I can’t understand it myself. It’s like the woman yesterday who shouted at me about a lack of a mask. On Christmas Eve of all days when people were struggling to get some cheer. The other thing is, you can stand outside in your Garden and sing Carols, that’s allowed I believe. Shame on the police as well. That would not have happened around here because the Chief Constable said Police would not be deployed on these trivial matters (including non mask wearing)

321919 Allen, replying to Allen, 84, #33 of 482 🔗

This article that you have linked to is complete crap:

You should pull that rubbish. There in fact was decidedly not a pandemic- full stop.

Start with the fact that average age of “Death by Covid” exceeds Normal Lifespans:

Austria 80+ years Source EMS;Canada 86 years Source HCSC;England 80+ years Source NHS;France 84 years Source SPF;Germany 82 years Source RKI;Italy 81 years Source ISS;Spain 82 years Source MDS; Switzerland 84 years Source BAG; United States 78 years Source CDC; Sweden 86 years Source FOHM;

The WHO changed it’s definition of pandemic in 2009. In the annals of pandemic since the year 350 Covid ranks 23rd out of 24 in overall deaths as a percentage of population worldwide. The swine flu pandemic of 2009 (coincidentally the same year the WHO changed that definition) ranks 24th. These two pandemics are several hundred to a thousand % points lower in mortality rates than past pandemics.

“Deaths from Covid” are from a specific demographic- pandemics are noted to impact mortality rates of a broad demographic. The only demographic impacted by “Covid” was not merely the elderly but the most fragile of the fragile of the elderly- mainly those who were living in squalid conditions in nursing homes AND received altered and improper treatment which killed them. Virtually all, if not all were poor.

THAT IS NOT A PANDEMIC- quit perpetuating this lie.

By soft selling this lie cover is provided for the crimes that were committed.

322030 ▶▶ PastImperfect, replying to Allen, 12, #34 of 482 🔗

I am putting together a “Covid Fraud Destruction Document” that I shall send to my entire email list. Perhaps it will be “The Final Straw in the Destruction of Friendship and the Gateway to Banishment”

The Covid-19 Event

The response to the virus is a fraud throughout the western world.  France removed Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) from over-the-counter availability in February after the Chinese had reported that its predecessor chloroquine was effective in treating Covid-19.  (American medical supremo Fauci recommended it for earlier sars outbreak in 2005.)  Fauci and western countries then banned the use of HCQ as a treatment of the disease.  Countries that used HCQ such as Russia and countries where HCQ is used for treatment of malaria had far fewer fatalities.  Many doctors fought their governments trying to get permission to use cheap, safe, effective treatments such as HCQ, but it was not until a vaccine was approved that it was reinstated as a treatment for C-19 in the USA.  (I am not sure whether HCQ or Ivermectin treatments are yet allowed in this country.)  HCQ is an anti-viral and works with vitamin D and zinc to treat C-19 and it is also good as a treatment for 'flu, according to Prof. Dolores Cahill.

This is just one example of what has been happening.  Clearly, there is an agenda.

321920 OKUK, replying to OKUK, 44, #35 of 482 🔗

It’s amazing how the BBC and the UK MSM are ignoring the gathering stolen election crisis in the USA!

Trump’s posted a no nonsense video from Man in America calling out the CCP’s primary role in an all out assault on America and Trump in particular. The video’s had 3 million views. Trump has called for his supporters to protest in DC on 6 Jan when Congress is supposed to be ratifying the Electoral College vote. I haven’t heard of any organisation going into that but my hunch is there is a lot of pro Trump anger in the land. I really wouldn’t be surprised if a million turned out.

321927 ▶▶ Richard O, replying to OKUK, 36, #36 of 482 🔗

Florida in 2000 looks like a minor bureaucratic squabble by comparison with this. We are in uncharted territory here. As you have said before, much more hangs on this than most observers outside the USA would care to imagine. A Biden presidency essentially means that China will be the dominant world superpower for the foreseeable future.

Good to hear 🙂 Just back from midnight mass in Manchester where there were about 100 (mostly masked) people. No singing allowed by the congregation, but I was part of a quartet singing carols. It actually made for a rather lovely service. Shame about the public service announcements, but the priest was maskless for the sermon, and (anti) social distancing was minimal.

The keenest supporters of Comrade Stalin were the young; having known nothing but war, revolution and civil war they thought the relative stability of the 30’s meant denouncing kulaks, nefmen, priests and bourgeois conspirators to the Cheka/NKVD was the ‘right’ thing to do.

They were also the most likely to be taken in by the promise of a radiant Socialist future just around the corner and so not complain about the constant sacrifices they were making.

As with the end of lockdown, that radiant future was at the end of the rainbow.

Special greetings to fellow Christians.

And is it true,
This most tremendous tale of all,
Seen in a stained-glass window’s hue,
A Baby in an ox’s stall ?
The Maker of the stars and sea
Become a Child on earth for me ?

And is it true ? For if it is,
No loving fingers tying strings
Around those tissued fripperies,
The sweet and silly Christmas things,
Bath salts and inexpensive scent
And hideous tie so kindly meant,

No love that in a family dwells,
No carolling in frosty air,
Nor all the steeple-shaking bells
Can with this single Truth compare –
That God was man in Palestine
And lives today in Bread and Wine.

A touching poem from a DT comment on Sherelle Jacobs’ article:

A Visit from Granny

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through tier four
Not a household was mixing, the PM had implored ;
The presents were posted; wrapped with such care,
Hopes dashed that relatives soon would be there;
The children were dreaming as they lay in their beds;
While visions of better years danced in their heads;
And mum, lockdown sceptic, and I with my views,
Had just settled down for the BBC news,
When out on the drive we heard boxes clatter ,
We sprang from our chairs to see what was the matter.
Away to the windows we flew like a flash,
We realised Granny had done a mad dash.
The lights from the homes on the road where we live,
Shone a beam on the presents Granny wanted to give.
When our small children’s wondering eyes did appear,
It wasn’t a dream, their Granny was here!
With a little commotion, we had to be quick,
We hustled in Granny our movements were slick.
More rapid than eagles we helped hide her shame,
She hugged all the children and called them by name:
“My Rosie! My Jamie! My Daisy and Carrie!
My Thomas! My Benji! My Anna and Harry!
I’ve missed you all so! I couldn’t do Zoom!
Now hug me! And hold me! And show me my room!”

321960 alw, replying to alw, 29, #83 of 482 🔗

The problem is not the virus but the NHS itself. Because of Covid hospitals have increased the spaces between beds so hospitals have less capacity now than they prior to the virus. In addition there are high rates of staff sickness amongst NHS staff for various reasons some related to the virus. The NHS won’t pay the premium rate for agency staff so are in the position of chronic shortages of staff in some areas. All this has been confirmed to me by a senior consultant friend and family members who are doctors. So in summary we are still saving the NHS at huge economic and associated health costs. The patient can be saved but the NHS cannot.

Anyhow Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoy your celebrations 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄

In fairness, my wife works for the local NHS trust, and has just received a bulletin from their Chief Exec tightening the rules on self-isolation. Now they are quite specific that you have to have to have been in direct contact, wearing no PPE, with a confirmed Covid case before you can swan off for 2 weeks paid holiday. Just working alongside someone with a sniffle is not considered an acceptable reason. (It hardly inspires confidence that it’s taken them about 9 months to make this clarification!)

Happy Christmas all, thanks for all the encouragement and words of wisdom over the last god knows how many months. It’s been a huge support.

We went carol singing at two care homes locally yesterday – I volunteer for a local charity supporting elderly people, particularly those with dementia, through singing. We go and sing with residents in care homes every week – or we did until March. I’ve missed it so much but it was lovely to go and sing yesterday and wave through the windows to so many of them. I just hope that we get to go back next year and sing with them properly rather than at a distance.

322001 George Mc, replying to George Mc, 9, #118 of 482 🔗

Yes, it’s Christmas morning and I’m already typing here. But I’m a sad obsessive git:

Sweden continues to be chastised for its failure to knuckle down with covid theology:


This has to be the most obnoxious example of phony moralising from a ‘Leftist’ perspective.

The hyperventilating sanctimonious rhetoric erupts in the very first line.

‘Sweden’s self-proclaimed role as a humanitarian superpower has died, along with the country’s nearly 8,000 COVID-19 victims.’

And we are subjected to the hypocritical mewling over the “most vulnerable” – that elderly portion whose deaths are most questionably attributed to covid.

The use of the elderly has been a vital prop of the covid narrative since the big Western push started with Italy. And it’s easy to see why. No population experiences a higher rate of deaths than the elderly sector for the very fact that they are old. And from the beginning, no attempt was made to determine whether those who had covid AND comorbidities died from the covid or a comorbidity.

But now that Sweden has ‘learned its lesson’:

‘…the Government announced that it would begin the use of rapid COVID-19 tests, recommended by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control since 28 October.’

The Ouija boards are now set to play their indispensable part.

322015 ▶▶▶ Stephanos, replying to karenovirus, 5, #121 of 482 🔗

A very slight disagreement here. Assuming that the death rate is constant, I calculate that the total for the year would be 94,359. This is from (85336/331)*366. But that total is not so far from the highest total for those years (92185 in 2018).
This is a very crude calculation and doesn’t take into account the fact that the total for 2019 was the lowest of the ten years, so in general, I agree, no different at all.
Merry Christmas.

Have had to register again as appears my old user name and password no longer recognised.
Anyway, took MOH to Heathrow yesterday for a premature flight back to Qatar, thanks to Hancock’ s scaremongering with his precious new strains. Mr Hattie should have been here for 3 weeks after not seeing each other for 5 months – though Skype was a great help. Concerns were, that borders would be shut again thanks to the ramping up of mutant strains. Although yesterday that was not the case, the country has upped the quarantine rules in the past 2 days to hotel isolation ( which we were not aware, even the exceptional permit needed for entry stated home quarantine as he is over 55) – so inspite of a pre flight negative PCR test, he is now confined in a hotel room for 7 days, if no false positive occurs, with a very limited food menu. Luckily, there are a few Christmas treats in his suitcase. So, thanks Hancock for your continued fakery and hysteria aroumd the virus threat, though I would imagine there are plenty of truck drivers that would like to personally offer their thanks ….and South Africans.
I would note, on the drive back from London, plenty of illuminated signs stating ‘stay home, tier 4’ to which a raspberry was blown to each one I passed, the M25 was pretty busy, likewise the M11, A14, A11. Not too much notice being taken then of the stay at home message – good.
So we will have a Skype lunch today, and at least the hotel is providing beer and wine, so not a complete disaster.
Will now head off to our secret church with a candle. A beautiful old church at the end of a public footpath hidden in a load of trees. We stumbled on it last Good Friday whilst on a bike ride. It has been left open throughout and although not in formal use, is still intact inside and has been our little refuge. Well, it is more inspiring to sit there quietly than attending mass in the local church surrounded by masked goons.

Testing in France. Another example of the unreliability of PCR testing and how dependent on the amount of test done. Strong argument for replacing completely the PCR tests outside hospital setting with LFT and an intelligent test setup for hospitalized patients.

322061 ▶▶ mhcp, replying to swedenborg, 11, #165 of 482 🔗

Or not test at all except for people with symptoms as has been the case before. The trouble with PCR is that it is a search test rather than a characterised threshold test.

I’m glad the ZOE Covid app is being used as source of evidence. It has been a fairly reliable leading indicator of Covid symptom prevalence since May.

Just remember, though, that the app effectively debunks the Yeadon theory of a ‘False Positive’ epidemic. On the other hand, it does support the app does suggest that daily infections were falling before Lockdown 2 was introduced and that the lockdown had no effect.

Inspired by his post, here are my predictions of further tiers (some nicked from Zuby himself and other commenters):

Tier 5 – All human interaction will be banned to slow the spread of the virus

Tier 6 – All Zoom, Teams calls will be banned as it’s found that the virus can spread even via face to face calls

Tier 7 – All Facebook messaging, Whatsapp, Viber will be banned as new evidence shows that the virus can spread even via messaging functions

Tier 8 – Mandatory clapping for the NHS every Thursday at 6pm. First one to stop clapping will be shot

Tier 9 – Those who tested positive have to commit hara-kiri to stop the spread of the virus

Tier 10 – The bodies of those who committed hara kiri will be incinerated to stop the spread of the virus

Tier 11 – Cities will be evacuated and nuked to stop the spread of the virus

Tier 12 – Unauthorised breathing will be penalised

Tier 13 – Parts of the City of London and Canary Wharf will be demolished to make sure that everyone is following social distancing

Tier 14 – All libraries and archives will be banned as books and manuscripts have been shown to spread the virus

Tier 15 – Ritual purification every day mandatory

Tier 16 – Ritual purification every hour mandatory

Prioritize the young HCW seems strange considering the initial problems in younger persons with more anaphylaxis than expected. But this massive roll out in all age groups is beneficial for Big Pharma as a more age restricted start might have scared more people.

I have not checked the links below but it seems not that generous pay out if something is going wrong in the US as the companies are not liable for anything.

“COVID Vaccine Injury, You are on your own
Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) is administered within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). It is much less generous than the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP or NVICP)
You have to file a claim with the (CICP) Within one year of vaccination, run by DHHS which is also sponsoring the COVID-19 vaccination program. DHHS therefore essentially acts as the judge, jury and defendant.
First, everyone involved with getting the vaccine to you has had their liability waived under the PREP Act …
Keep in mind that if your employer mandates the vaccine, they will not be liable for side effects.
According to the experts CNBC spoke to, “claims would be routed through worker’s compensation programs and treated as an on-the-job injury.”
If you are injured by a pandemic vaccine, you cannot sue any of the parties involved in getting the vaccine to you.
CICP does not pay any of the costs associated with any claim, This means you’ll also be responsible for attorney fees and expert witness fees.
According to the CICP director, the maximum payout you can receive — even in cases of permanent disabilityor death — is $250,000 per person; however, you’d have to exhaust your private insurance policy before the CICP gives you a dime.
CICP will only pay the difference between what your insurance covers and the total payout amount establishedfor your case not to exceed $250,000.

The CICP also has a one year statute of limitations, so you have to be quick. This has been very tough on claimants, because most people are unaware the program exists, another big problem with claims for injuries from Covid vaccines: nobody knows exactly what the serious injuries are, nor how to identify them with certainty.

If you become injured after receiving a designated ‘countermeasure’ vaccine, do not anticipate that you will get help from the government nor from the manufacturers.
Please inform yourself of the benefits and risks beforehand.

Dr Birx’s fall.One of the leading in CDC response to the pandemic

Dr. Deborah Birx said she took her Thanksgiving jaunt to Delaware because her parents were so down in the dumps, they “stopped eating and drinking” — a justification ripped by people who said it was her coronavirus restrictions that prevented them from seeing their own dying loved ones.”

https://nypost.com/2020/12/23/dr-birx-trip-came-after-parents-stopped-eating-and-drinking/?utm_medium=SocialFlow&utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPTwitter https://twitter.com/JordanSchachtel/status/1342168385115860995 Apart from the hyperbole “Shakespearean” a rather good take on this story
 “A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions: in the end, Birx was forced to break the rules she inflicted on the entirety of American society in order to save her parents’ lives. Still, she refuses to acknowledge her failures, which have torn apart millions of American families. Birx unintentionally exposed the true, horrific costs of the lockdowns she has relentlessly advocated for Deborah Birx *wrote the rules* that directly led to her parents falling into such a deep depression that they stopped eating. She also pleaded the American people not to travel on Thanksgiving day

322100 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to swedenborg, 4, #224 of 482 🔗

That article is grim reading. So many questions. One individual had a parent die with Covid marked in March, but still hasn’t buried them.

And if this is all a project fear type exercise why would she allow her family to suffer to such an extent:

““My daughter hasn’t left that house in 10 months, my parents have been isolated for 10 months. They’ve become deeply depressed,” Birx said of the need to “recover from the trauma of the last 10 months.””

So Birx can’t be in on it if there is an Agenda. Seems to point to convergent opportunism rather than full scale NWO plans.

Are You Sacrificing That Which Matters Most?
“Of course, I’m not telling anyone what to do. I would encourage you, though, to ponder what matters.

Most people will agree that the most valuable moments in life are those spent with family and friends , especially elderly relatives whose days are already numbered. Those very moments that make life worth living are now being stolen — if we let them.

The question is, what value do we place on family, versus the risk of illness? As mentioned, Gates predicts social restrictions will need to stay in place for the next two years. Are you willing to give up three years of life for an illness that poses no greater threat to life than a bad flu season?

How about five years? Ten? In all likelihood, the SARS-CoV-2 virus is here to stay, just like the pandemic swine flu, which is now one of the many viruses we encounter in any given flu season. In 2009, the swine flu pandemic was touted as a grave threat, yet no panic has ensued in the years since, even though it’s still in circulation. Why is that? Why should SARS-CoV-2 be any different?

As noted by A.J. Kay in a recent Medium article, “If safety requires us to indefinitely forfeit the most valuable parts of our lives, what exactly are we trying to save?”

According to a report by the AARP and United Health Foundation, social distancing measures have led to an epidemic of loneliness, and this too has significant risks that should be included in the risk-benefit calculation as it increases mortality from every cause.

Public health researcher Kassandra Alcaraz recently told the American Psychological Association:

“Our research really shows that the magnitude of risk presented by social isolation is very similar in magnitude to that of obesity, smoking, lack of access to care and physical inactivity.”

It only upsets me a lot of the time. I woke up this morning having slept well. I was in a good mood and my mood is now miserable.

I come on here and all I get is abuse from a smug, anonymous troll.

I’m not afraid of the security services. I am, however, afraid of the anonymous posters who come here.

I’m fearful that I might upset one of them and the polis will be knocking on my door for having offended one of them in an unguarded moment.

I did once ask that Toby make it more difficult to comment, but, as I say, I would prefer it if the facility did not exist at all.

It’s not good for my mental health coming here.

It’s catch22. I have to come here for good information on the so-called “pandemic”. and I’m urged to comment by that friendly green popup that would just love to know my thoughts.

Then that green popup appears and I feel urged to comment. Then I end up getting upset a lot of the time.

Sometimes I like to write though, but what good it does is very much open to question.

People have their own views and I seem unable to get a lot of them to undestand mine.

Sometimes I think it helps to let off steam. Just now I’m not so sure.

I really do not like a lot of the people who post here.

I don’t hate my parents. To hate them might mean BECOMING them. I just pity them to the point of despair. I shall expend no more energy on trying to wake them up during 2021 or beyond.

I’ve just had a pleasant conversation with a nice lady from the Samaritans. I haven’t spoken to them for over a year. It was because of the exchanges on here today that I phoned.

Earlier, I was so upset with one poster that my hands were shaking uncontrollably with emotion as I was writing, responding to a mean remark directed at me by “Major Panic”.

I can’t handle it.

And I don’t know who was responsible for the new login policy, but as I said, I don’t like it.

My comments were addressed to whoever was responsible for it, but I don’t bear grudges.

This is not good for Christmas Day.

You may think you know me, but you really don’t.

I’m going to try to make this my last posting here. I just do not feel comfortable and many of the people here I do not like, though, I repeat, I do not bear grudges.

So I will again wish a good Christmas to those who are receptive to my comments. I have tried not to be boring or predictable. And I’ve tried to be honest.

I seem so have positive feelings towards Annie and Julian in particular and Philip of the tired fingers. There are many other good people here as well as the nasty ones.

I’ve just started watching Scrooged. Classic. Bill Murray. It occured to me that a lot of family Christmas films have the premise of something bad/evil attempting to mess up Christmas. Ultimately the plot to ruin Christmas fails because a hero with the help of others fight back and saves the day. Die Hard. Scrooged. Home Alone. Gremlins. Grinch..

Yet our leaders and the greedy bastards that puppet them i.e. Gates have ruined Christmas in reality more than any of the villains or monsters in these fictional stories.

I just read an interview with Richard Tice, the Chairman of the Farage led Brexit party (that wants to be the Reform Party, but the electoral commission has just ignored them so far re the name change). This is what he says about Covid:

On Covid, he praises the Government for having ‘taken a punt’ on purchasing large quantities of vaccines before they came to fruition and for the Nightingale Hospitals project, which he said benefited from the Army and private sector project managers who had been resisted by senior managers in the NHS.

But he is ultra-scornful of the handling of the test and trace system, branding it ‘a catastrophically, monstrously wasteful scandal’

And that is all. Nothing whatsoever about the fact that the whole thing is a giant stinking lie, so if you are pinning your hopes on Farage and co to dig you out of the Covid hole, you might as well forget it.

I’m not wishing anyone a Merry Christmas as there is nothing to be merry about.

Certainly a new party is what we need soon. If Farage isn’t it then maybe Laurence Fox’s ‘Reclaim’ party might be, although I caution that I have not read his views on the Corona fantasy, so I can’t be sure here. His party is more of a free speech anti woke/cancel culture platform.

In all honesty I doubt that, in the present climate, any political party can stand up and give out an anti lockdown message. First the message itself would be branded as false information and expunged, and second the damage such a message would do to anyone’s political reputation would be incalculable. The number of people that are not following the government lies right now is so small that it wouldn’t amount to a single MP in any election. I have no doubt that will change eventually but not until Boris and the gang declare the war over and people begin to think about what has happened and why. This is one of several reasons why it is not in Boris’ interests to do that for a long time to come.

Have really pushed the boat out for Christmas this year; not usually one to buy into it all, but in an act of defiance to the pathetic diktats – off the back of a year of fearmongering, oppression and information warfare.

Been a lovely day. Carol service on the TV this morning was lovely, loads of great gifts exchanged, screwdrivers and beers aplenty being consumed, an enjoyable walk in which we saw many families on the way, everyone greeting eachother with cordial Christmas greetings, not one mask in sight.

And Christmas dinner smells filling my home now.

The sun is shining here, blue skies and crisp air. You can’t lock nature down. Will be continuing this spirit into the new year, come what may and no matter what is thrown at humanity. Humanity always prevails in the end, and we’re all stronger in spite of it.

A very good detailed article demolishing our belief in the Oxford’s team Our World in Data stringency index. Many have used this index and comparing outcomes. “Most metrics in the Blavatnik School ranking don’t measure what thoughtful observers look for: they are clearly not nuanced enough or spaced enough to capture the differences between countries or reflect what any normal person would mean by “lockdowns” or government mandates. Their researchers seem to interpret statements and press releases a little arbitrarily (sometimes from English-speaking sources only, and two or three steps removed), and they use the strictest policy in any region as a stand-in for the entire country.” “The benefit of trusting a third-party assessor for ranking policy responses ‒ like we do for the human development index , democracy index or economic freedom index ‒ is t hat the researcher using the numbers took no part in creating it. One hopes that those creating it did so with no obvious ulterior motive for how it would be used. The drawback is that you’re trusting the interpretative judgment to a third-party observer. That’s fine if that judgment is balanced and accurate, disastrous if it’s not.” “In the spring, when the ranking roughly seemed to reflect what was happening in various countries, nobody objected to it ‒ or even looked under its hood. Now, after its strange rewriting of history and poor use of the Nordic countries show very misleading stories, nobody should trust it without looking at the details.”

Bylinetmes really is the most noxious spreader of covid propaganda with a Leftist veneer. I had intended to do an in-depth study of the following article but found the first half so vile that, for the sake of my own sanity, I had to stop.


Merely consider these two items on their list:

‘Five: Communities Took Back Control’

This looks like a sadistic joke:

‘Hyperlocal, local, regional and municipal initiatives and enterprises have proven themselves to be much more effective than the lumbering outsourced private companies over track and trace

i.e. we are determining ‘control’ in terms of what is most effective for mass surveillance. And note that constantly exploited zoning in on Leftist rhetoric with ‘lumbering outsourced private companies’. But if we are talking about non-invasive tactics, communities were in fact locked down, masked and told to stay away from each other.

‘Six: Lives Mattered More’

‘Just as the Coronavirus crisis put our humanity on the line, the heroes of the moment became health workers, care workers, cleaners, transport staff, delivery drivers and many more.’

Ah yes, the virus suddenly caused a turnaround to all that soulless privatisation and caused an explosion of pure human empathy where we were all inspired to rush into each other’s arms – only to stop as we were reminded to socially distance!

‘… this was the first pandemic in which lives were put above the economy and most of the population were willing to suffer some material disadvantage in order to protect the health of the less advantaged and vulnerable.’

No, ‘most of the population’ suffered ‘some material disadvantage’ and stayed indoors and away from each other because they were told to do so.

This endlessly repeated mantra of ‘people before profits’ is the central prop of the deception. In reality: everyone was relentlessly intimidated and indeed terrorised by constant hysteria mongering, ordered to wear masks, ordered to stay apart, deprived not only of their jobs but of all regular activity and- perhaps worst of all – derived of medical services for actual real conditions.

And a preview of coming attractions:

‘This could see a shift of behaviour when we come to face that other deadly and more permanent threat to our future – climate change. With Johnson joining Joe Biden in apparently supporting green investment, the first green shoots of a remaking of policy and politics are there.’

Every time these media hacks trot out the ‘we’ it becomes more pathetically obvious that they mean ‘they’ assuming the mantle of a phony populism.

322171 ▶▶ BeBopRockSteady, replying to George Mc, 5, #304 of 482 🔗

I suppose you can say a lot of those things are true in a microcosm of what we’ve seen this year. But when you add in the monumental costs, which they don’t even attempt to contemplate in any meaningful way (as if they were inevitable in these “unprecedented” times), whether lockdowns work to their intended purpose and the overall context of SARS-CoV-2 in relation to flu epidemics.

The idea that PCR is driving a pseudo epidemic would be so far from their thoughts that it would be earth shattering stuff for them to even engage in it.

322210 ▶▶▶ George Mc, replying to BeBopRockSteady, 4, #305 of 482 🔗

‘But when you add in the monumental costs’


‘The pandemic’s impact on major economies has been four times worse than that of the 2008 global financial crisis.’

This suggests a financial coup four times the size of the 2008 banker’s crisis but done much more covertly as a ‘health emergency’.

Her father’s 1939 Christmas broadcast struck a better note and was much more hopeful especially when he quoted from that poem in the end:

“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”

There is only one way to control my anger when surveying tawdry manipulative sites like Bylinetimes and that is to acknowledge that the covid talk is only a cover and that these hack writers either know it themselves or are being directed by those who know it. This is clearly a huge restructuring project which would be totally unacceptable to the vast majority if it was done openly and honestly. This is why it has to be effected under the cover of this staged pandemic whose rhetoric must be maintained all the way no matter how obviously deceptive it is to how many people.

322328 ▶▶ swedenborg, replying to rockoman, #334 of 482 🔗

Also remember seeing such a phrase but can’t find it in his comments now.  I don’t think he meant it seriously, just that Drosten did a very quick work which if it was solid, would have taken longer time. Drosten was involved in the swine flu PCR testing.
But I don’t think we should take it he had worked on it for two months and had it ready in the end of January, more that he made too many shortcuts (no live virus) which resulted in a bad test.

Society is sick, suspended between the eras of the life-loving baby boomers and a perverse new desire to abolish death.

Post the populist successes of 2016 there was a deliberate, unpleasant and unrelenting campaign in the globalist-controlled MSM to undermine people’s mental well being and their confidence in their own perceptions and judgments. The basic message was that everyone has mental health issues, that we should all feel anxiety, and that it was abnormal not to, that we cannot trust our own judgment and that we should rely on experts to tell us what we are experiencing. Everyday experiences and challenges – the trials of life – were turned into mental health crises.

It’s hardly surprising that after that two year plus campaign most people had few defences against government-induced hysteria.

322331 ▶▶▶ Bugle, replying to OKUK, 3, #348 of 482 🔗

Thanks for this, which I will take as a vindication of my own assessment. The campaign to make every anxiety, depression or disappointment a mental health issue is insidious and dangerous. Participants have included Lloyds Bank UK and Bell Telecom Canada. Doesn’t anyone ask why large corporations suddenly want us to ‘talk’ about our states of mind? The BBC has even pushed the issue through Monty Don, but at least his prescription is ‘gardening’.

Mental Health Weeks have become commonplace round the world and pop up in English schools, presented by such bodies as the Anna Freud Foundation and funded by such charities as the Wellcome Trust. I do not – by the way – deny that mental illness can be serious issue, causing destructive reactions even to the point of suicide, especially as a result of the government’s lockdown policies.

Having said this, the involvement of big business and big pharma should raise eyebrows. Drug companies are interested in selling drugs and have shown themselves willing to do so by identifying new conditions, even in children. I don’t feel I’ve done a great job with this post and so would invite others to correct or support my thoughts.

322382 ▶▶▶▶ OKUK, replying to Bugle, 1, #349 of 482 🔗

You’ve done a great job, not least by reminding us we should be suspicious of Big Pharma’s involvement in the campaign to induce anxiety…I would say it’s only the same as being suspicious if your local drug dealer turns up at the gates of your child’s school with a smile on their face.

Though not a Scientologist myself, I’ve noted before that while Scientology (which opposes psychiatric medicine) gets a bad press and has many adherents who have serious mental health issues, I can’t recall a single incident where one of their number has gone on a murderous rampage with guns. But in nearly every mass shooting, the killer has been found to be on psychiatric drugs or a heavy cannabis user. Peter Hitchens has been good at exposing the facts but still the MSM pushes Big Pharma drug solutions and suggests cannabis is a harmless recreational drug.

Merry Christmas from England, where we didn’t expect to be. We have just escaped from Switzerland after an abortive skiing holiday. We got to the resort okay without wearing masks, despite some heavy pressure from EasyJet and a little flak on the train. After a few days we were told that anybody from Britain was subjected to retrospective quarantine, which would have meant house arrest in our rented apartment over Christmas; and that all restaurants were to close on 27th Dec. We booked flights home, which was difficult; we had to go via Paris. And we were lucky to get anything at all. There were no direct flights, and some options would have taken up to 24 hours. The trip home was stressful. I’m not used to breaking the law. During the train journey to Geneva Airport I received 6 text messages telling me I must report myself to the cantonal authorities and stay indoors for 10 days on penalty of a fine of 10000 CHF, which is over £8000. I got increasingly paranoid thinking we’d be arrested at the airport at the last moment. But we made it. Now for 10 days quarantine in England. If I choose to comply.

It’s sometimes OK to break the law if this stops a worse crime from being committed.

What an ordeal! I’m sorry you had to go through that — unimaginable before 2020. Do not comply with the ridiculous quarantine! When my daughter went back to university in August she was forced to quarantine for 2 weeks but was also forced to get 3 Covid tests during the 2 week period. I told her that since the government thought it was perfectly OK to break quarantine to get 3 Covid tests, she should feel free to break quarantine to go for a walk and get a coffee. It was a proud moment when she told me she broke quarantine the very first day. Merry Christmas — even though you should have been skiing. While we have hills rather than mountains, the government has shut down skiing for the next month.

Ah well. It was worth a try.

A decidedly less family-friendly novelty track also stormed this week’s charts: Boris Johnson is a Fucking Cunt by Essex band the Kunts, which reached No 5. The 56-second punk track – or 82 seconds in its extended album version – features the title repeated over and over [again] in rising key changes. Charlie Brooker and Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock were among those supporting the song on social media.

The band’s mononymous [sic] frontman Kunt previously attempted to reach Christmas No 1 in 2010 under the name Kunt and the Gang. He performed an even more luridly titled song aimed at the then Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, who had formed a coalition government with the Conservatives that year. It reached No 66.

The green burn-off does sound like metal content in a meteor. Rather unusual daytime occurrence, though. Meteors do not usually have enough light to show up in daytime although they can occur at any time of day or night.
In late 1988 I went for a walk on a freezing night in Scotland and saw several meteors. I was on the edge of a city (Dundee) so less ambient light. Beautiful sight. I am not superstitious but I thought it might be a good omen and indeed a job application I had made proved successful.

The interviewed solicitor has power of attorney for several elderly clients. He informed about the forms he has been sent by the care home management and local authority. Of course with a VERY short period to fill in these forms and return, so no proper consultation possible. Although hopefully they will not vaccinate if no consent has been given.

There was a troubling moment today when a guest at my Xmas table, after one too many glasses, started to show the effects of being subjected to brainwashing and suddenly began openly insulting people (loved ones, I think) in the room who do not wear masks in shops.

This was in spite of our excellent hospitality. He knows we don’t wear masks so I was gobsmacked. Totally. Ouch.

Our governments and our Gates paid for mass media are extremely divisive and nasty, and they know it, and the do it on purpose. They will continue. They fcucked Xmas for thousands.

I will have to put this incident down to a lovers tiff and too much Port…as I wish to continue seeing my family. Family is more important than masks.

Port is a nasty drink, like the government and Gates paid for media and so called “health reporters” in particular.

If I’m ever able to fly again — without a mask or a vaccine — I’ll come and visit and we can drink it together! It’s a Warre’s 1983 vintage port. Would love to toast to the end of the insanity.

Had son, daughter in law and two grandchildren visit for the day. Daughter in law came and gave me a hug, despite the fact that over the past 9 months she has been petrified. Had hugs and kisses from grandchildren (3 and 5 years old), and hug from son. No distancing, no masks and basically normal.

The Denis Rancourt video and paper (from 6 months ago too) is great. Very well described and matches a lot of what has been observed. The synchronous peak though in certain areas of the world is a effectively a smoking gun too. No states that implemented lockdown had that peak.

Academic achievement and bone-headed stupidity have never been incompatible. The academic world was wrong about everything to do with medicine and cosmology for two thousand years.
And there’s nothing to beat academics for spite and intolerance, either. I know, I used to be one.

322364 ▶▶ Bugle, replying to Cecil B, 13, #467 of 482 🔗

This is the point, isn’t it: “MPs and protestors are less likely to be able to travel to London while it’s in tier 4.” Avoiding scrutiny and suppressing dissent are major preoccupations of this government. There is also the public order angle: when people eventually become angry about their ruined lives, the restrictions will come in handy to prevent riots. Finally, I suspect the decision to cancel Christmas was taken to prevent people from rediscovering freedom – reality even. A proper five day celebration would have let the genie out of the bottle, possibly necessitating force to get it back in again.

Brexit was always delusion on stilts – built on myths that parallel those of Covid. The current joint debacle has just brought this to the fore.

I try to be ultra cautious because of health issues but I’m fiercely anti lockdown and pro making your own choices as a responsible adult. Yesterday, I visited my cousin also cautious because of health problems. We acted normally and had a lovely afternoon.
Today, I was invited to visit church friends, B and S whom I usually spend Christmas with. S is lovely and was very good to me in the spring, B has been freaking out since March and living apart from S but joined her today.

He collected me, at least he didn’t fuss over my lack of mask but had all windows wound down rather than a usual couple of inches for ventilation. (I’m all for letting some fresh air in but this was freezing) He grumbled the entire journey about people who disobeyed the rules and said it was too dangerous for me to stay long.

He decreed where we all sat. He sat at the far side of the room while S and I sat at opposite sides of the table. He made her move a further foot away and wear a mask save when eating. I told him I hardly went out and quoted the US Marines. study for the futility of trying to control a virus. He still muttered about rule-breakers,and obeying every rule and acted as if I had leprosy, bubonic plague and ebola combined.

The food was very good. I then tried to show them some photos which was someone difficult 10 feet apart.

S was tired so I made my excuses and thankfully returned home. I guess this is Christmas according to SAGE!

Social media today suggests tier four has been disregarded totally in my area. Today felt pretty quiet actually, not even a peep of doom from SAGE or the media. I expected some Sage prof to come out early in the morning with some catastrophic prediction of 20000 dead in the next two weeks because of Christmas in some final push to get people to cancel their plans.

I’m sure the fear porn will be ramped up over the next few days to prepare us for a January lockdown. The death registering lag over Christmas will probably mean the death toll in a few days time will be over 1000 which the media and government will blame on Christmas and people not following the rules.

Hope you all had as good of a Christmas as you could have and good luck with whatever awaits us in the future Thanks Toby and this community for keeping me sane this year.
