Guest post: Hugh – A redraft of the Australian Government’s COVID letter

Dear Australian,

To protect yourself, your loved ones and your community, we urge you not to get your COVID-19 vaccination which is available to you right now.

Australia has done piss-poor with the dual challenges of the alleged “pandemic” and its economic consequences because every gullible Australian has followed the “expert” health advice and “cared” for each other. Sure, other countries may have done even worse, but it’s not a race to the bottom!

The Zelenko Protocol

Donald Trump stands outside the White House giving a thumbs up

I mentioned a while back that Donald Trump while President – and thus before any of the vaxxines had been developed – had had Covid himself and was over it within a couple of days. I speculated that he might have used Ivermectin or HCQ but did not know. Apparently, he had followed what is known as The Zelenko Protocol which includes the following for “Moderate/High Risk Patients”.

  • Elemental Zinc 50-100mg once a day for 7 days
  • Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day for 7 days
  • Vitamin D3 10000iu once a day for 7 days or 50000iu once a day for 1-2 days
  • Azithromycin 500mg 1 time a day for 5 days or
  • Doxycycline 100mg 2 times a day for 7 days
  • Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 2 times a day for 5-7 days and/or
  • Ivermectin 0.4-0.5mg/kg/day for 5-7 days Either or both HCQ and IVM can be used, and if one only, the second agent may be added after about 2 days of treatment if obvious recovery has not yet been observed etc.

Please do note that HCQ and Ivermectin had been part of the protocol.

This is what was reported at the time by our ABC: Donald Trump has finished his COVID-19 treatment, but has he recovered? He certainly has recovered, which is precisely why the ABC never again examined the story. They would rather that people should die than Donald Trump be proven right. These people are very sick puppies not to mention how evil they are.

Interaction with a pleasant cop

I was pulled up by the police this morning for not wearing a mask. Walking down a lane at the back of the apartment building in which I live, I spotted a police car. The policemen looked directly at me. Unmasked, I looked back thinking I might be operating within the NSW law. I quite honestly don’t know. My aging brain can’t keep up with the changes. Is this a possible defence?

Of course, everyone outside was masked but then most were masked before the recent tightening of the rules. Anyway, nothing happened and I walked on to my local café and ordered a coffee. And there was the police car again. It had snuck up on me. This time I knew I was breaking the law – loitering unmasked immediately outside a café. He called over to me. “Put your mask on.”

“Sorry I forgot,” I said and put on my mask. We waved to each other and he drove off. Strictly speaking he could have fined me $500. That’s the fine set my local member Gladys Berejiklian whose role, I seem to recall, is to represent my interests. Ah well.

If we leave aside the useless and demeaning imposition of masks, the story is a good one. Old style community policing. He operated within the law. He was civil. And implicitly issued a warning rather than a fine. Is there hope in there for us?

The missus was back at the dentist yesterday and on the drive back home she told me about the conversation she was privy to between the Doc and the nurse. They were trying to calm her down I guess by playing at idle banter and I reckon they may have had the same conversation 3 times that day already. But anyway, the Doc asked the nurse what she missed most during the lockdown.

Browsing in shops apparently, and the Doc said he missed his best mate’s wedding. He missed that, and he hates feeling like a criminal every time he takes a stroll with his kiddies.

In the car on the way home, my missus told me, mumbly-numbly that she missed Op Shops.

It got me thinking too about what I miss most.

Normalcy, I miss.

Not life without a coronavirus, I mean life with its fickle ups and downs where you plan, strategise, labour, strive.  A life with choices you got to make for your own good, the family’s good, for the industry, the market, Australia, the planet …whatever.

Choice is gone and has been replaced by clumsy autocracy.

1 person per 4 m2 … like it’s always been? I see in the news today that, in NSW if you find yourself locked up/down in a council flat … it’s rationing. One six-pack, per punter, per day.

That’s not normal.

Mater’s Musings #20: Did you know?

Did you know that by this time in 2019 (the year before Covid), 662 Australians had died of the Flu, since the start of that year?

…and it wasn’t the worst year we’d had in the last five.

Source: AUSTRALIAN INFLUENZA SURVEILLANCE REPORT No. 10, 2019

Even by government admission, that 662 “associated deaths reported to the NNDSS, does not represent the true mortality associated with this disease. The number of deaths is reliant on the follow up of cases to determine the outcome of their infection. The follow up of cases is not a requirement of notification, and are only inclusive of laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza.”

Of those, 135 were subtyped and 28 proved to be from A(H1N1)pdm09.

That’s right! That sneaky little bastard Swine Flu from 2009. It’s been with us ever since.

If the distribution holds, that means approximately 139 of those 662 flu deaths were from just the Swine Flu variant.

Did you know that 151 people, in total, have died from Covid-19 this year in Australia?

662 dead…”Meh!”

151 dead…”Arghhhh…MY HAIR IS ON FIRE!!! Quick, destroy everything!”

Perspective people, perspective.

Guest post: Tim Neilson – Happiness in captivity

On 24 September 2021 it will be exactly 40 years since the Australian release of the film Chariots of Fire. As a young track and field athlete at the time I was very taken by the film, and various subsequent coincidences and connections involving my father and me (both Scottish descended Christians who had run the 400 – well, in his case the 440 yards) have made it resonate with me even more over the years. And while we are enduring indefinite house arrest at the hands of our own governments, part of the back story is as inspiring to me as the main events.

As alluded to in the film, Eric Liddell was a missionary in China, and in the early 1940’s was interned by the invading Japanese, eventually dying in a prison camp in 1945.

Mater’s Musings #19: If only it had a QR Code attached

Source: dominiqueb

I’ve seen plenty of these in my travels in less than salubrious locations (the military tend not to send people to London, Paris or the Greek Islands).

It’s indeed unfortunate that the governments of these places didn’t have the electronic means to attach a QR Code to this sign and link it to every tourist’s private information. They could have provided the ‘proprietors’ the means to enforce this ‘libertarian’ edict.
