In recent weeks, political leaders in Australia and beyond have begun to admit obvious truths that so-called ‘conspiracy theorists’ have been harping on about for months. …
1. Vaccines Don’t Prevent Transmission
Once dubbed ‘rare’ by the corporate press, [‘breakthrough infections’] are so common among the double and triple jabbed that we no longer bother using such an onerous phrase to describe them. Now, we just shrug our shoulders and carry on when the supposedly-immune catch the virus.
Many argue that the Covid injections were never designed to confer sterilising immunity as with other vaccines, but that is not what the world’s most trusted leaders told us at the beginning of the pandemic. President Joe Biden, White House Medical Advisor Anthony Fauci, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, and pharmaceutical investor Bill Gates clearly stated that by getting injected, you would neither contract nor transmit Covid.
It is now abundantly clear that, while the vaccines may prevent severe and deadly outcomes, they do little to slow the spread of the virus. This, of course, makes vaccine mandates and passports (which supposedly protect others) futile. …
2. Everyone Will Eventually Get Covid
Our leaders have known for a long time that Covid would eventually reach us all. How? For at least two reasons. The vaccines don’t prevent infection, as we have seen. Also, they have not reduced Covid’s reproduction rate (the average number of additional cases caused by an infected person) to below the necessary target of one. …
3. Hospitalisation Numbers Have Been Overstated
Covid hospitalisation figures are not what they seem. Last week [NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard] explained at a press conference:
A reasonable proportion of cases being classified as Covid hospitalisations are actually people with other reasons for admission. Heart attacks, births, falls, none of that stops just because there is Covid.
They come into hospital, they have a swab taken and it confirms Covid. This shows us it’s out in the community, but we aren’t necessarily seeing that as the primary reason for all of the admissions.
According to the Daily Mail, ‘data shows as many as 50 per cent of ‘Covid patients’ in the state’s hospitals were actually admitted for other reasons’. …
It takes commendable blind faith in talking heads to believe this was a conspiracy theory last week and a perfectly acceptable viewpoint today. …
4. Your Health is Your Responsibility
Covid disproportionately affects those who are immunocompromised, chronically ill, and overweight. It is ironic, then, that those insisting on healthy eating, vitamin supplements, exercise, and sunlight these last two years have routinely been frowned upon as encouraging ‘vaccine hesitancy’.
‘Protect your family and get vaccinated’ and ‘stay home to save lives’ have been far more popular slogans — perhaps because they require far less effort from us than the hard work of personal health.
While I remain dumbfounded and disconcerted that so few public leaders anywhere (as far as I am aware) have promoted personal health, perhaps the tide is beginning to turn. El Salvador’s government recently released an ad to that effect.
Where do people get their “news” from?
All of this to say: if your main source of news the last two years has been the corporate press [or government broadcasters], you may be shocked and even afraid of what our leaders are now telling us about Covid.
But if you have been consuming independent and conservative media and thinking critically, none of it will come as a surprise.
Not news to us.
