Polish/Canadian Pastor calls out the CCP. “I do not cooperate with the Gestapo. I do not talk to the Nazis. You came in your uniforms like thugs, that’s what you are. Brown shirts of Adolf Hitler. You are Nazi Gestapo. Communist. Fascists”
‘If Israelis are confused by the fact that their government treats them like laboratory pets, if they wonder why their freedom to travel, to socialise or even earn a living have evaporated, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla produced a genuine answer yesterday. In an interview on NBC Bourla said:
“I believe Israel has become the world’s lab right now because they are using only our vaccine at this state and they have vaccinated a very big part of their population, so we can study both economy and health indices.”
I have no issue with medical experiments involving humans if the participants are fully aware of all possible circumstances and considerations involved in their consent. This didn’t happen in Israel. By means of ‘green passports,’ the government practically threatens to penalise anyone reluctant to participate in a ‘lab’ experiment for a giant pharmaceutical company with a very problematic record.
The results of this Pfizer-Israeli experiment aren’t necessarily encouraging. Though it may be possible, as some studies suggest, that most vaccinated people have at least short-term protection from Covid-19, no one can deny the astonishing fact that in just 8 weeks of mass vaccination the total number of Covid-19 deaths in the Jewish State almost doubled from the number accumulated in the prior ten months.
Since Israel morphed into a nation of Guinea pigs, a virus that used to prey on the elderly and those with severe health issues has now changed its nature completely. After just 2 months of a ‘successful’ mass vaccination campaign, 76% of new Covid-19 cases are under 39. Only 5.5% are over 60. 40% of critical patients are under 60. The country has also detected a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases amongst pregnant women, with more than a few in critical condition. In the last few weeks, new-born Covid-19 cases saw a large 1300% spike (from 400 cases in under two-year-olds on November 20 to 5,800 in February 2021).
The evidence collected in Israel points at a close correlation between mass vaccination, cases and deaths. This correlation points at the possibility that it is the vaccinated who actually spread the virus or even a range of mutants that are responsible for the radical shift in symptoms above.
When CEO Bourla was asked by NBC whether one could infect others after receiving two doses of the vaccine, Bourla admitted:
“It is something that needs to be confirmed, and the real-world data that we are getting from Israel and other studies will help us understand this better.”
If CEO Bourla isn’t sure whether his ‘vaccine’ prevents the spreading of the disease, why is he selling it around the world? Why should any government allow this substance being used until all necessary precautions have been taken? Furthermore, in the light of the emerging concern that the vaccinated can spread the disease (which CEO Bourla doesn’t deny), what is the meaning of the ‘green passport’? I guess that such a document could be easily replaced by a ‘gullible certificate’ awarded to those who were foolish enough to turn themselves in.
But Bourla doesn’t have to wait much longer for the ‘results’ from his ‘lab.’ I can provide him with the most relevant numbers assuming that either he or anyone else in Pfizer can read basic graphs. Every country that fell into the mass-vaccination trap has seen a similar unprecedented spike in cases and death.
The following collection graphs point at the undeniable correlation between mass vaccination and an exponential surge in Covid-19 cases and deaths. The spike in cases is often detected just 2-3 days after the launch of the mass vaccination campaign.
At the time Israel vaccinated itself, it was witnessing a sharp exponential rise in morbidity and death. Palestine, literally the same land, saw its number of cases and deaths plummeting
At the time Israel vaccinated itself, it was witnessing a sharp exponential rise in morbidity and death. Palestine, literally the same land, saw its number of cases and deaths plummeting
Bourla and PM Netanyahu should make an intellectual effort and explain to us how it’s possible that in Gaza, an open-air prison and one of the most densely populated pieces of land on this planet, the numbers of Covid-19 cases are minimal and without a ‘vaccine.’
But Palestine is not alone, as the situation in Jordan is similar. While Israel saw its Covid-19 death figures breaking through the roof, Jordan’s Covid-19 deaths from mid-November onwards look like a slippery slope.
Britain went through a similar, if not identical, tragic experience. It launched a mass vaccination campaign on 7 December just to see its numbers of Covid-19 cases and deaths rising like never before.
At the time, Britain saw its NHS crumbling, while the kingdom’s neighbours that were slow to make a decision on vaccination saw their Covid-19 numbers dropping rapidly.
I am obviously not the only one who sees that something went dramatically wrong in Israel. A group of dissenting researchers who looked into the numbers involved with the current Pfizer Israeli experiment published a detailed study two week ago. “We conclude” they wrote, “that the Pfizer vaccines, for the elderly, killed during the 5-week vaccination period about 40 times more people than the disease itself would have killed, and about 260 times more people than the disease among the younger age class.”
Based on the Pfizer/Israeli ‘laboratory’ experiment, I drew the following sarcastic conclusion: If you catch coronavirus you may die, but if you follow the Pfizer path, not only do you have a 95% chance to survive on top of the 99.98% provided by Covid-19, you may also kill some other people on the way.’https://truth11.com/2021/02/28/hot-off-the-press-pfizer-ceo-albert-bourla-admits-israel-is-the-worlds-lab/
Leftist Biden/Harris might be in the WH but the Triune God is still in control but that’s not to say what this anti-Christian administration may do to those who claim Christ! Here’s the testimony of one who knows what haters of Christ will do to lovers of Christ Jesus.
‘Richard Wurmbrand (1909 – 2001) was born in 1909 in Bucharist in the country of Romania. He was the youngest of four boys born in a Jewish family. He lived with his family in Istanbul for a short time. When he was 9, his father died and the Wurmbrands returned to Romania when he was 15.
He was sent to study Marxism in Moscow. When he returned, he was already a Comintern Agent. A Comintern Agent was a member of the Communist International Organisation which intended to fight:
” …… by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international Bouregiosie and for the creation of an international Soviet republic as a transition stage to the complete abolition of the State.” (M15 History)
Like other Romanian Communists, he was arrested and released several times.
He married Sabina Oster on 26th October 1936. Wurmbrand and his wife went to live in an isolated village high in the mountains of Romania. But, as an athiest there was no peace to be found in his heart. So one day, when his heart was in a state of turmoil he cried out:
“God, if perchance you exist, it is Your duty to reveal yourself to me.”
Flames of Love
Shorthly after he prayed that prayer, he met a German carpenter in his village who gave him a Bible. The carpenter and his wife had been praying earnestly that God would bring a Jew to his village, because the carpenter wanted to bring a Jew to Christ, because Jesus was a Jew. So the carpenter gave him a Bible to read. Wurmbrand said, when he opened that Bible he could not stop weeping. He had read the Bible before but it had meant nothing to him. This time when he opened the Bible he could barely read it because of the copious amount of tears that filled his eyes. Sometime later he found out the carpenter and his wife had been praying earnestly for him. Wurnbrand said that every word that he read were like flames of love burning in his heart. He realized for the first ime in his life that there was a God of love who loved him, even though he had been living a bad life and had nurtured a hated towards the concept of a ‘loving’ God.
The Power of Intercessory Prayer
But now for the first time he knew that Jesus had suffered at the cross of Calvary for his sins and he was loved and accepted of God. Richard and his wife became believers in Jesus the Messiah. All the hatred that he had formerly held toward God was washed away under the blood of Christ and Richard and his wife Sabrina were born of the Spirit. That is the power of intercessory prayer!
Richard prepared himself for the ministry. He was ordained as an Anglican minister in 1938 at the start of world war 2. Both Richard and his wife were arrested several times. They were beaten and hauled before a Nazi court. They suffered under the Nazi regime throughout world war 2. But Richard said, it was only a taste of what was to come.
Russian Troups Enter Romania
Towards the end of world war 2, Richard Wurmbrand became a Lutheran and he pastored a Lutheran church in Romania. But, the same year, 1 million Russian troups entered and occupied the entire territory of Romania.
Within a very short space of time the Communists took over Romania. The reign of terror began. Out of fear 4,000 priests, pastors & ministers became Communists overnight. They confessed their allegience and loyalty to the new Communist Government because they all feared for their survival.
Harsh persecutions of any enemies of the Communist government started with the Soviet occupation in 1945. The Soviet army behaved as an occupation force (although theoretically it was an ally against Nazi Germany), and could arrest virtually anyone at will. Shortly after Soviet occupation, ethnic Germans (who were Romanian citizens and had been living as a community in Romania for 800 years) were deported to the Donbas coal mines. Despite the King’s protest, who pointed out that this was against international law, an estimated 70,000 men and women were forced to leave their homes, starting in January 1945, before the war had even ended. They were loaded in cattle cars and put to work in the Soviet mines for up to ten years as “reparations”, where about one in five died from disease, accidents and malnutrition.
Map locating areas of anti-communist armed resistance between 1948 and 1960 (red circles) on the physical map of Romania.
Once the Communist government became more entrenched, the number of arrests increased. All strata of society were involved, but particularly targeted were the pre-war elites, such as intellectuals, clerics, teachers, former politicians (even if they had left-leaning views) and anybody who could potentially form the nucleus of anti-Communist resistance. The existing prisons were filled with political prisoners, and a new system of forced labor camps and prisons was created, modeled after the Soviet Gulag. Some of the most notorious prisons included Sighet, Gherla, Piteşti and Aiud, and forced labor camps were set up at lead mines and in the Danube Delta.
Richard and his wife knew that Christianity and Communism were totally opposed to each other. They knew that a true follower of Christ cannot compromise. So they created an “Underground Church” movement to preach the pure gospel of Christ and to reach out to the unsaved people of Romania and secondly to reach out secretly to the Russian soldiers. They secretly printed thousands of Bibles and Christian literature and distributed it to the Russian soldiers. Many of the Russian soldiers were convicted and they gave their life to Christ.
So the underground church grew. But, in 1948 the Secret Police arrested Wurmbrand and he was placed in solitary confinement for 3 years. He was then transferred to a group cell for the next five years. Whilst in prison he continued to win the other prisoners to Christ. After 8 years in prison he was released and he immediately resumed his work with the undergound church. A few years later, 1959, he was arrested again and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. However, after spending 5 years in prison an organisation called the Christian Alliance negotiated with the Communist Government and they managed to secure his release for a fee of $10,000. They quickly got Richard Wurmbrand out of Romania and took him to England, then to the USA.
The Scars and the Wounds
In 1966, Richard was called to Washington DC to give his testimony before the United States Senate. He took off his shirt to show the Senate the scars and the wounds that he received whilst he served time in prison under the Communist Government in Romania.
The newspapers throughout the USA, Europe and Asia carried his story all across the world. Christian leaders called him the “Voice of the Underground Church.”
In 1967, with a $100 old typewriter and 500 names and addresses, Richard Wurmbrand published the first issue of THE VOICE OF THE MARTYRS newsletter. This newsletter was dedicated to communicating the testimonies and trails facing our brothers and sisters in restricted nations worldwide. Richard wrote:
“The message I bring from the Underground Church is:
“Don’t abandon us!”
“Don’t forget us!”
“Don’t write us off!”
“Give us the tools we need! We will pay the price for using them!”
“This is the message I have been charged to deliver to the free church.”
Richard Wurmbrand and his wife travelled throughout the world to establish a network of over 30 offices. Their primary aim was to call Christians to shoulder their responsibility and to demonstrate the real substance of their faith by supporting their brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted in heathen lands.
The VOICE OF THE MARTYRS newsletter continues to inform, and lead to action, Christians throughout the free world of the plight of those who suffer for their faith in Jesus Christ. Throughout their network of offices around the world, the newsletter is published in over 30 different languages. To this cause, VOICE OF THE MARTYRS presses on, serving in nearly 40 countries around the world where our brothers and sisters are systematically persecuted.
The writer of the Book of Hebrews brings a convicting word to the Christian church:
” Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them that suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.” (Hebrews 13:3)
We have a responsibility to those who suffer for their faith in Christ.
Today, there is an estimated 200 million Christians in heathen nations who are suffering persecution for their faith in Christ.’https://www.christianlifeministries.com.au/pioneers/richard-wurmbrand/
If you only read one article today from this blog this just might be the one to read. The Left is so hypocritical one is amazed how they continue to show their face in public BUT that’s the Left!
‘There are some things you just can’t make up.
During Wednesday’s debate on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives over the impeachment of President Donald Trump, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) referenced a quote from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who, in 2018, called for “uprisings all over the country.”
Gohmert’s intention was to highlight the double standard that exists between conservatives and progressives.
“Here’s a quote: ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more — why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be,’” Gohmert said, referencing words from Pelosi. “Or: ‘Sadly, the domestic enemies of our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with their allies in Congress.’ We are called ‘enemies’ of the state. Those were all quotes from our speaker.”
“Now, on our side, we didn’t take those to be impeachable, because we didn’t believe she surely meant that,” continued the Texas lawmaker. “But by the Democrats taking this action, you’re telling me, ‘No, when we say those, we actually mean to incite violence.’ That’s what this action is saying.”
Like clockwork, as Fox News documented, many in the media quickly lended credibility to Gohmert’s claim.
CNN analyst Asha Rangappa rebuked Gohmert for “encouraging MORE uprisings,” Law & Crime columnist Elura Nanos tweeted the Republican’s testimony “should be used to immediately expel him.” In addition, Vox editor Laura McGann, Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake, and Politico managing editor Blake Hounshell all wrongly attributed Pelosi’s words to Gohmert, suggesting he was calling for “uprisings” ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.
Hounshell and Blake later deleted their tweets.
As for Pelosi, she made the comment in reference to the backlash Trump faced in the summer of 2018 for his administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. The second remark — about the “domestic enemies of our voting system” — came in August 2020, when the House speaker was rebuking Republicans for voicing concerns about mass mail-in voting in the presidential election.
In October of last year, now-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris faced criticism for her comments to “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. Speaking of the Black Lives Matter protests, many of which devolved into violent riots last summer, Harris said: “They’re not going to stop. They’re not. This is a movement. I’m telling you. They’re not going to stop and, everyone, beware. Because they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they are not going to stop after Election Day. And everyone should take note of that on both levels: That they’re not going to let up. And they should not, and we should not.”
It’s worth noting Harris did condemn violence one time, in late August. She said: “We must always defend peaceful protest and peaceful protesters,” adding, “We should not confuse them with those looting and committing acts of violence.”
We would, of course, be remiss if we didn’t mention the now-infamous moment on CNN in August, when national correspondent Omar Jimenez stood in front of a building engulfed in flames in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he claimed the protests had been “largely peaceful.” The network’s chyron at the bottom of the screen read: “Fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting.”
And on MSNBC, anchor Ali Velshi — standing just yards away from the blazing scene — explained: “I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly, but fires have been started…”
On Wednesday, Democrats — joined by 10 Republicans — voted to impeach Trump following a deadly riot that broke out in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The violent melee has resulted in six deaths, including those of two officers with the Capitol Police.
Lawmakers have argued Trump’s rhetoric about what he believes to be a “stolen election” incited the violence that unfolded in Washington, D.C.
The president, it should be noted, has condemned the violence. In a brief address from the Oval Office on Wednesday night, Trump said he “unequivocally condemn[s] the violence that we saw last week.”
“Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement,” he said. “Making America Great Again has always been about defending rule of law, supporting the men and women of law enforcement and upholding our nation’s most sacred traditions and values. Mob violence goes against everything I believe in and everything our movement stands for.”
“No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence,” the president continued. “No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever harass their fellow American. If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement — you’re attacking it and you’re attacking our country.”https://www.faithwire.com/2021/01/14/journalists-accidentally-reveal-lefts-double-standard-over-inciting-violence/?utm_source=FWNL
Communism has always sought to rewrite history to fit their agenda. Now, ‘Elijah Schaffer, National Reporter at The Blaze, who is currently facing scrutiny from Left-wing media outlets for entering the Capitol Jan. 6 to report on the protest, says big tech is trying to “rewrite history” in the aftermath of the riot, creating an unstable society that will likely lead to more civil unrest.
“I really am afraid for our country and for these tech companies who are creating a society that is meant to implode, and I would say I am starting to believe that this is by design…This is a political opportunity to hold power,” said Schaffer on The Foreign Desk with Lisa Daftari podcast Tuesday.
Schaffer does not believe big tech banned President Donald Trump because they believe he was responsible for the riots but believes censorship is being used as “retribution for big tech companies in the ruling class, now as we know them, to completely crush political opposition going forward and to rewrite history.”
While Schaffer does not condone the actions taken at the Capitol, he expressed frustration at the hypocrisy of the Democrat party for ostracizing Trump-supporters for years, telling them “they were less valuable, sub-human, their votes didn’t matter, they were racist, sexist.”
Schaffer believes Democrat lawmakers set the precedent for the Capitol breach through failed policies and double standards implemented in the midst of Black Lives Matter riots throughout the country.
“The failed policies are what led to this. When you don’t punish rioters for 10 months, and you let them off the hook and you create a national sentiment that people can break into public buildings, can occupy them, can riot, and be let go, even if they’re arrested the district attorneys will let them go, you are enabling people who might have previously never thought of doing these things to feel like they’re ok to do them,” said Schaffer.
“When you dehumanize and ostracize people until they feel like they have no power, they often use violence as a last resort,” which Schaffer points out is the exact reasoning used to understand why many BLM protests turned violent.
Schaffer has been regularly covering civil unrest and riots for 10 months, sometimes covering three riots in one week but is receiving major backlash from the Left for entering the Capitol to cover the riot, despite law enforcement allowing him entrance with his press pass.
“A lot of publications have smeared me with being a racist or being an extremist, because I’ve done the job they were supposed to do,” said Schaffer.
“They are trying to get me imprisoned for 10 years as many of these activists have stated online…They will not rest until I am locked up for a decade, and that shows you what kind of political fight we’re up against that just recording from the inside creates an opportunity for your opposition. They’re not happy with just ruining your financial future, your social reputation, they want to see you as a political prisoner because you were doing your job.”’https://www.foreigndesknews.com/trending/reporter-big-tech-is-trying-to-rewrite-history-in-wake-of-capitol-riot/
Yesterday, it seemed like it took FOREVER, to get on Gab and today, I haven’t been able to get on Parler so me thinks the purge just may have begun. The following article says ‘It is done. The Dark Lord has been vanquished. His threatening aura has been purged from Twitter, along with many of his foul minions. Jack Dorsey knows that in order to keep…well, order, we must rid our society of undesirables. Remove them, like stinking rats from the bowels of our social media vessels. Exterminate their toxic opinions from our decent and sacred dwellings. Eradicate their heinous viewpoints from our virtuous temples. We have no time for Nazi-loving fascists in a free and equal world.
Donald Trump’s army of MAGA drones launched an attack on the Capitol on Wednesday. An attack which left the world reeling from several hours of moderate destruction and petty theft, along with the thousands of problematic memes they caused in their wake. The predictable comparison to BLM’s several months of peaceful riots and benevolent lootings last summer by the right-wing press could not be more of an insult. Did the BLM protests cause deaths? Well, yes several…but they were most probably justified because as MLK once said (must check this before submitting) you can’t make an omelette (fair and just society) without breaking a few eggs (setting fire to riot cops), and my goodness how right he was.
What strikes me about the whole situation was that the MAGA rioters managed, with little difficulty, to gain access to the Capitol and were able to walk around freely with no consequence whatsoever (apart from a woman being shot and killed, some other people dying and a multitude of arrests and ongoing investigations). I mean, this is the absolute epitome of white privilege. If BLM’s nonviolent protesters had attempted to take the Capitol with their peaceful ‘KILL ALL COPS’ signs, I am 100 percent certain they would have been brutally slaughtered before they were so much as able to righteously coerce them into taking the knee as they did in Portland. And Florida. And New York. And Minneapolis. And Los Angeles. And Philadelphia. And North Carolina. And Kentucky. And Atlanta. The disparity between the way these two groups are treated by the police due to the color of their skin is heartbreakingly depressing to witness.
Yes. Trump’s fascists were practically invited into the Capitol and offered tea and cake. Yet all the BLM protesters were ‘allowed’ to achieve last summer was several months’ worth of looting, burning and vandalism, along with the acquisition of six entire city blocks for the duration of three weeks. White privilege is out of control. But thankfully, not on social media it isn’t.
Twitter and Facebook (Praise be to Them), and Google and Apple have joined forces, like Marvel’s Avengers, to bravely eliminate the bad guys in our midst. Standing strong against the power-hungry capitalistic oligarchs, they have pooled their technical capabilities to purge the digital world of any trace of authoritarian wrongthink. Facing down and destroying any potential alternatives to their platforms before they have the chance to gather strength. Parler (an evil nest of Nazi conspirators) has had its app pulled from the Google Play store. Because why would we need any alternatives? The only people who would even consider leaving Twitter or Facebook (Praise be to Them) are those who secretly harbor problematic thoughts.
Hopefully, our noble Big Tech Oligarchy will continue to wheedle out the undesirables and prevent them from infecting the rest of us with their unpleasantness. It’s reassuring how much power and control this handful of companies have over our everyday lives. It makes me feel safe, and I have every confidence that this situation could never backfire. The more control they have the better it is for us all. Blessings be forever upon our benevolent Silicon Giant Overlords. Long may they reign.’https://spectator.com.au/2021/01/praise-be-to-our-benevolent-big-tech-overlords/
The China virus has changed the free world. Lockdowns, secrecy and snitching on others has been prominent features of this supposed pandemic. Here in Australia ‘There is no justification for the uniquely high-level of secrecy the Australian government has maintained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. A certain level of government secrecy is to be expected if you are dealing with national security or the military, but not during a public health emergency.
The response to coronavirus has impacted every aspect of our lives and liberties, and Australians have been compliant and rewarded our leaders with high approval ratings.
But, as the first interim report from the Senate select committee into the Australian Government’s handling of COVID-19 has found, Australians’ goodwill has been met with an alarming lack of transparency.
For example, out of the hundreds of meetings held by our key health body, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee, statements relating to just 65 meetings were made public.
And, despite repeated requests from the Senate committee, the government has refused to release information; such as meeting minutes, and dates on when strategic decisions were taken.
The committee’s recommendation that all past and future minutes of AHPPC meetings be released is sound — and the minimum that should be required.
However, they should also justify why they decided to keep so much information hidden behind the ‘Top Secret’ stamp.
As one expert witness to the committee said: “In relation to public health measures, the default position should be that all of these conditions and deliberations are made public.”
This is the standard adopted in other parts of the world. New Zealand released the modelling used to make their decisions early in the pandemic, and the UK publishes minutes and supporting documentation for each meeting of its Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies.
The concerning lack of government transparency was something highlighted in my analysis of Australia’s response to COVID-19.
Not only does the secrecy disrespect the ability of Australians to understand complicated information; it also limits the opportunities to canvas a range of solutions.
Australia took the unusual step of suspending parliament and limiting pandemic decision–making to a small group. This prevented our elected representatives from debating the strategy adopted to combat COVID-19. And keeping most of the health advice secret further hinders the ability to debate and scrutinise the government’s response.
But, unfortunately, since we first heard about COVID-19, debating the response to the virus has been discouraged.
Social media companies quickly appointed themselves the arbiters of scientific truth, with YouTube introducing a policy to ban any ‘misinformation’ about COVID-19. Although such a policy is superficially appealing, there are unintended consequences and overreach — as with all censorship.
Popular, mainstream British talkRADIO had their YouTube channel taken down earlier this week for violating the video platform’s COVID policy. The video in question was a debate between host Julia Hartley-Brewer and a former president of the National Education Union about school closures.
As is often the case after social media cancellations, their channel was reinstated after a backlash. But YouTube has also shut down accounts and taken down videos from prominent health experts such as Professor Karol Sikora, a former WHO adviser, and current Dean of the University of Buckingham’s medical school.
Many will support these moves and claim taking down ‘misinformation’ is necessary to save lives.
This is a furphy.
Firstly, no one should want a YouTube moderator to decide what is and is not scientific truth. Despite calls to follow ‘The Science’ of the pandemic, information is always changing. As the NSW health minister says in nearly every single press conference: we are learning more about this virus all the time and we will adapt our strategy as we receive new information.
This is the right attitude. To delete so–called misinformation because it does not conform to ‘The Science’ is shutting down scientific debate and preventing the exploration of ideas.
Secondly, like most big events, the pandemic is surrounded by no shortage of conspiracy theories. If information is taken down, or not released, people quite rightly ask why. And if the question is not satisfactorily answered, the silence can prompt opportunists to fill in the blanks.
Whatever your thoughts on how governments around the world have handled the pandemic, whether you believe lockdowns are appropriate, or that there has been government overreach, dissenting voices should be allowed to speak.
Questioning the policy of lockdowns or any other COVID suppression or elimination strategy is not a threat.
However, there is a threat in keeping information secret and branding anyone who questions ‘The Science’ of the pandemic a dangerous heretic.
We have sacrificed a lot in the name of COVID. Let us not give up on our open democracy and free inquiry as well.’https://spectator.com.au/2021/01/why-the-pandemic-secrecy-and-censorship/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=FLAT%20%202020011%20%20AL&utm_content=FLAT%20%202020011%20%20AL+CID_b0b9c0a38f4aaf348ef1cd7e819be9e2&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=Monica%20Wilkie
Dennis Prager explains what is occurring today in America and the West with what occurred in Nazi Germany. He writes ‘As my listeners and readers can hopefully attest, I have been on a lifelong quest to understand human nature and human behavior. I am sad to report that I have learned more in the last few years, particularly in 2020, than in any equivalent period of time.
One of the biggest revelations concerns a question that has always plagued me: How does one explain the “good German,” the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime? The same question could be asked about the average Frenchman during the Vichy era, the average Russian under Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Leonid Brezhnev and their successors, and the millions of others who did nothing to help their fellow citizens under oppressive dictatorships.
These past few years have taught me not to so quickly judge the quiet German, Russian, etc. Of course, I still judge Germans who helped the Nazis and Germans who in any way hurt Jews. But the Germans who did nothing? Not so fast.
What has changed my thinking has been watching what is happening in America (and Canada and Australia and elsewhere, for that matter).
The ease with which tens of millions of Americans have accepted irrational, unconstitutional and unprecedented police state-type restrictions on their freedoms, including even the freedom to make a living, has been, to understate the case, sobering.
The same holds true for the acceptance by most Americans of the rampant censorship on Twitter and all other major social media platforms. Even physicians and other scientists are deprived of freedom of speech if, for example, they offer scientific support for hydroxychloroquine along with zinc to treat COVID-19 in the early stages. Board-certified physician Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who has saved hundreds of COVID-19 patients from suffering and/or death, has been banned from Twitter for publicizing his lifesaving hydroxychloroquine and zinc protocol.
Half of America, the non-left half, is afraid to speak their minds at virtually every university, movie studio and large corporation — indeed, at virtually every place of work. Professors who say anything that offends the left fear being ostracized if they have tenure and being fired if they do not. People are socially ostracized, publicly shamed and/or fired for differing with Black Lives Matter, as America-hating and white-hating a group as has ever existed. And few Americans speak up. On the contrary, when BLM protestors demand that diners outside of restaurants raise their fists to show their support of BLM, nearly every diner does.
So, then, who are we to condemn the average German who faced the Gestapo if he didn’t salute Hitler or the average Russian who faced the NKVD (the secret police and intelligence agency that preceded the KGB) if he didn’t demonstrate sufficient enthusiasm for Stalin? Americans face the left’s cancel culture, but not left-wing secret police or reeducation camps. (At least not yet — I have little doubt the left would send outspoken conservatives to reeducation camps if they could.)
I have come to understand the average German living under Nazism and the average Russian living under communism for another reason: the power of the media to brainwash.
As a student of totalitarianism since my graduate studies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University’s School of International Affairs (as it was then known), I have always believed that only in a dictatorship could a society be brainwashed. I was wrong. I now understand that mass brainwashing can take place in a nominally free society. The incessant left-wing drumbeat of The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and almost every other major newspaper, plus The Atlantic, The New Yorker, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, all of Hollywood and almost every school from kindergarten through graduate school, has brainwashed at least half of America every bit as effectively as the German, Soviet and Chinese communist press did (and in the latter case, still does). That thousands of schools will teach the lie that is the New York Times’ “1619 Project” is one of countless examples.
Prior to the lockdowns, I flew almost every week of the year, so I was approached by people who recognized me on a regular basis. Increasingly, I noticed that people would look around to see if anyone was within earshot and then tell me in almost a whisper: “I support Trump” or, “I’m a conservative.” The last time people looked around and whispered things to me was when I used to visit the Soviet Union.
In Quebec this past weekend, as one can see on a viral video, a family was fined and members arrested because six — yes, six — people gathered to celebrate the new year. A neighbor snitched on them, and the celebrants were duly arrested. The Quebec government lauded the snitches and asked for more public “collaboration.”
Snitches are likewise lauded and encouraged in some Democrat-run states and cities in America (Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in March: “Snitches get rewards”) and by left-wing governments in Australia. Plenty of Americans, Canadians and Australians are only too happy to snitch on people who refuse to lock down their lives.
All this is taking place without concentration camps, without a Gestapo, without a KGB and without Maoist reeducation camps.
That’s why I no longer judge the average German as easily as I used to. Apathy in the face of tyranny turns out not to be a German or Russian characteristic. I just never thought it could happen in America.’https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2021/01/05/i-now-better-understand-the-good-german-n2582563
One would have to be a monk not to see China on the rise in the West. Now, ‘A deep sense of malaise seems to have settled over America. Our politicians, from Biden at the top to lowly state-level bureaucrats like Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensberger, are corrupt and sneer at us plebes for pointing to their corruption as evidence that they’re not our betters and that China owns America and its politicians. The media lies to us. The tech companies censor us and stop the free flow of information. Our businesses aren’t what they used to be and our “culture,” if it can even be called that anymore, is an amalgamation of poorly made reruns and vulgar songs.
From where do those troubles stem? Well, on one level, it’s simply that, thanks to Covid, we’ve had to put up with even more government incompetence than usual. Every level of American life, from the business world to dinner inside your own home, has been intruded upon by hypocritical agents of the state. Unsurprisingly, they’ve done a poor job of “helping out” and have instead just made life worse and harder for everyone.
But that’s not the only reason life in America seems to be getting worse. It’s not just that the government is incompetent. That is, like Senator Graham’s recent betrayal of conservatism, disappointing but not unsurprising.
The bitter reason things in America seem to be going downhill so quickly and frightfully is that America isn’t owned by Americans anymore. Instead, America is owned by China, and we’re finally starting to feel the talons of the Chinese dragon sink into us.
Each of the issues mentioned above, from government corruption to media lies, relates to the fact that China owns America. In this article, I’ll explain why that’s the case and why it is making Americans worse off.’ For the entire article go to https://genzconservative.com/china-owns-america/?amp=1
If you thought Communism died when the Berlin Wall came down you are wrong! Communism is well and alive around the world today! The Australian state of Victoria is a FAR FAR LEFT Leaning state government and therefore it isn’t a real surprise that ‘Four members of three competing communist groups have won election to Melbourne councils in the recent local elections.
Three of those were re-elected, with Stephen Jolly and Brigid O’Brien (both formally of the Socialist Party and the Victorian Socialists) winning seats on Yarra Council with 26.07% and 15.13% of the vote respectively. Sue Bolton a veteran Marxist of many decades standing and one of the last leaders of the faltering Socialist Alliance was also re-elected to the City of Moreland Council for a third term with only 12.1% of the vote. Whilst these percentages may seem ludicrously low, the voting systems for many inner city Melbourne councils are deliberately designed to allow candidates to win with the approval of only small slivers of the electorate.
But one successful communist candidate was a newcomer, and by that I mean a newcomer only in the realm of being a new elected councillor, because in the realm of Australian communism Jorge Jorquera is anything but new. Jorge, representing the Socialist Alternative front group “Victorian Socialists” won a seat on Maribyrnong council after two recounts and an astoundingly low 8.76% of the vote. Thus becoming the first ever communist elected to a council in Melbourne’s Western suburbs.
Jorge has an extremely long record as a Marxist activist, as the child of Marxists who fled the Pinochet government in Chile he was likely a communist from his cradle. He began his adult Marxist activism in the mid 1980s and by 1991 he was not only an activist with the Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) but was the Melbourne organiser for their youth group “Resistance”.
In 1992 in his capacity as Resistance organiser Jorge was contacted by both the Australian solicitor general and the Department of Health, Housing and Community Services in relation to the distribution of 5000 copies of a sexually explicit DSP authored pamphlet “Fantastic Sex Facts” to underage schoolchildren. The main culprit involved in this targeting of underage children was Zanny Beg, a fellow Democratic Socialist party activist who would go on to found “Community Action Against Homophobia” to campaign for the lowering of the homosexual age of consent in NSW.
What delightful people.
Jorge was particularly interested in the DSP due to that group’s interest in supporting Latin American communist dictators like Fidel Castro. In the late 80s and early 90s the DSP had gradually moved away from its roots in Trotskyist-style communism and had moved towards an ideology closer to “anything that still vaguely resembles communism is good”. Naturally the DSP’s Trotskyist rivals in the International Socialists (a 1995 split of which eventually became the Socialist Alternative) made much mockery of this evolution, referring to the DSP as “Castroite” for much of the nineties.
While this might have been embarrassing for the older activists in the DSP who had been bleating about Trotsky since the late 60s, it suited Jorge down to the ground. Jorge’s passion at that time (and main activity over the course of the last thirty years) has been an unwavering, steadfast and fanatical fanboy level of support for every communist or Marxist influenced regime in Latin America. When Fidel Castro finally kicked the bucket and went to join his fellow communists in hell, Jorge described the dead dictator as “genuinely heroic” and “inspiring to millions”.
But Jorge has saved perhaps his greatest love for the regime of former Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez. Jorge even helped set up communist front groups with names like “Committees in Solidarity with Latin America and the Caribbean” and the “Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network” to host events here in Australia for ambassadors and other regime officials.
The DSP became the Socialist Alliance in 2001 to try and cash in on the supposed electoral discontent of the working class with capitalism. When a few years later the legions of hidden proletariat votes had failed to materialise a faction inside the Alliance began to argue that the problem was that they had become too moderate and needed to get back to more hardline “Leninist” communism. Jorge was a part of this group. When this “Leninist faction” was expelled in 2008 for being continually annoying he and others (including Kevin Rudd’s nephew) went on to found the “Revolutionary Socialist Party” (RSP). The RSP was a complete failure largely due to the fact that most of its members were such old communists that they kept dying or having to be hospitalised. Eventually in 2012 the more youthful remnants of the RSP begged to be allowed to merge with Socialist Alternative.
Jorge has long been involved in the education sector having formerly been a staff member at Victoria Uni and currently being employed as a Curriculum Advisor at Keypath Education Australia. In 2007 Jorge joined together with Jo Williams (of Victoria University and Socialist Alternative) and Tracey Ollis (of Deakin University school of Education) to form the “Popular Education Network Australia” (PENA). In their own words the aim of PENA was to bring together “fellow travellers” working within the education system to better spread the influence and ideas of Brazilian education theorist Paulo Freire among Australian educators.
Freire argued in his most important work “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” that the purpose of the teacher was not simply to impart knowledge but to also subliminally indoctrinate children in Marxist theory.
These are the people you pay through your taxes to teach your kids’ teachers. And if you’re unfortunate enough to live in Maribyrnong council one of them is now sucking parasitically at your rates.
The typical response from most on the right to hearing about another communist councillor being elected is complacency. “It’s only a council seat” they say. Well it was only one council seat when Stephen Jolly won in Yarra in 2004, now it’s half a dozen Australia wide. With just one seat Jolly was able to lead a campaign to block the billion dollar East-West link project and missed out on a Victorian upper house seat at the last state poll by the slimmest of margins. Ignoring these extremists doesn’t make them go away.
Every year the extreme left in Australia gets more organised and its activists wriggle deeper inside the institutions that make up the bones of our society. The time to start paying attention to these communists is now, before it’s too late.’https://gab.com/theunshackled?mc_cid=da1fdd19dc&mc_eid=6e30632a8a
