  1. Vatican cancels live broadcast of Biden greeting pope

    ROME (AP) — The Vatican on Thursday abruptly canceled the planned live broadcast of U.S. President Joe Biden meeting Pope Francis, the latest restriction to media coverage of the Holy See.

    The Vatican press office provided no explanation for why the live broadcast of Biden’s visit had been trimmed to cover just the arrival of the president’s motorcade in the courtyard of the Apostolic Palace, where a Vatican monsignor will greet him.

    Cancelled was any live coverage of Biden actually greeting Francis in the palace Throne Room, as well as the live footage of the two men sitting down to begin their private talks in Francis’ library, at which time the cameras normally would have stopped running.

    The Vatican said it would provide edited footage of the encounter after the fact to accredited media.

    Biden, the second Catholic U.S. president, has met Francis three previous times, but this will be his first as president.

    The audience was being closely monitored since U.S. bishops are due to meet in a few weeks for their annual fall convention, with one of the agenda items inspired by conservatives who contend that Biden’s support for abortion rights should disqualify him from receiving Communion.

    Though any document that emerges from the bishops’ conference is not expected to mention Biden by name, it’s possible there could be a clear message of rebuke.

    Francis has strongly upheld the church’s opposition to abortion, calling it “murder.” But he has said bishops should be pastors, not politicians.

    The Vatican has provided live television coverage for the visits of major heads of state for years and had scheduled such coverage Friday for Biden and before him, for South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is also in Rome for a Group of 20 meeting this weekend.

    Live broadcasts are particularly important because the Vatican hasn’t allowed independent photographers and journalists into papal audiences since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Vatican has continued to cite the pandemic as a reason to deny external media access to the beginnings and ends of papal audiences with visiting leaders, even though they are allowed into other papal events.

    It is during those moments in the pope’s library that reporters can view the gifts that are exchanged, watch as the formal photograph is taken and overhear remarks as the leaders arrive and depart to get a sense of how the pope and his guest have gotten along. Only the pope’s official photographer and Vatican video journalists are now allowed in.

    The Vatican correspondents’ association has protested the cancellation of such pool access and several media outlets, including The Associated Press, formally complained about Thursday’s cut of the live Biden-pope broadcast and asked for an explanation.

    The White House spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, was asked about the limited media access to Biden’s audience and said the administration was “working through every lever we have” to get more access.

    Biden is travelling with his own pool of reporters who would normally be allowed into the pope’s library for the beginning and end of the audience.

    “We believe in the value of the free press. We believe in the value of ensuring you have access to the president’s trips and his visits overseas,” Psaki said during a White House briefing.

    Noting that Biden was a guest and the Vatican the host, she added: “I can’t offer you a guarantee, but I can guarantee you we will continue to advocate.”

  2. paul j watson – Danish Health Minister Threatens to “Shut Down Society” if More People Don’t Get Vaccinated

    Opposition calls announcement a “completely wild message.”

    The Danish health minister is threatening to “shut down society” if more people don’t get vaccinated after the country experienced a COVID spike despite over 75 per cent of the population being fully vaccinated.

    As we highlighted on Monday, Denmark just suffered its worse COVID case load since May, while the virus reproduction (R number) also jumped to 2.01, which is the highest level since January.

    Over 75 per cent of Denmark’s 5.8 million inhabitants have been fully vaccinated.

    Despite the fact that 85 per cent of people over the age of 12 are vaccinated, Denmark has seen more than 1,000 daily cases of COVID for a week straight.

    Now authorities are threatening to “shut down society,” according to opposition party health spokesman Martin Geertsen, if more Danes don’t take the shot.

    “If we are to keep Denmark open, we must have more people get the vaccine,” said Health Minister Magnus Heunicke

    Although Heunicke said the vaccine would remain voluntary, he ominously warned the unvaccinated that their refusal to get the jab “no longer works.”

    Geertsen said the government was breaking its promise to eliminate lockdowns once a high proportion of the population had been vaccinated, adding that Heunicke was sending a “completely wild message.”

    Last year, Danish authorities tried to pass a law that would have allowed the forced vaccination of anyone, with police being used to physically detain people and hold them down while being jabbed, but the effort was abandoned after mass protests.

  3. France: Demonstrators gather outside Senate to protest Sanitary Pass

    Protesters opposing mandates meant to curb the coronavirus pandemic gathered outside the French Senate in Paris, on Wednesday, to demand an end of the Sanitary Pass.

    The rally was led by Patriot Party leader and presidential candidate Florian Philippot, a former MEP who has been a leading figure in antivax and COVID-sceptic movement since the start of the pandemic.

  4. Anti-vax protesters stand outside In-N-Out that refused to check vaccine passports

    Protesters are seen outside of an In-N-Out restaurant claiming the vaccine mandate is a way for government to control citizens. They are on the side of the burger spot’s refusal to check for vaccine status.

    Contra Costa County health officials indefinitely shut the Pleasant Hill restaurant after it ignored repeated warnings and fines to verify that customers who wanted to dine indoors had vaccination cards or proof they had tested negative for the virus in the past 72 hours.

    ‘It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason,’ Chief Legal and Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said in a statement regarding the closing of the Pleasant Hill location.

    The location’s the commercial food permit was suspended ‘for creating a public health hazard by repeatedly violating a county health order intended to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission,’ according to health officials.

    ‘Despite repeated notices of violation and fine, this business continued to permit indoor dining on site without verifying the COVID-19 vaccination status or recent, negative test result of customers,’ a press release from Contra Costa County said.

    The Pleasant Hill location, which is about 30 miles east of San Francisco, was previously fined on two occasions this month – for $250 and $500 – for not checking the vaccination status of indoor diners as required, Contra Costa County health officials said.

    • California readies 4,000 sites to administer 1.2 million Covid vaccines to kids 5 to 11 in first week

      California health officials said Wednesday the state will have 4,000 sites ready to administer 1.2 million Covid shots to children 5 to 11 years old as soon as the vaccines receive full approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

      The announcement came just a day after the Food and Drug Administration’s advisory committee recommended vaccines from Pfizer and BioNTech for that age group. The more than 1.2 million vaccine doses will be ready to distribute within the first week after the shots get approved, said Dr. Erica Pan, the state’s epidemiologist.

      “We have around 4,000 sites that are ready to administer and over 1,000 providers across the state enrolled to vaccinate,” Pan said. “And more than 860,000 doses of vaccine have already been ordered.”

      More than 3.5 million children ages 5 to 11 live in California, roughly 9% of the state’s population, Pan said. The vaccine rollout to young kids could begin as soon as CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky authorizes the shots, which she’s expected to do after the agency’s advisory panel meets Tuesday.

      California’s Department of Public Health is already working with schools to administer vaccines, said Dr. Mark Ghaly, secretary of the state’s Health and Human Services Agency. Some schools in California are collaborating with pharmacies and other health-care providers to give out shots, Ghaly said, adding he expected to see more clinics at education centers appearing in November.

      “By the middle of next month, CDPH, working with a lot of local health jurisdictions and other partners, have planned many vaccine locations at schools,” Ghaly said.

      California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Oct. 1 a vaccine mandate for all public grade school students returning to in-person classes once the FDA issues full approval for each age group. The requirement was the first of its kind nationwide. Pfizer’s currently distributing its vaccine under emergency approval. If it receives final regulatory approval before the end of the year, Newsom said it could take effect for students over 12 as soon as Jan. 1

      Newsom’s plan will unfold in two phases, starting with kids 12 to 17 once the FDA fully clears vaccines for that age group. The order will then expand to kids 5 to 11, pending the FDA’s approval. The FDA is expected to clear the shots for the younger age group as early as this week with full approval expected to take several months longer. White House officials have said the country has a stockpile of doses to immunize all 28 million of the country’s 5 to 11-year-olds.

      If the agency doesn’t fully approve vaccines for those over 12 by the end of the year, Ghaly said the mandate’s starting date would be pushed from January to July. The FDA fully approved Pfizer’s vaccine for everyone 16 and older in August and cleared it for emergency use in adolescents 12 to 15 in May.

      Moderna and J&J’s vaccines are currently approved for use in adults only.

  5. Judea Pearl presents the Daniel Pearl Prize for Courage and Integrity and Journalism to Bari Weiss:
    [excerpt]
    Ruth and I have been presenting this award for almost 20 years now, but Bari redefines its mission along the important dimensions:

    First: what is courage? Second: what is hate? And third: what is the role of journalism in our inverted universe?

    Courage.

    In the past 20 years we have given this award to distinguished journalists who were under physical danger for what they wrote or were about to write. The courage that Bari symbolizes is of different character. It means speaking up the truth under the risk of being bullied, silenced, shamed or feeling unwelcome by the very community you wish to serve and represent.

    The second dimension is antisemitism.

    Over the past 20 years our family has tried to play down the antisemitic component of Danny’s tragedy. We felt that the “universal humanity” dimension of his murder would somehow get attenuated, or tarnished, if connected with parochial issues such as antisemitism or anti-Israelism.

    The recent upsurge in antisemitism, especially through its Zionophobic virus – the delegitimization of Israel – made us recognize that, if we want to be true to our mission of rolling back the hatred that took Danny’s life we must first expose its undercurrents, analyze its anatomy, and understand its circuitry with scientific precision. Bari Weiss has done it for us.

    The third dimension has to do with journalism

    Bari Weiss was not targeted by oppressive regimes, police brutality, drug lords or fanatic terrorists. Her story is an indictment of the journalism profession itself, the herd-following culture that chokes newsrooms, editorial meetings, your cafeterias and other gossip rooms.

    If the environment of a media organization does not permit a staff member to express the idea that a Jewish homeland is a moral imperative, and express it comfortably, matter-of-factly, with no virtue signaling requirements, then that environment is promoting a morally deformed Zionophobia and, then, as Bari put it: “we should start by cleaning up our side of the street.”

    A 36-year-old man was almost beaten to death by three men on a sidewalk in Berlin-Spandau. The thugs were able to flee unrecognized.

    Three men almost killed a 36-year-old man in Berlin-Spandau because he apparently did not share their political views. According to police, the three thugs approached the victim on a sidewalk at Altstädter Ring late Monday night at 10:35 p.m. to address him. They had aggressively asked him to shout loudly “Free Palestine” (freedom for Palestine). But since the Berliner did not want to, the trio brutally punched and kicked him. They then fled in an unknown direction.

    According to police, the 36-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries to his head, after which he lost consciousness for a short time. The crew of an alarmed ambulance took him to a hospital. The criminal investigation department has taken over further investigations. There is no lead to the perpetrators yet, it was said on Tuesday morning.

  7. Excerpts from Bari Weiss’s speech:

    [I]f you study history and if you look at where Jews stand, you will understand where a culture, where a country, where a civilization stands. Whether it’s on the way up or on the way down. Whether it’s expanding its freedoms or contracting them.

    That is because the Jews represent freedom.

    Where liberty thrives, Jews thrive. Where difference is celebrated, Jews are celebrated. Where freedom of thought and faith and speech are protected, Jews tend to be, too. And when such virtues are regarded as threats, Jews will be regarded as the same.

    I’m not saying anything that everyone in this room doesn’t already know to point out that we live in a culture in which difference, in which disagreement, in which thinking free are regarded as heretical. As dangerous. And so, then, are Jews.

    One might imagine, as those in other times and places did, that the solution was to erase our differences. To play them down. To try to get along. To flow with the direction of the stream.

    But the opposite is true. The very opposite….

    Right now we live in an age of the mob. Of groupthink. Of black-and-white purity politics where people are slotted into bad and good, pure and impure, the community of the righteous and the good and those who fall outside of it…

  8. What happens when a state fails? Lebanon’s study in survival.

    The World Bank is calling Lebanon’s economic collapse the worst the world has seen since 1850. The collapse of Lebanon is the product of financial and government mismanagement, political gridlock, and corruption among competing sectarian elites.

    Once a country of glitz and glamour, a financial and shopping hub for the Levant, Beirut and most of Lebanon are in darkness due to a lack of electricity.

    Last week, the government announced it was lifting fuel subsidies, leading to an immediate jump in the prices of gasoline, diesel for generators, and gas cylinders for cooking and heating…

    Since 2019, the collapse of Lebanon’s currency has meant Lebanese have lost 80% of the value of their savings. Fares for buses and shared taxis have shot up to the point where for many, the commute to work costs more than a day’s salary.

    The shuttering of the national water company has left 2.7 million Lebanese without running water….

    The Iranian Revolutionary Apparatus and Hizbullah in West Africa

    There has been an increase in the activities of Iranian partners and proxies in West Africa, including the outreach programs Iran and Hizbullah conduct with the Lebanese Shi’a diaspora in the region. These capitalize on weak governance as well as pre-existing international organized crime groups and smuggling routes.

    There is an urgent need for African countries and their partners to understand the nature and gravity of the threat posed by Iran-linked militant organizations.

    As a result of Lebanese fleeing wars, between 1960 and 1970, the Lebanese population in West Africa rose from 17,000 to 75,000, reaching 150,000 by 1985. Within West Africa, the Lebanese often dominate multiple sectors of the economy.

    Extensive fundraising operations for Hizbullah occur through Lebanese in Africa, as well as enabling it to engage in money laundering, the drug trade, and arms dealing. Hizbullah cells are surreptitiously provided cover by Iranian diplomatic offices as well as Iran’s steady development of social infrastructure which is used to conceal illicit activity.

    There are 4 million Shi’a Muslims in Nigeria, 2 million in Tanzania, and 900,000 in Niger, with smaller numbers in the Ivory Coast, Kenya, Uganda, and Senegal.

    The Myth of Lone-Wolf Terrorism: Would David Amess still be alive if someone had spoken up?

    [Denouncing] facts as racist – especially when the person in question was referred to Prevent, and police and security services believe he may have been inspired by al-Shabaab in Somalia – forces a dangerous ignorance on the public.

    Yet it is just one of a number of fallacies that continue to dominate almost every discussion about Islamist-driven terrorism – fallacies that are promoted by both the media and British authorities.

    Indeed, it strikes me that our efforts to counter Islamist attacks are hindered by at least three other misconceptions: our insistence on describing a perpetrator as a “lone wolf”, our obsession with online self-radicalisation, and the idea that “all extremisms are created equal”.

    Over 20 percent of the population: number of foreign-born at record high

    The proportion of people not born in Austria reached a new sad record last year: 1.798 million of the population were born abroad, and the number of foreigners in this country has grown enormously, especially since 2015.

    Federal Germans still the largest group

    As the figures published by the Austrian Integration Fund (ÖIF) just in time for the national holiday show, 200,000 new foreigners have come to Austria since the “refugee” crisis in 2015. The largest group of foreign-born persons is made up of Federal Germans, with a total of just under 255,000 of them living in the Republic of Austria on January 1, 2021. With 172,400 persons, migrants from Bosnia and Herzegovina represent the second largest group in the ranking, followed by Turks (159,100).

    Almost 40 percent of Viennese born abroad

    With 37.1 percent of the population, Vienna unsurprisingly has the highest number of foreigners – with Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus and its share of foreigners of 48 percent, the federal capital is also home to the district with the highest share of migrants in Austria. While Serbs represent the largest immigrant group in Vienna, in Upper Austria (16.1 percent share of foreigners) most foreign-born come from Bosnia and Herzegovina, while in Lower Austria (13.2 percent) and Styria (13.4 percent) Romanians are most strongly represented.

    In Tyrol (19.2 percent), Carinthia (13.2 percent), Salzburg (19.9 percent) and Vorarlberg (21.6 percent), Germans from the Federal Republic make up the largest group of foreign-born. In contrast, the smallest share of foreign-born in the population is found in Burgenland, at twelve percent; the people here most often come from neighboring Hungary.

    German as a colloquial language increasingly rare

    The Corona pandemic could also have a slight effect: Overall, 136,000 new people were registered in Austria last year, slightly less than in the previous year – at that time, there were about 14,000 more immigrants.

    The high proportion of foreigners is also reflected in the recorded language skills of the children: in the 2019/2020 school year, 27.4 of the students spoke a language other than German at home; in 2016, the proportion of students with a colloquial language other than German was significantly lower at just under 24 percent.

    Foreigners more often unemployed – but more likely to give birth

    A total of 15.3 percent of all foreigners were unemployed last year (in September 2021, the unemployment rate for the entire population was just 6.5 percent). This means that while immigrants are more often out of work, they have significantly more children on average than the native population: While Austrian-born women had a reproduction rate of 1.35, Afghan, Syrian and Iraqi women were particularly fertile, with an average of 2.88 children, and Turkish women with 2.04 children.

  15. New escalation stage in the attempt to subjugate Poland

    The ECJ, whose jurisdiction is opaque, to say the least, in terms of its legitimacy alone, has now taken up the Commission’s thrust and condemned Poland.

    A 1 million euro fine now costs every day every day that Poland fails to make the corrections to its judicial reform to its judicial reform.

    It sounds a lot like Greece’s submission to the EU’s austerity dictates, only this time in the area of justice. It sounds like excessive hubris in the Brussels command center.

    Once again, one of the explosive devices at the EU’s weld seams has been detonated. Whether it will be enough for Poland to secede is not yet clear. In any case, I wish the Poles a lot of backbone and the courage to break out of the cage with the gilded bars. Perhaps a cooperation with the British can be forged…

    With the Green Passport into the Social Credit System

    Covid – The Pandemic of Untruths

    The compulsory vaccination and “green passport” must be decisively opposed NOW. Once this digital social credit system has established itself as the basis for granting “new freedoms,” it is too late. By Chris Veber

    It is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. The vaccines have no side effects. The vaccines protect. This is hammered into us every day by the government and the pharmaceutical industry. The new Chancellor Schallenberg said, “It’s going to be tough for the unvaccinated for the next few months,” and Health Minister Mueckstein wants to tie the right to work (i.e., material existence) to a “3G” rule. Test daily or get injected, those are the alternatives. Obviously, cutting off leisure time and social life was not enough of a vaccination incentive.

    Let’s treat ourselves to an injection through truth in the face of this pandemic of lies.

    Hartmut Glossmann (physician, pharmacologist with additional training in clinical pharmacology, emeritus full university professor for biochemical pharmacology at the Medical University of Innsbruck, pharmacologist and clinical pharmacologist in the ethics committee in Innsbruck and Giessen) has sent several letters to the rector of the Medical University of Innsbruck, Wolfgang Fleischhacker, and the Tyrolean Health Regional Councillor, Annette Leja, several letters in which he points out (not for the first time) the dangers of vaccination coverage for students and the Tyrolean population.

    According to Statistics Austria, the probability of dying from covid for those under 70 (!) years old in 2020 was 1 in 11,228.5. For those under 40, 1 in 289,858.5. For those under 30, 0. To put these numbers in perspective: The odds of dying on the road were 1 in 25,921.5.

    Dr. Glossmann now warns that “for certain age groups (predominantly young
    males, in clear dependence on the number of doses, i.e. after 2 doses much more frequently than after one dose) a frequency of the syndrome ‘myocarditis’ (acute non-ischemic myocardial damage, including cases without clinical symptoms) of about 1:1,000 can be expected.” – and that, in his opinion, this “represents only the tip of an iceberg.”

    So again, the odds of dying from covid in college students range from 0 to 1 in 289,858.5, depending on age. The odds of developing myocarditis as a result of vaccination in young men are 1 in 1,000, and the mortality rate for myocarditis is 40 percent within 10 years.

    Furthermore, according to Dr. Glossmann, these side effects are typical for the mRNA substances from Moderna and Pfizer/Biontech (class effect); they occur much less frequently with the vector substance from Janssen, for example. A clear relationship with dose exists: 2 doses lead to side effects much more frequently than one dose. And the data support a sex correlation (“80-95% male, especially after 2 doses”).

    According to Glossmann, it should also be taken into account when assessing the risk that the spike protein in an infection with Covid affects the upper respiratory tract in most cases and many organs only in certain severe cases. In contrast, after an injection, the spike protein is present throughout the body (“after fusion with lipid nanoparticles (LNP), production of the spikes occurs in all cells capable of protein biosynthesis”).

    Furthermore, the type of substance has an influence on the development of myopericarditis. In mice, intramuscular inoculation with a very high dose of 5 micrograms of spike mRNA resulted in degeneration of cardiac myocytes in 33 percent of cases, and 61.5 percent when injected intravenously. Furthermore, the damage to the mice was dose dependent – “2 doses lead to massive damage.”

    This dose dependence is also evident in humans, according to Glossmann and the many studies he cites. Moderna contains 3.3 times more mRNA than Pfizer/Biontech and therefore leads to more clinically striking cases of damage. A third injection with Biontech/Pfizer could therefore have just as severe side effects as an injection with Moderna. Because of this dose dependence, Dr. Glossmann also warns against a pandemic of the vaccinated: “In my letter of September 4, 2021, to his magnificence Prof. Fleischhacker, I pointed out that a ‘pandemic’ of the vaccinated (students, physicians, nursing staff) could be expected. This seems to be obviously the case. The dose dependence of myocarditis (after mRNA injection) would also lead to increased damage to the heart after spike mRNA injection in COVID-19 sufferers in the now clearly identified population at risk.”

    Dr. Glossmann also warns “the heart muscle (cardiac muscle cells) cannot regenerate, scars remain. There are other organs (brain, kidney, adrenal glands, ovary, testes, etc.) that can suffer acute damage from spikes or their fragments or by immunological mechanisms.” Dr. Glossmann therefore calls on the rector of MedUni to immediately stop the vaccination of students.

    “From many decades of experience as a member of first the Ethics Committee in Giessen and then in Innsbruck, and as a pharmacologist, I predict that the biggest drug scandal I have ever experienced is brewing. Therefore, I expect and urgently request that you immediately cancel the quasi-mandatory vaccination for students, instruct the doctors at the hospital to perform such vaccinations only after complete (documented in writing) information of the patients about all suspected, including the now proven UAWs (Adverse Drug Reactions), inform the study directors (Med. Uni Innsbruck is sponsor of the studies), as well as point out to the vaccinators at the hospital that they could be held civilly, if necessary, also criminally responsible.”

    The reaction of the university? By and large, silence. The reaction of Health State Councilwoman Leja? Silence. And, of course, vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate.

    In Austria, 14,153 people died between July 26 and Sept. 26, 2021 (weeks 30-38), for a current 62.10 percent of the population that received “full vaccination protection.” In the comparable period last year, when the population was exposed to the virus without vaccination, 13,592 people died. With vaccination, 561 (or 4.13 percent) more people died. Among men under 65, the difference is even more pronounced (5.42 percent), with 1,420 deaths in 21 compared to 1,347 deaths in 20. Also, the number of people who officially died from/with Covid in October (numbers through Oct. 20) this year is 170, up 11.9 percent from 152 deaths in the same period in 2020. The numbers suggest that Dr. Glossmann’s warnings are accurate.

    But silence and further vaccination is also in other places. On 07.10.21, I personally sent a registered letter to the disciplinary department of the Austrian Medical Association and Medical Association President Thomas Szekeres, requesting that Health Minister Dr. Wolfgang Mückstein be banned from practicing his profession and removed from the list of physicians. The reason?

    “Mr. Mückstein vehemently advocates the vaccination of minors aged 12 years and older against Covid19 (see among others Kurier 14.07.21 “Kurz und Mückstein rufen die Jungen “eindringlich” zur Impfung” or apa message of 24.06.2021 “Coronavirus: Gesundheitsminister Mückstein hält an Impfempfehlung für Kinder und Jugendliche fest”).

    Mr. Mückstein is aware that, according to Statistics Austria, no person under 30 died of/with Covid in 2020. Mr. Mückstein is also aware of the AGES statistics, according to which as of 07.10.2021 14:00 the percentage of deaths from/with Covid among the under 45-year-olds can only be represented as 0.0%.

    According to media reports, Dr. Mückstein also actively participates in vaccination campaigns himself.

    Mr. Mueckstein must be aware that young people and especially minors do not die from Covid19. His claim to want to protect children from “long covid” can only be seen as a protective claim. Mr. Mückstein cannot present a single study with a control group that proves that children who were infected with the covid virus would suffer different health consequences than children who had no contact with the covid virus. Simply enumerating alleged “long covid” consequences among formerly infected individuals is as scientifically sound as enumerating illnesses among sneaker wearers. Without a control group, these statements are not tenable.

    Instead, there are studies showing that “long covid” does not pose a risk to children (“This study suggests a low prevalence of symptoms compatible with long COVID in a randomly selected population-based cohort of children followed over 6 months after serological testing.” Long-term symptoms after SARS-CoV-2 infection in school children: population-based cohort with 6-months follow-up. Thomas Radtke, University of Zurich, et al).

    Furthermore, Mr. Mückstein is aware that the vaccines against Covid19 have only a conditional approval and, according to the information provided by the manufacturers, due to the rapid development time of the vaccines and their components, the long-term side effects as well as the efficacy of the vaccines are not known and undesirable side effects may occur which are currently unknown.

    Thus, by advocating exposing non-vulnerable patients without personal benefit to a treatment whose risks are unknown, Mr. Mückstein is violating the medical principle of primum non nocere. Performing a medical intervention (which is what a vaccination is) without achieving a benefit for the patient is a treatment error.

    Further, it violates the Declaration of Geneva and the Physician’s Pledge. “The health and welfare of my patient will be my primary concern. I will respect the autonomy and dignity of my patient.” Neither is he acting in the interest of the health of those not at risk, nor is he respecting their autonomy with the pressure he is steadily increasing for Covid19 vaccination.

    Mr. Mückstein also violates the basic principles of diagnostics with the mass tests he conducts on healthy (asymptomatic) people (“Wrong diagnostic procedure: Shotgun diagnostics. Order of many tests (sic) at the same time with the hope of a hit” Klaus Lechner & Maria Kraut, Grundlagen der Diagnostik, Med Uni Wien).

    Finally, Mr. Mückstein violates the legal obligation for a detailed medical consultation including a clarification of the patient’s health status and information about his personal risks during the upcoming treatment with the rapid mass vaccinations in bustles, shopping malls and other places far away from the doctor’s office that he promotes and demands.

    Mr. Mückstein therefore violates both as a simple physician in his actions (vaccination of children & adolescents) and as the “supreme physician” of the country, as Minister of Health, with his actions, instructions, interviews & regulations against legal foundations for physicians, against good scientific practice and against the health and welfare of the patients affected by his actions, who are not endangered by Covid19. In doing so, he has proven himself both unworthy and untrustworthy as a physician.

    I request a prompt decision on this matter in light of the ongoing risk to children and adolescents posed by Mr. Mueckstein’s conduct.”

    The letter was brief and based on facts that were as easy to verify as possible. It would be easy for the Disciplinary Commission to either reject my request (we are talking about the Minister of Health) or to comply with it and prohibit Mückstein from practicing his profession (unlikely, we are talking about the Minister of Health).

    Only, neither from the Commission nor from President Szekeres an answer is to be received. Despite three telephone inquiries (during which President Szekeres was always denied), despite inquiries by mail/facebook/twitter, the Medical Association remains silent.

    My interpretation of the facts: The Chamber cannot acquit Mückstein; the accusations are too obviously in line with the facts. The Chamber does not want to condemn Mückstein, after all it is the Minister of Health and President Szekeres a fanatical supporter of 110% vaccination coverage of the population (recently he demanded tax relief only for vaccinated people). So the president and the disciplinary commission have opted for a typically Austrian solution. They want to sit the matter out and hope that grass will grow over it.

    Now the only question remains, why do politicians insist on vaccinating everyone from children to the elderly, regardless of benefit or risk? By everyone, I mean everyone. In Germany, for example, 80 percent of the population is now vaccinated, which is not enough. The German Minister of Health, Spahn, is suggesting that the “pandemic” be officially ended. But he wants to keep the “measures”, i.e. compulsory masks, restrictions on freedom and compulsory vaccination. Forever.

    So why? One explanation is the pharmaceutical industry. Biontech, for example, has hired Jens Spahn’s ex-head of office as its chief lobbyist. Why, if the purchase of Biontech cans is the only way to save the world? Surely this should also be possible without lobbyists? Of course Pfizer/Biontech has a financial interest in selling us all at least 2 “Boostershots” per year until the end of our lives (according to Drosten the effect decreases massively after 2 to 3 months). And the pharmaceutical industry has not been known to be particularly squeamish in its choice of methods. Billion-dollar fines for bribery, misleading advertising, false claims about drugs and their effects, etc. speak for themselves.

    But I think even more appealing to politicians is the introduction of the “green passport”. This created a digital passport without which it is no longer possible to participate in life. Anyone who wants to work needs a “green passport.” Anyone who wants to travel needs a “green passport.” Anyone who wants to go to an inn needs a … you know. Currently, the QR code of the “green passport” opens the doors if all Covid boosters are entered in time (in Israel, a “booster” is currently due every 6 months). But the applications are many and unlimited. In addition to Corona, many other viruses will hit humanity and make mandatory vaccinations necessary, possibly including old acquaintances like the flu. No vaccination, no freedom.

    But the application is not limited to diseases. You violate the “good climate law”? Gives an entry in the “green passport” and the QR code excludes you. You have publicly expressed controversial opinions (lateral thinker)? Gives an entry in the “green passport” and the QR code excludes you. Once you have allowed a government agency to determine your life via QR code, you have given up all freedoms and basic rights. This power attracts politicians like moths to a flame.

    That is why they continue to vaccinate by hook or by crook, regardless of the consequences. That is why it is neither enough that a “vaccination” has been developed. Nor that everyone has received a vaccination offer (remember? Then the “pandemic” would be over). Or that 2/3 of the population has been vaccinated. By now, the vaccination rate must probably be over 100 percent. And even then, unfortunately, an end to the pandemic would not be in sight.

    The vaccination compulsion and “green passport” must be decisively opposed NOW. Once this digital social credit system has established itself as the basis for granting “new freedoms,” it is too late.

    Marburg virus: the next “pandemic”?

    Some evidence suggests that the “Marburg virus” may be used to maintain restrictive measures and cover up vaccine damage.

    The mainstream media would have focused on the first deaths caused by the Marburg virus, writes Italian journalist Marcello Pamio on Disinformazione.it. And when the megaphones of the dictatorship would shout, there would always be something to it.

    Even WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus raised the issue at a press conference in Geneva, Pamio adds, pointing out that the Marburg virus “is very different from the virus that causes Covid-19.” But many elements of the response are the same, he said: such as isolating and treating infected individuals, tracing and quarantining contacts, and involving local communities in the response.

    Unfortunately, he said, it’s not just the head of WHO who is speculating about a possible next pandemic involving Marburg. The infamous GAVI of “psychophilanthropist” Bill Gates had also written an article on April 22, 2021, with the ominous title “The next pandemic: Marburg?”

    In recent months, he said, many other publications have speculated about a similar looming threat. “Why the special attention?” asks Pamio. After all, the Marburg virus would cause a hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola.

    An interesting working hypothesis, he says, came from Laura Carosi, who published the testimony of a necropsy doctor who performs autopsies at Covid hospitals but has remained anonymous for security reasons. This doctor had received a circular about a probable infiltration of yellow fever in Venezuela, she said.

    “They say that yellow fever, or worse, Marburg virus, has arrived. Both cause thrombosis/microthrombosis and bleeding in the intestinal tract. So they are blaming the two viruses for the damage to the covid vaccinated, meaning they are covering up the deaths. Curiously, PCR tests for yellow fever and Marburg are on the way. Here is the new pandemic,” he said.

    This is apparently not a conspiracy, Pamio says, because the company Primerdesign developed a PCR test for Marburg hemorrhagic fever in 2018.

    “Someone should tell me right now who is the crazy person spending money to develop a test for a rare disease!” said Pamio.

    And also coincidentally, the company Soligenix is rushing in to test a vaccine for Marburg hemorrhagic fever. Soligenix shareholders – BlackRock, Goldman Sachs & Co. etc. – are all involved in the development of the vaccine, he said. Pamio continued:

    “Maybe someone is already thinking about the next pandemic to keep the slaves in a constant state of health emergency? Or even blaming the Marburg virus for the deaths caused instead by the side effects of the anti-covid vaccines (microthrombosis and microclots). Effects that grow and intensify with constant boosters. Or both together…”

  20. Apple takes down Bible app in China to appease communist regime

    Apple has removed a popular Bible app and a Quran app in China after the communist country’s regime deemed that the apps violated local laws on hosting religious texts.

    Bible App by Olive Tree, which has over 1 million downloads, and Quran Majeed, used by millions of Muslims, have been taken down due to compliance issues, the tech company told the BBC.

    Apple refused to comment but directed the BBC to its Human Rights Policy: “We’re required to comply with local laws, and at times there are complex issues about which we may disagree with governments.”

    Apple also told the BBC that the apps had been removed because Chinese officials had stated they violated laws on hosting illegal religious texts.
