The UK Government is seriously considering new legislation that would ban all negative information about vaccines, or what they describe as ‘anti-vaccine’ posts.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said Internet companies like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have a ‘Duty of care’ and if they won’t censor such material, then legislation would.

The Independent reports:

Disinformation campaigns from the controversial anti-vax movement have plagued social media firms in recent years, with Facebook among those blamed for helping fuel the misguided belief in scientifically disproven claims that vaccinations are harmful and can cause autism.

The issue has become so severe that several vaccine-preventable diseases like measles have seen outbreaks in areas where they were previously almost eliminated.

The Independent bizarrely goes onto use Charlie Sheen as an example of high profile faces of the anti-vaccine movement, which is a ridiculous example to use, but of course they were never going to use someone like Del Bigtree who provides factual information on the problems surrounding Vaccines.

With the current situation regarding the Covid19 coronavirus this latest move is particularly worrying. Matt Hancock has also previously said that he ‘Wouldn’t rule out mandatory vaccines’.

We’ll keep you posted as this develops.

First, we had China as the epicentre of this allegedly highly contagious virus; we saw it literally sweep through Wuhan, killing it seems, everything in its path. Then attention quickly shifted to Iran as deaths quickly grew from the virus attack, soon after Italy came into the limelight as numbers seem to outpace anything we had seen so far from the Viruses impact in other Countries.

Before long Italy had the highest number of infected and deaths reported in the World, lets take a deeper look at what really is going on.

Failing Health Care System

The Italian healthcare system at one point was regarded as one of the finest in Europe, however over the past decade they have seen a large decline in public dissatisfaction with the services. In the north, public dissatisfaction was just shy of 33%, in the south ratings are as high as 51%.

But as I said, in some respects some of their hospitals are still regarded as some of the best in the World, well that maybe slightly pushing it; but for example Milan Hospital is at number 62 in the top 100 Hospitals Worldwide. Rome is also in the top 100, sitting slightly further down the list at number 88.

The mainstream media have been touting Italy’s healthcare as one of the Worlds best, but this simply is not the case and what the mainstream media fails to mention is the same hospitals failing in this pandemic are the same hospitals struggling just a few years ago during a particularly harsh Influenza season.

So lets go back to winter of 2017/2018 when the Italian healthcare system collapsed during one of the worst influenza outbreaks the Country had seen in over a decade, ViViMilano reports:

The complications of the flu, especially pneumonia, put the reanimations in crisis: 48 cases of seriously ill patients hospitalized from Christmas to today in the intensive care of Policlinico, San Raffaele, San Gerardo of Monza and San Matteo of Pavia, the reference hospitals in Lombardy for the use of the Ecmo, the machine that replaces the lungs.

The problems overlap: difficulties in welcoming new patients, postponement of scheduled surgical interventions and suspended reservations for the bedside of the resuscitations destined to welcome the sick after the operations

Just 48 serious cases of influenza put their healthcare system in the Lombardy region under serious strain, pushing Doctors to ask for help from the Department of Health.

So where do you think the most over run and under prepared region was for the Coronavirus? Yep, you guessed it, the Lombardy region. The same hospitals which struggled with just 48 serious cases of influenza are the worst affected by the current Coronavirus pandemic.

NBC News reports:

The huge number of infections has overwhelmed hospitals in the wealthy region of Lombardy, where both cities are, even as officials went to great lengths to prepare facilities by converting some wards into makeshift intensive care units and adding extra beds wherever possible.

An Ageing Population

Italians typically live longer than most other nations in the World, actually to be exact they rank 5th in the World for life expectancy, which currently sits at 83.4

With life expectancy so high, there will obviously be a large number of people over the age of 65. According to The New York Times almost a quarter of the population are over 65, the same age range that is most at risk to COVID19 .

Live Science reports:

The overall mortality rate is always going to depend on the demographics of a population, said Aubree Gordon, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Michigan. In this case, the reported mortality rate is not “age standardized,” which is a way to adjust for the underlying demographics of a population, she said.

Given Italy’s older population, “you would expect their mortality rate to be higher on average, all else being held equal,” compared with a country with a younger population, Gordon told Live Science.

Will the Real Cause of Death Please Stand Up

Another major factor influencing Italy’s shocking numbers regarding coronavirus deaths is how they are reporting the cause of death.

Prof Walter Ricciardi, scientific advisor to Italy’s minister of health stated:

“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.”

So regardless of whether COVID19 was the actual cause of death or not, if someone died in an Italian hospital over the past few weeks from a pre-existing illness they would have been reported as a coronavirus death.

Prof Ricciardi went on to say:

“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,”

Pollution at Crisis Levels

Italy is a beautiful country, filled with history and architecture that simply takes your breath away, but something else which has been building in Italy for sometime may also leave you breathless, pollution.

A report back in 2018 showed that air quality levels in Italy were now at red alert. As early back as 2011, officials reported that pollution was reaching crisis levels. It is believed that particle pollution now accounts for 9% of all deaths for Italians over the age of 30.

The worst affected area in the recent coronavirus outbreak was Northern Italy, and it will come as no surprise that it is Northern Italy that has the worst levels of air pollution recorded.

The Local reports:

Almost all of the worst affected cities are in northern Italy. Frosinone, south of Rome and an emerging centre of industry, falls outside Italy’s traditional “industrial triangle” in the north-west, as does Macerata in Campania and the Sicilian town of Enna.

Turin, Milan and Naples are the worst cities in the EU for dangerous particulate pollution, while Italy has the bloc’s highest number of premature deaths from nitrogen dioxide fumes spewed out by diesel vehicles, according to the European Environment Agency.

Proportional Reaction?

So it’s clear the Italian health services have been under immense strain during the coronavirus, it also seems appears at least from the media reports that fatalities this season are above average.

But the question is, how much higher and is the reaction being applied proportionate?

Euromomo dedicates their time to collating such information around Europe, mortality rates are plotted year after year for major Countries within Europe. Below is the full plots for various Countries, including Italy:

You’ll notice many countries are actually having a lower than average mortality rate this season, Italy however is higher than usual, lets take a closer look:

Italy historical Mortality rate by week

You can see that back in 2016 Italy had a much high mortality rate peaking on week 52, then easing off as the new year comes in. Again towards the end of 2017 and into 2018 during Italy’s Influenza outbreak which we mentioned earlier, there was a far higher mortality rate.

But did we see the unprecedented reaction from Governments back then? No, in fact nothing happened – it was just deemed a particularly bad year for seasonal viral infections.

Italy is by far the worst example on the list, but still Italy’s mortality rate this year is not its worst in recent history – if you look at Countries like the UK which is currently on full lockdown they are currently going through a below average rate of mortality:

UK historical Mortality rate by week.

Nothing we see anywhere in the World seems to justify the reaction being taken by Governments, mortality rates don’t appear to be abnormal for this time of year, the mortality rate of the COVID19 virus itself doesn’t appear to be significantly higher than other seasonal viral infections.

So the big question we all need to be asking is why, why this over-reaction, are we missing a vital piece of the puzzle? Is this a Global Conspiracy to cover something up, or is it being used as a Trojan Horse?

There are a dozen theories out there to this current crisis, and you can understand why – None of it makes any logical sense.

The CDC once again have made another irresponsible and potentially very damaging statement, this time in regards to a mothers contact with their newborn baby:

According to the new hospital guidelines, which were also published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology, infants born to mothers with coronavirus should be considered persons under investigation (PUIs) and should be isolated in accordance with infection prevention guidance. [source]

And yet we know this so-called deadly strain of the Coronavirus affects less than 1% of under 9 year olds and even less babies. Children across the World typically are unaffected by the COVID19 virus and its been baffling Scientists, but its a fact nevertheless.

Breastfeeding, close contact with its mother, this is what all newborns need to ensure the healthiest start physically and emotionally. Whether the mother has Coronavirus or not is irrelevant based on the data we have on how it affects children, particularly when you compare the data we have on the damage caused by seperation from the mother at Birth.

New studies actually suggest a pro-longed seperation at birth can alter brain development, forever.

The Conversation reports:

Any serious and prolonged disruption of parental care, especially in infants and very young children, alters how the young brain develops. Very young children, younger than five years old, separated from their parents cannot rely on their presence and care anymore, which causes their stress levels to spike.

As stress hormones like cortisol, epinephrine and norepineprhine rise, they alter physiological functions of our bodies to better prepare us to cope with threat. However, prolonged increases in the levels of stress hormones disrupt physiological functions and induce inflammation and epigenetic changes – chemical alterations that disrupt the activity of our genes.

Turning genes on or off at the wrong time alters the developmental trajectory of the brain, changing how neural networks are formed and how brain regions communicate.

UK’s former labour party leader, Gordon Brown has called for a Global Government to be formed to deal with the current Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Guardian Reports:

The former Labour prime minister, who was at the centre of the international efforts to tackle the impact of the near-meltdown of the banks in 2008, said there was a need for a taskforce involving world leaders, health experts and the heads of the international organisations that would have executive powers to coordinate the response.

Brown said, “This is not something that can be dealt with in one country… There has to be a coordinated global response.”

Brown said his proposed global taskforce would fight the crisis on two fronts. There would need to be a coordinated effort to find a vaccine, and to organise production, purchasing and prevent profiteering.

The question is, just how temporary would this Global Government be?

Corey Feldman delivers on his promise to name Corey Haim’s abuser in a surprisingly entertaining and well made expose on child predators in Hollywood.

From Movieweb.com

Some have painted Corey Feldman to be an unreliable narrator in the recent past, with many believing that he has made up some outlandish stories. He claims to have been stabbed, almost run over, and that he needs security 24/7. His new movie goes onto seemingly prove some of these allegations. It’s tough material, but Feldman brings a lot of heart and humor to the proceedings, and what we’re left with is at first a quintessential look at 80s pop culture that shifts into an eye-opening expose on child abuse and sexual misconduct that continues to run rampant in the entertainment industry today.

With the movie, Corey Feldman promised to reveal several big names, outing one individual as the person who raped Corey Haim on the set of the movie Lucas back in 1985. It has been one of the selling points of the documentary. For Feldfam members and Corey Haim enthusiasts, the ultimate answer to the question is well known. Outsiders looking in may need to prepare for several big shocks. But the way it’s laid out in the movie is never salacious or unnecessary, it doesn’t create controversy for the sake of it.

It began in China; we heard of a novel strain of the coronavirus which was rapidly sweeping through the City of Wuhan. Then came the footage of people collapsing in the streets, police boarding up buildings to enforce quarantine on those within. Bodies being dragged out of buildings, what we saw in the west looked something akin to an apocalyptic movie straight out of Hollywood.

Then came Iran, then Italy, the death toll numbers began to grow exponentially and then before we know it, the World is in Lockdown!

So, from everything we have seen and by the unprecedented restrictions placed upon us by our Governments, you would assume that this virus must be the most deadly infectious virus that has ever faced humanity? It must be, surely?

What is the Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is one of the most common viruses that we humans have to endure every year, we typically refer to them as the common cold. The average adult has around 2 – 3 coronavirus infections every year, while children have on average around 10 a year.

The virus is particularly vulnerable to a mutation, which is why big pharma has struggled to monetize a workable vaccine for the virus. There have multiple strains of the Coronavirus which has sent the World into a panic, in 2002 we had SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] which was first discovered in China, then in 2012 we had MERS Coronavirus [Middle East Respiratory Syndrome], which was first discovered in Saudi Arabia.

Covid-19 is about 70% the same as the SARS virus of 2002 which led many to believe that the virus was modified in a laboratory by human hand.

COVID-19 Demoted from HCID

On March 19th, the same day as the coronavirus Bill was introduced, the UK no longer considered the COVID-19 to be a high consequence infectious disease. Confused, yeah, so are we.

From the UK Government website:

The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak.

Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria.

They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

COVID-19 Danger Over Estimated – Study

A new study out of France has concluded that the dangers of SARS-CoV-2 is probably being over estimated. In fact the study suggests that the COVID-19 presents little more danger than any other Coronavirus, including the common cold.

Mortality rate between common coronaviruses and COVID-19 was negligible from the study:

This study compared the mortality rate of SARS-CoV-2 in OECD countries (1.3%) with the mortality rate of common coronaviruses identified in AP-HM patients (0.8%) from 1 January 2013 to 2 March 2020. Chi-squared test was performed, and the P-value was 0.11 (not significant).

We highly recommend you take a look at this study, it contradicts just everything we have been led to believe about this supposed deadly strain of the coronavirus.

Still Confused?

You should be, we certainly are. Everything contradicts whatever information it is next you come across. The Science seems to say,  ‘chill out, it’s nothing to worry about’ – meanwhile the Governments unprecedented behaviour seems to suggest we should lock ourselves away in a box for at least 57 years.

I cannot give you an answer, I will not pretend to know anymore or less than you – what I do know is this, when information is as corrupt and murky as this you should question the validity of the whole event.

I don’t think the coronavirus COVID-19 is going to kill you, or at least not the overwhelming majority of you – however, I wonder if there is something else far more dangerous being overlooked here, COVID-19 is looking more like a Trojan Horse every day.

Stay rational, stay smart, keep your head and we’ll keep you posted!

Its been quite a day for the citizens of the United Kingdom, though not unexpected. First of all we will start with the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson‘ latest announcement, which laid out the new lockdown rules for the UK.

As from Monday evening, the British people would only be allowed to leave home for the following “very limited purposes“:

  • Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible and a maximum of once per day.
  • One form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • Any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • Travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.

All shops selling non-essential goods will be closed as well as playgrounds, libraries and places of worship.

Police will have the right to enforce these rules wherever they deem necessary. The initial period for this lockdown has been set at three weeks, however, expect period to be extended far beyond this initial stated period.

So thats basically it for the new UK Lockdown rules, they are pretty much in line with what the rest of Europe are doing now.

But the UK are one step ahead in other ways, the new Coronavirus Bill is by far the most Draconian piece of legislation the UK Government has ever unleashed onto its people.

Coronavirus Bill (HC Bill 122)

The new Coronavirus bill was passed in parliament today, the bill is a big one at 100 pages, but here are some of the highlights you really need to know about:

  • If the state deem it necessary, Vaccination can be performed without patient consent.
  • Changes to the Mental Health act will mean a single practitioner can have someone sectioned into psychiatric care. A second opinion will not be required.
  • Most Councils duties to its residents no longer have to be adhered to. This includes meeting the eligible needs of vulnerable older people, disabled people, and care leavers moving into adult social care.
  • Forced detainment of anyone ‘suspected’ of having the Covid19 Virus.

We are still ploughing our way through the 100 page bill, but that seems to be the worst of it. Initially, this bill would be active for two years before review, however after pressure from opposition this was changed to a review after six months.

The bill has removed all rights from an individual living in the UK while the bill remains enacted. Police and health workers may detain anyone they want without second opinions. The right to appeal exists, however this right cannot be used until the crisis is over as appeals in courts are on hold because of the crisis.

Mark Windows goes through some of the highlights in the Coronavirus Bill in the latest episode of Windows on the World. We highly recommend a listen and subscribing to the channel to keep up to date with the very latest on what could be one of the greatest events in our generation.

AirGig is a new technology developed by AT&T to transfer Wi-Fi and wireless data over power lines using 4G LTE and 5G millimeter waves.

To date, AT&T has submitted over 500 patents and applications related to the AirGig technology, which turns existing power lines into transmitters. According to AT&T’s glowing press releases, AirGig could even replace cell towers:

We hope that one day there will be no need to build new towers or bury new cables in locations close to aerial power lines. Instead, using AirGig patented technology, we would install devices to provide high speed broadband which can be clamped on by trained electrical workers in just a few minutes.

The AirGig technology aims to provide “ultra-fast” broadband Wi-Fi anywhere there are power lines, offering “last-mile wireless connectivity” without the need for deployment of any new fiber-to-the-home.

As “last-mile” suggests, AT&T is framing its AirGig technology as a solution for extending wireless access to virtually everyone on the planet. The company writes:

Project AirGig has opened the door to the possibility of broadband internet connectivity for nearly everyone currently served by an electric utility. It’s a first-of-its-kind technology that is expected to deliver broadband connectivity to homes and mobile devices wherever there are power lines—whether urban, rural or underserved parts of the world.

What AT&T does not spell out in its glossy communications is that AirGig will make it impossible to escape exposure to wireless radiation, even in our homes.

AirGig will saturate our environment—every inch of it—with close-proximity, high-intensity radiation. The few relatively safer areas that still exist will quickly disappear.

Not only will those who already have become sick from wireless radiation have nowhere to escape to, but many more are likely to experience immediate health impacts.

She admitted that no one has looked at the health effects of smart cities—and added that it is ‘not her job’ to do so.

AirGig tests already underway

One of the AirGig selling points being promoted by AT&T is collaboration with utility companies “as they evolve toward the ‘smart grid’” and the rollout of so-called “smart cities.”

In fact, in December 2017, AT&T announced that it was starting to test AirGig in rural and suburban Georgia in collaboration with the state’s utility, Georgia Power. (AT&T also announced a second field test site in an undisclosed location outside the U.S.)

Since that announcement two years ago, AT&T has been relatively quiet about AirGig’s progress. In September 2018, however, the company summarized results from its Georgia trial run as “encouraging” and announced its intention to expand the technology’s field trials.

In May 2017, I participated in a conference on 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) organized by the American Bar Association and sponsored by various wireless companies. One of the main presentations was a “Smart Cities” talk by Atlanta’s City Attorney, who described how smart cities will promote the “well-being” of their residents. After the lecture, I approached her to discuss implications for human health. She admitted that no one has looked at the health effects of smart cities—and added that it is “not her job” to do so.

At present, the deployment of 5G promises to interconnect 20 billion devices wirelessly, adding 800,000 ‘small cells’ (base stations) close to our homes and launching 50,000 satellites that will also require 1,000,000 antennas on the ground.

AirGig and 5G

The use of millimeter waves in a typical wireless configuration has limited range in comparison with equipment operating in other spectrum bands, but AT&T’s planned use of power line infrastructure as a “wave guide” for AirGig, will help extend the distance that millimeter-wave signals can travel. The testing in Georgia used a combination of millimeter-wave and LTE spectrum.

AirGig will be part of AT&T’s wider wireless infrastructure, particularly pertaining to 5G. The company stated in 2018, “We think Project AirGig and 5G have a lot of natural synergies, and we plan to test 5G paired with AirGig in the future.” In 2019, an AT&T vice president confirmed the company’s view of AirGig as “a very complementary technology to 5G.” Previous statements by AT&T indicate that the company wants to evolve its entire network to support gigabit service; it anticipates getting there using a “mixture of options”—AirGig in some cases and 5G or “G.fast” in other cases.

At present, the deployment of 5G promises to interconnect 20 billion devices wirelessly, adding 800,000 “small cells” (base stations) close to our homes and launching 50,000 satellites that will also require 1,000,000 antennas on the ground. This is wireless insanity. For me, however, AirGig is one of the technologies that scares me the most.

I check often for updates about AirGig’s deployment. In January 2019, AT&T released a policy paper that did not provide an exact launch date for commercial AirGig service but ominously stated, “we’re moving closer to that moment every day.” Every day I hear about work being done to the power lines in my area, I get concerned.

Children’s Health Defense FCC lawsuit

The deployment of dangerous wireless technologies such as AirGig is allowed without our consent and even notice because the harmful radiation emitted is within the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) health and safety guidelines from 1996. These guidelines are at least three decades obsolete—as even the U.S. Department of the Interior has admitted.

On December 4, 2019, the FCC announced that it is not going to review its outdated guidelines, proclaiming that there is no evidence of harm. As a result, Children’s Health Defense and other Petitioners filed a lawsuit against the FCC on February 2, 2020.

The other Petitioners include parents of children who have been injured, doctors and Professor David Carpenter—the Co-Editor of the BioInitiative Report, which is the largest review of the science on this issue. The lawsuit claims the FCC’s decision not to review its safety guidelines is capricious, arbitrary, non-evidence-based and an abuse of discretion.

This historic case attacks the premise upon which the deployment and proliferation of wireless technology is based. Likely, it is the only way we can sue the government for the harm it has been creating and enabling.

Its that time of the week again when the US futures markets open for business, oh and then get shutdown 5 minutes later due to another crash.

CNBC reports:

U.S. stock futures opened sharply lower on Sunday night as Wall Street waits on Washington to agree to an economic stimulus and rescue plan to combat the giant economic blow from the coronavirus outbreak.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures fell more than 900 points, or 5%, to hit their “limit down” level. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures were also down around 5%. Downside limits to futures contracts are implemented to ensure orderly market behavior. 

U.S. crude futures also slid by more than 4%, adding to last week’s massive losses. 

Futures could be highly volatile as headlines come out of a coronavirus task force news conference Sunday evening and as traders await news on a stimulus bill agreement (or lack of one).

We expect much more down side to come, if you think the last few days and weeks have been crazy, you haven’t seen anything yet. Hold on to your horses, the coming week is going to be hell of a ride!

We’ll keep you posted and remember, don’t take it to seriously, laugh a lot, love a lot and fear, not at all.

Peace, Love & Anarchy!

A recent military study shows military personnel evaluated who received the flu vaccine had a 36 percent increased risk of coronavirus.

The study concludes:

….Examining virus interference by specific respiratory viruses showed mixed results. Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus.

What Does This Mean?

The following explanation is the best we have come across:

The study highlights the value of the human body’s ability to fight against viruses. Apparently, by contracting influenza, the body naturally “may reduce the risk of non-influenza respiratory viruses…”

Due to the flu vaccine’s “interference” with the naturally occurring biological process, there may be an increased risk of contracting non-influenza viruses:

“While influenza vaccination offers protection against influenza, natural influenza infection may reduce the risk of non-influenza respiratory viruses by providing temporary, non-specific immunity against these viruses. On the other hand, recently published studies have described the phenomenon of vaccine-associated virus interference; that is, vaccinated individuals may be at increased risk for other respiratory viruses because they do not receive the non-specific immunity associated with natural infection.”

So the study indicates people who receive the flu vaccine are at increased risk for coronavirus.

Which is very ironic when you consider that the CDC and their media buddies are all encouraging people to quickly run along and get their flu vaccines:

“I do think immunizing people against influenza has a very important indirect effect,” said Dr. Albert Ko, a professor and department chair at the Yale School of Public Health. [Source]

While this isn’t directly an issue right now, as the study concludes that contracting influenza itself helps the body fight respiratory problems in the future; it does seem irresponsible to put people at a 36% risk in any future outbreaks of coronavirus that we may have.
