Italian Constitutional Court Upholds the Vax Mandate

Back in October the new Italian government under Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni pledged to overturn the “vaccine” mandate introduced by the previous government under Mario Draghi. However, the country’s Constitutional Court has just ruled that the vax mandate is constitutional, and must remain in place.

The following Italian video features commentary about the Constitutional Court’s action, which the commentator sees as a purely political decision.

The East is Dead

H. Numan, who is based in Bangkok, sends this report on the current socio-political crisis in China.

The East is Red Dead

by H. Numan

Football is a sport. Sometimes a deadly sport. I’m talking of course about what Americans call soccer and the rest of the world football. It even caused a war in 1969. Right now, it’s causing massive uprisings in China. Something nobody, least of all Chinese censors, could foresee. Likely with deadly consequences for the entire world.

Football is hugely popular in China. The Qatar World Championships are shown live on Chinese TV. The censors clearly forgot that TV cameras will show not just the players, but also the crowds. Who are sitting side by side, shoulder to shoulder, without wearing masks. Chinese citizens are not stupid. They probably heard stories about the West being no longer in lockdown. Now they see those ‘wild conspiratorial rumors’ confirmed. By their own government.

At the same time an unfortunate accident happened in Xinjiang. A building caught fire while the city was under lockdown. The residents were welded inside their building. Literally. Municipal workers welded the doors and the locks shut. That happens a lot during Chinese lockdowns. The people had no way to escape the fire, and firemen couldn’t enter the building. Ten people lost their lives.

The news of the fire combined with the championships made the population explode in anger. Ordinary Chinese citizens could see with their own eyes, on state TV, that the outside world was okay after Covid. All their suffering and hardship was, and is, in vain.

This is by far the biggest crisis the Chinese Communist Party has faced since Tiananmen Square in 1989. It may very well grow into something much bigger, because the Tiananmen Square riots were not widespread. Only some students revolted, and only in Beijing and a few other large cities. With, at that time, nearly a billion people, ‘some’ students does quickly add up. Also, nobody outside university campuses knew about Tiananmen Square. It could be controlled. The current riots are all over the country, by enraged ordinary citizens.

There is no formal cadre or leadership in this outburst. People have simply had enough. All over China riots are flaring up. So far, nothing that the police can’t handle. Demonstrating in China is highly illegal. Any gathering of more than a few people is closely watched, and often dispersed quickly by the authorities. Even if it is a ‘long live Xi Jinping!‘ demonstration. With extreme violence, if that becomes necessary. That’s the situation the authorities face right now. How to handle it? Difficult to say. Normally the riot police would be sent in. That probably would make things far worse, causing more and much bigger riots.

They could give in, and ease the Covid lockdown regulations. However, that will very quickly cause more problems. You see, China isn’t a superpower. It is a lower income country with a huge population, some nukes and a very bad public health system. Under the most oppressive regime since Mao.

Xi Jinping, the present chairman just got his tenure extended. He is effectively president-for-life. Technology gave him much more of a grip on society than was possible under Mao or even in the DDR. With much Western support, by means of Apple, Google, Facebook and Twitter, China was able to control its population to an extent few people in the West would think possible. Xi Jinping used it to build his own power base. Don’t believe a word of anti-corruption in China. It’s as hollow and meaningless as anti-corruption in Thailand. In Asia, notably China, corruption is endemic. Built into the system. Anti-corruption simply means replacing corrupt officials with your own cronies.

The Lying Liars of Pfizer

The following German-language report discusses the determination by a British medical oversight board that the Pharma giant Pfizer/BioNTech had elided the truth just a wee bit in its promotion of Corona “vaccines” for kids.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Boris Reitschuster’s website. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Pfizer advertised child vaccination with misleading claims

British regulator confirms breaches of code of ethics

You have to give Uğur Şahin (BioNTech) and Albert Bourla (Pfizer) one thing. The CEOs of the two pharmaceutical giants have never lacked a rock-solid belief in their own products. The “vaccination hero” (Bild) from Mainz was already absolutely certain in February 2021 that vaccinated people would no longer be infected. At the time, nobody wanted to know where Şahin got this conviction from, especially since the “constant questioning” of everything related to Corona had long been considered unacceptable at that point.

Similarly, in late 2021 Albert Bourla rushed to the public in Great Britain with exclusive insights into childhood vaccination. On December 2, 2021, in an interview with the BBC, the Pfizer CEO claimed that children between the ages of five and eleven would particularly benefit from the vaccine. “In my opinion, the benefits are entirely in favour of vaccinating children in this age group against Covid-19,” Bourla was quoted as saying at the time. Corona is spreading rapidly in schools, the Pfizer boss asserted in one of the most capital misjudgments of the entire “pandemic”. Only the coming years and decades will probably show what damage was really caused by this.

But that’s how it was back then, in December 2021. As long as it fit the narrative, everything could be said and asserted. Even Albert Bourla’s obvious bias in making such statements or the fact that child vaccination was not yet approved at that time hardly seemed to bother anyone at the time either.

Parent initiative goes to the barricades

The only resistance worth mentioning came from the group “UsForThem”. This parents’ initiative had been founded in Great Britain just a few months earlier to draw attention to the considerable disadvantages children suffered as a result of the Corona measures. In the unsubstantiated statements of the Pfizer CEO, the parents saw a “disgraceful misleading” with “extreme advertising character,” and submitted a complaint to the British Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA). There is simply no evidence that healthy children in the UK are at significant risk from Corona, argued UsForThem. Claiming or suggesting such a thing is a breach of several clauses of the British Pharmaceutical Industry Association (ABPI) code of ethics. [To break a code of ethics, you need to have them to start off with, something, I’m pretty sure, Albert Bourla does not have or has ever possessed.]

As The Telegraph reports, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) only emphasized in September 2021, just over two months before the controversial BBC interview, that the benefit of child vaccination was to be regarded as “small” for healthy ones, and children are hardly at risk from the virus. Regardless of this, the first young people in Great Britain were vaccinated from the beginning of October 2021, initially without an official recommendation from the supervisory authority. For children aged five to eleven, this only followed in February 2022, but with the express proviso that the last word must always lie with the parents.

PMCPA upholds parent’s complaint

Taking into account all of these and some other aspects, the PMCPA considered the parents’ initiative’s complaint in the spring of 2022 to be justified. In particular, it was found that the pharmaceutical industry’s code of ethics had been breached on a number of occasions, including by misleading the public, making false claims and failing to present information in a factual and balanced manner.

“Completely Ignoring Science and Medicine”

A Japanese scientist named Masanori Fukushima, a professor emeritus at Kyoto University, recently caused a major controversy when he appeared on television and upbraided the country’s medical establishment for its dishonesty and negligence concerning the experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus. He particularly excoriated them for ignoring the evidence of serious adverse side effects, including death, from the vax.

Who You Gonna Believe? Me or Your Lyin’ Eyes?

I posted on Saturday about the COVID-related news concerning the famous German virologist Christian Drosten. Now Mr. Drosten is in the news again, due to what was apparently a little white lie about his participation in a conspiracy to suppress information concerning the laboratory origin of the Wuhan Coronavirus.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Pleiteticker.de:

New explosive emails surfaced: did Christian Drosten lie about secret agreements?

by Janina Lionello

At the beginning of the year, the virologist Christian Drosten swore under oath that he had never tried to cover up a possible laboratory origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. E-mails that have now been published suggest that this is not true.

The most explosive passage is hidden on page 59 of the 174-page dossier. “Didn’t we join forces to challenge and, if possible, reject a particular theory?” it says. The message was written by Christian Drosten on February 9, 2020, and it refers to a conference call in which several scientists discussed a possible laboratory origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The journalist Jimmy Tobias received the bundled emails on November 22 with the help of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and published them online as “Farrar Fauci Comms”).

So, Drosten speaks here quite openly of the collusion of several international scientists in order to systematically discredit the laboratory theory.

The words also cry out for an explanation from Drosten, because in February 2022 he had taken legal action against the Hamburg physics professor Roland Wiesendanger, who had accused Drosten of precisely such a secret collusion. At the time, Drosten swore: “During my participation, no agreement was made to cover up the possibility of a laboratory origin in public. I am also not aware that such an appointment was made at a later date.”

Wiesendanger sees his assumption that scientists agreed in February 2020 to “cover up” a possible laboratory origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by the current publication, as he explained to Pleiteticker.de. He also wants to keep further legal action against Drosten open — including the “disclosure and prosecution of potentially criminal acts at an international level.”

Is the “Pandemic” Over? Maybe, Maybe Not

I thought the Great Corona Pandemic was so 2021. Didn’t everyone already get over it? Even President Biden said it was over!

The famous German virologist Christian Drosten, however, can’t make up his mind.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from JournalistenWatch:

What a realization: Drosten sees signs that the pandemic will end soon

Berlin

One had already hoped that this worthy gentleman would finally have disappeared into the obscurity he deserved (or even better: been taken to court), and now he still speaks up and informs his audience of his superfluous wisdom:

The virologist Christian Drosten sees the rapid succession of the latest Corona waves as a sign that the pandemic will end soon. Whether next winter will be hard again depends on which Omicron variant of the virus prevails, he told the weekly newspaper Die Zeit. Two variants are about to start: BF.7 and BQ.1.1. “BF.7 would be the better case; this variant is very similar to BA.5, which a large part of the population is already immune to. Then there would be a gentle winter wave.” This wave would differ from all previous ones and would no longer be caused by a significant change in the virus: “It would then no longer be a pandemic wave,” said Drosten. “We would have arrived in the endemic state with BF.7.”

But the virologist is still hesitating, with good reason, to commit to his prognosis: “It would not be so clear with BQ.1.1, because there is additional immune escape here.” The virus can escape the immune system of those who are already infected or better, vaccinated. And, in fact, BQ.1.1 is catching up in several European countries.

“If it becomes dominant, winter could become difficult again.” In the short term, the virologist from the Berlin Charité does not believe that a significantly more dangerous variant of Sars-CoV-2 will occur. “At many points in its evolution, the virus cannot easily go back.”

However, the virologist does not want to completely rule out a possible scenario: “It would take a kind of revolution, through renewed massive spread somewhere in the world.” His current concern is China. “Immunity is distributed quite homogeneously worldwide, in industrialized countries through infection through vaccination, in poorer countries even through multiple infections of the population. In China, however, that is not the case. I wouldn’t rule out another leap happening there in terms of evolution.”

China as the source of all evil, even though they pull off the most brutal zero-Covid act. Who would have thought it?

Sudden Death

Below is the recently-released documentary video Died Suddenly. It concerns the worldwide surge of excess deaths that has been underway since the rollout of the experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus.

This documentary focuses primarily on the strange elongated rubbery “blood clots” that have frequently been found in the blood vessels of deceased people by undertakers and embalmers, beginning when the vax was first introduced. The accounts given by multiple embalmers about the clots, and the visual evidence of the clots themselves, are what make the video so valuable — the independent testimony from so many witnesses is difficult to refute.

The rest of the footage contains a lot of sensationalized material, including clips of people who collapse suddenly. Some of these may be fakes, and some samples were definitely taken from videos that predate the COVID hysteria. But the sections featuring the embalmers are convincing, and very important.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video. WARNING: some of the autopsy footage is graphic, and sensitive viewers may find it disturbing:

Mandatory Vaccination? Never Mind!

The German health authorities have finally realized the uselessness of the experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus, and will not renew the “vaccine” mandate. Everyone else reached the same conclusion a year and a half ago, but the wheels of God grind slowly.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the German-language service of the Epoch Times:

Lauterbach: Vaccination does not protect against infection — vaccination obligation no longer applies

The Minister of Health is re-evaluating the vaccines with consequences for the institution-related vaccination mandate. Critics have been complaining about this for months.

Up until now, Health Minister Karl [“Klaboosterbach”] Lauterbach (SPD) has been a vehement advocate of compulsory vaccination in the nursing professions. One of Lauterbach’s main arguments was that the Corona vaccines protect against infection and guarantee milder courses. Now, however, there are new statements from the Minister of Health: “The vaccination no longer protects against infection. If it no longer protects against infection, then there is no longer any reason for it in these facilities,” Lauterbach told ZDF.

The Minister of Health adds that the “new variants” of the coronavirus in particular “cannot be detected” by the current vaccine. “That means you can still get infected, which will probably also apply to the BQ1.1 variant.”

The BQ1.1 variant is an Omicron subvariant and is considered to be more contagious than the Omicron variant. It is currently spreading in Europe as well as in the USA. The Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) justifies the expiry of the vaccination requirement for this new variant: “We expect that variant BQ1.1 or similar variants will dominate the infection process at the turn of the year,” said a spokesman for the BMG. However, the vaccination does not protect against infection with the variant.

As recently as two weeks ago, on November 8th, Lauterbach tweeted that the current vaccines would also work well with new variants. However, our Minister of Health does not see any reason to do without the injections entirely. According to him, the vaccination would still provide “very good” protection against serious illness. He has no qualms about voluntary vaccination.

Rationale against compulsory vaccination

Critics have been complaining for months that there are not enough reasons for compulsory vaccination.

In October of 2022, the state health ministers of Saxony, Bavaria, Thuringia and the Baden-Württemberg department head wrote a letter to the Federal Health Minister against an extension of the vaccination requirement. They feared that compulsory vaccination would exacerbate the lack of staff in the healthcare system.

“The institution-related vaccination obligation brings us more harm than good,” said Bavarian State Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU). “We need every available member of the workforce in medicine, nursing and integration assistance.”

Fighting COVID Tyranny in Canada

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) has been exercising tyrannical control over doctors in Ontario, restricting their freedom to prescribe non-vax treatments for COVID-19 patients, and prosecuting them if they spread “misinformation” about the virus or the vax.

An important motion hearing was held today in a court in Ontario to decide whether the CPSO has overstepped the bounds of its authority. As of post time, I haven’t heard any word about how the hearing turned out.

In the video below, Michael Alexander, a lawyer for doctors who are being prosecuted, is interviewed by Dr. Sam Dubé in his “Fifth Doctor” podcast. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for uploading this video:

Birth rates collapse

The German Federal Institute for Population Research reports a collapse in total fertility and birth rates nine months after the start of Corona vaccinations.

A commentary by Jens Bernert

A sharp drop of 15 percent in the birth rate in Germany in connection with the “Corona vaccinations” is reported by the German Federal Institute for Population Research [1][2][3][4]. The seasonally adjusted monthly total fertility rate (TFR) declined by 14 percent. The Federal Institute points out that the dramatic crash in the two rates, calculated on the basis of births, began nine months — the length of a pregnancy — after the campaign to vaccinate the fertile cohorts began. The study rules out reasons for the decline other than the vaccination campaign.

The English-language study, with the translated title “Fertility Declines Toward the End of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Evidence for Birth Declines in Germany and Sweden in 2022,” can be found on the website of the German Federal Institute for Population Research, where it can also be downloaded as a PDF file [5]. The study authors use statistical methods to examine the development of birth and fertility rates in Germany and Sweden.

The birth rate or “seasonally adjusted monthly total fertility rate” refers to all women, including unvaccinated women. This means that the decline in these two rates in relation only to the vaccinated is realistically likely to be much more dramatic. Since the evaluation is based on live births, miscarriages, abortions of damaged fetuses, etc., naturally also play a role here.

The introductory abstract to the study states:

“We rely on monthly birth statistics and present seasonally adjusted monthly total fertility rates (TFR) for Germany and Sweden. We relate nine-month lagged fertility rates to contextual trends in COVID-19 mortality and morbidity, unemployment rates, and COVID-19 vaccination. The seasonally adjusted monthly TFR in Germany fell from 1.5-1.6 in 2021 to 1.3-1.4 in 2022, a decline of about 14 percent. In Sweden, the corresponding TFR fell from about 1.7 in 2021 to 1.5-1.6 in 2022, a decline of almost 10 percent. There is no relationship between fertility trends and changes in unemployment, infection rates, or COVID-19 deaths. However, there is a strong association between the start of vaccination programs and the decline in fertility nine months after the start of these programs.”

The Federal Institute study states that the decline in fertility rates did not occur for other reasons under discussion. Consequently, it states:

The Corona Shell Game

The Wuhan Coronavirus is the most dangerous and deadly disease in history — until it isn’t. When it becomes politically expedient for COVID-19 to disappear, then suddenly it is no longer mentioned.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Boris Reitschuster’s website. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Absurd: “Law virus” deletes Corona virus from law

Covid-19 deleted from §34 Infection Protection Act

Section 34 paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the Infection Protection Act stipulates which diseases are considered to be so highly contagious that those who are ill — or even suspected of having an illness — “are not allowed to carry out any teaching, educational, nursing, supervisory or other activities”. And they are not allowed to be cared for there either. [Is that why the death-rate in these care-homes had been that high? What an evil bunch of murderous misanthropist. Hitler would’ve been PROUD.] These 22 particularly contagious diseases include measles, chickenpox, cholera, plague and diphtheria. Until recently, Covid-19 was listed here as the 23rd disease.

Corona has now been removed from the list. Quasi in a legislative cloak and dagger operation. Because the change was hidden in another change — which is why I ironically call it a “law virus” in the title — because the information is embedded in a foreign cell, i.e. a foreign legal document. You can find them — this is no joke — in the lower part of the legislative decision from printed paper 480/22 with the following title: “Law on the draft decision of the Council on the determination of the violation of restrictive measures of the Union as one of the criteria under Article 83 paragraph 1 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and amending the Infection Protection Act”. [I’m sorry, but this gobbledygook didn’t make any sense to me in German, and trying to translate it into an English version of gobbledygook most likely failed miserably. You have to have the evil mindset of a bureaucrat to make sense of such a sentence. ]

Hand on your heart — would you have read the tapeworm title of the printed matter to the end without my preamble and then discovered that it is also about changing the Infection Protection Act? Even about the deletion of Covid-19 from paragraph 23 of the Infection Protection Act? Why is this hidden in three words at the end of the title, while more space is devoted to it in the printed matter than to the law listed first?

Hiding of such changes in the law, which one does not want to publicize, is unfortunately common practice in the Bundestag today. That doesn’t build trust — it’s exactly the opposite.

In fact, the deletion of Covid-19 from ¶23 went undetected for almost a month and a half. Also by us. An alert reader has now brought this to our attention — to whom I sincerely say thank you.

Why is the removal so hidden? Because it doesn’t gibe with the fact that Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach keeps ringing the alarm bells at every opportunity and pretending that the next “killer variant” is just around the corner, that’s why. The removal just doesn’t fit the fear propaganda at all. On the other hand, it was urgently needed — because otherwise not only would students and teachers, educators and kindergarten children have to stay at home after every positive test. And with dramatic consequences if there is a suspicion of Corona.

New Corona “Cases” Mean Two More Years of Totalitarian Rule in New Zealand

For authoritarian leaders who long to become totalitarians, the Wuhan Coronavirus provides the ideal means to that end. The ludicrously inaccurate PCR test for the presence of the virus is notorious for producing an excessive number of false positive results. Thus the would-be dictator has only to order another round of mass testing, and BINGO! A new wave of COVID appears, ready to be pushed into the news cycle, providing the opportunity for whatever additional coercive measures the pocket Hitler longs to impose.

A case in point is New Zealand, which is ruled by the prognathous Jacinda Ardern. Ms. Ardern has never made any bones about her totalitarian ambitions, and a new surge in Corona “cases” has given her government the excuse to extend the COVID state of emergency for two more years, during which time it may command the populace to do whatever it likes.

Below is a news report from New Zealand about the new decision. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for uploading this video:

How Our Military Crumbles

Readers may remember Bret Weinstein from the great culture wars during the halcyon pre-Corona days of 2017.

Mr. Weinstein was a professor of biology at Evergreen State College in Washington State until he ran up against the woke madness that had infected his campus. White people were requested to stay away from campus for the annual “Day of Absence”, to highlight the struggle of people of color against discrimination and white supremacy. Or something similar. Professor Weinstein declined to participate, which placed him at the center of an enormous storm of controversy. He and his wife were eventually hounded into resigning their positions (see the précis of what happened at the bottom of this post).

After the COVID-19 madness had set in, Mr. Weinstein made himself even more of an outcast by speaking out against vaccine mandates and related issues. He is now described as an “anti-vaxxer” and “COVID denier”, and has been relegated to the Outer Darkness of popular culture.

The funny thing is, as I recall, he used to be more or less a regular liberal in his political opinions. He just happens to be one of those rare liberals who (like Bill Maher) is a First Amendment absolutist. And that makes him a “right-wing extremist” in the view of the degraded political culture of 2022.

In the following video Bret Weinstein leads a discussion about the military mandate that requires service members to be injected with the experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus. The policy has effectively caused the attrition of around 80,000 active duty service members, and has had a devastating effect on military readiness. In Mr. Weinstein’s view, the only possible conclusion is that the vax mandate is a deliberate act of sabotage of the American military.

In addition to Bret Weinstein, this video features:

John Bowes is a lieutenant in the US Air Force. He is a student F-16 pilot who has been grounded over the COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Olivia Degenkolb has been in the US Navy for 20 years as an active-duty service member. She is a foreign area officer, and was selected by the Secretary of the Navy to represent the United States as an Assistant Naval Attaché (Designate) to China. After completing training and moving preparations, her diplomatic assignment was withheld due to her COVID-19 vaccination status.

The Unmentioned Surge in Excess Deaths

In the following video Paul Weston discusses this year’s wave of excess deaths in England, which make the “Great Plague Year” of 2020 pale by comparison. What he describes is similar to what has been occurring in Continental Europe, Canada, the United States, and all the other countries that pushed their citizens to get “vaccinated”. Yet, for some reason, the media refuse to talk about it.

Paul Weston is a British-based writer who focuses on the damage done to Western Civilisation by the hard left’s ongoing cultural revolution, which seeks to destroy the Christian, capitalist and racial base of the West. For links to his previous essays, see the Paul Weston Archives.
