Losing control of a carefully crafted panic

Lockdowns were “worth it” if they saved “even one” life. Remember? Does it follow that even one death means junk vaccines are not worth it? Shut up, Professor Kelly explains:

 
Meanwhile, the AMA – having encouraged and used the media for more than a year to dishonestly frighten us about the overwhelmingly harmless coronavirus and its easybeat stature on this lightly populated island – is suddenly converted to the benefits of remaining calm.

    She was diabetic.

    And suddenly, just like that, co-morbidities became important.

  2. Judge Dredd says:

    No evidence for lockdowns, no evidence for masks, no evidence Covid is any worse than a bad flu, no evidence the not-vaccines are safe in the medium or long-term.
    Looks like it’s all on faith.
    The West should have never lost the Path of Christianity.

  3. Perfidious Albino says:

    We can only hope that Big Government, Big Public Health and Big Media have torched a lot of credibility and trust out of this ridiculous exercise.

  4. Dr Faustus says:

    The problem the Priesthood is facing is not so much people being put off vaccination by the risk of being the unlucky 1:250,000.

    The bigger issue is why accept vaccination at all?

    We have effectively no community transmission. It looks fairly clear that vaccination is not going to stop infection/transmission – and consequently governments have no intention of changing out of the isolate/lockdown/eliminate ‘donut’ strategy.

    So, unless you are gagging to travel overseas, or seriously immunocompromised, or aged and in care – why?

    “Chief Medical Officer urges people not to jump to conclusions”.
    After having fomented mass hysteria for more than a year?

  6. PB says:

    It’s hard to know how many conclusions are left to not jump to.

  7. Squirrel says:

    The Chief Medical Officer and the AMA would doubtless claim that it’s more complicated than this, but to a general public which does actually have more to do than follow every word and every nuance of the official messaging on the virus, the authorities have painted themselves into a corner. Many must have been wondering about this when we were told, yesterday, that the PM thinks the public may have to “wear” up to 1000 cases (whatever that means) per week if the punters want the borders opened for international travel.

    If risk is something that we have to live with now, people might start to ask some very pointed questions about why homes and livelihoods had to be lost, businesses destroyed, lives turned upside down, and future generations burdened with huge debts. There is a difference, but good luck explaining that to a punterariat which has been led to believe that our political class has magically banished virus-related risk.

  8. Damon says:

    Face facts. The vaccine rollout was rushed. Normally, the problems with the A-Z vaccine would have been identified long before it was released to the public. No problems with the other vaccines have been identified-yet. I think the public is perfectly right to be cautious.

  9. Ozman says:

    The circus continues, hopefully to its final conclusion that a hoax has been perpetrated upon the people.

    Last year they were flying with hysteria and prompting people to jump to conclusions. This year, don’t worry about any side effects. Forget about about thrombosis from blood clots.

    No mention of AstraZeneca having to stop trials twice previously. The first occasion because a volunteer suddenly suffered from MS. The second time, because of inflammation of the spine (transverse myelitus) which leads to serious disability.

    Forget about the fact that these are trial genetic manipulations using synthetic mRNA. Go with the ABC, which is promoting that these genetic manipulation injections are required to be taken.

    Hunt admitted that these are trials. How do we know that there is not a two tiered injection system here in Australia as the alarming report from TIME screams: In Germany, a Better Vaccine for Politicians? For the pollies, probably just a flu jab.

    Dr Derek Knauss claims that the after 1500 supposed covid assays were analysed, only influenza A and B were detected; the results being confirmed by six other university research lab teams. When they sought covid isolate from the CDC, they were told none existed. Knauss says that finding 40 base pairs of DNA for covid does not compare to the required 40,000 pairs that establishes a virus is present.

    “The vaccine rollout was rushed”

    I think the vaccine has been rushed from the beginning.

  11. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    The whole chinese virus shambles is experimetal ,the lockdowns ,the masking, the regulations , the vaccines the whole bunch of them unproven ,the for certain is the personal hygene ,that it worked is evidenced ny the lack of common flu this last year ,very few cases .
    The lack of knowlege amongst the elected leaders is abysmal ,and the medical contradictions too ,still you get4 doctors you get 5 opinions .
    Will be a long time efore this is sorted ,if ever.

  12. Roger says:

    “The vaccine rollout was rushed”

    Locally it was also politicised.

    I don’t have much time for “Murpharoo” but she rightly eviscerated Morrison & Hunt in The Guardian for their inept handling of the rollout, undertaken with an eye on gaining a political advantage in view of the next election. Now that it’s gone pear-shaped they own it. Ha!

  13. Baa Humbug says:

    Earlier today I watched a very good presentation about how these vaccines work, don’t work, by a Dr Richard M Fleming. I highly recommend it (link below).

    One thing about the vaccines made a lot of sense to me. Vaccines don’t stop you from getting the virus. They just reduce severity and symptoms. But because now you hardly have any symptoms, you go about spreading the virus thinking you’re OK.
    That’s why Fauci et al are telling us to keep wearing the masks and social distance and not gather in numbers etc even after getting the shot.
    Now we know why countries who’ve done well distributing the vaccines are still getting large numbers of cases.

    We’ve been conned good and hard.

    Dat dastardwy Twump!!

  17. stackja says:

    Wuhan virus not a problem according to WHO.
    The vaccine might have side effects for a few.
    Better let the few die of Wuhan virus?

  18. Perfidious Albino says:

    Not a vaccine. We have to stop letting them change the meaning of words for convenience.

  19. stackja says:

    In the 1950s polio was a problem. Polio vaccine arrived. Who remembers polio?

  20. Damon says:

    November 1, 2009
    A WOMAN who spent more than 60 years in an iron lung to treat polio has died, aged 83. June Middleton, who died at a Melbourne nursing home on Friday, was struck down with polio at 22 and marked 60 years in the iron lung on April 5.

  21. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    Yes Damon ,my daughter who is a nurse met this lady,what a terrible life she led locked in that instrument of horror ,people suffer much less for wilfull murder .

  22. Damon says:

    Fred, an overabundance of compassion. I understand, but cannot sympathise. If anyone treated a dog like that, they would be in jail.

  23. yackman says:

    I am intrigued by the arbitrary cut off at age 50 between Pfizer & AZ. Is this implying that complication incidence & or severity is less at <50 for whatever reason ?eg. less comorbidity. If so should not the application be based on the suite of comorbidities applying to the individual?

  24. wal1957 says:

    Lockdowns were “worth it” if they saved “even one” life. Remember? Does it follow that even one death means junk vaccines are not worth it?

    I must admit that was a thought that crossed my mind as well.
    They can’t have it both ways.

  25. Figures says:

    In the 1950s polio was a problem. Polio vaccine arrived. Who remembers polio?

    You didn’t forget it you were just conned – and boy were you an easy target.

    You see, you and literally every single person on this site – and 99.999999 per cent of the world’s population – never thought to check to see if the fairy tale was too good to be true.

    It was. Because it was a fairy tale.

    And all you had to do to check this was to look at *total* paralysis rates.

    Had you done this you would have realised that polio went nowhere – it was just renamed. Paralysis (even excluding trauma and stroke) is *more* common per person today than before the polio vaccine.

  26. Figures says:

    Face facts. The vaccine rollout was rushed. Normally, the problems with the A-Z vaccine would have been identified long before it was released to the public.

    Incorrect. Every trial for every vaccine is a tissue of lies and every vaccine for every disease is completely useless and very dangerous.

    This vaccine is being rolled out a) to adults (who unlike babies can talk about their reactions); and b) with extraordinary public scrutiny because of the situation we are in.

    That’s not to say it isn’t more dangerous than, say, flu shots – I’m sure it is but its problems are a matter of degree not kind.

  27. Rex Anger says:

    Yes yes Graeme… It’s all in our heads. All disease is merely disease of the mind etc. etc. etx.

    Now, what are the Mossads under your bed up to this week?

    Did they start playing cards with the Sayeret Matkals in your sock drawer again? Or is everyone still not on speaking terms after the flashbang incident last Friday?

  28. BorisG says:

    Lockdowns were “worth it” if they saved “even one” life.

    No, this part is very stupid. Some people said this but no one really meant it. No one sane anyway.

    Prof. Kelly is correct.

    Vaccines are not rubbish, they are phenomenal, some of them anyway. In Israel they reduced daily cases by over 97%. And hospitalisations even more. And counting.

  29. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld says:

    It may be of interest to some to do some research on the”Vaccine” companies. Astazenica has an appalling history as does many others. In the US Johnson andJohnson has never made a vaccine before. Today, news of fully vaccinated person dying. If the current story is true the vaccine being used now is worse that the virus

  30. Figures says:

    Vaccines are not rubbish, they are phenomenal, some of them anyway. In Israel they reduced daily cases by over 97%. And hospitalisations even more. And counting.

    Really? Have a look at total hospitalisations before the vaccine and then afterwards.

    You don’t have a clue about epidemiology so you don’t understand that you’re being conned by a self fulfilling prophecy.

    Of course as Homer Simpson said it takes two to lie – one to lie and one to listen. You enjoy the fairy tale.

    It’s all in our heads. All disease is merely disease of the mind etc. etc. etx.

    It’s hilarious that you keep calling me this Bird character (who I assume doesn’t like Israel). But I never mention Israel and have zero interest in it (although I note that many Palestinians appear to believe in sacrificing their own children for the sake of the herd the same way all pro-vaxers do).

    By the way, we *know* with certainty that diseases are caused by the mind – that’s uncontroversial. But disease being caused by self-replicating pathogens is impossible.

    Or to put it another way, it’s uncontroversial that I’m correct and we know for certain that you’re deeply stupid.

  31. Tel says:

    In the 1950s polio was a problem. Polio vaccine arrived. Who remembers polio?

    Why was it such a problem in the 1950’s? The virus has been around through all of human history and still is around in many countries like India.

    Admittedly, there’s plenty of people without the slightest concept of history.

  32. Rex Anger says:

    Or to put it another way, it’s uncontroversial that I’m correct and we know for certain that you’re deeply stupid

    Excellent! I’m thus as immune to everyhting as you are… 🙂

  33. Bad Samaritan says:

    Fifures. I quite like reading “controversial” views, but mainly when they are accompanied by some sort of substantiation.

    Got any links concerning paralysis rates in children pre-Polio vaccine, and post? Thanks in advance.

  34. cuckoo says:

    It’s funny to see various talking heads reciting the tiny percentage figures for clotting risk from vaccines like beads on a rosary, “Zero-zero-zero-zero-five“, etc. Could they in the same tone then read out the percentage of atmospheric CO2 which is anthropogenic?

  35. Bad Samaritan says:

    Any Cat know who wrote Churchill’s speeches? Or Patton’s? Or Lincoln’s? Or even that leftist icon Adolf’s?

    Meanwhile, here’s one of my favourite movie scenes…..https://youtu.be/l7ER08F9rGo.

    More than one great reference in this one.

  36. Kneel says:

    “But disease being caused by self-replicating pathogens is impossible.”

    Ah – so intestinal worms, for example, don’t exist? Or crypto-sporidium? Ticks? Fleas? Mosquitoes? These are all parasites, just as virus’ are. Some are multi-cellular, some are single celled, and some are not even technically “alive” (a virus can’t reproduce without infecting a living cell), yet all can and do cause diseases.

    I certainly agree that mental attitudes are important in health issues – most especially pain management, but it definitely extends well beyond that.
