COVID19 – the end of scientific discussion?

24th May 2021

I haven’t written a blog for a while. Instead, I have been sorting out two complaints about my blog made to the General Medical Council. Also, a complaint from NHS England, and two irate phone calls from other doctors, informing me I shouldn’t make any negative comments about vaccines.

For those in other countries, who don’t know about such things, doctors in the UK are ruled by many different organisations, all of whom feel able to make judgement and hand down various sanctions. The deadliest of them, the ‘Spanish Inquisition’ if you like, is the General Medical Council (GMC) who can strike you off the medical register and stop you working as a doctor. They have great power, with no oversight.

Prior to this, I had been phoned by, and attacked by, two journalists and a couple of fact-checking organisations that have sprung up which can decide your guilt or innocence with regard to any information about COVID19. Of course, no-one can check the fact-checkers. They are the self-appointed guardians of ‘truth.’ quis custodiet ipsos custodes – indeed. (Who guards the guardians?)

In truth they have not scared me off, just greatly annoyed me. The problem is that if they really decide to hunt you down, then you are wiped from the system. Dr Mercola, for example, is having to remove information from his site in great haste. Once wiped from the internet, it becomes very difficult for anyone to read anything you write or listen to anything you say. A major problem if this is how one makes a living.

I was removed from Wikipedia a couple of years ago, but I do have a couple of insulting pages on Rational W (https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Malcolm_Kendrick) to take their place. Edited and controlled by – who knows?

I think it is the extreme wing of the Vegan party who decided to write my history, and thoughts, on rational Wikipedia. I say this because a large number of other people I know who are critical of the diet-heart hypothesis, those who dared to suggest that eating animal products is perfectly healthy, were also obliterated from Wikipedia at pretty much the same time.

I did rather like the idea of Wikipedia when it started, but it has been taken over by people, some may say zealots, with their own agendas. This is particularly true of a few scientific areas I am particularly interested in. Diet, heart disease and COVID19.

Frustratingly, there is nothing you can do if Wikipedia decides to wipe you out. There is no appeal. Those who have gained the power to edit Wikipedia are answerable to no-one. They rule their little empires with absolute power. They are, of course, exactly the sort of people who should have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with science. Their minds were made up years ago. They have agendas, they are the anti-science, anti-scientist brigade.

The main purpose of science is to question and attack. To subject ideas to the greatest scrutiny.  Those who decide to shut down and stifle debate … whatever they may believe themselves to be doing, they are in fact traitors to the cause of science. Stranglers of the enlightenment, assassins of progress.

They are not alone, and things have got far worse, in the last year or so. Science has taken a terrible battering with COVID19, I have always known that dissent against a widely held scientific hypothesis is difficult.

Just trying to get published is a nightmare. The peer-review system is one of the many weapons used against innovative thinking. ‘Let’s see what the current experts think of this new idea which threatens to overturn everything they have researched and taught over the last thirty years, and have built their reputations on… I wonder if they will like it, and approve it?’

Experts certainly create a formidable barrier to change. As described by David Sackett (a founding father of evidence-based medicine) in his article ‘The sins of expertness and a proposal for redemption.

‘….It then dawned on me that experts like me commit two sins that retard the advance of science and harm the young. Firstly, adding our prestige to our opinions gives the latter far greater persuasive power than they deserve on scientific grounds alone. Whether through deference, fear, or respect, others tend not to challenge them, and progress towards the truth is impaired in the presence of an expert.

The second sin of expertness is committed on grant applications and manuscripts that challenge the current expert consensus. Reviewers face the unavoidable temptation to accept or reject new evidence and ideas, not on the basis of their scientific merit, but on the extent to which they agree or disagree with the public positions taken by experts on these matters.’ 1

And his proposal:

‘But there are still far more experts around than is healthy for the advancement of science. Because their voluntary retirement does not seem to be any more frequent in 2000 than it was in 1980, I repeat my proposal that the retirement of experts be made compulsory at the point of their academic promotion and tenure.’

Expertise is great. ‘Experts’… well, that is a completely different matter. We certainly have a few formidable ones kicking about with COVID19. In the UK we have the great and good of the SAGE committee made up of – who knows? – chosen for whatever reasons. They wield enormous power, and never disagree on anything. In the US we have Fauci and the CDC. Ditto.

In the background we have the WHO … who can tell you what way the wind is blowing if nothing else. They remind me of Groucho Marx’s famous comment. ‘These are my principles. And you if you don’t like them…. I have others.’ However, we at the WHO would like to make it clear that nothing about COVID19 has anything to do with China, in any way. Can we have more money please?

Anyway, where are we with COVID19, and science?

In my opinion COVID19 succeeded in breaking my last vestiges of faith in medical scientific research. I cannot believe anything I read. I accept no mainstream facts or figures.

We are told such utter nonsense. For example, the ‘fact. that vaccination protects against COVID19 more effectively than having had the disease itself… This is just utter nonsense.

We were told that COVID19 was spread by touching contaminated surfaces… Really? We were told it spread though droplets, not aerosols. Which is the most complete garbage. We were told that everyone has to wear a mask. We were told it could easily be passed on by asymptomatic people. Based on nothing at all. I could go on.

Yet, no-one seems remotely bothered by any of this utter nonsense. The public seem to lap it up, and attack anyone who questions the current narrative. I feel that I am clinging onto a dying religion. The religion of Francis Bacon and the enlightenment.

Baconian method, methodical observation of facts as a means of studying and interpreting natural phenomena. This essentially empirical method was formulated early in the 17th century by Francis Bacon, an English philosopher, as a scientific substitute for the prevailing systems of thought, which, to his mind, relied all too often on fanciful guessing and the mere citing of authorities to establish truths of science.

After first dismissing all prejudices and preconceptions, Bacon’s method, as explained in Novum Organum (1620; “New Instrument”), consisted of three main steps: first, a description of facts; second, a tabulation, or classification, of those facts into three categories—instances of the presence of the characteristic under investigation, instances of its absence, or instances of its presence in varying degrees; third, the rejection of whatever appears, in the light of these tables, not to be connected with the phenomenon under investigation and the determination of what is connected with it.2

This way of thinking it seems, lasted from 1620 to 2020. Four hundred years of immense scientific progress. The age of enlightenment. We are moving back to the prevailing systems of thought… on fanciful guessing and the mere citing of authorities to establish truths of science.

The Dark Ages are returning.

      If it were only a corruption problem…unfortunately, tyrannical Rationalism is in play…allied with Pharma…tyrannical Rationalism was exemplified by socialism in the USSR. Lots of play on fear in order to gain acquiescence. Bullying was justified by fear of capitalist warmongers, running dog lackeys, counter-revolutionaries and the like, threatening the workers’ paradise. Of course, their paradise went to hell. Tyranny tends to do that, including in 2021.

        It was tyrannical but Soviet communism was not rationalism and neither is the current version of communism. In both cases, what drives decisions is political ideology, which is the opposite of rationalism. Yes, the Soviets pretended that they were “scientific” and communists today pretend to “follow the science” and be “critical thinkers” but this is just ideological zealots wearing the skin suit of dead science in order to appropriate its prestige.

          Interestingly enough, since in Soviet times Medicine wasn’t profit driven, Soviet doctors were allowed to pursue avenues of medical inquiry that aren’t done in the West. It would from time to time be interrupted by Ideological witch hunts like an attempt to ban genetics or a desire to rebrand Chinese acupuncture as “reflexotherapy” but, overall, Soviet medical practices were more eclectic and, at times, more daring, in my opinion.

          Rationalism _is_ an ideology. It sits atop Modernism and gave rise to Political Science and Marxism. The USSR was reliant on Marxism, Political science, Modernism, and Rationalism.

          Marx saw his work as scientific–the science of politics–which he saw as inevitable progress based on the natural order. The linear thought of Rationalism combined with Hegelian dynamics resulted in Marxism. In Rationalism, development of science is forced according to natural principles. Physics leads to Chemistry, which leads to Biology, which leads to Psychology and Sociology, which leads to Political Science, which leads to Marxism. Essentially, Rationalism holds that everything can be reduced to Physics first principles. Kuhn showed that this view does not match what we know of the history of science and Feyerabend showed that Rationalism must fail because science cannot be reduced to any particular method.

          Popper attacked Marx’s claims of having a “scientific basis.” I have discussed elsewhere the problems with the word “science,” which primarily has rhetorical usage and meaning. E.g., “My ideas are scientific and my opponent’s ideas are pseudo-science.”

            Rationalism is a methodology not an ideology. Marxism attempted to borrow the mantle and prestige of rationalism, but was itself irrational both in theory and in practice.

          2. theasdgamer

            Rationalism elevated a particular method by claiming that that method was The Scientific Method and therefore that no other method was used by science. Therefore Rationalism is an epistemological ideology. Of course, actually science ignored Rationalism by and large. Rationalism mostly had an impact on philosophy and on education where it used rhetoric about “pseudo-science” to attack those it considered heretics. Rationalists wouldn’t know science from sausage.

        They already control the world — as evidenced by the fact that they are controlling the vast majority of people who are buying the covid lie completely — and not opposing the endless lockdowns. Most people fully support lockdowns because they are ‘necessary’

        As a number of virologists have emphatically stated — these vaccines are purposed to create deadly variants — and these deadly variants will be ‘bio-weapons’

        Now why would ‘they’ want to create bio-weapons?

        The Big Picture is peak oil. And we are beyond that….(check North Sea oil – it’s down 2/3s…). America’s Saudi Arabia – shale — has also peaked… so many fields have peaked….

        Once peak oil is surpassed the end of civilization follows. Starvation – Disease – Violence… and ultimately extinction.

        If the end game is extinction — why not end life before the suffering begins?

        Covid is most definitely made in a lab and released on purpose. It is being used to scare 8B people into taking a vaccine that will exterminate all of us.

        The vaccine is a gesture of kindness. It’s not dissimilar to putting down a dog that is suffering … but doing it just before the serious suffering begins.

        Fauci is vilified wrongly. He is doing a very difficult job. How would you like to be the front man for a project that involves killing 8B people?

        It must be so difficult having to get in front of the cameras and lie about this. But at the end of the day — he and every single leader on the planet who is helping execute this act of kindness — know that there is no other choice.

        You either kill 8B people in a compassionate manner — or they kill (and eat) each other as they fight to stay alive.

        All options would have been examined years ago. And the Covid Plan (Compassionate Extinction Plan) would have been determined to be the best option.

          My fuel consumption reduced by 50% or more during the lockdown – without really trying.
          It appears that you discount the proposition put forward by Thomas Gold that oil supply is endless and not a fossil fuel.
          And you appear not to be cognisant of the laws of supply & demand.

            You seem to believe that your personal fuel consumption is more important than that of civilisation as a whole, which has hardly dropped at all from pre-covid levels.

            “oil supply is endless and not a fossil fuel.” and the Earth truly is flat.

            “And you appear not to be cognisant of the laws of supply & demand.”
            I am not too sure you are. We are approaching the ‘Seneca Cliff’ of global oil production, whereby oil production is going to collapse because all the easy, cheap to produce oil has almost gone. Then there is the minor issue that most of the big oil companies are trying to avoid bankruptcy because they need oil prices at over $100/barrel to develop the remaining smaller / offshore / lower quality / more polluted fields but receiving much less, whilst the economy needs much lower oil prices.

            The global economy and financial system is on its knees and cannot cope with higher oil prices. Seems to me that people in general can only take so much reality, and they would rather not know about the end of oil, and all that that implies.

          2. Fast Eddy

            Technically … we will never come close to running out of oil.

            What will happen (is happening) is that the oil that remains cannot be extracted because it is economically not viable to do so.

            Shale has lost $300B on a trillion dollar investment. The only way shale was able to happen is because the costs were offset by remaining lower cost conventional oil + low interest rates.

            Recall $147 oil in 2007 – soon after we had GFC. What happened was we ran into a supply-demand mismatch. When demand outstrips supply prices take off.

            Shale was a stop gap measure to mitigate this mismatch.

            But when shale peaked in 2019…. the PTB were facing a similar problem as in 2007 — but this time there was no alternative oil source…. total oil peaked.

            The PTB then proceeded to launch Covid — and used that as an excuse to reduce our oil burn…. (can’t reduce too much or we collapse)….

            That has bought them time – to roll out what I refer to as the CEP – Compassionate Extinction Plan. Which of course involves the injections and killing everyone before civilization collapses.

            I would note that most OECD countries have injected their at-risk populations… so if they were to unlock now – almost nobody would die (the injections are 95% effective… so we are told)…

            But instead we are seeing lockdown extensions — and new lockdowns — hmmmm…

            The MSM is not asking why — nor are opposition politicians…

            Hmmmm…..

          3. Sasha

            I don’t know about the rest of the world but United States is gradually opening up. Moscow has been open for a while and the rest of Russia as well. In my opinion, this extinction plan is a figment of your imagination but only time will tell…

          4. Fast Eddy

            A couple of thoughts on this…

            Many countries have been ‘gradually opening up’ … only to be slammed shut again… all you need is another wave of fake PCR tests and ‘the dreaded variants’ and…..

            The US has a high percentage of CovIDIOTS already injected …. pretty much everyone who is willing to be injected has been… if Team Bossche is correct … there are more than enough people with the leaky injection in them in the US to contribute to the emergence of Devil Covid(s)… perhaps it is also better if you allow the CovIDIOTS to interact with each other so that the variants have a better chance to mix and match and breed and achieve Marek’s Status?

            Impossible to know what the strategy is … but one thing I do know with 100% certainty… these injections are not purposed to keep people safe… there is sinister intent.

            If they were about stopping death — they’d be given only to at-risk individuals… and certainly not children.

          5. Sasha

            There’s a difference in thinking that children are being injected because some people are incompetent, scared or greedy versus thinking that they’re being injected because Bill Gates has decided that you shouldn’t live anymore.

          6. Fast Eddy

            I’ve made my position clear a few times on this …. Bill Gates may have a hand in this … but it’s a benevolent hand… consider that just about every leader on the planet from dictators to snowflakes (Arden/Trudeau) are no pushing back… nor is the MSM… nor are business leaders…

            Seems the are convinced there is a good reason to kill all of us. (see peak oil)

            Respnse to Doug Aberdeen on June 1, 2021
            My fuel consumption reduction is indicative of what can easily be achieved.
            Flat earth comment is kick to touch effort we presume. I admit I dont know enough about his theory but if it can be kicked to touch so be it using logic & rational discussion so be it.
            The capitalist system with endless growth & profits is a model that could never last. But scarcity is usually matched by higher prices generating an attraction towards increased production, exploration or alternative sources of energy be it solar (I hav currently scalding hot water) or simply reduced consumption and greater efficiencies.

          Why is this cannibal killing not happening in areas where there is real famine, and people are starving? Or is it happening and not broadcast on MSM?

            In the irish famine, the curious well heeled in their tours of affected areas noted the wretched cowering in cabins, forlorn & waiting to be taken. One million died, in huts, in fields and in the notorious workhouses, some of fever, some on the roadside with grass and such in their mouths.
            Not commonly known but the famine was preceded by a storm of apparently hurricane force that devastated boats, buildings and crops in 1839, known as “an gaoth mór” – the big wind, which rendered the rural population ill prepared for the subsequent crop devastation from blight.
            Climate change you might argue is not new – however there are no reports of cannibalism.

          Two questions immediately present themselves:
          1)How could anyone think they have the authority to make such a decision?
          2)Are they included?
          The obvious answer to #2 makes it clear that they don’t care at all about #1, and that this is pure mass murder that makes Hitler, Stalin and Mao all look like complete amateurs.

            But there isn’t:

            All in all, this year has seen new discoveries of nearly 8 billion barrels of oil equivalent, compared to 10 billion barrels of oil equivalent discovered last year.

            But what’s most striking is that new discoveries aren’t even close to keeping pace with the loss of conventional resources. According to Rystad, the current resource replacement ratio for conventional resources is only 16 percent. In other words, only one barrel out of every six consumed is being replaced with new resources.

        It’s interesting that when you look at Death’s per million population (worldometers.info) that the USA has 1,831, UK 1,873, Italy, 2088, France, 1,672, However, looking at East/South East Asia which is densely populated and arguably with less efficient healthcare in some countries you have 1/10 of the number of deaths. Who can explain this? Philippines 188 (111M), Indonesia 183 (276M), Japan 102 (126M), Malaysia 83 (32M), South Korea 38 (51M) Hong Kong 28 (7.5M) , Thailand 14 (70M), Singapore 6 (6M), Taiwan 5 (24M), China: 3 (1,439M), Vietnam 0.5 (98M).

          Less aged populations, cross-immunity from SARs and MERs, better metabolic health, possibly climatic factors. With this whole thing being so politicalised, people like to look for policy factors, but they don’t correlate.

          Milan Bukvic: It is indeed interesting. Part of the explanation, at least in the U.S., is a gross inflation of the numbers. According to the CDC, only 5% of those officially listed as Covid deaths were previously healthy people, so it is conceivable that the death rate per million here is closer to 90, in the same ballpark as those Asian countries. Part of it also may reflect the percentage of the population with obesity and/or T2 diabetes, which is surely much lower in those countries.

          The crazy thing is that many of the people in those countries are probably a darn sight healthier than we are in the West. Not only have they already been exposed to most pathogens which has built up their immune systems from birth, in general they consume diets with little to no nutrient devoid or denatured processed, refined, pasteurised, homogenised or generally mucked-about-with (pseudo) food. Few walk around with teeth full of mercury that binds with sulphur & breaks its other important sulphur conversions or affinities in the body. Many have never had vaccines or other immune busting protocols or drugs, such as antibiotics. Many also do hard, physical work that helps them sweat out toxins.

          For all our health advances in the West, we are a very sick society – & getting sicker by the minute.

          Mine is a guess: possibly population-wide immunity due to exposure to earlier respiratory viruses, such as Sars. Also less preponderance of “Western” conditions such as diabetes and obesity, which weaken immune systems.

      I took a quick look at the “Rational Wiki” you referenced. On the wiki talk page, “they” refer to people who follow your blog as “his army of nut jobs”. Frankly, I’m done interacting with these censorious types and resisted the temptation to post anything on that wiki. The best thing we can all do is ignore them.

      Personally, I’m pleased with your emphasis on maintaining health through proper nutrition. If that makes me a “nut job”, so be it. Thanks for being so outspoken about the covid madness. I know professionals who speak out about it are assaulted from all directions. As you say, science has died, to be replaced by the new religion of “scientism”.

        ‘Nut Jobs’? For daring to read an alternative opinion? So, in order not to be defined as a nut job, one has to fully accept opinions and theories (presented as facts) from just one source, and suspend evaluation and critical thinking. The science is settled, there is no debate. I wish life were so easy, unfortunately I can’t stop my brain from working no matter how hard I try.

          I liked your comment. I don’t always agree on what Dr Kendrick says either but I like it that he questions things and tries to back it with science and not anecdotes. I follow most of the advice on cholesterol from Kendrick but follow a whole food plant based diet which he doesn’t agree on and sometimes makes derogatory comments about vegans, but hey I can take that because we must question everyone. We get it wrong sometimes and sometimes we get it right.
          I at the moment think I’ve got it right with the cholesterol thing and the whole food plant based diet. It works for me but I have an open mind and will not castigate you for giving me your opinion and offering me device. We are in great danger of not standing up for ourselves.

            That’s exactly why I prefer to distance myself from the ‘vegan’ label & just say that I consume a Whole Food Plant Based diet. There is often a huge chasm between the two. Plant-based (especially very low fat) works heaps better for me too, having faithfully persevered with
            High Fat Low Carb for over 8 years until my struggling digestion finally refused to digest animal protein, regardless of what I tried, and sent my insulin resistance into orbit! Not even heaps of insulin would get my blood sugar down. It was exceedingly scary.

            Within 4 weeks on the very low fat plant-based regime I not only had started to lose some of the extra weight I’d gained on HFLC, but my insulin sensitivity returned & I had to cut my insulin intake by more than half. HFLC did not even attempt to reverse my Diabetes, far from it, it merely maintained it by keeping my sugar intake very low. I’ve gone from needing 50+ insulin units plus Metformin on HFLC, to just 10-15 units & no Metformin (& it’s still dropping) on very low/no fat Plant Based, despite eating heaps of potatoes every day (SpudFit). And the weight I’ve been struggling to lose for 50 years is finally melting away.

            Having bought the T-shirt when it comes to HFLC, I’ve experienced both sides – and have learned to my cost that it’s fats that drive insulin resistance. I loved HFLC because it gave me permission to indulge my love of fatty foods – but it did me absolutely no favours in the long run…..and I’m not alone.

      There’s a group of us that are on the same page as you and many others I might add, however we are attacked, verbally and ridiculed for questioning the corruption, sorry narrative?? If you are an independent logical free thinker there is only one conclusion, we are being lied to and manipulated and anyone that swims against the tide is shut down and their voice doesn’t get heard. Hopefully one day soon the truth will out. Keep up the crusade keep the faith.

        The lies from Fauci are cascading from FOI emails. Not only was he in favour of gain of function, he funded the Wuhan Institute research into it. The lies about the vaccines are becoming more apparent too, about their safety, efficacy, effectiveness, especially their safety, or lack thereof. The lies about how dangerous the virus really is will be the next to go. Australian experts, many of them, are questioning the hysterical reaction to the latest “outbreak”. Of note, the ground zero case was in the community for a month before the infections began to be noticed.

        I really think that the Indian variant could be the beginning of the end. Not particularly infectious but doesn’t seem to be so dangerous. The UK had its first Covid death free day this week, even though the variant has been active there for weeks. Hopefully it’s as contagious and as deadly as a common cold virus and will give immunity against the other variants for those who don’t already have it.

    Amen Malcolm – as a fellow GP I too have now fully given up on any belief whatsoever in what we have been told literally about anything. It is pretty sad when you feel most of your job is to protect your patients from the mainstream medical advice….
    For those that are interested and can still stomach Facebook do look up JohnDeesAlmanac- he is a former consultant analyst for the NHS and boy is he unearthing some dirt -you might be interested to know that the daily totals for PCR testing have had negative numbers inputted for 18 days in 2021 (has to be deliberate and presumably is being done to increase the reported rate of positive results…)

        The chairman of the Western Basque College of Biology, J.A. Etxebarria, has also been very vocal about the (ab-)use of covid tests the way they are being used (incorrectly, it seems, but technical issues I have some difficulty discerning). I was skeptical of such claims at first (I have generally good and justified faith on genetic testing technology) but I became persuaded eventually, more so when (very scientifically) the late President of Tanzania (J. Mafuguli) had some random non-human samples subject to testing that gave positive results and were fruit and animal material.

      Jean,

      Spot on about the public. Part of the problem is that the governments official strategy of scaring the public has, unfortunately, worked well enough with enough people to make those who do protest look like people who have taken leave of their senses. Facilitated by parts of the press by either not reporting or labelling protesters as anti- vaxxers, conspiracy theorists etc.

      Fear impairs cognitive functioning and it is very hard to unscare people where a mass campaign has been purposefully inflicted on the entire nation. One of my friends is a retired medical scientist and she has only just come out of her absolute terror – in spite of having many contacts still in medicine who do not accept the official line.

      It is unethical to use scare as a deliberate intervention/tactic and I wonder if any of the psychologists involved in advising the government/shaping the response to Covid ever pointed this out or were they simply ignored. Which is what this government appears to do every time someone comes up with something important but which inconveniently contradicts part of their narrative or might get in the way of exploiting the pandemic financially.

    This (from wiki! 😦 ):
    A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. . . . An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarized with the ideas from the beginning: another instance of the fact that the future lies with the youth.

      I also thought of Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions from the 1970s. Kuhn basically proposed that scientific orthodoxy only dies as each generation of scientists raised on that orthodoxy dies off. That is a gross oversimplification of Kuhn’s work, but the book is worth reading in light of current events.

    Apply that retrospectively and there would have been no “pandemic”. Apply it now, and the case numbers for the vaccinated make the vaccines look incredibly effective.

    Meanwhile, the utterly hypocritical Premier and CMO of Queensland have refused to take the jab so far. And even when we see the inevitable photo-op of them being syringed, after 14 months of lies and deceptions I won’t believe it contains anything other than saline.

The link makes it clear that the methodology has changed, the (undated) printed part relates to the change in the threshold. Together they ensure the reported data for vaccine cases will be infinitesimal compared to non-vaccinated cases, where the anything goes criteria still apply.

    From the FDA website : “For FDA to issue an EUA, there must be no adequate, approved, and available alternative to the candidate product for diagnosing, preventing, or treating the disease or condition.” EUA is Emergency Use Authorisation. And so for the vaccines to be authorised for use at the end of 2020, all knowledge of other treatments/preventions had to be suppressed, There we have it.

They are even thinking of having a vaccine passport for interstate travel within the country. They are repeating the same nonsense – these vaccines are very safe so just get your jab! I have signed a petition to stop mandatory vaccine passport within Australia. Tyranny reigns here. As soon as one person tests positive they lock down the city or parts of the state that this occurred. Also ramp up the fear – you will die if you get Covid.

          The blog author might consider posting ridiculous press releases (MSM articles) from the Ministry of Truth … that we could hack apart and ridicule…

          The blog author might assume a pseudonym and participating anonymously in the hacking and slashing… I’d recommend making use of a VPN such as https://strongvpn.com/ which could be used when posting the anonymous comments … making it difficult to connect the author to those comments…

          That said … this plan has been hatched with cooperation from the highest levels of all governments… so I will assume that they have ways of thwarting VPN anonymity…. so this may be futile…

          I suppose if Bossche and Montagnier are correct this is all moot — there must be a method to the madness… and an End Game coming soon…. so it probably does not matter what one does at this point… this ship is going down.

      Here in New Zealand the government has just been taken to court to challenge the legality of the vaccine rollout in this country. The plaintiffs argued that the rollout breached S23 of the Medicines Act, wherein it states that an emergency use medication could only be authorised for use for a limited number of patients. The plaintiffs argued that the entire population of New Zealand over the age of 16 was not a “limited number of patients” and the judge agreed, thereby coming to the conclusion that the government’s actions were “problematic” i.e. unlawful. However, she did not go further than this, other than to reject the call for an order to stop the vaccine rollout. And the NZ government’s response? To immediately (and I mean immediate – it was the very next day!) change the law so that their actions would no longer be unlawful. It beggars belief. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/covid-19-coronavirus-govt-makes-urgent-law-change-after-high-court-ruling-on-legality-of-vaccine-rollout/IWB53LM2XNNFMOK44DSGN66JEU/?fbclid=IwAR2OZwhqZk23OzCfmLvq7L2chMQYWMeeT07m4WAXKSHg3x0Ke953oi5VAKc

      The parallels between ‘the science’, role of experts, bullying of any who disagree, silencing of dissent, strict control of what people may hear/read, the same political and vested interests are too apparent with the current panicdemic to be coincidence. In my view the last 20 years of climate ‘science’ and its High Priests and media stooges, the telling us what to eat, how much to drink, and what our waist measurement should be, what light bulbs we could have, etc was the proving ground for what worked best to manipulate people and how susceptible/gullible/easily panicked they are.

      Operation CoVid was, I suppose, the logical end-run, an all out final assault on Human Rights and Human dignity, Human malleability to reach the ultimate goal – the Great Reset, unbridled power and authority of a new aristocracy over the Masses, is now cleared for lift-off.

    Thanks for a very sobering article.

    On the bright side (!!!)…. this obscene situation cannot go on for much longer… as both Bossche and Montagnier state (and they claim many others with expertise in this area agree – but who are unwilling to speak publicly — not that it matters because how does one ‘go public’ when the MSM refuses to listen) that the vaccines are fostering variants… and that these variants will mutate to the point where they become bio-weapons… and it seems they will exterminate us.

    It’s what one does … when one is running out of oil… (did anyone actually think the BBC and CNN would run headlines ‘OIL HAS PEAKED – DOOMSDAY IMMINENT’)

    One also cannot allow anyone in a position of authority to gain traction with a counter narrative. They must be threatened… ridiculed … silenced (in no particular order)…

    One would want to eschew the scientific method because facts and logic make lying very difficult – and it pisses off the PR Team.

    If GVB and Montagnier are correct then we have no doubt already crossed the Rubicon… there are over a billion people with the jab… and apparently each one of them is a potential breeding ground for Devil Covid (or whatever they will call the evil offspring)…

    Which of the billion + will deliver the deviant? Tomorrow – next week – June? Exciting times.

    BTW – GVB has indicated on his Linkedin profile that he is dedicated all of his time to researching the Covid/vaccines issue…. now that’s walking the walk!

    Although I suspect he’d have difficulty getting a job manning the counter at a pharmacy given that his vaccine views are toxic.

    Perhaps Mike Yeadon might join forces with Bossche and fund his research … word is that he sold his biotech company for around USD1 billion … surely he had a solid piece of equity in that business.. and has a little loose change to spare.

    That said, one does not really want to get on the radar of these folks who are running this operation … these are the same people ramming the ‘vaccines’ into children… and there is no stopping them.

    And they should not be stopped. 8B people without electricity, food, medicine, petrol or security… would be a very bad outcome. God speed Matt Hancock… (even though you are a wanker)

        Good cop bad cop both seek to use your mind to induce you to incriminate yourself.
        Its all very clever.
        Masking a private agenda as ‘concern’, can take opportunity from the current terrain of vaccine fear, so as to divert it to consent to a biotech state via a seemingly salvatory ruse relative to those who care not for ‘covid’ but are fearful of medical tyranny enforced at the end of a needle.

        Both cops are heavily invested in genetics as a reset based on a virological definition of life – particularly non compliant humans.

        I have every reason to hold both as highly flawed theories that are nonetheless heavily invested in; financially, reputationally and as means of control over minds and funding.

        Human thinking can generate private realities that are in conflict with truth – that these are unworkable is part of the opportunity to explore and experience and grow.
        We can also paint ourselves into a corner from which ultimately only death can save or release us. This used to be stated as the wages of sin. Private reality set at war on truth is where all that is true is sacrificed to save the idol, model, system, control-narrative – etc.

        That would certainly make sense with a lab-created virus, whether or not it was created as a bioweapon. If SARs CoV-2 was intended as a bioweapon, it’s turned out to be a pretty lousy one, with its distinct lack of capacity to kill healthy young people. Great psycho-weapon though.

    I support you in what you do,Malcolm, and would stand up in front of the GMC and say so. Most people are blinded by “science” and you are not. We need sensible debate. We need all sides of the argument. In my opinion, you do not tell people what to do or what to think, but point out incongruity, expose unimpressive statistics, and call out bad behaviour. Why shouldn’t you? You’re careful and you do your own fact checking.
    Then it is up to your reader, having taken on board everything they have read, seen and heard, to do what they want.

    Malcolm, I am very sorry to hear that complaints have/are being made against you – not only for the huge amount of time this will have taken up but also the stress caused to you. This demonstrates that the crucial and necessary abilities to question and keep an open mind when presented with something different from the “official” fear based narrative on Covid (now just about set in stone) are being undermined and disregarded. Judgemental attacks have become the norm. That is the real scarey stuff.

    Thank you for updating us on what’s going on.

    “Let us suppose, therefore, that the government is entirely at one with the people, and never thinks of exerting any power of coercion unless in agreement with what it conceives to be their voice. But I deny the right of the people to exercise such coercion, either by themselves or by their government. The power itself is illegitimate. The best government has no more title to it than the worst. It is as noxious, or more noxious, when exerted in accordance with public opinion, than when in or opposition to it. If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind. Were an opinion a personal possession of no value except to the owner; if to be obstructed in the enjoyment of it were simply a private injury, it would make some difference whether the injury was inflicted only on a few persons or on many. But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”

    Canada could see a resurgence of COVID-19 cases even if the country manages to fully vaccinate a majority of its population, according to experts.

    University of Saskatchewan epidemiologist Nazeem Muhajarine told Global News on Friday that the possibility of new or existing variants of COVID-19 spreading throughout Canada could lead to a possible resurgence in new cases.

    As an example, Muhajarine pointed to the small East African island nation of Seychelles which had at least 60 per cent of its population fully vaccinated with either the Sinopharm or AstraZeneca vaccines.

    With the majority of that country’s population having already had two shots, the island nation decided to open its borders to tourism — an industry it heavily relied on. That opening, according Muhajarine, eventually resulted in another surge of the virus that was “driven by variants.”

    “So you know, we are seeing these cases of countries seeing a resurgence of the virus, and they in fact have lots of people fully vaccinated — and we will see that too, we will see that going forward,” he said.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/7883901/covid-19-resurgence-full-vaccination/

    Oh — so Bossche and Montagnier are correct — the vaccines are creating variants….

    1. Jan Dawe

      Fast Eddy, they will blame the unvaccinated for it, never the vaccine. They will say all these unvaccinated people are causing the variants and that if every single one was vaccinated there wouldn’t be any variants. Dead wrong, of course, but they are insane and uneducated and unfortunately will not listen to any dissenters no matter how expert they are, as we have seen already with Dr Bakdi and Dr mike Yeardon who are now getting censored for telling the truth.

I really hope you can continue in spite of the horrendous opposition you must face, and will continue to face. People like me who prefer to make up our own minds and have refused the vaccinations are enormously strengthened to know that we are not alone. It feels very bleak and at times frankly frightening.

    These are definitely worrying times for free speech and the ability to raise an alternative point of view……unfortunately I’ve found it is not just the non-scientist do-gooders who won’t open their minds.

    Many of my university peers and lecturers with whom I am still in contact, are proving to be the most resistant to discussing new or different ideas, let alone being open-minded to reviewing new data. They are pompous, arrogant and sarcastically rude in their instant dismissal.

    And I find Vegans are some of the angriest and aggressive people that I have come across – even though they claim those characteristics to be the preserve of “meat-eaters”.

    Having previously worked for many years in medical education and communications for the pharmaceutical industry (primarily nutrition and cardiovascular diseases) – I, more than many people, have seen multiple strategies and tactics employed, and as a result, I have personally become more aware and open-minded than most people….. many of whom are naive enough to disbelieve the tactics that can be used.

    Many people I talk to personally encourage me to start my own blog – but when simple, even banal posts on my Facebook page are censored I wonder whether it is indeed possible in the current environment.

    So keep up your work – There are undoubtedly many unqualified people trying to spread clearly ridiculous rumours and dis-information, which doesn’t help – but it appears they are the same type of people who are monitoring and censoring those who have the right qualifications.

      In fact, Gayle, you have much more control over your own blog and what you say in it. Unfortunately it does entail a good deal of routine work – unless you have friends who are willing to do system management, security, moderation, etc.

      The huge monolithic corporations like Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and Wikipedia are a very large part of the problem. Our first step should be to avoid them entirely. (And I am aware that Wikipedia is ostensibly a voluntary organisation that does not make a profit. However I would be willing to bet that quite a few Wikipedia editors make a nice living from writing stuff that rich people like to see, and suppressing stuff that they dislike).

    I feel some compassion for the swathes of unquestioning public because for many they’ve not had many dealings with how science and medicine works against the majority. This is not my first Rodeo as you know and so, when Covid reared it’s collapsing body on the ‘leaked’ clips of CPP controlled Wuhan, I knew instinctively something was afoot. Been a very tough year but pleased to say my 99 year old grandmother is still refusing the jab and still doing great. And best of all, when I told my GP I was ‘pausing’ my jab status until it’s completed the trials, he was in total agreement saying we cannot possibly know the long term effects, if any, at this point. My immediate family hold the same position and I’d wager there is a substantial minority refusing EUA medical treatments.

    I like long pauses and am more than happy with Quercetin, N Acetyl Cysteine, D, C, Zinc and Magnesium.

    I have extensively researched the HPV vaccine adverse reactions over the last 10 years since my healthy 12 year old daughter had life threatening and life changing reactions. I had my eyes opened when I found that the MHRA and other health agencies provided totally different responses when asked Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests or Parliamentary Questions (with lots of help from a lady in the House of Lords). Manufacturer’s own data was also much more helpful than national and international health agencies. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in the USA has also been useful as has the WHO Global Database of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) at http://www.vigiaccess.org, albeit very untransparent compared with VAERS, which is very transparent. Both MHRA and Vigiaccess acknowledge just 2-10% of ADRs are reported, whereas peer-reviewed research articles indicate only 1% of adverse vaccine reactions are reported to VAERS. I am convinced that this 1% of reporting for vaccine adverse reactions would also be an over-estimate for the MHRA Yellow Card reporting and Vigiaccess. My own daughter was seen by 27 doctors before eventually one said “I suppose we had better raise a Yellow Card”. I now represent over 650 similarly affected families here in the UK as the Vice Chair of the UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters (AHVID). All of our families have similarly injured daughters, and now also sons, and most are treated terribly by the NHS “it must be a coincidence, it can’t be the vaccine because it is SAFE & EFFECTIVE and has undergone extensive clinical trials.” I explain that so have at least 20 other vaccines in the UK that have subsequently been withdrawn from teh market due to excessive serious adverse reactions when rolled out. For the HPV vaccine it isn’t even effective at reducing cervical cancer since young UK ladies in the 20-24 age group (highly vaccinated cohort) have seen an increase of 94% in diagnoses of cervical cancer. Older generations who missed out on mass vaccination continue to benefit from a reduction in cases since they tend to continue to rely on effective Pap screening. This is published by Cancer Research UK on their website – although they have now grouped the 20-24 year olds with the 0-19 year olds to hide the huge increase! This phenomena has occured in all countries that have introduced HPV vaccine – joint research of governments own statistics with French consultants Gerard & Nilcole Delepine has confirmed this which is published in their book ‘Gardasil. Faith and propaganda versus hard evidence’.
    My research, involving emminent doctors and scientists around the world and thousands of affected families, including those whose children have died, indicate that the HPV vaccine caused more deaths and ADRs than all other vaccines – until experimental Covid-19 vaccines arrived. In just 4 months more deaths and ADRs have been reported than all of the other vaccines combined during all of the decades that the VAERS and Yellow Card reporting systems have been operating. Yellow Cards are reporting 1,180 deaths and over 820,000 ADRs, some might be a coincidence but the reporting rate is only around 1%. WHO ADRs reported on Vigiacess are nearing 10,000 deaths in 862,301 reports and again the reporting rate is only around 1%.
    The public around the world have been brainwashed by the mainstream media, fed by the WHO and governments manipulated by Big Pharma. Boris made a usual presentation at 5pm on Tuesday a couple of weeks ago. He was asked “now that we have feed-back on adverse reactions to the vaccines and some hospitalisations, how are we assessing the situationand taking appropriate action?” His reponse was bemusing, something along the lines “I’m not sure, have there been any ADRs, I suppose there must have been, but I hope not, I will ask the nurse to answer”. He was accompanied by a leading, enthusiastic nurse who replied “of course we collect and analyse the ADR reports each week to ensure everything is OK and going to plan”!
    Everybody needs to open their eyes and do their own serious research and not just believe the mainstream media and government brainwashing. The truth must prevail – thank you Dr Kendrick for being so brave..

It urges on us a delicate balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous sceptical scrutiny of everything – new ideas and established wisdom.

        There is no need for Malcolm or any of his readers to provide an alternative for how this emergency could have been better dealt with – it is already in existence, published ten years ago and openly available on the UK official government website. It is the 2011 pandemic preparedness strategy, linked here for your convenience https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/213717/dh_131040.pdf
        All they needed to do was implement it. This was informed by years of planning by experts in the field and endorsed by the WHO. It might surprise people to learn that there are no lockdowns, no border restrictions, no masks in the community, no quaranting of the healthy. Why? Because 10 years ago there was no evidence to support these measures and the government were happy to say so. As Malcolm has already touched on, that is the biggest tragedy of all – that plan was thrown in the bin so that we could conduct the biggest, most disastrous public health experiment in living memory. And they have the gall to refer to people like Malcolm as reckless.

          Fair point. But I, too, feel there is a different tone to Dr. Kendrick’s blogs on this issue. I have always found his other writing to be so positive that it is disappointing to find his blogs about this to have no positive aspect. On heart/cholesterol he is critical of the official position but then gives useful advice and alternative ideas that are positive. It is the tone of these blogs that is different. I sympathise because he is clearly at the end of his tether with the situation and I wouldn’t want to lose his input.

        Sasha: The latest ad hoc propaganda from the CDC is to question whether natural immunity lasts as long as vaccine-induced immunity (they are urging everyone, whether recovered or not, to get the jab). A patent absurdity, since the “clinical trials” are not designed to assess immunity, and there is not, and won’t be, any active surveillance system to answer this question. Yet the CDC is happy to agree that natural immunity to measles is lifelong. Well, maybe not happy, but they do admit it.

The CDC simply cannot be trusted, so tied to industry interests that they are. They use weasel words to distract, to avoid examining evidence contrary to industry interests. Natural immunity simply must be superior. Millions of years of evolution and the intermingling of human populations have led to the development of a robust immune system as we, and all other life forms, exist in a vast sea of microbes, all the time, face mask or not. We cannot survive without them, without these microbes. Good metabolic health is the key to swimming in this sea successfully. This comes from good-quality food, clean water and air, sun exposure, and good social relationships. Medicine has finally gone completely off the rails with this godawful mess politicians and bureaucrats have created. In my opinion the damage they have done to social relationships alone is worse than any viral risk, and putting the fear of God into an entire generation of children warrants a criminal tribunal.

The Powers That Be are acutely aware of this and there are no solutions other than that we will all have to live more simply and consume less by choice or wait till it is forced upon us by circumstances. Those in power will do anything to retain it. The COVID debacle is just an example. I applaud the references you’ve given and there are many more.

          Interestingly … nearly a decade ago I began this journey with a google search trying to determine if a no growth economy was feasible … and that landed me on this outstanding site — where I learned that a no growth economy is referred to as a steady state economy

          https://ourfiniteworld.com/2011/02/21/there-is-no-steady-state-economy-except-at-a-very-basic-level/

          As I have posted previously, I believe covid is man made and released on purpose… and it is a response to peak oil.

          The global economy has been put into a de-growth mode … work from home … reduced travel etc… are all targeting oil consumption …. if we do not reduce then we get skyrocketing fuel costs and that tears the economy to pieces

          According to the OECD Economics Department and the International Monetary Fund Research Department, a sustained $10 per barrel increase in oil prices from $25 to $35 would result in the OECD as a whole losing 0.4% of GDP in the first and second years of higher prices. http://www.iea.org/textbase/npsum/high_oil04sum.pdf

          Imagine the impact of $200 oil… and that is what you get when oil peaks… it just keeps going up till the engine blows….and then it collapses and there will be no oil because BAU has exploded.

          The PTB are playing goldilocks … too much activity and oil prices take off… too little and we hit stall speed and collapse (like riding too slowly on a bicycle… you tip over)

          But this is a temporary situation … the PTB can only maintain this ‘hibernation’ for so long… eventually something will bust… and the ball of yarn unravels… how long is difficult to say…

          It does seem that this is the determinant… if shale production collapses that pulls many millions of barrels of supply out of the system … and that would starve the global economy of oxygen… killing it

          Shale binge has spoiled US reserves, top investor warns. Financial Times.

          He said operators had carried out “massive fracks” that created “artificial, permanent porosity”, inadvertently reducing the pressure in reservoirs and therefore the available oil.
          The comments will cause alarm in the shale patch, given the crucial role of investors such as QEP in financing the onshore American oil business.

          http://energyskeptic.com/2021/the-end-of-fracked-shale-oil/

          So what is the end game?

          Let’s be frank here. We need cheap plentiful oil otherwise civilization ends. BAU is not possible without growth.

          So we are on borrowed time right now. Civilization is about to end – permanently.

          We are being exterminated – to head off suffering on a level never before seen in the history of the planet.

            yes… and I am still awaiting the logical rebuttal to my theory that Covid and the Vaccines are a response to the fact that oil is well past peak now.

            That will not be forthcoming because it cannot be forthcoming. Peak oil is fact.

            Nobody will have a go at this… in fact it’s ignored .. kinda like Sweden’s success with Covid is ignored…

            What amazes me is that there are so many ‘great thinkers’ on this blog … yet the best anyone can come up with is ‘their’ evil’… or ‘they’re corrupt’ or they ‘want to chip us and control us’ or ‘big pharma wants to make money’

            ‘We need to fight back!!!!’

            Yep… every leader on the planet is on board with a, b or c…. and every MSM outlet is dancing to the tune.

            Good luck with ‘fighting back’ You are drop in the ocean… and you are up against a massive PR Machine … so believe you me – I know a little about PR — and you will not win that battle. They are laughing at Yeadon and GVB… this is Mike Tyson vs Pee Wee Herman

            So where does that leave you? Ahhh…. revolution???? Ok – who’s first to pick up a gun???

            The anti-terrorist special forces would be on you within 5 minutes… with the complicity of your neighbours who would rush to the first to call 911 and report you.

            Now why would ‘they’ want to unleash the ‘unthinkable’… a ‘bioweapon’ on all of us? Why would ‘they’ destroy lives with these endless lockdowns? Why would they smash millions of business?

            What’s the end game? I’ve provided a theory that is backed by logic and fact….

            If you think I am wrong feel free to explain why — or better yet…. let’s have your theory.

    “Science” as in the scientific method as described by Richard Feynman has been diminishing for the past 30 years in certain fields. The science being settled, and anyone who dares to disagree is frowned upon, David Bellamy was effectively sacked by the BBC because of his “errant” views on climate change.
    The SARS-CoV-2/CoViD19 has similarly become a victim of the science is settled, listen to the experts.
    The responses to both of these have been based on computer models. Computer models are all well and good but if they fail to hindcast or real data is not used to modify the models then the decisions made are themselves flawed. This is the basis of the scientific method.

    Fortunately, I have retired and do not have the sword of the NMC hanging over me. Replace the Inquisition that threatened Copernicus and Galileo with a fitness to practice hearing at the NMC/GMC/HCPC.

      tldr: There is no single scientific method and philosophy _can_ help liberty.

      Well, I am published on “the scientific method” and in physics, so I _may_ have some useful thoughts. In physics there is not one single “scientific method”, but _many_ scientific methods. Stellar astronomy relies on simple observation using various parts of the e-m spectrum. It also includes computer modelling, which is a totally different method. I did research based on testing an hypothesis, in classical optics. Other people theorized about quantum mechanics and did no hypothesis testing. As part of my work in graduate school I had to derive the Second Law of Thermodynamics from quantum mechanical first principles. (And I still never got my quantum mechanic’s license. ta-dum) I don’t recall ever having read of any physicist having done a RCT. But I only used to read physics journals, so maybe one was published elsewhere. So this RCT business is a little new to me.

      I am not a mathematician, but I am fairly certain that mathematicians do little hypothesis testing in their work.

      I am no biologist, but I wonder whether their discovery of new species of cockroaches requires any hypothesizing.

      Early on, physics and chemistry had great success in discovering knowledge and this built up the reputation of science, so you had passers-by wanting to glom on to the original hard sciences–mathematicians, psychologists, sociologists, economists, and the like. So there was confusion about What Science Is. Then research funding got thrown into the works and everybody and his brother wanted in. Then the Rationalists in Philosophy of Science and Political Science came up with their plan to Modernize everything. We were supposed to Do What We Were Told Because It Was Science! Thank God for Kuhn and Feyerabend who took down the Rationalists and gave us some space to enjoy liberty for a bit. Philosophers of Science protected us to some degree from the tyranny of the early Rationalists. But people want power to dictate what others do and the threat of neo-Rationalists is always lurking.

    How quickly might things change when the dam breaks?

    There are many brave souls trying to get the truths out, but you have to seek them out because even when they have worked out how to circumvent the ‘fact’ checkers and avoid censorship, they have no prominence in search algorithms. One such is Dr Sam Bailey – still putting out youtube videos but also on Odysee.com – from whom I learned (among other things) that there is a huge financial prize being offered for a purified SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    Elsewhere many cash-strapped health authorities are employing various cheap anti-virals and preventing Covid infections in their countries, but this is being actively concealed from richer countries where the influence of those who are heavily invested in the vaccines control the media message.

    But if the message is getting out in those third world and developing countries, surely it cannot be concealed here for much longer?

      If it had not been for Mr Murray’s blog, virtually no one in the entire world would have heard the case for the defence in either the Assange or the Salmond case. The mainstream media issued a continuous stream of biased, prejudicial libel against both defendants.

      Now Mr Murray has been sentenced to prison essentially for letting a little light and fresh air into the fetid dungeons of the Scots “justice system”, as it is laughingly called.

    I am sorry to have to say this, but I am powerfully reminded of some words written by the American science fiction novelist (and naval officer and engineer) Robert A. Heinlein about 50 years ago.

    “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded – here and there, now and then – are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

    “This is known as ‘bad luck'”.

    My two cents: For a long time now, the Western elite have believed, “If only we could rid man of these childish superstitions of Christianity, we could enter a new, glorious age.” So they set about smashing all the institutions of Christianity and now they are smashing all the moral norms of Christianity. The problem is, man is a superstitious beast (even the elite are still human), and we have simply substituted new superstitions. It’s the old Chesterton saw that when you cease to believe in God, you don’t believe in nothing, you believe in anything. We are entering a new dark age because power has been centralised as it was in the old dark ages, not because of any particular beliefs. Any time power is concentrated a dark age will result.

    Brilliant. I do think we are indeed clinging on to a dying religion. We live in a post-trust world. I just scrolled down the list of experts in SAGE, and other related committees as published by gov.uk. Took me several minute just for SAGE. How can they possibly make a decision? They can’t. So one or two loud-mouths call the shops. Ferguson I presume. And there are still people who have not given consent for their details to be published. Who are they, and what are they trying to hide? Bizarre. Then you read the published papers about vaccines and it’s all based on complete guesswork with estimates varying between 24% and 96% effectiveness for existing vaccines against new variants. Why don’t they just say, “Sorry folks, we don’t know very much. So until we do, carry on as normal and accept that life comes with risks. If you want to risk a vaccine, up to you. Just don’t sue us if anything goes wrong.” I’d be fine with that. Keep up the good work Malcolm. Ignore the Wikipedos.

    It’s all true – and thank you for speaking out. Things are very strange now…this may seem like my mind has actually flipped, but having heard about the “magnetic vaccination site” and dismissing it as being too unbelievable (like with “worms in masks”), Mark from “Not on the Beeb” decided to look into it for himself – here’s the video. The bit at 19:05 is particularly interesting as it shows that the magnet flips over before it “sticks”, implying that whatever is there has a magnetic force of its own. At the end, they dismiss the idea that it’s a “chip” of any sort (which is only what the “fact-checkers” seem obsessed with) but what is it? He’s done some research into the possibilities, spoken to Dolores Cahill I believe, and is going to post another video about that today. What is going on?

    This interview with Reiner Fuellmich and Professor Vanessa Schmidt-Krüger points out that the ingredients in the Pfizer vaccine include 3 times more of the mRNA than is necessary. Why would they waste it by injecting 3 times too much?

          About 1900 the governments of the world should have agreed to do what they could to limit population increase. Instead, they staged a series of devastatingly destructive wars, which served further to enrich those who already had far too much.

          As you may be aware, the past year’s antics have transferred several trillion dollars from the world’s poor to the super-rich.

          And the world is still full of half-smart people who point to the “empty” fields and forests and claim that there is plenty of room for more people. Living in towns, of course. None of them have the slightest inkling of how many acres of farmland it takes to feed a single family.

            In 1945, thanks to superhuman efforts, the UK was wholly self-sufficient in food. Today, it imports half of its food.

            What happens if the countries that export their food to us decide to stop doing so?

            That would be a REAL health crisis, with millions starving to death.

          2. Eggs ‘n beer

            Rubbish! Just look at the average shopper in Tesco. The country can easily survive on half rations.

            Long story cut short, my uncle was watching ciné film of streets in Chester c. 1962. “‘Have you noticed, there aren’t any fat people”. Absolutely true. Far fewer cars, zero fatties.

          3. Prudence Kitten

            Eggs’n’Beer, your reply doesn’t make sense to me.

            So there are fat people in Tesco, and they load up their trolleys with items they don’t need and that may be unhealthy. Are you seriously suggesting that they could survive on half the calories they currently get?

            As for those lean people long ago, as you yourself point out they were lean because they took more exercise – not because they ate less. Actually, they probably ate more healthy basic foods such as meat and vegetables.

            As the Jaminets explain in “The Perfect Health Diet”, the greatest single problem of nutrition is how to get all the nutrients the body needs without getting too many calories. That can be done to a certain extent by avoiding empty calories such as sugar; but to do it properly, you need to approach the exercise output of hunter-gatherers. Which would mean, at the least, walking about 20 miles every day plus some hard weight-lifting.

          4. Andrew Makin

            Oh dear. The “calories in, calories out” model. It’s not about calories. Nor can you exercise away the excess weight you carry. As Dr Malhotra says, “You can’t outrun a bad diet”.

            The people in Tesco referred to (a sweepingly description but we know what we mean) are indeed loading up with unhealthy food that will contribute to weight gain refined grains, seed oils, and especially sugar in all its forms.

            Healthy food is far less likely to do so. Unhealthy food stimulates overeating; the hunter gatherers are healthy food when they were hungry, and stopped when they were full. zThere’s the fundamental difference.

          5. Eggs ‘n beer

            And all those addictive food groups that you have just described Tescoperson loading up on are full of what? Empty calories. I stand by my original comment. Well, slightly modified – we can cut our food intake by a third, on average. Which means that Tescopeople at the heavier end of the scale need to cut by more. Please note that I didn’t use the word ‘calories’ in my original post; I’m aware of the issue.

            A decade ago once you were a couple of hours north of Brisbane you would drive for hours and see nothing but sugar cane fields, mills and cute little narrow gauge railways (for moving the cane to the mills). Now it’s in the process of being replaced by other crops, notably macadamia nuts. Replacing bad energy source with good. There is some hope.

          6. Andrew Makin

            The calorie argument is completely discredited, and the “3500 per lb” likewise. There is no basis for these numbers. Check with Zoe Harcombe, who has researched it more than you or I.

    Dear Doctor M. I share your sheer frustration and despair. The dark forces of governmental psy-ops ( including all of those “informative” tv and radio ads) allied to mass media mouth-pieces ( yes, I mean you, Dr. Hillary!) and spineless/ ignorant politicians has sent us all down this cul-de-sac to hell. Now several friends of mine, all medical professionals, have decided that this has gone on too long: their solution? “Just give me the jab so I can get on with my life” ! They have been ground down and are now willing to sell-out. I will not join them. I will not be a guinea-pig in this experimental charade.
    Stay strong, Doc. We WILL overcome, but it just might take a long period of suffering. DO NOT LET THE B’S GET YOU DOWN. X

    Dear Malcolm
    I want to thank you for being one of the small band of medical professionals with enough sense and integrity to ask the questions that needed to be asked.
    I would like to recommend that you read the book ‘Virus Mania- How the Medical Industry Continually Invents Epidemics, Making Billion-Dollar Profits At Our Expense.
    In summary just about everything that modern virology holds to be true is demonstrably false and only exists to give big pharma an opportunity to sell vaccines and antivirals and make massive profits.
    The truth about virology will give you a whole additional set of reasons to despair of modern medicine.
    But as the Russians say ‘Better to be slapped by the truth than kissed by a lie’

    Dr Kendrick,

    I am sorry to hear that you have been attacked in the ways you describe. We are definitely moving back to a pre Enlightenment era.

    I am not a scientist but I learned scientific and statistical method. Very little of what we are being told right now is being validated by true empirical analysis. I too believe almost nothing that the Establishment tells me. There is an all pervasive group think in place.

    The root cause seems to be that the population got petrified in March 2020. Governments and advisers then got petrified too that they would be blamed for deaths. This was aided and abetted by professional doomsayers in the media and public health communities. The Chinese lock downs then coincided with the natural fall away of the viral Gompertz Curve and were hailed as a solution. That occasioned the stupid policies we have inflicted on ourselves since. But it was an unscientific confusion of correlation with causation. The same fallacy has continued and the narrative has become embedded in people’s consciousness, fed by government doubling down on it to justify the measures they took previously.

    There are now deep vested interests that want to keep this going – just like arms manufacturers in war. Ivor Cummins describes this feedback loop on a recent video and I think he nails it. The narrative has also very successfully shifted the burden of proof away from the interventions needing even to be justified. This all creates fertile grounds for non evidence based approaches.

    One day we will all wake up. I am sure of it. It is just a question of how long this takes. But when that moment comes I would hate to be in the shoes of the people who have led all this. Deep down, they sense that this is an edifice that could easily crumble. Hence why raw power is being mobilized against those who dare to dissent.

    Keep up the good work.

You don’t support most of the official response, and you give convincing reasons why not. But have you ever said what you would have done instead? What would have been a better way of dealing with this world emergency? I’m not being facetious or sarcastic Doctor, but what should we have done differently? What could we have done?

      A starting point would be a close investigation of total daily deaths, and comparison to any other year. The photogrpahers of lorry loads of dead bodies being driven away at midnight in Italy have blood on their hands I believe.

      There is a pandemic of only RT-PCR that has no value for diagnosis of any infectious disease. See the first lines of the paper inside the kits.

      After more than 15 months, there are no «new» corona description, isolation, culture, and so on. Nor treatment…

      Few intelligent people correctly ruled this is not a viral pandemic and in their countries there is no plague. No country has numbers to show that an year of excessive deaths had occurred.

    You have a following of people who trust and believe in you and what you say.

    I suggest creating a new peer-review entity, with a clearly stated purpose, which utilizes time-tested, scientifically accepted guidelines to assess the validity of statements/ claims/ results/ conclusions/ etc.

    Although I called it peer-review, it would be more “balanced”-review, as the reviewers would be made up not only of peers, but other disciplines (i.e. statisticians, fact-reviewers, etc.), such that a 360-degree assessment is made.

    Start with smaller items, using the same guidelines, in the same way, for each review. This will help make the entity more credible, therefore more resistant to “integrity attacks”.

    Work out the operating bugs on these smaller items, then move on to bigger items as the entity gains acceptance.

    It is important to identify where in the guidelines, the items failed to follow, and the reasons those guidelines are so important to be followed. (Both yourself and Dr. Rushworth use this “easy to understand” approach). This will help educate the readers so they too, can make informed decisions.

    This takes time and money, so utilize your current followers to help create the entity, get it on a Web site and manage it. (I believe you would be amazed at the talent available to you by your followers.)

    Just a thought … keep up the good work!

    Long time reader of blog and your books. Like your approach but whether you continue is for you and yours to decide. Just this last weekend there was an interview in the Guardian with a writer who said that a journalists job was not to tell people what to think but to tell them what to think about. I think this is relevant to where we are with COVID where we are not to question anything that we are told by experts. Brings to mind Don Henley of the Eagles who in one of his solo songs is disparaging about experts..”.I am an expert because I say I am”. I miss your heart related posts, don’t think you ever really got them finished. Maybe one day, but at least in that area I do think there is some traction as the Diet Heart approach is being widely argued against by enough people to make some changes in how people can choose to approach it.

    Dr K, I am so sorry to read of all the issues you are dealing with. I’m not a GP being attacked but I do feel silenced. On the rare occasions, I question the Government Covid 19 propaganda (and I do not use that word loosely), the response from seemingly educated and rational people is that I am advocating mass murder!

    Once again, I believe that critical thinking needs to be a subject all of its own at school. I have a sibling who is a GP and everything I hear from them leads me to believe that critical thinking was not welcome at Medical School nor in the medical profession these days at all. Unwavering adherence to NICE guidelines is all that can be considered, regardless of whether or not it is in the best medical interests of a patient (the woeful guidance & treatment for people with thyroid issues being my most well-researched point about this).

    I have realised I am more liberal than I had previously thought, for I now very firmly believe that people should be provided with information and then make their own choices, with only the lightest of touches to prevent the utterly stupid from causing harm to others.

    Anyhow, my musings aside, I sincerely hope that all of the flack doesn’t get you down. Your consideration of health issues is so helpful and I always feel better informed after reading your blog posts.

    Hello Dr. Kendrick,

    If you want to change course, please advocate for the care and treatment of the Elderly in Hospitals and Nursing Homes.

    My 87 yo Dad, fell out of bed and broke his back a little over a year ago and spent 6 months in the Hospital during lockdown. My Dad had everything, heart disease, diabetes, COPD and a slow growing tumor in his colon. He had exerienced some mini strokes (from being on a diuretic for too long) and had short term memory loss but had all of his long term memories. He had a stay in the Hospital the previous year and picked up C-Diff from the dirty Hospital. The C-Diff numbers have always been high in our Facility but only when a severe outbreak occurs.

    For the first 3 months that he was in, my Mother was the only one allowed to visit for a single visit of an hour once a week. She is fiesty and kept at the nurses to keep him clean and treated well. They would park him in a wheelchair and leave him all day in a dirty diaper facing a wall. I got a couple of visits in place of my mom and could barely talk to my dad because he was developing dementia from the isolateion. All this time, the management was pestering my mom to have him moved to a LTC facility because he wasn’t getting any medical treatment but needed nursing care.

    My mom was able to find an advocate in his cancer doctor who got him assigned as Palliative. That gave us daily visits and a dedicated nursing staff for a few weeks at the end. I had just retired and was able to visit my dad daily. With the daily visits from my mom, myself and my disabled sister, we were able to bring him around mentally, make sure he was fed and eating and kept clean. My Dad ended up passing at the end of September after getting a blood infection that was antibiotic resistant. He didn’t die of cancer, or heart disease, or diabletes but DIRTY HOSPITAL.

    In Canada, during the first wave of the lockdown our army had to deal with several failed LTC homes after the staff stopped coming to work. They found dead bodies everywhere with most of the deaths from neglect, dehydration and malnutrition. These facilites have one doctor that never goes on site and only one registered nurse on duty. These places are run by management and psw staff that has no medical training. The hospital isn’t much better which has more nurses but the patients are mostly cared for by psw’s. The Elderly are still locked down in these facilities with little or no family contact for now over a year. This treatment is criminal.

    Please, as a Doctor start making your rounds in the Hospital. Check that your patients are being cared for. That means checking thier bums for bedsores and seeing that they are eating. All this money on tests, and vaccines and everthing is being done to battle COVID but through all this nothing has been done to improve the treatment of the Elderly. The money needed for basic nursing care and cleaning has been squandered.

    Start calling out your peers and advocate a change to stop predating on the Elderly.

    Regards,

    Kevin Frechette

    Thank you, Dr. Kendrick. Always the voice of sanity in a world awash in propaganda. Here in the U.S. the narrative has begun to crumble. Tucker Carlson, our most popular TV personality, has joined our team, and shown that if any one person is responsible for this mess it is Fauci. We are fortunate to have a federal system, and some states, Florida being the best example, have gotten rid of all the nonsense. Meanwhile, here in California, the state has hired people to knock on doors to help make jab appointments! We told the knocker that we would never take it because it is quackery. He said he agreed! He’s just trying to put food on the table, and unlike many, with extended unemployment benefits disinclining them to actually find a job, is willing to work for his supper. But they’ve come to the end of the easy pickings with the jab. 38% of Americans have now had both jabs. A significant percentage never went back for the second, and most of the rest, I suspect, would run for the hills rather than subject themselves to this insanity, this untested and clearly dangerous and unnecessary experimental medical procedure.

    Anyone can edit Wikipedia, you literally just need an account, but, of course, in practice it is governed quite stringently by group consensus. Despite having being in the middle of flame wars myself, and having been banned time without number (I have a permanent ban from Amazon, on both sides of the Atlantic), I have yet to understand fully how group consensus works. It is definitely something to do with the internet age, which has somehow enabled people to go global in their acceptance of ideas. It is also somehow built on a framework of soundbites, and it is often literally a race to who gets to the soundbite first. So, in the case of Covid, whoever was first to start screaming ‘The mask, the mask!’ more or less trademarked Covid and how it should be handled.

    Of course, money is a big influencer, in as far as if you have a lot of money to throw at promoting an idea then you’re off to a head start, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. There is some kind of osmosis goes on through populations now, and because there is so much trial by media/popular opinion everybody lives in abject fear of running with the wrong herd. In effect, modern life has taken the human fear of being a social outcast and amplified it a million-fold. Now it’s not just your village you have to fear banishing you, but a whole continent – or two.

    What you’re experiencing right now is the horrible sensation of being an outcast from your own village. No matter how argumentative you are (as I am) or how much of a contrarian (ditto), it always hurts and you begin to doubt what you are doing, if not your very self. It’s ugly and there’s no escaping it, unless you shut up and kowtow to the silencing. I hope you don’t, but I wouldn’t judge you or anyone else who did. It’s tough and VERY often feels utterly futile. Best of luck with everything and just know you really are not alone – you’re just one of a very necessary and special minority. The kings need their court jesters, even if they don’t know it!

    As a trained scientist myself (Dr of Biological Sciences..retired), I must say that some of absolute bunkum we have been presented with these past twelve months, has made me almost ashamed to call myself a qualified scientist. The debunking of Herd Immunity at the very start of all of this, and then the reigniting of the theory when the vaccines were ready to use, astounded me. As did the dismissal of long held immunity theory and to say, like you pointed out, that the vaccine offers greater immunity, than infection and recovery from the actual virus itself, was an absolutely astounding piece of bunkum. I could go on and on about PCR, efficacy or not of masks, dodgy algorithms, but what is the point.
    All I can say is that if I had presented such wholly poor and ridiculously unsupported evidence at my PhD viva, I would have been laughed out of the examination room, by the examiners and told to stop wasting their time.

      Similarly rule of law has been shown the door. Here in NZ the government, when faced with a loss that would limit to roll out of the vaccine to only the at-risk populations… has indicated they will just change the law to ensure broad roll out… ensuring everyone gets the jab (including children).

      This is what countries run by corrupt bozos do…. they just change laws or make them up as they go along…

Likewise a sister who would ‘blindly’ follow orders but told me tonight that she thinks that she will never get it.

    Dear Dr Kendrick. Thank you very much for your fantastic blog and your efforts to detail what is happening in science right now. I have had a long and enjoyable career working in healthcare research (although not currently practising). However I have watched in astonishment at how, over the past year, evidence based medicine has been cast to the wayside in favour of dogma and almost cult like beliefs. The censorship of anyone not speaking the popular narrative is the thing that scares me the most. How did we get here, and what kind of a society are we living in? It certainly does not feel like a free society anymore. We must keep fighting for truth in science. Your blog’s help me to understand that I am not alone in my concerns.

    Dr Kendrick, here’s someone who agrees with you on science, Alan Savory, ecologist:

    “What is science? people talk glibly about science. What is science? People are coming out of the university with a master’s degree or a PhD. You take them into the field and they– they literally don’t believe *anything* unless there’s a peer-reviewed paper. It’s the only thing they accept. And you say to them, but, let’s observe, let’s *think*, let’s discuss. They don’t do it. It’s just, “Is it in a peer-reviewed paper or not?” That’s their view of science. I think it’s pathetic.

    “Gone into universities as bright young people, they come out of them brain-dead, not even knowing what science means. They think it means peer-reviewed papers, etc. No. That’s academia. And if a paper is peer-reviewed, it means everybody thought the same. Therefore they approved it. And an unintended consequence is that when new knowledge emerges — new scientific insights — they can never, ever be peer-reviewed. So we’re blocking all new advances in science that are big advances. If you look at the breakthroughs in science, almost always they don’t come from the centre of that profession, they come from the fringe. The finest candle-makers in the world couldn’t even *think* of electric lights. They don’t come from within. They often come from outside the bricks.

    “We’re going to kill ourselves because of stupidity.”

      Martin Back: Thanks. Alan Savory is one of my great heroes. In November, 2015, I had the great pleasure to hear him speak about the profound insights and revelations he had from experience, from just this sort of observation and thinking, concerning the web of relationships between grazing herds, predatory pressure, and the grasslands, after a career of doing everything wrong regarding wildlife. A beautiful symphony, each utterly dependent on all of them to thrive and survive. Brilliant man, and his insights are being applied all over the world in restoring grasslands-40% of the arable land on Earth, and the majority degraded by human folly. The evil forces against this are Bill Gates and the state of Oregon, who wish to eliminate grazing agriculture to produce fake meat.

    Dear Malcolm, I agree we have regressed to preenlightenment times. I find it frightening, as it is my view that everything we’re being told about the virus is a lie.
    That the sane set of lies are being told everywhere simultaneously can only be the result of some degree of coordination. Some of the deceptions require other pieces in order to make it work, speaking to planning. Planning & international coordination with a view to frighten & confuse? Sounds like a conspiracy. Nothing theoretical about it.

      How do you convince them to execute a plan that appears to involve a mass cull — or perhaps extinction of humans? (I cannot see a cull working – you end up with total collapse if you cull because you kill many who are crucial in ensuring BAU continues to operate)

      What do THEY KNOW – that we have not been told?

      The Limits to Growth study predicted we’d run into big problems around 2008. And of course we had GFC that year.

      Here’s a paper from Tim Morgan arguing that the end of cheap to produce oil and the response to this conundrum caused GFC https://ftalphaville-cdn.ft.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Perfect-Storm-LR.pdf

      Oil his $147/barrel in the months prior to GFC… that was because conventional oil peaked around 2005…

      Of course shale came to the rescue — and BAU staggered on for over a decade… but shale was always a short term play due to rapid depletion rates…

      And not only did shale peak in 2019 (possibly 2018) it appears that we are on the precipice of a catastrophic collapse:

      Shale binge has spoiled US reserves, top investor warns. Financial Times.

      He said operators had carried out “massive fracks” that created “artificial, permanent porosity”, inadvertently reducing the pressure in reservoirs and therefore the available oil.
      The comments will cause alarm in the shale patch, given the crucial role of investors such as QEP in financing the onshore American oil business.

      https://energyskeptic.com/2021/the-end-of-fracked-shale-oil/

      Shale was never Saudi Arabia… it lost $300 on an investment of $1 trillion. It was civilization’s last gasp…

      Or as Art Berman oil geologist has said — it’s oil’s retirement party — it’s like sucking beer dregs out of the carpet.

      And now it’s ending – and there is nothing else….

      The people who are censoring and lying — are doing this for a reason – a good reason.

      They are putting the global economy on ice — if we burn oil at 2018 levels the price will quickly surge into the hundreds of dollars and we’ll get an uncontrolled collapse of the economy.

      That will result in no electricity, no petrol, no food, no security – violence – disease – rape — cannibalism.

      They KNOW this. Leaders of the world have been briefed on this.

      They are killing us off before collapse hits. They are pre-empting mass suffering.

      There is no surviving collapse — anyone who makes it through has 4000 spent fuel ponds that will spew radiation for centuries.

      So Covid is cover to ensure people take the vaccines… the vaccines are going to breed ‘Devil Covid’ (similar to the situation with Marek’s – only worse because they are doing this in the midst of a pandemic)….

      And just about everyone will get sick and die… many others will quarantine in their homes and starve to death … and those who are remote including doomsday preppers and primitive tribes… they’ll last a little longer… but the radiation plumes will spread… and they’ll be exterminated as well.

      I know this is very difficult for most to accept. But at the end of the day, it is the right thing to do.

      Imagine this – but without food electricity petrol medicine running water:

        Hard to swallow. First, no one KNOWS the future. Second, surely some, maybe most (since they have very little faith in God) of the elite that know this would commit suicide rather than face the horror you envision. I don’t see this happening. Third, faced with certain death, nuclear power would have been ramped up, rather than dumping mass amounts of money in solar and wind boondoggles. People generally want to extend their life as long as they can. If switching to nuclear gave them another 50 years you can bet they’d take it. Fourth, people are generally greedy and if the elite knew oil was gone they would have snatched it up for themselves and ended consumer use years ago, by military force if necessary.

          Nuclear power has many issues but the key ones are it is no fungible like oil and cost.

          We have not run out of oil — that will never happen — we have not been finding any cheap to extract oil for many years now. Even when oil was priced over $100 we did not discover much…there is no point in looking with the energy return is too low.

          Think of it this way — in the past you used 1 barrel of oil to extract 100. So you had 99 free barrels to operate the global economy.

          Shale oil has a negative nett return — i.e. they lost 300B on 1 trillion invested… that means it is nett negative on energy return.

          However if we average out shale + cheap conventional reserves — and we throw in massive stimulus including near 0 interest rates — we can stagger along … as we have since 2008.

          However all good things must end — at some point the math does not work — conventional continues to decline (Ghawar numbers are top secret but we can extrapolate from anecdotal comments about increasing water cuts to generate enough pressure to keep pumping – see Twilight in the Desert – a great book) — and as I have posted shale is basically on its last legs… we pumped the sweet spots and there are massive pressure declines being experienced across the plays… so the high hanging fruit is stranded.

          Nuclear simply does not generate a significant enough return on energy (particularly if you factor in the massive costs of an accident as well as the decommissioning costs – all absorbed by governments)…. it is at best another version of shale in that if offset with other cheap energy (such as coal)… it helps extend what is a very precarious balance.

          Keep in mind upwards of 40% of oil is used for non-energy purposes … e.g. plastics.

          Again – we are not out of oil — there is plenty left — if oil could be priced at say $300/barrel.

          But money is simple a proxy for oil — so $300 oil has no return. That is why it would destroy the global economy and end civilization.

          The people who run the show know all of this and much more — they know which fields are in massive decline — with specifics that we are not privy to.

          There is no alternative to cheap to produce oil. Period.

          We have been fed a heap of PR about solar and wind — recall Japan was going to be energy independent mining energy from sea water? — all BS. The purpose of this massive PR campaign has been to convince people that we will be transitioned off of oil ‘soon’.

          And here we are — at the absolute peak — and those who understand this know that nobody makes out alive.

          If extinction is guaranteed… then why not try to mitigate the epic suffering that comes with the end of civilization? Why not use a leaky vaccine to create a deadly virus and kill everyone?

          It makes total sense.

          If you knew with certainty that in one month’s time … you were going to lose electricity permanently… all shops would close permanently…. the police and military and your government would cease to operate….. and desperate, hungry, violent men would be off the leash — and going house to house looking for food…. and women….

          (I suggest reading A People’s Tragedy – during the famine in Russia in 1921-22… children were hunted and eaten … this was widespread… read the Rape of Nanking…. horrific tales of rape and murder)….

          Would you not choose to shield your family from this? Would you not opt for suicide?

          Think long and hard… you are going to die in a month no matter what you do…. do you want your wife and children raped — and eaten? Or ….

          The men who are running the Covid /Vaccine operation … are in your position — they have all the data… they know what is headed our way. And they have made the RIGHT decision….

          I highly recommend this research paper — it opened my eyes to what caused the GFC … and it explains why there is no way out of peak oil… and I’ve been on a lengthy bucket list ever since.

            Bossche and Montagnier are the virologists who are stating that deploying a leaky vaccine during a pandemic will create a ‘bioweapon’…. you will need to ask them (Bossche has indicated within months)… Of course they cannot know exactly… because it is impossible to know when the moment of conception that produces the ‘Devil’ will occur…. apparently they are more prolific than rabbits … reproducing every 10 hours or so.

    Science.
    Using the Randomized Controlled Trial, double-blinded and placebo controlled with large numbers of subjects, is the best way medical researchers can answer the questions they ask of Reality. Designed strictly according to scientific protocol, the RCT will provide answers that are more likely to be true than not. The researcher’s cognitive bias, premature personal conclusions, desires or $ are restricted by a good RCT, though never fully eliminated. ( Murphy was an optimist. 🙂 )

    Ah, but. Thinking up the questions to examine – that’s the quagmire. There’s no clear guidance.
    Try formulating questions WITHOUT PERSONAL INPUT. Use previous answers as clues to the most deeply delving, the most insightful questions.
    And then get it funded – even if it doesn’t involve a shiny new $$ pill cure.
    That’s as it should be.
    Now?

    But then –
    What do you do when faced with a dire novel situation?
    The desperate patient is looking you back in the eye and you have no RCT – designed, funded, recruited, or waiting for results – to treat him with.
    What do you do?
    No, really. What do you do?

      I tried giving placebos to photons in my research, but they refused to take them. And blinding anything was impossible in my classical optics research.

      Experimental physics is very difficult because of all the necessary controls that must be applied. And even then, it mostly never works in the field anyway. lol

      Experimental design is quite difficult. Good experimental design is even harder to do.

      When I was defending my thesis, I was asked three questions and my answer was consistent. “I don’t know, but I’ll get back to you after I think about it.” I thought I had failed, but it turns out that that was the answer that the reviewers were looking for. My jaw dropped.

      In any research project, there are things that can be picked at. Hopefully you overlook mole hills, not mountains.

    I’m struggling to say something worthwhile that hasn’t already been said, but it’s rather selfish to just keep reading your blogs, nodding in agreement, and then saying nothing.
    What you write is extremely important. It makes a significant minority of people realise they’re neither mad nor completely ignorant for questioning the narrative.
    Things have often felt very dark over the last year or so, and impossible to fathom no matter how much I’ve questioned myself. Reading the thoughts of those who’ve dedicated so much of their lives to science and medicine, and still have the courage to stand apart from much of what has gone on, is very encouraging, and so, thank you.
    As I see it, Occam’s Razor essentially says that all things being equal, the simplest explanation for any given phenomenon is usually the correct one. Consequently I’ve stopped trying to make sense of the endless dismantling of so many basic truths in medical science I’d previously thought it reasonable to rely upon and concluded that the overwhelming stench of corruption, agendas, vested interests and arse-covering is palpable only because it’s real.
    I don’t see why anyone should be surprised by this: human beings are eminently corruptible as history tells us repeatedly. It’s arguably more pervasive now. Personally I think it is, and that this is primarily due to the power and influence of technology.
    In essence though, all the same old bastards who populate Dante’s Circles in Hell are still there in one guise or another. I like to imagine that if there’s a Heaven, and he’s in it, he’s busily scribbling away, creating a few more circles and drafting a 21st century update.

      You are absolutely right, they do – but I am now anxious that every virus that pops up anywhere in the world will bring us all to a grinding halt again.

      A mighty experiment has been conducted and the subjects have complied and the experiment has shown that we are very easy to manipulate and essentially happy to imprison ourselves for extended periods of time. No guns at our heads, no death threats, just fear and peer pressure was sufficient! Deeply concerning for the future in my opinion, but I very much hope my anxieties are misplaced.

Get put on a list of suspects, and you are beginning to appreciate the no-platforming concept.

    For some years I have likened myself to Cassandra, (the prophetess whose fate was that she would always predict correctly but would never be believed) or to Galileo before the Inquisition with his mad theory that the world went round the sun. Eventually the truth will out, whether it be with Covid or cholesterol. The one thing that one can predict with certainty is that the majority of those proved to be wrong will never apologise. The chutzpah of some of these folk, who in medical or scientific terms are illiterate, is extraordinary. I cannot wait for D.

    Malcolm, it’s a sad time when you realise no one is listening to the science. We saw that happen in medicine when we shifted to fat as the culprit in the ’70’s. I didn’t wake up from that till 2010. Since then I’ve seen the same happen in climate, race and anything else you care to mention. But the real kicker has indeed been the COVID debacle. Never has it been so obvious, blatant and furious. This is where we need to focus on the real problem because if we don’t find that there is no way we can find the real solution. I think it lies with the bid for centralisation of control. Those behind the set up of the UN and its organisations. I can’t quite believe it’s simply an opportunistic power grab by a few folk like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates. I believe they are just front men for a deeper organisation of power.

        Variants will be those left after the vaccines eliminate the original line. No reason to think that the variants will be deadlier than the original line. In fact, they are likelier to be less deadly because the deadlier variants tend to not be passed on because the host dies and isn’t around other people much when ill.

    Today the perceived enemy is Covid and the same principle applies, they will censor, arrest, remove, control, manipulate and lie to ‘the people’ just to stop any discussion against the ‘correct’ view. But, I wouldn’t worry too much, the battle lines are drawn and I don’t think there will be too much swapping sides now.
    Today a customer asked why I wasn’t having the vaccine and I was absolutely honest – because ‘I know four people who have had strokes and my next door neighbour had a heart attack within three weeks of having the vaccine’. ‘Oh’ came the reply.
    If Sage are right we can all remain silent and get on with our lives, but if they are wrong, which everyone with a brain knows to be the case, there is trouble ahead. As you see so often on YouTube comments – the Nuremberg trials 2.

    200 Indian Villagers Jump Into Saryu River To Avoid Forceful COVID-19 Vaccination
    by GreatGameIndia

    When the Health Department team arrived at the Sisoda village in Uttar Pradesh to vaccinate them, the villagers ran to the shore. When the team surrounded them at the shore almost 200 villagers jumped into the river Saryu to escape forceful COVID-19 vaccination.

    There is so much awareness about the adverse events from vaccine and post-vaccination deaths in this village that when the Health Department team arrived here for vaccination, about 200 villagers ran away and reached the shore of river Saryu.

    When the Health Department team got information that the villagers were out of the village towards the river, they went to convince them.

    Seeing the team coming towards them, the villagers could not find a way to escape and jumped into the Saryu river to avoid getting vaccinated forcefully.

Independent and dependent variables. Prove particle X (independent) causes Y disease (dependent). Not done. SARS CoV-2 not isolated (60 institutions sent FOI requests for proof of an isolated virus particle have been returned with “nothing found”). No independent variable found to study, manipulate and vary to see if it causes Y (Covid-19) disease. It is all one big scam.

Side story is that, last week, a colleague (PhD, albeit I suffer the same fate, who I would say is head and shoulders above me in knowledge & academically (caveat not common sense) said that it took him a month to recover from his first shot (don’t know which one).
    I had my 2nd ever comment last week re. masking: when a guard at Aldi (not seen him before) who wasn’t at the door (but popped up when I got to the eggs), asked if I had a face mask – I replied by asking why I needed one & he walked off.
    I have got back into a once a week car share with a colleague – he has had his first shot, I’m waiting (Phase 3 trials, etc.). The good thing is that neither of us care either way about what the other has done & which is the way it should be.
    We can all do our bit in our small ways (as per some of the comments above). Dr Kendrick is doing more than a small job as are a number of others (I’ve got my Dad watching Dr Vernon’s brand new tube videos – he looks forwards to the old man in a chair, through the old man is a decade younger).
    Even though there may be 100’s of comments in this current blog, which is but a raindrop in the ocean (Mother Teresa?), we are splashing onto & influencing others.
    I have convinced both my 80’s parents to delay Maxime at least until Spring 2022 when independent & anecdotal data becomes available to scrutinise (aside – I got my Dad off statins a few years back and whoa & behold he regained cognitive plus muscle function).

      Well done for getting your dad off statins!

      My dad, after 2 heart attacks, had been getting worse on statins (and many other pills). A few years back he got recommended to a more natural practitioner who dramatically reduced his pills, got rid of the statins, and got him taking daily exercise (just walking etc.). An enormous improvement in his health! My dad even admitted it. But him & my mum are so indoctrinated into the one-pill-for-one-ailment culture that they started giving excuses for not travelling every month to this doctor, and slowly slipped back into the pill culture, and of course his health went downhill again.

      For me I was lucky. After a few painful weeks on statins, I saw Dr Kendrick’s “The Cholesterol Con” book recommended, read it over a weekend, and threw away the rest of my initial 3 month statin supply. That was 15 years ago. He has my utmost thanks for that. Also too for his early recommendations for Vitamin D and for the dosage levels (much higher than what we had been using). Me and my kids have been taking good size daily doses of Vit D (3,000 iU) for over a year now and barely a cold between any of us.

      I still cling to the hope that this medical tyranny will soon collapse in on itself. That might well be very soon. Then it’ll be like the Stasti, where apparently over a million were in its service, but now no ‘Ossie’ will ever admit that they were.

        Thanks Her Outdoors. I have been researching shedding & have a number of notes to type up. I’m prepared to take the chance – likewise, my parents have gone away on holiday this week in the UK as life is too short. Badminton restarted tonight & there were 20 of us indoors mixing on 4 courts. I don’t give a monkeys who has / hasn’t had covid, been vaccinated or anything else. The hardest part is remembering not to shake hands after each game. It is mostly touching rackets but some of us are OK fist bumping.
        Thanks Simon. Sorry about your parents but good on you for ditching. Must admit that I don’t take Vit D as I try to get out in the sun as much as feasible in the summer to ‘bank’ enough for the winter. Never had Vit D measured before but as it was offered through work (as part of ‘wellness’) – I had mine at the end of March & I was marginally above the minimum I wanted to be and not as high as I’d have preferred – I now know that next winter I’ll start taking supplements in the New Year until the UK sun becomes strong / high enough again in April. I have bought my parents loads of Vit D and have been getting them to take 10,000 IU throughout winter (and if Dr David Grimes happens to read this comment – I have your book ‘Vitamin D and Cholesterol’, a fantastic read {as are all three books of Dr Kendrick}).
        As to your hoping that the medical tyranny will soon collapse in on itself, I can’t see it. I observe highly intelligent people that, in the course of work, will challenge anything and everything but yet with coronavirus, masks, ‘rules’, vaccines, etc., believe everything that they are told and don’t seem to question anything. I’m also shocked by the younger generation – I mentor a couple of 20 year olds, neither of whom has been in the office for 14 months, sticking to working from home, and despair. I try to encourage them to research things for themselves but the mainstream narrative predominates.

    More on leaky vaccines… re-watching the Montagnier interview and he is asked ‘should we be vaccinating during a pandemic’ and responds ‘it’s unthinkable’…

    Bossche warns that doing so will create a ‘bio-weapon’

    I will assume that the Marek’s vaccine was not deployed during a raging pandemic of that disease… given doing so is ‘unthinkable’…

    So what does ‘unthinkable’ mean…. do we get a ‘Marek’s’ outcome — with the difference being the new virus that is unleashed with these Covid vaccines… kill both the unvaccinated as well as the vaccinated?

    This chicken vaccine makes its virus more dangerous
    Science Jul 27, 2015 3:01 PM EDT

    The deadliest strains of viruses often take care of themselves — they flare up and then die out. This is because they are so good at destroying cells and causing illness that they ultimately kill their host before they have time to spread.

    But a chicken virus that represents one of the deadliest germs in history breaks from this conventional wisdom, thanks to an inadvertent effect from a vaccine. Chickens vaccinated against Marek’s disease rarely get sick. But the vaccine does not prevent them from spreading Marek’s to unvaccinated birds.

    “With the hottest strains, every unvaccinated bird dies within 10 days. There is no human virus that is that hot. Ebola, for example, doesn’t kill everything in 10 days.”
    In fact, rather than stop fowl from spreading the virus, the vaccine allows the disease to spread faster and longer than it normally would, a new study finds. The scientists now believe that this vaccine has helped this chicken virus become uniquely virulent. (Note: it only harms fowl). The study was published on Monday in the journal PLOS Biology.

    This is the first time that this virus-boosting phenomenon, known as the imperfect vaccine hypothesis, has been observed experimentally.

    The reason this is a problem for Marek’s disease is because the vaccine is “leaky.” A leaky vaccine is one that keeps a microbe from doing serious harm to its host, but doesn’t stop the disease from replicating and spreading to another individual. On the other hand, a “perfect” vaccine is one that sets up lifelong immunity that never wanes and blocks both infection and transmission.

        BIOGRAPHY
        Byram Bridle

        Dr. Byram Bridle is an Associate Professor of viral immunology at the University of Guelph. His research program focuses on the development and optimization of vaccines for the treatment of infectious diseases and cancers. In March of this year he and two of his colleagues were commissioned by the government of Ontario to engineer several potential vaccine candidates to provide protective immunity against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is the causative agent of the coronavirus disease that emerged in 2019 (COVID-19).

        In collaboration with the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, one of the vaccine candidates proved effective in protecting hamsters from COVID-19. This resulted in a contract being established with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to develop a manufacturing process for the vaccine. A second contract has been established with the NRC to advance a second-generation CVODI-19 vaccine into the translational research pipeline. Dr. Bridle has also co-authored a series of lay articles in The Conversation to provide information to the lay public about the immunological aspects of COVID-19 and the development of vaccines.

        His thought
        EMAIL 1
        Although Geert gets there by a slightly different route, we both end up at the same conclusion: that current design of the vaccines and the way they are being rolled out creates risk of the emergence of immunoevasive variants.

        EMAIL 2
        I don’t agree 100% with some of the minutiae of the scientific arguments, but that is a moot point.

        I long ago drew a similar conclusion via a slightly different route through immunological and virological principles.

        In short, I agree with the big picture argument being made.

        I haven’t been so bold as to draw conclusions that are as ‘strong’, but I can’t disagree at all with Geert’s take-home message.

        He is a respected scientist and has published many papers in well-respected journals. I can guarantee that he knows what he is talking about. I do think there is a high probability of our vaccine rollouts driving the emergence of dangerous variants.

        In fact, I just initiated intense communications with my local health unit because they have just started a series of vaccination clinics and are not following the protocols approved by Health Canada (our regulatory agency).

        In fact, Canada has unwisely chosen to be a ‘leader’ in extending the interval between the two doses of the COVID-19 vaccines to four months! There is no precedent in the world and no empirical data to back-up the decision. It was based on epidemiological modeling that had to incorporate several ‘assumptions’. All they focused on was theoretical effects on the immune system. They failed to consider effects on the virus.

        Canada’s rationale is that it is better to get twice as many people with sub-optimal immunity for an extended period of time rather than maximal immunity in half the people. This is akin to having an outbreak of a dangerous bacterium but not enough antibiotics to go around. If one were to choose to administer the antibiotics for half the recommended # of days but to twice as many people, most scientists would agree that this would be an ideal scenario to promote the emergence of dangerous antibiotic-resistant variants. Physicians tell their patients to complete their antibiotic regimen, even when they start feeling much better part way in. To cut the treatment short = potentiation of risk of driving antibiotic resistance.

        So why are we doing this in the context of SARS-CoV-2?!? The vaccine rollouts are already being done in a way that will drive the emergence of what we call ‘antigenic variants’; these are versions of the virus that have incorporated sufficient mutations to allow the target antigen (in this case, the spike protein) to change enough in structure as to become unrecognizable by the highly specific antibodies and T cells that were induced by the vaccines.

        Specifically, the vaccines are being rolled out very slowly and are being distributed here and there (i.e. in piecemeal fashion). This means that vaccinated people will be intermingling with unvaccinated individuals. The latter can serve as a reservoir in the which the virus will have lots of time to incorporate random mutations and ‘test’ its ability to infect vaccinated people. If the latter happens, it would be result of an immuno-evasive variant emerging.

        Adding unvalidated uses of the existing vaccines will only accelerate progress to this point. If a variant emerges that can bypass the immunity conferred by all current vaccines, we will be back to ‘square one’ and all our lockdowns for the past year will have been of zero net benefit.

        We already have clear evidence this can happen: the Novavax, Johnson & Johnson, and AstraZeneca vaccines have all performed much poorer against the South African variant; AstraZeneca’s provides very little protection against it.

        https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03398-2

        Importantly, the authors of this paper conclude that the way to avoid this is to maximize immunity as quickly as possible. Indeed, if vaccines are used in this way, an outbreak can be stopped in its tracks and there would be insufficient time and reservoir populations would be too small to support emergence of variants.

        However, the authors are dreaming if they think our global vaccine rollout can be done in this proper way. It will never be fast enough. Everything we are doing in the vaccine rollout, in fact, is potentiating the emergence of variants.

        It upsets me because public health officials are, in essence, driving the emergence of new variants that put you and me, and our families, friends and colleagues at risk of having to deal with potentially more dangerous version of this virus.

        Personally, I would like to have much broader immunity than what the current vaccines induce. Broader immunity = less chance that a variant can evade it (because they can’t change too many components and maintain fitness).

        By the way, the virology side of this is that coronaviruses naturally mutate over time. They employ an error-prone polymerase that randomly incorporates mutations when they copy their genetic material. This is a strategy that helps them adapt to new environmental pressures; such as narrowly-focused immunological pressure (and weak immunity caused by massive delays in administering second doses of vaccines).

        An additional note: Some have argued that the emergence of partially immunoevasive mutants of SARS-CoV-2 prior to the rollout of vaccines invalidates the idea of vaccines potentiating this effect. However, one could argue that this observation actually supports the idea. The extended global lockdowns dramatically slowed progress towards natural immunity. Time and slow development of herd immunity = potentiation of immunoevasive mutants.

        1. Martin Back

          I don’t agree with this line of argument.

          Consider this: people’s immune systems vary in efficacy. One virus might kill an older or co-morbid person, but the EXACT SAME virus might not even be felt by a younger, healthier person. In other words, the younger, healthier person could be incubating a virus that could kill someone with a lesser immune system. The younger, healthier person is in the exact same position as someone with a leaky vaccine.

          Since you can’t kill off or isolate all the young, healthy people, you have to accept that a killer virus may evolve, irrespective of how many people you have vaccinated. So given the current leaky vaccines, there’s no reason to suppose that a swift rollout of universal vaccination will make any difference to the emergence of a killer virus.

          My understanding of the Vanden Bossche article is that it is a promotional argument for his concept of “novel and fully synthetic vaccines, the latter aim to prime ‘Natural Killer’ cells that universally target vulnerable pathogen specific epitopes across a broad spectrum of different pathogen strains and host specific MHC allotypes.”

        Re the ‘leaky vaccines’ paper: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.1002198.
        Here’s the abstract:

        Could some vaccines drive the evolution of more virulent pathogens? Conventional wisdom is that natural selection will remove highly lethal pathogens if host death greatly reduces transmission. Vaccines that keep hosts alive but still allow transmission could thus allow very virulent strains to circulate in a population. Here we show experimentally that immunization of chickens against Marek’s disease virus enhances the fitness of more virulent strains, making it possible for hyperpathogenic strains to transmit. Immunity elicited by direct vaccination or by maternal vaccination prolongs host survival but does not prevent infection, viral replication or transmission, thus extending the infectious periods of strains otherwise too lethal to persist. Our data show that anti-disease vaccines that do not prevent transmission can create conditions that promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts.

          Ok, I’m a layperson and claim no expertise at all in this area, apart from asking questions.
          But this bizzo with the chickens and Marek’s disease is important I think.
          So, either it’s plausible, and the Marek’s vaccine could “promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts”.
          Or, it’s not true at all, it’s a beat-up to create a massive chicken vaccine market.
          So which is it?
          Keeping in mind it’s generally presumed that viruses evolve to become less lethal?
          But isn’t that in a situation where the virus has transmitted naturally among people, i.e. a lot of people wouldn’t have been adversely affected anyway, and the virus would eventually die out? And the more infectious the virus, the quicker it spreads, and it’s usually less lethal, i.e. as compared to ebola which kills quickly, and doesn’t have much time to spread?
          But if you mass vaccinate, i.e. a very unnatural intervention, this throws the whole natural spread out of whack?
          And what might happen then?
          I’m just speaking off the top of my head here, so apologies if incorrect terminology etc.

          Can Marek’s Disease Be Cured?

          Unfortunately, if your chicken contracts Marek’s Disease, there is no cure or treatment. If your chicken has come into contact with Marek’s Disease, you may have an infected bird on your hands without even knowing it.

          https://dpipwe.tas.gov.au/biosecurity-tasmania/animal-biosecurity/animal-health/poultry-and-pigeons/mareks-disease

          If we tie this together with the assertions from Team Bossche… as I have suggested… deploying a leaky vaccine DURING a pandemic is different from vaccinating young chickens with a leak vaccine when there is no Marek’s pandemic….

          Bossche has stated that the issue with vaccinating during a pandemic is that the virus engages in a survival of the fittest race and more deadly variants are likely to emerge.

          So I am thinking that both the unvaxxed and the vaxxed will be put down by the deadly variants… because the vax will offer zero protection to the CovIDIOTS.

          Is this what Montagnier is referring to when he says ‘it is unthinkable to vaccinate in the midst of a pandemic’

          It is unthinkable… because to think this… is to acknowledge the Compassionate Extinction Plan.

        The NHS needs good professionals like you, and my wish would be that the sooner our NHS is allowed to be managed by professional medics of all categories, as they see fit, the better. The public are struggling with what they consider ‘minor’ conditions, being made to feel greedy by taking up GPs’ time. In the last week, I have had two people ask me about problems that I felt needed professional advice…..I suspected a fracture of the scaphoid for one , and sinusitis for the other. Now don’t get me wrong, I am no expert, but both individuals needed much persuasion by me, without alarming them, to seek the professional help I knew they needed; attention needed to prevent potentially awful outcomes if left unattended. The first stoic considered his ‘hurty’ wrist was trivial and the other thought the dreadful face aches would only be dealt with via a phone call. That is not what we want from our NHS, is it? Neither had the knowledge to diagnose their conditions, or realise the implications of non-treatment, because all their lives they have depended on visiting their GP for attention. They do not have life-threatening conditions, but neither are they time-wasters, as the politicians would have us believe.
        We need to reclaim our Health Service.

    I’ve thought for a while that there is something wrong with the initial education of doctors in medical schools and, more recently, with the selection of applicants by post code and family background more or less regardless of their school leaving exam results (see the document from the Medical Schools Council Selection Alliance “Indicators of Good Practice in Contextual Admissions” of 2018. Speak to anyone who has had their intelligent and sharp witted child rejected without cause given. Smart parents and schools now direct potential candidates for medical school to biomedical science courses or something similar so that if they still want to practice as doctors they can switch later after their first degree. Obviously obedience and inherent reluctance to rock the establishment boat is now what is wanted in medics in the UK’s national health service.

      In my experience, online and personally, it seems that an awful lot of supposed highly educated people (obviously does not apply to politicians) are buying into the false narratives spread by the establishment. Engineers and Scientists also seem to be prone to the misinformation agenda.
      Maybe this is a result of the dumbing down of education over the last four decades ? Maybe there is too much time spent on specialists areas and not enough time given to a wide and varied general education ?
      Everyone has a degree now. Not because everyone is intelligent, but because the education system is designed to dish out ‘degrees’ rather than educate.

      Yes Jeremy. Lots happens when the fight or flight emergency kicks in or a panic attack arises. Not least is the increase in clotting factors to help mend the wounds inflicted by the tiger. I think we may overstress diet because it’s perhaps the easiest thing to act on. Dr Michael Mosley has just done a programme on Radio 4 (Sun. 23 May. ‘Just One Thing.

    Dear Dr Malcolm Kendrick

    I am sorry but not surprised to hear that you are under attack. It seems all right minded, thinking people are now conspiracy theorists and whack jobs.
    I include myself in this and want to reassure you and encourage you that people are waking up. It’s taken time but the more people I speak to the more folks are coming to the conclusion that it’s all about another agenda. Many of them aren’t awake enough to realise they don’t need a vaccine but we can keep trying.

    Please please keep up the good work. Many of us have been so grateful this year to hear the small calm voices of the few above the barrage of utter nonsense that is sewed forth daily.

    If nothing else more and more people have turned off their TV’s and radios and are enjoying a good book and some healthier pursuits. I think very few people are listening to any of it anymore.

    Thank you for standing up and having the courage of your convictions and the knowledge to back it up.

    This is off topic, but I’m always curious when people receive down votes on their comments. Up votes are easy to understand, but you would think the down voters would counter with their opinion and perhaps start a lively and enlightening debate. I always wonder, what did I say to prompt them? I’m like everyone else here searching for truth. Do I think I’ve I found it and my opinion should outweigh other’s? A firm no! I invite all the down voters to stick around and debate. I might learn something.

      I agree, Don. I think it’s symptomatic of our times. Even in the comments on Dr Kendrick’s blog, you see people advancing rather odd or unlikely ideas. Then others pounce on anything they can disagree with. It’s like the feuding rebel groups in “Life of Brian”.

      If I happen to write anything that someone dislikes, a certain kind of person may start a private vendetta which involves systematically voting down all my comments – even if they just say that “2 + 2 = 4”.

      It would be better if we all exchanged views soberly and respectfully, and accepted that others will often disagree with what looks obvious to us.

      The only really important thing we should be thinking about is supporting Dr Kendrick and other reasonable, open-minded doctors and scientists – and lay people, too. Squabbling and petty grievances are a luxury we can’t afford.

          Yes – it makes more sense to explain why one disagrees than to give a downvote which usually just amounts to a “Boo!”.

    I’ve been a GP for 45 years and have seen many changes in practice. Some good, some bad and some unbelievably bad. Evidence base medicine(EBM) is an example of the latter. It started (we thought) as a movement to liberate us all from expert opinion derived from limited personal experience. It has been hijacked by vested interests – primarily drug manufacturers and their bought, medical expert underlings – to control medical practice to generate maximum profit, at any cost to the public good .

I have both Israeli and Palestinian friends, and I like and respect them all, but the horrors today in the Middle East (and Indian subcontinent) are to a great extent due to the colossal stupidity and legacy of the British colonizers, and between Israel and the Palestinians due to the U.S. picking a winner (Israel) and sending them $Billions in weaponry. Makes me weep. The victims are mainly the innocent.

    Who guards the guardians? Possibly whoever funds them, although I’m sure they also have their own sincerely-held biases. Expect the factchecking to become more rigorous and biased, as the groundwork is laid for a covid child vaccination programme. Those who are convinced children are in mortal danger from covid, plus those who are convinced children to be lethal asymptomatic super-spreading bio-weapons lead the charge. On the other side are parents who feel their children to at risk of possibly fatal harm from the government programme. A culture war over children. It’s not going to be pretty.

    12-15 year-olds are first in line. Young people at the age of forming their own independent view of the world. What if they take a different view of this matter to that of their parents? Malcolm, I don’t know if you deal with this age group in your work, but if so it would be interesting to know how those sort conflicts get handled.

      I watched a couple of clips of his testimony and was thinking, like The Dude, “That’s just, like, your opinion, man.” His degree is in ancient and modern history. I hardly think that qualifies him as a medical expert.

      One thing I will agree with — the old age homes were woefully unprotected.

      In fact, I think that’s the most important aspect of this pandemic, namely, just how strongly stratified the risk profile is. Older, obese, and diabetic people are vastly more at risk than younger and healthier people. Once that was understood, government policy should have shifted to protecting the vulnerable and letting the rest get on with life.

      The inquiry seems to be based on the idea that the risk was equal across the entire population, which is patently wrong.

    [Apologies, I inadvertantly posted these comments to another posting by Dr Kendrick but feel they really belong here:]

    Dr Kendrick, a book I read years ago, comes to mind as it directly addresses the latest Inquisition: ‘Against Method’ by Paul Feyerabend (Verso Books, Third Edition, 1980).

    He uses Galileo’s ‘run-in’ with the Catholic church to illustrate his argument:

    “No theory ever agrees with all the facts in its domain, yet it is not always the theory that is to blame. Facts are constituted by older ideologies, and a clash between facts and theories may be a proof of progress. It is also a first step in our attempt to find the principles implicit in familiar observational notions.”

    Consider now the invention, elaboration and use of theories which are inconsistent, not just with other theories, but even with experiments, facts, observations we may start by pointing out that no single theory ever agrees with all the known facts in its domain.

    /../

    Thus the Copernican view at the time of Galileo was inconsistent facts so plain and obvious that Galileo had to call it ‘surely false’. P.55

        Yes, wasn’t he just! When I first read it, all those years ago, I was struck by the Galileo example, that Galileo knew he was right but he couldn’t damn well prove it! The proof didn’t exist, so he had to INVENT it.

    Ditto, this one:

    Dear Dr Kendrick,
    This is the description of his followup book, ‘Science in a free society’, apt don’t you think?

    ‘No study in the philosophy of science created such controversy in the seventies as Paul Feyerabend’s Against Method. In this work, Feyerabend reviews that controversy, and extends his critique beyond the problem of scientific rules and methods, to the social function and direction of science today. In the first part of the book, he launches a sustained and irreverent attack on the prestige of science in the West. The lofty authority of the ‘expert’ claimed by scientists is, he argues, incompatible with any genuine democracy, and often merely serves to conceal entrenched prejudices and divided opinions with the scientific community itself. Feyerabend insists that these can and should be subjected to the arbitration of the lay population, whose closes interests they constantly affect as struggles over atomic energy programs so powerfully attest. Calling for far greater diversity in the content of education to facilitate democratic decisions over such issues, Feyerabend recounts the origin and development of his own ideas successively engaged by Brecht, Ehrenhaft, Popper, Mill and Lakatos in a spirited intellectual self-portrait. Science in a Free Society is a striking intervention into one of the most topical debates in contemporary culture and politics.’

    So, 50 years later, corporate capitalism has hurled us back to the time of Galileo!

    From today’s guardian newsfeed. Apparently, the two vector vaccines send spike protein into the nucleus (the guardian says, but it is not in the abstract), where it gets spliced, expelled and can wreak havoc in the bloodstream.
    The preprint is here:
    https://www.researchsquare.com/article/rs-558954/v1
    From the abstract:
    Here, we present data that may explain these severe side effects which have been attributed to adenoviral vaccines. According to our results, transcription of wildtype and codon-optimized Spike open reading frames enables alternative splice events that lead to C-terminal truncated, soluble Spike protein variants. These soluble Spike variants may initiate severe side effects when binding to ACE2-expressing endothelial cells in blood vessels. In analogy to the thromboembolic events caused by Spike protein encoded by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we termed the underlying disease mechanism the “Vaccine-Induced Covid-19 Mimicry” syndrome (VIC19M syndrome).

    Guardian arcticle:

    Scientists in Germany claim to have solved the cause of the rare blood clotting events linked to the Oxford/AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines and believe the jabs could be fixed to prevent the reaction altogether, the FT (paywall) reports.

    Rolf Marschalek, a professor at Goethe university in Frankfurt who has been leading research into the rare condition since March, said his research showed that the problem lies with the adenovirus vectors that both vaccines use to deliver the spike protein of the virus into the body.

    In a preprint paper published today, the scientists wrote that the delivery mechanism means the vaccines send the spike protein into the cell nucleus as opposed to the cytosol fluid found inside the cell where the virus normally produces proteins.

    According to Marschalek’s research, once inside the cell nucleus, certain parts of the spike protein splice, creating mutant versions, which are unable to bind to the cell membrane where important immunisation takes place; instead, the floating mutant proteins are secreted by cells into the body, which is what triggers blood clots in roughly one in 100,000 people.

    In contrast, with mRNA-based vaccines, such as the BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna jabs, the spike’s genetic material is delivered to the cell fluid and it never enters the nucleus. Marschalek told the FT that when virus genes are in the nucleus they can create “some problems”.

    He believes there is a “way out” if the vaccine developers can adapt the sequence of the spike protein to prevent splicing.

    It seems like we have been living with Covid 19 for far too long, but are you aware that this was a new virus appearing in humans just 18 or so months ago? Witnessing changes in the science knowledge of Covid 19 is a good thing, not something to mock. You call for scientific discourse, but you reject that our understanding of Covid 19 should have ever evolved. Upon a first glance at this virus, scientists should have had all the answers? The fact that our knowledge of this virus has changed, including important routes of transmission, is a testimony to scientific discourse and the proper progression of science.

    The immense amount of research on this virus in the last 18 months has been breathtaking. A new virus emerged and our understanding of its infection routes were pieced together, a dissection of our immune response to this virus published, the genome of the virus was sequenced, and understanding of the function of many of its gene products including immune evasion genes and to top it all off effective safe vaccines have been developed. Now I have really baited you on that last sentence, because I know that your ideology dictates that vaccines are neither safe nor effective, but I actually understand this area of research and I do not base my science on ideology. In fact, my biggest concern was that vaccines might not be efficacious, but also possibly exacerbate infections. The data is here, and I was wrong. The pace of research on this virus has proceeded so rapidly, that discussion of the science will continue for years.

    As far as immunity from vaccines being better than the virus infection, why is this nonsense? Do you have data on this? Do you understand the function of all of the ORFs of the virus including immune evasion genes and understand how they interact with the host immune system? Do you understand the adjuvants used in the vaccines and how they boost immunogenicity? You probably know very little of this, but based on your ideology you dismiss this possibility. What has happened to scientific discussion! For the record, I am not saying that vaccines will offer better protection that a natural Covid 19 infection, but I have no data or reason to assume one way or another. What I can say is that immunity acquired through a vaccine does not lead to virus spread and pose a risk to unvaccinated or vaccine non-responders.

    Science is in no way dead. Scientific literacy in the public is suffering from a plague of misinformation from social media. Most scientists that I know, who actually understand science, are confounded by how pseudoscience has reached so many people. Social media platforms have their algorithms to reinforce information, real or false, onto their readers ultimately convincing them that their world, even when based on misinformation, is the real truth. This is based on our tendency to believe social truths (to believe what people in your circle believe) rather than evidence based truths. This is what social media does, it creates a tight circle of social truths that are never challenged but always reinforced. I fear this social media plague will be far worse than this pandemic.

      True, but it does lead to a serious risk that the fragment of DNA that codes for the spike protein will end up in at least some people’s genome. Given enough ‘booster’ shots and that might read everyone’s genome.

      The quality of science is not really measured by the sheer volume of bumf generated.

      Thank you, Kennie, for continuing the comedy show. I’m not sure why I’m addressing this to you, as you clearly haven’t been following the papers published by the BMJ, NEJM, Lancet etc. as linked on this blog. So you probably won’t read this anyway. But, never one to give up, here we go.

      Yes, all the answers were there well before 2020. We already deal with four coronaviruses every day. We know the impact of coronaviruses on a population totally lacking in immunity. But we also knew very early on that at least 20%, and maybe 50%, of the population had immunity to this new one. Subsequent research using fresh blood samples from never-infected people puts this naturally acquired immunity at 81%. Which is why the infection rates are so low.

      You don’t have enough data to declare that the vaccines are effective. Perhaps you don’t know the difference between effective and efficacy. Oh, wait, you claim this is your area of expertise. Rather embarrassing for you.

      Safety? Definitely not, depending on your age and co-morbidities. Definitely not safe for young healthy people where the risks exceed the benefits.

      Immunity from the virus better than vaccines? Of course! Natural, virus stimulated immunity provided protection against 44 out of 45 variants, and partial protection against the 45th. Also look up Makary, from Johns Hopkins, for his latest comments including the insanity of the WHO saying that herd immunity can ONLY be obtained through vaccination.

      Adjuvants? Which Covid vaccines have adjuvants? Oh dear …..

      Science, or rather pseudoscience, is plagued by people with bits of paper that leads themselves to proclaim themselves as experts, which excuses them from having to take any notice of data. After all, as an expert, they just “know”. No need to bother with any new research.

      No, I’m not bothering to re-supply the links. If you are really interested, it’s easy enough to search my posts for them.

        “Adjuvants? Which Covid vaccines have adjuvants? Oh dear ”

        I also wondered about that, because these ‘vaccines’ work by causing human cells to produce the toxic spike protein, which then activates the immune system – presumably after any adjuvants have been flushed out of the body.

      Since the SARS Cov 2 is only 20% different from SARS Cov 1, then the “scientists” did have most of the answers. Those who were infected with SARS Cov 1 had immunity to SARS Cov 2. To say SARS Cov 2 is “a novel virus” which has never before been seen is disingenuous. All viruses have ancestors, and this one is no different.

      Months after recovery from mild COVID-19, when antibody levels in the blood have declined, immune cells in bone marrow remain ready to pump out new antibodies against the coronavirus, researchers reported in Nature.
      By Reuters Staff

      (Reuters) – Months after recovery from mild COVID-19, when antibody levels in the blood have declined, immune cells in bone marrow remain ready to pump out new antibodies against the coronavirus, researchers reported in Nature.

      Upon infection, short-lived immune cells are generated quickly to secrete an early wave of protective antibodies. As the immune cells die out, antibody levels decline. But a pool of these immune cells, called long-lived plasma cells, is held in reserve after infection. Most of them migrate to the bone marrow, explained coauthor Ali Ellebedy of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis in email to Reuters.

      Ellebedy’s team obtained bone marrow samples from 19 patients seven months after the onset of mild COVID-19. Fifteen had long-lived plasma cells secreting antibodies against the coronavirus. Five of the 15 had second bone marrow biopsies 11 months after symptom onset and all still had long-lived plasma cells secreting antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.

      Ellebedy, in a statement, noted that these cells are “just sitting in the bone marrow and secreting antibodies. They have been doing that ever since the infection resolved, and they will continue doing that indefinitely… These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives.”

      It is not clear yet whether the same results would be seen in survivors of moderate to severe COVID-19, the authors said.

        There are many, many things I have learned during this pandemic. One of them is that immunology is complex. Very, very much so. And only fractionally understood. All the talk has been about antibodies. I have learned that immunity neither begins nor ends with antibodies. Way more to it than that.

      If covid is a new virus, why do so many people have prior immunity to it and why is its mortality so low? Compared with ebola or SARS or MERS, covid is a bad flu. Those were actually new viruses.

      Sorry to have to say this, but you are a very credulous, unscientific person. You need to develop some critical thinking skills. Science isn’t merely what some “authorities” say it is–it is the research done regarding the natural world around us. That research is far from settled about things you think are settled.

      How do you know that the vaccines are safe and effective? Do you think you are God who can see the future? And why don’t you bother with VAERS data which is empirical evidence that Something Is Not Quite Right? And why is it that deaths started declining in the US back in late December, ahead of the vaccination program? And since PCR is unreliable for clinical research involving viral transmission, there is no way to know if vaccines are effective without culturing the virus.

      Your nonsense about pseudo-science was refuted back in the 1980s by a fellow named Feyerabend. Why don’t you move into modern times?

    I’ve just posted this on the other post, but it’s incredibly important I feel. Please read these excerpts from a chapter detailing the logic of the New World Order in Bill Cooper’s 1989 book ‘Behold a Pale Horse’. It’ll blow your mind. The power elites were warned by leading intellectuals that over population could result in the possible extinction of the human race.

    “They were told that the only things that could stop these predicted events would be severe cutbacks of the human population, the cessation or retardation of technological and economic growth, the elimination of meat in the human diet, strict control of future reproduction, a total commitment to preserving the environment….

    It was determined that an immediate attack on the problem would involve two points of intervention. The first was to lower the birth rate and the second was to increase the death rate.

    The chief recommendation was to develop a microbe which would attack the autoimmune system and thus render the development of a vaccine impossible…The microbe would be used against the general population and would be introduced by VACCINE! ..The cure will be administered to the survivors when it is decided enough people have died. The cure will be announced as newly developed when it has in fact existed from the beginning.”

    FROM 1989! .

    Hi Dr. Malcom,

    I have been reading your blog posts for over a year – and remember some of your frustration – e.g. ‘the mad billionaire that wanted to vaccinate the whole planet.’ And I can see by your latest post you are feeling really frustrated.

    First let me stop and say well done to you, and that I think there are many thousands of people who are grateful for your courage in speaking up against the massive disinformation campaign that has been foisted on the world by the Bill Gates-WHO-CCP-Democrats-World Economc Forum-EU-UN alliance.

    This campaign is literally World War 3 – this political and business alliance of the world’s elites who have been waging war on humanity to seize power through trying to force each of the steps on us all – lockdown, set the vaccine agenda in place, wait for the vaccines, vaccinate everyone – and then force everyone to get digital passports masquerading as vaccine passports. It has been about 1. slowing down the worlds economy 2. forcing a system of global surveillance and censorship 3. genocide by lockdowns, virus deaths, vaccines etc…reducing population for the climate change lunatics.

    And now the World Health Organization, backed by the lunatics in the G20-EU alliance, are trying to grab even greater power over the world, without even admitting to any of its liability in messing up the world – because it was intentional. If you haven’t seen it already, and chances are you haven’t – read the article below about the WHO power grab.

    What we have seen play out since the day the WHO called a pandemic is a neo-Marxist agenda, that has decimated societies, public health, and economies across the globe. That was always their intention from day one. This has been in the planning for a long time.

    And that is why I am calling it World War 3 – it is bioterrorism and psychological warfare on a global scale masquerading as a health crisis. And when they realized that their scary virus wasn’t really that dangerous they have brutally waged their war with misinfomation masquerading as facts, calling truth misinformation – and by using the global multinatioal liberal media companies and Big Tech they have successfully silenced their critics and kept the majority of the public in a state of fear and compliance.

    There is a long fight ahead – but many people are stepping up to fight.

    And your fight against misinformation, like many in your profession across the globe, is what has enlightened people like me, and MILLIONS OF OTHERS – who are FIGHTING BACK.

    If you are watching the Republican-Democrat conflict in the United States – you might have already noticed that the Republican governors and senators are fighting back, and developing real backbone. This conflict is making them strong while their opposition the Democrats are all corrupt weaklings bought and paid for and acting act a script.

    Keep doing what you do – voices LIKE YOURS – are very important.

    Keep up your great work. Because you are helping people to have the backbone, and the knowledge to fight back.

    There is a dark winter ahead of us – but we will come out of it in the end, because the world is filled with wonderful people of honesty, integrity and science – JUST LIKE YOU!!!

    best regards as always

      And how are you fighting back? I see the Melbourne has gone into another lockdown… but I am not seeing hordes taking to the streets to oppose this decision…

      I am looking at Ontario Canada where there is now a plan to maybe re-open in July. We all know that this will be pushed back again… or they may open a crack then slam it tight the minute the infections inevitably rise (as this things do when vaccines don’t stop people from contracting covid)

      Are the streets of Toronto filled with anti-vaxxers and anti-lockdowners? Nope.

      The silent majority is doing what they are told – staying home — wearing masks — getting vaxxed — and snitching on anyone who dares to threaten their safety by pushing back on the lie.

      And the medical profession? Nah …. similarly most of them are just following orders… giving jabs on demand …. at best a small percentage are explaining to patients the risks … but almost none are refusing to administer the injections.

      I don’t blame them for not wanting to blow up their careers. Because most of them do not believe Yeadon or Bossche (who differ on the method but agree on the end game) when they say the vaccines are a death trap … if they did then their careers would be the least of their worries…

      And then what? How is this working out for Mike and Geert? 99.999999% of the world has never heard of them.

        What I am pleasantly surprised at is how quickly narratives are reversing. The Wuhan lab is no becoming a mainstream talking point, history is being revised at many media organisations and Twitter/fb are removing content bans. Even Fauci’s funding of the Wuhan Institute isn’t getting the fact checkers’s knickers in a twist! Imagine the furore if twelve months ago anyone had suggested Fauci was funding gain of function research into coronaviruses at the WIV.

    OMG! Is this one of the quarantine camps we were told did not exist?

    No booze, no sunbathing, lots of Vegemite: Welcome to quarantine at Howard Springs, NT

    In Australia’s northern quarantine camp, a disused construction workers’ hostel outside Darwin, the rooms are basic and the food is, well, institutional. But the fresh air, eucalyptus trees, blue skies and wind on your skin are sources of joy.

    Native green parrots chirrup as they swoop by. Geckos cling to the veranda ceiling. The blinding sun reminds you that you are home.

    Reaching Australia is difficult during the coronavirus pandemic and, for many, can take months. People at the camp in Howard Springs feel lucky. Few complain about the rubbery pillows, uncomfortable beds, limited furnishings or soggy sandwiches in a centre that politicians call the “gold standard”.

    To endure 14 days of quarantine, I ordered treats from the local supermarket: a jar of Vegemite, the ultimate childhood comfort food for Australians, and a pack of Vita-Weats, the tooth-jarring crackers that Australians use to administer the black, salty breakfast spread. I acquired bitter Australian tea to make a strong, dark brew.

    Getting here from Moscow took four days, including three in special pre-flight quarantine in a Frankfurt airport hotel to take a coronavirus test from the centre approved by Qantas, the Australian carrier.

    The sprawling, fenced camp known as the Northern Territory Centre for National Resilience once housed 3500 construction workers in squat prefab units that Australians call “dongas”. They have grey linoleum floors and walls, harsh fluorescent lighting, battered Venetian blinds and fire-engine-red furniture. The feeling is part trailer camp, part hospital, part prison.

    Teams wearing personal protective gear and wheeling carts deliver food once a day about 5pm and leave it on the baking veranda step. (Although they might forget you.)

    Nurses rap sharply on the door for random early-morning temperature checks or coronavirus tests. Police and soldiers patrol, occasionally shouting at people to put on masks. And there is a 39-page booklet of rules and procedures. All this, for the price of a good hotel room.

    The rules are detailed: no alcohol, no care parcels, no restaurant deliveries, no balls, no sunbathing, no metal silverware, no scissors or sharp implements, no cooking in the kettle, no putting food waste into the hand basin (who does that, anyway?), no electrical appliances, no stepping off your balcony except for rubbish disposal and three allotted weekly laundry spots, no skateboards or inline skates, no swimming or playing in the drains when it rains, no noise after 9.30pm.

    Bags are searched and people can be fined if they don’t wear masks outside. Supermarket orders are allowed.

    Well I’ve been parading my KEEP BRITAIN FREE T-shirt around our busy tourist abode – shopping road and long Sandy beach. Plenty of people sitting enjoying the sun and sea. Did they take any notice of my message? They did not! Barely a glance.

    I think the slogan could have a mixed meaning. It could mean “ Keep Britain Free of Covid” or “Keep foreigners out”. Quelle horreur! It doesn’t help that I’m a 71 year old woman and most 71 year old women have the opposite view to mine, so that is what might be inferred. (I might be expected to be respectable.) Also, the ‘Keep Britain’ letters are a bit small and the slogan is only on the front of the shirt and not on the back.

    So my T-shirt is about to become rags.

    It makes any success I had with my I LOVE CHOLESTEROL T-shirts seem much greater.

    Any slogan ideas for Covid that would fit well on T-shirts?

    What I find most chilling is the attitude of doctors when presented with patients suffering from, by now surely well known, symptoms of post-‘vaccination’ i.e. spike protein serious damage. My niece (second dose ChAd vaccine) has been lined up for blood tests for everything apart from anything that might help while she is in serious muscular pain, extreme fatigue, and debilitating headache.
    If someone presented after a road crash with multiple fractures and obvious contusions, any doctor suggesting bed rest and paracetamol would be struck off – but that is effectively what is happening in our ‘wonderful’ NHS under current political leadership.

Nebulising with hydrogen peroxide saline and iodine as per Dr Bernstein and Dr Levy, both on Dr Mercola’s website. Seramin and shikimic acid, in pine needles, star anise and fennel, is mentioned by Dr Judy Mikovits who knows what she’s talking about. Vitamin C, D and zinc.
      Radionics practitioners, herbalists and homeopaths are worth approaching. A mushroom essence made from Algae Maze Polypore, Cerrena unicolor or homeopathically will help but you need a real specialist for that, although you could use it radionically and closely observe response.

        Homeopathically the cure for Covid is arsenic 30. I think we’ll have marketing issues with that. Cure for the vaccinosis? Almost certainly several different remedies, depending on the side effects. Like any vaccine, the side effects are far more difficult to treat than the disease.

    Hancock says that:
    “…vaccination is “severing” the link between COVID-19 cases, hospital admissions, and deaths but it was too early to commit to England’s next easing of lockdown measures due on 21 June.”

    But given that the vaccine (more strictly, the inoculation) actually doesn’t stop infection or reinfection (so-called breakthrough infections), is anyone keeping count of the number of people inoculated who are catching the bug again? This could mean, as I predicted last year, that the ‘off again, on again’ madness of lockdowns could go on forever, it’s already approaching 18 months!

    I’m not sure what ‘severing the link’ means, is this more newsspeak?

    Highly educated people partake of this lockdown insanity. We are currently experiencing what looks like the beginnings of a third wave and waiting for the government’s response. A professor of epidemiology or infectious diseases or something (didn’t catch it exactly), but anyway he is someone the government consults with, was interviewed on the radio about the possibility of increased restrictions.

    The Eastern Cape is one of our worst-hit provinces. The professor said something along the lines of, “When they imposed a strict lockdown in Eastern Cape, it took six weeks for it to take effect, so I’d prefer to lockdown now sooner rather than later.”

    I wanted to scream that the incubation period of Covid is six days, so you should start seeing the effect of the lockdown after six days, not six weeks. If you have to wait six weeks it means the virus has run its course and finally started running out of new people to infect. The lockdown had nothing to do with it.

    I pointed this out to the talk show host in a Whatsapp, but predictably got no response. People are afraid to think for themselves, or too scared to depart from the party line even if they think it’s nonsense.

    Most people seem to think that the world economy is going through a temporary disruption, caused by a novel coronavirus. As soon as COVID-19 goes away, they expect the economy will be back to normal. I think that this assessment is overly optimistic. The way I see the situation, the world economy was already having severe growth problems, caused indirectly by resource problems, even before COVID-19 hit.

    In a growing world economy, a person might expect that workers would be getting richer, so that they could afford an increasing quantity of goods and services. What we really see is something very different. The number of new automobiles sold was falling in many major countries long before COVID-19 hit, even as population was generally rising. Clearly, something was seriously wrong.

    As I see the situation, the world has a resource problem. Resources of many kinds, including fresh water, energy products, and minerals of many kinds were becoming more difficult (and expensive) to extract, even before 2020. Substitution might have worked if the problem were only one or two resources, but not with several major resources. Cutting back was the only answer.

    Thus, the shutdowns for COVID-19 came at a convenient time, allowing economies that were already doing poorly to shut down. Needless to say, there was no world leader who was willing to explain this hidden issue to the world population. Instead, world leaders used standardized code words such as “we need to move to renewables” or “we need to reduce carbon use by 2050 to prevent climate change.” Unfortunately, the ability to move to alternatives in this time frame is simply an illusion, allowing world leaders to avoid mentioning the serious resource issues that the world economy is really facing.

We know it cannot last yet the outcome is so awful we print more again. Suddenly comes Covid and we are not even working for a year. We consume but no longer produce…funding it with impossible amounts of further debt. The amounts are so large now, and given so freely and with no particular end in sight. My own feeling is that they are deliberately degrading the currency now.

      The End?
      I’ve asked this question here once already but could this jump in (some of the) ‘cases’ be the result of the ‘vaccine’ itself? As someone else pointed out, administering the ‘vaccine’ in the middle of the ‘pandemic’ surely just muddies the waters? We know that the ‘vaccine’ doesn’t stop a person getting infected, or infecting others, the drug companies themselves say this. This just points to a situation of pretty much permanent lockdown, release, lockdown, release ad infinitum! Is this the objective?

        I don’t know. But a similar thing happened in the Seychelles earlier this month. A country with a higher vaccination rate than the UK or Israel, but it briefly had a higher case rate (per capita) than India. We’ll never know what happens in the US now they count vaccinated COVIDSafe differently to the unvaccinated.

        Meanwhile in locked down Victoria, with around 15,000 close contacts, the highly transmissible Indian double variant, with an incubation period of just over a day, has managed to infect five more people. You’ve got more chance of winning in the lottery ……

            As I say, I don’t know. There are several options. Firstly, it could, as you say, be a new variant, which is not affected by whatever immunity is stimulated by the jab. It could be an escape variant, which might be said to have been caused by the virus. It’s definitely the case that people’s immunity may have been compromised by the jab rendering them more susceptible to the virus – so one could also blame the virus for the infections (plenty of studies on vaccine compromised immunity). It could be shedding of spike proteins, if that really occurs.

            The data isn’t available to us, if it’s available at all. Infections and cases tend to be reported by country, or in some instances by state (e.g. India, USA). What I found interesting was that when you looked at state data, or even county data, in the US (thanks KennieG) that it became clear that lockdowns and masks were, if not totally ineffective, making the situation worse. So we need more than a couple of countries, or defined areas, with the issue to be able to form a conclusion. And we will have to form that conclusion by ourselves, as I can’t see any government admitting that there is a systemic problem with vaccines.

            Or, it could be that the ‘vaccine’ doesn’t actually protect one at all, but merely (and hopefully) ameliorate the symptoms, else why would the ‘vaccine’ makers not give a guarantee on either the issue of protection or, which seems to me to be the most important factor, not prevent infection?

            Absolutely. Although the Pfizer and Moderna ones claim a reduction in infections in their saline placebo trials. AZ’s only saline trial, in South Africa, indicated that the vaccine is useless. A bit of a lottery, it seems. A shot in the dark, rather than a shot in the arm.

            Nice find! And here’s another, for US states from March. Not quite as sciencey in presentation as Delépine’s, but identical results.

            https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/03/no_author/portentous-sign-covid-cases-spike-in-a-dozen-states-with-high-vaccination-rates-which-may-signal-a-feared-health-catastrophe/

            We know that in the Seychelles for their recent spike one third of those who tested positive (yes, I know, whatever that means!) in the week to 8th May had been fully vaccinated. How many had been partially vaccinated? Why isn’t the vaccine working? “Variants” is the official explanation in most cases, but I doubt that they have the data to back that up – and it’s strange how the variants seem to target high vaccination areas. I doubt that the vaccine could be responsible for allowing the propagation of breakthroughs so quickly so simultaneously.

            More importantly, why does the vaccine seem to be causing cases? And this has led to the ultimate in dystopian government behaviour in several countries, Nepal and the Seychelles for certain, plus from memory Thailand – almost compulsory vaccination, which is implicated in causing Covid, has triggered further draconian lockdowns resulting in starvation, as they can’t go shopping. While the vaccinations continue.

            Meanwhile in Victoria, that ultra contagious 18-second-exposure-and-you’re-dead B.1617.2 variant of which there are 15,000 “close” contacts managed to infect another four (4, quatre, vier, lau, fjórir) people. Hang in there you Cabbage Farmers, only four more days of total lockdown to go and then you’ll be safe again. p.s. don’t forget you can risk getting the virus legally if you feel the need to nip out and get the vaccine.

    Dr Kendrick, regarding your assertion: “We were told that COVID19 was spread by touching contaminated surfaces… Really?”

    I would like to refer you to an article from May last year (my bold)
    https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/05/study-tells-remarkable-story-about-covid-19-s-deadly-rampage-through-south-african

    Now, scientists at the University of KwaZulu-Natal have published a detailed reconstruction of how the virus spread from ward to ward and between patients, doctors, and nurses, based on floor maps of the hospital, analyses of staff and patient movements, and viral genomes. Their 37-page analysis, posted on the university’s website on 22 May, is the most extensive study of any hospital outbreak of COVID-19 so far. It suggests all of the cases originated from a single introduction, and that patients rarely infected other patients. Instead, the virus was mostly carried around the hospital by staff and on the surfaces of medical equipment.

    “It’s a remarkable story and testimony to the virus’ capacity to spread through a facility if appropriate controls are not in place,” says Michael Klompas, an infectious disease specialist at Harvard Medical School who was not involved in the study.

      “We think in the main it’s likely” (to have spread by surface contact) is not scientific proof. It’s not even science. There is nothing in that article which indicates that transmission was by surface contact, merely the three consecutive conditional opinions. Everything in the article says they don’t know.

      Why post such nonsense?

    Thank you so much for continuing to fight for science and the scientific method. If the GMC stops you practicing it will be a travesty.

    Thank you for speaking your mind and for all you say and stand for. I so hope you do not give up as your voice is invaluable. I have always been interested in my health and taking responsibility for myself and thinking for myself (in most areas of my life). It is not always an easy path but independent thought is vital. If we stand up against this incredibly low and stagnant ‘follow like sheep, head in the sand’ energy, with as many voices as possible – and be awake – we will ultimately make a difference to our future and the planet.
    Some of the professionals/politicians are weak because they are only protecting their positions – (whether they are aware of it or not) – by not allowing free speech. It is so depressing to hear all the radio presenters dumbing down people who ring in with a different point of view. We simply have to believe in our truth and live it.

    Thanks for another interesting blog post. I’m sorry to hear that you are being attacked, it must be very frustrating and tiring for them.

    I caught a brief interview with the MP Meg Hillier the other day who was discussing the findings of the Public Accounts Committee regarding the take up of electric vehicles in the UK. It may have just been the editing by the news organization but the main points were that the high purchase cost of the vehicles, the lack of charging points and the high cost of charging away from home needed to be addressed to achieve 2030 government targets of banning the sale of new petrol and diesel cars.

    There was no mention of the availability of the raw materials needed to manufacture the batteries and no mention of the capacity to generate the electricity required to charge the vehicles and the ability of the electrical grid to transmit the power to homes and businesses.

    There was also no mention of the demand that will need to be met when homes and businesses will have to switch from gas to electricity for heating, water heating and cooking. This will all be in competition for electricity with the end of liquid fuels for cars. Perhaps smart meters will be used to balance demand for electricity and secure the stability of the grid by simply turning off supply to homes and businesses deemed not to be priorities? A £5-£10K cost for new electric boilers may mean that people simply are unable to heat their homes or do so in a costly fashion which will reduce demand for electricity. Also electricity is approximately four times more expensive than gas per kw/h to purchase at a retail level.

    I also saw a report by the IEA that there could be almost 230m electric vehicles on roads around the world by 2030. That’s vehicles for the US sorted then.

    We’ve all gotten used to new strains of COVID being named after countries and counties so the next logical step for the virus will be to be named after towns, streets or even postal sectors. Perhaps, when it is mandatory to carry your smart phone everywhere for vaccination passports, the government can use their new emergency alert system currently being tested to instruct people to go home immediately and isolate if a rise in cases is detected in an area. Or to turn around if you are travelling into a high COVID cases area.

    If vaccination passports require regular covid test results to be attached it will probably transpire that people will have to pay for these tests themselves at some point if they want to participate in their lives, you know to work and eat etc. The mandatory purchase of these tests should result in demand for non essential items and activities being reduced which will have a positive impact on man made climate change.

    With the high cost of cars, the cost to charge them and the future hassle of travelling brought about by COVID perhaps very few people will have cars? Buses and cycle lanes are being talked about a lot lately.

    For all but the very special it could be that the time of owning your own vehicle is definitely über.

    Perhaps a little of the real truth is finally escaping into the mainstream press.

    You can register with the Daily Telegraph for free for a short time.

    The article mentions “gain of function research”, so how long will it be before they unearth (or perhaps dare to publish) the contracts signed by various US agencies to pay for that research?

    I’m probably hoping for too much, but it would be absolutely splendid to see the whole story unearthed for all to see. Then heads might roll – possibly literally.

      David Bailey: The documents have been unearthed. The largest funder of the GoF research was the Pentagon, through Peter Daszak’s Ecohealth Alliance. Other federal agencies, such as Fauci’s NIAID, the State Department, even Interior, contributed as well. The whole seamy story was presented on the Highwire two or three weeks ago, and Senator Rand Paul grilled Fauci about it recently in a Senate hearing. But heads will not roll; they never do any more. A commission will be established that is designed to fail, just as the Warren Commission (JFK assassination), and the 9/11 Commission were.

      So if this is true, then is it the US or the Chinese? Seems to me that if the US paid for this research into ‘gain of function’, then the Chinese institute is nothing more than a contractor for the US government!

      And the more I think about it, why would the US pay for such research to its competitor (as the US govt describes China)? It simply doesn’t make sense. Furthermore, its Fauci’s CDC that has financed the Wuhan institute. Frankly, I think the story stinks.

    I think it may be time to build a ship – we could call it the Mayflower 3. I’ve seen enough people on Dr Kendrick’s blog to realise there would be enough expertise in various fields to make a go of it. Location anyone?

    The people that have looked for the truth have found it by now. The rest have swallowed the media BS or just don’t care. I don’t think they can be rescued.

      I would certainly sail on such a ship. Truth is all I’m concerned with. Truth is the most important gift, after God’s grace, that we have. Truth IS God, if you read Our Lord in St. John’s Gospel.

      and it will still work as a link.
