It’s no use going back to yesterday: a news digest from the new normal
‘I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning,’ said Alice a little timidly: ‘but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.’ – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll.
Wowsers, there are a lot of updates this week – I could have gone on and on.
Canada, oh Canada
A Canadian court has ruled that it’s not unconstitutional to refuse a life-saving organ transplant to a woman who refused to get the covid-19 injection.
NZ Doctors Speaking Out with Science (NZDSOS) is continuing to draw attention to the new trend of sudden deaths in people of all ages, and the country’s rising all-cause mortality. The trend is now seen in all heavily vaccinated countries. Statistics taken from StatzNZ and visualised at the Human Mortality Database, show that New Zealand’s excess mortality trend has been consistently above the average throughout 2022.
New bi-valent covid mRNA boosters have been approved for use in a number of countries after being tested on only eight mice. There won’t be any liability for the vaccinators, manufacturers or regulators, who approved it under emergency authorisation. Canada, the European Union and Switzerland approved them all on the same day, but they are also approved in the US and UK. The booster will have been given to millions of people by the time Moderna’s trial on 512 people is completed.
In California, a bill that would have allowed children ages 15 and older to be vaccinated without parental consent was defeated by community activists. The bill originally targeted children as young as 12. In New Zealand, the Government already gave kids 12 and up the right to get vaccinated without parental consent, using the Gillick competency test, but did so quietly and with little media attention. Such laws increasingly put parental rights at risk.
The Ministry of Education has published guidance for educators about relationships and sexuality education, which targets children as young as year 1.
“Relationships and sexuality education cannot be left to chance in schools. When this education begins from early childhood and builds consistently, year after year, it prepares young people for navigating a range of relationships throughout their childhood, teen years, and adult life,” it states.
The document codifies ‘woke’ values and ensures school aged children will be steeped in gender ideology from day one. This includes requiring the formal use of preferred pronouns and removing biological sex from sports divisions. Whatever happened to just letting kids be kids? Is this social engineering without parental consent?
Protesting could get you in trouble at work
A man who took part at a recent Freedom and Rights coalition protest in Wellington is now under review from his employer, Whānau Ora Community Clinic. The man presided as a ‘judge’ in a mock trial of the Government over its jab mandates. Despite the right to protest in New Zealand, it appears exercising basic civil liberties is now beginning to result in concerning consequences.
Political interference in journalism
The saga of Australian journalist Avi Yemini has continued to unfold. Leaked Interpol documents show there is now no doubt the decision to bar him from New Zealand was a political one.
He was intending to report on the Freedom and Right’s Coalition protest last week and growing anti-government sentiment. Interpol Wellington approached Australian counterparts to dig for dirt on Yemini, ostensibly to legitimise a decision to bar him from entering the country.
A round of finger pointing ensued, with the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and NZ Police both blaming Immigration, which blames Interpol, which accuses the Police. Yemini is fighting the decision in court and has plans to return and pursue his reporting in future.
Assange appeals extradition
Imprisoned journalist and publisher Julian Assange has submitted Perfected Grounds of Appeal, challenging UK Home Secretary Priti Patel’s decision to extradite him to the US. The appeal is based on the fact that the request violates Article 4 of the US-UK Extradition Treaty.
Consensus on climate emergency challenged
More than 1000 scientists have signed a declaration asserting that there is no climate emergency, and that natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming. The list is headed up by Norwegian Nobel laureate professor Ivar Giaever.
“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures,” the declaration states.
It questions the ‘rubbish in, rubbish out’ nature of climate modelling as a basis for climate policy.
Could the right to travel come under threat?
Flying freely may soon be a thing of the past. A clear narrative is emerging that questions whether people should travel internationally due to climate change. One Otago University academic is questioning whether Kiwis should be taking trans-Tasman trips.
UK conservative pundit Katie Hopkins made the salient observation that airlines and airports are now working to reduce flight numbers and predicts that in the next five-to-10-years, people will have lost the right and ability to freely travel, with climate change being used as the excuse.
U-turn on mRNA for pregnant and lactating women, after millions have taken it
The UK government has changed its recommendations for mRNA injections for pregnant and breastfeeding women, after millions of them were injected.
Section 4 of the recently updated Public Assessment Report states that no studies for toxicokinetic, genotoxicity, carcinogenicity, prenatal and postnatal development, general toxicity studies, or studies in which offspring are further evaluated have been done. Why?
Because the World Health Organisation said this was fine in 2005.
“The absence of reproductive toxicity data is a reflection of the speed of development to first identify and select covid-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 for clinical testing and its rapid development to meet the ongoing urgent health need … it is considered that sufficient reassurance of safe use of the vaccine in pregnant women cannot be provided at the present time … Women who are breastfeeding should also not be vaccinated. These judgements reflect the absence of data at the present time and do not reflect a specific finding of concern.”
New Zealand’s Ministry of Health continues to recommend the covid injection for pregnant women.
New Zealand’s covid-19 website still states that the Pfizer injection can be taken at any stage during pregnancy.
“The vaccine protects you as you are far less likely to fall seriously ill, and can also protect your baby. Evidence shows that babies can get antibodies through the placenta.”
US journalist and author Naomi Wolf has reported widely on the Pfizer data dump that the FDA wanted to keep under wraps for 75 years. In this gut wrenching report on her Substack in May, Wolf wrote:
“The Volunteers have drilled deep into the Pfizer documents’ reports about pregnancy and found that the assurance that the vaccine is ‘safe and effective’ for pregnant women, was based on a study of 44 French rats, followed for 42 days (the scientists who ran the study are shareholders or employees of BioNTech). [https://dailyclout.io/covid-19-vaccines-pregnancy-risky-business/]
“The Volunteers found that while pregnant women were excluded from the internal studies, and thus from the EUA on which basis all pregnant women were assured the vaccine was ‘safe and effective’, nonetheless about 270 women got pregnant during the study. More than 230 of them were lost somehow to history. But of the 36 pregnant women whose outcomes were followed – 28 lost their babies.
“The Volunteers found that a baby died after nursing from a vaccinated lactating mother, and was found to have had an inflamed liver. Many babies nursing from vaccinated mothers showed agitation, gastrointestinal distress, and failure to thrive (to grow), and were inconsolable.”
It’s a harrowing read. But read it we must. Because Pfizer and the regulators knew this stuff before they recommended it to the entire world.
Government throws vaccinator under the bus for death of Rory Nairn
The Ministry of Health is placing the blame for the death of a 26-year-old man from the vaccine, on the vaccinator. Rory Nairn was affected by myocarditis after his first jab. Guidance from the MOH to medical professionals about the safety signal came out in August, and an urgent update was sent directly from former Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield in December.
“We need to ensure that consumers are well informed of this rare side effect and know when to seek help. We also want to ensure that the health system is poised to diagnose and clinically manage consumers with this condition appropriately,” it said.
It outlined the most common symptomatology:
* Chest heaviness, discomfort, tightness or pain
* Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath
* Feeling dizzy, light-headed or faint
* Racing or fluttering heart, or a feeling of ‘skipped beats
There was no media attention.
In fact, the messaging about the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis was kept very low key from the outset. In late June last year, journalists were alerted to two studies showing inflammation of the heart muscle could develop within days of mRNA injections. It went unreported.
The Government has consistently told the public the jab is ‘safe and effective’, and has not at any point given the pubic the opportunity for true informed consent. Instead, it gagged doctors, preventing them from sharing the real risks of the jab with patients. Many of them have lost their license for speaking up.
The MOH continues to advise that the benefits of the jab outweigh the risk, and maintains these are rare side effects. I personally know three people with post jab myocarditis. What is the statistical probability of that?
Labour infiltrates local government with ‘independent’ candidates, while LGNZ scares voters with ‘extremist’ propaganda
Election meddling is now overtly taking place, as LGNZ, the body that represents the interests of local government, warns voters about who not to vote for.
A campaign has been launched to identify people standing for local body elections who might be ‘conspiracy theorists’ and ‘extremists’. It identified 170 ‘candidates of concern’ and said many were trying to hide their extreme views, whatever that means.
And yet, Labour is informally providing campaign support to independent candidates all around the country, as long as they vote with the party line. This means these ‘independent’ candidates are not able to represent the will of their constituents if it deviates from Labour party policy – scandalous.
LGNZ also signed an agreement with Labour to promote Three Waters, worth $2.2 million. This change in direction away from representing local councils to becoming an agent for Labour, has raised alarm bells. Read an excellent expose here.
And as for those ‘extremists’, listen to Alia Bland from Voice for Freedom speak to Rodney Hide on The Platform recently. They discuss how the group’s encouragement for freedom minded individuals to run in council elections was misreported in the legacy media.
They were accused of trying to hide their association to candidates and make the country ‘ungovernable’. But nobody is being asked to run on a VFF ticket or run on VFF ‘policies’. Bland gives a good explanation of what was meant by the term ‘ungovernable’ in the interview.
“They are bandying that around like it’s some sort of awful thing … but it’s basically about looking at how dependent we’ve all become and seeking to change that. It’s about looking at the overreach of the Government and working on ways that we can become more resilient, so that we are not vulnerable to the next mandate or government law that seeks to remove our freedom in one way or another.”
The media coverage on this issue is particularly Orwellian, because it is working overtime to scare people about grassroots candidates who care about basic rights and freedoms (extremists), while the Labour party is actually infiltrating local government with bought-off candidates – a true subversion of democracy.
Stay curious …
