Think Tanks for Authoritarian Influence

For a year or more I simply thought that explaining public health evidence would be enough to show people the errors being made through this nightmare. But it has become apparent that public health has nothing to do with what is happening. For example, when a data analyst showed this graph on Twitter yesterday he merely elicited accusations of “anti-vaxxer”. This shuts down all possibility of discussing the epidemiological phenomenon observed, rendering public health in effect, cancelled.

So what exactly led to the downfall of evidence based disease surveillance, outbreak control and pandemic response? It seems somewhat explained by this (16 page) document by Nadège Rolland, a political and security analyst. She is the author of the book China’s Eurasian Century? Political and Strategic Implications of the Belt and Road Initiative (2017) and of several reports dedicated to Chinese elite thinking on BRI security and China’s vision of a new world order.

As globalization deepens integration between democracies and autocracies, the compromising effects of sharp power—which impairs free expression, neutralizes independent institutions, and distorts the political environment—have grown apparent across crucial sectors of open societies. The Sharp Power and Democratic Resilience series is an effort to systematically analyze the ways in which leading authoritarian regimes seek to manipulate the political landscape and censor independent expression within democratic settings, and to highlight potential civil society responses.

Connecting the dots is not so difficult when you see the links between various players. For example previous Moderna CEO:

Alain Mérieux received the Reform Friendship Award at a conference celebrating the 40th anniversary of China’s Reform and Opening Up on December 18, 2018. The event took place at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, in the presence of President Xi Jinping.

Covid-19 passports are illogical

Maryanne Demasi is an investigative journalist with a PhD in Rheumatology. I have stolen this from her blog, dated yesterday.

COVID-19 vaccine passports are being rolled out across the world in various countries, states and regions. It’s a simple concept – no jab, no entry.

The promise? Freedom of movement and a way of reopening the economy. But only for the fully vaccinated. 

The unvaccinated are banned from pubs, restaurants, gyms, hair salons, cinemas, concerts and international flights – the list goes on. 

The Prime Minister of Australia says, “If you’re not vaccinated, you represent a greater public health risk to yourself, to your family, and to your community.“

Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews says, “There’s going to be a vaccinated economy and you get to participate if you are vaccinated,” recently confirming the rules would be in place until at least 2023.

Advocates say it preserves public safety. Those who comply should be rewarded with freedoms and those who don’t, should have their privileges revoked. They deny it’s coercion, they say people can ‘choose’ to participate, and that it’s akin to showing your passport at customs.

Others say it’s a form of institutionalised segregation. It inhibits free choice (my body, my choice) and unfairly subjects law-abiding citizens to punitive measures. Many fear it signals a demoralising slide into discrimination, medical apartheid, fascism, or totalitarianism.

There is punishment for non-compliance – sometimes severe. In France for example, unvaccinated people entering non-essential venues (cafes, cinemas, restaurants) without a passport, will face six months in prison or $16,000 fine. 

Hence, the debate over vaccine passports rages on and protests continue in the streets with a heavily armed police presence.

There has been a lot written about vaccine passports since they were first proposed, including a rapid response in the BMJ that I co-authored with my colleague Prof Peter Gøtzsche, earlier this year. 

Since then, more data has poured in from around the world and it reveals that the push for vaccine passports is underpinned by baseless scientific claims and persistent disinformation. 

Jabs don’t stop transmission

We were promised vaccines with 90% efficacy, but when the highly transmissible delta variant became prevalent, it changed the game.

While maintaining the ability to lower the risk of hospitalisations and deaths, the vaccines have failed in the most important outcome required for an effective passport system – i.e. they cannot prevent people from contracting the virus, nor can they prevent transmission. 

When fully vaccinated people first began experiencing ‘breakthrough infections,’ public health authorities were quick to dismiss them as ‘rare’ cases. But now it’s a different story.

The data coming out of the UK, Israel and Singapore show these are some of the most highly vaccinated countries, and yet, they are experiencing some of the highest rates of breakthrough infections in the world.

Some of the most concerning data has come out of Israel’s Ministry of Health. As delta ripped through the population mid-year, Pfizer’s vaccine was reported to be only 39% effective at preventing infections and 41% effective at preventing symptomatic disease, down from earlier estimates of 64% just two weeks prior.

Despite the concerning evidence rendering vaccine passports highly questionable, some Governments have forged ahead with legislation.

Not even the W.H.O endorses digital vaccine passports. “WHO does not support the requirement of proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to travel”, it stated recently.

In September, Denmark became the first European country to abolish vaccine passports. The UK’s Prime Minister also flirted with the idea of scrapping vaccine passports, but now as COVID-19 cases are rising among fully vaccinated people, the government is wavering again.

System is fatally flawed

As lockdown restrictions ease in two of Australia’s most populous cities (Melbourne and Sydney), the state Premiers have now rolled out the digital passport scheme.

But the rules that underpin the function of these digital passports are fatally flawed.

For example, fully vaccinated people and those with a medical exemption (see examples) are allowed entry into non-essential venues (pubs, restaurants, gyms etc), whereas unvaccinated people are banned.

It is scientifically baseless to suggest that unvaccinated people with a medical exemption pose less risk to others than unvaccinated people without a medical exemption.

Meanwhile, both vaccinated and unvaccinated people are allowed to grocery shop at the same supermarket or catch public transport, with no segregation.

Also, anyone travelling to and from Australia must show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within 48 -72 hours of boarding the flight, even if they are double vaccinated, to avoid the potential spread to other passengers – itself an admission that fully vaccinated people can still transmit to others.

Advocates push back

Advocates have pushed back saying that the vaccines may not “stop” transmission but at least they “reduce” it. They argue that if less people acquire the infection, then less people can pass it on. On the surface, it makes sense – the only problem is that real world data suggests the opposite.

The most recent report from the UK government website clearly shows that, despite reduced hospitalisations and deaths, vaccinated people over the age over 30 years are twice as likely to become infected with COVID-19 than unvaccinated people (see graph) 

Another complication that may be overlooked by advocates is that vaccine-induced immunity against delta wanes quickly. 

A recent study found that three months after being fully vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, people showed “no evidence of difference in transmission compared to that seen in unvaccinated individuals.” 

This has motivated authorities to push for booster shots. Brits over 50 and other vulnerable groups are already being offered a third dose of the vaccine to ride out the pandemic over the winter months and Israel is already preparing to offer a fourth dose of the vaccine. 

Victorians were told by Premier Dan Andrews that people should expect “booster vaccine passports” by 2022 and residents of Sydney were told by the state’s Chief Health Officer that they would have to get used to booster shots indefinitely

Silent spreaders?

So, why are vaccinated people twice as likely to become infected with COVID-19 than unvaccinated people, according to UK data? 

Many explanations are plausible, but one circulating theory is that the vaccines can reduce the severity of disease and dampen symptoms, leading to more asymptomatic infections. Because vaccinated people feel protected by the vaccine, they may also take fewer preventative measures.

Therefore, if vaccine passports permit vaccinated people (possibly unaware they are infectious) to mingle, to travel, visit nursing homes, restaurants, gyms etc, they might unknowingly become ‘silent spreaders.’

Ron Law, a risk and policy advisor wrote a rapid response in the BMJ describing this as “killing the canary in the coal mine.”

He wrote, “Clinical trials have shown that Covid-19 vaccines suppress symptoms including cough. If the vaccines stop symptoms, but don’t stop transmission then we’ve lost our warning. No staying at home ‘just in case.’ No testing to find out our COVID-19 status. No self-isolation to protect others…Vaccinated but infected people just going about their daily activities infecting others.”

Long lasting natural immunity 

Vaccine passports do not consider “long-lasting” immunity from natural infections. It is estimated that almost 220 million people have contracted COVID-19 and recovered, meaning that they have developed a robust ‘natural immunity’.

Some countries allow people who have been previously infected with COVID-19 to receive a ‘temporary’ passport – up to 6 months in Israel, Australia and the UK – after which the person’s immunity status is assumed to have expired or waned like vaccine-induced immunity.

A recent pre-print study however, found that natural immunity conferred longer lasting and stronger protection against delta infection, compared to people with a two-dose Pfizer vaccine-induced immunity. 

Also, a study published in The Lancet Microbe suggested that natural immunity could last for a median duration of 16 months.

Some have even argued that there is another aspect of the immune system called “cell-mediated immunity” which is known to be more durable. After the 2003 SARS outbreak for example, researchers detected T-cells primed in response to the SARS virus for up to 17 years.

Plan may have backfired

Initially, the goal of vaccine passports was to pave the way for economic recovery and restore people’s freedoms while maintaining a safe community. 

However, they have only worked to force vaccine compliance and create a two-tiered system which is likely to have a significant, negative impact on vaccine confidence. As authors of a recent article published in the journal Vaccines wrote: 

“Control measures, such as domestic vaccine passports, may have detrimental effects on people’s autonomy, motivation, and willingness to get vaccinated” wrote the authors. 

“Policies should strive to achieve a highly vaccinated population by supporting individuals’ autonomous motivation to get vaccinated and using messages of autonomy and relatedness, rather than applying pressure and external controls.”

Politicians fight for their people

Last week, in an unprecedented move, several Members of European Parliament (MEPs) spoke publicly about their strong objections to the disproportionate enforcement of Europe’s Digital Covid Certificate.

“Today we all stand for the defence of human rights in Europe. We must do it together, and we must do it now. We cannot wait any longer because a lot of people are suffering, losing their jobs, a lot of families are losing their right to have money to live,” said Italian MEP Francesca Donato.

The group of MEPs from a spectrum of political parties and from countries such as Germany, Croatia, Italy and Romania broke ranks to condemn the ongoing violation of human rights.

German Minister Christine Anderson MEP seemed incredulous that democratic governments would pursue this path.

“What I am worried about is the kinds of Governments that exploit this crisis in order to curb civic freedoms and to grant certain privileges or not,” said Anderson, questioning why anyone would support the idea of compulsory mandates and passports.

One reason she proposed is that many are privileged to have never lived under a communist regime (especially true of Australians) and therefore, democracy and rule of law is taken for granted. 

“We have to do more to fight for this right for freedom and that is why these fundamental principles, which are anchored in the basic law of the constitution in Germany, should not be viewed as privileges that are given by the Government and then can be withdrawn,” said Anderson.

Croatian MEP Ivan Sinčić described the digital passport “as a license to spread and infect” that gives “a false sense of security” since it is not protecting the person from getting or spreading the virus. 

Sinčić concluded by saying that vaccine passports are completely “illogical”, “not scientific” and “must be abandoned.” 

In closing the press conference, Romanian MEP Cristian Terheş gave an impassioned speech about why we needed to curtail the ongoing violation of individual rights. 

As someone who came from a former communist country with an oppressed people Terheş said, “we have not had a protest for liberty since the fall of communism…. now, we see people everywhere in Europe, Italy, France, Spain – once again, fighting for liberty. Not for higher wages, just the simple need for freedom and liberty.”

Unintended Consequences

Children’s Health Defense produce CHD.TV, which seems to be a series of podcast-style interviews. Paediatrician Dr Paul Thomas hosts “Against the Wind”, the latest episode of which was published on 21 October 2021. The first interview in this episode is with Dr Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It takes some concentration but her half hour interview describes the way in which mRNA vaccines work, and the serious concerns she has about them.

Robert F Kennedy Junior, of the infamous Democrat family, has a legal background and has undertaken in-depth research into the geo-political issues playing out globally. He interviews a range of people including experts and members of the general public with a story to share, at his podcast The Defender. His fifteen minute chat with Dr Christina Parks who is a cellular and molecular biologist, dated 29 September, is a particularly good discussion about vaccine mandates and vaccine hesitancy.

Meanwhile, in the UK the population are being prepped for further winter lockdowns. This is not public health, so what is it?

This two minute clip of Alex Berenson’s recent interview with Joe Rogan shows that 70% of UK Covid deaths are occurring in those who are fully vaccinated. Could this be connected with the concerns that multiple experts have been speaking out about, against a tide of aggressive censorship, for over a year, about Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE)?

Protests arrived in Darwin this week after the Chief Minister for the Northern Territory announced $5,000 fines for anyone found to be declining this experimental “vaccine”. Why would state leaders be pushing this so aggressively? Have they sold a promise to the pharmaceutical industry in exchange for our public assets? It is hard to imagine what else would be driving such vicious attacks against innocent civilians?

Things to Reject: Division, Hate, Obedience and “Being Nice”

Throughout history populations have been pitted against each other by leaders with nefarious plans. It usually ends in profound suffering. History books are filled with it. The Khmer Rouge promoted “narking” amongst their impoverished, starving citizens, for crimes as miniscule as scavenging for food. The East German Stasi planted “narks” amongst the people to sift out those not complying with “The Party”. The Nazis relied on collaborators to identify those in hiding and their accomplices.

Today people choosing Covid vaccination are being encouraged to blame those choosing to decline the vaccination, for ongoing loss of freedoms. “Anti Vaxxer” is the newest buzzword. Which is ironic when people such as vaccinologists, immunologists, pathologists, microbiologists, infectious disease epidemiologists and others with relevant specialist knowledge are maligned with such nonsense instead of being offered a platform to speak, in order that all sides of the debate can be heard. The only side being heard comes from the pharmaceutical industry. That alone should be a warning sign given the many billions of dollars involved.

Avital Livny created the Testimonies Project in Israel, to give a voice to those who have been vaccine injured this year. It was removed from YouTube. The pain and heartbreak is horrific and I feel sure that noone I know would deliberately support that this happens to a single fellow human, particularly not under force. Avital gave testimony to the Corona Ausschuss team in the past couple of days. “You have to understand that the environment in Israel is … there is great incitement against people who are unvaccinated“. If nothing else this shows the impact of a highly successful propaganda campaign. Israel would surely have been the one nation to have known better than this?

Mandates are rolling out globally to ensure exclusion of “the unvaccinated” from those freedoms that “the vaccinated” are being promised. People continue to believe that life will revert to normal, if only everyone agrees to vaccination. Leaders are uniformly making promises to those who comply with vaccination. People continue to comply. To believe normality will return. To follow this incredibly odd “new normal” of freedoms attached to compliance with an experimental medical intervention, without question.

Liz Gunn is a New Zealand television personality who yesterday spoke out after the Prime Minister stated that new world order will involve excluding “the unvaccinated” from society. Those complying for now perhaps believe that dose 2 is all that is needed. They are not looking to Israel, were a fourth shot is now required; or to the evidence being openly shared by World Economic Forum and their globalist partners, showing that vaccine compliance is just the beginning. Gunn’s twelve minute video shows someone of humane principal who understands history and recognises the threat we are all under. Our enemy is certainly not “the unvaccinated”. We have to know this, and to reject this new and evil illusion being foisted upon the world.

Robert F Kennedy Junior, a stalwart of freedom and democracy, has been advocating for pharmacovigilance for many years, via Childrens Health Defense. He knows too well, the phenomenon of using the phrase “anti vax” to shut down analysis and debate. He has the tireless courage and dignity of his predecessors, boxing-on despite aggressive censorship and misrepresentation. I recently discovered his podcast The Defender where he interviews a range of interesting people, for example sixteen minutes with Dr Brad Meyer who lost his job this year for (successfully) treating patients with established, re-purposed antiviral medicines instead of following standing orders to ventilate.

The protests in Italy against their “Green Pass” (why is it called that?) have been relentless for weeks now, with many millions across all towns and cities standing together to protect democracy against something their national history knows too well.

Dr Renee Hoenderkamp, GP with the UK National Health Service, spoke to talkRADIO recently, describing the rollout of vaccine passports as having no scientific justification, and their only purpose being to establish a digital identification system. In the same interview she statedwe are being treated like children. We are being groomed. I actually feel like I’m being groomed by an abusive partner … these things dangled all the time, then taken away. We are punished for being naughty …“.

Dan Wootton talked about the latest plans for another winter lockdown in the UK at this three minute clip with GB News. “…the threats on our freedoms and civil liberties are even more severe than first thought. The civil service, the doomsday scientists and the hysterical media are in lockstep over the need to lockdown again … “. Why?

Using totalitarianism as a public health intervention whilst denying established evidence based practice causes chaos and impoverishment, increasing illness and suffering. When this happens it will not in fact, be the fault of “the disobedient”, but of those promoting the idea that the decisions they are making and foisting upon society are “the disobedient’s” fault. A simple plan. One which, repeatedly throughout history, has advanced minority power whilst causing catastrophic misery.

The Time To Stand Is Now

Probably the most informative documentary available to describe exactly what is happening to our world today is The Corbett Report: Bill Gates Full Documentary.

Whilst qualified experts with specialised knowledge on issues from clinical medicine to epidemiology continue to be censored aggressively, Gates holds forte with mainstream media including news channels, comedian shows and printed media. His pseudoscientific ideas about public health are pushed onto society, painted as being supported by evidence when they simply are not.

Does that not seem odd?

The HighWire with Del Bigtree offers intelligent analysis of science and politics. This week he covered a number of topics, and in particular the global rollout of “Common Pass”, a digital infrastructure that will allow those in power to enforce mass compliance to their various requirements. Where it comes from, what it’s connected to and how they plan for it to work are discussed by a co-founder of Protection of the Educational Rights of Kids (PERK), Amy Bohn. If we don’t take notice of this and start opposing the stages already in place, it will be enforced before we even realise it’s happening. The interview begins around 1h11m into Episode 238.

Investigative journalist Whitney Webb also discussed the evidence she has uncovered relating to the same issues of population control, at The Last American Vagabond. Cyber crime as the World Economic Forum’s next global catastrophe, leading to the requirement of passports to regulate access to the internet including banking rights. Using cash can help us oppose these plans by limiting the success of the digital currency takeover.

The Commons Project began in 2019 as a World Economic Forum and Rockefeller Foundation initiative bringing us the Common Pass. It’s hard to imagine that anyone is going to want these severe restrictions to life, economic activity and human rights. The more of us who understand the plans in place, the less likely they can succeed.

Our Constitution and freedom is really the thorn in the side of these globalists, the World Economic Forum, the Great Reset. We’re getting in the way of this plan which was supposed to roll out a whole hell of a lot smoother, I imagine? ~ Del Bigtree
