we sit inside...

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

Sit back and enjoy the show as debating and arguing will go no where at this stage.
If there are no plans to convert the latest hit geographical area (and of course, with the proper "numbers" reported) to the playground (testing site) of an experimental vaccine.
Maybe more awareness will augment the already anti-government tendencies and chip away at the vaccine trusting nature of the population, or perhaps not. Of course, a vaccine could also backfire like the accidentally released research virus. There are mitigation measures when taking vaccines and awareness may be more powerful than most realize.

Salud.

As an unhealthy world population is in the financial interest of a number of health care related industries, and healthy world population is also in the financial interest of a great number of other industries, can we compare pressure from these two mutually contradicting forces? Which is stronger, at the present times, from purely financial point of view? (BTW, should we count small funeral firms?).

The stronger is a given and needs not be asked and they are trying to co-opt the supplement/natural remedy and related industries by buyouts and governmental regulations.

(see articles by Whitney Webb, a brilliant millenial reporter and US expat in Chile, on this aspect)
I do appreciate what she and the team are doing. People of this sort are becoming rare. Especially at the present time, when folks go to jail easily for simply opening their mouth (at least, in certain countries).

Cracks Widen in the Fake Consensus
Posted on March 26, 2021

The cracks in the coronavirus ‘consensus’ are widening. On Saturday, March 20, as part of a coordinated Worldwide Rally for Freedom, thousands of people across Europe, North America, Australia and Israel took to the streets to protest masks and lockdowns—probably hundreds of thousands, but we’ll never know for certain because the mainstream media coverage has been sporadic, absent or outright dishonest.[1]

The Saturday marches were only the latest in a series that have been occurring since last year, including European protests in August 2020 with nearly 20,000 protestors in Berlin alone. An Australian news service reporting on these events noted “tens of thousands of protestors around the world.” [2] The formerly liberal Guardian, reporting on protest marches last November, was careful to bias its story with the sub-headline, “Libertarians and conspiracy theorists join business owners in opposing new restrictions…”[3] Neither the BBC nor The Guardian reported on the March 20 protests in London. As the Off-Guardian accurately observed, “The mainstream coverage of the protests veers from non-existent to predictable partisan dishonesty and fearmongering.”[4] Here in British Columbia, Global News admitted in October that the protest movement has been growing “in both numbers and intensity since the summer,” but chose to profile protestors as conspiracy theorists without uttering the term.[5]

Meanwhile, more and more nurses and doctors are stepping out of the shadows and risking their careers to expose the Covid ‘pandemic’ as a fraud, including Canadian Frontline Nurses and America’s Frontline Doctors. Also this week, a document is being circulated by the activist group Action4Canada for medical professionals to sign, warning medical authorities that first responders, law enforcement, and frontline workers will no longer be party to violating their ethics, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and international law as enshrined in the Nuremberg Code and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.[6] In Switzerland, possibly one of the last bastions of genuine democracy, a referendum is planned for citizens to vote on whether or not to continue lockdowns.[7] Last November, a Portuguese court ruled PCR tests “unreliable” and thus unlawful as a basis for medical lockdowns, another fact that was conveniently ignored by the mainstream media.[8] As the inventor of the test Kary Mullis is on record stating, the PCR test was never designed for use as a diagnostic tool; its use results in up to 97% false positives. In one interview prior to his death in 2019 Mullis says the same misuse of his test was applied to testing for AIDS, resulting in similarly inaccurate ‘pandemic’ numbers.[9]

And in January this year, a court in the German province of Thuringia ruled that lockdowns breached law, stating that, “the government lacked sufficient legal grounds to impose the restrictions since there was no ‘epidemic situation of national importance’ at that time and the health system was at no risk of collapsing…”[10] This landmark legal decision declared that “regional containment policies—including lockdowns, social distancing, prohibitions on gatherings by family or friends are unconstitutional.”[11] Such landmark decisions often serve as the thin edge of the wedge, providing precedent for similar legal cases around the world. German lawyer Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, who assembled a team of lawyers for the Coronavirus Investigative Committee, [12] agreed: “We consider this judgment to be extraordinary and of fundamental importance. It is transferable to all violations of Covid19 measures.” Fuellmich previously won consumer advocacy cases against Volkswagen for its ‘Dieselgate’ scandal and corruption in Deutsche Bank.

Adding to the cognitive dissonance created by the authoritarian and media response to this virus, in a 2015 case brought to court by the Ontario Nurses Association to challenge mandatory vaccinations, BC’s current chief medical officer Dr. Bonnie Henry testified against such mandates.[13] Her testimony as an expert witness was key in overturning both vaccination and masking mandates and revealed that those who are asymptomatic do not spread viruses. Then during 2020 she again went on record as stating that masks are ineffective in preventing viral transmission, a conclusion that is supported by the majority of peer-reviewed studies. Even the notoriously compromised American chief medical officer, Dr. Anthony Fauci, admitted as much in an interview with 60 Minutes in May 2020. Good luck finding any of that footage now.

Which then begs the question: If these top medical authorities don’t believe the official narrative is supported by science, then why are they enforcing draconian responses to the virus? A clue was leaked to the media this week by Ontario Premier Rob Ford, who said that if he doesn’t comply with the orders of his chief medical officer, politically speaking he might as well “put a noose around my neck and jump off the nearest bridge.”[14] So who’s really in charge—heads of state or medical officials? Compare this statement with the testimony of Swedish scientist Dr. Astrid Stückelberger, formerly employed by the World Health Organization, given to the German Corona Investigative Committee. Dr. Stückelberger explained that countries that are signatories to the WHO are legally bound to obey its health orders and may suffer consequences if they don’t.[15]

Another witness providing testimony to the Corona Investigative Committee is Vera Sharav, a Jewish descendant of Holocaust survivors, advocate for human rights and founder of the Alliance for Human Research Protection. The AHRP is a ‘watchdog’ organization “whose goal is to unlock the walls of secrecy in biomedical research and bring accountability to that endeavour.”[16] Sharav testified before the Committee that, “The stark lesson of the Holocaust is that whenever doctors join forces with government and deviate from their personal, professional, clinical commitment to do no harm to the individual, medicine can then be perverted from a healing, humanitarian profession to a murderous apparatus. …What sets the Holocaust apart from all other mass genocides is the pivotal role played by the medical establishment.”[17]

This then answers neatly the question of how global compliance to a false narrative is obtained. It relies, as I’ve said repeatedly in answer to those who dismiss this as a ‘conspiracy theory,’ on the tried and tested principle of hierarchy—specifically, military hierarchy. Only the top levels of command are ever fully briefed as to the agenda; everyone else in the chain of command right down to the lowest, local level is simply expected to follow orders or face dismissal. Add to that the fact that corporate influence through lobbying has led to a creeping corruption at nearly all levels of government in recent decades. One study referred to the American FCC (Federal Communications Commission) as a “captured agency,” meaning of course corporate capture.[18]

I know this from personal experience. Despite scientific evidence that the microwave frequencies used in wireless gadgets and cellphones are harmful, Health Canada has consistently refused to revise its public radiation exposure standards. I’ve met or interviewed three dissident Health Canada scientists who retired, quit or were fired because their research conflicted with management’s desire to assist products to market. Of relevance to the Covid crisis, witness the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funding to the WHO, which is conditional upon those funds being used only for initiatives directed or supported by the foundation. Clearly, this is not ‘free money’ but influence peddling. Dr. Stückelberger also testified before the Corona Investigative Committee that Gates petitioned the WHO for status equal to that of a sovereign nation, as well as demanding immunity from liability for damages caused by any medical initiatives sponsored by his foundation. While the former was wisely turned down, the latter condition was granted in order to retain his substantial funding. The Gates Foundation is currently the number two funder of the WHO. This is before we even address the absurdity of someone who is neither a scientist nor a trained medical professional dictating the terms of ‘emergency responses’ to ‘novel coronavirus,’ even if that diktat is via the back door route.

As Abraham Lincoln sagely observed, “you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” This week’s international protests are proof positive of that adage. People have been incredibly willing to comply with public health measures, repeatedly assured that they need only do so for 30 days, or 60 days, or whatever, only to find out that yet another lockdown looms on the darkening horizon. Willing even to throw the dice with their long-term health to try experimental vaccines, only to be told they may be useless against the next variant of the virus, or that they still may not be free to travel or hold religious services. Although for some of us this point came early on in the scam, it’s a relief to see the masses at last rising up to say, in the famous words of the 1976 film Network, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
