Part II: Lockdowns
8. Lockdowns do not prevent the spread of disease. There is little to no evidence lockdowns have any impact on limiting “Covid deaths”. If you compare regions that locked down to regions that did not, you can see no pattern at all. . . .
9. Lockdowns kill people. There is strong evidence that lockdowns – through social, economic and other public health damage – are deadlier than the “virus”. . . .
10. Hospitals were never unusually over-burdened. the main argument used to defend lockdowns is that “flattening the curve” would prevent a rapid influx of cases and protect healthcare systems from collapse. But most healthcare systems were never close to collapse at all. . . .
Part III: PCR Tests
11. PCR tests were not designed to diagnose illness. The Reverse-Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test is described in the media as the “gold standard” for Covid diagnosis. But the Nobel Prize-winning inventor of the process never intended it to be used as a diagnostic tool, and said so publicly: . . . .
12. PCR Tests have a history of being inaccurate and unreliable. The “gold standard” PCR tests for Covid are known to produce a lot of false-positive results, by reacting to DNA material that is not specific to Sars-Cov-2. . . .
13. The CT values of the PCR tests are too high. PCR tests are run in cycles, the number of cycles you use to get your result is known as your “cycle threshold” or CT value. Kary Mullis said: “If you have to go more than 40 cycles[…]there is something seriously wrong with your PCR.” . . . .
14. The World Health Organization (Twice) Admitted PCR tests produced false positives. In December 2020 WHO put out a briefing memo on the PCR process instructing labs to be wary of high CT values causing false positive results: . . . .
15. The scientific basis for Covid tests is questionable. The genome of the Sars-Cov-2 virus was supposedly sequenced by Chinese scientists in December 2019, then published on January 10th 2020. Less than two weeks later, German virologists (Christian Drosten et al.) had allegedly used the genome to create assays for PCR tests. . . .
Part IV: “Asymptomatic infection”
16. The majority of Covid infections are “asymptomatic”. From as early as March 2020, studies done in Italy were suggesting 50-75% of positive Covid tests had no symptoms. Another UK study from August 2020 found as much as 86% of “Covid patients” experienced no viral symptoms at all. . . .
17. There is very little evidence supporting the alleged danger of “asymptomatic transmission”. In June 2020, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said: . . . .
Part V: Ventilators
18. Ventilation is NOT a treatment for respiratory viruses. Mechanical ventilation is not, and never has been, recommended treatment for respiratory infection of any kind. In the early days of the pandemic, many doctors came forward questioning the use of ventilators to treat “Covid”. . . .
19. Ventilators killed people. Putting someone on a ventilator who is suffering from influenza, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or any other condition which restricts breathing or affects the lungs, will not alleviate any of those symptoms. In fact, it will almost certainly make it worse, and will kill many of them. . . .
Part VI: Masks
20. Masks don’t work. At least a dozen scientific studies have shown that masks do nothing to stop the spread of respiratory viruses. . . .
21. Masks are bad for your health. Wearing a mask for long periods, wearing the same mask more than once, and other aspects of cloth masks can be bad for your health. A long study on the detrimental effects of mask-wearing was recently published by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. . . .
22. Masks are bad for the planet. Millions upon millions of disposable masks have been used per month for over a year. A report from the UN found the Covid19 pandemic will likely result in plastic waste more than doubling in the next few years., and the vast majority of that is face masks. . . .
Part VII: Vaccines
23. Covid “vaccines” are totally unprecedented. Before 2020 no successful vaccine against a human coronavirus had ever been developed. Since then we have allegedly made 20 of them in 18 months. . . .
24. Vaccines do not confer immunity or prevent transmission. It is readily admitted that Covid “vaccines” do not confer immunity from infection and do not prevent you from passing the disease onto others. Indeed, an article in the British Medical Journal highlighted that the vaccine studies were not designed to even try and assess if the “vaccines” limited transmission. . . .
25. The vaccines were rushed and have unknown longterm effects. Vaccine development is a slow, laborious process. Usually, from development through testing and finally being approved for public use takes many years. The various vaccines for Covid were all developed and approved in less than a year. Obviously there can be no long-term safety data on chemicals which are less than a year old. . . .
26. Vaccine manufacturers have been granted legal indemnity should they cause harm. The USA’s Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP) grants immunity until at least 2024. . . .
Part VIII: Deception & Foreknowledge
27. The EU was preparing “vaccine passports” at least a YEAR before the pandemic began. Proposed COVID countermeasures, presented to the public as improvised emergency measures, have existed since before the emergence of the disease. . . .
28. A “training exercise” predicted the pandemic just weeks before it started. In October 2019 the World Economic Forum and Johns Hopkins University held Event 201. This was a training exercise based on a zoonotic coronavirus starting a worldwide pandemic. The exercise was sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and GAVI the vaccine alliance. . . .
29. Since the beginning of 2020, the Flu has “disappeared”. In the United States, since February 2020, influenza cases have allegedly dropped by over 98%. . . .
30. The elite have made fortunes during the pandemic. Since the beginning of lockdown the wealthiest people have become significantly wealthier. Forbes reported that 40 new billionaires have been created “fighting the coronavirus”, with 9 of them being vaccine manufacturers.
A sad note that underscores Fact #24, i.e., Vaccines do not confer immunity or prevent transmission, Mike Tagliere, a 39 year old fantasy football writer, died today from complications from COVID. He was vaccinated in August and then contracted COVID.
Was never worried about covid. It was crystal clear from pics of those dying in the US it was mainly morbid obese. Everyone else was by and large recovering.
I probably will lose my job over not getting vaccinated but oh well. I live debt free, well below my means so I will be fine. This isn’t even the worse the Fed has done to me.
The worst was Clinton putting a hold on the GI Bill in the 90’s to balance the budget. I put money into it, served 4 years and he ripped it from me. Horrible experience for a young man just starting out in life.
And the border wide open, it’s for damn sure not about health. Fed can go screw themselves. Not getting it. Close the damn border first.
‘If/When’ the fact-checkers say “It looks like a duck. it walks like a duck and, it talks like a duck – it’s a squirrel!” – something is amiss.
THANKS, revered Larry: OffGuardian’s unique.
Btw, after you halted your “No Quarter” site, I used to haunt it jic you’d come back. So I was thrilled when you joined our honored Colonel (THANKS, Colonel Lang!) and always look forward to your special views and memories.
We shall see whether a courts martial soon follows.
My only comment is that OffGuardian is not a newspaper, but is rather a website designed to oppose the lies and propaganda of the Guardian newspaper, once a respected source of information.
I began following the Off-Guardian about six years ago, when it was new. The started off strong and have only gotten better since. (The website gets its name from the fact that the founders were all once avid readers of The Guardian, who were later banned from commenting there for disagreeing with the narrative too vehemently.)
They were onto this Covid scam right from the start, so they have been one of my main sources since then.
Yep. Good article. It’s exactly everything I’ve been saying for over a year because that is what I see personally in the US data.
Cassandra here, 42 year health care experience and earned cynicism got gut checked also. Yet, I am still forced to live in increasingly punitive isolation and public rebuke in my home state, as one of the shunned unvaxxed. Good for the soul, I guess.
We have to be careful how we talk about it at work, even though we’re looking at our data that supports the view published in the off-guardian. Stating that the emperor has no cloths to strongly causes the Great Fear to arise in the [virtual] room. I’ve never seen anything like it. Horrible.
As chilling as Johns Hopkins pulling that CDC morbidity data analysis proving what your group has also found – no excess “covid” deaths, just relabeling the same numbers of deaths.
And Johns Hopkins claimed these results would be “too confusing to the public” to release at that time (before the election). Heads should roll on that blatant censorship and purely political justification. Science plays no favorites.
As Victor Davis Hansen just warned: Science is dying. It is now superstition, under the disguise of morality.
Eric ,time for a bioethics committee intervention? They are trained to deal with the hard questions. Can you propose that issue to a local hospital committee in an extra-curricular session?
Or even meet with the head of the committee for a private discussion. They tend to not` avoid the thorny issues. It is why they sit on the committee in the first place – they are the remaining few inside the system that still try to look behind and around the prevailing dogma.
Our committee often dealt with these same unspoken tensions – truth vs protection. Informed consent vs paternalism.
Did you hear the news about the two multi-millionaire hosts of “The View” who endangered the life of VP Kamala by appearing on stage next to their co-hosts, making a quartet of vaccinated vixens of vapidness, when a shock-n-awe announcement was made that the dynamic doubleshotted ones were, dare we say, infected? Such a media generating story of highlighting the innefectiveness of vaccines against the new vapid-varient Covid doesn’t seem to have gained much traction in the media world. I wonder why.
The Fat One who got tossed off the View is now whining she was false-negatived. Oh really?
How does that apply to the lurid covid hysteria statistics, constantly shoved in our faces. I hope they did not pay her for her time off camera, just like they are now treating all other Typhoid Marys.
My guess this was a ruse to get Kamala to broadcast from the safe space Green Room, where her staff could quickly control her with flash card talking points and throttling her cackles off camera.
“…lurid covid hysteria statistics…”
“Information operations”: That sounds even twice as scary – with no small degree of intentionality in its cold description..
Affidavit of :
Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, MD, MPH, FS, makes this affidavit, as a whistle blower under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act, Title 10 U.S.C. § 1034.
The subject matter of this Motion for a Preliminary Injunction and its devastating effects on members of the military compel me to conclude and conduct accordingly as follows:
1 a) None of the ordered Emergency Use Covid 19 vaccines can or will provide better immunity than an infection-recovered person;
2 b) All three of the EUA Covid 19 vaccines (Comirnaty is not available), in the age group and fitness level of my patients, are more risky, harmful and dangerous than having no vaccine at all, whether a person is Covid recovered or facing a Covid 19 infection;
3 c) Direct evidence exists and suggests that all persons who have received a Covid 19 Vaccine are damaged in their cardiovascular system in an irreparable and irrevocable manner;
4 d) Due to the Spike protein production that is engineered into the user’s genome, each such recipient of the Covid 19 Vaccines already has micro clots in their cardiovascular system that present a danger to their health and safety;
5 e) That such micro clots over time will become bigger clots by the very nature of the shape and composition of the Spike proteins being produced and said proteins are found throughout the user’s body, including the brain;
5 f) That at the initial stage of this damage the micro clots can only be discovered by a biopsy or Magnetic Resonance Image (“MRI”) scan;
6 g) That due to the fact that there is no functional myocardial screening currently being conducted, it is my professional opinion that substantial foreseen risks currently exist, which require proper screening of all flight crews.
7 h) That, by virtue of their occupations, said flight crews present extraordinary risks to themselves and others given the equipment they operate, munitions carried thereon and areas of operation in close proximity to populated areas.
8 i) That, without any current screening procedures in place, including any Aero Message (flight surgeon notice) relating to this demonstrable and identifiable risk, I must and will therefore ground all active flight personnel who received the vaccinations until such time as the causation of these serious systemic health risks can be more fully and adequately assessed.
9 j) That, based on the DOD’s own protocols and studies, the only two valuable methodologies to adequately assess this risk are through MRI imaging or cardio biopsy which must be carried-out.
10 k) That, in accordance with the foregoing, I hereby recommend to the Secretary of Defense that all pilots, crew and flight personnel in the military service who required hospitalization from injection or received any Covid 19 vaccination be grounded similarly for further dispositive assessment.
11 l) That this Court should grant an immediate injunction to stop the further harm to all military personnel to protect the health and safety of our active duty, reservists and National Guard troops.
Well, these are the facts, amongst other scientific evidences, that those so called “negationists”, “assassins”, ” a security threat more dangerous than ISIS”, and who “deserve being condemned to social ostracism”, “deserve being denied health care at public facilities”, “deserve being denied the right to work, exert their professions, and thus feeding therir families”, (amongst other alabances spread by the subsidized press in certain countries where the government not only bought them but also the unions and parties of the whole political landscape ), these honest, hard working people, who have passed the past two years, not only at the very front of the fight agsint Covid-19, but also stealing hours from sleeping to study and reading scientific papers fro about 16 hours a day, have been mantaining all this time…
These are “Doctors for Truth”, “Biologists for Truth”, “Policemen for Truth”, and other myriad of civil and legal associations in defense of the natural rights, children right and right to life, which have surged amongst the few who did not mind risking everything, as they deemed it was not worth even living under such harsh dictatorship was being prepared in fornt of our very eyes..
As long as this permeates the whole brainwashed public to be awakened to the truth, those responsible of the whole scam must be judged, and punished, we must not let this go scot-free.
The contracts our corrupt governments signed with these Big Pharma must be made non-binding, and bring in these Big Pharma accountable due the conspiration they all, governments, oligarcs, media and Big Pharma, formed to cause harm to so many millions of citizens, many in the flower of life with promising sport and professioanl careers, but also many elders who did not have to die yet, mothers and unborn children.
If we do not resolve this and make the culprits pay for it, we will not be able to progress to a better, or, at least, decent society.
This should be a huge new Nuremberg, we will have to look for the place to celebrate it, a stadium or something similar, as the conspirators spread all around the world.
Thank you, Mr. Johnson!
Not wishing to worry anybody here who took the jab relying on the authorities´supposed good faith, but this is the evidence at bed´s end…
Mullis’s opinion about using PCR for diagnosis is irrelevant. Citing him is ad hominem argument. He’s an attractive guy in many ways, but he’s shown some spectacularly poor judgment. In particular, his stand on the connection between HIV and AIDS.
Running PCR with excessive numbers of cycles is well known to produce false positives. This is easy to control for and was obviously in play early in the epidemic. Citing the early criticisms and the failure to correct the protocols makes a stronger argument.
Reminds me of the instant death from covid hysteria we faced in the early wildly misinformation days, when in fact it was the high mortality from misuse of ventilators – unknown at the time, and thankfully corrected later. But the media PR damage from this bit of iatrogenicity has not been corrected.
Far too many in my state still react viciously to “covid” being an automatic death sentence, and “what is the price to save just one life” used to justify continued command and control down to confiscation of private property even today by expanding rental eviction moratoriums .. for what?
“Covid” you say.
How can Mullis’ opinions on how to use the PCR test possibly be irrelevant? He invented the PCR test, for crying out loud! If you take issue with his beliefs on AIDS/HIV, that’s another matter, though I warn you that he was a Nobel-Prize-winning PhD research biologist, so maybe he’s not as uninformed on the subject as you think.
Incidentally, if anyone else here is interested in the work and opinions of Dr. Kary Mullis, here’s a long-form interview of him done back in the 90s. Well worth watching. He even gets in a few good jabs at Anthony Fauci! https://www.bitchute.com/video/w8MzvKCMcr70/
“The inventor of PCR never said it wasn’t designed to detect
So TTG – are you still sure that “COVID19 is definitely not a bioweapon”?
I would not link to someone else’s blog under normal circumstances as it’s against our host’s rules. But this open letter has been taken down and suppressed. Here’s where I was able to download the pdf before censorship.
Here’s where much of it is still available.
It’s a wake up call to me and I’m sure many others that people holding differing viewpoints from “the official and approved narrative” are not being challenged or debated about their ideas but are instead being silenced and cancelled. The opposite of free speech which is one of our country’s founding principles.
The UK, Israel, and Australia are looking like precursors of what we can expect our leaders to try to implement here in the USA. I hope that people wake up and that it doesn’t happen here as well.
If you are going to link to another person’s blog entry I want there to be a lot of your own commentary about the linked blog item.
Add italy and France to the lot of precursors, all places where percentage of people who willingly took the vaccines has been around 50% only.
In places like Spain, where the people, who either voluntary or scared by the media “guests” and “experts” on that they will lose jobs, freedom of movementm and would be denied health care, took the vaccine in an 80% , they did not go to such extent, although now the employers association are asking for mandatory vaccination to be included in the laboral agreements, that they will get since the unions there were also bought into the plot.
This is a take over and coup by corporations to establish full slavery of the human race.
There is a general strike of truck drivers called in Italy for today exteding to the 1st October, where roads will be blocked.
They have already warned the population to hoard some extra supplies in order to not suffer from the sure shortage coming.
“Spartucus” goes a little far out there towards the end, after what appeared to be science-based discourse (trust, but verify).
However that said, there is cynical value for Democrats, in order to fund their social engineering programs, if they can knock off more than a few Medicare-sucking, pension-exploiting, social security reprobate grannies, does have some fiscal appeal to them. The trillion dollar unfunded public pension debt is immediately cut back with every premature demise of a senior citizen recipient.
………Spartacus warns: “This was then used by the utterly depraved and psychopathic aristocratic class who rule over us as an excuse to coerce people into accepting an injected poison which may be a depopulation agent, a mind control/pacification agent in the form of injectable “smart dust”, or both in one. They believe they can get away with this by weaponizing the social stigma of vaccine refusal. They are incorrect.
Their motives are clear and obvious to anyone who has been paying attention. These megalomaniacs have raided the pension funds of the free world. Wall Street is insolvent and has had an ongoing liquidity crisis since the end of 2019. The aim now is to exert total, full-spectrum physical, mental, and financial control over humanity before we realize just how badly we’ve been extorted by these maniacs…………
Ultimately Sparatcus reveals his/her agenda. That is not a science article. Unless it is political science. Much like BLM or Green New Deal, only at the end of their lengthy manifestos to they get to their real arguments: more union jobs, more union dues paying members to fund more union-backed political candidates.
If I told you a couple of years ago that in the near future millions of people around the world would abandon their right to bodily sovereignty to their governments, in return for the right to participate in society, I expect you would have described my forecast as “out there”.
“Spartacus” has described a set of means, motive & opportunity to achieve the Great Reset and I broadly agree with the plausibility of all 3. I don’t know about the brain controlling nano-particles stuff, but that part isn’t a stretch. Once you’ve accepted that the government has the right to inject you with drugs of its choice, so that you may participate in society (mandates/passports) why wouldn’t a government concerned with “White rage” choose to add mood controlling therapeutics to the list at some point?
To skeptics I would turn the question around: Imagine you are an utterly ruthless misanthropic Malthusian, how would you go about replacing free market capitalism with a system of Neo-feudal serfdom (the WEF’s public agenda)? You think the soon-to-be-serfs will willingly give up their property and remaining liberties?
Some readers here seem to think the Great Reset is somehow not a reality. To them I’d ask why a group of the most powerful people in the World get together each your to plan it and why their GR slogans are being repeated right now by every government in the Anglosphere.
Going from 2 weeks to flatten the curve to 99% vaccination mandates or else you can no longer participate in society has been a remarkable 18 month journey – yes, it could be said the great Re-Set has already happened.
But not without the willing participation of a large part of the society -who voted for this.
How long and by what process did the nation let itself get gripped by McCarthyism? Much fear, much damage and much isolation of certain members of society using rumors, fear and shunning. Wonder how closely this parallels the dynamics of “covidism”.
McCarthy to Covidism. Useful to compare and contrast including social, economic and historical context.
Post WWII dislocation and 20th Rise of US dominance dislocations vs. 21th century Rise of China dominance dislocations?
With all this breathless bioweapon talk, who’s pushing the Covid fear porn now? For an influenza that is asymptomatic or mild for most, is serious for only a minority of the elderly and already ill and doesn’t incapacitate a large number of military age men, it’s a piss poor bioweapon. You guys reading every bullshit story on Facebook or other social media crap need to make up your mind. Is it a dreaded bioweapon or a nothing burger? Unplug and read a newspaper for Christ’s sake.
The growing evidence is that it is man-made. It wasn’t designed to be a bioweapon like say anthrax. However, it created the casus belli for the fear-porn driven by governments, corporate media including Big Tech and Big Pharma that has definitely led to authoritarianism in the west.
Fauci played a major role in both the creation of the virus, obfuscating its origins as well as in the instigation of the fear-porn.
Yep: Agreed TTG. I would also spend some time with journals and preprints. My feeling is if you aren’t smart enough to work your way through a journal article, you ought to keep your yap shut.
There are a lot better ways to design a bioweapon.
Not a bioweapon, a weaponized biological phenomenon.
They created it for whatever reason. It causes a new form of respiratory illness that kills the weakest/oldest. It escaped the lab. It represented a political opportunity for democrats and a massive profit making opportunity for Big Pharma. Evil people seized on those and other opportunities.
Vultures congregate on road kill. That doesn’t mean they conspired with drivers to create road kill.
TTG, I agree that the latter part of the Spartacus letter reads like a Q-Anon diatribe. And you are correct that Covid is not the killer disease as portrayed by the media and the powers that be. So why the massive and continuing lock-downs? Why this increasing urgency to get every human jabbed with experimental drugs that haven’t been properly tested for long term side effects and have short term side effects that are being ignored as much as possible? The VAERS database is lit up with adverse effects from these jabs. Why aren’t those in charge of this mass “vaccination” effort at least pausing to take a look and study these side effects? You agree that Covid mostly affects the elderly or those already ill with comorbidities. Why the rush to jab our children when they are least at risk for the disease? It’s not Covid that’s the issue, it’s the response from our leaders. Are they truly this evil or are they just incompetent?
The ‘vaccines’ are the real bioweapon. Covid-19 was just a hoax.
A further addendum of Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long’s affadavit ‘curiously’ alongside … Well truthfully I haven’t yet read what’s seemingly purported to be an injunction:
Will anyone who promoted covid fear-porn hysteria be held to account? How about governments including public health authorities who caused even greater harms with lockdowns? What about assaults on citizens for not wearing masks outdoors by armed security officials as we have seen in Australia? How about Southern California government officials wasting citizens money by pouring sand over beach skate parks?
California voters had a chance to hold Newsom accountable for his covid command and control hysteria; instead they backed him up over 60% to less than 40%. Strange times – but then far too many in California are now dependent upon government pay checks or benefits checks.
Have you seen the Spartacus letter anonymously posted by someone (or team) that has a very elaborate knowledge. The PDF has been deleted but available to view here https://web.archive.org/web/20210927164647/https://www.docdroid.net/kZZXcGS/covid-19-the-spartacus-letter-pdf
Real sum of all fears stuff. This pretty much accords with my working hypothesis of what is going on: Unimaginable evil on such a scale it is easy to dismiss it as simply impossible. Must read.
Yup. Klaus and the Party of Davos pondering what “normal” means. Not what free citizens contemplate and definitely not what Jefferson contemplated.
Unlawful search and seizure: government mandating the use of an experimental agent that takes over one’s immune system, under penalty of losing government benefits. .
…..”With regard to the Pfizer vaccine, “One of the primary ingredients of the Lipid Nanoparticle delivery system is “ALC 1035.” This is a toxic material. It “comprises between 30-50% of the total ingredients.” Among a number of serious possible effects is this reality: “Caution: Product has not been fully validated for medical applications. For research use only.”………..”
Rest of graphic testimonies of police abuse of people in their own homes, of Italy truck drivers strike, of mistreatment of nurses ans doctors in France, and so on, are in Telegram, a social media the German governmetn wants now to control too, after they have controled YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok and WhatsApp….
Post this here for walrus to watch, since he was adreesing me and denying the situation is so in Australia at another Covid past thread…Sorry to link to another site, but this is the only one reporting on this….
I wonder how in the Earth walrus knows this is fake when he is relaxing at the country side, out of Melbourne and Sidney, where the people are fighting for their rights…and his too…
Alethia, I say again to you and others, READ THE ORIGINAL SOURCES. The story you link to is from a media aggregator “the duran”. The article is by the owner of the website and it states prominently:
“ The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.”
All he has done is posted a link to a website called “reclaim the net” and an article by one “cindy harper”. Cindy harper and the website are both advocates of free speech – which is laudable.
Unfortunately for Cindy, she hasn’t listened very well to either of the videos, nor does she understand law.
Both of those videos are made by alleged protesters who were arrested under the public health act at some protest. They have been charged and been to court where they have been granted bail.
The conditions of their bail include (for all protesters) that you refrain from attending any more protests or participate in their organisation. In other words, you agree to stop what you were doing. If you don’t comply, then it’s back to jail until your case is heard.
It is important to understand that the initial offence resulted from a charge under the public health act, but once you have asked for and received bail, any further offence is under the bail act which is a whole other matter.
I’ve linked to the story of Monica Smits as a relevant example.
“Ms Smit is unwilling to sign an undertaking … it appears at this stage that’s the course she wants to adopt,” Mr White said.
Bail conditions magistrate Luisa Bazzani imposed included barring Ms Smit from publishing anything that could incite breaches of the health orders.
She was also ordered to follow a court-imposed curfew between 7pm and 6am and remove any material that incited opposition to the health officer’s directions within 48 hours.
“I do wish I’d known before we spent all this time on bail that your client was intending to refuse to sign a bail order,” Ms Bazzani said.
At least 4000 people went to the August 21 rally held in the Melbourne CBD, and Ms Smit is alleged to have encouraged people to attend the protests through authoring and transmitting posts on the encrypted Telegram app, prosecutor Anthony Albore told the court.”
And in any case, the police are far too few and too busy to be running around suppressing free speech.
“It is important to understand that the initial offence resulted from a charge under the public health act, but once you have asked for and received bail, any further offence is under the bail act which is a whole other matter.”
A very important point. What if that original act is declared unconstitutional?
“5. Operation of the Constitution and laws
“This Act, and all laws made by the Parliament of the Commonwealth under the Constitution, shall be binding on the courts, judges, and people of every State and of every part of the Commonwealth, notwithstanding anything in the laws of any State;…”
I guess that settles that.
“Bail conditions magistrate Luisa Bazzani imposed included barring Ms Smit from publishing anything that could incite breaches of the health orders.”
So the judge thinks Australians don’t have speech rights either. Apparently neither does the ALRC.
I think you folks will be heading to Edgehill again soon. Good thing you rounded up all the guns for everyone’s safety.
Fred, I’m not too worried. Guns aren’t a burning issue here and plenty of people have them despite what you may have been told.
As for free speech, you are not free to incite others to break the law, at least, while you are on bail.
Americans vastly over-estimate hospitalization rate for “covid”.
With misrepresentation numbers this high across the political spectrum, no wonder covid porn continues to choke this country senseless:
