A few curios to start the day: Links 1, January 12, 2022

First a nice little quote lifted from Kennedy’s book, The Real Anthony Fauci:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

—C. S. Lewis

1. Jordan Peterson: Open the damn country back up, before Canadians wreck something we can’t fix

[…] But there are empty shelves in the grocery stores here in Fairview. The supply chain that provides our food — just in time — are severely stressed. While I was here, I spoke with a local restaurateur who operates the pizza place I worked in forty years ago. She is barely hanging on. This is true of most local businesses.

I was on the phone for three hours trying to sort out a minor banking issue, after being delayed for a full day while flying, after having been delayed in a similar way only four days before. And, because I am an entitled Westerner, accustomed to my privileges, I got whiny about it. I have a banker that takes care of my affairs, and I sent him and his associate a string of complaints about the service I was receiving. They wrote back, apologetically, and told me that they’re barely able to function with the COVID restrictions, the attendant staff shortages (also caused by illness) and their inability to attract new employees — a problem besetting many industries at the moment. […]

2. Interviews with protestors in Montreal.

3. Being bad at math, I can’t say for sure what this is about. My instincts though, are that the government of Ontario are covering for lies and stupidity with more lies and stupidity. In this case, they appear to be honestly adjusting statistics in order to know the truth about Covid and hospital admissions, I wonder if this adjustment isn’t really to cover up the fact that a large majority of the in hospital patients have been fully vaccinated. Or some other attempt to cling to the vaxx narrative

Which brings me to this interesting bit of censorship. The CEO of Pfizer made a video where he explains that the efficacy of the first 2 shots is near zero now. But a 3rd shot might offer some protection. Apparently, Pfizer made a Copyright claim on it and all copies under Twitter control managed to get gone. But its still out there. I have seen ones which are black squares with the notice of removal.

Listening to this guy makes you wonder how he escaped from Tau Ceti IV.

4. Apparently the Taliban was going to stop the forced prostitution of young boys of the Afghan custom of Bacha Bazi. But they seem to be about as good at that as stopping the heroin trade.

Bacha Bazi is a whole hell of a lot more brutal than this shows. A better example would be this:

(I wonder if VICE would do work like this today.)

5. Top Israeli Immunologist—Time for the Israel Ministry of Health to Admit Mass COVID-19 Vaccination a Failure

A top Israeli immunologist has gone on the record in a candid message to that country’s Ministry of Health: it’s time to call out what a growing number of experts inherently already know—the complete eradication of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen via mass vaccination has failed in Israel. “With booster after booster planned now, what else would the outcome be with an ever-mutating pathogen?”, goes the logic of Ehud Qimron who leads Tel Aviv University’s Department of Microbiology.

TrialSite translated the original media piece written in Hebrew, which also emphasizes that Professor Qimron went on the record back in August 2020 declaring that “History will judge the hysteria.” 

The Truth Shall Set You Free…for Emergency Damage Control

The top immunologist opens up, stating that while the truth can be kept from the public for a while, he implies that there is no stopping the flood of real-world data, and ultimately, knowledge based on cracks in the levee of information suppression can cause significant damage, thus turning society upside down if leadership isn’t ready with emergency planning.

Thank you Johnny U., Yucki, M., Snaphanen.DK., Hellequin GB., MissPiggy, HeHa, Sassy, Oz-Rita and a long list of people who are pushing harder as the state becomes more insanely authoritarian.

  1. ** Quebec plans to hit unvaccinated with a ‘significant’ tax **

    The ‘health contribution’ announced by Premier Legault would become the first such tax in Canada

    The Quebec government wants to impose a “significant” financial penalty on the ‘small minority’ of Quebecers who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

    Premier François Legault made the announcement — which would be a first in Canada — during a press conference on Tuesday. He said he was working on the tax with Finance Minister Eric Girard while also reviewing the measure’s legality.

    “Unfortunately, there is still a small minority, about 10 per cent of the population, that refuses to get vaccinated,” Legault said. “I sense the frustration from Quebecers towards that minority that … is clogging our hospitals.”

    “That is why I am announcing that we are currently working on a health contribution that will be charged to all Quebec adults who refuse to get vaccinated,” he continued, adding that people with medical exemptions would be excluded from the new tax.

    Legault did not announce any details nor a date for the new tax, nor did he specify the amount except to say that it would be “significant.”

    Legault said that unvaccinated Quebecers currently occupy 50 per cent of intensive care unit beds in the province, despite being one tenth of the population.

    “It is shocking,” he said. “People who refuse to get vaccinated impose a burden on (healthcare) personnel and an important financial burden on the majority of Quebecers.”

    “All adults in Quebec who don’t accept to go get at least a first dose in the next few weeks will have a bill to pay because there are consequences on our health system and its not up to all Quebecers to pay for that.”

    The premier estimates that 1,000 more hospital employees and 1,500 long-term care workers are needed to get through the fifth wave fueled by the extremely transmissible Omicron variant.

    Legault made the announcement at the same time as he announced a new head of the province’s public health agency. Dr. Luc Boileau is replacing Dr. Horatio Arruda, who announced his resignation Monday evening namely because he feared he had lost the confidence of the public.

    Quebec has imposed some of the strictest restrictions on its population throughout the pandemic, including two separate curfews (one in the winter of 2021, and one currently in effect since the beginning of the month).

  2. I can think of a few other taxes that they could add.

    But the one that would raise the most money would be a tax on STUPIDITY.

    That would solve all our financial problems!

  3. French court rules that voluntary vaccination against Corona is equivalent to suicide – Therefore, an insurance company does not need to pay out life insurance premiums in the case of voluntarily vaccinated customers

    https://medforth.biz/french-court-rules-that-voluntary-vaccination-against-corona-is-equivalent-to-suicide-therefore-an-insurance-company-does-not-need-to-pay-out-life-insurance-premiums-in-the-case-of-voluntarily-vacc/

    • Thank you Fred.

      “Here is the judgment summarised mutatis mutandis:

      “The court recognises the insurer’s classification of participation in the phase three experiment, the proven harmlessness of which has not been established, in view of the announced side effects, including death, as voluntary assumption of a fatal risk not covered by the contract and legally recognised as suicide. The family has appealed. However, the insurer’s defence is accepted as well-founded and contractually justified, as this publicly disclosed taking of a fatal risk is legally recognised as suicide, as the client was notified and agreed to voluntarily take the risk of death without being obliged or compelled to do so.”

      Consequently, death after vaccination is now considered suicide by the courts (at least in France)! ”

      Therefore, companies ‘encouraging’ their staff to get vaccinated, are removing the payout of health insurance.

  4. #4 Bachi Baza is disgusting. It may interest readers to know that something similar was practised in Turkey:

    Köçek
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6%C3%A7ek
    “They were said to be “sensuous, attractive, effeminate”, and their dancing “sexually provocative”. Dancers minced and gyrated their hips in slow vertical and horizontal figure eights, rhythmically snapping their fingers and making suggestive gestures. Often acrobatics, tumbling and mock wrestling were part of the act. The köçeks were sexually exploited, often by the highest bidder.
    [..]
    Before starting their performance, the köçek danced among the spectators, to make them more excited. In the audience, competition for their attention often caused commotions and altercations. Men would go wild, breaking their glasses, shouting themselves voiceless, or fighting and sometimes killing each other vying for the opportunity to rape, molest, or otherwise force the children into sexual servitude.[10] This resulted in suppression of the practice under Sultan Abd-ul-Mejid I.
    [..]
    They were outlawed in 1837 due to fighting among audience members over the dancers.[11] With the suppression of harem culture under Sultan Abdulaziz (1861–1876) and Sultan Abdul Hamid II (1876–1908), köçek dance and music lost the support of its imperial patrons and gradually disappeared.
    Köçeks were much more sought after than the çengi (“belly dancers”), their female counterparts. Some youths were known to have been killed by the çengi, who were extremely jealous of men’s attention toward the boys.”

    Apparently it’s been re-introduced, in the context of queer theory. This paper also blames Erdogan’s party:

    The Zenne: Male Belly Dancers and Queer Modernity in Contemporary Turkey
    https://www.cambridge.org/core/services/aop-cambridge-core/content/view/4DEB67C60F4B97EC6E99CCFD7069CEE4/S0307883317000049a.pdf/zenne_male_belly_dancers_and_queer_modernity_in_contemporary_turkey_1.pdf
    “This article explores the history and contemporary revival of male belly dancers – zenne or koc¨¸ek – in Turkey and in cities with large Turkish populations, such as Berlin. What does the current revival of male belly dancing tell us about the relationship between modern ideologies of sex and gender and narratives of modernity as they have taken shape in Turkey? The zenne dancer embodies the contradictions of contemporary Turkish culture, which includes a variety of same-sex practices, along with sexual taxonomies that have developed in collusion with discourses of modernity. The revival of zenne dancing can be seen as part of a series of global transformations in the visibility of gay, lesbian, and trans people in popular culture and public discourse. However, it is also an unpredicted consequence of the Justice and Development Party’s (Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi, AKP) purposeful revival and romanticization of Turkey’s Ottoman past, which has been ahistorically remembered as more pious than the present. Re-emerging in the twenty-first century as an embodiment of competing definitions of sexuality and modernity in contemporary Turkey, precisely at a moment when Turkish national identity is a hotly contested issue, the zenne dancer is queer ghost, returning to haunt (and seduce) the present.”

    This kind of thing is also common in Pakistan (“The land of the pure”). Sexual exploitation of street boys, but also institutionalized prostitution:

    Porn, Prostitution, or Death: Being Trans in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
    https://globalvoices.org/2016/08/06/porn-prostitution-or-death-being-trans-in-pakistans-khyber-pakhtunkhwa/
    In June, three armed men broke into a home in Mansehra and attempted to rape the person living there, whom they ended up shooting several times. That person is a transgender woman named Kashi, who is only one of many transgender women in Pakistan to have been attacked in recent months. In May, Alehsa, a transgender woman and an activist with the group “Trans Action”, died in the hospital after being shot six times by attackers. Before hear death, Alesha was being propositioned to film pornographic videos, which she refused to do.

    However, according to a study done in 2009, titled ‘Care seeking for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) symptoms in Pakistan’, over half of the female sexual workers, male sexual workers, transsexuals, intravenous drug abusers and truck drivers who had experienced symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases received treatment for their symptoms. The study also states that approximately one third of them did not report their symptoms to a healthcare unit. Most care is received from private clinics rather than public ones. Genital-related symptoms were the most commonly reported.
