5 COVID-19 and “vaccine” headlines that mainstream media suppressed last week

From thecovidblog.com

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Centers for Disease Control Director Michelle Walensky grabbed headlines last week. In one of the most pathetic displays of fearmongering and propaganda to date, she spoke of “impending doom.” She said she is “scared,” and pretended like she was emotional during the entire production.

European and U.S. databases show nearly 10,000 total deaths from experimental COVID-19 shots

From thecovidblog.com

Crimes against humanity

A total of 9,667 deaths after COVID-19 shots have been reported to EudraVigilance and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), according to Health Impact News. These online databases facilitate reporting of adverse reactions to experimental COVID-19 shots in Europe and the United States, respectively.

There is no simple way to tabulate results in EudraVigilance. So Health Impact News did the tedious tasks of manually compiling the data. The Pfizer/BioNTech shot has caused 3,760 reported deaths as of April 10. Moderna is responsible for 1,801 deaths, while AstraZeneca sits at 1,086 deaths. Johnson & Johnson is not widely used in Europe. But it is responsible for 15 deaths. All of the shot are responsible for nearly 300,000 total injuries as well.

VAERS: Two-year-old baby in Virginia dead six days after second experimental Pfizer mRNA shot … MSM silent as usual

So difficult to fathom why a parent would offer up their precious 2 year old for experimentation with a jab that has had no long term testing… but then it’s been advertised everywhere as ‘safe and effective’ hasn’t it? EWR

From thecovidblog.com

VIRGINIA, USAJust when you thought this whole COVID-19 “vaccine” agenda couldn’t go any lower, it has now set a new precedent.

Pfizer and Moderna are both running clinical trials for their experimental mRNA shots on 11,000 children as young as six months old. Moderna calls its study KidCOVE. Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca are also using children as guinea pigs. These companies have no moral fiber and are driven solely by profits. That is a given. But the parents are something beyond surreal.

It was unknown to The COVID Blog prior to this article that something called the “Dr. United States of America pageant” existed. Women with doctorate degrees are judged based on evening gowns, how photogenic they are, etc. It’s like Miss America for doctors. The reigning Dr. United States of America is Michelle Lynam. She is an anesthesiologist in Midlothian, Virginia. Lynam posts creepy videos on Facebook fawning over experimental shots. But what’s even more disturbing is what this woman is subjecting her children to these experimental shots.

UK Government releases shocking report on COVID vaccine side effects

The UK Government have released a report highlighting adverse reactions to both the Pfizer and Oxford / Astrazeneca that have occurred since the rollout began on the 8th December and it does not make for pleasant reading.

The report has collated data inputted up to the 24th January 2021 via the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme. At this point an estimated 5.4 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 1.5 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine had been administered, and around 0.5 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, had been administered.

Possible adverse event outcomes of COVID-19 Vaccines – (FDA DRAFT Working list)

https://www.fda.gov/media/143557/download

Note: this list, straight from the FDA data as per the link, is being ‘fact checked’ by Facebook as false news. Lacking context they say. I note this because it demonstrates how the censorship of truth is now being further ramped up. Knowing these possible outcomes is not misleading it is telling the truth. Still … only the official narrative that ‘vaccines are safe’ ‘period’ is now acceptable on social media. Social media is today’s ‘town square’. It is where people exchange information. We are descending in my opinion, into a dark abyss of corruption. Whilst I know it is a human right to choose either way with medical interventions, it is also a human right to know the risks. They do not appear to want you to know the risks. Good luck people. Do your homework. EWR

Aussie Navy in COVID Jab Cover Up After Mass Adverse Reactions?

“Our ‘friends’ in the mainstream media have been too quick to tell us deaths are assumed to be only “coincidentally” associated with vaccination before all the evidence is in. This raises an obvious question: Is the assumption that the experimental COVID-19 vaccines are never the cause of death scientifically justified or is it a symptom of bias?”
principia-scientific.com

This is a developing story.  Mainstream media pulls original story of Australian sailors on HMAS Sydney suffering widespread adverse reactions to COVID19 vaccinations. Sanitized version refers only to “mild side effects” despite the fact the ship’s crew needed hospitalization.

This latest setback for the pro-vaccine lobby follows soon after the Australian government performs a U-turn on mass vaccination policy the day after the Australian Health Minister falls ‘critically ill’ immediately after getting his COVID jab.

So, whenever the mainstream media conspires to quietly ‘disappear’ web pages of a story it has already reported on you can bet something far bigger and worrisome is being covered up.

In this latest case, the UK’s Daily Mail yesterday pulled a story from their pages about adverse COVID jab reactions among the crew of an Australian war ship.

Direct from Australia, a valued contact told us by email: “Our health minister is still in the hospital from the day after he had his injection! Not a word about the navy hospitalisations.  What a way to take out a country’s military… In just one jab!” Our contact refers to the story earlier this week of Australian Health Minister, Gregg Hunt, who was taken seriously ill  in a “critical condition” after he received his dose of the untested, experimental vaccine. In a statement on Tuesday evening his office stated that Minister Hunt had: “been admitted to hospital with a suspected infection, he is being kept overnight for observation and is being administered antibiotics and fluid.”

NZ Herald is playing the tried & true conspiracy card

The NZ Herald is playing its ace card … ‘CONSPIRACY’. It’s a tried and true go-to with a gullible public who don’t bother to really investigate any independent information. They have of course been indoctrinated for so long by a complicit media they wouldn’t know how controlled their sources of information are.


And remember our PM has told us the government is the only source of reliable information. Really? No investigation of any other opinion or independent scientific data than the government’s? Read NZ lawyer Sue Grey’s comment on that:

“Since when was it ok for our government to be our self-proclaimed “only source of truth”. Just like Orwell predicted in “1984”. They have forgotten they represent the people. Imagine if they have got it all really really wrong… and it was really just a hyped up “flu”. What a massive creation of fear. What a tragic disconnection of people from their families, friends and support networks, and what a massive transfer of resources from NZ families and small business owners to big-VaxCo and their compliant mates. It’s time to get some balance and hear different perspectives. Let’s listen to the concerned doctors and scientists on TV1 news. Let’s hear the VAERS data discussed by Radio NZ by commentators who are not bedazzled by the PR spin that every single death and injury is a coincidence. Let’s talk about the freedom of choice over medical treatment and why body sovereignty is important. Let’s talk about the Nuremberg code…Let’s trust our people to work it out for themselves, rather than censor information that challenges the propaganda.”
END QUOTE.

As a thinking individual, no matter what your point of view, at either end of the spectrum, the one sole source sounds pretty tyrannical to me. It’s a bit like how Hitler took away everyone’s radio.

Timely perhaps for a reminder from the 1800s on the trustworthiness of MSM:

John Swinton (1830-1901) was the chief editorial journalist at the New York Times from 1860 to 1870 and for the New York Sun from 1875-1897. In 1880 while as a guest of honour at a banquet of leading journalists , he was offered a ‘toast to the independent press’ and he outraged his colleagues by replying:

“There is no such thing, at this state of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours, my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to  sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes”. END QUOTE.
SOURCE

Now the good news I see is that some are breaking ranks. I read a comment today (yes social media folks, the only place currently where truth gets an airing) … someone said they heard a co presenter on NZ radio cut short as he began to voice caution about some of the vax concerns. Then we have all the MDs breaking ranks (those who really take seriously their oaths not to harm, see here also) … scientists also following. Whistleblowers like ex Pfizer Dr Mike Yeadon. All taken together it’s getting a bit hard to dismiss as conspiracy. I mean really, why would a former Chief Science Officer of Pfizer be spinning conspiracy theories? What ever would he have to gain? Rather like the ‘just a coincidence’ explanation we are hearing ad finitum about the many possible adverse health effects, some of them death, that have followed the said vax. NZ’s own vaccine expert Petousis Harris has told us there’s not been a single death attributable to the vax and that there is no proven connection between adverse events and the vaccine. Coincidence is not cutting it any more. The numbers are too big. I’m thinking now of the little guy who stopped the crack in the dam with his finger.

Anyhow to return to the article and the point of it. Some serious truthers from NZ have published the real news about all of the above on good old fashioned paper, like it used to be decades ago. Before the easily censored internet. As the sources are being culled and/or shadow banned and our route to truth sites is being controlled … so we have a return to a format that can be stored in our bookshelves and retrieved, re read, shared or whatever til the cows come home. A big thank you to the team at Uncensored!

This is particularly on point for the elderly who are top of the list for the jab, many of whom do not use the internet. Help them get informed before they make a decision, same as we would expect for any medical intervention. (You could also print and share the info from here).

BBC: “[COVID] vaccines have been tested rigourously & found to be safe” … CDC: “15,24 dead & 31,079 injured” reported post vaccine

More information from your esteemed leaders: two sources that, rather than directing you to read all the available information on the said vaccination, the Lion King video clearly aimed at children, smears those who want to consider independent options with the old “anti vaxxer” go-to. And a parting shot at the “conspiracy theorists” on chips and the like. Promising things will go back to how they were when no, the information I’ve been seeing does not guarantee this at all.
Note: there is news currently of a live Lion King show coming to NZ. So will this little plug be included I wonder? Interesting timing. Watch at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iqDEWRStyk
See also this video posted by the From Rome blog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dsdrzi3MEoc

And then there’s the BBC info telling us confidently that vaccines are rigourously tested and found to be safe:


“It’s okay to have questions” they say, but “talk to your Doctor or people you trust” (not Doctors mind who depart from the official narrative? Yes there are many). It’s claimed the vaccines have been “tested rigourously” with nary a mention that the normal time frame of 7-10 years to develop one, has been short cut to 12 months, skipping the animal testing altogether? (The links cited are mainstream. Very difficult now to search for independent info on that now. All labeled as anti-vax or conspiracy).

Found to be safe? Please note this data below on adverse reactions, a mere tip of the iceberg if we are to believe the VAERS figure from CDC (and only 1% report).

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has Quietly Changed the Definition of ‘Vaccine’ to Include the COVID-19 mRNA Injection

Thanks to theredelephants.com for alerting us to this change:

“Merriam-Webster dictionary has quietly changed the definition of the term ‘vaccine’ to include components of the COVID-19 mRNA injection. The definition of vaccine was specifically changed due to the COVID-19 injection.”

Further comment from EWR
Below is a screen shot of the current amended version (the old is also in the article above), and below here are current examples of the new mRNA variety used in sentences … and all of the articles are referring to current events with the roll out. This is very directly influencing the reader:



Examples of vaccine in a Sentence
Recent Examples on the Web Will Ohioans still be able to get the vaccine at their pharmacies? — Robert Higgs, cleveland, “Can it be done?

Words of the week then feature in the dictionary’s entry for 2020

You guessed it at the top of the list … the mRNA one produced by Pfizer:

The Words of the Week – 11/13/20

Some of the words that defined the week ending November 13, 2020


leaves falling on ground

The good. The bad. The semantically vague.

‘Vaccine’

Reports that Pfizer had developed a promising vaccine for the coronavirus caused an upswing in searches for that word.

On Monday, BioNTech and Pfizer announced that a vaccine for the coronavirus developed by Dr. Sahin and his team was more than 90 percent effective in preventing the disease among trial volunteers who had no evidence of having previously been infected.
— David Gelles, The New York Times, 10 Nov. 2020

Vaccine is define as “a preparation of killed microorganisms, living attenuated organisms, or living fully virulent organisms that is administered to produce or artificially increase immunity to a particular disease.” The word may be traced to the Latin vacca (meaning “cow”); the earliest vaccines, for smallpox, were developed from cowpox pustules.
_______________________________________________________________________

Here is wikipedia’s take which simply includes the mRNA piece (ie they haven’t changed the definition, just included the new mRNA variety):

RNA

Main article: RNA vaccine

An mRNA vaccine (or RNA vaccine) is a novel type of vaccine which is composed of the nucleic acid RNA, packaged within a vector such as lipid nanoparticles.[48] Among the COVID-19 vaccines are a number of RNA vaccines under development to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and some have received emergency use authorization in some countries. For example, the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines have emergency use authorization in the US.[49][50][51]

Experimental

Electroporation system for experimental “DNA vaccine” delivery

A number of innovative vaccines are also in development and in use:

  • Dendritic cell vaccines combine dendritic cells with antigens in order to present the antigens to the body’s white blood cells, thus stimulating an immune reaction. These vaccines have shown some positive preliminary results for treating brain tumors [52] and are also tested in malignant melanoma.[53]
  • DNA vaccination – The proposed mechanism is the insertion and expression of viral or bacterial DNA in human or animal cells (enhanced by the use of electroporation), triggering immune system recognition. Some cells of the immune system that recognize the proteins expressed will mount an attack against these proteins and cells expressing them. Because these cells live for a very long time, if the pathogen that normally expresses these proteins is encountered at a later time, they will be attacked instantly by the immune system. One potential advantage of DNA vaccines is that they are very easy to produce and store.
  • Recombinant vector – by combining the physiology of one micro-organism and the DNA of another, immunity can be created against diseases that have complex infection processes. An example is the RVSV-ZEBOV vaccine licensed to Merck that is being used in 2018 to combat ebola in Congo.[54]
  • T-cell receptor peptide vaccines are under development for several diseases using models of Valley Fever, stomatitis, and atopic dermatitis. These peptides have been shown to modulate cytokine production and improve cell-mediated immunity.
  • Targeting of identified bacterial proteins that are involved in complement inhibition would neutralize the key bacterial virulence mechanism.[55]
  • The use of plasmids has been validated in preclinical studies as a protective vaccine strategy for cancer and infectious diseases. However, in human studies, this approach has failed to provide clinically relevant benefit. The overall efficacy of plasmid DNA immunization depends on increasing the plasmid’s immunogenicity while also correcting for factors involved in the specific activation of immune effector cells.[56]

While most vaccines are created using inactivated or attenuated compounds from micro-organisms, synthetic vaccines are composed mainly or wholly of synthetic peptides, carbohydrates, or antigens.
______________________________________________________________________

Cambridge Dictionary has the original definition but does include examples of sentences using ‘experimental vaccine’ (all ‘safe’):

Examples of experimental vaccine

These words are often used together. You can go to the definition of experimental or the definition of vaccine. Or, see other combinations with vaccine. These examples are from corpora and from sources on the web. Any opinions in the examples do not represent the opinion of the Cambridge Dictionary editors or of Cambridge University Press or its licensors. None of the animals in the 2 experimentalvaccine groups exhibited any clinical symptoms. From the Cambridge English Corpus This method has been subsequently applied to serological diagnostic data obtained from an experimentalvaccine trial. From the Cambridge English Corpus It was put to us that, consequent upon that, cattle had been vaccinated with the experimental vaccine and that other cattle who were running with them had become infected. From the Hansard archive She was given an experimentalvaccine never before used on humans. From Wikipedia
____________________________________________________________________

So all in all, from this peek into definitions, quietly indeed, the definition in Merriam Webster has been changed to include the new experimental injection which some independent scientists and doctors are saying, is not a vaccine. For further independent info on that listen to this lecture.

United Nations Launches Site Called ‘Verified’ Where 110,000 ‘Information Volunteers’ Will Help To Control Narrative About COVID-19 Vaccine

The global elites at the United Nations and the World Economic Forum are very upset that you might accidentally stumble across the truth about the Messenger 33 coronavirus vaccine, the mind-numbing side effects and the coming digital identification, so they have launched a site called ‘Verified’ to tell you what your opinion is. Not only that, they have so far recruited over 110,000 ‘information volunteers’ to make sure you don’t stray too far off the official script. In Nazi Germany, it was called the Ministry of Propaganda, in 2020 it’s called the Ministry of Misinformation. “George Orwell, please report to the courtesy counter, George Orwell to the courtesy counter, please.” 

The UN is also encouraging social media influencers to help spread real news about the pandemic. There is a cute little hashtag that goes with the ‘Verified’ site, called #PledgeToPause, and what are they actually asking you to do? They are asking you to, when you feel the urge to do some independent, critical thinking, to ‘pledge to pause’ those thoughts until your sanity returns, and return back to the fold of the other mindless drones who think the United Nations has their best interests at heart. You are living in a movie, and everything you are watching is scripted theater, never forget that. Also never forget that all of this is the unfolding of bible prophecy.

Who really rules over you & how it works

COVID 19 – Scamdemic – Part 1

Among many similar globalist states, The UK State is a public-private partnership between government, financial institutions, multinational corporations, global think tanks, and well funded third sector organisations, such as so called non governmental organisations (NGO’s) and large international charities. Through a labyrinthine structure of direct funding, grant making and philanthropy, the UK State is a cohesive globalist organisation that works with selected academics, scientific institutions and mainstream media (MSM) outlets to advance a tightly controlled, predetermined narrative. This designed consensus serves the the interests and global ambitions of a tiny group of disproportionately wealthy people.

What ‘they’ have planned for your future ?

A must watch. David Icke has researched world events and plans (particularly of the 1%) for thirty years. As he points out, what is now materializing right in plainer sight is a plan that is not hidden at all. They have been discussing it for a long time. For the awake it is about AI, artificial intelligence. They literally want us connected to their tech … it is really about complete control of all you do in particular your thoughts. Controlled thus far by perception via control of media, they wish to enter your heads literally. The masks are helping you to lose your identity. This is now right upon us. EWR

Coronavirus Lockdown and What You Are Not Being Told – Part 2

From off-guardian.org

In Part 1 we looked at the reasons why questioning the coronavirus lockdown, despite the ever present allegation, does not demonstrate a callous disregard for human life. We are going to expand on why it doesn’t in this article.

I am based in the UK so much of this discussion relates to the decisions of the British State, but this is a global policy agenda and similar policies are found across the developed world. Effectively a small group of policy decision makers have placed an estimated 3.5 billion people under house arrest. It is only possible for them to do so with our consent. Consent is carefully cultivated by controlling the information we are given.

Crackdown lockdown downtown: fiddling case numbers while Rome burns

by Jon Rappoport

April 22, 2020

(To join Jon’s email list, click here.)

In today’s episode of CDC/WHO holds the world hostage and builds a new wing on its mystical temple of lying science, while trance-induced billions stare at their TV sets for the latest fabrications, we begin here—

Author Michael Fumento sets off an explosion in his recent article on the failure of epidemic models: “’The … crisis we face is unparalleled in modern times,’ said the World Health Organization’s assistant director, while its director general proclaimed it ‘likely the greatest peacetime challenge that the United Nations and its agencies have ever faced.’ This was based on a CDC computer model projection predicting as many as 1.4 million deaths from just two countries.”

“So when did they say this about COVID-19? Trick question: It was actually about the Ebola virus in Liberia and Sierra Leone five years ago, and the ultimate death toll was under 8,000.”

Bang.

Well, look, the CDC and WHO have to stay in business, right? They can’t allow a fallow period of no pandemics. They HAVE TO predict dire consequences. Otherwise, some people might start questioning their budgets. It’s a fight for bureaucratic survival, and if millions or billions of people have to lose their jobs and income and freedom in the process, so be it.

Here is a key paragraph from the CDC’s latest brain-twisting definition of a COVID case. As you’ll see, it allows the counting of cases where no confirmatory diagnostic test has been done on a patient at all. Have to inflate those numbers, right? How else can an agency justify its existence?

“As of April 14, 2020, CDC case counts and death counts include both confirmed and probable cases and deaths…A confirmed case or death is defined by meeting confirmatory laboratory evidence for COVID-19. A probable case or death is defined by i) meeting clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19; or ii) meeting presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence; or iii) meeting vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID19.”

If you spend too long trying to decipher the meaning of every phrase and term in that definition, you might find yourself in the labyrinth of a psych ward. But it IS obvious that a COVID case without a confirming diagnostic test is being welcomed on board. “Sure, why not, join the party.”

Meanwhile, out front, on television, and quietly in the Oval Office, petty bureaucrat, numbers massager, and interim president of the United States of Crackdown Lockdown, Anthony Fauci, can switch case numbers up and down and sideways. He can shovel it high and deep to his heart’s content. All in all, his job is keeping the public health gravy train moving, while covering the caboose (ass) of that train.

Fauci, New England Journal of Medicine, February 28, 2020, “Navigating the Uncharted”:

“If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968)…”

In case there is any doubt, those “pandemic influenza seasons” of 1957 and 1968 did NOT result in any lockdowns. People went outdoors. They mingled. They sat in stadiums. They went to their jobs.

Fauci, March 30, 2020, Reason Magazine: “Jake Tapper asked Fauci how many COVID-19 cases the United States can expect to see, ‘To be honest with you, we don’t really have any firm idea,’ Fauci said. ‘There are things called models. And when someone creates a model, they put in various assumptions. And the model is only as good and as accurate as your assumptions…Looking at what we’re seeing now,’ Fauci said, ‘we’re going to have millions of cases’ in the United States, and it is reasonable to expect ‘between 100,000 and 200,000’ deaths. But he cautioned that ‘I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection, when it’s such a moving target, that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people.’ Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House’s COVID-19 task force, yesterday cited similar but somewhat less alarming estimates, saying ‘between 80,000 and 160,000, maybe even potentially 200,000 people,’ could be killed by COVID-19 in the United States.”

Uh huh. Right. Sure. Bad flu season. Really bad flu season. Millions of cases. Between 80,000 and 200,000 thousand dead in the US. Depends on the definition of a COVID case and how jacked up the numbers are. Depends on which computer model and projection is used.

Depends on whether the talking heads decide it’s a day for tough love or just plain tough. Either way, some version of fiction is going to run like sewer water out of their mouths.

It’s Christmas and birthday and Thanksgiving all rolled into one for the CDC and WHO. They’ve finally gotten what they wanted, all through the parade of AIDS, West Nile, SARS, bird flu, Swine Flu, Zika, and the terrorist smallpox scare:

MASS IMPRISONMENT OF THE POPULATION.

And as I’ve said from the beginning, the key moment was the Chinese Regime locking down 50 million people overnight. That was the signal and the model and the “breakthrough.” “They did it, so we can do it, too.”

All hype, all theater, all the time.

How they play us: A 1981 book predicted a deadly bacteriological weapon called “Wuhan-400” !

“Now, we would all like to know how Dean Koontz, the world’s sixth-most highly paid author, who ties with John Grisham, at $25 million annually, knew of Wuhan and even named the deadly bacteriological weapon “Wuhan-400,” 40 years ago?  We would like to have a chat with him about his “prophetic visions”on what seems to have striking similarities with the nVoC-2019 Coronavirus.”

Article from leozagami.com

by Leo Zagami

I spent the last few hours studying The Eyes of Darkness,a prophetic thriller originally published in 1981 about a deadly bacteriological weapon called “Wuhan-400” named this way because it was developed at the RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan. The book in question was written by the best selling American writer Dean Koontz, and was originally published under the pseudonym Leigh Nichols.

The book focuses on a mother who sets out on a quest to find out if her son Danny died one year ago, or if he was still alive. Many of Dean Koontz’s books have appeared on The New York TimesBest Seller list and have been adapted for television or the big screen, but not this one. According to Koontz in the afterword of a 2008 paperback reissue, television producer Lee Rich purchased the rights for this book along with others and The Eyes of Darknesswas assigned for a possible tv adaptation with the female writing team of Ann Powell and Rose Schacht, co-writers of Drug Wars: The Camarena Story, but for some mysterious reason they could never deliver an acceptable script.

In this fictional account, the protagonist, Christina Evans, the mother of Danny, will eventually find her child kept alive in a military facility after being accidentally contaminated with man-made micro-organisms created at the research center in Wuhan. Secretly researched in a U.S. military laboratory for Biological and chemical recombinant DNA experiments”to try and reproduce the dangerous virus after “a Chinese scientist named Li Chen defected to the United States, carrying a diskette record of China’s most important and dangerous: new biological weapon in a decade.”

So the origins of this fictional virus denominated “Wuhan-400” are connected with genetic engineering, which is the science of manipulating genetic material from an organism. The first artificial genetic modification was accomplished in the U.S. by Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen in 1972, but the Chinese got involved from the beginning in this growing industry that created the first genetically engineered plant as well as infamous Genetically Modified food. The virus in question is described by Dr. Carlton Dombey, one of the doctors in charge at the military laboratory described in the book, in the following way to the mother of Danny and Elliot Stryker, her partner who once worked for Army Intelligence: “Wuhan-400 is a perfect weapon. It afflicts only human beings. No other living creature can carry it. And like syphilis, Wuhan-400 can’t survive outside a living human body for longer than a minute, which means it can’t permanently contaminate objects or entire places the way anthrax and other virulent microorganisms can. And when the host expires, the Wuhan-400 within him perishes a short while later, as soon as the temperature of the corpse drops below eighty-six degrees Fahrenheit. Do you see the advantage of all this?”

Elliot Stryker replies: “If I understand you, the Chinese could use Wuhan-400 to wipe out a city or a country, and then there wouldn’t be any need for them to conduct a tricky and expensive decontamination before they moved in and took over the conquered territory.”

The other never mentioned cause of insect die off

Chemtrail Artifacts: Real Cause of Global Insect Die-Off Covered Up By Media

From globalskywatch.com

I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

A year ago, there were easily 1,000 insects hanging around my porch light at night. Now, you are lucky to find 100. This change occurred in the past 12 months.

I personally witnessed the bee die-off in two separate locations. Both die-offs occurred within 12 months of dramatic increases in chemtrail spray activity. I also witnessed a ladybug colony die during a historic 3-day peak in chemtrail spraying. The spraying was so intense, that it finally prompted me to contact the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

Let me clear. All 3 sudden insect die-offs I witnessed occurred in direct correlation with the chemical aerosol spray program.

The Telegraph came out with a story 2 days ago that attempts to explain away the dramatic decrease in insect-splat on cars. They suggest that it may be due to an increase in the number of cars, or to new, more aerodynamic shapes of cars.

Our world is in huge trouble, and it is the direct result of chemical aerosol (“chemtrail”) spraying. Propagandic journalism is certainly do it’s part to cover up the largest crime against humanity in human history.

More revelations on NZ’s corporate LG model that’s controlling the democracy of your local councils … from the stonewalled outgoing Mayor of Horowhenua

After a very unfriendly ‘farewell’ if you could call it that, Horowhenua’s former Mayor, Michael Feyen, speaks out about what is really happening inside your local councils.

RELATED:
THE MAYOR WHO HAS HAD TO RUN HIS OWN MEDIA CAMPAIGN SHARES SOME INSIGHTS INTO THE CURRENT STATE OF LG IN NZ

Stonewalled from the outset, this Mayor, also a former councilor who blew the whistle on among other things pollution, and (now coming out for example, & curiously right after elections the issue of the cracks in the new HDC building that HDC declined to have examined at no cost). Add to that monitored & intercepted emails, a secret $1mill  payout to one of the local Iwi, and exclusion from the pensioner housing sale planning committee.  As many of us are aware democracy is fading into oblivion in NZ & we have the mere illusion only of the former status quo. This is a must listen on the machinations of both LGNZ (& govt?) from an insider. There will be more to come. See our LG Watch pages & search HDC in ‘categories’ for Horowhenua articles. EWR

The Mayor who has had to run his own media campaign shares some insights into the current state of LG in NZ

These videos are from the Mayor of Horowhenua, Michael Feyen. This is a ‘people’s Mayor’ who, like his former deputy Cr Ross Campbell, seems as much at home digging a haangi or drying dishes as he is wearing his mayoral chains. Just into his first term as Mayor however he had most of the councilors go public with a statement saying they supported not him but the CEO. For background to this situation read this article.  His selected Deputy Mayor was unseated just hours into his term for speaking on social media about what looked like insider trading (and that hasn’t gone away, see Ross Campbell’s recent updates). This is all not surprising in light of the fact that these two have blown the whistle on quite a lot of things they saw as ‘not right’ in the course of their work in Council. Council pollution was another issue they highlighted. And so come this campaign the Mayor has had next to no coverage by media. Stone walled & neutered as he puts it himself, he has had a difficult uphill battle with a council that seems more intent on the business of property development than the interests both he & his former deputy would have liked to focus on. A keen supporter of retaining the Horowhenua community housing for instance, Mayor Feyen was removed from the housing committee because he had a conflict of interest! (ie he wanted to retain the housing … he had seen among other things opportunities for employment therein for the young people of the town, the same as his aspirations to pursue trapping of pests in lieu of the use of 1080 poison and of investing in the hemp growing industry). The list goes on, not a list shared largely by his colleagues. The housing sold for a song incidentally, to a property developer who then partnered with an established housing provider with promises to maintain the then status quo, however the contract ends in 2029 or thereabouts & just 18 months in they rents have already been raised.

“Effective growth is a partnership between council, central government and private enterprise….away from the unsettling glare of public commentary…” explains one HDC councilor regarding all of the public excluded meetings by which the assets are being sold. (See this article also). Developers are also exempt from paying development contributions to Council. And nowhere else in the country besides Horowhenua does a District Council have a CE and a Deputy Mayor who are both registered property developers.

Listen further to the Mayor’s latest update, expanding further on LG in NZ:

A highlighted issue with this election has been the difficulty involved in voting (see Veronica Harrod’s info). This was the same last election when many folk did not receive their voting papers and the voting info office was frequently either unmanned or closed. Curious isn’t it?

So amidst the LG so called ‘sustainable’ councils up and down our clean green land (not) we have a raft of property developers busy with their public private partnerships selling up all of the public assets for a song. Then there has been the ongoing escalating debts of Councils. That has been an issue in the Horowhenua as well … it’s ‘good debt’ we’re frequently told. Currently, right on election time, the Horowhenua CE is away on holiday and has been for several weeks. This is the CE who was intercepting the emails of his staff for ‘safety reasons’ it was touted. Who paid a secret payment to a local iwi without the Mayor’s knowledge. Mayor Feyen is himself a staunch supporter of true partnership with Tangata Whenua & honouring the principles of the Treaty. Currently the Council’s real commitment appears to be mainly lipservice. 

 

Please have a listen to his videos anyway & peruse the info on our Local Government Watch Horowhenua page. That has not been updated of late unfortunately, there is much more than is documented there. For more recent & all info see HDC in ‘categories. See also Cr Ross Campbell’s page on FB, the Mayor’s page (Michael Feyen) and Veronica Harrod’s also. Veronica is an investigative journalist who has researched quite extensively the activities of this Council.

Setting the record straight – Pakeha kill just as many children as Maori do, despite Maori being reported by mainstream as the “face of abuse”

Pakeha kill just as many children as Maori do, despite Maori being the “face of abuse” Raema Merchant (Lecturer EIT; BSW, MSW)

In 2017, at least 45 babies were taken the day they were born, and more than half of the newborns were removed from young Māori mothers  Whanau Ora NZ, 26/6/19

Just a reminder for those I note on forums & social media who say ‘Māori should stop abusing their children’. We are hearing that the higher proportion of children/babies uplifted by NZ authorities have been Māori babies, and going by the mainstream media hype it would be difficult not to think that Maori were the top offenders.

Not so.

Raema Merchant’s doctorate research in 2011 revealed what mainstream is generally not telling us. They have in my opinion, much to answer for in this skewing of perception, both currently and historically. EWR

RELATED:
Child Abuse Reporting Biased And Sensationalised

Now Pakeha media have highlighted the horror of Oranga Tamariki’s theft of    Māori children – will Government be shamed into action?

 

From stuff.co.nz (2011)

Pakeha kill just as many children as Maori do, despite Maori being the “face of abuse” in the media, according to a researcher.

Social work lecturer Raema Merchant said focusing on Maori parents diverts attention away from the fact Pakeha can harm children too.

“I’m not denying it’s a problem for Maori, but if we’re just focusing on Maori we’re ignoring the Pakeha side,” she said.

“It’s almost as though Pakeha are putting their heads in the sand and saying there is no Pakeha child abuse.”

Her master’s thesis at Massey University found about half of the children killed in New Zealand died at the hands of a Pakeha abuser.

Almost 9000 children were victims of physical abuse between 2000 and 2008, yet only 21 became “household names”‘ in the media, she said.

Just one-third of child deaths were reported in the press, and they were predominantly Maori cases.

Merchant urged the public and media to focus on real problems of child abuse, rather than making Maori the “face of abuse”.

“The real danger I have seen from a social worker point of view is that there are a lot of children being abused but as far as the public are concerned they only seem to know about the ones that are Maori.

“Child abuse is a problem for all people, not just for Maori.”

Merchant is already planning her next thesis, which will look at a bigger issue: whether focusing on Maori child abuse victims leads to skewed views by health professionals and the public.

This could lead to a lack of awareness of abuse occurring in Pakeha families, she said.

Merchant found physical child abuse was largely related to poverty, poor housing, inter-generational abuse, poor parenting and drugs and alcohol abuse.

Her research comes after a recent poll revealed half of New Zealanders believe child abuse has an ethnic connection.

Research New Zealand conducted the survey on how New Zealanders view the causes of child abuse, asking respondents to rank the factors they believed most contributed to the problem.

Just over half the 503 people polled said child abuse was a cultural issue, while parental experience and economic factors shared equal status at about a third each.

Child Matters chief executive Anthea Simcock said abuse was not just about one culture.

“Child abuse is right across the spectrum.”

On average, one child is killed every five weeks in New Zealand, and most victims are less than a year old.

MINISTER SAYS PARENTS NEED HELP

Mums and dads would get preferential treatment for drug and mental health problems under a radical plan to address the nation’s shocking child abuse rate.

The government is braced for criticisms of suggested changes to the current system, where state assistance is allocated on individual need rather than whether dependent children are involved.

Mandatory reporting, a re-think of the whanau-first policy when children are removed from their parents’ care, and sharing information despite privacy concerns will also be on the table when the government releases its Green Paper next week on improving children’s lives.

Social Development Minister Paula Bennett launched the review in April, saying she was incensed by the number of child abuse cases and wanted a national debate about how the problem should be tackled.

It will be launched in Auckland on Wednesday and there will be eight months of public consultation before a formal White Paper is released and the Children’s Action Plan is adopted next year.

Bennett said she was aware many of the topics in the Green Paper were controversial, but tough choices were needed to reduce child abuse.

She said she does not agree with some of the recommendations, but wants them discussed.

Barnardos boss Murray Edridge, former All Blacks hooker Norm Hewitt and former Families Commissioner Sandra Alofivae have been appointed to help lead public debate on the issues.

The more contentious topics include a legal requirement for professionals – including doctors, teachers and nurses – to report suspected child abuse cases, and monitoring at-risk children from birth in a national database.

Former Children’s Commissioner John Angus has said there are already enough reports of child abuse, and dealing with the cases properly was preferable to encouraging more reporting.

He said mandatory reporting would swamp Child Youth and Family.

Child abuse expert Patrick Kelly said many health professionals were not qualified enough to detect it.

Bennett said suggestions of greater information sharing between government agencies also extended to other family members and non-governmental organisations.

“We want to see children protected and in a safe environment, to do that we need to share information a lot more readily, and that does mean occasionally we’ll be sharing information on children who are not in danger.

“So is middle New Zealand ready for us to step into that area a bit?”

Putting parents ahead of other Kiwis in line for government services will also attract criticism.

“The example you could use is that mental health services be prioritised to mothers and fathers with small children.

“Does that mean other people wait longer?

“Should they be able to jump the queue because they have young children?”

It could also apply to drug and alcohol treatment, welfare, education and the rest of the health sector. Services are currently allocated based on need.

Bennett acknowledged that many people, particularly the elderly, would be put out by that.

“I get daily correspondence [from people] who are appalled and disgusted at those beautiful faces that they see, unfortunately week after week, who have been severely damaged or even killed at the hands of people who should be loving them.

“I suppose I’m saying to those people; what are you willing to give up for me to spend more resources on those very families?”

Three questions asked by the Green Paper: What priority should government give to the families and whanau of those caring for children when allocating services that impact on the children they are caring for? What services do you think should be included in this policy? When should adults who care for children be prioritised for services over others?
