Premier Palaszczuk, Jackie Trad and Warren Entsch do not give a damn about the Far North; let it burn!
These politicians refuse to partition North Queensland from Coronavirus
Far North Queensland Coronavirus tally stands at 19 confirmed, imported cases in Cairns and Hinterland
Gun shops in Qld and WA closed
These politicians don’t care if North Queenslanders live or die from Coronavirus. Top left to right: Deputy Premier Jackie Trad; Federal Liberal Member for Leichardt(Cairns) Warren Entsch and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. While the Far North has only 21 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, now is the time to shut the gate.
Speaker of the House and Member for Mulgrave (Cairns) has joined the ‘hate North Queenslanders’ throng by opposing the annexure of North Queensland to keep out Coronavirus.. He told the ABC the boundary being suggested by KAP leader Robbie Katter and many others is the proposed boundary for the new State of North Queensland. Therefore he opposes it. There is no doubt voters who survive the epidemic will remember this if they get to vote again.
These disingenuous politicians do not give a damn about North Queensland. In spite of urgent calls from the medical profession, local government, residents and politicians, Comrade Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Comrade Deputy Premier Jackie Trad refuse to separate North Queensland from the Coronavirus hotspots of south east Queensland.
Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter has demanded the State Labor Government cut off North Queensland at Marlborough, Central Queensland before any more infected travelers from the south afflict an as yet largely healthy population.
Close the gun shops
Instead a terrified State Government responded by ordering the closure of all gun shops.
Northern gun dealers have reported record ammo sales and an unusual spike in gun sales.
But the horse has bolted. Gunshops are on their last stocks of ammunition and if the Labor Party thought hoarding dunny rolls was awful, they had better remember there are more than 600,000 registered gun owners in Queensland and at least another100,000 unregistered.
Rolling out the army to keep tabs on those quarantined with Coronavirus has now branched into the military manning road blocks on all entrances into Cape York Peninsula, west to Kowanyama and south at the Gulf Developmental Road turnoff at 40 mile scrub, about 45 minutes south of Mt Garnet.
All of these roadblocks will be situated in Bob Katter’s electorate of Kennedy.
Has anyone heard if the federal government has sought permission from the Governor General to declare martial law?
Some politicians are more caring about North Queensland than the urbane Labor Party of the south east.
North Queensland Federal Members Michele Landry, George Christensen, Phillip Thompson and Senator Matt Canavan have backed Bob and Robbie Katter’s demand to separate the northern part of the state before there are any more infections.
These worthwhile Members have much more on their minds than the next state election which the Labor Party is predicted to lose.
Letter to the Editor
Italy: Only 12% of “Covid19 deaths” list Covid19 as cause Report shows up to 88% of Italy’s alleged Covid19 deaths could be misrepresented.
The way Italy registers deaths explains their increased coronavirus case/fatality ratio, according to one expert and a report from Italy’s National Institute of Health (ISS).
Citing this report (in English here), Professor Walter Ricciardi, scientific adviser to Italy’s minister of health said:
The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus […] On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three,”
This has been reported widely, it was even in The Telegraph, and yet no one seems to be engaging with it.
The president of the Italian Civil Protection Service actually went out of his way to remind people of the nature of Italy’s fatality figures in a morning briefing on 20/03:
” I want you to remember these people died WITH the coronavirus and not FROM the coronavirus”

It’s all a fake! – Citizens of Wuhan China call the corona virus “fake” its all fake
Here’s what the CDC says about the test for the Coronavirus
Straight from the horse’s mouth—both sides
—The CDC (US Center for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed. That’s the overview and the takeaway—
As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.
That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.
It DIAGNOSES patients. “Yes, you have the virus.” “No you don’t.”
A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test. The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.
Here is a CDC paragraph about results. I suggest you read it several times.
“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”
I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.
The key line in that paragraph is: “The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”
CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease…
On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t.
This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report. It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.
On a deeper level, the CDC is saying straight out, IF THE TEST SHOWS A CORONAVIRUS IS PRESENT, THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S CAUSING DISEASE.
Well, yes, I’ve pointed out that the test has an inherent problem. At best, it might show that a virus is present in the patient’s body. But the test is incapable of determining HOW MUCH virus is ACTIVELY REPLICATING in the patient’s body.
And why is that important? Because, to even begin to say a virus is causing actual illness in a human, there would have to be millions and millions of a virus replicating in his body—and the PCR test has never been proven, in the real world, to be able to make such a judgment call accurately.
But, if you read that CDC quote again, you’ll see the CDC is ordering labs to report a positive test result to public health agencies—where it will be counted as a “coronavirus case” come hell or high water.
Thank you, CDC. So very, very much. The next ship for Uranus leaves tomorrow. Pile on board and make the trip. You can run tests there to your heart’s content.
