This is the common sense we can’t listen to. Give this video 5 minutes.
Yesterday, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) banned general practitioners from prescribing Ivermectin as a treatment for Sars-Cov-2 and Covid-19.
This decision was made by the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS).
This committee comprises three pharmacists, a pharmacologist, a sports physician, an accountant and a pharmaceutical company tout. No clinician or infectious disease expert appears to have been directly involved in this decision. There is nothing on the TGA website to contradict this understanding.
Every morning Sydney hosts its 11am Covid-19 ritual. New South Wales Premier Gladys solemnly records the newly infected, newly hospitalised, ICU entrants and the dead. Our chief health officer, Kerry Chant, performs a short liturgy: “Test…Isolate”. These announcements are then reannounced in various formulations over the next half hour interspersed with urgent calls for us to vaccinate. The media then asks the same questions it did yesterday using today’s numbers. This allows for further reannouncements and even more urgent calls for us to be vaccinated. We are also reminded that this is the only way out of lockdown. Other Australian states go through a similar daily process.
As an unvaccinated person, the liturgy is of particular interest to me. In my uninfected state my main concern is to avoid Delta. If it is as dangerous as we’re told, it will come looking for me. It will then be time to action the “Test……Isolate” strategy. Let’s say I find myself in an exposure zone or one comes here, I’ll need a PCR test. If the PCR test works and I remain uninfected then I get on with my useless life.
Yet, if the test works and I become both an infected and infector, it will be time to implement part 2 of Kerry’s “Test……Isolate” plan. Go straight to my meticulously designed isolation chamber with the ensuite and stay there awaiting further instructions. This is easy if you’re living by yourself especially if you’re a doomsday prepper. The rest of us will be relying on family or housemates to keep us fed and in contact with the rest of the world.
So you’re in the isolation chamber having completed your “Test….Isolate” civic duty. Covid-19, from hereon known as Spike, is happy because no-one has interfered with his plan to raise a family and move to your lungs. This is where Kerry’s plan seems to be short an action or two. It was this concern that prompted me to go looking for the rest of Covid-19 survival manual.
I don’t have a medical background Yet, why should this disbar me from commenting on the state of the present politically and now military driven Covid-19 response. We have some incredibly sycophantic, uninformed members of the media doing exactly that right now. Other players seem to have stridently anti-social views and agendas. I am not denying Covid-19 can have extreme adverse effects on people who contract it. I do believe our response would be improved by broadening participation to include clinicians and experts who are not so tightly wedded to the vaccine or nothing outlook. The discussion that follows is based on my experience as a resident of Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales.
Where does money come from? I can’t think of a more important or confusing question. When we run short of something in our daily lives we normally do something about it. Whether we are short of carrots, cars, computers or crayons we don’t have to think too hard about what to do. We go to the dealer, supermarket or art supply shop and get what we need.
The truth is that in this age of plenty we rarely run short of anything. We might lack one of these items as individuals. Not everyone has a car or computer. However, society rarely if ever runs out of anything. Our supermarkets are always stocked with food. A variety of stores provide just about anything we need. The one thing we are short of, as a society, is money. So why don’t we figure out where it comes from and do something about it?
A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, a capitalist economy subject to stringent governmental controls, violent suppression of the opposition, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
Oppressive, dictatorial control.
I have been a close observer of politics for fifty years. In that time, nothing has impressed me more than the size of the propaganda campaign surrounding Covid-19.
We have had this ambitious project imposed on us worldwide with all the emphasis on injections. Deaths and injuries caused by them are generally ignored by all of our main institutions. When they do break through we’re told they are rare.
The Three Commandments
Media’s participation has been vital to the project. It reinforced three commandments.
Thou shalt be afraid. Covid-19 is dangerous beyond belief and you will be lucky to get out of this alive.
Thou shalt have one solution that must be repeated forever. Take the injection.
To know the art of impressing the imagination of crowds is to know at the same time the art of governing them.
“The Crowd” by Gustave Le Bon
The market is the best information processor the world has ever known. In its perfect form, aided by government to the extent of its needs, it has led the western world to prosperity over the last 50 years. This perfect form is achieved through neoliberalism.
This is the story that champions of the market have sold to us.
I am not describing the world of laissez-faire capitalism and small government. We moved on from there after the Great Depression. If you’re over 40 today, you knew an anomalous period before neoliberalism gained a firm grip on society.
During this time it was easier, comparatively, for people to pay off a home and build a nest egg or six in the form of investment properties, share portfolios and superannuation. For most young people today, the only share they know is accommodation, super is weak and the door to home ownership has been slammed shut.
[N]othing is more fatal to a people than great reforms, however excellent these reforms may appear theoretically.”

Last week an erstwhile friend stopped me in the street long enough to call me selfish for not being vaccinated. He’d seen some of the pieces I had written recently and decided they were reason enough to reassess my character and put aside a friendship that extended over 30 years. It seems I had broken the trust that underpinned our relationship.
Who do you trust? Why do you trust them? These are important questions that major media organisations have been struggling to shape and control. The media battleground has been shaken up significantly in recent years. With the collapse of the traditional funding model, the fragile relationship between the mainstream media and the public has been shattered.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone or anyone who thinks the unvaxxed have it coming.
What should we do with the unvaccinated is a question occupying the fevered brains of many of our now free, vaccinated citizens. We have a duty to do as members of a society and the unvaxxed won’t do it.
Vaccination is not only a passport to the things we once did without asking permission like travel, shop, go to the movies, visit friends and family; it also invites the injected to employ their new and superior powers of judgement.
This is of more than passing interest to me. I am unvaccinated.
What follows is from a New South Wales perspective but broadly reflects the experience of Australians across the country.
Our media is regurgitative not investigative. There is an astonishing uniformity in the reporting by our journalists; in the terms they use and don’t use, the questions they ask and don’t ask.
An excellent example is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and its role in reporting events surrounding Covid-19. In the last few days, a major public revolt in Melbourne over lockdowns and looming mandatory vaccinations brought people out into the street.
The ABC used its considerable resources, radio, television and online media to “flood the zone” and made sure we drew the right conclusions.
On a Saturday, morning a few weeks ago, I heard the first reports that 4 people tested positive to Covid-19 in Wilcannia. Another 6 in nearby Broken Hill, 197 miles away. That’s nearby in Australian standards. People travel those distances regularly to play football and visit family.
Wilcannia is 946 kilometres (547 miles) from Sydney with a population of 745 mainly Indigenous residents. It sits on the Baaka River, better known to European settlers as The Darling. Since my youth, the river has been notable for its long dry spells. Few would imagine its days as part of a paddle steamer route, joining with the Murray River.
The story told here is best left to the people of Wilcannia and Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), including Karla Grant and her team. We will make a few observations after you’ve made your own.
This might be the biggest lie of all. It denies the experience of the growing number of people injured by these injections. It denies the experience and opportunity for redress for the families of the many who have been killed if not murdered.
But only a gentle one. You could watch or listen to Australian media and believe this vaccine project has brought nothing but joy. The only dark corner is the daily Covid briefings where stern state premiers and their sepulchral chief medical officers read out the calumnies of the unvaccinated and venerate the virtues of those vaxxed. Today, we were told that this latter group will soon be free.
This is unlike anything I have experienced. You hear stories from friends of friends. Rumours are rife but unsubstantiated. Public figures you don’t trust seem to be speaking truth and those you have more regard for appear to be lying. If not lying, then completely absorbed, entrapped and insulated by lies.
Lie Number 2 There are no safe and effective Covid-19 treatments
This is simply untrue. A more open public debate would expose this fraud. There are many well-credentialled, intelligent and capable medical professionals who are excluded by media. Unsocial Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google play their part too.
For example, you may well find links blocked by the Google’s Chrome or its partner YouTube on this site. If you do, choose another browser.
Essential and obvious questions are neither asked nor tolerated; even questions our excluded experts might easily answer. Instead, we get the bleating of well-connected celebrity medics and a media committed to stenography rather than investigative journalism.
“Agnotology – the study of culturally induced ignorance or doubt”
What happened to the surplus? Remember that? It was sooooo important it trumped everything else. As a country, we had to be careful not to spend too much on education, health, public transport, employment, social housing or we would run out of money. It was something we were always reaching for but never attained.
We had the need for all those important services. We even had the resources. But sadly didn’t have the money. Which is strange because creation of money is an easy thing for a Federal government to do as the Covid-19 crisis has shown. Our media stars like Leigh Sales were never stuck for a question when they could ask: “Where will the money come from?” This passed for cutting edge journalism. No-one betrayed the secret.
