The Evidence that Counts for Us

  1. Thank you for this excellent analysis. I haven’t trusted the modern medical system since I was twenty and I’m in my 60’s now.

  2. “the vaccines may not be perfect but we are in a burning house and even if untested they are better than nothing. ”

    How would we know whether we are pouring chemicals that extinguish fires or fire accelerants on the fire? Maybe the fire extinguisher is filled with gasoline. We would have to pay attention to data and have to have a method to discover whether the fire increases spread when sprayed with the fire extinguisher, wouldn’t we?

    In the context of covid vaccines, we would need a method to investigate vaccines as a possible cause of death (or as a cause of other possible adverse events). We would have to proactively plan to investigate and gather data using some method. But this method to gather data to determine risk from covid vaccines is sadly lacking from official guidelines. Instead, it looks like data about risk is being hidden by hospitals using the binary categories of “vaccinated” and “unvaccinated” where some of the vaccinated are counted as “unvaccinated.”

    So, not only are the bureaucrats hiding data, but hospitals are as well. But why would hospitals go along with a strategy to benefit pharma? Hospitals are being given additional stipends per patient by CMS if the patient receives certain drugs, like remdesivir and certain “approved” mabs. About $19,000. (This is in addition to a 20% bonus for covid patients and a bonus for ventilating covid patients.) It’s government-mediated hospital handouts that benefit pharma by incentivizing hospitals to include certain treatments in their protocol for covid patients. The government-medical-industrial complex at work. Racketeering, Influence, and Corrupt Organizations.

  4. Since the covid ‘vaccines’ more and more people are being switched on to this information and now have awareness and growing interest.

  5. The rights of individuals should be encompassed by the notion of the common good which many are working consciously working towards despite the kick back ,not only for their own sakes but actually for the common good by exposing harms lies and corruption and shabby science, at the same time as being stigmatised marginalised and bullied by those to claim they have the answers or even the best possible answers to the unknown and the power to impose them. Most know people have lived because of the vaccines but it tool a long time for the harms to be admitted and the consequent silencing o f those who should be able to speak honestly about the limits of the science .
    Those who do on the media usually qualify their support for a no to vaccines by saying they are vaccinated themselves, It is still hardly possible to give alternative views without bullying.There is no common good in this behaviour .Without people using their individual experience of both harms from vaccines and SSRIs to challenge and inform others the truth would be kept even more secret, fewer people would realise they need to investigate the information which is available from different sources and crucially investigate the system and those individuals who run them . It is unlikely we could trust any one group to publish ‘cases’ we could rely on . Self interests would still skew and corrupt. Individual freedom to do the reporting with and without practioners and to publish their knowledge to honestly inform collective decisions is even more limited than those of clinicians ,prescribers, regulators, pharma companies and so on . I don’t know what level of involvement individuals would have in the publication of their histories more widely in forms the public could access themselves. Historically they have been written up with token consent but not with verification by the individual . Hopefully one day the need for so many activist groups will lead to more respectful cooperation towards developing answers .

  6. Monday I attended the panel discussion “COVID-19: A Second Opinion” sponsored by Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. We heard from Aaron Kheriarty, who was fired from his position at UC Irvine for refusing the shot. He told us that is virtually impossible to obtain a vaccine exemption in the state of California, even for people who were harmed by their first dose.

    “There is no clearer contraindication to a medicine than to have already been harmed by that medicine,” Dr. Kheriarty told us, adding angrily “A four-year-old could have figured that out.”

  7. I often hear that mRNA vaccines are the first ones ever created that do not reliably produce immunity – and do not stop disease transmission. But is that really true?

    A few years ago Boostrix, a compound tetanus-diptheria-pertussis vaccine, was heavily marketed to older Americans by GSK. Serious cases of pertussis or “whooping cough” are extremely rare in adults, but the disease can kill babies and toddlers. So GSK’s sales pitch focused on the need to protect our grandchildren.

    However, Boostrix did not do that, it turned out. It reliably protected you from getting sick yourself, but it didn’t prevent asymptomatic infections (or ones so mild the average person wouldn’t spot them). And those infections could still be passed along to infants. Just like the current crop of Covid-19 vaccines.

    Pertussis vaccines had this weakness ever since the 1980’s, when a high level of adverse effects forced drug companies to reformulate them. Recently I’ve heard that influenza and rotavirus vaccines share the same problem. (It’s not well-known because we fear those diseases a lot less, so we don’t do much testing. Whoever heard of getting “tested for flu-virus” when you didn’t feel sick?)

    The Covid vaccines DO seem to cause a lot more problems. (They’re the first ones I recall that make MOST people sick for a couple days post-vax.) But the *types* of harm – complex nerve ailments like Guillain-Barre, myocarditis, scary clotting disorders – are not new to docs who specialize in vaccines. Maybe just more common.

    Could all these effects be caused by disturbances in the immune system? That would explain why vaccines and viruses can cause similar problems. All vaccines work by triggering your immune system—just like the virus they’re aimed at, but hopefully in a much safer way. The mRNA vaccines, of course, have a brand-new way of doing so. They’re also unusual in being “for all ages”; most vaccines are made primarily for one age group, such as young kids or seniors. And they seem to cause injury in teens and healthy younger adults much more often than older folks.

    This is not a reassuring picture at all! But it makes more sense to me than the idea that these are actually “gene therapy” products (like CRISPR) rather than vaccines.

  8. Pfizer Moves to Intervene in High-Profile Case Dealing With COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Data

    By Zachary Stieber

    Pfizer has asked a federal court to let it intervene in a high-profile case that has seen U.S. drug regulators try to slow-walk disclosure of data on Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

    Pfizer says it supports disclosing the data but wants to ensure that information exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is not “disclosed inappropriately.”

    Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency filed a lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last year after the agency, responding to a FOIA request, claiming it would take 20 years to produce the data on the vaccine.

    The FDA later asked a judge to give it 75 years, but the judge rejected the request and ordered the regulator to produce 55,000 pages a month, which would give it about eight months to fully disclose the records.

    About two weeks after the order, on Jan. 21, lawyers representing Pfizer asked U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, a Trump nominee overseeing the case, to allow the company to intervene.

    Pfizer was not aware of the case until executives read news reports about it last month and now wants to help FDA staffers review the documents in question to ensure proper redactions are made, according to the new filing.

    In light of the FDA’s objections to the sped-up timeframe, Pfizer “seeks leave to intervene in this action for the limited purpose of ensuring that information exempt from disclosure under FOIA is adequately protected as FDA complies with this Court’s order,” the memorandum supporting the motion for leave to intervene stated.

    Government officials told the court that they want Pfizer’s help “due to the unprecedented speed with which the Court has ordered FDA to process the records at issue.”

    “FDA anticipates that coordination with Pfizer to obtain the company’s views as to which portions of the records are subject to Exemption 4, the Trade Secrets Act, 18 U.S.C. § 1905, or other statutory protections will be a necessary component of the agency’s endeavors to meet the extraordinary exigencies of this case,” Department of Justice lawyers said in a response to Pfizer’s motion.

    Plaintiffs, though, asked Pittman to reject Pfizer’s bid.

    “Even though the FDA has more than sufficient resources to expeditiously produce the requested documents, and the agency has repeatedly stated its commitment to protecting Pfizer’s interests, Pfizer could still assist the FDA with expediting release of the requested documents. Pfizer, however, provides no reason why it needs to intervene in this matter to render that purported assistance. Nor can Plaintiff discern why Pfizer needs to intervene in this matter to assist the FDA with expediting release of the requested documents—it can render this assistance without intervening,” Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency said in a brief.

    The judge, the group said, should ask Pfizer to clarify how intervening would help quicken the document production.

    Additionally, Pfizer lawyers told plaintiffs that while the company does not at present plan to challenge the court’s production order, they would not rule out challenging the order at a later time.

    “Pfizer does not presently intend to move the Court to reconsider its January 6, 2022 order, but Pfizer is not in a position at this time to waive its ability to do so if circumstances change such that there is good cause at a later time to do so,” Daniel Tobey, one of Pfizer’s lawyers, said in a statement to the court.

    Plaintiffs are concerned that Pfizer’s involvement will lead to the FDA renewing effort to delay production of the vaccine data.

    Pittman is due to hear arguments for and against Pfizer’s proposed intervention on Jan. 28 in federal court in Fort Worth, Texas.

    Regulators granted emergency use authorization to Pfizer’s vaccine in December 2020, alleging at the time that it was highly effective in preventing infection and severe disease.

    The vaccine has since proven to provide little protection against infection and its effectiveness against severe illness has dropped, and some side effects linked to the vaccine were detected post-authorization, including heart inflammation and severe allergic reactions.

    FDA and other U.S. officials continue to recommend virtually all Americans should get the jab and recently cleared booster doses for individuals 12 and older, while children as young as 5 can get Pfizer’s primary series.

    Panic-button for Pfizer…

  9. NHS workers are lauching a legal action /judicial review to axe the mandate. Steve J who is a critical care consultant says ‘the science isn’t good enough’ and that coercion is against his and many health workers’ values.

  10. Hand in hand with the forcing inadequately tested “vaccines” on the public is the torrent of vituperation poured out on doctors who have the temerity to treat covid patients before they end up in hospital. It’s a measure of the garbage pit into which our culture has descended that early treatment is now considered heresy — at least when it involves COVID-19.

    Here’s my take on the meeting of the expert panel:

    • Paul Marik also gave the date NEJ published the Ebola trial on Remdesivir – December 12 2019 which was also the day Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party got into power in the UK. Now the BBC and UK MSM are obsessed with an never ending Johnson – breaking Covid rules – party pantomime, just proving the puppet nature of all this.

      Remdesivir was pulled from the trial due to harm but is now given to almost all covid patients in USA hospitals

      “A total of 681 patients were enrolled from November 20, 2018, to August 9, 2019, at which time the data and safety monitoring board recommended that patients be assigned only to the MAb114 and REGN-EB3 groups for the remainder of the trial”

      It seems that this is the way forward for trials:

    The Canadian federal government instituted vaccine mandates for cross-border truckers throughout the country. But as many as 32,000, or 20 percent, of the 160,000 Canadian and American cross-border truck drivers may be taken off the roads due to the mandate, the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) estimates. 

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has characterized the protesters as a ‘small fringe minority who are on the way to Ottawa who are holding unacceptable views.’

    Defeat the Mandates – A Day for the History Books!

    Children’s Health Defense Unsubscribe
    2:19 PM (3 hours ago)

    40,000 attendees gathered from all over the country to attend the “Defeat the Mandates” event.

    Dear Susanne,

    The “Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming” event this past Sunday in Washington, DC was truly historic! The day was energizing, peaceful and full of hope and optimism.

    If you couldn’t attend and missed our livestream coverage watch this highlight video to see a preview of this amazing day! For those who want to catch up on the entire event, you can playback the livestream.

    Children’s Health Defense, along with co-organizers and sponsors Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, Global Covid Summit, World Council for Health and JP Sears want to thank everyone who attended on Sunday and the millions who tuned in online.

    Freedom-lovers United!
    “Defeat the Mandates” was a peaceful and beautiful gathering of approximately 40,000 freedom-lovers who descended upon the nation’s capital to reclaim our civil liberties and say NO to mandates. People traveled from all over the country to attend and braved the cold, representing a diverse and peaceful crowd from all walks of life. Attendees represented differing political affiliations, race, ideologies and vaccination status.

    Marching Against Mandates
    The crowds began to gather early Sunday morning around 10:30 a.m. at the Washington Monument where colorful signs and flags could be seen along with people exchanging hugs, smiles and cheerful greetings.

    The march kicked off at 11:30 a.m. as the massive crowd walked towards the Lincoln Memorial. Loud chants and drums could be heard from many people throughout the crowds. Banners, signs and bullhorns punctuated the atmosphere.

    The Operation Freedom Fighters and Bravest for Choice firefighters carried an American flag and stood at the foot of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where they sang “God Bless America” followed by the pledge allegiance.

    The event officially began when performing artists Jimmy Levy and Hi-Rez the Rapper sang their top billboard hits “This is War” and “Welcome to the Revolution”, along with their latest hit “God Over the Government” followed by Jimmy Levy’s solo of a soulful acapella version of “God Bless America.”

    All-Star Lineup of Speakers
    Kevin Jenkins opened as the first guest speaker, reflecting back on Dr. Martin Luther King’s appearance on these same steps in 1963 and reclaiming the American dream.

    Keynote speaker Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. educated the crowd with a powerful and impactful speech that informed the crowd about the scientific data and explained the manipulation around the COVID-19 vaccine trial data. Kennedy also spoke to the corruption of the pharmaceutical industries and government overreach.

    The medical community was represented as a united front as they took to the stage together with speeches from Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Paul Marik, Dr. Ryan Cole, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, Steve Kirsch, Dr. Christina Parks, Dr. Paul Alexander, Dr. Richard Urso and more.

    Religious leaders Rev. Aaron Lewis, and Rabbi Zev Epstein spoke powerful words, as did a large group of firefighters from Bravest for Choice and Operation Freedom of Choice who represent the backbone of our country of those who serve.

    We also heard from Dr. Joel Wallskog, surgeon and Kyle Warner, professional mountain bike racer both tragically injured from the COVID-19 vaccine. They represented a large group of people injured from the COVID-19 injection. A large group of them were present at the rally and Dr. Wallskog and Warner shared their own stories and those of others they’ve met along their journey. Their stories were gut wrenching and tragic to hear and a stark reminder of the reality of what is happening to thousands, and even, millions of people.

    Dr. Wallskog reminded everyone:

    “We hear you, we see you, we are you.”

    He pleaded with the crowd asking that everyone breaks free of the silence and share their stories of injuries and also asked people to consider donating to reAct19, a patient advocate group that supports the treatment and recovery of those injured from COVID-19 injections.

    As of mid-December, 2020 through January 21, 2022 there have been 1,071,856 injuries including 22,607 deaths following COVID vaccination as reported to the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.

    The event was closed with a fiery speech from Del Bigtree who quoted Abraham Lincoln but channeled William Wallace as he demanded accountability and invited everyone to claim what is already theirs by becoming “superspreaders of truth.”

    Bigtree said:

    “The truth always prevails. We are victorious in truth because we are endowed with one great power: the power of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ not given to us by this capital or this government, but by God himself.”

    Worldwide Impact: A Gathering In Europe
    Earlier that day started with “A Call to Europe” press conference in Belgium, Brussels. People from all over Europe assembled in Brussels, home to the EU Parliament, to demonstrate against coercive COVID countermeasures including lockdowns, vaccine passports and vaccine mandates.

    According to news reports, the crowd numbered somewhere between about 50,000 up to 600,000, according to organizers and participants.

    Unfortunately, the event organizers called off their rally after police — using tear gas, water cannons, dogs and the threat of mounted police — ordered them to disperse.

    Read more about the events that unfolded in Brussels in this article and see key highlights of speeches from CHD President and General Counsel Mary Holland and other speakers including Catherine Austin Fitts, president of Solari, Inc., Vera Sherav, holocaust survivor and president of the Alliance for Human Research Protection, AHRP as they regrouped in an alternative location later that day.

    In her speech, Holland said:

    “We are at a crossroads. We can either follow the path to tyranny that’s before us, or we can set ourselves free. The official narrative of the global coup d’état is over.”

    Holland also said, “We have not fully won, here or in the United States, but we can with education, advocacy and litigation.”

    View the replay of the “Call to Europe” event in Brussels.

    We are Growing, We Are Winning!
    After Sunday’s events in both Brussels and Washington, DC, it’s clear we’re no longer fringe groups that can be marginalized. Freedom-lovers all over the world are rising up and coming together to unite in one mission: to defeat the mandates and maintain choice when it comes to vaccines.

    Thank you again for those who joined us on Sunday in both Washington, DC and Brussels, Belgium!

    Be sure to tune in today, Friday, January 28th from 2:30pm ET/1:30pm CT/11:30am PT for our “Defeat the Mandates Special” a one-hour recap of highlights from both events.

    Thank you,

  13. Great article as usual. With Covid, there’s been a very dangerous shift of mindset among the “laity” as well, who now seems to have embraced this sort of unquestionable “medical theology”. At least there’s one person in the medical community who’s speaking up for all the victims of this corrupt system. I’ll keep reading everything you write.

    Greetings from a loyal supporter

  15. Justin Trudeau Ducks the Great Trucker Revolt

    Yes, I know that we have all come to expect that the corporate media will not cover what actually matters, and much of what it does cover it does only with a strong bias toward narratives crafted by ruling elites. Even so, it seems to stretch credulity beyond any plausible extent for the major media to pretend that this isn’t happening. It is and it has massive implications for the present and the future.

    Canadian Trucker Convoy Descends on Ottawa to Protest Vaccine Mandates

    The “Freedom Convoy” began as a response to Covid vaccine requirements for some truckers, but its political aims have since broadened.

    “This thing has really taken on a life of its own,” said Mr. Hill, a former Conservative member of Parliament from Alberta. “The vast majority of the people that have either come on board to participate in the truck convoy or those donating to support it financially have just reached a point of frustration and exasperation with these lockdowns and continuation of restrictions that they want someone to speak up and say ‘enough’ to the federal government.”

  16. At last they’ve got the message – thousands of people people aren’t just hesitant, needing more persuation, coercion , threats or ‘educating’ . We all will possibly benfit now from healthworkers being in such a strong position to stick to their decision not to be vaccinated – if a group on the front line in one of the most precarious positions say ‘no’ why should others not refuse further coercion. Thousands who are not considered as precious have been sacrificed . It is laughable to suggest they have been saved from unemployment because the virus is less virilent – this is saving face when the battle has been lost . The rest in the population who lost work and ended up on meagre ‘benefits’ should be compensated . Many are now being made to take any kind of employment if something in the line they prefer isn;t found within 4 weeks. Nothing can be done about the anger which will be felt by those who acceptd the vaccine to save a job . It Will be intesting to see how much persuation will be put on ‘care workers’ to go back to a situation where they were treated with such disrespect.

    U-turn on mandatory Covid vaccinations for NHS and social care workers
    Sajid Javid set to scrap requirements after warnings that jabs policy could lead to shortage of 80.000 workers

    Sajid Javid, the Health Secretary, will on Monday meet fellow ministers on the Covid-Operations Cabinet committee to rubber stamp the decision on the about-turn.

    Multiple government sources said ministers are expected to end the requirement because the omicron Covid variant, now dominant in the UK, is milder than previous strains.

    The move comes after warnings that almost 80,000 healthcare workers would be forced out of their jobs because they had declined to take two doses of a Covid vaccine.

    The jab requirement for NHS workers was meant to come into force in April – making this Thursday, Feb 3, the last day on which staff could get their first jab in order to be fully vaccinated in time.

    The legal requirement for care home staff to be fully vaccinated came into effect in November. An estimated 40,000 people lost their jobs over the policy. Under the new rules, they are expected to be able to return to work in the sector.

    On Sunday night, care home representatives expressed fury at the handling of the issue, saying the flip-flopping had “devastated our workforce and brought providers to their knees”.

    “Omicron has changed things. When we first introduced the policy, it was delta that was the dominant variant. That was very high risk in terms of how severe it was,” the source said.

    “For omicron, while it is more transmissible, all the studies have shown it is less severe. That has changed the conversation about whether mandatory jabs are still proportionate.”

    Changing the law to force scores of workers to get Covid jabs sparked controversy when The Telegraph revealed the plans last March. A legal expert at the time said that the only comparable UK laws dated from the 1800s, when newborns had to be given smallpox jabs.

    It is unclear when the policy change, once signed off, will be announced. It is expected to be made public before the Feb 3 cut-off for unvaccinated NHS workers to get jabbed.

    NHS guidance to employers said all front line staff who had not been vaccinated should start being called into formal meetings from Feb 4 and warned that they faced dismissal.

    Last week, the Health Secretary said around 77,000 NHS workers remain unvaccinated against the virus. Ministers are expected to point to the fact that tens of thousands of healthcare workers were vaccinated after the original policy was announced.

    Responding to The Telegraph’s revelation that plans for mandatory vaccines in both the NHS and social care sector will be scrapped, Nadra Ahmed OBE, who chairs the National Care Association, said: “This decision epitomises the lack of foresight by ministers in choosing to drive the implementation of this policy without producing impact assessment prior to taking it to the vote.

    “Every parliamentarian who voted for it in social care needs to take responsibility for the loss of staff our sector have suffered because of an ill-thought out policy. Social care has been used as a pilot which has devastated our workforce and brought providers to their knees.”

    Mike Padgham, the chairman of the Independent Care Group for York and North Yorkshire and the owner of Saint Cecilia’s Care Services, which operates four care businesses, said: “It feels like a bit of a slap in the face.

    “I like to think that all those staff that lost their jobs would get them back again, because we need them. It’s what we argued in the beginning – the vaccine was a good thing, but it shouldn’t be mandatory.

    “Common sense seems to have prevailed now, but there’s been a lot of heartache and sleepless nights for people – unnecessarily – in the midst of a pandemic, when we all said at the beginning that this wasn’t the right approach.

    “This just shows that they don’t understand the difference between the NHS and social care sectors and both need to be strong to support each other. ”

    It is understood that the Government is anticipating backlash from carers who lost their jobs as a result of the policy.

    In October, the courts rejected an initial judicial review application that challenged the Government’s vaccine mandate for workers in CQC-regulated care homes. However, it is now anticipated that if those who want their jobs back struggle to get them back, will seek legal action and a renewed application.

  17. Many of us were as afraid, even more afraid, than of catching the virus as it’s height, than of what ‘they’ might do to us next, especially if refusing the vaccinations. All over Europe the fear ramped up has had terrible consequences .The word ‘scum’ was used by an MP maybe about another matter – but with apologies for any offence felt about the word – it is applicable to this lot.

    Government accused of using Covid fear tactics to inflate anxiety levels of British public
    THE government has been accused of using covert strategies to keep people in a perpetual state of heightened fear to make them obey Covid-19 restrictions.
    13:42, Sun, Jan 24,
    Boris Johnson: New variant may have ‘higher degree of mortality’

    A group of 47 psychologists has claimed this amounts to a strategic decision “to inflate the fear levels of the British public”, which it states is “ethically murky” and has left people too afraid to leave their homes for medical appointments. Led by former NHS consultant psychologist Dr Gary Sidley, the experts have written to the British Psychological Society (BPS) claiming the strategy is “morally questionable.”

    It has admitted to communicating public information campaigns 17 per week on average during the peak of the pandemic in order to reach an estimated 95 per cent of adults.

    The criticism follows evidence from minutes of the government advisory group Sage of 22 March 2020 which stated: “The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent,” by “using hard hitting emotional messaging.”

    Dr Sidley said: “It is clear from the methods that are now being used that the government has taken on this advice. Just because the government is explicit in its messaging, however, it does not mean this is not having an impact covertly. It is the way this is communicated that we are concerned about. Psychologists know that while the content of messaging might be factual, the way in which it is delivered will determine its impact and we believe the biggest impact is at a subconscious level which we do not think is ethical or healthy for people. We believe inflating fear levels to achieve compliance may be doing more harm than good.

    “For example stating 500 people died after a positive PCR test will inflate fear level – and therefore compliance – more than if it was put in context of the fact that, on average, 1,600 people die every day.”

    The letter from the psychologists, which the ethics committee of the BPS has acknowledged and will respond by February 18, states the strategy being used is morally questionable and influences an entire nation “below the level of conscious thought and reason” without informed consent. It also alleges this has caused heightened panic, adding that the effect on the nation’s mental health “is likely to be substantial”.

    Dr Sidley and colleagues say in their letter: “The strategic decision to inflate fear levels has had unintended consequences, resulting in many people being too scared to leave their houses or to let anybody in, thereby exacerbating loneliness and isolation which – in turn – have detrimental impacts on physical and mental health.
    “Persistent fear compromises the immune system and works against the objective of keeping us safe and healthy.”

    The Government has vehemently denied using covert techniques (
    It came as Graham Medley, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, yesterday (SAT) disputed a statement by Boris Johnson that the new variant coronavirus may have “a higher degree of mortality”.
    The professor said it is still an “open question” whether the new variant is more deadly.

    A Department of Health and Social Care spokeswoman said: ”We do not use covert techniques to tell people about the pandemic – we are transparent about our decisions and advice.

    “We communicate with them through public information campaigns which reached an estimated 95 per cent of adults on average 17 times per week at their peak.

    “Throughout this crisis we have set out clear instructions to the public about what they need to do in order to delay the spread of the disease.”

    It’s not covert, it’s blatant! The SAGE sub-group SP1-B has published reports detailing how to apply psychology to “nudge” the population and have said ” the level of fear is not high enough”. It details how coersion should be used and uses Neuralistic Linguistic Programming (NLP) as a tool to manipulate us.
    In common terms, it’s called “Gaslighting”, If you do it within an abusive relationship it is a criminal act so how can it be legal to do to the whole population?

  19. The Twilight of Covid Mandates in Europe

    The U.K. ditches a diktat for health staff as other leaders rethink how to live with the virus.

    The Biden Administration isn’t the only government rethinking Covid vaccine mandates.

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration quietly dropped its mandate after a rebuke from the Supreme Court, and some leaders in Europe are also finally getting serious about learning to live with the virus.

    United Kingdom Health Secretary Sajid Javid on Monday scrapped a requirement for employees of the National Health Service (NHS) to be vaccinated by April. Doctors, nurses and other staff would have had to receive their first shots this week to be fully vaccinated in time and it became clear tens of thousands were holding out, amounting to more than 5% of the NHS work force. This amid chronic staff shortages.

    A separate mandate for nursing-home staff took effect in November and the havoc it wreaked no doubt contributed to Mr. Javid’s decision to avoid the same chaos in the NHS.

    Estimates vary, but thousands of staff seem to have left their jobs owing to the mandate as a staffing shortage sets into that industry. A major concern is that those workers will have found other jobs in Britain’s tight labor market and might never return to their old posts.

    Denmark’s government Tuesday lifted all remaining Covid-related restrictions, and officials suggested they’ll now focus more on hospitalizations from Covid rather than total cases. Norway and Ireland also have lifted many restrictions.

    This enlightenment isn’t universal, but other governments seem to be paying a political price for tougher pandemic measures. Italy recently imposed a vaccine mandate for people over age 50, but the move stirred vigorous opposition within Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s fragile coalition government. Austria has imposed the Continent’s most stringent mandate, applying to all adults, while also lifting lockdown rules that had applied to the unvaccinated. Street protests are becoming a regular occurrence.

    Vaccines can be life-saving and millions of people have concluded it makes good sense to receive the shots. But governments in Europe increasingly must decide if Covid remains a big enough danger to warrant its dominating role in policy debates.

    Britain’s government determined that a staffing shortage in hospitals would be a bigger emergency than Covid. Other governments might come to ask whether the social division stoked by vaccine mandates is worth the marginal health benefit. That kind of tradeoff is what “learning to live with Covid” will mean for politics.
