A new set of lies – Part 2

Lie Number One
The vaccines are for your own good

There has been an insane political debate
about the speed of Australia’s vaccination program. Our Prime Minister (PM) backed AstraZeneca (AZ) as his favoured injection tool for Australia. But an alarming failure of media policy brought reports of deaths and adverse reactions to public awareness. Australia’s Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) also came out arguing that younger people would be better off staying away from AZ.

Public terror shifted, briefly, from the virus to the vaccines. People stopped turning up for appointments and media attempted to repair the problem by telling us Pfizer is “the safe one”. We should choose that instead. All solved but NO. We now found that our neglectful PM’s AZ choice had another downside. There weren’t enough Pfizer cocktails to go around. So our leaders decided to save this precious product for the vulnerable elderly.

I am a unvaccinated patriot

This is a patriotic time.
Especially, with all these people injected and feeling pretty good about themselves. Some curmudgeons would call them smug. Not me. I simply want a bit of that admiration. With this in mind I want to put myself forward, and only me, as part of an experiment.

Alfred Hospital in Melbourne is using a new anti-viral drug, Favipirivir, in an experiment involving 120 people. The one I’m proposing will be much cheaper. The Melbourne experiment requires participants to take 18 tablets one day and 8 the next. You’d feel like putting a lid on yourself. Again, my test will use much less.

3 stenographers follow the script

An article so dry it leaves you gasping for water

How do three people write an article?
How do three people write an article so dry that you’re left gasping for water? This was my response to a story in Saturday’s Australian Financial Review. The “journalists” David Martin-Gruzman, Tom McIlroy, and Finbar O’Mallon have collaborated on a work noteworthy for its collegiality and for the division its underlying concepts promote. Our media has failed us. There are no insights. No effort to discuss or describe anything outside politicians’ proclamations. I use this article as an example and probably spend too much time pulling it apart.

The AFR 3 presented appalling notions like mandatory mass vaccination, including young children, forced unemployment for unvaccinated workers, whimsical lockdowns, mandated masks for children indoors and other restrictions. Am I exaggerating on this whimsicality? In an adjacent article, NSW Chief Health Officer, Kerry Chant says: “The evidence around curfews is mixed but I also think it sends a significant signal about the crisis we are facing”.

Spike has a plan. What’s ours?

The Liturgy

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.

Vaxxers, Resisters and Treaters

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.

KFR 31st July 2021 – Covid-19 Edition

Here are a few clips that bear heavily on the debate we are not having with regard to Covid-19:

Rebel News is doing some great work. Their record of the Sydney and Melbourne rallies vary starkly from the official dismissive response to them. Here Avi Yemini presents Neil Oliver’s powerful challenge to “Leave the children alone”. I am with him on this. The strange madness that has underpinned this vaccine emergency has now gone too far. Do they really want to test these vaccines on newborns and two year olds. Yes, they do. Also see the Mottram / Blakely discussion below:

Vaccines, Treatments and Media

These people know what's good for us but won't tell us

I am a threat to society. In short, I could kill you.
At any time, a lurking spike protein could find a distracted ACE-2 receptor too lazy to throw off its sheddase enzyme, take over a cell’s machinery, my cell’s machinery, repeat until my immune system says “what are you up to?”. Discovered, the spiky fugitive could then find a sleepier, less robust immune system nearby and soon we’re all done for.
