Wouldn't surprise me if these cover-ups weren't going on all over the world. People dying and/or having adverse events from the vaxx. Only recently, I did a shift associated with ED. Many admissions were for people with weird neurlogical complaints (and in one case an obstetric issue - although I don't know whether her pregancy will progress, now), post the vaccine. This is something that is NEVER asked by doctors and the information was independently volunteered by the patients. "I had the jab last week/2 days ago" etc

Indeed. There is a good Telegram group where German medical professionals share their experiences and they also report complete denial and cognitive dissonance in most doctors. Here are two translated examples of recent reports:

At my recent shifts I estimate that 50% of the ambulance use was due to, in my opinion, consequences of the 'vaccination'. In every case, the emergency physicians categorically ruled out that there could be a connection (what can't be, can't be). Mostly the doctors said that they had never seen such symptoms in connection with a 'vaccination' (!).

Gastrobleeding in 32 yr old (cause unexplained).
75f, cyanotic, blue lips, skin rashes, edema, diarrhea, itching, aching limbs for ~2 weeks. "Cause maybe allergy flare" (pat. no allergic reactions for years and then they never looked like this).
82f with unexplained pain in arm, thorax, left thigh. Circulatory parameters unremarkable (sedative received).
34f unexplained weakness and occasional syncope "psych. causes" for weeks (sent home - rest).
42f unexplained seemingly uncontrollable twitching of all limbs (language barrier - no history possible).
54m malaise and mild thoracic discomfort after nap unsuccessful rea.
42m Pain in 'vaccine arm' for 2 weeks then sensory disturbances in one leg. Doctor: "it's from back and sitting wrong!".

I see a massive problem in the fact that the medical profession categorically rejects a connection in any patient. They do not even take this into consideration. The patients are partly seen as simulators and the complaints are belittled. Cautious indications of a possible connection are sometimes even aggressively rejected. Documentation of a possible correlation is downright prevented.

When will doctors start to become aware of the problem? I can't even imagine how much suffering is currently occurring when many other patients are suffering in this way. How much is not treated and examined. How much blame the medical profession is taking on .

They need to keep holding on to the narrative. Should they start to question it, the cognitive dissonance must be killing them. The guilt alone if they actively participated in the gene experiment.... "It can't be!" - almost as bad as "we've always done it that way!"

Hang in there. Don't let yourself be pressured. I hear daily from colleagues, trainees, interns, friends, acquaintances, ... that they are not participating. There will be a way to get through the whole thing and in the end, hopefully, everything will be okay again. Everything cleared up, worked through, ...

We just have to continue to try to enlighten, to oppose and to network, to support each other.

Hello dear group, here are my thoughts from the perspective of a doctor.
Maybe they are interesting and useful for one or the other.

I have been working as a family physician and as an emergency physician for several years.

[...]

I was suspicious of "vaccination" from the beginning. It is both basic knowledge and practical experience that virtually everything that is injected intramuscularly arrives a short time later in the bloodstream and then at the target organ (e.g. sedatives, centrally acting painkillers - brain). The idea that the "vaccine" remains in the deltoid muscle seemed to me rather naive.

It is foreseeable that the vehicles, be it lipid particles (mRNA) or adenovirus constructs (DNA), enter the circulation and preferentially "get out" at the site of slowest blood flow velocity, i.e. in the capillary bed, and here first transfect the "inner wallpaper" (endothelial cells), answered by an immune attack (T-cells, complement reaction), resulting in endothelial damage with possible capillary occlusion as a consequence. Especially in case of repeated "vaccinations", when the immune system has already been "sharpened".

Naive seemed to me also the statement in the patient information sheets that the spike protein is harmless -- a protein foreign to the body, which fulfills an essential biological task in the real virus and is now produced in full length (albeit modified), thus presumably functional? What a daring thesis!

And the argument that, despite the accelerated approval, we actually already have decades of experience with mRNA therapies, for example in (experimental) cancer therapy, is rather disturbing to me: The goal is completely different. In cancer therapy, the goal is to destroy something ...

I have completely withdrawn from corona vaccination activities in our practice for these reasons. I cannot justify it medically and therefore it is neither compatible with the medical ethos (primum non nocere - first of all do no harm) nor with my conscience.

The absurdly high remuneration in the vaccination centers (150 Euro per hour on weekdays, 185 Euro per hour on weekends) I can only consider as hush money. It is clear that a remuneration that exceeds the hourly rate of an emergency physician or hospital assistant physician by orders of magnitude carries a conflict of interest that effectively prevents criticism from participating physicians.

My colleagues accept the decision; they can partially understand my concerns described above, but they do not draw any consequence from it. The "backing" by the official recommendations by BMG, KV, STIKO weighs too heavily. I am alone with my opinion, as a special case; all other employees are vaccinated and propagate this also in the context of their activity. In fact, I personally do not know any colleagues who share my concerns, who follow the current publications on PubMed (also regarding prophylaxis and therapy options) or who read on telegram.

Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

The justification given by many doctors seems to be: "We have never seen such symptoms after a vaccination, so it cannot be due to the vaccination." They completely ignore that people have never been injected with spike protein producing mRNA.

Here are dozens of whistleblower testimonials from medical professionals in Australia as well:


They also report an increase in vaxx injuries and denial among doctors, as well as patients being afraid of even suggesting a possible connection to the injections. They also have a Telegram group where new whistleblower testimonies are published.

Now the government in Quebec, Canada has pushed back it's mandatory vaccine date of Oct.15th to Nov. 15th!

From the article -
The Legault government had announced the vaccine mandate back in September as a warning to all health and social services workers to get immunized by Oct. 15, but on Wednesday the health minister acknowledged that the goal was unattainable.

Interesting. It's like the other side just blinked during a stare down.

Yep. And it's not like Legault is a DeSantis. He's pro-vax as they come and they (gov+media) are not spinning it as a win, but as a disappointment. That's a continuation of not-a-good-sign.

Still. At least they blinked.

Tweeter land deletes Actor Letitia Wrights page from voicing her opinion.

1634189885849.png


The Hollywood Reporter alleged last week that Wright was sharing her views about the vaccines while filming the Marvel superhero sequel.
Oct. 14, 2021, 1:30 AM CEST By Doha Madani and Diana Dasrath
Actor Letitia Wright denied a report that she has been speaking out against Covid-19 vaccinations during the filming of Marvel’s “Black Panther 2.”

Last week, The Hollywood Reporter alleged that Wright was sharing her views about the vaccines in Atlanta on the set of the highly anticipated superhero sequel. Wright denied the report, which cited an unnamed source, in a statement Wednesday on Instagram.

“I honestly assert that this was completely untrue,” she wrote. “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me, knows that I work incredibly hard at my craft & my main focus is always to do work that’s impactful and inspiring. That has been & will continue to be my only focus.”

Wright, who plays the character of Shuri in the Marvel universe of films, faced backlash in December when she posted a video on Twitter that made unsubstantiated claims about Covid vaccines.

The video included a long monologue by Tomi Arayomi, the founder of a Christian ministry, who questioned the contents of the vaccines but did not provide evidence for his claims.

Critics at the time characterized Wright as reckless for sharing the content, including fellow Marvel franchise star Don Cheadle. Cheadle called the video "hot garbage," adding that he would “never defend anybody posting this.”

Wright did not respond to a request for comment in December, but she tweeted in defense of herself, saying her only intention was to raise “my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies.”

The Hollywood Reporter article last week renewed the criticism of Wright, with some people bringing up the irony of her spreading anti-vaccination views when her “Black Panther” character is a respected scientist in the film franchise.

Fans have also speculated whether Wright will wear the “Black Panther” suit following the death of Chadwick Boseman, who played the title character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Shuri, princess of the fictional country of Wakanda, has taken on the superhero mantle in the comic books.

Representatives for Marvel did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Q: (L) That reminds me: A long time ago, we asked a question about how all of humanity fell or became entrapped in 3d... They said something about how DNA became modified and certain factors being canceled in the DNA. It was all being done simultaneously. It was something about light doing it. We'll have to find the exact excerpt. But the thing is that, in a certain sense, technically speaking that's almost what they're doing right now. And when you figure out that alien technology is still somewhat material, then you wonder what happened back then. Was there some kind of vaccine that they gave everybody back then?

(Artemis) I've also noticed that people who have taken vaccines think that vaccines are good. So I think vaccines make people think that vaccines are good.

(L) Well, they have to think they're good because they invest themselves in them.

(Andromeda) Yeah, they have to justify their decisions.

Oct 13, 2021,07:51am EDT Listen to article 40 minutes / Opening snip:
European travel restrictions continue to be a moving feast, with countries and regions that are considered safe, even inside the Europe/Schengen area, changing from week to week. This still means that insurance policies can become void at a moment’s notice, particularly if you are not vaccinated, so it’s still wise to double check the small print before you book.

There is still no unified criteria for travel restrictions across the bloc (or indeed into the bloc), making travel complicated and sometimes anomalous–it is still possible to circumvent bans by entering from third-party countries, as has been the case since March 2020 across the world.

And whilst the opening of the U.S. border in November will primarily affect non-US nationals, who will be allowed to enter for the first time in over 500 days, it will have a big impact on testing requirements for U.S. residents too as they fly home. As highlighted by The New York Times, passengers currently only need to take a test in the three days before departure, but they may need to take tests upon their return too.

The entire bloc is using the EU Digital Covid Certificate to allow unrestricted travel across the EU and Schengen area countries and most are using a green pass for access to public spaces, restaurants, gyms, etc. even for tourists, such as Austria and France. Foreign travelers can access these applications in most cases or the paper version will suffice, but there are still numerous ways to get caught out because of ever-changing regulations or incoming rules regarding Brexit, for instance.

One example, is the new rule in France of requiring all children over the age of 12 to show a health pass (pass sanitaire) to be allowed into cinemas and restaurants. For visitors with adolescents who are not yet vaccinated, this would require testing every three days in France, adding considerably to the hassle and cost of a holiday.

Agreed Hi_Henry - the more than suspicious immediate demise of JP I (who at the very least was deliberately stressed to death) heralding in JP II being a telling marker. My arch traditional parents never tired of saying though that Vatican II was the true end of the world in the making and it's telling that it coincided with such events as JFK's murder. The seeds planted then grew long offshoots that are only darkly flowering now. Viganò is pretty convinced that the Jesuit on the seat today is there to herald in 'the universal religion'. I think we all know what that double-speak actually means:
When the Church moved away from the Tridentine Mass I had no clue what that step meant. To this day I recall changing the missal from the Latin version to the English. Latin gave the Mass a completely different energy. Latin allowed me to go to mass in say Brazil and be able to follow with the rest. Latin was another bond within the Family of the Church. But it was eliminated.

This change didn't feel right but I was far too young to think deeper of what that move represented. But that was not enough for the "remodelers" as more "remodeling" needed doing within the church and its celebrations. In small small steps over decades they tore down the whole structure to the point where they were confident enough to set the Notre Dame de Paris on fire.


When JP II was making his theatrical visits to Latin America I sensed there was something completely off about the man. His acting skills from his days in Poland (David Yallop) did not fool me. I never believed that he was the real thing. He was an actor to the very end.

Now we have the clown Francis pushing the experimental jabs with known side effects and UNKNOWN long-term effects. Guess the church is just one small step away from showing "The Man of Light". By that time, people will be sufficiently controllable to allow them to see who was behind the curtain all along.

I just got an email from Human Resources informing me that the university has decided the EO includes them as a federal contractor. I've been given until Oct 27th to get the first shot, so as to be fully genetically modified by the EO's Dec 8th deadline.

There's the possibility of religious exemption, which provides some thin hope. If that doesn't work I will be unemployed and it will likely be the end of my career.

Oh bugger, it's coming for us all! Praying for you @psychegram

Just some random ideas -

  • Can the universities position of being a federal contractor be challenged, at least as it applies to you?
  • Can you speak to an employment lawyer to understand your rights?
  • Could you use the fact that you had covid to make your case?
  • Is it possible to find out who the other 10% are so you can combine efforts?
  • Quite extreme this one, can you transfer to a university elsewhere e.g. Texas or some other state where the political climate is such that you are unlikely to face a gene editing mandate?
I'd have faith in God or the universe to guide you through this process. They usually say God / the universe doesn't put us in situations we can't overcome. In believing this I always think that in every situation where it appears you're backed against a wall with seemingly no choices, there is always a choice and a course of action open to you that would relieve you of that situation without you having to succumb to the dictates of the devil as it were - your challenge is to spot that option and act upon it whereas the devil's challenge as it were is to make you think and believe you have no options.

Jacinda’s Fakebook Post — 30,000 Comments Expose Vax Injury and Deaths​



The prime minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern’s Fakebook post dramatically backfired. On the 26 September 2021, she posted this:

20211013_162622.png


When I looked this evening, there are 3,500 shares and …

30K Comments​

My friend had written to me and said, “You must read some of the comments”. I scanned through them, and it is clear, it has become a vaccine injury reporting forum. I have added some below. There is no way I am going through 30,000 comments, so below is a “first grab” selection. [Update: now 32,000 comments]

Kim L. Coppersmith
My Father had a heart attack one week after his first shot. He was helicoptered to Waikato in a serious condition. Admittedly he is 81 however he had had a thorough heart check six weeks previously and had been advised his heart was in excellent condition for his age. He is/was extremely active and cycled 40 kilometres 5 days a week. The heart attack was due to blood clots. He is not going to get his second shot.

Al Jonson Kim L. Coppersmith Sending much love to you and Daniel and your Dad. The lies must stop.
Julie King

One of our drivers father had heart attack 2 days ago one week after Jab. Our friend got half paralized one month later he still not feeling right
Stace Da Ace Thompson
But no one is able to tell us what might happen in a year, 5, 10 years from now can they? Only time will tell and if 90% of the country is vaccinated we should all be safe? Even the 10% who aren’t like Police , Politicians who aren’t required to?

Nimmi Valia
We should be able to make our own choice Jacinda Ardern. This vaccine is not right for everyone, as everybody is different and react differently to different things. Government needs to understand this.
I had my first one and had anaphylaxis for the first time in my life. It’s a NO from me for the 2nd one! Thank you!
Laurel Kells
Let’s talk about the deletion of the NZ Facebook group that listed everyone’s personal adverse reactions.
Suze Crawley
A good friends brother in law has died, and another friend has had a death at their work. A girl from my school days nearly passed out at Vac centre and couldn’t move for a few days and have heard of another contact who has had a Bell’s palsy turn …my immediate family have only had sore arms and tiredness. Lots of people are OK BUT alot are not, it’s very concerning
Letetia Kelly
I don’t think this is panning out the way you wanted it to Jacinda.
Molly Mahoney Mundell
Are you reading the replies Jacinda? Story after story… this vaccine is not suitable for all people. Have some respect for individual needs, stop bullying your country. Let us live freely based on whats best for us and our families, not by whats best for your reputation.
Chris Jacko Jackson
Let’s also discuss the people who are going to have to pay back the 114 billion dollars of debt that has accumulated. Only 2.5 billion on wage subsidies. 0.2% of that set aside for mental health services. How many billions are being spent on advertising/brainwashing. Our country is currently the most indebted it has ever been and the accountability falls back on the taxpayer. My great grandchildren will be paying this debt.

Brooke Manukau
Well this just went down like a barrel of lead didn’t it…. About time the truth started coming to light

Flossie Drake
My parents both developed flu like symptoms after their second vaccination shot. My Mum becoming dangerously unwell and developed pneumonia, was admitted to hospital for two weeks. Very frightening. Has been 6 weeks and she is still unwell


Sharon Alice Regan
I feel sorry for the teenagers as those are the ones they are going after…. John key said stop them from going to concerts or R&V and they will soon be lining up for the jab
This is bullying and blackmailing … it’s disgusting what a government will stoop to
Over the past two weeks it’s desperate measures on the radio and tv constantly saying you need to be vaccinated let alone having jab buses outside of KFC etc when Auckland went into level 3 … jab while you wait
People should have the right to choose, and there should be no discrimination either way

Sujean Elgar
My friend ended up in hospital on a drip couldn’t stop vomiting….she told the nurse she had just be vaccinated the day before and the nurse dismissed her and said no it wouldn’t have anything to do with vaccine and that seems to be the problem here just dismissed like that.

Chloe Mansfield
My dad now has heart problem after taking your experimemtal jab…. seems its not sooo safe and effective

Chris Jacko Jackson
I will do anything I choose, I resist the demands. If we are forced to get this injection, are we really free to choose? If I am forced, I will not go quietly, not because I’m a radical but because I was born with rights that no one has the authority to take. Don’t forget that everyone is born with these rights and they are yours to do with what you please. End of discussion.

Jac Watson
23 year old had the jab in a Friday and was dead on the Saturday with a heart attack. It’s happening soooo often. Young people shouldn’t be dying of heart attacks like this!!

Duncan Beall
My father in law spent two weeks in hospital severely unwell struggling to breathe he reacted to first jab immediately the doctors said he wasn’t going to make it. He did but it was touch and go and since then through friends we are hearing more and more cases on a daily basis who have had severe reactions. It’s distressing for us to be treated as a joke in the media either on the news or in the nzh. We are silenced as it’s so polarising and it’s nothing we have done to cause this. It’s insulting to assume we have done all our research online as I’m sure the people in the media don’t use microfiches or encyclopaedias. We are real people who know real people that have had things happen to them and these aren’t mere coincidences and we are being ridiculed and judged. This is not the NZ we knew. If you had the novavax we would be first in line to have it but with pzifer no threats of loss of freedom or friendships will twist our arm. We have seen and know too much.

Dave Baldwin
Apart from a seeing a friend watch (by video) her mother dying from blood clotting because of border restrictions I would like to talk about the adverse events I am experiencing (as are many more no doubt) . I want to tell you about the black dog that visits me every day. The overwhelming sense of hopelessness that makes suicide a very real option. The hopelessness caused firstly by the insane policies and use of faulty science that is now being followed by threats of mandated vaccinations and penalties against those that just want to make their own choices, go to work peacefully and be close to their families. Do you really think it is appropriate for Chris Hipkins to threaten that he will hunt us down to jab us and the rest of your government to instill nothing but fear? Do you not think it is time to unleash your press so that they can talk freely about what is really happening here and overseas? Do you think it is time to now say “SORRY” to the team of 5 million?

Looks like Arb Vigano gave a speech to the people gathered in Rome on 11 of Oct.


Mon Oct 11, 2021 - 2:19 pm EDT
(LifeSiteNews) — The following is a translation of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s address to the Italian People gathered in Rome and throughout Italy on Saturday.

You have gathered today in Rome, in Piazza del Popolo, and in many other squares in Italy, as hundreds of thousands of people around the world manifest their opposition to the establishment of a global tyranny. Millions of citizens of every nation, in the deafening silence of the media, have been shouting their own “No!” For months: No to pandemic madness, No to lockdowns, curfews, the imposition of vaccinations, No to health passports, to the blackmail of a totalitarian power enslaved by the elite.

Almost two years have passed since the beginning of this planetary nightmare. We entered a labyrinth step by step. At the beginning it was the masks indoors; then came the lockdowns with self-certifications; then the curfew … remember? Each time, faced with an abuse that might seem justified by the emergency, we have accepted to let ourselves be deprived of a bit of freedom. Step by step. They prevented us from going to church, leaving the house, working, going to school, visiting loved ones and even dying relatives in the hospital. Step by step. At a certain time of the evening, in our streets, we saw only the riders for the Amazon and JustEat deliveries: New victims of the Great Reset, new slaves of the System, together with many small entrepreneurs, owners of shops, bars and restaurants, forced into bankruptcy by absurd, illegitimate and counterproductive rules.

He hit a bullseye with that little detail. The same was with Enrique Iglesias's concerts thanks to APPLE Music.

Not to mention the psychological breakdown that has affected many of us, from the youngest to the oldest: some deprived of any social contact, the others confined in the RSA without treatment, condemned to die by a ministerial protocol. Step by step, we got used to the idea that a Technical-Scientific Committee could decide — so at least we were told — that the virus circulated only after 6 p.m., or that it hit standing and not-sitting patrons in bars, that it infected in churches or museums but not on commuter trains or buses full of students.

Thanks.

Regarding points above:
  • Can the universities position of being a federal contractor be challenged, at least as it applies to you?
I doubt it. This requirement does not apply to the individual source of funding (and mine is a private foundation), but to the institute as a whole. As an aside, it was darkly amusing to read in the email that the university receives $300 million per year in federal funding, and therefore they own our bodies. The very definition of chattel slavery.
  • Can you speak to an employment lawyer to understand your rights?
Maybe.
  • Could you use the fact that you had covid to make your case?
It's possible I could use that to seek a medical exemption, but it seems like a long shot.
  • Is it possible to find out who the other 10% are so you can combine efforts?
This occurred to me too. Unfortunately I've no idea where to even start. It's a big institute, so there are presumably hundreds of us, but we're scattered across a large number of departments and in the usual way in which academics are cloistered in their silos, we barely know anyone.
  • Quite extreme this one, can you transfer to a university elsewhere e.g. Texas or some other state where the political climate is such that you are unlikely to face a gene editing mandate?
My current position is not transferrable in this fashion. I'm anyhow in the process of applying for a new job, so this is a consideration; but such a position would not start until about a year from now. Luckily I've saved quite a bit over the last two years, so I can probably live off of my savings for some time if need be.

In any case, I'm not terribly worried. I'm furious that they're doing this, of course. Two days ago, when the department head sent around a heads up that this was coming (just over a day before the official announcement - he did the same thing before the lockdown), I got so angry that I was unable to continue working for the rest of the day.

However, over the last several months I've pondered this issue deeply and often, and the one thing I do know is that no matter what, I'm not getting the shot. If that means unemployment, or even the end of my career, so be it. I've long since made my peace with that possibility. This is a war, and it behooves a soldier to accept the possibility that he might become a casualty of that war, and to move forward regardless.

If it does come down to unemployment I've no real idea what happens next. Which is scary, I admit, but also somewhat thrilling.

I was doing an egg delivery in Toronto last tuesday 12/10/21 at selectfoods (Select Foods - A100% Canadian family-owned food manufacturer with over 75 years of experience in the sauce and condiment space).
At the reception they asked me to sign a paper indicating the dates I had my first and second jab. I refused to sign and told them it was illegal to ask for my medical record. They took the stock anyway but I can see a possible problem further down the road for truckers to deliver their load.
