wing regimes.
Take Stalin forcing industrialisation by taking all the grain off Ukrainian peasants to send to cities and overseas, making them sell every last grain to a centralised authority and thus causing mass starvation. Is there an analogous possible to imagine person who could commit an individual act to achieve likewise? No, there just isn’t an individual act that corresponds to mass starvation.
Abortion is another example that explains this difference. One could imagine an individual who discovers an abortion clinic like that Gosnell fellow’s and responds by taking the dude out with extreme prejudice if the law refuses to intervene. However, there is no counter case where a left winger could possibly think of a moral case, even from a left perspective, where it would work to break the law to kidnap some preggo woman off the street and abort her baby.
There are however cases where left regimes do such things on a regime wide level. For example, China’s one child policy. Now look at the regime level right extreme on abortion: Even when a right regime makes it illegal or extremely difficult to abort children, no one can actually physically force a woman to take a baby full term. It’s not possible. Now you might think that a Victorian era backyard abortionist is a left wing example of a perfect moral person (from the left viewpoint) breaking laws in an individual effort that achieves the same result as a left wing regime might by fiat. But this is not the case, because they were butchers who left many woman dead from infections and were motivated by profit, not morality.
Try it for yourself. Think of any thing that can be broken down into left and right, and try to think of ways in which a left wing person could act individually from a moral perspective in it’s name. It doesn’t exist.
It is because the right acts from an individual perspective and the left collectivise everything, that it is impossible for a leftist to act individually to further their causes from a moral perspective.
This is why leftist regimes tend harder to authoritarianism and stay there longer than right regimes. The left agenda does not lend itself to individual acts of moral courage.
In other words, the goal of the left in all things is to collectivise: collective guilt, collective ownership, group identity. You cannot achieve a collectivist goal through individualistic action. This is why, even in their authoritarian guises, the left and the right are fundamentally different and manifest themselves in completely different ways.
Dr. John Campbell talks with Dr. Pieter Gaillard about the importance of aspirating when injecting mRNA (Pfizer/ Moderna)/ viral vector (AstraZeneca) vaccines and the role of lipid ‘nanoparticles’ in each of them. None of the clinical trials investigated this aspect. They just treated them as classical vaccines.
This is without doubt an experiment conducted en masse without the knowledge or consent of most participants.
Question for those vaxxed: did the vaccinator aspirate to check they were indeed injecting the vaccine into your muscle and not into a blood vessel or did they not?
Over the last two years since the covid mania began we have endured regular flights over my suburb by the police air wing.
That it is a frequent event to go outside, in your own yard and be subject to Mogadishu type overwatch by our pathetic wannabe paramilitary police farce is disgusting.
That we are becoming used to being treated like the residents of a Judge Dredge Mega city on the cusp of civil war is deranged. These people are deranged.
Today they were doing slow laps of my suburb yet again. I went out to look and shook my fist at the thing. You can see in the photo above exactly what I was confronted by overhead at low altitude. It promptly began circling around my house, and then in what can only be an attempt at intimidation, hovered directly over my home where myself, my wife and young daughter live.
What possible role these aerial pigs are playing over sleepy outer suburban homes on a Sunday morning is a complete mystery.
Vicpol idiots: Your demented over policing of covid and your arrogance has lost you many friends. Keep it up and it will be 100 years before any member of the public welcomes your presence.
When you give young men millions of dollars of technology, put them literally above the citizens, let them use it at their own discretion, allow a culture of contempt for “civilians”, here’s a hint: they act up badly.
They will, eventually be held to account by a legal, correct and democratically elected people. So too will the “leadership” that allowed and encouraged this. So enjoy your little thrills today boys. You are not soldiers, you aren’t Dirty Harry, and this isn’t a movie.
