No epidemic in NZ prior to 2020, now Vaxx Acquired Immuno-Deficiency (VAIDs) and Prion diseases are a growing epidemic

By Lyndesy Symonds

What is just ‘not in the tank’ is task and purpose – which he has achieved for his political masters.

The 2020 Global Pandemic they called the ‘Deadly SARS-MERS Cov-2, nouvelle Corona Virus’ was the greatest Hoax of all time – it had a survival rate of 99.9%. It was so deadly that you had to have a PCR test to know you had it. This Bull Shit has now circled the drain and taken the plunge.

Ardern exits politics and NZ is cheering. Ardern is the worst PM since Helen Clarke, but the WEF disciple has done untold damage to the population

Then there was the 2021 vaxx roll-out as the Global Solution to the Global Pandemic. Jacinda ‘your gov’t is your single source of truth’ Ardern pumped that CoVID Narrative for all it was worth. He locked down the entire NZ population over one positive CoVID case and did a hard vaxx roll-out, coercing the NZ population into injection with a bio-tech spike protein / bioweapon. Creation of a social caste system based on vaxx status stands as one of his enduring achievements.

Whereas prior to 2020 there was no epidemic in NZ, now Vaxx Acquired Immuno-Deficiency (VAIDs) and Prion disease/s are a growing epidemic. The Health Crisis of the Vaxx [with hundreds of pages of adversities / side effects] is the new normal and it is coming not going. SIDS now covers not just vaxxed infants but children, teens and adults in prime of life. The Big Jew msmedia whorejobs are working up a sweat convincing us that it is perfectly normal for teenage boys playing sport to have heart attacks and strokes. It is just another football injury.

The WEF 2023, however, is moving past all that. They have not even acknowledged this trail of destruction and ongoing genocide their globalist assets in government [ like Jacinda and ScoMo ] were tasked with initiating. The WEF is now onto Green Tech, Green Transformation, Africanization of Europe, permanent climate lockdowns and the role of smart cities in the control grid they are constructing through many agencies. [ Russia is a world leader here in biometrics and central bank digital currecy] CoVID is just so yesterday.

The WEF is moving on. And now so must Jacinda. He has been excellent value for getting NZ onto the United [Communist] Nations operating platform for Agenda 2030. Now he been given his stage direction – exit.

For the Kiwis who will miss Jacinda and that smirk: Never Fear, NZ will get a new WEFie before you know it.

Aussie Cossack asks ASIO why they are not monitoring the political parties which have seriously harmed the people with Covid vaxx

Aussie Cossack has sought asylum in the Russian Embassy. His lawyer Mark Davis said “I can confirm that Mr Boikov is currently at the Russian consulate in Sydney, that he is seeking consular assistance and is considering seeking refuge at the consulate, and then exploring his options thereafter,” Mr Davis told News Corp.

NSW Police are having difficulties locating Cossack but if they rang the Russian Consulate in Sydney or looked at Facebook they might find him.

NSW Police urged anyone who knew where he was to call Crime Stoppers.

“Officers from Suburbs Police Area Command have commenced inquiries in relation to the whereabouts of a 32-year-old man from Drummoyne wanted on an outstanding revocation of parole warrant,” a spokesperson said.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade have been contacted for comment.

Liberal, Labor duopoly ensuring oldies get their fourth shot before they die from the third

By Jim O’Toole, Townsville Bureau

The stupidity of the Liberal National Party knows no bounds when it comes to the Covid scam and their combined ignorance of advice by highly qualified medical specialists speaking out against mRNA gene therapy leaves voters in no doubt why the city-centric party lost office.

The Liberal Party machine posthumously conducted an expensive internal examination of why they lost this year’s election yet if they had asked Joe Blow on the street he would have told them for nothing that deposed PM Scott Morrison and Health Minister Greg Hunt did the job for them with the Covid mandates, lockdowns, job losses and vaxx victims.

Both are straight out of the World Economic Forum camp and had CEO Klaus Schwab’s world domination plans scrawled all over them during their term in office.

While medicos denounce the Covid scam in a creeping crescendo the dumber than dumb Labor, Liberals and Nationals are unable to fathom why 102 already vaccinated aged care residents in the week before Christmas died of ‘Çovid’ infections.

As the inventor of mRNA technology Dr Robert Malone has stated many times for all to discover, Covid deaths are being caused by mRNA shots. One, two or three doses of the deadly Pfizer toxin which the company was forced to admit, has an efficacy of about 2 per cent.

There is no Covid virus. It has never been isolated in human tissue anywhere in the world and the PCR test was denounced as a fraud by its inventor biochemist the late Kary Mullis and manufacturer CDC and taken off the market in November.

Then along comes the unintelligent Coalition spokeswoman for Aged Care, Anne Ruston, who wants to give the poor oldies a fourth dose of deadly vaxx to kill them even more quickly it seems.

The political charlatans of the Liberal and Labor duopoly along with Klaus Schwab should be incarcerated as soon as possible before they do any more damage to the population, albeit much is already done.

Medical experts have warned the deaths are just beginning while the mRNA shots in the next five years, combined with remedy Remdesivir as Pfizer and Moderna should know, would wipe out or seriously maim at least a predicted 90 per cent of vaxx victims.

Meanwhile Labor’s Aged Care Minister and intellectual pygmy, Anika Wells, not content with the burgeoning annual death rate which has more than doubled in Australia, said fourth doses were being prioritized for Australians over 50.

Here we have the ALP political party corporation which elicited only 32 per cent of the national vote, calling the shots under the unlawful and preposterous ‘two party preferred electoral system.’

Have they never heard of former AMA President Doctor Kerryn Phelps who very publicly, dropped the axe on the entire Covid scam last week when she revealed hers and her partner’s serious vaxx injuries?

Heart attacks, strokes, myocarditis and blocked arteries have been identified in thousands of autopsies world wide and almost every smart mortician has warned the world the mRNA vaxx is the killer.

Any person who votes again in Australia deserves all they get.

COVID Fanatics Melt Down Over Twitter Removing Censorship Rules

By Kathleen J. Anderson – December 1, 2022

The left-wing Twitterheads have got to be exhausted because it has been one epic meltdown after another thanks to Elon Musk’s push for a transparent and free speech social media platform. Oh, the humanity!

Most recently, the hyperbole-laden tweets from the left establishment have been focused on a recent change to Twitter policy regarding COVID-19. Ah, COVID. Do you remember when we used to call it The Rona? 

COVID seems like that ex-boyfriend you wish you could erase from your memory but likes to keep popping up on your memory feed, reminding you about your past poor life decisions. Unfortunately, for the left, it’s more like that bad boy ex-boyfriend they can’t seem to quit.

Now, that Twitter ended ‘Covid misinformation’ policies, let’s review the Experts™ misinformation: 1. 15 days to slow the spread 2. Masks work 3. Lockdowns work 4. Natural immunity is a myth 5. mRNA shots are vaccines 6. Covid shots stop transmission 7. ‘100% safe & effective’

COVID fines dumped in NSW Court

By HARRY PALMER

Minister for COVID misinformation and head of the government “Dream Team”, Brad Hazzard was not available for comment to CairnsNews.

Remembered for his media spin doctoring during that government generated pandemic, Mr Bradley Ronald Hazzard, minister for NSW health, member for Wakehurst since 1991.

Good news for NSW, he is retiring from politics next election with that golden handshake and totally unaccountable as pending fallout of government COVID scam is on the Horrison.

Story from New Daily

Millions of dollars worth of fines issued in NSW for breaching COVID restrictions have been withdrawn by the states’ revenue agency.

NSW Revenue said 33,121 fines would be withdrawn following a landmark decision in the Supreme Court, on Tuesday.

A total number of 62,138 COVID-19 related fines were issued.

Refunds will also be given to those that have already paid the fines, which total millions of dollars.

The announcement came roughly an hour after Justice Dina Yehia told a NSW Supreme Court hearing in Sydney she would order refunds be given for two fines (one of $1000 and another of $3000) issued during 2021 public health lockdowns.

Justice Yehia said she accepted evidence given on Tuesday that the fines were not valid because they did not include a description of the offences.

Earlier, David Kell SC, who was representing the NSW Commissioner of Fines Administration, warned the court that the two infringements did not meet requirements of the NSW Fines Act.

But he warned the court should be “cautious” in throwing them out, as it would set a precedent in the area.

Katherine Richardson SC, who appeared for the plaintiffs, called for an immediate refund of the fines value.

“It’s accepted that the two penalties don’t contain a description about the substance of the offence. We were in furious agreement over that,” Ms Richardson told the court.

“It’s only at the 11th hour the Crown has finally accepted that these were invalid.”

Revenue NSW said the decision to withdraw the fines did not mean the offences had not been committed.

“The Commissioner of Fines Administration is able to independently review or withdraw penalty notices,” it said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

“In this case, he has decided to exercise his statutory power to withdraw two types of Public Health Order fines.”

The decision relates to fines issued to individuals and businesses for the infringement, “fail to comply with noticed direction in relation section 7/8/9 – COVID-19”.

The case was launched by the Redfern Legal Centre on behalf of three men – Brenden Beame, Teal Els and Rohan Pank.

Figures obtained by the group showed COVID fines were disproportionately issued to those living in low socio-economic areas, Redfern Legal Centre acting principal solicitor Samantha Lee said last week.

Mr Pank’s fine was withdrawn before the case went to court, with the state agreeing to pay his legal fees.

Justice Yehia ordered the state refund $436 to Mr Beame and $826 to Mr Els and said the men could also file applications to have their legal costs paid.

Ms Lee said the case was about more than just two people’s fines.

“It is about the need to properly adhere to the rule of law, even during a pandemic,” she told news.com.au on Tuesday.

“Today, justice has been granted to three people who took on the NSW government regarding the validity of their COVID fines and won.”

According to Revenue NSW statistics, more than 62,000 fines have been issued for COVID-related offences since the start of the pandemic.

The remaining 29,017 COVID-19 fines would still need to be paid if they were not already resolved, Revenue NSW said in a statement

Justice Yehia said she would order refunds for the other men’s fines, but likely wouldn’t publish reasons for her decision until next year.

International tourists beware – do not visit Melbourne,Victoria or you may never get home

For years Cairns News has understood Victorians to be a different breed but Saturday’s election result defies belief.

Apart from predictable voter fraud, masochistic Victorians have shown the world that mRNA vaxx, combined with deployment of 5G EMF by Telstra, lying doctors, subliminal advertising, Marxist ideologues of the ALP and a treacherous media has worked quite well on the minds of the masses.

The brainwashing did its job and they voted for the ALP.

Cairns News will not bother with any Victorian news in the future. We will leave that to the commos of the ABC and their bedmates in the print media after all that is what the Labor voters of Victoria deserve.

Brain-dead Victorians who support the fascist policies and actions of a psychopathic Premier should feel right at home when next locked up in some Coronahoax or manufactured climate catastrophe.

But Deadly Dan’s health system dystopia is catching up to him fast as more and more vaxx victims die by the dozens every day across the state in their overwhelmed hospitals.

Naturally Dan’s controlled doctors blame a virus that has never been isolated anywhere in the world when acclaimed medical experts such as Dr Robert Malone who developed mRNA technology has told the world the vaxxes are killing thousands every day with millions more to come.

https://www.brighteon.com/5a0610f4-d9aa-47ad-a3a6-1e35b14627d4

Now that Dan is again bunkered down he will be set to crunch any opposition in true Nazi style.

We suggest those oppressed citizens throughout Victoria who want to exit the communist enclave get out as soon as possible before Deadly Dan closes the borders.

Your Covid passports are on the way and you will not enter or exit the state without one. The ALP’s private Robocops will meet you at Checkpoint Charlie and next time they fire on you it will be with lead projectiles not rubber.

International tourists beware, unless you are a card-carrying commo, a poofter or dyke, a pedo or transvestite, or one of Greta Grunterberg’s boyfriends or girlfriends you will not be welcome in the shady state.

Deranged New York Covid cops might have trained in Victoria

A real statesman of the Australian Senate exposes the Covid scam – let the trials begin of those who killed or injured thousands of Australians by experimental vaxx

I have no doubt that, as the truth comes to light, history will judge those in this Parliament as cowards for failing to stand up against the COVID B.S.

Read the study, COVID-19 vaccines – An Australian Review by Conny Turni and Astrid Lefringhausen here.

Watch the COVID INQUIRY 2.0 videos here.

Hansard: As a servant to the people of Queensland and Australia, I note that at the European parliament inquiry into COVID two weeks ago, Janine Small, the President of International Developed Markets for Pfizer revealed that the Pfizer vaccine injection was never tested to see if it would prevent transmission—never tested. Small went on to say this was because Pfizer had to work at the speed of science. Well, it seems the speed of science and the velocity of money are the same thing. Shameful decisions were taken deliberately to facilitate big pharma getting their injections to market in time. The mouthpiece media have the same large investment funds on their share register as big pharma. It’s no surprise the mouthpiece media amplified the COVID scare, doubling down on fear porn and demonising anyone who clung to ‘my body, my choice’, just so the media’s shareholders could line their pockets with tens of billions of dollars in windfall profits.

I remember when the political left walked behind banners reading ‘my body, my choice’. Now real conservatives hold those banners high while the Left abuse us. How fast the Left abandon their principles when an opportunity to tell people what to do comes along, to control people. It was clear after just four months of COVID the scary Chinese videos of people dropping dead in the streets should not have been taken at face value. Measures taken out of an abundance of caution in March 2020 should have been re-examined just a few months later, as we requested and suggested. They never were. At the time, the data clearly showed COVID was no more deadly than a severe flu and well under anything the public would consider to be a pandemic. Let me support that statement.

The following data is from the Australian Bureau of Statistics published in part as a result of a One Nation document discovery a few weeks ago. In 2019, the year before COVID, the seasonal flu cost 4,126 lives. The next year, in 2020, Australia recorded 882 deaths from COVID and 2,287 deaths from the flu for a total of 3,196 deaths, 1,000 less than before COVID, almost a thousand less than the flu alone killed the previous year. In 2021, 1,137 deaths were recorded from COVID and 2,073 from the flu, for a total of 3,210. This means deaths from the flu including COVID across the first two years of the so-called pandemic were right on the long-term average of 3,255. There was nothing unusual about the Australian death rate in 2020 or 2021 yet the COVID substances—I won’t call them vaccines—the COVID injections, were given emergency approval. The only thing about our death rate in 2020 that was unusual was that it was at a seven-year low.

These are facts. This makes a joke of provisional approval granted for injections out of urgency. There was no urgency. It is not just the vaccines that were inappropriately approved; dangerous drugs like the antiviral Remdesivir were waved through using the same false urgency. Remdesivir’s side effects include respiratory failure and organ failure. The perfectly safe but out-of-patent antiviral ivermectin was banned to make way for remdesivir—banned, proven, banned. The UK has recently put ivermectin back into use. We must as well. The conclusion an increasing number of Australians are coming to is that our health technocrats tore up our tried and true health systems to shift products for their mates in the pharmaceutical industry, and now people are dying from those same products.

Once the injection rollout started, there was a spike in deaths. It must be noted correlation is not causation. The link between the cause—vaccines—and the effect—death, injury and suffering—must be proven. Well, it has now been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. At my second COVID Under Question inquiry in August, many highly-qualified medical professionals from around the world established that link, providing evidence the injections were responsible for many more deaths than the health technocrats admit.

Late last month, the Clinical and Experimental Immunology journal published an article entitled ‘COVID-19 vaccines—an Australian review’. The authors are Conny Turni and Astrid Lefringhausen, from the University of Queensland. This article details the medical science behind the wide range of medical harms inflicted on Australians as a result of the hubris and the criminal negligence of health technocrats. I promised to hound you people down, and now science has done that for me. The issue of vaccine harm must be referred to a royal commission today. These criminals must be brought to justice. This report is reproduced on my website, and anyone who reads this report and still defends the fake vaccines is as guilty as the companies that made it.

It’s no surprise that COVID has spiked in correlation with the rollout of the fake vaccines. ABS data is not yet available for 2022, although Australian actuarial data is. In the first four months of 2022, death from all respiratory diseases—the flu, pneumonia and COVID taken together—is still at normal levels, yet deaths from cardiac and pulmonary events are up 11 per cent, and unexplained deaths are up 13 per cent. At this rate, an extra 10,000 Australians will die in 2022. Anyone reading the journal article I referred to will know exactly why this is happening. I refuse to believe our health technocrats do not know. A royal commission must ask what they knew and when.

In May 2020 I criticised fear-driven response to COVID in the Senate, within months of this mismanagement of COVID. At that time Senator Hanson and I were the lone voices of dissent in the Senate, and Craig Kelly and George Christensen were the lone voices in the other place, and Senators Rennick and Antic joined us—six representatives out of 227 people. Everyone else in both houses displayed an ignorance of proper scientific process, an inability to read empirical data and a misplaced trust of health bureaucrats. Health technocrats have spent their entire professional lives working closely with the pharmaceutical industry. And we expected them to be impartial. Come on! We delegated authority to the last people who should have been trusted with that authority.

The Senate is the house of review. Every aspect of our COVID response should have been scrutinised to the last detail. The Senate failed in that mission. COVID measures were beyond question, and it seems they still are. Rather than review, the Senate covered up. Senators Rennick and Antic, in company with myself and Senator Hanson, tried to draw out the truth and were demonised for doing so. Not one senator amongst the political Left entertained a moment’s thought that fear-driven response could be harming more people than it helped. ‘Resistance is futile’ was the message repeated at every press conference on every television in every house of parliament. New Zealand, Canada, the UK and America all joined in the circus of despair, designed to scare people into taking a substance they knew would cause serious harm and death.

Even today, vaccine mandates are still in place around Australia. The reality of a falling birth rate, unexplained increases in deaths and more than 130,000 cases of vaccine harm here in Australia is being ignored. Still, we are told the injection is safe and effective. Safe and effective is not one lie; it is two lies. The vaccine is neither safe nor effective. Medical practitioners who stood up for the rights of their patients were deregistered after action from big pharma’s enforcement arm, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency—under the direction, it seems, of CEO Martin Fletcher and Yvette D’Ath, as chair of the Health Ministers Meeting. They’re the ones who were in control. These technocrats decided they knew what was best for patients—better than the patient’s own doctor. AHPRA must be referred to the royal commission—and the TGA, ATAGI, the Chief Medical Officer, the secretary of the federal health department and Greg Hunt, the federal health minister at the time.

The vaccine emergency use authorisation expires early next year. An inquiry into how the vaccines went would normally be conducted, but they need to stop now. The emergency authorisation needs to stop. I do not have confidence the Therapeutic Goods Administration, the TGA, and the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation, ATAGI, will be honest and impartial in this inquiry. They have not been so far. Only a royal commission can decide all of the issues I have raised tonight. One royal commissioner will not be enough for the litany of legal and regulatory abuse, medical practice, financial malfeasance, conflict of interest, child abuse, human rights abuse and the shredding of international agreements Australia has endured for 2½ years.

The harm from our COVID response was foreseeable and preventable. If only the Senate, the ultimate house of review, had had the courage to stand up and call bullshit. The Senate did not.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT ( Senator Chandler ): Order! Senator Roberts, that language isn’t parliamentary. I ask that you withdraw or find another word.

Senator ROBERTS: I retract that—the brown stuff.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Thank you.

Senator ROBERTS: The Senate did not. As a result, the public has lost confidence in the medical profession, health administration and politicians. To his credit, member of parliament Dan Tehan publicly admitted his silence last year was wrong. This week a survey in the Daily Telegraph found that, based on the 50,000 respondents, 37 per cent of Australians who took the vaccine regret it. Only 43 per cent said they would do it again. The damage to the reputation of our once-trusted medical institutions can only be repaired with a royal commission to unravel the lies and get to the truth, and, in so doing, ensure this tyranny, this suffering and this loss of life never happens again.

I have no doubt that, when the truth comes to light, history will judge those in this place as being cowards all. We have one flag, we are one community, we are one nation, and Australians want justice.

New WA bill to allow for three monthly Covid lock downs, isolation and masking

The West Australian Labor Party will introduce a Bill into State Parliament to amend the Emergency Management Act 2005 to allow for the ongoing management of COVID-19 beyond a State of Emergency.

The Bill will enable the State Emergency Coordinator to make a temporary ‘COVID-19 declaration’ to continue managing the pandemic with sensible measures such as mask wearing and isolation requirements.

WA Labor Premier Mark McGowan

The new framework is fit for purpose and allows for the COVID-19 measures that have kept Western Australia safe and strong during its world-leading response to the pandemic.

A ‘Temporary COVID-19 Declaration’ can only be made if the State Emergency Coordinator is satisfied that COVID-19 poses a risk to the safety of the community, such that it requires a co-ordinated response to prevent loss of life or harm to the health of the community.

Under the new legislation, which will automatically expire in two years’ time, a ‘Temporary COVID-19 Declaration’ can be made for three-month periods at a time. This framework will replace the current system where State of Emergency declarations must be renewed every two weeks to continue.

Unlike a State of Emergency declaration, a ‘Temporary COVID-19 Declaration’ will not allow for the closure of State borders or require an application to enter Western Australia from any other State or Territory.

“Our management of this once-in-a-hundred-year pandemic has saved lives, reduced hospitalisations and protected our strong economy,” Premier Mark McGowan said.

“All Western Australians have done a tremendous job and followed the necessary directions and public health measures to protect themselves and their community.

“The State of Emergency has served its purpose and was key to our unique world-leading response and management of the pandemic.

“With high vaccination rates and low case numbers, now is the right time to plan for COVID-19 management beyond the State of Emergency.

“This new framework is a sensible approach to keep Western Australians safe and while we hope that we’ve passed the worst of COVID-19, our measures have proved to work and should they need to be reintroduced in future if the situation were to escalate then we’ll do so on health advice.”

Some provisions of the Act put in place in May 2022 include:

This Bill will ensure the Emergency Management Amendment (COVID-19 Response) Act 2020 and the Criminal Code Amendment (COVID-19 Response) Act 2020 can continue to be in place as required, as they have been vital in the State’s successful management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under Section 72A of the Emergency Management Act, it makes provisions for a number of directions to be used to manage the pandemic. Some of these directions include:

  • seven day isolation requirements for COVID-19 positive cases;
  • use of face masks for close contacts;
  • measures ensuring cruise ships are managed against strict protocols;
  • restriction of movements in and out of Aboriginal communities – a vulnerable cohort in the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • use of face masks in specific settings including hospitals, aged care and disability facilities, and other passenger transport settings.
  • The Bill provides better protections for WA Police officers, and also ensures increased penalties for serious assaults and threats against frontline officers and healthcare workers who play a significant part in keeping Western Australians safe, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The penalties of up to 10 years in jail reflect the seriousness of deliberately coughing or spitting on public officers who are trying to help keep the State safe.

The new Bill will provide certainty for those necessary provisions to be utilised as necessary and based on health advice, until January 3, 2023. It does not mean the State of Emergency will remain in place until that time, as it may end earlier.

The cost to Australia of the Covid scamdemic

Letter to the Editor

The Institute of Public Affairs recently conducted an investigation of the economic and social cost of the Covid scamdemic.

https://www.nutritruth.org/single-post/australia-s-covid-response-cost-934-8-billion-and-resulted-in-31-x-more-life-years-lost-than-were-s

The direct economic, fiscal and inflationary cost of pandemic measures stand at $938.4 billion as at the end of the 2021-22 financial year.

The authors calculate the total cost of Australia’s pandemic response by assessing net direct economic cost ($2.49 billion), government spending ($595.8 billion), and the cost of inflation arising from zero-covid measures.

This estimate is conservative, as it only accounts for direct costs. Examples of costs not included: extra policing resources to enforce public health directions, and costs of transitioning public sector workers to work from home. This estimate accounts for the period from March 2020 to June 2022. Australia can expect to surpass the trillion dollar mark as the Covid response continues, which the trending hashtag #covidisnotover (favoured by Twitter white coats and health policy spokespeople) indicates that it will do for some time yet.

Just the tip of the iceberg as to what else is in the report. Here is link to the Report, roughly 30 pages, pretty damning.
